He may as well call them ''shadowmen''
''In November 2009, on The Spectator website he offered "a quick update on what the Muslim savages are up to", sarcastically suggesting "Incidentally, many Somalis have come to Britain as immigrants recently, where they are widely admired for their strong work ethic, respect for the law and keen, piercing, intelligence"'
I'm not sure you can thank the London African-Caribbean community for rap music.
Thats a lot of bile in a short article, I'm genuinely shocked
I honestly can't believe it.
i'm sure i saw an article in the evening standard of all places laying into him
his saving grace might be that it hasn't reached Paula Murray/Jan Moir levels of outrage (though maybe if it'd been fleshed to a 4-paragraph piece...)
most of the "on his side" comments were so tongue in cheek as to be beyond funny, unfunny, into the realms of funny beyond
Yeah, fair enough, perhaps the article...how do I word this...is accurate in the sense that crime among afro-Carribean youth is disproportionately high compared to other ethnic groups (white, asian, etc)...but to just say it with so much bile and hatred, without providing any social, historical, scientific or cultural context? What the fuck?
That said, goat curry is horrible and so is throwing a 15 year old girl with child into a canal.
like glenn beck without the charisma
The human filth in question is a guy and his friend who attempted to murder his pregnant girlfriend.
According to Wikipedia:
On 5 May 2005, Liddle was arrested for common assault against his then pregnant girlfriend Alicia Monckton. He was held under domestic violence guidelines which allow police to question suspects without cooperation from victims. He later was given and accepted a police caution for the offence. Liddle was reported as having claimed to have accepted the caution as it was the quickest way for him to be released, stating that he "never touched Ms. Monckton".
but still, people in glass houses etc.
"Before the Liverpool .v. Real Betis game at Anfield when Roy Keane announced his retirement from football Bill O'Herlihy stated that in the column about Roy a journalist called him a thug. Dunphy continued roaring at Bill asking him who's column it was. Bill replied it was on the back page of the Sunday Times. "Look at it" he told Eamon. Eamon still pestered him asking who wrote it. Bill replied "I can't remember his name". Eamon continued saying:
"I'll tell you who wrote it, Rod Liddle, he's the guy who ran away and left his wife for a young one"."
Liddle married his long-term girlfriend and HTV reporter, Rachel Royce, in March 2004 in Malaysia. They had been living in Heytesbury, Wiltshire, and had two sons together, Tyler and Wilder. Six months later, Liddle moved in with Alicia Monckton, a twenty-two year old receptionist at The Spectator magazine whom he started seeing shortly before his wedding. His wife divorced him. It transpired that he had cut his honeymoon short so that he could be with Monckton
(unless it's moderated to hell, ofc)
Rod Liddle, Richard Littlejohn, etc.
to read his Wikipedia page you'd think he was a big leftie so I think you'll have to brand him a left-wing nutjob.
he voted Labour in the Guardian column he had at the time. If I remember correctly, the right-wing press were the main cheerleaders behind him leaving.
The Bonnie Greer response tickled me
"My response would be to say that the overwhelming majority of paedophiles, murderers, war-mongers and football hooligans are white males and all we got in return was beans on toast and Top Gear."
I like how outspoken he is on Islam, but he's a bit wrong here.
Criticising and blaming multiculturalism for society's ills is far too easy. At the same time, being told how wonderful it is and that it's "what makes our country so special" is equally as wrong and irritating.
''He looks like a failed womble who's been shaken awake in a shop doorway''
Also, how on earth did Liddle manage to secure that little peach Alicia Monckton as his bride?
