A good response. Probably not what they want to hear, but the right response. Government is never the answer to any question, frankly and the less it does, the better. Andrew Neil is talking about the media and journalism in this clip, but just about everything could have the same response. The correct response to government should always be ‘fuck off and keep fucking off until we cannot see or hear you. Until you can no longer harm us.’ Government is the enemy. It should be treated as such.


  1. Ronald Reagan once said “Government is not the solution to the problem. Government is the problem.’

    • He also said: The nine most terrifying words in the English language are “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”

      As Andrew Neil said up there ^^ the governments should restrict itself to doing what can only be done by government.

  2. This is disingenuous. The government and media feed each other and feed off each other. There is very little real political journalism and very few true leaks. Nearly all so-called ‘leaks’ are briefings intended to promote the agenda of the minister or MP doing the briefing. Journalists go along with it because it helps them fill column inches and broadcast minutes, and it makes their life easier. In return for being given easy stories journalists agree to stay away from stories that are awkward for the authorities. They might not tell outright lies, most of the time, but they choose to leave things out. A recent example, discussed by the Black Belt Barrister on youtube, is the dismissal of the case against Tommy Robinson earlier this week. The MSM hasn’t told us the reasons. Another example – why has Nick Brown been suspended by the Labour Party? I don’t know, but I bet most Westminster hacks know.
    Finally, the claim by some opponents of the Rwanda policy that they would go after and smash the criminal gangs. A question nver asked: how can you get UK police to act in countries where they have no jurisdiction and in effective oposition to the real policies of some foreign governments who are happy for illegal migrants to succedd in leaving their countries and getting across the English Channel?
    The words of Andrew Neill, that journalists and politicians should be more or less enemies, are true. But he is as much of the comfortable establishment as anybody, and has been for decades. Don’t listen to what they say,watch what they do.

  3. Whilst were doing Ronnie quotes, my favourite is what he said were the nine worst words in the English Language…
    ‘I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help.’

    • Sorry FrankH.
      That’ll teach me to read all posts before sticking my twopennorth in…

      • Seems we both posted at 11:31. Great minds think alike.

        (Or fools never differ, you choose. 🙂 )

  4. @Ben
    Thanks for the link. Every time I hear of Andrew Neil I think of that article. What a weasel!

  5. Can’t be doing with Neil or any of the hacks/celebs who revealed who they really are during the recent medical experiment.
    Never forgive or forget.

    • If you cut out of your life anybody and everybody who ever disagrees with you you’ll have a very lonely old age.

      I agree that he was wrong about the experimental gene therapy posing as a vaccine but he’s right about government interference. We should applaud him for that at least.
