I laughed at Ken Loach - whose new movie "The Wind That Shakes The Barley" has won the Palme d'Or the top prize at the Cannes film festival - being interviewed on BBC Radio 4 "Today" programme this morning. He's an uberliberal self-loather who is still angry about the "sins of empire" and who thinks that Northern Ireland has no right to exist. He's also vehemently against the liberation of Iraq. What a hoot he was!
I was also entertained by the profound thoughts of those Cannes Film jury members who voted for this (accidentally) laughable movie..I'm talking intellectual greats like Helena Bonham Carter, Samual L Jackson, and Tim Roth! These champagne socialists willingly embrace the philosophical pigswill of hard-leftists like Loach, it must make them feel reaalllll good before they fly off in their private jets to the next stop in their backslapping global jamboree. Pass the sickbag! Poor Loach hasn't a clue about the insurrectionists in the Republic of Ireland but that's not surprising - he hasn't a clue about very much based on the childish waffle of his interview this morning. The MSM, and the Cannes Jury, will love a guy who trashes his own country and culture and we must remember that is what Loach the roach does best!
