Ooer Missis – It’s Carry On Campaigning

Politicians sometimes have train – wreck interviews on live media, especially when campaigning, but in the run up to a General Election which could see her party anihilated, Labour Party home affairs spokeswoman Diane Abbot surpassed all expectations by doing three train – wreck interviews in one day.

First off, with Nick Ferrari of LBC Radio: Ferrari wanted to focus on the completely whacky election promise made by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn that if elected, his party would recruit 10,000 extra police officers , funding the project by reversing cuts to Capital Gains Tax made by the Conservatives:

When Ferrari questioned Labour’s figures, Diane Abbott struggling to explain how the party would fund the policy, started to bluster as she does whenever a question is asked that she cannot answer (Ms. Abbott does a lot of blustering).

The MP initially suggested that Labour would hire 10,000 officers for £300,000, which would would have left officers earning £30 a year.

Ms Abbott’s assessment of how many new officers would be recruited in one year ranged from 25,000 to 250,000.

TRANSCRIPT:
transcript:

Nick Ferrari: So how much would 10,000 police officers cost?

Diane Abbott: Well, if we recruit the 10,000 policemen and women over a four year period, we believe it’ll be about £300,000.

Nick Ferrari: £300,000?

Diane Abbott: Sorry, … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: 10,000 police officers? What are you paying them?

Diane Abbott: No, I mean, sorry … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: How much will they cost.

Diane Abbott: They will cost [long pause], it will cost, erm, about, about £80m.

Nick Ferrari: The £80m is the figure we use. But I don’t understand. If you divide £80m by 10,000, you get 8000.

Diane Abbott: What … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: Is that what you’re going to pay these policemen and women?

Diane Abbott: No, we’re talking about a process over 4 years.

Nick Ferrari: I don’t understand. What is he or she? £80m divided by 10,000 equals £8000. So I don’t, what are these police officers going to be paid?

[papers rustle]

Diane Abbott: We will be paying them the average … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: Has this been thought through?

Diane Abbott: Of course it’s been thought through!

Nick Ferrari: Where are the figures?

Diane Abbott: The figures are that the, the additional cost in year 1 when we anticipate recruiting 250,000 policemen will be £64.3m

Nick Ferrari: 250,000 policemen?

Diane Abbott: And women.

Nick Ferrari: Right. Where…? So you’re getting more than 10,000? You’re recruiting 250,000?

Diane Abbott: No, we are recruiting 2000 and perhaps 250. And the cost … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: Where did 250,000 come from?

Diane Abbott: I think you said that not me.

Nick Ferrari: I can assure you – you said that figure because I wrote it down.

Diane Abbott: What I’m saying about the cost is in year 1 obviously we’re getting ready to recruit, but in year 2 the cost will be £64.3m, in year 3 the cost will be £139.1m, year 4 the cost will be £270m, and year 5 the cost will be £298m, and that can be amply covered by reversing the cuts in capital gains tax.

NEXT UP WAS AN APPEARANCE ON SKY TV’s BREAKFAST SHOW

Before we go into a transcript of the Sky interview, a little background is needed. The Labour Party, folllowing its usual campaign style of offering massive increases in public spending, and evasively mumbling something about taxing the rich when questioned bout how the extra expenditure will be funded, has already promised to spend money raised by reversing recent cuts to Capital Gains Tax (estimated at around £2bn) in a number of different areas including increased education budgets, more funding for arts, and higher welfare benefits.

SKY TRANSCRIPT – key sections

Sarah Jane Mee: Ok, but just going back, you have said that reversing cuts to capital gains tax will help arts funding schools and welfare – will that be in the manifesto fully costed?

Diane Abbott: Our policies will be fully costed, and I have to say I think it suits the Tories not to talk about the loss of 20,000 police officers, not to talk about the rise in violent crime, but to quibble about figures. Our manifesto will be fully costed and what people want to know, they want answers to their worries about the rise in violent crime.

Sarah Jane Mee: Well [the Conservatives] are saying it’s nonsensical because you’ve already spent this money when talking about other pledges – you’ve committed to – the capital gains tax – the money you’ll get from that – that £2bn – to things like schools, welfare and the arts, so you’ve already spent that money – how can you spend it on 10,000 police officers.

Diane Abbott: We’ve not actually committed that money to anything, we’ve used these huge cuts in capital gains tax, cuts which will only help the top 5%, we’ve used them to illustrate the type of places where we could get the money to fund some of our policies, but as we roll out our manifesto, you will see that each policy pledge is specifically costed, and this is a really important issue – the rise in violent crime on our streets.

Sarah Jane Mee: But you’ve made promises – Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell (Labour economic spokesman), have all stood up and said by reversing capital gains tax, we will help tackle these problems.

Diane Abbott: You will find that we haven’t specifically allocated the money. We are rolling out our manifesto, and this morning I am specifically allocating some of the £2.7bn to funding the 10,000 policemen.

One has to wonder what she will allocate it to tomorrow morning.

NOW OVER TO HER FINAL APPEANCE OF THE DAY (we hope) ON INDEPENDENT TELEVISION’S GOOD MORNING BRITAIN.

Having appeared to suggest earlier that policies already announced by Labour may never have been intended for inclusion in the party’s manifesto, or that massive tax increases would be needed to pay for them, in her next appearance abbot tries to back pedal by saying that the party is not promising anything but merely illustrating what they might do if elected. Unkind souls might suggest that if the party does not know what policies it will implement six weekes before an election they are unfit to govern by virtue of being a bunch of clueless incompetents.

GOOD MORNING BRITAIN TRANSCRIPT (key points)
The conversation has been steered by Piers Morgan to the number of times (12 according to his notes) Labour have promised to allocate this increased Capital Gains Tax revenue to specific projects:

Diane Abbott: I know you referenced that we’ve promised it, we’ve pledged it in to other areas – we’ve not pledged it in to other areas. We’ve always used it as an illustration of the type of Tory tax cut we’re going to reverse, but now as we roll out our manifesto, we’re specifically saying how we’re going to pay for the specific items in our manifesto.

Susanna Reid: This is the difference that you’re trying to make between a pledge and an illustration, because all your critics will say in August last year arts funding, Jeremy Corbyn promised money saying that that can be funded through a reversal of reductions in capital gains tax. On schools he would deal with the teacher shortage and rising class sizes by reversing the capital gains tax cut and on welfare John McDonnell, your shadow Chancellor, said that he would use the capital gains tax reversal to reverse the cuts in universal credits. So we’ve got to discount now all of those pledges and stick with this one. Is that the case?

Poldark star: Obsession with topless Aidan Turner is ‘sexist and undermines the show’

BBC’s Poldark costume drama series main female suporting actor Heida Reed has said the national obsession with her co-star Aidan Turner’s well formed torso is reverse sexism. Reed added that she’s a supporter of international movement ‘Free The Nipple’, which sees women baring their breasts on social media to prove that men and women should both be allowed to be walk around topless.

Ross Poldark gets em out for the girls
Ross Poldark gets em out for the girls.

Turner, who plays Ross Poldark and numbers a Vampire named Mitchell (Being Human), a Hobbit (or dwarf perhaps) named Killi (The Desolation of Smaug and The Battle of the Five Armies) and Dante Gabriel Rosetti (Desperate Romantics) among his credits, has attracted millions of viewers to the hit BBC drama every Sunday night and his regular topless appearances on the programme have made headlines.

Icelandic actress Reed, who appears as Elizabeth, the wife of Poldark’s useless cousin said “I think there should be the same standard for both sexes when it comes to things like this.”

Demelza
Well us lads might be all for Poldark’s female characters going topless so long as its Eleanor Tomlinson (Demelza Poldark – left) who gets ’em out for the boys and not the frigid, simpering Elizabeth who has all the sexual allure of cabbage soup.

And FFS don’t mention that women might actually like seeing the body of a physically attractive a male, oh no! Women are just so far above that kind of thing, a puritanical spinster who has never worked in a factory or large office might think. To suggest women might like to look at attractive men and enjoy a little fantasy as much as men like seeing attractive females is unthinkable. Because that could mean women are guilty of sexism and lets face it, sexism is racism!!!.

By the way, how is it, the human race hasn’t become extinct yet? Could it be anything to do with the fact that most of us (the ones whose genes we want to survive anyway) like a bit of totty?

Do these whining, emotionally constipated women ever take a break from their screeching to actually think about what they are saying? “Free the Nipple” campaign is about inequality, apparently. Women should be allowed to walk around topless because men are free to do so – but half naked women on Page 3 of The Sun or in lad mags like Loaded or Nuts are male chauvinist piggism? Appreciation of the male is “reverse sexism” – not being able to get your tits out in church or the supermarket is “gender inequality”. Typical double standards from the hypocritical left.

It’s hard to know whether feminists are surreally stupid, so shallow they’d evaporate on a warm day, or simply so full of hatred for all things male they have lost their reason.

And while they are screeching about ‘equality’ do they ever stop to think that in a truly equal society, lefties would be constrained by their own ‘hate speech’ laws to stop spouting irrational shite like this?

BBC scandal – Breast beating, politically correct broadcaster has links to gangters, banksters and the arms trade
As news leaks out from the inner sanctums of the BBC about cronyism and corruption in the corporations management structure, people are starting to wonder if the Clarkson fiasco was engineered to deflect attention from the way the BBC has been infiltrated by corporate business, and the linked issue of political bias in its news coverage of the election campaign.

Question Time. Time Out for Brand.

I was looking forward to the BBC’s Question Time last night, the big face off between Russell Brand and Nigel Farage it was billed as. Unfortunately it turned out to be as much a non event as those World heavyweight Boxing Championship contests in the 1970s when Muhammed Ali was on his bum o’ the month campaign, with the UKIP leader taking the role of Ali and Brand huffing and puffing a little but fearing to come out of his corner before throwing in the towel at around the halfway mark.
(Nice sustained metaphor Ian, take a bow)

qt2-horz
Brand, audience member who savaged him, Farage, gobby woman who screams ‘racist’.
Pictures shamlessly stolen from BBC Question Time web page under terms of Fair Use

The fact is when Russell Brand decided about a year ago I guess, to revive his flagging career by coming over all political, he was talking like a libertarian (or maybe just channeling Alex Jones or David Icke) but while that grabbed headlines it did not play to Russell’s natural audience who love globalism, big government, immigration, the dissolution of national sovereignty and national cultures and the idea that if we all join hands and sing Kumbaya we’ll turn into fairies and live happily ever after.

Still, despite the destruction of the Brand brand, the show was worth watching, for the man in the audience who excoriated Brand for patronising the disabled, and for the Labout representative on the panel who excoriated him for sexism when he tried to shout down the voluptuous but otherwise uninteresting Conservative, Penny Morduant.

Particularly enjoyable however was the blue-haired, loud mouthed female audience member who raged that Farage was a racist and advised that she was “coming for you Farage, don’t you bl**dy worry.”

I read in a comment thread earlier her name was Penny La Roche, if that is true then she is a professional race baiter who makes her living charging local Anti – Nazi League and Unite Against Fascism groups exorbitant fees for personal appearances at anti – BNP or anti – EDL demonstrations. If that is true it’s sad sad commentary on the mentality of the ANL and UAF that they can’t screech, “Racists, Fascists,” for themselves.

Whoever the woman was, she epitomised the thoughtful, reasonable and liberal face of the modern left.

After a second interruption as she tried to shout down a female audience member and was firmly put in her place by the commenter (“It is not racist to want to stop murderers and rapists coming into our country”) the stewards must have decided she had fretted and strutted her hour upon the stage because she was heard no more.

Our next Prime Minister commented that she was “lovely”. Or maybe he was referring to the extra votes she had just pushed UKIP’s way.

If a man pulled a stunt like this

Watching The Apprentice last night, this weeks task was about negotiating skills. One of the items the apprentices had to get a good deal on was a diamond of certain size and quality.

Dan who is Jewish went to a Jewish diamond dealer, played the Jewish card for all he was worth and bargained the price of a £250 diamond down to £175.

Roisin also had to get a diamond. Roisin also went to a Jewish diamond merchant. Roisin is not Jewish, she’s Irish so no racial aces to play. Roisin got her diamond for £50.

Roisin is pretty,
Roisin is tall and slim
Roisin is a blue eyed blonde
Roisin has big boobs.

Never overestimate the power of tribalism when it’s up against the power of lust. BTW Roisin (below) let her hair down and wore a tight sweater for the task.

Was Downton Dog Killed Because Of Its Name

In last night’s episode of Downton Abbey, Lord Wossizname’s dog was killed off, not violently – we are still a nation of dog lovers after all – but while involved in a three-in-a-bed session with His Lordship and The Countess.

Speculation was rife today that the extremely healthy looking dog was written out of the series because its name was ISIS and this was spreading fear and panic among viewers because that is the name of a middle eastern terror group. Adding credence to this unsubstantiated rumour was the appearance in the episode of The Countess Of Moneypenny (played by Samantha Bond) who had obviously been sent by MI5 to deal with any extremist infiltrators.

You may scoff, but these things must be bought into the public domain (and there’s no interesting news today). And it is not beyond the bounds of possibility as you will see when we show you the story below, concerning Britain’s biggest supermarket.

Comedy And Political Campaigning Do Not Mix

Mock-the-Week-mock-the-week-3201622-480-320-crop
Ageing, fat, bald, ex – standups and a token woman

A stand up comedian of whom I had never heard has managed to grab the kind of attention his comedy has never earned him by having a go at the facile, left wing biased so-called comedy output of the BBC (Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation). All I learned from his rant is that should I ever have the opportunity it is not worth paying good money to see him (far better spending your dosh to see our colleague Janey Godley should she be in your area.

Andrew does have a point however, even if his post was motivated by professional envy rather than frustration with the way ‘ageing, balding, fat men,’ who have forgotten how to be funny but still manage to make a nice living out of us poor TV licence payers by fronting BBC shows that broadcast scripted left wing propaganda which is passed off as comedy(and I include the likes of Eddie Izzard, Lenny Henry, Ben Elton, Stephen Fry, Alan Davies and Vic Reeves along with the quasi-game-show panelists mentioned by Lawrence.)

Look guys, if you can’t be funny, fuck off and open a tea shoppe in Hastings, you smug, precious, self adoring, boring old farts. Comedy isn’t partisan when it goes political, the moment you start attacking one side and giving the other an easy ride you are dead.

Yes UKIP are funny, so are The Conservatives, Labour and The Lib Dems (especially the Lib Dems.) They’re all fair game. Once you take sides you are lost as far as broad comic appeal goes. Oh you”l always get a laugh out of lefties by saying “UKIP are evil racist bastards”, but it isn’t really comedy is it, and if you object to people talking about the paedophile loving Labour Party you are not joking, you are campaigning.

I’m not complaining, every time some fat, smug, self righteous twat on a BBC panel show says “UKIP are crap because they appeal to the working class,” its a few hundred more votes in the bag for the only hope we have of smashing the corrupt, self serving political establishment.

That fine actor Simon Callow summed up what’s wrong with the attitude of the new elitist left, during the debate about gay marriage someone asked him on TV did he object to homophobic remarks in comedy.

His reply was that comedy must not be censored, everything is fair game. He went on to describe himself as a short, fat, balding queer and said all that may be made fun of. It only becomes offensive when people suggest he should be excluded and marginalised for his sexuality.

The left may scream about equality and respecting diversity but until they learn to respect the right of people who disagree with them to express opinions they are never going to win back the working class. Which is a good thing because the bastards hate the working class.

Here is the Facebook rant by Andrew Lawrence that sparked the controversy

Can’t help but notice increasingly, a lot ‘political’ comedians cracking cheap and easy gags about UKIP, to the extent that it’s got hack, boring and lazy very quickly.

Particularly too much moronic, liberal back-slapping on panel shows like Mock The Week where aging, balding, fat men, ethnic comedians and women-posing-as-comedians, sit congratulating themselves on how enlightened they are about the fact that UKIP are ridiculous and pathetic.

Yet the Clacton by-election victory and what looks to be a likely victory in the Rochester by-election goes to show that UKIP have their supporters.

Out of touch, smug, superannuated, overpaid TV comics with their cosy lives in their west-London ivory towers taking a supercilious, moralising tone, pandering to the ever-creeping militant political correctness of the BBC with their frankly surreal diversity targets.

The reason UKIP have resonated with voters is because all the other parties are too spineless to tackle the issue of immigration.

Our elected representatives seeded control of the borders of this country to the EU and it’s been catastrophic for us all, an unmitigated disaster. Nothing works. Public transport infrastructure is dysfunctional. Hospitals and Schools are dysfunctional. The housing crisis continues to blight our economic potential and destroy the hopes and dreams of a generation. The benefits system is totally out of control. All because there are far,far too many people living here.

For every wonderful, welcome skilled worker our open borders bring into this country, there are also benefit tourists and criminals. For every person that comes here and contributes richly to our culture, there are those that refuse to assimilate, which breeds distrust and has led to a fractured, broken society, where people have lost all sense of community.

Can’t say that I’m a UKIP supporter, but I can see why other people are, and I don’t disrespect them for it.

What I don’t respect is lazy comedians, who market themselves as ‘political’ but rather than having the courage of their own convictions jump on the militant liberal bandwagon- which has been the source of so much shit stand-up over the years- so that they can get TV work and line their own pockets.

There is a deeply ingrained militant liberal politics at every level of the BBC, despite the fact that it’s tax-payer funded and supposed to be neutral. It’s a biased organisation and the only sorts of political comedians that are welcome within its corridors are those that reflect it’s values.

Essentially when we’re watching these ‘political’ comedians cracking their piss-poor UKIP gags on the BBC, I think we need to be aware they are neither engaged nor passionate about their subject- but money-grubbing charlatans, toadying up to the militant liberals that pay their wages, mirroring their own beliefs back at them in an act of false flattery so that they’ll feel smug and validated and keep them on the BBC tax-payer funded gravy-train.

I’m not a political comic, my only ambition for my comedy is to make a room full of people laugh. But there are those that disingenuously market themselves as political comics, not out of any genuine conviction, but in an effort to line their own pockets, and I don’t like their hypocrisy.

BBC – National Treasure To Police State Thugs

Yesterday I blogged about the BBC and the nasty, evil suveillance tactics those radib Stalinists are using to track down licence dodger. Now British people will know the Television Licence has become the most pernicious and hated tax levied since Wat Tyler and his lads were forced to take up pitchforks and cudgels and march on London in protest at the poll tax. The switch from being a well loved national treasure happened since the BBC ceased to be a publicly funded television channel whose Royal Charter insisted it be politically impartial and instead became a branch of the Labour Party public relations office.

Apart from a few deluded lefties who would support the internment in gulags mental hospitals of anyone who disagrees with the cultural Marxism agenda and who try to insist the BBC is run by the Conservative Party (left wing paranoia is almost as funny as left wing out-of-touch-with-realityism),everyone knew the BBC had been using police state tactics of lying, threats and imposing draconian punishments on licence dodgers for years. I covered the big lie of the Television Detector Vans and their ‘secret technology’ yesterday.

Serendiptitiously the topic came up in a comment thread on an entirely unrelated article this morning. I have posted an extract from the comments covering the relevant points below, You can see the original article here:

I don’t really know who this Jones his, but if he is famous for appearing on the BBC’s political programmes I wouldn’t. I stopped watching any BBC political programme as the bias is so great to the left I burst a blood vessel in frustration. The sooner the BBC licence fee is scrapped the better.

“Grandad, did they really have magic vans…”

No.

They had dummy vans with false aerials on the roof that they used to con the credulous, and when they finally managed to obtain some that could pick up the scan frequency of the CRT coils they were not particularly accurate and arrived just in time to be thwarted by the new flat panel TVs which didn’t have CRTs.

Only an authority loving, bourgeois middle class leftie could be unaware that the BBC admitted some time back they had been lying about the detector vans and the ‘secret technology’ was a bloke with a clipboard, a biro and a database report printout.
