It just gets worse and worse.

Labour did this.

In OH's link compare the police cowardice with their bullying in the G20 footage. Beggars belief.

Pat's a welcome breath of fresh air, but I really wonder why he hasn't been
a) assassinated, or
b) arrested for hate crimes.

Clever chap....outspoken, witty and to the point.

But he doesn't like anyone really and has the ability to cut down anything that he deems distasteful in our society with too broad a sword at times.

This guy's ace!

Not so sure about the 'balance' presented in the vid OH links to though, considering it's BNP propaganda ;-)

@ The Economic Voice

Example, if you'd please? Not because I'm being obtuse, but because I want to understand your point.

It seems the man hates all religion....

There were other points he raises in other You tube Videos that I haven't the time to dig out but a close inspection of his work suggests there is more than the occasional dissatisfaction going on here...

Hell I am a passionate man and agree with him on certain points but I feel he tends to throw the baby out with the bath water if you see what I mean.

"Some people have a way of getting right up your nose, don't they".

Well, yes, but unfortunately Condell is on that list for me.

What IEV said: he usually starts well, then ends up alienating the target audience who he needs to keep onside. His unhelpful potshots about the burkha were the best example for me: it's a complex question which can't be reduced to Pat's simplistic screaching that women are free to wear what they want - so long as it meets with his approval. His sideswipe at 'feminists' during that was pointlessly snotty; it instantly set the people he needed to recruit against him, meaning he was worse off after he had finished talking than before he started.

There are other examples, but the switch-off point varies with the individual. He's very much in love with his own voice and I do not share his affection. Sarcasm can be funny, but it you need exquisite sensitivity to make sure you don't deploy it against the very people you need to convince.

Pat doesn't have enough insight to even know he's pissing on his own chips. This doesn't matter at all in an individual polemicist, but Condell wants to be an opinion-former.

I don't know of any pro who would hire Condell as an opinion former. Goodness knows they are used to working with egotistical people, but Condell is capable of destroying his own argument because he has too high a ratio of arsehole in his mix, and lacks the humility to recognize it.

I've just watched this guy for the first time. I like Pat! And I'm sure any tolerant muslim with a sense of humour would too. Now why don't you get a guy like this on Question Time. Perfectly deals with the issue of Islamic radicalism in 3 minutes without going fascist and trying to start a fourth crusade. If more people had a cider and a toke the country would be undoubtedly a better place. No wonder they're all so chilled out in the west country!
