    We Opine That Dom Joly Is Ill-Educated…Or An Inverted Snob?


    Not having lived in the UK for 20 plus years, there are probably many ‘prominent’ people there of whom I’ve never heard.

    One such is ‘the British comedian Dom Joly,’ who appears to be either poorly educated –

    – unlikely, because he was a privileged boy who attended expensive ‘independent’ schools’ and got into the University of London –

    – or else he’s one of those inverted snobs who likes to diss any sign of erudition on the part of others. We used to have one who made ignoramus comments here, affecting not to know what ‘mendacity’ meant.

    I eventually blocked his dull-witted comments.

    Intelligent critics still welcome!

    But Doly, whoever he may be, came to my attention with his asinine riposte to John Cleese’s unremarkable observation that ‘London is no longer an English city.’

    ……..

    This self-evident truth attracted criticism, from all sorts of fairly worthless people, notably the Mayor of London, who must have provoked belly-laughs galore by claiming that the capital’s ‘diversity is its strength.’

    Hogwash.

    Multiculturalism is the watchword of the Mayor of London.

    MetroMay 29, 2019
    Following Brexit, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan launched the London Is Open campaign to celebrate the multiculturalism of the city.

    NB   NOT English culture, NOT British culture, but MULTICULT.

    His Honour goes to bizarre lengths to legitimise his ideology in the eyes of British people.

    Get this!

    In fact, much of the terrorism, almost all of it, which has tormented London, and other parts of the UK, has been perpetrated by evil people who can’t stand Britain, who spring from ‘cultures’ that are quintessentially alien, perhaps most particularly in their primitive attitudes towards women.

    ==.

    Sometimes we read that, while the parents or grandparents of terrorists, or other predators, did their best to adjust to civilised values, it’s their children or grandchildren who have relapsed into barbarism.

    Think Rotherham!

    ==================.

    Drearly Doly not only rails against Cleese’s tweet ‘...it is basically a very racist tweet...’

    No, it’s not.

    Black and brown people can assimilate very easily into English or Scottish culture, IF they wish to. It’s all about culture. And culture includes language, which Doly does seem to have a problem with.

    “Even the language is insane, who uses the word opine?”  https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2019/may/29/john-cleese-criticised-for-saying-london-is-no-longer-an-english-city

    The answer, Dullard, is anyone whose vocabulary is not limited by inadequate knowledge of the English language.

      Course Cleese is right!
      Nobody that’s been to London recently can deny it.
      That’s my opinion and so I opine it.

      I lived in the UK till a year ago and I never heard of ‘Dom Joly’ so dont think for a minute you are out of touch.
      We all must have met people like him.
      The office drongo who, if you use a word that indicates you’ve read more than two and a half books in your life-time, burps and says ‘Swallowed a dictionary or wot?’ Then looks around for applause for his wit.
      As for John Cleese, he is correct and that London Mayor confirmed this by saying that London is ‘multicultural.’
      That means it may still have some English bits but those are obviously outnumbered by foreign bits, like the Somali ‘community’ which was on the news last week. They are a tiny percentage of the population but involved in something like 80% of knife crime.

      I never heard of Joly either but I’m quite happy to keep that way.
      He’s a pompous fart, and no mistake.
      I might disagree with somebody but I don’t give them vocabulary lessons, even more so when their vocabulary is better than mine.
