Quote of the Day

Paul McMullan, a former News of the World hack says

“Privacy is the place where we do bad things, we hide our misdemeanours, we hide the really embarrassing things we really wouldn’t want to tell our wives and children… In the last 15 or 20 years of doing this, I haven’t met one single person who’s banged on about his privacy who hasn’t done something wrong.”

    By this definition, either he’s of the opinion that sex is bad or that it should be done in public!

    There isn’t anyone who hasn’t done something wrong….except of course the dull hack who wrote that obvious drivel thinking he has some special insight into human nature.

    Do a poo in public says:

    Is having a poo in public a good thing? Is having sex in public a good thing? Is venting your anger in public a good thing? Is expressing grief in public a good thing? and on and on.

    My freedom of speech has to be done in private now, thanks to the lousy shitty Labour morons, who destroyed our sense of humour, our national identity, and our sense of self worth. The people of this country have had their respective teeth drawn good and proper by Mcshite, Hapless Harriet and co. We are spied on, told how to behave, and what to think, and if you try to fight back you are a racist bigot or a minority.

    What a fucking idiot. Why does this ‘journalist’ think he, or anyone else, is entitled to know anything about me – or anyone else for that matter?

    He seems to believe that there are people in this world who have not ‘done anything wrong’ Well ,where to start with that? Who are these fucking saints? Anyway, what’s his definition of ‘wrong’ – illegality, immorality, or just mistaken?

    ‘Former’ ‘News of the World’ ‘hack’? Not the slightest surprise there – on all counts.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
