Islam & Co Show No Go

Adam Boulton’s replacement as Sky News pol ed is Faisal Islam, formerly the Channel 4 News Economics reporter. Faisal will not be doing a re-branded ‘Boulton & Co’ lunchtime political chat, as the name is being dropped.

Bosses were worried that the “Islam & Co” show might confuse viewers…

            The really good jape, is that when the Scots vote “YES!” As a new Country for United Nations’ purposes, they’re going to have to sign up to take almost unlimited emergency numbers of asylum seekers. Imagine Salmond to his Deputy, “where we going to put them, our people don’t do dusky coloured maidens or fuzzy wuzzies who don’t like it up em. Any ideas? Aye Chief we could beam them across to Finland. They’ll think they’re a new strain of Moose. Take years before they realise they been had. Right Jimmy, do it. Blame the Conservatives, it’ll take years before they do anything about it.

      Yes indeed I concur and so what if his business hired a couple of illegals. I’m sick and tired of all these Europeans and there rights. We wouldn’t have to hire so many damn illegals if we could hire the natives on the same conditions. Pay Peanuts get illegals when what I want is a nice native to do my Laundry for less that fuck all an hour…

      Down with Workers rights, unions and Europe!!!

    they are no longer the lone flag carriers for their Guardianista’s

    Lefties reporting only the news they want to report followed by hours of lefties analysing and interpreting that same news is no longer news.
    It is propaganda.

    Zimbabwe white farmers must fight or flee

    Thousands of Zimbabwe’s white farmers must decide by midnight tonight whether to fight President Robert Mugabe’s government and risk jail or to flee lands they have farmed for generations.
    Bringing his programme to reclaim land occupied by white settlers up to 112 years ago to a crescendo, Mugabe has given nearly 3,000 of the country’s 4,500 white farmers a Thursday deadline to hand over their land for occupation by blacks.
    Under a land seizure law, a farmer who defies an eviction order faces a fine and up to two years in prison.
    The farmers are the first major group to face eviction since Mugabe launched his drive to compulsorily acquire white-owned farms for black resettlement two years ago.

      “Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

      This is known as “bad luck.”

    There have been more and more comments on this forum pointing out that Sky news has been moving inexorably leftwards for the past couple of years and their “presenters” – read autocue readers – have become much bolder in showing their lefty bias. Shame as it used to be quite good, but I suppose all things come to an end.

    This latest appointment confirms this trend. I think I’ll have to go back to Aljazeera.

    Wow – (Faisal) F. Islam !!
    Oh Dear. It’s akin to someone being named Roman Catholic or Jehovah Witness or Christian Christianity. What level of lunacy does one have to be or follow to name oneself after a theorised doctrine that someone has clearly just made up and then professed it come from higher up, especially that one that promotes violence. Smacks of the Scientology freaks or the Mormons.
