    "just following orders" has become the street gag du jour.

    The latest twist to this is the bizarre cooked-up controversy concerning John Reid and Paxman. For those who haven't followed this, in a preamble to an interview Paxman described Reid as 'Labour's attack dog'. Reid thereupon refused to answer any questions until Paxman took back this 'insult'. Reid's reasoning? Paxman was only so describing him because of his 'Glasgow accent'.

    I can't help but think that this whole thing has been cynically stage-managed by Labour to show that they too have members of a 'victim' group on their front bench.

    More Westminster trivia, while the Sun adds gipsies to the list of viciously scapegoated ethnic minorities in this ugly, ugly pre-election campaign.

    it was argued in such a smug way. that guy is labour's attack dog, always there ready to cover all bases when every other mp is having dinner or with the kids, he just knew at that moment he could get away with it is how it seemed to me. it was weak as fuck.

    it's like suggesting john prescott is a socialist because he's got a working class accent.
    reid is a bruiser, he is perfectly prepared to fight dirty and attempting to put the squeeze on the bbc is i am sure some none too subtle plan to make it easier to get away with further unpleasant comments during the election.
    i don't think we are even close to the lows this election may reach

    Sounds like an appropriate thread for this:

    Facebook removes post about a totally legit story on land fraud that was committed against Palestinians by an Israeli investment company on grounds of "hate speech".

    What a bunch of cunts.

    (Could equally well have gone in the 'psy-ops' thread, I suppose.)
