        Yes Taff, East German with rumors of working as a Stasi informant in her youth but not really proven. She has been running the show over there for 12 years which is as long as the countries most infamous leader. I have always found it odd that the beeb and co. describe the CDU as center-right with conservative liberal policies. Surely that is an oxymoron, in my opinion Merkels policies have hoodwinked conservative Germans into voting for her and her party. I am sure that Tweezer thinks she emulate the German political model with a liberal conservative party that is conservative on the back bench only.

          While most East Germans were trying to escape, Merkel’s parents actually volunteered to live in the DDR. Not only that but the female Merkel has chosen to police the Internet for anti-immigration and anti-government tweets is ex-Stasi herself!

      Lucy Pevensey,

      This is the stuff your are peddling.

      But you know that right? And you agree with it?

      https://thisiseuropa.net

      What do we do with immigrants already here? And what would reversing White genocide actually entail?

      It would look like Pakistanis living with Pakistanis in Pakistan, Chinese living with Chinese in China, Africans living with Africans in Africa and Arabs living with Arabs in Arab countries. When we think about it that way – would it really be inhumane?

          As far as I can tell he is some sort of Social Justice Warrior. He just comes on here to make claims people on here are racist and bigoted – with the presumption that he himself holds the moral high ground. He seems to be a pro- open border activist for Europe and the US. Beyond that it is difficult to say because he doesn’t go into any detail apart from making repeated claims people on here are racist, bigoted, hypocritical, low in intelligence and thought. He doesn’t think the BBC is biased. He thinks the BBC is neutral and fair.

        I’m not peddling anything. I just came across the video clip and liked it. It seems to me EU supporters/remainers lack any kind of real love of Europe itself. It’s peoples, cultures, landscapes, languages & traditions. It should be the remainers talking Europe up. But they don’t. If you can’t take a >3min video clip like that at face value you must have a problem with Europe being European.

          Agree Lucy, that is the cruks of why all 28 nations each with its own identity with its own culture and its own ideology of how it wants its nation to proceed has been lost-these differences made up a great and interesting Europe but the introduction so stealthily introduced in the early 1970’s to eventually bring about the programme initially planned by certain evil people early in 1950’s for what we now have as the European Union-their aim to destroy all sovereignty, subjugate all the populations into following one set of rules and undermine/destroy all the countries Laws. Supress any slight disagreement by the said public or any attack verbally or physically by introduction of rigid gun laws and the development of Riot Squads-whose effect we have recently seen in Catalonia. What we have today as the EU is not what Winston Churchill et al saw as a united Europe. We have been conned, cheated whilst those controlling the EU and its policies became rich and much richer than before. Could have been a successful inclusion of Europes nations but you may fool some of the people some of the time but NOT all of the people all of the time. Other countries will eventually follow the UK and pull away from the current EU and those that sit in Bussels know it.

          I agree, too, Lucy. The BBC conveyed very little news of both the EU and Europe to us (esp. on R4 where you would expect it to be) despite having full-time correspondents based in both and paid for by the Licence Fee payer.

          The BBC are very quick to produce Americans (esp. squeaky voiced females), Canadians, South Africans, Australians and New Zealanders on R4 to inform or educate me. They are rather less quick to bring people from European states, together with news of their countries, their peoples and the doings & achievements of the EU, to me as a regular listener.

          Most peculiar.

          I wonder how much maxi knows about the EU if he is a ‘Remainer’?

          I find Remainers, on the whole, know less about the EU than those advocating our leaving. They sometimes have property there or constantly travel there for recreation, but they know little about the EU and its benefits and liabilities beyond Visa-free travel and the Euro. They often appear to intensely dislike certain nationalities, too, in Europe or elsewhere in the world, which is equally amazing.

        Maxi-con
        I just had a look at the page you linked. What are you accusing me of exactly?
        I only read the one page and did not delve any further.
        You must be a BBC editor. It isn’t a very long statement. In the selections you chose to post from the page YOU linked you omitted this:

        “we want to help others understand that a future for our people does not exclude a future for other peoples and races.”

        “we highly believe in peaceful solutions to these challenges and we want to inspire others to take action within our Statement of Principles in order to make a better society”

        So you disagree with:

        1. Reversing white genocide.
        2. Chinese living in China. Arabs living in Arab countries and so on.
        3. Peaceful solutions to problems
        4. A future for all peoples & races

        And you want to vilify these ideas from the lofty heights of your self-assumed moral superiority for some reason ?

        Max,
        Max,
        Just for clarity, I suspect that the likes for your post are from people who support the idea of repatriation of the Muslim invaders, not for your implied criticism of Lucy. Repatriation would be a far better way of spending tax payers money than giving billions to the EU. Suppose we spent the mooted 40 billion on repatriation we could offer any Muslim who wished to leave a substantial sum provided they agreed never to return. In fact as most of these folk are a net drain on our economy I suspect that we would get an immediate return on that investment and a payback period of only a few years. Lump in the money set aside for the ridiculous HS2 project as well and I reckon we could really make some headway here towards a better, safer , cleaner , more harmonious country. What’s not to like ?

        You still haven’t withdrawn your false quoting of Alan despite being asked several times to do so. Your tactic is to run away for a week or two then pop up somewhere else here when you think we have forgotten.
        You accused Alan of stating ‘ Here’s a ‘Neo European’ wishing old white men would just curl up and die in a cold winter’. This was a provably false quote like many others of yours because presumably you live in a fantasy world in your own head.
        Are you happy to continuously lie your way through this blog?

        Don’t forget Lucy, the way the BBC and MSM use language to promote their aim of Cultural Marxism; for instance using the euphemistic word ‘grooming’ instead of the correct words, “rape” or “raping”. I’m sure you could make quite an extensive list, for example, the word ‘Asian’ is often substituted for ‘Pakistani’ in BBC news reports about organised Pakistani rape gangs. Many years ago BBC Midlands Today used to end reports of street robbery (muggings) by saying , “The police are looking for a man in a woollen hat.” to avoid saying the police are looking for a”black man” in connection with the crime.

      Brissles, that is far, far from unusual in “our” NHS.

      “The most recent government statistics indicate that around 15% of practicing doctors in Britain have been imported from South Asia (India and Pakistan) and Africa. A further 9.8% were admitted from other countries in the European Union, bringing the total proportion of non-British doctors to around 25%. This alarming figure is considerably more unsettling when placed in the context of malpractice, incompetence, and abuse. During the last 12 months a total of 281 decisions on cases of serious complaint were reached the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS), which, together with the General Medical Council (GMC), is responsible for registering, disciplining, and ‘striking off’ dangerous physicians working in Britain. Ignored by the mainstream media, I took it upon myself to conduct an analysis of the MPTS’s list of tribunal decisions — an analysis which revealed that non-British doctors (25% of the total) are responsible for at least 80% of tribunal cases, the vast majority of them bearing Muslim, South Asian, or African names…”

          “It is a matter of documented fact that foreign doctors from India and Africa are responsible for more than 90% of tribunal cases involving incompetence. The details from some of these cases are stunning. For example, Indian junior doctor Sripathy Subramanian was struck off the medical register after it was discovered at one hospital that he was so lacking in basic skills that he “did not recognise that one patient had normal breathing,” and was unable to name any major bones or arteries. Another Indian, Vasudha Mashankar, was struck off after causing the death of a young boy by failing to identify an intracranial bleed. Nigerian gynecologist Benjamin Ogbonna botched his handling of six patients in such a fashion that he was struck off for having “an old fashioned approach to medicine; making premature judgements, overlooking relevant matters, and a persistent pattern of deficient professional performance.””

        Thanks for that Al. I’m old school, and fed up to the ears when listening to the pontifications of many, that the NHS would collapse without overseas staff; and yes it would because of the amount of overseas settlers that have arrived here and make use of it. Before the obscene numbers of migration, our NHS coped perfectly well for the indigenous population from when it was conceived in 1948, and for the following 20/30 years, and in those few blissful years we had spotless antiseptic hospitals run by Matron and a few admin staff. Nurses that looked clean in their uniforms so you knew you were in good hands, doctors that were respected in their white coats, and wards that blossomed with flowers instead of kow towing to a health and safety edict. Its a pity we cannot combine the advances of modern medicine with the old ways of running a hospital.

      Calm down Brissles – its just cultural relativism.

      Everybody knows that if a woman goes to see a vibrant male doctor “immodestly” dressed and without a close male relative in attendance that she probably wants to have her breast felt.

      Thats why Sistas these days dont seem to get bothered by this sort of unimportant trust based stuff. However real crime is when if a worldly, desperately ambitious, starlet meets a notorious Hollywood Director in private, gets abused, keeps quiet for years and then decides years later to jump onto a speeding bandwagon before it disappears off into obscurity as the next PC shock horror story gets all the limelight.

      By the way does anyone know yet if international feminist – Emma Watson has revealed yet whether Harvey once looked at her and made her feel uncomfortable at a Hollywood party? Strange that this feminist “activist” kept so quiet about the scandal until the last moment. I hear though that in October she said she now stands with them all.

      I dont expect Emma and her ilk will be doing much standing in Rotherham any time soon. As far as the establishment is concerned this whole story still needs to be protected by a media/BBC led “Cloak of Invisibility”

        I don’t know about Emma Watson. But I did hear that other tiresome airhead Emma Thompson on the radio a couple of weeks ago or so. She seemed to admit that she hadn’t known about the goings on but that didn’t stop her blaming the whole thing ultimately on Trump. Which of course suited the BBC’s agenda just dandy.
        They will use her again next time they need to blame Trump for something he had nothing to do with.
        As for Rotherham, well not a squeak as far as I know.

            Too much money, time to stir-and not enough talent to indulge her.
            Self loathing lefty discovers Nazanin when the BBC prime her.
            Cultural cherry bomber, no danger of a suicide though.

            Many of us knew of Zaghari-Ratcliffes case for over a year now-but the BBC were simply trying to jemmy the lid off Brexit using her sorry tale. Her case is coming up on Dec 10th-expect plenty anti-Boris bile in the lead up. It`s as if Jo Cox never died, and her poor family are way ouf of their depth in despair.

            But the BBC and liberal scum for sticking with the EU have hardly started to scrape the barrel…they`d like her under a death sentence I`m sure, solely to embarrass Johnson and Brexit.

    Is this some sort of bizarre deflection on her part? She should be focusing on Brexit not making claims it is all Russia’s fault and that Britain and Europe have to work together against Russia. She now seems to be leaking things to the BBC to big up her next public speech which apparently is going to be pro-Europe and anti-Russia.

    There is growing evidence of Theresa May working closely with the BBC on occasion. There was the incident when she seemingly had a BBC reporter that was travelling with her (Laura Kuenssberg) ask her and Donald Trump an anti-Trump question in a Trump – May press conference, during her visit to the US. Trump called her out on that inferring she was duplicitous.

    The bBbc has developed a cosy relationship with the Irish government of late, happy to help them offer opinion and advice on British foreign and domestic policy and to allow them to credit themselves with a level of influence and control over the affairs of Northern Ireland that simply does not exist.

    The bBbc have allowed the Republic to portray themselves as victims of British economic aggression, their feelings hurt by Britain’s failure to consider them when deciding it’s own future and allowing them to further flirt with the idea of a renuited Ireland and to ignore a border and the sovereignty of a part of the United Kingdom.

    Hard Brexit, hard border, soft Brexit, no border. There is a border, decided upon during partition when the Irish Free State became independent of Britain, at their behest, a foreign country now engaged as always in anti-British mischief making. There has never been a united Ireland and it isn’t going to happen now, but it suits the pro-EU stance of both this foreign state and our accommodating national broadcaster to suggest otherwise.

    This must then be why the current constitutional meltdown in Ireland, political chaos seemingly worsening by the hour and caused as ever by their corrupt and unprincipled governing class, is hidden on the Europe and Northern Ireland pages of the bBbc website. Not enough supposition or contrived commentary available on this one to make the front page yet it would seem.

    The possible collapse of this political parochial council, our moral guides and erasers elect of our only EU land border, doesn’t appear to be all that important, until that is some blame for their lack of intelligence and honesty can be attributed to Britain and Brexit.

      Yes Rich ,

      I just don’t get the Irish stance – unless they are being driven the the evil Brussels mafia – we are their biggest exporter and culturally are very close – with out without the mad republicans and their outdated sentiment driven by killing the innocent .

      If I was running Eire I’d make nice with us and say to Brussels – you sort out the border as your one track ever greater union shit has driven Blighty away .
      If it were possible also beebs anti brexit anti HMG drive seems to be getting even more as the year end – 589 days on my calc.

        What’s the problem with having a border between Eire and NI?
        We have the same border with France, Denmark etc and life goes on.
        Why is this issue such an important one.

        I think it’s only a big issue because the politicians (on both the eu and our side) want to make it so.
        A few farmers may be slightly inconvenienced in the same way that commuters sometimes get held up in traffic.
        So what.

          Exactly EG.

          It’s just being used by the opportunistic EU as an emotive barrier, no practical reason why there should be any problems, but feelings and rights, real or supposed, trump any practicalities. Who gives a shit, we don’t owe the Irish anything, individually perhaps not, but as a nation they despise anything British.

          The bBbc deal in this same currency, obstacles of false perception backed up by a lack of journalistic rigour and by added ulterior motives. The bBbc never highlight simple solutions or offer beneficial conclusions that do not fit their agenda. 24 hours of rolling to fill and EU approved agendas to push all the time.

          As a matter of interest who will perpetrate any violence that is apparently a risk should a hard border, whatever tf that is, be required? Is someone threatening this? Perhaps too many cross border rackets are being protected by the status quo? Whatever, in amongst all this posturing on the Irish side the people of Northern Ireland do not matter in the least to either Eire or the EU or to the bBbc.

            The insane thing is that the Irish will be a minority in Ireland, due to non-white immigration even before the British are the minority here in the UK; yet they fought and still fight to rid the island of Ireland of “the Brits” and have a “united Ireland”.

            Good luck with that. A united Ireland where the Irish are outnumbered by all the blacks and browns they’ve taken in and who’ve bred them out; is that what they’ve been struggling for all these years?

              I think there is an element of ‘my enemy’s enemy is my friend’ in those parts of the world that want ‘freedom’ from ‘the English’.

              The French Canadians in Quebec probably started it first, they wanted to open the doors to speakers of French from wherever they could find them – the more they could get the easier it would be to build a French-speaking state and to hell with the descendants of the people who actually built the railways, banks and big cities like Montreal.

              Wee ‘Krankie’ is another one, anyone welcome as long as they hate the English, (or are English socialists). The Irish Republic probably has politicians that think the same.

              Unfortunately for the PQ lot in Canada they have now discovered to their horror that French speaking doesn’t equate to being Catholic. Not only that these non-French speakers of French do so as a result of French colonialism so have no emotional attachment to the language or the fossilised culture of 18th century France as practised by the PQ-istas! All of a sudden those (mostly bi-lingual) Anglos perhaps aren’t so bad. A lesson for the SNP and Eire perhaps?

            What a coincidence.

            Yesterday’s edition of “Open Country”, just happened to be about Northern Ireland’s border with the Republic. It was a recording of Helen Mark walking the border, pointing out all of its illogicalities and telling us how communities on both sides had come together once the horrible border had been reduced to a mere line on a map.

            The programme outline on their website even goes so far as to point out that: “a hard border will negatively affect both the economies and relationships of the Republic and Northern Ireland.” As an aside: as the first B in BBC stands for British (no laughing at the back) shouldn’t the sequence be “of Northern Ireland and the Republic”?

            http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09fzmjy#play

            How could I possibly think that this programme is part of the BBC’s effort in an orchestrated plan to sabotage Brexit? This week the Northern Ireland border, next week #####.

          If brexit is a success the economic pull for Eire to leave the EU could be enough to take it out. If we have to go back in a United Eire and uk on the Euro will be on the Brussels list of punishments . Hard to look 10 days ahead yet alone 10 years eh?

    Can’t help noticing that the BBC (and others but the BBC in particular) have been castigating the Chancellor for not doing anything about improving productivity in the Budget.

    Now, no-one here will need to be told how productivity is calculated (a division of the outputs (revenues) by the inputs (typically labour force costs, capital and other resources utilised) to get to an overall efficiency figure. Alternatively, it can be measured as a straight forward division of revenues against the total amount of hours worked.

    Strangely, we are never told precisely how it is measured, just that we as a country are poor when compared to Germany (!).

    We saw it again on Question Time last night, when Diane Abbott set her colossal intellect onto the subject. She advocated greater regulation in everything and seemed to be supported by Dimbleby.

    To me, that is precisely the problem. If every business or public sector entity has hoards of people all focused on regulation, compliance and general box ticking, and if there are platoons of Quangos and other organisations primarily focused on that kind of activity (as there are) then by definition that means that fewer people proportionately will be spending time on proper revenue generating activity?

    So when commentators suggest that low productivity is a common problem across the West, maybe they should consider the impact of all this regulation on the ability to generate actual revenue, and ultimately on the nation’s productivity level?

      Nofan. The introduction of the minimum wage enabled employers to have a bench mark and has a detrimental effect on productivity in my opinion. Rather than protecting some of the more vulnerable members of the workforce it has now become the norm and is a negative form of regulation that has permeated into manufacturing, not just the service industries.

        Excellent analogy, Kaiser.

        Synchronised… excellent thought also. I genuinely hadn’t considered that aspect but you are spot on. Anything that drives up the inputs (cost) is going to have a negative impact on the overall efficiency level that follows.

        So, all in all not a lot that the Chancellor can do whilst the appetite for high regulation remains, it would seem.

    Yesterday the BBC had a double delight as EU leaders described the British governments Brexit negotiators as ‘clueless’.

    The BBC delighting in Tory Ministers being attacked, and Brexit being handled badly had a spree or interviews of foreign ministers name calling the government. Boris Johnson was called ‘unimpressive’ and the BBC was so impressed by this that they recorded the interview and placed it on the web site so everyone could have a little orgasm listening to it a second third or maybe even fourth time:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-politics-42104142/eu-ministers-say-boris-johnson-is-unimpressive

    No surprises for where the story came from either:

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/nov/23/irish-report-shows-eu-lack-of-respect-for-uk-handling-of-brexit

        The rivers of rubbish left by the masses meandering across Europe can be used as an example to show that traditional western societies, travellers most definitely excepted, have on the whole more developed and therefore conscientious ideas with regards to hygiene, environmental responsibility and maintenance of shared spaces. Circumstances may allow us this but why should we accept the disregard with which so many in the developing treat the world? Why should we accept the blame? Who created the shitholes that many of these people are fleeing?

        The media driven idea that the western world is directly responsible for all of the earths environmental issues really is bullshit. We may have developed materials and methods that can cause problems but developing nations have more than enough guidance, knowledge and experience of these to manage them more effectively and with less adverse environmental impact.

        There has to be a desire to do this, however, waste management is not a priority in societies and cultures, internationally or domestically, where subsistence living is the norm and corruption is expected.

    I did enjoy the 10.00 news on BBC Radio4 last night (presenter, director and producer: Iqbal, Sandhu, Sidhu respectively). After educating me on Yemen in the lead item, and that Britain is not doing enough about it, there was a debate on the economy.
    A Labour adviser came on to tell us that our ‘dire’ economic situation was down to two people: Cameron, because he intro- duced Brexit and Osborne cos of austerity. Giggle. Cameron was AGAINST Brexit and actually used taxpayers money to campaign AGAINST it; finally he resigned BECAUSE of it. Don’t let the FACTS get in the way, BBC! There was also the usual about the Rohinja muslims and Palestine. (What a SURPRISE it would be if one day there was something on the persecution of Christians or the murder and torture of hundreds of farmers and farmworkers in South Africa every year. (no chance: the farmers are white, so unimportant; their black workers are probably Christian, so also unimportant) I do enjoy the 10.00 news. Almost always a chance to listen to propaganda, cleverly designed to look like news. Still waiting for 1 positive or even neutral comment about Trump, by the way, since his election. Any sign of balance, news at 10.00? Ever?

    Budget Strugglers
    S’truth mates, how d’you go?! Bloody long time no see. Yer old cobber the Assistant to the Aussie Cultural Attaché back again. Now as per bleedin’ usual you’re probably attemptin’ to surmise the precise whereabouts of our dear friend the top knob hisself – Sir Lesley Patterson MBE (Most Bludgers are English). No, he still ain’t carked it. And as far as we know he ain’t had to go to ground cos he’s done a Rolf. Or – and I know you’re wondering – assumin’ he was barracking for the other team – a Spacey. Put Sir Les under the forensic microscope and the stains you’ll find are mostly gravy. He tells me he only ever got his donger wet when it was one hundred and ten percent consensual – and usually contractual – on account of dollars changing hands (or whatever constitutes the local currency). Last instalment was he’d gone serious walkabout on his infamous self-arranged fact-finding tour of Bangkok’s most notorious rub ‘n’ tug shops. Saucy bleeder. A right diplomatic corps-blimey. Legendary bloke, nonetheless.
    Anyway, I come to praise Sir Les not bury him – as they say here in Shakespearistan or the old country as we used to call it. Now, temptin’ as it is to give you Poms the earbashing you rightly deserve over the cricket – and any team that comes to Aussie with a sports captain named Root is gonna be due some sledging.
    No, what I reckon I’ll broach is your home test match over the Budget on this Radio 4 Today programme. We all know it’s a side on game – by which I mean the BBC fast attack strike bowlers will go for the Blue team with the dangerous bouncers and then try to hit them right up in the block hole. Save the slow stuff for the Red team. This bloke DJ Humphrys is a bit long in the tooth but he takes an enormous runup and uses that ‘I’ve started so I’ll finish’ spin on the Chancellor. Who plays a dull but steady straight bat. Now contrast that scenario, If you will, with the work experience girl who’s been busy like mad in the office limbering up ticking loads of boxes – Mishal. You know the one – make me a sandwich, luv, yes, I know you won’t touch the ham. She open’s up with the really slow stuff against the Opposition bloke who’s just lobbed into the studio. Course, this Shadow is such a drongo he shows hisself to be not the full quid and he’s easy caught out by the Sheila.

    Cut backs in the BBC Complaints Department?

    On 3rd November I submitted this one:
    Vine’s guest today in the 12:30 to 13:00 segment of his programme was Robert Peston. At approximately 13:05 Vine posted a video (https://www.facebook.com/thejeremyvine/videos/2073580579528483/) on his own personal Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/thejeremyvine/) that was nothing more than an advertisement for the books that these two characters currently have for sale. While I accept that Vine can publish whatever he likes on his own Facebook page I take great exception to him recording a promotional video for two books (and for his and Peston’s personal gain) during time in which he is employed by the BBC to present a radio programme. In my workplace this would be called “doing a foreigner” and I would be subject to disciplinary action and probable dismissal. I would be interested to read the BBC’s views on such behaviour and what action will be taken.

    I’ve just had the response, and it says: Thanks for your comments which have been noted.

    RE: Rotherham.

    Around 2005 the BBC infiltrated the BNP. They secretly filmed the meetings where the problem of grooming was discussed; Nick Griffin quoted the passage of the Koran which states that Muslims are allowed to have ‘captives of the right hand’ i.e. sex slaves. The material was then used in a Panorama special exposing the BNP as evil monsters; Griffin was prosecuted for trumped up charges of inciting racial hatred.

    The Beeb knew all about the terrible abuse and not only did nothing but cried ‘arson!’ at people tying to put out the fire. None of their children were getting raped and tortured so they did not care.

    Then when Andrew Norfolk of The Times broke the taboo years later and openly discussed the race link, they feign shock. How could the Police and social services do nothing! Nobody has more blood on their hands over this than the BBC. They had the power and knowledge to act but instead chose betrayal.

    Whatever happened to the presumption of innocence?………………..He’s right. In defending himself, Piven is also defending one of the core principles of an advanced society: the presumption of innocence……….
    After describing the accusations against him as “absolutely false,” Piven laments the fact that “allegations are being printed as facts” and “lives are being put in jeopardy without a hearing, due process or evidence.” He wonders what happened to “the benefit of the doubt.” To “tear each other down and destroy careers based on mere allegations is not productive at all,” he says.
    He’s right. In defending himself, Piven is also defending one of the core principles of an advanced society: the presumption of innocence. The great liberal English barrister John Mortimer called this presumption the “golden thread” running through any progressive idea of justice. And it’s a thread that is being weakened in the febrile post-Weinstein climate.

      “Support for Germany and mainland France would be discontinued,” Benelux and Scandinavian countries, Ireland and Austria would no longer receive any money under the EU’s main subsidies regime.

    Another new(ish) Islamist group, formerly known as Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, has just murdered more than 230 people in Egypt.

    Another fresh group of religious murderers, wonder if Jeremy Corbyn has shared stage with them?

      Meanwhile, back in good ol’ Blighty, common or garden British criminals have been going about their nefarious business and laundering the stolen goods back to …Pakistan.
      “The gang, who were in and out of each shop in a matter of minutes, stole to order but were undone when Three, the phone company whose outlets were repeatedly targeted, placed dummy phones with trackers in store rooms.

      The stolen phones were sold on to shop owners in the East End who sent them to countries including Bangladesh and Pakistan.

      Scotland Yard identified the north Londoner Courtney White, 22, as the ringleader and Mominur Rahman, also 22, as his right-hand man. White was tracked down after detectives noticed a distinctive mark on his helmet.

      The pair were convicted alongside Mohammed Hussain, 24, from east London and Chang Mabiala, 22, from Islington, of conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary after a four-week trial at Blackfriars crown court yesterday.

      Another man, Youssef Kaissouni, 46, was cleared of handling stolen goods. Bobby Kennedy, 22, had been released from prison two weeks earlier for similar offences before joining the gang. He and Chris Costi, 19, from east London, were found guilty of conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary after a trial at the same court in August.

      Three other members of the gang including Bobby’s brother Alfie Kennedy, 20, of north London, Dylan Castano-Lopez, 19, from south London and Adam Atallah, 21, all admitted their part in the conspiracy.”

      Mostly ‘British’ sounding names? Would you Adam and Eve it!!

    Thought I would listen to the BBC Radio 4 drama today. It was about a time travelling English knight from the Middle Ages in present day Turkey. There was comic streak running through it and I was actually enjoying it. The knight meets another time traveller, a beautiful lady from Turkey. They run away together and with 3 minutes left of broadcasting time left, The reporter who is following them announces in her report that their bodies have been found washed up on a Turkish beach along with with the bodies of dozens of drowned Syrian refugees.
    Pure unadulterated shameless BBC propaganda. It’s now in everything the BBC broadcasts, comedy, drama, current affairs, arts and news. Oh well, The Now Show is on this evening, that’s quite impartial and objective…

    BBC fake news
    The bBC is heavily promoting the story of how a parent in Bristol took offence at how her daughter was asked to rate how she would like to live next door to a black person.

    It turns out the lesson was one on diversity and from looking at the photo of the work sheet (clipped in which not to show the heading) the subject was unconscious bias which is a topic the bBC promotes heavily.

    But then on following up this story at the Bristol post, I am made aware the mother works for the bBC. Funny how the bBC is promoting a story about racism regards a subject which they themselves champion.

        There was a programme about the blitz in the east end of London last night. It gave a small glimpse of the suffering of the people of the East End suffered during the 1940s .

        I am the son of the East End and my families house has bombed by the Germans. The documentary didn’t have any black or new commonwealth people in it . It also skirted around the termed used by the authorities – bombed out people were apparently called refugees ….
        The programme didn’t go down the bias road . I think al beeb realised it was very dodgy and sensitive ground .

        Im all too aware of the suffering the people in my bit of London suffered. It’s sad it’s neglected and only aired in an albeeb documentary .

    The World at One this afternoon had a fascinating guest on, a man by the name of Nick Clegg.

    Some people might think he is a has-been politician who gets by on his EU pension, but they would be wrong. Nick Clegg is in fact an unbiased commentator of great merit, who was able to dissect with forensic precision the con which is Brexit, expose the lies told to us by Brexiteers in the Referendum, reveal that the EU is behaving entirely reasonably in our negotiations and prove that leaving the EU is the biggest mistake Britain has ever made.

    I am assuming all this is true, because he was not seriously challenged on any of it by the presenter. Obviously, the BBC is itself an unbiased seeker of truth, and would therefore not allow Nick Clegg on air to spout his views unless they were the absolute truth.

    A bit like man made climate change and the Pissgate dossier.

      And the written version of al Beeb the guardian – carries a feature on one of their loves – a mr peston, son of a Labour MP and journo cum luvi celeb. He and me have tow things in common – gender and age.

      Mr peston , free on his unbiased neutrality as a Beeb oid , is now free to rubbish Blighty and misrepresent things – eg he claims ‘the more cash for the nhs with Brexit ‘ was the main reason for the vote. Now he might quote polls ( rubbish) but really ? The reason was an inability to stop or control hordes of foreigners looking for a better life swamping Blighty and its organs – health housing education – because there are too many people too soon.

      Mr peston has fame and fortune but admitted recently being disconnected from people in Blighty – yet the bastard still spouts anti Brexit shit. Nice hair and new girlfriend though.

    QT last night.
    It seems that now, whenever the ‘housing crisis’ is mentioned, nobody even pretends the incoming 300,000 have anything to do with it.
    It’s as if they didn’t exist.
    I bet there are lots of normal people shouting at their tv’s that the 300k need somewhere to live and building 200,000 houses a year means we are roughly standing still.
    Instead, they blame people who want to live alone, old people for not dying soon enough (I thought they were all bed blocking) and the lack of tradesmen to build houses.
    Not one mention of the mass immigration and this is not only the bbbc but EVERY discussion on lack of housing.
    Is this NEVER going to be brought up, is it now forbidden to mention the true cause of the ‘housing crisis’
    If we didn’t have the net 3 million or so immigrants over the last decade we would have had an extra couple of million houses for our own homeless and youngsters, and NO ‘housing crisis’ (as well as hundreds of other huge benefits like less overcrowding and you all know loads of other ways life would be better)

      I have an IQ of 164, but the link between an immigration rate of 300,000 per annum, and the housing shortage, does not seem to me, to be all that complex, for people of average intelligence.

      But from the evidence, 75 percent of the native population are intelligent enough to see the link, but about 99 percent of Members of Parliament cannot. Therefore I estimate that 99 percent of MP,s must have an IQ below 70. This is most evident whenever Theresa May makes a speech.

      This would explain why Parliamentarians see third world immigrants as the “Master Race“.

        It really is frightening when one realises how thick so many of them are . One labour woman was boasting about being a grandmother at an early age and the shadow chancellor and shadow home sec do not have a proper relationship with numbers . I’m sure the other side are similarly thick . People like JRM who have a command of the numbers stick out like sore fingers .

        Few politicians admit that their party decisions about immigration have bought us to where we are. The first introduction of democracy to this mess was brexit .

        The least that the people have done is put a few alligators in their tax paid swamp .

          Sadly there are a couple of reasons why our mp’s behave as they do.

          I can’t believe they are so stupid that they don’t realise the relation between 300,000 incomers every year and the housing shortage.
          Therefore they must either want this or they don’t care.

          They are largely unaffected by these incomers apart from when they get to vote (for the left) or cheap nannies and gardeners (for the right)
          They don’t have to wait for nhs appointments, are not in competition for their jobs and the immigrants are not going to outbid them for a house.
          It’s the ordinary families who are losing jobs to the cheaper labour coming in and our homeless are at the back of the queue for any social housing, behind immigrant families.

          Are the mp’s really so isolated in a bubble and do they actually believe the huge lie that this mass immigration is good?
          I suppose the guardian has some intelligent readers and they somehow believe in this multicultural Elysium so IQ is probably not the way to measure an mp.

          Are the mp’s all scared stiff of appearing as some kind of racist or be accused of some ‘ism of which there are so many now. Are they so cowardly they play safe and avoid the truth.

          I just can’t understand why the mp’s are quiet about this (and many other things)

          If May were to pull out of the Brexit talks and say “we’ve made our offer and you’ve turned it down so we will leave now, if you want some trade deal you come to us” she would go down in history as a great PM. The same goes for any who will come out with the truth now.
          I won’t be holding my breath.
          JRM is the nearest we have in parliament.

    If nothing did indeed happen at Oxford Circus tonight, it shows how the terrorists are winning: thousands screaming in abject terror. They have already hit the capital twice this year and nothing whatsoever has been done to deal with the problem; only abject curbs on ‘hate speech’ as if stopping people from pointing at a fire would help put the flames out.

    We are told how good immigration is for the economy, but how badly must tourism be affected by all this? I live next to London and I am afraid to go there. I certainly would not pay to holiday there from abroad.

    How many attacks next year? Four? Ten? Twenty? More buses, tubes or trucks? I am not keeping calm and carrying on. I am staying in and making sure my children never visit our wonderful capital. It is not ‘brave’ to just pretend everything is ok – it is reckless and moronic.
