Faisal Islam Denies He is the New Sky News Political Editor

The line is that no offer has been made to anyone for the Sky News Political Editor job, though Media Guido understands that it is a run off between current Deputy Political Editor Joey Jones and Channel Four’s Economics Editor Faisal Islam. Islam denied this afternoon that he has been offered the job, though speculation is rife in Westminster and telly-land that he is the chosen one. As was noted earlier, betting has been suspended.

        “If someone on the shirt list insists on calling himself Faisal Islam could we not have politically correct balance and shortlist another candidate called Morry Israel ??”

    Oi Guido you fucking Murdoch cock sucker, no fucker outside of the Sky News studios gives a flying monkey fuck about any of this. Stop boring the arse off of us with these endless posts on a job that no one wants at a station that no one takes seriously. Fucking Sky News is about as relevant, useful and cutting edge as GMTV.

      Forcing people to pretend they have an opinion that they don’t really hold by threatening them is fascism lite.

      Most English people just want to live somewhere that feels like England. There’s only one England you see, and it gets smaller by the day.

      If the demographic shifts of the last 40 years happened anywhere else, self righteous little do-gooding drones like Jack Tipple would call it what it is – ethnic cleansing.

      Nice spelling of burdened. Ministry of Repatriation? An internettist says

      I remember this made the news. The flyer is one of several hundred printed up by Colin Jordan’s National Socialist Movement, which had its headquarters in Notting Hill, though Jordan was then based in Coventry. This tiny group achieved publicity out of all proportion to their size.Jordan also disrupted public meetings during the election – one of the newsreel archives has footage of this. Nothing the NSM did was really secret as it had been infiltrated by a mole from the 62 Group.

    No Sky News. You mustn’t pollute your excellent news coverage by the injection of anything from not excellent Ch4 News.

    Well if it’s Faisal Islam, I shan’t bother watching Sky News anymore.

    If only the corporation had thought of this before. So that when the constabulary pulled them over for transgressions, and enquired who was in control? They could all claim non-culpability, from the rear seat.

Lord Glasman tells it like it is:

“The first thing is to acknowledge that Labour has been captured by a kind of aggressive public sector morality which is concerned with the individual and the collective but doesn’t understand relationships.”

Owen Jones says:

We also need Zil lanes.
