        Thought a new Thread would open for the w/e, Brissles, at any moment when I was posting on the old one. Having had two brief ‘moments in the sun’ – one by accident! – in the past, I’m none too bothered & wasn’t diligently watching or lurking.

        Having filed my Last Post and about to play same before retiring, I checked and lo – and behold! Crafty Fedup2 managed to camouflage the new one by placing it underneath the Mid-week Thread and the extra Arsenal footie Thread on the Home Page. Nice one, Fed! You played a blinder, son.

        There were only three posts up and I nearly dived in, to spend time between the posts, and congratulate Cassandra for her header (enough with the footie analogies, already!) but couldn’t think of anything more than that, so didn’t. Book at Bedtime claimed my attention instead.

        As it’s Literary festival time, I’m not sure why William Trevor is regarded so highly, at the Beeb and elsewhere. I was underwhelmed by Tuesday to Friday’s offerings and wish he had expanded the Monday night offering, ‘The Piano Teacher’s Pupil’, into a full novella or novel.

        Hope there is a better one next week.

      http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5796759/RICHARD-PENDLEBURY-Tommy-Robinson-global-celebrity-jailed.html

      Not really BBC but a nice little hit piece by Richard Pendlebury on Tommy Robinson that would do the BBC proud full of inaccuracies and accusations.. Comments are mixed with quite a few in favour of Tommy .

      What struck me however were the comment votes. With one particular comment saying he was scum and anyone who supports him needs watching outnumbering the down votes by some 5000 to 1000 – interesting, I think someone on the Mail has been busy.

      This really was an establishment lick spittle piece which the Mail has become very adept at. We need to remember this was the “right of centre” paper that championed the rise to the top of our current sharia compliant PM. Now it seems to be focusing energy on people like Tommy who represent a threat to that same craven establishment.

      After reading this rubbish the Rudyard Kipling poem “Tommy” came to mind. Truer today than it ever was – “Its Tommy this and Tommy that —————–!

        I would like to ask Richard Pendlebury who did this hatchet
        job on Robinson, did he or the rest of the fourth estate know
        anything, with what was going on with the Muslim grooming raping gangs when Tommy Robinson and Andrew Norfolk of the Times
        were reporting the atrocoties?
        I am ashamed to be a citizen of the UK the way in which Tommy Robinson was banged up for 13 months in four hours. Whilst the
        cowards at the BBC and the rest of the media kept “stumm” in
        fear of being labelled racists, for twelve years.

    abortion is a human right apparently, by golly I dont really have skin in the abortion argument, but I thought human rights were invented to stop krauts trying to wipe every jew from the face of europe, not to entitle you to kill somebody cos you cant be arsed using a condom or keeping your legs shut.

    then on to the blessed tommy, parents came from ireland and for some reason didnt have an abortion, oooooohhh how they laughed.

      Kaiser ,

      Yes they think they do satire . But true satire is making fun of the powerful and the establishment .
      Al Beeb no longer does that , instead it sneers at the powerless , as TR is now he’s banged up . Sneering at the licence payers who don’t hold liberal/ left opinions is their forte . We can’t answer back , we don’t have a media organisation to counter them , we don’t have millions of pounds to get back at them .

      Al Beeb picks on conservative people and or libertarian , patriotic , old , white , middle class , ” left behinders ” , seekers of proper justice rather than social justice , people who think you should at least try to find work , people with higher mores and values than themselves ( who don’t think “edgy ” comedy is funny ) , traditionalists and anybody dubious about the new plan for mankind that the Gramscis want .

      In short , the BBC is a bullyIng organisation .

      Perhaps it should be called the Biased Bullying Corporation .

      Or the Biased Bullying Cowards , as they back down if you do have right and might on your side .

      Which is why the creepy little “comedians ” cling to Aunty’s apron and spout the approved line on every subject . They are afraid their meal ticket will end in a proper commercial market .

      Satire ?
      Don’t make me laugh BBC . Oh you don’t you humourless , intolerant , two faced bullying cowardly troughers .

            “…gradually bring the countries of the Mahgreb, the Middle-East and Eastern-Europe in line with the single-market, not as an alternative to membership, but potentially as a step towards it.” – David Miliband, speaking at College of Bruges as Foreign Minister, Nov. 2007.
            As Miliband is no longer working for the International Rescue Committee – that’s the one financed by Soros, by the way, not the one on Tracy Island – he is continuing with his planned role as the Globalist’s puppet in No 10, a Macron or Trudeau for Britain. Hence him being parachuted in to help prevent Brexit and unlimited coverage on the BBC. Here’s a bit more about his involvement with Scott, Virgil, Alan, Gordon and John (brains being noticeable by their absence).
            https://www.ukcolumn.org/article/international-rescue-committee-trojan-horse-globalists
            Incidentally, at his speech in Bruges, he was speculating on a timescale of 2030 for Turkey and North Africa making their geography-defying leap into Europe. The ‘Eastern-Europe’ he was referring to was Ukraine… and Russia. Think you might want to run that one past Mr Putin first, although it helps explain why your old bosses pumped money into financing the Ukrainian coup.

        Kaiser and Nibor

        I listened to some of that – The News Quiz – and noted that they managed to get in two so-called jokes about Tommy Robinson. One during the Rosanne Barr item and one during the Irish abortion item. Apparently Andy Hamilton* thinks that TR’s parents should have taken the opportunity to abort him when they came from Ireland to England.

        They had to fit TR in somewhere as part of the virtue signalling onslaught against TR. Another example of them thinking that it’s ok to do this because they are nice people and all nice people hate the likes of TR don’t they? The important thing is for as many people as possible to destroy this false link.

        Also Susan Calman got in a comment about her bl**dy wife.

        * It could have been Jeremy Hardy who sounds exactly like Hamilton to me.

    This is the latest Islamic indoctrination piece by the BBC – which they put on their CBBC website today:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/23286976
    It is actually an updated “What is Ramadan” feature article that they have run for the past two weeks.

    For the past two weeks they have also had a Ramadan Quizz placed on the CBBC homepage:

    And it doesn’t stop there – they are even indoctrinating kids on their cbeebies channel (aimed at under 7’s):

    And did you know the BBC Asian Network Channel recently had a debate asking whether denying your children an Islamic learning at school (as part of Religion and Citizenship classes) is Islamophobic. This was after complaints were made that some non-Muslim parents were forbidding their children to attend such classes.

          When it comes to depicting Muslim women, the BBC adheres strictly to the Saudi/Foreign Office line. Here’s a suggestion for BBC staff: visit Pristina, the capital of Kosovo (you can fly from Luton, chance to check up with some jihadis before you go). The population there is 95% Muslim (I mean Kosovo, not Luton!). Notice how the women are not covered or veiled? You’ll see more headgear on the BBC home page than you’ll see in real life during a weekend visit. And they have beer and wine festivals to boot. But it “doesn’t fit the narrative”, does it, BBC?

                    I could see the Australians waiting alongside me in the queue exchanging looks and raised eye brows, it was the worst homecoming I’ve ever had; especially when I’d been away for a year and just endured a +12 hours long-haul flight.

    The only vehicle that should be considered for that hideous hag is a hearse.
    When I switched on some bint was having an emotional breakdown. I suppose she is a leading accuser of Winestein, as she likened him to Walmart or Waldemort or whatever the archvillain in Harry Potter is called. Very original.
    Also part of the coven was Laurie Penny. David Starkey taking this ” jumped up public-school girl” down a peg ion Youtube is a joy to watch.

      What’s not to like about Mary Beard ?

      She was born to upper middle class parents , went to grammar school , then onto university which she has never left . In fact she’s never done a days proper work in her life , nor have her family . All academics who can be subsidised to sneer at the rest of us .
      Then she’s a feminist , hates the USA , loves the EU , wants more immigration and admires Jeremy Corbin and supports Labour .
      The fact that she is a bit vulgar ticks all the right boxes for Al Beeb and so she can trough it with them and think she’s a clever woman .
      Oh and in Mary Beards and AlBeeb la la land it’s ok to wish death to millions of Americans but a slight bit of rough handling on her Twitter account is enough to call in the authorities . Perhaps that’s because she’s One Of Them .

        I think Beard is best remembered for her “sneeriness” on a QT from Boston dealing with uncontrolled mass colonisation.
        Rather than listen to “local people” who have to handle the problems of enrichment on a day to day basis, she read out some ridulous local authority report that suggested everything was hunky-dory and joyous. No doubt someone else on the panel suggested that what “local people” were reporting were merely their “perceptions” and that only writers of official reports, free of vulgar prejudice, were capable of determining what the truth really was.
        A similar line from academic pontificators is that “complex problems require complex solutions”. Often heard when the horror of populism is beiing discussed on the BBC. These people athough they prattle away continually on the media, never actually come up with any solutions whether complex, simple or simplistic.

    We got four days of coverage about Trump saying in private some patently awful countries were ‘sh*tholes’ and how racist this was; over Charlottesville it was about two weeks, all based on how he was not ‘quick enough to condemn the racists’ and DavId Duke liked Trump – all confected fakery turned up to eleven.

    Yesterday we learn black unemployment is at a record low. Obama spoke of ‘anything being possible’ but nothing is possible if you are unemployed – utterly degrading, ruins your self-esteem and the most basic enjoyments of life are denied to you. And Obama did not get enough jobs for black people.

    Not a single word about it from the BBC. That BBC that shrieks when a single black criminal is shot by a Police Officer has nothing to say about this fantastic news for hundreds of thousands of black Americans.

      Obama looked and sounded good but he was useless.

      Trump may be uncouth but he has been in the thick of it his whole life and knows what he is doing: getting people a job and keeping them safe, which is all government should be about.

      Also what you see is what you get with Trump. Clinton, David Miliband or countless other politicians would never call anywhere a sh*thole, but would think it perfectly ok to be paid 100k for a ‘speech’ from companies they helped whilst in govenment etc. Their devious actions speak louder than any mere words Trump might utter. Trump is honest and speaks as one of us, not down his nose to us or like most of our leaders do.

    B he is allowed visits (already cancelled without notice)
    C his case is reviewed and appealed wherever possible (no proper and fit legal representation was provided and the grounds for his arrest be closely examined )

    BBC News Channel at 7:35am did a bit about the World Cup and England’s “low expectations” (that was the BBCs words putting England down). They mentioned a bit about the gun tattoo on black player Raheem Sterling’s leg quoting it is a “personal work of art”.

    Then a sudden jump to a group of black Nigerians in London queuing for 4 hours to buy the Nigerian team football top for £64 each. Who was sent to interview the black Nigerian fans? Yep, a black reporter.

    So typical of the BBC. Didn’t even show the England tops but showed the Nigerian ones instead and plenty of black people. If they hate Britain so much why don’t they rename themselves to just “BC” or “bBc” at least?

    First World Problems

    BBC tv Biddy Baxter-style news alerts us this morning to all the Visa problems lately.

    Turns out they are talking about both duff credit card company service and Roman Abramovich.

    That first story really is the empitome of a first world problem. But we’ll link back to football later. Of course to the breakfast sofa team those computer glitches were a “nightmare” – where for one evening only you couldn’t pay your restuarant bill with a Visa card.

    One had to smile when the eating house proprietor interviewed over the phone told them it wasn’t really so bad and he managed to work around the issue. Private sector, eh! Now if that had been the NHS etc he would surely have had a proper moan, been calling foul and demanding more investment.

    So to fill the greivance gap suddenly opened up between the BBC’s scare headlines and the reality of the guest testimony our regulation presenters (the beta half-male and feisty female) have to tell us about people they know who had a bad time over this glitch. Very poor journo technique – but what we have come to expect.

    And for our BAME viewers… but for those who don’t feel the need to condescend due to your overwhelming burden of white guilt you carry about with you… or if you don’t like association football, then do please look away now…

    It’s the new Nigerian soccer jersey. Nice little BBC advert for Nike. Apparantly this new football shirt is the quite the fashion item. Seems there were very long queues in Oxford Street yesterday for this £64 worth of multiculturalism.

    Gosh our BBC presenters do love this shirt.

    Do you remember Norman Tebbit & his ‘cricket test’. You know his suggestion that when immigrants don’t come to support England at cricket but prefer to identify with their ‘home’ nation this might just possibly be an issue worth worrying about for the future?

    Maybe that’s our First World Problem right there.

    Just after 0800 on Toady, Robinson asks Liam Fox a ‘flying question’ at the end of the interrogation over exports to the US. Robinson refers to Baroness Varsi’s assertion that the Conservative party and its MP’s is “simmering with islamaphobia” and what will they do about it. Fox diligently replies that they would investigate any allegation supported by evidence.
    How nice it would have been if Fox answered, ‘if there is an underlying simmering of islamaphobia amongst the MP’s, it is reflected from the people the MP’s represent’………
    But no, he fluffed it.

      G, Dr Fox might have – even more usefully, in my view – used phobia correctly and observed that Islam is a religion and that some people do not like or even have a fear of organised religion. That can apply to any religion, not just Islam.

      He might then have pointed out that sometimes people may be given cause to fear Islam, one year on from the Manchester and London Bridge/Borough Market terror attacks. Also that political decisions and democracy can trump religion and belief as in last week’s referendum on abortion in Eire.

      But all that would require some personal will and quick thinking, an active mind and time, which is always in short supply if someone wishes to counter certain BBC narratives.

      Footnote: It appears pretty obvious to me that the BBC (and others in the MSM) have been put up to push this ‘Islamophobia in the Conservative Party’-thing, by the Labour Party or some in the Labour Party.

      As the BBC also appear very willing to perpetrate the Jeremy Thorpe saga for their own ends, perhaps they should be reminded to persist just a little more (my irony there – please note) in hounding Vince Cable, current leader of the Liberal Democrats for his recent massive slur against elderly voters who chose to vote Leave during the UK EU Referendum.

    Both bbc and Sky have gone completely over the top in their diversity quotas; the amount of ethnic minority news readers and reporters is surely now overrepresentative of their actual demographic. Please don’t think I am racist, I’m just sick that common purpose lefties are forcing companies to employ people based on ethnicity rather than talent. Some of the ethnic minority news readers don’t seem to be too bright and are obviously there to tick diversity boxes. It’s the same with women quotas, too. Every sodding sports review on the bbc now has to have women on it. We’ll get to the stage this century where men will be nothing but big Jessie soy boy gimps being walked around on a lead by their women.

      This is something everyone knows, and talks about. Sadly even the sports reporters are not chosen for their knowledge , but to be a talking head reading an autocue. I refer in particular to Ore Oduba, who was in relative obscurity quoting the cricket scores on BBC News, then as a nobody he filled the black quota for Strictly and contentiously won it. Now he is pumped out at every opportunity to host this, front that, simply for winning a dance contest.

    I do admire The New Observers reporting on topics. This one is no exception. Journalism at its best. They cite sources and in this particular article, include these reports in the main article. Bravo I say. If more of the MSM and BBC reported this way i.e. factually, they would not be held in increasing ridicule.

    Back on the Chain Gang: TOADY Watch.

    #1 Anti-Brexit propaganda continues apace, especially from Miliband Major. Martha strove manfully to control or even interrupt his lengthy pro-EU, pro-mass-migration, anti-Brexit rants, but could not. The BBC will probably conclude ‘a balance has been struck’.

    #2 The poor old skylark. Ignored by 40% (that then later became 60%) of the audience of ‘literary enthusiasts’ who could not recognise its song. Tsk, tsk! Fancy not listening to Tweet of the Day. Or Vaughan Williams. Call yourselves border literary enthusiasts? Hah!

    Martha’s ‘country girl’ credentials took a bit of a battering when the birder expert, on the programme to wave a shroud for the skylark, pointed out that it was not an upland bird and that on Martha’s day off and out in the Welsh Border hills at the Licence Fee-payers’ expense, she was unlikely to have seen or even heard one.

    The birder expert’s credentials then took a battering as an audience member stated they had plenty in the area in the downlands around Hay. There must have been a collective wince in the audience as he related that Victorians would catch larks and keep them as cage birds for their singing ability.

    A worthy metaphor for the UK’s past membership of the EU. Kept in the EU cage to keep paying & following their rules (singing their song) at no real benefit to ourselves other than some strange form of security. Let the UK out, please, to fly, free as a lark, to rise to greater things!

    #3 Not bias as such, although it is in a way. I note that the Toady Prog today had no less than four éditeurs du jour; two in London and two at the Hay Festival. Not only that, if I caught the garbled names correctly, they were all women.

    Not sure having all those women on board (pun intended) helped the programme do better than its now standard pathetic, desultory and insultory, form.

    policeman is guilty of this or that.
    I was surprised then when they did a feature on the LUSH

    somebody seen the Road to Damascus? BUT as the feature
    unfolded it became aware that from a promissing beginning
    the story was twisted in a way that LUSH were correct in

      Look North with Peter Levy is one of the most biased things on the BBC in our area. Tim Iredale, their political editor, always has the camera pointing at him from below to increase the sneer with which he speaks. We frequently have the Labour mp Diana Johnson (North Hull) giving her opinion freely, unquestioned whereas if we occasionally get a Conservative MP the interrupting is frequent and the sneering often, usually with a final question that is no question at all but a political point made with a rapid cut off so the Conservative MP has no right of reply. (That sort of point scoring frequently happens on Toady too).

    Great to see that it is not just the BBC who mislead and who do not understand economics: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-the-papers-44339670 .

    The FT has a misleading front page headline: “Top earners bear biggest tax rises”. When you dig a little deeper it appears that more Income Tax was paid in the High and Additional Rate bands last year, not that tax rises of the stealth variety had been applied on the quiet to high earners by Philip Hammond or his predecessor.

    What has happened and the FT has mis-attributed, is that incomes have increased for higher earners and that it is that fact which has brought them within the scope of a higher band and led to the payment of more Income Tax. The process is known as ‘Fiscal Drag’ and is quite often mistakenly used by the Conservative Party as the reason to cut income taxes for high earners. Sajid Javid, the current Home Secretary, went in for that little bit of taqiyya on BBC Radio 4 when he was a Treasury Secretary for George Osborne.

    The FT ought to know about this ‘Fiscal Drag’ thing.

    I wonder if the BBC will repeat it without checking it first?

    The recent attempt by Guardian writer Afua Hirsch to trash the reputations of both Nelson and Churchill is a valuable insight into a liberal agenda that seeks to destroy the British nation and its unique culture. Britain is in a weakened state, unsure of its place in the world and the vultures are starting to circle.

    Hirsch views everything through the prism of race. Vice-Admiral Viscount Horatio Nelson spent his adult life protecting Great Britain from its enemies. His great victory at Trafalgar where he lost his own life destroyed any hope the despot Bonaparte had of invading Britain. Sir Winston Churchill roused the nation to defend itself when little stood in the way of the dominant German army and Adolf Hitler.

    Privately educated Hirsch seems to care nothing about these achievements – it is not obvious that she is even aware of them. Nelson is said to have protected the slave trade by his navel actions and Churchill made some disobliging comments about some of the cultural practices found in India at the time. Unfortunate yes, but so are the actions of almost every historically important figure back to antiquity if they are to be judged on the standards of the present day.

    Nelson and Churchill were creations of their time. What is Hirsch’s excuse for describing the corrupt, depraved Winnie Mandela as a hero? If she was white there would be no debate about it, she added. One wonders what Hirsch’s view would be if Horatio and Winston had had a penchant for burning black opponents alive by dousing them with petrol? Everything in Hirsch’s liberal world is connected to race – your race excuses or convicts everything. So a fighter against apartheid is seemingly forgiven the odd misdemeanor but a man such as Nelson who devoted his life to navel service in the cause of his country is lambasted for matters well beyond his control.

    The state broadcaster recently allowed Tenayi Achiume to blow into town and pollute the airways by castigating the British as racists. Nobody in the liberal media thought to ask questions about her views on unlimited immigration. According to Achiume, we operate from a “baseline of entitled exclusion”. Put it another way – the nation state does not have the authority to regulate who lives within its own borders.

    People like Hirsch and Achiume hate the lessons of history where the strong defend themselves and survive – was it ever so throughout history in nation, jungle or bush. Defending your culture is often hard, the enemies are always circling – and so liberalism is the smug new easy option. They have become rich enough to be stupid – the prerogative of louche and entitled aristocrats throughout history. Mark Steyn wrote recently about arrested adolescents passing off their self absorption as high-mindedness. Life is a silly John Lennon song and when 22 young people are blown to bits they chant “Don’t look back in anger”. It is so much easier than taking the hard choices required to defend the British culture that once elevated people like Nelson and Churchill to national heroes.

        Country – You have hit the point on the head . However Oxygen thieves like this particular young lady do have a point – if you are a cultural marxist and want disassemble the current culture and society and want to try and replace it with something concocted on the back of a fag packet in a sixth form common room.
        What individuals like this also do (when you have a disloyal and traitorous state broadcaster) is to push any debate further leftwards so the new centre ground lurches further to the left.
        In addition they help to change and pervert societies perceptions. So in future when we think of Nelson we think of slave owners rather than a true hero. Similair manipulation of perceptions seem to happen when say there is a Jihadi terrorist attack , as soon as they think they can get away with it the BBC try and switch the debate away from the attack to concern about muslims suffering “looks in the street” rather than the real victims.
        I know I am pushing a point but we would never have to suffer this sort of insufferable crap if we did not have a MSM and state dominated media that is complicit in the distortion of accepted facts and beliefs (that historically have helped to add to the unity of society)

        What we are in fact getting from the left wing media is a complete package which aims to change our society into theirs. Remember we had years of the MSM talking about “Islamophobia ” and then if by magic we have “hate” laws and now with the aid of the MSM and the MCB they are doing it again.
        The next subject they will be trying to destroy are mens relationships with women. Of course certain members of favoured groups wont have to worry about this because they take their lead from the perfect book written by the most perfect man rather than the BBC.

        This wretched individual really is an indication of a society that has lost its self respect and is losing its way and is now being told what to do by those who do not have its best interests at heart.

      Chris M – good post.
      The only reason that Hirsch and her supporting group of race grievance-mongers get away with all this is that we have so few ‘politicians’ prepared to stand up and point out that she’s talking rubbish. The BBC and Guardianistas will fully back her so she’s onto a good thing, despite having only a tiny army of fanatics who actually believe the silly bint.

      The stuff she writes (along with Alibhai-Brown etc) is really just clickbait to annoy sensible people. And when people attack her personally for being an ungrateful bitch she can drop the booby-trap word ‘Racist!’.

      Until some proper tory politicians (who you could count on the fingers of one hand) get a bit more militant and vocal, the leftward drift of political discourse can’t be stopped. Until their fairy tale world falls apart.

      But I’m not expecting tory defections to UKIP, or other fringe right-wing-ish parties any time soon. So in the UK we will continue to be seen as “crazy people worried about nonsense” as this blog relates :

But now, like Alibaba Brown, she is a ‘fixture’ on the media circuit, and whereas I used to watch her to see what spurious twaddle she’d come out with, I just get annoyed and switch her off.

    I’m really depressed today 🙁

    I don’t care if Corbyn is our next leader anymore…I don’t care if Brexit is stopped. Let’s see where the cards fall…

    Today’s disgraceful two page spread in the Daily Mail on TR is the final straw for me. I’ve bought the DM for decades but, I won’t be buying it anymore…

    Is there any commonsense Daily I can buy now? All recommendations gratefully received 🙂

      Come on, don’t be silly! You need to understand that the DM is scrupulously respecting the principle of “innocent until proven guilty”, and the right of our criminal justice system to insist on restraint as the legal process takes its course.

        I think the Mail are doing a little more than that, by bringing together every right wing person they can paint as black as possible. And all the stuff about mortgage fraud, football hooliganism, all disputable and irrelevant to the issue of protecting the right to a fair trial.

          Various people have made serious attempts to analyse the TR affair, including Melanie Phillips. However, by concentrating solely on the legal arguments I think they are failing to understand why so many people are uneasy about what has happened:

          – Justice has not been seen to be done by a significant number of people. This suggests to me that the affair has been mismanaged.
          – It must be seen within the context of previous attempts to silence TR. A pattern is emerging.
          – I’d like to know if similar situations have arisen in the past and, if so, whether the criminal justice system has responded in the same extremely diligent way. Unfortunately, I don’t have the resources to conduct an investigation myself and I can’t see any organisation bothering, or perhaps daring, to do it.

      I despise the (so called) right wing press more that I do the Beeb or The Guardian. At least there’s no pretence that they’re on our side, but the Mail is just full of hypocritical crap. It hasn’t the balls to tell the truth, it runs with the hares and hunts with the hounds and has headlines suggesting that dithering Theresa is some sort of latter day Boudicca. It exists solely to muster support for the dreadful Conservative Party. It wouldn’t matter who was at the helm, Chamberlain or Churchill, it’s all the same to these charlatans.
      The gutter press is in the gutter for a reason.
      That’s where it deserves to be.

        To have such a strong opinion of the DM I must assume that you read it every day? If you don’t…and be honest here…how did you form such opinions? I can’t see how you arrived at some of your conclusions whilst agreeing with some others.

        I believe that I’m not greatly influenced by the News propaganda, whether it be on TV or in a Paper…I just try to pick out the truth and logic from both as best I can…and the Internet, of course.

        So, in your opinion, is there any Daily Paper I might buy that is as close as possible to being unbiased and full of common sense? Does one exist? 🙁 🙂

    Perhaps, the quicker we get back to the 15th century or earlier, would be welcomed. The continuing salami slicing of all that we hold dear continues apace. There are so many Fifth Columnists in place already that it would take decades to get rid of these people that have spent equal decades plotting for the transition of the UK into an islamic caliphate. Bit by bit, the knot tightens and resistance? None. Did you know that after various and highly serious, ‘bacon sandwich’ type incidents around mosques, the Government put £2 million into the protection of ‘faith institutions’. Note the slippery term. Would that be churches, chapels and the like or, mosques and the mushrooming islamic schools? Bet I know. Taxpayers money. Where is our saviour? Nowhere to be seen. Only the 87.2% of the population (white 87.2%, black/African/Caribbean/black British 3%, Asian/Asian British: Indian 2.3%, Asian/Asian British: Pakistani 1.9%, mixed 2%, other 3.7% (2011 est.)) can do anything about it but, needless to say, in the main, they’re glued to the ‘telly’.

      Because the BBC love Islam. I wouldn’t be surprised if many bbc employees are converts or Muslims; the upper English classes and your average middle class metro-trendy left wing prats think it’s exotic and cool to dabble with foreign religions and cultures – it’s always been like this especially with the upper classes. But the working classes always pay the price for the elitists’ utter stupidity and immaturity. Also, Muslims are being used by cultural Marxists as ‘useful idiots’ to dilute the indigenous anglo-Christian population… it’s classic neoliberalist consumer theory; remove nationalism and open the borders – and ideally introduce a people who can be easily led. Blind and thick followers of a religion are easy to manipulate both politically and economically, thus the neoliberal globalists can use these brainwashed morons as potential consumers once the host nation’s secular society has cooled their religious fervour.

        “…. Muslims are being used by cultural Marxists as ‘useful idiots’….”. I’m afraid I don’t agree. Until we see prayers taking place five times a day to Marxism, I think islam has the upper hand. In fact, I’d go so far as to suggest reversing your assertion: I think that islam sees the cultural marxists as the ‘useful idiots’. Islam has a far greater plan than the ‘children of the Revolution’ will ever have. I think they’re simply, ‘cadging a lift’ until they can cast off on their own. Not too long now.

    Far from all the media making out that Tommy is an impetuous racist fool who deserved to go to prison, maybe at some point in the future they might have the grace to recognise how brave he was putting himself on the firing line.

    He ran the risk of prison and breaking a ridiculous law to bring continued attention to a series of disgusting crimes that the MSM are doing their very best to ignore and give scant attention to.

    Maybe when the crimes become so regular and can no longer be ignored or suppressed by the state and MSM, some people will look on Tommy as having done a noble thing to generate this groundswell of anger at a constantly ignored and rarely confronted problem.

    I wonder if people at the time told Rosa Parkes that she was an idiot for defying the existing law or whether they would have told Emmeline Pankhurst that she got what she deserved when being arrested and jailed for her righteous fight – unlikely.

    But history has judged them differently, honoured them for their actions in railing against the state and praised them for the courage of their convictions. Maybe one day we’ll be able to acknowledge Tommy for his courage and the sacrifices that he (and his family made) for being a driving force in raising awareness for these abhorrent acts perpetrated against this nation’s young girls and women.

    I’m sure we’ll remember Tommy far longer than the out of touch politicians and moronic judges who seem more concerned with punishing the messenger rather than the criminals.

    @countryblues 12:26 pm

    I share your disbelief in the editorial judgement of the Daily Mail in publishing this piece, for the paper usually speaks for the silent majority of the decent, good people of this country in the onslaught of the Progressive Marxists.

    My only suggestion is that it ticks some sort of box in the Mail’s view that they offer “balance”, just as the BBC put up a token Tory to throw tomatoes at.

    Richard Pendelbury, the article author, is a typical guilt-ridden, bleeding-heart “Progressive” whose smugness and moral grandstanding arrogance comes from the fact that he is a self-confessed SJW:

    …my personal mission is to serve the most needy in society, especially in my own city. It’s about justice – social justice.

    He tried being an Army officer, but they turned him down for “lack of initiative”. He became an accountant, worked for a building society, then a property developer

    The Army knows a limp-wristed wet when they see one for sure.

    The fluff piece here says all you need to know about him:

    …and now yet another disgraceful liberal-Left “Journalist”. A turd by any other name.

      The silence from the MSM concerning the arrest and global interest/protests has been deafening. Whether they like him or loathe him, surely the TR affair has been very newsworthy? I can only assume that the MSM believes that ANY sort of coverage would be bad for the plebs.

      Much is being made of the legal technicalities and the trial of rapist gangs etc. whilst totally ignoring the bigger picture…and I believe it’s the bigger picture that should be concentrated on.

      The MSM deliberately ignores the TR affair assuming it will just fade away. I wonder…

    I haven’t been here for sometime, cancelled my licence with the BBC and migrated over to Netflix fully back around the New Year, and since then have generally been feeling rather more upbeat about life in general. Wish I’d done it years ago to be honest.

    Anyway, from time to time I visit the BBC ‘News’ website still, and logging on today I can’t believe how utterly (pathetically, childishly) PC it’s become.

    among the many pieces of utter drivel masquerading as ‘news’, this piece particularly got my goat:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-42398546

    if you haven’t bothered to read it, it’s basically an excuse for an angry rant about ‘racism’, by an ‘academic’ described as: “Dr Kehinde Andrews, Associate Professor in Sociology at Birmingham City University, who is also the co-chair of the Black Studies Association.”

    Only the thing is, I believe he’s wrong, wrong about the origins and reasons for ‘black face’ in all its many different forms, and about what it meant to many people in the past. Of course there is no counter-argument… just ‘black face’ is racist and wrong… fact, fullstop, any arguing otherwise is racist and likely to get you locked up by the thought police, so shut up if you know what’s good for you… or else…

    But, the thing is, I’m quite convinced ‘blacking up’ has been around in Europe for much, much longer than black sub-Saharan Africans have. In which case, what we’re seeing in Medieval Mummers Plays and Morris Dancing can trace it’s origins back before most Europeans would have ever seen a ‘Black’ person. I’m not talking here about ‘black and white minstrels’ which I can agree does seem pretty ‘racist’ these days, but about much older, unconnected traditions, where people were ‘blacked up’ to represent spirits, and yes, doubtless evil ones too.

    Hmm… that’s not possible though is it, because ‘black people’ were here before the white ones, right? Or so goes the more and more weirdly ahistorical and bizarre BBC narrative.

    How does white, Europeans traditionally blackening their faces to play the part of ‘evil spirits and demons’, differ from: Australian Aborigines, South American Native Peoples, Black Africans, Papua New Guineans, Chinese etc… whitening their faces to play out the part of ‘ghosts’ and ‘witches’ and ‘evil spirits’ in their own folk dances and plays?!!

    There isn’t one iota of difference is there.

    The complete lack of awareness of the hypocrisy is what really makes me think we live in a world gone mad.

      Morris Dancers and others can trace their blacking up to historical sources unrelated to to people with black skin. Consider the notorious Black Act, which had sod all to do with de racist whitey. It was aimed at repressing de landless white man who dem property owners had hung. Dem poachers blacked dere faces at night so de masters could not see dem catching brer rabbit. Strange fruit was Dan de poacher.

      Black Act
      Status: Amended
      The Black Act (9 Geo. 1 c. 22) was an Act of the Parliament of Great Britain passed in 1723 in response to a series of raids by two groups of poachers, known as the Blacks. Arising in the aftermath of the South Sea Bubble’s collapse and the ensuing economic downturn, the Blacks gained their name from their habit of blacking their faces when undertaking poaching raids. They quickly demonstrated both “a calculated programme of action, and a conscious social resentment”,[1] and their activities led to the introduction of the Black Act to Parliament on 26 April 1723; it came into force on 27 May. The Act introduced the death penalty for over 50 criminal offences, including being found in a forest while disguised, and “no other single statute passed during the eighteenth century equalled [the Black Act] in severity, and none appointed the punishment of death in so many cases”.[2] Following a criminal law reform campaign in the early 19th century, it was largely repealed on 8 July 1823, when a reform bill introduced by Robert Peel came into force.

      Socil Justice Warriors who go on about blacking up might check the history of the people they despise.
