    I just watched the Londonistan programme on the BBC. They had a feature on the increase of racist attacks
    in London, and it was ,even for Liz Rateef and Assad Ahmeds standards one of the most blatantly biased
    segments on racism i have seen. 90% of it was about how the Muslims have suffered. Never mind the
    fact that over and over again , as their” brothers” are slaughtering men women and children in the capitol
    and screaming out Alahu Akbar. Let’s leave this minor fact aside.
    There has been a 30% rise in antisemitic attacks this year. Where do they come from? Even that paragon of
    virtue Mehdi Hussain has said that is the “dirty little secret ” for Muslims to despise Jews.
    Have you ever walked passed a Jewish school? The security is like Fort Knox. Who are the kids being protected.
    from.? Mr +Mrs Smith? Mr and Mrs Patel?
    The London programme is supposed to be about all the population of London. I don’t care if 75% of the presenters
    are ethnic . But I do care if the the fifth column editors editors through their parrot presenters are allowed to
    present a programme i putting over their own political agenda!

      BBC London News is possibly the most biased arm of the Ministry of Truth. Didn’t a white girl get sexually assaulted three times on one trip in East London the other day? That beggars belief. It is clear where the real hatred is coming from – there is something so utterly foul about sexual assault.

      If people hate you then you might be doing something wrong. Rape and murder are generally not going to go down well with decent people.

        Surely this cannot be true news?
        A 31 year old not being a believer in the EU Empire, that cannot be right, we are constantly told that only old uneducated decrepit racsts do not love the EU and its race to become the United States of Europe under President Junker.

        This doesn’t fit with the narrative!
        I thought it was only the swivel eyed, old, xenophobic, Little Englanders that voted right of centre and questioned the EU’s ultimate dream of creating an ever closer union!
        Good lord.

        The unelected eurocrats won’t like this.Austria could soon be following the UK, leaving the EU. It’s only a matter of time before the eurocrats european dream of a euro superstate is dead in the water.

        Another nail in the EU coffin.

        This isn’t even on the BBC home page – you have to wonder why?

        Going to be interesting to see how he deals with the migrant quotas the EU is trying to impose on every country. The BBC hasn’t mentioned he’s against EU interference and, as the ex-Soviet blocs are finding out to their cost, it’s when you tell the EU ‘no’ that you find how much power they really have over your country.

        The EU groupies will be waiting a long time for the likes of Kurtz to “die off” ax they so charmingly put it

        The fact is most people do not want more immigration. We need a complete stop to it from outside Europe. Something the Greens, “Business” aka the rich, luvvies and “we know best” parties across Europe & the US will just have to get used to.

        Will it affect living standards ? Possibly if the elite focus on refugees rather than rebuilding the economy for the great majority.

        I live in Vienna and work as an English teacher in primary schools. We often have 15-20 (sometimes more) foreign children per class with little to no knowledge of German. Young foreign males congregating in large groups, causing unease wherever they choose to go, with almost no respect for the law! The liberal-left loony policies of the last 10 years has finally turned the people to the right.

        Brexellent news!

    Just a minute, the law may well be ill-conceived and wrongheadedly attempting to get private individuals to do the government’s job for them but it’s surely the illegal immigrants who are FUELLING the trade in fake passports, right?

    It almost sounds as though the BBC’s solution would be to stop any checking of documents – that way there’d be no need to produce fakes?

    Imagine a Corbyn speech
    “I’m glad to welcome a new batch of 100,00 African and East European migrants in the last 3 months
    .. And comrades during those 3 months under this Tory Government the number of people living below the poverty line and earning less than 2/3 average income has ALSO increased by 100,000”

    ID also told us that after Greg Dykes “BBC is hideously white” comment, the BBC grabbed all the BAME they could.
    Then after shouting “diversity” for a few years an outsider observed that instead of being white middle class, the BBC was now white & black middle class.
    ..They hadn’t taken any working class like say from the local Shepard’s Bush area.

      I’d have thought that given the Beeb’s obsession with “diversity” then Crimewatch was their prime programme. When they show the mugshots of the criminals the police would like to question it’s like a line up of enrichers from across the globe. From the Caribbean to Zaire and from Afghanistan to Pakistan, it’s a vibrant and rich picture of multi-cultural Britain.
      However every crime drama, thriller or mystery that the BBC shows constantly promotes the belief that the police is manned (and womaned?) by decent, intelligent, hard working ethnic minorities and the criminal classes are almost exclusively white.
      So perhaps poor old Crimewatch is a bit of an embarrassing contradiction.

      AslSeelt,
      If that’s true, it will be a massive shame because, in the knowledge that (apparently – the public are told) NO statistics are produced showing a perpetrators race, the only ‘rule of thumb’ available to the public is the ‘Wanted Faces’ on Crimewatch. Perhaps that is one reason they are axing the prog? I must confess to writing to the prog producer some 18 months/2 years ago, thanking them for giving the public that rule of thumb in the absence(? – personally, I don’t believe it) of any official stats. I suspect that the stats are unofficially compiled otherwise not to will be a yet further sign of Government mismanagement.

      Yes the BBC are axing Crimewatch despite the increase in rapes and acid attacks. Possibly couldn’t get enough white rapists for their mugshot line ups.
      Meanwhile the Met police have said they are no longer investigating “low level crimes” like burglary that turns people’s worlds upside down. Maybe this is due to being too busy trawling the internet for so called hate crimes-or painting their patrol cars rainbow colours. Or maybe just too busy riding the dodgems!

    BBC R4 Today this morning.

    Some economist claims that Brexit without a trade deal will put up the cost of living by up to £500 and hit the poor hardest. Danish bacon and cheese will go up 50% per WTO terms.

    Utter balls. An independent UK will of course be free to set its own tariff on Danish bacon and cheese: WTO / higher / lower / nil.

    Moreover elimination of free movement will offer HMG the opportunity to throttle excess supply of labour, putting upward pressure on wages. Hence bacon and cheese become more affordable.

    In a separate item, May’s dinner with the Eurocrats was reported. Reporter critical that there had been no progress on “how much the UK will have to pay to leave the European Union”. They never ask why Barnier & Co don’t simply show us the contract under which the UK is obliged to fund future EU expenditure after we’ve left – because there isn’t one!

    Having failed in the run up to the 2016 referendum to convince the electorate that Brexit will be a nightmare, Al Beeb’s strategy seems now to be to convince us that “Brexit without a trade deal” will be a nightmare. Obviously the EU has no intention of agreeing to any reasonable exit deal, and therefore – a few months from now – UK MPs will be offered a vote on either an unreasonable deal or (horror of horrors!) no deal. MPs can then save the day by voting down either / both of them.

    If May had any backbone then she would terminate negotiations with the EU, announce that there will be “no deal” with the EU for the foreseeable future and focus her energies on making the best of the opportunities that that prospect offers. Instead I fear that we are headed towards “Brexit in name only”.

      Quite right.

      It amazed me during the EU Referendum campaign how so many pro-EU campaigners such as Carolyn Fairbairn (CBI), Natalie Bennet & Caroline Lucas (Green Party) and many others, demonstrated that they do not understand trade tariffs and how they are applied in the importing country, not the exporting country. Yet another great reason to vote ‘Leave’.

      Painful stuff wasn’t it?

      The mood was lightened by a lady called vagini
      Or something like that who as a beeboid breathlessly told the Hess girl presenter about how she’d gone out with a man who had a girlfriend who told our vagini that he thought she was “ sexy”,

      A clear case of the Weinstein s. She chose not to report the man – a senior beeboid – until she heard another girl saying he’d said the same .

      Still with me ?

      I really really had a laugh out loud job with this one as it sounded what I suspect the chat in ladies loos are like .

      The man has been reported to al beeb high command and he has probably been sentenced to producing comedy on 4extra – a cruel and unusual punishment for anyone .

      Ps – had to look up vagini to see if she was worth the punishment – in my opinion – not – sorry darling . ( I’m just sooo omg sexist )

      It amazes me that when faced with international terrorism we are encouraged to evoke the blitz spirit, but when faced with potential increases in the cost of living we are encouraged to cave in and run back to the arms of the EU. Incredible!

      I do agree the powers that be may try to press for a second referendum. There’s a few problems with this though.

      1. The public knows the EU has ‘form’ in re-running elections when it doesn’t like the results. They’ve done this before and it seems to be common knowledge on social media. It will therefore be harder to do it again.
      2. Any second referendum risks getting another ‘out’ vote from the British people, unless there is some attempt to pull the wool over our eyes with dodgy wording. Any text for the question will however need to be released to the media first, so any attempt at soft-soap will be spotted.
      3. When the EU and national governments have re-run votes to get the results they wanted, this was done at a time when the EU was in the ascendant (eg, in the case of the Republic of Ireland) and the future looked rosey. Everybody (who is not a EU-phile zealot) knows that all is not well in the EU now, as they have seen just how difficult and spiteful they can be.
      4. Although UKIP is struggling at the moment, a second referendum may be the kick it requires to get it moving again, and that is one thing the powers that be do not want at any cost.

        Cranmer – there will be no second referendum. Popular votes are just too unpredictable nowadays and therefore risky: Brexit, Trump, General Election 2017 outcomes all defied the experts’ predictions.

        More likely there will be a parliamentary vote to ratify any eventual deal (or no-deal). That will be the Remainers’ Last Stand – and Al Beeb have already started the propaganda campaign in anticipation.

    In the next breath there will have some ROP ‘activist’ on to hold hands with and pat on the back.

    How can we solve problems if there is no free speech? We must not hate people who make our children suicidal as that would be ‘hate speech.’ If you can’t hate people like that then you’re in deep trouble.

        The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) gives the following guidance to prosecutors:
        In the absence of a precise legal definition of hostility, consideration
        should be given to ordinary dictionary definitions, which include

          Seems to me the muzzies will avoid any threat of prosecution for, “hostility” by applying taqiyya in their dealings with us. Much as it goes against the grain for most Brits to lie, perhaps we have to join the muzzies and feign friendliness? What happens if, hypothetically, I smile warmly whilst saying to a muzzie, “I want you to leave my country and go back where you will be comfortable with beheading, spitting at dhimmis/kafirs, multiple wives, praying all day and paedophilia et al.?”
          How will the CPS deal with that scenario?

    Following on from Tom_Kenny’s post above, the 8am News on BBC R4 is the claim (again about a No-deal Hard Brexit) is that poor households would be hit hardest by ‘tariffs’ because they consume more imported goods. Good old BBC, turning economics and real life completely upside down to try and frustrate or overturn Brexit.

    BBC, please note:
    1. The poorest households will be hit hardest by any inflation, however caused, whether by tariffs (such as those imposed on us by the EU – which will be removed when we leave), currency changes or any UK self-imposed tax & costs increasing by our own Government.
    2. Wealthy people & high earners consume much more than poorer households, and will be much harder hit, by any tariffs that OUR government chooses to place on imports after we have left the EU but they have the spare disposable income and/or wealth to cope. Or not. Remind me please, media-savvy BBC, the amounts some ‘well-known’ celebrity recent bankrupts were spending on cars, food, wine, clothes, travel, etc?

      BB, same here in Sunderland.

      Someone was on the radio this morning saying the price of the place they bought had fallen by 30%
      Nobody pointed out that the price of the property they were upgrading to had also fallen by 30% making them better off if they sold to upgrade.

      Also, in Sunderland the population is falling. It’s gone down by more that 20,000 in the last few years yet the council is embarking on a big building program. Many Farmers fields are being built on.
      They have just built a huge block of office spaces in the town centre yet half the shops are empty and hundreds of office spaces are vacant.
      Still, a few very very rich people will be a little bit more richer.

If our government f*$”) this up with the collusion of the main European powers then let that be a warning to the rest of the malcontents, the ballot box may not be the answer.

      Meanwhile, farmers in the UK are paid to lie in bed while their massive industrial wind turbines drip money into their back pocket. Or they stay on the farm until they are 90 pocketing the Basic Payment. Money to do absolutely nothing. The next generation of farmers is sitting there in their middle 60’s wondering when their turn will come.

      Me? I’m a farmer’s son.

        As a farmer’s wife, I suggest that you must be a second son, who hasn’t inherited the farm. Bitter?you? The stress this year trying to bring in harvest when it rained every day for the last half of July, all of August and most of September deserves some recompense.

    December 2017 is going to be an interesting month … Mega Mosque opens in London’s Jewish Quarters and Amber Rudd’s Hate Crime Hub becomes activated.

    “A new Shia Muslim mega mosque and Islamic center – measuring over 3,500 square meters and with room for 3,000 people — has opened in Golders Green, one of only two largely Jewish areas in London. The Shia Muslim religious center, Hussainiyat Al-Rasool Al-Adham, owns the mosque.” {gatestoneinstitute 17oct2017}
    “To place a large Muslim institution in the heart of one of London’s only two Jewish communities is a highly dangerous undertaking and one that can only result in violence and terrorism.”

    Online hate crime is completely unacceptable. What is illegal offline is illegal online, and those who commit these cowardly crimes should be met with the full force of the law. – Amber Rudd {gov.uk 08oct2017}

    When the anti-Trump media released that ‘voice recording’ of him saying that “woman allow you to do anything to them when you are famous”, the media in the US and UK lost its sh!t in rage. There was mass protests and marches all over the US and the UK. The biggest voices in condemnation were those in Hollywood, especially the actresses and actors who used every moment they could to attack Trump, using Oscar speeches and leading the marches that just attacked Trump for being the worst kind of man possible…..we saw all this Trump hatred everyday on every media channel, who despised Trump even more than Hollywood did.

    Below is an article on the words of a famous producer and screenwriter that actually works for the company that Weinstein owned, clearly stating they all knew….and what did they do about it?…. Absolutley nothing.

    http://www.dailywire.com/news/22343/miramax-insiders-scathing-facebook-post-goes-viral-chase-stephens

    Where are the protests from the left against Hollywood? Where are the marches from the left against the actually rapes (and not just words) carried out by Weinstein? Where are the marches from the left, the media reports, the TV shows, the discussions in Parliment, about this clear industry wide coverup of rapes, abuse, discrimination, victimisation, and its acceptance by the most vocal social justice warriors on earth, when vunerable women needed them most? Where is the attacks from the left and its media brothers and sisters on the news networks in the US that actually knew about these rapes and did nothing for over a decade?

    At long last the vile, disgusting vermin that act like they are people that we all should look up to have exposed themselves for what they truly are, and the BBC whos Job it is to expose and hold to account the elites like Hollywood are going to do fuck all about it. Even today, they are still attacking Trump and defending or pretending this isnt happening. The BBC are traitors and make me despise them more each day (and I never thought that could be possible)

      It can’t be said often enough that at no point on that tape did Trump say that he’d done any such thing. In fact, at that point he told a story against himself; about buying presents for a woman he thought was willing, but when he asked she said no. He accepted her decision and decided he was an idiot for misreading the signals.

      The BBC were very careful to only broadcast isolated phrases from the tape, so that nothing was in context; otherwise the smear wouldn’t have worked. The full tape was on Youtube and showed him in a positive light.

        You are quite right. Trump was telling a story against himself, namely that he failed to seduce a woman, not something the likes of Bill Clinton or Harvey Weinstein would ever tell. His other remarks were about how fame meant that groupies threw themselves at him, hardly a new phenomenon. He wasn’t boasting about sexually assaulting women. If you ever see the full tape, you will see that within a few seconds, Trump is introduced to an attractive TV hostess, and he is extremely polite and gentlemanly in her company. I dread to think what the likes of Clinton or Weinstein would have done.

        I would love to know who had this tape and kept it for over ten years until they could use it against Trump. Maybe we will find out, all the dirty secrets seem to be tumbling out now.

      It was shameless how the Beeb kept playing the Trump recording over and over whilst ignoring the Democrat hacked emails. Trump actually came across as clearly loving women. The mock horror was ridiculous. What, a rich and powerful man might be attractive to women? O the horror!

      This is far worse: systematic actual abuse of women over decades rather than a flippant comment made in private, the like of which most men make all the time.

      You’re right – just when you think you can’t think any lower of them, they go lower. Why aren’t they marching about this with salivating Beeb reporters amongst the protestors? Just like they support gay rights except where Islam is involved.

    RE: Hate crime.

    The Manchester attack was not registered as a hate crime as it was directed against multiple races/beliefs and thus circumvented the government’s statistical techniques. The Finsbury Park attack was considered a hate crime, however. Apparently ‘British values’ do not come under one of their protected groups!

    I would say that the murder of 19 – many of them children -counts as more hatred than all the other 80,000 ‘incidents’ combined. You could even throw in another billion incidents of calling people names and it would not equate to a single life lost.

    Of course you have to read the actual government report to get this information. The Beeb spin is that the Third Reich is imminent due to Brexit.

    Back-to-work Kamal Ahmed has managed to put his foot in it again by claiming on WatO (BBC R4 1pm) that inflation eventually disappears. No, Kamal, once inflation is in the economy it stays in the economy. The only thing that will remove it is the equivalent amount of deflation. It is true that a specific cause of a spike falls out of the annualised headline rate within twelve months but that is not what you, in effect, said.

      “The BBC have headlined a ‘rise’ in hate crimes when the trend in number of ‘actual’ prosecutions has fallen. Disgusting reporting yet again.”

      Surely the correct conclusion is that there has been an increase in the number of fake “hate crimes” reported to police. Where the police investigation shows any evidence that a “hate crime” has been committed a prosecution will follow – the CPS are even more politically correct than the police. The lack of a prosecution implies a lack of evidence and therefore a malicious report. The BBC, of course, encouraged such reporting.

      I should point out that my reasoning of complaint – investigation – evidence – prosecution only applies when the complaint is of something that the police will investigate and the CPS will prosecute; like “hate crime”. It is much less likely to happen for other crimes which the CPS see as less serious; such as the sadistic gang rape of white children by non-white rapists.

    No, that’s not my verdict on the 8 minutes of BBC daytime soap Doctors which I caught tuning in early for the 2 o’clock news.
    By the way, that was probably the most cartoony and stiltedly acted bits of badly drawn PC-laden public sector virtue signalling agit prop drama since The League of Gentlemen introduced us to Legs Akimbo.

    That opening expression of satisfaction belonged to BBC News Channel anchor Simon McCoy.

    He was most amused and pleased by a badly drawn cartoon just tweeted by arch-pro-Bussels agitator George Osborne former dud Chancellor now remoaning for Britain from his freebie throwaway metropolitan liberal newsheet the Evening Standard. Osborne has a morbid hatred of PM Theresa May and a sordid love for the EU. His twin obsessions ought perhaps to worry the neutral observer – which our Simon and his employer the BBC apparently are not.

    Just me or does Osborne’s attitude to May not remind you of that sitcom about the two camp Scots airline stewards?

    You know, the Alan Cuming character’s love/hate relationship to ‘Hitler in tights’ Shona Spirtle. The one where she beat him to be the Face of Air Scotia and his plaintive “It should have been me!!!!” That’s George Osborne to a tee.

    Norman Smith the BBC’S assistant political editor (No chance of getting the top job, wrong sex and wrong surname)
    made his own views known on the BBC on the 1PM news today. He was questioned about the chances of another
    Brexit referendum and he let it slip by saying ” hopefully.” Poor Norman, you are of course entitled to your
    own opinion, BUT. But maybe it would be very interesting to hear the “neutral ” presenters and reporters
    on the BBC and all the TV media blurt out their personnel opinions like Peter Finch did in the film
    ” Broadcast News.” You may say ” Foscari they already do, they ca’nt hide their left wing leanings ,or
    more to the point their Editors Trotkyist leanings.”

      Foscari,
      Leanings? I think they’ve fallen over.

      The BBC wil be applauded by the elite and perhaps awarded something from the EU like the George Cross was to Malta in the Second World War, for their outstandingly biased journalism. Sadly I think all the signs are that either there will be a second referendum or a vote in the HoC. I don’t think that we will ever leave in any meaningful sense. Democracy will have been crushed by the elite and the people manipulated into remaining.
      This is very disappointing but in my view being in or out of the EU is nowhere near as important as resisting Islamification. I am unsure whether being in or out of the EU is better in terms of opposing Islam. Mad Merkel’s open door policy , which she arrogantly assumed would be adopted by all EU member states , indicated that remaining in the EU came with a heavy dose of enrichment , but now that we see real resistance to Islamification from the eastern countries and their electorates , perhaps that indication was premature . If more countries move to the cultural right and begin a stout defence of European culture and values then may be the EU as a whole can resist Islam. Also the fact that Corbyn and his gang of communists and SJW Could be elected by the crazy British voters also makes me wonder. If Labour achieve power then they will open our borders and millions of third worlders will arrive. If we were inside an anti Islamic EU would that be allowed to happen.

        The parts of the EU that don’t want Muslim immigrants are dependent on the cash from those parts of the EU whose leaders enthusiastically import Muslims.

        No Muslims, no money.

          Jim,
          A good point. But perhaps as anti Islam political parties gain ground they will encourage voters in other countries to vote in a similar way. There already are strong anti Islam parties in Germany, France, Holland, Sweden . I ‘m thinking that if the Austrian result had occurred before the German election the AfD would have got more votes. If these parties achieve power in the future then the EU will de facto become anti Islam. Of course the likes of the BBC and the political elites will try and prevent this and have already resorted to state power and fake news to suppress such movements. But their arguments are wearing thin and using state power in this way can fuel resentment . What is clear is that in the UK we are miles behind Eastern Europe in combatting Islamification and so need to look east for leadership and example.

    To name just three – we have the boss of JML, Weatherspoons and Dyson – in businesses they run and in which they achieve, create jobs and profit by their own hard work and talent.

    On the other hand we have failed, bitter politicians and cosseted bbc scribblers.

      “I just don’t know who to believe !”

      Neither!

      You should be listening instead to actors, preferably ones that are popular on the award circuit, and rock stars, the older and more addled and grizzled the better. They know everything.

      “Islington, in north London, was rated the worst place for women to live {bbc.co.uk 12sep2017}.”
      “Islington performed near the bottom of the distribution on wellbeing, environmental quality, housing affordability and safety. … Housing in Islington was among the least affordable in Britain.”

      . . .
      “Jeremy Corbyn‏ @jeremycorbyn “Excessive rents & a lack of affordable housing are ruining the lives of young people. @UKLabour will cap rents to provide homes #ForTheMany.” {twitter jun2017}”

      – Islington’s MP for 34 years has consistently been Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn, BBC fail to mention MP who has been there for 34 years. A slight omission by the BBC? Tory bias?

    He’s a naturalist, TV presenter, author, photographer & more.
    He is also autistic. ”

    Is that why he gets a free pass on his activism ?

      Probably more to do with his ‘animal rights’ activism and ‘shooting grouse must be banned’

      Looks like a perfectly reasonable person, as do his audience. sarc.
