GCHQ: Why we need Murdoch

So the Guardian, that great defender of common liberty, that doughty defender of press freedom, that powerful champion of the voiceless, caved in like a little crybaby girl the minute the secret police came knocking at the door. Yes, of course, Mr Secret Policemen, the Editor cried - watch us smash up all our own computers! See! Look, I'll smash my iPhone too, and my wristwatch! 

The paper that loves Leveson, the tax-fiddling rag that wants to keep the lid on Hugh Grant's encounters with crack-whores, home to the certifiably lunatic Lady Toynbee, is no more than a fully compliant member of the big-State establishment. If there was a competition to become the Pravda and Isvestia of Britain's political class the Guardian would win it by miles. A paper so socialist-liberal that its balls have been re-absorbed and regrown as Cameronesque man-tits, a tittle-tattle newsrag with all the temerity of a goose, a chiselling, crooked, distorted little dungheap of second rate writers and fourth rate intellects and not even fit for use as arse-wipe. 

Dear God - and they wonder why we need Murdoch.

If I had my way I'd replace Alan Rusbridger with Godfrey Bloom. I don't think he'd put up with Polly Toynbee's menopausal rants for very long, or George Moonbat's ecofascist ravings.

Imagine a penitent George being arrested for dynamiting windmills, while Polly, on her hands and knees, scrubs away behind the fridge.

A Bongo-Bongo Land travel supplement might be on the cards too.

It has its picturesque originality: thank you.

You could apply the same description to the BBC.

G. Tingey said...

The spooks were TOLD there were other copies, out of their reach.
And they went ahead & demanded destruction of the hard drives anyway.
The level of arrogant bullying stupid is plain to see.

Ah, I also see that the autocrats masquerading as conservatives have come crawling out into the comments section today, as well!

Mrs Proudie of Barchester said...

'Guardian' of what, exactly? Perhaps they should change their name to 'The Collaborator'

Elby the Beserk said...

The loss-making Guardian being the same paper that squealed like a stuck pig when the Climategate letters, showing the clear malfeasance of many climate scientists in pursuit of the Great Global Warming God, were released to the public.

Cunts, frankly.

Gordon the Fence Post Tortoise said...

Fair to say then perhaps that they're not your favorite MSM outlet?

This is about intimidation not the data. Simply because it is the Guardian, often a silly comic to my eye, does not make this action acceptable.

G Tingey: You are indeed right, especially about the truly vile state loving autocrats, the faux 'conservatives' who's worship of the state is worse than those they decry.

Anonymous said...

Of course it's about intimidation, and quite right too.

This is finding the horse's head in the bed when you wake up - something that wouldn't impress these guys, because they wake up to worse!

They should think themselves lucky they weren't pursued by a white Fiat Uno ... or Danny Nightingale with a Glock.

I recall the Manchester Guardian which I used to take in the 40's and 50's. It was quite good value. Neville Cardus did a very good cricket job. Could this be connected or is it something completely different?

Anonymous said...

the Guardian, a metaphor, an organ in perfect alignment and committed to rigorous intercourse with the Frankfurt School fundament, unnaturally of the Labour party.

John M said...

I actually disagree, and not because I like Rusbridger - I think he's a dick.

But back to the point the spooks turned up demanding kit. Rusbridger told them it was all in the cloud anyway, but the dummass spooks insisted something be destroyed or handed over.

So they went out back, picked up two shitty laptops and smashed them. The dummass spooks then buggered off, convinced they'd actually achieved something.

You couldn't make it up. If he was still alive you could have put Eric Sykes in that sketch.

Ian Hills said...

G Tingey - ah, I see the trolls masquerading as humanists have come crawling out of the woodwork, as per usual.....

@ John M
More likely the Two Ronnies but I don't know who would have played whoM?

Budgie said...

An extremely minor issue (police question a man) has been blown out of all proportion by the Grauniad and its fellow-traveling BBC.

It is especially amusing that the police used the Terrorism Act 2000, passed by the Grauniad and BBC backed Blair government.

Petard and hoist come to mind.

Elby the berserk
You are either seriously deluded or lying
"Climatregate" was a non-event ...
And the scientists were & are correct.
YOU can believe the Koch Bors & Exxon's lies if you choose, that's your stupid prerogative, isn't it?

Ian Hills
Yes YOU ...
An autocrat masquerading as a Burkean conservative - a p.o.v. I actually have a lot of sympathy for _ if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Oh & I'm npt an "humainst" - which is a sunset of christian.
I'm an atheist, so there!

Discussion on this very subject & the limits of guvmint, breaking their own rules & spying & bullying their own subjects ..
Try this, please:

The Grauniad and its fellow traveler, the BBC, have trumpeted a non-event (police question a man) for days, whilst glossing over the fact that the man was being used by the Grauniad as a mule for stolen emails.

In contrast it is amusing to recall how indignant the Grauniad and the BBC were over the Climategate emails which were not stolen but exposed their shibboleth CAGW as a scam. The fake 'scientists' involved have never recovered from the exposure of their data hiding, shoddy work, deceptions and personal vindictiveness. Much to the chagrin of the Grauniad and the BBC.

G. Tingey said...


We DO NOT KNOW if "The man man was being used by the Grauniad as a mule for stolen emails." AT ALL.
He was stopped as amatter of British subservience to the USSA'a secuity apparat, *& as a means of putting the forghteners on ....
See also the link I provided above ...

Meanwhile "climategate" is also bollocks.
Consider ...
Climate Change Conspiracy
For this to be true, all the following & all of their members, have to be both in on the conspiracy & keep quiet about it.
( Oh & what’s in it for them, as well? )

The Royal Society
The Meterological Office
The US National Acadamey of Sciences
The US Weather Bureau
Agence Naitonale de le Recherche …
And the same/parallel institutions in: Germany, Italy, Russia, Sweden, South Africa, Canada, etc (ad nauseam) ….
So that there are tens, if not hundreds of thousands of scientists, all in a big conspiracy, all keeping stumm about something.


Got a tinfoil-hat to lend, anyone?

Budgie said...

G.Tingey, your claims are not improved by your pub bore vehemence and expletives.

The police stated that information taken from David Miranda, the partner of Grauniad journalist Glenn Greenwald, contained "highly sensitive material ... which could put lives at risk". The fact of Miranda carrying this data is not contested by the Grauniad.

Indeed Law firm Bindmans said it had started legal proceedings to "protect the confidentiality of the sensitive journalistic material" seized. So Miranda is a mule for the Grauniad.

As for Climategate there is no evidence for a conspiracy between the institutions you cite, and the evidence of the Climategate emails does not even suggest it. So your "Climate Change Conspiracy" is a straw man.

However if you bother to read even some of the Climategate emails you will see the evidence that there was a number of conspiracies between the email correspondents. Try

G. Tingey said...

And, "the police stated that lives COULD have been put at risk"
And you actually believe them?

Anyone remember the serial lies told by MetPlod when they murdered a Brazilian electrician?

NO - there were internal arguments as the best way to both analyse & present the data.
Entirely normal procedures.
Only some people WANTED to put the worst possible interpretation onto it, Richlieu-style:
Give me six lines written by the most honorable of men, and I will find an excuse in them to hang. him.
