Subject: Censorship in the UK
Jay    1/23/2004 8:59:29 AM
No UK board, so I started the thread here, since it relates somewhat to the terrorist threat. Churchill in pre-WW2 speech..... "They are afraid of words and thoughts! Words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home, all the more powerful because they are forbidden. These terrify them. A little mouse, a little tiny mouse, of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic." Ironic, poor Winston must be spinning in his grave looking at some of what's going on in the land he saved from tyranny. Comments.......?

Can't you say pretty much anything you want, as long as it's politically correct? And aren't the BBC merely the public affairs arm of the thought police? >Ironic, poor Winston must be spinning in his grave looking at some of what's going on in the land he saved from tyranny.< Yeah, what's going on in France is a damn shame.

No, in the UK you have to agree with the muslims AS WELL AS the socialists and the political correctness mythologies. Churchill said, "democracy is the worst system - except all others." Churchill was quite right. Yes, the BBC has become a mere propaganda tool, furthering Labour Party spin and sucking up to the muslims. Did you know that the BBC had the editor of Searchlight hosting a programme last year? For those outside the UK, Redwatch was a newsletter by combat 18 which encouraged the reader to beat up those of the political left. Searchlight is a magazine by the Communist party which lists activities by right wing groups and like Redwatch, urges the reader to beat the members up. The editor of Searchlight is a former Communist Party activist.

In France and to a much greater extent, Britain, the government now has to get permission from the Ayatollah for certain things. (Take France on headscarfs) Thus, a man who is the unelected dictator for life of a hostile nation well outside the EU has influence over the way things are done in our countries.
