Me, Not The Left Wing Mouthpiece!
For various reasons I observed sections of PBC's Sunday Politics interspersed with the more easy on the eye and ear, Sky's Murnaghan. Rug Head Neil's owning of that whimper from the recent past of Labour's disastrous government, we Dougie Alexander, was contrasted by his attempt to do the same to Nige "man of the people and hour" Farage. I really think I might sign up as a member despite my staunch love of the old Conservative values.
Values portrayed by that ghastly Labour political broadcast as their imaginary and envy fuelled dogma so stench ridden of Labour pretensions to be more than Union lackeys. That not withstanding, the wee Scots child fidgeted and whinged his way through a car crash of an appearance and Neil, credit where credit is due, gave him a deserved kicking.
Also evident on both programmes was the palpable fear now gripping the Established Parties of the modern day. Whenever UKIP was mentioned Alexander appeared to have a toilet malfunction, as had "Dave" on the earlier Marr programme. Whatever the outcome of this EUSSR farce of electing a powerless and unnecessary gravy train of a Parliament, if, as expected, Europe wide, people go for right wing and dominant common sense representatives, the Establishment will have several uncomfortable, even fatal, years to come.
Then came Rug Head versus Nige. What joy. Farage was ferocious in exposing the interviewer's pathetic misrepresentations and dubious factual utterances. Ruggy shouted on about a video clip of some manufactured non-PC utterances from UKIP but when challenged, there was no attempt to show the evidence.. Normally the clip would be shown and then debated! Such underhand but now recognised bias.
Changing tack, our Scottish wannabee bruiser tried that LibLabCon joint effort, made last week, to trap Nige into diverting his attention, from the EU farcical election, with the bait set in Mercer's resignation from Newark. Camoron called the UKIP leader "frit" and the media also attempted, even today, to make this stick. How weak and ridiculous this smearing effort is becoming. All from the Snotty "Mrs Duffy" manual, "What we in power really believe our serfs are about".
So much of the personal, playground name calling by the Establishment has become really infantile. Albeit with a very nasty side indeed. Ruggy's last try at making something stick, as a sign of weak character in Farage, was his mention of the UKIP leader having to employ bodyguards. As if all the other bunch don't. Nige struck back beautifully as to why this had become necessary.
It was down to the hard Left's and Labour's thugs, employed to chase UKIP's leader down and create snarling, despicable, violent expressions of hatred. Those to be then edited as reasonable protest against the other side's thuggery credentials by transference. Much as is done against the EDL rallies.
Farage was incisive in that riposte and Ruggy was left floundering as to how the attempted smear rebounded on his beloved Labour chums. Don't be fooled by Neil's apparent attacks on Labour representatives. That's all staged and meant to elicit sympathy for the supposed victims, whilst really pushing his, Ruggy's, bosses lefty bias.
One final observation was that gross wrinkly, John Seargent, on Murnaghan. Challenged as to the desirability of a PBC Director General being a woman, our "twinkle toes" was most apoplectic! I got a whiff of vaulting ambition there! He is certainly eminently well qualified for the post if aged, fat cat smugness is a required credential. Watch this space as another closet misogynist, spurned by beautiful women, on natural selection grounds, seeks to scramble to the level of his own inadequacy!
