How Do I Delete……

    A couple of Tweets from Roger that shed new light on ‘science’ and certainty:         So Roger thinks ‘expert groups’ may be lying to us about just how certain they are about their projections…due to the politics…and Roger himself objects to claims of ‘certainty’ or over confidence in ‘the numbers’….though not when economist Stern tells us we are all going to die in 100 months … Continue reading

Nick Robinson Is An Arse

  Sorry about the title but I think I can’t really take much more of his low brow, lightweight,  twaddle….considering the job he is supposed to do. Thanks to Dave S who pointed out this from Robinson: UKIP immigration policy – the wife test On a day when Nigel Farage launched a nationwide poster campaign warning that millions of Europeans were waiting to take your job, I asked him why … Continue reading

Dear BBC Liberal…..

      The racism of the white wolf who cried Islamophobia     There’s a bee in my bonnet. Let’s talk about the racism of the white wolf who cried Islamophobia. I’m tired of a certain faction of Western liberals, especially white guys, Westsplaining about how anti-Muslim bigotry and Western colonialism and imperialism and international geopolitics provide *essential context* for understanding the sources of Muslim problems, which don’t come from … Continue reading

Rats Leaving Sinking Ship

    The Telegraph tells us about Derek Bateman who left BBC Scotland last year….. Derek Bateman was a long-standing BBC Scotland presenter who now, set up with his own blog, feels free to offer his view of England and Tory policies which presumably made him to toast of the BBC canteen in Glasgow. Here’s a taste of his sarcasm: Sorry for allowing your (English) policies to kill men in … Continue reading

British Jobs For British Workers

      UKIP are under fire….ironically by Labour…for their ‘racist’ advertisements:     Not quite sure how that is racist….it is after all true…..even the first wave of East European immigrants complain about the next lot undercutting them in pay rates!   The BBC have been reporting it at length…strangely concentrating a fair bit on who funded the adverts….but also happily reporting the ‘furore’ about alleged racism.   Even … Continue reading

Google It

    Just a reminder of the fickle world of politics……   David Cameron has declared that “Britain is a Christian country and we should not be afraid to say so”, in a speech to mark the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible. “The King James Bible is a book that has not just shaped our own country, but shaped the world,”   When did he declare that?  In … Continue reading

Weak Start

    This week’s Start the Week had ‘Anne McElvoy looking back at the life of the maverick scientist James Lovelock who pioneered the theory of Gaia, of a self-regulating Earth.’ Like that ‘maverick’ label. Lovelock also looks to the future and the next evolution of Gaia which could lead to the extinction of human life, and a rise of Artificial Intelligence, but the writer and ecologist George Monbiot prefers … Continue reading

Extremist…Moi?

    Just listened to the whole of the Today programme interview with Jack Straw and an MCB rep (Talha Ahmed?) The question raised by John Humphrys asked that as many schools now have Muslim pupils in the majority ‘How should schools cope with that?’…..also asking……‘Do you see this as a problem?’   Ahmed naturally said no, no problem..in fact all the diversity (?) adds value to the wider society. … Continue reading

CBI NOT OK ANYMORE

Have to laugh at the way in which the BBC instantly turns on one of its more usual favourites, the pro EU CBI, the nano-second it take a view they oppose. In Scotland, the CBI has chosen to oppose Scotland leaving the UK and this has caused those quangos who belong to the Scottish Government and who are also members of the CBI, to resign from the BBC. Listen to … Continue reading

THE ISLAMIFICATION OF BRITISH SCHOOLS

Wonder what you reckon to the interview that took place just after 7.34am on Today programme this morning? It relates into the investigation into those schools in Birmingham and the rampant Islamification that took place within them. The BBC, being fair and impartial, sought the views of Labour MP Khalid Mahmoud. And only Khalid Mahmoud. Guess what – Khalid thinks the investigation is confused. I wonder why Khalid never thought … Continue reading

PETER TATCHELL, THE NATION’S MORAL GUARDIAN

God forbid a British Prime Minister should assert that this country has a clear CHRISTIAN heritage. The BBC were always going to jump all over this as Alan has already referenced. I caught Peter Tatchell being given free rein to attack Cameron and more importantly attack the idea that Britain is still at least nominally ‘Christian’. Isn’t this the same Peter Tatchell who is on record for urging that the … Continue reading
