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….

    Taking another hit for the team, I’ve been listening to ‘The Now Show.’
    Obviously massively biased to the metro trendy left. Sneering comments (they probably class them as jokes) aplenty about Boris, D Davis, Treezer and Trump . Even a song about Trump and Kim Jong-Un called ‘Two peas in a pod’.
    I take it these sophisticated jokesters have spent time in the free US and also spent time in the slave labour camp of North Korea which allows their super intelligent brains to conclude that these political systems are similar in some way.
    Actually the thing that pees me off the most about this despicable show is not the virtue signalling, box ticking trendy metro leftism, apallling though that is. The worst thing is that it is totally UNFUNNY.


    • Nibor says:

      I listened to Alexie Sayless yesterday and it was the same . I mean ,it was the same . Anti Trump , progressive good and NOT FUNNY .

      But I think those of us here can cash in on the gullible left wing audience . We know what the whooping , cheering , clapping retarded BBC audience thinks is funny , and can undercut the lefty overpaid right on arrogant humourless BBC scriptwriters and give the cretins in the studios all the laughs their tribal brains can absorb . Then sell the same material for the next night .

      So here’s a taster for a whole season on two consecutive nights .

      Trump is a moron . My old grandmother has Alzheimer’s and does not know what day it is and .. [ pause here to show you are laughing inwardly to give message to studio audience in case they are as stupid as they sound ] .. Nor Does Theresa May . [ wait for clapping and cheering to die down ] . Mind you at least [insert latest person who the left hate] knows what he’s doing with all the cash that [ insert dubious to lefts eyes business practise ] he’s acquired .
      Now have a guest singer who is not melodious but can shout a good lefty song .
      Then a few more jokes against Trump , old people , lower but aspiring middle class people [ the petit bourgeois ] a racist person [ preferably white and male. ] , people who voted for Trump or UKIP , and Mugabe if he is out of power to show all round balance .
      Then Marcos Brigstocke to tell who he hates [very funny in BBC land] .
      Then a few more of the same .. Brexit is rubbish , democracy is rubbish , normal people are rubbish .
      Then bow out with the sneering we here are all clever , more whoops and cheering from the mass hysterical audience , see you next week [ next day for most it would seem ] . Goodbye .


    • Fedup2 says:

      Funny how sons of the ruling class such as one of the now show types – son of a bishop earn a living from kidult empty attempts at funnies .

      And brigstocke is the son of a banker – which is at least one down from bitch . Think he might have personal issues too

      The BBBC have a 67% news market share.
      But are only trusted by 57%.

      Maybe not quite the unmitigated success suggested ! Despite all the billions.

    I’ve mentioned this in the past, but the money fest that is Children in Need began in 1980. So, many of the kids helped back then would be in their early 40’s or thereabouts and probably have kids/grandkids who are today’s Children in Need, 37 years later; unless of course the ‘originals’ were helped so much they went on to Yuni, forged a career in the City, and ended up as the Planner/Organiser of this year’s Children in Need !

    I suppose after 37 years the original playbuses, playground toys, created play areas have all deteriorated to dust, so a new lot has to be bought. After all this time and money we should have the least Children in Need on the planet !!


    • Lefty Wright says:

      Yes I agree. It does make you wonder just when the organizers of Children in Need are going to announce to the world “We have succeeded in our mission and there are no longer any children in need.” It does seem like a bottomless begging bowl. I think we need to ask who are these children and why, in a land of plenty benefits they ARE in need. Also how much of the need is as a result of misfortune and how much is due to adult irresponsibility? The clever people who thought it was a good idea to smash the institution of the nuclear family have a lot to answer for.


      • Guest Who says:

        It’s the little things…


      • Oaknash says:

        Lefty – Maybe a re-branding to “Luvvies in Need” would be closer to the mark.


        • Lefty Wright says:

          Yes mate. “Luvvies in need of an ego trip”. It has the effect of keeping these mostly useless,boring people in the public eye long after their sell by date has expired and I suspect that’s why a lot of them do it.
          There are philanthropists about but they seem to give quietly and we often hear about their good deeds only after their death.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Bris it’s similar to live aid where all starvation and disease seas going to be cured by a shed load of geldof inspired money being sent to the dark continent .. somehow not much has changed but st bobs bank balance remains healthy .


      • Lefty Wright says:

        Geldolf’s television demand to the public years ago “Send us yer fockin’ monnie” has paid off handsomely–for him!


        • BRISSLES says:

          Lefty, your comment of ………. “It does seem like a bottomless begging bowl. I think we need to ask who are these children and why, in a land of plenty benefits they ARE in need. ” hits the nail on the head.
          Millions are given every year, so is the last penny spent the week before the new edition of CiN begins for another year ? otherwise there must a rollover of cash year on year, so it would be interesting to see the actual current bank balance of this organisation. Incidentally does anyone on here know of any group that has benefited from a CiN handout during its 37 years ?


  4. Beltane says:

    I see the enviably attractive Eni Aluko, not entirely happy with the low-scale approval and sympathy of her England team mates, is planning further revelations together with, perhaps, similar shocking if tentative tales of discrimination and racism experienced by others. Mark Sampson, on the other hand, is currently seen as something of a victim, unfairly sacked at the height of his, and his team’s, success.
    Obviously, that won’t do, will it? Expect more adjustments from the FA soon.


  5. Captain Panick says:

    The BBC Newsroom staff wake up, and manage to highlight an amusing press release from Doncaster Council, that Two road gritters have been named Gritsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Anti-Slip Machiney and David Plowie


    I actually enjoyed that.

    Then they have a more difficult NATO press release on diplomatic relations with Turkey to deal with, where Turkey withdrew all its troops from a NATO excercise over an alleged affront.


    Now how many troops left in a huff? A Division? A Brigade! A Regiment? A Company of intrepid Turkish warriors maybe? Answer is 40, or a reinforced platoon. The story should be that Turkey cannot be arsed to help in a NATO exercise in the first place.

    Back to sleep workers of the BBC, Nighty Night.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Well let’s hope the dirty Turks pull out of nato and show their true colours. The krauts wanted that awful bunch in the Eu – which featured a bit in the referendum but got suppressed by al Beeb with its love for all things false profit – Islam


  6. AsISeeIt says:

    “If I were a supporter of Brexit, which I’m not….”

    I suppose it’s refreshing in a way to hear a BBC guest newspaper reviewer actually admit to his bias. If only each journo who appeared on the BBC prior to editorialising his or her opinions made such a clear declaration. It would go some way to level the playing field.


  7. StewGreen says:

    Monday is ‘Transgender Day of Remembrance’


    • Oaknash says:

      Stew thanks for the tip I will put it in my diary alongside reminder to self to wash my hair .

      I am just a little confused as to what this “remembrance day ” is about – Is it about remembering that you used to wear trousers or a skirt or is it about remembering that you used to use the gents and now you use the ladies. I am confused.

      I suspect the original reason is about remembering that some transgenders have suffered in countries of a “certain religion” because of their sexuality. – Very commendable but I suspect that even if the BBC does cover it it would not be very interested in transgenders being thrown off buildings in Afganistan or similair it will be more interested in shaming the rest of us because a transgender was given a funny look in a pub or a christian cake shop in Great Risington or Little Bumstead.

      The BBC will be in a dilemma of course whether to cover this story as this also falls within “Islamaphobia awareness month” Actually – its not a problem really as Islam trumps everything these days so I suspect that the BBC (despite its penchant for covering all things bizarre) is unlikely to pick this story up.
      It is however interesting as it highlights the obvious contradiction between BBC support for all things sexually diverse and its slavish support for all things Islamic.
      I for one will more interested in this irrelevance when we also have a “remembrance day” for victims of Islamic fundamentalism .
      Cant see that happening somehow.


  8. Fedup2 says:

    Telegraph is carrying a story saying the EU is threatening to with hold the 5 billion thatcher rebate unless we do what they say .
    Well that’s good isn’t it ? If our legal debt to the EU is really 20 billion then that 5 knocks it down to 15 and then use the 13 billion overseas aid money which then more or less calls it quits.

    We can then have a nice trade negotiation about beemers, butter , cheese and wine . Then we can deal with the expat issue – all the brits in the EU versus all the EUs in Blighty . If the banks go that’s no great loss as they minimise tax anyway and have cost us enough already .


    • Up2snuff says:

      Fedup, not sure they can. In the row over the ‘£350m banner on the bus’ the Remainers, including the BBC, have all been claiming that ‘the rebate’ never goes to Brussels and is spent instantly on very worthy projects in the UK that benefit poor, neglected, marginalised people. I think there is some truth in that, as far as I know, the money is held in escrow in the Treasury.

      The BBC, with their short-term memory loss, have obviously forgotten that.

      The BBC and other media probably do not know EXACTLY or even MOSTLY what the EU are suggesting, and it may even be based more on gossip rather than leak because Remain are still in full on battle mode to try to overturn Brexit.


  9. Lucy Pevensey says:

    Now let’s get serious. I’m tired of all this fannying about. They can’t hurt us in trade negotiations. Tea comes from India. As long as the Indians will sell us their tea who shall we fear? 😉 good night.

    No tanks, Naga

    Our Breakfast Ms Munchetty predictably misspeaks the news

    What we saw on the outskirts of Harare on Tuesday were not tanks, they were tracked armoured personnel carriers

    This is a very common bit of modern journo-speak – to call every military vehicle by the catch-all term of tank

    Which makes you wonder what other linguistic shortcuts and euphemisms are our fourth estate regularly foisting on us ?

    For example : British Independence from the EU is termed Brexit in an attempt to obfuscate and to hide the control Brussels presently wields over our country’s institutions.

    Wonderful moment on the pro-Remain BBC, still campaigning to Remain in the EU and, today, pushing for a second Referendum on the UK & EU. (TODAY Prog R4 just before pre-8am weather forecast)

    Tim Martin (university educated, fifty-something Brexiteer) and Nicola Horlick (university educated, fifty-something Remainer) are the adversary contributors. BBC’s Justin Webb (? I think it was JW) wants another Referendum. Nicola Horlick wanted another EU Referendum because “We (all Remainers?) did not know what we were voting for.”

    Not only were young Remainers deceived into voting Remain by Russian influence on Facebook and Twitter but middle-aged Remainers did not know what they were voting for despite, as Tim Martin observed, the Government sending an informative booklet to every household before the EU Referendum. Amazing!

    All those over-65, uneducated, stupid, racist, country-dwelling yokels had it right after all!

    Roll on Brexit Day!


    • Lefty Wright says:

      Surely I am not the only one in Britain who knew exactly what I was voting for in the referendum. Enough yap, Brexit Now!


      • Up2snuff says:

        Lefty Wright you were not wrong but right.

        Above all BECAUSE you were a Brexiteer on 23 June 2016, are a Brexiteer and will be a Brexiteer on 30 March 2019, the day after Brexit.

        It is the Remainers who were wrong on 23 June 2016 and should have instead voted to Leave the EU. We are now being told by, or via, the BBC that they did not know what they were doing or were deceived by Tweets and Facebook posts into voting the wrong way and voting to Remain.

      There is probably an ongoing debate on this subject in every Yooni in the land. Not.


  15. StewGreen says:

    Today once again I spot libmob commenters and moderators talking about older commenters/presenters they don’t agree with
    “Past it.” “senility” they shout
    That’s libs being fascist against a person who doesn’t conform
    : They assign a person to a group “the old” and then say that group has a characteristic
    …that’s age-ist


    • Lefty Wright says:

      Let me be honest I am an ancient old git and well past my best (such as it was) but the only conformity I would agree with is that we all conform to the idea of diversity of opinions and ideas. Oh no, the communist would shout, that would be far too divisive and in any case would be detrimental to our cause.
