Weekend Open Thread

 

Trump says the NHS is in crisis and British politicians, doctors, media types all rushed to its defence saying that it is the best health service in the world doing wonderful work for half  the money of the US system….and we thought the NHS was in a crisis…have to stop listening to the BBC….and clearly money doesn’t therefore bring you a better NHS.  No?

Also the Mail had Trump with his hair going feral splashed across its frontpage yesterday.  Distinct lack of outrage from our moral guardians about the hated Mail abusing people for their looks or for trivialising politics and endangering democracy as the Mail obviously did when it got the scoop on ‘Legs-It’ and got sent to the naughty corner, over to the far right, by Aunty.

Spot any more Trumpophobia [how long have you got?] note it all here…..

      It has to be handed to the political class at all levels . They all think an increased population is a good thing and use poisonous words like vibrancy and diversity and enrichment – but no bugger made any plan for the impact on services and we poor punters who suffer the consequences of their policies .

      It’s not about who you vote for – they have all done this to us . The media surpressed comment for years – dissidents like Farage/ UKIP were are reviled by career politicians of all colours .

      And then the increased population is not identified as the problem of public services but underfunding is the cause -according to al beeb.

      I am not a customer of their public services any more but I make more than my fair share to pay for them – making the point not to pay for the state broadcaster

      Douglas Murray is another shouting in a void and treated with distain by liberal commentators
      Like Peterson and the very few sensible others who hold up the flame

      There is a cogent and important story, but the MSM is ignoring it

      In response to a question in the House of Commons by Labour MP John Woodcock, who demanded to know why the Government is refusing to release figures on the number of returned jihadists being prosecuted.
      Speaking for Sharia May’s government, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department Victoria Atkins MP confirmed that “we know that more than 850 UK-linked individuals of national security concern travelled to engage with the Syrian conflict” and that “over 15 per cent” are presumed killed, with “just under half” thought to have returned to Britain.
      She then admitted that “A significant proportion of those individuals who have already returned are assessed as no longer being of national security concern” — meaning they have not been prosecuted and are at large in the country — possibly not even under active surveillance.

      The only time I heard the Oxfam story mentioned on Today was on the review of the papers. So any claims of bias by omission can be refuted but the time considering the story can be measured in seconds. Similarly any suggestion that a Remain campaign is funded by Soros. Today did cover the Telegraph ‘s story about him, but only in the glint of an eye.

      Remember Saint Jo was in charge of Oxfam around that time (circa 2009/10). Then her husband is allowed to resign after several accusations of sexual misconduct in his charity. The BBC this morning briefly mentioned the Oxfam sex scandal but compared to the coverage in the MSM and social media of women being paid to act as hostesses to rich , conservative white men these charity workers have got off lightly. Confirmation bias on a massive scale.

      A good old socialist slogan , but not one they would use nowadays as it would show that they & the Nazi,s were all left wingers .

        I don’t think any political party has had the word “Fascist” or “Nazi” in it, or anyone has called themselves a “Fascists” or a “Nazi” since 1945. Nazi was short for National Socialist, so no political party has ever called themselves a “Nazi party” or anyone has ever call themselves a “Nazi“.

        However those who called themselves Fascists or National Socialists all regarded themselves as left-wing. The idea that they were right-wing comes from their fellow left-wing enemies, originally the Communists.

        Today in Scotland we have a Nationalist political party which is also a Socialist political party. These National Socialists are recognised by the BBC as left-wing.

    The bBC, and another champion of diversity exposed as a racist bigot
    French Muslim singer quits TV show amid row over online posts
    A Muslim singer who became an internet sensation following her performance on France’s The Voice has quit the TV show after being criticised for comments she had made on social media. In one post, Mennel Ibtissem, 22, had expressed doubts about the terrorist nature of the 2016 Nice lorry attack. She said the message from the day after the attack was taken out of context.
    And
    after men burst into a church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray killing an elderly priest, she said: “The real terrorist is our government.”

    The bBC then lets everybody know her side of the story:
    After the posts emerged, Ms Ibtissem apologised, saying she “obviously condemned terrorism”. But on Friday, she announced she was leaving the programme. In a video posted on Facebook in English she said: “I’ve never meant to hurt anyone and the idea that I would do it on purpose pains me a lot. “[I’ll] keep spreading my message of peace and tolerance, far from all types of fanaticism.”

    Here is what the bBC left out about the poor little ‘french’ girl:
    she had also expressed support for the comic Dieudonné, who was convicted several times for anti-Semitic and racist comments in French courts, for the ideologue Tariq Ramadan, who preached “for a Muslim conquest of Europe from within” (and is now under arrest on suspicion of violently raping at least two women). A search of her accounts also revealed that she is close to the controversial Salafist volunteer organization Barkacity, which provides humanitarian relief to weak Muslim populations, mixing in extremist social and religious positions. Its founder and director, Idris Sihamedi, was quoted in the press claiming that “polygamy is a good way to prevent adultery, and working a veil is a sign of modesty.”

    Have to laugh at how yet another so called champion for diversity has been found out to be a racist fucking bigot who openly supports terrorism. The irony, 2 white pricks jailed as terrorists and to the bBC its a f-ing plague. Yet after the sacking of numerous non-white racist bigots (Some even have a penis ) nobody on the left has picked up how so many of their own are nasty pieces of work who should be punished for their bigoted views. You know like how the Old bill will arrest you if you tweet you asked a Muslim about a terrorist attack where 35 people were killed and 340 injured.(62 critically)

    I watched Two Hairy Bikers cooking in Spain last night. The constant refrain was that the delicious flavours were due to the Moorish influences, I kid you not it ran through the whole programme. But last week I saw Nigel Slater in Lebanon drooling over Lebanese cooking and the nice ladies preparing it. Rehabilitation and acceptance of Muslims through their cooking. They were interesting food programmes but why don’t we get cookery from Japan or Korea. It is the constant presentation of Muslims as fluffy bunnies I object to. And probably decent Muslims get fed up by the BBC constantly on about them.

    RE: Peterson v Newman.

    When Peterson explains, as an expert who had done all the research, that there is no gender pay gap why is Newman not overjoyed? After all she is supposedly all for equality. Why try and twist the facts so it seems there is loads of ‘oppression’ when in reality there is little or none?

    It exposes that ‘equality’ campaigners really want dominance, not equality. Any ‘oppression’ must be magnified as much as possible to justify demands for more and more privileges and power. She did not seem to even care about the young men he was helping. This triumphant attitude was writ-large the other morning with a whole Today programme about feminism.

    The in-group/out-group preference is hard-wired in us, which is why ‘equality’ is doomed to fail and it is dangerous to give certain groups special rights and powers – they will naturally use them to dominate other groups.

      So many points in that interview but one of the most telling was Cathy’s outrage at having to pay more for a pink helmet. That’s not gender inequality you gormless fool but market forces.

      A lesser amount of people are prepared to pay a greater amount of money for an item that is restricted in it’s quantity. Like first class/economy class or a lambo/ford.

      But you don’t have to buy the pink helmet if you don’t want to Cathy. Just buy the blue one rather than campaigning for us all to only be able to buy the blue one because you don’t like variety or can’t grasp the concept of paying more for something more selective.

      As Peterson was trying to say, making all helmets the same, the same price, the same colour is a few steps away from everyone wearing a national uniform and everyone conforming in druge inducing clothing.

    On the BBC’s channel for children (CBBC) they are now pushing Islam on every single webpage – because every single webpage has the image of a hijabi woman on it and this has been the case for the past week. Having examined the CBBC newsround website for at least half a year I can say they run more pro-Islam stories and pro-Islam symbolism than any other religion COMBINED. In fact in comparison you will barely find any other religion linked stories or any other religious symbolism being mentioned or shown at all.

    At the bottom of every CBBC webpage you will find hijabi woman, this is in addition to the various other pro-Islam stories and pro-Islam imagery they run. Here is a link to the CBBC homepage and scroll to the bottom: https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc

      Why would an item that is apparently so open to the vagaries of womens choice “I might wear it, I might not wear it” would become such an iconic symbol for a religion?

      Is there a similar item to distinguish Christian or Jewish women? Of course not because women aren’t singled out for different treatment under those religions.

    Not BBC related, and yet you just know this is right up their street.
    I met a lady, kindly, well-meaning, not a bad person but a classic LeftMob do-gooder feminist.
    She is campaigning for, would you believe it, more women in the security industry.
    Her thinking is that women represent a very small % of the employees yet have an intuitive appreciation of body language and giveaways and therefore would be an asset at, for example, border control.
    I first pointed out there was liitle campaigning for men who are very under-represented on, for example, medical courses at University. She seemed or feigned surprised
    Then I pointed out that she was herself being sexist. If body language recognition is important then this should be in the job spec. And the sex of the applicant should be immaterial.
    There was a pregnant pause when she realised that the inherent hypocrisy of her position had been rumbled.
    Yet these are the very people that so well fit the BBC ethos and are guaranteed to be given a platform.

    Bollock brown will obviously sell himself for the nice easy life to which the cunt thinks he is entitled. The c word is the most appropriate in his case.- you could see it was just a game to him

    In Iran, woman arrested for removing hijab refuses to repent despite facing 10 years in prison

    The BBC however trumpets non-Muslim women – why they decided to don…
    Women in America walked in the shoes of Muslim women by wearing a hijab
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-38836649

    and … its the Foreign Office prostrating to Allah … as it handed out free headscarves to staff and encouraged them to learn why Muslim women wear the garment as part of its World Hijab Day celebrations. The Government department, headed up by Boris Johnson, offered all employees the chance to wear a hijab for part of their day to mark the worldwide event on February 1.

    In an internal memo, the Foreign Office said that the headscarf is worn by some women who see it as representing “liberation, respect and security”. According to reports, an email sent to staff said: “Would you like to try on a hijab or learn why Muslim women wear the headscarf? Come along to our walk-in event.

    and in Sharia Mays parallel universe, her reverse Midas touch continues … Now she aims at those fighting IS. The government has long repeated warnings that fighting with any group could lead to legal consequences,as Briton who fought Islamic State group faces terror charge

      Maybe if they really wanted to teach moronic individuals why women wear the hijab, they could present them with the free hijab at their diversity workshops and then introduce them to the threat of a beating if they decided they didn’t want to wear it.

      The hijab and burkha are flat out examples of female oppression and the excuses that women choose to wear these garments is utterly irrelevant.

      If a husband beats his wife and she chooses to remain with him it doesn’t mean that it isn’t domestic abuse.

    I don’t have any statistics but in my experience it’s still quite alarming how many sheeple, including members of my close family, are still under the illusion that everything on the “news”, be it bBBC or otherwise, is to be taken as godspel.
    Only last week I was having a discussion about the so called “religion of peace” and I was subjected to the same old “yes but there are good Muslims in this country who just want to live like everybody else blah blah blah…”
    One of the younger (12) members of my family pipes up that “Miss so and so at school said its (terrorism) not because they are Muslims it’s because they are sick in the head and Islam is the religion of peace…”
    So hang on a minute, Darren Osborne, who clearly has issues, stating that the imaginary “Dave” was driving, cannot of course be given the same consideration as anyone who imagines a bloke flew to the moon on a horse?

    Eastenders started in 1985 when it was probably a realistic portrayal of the population in that part of London. Fast forward 33 years, and really ? whenever I’ve had cause to drive through the Eastern outskirts of London I’ve barely seen a white face.

    Coronation Street began in 1960 and was testament to gritty Northern life at the time – lots of humour and scraping by to survive. I’ve heard it now rivals Midsomer Murders for the amount of deaths that are portrayed.

    Phew… otherwise one fears Mr Islam might have tarnished the tranquil reputation of the otherwise unquestionable serenity of the religion of peaceful peace. For an amuse-bouche, some of the restaurant’s reviews on Trip Advisor get a little… umm…. spicy:
    ……………………………………………………………..

    —”the owner does not take constructive criticism well!”

    —”Chef has bad attitude: Delivered wrong food and when called to say the meal was wrong he told me I know nothing about food and that it was what I ordered. Took the food back to the store and he got in my face saying his food is the best in the world. When asked for a refund he got very aggressive shouting at me etc.”

    — “Never ever again: After what I witnessed last night I will never ever step foot in that place again. My partner, four friends and I went for a meal. Another table were not happy with their food and wouldn’t pay so the owner locked them in! They weren’t allowed to leave until the police came and let them go! There was a child in their party and the owner was shouting at them and the owners wife went crazy when they left.”

    —”the people in question were plain and simply not happy with the standard of food and offered to pay for their drinks and starters but in turn the owner decided to lock the door and became very aggressive and very abusive to the family of three, the little girl was terrified and was breaking her heart, I will never ever set foot inside that place again.”

    —”The boss is disgusting and treats his staff like dirt as me and my husband over heard in the kitchen! Will never return here.”

    —”Ordered a takeaway. Rang up to complain that it didn’t taste nice. Chef told me to shut up and shouted at me. Many phone calls later where they kept hanging up I decided to go to the restaurant for a refund. On arrival the manager/chef got right in my face shouting a pointing at me saying no refund and that a should take him to court. Then another chef started shouting at me. He asked me to leave which I wouldn’t without a refund so he rang the police. While waiting for the police anothe member of staff said I should just leave as i wasn’t going to get a refund and i should just leave it. 4 officers turned up in 2 cars as they had said I was so violent. The police questioned everybody and confirmed the other guests said the chef was violent not me and advised it was a civil matter.”

    So how many people have heard of this’:

    The British government reaffirmed on Thursday that it intended to lift a ban on citizens voting in UK elections if they had lived longer than 15 years outside the country. The government statement said that UK citizens would seek a law change that would enable citizens to vote in domestic elections regardless of how long they had been abroad, a rule change which will allow millions of people overseas to be able to register to vote. The 15-year time limit proved to be a constant source of frustration among British expats, particularly during the referendum on EU membership, when long-term expats felt like they were robbed of a voice. “Participation in our democracy is a fundamental part of being British, no matter how far you have travelled from the UK,” said Minister for the Constitution, Chloe Smith. “It is right that we should remove the 15-year time limit on voting rights of British citizens living overseas and allow those who previously lived in the UK the chance to participate in our democracy.”

    On a complex issue you risk your expert being a PR guy for vested industry/politics
    So that the public walk away more DISINFORMED than they were at the start.
    The trick is to put 2 counter experts on against each other, so they debunk each other.

    King was on to explain why he in 2004 Advised the government to introduce incentives for diesel cars, as this would help with CO2 reduction.
    Well he didn’t know what he was talking about in 2004 and he doesn’t know what he is talking about today.
    Consequently he made a number false statements.
    To me he seems like a PR guy wedded to the #Greenblob
    that wants to get diesels out of the way so that they can pick up SUBSIDIES for Electric cars they sell
    .. and at a political angle : bash the Tories to the benefit of Sadiq Khan.

    Well, it was written over 100 years ago and you do not have to live out every word of your national f**cking anthem. There are many reasons I think the monarchy is immoral but I have more useful things to do with my time than campaign for our national anthem to be changed. Rewriting history is so sinister.
