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

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
