Everyone saying β€œLabour would have won without Corbyn” is forgetting that the last Labour leader got absolutely massacred in the press, largely due to how he ate a fucking sandwich. It’s all absolutely fucking fucked.

At least now all those politicians and news outlets who so vigorously and publicly called out antisemitism in the Labour Party will now go back to their regular work of fighting antisemitism in every other walk of life. ✨S I L E N C E✨

Writing a book is like baking a cake. Your first draft is the sponge, your next draft is the icing, then you realise you left a fork inside the cake and when you try rooting around for it without ruining the decorations you discover you’ve used mince instead of flour.

Weet je nog die leuke puzzel die ik laatst mocht leggen? ABZzz ligt nu in de boekhandel op je te wachten, precies op tijd voor al die slapeloze decembernachten (ik ga er zelfs spontaan van rijmen).
