    He must have done OK on QT last night, given the number of times he was interrupted by Dumblebore.

    Fellow panelist, Harman of course wasn’t interrupted at all, despite the fact that the dissembling hypocrite tried to make partisan comments about the way ALL MPs had their expenses dealt with.

    Harman screwed over the Standards Committee (Chaired by one of hers), making a blatantly opportunistic point about Miller’s only having to pay back £5.8k of the original £40k overclaim. Harman would have been briefed beforehand and would have known that the amount repayable had been recalculated and reduced on receipt of further information – something that the independent Commissioner agreed with.

    Harman epitomises the bandwagon jumping, vacuous, opportunist Labour Party at its worst – with no policies and no ideas they’d sell their Granny for a bandwagon.

    And there’s no reason to believe that Dumblebore was unaware of the facts about the recalculation – and being BBC royalty, It wasn’t surprising that he failed to pull Harman up.

    Harman has disfigured British politics for too long. It’s time the hypocrite retired to spend more time in the kitchen (baking PIEs).

    How out of touch can the elite get? says:

    Fraser Nelson writes this of Sajid Javid, the latest government minister. ” a boy raised in poverty”.

    Fraser uses the word poverty because his dad was a bus driver. Now I grew up with a couple of friends who’s Dads worked on the buses and neither did I think they lived in poverty nor did they. All three of us went to Grammar by the way.

    Is this how the London elite see the rest of us who come from normal backgrounds and lead normal lives. Living in poverty?

    A trojan horse surely, as any mus.lim will tell you, they have a higher loyalty than to party or country and that of course, even for ‘normal, rather than extremist types’ is to Islam and a preference for an Islamic state here in Britain.

    Of course vote hungry politicians don’t get it, they think you only have to worry if the chap is a suici.de b.omber!

    It is the dripping tap of the fifth column, feed all school children ha.lal, saves the Musli.ms complaining, move the dates of GCSE and A levels away from Rama.dam because the hungry Mu.slims are a a disadvantage. Let them have a gradual move to sh.aria courts because they are preferred to the tried and tested British system.

    Fraser certainly sounds like he wants to have the guy’s babies. To be fair the man sounds pretty astonishing BUT
    – how would he mend a dysfunctional economy? With more speculative banking? That would be a great idea
    – won’t he just look after his own (i.e. the millionaires, never mind his origins)
    – he venerates the holy Margaret, nuff said

    Eraser Nelson says:

    There are some people who think it is illegitimate to ask why Javid – born a Muslim (accordingly, now an apostate of Islam) and of Pakistani heritage – says he is proud of his Pakistani and Muslim heritage even though he is no longer a Muslim.

    Given that Islam is clear that if you are born a Muslim you must remain one and the Pakistani consitution is clear the whole basis of the state is that it is an Islamic nation, why shouldn’t we query his claim?

    Why would you give up on Islam if you are so proud of it?

    It is rather like someone saying “I’m really proud of Britain’s history and Christianity which is why I have given up going to Church and want to see the Church of England disestablished.”

    It really doesn’t make sense.

    I plead guilty to asking politicians to make at least some sense about their fundamental beliefs. Javid fails at the first hurdle.

  177. 177
    Eraser Nelson says:

    You have to ask does Fraser really believe it or does he just “want” to believe it?

    Someone pointed out on the Spectator website that the Spectator (the heir apparent, James Forsyth) was referring to him as a Muslim, whereas Javid (all credit to him) has made it clear he is not.

    It seems the Spectator agrees with the Mullahs that if you are born a Muslim you must remain one.

    Yeah, the BBC is really unpopular. No one watches or listens to its programmes. Good move.

  182. 182
    Eraser Nelson says:

    Quite. The issue is whether Javid’s apostasy from Islam means he is healthily sceptical about Islam or whether he now feels impelled to appease it. If it’s the former, I have no problem with him being touted as a future leader of this country. But the fact he says he is “proud” of his Islamic heritage leads to legitimate doubts.

    Have a look yourself at his performance on Question Time and ask yourself is this the future Prime Minister touted by Fraser Nelson or just a pretty average and not very persuasive pol. Use your own judgement not the hype of the metro-elite, who have their own particular interests.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b040qq66/Question_Time_10_04_2014/

    I think the only reason the Spectator – who support mass immigration – are now touting this guy so hard is because they are being confronted with the reality of what their policy means for this country (look at Tower Hamlets if you want the reality rather than the artificial Javidmania promoted by Nelson and Forsyth). They are desperate for a poster boy on to whom they can project their fantasies of a happy multicultural 100 million population UK.

    Tesco is a conglomerate of shit says:

    It’s nothing to do with Javid, but today’s Mail has a lengthy piece on a disgusting, fat-arsed, so-called MP from Rochdale called Cyril Smith. The allegations about his perennial child-molesting put him a close second to James Savile. The Mail notes the massive cover-up by the Liberals, before they became the Limp Dums, was aided by a dodgy outfit called The Paedophile Information Exchange. This nauseating bunch included HARRIET HARMAN and her dimwit husband.

    Full marks to The Mail for keeping this story going. They did it with the Stephen Lawrence outrage. Let’s hope there’s more to come on this. It looks bad for David Steel, who was “unavailable for comment” regarding his part in the orchestrated cover-up.

    Tory Loyalists are really making the most of appointing a non-white to a cabinet post, it’s sickening it shows that the the Tories have embraced identity politics in all it’s ugliness. And the Tories will find out that it does not matter one jot as Labour have the minority vote cornered. It does not matter how many non-whites you appoint to senior positions you will not win the majority of votes from their communities. The only thing you can be sure of is you will isolate your core vote. Instead of once again allowing progressives dictate to you, you should be looking to ensure that your majority voters, ie whites, do not become a minority……

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.”
