Twit for twat attacks

Last week Myleene Klass was on the receiving end of a massive storm of lefty bile for daring to embarrass Ed Miliband on the television of his ludicrous mansion tax proposals.

Click the image to watch the clip where Ed Miliband had his arse handed to him.

Froth-gobbed lefties demanded that peasant-engarbing chain store Littlewoods terminate their business relationship with this woman for having the audacity to voice an opinion that they found distasteful unpleasant distressing insulting belittling demeaning blah blah blah blah blah.

That’s right.  For voicing of perfectly valid opinion, some people would like to see this woman deprived of part of her livelihood.

But never mind because it was only a couple of days later when the other side of the mong fence got an opportunity to lob a shit mortar.  A pretty mean spirited attack on David Cameron from a previously unheard of lefty gobshite was met with a veritable barrage of utterly disproportionate bile.

Where the "well heeled, out-of-touch" Myleene Klass was a PR front for mong-central Littlewoods, Miss Jack Monroe turns out to have an association with middle class bastion Sainsbury’s.  So, as the laws of twit for twat warfare demand, in between the voguish wishes of rape and death, people were soon calling for Sainsbury’s to end their business relationship with this woman.

Who knows where this moronic race to the bottom will end.

As far as I know neither Myleene Klass nor Jack Monroe have come a cropper over this load of old cobblers and that is as it should be.

There is far too much oppressive shutting down of debate and free speech and the sooner this corrosive phenomenon burns itself out the better.

But there’s an exception to every rule…

On the day that the Labourites were desperately trying to convince the plebs of Rochester and Strood not to vote UKIP, one Emily Thornberry – then shadow attorney general – dropped a tweet that sent twitter into absolute apoplexy.

This bien pensant Islington lawyer’s barely intimated opinion of White Van Man was probably the briefest resignation note ever unwittingly penned.

While some were confecting the mandatory taking of offence, others were making electoral hay and the Miliband camp went into total meltdown. Thornberry was fired.

In this case, unlike the two above, I have no sympathy whatsoever. MPs are fair game. Rotten, corrupt, grasping and other-worldly to the core. As likely as not to want you imprisoned for having and voicing an unapproved opinion.

Live by the offendometer, die by the offendometer. Good riddance.

Update: I wonder how many of those who said this about the attacks on Jack Monroe…

.. said the same about the attacks on Myleene Klass who, as far as I know, is also a woman who voiced a political opinion.

Why won’t anyone just tell the offendotrons to fuck off?

Tim Stanley seems to have woken up from a decade-long coma today, as he writes to point out the utter humourlessness and complete lack of proportionality  belonging to the offence-seeking community.

Some of us have been noticing this state of affairs for a very long time now. It isn’t a new phenomenon. Perhaps it’s just that it’s now so pervasive as to impact on the most indifferent of souls.

The more battles these offense-seeking wasters win, the more their power grows.

The title of this post tells you what it is that’s baffling me about this whole phenomenon: Why do people capitulate to these idiots? Why do we see people bullied, time after time, into making tearful apologies at the feet of these pieces of shit?

Why don’t people just tell them to get a life and get a sense of proportion?

Fucked if I know.

Uh.. guys.. I think I might know why that is…

Just one week ago, the media were reporting that “Children and teenagers have a profound lack of trust in the police”.

image

Well, why ever could that be?

Publishing the findings of an 18-month inquiry, the committee said children and young people’s first contact with the police was vital in shaping their attitudes towards them.

‘Ingrained attitudes’

"For a significant number of children and young people, this experience is a negative one as a victim or suspected offender," the report said.

"Once a negative encounter has occurred, it takes time and hard work to change ingrained attitudes, which are often passed on from one generation to the next".

Some children and young people, the report suggested, feel humiliated when they come into contact with the police, are confused by their procedures, and do not believe they are there to protect them.

Let’s go back to that first paragraph above..

Publishing the findings of an 18-month inquiry, the committee said children and young people’s first contact with the police was vital in shaping their attitudes towards them.

It’s difficult not to keep mulling this over when you subsequently read two very salient stories on two consecutive days:

Well that’s just one isolated incident, and accidents will happ… what? err.. oh.

Olympic medallist Chris Boardman has been branded "a fool" and "stupid" for not wearing a helmet whilst riding a bike a BBC programme on cycling safety.

Angry viewers took to Facebook to complain that the champion cyclist set a bad example by wearing dark clothing and no helmet for a segment on BBC Breakfast on Monday morning.

Mr Boardman was shown riding five miles around the streets of Manchester with presenter Louise Minchin as he gave his top tips for cycling safely in Britain’s cities.

But whilst Mrs Minchin wore a cycle helmet and bright yellow visibility jacket, Mr Boardman, who has his own brand of cycle helmets, was seen in a dark coat and jeans.

Mr Boardman later said on Facebook that he didn’t wear a helmet because it "discourages people from riding a bike" and "you are as safe riding a bike as you are walking".

But more than 300 viewers complained he was being irresponsible for not wearing a helmet, particularly as the segment was shown as children were getting ready for the school run.

Viewer John Stimpson wrote: "Chris Boardman wearing No helmet and riding in black jacket and jeans. For an item on cycling safety you can’t get more stupid."

Another viewer, Benjamin Holden, added: "Not only is he not wearing a helmet but he’s also wearing dark clothing in stark contrast to the presenter who is appropriately dressed in high a visibility jacket. For a so called ‘hero’ of cycling he is setting an extremely bad example!!!"

Rebecca Townson said: "His comments make me so angry. A friend of ours had a serious bike accident and he was told if he hadn’t been wearing his helmet he would’ve been killed.

"His helmet was smashed up. My husband came off once and cracked his helmet. If we all took Chris Boardman’s advice, that would’ve been his head. The man is a fool!!!"

Viewer Charles Thody said: "Unbelievable! No helmet and dark clothing – get real Mr Boardman!! Lack of respect from me I’m afraid."

Colin Field was furious that his children had seen the piece before school and wrote: "So Mr Boardman will have no problem refunding me for the Boardman branded helmet I wear?

"His argument based on general accident statistics is nonsensical and sends a much more dangerous message to children.

"I have just spent 10 minutes explaining his argument to my three daughters who now question safety and feel less sure about being safe on a bike. Well done Chris, you idiot."

Viewer Lou Lessiter added: "I’m a normal cyclist, I wear normal clothes, I also wear a helmet! Enough said, I now think you’re a bigger idiot than I did before! You have lost all credibility & respect as has the BBC for allowing you air time!"

 

LMAO… ignorant self-righteous fuckwits, every last one of them.

I hope he – a highly decorated British hero of competitive cycling – just tells them all to fuck off. Bunch of massive cockwombles.

Mr Boardman explained his reason for not wearing a helmet on the BBC Breakfast Facebook page.

He said: "It’s a very long answer and more time than we’ve got here, but it discourages people from riding a bike. You are as safe riding a bike as you are walking.

"Statistically you are much safer than going in your own bathroom and you don’t wear a helmet there.

"There is absolutely nothing wrong with helmets, but it’s not in the top 10 things you can do to keep safe.

"We’re going to look at all those things, but for me I want bikes to be for normal people in normal clothes.

"About 0.5 per cent of people wear helmets in the Netherlands and yet it’s the safest country in the world and there’s a reason for that."

In a post on the British Cycling website he added: "People get very passionate about helmet use – or the lack thereof – but most people don’t get to the next, critical steps to ask themselves, why?

"Why do I feel the need to wear a helmet and high visibility clothing? What is it that scares me so much that I feel the need to wear what amounts to body armour? And even more critically, is this the place I want to live?

"People wear helmets and high vis as they feel it’s all they can do to keep themselves safe. It shows just how far away Britain is from embracing cycling as a normal and convenient form of transport."

Well, that’s close enough…  but it won’t be good enough for those who are wedded to their pathetic ideology of mindless elfin safety, Useful idiots, one and all.

Perhaps they’ve never heard of (or lack the brains to grasp) Risk Compensation?

Motorists may also alter their behavior toward helmeted cyclists. One study by Walker in England found that 2,500 vehicles passed a helmeted cyclist with measurably less clearance (8.5 cm) than that given to the same cyclist unhelmeted (out of an average total passing distance of 1.2 to 1.3 metres).[23] The significance of these differences has been re-analysed by Olivier.[24] See also slides 40-45 in for further analysis by Olivier of the data from the Walker study.[25]

In 1988 Rodgers re-analysed data which supposedly showed helmets to be effective and found both data errors and methodological weaknesses. He concluded that in fact the data showed "bicycle-related fatalities are positively and significantly associated with increased helmet use" and mentioned risk compensation as one possible explanation of this association.[26]

I think, therefore I am… inclined to think this is total bollocks

Hark at the latest round of policy-based evidence-making from the Nanny Statists..

image

Health professionals will be able to calculate a patient’s "brain age" based on their weight, exercise habits, cholesterol levels and alcohol intake to see if their lifestyle is affecting their risk of developing diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Oh really? How convenient that the government’s pet niggles about our national stubbornness in the face of their whining about diet, exercise and drinking that they now find themselves able to assert that one of the most ignominious of endings awaits anyone who doesn’t subscribe to their narrow and flawed recipe for ‘good living’ .

Scary.

Utter bollocks more like.

And here’s the actual tragedy… what if they are actually right this time, but we’re so sick and tired of listening to their whiny nagging bullshit, we’re not listening at all any more?

Meh.

Teh stupid.. it burns

And by ‘teh stupid’ obviously, I mean ‘teh diversity’.

The offender, described as black or Asian, 5ft 8in tall and wearing a dark hooded top

Tell me it ain’t so. In fact, tell me you think the offender was anything other than a Muslim.

And tell me this… would you honestly affix a poppy to your car if you live or work in a ‘diverse’ area? And run the risk of one of these nutbags vandalising your car (or worse, tampering with it) because of the poppy?

I wouldn’t.
