Just how did this happen? The last thing anyone predicted was that 2012 would be dominated neither by an expansion of Occupy nor a resurgence of right-wing populism. Instead we have a government that is doing exactly the same thing British governments have done for the last 30 years, ie. moderately strengthening and deepening neoliberal expansion. I don't care if Labour get in next time around, they show absolutely no sign that they'd do anything other than very cautiously modify the right-of-centre agenda; I mean, I seriously doubt whether wondercunts like Balls and the MilliPods would even have the fucking guts to roll back Osborne's latest attempt to play Battleships with the human rights of the populace with this "shares for rights" fucking travesty. What a fucking fucking bunch of fucking cunts.

But seeing as this is The Fantastic Hope an all (although in this instance The Barely Excusable Escapism is far more accurate) ...

I was saved from a total nervous collapse yesterday by getting properly acquainted with the new Nas album, moments of which are so astonishingly accomplished and vital, it literally made the hairs on the back of my neck bristle.

Sum highlights:

Music is good. Even if life isn't.
