IT'S BACK!  Actually it's been back for a couple of weeks.  Has anyone noticed?


Predictably dominated by internecine, circular arguments about Brexit.  Which is possibly part of the reason why we've found ourselves in such a mess in the first place...  :-\


Anyway, it all might be exasperating, but at least it doesn't really annoy me like questions such as last night's based on the endorsement of Sayeeda Warsi's perpetual and bogus victimhood narrative.   And in Dewsbury of all places, which flatly rejected Warsi as a parliamentary candidate; you couldn't make it up.  ::)

I watched it on Thursday for the first time in a good while.
The Labour bloke was a dick, the Tory was a dick, The lawyer was a dick, Vince was just Vince and the woman from the Telegraph looked pretty until she opened her mouth and bile came out...

Lively one tonight.

Social Justice Warriors getting their identity politics in a hopeless muddle as ever.

Isabel Oakeshott looking down her nose at folk - often justifiably - as ever.

Token besuited sensible guy not a politician as ever.

Union Flag Thornberry as batty as ever.

Get them all back for next week.  And throw Farage into the mix - boom!

Well, "George The Poet" wound me up a bit last night.  So here's a message for him:

The plural of anecdote
Is not "Data";
Claiming this nation is xenophobic
On a panel provided for you by the State-funded BBC
Makes yourself no less of a hater.

I want to jump up and down on George the "Poet"'s head.

Does that make me a racist?

No, it makes me completely rational and sane. He needs it. I'd do the same to Thornberry, that doesn't make me a misogynist.

It makes you inherently violent!

I am the least violent person in the world. However, some people deserve a good bit of having their head jumped up and down on, even if only metaphorically, as I don't want blood and snot all over my shoes :)

According to George, it doesn't matter; you (and I) were racist and xenophobic before he gave us cause to be annoyed.  Because we're white Brits who need lectures from regressive SJW's before we know how to think and behave.

For an example of the "bigotry of low expectations", look no further than George on QT.

There's a real lack of comprehension in today's world. The audience bloke said Britain was on of the "least" racist countries out there. Why can't people understand the qualifying word "least".

People only seem to be able to deal with their own certainties. There is only one certainty: Old Rush Good, New Rush Bad :)

I think he has a point, but expressed it poorly.

For me, much of the result of the EU referendum was driven by immigration and that makes us xenophobic (to a degree)

He was an irritating dick, but I much preferred listening to him than Isobel Oakeshot (sp?)

But surely not to the extent George was claiming - somewhat hysterically.

I probably shouldn't comment on this as I've not seen QT for 2 years or more, but....is it really xenophobia that drove much of the result of the BREXIT vote? I'm not sure how you would go about proving that case.
No good deed goes unpunished!

No amount of anxiety can change the future. No amount of regret can change the past.

Absolutely....but then he's a black man from a city, so his experience will be vastly different to ours...
