    The BBC has had a nasty shock. Their poster boy Tony Blair, with Andrew Adonis trotting at his heels, has received a mass and massive rejection. (Put the champagne bottles back back in the ‘frige’, JN Garvey. < Ulster pronounciation)

    The BBC have had to ease down on their anti-Brexit, remain in the EU, propaganda. So instead they wheel out Judi Dench to emote over her anxiety that "we are leaving Europe". No, Dame Judi, we are leaving the EU. We are leaving an institution to join the whole, wide world.

        Grant ,
        There is a problem here. We want to govern ourselves with our own courts . But we don’t want a flood of migrants from the Rest of the World lake of the lead Remain politicians seem to. If Merkel hadn’t thrown open the door and The EU had done a reasonable of defending the the borders then I might have considered voting Remain as the lesser of two evils. But she did what she did and made my mind up for me.

          There is a problem here,
          This problem is that many persuasive contributors to BBBC, insist on mis-describing organisms that we do not require in the UK. Organisms who hate us, in many cases have always hated us.
          Whose arrival is welcomed by traitors who also hate us, traitors who support an alien philosophy which killed one hundred million people. Who plan on continuing to kill people until everyone left alive votes Labour/Commie.
          Traitors who have imported millions of aliens to vote for them, because the patriots will not.
          Stop calling these alien invaders MIGRANTS, start calling them INVADERS.
          Whose contribution to the UK is negative.
          Stop using AlBeeb terminology, which side are you on?

            Truth seeker,
            I think the BBC still use the term refugee quite often. I didn’t think that migrant was an exclusive liberal left or BBC term. If it is then you are quite right to tick me off for using it. I do sometimes use the term invaders because it does feel as though our continent is being invaded, especially when you see them storming ashore like D day. But I doubt that the migrant invaders are a cohesive force hell bent on invasion. They just see an easy opportunity and are taking it.
            That opportunity is provided by the liberal left who are the true enemy of European civilisation. Unfortunately they form the establishment elite right across the West and hold all of the levers of power. They are able to use the power of the MSM and judiciary and police to enforce their will and to persuade millions of ordinary folks to act against their own best interests which pretty much gives them control over the democratic process. The election of President Trump and Brexit are two rare examples of the elite losing control hence their concerted efforts to remove the President and reverse Brexit by mobilising the most gullible in our society, the young. They also are increasingly using their power to suppress any opposition to migration/ invasion and to suppress the indigenous peoples of Europe in favour of the imported minorities.
            So the problem for those who oppose the mass migration policy is how to overthrow the elite because until that happens the migration or invasion will continue . To do so democratically requires getting voters to see where their own best interests lie but doing so up against the liberal left propaganda of the MSM is tough and in my view very little progress has been made in the UK , in fact we have gone backwards since the referendum. Perhaps the best hope lies in Eastern Europe or at the next French election as Macron is failing already and may leave the door open for Le Pen next time round. I hope that am unduly pessimistic and that events cause a rapid awakening of the people of Europe as to where their true interests lie.

    So the bBC still continues to promote the view that the British Virgin Isles have received no aid from the UK
    Hurricane Irma wreaks havoc in British Virgin Islands
    According to the bBC, people are starving due to a lack of food and water. and here is how the local media reports the story:
    Commercial Flights Could Start This Week—Vanterpool
    The Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport at Beef Island is likely to start accommodating commercial flights as early as Monday, September 10. Hon. Mark Vanterpool, Minister of Communications and Works, told BVI Platinum News that they will also be allowing private planes to land at the Beef Island…
    Meanwhile, the Works Minister who is also the owner of One Mart Supermarket said that there are lots of food and water on the island available for residents. He mentioned the other two major supermarkets–RiteWay and Bobby’s. “We don’t have food problem. I also had food shipped in just before the storm, left on a boat and they are arriving here on Crowley Shipping and Tropical is out there with more food for us. We are organizing that, and that will be okay; we have lots of food, water,” he related. He also spoke about other supplies on its way. “Also lots of barges coming in with lots of supplies, batteries, generators; some are coming from Trinidad, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and Miami once Hurricane Irma passed and we are settled…Yes those are to be sold,” Hon. Vanterpool stated. He said that government is patnerning with others with the relief efforts. “The government is also bringing supplies to give out from different donations so they are going to organize that. It’s going to be under control by some soldiers and distribution sites and they are going to announce that.” Minister Vanterpool added, “…Supplies are coming in at a faster pace than we can even handle. So people shouldn’t even worry about supplies.”

    Beef Island is linked to Tortola by a bridge

    It appears the bBC, doesn’t like reporting the truth.

      Pounce, Bojo let slip on the TODYA for Programme that the UK sends a naval vessel to the Carib every year in advance of the hurricane season. No acknowledgement from the Humph, no further questions on that subject, he just continued to push the standard lame narrative “the Government hasn’t/isn’t/will not be doing enough”.

      Well, John, if you were prepared to pay tax at 75% on your BBC income above £150,000, and all your colleagues likewise, I am sure the Government could do a whole lot more for everyone.

      However, I bet that if the Chancellor came on R4 with a proposal to do just that, Humph, you and many others at the BBC will be quick to rush to a mic to say “We know that charging higher taxes doesn’t work.” and “You charge more and you get less coming in.”.

        Really winds me up. I did a six month tour of Belize a few years back and I saw at first hand how the Brits prepare for the hurricane and rainy season. (Put it this way, not a good idea to fall in one of the culverts when drunk). The locals sick of the yearly flooding and such moved the capital from Belize city 70Kms inland to Belmopan, so damage mitigation can be done. Granted the Islands are a lot smaller. But whats to stop them building bunkers. I mean Cuba did.

      The bBC is currently airing this:

      5 seconds on the GOV UK Foreign travel advice website for St Maarten reveals:
      The British Vice Consul in Willemstad, Curacao is responsible for the delivery of consular assistance to British nationals in the Dutch part of the island (St Maarten). The British Embassy in Paris is responsible for the delivery of consular assistance to British nationals in the French part of the island (St Martin).

      The hurricane season in the Caribbean normally runs from June to November. Hurricane Jose is forecast to bring hazardous sea and weather conditions to north-eastern parts of the Caribbean from around 9 September 2017. You should monitor updates from the US National Hurricane Centre and follow the instructions of the local authorities, including any evacuation orders.

      Why is it people who can’t be f-ing bothered to do their homework are everybody elses problem. I mean so many people with no water. Why didn’t they fill up a jerry can or two before hand, or buy a load of water in? Same with food. Its now 6 days since Irma passed by, are we saying nobody decided to stock up?

        We’ve just been through a hurricane in the US. Fortunately in a high ground area, so no flooding and not much wind really either. But seeing devastating local effects. The preparation was quite clearly stated – ignore at your peril. If you don’t speak English/Spanish, then you might be at a disadvantage – another reason to learn the language if you immigrate. These are hurricane prone areas, so there is no excuse for not preparing/evacuating if advised to do so, and everyone that buys property or holidays in these areas knows the risk. This is just another reason for the BBC to make (fake) news, whinge about governments etc.

        Nobody (reasonably healthy and well fed to start with) starves to death in 6 days, it takes weeks, if not months, to starve to death. Clean drinking water is more of an issue, I grant you, but anyone with a grain of common sense would get some plastic jerry cans and fill them with clean water, and stock up on tinned food, all located in a safe place BEFORE the event – it’s not as if they didn’t have warning enough.

        I do feel sorry for those who’ve lost: homes, businesses, and especially friends and family, but hurricanes are part and parcel of living in that part of the world and those who live there, or visit as tourists, must be aware of that surely?

        Having said that I’d much rather my taxes went towards helping people in the path of these hurricanes rebuild their lives than in encouraging further uncontrolled immigration to the UK.

          Steady on – we all know that as good citizens we should sit back and wait for ‘the guvvamant’ to do everything for us. Stocking up on food and water and relying on your own initiative sounds like dangerous right wing extremism to me! If people get ideas like that into their head they might start reading books or going to the local pub to meet other extremists, instead of stopping at home watching the BBC.

      One new problem to overcome is no matter where anyone goes to ‘escape’, via their own efforts and funded themselves, to live and work with likeminded others in harmony, there will be a bunch left behind (perhaps with good reason) who will decide that having trashed their ‘hood this new place is where they deserve to be too.

      But, sadly, there will also be a bunch of weasels somehow allowed along with the first for the ride who will sulk, petition, protest and otherwise act like arses until they can screw things up for everyone by insisting the melting pot has enough floaters for them to feel virtuous.

      This is why the ‘BBC Ark’ is perhaps the best concept I ever read about.

      As I’ve discovered by looking into the facts, one person’s ‘ethnic cleansing’ is another’s ‘resisting an armed Islamic jihad’. The situation is nowhere near as clear-cut as the hateful BBC is attempting to portray it.

      FACT: There is an active Islamic insurgency in Rakhine state, Myanmar – a terrorist threat Myanmar government forces are attempting to eradicate. The stated aim of the insurgents is to establish an Islamic state within Rakhine. I won’t pretend this doesn’t lead to dreadful actions on the part of those resisting the terrorists – most likely illegal actions – but the BBC can’t even present the facts with even a degree of honesty or accuracy.

    Is the BBC an object lesson in why socialism is a bad thing?

    It is criminally inefficient as nobody cares when they are spending someone else’s money – hence the upcoming wank fest of disabled people touring Vietnam.

    It is controlled by an out of touch elite with whom the vast majority of people disagree, who do not live by the rules they enforce. Just like the pigs in Animal Farm forbidding other animals from befriending humans whilst they themselves fraternise with humans,
    the Beeb tell us immigration is fantastic whilst themselves living in white ghettos. Why is BBC Bristol in Clifton and not StPauls if other cultures are so fantastic?

    It is enforced through an iron fist. If you do not pay, you go to prison. For all their talk of ‘inclusion’ that is incredibly harsh.

    If payment for the service were optional, they would be forced to pull their socks up. No more free holidays, sneering reporters or made up news as nobody would fund that. They would be forced to improve their service, and as the market is competitive they could probably do it for a third of the money. And we would not have the poor and vulnerable, whom the Beeb purport to support, being oppressed by Capita chasing ‘licence fee’ dodgers. Perhaps we could have deferred prosecution for those who don’t pay – call them ‘dreamers.’

      They just serve up PC rubbish and fake news which runs against the opinion of the majority of British people. I did a straw poll the other day with 30 friends and only ‘TWO’ of them said that the BBC represented a fair and balanced output!! I don’t think that they realise how much they are despised (not that they care which is the crux of the matter in my opinion).

      Quite frankly, they are traitors to the UK and when it comes around (and it will), they should be judged accordingly.

      I’d say it’s more of an object lesson in what happens when all the bad things socialism does go unremarked, often revised and almost always ignored.

      As for the choice of Vietnam – well, besides being a damn good jolly on the licence payer’s money it also happens to be one of the world’s few remaining working Communist states*. I’m sure the North London luvvies making this joke of series are more than happy to spend a few months in the doubtless ‘revolutionary’ company of their comrades in the great struggle.

    There was a remarkable interview on Toady this morning between Sa-rah-rah Montagu and a Christian couple who no longer wanted their child to attend a C of E primary school where a “transgender” child was turning up to school on different days dressed as either a boy or a girl.

    If ever an interview exhibited the chasm in beliefs between the cultural Marxists of entities such as al Beebus and ordinary folk, then this was it. Montage sounded as though she felt she was talking to reanimations of Oliver Cromwell and his wife.

    I chuckled to myself when she asked them some such as: “Was it just the clothes that bothered you?”
    As though it’s perfectly normal for a young child to be sent to school dressed as a boy on one day and then as a girl the next and to object to such a thing was simply preposterous.

    Stick a fork in it, I think this country’s done.

        Cranmer, I am awaiting the first case where a boy “identifies” as a girl and his parents demand that he be admitted as a pupil to a school for girls; or a girl does the same and make a similar demand for a place at a boys school.

        The whole thing is completely insane, yet anybody who attempts to point that out is prevented from so doing by a combination of “hate speech” legislation and the total lack of any significant media platform given for someone to offer the alternate view; the view which so happens to be that of the vast majority of the population.

          On the one hand, we are expected to believe that parents selecting boys clothing for their boys and girls toys for their girls imposes gender roles on them and, then, on the other hand, we are also expected to believe that, say, a boy who has barely learned to speak spontaneously expresses a desire to wear a dress to express his feminine nature. If girls only like pink dresses because of conditioning and not due to an inborn propensity , you cannot then argue that a six-year old boy is expressing his “true” gender by wearing a dress or playing with girls’ toys. Boys who spontaneously play with cars rather than dolls have been brainwashed in some way and must be reconditioned, yet a boy who wants to wear a dress is following some inherent or genetically determined impulse. If this is a real phenomenon, where is the evidence, say, from studies of monozygotic twins raised apart?

            ID there is no scientific (I mean real scientific, not the pet pseudo-academic, pseudo-scientists the BBC always seems to manage to dredge up from some third rate ex-Poly) evidence that refutes the view that the vast majority of girls actually want to be girls, and ‘boys will be boys’, regardless.

            We are only talking about a tiny, tiny minority who actually have ‘gender dimorphism’, or whatever the current trendy term is, and let’s be completely honest most of those who do have other, far more serious, mental problems that really need tackling first.

            When my son was 6 if we’d sent him to school in a dress I’m quite sure we would have had a visit from social services, that’s only 5/6 years ago now – this transgender thing is just a trendy fad, propagated by the likes of the BBC because everyone is tired of being ‘outraged’ by ‘homophobia’, ‘gender bias’, ‘islamaphobia’, etc… they just needed to invent something new to moan about.

            I do feel really sorry for these very ‘ordinary’ seeming parents, perhaps that’s their ‘problem’, they’re too damn ordinary and reasonable, and clearly aren’t ‘progressive’ enough, clearly need sending to a gulag for re-education.

      Yet she was 14 and the statutory limit for consent is 16,

    Michael Blastland is on the case: ‘The Difference A Day Makes: Whodunnit?, The Calendar Conspiracy’ BBC R4 Mon-Fri @1.45pm.

    Those wicked BBC engineers, no doubt enraged at how much money the BBC give Michael Blastland and Gary Lineker and Graham Norton and Chris Evans, are sabotaging the sleuth during his investigations and either jiggling around with the sliders on the mixing desk or making Michael set and adjust his own levels, dashing to and from the mic position. I found the first half of today’s episode very difficult to hear. Maybe it’s all down to Irma?

    Then, I was left wondering whether he was stoned or drunk or both. Very strange, plunging from normal levels to ‘sotto voce’ and then back again.

    He started out on a dodgy premise, too, forgetting that June is in summer as well as July and August. He was certainly rather weak on supporting evidence, citing just one case and that of a BBC Producer (from Sweden of all places) and her son. And ‘the problem’, if it is indeed one at all, has been known about since I was at school if not long before.

    Think I’ll give episodes 2-5 a miss.

    One of today’s top headlines on BBC is them shaming Christian parents who have removed their child from a school because another kid was transexual. The parents said the transexual was confusing their own child because he was dressing up like a girl and using a girl’s name.

    So instead of focusing on the parents of the transexual, and asking why a 6 year old child is declaring themselves a transexual, they’re attacking the parents who removed their child from such influences. This being the BBC who only recently aired a “documentary” which showed 7-year-old exclusively white children being mentally abused for six weeks into believing they didn’t have a sex.

    Pay attention to the fact this was a Victoria Derbyhire story… this woman is basically a militant feminist and the BBC hold her in very high regard.

Khadijah was probably a bit past it by then, so why not replace her with a six year old?

    Toronto Film Festival: George Clooney ‘felt sick’ shooting Suburbicon

    George Clooney has said he “felt sick” while directing some scenes in his new movie Suburbicon. The film’s plot sees a black family move into a predominantly white suburban community in the 1950s. Referring to the way the family is treated in the film, the director said: “These are things that happened – [neighbours] sang church hymns, they hung confederate flags over the fence, they built a fence around their house, these are things that really happened. But it was sickening to be part of it quite honestly, so that was one of the most difficult things to shoot.” The movie, which is currently showing as part of the Toronto Film Festival, was conceived during the run up to the US election of November 2016, which was won by Donald Trump.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-41221390

    I hope Mr ‘Virtue Signal’ Clooney remembers that in the US, in the 50s, the single biggest supporters of racism against black Americans were the Democrats (Prop. KKK) who did all they could to frustrate repeated Republican attempts to desegregate and normalise race relations in the States. Somehow, I doubt those inconvenient facts will find their way into this fairytale.

    The BBC have actually been caught peddling fake news in a court judgement last week. The story contains all the inevitable factors Brexit, racism, and murder by some chav.

    All of these were proved to be lies.

    https://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/david-keighleys-bbc-watch-bbc-bias-turns-street-scuffle-anti-brexit-cause-celebre/

    You probably remember the story of the Polish man allegedly murdered by a gang of racist thugs encouraged by Brexit, eventually escalating to the Polish ambassador being involved.

    The reality was very different, it was not a murder, but a manslaughter, the racism came from the drunken Police man & his mates and it was only after they assaulted one of the youths that they retaliated with a single punch, but even that was not fatal, it was the landing on the pavement and banging his head.

    The BBC claims that it will not blame Islamic terrorists until the facts are known, and yet it does not extend that same caution when it believes the perpetrators are white. Most people would regard that as that meaningless word ‘racism’, although the BBC don’t accept you can be racist against white people so they are fair game for every insult and slur going.

    More subtlety from the BBC:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-trending-41224792
    Look how they manage to get a dig in at President Trump (PBUT) and Fox News. What a beauty.

    The BBC seems desperate to smear everyone else as fake news in order to try and deflect the spotlight which, annoyingly for them, keeps swinging their way. No mention in this article that not many fell for their constant hyping of this hurricane having been made worse by global warming. Since Irma had the audacity not to be the disaster that Harrabin, Little Matt McGrath et al had all crossed their fingers tightly in hope of, the global warming smoking gun seems to have been allowed to slip away quietly.

    There is an article in the Guardian where the MP for Newcastle performs intellectual gymnastics to somehow reframe the rape gang epidemic as an issue of ‘misogyny’ rather than one of race or religion.

    Like the worst tyrants, they will do anything to cling on to power. When white girls get raped by men with brown skin and nobody stops it, the whole ‘white privilege’ notion is clearly nonsense. Yet the intersectionists will sacrifice anything on the altar of cultural Marxism. The article is an absolute disgrace.

    Bear in mind the Guardian is the most read newspaper at the BBC.

    In the interest of impartiality, is there no one, no one in the outside internet world, that has some evidence of Right Wing Bias by the BBC?

    BBC Now – Beyond 100 Days … More of the same, rolling eyes and all the bad bits.

    “President is still pushing in Iraq and Afghanistan despite what he said.” – Christian Fraser (BBC)
    … silence … grimace in UK and USA ..
    “ummm, ….This is Beyond 100 Days … Hillary Clinton’s new book comes out tomorrow (What Happened?) So what does it tell us about her failed presidential bid and who she’s blaming. ” Katty Kay (BBC)

    … how can I stop promoting the BBC plugging Hillary’s Book without going to prison … they never bring up her husband did unspeakable things …

    I’m still waiting for the “Beyond 100 Days :: After the BBC Announced its Ludicrous Wages”

    Just like the BBC’s Beyond 100 DAYS programme, the humble BBC Tax Payers get answers from the BBC covering – high wages, gender gap, employees not following BBC guidelines on sharing their opinions online which break the BBC guidelines, money spent facilitating pedophiles, pensions drawn early, Gary Lineker confronts licence payers who have been prosecuted for not paying Gary’s wages, employees hiding money in external companies … and more. Possibly enough BBC mishaps for Beyond 1 Year!

    Comrades! Wonderful news! Your propaganda ministry is bring news of the heroic efforts of the Socialist comrades of the Labour party removing the treacherous John Clancy from control of Birmingham city council. This counter revolutionary was never a Labour comrade so we will not refer to him as such, throughout the entire article.

    Even the commissar for the secret police and security has denounced the traitor, and investigations are now underway to find other traitors who may have assisted him.

    He will be replaced most immediately by our comrade Ian Ward who has the party’s full confidence.

    Reading the various posts and links on this thread brought to mind Bizarro World, which some of you may remember from your Superman comic-reading days in the 1960s.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bizarro_World

    In popular culture “Bizarro World” has come to mean a situation or setting which is weirdly inverted or opposite to expectations.

    http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Htrae

    The Bizarros try to live their backwards lives as opposite of Earth as possible: a Bizarro salesman sold Bizarro bonds that were “guaranteed to lose money for you”, and the mayor of Mutropolis asks Bizarro to investigate a crime because he is “stupider than the entire Bizarro police force put together”, which Bizarro interpreted (correctly) as the greatest praise a Bizarro can receive on Htrae.

    The question is, how to escape?

    Note the image showing EU Flag being flown above the Union Jack. Not a patriotic act, and against all Flag Protocol.

    I do hope that Mr (Sir) Nigel Farage sees it? I think he already has one important axe to grind with the BBC?

    Meanwhile in Germany, everything is great, the economy is great, Merkel is great and the immigrants are great. Yes, it’s all great.
    Meanwhile, Poland is still after reparations for WW2 but Germany is just not wearing it.

    A Christian medic working for the Red Cross is murdered by her Muslim patient in Afghanistan.
    The BBC declares that the motive for the attack is unknown.

    Yet they also report “the aid worker’s murder is the latest attack on the Red Cross in northern Afghanistan, where Taliban and Islamic State militants have wreaked violence in recent years. Most of the group’s programmes in the north have been on hold since February, when six of its staff were ambushed and shot dead in Jowzjan province. … ”

    Breaking news on the BBC – Soldiers charged with terror offences. The terror offences being membership of National Action! The BBC will get plenty of mileage out of this as it will take the spotlight off the religion of peace.
    I have never heard of any members of the PIRA or the Real IRA or the UDA in the UK being arrested for membership of a terror organisation – perhaps because they have Blairs letter of protection from prosecution !
    Hopefully all those who have returned or in the process of returning from fighting with ISIL will be charged and banged up for up to 10 years
    Somehow I don’t think so….

    Just been in Germany for 4 days. The whole of the country seems to be one giant mess, litter and graffiti abound, never ever would you expect that of Germans. Beautiful medieval towns untouched during the war now covered in a sea of graffiti. It would appear that the social fabric of Germany is collapsing, and that my friends is really bad news.

    Radio 4 news headline story about Burma describes Aung San Suu Kyi as the former Nobel prize winner. Wishful thinking on the part of the former most trusted broadcaster in the world as it strips Aung San Suu Kyi of her award.
