Despite his resignation from the BBC in 1943, when he grew tired of “pushing propaganda,” a statue of George Orwell, author of the dystopian ‘1984’, will soon be erected outside the broadcaster’s London HQ.

The statue of Orwell – real name Eric Blair – will be accompanied by a plaque that reads: “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear,” the Guardian reported on Monday.

Sculptor Martin Jennings told the Guardian: “I was delighted when I visited the site to find it littered with cigarette butts – that is absolutely the place for Orwell, who was rarely seen without a cigarette in hand, to the grave detriment of his health.

He would undoubtedly have been out there in the cold with the smokers for most of his time,” Jennings added.

‘1984’, perhaps Orwell’s most famous work, tells the story of an unfortunate everyman making his way through a fictional authoritarian Britain locked in an everlasting war against an indistinct enemy. In the dystopian scenario, civil liberties are eliminated and the citizenry constantly watched as they are fed lies by a shadowy government organization called the Ministry of Truth.

Plans to erect a statue to Orwell were dropped in 2012, allegedly because the Spanish Civil War veteran was viewed as being too left-wing. For one reason or another, the plan has been revived.

Orwell himself was once employed by the BBC as a producer on the organization’s Eastern Service.

The terrifying torture chamber depicted in ‘1984’ – Room 101 – was even named after a stuffy conference room in the BBC HQ to which Orwell apparently took a severe dislike.

In his 1943 resignation letter, available in the BBC’s online archives, Orwell attacks the corporation’s tendency to broadcast “hopeless” propaganda on India. It was later found that the kind of radio sets the BBC broadcasted for were not widely in use in India, and that the signal was so weak it would have been unintelligible anyway.

The campaign for a statue of the man, who many consider the father of political journalism, was launched by the late Labour MP Ben Whittaker.

His widow Janet told the Metro newspaper on Monday: “Orwell’s resonance is international. Wherever powerful governments falsify events, suppress freedom of information or dehumanize their processes, people recognize the satire in 1984.”

    thanks Eric Blair..

  2. THE WORLD HAS GONE COMPLETELY INSANE, AS IF IT WERE EVER SANE, WITH false gods and idol worship. CAN THEY NOT REALIZE, WITH THESE statues, temples, etc…ARE GOING TO BE BLOW TO BITS, BY A NUCLEAR WAR, THAT THESE false gods HAVE CREATED. THESE PLANET IS DOWNGRADED TO CURSED FOR SURE.

    • its not a statue created to worship at mate..its just a statue or monument..like this:

    • i know what you mean! there’s even people who think there was a guy 2000 years ago who was born to someone who never had sex! they also think he died and then came back to life. they have statues and paintings of him all over the place, and they even kill and rape a lot of innocent people because of Him.

      • I AM A MESSIANIC CHRISTIAN, I BELIEVE IN THE VIRGIN BIRTH, I BELIEVE YESHUAH HO MESSIAH (JESUS CHRIST) DID DIE, ROSE, AND HE SHALL RETURN.

      • I not only believe Jesus was born, and he was assassinated in public, I know, from my own experience, I also know that he is used to convenience by those who killed him.
        And that Jesus was born of a woman without sex with a man, is not the only case, we all know today, that many children are born without lack of sex, I do not remember if also Orwell told us that, or just Hussley said. Anyway, we can all see today that sex is not necessary for children to be born right?
        another thing that I know from experience, xxx, and here I turn to you, because it is not the first time I see you lash out at someone you have no idea who he is: In this life I have had two children with sex, and in my previous life, I had many children, with sex, but my first child, was born without sex involved, and I put my first child the same name who asked me an angel, friend, sent to me by God.
        Whoever has ears, let him hear.

      • There’s even people believe that life popped out of a muddy pool
        There’s even people believe that little green men in space popped up on a planet and came to earth .
        There’s even people who believe that sparrows came from dinosaurs.
        There’s even people who believe in a God called evolution who makes whales out of pigs and birds out of flying monkeys and humans out of apes and dolphins out of bears.

        “By the late 1970s, debates on university campuses throughout the free world were being held on the subject of origins with increasing frequency. Hundreds of scientists, who once accepted the theory of evolution as fact, were abandoning ship and claiming that the scientific evidence was in total support of the theory of creation. Well-known evolutionists, such as Isaac Asimov and Stephen Jay Gould, were stating that, since the creationist scientists had won all of the more than one hundred debates, the evolutionists should not debate them.” (Luther Sunderland, “Darwin’s Enigma”, p.10)

        “The more one studies paleontology, the more certain one becomes that evolution is based on faith alone; exactly the same sort of faith which is necessary to have when one encounters the great mysteries of religion… The only alternative is the doctrine of special creation, which may be true, but is irrational.” (Dr. L.T. More)

        “I have come to the conclusion that Darwinism is not a testable scientific theory, but a metaphysical research programme… (Dr. Karl Popper, German-born philosopher of science, called by Nobel Prize-winner Peter Medawar, “incomparably the greatest philosopher of science who has ever lived.”)

        “The fact of evolution is the backbone of biology, and biology is thus in the peculiar position of being a science founded on an unproved theory — is it then a science or faith? Belief in the theory of evolution is thus exactly parallel to belief in special creation…” (Dr. L. Harrison Matthews, in the introduction to the 1971 edition of Darwin’s “Origin of Species”)

        “What is so frustrating for our present purpose is that it seems almost impossible to give any numerical value to the probability of what seems a rather unlikely sequence of events… An honest man, armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that in some sense, the origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle… (Dr. Francis Crick, Nobel Prize-winner, codiscoverer of DNA)

      • We do not know the history of the Earth because THEY teach us (followers of Lucifer who want to participate with him in the domain of Earth), we can only know the history of the Earth, if we ourselves, we seek the truth

  3. The BBC statue – a symbol of their great truthseeking.

  4. Gee, son…do you remember when you asked me the definition of “irony?…

    Favorite part: “…an unfortunate everyman making his way through a fictional authoritarian Britain”
    “Fictional?”
    I need a good laugh in the morning, thank you!

    Those who seek the truth, however much others try to hide it, they will find the truth.
