12 Things Buzzfeed Need to Know About the British Blogosphere

Guido would like to welcome BuzzFeed to the UK online scene. They’ve had a highly prolific first day and are pressing the right buttons with their booze up tonight. Guido thought he would share with them some top tips for surviving the British blogosphere:

  • Iain Dale invented the online list format in Britain before you.
  • Don’t worry about HuffPo over here, they couldn’t break a window.
  • Waking up before lunch is not a necessity, see Political Scrapbook.
  • The rate you should charge for #SkyPapers is £300.
  • It’s very important to Paul Waugh that he gets credited for any story, pun or hashtag.
  • SideBoob stories are an admission of creative failure.
  • Take the phrase evidence based blogging with a pinch of salt.
  • If the New Statesman’s Alex Hern sends you another job application, just send him back this:

  • “Dr” Eoin Clarke writes about healthcare a lot but ignore him because he is not a doctor and he is always wrong.
  • We recommend a flame war with Derek Draper.
  • Meet Larry and Freya. You’ll like these two.

And finally…

The number one rule:

You’re either in front of Guido, or behind…

        David Cameron’s immigration crackdown unravels

        A major crackdown by David Cameron on immigration was unravelling rapidly today after it emerged that it would only affect a small minority of foreigners in Britain.

          The way to sort this problem is to go door to door and root out the illegals being harboured among the ‘legal population’: deporting everyone caught and fining their relatives. The government are too scared of their own shadows to do that.

            Or.. make it a capital offence to be in Britain illegally.

          The bbc are in full attack mode tonight talking down any attempts to cut/reform or (if only) stop immigration.

          I notice they haven’t been anywhere near Bradford, Rochdale, etc., and definately not allowing the public, who are affected by it all, to have a say.

          That old shrieking hag Maitland is on Newsnight now shouting down any comment from Farage. Tell you what Maitland, you want the immigrants, have them housed all around you. No? Thought not.

          • Says it all says:

            I have to add this, the Indian boss of Cobra beer is saying this is deterring Indians from immigrating to this country. If only………..

          • No surprise there then says:

            Its direct self interest. The BBC is packed with immigrants, alll giving each other a nepotistic leg up the ladder and using mullti-culturalism to do so.

            The BBC is many things, but these days it is not very representative of British society.

          • Matilda says:

            Don’t forget all those lovely city jobs, banks are employing a lot of them now, highly qualified individuals, if they can not get a ready supply they will move their operations to India or somewhere else in the far east where the wages are much lower, in the computer age you not have to be based in London.

          It is just a PR/spin/sound bite from Cameron of no substance or conviction. He’ll never live next to an illegal Slovenian drug dealer ( I have very recently) and his customers. The local cops were simply not interested, so sorry to say as an redundant service man I took another route and called in some old comrades. I’ve only been back in the UK for 8 months and I’ve seen more action clearing f_cking low life scum off my own doorstep than I did in my last operational tour! I’m stashing cash (and it is cash) and then I’ll f_ck off for good (got a security job out East that pays well and I don’t have to come back here). No one who remembers England even from 10 – 15 years ago will want to come back to this. Cameron and his mates are just finishing off the job of the last Ponzi lot from what i see.

      Butch arsebandit Dave says:

      Now listen up, I’ve just been handed by my banking/mega corporations handlers the latest PR version of the Global Warming fraud to sell to the cretinous spastic English plebs.

      It says and I quote, ‘to explain away this temporary inCONvenient cold snap – the one that’s being going on for the last 17 years so far – the BBC and all the other mainstream media lackeys are to flood internet fora with some cock and bull about melting ice caps diverting the gulf stream.’

      Even I think it’s fucking far fetched, but apparently the handlers say if it’s in a Hollywood movie the spastic Brits will take it as gospel, as their minds, after 50+ years of continuous Bernaysian PR/propaganda, are now mush.

      Anyway, that’s the story – melting ice caps; diverted Gulf Stream and arctic Britain – all caused by hideously White selfish old biddies putting the kettle on, claiming their pension too long, when they should be long dead, and when hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ pounds should be going to properly deserving cases like multi-millionaire East End porn peddlers and my father in laws’ windmills. God I love this country! The plebs are even thicker than I am.

      First there was the O’Farrell stuff on Thatcher, then:

      Not to be too critical of Sands, but he was a banged to rights terrorist and perhaps not someone to be admired. His death by starvation did lead to riots which claimed the lives of a milkman and his son.

      In any case, Sands was MP for only 25 days, and did not take either seat or oath in that time.

      On the plus side, suicide vest or starvation for OJ would be awesome, and could help with various struggles, like perhaps reducing the twits on twitter.

        EU Watch says:

        The only relevance that the h3brew faith has in any of this is that the EU clearer hates both the goy and schnorrer.

        Krugman is a liberal left mong whose economics is trash, and most certainly not free market.

        His views on this managed collapse, not that a collapse was inevitable closer to the date, is very soviet.

        The deeper message here is that the market should perhaps just look at EU policy, and arbitrage that. The capital mis-allocations which are occurring right now will guarantee collapse in any case, and when shortage starts to hit tyranny will be brought down on the many to ensure the political system remains in place.

        A very dark day for Europe indeed.

        • 62
          brown-dog says:

          Does Krugman have anything to say about the statistical likelihood of his 2% of the population owning so much of the nation’s wealth, or it being so disproportionately frequent amongst the nation’s most influential economists (and recent White collar alleged-criminals and venals)? Is it not odd that so many have been great admirers of such people? It’s like the behaviour of “molls”.

        • 64
          brown-dog says:

          When you (and no doubt others) cite people like Krugman, is it because Krugman (and others) present any formal logic or any sound empirical evidence? Or is it because in your view, he writes (“argues”) authoritatively and entertains and impresses you (and others).

          This is a a serious question/point, because, believe it or not, to be impressed and/or influenced by authority or by a name (who wins business prizes) is often an example of the ad hominem (PR) at work (argument from authority).

          Is this not precisely what is wrong with Libertarian celebritism?. Is it at root not exactly what has gone wrong in our society? First prizes are created for an in-crowd. Then, these people are given platforms. Then their celebrity status is used to endorse other products. It’s all a theatrical construction, and what they utter is performance art.

          Is it not all a case of mistaken identity? False Credit Assignment?
          Paranoia?

      I’m wary of this Zerohedge website. It seems to massively negatively spin just as others positively spin.

Are the “assets” of the Cypriot banks other Cypriot/foreign landlords’ and companies’ investments, or is it really the humble (and often all too easily duped) homeowner/mortgagee? At present, I don’t think any of us know, and that’s very convenient for some, and that’s what worries me.

          “You know, one could be forgiven for thinking the EU is trying to destroy us.”

          It isn’t an EU conspiracy, it was a US Project after the war to stop France and Germany going to war again by integrating both of their steel and coal mining industries i.e. a common market of the means of production. That and their funding through the Marshall Plan (which became the OECD) and the writing of the German Constitution is what the European Project and EU is. It is no conspiracy. It was open. The USA does its foreign policy through its NGOs like the banks on Wall Street, the UN (NY), World Bank (Washington) the IMF etc.. As the USA is NOT a Command Economy it has to do its politics this devolved way, i.e. through its “market forces”.

          Please take this on board. Russia and China etc know this. So should you and others. Too many people demand action here when they don’t live under that sort of “dictatorship”.

          The PIIGS and the UK have born the brunt of Wall St/NYC led post-war Libertarianism (Social Democracy) and are the geographic gates into Europe for migrants.

          Immigration is abused to break statism.

            It’s a corporatist/fascist project. It’s about the EU protecting the rights of predatory capitalism to enrich the few.

            After WWII a customs union was formed to help coerce Germany and France to get on better.

            It was never envisioned or meant to turn into a European Union, or the screwed up crypto-communist pseudo-federal union which is emerging now.

            Certainly for the UK, signing up to any more than a customs union was not understood back in 1974.

        Don't say the government didn't know years ago says:

        Blinky Balls blamed the shortage of places (already evident when Labour were stil iln power and critical in some parts of London) on the failure of parents and local government.

        During a visit to Walthamstow on Wednesday 24th March 2010, Ed Balls was asked what the Government was planning to do to alleviate the severe shortage in Waltham Forest, where 162 children had still not been allocated a school for September. The problem wa expected to get worse, with 48 extra classes needed by 2012

        Mr Balls said: “It is the job of local government to plan for the future .

        “What has happened in the last two or three years is there has been an unexpected shortage of places in some boroughs, caused by a number of factors including less people using private schools”

        Yes, that’s right. In one of London’s porrest boroughs, in the process of being overrun by mass immigration, the fault was British parents not sending their children to private schools.

      Think about how they are also trying to undermine Russia. They sent in the Chicago Boyz (Jeffry Sachs & Co) to set up their free-market economy which most of the Oligarchs (nearly all J*wish when you look them up) have greatly benefitted from. Russia is becoming just like the US with 2% of their kind owning nearly all of the former state’s assets (ownership of the means of production!).

      Look at who is funding the Russian NGO’s that were organising anti-Putin/Gov’t demonstrations around 1-2 years ago (Pussy Riot indeed!). Though Putin has done well to close down those money streams that fomented economic anarchism there.

The Romanians basically confine them to ghettos which are no go areas for the state agencies and I’m dead certain they will be giving them assisted passages to Britain as soon as they are allowed. Those three sat in the comfy BBC studio have no idea what is happening in the real world.

        By the way remember all the Romanian Orphanages and the appalling conditions within? Very few people thought to ask Why and the BBC certainly did not broadcast the reason why. Millions of pounds were collected and tens of thousands of people travelled across Europe to help out in the Orphanages but hardly anyone asked WHY?

        • 156
          EU Watch says:

          Am familiar with both countries, my above based in reality.

          People should do a little Googling on the orphanage issue as the answers to the ‘why’ question you mentioned are both startling, awful and should be known as they help paint the picture of what is headed this way.

          The real organized criminal element one suspects is already established in the UK. This is perhaps why the government is so gung ho on this issue, as some may have irrefusable offers on the table, and guns literally to the head.

          Understanding that side of things also helps understand some of the rougher edges on real European politics as well. Too many people view Europe politic through the rose tinted glasses they view Westminster.

          • Roma says:

            The first mistake is to call them orphans as the majority are not orphans. Quite why Europe and the world overlooked this most basic fact is very strange. Perhaps people do not want to know, it’s far easier to deal with orphans than the truth.

      Why don’t you fools get it…pro-immigration is a libertrian right-wing ideal/policy.

      Do not confuse socialism-in-one country with international-socialism. The former is truly left-wing, the latter is a right-wing shill.

      New Labour (as are the Lib Dems and Cons) are pro free-market libertarian (right-wing) liberal democratic parties. They believe in privatisation of the means of production, banking and communication etc. etc. Net immigration serves to increase the profits of all of those private interests at the expense of the nation state and indigenous social cohesion. Net immigration = increased profits that are privatised. On the down-side, whan the economy tanks, the losses are more easily socialised.

      Why do you think we get programmes on, almost every other night (yesterday’s helping from the BBC was Warwick Davis’: The Seven Dwarfs of Auschw*tz), warning us of those evil socialism-in-one-country (national socialist) hate mongers?

      UK Watch says:

      Very good speech.

      I would venture though that the problem with the economics is not the amounts being spent but the negative impact which the perception of debt is having, and the capital mis-allocation and distortions of demand which result.

      The fundamental economic problem in the UK is that under Labour 1997 through 2010, the value of individual productivity was deflated, as were the expectations of consumption. This has led to the current problem which both business and the Tories complain about.

      The problem being at both ends: Consumption demands predominantly junk produce, and production produces junk expensively.

      Until demand comes for higher quality produce which enhances wealth creation and raises standard of living, and productive capital meets that demand at a reasonable cost, the current economic funk will persist.

      Ironically, the main cause of the funk is the reluctance of real entrepreneurs to take on risk of developing new products and ideas as they do not know if it will sell, or if they can find labor to help produce it.

      The erosion of expectations to a collectivist lowest common denominator is a fundamental problem.

        You ake some good points, which i must think through more fully. If i may make two observations:

        As a cionsumer, I find, as I look through my house full of possessions, that there are not many new things I actually want.

        As a businessman, I find there is little incentive to expand, particularly given the current regulatiry and tax burdens and the ever present threat of croney capitalists using legislative means via their corrupt client Parliament to rig the market and drive out smaller, innovative companies. The dream of many small entrepreneurs these days is to sell out to the big boys before they get crushed by them. That is not going to bring growth.

        • 185
          UK Watch says:

          Your observations I am aligned with.

          On the consumption front, most of the non food items purchased over the past few years is overtly made in Ch!na or outside of UK for sure.

          There is an overt bias preventing SME businesses from developing, and I agree that policy at the moment does appear to be discouraging new business formation. Restrictions in bank lending to SMEs are a major aspect of this.

          It is that break in lending which has caused a number of established firms to close down, and prevented the next business cycle from starting.

          Bank motivation for doing this is not clear. Either i) they really are trying to recapitalize (incredible now), ii) they do not wish to lend as they know a large portion of the loan is going to be wasted on non-productive costs by the business caused by things like Health and Safety rules etc, iii) they know in advance that the business is going to be a bad bet as it will not be able to compete successfully.

          There is another possibility that restrictions in lending could be symptomatic of monetary deflation in the real economy, the policy which the current government mislabels as ‘austerity’.

    “The monthly ComRes telephone poll for the Independent is out tonight and has topline figures of CON 28%(-3), LAB 38%(-5), LDEM 12%(+4), UKIP 14%(+5). There are some significant shifts in all the party’s figures, and unusual figures for most of the parties. The Conservatives are the lowest ComRes have shown them in a telephone poll this Parliament, Labour at the very bottom of their normal range, the Lib Dems their highest for five months, UKIP their highest ever. The broad direction of travel in the figures isn’t surprising, other polls from other companies have also shown UKIP on the rise and the Lib Dems recovering a bit, but the degree of it here is a bit startling. I would advise the usual caution I apply to any poll showing stark changes in party support.

    Meanwhile the weekly poll for TNS BMRB is also out tonight. They too show a big jump for UKIP, but in their case not the Lib Dems. Topline figures are CON 27%(+1), LAB 37%(-2), LDEM 10%(-3), UKIP 17%(+4), Others 10%(+2).”

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.”
