LONDON, United Kingdom - A top BBC presenter used his weekly political show to brand IS "Islamist Scumbags". Andrew Neil is one of the few conservatives at the BBC and is famed for refusing to read the Guardian newspaper in his office. 

Neil dismissed the terrorists saying this was the week "a bunch of loser jihadists slaughtered a bunch of innocents in Paris to prove the future belongs to them, rather than a civilization like France”.

He continued: “I can’t say I fancy their chances Monet to Descartes, Rousseau to Camus, Berlioz to Satie, Daft Punk to Zizou Zidane,” he 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.”

He finished his piece by saying: “You will lose. In a thousand year’s time, Paris, that glorious city of lights, will still be shining bright as will every other city like it. And you will be as dust, along with the ragbag of fascist Nazis and Stalinists that previously dared to challenge democracy and failed.”

Mr Neil said he would continue referring to them as IS because it stands for "Islamist Scumbags".
