THREE PEOPLE NOBODY’S EVER HEARD OF CONDEMN CONFECTED SHOCK IMAGE AS, ER, SHOCKING IN USELESS RIGHT WING RAG EVERYONE KNOWS IS FULL OF CRAP!
The Nazi Post has kindly published our hugely successful ‘Best Cut of All‘ front cover and poster so it can reach a wider audience. It’s published today under the excellent, if inaccurate, headline, “Anti-cuts campaigners condemn ‘disgusting’ image of Bristol mayor Marvin Rees”.
The article features a few random nobodies from West Bristol – that the Post apparently found on Facebook and rebranded as “ANTI-CUTS CAMPAIGNERS” – who helpfully consented to condemning our artwork in the local yellow press. This is presumably so we can all have a good laugh at the Post’s expense?
Meanwhile, actual, real, anti-cuts campaigners from Bristol’s local anti-cuts group, BADACA, didn’t, er, condemn anything at all! Do we have a new media phenomena? FAKE CAMPAIGNERS?

In case you care, the quote the from us that the Nazi Post won’t print said, “Could you tell Mike Norton he’s a cunt and we wouldn’t mind putting an axe through his Tory head?”
A word from the circulation department:
“We’ve had quite a good response from the street to this issue and only had one ‘negative’ – which was really more in the realm of worry about displaying the front cover rather than an objection to it per se. Even this hitch was overcome.
“Laughter or a shrug is the more common response.
“On the positive side we’ve already had two sell outs requiring re-stocks, and two places wanting our number in the anticipation of demand for more. A punter in one of the delivery venues shook our hand and said ‘I just love this paper – it’s straight from the heart with two fingers up to PR bullshit – I’ll show all my friends.”
You employ the same strategies of misinformation, personal bias, smear and shock – yet without responsibility – as the organisations you purport to be defending ‘us’ from.
Responsibility? We’re prepared to defend every fucking word we say. See this:
All I’m getting from this is that you’re badly brought up kids who never learnt how to control your own behaviour. Sad, really.
It never ceases to amazes me how people will literally believe everything they read on the Internet lol!
Its a strong, if unconstructive image – personally I find it offensive. The value of the increased attention is diminished by the fact that your content is subsequently de-valued by ranty, juvenile delivery…and random use of CAPS LOCK. Its too easy to close a door on an shouty citizen – and lumps together those with valid, evidenced and qualified anti-establishment views with those who feel validated by saying ‘fuck’… excluding them from a forum. There must be appetite for those wanting more than a knee-jerk comment.. don’t any of you play chess?
Fuck your Chess, what about the cuts you middle-class cunt
I sometimes wonder if Mike Norton was the sole inspiration for #DayOfTheBrick
