Silence is Golden

Well, it's finally kicking off. After years of Leveson Inquiries and the destruction of any kind of investigative journalism in this country, Miliband has decided to rise to the rather delicious bait laid out by the Daily Mail just one week before "Press Regulation" is discussed in Parliament.

As regulars will know, I'm no friend of the Daily Mail, having been on the receiving end of it recently but I will fight to the death for a free press in this country. If you want to read salacious drivel, as far as I am concerned, no one should have the right to impose that you cannot. Without a free press, we may as well all resign ourselves to being ruled by the famously unelected liar and bully Alistair Campbell, who yesterday set out to destroy Paul Dacre of the Mail in a very public raising of pitchforks. Publishing his home address on twitter was the final straw. I would kindly remind the dry alcoholic nutcase that he is neither elected nor representative of anyone but his own twisted soul, and I refuse to acknowledge any influence he may feel he has over anyone.

The very basis of this public spat is fundamental to what type of country we will end up living in. As Guido Fawkes once said on TV "if you don't want to end up on the front page, don't pay hookers to stick dildos up your arse". He's right. Whether we like it or not, a free press held MPs to account over their expenses, their corruption, their thievery, their bullying and their illegal wars. No wonder the Left are so keen to silence them.

I'm tired of those of the vile Political classes who choose to take offense, and then casually vote to bomb brown children in their thousands with drones. I tired of the professional politicians claiming to be just like you and I. They aren't. They are psychotic power hungry bastards who will stop at nothing in their urge to control every aspect of our lives whilst bloating themselves on stolen wealth. Twitter and social media is currently being used to induce us into their devious little world and what was once quietly spoken about over a scotch or 7 in a Parliament bar is now being shouted across the Internet for all to hear. We are beginning to see the inner workings of the putrid machine that rules us with a rod of iron, sends pitch fork waving twitter mobs to kill the heretics whilst scratching each others backs for mutual advantage.

Freedom of speech is gone, the freedom to privacy is gone and without a shadow of a doubt, the freedom of the press is next. Be very careful what you wish for, Dear Labour Grandees, you might just get it.

UPDATE :War is breaking out. Peter Oborne of the Telegraph has just agreed to publish the smear campaigns of Alistair Campbell. The entire political class is taking lumps out of each other. Fucking delicious.

You say "Free Press" I say "Shit-Rag mouthpieces of the billionaire owner". Politicians & Press will frequently court each other when it suits and stab each other when it doesn't. Neither have our interests in mind.

Schrödinger's cat 3 October 2013 at 18:02  

A Free Press can never really be free whilst the state effectively holds control over the biggest TV broadcaster, which is run like a thirteenth century empire (think Marco Polo time).

Okay. Let's let a few billionaires run all the tv news channels, radio, printed news press etc... it's all fine and dandy AS YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY IT... Until the owners decide it's people like YOU they don't like. geddit yet?

oh.. and to be prosecuted for watching a tv without a licence you have have to admit to a civilian at your doorstep you were watching a tv without a licence AND THEN SIGN A STATEMENT FORM TO CONFIRM IT.

Only idiots get prosecuted for it.

Write to TVLA and state that you withdrawn their common law right of access to your property, and that as there is no contract between you and Capita (TVLA), you expect no further correspondence other than acknowledgement of your letter.

End of.

Dear OH, I am so glad to see you back after biting the bullet. They will not leave you alone. I was with my Cousin today and we were discussing this issue. To be honest I have lived on and off overseas for over thirty years, and came back here for a quiet life. It was a very good post, and I do feel that it is a case of first they came for the NOW now they are going for the Mail, but it seems to me that the Mail, are up for the fight.

I do not like Miliband, my gut feeling is that he is a snide, very untrustworthy, I would really like exposure on him to the extent that Cameron has had, who is he? who is his family? what is their background? how did they make so much money? He accused, such as my family of sitting under an Oak Tree for five hundred years, we go back over a thousand. Where does he sit?

Alex,  3 October 2013 at 21:42  

Can someone provide me with any explanation as to why Campbell published Dacre's home address beyond the obvious, i.e. an attempt to incite people into turning up on his doorstep to either verbally or physically abuse him.

Dacre's a nasty bastard, but that doesn't change the fact that Plod should be investigating Campbell.

Very interesting point about Twitter, and its encouragement to Groupthink (if that's the right term - I haven't re-read 1984, the novel, for some years).

Blue Eyes,  4 October 2013 at 00:10  

This is just Labour and the left taking an opportunity to attack the Daily Mail. Most of the left are quite psychotically obsessed with it. (I think it stands in nicely for whoever used to beat them up at school). It's pretty obvious the story did not originate with the Mail, but came from Lynton Crosby and Tory HQ, as did the similar smears on Nigel Farage the other week about his schoolboy days (which he, unlike Miliband, kept in perspective). This is going to be the Tory line from now till 2015. Labour are closet Commies, UKIP are bar-room fascists, so vote for us, the sensible ones. And when we get in, we'll make the EU turn into something it isn't, just for our convenience.

The Daily Mail is for thick Mongs, just like the other Tabloids. And I'm no "leftie".
Anyway, only thick Mongs think in terms of left and right because they are too thick to think in terms of right and wrong.

The BBC is giving huge coverage to their man's defence of his Marxist dad. Funniest part of it all was Campbell's 'outrage' at the Mail. Priceless hypocrisy.

Popeye - There are only two 'laws' - Do no harm, and cause no loss. All the rest are useless acts of parliament which I do not consent to, so they don't apply.

Incidentally, I challenge you to find any act of parliament which states that a TV licence must be paid. Look up the definition of a TV receiver in the Communications Act, it will surprise you.

TVL is just a scam.

You're talking shit mate. You've talked yourself into a circle.

While I hate to bring Nazi's and Jews in to any argument there is a reasonably pertinent point here. By your argument the Jews living in Germany in the 30's didn't have to read documents such as 'The Jewish World Plague' or 'How to solve the Jewish Question' and the various pamphlets and flyers that were distributed, and as such these documents would have no impact on their lives.

Reality is of course that these documents were part of what eventually lead to the very raising of pitchforks you proclaim to be against - public beatings, riots and eventually the necessary dehumanisation that lead to mass murder.

So while free press is important for the reasons you've given there are also reasons (that you have also given: Giving out people's addresses whilst drumming up public hatred on Twitter)why that freedom can be abused.

What is your proposed solution to these abuses and the risks they entail?

I came here thinking this must be a blog about pipe smoking and instead found it was more a blog about stringy wank dribbling from the soft cock of a semi-impotent masturbator fantasising about underage schoolgirls. It wouldn't be so bad if at least I had the consolation of knowing that you were all heavy smokers and therefore likely to die because of cancer.

Devout Muslim Jubel Miah battered wife and forced her to wear niqab

"He tracked her movements using his mobile phone, tried to stop her going to college, accused her of cheating and falsely claimed there were spies in their loft.

When the victim became pregnant she was found to have injuries to her body and eye when she went to hospital for a 16-week check up.

And when she later went through a traumatic birth delivering a premature baby, Miah was so enraged that a male doctor was treating his wife afterwards, a female medic had to be brought. He was also said to be angry and threatening to people trying to help the family."

It really is disgraceful the way the racist media have vilified this peaceful, hard-working, devout Muslim family man. He has every right to demand that a female doctor be provided to meet his cultural needs....

Gulf states to introduce medical testing on travellers to 'detect' gay people and stop them from entering the country

"A medical test being developed by Kuwait will be used to 'detect' homosexuals and prevent them from entering the country – or any of the Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC), according to a Kuwaiti government official."

Well, my next imaginary trip won't be to any of the Gulf States, that's for sure.....

This may or may not appear!!!! You do OH whilst rightfully banging the drum on "Freedom of Speech" always ignore the "Elephant in the Room"....the "Holocaust". All over Europe people are jailed for simply saying they do not believe it. Men and women jailed for up to 5 years for doubting a historical event.

The EU want the same law all over Europe, and I suspect they will get it.....

...but you a "champion of Free Speech", and all Human Rights organizations, plus of course Amnesty International always remain silent.....

There is no freedom of speech unless you conform to the views of those who profess it, if not your "arse is left to twist in the wind"....and your censorship of the sacred cow called "Holocaustianity" proves it!!!

Price rises and power cuts by 2016? Thank the EU's energy policy

"Shale gas now accounts for a third of gas production in the USA, with wholesale prices falling by two thirds. The USA has also benefited from an industrial revival as a consequence: manufacturing jobs that had been lost to low wage countries are now returning home. Although US labour costs remain higher than, say, China, cheaper energy has cancelled out much of this this advantage.

Only Europe, where its elites are enraptured by the perils of global warming, bucks this trend. The EU introduced aggressive renewables targets to demonstrate that it is "leading" the world in reducing CO2 emissions. But, given what Europe will soon look like, it's hard to imagine any sane political leader elsewhere on Earth wanting to "follow"."

Things could be about to get interesting for the followers of the @Global Warming' religion.....

I cannot help but notice Ciaron Goggins has lost another twitter account this week. One can only presume that he has been using it to try a groom under age twinks to skype him images of themselves naked possibly to share with his convicted paedophile chum Neil Redrup.
