The Incredibly Talentless Patrick Wintour 251


It is amazing just how far you can get with the right family connections plus a slavish devotion to licking the arse of the powers that be. Ladies and gentleman, I give you Patrick Wintour, as talentless a piece of servile scum as ever disgraced the once fine profession of journailsm.

Here we have quite possibly the worst piece of political journalism in British history. Even given that it is supposed to be a puff piece by someone as openly critical of New Labour as Himmler was of Hitler, it is pathetic. What information precisely is it meant to convey?

http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/wintour-and-watt/2010/mar/26/alistair-darling-gordon-brown

The astonishing thing is that the completely intellect free Wintour is actually the political editor of the Guardian. I get so angry about the Guardian because it was once – within my lifetime – truly a great newspaper.

I offer £100 cash to anyone who can show me a piece of genuine journalism by Wintour – and to make it fair, commenters on the blog can vote whether it is genuine or not. On the debit side, allow me m’lud to enter this atrocious Blair apologia:

Tony Blair to tell Chilcot inquiry: war stopped Saddam building WMDsFormer PM expected to tell inquiry that without military action Saddam would have built WMD using the team of scientists he had assembled for the task

http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/jan/29/tony-blair-wmd-saddam-hussein

Not a single word of scepticism about the bonkers Blair narrative from Wintour.

In fact, I should be fascinated to know if anyone can unearth any evidence that lickarse Wintour has ever asked any New Labour politician a sensibly critical question.

Why precisely is Wintour’s £220k a year salary and expenses paid by the C P Scott trust and not by New Labour?

    dreoilin & others: I think the extreme sites you’re rather visiting (they make me feel too sick, myself) are the modern day equivalent of Bedlam. You know, where people used to visit to see tortured souls writhe and howl.

  • technicolour

    Sorry, didn’t mean to imply you were like the people who visited Bedlam, though I’m sure you’d have done the people in it good.

  • Arsalan

    Zionist keep saying “We’re not so bad, because we haven’t killed all of them yet”, but the reason they haven’t killed all of them yet is they need Palestinians for slave labour and replacement parts such as Kidneys.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/8165607.stm

    Have you noticed Larry keeps shouting Kidneys at other people to accuse them of Anti-Semitism.

    He doesn’t do it with me because I’m linking to Zionists news agencies such as the BBC and the New York times.

    If the Israeli government wants people to stop accusing it of kidney theft they should stop stealing Kidneys.

  • Arsalan

    And something else that we learnt from this thread about Larry and his girl friends.

    They all attacked Islam and Muslims on this thread.

    I don’t mean attacking people like us who hate Zionism.

    They attacked all Muslims, they attacked the Prophet of Islam. And then they scream Anti-Semitism and Jew hater at every opportunity.

    And when I pulled them up on this, all of them claimed to be atheists who hate all religions.

    and then made fun of Christianity.

    These bastards are confused. Do they think we will over look their slander against the Mohummed pbh the Prophet of God because they insult Jesus PBH the Prophet of God too?

    Do these Morons think we will over look their insults against the 1/4 of the planet who are Muslim if they follow it up with an insult on the 1/3 of the planet who are Christian?

    And then all of them claimed that they are all Atheist, well I knew that already. I have stated many times here that Zionism has nothing to do with Judaism. I have always said Zionism is a

    branch of Nazism.

    Some people say the Zionist ideology is a plagiarism of Nazism.

    It is in fact the other way around.

    Nazis copied Zionism. The Nazis replaced

    Palestine with the father land. Replaced Jews with Germans, replaced Arabs as the population fit for extermination with Jews.

    Zionism and Nazism are the same, only a few of the terms have been changed.

  • arsalan

    That is why I think Craig is wrong to join the Libs.

    If they sack a Barones for complaining about Kidney theft, what chance has Craig.

    So what will happen if Craig Joins. Will he remain silent every time the Israelis are caught steeling Kidneys, money laundering, stealing passports, spying on allies and selling secrets to enemies , using children as human shields etc etc etc.

    Or will he do all their donkey work for them, grant them legitimacy in the eyes of the left during elections, and then sack or sideline him as soon as he says something against Israel?

    I would say, it is better to be a no body, than an evil somebody.

    Libs are a Zionist party, Non-Zionists who join grant them legitimacy.

  • dreoilin

    tech,

    I don’t spend long at those sites, they do my head in. The combination of ignorance and arrogance appalls me. There’s a lot of racism too. Suggesting shooting illegal (Mexican) immigrants at the border and leaving their bodies there to ‘rot as a warning’ is fairly typical.

    I have visited the (modern equivalent of) Bedlam but not to look-see. More as a help to the lay chaplain. It’s an education. I have great difficulty in deciding whether mental or physical pain causes the greater suffering, and that is why modern forms of torture (while producing less blood) make me shiver. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed appears to be a mental wreck and there were numerous suicide attempts in Guantanamo (no doubt now continuing in Bagram.)

    I don’t know if you’ve noticed but that guy who burned down his house and then flew his plane into the local IRS building in Austin, Texas, has not been labelled a terrorist. He was not a Muslim.

  • Larry from St. Louis

    dreoilin – of course you don’t spend equivalent time on the freak sites in your own country.

    How’s the reunification effort going?

    And what’s it like being subject to Christianity, specifically the Pope?

  • technicolour

    Since Jesus said ‘turn the other cheek’ Arsalan, I guess you’re encouraged to ignore them? At least, when it comes to childish written insults, surely. The God/ess, if out there, is surely above them.

    dreoilin: the US youtube comments are enough for me. I tend to forget that only 50 years ago it was apartheid there.

    This Muslim v Christian paradigm is, as Larry would put it, batshit crazy. But I think one more ‘innocent’ reason that the guy wasn’t labelled a terrorist was because he was acting alone? The Earth Liberation Front are seen by the FBI as terrorists, despite never actually having killed anyone.

    Meanwhile what happened to the bloke who went mad at the US army HQ, if he did indeed go mad? Where do these stories go?

  • Clark

    Arsalan and Mary,

    thanks for the links.

    Arsalan,

    I think it’ll take more than Clegg to keep Craig quiet, but I suppose we’ll see.

    Dreoilin,

    best wishes to you.

    My ex’s family had a friend who was a long- retired UK spy, who since died in his 90’s. When I mentioned to him that I was thinking about becoming a Muslim, he replied that in his opinion, the religion just before Islam was a much better one.

    I mention this in case anybody had the impression that UKIS trollism is a new, post-War on Terror phenomenon. Anybody who believes the smokescreen that the UK establishment was not in support of the foundation of the state of Israel, should take note of what this Troll, who was active as a spy in the two world wars, thought of Islam.

    The immediate predecessors to Islam were, idol worship in Arabia, sun-worship in Persia, Jesus-worship pbuh in Rome, and polytheism in India etc.

  • technicolour

    dreoilin: Mental torture or physical torture, either are incredible to contemplate; more incredible still is the fact they are now openly and freezingly discussed in memos and reports and mainstream columns. What happened after the outcry over Bruce ‘torture the children’ Anderson, I wonder. Nothing, possibly?

    A report from the EDL says they are now going after trade unionists as well; any memories there? I remember old people in Germany saying that they simply ‘didn’t know’ about the Nazis. We don’t have that excuse.

  • Anonymous

    “When I mentioned to him that I was thinking about becoming a Muslim, he replied that in his opinion, the religion just before Islam was a much better one.”

    I think he was suggesting that you stay where you were rather than convert to Islam or one of its predecessors – you dolt!

  • technicolour

    anno: perhaps some people just don’t feel drawn to a patriarchal religion which tells them what to do.

  • anno

    Fulano asked about Rory Stewart. Like the afore-mentioned spy, Stewart is a fully paid up spy of this generation. His value to the Tories is that he knows the UKIS establishment’s 100 year forward plan. His presence as such an obvious spy trying for parliament, tells me that the powers that be are planning a long term swing to Tory rule, like Norwich North. Dismore, Blears and Straw can all proceed to ennoblement for their services to dismantling the reputation of Great Britain.

    I also received confirmation of my opinion about the election result by listening to Tony Blair reading from a script which had been written by the likes of Patrick Wintour, in exactly his style. Guaranteed that if Blair presents a good case for New Labour, because he is an absolute liar, you have to reverse it. The result of the election will be a crunching Tory win. Then the fat bankers can slowly buy up and re-capitalise this country under the miracle saviour Tories.

    On another post, Mark Golding asked about the future of UK foreign policy. Rory Stewart is your man. The froth of illuminati madness shimmers in his eyes. Destiny is engraved on his face like Hitler’s. His speech, ‘ all I want to do is be of service to my country ‘ like Lawrence of Arabia, is the speech of Shaytan. Be very careful about this man.

  • Arsalan

    Zionism was invented by racist Antisemitism who wanted to isolate Jews from themselves.

    They wanted to make a Jewish homeland, as a place where countries can permanently exile their Jewish populations from themselves.

    It really has more to do with hated of Jews than hatred of Muslims because the first countries proposed as Jewish states were not Muslim countries.

    The UK offered Uganda as a homeland. They planned to slaughter all the blacks, to turn it in to a land with out a people for a people without a land.

    The Nazi Germans proposed doing the same thing in Madagascar.

    After the defeat of the Khilafah, they chopped it up in to little bits and proposed Palestine as the Jewish homeland. The UK disarmed the Palestinians, heavily armed a bunch of Zionists so the Zionists can turn the heavily populated Palestine in to a land without people for a people without a land.

    Yes you are right this stuff has been going on for a long time. But Muslims are not the only victims. Australia, Canada, New Zealand and America all had their populations exterminated so people from Europe in general and the UK in particular can go over there claiming, “I am going to a land without people”.

    With the greatest of respect, mon vieux, you haven’t understood my argument.

    This country has a religion. You think that you don’t have a religion, but you do.

    It is: 1/ Sin has been abolished.2/ God’s asleep. 3/ Do good, but dont complain if you suffer as a consequence if you do wrong and get discovered. That’s your religion and you believe in it, even though it was invented for you by the patriarchs of the British establishment.

    You follow the patriarchs to the letter. The patriarchs of the religion opposite to my religion serve the devil.The patriarchs of my religion serve God, the Living Creator, Controller and All-Seer of human beings. Easy.

  • arsalan

    Anno, if he was still alive maybe you should have said, “the religion just before Islam was Islam, because Jesus never worshipped himself”

    You can really state the same thing for all of the religions you listed.

    Jesus wasn’t a Christian as he never worshipped Christ(himself). he worshipped God alone(Islam).

    Moses wasn’t a Jew because he never followed the Talmud, instead he followed the laws sent down by God(Islam). Zorastas never worshipped fire, instead he worshipped God alone.

    And even the older Hindu scriptures forbid polytheism, call on Monotheism and state the last Prophet will come from Arabia, be named Mohummed, have a mother named Amina and a father named Abdullah.

    So he can look at the religion that was there before, and if he is sincere about following it he would follow the part of the Bible where Jesus talks of the Prophet that will come to next. And he would follow it and except that Prophet pbh.

  • technicolour

    With even greater respect, anno, you have absolutely no idea of my views on, or definition of, sin. If I believed in a God, I would not, in fact, picture him/her/it as permanently ‘asleep’, though I can see they might need some time off. I’m not sure about the last bit; are you referring to hypocrisy?

  • Arsalan

    Has anyone else noticed what I wrote about the timings of Larry’s posts?It isn’t possible for someone from St. Louis to post them. Because St’ Louis is -6 gmt.

    It would mean he was posting at 5:30 AM?

    If he was in St Louis we would expect some post times to be 1 AM 2 Am and 3 Am GMT which would be 7 pm 8 pm and 9 pm GMT. If anything his post timings indicate he is 2 hours ahead of us.

    Meaning Israel!

    I can’t have been the only one to have noticed it!

    Everyone knows where America is and where Israel is, and that the Sun rises from the East.

  • Arsalan

    Oh maybe not everyone. Not Larry and his girl friends. Otherwise they would have posted at more believable times.

  • technicolour

    You’re quite possibly right Arsalan, although this blog gets so obsessive I wouldn’t be that surprised at someone posting at 5.30 am. I’m sure I’ve woken up in the small cold hours thinking ‘yes, but…’

  • dreoilin

    Stephen,

    I’ve gone to your link. I’m afraid I’m not quite sure why you’re referring me to it.

    “I think one more ‘innocent’ reason that the guy wasn’t labelled a terrorist was because he was acting alone?” –technicolour

    Not sure. Timothy McVeigh is referred to as an American terrorist, and that’s the title of the book about him.

    “Meanwhile what happened to the bloke who went mad at the US army HQ, if he did indeed go mad? Where do these stories go?”

    Good question. The general lack of follow up (unless it’s about the McCanns …) is most irritating. Nidal Malik Hasan is due to be tried for multiple murder in a military court. Obama warned Americans against jumping to conclusions about his motives, but he’s been called a “jihadist” all over US blogs.

    Clark,

    I’m delighted to see you back. You were gone for a while, and I thought it might be permanent. Best wishes to you too!

    “A report from the EDL says they are now going after trade unionists as well; any memories there?”–tech

    Where? I hope you’re not on about my age again (and it’s not 78). 🙂

    By the way, you were half-right about the cat — fabulous (aesthetically) and very loyal pal who was with me for 18 years, died of cancer in 2005. BTW, male or female, I also had you pegged as NUJ. I suppose we all have vague mental images of who we’re talking to.

    Ok, me gone now.

  • dreoilin

    Arsalan,

    You could well be right about the timing. But he could also be on night shift.

    gone!
