Be Seeing Ya, Al Jazeera

return-mehdi

Over the last few months Guido has noticed that Mehdi Hasan, working for Al Jazeera in Washington D.C., has been tweeting more about UK affairs than perhaps a D.C. based presenter for a news channel with global pretensions would be expected. Those speculating as to whether or not he still has a job following the announced closure of Al Jazeera America should bear in mind that he works for the barely watched English language channel rather than the unwatched American channel, so technically a different employer. Which is just as well as all jobs at Al Jazeera America are terminated as of April.

The Qatar-backed channel has had the plug on its losses pulled (estimated to be $2 billion) as energy prices plummet and the Qataris get real. Does this mean Mehdi is coming back to UK shores? Is there perhaps a vacancy at Press TV now Corbyn is no longer hosting shows for Tehran’s propaganda channel? No doubt the prolific twanker will let us know via Twitter…

Quote of the Day

Scruton reflects on Twitter’s vigilantes…

“We in Britain are entering a dangerous social condition in which the direct expression of opinions that conflict – or merely seem to conflict – with a narrow set of orthodoxies is instantly punished by a band of self-appointed vigilantes. We are being cowed into abject conformity around a dubious set of official doctrines and told to adopt a world view that we cannot examine for fear of being publicly humiliated by the censors. This world view might lead to a new and liberated social order; or it might lead to the social and spiritual destruction of our country. How shall we know, if we are too afraid to discuss it?”
