            Tony Blair: immigration has been good for Britain

            http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/tony-blair/9753553/Tony-Blair-immigration-has-been-good-for-Britain.html#disqus_thread

            Top few comments…

            “What he means is “immigration has been great for large companies and has depressed wages for everyone else”.

            It’s no coincidence he’s paid several million pounds a year by a large investment bank.”

            “And difficult to see how 370,000 immigrants in receipt of benefits is contributing to this country”

            “Why is he allowed to comment as a free man when he is responsible for an untold number of deaths?

            The man is a traitor and a warmonger besides being a deluded fool, would imprisonment cure him? It has to be the noose, it simply has to be.”

            “What a contemptible grub Blair is. The debate is not about the benefits of immigration. The debate is about an orgy of uncontrolled, mass immigration which has put intolerable pressures on jobs, infrastructure and societal cohesiveness. The debate is about immigrants who come to the UK and make no NET contribution because they immediately start sucking on the public tit”

            “rubbish a deliberate ploy by Labour to get labour votes and dilute the indigenous culture.”

          • Handycock Immigrant Trafficker says:

            Rubbish. My fellow Freemason of exalted rank Mr Tony Blair, Grand Inspector General 33° Royal Arch Mason, is absolutely correct about immigration, as was his successor Mr Gordon Brown, also of exalted rank. These people had to be brought in, service Industries were demanding it to keep wages down and they donate politically to get their message across. Immigrants once settled in residency normally vote for parties on the left so we would all keep our seats. Finally the native population of the UK was declining, and, as our MP pensions are unfunded, the day was fast approaching when they might not be able to pay out. On a more local scale these immigrants have to be housed and my boys and I have made a fortune out of it, and also the boys have been able to launder their ill gotten gains as the same time. All in all immigration is good for a few of us and stuff the rest of you. Boaz.

    Popcorntastic says:

    The full truth behind what happened after Andrew Mitchell allegedly called Downing Street police officers “plebs” will “surprise” people, Bernard Hogan-Howe has said. Speaking on LBC radio on Tuesday morning, the Metropolitan police commissioner triggered a wave of intrigue by suggesting the arrest over the weekend of a Diplomatic Protection Squad on suspicion of misconduct in public office was not the end of the saga.

    “That is not the whole story,” he said. “I hope when people hear the full story they will understand why I’ve had some dilemma in talking about it today. We were quite surprised at what happened and I suspect they will be too.”

    Hogan-Howe also said there was nothing he had seen that caused him to doubt the “original account” given by officers at the gates of Downing Street that accused Mitchell of calling them “plebs” – a charge the former chief whip has denied. And he told the BBC that there was “more to this than meets the eye”.

      US Watcher says:

      The AZ Senator did speak out, so it is not completely loony news.

      There are a number of people who are questioning the so far official story, not all conspiracy nuts. As more is coming out about ‘mong boy’, the other guys arrested that day at the school, dispatch tapes which seem inconsistent with the early reports etc., rightly or wrongly some rats are being smelt.

      One part of the Black-Op ‘theory’ is the press report in the Newtown Bee which seems to imply that one of their reporters interviewed the principal that morning. Logic would tell you that this would be either journalist error or fantasy reporting, but some have latched on to this as evidence which contradicts the story related to the principal. Phone records would conclusively prove one way or the other.

      The Press TV report appears to be based more on what is coming out on the blogs. The inconsistencies in the initial stories should be questioned especially in the context of what is now emerging politically.

        Quiet Bat Person says:

        From the Newtown Bee website:

        “Retraction And Apology

        An early online report from the scene at the December 14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School quoted a woman who identified herself to our reporter as the principal of the school. The woman was not the school’s principal, Dawn Hochsprung, who was killed in the Friday morning attack. The quote was removed from subsequent online versions of the story, but the original story did remain in our online archive for three days before being deleted.

        We apologize for whatever confusion this may have caused our readers and for any pain or anguish it may have cause the Hochsprung family.”

          You can tell the level of journalism by looking at the state of their site, and cruising around their archive. That ‘publication’ was working off the wire, and the phone, and in the erroneous report I mentioned had not even been proof read.

          Cheers for posting the clarification.

    From the Groiniad –

    1. “The official police log said “several members of public [were] present” during the incident. The footage shows that only one member of the public appeared to take an interest in the unfolding event.”

    2. “But Bernard Hogan-Howe, the Met’s commissioner, said he stood by the officers who claimed Mitchell called them plebs. Speaking on LBC the commissioner said: “I don’t really think from what I’ve heard up to now that it’s really affected the original account of the officers at the scene … There’s nothing I’ve seen in this fresh information that causes me to doubt that original account.”

    The CCTV shows only one guy wondering by the gate as Mitchell left not “several members of the public” and yet the Met’s Commissioner says he believes the log.

    Oh dear Mr Hogan you are now implicated in the cover-up – better check your pension.

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.”
