Adam Boulton Steps Down as Sky News Political Editor

Big Sky News news today:

“After 25 years at the frontline of political reporting, Adam Boulton will be stepping down as Sky News’ Political Editor to anchor a new evening show.   Adam’s new programme will be based at Sky News’ Westminster studio and will feature hard hitting interviews, insightful analysis and interactive elements. It will launch later this year. Adam joined Sky News when the channel started in 1989 and since then has been at the centre of political journalism. He has covered five election nights and interviewed five prime ministers over the last quarter of a century. Adam also chaired Sky’s historic Leaders’ Debate in April 2010 which he was instrumental in bringing about after years of campaigning.”

        Agree! The BBC is so like the Politburo, it is surreal.

        Even Russia does not have one any more. Politburo used to exist in the USSR, East Germany, Czechoslovakia and other Eastern Bloc countries.

        The only six countries that still have a communist politburo system now are China, North Korea, Laos, Vietnam, Cuba and the UK.

          The UK’s politburo has a special secret weapon:

          David Cameron.

          The others don’t compare with this, in terms of rabid lefty bad policy ideas and no action.

      We have become one seriously fucked up nation. Everybody is scared to voice an opinion that may be seen as un PC so as a consequence there is no original thinking at all.

      It’s because agitprop low-life scum like the SWP get behind the thieving violent melanzanas because they think it’s big, and clever and Tottingham is a bit like Sharpeville, innit?

      Their fucked-up belief system can’t cope with the fact that Muzzies are insane misanthropic Fascist cockroaches, so they keep schtum.

      A lesson from history says:

      In a nutshell the left have fucked up Britain for the past 50 years and when you get Corporation that calls itself the BRITISH Broadcasting Corporation but hates EVERYTHING British and habitually broadcasts anti-British propaganda 24 hours a day and an educational establishment that is infiltrated by the left giving our children a warped unbalanced view of Britiain, and its history you start to understand the deep rooted problem this country has and why the above doesn’t surprise anybody on these shores

        The clue is the existence of the word British in the organisation’s title. After a certain period in history, it became to mean the opposite of what it once did. British used to signify greatness.

        Then we got:
        BBC
        British Coal
        British Steel
        British Gas
        British Rail
        British Telecom
        British Airways
        British Leyland
        etc.

        All crap and piled mountain high too.

      Well you have to remember that the riots occurred when many people had been told by the Duggan family that Duggan was an innocent family man just minding his own business. Now everybody knows he was actually an armed drug dealer there isn’t quite so much motivation to set the streets alight. I expect quite a few of those that rioted (not the ones after new trainers) are feelinga bit sheepish right now.

      Meanwhile, incidents like the Lee Rigby murder have resulted in the growing strength of an organisation with between 30,000 and 100,000 members that regularly protests against militant Islam but which is laregly unreported by a press that was told some time ago not to report incidents that could lead to increased racial tension.

    Syria’s chemical weapons. British Defence Minister Philip Hammond said in a written statement to parliament today that the UK planned to gift equipment to the United States worth around £2.5 million ($4.12 million) that would allow the chemicals to be processed at a higher rate.
    Very interesting, we have the equipment and the US does not.

Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
