That Irresistable British Charm ....

Marc Landers is an American expat living in the rapidly devolving Britain.
As such he is inundated with the nonsense and propaganda of the leftarded British media.

Stemming from the kerfuffle created by a Tennessee Burger King franchisee it seems much of the lefty MSM is a state of confusion. Even in Britain some jerkoff journo finds it too much to resist. And so armed with the assurance of his inate superiority goes looking for redneck fools.

Here's an example:
"So I decided to see if a little English charm could draw the evidently coy MIC out of its shell and, to my surprise, I was patched straight through by the operator to J.J. McNelis, MIC's marketing president. What proceeded was one of the more memorable calls I've made as a journalist. "

Read the transcript of the call and you'll see why it was memorable. Read the whole thing but here's a snippet.

In first person by Brit media Mutton Head ...

"Me: But "Global Warming is Baloney" is certainly a different sort of message, a more political viewpoint?

McNelis: I would agree that it's a viewpoint, but not necessarily a political one. But we're not sheeple around here, and while Barack Obama would like to have you believe that no one is entitled to have a view other than his, if someone wants to stand up and say "Global Warming is Baloney", then I'm all for it. It doesn't matter to me, whether I believe in it or not. They have first amendment rights to say whatever's on their mind. And nobody dictates otherwise."

Here's the full story from the Guardian..

Political? How about scientific? The only politics is the marginalization of those scientists who don't support it.

The BBC and the Guardian both admit that the issue is political.

They've played it that way from the very start.

Now that guy from Burger King ....McNelis! He's not playing the fool for anyone.
