Keith Allen/Nick Griffin Prog on C4 this Evening.

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by LancePrivateJones, Mar 6, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Did anybody see this crock of shite from Keith Allen tonight?

    I am not a supporter of the BNP by any means but even I felt a small amount of sympathy with Griffin following this pile of trash.

    Allen deliberately set out to try and humiliate Griffin and only succeeded in making a pillock out of himself with his blatant agenda.

    The old saying about actors and musicians keeping out of politics never seemed so apposite as it did tonight IMO.

  2. Watching it on 4+1 now. Allen is full of shit. Totally misrepresented Enoch Powell too, which got me shouting at the TV.
  3. Thanks, it isn't just me then.

    Seems like Allen has put together a prog aimed at denigrating Griffin and using spurious facts to allegedly back up his case.

    The footage of the BNP canvassers being provoked, assaulted and spat at by local Asians was presented as being the BNPs fault which is not how I saw it at all.

  4. Only about half way through. I've not seen any journalist properly nail Griffin - all have done the Allen thing and turned up with a pre-conceived idea and a lot of guff.
  5. I thought Griffin handled himself rather well which I suspect was not the intention of this programme.

    I discussed this with the Mrs (Afro-Carib type) and after watching it she said that she would consider voting for Griffins lot which I don't think was Allen's intention when he made this foolish programme.

    I've always rated Keith Allen as a bit of a dick but now I am convinced.
  6. The fat puffs had two piercings in his left ear.

  7. Do you mean Griffin?

    Can't say that I caught that.
  8. Yes I just switched over to it.
  9. I've never heard of Allen before this show but he seems like a tit.

    He does do a fabulous job of making Griffin look comparatively "normal" - as normal as a megalomaniac right wing racist is capable of looking, at any rate.

  10. You seem to echo my thoughts very closely Pyianno, spooky.

    BNP and Griffin must be laughing their tits off. I am shocked that the leader of a notorious Right Wing party is being seen with ear piercings though, what a ******* lush.
  11. What's the rule? "Right ear right queer"?

    I bet Cambridge's ears are burning. Clearly the best education in the world has no morally refining effect on some people.
  12. Allen is a cock of Sean Penn proportions. From Wiki:

    "After having several jobs during the 1970s, including a job as a stagehand from which he was sacked after joining Max Bygraves' chorus line on stage naked, Allen first found success as a stand-up comedian, opening for rock bands such as the Clash

    His documentary film about the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, Unlawful Killing, which was entirely financed by Mohamed Al-Fayed, was screened at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. It accused Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret of being 'gangsters in tiaras', and alleged that Prince Philip had a 'Nazi background'. Allen said he refused to make 87 cuts asked for by lawyers to enable the film to be seen in Britain. He also told reporters that he thought the crash had been intended only as a warning but that “something went massively wrong”.

    Allen said that claims he had eight children were not true and that he actually has six children by four different women. His children include pop singer Lily Allen and actor Alfie Owen-Allen with his first wife Alison Owen. He was also married to Nira Park and his lovers have included Julia Sawalha and currently the actress Tamzin Malleson (who starred alongside him in Bodies). Their daughter, Teddie, was born in 2006. Although a staunch socialist, whose political philosophy was influenced by the Workers' Revolutionary Party,[SUP][13][/SUP] Allen has expressed grudging admiration for Conservative Party leader David Cameron and former leader William Hague.[SUP][[/SUP] Allen has on his shoulder a tattoo of Rinka the dog, owned by Norman Scott, which was shot dead during the Jeremy Thorpe scandal. He has explained that: “I had the tattoo placed on my arm lest I forget, so I have a history of having suspicions about the establishment and the Government and court cases.”[SUP]

    [/SUP]In the mid-1980s Allen served a 21-day jail sentence in Pentonville Prison after being found guilty of criminal damage at the Zanzibar club in Covent Garden"

    His intellectual genius at work:

  13. Finished on C4+1 now. Reinforces the establishment response to Griffin really - bankrupt him! Undischarged bankrupts cannot stand for Parliament.

    However, belonging to a terrorist organisation (IRA) is more than ample qualification to be gifted a place in the Northern Irish Devolved Assembly.
  14. Does anybody really think he would get in?

    That beast Harman tried to scare us all that it could happen despite Oswald Mosley's dismal performance with the BUF in the 1930s when British Fascism was at its zenith. The BUF had support from some newspapers as well and not one seat did they get.

    The BNP will never even get as many seats as the Lib/Dems never mind form a government.

    Spectacular own goal from Allen and Channel 4 who really should know better.
  15. Exactly - the only people who think there's a "risk" of him getting voted in are those same people who have absolute disdain for public opinion anyway. So Broon, Harman, Jacqui Smith etc.
