        “Who is funding Hacked Off?”

        The usual elitist Fabian suspects of course.

        Who are hacked off? What is their political agenda? Why do they go on all the news channels claiming to speak for me?

        One of them just went on Sky and said I wanted the regulation of the UK press controlled by MPs and lawyers.

          Hacking by News International Bad, email and text collection by The State Good.

          • U Jenicks says:

            The “State” comprises people. So why don’t we just get rid of all these “people” then everything would be fine.

          • leftist apologist says:

            After the uprising of the 17th of June
            The Secretary of the Writers’ Union
            Had leaflets distributed in the Stalinallee
            Stating that the people
            Had forfeited the confidence of the government
            And could win it back only
            By redoubled efforts. Would it not be easier
            In that case for the government
            To dissolve the people
            And elect another?

    When British people were asked to join the Common market it turned out to be a scam to turn Europe into an Empire.

    When Britain signed the European Human Rights Act to cater for refugees it turned out to be a charter for mass immigration and for criminals to escape justice.

    When Britain passed the Health and Safety Act it turned out to be a way for scheming underhand lawyers to make money.

    Now Britain is being asked to make the state regulate the press and we are asked to believe it will not damage the freedom of the press. We know who is bonkers on this and it isn’t Cameron.

    Old Lancashire saying.

    When in doubt – do nowt.

      Remember the Groundnut Scheme? – or are you too young? – anyway – that’s the EUSSR in a ‘nut shell’ – and Camertwatty is leading the UK mob! Fuck him!

        Too young? If he’s UKIP he’ll be an old fart.

        Jimmy Carter, America's Answer To Tony Blair, says:

        The Groundnut Scheme worked in America, at any rate. Grow groundnuts instead of cotton, and we’ll subsidize you, buy all your output, and turn it into pe*anut butter and feed it to the US Army during WWII. That’s how my family got rich. Good old Yankee resourcefulness! Of course, leave it to you British to make a soup sandwich of it in Tanganyika.

      My gran used to tell me to make haste slowly. These old wives certainly knew a thing or two, didn’t they?

        Granny really did know best. says:

        Sure did. They knew how to control a tight household budget as well.
        Jam jars on the mantelpiece method. One for rent, one for food, one for fuel, etc etc. Split the available pennies accordingly. “Never a borrower nor a lender be”

        It should be the same for the country as a whole. But our LabLibCon politicians are only interested in buying the votes of the stupid plebs with borrowed or printed money.

        They are thieving troughing self-serving incompetent bastards.

    Is it libelous to call the people of Rotherham utter knobjockeys?

      UKIPman says:

      The Labour party are a bunch of Westminster tarts who would sell their bodies to the devil for a few votes, as they did with Murdoch, as they are doing with their assault on press freedom.

        A lovely smokescreen is this sham pretend concern for the unfortunate ordinary people who have been roughed up by the meeja.

        Very useful for hiding that we politicians want to trough and lie in protected from any exposure. “B list” celebs like Huge Grunt only want positive publicity for their crap greedy luvvy lifestyles.

    While i think i understand the pain of press intrusion that the “victims”,who were well renumerated,endured,i feel a bit queasy when i see Mr McCann and Mr Jefferies clammering for a system to shackle the press.!They are very left and using this as a means to kick the government,particularly the conservatives.Are they CP trained and brainwashed?
    Resist their politically motivated request ,that would be the beggining of the end for genuine investigative journalism, Please,keep our naughty press unfettered,as the alternative is awful.

      Common Purpose at Work says:

      The McCanns were more than pleased with their treatment by the press for the first six months. The press gave them daily press conferences where they were painted in the most positive light even though the man in the street was shocked that they went out on the piss every night leaving their children all alone in a strange appartment.

      Even when the British blood hounds identified that a dead body had been in their appartment and car boot the British press said nowt and it was not until they were made official suspects and fled Portugal that the Press started reporting what the rest of the European press was reporting.

      Far from being badly treated the McCanns were well treated by the British press. They didn’t say anything about Robert Murat being genuinely badly treated though.

      There was also nothing said at Leveson about Gordon Brown appointing Clarence Mitchell the head of his Media Monitoring Unit as their press spokesman. Christopher Jefferies is the only so called.victim who does have a good case.

        Egg fucking zactly. Shite journalism aside they both went on the piss leaving their 3 year old looking after the younger kids and now have the conceit, the unrelenting victim complex to attempt to lecture elected representatives. Best thing they could do is hekp other parents and fuck the fuck off. Sorry about their kid and stuff but they really are taking the piss.

        • 26
          Curious says:

          Why were the McCanns,not charged with child neglect,as normal people would be in the same predicament.

          • genghiz the kahn says:

            Unfit parents, foster their children, ring up Joyce Thacker to review the case.

            Good job they aren’t UKIP members.

          • Clarence Mitchell, special envoy to Gordon Brown says:

            Simples. They are Labour supporters and not UKIP supporters.

            So even if the UKIP supporters give the children in their care unconditional love, and the Labour voting parents go ut on the piss night after night leaving their 3 year old babysitting her younger twins. The UKIP people have their children confiscated and the Labour parents have the full support of the Labour PM and his team.

            It’s wrong, so very wrong.

        But is 250,000 visitors reading 20 or so pages better than 121,000 reading nearly 600,000? how many of the NS visitors came back for more? Lies, damn lies and …etc

        (Sums never was my strong point)

    Tom Tomos says:

    Well said in your interview with Humphrys this morning. When the DTP is a distant memory (10 years?) we’ll all wonder what all the fuss was about.

    The only way for any state to ‘get’ you for internet misdemeanours is simply to pass laws extending jurisdiction. That is to say, we don’t care ‘where’ you publish, if you are physically in our jurisdiction, you’re nicked. There is precedent in this, British citizens can be arrested and tried in the UK for murder committed anywhere in the world. Of course, the Americans already think that the whole world is within their jurisdiction.

    It ain’t over yet!

    Legislation to permit gay marriage = good
    Legislation to regulate the press = bad

    Priorities eh?

    • 31
      Whipper/Snapper says:

      Seems to me those priorities are right – or am I missing something?

      • 34
        UKIPman says:

        The highest priority right now is not to set off on the journey to becoming a state like Russia, Venezuela or Zimbabwe.

    According to the Slog an 80-year-old is being interviewed by Plod about sex crimes. I don’t know who it is yet.
    Am I alone in not wanting to believe this?

Kevin Maguire on the less than electrifying Ed Miliband…

“I bet if you went into a pub tonight and started a conversation about ­politics you’d hear strong opinions. David Cameron would be out of touch and Nick Clegg despised while Nigel Farage would divide people sharply. Miliband? In a lot of boozers he’d be the fourth most interesting man in British politics.”
