Question Time Commentary

I don't mind Jess. She is a moderate, rather than a Corbynite. She means well and makes good points on various subjects eg anti-semitism, supply chains etc.
I agree with you, but the voice! :smile:

I'm a Brummie but her accent does me 'ead in
 
QT: bit of a pointless Government minister there, unable to speak on his feet, and wholly unable to get any sort of rational point across without waffle. Fail. The LibDem cipher a waste of breath, and the 'poet' a boring Marxist who couldn't even articulate credible Marxist philosophy. Severe fail. The rat-faced Labour woman playing politics - badly - rounded up a bad panel. Tim Martin the only one with genuine opinions, and even he shied away from those he would really want to expound. Boris for PM.

He said Boris for PM. It wasn't a popular suggestion with the audience, unlike most of his other comments. The poet was there as a vegan but asides from saying the fish should remain in the sea didn't come out with anything poetic or radical. "Rat Face" = Rebecca Long Bailey, yet another former solicitor with a trade unionist dad.

- Correct; Yes, he did.
- Correct; No, he didn't.
- Correct; Yes, she is, and she forms a fairly complete picture of everything I despise in British politics today. Perhaps I should have said 'weasel-faced' to be fair.
 
Sorry if this has been done before but Rebecca Long Bailey's face has long fascinated me for some reason then it dawned on me why...

Views
Zephaniah is an honorary patron of The Vegan Society, Viva! (Vegetarians' International Voice for Animals
EVOLVE! Campaigns, the anti-racism organisation Newham Monitoring Project with whom he made a video in 2012 about the impact of Olympic policing on black communities, Tower Hamlets Summer University and is an animal rights advocate.
In 2004 he wrote the foreword to Keith Mann's book From Dusk 'til Dawn: An insider's view of the growth of the Animal Liberation Movement, a book about the Animal Liberation Front.
In August 2007, he announced that he would be launching the Animal Liberation Project, alongside People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
He became a vegan when he read poems about "shimmering fish floating in an underwater paradise, and birds flying free in the clear blue sky".

The poet joined Amnesty International in speaking out against homophobia in Jamaica, saying: "For many years Jamaica was associated with freedom fighters and liberators, so it hurts when I see that the home of my parents is now associated with the persecution of people because of their sexual orientation."

Zephaniah has spoken in favour of a British Republic and the dis-establishment of the crown.

Zephaniah appeared in literature to support changing the British electoral system from first-past-the-post to alternative vote for electing members of parliament to the House of Commons in the Alternative Vote referendum in 2011.

Zephaniah is a Rastafari. He gave up smoking cannabis in his thirties.

In 2003, Zephaniah was offered appointment as an Officer of the Order of the British Empire, but publicly rejected it. In a subsequent article for The Guardian he elaborated upon his reaction to learning about being considered for the award and his reasons for rejecting it: "Me? I thought, OBE me? Up yours, I thought. I get angry when I hear that word 'empire'; it reminds me of slavery, it reminds of thousands of years of brutality, it reminds me of how my foremothers were raped and my forefathers brutalised...Benjamin Zephaniah OBE – no way Mr Blair, no way Mrs Queen. I am profoundly anti-empire."

In 2015 he called for Welsh and Cornish to be taught in English schools, saying "Hindi, Chinese and French are taught [in schools], so why not Welsh? And why not Cornish? They're part of our culture."

In a 2017 interview, commenting on the ongoing Brexit negotiations, Zephaniah stated that "For left-wing reasons, I think we should leave the EU but the way that we’re leaving is completely wrong".

He'll fill the Bingo Card on his own the moon howling oxygen thief...
I've made a note NOT to invite him shooting .
