John Wight: Roguish Charm Wins Audiences on RT.

This morning on Russia Today the lead story was about Syria.

It was introduced  by  an old friend of this Blog, John Wight. *

Comrade Wight explained the crisis in the Middle East in way which we can only listen to.

It seems that it’s all about a rabbit, called Flopsy, which has got poisoned by Cordelia.

But Bashar al-Assad is standing up for rabbits.

Er…. that’s it.


* John Wight thas written for newspapers and websites across the world, including Pravda,   the Wiltshire  Farmers’  Gazette , Morning Star, Huffington Post, Counterpunch, and Foreign Policy Journal. He is also a regular commentator on RT, Socialist Unity,  and BBC Radio Norfolk (co-host with Alain Partridge) .  You can follow him on Twitter @JohnWight1

  3. He does seem to be part of that highly aggressive, macho-posturing strain of far left activists which (although, perhaps, a minority) put me off that sort of politics for life.

    RT does seem to attract a ridiculous amount of anti-Semitic comments, mainly written in Borat-esque, broken English – in fairness, they are normally deleted reasonably quickly…but stay there long enough to get a good picture of the sort of person who watches/appears on RT.

  7. Tried a comment the other night on Socialist Unity and the little countdown North Korean censorship clock appeared again. I was counted out again as expected. Those people that run SU must bash their meat when someone agrees with them.

  8. It’s a very select group. They don’t let any old riff-raff post on their site: only their riff-raff.
