Authentic Trousers

#BBCbias #Hippo

 

Dear Conservative Campaign Headquarters, thank you for your email.

You said , "On Tuesday, the Labour leader U-turned, saying that Labour will not take control over immigration"

Not at all sure that Jeremy Corbyn said that but he, like Theresa May, voted to REMAIN and as such they both endorsed the notion of Free Movement within the EU whilst wanting to reform the EU albeit for different reasons.

If you wish to undermine Jeremy Corbyn on these terms, it would also be incumbent on you to undermine your very own Theresa May, since she voted for REMAIN and is therefore in favour of Free Movement. She kept it quiet, but that is what she did with her binary choice.

Obviously you and The Guardian and the BBC and the right wing press are out to trap and undermine Jeremy Corbyn on this subject and have given May a free rein to have a free reign.

However, Corbyn is the only authentic voice for social justice. Theresa May has authentic but inconsequential leather trousers. Very brown they are.

I’m So Vain

#BBCbias  #GuardianBias  #Hippo

Well done Jeremy Corbyn for disappointing the BBC and the Guardian and for not falling into their "free movement" traps.

Both have failed to avoid reporting what Jeremy actually said on the subject because that did not provide them with an opportunity to undermine him.

So then came the snide smears.

Suzanne Moore's arrogant bile in the Guardian says more about Suzanne Moore's vanity, than the views of Jeremy Corbyn and what he has said on the subject of "free movement". Had she contradicted his views that would be to expose herself as a bigot.

Where Suzanne Moore provides no evidence or context, The Canary did otherwise. The Guardian and the BBC continue to fail to impress.

The BBC has taken it way too far.

Deadly Bull Shit

#NHS #SaveTheNHS #Hippo

09 January 2017

When the Conservatives promised adequate future NHS funding in order to get elected, it was not acceptable; they now repeat that promise today as if we were not now in that "future". Mayday restated her long term Tory plans for the NHS yesterday and Jeremy Hunt made the same feeble unconvincing promise today, as if that made complete sense.

We are now in the inevitable "future" predicted by NHS professionals. Patients have died on trolleys in NHS corridors this week. This deadly crisis was created by this government.

Fake News

UPDATE

Laura Kuenssberg is the political editor of the BBC, who was recently feted by the Main Stream Media, who in turn have a questionable interest in this false story by Laura Kuenssberg, which undermined Jeremy Corbyn.

The BBC Trust has now upheld their earlier decision that Laura Kuenssberg, who represents BBC News, had misrepresented and undermined Jeremy Corbyn with Fake News.

Other examples of Laura’s misdemeanors are available on these pages.

Laura Kuenssberg is not accused of being wrong because she is a “woman” and such desperate peddled nonsense by the MSM is patronising to “women” and fails to obfuscate this story. Tory Laura Kuenssberg is at fault because she faked the news and damaged Jeremy Corbyn’s reputation; it is not the other way around.

The BBC is more important than Laura Kuenssberg’s received perception of Jeremy Corbyn. Let her go.

The Guardian and BBC News claim to be objective, but both have ignored this humiliating story.

Let them speak.

We we are waiting.

Apology, long overdue.

If you can’t Google the apology it does not exist or is not meant to be found.

To ignore this story, the BBC and the Guardian confirm palpable evident and discreditable ..

Yes, He Can

The BBC question is forever, "Can Corbyn win?" and never "What does Corbyn stand for?"

#BBCbias #ToryLauraK #Newsnight #YesHeCan

It may not be incumbent upon the BBC to endorse a politician of any particular persuasion, but it is equally inappropriate for them not to undermine the capability of any particular man or woman, with no account or discussion of the views they represent.

To endlessly speculate whether a Jeremy Corbyn might win a General Election is a self-serving prophecy. The BBC should shut the fuck up, leave out the personal deprecations and stick to meaningful balanced discussion of policy.

Priority No 1 ought to be Social Justice, lest it be forgotten altogether.

Person of the Year

Jeremy Corbyn

“Principled, democratic, honest and fair minded. In politics, these values count as radical,”

This is what we thought at this time last year but now we can apply the adjectives, tenacious and accomplished.

Jeremy Corbyn has stoically faced down a remarkable degree of prejudiced personal abuse from the right wing gutter press, and the wider main stream media.

The parliamentary Labour Party, the BBC and even The Guardian failed to oppose the bilious  commentary on Jeremy Corbyn. In fact they knowingly accommodated the trash media, and gave them a disproportionate voice, knowing it would undermine Jeremy Corbyn.

Never do the MSM question the policies of Jeremy Corbyn. There is nothing in that for them or Theresa May who’s pantomime PMQS debates are weak and meaningless posturing. Jeremy has maintained his integrity and even admits to “learning on the job”, Nevertheless he has successfully rendered May intellectually redundant.

 

Donald Trump

The antithesis of Jeremy Corbyn is this man. The MSM would have us believe that Corbyn and Trump have something in common and that would of course be the so call “populism”, ie popularity.

That would only be a good point if you don’t want to discuss actual policy. The MSM including the BBC are failing and that became the story of 2016.

The MSM are charged with the corruption of the political process.

The Main Stream Media are the problem and not the enlightenment.

Love is a very splendid thing. A movie called "Love" was created by us Monks at Shoestringonline. We then discovered that there were 10,729 movies on vimeo with the same title. Most seem to be syrup, or church, or just bad, or all three. Surely there would be enough to start a Love Channel. Love Channel was born, or was there already a Love Channel. Apparently not.

The Hee Bee Gee Bees

When the Democrats complained about Putin interfering in the US election that gave us the farce of a President-elect Trump, we were then bound to reflect on Murdoch’s part in that election of Trump through the weighted medium of Fox TV.

 And then we might consider the small matter of Murdoch’s interference in consecutive UK elections for his own commercial gain?

Media mogul man Rupert Murdoch is the foreign king-maker deciding who will be our next Prime Minister.

When James Murdoch faced questioning by the Leveson enquiry he claimed the BBC had unfair commercial advantage over SKY.

Then followed the Tory trimming of the BBC budget, a corruption and a compromise of BBC independence and indeed bias.

It is inconceivable that the Murdochs did not receive promises from Cameron in exchange for his support.

Murdoch is again trying it on with another  SKY take-over bid.

The Lanyard

Mrs. Monk purchased this week a brand new “lanyard”  for her car keys.

What she didn’t know was that her brand new “lanyard” was also a neckless of Christmas lights.

Mrs. Monk accidentally ignited her personal Christmas illuminations today by leaning on the counter at the Pall Mall surgery and triggering the on switch for the first time.

She was there to complain as always but she  unwittingly lightened the mood by sparkling in the “lanyard” intermittent sparkling mode.

The prescribing of heavy duty drugs was never more Christmassy.

You learn something every day. I had to look it up. Go ahead. “Lanyard” ?!

5 Years Ago

This movie was first posted in 2010 on these pages and has somehow found an audience this last month.

 

 

Farmville Meat Is Murder

We Monks are not vegetarians but we are animal friendly, and we are so without discrimination of one specious over another.
All animals are equal with the possible exception of Tory homo sapiens, who are more equal than others.
These animals appeared on the kitchen table and were photographed by Mrs Monk and seemed to resonate with BSE and Farmville and Morrissey and of course Orwell.

This movie was the result.
