She played it differently and was not just the host, she also pulled the guests on their answers and challenged them on their comments, maybe once or twice a bit too much, but I thought she did very well overall. I think she will not suffer fools gladly [^]

Politics show afterwards was interesting with Andrew Neil attempting to shut Owen Jones down. Neil and Portillo also seemed to be dismissing the potential rise of the far right, which seemed stange. Portillo used to be pretty solid with his points but he's starting to struggle more and more.

she did well though she let the Tory minister off the hook when he said he would explain plan b then couldnt/wouldn't. don't think any of the panel came out very well.

RH, we have been told the rise in the right throughout my lifetime. The British public are well ahead of the politicians on this one.

She did well I thought, but the issue is still the BBC bias. Melanie Philips was basically against 4 of the other panellists.

As for Owen jones, he's a typical middle class shouty left wing hypocrite. Neil and Portillo showed him up for what he is.

What is strange is why you insist on lying all the time.
Neil did nothing of the sort, in fact he clearly points out that far-right activities have increased in the UK and in Europe.

I accept Enoch was before my time but I can remember when the National Front was at its peak it won one or two local election seats.

The right has never gained a slight foothold that I can remember.

The far right terrify me as does the far left, I cannot see a paper width between them

She's a daily mail journalist. What do you want, 3 daily mail journalists against 2 relatively rational individuals? And that wouldn't be biased?

The Daily Mail journalist will always be against the 4 other panellists.

She was very good, she was quick to step in when they were trying to deflect.

She suited the roll well, even though I had my doubts.
A bit of fresh air.

The trick is to identify a growth in far right ideology and stamp it out before it does gain a foothold. Then again, UKIP has already previously gained a foothold with some nasty characters being accommodated. The left are doing a good job in meeting these thugs full on.

As for Owen Jones on This Week, he stood his ground, had to shout over the right-wing loudmouth Andrew Neil, and everything Jones said was true, about the Spectator, which Neil is the chairman of, about it's islamaphobic and racist articles, and legitimising the far right.

Neil tried to shut him down, but it was relevant to the discussion, so no need to try to censor him.
No wonder Neil wanted to stop him.

Off camera just after the credits had rolled, Neil shouted at Jones across the studio.

"I'll deal with you later"

What a lovely bloke.

No of course I wasn't.

Jones Tweeted this after the show.

I see absolutely no reason whatsoever why he'd lie about that when there was plenty of witnesses about.

Since you ask Penguin, stuff like.

Defending Greek neo Nazis, claiming black people have a lower IQ than white people, saying there's not enough islamaphobia in the Conservative party, and headlines like In the defence of Wehrmacht.

All fouun within the pages of the Spectator.

"No of course I wasn't."

Yes, I thought as much.
And it's not like Owen Jones would ever lie, except that time he lied about militarily supporting the IRA against the British state. Or when he mass deleted loads of his Tweets after they contained a plethora of lies. Or when he lied about inciting abuse of an MP, then picked a fight with his journalist friends at The Guardian who then turned on him.

Fair enough, I still don't believe he would have lied about off camera comments, with witnesses all around.

Why would he discredit himself in such feeble way?

Anyhow, the stuff written in the Spectator, chaired by Neil, is in black and white print, for all to see. And everything Jones said last night was 100% true.

So where are these witnesses then?

And as for why would Jones discredit himself - maybe because he's someone so consumed by his own ego he's completely unaware that he does, given he's been doing so for years. And he has a particular bee in his bonnet with Neil/This Week ever since he made a tit of himself the last time he was on in 2012, and has since then been in a constant state of trying to save face.

So you'd sooner discredit undeniable fact that's actually printed in a paper, and question what may or may not have been said?

And Neil isn't consumed in his own ego?

I'd ask you to point out where I did that, but seeing as I haven't and you're lying it seems a pointless task.

You asked what far right wing things are people refering to.

I gave you an answer.

You haven't commented on that, and turned to questioning what Jones may or may not have said off camera. Everything he said on camera was true.

You don't believe him, I don't see any reason not to, given the state Neil was in.

No I didn't, I asked TRHM what policies he associates with the far-right. I did not ask you what The Spectator has published, and I didn't address your comment as I rarely read their content and am certainly not aware of these articles you reference, didn't link to, but somehow expect me to know what you're blabbering on about and then lie claiming that I "discredited undeniable facts".

Good use of bullying by Andrew Neill, but Jones could have been a bit cleverer it ended up with Jones looking like the bully. Jones needs to keep a bit cooler, but still sharp, look at Rees Mogg for lessons.


There is a growing far right in this country, it may be small, but it is growing. It feels like the middle in being hollowed out. I am not comfortable with a far right or left thank you.

There is a danger, though, that as she has so many jobs, there could be spillover.
E.g 'did you or did you not find this painting in a car boot sale? Answer the question!'
