Mail on Sunday Runs Hit-Piece against Sargon of Akkad

April 30, 2019

More from the escalating train wreck that’s the political career of Carl Benjamin, alias Sargon of Akkad. Sargon’s standing as one of the two listed UKIP candidates for southwest England. He’s already been pilloried in the press and media for his infamous tweet directed at Jess Phillips, where he said ‘I wouldn’t even rape you’. Just as his fellow Kipper, Mark Meechan, aka Count Dankula, also has for making a YouTube video about how he had taught his girlfriend’s dog to make the Nazi salute when he shouted ‘Gas the Jews’. Sargon’s name now seems indelibly linked to his Tweet to Phillips, while Dankula has been described by the press as ‘Nazi Pug Man’. And when the Scum describes Sargon as ‘a sicko’ and Meechan as ‘a thug’, it’s very clear that both of them are in real trouble.

Sargon’s Approving Comments on Child Abuse

And on Sunday that day’s edition of the Mail turned its withering attention on him, written by the paper’s political editor Glen Owen, with the title “Now Ukip candidate who said he ‘wouldn’t even rape’ a Labour MP says it’s OK to sexually abuse boys”. It seems an unnamed but highly placed member of the party had given a dossier of comments over to the rozzers. The material apparently included a YouTube post of Sargon’s in which he said he could be quoted as saying that people could f*** young boys. This wasn’t so controversial, as it was normal in ancient Greece, where it was known as mentoring. He was also quoted as saying that he was looking for something that would generate outrage, and appealed to people to send him underage or child porn, which he would quickly delete so no-one gets in trouble. The article also mentioned how he had also created a video in which he used various racial slurs against Blacks, Jews, Asians, gays and the mentally handicapped. It also mentioned that Sargon had sent a porn video to someone, showing a White woman having sex with three Black men.

When asked about this material, Batten claimed they were fabricated tweets that had been disproven years ago, and that Sargon would be taking action. Sargon himself has also sent messages via his Backworldsman twitter account stating that it was conversation that the MoS’ hacks really hadn’t listened to. They’d just recorded his half of the conversation. The MoS article also mentioned that Sargon had been asked about his sex remarks. Sargon called them ‘dirty, dirty smear merchants’, and said that it was ‘an abstract conversation’. Which, as Zelo Street points out, confirms that the conversation actually took place.

Zelo Street concluded their article on this latest mess by stating that by the time Sargon gets a libel suite together, the European elections will have been and gone. He was damaged goods before he joined UKIP, and making him a political candidate was beyond foolish. And that’s before the press starts on the rest of Kipper hopefuls. He ends by waving goodbye to the beleaguered party.

Logan and Co on Sargon and the Self-Destruction of UKIP

Sargon’s massively imploding political career was also discussed by anti-Fascist YouTubers Kevin Logan, Kristi Winters, Mike Stuchbery and The Cognitive Society in the latest edition of Logan’s monthly run-down of events in the far right, ‘Let Them Eat Kek’. And they began by noting just how disastrous Batten’s choice of Sargon, Meechan and the other YouTube rightists were. Winters, who is a political scientist, said that she had never seen a party so determined on its own self-destruction. She and the others agreed that Batten was simply fixated on the immediate election, regardless of the long term harm his recruitment of the members of the YouTube far right were actually doing to his party and its election chances. UKIP’s polling figures have dropped by 10 per cent, so that the party is now favoured by only four to seven per cent of the people polled.

And while Sargon’s supporters claim that the comments attributed to him about child abuse are false, Logan confirmed that at least one of them was true. Sargon had defended the sexual abuse of young boys, saying that it depended on the child, in an internet conversation with another YouTuber, the Justicar, who said he had sex when he was ten years old. He also said that it depended on the child in a conversation with another YouTuber, Amos Yee. Logan was, however, doubtful that Sargon had made the comments requesting people to send him images of child abuse.

In fairness, it has to be said that these do contradict other comments Sargon has made about the age of consent. The Mail on Sunday also quoted him as saying that he has always said that it should be raised to 18 in his rebuttal of the paper’s allegations. Logan said on his video that Sargon really does believe this, just as he’s made these comments approving the absolute opposite. Logan and his guests in the video absolutely condemn sex with children. Winters points out that children cannot legally consent to sex, even if they feel they can do so. They simply aren’t prepared, physically, mentally or emotionally, for sex with adults.

Sargon’s Attack on ‘Political Correctness’

And apart from his noxious views on the abuse of underage children, Sargon seems determined to torpedo his career in other ways. In their video, Logan and his guests also comment on a video of Sargon’s interview with Sky News Kate McCann. And this is another train wreck. He begins by asserting the decline of the press, and that he’s superior because he has a million subscribers online. This is a false security, as while print sales are declining, the online editions of newspapers are expanding massively. He defends his comment to Jess Phillips and the video in which he uses racial slurs. He states that he is determined to attack ‘political correctness’ because of the way it is undermining free speech. He also believes it should be discarded as soon as possible, as if it is not, then someone much worse than him will come along and do it. He defends the video by stating that it is part of the British tradition of dark, edgy humour, which includes racist jokes. Which he then admits to enjoying.

Ignorance of Duties of MEPs and Kipper Policy

He also doesn’t seem to know much, if anything, about the European parliament nor what he will be expected to do if he is elected to it. And when asked by McCrae, he can’t even name one UKIP policy, even though he went to the European Parliament as part of a UKIP delegation objecting to a specific EU policy. He could have mentioned that, but he doesn’t. He just goes on to make his comments about political correctness and defending racist jokes.

How Long Will Sargon Be Tolerated by YouTube?

Logan and his guests conclude that it’s very likely that Sargon won’t get elected, and that he and the others will take UKIP down with them. Sargon may not even really be interested in working for the party anyway. He may see it simply as a strategy to get more viewers for his YouTube videos. And it isn’t certain how long he can continue with them. He’s already been banned several times on Twitter. In the great scheme of things, one million followers is not a great amount – nowhere near as Pewdiepie – and so YouTube may feel that they’re better off banning him rather than risk advertisers turning away because of Sargon and his content.

Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and the Synagogue Shooting in America

Apart from Sargon and his antics, the video also includes discussion of the recent synagogue shooting in America, committed by another Fascist piece of garbage, who had previously attempted to burn down a mosque. They make the point that this shows that islamophobia has to be treated as seriously as anti-Semitism, as the Fascists who attack mosques are equally opportunities racists.

Sargon’s Refusal to State Political Views

I can’t fault Logan and co’s analysis of Sargon and his antics. Logan said in a previous video that the press would go back to Sargon’s previous videos apart from his infamous tweet to Phillips, and use them to tear him apart. And when asked by McCann what he really stood for, Sargon refused to say, and directed viewers to look at his YouTube videos instead for information. This they are unlikely to do. Sargon has been posting on YouTube for years and years, and so there are hundreds of his videos there. Most of them are unlikely to interest the average voter, as they’re mostly about video games and the online gaming community. People are therefore not going to be at all willing to wade through this material just to find his views on tax, the EU or private industry for example.

Racist Jokes Unacceptable in 21st Century

As for his admission that he enjoys racist jokes, this probably does appeal to UKIP’s core voters. These are mostly socially conservative voters over 50, who feel left behind by recent societal changes and threatened by the rise of ethnic minorities and feminism. I’ve no doubt that some of them yearn for the days of the 1970s and comedians like the late Bernard Manning, who was notorious for his racist comedy. But UKIP has also lost tens of thousands of members, who are very much not racist and who have resigned in protest at the direction Batten has taken the party. And what was acceptable in the 1970s is very much unacceptable four decades or so later, especially with young people. But Sargon doesn’t seem to realise this. On the video Logan and his friends remark on how smug Sargon looks when he talks to McCann about his opposition to political correctness and enjoyment of racist jokes. He really doesn’t realise that he’s just done more damage to his campaign and his party.

Sargon really is set on destroying his political campaign and the party of which he is a member.

Logan and his guests recognise this, and so agree at the end of the video that they’re going to have to make the next one about Farage’s Brexit party. They’ve overtaken UKIP in the polls, and so represent a greater threat.

Vox Political: ‘Sack Kuenssberg’ Removed due to Misogynist Trolls

May 10, 2016

Mike over at Vox Political has put up several pieces about the controversy surrounding a 38 Degrees petition to have the Beeb’s politics editor, Laura Kuenssberg, sacked because of her overt Conservative bias. It seems that the fellow, who put up the petition has taken it down because it had in his view been hijacked by sexist trolls.

See the article at: http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2016/05/10/sack-kuenssberg-petition-taken-down-due-to-sexist-trolls/

This follows a piece in the Guardian in which the former political editor of the Independent on Sunday, Jane Merrick, stated that Kuenssberg had faced a level of abuse not directed at male reporters, like Nick Robinson, which was explicitly misogynistic. She reported that Kuenssberg had been called a whore and a bitch on Twitter. She then made general comments about Corbyn’s supporters. They weren’t all sexist misogynists – far from it. But she said that there was a ‘core of hard-left misogyny’ that emerged when he was under pressure. This was the same kind of abuse that had been directed at Stella Creasy and Jess Phillips. She then called on Corbyn, as the advocate of a kinder type of politics, to condemn this abuse of a respected journalist.

See Mike’s article at: http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2016/05/10/sexism-accusation-against-anti-kuenssberg-campaigners-is-a-classic-diversion-tactic/

Mike points out in these articles just how overt Kuenssberg’s political bias is.

Mike writes:

This Writer considers the BBC’s political editor to be hopelessly prejudiced in favour of the Conservative Party. It is an issue that has nothing to do with her gender, skin colour, religion or any other such defining factor.

She simply can’t keep her own politics out of her work. For a reporter, that is a fatal error and This Writer cannot understand why anybody would want to support her in it – least of all a Labour MP like Ms Phillips.

If Kuenssberg wants to turn every report into a pro-Tory opinion piece, then let her become a pundit. Stick her on the Daily Politics or This Week with Andrew Neil and give the political editor’s job to somebody who can do it impartially.

He also posts a piece from one of his commenters, who has a nephew, who did some number crunching of his own, which flatly contradicts Kuenssberg’s assertions. Kuenssberg has claimed that these elections are ‘mid-term’, when they are not, and that Labour should be winning hundreds of seats, which they haven’t. Looking at the evidence, the commenter’s nephew says that actually Labour have done quite well, and it is the Tories who have taken the hardest blows. The commenter states:

“In fact this is the worse Tory performance in the local elections since 1996 when John Major only got 29% which was an improvement from 1995 when they only got 25% of the vote. But again this is not being reported.”

Mike also condemns the sexist abuse of Kuenssberg. Not only are such views vile in themselves, but they bring into disrepute everyone, who genuinely wants the Beeb to report fairly and accurately, and have allowed Kuenssberg to get away with her biased journalism.

Mike in his article also suggests that the sexist comments might be a deliberate strategy to torpedo the complaints about her bias. He states that all a political stooge has to do is get their supporters to sign the petition and leave offensive messages on it. Then all they have to do is make complaints about it. He makes clear that this may not have happened in Kuenssberg case, but it is a possibility, at least from now on.

In fact, this is exactly the tactics Hillary Clinton’s supporters have used against her rival for the Democratic nomination, Bernie Sanders. She accused Sanders’ supporters of being sexist, especially after a group of them threw money at her in protest at her accepting funding from Wall Street. She also hired an internet company to go online to tackle Bernie’s supporters posing as her supporters. The Company was ironically called Correct the Record. And I’ve posted up a piece a week or so ago from Secular Talk, which reported how a string of pro-Bernie websites got taken down after complaints from Clinton to the host company about sexism and misogyny. The numbers of websites taken down – something like 12, or perhaps as high as 25, I can’t really remember, all in one evening, make it highly suspicious that this was really due to sexism by the sites’ members.

As for Corbyn and the ‘hard Left’ having a misogynist core, well, perhaps. It wouldn’t surprise me. Obnoxious trolls are, after all, found everywhere. But it’s not typical of the hard Left in my experience. In the 1980s the Left was reviled and abused for being PC. This was the decade when alternative comedians like Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson, French and Saunders, the Young Ones, Alexei Sayle and Ben Elton burst onto our screens from the London comedy clubs. They refused to make the same sexist and racist jokes as the previous generation, reared in the working men’s clubs, like Bernard Manning. They were explicitly Left-wing, and actually made jokes about the chauvinistic treatment of women and at the expense of comedians like Manning.

They were part of a general trend in the Labour party of the time. Part of what had Ken Livingstone sneered at as ‘Red Ken’ was the fact that the-then leader of the GLC gave his support to a whole plethora of organisations for women and minorities. In his 1987 book, Livingstone’s Labour, the bane of Margaret Thatcher talks about the evolution of human society from primordial matriarchy, and argues for a nationwide network of women’s support offices. This naturally drove Thatcher nuts. At one of the Tory conferences she delivered a foam-flecked rant about ‘Fabian champagne Socialist’ teachers corrupting the minds of their tiny charges with homosexual propaganda and ‘anti-racist mathematics’. Now, thirty or so years later, we have the Tories claiming to be okay with gay marriage. As for misogyny, one of the lads I knew at College, who was a very committed Labour party supporter, was very far from being either racist or misogynist. This was also characteristic of much of the Left outside the Labour party. I can remember reading a piece in the Express about one of the Marxist sects – possible either the Communist Party are the Socialist Workers, or perhaps just Militant in the Labour party, which explicitly noted how anti-sexist the men were, and their rejection of certain forms of traditional masculinity.

I’m not saying that there haven’t been sexist trolls spouting vile abuse at Kuenssberg, who are genuinely left-wing. But after the tactics used by Hillary Clinton to smear Sanders’ supporters, I’m more than a little suspicious.

Vox Political on the Silence of the Hillsborough Liars

April 27, 2016

Mike over at Vox Political has posted up a piece giving credit for the Metro laying out today’s cover, so it looked like that of the notorious issue of the Scum which lied about the Hillsborough disaster and the behaviour of the Liverpool fans. He also states that the revelations have been greeted with silence by the Scum and Bernard Ingham, Maggie’s press secretary, who made some of the appalling smears.

See Mike’s article at: http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2016/04/27/silence-wont-save-the-liars-who-defamed-the-football-fans-at-hillsborough/

I think the Scum has made an apology about the disaster, but only after it changed its editor. The editor of the paper at the time was Kelvin MacKenzie, who has never apologised. Unfortunately, his mendacity hasn’t harmed his career one bit. The last time I saw him on TV, he was a regular, along with Nick Ferrari, another right-wing hack, on the Alan Titchmarsh show on daytime TV.

As for Bernard Ingham, he was nicknamed ‘Thatcher’s Rotweiler’, and had the same hatreds and political instincts as his mistress. He resents being described as a ‘spin doctor’, but as he was her press secretary, that was more or less what he was, and that’s where the rot started, although I’ve no doubt that No. 10 was managing the content of news stories long before then.

Ingham was, along with another of other celebs, caught out on ’90s TV by the edgy funster Chris Morris in his spoof news programme, Brass Eye. This had a section where various celebrities and personalities read out fake messages warning people of some imaginary threat, or campaigning for a very spurious good cause. Like Paul Daniels telling the world about ‘elephant tipping’ in Libya, and the elephant that had got its trunk caught up its bottom. In Ingham’s case, he was made to look very stupid along with his parliamentary colleague, David Amess, the MP for Basildon, and a whole host of TV personalities including Jimmy Greaves, Noel Edmonds, Bernard Manning and Rolf Harris, by reading out a warning about a fake synthetic drug, Cake. Cake was ‘a made-up drug’. One pill was the size of a dinner plate, and it had to be swallowed all in one gulp. It worked by affecting part of the brain called ‘Shatner’s Bassoon’, and was responsible for terrible physical side effects. It was made in Czechoslovakia, and so the goitres it produced on the necks of its addicts were known as ‘Czech neck’. And one girl was so sick with it, she threw up her own hip bone. This is, as you doctor should tell you, physically impossible. And the statement ‘Cake is a made-up drug’ should have alerted Ingham, as it alerted the viewers, that what was coming was a load of rubbish. But Morris and his crew were so persuasive, and Ingham so blinded with his own ego, that he failed to get the joke.

Well, twenty years or so ago, Ingham and MacKenzie lied about the deaths of 96 innocent people, and smeared them and a great British city. And that’s no joke. Their silence about the matter suggests that they are completely unrepentant. Their only remorse is over the fact that they got caught.

Here’s that section from Brass Eye, so you can share some of Morris’ ‘disgusting bliss’.

Newzoids Spoofs Nigel Farage

April 24, 2015

These are a couple of videos from ITV’s satirical puppet show, Newzoids. The show’s a mixture of puppetry and CGI animation. It was billed as the 21st century’s successor to the classic Spitting Image. They were seriously considering bringing that series back, but the idea was dropped because the series would simply have been too expensive given inflation, lower production expenditure and advertising revenue, and stricter health and safety legislation. For the latter, Fluck and Law, the creators of the puppets used in the series, expressed amazement at the relative disregard they had for proper safety standards when they were using highly toxic and flammable materials.

The puppets used in Newzoids are rather different to those in Spitting Image. They’re less complex, rubber hand puppets and more like solid, wooden figurines moved by sticks. Or at least, that’s the image the animation gives.

The satire, though, is still very sharp. In this sketch, Nigel Farage is shown as a Bernard Manning-style stand up club comedian, railing and sneering about immigrants. The crowd heckles him, reminding him of how false and hypocritical his claims are, and that he’s actually a millionaire banker with a foreign wife.

I found the second sketch below on the SlatUKIP page. It shows the Purple Duce again as an actor, though this time he’s a vaudeville comedian singing a song about how he’s really an ordinary British bloke. All the while, his alter ego is reminding him that he’s actually a millionaire, with a very expensive education, a German wife, and far from being British, he’s actually French Huguenot in ancestry.

Farage’s ‘Purple Revolution’: Hilarious Reviews on Amazon

March 18, 2015

The good people over at SlatUKIP have pointed out that the Fuhrage’s latest literary oevre, The Purple Revolution, is receiving multiple reviews on Amazon. Unfortunately for the Purple Duce,many of them are negative. But they are hilarious and written with real wit, which is more than can be said for the material written by his party of swivel-eyed loons. Here are some examples.

From Carry On Kampfing:
I can’t believe the number of people only giving this one star. I’ve been so inspired by it I’m off to invade Poland in the morning.

A Most UnBritish Book:
Hugely disappointed with the lack of clear borders on each page. Also the disgraceful use of words that didn’t originate in England and may have come from awful foreign languages like Latin, such as ‘have’, ‘village’ or ‘aquatics’. Is there anyway of checking that all the paper used in this was from British trees? I thought some of it smelled like Norwegian Spruce. Disgusting.

Awful:
Even more uncomfortable than I had anticipated. I will certainly be sticking with Andrex in the future.

Nigel Farage, will you marry me?
Fantastic. Reading this book has changed my life forever – so far today I’ve spat at a foreign woman, shouted abuse at a homosexual (at least I assume he was homosexual, he certainly had a funny haircut) and punched a man who looked like he might have been on benefits. Brilliant.

Whilst this book does serve well as an ignition aid …,
Whilst this book does serve well as an ignition aid for a real fire I would caution against its use as such. I managed to get halfway through the book before I realised I had attracted a gang of neo fascists who assumed the smoke signified the choosing of a new Führer.

Ideal for fascists, racists, sexists, homophobes and nazis.,
Ideal for the fascist, racist, sexist, misogynist, nazi, homophobic tories on steroids I suppose. Fortunately I don’t fit into any of these categories so this product is definitely not for me. I recommend saving your money (for the health insurance you may need if this shower get anywhere near power).

Hugely disappointed.,
Bought for my daughter thinking it was a colouring in book only to discover there was no space for anything other than white. Still, she went to town on the pages with her green crayon but even this was a let down as we couldn’t distinguish her childish scribbles from those of the insane author himself. Hugely disappointed.

Amazing changing
Thought I understood the first chapter, but on re-reading the next day it had completely changed. Apparently that was chapter one just being chapter one. Chapter one had been deliberately misunderstood and was sorry if he offended the reader. Nigel confirmed that he was not getting too excited by Chapter one’s ‘poor taste joke’. Chapter one is not a racist.

Purple Bellend
I have often wondered what would have happened if Hitler had attempted his little go at world domination in the UK, i was hoping the brilliantly witty and culturally diverse British would have laughed and ridiculed him back to the prison in which he originally wrote Mein Kampf.
Well it appears I was correct, the modern Hitler himself, Nigel Farage, has been brilliantly torn apart by the forever great British people who see him for what he really is.

A fearless goose step towards greatness.,
The Bible was written in some foreign mumbo jumbo by a bunch rag heads from bongo bongo land. But nestling between the puce flaps of Nigel’s monumental organ is something altogether more influential. On page after pure white page, the language of William Shakespeare, Margaret Thatcher, Oswald Mosely and Bernard Manning is crafted into a sumptuous banquet of misogyny, misplaced snobbery, jingoism, xenophobia, racism, paranoia and fascism that few could pull off. But as Britain’s most accomplished chain smoker demonstrates, he has been pulling it off for years. The claim is bold but unequivocal. Once women, the poor, the homeless, immigrants, coloureds, gypos, homosexuals, lefties, journalists, environmentalists, sick people and foxes are eliminated, our once glorious realm will return to the pure,aryan nation that Jesus himself always said it would be.

From tobacconists to hangmen, brewers to masseuses, trilby manufacturers to furriers, all will benefit in the Faragian Utopia to come. Nigel Farage transcends mere politics and is something more akin to a cult.

An awful lot of the reviews also compare Farage to Prince, because the Black American musician also likes the colour purple, and also Quality Street chocolates, because of the purple paper they’re wrapped in:

NOT ABOUT QUALITY STREET CONFECTIONERY
Being a big fan of Quality Street chocolates, I purchased this book hoping that the author (an unknown writer named Nigel Farage) had written about my favourite sweet in the tin.
I was wrong. It seems Nigel’s idea of a “Quality Street” would involve house after house inhabited with shaven headed, Union Jack vest wearing cavemen.
Looks like my search for a quality book about a hazelnut in caramel wrapped in chocolate goes on.
Livid.

Worst Prince record ever?,
Well, it’s certainly… different?

Prince Roger Nelson (aka Prince, aka TAFKAP, aka a bunch of other weird things) has always been at the forefront of musical innovation, and has remained a far more worthy heir to the title “the King Of Pop” than that other guy. Probably no one has done more to bring sampling, concrète and other now-commonplace avant pop techniques to the mainstream’s ear, to the point that parody has become easy to try and impossible to master. A consummate composer, devoting whole swathes of his house to impulse recording if you believe that, he has also been innovative in the way he has released and distributed music. In 2010, his record 20Ten was given away as a free CD with various magazines and newspapers, frustrating some consumers but quite probably making more money for himself from the one-off fee than a recording artist could expect to make off regular sales these days. His plan in 2014 to release his latest album not as a CD, vinyl or download, but as a greeting card that plays different tunes when opened at slightly different angles, was ambitious to say the least, but with its delayed release in 2015, it appears it may have been an innovation too far.

The Purple Revolution – a loose concept album about the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s regime of the same name – starts badly when, instead of comprising any kind of audible sound, it instead takes the form of a list of Fluxus-esque instructions which, one can only assume, are intended to be obeyed by the “listener”. But where the likes of Yoko Ono and La Monte Young kept their instructions short and open to interpretation, Prince (in his current incarnation as “Nigel Farage”, the protagonist of the concept piece who judging by the “libretto” spends much of his life sleeping off hangovers and domestic rows in a geographically displaced East India Club) has allowed his to span over a hundred pages, and honestly, it is unclear how anyone is supposed to follow or even interpret any of them. Many concern themselves with what not to do, but this is not particularly helpful to the listener/performer. What is the music? Is anything I do other than read these instructions art? This territory has, I feel, been explored better, more thoroughly, and frankly more coherently in the past.

After lengthy experimentation with the text, a possible alternative avenue may be discovered. Absent-mindedly flicking the “pages” of the album, I noted a feint soughing, which I at first mistook for background noise. Having eventually traced it to the text, I continued in the same way, flicking through the pulpy leaves at faster and slower rates, only to find that the soughing will, at the right speed, resolve into the sound of gentle weeping and pleas for forgiveness. It is harrowing, and could even be touching, but, like so much about The Purple Revolution, I simply have no idea how to respond.

Taken as a work in isolation, I struggle to see any real merit in it. Call me a philistine, but it is simply too obtuse a move on Prince’s part to hide everything of any substance away from the audience and bury it under lengthy rambling about testicle operations and Eastern European gay covens; obfuscation for its own sake just leaves the listener suspicious that the author may have something to hide.

But we cannot just take this in isolation. This isn’t an obscure work by an unknown; this is the product of a man who, at this point in his career, has every advantage in terms of money, media exposure, resources and contacts. And call me a hack if I don’t find it insulting that this is what he’s chosen to do with it.

Many of the reviews are, of course, written by Kippers, who fall over themselves praising the book and recommending that readers pay no attention to the ‘one-star’ reviews written by LibLabCon and the Leftards. This is wrong. it’s the one-star reviews which are the funny ones.

Go to the Amazon review pages and look for yourself.

Tory Humour: Just in Case You Thought the Only Racists Were in UKIP

February 15, 2015

One of the political programmes planned by Channel 4 is a drama-documentary, 100 Days of UKIP, about the possible results of Fuhrer Farage and his blackshirts winning the election. The drama is about the events surrounding the first 100 days of a UKIP government. The story centres around a young, female Asian MP for the Kippers, who becomes increasingly disillusioned with the vicious racism in her party and its policies. The programme predicts the eruption of race riots, caused by the police rounding up and deporting immigrants. Interspersed with the fictional drama is real footage from the Kippers, including Godfrey Bloom and his notorious comments about ‘Bongo-Bongo Land’.

It’s already generated controversy. The Fuhrage himself was due to be interviewed by Paxo as part of the programme, but the Mussolini of embittered, pro-smoking reactionaries pulled out of it. Bloom and other senior Kippers have become notorious for racist and misogynist comments. However, just in case people start to think that it’s only the Kippers, who make comments worthy of the late Bernard Manning, here’s this story from Private Eye. It’s from Private Eye again, for the 11-24 January 2013. It reports how the Tory MP Conor Burns was extremely upset about the coarse nature of the humour in the Big Fat Quiz of the past year during the festive season. It also reminds readers of a racist joke he told at a Tory meeting ten years previously in 2003.

Tory MP Conor Burns led the condemnation of Channel 4 for screening the controversial Big Fat Quiz of 2012.

“I actually watched some of the broadcast because we are staying with family for the holidays and I found it quite distasteful. Sadly, this sort of gauche, vulgar ‘anything goes humour’ that appeals to the lowest common denominator in society is becoming more common,” Burns told the Daily Mail. “it was base, unfunny comedy and in some ways I thought its greater crime really was that it just wasn’t funny… I will be writing to Channel 4 and asking for its editorial explanation for broadcasting such unpleasant output”.

So what does tickle his funnybone? This the same Conor Burns who, as we revealed in Eye 1262, brought the house down at a right-wing dinner in 2003 with a gag Denis Thatcher had told him about how CHOGM did not, in fact, stand for Commonwealth heads of Government Meeting but for Coons Holidaying on Government Money. Boom! Boom!

This was, of course, coming when Dave Cameron was trying to clean up the Tories racist image, ostentatiously getting rid of Tories with very obvious connections to the BNP and severing ties to the Monday Club.

My guess is that despite all this, the racism and racist jokes are still there, and that UKIP don’t by any means have a monopoly on them.
