Paris ‘Jihadist Losers’ Earn Rousing Tirades From BBC TV Presenter and US Comedy Show Host
“Thank you” says English language broadcaster France 24, in a 50-second tour by image of the support shown Paris and the 130 slain (and more than 300 wounded) victims in last week’s Islamist terror atrocity.
Watch the short tribute here:
Meanwhile two TV personalities on both sides of the Atlantic, the BBC’s Andrew Neil and US comedy show host John Oliver, launched their own tributes to Paris — with, in the case of the latter, a robustly Anglo-Saxonic tirade of indignant abuse.
According to a report in the UK’s Independent newspaper: “Andrew Neil (seen in the clip below) delivered what some declared to be his finest opening monologue to date on the BBC1 show The Week on Thursday in response to the Paris terror attacks.

“He followed the example set by British satirist John Oliver by highlighting Paris’ unparalleled culture and warning Isis it stands no chance of destroying such an impressive civilisation.
“While Oliver (see the NSFW video clip below) opened his monologue on the US TV show Last Week Tonight by describing the militant terror group as ‘gigantic f**king a**holes’, Neil dismissed the terrorists as ‘a bunch of loser jihadists [who] slaughtered a bunch of innocents in Paris to prove the future belongs to them, rather than a civilisation like France’.
“I can’t say I fancy their chances Monet to Descartes, Rousseau to Camus, Berlioz to Satie, Daft Punk to Zizou Zidane,” Neil said. “Liberté, égalité, fraternité and crème Brulee. Versus what? Beheadings, crucifixions, amputations, slavery, mass murder, medieval squalor and a death cult barbarity that would shame the Middle Ages.”
