As each day goes by more and more conservative voices on twitter suffer from “the purge”. I concede that some folks purged are nutjobs but most, such as Donald Trump, who the bookies rate,with very good reason, as the favourite to be the next President, have a right to be heard. Would twitter consider 2024 to be a fair race if it barred one candidate from tweeting? The banning of Trump set a precedent and since then more and more folks have been shut out for questioning election results, vaccine policy or indeed a wide range of aspects of the Big State liberal agenda.

For some reason right wing media darling and GB News regular Sophie Corcoran has deleted the tweet below. I just can’t quite put my finger on what glaring gem of historical ignorance she is trying to hide as Ash makes a perfectly fair comment about Word War One quoting from the Sassoon poem Attack.

Nope it is not a suicide bomber in a car packed with explosives. Ash would view them as being a lone wolf, mentally ill or part of a Neo Nazi conspiracy. When Ash Sarkar refers to a “radicalised driver” she means someone trying to get to work to earn their daily bread, trying to get their kids to school or their cancer ridden mum to hospital who finds their road blocked by a group of middle class, invariably white, protestors and tries to haul them off the road as the Police refuse to act. As ever Ash can say what she likes on the selfish nutters in Insulate Britain or any other matter but every time she does she exposes how folks like her, rarely not appearing as an “expert” pundit on the BBC, are just so woefully out of touch with how the rest of us think.

If you want to watch TV news in the UK, your choice is essentially the BBC, ITV, Sky or Channel 4 “fake” News. All were overtly anti-Brexit, anti-Trump and are left-leaning – the presenters do not hide their views. On a range of issues including the bogus religion of global warming, the demands of the Trans community, the “largely peaceful” riots of BLM and the need to mask up everywhere and not challenge lockdown, the broadcast media sings from the same hymn sheet. For many of us who supported Brexit, don’t want our teenage daughter sharing a post basketball shower with a six foot girl with a beard and a cock called Barry, who – like just under half the Yanks – supported Trump or who might have voted Tory last time (apologies to folks here in Wrexham, I do regret it), there is no news broadcaster for us. Andrew Neil will soon launch GB News.

Of course she can say what she likes. But equally I hope that I am still allowed to point out that she gets a logic fail with her Tom Moore tweet. To give Ms Sarkar enormous credit, she did not start off with the sort of cliched 140 character eulogies which almost every other celeb, journalist and politician sent out, meaningless piffle designed to make them look good rather than to provide actual comfort to the late Captain Moore’s family.

Earlier this year, a BLM/ANTIFA demonstration in Washington DC turned ugly, stores were being burned and looted, a church was attacked and a British DJ tweeted out about the demonstrators “shoot them.” Was she fired?

Yesterday I reviewed how one fellow on Twitter who was a self-confessed shareholder in a con of a company I continue to expose, [email protected] Capital (SYME), had responded. He did so by fantasising on Twitter about killing me, about me being bankrupted and by suggesting that my wife had slept with another man to produce our one-month-old daughter, as you can see HERE. Normally I let these things go but just now and again when my family is roped in for abuse I complain to Twitter.

I do not agree with the politics of communist journalist Ash Sarkar and she says some remarkably silly and insensitive things. But, as a believer in freedom, I defend to the utmost her right to say and write as she pleases, just as I defend other figures such as Sasha Johnson of BLM. Her right is to offend me with her ludicrous views. I also have a lot of sympathy for Ash for the way that she is attacked.

The Guardian columnist and perennial guest of the BBC, Ash Sarkar, again seeks out controversy with the tweet below in which she describes Britain as a “cursed island”. I wonder if the Britain of 2020 is really that terrible? Where would Ash describe as less cursed? Iran? Turkey? Russia? Overall, while we can all find fault with Britain, it also has so many redeeming features. I do not identify as British but as vaguely Irish and in so many ways I wish that I lived in Greece but I am always struck, as I drive across England, of just how gorgeous the countryside is. For that alone, it cannot rank as “cursed”. But there is more in Ash’s tweet.

Yesterday, the Labour party sacked Rebecca Long Bailey from its Front Bench as she endorsed an article, in the little read online rag the Independent, by an actress who thinks we care what celebs think and which contained a clear antisemitic trope. Yet many in Labour are rushing to her defence, including Guardian columnist Owen Jones and the Corbynite journalist Ash Sarkar whose tweet is below.
