BBC has gone all weak at the knees at the news that Saint Vince Cable (blessings be upon him) will state tomorrow that “Capitalism kills competition”. Had to laugh at the almost religious fervour with which BBC poodles repeat “Capitalism kills…”.  I am sure we will hear MUCH more tomorrow. Chris Huhne, Vince Cable – enemies of freedom and liberty and worshipped by the BBC.

P.S. Does a bloated all powerful monopoly like the BBC “Kill competition”. Just asking……because the BBC won’t!

    So will the BBC admit that its website services are killing off local newspapers?

    Competition kills off the weak and leaves the strong, of course the Guardian newspaper would have gone a long time ago were it not for state funding.

      The Guardian is as necessary as the air they breathe to the typical beeboid. It is the mirror of their deepest needs and desires. It is above capitalism . It is life itself .I could go on and on with this rubbish much like a beeboid talking about capitalism.

    Cable’s intended speech is interpreted by Ms Wark as an indication that evil Murdoch’s plans for world domination are going to be thwarted by Red Vince. She got as moist as when indulging in a vigorous foursome with the McConnells.

    Our politico-media estate seems to have disappeared up each other’s respective orifices, like snakes consuming each other’s tails.

    I’m reading how the LabLead contender’s voting record should not be used to judge their hustings claims, and now that St. Vince’s utterings are just ra-ra material to please the faithful and give the likes of the BBC what they want to hear… and re-gurgitate.

    Er… what is the point of a democracy if all we are being served up is lies to keep tame media in line… especially when as far as I can make out it’s a vast amount of froth and bother over ex or minority bozos who were and have been resoundingly rejected.

    If Capitalism does eventually fall, it will fail because those at the very apex of power, ceased to create anything worthwhile anymore, and just sat on their laurels raking in big bucks from those conscripted to fianance their life styles.

    It will fail because the high and mighty cut themselves off from the cold harsh realities of this world, and issued diktats and pronouncements of how they are our Gods.

    It will fail because those purporting to represent us, will become ever greedier with power, failing to equate, that the we the minions beneath them, don’t wish to mirror their delusional saintly virtues.

    It will fail because those with the power attempt to dumb down the public at large, with third rate propaganda and ridiculously biased programming, of how their own overview of the World is above any criticism at all.

    So…….Lets differentiate between the eeeevil capitalists within our midst’s, and of course our beloved ever righteous State broadcaster, by dissecting the differences between the two from the items above….

      Good point.  Apologists for Communism always say that it’s a beautiful ideology that has been ruined by a few bad apples and if we did it properly we’d all live in peace and harmony (there’s a comment saying exactly that from some lunatic on Paul Mason’s blogpost from the other day).  But they never allow the same argument from the other side.


  6. Demon1001 says:

    I’m just perplexed that anyone could make such a statement.  How can anyone claim capitalism be the killer of competition when it is exactly the opposite of the truth?  I think it would be best for the Liberals for them to acknowledge that Mr Cable is under a bit of pressure, and that after a few months rest and recuperation he will be allowed back under the “Care in the Community” initiative.

    As far as the BBC goes, what a surprise that they don’t challenge such a stupid statement when it supports their little prejudices and biases.


    • Anthony Mace says:

      All the beboids claim it’s the bbc’s job to compete  against the commercial broadcasters don’t they ?
      And those nasty capitalists keep trying to stop the bbc from (unfairly) competing in the market place ,thus capitalism is killing (unfair) competion.

    Former BBC Sports Editor Mihir Bose  appearing on C4 News last night provided another possible reason for his resignation from the leviathon (besides re-location to Manchester). He was scornful of the shambles of Indian Commonwealth Games preparation which he regarded as an inevitable consequence of it being put in the hands of government & bureaucrats rather than responsibility being given to go-getting capitalists like those who run Indian cricket.

    Isn’t it about time David Cameron sacked Cable ? The man is a buffoon.


    • Roland Deschain says:

      He is, but it would bring down the coalition.  You and I might not care, but Dave would.


      • 1327 says:

        Exactly and if the coalition falls then Dave falls. Don’t forget most of his own MP’s (especially the new ones) dislike him and hold him responsible for almost losing an election that should have been a walk over.

        If you ask me St Vince is seeing how far he can push things and cause a little trouble at the same time. Time to move him to the Dept of Health with special responsibility for closing childrens hospitals 🙂

    I think I can see where Cable, Huhne et al are coming from, but they have got their terminology slightly amiss, deliberately perhaps, which is why Wark seemed to wet her pants at the prospect of putting the brakes on “capitalism”.

    What I think Cable is getting at is in restraining imperialistic and corporatist tendencies, not “capitalism”,  which in my view are nearly as bad as socialism in concentrating the earth’s wealth among a tiny few.  An economic system is only robust when everybody has a piece of the action.

    This seemed to go right over Wark’s head, particularly the bits where Huhne stressed the need to avoid monopolies (BBC anyone?).  Cable is essentially pro-competition and pro-capitalism, but put his views across in a way that seems agreeable to socialist BBC mindset.


  10. Backwoodsman says:

    When the bbc sees an oportunity to fire off the shoulder of some poor sap like st vince, with a little skillful manipulation to suit the words to the bbc narative, they rarely pass up on the chance. Just be thankful he didn’t mention the NOW or Coulson !


  11. Derek Buxton says:

    I do not believe Cable is pro capitalism, he is a stupid little man with a lot of money who loves power.  If governments would get their sticky little fingers out of the “free market” it would work as it has in the past. Regulation of any kind kills the market.  What is more Adam Smith said so and Cable did not understand.
    In this he is at one with the other rich brat, Huhne, both with lots of money but want to steal ours.  They should both be sacked but since Cameron gave them their jobs, it won’t happen, so he is as guilty as them.
