I HAVE been sent a link to Paul Joseph Watson’s YouTube channel, Summit News. It has 1.7million subscribers. In all probability I would not be on message for all of his New Right views and I gather he has recently been banned from Facebook and Instagram. Describing himself as a fighter for freedom of speech, his reflections on the recent general election are the antidote to so much that we have been witnessing.
Here, then, are some of the sayings he collected before and after the poll. Even better is the TV version. It provides fuller attributions and I have provided a link at the bottom of the page.
‘I’ve got a hunch that it is all going extremely well, and I‘ve got a hunch that the experts elsewhere may just have got it wrong.’ Jeremy Corbyn to the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg shortly before the recent general election.
‘We won the argument, but I regret we didn’t convert that into a majority for change.’ Jeremy Corbyn, after Labour’s worst election defeat since 1935.
‘There we are! That is an absolutely extraordinary result!’ Krishnan Guru-Murthy of Channel 4 News, announcing the exit poll result: CON 368 LAB 191.
‘ . . . and to see working class people caring about Boris Johnson. They are shooting themselves in the face. It’s disgusting!’ Posh-girl, poor-me, condescending, jumped-up, self-entitled, latte-sipping, London-Bubble brat who added: ‘. . . and I wish him the worst. I wish him a horrible death. I plan to work in the NHS. I plan to be a doctor.’
‘It’s a myth that Labour has lost the working class.’ Ash Sarkar, journalist and communist activist.
‘Hi, I’m Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party. My pronouns are he/him.’
‘Alan Partridge is ill-informed and ignorant and, therefore he is a Conservative and a Brexiteer.’ Multi-millionaire luvvie Steve Coogan (aka Alan Partridge) to a giggling Cathy Newman of Channel 4 News.
‘There goes the neighbourhood.’ Hugh Grant, after all the candidates he campaigned for during the election campaign failed to win a seat.
‘No, there goes your credibility. The British people listened to your democracy-wrecking garbage and told you to f*ck off.’ Piers Morgan.
‘BBC exit polls predict Tories to take 70+ seats. If so – a victory of the old over the young, racists over people of colour, selfishness over the planet. Scotland will leave the UK. However it does not feel right compared to on-the-ground.’ Paul Mason, formerly Economics Editor of Channel 4 News and BBC Newsnight.
‘Special congratulations to older voters who went Tory, f*cking over the younger generations for decades and guaranteeing them a brexit they hate because you like the man with the funny hair who isn’t afraid to say those racist things you enjoy.’ James Felton, Guardian writer.
‘Let me be gracious. All the people celebrating now are the most entitled, embittered, sneering nasty selfish racist foul f*ckwits. I’d still rather be with decent people, however gutted they are, than be with you for a second.’ Mark Steel, broadcaster and journalist.
And finally . . .
‘Brits went to the polls and told the hard-Left, institutionally anti-Semitic, Brexit-blocking, identity politics-obsessed, climate-change hysterics of the Labour Party, led by terrorist-sympathising, socialist simpleton Jeremy Corbyn, to get stuffed.’ Sky News Australia.
