    Following the posts on this site and the news on Al Beeb this evening, I have come to the conclusion that in the interest of this nation and its indigenous people, May has to Go and Rees-Mogg should replace her.

      Taffman, unfortunately the BBC have already created the narrative – thanks to Gavin Williamson MP and his promotion – to attack Jacob Rees-Mogg should he be immediately promoted to a senior Ministerial position.

          Not only that which you rightly highlight – the BBC are forgetting all those in the past who had meteoric rises in politics: Gavin Williamson has ‘never spoken at the Despatch Box’. Eh, what? Since when was that a vitally important criteria?

          In recent times, with massive Cabinets and frequent re-shuffles beloved of modern PMs and Party Leaders, is it not possible for an MP to go from after their Maiden Speech to junior to a Ministry without uttering a word in the House? It is, at present, in the Labour Party!

          I thought it a bit strange that the BBC sought to attack Gavin Williamson (Remainer) in that way. Yes, I realise he’s a Tory and the BBC hate the Tories at present but then I thought that they might have a longer game in view and use that specious argument against Williamson, so that should J R-M be offered a Ministry they can immediately attack his inexperience.

          Russians interfering and undermining our Government in our politics?

          The BBC’s print arm, The Guardian, is already on the case.

          It started pro-active Rees-Mogg bashing some time back. A lady resembling a bewigged Botox experiment gone wrong, name of Suzanne Moore, wrote a piece entitled Jacob Rees-Mogg isn’t old-fashioned, he’s a thoroughly modern bigot which is essentially a long fact-free Lefty sneer at his views.

          His positions opposing abortion and same-sex marriage are described as “appalling bigotry” and “anti-women”.

          This is just a smokescreen, of course.

          He is a free thinker, who commits the crime of having “values”. He refuses to play the Leftist media’s identity politics game, which is all they have, so he must be ridiculed, and then destroyed.

    Dealing with my postnatal depression
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/stories-41930167
    Oh dear, where to start with this one. Three white straight males with postnatal depression….yes, let’s pave the way for pregnant people and anyone being able to give birth…its not biological, after all! These men are having a mental wobble as a result of realising the enormity of becoming a parent. A very common feeling. Not to be confused with a chemical imbalance resulting in postnatal depression. However, they’re an easy target for emasculation.

      ‘Some’ might call me a straight white male and I’ve got post-natal depression too!

      When you’ve got two thirty-ish nephews that go to bed at midnight and breakfast at 1 p.m. it’s pretty depressing. I imagine that they spend so long in bed because it is boring waiting to inherit my pennies. Either that or the stress of thinking all day with their amazing ‘know-it-all’ brains that have worked out that ‘society’ needs to adapt to them!

    Five Live discusses May’s comments on Russia, and how they are ‘undermining free countries.’

    The BBC would know all about undermining free countries, seeing as they are against democracy and free speech. Of course they know better than us, so dictating how we must behave is a noble thing in their eyes.

    I am on the 5.10 train and I notice everyone on my carriage is male. I guess the women are too busy being oppressed in a bed paid for by these horrible men, off to do gruelling and dangerous work in the cold for twelve hours. God I would hate to work in construction. As the feminists sit in warm offices condemning men, they should think of who built their offices and provide countless other unglamorous but essential services to enhance their lives. I am still yet to see a woman collect my bin bags, a staggering example of inequality which the equalities industry is silent about.

      Agreed Beebro.
      My hours are irregular, but I do note that I`m one of the few women up and about at 5a.m or so when I start on earlies.
      Get a few cleaners about who are female, but all the lorries, early car starts, de-icings etc feature blokes.
      Not a sexist point-but 9/11 showed countless blokes going willingly to die in the most dangerous and doomed circumstances, but blokes somehow are willing to do this.
      No harm in being honest is there, unless you`re a media freak who`s paid to turn common sense upside down?
      Bins are getting taken as I write-never see women doing THIS ground breaking, glass ceiling kind of job do we?
      I`m happy to clean the glass ceiling, don`t want to have to pick up the glass or tend the injured below though why break it, it`s not a problem to 95% of humanity is it?-why would I want or need to hurt them, just so I can get on in some job where my kids are strangers and my mum can`t get to see me?

    Tired toady watch

    For some reason HMG put some one onto the 0810 interview with Robinson . It’s always painful listening to an al Beeb journo with a huge ego talking at a politician – the “ how would you vote on Brexit now ?” Question is deployed for no reason but to entertain the beeboid .

    I don’t understand why al Beeb doesn’t get someone with the opposition view instead of a luv in with coonsberg strutting her overpaid stuff.

    Al beebs attitude to deny the referendum vote continues to polarise and divide people of one view or the other. I think they are doing real damage – which is their objective . I muse some times on how much Brexit has been caused by al Beeb. The years of suppression of talking about immigration by slapping ‘racist’ on it has built up a resentment which exploded the first time people were allowed to express their view. I smile at that one- particularly as an ethnic minority white English Londoner.

        Meanwhile, in other news Project Fear continues apace. We are told that food will rot in lorries as they queue for admission at UK ports. Actually, much of our food arrives by cargo flight but don’t let that mere technicality bother you, BBC. And according to Mishal Hussein’s interviewee this a.m. on TODAY goes Down Your Way in green wellies, 60%, yes, sixty per cent of UK grown fruit & veg is left to rot because it doesn’t meet supermarket & EU requirements.

        I guess what the BBC are worried about are supplies of Brie, wine and champagne. Probably another symptom of Lime’s Grove’s Disease. Don’t worry guys, Brie is best enjoyed a little soft, champers and ‘reds’ should be drunk close to room temp and the white wine can go in the ‘frige for later.

        The rest of us?

        I suspect we may see a boom in farm gate shops selling fruit & veg and a big return to Pick Your Own businesses. Some supermarkets are already making plans for that & one or two (?) have already started stocking misshapen and poor coloured fruit & veg as an anti-waste and environmental benefit measure anyway.

    BBC’s “Jerry Christmas” Propaganda falls into the BBC memory hole.

    Reference CAS-4648073-VGS5J5

    Thank you for contacting the BBC.

    I understand you feel an image used on the BBC Three Web page displayed bias in favour of the Labour party and Jeremy Corbyn.

    Naturally we regret when any member of our audience is unhappy with any part of what we do. Impartiality is a core value of the BBC, and one reason why we believe our news coverage is trusted and respected around the world. We apply this principle to our reporting of all issues. BBC News never takes a position on anything that we cover, but we always aim to reflect a broad range of voices on any given subject. The BBC is of course independent of any political or commercial interests, and our news agenda would never be influenced by any outside organisation.

    The article in question is intended in a light hearted way and the item regarding the Jeremy Corbyn Christmas jumper is intended to reflect the premise of the article that Christmas marketing is increasingly pervasive and intense and should not be understood as an endorsement of Mr Corbyn or his policies. The BBC does not take a position on anything we report on. We appreciate you feel the article displays a bias in favour of Mr Corbyn and Labour so we have passed your comments to the teams responsible for the BBC Three website as well as BBC Management via our audience feedback report to ensure your concerns are seen by the right people quickly.

    For some reason they were nicknamed memory holes (we have passed your comments to the teams). When one knew that any document was due for destruction, or even when one saw a scrap of waste paper lying about, it was an automatic action to lift the flap of the nearest memory hole and drop it in, whereupon it would be whirled away on a current of warm air to the enormous furnaces which were hidden somewhere in the recesses of the building.

    A failed politician _ Douglas Alexander – who lost his seat to the SNP – presented a propaganda piece on al Beeb today looking at separations in society and worked on the basis that we must all connect with each other even if we are different. Typical socialist thinking. We must do what they decide is the thing to do. Literally group think.

    The whole thing based on a false premise but as al Beeb loves social engineering their multicultural society it is par for the course.

    A quick wiki on this former socialist mp shows that he is getting by working for Bono, A consultant for a law firm and visiting at Harvard . Must be waiting for a peerage because the comrades wouldn’t let him in again.

How can you claim any authoritative academic credibility in any publication if you leave out or completely ignore a fundamental flaw in the assertion.

      Agree, not her words exactly, but there is overwhelming discussion from Trump’s enemies in the US MSM on how Russia faked the election result, and it is natural to connect that with Treezer jumping on the bandwagon. Add to that her continuous sniping at Trump over his reference to pussy, proposed ban on immigration from unstable countries, his attitude to climate change, the Paris scam, dealing with terror, and you get the picture that Treezer is an opponent of Trump.
      Meanwhile Trump is visiting many countries and seems to be making friends. When is Treezer going to have him here?
      I hope he snubs her when he does his European tour.

      There is such a supply and demand problem for the Left. They see everything in terms of ‘oppressors’ when in reality the vast majority of people are decent.

      Another ‘news’ story is about someone being ‘racist’ by referring to a black gentleman as a ‘token ghetto boy.’ Not exactly a lynch mob, is it? The real racism is when liberals are offended on the behalf of protected groups, as if they were incapable of thinking for themselves. The refusal to ever ask awkward questions of a certain peaceful community – in stark contrast to how white people are interrogated – has always struck me as extremely racist.

    A delight to miss out on all news thus far today.
    In fact, there has been no news now since Trump went on holiday to Asia.
    There have been reheats, retreads and recyclings-but nothing new, nothing that doesn`t aim to get Trump impeached or Brexit overturned. That is all that they talk of now all the time.
    Like a new Leveson phase, where they howl in an echo chamber and squint at each other in darkened mirrors . gurning -and they act as if this is all news and exciting to the rest of us.
    My supervisor is a remoaner. All I said to her at handover was ” last week we were about to go over a cliff edge-and last night Radio 4 said that we are now about to “crash out”.
    So which one is it?…will we die in a James Dean collision on leaving the E.U?
    Or will we go off a cliff edge a la doomed lovers like at Beachy Head?
    OR-and this is my personal favourite-will we go over from Bognor Pier in our best Wonder Woman costume with crepe paper Chitty Chitty contraptions as we English like to do?
    And swim, float and cause chaos, make waves and big splashes for the gaiety of the nation? AND-call out to our New Europe chums in their knitted cozzies…come on in, nothing to fear , the water`s lovely!

    “top counter-terrorism officers in the UK — Mark Rowley and Cressida Dick — are pressuring the media to curb reports about the Islamic State and jihad attacks, putting the onus on the media for spreading Islamic State “propaganda” and terrifying the public. This attempt to create a false utopia and project to the public an illusion of safety is a detriment to Britons.

    Sanitizing the truth about the Islamic State and jihad terror only adds to the risk. It will leave UK families without ample knowledge of jihad activity, threat levels, and how to assess those levels to protect themselves and their children. These so-called “top counterterrorism officers” are in effect requesting a partial cover-up of Islamic State activity and jihad terror. In so doing, they presume to think for the public and hope to silence potentially warranted public outcries, and avoid public accountability. In effect, they’re hiding their potential failures, while aiding and abetting jihadi activity, even if unwittingly.

    Britain is in crisis and headed for disaster. The European Union’s counter-terrorism coordinator, Gilles de Kerchove, has already “singled out the UK as having more radicalised Muslims than any other country in Europe.” Britain has also “lost” 56,000 Muslim migrants due for deportation, including over 700 ex-cons. M15 revealed that up to 23,000 jihadis are living in Britain, not 3,000, as previously thought.”

        I wonder whether Mattel are producing accessories for Hijab Barbie . Maybe a rope to restrain the doll and plastic “stones” to pelt the doll with it case it gets caught committing adultery with action man in the toy box.

        Oh I forget a properly demure and modest Hijab Barbie would not be seen dead in the same toy box as action man unescorted.

        In fact in my opinion an unescorted and improperly dressed barbie deserves everything she gets!

    Beeb website: post-natal depression for men.

    Is not post-natal depression primarily a physiological and hormonal thing? My mum said the hormonal imbalance after she had me was overwhelming.

    Once again the Left is trying to alter reality to fit their ideology, taking a medical phenomenon anchored in biology and applying it lazily to those for whom such a sudden hormonal imbalance is a biological impossibility. One must despair as a scientist to have these ideologues muddying waters like this.

    Why would you want to have equality of post natal depression anyway? They keep inventing new forms of oppression; they mentioned ‘biphobic bullying’ yesterday. Surely most kids are so poorly educated they would not even understand what that means?

    From TWLLV
    “Let’s be clear: Muslims are neither good nor bad. We’re just human Farah Elahi”
    “Farah Elahi is a research and policy analyst for Runnymede, an independent race equality thinktank”
    The policy of the Runnymede Trust is “a multi- ethnic Britain”.

    So it is not astonishing to discover Farah has no idea whatsoever.

    “The main difficulty is that Islamophobia is so poorly understood.” Farah states.
    That is because there is not such ****ing thing as Islamophobia, it’s 100% bollox believed in by idiots, fools and Muslims. Nobody, nobody, has an irrational fear of Muslims.

    Everybody, who is not an idiot or fool, should have a fear of Muslims. Many Muslims should have the same fear of Muslims. 1500 years of the nastiest record in history and they are still trying to improve on it.

    What Farah is suffering from, she(?) claims, is “anti-Muslim racism” More 100% bollox, Muslims are not a race, although they play the race card whenever it is useful.

    There is more, in the same vein, but no seriatim analysis is required.

    Since you’re here . . . No chance.

    “This is not about Islam, this is not about the mosque he attends, there are hundreds of thousands of law abiding Muslims in New York City, who are adversely affected by things like this.

    The facts are that the Venezuelan government has been declared in ‘default’ having failed to meet its payments.

    Surely front-page news for the BBC that has lauded Venezuela as a left wing success?

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/6646335.stm

    Nope, the BBC has buried the news under World Latin news, with the title “Venezuela in selective default”.

    No worries, the BBC quotes the head of the Venezuelan commission, Vice-President Tareck El Aissami, as blaming the “sanctions imposed by the United States for Venezuela’s difficulties in making the payments”.

    So, nothing to do with Chavez’s nationalisation program that moved money into the pockets of himself, his family and his friends?
