Dear Claire,
Would you like to be my guest on Weekly Digest, a news review show I present each Thursday morning for Sahar TV (Iran). Each week we look at three news stories and discuss each for 7 minutes in a 30minute programme.

We like opinionated guests from across the political spectrum. My guest this week is Robert Oulds, director of the BrugesGroup.

You receive a fee of £60.

If you have a free slot on a Thursday morning around 9 am let me know.
Regards,
Chris Bambery

Dear Chris
Apologies for not getting back to you sooner, your email got a little "buried" with the others.

Yes, I would be delighted to participate, but do tell me what I need to do so I can prepare properly!
Regards
Claire

Hi Claire,
We discuss three news stories in the headlines that week for 7 minutes each. I send them out 48 hours before. I can't predict what they'll be much in advance (if I could I'd be wealthy).
Sound good?

Hi Chris
Sure, I'll give it a go if you want, but bear in mind that I haven't done it before.  Is this is to be done by Skype?

22 March 2014 my comment was posted and displayed at his website in response to his speech below.


Fascism and Nazism was a reaction against liberalism and representative democracy.

Fascism was not antisemitic in Italy because Mussolini was not antisemitic while Nazism took a virulently antisemitic form because Hitler was antisemitic, but it was the nature of Christianity to be antisemitic. If you read Mein Kampf, you will find that Hitler did not start off antisemitic and conflates Jews with liberals.

Let us have a different narrative, please, and accept that people who are not naturally political or ideological are made uneasy about radical changes to their country and therefore wish to express their unease so that their government listens to them.

If immigration upsets people, then why continue upsetting them?

If the working classes are no longer fit for the purpose of work then make them fit for purpose, rather than seek to replace them with immigrant workers.

Only good government will prevent the chaos that you fear.

Hi Chris
I could also do the story of the stabbed Spanish teacher if you think that would go down well.
At a pinch I could do the failed peace talks in the Middle East and my proposed solution! http://thevoiceofreason-ann.blogspot.co.uk/search?q=Israel

Please enquire with Sahar TV whether the interview will be streamed live or recorded and put online afterwards. We, your dear fans, are waiting with itchy feet and sweaty palms for this news.

To Chris Bambery
Hi Chris
Is there a problem?  I sense something is not quite right or you would have got back to me by now with the items I am supposed to be preparing.

If you have changed your mind then just let me know, but it is a shame if you have been got at or have had the frighteners put on you!
Claire

Dear Claire,
Apologies but given your political affiliations and views we cannot continue with you as a guest.
Regards,
Chris Bambery

Which views do you have a problem with?  I have so many!
Regards
Claire




I don't expect a response, to be honest.

Don't you think it rather odd that Bambery is now claiming that he was not already aware of my views and my political affiliations until now?  He is after all a journalist.

Do you think the Reds put the frighteners on him? Did they threaten him and his family with violence?

He didn't seem terribly interested in speaking to me to see if I would be OK for TV.  I might have a terrible stutter or be as mad as a hatter, as so many people claim I am.  I suppose all this could even be a form of psychological warfare.

I have contacted Sahar TV to check with them if they do indeed find my views unacceptable with a link to this post.  Press TV are quite comfortable with the British Right last time I looked, and Sahar TV are linked to them, I believe. Either Bambery is doing this for personal reasons, or he has been got at.  Either way the reasons of a weedy white man of the Left tend to be venal and dishonourable.
