    The UK is headed for trouble. It already has a two-tier legal system, which has allowed Muslim rape gangs to abuse “white girls” en masse with little attention; it has at least 85 operational sharia courts that are “operating beyond the reach of British law“; and now, it is virtually requesting that Islamic banking rescue Britain due to Brexit. {jihadwatch.org sep2017}

    Trump’s UN speech – nothing any sentient being could take exception to.
    No doubt the bbc has it’s best lexicographers, psychologists and fiction writers attempting to prove me wrong.

    “Ah but he didn’t mention this” or “He said that but thinks this” and “Whatever he says we’ll find something, anything – his tie, his wife’s shoes, anything because we are your bbc – free but not fair or impartial and we are dyed in the wool liars.”

    But the Rutherford case draws my attention to the rules on staff including their PERSONAL views within the programmes they are making (as regards ANY controversial topics).
    Despite them Rutherford always rushes to push the latest Green/solar gimmick in his prog
    ..and gushes over controversial figures like Michael Mann, feeding him free kicks against his political opponents.DKF9s60XoAE3L2W.jpg:large

    Comment: Just because he wouldn’t stop eating a woman he beheaded, doesn’t mean he’s a bad guy!! It’s just a misunderstanding. #CannibalLivesMatter

    Comment: WE JUST NEED TO GET HIM A JOB AND A FREE COLLEGE DEGREE! BUT THE MAIN PROBLEM HERE IS HOW WARM THE PLANET HAS BECOME.

    Comment: But…but…he wasn’t a fine young cannibal?

    Missed this with all the USA statue destruction … Russia warns Poland not to touch Soviet WW2 memorials {bbc.co.uk jul2017}

    The Russian government has warned Poland that it will face sanctions if it removes monuments glorifying the Soviet victory in World War Two. Last month Poland updated its “de-communisation” legislation, banning “totalitarian” symbols, which would include Soviet propaganda monuments. Now Russian foreign ministry officials have warned of “asymmetric measures” if Poland removes Soviet war monuments.

      I have seen the Russian memorials . Even when the USSR was collapsing they were well looked after. Red geraniums on each young man’s grave. So many in the last months of the war and it would be a terrible thing to touch them . Each cemetery had it’s memorial usually a sculpture and they are very much part of it. Leave well alone

    £6.5bn London Bridge redevelopment

    Despite the diggers shifting soil and the absence of trains sweeping overhead, it is easy to picture what the huge concourse at London Bridge station will look like when it opens in three years’ time.
    At peak times, more than 16,000 passengers an hour will travel down escalators from the platforms to this vast open area, the size of the pitch at Wembley, connecting to new destinations like Peterborough and Cambridge.
    Alongside the rows of shops will stand the original Victorian archways, with a walkway connecting the riverbank to the[QATARI OWNED] Shard and Borough Market.

    £6.5bn in redevelopment. But just one Muslim boy with a bucket is part and parcel of living in a big city.

    I have spent two hours on the Guardian site today.
    Hilarious, and encouraging.
    Cif gets more extreme, every day.
    The Guardianista comments become more implausible than the “opinion”. Which is difficult. Fewer too.

    Many comments from people like myself (except they are not banned, yet), just enjoying themselves, exposing the nonsense, poking the liars with a stick or waving a red flag at them. I expect they are getting bored, the Lefty writers and commenters stopped being a challenge years ago.

    More non-whites then ever amongst the opinion writers. They do not even attempt to hide their hatred of white people any more. Or our literature, science, architecture.
    They get the begging bowls out in a nanosecond though.
    No Japanese or Korean opinions though, I wonder why, no I don’t.
    More apologies from Polly & Co every day. They do wish they were not white. Perhaps suicide is indicated.

    Facts are no longer sacred.
    Move over Momentum, The runaway Guardian is heading for the buffers at top speed.
    “More people read the Guardian than ever . . .” Correct, just like they read the Beano when young.

    Heartening.

    The BBC Presenter of Radio 4‘s “Inside Science“, Adam Rutherford, has been reprimanded by the BBC for organising an Anti-Science campaign against the re-selection of the Labour MP Graham Stringer, to the House of Commons Science & Technology Committee, despite the fact Stringer is the only scientist on the Committee, and its not the job of BBC employees, to lobby Parliament against appointing a Scientist to a Science Committee, in the same way that the BBC discriminates against Causational Climate scientists from attending BBC Climate Science seminars.

    Rutherford, a Geneticist who worked with Geneticist Steve Jones, both appointed experts on Climate science by the BBC, called on environmental activists to complain about Stringer in letters to their Members of Parliament, and invited the chair of the committee onto his programme.

    As far as we can see, the senior management at the BBC has told Rutherford that he can keep his job with the BBC, but has been advised to keep a low profile from now on.

    This follows other incidents including an incident when the BBC ruled that a radio debate about climate change, involving former Chancellor of the Exchequer Lord Lawson should have been censored.

    That was widely condemned by MPs, including both Members of Parliament with scientific qualifications. Peter Lilley, saying it shows the BBC is ‘afraid of letting a single critic point out  that the climate change emperor has no clothes’. His Labour colleague Graham Stringer who is also a scientist said: ‘This is a form of censorship’.

    Graham Stringer said about his complaint about Rutherford

    “I appreciate the BBC’s swift and appropriate response to my complaint. I have been a member of the Science and Technology Committee for 10 years.
    I have a degree in chemistry and have worked as a scientist in industry for a decade. I will continue to use my scientific training to look at all the issues that come before the Committee, including global warming.”

    I understand that members of the Royal Society of Chemistry have managed to keep the society free from being dragged into the shit hole that the Royal Society has found itself in, as regards its position on Climate Science. This I presume is because the formula used to calculate carbon-dioxide warming in a Planetary Atmosphere, is a Chemical formula that Chemists and Atmospheric Physicists with Chemical training, should be the first scientists to see, that the assumed results of the formula do not, and have never produced any real results in the real world.

    Sceptics have managed to save the reputation of the “Royal Society of Chemistry” for the future survival of the “age of reason“ in its battle against the BBC and its favoured employees like Rutherford and Cox, who remain employed by the BBC.

      Poor Al beeb – being attacked on many fronts. According to the Telegraph Mr Farage is stated as saying he will refuse to pay his TV licence if John Sweeney – a reported of huge ego – does not apologise for his accusation about ” blood on his. Hands” in relation to the non existent brexit hate crime in Harlow ( where plod imported polish police to ” reassure” local foreigners wasting taxpayers money).

      Al beeb has been pretty good at playing the underdog victim in these circumstances.

    The London BBC news are all over a story about the latest outrage the police have caused by entering a mosque and (can you believe it?) NOT REMOVING THEIR SHOES!
    Well, let’s be honest here; the police are called to an incident inside the mosque and, without any thought of cultural sensitivity, blithely rush in. Quite clearly this is deeply offensive and every single offending officer should immediately be sacked…possibly beheaded.
    Back on planet earth for a while, don’t you think, if you were a bloody rag-head, after the endless problems this poxy third world superstition has caused, you’d just try to keep quiet for a bit. Maybe keep your head down. Not this lot. They’re furious. They are incandescent with rage. Well, let’s be honest, they usually are pissed off about something or other, I sometimes wonder how they put up with us…
    The videos showing the outrage have “gone viral” and, as you might expect, the BBC showed us the darned thing numerous times, while their gimp reporter sat there in his socks.
    Meanwhile Muzzies across Blighty are so angry that they’re threatening to return to their homelands.

    The BBC cut the footage of Diane Abbott’s embarrassing moment short so she didn’t look a fool – strange thing about footage, what you do and don’t show.

    Is Theresa REALLY concerned about modern slavery? Concerned enough to identify slavery as an [ISLAMIC] practise?
    Didn’t think so.
    She’s asking “Londoners” to look out for signs of slavery in their own “communities”.
    I wonder if their will be a citation for those who blow the whistle on MUSLIM rape gangs?
    Don’t think so.
    Will she be wagging her finger at part-and-parcel Kahn?

    What this is more likely to be is a virtue-signalling exercise to try to help her reputation.

    Nigel Farage on LBC, has just effectively announce that he will lead the non-payment of the BBC Licence Fee martyrs, if the BBC does not apologise for its “Fake News” story saying “Nigel Farage has blood on his hands” after a drunken Polish immigrant Arkadiusz Jozwik was killed by a 16-year-old boy from Harlow in Essex, who has now been sentenced to 3½ years in a young offenders institution for manslaughter.

    The CPS suggested there was no evidence that the lad who punched Mr Jozwik was driven by anti-Polish prejudice. Evidence in court suggested that Jozwik and his friend “appeared to be drunk and smelt of alcohol”. Blood tests showed Mr Jozwik was around twice the drink-drive limit. In court, the boy responsible for the killer punch claimed the Polish men were “aggressive and loud” and saying: “Fight me, fight me.”
    He also said it was the Poles who used racist language. He said one of the Polish men grabbed a friend of his and called him a “nigger”. And according to psychological reports the boy regretted his actions and felt remorse over Mr Jozwik’s death. He did not mean to kill him. Therefore what “BBC Fake News” called a murder, turned out to be manslaughter.

    Even Jozwik’s brother Radek has said “None of us had ever suffered any racism. I never thought his death was race-related. I think he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. English people have always been friendly and welcoming.”

    The 16 year old was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in a young offenders institution, for manslaughter.

    I believe Farage said that he went to the BBC and personally handed over his complaint to Lord Hall.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/09/19/exclusive-nigel-farage-says-could-stop-paying-licence-fee-bbc/

    From Vince Cable’s speech…
    “Let me be clear about this. This is not a call for a re-run. This is not a call for a second referendum on Brexit. This is a call for a first referendum on the facts. When we know what Brexit means, the people should get the choice: The Government deal or an ‘exit from Brexit’. We know, of course, that our call will be resented by the Brexit fundamentalists. We will be denounced as traitors and saboteurs. I’m half prepared for a spell in a cell with Supreme Court judges, Gina Miller, Ken Clarke, and the governors of the BBC. But if the definition of sabotage is fighting to protect British jobs, public services, the environment and civil liberties, then I am a proud saboteur. Brexiteers will say: “we have already voted to leave. How dare you people flout democracy.”
    “the governors of the BBC.” he said. so they are Brexit saboteurs.

        Dover Sentry, I’ve wondered for some time whether the coming of Blair, and all that followed, had something to do with the fact that most of the WW2 generation and the National Service generation had retired from public life by then. Certainly the cultural revolution of the 1960s was linked to the coming of age of the first generation that had never really known war or hardship. Blair (and in the states, Clinton) was the triumph of that generation.

          That said, the real damage was done by the generation before – led by the Marxists expelled from Germany who took Frankfurt school madness with them to US (for the most part) universities. It was they who laid the groundwork for the 1960s.

          You`re onto something big here Cranmer.
          When I was growing up, even I knew that we`d all have been speaking German had the old coots I was expected to dislike had not sacrificed their all for me and mine.
          Only trouble was that they had tired of history and of renewal after the draining victory over the Nazis-and freewheeled into the second half of the century, grateful that they could still have kids , get dentures, avoid the workhouse and get their kids to univeristies via grammar schools. And a pension too. All very laudable and understandable. But no churches, no vison, no faith, drift and the perpetual infestation by the clever lefties like Laski, Hobsbawn and Eagleton over here in Britain.
          That generation died off, we left knew nothing of those “spiritual forces and higher powers” that create Eus, UNs, Vietnams and Afpaks…so now here we are, having to learn the hard way-with no experience of fighting, no awareness of what death and destruction are in reality. Our grandparents and parents did…they`d not have let islam stamp on our faces as we`ve done.
          And they`d have strung up the quislings, starting with David Frost maybe?

    Biased BBC 1 news at 2215.
    Huw Edwards reports that the deaths at Grenfell Tower may be slightly lower than previous estimates.
    He also reports that the Police are considering various charges against individuals and corporations whose actions or negligence may have contributed.
    But strangely, Huw did not join the dots to report that the reason the death toll estimate has gone down is that the police are investigating fraudulent claims by so-called residents.

    Now why would our fine impartial national broadcaster be so selective with its reporting?

      I think nobody in the higher echelons of the Conservatives really wanted to preside over Brexit, as they are part and parcel of the globalised, pro-EU, international elite. Let’s just hope that the Brexit negotiations continue reasonably well and that a new breed of pro-Brexit, patriotic Tories can start working their way to the top. Mr Rees-Mogg of course is one such but claims he does not want to be PM; perhaps someone similar will arise. Cometh the hour, cometh the man (or woman).

        I was told to use to use yogurt for any fungal issues down below.
        None of this vaginitis and Tena pants stuff back then, just thrush itchings or cystitis.
        Never used mayo, but -coming to think of it- thousand island dressing has the colour I`d have expected, had some lady decided she wasn`t happy with us.
        It was a simpler time-off to make our salad now, all this has made me a bit peckish.

    Beeb website reports criticism of Trump’s UN ‘hate speech’. Apparently Iran’s foreign minister did not like it; I am sure he is a bastion of fair-minded objectivity.

    Should you try and cuddle people who seek to destroy you? That is clearly the Beeb’s policy and we are all seeing how disastrous that is. Bullies like Kim only respect strength.

    Of course the noble Beeb would never sink to hate speech. Their treatment of Trump and Brexit voters has been entirely decent and balanced.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-41314562

    BBC Breakfast this morning carries lots of news about Mexican earthquakes and Caribbean hurricanes – not the sort of news that is likely to affect millions about to commute to work here in the UK.

    Can’t help but feel the Licence fee levied on the masses is subsidising the interests of a minority with a global-mindset.

    Lanky lightweight Dan Walker notices that “the main stories we’re covering are not actually on the front pages of the papers”.

    Dan rationalises that this may just be a matter of timing – we’ll take his word for it.

      AISI, don’t have a problem with the BBC delivering world news to me but where was positive news about the EU and Europe from 1973-1992 and 1992-2016? Where was any news whatsoever about the Syrian conflict & peace process for the last two months? What about some news from Ukraine? Gaza & Israel? The rest of Oceana, Australia apart. The rest of Latin America, apart from Brazil & Venezuela – precious little from that last one, despite the horrors going on there? What about the small ASEAN countries: Vietnam is storming ahead in recovery from its past horrors. Any news about that, BBC? Nope.

      Nothing for weeks on end but then a BBC News Programme will suddenly ‘rediscover’ the rest of the world and have something for me that they think I should know. That is not news coverage: it is propaganda.

    Asiseeit,
    Probably at the the same time Humpreys (£650000) was asking a foreign office minister what we are going to do for Mexico ( as in send taxpayers money there).? I choked on my cup of tea on this one. Humpreys is a post war son of the declining empire. A grammar school boy. He sees Blighty as a world donor . The oecd won’t let our government to use the £13 000 000 000 taxpayers money in the overseas development fund on developed countries. So we could be spending even more tax money for Mexico . Send charity money by all means but not taxpayers – yours and mine. Or at best take a few million out of the BBC budget and send that

    They get all hot and bothered about trans this and trans that as well as whether boys and girls should be boys and girls.

    In the same breath they wonder why depression and suicide is rising. Do they really need an answer when they are fucking ( chosen word ) so many people up with this stuff. All because a handful of queers are moaning . Queers is ok to use because al Beeb had a queer week recently.

          gax, it is more so when he is obviously politicking. John Humphrys used to be a very good journalist but he is now very old and very much past his best. Time to retire, John.

          Like many at the BBC he is being paid shed loads of money to air his defective memory & attention span of a gnat on air while trying to beat his Monarch’s Government of the Day (and its Ministers) over the head with a besom. This morning was hilarious: Owen Paterson 2:0 John Humphrys; Alan Duncan 3:0 John Humphrys; Laura Kuenssberg 0:-1 John Humphrys. (I wonder if a BBC ‘engineer’ found a sudden fault that needed an urgent change of ‘connections’?)

      What about the constant threat of terrorism? Thanks to their suicidal multiculturalism and open borders policy young people must be terrified of what the country will look like when they are older. It’s bad enough now but I don’t see how it will not get much, much worse. That none of our leaders has any policy ideas whatsoever to deal with it would depress even the most resilient amongst us. And you can get put in prison for even mentioning the problem! It’s just like 1984.

    Sky news has become an absolute disgrace in it’s so-called impartial reporting.

    http://news.sky.com/story/germanys-afd-near-historic-success-with-controversial-ad-campaign-11043846

    The picture shown in the link is accompanied by the caption “Burkas? We prefer bikinis” and is one of several posters being used by the AfD (Alternative for Germany) party in their campaign for the upcoming elections in Germany.

    Sky report that they are “radical far right” and “reminiscent of the Nazis”. They say that these posters are highly controversial and then try and somehow smear President Trump by mentioning that the company who run the advertising once did some work for him.

    They then state that with the AfD about to win seats in the German parliament it is “deeply alarming for the German political establishment”.

    Someone needs to tell Sky that the way elections work is that the people vote for a party and the party with the most votes wins. If that means that the “establishment” lose then they need to take a good hard look at the reasons why.

    The sooner Rupert Murdoch takes back control of Sky the better.

    From Katya Adler to Humphries the BBC Today team are again doing their ‘Hilary bit’ in support of the status quo in Germany. No objective analysis; no balance (anaylis of the opposing parties); no sharp questions. Just a fluffy and soft appraisal of Mummy’s benefits, supported by carefully selected interviewees. So much obvious support for “Mummy” Merkel it is nauseating. I turned the radio ‘off’ and it stayed that way.

        Gaxvil – the BBC’s obsession with diversity of everything (except political opinion) is actually rather sinister, because it makes it look ‘inclusive’ on the surface, with muslim cake bakers, gay vicars, lesbian dancers, tranny potters etc. The average viewer looks at it and thinks ‘well the BBC must be alright, because they allow everyone to take part!’ Yet those with the ‘wrong’ views – even if they are gay, or black – do not get a look-in.
