Guardian’s Steve Bell In Full Conspiracy Mode


  1. 1
    Kebab Time says:

    The Guardian is a comic right? (an unfunny one , but a comic)

  2. 2
    Old Holborn says:

    I notice the banks got bailed out.

  3. 3
    The Grouniad/BBC Axis of Evil - aka the Biased Bullshit Cuntz says:

    We’re proud to employ Polly and other sparkling Prograssives

  4. 4

    He knows when he is likud.

  5. 5
    The Organ Grinder's Monkey says:

    I seem to remember when Tony Balir was someone’s puppet. The puppet/puppetmaster image has been used for centuries as a way of diminishing people.

  6. 6
    B Boyd says:

    The BBC and Guardian would have loved the title ‘National Socialist Party’. then give it an anti-Semitic twist for added attraction…

  7. 7
    CT says:

    He is the world’s least original/amusing cartoonist.

  8. 8
    Michael Fucking Parkinson says:

    I’ve met 100s of interesting people.

  9. 9
    Confused of Barking says:

    the BBC is either anti Israel or anti Palestinian. both sides can’t be right?

    and lets face it, Guido is not really ever right on much, although he is a very good troll.

  10. 10
    Over to Pesto says:

    Oh I don’t know. That Brant F ucker in the Telegraph runs him close.

  11. 11
    Judge says:

    So you are all in favour of spoofing the prophet

    But when it comes to taing off this r a s i s t colonialist

    You get all upset

    Shuv your hypocricy up your ass

  12. 12
    Texas Jim says:

    Guido you are too close to the London chattering classes.

    No one in the real world reads the Guardian. End of.

  13. 13
    The Prophet says:

    I prophesied this

  14. 14
    kosher psyop "order order" says:

    But, but, I thought Guido kept telling everyone he’s Oirish, drinks Guinness, recites Joyce and backs the gee gees.

    If you love polishing shmekels so much, kosher boy, why don’t you fuck off to Tel Aviv, and take the other two n’onces, smoggie and ac1, with you.

  15. 15
    b j throbb says:

    Mention of bell-ends… I don’t recall a Guido obit for Sir Stuart Bell-end. Perhaps best left to rot in peace?

  16. 16

    Where has my Paranormal Weekly gone?

    Obama is trying pull the Egyptian PM strings. Not working.

  18. 18
    Y fronts says:

    We want press freedom

    Except for those who attack me

  19. 19
    Arse bandit of old England. says:

    Isn’t there supposed to be an element of dry humour in a cartoon? Bell’s efforts are always well drawn but always so prissily sincere and lacking in humour… As regards Israel the left had better get used to the idea of it being round because the only way it’s going to disappear is after a “very very big war”, not something we should be encouraging. Support Israel and support freedom!

  20. 20
    Do Guardianistas ever venture outside of North London except to visit Tuscany? says:

    Time to face reality.

    Election for mayor of London. Constant reporting in the press

    Election for PCCs outside of London. No reporting in the press.

    This is the real bias in our London centric media.

  21. 21
    Fuck off troll. says:

    What’s your game? Boring us into submission. Etch.

  22. 22
    Dirty Desmond says:

    before you go Gweeds, there’s some shit on me knob wants cleaning up after a big session with the rent boys last night celebrating the incineration of a few hundred more crocodiles in Gaza. you don’t think I pay you £50k for writing in that rag, do you?

  23. 23

  28. 28
    Cato Street Conspirator says:

    But in which way is the cartoon mistaken? You only had to hear Vague on the radio this morning saying the point was to be even handed – and then say it was all the fault of Hamas.

  29. 29

  33. 33
    The Guardian says:

    We have a common purpose and that is to be racists against Israel. We can’t wait for the islamic take over of the world when all us leftie bed wetters and mongs will be first against the wall………oh…………………………hang on…………

  34. 34

    They have introduced new torture techniques thus forcing people to read their shiite. Getting them to actually buy their shiite involves extreme forms of gaslighting

    Dignity on a tin-tack says:

    Poodle on a stick, puppet on a string, pigs bladder on a gravy train. They are all of a muchness. There are few really original insults in politics, but a cartoonist has to keep churing them out to make a living.

  46. 46

    Wait until Barry opens the purse strings!!

  47. 47
    Dignity on a tin-tack says:

    Yes, he is a kind enough to host this site so it would be rude to point out his blindspots to tyranny too regularly. Not that a few people don’t keep trying.

  48. 48

    How true. I wonder how well they are doing financially with that approach?

  49. 49

    Well said Pantsdown.
    At least you have personal military experience, unlike Dave and Tone.
    Thanks for stating the obvious about Afghanistan.

    The Garudina is humourless from end to end. Including its cartoons.

  51. 51

    Hamas, Irans’ territorial revolutionary Guards? Surely they cannot be at all at fault?

  52. 52

    You don’t need to be a military genius, or even an old soldier to know that the Afghan adventure is well past its sell-by date. The British army should pull out immediately.

  59. 59
    Bill says:

    Ever since the guardian moved form manchester, it has become more london centric, not aided by being captured by a london lefty elite.

    the bbc is the same with many of its programmes based in london. when was the last mainstream series set in manchester, liverpool, or the north apart from ashes to ashes and even then that was based on the 80’s

    The Left threw its lot in with radical Islam long ago.

    The question is – why does the Left continue to bed with Islamism – as Islamism plans for the destruction of all the Left claims to stand for.

    Two totalitarian movements, working together, but to what end.

    Norman Stanley Fletcher says:

    The Divided Kingdom had two goes (I think) at Afghanistan in the 19th century, which both failed. Then the Soviet Union, with all its military resources, failed in the 1980s. Now the DK and USA are going to fail together. Why is the pattern obvious to all of us outside the ruling classes, but not to those inside the Wastemonster/Shitehall village? How many more gypsy bikers (great song, Bruce) have to come home in coffins before we get the feck out?

  73. 73
    Anonymous says:

    This is such a ridiculous juxtaposition. You stirring little fuckwit. And the bulk of the people who write comments on your blog appear to be mentally imbalanced, which speaks volumes.

  74. 74

    He’s about as subtle as a house brick. No doubt he’d have been chucking his share of bricks through windows on Kristal Nacht if he’d been there at the time.

  75. 75
    Mulberry says:

    For the absence of doubt, Bell’s cartoon is the left half of the picture posted, the right half is an old Nazi propaganda picture.

    Bell’s cartoon

    Arguably it’s a bad choice of image, although the thrust of the latter that it is part of an incumbent government’s electoral strategy is somewhat different to the silent global conspiracy idea of the former.

    Question being, does the objection here mean that Bell is only allowed to present in a cartoon the idea that political leaders in country X are conducting policies to orchestrate a desired international reaction if country X is not Israel? Or just that he should find a different way to do it?

  76. 76
    Cato Street Conspirator says:

  80. 80

    Even handed, Mr Spencean Philanthropist? Is that what you would call the brave jihadists of Hamas? Does that mean they would be cutting off both?

    If you had read my reply to your post, you would see firstly satire, but making the point that if you insist on kicking a known violent, fighting dog, it will keep biting you. The only sensible strategies are, try and kill the dog before it kills you (Hamas’s favoured repeat strategy – I wonder how THAT’S working?) or leave it the hell alone.

    I think defolicled Vague is well aware of Israel’s shortcomings, but I’M happy to discuss it further.

    Billy Macwang says:

    Seems to me there’s a fair few Daily Mail readers posting on here while they’re checking nipping for a quick finger-bang over Hitler’s legacy or however they get off. The Times is as bad, it’s for cat fuckers in tweed who go ‘punting’ and have a picture of an Alsatian stuck to the wife’s face during copulation.

    They often probably don’t but it is fun to have an aunt sally to attack. They probably tell themselves they are not racist at all and some of their best friends are whatever. But…

    People are usually blind to their own faults. Such is the human condition.

  93. 93
    Penfold says:

    Such demonisation of Jews by a lefty.
    Litvinoff must be in a tailspin, particualrly as he was replaced by Molotov, so as to assuage Ribbintrop and the Nazi’s apathy towards Jews in general so as to facilitate the infamous Non-Agreesion Pact between Hitler and Stalin of Aug 1939.
    You would think, in this 21st Century, that we in the west would be rather loth to smear people by race or creed, particularly given our PC’ness.
    BUT, NO, Steve Bell feels that he has some divine right to demonise Jewry.
    Amazing, and needless to say no-one will be complaining to the rozzers that this is representative of race hatred and the author should be arrested in a dawn raid and questioned for hours by the filth.

    Yours thoroughly disgusted,

    Is it a picture OF an Alsatian stuck to the wife’s face during copulation, suggesting oral bestiality or was it meant to suggest that a picture OF an Alsatian should be taped to the wife’s face, during copulation? (Suggesting poor grammar)

    I think we should be told.

    Everything is now clear. The whole Saville/BBC/Guardian/Tory Party/Labour councillor/ Scotland Yard/Boys home Paedo row was created by Mossad to divert the BBC and the British Press from reporting on Israel buggering little Gazans.

    Anglicanus Ortus says:

    I have to ask: is there anything that either Israel or a Jewish person could do which would, in any circumstances whatsoever, get a negative reaction from Guido?

    Funny to read comments complaining of anti-semitism, yet never dealing with the fact that anti-semitism is a reaction to anti-gentilism.

    The juwes aren’t the victims, they foment the wars and have the dumb goyim fight and die while they profit from it all then claim victimhood as everyone reacts to their evil treachery, they just whine and qvetch about everything and print an alternative version of history in their newspapers and programmes on TV.
    Thank God the Mexicans own Hollywood or we’d never get away from the whole horrocost myth revisted every year.

    Ultimately the only reason the above cartoon is inaccurate is because it doesn’t include the entire web of all major politicians across the entire Occident.

    OY Vey, ve kill and murder and slay our way through history, our professors teach the goyim they were the slavemasters, and they always unfairly blame us for our murders…I mean blood libel…it’s dere evil nazi fault, give reparations, I’m a survivor, give money make Moishe happy.

    The commenter at No 72 above, who wrote that “Britain had two goes at Afghanistan in the 19th century, which both failed” is talking historical nonsense.

    All three Afghan Wars (during the 19th-early 20th centuries) in which Britain engaged, despite two early defeats, ended in ultimate victory and a successful achievement of the British war aims.

    These were to ensure that Russia was not able to use Afghanistan as a route to invade India, and to ensure that the ruler of Kabul remained neutral during any major conflict in the area in which Britain was engaged. It was never the aim to occupy Afghanistan in the long-term, much less to add it to the Empire.

    The current NATO war aims are to ensure that Al Quaeda is not able to use Afghanistan as a base from which to attack the West, and to ensure that any future Kabul regime is either friendly or neutral. These aims are perfectly achievable.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
