So what have those who 'strategically' did not vote Corbyn at the general election to 'prevent Brexit' achieved?   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Well let's turn to Mark Steel for what our new tory government and Prime Minister will no doubt be doing to us, and all who voted for anyone, whether Corbyn or not:

<< We're in safe hands. A two-to-one majority of Conservative members who will choose our next prime minister would be willing to accept "significant economic damage" to secure Brexit. Even more, would accept a break up of the UK.

I expect 85 per cent would be happy to "have the house filled with fox s***, even the fridge, and the cupboard full of broken board games and the coffee pot if it ensured Brexit". Seventy-nine per cent "would be prepared to hand their children to a trafficking gang for up to nine years" if it meant we definitely left the EU on 31 October, because sometimes you have to make sacrifices for the greater good.

We might be crawling through the woods eating maggots, but at least we'll know the EU can't tell us they have to be less wriggly or we can't call them maggots. >>
Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Meanwhile the Royal Variety comedians have yet to come up with a single funny joke this century, after years of agonising over it and so very many attempts, the bulk of them televised, merchandised and monetised fully.

Removal of resistance: Robert Webb recently tried: he made a joke on Twitter in which he said something like "if Jeremy Corbyn isn't evil and satan reborn then my bell-end can play Beehoven's ninth on the piano" - I mentioned to him (see numberwang article below) that he was actually no more successful in getting fans for himself, really, than a popular tampon (for example) - ie that he doesn't gain fans through his comedy just through advertising and so on.

For whatever reason, Webb did, as far as I can see, delete his stupid comment about bell-ends. Perhaps that means he realises that he hasn't yet made a funny joke and must try some more.
Unification: Steel demonstrates how funny you can be if you aren't a sycophant to power and an obedient tool, the way your average establishment comedian tends to be, whether or not Mitchell and Webb, Baddiel, or any of these stick figures (who drive those of us with taste to buy a lot of old dvds, or just write our own comedy and entertainment generally) will ever do anything other than waste humanity's time and resources and fail to be funny, intelligent or useful in any way but to their egos and need for gratification.

Steel on the honesty of many of the racist white and token moral-cowards I went to school with, ie tories (and blairites) - this just about sums up most of the people I sat with when I learned that you should try to be intelligent and honest - I guess they were only at that school to get 'cv points', not to actually learn what our teachers were teaching: << Some of us will reassure ourselves that many Tory MPs are violently opposed to him, but they'll issue statements that start: "I'm aware I pledged if Boris Johnson becomes leader I would become a suicide bomber to blow him up, and let the remains of his floppy hair scattered across my charred body be a lasting epitaph for this holy act; but upon consideration, I believe he's an excellent leader and I'm delighted to serve under him as junior minister for kiwi fruits." >>

Indeed, so many years after Greg Dyke pointed out how << hideously white >> the bbc is, it still hasn't evolved or begun to make anything which could possibly match the talent British television shone its light on back in the 70s and 80s.

Can Mitchell and Web or David Baddiel or such weak 'comedians' claim they are any more responsible for who becomes their 'fan' than a tampon's innate excellence determines whether or not women buy it? How much of the cause of watching crap like Webb or Baddiel is 'the power of marketing' and the distribution-end determination of audiences - rather than, as with someone like Steel or Dave Chappelle, say, their fans' being brought to them by how well they take the piss out of those others cannot - eg people with immense power and authority who misuse that? Read the numberwang article to consider the matter more deeply.
