Separated At Birth?

Reader Samantha writes:

Has anyone noticed the similarity between the recent Bignews Margate item entitled 'Blatant discrimination of British workers as non Polish speakers need not apply' here, and the article entitled 'Open doors EU policy gives British jobs to Polish workers' on the BNP website here?

Are they by any chance related?

Your usual bull eastcliff, its worth you casting your unreliable mind back to conversations you and I had when on talking terms in which you had similar views.

Your suggestion that I am putting out BNP propaganda is your typical offensive style

Its such arrogance to suggest that discussion of this topic automatically makes one some sort of neo nazi

Richard Eastcliff said...

I'm in no way suggesting you're in any way connected with the BNP Tony. All I'm pointing out is the two articles are pretty similar.

By your paranoid reaction, I'd say I'd hit a nerve!

Of course it's absurd that British job ads are written in Polish. But there's no doubt that this story has been whipped up by the fascist BNP bastards, and you've fallen hook, line and sinker for it!

Richard Eastcliff said...

By the way, I thought you said you never read this blog any more! Ha, gotcha!

tony flaig bignews said...

So my reference source the sunday times is now in clutches of neo nazi elements.

Now if we were talking about the Mail who ran the story you might just have a point which is all the more interesting since you donate work to one of regional papers owned by the same group despite often attacking those whose views coincide with the daily mail

Richard Eastcliff said...

Er, not quite sure of your drift there, Flaigers old sport. I donate work to a minor offshoot of the Mail group (I presume you mean East of the Wantsum for the Gazunder), so, um, therefore I'm endorsing them in some way? Which makes me a hyporcrite for thinking the Daily Wail is shite?

By that token, then, copying a story out of the Sunday Times would make you Murdoch's right hand man! Except on those days when he'd want you to use your left hand.

At the end of the day, what you wrote and what the BNP wrote sounded pretty similar, to Samantha at least.

speaking as a reader of BOTH blogs, which I enjoy in different ways, I am saddened by this.

Of course TF isn't a BNP man, if you read his blog you will know that....

He is a stupid whinger who tries to make class a race issue, by saying the middle classes have not suffered unlike the lumpen proles that Chippy Tone claims to care for.
Eastern European labour has improved our economy as somebody still has to work to make up for all the Thanetians signing on and pulling sickies . They keep the economy afloat .The jobs they are doing are ones that most Brits turn their noses up at in favour of a hand out.
If Fat Tony worked a bit harder rather than leaning on his shovel we might have a better train service at the weekends, time to get some Poles in to do the track work as well .

ECR your 3 01 comment exudes hypocrisy and the later comment 4 43 betrays your considerable snobbish attitude toward oiks like me must be a result of your priviliged upbringing

Give me a smug professional any day of the week rather than Tony Flaig.

His tawdry blog, or electronic inferiority complex to be more accurate, is the work of the small minded bitter ingrate railing endlessly against anyone who dared to get an A level.

I was very glad when you dropped him from your sidebar as I had managed to forget about him ,it is a shame you are giving the pillock some publicity.

Why does he not do some night school classes and pass an exam , and give us all a rest

One thinh is for sure wIth the number of over-85s expected to double in the next 20 years, we need someone to pay to support our ageing population, and that means importing workers. So its a good job we have an open door policy.
We allow free trade of goods that have been made by the labours of foreign workers, much of which is cheap labour. At least if we import workers rather than goods the country benifits.

tony flaig bignews said...

Agree with the smug 7 59 not too sure about professional ( i think maybe jack of all trades might well be closer )

I'm happy with my mediocrity, I went to one of Kents p*ss poor secondary schools not a public school so failure comes easy.

Still keep up the good work ECR one day you'll have something seriously thought provoking and truly original to contribute to Thanet's blogerati Cheers!

Richard Eastcliff said...

I'm sorry, but I've already made it clear this wasn't meant to be a personal attack on His Toniness, or a suggestion that he is somehow connected with the BNP. He may be slightly xenophobic, but he sure ain't a fascist.

The item on his blog and the BNP article do bear a remarkable resemblance, though, the point being that any discussion about the need or otherwise for foreign workers is bound to be hijacked by the far right for its own despicable purposes. This is no more controversial or confrontational an opinion than could be heard on Question Time.

I'm sorry that TF has launched one of his paranoid, chippy, inferiority complex driven mouth offs over it. You must judge for yourselves what that says about him. BTW, I say 'paranoid' as I've been out all afternoon and away from this blog, yet he seems to think I made the anonymous comment at 4:43pm.

Being accused of hypocrisy, if that's what contributing unpaid to a minor Mail group newspaper whilst simultaneously believing the Daily Mail itself to be a load of tripe is, I can live with.

As for being a snob, of course I am! Guilty as charged! Just as Tony's a snob about being a 'man of the people'. But I think you'll find my background was no more 'privileged' than Tony's. I just did better because I was more talented!

Richard Eastcliff said...

Original Tony? What, you call cutting something out of the Sunday Times 'original'? Kuh!

tony flaig bignews said...

just an f wit blogger thats all folks!

no voice of anyone just me

tony flaig bignews said...

night night

Richard Eastcliff said...

Sweet dreams, and don't have nightmares (about an Eastern European taking your job).

Oh, BTW, I've returned the favour and reinstated you on my sidebar.

7:59 PM"

(1) If a person is small minded, bitter and denied the opportunity to sit A levals at public expense, what are you suggesting he is ungrateful about ?

(2) To assert that a person "Rails endlessly" would require that you read his blog endlessly. You ruled that out for us in your text. Hence you cited no evidential basis for your opinion. Prejudiced.

(3)To write that it is a shame ECR gives TF publicity reveals you to be an arrogant and condescending person. You are deluded that you have godlike powers to censor what other people may choose to read ?

(4) I wonder if, like me, TF questions the value for our taxes the education system delivered if an irrational twat like you is the personification of its standards of excellence.

(5) Suggested reading for you is Rawlings Ress and Tavistock Institute. Easiest zones of influence Church and Education. Then read ECR again. Give them the jargon and they will be convinced they have been edicated into wisdom. "Ist" words.

Feely and clever girlfriend of me tells tales of greatness of Tony Flaig. Big man with big heart she gives.
I give high accolade to him on fantastic new blog for me. My sweet educator gives word 'cunt' to mean 'provider of people'. Very high accolade!
She too gives wisdom of Richard Card of 'big cock without one', but shall not explain this for me to discover on myself.

Tjörk Offï said...

His words are many but say few, I look.

The only thing slightly more boring than Tony Flaig is Richard Card.
In the list of points to counter the post yesterday he managed to get to the end without mentioning Sue Ryder or Deal barracks is this a first ? .

ECR why did you rattled the cages of the local blogging nutcases ? . This could go on for weeks and their meds will have to be upped to cope with their rising levels of indignation.

Please do not not diss needlework or else you will have Tabioo and Adventures in Quilting and sailing joining in as well, you naughty boy.

Thanks to Richard Card for his suggested reading .
Can I in turn recommend , How not to be a horses arse" by Prof D.W. Dickwangler Harvard University Press, I think it might be of some help.

By the way the the incident at the Cheshire Home was in fact perpetrated by a small green man sitting on Sheargar on top of a grassy knoll . It must be true because I read it on the internet.
