Mendonca vs Paxman: what the actress said to the bigot…

Christmas University Challenge has a bit of a dingdong going on; not the scraps between graduates of Warwick, UCL and a dozen other British universities, but the regular opening squabble between Warwick’s Carla Mendonca, and Jeremy Paxman. She’s an actor, says PC Jezza in his introduction, complying with the BBC’s politically correct style guide, I’m an actress, says Mendonca, star of ‘My parents are aliens’, complying with the English language.

It’s the POLICE, stupid!

I’ve been saying this for a fortnight – and finally the mainstream media appear to have caught up a little. In fact I’ll blow my own trumpet a little and repeat that ’speaksforboskone’ CiF comment in full. It is, sadly for the British media, still applicable two weeks on:

More misdirection.

As I’ve been saying all week THIS IS ABOUT THE POLICE.

This scandal reveals the routine, perhaps universal corruption within British police, and the intertwining of media and police.

The media focus on ties, wives and gaffes isn’t the cause of the superficiality of this election and surrounding debate, it’s the result of it. British politics is discussed in a superficial way because only superficial differences are tolerated. Read more »

I see a darkness

I’m worried this morning. Firstly because I got blazing drunk last night and probably made a tit of myself at a blistering gig by the excellent Butterfly Jam. So I’m lying here horribly hungover and mildly embarrassed. Oh, and the other worry is that we’re entering a period of global fascism. Read more »

“It is necessary to destroy democracy in order to save it”

Gotta love the stupidity of Labour, their puppies in the media and their tame cops. A rag tag wannabe army, the EDL, have popped up from nowhere with a simple message and a simple strategy – makes some noise in the right places – and the State apparantly falls apart…. Read more »

The country of the willfully blind

If you want to find a causal factor for the UK’s descent into idiocy, and you’re feeling recklessly uncaring regarding the difference between causation and correlation, then you could do worse than Read more »
