Midweek Open Thread

 

Just lie back and think of the EU Anna…and don’t worry the BBC’s working on the fix……May out, Corbyn in and Britain’s problems will be over….coz we won’t be ‘Britain’ anymore…..just a region of the EU being milked of its riches to pay for the failed states that only joined to get the freebies…and of course keeping the unelected Eurocrats in the style to which they have become accustomed….and no doubt richly deserve.

If anyone should spot, in the unlikely event that it should occur, any BBC bias propagandising on behalf of the EU superstate please note it here…..tick tock tick tock….Brexit is coming and they’re getting a little bit frantic…..the rules will go out the window and all effort and resources will be targeted at stopping it impartiality be damned….they think themselves untouchable or that Corbyn will ride to the rescue…he might but there will be a price to pay….CBC…..having said that it’s pretty much there already.

Note the bias here….

      “The BBC has supported Mugabe ever since his election to power. You have to remember the history of Rhodesia leading up to its independence and the end of white government assisted by Britains labour loons.

      Harold Wilson forced Ian Smith into his UDI unilateral declaration of independence and Wilson made sure the UN declared sanction against them as a result.

      Such opposition to Labour was never going to be tolerated by the BBC so naturally they naively proceeded on my enemies enemy is my friend basis.
      During the BLiar years when every other country recognised the terror in the country Labour refused to allow White Zimbabwean dispossessed farmers to claim asylum in the UK – unlike every other nationality because Labour HATES white people.

      It should therefore come as no surprise that like every other left in Left Wing Denial, when their schemes come to nought they simply drop them as if its nothing to do with them and let someone else clean up the mess while they get one with wrecking something else !”

        The thing is, having sold its soul to Satan, it made perfect sense for Labour not to allow white Zimbabweans to claim political asylum. What are the chances of white Zimbabweans voting Labour? Close to nil I’d think. All the other refugees and asylum seekers form a reliable voting bloc for Labour, once those postal votes are sorted out.

        When you realise that mass third world immigration is a way for leftist parties to import new voters, it all begins to make sense. Leftists care nothing for the country, its indigenous people of its proud past, all they care about is getting the votes of their third word incomers. That is why a leftist such as Ms Dent Coad thought nothing of launching a foul racist diatribe against a black man who had the temerity to be a Conservative. As far as she was concerned, he was a traitor, so the normal rules do not apply.

        Third world immigration = votes for left wing parties. It’s a simple as that.

    Just watched part 2 of Rick Stein’s ‘Road to Mexico’, a prog about travel and food.
    But the BBC had to spoil it by having USA orange grower saying how he couldn’t pick his crop without Mexican immigrants, and Rick said Cornwall couldn’t manage without European immigrants.
    Aren’t Cornwall always moaning about high unemployment?
    The bloody BBC have got to ruin every prog with their biased politics.

When he was still at College he won the UK National Seafoood Championship after coming second the year before…..

      Also Rick Stein employs mostly migrant labor and has lived mainly in Australia for the last few years….. Everything the BBC puts out these days has an `a-gender` now….. and I expect it to get worse as we get closer to March 2019….. The damage they`re doing to our national interests doesn`t seem to matter to them as they constantly attempt to deride the president of the USA and those who voted for him, they seem to forget that he is in fact the son of a British mother…. Let`s not forget that Churchill was also born to parents of both nations too….. I no longer believe anything the BBC say…

      Bill,
      The USA orange (tangerine) grower was supposedly a former lawyer and so should have realised it’s only illegal immigrants that the Donald wants to ban. So I assume he was only using illegal labour.
      Rick Stein could have pointed that out but didn’t.

      He was actually crying when he kept repeating “it’s just dumb” when referring to the proposed control of illegal immigration. Rick Stein could also have pointed out that we have an MP, Anna Soubry who, along with her mother and daughter also cried their eyes out the morning after the Brexit vote and he thinks she’s pathetic as well.

    Turned on BBC4 to watch Simon Armitage on the trail of Odysseus through the Greek Islands. It was OK, a bit underwhelming given the raw material. Or perhaps I was just seething while trying to relax and enjoy it, after catching two trailers for forthcoming programmes.

    One began with a Carol Ann Duffy “poem” bleating about cathedrals and mosques. The voiceover then STATED that ours was “a divided country” and that our nation was “a work in progress”. Wh-a-at? This kind of insidious assumption and politicising is just sickeningly typical of the BBC. Says who? Why say it?

    But even worse, another glorious trailer for a prog on BBC2 on Monday night: Labour – The Summer that Changed Everything. Voiceover stirring (in all senses) for the excitement that Corbyn’s crowd “won”, images of Momentum style young activists.

    Will any other party get the same breathless puff? Will they heck. Will the BBC report that Labour’s young snowflakes have not a coherent argument between them? Not holding my breath.

    BBC is completely out of control now. No wonder more and more sane and rational people step away from the remote and go and do something less biased instead.

        U2S, Purely anecdotal evidence, but many once faithful BBC listeners and viewers tell me they have indeed switched off. Thinking (knowing) that the BBC puts out rabidly left-wing rubbish is a more and more mainstream view.

        The difficulty is that too many people let the news and views wash over them, and end up with a soggy impression of what they are told, without questioning it. Whereas we are forensic about the language the BBC uses, and the casual assertions.

        It does seem as if the constantly repeated trailers (now even more annoying than ads on commercial channels, because at least there is a clear reason for those) with their repeated drops of BBC poison and division are being used as a kind of subliminal tool. Or have they sent me crazy already??

          The BBC/Guardian axis depends very much on providing a soggy impression of what they churn out. Like so many pseudo intellectuals – the climate change lobby epitomises the group-think – they believe that the majority of their audience is insufficiently bright to effectively analyse and will simply absorb without, as you say, questioning the information.
          Essentially they write and produce to please themselves, basking in one another’s assumed reflected glory.

I have long thought that the BBC blob were more concerned about what their friends and neighbours in West London would say at the next dinner party than they were about broadcasting unpalatable truths. Or even covering certain issues in case the “wrong” picture started to emerge.

            Funny that reporters are saying today about the Old Vic/Spacey scandal that the trouble was hidden for so long because there was a culture that made speaking out against the grain very difficult. Hey, BBC, can you see any parallels here – any at all?

    It’s all getting rather surreal now. Ok, even more surreal.

    There is BBC Media Editor Amol, like an adenoidal East East End cut price Bob Hoskins in tie and braces, podcasting across Twitter and Facebook ‘what is pretty clear’ (to him, based mainly on ‘belief’) about reds under the bed and how awful it is to try and sway other countries.

    And he is getting a tsunami of mostly polite factual correction, counter view and apparent actual news to him back, which he and the BBC are dealing with by the time honoured BBC tactic of ignoring it and telling their BS yet again, often enough, using a £4bpa propaganda machine.

    So far, so normal, if still venal.

    But the weird part is the BBC Kool Aid Chorus line who, despite being handed facts and links, also simply ignore it all and churn out mantras about pet boogey topics to rousing ‘Amens’ from the cheap seats.

    And if cornered, ‘bot!’ seems now the new ‘racist!’, as pod people channel their linguistically lean Katty Kay ‘debating’ points.

    Same with the ongoing Persian saga, with new, earlier context emerging, and more positive signs from the FoSec and hapless husband working together to get the woman released.

    Yet all the BBC and its groupies seem capable of is yet more ‘Fire Boris’ pitchfork editorial and firebrand Twitter mob chorus in support, seemingly totally oblivious to anything other than their nasty, narrow focuses.

    The BBC and its audience really do deserve each other, but it beats me why the rest of the country has to pay for it, in financial and other costly ways.

    Australia has just voted ‘Yes’ to gay marriage in a postal survey. The NYC Empire State building lit up in rainbow colours as a celebration. Can I assume BBC headquarters has been similarly illuminated?

    The vote was 62% ‘Yes’ to 38% ‘No’. However, there was a 73.9% ‘Hell, no!’ from a large ethnically enriched district of my city, Sydney. It includes the strongly Islamic suburb of Auburn. I fear some left-liberal heads may explode at the realisation that their favourite groups aren’t best pals.

    Our media, celebrities and politicians have pushed this cause relentlessly, and are now orgasmic. ( I think the only one to put the alternative view noticeably was a pilot who created ‘Vote no!’ in sky-writing over Sydney.)

    The celebs didn’t have it all their own way, however. The CEO of Qantas airways, Alan Joyce, came out in favour of ‘marriage equality’. An opponent shoved a lemon meringue pie in his face at a public meeting. Every TV news station showed a spluttering Joyce wiping lemon curd from his glasses and spitting out egg white.

    A female colleague made a really snide comment yesterday.

    “I don’t like paying for anything. That’s what men are for.”

    Women may be judged on their looks, but they judge men on how much they earn. It explains the problem of millions of men just checking out of society to play computer games et cetera; as well as the high suicide rate amongst men. They know that if they do not have money, attractive women will not be interested in them; they might as well have no penis. This is a massive, growing problem about which ‘equalities’ professionals are silent, preferring instead to discuss gender pronouns and imagined ‘phobias.’

    I note how many feminists who whine publicly about the ‘pay gap’ are married to high-earning men. Don’t they feel oppressed having all that extra money coming into their joint bank accounts? Why not marry a road sweeper, would that not be the ultimate sign of female empowerment – to proudly say you earn ten times what your husband earns? And why don’t the female superheroes rescue these sad and isolated men? Buy them dinner and fancy man bags, sweep them off their feet like a female Dr Who?

    Of course none of that will ever happen, which shows what dishonest garbage modern feminism is.

    This goes direct to the most fundamental interest of the British people: their ability to work and buy stuff in a viable economy. And Corbyn’s obvious intent to do a Venuzuela should be the biggest news story on a 24/7 loop.

    But from the BBC…..crickets.

    Don’t they realize that they and their children will suffer too? What is it stupidity, blindness?

      What, the BBC did not report on Venezuela going bust? Impossible!

      And they are always so keen to cover Corbyn, surely they would like to remind us exactly what he said about Venezuela and socialism instead of leaving it to a helpful Conservative Party video:
      “There is a different and a better way of doing things. It’s called socialism, and it’s something that Venezuela has made a big step towards.”

      Now compare what Corbyn said with what President Trump said back in September during his address to the UN:

      In case you don’t wish to view the video, this is the killer sentence: “The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented.”

      Trump has absolutely trumpled Corbyn on this one!

We owe the money to the Iranians apparently…maybe we should give it, on behalf of the apologetic Iranians, to the Americans instead…as compensation for their embassy and the year the staff spent as hostages?

      Always amazes me when the talking heads demand we put diplomatic pressure on Iran, this will solve it they say…..a regime that took the US embassy and continues to snub its nose at the world as it secretly develops nuclear weapons and which armed and supported the Taliban and AQ in Iraq and Afghanistan? Yep….they’ll take a lot of notice of Boris trotting over there……only if they think it is in their interest, and they will decide that.

      Chukka Ummoommo, that towering intellect of the Labour party, always says “I am not going to blame immigrants” when asked about the impact of uncontrolled mass immigration on demand for housing.
      Turning what is essentially a matter of arithmetic into a moral issue is simply obfuscation. Chukka is not bright enough to have thought of this as a rhetorical tactic so, like the Hackney Hippo whose grasp of numbers is rudimentary, he probably does not understand what net annual immigration of 300,000 means.
      Big number + big number = big number. If you cut immigration you still have “big number” so Chukka arithmetic tells you cutting immigration won’t have any effect at all.
      No one ever includes the capital cost of providing housing for immigrants in the cost/benefit analysis.

If there is no effect on any of these vital functions, then surely all new houses can only be given to British Nationals, all hospital beds and doctors’ appointments should only be given to British nationals and all new school places should only be given to the children of British nationals.

          If there is no effect on any of these by immigration then the needs of the immigrants are being dealt with by other means, clearly.

    I see the bBbc are labelling the shenanigans in Zimbabwe as the ‘Zimbabwe Crisis’.

    If I can muster any real interest I might delve deeper, but I wonder in what way the situation in this country is any more critical than usual. I also can’t help but notice the concerned tone being used in reporting matters in a country usually reported about with a shrug of resignation and without the contempt it deserves, especially when dealing with the issues of the murder of whites and the obvious corruption in politics. Are we supposed to have some sort of sympathy for Robert Mugabe?

    Plenty of real crises bBbc, perhaps without so many opportunities for hypothetical supposition, such as Yemen and Myanmar which could be more honestly reported without attempting to sensationalise a situation which is at the minute a constitutional matter in a pariah state.

      But it IS a crisis-if you`re the BBC that is.
      Don`t forget the lefty drop down menu that makes mountains out of phrases like “lone wolf” “mental issues” etc. And-of course “alleged” and “so called”( as in Islamic State/Daesh etc). So when the Zimbabwe army tell the BBC that “this is NOT a coup…repeat NOT a coup”?
      then the BBCs heads are utterly scrambled.

      Dare we say other?…do we say it is? What`s a coup as opposed to revolution, or a Spring, an incident or an exuberant gathering of veterans for example?
      Hence the BBCs repeated meltdowns and verbiage that clearly says it`s not what it looks like-but it looks like a coup, as we remember Pinochet and Jack Straw.
      As always-it`s all about the BBC and its perpetual narrative, Harare is just the backdrop and theatre of dreams for them. Fake News and nobbled commentary that fails to fit what the BBC are sure it all is. Collars and cuffs don`t match-sound and vision in contention.
      The BBC are confused-as they were with Trumps tweet where he said that Kim was NOT short and fat, but the BBC said that he`d said that…utter confusuion, blame the Russkis. The BBC used to do journalism once.
      My Coup-ca-choo…one of Alvins best.
      And Alvin compared to Elvis 68 is very much what the BBC now is to real news.
      Enjoy the laughter and untied shoelaces and Brian Rix farces as they scramble to the whirlybirds…a joke I tells ya!
      A queasy ride again for the BBC flagships that are only pedalos. Their sea sickness comes when they`re unbalanced and unhinged-what they see on the horizon does not match what they`re feeling in their water.
      I`d have said “in their guts” if they had any.

    He was elated when Mugabe took over. Thrilled! Then, what A SURPRISE!!! Things went bad. There were no hints, of course: not the bayoneting of nuns, the murder of civilians, the lust for power, etc. None of these things were clues of what was to come. It took the Matabele massacre to cause one sleepy Hainian eyelid to pop open slightly.
    After all, Mugabe was a Christian Marxist! He had said so himself, innit? Good enough, what? All decent chaps, those Bolsheviks. After all, they say they are, so they must be! And chucking Whitey out, why that was another big plus. The other Hainian eyelid only popped open when what was left of whitey got chucked off the land and the breadbasket turned into a basket case.
    But Hain is a BBC favourite, wheeled out on every possible occasion, to bless us with his wisdom. Is he saying anything about the RACIST Zuma taking South Africa the same way as Zimbabwe? Well, with two sleepy socialist eyelids now open, he HAS spotted some money-laundering. But the targets are essentially British companies and British based banks. Musn’t say anything about Zuma of ‘Kill the Boer, kill the farmer’ singing fame. Or the brutal murder and torture of thousands of farmers since ’94. Or the massive corruption going on in SA – the ‘State captutre’?
    Could these not be teensy-weensy clues? A tiny little hint of another breadbasket in danger of becoming a basket case? Two little eyelids popping wide open at the thought that Zimbabwe might hold a lesson? Naw, after all another great freedom fighter will take over in Zim. One E Managagwa, also of Zanu PF. Proving democracy works.
    And as for SA, we’ve done ‘No scrum with a racist bum’ and dropped flour bombs onto rugby fields. Surely that’s enough? And isn’t SA full of freedom fighters? Busy liberating and liberating. Malema on the bonnet of his Mercedes proclaiming: ‘Kill the whites, but not yet!’ What lovely chaps they are. No hate speech there. Nothing for anyone in ermine to worry about.

    After all, Mugabe was a Christian Marxist! He had said so himself, innit? Good enough, what? All decent chaps, those Bolsheviks. After all, they say they are, so they must be! And chucking Whitey out, why that was another big plus. The other Hainian eyelid only popped open when what was left of whitey got chucked off the land and the breadbasket turned into a basket case.
    But Hain is a BBC favourite, wheeled out on every possible occasion, to bless us with his wisdom. Is he saying anything about the RACIST Zuma taking South Africa the same way as Zimbabwe? Well, with two sleepy socialist eyelids now open, he HAS spotted some money-laundering. But the targets are essentially British companies and British based banks. Musn’t say anything about Zuma of ‘Kill the Boer, kill the farmer’ singing fame. Or the brutal murder and torture of thousands of farmers since ’94. Or the massive corruption going on in SA – the ‘State captutre’?
    Could these not be teensy-weensy clues? A tiny little hint of another breadbasket in danger of becoming a basket case? Two little eyelids popping wide open at the thought that Zimbabwe might hold a lesson? Naw, after all another great freedom fighter will take over in Zim. One E Managagwa, also of Zanu PF. Proving democracy works.
    And as for SA, we’ve done ‘No scrum with a racist bum’ and dropped flour bombs onto rugby fields. Surely that’s enough? And isn’t SA full of freedom fighters? Busy liberating and liberating. Malema on the bonnet of his Mercedes proclaiming: ‘Kill the whites, but not yet!’ What lovely chaps they are. No hate speech there. Nothing for anyone in ermine to worry about.

      Ah yes. The exalted Peter Hain. There was a time when I actually thought that he was one of the good guys. However since the onset of my “insanity” I have begun to think. Apparently, according to Saint Pete, it was quite legitimate for a black man to want to rid HIS country of whites but it is now totally unacceptable for a white man to want to rid HIS country of blacks. I can’t help but see this as racism on his part and I’m wondering now if maybe it is not me that is insane after all but that Mr Hain is a self hating white man who could benefit from a trip to the local psychiatrist.

      Wasn’t it Hain, who once said that Western civilization hadn’t produced anything of value?

        I don’t know but in my opinion that charge could certainly be leveled at him. That is unless preventing a cricket match is considered something of value.

    It is inevitable that the BBC will cover this as the smirking left wing press already has.

    Tommy Robinson has lost his ‘blue tick’ on Twitter which has apparently been withdrawn from people the left wing hate propaganda site consider ‘right wing’.

    This is how the BBC currently view the blue tick:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/article/36835158/anyone-can-now-get-twitters-prestigious-blue-tick

    What they won’t tell you is that the Saudi Prince Alwaleed currently under arrest for suspected fraud has a massive stake in Twitter (as well as Murdochs News Corp) and those investments come with the caveat that Islam is promoted and criticism is not allowed.

    So it appears that Twitter is acting in compliance with its owners, because as Tommy Robinson pointed out, that they have removed his blue tick, yet have not removed it from known Muslim terrorists.

    Quelle Surprise !

      \\ So basically the blue tick is to verify that you hold the approved opinions – ?//
      Twitter laughing stock, cos people will be able to point at Lib/left who have tweeted antisemitism/racism yet still have white tick

      Now TWO TIER free speech
      – lib/left get white tick protecting them from impersonation
      – none-lib nationalists denied similar protection

    Earlier I was watching a BBC News person talking about the “housing crisis” & the reasons for it, all the while I’m silently shouting “why not mention immigration?”
    I have just now come across a quote from Bertrand Russell who, not surprisingly, puts it more elequently

    “thought is not free if all the arguments on one side of a controversy are perpetually presented as attractively as possible, while the arguments on the other side can only be discovered by diligent search.”

      Saudi say they want moderate Islam.

      Turkey says moderate Islam does not exist.

      Saudi (Islam Sunni) are fighting Iran (Islam Shia) in Yemen (56% Sunni Muslim and Shia muslim 44%).

      The above does not link Islam with Peace when looking at the Majority Muslim Countries.

      – We need to stop using the term Religion of Peace, even in irony. Can Hindus now claim the title ‘Religion of Peace’?

        These figures are based on what? Hindus have killed 2,050? What about all the Axis troops killed during the Second World War by Hindu soldiers. And I’m pretty sure that Catholic soldiers in the First and Second World Wars must have killed quite a few Axis troops, as well. Just referring to this to show that the figures aren’t exactly kosher. And why no mention of Protestants?
        And even though I hae me doots about Islam being the religion of peace, 600 million seems a bit on the high side. The figures couldn’t have come from a pro-Hindu, anti-Moslem source, could they?

      Isn’t that somewhat of a loaded question? “Most likely to turn to” is bound to be the BBC given is ubiquity and the print media being varied & to be paid for (payment for the BBC being made just so you have a use for the screen in the parlour)

        I see what you are saying – ONE source you trust the most – but surely to have a good idea of what is being said and to compare you would go to multiple sources.

        Are the statistics broken down by by political allegiance? Interesting that 6% said NONE!

      I have an idea that graphic may be the BBC being the devious BBC again in that the figure for themselves comes from Cardiff University Journalistic studies, which works hand in hand with them. The other figures are taken from another survey altogther. I am saying this because it has been flagged up before when they tried this stunt.

        Also, the question is carefully worded:

        Of all the news sources (TV broadcaster, radio, newspaper, magazine or website), which ONE source
        are you most likely to turn to for news you trust the most?

        People will obviously go to their newspaper of choice, ie the one they regularly read, thus the broadsheets, which have low readership levels, will get very low marks. 75% of people in the UK get their news from the BBC, so they will turn to the BBC for news, giving the BBC high levels.
