UK Political Thread, part the second


Meanwhile, the Labour party lets these people back in.

If that doesn’t send a message as to exactly what “Labour” now stands for, then I don’t know what does.

He said: “It is clear that Boris Johnson wasn’t telling the truth.

Ya think?! You hear a lot of buyer’s remorse from DUP leaders and various others too because de Pfeffel has thrown the lot of them under that stupid fucking red bus. He’s been showing us who he is for his entire public life and only now you choose to believe him? I have zero sympathy but we’re all being dragged under the wheels with the rest of them.

Not so much politics as Culture Wars™ but this is how you avoid being pulled into the Tory soundbite game

Huh, usually antipodeans are being brought in as wrecking balls (see trade envoy Tony Abbott or the university administrator below) but is seems this one actually might do some good even if he has to mince his words in front of the committee.

Morally bankrupt pathological liars. As a description of Facebook, its senior management team, and their culture I really don’t see what the problem is here.

Did he really think that a right wing news channel started in this political climate wasn’t going to be hijacked by the far right? Zentrumists are as naive as they were in the 1930s.

He will also return to the BBC as a panellist on Thursday night’s episode of Question Time.

Oh come on ! could the BBC really not take this opportunity to give us a well-earned break from him?

For some unfathomable reason he is a respected broadcaster. Even now.

And I think I can translate that to the UK. I want to make data protection easy – easy for industry to implement at low cost, easy for consumers to exercise privacy-friendly choices in their marketplace, and easy for people to access remedies when things go wrong."

Ahh there it is… he’s picked ease of use and low cost over strong security. You can only choose two afterall! We have been warned.

He’s an Adam Smith institute bod isn’t he? That makes him pretty far right, just not fash.

But the BBC would not have someone as far left as he is right anywhere near the airwaves. They would have had a Christmas tree doodled on their HR files (back when they were paper). Shit, you could get that just for being mouthy.

They did have Paul Mason on Newsnight for a while, but I can’t see that happening now.

ETA: His first appearance was 20 years ago on 9/11.

He was on Question Time back in May but i take your point, he’s no longer a regular.

I hate that it is so hard to leave a country. I don’t want to live here anymore.
