Finally An A-Polly-Gee

In a rare move for the belligerent and hyperactive columnist, Polly Toynbee this morning apologised for the inflammatory language that Guido highlighted the other day, when she compared a slight tweak in government benefits policy to the slaughter of six million Jews. On her “final solution” comment she said:

“Yes, it was over the top, a slip of the pen, made worse by the fact that it was put in the headline. I regret it.”

Savour the moment, Guido doesn’t imagine we will get another half-apology any time soon…

      I still didn’t receive any reply to my letter of complaint to the Guardian. Even the BBC responds to complaints. OK, the BBC looks at the complaint and says, “we looked at your complaint, and decided that we are right”, but at least it is something.

        Disaffected says:

        Toynbee and the BBC use inflamatory language to attract attention because most intelligent people already know nothing of substance comes from these expensive but useless sources. Their complete biased views are of little importance or interest. It would be in the interest of sensible debate that both services were dispensed with.

        Fat bitch could also afford to lose a lot of weight as well. She could give the proceeeds (savings from food) to Children in need.

          According to the perverse views and opinions of the left, if she lost weight, it would be helping mitigate climate change too.

      Why not ask, “Are labour and the media behaving like hypocritical bigots and deliberately using the offensive, inflammatory language of hate, in place of rational debate and reason?”

      It was the left wing that raised and used these offensive words, then they get upset when the tories respond in rejection.

        Unacceptable Behaviour From Polly, only Bloggers can get away with that type of thing you know says:

        Polly just well apologise, the comparison between Hitler’s Final Solution against Jewish people and the Conservatives slinging thousands of hundreds of hardworking people out of their homes and into slum housing is entirely inapporopriate.

        I am surprised to hear thought that Guido was the person to raise this issue considering the racist comments he allows on his own site, including anti-semitic ones.

        And I am even more surprised that Jewish people, having suffered the Final Solution and Holocaust at the hands of the Nazis, are in turn carrying out a fascist genocide programme against Palestinians in order to steal their land and property.

        They seemed to have not learned from their own experience.

        Polly’s comment was entirely inappropriate and I should bloody well hope she has apologised.

        There is no way the Final Solution can be compared to the Land Clearance of London that the Conservative government is carrying out. 6 million Jewish people being murdered by the Nazis cannot be in any way compared to one million families being thrown out of their homes and into slum housing by the Tories.

Where I grew up in Suusex neither I or any of my contempories could afford to buy homes in the village we grew up in. A situation that was replicated in thousands of villages and towns around the country. Did the political class care? Did they Fuck. Its only with the massive levels of immigration we have suffered in recent years that they have taken an interest in such matters. The political class in this country Stinks!!

            Dead right. Come to think of it, why doesn’t the helpful Beeb tell us how many immigrants are getting all that housing benefit? Imagine being a peasant in Pakistan or wherever one week, and a very well paid inhabitant of Kensington the next. Better than winning the lottery.
            Thinking more, how much does all this immigration actually cost us? No one ever seems to know.
            We’re told repeatedly that we can’t expest much in retirement, have to cut back everything constantly, must reduce our carbon, and all that crap, and then must never ask if the vast immigration secretly sanctioned by our political class has any bearing on these matters.
            You are right: what a stinking country.

      So Polly has given a lukewarm apology for that particular form of words. However, it remains doubtful whether she understands, or wants to understand, the reasons for the current administration’s policy, or it’s manifest attempt at fairness not just to benefit recipients but also to those forced to foot the bill. When Polly displays some understanding of the ludicrous state of the benefits system, we might be making some progress.

        Low resolution fox says:

        I’m surprised no one has responded by pointing out the “ethnic cleansing” of employed persons from the city, to be replaced by unemployed benefit claimants.

        My logic comes from if you have employed persons taxed 60-65% of their income unable to live near their jobs – with their taxes redistributed to semi/unemployed persons who could live anywhere. That could be considered ethnic cleansing of those in the religion of working for a damn living.

            So we should deal with the issue of extortionate rail fares then, which the Tory government are planning on increasing by another 10 per cent.
            Slinging people out of their homes will not reduce those overpriced fares so your point has no meaning at all.


          • I Remember You Hoo says:

            Er yes it will actually, it will reduce the rentable value of homes near to the city centre, which will in turn encourage people to look at living closer to work.

            It’s more to do with practicalities. The ideal for me would be out of EU altogether, perhaps with a sort of embassy-type mission to keep a watching brief. But the overwhelming priority is to sort out our deficit – the EU battle can wait.

            Given the level of euroscepticism on the Conservative benches, and UKIP increasing it’s share of the vote at every Euro election, a showdown of some sort is almost inevitable at some point, but it might be wise to fight that battle from a more secure economic base.

    Two dwarfs go into a bar, where they pick up two prostitutes and take them to their separate hotel rooms.

    The first dwarf, however, is unable to get an erection. His depression is made worse by the fact that, from the next room, he hears his little friend shouting out cries of “Here I come again …ONE, TWO, THREE…UUH!” all night long.

    In the morning, the second dwarf asks the first, “How did it go?” The first mutters, “It was so embarrassing. I simply couldn’t get a hard on.”

    The second dwarf shook his head. “You think that’s embarrassing?”

Come very close to advocating it however just when you think he’s supporting something interesting he’d always pull back and amid a lot of squealling , puff and bluster all you found was that he supported the Staus Quo.

            I went on a visit to Auschwitz, and its true that all the gas chambers are 1960 reproductions made by the USSR, in addition the guides were a bit put out by too many references to Jews, as they point out Auschwitz was a mainly Polish prison for political prisoners. There were also many facts that were not explained, the firts being the supposed siting of the first gas chamber 50 feet from the SS officer’s mess. The “most modern sewage systems in Europe” in a camp where the prisoners had to clean out the latrines, which would have been very difficult given the construction ofthe latrines. I asked the questions and got shirty answers. . The guide told us that they think 1.2 m Jews were murdered in the camp in a year, which would have been impossible given the size of the crems and the fact that no bones were found on the site. There were many school children milling around eating ice creams, and a pizza restaurant near the entrance. In all a very surreal and slightly contrived experience. I am not denying anything, my father was a doctor in Belsen a few weeks after the war and recounted the appalling mess he found, but Auschwitz is very odd and becoming a tourism attraction

    “Out of an abundance of caution the planes were moved to a remote location where they are being met by law enforcement officials and swept,” the TSA said in a statement.

    A United Parcel Service delivery truck was also being investigated in New York City’s borough of Queens.

    “It’s a UPS truck. We’re investigating what we believe is a possible explosive device on board that truck,” said New York police spokesman Paul Browne.

            ‘The Planes,Trains and Automobiles parody on Guido’s earlier thread about Gordon not turning up set the Lefties running about like a woman who’s got out of the bath and accidentally sat on a tazer.

            Set off a hundred comment rant. I don’t think they knew it was from a movie. That’s the trouble with lefties..all ‘Battleship Potemkin’ and ‘The Way we were.’

            if the BBc can get away with repeats..

            Gordon returns to the commons:Dave begins the introduction with

            You know everything is not about borrowing. You have to discriminate. You choose things that are worthy or mildly beneficial or necessary. You’re a miracle! Your policies have NONE of that. They’re not even right … ACCIDENTALLY!

            “Honey, I’d like you to meet Gordon ‘Del’ Brown, he’s got some fu*king mental plans for you. Oh and here’s a gun so you can blow your brains out. You’ll thank me for it.”
            I could tolerate any EU summit. For days I could sit there and listen to them go on and on with a big smile on my face. They’d say, “How can you stand it?” I’d say, “‘Cause I’ve been with Gordon Brown. I heard him lecture us on Golden Rules..and..and..and..PRUDENCE!. I can take ANYTHING.” You know what they’d say? They’d say, “I know what you mean. The greasy shower curtain guy who somehow became Prime Minister? Woah.”

            And Gordon replies..
            {play clip now for the just the right effect}

            “You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I’m an easy target. Yeah, you’re right, I took too much. I also redistributed too much.
            Oh..I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you Dave… but I don’t like to hurt people’s feelings…Well..Except for that old woman..was’er name..Duffy. But she was a bigot..Anyway..
            Well, you think what you want about me; I’m not changing. I like… I like me. My wife likes me. My constituency voters like me. ‘Cause I’m the real article. What you see is what you get. ”

            Dave “Yeah? ..I see a great big fuck-up with ‘Disaster Area-Stay Away” tattooed on his lumpy forehead..”

    “With Gordon Brown gone, Labour can forge a historic alliance of principle with the Liberal Democrats” – 10 May 2010

    “….although people expect to pay higher taxes and see their incomes suffer under the Tories, they still prioritise paying off national debt and sorting the economy. That’s what they say now. But when faced with spending cuts and tax rises, they will change their minds” – 28 August 2009

    “Even if unemployment reaches 3 million, that still leaves 90% in secure jobs. Most people will suffer not at all in this recession: on the contrary they will do well as prices fall and the real value of their earnings rises” – 25 November 2008.

    “Brown’s first task was to neutralise the negatives and show the world that he was not secretive, cabalistic, psychologically flawed or Stalinist – a caricature devised by the Tories, though they were ably assisted by Blairite acid over the years. It has been a comic delight for Brown’s supporters to watch the crestfallen Tories lose all their best lines of attack as Brown zapped those charges one by one.” – 21 September 2007 (OK, not really a prediction, but hilarious)

    Suicide Bombers to go on strike

    Muslim suicide bombers in Britain are set to begin a three-day strike on Monday in a dispute over the number of virgins they are entitled to in the afterlife. Emergency talks with Al Qaeda have so far failed to produce an agreement. The unrest began last Tuesday when Al Qaeda announced that the number of virgins a suicide bomber would receive after his death will be cut this February, from 72 to only 60. The rationale for the cut was the increase in recent years of the number of suicide bombings and a subsequent shortage of virgins in the afterlife.

    The suicide bomber’s union, the British Organization of Occupational Martyrs (BOOM) responded with a statement that this was unacceptable to its members and immediately balloted for strike action. General Secretary Abdullah Amir told the press, “Our members are literally working themselves to death in the cause of Jihad. We don’t ask for much in return, and to be treated like this is like a kick in the teeth.”

    Thanks to Western depravity there is now a chronic shortage of virgins in the afterlife. It’s a straight choice between reducing expenditure and laying people off. I don’t like cutting wages but I’d hate to have to tell 3,000 of my staff that they won’t be able to blow themselves up.”

    Spokespersons for the Union in the north east of England, Ireland, Wales, and the entire Australian continent stated that the strike would not affect their operations, as “there are no virgins in their areas anyway.”

    Apparently the drop in the number of suicide bombings has been put down to the emergence of Scottish singing star Susan Boyle – now that Muslims know what an actual virgin looks like they are not so keen on going to paradise.

      Yes Sofi we have been doing well and are almost there, bigot gate was but a temporary setback. We shall return, success will be ours!

    Herman three wheels on my wagon Trotter says:

    OK, people! This is the plan. We’ll leak that we’re after a 6% budget increase, let the mongs kick up a stink, and settle for 2.9%, thereby giving the national deputies a ticket home, spinning a victory for common sense.
    Luvverly jubberly!

    O/T i know
    but who gives a fuck about the wizened old trout toynbee

    Dave will increase airport tax by a massive 58% from feb 1st
    thus just about killing off our holiday industry maybe a few smaller airlines as well
    no other country has this tax making it much more likely tourists will go to mainland europe and commute to the uk to avoid the massive increase
    also it was claimed that regular flyers will fly to France and pick up connecting flights there to avoid the cost
    i heared the dutch had this type of tax a few years ago but realised that the damage to the economy far out weighed the revenue raised so they scrapped it !
    once again clueless Dave drops a bollock

    Dave there is a real world outside of your westminster bubble !

    Suck it and see says:

    “Nick Clegg says he had to ‘swallow pretty hard’ when he realised what needed to be done to bring down the budget deficit left behind by Labour. ”

    Yeah Nick, but then swallowing pretty hard is something Liberals are pretty good at aren’t they?

    Years ago i was in a trade union
    if we wanted a payrise we always asked for twice what we wanted and settled for half !
    Well done Dave you really showed them europieans that you “take no shit” you fucking muppet! they must be laughing their little cocks off at the uk

    we got rid of one clueless idiot to be replaced by a bigger one
    whats the betting that next year all the eurocrats award themselves a nice 3% payrise ?


  97. 437

    I think we are now in the middle of a double dip resession
    every one i know has no work or has closed down or gone bust
    i myself am hanging on by earning less than £300 a week and i run my own business
    and as for tax returns at the end of Jan- forget it !
