#BenefitsStreet Produced by Labour Supporter

The lefties and truth deniers are gearing up for another episode of Channel Four’s Benefits Street tonight with organised protests both on and offline. Labour supporters are calling it ‘Tory propaganda” and as Guido reported last week one of their activists called for the show’s producers to be killed for lifting the lid on life on James Turner Street in Birmingham where almost everyone lives on benefits. Awkwardly for the moaners one of these evil right-wing smearer is one of their own. Julia Higginbottom is a well known Brummie Labour Party supporter. The Tory stooge!

    Shouldn’t they be protesting about the poverty, the scroungers and the criminals this show exposes?

    Shouldn’t you be protesting in Birmingham and campaigning to stop the idleness, criminality and wasted lives that the show illustrates?

    The left can squeeze as much as they like,the shit will still run through their fingers.
    As long as there are blogs like this where we can all share our own experiences and realise no we are not alone their efforts at censorship are doomed.

    lojolondon says:

    I think your first sentence covers the question – the Loony Lefty produced a show that she thought would expose the ‘brutality of the cutz’ and how desperate the people on benefits are because of the ‘system’ and the ‘cruel government’. But she hadn’t realised that everyone who works and pays tax would be against these beggars, not behind them.
    Reminds me of the foolish Biased BBC, when they did an analysis on some bloke who had 10 children and was going to be affected by the benefits cap. You may remember that he spent £200 a week on beer and cigarettes, and he had Sky subscription, there was a massive backlash from people who work a 40 hour week and can’t afford such luxuries – massive own-goal for the BBC. Again.

    It is sad that countless folks who have been made redundant and forced to become Benefit claiments through no fault of their own are included in the admittedly existant scrounger MPs and unemployed workingclass. But it’s up to you if you believe what the well off, highly paid TV producers try to manipulate you into believing. If it’s on the TV screen it must be true? Not on your life.
    Wake up and speak up folks! Your silence is taken as approval of the manipulators actions.

    Don’t expect the BBC to know the difference although of course the irony is that BBC Employees are liable as they are “public employees” whereas e,g the Editor in Chief of a privately owned newspaper isn’t

    “Misconduct in public office is an offence at common law triable only on indictment. It carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. It is an offence confined to those who are public office holders and is committed when the office holder acts (or fails to act) in a way that constitutes a breach of the duties of that office.”

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
