      Heard on the BBC yesterday by a Remainer (don’t know who it was) ” If Britain is not expected to pay for leaving the EEC then everyone would leave.” !!!!!!! Did not hear it repeated but whoever it was probably regretted it and I am sure will NOT be invited to comment again.

    Page 3 of The Times today is all about an enterprising Azad Chaiwala who has set up a polygamous matchmaking website for Muslims which has over 100,000 users.

    The noble Beeb always rally to the feminist cause: sexual harrassment, ‘unequal pay’ and sexism in sport being just a few of the countless causes they have championed.

    At the heart of romantic love is exclusivity; the marriage vows expressly mention the exclusion of all others. Anyone who has experienced sexual jealousy will avow that it is the most terrible, terrible thing. What could be more utterly degrading to women than to be a second or third wife?

    Surely the feminist sisters at the Beeb will be all over this? Can’t we expect one of their trademark SJW campaigns to have the website shut down immediately?

    Alas, the silence from the BBC is deafening. What vile hypocrites they are. I’m sure the new female Dr Who would struggle to do her job if she had to ask permission from a man before slaying any baddies.

      If one muslim guy has four wives, does it follow that three muslim guys are going to be without a wife? Maybe that is why they are so keen on infidel girls.

        I’m more concerned at the number of offspring conceived by four wives and the amount of child benefit being paid. Like rabbits (literally) it doesn’t take long for 4 wives to produce say 4 kids each – 16 per household; 20 households in a street = 320 kids in one street (possibly less probably more). The maths are staggering – whole Islamic towns created in less than a generation. Does no-one see this ???? and how it can affect the demographics of this country ?

          Brissles,
          Sometimes, in public I see young children, English, Welsh, Scottish, Irish. I look at them & I think ‘you poor kids, what will your world be like when you are grown up? What is this generation leaving behind for you? What horrors will you have to face? It’s stomach-churning. How the white boys are being demoralised. And the little girls! What will happen to them? Legalised sex-slavery? Forced baby-machines? The future looks bleak. I am not without hope that the tide can be turned but it’s an uphill struggle we face.

            Of late, I have had to do all my travels by taxi and I have noticed that when the driver is a Muslim he/they always seems to have a kinda smirky smile on their face as if “he knows” what Britain will be like many decades ahead! Thinking to himself: look at all these white males and females – tipping me, little knowing that all their tips are going towards my new house in Pakistan, Bradford, even while the new benefits my wives/and adult daoghters receive will pay off my 3rd car in 2 years time.

I dread to think what will happen to them, or what will be left of Britain. Perhaps the best we can hope for is some sort of partition. It happened in India, it may well come to that here.

          Brissles,
          The Government had better get that right before starting building their ‘Affordable Homes’ – I guess 16 bed homes is not within their contemplation yet. But there, they’ve got all the numbers wrong to date with regard to immigration.
          Perhaps they can design their ‘Affordable Homes’ on the basis that one can quickly be converted into two or more to satisfy the polygamists amongst us?

          • BRISSLES says:

            G… I agree. Affordable Homes are another contentious issue. Affordable homes for whom ? that’s the question. I’ve read nothing where property developers or Buy to Let investors (China ??) will be unable to make a killing on these potential homes. With that and more and more migrants haunting the auction rooms, the situation we are currently in is one that will never change. Like pouring money into the NHS doesn’t make an iota of difference, building a few thousand houses is like putting a sticking plaster on a broken leg. Every housing estate being thrown up means another week’s wait at the local GP surgery. Further, it doesn’t matter what time of the day you go out in the car (unless its 3 am), the roads are increasingly clogged up, – who wants to go anywhere now, particularly Bank Holidays. A day at the seaside ? forget it.

            Even if the drawbridge was pulled up tomorrow with not another soul allowed in, this country is vastly overpopulated for the current infrastructure. If its racist to say that had we not opened the doors at the beginning of the Millennium to the world and his (her) wife, our daily life and transport would be so much better, then so be it .

              Brissles – The end game to this project of mass immigration, from the fifties onwards, is that Britain’s (and Europe’s) majority population becomes a huge racial mishmash. There will eventually be no majority homogenous population in Britain who are ethnically British who stand together and will be able to stop what will happen, they haven’t woken up here yet (still voting for the same Lib-Lab-Con-etc) and by the time they do it shall be too late anyway; far, far beyond resolution via the ballot box.

              The population of the country (countries) will be divided along numerous racial and religious lines and so in continual hostility amongst itself; distracted by bread and circuses like sportsball; pornography and trinkets from Amazon – so as to be more easily controlled by an incredibly wealthy elite, powerfully protected from the majority beneath them.

                  That’s why we have some of the strictest gun laws in the world, which give the state a monopoly on the use of armed force and why there is this unceasing attempt in America by their elite to try to restrict gun ownership there.

                  The Founding Fathers knew what they were about, in giving the citizens of the U.S. the “Right” to defend themselves from government tyranny by dint of arms; if necessary.

                    No point blaming politicians, claiming that they are “protected”. Every government we’ve had for some considerable time has been elected by apathetic voters who’ve either voted for parties they don’t particularly like out of habit, out of peer pressure (rosette on donkey syndrome), out of a totally hypocritical desire to appear “nice”, or they haven’t voted at all. Democracy can be a powerful force, but not if people take it for granted as a system that “just works”, without any intelligent input from the electorate. It needs to be used.

                    If people had made some attempt to break the complacency of the main parties by voting for minor parties occasionally, we might have a government now that comes closer to what people want. UKIP and Farage gave us a Brexit vote with no more than one MP – and he was largely irrelevant.

                    I’ve actually voted BNP in the past – now there’s a confession – not because I wanted them in government because that was never on the cards – but because I believed that the existing parties needed to understand that anything was possible, no matter how abhorrent it might have appeared to them. The almost complete suppression of news of the Football Lads Alliance march confirms where their fears lie. Avoiding alcohol, flags and chants was a master-stroke and displayed a degree of self control that I wouldn’t have believed possible.

                    We’ve got exactly what we voted for and I don’t believe for one second that a rag bag of ill disciplined macho jerks with guns would make a difference. Probably end up killing each other. A military takeover, however, might stand a chance but I can’t see it happening.

                    The government needs to fear the election of an “extreme right wing” (as it would view it) party before it will listen, then self interest would prevail and work in our favour. Unfortunately it will probably take an atrocity on a scale we haven’t experienced before to make this happen.

                      Do you really believe a group of people, the members of which can be voted out every four years (or less) are part of the elite?

                      No way! The people who really run things and seek to shape the future, aren’t given power in temporary increments by the likes of us; they’ve ruthlessly attained the power they’ve got and would be equally ruthless in keeping it.

                      Yes, the likes of Blair/Drunky etc are merely the more public manifestation of a seamless exercise of power decade after decade. They are important to be sure but they also realise that they are ultimately expendable.

                      The real power will be held by faceless and nameless people who may well be sitting next to you on the train commuting to their London etc office.

                      This final scene from “A Very British Coup” rather exemplifies the point (ignore the “left”/”right” paradigm of this fine drama, that’s only to make us believe there’s a choice).

                      Wild cards are occasionally thrown up of course, Hitler comes to mind……

                Brissels, I think we were able to cope with the immigration as it was until the 1997 Government when the odious Blaire deliberately opened the doors to what he thought to be prospective Labour voters who would ensure a Labour administration for years to come. That was initially a likely scenario, but did he have any idea regarding the cultural upheaval it would cause and the real danger of a medieval regime being forced on this country when the Muslim population is in the majority?

        Do you think that this is the cause of the propensity of Muslim to rape girls? If one Muslim chap has four wives then about three don’t have a wife , so how do they satisfy their urges? Seems a very bad idea to me.

          Doublethinker
          It’s a common phenomenon in tribal societies. The Rape of the Sabine Women is a classic example from Livy. The women were not actually raped in the Muslim way. The neighbouring Sabines very sensibly had refused to let their women marry Romans as they feared the Romans would outbreed them and so eventually be able to dominate them. The Sabine Women were captured at a feast the Romans organised for that purpose. Livy says the Sabine women were not forced to marry but offered various rights and inducements. Of course the usual tribal logic is that women who are no longer virgins or thought not to be virgins are no longer marriageable and so worthless. Under these circumstances the Sabine women probably had no choice but to remain with the Romans as their wives. What an enrichment Islamic culture has been for Britain! Its customs are more barbaric than those of the Romans in the time of Romulus and Remus.

      Where polygamy is illegal, we advise you still have a ceremony in which your families and the religious community recognise the relationship as a marriage, even though it may not be legally registered. Such a ceremony as a nikah in your local mosque.

      It is also important to be aware that when a marriage is not registered there would be no legal ties between the man and woman. {www.secondwife.com}

Remember, she won the popular vote, so sales of up to 65 million are expected! Ignore the ridiculous rumour that 3 million were dead at the time of voting!
    Good News #2: The Trump playbook is doing so badly that it is on sale now! Half-price special offer for Lab/LibDems/SNP/Wet Tory members only! Just 10 pounds plus 3.95 p&p. Grab a copy!*

    Apparently the BBC have taken themselves to task for not challenging ‘climate sceptic’ Lord Lawson’s spurious claim that ‘….world temperatures have shown a slight drop.’ The Met Office confirm that this statement is incorrect and that temperatures have, in fact, risen.

      No rather propagandists have come back for a second bite of the cherry and created a propaganda event.
      Cos shortly after his R4 Today Lawson corrected himself.
      “If anything temperatures are falling now” he’d first said. One day later he said the makers of that particular data set have said that it doesn’t show temperature is falling.
      There is irony
      however now that La Nina seems certain it does seem likely that soon global temperatures for each month should be lower than they were under last years El Nino.

      The long term trend over 20 years should show a rise, but at a rate so small that its close to measurement error of the instruments/calculations.
      And is not in proportion to atmospheric CO2.

        Yes indeed, I have the fall in temperature, as would be expected from an El Nino. The Hiatus, Pause or Peak, Hale magnetic cycle is from 1997 to 2019. The one before that was a Global warming period, and according to Solar Astronomers, the next one is a Global cooling period. From past correlations, the decline is estimated to be 1.2 Kelvin, towards a mini-ice age, but lags mean that the cooling is not due to be noticeable until the Winter of 2018-2019 at the earliest.

        Lawson has put his own money into all this and will know a lot more about climate change that a World Bank robber, or a vague economist.
        Some experts opinions are clearly what the BBC like-whereas others seem to make them sad.

      I don’t see how 400/month across a whole country is an overwhelming number, police forces would have the resources for the handful in their area. And it is arguable that rather that going to full trial, the authorities should suspend the prosecution is the perp completes the proper psychiatry programme.

    Respect Words: Ethical Journalism Against Hate Speech” is a collaborative project that has been undertaken by media organizations in eight European countries – Austria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Slovenia, and Spain. Supported by the Rights and Citizenship Programme of the European Union, it seeks, according to its website, to help journalists, in this era of growing “Islamophobia,” to “rethink” the way they address “issues related to migratory processes, ethnic and religious minorities.” It sounds benign enough: “rethink.” But do not kid yourself: when these EU-funded activists call for “rethinking,” what they are really doing is endorsing self-censorship. {gatestoneinstitute 25oct2017}

    ‘You haven’t a real appreciation of Newspeak, Winston,’ he said almost sadly. ‘Even when you write it you’re still thinking in Oldspeak. I’ve read some of those pieces that you write in The Times occasionally. They’re good enough, but they’re translations. In your heart you’d prefer to stick to Oldspeak, with all its vagueness and its useless shades of meaning. You don’t grasp the beauty of the destruction of words. Do you know that Newspeak is the only language in the world whose vocabulary gets smaller every year?’

    Winston did know that, of course. He smiled, sympathetically he hoped, not trusting himself to speak. Syme bit off another fragment of the dark-coloured bread, chewed it briefly, and went on:

    ‘Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it.

        1. Islam asks for one simple thing. Islam asks for everything – finance, religion, police, morals, schools, law, food, science, clothes, art and your body to be Islamic.

        2. Islam only has two problems – Muhammed and Mohammed. Once the first problem has been solved then the second one can be solved easily.

        3. Islam offers three things. In the Koran it offers Peace, War and then a Continuation of War. In your life Islam wants you to subjugate yourself, subjugate your family and then subjugate everyone else.

        If you like ‘1984’ may I also suggest ‘The History Man’ by Malcolm Bradbury. It’s not very well known nowadays but it’s quite relevant to today’s society. It’s about a radical 1970s university academic who bullies and humiliates anyone who doesn’t agree with his left wing politics. Bradbury sets out to show how such people got into academia and took it over. Here is a clip from the BBC TV adaptation.

      ‘Do you know that Newspeak is the only language in the world whose vocabulary gets smaller every year?’

      Notice how although the English vocabulary has more words than other modern languages and thousands of adverbs to choose from, we are now fed “super”. Super rich, super poor, super cool, super big, super poor. People cannot be incredibly wealthy, staggeringly beautiful – just super rich and super beautiful. Not greatly excited, or awaiting an event with anticipation; just super excited.

      On the other hand it is easy to spot group think. Those in the group mimic each others choice of words. By the same token, unless you use those approved words, you are outside the group and ostracised.

    What’s wrong with that headline ?

    In their sample they’ll have women who worked 40 years and others who have only one year.
    The yeses from older women will be much more.
    #2 Race/gender activists fallacy; instead of treating people as individuals they immediately act sexist by dividing data by sex . Because I am a small pretty man I’ve been abused by women and men, whereas some ugly big strong woman may not have been abused at all.
    #3 Any survey that asks you to self define in “feelings” is not proper stats anyway.

    Perhaps this post is for a thread that appeared a few days ago but thinking about the reaction to the BBC Drama series , Gunpowder. The aim of the corporation was to clearly show Protestant England as the villain of the piece and the oppressors of the Catholics. The inclusion of the torture scenes was designed to shock and make viewers feel that the English were particularly cruel . Of course there was no attempt to contextualise and provide a balanced view that this torture was exceptional, that the Catholics had within living memory burnt hundreds of English protestants at the stake and that the Spanish Inquisition was far and away the biggest user of torture in Europe. No these facts were conveniently overlooked to deny the viewer perspective.
    Also one thing that I think everyone can agree on , and in particular the BBC , is that use of this torture and similar tortures has no place in modern society. How strange then that the BBC daily champions the cause of Islam where use of similar tortures for not being a Muslim occur on a daily basis in the 21st century. Can the BBC explain their stance?

        So, for balance, shouldn’t that be “Speaking to Emma Barnett on the PROEURO BBC Radio 5 Live”?

        BBC bias noted- “Rees-Mogg also took aim at the BBC for presenting an unbalanced view of Britain’s prospects outside the EU. “The BBC always wants to blame things on Brexit. I’m not saying this is a conspiracy, I’m saying it is a fact of life,” he said.”

        Taffman,
        I find the woman May, weak and pathetic, but spectre of Prime Minister Corbyn worries me more.

        I think it’s best to get Brexit done and dusted then the Mogginator can be our next PM.

        If May goes there could be another election.

      It’s great how she starts mimicking his grandiose way of speaking: “Were you privy to her words.”

      All cultures are equal? Who would not want their daughter to bring home a man with his level of education and elocution? Rather that than some rapper who makes songs about stamping on people’s face. Of course the Beeb tries to push the latter on us.

      Go Mogg! What a nasty sounding woman, obviously out of her depth.
      One thing I have noticed in several interviews is that Mr Rees-Mogg doesn’t seem to say he would not serve in the cabinet. I don’t think he has said ‘I will not serve in the cabinet’ but several times has said ‘it’s not going to happen’. I wonder if that’s so that in future he can still serve? I don’t think he will be disloyal to Mrs May – because I think he is a man of honour – but he has not ruled out the possibility of a cabinet post if offered it, nor of standing for leader should Mrs May step down.

    The hospital is in not just ‘special’ measures but extreme measures. Having lost numerous services, constant waiting times fines, and a Maternity Unit condemned by the CQC and fined £88,000 for H&S breaches.
    Assuredly it is worse than when he arrived but he’s been coining around £350,000 (you know, we have to pay top money to get the best people) to make his “considerable progress”. I guess he’ll survive somehow? There are Food-Banks.

I like to picture him on the toilet laughing to himself as he unleashes hell, correcting media distortions and forcing issues into the open our cowardly leaders like to ignore. He is fantastic, a genuine change, unlike that phony crap we were promised from the likes of Blair and Obama.

      You obviously have a colossal advantage applying if you are black and have the grades. They seem to gloss over the crucial fact that certain communities do not have an overly positive attitude towards schoolwork. There is nothing more frustrating as a teacher when a child has no motivation and actually basks in the high status of having no respect for teachers.

        ‘Some say’ that ‘boys of colour’ suffer at school because their culture/genes lead them to be boisterous, which is seen as ‘badly behaved’ by the ‘hideously white’ teachers that haven’t had the ‘training’, (surely not?).

        Around here we have a few bushy-haired hybrids. Walking along the main road to the shops I saw a group of ‘white’ children on the other side with one of these hybrids. Suddenly he shot across the road, I thought in persuit of a small ball. But then he raced back, straight through a line of cars driving at a nominal 30 mph and closely spaced. I don’t think the driver of the middle car even realised what had happened before he regained the pavement. Moments later he made a return journey but this time jumped over the three-foot wall to the playing field. Well its three-foot on the road side but ten-foot on the field side!

        After a minute or two the other kids called out, “If you are still there we are going to ____”. Darwin in action? Unfortunately the local girls seem to be banging out these hybrids at quite a rate. Perhaps if they survive they might become the new explorers and entrepreneurs.

    Labour racism mentioned
    ‘I as black woman spoke at Conservative conference, then my Labour friends said I’d betrayed them’
    ie ‘Labour says BAME **owe** them’

    \\She chose the Conservative conference of 2010 to make a platform speech which attacked well-meaning liberals for ruining the education chances of many from low-income and ethnic minority backgrounds. Revealing herself to be a supporter of the new Conservative-led government, she felt ostracised by the state education system and has struggled for years to found her own free school.

    Having established the Michaela Community School in north London, she is able to put her radical ideas into practice there, leading some to dub it the ‘Strictest school in Britain’.//

    There is no mention on the BBC about the goings on in Golders Green where a proposal to build an enormous Mosque in the middle of a Jewish area has brought fury from the residents there.

    There is no mention that the council has been deleting peoples objections to the planning application (illegal) on the grounds they are ‘inappropriate’ or contain ‘hate speech’. Barnet council which is responsible happens to be the centre left wing Conservatives, and in response a petition of over 5000 signatures has been obtained.

    As if this wasn’t enough a few self destructive Jews in the media (Even Jews have problems with liberals who lie in the media) have called them ‘Islamofauxbik’ and ‘bigotted’.

    https://www.thejc.com/comment/comment/residents-know-there-is-no-place-for-bigotry-over-golders-green-mosque-1.446141

    Only when the area has been successfully cleansed of all Jews will the Jewish Chronicle be happy, depriving itself of sales and killing itself in the process. liberalism is the real dead end.

    On Tuesday, the Times of Israel reported that opponents of plans to turn Golders Green Hippodrome into an Islamic centre “showered derision on the Jewish press” at a recent “town hall” meeting, after community media outlets published a string of articles denouncing objections to the mosque as “racist” and “Islamophobic”.

    “There is nothing fascist about wanting to stand up for the amenities of your area,” argued keynote speaker at the event, Gavin Boby, who described the proposed mosque in Golders Green as “the biggest threat to the sense of home for Jews since Cable Street”.

    Pronouncing the Quran to be “more anti-Semitic than [Adolf Hitler’s] Mein Kampf”, the self-described “mosque-buster” told audience members: “If the Jewish population are driven out of Golders Green they probably won’t come back when we make this area safe for them. I don’t care if this is called fascist, people need to know the truth.”

      It might work out.

      In Belgium and France they found that by having the army guard kiddies’ nurseries the Islamists found it more difficult to butcher Jewish French and Belgian children. I guess it just involves people adapting to a society which sees no problem in building a Mosque in a Jewish area.

      It’s moronic. How can it possibly be the fault of white racism if Indians do better than whites? The ‘race audit’ had proved what nonsense the idea of society being racist is, because white boys perform worse than almost any group.

      This idea that negative outcomes are never the fault of the culture is ridiculous. It robs people of their agency. Lammy will be telling kids in his constituency that the problem is a racist society, so maybe they won’t get their heads down at school as it is not their fault and the odds are stacked against them anyway. This refusal to take any responsibility is so toxic. We never see Chinese kids getting stabbed in gang violence; they have an excellent work ethic, which is key to children achieving.

      Honestly, what more could we possibly to do help minorities? We already openly discriminate against the indigenous population.

    I was thinking of going to see The Death Of Stalin, a ‘comedy’ directed by BBC favourite Armando Iannucci.

    Just before I booked I checked the trailer. Lots of ‘effing’ and faecal references but no jokes. Possibly there will be some in the 107 minutes it runs for or, more likely, the ‘effs’ and ‘esses’ are the jokes – certainly that is what passes for comedy on Mock The Week etc.

    Ah well, just need to wait for the next foreign, (not USA), film.
