    This charming gentleman has been jailed for ‘supporting Islamic State group’ as the beebistan delicately put it, or ‘telling children to join ISIS’ as some less delicate media put it (so rude, dahling). Or in his own even less delicate words, Hussain stirred up his congregation by telling them that the right-wing English Defence League and Britain First were funded by the Government to attack Muslims.
    “The kuffar (unbeliever) will attack you and kill you,” he told them.
    “Stand up and be ready to sacrifice, be ready to stand in the face of the elements of Shaytan (Satan), be ready to spill blood and have your blood spilt.”
    “Finish them and remove their heads for what they do, when you don’t fulfil the command of Allah, I’m coming to remove your head.”
    So in unequivocal terms he was exhorting them to murder us. I wonder how many more there are like him lurking in mosques across the land.
    The beebistan sees fit to post this news item deep in its ‘Regions’ under Stoke. I don’t know if it’s on their tv news (I never watch) but I suspect not.
    ‘Hey, one more terrorist imam, what’s the big deal?’

      OK, so how long has this been going on? Stoke imam jailed for supporting Islamic State group {bbc.co.uk 28sep2017}

      1) How long has Hussain been preaching like this? Years?
      2) Why was it an undercover person and not the community that found this out?
      3) How many other people/Imam/members will continue his message or agree with it?

      BBC, please fire up your £3.5bn, paid under threat of prison, News Service.

    “N Korea: ‘Lunatic’ Trump exploiting Otto Warmbier’s death”

    So the BBC choose to highlight the callous response of a nation that it accepts has atrocious human rights and an unstable dictator threatening neighbouring countries and the U.S with nuclear bombs.

    Whatever happened to denying criminals/terrorists of any press coverage as we do with Islamic Terrorism?

    I think at this point they would quote ISIS if it shone a poor light on Trump.

    A crowd wearing Islamic dress gathered in Seven Kings, Ilford, east London
    Two men shouted Allahu Akbar into a mic while sounding gunshots on a speaker
    They played the speaker ‘even louder when a bus driver asked them to move’

  5. Doublethinker says:

    There is an excellent piece in the Spectator this week about fostering of so called refugees. The writer interviewed several foster ‘ parents’ of these ‘ refugees’ and found the situation exactly as contributors to this site would expect. Most of the child refugees are well over sixteen ,almost all are males, many well into their twenties with the serious attitude problems that we would expect males from a Muslim culture to have, contempt for women, hatred of Other cultures and religions. Many of the foster parents are scared to death of their foster ‘ children’ . How many more bombers in the bedroom , or in the garden shed , have been allowed into our country ? And we are expected to support them whilst they gather their munitions with which to blow us up. The Foster parents report this to the relevant authorities and are met with silence, no one is willing to do anything to help. My advice is to resign , become fundamental Christians and force the authorities to move them.
    Whilst this is going on British children who need the guidance and support of these good people cannot find a home to take them in because the system is overwhelmed by the numbers of ‘ refugees’. Of course many of these aliens are here illegally but the authorities do nothing to stem the illegal flow, nor to take action against them.
    All of this is happening with a conservative government . God knows how much worse it will be with a Labour one.
    Enoch Powell was right , we are mad , literally mad , to allow this to continue. But we all know that no one in the Government or MSM either wants or would dare to report on this appalling situation. We are cutting our own throats. The liberal left are destroying the liberty and freedom they purport to cherish. With every passing day I thank God that I am 65 and unlikely to be around in twenty or thirty years times when we will be looking at the end of the West . It also makes me realise that compared with this invasion of our homeland by Muslim hordes Brexit is but a pinprick and it really doesn’t matter one way or the other.

    DT: “Theresa May threatens US with trade war over Bombardier row”

    Oh great, just what we need, and now of all times.

    I wonder if Trump is reconsidering his earlier ‘front of the queue’ attitude, and could it perchance have anything to do with the constant vitriolic insults he is subjected to by our Parliament (yes you, Berkeley Hunt Berk-O), our politicians (Khan amongst many others) our Press, and of course our very own national treasure, the Biased Broadcasting Corp.

    Let me put it in simple terms even a liberal might understand, even a Leftie: would YOU want to be best friends with someone who hated your guts, and insulted, belittled and mocked you at every possible opportunity, every second of the day?


    • Doublethinker says:

      President Trump would have to be a masochist to want to be friends with the British establishment but I hope that he realises that millions of Brits admire him and wish him every success in his Herculean task of turning America around. We only wish that we had someone like him over here. I’m afraid that the US liberal left establishment is just part of a Global establishment that reacts to challenges from the ordinary people with severe force and of course they focus on those who lead the insurrection of the ordinary people e.g. Trump , Farage, Le Pen .
      Please DT don’t back down , the whole of the West needs you.


      • G.W.F. says:

        It is making sense from Treezer’s perspective. Attack Trump at the UN, support the wretched Emir of London when he attacks Trump, and now a trade war. Trump gets pissed off and reconsiders his trade deal, and Treezer turns to the EU where we belong. Let’s have another referendum is the conclusion.


        • MartinW says:

          I wish you were wrong, but I think that is a very plausible timeline. Either the woman is stupid, or cunning and deceitful – I think the latter.


        • Lefty Wright says:

          That’s certainly one scenario but surely the possible consequences of such a gamble are too dire to contemplate. Especially as the P.M. has just gambled and lost big time.

      Theresa May threatens U.S.?
      Isn’t that a bit like a mouse running up an elephant’s leg with intent to rape?
      Or is it just a case of “Take no notice of what we say – Watch what we do”?
      I just can’t believe that this posturing is for real. Cui Bono?

    Arrests of far right, masses of cops involved. Hard to see what they have done and how they are linked to the murder of Jo.

    A neighbour commented on two of the suspected terrorists.
    “They just keep themselves to themselves. I’ve seen them walking about. It’s an older couple with two boys and a girl.”
    Another resident said the family had lived there for about 30 years. “They never speak to anybody. I don’t know them,” he added. “There’s never been any kind of trouble at the house before.”

      Yes the police will have a list of conservative voters soon – just in case they might be being groomed to be patriotic or believe in low taxes and personal responsibility. Perverts .


  9. Fedup2 says:

    Do you ever notice the way some shootings by police are dealt with differently by al Beeb?
    ( there are very few each year -6 so far this year I reckon)
    Anyway – the shooting of a chap in his car a couple of days ago seems to not be followed up at all – they said it wasn’t terrorist related and no ‘community’ ‘representatives ( often fellow criminals ) “ he weren’t no angel “ and no torchlight vigil with al Beeb big wigs – Hew ~ the Asian on – c4 snow or guru Murphy.

    I’m starting think maybe the shot person isn’t black – god help us if it’s a pole from Harlow because they’ll be rolling out the Polish ambo and spurting crap about hate crime. Again.


  10. Charlie Martel says:

    Compare and contrast: the Good muslims who help clear rubbish in Birmingham get onto the beebistan home page, under ‘must see’ while the bad muslim imam who encouraged his followers to join ISIS gets safely buried in Regions.
    “Stoke imam jailed for supporting Islamic State group”
    Fair and balanced? Or propaganda?

    And btw, he did much worse than the rather innocuous sounding ‘support IS’, he told his followers to murder kafirs (us). But the beeb won’t tell you that of course:
    ‘Hussain stirred up his congregation by telling them that the right-wing English Defence League and Britain First were funded by the Government to attack Muslims.
    “The kuffar (unbeliever) will attack you and kill you,” he told them.
    “Stand up and be ready to sacrifice, be ready to stand in the face of the elements of Shaytan (Satan), be ready to spill blood and have your blood spilt”…
    “Finish them and remove their heads for what they do, when you don’t fulfil the command of Allah, I’m coming to remove your head.”

    The result is that democratic consent for the EU in Britain is now wafer-thin.

    At the end of that debate you, the British people, will decide.

    I know there will be those who say the vision I have outlined will be impossible to achieve. That there is no way our partners (EU) will co-operate. That the British people have set themselves on a path to inevitable exit. And that if we aren’t comfortable being in the EU after 40 years, we never will be.

  12. Fedup2 says:


    There was a documentary about Brexit on r4 recently – I risked it – knowing the angle it would take. They referred to a key document the EC council will refer to during the negotiations . The 4 key principles – capital – labour – services – goods – are immovable. I knew this but the doc is interesting in its language. I don’t know what we are negotiating about . Just tell them we are going, agree an exit bill based on transparent billing and agree bilaterals for EU UK citizens living in respective countries.

    Start the transition period as soon as possible and get gone – in two years from now eh?


  13. Beeb Brother says:

    Apologies if it has already been mentioned, but Prick Robinson’s lecture about Beeb journalism on the website is hilarious. It’s ridiculous how seriously they take themselves, professing to ‘challenge the consensus’ via ‘diversity of thought’, commited to an ‘impartial’ quest to obtain ‘the best obtainable version of the truth.’

    I caught some of the Today headlines this morning and they were about: a new rule in cricket; something to do with homosexual clergymen, which we have heard about a billion times; then a lengthy ‘news’ report about the Rohingya Muslims, following their ‘best obtainable version of the truth’ that Islam is a wonderful religion of peace – a truth shoved down our throats in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. A gay rights issue which was news 30 years ago and new rules for cricket – what fearless challenging of the consensus!

    The truth is ‘hate speech’/thought crime to them, hence their hysterical response to Trump’s honesty.

    Does he honestly believe this nonsense? I had a job once doing telesales and I had to convince myself I actually believed in the shady crap we were peddling in order to convince people into buying it. I guess it is the same with these hucksters and conmen in the MSM.


    • Charlie Martel says:

      Beeb – yes, the pretentious mendacious Robinson crap HAS been referred to before, and I’m delighted you bring it up, deconstruct it and mock it again. The lies can never be exposed too much!


      • Beeb Brother says:

        Fearless quest to obtain the truth?

        Is that via vox pops, asking any random moron what they think about something then carefully editing their responses?

        Via constant ad hominem attacks like ‘Far Right’, name calling being the lowest form of argument?

        Via refusing to report on anything that might be ‘offensive’ which leaves us with little but celebrity gossip, isolated narratives and PR plugs for pet issues masquerading as journalism? (Churnalism.)

    I wonder what the views of the snowflakes will be if their temples of lies are attacked by Muslims. Will they still be saying that they’re not all like that and that it’s all OK really, an easy thing when it hasn’t happened to you and yours.


  24. Al Shubtill says:

    I watched a report on Look North last night about the arrest of one of the National Action “terrorists”. The reporter, Dan Johnson, stated that N.A. were a proscribed organization because:

    “It was banned by the Home Office late last year, they said that its anti-immigrant views and its sympathies with the man called Thomas Mair, the man who murdered Jo Cox meant that it needed to be banned.”

    The Army Bomb Disposal team turned up and were at the house for ten minutes before they left, finding nothing.

    Look North named this chap and showed his picture, even though he apparently hasn’t been charged with anything yet, so his house will probably become a target and so will he. How different the coverage is from that of the perps in the “grooming gangs” where Al beebus had an extreme reluctance to even report the court cases, never mind name and show the creatures who were convicted.

    In Britain today, it would seem, that a group of indigenous subjects can be classified as a terrorist organization and its members arrested, even if they haven’t: threatened or attacked anyone or anything but just said some things which some people with power don’t like.
    This is very f*****g dangerous road that “our” country is going down and right thinking people should be worried.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Al – that bit in Dads Army with the U boat captain telling pike “you are on the list “ ( which al Beeb likes to replay whenever it can) is starting to ring true. I’ve said here before – we are no doubt on a list somewhere.

      We must be due to have a ‘Department of Public Safety’ -,which – if I recall- was the one the French revolutionaries had for drawing up names for the guillotine.

      I wonder if these bans can be challenged ? But I suppose they’d get tame judges to give the ban a tick.

      • Broadcasting-on-Behalf-of-the-Caliphate says:

        Thanks “Guest Who”. Brilliant work.

        General comment to all – this is just an idea: I think we need to have groups of volunteer part time researchers with each group focusing on bias and propaganda from the various different sections of the BBC, such as:

        Asian Network.
        World Service.
        Have I missed anything?

        Some of this needs to be split into subgroups.

        Each group/ subgroup should create a separate but linked website which stores the various found biases and propaganda etc. & which also allows comments and discussion.

        This should then provide core material to start challenging the Government through various avenues – to end the BBC tax asap. We need to persuade the public, relevant institutions, political parties, appropriate influential individuals to accept there is a problem. A reformed, diminished BBC could be a compromise position.


        • Guest Who says:


          Most here stumble across stuff as we seek education and information beyond that deemed adequate by those in Westminster.

          And copy and pasted links tell a simple factual story that lets the reader decide about BBC impartiality with their own lying eyes and ears.

          What might be an idea is collated topic categories like those in the top nave (I’ll leave that autocorrect in) bar to archive such examples.

          They may represent welcome Maxicony free zones at least, but the BBC will remain unaccountable and exempt a while longer, sadly.

    Interpol approves Palestinian membership despite Israeli opposition Keywords: Fox and Chicken Coop.
    Was Israel the only opponent? ‘Israeli media reported that 75 members voted “yes”, 24 voted “no”, and 34 abstained.’ In BBC speak that is a euphemism for ‘figures not to be trusted’. So why didn’t the BBC perform some real journalism as check for themselves? Did none of the 24 ‘No’ votes oppose?

    While I grant it was a secret vote (why?) shouldn’t the BBC have asked the British representatives how the United Kingdom voted?

    On Tuesday, two ‘anonymous’ Israeli security guards and a border policeman were shot dead by a Palestinian at the entrance to a ‘anonymous’ Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank. Was the BBC too busy to even check the names? Let me help the BBC. The dead were named, Solomon Gabariya, Youssef Ottman and Or Arish. It might have been ‘interesting’ to note that Gabariya was Ethiopian and Ottman was an Arab? You know, background.

    ‘The attack was the latest in a wave of stabbings, shootings and car-rammings of Israelis predominantly (?) by Palestinians or Israeli Arabs.’ Would the BBC name one such attack that was carried out by anyone not Palestinian or Israeli Arab?

      The thick beeboids can’t even notice, in their puff piece, that the big rise in trade deficit occurred between 1998 and 2010 (last graphic).

      Is there a common denominator for that period of history?

      “I’m an American patriot, and I love this country… this immigrant ban is a blemish and it’s un-American.”
      “My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France.”
      The fallacy of misrepresentation : There is/was no general immigrant ban.

    Biased BBC website front page news headline
    ‘Reality check- Do more Brits want dual EU nationality’
    And a nice picture of Colin Firth who is getting himself an Italian passport.
    Fuether down- almost all the increase is Brits taking out Irish passports- there is after all a long historic link.
    At the bottom of the story and not mentioned in the headline – lots of EU citizens are taken out UK citizenship!

    So in fact any ‘Brexit effect’ cuts both ways and the numbers anyway are small fractions of our total immigration. It is thus a non-story, not a headline story. What the bBBC would call Fake News if it came from their non-preferred competitors.
    But of course the biased BBC want you to think it is happening in droves and in only one direction in which case it must be ‘because of Brexit’. Hence the headline.
    They really are the pits.


    • Scroblene says:

      Yup, this was all over R5 Dead earlier this morning! WTF has all that got to do with balanced ‘news’?

      And then we had a confusing several-minute gabble from the WAPO, all anti-President Trump as usual. Apparently he’s stepping up arrests of illegal immigrants, but the lawyers in the US are climbing over themselves to get paid to represent the poor suckers!

      Of course, Barry O deported 400,000, but he did it all correctly… Oh yeah? Well he would wouldn’t he! Wonder if they checked all the passports, y’know, for bits made up etc…

      BBBC is just tearing itself apart these days with its crass reporting and it’s so obvious that they’re on a huge dip in popularity from nearly everyone with half a brain.


    • MarkyMark says:

      So when the BBC use a question in the article they are saying how they would like the World to be rather than reporting on the World that is.

      Is the BBC biased?

      Is Trump going to be impeached?

      Is Brexit a failure?

      Is using a question in a news article good journalism?


    • Sluff says:

      And just to make absolutely sure we get the message, this was also featured on the 8am Toady news.
      That is, the UK citizens applying for EU citizenship was mentioned.
      But the comparable EU citizens applying for UK citizenship was not.


      • Nibor says:

        My link to this story would be that non EU nationals don’t seem worried about their status regarding Brexit .
        So would the BBC ask why Poles , Lithuanians etc seemed happy to come here before they were in the EU , when they were illegal , than they are now ? And why loads of people are still trying to leave the EU and get here , as we see in Calais and now the ports of Spain ?

        Although the Beeb might not want to ask such questions as it will open up why our immigration system is broken , due the the Gramscian infestation of the civil service .

    The short morning tv BBC London News bulletin is a fine piece of work
    It’s amzing how much leftist editorial agenda can be packed into so constrained a format.

    Routine stabbings in the capital are ignored, consigned to the traffic reports when Police mopping up activity unfortunately causes road closures.

    Our cheery news anchor ‘Arthur’ Patel in her bright floral dress seems to have one eye on the upcoming annual global warming figures as she reassures us that the local weather forcast 19 degrees temperature is ‘quite pleasant, really’. Wouldn’t want the audience to be scratching their heads in disbelief when we’re told in November ‘it’s really been the warmest year eva!’

    And of course there are those times when BBC London News feels the need to reiterate national BBC news headlines – like this morning when they’re drumming home the NHS nursing trades union survey of what some of their members have been invited to moan about. On the national show the union shop steward insists that statistics about the increasing number of nurses don’t matter, it’s the anecdotal stories that count – hmmmm…?

    I’ve not studied medicine – well, not beyond sitting through about a hundred episodes of Hugh Lawrie in House (at the urgent request of my teenaged daughters). But there was a line that went something like ‘the first rule of fight club’ which impressed on young medics “Never believe what a patient says” I’ve a feeling that although this is not a particularly PC comment it would be a sound bit of advice for a science based medical training. So do I believe this survey? The BBC does – unquestioningly (assuming that’s a word, it’s a good one for the BBC’s editorial reaction to leftist inspired news).


  39. Sluff says:

    Nice example of the cretinous bBBC.
    Long interview with Mark Carney on Toady at 0810.
    Now I know Carney’s not everyone’s cup of tea on this site, but in my opinion he played the whole interview with a pretty straight bat. What was as a result therefore all the more noticeable was that
    1. Humphries was determined to put words in his mouth and also try and use them out of context. Carney had to call him outbon that a few times.
    2. After the interview we have to have a bBBC expert to interpret what was said by Carney? Why? Carney was perfectly understandable.
    3. The news headlines immediately follow and we get staright away the worstbdoom and gloom anti Brexit selective quotes from the interview.

    Oh that we were in The Middle Ages and could lock the seditious BBC in the tower.


    • Nibor says:

      What the BBC doesn’t ask ;

      If we are going to have a recession , contraction or whatever of the economy , what are the Powers That Be doing about all the immigrants , mainly illegal , that are trying to get here ?

      Are they going to be fed and housed , at our expense , with all the trimmings . Or do the PTB hope they get here , can’t get benefits or a job , and go elsewhere . ( And if they go elsewhere , will it be to other EU countries , to be on their dole queues ? ) .
