    Aunty Matter says:

    The ‘meeja’ keep repeating that the chinky bint swam faster than the US bloke who won his race. Well she clearly didn’t, her time was 25 seconds off of his.

    But what concerns me is the BBC in particular keep repeating this lie and now people are believing it, when you point out the times they say “that can’t be right the BBC said she swam faster”

    What is worrying is the media spout a lie and people pick it up as facts be it on Twitter, blogs or elsewhere.

    Very worrying for more serious stories that people believe the BBC without question.

          Only the indigenous English. Large scale non-white immigration to our neighbouring countries doesn’t exist.

          They are long extinct. The germanic invaders known as the “English” haven’t been here long enough to be called indigenous – ask any Welshman.

      Erm...it's not quite like that says:

      “Ye Shiwen took seconds off her personal best to break the world record and win a gold medal in the 400m medley on Saturday, swimming faster in the last 50m than the winner of the men’s event.”

      Erm, ain’t we all supposed to be equal now
      With anti-racism the great sacred cow?
      It’s the melting-pot we’ve got to celebrate
      Not superiority in any state
      So how come every P C hypocrite
      Ain’t seeing these games and having a fit?

    Ain’t it just like the night to play tricks when you’re tryin’ to be so quiet?
    We sit here stranded, though we’re all doin’ our best to deny it
    And Louise holds a handful of rain, temptin’ you to defy it
    Lights flicker from the opposite loft
    In this room the heat pipes just cough
    The country music station plays soft
    But there’s nothing, really nothing to turn off
    Just Louise and her lover so entwined
    And these visions of Johann, ah, that conquer my mind

    So what? It happens EVERY day in the Press……… Bob Dylan spent most of his younger day off his face, so who’s to say he didn’t actually say these things?…….. He can’t remember!

    Funny. Plagiarism seems to be Guido’s current bugbear.

    Yesterday Guido had a thread called “Cheques and Balances”, a play on Audit Transparency speak “Checks and Balances”

    Financial Times on December 6th 2010 story entitled – “Cheques and Balances”

    The Economist May 2010 story entitled – “Cheques and Balances”

    Episode of All Creatures Great and Small, BBC1 1988, entitled – “Cheques and Balances”

        “Plagiarism is Plagiarism”.

        Now come on, Moussa Koussa, stop plagiarising you little sneak and while you’re at it, find yourself an original name instead of using that bloody raghead’s.

          I use Moussa Koussa to draw attention to yet another Dave Failing

          Remember this:-

          “Moussa Koussa will not be offered immunity”, says Billy Boy Vague and David Cockermoron

          Guess who has been let out of the country without prosecution, and is living it up in a 7 star Qatar hotel ??????

          Does this constitute another U-Turn

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.”
