    You won’t hear a BBC presenter resign on air. They just love reading government bullshit as fact.

    Quote from Lenin

    “Women suffer from infantile disorder”

    He even wrote a paper on it…

    https://www.marxists.org/archive/lenin/works/1920/lwc/

    Remember, it is how the neocon (kosher?) West, attacks the statist East i.e via gender equality and women’s rights (think the Pussy Riot “useful idiots”)

    Fair play to her.

    Personally I have no problem with Putin’s actions in Ukraine but if she feels that strongly about it then good for her.

    When Blair fitted up the BBC over I’raq and then absolved himself with a @Hutton style enquiry’, that was the time for one of our brave, fearless BBC newscasters to pull exactly that stunt.

    ‘Do you know what? Fuck this, this dossier is a load of shit, Blair is a fucking liar and I will no longer be party to this deception. I quit.’

    But no. Just kept reading the autocue and taking the cash.

    Shut down the fucking BBC.

    Do it now.

    Don't forget says:

    (1) The democratically elected government of Ukraine was overthrown by rioting rebels. The comparable scenario would be Labour supporters overthrowing the Tory government, then getting support from the EU just because they were Europhiles.

    (2) If other world leaders were like Putin, the world would be a better place.

    In fairness to ex BBC types, Liz Mackean resigned from the BBC when they shafted her over the Jimmy Savile story that she worked on then got shelved.

    Most beeboids just take the money and peddle the lefty line.

    Doh! says:

    You don’t get it, do you!

    The invasion of Iraq was by the libertarian anarchistic West, which funnily enough happens to control all Western media.

    The attempt by the West to undertake a putsch in Ukraine is an attempt by the West to further libertarian Western interests. Note that both women on RT that have gone “AWOL” are both American.

    Wake up fuckwit!

    Here is some important history

    http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_Social_Democratic_Labour_Party

    Take on board that up to the early 1980s the British Labour Party was very like the Leninist Russian Labour Party. It was opposed to the equivalent of the old Russian non Leninist Labour Party (Militant Tendency were Trotskyites). Think of the New Labour Party as being this non-Leninist Labour Party and bear in mind what Thatcher’s Libertarian Government did to the unions in the 1980s and how this was continued under New Labour.

    You will then start to understand why (New Left) Ed Miliband and his 34 year old Shadow Secretary to the Treasury did not support the Public Sector strikes a year or so ago.

    These are New Left (Social Democrats) – not Old Labour. The Liberal-Democrats started out as the Social Democratic party, which was a splinter group from Old Labour plus a small Liberal Party. These were pro USA. Old Labour types are not popular with the USA and you can see this as the USA has been to war against these types (Libya, Vietnam, Cambodia, Korea, and today it is threatening Syria and Iran by proxy). Do you think the US would allow Old Labour in Britain or even Europe? This is what the Marshall Plan and EU Project, and plans for a 27 state EU Constitution super-state was designed to keep at bay – think about who the opposition are, the CIS/SCO. This is what the current EU crisis is all about. It is about furthering Libertarianism (anarchism) and rolling back the state.

  23. 23
    Tony Blair is a war criminal says:

    Putin is no saint, but you have to laugh at the west pointing their finger at him when you look at how many governments the USA, UK an EU have overthrown with massive violence.

  24. 24
    statist says:

    Here’s ust a few questions which the MSM could ask Ed Miliband but
    don’t:

    1. Are you sympathetic to Leon Trotsky’s writings? How about Joseph Stalin’s
    2. Are you a Fabian?
    3. You say you aren’t practicing, but neither are many in the Knesset are they?
    4. Do you social network?
    5. What are your views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and settlers?
    6. Are you in favour of breaking up near monopolies such as Tesco, Sainsbury etc and will you consider nationalising them?
    7. Did your dad tell you that Big Brother STOLE your train set?

    Questions of this ilk would actually tell us something about the man. Why are probing questions like these never asked?

    SIZE 14 CARBON FOOTPRINT says:

    The stupid mong probably fantasises that he’s a modern day Lenin figure , encouraging the downtrodden proletariat to rise up against the ruling classes.
    There ith nothing to looth but your chainth.

    BBC’s Kate Adie did call the Afghan war an act of willy waving. Of course this was not aired on the BBC, but in Guido’s rag the Sun.

    Funded by Russia maybe but does it follow ‘directives’ and base its editorial policy on their Government?

    Golly, if she and her friends stayed, RT ‘could’ be for Russia what the BBC and the ABC (in Oz) is for western civilisation.

    C O (Ξ5) says:

    Listen carefully to what she does not say: She does not reference Ukraine / Cr!mea as reason for her resignation.

    Seems to be further negative emotional enforcement against the idea of intervention, as the previous evenings headline making news cast did.

    the H’ungarian’s in U (~ 150k) are concerned as they believe they are considered fifth columnists for Y’anukovych (who they voted for in large numbers), and fear obvious persecution from the current nationalist govt. and T’ymoshenko if she was brought into power.

    This is one can of worms which would best be left sealed.

    Twampersand mk III says:

    I don’t really care what the Russkis do, as long as they don’t do it near me. Ukrania is a bankrupt, corrupt shithole that is none of our business. It appears to me that at least 50% of their population want Russian involvement in their affairs anyway.

    Putin is entirely correct to tell the UN, NATO, USA, UK and EU to take a running jump, and the situation exposes the reality of the piss-poor state of UK defence, and the cowardice of the US, that when a proper country with a proper army tells them to piss off, they do. There’s a big difference between bullying rag-heads and camel-jockeys, who are basically incapable of mounting any meaningful defense against US/UK invasions, and trying to bluff it out with Russia, who are not well known for their restraint during times of war.

    In the event of a war with Russia, We will run out of bullets before Russia runs of peasants.

    The second one (above) is H’ungarian-A’merican – even more to your point.

    This is still just propaganda.

    Only thing that is important now is how to defeat P’tin when the fighting starts and ensure that our values survive.

    You want to lose your only friend?
    Well, keep it up, you’re doing fine
    Why this humiliation?
    Why treat me like a fool?
    I’ve taken shit for seven years
    And I won’t take it anymore

    [THE AMERICAN]
    I’m only teasing Soviets
    With gentle bonhomie
    And you’ve a better reason to be anti-them than me.

    1956 — Budapest is rising
    1956 — Budapest is fighting
    1956 — Budapest is falling
    1956 — Budapest is dying

    [THE AMERICAN]
    I’d have thought you’d support
    Any attack on these people
    On the people who ran
    Mindlessly over your childhood
    Don’t let them fool you for
    Thirty years on they’re the same

    They see chess as a war
    Playing with pawns just like P’oland
    If you walk out on me
    They will have won their first battle
    Wouldn’t your father
    Have begged you to stay in the game?

    [FLORENCE]
    What’s going on around me
    Is barely making sense
    I need some explanations fast
    I see my present partner
    In the imperfect tense
    And I don’t see how we can last
    I feel I need a change of cast
    Maybe I’m on nobody’s side
