Dark Side of the Star


I don't think I'm the only one who thinks that this front page stinks. A complaint should be made to the Press Complaints Commission so they can slap the wrists of Richard Desmond. Given that he doesn't feel much contrition over the smacked bum given to his other publication, The Express over the McCann story, as sales increased markedly while the soap opera was on, I doubt if he's bothered.

Defamation actions cases may be the new golf club, but it would nice if it could be shown that a Muslim TV Licence payer had sufficient locus standi to bring a class action. Hmmm.

The issue of the BBC is not the point here. Us and Them is the forerunner to burning of mosques.

Us And Them"

Us and Them
And after all we're only ordinary men
Me, and you
God only knows it's not what we would choose to do
Forward he cried from the rear
and the front rank died
And the General sat, as the lines on the map
moved from side to side
Black and Blue
And who knows which is which and who is who
Up and Down
And in the end it's only round and round and round
Haven't you heard it's a battle of words
the poster bearer cried
Listen son, said the man with the gun
There's room for you inside
Down and Out
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about
With, without
And who'll deny that's what the fightings all about
Get out of the way, it's a busy day
And I've got things on my mind
For want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died


(Waters, Wright) 1973

Thankfully we still live in a free country and the press are allowed to point out how the rest of us feel even if liberal/lefties like you don't like it. The fact is the BBC are scared of upsetting Muslims because they know how Muslims reach with violence to everything they don't like. Your mighty BBC has also admitted in the past that they wouldn't wish to upset the Muslims while not caring about Christians

1. What dou mean by 'Muslims reach'?
2. The post was not about the BBC's point as I mentioned.
3. The debate over BBC policy is not relevant here. You do not know what my views are on that subject. Please feel free to use conjrcture.
4. You do not answer the crucial question here: are YOU proud that this paper blatantly takes sides on behalf of US against THEM. If you don't understand how insidious this headline is, then please just stick to looking at tits.
