      Judges eh. They don’t need telling about freedom of speech you know. They really don’t.


  3. 3
    Wonder what's behind it says:

    The BBC seem fairly confident they will be able to broadcast. They say “A court order has been made preventing the BBC from broadcasting the programme as planned on 16 July. The BBC will broadcast the programme at a later date. You will be able to comment on Nicola’s post when the programme airs”.

    Will be interesting to learn the reason for the injunction. I’m sure it will all come out in due course.

      Pickled Wizard says:

      ‘Conducted by the London School of Economics and The Guardian, this social research project interviewed 270 people who were involved in the disorder.’

      I think we can all see the reason for the injunction – lack of objectivity or truth

      It might give people ideas, and all the forces of law and order are going to be tied up with the Olympics for the next few weeks?

          Grauniad Apologista says:

          So vexed were the rioters by social issues they had to mug foreign students.
          And it’s only natural they wanted to burn a woman alive in a furniture store.

        How about a programe with an in depth investigation into a second rate media outfit , whose tax arrangements are at odds with their editorial content. No ? Didn’t think so !

      Just a normal injunction.

        There’s a second class of criminal involved in this farce, lefty academic dipsticks scuttling around with their clipboards and camcorders trying to make political capital out of what is a simple case greed and opportunism. Our universities are full of poisonous little fuckers who suck on the public teat and stir up apathy by the shitload.


    • 18
      UKIP.i.am says:

      Its the massive extra public spending at the time that caused the riots.

    Maybe the key word is ‘drama’. If they present a documentary, they at least have to transmit pretty much what the participants said. If the turn it into a drama, they can edit out the bits that don’t fit the agenda.

      It’s best thought of as another step towards denying there’s any truth, or any worthwhile distinction to be drawn between fact and fiction: It’s all just opinions, innit?
      Thus the actual Olympic torch becomes a ‘character’ in the fictional EastEnders when it makes a guest appearance on the Albert Square stage set.

        Labour are the ultimate shambles.


      • 37
        Granted says:

        the Torys – led by Sham Cam the WindFarm Scam MAn is a shambles, but be honest, – the BBC is indeed not only c_untish, but in every respect utterly twatish and like a dried up old bean to boot, – or too boot. It is a bottom feeder, it feeds on scraps, on carrion, it employs snivelling nerds, like for instance all the left wing little shits.

        So come on, – make a clean mammary of it! Own up! It’s bo locks!


  17. 33
    I don't need no doctor says:

    As anyone asked John Reid about the Olympic security provider G4S. Why did labour choose G4S, and why did labour’s John Reid get a directorship with G4S?
    Has Yvette Cooper apologised on behalf of labour?


  18. 34
    Aunty Matter says:

    I love the way the lefty media (BBC/C4) are making sure that no one is pointing the finger at Labour for the mess over the G4S issue.

    What we know is Labour set up the contract but for only 2500 guards, then the current lot comes in and does a review and it goes up to 14,000. So where did the need for that lot come from and how did Labour get it so badly wrong?

    Just how many contracts did Labour hand out and why is Jon lefty Snow blaming the Tories when it’s Labour who handed out these contracts.


    • 35
      I don't need no doctor says:

      Because Jon Snow is an arrogant leftie twat.


    • 51
      The Paragnostic says:

      My main worry about this and the Libor thing is that Commons Select Committees, which ought to be held in high esteem for their forensic examination of the deeds and misdeeds of the executive, now appear to be mainly concerned with “Grandstanding for Gobshites”.

      Every time a befuddled MP tries to slip in a soundbite instead of a question, the Select Committee system is devalued, no example being more shining than Vaz (a lawyer) upbraiding Buckles for wanting to claim the management fees agreed in the contract. I’m willing to bet that Vaz always claimed excess fees as a lawyer, win or lose, so the oily fucker really had no right to ask such a question.

      An don’t get me started on the useless and toxic John Mann…

    MAD FRANKIE HADDOCK son of COD says:

    Who is incharge of this Olympic fiasco ?
    Oh it’s non other than our old friend Jeremy Hunt who was probably so busy trying to sell B sky B to the Murkdocs that he forgot to check on security levels at the Olympics
    He’s already saying “This is no time for a witch hunt” I wonder to which witch he doth refer ?


    • 50
      Aunty Matter says:

      Hunt might be a useless wet twat, but I don’t think this mess is his fault. Tessa Jowell and 5 bellies Smiff have their sticky little fingers all over this.

      The right way to have done this would have been to get the military and Police to decide upon numbers of guards needed, then decide how many of them need to be armed forces or plod, then allow for a reserve and then the remaining jobs farmed out.

      More than one contractor should have been awarded the security contract, one for the main park, but the other venues around the country could have been contracted to other security firms.

      Sorry but this mess falls back totally on Labour once again who decided to give jobs to their mate John Reid.


      • 54
        The Paragnostic says:

        The whole question of whether a private firm could provide so many personnel for such a short contract (not forgetting that thanks to New Labour, they have to supply SIA accredited staff) should have rung alarm bells immediately.

        The question of why we need so many security personnel should, of course, be referred to Mr Blair and his craven arse licking of the Septics.

        Whichever way you look at it, it’s another Labour cock up that the rest of us have to pay for.

      although they spoke at length about Toxic Tone’s The Return…….and how that could really damage Ed MillieTwit,the Ultimate Minor at the next GE; which was very helpful & Ed did not see the clip as it was way past his bedtime…he needs his sleep as we know…..
      The real inside info was Pants MacQ’s helpful comparison, in the Green Room, between Cherie’s large butt & photo on the front page of the Daily Star of a 45″plus DIY enlarged butt of some woman, Pants MacQ thought the former’s was much bigger than the latters….leave you to Judge……..but really thoughtful off message comments……

      Perhaps Rupert will arrange a hidden camera plus microphone for the Green Room to capture these magic moments……then post on You Tube…..it could prove tobe a great hit on the Net……

    Reporter: “So why did you riot?”

    Rioter “Because government policies took away my job and made my family hungry. My mum can no longer get her operation while my aunt is fit for work while she is receiving 24 hour care, forcing her family into poverty and forcing us all into crime to make ends meet. The riots started and the energy erupted due to the built up tension in society caused by our government policies.”

    Reporter “so its the governments fault”

    Rioter “yes as I have explained”

    Government spokesman “it wasn’t us it was the criminal youth, or labour or europe or the disabled or the unemployed fault”

    Rioter “we re only criminals now because you turned us into it.”

    Government spokesman “no can’t be true, not us after all we are millionaires we couldn’t possibly inject such harm into society, after all we know how to achieve. Besides you have personal repsonsibility and our policies can only free you to make more money”

    Rioter – shakes his head in despair.

    Stewart says I was predicting the riots way before they happened – tri talk and Icke forums I think – it isn’t rocket science. Greece being the best example, down to humble old England. I was flabergasted when that top copper said that the rite weren’t predictable, not the specific spark point I give you, but a simple look at Europe should have given a clue, combined with the changing dynamics in England over the past decade for all sorts of reasons.

    It’s enough to drive you into politics.

    Some of you seem to think this security guard story should somehow be blamed on Labour.

    After careful consideration by our news and current affairs department we have concluded that this cannot be.

    Theresa May is the current Home Secretary, so it’s a Tory story.
    A private company is to blame for failure , not a public sector org.
    Labour has not been in power since 1979.

    So we will continue with our coverage of “Tory cock ups threaten to ruin the BBC’s big sports day coverage. The Tories really are hopeless aren’t they?”

    As a retired engineer I have negotiated and signed many engineering maintenance and contracts.

    It would appear to me that in government we have a complete set of incompetent nutters signing away taxpayers money willy nilly.
    I also bear in mind there are many many instances of this right across the government and public sector,a prime example being PFI and that rip off scandal.

      cos that’s what they are spending per employee…


      • 182
        UKIP.i.am says:

        The maths I have is they are charging £57million for approximately 4000 recruits they already have plus another 3K expected. That is over the 3 weeks for the Olympics plus the paralympics which follows it (12 days) though they wont need anything like as many staff for that.

        So I’d call it £57m/7000 = £8000 per employee over 3 weeks and up to another week. That makes it about £2000 per recruit for wages, training, transport, accommodation, uniforms etc.
