LISTEN: Austin Mitchell’s LBC ‘Saying Rape is Fine’ Meltdown

Labour claimed that Austin Mitchell had apologised to the Chief Whip:

“I looked through my list of incoming phone-calls, calls too from Conservative MPs demanding I apologise, but frankly I didn’t get them. Does anyone who has said anything critical on twitter have to apologise? I’m not going to say sorry, that would be silly, because I am not sorry. I don’t see a reason for the row frankly.”

He also went off on one about the use of the word rape saying the row was a “storm in a teacup”:

“I wanted to warn the government that AstraZeneca is going to be badly damaged if this take over goes through.”

I think it’s a word that is used in other contexts too and I think this row is frankly artificial… I think the storm is really a very defensive one by people who don’t like the takeover but dont think they can stop it so therefore they would rather turn the heat on something else.

I don’t think I am [trivialising rape] I think perhaps I am exaggerating the threat to the company, but it is a threat.”

Labour have reiterated tonight that Mitchell has apologised to the Chief Whip. We report, you decide.

UPDATE: Ed Balls has hardly helped things, saying that what Mitchell said was “stupid” and that he should apologise but defended him as “a character”:

        My experience is that Google’s distributed nature is not as universally true as some profess.

        There have been times when I have been searching for something I know exists and have very tight search criteria for (I tend to run on “.co.uk” out of habit from my pre-2007 exit.) However, it fails to find the item.

        I change to another country code e.g. “.ru” and find it straight away. That has not happened recently but there seemed to be a spate of it a few years back. It may mean nothing…

          There is quite heavy internet censorship in the UK now – which is what you are seeing.

          Initiating the search from UK servers is the problem you see. The data will still be on UK based Google servers. What the ECJ ruling, if it is turned into law, is that Google will be compelled to remove the data it holds on servers within the jurisdiction.

          That will not stop the data from being replicated out of jurisdiction, but the possible impacts for the spider side of Google could be profound if laws prevent the caching of certain information period on servers within the jurisdiction irrespective of if it can be accessed from searches initiated there.

          Now, that latter point is going down the path of rightful concern which you were raising and would have very profound implications as it would be legislating for what parts of the internet can and cannot be indexed by the search engines. That is chilling.

            TOR isn’t really worth it for these types of searches. I am talking about the surface level stuff that has been made tricky to find or outright blocked in the UK.

            From a SIGINT perspective, seeing as there are two endpoints to communication on the net, anonymity will never be fully achieved as it will be possible to determine those endpoints if there is reason to.

            That incidentally defeats encryption as well: knowing those end points allows a fair guess at what the content of the communication is likely to be about.

            Knowing that, it is clear that attempts to hide tracks through elaborate VPN tunnelling etc. is a bit of a wasted effort.

            Something on the TOR scale not being infiltrated or indeed set up by the intelligence community is incredible. Coercing traffic which would be of interest onto that network makes surveillance easier and eases the resources required to monitor the majority legit stuff on the rest of the net.

            There is nothing really subversive about the desire to access information which has been illegitimately blocked in one jurisdiction but is still publicly available in others, provided the content downloaded is not illegal.

            What the person who downloaded that material does with it next is their responsibility.

            Blocking content for purely political reasons would constitute an illegitimate case, and one which would likely stimulate those who access such material to use it for subversive political reasons.

            Saw what you said about information commissioners earlier.

            The EU has had an objective to remove freedom of all print media for a while now, and it is bent on doing this for the internet as well. Information commissioners will be part of that machinery.

            There will be a political bias which is the central problem of media regulation. The ECJ ruling and its possible legislative implications seem to be pointing towards defacto regulation of internet content across the Eurozone. Managing what can be found and what can be posted is sufficient power to satisfy that desire.

            Reducing the ‘memory’ of the internet – as per the actual case – serves the dual purpose of helping to restore the old propaganda models which rely on the general public having limited access to historical news reports, media content and general information. The extension of that general awareness from 3 months to 30 years or so has led to the historical investigations ongoing in the UK for example. It is causing problems for the EU as people start to become aware of old lies.

            Not arguing against the historical investigations, but without the net and easy access to information, public opinion would not have developed to the point that authorities had to respond with a proper deep clean. This has defeated even the post-Savile cover up attempts also. A good development for the general public, but catastrophic for those trying to cling onto their credibility and positions of authority under the old contract.

            It is unnecessary to do this as the internet generally does forget as content servers go offline. (Ignoring the web archives of course…) Selectively airbrushing history whilst arguably good in some cases is far worst overall. The key is, what is in the Public interest.

            On the basis of the ECJ ruling, the likes of Max Cl!fford for example could request old news archives of his wrongdoings to be removed from G’oogle search, at some time in the future. That would overwhelmingly not be in the public interest.

            Best to leave the search engines alone, and educate society to be more responsible in how information is regarded. But if they do press ahead it is not a big problem, but Europe will lose out.

    It lays bare the immaturity of this little set piece, and perhaps raises more questions about what Cameron is trying to conceal, than what Miliband is.

      It doesn’t matter how much guido and the feminists might whinge the word r.a.p.e. has two meanings:

      “an act of plunder, violent seizure, or abuse; despoliation; violation: the r.a.p.e. of the countryside.”

      In terms of language this man is perfectly within his rights to use the English properly whatever the thought police think.

        The word has one meaning – it is then used as an analogy in other contexts.

        This is what happens when you start banning words.

        Bring back freedom of speech for all – the only thing that should be banned is incitement to violence.

          Incitement means tricking (lying) or coercing (threatening) someone to commit violence.

          Suggesting that someone commits violence is not incitement – if it did then no-one would have to take responsibility for their decision not to ignore the suggestion.

          Unsurprisingly, lefty fascists seem to think that suggesting that they themselves should be violently resisted is somehow incitement, when it isn’t.

          After all – it definitely isn’t when they (e.g.: UAF) do it.

          Agree with your point above and thanks for singling out my earlier comment. I should have explained in a bit more detail as I did not intend my comment in the way you interpreted it. It was meant purely as a precis of how to handle the PR.

          I apologize for poor expression if my comment has been mis-interpreted. Allow me to clarify.

          To take the wind from the sails of indignation which the media are fanning, A’ustin can apologize for offence caused. This time only because the word may have caused shock to the listener / reader. This should also de-escalate the media response.

          A’ustin standing his ground may have the same effect but with higher risk of an escalation.

          Explaining the context and intended meaning of the word would educate the audience. Once indignation has been settled by the ‘apology’, that important message can be delivered and would be received.

          Admission of any liability – an apology for the use of the word, or what others may have mis-heard being said is a no-go. That does not defuse the indignation of the audience but only serves to reinforce it. This is why the media were trying to coerce A’ustin to do that, and one reason why A’ustin did not.

          Most of the public know what the score really is, and have had enough of this style of agitprop as it is clear to the majority now what is going on. Some may take offence, and lowering that guard gently is important as offended people are generally not receptive.

          The right to offend should remain universal, but once offended people generally ignore the source of offence and move on. For a politician it is not a good policy.

          Causing offence should not be regarded as a criminal issue: There are already societal norms and civil law which can handle the problem cases that arise from time to time.

    @CO

    What is your view of the Liberal Arts Colleges, as widely evidenced in the USA, also around the world but not to such a great extent in the UK? (UCL, King’s London, Birmingham, Kent and Queen’s Belfast that I know of. I have been to all these and met very impressive people teaching and studying there.) I also have good friends teaching at Erasmus in NL.

    The very word “Liberal” may mislead some here, I think. There is a true meaning of it which is noble and which has been sullied by the political party bearing it as part of its name. They are neither liberal nor democratic. The word “Arts” is possibly subject to misinterpretation too.

    However, I do not know how our institutions compare with their ostensible equivalents in the USA and suspect they are somewhat different. Wesleyan strikes me as interesting, particularly with its heavy slant to sciences and maths. I am particularly attracted by Michael Roth’s dedication to academic freedom and his attack last year on the “phoney progressivism” of the proposed boycott of Israeli academic institutions that was being proposed by some. One might note his background…

    The ability to differentiate between institutions and their countries is important, if one is to avoid bigotry.

    But I am interested in your account of the grouping over there.

        My experience of American concerns over the decades has been that they will always chose the most profitable course and emotion does not come into it.

        The problem in the UK is that we are great inventors, that is why we are good at R&D, but lousy entrepreneurs (in the main part). If the business is that good then, with all that lolly from AstraZeneca, one could set up a competitor company, filch all the experience and clean up*.

        But, oh no! It is much easier to sit back in our armchairs and complain. The government ought to do something about it!

        * When I say this, I am not theorising. I did it back in the 80s. Swiped massive amounts of business from the competition, worked on an overhead that crucified them (by introducing computer systems and comms) and a number of them had to shut down. Before they did shut down, we were making huge profit %ages compared with theirs so were unassailable. That is what business is about.

    Hard to admit sharing any views with Socialists and Marxists….
    However I am forced to concur with the RH plonker that the Government should cut off their Goolies.

      The 40% listed as “dont know” would have voted for Nigel Farage.

      Its clear that if Farage had been included in the list it would have been very different indeed.

      You can imagine the person saying Farage and the pollster putting that response down as a dont know.

    NIck Clegg is telling lies on Radio 4 this morning. Anyone would think there is an election going on.

      He doesn’t need an election to tell lies, he just needs to be on tv, his little lie about the EU having no military was his biggest and telling lie.

    A headline in the Lebanese Press. “The two main voters in the upcoming Presidential Election are Iran and Saudi Arabia.”

    If the EUSSR has its way the two main voters in the next UK election might well be Barroso and Merkel.

    hoping to take the plunge before long and buy a steam shower
    cabin, in all likelihood after the holidays

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
