I can think of many terms for Angela Eagle, “dear” is not one. BBC hyping up the alleged “gaffe” by Cameron here. Note the casual use of the “Bullingdon Bully”….and the attempt to make something out of nothing.

    Fantastic coming from the Pressalot groper party and their  highlights such  as Nigel Griffiths picture book and the all wimmin short lists that only men can win! Eagle was very quiet  about this and all the other things like all the bulling/phone breaking  her lot got up to , but now she sees  a spotlight and cannot contain herself I feel a r5 doc with Smithy on sexism/porn/ dirty woodland creatures  with porn and the feminist ideal!  
    Also  some one should tell the beagle woman that picking on some one over their education and upbringing which they cannot help is bigoted !


  2. Roland Deschain says:

    It’s one of these non-stories which the BBC will fan as long as Labour tells it to. 

    So he said “calm down, dear”, echoing a catchphrase in an advert.  Big deal.  Wait till he calls someone “simples”.

    Quite – despising someone solely because they’re white, middle-class, male, and went to a public school in England was the one hate crime that Hattie never quite got round to putting on the statute books.

    …and as a PS I caught about two minutes of a phone-in hosted by Gameshow Nikk (yes, yes, Hippiepooter I know he’s Walter Winchell, Walter Cronkite and Gandhi rolled into one) where some femiharpie ‘comedienne’ was on. 

    In her stand-up she has a ‘hilarious’ line about her sister’s c*** (my asterisks, not hers), a ‘Brazilian’, and Hitler’s moustache but as soon as Genial John Gaunt calls her ‘dearie’ she takes a fit of the vapours and has to lie down and have her temples dapped with water of Cologne.

    Fetch the smelling salts, someone called a woman “dear”!

    Well, here’s my contribution:

    Liberty Bodice
    French knickers

    So stuff THAT lot in your Kayser Bonder outsize brassiere, and go and have a lie down, dear…

    Feigned outrage is spreading like a disease. I suppose DC will apologise eventually – paving the way for the next outrage. We cave in to everything.

    People are being stabbed, shot and God knows what else and yet, apparently, we’re all so sensitive to other people’s feelings these days.

    It’s a non event.

      I’m not falling over myself to defend Bullingdon, but when was the law passed that said only the wukn clawse (CF Bob Crow) were allowed to get drunk and make arses of themselves.


  7. It's all too much says:

    There is  no limit to the idiocy in PC behaviour or the ability of ‘victims’ to project faux outrage.  I once was in a ‘public sector’ meeting in the early 90’s where we couldn’t start the (very long and utterly pointless) agenda because a ‘femynist’ took exception to someone asking for the ‘master document’.  No one had ever even thought of this as a problem, but she managed to excite a virtual riot amongst the leftoid attendees who suddenly realised just how evil and opressive men are and felt compelled to support her patently loonie notion. 

    There was a full hour of ‘debate’ about the implications of this war crime, even though everyone had instantly agreed to call the offending script the ‘top copy’ to shut her up.  No it was turned into an act worthy of the BNP/Tories/General Franco/Pinochet/Reagan etc.  She was still offended days later.

    It was  nice to see how council (or more accurately my) money was being used wisely – 2 hour * 8 attendees at £30 per hour = £480.

    I think the next tory to be called a ‘toff’ or have his education / birth criticied should burst into tears, throw a tantrum, and call the commie swine a “Stalinist sympathise”r when demanding a full formal retraction.


    • John Horne Tooke says:

      I have been to meetings like that. I was in a meeting where someone said “its a traffic blackspot” All hell broke loose among the feminists . One of these “dear old ladies” then said we have to describe it as a “traffic hotspot”.  Without thinking I suggested that this cannot be right, it might offend people with acne.

       One femininist actually agreed with me. Humour was also banned from the public sector.


  8. pounce_uk says:

    I think you will find the real reason why Mz Eagle was offended is because being treated as a woman is against everything she stands for as a lesbian.

    Yup, she’s a chick who thinks she has a dick.


  9. hippiepooter says:

    Another TODAY ‘look, no hands’ job to get at Cameron.

    When Labour MP’s mocked a Tory MP’s cerebral palsy a few weeks ago, not only did TODAY and other BBC outlets not go into it too much, but they didn’t even mention it was Labour MP’s, they made out it was from across the House.

    TODAY really is doing what it can for May 5th.  Probably believes that the Coalition can’t hold as well and they’re readying themselves and the public for the next General.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if they start giving subliminal tips on how to conduct postal ballot fraud. 


    • matthew rowe says:

      Good post  Hippiepooter a timely reminder of the disgusting  double standards at work here ! even now  this incident and the non reaction at the ministry still gets me very heated !.


  10. cjhartnett says:

    Well said Hippiepooter.
    Besides Angela(how unlike her name she is!) and her harpie chums are all dear-look at their expenses-how much they have cost us as a nation-and how much time we have wasted over Hewitt,Harman,Cooper,Jowell and the ilk!


  11. Deborah says:

    I know I said it on the general thread but a press correspondent for the times on the Toady  explained that the Labour spinners were immediately contacting their chums as soon as the ‘Calm Down , dear’ words were out of Cameron’s mouth (ie before the fragrant Angela had left the chamber.  Well it is obvious who they went to by the amount of air time the beeboids have given it (and not once suggesting that Angela had a humour misfunction).  Even my local radio station has been discussing it.


  12. Grant says:

    I seem to remember some years ago a Labour MP called William Hague a foetus.

     I given up clicking “like”.  What a brilliant thread. This is what BBB-C is all about !  Not as funny as the myriad BBC “Edgy comedians” of course !


    • John Horne Tooke says:

      It was in fact Tony Banks (I actually liked his wit but not his politics)

      “Tony Banks will be remembered for his hilarious insults”

      “Bessie Braddock: Sir, you are drunk.
      Churchill: And you, madam, are ugly. But in the morning, I shall be sober.”


      • Demon1001 says:

        Lady Astor: “Winston, if you were my husband I’d put arsenic in your coffee”

        Churchill: “If you were my wife I’d drink it!”


  13. TheGeneral says:

    A few years ago Clare Short was on a BBC phone in . One female contributer said something Clare did not like and she shouted 
    ” You stupid woman “. The response from the BBC Presenter…..nothing,
    the BBC itself…..nothing. The story went no further and totally without comment.
    Obviously in the twisted minds of the BBC it is far worse to call a woman
    ” Dear” than “a stupid woman.”  
    The high standards of the BBC continue to be maintained… whose mind ?


  14. London Calling says:

    “Dear” is patronising, whilst “You Stupid Woman” is probably factually accurate on all counts. I guess the woman doesn’t mind being insulted but can’t bear to be patronised. Tells you a lot about what’s going on between the ears, and its not pretty.


  15. jeff says:

    Did you see the expression on Hattie Harmon’s face?
    The Beeb have been drooling over this silly non-story all day, but it was only a couple of weeks ago that dopey Jenny Murray introduced Woman’s Hour, using a cod ethnic accent as, “Dem bitches hour, innit”.
    Patronising and insulting to just about everyone and irritating to boot.


  16. Craig says:

    The huffing and puffing over the Great ‘Calm down dear!’ Scandal was already underway by the time of Wednesday’s ‘The World At One’.

    Martha Kearney described the Cameron-Eagle storm-in-a-very-very-small-teacup as “this extraordinary exchange”.

    First to huff was Radio 4’s impartiality-busting chief political correspondent Norman Smith, who said Labour were infuriated, mentioned the Bullingdon Club and ended (in a very serious tone) by saying “but privately one suspects though it may have seemed funny in the heat of the moment in retrospect Mr Cameron may yet come to regret the manner of his put-down.”

    Ed Balls echoed him, puffing “I thought it was pretty silly of him and he’ll regret it.” “It’s not the kind of language that sets a good example in the 21st Century”.

    Pathetic really.


    • Grant says:

      Looks like Balls wrote Smith’s script, surely not.

      I offer a bottle of 14 1/2 year old  ” Broon’s Revenge ” Irn Bru to the first correct answer to the question  ” How many Chief Political Correspondents ”  does the BBC  have  ?

      ( NB.   “Editors” don’t count )


      • My Site (click to edit) says:

        No idea, but they do seem to like school hols, so at any one time it’s a moving target.

        I think that whatever squad is on currently will have trouble spinning the press releases about the fragrant Angela’s turkey foot shot through and especially picking up post wedding.

        Must rather gall the miserable lady to discover what aspects of the human condition and male/female relationships seem to attract the majority of the population still.

        Maybe a well-funded commission could be established, with a vast comms budget (BBC PR free in complement) to show the public the error of their ways?


  17. cjhartnett says:

    Reckon Norman Smith is only his “nom de guff”…bet it`s Tarquin Templeton Smythe really!

    I thoght that the BBC had decommissioned all their so-called “Labour Correspondents” when Thatch was letting them listen to Joy Division up in norhtern uni refectories…yet here we are-only they are “Chief Political Sitting Bulls of this and Editors of that”-are there any normal jobbing hacks left for the cameras to love?

    May be worth while looking at a few Flanders, Mardells etc just to see how their job titles and pay grades changed over these fleeting few years…something like a Peston Scale of Puff and Privilege as an Index of 100 maybe?

    Ah no- the new “Labour Correspondents” sit on Balls knee with a view of Yvette( the Bisto kid !) and get their scripts from Ali Campbell and his forty wonks. Then off they trot to Eddie,Martha,Jim-well obviously these puppets but to their “line managers” so we can all be spun one in turn! That they all owe their positions to Tony and Gordon is a given!

    Still it`s funny-and when we get our money back and clear the airwaves for the emergency services that we`ll be needing once they`ve gone-it may yet be funnier still!

    A very typical thing that happened some 5 years ago or so on a football site I frequent.  Thierry Henry was described (accurately in my opinion 😉 ) as an “Arrogant French C*** ”  (The last word in full).  The only word that people objected to him being called was “French” as that was deemed to be racist.  If I was him and seen that, that would have been the only word I’d have been happy with.  😀
