Mid-Week Open Thread

Tory MP Victoria Atkins fled Twitter due to the abuse she received and the BBC immediately headlined its bulletins with this breaking news….the same BBC that helped do so much to encourage the abuse of and disrespect for politicians, not only with its satire but with the vicious demonisation of Thatcher and Tories in general….and now it’s Trump in the firing line…literally.  Much as the body parts of long departed Saints are paraded around the country the ghost of Jo Cox is resurrected by any politician wanting to impart how serious their own situation is, a bit of Jo Cox martyrdom gives a lovely bit of credence to their claims of living on death row as the looming threat of the Twitter mob darkens their lives.  No mention of Stephen Timms being stabbed by a Muslim of course as this would distract from the narrative of a nasty bunch of fascist Brexiteers murdering all who oppose them.  No mention that there is absolutely nothing new about death threats and attacks on politicians…not just threats of course….the BBC’s, and Corbyn’s favourite terrorists, tried to kill the whole Tory government in the Grand Hotel as well as many other attacks.

Ah well, let’s just forget history, or rewrite it if it’s too inconvenient for today’s narratives and agendas.

Spot the BBC trying to write the future….list it here…..

    More about Worboys today. How many stories about him? And do we hear anything about a single ‘Asian’ rapist released who is probably far more likely to reoffend than Worboys, seeing as they showed no remorse and they believe ‘captives of the right hand’ are divinely sanctioned? After Darren Osborne said the BBC drama about Rochdale made him want to murder Muslims I imagine not memory holing any rapes by ‘Asians’ is now a sackable offence.

      The Guardian have their favourite comment under the skeleton story which is clearly what the BBC want us to think.

      “There is no such thing as ‘British’ as we all came here from Africa at different times. Once we realise this maybe we can try and start being nice to each other.”

      It is hard to be nice to someone when they are stealing your phone via a moped or putting nail bombs on the tube. What patronising crap. The problems are more complex than ‘trying to be nice’, the assumption as always that it is nasty racist white people who are the problem.

      You’re got to hand it to the BBC – Black centurions, Black Cheddar man with blue eyes – they never miss an opportunity to grind the axe.

      I found this in the Telegraph:

      Dr Yoan Dieckmann, from University College London, who took part in the project, said: “The historical perspective that you get just tells you that things change, things are in flux, and what may seem as a cemented truth that people who feel British should have white skin, through time is not at all something that is an immutable truth.

      “It has always changed and will change.”

      As usual, with academia ideology has triumphed over logic.
      Dr. Dickhead is conflating at least three things. “British” as a description of geography or location, “British” as a descrption of cultural identity and “British” as a descrption of being a citizen of the British state.
      Anything living in the British Isles, no matter whether it was human or nonhuman 10,000 years ago can only be British in sense 1. British identity and British citizenship only evolved a few hundred years ago. Cheddar man, no matter what his skin or eye colour may have been, could not have “felt British”. This is just another example of anachronistic thinking so beloved by the BBC.
      The same kind of confusion also gives rise to the ridiculous concept of “home-grown” terrorism. The connotation of “home-grown” is Britishness in sense 2. Muslim terrorists are British in sense1 or sense 1 and 3, but definitely not in sense 2 which the term “home-grown” mosty strongly suggests. Anjem Choudry may have British citizenship and may reside in Britain, but he is definitely not British in the cultural sense. Muslim terrorists are not “angry nativists”

    Toady talking about making online trolling a crime, covering the evidence of that renowned legal mind former topless model Katie Price.

    God, lighten up. Do they consider how hilarious a lot of trolling is? There was a video about this feminist ‘fight club’ where fat girls roll around in a basement and let out their anger about ‘oppression.’ Someone wrote underneath: ‘I bet that room absolutely stank.’ I am still laughing at that comment! Would comments like that be banned? Just turn off your computer if you do not like it.

    It is an attack on men yet again. It is more fun teaching in a boys’ school than a girls’ school because of all the p**s taking; men communicate via ‘trolling’ and some of the best moments of my life have been taking the p**s out of mates. They want to make it illegal? God they really have gone from ‘oppressed’ to oppressor.

        Oops. Duplicate; but a worthy one.

        “….supermarket chain Tesco could face a bill of £4bn in a case over equal pay for women, writes BBC business editor Kamal Ahmed. Lawyers [well, one at least] say female staff could get up to £20,000 in back pay, having received less money than men for comparable work.

        Paula Lee, of Leigh Day solicitors, said the most common rate for women was £8 an hour, whereas for men the hourly rate could be as high as £11 an hour. Up to 200,000 workers could be affected by unequal pay, she added.

        Tesco said all its staff could progress equally and were paid fairly, whatever their gender or background. “We are unable to comment on a claim that we have not received,” a spokeswoman said.“

        The could, the bad, and BBC editorial integrity.

        Noting also, tucked away at the end, that it would appear this legal weasel seems to have sent her press release to the ever happy to cut and paste BBC before submitting the ‘claim’.

          I wondered who was behind this claim..the BBC keep calling it an unequal pay (gender based) action when in reality it is a made up claim by solicitors – trying to build the concept of Value based jobs – check-out people are the same ‘value’ as distribution workers..absolutely ridiculous concept and nothing to do with gender..are porters the same value as nurses who in turn are same value as medics…and on it goes..

          When you apply for a job the rates are are clear and you decid if you are willing to accept it..

          As you say, all this will do is push companies to add more machines and lose staff – Well done solicitors and BBC for promoting this as news

            ‘Value’ is ridiculously subjective. A nurse’s ‘value’ to society is more than a CEO of a marketing company. Should she be paid more then? No – the market decides that. We are not living in Soviet Russia where the market can be torn apart to satisfy utopian ideals.

            This argument could go on forever. Is a male model as valuable as a female supermodel? Is a teaching assistant or more value than a school manager – many indeed are. Is a road sweeper more valuable than the entire news staff of the BBC? Unquestionably.

          During this time I attempted to fight my corner when I was a young estate agent, doing exactly the same job as my male colleague – both single and living at home, valued properties, had company cars, showed clientele around properties and followed a sale through to conclusion. He earned £2,000 pa more. When I queried with my male bosses why ? shoulders were shrugged with no regard to the 1970 Act whatsoever. In fact I had typing skills which should have warranted more, but it was a different time where it was a ‘given’ that men earned more.

    BBC London News is anxious to tell us the Met Police ought to be investigating more cases of FGM. Whilst the NHS logged two-and-a-half-thousand cases last year (presumably in London alone) only 200 were considered by the Rozzers and, as we know, none made it as far as the Beak.

    The Old Bill plaintively cry ‘most cases happened before people came into the country’

    Naturally this situation is framed by the BBC as a failing of the Police.

    Common sense would question what kind of barbarians are we letting into this country?

    Do you want to be driven in a minicab by a bloke who would happily do this to his daughters? Be served a fried chicken by him? Have him deliver your supermarket shop? Know that his vote counts equal to yours in an election? Have a nice day now, man in search of a better life….

      “The Old Bill plaintively cry ‘most cases happened before people came into the country’”.
      This is the problem I became aware of some years ago. It is a fact that most of the abuse did occur outside the UK. However, the ‘do-gooders’ jumped in and started setting up clinics all over the UK to put the problem that occurred elsewhere, right. All down to the NHS i.e. the taxpayer. I doubt very much whether this fact and its cost was included in the Migration Watch report that showed immigration doesn’t pay overall. And that’s not in any way a criticism of Migration Watch.

    Never too early for BBC Radio 4 Toady to push the politically correct agenda. Mishal Hussain was positively salivating talking to the scientist who removed the DNA from the bones of the ‘Cheddar Man’ who is thought to have died 10,000 years ago. The scientist declared that these were the remains of a dark brown skinned man with blue eyes. She went on to say that this was the typical appearance of people in continental Europe for the time.

    Ah yes, but what about the iceman Otzi (who was not mentioned) an extremely well preserved ice mummy found on the border of France and Austria twenty-five years ago? That didn’t need DNA testing for appearance and skin colour because he still had his skin which was Caucasian, in other words white. Otzi was dated from 3500 years BC, 5500 years ago; that leaves 4000 years for the evolution of Cheddar Man to evolve a white skin, impossible by evolutionary possibilities. This is yet another ‘report’ another report with sweeping generalisations that is allowed to go unchallenged because it promotes the message the BBC is pushing. The BBC and its allies are rewriting British history in order to reinforce the notion that the invaders who are swamping the country are already part of our history.

      Chris Stringer (the celebrated paleoanthropologist and author of this research) is one of the leading proponents of the recent African origin hypothesis or ″Out of Africa″ theory. Many argue a more complex human origin.

      I’ve read much of Stringers work and I find an undertone in his research fitting a modern political narrative. That is my reading of him generally.

      I will examine the scientific methodology and analysis used and draw my own sceptical conclusions.

    It’s healthier to chuckle than to rant. The latest left wing nonsense they’ve been cooing about is the scientific findings re “Cheddar Man”. Although there was no skin left on the remains we are told he was dark skinned and even more unlikely, had blue eyes! This is stunningly detailed and very fortunate. He ticks all the pc boxes in one bag of bones. So, he’s not so much Cheddar Man more a Chapati and Chips Man. A truly multicultural hybrid / mongrel.

    Rebecca Long Bailey on R4, shadow busines secretary – she sounds like she is 12 years old and seems to have nothing to add merely to knock the what the Government are doing – talking about Gig economy.

    Why can’t people accept that if you make choices of what you want to do then there are pluses and minuses – “we need true legal status for gig workers…”

    I have been self employed for 30 years and I know exactly what it means and struggle to understand why she doesn’t

    She does the same with the customs Union discussion – adds nothing talks in generalities – but given all the time she wants – no interruptions.. BBC at it’s best

    We are all doomed if this is the best they have..

Both have very little original thought, but are obviously capable of being trained to repeat short phrases. As long as the Today interviewer doesn’t interrupt, they are both capable of giving us the Labour line.

    Quite rightly, the BBC celebrates Elon Musk’s amazing achievement of putting a rocket into space. Sadly, it didn’t have room for one interesting aspect, this creation of private enterprise is 90% cheaper than the state owned NASA rockets, yet more efficient. Yes, I did say 90%, sorry? You are not surprised? Perhaps that’s why the BBC didn’t mention it in their web story.

      ASI,
      I’m afraid that After being exposed to so much attempted brainwashing over multiculty diversity nonsense I am now sceptical about scientific ‘findings’ believing that even they can be susceptible to pressure from the one worlders. But even if it is true that this chap had dark skin so what, how is that relevant ten millennia later? Of course I know that the BBC et al want to show us white English that this isn’t our land , but they don’t understand why we object to mass migration , loads of diversity and multiculturalism.
      We object for three principal reasons.
      Firstly no one ever asked us if we wanted it.
      Secondly, we agree that a small amount of migration and hence diversity is a good thing but that too much destroys our cherished culture and way of life. We think that we are well beyond the optimum point of diversity and that our way o life is under serious threat.
      Thirdly, our small Islands are already far too crowded and that we don’t want any more people whether they be white, black, brown or yellow.

        DT – I think the lefty media love this sort news because they like to think of all of us (who object to unrestricted immigration) as right wing skinheads/Alf Garnett types (you know the sort of thing we all sit on a see-saw opposite a mild mannered, little old Hindu granny and shout obscenities at her).
        To be honest after hearing this I have spent very little of the day punching walls, punching my wife or kicking the dog.

        Smearing their opponents (however subtly) as Nazis is the only way the left can avoid having any sort of sensible debate about the risks to our society and culture of unrestricted immigration. The Cathy Newman/Jordan Peterson debate also followed the same lines with Cathy (our doughty lefty feminist) trying to smear Jordan as some sort of woman hating reactionary – and failing miserably.

        The BBC think this piece of news is some sort of “Yah boo ” moment proving that the likes of Soros and Kalgeri were right all along but all it really is, is either good or bad science. They can joyfully parade this “startling ” piece of news as much as they like but in reality it changes nothing – Most of us still dont want our society swamped by masses of people who dont like us and dont respect our rules and standards. Skin colour is immaterial.

        I am sure the unsaid implication is that all of us “racists” will be really annoyed by this. Well sorry BBC most of us are not. Maybe forty years ago the left may have possibly have had a point but I am afraid most of us have moved on – interesting that the only organisation that hasnt moved on is the achingly “rIght on ” BBC.

        Oh Dear Aunty why oh why dont you just talk to us instead?

    Double whammy from the Breakfast sofa. First an extended Mrs Tiggywinkle moment with Ms Minchin holding a real live hedgehog, whose numbers have declined by 50% apparently. This without doubt is due to modern intensive farming, habitat loss through hedge removal, pesticides and, almost an afterthought, badgers.
    What was ignored included massive changes in pesticide toxicity, many miles of hedge replacement combined with conservation headlands, shelter belts and mixed woodland plantations, not the sprawling mono-culture blocks so beloved of the Forestry Commission. Most significant of all – not wanting to upset such favourites as Brian May or Mr Packham – has been the immense rise in badger numbers together with the unpalatable fact that dear old Brock is the hedgehog’s one significant and voracious predator. Best not to dwell on that though.
    What has been dwelled on, as other contributors have noticed, is the revelation that ‘Cheddar Man’ had a dark skin. Oddly enough, if even those few pallid skins among modern BBC staff were continuously exposed to sun, rain and wind, without the benefits of suncreams, hats and high-rise flatlets, they too would take on a quite dusky hue – but they would still be at heart, very probably, Cro-Magnon or even Anglo-Saxon.

      All most intriguing.

      Pondering in a Darwinian sense, if global populations are all descended from Lucy, one supposes the first expats to cross the land bridge from Calais would be designed still on the old template.

      However, as the eons unfolded, it appears that certain evolutionary adaptations took hold to cope with the local conditions.

      Jumping on the Med express from Libya may have compressed the time frame beyond Gaia’s ability to compensate, and possibly explain why the ‘benefits’ of diversity are outweighed by compromises trying to cope with unsuitable environments.

      So what she is saying is likely not what she would want to be said.

    It takes some chutzpah to spin this highly desirable outcome into ‘oppression’ for women. Obviously if you want to sit in the warm drinking coffee and chatting with your friends you will not earn as much money as if you were out working instead. We hear of ‘unequal earnings’ but they never discuss how awful a lot of jobs are. One woman’s partner works in sewers or something from what I can hear.

    Back to the memo. A few days ago I posted that the memo released in the USA about FBI surveillance of a Trump campaign worker may be the start of the exposure of the liberal left take over of the deep state. Someone posted a reply saying that whilst it could be so , how would the people ever hear the truth in sufficient numbers if the left leaning MSM decided to suppress and rubbish the story as they were very likely to do.
    Well the last few days have shown that the person who replied was exactly right. Over in the USA the Liberal left MSM are rubbishing and undermining the memo with what look like even greater lies than those exposed by the memo.
    The episode is showing the extreme level of political corruption that exists in almost all US government agencies and the MSM . It seems that Clinton and Obama succeeded in placing their people in every strategically important post in the US government and MSM. This march through the institutions may have been so successful that they are able to survive not just the shocking level of illegality already exposed by the Nunes memo, but that which is almost inevitably going to be exposed in the future months.
    The MSM who should be thirsting to expose serious wrongdoing at the highest level of government are in fact complicit not just in the cover up of the wrongdoing but are actually complicit in the wrongdoing in the first place. Trump was wrong when he described Washington as a swamp, it is actually an open sewer and we have no reason to suspect that the situation right across the West is any better.

    BBC 1 Lunch time news. A story about the pollution plastic drinking straws are causing in the seas around the Western Isles off north west Scotland. The backdrop is the beautiful Arran island coastline and the camera homes in on a small group of school children from Glasgow, who call themselves ‘The Ocean Defenders’.
    Immediately the viewer can almost feel the growing panic that is building up in the BBC London trained cameraman as he frantically trains his camera in on each child’s face as if desperately seeking something, something that should be there but on this occasion is not. You can almost feel the cold sweat dripping slowly down the man’s neck and experience the rapid pulse beating like a gallows drum in his neck as he arrives at the horrific but inevitable conclusion.

    There are no black or brown faces…the children are all…white!

    As the children are explaining how they are going to combat the pollution the discarded straws can cause, you swear that you can almost hear the sound of sobbing as this once proud man realises that he will now be forever limited to filming M25 traffic jam news updates for the remainder of a once promising career!

      Ditto for Liverpool who mope over their 96-but don`t give the same outrage to a Rhys Jones or a James Bulger-when THESE are by far the more poignant and portentous stories, so I`d have thought.

    Marky..I have never read such tosh – self engrandisment..and to say they did a tribute concert so the victims didn’t “die in vain”. WTF

    I am pretty sure all of the families would rather have their loved ones alive – they still died in vain….
    The whole article is about them…sure they feel much better now..
    Do I sound a little cynical..
    I may have had some sympathy if they had at least called out terrorism in the name of Islam…

      In our upside down world of politics, those who think themselves all knowing, have convinced themselves this Union has brought us unprecedented peaceful times.
      The harsh reality, of course, is that the fourth Reich will be the cause of the next war in Europe.

      wonder how Nicola Sturgeon thinks that will look in, say 10 years time, when hopefully we will be protecting Mulsim women from being forced to wear such babaric clothes.

      ….Unless by then Nicola Sturgeon is being forced to wear a burkha by then.

    Vegetarian and vegan: A quarter of UK dinners have no meat or fish

    Anyone outside the BBC actually believe this? Only person I know indulged in leaving out meat through January. One of the few vegans I know gave it up before christmas because she kept passing out.

      ..meaning that some of those were people having a steak at lunchtime , and then a pizza in the evening.

    The BBC continue with their reports on deepfake porn.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-42975101

    This report give them an opportunity to show something rather unpleasant in a fake video of President Trump.

    Be very careful BBC. This can backfire.
    There are lots of fairly accurate porn images of Laura K with legs spread wide apart, and even more degrading are those of the lovely Mishel the Moslem taking it up the rear.

      Just read the Guardian article.
      So the author is not saying what Petersen says but what other people say Petersen says.

      He says that Petersen is attractive to the far right and even Nazis.

      So what he is saying is that Treezer should not allow him to enter the UK

    Laurie and guest/s sneered at ‘populist’ concern about a ‘EUSSR’.
    They should look to Germany. The socialists (SPD) who won 20% of the vote and are currently on 17% in the polls, have virtually taken over the government. That, in turn, will be pushing for Germany to disappear and merge into a greater Europe. Amused, Laurie?
    The CDU are left with very little: few significant cabinet posts, no policy distinguishable from socialist redistributive enthusiasm. But then, it was all about keeping Merkel in power. Only the Defence Minister, Ursula van der Leyen, is CDU among the ‘big posts’. And she is a very Merkel-like figure.
    Europe 2.0 is coming. And my my, doesn’t it look ever so democratic?
