The World Turned Upside Down



So Ted Kennedy has gone to meet his maker, so why are the BBC lauding his 'achievements ' . He comes from the loins of Joe Kennedy Snr US Ambassador to Great Britain, who wrote us off in 1940. Until two jets slammed into the twin towers he gave aid and comfort to this country's enemies.

His driving skills were non too great either. His explanation of what happened was pretty thin as well, but it helps to be stinking rich and have political clout.

So why Gordon Brown gave a Knighthood to the old blowhard is beyond my ken, as well as the BBC's praise.

And he has plenty to say about this today - but not Lockerbie.

No doubt the BBC will add Ted's head to the montage of historical greats who feature in their,'Where were you advert'.
All happen to be Liberal heroes.
Funny that innit.

"Money from America was minimal" Joe Cahill, Chief of Finance, PIRA, 1991.

Bullshit

No Guthrum. Green Cross was some help but by '92 volunteers & sympathisers were asked if in the US to "buy handguns, 9mms only". Quaddafi gave lots of ammo but no money. The 'RA were always skint.

made some mistakes , was better in last few years , was populist but didnt care enough about the numbers . Didnt say enough about banking collapse .

eventually realised mistakes in Ireland , just wish he had done it earlier .

The BBC might be singing his praises but the contributors to the "Have Your Say" section of the website certainly aren't.

You have to get to about page 4 of the "recommended" section to find someone not describing him, in polite and BBC-moderated terms, as a complete cunt.

Point taken, A.B Gordon - Kennedy was an incompetent fundraiser for murderous fuck-knuckles.

Brain cancer. Good. It's called karma.

I thought most of the IRA money (apart from the bank robberies) came from the USA?
Re Ted Kennedy, listened to someone on the TV going on about 'will be missed by everybody', my other half 'not by that girl's parents he won't - they're probably singing & dancing'. Chapaquiddick did for him & his political ambitions I think - after that, every time his name came up, people automatically thought of him leaving the girl (Mary Jo Koepcne?) to drown. Yes, you can see why he'd be a hero of Gordon's - a coward, a liar & a supporter of terrorists.

And apparently kicked out of Harvard for cheating.

Ah but allowed back in after his influential family kicked up merry hell. I think I also read somewhere that subsequently he was expelled AGAIN. Just an old fashioned cunt.

He was an absolute hoon - just like his two stinking brothers

The Lakelander said...

At least Ted has now been reunited with his brothers
