BBC unveils George Orwell in bronze, outside their fake-news outpost. How post... modern of them. Especially considering the quote;
The quotation is from a proposed preface to Animal Farm, which was never used: "If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear."
Jennings says they're "an interesting and quite a challenging selection of words for a public service broadcaster".
He says: "It's both Orwell talking to the political journalists of the BBC, and it's the BBC expressing what it stands for to the general public."
Y'havin' a laugh? Lies about Syria, lies about.... Keep all dissent mild and manufactured and -- bing -- no right to tell about anything genuinely in the public interest and too really controversial.
Not close to a 'public' broadcaster.
Sentencing, Judge Nicholls said: 'Mr Rooke puts the basis of his defence under Section 15 of the Terrorism Act, effectively asking the court to find the BBC is a terrorist organisation and that if he continues to pay them he himself is committing a criminal offence. 'I have explained to Mr Rooke even if I were to accept his evidence I would be unable to find a defence.'
Speaking outside court, Rooke said he was 'pleased' with the outcome, 'all things considered'.
'Why George Orwell is returning to the BBC' ?
All about my generation and while at it, let's go; 'I'mmm, so boooored with the U.. S... A.... but what can I... doooo?'
So why is it all the agit-o pop-ites are such -- let's say it -- softie-socialists? Aka, BBC employees at the top. A whole generation drugged and dancing, turned away from the troubles. Don't want to do self-righteous but what a shocking state. Name one old rocker saying something good?
Oh that one out of Pink F on Palestine - anymore?
Know this somewhat first-hand chatting with a few notables in the street. Came away sneered at and bemused at their political intransigence.
The politics of, all the old punks, is apathy in the UK. Which considering the rip-roaring proclaimed opposite beginnings -- a curious outcome? Or is it?
Baby boomers have been the stagnating generation, passing on to their nips; "let it be, let it be, let it be... speaking...". The very lazy bones rock they trampled on, is now the neon signpost to live by.
The understandable loss of wider hope and hunker down. Bucks and Becks without a single voice saying otherwise. Nae one?
Same as, the even more manufactured 60's lot. Hippies bought off. Ran on into the enterprises, benefiting from the post-acid party. "Up you come, here's a corporation and here's our...."
With this, agreed sounds of silence.
'I use... the NME...' Let's have look eh?
To nab quote to fit on this, would be; 'I want to say one word to you. Just one word ... Plastics'.
And here be why the brief sort-of outrage upstarts became a big coke-sprayed fruit cake with icing. Money talks and bullshit walks.
Me, mildly an irritant, read nowhere much, post. What to end on: They have to get us to lie. More lies, more power. One day, if no substantial resistance, a blinding crushing.
To those in the BBC and all echelons of influence, be brave, be human, come out -- and scream.
