Mehdi’s Massive Promotion

Guido got wind last week that Mehdi Hasan had been sacked as Political Editor of the New StatesmanWhen we put it to him he exploded…

Well it now seems Guido was on the money and the Staggers were just being nice by not announcing his departure last week along with other internal movements. He’s bagged a massive promotion in both status and influence by joining the Huffington Post.  Guido just spoke to one of Mehdi’s fellow lefty hacks:

Lefty: Has he been fired?
GF: Well he’s going to the HuffPo, so you could put it like that.
Lefty: Oh god that’s worse than being fired. That’s worse than being dead.

Are they going to pay him?

        This man is utter filth and has no place in our society. He should fuck off and live in Iran.

            I once had a roasted Goat in Cyprus. I also lived in a country that had pride in its political class doing the right thing. We invaded countries and stole their assets. It was a blatant show of influence and Power. Then came along the USA They had more clever way of building an empire. A bit of terror here and there a little bit of drug dealing here and there, We now live in a very confusing world where No one knows who is who and who did what. What I do know is the economic system that has supported the corrupt world has collapsed.

            How old are you?

          • Rage Against the Politcal Elite says:

            I think it may be that the USA came along after the Second World War and started building its global empire

            I think they have just read this blog and sacked the tvvat this afternoon.

          • Archie says:

            Let’s just hope that we see and hear less of this odious twat and his obnoxious views. Perhaps he will get a job in America as he’s married to a Yank? They love left-wing Muslims over there……………………………NOT!

          • Pundit Too says:

            “When he put it to him he exploded” – Does he talk to himself that often?

        socialism is a mental illness says:

        What IS on youtube is a ‘sermon’ by this imbecile, no film, but him screaming and crying and caterwauling about some ‘moment’. It is truly disturbing and his sanity must be in question, but the BBC think he is wonderful, which tells you more about the BBC than anything else.

        Blowers; Welcome to TMS. That was a lovely ball by Swann.

        Hasan: No it wasn’t. It was patronising, overbearing, cutting to the right and it did not go nuclear. You are a tit for thinking it was a good ball when in fact it wasn’t. Who are you, what are you

        Did anybody see the foul on Emre by Zhikora in the Fenerbahce vs Trabzon match two weekends ago . Full volley to the groin in mid flight. Emre putatively hospitalised . Ref considered it a 50 50 ball and merely gave Zhikora a yellow!!

        Metaphorically the same as what the MEEJA are doing to Hassan right now .

          The BBC know all about Science. They read about it in one of the set books for their English Literature degrees.

          • If it isn’t about poisonous, evil CO2 it’s not science to the BBC

          • Ivor Tapeworm says:

            The BBC website just rewrites the summaries from Nature and New Scientist. Badly.

            The only time the BBC get excited about ccience or technology is when they decide to hype the latest Apple press release.

          • Mars Attacks says:

            Well if they print summaries from New Scientist, they can neither fucking read nor assimilate the difference between fact and what some shirt lifter with a degree in “Meeja” studies on the BBC science dept. thinks it means!

        Yup. It’ll now be (even more) impossible to hear any Radio 4 programme without either Toynbee or Hasan as the regular pundit/expert/rent-a-gob (delete where inapplicable) spouting forth on everything from immigration to the growing of rhubarb.

        • 141

          Delete as appropriate:

          More spending/more subsidy/more immigration is the only possible answer. Higher taxes for rich people/bankers/public sector and more state intervention/regulation/taxation/compensation/or pensions, are necessary.

    I can confirm that although we are a lowly blot on the media / blog landscape, we have no need to recruit SCUM like Mendhi which will damage our already meagre fragile readership.

    Menghi has offered to do a few freebies, but that does not constitute a job. We will protect our standards at all costs.

    The kaffar, the disbelievers, the atheists who remain deaf and stubborn to the teachings of Islam, the rational message of the Quran; they are described in the Quran as, quote, ‘a people of no intelligence’, Allah describes them as; not of no morality, not as people of no belief – people of ‘no intelligence’ – because they’re incapable of the intellectual effort it requires to shake off those blind prejudices, to shake off those easy assumptions about this world, about the existence of God.

    In this respect, the Quran describes the atheists as ‘cattle’, as cattle of those who grow the crops and do not stop and wonder about this world.

    Despeerate Dan says:

    Tony Blair’s speaking engagements have dried up and the world’s dictators and despots are no longer beating a path to his door. In order to pump some life into his trans-global money making machine and polish up his profile he has engaged the services of Megalomanics and Crooks R Us. He is available for a range positions – DG of BBC, Leader of the Labour Party (or any other party), Secretary General of NATO, Secretary General of the UN, Governor of the Bank of England or Archbishop of Canterbury.

    Just read his first article, seems to being under some sort of pen name, I guess so that people don’t realise that what they are reading has been written by a complete and utter, nasty moron:

    I have to say, I’m with the commentator who would like the labia to be more visible.

      I forgot to say, that was my first venture over to that site, I think the article above and the thousands of others on that site show quite admirably why none of the writers are paid for the output!

    Its silly I know. But I can’t get that Levesson / Brookes youtube of her signing LOL and Kelvin’s “The Sun”out of my head.

    Guido uses an odd definition of “exploded” if the following counts as explosion: “Simple question: are you a tit?”

    I would have thought this is nearer to the usual definition:

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
