I saw Rowling recently scoff at the idea that she hates Corbyn because he will make her pay tax, because she's in Scotland and won't be affected by it.
Sorry fucko but if it gets to Chile levels of violence we're coming up there and ripping you out of your mansion.
RED BROWN ALLIANCE AGAINST LIBERALS WHEN?
TIME FOR ANTI-JKROWLING AKTION
Excuse me what?
I don't know, I don't know much about Scotland but I wasn't sure that was how it worked.
Two separate legal systems, I believe.
Like 1% of business rates and incomes from VAT are devolved, that's it.
This is true but not relevant.
Harry Potter and the Adventure to Gulag
"The rich shall be ripped from their decadent nests and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure."
Can anyone tell me why all these UK Libs think that Corbyn and McDonald saying "We should fight for the working class" or whatever is codeword for "Fuck da Joos XD" ?
Because they think he's an antisemite and everything he says or does proves this. The editor of the largest Jewish paper in the UK said him calling for banking regulations was an attack upon Jews.
Courts will be convened. Spoils will be enjoyed. Blood will be shed. The police will survive, as they learn to serve true justice. This great country… it will endure. Britain will survive!

Countdown Crypto-Fascist confirmed?
The entire media wants nothing more than to destroy us on TV to continue their lavish lifestyles.
If they escalate this situation to the point of insurrection they'll all be held accountable, no matter how much everyone wants a titwank off them.
IT'S JUST LIKE WHEN HARRY KILLED THANOS WITH A LIGHTSABER
All libs are crypto-fascists.
Rowling needs to come face to face with a Nazbol to get a taste of wrath.
This was a lady who called Chomsky an anti-semite. Welcome to Britain in 2019.
The dullest franchises in the history of movie franchises. Each episode following the boy wizard and his pals from Hogwarts Academy as they fight assorted villains has been indistinguishable from the others. Aside from the gloomy imagery, the series’ only consistency has been its lack of excitement and ineffective use of special effects, all to make magic unmagical, to make action seem inert.
Perhaps the die was cast when Rowling vetoed the idea of Spielberg directing the series; she made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art that meant anything to anybody?just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for her books. The Harry Potter series might be anti-Christian (or not), but it’s certainly the anti-James Bond series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and excitement. No one wants to face that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to.
The writing is dreadful; the book was terrible. As I read, I noticed that every time a character went for a walk, the author wrote instead that the character "stretched his legs."
I began marking on the back of an envelope every time that phrase was repeated. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Rowling's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that she has no other style of writing. Later I read a lavish, loving review of Harry Potter by the same Stephen King. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these kids are reading Harry Potter at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on to read Stephen King." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you read "Harry Potter" you are, in fact, trained to read Stephen King.
Btw the reason the Eton-Journo complex is revving-up is that an election is highly likely regardless if May's deal passes or fails: porky is scared tae fuck.
First world scum.
For those who haven't seen it, I recommend a documentary called The Lobby produced by Al Jazeera. It's about how the Israel embassy in London lobbies against the BDS movement in England and is also busy smearing Corbyn with all the anti-semitism nonsense. You can find it in YouTube. An interesting watch.
Harry Potter and the prisoner of Uzbekistan
I'm really glad I never read Harry Potter, or played Minecraft for that manner, there was always something about fans of those things that repulsed me and now I understand
Is it true that JK Rowling is a billionaire?
I thought I heard that she recently fell back into the pit of being a mega-millionaire because of philanthropy.
Further proof that he can never be wrong
a bad take singularity.
god i fucking hate the spectator. of all the british press, i really fucking hate the spectator. it's the most smug and insufferable paper of the british right, not so mass market as the daily mail or express (and so not as comically gauche) but infinitely more reactionary, and that's compared to what is already one of the most despicable and disgusting press networks on earth.
Scotland can vary income tax rates a bit (but not bands? maybe. I forget) but at the same time it can't really do so if that means making taxes meaningfully higher than England for obvious reasons involving rich people moving their taxable address. (which is why Scottish politics are tedious and dull. Because they're still basically just running a civil service management department with a fixed-and-declining budget.)
as it stands Scotland's income tax bands are different from England's. gov.uk
50% bad faith
50% british far left love their palestine advocacy but don't really care about jewish issues.
jk is a mess
how can one man be so based?
What are the 'jewish issues' in the UK though
Harry Potter is overated trash
Prove me wrong
What about 30 Hs tho?
labour party not sufficiently zionist or accepting of israeli lobbyist money
look if you don't think its cool that israel has the worlds largest open air internment camp, combined with a forcible sterilization program deployed on any black jews who show up hoping to have a better life in a country that claims to basically be a safe haven and utopia for their religious ethnicity, basically you're a closeted fascist and furthermore,
rich people and upper class white people will act liberal and tolerant because they think there wil never ever be an actual leftist in power. But corbyn just stood up and was all like "alright lets do this" and now you see all the british neolibs tearing their faces off to reveal the bourgeois rat underneath
What is this, why is a """""democratic socialist""""" shitting on corbyn like that
M8 she doesn't even pretend to be a socdem (which ironically has no meaning in the UK now) she just goes around as a liberal.
She did admit it.
The Telegraph is worse than the Spectator. It combines the smug poshness with the gutter journalism of the Mail. But I hate the Guardian most because it pretends to be left-wing. At Christmas they printed this article on Rowling's HILARIOUS anti-Corbyn tweets:
Notice how her bullshit on the income tax thing is not challenged at all.
If I had any talent, I'd draw Harry Potter as a communist and send it to her.
How has nobody posted these yet?
Her estimated net worth is around $1 USD, although she could be a bit over or under the line. Depends how much the Grimes of Crindelwald made at the boxoffice.
50% Davids Icke and Irving, 50% misc anti-semitic attacks (smashing tombstones, swastikas on jewish buildings, ect.)
someone retweet her 1 & 3
she's gonna call the internet police and sue you now if you talk about her middle class upbringing.
How is David Icke anti-semite? Do the brit jews identify as lizards?
harry potter and the order of stalin
He literally endorses the Protocols of the Elders of Zion in one of his books.
Is she going to shoehorn in criticism of communism and Stalin into the sequels, which are going to take place in World War 2?
I eagerly await a lazy caricature of Corbyn as a pied piper attempting to genocide the Jews/muggles.
There is nothing wrong with authoritarianism in itself. Saying "You can never own slaves" is authoritarian.
isn't this the retard who called Yellow Jackets bourgeois?
The bourgeois life is truly soul-sucking. I'd rather be anything else than a porky
Do they think they’re slick?
Is there a liberal more unlikable than Rowling?
How can one man be so autistic?
Tbf there is a fair bit of actual antisemitism in the UK, as there is throughout most of Europe.
I don't mean antizionism obviously, I mean legitimate antisemitism
It's worth noting that the Harry Potter series is actually anti-semitic itself. Hermione comes down on Ron for repeating stereotypes about Goblins and Banking/Money (read: Jews and Banking/Money) but nowhere in the text of the series are these stereotypes shown to be mistaken or are Goblins shown to be likable in any respect. They are depicted as pure money-grubbing grouches and for Rowling that is a-okay, the only thing that is evil is Voldemort's and the Death Eaters attempts to destroy the Goblin controlled banking system.
The message is very clear, cynical exploitation is okay but any attempt to stop or change the identity of the exploiters outside of the market context is evil.
Which flavour of liberalism?
he's right though. all of the specific things he mentioned are spectres of capitalist culture
Israel hurts Jews
