    Has anyone else noticed that in the last few months the BBC have been using the word “passing”
    as a euphemism for dying?
    Noticed it first when Nicky Campbell started the trend.
    Seems to be in the vocab for other presenters now!!!
    Why would that be I wonder???!!!

    So, a Jihadi Jail is to be opened to segregate fanatical extremists (or muslims as they’re sometimes called) and prevent them preaching hate to other crims. (All over the media but strangely under-reported by beebistan).

    How reassuring that a mere 16 years after 9/11, our brightest and best have decided it might not be a great idea to lock up hate filled terrorist preaches with other inmates susceptible to conversion and extremism.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4669678/Jihadists-locked-prisons-prisons.html

    “Lee Rigby’s killer and hate preacher Anjem Choudary will be among first inmates of jihadi jail within a prison to stop spread of extremism behind bars
    Dangerous jihadists will be locked up in three special ‘prisons within prisons’
    Up to 28 Muslim extremists will be caged in specialist ‘separation centres’
    It is hoped that putting them together will help tackle radicalisation in jail
    Inmates are now housed in a separate centre within HMP Frankland in Durham
    Two other centres, which are expected to be at HMP Full Sutton near York and at HMP Long Lartin in Worcestershire, are due to open in the coming months ”

    The man the Evil Beeb love to mock may yet turn out to be the Saviour of Western Civilisation, or what’s left of it.

    (I can’t imagine his useless muslim / Kenyan internationalist predecessor, so beloved of the beebistan, giving such a speech.)

    “US President Donald Trump has argued that the future of Western civilisation is at stake in a keynote speech in the Polish capital Warsaw.
    Holding up Poland as an example of a country ready to defend Western freedoms, he warned against the threats of “terrorism and extremism”.
    Criticising Russia, Mr Trump urged Moscow to “join the community of responsible nations”.
    Mr Trump is in Poland ahead of a G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.
    In Warsaw, he addressed a large, cheering crowd from the monument to the 1944 Uprising in the city, on Krasinski Square.
    Poland’s conservative government shares Mr Trump’s hostile view of immigration and strong sense of sovereignty.”

      Must upset the pink bunnies to see the President so well received in Poland. Yes it was a quite deliberate snub to this country and it’s awful media stooges of the left .I also hope Mrs Merkel took note.
      The President should now announce that he will not come here at all. Poland is proud of it’s past and the role it played in European culture and history.
      Monte Cassino and the uprising in Warsaw tells us much about the mettle of these fine people and I for one welcome them here although I am sure their country needs them.

      Now this is sneaky.

      The article you link to is indeed headlined “Trump says Western civilisation at stake in Warsaw speech”.
      See it here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-40515329
      A few hours ago that was the article on the BBC front page. I read it from there.

      Now, at 4pm, the front page article is headlined “Trump tells Russia to stop ‘destabilising’ Ukraine”
      See it here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-40522296
      The former article can be found by direct link, but not on the World or Europe pages.
      The former has been effectively disappeared, without actually being erased.

      The articles are mostly the same, but the former began :

      ‘US President Donald Trump has argued that the future of Western civilisation is at stake in a keynote speech in the Polish capital Warsaw.
      Holding up Poland as an example of a country ready to defend Western freedoms, he warned against the threats of “terrorism and extremism”.’

      Whereas the second breaks up and buries these ideas, instead presenting his “future of Western civilisation” comment in a paragraph mostly about Russia.

      It is as if the BBC has decided it doesn’t want its readership to think the “future of Western civilisation” comment had anything to do with “terrorism and extremism”.

      It gets worse, because a few minutes back I ventured over to the Telegraph, and the headline there is :
      “Donald Trump says West must show ‘the will to survive’ in face of threats from Russia and North Korea ”
      whereas if you watch the video of Trump’s speech, highly edited though it is, the “will to survive” comment at 1:25 is in the same passage as “do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders”. From Russia? From NK?

      Conclusion… there appears to be a concerted media effort to pretend DT didn’t say what he just said.

        I saw that original paragraph Hawk, so i went and watch the full speech, everyone, every man and his dog that listened to the speech knows he is talking about the Islamic marauders, but that speech, broke taboos and liberal glass ceilings, it was the beginning of the end of the Muslim invasion, it will soon be acceptable to start reversing the flow as more eastern bloc countries standfast against their euro-dictators.

        It really is hard to accept just how traitorous the bbc has become, not only distorting news to hide the horrors of islam, but down right faking it, how can that have happened in the UK, an organisation funded by the tax payer, it is just so utterly appalling.

    The bBC and how it soft soaps everything Jeremy Corbyn says in which to make him more pleasing to the electorate.

    Today JC spoke to at a business conference here is how the bBC reports this story:
    Jeremy Corbyn: UK must embrace technological change
    The state should work with business to help the UK maximise the benefits of automation and other technological changes, Jeremy Corbyn has said.

    And here is the Guardian version:
    Jeremy Corbyn: UK firms must pay more tax to fund better education
    Jeremy Corbyn has told a business conference that companies must expect to pay slightly more tax if Labour is in power, arguing that using the money to invest in education would hugely benefit Britain in the long term.

    The bBC, the propaganda arm for Labour.

We are all told that multiculturalism works, despite Migration Watch disclosing it cost £96 BILLION between 1995 and 2011 (£17 BILLION 2014/15). A net loss to the British taxpayer rather than a net gain to the Exchequer. But, hey ho! this is the Conservative “Money Tree” which, in my view, could be better spent elsewhere.

    Wimbledon on the bBBC. Not really bias, but yet another example of the disdain with which beeboids treat their taxpayers. Every match, they start showing on one channel, then interrupt to switch it to another channel. BBC1 > BBC2 > Red button … There’s no logic to it so why do they do it?

      Having lost virtually every other sport, they like to fiddle with the schedules to make it look as though they’re still a major player. And of course, just like the Chelsea Flower Show and similar significant and nationally popular events, filling both channels for several hours a day at minimum cost frees up loads of dosh for more jollies and creative staff appointments.

    I live in the London Borough of Barnet. I was just wondering if in the rest of the country do you have
    a party political broadcast on behalf of the Labour Party for half an hour after the 6PM National news on the BBC?
    We have a programme called the Londonistan programme where most of the presenters and reporters are from
    the ethnic community. Actually this is OK because there are only about 30% indigenous Londoners now. This probably
    the only programme on the BBC where positive discrimination is not used by the BBC, so far as presenters and reporters
    are concerned..
    Every evening Riz Lateef or Assad Ahmed , Jeremy Corbyn’s number one fans OR their script writers churn out
    as much praise for Labour as they can . Whilst dishing out as much filth about the Tories as they can. I reiterate do you
    have the same kind of programme in your neck of the woods?

Basically nothing to see here move on you are racist. Even now they are still trying to blame his fuckups on boris. Anytime the twat wants to pontificate the cameras are there for him to spout his pr bollocks and anti tory opportunist shite.

    All presenters in the South West Spotlight programme, based in Plymouth, are white. The ‘discrimination’ is very subtle. If showing a class of children for example the one ethnic child is always in centre focus and interviewed first. After a while it is obvious that none of them are Tories this even applies to the local radio output. I always remember the ‘relief’ they exhibited when a local politics professor (American) assured them there was no possibility of Hillary not winning! I find your post quite depressing as I can see the same thing here at some point in the future.

      Gary Lineker should have an interview with Nigel Farage, Mark Steyn, Thomas Sowell, Jacob Rees-Mogg and ask them why they thought it was a good idea to leave? Why they had a difference of opinion, or is that not allowed?

      Mr.Lineker can find more names here at the BBC website – where he works – EU vote: Where the cabinet and other MPs stand {bbc.co.uk – 22Jun2016} for a different opinion, if he wants to seek one, he probably passes these people in the BBC halls many times a day.

      If Gary still lives in Richmond Park Constituency he will be fascinated to know that his MP, Zac Goldsmith, voted to leave the EU so he can go and have a chat at an open doors surgery and take some crisps for the wait in the reception area.

      Gary could send one of his researchers here, so rather than looking up who scored what and when they could see what Zac Goldsmith voted for {theyworkforyou.com} and if he agrees with him or not.

      Gary could spend some time looking into how the EU Works and that it represents what he believes in.

      He could listen to David Cameron on speaking in the USA (6.5.2014) “..but I don’t want to be part of a Country called Europe. I want to be part of a Country called Great Britain.

      Gary can ask Angela Merkel why Greece’s Military spending was protected from Austerity with Germany selling Greece Military Equipment (Industrial)?
      Greece’s austerity doesn’t extend to its arms budget – {guardian – 21Mar2012}

      Gary Lineker is rich, famous and has plenty of time to find the answers to all these things, and should be able to back up his ideas with sound reasons. He can also seek a difference of opinion if he really wanted to.

      Dear Mr. Lineker does this help? “Leave the EU” + “Happy Either Way” @65% // “Remain in the EU” @35%

      So imagine discussions about Brexit now – it’s no “divisive” at almost 50/50 like people said – it’s now decisive. Again, see the change in words that cannot be controlled! It’s 65% to Leave the EU! WIN!

      But see how the Remain value collapses from 48% to 35%.
      It forces a different story.
      “For the Many (who voted Leave), AND the Few (who didn’t vote, but were happy either way)” = 65%

    Wiki has this to say about her…

    “”In 1997 Fairbairn was appointed as Director of Strategy for BBC Worldwide, later promoted to Director of Strategy & Distribution, and also became a member of the BBC’s Executive Board. She was responsible for delivery of the BBC’s services to viewers, including on cable and satellite. She managed a budget of £150 million and negotiated the BBC’s major distribution deals with Sky, Virgin and BT. She helped to develop the BBC’s digital strategy and renewal of their charter, and was instrumental in creating One BBC. In 2002/3, she created and launched Freeview – a joint venture between the BBC, Sky and Arqiva, which became one of the UK’s most successful new television services.””]

    Manager jailed for stealing £46,000 of school dinner money {bbc.co.uk 6Jul2017}
    A finance manager who stole £46,000 of school dinner money has been jailed.
    Jacqueline Robb, 54, of Laburnum Avenue, Manchester, used the funds to buy foreign holidays and clothes.
    The school where she worked spotted that £952 was missing from its bank account after an audit in autumn 2016. It later identified a loss of £46,011 between April 2012 and December 2016.

    So over four years (2012-2016) £46,000 – almost £11,000 per year and nobody notices? No secondary checks? Big arrow going down on the bank spreadsheet? Very strange.

If the face was not white would this story have been headlined on the front page?

    Hard to say who provoked who

    According to the BBC, All quiet on the western front. Lying bastards

    9pm: Hamburg Police have released a statement on the ongoing violence. 
    It said the ‘black bloc’ of protestors had broken up into smaller factions heading in the direction of the St Pauli and Altona districts. 
    Demontstrators have continued to attack police and emergency vehicles, and there has been damage reported to construction sites, banks and business premises.
    Scores of parked cars have been set alight. 
    The statement added that seven police officers had been injured as a result of rioters hurling stones, large objects and flares at lawenforcers.

        All the BBC have to do is report the facts as they see them at the time and not mess with editing to tell a different story. Three different people will see three different things. But at least you’ve got camera’s and other journalists and crowd’s recording information to get a better story than ever before.

        Grenfell Tower: Cladding safety tests possibly flawed {bbbc:alternative suggestion}

        “Residents had also been told their new cladding would be made of zinc. Despite their differences, both types of cladding have the same official fire rating.
        – what rating standard?
        – is it plus of minus something value?
        – is it the same in all Countries or different in the UK?
        Then we get …
        “Lord Porter, chairman of the Local Government Association, said fire safety tests on cladding from high-rise buildings were flawed.”

        OK, if this is true then change the story title to …
        Grenfell Tower: Cladding safety tests possibly flawed

        Now we chase safety testing, rather than the £300,000 saving that makes it look like the Council cut costs and lost lives all because of Austerity. No! They made a decision on a fire rating – show me the brochure and see if I would make the same decision.

        That leads onto “Austerity Kills” placards … next time I see an “Austerity Kills” placard, I want to know how many people it has killed and what can be done about it. If a Labour MP decides to cut the ‘Prevent’ funding – will that kill? Any idea how many it will kill?

          Not that anyone will read this, buried in the sequence but……
          We have heard that every panel tested across all those tower blocks have failed a fire test.

          But what the bBBC have not reported is …was the fire test the correct fire test in line with current regulations?
          Or was the fire test concocted randomly, perhaps to a more exacting standard, and thus encouraging a politically expedient test failure?

          This important point reveals whether the manufacturers made products which did not meet legislation, or whether in fact the legislation was inadequate. Makes quite a difference.

          I suspect it suits the BBC marxists if the story can be “nasty capitalist firms kill people” rather than “public sector shortcomings kill people”

    Good!..ship the whole family out of UK if they can’t afford to stay here. As a tax payer I do not want to subsidise her or any dependents of hers while she is unemployed. (which I hope is for a long time). These people need to get the message ..you are not needed here..you are not wanted here! I speak for myself of course but I have had quite enough of your breed’s shenanigans!

    Speaking personally I would feel much safer if ALL security staff at ALL British airports and seaports were Caucasian..i.e. certainly NOT of Pakistani extraction.. and thus not potentially “open to persuasion” as the authorities clearly feel this “sister” may be.

    Mind you I do have to admit that based on life’s experiences I have little time for the Pakistani race!
    ..and that’s my choice ..’innit!!

    p.s I was abducted by aliens from planet “XC-2221”..(well that’s where they said they were from) back in ’89 and I dislike them greatly too.

    I belive that the “worm is finally beginning to turn” here in UK too. We are just starting to wake up to what is going on with OUR country…thanks to people like Tommy Robinson, Mark Steyn and Douglas Murray.

    As Winnie said “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning”

    Speakin personally I’d say buy and read “Enemy of the State” – Tommy Robinson:

    and Douglas Murray’s:

      The butter price strangely increased some time ago, along with some other dairy products such as cheese and ice cream, at a time when the BBC was weeping copiously over the dire situation of UK dairy farmers and the collapsed milk price.

      Rather than attacking the middlemen, the collection companies and processors and wholesalers, who had all seen their costs collapse due to the fall in the oil price, the BBC back then was busy suggesting that we (ie. their sweaty listeners and viewers on lower incomes) should all pay a lot more for our milk. They didn’t have the nous to spot the increase in the butter and other milk product prices and ask some journalistic type questions.

      The BBC often appear to be out of touch with reality and what is happening in the real world.

    The Canadian woman was everything you would expect from Canada. Why should the West be entitled to any position anyway, what’s so good about it’s culture?

    Dannett with his head firmly wedged in a bucket of horse sh*t was as wet as Cameron understanding nothing outside of the upper class London bubble he inhabits. All the correct buzz words were used, such as ‘so called’ Islamic State and that we should rejoice about multi culturalism and Islamic terrorism.

    Here’s a piece of insidious subliminal bias of the blink and youll miss it kind.
    Yesterday we heard a story about poor care in care homes.
    On the bBBC news, the first featured part of this story was of mistreatment of a very elderly lady
    The second feature was of an excellent care home.
    But look deeper…..
    In the first story, the elderly lady was very jumbled mentally. How long does a care worker have, within the budget, to ask the lady to do something. The lady may not understand the instruction any longer. What is the care worker to do in that case? Was the lady classed as EMI (elderly mentally infirm)? We were never told. This does not justify mistreatment but the word needs a contextual definition with regard to EMI residents. How for example do you deal with an extremely confused elderly person who has just pooed themselves in the middle of the dining hall at meal time? Do you work ‘against their will’ if they cannot co-operate? These are the harsh realities.
    In the second story, the bBBC just had to mention (but knowing them it was deliberately chosen) that the home was ‘not for profit’ (what are the chances of that and why was a comment needed at all?). Needless to say, the furnishings etc were very nice and everything was going swimmingly. But also, and crucially, but again not pointed out, the residents, though frail, were mentally alert and could respond to requests made by staff, and generally communicate capably.
    So the biased BBC were not actually comparing apples with apples. Yet to the casual observer, the take away was ‘for profit bad, not for profit good’.
    North Korea would be proud of such mind-indoctrination.

      During my time in the NHS I worked in an EMI unit, and saw first hand the difficulties the staff deal with on a daily basis. Once gentle beings in another life, the elderly mentally ill through no fault of their own, can become excessively strong, have no sexual inhibitions and behave in an infantile manner. I have seen big male nurses punched in the stomach and spat upon, all of course without retaliation because they know that the real person that once inhabited the ailing body is no longer there.

      I do not defend for one instance staff in Care Homes who abuse in any way the elderly and infirm, but sadly Care Homes are run for profit, and pay the lowest wage to those who wipe bums but have no skill set or training to manage the mentally infirm as those I’ve mentioned above. Hence the reason why the residents in such Homes are usually sat in high chairs in a circle around the room, having been coshed with prescriptive medication is to keep them in a ‘calm’ state. My father ended his days in such a Home, but I deliberately visited him several times a week – at odd times, no pattern, so I could keep an eye on him and to how he was being treated. In the main the staff were brilliant but were run off their feet with the high demands that the elderly need. Admittedly staff turnover was very high, some couldn’t cope, minimum wage was an issue, and most just weren’t suited, so until these are addressed, then the outlook for the ageing population is not to be relished !!!

        Brissles
        Moving away from my specific biased BBC comments.
        Your thoughtful comments (i too make regular visits to an EMI home) just need a little challenge.
        First I have no problem with companies wanting to turn a profit. The alternative is ruinous.
        Second, care home pay is low but these relatively (not totally) unskilled jobs have replaced other unskilled jobs of yesteryore. We do need some of them. And, the pay is not that bad, depending on where you live. The minimum wage gets you a mortgage to buy a house in say South Yorkshire. But clearly not in say Luton.
        As with much public sector pay, national pay grades prohibit a proper market, so a PE teacher in Swansea gets the same pay as a Maths teacher in Amersham. But are the needs and demands really the same? Ditto with care home staff.
        As for training, care home work does need some skills (safeguarding, basic first aid, lifting techniques etc) and certainly interpersonal skills such as patience, a caring nature, and a thick skin. The level of training given is very variable of course but it would be simplistic I think to align it solely with fees and pay.
        The whole thing is a subject the bBBC do not cover well, looking for a sensational, preferably anti-government headline rather than a sage review. Successive governments have disgracefully tried to kick the ball down the road. Ironically Treezer tried to address it at election time and look where that got her. To coin a phrase, she screwed up, but she wasn’t wrong.

      Didn`t he play a blinder last night?
      And in so doing, he ensured a civilised QT , just for once. Good audience as well in part, God Bless the good sensible fold of the Mudlands…will go by Burton on my holidays now by way of thanks!
      Next time he`s on-may well have a Rees Mogg party where we all get dressed a toffs, bring our nannies in , impregnate willing Catholic gals with nice houses( only if we have to though!)-and speak eminent sense with big words. The man is wasted as PM…much more effective as the REAL Boris(who`s an utter fake by comparison).
      Rees Mogg is the real thing. great guy.

    Well if I dont get “bias of the week posting award” this week i give in !
    Bellow is a cut and paste of the report into Child Abuse by a “Koran Teacher” (Arent they called Imam’s when they do something good?)
    As always the story has related topics at the end. So a Muslim accused of and convicted of child molestation is related to the topic of CARDIFF ??? Really…….beyond contempt they really are taking the pi**.

    “As a result of the verdict and today’s sentence I believe there may be members of the community who may now feel confident enough to speak to the police or our support agencies,” he added.

    A spokesman for the children’s charity NSPCC said: “This was an appalling breach of trust and Sadiq has rightly received a significant prison sentence for these heinous offences.”

    “immigration is thought to be usually positive and benefits 4 out of 5 existing residents”

    BBC Radio 4 – 50 Things That Made the Modern Economy, Series 1, Passport
    How much might global economic output rise if anyone could work anywhere?

    Would this really work? …
    – work on a farm in North Korea and get paid in praise and adoration over a speaker from Kim Jong-un (you might be able to leave)
    – head chopping at the weekends in Saudi Arabia in Deera Square (Muslims only need apply)
    – next onto Japan to oil the robots in the robot hotel, where robots vacate whilst the humans work oiling the robots
    – help build Mexico’s wall to stop their citizens from leaving and escaping to America
    – off to join the Guidance Patrols of Law Enforcement Force of Islamic Republic of Iran (Muslims only need apply)
    – then to Africa for a weekend break, which is now completely a national park because everyone has emigrated to Germany

    Polish firms employing North Korean ‘slave labourers’ benefit from EU aid {telegraph.co.uk –
    may2016}

    As many as 800 North Korean “slave labourers” are working in the shipbuilding and construction sectors in Poland, in some cases for companies that are receiving financial support from the European Union. … The UN estimates that North Korea earns as much as £1.6 billion a year from labourers it sends overseas, with that money used to fund the regime’s nuclear weapons and missile programmes.
    – this implies that harder sanctions on North Korea creates more cheap labour in the EU?
