Tessa Jowell on journalism

“Frankly, you know, those arseholes are so fucking rancid that I just hope every morning they wake up and think: ‘I’m ashamed of the job I do.’”

    I think the same about the shits on the Today programme and all the arseholes in the Palace of Westminster.

    Her rant makes no sense, surely journalists are the last people to have any shame, mornings, afternoons or whenever.
    Isn’t ‘rancid arsehole’ some kind of achievement or perhaps promotion. .?

      Terrible language from a woman who is reputed to want to be mayor of London.
      She must be replaying her inability of understanding what a budget is, like in her multiple losing efforts over the Olympics, and then forgetting security costs.
      I wonder where her “past” husband is now?

        WHAT DOES SHE MEAN BY TELLING A JOURNALIST OR INDEED ANYONE ON THE PUBLIC HIGHWAY IN POSSESSION OF PHOTOGRAPHIC EQUIPMENT TO

        “FUCK OFF IN FIVE MINUTES OR I LL CALL THE POLICE ” ??

        IS IT NOW A CRIME TO ” FLOUT” ONE S EQUIPMENT ON PUBLIC LAND ?

        IT IS NOT THE PHOTOGRAPHERS FAULT IF SHE PERCEIVES HIS PROFESSIONAL ORGAN TO RESEMBLE A PENIS !!

        AFTER ALL ” BEAUTY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER ” N EST PAS ?

    “The delay and shenanigans” are proof positive that – Blair is guilty of all manner of criminal acts.

    i.e. If it had been in any way otherwise – there would ‘not’ have been all the stalling, procrastination, evasion, delay and obfuscation. And by so acting in such a manner the establishment have walked themselves right into a corner and hoisted themselves by their own petard.

    Rather what I think about most Labour MPs, especially those who tolerated and indeed supported Gordon Brown.

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.”
