A MEDIA SMEAR

 
undefinedPoor young Adele! The acclaimed London songstress has been the subject of some fake pictures that seek to show her engaging in sexual acts.
I like Adele – some of her songs are excellent and she has an entrancing, mesmerising voice. I have previously put up a few of her tracks on this blog – Someone Like You, Rolling in the Deep and Set Fire to the Rain that are all from her album 21.

No doubt she is upset by these scurrilous revelations that appeared in a pernicious French magazine. Her lawyers are threatening to sue their asses off.

She has an interest in doing this as she has carved out a niche as a soulful and angst riven female. She’s a good north/south London girl with a twangy ordinary speaking voice. A Pamela Anderson or Paris Hilton-esque tape would not be good for her image.

It is not the case that all publicity is good publicity. Also as I pointed out in a recent article, once something appears unchallenged in the mass media – in the newspapers for example – then it becomes a ‘fact’. That is why Adele’s publicists have very noisily challenged the veracity of the sex images.

Plenty of unsubstantiated gossiping takes place on the internet. Only a foolish person would get upset about that sort of tittle-tattle. You are better off treating it as a source of amusement. As they say there’s only one thing worse than being talked about and that’s not being talked about.

But once it hits the press – that’s when you’ve got to worry.
Ask Adele.

  1. Ha, ha, you are right, one of the funniest and most intentionally ironic lines in the English language is "I saw it on the internet, so it must be true!". Someone's attack dogs, please note!

  3. Yes Adrian - one other difference is that an Internet forum or blog (not thus one of course) may have a few dozen or few hundred readers whereas a national newspaper tends to have a readership in the millions.

    The french were responsible for making fake pornographic pictures of the royal family at it. No one took any notice of those and I am sure no one in their right mind would take any notice of the same thing with Adele. What one does take notice of though, is she won just about every Grammy going at the recent awards. ...

  11. The sinister revelation that a seven year old schoolboy who asked a schoolmate " is he brown because he came from Africa"? a perfectly innocent question is reported for racism and his mother was asked to sign a statement requiring her to admit her son was a racist and that he was going to be put on a observation register for racist behaviour, the Headmistress stated it was a statutory duty to report racism in her school. This disgusting treatment of a seven year-old, demonstrates how deep the mind control fanatics are involved in corrupting our children, they would prefer to show seven year olds pictures of daddy and daddy in bed. any comments?

  12. Total and utter bullshit from smug Darby

    "Talking to Steve Squire this morning he confirmed that the weekend activity in London netted over £9,000 towards the GLA elections. I believe the deposit is £25,000 so that's a very impressive start indeed."

    1. 5imon Darby's eyebrows are actually sensors they also act as transmitters so he is in constant contact with Griffin and he relays psycho-babble to any dummy prepared to take notice.

  13. 'Being raped by a gang is normal – it's about craving to be accepted'

    Former gang member reveals how women suffer shocking sexual abuse in return for 'status'

    A female former gang member has exposed the growing levels of sexual violence against young women who join them, saying that many are willing to risk being raped in return for the status of membership.

    Isha Nembhard, who was part of an 80-strong gang in Peckham, south London, said some girls readily accepted that they would be sexually abused when associating with male gangs.

    The 20-year-old said that the problem had reached a point where being raped was becoming "normalised" among many young women. "Girls who are getting treated very badly know what they are getting into. They sleep with a boy and the boy asks if she will sleep with all his friends.

    "It's about low self-esteem and a craving for attention. Even if they know it's wrong, they will do anything to get acceptance," she said.

    "A lot of girls are sort of prostituting themselves to have sexual relationships within a gang and get treated in a bad way. For example, she might know about what happens to girls in the gang but still sleeps with all of them just for the status."

    Nembhard, who was a teenage drug dealer, said that even those who are abused and called "pieces of shit" by gang members maintained sexual relationships with them because they felt "that they couldn't do better".

    She added that cultural and social trends had exacerbated the problem since she left school. "When I was growing up, girls were more boisterous. I used to be a tomboy, but nowadays a lot of girls who go to school are more girly-girly and make sure they put on their makeup and wear the right sort of skirts. It's changed dramatically."

    Nembhard said that girls tended to be more sexually active before the age of 16 than before. "In my day it wasn't like that," she said.

    Social networking sites like Facebook had, she added, helped to encourage promiscuity among young women. "You've got young gi rls exposing themselves on there, making it normal, and so others follow suit."

    Earlier this month the home secretary, Theresa May, announced £1.2m of new money over three years to tackle the issue as part of the government's revamped anti-gangs strategy.

  14. gang rape England continued.....

    Meanwhile, a senior Scotland Yard officer has voiced concern that the problem of young women being sexually abused by male gangs had grown sufficiently large to be classified as a "mainstream issue".

    The Metropolitan Police detective in charge of protecting vulnerable young women from falling into gang culture, Detective Chief Inspector Petrina Cribb, said that, although police were targeting girls as young as 12 to warn them of the risks associated with male gangs, she believed that educating youngsters of the dangers should begin even earlier, at primary school.

    Cribb also admitted concern about the levels of ignorance among young women about sexual abuse, saying that many did not understand that being forced to give oral sex was rape. Cribb, who manages the Met's Heart programme, which educates young people about the risks associated with joining gangs, added: "A lot of young people do not know what is the law, particularly with regard to being coerced into oral sex, which is rape, but some think it is just playing around.

    "Young girls find that they may have no choice – a young girl who is surrounded by a group of boys might feel it's normal to go along with it."

    Former girl gang members say that despite being aware of the risks many girls with low self-esteem are willing to risk being raped by entire gangs to increase their "status".

    The Heart programme, which involves police, local authorities and charities, aims to teach women about relationship issues, rather than the traditional emphasis on sex education. Already 180 girls identified as at risk have begun one-on-one tutorials for the rest of the year, with another 725 workshop places available to teach girls what is unacceptable in a relationship.

    The scheme has so far been introduced in three London boroughs – Lewisham, Newham and Waltham Forest – but Cribb said she felt "very strongly" that every school should be delivering a form of relationship education to empower young women. "We are trying to explain that girls actually have a choice and that consent is key to a sexual relationship," she said.

    Gifford Sutherland of community group Foundation 4 Life, which uses reformed former gang members to educate vulnerable youngsters, said sexual abuse was not the only risk that gangs posed to girls. "Not only are girlfriends manipulated by young men for sex, but they become associates, hiding firearms, carrying drugs, and sometimes these young girls find that they have no choice.

    "The key concern is that this sort of behaviour has been normalised, that they go through an initiation process or they are coerced into sex. We show that is not a healthy relationship."

    Although the Met has no detailed data on the numbers of potential victims, it believes that the estimated 250 active criminal gangs in the capital account for one in seven reported rapes. A survey by the NSPCC has suggested that a third of teenage girls have been forced into sexual activity against their will, while research by the Race on the Agenda charity shows that rape is used to punish girl gang members.

    However, those with first-hand experience of the way in which gangs operate say that the factors driving such abuse are complex.

    Anonymous @ Feb 20, 2012 02:46 PM brings us a piece from the Guardian about gang rape of girl members of boy gangs. Today we have Radio 4 telling us on its news broadcasts throughout the day that 11 men are going to stand trial for grooming and gang raping young girls between the ages of 13 and 15, carefully selected for their low self esteem and broken families. The news reports went into some detail but were at pains to not disclose the fact that the accused are all muslims. The only "give away" that could possibly allude to this is that they all drive taxis or run fast food chains. Everyone reading this will know that the BNP have been harping on about this for years but the establishment chose to ignore it. In fact there was a time in living memory that the BNP did some very excellent work and easily held the moral high ground on many issues. Damn that bloody man for killing it and losing the impetus that so many good people built. The county is ripe for BNP victory after victory after victory if it hadn't been for Nick Nick and his dumb idiots. What would the EDs do about gangs? What would they do about foreign rapers? What would they do about any of the ills that are destoying this country?

    1. Dear Brian, you are so right about the BNP Griffin deserves to be shot, we know the BBC and the Guardian are Fabian organisations so we expect them to hide from the British people the enormity of crimes committed against them. So Griffin should be considered an accessory to these crimes and it is him and him alone who has brought Nationalists to a state of impotence.

  20. The english democrats and the NF are not exactly competing on the same ground so there is no harm in my opinion in a contest. Also to be frank this isn't a battle for first place. Such contests are inevitable at this stage and neednt be harmful. It is only harmful if a victory is compromised.

  21. Err eddy, didn't you say recently, you don't recognise civic or ethnic Nationalists, we are all Nationalists.
    It may not be a contest for first place. All Nationalist party's need to work as one, never competing against eachother, competing only against the Liberal elite.
    If there are several wards up for election, straws must be drawn to see which individual ward each Nationalist party stands in, it is harmful to divide the vote at anytime, especially now after several decades of defeat after defeat and humiliation after humiliation, with time runnig out, sort it out eddy ffs.
    P.S
    Atleast try and get Nationalit party's to sign up for some sort of straw pulling arrangement, UKIP, ED's, BFP, BF even the NF, but not the BNP for obvious reasons.
