    “I don’t speak or read Arabic”.

    “In that case I’ll have to call the Sharia Police. Not speaking Arabic is an offence punishable by public beheading. Inshallah.”

    Maybe just maybe now that those previously tax dodging BBC presenters are going to be put on the payroll and have to suffer NIC and PAYE , the pain we ordinary mortals feel about Milliband wanting to tax us even more if elected , might just see News presenting a bit more objective.Also the BBC final salary pension fund with its holdings of Power Companies and banks, is not fireproofed against the idiocy of Balls, Milliband and Reeves.

    We are at the beginning of the end for the BBC. A few years ago at least three-quarters of commentators on newspaper threads (all shades, from Guardian to Spectator) were pro. Now pro-Beebers are like hen’s teeth. All you see is obloquy heaped on the “nonces” and “tax-dodgers” and “cronies”, together with calls for the institution to be scrapped or switched to a subscription model.

    Bring it on, I say!

    BBC says:

    “…….might just see News presenting a bit more objective”

    You fail to understand BBC recruitment policy which is as follows:-

    If your father,mother,uncle,brother,sister,grandfather, grandmother worked for the BBC there is no need to attend an interview merely complete an application form and have it delivered to BBC Human Resources and you will receive a job offer by return

    If you are middle class, attended any university member of the Russell Group that had a predominantly left wing faculty(which they ALL do)and have supported left wing politics whilst at uni or better still are a member of the Labour Party then your application will be looked on favourably especially as you will have no doubt seen the advertisement for the job in our house magaizine..”The Guardian”

    If you are working class, read the Daily Mail and support conservative policies…don’t bother applying

    Labour tried to convert Land of Hope and Glory, into Land of Scum and Benefits.

    Wouldn’t expect any different out of this idiot Reeve’s, and if they try to surprise with common sense, that can be dismissed as easily as Cameron’s cast iron bullshit.

    Better angle on all this is how Ed Balls is bringing the Fabian Society into disrepute.

    They are a well known branch of the fraternity of mongs but Ed Balls really is making them look über mong at the moment, and will continue to do so whilst he is in their fold.

    He ( McAlpine ) fell out with Chris Patten early on, suspecting his loyalties, and making a judgment about Patten’s character that he never reversed. He took a low view of him because of the greedy way in which he had seen Patten vacuum up the oysters at the lavish parties McAlpine used to give at party conferences — and said that Patten’s subsequent conduct bore out his view.

    If they really believed that there was a paradise in the afterlife then, when the J**s retaliate for the latest rocket attacks or bus bombing and blow up a few arabs then they’d be holding a fucking street party. Way-hay, Ahmed just got fast-tracked to paradise.

    The more you drink the more you pay in taxes and the more you pay in taxes the better it is for the country.

    Drinking beer is very convivial and stops public houses closing at the rate of 256 per day.

    It also keeps thousands of women in employment as part time barmaids with flexible working hours.

    Bit of a myth. It is impossible to survive in Bavaria without a Stein in your hand. Old Adolph used to drink Radler Beer often called cyclist’s beer. About 1.5% ABV. You can still get it; it is shit.

    And yet, just when the ‘Labour’ Party joins this self-serving, mean-minded and nasty attack on the poor, Oxfam put a telling report: Working For The Few. This highlights that:

    • Almost half of the world’s wealth is now owned by just one percent of the population

    • The wealth of the one percent richest people in the world amounts to $110 trillion. That’s 65 times the total wealth of the bottom half of the world’s population

    • The bottom half of the world’s population owns the same as the richest 85 people in the world

    • Seven out of ten people live in countries where economic inequality has increased in the last 30 years

    • The richest one percent increased their share of income in 24 out of 26 countries for which we have data between 1980 and 2012

    • In the US, the wealthiest one percent captured 95 percent of post-financial crisis growth since 2009, while the bottom 90 percent became poorer

    Also, having sent ‘Over-seas Aid’ to the Free Syrian Army, it now appears that Al Qaeda are getting the upper hand against the ‘good’ rebels. Luckily, MPs voted to keep out – and not help Al Qaeda with more ‘humanitarian’ bombing?

    Ah, the Gift of Gordon.
    Since apologies are much in vogue these days, I can’t help wondering when all the Labour party and it’s associated “hangers-on” (such as the BBC) are going to apologise for foisting Gordon on us as PM.
    I know “he is the best man for the job” but come on. Really? Is that the best you could do?

    Good to see Gordon contributing.

    Why is it that the ‘left-wing’ BBC News gives anyone attacking the unemployed and poor a relatively easy time – yet seems to avoid any mention the Oxfam report concerning the ever-growing gap between rich and poor? Is the BBC, Working For The Few?

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
