MSM Self-Awareness Fail

A Telelgraph blogger asks why the 'Rochdale grooming' was allowed to happen. Probably the same reason why the MSM uses slippery euphamisms like 'Rochdale grooming' and turns off comments on posts, eh, Ruthie?

It's A Trap

Yes, it's great that the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy's plan to dope m'luds porridge with anti-psychotics is finally bearing fruit, but on the other hand:
Sentencing the pair to four years in prison, the judge told them: 'If you burgle a house in the country where the householder owns a legally held shotgun, that is the chance you take'.
I guess we're lucky it wasn't mitigation then, they'd be probably be out by Christmas. Meanwhile, don't be shocked but....
Mansell and O’Gorman, who both have no fixed address.....
I did not see that coming.

It's A Real Three Pipe Problem, Watson

What could possibly have persuaded the Filth to hire this guy?

That Was Kind Of The Point...

Alan @ B-BBC notes a certain difference in tone in the BBC's reporting of South Yorkshire Police's two adventures in creative writing.

He's got a point, but coming back at you, Al!

Up until a week ago, anyone saying the official story of Hillsborough was total balls was clearly a tinfoil hat wearing loon. Besides, Scousers! Even though, well, know.

Now we know that the main mistake us sceptics made was lack of imagination. Who knew that even the families' own lawyers were in on it? Are we supposed to be shocked that, contrary to popular mythology, SYP aren't an otherwise blameless organisation driven mad by the strain of dealing with Scousers?

The whole point folks like me were making was that you can't be slightly corrupt. Once you accept that it's OK for police officers to file false reports, destroy CCTV footage and release bogus press statements, there's no getting off the bus. That's Conservatism 101. It's the left and their libertarian pals that keeps telling us, hey, a little bit of corruption/perversion/cannibalism etc doesn't make someone a bad person.

Well, not necessarily, but that's the way to bet.
