It seems you’re confronted with impatient fuckers at every turn these days. In shops, on the streets, on the roads. These self serving pricks are evereywhere. A load of narcissists frantically trying to get to where they want to go and god forbid anyone who gets in their way. You see they’re way more IMPORTANT than you and I and when they need to get somewhere (Christ) they need to get there NOW!!!
Only yesterday I was involved in a minor altercation with some bright spark, who took it upon himself to put his foot down the second the lights changed whilst I was in the middle of crossing the road. To cut a long story short there was lot of profanities exchanged and much finger pointing, you heard (FINGER POINTING) this shit got serious. The culprit looked like Barry from Eggheads and probably couldn’t fight his way out of a wet echo but what a potty mouth he had on him.
Anyway, this all started because he was an overly impatient idiot who couldn’t wait a couple of seconds to let me cross. I’m an easy going fella (well most of the time) and I could understand him having a go if I was inconsiderately strolling over the road and deliberately taking my time but I wasn’t. That’s what got under my skin the most. Potentially running over a fellow human being doesn’t count for nothing in this selfish world, not if it means losing out on a couple of precious seconds to your significant journey. Yeh I know there are exceptional circumstances, instances where people have genuine emergencies (your missus going into labour in the back-seat for example) but the majority of the time they’re off the fucking Tesco to pick up a few last minute bits or late picking their sprogs up. People need to take a minute and chill out. Let’s face it In a 100 years time no one will give a shit anyway…
Good piece by Monbiot who by default includes The Guardian as one of the media agencies that perpetuate this circle of lies and hate. The BBC prides itself and boasts of its supposed ‘journalistic impartiality, balance and lack of bias’ - it’s a lie that can be proven by any objective person who has watched the BBC News and current affairs programmes over the past 30 years. Whether that’s the miner’s, docker’s or firefighter’s strike (indeed any industrial action), the poll tax, eco campaigners, inner city riots (indeed any form of political defiance) wars in Northern ireland, the Falklands, The Balkans, Iraq, Afghanistan, reporting on conflicts in Libya, Iran, North Korea, Egypt, Palestine, Ukraine, Syria…..wherever the latest threat is to ‘our way of life and values’ – the BBC claims to speak for ‘us’ – they use the collective ‘we’ and ‘our’ because ‘we’ all subscribe to the same concept of national cohesion and ‘British Values’ don’t we?
The way the BBC and the rest of the establishment media especially on TV has covered the Scottish referendum is only the latest example of how the state propagandists react when their paymasters and cosy corporate interests are threatened. Yet to say this is to be classed as a ‘conspiracy crank’ and so the BBC reports on itself in the third person, whether that’s Savile or Scotland, any accusation that the BBC’s journalism is tainted by bias and a pre-ordained agenda is ridiculed as the mad witterings of paranoid leftys and 911 weirdos.
Yet, ANY examination of a single BBC News report will demonstrate how manipulated their coverage is – the tone and body language of the presenter, the choice of interviewees, the attitude of ‘reporters’ who don’t ‘report’ but ‘comment’ the selective vox pops and polls, the sheer hypocrisy of these desperate puppets as they put words into the mouth of say, the Queen (she’s not taking sides they say – isn’t she? says YOU!) the difference in the way Darling is questioned compared to Salmond.
The Scots are now seeing the BBC in its true colours, a state propagandist who time after time, year after year, decade after decade, plays to the tune of their licence fee, 6 figure salary stamping paymasters. Let’s hope, in Scotland atleast, it’s days are numbered.
