No, 'Technology' Isn't Killing The MSM....

Is it just me or does it seem like the MSM is more upset about JLaw's nudey photos being hacked than about 1400 rapes in Rotherham?

I don't recommend holding your breath waiting for any MSM articles about how the hacker was clearly disenfranchised by society. Plus the MSM didn't spend a decade claiming that anyone who said there were hackers out there was clearly some kind of technophobic lunatic.

Ace of Spades blog makes an important point here (as well as pointing out another case the MSM is desperate not to report). The repellent thing about the MSM's slippery reporting is not just the point blank refusal to cover certain stories, but all that combined with a determination to ram other stories down our throats as disturbing insights into the dark heart of our society.

The MSM published millions of words of agonised opinionating over whether or not the police were 'insensitive' to the family of Stephen Lawrence, but now we have a case where, amongst other things, evidence in a rape case was lost and the MSM reports that like it's just one of those things. Could happen to anyone. Probably down the back of the sofa. Let's just draw a line under it and move on.

Also: Imperialist Running Dog Kulak

If you've ever wondered whether or not Political Correctness was class war by other by other means, I believe we may have an answer:
It was therefore a disappointment, if not a surprise, to receive a call from someone on the Conservative Party's candidates list last night to inform me that unless I ceased to question this move towards a new Party structure I would be expelled from the Conservative Party for being a "racist and 'homophobe'".
Yep, racist and homophobic for opposing centralisation of power in the Tory Party.

Huh? 

Seriously, how does that even make sense? These guys really do believe that everywhere outside north London is a wasteland of bigoted buffoons. And that's without considering the irony of a party that talks about the 'Big Society' but insists on treating its members as serfs.

Of course, these new plans do seriously threaten UKIP. Once local people are swept aside by a battalion of Dave's Drones, equipped with the latest ProleTalk Module 1.7, I'm guessing UKIP are going to seriously struggle to handle all those new membership applications.

(And then there's this bit of deranged doubling down.)

Her Highness Addresses The Lower Orders

Heh. I'm so old I remember when Labour was against the hereditary principle.

Not to give aid & comfort to the enemy, but someone should tell them that's not what people mean when they talk about 'family values'.

What really pushes it over the top is her playing the victim card. She faced derogatory comments at Oxford, see. Much like those other 18 year old kids, who faced derogatory comments except in Afghanistan. Also: mortar fire, but they were men so they were oppressors and Princesss Emily is a victim, even while she scores a bundle of cash doing a job in the City, just like Nye Bevan before her.

Her life's a Bruce Springsteen song, I tells you.

Conspiracy Nuts FTW!

Who'd have thunk it? A former 'impartial civil servant' turns out to be a pal of Red Ed and a wannabe member of the Labour Parachute Club, looking forward to representing the people of [fill in the blank].

Actually, just about everyone could have predicted it. This was the guy who sat on the investigations into jihadist grooming gangs but flooded the zone for phone hacking. Just about the only people trying to deny the existence of the Big Red Elephant in the room where the Certified Super Genii at Tory HQ.

These are the guys that assured us that Komrade Keir and the rest were jus' folks, good honest hard working public servants and anyone who said otherwise was some crazed 1980s throwback jibbering about the something called the 'culture war'.

Now we know the truth. Yes, Cast Iron Dave did leave an off the scale lefty in charge of prosecutions even as the Great British Public rejected everything Starmer stands for. The Right was right, and the only 'bumpkins' were all the soi dissant sophisticates who believed the Nu Tory Party was about anything other than ideological surrender.

Well Played, Sir!

Google has started to adjust to the European Court's bonkers 'right to be forgotten' decision and the first high profile case turns out to be.... a top banker forced out after the crash.

What are the odds, huh?

Of course, this is one for the 'why don't more people do this' file? Make the left own their stupidity. Google are doing exactly what they were told to do and this guy's just using the right the Court conjured up of thin air. This is what the decision means: you can live the life of Reilly then when it all goes horribly wrong you can demand no one is allowed to talk about it.

All of which is by way of saying that if it's only a few right-wing whack jobs who could possibly object to all this, how come liberals need to get their mates on the bench to force it through instead of anyone we can vote out?
