Jonathon King: a Stalinist Approach to History

Jonathon King – who attended the exclusive Charterhouse School in Surrey – is a typical Tory supporting bourgeois, who thinks he is above the law (even though it generally favours the middle class), and who once described the BBC censuring a performance of his from a 1976 episode of Top of the Pops’ (repeated in 2011), as a ‘Stalinist revision approach to history’. Laughingly, in a typical act of duplicity, the BBC (which routinely excises controversial characters from its broadcasts simply by not re-showing programmes) actually thought it proper to ‘apologise’ to King – seemingly validating King’s attitude and approach. This is the same BBC that participated in the demonisation of the Thatcher-supporting King in 2000 (before his trial), but which has refused to cover the devastating effects of the Tory and LibDems ‘Austerity’ programme inflicted upon the ordinary people of the UK since its instigation in 2010, and which has provided ‘positive’ and ‘supportive’ coverage of the neo-Nazi ‘Maidan’ regime currently operating out of Western Ukraine.
