Agent Cob-Nut hasn’t come in from the cold yet, perhaps he’s stuck, maybe he can batter his way out with a blackpudding [no jokes about Di-abolical], or maybe he can just use it to batter his critics in the Press into silence…the BBC need have no concerns of course as he threatens ‘change is coming’….the BBC is happy to see change even if it means a Marxist, terrorist supporting wrecker in No10…or No13 according to Di-abolical.

          Why on earth would we want to invite just a few people into our country who would appreciate being here, make an effort to fit in and would bring skills and energy to our country when instead we can have thousands of uneducated morons many of whom hate us and want to just fill their pockets with free stuff and create mayhem.

          Makes sense when you realise that those doing the choosing and making the decisions dont like us either and if they can stuff enough of these “vibrant individuals” into our country we will probably end up going the same way.

        In the late nineties I worked with three South Africans who had left the rainbow nation under Mandela for life in the UK. They all said that whilst Mandela was in office life was tolerable but that as soon as he was gone there would be rapid decline into a Zimbabwe like country. It was best to get out whilst the going was good.
        I note the Aboott is speechifying about scraping all manner of UK immigration laws but we can be certain that under a Labour government white folks like these will be at the very back of the queue whilst all manner of third worlders are admitted, nay welcomed.
        Unless this combination of neo Marxists and their useful idiot liberal left dupes are defeated and then destroyed the whole of the West will become a hell hole within a few generations. This is the critical issue of the 21st century. Beside it Brexit and climate change ( even if it is real) are very small beer and yet we can talk about Brexit , talk about climate change to a fair degree but if we try to discuss the issue of invasion by third worlders and the destruction of the West that will result we can be put in prison
        P S I bet these South Africans whished that they had moved to somewhere less vulnerable to third world takeover than poor tired old Blighty. Any ideas where that might be?

    It was interesting to hear the BBC question to Steptoe after his declaration of war on the City. “Are you a Czech spy?”
    It was a closed question from the beeboid -Yes or No answer.
    Not the normal sort of question posed by a ‘professional’ journalist. More like a safe long hop designed to be driven over the boundary.

    Most investigative journalists would ask something like “What did you discuss with the Czech spy in your meetings, documented in the StB files?”

    We have learnt, today, from The Great Leader how his first priorities are to destroy the Finance Industry and the Free Press.

    The BBC are required to cover the news. The fact they actively play down / hide muslim rape gangs, black rape gangs news items can only mean they support the rape of British children if it is done by Muslim rape gangs or BAME groups. It is time to call out the BBC for their active support. This can be proven by comparative analysis – as many have noted endless stories about a jailed white taxi driver (John Worboys) and a white football coach (Barry Bennell) versus non-coverage or rapid hiding of stories by Muslim rape gangs or Muslim terrorists.

    For example blink and you would have missed a story yesterday that said an additional 100 British children are believed to have been abused in Rochdale – it only made a low priority news slot on the BBC UK and England news page and was gone within half a day.

      Yeah no emotional interviews with victims there.

      I do think most can see through their nonsense now. The cat is out of the bag and no amount of dishonesty can erase the horror of Rotherham from our collective minds. The pattern of offending is so different. There will always be the odd depraved weirdo. When rape is seen as so acceptable that you get your mates involved and pass a girl around we are clearly dealing with a whole different dimension of offending. I am sure Worboys never asked any fellow white taxi drivers if they fancied sharing a girl with him as they would have kicked the s**t out of him and called the Police.

            I would argue that the “Holocaust Memorial ” notion ought to be wound up before it does any more damage to the Jews.
            1. It`s been hijacked by the grief industry, and used to imply that Jews are no longer uniquely singled out for “special treatment”. Jews are and were. As soon as others piggy back on your cause, get out.
            2. It features only Auschwitz/Ozwecim -the date of it is when the Russians came across it. But Auschwitz was by no means typical. And the Communists have been allowed to get away without mentioning what THEY were doing at the time in similar camps. Hence the fixation on Auschwitz, as opposed to Belsen say.
            There were many death camps with worse murder rates that Auschwitz, and that it was relatively image-friendly, relatively well-preserved has made it sentimental and iconic-both beloved by the enemies of Judaism.
            3. Judaism is a movement , not a mausoleum or tribute/heritage site. It needs to move on to the NEW anti-semites who will attack the Jews at their very roots, as they themselves bleat on about parity in grief.

            Jews are unique, are uniquely treated and targeted. If I were one, I`d get out of the Holocaust theme park efforts by the Left-and move heaven and earth to let the nation know what Corbyn the left, the EU. UN and Liberals are doing-and the soft route to Auschwitz B that they`d be happy for us to go to.
            I`d teach how Nazis and Soviets combined and then competed to wipe out Poland, and then the Jews as they could. They both used the same tactics-and the BBC are using the same ones today. would that the dopey viewer knew it.
            Just looks different. But the greens, the EU, Corbyn and the quislings, Hindenbergs and Von Papens and Schleichers are all in evidence with any study of 1933-45.

        It is unfathomable it has not been just as bad elsewhere. Tommy Robinson first broke the taboo on Newsnight saying it is not ok to hang out around schools to ensnare girls and officially there have been no convictions for this offence in his home town of Luton. It must have happened at Blackburn, Bradford, Burnley et cetera and for much longer than just a decade or so.

        It is the perfect storm of officials doing everything humanly possible to ignore it and a culture which sees lying to unbelievers as not only acceptable but divinely sanctioned. Taking ‘captives of the hand’ i.e. sex slaves is also permitted according to their holy book. Why would it have only happened in one town?

        The true scale of these crimes is probably beyond our darkest nightmares.

      I, in my younger days, overheard a conversation whilst waiting to be served at a bar. It went like this. One young man says to the older man (presumably having been in a two-timing relationship with a woman): “my trust in women has run out”. The older man replied, “ask yourself, can you ever trust someone who paints their face to change their appearance”. Never forgotten that minor profound statement.

    The BBC are impartial.
    No, really they are.
    On Toady this morning, the Corbyn spy scandal was finally addressed by Mischel ‘useless’ Hussein at her polite best.
    A two hander. On one hand, a Labour spokesman, trashing the story and the messenger, and insinuating a furure assault on the freedom of the press. No questions asked, despite Corbyn’s evasive non-denials. On the other hand, a Daily Mail reporter being asked why they are promoting these stories and surely it is because they fear a Labour government.
    So, there we are, total impartiality.
    The leader of the opposition is accused of co-ordinating with a Czech spy, the BBC have more journalists than all of the rest of Fleet Street put together, and yet the BBC are impartially covering the story second hand, and turning it into a press freedom story.
    Perhaps they have been tipped the wink that that any future assault of the Labour trots on press freedom will not apply to them! After all, that would be like shitting in your own backyard.

    Not exactly a bBBC posting but, Labour trying to force UKIP, their only viable opposition in certain areas of the North of England, into liquidation. Just received this from party treasurer:

    Statement on the Jane Collins legal case

    No doubt you will be aware of the case brought by three Rotherham Labour MPs over comments made by UKIP MEP Jane Collins about the Rotherham child sex abuse scandal. The three Labour MPs took action over a speech which Jane gave at the UKIP autumn conference in 2014, a month after a report found about 1,400 children in the area had been abused between 1997 and 2013 (mainly by Pakistani heritage men).

    In 2017, Jane was ordered to pay £54,000 in damages to each of the three MPs – Sir Kevin Barron, John Healey and Sarah Champion. She was also directed to pay costs of £196,000.

    In December 2014 the Party decided to help Jane, to a limited degree, in funding some of her early defence costs because it believed the Party could have been more supportive in ensuring her conference speech was not libellous. However, during early 2017 the Party was made aware that Jane might not pay the damages and costs awarded by the court against her. That led to a concern that at a political level Labour might encourage their ‘Rotherham MPs’ to hound the Party for the damages and costs that Jane had failed to pay them, with the added benefit of putting UKIP out of business.

    Towards the end of 2017 the Labour MPs came after the Party which vigorously defended itself from the allegations made against it, believing all the Party had ever tried to do was support one of its most popular MEPs. Unfortunately, the courts found against the Party on certain grounds, which has led to the likelihood that costs of £100,000+ will have to paid by the Party to the Labour MPs. If Jane had settled the damages and costs of her libel case then it’s unlikely UKIP would have been caught up in this saga, however we now face the real and dangerous prospect that Labour could put UKIP to the sword. We cannot allow that to happen!

    On behalf of the Party I call on all UKIP members and supporters to come to our defence and ensure that Labour isn’t able to take UKIP out of the game at such a crucial time in the Brexit negotiations.

    We cannot allow our epitaph to be: ‘Won Brexit, killed by Labour’.

        Unfortunately, Fedup, you appear to be correct. The party consisted/consists(?) of many people who are different. They had (still have?) one main aim. Like a lot of people who are not politically minded they thought that when BREXIT Referendum vote was won, the cause was won. They went back to their homes, so to speak. Farage should have known better. He should have stayed until we left……. Although I can understand him wanting a life. Those committed activists left are not charismatic enough, like Farage, to lead. Neither are they strong enough, in the mould of Thatcher.

          Joeadam,
          “Like a lot of people who are not politically minded they thought that when BREXIT Referendum vote was won, the cause was won. They went back to their homes, so to speak.” Substitute WWII or any major period of conflict in history for ‘BREXIT’ in that sentence and the same relaxation prematurely takes place. Deep down, the basic human nature does not change irrespective of extraneous agencies such as the BBC who continually try, by fair means or foul, to alter peoples essential likes and dislikes.
          UKIP? I attended the UKIP local gatherings in the West Country some years ago. The prospective Parliamentary Candidate asked me, at the close of one meeting what I thought. I replied that I hadn’t ever really come across such a disparate bunch who continually, in public, argue amongst themselves. I was then invited to his, ‘inner sanctum’ – a small group within the bigger group who were opposed to the rest and who were of the same non-petty mindedness. It seemed to me that UKIP was in a permanent state of civil war. ‘Human nature’? I refer to my opinion above M’lud.

            Having been a UKIP member for around three years, a few months before the leadership election I decided to return to branch meetings. I had stopped attending when I thought it was chaotic and pointless. Well, the branch was still in trouble and short of people prepared to contribute to the work involved, so I ended up with the job of Hon Sec, albeit only in a caretaker role for a few months.
            During discussions on the leadership issue, I was the minority of one, in supporting AMW. The sad sorry debacle of Bolton and Farridge smearing AMW and her supporters was disgraceful, but nobody at branch was bright enough to see it.
            At the final meeting I attended, as Sec, but in the premeeting discussion came this pearl of wisdom from an ex-chair of the branch:
            “The only reason AMW is against muslims is because she’s a lesbian.”
            Verbatim.
            And yes, you’ve guessed it, I was the minority of one again in taking the moron to task.
            Sadly, the chair hadnt opened the meeting, so I couldn’t minute it.
            Bolton ( and Farridge) had smeared AMW, muddied the waters ( no pun intended) and then that bunch of candidates quit the race to concentrate the anti AMW vote.
            Was I truly pissed off !
            Anyhoos, quitting the party immediately followed.
            Agree with above: UKIP are fucked.

          I’m beginning to wonder who is the most negative about Ukip the people on this blog or the msm!
          Just to bring people up to date with the news from a different perspective.
          Ukip have had a pretty hard time, in part their own making.
          This year at a lacklustre leadership campaign they elected one Henry Bolton. Under him the party was doomed to oblivion. People stopped renewing their subs. There was no way out that I could see.
          Then wham! The Bolton affair! And the membership suddenly springs to life with a vigour not seen for a long while. Bolton is removed. Farage, who supported Bolton, has his past behaviour within the party exposed.
          Farage refuses to be leader of a party that doesn’t give him dictatorial powers.
          The party membership now realize this and are still determined to drive forward. The first hurdle was getting rid of Bolton. Second will be paying the Collins debt and third will be surviving a pasting at the May local elections. If it can pass these tests then it will have matured as a political party. The energy is there at the moment. (No thanks to Farage)

Notwithstanding that calorie counting was panned by other studies decades ago, they had the latest silly food scare story from some supposed scientist researchers which initially suggested that men eat more than 50% more calories, the figure given being as 1000, than they truly need each day. If you know anything about the human body and food calories, then as an Editor or Presenter you would have politely told the PR company to take their cod science (fake science) away and do some study at a suitable University.

    It was also amusing that, considering the research in average terms, the BBC had obviously not checked the researchers’ sums. But then, BBC maths – whether mental arithmetic or via a calculator – is none too hot. Corrections were hastily introduced as the day progressed, reducing the percentage to ‘approximately’ 35% too many calories. Eaten by men. Not women. Those dreadful men. Eating too much. Stealing food from the mouths of women and children. How evil! How unequal!!! Say no more.

    Now, if anything it is UK women who tend to be overweight or obese. This is quite a well known fact. I did my own little ‘Fat Check’ [pun intended, BBC please note 😉 ] while out in the real world. A simple visual check confirmed this fact: that women tend to be more overweight or more obese than men.

    That suggests that the extra calories, being consumed by ‘men’ must be being burned (utilised) by their bodies due to their individual metabolism and/or physical activity. Compared to women. Those wonderful, saintly perfect, unfairly treated, unequally paid and fed, wimmin.

    Just a little observational science. BBC journalists, around and about in various parts of the UK could have done what I did yesterday. They could have then informed Sarah Sands that, as TODAY Editor in Chief, this study was definitely not worthy of her programme and her listeners’ attention.

      Bad Science is an absolutely brilliant book about how journalists in particular misunderstand basic science. This sounded like a typical example, you can bet none of the arts graduate beeboids reporting on this had science degrees – it was just a good excuse to look virtuous and fill the airwaves with something other than the terrible realities of what is actually happening in this country.

      Whenever you hear of an ‘investigation’ or ‘survey’ there are loads of hurdles a proper scientific study has to get over to even be run let alone taken seriously, and of course liberal journalists ignore intellectual rigour when the result of a test fits their narrative. “One in four has witnessed sexual harassment” which we heard the other day was clearly total boll**ks as the premise was so poorly defined.

        Beeb Bro, think it may also be a condemnation of the education most of them have had. I was taught about calories, metabolism, physical variations, differences between men & women re food, fat levels, body heat, insulation, blah, blah, blah, when I was 11-14 years old. (I dropped Biology for the ‘O’ exams.)

        Back then kids got an education. I suspect that journos in their 30s and 40s were not taught ANY of that basic biology and food stuff in the 1980s and 1990s. Goodness knows how well kids will be educated when they hit the world of work in 10 – 15years time with all the relationship training, global warming/climate change and social awareness training they will be having in school right now. No wonder the current lot are total snowflakes at Uni.

        Sarah Sands is of an age when she should know better, as are Robinson, Webb, Montague and Humphrys.

        They do not always appear to make clear who the sponsors of these so-called ‘studies’ and ‘research’ are and who, exactly, has brought them to the BBC. Think often it may be a PR company or the University at top level, not the Dept itself or the scientists/researchers who did the work. TOADY normally mention if the item is a published paper and, if so, the journal involved.

        I guess that no-one on the programme had enough knowledge or could be bothered, even for £650,000 per year, to challenge what was being put forward and point out the obvious flaws therein.

        We are very badly served by the BBC for the £3.7bn that we give them under duress.

        Well, I don’t. And will not, in part because of this sort of thing. Lat week we had a so-called scientist state outright, on national radio during TWatO, that “Sugar causes cancer.” with no comment, no challenge whatsoever from the Presenter. This from a broadcaster who is concerned about FakeNews and FalseNews and FalseFacts from others in the media!

        Ha-hah!

    Two killings by stabbings yesterday in the same London Borough. Both thought to be teenage boys in separate incidents .

    At this rate London will have more stabbed dead teenagers in the first 2 months of 2018 than the whole of 2017. This is reported in George Osborne s Evening Standard. I’m guessing al Beeb isn’t reporting it again.

    If I remember from my studies the average total homicide level for England/Wales per annum is about 550 and has Been that for quite sometime .

      “I’d like to know with the increase is caused by extra 500 000 thirdworlders and their enriching diverse cultures and er – heritage – lovely word so sadly used now”. Therein lies the secret. No broadcaster will readily convey that fact for fear of creating ‘racial disharmony’. Or, I rephrase, ‘fanning the flames of existing racial disharmony’.

      Taffy,
      This is a threat to be taken very seriously. I have not the slightest doubt that if Labour get elected they will severely curtail freedom of the press and what little freedom of speech we have left. The BBC will be boosted as it can be relied upon to tow the leftist line. The internet will also be censored. Once Corbyn and his gang of neo Marxists have got control of the news agenda and the ability to shut down open discussion and dissent they will be able to resist all but the most concerted efforts to remove them by democratic means . Who will be our Solidarity leader to overthrow what will rapidly become a hated Marxist totalitarian regime and how many will die trying to do so?
      These predictions and questions seem like a dystopian fantasy but I believe that a Corbyn Government would make them very real indeed.

    Last night Channel Four broadcast a documentary on Harvey Weinstein and his antics in Britain. It was a disturbing watch and insight as to how the law protects the very wealthy.

    There was however one very interesting 5 second quip that Weinstein had some connection to the BBC and had on occasion undertaken work for them.

    It didn’t go any further than that, however it’s doubtful Channel Four would have sufficient insight, nor was it the main thrust of the documentary, but it would seem that there is yet another potential scandal brewing for the Corporation.

    Whether this will gain any traction is yet to be seen, but the documentary alleges that Weinsteins behaviour was well known in the industry and many many people including the leftie luvvies simply turned a blind eye.

    If it can be shown that this also happened at the BBC it would be dynamite.

    The campaign against “The Knob” must continue with unrelenting fury until the day of the next general election. Here is why.

    The historian Dominic Sandbrook recently wrote that Corby was not only unfit to be Labour leader, he was unfit to be a Labour MP. Behind this statement lies the fact that Corbyn hates this country, or rather the traditions and ways of life that define the British character. His support for some of the most unpleasant terrorist organisations of the last 50 years, including at least one active in this country, is well know. He loathes private enterprise. The idea that there is no freedom without economic freedom is a concept that is simply beyond his comprehension. Why should it be, he has no idea how wealth is created in the first place. Under Corbyn, the internal security services would be politicised and external defence cut to the bone. Whatever the truth behind the links to eastern European spy networks, he was undoubtedly seen as a Useful Idiot, First Class.

    I travelled to Cuba a couple of years ago. This is a society that Corbyn admires. Try telling that to our first guide, a middle-aged lady who was in tears at lunch as she told us about a nephew in the United States that the State had forbidden her to visit. Or our second guide who welcomed us with the statement – “I am living in fucking Alcatraz”. Later he expanded on his fate which he blamed on the top-level takeover by the “rich daddy boys” Castros. Behind this statement of course is the knowledge that the Castros were not really communists to start. They first looted everything on the island and were forced a couple of years later to ask for a bail out from the Soviets.

    There are no shops as we would understand them in Cuba, a few people drive around in stinkmobiles left over from the 1950 and the once grand city of Havana rots while the people try to survive. Just yards from our hotel in the centre, a road had been blocked off because an old building had suddenly crumbled and fallen into the street.

    There are enough examples around the world to show us just what Corbyn and his crew would do if they ever got into government. Shame on the Labour party for tolerating him and his minority gang and shame on all those MPs for going along with it, despite knowing full well the disaster that awaits if he should ever gain power.

    Their solution to the ‘problem’ would be that such awful people shouldn’t be able to vote for such candidates…in other words, don’t allow people with a different opinion to yours have a vote! Sinister?

    Meanwhile what news of prancing mime Michael Sheen who recently announced that he was thinking of taking some time out in the light of Brexit and Trump, adding “as the Nazis had to be stopped in Germany in the thirties, this thing that is on the rise has to be stopped”. Apparently Mr Sheen is awfully keen on the steelworkers at Port Talbot, stout fellows and all that, salt of the earth. He has spoken of taking his activism to the Welsh Valleys where no doubt he will carry all before him.

    Reality check: In the Brexit referendum, the Welsh voted to leave. Only five areas of Wales voted to remain.

    Supreme Court holds that two women who were sexually assaulted by Worboys can claim compensation from the police as they (the police) did not investigate their claims properly.

    In investigating the vast number of alleged hate speech crimes, enlist the aid of all the muslim charities (aka The Muslim Brotherhood collectively) and turn them loose on the perps. to exercise their taqiyya. I appreciate that would mean limbs and heads being chopped off and/or stoning or being doused in petrol and set alight and/or being pushed off the top of buildings and/or being quartered for those who are responsible for hate speech. But it’s only a matter of time before these solutions become the norm anyway. Beauty is, they’re all set out in the cults handbook.

    Roland, you ask when all this luvvie grandstanding will start to have an effect with audiences, otherwise known as the “Basket of Deplorables”. It already is. Figures from the American box office show that ticket sales last year were 6.2 per cent down on 2016. The drop in revenue was slightly less at 2.7 per cent, suggesting that prices were hiked to disguise the large falls. This of course in the end will make the condition worse.

    If you take out all the high cost, high grossing films that are little more than computer games for the sub 16 year old market, the offering are rather thin. Like you I am choosy about what I watch since I don’t want to spend £12 for a lecture on my supposed moral failings. Of course the kids stuff that makes all the money don’t get any awards. Why draw attention to complete dross? – leaving just the preachy stuff where you get bonus virtue signaling points for attending.

    Also being affected by liberal contempt is the American football league. Here many of the star players earning countless millions of dollars a year have been playing silly people and refusing to stand for the national anthem. Since most people who attend football love their country, the tantrums have not gone down well. Attendances are down at the actual matches and the owners fear the effect on next year’s sale of season tickets.

    Treble own goals all round.

    You always teach kids the importance of taking responsibility for their actions. How could people vote in someone as untried and problematic as Trump, especially when you had the entire media, internet, big business etc on your side and your party had just been in power for 8 years? Clearly you are doing something wrong if you still cannot win the election. To just have a tantrum and blame it on a bogey man is pathetic. The BBC did the same when they had the chutzpah to blame the election results on ‘fake news’; nothing to do with sneering elites treating us like naughty toddlers.

    Despite this Neill continued to use the term’ transition’. The BBC will obviously use any term possible so long as it agitates the government. Not surprisingly Gwynne (Lab MP) repeatedly used the word transition.

    The BBC agenda is so blatantly left wing anti Brexit that I cannot imagine anyone suggesting otherwise.

    Stew: Good news about the AfD. Trouble is, it looks very much like Merkel has, once again, manipulated everything into place for 3.5 more years with her at the helm. With the help of the pathetic SPD she looks to stay put in a ‘Grand Coalition’. All that matters is to grab power now, never mind future losses; the CDU is going to lose more votes to the AfD big time. She doesn’t care one bit; no children, so after her, let the deluge come…
    In fact, she’s appointed a lightweight successor, Kramp-Karrenbauer (female, of course, predictably) as CDU Sec. Genl. This means no challenge from experienced colleagues for 3.5 years. Typical Merkel: ALWAYS making sure there are no logical heavyweights/potential successors around, who could threaten her position.
    Her mind is very Blair-like; she is scheming, cunning and ruthless. And unlike Blair, she has made sure there is no Gordon Brown around. She has a skin far thicker than our Tony, who has to think about the kids and the missus. She learnt from Comrade Honecker; sadly – no revolution in sight this time. How much longer for the master of black magic? Hopefully not 3.5 years. She can do a lot more damage in that time-possibly we ain’t seen nothing yet. And the clueless little, old ladies who have ALWAYS voted CDU since Adenhauer, sit around the table to chat over coffee and cake, pleased at how well the Winter Olympics are going.

      taffman (and for fnw above), if I recall correctly, the EU has not formally agreed to a transition period yet. It still requires 27 States to OK it. M. Barnier and others in the EU heirarchy have indicated that if it is agreed, they would like it to run only until the end of December 2020 after which a new EU Budget period will commence.

      And behind it of course are those other tropes: the demonization of men, the victimhood of women.

    Just a thought. Given that Labour and the lefty remoaners are getting really desperate regarding Brexit, could the leaking of the Hungarian files regarding Cob be an underhand conspiracy to remove him and replace him with a real hard line ‘remainer’ in his place. He has been rather ineffectual in the whole affair and has angered those hard liners for not making more of a noise. Despite his recent election result he has enraged a lot of the Labour left??

      Interesting piece of cunning . I’ve always thought since Comrade Corbyn accidentally became a rock star the plan was for him to do his act, get elected and then hand it over to McDonald if the majority was big enough.

      Labour must still be weighing up the effect of changing policy and going for remaining versus the effect on the labour supporting donkeys who would vote for a monkey if it was wearing a red Rosette.

      The comrades at the labour publicity department -al Beeb – are cutting their cloth accordingly thus downplaying or ignoring the spying allegations – which I’m surprised haven’t come up ages ago.

      Obviously corbyns policy has always to bet us away from the Americans / nato in order for the Rooskis to widen their sphere of influence whatever their flag design .

      224 BBC website pages use the phrase
      Recent job advert

      “If you’re a budding journalist … apply for … the world of television production at the heart of the BBC

      The BBC will be required to give “greater focus to UNDERSERVED AUDIENCES audiences, in particular those from black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds and from the nations and regions which are currently less well served”.

    NFU has first female leader!

    How much more of this crap do we have to endure? We have had a black president, a female prime minister, female head of police, a Muslim mayor of London and so on. What about the content of your character? You know if Chukkus Urmoney ran for Labour leader they would be all over his skin colour, and neglect the fact that he is a spineless opportunist; just as with Hillary it was ‘mysogyny’ which lost her the election and not the fact that she is a sneering and corrupt compulsive liar.

    Someone not white or male did something somewhere! Wow – what a news story. Worth every penny of the £3.7 billion funding.

    I was amused to hear ‘security correspondent’ Frank Gardner telling us what it is to be human on Jeremy Vine today. After his piece we were assured that he can confidently speak to the camera and tell us when he doesn’t know the answer.

    Now my impression of Mr Gardner is that 99% of his output is speculative waffle that anyone could come up with. Indeed it’s not likely that the ‘security services’ put out press releases at critical times and it does kind of go against the security ethos to blab so how can he be ‘informed’?

    Just found this on a very rare visit to the BBC’s website:

    Why you can trust BBC News

    The BBC is recognised by audiences in the UK and around the world as a provider of news that you can trust. Our website, like our TV and radio services, strives for journalism that is accurate, impartial, independent and fair.

    Our editorial values say: “The trust that our audience has in all our content underpins everything that we do. We are independent, impartial and honest. We are committed to achieving the highest standards of accuracy and impartiality and strive to avoid knowingly or materially misleading our audiences.

    “Our commitment to impartiality is at the heart of that relationship of trust. In all our output we will treat every subject with an impartiality that reflects the full range of views. We will consider all the relevant facts fairly and with an open mind.”

    Research shows that, compared to other broadcasters, newspapers and online sites, the BBC is seen as by far the most trusted and impartial news provider in the UK.

    I’ll leave it up to you whether you laugh, cry or demolish your TV set during the next BBC lie fest (you won’t have to wait long).

    Reginald Dwight

    The competitor admitted to never having heard of Suggs, and thought that Reginald Dwight ‘rang a bell’, so that was her answer. Even worse, the rest of her team hadn’t a clue either !

        Too right Toobi, watching Pointless is not good for my blood pressure. Some of them answer the simplest of questions almost with a question mark, – e.g. Capital of France, – um, Geography isn’t my strongest subject, but um, Paris ? (and that’s when there is a capital P beside the question).

        As for the ‘100’ there have been less than a handful of times when a score of 95 or more has been achieved over the years, which is depressing.

    Surely that’s the sort of thing only nasty fascists like Farage and Trump do, not pretty-boy lefties like Macron, darling of the chatterati.

    It will be interesting to see how the beebistan cover it. (Which they haven’t got around to yet – a bit slow, aren’t they, for the world’s most subsidised broadcasters?)

      Of course if that’s their culture the French will have to respect it. We should all live according to our culture. It’s just unfortunate if THEIR culture involves eating US.

        I’m afraid it is way too late for France. Their problems go back even further than ours as they had to contend with a post-colonial influx from North Africa.
        If France gets over its immigration problem it will take something extremely authoritarian and unpleasant to do it, which is what grown up observers have been warning about for years. Ultimately, Germany is in a similar situation and so are we.

        Then again, maybe that is what the far Left globalist plotters wanted all along? A sort of Reichstag moment?
