Brendon Cox Forced To Resign From His Charities.

Brendon Cox, News,Media,Images,Sex Pest,CharityFollowing allegations that Oxfam tried to cover up sexual abuse by aid workers in Haiti the reputation of Britain’s charity sector has sunk to an all time low. As more allegations surface the mainstream news media is naturally up in arms.

In the latest development Brendan Cox, whose MP wife Jo was murdered, has sensationally quit the two charities he set up in her name after admitting to being a sex pest. In an interview with The Mail on Sunday, Brendan Cox announced his resignation from the Jo Cox Foundation and More In Common – the charities he launched in memory of his wife.

His confession relates to his time with Save The Children in the year before his wife was killed by a far-right fanatic during the 2016 Brexit referendum campaign. It has also been revealed that Cox behaved inappropriately toward a young woman in America back in 2015.

Brendan Cox has apologised for the ‘hurt and offence’ he has caused, and is ‘deeply apologetic’ for his behaviour.

Yeah right, you got caught Brendon Cox. You thought the general public would never find out you were trying to have jiggy-jiggy in a paddling pool full of misfortune. That’s why you’re sorry.

While pushy young ‘chuggers’ continue to rattle their tins on every street corner the grim reality is that all this negative publicity now means the nation’s honest, hard-working fund-raisers find themselves under public scrutiny like never before. Brendon Cox has just made the gift of giving harder.

Charity begins at home.

Seriously, if I had a pound for every time I’ve heard that expression I would be sprawled across a sun lounger on a Caribbean island, sipping rum punch and turning the colour of stewed tea. But where else does charity begin if not at home? Unfortunately barely a day seems to pass without another story emerging of charity mismanagement, incompetence, immorality and worse…. sexual exploitation.

If we, the general public stop believing in the good intentions of these charitable organisations then they will surely fail. Without careful stewardship, the whole concept of giving to the less fortunate will collapse altogether. Charities’ champion Esther Rantzen once said:

“The charitable sector depends entirely on trust. Without public belief in it’s good intentions and careful stewardship, it will collapse.”

Why is sexual misconduct such headline news?

Rational people would grant you that sexual exploitation is a worse crime than say, paying a woman less than her male counterpart for the same job. Nowadays any exposé of sexual exploitation will result in a public outcry, massive media coverage, and of course social media outrage.

However, any journalist will tell you that reporting an allegation of sexual molestation requires a diligent work effort. It’s a complicated business and fraught with legal peril. However in the past few months, numerous women have stepped forward to accuse men of using their positions and/or powers to sexually harass and, in some cases, do the dirty with them. And our mainstream media has been there to report it!

But who needs the media – we’ve got the #MeToo hashtag.

The hot rolling and unrelenting #MeToo movement started out as a way for women to express the fact that no female goes through life without at least one creepy male giving them a shoulder rub. Like all great hashtags before them, the #MeToo hashtag has now become a social movement, loosely representing a symbolic support signal for women everywhere.

The implicit core of this feminist hashtag movement is that women are not put on this Earth to satisfy men. No sir, any man who’s had more than a handful of girlfriends could’ve told you this, but from the gender perspective, this hashtag is a measure of female strength and determination.

Yes, a woman can exist just fine without a man. In fact, thanks to leggings and lots of orange juice, finer.

With such an ideological backdrop the difficult question of how a woman can be hot and alluring naturally seeps into the equation.These things can be worked out with the proper amount of tightrope walking, rhetorical twisting, and a compliant user base.

Numerous models and celebrities have come to see their exhibitionism is now in conflict with the marching orders of central feminist command. The out clause here seems to be, as long as it’s something I’m doing it for myself as a female, then it must be feminist.

Yes, concessions must be made, provided we can label them as steps toward gender equality. And nobody in a complicit media asks too many questions.

Donald Trump Piers Morgan Interview.

Donald Trump, Piers Morgan,interviews,Millions have tried to demean President Donald Trump with angry name calling. Most of the people who hate Trump have broadcast their rants across the broad spectrum of social media – Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and more. They’ve even created hashtags for all the injustices Donald Trump stands for. Lots of racist this and sexist that. Someone even called him a pedophile once.

Unfortunately the creativity ability of most anti-Trumpers is either non-existent or stifled by their overwhelming anger. The verbal mediocrity of those who don’t laud Donald Trump means that no angry name caller has ever managed to create an all-embracing insult that adequately suits every occasion.

However, Daylin Leach, a Pennsylvania State Senator once called Trump a “facist, loofa-faced, shit gibbon.” Now this single insult says it all. Fascist, loofa-faced, shit-gibbon is truly one of those defining moments in name calling. Not only is it evocative and creative, it’s also ridiculous enough to be memorable.

And since he constantly volleys verbal abuse at people on a daily basis Donald Trump deserves it. Kudos to you, State Senator, Daylin Leach.

It’s more than okay to hate Donald Trump. But if you’re a journalist and a Trump obsession is all you got, then that’s a problem. Unless you’re on an ITV late night show with a guaranteed contract that is. Your next million is guaranteed. Go right ahead Piers, exorcise your personal demons.

Piers Morgan interviews Donald Trump

Trump association is a dangerous game for a respected journalist. You risk being labeled a Nazi with an ulterior motive. Or worse. However, whilst this isn’t the first time a world renowned journalist has developed a hard-on for a sitting President Piers Morgan doesn’t seem to care. Lets face it ALMOST everybody can get away with blind Trump bashing these days, especially for a round of cheap applause.

This interview took Piers Morgan more than a year to arrange but last week, in a small conference room at the Davos World Economic Forum, he finally had his chance to put Donald Trump on the spot; question the most powerful world leader of all – the president of the United States.

In his first British TV interview Piers asked the US President how he feels about the women who think he is the worst kind of sexist, misogynist pig.

“Well, I am for them and I think a lot of them understand that. Hmmm. I’d say the number of women on those marches who understand that could be written on the back of a postage stamp”.


When Piers asked him for his thoughts on gender equality and a woman’s right to feel safe in the workplace Trump redefined Pier’s question, saying:

“I think they want to feel safe at the border. I think they want to see our military get much stronger. Women want to see… a strong law enforcement. I’m very much a law-and-order person. There’s nobody better than me on the military. I think women really like that. I think they want to be safe at home, in many different respect”.

Just so as you know, in politico/PR speak answering an entirely different question to the one you were asked is called bridging.

Donald Trump has made some surprise statements in his time. But nothing comes close to his admission to Piers – that he is not a feminist. When Piers asked the President if he identified himself as a feminist Trump smirked as if the idea was as ridiculous as the question.

“No, I wouldn’t say I’m a feminist. I mean, I think that would be, maybe, going too far. I’m for women, I’m for men, I’m for everyone. I think people have to go out, they have to go out and really do it, and they have to win. And women are doing great, and I’m happy about that”.

Trump’s comments probably now justify a ton of outrage by feminists across the world. Don’t feel obliged to agree but if nothing else, this interview shows there is justification for Trump hate. Maybe it’ll continue to grow from here. After all Trump seems to stand for redefining the word excluded. Right charge, wrong man? Hardly.

So, as a world renowned journalist where does Piers go from here? Seriously, there’s nothing left for him to do – apart from waiting for his pension.

President Trump: The Piers Morgan Interview, airs on ITV at 10pm tonight.

Salma Heyek Accuses Harvey Weinstein.

selma hayek, harvey weinstein, newsmediaimagesThe intense media coverage of the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal is where Sex and the City meets The Accused. Now, in the latest development, Hollywood actress Salma Hayek has accused Weinstein of pestering her for sex — and when she refused – threatening to kill her.

Salma claims that Harvey Weinstein has pestered her for nearly a decade. In a moving article published in the The New York Times Hayek says that her refusals of massages, showers and sex enraged Weinstein.

“ For years, he was my monster. I don’t think he hated anything more than the word ‘no’.

No, to me taking a shower with him. No, to letting him watch me shower. No, to letting him give me a massage. No, to letting a naked friend of his give me a massage. No, to getting naked with another woman.”

Naturally Harvey Weinstein has denied everything.

In a statement issued by a spokesman Weinstein said,

“All of the sexual allegations as portrayed by Salma are not accurate and others who witnessed the events have a different account of what transpired.”

It’s amazing how dirty a woman must feel when she’s forced to lie down with a pig. Weinstein is a super pig, and if he’s guilty, then he deserves to be put down permanently.

But Harvey Weinstein is not the whole story. The world’s women are. The victims.

Women of the World.

For years women of the world have felt angry and without a voice. Now, there’s a place to get themselves heard – social media.

Basically, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram users are being encouraged to bolster awareness of sexual assault by including the #MeToo hashtag with details of any unwelcome touching from straight men, straight women, gay men, gay women, anyone under twenty-one, anyone over twenty-five, birds, bees, frogs, cats or dogs.

Yes, start there. You don’t have to prove anything to get involved. Simply update your status with a #MeToo hashtag and then share your story.

I only wish I could get in on the craze. Maybe I’ll get lucky and a Starbucks barista will draw a penis on my coffee cup. Then I’ll know what it’s like.

Nigel Farage Attacks Liberal Elites

Nigel Farage,Liberal elites,When it comes to attacking the liberal elite then there’s no more persistant offender than the vaguely interesting Nigel Farage. He claims he can read their altruistic minds faster than Gary Lineker can lick ladies underwear.

Earlier today the ex-Ukip leader used an appearance on the BBC Andrew Marr Show to defend Donald Trump’s decision to re-tweet three Britain First videos. During the interview Nigel Farage attacked the ‘liberal elite’ insisting they had over-reacted to the situation.

Mr Farage said:

“Do I think those tweets were in good taste? Not particularly, no. But the point is that the level of outrage from the liberal elite in this country is out of all proportion with what happened here.”

Liberal elites?

I guess what Nigel Farage means by ‘liberal elites’ are the salacious and liberal arts grads who now dominate the established media. 

It’s worth Googling the names of reporters who wrote long and informed pieces on Donald Trump/Britain First affair. The entire purpose of their stories was to turn an unpleasant social media broadcast into a narrative which suited a less partisan news agenda – and then hope a largely uninformed readership would agree with them.

To a great extent they achieved their objective. However, there’s a growing number of people who were less than convinced. Unfortunately for them whenever these disingenuous news outlets hear dissenting voices they shout them down with narcissistic accusations of bigotry, racism and racial hatred. In doing so the established media has created a void. An empty void which belongs to the Voice of the People. A void into which the far-right has now stepped.

Fill The Void

Perhaps a truth, whole truth and nothing but the truth approach in the reporting of these issues is what’s needed now. Fill the void. Yes, allow the ‘Voice of the People’ to be heard.

I know, it’s a utopian dream to build a new and perfect society in which everyone is happy. So sayeth the wise man, but what constitutes good and balanced journalism today? Impossible to say? I’d agree, news outlets now have rapid response teams that won’t allow a negative opinion to fester for more than a millisecond before firing off a salvo of misleading flares and redirects all of which are designed to change public perception.

Okay, so good journalism might sometimes find itself at odds with what people wish to believe. However, many journalists don’t factor in how readers respond to their writing. That’s scary because in the end, if nobody believes what journalists write it’s probably a sign that true reporting is dead.

Yes, believe anything you read. If enough people believe it’s fake news, then it’s real. We can’t reboot the Internet. So just feast on whatever news supports your views. That way we all win.

‘We ARE A Threat!’ Says Jeremy Corbyn.

Jeremy Corbyn Blasts Morgan Stanley David Cameron once told Jeremy Corbyn to “put on a proper suit and do up your tie”. Now, two years later, Jeremy Corbyn has taken that advice and become GQ Magazine’s Best Dressed Man of the Year.

Well, that story didn’t take long to write but oh boy what week this is turning out for Jeremy Corbyn. Not content with the cover of GQ he’s also launched a ‘banker bashing’ salvo at investment bankers Morgan Stanley. Essentially he’s told those ‘casino capitalists’ that they are right to regard him as a threat.

The Labour leader’s comments come after the US-owned bank released a statement in which they warned that a Labour government was a bigger threat to the UK economy than Brexit.

They said:

From a UK investor perspective, we believe that the domestic political situation is at least as significant as Brexit.

It is certainly plausible that the Labour Party could ultimately moderate some of its more radical policy ideas; the alternative could be the most significant political shift in the UK since the end of the 1970s

Mr Corbyn’s response came in a video in which he pledged that a Labour government would reform banking regulations and rein in the “speculators and gamblers” who crashed our economy back in 2008”.

He said:

“These are the same speculators and gamblers who crashed our economy in 2008. And then we had to bail them out.

Their greed plunged the world into crisis and we’re still paying the price, because the Tories used the aftermath of the financial crisis to push through unnecessary and deeply damaging austerity.

That’s meant a crisis in our public services, falling wages and the longest decline in living standards for over 60 years.”

The Labour leader also said that despite the bank paying more than $3 billion in fines Morgan Stanley continue to court senior members of the UK Government. Apparently they meet with Chancellor Philip Hammond four times in a year.

Media Coverage

Jeremy Corbyn seems somewhat self-effacing, at least in this video. He comes across as an honest politician wanting to do what’s best for the common people. By appealing directly to the electorate (via social media) Jeremy Corbyn has effectivley by-passed the established media.

While Jeremy continues to advocate equal opportunity and equality for all the traditional media are driven by an entirely different ideology. Money, influence and power. Consequently there’s now going to be a media stampede to publish anti-Corbyn stories.

Indeed one doesn’t have to look far to find journalists who will report everything that Jeremy Corbyn says as being utter utopian nonsense.

However there are a growing number of people who now believe the traditional media to be politically biased. Biased by way of omission, selection of stories and worst of all, spin. (Paul Dacre knows what I’m talking about.)

Oh I know, newspapers were never truly objective; but they were never this bad. Unfortunately they can’t see that. They continue to applaud themselves for publishing their own partisan ideology simply because it fits their corporate news narrative. That’s kind of scary.

The Fourth Estate has gone the way of quality rock ‘n’ roll and girls in mini-skirts. A distant memory of days gone by.

Yes, the guy with the writing service in Bristol is sitting pretty.

Royal Engagement – Sexy Meghan Markle Sparkles!

British royal watchers are all of a flutter today because Prince Harry has finally announced his engagement to American actress, Meghan Markle. According to the press they will marry early next year.

Now that Prince Harry has confirmed that Meghan Markle, a divorced lady, will be joining the royal family everybody in England is scrambling to find examples of a royal marrying a divorcee. And guess what? There isn’t one. The closest an American divorcee got to the royal throne was American socialite Wallis Simpson whom Edward abdicated to marry.

So, is marrying an American divorcee still considered a royal scandal? Maybe, maybe not. Who knows. Who cares.

Lets face it Meghan Markle has all the right credentials to become royal. After all her track record of ‘good deeding’ is impeccable. In between her workouts and occasional casting calls she already works for a number of global charities. Yes, her good deeds are most sincere.

However, as far as her future role as a royal ambassador is concerned it’s not exactly super exciting. On the upside she might get to address equality, body shaming and recycling issues. On the downside she’ll have to start kissing newsworthy babies always hoping that nobody in the crowd asks her why she doesn’t get a proper job.

Oh I know, it’s easy to mock our royal family. That is until we’re forced to accept that the rags of scandal have now replaced them with reality stars like Gemma Collins and Sam Faiers. And yes, their dubious veneer of class is best discussed in the privacy of pole-dancing club.

Anyway, imagine the stories Meghan will tell her children someday – how their mum rose from the shadows of Hollywood to become the sparkling flower of Britain’s aristocracy. One day her story will rank first on Wikipedia’s list of great things a girl can achieve.
