Free Bercow Update

Turns out someone did say it yesteday…

Susan Elan Jones (Clwyd South) (Lab):

I pay great tribute to you, Mr Speaker, for the honesty you have shown in saying that you got it wrong on the apartheid issue. I have to confess that once upon a time I stood waving a placard outside the university of Bristol union against someone who was viewed as a very right-wing member of the Federation of Conservative Students. I could not possibly name that person; suffice it to say that I think he looks rather better sat in a green chair and wearing a tie with the flag of South Africa on it.

Mr Speaker:

Yes, I fear it was on 23 October 1986; I remember it only too well. I am grateful to the hon. Lady, I am sure, for reminding me.

Eternally grateful.

          Truth WILL OUT says:

          Mandela has been brain-dead since July but was left on life support for a movie to be completed about Mandela and the completion of a legal battle between his family members.

          The world has been completely deceived by a highly orchestrated public relations, media, and propaganda campaign to the benefit of the international communists. The agenda of President Mandela included unlimited abortion rights, legalizing all pornography, and an attempt to legalize prostitution. Mandela was a supporter of same-sex marriage.
          Mandela’s abortion and communist agenda was worse than Apartheid.

          This is a broadcast that further reveals why conservative broadcast outlets and print media have been compromised and many refuse to broadcast the truth or simply are not aware of the truth.

        Well John, do you remember changing the designation of your second home on more than one occasion – meaning that you avoided paying capital gains tax on the sale of two properties? And do you recall claiming just under £1,000 to hire an accountant to fill in your tax returns?
        This was exposed in 2009 you little shit.

          Sir William Wayde says:

          He wasn’t a terrorist. He never belonged to, or supported, Umkhonto se Sizwe during its violent phase (which was, of course, very ineffective). Mandela was a conservative Christian radical.

          • Sir William Wayde says:

            Sorry, “we Sizwe”. My Xhosa a bit wobbly.

            Hamba suga wena, umlungu!

          • Jack Ketch says:

            You are half right and also half wrong. Mandela was a founder of MK and has claimed responsibility for MKs actions in the 1980s that were initially targeted against property–power stations, railway lines and the vitally important Rowntree chocolate factory, but soon involved a very large number of innocent bystanders–mainly black people.
            There is a reasonably full list here
            You are correct that, apart from publicity, MK were mainly ineffective as they usually botched the job, blew themselves up together with their victims or ran away when faced with people who could shoot back.
            Of course lobbing a hand grenade into a crowded night club or spraying a church congregation with machine-pistol fire is a bit tougher than facing even a 60 year old police reservist isn’t it? Who ordered the all the murders in the ANC camps in Zambia and Angola, ?
            I heard that that nice Mr Stalin didn’t know about all those gulags or purges either.

    Just sayin' says:

    It does seem strange that at that time Bercow was not “on-side” in terms of enlisting other minority groups for the chosen ones’ agenda of race equality (but of course the blacks were the majority in SA).

    But then look at who the “whites” were behind the race equality and “armed struggle” is SA.

    i.e. the likes of Denis Goldberg, Helen Suzman, Arthur Goldreich and Ronnie Kasrils. Only when people start to see the J’ewish connection will they start to begin to understand who and what agenda is behind what is happening and that the same modus operandi is being used here in the UK to subvert our nation state.

    Kasrils was even on R4′s Today programme yesterday morning finally conceding the fact that Black rule in SA has been an unmitigated disaster. Too sorry, too late.

    Bercow’s kind is playing us (and rest of the HoC shower I might add) all for fools.

    It will all end in tears here too.

    I don’t like Bercow but his past support for apartheid must be causing some degree of cognitive dissonance amongst the racist apartheid loving righties here who hate Bercow and blacks in equal measure.

    • 39
      jimbooooow says:

      And yet the right consistently pushes for freedom and personal rights, the very opposite of apartheid. I think comments such as the ridiculous 23 are the dopey lefties forever upset that the worst dictators of the 20th century, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pol, Castro, the list goes on, were firmly of the left.

      Hence the insistence that Mandela was a Saint incapable of doing any wrong to try to give a clear-cut issue on which nobody is allowed to argue which just happens to suit the left. He was a man who eventually chose a better way and it was in large part thanks to him that in the early 90s SA didn’t fall into civil war. However he was far from perfect and to say so does not imply support for government sanctioned racialism. Even Amnesty International had to strip him of his status as a prisoner of conscience after he moved to advocating/not speaking out against/complicit approval/ knowledge of/acceptance (many choose different associations) of a violent approach

        Jack Ketch says:

        Any examination of National Party philosophy and policies from the 1930s to about 1978 shows that their true soulmates and political mentors were the Labour Party of Great Britain, not the Conservatives.

          “I urge all British young men and women to study closely the progress of the Nazi regime in Germany. They must not be misled by the misrepresentations of its opponents. The most spiteful detractors of the Nazis are to be found in precisely the same sections of the British public and press as are most vehement in their praises of the Soviet regime in Russia. They have started a clamorous campaign of denunciation against what they call “Nazi atrocities” which, as anyone who visits Germany quickly discovers for himself, consists merely of a few isolated acts of violence such as are inevitable among a nation half as big again as ours, but which have been generalized, multiplied and exaggerated to give the impression that Nazi rule is a bloodthirsty tyranny.

          The British Union of Fascists: “a well-organised party of the right ready to take over responsibility for national affairs with the same directness of purpose and energy of method as Hitler and Mussolini have displayed”.

          • The New Messiah says:

            By your reckoning Germans must be really evil people because they fought and killed for the National Socialists of Hitler. All Rothermere did was to say some things in his favour before WW2 and took his side against the Communists in Germany. And we all know what happens when communists get in control of countries like Russia and China.

          • jimbooooow says:

            Pity the same sort of thing was in the Mirror.

            Those who saw National Socialist Hitler as a defence against the evils of socialist-communist tyranny from the USSR were wrong, having picked an equally evil and socialist lunatic.

            But what does that prove. I could copy and paste how the Guardian denounced the creation of the NHS because it would allow genetically inferior people to live and breed. Doesn’t prove all lefties today are into eugenics, though many outside the working class are openly anti-British racialists.

    I was out in a couple of bars last night and I can report that there were a lot of men that seemed to have issues with anger and were probably fucked up with drugs over some time and there was maybe 2 women who looked really fit but the rest were like skanky slags but what I thought was interesting was the outgoing behavior, girls flashing their tits and guys threatening other guys and girls with violence. I’m not sure that we have given our children the proper upbringing and have created a society that is a bit fucked up mentally.

      I’m shocked by your account, though. What has come of society in the 21st century?

      Let’s consider another incident involving violence, alcohol and angry men. About 11pm, a bunch of men assaulted a bunch of other men at a pub. There were several injuries, including a broken jawbone, a broken arm and a wound to the head. This shocking incident happened as recently as 7th September…. 1715.

      Thomas Cotton and Charles Warren, of London, Labourers, were indicted, for that they, with several others yet unknown, did Assault in a riotous and tumultuous Manner, Joseph Bell, and several others, on the 28th of May last, about 11 a Clock at Night. The Council for the King open’d the Charge, and then proceeded to give the following Evidence. The first swore, That on the Night aforesaid he was at the Fountain Tavern in Stocks market; that a Bonfire being at the Door, he, with some more Gentlemen went down to it, to drink King George’s Health; and that a Mob came down and abus’d several that drank it; crying out, Ormond, High Church,&c. Another Evidence depos’d the same; and nam’d some particular Injuries, viz. One Gentleman had his Jaw-Bone broke, another had his Arm broke, and another receiv’d a very desperate Wound in his Head; with a great many other unsufferable Affronts and Abuses which he thought too tedious to mention; but that Mr. Bell’s Hand had receiv’d a great Contusion, and was very bloody. Another depos’d he heard the same Cry, and they hiss’d the King’s Health, threw Firebrands into the House, and almost murder’d several who were about the Bonfire.

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
