Mid-Week Open Thread


A couple of weeks ago the BBC brought us a tale of rampant sexual harassment in Muslim Egypt where the victims were to blame…for disgracefully laughing in the street or talking too much and enjoying themselves:

Shaimaa Khalil recalls growing up in Egypt and her first experience of sexual harassment aged 11 #metoo.

We know such behaviour is endemic and blatant in Islamic countries….visitors to Saudia Arabia may tell you that even when dressed as a Saudi and fully covered up they fall victim to worse harassment than they have ever had in the UK or other Western countries.

This is the culture we are importing into Europe.  The BBC reports it in Egypt but covers it up when it is migrants in Europe doing the harassing.  In fact they try to put the blame not on the migrants but on some outside conspiracy…such as the far-Right or ISIS….

Remember Hugh Sykes telling us that Cologne was a Far Right conspiracy?….‘There are conspiracy theories in the air that the New Year’s Eve attackers were encouraged to make sexual approaches to German women, told that it was the normal thing to do on New Year’s Eve. If true, they may have fallen into a well-laid trap.’

Remember the BBC report that said Cologne was an IS conspiracy? …’Some analysts have suggested that IS has encouraged a link between refugees and terrorism in order to foster hostility to refugees in Europe, although it is not known if the latest attack was carried out in co-ordination with the IS leadership in Iraq and Syria.’


The BBC shaping the news to suit its own agenda.

Any more bias list it here…..



You said what?

    Douglas Murray lays into C4s Cathy Newman for her inept interview with Jordan Peterson. Although it is C4 the interview is pretty much symptomatic of so many interviews in the BBC…and C4 is just as lefty biased as the BBC anyway….we just aren’t forced to pay for it. Newman comes with a preset agenda that bears little relationship to what Peterson says and she compounds that by not … Continue reading

Facts….such a terrible nuisance for a news organisation

  Laughed this morning as Sarah Montague got slapped down as she talked about French/British security relations. Apparently Brexit is damaging as a whole and it is inevitable that it will bring problems for our relationship with France and damage our security. The French spokeman said no, not true, you have to consider the facts and that it is not the relationship with the EU that is important but the … Continue reading

Soapy Sopel in a Lather

  This retweet from Sopel pretty much sums up his and the BBC’s world view….as usual Sopel picks one that is about him….most of his tweets seem to be about him and his love affair with The Donald…. Have read three amazing books so far this year. How to Stop Brexit @nick_clegg (insightful and hopeful), If only they didn’t speak English @BBCJonSopel (insightful and funny) and Collusion @lukeharding1968 (insightful and … Continue reading

NHS crisis…in California

  Just some perspective on the NHS crisis…..this all sounds very familiar…….and yet it’s in the US and not an apparently poverty stricken NHS…..patients in tents, store rooms, operations cancelled and ambulances unable to unload patients….. California hospitals face a ‘war zone’ of flu patients — and are setting up tents to treat them An influenza A strain known as H3N2 is making people so ill in California that thousands … Continue reading

Fanny by gaslight

  Libby Purves asks what we have been asking for years now….just why does the BBC employ people at such exhorbitant rates when they could easily get someone to do the same job, just as competently or better, as a Humphrys or Vine at a vastly lower salary? The former Radio 4 presenter said that the corporation ‘clings on’ to stars including Graham Norton and Gary Lineker ‘like frightened toddlers … Continue reading

Jobby flushed down pan

  Radio bore @mrjamesob is a menacing threat https://t.co/bXA7tlFG2x — JOE.co.uk (@JOE_co_uk) January 17, 2018 The above Tweet is from the lefty Joe.co.uk which of course employs gobby Jobby…..and if you wish to be bored to death feel free to take a butchers at one of his interviews.  The grey paint drying on the wall is more interesting.  The Tweet is meant to be witty and ironic, ironic that it … Continue reading

The Bradley Bunch Solution

    Voice-over by Sky’s Julie Etchingham but policy confirmed by Tory MP Ben Bradley.… A Conservative MP has apologised for a 2012 blog post in which he suggested benefit claimants should have vasectomies. In the post Ben Bradley, made Tory vice-chairman for youth in last week’s reshuffle, hit out at what he called a “vast sea of unemployed wasters”. Did think it was in a way actual Tory policy … Continue reading

Is Population Growth a Ponzi Scheme?

  Quality of life or untold riches due to mass immigration? The BBC wants you to believe that we can have a thriving economy only if we keep importing millions upon millions of cheap workers.  They tell us that the benefits are enormous.  Are they?  Are there in fact any benefits?  The best figure they can come up with is the economy may increase by 50p per immigrant…so great value….never … Continue reading

Capital Idea

  John Humphrys [sexist pig] was interviewing a GMB union representative this morning [08:10] about Carillion and its downfall.  The BBC seems to want to shift the blame away from Carillion for some reason and onto the banks and politicians judging by this report….however apparently Capitalism is in the dock even if Carillion management are not. The GMB rep. made no mention of Capitalism or smashing the system and yet … Continue reading

Jobby on the job

Once a gossip columnist always a gossip columnist. Jobby has been spreading fake news due to a inability to  get his facts right….as always. From Guido: LBC leftie and sometime Newsnight presenter James O’Brien helped fake news about the collapse of Carillion go viral yesterday. Keen to find a damaging line, O’Brien tweeted that the company’s chairman is “an adviser to the Prime Minister Theresa May on corporate responsibility”. Nope… O’Brien was later forced … Continue reading

Down the memory hole?

  Carillion, was responsible not only for the design, construction and commissioning, but also for on-going operation and maintenance of the  £135 million project. Eric Shaw, in his persuasive book, Losing Labour’s Soul?: New Labour and the Blair Government 1997-2007, discusses how the NHS was taken to the cleaners when negotiating these PFI contracts. Not only did the NHS lack the commercial expertise, and were therefore required to outsource the project negotiations and … Continue reading

Hijab Hitjob

  For days the BBC gave prominence to a story that a Canadian girl had had her hijab cut off in an Islamophobic hate attack.  Turns out this hate attack never happened….the BBC did report this surprising revelation but blink and you’d miss the retraction, it’s vanished from their pages unless you google it….the BBC doesn’t think it worth filling its pages with stories about Muslims lying about hate attacks…after … Continue reading
