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….

    They are supposed to be investigating false claims in the Canary that Laura Kuensberg was to speak on platform as part of the Conservative Conference
    .. but then it turns out 2 of the Impress panel had tweeted Mad conspiracy stuff about her being a government propagandist.

    Confusion over Zimbabwean parties’ social media accounts {bbc.co.uk 16nov2017}
    “Many media outlets, including the BBC, reported posts by the unverified Twitter account @zanu_pf which claims to be “the only official handle” for the Zanu-PF party.”

      Perhaps some psychologist in academia could do a study on this strange behaviour, i.e. we used to be bothered about family, friends, neighbours and countrymen in that order yet ‘Grenfell’ has seen that concern reversed, it was a supreme tragedy because it wasn’t about ‘us’.

      ‘Loyal listeners’ of More Or Less will recall that their ‘Grenfell’ story was unique in having ‘sad’ background music throughout the item.

    BBC Radio 4 PM Mair has read out the list of the dead of Grenfell tower, nearly every one of them a Muslim and some of the names so alien to the British tongue that even Mair with the ultra PC BBC coaching had some difficulty pronouncing.

    There was of course not a single comment about the number of clearly migrant populace dead and yet it was extremely striking.

    No wonder then that the Fascists have taken this disaster as their own, if it had been white people, which they HATE so much they would probably have been throwing the survivors back in.
    Alas that May immediately caved to all their demands thank God she wasn’t ever a PM at a time of crisis like in the past.

    What’s that? Hitler has invaded Poland and Corbyn is calling for us to turn a blind eye to any criminality, yes of course we’ll ignore it all, peace at any price.

    I happened to hear an interview on Today this morning with some Guardian hack who has written a book about President Trump’s “links to Russia”.

    It sounded like a real cut & paste job, no actual research, just a rehash of the Democrat Party’s hit job re “Russian hacking” and the Pissgate Dossier they bought and paid for.

    Naturally, the hack was listened to respectfully, with no interruptions or searching questions. You can always tell when an interviewee agrees with every prejudice of the BBC hive, they forget entirely that they are meant to “interview” the person.

    Obviously, there was no-one on to counter any of the tired and, I would say, false arguments put forward by the Guardianista. There mustn’t have been a single person available in the entire world willing to put up a case defending President Trump. Maybe Sebastian Gorka’s phone is out of order, or then again, perhaps the pathetic Beeboid scum got tired of him handing them their arses time after time.

    I don’t get £4 billion a year in taxpayers’ money, I don’t get paid £700,000 a year. But even I know that the DNC refused to let the FBI examine their computer server, but instead had it examined by a private company called Crowdstrike. And even I know that the DNC and Hillary Clinton funnelled over $10 million through a law firm to another company called Fusion GPS, which paid for the ex-MI6 spy Mr Steele to go to Moscow and write down every rumour that several million dollars will buy. Oh yes, and that Donald Trump Jr’s “secret meeting” with a “Kremlin connected lawyer” actually took place in Trump Tower, and turned out to be with a lawyer trying to get the Magnitsky Act overturned.

    The thing is, I rather think the Beeboid interviewer knew all this too, but that’s not the party line, which is that Trump is an evil, deranged, puppet of Putin, who must be impeached. And that’s the thing with the BBC; you don’t get the truth, you get the party line.

    Now over to our friend Max for some examples of right wing bias on the BBC…

      The allegation is that Trump colluded with the Russians, who interfered in the US election by facilitating the revelation of authentic emails that were sent from / to members of the Clinton campaign.

      Yet again Al Beeb failed to quote or even describe what was actually said in those emails that would have gone down so badly with US voters.

      Surely whoever was involved in bringing these emails to light – Russians or anyone else – did US voters a favour?

        Maxincony,

        Have you heard the phrase ‘ vampire octopus ‘ used before as it is a new one on me.

        I think Al meant to say squid instead of octopus, as vampire squid is a derogatory term used to describe global mega-banks, but most frequently Goldmans, and I have heard that used, I think it’s pretty common in the financial media.

        It was first used by an American journalist called Matt Taibbi in a ‘ Rolling Stone ‘ article in 2009, it’s all to do with their grasping, strangling and bloodthirsty business methods, it’s not a term connected to their cultural or religious origins. That picture seems much earlier and looks like anti Jewish propaganda, I don’t honestly think it’s relevant here.

        Anyway, it’d be silly to use the comparative term ‘ vampire octopus ‘ on purpose as there’s no such thing, but there is a species known as a vampire squid that is found in American coastal waters. Someone from Boston like Taibbi could well have heard of it.

        Saw a ‘ River Monsters ‘ about them recently. Nasty little bastards, feeds on detritus in the dark, no real threat to anyone. Not like Goldman Sachs.

        Still, easy mistake to make.

          I disagree ‘Rich’; I think Al meant to say “fluffy little kittens” instead of “octopus” (probably, as you say, just a slip of the tongue) and it’s entirely coincidental he mistakenly used a popular anti-semitic trope to describe the Jewish banking dynasty, Goldman Sachs.

          Such an easy mistake to make…

            I didn’t see Judaism mentioned in Al’s post just Goldman Sachs and I’ve never heard of the octopus used like this. Can’t imagine it’s popular as you say though unless you’re of a certain mindset which sadly seems to be gaining momentum in some quarters. I suppose it’s up to you how you interpret things.

            Rich is my name you don’t need to use the inverted commas, not everyone may agree with what I say, but I’ve no problem taking responsibility for my comments and, if someone has a better argument, accepting theirs.

            “Up2snuff November 16, 2017 at 3:23 pm
            That premier news organisation, that gets everything totally & scrupulously correct all the time (maxincony, where are you?) has been telling me at regular intervals from summer 2016 onward that EU workers have been leaving the UK in droves since the result of the EU Referendum was known.”

            Would you care to apologise for the obvious BBC errors (some might call them lies) now revealed by the latest employment statistics?

            And would you care to apologise to Alan for your personal attack over what you considered to be an inaccurate post that was later verified, the tragic murder of the Altrincham surgeon?

            Look on this as a BOGOF offer, maxi. A real opportunity for you to acquire something of value, a bargain.

              Still, I congratulate you on your knowledge of ancient political posters from the 20s and 30s. They are often so very useful when seeking to trip up someone who uses the word “octopus” instead of “squid”.

          Advertisers. English football, especially the English Premiership draws in huge numbers of supporters and interest both at home and abroad.

          This is all part of the drip drip drip transformation of English and British institutions (of which sporting institutions have a large following) to act as flagships for cultural change with the introduction of what are called “progressive” values. Schools and Universities have already been taken over, now it is the turn for English Sport.

        Alicia, I started to consider football corrupt some time before various revelations were made by players, campaigners, journalists, etc..

        It is a sport that at the higher levels takes excessive amounts of money from people, many of whom are on low incomes, and hands vast amounts to groups of individuals who pay relatively little tax on their incomes (and even seek to reduce those liabilities via legal but perhaps aggressive avoidance or even illegal evasion) and enjoy a great deal of continual lauding and interest by the media, some (many?) politicians and, of course, much of the general public.

        Remind you of any other organisation … ?

        It is no surprise to me that the gloss is wearing off football in the UK.

    The BBC’S news at 6PM has a had a theme on diversity this week. This evening it was a bit of a circus
    because one of the features was on a bearded lady. It made me think that wouldn’t it be a good idea to
    have a bearded lady being the presenter of the news. Now wouldn’t that be diversity and positive
    discrimination!! It shouldn’t be too much of a challenge for you, diversity department at the BBC.
    So then we went on to the Londonistan Programme with Assad Ahmed. It started by showing us a
    room of women which could of been taken in Rabat , Morroco . But this was at a meeting
    of Moroccan women who were survivors from the disaster of Grenfell Tower. Apparently a lot of
    the poor people who perished in Grenfell Tower were Moroccan’s. I didn’t know that. We then had
    the nightly political broadcast on behalf of the Remoaners, in the guise of Peter Mandelson. I don,t
    know who the editors of the programme are going to get tomorrow night.
    I just don’t know how the BBC is going to present the World Cup in the frame of mind they are in now,
    Teams of men , will be playing teams of men and all of them will be wearing shorts. Perhaps they should have
    a lady pundit with a beard in the studio with Gary Lineker. Or better still taking the place of Gary.

    It’s the ex editor of the Gay Times .

    I couldn’t believe they would go all the way to six o clock talking to this person , whatever he’d done , unless it was to wheedle out of him where he’d hidden the bodies or stashed the cash .

    Just watching Celebrity Antiques Road Trip (yes, I know), and one of the participants is the insufferable Ore Odube, – what an embarrassment the man is, he’s so awful I cant stop watching !!!! never failing to mention he’s the Strictly Champion, and even offered to give an antique shop owner 17 dance lessons for a reduction in price – she was not impressed. He’s competing against the trim but dim Joanne Clifton. Good job she has work as a dancer, cos she’d struggle as anything else. Dumbing down at its best.

    The other day half in jest I mentioned that the Uk government would be sending relief to Iran for their excellent earthquake in order to save borisavich career. How wrong i was – it wasn’t relief – it was half a billion dollars?? Worth of money we owed them since 1979. That’s not bad to save one politicians lousy career and getting a spy released on humanitarian grounds ( non existent illness).

    On the upside at least we won’t have hear her husband bleating on after seeing his wife off to that lovely country – eye ran.

      Fedup – Its always the same
      These bleeding hearts/idiots go to these places that they know they shouldnt – then get kidnaped/imprisoned and the British Government then have the problem of having to sort the problem out. I remember a situation back in the 1990s when a couple of girls got busted in – I think Malaysia or similair for smuggling drugs. John Major flew straight out and returned a tabloid hero having got them released. Personally I would have let them stay incarcerated as a warning to other UK idiots, that these countries (unlike the UK) have laws that have to be respected.
      These people are like a load of naughty kids who trespass into a farmers field with a “beware of the bull sign” They get chased and injured by the bull and everyone blames the farmer not the kids or their parents for allowing their offspring to think that trespassing is ok. Sorry but if you put our head into the crocodiles mouth – why act surprised when it snaps shut.
      We certainly seem to be in the age of the permachild. Act how you want because mummy will always sort it out.

    A manager at the BBC, who Maitland describes as decent and would have made a competent teacher, was on a salary of half a million quid. He retired on £300,000 per annum plus a redundancy payment of £1 million pound.

          The first lady is a role model for women’s social and intellectual progression, while the second lady is a role model for those wishing to identify women to fannies.

          Now that I have answered your question, maybe you could now answer a question from me? Without giving away your identity – can you tell us whether or not you work, or have worked for the BBC? It seems to me that either you work of have worked for the BBC or that you have some personal vendetta against David Vance and his various projects.

              Maxincony: “Erm, no; she was used purely as a propaganda tool for an oppressive soviet regime

              So you think that anyone that achieved distinction under the Soviet Union should not be applauded for their achievements but lambasted for being tools of the country of their birth? So you think that the science and engineering undertaken within the Soviet Union and the scientists and engineers that worked under that system, are entirely without individual merit?

              The level of your thinking here I find astounding. It seems to show that you think in terms of broad stereotype and prejudice – a feature of someone of limited intellectual ability.

              So clearly you don’t even get the point when it is explained carefully to you – and we can see this is due to your inviolable stereotypical and prejudicial thinking that says that space science and engineering of the soviet union was entirely without merit for the reason that it came from the soviet union – because everything that came from the soviet union must have been bad because it was an oppressive regime.

              This tells me you are neither knowledgeable in science nor knowledgeable in engineering. It is also just a very low standard of thinking. Of course a low standard of thinking does not exclude from having gone to university.

      Fake news is constructed by the BBC by censoring most of the facts to produce a fake narrative.
      This is used by the BBC to produce a Misleading headline.
      The alternative facts produced by the BBC are not facts but assumptions and speculation. This is so that these fake facts cannot be proven to be false because they are in fact, not facts but disinformation in the form of assumptions and speculation.
      Possible future actions against the BBC are Judicial Reviews and legal action, but the only date I have been given by my sources is this Monday. But the BBC has been told that legal action is due on Monday, so the BBC may produce deflecting propaganda on that day, so the legal action could be delayed until the BBC is taken off guard.

      These actions against the BBC are due.
      (1) Legal action from OFCOM.
      (2) Legal action from Cliff Richard.
      (3) Legal action from Nigel Farage.
      (4) A Judicial Review of the BBC,s currant Anti-Brexit policy.
      (5) A Judicial Review of the BBC,s Climate Science Censorship policy.
      (6) Revelations about the investigations by the secret services into a murderous Paedophile ring at the BBC.

      It looks like the BBC is undergoing a massive increase in complaints, caused by the BBC refusing to apologise for fake news stories about Russia, Trump, Sexual abuse, Project Fear, a Brexit hate crime incident, its climate science censorship policy and many other complaints about fake news on the BBC.

    Toady watch

    The outgoing head girl had a chat with some kraut from their cbi or similar who naturally decided exiting the Eu was a bad thing. They got to talking about money. It seems that the EU initially only demanded £6000 000 000 bribe but was not dropping it to £5000 000 000 made up of the original £2000 000 000 which May has offered and then maybe £1000 000 000 each year for the two year extension – bringing it down to only a 40 billion pound exit fee or bribe. Bargain.
    Any that’s we’re the chat ended. No discussion of the source of this demand – no discussion on the effect on our economy – nope – the chat stopped there and they switched to wimmin in space – and the off switch.

    Earlier that fool – frank gardiner – sounded incredulous that Christian Coptic s subject to murder by Islam were turning the other cheek for real – as they say. Frank made it sound like Christianity was a foreign concept to him rather than being the State religion – the same State as his employer. Al Beeb must be about to do a big thing on Islam ( for a change..) if they spend even 5 minutes talking About Islamic attacks on Christian churches.

      “When someone died, they didn’t even bury the dead, they just would leave the body in the forest.
      Now their life has meaning and direction.” //

      He would not have used the words “gods and goddesses”.
      I’m guessing it’s a poor translation from the original Indonesian.
      In English it’s confusing cos we use god as a word for Allah or The God

    Both funded by the taxpayer.
    Taxpayers who earn over 23k per year begin contributing to the National pot. Those earning less than 23k receive benefits of some kind.

        Personally I would much prefer cutting foreign aid going to developing countries for circus skills training for blind hand amputees and similair and use this to help the kids (and why not adults in need too) rather than letting “charity works” being yet another reason to justify supporting this bloated, dishonest and treacherous organisation.

        I may well be a “miserable bastard” But I like to support the charities that I believe in rather than the ones the BBC tell me I should. As for Pudsey I would sell him to China for bear bile extraction and with any luck Chris Evans would be occupying the costume as the jet lands at Bejing International airport.

    What a contrast.
    BBC London showcases the 30th anniversary of the Kings Cross fire, which killed 31.
    The focus was on learned experience to prevent future incidents.

    Contrast that with Grenfell Tower.
    The focus is on ‘greedy Tory council’ (conveniently forgetting the £8million+ only just spent on renovations) and ‘justice for Grenfell’ (whatever that actually means) not to mention the thousands of ‘traumatised ‘ residents.

    What a truly pathetic country the snowflake lovers have let us become.

    A couple of other points
    1. Apparently Grenfell Tower used to be colloquially known as Morrocco Tower, and last night on BBC London we saw coverage to prove it, of a women’s meeting. All non-white, all wearing, shallwe say Muslim attire. Multicultural? Err, monocultural I think. But crucially it was non Anglo Saxon, so its OK in bBBC land.

    We all know people often possess the ashes of departed relatives – I recall an episode of Only Fools and Horse where the plot revolved around Delboy, that loveable Cockney wheeler dealer’s, deceased grandmother’s ahes.

    Then again there is the famous England Australia cricket trophy – legend tells us the tiny vase for which the two nations compete in a series of test matches contains the ashes of some ancient burned cricket stumps.

    The notion that national sports teams might play for the ownership of some “Men’s” or maybe “Man’s Ashes” seems somewhat unpleasant if not abhorent.

    I have heard of a novel titled “Angela’s Ashes” by Frank McCourt. The fictionalised memoir of an Irish American family, it received critical acclaim and won literary awards. However, some were concerned the book exaggerated the family’s impoverished upbringing.

    Wiki tells me : McCourt’s own mother had denied the accuracy of his stories shortly before her death in 1981, shouting from the audience during a stage performance of his and his brother Malachy’s recollections that it was “all a pack of lies.”

    Angela’s Ashes – perhaps a fitting title for what the BBC wants to call The Women’s Ashes

      AISI – Read this book years ago on of the first of the “misery genre” One of those books I thought would be good because of the hype. I persevered because I thought it would get better – but it didnt. All in all a total waste of my time. I didnt even charity shop it afterwards – I put it straight in the bin feeling that humanity would be far better served that way.

    So much EU concern over the border between the EU and Northern Ireland. This from those who simply encouraged the third World to invade Europe by passing through their borders without any checks thus facilitating the ongoing destruction of Europe.

      Good question …. does the EU want a border or not?

      Production Credits .. “Europe without borders” @ 1:31

      “I really do need you” – Recipent
      “Thank you. And long live Europe.” – Refugee
      “Europe protects its borders (by opening them up). Europe welcomes refugees (without consent of the European people). What about you? (are you good tor evil?)” – fairy

      – Which is it ‘Europe protects its borders’ or ‘Europe without borders’?

        Marky – EU only wants borders when it suits them. They get away with this in the UK because they know that the EU propaganda Dissemination Corporation (otherwise known as the BBC) for some strange reason only seems to be stirred if they think they can damage the “leave” cause. Obvious policy contradictions like this by the EU are obviously very difficult for the BBC to detect. I suppose they must be concentrating on much higher levels of thinking (macron style)

    BBC causes even more outrage over the sleeping staff in the newsroom by making jokes about it.

    BTW did you know that the staff in the news room are paid an astonishing £450 per shift ? An astonishing £115 000 per anum? No wonder the licence fee is so bloody high !

    Now there are calls for a commons debate into the story – not that it will go anywhere with we haven’t got a clue what to do in charge though.

      ‘Outrage’ is true tabloid territory, if also embraced often by the BBC. Ironically.

      At least Emily is on parity now, quip-compo wise.

      Be funny if Jr. also petitions hapless Hall to be on the same wedge as Mum and colleagues for his polling expertise, which surely can only be destined for quoting soon by BBC Press Office and the next Boom! from Rob Burley.

    Behind a paywall.

    The independently minded, sports reporter, Matt Dickenson has questioned the decision to sack Mark Sampson.

    Had you read the Guardian or watched the BBC at the time, you’d know Mark Sampson is a racist bigot and a bully. His career has been been destroyed and the left will certainly ensure he never again wins gainful employment . And I’ll just point out he was actually sacked because of a previous relationship, not because of any of the Eni Aluko/BBC complaints.

    Sampson was accused by Eni Aluko, an England woman football player of racist remarks. She had over twenty complaints of racism, of which they nearly all found to be nonsense. However, Sampson did say “F**k off Ani” after she lost the ball once and apparently didn’t meet Ani’s brother after a match. He also used a mock Caribbean voice to her.

    She made the racist protests after she was pulled from the team. However, she was dropped because the other players in the team didn’t like her attitude. It was apparently difficult to find anyone to room with her.

    More fake news from the BBC.

      It’s also worth noting that the ‘earlier’ transgression for which he lost his job, was known to the football authorities when they hired him…AND it was a transgression for which he had already been penalised.

      I hope that the FA have got good lawyers – they’ll need them.

      I also note that the BBC, was despairing that Aluko still hadn’t made it back into the England team…but how do they expect her to be re-integrated when as the Telegraph reported, she criticised her fellow players following what was to be Sampson’s final match in charge;

      Telegraph: ”Chelsea forward Aluko was angry that Nikita Parris led her team-mates to the bench to celebrate with Sampson after scoring the opening goal in England’s 6-0 win over Russia in their opening Women’s World Cup qualifier at Prenton Park…She posted on Twitter: “For the most together team in the world, tonight’s ‘message’ only shows a level of disrespect that represents division and selfish action.”.”

      Since that only includes big PAYE earners, it misses out a large chunk of the BBC top earners and their money, as they earn it via production companies
      … Bet the top gear woman makes good money , never mind Anne Robinson’s £40m.

    What a classic moment at the end of the BBC 1 news at 6 pm.
    They had been talking about the celebrity antics of Children in Need and some event where women could dress up in period costume to meet Aiden Turner, dressed up as Poldark.
    Cue swooning. Fiona Bruce and Louise Lear then, well, leered, wishing it could happen to them. Phoarhhhh.
    Now personally I have no problem with this.
    But just imagine if it had been a male newsreader and male weather forecaster discussing the merits of an attractive female. There would be apoplexy. Outrage. Male chauvinist dinosaurs. Wimmin’s equality groups going ballistic. Resignations would certainly be required, after a full enquiry, of course.

    The BBC. World class in hypocrisy.
