Also seeing as the child sex abuse scandal hasnt drummed up that much media or really bruised the legacies of those in Thatchers inner sanctum I doubt this will force his resignation.
It is gross but at the same time it brings this Eton snot down a few notches, makes him seem almost you know human...it could go both ways. People are finding it hysterical and debauched but its not the kind of debauchery that rattles peoples minds. Also drunken college escapades nearly every college grad has such a story. Pig fellation is out there but the things I saw when I lived on campus...
Yeah very true, all of these people are well protected and its not like its the first time hes done something totally disgusting, pretty much most of his actions are disgusting and hes still there. Still cant believe those dirty bastards got back in the last election although at the same time am not at all surprised that they did, its all fixed, its all a total farce dressed up to look like democracy but everybody knows its a farce. I thought that the way things were going downhill there would be riots in the streets by now but no, nothing, not a thing, some small protests that fall on deaf ears or ears and eyes that can make no difference. Its going to take more than a revolution to fix this mess.
It'll likely die down in a couple of weeks and be forgotten about.
I do wonder though about the Black Mirror episode. I mean if the idea of something so gross was planted in everybody's heads a few years ago, in a fictional program!? I mean that was just fiction right but what if having that idea planted in peoples heads was deliberate I mean it would then associate the real thing with being fiction and also having already seen that played out in a storyline gives it a few years for the idea of it to sink in and for people to I dunno accept and deal with it and move on so that when it came out as being something real the association with it being fiction has already been made and people have already dealt with the grossness a few years earlier!?
Not saying that Charlie Brooker is in on it, who knows maybe he is or maybe somehow that idea as a storyline was planted in his head, now I know that sounds a bit insane BUT have any of you ever watched any of Derren Browns programs? There was one called the heist where he got a few people and they thought they were doing some positive self hypnosis course or something like that but he basically in a way brainwashed them by making associations with various images and music and other methods but the end result was that he got almost all of them to rob a security van when they were triggered by music, an advert on a billboard and the opportunity to rob somebody. Ive probably not explained this very well but if he can do something like that then its very possible that ideas can be pushed on people I mean they use stuff like this in advertising to make people want to buy crap they don't really need or want.
Or maybe the fact that it happened meant it was already out there in the noosphere and he just happened to pick up on that or maybe its just random coincidence!
