UKIP Try to Play Down LBC Train Wreck

Following his on air intervention this morning UKIP spinner Patrick O’Flynn gets in touch to tell Guido he had “no concerns about the interview apart from it was a bit banal”. Asked why he intervened the former Express hack said “We had agreed 11.45, Nigel stretched that to 11.50. I had to tell them to wind it up six times because we needed to be somewhere else. Frankly, we had someone much more important for him to see.” He wouldn’t say who that was though, and is putting a brave face on it all. “The vast majority of LBC listeners are pro-Nigel, but that could have gone on and on all day.” Crikey, just imagine what Nigel might have said had it run on….

            Anonymous is truly “special.” He writes so many posts he loses track of his own opinions, regularly contradicting himself in the process. You are spot on, FFS, to point out his latest grammatical blooper. “Reign” is what HM The Queen does. “Rein” is the guidance system for a horse. It’s time for another period of detention for Anonymous, who really does need to take a break from his incessant, compulsive postings.

        vile labour ruined my country says:

        In a depressing way it’s almost impressive how the media and main parties control the narrative and can even control once-indepedent voices such as Guido.

        They get LBC to give a deeply unpleasant and unprofessional and vindictive interview (it must be said Farage acquitted himself very well, the interviewer was so rude he should have walked out much earlier – when was the last time a major party leader was attacked in such personalised terms, involving his wife etc) – so get an interviewer to provoke him and despite Farage not falling for it they then have Guido, Dan Hodges, the Guardian etc all ready to go with articles, videos, links everything ready in place (carefully avoiding giving full quote and context etc) and they all co-ordinated it simultaneously.

        In recent weeks it has backfired every single time, every supposed outrageous shocker etc only increased UKIP support and perhaps the country has seen through it but who knows, the mainstream (which sad to say very much includes Guido no – he has openly taken the Murdoch shilling) will keep trying until the end. Expect more of this nonsense.

        The only sensible response is to donate a tenner to UKIP or to try to talk more friends into voting for them.

          Bob - a broadcasting professional says:

          O’Brien’s interviewing technique – asking a question then shouting down the answer with either some inane, irrelevant comment or with the next question – is a hectoring method taught both by the “Common Purpose” media skills training course, and by the Scientologists.

          It works best if the interviewee is trying to give a complicated answer, and with frequent practice can make the interviewer sound like he knows what he’s talking about ind the interviewee sound as if he’s dissembling. Any analysis of the actual content will reveal that the interviewer really knows little or nothing, but is determined to trample over any interviewee to push forward a personal agenda.

          O’Brien obviously has some kind of political axe to grind – it’d be interesting to find out who fills his brown envelopes – and the man is a disgrace to the broadcasting profession.

            Yes, this is a common technique at the BBC. They only try it with the less powerful. Humphries is a master of it. I suspect the answer is not to try to over-ride the interviewer but to stop speaking when he or she interrupts and then say “No, after you.” when the arsehole finishes.

            It’s definitely get Nigel Week.

            I was at a Conference in Dallas a few years back with some buddies, and one afternoon we just walked in off the street to a gun club, where, on production of nothing more than Driving Licence ID, they rented us Heckler & Koch MP5s for $30 an hour, and 9mm ammo at $10 a box. We spent a pleasant afternoon spraying bullets round an indoor range.
            They had standard human silhouette paper targets, or, for a few bucks extra, you could buy a target with a photo of Mackaulay Culkin being kidnapped at gunpoint by some Mexican, and you had to shoot the Mexican without hitting MC.
            First round went straight through MC’s forehead…

    A LATVIAN psychiatric patient who tried to r@pe a 23-year-old student should never have been allowed into Britain. Rolands Brize should have been stopped at the border and sent home because records showed he had a conviction for arson.

    The victim, now 24, spoke out after Brize was branded a danger to women and given a life sentence yesterday. She was attacked as she walked home from a night out in Hull in March last year and dragged under a bridge. The court case has cost an estimated £50,000 and with Brize being ordered to serve his sentence in a secure hospital it is thought the cost of his incarceration to the British taxpayer could be as high as £200,000 a year. That is five times the £40,000 annual cost of keeping a prisoner in jail.

LBC thought it had the perfect plan to sabotage UKIPs rise in the polls, thought that a perfectly coordinated smear attack would work.

          the Labour IngSoc party depend on maintaining a large underclass to ensure there is enough hate to be directed at the affluent and productive and ensure their vote.
          if the poor, disabled, and unemployed become prosperous, then the party ceases to have a reason to exist – and that is the gravest thoughtcrime.
          the evidence for this is that the poorest urban areas have voted Labour IngSoc for decades, and have never been permitted to prosper. Labours needs the underclass.


          • Anonymous says:

            But does not big business needs an underclass as a pool of cheap labour and to keep wages down? And do they nor need to maintain the false promise that there is Room At The Top-table to keep the ‘lower-orders’ in the rat race? And do not the Tories help keep their big business mates happy – by keeping the underclass down?

            For all class-aware people understand what is in their interests and vote accordingly.

    So when did Guido become an advocate of the EU? He must be, right? Afterall, he just adores One Term Dave <3 knowing full well that Cameron will never deliver on his promiise of a referendum, and even if he did (which he wont) he know full well that Cameron will campaign to STAY IN the EU!

    So the only assusmption one can make is that Guido, like Cameron, Clegg and Miliband is quite happy for us to remain with the cesspit of corruption that is the EU. Well done, Guido. You must be so proud. Now go and collect your 'payment' from the other establishmnet shills.

    PS.. Can't wait till next Friday when we see a defeated Cameron standing outside Downing Street holding back the tears, telling us how he 'gets it' and will 'listen' but not really meaning a single word. But it will be comedy gold. He, Guido and the MSM all licking their wounds, until they go comepletely OTT next year.

    Sobering stuff says:

    It’s worth comparing the views of two vastly experienced political pundits, providing measured opinion, with the antics of the Guido Kids and much of the MSM —

    Norman Tebbit (today):

    “As we approach polling day in the European election the efforts to discredit and smear Nigel Farage and Ukip approach a hysterical crescendo. There is, however, regrettably little attempt to deal with the issues which are raised by Mr Farage.”

    Then, Lord Ashcroft (April 30):

    “The vast majority of UKIP supporters are decent people. Smearing UKIP as a racist party by the establishment parties does them no credit.”

    And, Lord Ashcroft (April 23):

    “The more political interviewers, seemingly to enhance their own reputations, ask @Nigel_Farage “cute” questions, @UKIP will gain more votes.”


    • 159
      Sobering stuff says:

      Then, look at it this way, and ask why UKIP critics flail:

      — Brown’s Labour bequeathed more debt than the total borrowed by successive rulers and governments of Britain between 1691 and 1997, the year Labour was last elected (H/T FT Westminister Blog, before Brown was ousted)

      — The Cameron/Clegg coalition will have borrowed more in one term in office than Labour did in the previous 13 years

    Here’s a real train wreck: deliberately driving your country into the buffers of
    a mass immigration multicultural meltdown, of insane population increases and of decreased living standards for the average person as approved by D Cameron, E Miliband and Ghee-Dough.

    Latest story the English proficiency test certificates are readily available at £500 a time. Teresa May has ordered (yet another) urgent inquiry.

        Try Country Cant, Count says:

        That sounds quite plausible to me…70,000 Huguenots and maybe 100,000 Russian Jews. Not many others. A long way to go before you get to 500,000.

        Of course we live in world of jet travel and there will undoubtedly be more immigration than in previous times.

        But the mass immigration policy supported by our political elite is a lunatics’ charter bound to end in complete disaster.

        One thing no one factors in is that the non-immigrant population is very likely going to start moving out in larger numbers over the next couple of decades. Already something like 250,000 people leave the country for good every year.

        We aren’t Japan. There are places English people can go: Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the USA and there are our English “colonies” in South Africa, parts of Spain and the Caribbean. People won’t stick around here as population pressure rises and living standards fall.

        If the outflow rises to say 500,000 and let’s say they are 80% non-immigrant in background, then that will greatly accelerate the cultural changes we see, which in turn will provoke more outflow.

    “No political party in modern history – not even Neil Kinnock’s Labour in 1987 – has come under such sustained attack and misrepresentation. Mr Kinnock at least had The Guardian and the Daily Mirror; Mr Farage cannot boast a single national title, and several papers are running vendettas against him. Mr Kinnock was treated reasonably fairly by the broadcast media. This is not the case with Mr Farage: consider the lacerating contempt shown towards him by Channel 4 News and its chief presenter, Jon Snow. Nick Robinson, the BBC’s political editor, has also abandoned his usual fairness when dealing with the party.” Peter Oborne Telegraph
