    The other night we were watching a program about Monty Python and the lumberjack song came on, and I mentioned to Mrs Pounce how times have changed, in that dressing up in women’s clothing is deemed….natural. How wearing fancy dress is no longer acceptable, and how those who so called political elites who demanded equality: Women, Nonwhites, Gays protestgroups have themselves become the most intolerant people going and the champion for all this is… The bBC

      There is a great episode in season 6 of South Park where the children are sent to a Nazi-style boot camp of tolerance for questioning their teacher’s extreme sexual perversions. It is spot on. Tolerance is not the same as adulation which is what is demanded of us.

    Here’s a story of a two terrorism incidents which haven’t even been reported by the BBC:

    http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/explosion-salford-caused-device-packed-13628768

    The Political Correctness Enforcement Squad formerly known as ‘The Police’ originally thought the two explosions were caused by ‘industrial fireworks’ what ever they are, but it now transpires that these were bombs were packed with nuts bolts and nails. Salford is a predominantly white area even if much of it is populated by violent scum who would attack you as soon as look at you. This is hardly likely to by the work of a ‘right wing extremist gang’, or a turf war between drug gangs especially given where the arrests were made.

    If it does turn out to be another group of Muslims then this new MO is extremely frightening. Driving into a white area, planting a bomb on a suburban street and then detonating it and leaving the scene. Of course it could just be them practicing for a larger and more high profile attack in which the targets will be human beings.

    “At about 7pm on Thursday officers saw a Lexus car on Stockport Road, which was thought to be stolen and linked to the explosions.

    Officers followed the Lexus for a short time before it stopped and reversed, ramming the police car near to Regent Road in Salford.

    The occupants of the car abandoned the vehicle and attempted to escape on foot but officers soon caught up with them and detained them.

    The men, aged 20, 24, 24, and 29, have since been bailed pending further enquiries.”

    Reality Check verdict: We are not giving £20bn a year or £350m a week to Brussels – Britain pays £276m a week to the EU budget because of the rebate.

    – BBC fail to mention their own fact checking service which came up with £276m per week (-74m)? So they don’t believe or trust it on the news {biasedbbc} or on the website were you can find it?

    Having been on a short sabbatical and minimising routine exposure to main stream media – particularly news – I have been trying to figure out what – really – is going on. I wondered what the demographic of this website is. Although having no evidence I deduced that many will be over 40 and therefore can recall when coverage of events was different – sort of fairer. But things are more polarised now – back then we were generally anti the reds and everything was configured around the Cold War.

    The point I am making is that a good few of those running things – such as al Beeb – do not know what this country was like . Coupled with industrial quantities of information they are different to us.perhaps sons and daughters- and politicians have no choice but to accept this too.

    This sounds a bit defeatist on my part but I try to be a realist and objective if possible – relying on fact and evidence – specific or general. For instance – Brexit – many here are pro and albeeb is taken as anti. But I don’t think it s just that simple. I think they are really scared of it because it was a vote outside their understanding and experience. Those remainers with vested interests and earned a living from it would always fight it . But those scared are frightened that their reading of our country might not be what they thought it was.

    On Parsons Green. I carefully watched al Beeb rabid coverage and I think this will turn out to be non Islamic terrorism . You can guess how al Beeb s rabies will go over board if this is the case. And as I write at noon Saturday al Beeb is announcing an 18 old arrested at Dover . We’ll see.

      I agree up to a point. The younger people have been educated in a system that is heavily biased in favour of the liberal left and have been subjected to non stop propaganda from the BBC for all of their lives. So they tend to agree with the liberal left one world philosophy, which is naive to say the least. By any objective criteria the problems that the whole of the West has with Islam shows that we simply are not ‘ one world’ no matter how much the left want us to be. In fact they want it to be so so much that they bury their heads in the sand and pretend that Islam is not in a struggle for domination with the West. They are leading their respective countries to hell.

              Fedup, sorry for the late reply to this, but I wanted to say please don’t give up on the younger generations.

              As someone who has children and works with younger people, I can assure you they’re not all brainwashed by any means, although you’re right about the relentless pressure at school, college and Yuni. I experienced it myself (not being much over 40), getting noticeably worse as my education progressed and older educators left the profession, however I was also reared by my parents to think for myself, and a lot of younger people are quite capable of doing the same, or learn to as they get a little older and wiser.

              What goes around, comes around, and there are indications that among the more intelligent (not necessarily academic) youngsters there is a strong counter current who resent the monopoly of the ‘liberal’ left. It’s not surprising really, youth will always rebel, and the ‘great causes’ of the last generation (progressive liberalism) are now looking dated and attached to an older generation, which is never ‘cool’ with the more self confident and forward thinking youth.

              If we take the BBC, for example, despite every (pathetic and often ill-conceived) effort to the contrary, it is seen as catering to the middle aged and middle class (as I think it always has), and to the most popular values among that group (ie ‘progressive liberalism’). Also, never forget, despite the never-ending scaremongering, the ‘knowing no different’, and unrelenting pressure to conform, a third of 18-25 year olds did vote Brexit… I like to consider them the ‘forgotten third’ of our youth, and if they were mostly not studying at Yuni, perhaps that’s because they could see modern higher education for the money making con it really is (from someone who works in academe and hates what it has become).

To be able to think for oneself in the face of the onslaught of correctness faced by people is an achievement. I had forgotten about the number of younger people who voted for Brexit.

                Perhaps on the “up” side the quality of non al Beeb c4 itv TV such as Netflix and others seemed to be breaking the oppressive monopoly. I don’t pay for TV at all now so I don’t know how good they are. I’m happy buying DVD box sets on the cheap- west wing , wire ,Supranos – great stuff. No licence for me. ,

        Fed up,
        If he isn’t called Mo or similar then I am unconvinced he is the perpetrator or if he is that it isn’t a false flag operation. If the authorities claim it is a far right attack I am highly sceptical. It would be another excuse to turn the heat up on censorship of the internet and stop people from knowing what is going on. I put nothing past this Tory government and I know that Labour would be even worse, much worse. The senior ranks of the police long since forfeited my trust in anything they say with reference to terrorism. Phobias are irrational, fear of Islam is not irrational, in fact NOT fearing Islam if you are not a Muslim is irrational and there are hundreds , perhaps thousands of examples world wide to prove this. Are there similar examples of other religions inflicting mass murders on non believers in the past ten or twenty years? No of course not . People who fear Islam have good grounds for doing so.

          They are certainly not trivial but life changing illnesses, and based on the way the Fascist left use them to insult other people whose views they disagree with it is in diametric opposition to the way they treat every other mental health condition.

      Meaningless platitude. In 1940, to say ‘London will never be defeated’ would mean the alternative was either London would be completely destroyed or the UK would surrender to Germany. In 2017, how exactly would this ‘defeat’ manifest itself? If anything, we are already defeated, because the government shows no sign of even admitting what the problem might be, let alone trying to deal with it. Khan uses these platitudes because it taps into a (rapidly disappearing) race-memory of the Blitz, and allows him to sound grandiose while doing precisely nothing.

    Fate of St Denis.

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

    The Basilica of Saint Denis (Basilique Saint-Denis) is an important Catholic basilica located in Saint Denis, a northern suburb of Paris.

    Saint-Denis is notable for its Gothic architecture and for being the burial site of French monarchs, which makes it comparable to Westminster Abbey in England.

    The building is of unique importance historically and architecturally as its choir, completed in 1144, shows the first use of all of the elements of Gothic architecture.

    St Denis is now a Muslim zone.

      John,
      I think that you have nailed it. The government, BBC, Labour, Lib Dems, police ( at least the higher ranks) judiciary and the rest of the liberal elite all take the view that you Outline above . They are prepared to accept many hundreds , perhaps a few thousand, dead and many thousand injured , spread out of course over a number of years, and want the rest of us to do the same. Of course most of the elite will never be exposed to the danger they expect the rest of us to bear with quiet fortitude whils holding hands and singing in candle light.
      What astonishes me is where do they expect this policy of abandoning the British people to end? It seems that Islam is unlikely to be tamed or to adopt British values. So the longer these pathetics liberal leftists appease it the stronger it will grow until eventually it takes over. So either they are incredibly stupid , which is unlikely , or they have done a calculation that shows that Islam is bound to triumph in the end and their job is to keep us quiet for as long as possible. A bit like those Jews who ran the ghettos for the Nazis whilst knowing the terrible fate which awaited those that they were in charge of but chose never to tell them.

      Brissles, I suspect Media Studies degrees have taken over from ‘journalist school’. ‘Name five TV soaps since 1974’ was a question in a final exam, I’ve been told. It’s great to know that an expensive three-year course qualifies you to win all pub quizzes and Trivial Pursuit games, isn’t it?

      I took a short course in journalism course forty years ago. A merciless tutor hurled our work back to be rewritten if we’d so much as missed a comma, let alone produced the cliches, euphemisms, slang, political bias and inaccuracy we see today. Mind you, I am getting a feel for the true meanings of journalistic language. For example:

      ‘A community devasted and in shock’ = ‘Some are a bit pissed off and inconvenienced round here.’
      ‘A divisive figure’ = ‘We in the newsroom think he’s a fascist pig.’
      ‘A huge left-wing demonstration went off peacefully’ = ‘We cropped the photo, so you didn’t see there were 350 people, and half of them had machetes and black masks.’

      Well, I’m sure you all have your favourites!

      We can expect a full campaign of dissembling and disinformation from the BBC over the coming days as it becomes increasingly clear that the bomber was a ‘juvenile’ refugee. In other words, precisely what ISIS promised us and what Nigel Farage, among others, warned about. Already the BBC is restricting information relating to the attack.

      We can also expect yet more fake outrage as it becomes clear that Pres Trump was quite right when he tweeted that the perpetrator was on the police’s radar – this much seems certain judging from a neighbour’s comments reported by the Sun. Had the UK been warned about this individual by the NSA?

      Let’s hope Trump reveals all because we can be certain that Amber Rudd and the BBC won’t if they can possibly avoid it. Once again the British establishment conspires against Britons.

      I came across this essay written in 1979, by someone who had been a fervent socialist and then, after a spell seeing it close up in Moscow, realised the inevitable disaster it produces. The sentiments still hold today:

      I laugh at it all now, but at the time you can imagine what a shock it was to someone like myself, who had been brought up to regard liberal intellectuals as the samurai, the absolute elite, of the human race, to find that they could be taken in by deceptions which a half-witted boy would see through in an instant. I never got over that; it always remained in my mind as something that could never be erased. I could never henceforth regard the intelligentsia as other than credulous fools who nonetheless became the media's prophetic voices, their heirs and successors remaining so still.

      The author was Malcolm Muggeridge, and the full essay, titled The Great Liberal Death Wish, and well worth reading, is online at http://www.orthodoxytoday.org/articles/MuggeridgeLiberal.php

    You remember how Basil Fawlty when caught in some embarrassing mistake or misdemeanour would desperately attempt to conjour a distraction with the sudden cry “Oh my God, look over there!”

    On the verge of the likely revelation of a recent so-called refugee who has turned out to be a murderous terrorist the liberal elite of Police Politicians and National Broadcasters are indeed now doing the full Basil Fawlty act.

    The Newspaper Review is a dodgy moment where unapproved thoughts might be expressed on the BBC. No matter, BBC Breakfast welcomes in left-leaning BBC house poet and professional northerner Ian McMillan to reliably cover the train bombing, arrest of the 18-year-old and police swoop on the refugee house – but to use his supposed literary wit to distract us. The ‘banality’ of this terrorist act is our Ian’s theme.

    By the way, the dictionary meaning of banal : ‘so lacking in originality as to be obvious and boring’

    Reminds one of our London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s quip about terrorism being just something to put up with, the inevitable consequence of living in a big city.

    Our liberal licence-funded laureate is soon moving on to happier themes about Boris Johnson and telling us how he likes to visualise Tory Party splits as arguments between different pieces of a household cruet set. Oh how the BBC presenters happily laughed along with him. Like Spurs supporters lauding Harry Kane “He’s one of our own”. No mention of Labour Party splits from our Ian.

    BBC Front Page news reports that a foster couples home has been searched by armed police in Surrey in connection with the Parsons Green bombing.
    On the same page are the newspaper reviews – most of the front pages declare in bold letters that the couples house who was searched fostered…’REFUGEES’.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-the-papers-41296748
    it is reported that the man arrested at Dover was 21.
    The BBC are not asking the questions that the newspapers are, such as
    1. Was the man arrested in connection with the bombing a ‘refugee’
    I accept that we don’t know many facts yet but the questions are fair considering the situation the UK finds itself in. The BBC often offers speculations about all manner of subjects but as usual is turning a blind eye to stories like this.
    If the ‘bombing’ had nothing to do with Muslims or Islam a couple of more questions are begged.
    Is the suspect a Muslim?
    If this bombing had nothing to do with Islam, then why does Islamic State claim that it was one of their terror cells carried out Parsons Green tube bombing?

    Poetic justice rarely comes to visit but when it does, it does with impact.
    The couple who took in the 18 year old child migrant (no doubt) both received an MBE for their services to children. Apparently, they have fostered “hundreds” of children but only recently turned to child migrants and refugees. Fact is, they took an active role in rearing the most recent terrorist we know about. Do I hear calls to “strip” them of their MBE’s? No don’t be daft, any do-gooder who supports a muslim terrorist is automatically given a ‘get-out-of-jail-free’ card. They were probably filmed at some stage within a group of others waving a placard: “We Want More Refugees”. Conversely, the 18 year old muslim now under arrest no doubt used the fosterers by exercising the other thing they are good at: lying i.e. takiyya. These are parasites who use the good will of the, essentially de facto, Christian people of this country to further the insatiable desire enshrined in the Quaran, to kill or maim others that dont follow their twisted cult.
    Perhaps the couple will now think twice before taking in a child migrant, but I doubt it as they are normally equally as blind as the terrorist is.

    I suppose its the bandwagon effect. Many other worthy causes exist but don’t get the left wing kudos of being able to attack the government along the way.

    PS According to the bBBC report 86 families have agreed to go to the concert arranged for their benefit. Which means a sizeable proportion have not. Yep, they are not attending a free concert arranged for their very own benefit. Perhaps the invitation was not in the correct languages. Or maybe they are at work tonight.

        I don’t wish to take anything away from the plight of the G/Residents, but I remember an age (not that long ago) when victims of tragedies had to ‘just to get on with it’. Its called ‘life’. There were no fund raising events or concerts for the parents of Aberfan, the families of Lockerbie, or the many coal mining tragedies where miners were trapped and killed after a pit cave-in. My Dad and both grandfathers suffered injury and life-long breathing problems after a lifetime of underground working, and remember the stories of them pulling dead colleagues out of collapsed mine shafts. No therapy for them, or raised funds for their families.

        Yeah, I know, its a different time now, and ironically am just listening where kids at school are to be given lessons on how to cope with trauma when they deal with life after school.

    We are supposed to be a democracy but we have learned more from a foreign government via one tweet than we got out of our government about the Parsons Green bomber. The persistent reluctance to release information on spurious national security grounds is an insult to us. As are the usual attempts to placate us by referring to cobra meetings etc. The MSM just play along with this macabre game. Surely all this cannot wash for much longer. This isn’t terrorism that we grew up with such as Palestinian or Irish. The Muslim attack on us is entirely different, in many crucial ways. The major difference is that the millions of Muslims in our country makes it impossible to eradicate or combat Muslim violence via policing and intelligence methods. The violence is spinning out of control . Sooner or later the government needs to come clean and stop the platitudes.
    Moreover we must stop making things worse by not referring to the words Muslim and Islam in relation to this violence. We must also stop aggravating the problem by letting in more Muslims . The so called ‘child’ refugees whom Cameron finally let in against his better judgement are a case in point. Sooner or later one was bound to attack us.

Spoke to a German chap on Friday and he said public opinion is swaying with more and more speaking out. Interesting to see what the upcoming election brings.

        Thanks . Sometimes I can’t believe that the media react to Muslim violence so formulaically and that we don’t seem to produce a single politician of substance to say career be damned and to lead the resistance . In the 1930s, they had Churchill. We have no-one.

    Did anyone see the camouflage, dissembling and downright deceit on the Marr show? Our latest terrorist “incident” was placed safely on the back burner. The chattering classes are much more animated about what Boris wrote and what Trump tweeted.
    Slimy John Sopel slithered onto the sofa and sat there like a self satisfied slug, oozing anti Trump vitriol.
    At least, and at last, it has been confirmed that the “Bucket Bomber” was a refugee. I’d love to see one or two of those “gimps” who stand there with “REFUGEES WELCOME!” placards interviewed. But no…
    And then we had Amber Rudd, our Home Secretary; clearly brought in to give Boris a slap and ticked off by Marr for trying to keep another raghead out of our country. She sat there, as stiff as starch, like a rather tetchy librarian, who was a tad miffed that my Agatha Christie was overdue.
    Our daughters are raped. We’ve had kids blown to smithereens while enjoying a pop concert. Policemen and tourists murdered. And can you honestly say you feel safe when you get on a train / bus / tube these days?
    If you’re not a Londoner you’d be amazed at what most of our bridges resemble these days. Great chunks of concrete strategically placed to dissuade ROPers from a bit of pedestrian culling.
    There’s a lovely Regency street, just off St James’s Park, with a beautiful wrought iron gate, now smothered in hideous blocks.
    I don’t think anyone could deny that our ghastly politicians have brought us the “rivers of blood” so eloquently prophesised back in the 1960s. “We must be mad, stark raving mad.”
    I believe the chap that said this was at one time a leading politician.

    Now, what was his name?

      If you consider the EU as an invasive force which we pay to destroy us, and compare it to paying jihadist welfare payments to destroy us or letting Saudi’s finance our country to destroy us.

      It would seem we’ve mixed trade with ideology to our own detriment.

      The BBC’s attacks on our greatest ally’s president, led by John (another beauty) Sopel, are relentless. If Trump discovered a cure for diabetes, the BBC headline would be ‘Trump FAILS to Find Altzheimer’s Cure’

      I watched Marr and said to my Mrs, “the BBC are using Trump and Boris as scapegoats and distractions from the latest Islam terrorist incident”.

    Now we’re treated to the usual platitudes, that we won’t give in to fear, hate, or be divided, and that we’ll carry on as normal.

    But perhaps a bit of fear and hate of our enemies might be just what we need. And we should NOT carry on as normal. Normal is what got us into this mess.
