    On the BBC website they have a video of 5 changes Trump has made which you might have missed. Obviously all negative, played to scary music – what paragons of journalistic integrity they are. We all know how the use of scary music is the hallmark of a good journalist, as we saw during Panorama: The Kremlin Candidate.

        I suspect that Trump, having dismissed the BBC with the ” There’s another beauty ” quip, probably doesn’t give them another thought.

    Latest BBC Website headline ” Corbyn vows to overturn rigged system “. A Martian looking at the BBC website would almost believe that Corbyn is the PM and Krankie is the opposition leader.

    Apart from Martians, do the BBC really think that this crude propaganda crap fools anyone ?

        All headlines are Corbyn, Treezer relegated to a small space below him. Amazing !

    Here’s how the biased BBC help their Labour friends.
    Black female (tick, tick) Labour MP Dawn Butler gives a total grade A1 car crash interview which even Eddie Mair has trouble controlling. The wreckage is clear to all.
    The bBBC cannot really avoid reporting this, so they do. And they have the audio on the website.
    But how to get Dawn out of the deep hole she has dug herself?
    Easy,. You get to the end of the audio file and ‘coming next in 4 3 2 1 seconds’ it’s …………Dawn Butler in full audio and video, giving her well-publicised speech in the House of Commons and using sign language !!!!!

    Ohhhhh, isn’t that so cute. You see, these totally hopeless Corbyn apologists are all cuddly and friendly really.
    You ought to vote for them.

      Funny that as Fox news are reporting that a car stopped, a man got out and fired his AK47 into a police car:
      France: Policeman shot dead

      The bBC website supports the TV news:
      “Police sources quoted by Reuters news agency say it may have been an attempted armed robbery.”

      Which is strange as Reuters are reporting the following:
      “A person who fired on police on the Champs-Elysees shopping boulevard just days ahead of France’s presidential election has been killed, the source said. A police source also said there had been two assailants, and a witness told Reuters that one man got out of a car at the scene and began shooting with a machine gun.”

        That interview is hilarious. And here is the BBC’s problem. The more airtime they give to their Labour sweethearts (which they will of course), the more it will be blindingly obvious to anyone left watching their propaganda that Labour really are a bunch of cretins. The whole thing is falling apart for the BBC – you only have to read the comments on the HYSs about the election to see that people absolutely despise the Labour gang of Thornbury, Abbott and the rest.

      Taffman – I really do not know what The Teezer is playing at on this.
      My gut feeling is that historically she has been less than keen to deal with this problem and hopes it will all go away. In addition she has people like Pret a manger on her back who want to import cheap labour which we ultimately will end up paying for.

      I think she put the feelers out on this via Karen Bradley seeing what reaction she got and Karen did the normal – we need the brightest and the best bollocks (except people are starting to use their own eyes rather than just accepting what these identikit party climbers come out with).
      Certainly in the short term The teezer ends up looking good because she appears as if she has put her kitten heeled foot down on the issue. If she was truly committed to drastically reducing the numbers she would have stated this and given detailed plans a long time ago.
      I suspect she did not get the reaction she hoped for, so she has just stuck the whole festering issue back onto the backburner and will probably have another go at dropping the targets after she is re-elected .
      Its only a few hundred thousand a year or so (with high birth rates) who do not want to embrace our culture – I dont know what we are worrying about. Obviously worrying about demographics is for wussies!

    As always, its easy to spend other people’s money. Money that comes out of the hard earned wages and taxed from the people that can least afford it . The same people enduring long waiting times in hospitals. People who’s children can’t get a decent education and people who’s parents are stuck in poorly manned nursing homes.
    The simple answer – stop the government wasting our resorces on Foreign Aid .
    Foreign aid should come from charity, say Al Beeb’s Red Nose funds etc.

    Usual forty days in widows weeds to mourn the (eventually correctly stated) death of Brian Matthew…used up a lot of green ink on this one, so not been here as much as I`d have liked.
    (Oh-and some bloody masty “unsupported protocol” crap that stops me getting to this sainted sacreid site as easily as I used to).
    Where do we start FFS?
    Heard some bloke gently chiding the “cyber criminal community” on the BBC sofa an hour ago-apparently they risk getting a more challenging interview from Lidl if their previous hacking for IS (or-and let`s be balanced here- against the US State Department too!).
    And Charlie Stent and his purple-panted poppet next door simply feared for the plight of the e-commerce bitcoin family should such spikey, headstrong youth NOT play a role in tomorrows economy,
    For clearly they can already “hack it” in their current gigs…albeit with somewhat inappropriate, disappointing atttudes maybe?

    We PAY for this…oh, and all the Paris stuff seems not to include Islam…not a mention of those sainted words Islam or Muslim yet.
    But as long as Le Pen gets no credit, no votes etc…that is ALL the Left care about.

    This is the reason why the BBC and the Government seems so obsessed with “fake news” and shutting down many U tube sites. They say it is to reduce terrorism but in reality (just as in the hate crime nonsense) They will want to use legislation to control what we know so the globalist message goes unchallenged.

    Why an American went to Cuba for cancer care

    I know you probably think that Cuba is a hateful place, run by billionaire despots who have stolen everything from the people they subjugate. Even their land, houses and food. But no! The BBC insists that despite the US’s wholly unfair sanctions, (boo-boo), this fascist state has stumbled onto a drug and an American is taking it!

    Proof positive that Corbyn, The Guardian and the BBC have been right all along.

    There was me thinking how terrible it would be to live in a country that imprisons more journalists per capita than any country other than China. It has 30 maximum security prisons, 80 normal prisons and 200 work camps, for its fortunate inhabitants. It only allows people a small loaf of bread a day and one piece of chicken a week. It won’t allow its indigenous folk access to phones, internet etc, .

    But if they are treating a US citizen for cancer then wow! Let’s not bother checking it with doctor’s opinions in the west.

    It’s a good thing the BBC are doing so many items on Fake News isn’t it, people might believe what they read.

    Some here get upset about the BBC’s use or non-use of the word ‘terrorism’. The BBC have argued that “one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter” but that hasn’t stopped them flipping their view from time to time.

    My own definition of terrorism would be an action that is designed to strike terror in the civilan population, the terror part is achieved by the unpredictability of the timing and location of the action. In other words are the public constantly ‘looking over their shoulders’? Using a definition of this sort the true ‘lone wolf’ can’t be a terrorist if they only get to carry out one action and are then, say, shot dead. A suicide bomber may be a terrorist though if they are acting under direction; they may be dead but others could follow, the suggestion being part of the terror.

    The idea of ‘acting under direction’ creates new difficulties of description. Just lately the authorities seem to be working on the basis that unless an attacker has an ISIS membership card in their back pocket there is no terror involved and, of course, (‘card’ or not, it has nothing to do with…etc.) What they choose to ignore is that there doesn’t need to be active direction.

    One can hardly miss that there is a new enemy of mankind, the diesel engine. Shouldn’t something be done about it? Suppose a bus depot goes up in flames. Suppose it gets reported. Suppose another bus depot gets torched. Organised ‘bus terror’ or just an unbalanced individual exposed to too much Roger Harrabin and another individual just looking for ‘fun’? My point is that there needn’t be a command structure, there doesn’t even need to be a desire to create ‘terror’, just a desire to take part in the ‘battle’. All that is needed is an idea, an idea that might be in a book, a book with special protection.

    Perhaps there are no terrorist attacks. Perhaps they are all warriors.

But absolutely no mention of the massive immediate gain of UK fishing waters, surely a hugely popular gain for Scotland, Wales and NI, and England, and possibly a significant vote winner for decimated fishing communities on June 8th ?
