          “Not available in your area” – BBC

          Come on, you white powder monkeys! What is so precious about your Obergruppenführer that you cannot let me watch him make a cock of himself outside the confines of the UK? Is it perhaps that you know that anyone who has emigrated is unconvertible? Unable to be subliminally manipulated? Beyond the reach of your chattering classes diktat?

          Fuck you BBC! Fuck your management. Fuck your producers. Fuck your stars. Fuck your newsreaders. Fuck every fibre of your being! If you could be wounded by the bad feelings of others, you would all be dead now. Surely your days must be numbered. You sp.eak for no one.

            The bbc is not fit for purpose.
            Every programme is interrupted by trailers for programmes I do not wish to watch. Usually there are two trailers but increasingly there are three.
            The radio is bombarded by adverts for presenters I will not listen to.
            TV editing is by people on mescalin and an overdose of speed.
            My brain cannot process information which changes several times a second.
            FFS think of your audience not yourselves.

          Osborne fucking the economy says:

          A new generation will be condemned to a life on benefits without tougher measures to stem the flow of migrant workers, Iain Duncan Smith is to warn today.
          The Work and Pensions Secretary will lift the lid on simmering Cabinet tensions over immigration, telling David Cameron that expensive back-to-work schemes will fail without strict controls on incomers.
          He will also urge British businesses to give young people coming off welfare and back into employment a fair chance, and ‘not just fall back on labour from abroad’.

      Precious, you have it the wrong way round… negotiations should mean that a strike is not necessary.

      The left are kicking off because a minister made a speech about the government’s position, (what the fuck else is he supposed to talk about? FFS!), and claiming that this showed lack of faith in negotiations. Well, I think that planning a strike even before that minister give that speech also shows a total lack of faith.

        What we are really talking about is changing the accepted practice of promoting people to higher positions for a year or two before retirement so that they get a final salary pension much higher than “earned”.

        This is normal practice in the Civil Service and in the teaching “profession”.
        The unions quote very low pensions for the “average” teacher and that’s because lots of them leave early or leave to have families and do not build a good pension pot.

        The Government is trying to introduce avarage salary pensions which would mean no more unjustified promotions in the last few years.

        militwit and bullyballs are from the bland, grey puritan school. They don’t smile, they don’t laugh, they don’t sing, they don’t dance.

        There’s no joy in labour.

        The fact that they also don’t understand economics, deficits, the need to oppose the grasping eu , the need to reform our failing nhs and education systems that they put into place, the need to fund and look after our lads in the Armed Forces or the need to scale back on mp’s as well as public servants gold plated, end of salary, scandalously insupportable pensions, is not surprising.

        Why should public sector employees get a golden handshake in the way of a fat pension when; they chose to work in that field, they get to retire earlier than most, they have very generous terms and conditions, they have a much worse sickness rate on average than private sector workers and to be frank, they often provide very poor value for money.

        Until the public sector as a whole becomes accountable for their wasteful and inefficient work then we will continue to thrown good money after bad at these outdated lefty institutions.

    Transcript:

    Ed: These strikes are wrong at a time when negotiations are still going on.

    But parents and the public have been let down by both sides because the government has acted in a reckless and provocative manner.

    After today’s disruption, I urge both sides to put aside the rhetoric, get round the negotiating table and stop it happening again.

    Q: I listened to your speech in Wrexham where you talked about the Labour Party being a movement. A lot of people in that that movement are the people who are on strike today and they’ll be looking at you and thinking ‘Well, You’re describing these strikes as wrong. Why aren’t you giving us more leadership as the leader of the Labour movement?’

    Ed: At a time when negotiations are still going on I do believe these strikes are wrong.

    And that’s why I say both sides should, after today’s disruption, get round the negotiating table, put aside the rhetoric, and sort the problem out.

    Because the public and parents have been let down by both sides. The government has acted in a reckless and provocative manner.

    Q: I spoke to Francis Maude before I came here and the tone he was striking was a very conciliatory one. Do you there’s a difference between the words they are saying in public and the attitudes they strike in private behind the negotiations. Are the negotiations in good faith would you say?

    Ed: What I say is that the strikes are wrong at a time when negotiations are still going on.

    But the government has acted in a reckless and provocative manner in the way it has gone about these issues.

    After today’s disruption, I urge both sides to get round the negotiating table, put aside the rhetoric, and stop this kind of thing happening again.

    Q: It’s a statement you’ve made publicly, and you’ve made to me and this will be broadcast, obviously, but have you spoken privately to any union leaders and expressed your view to them on a personal level, would you say?

    Ed: What I say in public and in private, to everybody involved in this, is get round the negotiating table, put aside the rhetoric, and stop this kind of action happening again.

    These strikes are wrong because negotiations are still going on.

    But parents and the public have been let down by the government as well, who’ve acted in a reckless and provocative manner.

    Q: You’re a parent. I’m a parent. People who will be watching this are parents. Has it affected you personally, this action? Has it affected your family, your friends, I mean. What is the net effect of that going to be on parents having to take a day off work today?

    Ed: I think parents up and down the country have been affected by this action, and it’s wrong at a time when negotiations are still going on.

    Parents have been let down by both sides because the government has acted in a reckless and provocative manner.

    I think that both sides should, after today’s disruption, get round the negotiating table, put aside the rhetoric, and stop this kind of thing happening again.

    QT got some real behind the scenes politics ,john denham “we will always stand behind the public ” er really , I dont think the labour party can claim any part of that ground , however it was Polly that seemed be short of flute of champagne or two , “over the past 30yrs we have seen the rich get richer ” mmmm no doubt includes property empires and villa prices , now was it 10k a table a Tony Bluffs fundraisers , to erm help ensure the rich got richer or perhaps it was the banks new instruments and casion rewards, or perhaps it was the raid on private sector pension funds , you know polly the glitterati client state ,that made so much dosh out of globalised imports and call centre relocations, and what about the rich getting richer in brussels and Tony bluffs love in , with mercury filled lightbulbs ,and motor trade where by he oversaw the sell off of rover , ldv and even busted TVR even trains were made by EU , how many rich/poor people did that create.
    Enter the Boulton (lol) was good , and Giesela stuart . Adam delivered a classic line on his 1pm show about other people having poorer pension funds to make your public sector ones better . This line about a rush to the bottom , should ask public sector worker in greece , what a rush to the bottom is like when you cant stop the debts , would be complaining about pensions then . Howard Jacobson had some interesting points , but again if you notice even the intellectual left is spinning it was someone or somthing elses doings that led to mess , add in blue labour and you can see its positioning or changing the enviroment to avoid the hits and truth.
    I dont think I can pre empt any pension deal , but clearly more contributions must come from employee in public sector across the board , and hopefully some improvement for private sector pensions in the near future .
    15000 jobs (20% of workforce) to go at Lloyds bank , hope socialist nut jobs can feel truly pleased with all they survey , now that a nasty capitalist institution is shedding jobs , to keep wonk right on bro , socialist ecnomics spoke about without doubt in the coffee shops , tax payer still paying for mess as you damged economy.

      Dear Mr Broon

      Rabbit infestations can be painful and dangerous. I suggest treatment involving a darkened room, a torch, a packet of lettuce leaves and a 12 bore shotgun. Aim between their eyes and squeeze the trigger gently.

      Just a word of warning though. Please ensure before you start the treatment that it isn’t Damien McBride or Derek Draper hiding up there.

    Leaving aside the bizarre verbatim repitition, consider his speech, mannerism and general body language. The man is trying hard to sound like a tough guy who’s laying down the law but he chunts along like a nervous 15 year old giving a speech at school assembly.

    He looks like a deer caught in headlights and while he clearly has a good idea of what people expect him to say and feel, he equally clearly lacks the capacity to feel what other people feel.

    I’m not sure if I’m watching a video of an ideologically-blinded policy wonk who’s having to say things he doesn’t believe in order to assuage a public he doesn’t understand or if I’m watching a plain old autistic who simply lacks the capacity to understand other people. Ed Miliband makes Gordon Brown look like a master of public communication and emotional literacy.

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
