The current government celebrates the 70th anniversary of the inter- National Health Service  by throwing more borrowed money at it .

    Cant wait to see how our BBC are going to celebrate the new Windrush Day 22nd of June apparently. What with various virtue signalling days and the plethora of meaningless one minuets silences i’m having trouble fitting my days work in.

        Maybe a free concert by Steve Wonder would incline us to feeling some kind of -well empathy-with this serial thread of black mitherlings. Say what you like-but he is worth all the nonsense, even if he`s not done much since Masterblaster.
        Why would he? He need never work again after that 65-80 era.
        Mind you-maybe Stevie never got to know that “peace has NOT come to Zimbabwe”.
        Couldn`t see the pictures, but someone should have told him to revise that lyric way back.
        But he`s our Mozart alright, no question.

        Moment of silence to mark attack near London mosque

        http://www.startribune.com/moment-of-silence-to-mark-attack-near-london-mosque/485898071/

        No remembrance for the tens of thousands of young Infidel girls brutally gang raped and trafficked as sex slaves for Muslim men.
        That would remind people why that solitary attack on a mosque took placed. And that would bring up the complicity of the authorities in what can only be called a war crime against one’s own.

        And that is the real crime of Tony Robinson for which he is languishing in prison – the crime of revealing a war crime by the authorities.

      Mr Hand-Basket has accidentally called it the ‘Whingerush’, which has to be my all-time favourite Freudian slip. Perhaps we should all rename it?

      By the way, there has been an interesting political development here in Australia. The BBC’s evil twin (the ABC) is currently funded out of taxation. There has been a vote to privatise it by the grassroots members of our Liberal party (the ruling party, in coalition with the National Party). The Parliamentary party daren’t act on it, for fear of a Labour backlash. Still, it’s a start!

For instance on Thursday there is “Up the Women” followed by “Egypt’s most powerful women” followed by “The woman who lit up the World” followed by “Moments from Women’s lives” followed by “The Woman who thinks like a Cow” followed by “”A woman Astrophysicist explains her discoveries” followed by “The first Woman to become a computer expert” followed by “Egypt’s most powerful women” followed by “Rebel Women of Art, fighting back against Men by producing a dirty bed as Art?”

        Most middle class women in days gone gone by, and all over the world, had an abundance of time and resources to become mathematicians or mathematical physicists, or even engineers. All it requires is a pencil and paper. Many a time, not even that. Thats it. And of course ability and tenacity.

        The fact that these fields, as well as engineering, the bedrock of science and technology, are dominated by men, almost 100%, is because men have innate curiosity and tenacity to pursue an esoteric subject. I find even now, female students will give up easily with a difficult problem, within a week or two, and ask for the “answer” or for help.

        Once a subject discipline is established, some women will join in occasionally , as they do now.

        The reality is that men and women have differing perspectives on life, which governs the choices they make. Women for instance dominate in medicine, GPs etc. I don’t see men clamouring for equal treatment in medicine.

        It seems that men have spoilt women. Its getting worse. It wont surprise me one bit if there are quite a few men in jail, convicted on made up accusations, with malice, of rape and assault. Society has got to a stage that women are assumed to always tell the truth, and men the converse.

      Merkel is caught in a trap of her own making. This socialist masquerading as a Christian democrat, made a policy decision to accept the whole world into Germany if it wanted to – a socialist policy goal to destroy capitalism.

      Events took a deadly turn though – bombings, car and HGV Jihad, rapes and murder – all associated with the RoP (How many minutes of Silence each day I wonder??).

      Merkel has to give away, as a new election will only increase the power and purchase of the AfD. AfD will team up with Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland etc.

      Bavaria is also keen to get the support of Pres Trump, as Bavaria is where the Big Car companies are. I dont think German car bosses liked being mentioned by Pres Trump.

      The Islamic invasion brought about by the idiotic decision of Merkel has already led to the collapse of Schengen. The EU is thus half way down the road to full collapse. The financial burden on the EU brought about by the same Invasion will lead to the collapse of Euro. Fin. End.

    BBC World Service programme called ‘Crossing Cultures’ or something has an art installation about the pain caused by US border forces.

    The pain is caused by breaking the immigration law in the first place. Laws are the bedrock of civilisation. You cannot just walk into Broadcasting House unauthorised or you would be removed; imagine their reaction to a moped gang smashing through a studio as they discussed open borders. Equally, they do not refer to people who do not pay the licence fee as ‘dreamers.’ They get sinister Capita employees to sneak round houses and enforce it, which happened to my friend who is brain damaged from a car crash; I somehow doubt they would be interested in an art installation about that. They are all for laws when it benefits them.

    It’s funny how they all live in monocultural areas, never Luton or Slough. If diversity were really so fantastic they would live amongst it but they never do, which is why house prices in the most ‘vibrant’ areas are the lowest in the country. You should do as you would be done by, but with virtue signalling it is do as I say but I will do otherwise. Thus it is far worse than any ‘hate speech’ for it has devestating effects beyond mere hurt feelings, as the children of Rotherham would attest.

    I just read ‘The Vision of the Anointed’ by Thomas Sowell which is brilliant; it gets to the heart of how the liberal elite ruin everything by thinking they have special and superior wisdom. When their utopian plans end in disaster they ignore the evidence. Here they have banned us from even mentioning the problems, which lucky for them in the US can never happen as they have the First Amendment.

      BB,
      “….it gets to the heart of how the liberal elite ruin everything by thinking they have special and superior wisdom.” Exactly my thoughts earlier when, just before 0900 on Toady, I listened to Clegg being interviewed. Notable point? “We will never stop mass migration into the EU”. I don’t seem able to see what he does for a living now. However, his net worth supports him and speeches on Brexit. The former? $4million; the latter? £120K and continually risiing. “Didn’t he do well?”

    had given some very bad driving conditions information, saying
    that a bit of snow in London caused panic( My wife had been
    caught in a blizzard) that all the Munchkin women was capable
    of, was to tell us to follow the yellow brick road! She read this
    E Mail out , and was not amused.

    Dimbleby. Give me a list of all the women presenters who
    we have available.”

    BBC bastards report violence by a bunch of African immigrants at a festival for Africans as

    ‘Police condemn ‘appalling’ violence at cycle festival’

    A cycle festival? Violent? Are you sure?

    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-manchester-44511779

    Read elsewhere:

    “it’s understood that the event was targeted by opponents of the government in the east African country who believed those attending to be supporters of the regime there.”

    So this is African communal violence imported to the UK and yet the BBC scumbags manage to report it as ‘violence at cycle festival’

    Strangely we have managed to have cycle events for 200 years in the UK without any rioting Africans.

    It would seem that the operative word here is ‘Eritrean’ and not ‘cycle’.

      The BBC have a long history of distorting reality to support mass immigration of violent thugs from thirdworld shitholes.

      http://www.dw.com/en/eritrean-migrants-shot-in-massive-calais-brawl/a-42417758

      “Eritrean migrants shot in massive Calais brawl
      At least five people have been shot after a fight involving more than 100 Eritreans and Afghans erupted in Calais. The French interior minister blamed traffickers for “fueling daily violence and brawls.””

      BBC version:

      https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-42912670

      “Calais migrants: Five shot in mass brawl”

      Perhaps if the BBC didn’t lie and misrepresent reality the police would be better equipped to realise that an ‘Eritrean cycle festival’ is a likely source of violence between those in support and against its shitty third world government, rather than a happy party of people riding bicycles and eating organic pancakes in harmony.

        “Opponents of Afwerki, who took office when Eritea secured independence from Ethiopia in 1993 with no elections held since then, believe the regime is using the success of the country’s cyclists as a means of deflecting attention from issues such as human rights abuses.”

    US child migrants: First ladies speak out on Trump separation policy

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-44515123

    The BBChas really got its teeth into this one. Last night they reported a downright lie, as I mentioned on the old Open Thread.

    Note how the tweet and article to which it refers differ. When I posted last night, they were identical, stating that Melania called for an end to “Trump’s separation policy”. They’ve had to change it as it isn’t his policy.

    The article now contains this peculiar paragraph:

    She repeated her husband’s call for “both sides” to work on immigration reform as a solution. However, fact-checkers point out that the policy was introduced by Mr Trump’s attorney general and does not require congressional action to be stopped.

    What policy, exactly, and just who are these mysterious fact-checkers. It doesn’t say. It’s trying to conflate the policy of actually enforcing existing law, which would indeed seem to be a change with the policy of not sending children to jail when their parents go there. Those who have a problem with enforcing a law should be campaigning to repeal it, but they can’t admit that’s their goal.

It might also help vanquish this phantom ‘gender pay gap’ once they understand how ‘far right’ things like markets, averages and multi-variant analyses operate. We might hope that with all their zealotry they might at least have some idea of what they are going on about.

        I don’t know if anybody here has Amazon Prime, but amazingly I found a non-lefty documentary to watch – The Red Pill (you’d likely have to search for it). It’s basically an ex-feminist interviewing members of the men’s rights movement and giving them a fair hearing.

        It certainly shows up the radical left for being the snarling, anti-free speech brainwashed idiots that they are. There’s a bit in it about all the fuss made over the ‘Bring back our Girls’ abducted by Boko Haram in Nigeria. While hundreds of boys were being mercilessly slaughtered by the same group, there were no demonstrations, no outcry from the western media.

        There’s a scene near the end which shows a baby being circumcised so I suggest looking away at that point (I’m squeamish watching operations!).

        The young woman who made the film doesn’t offer a huge amount in analysis, but rather seems a bit dumbstruck with all the ‘badthink’ she’s listening to. And that I suppose is what a Red Pill worldview will do to those whose lives have been contained in a leftist bubble.

        I very much doubt that the BBC would ever show the film, but I did find this article :

          Discovered that a couple of years ago, it’s a real find.

          The director has since released some extensions of the scenes as well as talked with the likes of Stefan Molyneaux. Her treatment since the film came out from feminists and the MSM has been pretty shocking and could almost be a film in itself.

          Find her on YouTube for some of the more amazing insights that she has.

      Lol. The BBC use “Asian” to deflect far away from using “Muslim” when talking about criminals and terrorists.

      But they have got their knickers in a twist with this one though. In this case they want the reader to have some sympathy for Muslims without putting Muslims in a negative ‘snowflake’ category. So they try and narrow down that massive continent with a 4.5 billion population to “South Asian”.

      The BBC really are a load of idiots. Articles like that probably have to go through so many internal BBC reviews and board meetings before the final text is agreed on resulting in utter crap.

        This planet evolved with nations ‘housing’ different cultures and peoples for a reason. For nearly 2000 years the status quo was fine and populations were happy to live within their own environs – but with a few religious wars in between. In the last 100 years the movement of peoples has never been so great, all with catastrophic results, and now we are seeing tens of thousands of Africans moving north to the colder climates of Europe and out of their comfort zone, with the result that they are now aimlessly wandering the streets in various countries, no better off than before. Asians are heading West in great numbers and creating ghettos that are becoming no-go areas, with authorities doing very little.
        The media and tinkling piano music, along with bleeding pleas from refugee charities, attempt to tug at the heartstrings with endless images of dying children.
        We do not hear why those rescue boats in the Med do not take the migrants to safe havens in Tunisia – back to Africa from whence they came.

    * The Tories haven’t just popularised Islamophobia – they’ve gentrified it.

    * Gove’s ‘identitarian’ speech shows how toxic he has become.

    * We know about Corbyn’s values – but on Brexit he must do detail too.

    * Our ‘hostile environment’ towards migrants only exists with public consent.

    * Can you be a socialist and rich? You asked Google – here’s the answer.

    * It’s not just Windrush. Theresa May has created hostility to all immigrants.

    * From Malala to Parkland, why are the victims demonised?.

    “why are the victims demonised?” – this is terrible journalism, it might as well say “We cannot ask awkward questions that might reveal some horrible truth.”

    So still not much from the BBC on Labour’s abysmal ‘Labour Live’ event over the weekend. I guess that it really was a flop?

    Of course last year Corbyn made big news after being invited to headline the stage at Glastonbury talking nonsense to a large crowd who where already there anyway and when they tried to recapture that moment at a Labour hosted even the whole thing backfires. Shame that Glastonbury is having it’s fallow year this year!

    Last year the BBC where all over Corbyn. He was everywhere and was ‘going places’ despite losing an ‘easy to win’ election which he cheated after lying about cancelling student debt which of course has been debunked.

    This year the BBC are much more quiet. Labour Live has been branded a flop by a number of sources and even he Guardian is divided over it. The Garbage is pushing out two stories. Once saying that Labour Live was well attended (due to free tickets I guess) and the other side are saying that ‘The Tories have nothing to fear’ which makes the whole thing look even more hilarious.

    The BBC’s silence on the shoddy event however is our real claim that Labour Live did not match expectations and has certainly not recaptured that wacky moment at Glastonbury where a 70 something who lost the election was portrayed as every young person’s hero!

    Instead I wonder what nonsense the BBC have in store for us this week?

      Apparently some Labour MPs are demanding an internal post-mortem as the party has been exposed to great financial and political risk. Too much trust in Corbyn as a God rather than party politics.

    He was useless. Blatant bias against anyone who wasn’t on the left and regularly blocked members of the audience who asked anything that didn’t fit his/BBC left-wing agenda.

    I remember during the MP’s expenses scandal he was asked how much he was paid by the BBC and he claimed that he wasn’t employed by them.
    This was because he’d set up a personal service company to reduce his tax liability but all the money going into the company came from the BBC.

        OG,

        I don’t think it matters who presents it the programme itself is a busted flush.

        The bBbc are celebrity obsessed and so will look to place someone who they alone see as being high profile in to this safe seat. They do this with everything now from news to drama, history, travel, sport, social or current affairs.

        They precede dramas with the name of the writer as if this means anything to the target audience in an attempt to feign gravitas and intellect, like Steven Poliakoff and David Hare. The same dramas are often just vehicles for the same actors, nearly always female, who play the same parts again and again; Sarah Lancashire as Sarah Lancashire, Suranne Jones as Suranne Jones, and now , droopy Nicola Walker and her hangdog face regularly plays herself.

        The same faces, we all know who they are, pop up again and again, narrating, presenting, travelling, their popularity measured not in viewing figures or customer feedback but simply by the number of times the bBbc employ them. This is determined not by talent or expertise as it should be and is becoming increasingly obvious, but by contacts, political and social outlook, gender, race and sexuality, and their unquestioned conformity to the bBbc mindset.

        So whoever takes over from Dimbleby will be someone who ticks as many boxes as possible, an insider who will probably start off with some vaguely contentious comments before reverting to type and the programme will, like most other bBbc programmes, continue to lose credibility and viewers.

    No hustings crap like Anne Marie Waters had to put up with in Lewisham ( not a dicky bird from the media either about what Labours Brownshirts were doing to us there last week). Tommy would walk it, maybe he could stand in ALL coming by elections so he`s MP for loads of them-why ever not, there`s no law or rules any more so stuff `em!

    AND-at least he might get a camera and video link to us all out here, so we can check for health, bruising or what have you. That letter may be a week out of date, does anybody trust this state not to get him killed?

    Imagine that-even the PKK leader in a Turkish prison cell is able to address his electorate, whereas Tommy is not.
    Stand for the Commons Tommy, preferably in places where we`ll have found where Antifa are-so we can counsel them beforehand.

    Tommy Robinson. MP Luton, Bradford, Rotherham East, Manchester and Lewisham Central. Why ever not?
    Don`t beleive that Erdogan is more of a democrat that May-but he is today isn`t he?

At English penalties and conversions the whole arena was full of baying and howling French. Near the end even though they were ahead any English touch was booed and howled at, I was glad to leave as I’ve never been that frightened at a rugby match before. The French around us were still apologising as we left , a horrible end to the day. We said on the way out that the reason the French were given so many penalties was the ref wanted to get off the pitch alive, that was a joke……?????? Maybe or maybe not.

      The CDU is hopeless, having felt for so many years that Merkel is their ideal candidate. Unless Germans wake up, their politicians will continue to sell them out. Certainly their MSM will stay toxic. ARD and ZDF, are the equivalent of BBC and Channel 4: need I say more? (If anything, even MORE slavishly devoted to PC)
      Like in Britain, the political and media establishment will work together to thwart their subjects. Note, I say ‘subjects’ not citizens. When parliaments act like royalty and think they know better than voters, what else can you call them?
      Trump seemed to be the only exception; now I see his wife appears to be undermining him.

    Just watching the Sweden S Korea game and looking at the crowd shots, it would appear that none of the new Swedes have bothered to make the trip to Russia.
    Highlight of the match seems to H Larsen looking thoroughly pissed off with the inane questions from the daft anchor bint in the studio.

      Toobi,

      I see Eni Aluko isn’t sitting beside Evra today, as according to the papers he patronised/ emotionally traumatised her yesterday by applauding her comments. The sisters are reacting as expected.

      She’s probably at home preparing her case, 80 grand doesn’t go as far as it used to.

        I saw that, Rich, Larsen disagreed with her analysis as to who was the better side and Evra stepped in as “peacemaker”.

    On the subject of David Dimbleby’s retirement from Question Time, James Delingpole has written a very amusing and accurate piece for Breitbart:

    http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/06/18/delingpole-i-dont-care-who-next-presenter-bbc-question-time-is/

    He might make a good replacement, as he suggests, tongue in cheek, at the end.

    How about having someone who is a genuine impartial ‘Chair’ and acts as a ‘Chair’ is supposed to, that is to gently guide the discussion, make sure no one dominates or speaks for too long, and, most important, avoid contributing their own views.

        The reptilian Dimblebore tries to denigrate JRM with a quite irrelevant reference to Eton, hoping for a cheap knee-jerk laugh from the audience. When JRM brilliantly ripostes that he was there with Dimmie’s son, the slimy creep pretends to laugh it off.
        Touché, you smug, smarmy, privileged, lefty, entitled piece of s**t.
        We’ve all seen it before, but it’s ever fresh and immensely satisfying.

      Saw a terrifying prospect in the Telegraph….the new Dimblebore has to be female and the ones highlighted….the Squawker, Mishal Husain and Kirsty Young….all lefty….Young might be a decent fit though….could be even worse with Derbyshire named as a possible runner as well as Barnett. Young aside I think Question Time would be unwatchable with any of the rest of that uninspiring and unoriginal bunch who are all turned out from the exact same mould with the exact same mindset. The men are no bettter…Campbell, Vine and Wright….all marinaded in their rarefied little middleclass meropolitan holier than thou bubble…Wright, relaced by the ever-so want-to-please-everyone Vine, is a smarmier and even smugger version of James O’Brien if that is possible.

      You know who would be just great, a real beauty? Trump. Wouldn’t he really just kill ’em. And he’s got tv experience.

        Disgusted with the alleged right wing bias of Dimbelby’s Question Time the Saudi/Soros financed Class War loonies have produced their own very left wing real working class version of QT. If you do not have the stamina to sit through the entire programme take my word for it – no one in the show disagrees with anyone else.

        Despite the mockney accents of some of the audience/panel, I can assure you that the majority have degrees and a middleclass background and despite the swearing they all agree with Dimbleby about Brexit and other matters.

    Gotta love this as the BBC et al attack Trump for not wanting to be in the Paris climate change club….for all their sanctimonious screechings they’re the ones who are failing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions whilst badboy Trump is….what a gas!…

    Global emissions surged to record high in 2017 — but in the US, they dropped
    ‘ Two years after 200 or so nations forged a new UN deal to protect the climate, output of the gases blamed for global warming surged to a record.

    Carbon dioxide emissions from energy use climbed 1.6% in 2017, with both emerging and developed economies contributing to the increase, according to BP data published on Wednesday. In the US, which intends to withdraw from the UN’s Paris accord, greenhouse-gas output fell for a third year.

      And Germany’s Co2 emissions are rising and the United States are decreasing year after year. This is because the US has moved to fracking and Germany is building coal powered power stations.

      Odd, the BBC isnt praising Trump for keeping emissions falling and castigating the EU’s leading country for pushing up emission.

    “Wake up, Ravi. We have to go.”
    Young Ravi wakes to hear the boom and splinter of falling bombs as the Syrian civil war rages around him.
    His father takes Ravi from his bed and the family’s journey — and this afternoon’s moral lesson from Auntie — begins.
    Ravi endures teasing from racist rotters in Jordan and a journey to Germany before finding safety in London.
    Rest assured that this is not a tale that will tax your children’s moral compass.
    It is didacticism thinly disguised as drama. Children, naturally, will adore it.
    (Definition of didactic – intended to teach, particularly in having moral instruction as an ulterior motive.)
