    “Had it not been for the fact that my (unmarried) partner is British, and that our daughter, too, is British, I would have liked to leave the UK after the referendum,” she said.
    “I felt unwelcome and unwanted.
    “As it was, I felt forced to apply for British citizenship, which was tedious, lengthy and difficult, as well as an expensive process.”

    You can rely on the BBC to promote the views of some miserable person as typical. Is she really that representative?

            “Becoming British” is a misnomer. What is usually meant is acquiring British citizenship.
            Becoming a citizen is a legal process not a cultural one. The advantages of becoming a citizen are legal and economic.

            You are right, and I do not accept that you can become British if you were not born in Britain and do not have long standing cultural ties to Britain..

            My wife is Norwegian and has lived in the UK for approximately 30 years, and she would never dream of applying for British citizenship.

            Her view is that you can be given a right to reside, but that you should not be able to change your citizenship. She is born Norwegian and always will be Norwegian.

            I guess it boils down to whether you have pride in your country of birth. Whether you have any feelings of nationality.

            I can recall when we were first married, about 30 years ago, Norway was not in EFTA and it took about 5 years before she was given a permanent right to reside in the UK. We had to go through the general boarder control and if the boarder guard annoyed her, she use to lecture them on how wonderful Norway was. She use to say I come from a rich country not a 3rd world country like the UK, we don’t have homeless people sleeping on the streets etc etc. giving them a 5 minute rant on the wonders of Norway.

            Back in the 1980s one could often see Norwegians wearing a T shirt or a badge on a ruck sack saying: there are only 2 types of people in the world, those that are Norwegians and those that wish they were Norwegians. The irony was that they actually believed that.

            They are very nationalistic, and many people would fly the Norwegian flag each day, and it would always be flown on Independence Day, Birthdays, Christmas day . No politician would ever dare criticise someone for flying the national flag. If a Norwegian politician had tweeted like Emily Thornberry, they would have been out of a job. They would have been shamed and would never get re-elected

            A pity that the liberal left have prevented us from having pride in our country and are doing their utmost to erase its glorious past which we should be proud of, not ashamed of.o

              Unfortunately, the Norwegians who took over the British conglomerate Trafalgar House did not cover themselves in glory, promising a more egalitarian regime but delivering the exact opposite.

              They spent a fortune on North Aston Hall in Oxfordshire for the exclusive use of board members, only allowing the plebs the occasional visit when the tax implications of directors’ benefits was pointed out. They ended up selling it at a loss. There are other examples. Grotesque hypocrisy.

Trump is bad , Brexit is bad , photos of every nationality under the sun (except English) all passing GCSE’s and A Levels. Budding black astronauts accidentally getting stabbed in East London. I only pick it up for a laff on the way home.

      Hi Lock13 – Did Britain really have a choice regarding George Osborne as Chancellor of the Exchequer? The choice of MPs to choose from at the General Election was fairly woeful – packed with inexperienced, poorly educated wannabees. Osborne’s cv was dreadful and he only got opportunities because he was born into privilege and had political connections.

      If you go through every single MP in Parliament you will find it is packed with low quality, inexperienced wannerbees with their own personal and external agendas. There is a crisis of political leadership in this country and no-one is talking about it. I am all for Brexit but have no confidence in the quality of the majority of our politicians.

        The low quality, spineless and talentless politicians is a major problem for our Brexit negotiations.

        I would not wish to see politicians negotiating an exit deal. they cannot arrange a piss up in a brewery, and have absolutely no understanding of the real world, or how to secure a commercial deal. Look at the mess they created before we had even served the Article 50 notice, and how we had compromised matters by all this talk of soft Brexit, second referendum, economic disaster, and then we had the fiasco of the General Election. Talk about screw ups.

        i would much prefer experienced hard nosed commercial negotiators handling the exit negotiations. JCB and Wetherspoons were in favour of Brexit, so I would much prefer to see some of their guys dealing with matters.

      Possibly. Maybe through his brother, who converted (I suppose the BBC term would be ‘upgraded’) to Islam and took the name Mohammed. Prior to being struck off as a psychiatrist.

I would wager a bet that he converted to Islam in order to prevent the risk of his beheading at the hands of the family and community he was marrying into it, when he decided to marry Bangladeshi born Ms Rahala Noor. A quick google reveals “he had to convert to Islam” in order to marry her.

        In my opinion the BBC are risking the lives of the public. If this is the start of large organised multiple location terror attack then not reporting anything whatsoever on TV could lead people to go about their lives like any other typical Friday night. If the known facts were reported the public could make their own minds up whether to stay indoors tonight.

        Personally I would avoid London totally.

          People from the shires are avoiding London and certain other cities. The PTB know this and are in a funk over it. Hence the lies and the failure to report incidents .
          It will not work as this sort of deception never does. In fact avoiding London is a sensible act of self preservation. The chance of being involved in an attack is slight but there is a chance so why would anyone put themselves or their children at risk? Human beings do not act stupidly where their children are concerned.

            I have posted this story before.
            I travelled to Camden, not far from W2, to pick up my stepdaughter who had got herself into ‘financial problems’ (a regular occurrence).
            Whilst waiting for her mother to sort out luggage etc. I went to buy a paper. I then noticed that I had been ‘clocked’ by an ethnic on a bike who kept re-appearing and staring at me.
            As a 15-16ST ex rugby player he seemed to loose interest when I smiled and ‘approached’ him.

            As the smiling guy above demonstrates – they hate that but can’t deal with derision.

One of the panelists foolishly posited that it was a shame she had won the contest with a boring old British recipe; expecting no doubt something more exotic from a woman who wears her religion on her head. The other panelists pounced on the virtue mis-signal…. Surely, one of them purred, she IS a traditional British woman!” Aaargh!

    So, in the very heart of London, there is a potential terrorist attack on the monarch’s palace and it’s all but ignored by our state broadcaster.

          I was trying to be generous. My true views about what we should do about Muslims in Blighty cannot be put down in print. Nor Lawrence and the victim industry. The government knows there was never a mandate to change the colour and culture of Blighty so it knows the ordinary British don’t like it. So rather than allow the British to “express themselves ‘ about what successive governments have done to ruin us they choose to brain wash and use propaganda through influential areas such as al Beeb,

        That’s strange as the link takes you to the blogger website. As blogger is owned by google, I doubt it would be affected by a virus. That said a quick check shows that the following sites did get flagged up by at least one AV progam in 2014 as seeded with the Future Worm TikusTeam.exe

        I run 2 separate AV (paid for) programs on my computer and I actually scan my computer everyday. I can only presume that you have received a false positive. That said, I would still be careful.

          So I am not sure what is going on, but as no-one else seems to be getting this message – perhaps there is an issue with my laptop and / or the AV software I am using.

    Both of the above whilst of around the same length of time as the bBC video, explain so much more and point out that this is about early Christianity in the Holy land, funny enough before Islam came out of its cave. I quote from the latter link:
    “The inscription cites 6th-century Roman emperor Justinian as well as Constantine, who served as abbot of a church founded by Justinian in Jerusalem. Archaeologists believe it will help them to understand Justinian’s building projects in the city. The full inscription reads: “The most pious Roman emperor Flavius Justinian and the most God-loving priest and abbot, Constantine, erected the building in which (this mosaic) sat during the 14th indiction.” Indiction is an ancient method of counting years that was used for taxation purposes. Archaeologists said the inscription suggests the mosaic dated to the year 550/551 AD.”

    Lovely SJW article on Beeb website about Notting Hill carnival, about how those nasty racist Police don’t like being spat at. They have Stormzy – their favourite ‘grime’ artist, whom they worship as a role model for young men- to say how it’s not fair the Police pick on them and not revellers at Glastonbury.

    Here are some lyrics from Stormzy’s peaceful album ‘Gang Signs.’

    “I’ve got the big size twelves for my feet
    Your face ain’t big for my boot.”

    “All of my mandem move so foul
    Dead MCs, blud, leave me alone.”

    “I start merking when I’m under attack
    Should’ve thought twice before you opened your trap
    Come into a nuclear war with a strap.”

    BBC always happy to cultivate the politics of disaffection. Personally i would be more than happy if the police had let the batons fly at Glasters – it might have knocked some sense into our snowflakes so they realised that away from Islington it can be a hard old world out there and actually there are people quite similair to those our friendly neighborhood Stormzy sings about (or worse).

    Maybe if a few more of them at turned up at Glastonbury and done a few stabbings these snowflake kidz may start to think about what they are inflicting on themselves and on us too.

    Then again maybe not – I suspect any violence of his sort would have presented nothing more than an aftermath selfy opportunity , and the bragging rights that they went to Glasters the year it “got real, dude”

          Oak, it’s rather sad but I ditched the telly and the LF completely in 2005 and became a radio regular. Now I find that not only am I not listening to programmes on R4 that previously were musts – Book of the Week, comedy, You & Yours, after lunch comedy/quiz, Afternoon Drama, Feedback, Moral Maze, Book at Bedtime, etc., – even while working, I am now switching off more and more and am enjoying the silence, the relief from the BBC blether.

          In addition, now that I am forced to sign in to listen to BBC Radio via a PC, I’m finding that that is an unwelcome hassle and am starting to think ‘why bother?’.

          The BBC are losing their audience at the Youth/Young adult end of the spectrum. They are in danger of losing me, entirely – for radio as well – at the other end of the age range. When it comes to the point where I can have a free TV Licence, some years ahead, I am not sure I will bother.

          If the BBC is losing its business at both ends of the age range, in time the two sectors will join up. What will the BBC do then?

    At the end of the interview, Justin Webb (I think) asks a question on an unrelated item: arming the police. In the 8am News, that becomes a ‘headline’.

    I am just being told by the BBC web-site about a tragic accident on the M1 near Newport Pagnell with many fatalities. It appears to be very serious.

    The BBC have been droning on for 36 hours or more on Radio 4 (with items also on their web-site) about Bank Holiday weekend travel chaos on roads and railways, some of the coverage was quite pitiful in terms of intelligence and quality. Indeed they revisited this subject on the TODAY Programme (R4 7-9am) but did not mention this accident. As it was coming up, specially flagged as Breaking News on the w/s, I assumed it had only just occurred while the TODAY Programme was on air. The BBC could, of course, have included it in the 9am News but I was already switching off to avoid Saturday Live I did not hear any reference to it.

    I was surprised to learn just now that the accident had occurred at 3.15am (BST).

    “Although there was a widespread expectation that war would cause society to return to Victorian ideals about the roles of men and women, instead it started challenged traditional norms.”

    The beebistan Film programmes on TV and Radio salivating over Detroit. This is so up their street. Innocent blacks brutalised and killed by racist white cops, with the cameras lingering sadistically on the violence.

    The net effect of such films? Actors, directors, and producers get to feel all sanctimonious for their virtue signalling; blacks feel even more aggrieved, enraged and entitled; whites even more cowed; more race hate is generated all round; race and community relations are set back a few decades; but never mind, everyone involved in the film gets an Oscar, so it was worth it.

      I saw a McDonald’s ad recently at the cinema, which would have led one to believe that Britain’s population was 85% BAME or mixed race.
      Some of the worst propaganda against Britons is now delivered via advertising.

        Al,
        I have decided to come out and admit to be a 65 year old white heterosexual male who speaks good English , albeit with a northern accent, and I have no disabilities and don’t have any particularly serious mental issues ( wife disagrees with that ), I own my home and don’t use food banks. And I am in a rant.
        What hope is there for me? I am ignored by advertisers apart from Saga and Spec Savers. I am at the bottom of the police priority list. I am despised by the BBC and the National Trust along with most other institutions in this country. I once felt at home in this country . In fact I used to be patriotic but now the country I loved has been replaced by one I increasingly dislike. We used to be a pleasant and cohesive land , bound together by deep cultural and historical ties , in which our democracy flourished and some of us , perhaps naively trusted the state broadcaster.
        Then without any democratic vote we were forced to endure the immigration of millions of folks who had cultures and values very different from ours but which they refused to change. We were told that we would have to change our ways to accommodate these invaders and that it was racist if we didn’t. This policy of putting the invaders before our own people has continued for twenty or more years. Yet they are still allowed to despoil our country , our young girls being the most disgusting example of this. I now think that I am at the bottom of the heap in what was my own country. To say I resent this is to put it mildly , I am Very angry about what has happened to the country and to millions like me who paid our taxes , obeyed the law , tried to be sensible patriotic citizens. No one on the ‘other side’ will get any help from me .

          Both my grandfathers fought in WW1 and suffered with lifelong injuries and both had brothers killed. My father and his brothers fought overseas for the entirety of WW2. I once felt very proud of their efforts and sacrifice but, now I feel it was all a terrible, shameful waste and I HATE all those who have brought me to feel this. If here is an afterlife, how do I explain what happened to my ancestors?

            CB – while I can’t answer your question perhaps I can give you some meaning for it.
            I’m sure you are aware of the saying that those who don’t learn from history are destined to repeat it.

            The factor that seems to repeat itself in many of the conflicts that humans have engaged in since we discovered salt preserves meat about 8,000 years ago is that the evil power seekers are ultimately overthrown and a more intelligent balanced society results.

            One element that I can identify that makes this almost a given, is by looking at those who desire power. I can almost guarantee that if I were to ask most here that if I was an angel and offered them ultimate power of life and death over everybody else in the world or continuing their lives with friends and family, such as they have, most if not all would select the latter.

            Why this would be the case is that most here are free and independent thinkers, who are able to look at facts and think things through to a logical conclusion and make judgements based on what is then seen. Therefore few here will feel themselves mentally inferior and are passionate about their conclusions, yet still open to other views that might increase their visions.

            So it’s worth understanding who are those who seek ultimate power?
            It can only be those who have an inferiority complex, however disguised. Only by achieving power can they convince themselves and believe that they are really superior, regardless of real consequences to others around them.

            However, because of this inferiority complex, probably a result of the way they were brought up, and consequently their mind never really developing, they are inferior thinkers. Which is why our side will always eventually win a war against them.
            This is what history shows us.

            Now if we are to learn from the lessons of history, the next time we are victorious we must hold on to power to prevent the inferior types from seeking to fill those positions. Hopefully too we will make a society that ‘inferior’ beings are no longer created and all see how to develop their minds properly.

            All this is to say – your grandparents, father and uncles efforts were not in vain.
            We may not want power, and after winning the war just want to return to our families and friends to further our joy and fulfilment. But we have a responsibility to hold on to power to prevent it being misused again in the future.

                Your pessimism is understandable given the ‘climate’ we live in here in the UK.
                Other than a few in the media there are very little, if any, voices of reason.
                Brexit is a good example however, that despite our media and politicians doing their utmost to keep us under the EU thumb, most subjects decided they wanted OUT. This shows there are plenty of voices of reason out there, well aware of what’s really going on, but we can’t expect them to be given an outlet. This does not mean that if push comes to shove there wouldn’t be a civil war, as seems quite a possibility in the future.

                Not to mention other nations in Europe and around the world who do not accept the same bullshit that’s been hoisted on us.

                For sure the ‘forces’ we are up against differ from previous wars, and we need to find the way to counter their strategy. The fact that we are able to go into new territory and think things through is why I believe we will ultimately triumph.

                Don’t lose hope!

          Top post ! I am 61. Sold my house in UK last year. Shifted all financial assets overseas , outside Europe. Yes, risky . But is having all your eggs in the Europe basket less risky ? The only family I have in UK is my mother, 92. This was a deliberate policy when I could see which way the UK is going. All very sad, but I find the UK quite depressing now. I am an alien in my own country , so what is the point in being there ?

          Fully understand all of that. Too reasonable for a rant.

          I notice that you didn’t feel obliged to insert a caveat about not being racist. Too many people do and, in my opinion, it gives the impression that you’re on the defensive, braced for a hammering.

          According to some on the Left, I am a racist. I suppose this whole site is. However, I never explain and I never apologise. Stopped caring years ago and, guess what, I still have plenty of friends and even my family still speak to me (with one exception, which is a blessing).

            Lord Wreath (like the name)
            I think that the modern definition of racist ,developed by the liberal left , is someone who is not happy to see their country and culture being taken over by others. Long ago, before the liberal left were allowed to change the meaning of words to whatever they wished, it meant believing that your culture was superior and wanting tio impose it on others. I am may be judged by some to fall foul of the modern definition but not the second. I can of course think of a whole religion that is guilty of the older definition across every country it is present in.

        In Marxism, the workers (Models used in adverts) are more important than the customer. With the advertising industry being infested by left-wing Arts and Media studies parasites, its no wonder this is happening. You also get this with the Marxists of the Advertising Standards Authority. Apparently the feminists on the authority have decreed that only white males should be used for washing-up liquid and vacuum cleaner adverts.

          Me too Richard, if there is an alternative choice, I will not patronise those companies who have diversified away from the portrayal of the majority of the population ie white and Christian. In all areas of life the erosion of this category is being felt. Why are we the only ones to see this ???? I’m also at a loss as to why criticism is lodged at the Beeb for not employing enough BAME – er, what ? for years now most of the sports /entertainment /science / outside reporting has seen a plethora of black or Asian faces on screen – the ratio of which far outweighs their numbers in reality. However, this is only ‘now’ – with reports that the birthrate is up for foreign born women in this country, then from two generations we’ll be a spent force. Glad I wont be around to witness it.

            “Glad I wont be around to witness it.”

            Please forgive me if I’m wrong but, like a few people here, myself included, I’m inferring that you won’t see 21 again. If I’m right, do you find yourself caring less and less what people think? I don’t mean being gratuitously rude, although there are times when I feel like making an exception, but just being a little less sensitive about the feelings of people who insist on saying things which are hypocritical or just downright silly?

            I’ve always remembered a bit of advice my wife was given years ago when she did some temporary teaching in a language school for foreign students (fee paying, not immigrants). After a bad day with a particularly awful class of Italian teenagers who would rather have been somewhere else, the DOS (Director of Studies) said that she could either end the day being upset, or end the day with the students being upset. Which would she prefer? She never let it happen again.

            I put this into practice a couple of months ago after a family friend was particularly rude about Brexit voters and English people. I didn’t enjoy doing it but at least the other party ended up feeling worse than I did.

            There are quite a few people in the BBC I dream about having a go at.

              Yes, I do feel I couldn’t give a monkeys anymore whether people agree with my views or not. I wasn’t brought up to be ill mannered, and still say pardon or sorry at the drop of a hat ! BUT like a friend of mine (I may have told this before) who, when asked if she wants to see the photographs of the grandchildren of some acquaintance or stranger, blatantly says ‘no’ !! following it up with, “they are very precious to you, but mean nothing to me”, and so is relieved of unnecessary pressure to oooooh and aaaahhhh over babies and toddlers who really all look the same.
              I’m never rude, but have become more forthright in my comments as I’ve aged, and anyway I want to get everything out and said, in case I get to the stage where I forget and there’s no fun in that !

      I won’t watch a programme in they are involved. The sense of superiority they show is offensive – every one is entitled to legally reduced the tax they pay but when much of their work involves morality it’s a bit different .
