Three cheers for free speech!

If you weren’t watching the BBC’s Question Time on Thursday, you didn’t miss much; questions about whether the young and poor should pay to maintain the lifestyles of the rich and old, and about whether the police should have shot unarmed Mark Duggan were deflected by Tory Nadine Dorries and Lib Dem Norman Baker – lamely, but that’s all they need to do with Dimbleby in the chair to protect them.

Dorries reckoned Mark Duggan was seen with a gun in his hand and threw it away but my information is that no witness actually said this. If so, then she should have been corrected but wasn’t – that’s the level of information you get on QT these days.

Then they moved on to immigration, and we got the wonderful speech by the lady in the YouTube clip above. She might not be the most sophisticated speaker ever to grace our screens but I, for one, don’t care a jot!

She made a point that Dorries, Baker, and particularly Dimbleby – look at the way he tried to shut her down – didn’t want aired: That this government is using the non-issue of Romanian and Bulgarian immigration as cover for its real work – destroying the National Health Service and the welfare state in order to force poor people to take out inadequate insurance against poor health and unemployment instead.

Bravo, madam!

Let’s see more people doing the same on future editions of the programme.

The Establishment (including the BBC) want to keep you quiet, so just go out and make sure these people fail.

    Dumbelby is well past his use by date. As for his employers the BBC? We need someone who’s not on the BBC payroll to host this programme, the BBC are much to close to government to retain any objectivity or the remotest shred of independence. Like the government, I don’t think the BBC can be trusted. Not once have they mentioned the 4000 suicides, or the bedroom tax screw up. What can be done? First sign the e petition demanding a £75 reduction in licence fees.

      It’s entitled, cut licence fee by £75 per year, there are others but I think 75 quid a year is sustainable and programming will improve with more objective questioning and less Feckin repeats.

    Very, very brave of her! Excellent, ordinary people telling the truth. Where can we sign the petition to get a reduction in the licence fee? It’s a start!

      Look on EPetitions if you have problems leave a message here and I’ll get the code number. It’s Government E petitions. Joe.

    They want to blame the destruction of our NHS on the immigrants. Semi off topic, if I do have a problem with immigrants it’s that they drive down wages for everyone as they work for less. What is needed is strong trade unions again. One person who steps out of line is just going to be made unemployed, but if the whole workforce acted if any one of their members was touched, the bosses could only punish anyone if the workforce agreed with it.

    Gosh, listening to the previous comments we’re almost back in the good old days of the 1970’s. What really needs to be done is to scrap party politics and for MP’s to actually represent their constituents views, not voting to whip but with their minds.. Combine this with cutting back on the waste of public money on public office and officials allowances both in parliament county and local councils and the country would be awash with money. Why have we got 52 Police forces in this country? they are totally inefficient and do not communicate, beside the fact that that 52 chief constables are completely unnecessary! I could go on and on, it’s not rocket science just common sense!!
