An Englishman Tells Americans To Suck It Up and Stop Whining

Right. Donald Trump IS the next President of the USA. Britain IS leaving the European Union. Libya is fucked up beyond all recognition. Israel IS continuing to build homes on what is considered Palestinian land. Palestine doesn’t actually exist in the format it would like too. Islamic State ARE continuing to blow things up. Russia did get away with invading a bit of the Ukraine. Trump IS (apparently) Putin’s best pal.

I could go on – and on – and on ad infinitum.

This is the world we live in. African kids starve. The Middle East is a total fuck up. A man with a stupid haircut is in charge of the most powerful free country in the free world. Britain or, to be more accurate, a majority of the British people told The European Union to ‘fuck off’.

You can love it or loathe it but it is the world we have whether we like it or not so stop bloody well whinging on about it. Frankly, all this whining is getting on my nerves.

“No sane country would ever elect Donald Trump” I constantly hear. Guess what? You did. Fine. You’re insane.

“No sane country would vote to leave The EU” I constantly hear. Well, we did so live with it.


We are the hoi pollois. We are the masses. We are the people. We are the ones who have to live with it so, for fucks sake, stop whining on about it and bloody well live with it.

We might not like it – and clearly many of us don’t – but what the hell can we do about it?

Nothing. Nada. Not a bloody thing.

We are the masses who vote the way we want and then have to live with the way others voted if it wasn’t the way we did. That is the way it works.

It might be a shit way but it is, at the moment, the only way we’ve got. Let’s face it, it might not be perfect and it might leave us with Trump and so forth but at least we actually have the right to fuck it all up. China doesn’t. Russia doesn’t. Zimbabwe doesn’t. All they’ve got is shit that they didn’t vote for nor want. We’ve got shit we voted for!

Well, when I say ‘we’ I clearly don’t mean you if you didn’t vote for Trump or Brexit or what ever but, YOUR democracy delivered Trump and our democracy delivered Brexit so, for want of a better way of putting it, STOP WHINING.

We are where we are and what will be will be.

We, the hoi pollois, can do absolutely nothing at all about any of it. It is what it is and we are where we are. Whining and complaining is, of course, your democratic right – mind you, at least we have the democratic right to whine without being locked up or executed. Small consolation perhaps but I’d rather be alive to whine I suppose.

The thing is this:

Trump IS your next President. (God or the deity of your choice help us). Whinging on and on and on will do nothing what so ever to change that fact.

Brexit IS going to happen regardless of objections.

Trump and Brexit happened because we are democratic and, sometimes, democracy fucks up from some viewpoints but, if it does then tough.

You cast your vote and your guy wins. You cast your vote and what you want happens. Then again, your guy loses or what you want doesn’t happen.

Democracy is that simple.

I am absolutely sick and tired of listening to tirades against Trump. I already know that he claims and denies the same thing in two sentences and then denies claiming or denying the same thing in the next two sentences.


I didn’t elect the mad bastard – and, I suspect, neither did you – but some did and he’s in. President Trump. There you go. It is reality so get a grip.

You will get absolutely nowhere fast by continually slagging him off. All you will do is bore me to death (which, from your point of view might not necessarily be a bad thing).

He, Trump, IS your next President. Such is bloody life so go and get one eh?

How simple do I have to make it?

Trump IS your next President. Suck it up.

Britain voted to leave The EU. Remoaners suck it up.

Democracy is bigger than Trump and Brexit. Democracy is what it is and, sometimes, it doesn’t work for you or me or you or them. Sometimes it doesn’t appear to work for anyone but, let’s face it, would you rather live in Trump’s America or China? Trump’s America or Zimbabwe? Trump’s America or Russia?

Trump’s America or Somalia?

It is indeed a fucked up world but, then again, it was a fucked up world before Trump and Brexit. Will it be even more fucked up now? Possibly, but I don’t have the power of predicting the future. Do you?

Can we please stop bombarding the internet with whining?

Stop bloody whining! Trump is President and Britain is leaving The EU. End of.

It is what it is and we are where we are. Get used to it and live with it – or, alternatively, bore me to death with your whining. if you chose the latter it will change nothing one jot.

So, there you go and there we are.

    Well now, back in 1776 if those darn colonists had just stopped whining and accepted the fact that King George was their lord and master us Yanks would be drinking tea instead of coffee today, and saying things like “bloke” and “Blighty.” Nah. I’m glad all those good folks decided to whine, not to mention dumping all that tea in Boston Harbor. Yep. Whine, shout, belt it out: Donald Trump is NOT my president. #resistanceisnotfutile

      Amen – whining eventually gives into patriots wacking the bad guys. Keep whining and then start wacking.

    I’m not sure that “whining” is the appropriate verb, “bitching”, perhaps. But in many ways you’re right! We, as a country, have made our bed, and now we have to lie in it. But I don’t agree that we should quit whining or bitching or anything. It does get tedious, as you say (although not in those words), but, for one thing, that’s the American way – although clearly not the British way. Bitching and whining is the method we use to indicate our disfavor and desire for change. Part of it just to make those who agree with us actually act! And part of it is just because we have need to express our disgust.
    Sorry old bean; it may get better in a month or two, but don’t count on it, and if Trump doesn’t get in touch with our country, it’s needs, and its morals, I hope it doesn’t (get better, that is)!

      Marsha – your use of “we” belies that fact this twit lost the popular vote. “We” didn’t elect him, “they” (electoral college) did. Talk about a f’d up system!

        Precisely. Would changing it be a sensible way forward or am I just dumb?

    Well your tirade is probably because you support trump’s puppet farage. No one should accept such a disaster as trump undoubtedly is – well no one with a brain cell that is.

    • Neil Bamforth Reply

      Excuse me! I have at least two! πŸ˜‰

      Look Cherries old girl. (How many times do I have to say it?)

      I don’t support UKIP, Conservative, Green, Labour or any political party whether moderate, extreme or anything else.

      I sometimes agree with UKIP, Conservatives, Green, Labour etc et al.

      There is, sadly, no such thing as ‘The Pragmatic Party’. If there was I would support it because I am pragmatic. I do not and have never subscribed to any political ethos nor any political party – or, if I have, it has been an incredibly short lived support.

      A far left party may say something sensible once in a blue moon. A far right party may do the same. A more centralist party may also say the odd sensible thing.

      If you think the above article is a tirade then you are clearly out to lunch, dinner and tea sweetie.

      All the best and Happy New Year x

    Well I’m with Cherries on this one Neil/Norman. Everyone knows you’re a right-winger, so don’t tell us Yanks what to do.

    • Neil Bamforth Reply

      January 10, 2017 at 4:58 pm

      Oh for Gods sake! (or the deity of your choice), grow up!

      I am a right/left winger with central beliefs that are liberal, communist, fascist, moderate and extreme – possibly in that order.

      It is increasingly clear that somebody had better ‘tell you Yanks what to do’. After all, your political system elected Trump!

      How dumb are you to allow that then eh?

      Love and hugs to all America. You are quite ludicrous and quite magnificent all at the same time you know xx
