Another Pro-Labour Newsnight Hire

David Lammy’s ex June Sarpong is Ian Katz’s latest hire at Newsnight, Mandrake reveals. What they didn’t mention is that Sarpong’s Labour connections do not end there. The photo above shows her fronting a Labour election rally in April 2005 alongside Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. The Telegraph at the time reported that the former Channel 4 presenter seemed awe-struck”, fangirling on stage over Labour leaders present and future. Having Labour links on your CV seems to be a prerequisite for a Newsnight job these days…

UPDATE: Sarpong will, according to Newsnight’s Ian Katz, apparently only be an occasional contributor.

So can anyone tell me what we got that was of any benefit when Labour was seated at the top table in the heart of Europe for 13 years?

        I think we are all getting light headed by the great way we have stuck together to ensure the outing of the LibLabCon mafia. We had a thirteen year rule of terror under Blair/Brown- they were determined that any disagreement with their immigration policies would result in their critics losing their livelihoods and being considered racist filth. They taught North Koreaa few lessons.
        Now,thanks to Nigel, we can lift our heads and say without fear what everyone knows to be true. This is a small island and we cannot take any more immigrants. To think that within 30years the white population will be outnumbered by africans and asians makes me weep not for myself, I won’t be around to see it, but for those who have lost their birthright. The people to blame are the politicians and they must take responsibilty for the problems which now lie ahead.

        Shaggy dog story time.

        These three American guys went out duck hunting in winter with their guns, a brand new SUV bought on credit, a faithful labrador retriever and some dynamite; the dynamite being for the purpose of blowing a hole in the ice so that there was clear water for the ducks to land on and get shot.

        Hunter lights fuse throws dynamite as far as possible; faithful retriever runs off and brings fizzing stick back to drop at master’s feet.

        All three go berserk shouting at dog, then shooting at it, so the dog hides under the SUV with the dynamite in its mouth.

        Loud bang; exit faithful hound and brand new SUV which is blown to bits and drops through the ice.

        The insurance refused to pay which is quite surprising because I don’t think that particular scenario was covered in the policy exclusions.

      When it’s impossible to slip a cigarette paper between the propaganda narratives from ‘right wing’, ‘left wing’, ‘any wing’ MSM mouthpieces, then there is no reason whatever to continue to exclusively privilege a particular one. It is precisely because the BBC has a Charter that it once believed in, with its prescription for impartiality, that it had to be corrupted. The extent of that became visible on 11 Sep 2001, when the BBC prognosticated and announced the collapse of the third WTC building some 20 minutes before it happened.

    Some 201,000 EU citizens immigrated to the UK in the year ending December 2013, a rise on the 158,000 the previous year. The change is “statistically significant”, the Office for National Statistics said.

    Meanwhile, overall net migration – the difference between migrants leaving and arriving in the UK – rose to 212,000 in the period, from 177,000 the previous year.

      “Meanwhile, overall net migration – the difference between migrants leaving and arriving in the UK – rose to 212,000 in the period, from 177,000 the previous year.”

      BBC Daily Politics said at 12:14 “When it comes to net migration, that figure remains static at 212,000″ and that you would expect a rise in Bulgarians and Romanians at a time when the restrictions had been lifted.

      “So everything’s alright, nothing to see here. Now I’m off to spend the weekend at my second home in Henley-on-Thames, away from all the middle-class, middle-aged white people.” — totally in-touch BBC puppet.

      Ok, I read the bit about 201,000 EU immigrants but no mention of the number of non EU immigrants. That should now be minuscule under the effective Tory immigration policy. Shouldn’t it?

      How may third worlders have we let in in the last year?

        It’s all decided behind closed doors, and you don’t even get a vote on those doing the deciding.

        Its important to have unelected people in a position of power who cannot be removed by the electorate because it prevents Europe descending into dictatorship.

        And it prevents war too, as demonstrated by the EU’s successful policy in Ukraine.

    To be fair to the BBC (I don’t know why, because they are not fair to anyone else), the frontpeople for almost all News programmes are getting a bit rickety–Andrew Neil is 63, Gavin Ester is 61, Kirsty Walk is 59 and David Dimbleby was a 124 when he was embalmed. Andrew Marr is a youthful 54, although he talks like an old fart. In seems a natural decision to try to appeal to the young and especially to the young, black, muslim and female viewer who couldn’t give a toss about politics or hard news and would rather watch “Gogglebox” or “Slap-my-bitch-up”.
    There is a precedent for this, when “Top-of-the-Pops” was launched its target audience was 12-18 year olds, but when Pan’s People were recruited, 85% of the audience became men over 40.
