Peston and pals: The Fake News Party

Ever listened to Robert Peston, Laura Kunnesberg and Beth Rigby and thought that something didn’t sound quite right?  Well, your gut instinct isn't playing tricks on you. Listen closely and you’ll hear them repeat the same overtly political messages, targeted precisely to worry and scare the British public into thinking and ultimately voting their way.

Coincidentally, what comes out of the mouth of the Labour Party front bench one week, is regurgitated by this fake news trio the next.  Blurring the boundary between journalism and politics, they’re the mumbling mouthpieces of the moralising liberal elite.  Who can fail to forget their Brexit bashing, austerity carping and Labour loving rhetoric of recent years?

(C) Wikipedia
Take Polly Peston’s question last week to Prime Minister Boris Johnson at his first Coronavirus briefing after nearly a month fighting the illness. Peston presented as fact that the UK could have ‘the worst or among the worst deaths from Coronavirus’.  His less than effusive ‘welcome back’ to a man who was at death’s door a matter of weeks ago, confirmed the real intention behind his question: to use emotionally charged bombshells to shock the public into believing that the UK government isn’t doing its job property.

Professor Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer, smacked down Peston by pointing out that comparing numbers of those who died in each country from COVID-19 alone is not the model agreed upon by the  UK scientific community. He added that it's best to take a view when the pandemic is over. Undeterred by the mathematical and scientific facts, Rigby repeated yesterday the same untruth about the UK’s ranking among its European neighbours, all the while knowing full well that Italy and Spain’s figures exclude those dying in care homes.

Worse still,  Peston asked recently a question about whether the government will 'bring back austerity' and cuts to public services. If that’s not politically laden, what is?  His gotcha moment went ungotcha’d, as the Prime Minister confirmed that won't be his approach. Boris cleverly called-out Peston’s politically poisoned message saying that, “I've never particularly liked the term that you've just used [austerity] to describe government economic policy.” 

One week they’re clamouring for a road map out of the lockdown.  The next, when the government announces what they've have been asking for, lefty Laura and bolshy Beth accuse them of worrying the populous and sending out mixed messages!

Kunnesberg, Rigby, Peston: they and their elitist media pals are all the same. Like a political party, this triumvirate of fake news representatives are on-message daily, dressing up their own brand of opinion based journalism as gospel truth. 
(C) Press Gazette
They don’t care about reporting fact. Working like a creepy cartel, they seek to undermine government by setting the daily news agenda and unscrupulously changing tack when their demands are met.  On Brexit, the General Election and now the Coronavirus pandemic - it's the same old story.  Peddlers, not of fact, but fake news.  The Fake News Party...

Keir Starmer: New Danger?

In working-class households behind the former red wall, the name Sir Keir Starmer will conjure up one or more of three responses: Who’s he?, Yawn! or He thinks we’re thick!  

On each, they’d be spot on. Except for one missing fact: Sir Keir Starmer is dangerous. Delve deeper, and Britain’s hard working Labour voters soon realise that the new Labour leader brings new danger.
Yes, he’s dull and managerial with all the charm of a 1950’s company chairman, but judging him instead by his Labour friends and personal dogma, he’s dangerous. As a vocal supporter of former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and loyal member of his Shadow Cabinet, Sir Keir stayed eerily silent and refused to speak out against Corbyn’s tolerance of anti-semitism within the party and the union movement more broadly. Corbyn turned Labour into the real nasty party; had it been any other party, Sir Keir would’ve named it the most racist political party in Britain. 

Sir Keir, describing Corbyn as his friend, sat speechless in the face of its gradual takeover by extremists. You see, supporting and saying nothing about Corbyn’s self-declared friendship with terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah, and his love of the IRA, doesn’t go down well at the boozers of Bolsover and Bermondsey.

Think Sir Keir will honour the 2016 Brexit referendum, and the subsequent general election results, and keep Britain out of the EU? Think again.  As the architect of Labour’s catastrophic Brexit policy that saw it lose at the recent general election the support of its heartland voters, you’d think Sir Keir would listen and learn. Sadly for Labour’s electoral prospects, he’s having none of it!  Sir Keir’s Labour is so far removed from that of his namesake, Labour’s founding father Keir Hardie, that this knight of the realm places the screeching from the Remoaner Islington-elites above the life chances of its core voters. 

In fact, Sir Keir is so dangerously anti-democratic and out of touch with Labour’s core working class vote,  that he hasn’t ruled out campaigning to rejoin the EU, hoping to gerrymander the result by giving the vote in UK general elections to millions of EU citizens.

The truth is that Sir Keir and his Labour chums bring new danger to an already dangerous Labour Party. They hate Britain, past, present and future.  They’re ashamed of its history and heroes. They loathe its flag, choosing instead to drape themselves in the EU’s banner of gold and blue, and together with the oh-so elitist ├╝ber-Remainers, are disgusted by 
their own core voters behind the now Tory-blue electoral wall. Obsessed by identity politics (except of course the identities of the working-class bedrock of his once great political movement) they pit one group of society against another and, in turn, destroy the very fabric of our nation.

So deluded are many in the Labour Party, that they think the dullest man in Britain will lead them back to power.  Remember how enthused they were over Milliband and Corbyn?  Sir Keir’s appointment is simply moving the deckchairs on the titanic. Keir’s no Kinnock. He is the embodiment of New Labour, New Danger.

Come on, Boris! Britain needs you back at No.10!

The Twelve Days of Brexit: Day 1

On the first day of Brexit my country gave to me: sovereignty and democracy.

We voted for British laws to be made by the UK Parliament alone. Now they will.

No more European Council, European Commission, European Parliament or a future United States of Europe.

 Happy Independence Day!

Why they don’t get it (No.2): They hate themselves

Whether it’s flying the Union Flag or saying they’re British and proud of it, the middle-class liberal elite hate our country. They loathe its past and believe so little in its future, that they’ll do anything to talk it down, undermine and destroy it.

Since the Sixties, they’ve worked tirelessly to deconstruct centuries held notions of patriotism that once bound together our nation and the identity of generations of the British people. In schools and colleges and across the public sector, they’ve instilled in decent Brits a sense of shame for simply loving their country and believing it’s the best in the world. Driven by the doctrines of cultural relativism, inclusion and diversity and multi-culturalism, patriotism has been become a dirty word and seen as offensive.

One of the key reasons Labour has been trounced in election after election over the past decade?  Loving Cuba, Palestine and just about every other extremist regime around the world, it hates viscerally Britain and England (and isn’t afraid to show it).  Together with the rest of the regressive Left, it detests the views and values of its own core hardworking voters - those who wrap themselves up in everything that’s best about their country: family, faith and flag.  Remember the disdain with which Emily Thornberry held working-class white van man for flying the St George's Cross from his family home? 

Some on the right haven’t been much better. Who could forget David Cameron’s description of Brexit supporters as swivel-eyed loons?

Well, those core and once tribal Labour voters, along with a rainbow coalition of others, have stuck up two fingers to the liberal-elite rogues' gallery of Abbott, Blair, Corbyn, Miller, Milliband, Umunna and a myriad of others.
Here’s some advice for them all: fly the flag, sing the national  anthem and talk Britain up. They won’t, of course...
