Bojo ‘Labour’s Numbers Don’t Add Up’ 

Hawking ‘I’m Voting Labour’


Yesterday
 in a thoroughly unsurprising turn of events Conservative thinking once again found itself at loggerheads with logic when Stephen Hawking, widely renowned to be the world’s most intelligent man, publically announced his support for Jeremy Corbyn and The Labour Party.

 

It is not the first time the Tories have found themselves at the shitty end of the clever stick. Indeed, throughout modern history all sentient people everywhere have disagreed with every single Conservative policy ever announced. It seems this revealing trend is set to continue with many other prominent intellectuals now publicly backing Labour’s election bid including: Dr Adotey Bing-Pappoe, lecturer in economics, Alan Freeman (personal capacity), Alfredo Saad Filho, Professor of Political Economy, SOAS University of London, Andrew Cumbers, Professor of Regional Political Economy, University of Glasgow, Andrew Simms, author of The New Economics, co-director New Weather Institute, Andy Ross FAcSS, Visiting Professor, Birkbeck University of London , Andy Kilmister, Department of Accounting, Finance and Economics, Oxford Brookes University, Ann Pettifor, Director of PRIME Economics (Policy Research in Macroeconomics), Dr Antonio Andreoni (PhD Cambridge), Senior Lecturer in Economics, SOAS University of London, Anwar Shaikh, Professor, New School for Social Research, USA, Arturo Hermann, Senior research fellow, Italian National Institute of Statistics, Rome, Italy, Professor Ben Fine, Department of Economics, SOAS University of London, Robert Rowthorn, Emeritus Professor of Economics, University of Cambridge., Bruce Cronin, Professor of Economic Sociology, Director of Research, Director of the Centre for Business Network Analysis, University of Greenwich, Dr Bruno Bonizzi, Lecturer in Political Economy, University of Winchester, Carlos Oya, Reader in Development Studies, SOAS University of London, Carolina Alves, PhD Economics, Carolyn Jones, Director, Institute of Employment Rights, Cem Oyvat, Lecturer, University of Greenwich, Christopher Cramer, Professor of the Political Economy of Development, SOAS University of London, Ciaran Driver FAcSS, Professor of Economics, SOAS University of London, Professor Colin Haslam, Professor of Accounting and Finance, Queen Mary University of London, Costas Lapavitsas, Professor of Economics, SOAS University of London, Cyrus Bina, Distinguished Research Professor of Economics, University of Minnesota, USA, Dr Dan O’Neill, Lecturer in Ecological Economics, University of Leeds, Daniela Gabor, Professor of Economics and Macro-Finance, University of the West of England, Daniele Archibugi, Professor, Birkbeck College, Professor Danny Dorling, University of Oxford, Writer and Academic, Dean Baker, Co-Director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, Washington, DC, Dr Deborah Johnston Pro-Director (Learning and Teaching) SOAS (University of London), Diego Sánchez-Ancochea, Associate Professor in Political Economy, Director, Latin American Centre, University of Oxford, Dr Dimitris P.

Top Conservative and untrained American aristocrat Boris Johnson, who recently argued Labour’s economic strategy did not ‘add up’, waffled like an excited baboon trying to steal a banana, ‘Well, yes. See here now. I’ve never heard of any these chaps on your list for a start, or most of the places now I come to think of it, but I know … for a fact, that… er let me see… that lots of eggheads out there currently support the Conservatives and their election direction. Oh yes. Let me see now. In the blue corner, so to speak, we have, firstly and probably most arguably, Katie Hopkins, a person whom I feel we can all agree is… er… known yes, ah ha, for her mental dexterity, if not many other… things. Next, number two if you like, I’d would mention Gary Barlow or as I like to call him ‘the thinking man’s mistro’. Yes, I rather like that one myself. But, of course, lastly, and by no means… er… least, and he knows that I mean that sincerely, it’s my old friend from the Pimlico lido himself; the musical genius Simon Cowell. Now let me tell you all something here and now; everyone single one of these brainiacs is a successful millionaire just like me so, in turn… What was I saying? Ah yes. They must all… er… yes… be clever. Which, I feel. by itself, is enough, so to speak to, let me see now, to… er… make even the most ardent Marxist out there turn blue this June and vote for us; the Tories.’

 

Steven Hawking, PHD CH, CBE, FRS, FRSA theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge, commented from his wheelchair, ‘There is nothing complicated about the theorising that led me to my decision. This is something so simple everyone can understand. Voting Conservative is purely illogical. That is why I advise you to do as I do on the 8th June and vote Labour.’
