Other Items That Caught Our Eye This Week - w/e 22 June

by The Participator – 23 Jun 2019

Pakistan – nice scenery, shame about the religion

Our weekly roundup of news and opinion articles that we thought were important, mostly UK news but foreign news stories of interest to us as well.


Only Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt (pronounced with an ‘h’) were left in the contest. According to a Sky poll, Boris is in the lead even among ordinary voters:

Sky Poll of General Public Gives Boris Commanding Lead

Curtains were twitching in Camberwell as Boris Johnson and his girlfriend apparently had a very minor disagreement about something. The police were called to the non-incident and the media were falling over themselves in their haste to cover the non-story. From the Express:

Police called to Boris Johnson’s home after ‘shouting and slamming’ heard by neighbour

The Guardian had obtained audio footage of the incident apparently, although if you visit the Guardian website they will assure you that they respect your privacy.

It later transpired that the neighbours who had sounded the alarm were not exactly fans of Boris’s leadership bid (video clip link in this tweet):

Quite amazing video of the nosey neighbours who dobbed Boris to the police for raising his voice. As you can see they are a pair of complete melts with an agenda. All couples have arguments but few are recorded by vindictive neighbours pic.twitter.com/TazfNt62ZZ

Corbyn to back second Brexit referendum – The Times

Commenter BrexitTory drew our attention to a short video clip featuring Jeremy Corbyn from not so long ago:

Jeremy Corbyn said he didn't say "Article 50 has to be invoked now" on the morning of the EU referendum result.

So here he is, not saying "Article 50 has to be invoked now" on the morning of the EU referendum result.

Nicky Campbell the presenter did at least apologize on Twitter (the BBC bosses will probably be calling him into the office for re-education):

I would like to apologise. We had the Imam from the BBC Tory leadership debate on our programme this morning. His social media comments have been extremely disturbing. We should have checked. We didn’t. I’m sorry.

Acid attacks are in fashion in London these days:

Our related post from this week on the subject of Jo Brand’s remarks about acid attacking people, in case you missed it:

From the BBC:

Nigel Farage milkshake attack: Newcastle man admits assault

Brendan O’Neill on disproportionate milkshake attack sentences:

“When a man threw an egg at Jeremy Corbyn, he was branded a fascist and jailed for a month. When a man threw a milkshake at Nigel Farage, he was celebrated in media circles and given just 150 hours community service. The double standards are staggering.”

— Sam Hooper (@SamHooper) June 22, 2019

According to Sam they were complaining to WordPress about a Jesus and Mo cartoon picture that he had shared which apparently violated Pakistan’s laws (Sam doesn’t live in Pakistan though, that’s the thing). In the controversial cartoon picture, Jesus says “Hey” and Mo says “How ya doin’?”


Well known in Islamophobic circles, Hamed Abdel-Samad was briefly kicked off Youtube it seems but will be re-instated:

Islamic terrorists call for my murder since years because I criticise Islam. But They could never stop me from speaking out what I think. But now they have a collaborator. YouTube has just deleted my channel https://t.co/NEIcThIVNH where I discuss with Muslims about democracy
