    The BBC are interviewing a lot of ex civil servants ( who are now earning a a good bit from suspect organisations ) about Brexit , the effect on the governance of the country and the stresses put upon — civil servants .

    Well the extra stress , if they ever were stressed , won’t last too long because they retire with good pensions at sixty .

      All new contracts are 65 retirement, Nibor. I was 60 – after 11 years’ service. Pension contributions have also been increased….. BUT! nowhere near enough to cover what is received under the CPI-linked pension scheme. In addition, whenever the PCS union went on strike, not all civil servants joined it – many in my East Kilbride contact centre worked and crossed the picket line.

      They don’t want to have to get visa s to get to their villas in Southern Europe well away from the rabble they have turned Blighty into with their open door immigration policies and slavish obedience to Eu directives and regulations .

      Al beeb is yet to broadcast a pro brexit civil servant . I guess it might have been neutral once but by the time Blair had finished with it it became an extension of the Labour Party like the rest of the so called public service

    Sorry not the Beeb, but it was reported on here yesterday about the Pledge on Sky being a toxic view. Which it was, and I felt so strongly that I complained to Sky – who, to be fair, replied that the edition was ‘under investigation’. I see the usual repeat tonight is not the episode shown on Thursday, but an older edition from a few weeks ago. Clearly someone cocked up in having an imbalance of views, 4-1 which left Carole Malone valiantly fighting her corner on her own. At least Sky have had the decency to pull it from the schedules.

      Good for you.

      I watched some of that show, and was frankly amazed. It was like a kangaroo court, and Carole Malone was the one accused of thought crime. The fact that the views of the majority of British voters were represented by one person against four was utterly bizarre, and Carole was treated like one of the accused at the Salem witch trial.

      The BBC are much better at bias than Sky, who are relative newcomers. This show was so over the top as to be completely indefensible.

      To Maxi and friends: if you ever see a show on British TV where four Brexiteers berate and browbeat one Remainer, do be good enough to let us know. I am sure that happens as often as examples of that right wing bias on the BBC which you seem to have been unable to spot so far.

        Oaknash,

        Sociology is a nothing degree; something people do when they can’t do anything else……three years of University consisting of one lecture a week and a group hug. Lots of “reading around the subject” needed – all conducted either in the pub or whilst fast asleep until mid-day.

        Lots of people follow up this joke of a qualification with a quick course in journalism and then become experts on everything. I’ve met better qualified lollipop ladies.

          Dead right Option 3!
          The recent “Revolution In Ideas” on Radio 4 let its own cat out of the bag when it linked the Russian Revolution of 1917 to a sudden turbocharging of both sociology and psychology. Neither had been other than cranial bump rubs or Engels-post it notes until the “useful idiots of the west” decided that it would remove God, families and create a world for gays, abortionist feminazis, black supremacists and commie pot stirrers funded by Lenin-in secret.
          Oh-and pagan earth worshippers who love nature and green issues-but hate people , and any attempt to seek facts from the mush.

          Worked like a charm too-we western goons and fainthearts swallowed the lot, even as Uncle Joe Stalin was failing to live up to the useful idiots mantras.
          We live with the consequences today.

          Sociology, psychology and psychiatry-as well as educational and child development are all Soviet domains, with Nazi add ins…which is why the left insist on them. Black quackery, masquerading as “science”…
          Still-as long as there`s a poll, an advert or a screen-then these totalising musings will get treated as if there`s truth to them.
          Home movies of Vygotsky by Riefenstahl seems to sum it all up.

        Funny how people from other cultures who are allowed to share our civilisation are so easy to rubbish it.

        Perhaps they’d burn their British passports and apply for their fathers( if they know who that is ) – in the relevant commonwealth country and then perhaps go there .

        There are plenty of them happily making a living out of the rights industry and justifying everything because of what our empire did life times ago . It wasn’t great for the British working class who did the dirty work for the aristocracy.i am proud of our past .

      “The flag is not a symbol of pride but oppression”

      Really? Talking of “oppression”, how about this:

      At least the UK Government is elected. The system might not be perfect, but no system is. If you think it’s acceptable to behave in this way, I should be free to disrespect any damn religion, in any way I see fit. Religion is not compulsory, and it is not selected by us, by popular vote. It is a personal choice and, accordingly, there is no reason why it should be above criticism or ridicule any more than any other lifestyle choice.

      Freedom should cut both ways.

      And another thing. We’re not so “oppressive” that we prevent malcontents from seeking happier lives elsewhere. Please feel free to avail yourself of this option.

    Fox News: Teen sexually assaulted three separate times in under an hour

    A 17-year-old girl was sexually assaulted three times in the span of an hour as she walked home from a night out in London, police said.

    The teenager, who was not identified, became separated from her friends following a night at the Tower Hamlets club in east London when she was attacked three times in quick succession. The terrifying incidents happened between 11:55 p.m. on Sept. 29 and 12:55 a.m. on Sept. 30.

    Two BBC Islamist Propaganda Video Stories currently on their World News section.

    1) Meet Ted, US Marine. Angered after the Paris 2015 Terrorist attack he fired a gun at a Mosque. But later he realised he was wrong. He came to recognise that Islam is Peace. The Quran had been misquoted by evil white supremacists. He now realises the Quran teaches peace and love to all person-kind. This is Ted’s redemption story:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/video_and_audio/headlines/41601034/he-shot-at-a-mosque-and-his-life-changed

    2) In this sad story the BBC report that the US coalition are refusing safe passage to Islamic State fighters and so consequently are putting at risk the lives of 5000 civilians. City elders had worked tirelessly to broker the deal with IS fighters but Donald Trump’s mad, bad and racist United States have scuppered the deal:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-middle-east-41615529/us-coalition-refuses-safe-passage-to-raqqa-s-is-fighters

    3) In light of story 2 what can we the ordinary people do to declare our anger at the US? Let’s all take a knee:

    Anticlimaxing on a regular basis
    There’s probably some more pithy and fitting – but decidedly x-rated – phrase for what BBC Newswatch does with viewer concerns about the news served to us by the corporation.

    With anticipation we hear the complaints, we nod in recognition and we await redress…

    The plausible but inadequate Samira Ahmed plays the role of the on-call-at-all-hours legal-aid duty advocate going through the motions for her imprisoned clientele – but inevitably she is ultimately and sadly deferential to the BBC news managers.

    I’ll sum it up for you for this Saturday’s edition. I hardly need paraphrase the rather hackneyed entirely entitled arguments…

    “It was all within editorial guidelines”

    “We think were right to do it that way”

    Dear mainstream media – and in particular, the BBC.

    I would like you to know, that I never watch, or listen to, or read the bollocks you put out on a daily basis, purporting to be news, because it’s lies, make-believe, altered, fakery, changed out of all proportion by omission, and laughably stupid.

    I, and increasingly others, tend to learn what we need to know, elsewhere, from sources which although not guaranteed to be 100% accurate, are at least trustworthy, and not tainted by agendas like yours are. It’s time you realised that the mainstream news phenomena is a dead duck, and really not worth the bother.

    Thanks to President Trump, who correctly calls you out for the pile of shit you really are, the rubbish you broadcast each, and every day, and which is largely ignored, in favour of more reliable sources on the internet, and whilst the internet continues to survive, it is the preferred source of anything of importance now.

    So fuck off, with your fakery – we don’t believe you any more.

      Spot on Goat Man – But unfortunately the BBC wont f##k off!

      The BBC has been allowed to act the way it does because (just like our current Government). It is just another arm of the Euro establishment which has spent so much time, effort and money trying to control us.

      The wheels have been coming off the Euro project for a very long time. They thought they could control us by using population replacement and changing the demographic and expected that most people would still accept the MSM lies about migration which the MSM have been feeding us. That is why useful idiots like “o Brian” are paid so much as they are much better than Governments at weaving their lies and falsehoods into a “moral imperative” which the naive but compassionate middle classes readily buy into. The MSM/establishment is quite happy to talk about a woman in a burkah who got stared at in the street but not so interested in a muslim “apostate” who has been been beaten up and him and his family having to go into hiding.
      WHOS VALUES ARE MOST IMPORTANT HERE?

      Unfortunately for them, most people in this country still retained a degree of independent thought and could see what mass inward immigration into the UK (consisting of some people who culturally and religiously despise us) is going to mean for our culture and society.
      As we can see after producing the “wrong” result in brexit the BBC/establishment are now panicking and using every trick in the book to rob us of what we voted for. And this is exactly the reason why the Authorities want to control “extremism” on the internet. They were overconfident on the brexit vote and had had their fingers burnt,. And we all know what sort of “extremism” they will be most interested in controlling – certainly not the “Islamic” sort – It will consist of controlling people who object their culture and values being destroyed by a Governments whos loyalties lie in the Hague rather than London.

      They were overconfident on the brexit vote and had had their fingers burnt, In Catalonia the gloves finally came off and we can now see why a “Euro army” has become so important. Putin wont lose any sleep over it but unarmed civilians like us should.

      The one thing that does scare them though is civil unrest – hence the non coverage of the “football lads” thing. I suspect that this is one of the reasons why internet control is so important to the likes of Amber. today it is the undefined “hate speech” to morrow it will be protest marches.

      We know the demise of the EU is certain – and we must not let a morally bankrupt Government stop us. As they up the ante unfortunately so must we. And if our culture and moral values mean anything we must not blink first.

    However, we were told that we would have to cough up the dosh, big time, if we wanted to trade with our European friends. This sounded to me almost like a 21st century form of Dane geld.
    What had me chuckling was was his 28 drinks analogy. Perhaps it was the perfect phrasing for someone who is reputed to like a glass or six.

      If the UK only bought its own drinks, then the analogy that Juncker used would work. But the UK is buying drinks for itself and about a quarter of the rest. When we leave, they might have to buy their own drinks, and they are unhappy.

      I think M. Juncker needs to sit down with a nice bottle of cognac and ponder this. After a few glasses, he might just realise that he has made a fool of himself yet again, but by the time he has finished his bottle, he will have forgotten all about it and be ready to start work for the day.

    “Saudi Arabia’s stated reservations to the Universal Declaration were that its call for freedom of religion violated the precepts of Islam, and that the human rights guaranteed by the Islamic-based law of Saudi Arabia surpassed those secured by the Universal Declaration.”

    In 1984, the Iranian representative to the United Nations, Said Rajaie-Khorassani, said that the Declaration was “a secular understanding of the Judeo-Christian tradition” that could not be implemented by Muslims without conflict with Sharia.”

    “Global powers defy US over Iran nuclear deal” is on the front page of the website. Of course, it’s more deliberate misrepresentation to smear Trump and glorify the globalist establishment. What’s actually happened is Trump has taken a principled stance against the dominant geopolitical agenda. It is, in fact, the US defying global powers.

        Yep, good timing from Trump isn`t it? I sense the BBC will now be telling us that
        a) the Iranians aren`t very good at this sort of thing-“fairy lights” if you will.
        b) if MPs have nothing to hide, then no harm done.
        c) Mere high spirited efforts to check our security for us-we ought to thank them really.
        They`re Muslims you see-learning, bit daft but harmless really.

        Hope the Russians will now compare and contrast re the propaganda value of how Iran are treated, comparend to themselves…not that RT won`t try to back the Iranians as ever.

      I wonder what the ‘hate crime’ and the associated other crimes would be if our government had not imported several millions of ‘immigrants’

      There would be no rise in the ‘right’
      Everybody would have a home having maybe 10 million less here taking up houses.
      No queues at doctors and no waiting times at the nhs.
      20 or less in school classes. (Or fewer?)
      Crime would be massively reduced.
      Tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of schoolgirls would not have been raped and abused.
      Just about everything you can think of giving a better quality of life would be improved.
      We all know this and could fill pages with reasons why life would be far better.

      The only downside would be you might get a slightly less authentic curry.

      So, why do our politicians continue to do this to us against our will.
      Why do we put up with it.

      When are we going to do something about it.
      When (not if) will the fight back (civil war) begin.

      G,
      The issue will be if the OVP have the largest number of seats ,as is likely , and they seek to form a coalition with the FPO , who are vehemently opposed to the Islamification of Austria, how will the EU respond? It’s only about 15 years ago that Brussels imposed sanctions against Austria when the same coalition was trying to form a government. Times have changed , there are now several countries in the EU who oppose Islamification but all of these are being pressured by Brussels . So if the polls are right and the OVP and FPO do seek to form a coalition things might get hot for Brussels. Great fun , the EU has problems a plenty, Brexit, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Catalonia, and Italy looking likely to elect a Eurosceptic government next spring.
      A couple of weeks ago I posted that I thought that despite all its problems the EU would soldier on , creaking badly like the old Hapsburg Empire did , kept afloat by the political will of the European elites and bankrolled by Germany. I asked who could get rid of the EU within ten years and someone on the site said that the EU could destroy itself. If Brussels keeps on seeking to overturn the democratic decision of the people of its member states, then that poster might be proved right.

    Have you thought about how much Brexit payments will cost.

    For each billion that May gives the eu it costs each UK taxpayer about £50.
    This figure is an estimate but I don’t think it’s too far off the mark and I know that some pay little income tax and some pay loads. It’s a rough levelling out to give an idea of the figures.

    With her offer of £20 billion for starters that means about £1,000 each.
    If it gets to 50-60 billion then it’s £2,500 – £3,000 each and so on.

    These huge numbers being bandied about have real consequences to ordinary folk.
    Labour seem to be ready to offer anything and everything the eu demands.

    If we simply leave and go onto wto rules (as we voted for) every taxpayer could get a multi thousand pound rebate instead of giving it to the eu.
    More likely, it could go to paying off our huge deficit.

      First lines of that taster story : see how it kicks at Trump & Brexit
      \\New York, 18th September 2017
      An unusual coalition of figures from the movie and music industries, fantastically wealthy philanthropists, human rights leaders, politicians, and diplomats are pushing against the nationalism and *gloom evident* since Brexit and the U.S. elections to push for bold new goals to combat poverty, health and security.
      While some critics may see the “Goalkeepers” group as what the British call a collection of the “great and good”, it has the explicit backing of the United Nations and meets this week in New York alongside the General Assembly — the annual pinnacle of global diplomacy and the first for President Donald J. Trump.

      Hi Pounce, unable to access your site (as mentioned previously). Assuming this is the same story – the BBC covered this on the Technology News section and maybe here and there a little. I almost missed the story because it had no bells and whistle alarms attached to it. I am thinking of taking a break from all this. As a working model I have the BBC as an activist / propagandist front for many different agendas along a neo-Marxist – Islamists – Feminist – “progressive” – anti-white – anti- traditional English etc line.
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-41580850

      It caught my attention because there was something odd in the headlining. I seem to recall there were links on the World News section, the European section, the Middle-East section and the Technology Section. On different sections they either had the link headlined as “Russian Spies blah blah blah” or had the link headlined as “Israel Spies blah blah blah”. I thought that was odd. I printed the various sectional news pages to pdf files, and filed them for latter viewing / analysis – if I get the time.

        ps: I think on the European news the BBC headlined the link as “Russian spies …” whereas on the middle east news section it was headlined as “Israel spies …”.

        So people interested in European news would be greeted with a negative headline about Russia and people interested in Middle East news would be greeted with a negative headline about Israel.

        The difference in the way the SAME story at the SAME time was headlined within the two different news sections proves something additional was going on than simple reporting. It is consistent with purposely projecting an anti-Russian bias in European news and purposely projecting an anti-Israel bias in Middle-East news.

        I have got various other evidences that show the inner workings of the BBC agendas.

    I am sure others have noticed that the intensity by which the BBC have covered the Harvey Weinstein story outweighs by an order of magnitude the intensity by which they covered the Rochdale Muslim rape gang story of English white girls.

    Notice how little attention the BBC give to stories that really do affect the ordinary English person or ordinary British person. The BBC is just too focused on preparing the grounds for revolutionary social change in England and Britain – it is agenda driven, it gets shriller and shriller every day. They seem to gain confidence in the way politicians such as Theresa May and others have embraced and are pushing the various agendas through legal reform, enquiries, commissioned reports etc.

    Marmalade Dropper

    Being somewhat of a fan of new or unusual verbal coinage and obviously since posting hereabouts also being attuned to journalistic lefty biases, I was fascinated to catch this expression within the BBC News Channel Paper Review.

    It seems White Poppies (in some way in protest to our traditional observation of Remembrance Sunday) will or perhaps may be coming to a school near you.

    Did you drop your marmalade?

    Well, not to worry, we’re told, that’s just typical of the sort of news headline the Sunday Times uses to upset the breakfast peace of ‘their readership’.

    ‘Their readership’ being metropolitan journo code for anyone still backwards enough to leave the Guardian to one side and still be just a tad conservatively-minded (I’m guessing). Makes us sound like retired army majors inhabiting some Agatha Christie plot.

    Of course this isn’t really happening, or so we are rather unconvincingly reassured.

    It’s just that the teacher union the NUT voted for it at conference. And so it sort of might happen. It certainly tells us quite a lot about our teachers these days.

    Worrying sign of the times or just a souped up Marmalade Dropper designed to feed on the prejudices of the conservatively-minded – as our BBC-friendly metro lefties would have us believe?

    Just a little googling tells me this expression surfaced in the 1990s. Which feels about right. A decade we tend to associate with Blairism, the victory of cultural leftism and rubbing the right’s nose in diversity.

    The problem – which the BBC and their pals will never admit – in fact pretend is not happening – is that there are indeed many lefty teachers pushing pacifist anti-patriotic sentiment on our kids in our schools on our tax.

    It’s not just that there is a bit of marmalade dropped every once in while. The Left have thrown the entire pot of marmalade up the wall, chucked the cornflakes all over the carpet and now they’re lobbing softboiled eggs out of the window.

          Absolutely right, Stew. This white poppy poppycock really makes my blood boil. It is a symbol invented by moronic virtue-signallers who just don’t understand the first thing about our national traditions and rituals.

          By wearing a red poppy what we are doing – and it is the only thing we are doing – is recognising the ultimate sacrifice that someone made in the past to preserve our liberty. People were prepared to die defending the freedom that we enjoy today. They did it willingly. Wearing the red poppy is our way of showing our gratitude to them for our not being in concentration camps today. I don’t think these white poppy advocates even understand what a sacrifice is, never mind what the ultimate sacrifice means.

          The white poppy cannot coexist with the red poppy on the same lapel. It would be a contradiction. The white poppy stands, they say, for a commitment to peace, for remembering all the victims of war, and for challenging militarism. That is, for pacifism, for insulting our dead and for undermining our armed forces.

          White poppy wearers mistakenly believe it is only they who want to live a quiet and peaceful life. But we all do. Some of us recognise though that sometimes we have to fight and die for that quiet and peaceful life and that we are eternally grateful to those who have enabled us to enjoy it today. It is a sacred act to wear the red poppy. It is a sacrilege to wear a white poppy. The red poppy is all about honouring our dead heroes. The white poppy is all about narcissistic exhibitionism.

    Lauren Southern draws comparisons between the cover up of Harvey Weinstein and Jimmy Saville. In both cases the truth was known by large numbers, but they kept silent. Why?

    If it is possible to keep large numbers of people silent over these sex scandals it strikes me that the same applies to manipulating news about other events such as the LA shooter, cars that mount the pavement, and bin lorries that crash into crowds. It can be done. Secrets only emerge when it is convenient.

    The end of Jihadist attacks might well be in sight.

    This has nothing directly to do with the BBC, but it draws attention to what I regard as weird shift in the way some people think, and I believe that the BBC and much of the MSM in general is largely responsible for this.

    Taken to see War for the Planet of the Apes yesterday. Wonderful photography, excellent effects (I would expect nothing less these days) but spoilt for me by a mediocre script and a very predictable, schmaltzy story.

    Decided to have a look at the reviews in IMDB. Overall score 7.7, quite high. However, quite a few criticisms which I agree with. I was struck, however, by a fan’s comment with the title: “Don’t understand all the hate”.

    Hate? Look, you bloody fool, these are movie reviews, not the last draft of the Final Solution at Wannsee. What has happened to people? Growing intolerance by some of any opinion, on any subject, which he or she doesn’t agree with. Worrying – sensible discussion on virtually any subject seems to be becoming more difficult, year by year. So much is off limits.

    Ffs both our national broadcasters are now pushing pro-EU, pro-liebour/pro-Islamist left-wing fake news. I’m f******* sick of having no alternative. You have that big wimp Marr on the communist supporting BBC giving Labour an easy ride as always – is Marr SNP or Liebour? Haven’t devided yet- and on Sky ‘Left-wing Views, you have that miserable, smug motor mouth Niall Paterson on presenting a ideologically-charged report on alternatives to capitalism (whilst displaying all the middle class privilege of someone who enjoys the fruits of a neoliberal career and lifestyle). Do these snooty metro-trendy chattering classes not understand what the anti-English Corbyn will bring? Surely they cannot expect Corbyn to be an alternative?

    Finally, I think we all now know why Sky UK got rid of Fox; to silence right-wing views. We are experiencing a Left-wing affront on democracy.

    I watched a bit of Marr earlier. Whenever I see McDonnell or Corbyn, I am reminded of a expression from the late 40’s/50’s –
    “Reds under the bed”. Times don’t really change.

    On another issue, there is a good record of ‘Islamophobia’ Worldwide per country here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamophobic_incidents#United_Kingdom
    I note that there has been 25 PROVEN incidents of violence/property damage between 12th July 2005 and 24th September 2017 in the UK. The list is updated as an when. 25 incidents? Compared with how many islamic terror attacks? But all the Governments efforts (backed no doubt by islamic charity groups) to reduce so-called Islamophobia with preventative legislation or ‘guidance’, is to halt any increase in the 25 incidents. Cock-eyed? I’m not emphasising any ‘tally’ of equivalence but many more people in the UK have been murdered by islamic terrorists during the same period than all the incidents of Islamophobia totalled. We have to take the load but islam doesn’t. Another sign (if one were needed) of the growing imbalance. I sense a growing awareness of the imbalance and a commensurate simmering hatred and I suggest the Government can produce all the legislation and guidance it wants to protect its cult but, eventually, the people will say, loud and clear (echoing a certain Treezer), “enough is enough”.

    The BBC are in a flap about The Sun’s exposure of its Brexit bias.
    https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/4673717/bbcs-hissy-fit-over-brexit-bias-research-proves-it-has-something-to-hide/
    “One newspaper reporter who asked its press office for a statement was even threatened with “Twitter bombs” — a form of online attack — if she dared to quote The Sun’s statistics.”
    Interesting, why are the BBC so confident of being able to attack a journalist through twitter, or any other social media?

    On thinks of the appallingly destructive attacks on Sir Tim Hunt after the BBC ‘wrongly’ accused him of sexism. When I say wrongly, I actually mean they appear to have lied through their collective teeth.
