    Highlights (many!) of Rees-Mogg on Question Time last night.

    The man is gifted. He controlled the panel and audience. Listen to the applause.

      He’s commanded two full page articles on him in the Mail and Express this week – both full of praise, and apparently he’s gaining such momentum nationally that he even has a fan club on social media !

      Yep! this is what desperation gets you,
      JRM highlights ?…. f-ck me Al he s nothing but the “soundbite kid”, flopping from one thing to another
      Another plummy posh boy, harry potter with egg already on his wand, as a landlord, who voted against the law to ensure housing is ‘fit for human habitation’ . All from the stately home of course, you know the one that f-ckwit Hammond siphoned 7.6 million to, of taxpayers money to.
      I had to laugh, someone earlier said “plummy and posh” was my argument,
      … no it wasn t, that’s just a Jacob Really Smug irritation .
      He s just the usual underhand Tory , nothing new, while he was happily denying more money for those most in need, Rees-Mogg was happy to accept a £7.6m bonus from the Treasury. In the Autumn Statement, as Hammond announced that stately home Wentworth Woodhouse will receive £7.6m to fund its restoration. Luckily for Rees-Mogg,
      oh … it’s his wife’s ancestral home. In typical slimy Tory fashion Rees-Mogg is also well known as a filibuster. He is one of those MPs that deliberately wastes parliamentary time to ensure backbench bills are unable to get off the ground, let alone be voted on. He attempted, for example, to talk out a private member’s bill repealing the bedroom tax another a bill to tackle the current dangers to our NHS.
      Just like Camoron or Worzel Johnson the erm Eton/Oxbridge entitlement boys … he epitomises everything that is wrong with politics

      political establishment business as usual
      DRAIN THE SWAMP … Rees Mogg is included

      And there is sooo much more, but you know I just couldn t be bothered to type it out

      on QT … it comes to something when even the greens have to point it out to you

        They really need to have an unlike button because Nogginator’s little rants against JRM are becoming increasingly boring.

        Must be the second time in a couple of days that I’ve read him prattle on about JRM voting against or for the landlord thing and making childish digs about his appearance.

      Dear Dover,
      Thank you for the effort and posting . I don’t watch QT any more because it’s generally a leftiephon run for the benefit of dimbleys bank balance.

      However looking at the faces of both pans lists and audience JRM had them under a spell caused by clear thought and explanation which is so rare.

      He could be the English version of Trump in the sense of being the exact opposite – if you understand – the reserved but precise English versus the brash loud American – but sharing a charisma which even a dimbly couldn’t undermine.

      Caroline Lucas looked like a 14 year old in a good school being told things she never new and the fear in the labour bloke has obvious . Thanks again

    Dinner lady suspended after Manchester attack demonstration

    The school should be immediately shut down for reasons of hatred and traitorous beliefs against the country’s right to free speech. Give the school dinner lady a 1 million pound payout for being patriotic. To be paid out of the teacher’s pension funds which will act as a deterrent to any further stupidity on their part.

    Constantly I’m told the teachers are demanding a pay rise. They must be joking. They clearly have too much time on their hands. Their holidays are far too long.

    They make sick with all their lazy, socialist, politically correct, middle class whinging.

    Some Tory wants the Notting Hill Carnival re-routed in the light of the Grenfell Towers tragedy.
    But Sadiq Khan-and our liberal media-accuse him of having a “gentrification agenda”-so the Carnival must go on as usual. No surprise there.
    When labour get into power, rest assured that any marches WE might want will be getting banned for health and safety reasons…but when it suits the Left to foment revolution and stir the pot for Corbyn…well,none of that “respect for the victims”…” overstretching our public services”…kind of excuse stuff is there?

    How do the media get away withthis anti-May, anti Brexit stuff. For a couple of days now, I`ve noticed that the endless chipping away at our vote meant by the BBC and ITV.
    Basically-can we do a Norway and not leave the EU please?
    And here`s the CBI, here`s Hague, Maude and other has-beens to tell us why we need to aspire to be a basket case with a paultry economy like them.
    As opposed to Switzerland who DO have an economy.
    We`re Britain-noted May sitting by Trump, Xi and Merkel in Hamburg….so we are NOT Norway are we?
    But James Mates says she`s got no mates.
    How do the media get AWAY with all this endless moaning-and is anybody building a case against them for their endless treachery?
    They can`t slag off 17.4 million, so want May crippled and broken instead by proxy.
    Who`s setting these endless lefty foxes into the henhouse-and shouldn`t we be fighting back?
    If we can`t even get Trump into our country safely-can`t put a Maggie statue up in Trafalgar Square-and can`t resist re the license fee-well, Islam will wipe us out.
    At least the Poles will go down fighting-rather think we`re giving up on our nation at times.

    The Beeb printing a fair story when they could pretty much point the finger of blame at any target of their choosing? I wouldn’t believe it unless i saw it with my own eyes, despite the bracketed caveat “This isn’t about Trump (entirely)” http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-40534768

    They even mention that the violence is from the far Left, although obviously can’t directly name Antifa for fear of spoiling the narrative from previous coverage of ‘protests’ in the States (and their painting them as peaceful protesters or even the far right!) http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-40529446

      Dave,
      I’m not so sure, the bBC article still manages to blame the Police:
      German protester Christian Luetzeler told Reuters those turning to violence were “really shooting themselves into the foot”. “But at the end of the day, the people have in fact been provoked,” he added. “The provocations still continue: not one politician from the government of Hamburg has come onto the street to de-escalate the situation. On the contrary, it is always pushed further.”

      Which is strange as I wrote about this last night and there appears to be a lot of cars set of fire for no reason what so ever;

    Radio 4’s ‘Front Row’ (19:15-19:45) tonight included repeated attacks on President Trump, who was accused by wet lefty presenter Jon Wilson of having no knowledge of Western classical music and being likely to fall asleep during (or walk out of) the performance of Beethoven’s Ninth at the world leaders’ summit. He was still on the same theme as the programme ended. Pathetic and embarrassing, even by the low standards of the BBC.

    By the way, is Jon Wilson another Dimbleby? David and Jonathan represent at least one Dimbleby too many, in view of what their father Richard was in the BBC. Wilson’s father is former Arsenal goalkeeper and League/Cup ‘Double’ winner (1971) Bob Wilson, who presented Football Focus on the BBC and worked for ITV too. Wilson junior has all the right attitudes that his paymasters require.

    Friday’s Newsnight ties itself in knots as it keeps reminding us that the London Fire Brigade is formed of ‘heroes’ while trying to push the line that it is incompetent/not equipped to deal with the ‘one-in-70-year-fire’.

    The BBC should stop trying to create ‘scandal’ stories and instead wait for the results of the inquiry, (but that can’t begin until the BBC gets its choice of gay, female, muslim, ‘undocumented’ marxist to tell us that ‘Thatcher dun it, innit).

    As an aside, shouldn’t ‘everything’ be running fantastically well now that the EU, the UK, the Met and the London Fire Brigade are run by women? It probably would be if only Hilary hadn’t been cheated out of her due by the ‘Pussy Grabber’ in Chief.

    This morning we can’t help but notice the BBC happily following the left into a fit summer madness.

    G20 Protests. Reflexive protests. Let’s protest capitalism, a system that has lifted billions of the world’s masses out of subsistence poverty and continues to do so whilst every brave experiment into the marxist utopian alternative has ended in chaos and bloodshed.

    London Pride March. A criticism of these events is that the participation is largely due to public sector workers ticking their diversity boxes – what do we hear today – “The event will be be led by the Emergency Services”. Oh and a rainbow flag will be projected onto some or other public building. What a metaphor that is!

    Always hoped the Dimbleby dynasty might live to witness their own downfall – who would have guessed it might well eventually be at the hands of a BBC diversity firing squad replacing them with a tart in a turban. The BBC again herald the rise and rise of Nadiya. She has another new show.

    Just for variety the BBC gives us another diversity issue to worry about – Gypsy kids are under-represented at Uni. A nice young non-travelling Uni gal with all the right-on views is at pains to tell us it’s not ‘cos they don’t want to go to school, it’s ‘cos us static tax-paying. law-abiding non-travellers are prejudiced. An actual former Irish Traveller – or Person of that Heritage or somesuch then tells us just about the opposite – school and university needs to adapt to suit their particular tastes. Someone ain’t telling the truth! Personally, I don’t give a gypsy’s…

    Just me, or do others hereabouts discern that with that Corbyn and his mates gone quiet and the BBC left to its own devices it has gone into lefty summer meltdown

    News not available from the BBC needless to say:

    The Swedish Government does not want to discuss the problems much less deal with them. Absolutely amazing. I suspect that when all goes completely wrong shortly, the “Leaders” will find themselves strung up, Mussolini fashion. You must watch the short documentary film.

    Meanwhile, in the UK, we look forward to another 538,000 immigrants this year. Mainly muslims. The question is, will Treezer better that 2015/2016 figure? – from past performance, she will certainly give it a good try on our behalf!

      For all the time and effort the bBC has devoted to Grenfell, I’ve yet to see any mention of the above. The day after the fire, I did a little research and found pictures which substantiated the discarded waste angle. It wasn’t hard to find as its on the Grenfell tower blog site:

      As for fridges, the vast majority of these people are third world immigrants, they think nothing of purchasing second and third hand white goods, the risk with that is self explanatory.

We have no manufacturing industry to speak of, the coal industry has gone, our magnificent steel industry – what’s left of it, been taken over by the Indians – Tata, wool and cotton mills long disappeared, there is a car industry of sorts although again Tata bought into that. I’m not including all the smaller family firms that manufacture engineering parts etc, or the whisky distilleries, but everything we buy is China stamped, or ‘made in the EU’ !

      Quite a lot going on by the looks of it ….

      The following export product groups represent the highest dollar value in UK global shipments during 2016. Also shown is the percentage share each export category represents in terms of overall exports from United Kingdom.

      Machinery including computers: US$60.3 billion (14.7% of total exports)
      Vehicles : $51.7 billion (12.6%)
      Pharmaceuticals: $32.6 billion (8%)
      Gems, precious metals: $27.5 billion (6.7%)
      Electrical machinery, equipment: $27.1 billion (6.6%)
      Mineral fuels including oil: $26.2 billion (6.4%)
      Aircraft, spacecraft: $20.7 billion (5.1%)
      Optical, technical, medical apparatus: $17.2 billion (4.2%)
      Plastics, plastic articles: $11.2 billion (2.7%)
      Organic chemicals: $10.8 billion (2.6%)
      Vehicles were the fastest-growing among the top 10 export categories, up 80.8% for the 7-year period starting in 2009.
      In second place for improving export sales was the aerospace category which gained 72.7% led by significant international sales for airplanes and turbojets.
      UK exported gems and precious metals posted the third-fastest gain in value up 64.4% thanks to booming gold and platinum shipments.
      Mineral fuels including oil led the decliners down by -34.5%

    Such a shame, BBC, all that downmarket pandering for nothing:

    Never mind the Tories, another British institution has the lost the young: the BBC

    “In 2014/15, the number of TV licences issued was still just about growing, yet it had become decoupled from the growth in households – while the number of households grew by 236,000 the number of licences increased by 88,000.”

    More than one reason for that, perhaps?

    “……..it still seems to be 1936 in the minds of many BBC people. They cannot see the generational timebomb ticking away in front of them, and maybe won’t be until it is too late.”

    Quite.

      It would be interesting to see the average age of a licence payer, though as it’s by household probably not an easy figure to get, my suspicion is that the more mature of the populace are contributing the bulk of it. The danger here is the BBC somehow cobbling together an extremely unpopular case for a slice of general taxation should there be a rapid decline in revenue, unlikely, but a possibility if they continue dragging their heels towards the inevitable.

    Prof Margaret MacMillan Oxford Don, no less.

    Who she, you ask?

    Well Lloyd George knew her father ‘Her maternal grandmother, Olwen Elizabeth, Lady Carey Evans, DBE, was a daughter of David Lloyd George’ – well near enough.

    ‘MacMillan’s sister Ann was the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)’s London correspondent for almost forty years, retiring in 2013, and is married to the British journalist Peter Snow, making Margaret the aunt of their son Dan Snow.’

    Keep it in the family, eh?

    ‘On the ten-year anniversary of the September 11 attacks in New York, MacMillan wrote an essay on the consequences of the acts, in which she dismissed the power of Osama bin Laden and stressed the secular nature of the Arab Spring revolutions that deposed Hosni Mubarak’ – well, she got that one wrong.

      Sharia and revenge are cheap, clearly laid out and sanctified. The Pakistani law is slow, expensive and provides no justice or deterrent.
      Similar to us I`d say. These Chechen nasties and family vendettas, barbarisms are exactly what we`ve imported…and the likes of Rowan Williams and Lord Phillips said would be alright.
      The Chechens will be a nasty tough little breed, Putin hasn`t squashed them has he?
      All these psychopaths are doing is using their religion to sort out women and terrorise the region, so Islam will become the natural and only form of justice wanted.

    “Jack Monroe” (born 17 March 1988)[2] is a British writer, journalist and activist who has campaigned over poverty issues, particularly hunger relief, and has published a blog and several books of “austerity recipes”. As a non-binary person, Monroe rose into prominence for writing a blog titled A Girl Called Jack, and has since written for publications such as The Echo, The Huffington Post, The Guardian, and The New Yorker. Monroe has campaigned alongside various British charity organisations.

      I have a liitle bit of news for “Jack”: if you have female genitals, you are a woman. Since “Jack” produced a child, she is clearly the owner of a womb and a set of ovaries, so she is a woman.

      A few unfortunate people have parts of the male and female sex organs. It is very sad for them, but they might legitimately be called “non binary” or “gender fluid”. The likes of “Jack” Monroe, on the other hand, are just deluded attention seekers.

      You can have sex with anyone and in any position you like, “Jack”, but you are, and will always be, a woman.

        I think I’m right in saying that the unfortunate people you refer to are still “one or the other” genetically and can be fertile, but only one set of gonadal tissue is active (the usual jokes don’t work in practice). I say “think”, because I understand there are extremely rare sex differentiation disorders that only researchers are familiar with.

        The attention seekers you mention are probably doing a great disservice to those with serious, genuine, irreversible abnormalities.

          Due to the MSM we have reached a point in our society where we are are standing on the edge of a abyss.

          The BBC and friends have driven a bulldozer through all the established moral boundaries in the name of “freedom of speech” and seem particularly obsessed with all things about sex and particularly gay sex. This mainstreaming of the “private” has also normalised and allowed a flourishing pornography industry which has become much more accessible to everyone including minors.

          This obsessing and focusing on the “gay community” because they are a favoured minority has all been In the name of “freedom” of speech. Yet at the same time anyone who raises any objection or who wants any sort of healthy debate on the subject has been either “shut down” by the homophobic accusations or has been pursued by the law (as in the recent Ashers bakery case)

          Because all debate has been shut down, and the interests of favoured minorities pushed relentlessly (the MSM and particularly the BBC) has been able to neatly sidestep any of the absurb and obvious contradictions to freedom which are evident. Particularly Islams attitude towards homosexuality, or the freedom of everyone else to visit some public toilets or parks without feeling that some people will assume they are “up for it”

          This default press antipathy to debate involving favoured minorities has also enabled those who want to harm us to spread their own poison (and here I am referring to some Islamic preachers) behind the protective screen of press censorship.

          Because the press has neatly compartmentalised society favouring some communities over others they have helped to destroy the integrity of our spirit and one nationhood to a point many do not really know what our values as a nation really are.

          No-one in their right mind wants to return to the days of making homosexuality illegal. But just as in normal sex I dont particularly want to see it paraded 24/7. Whats private should remain private.

          Whilst on the face of it this mind numbing gay twerking fest appears harmless – In the long run it is symptomatic of a decadence and lack of belief in our own traditions and culture that could well be our undoing.

      Reportedly 60,000 people were asked what was their favourite British food and drink. Bacon sandwiches, roast dinners, full-English breakfast, Yorkshire puddings and beer appear in the top ten. All haram and not part of the sainted Nadiya’s ‘British’ repertoire.

          certainly many on very good pensions and the pay off when the mines closed was generous .
          Irony is of course is that there would have been huge pressure to close coal mining cos some( not me ) thinks coal warms the globe .

          This was exactly my thoughts Taff when I heard he was going to address the Miners Gala. I hadn’t realised these ‘galas’ were still in existence, but clearly tens of thousands turned up, so they must be ! I would hazard a guess they would have been the children and grandchildren of those that actually DID go down a mine decades ago – and would probably cry for Mummy if they experienced half what those miners endured whilst at the coal face.

      Hmm me neither how is Stephen Fry married to a young boy something to be celebrated – Tom Daley going out with some old pervert TV Director – it is sick. I’m not gay but I don’t want a ‘I’m not Gay ‘ day every year .
      And while we are on the subject could we use Gary Lineker’s ears to maybe gather wind-power? It would help with that damn changing climate . Personally I want the climate to be exactly the same every day and if we sign up to Paris we will have saved the World – not actually quite sure what the perfect temperature is? and how they are going to stop the 20 degree swings we get most days but the BBC know best

        Indeed and get him to bring those 4 answers to “Big Ears” he has on his twitter page..they should make a difference! Are they all his progeny or some random “fans”? If the former ..with whom were they “made”..more than one woman I’d guess..but I don’t know for sure & I am now fascinated (as someone told me categorically that they weren’t 4 random illegals that had been adopted!).

      Taffman,
      Apparently the Italians are finally getting annoyed that their country is being taken over under their feet.
      The wonderful humanitarian cab service taking illegals off the hands of smugglers and bringing them the the EU have no thought of the consequences .

      I cannot understand why no one has used their military to destroy the ports of origin

      • JimS says:

        I don’t think a port is needed to launch these migrant boats. A sensible ‘rescue’ policy would offload the migrants, seize/destroy their craft and then return the migrants from whence they came.

        If a Sicilian fisherman got into trouble off the coast of Sicily and they were rescued by a passing French frigate one wouldn’t expect them to be taken to Bordeaux. A ‘rescue’ would land survivors at the nearest convenient port, indeed doing that in the current situation would improve the availability of the rescue craft.

        Clearly what is going on is not a rescue operation but an assisted passage scheme.

      Not unable. Unwilling. For reasons I can’t begin to fathom, because the inevitable outcome must surely be obvious even to the most self-deluded.

        https://www.gov.uk/government/news/prime-minister-pledges-to-control-and-reduce-immigration

        Now, if Theresa would enforce that Tory promise as her prime commitment, she would strengthen her position with the electorate and most of the British people – we are a small island and we have a shortage of houses, hospitals and school places.
        Its common sense.

          You and I both know she has no intention of fulfilling that promise. God knows that governments of all political persuasions have had enough chances. They don’t have the balls to resist the siren voices of the BBC and its likes which would brand “racist” any party that did so.

          And yet anyone who listens to people’s concerns would know that such actions would be immensely popular, #despiteBBC. But it needs someone with a Trump-like personality, who cares not what the media says about him or how deranged the opposition becomes, because he knows how to bypass the media.

    I don’t think Al Beeb likes President Trump and wants the deal to fail despite the will of the people of Great Britain.
    We the people of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland have much more in common with the United States than we have with Europe.

    did a search on this website – “Migrant crisis: ‘Hipster right’”..no result..so will post this from AlBeeb which I found both interesting and rather refreshing…I wish them well..the “Hipsters Right” I mean!:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-40505337

    “Migrant crisis: ‘Hipster right’ group trying to stop rescue ships. Fiercely anti-immigration and anti-Muslim, its aim is to stop mass migration to Europe. With headquarters in Austria and France, the group may be small in size, but its message is starting to resonate in Italy – a country where sympathy for migrants is wearing thin.
    As the number of people seeking to reach Europe rises again, Italy continues to be the major point of entry for those arriving illegally on boats – particularly in the south.
    However, attitudes are hardening and now this new “alt-right” movement says it will do whatever it can to protect Italian identity and culture from outsiders.”

    “…The stunt failed but the group has now managed to raise more than €70,000 (£62,000) in less than three weeks, which it says it will invest in its “Defend Europe” campaign.”

    I googled “Defend Europe campaign.”..and I seemed to be blocked!..surprise!!..try it ..may just be my VPN?
    http://defend-europe.org/en/support-us_en/ gives me “Error establishing a database connection”

    and then I see this from the New Statesman (what..Corbyn & Flabbott..LOL)
    http://www.newstatesman.com/world/2017/07/defend-europes-plan-block-migrants-just-far-right-setting-sail-med:

    “Defend Europe’s plan to block migrants is just the far right setting sail on the Med
    Don’t let them pretend they’re motivated by anything except anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant xenophobia.
    more power to their elbow!”..oh right (no pun)..fair enough..I’ll move on then!..nothing of value here eh!!

    Then I see the next search “hit” (that isn’t blocked)..:
    https://www.rt.com/news/392319-france-anti-migrant-paypal-block/:

    “PayPal blocks donations to far-right campaign hampering migrant rescue efforts in Mediterranean
    Published time: 15 Jun, 2017 01:09”
    PayPal’s online payments system has blocked contributions to a fundraiser by a French far-right group, which planned to charter a boat to hamper migrant rescue efforts in the Mediterranean. The blocking followed public outcry and a social media campaign.
    “Our policy is to prevent our services being used by companies whose activities promote hatred, violence or racial intolerance,” PayPal said, explaining the move to French-language Rue89 website. The US company limited itself to a short statement, explaining that its privacy policy prevented it from commenting on a specific PayPal account.
    France-based Generation Identitaire (Generation Identity), backed by similar groups from across Europe, launched its “Defend Europe” campaign in early May.

    I’ll happily donate £20..& if many tens of thousands do that we might just have a chance of helping these guys & stopping this madness if they can get their collective act together.

    It might be a £20 punt ..but there’s more at stake than the outcome of tomorrow’s 13:40 at Ayr (my tip at 6-1 with William Hill is “itsalongroad” !!).

    If only someone from their outfit can properly organise a crowdfunding type event..hope you’re reading this guys.
