Ken Loach Quotes – Britain’s greatest Film Director!

Ken Loach is my favourite Director. He is highly intelligent and his films always have a pertinent social message that I can empathise with. I like films that make you think. Ken is the conscience of the nation. His films should be compulsory – particularly for Tories who are usually incapable of appreciating human suffering.

Maybe if we tell the truth about the past, we can tell the truth about the present.

I see the lies and despair. Brexit and Trump – a litany of hatred and lies. The media and politicians all have their agenda and no scruples. It’s getting worse. The sheeple are treated with utter scorn and manipulated.

A movie isn’t a political movement, a party or even an article. It’s just a film. At best it can add its voice to public outrage.

There’s a hell of a lot of injustice and rage to tap into.

About Thatcher’s death: Let’s privatise her funeral. Put it out on competitive tender and accept the cheapest bid. That’s what she would have wanted.

Such with and humour. I’m glad they buried her. They just did it fifty years too late.

I turned down the OBE because its not a club you want to join when you look at the villains who’ve got it. Its all the things I think are despicable: patronage, deferring to the monarchy and the name of the British Empire, which is a monument of exploitation and conquest.

Not many people with that calibre of integrity. Too many money-grabbing, power-seeking selfish gits who take the money.

One lesson to learn is that the press and the broadcasters are not neutral. And it seems we have to learn it each time there is a dispute: they are actually committed to one side.

Orgreave taught me that even the BBC have their agenda. The bias is there. The establishment orchestrate out feelings.

In the end the privatisation of war is not acceptable. We shouldn’t be issuing these sub-contracts to these contracting companies because the people who run them are making millions. There should be no relationship between ex-politicians and them, like John Reid and Malcolm Rifkind, who are now associated with contracting companies having been ministers of defence. That’s unacceptable.

It is incredible hoe people like Rumsfeldt are raking it in! Should be a law against it!

  1. We are the people. We ought to be able to just say no to a lot of this stuff. I say no a lot in my personal life by not participating in certain things. But we need more. More of a voice. I feel change is coming very soon. Somehow…

      1. Agenda 21 will see to it that it doesn’t happen. They will falsify everything just as fast. In it’s present form, I foresee the entire internet becoming a complete web of spin and lies.

  2. One lesson to learn is that the press and the broadcasters are not neutral. And it seems we have to learn it each time there is a dispute: they are actually committed to one side… Good grief! How true is that!


      1. Opher, are you telling me that it took up until Orgreave to teach you that the BBC had an agenda? Nothing prior to that had ever left any such impression?
        That is simply unbelievable. I’m speechless.
        That in itself explains everything that has been said by you this past year that had me dumbfounded and perplexed.
        It’s no bloody wonder is it?

        I think it would be safer to say that it’s only now that you can put your faith in the internet as you have quite obviously not been using it to its fullest potential before.

        Was Rumsfeldt a Freudian slip?

      2. Everyone knows that the BBC has an agenda. It’s a question of extent. I hadn’t fully appreciated the extent of that agenda. I’m just gullible.
        I have doubts about the internet too, though. I know everything has an agenda. I wish I had the time to devote to exploration. I don’t.

      3. I’m not sure everyone does – as the BBC continue to run their agenda – which started circa Eastenders. Look at its main channel scheduling times for anything to do with reality and its apparent that’s off their radar.

        I think you’d meant to type Rifkind?

      1. OK – I generalise. There are some great ones. And I like a bit of action nonsense every now and again. It is just that there is such a difference between a well-crafted film and a sensational blockbuster.

      1. Why not put Blair to the very top of that list?
        He doesn’t walk out his front door for less than 50 grand these days.

      2. Look at the UK film industries latest cinematic glory.
        It’s an animated turd titled “Ethel and Ernest”. Maximum bilge.

      3. Crossed wires here, maybe, but I agree with your insight about the revolving door between government and commerce – a scandal that Private Eye does much to expose.

      4. I’d be quicker to point you to the youtube trailer.
        It looks as per the trailer similar to “When The Wind Blows” , but it’s not a nuclear war theme at all, more good old fashioned family values kinda thing.

  3. Reblogged this on Opher's World and commented:

    This seems apt at this time when so much rides on the outcome of an election. Whether we are going to allow the Tories to destroy our public services or not.

  4. Awesome quotes I especially loved the first one! Governments need to stop censoring history to make their country look like the bad guy.

I'd like to hear from you...
