*Virtue signal, virtue signal*…..

I see you’re quite prepared to talk about it though, you poor little MBE recipient, you, because you know whatever publicity you decide to give it, whether graciously accepting it like a grown up, or whining about how terrible being offered one is, will increase your standing and exposure.

Thus your virtue signalling is hollow and faux.

I'm a gamer. I'm a coaster. I am happy in general. We're all born by chance and we're all gonna die. That makes me no better or worse than you. Get over that fact and we'll probably get along. I comment on the Google news feed a lot. Oh, and I swear quite a lot.
