Star Staggers Columnist Leaves For Guardian

20140508-184836.jpg The New Statesman has lost its star political columnist. Rafael Behr is off to the Guardian. He will be replaced as Political Editor by George Eaton, who previously ran the Staggers blog and has close links to Labour. Behr was one of the only reasons for reading the magazine and has been due a step up for a while now. Still, it is yet another blow for the Staggers…

        Typical BBC QT and disgusting behaviour by the BBC and Dumbleby.

        Constant interruptions whenever Nigel spoke, all the other guests would literally shout him down if was about to make another winning point.

        Case in point the last question about AstraZeneca, all other guests allowed to speak at length, but Farage given about 15 seconds and nit even allowed to get out his last couple of words, which were, any decision on the takeover can only be taken by the EU….. And not our government….

        But no one could hear that above the baying disgusting din the legacy LibLabCon created as they shouted Farage down.

        The BBC is a political organisation, it’s actions are an affront to democracy.

        Only today on the R4 today programme, there was 10 minutes devoted to the abducted Nigerian schoolgirls, and you know what, despite saying BokalHaram, in 10 minutes not once, not once did those traitorous left wing elite on the today programme explain the terrorists were Muslim fanatics. The word Muslim or Islam was completely missing, why ?

        The BBC has to be privatised, and not a day to soon. Even Portillio on with Brillo this evening said intellectually he could no longer support the licence fee. The BBC has to change for the better, the licence fee has to go.

    Enjoyed your comment earlier today on the psychological practicalities of New Speak together with the syntactical implications. The semiosis of Charles Sanders Peirce, his interpretants and the power they can wield is a battleground that few get close to appreciating. Meanwhile the effect, as you point out, is huge. The potential for misuse is also considerable.

    Am just glad you did not misread that earlier remark as being anything else either – not that I would expect you to, but those whose critical functions have been worn down by PC dogma may have.

    Symbols are well known to be the most powerful communication tools available for stimulating desired responses. The P’avlovian response that the S’wastika elicits is a classic recent example which is finally losing some of its potency.

    However, it was when reflecting on word banning that I noticed there was another and more pernicious form of this going on.

    The problem for propagandists who wish to make use of symbolism is ensuring that people see the symbol, hence receive the message or the command, clearly, and react accordingly.

    By associating certain words with intensely negative feelings, more through negative peer pressure than personal belief or view, and then banning them, the word takes on a very abstract symbolic quality as it becomes silenced.

    This gives the word a symbol quality.

    When invoked indirectly it is produced clearly directly in the mind of the target individual, with a strong P’avlovian emotional reaction. That is by the way, the real power.

    The mind control folk out there are somewhat discredited, but political correctness has programmed a very selective response in some sections of the masses to certain symbols. A way to break this programming down is through controlled desensitization.

    Hence, more frequent neutral references to the N-Word, adjusting up to the actual word, and then normality – where it falls into non-enforced general disuse needs to be done.

    The m’od bot on this site is unwittingly an agent of this type of selective programming – not that I criticize the editorial position of the owner.

    There are too many lawyers, every fucking where – the standard of 5hit that is them that come from law school is pathetic – and one only has to point to the insurance underwriters pouring millions into the trousers of Barristers forlornly attempting to ‘face off’ claims growing by the day for the gross negligence of their lawyers who have been erring year after year – where any ‘reasonable man’ of some knowledge of the laws could only come to the logical conclusion of gross negligence … mind you an incontrovertible paper trail – does come in handy.

        And only an utter fool would believe he’ll deliver a referendum in 2017 even if it within his gift to do so by then. It’ll be the Lisbon Treaty all over again. When we said ‘referendum on Europe’ we were talking about the situation in 2014. Things are so much more different now, Iceland has joined (or something), so it’s not the same Europe at all so there’s really no point having a referendum. Because it’s just a totally different question/situation now.

        Personally I’m not that fussed one way or the other by Europe. It seems politicians, as a species, have ambition in inverse proportion to their competence. It makes little odds who is fucking up your life. Brussels or Westminster. They both seem utterly incompetent beyond feathering their own nests.

Mission creep starts small but has a way like the acorn of turning into something a helluva lot bigger. You only have to look at the free trade area that we joined which has morphed into a full blown takeover of many of this country’s institutions. We cannot even deport foreign criminals and terrorists without European courts giving the nod FFS.
            If certain sections of the community want halal let them have it but I personally do not want meat on my table that’s come from a poor dumb animal that’s had it’s throat barbarically slit and a foreign prayer said over it just to make the supermarkets a few quid richer by not labelling it.

        To answer seriously – Yes – provided it is seafood which can be considered kosher – eg. Sardines.

        Fish – with fins / scales – is considered pareve by J’wish folk, which is one of the four genders.

        Fish, because it is hunted through the act of fishing, is automatically Halal without the ritual. !slamic people have fewer restrictions than J’wish folk with respect to seafood.

        One needs to be careful with the kosher term. When applied to food it should really be stated that the food has been koshered, which is where meat is treated with koshering salt to drain the blood.

        Whilst Halal meat has to be slaughtered using the Dhabihah method, and meat for J’wish folk must be dispatched using the shechitah method, there are much bigger restrictions against consumption of blood for J’s which is where the koshering practice and common term kosher comes into play.

        Another important difference is that J’s require the sciatic nerve and adjoining tissue to be removed from their meat.

        The key difference between the slaughter methods from a faith point of view is that Dhabihah requires a prayer to Allah to be made before the throat is cut. There is no such requirement for J’s.

        From the animals point of view, both methods of dispatch are painless, fast, and despite being graphic are actually the most humane.

        Labelling food as ‘Kosher’ is very important for J’ish due to the additional dietary restrictions – such as the rules relating to time between consumption of foods containing meat and dairy, as is indicating if meat in question has been through the koshering process.

        H’alal is very important for m’uzzies in order to be certain that the meat was slaughtered following their method – particularly the detail on the prayer being said before dispatch.

        Personally, I would prefer such foods to be labelled clearly so as a consumer I can make informed purchases.

    The arguments put forward pro-immigration on QT – most on the panel conflating non-EU with EU:

    i) Not enough Brits doing science courses, so Universities would have to close down.

    ii) NHS is dependent on staff

    iii) Hotels / Catering staff

    Counter arguments (not given):

    i) Why are there not enough Brits doing science courses in the UK ? Either too much supply, or serious problems in education with Brits which means the demand is too low domestically.

    Shirley Williams did not mention that UK universities use higher fee paying non-EU students to subsidize local students. But arguing that more science students are needed because there are not enough British is false.

    ii) NHS should be employing UK staff first as it is a UK institution. It is only employing immigrants as they are cheaper and to save the local cost of training staff.

    This is not a good situation, and has the effect of depriving foreign countries of medical staff. It is also not a good dependency for the NHS as with changes in the US the best foreign medical staff are more likely to go to the US. This could explain why the quality of NHS staff has been going down.

    iii) Hotels / Catering staff – those low paying jobs are being denied to British people by immigrants now. The argument that British people will not do those jobs is deeply offensive to those local people who may be looking for work at present.

If you’re really as clever as you say you are and that you just fancied doing a hobby degree then why not use that giant brain to be of some use to your country and do a proper degree instead.

      I’d like to have done a degree in Fucking (Female) Models but I don’t think the taxpayer should be subsidising it and neither should they be subsidising hobby shit like History, Geography, English or PPE. If the UK needs scientists and doctors and nurses then get the hobby degree-ists to pay for it.

      And in any case, it’s still a load of shit. The NHS ‘only’ employs 1 million people so why did we need to import 2 million people from Sh*it*is*tan just to get a few hundred people with medical degrees who can’t speak a word of English?

      Would it not have been a lot fucking cheaper to open another few medical schools in the UK?

        State provided health care relies on unrealistically cheap mass labour which has been medically trained.

        If government has not set policy about a generation in advance to produce enough medical staff – a complex set of policies which would be expensive – then it will need to import.

        If the UK did produce enough good quality staff to be self sufficient, one would probably find that many of those staff would migrate to work elsewhere where the money / work conditions were better – for example the US.

In November 2009 (6 months BEFORE the election), Cameron took a front page out in the Sun to say why he could no longer give a referendum.

        Cameron made a world of mistakes in opposition but I don’t buy into the story that people believed he would hold a referendum on a treaty that had already been ratified by the Imbecile.

        On that one at least he is off the hook as far as I’m concerned.

        My disappointment stems from him agreeing, just as the wheels finally came off the Maximum Imbecile’s borrow and squander illusion of an economy, to match the Imbecile’s spending plans. Ten years Tory leaders and shadow chancellors had been warning that the Imbecile was pissing away money he didn’t have and just as the proof arrives – Cameron agrees to match his lunatic spending.

        Imagine in the 2010 election being able to say ‘I told you so’ instead of having to go along with the ‘It all started in America…’ shit that Brown manufactured.

        Then, to pile idiocy upon idiocy – when he was well ahead in a two horse race he agreed to a TV debate with the Imbecile. And invited Clegg along for good measure. Blair was running rings around Major in 1997 but he told Major to fuck off about a TV debate. Why? Because you just never know. Better to stick to the choreographed (bussed in) ‘spontaneous crowd scenes that had worked so well so far.

        For somebody with a First class degree in PPE from one of the world’s finest universities and a background in PR he really is remarkably shit at Politics, Economics and PR.

            The notion this is staged could be true.

            The story about mothers being arrested after trying to meet with the president’s wife seems more designed to cloud critical thinking and provoke an emotional response.

            The government of N’igeria will know if this was true. It is incredible to suggest that that government would have sat by idly.

            The implication is that even though the children have apparently been kidnapped by some new !slamic militant sex slave trade outfit, the government of N’igeria are equally uncaring and by implication evil, borderline complicit.

            The truth is likely somewhere in between, assuming this is not fiction.

            If 200 – 300 teenage girls are captured with intent to sell, the simple questions to ask are these:

            i) Where are they keeping them ?
            ii) How are they being secured and fed ?

            Regarding the girls as PoW’s – keeping that many people incarcerated and healthy (they want to sell them) requires infrastructure. That should make them easy to trace.

            iii) If they are trying to sell them illegally why advertise the fact ?
            iv) Is the demand for that many girls from one country actually present ?

            v) Why have the locals not tried to stop the kidnappers, or deal with this themselves ?

            That the capture is apparently successful absent major casualties among the locals suggests collusion. N’igerian villagers are not averse to self defence.

            It is incredible to suggest that none of those in the families involved would have not tried to reclaim their children.

            Gordon Brown’s specific involvement here is highly suspect.

            He is itching to push his educate girls UN agenda at any cost, and is well known for involvement in missing girl scams for political gain. eg. The M’ccann case.

            There is credibility to the notion that this is a bold scam.

            As such it certainly does not warrant military intervention or even the discussion of. The nature of the questions and statements being asked the HoC is also highly dubious, given the apparent lack of intel.

      To right Mark, the left must always have the last say on any BBC current affairs program. It’s the right thing to do with a uniquely funded bloated organisation.

      For years on here I have been waxing on about how the left’s dissemination of ‘approved’ opinion will crumble, and the backlash will be delicious.

      We are seeing it happen now. Dimbleby actually verged on being deferential to Farage tonight; the commentariat are not completely stupid, they want to be on the ‘winning’ side and are terrified of being out in the cold when the left’s choke hold on the popular narrative is finally smashed into lovely smithereens.

        The previous narrative was smashed when the credit crunch hit, finally broken when the Brown was thrown out of office. To be honest I think it really went sometime in 2006 around the time it became clear that !raq was fucked and Bla!r stepped down.

        The commentariat have been keeping the narrative going perhaps to maintain a semblance of status quo for the masses and allow the transition you speak of to proceed in an orderly fashion.

        Undoing the machinery of political correctness, especially in a country that has been destabilized by mass immigration and economic mismanagement, is a very delicate operation.

        The final shreds of consensus holding the previous patterns of thought together are breaking now. Am thinking that the expenses scandal and Savile revelations have catalysed this process somewhat.

        Comparing a comment thread on this blog from two years ago vs. now will demonstrate some of this.

        Comparing a QT broadcast two years ago compared to what was broadcast tonight will really show just how much things have changed.

        The moniker ‘Right Full Rudder’ which is used here was prophetic and is accurate.
