    Kevin Spacey apologises over Anthony Rapp ‘sexual advance’ claim

    The Buggering British Children could have reported the above as:
    A 14 year old gay boy just happened to go to a Discovery party in Hollywood which was packed to the rafters with gay men. He claims he was bored so went to the bedroom of the man hosting the party to watch TV, where shock horror after everybody else had left ,the Usual Suspect tried to Pay it forward with this American beauty , however the Big kahuna didn’t get his way with the Working girl because at double the age of Se7en he couldn’t be a Consenting adult. resulting in the Baby driver doing an LA Confidential when he approached the Shipping news with this story about how he had a Margin call with the Rebel in the Rye over a Doomsday gun. He’s now seeing a Shrink

    Talk about Swimming with sharks.

      Point out if the accuser is also homosexual, and if so how he ended up one, was working from 6 years old surrounded by sickos a factor?

        They’re coming out (!!) of the woodwork now…get the popcorn.

        I was interested that the bBBC used the following snippet in their article:
        “Rapp said he was able to go to the bathroom before he left.”

        Am I missing something here – is it significant in some way…code for something? Or is it implying that he didn’t run out screaming straight away and therefore shares some blame?

      Stew,
      Britain is full to overflowing. I am sick to death of being lied to by the BBC, The rest of the MSM, the government and the rest of the political elite. They claim, and some cretins believe them, that as a country we are wealthier owing to mass migration, that our housing shortage and the strain on public services is not due to mass immigration. They claim we have been culturally enriched by mass migration. So people being murdered and thousands of girls being raped are enrichment are they? Banning old hymns like Onward Cristian Soldiers , is enrichment is it ? Our service personnel being advised not to wear service dress outside their secure base , is enrichment is it? Old celebrations involving blacking up banned , is enrichment is it ? Children being served Halal meat , is enrichment is it.
      Sadly I could go on and on and on. We , the indigenous Brits , were never asked whether we wanted mass migration into our country. We weren’t asked because the elite knew that we would have said NO. But they went ahead in secret . Now we are supposed to welcome people into our midst who despise us and our culture. If we don’t we are said to be racists. If we as much as frown at the invaders we are guilty of hate crime and hunted down by our increasingly repressive police force. If we seek to stand up for our culture and ourselves we are denigrated by the elite. How much more are supposed to take?

        Not sure whether anyone else picked this up from Question Time last week, but one of the questions raised related to whether we should allow people who had left this country to fight in Syria/ Iraq for IS back into this country.

        Everyone who spoke from the audience said “No” in their own way.

        Everyone on the panel said they should be allowed back into the country.

        I’m highly suspicious that our establishment is gestating civil war. We have good reason to suspect they are working toward the deliberate breakdown of our civilisation. Then they can play saviours & offer us solutions in return for our surrender and obedience. ‘Order out of chaos. ‘

          I have said before that I don’t think our politicians are capable of the long-term vision that would be required to foment civil war or to implement the Koudenhove-Khalergi plan of pan-European population replacement. Some may be in favour of this (though I think support is largely from academics and theorists) but as Douglas Murray points out, most politicians don’t look any further than tomorrow’s headlines. Mr Murray also suggests that Merkel’s Millions are the result of little more than Merkel not wanting the news to carry pictures of German border guards behind wire fences turning away refugees.

            I would like to share your optimism. It’s easy to believe our politicians are only self-serving & lack vision but they are without a doubt, fostering Islam. And Islam eventually descends a country into civil war (if there is effective resistance). It’s the usual pattern. There are too many models both historical & contemporary to put my concern about the future down to mere speculation & conspiracy theory.

            I think Murray’s suggestion is actually the case. The German BBC’s were full of mindless metaphysical debate about the “effectiveness of walls and fences in the 21st century” Some commentators actually seemed to think that the laws of physics would be suspended by the Gutmensch collective thinking nice thoughts and the new arrivals would walk through any barrier like ghosts. Barbed wire fences and armed border guards did not chime well with Willkommenskultur and the “moral superpower” rhetoric.

            Cranmer – I think we have a political/ruling class ( mainly drawn from the “new model” liberal establishment) which do not identify with either the concept of being British in any way, shape or form. They have an insatiable sense of entitlement and see themselves as the “natural leaders” of us little people. They are used to making easy money via establishment jobs, or getting the establishment to work for them. They generally live in “better quality” areas and thus never really experience the day to day challenges that living cheek by jowl with an alien (and often hostile) culture and all the problems that brings to a society.

            Consequently they can rule in the style of whatever the current liberal “fashionable” theory is and if it all goes wrong it matters not to them. Because of their financial muscle and connections – they can move pretty much wherever they want..

            We all know that only an idiot would allow these murderers and rapists back into this country . and that is what exactly our leaders seem to be. Unfortunately high level qualifications do not seem to confer common sense and in their case only immeasurable arrogance. To understand them we need to realise that they have no loyalty to our country or culture only to eachother, their own opinions and their own bank balances. I am afraid abject surrender by our ruling class is always a practical solution as it means that they can go back to “business as usual” and it is always someone elses child/father/mother/sister that gets it.

            No sensible person would reward a 6 ear old for breaking a window , so why reward rapists and murders for what they have done. Surely an adult would more fully understand the consequences of his actions? What message does this send?.

            Unfortunately for the rest of us we only have one country and one chance to get this right which is why we need to resist these idiots and their “compassionate idiocy” to the end.

          Lucy/Kaiser,
          the left have been fomenting revolution for some time. It is slow burn ideological revolution starting with the re-education of our youth, the infiltration of all of our major institutions (including the ‘establishment’) leading to the imposition of thought crime, which as it can be subjective, means that they get to decide who’s guilty. In short, everyone who does not subscribe to their social justice narrative – you, me, everyone on this site for starters. The Diptera in the ointment is that there are (still) many more of us than there are of them – and – their weapon of choice is Twatter and Farcebook, where they can conjure up a formidable army of powder puffs, protected within their safe spaces with the few books that they haven’t burnt. They are media warriors who can verbalise violently but will never stand on the wall, like we can.

        For me we should stop talking about Britain as it really doesn’t exist as a country anymore only as a land mass.

        England is the country that is suffering uniquely from overpopulation.

        Scotland is of course sparsely populated which is why the SNP can play to the gallery on the immigration issue, as it really isn’t an issue at all north of the border.

        • ID says:

          It depends what you mean by issue. The small village in which my grandparents lived in the Scottish Borders now has a Polski Sklep and a vibrant Polish community. Its presence or absence would have an infinitesimal effect on the immigration figures, but 10 Poles in a village with 100 inhabitants is a significant cultural change. No wonder the SNP sets such great store by “civic nationalism” – it captures the Polish vote while indigenous Scots make their way to England and other destinations.
          The German media largely ignore Brexit as they claim Britain was never really part of “Europe”. This is, of course, true, but I have never heard any remainer explain why if the UK is not part of the promised Euroland so many EU citizens seek employment in the UK rather than the EU utopia in which they live. Surely, UK citizens should be emigrating en masse to EU paradise before the sky falls in.

        Like the song says. “Somethings Gotta Give” and oh boy do we know who the mainstream media and the deep state will come gunning for when the shit hits the fan. We really do need to ask ourselves who benefits from all this. Are we being subjected to this stupidity for ideological or economic motives, neither of which are valid. There must be a group of people who wield more power than our elected government because whichever party takes “power” the policies remain the same. We’re missing something here.

          That’s the point Lefty. Who benefits from this serious massive long term shift in the nature of the British way of life? Why are the BBC refusing to accept that massive immigration puts a huge strain on every aspect of our nation, from GPs to schools to hospitals to care homes. Why is multiculturalism a good thing? Who is applauding the fact that London is now 60 percent Muslim? And exactly who does the BBC represent when it constantly runs against the will of the majority to leave the EU? And how can the same organisation that constantly promotes wimmin’s issues also celebrate a gender free agenda?

              Lefty and Marmite,
              In his otherwise excellent book The Strange Death of Europe, Douglas Murray cannot answer the question you put with any realistic explanation. He thinks that political shortsightedness allowed mass migration of alien cultures in response to the need for cheap labour. Then under various government, but particularly Blair’s, the flood gates were opened for ideological not economic reasons. Now it is toxic amongst the political and cultural elite to oppose mass immigration , particularly from the third world. DM thinks that the leading politicians know it is a disaster and that we are heading onto the rocks but they can’t bring themselves to admit their mistake.
              This seems a very weak explanation to me. Just as is his view that Merkel didn’t want to be seen as using border guards to keep refugees out by force and so opened the flood gates. Like both of you I think that there has to be more to it than that. Demographics may be one factor, but surely the sensible response , particularly for rich countries like Germany With small immigrant populations , would have been to use large financial incentives and lavish state support to increase the birth rate of the indigenous population. No , we are as you say missing the key factor. I wonder about the influence of Saudi oil and money. Perhaps there are even more sinister factors at work.

    Call me old fashioned but ….it is half term in this area this week.

    The Today programme was all about sexual harassment by MP’s; although I didn’t hear the programme (and would certainly have chosen Classic FM in preference), apparently Woman’s Hour was going to be about sex for couples in long standing relationships according to their trailer and the programme after that was going to be about erectile dysfunction. I am just grateful that I am no longer on the school run with a teenage boy or having the radio on Radio 4 whilst he was home on school holidays.

      Several things that arise in this story:

      1. On the highest figure I’ve seen quoted (36), that points to about 5% of the total number of MPs being miscreants. Whilst one misbehaving MP is obviously not good, this doesn’t suggest that Parliament is the cesspit of iniquity that the narrative seems to suggest

      2. There has been no mention of police activity/ investigation, which is probably understandable at this point

      3. The story is substantially media-led, possibly because there’s a Tory impact in it but also possibly also to deflect away from current Labour sleazy-stuff, where the Labour Party Chairman (Ian Lavery) would appear to have questions to answer.

      Very crudely speaking, when I was a teenager back in the 1950s I had no sex instruction from my school, from my parents or from Woman’s Hour but somehow, miraculously, instinctively I knew how to fuck and so did my girlfriend and we knew we were in love.
      We needed nobody to tell us how and to prove it we have four very grown up sons and we are still happily married. I never once told my boys how to fuck but somehow we now have 12 beautiful grandchildren. Even the beast in the field needs no instruction. So sex instruction? Just another fucking gravy train. The powers that be have deliberately fucked up the modern family and I want to know why.
      Sorry about the language but I started my working life at age 15 on a building site. Happy days indeed.

    Sudan US sanctions: Cancer patients and businesses hopeful
    Sudanese music star Hawa Mohammed Adam hopes the lifting of US trade sanctions means she will no longer have to travel to Egypt to receive life-saving treatment for cancer. She was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and her extended family, friends and fans raised the money to send her to Cairo….Twenty-five years ago, the Kobani factory used to produce 100 tonnes of groundnut and sesame oil a day. But for the past five years it has not made a drop, as the company was unable to import spare parts from Europe because of trade embargoes…They were imposed in the 1990s for harbouring fugitives such as al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, and included the freezing of all Sudanese government assets in the US and a ban on Washington’s allies trading with Khartoum.

    Nasty US sanctions , hurting the little people the most , especially when they were all about OBL who has been dead 6 years. Yet Sanctions were first imposed on Khartoum in 1997, when it harboured fugitives including Osama bin Laden.

    A further round was put in place in 2006 in response to Sudanese forces’ actions during the Darfur genocide. Funny how the bBC doesn’t mention the latter.

How can any one be a true representative if they’ve been in that place for going on 40 years ?

      But, using the same sorts of data, clearly, the more mature and experienced people in the country voted for Brexit. I.e. the ones who have worthwhile educational accomplishments, rather than the Mickey Mouse bag-paper certificates of today…. such as the ones gained by graduates, so many of whom had to attend remedial courses in in literacy and numeracy just to be able just to comprehend the basics of what was going on in their degree subjects. These would be the people that Mr Sheerman thinks have ‘higher educational attainments’, of course.

        (1) The more relevantly educated a well educated scientist is as regards the core basics of calibrating carbon dioxide warming using both the Arrhenius method and the Unified Theory of Climate. Then this gang seem more likely to tell Donald Trump that Man-made Global warming is a hoax.

        (2) The more relevantly educated a well educated person is as regards the core basics of European Union Governance. Then the more likely they seem to support Brexit.

        In my experience, support for Brexit and Climate sceptics seem as strong in Mensa as it is in the uneducated Labour area of Hull and the well educated Tory area of East Yorkshire.

That after 144 days on the 19th of August 2016 Manafort resigned from the Trump campaign 2 days after Trump received his first intelligence briefing (a standard procedure for major party presidential nominees.) where he was made aware that Manafort had been under an FBI investigation since 2014.

        Yes I listened to that and Jon Sopel was speaking as though Trump was being indicted – he made as many mentions of Trump as he could . Then the other chap came on and spent almost all of his time telling what he had ‘heard’ from ‘sources’ and tried to making tenuous links to Trump at the end…despite adding all of these are allegations…it was a complete non story that could have been said in a few words with barely a mention of Trump and the Russians

          I looks like Mr Manafort has been indicted for fraud, committed whilst he was in Ukraine, but, of course he had dealings with those who had some sympathy with Russia – i.e parliamentarians in Ukraine at the time his business dealing went on – i.e. up to 2015 – as did probably every other businessman in the world trying to trade in Ukraine at that time.

          The so-called ‘link’ to the investigation into Mr Trump and his team ‘colluding with Russia’ during the election process is incredibly tenuous to say the least – and is probably, in fact, ‘non-existent’.

          But, the US MSM and the BBC aren’t going to let any little thing like ‘facts’ impact on their bias in any way.

      BoBotC, problem for the Beeb in reporting this is that it throws an uncomfortable spotlight on the temperature guage and a lack of warming. Yes, I know that with Attenborough’s assistance, the BBC will claim the oceans are warming excessively but that rather then highlights that global warming really does need to be Global if it is to be Anthropogenic Global Warming.

      A tad cosy in the water off the coast of Venuzuela and really quite toasty in some Australian outback desert doesn’t quite cut it as global.

      We have had record CO2 emissions for at least three of the last four or five years. The warming should be kicking in now. Why is it not doing so? A question not really aired yet on the BBC, and certainly not aired regularly by the BBC.

          But Richard, it has raised a lot of tax, so it has been a very useful hoax.

          If it is indeed a hoax. The earth should be warming as extra new bodies are being added to it daily while old (and some might say superfluous ones) are increasingly resistant (although not quite so excessively as we are told) refusing to shuffle off this mortal coil.

          [An aside but an associated one: old peoples’ homes – all of the ones I have visited – are usually kept heated to a point where Shadrach, Mesach and Abed-Nego would have been in some distress therein. More old people on the planet must also equal more warming. Basic science but realistic and very real science.]

          There was some warming; ordinary thermometers showed that and as I have posted many times before are probably a much more reliable guide to what is going on than climate theories, computer programmes and sensors thousands of miles away in space.

          Instead of spending millions of BBC Licence Fee-payers money filming the ocean depths to prop up AGW/CC theories, a few thousand quid with Attenborough suspended upside down for a few years in the leaf canopy of a forest or two might be more scientifically revealing as far as the climate is concerned. But it it might not reveal what the BBC are keeping schtum on, that the predicted warming is starting look later than a London bus.

          I heard a mutter the other day, courtesy of Radio 4 to the effect that “Well, maybe we have some inaccuracies but we may only be four or five decades out.”

            I forgot to include the following:

            Emails leaked at the weekend show ( a few years bacK) there is indeed a conspiracy to deceive the world – and Rudd has fallen for it.

            This conspiracy comprises a group of warming scientists who have been central in spreading the false claim that the world has never been hotter and man’s gases are to blame.

            It’s come to light after nearly 4000 emails and documents were stolen from the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia and dumped on the internet by what is almost certainly a whistleblower.

            What they reveal is perhaps the greatest scientific scandal of our time – a conspiracy by warmist scientists to fudge statistics, sack sceptical scientists, block the release of data to prevent checking, illegally destroy data, deceive reporters, censor sceptical papers, and hide errors in their work.

            Most extraordinary are the emails in which these scientists admit to each other what they’ve never confessed to the world – that the world is not warming as their theories predicted.

            In fact, it’s been cooling since 2001.

    The bBC is reporting on the rise of CO2 emissions:
    Record surge in atmospheric CO2 seen in 2016
    Concentrations of CO2 in the Earth’s atmosphere surged to a record high in 2016, according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). Last year’s increase was 50% higher than the average of the past 10 years.

    And whom does the bBC blame for the above record rise?
    The report has been issued just a week ahead of the next instalment of UN climate talks, in Bonn. Despite the declaration by President Trump that he intends to take the US out of the deal, negotiators meeting in Germany will be aiming to advance and clarify the rulebook of the Paris agreement.

    1) The US hasn’t left and according to current press leaks may now remain.
    2) China in 2015 produced just less CO2 than the next 3 highest areas (US/EU/India)

    Anybody seen this propoganda crap from the bBC:
    From Syria torture to UK art success
    Hasan Abdalla says his positive experiences in the UK caused him to completely redefine his artwork and achieve much more than he had in Syria.

    Here is how the Guardian reported on the same bloke 3 years ago:
    Hasan Abdalla, 58
    Was: academic and artist, Syria
    Now: jobseeker, London

    Hasan Abdalla had a well-equipped studio in the garden outside his Damascus flat; every morning he would walk past orange, apple, pear and pomegranate trees, to paint inside or in the open when the weather was fine. Now he paints in the bedroom of the south London bedsit where he has been living since he was granted asylum. It’s much noisier, and he finds that the sounds from the Iceland loading station in front of the house and the railway tracks behind are often distracting. He has tried listening to music or singing to himself to drown out the noise, but on the whole it has been a difficult period for painting. He misses his wife and three sons, whom he hasn’t seen since his hurried departure from Syria in July 2011. He finds London an inspirational place, but he also feels disoriented and alone.

    Every stretch of wall in his small flat is covered with the artworks he managed to bring with him, and a few that he has done since arriving here. Beneath his bed he keeps rolled-up 3m canvases. The small kitchen table is covered with old newspaper, ready for him to start painting, but at the moment this happens rarely.

    When you are dependent on jobseeker’s allowance, painting is an expensive habit. In Syria, Abdalla regularly exhibited with two galleries, and made a good living from selling his work. But his reputation has not travelled with him, and although he has had pictures exhibited in three galleries here, he has sold very little. For three months he went by bus every Sunday to Bayswater Road, with as many paintings as he could carry, to try selling them on the park railings. It was a dispiriting experience, since the pictures got battered on the journey; and although passersby made appreciative comments, they rarely bought pictures.

    In Syria and Libya, Abdalla sold his work for around £2,500. He has sold only four pictures since coming to England, each for a fraction of that price. Despite these difficulties, he knows that fleeing Syria, and paying an agent £20,000 of his savings, was the right thing to do. Two of his friends, who had been with him on a protest march in 2011, were shot by the authorities. He had spent time in prison in 2010, and been badly beaten. He was sacked from his job as a university lecturer because he failed security checks. Following his departure, his flat was searched and one of his sons arrested.

    He has been supported by the Red Cross and thinks he is lucky to have ended up in England. “People are friendly. They try not to make you feel like a stranger.”

The “camps” were just fenced off pieces of open land, these men weren’t war criminals as they were taken out if identified and actually received fairer treatment.

    Had they been able to foresee the outcome, the BBC would have announced their coverage of the Under 17s World Cup final on Saturday afternoon with the warning ‘This programme contains scenes which some viewers may find distressing’.

    ‘Some viewers’ would have been the self-hating, race-baiting hard Left who seek to divide and destroy good old Blighty with their endless spewing of sick, clapped out mantras that for some mysterious reason seem so appealing to Jeremy Corbyn voters: ‘Racists! Little Englanders! Knuckle-dragging nationalists! Islamophobes’ – and the rest of their tedious bile-filled slogans.

    For what did we see at the end of the game? A victorious England team, led by a black captain draped in an England flag, running to the Calcutta crowd where they were greeted by ecstatic locals in their England shirts, waving their England flags.

    Look and learn, BBC, from your own broadcast, and the next time you invite some Common Purpose boneheaded foghorn of the fascist Left onto one of your programmes, challenge them with that amazing scene – for that is England: not racist, not divided, not unequal, but a land where all are welcomed and will have the same opportunities as anyone else if they buy into the culture that binds us together and has made England a beacon of fairness, justice and democracy.

    1)The Israeli military said the “terror tunnel” was still under construction when it was “neutralised”.
    2)Israel is using sophisticated measures to thwart tunnels dug by militants.
    3)The conflict left at least 2,251 Palestinians dead – including more than 1,462 civilians, according to the UN – and 11,231 injured. On the Israeli side, 67 soldiers and six civilians were killed, and up to 1,600 injured.
    4) Israel is building a huge barrier along its border with Gaza aimed at preventing militants tunnelling underneath it.
    5) An Islamic Jihad statement said the tunnels were “part of the policy of deterrence to defend the Palestinian people” and accused Israel of a “dangerous escalation”,

    And here is what the bBC doesn’t tell you, the tunnel was blown up inside…Israel. (Even the Arab media mentions that )

    Gaza:Islamic Jihad: ‘Destruction of tunnels along Gaza border is a dangerous escalation’

    1. Why are his meetings damning but the media sees no “collusion” with Russians by the Clinton campaign in funding the Pissgate dossier?
    2. Given the existence of the Pissgate dossier why is it suggested that the Russians were out to help Trump?

      I’m an ancient so I can remember a time when it was being reported by the opinion makers that the British were so reserved and uptight that if they accidentally brushed against someone on a bus or train they would die of embarrassment and that we needed to be more relaxed and shed our stiff upper lip attitude.
      Sounds a bit like we may have managed to do that and said stiffness has traveled somewhat south but still the opinion makers don’t like it.
      “Ah yes” I can hear them shout “but there is a difference between scratching your arse and scratching the skin off” Well, as usual, they started it and they’re still at it so live with the consequences you dopey twats.

    When Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn refused to attend this week’s dinner in London to mark the centenary of the Balfour Declaration, a dinner to which Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been invited as the guest of Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May, Corbyn said Labour’s shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry would attend in his place.

    Now remarks made by Thornberry inescapably imply that, like Corbyn, she too regrets the fact that Israel was ever created. Instead she supports its mortal enemies whose agenda remains Israel’s destruction.

      I couldn’t agree more. That’s one of the main reasons I don’t come on here very much these days, and just dip in and out occasionally. I simply haven’t got a clue what a lot of these posts are about – it’s as though they are in some sort of obscure foreign language. Perhaps I am getting a bit too old for all of this. The other thing is that most of the humour and piss-taking has gone as well, and it’s all become much too serious.

                I try to add the twitter text and the link it talks about, but I admit I’m getting tired following the links and copying the text. But by just adding the link it fails to record the text for posterity – if the link is removed or deleted this site will fail to show what the BBC were up to with their vague titles and exclusion of the word ‘terror’ for example.

                Maybe Katty Kay of the BBC has the best idea and just use symbols in your tweet. ‘?’. Maybe the BBC are looking for all tweets to just be a ‘!’ or a ‘?’. I joked previously about the BBC using question marks at the end of the sentence to say what they wanted to happen, just using the question mark is the logical end I suppose.

      You do realise you are posting on an online blog? With hyperlinks to pertinent material?

      And our state media uses social media in all its tarnished glory to censor, suppress or propagandise to taste using predominantly liberal outlets all their staff are on to garner what they will and shunt out or on a ckrding to narrative?

      At least, unlike the BBC, such sites are free, and the option exists to pass on their content. Or bits that don’t appeal.

      Just like this forum. See a quoted tweet? Don’t know how to handle it? Simply skip past. Or stick head in favoured sense deprivation medium. Like sand. And not come out unless to dip.

      Or….you can have a whinge based on ignorance and start pushing for, what, how you like things done?

      Just make sure you do the same if someone posts a URL from a BBC-supporting politician or The Graun.

      Ignorance may for some be bliss; for others staying abreast of every tool in the media toolbox seems wise Intel.

    What have Sandy in Bedfordshire, Driffield in Yorkshire, and Market Drayton in Shropshire have in common with the Grenfell Tower fire?

    Well, the population of each of those market towns is about 11,000.
    Which is apparently, according to bBBCLondon, also the number of people needing mental health support becuase of the effects of the Grenfell Tower fire on them.

    Now the death toll is now set to be under 100. Tragic yes, but in context aboutbthe aame as about 3 weeks worth of road fatalities. But 11000 people needing support? The equivalent of a whole market town?
    Errr. Sorry. No.

      Ah yes, the Plastic Prof who obviously believes the scientific method doesn’t apply to the man-made global warming hypothesis.

      Like Attenborough, he’s another who has sacrificed reason and impartiality for money or fame or for the sake of maintaining a preening self-regard – in Cox’s case, all three.

      “Twitter thread where 50 people mock Brian Cox”

      Does it have anything to do with the biases of the BBC?

      If I take the link text at face value it relates to 50 people being rude about Brian Cox. So what? I don’t particulary like the Cheshire Cat but I’m sure he’s not all bad. Perhaps it’s the actor chappy? I quite like him as an actor but he can keep his politics to himself.

      Hmm, what to do? Follow a link to who knows where, that no doubt will be just a chain of hashtags and a few words, that a) it won’t be imediately apparent what they mean, or b) said by whom, or c) about what. What a waste of time.

      Maxicony merely amuses; Twitter Twats troll.

        Cripes, someone got out of bed the wrong side today.

        Still, it has been a fair while since the forum has been graced by a self-appointed outside house monitor, with obligatory ad hom topping.

        Prof. Cox is of course a BBC part-time employee, and often cited on matters science on this basis, as well as using his position to comment on matters the BBC holds dear.

        Which is pretty relevant.

        But then finding an actual troll amusing suggests an interesting value set.

        Jim S – my post above should have made clear that Cox abandoned all pretence at science when he took the BBC shilling and became a ‘climate change’ zealot. That’s where the BBC bias comes in – he’s become part of the deceit by abusing his position as a ‘scientist’.

    With regard to complaints above of people putting twitter and facebook posts into comments – I personally am very grateful for it.

    This blog is about reporting on and commenting on BBC bias – which includes following the BBC bias on ALL their official outputs INCLUDING SOCIAL MEDIA – such as twitter and facebook and whatever.

    Social Media IS having a MAJOR IMPACT ON SOCIETY and it is Important to follow the BBC bias (propaganda) onto it.

    In addition to this, influential BBC staff (reporters, producers …) should have their various social media accounts tracked for bias and conflicts of interests.

    Unfortunately these are the signs of the times and if you want to understand fully what is going on we need people following social media.

    All I will say in partial support of the complainants is that occasionally, an additional line or two of explanation would be appreciated.

    As I have also mentioned in the past – maybe for those with a bit more time on their hands as well as expertise – they could consider developing linked websites focussing on different aspects of the BBC propaganda – maybe they could contact the technical volunteers supporting this site (through the contact us link) for advice.

    The BBC is a multibillion pound, multi-media, multi-platform, multi-lingual, global propaganda outfit – and it is more or less impossible to keep track of all the propaganda they are producing.

    ps I have just noticed this website has an “In Their Own Tweets” section – so maybe that section could be developed and posts detailing twitter could be added there. But I don’t know how many people go to that section – there seems to be no recent discussion/

        I use Twitter occasionally to put forward my own stuff which is not relevant here. But I note that so many BBC employees use it regularly to promote BBC bias. Additionally, there is much criticism of BBC bias on Twitter and Facebook, which is worth repeating.
        Also remember that BBC news and reports are frequently based on Tweets from Trump and others.

        As for complaints about conspiracy theories it is wise to go careful. Most governments and their supportive media dismiss as conspiracy theory alternative accounts of the news put out for mass consumption. What is often dismissed as conspiracy theory is frequently someone doing the job that investigative journos were supposed to do – ask bloody embarrassing questions and provide alternative stories which may fit the facts, In science we might call it ‘entertaining a plausible hypothesis

      The problem isn’t so much the source of a comment – whether it’s Twitter, another blog or the BBC itself, but the way it is presented and whether it is on topic. If the presentation makes the sense obscure it is just adding noise to the signal.

        GCooper I think there is some problem that people need to check what a quoted tweet looks like AFTER they have posted.
        Cos it doesn’t look the same as they see on Twitter. Here the first image or link does show up
        BUT if the tweet contains a quoted tweet ..then you need to post both the original aswell

        There is a separate issue in that you may wish to post a tweet which is a reply to someone
        but unfortunately the very first reply when posted here always has the initial tweet above itt, so you get 2 tweets when you only want to speak about one.
        but mostly people should be able to spot and ignore the first one.

          I use a Mac with Safari browser.

          Copying a tweet link and positing here shows the tweet in full, with link embedded.

          I sometimes have time to link the chain, but not always. It is not hard to follow if interested. Or leave if not. Certainly less time than posting how busy one is to be bothered not doing it.

          Some are kind enough to add the link content, for which I thank them.

    Of course, because if we’ve learnt one thing over the last few weeks; it’s that young female actors were just begging to watch Harvey Weinstein wank off in the shower.

    Well done taffman.

    The Beeb breathlessly reports that Fallon touched someone’s knee!

    This is starting to feel like an episode of Brass Eye. Molestageddon. Someone touched a woman’s knee once! What next, a man looked an attractive woman for a bit too long once or accidentally viewed mild pornography?

    Isn’t the #Metoo nauseating? It has just become a massive man-hating orgy, an excuse for mass Narcissism and emotional incontinence. Women never exploit their sexuality to get their way with men – never! The idea that they might in any way use their wiles among rich and powerful men is absolutely ridiculous.

    If the BBBC are so concerned about sexual harrassment, then why do they keep showing as much arse – both male and female – to get viewers interested? Why do they keep wanting to get as close to a TV proper shag without ‘offending’ the taxpaying public?

    The national assumption has always been that if you want to be an actress, then get ’em off, and if you want to be a stud in a crap soap, then do the same – but not nessecarily in that order.

    What a pathetic ‘story’ the BBC is whingeing about. They were among the worst culprits when Savile was leering at kids, and took not a blind bit of notice. Will the BBBC show another clip of Suzannah Reed flashing her knicks? Then doing it agan as an action replay?

    “Get used to seeing more of Mo”

    Steady, all you islamophobes out there, don’t choke on your cornflakes. Our Mo Farah is coming home. The BBC see this relocation from the states as fanatstic headline news (and not quite so BBC-newsworthy is Mo’s dropping of his controversial drug allegation embattled coach). It’s a pity but this story really just draws attention to the fact that our Mo has been abroad for much of the time that the BBC as idolised him as a British hero.

      And how quickly we all forget:

      Mo Farah was last night under pressure to fully explain missing two drugs tests after it emerged his doorbell would have been rung up to seven times when he failed to answer it to anti-doping officials before London 2012.
      The crisis engulfing the double Olympic champion intensified yesterday, with it also being revealed that he avoided being banned from the scene of his greatest triumph because he was deemed not to have evaded testers at his Teddington home in early 2011.
      That would have been shortly after he began working with Alberto Salazar, the coach who was this month accused of doping some of his other athletes.

      http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/othersports/athletics/mo-farah/11683785/Mo-Farah-explanation-for-missing-drugs-test-called-into-question.html

      Can’t help but think if he was a white, English athlete who expressed right-of-centre views on Twitter, the BBC would quickly be into reminder mode every time his name got mentioned.

      Instead, the BBC Memory Hole was cranked into overdrive and it has all faded into mist….

    ‘There’s no integrity in the sport’

    Damning words there from the father of a paralympian. In further sports news this morning the BBC are forced to acknowledge that one of their super-precious pet projects could be as bent as a hairpin. Now let’s just get this straight – disabled people doing sports is generally a good idea. But when wheelchair racing is promoted by the desperately virtue-signalling likes of the BBC as an equivalent of the real thing then we have problems. Let’s be honest, sport these days is more corporate than corinthian. The audience is guilt-tripped into support for the nonsense. Athletes have been cheating – exaggerating their disabilities – or so the BBC has suddenly discovered. That of course doesn’t happen in utopia. But human nature will tend to make the sportsman do all he can to win the acolades. How long before some sap cuts his own legs off to win gold? We know the lefty-minded are oblidged to cheer for paralympics and women’s football and if they like it then us poor saps are evil bigots if we won’t take our medicine prescribed by the left. But perhaps we instinctively understand human nature a little better than the naive BBC crowd who have gone all misty-eyed for the paralympics.

    Personal declaration – I am not physically disabled and not involved in sport

    I agree that al Beeb over eggs the para sports stuff – in the same way they do with girlies playing footy and now the kids. They have a big sports department to pay and justify . However – I do admire the people who carry a disability and apply themselves to competitive sport – particularly those who have been injured fighting for Blighty for whom I thank for their efforts.

    Toady watch
    – personal declaration – I am RC
    The head girl had a chat with the arch bish of cantab about Luther – a tv show I have seen- apparently the Christian church split because of it …. any way the head girl used the interview to generally undermine and dismiss Christianity in accordance with principles of al beeb . The false prophet in the room – who never had a mention -was Islam and it’s current project of taking over Blighty with our Implied consent.
