        While you are about it, please would you be so kind as to also displace the other DG in that office at the top of Broadcasting House? If he’s left there much longer, the BBC may not survive.

    A new PM is upon us and while the left (which of course includes the BBC) have been trying their hardest to push May out, now that she is leaving they are all going quiet. Maybe with the likes of Bojo or The Mogg potentially gaining power they know that the end of the left is getting closer and with it I hope that includes TV tax

    The following was taken from another Forum (where we all have a moan), and was made by a contributor on the subject of the candidacy for the Mayor of London – bit of an eye opener re Sad Khant …………………….

    “I interviewed all the candidates in the last race and noticed that pretty much each candidate seemed to be going for a segment of society and targeting the vote from that demographic. Sadiq Khan spoke about supporting Muslims in London. I asked him why this should matter, given that most people in London are not Muslim, and what he was going to do about other issues. It didn’t go down terribly well, but I will always ask the questions I feel are worth asking and if something jumps out at me like that I will ask about it. “

    On no, Russian meddling! What do the left think spies actually do? Is the CIA and MI6 just a bunch of harmless folks building bridges and air dropping packages of sweets to people? Russia, the US and China have been ‘meddling’ in other countries affairs for years – Iraq, Libya, Vietnam, Afghanistan etc replete with ‘intelligence’ findings that were spectacularly untrue. Some people are just so childishly naïve ‘oh do stop spying on us, it’s really unfair’.

    In 2015 the Chinese hacked into the Office of Personnel Management and stole personal information of more 20 MILLION Americans. The director of National Intelligence said “you have to kind of salute the Chinese for what they did” and Obama met President Xi 9 times over the course of 4 years and even met him again in 2017 when he wasn’t even the President. At any time did he use the harsh language that the media say Trump should have used on Putin. Of course not. Does China have an independent judiciary or freedom of speech or transparent democracy. No but what it does have is the largest armed forces in the world in personnel, the second largest military budget in the world and the second largest economy in the world. It’s a real and credible threat – so why isn’t it vilified in the same way as Russia? Why the double standards?

    But best of all is the claim that Russia is the biggest threat to Western democracy. What utter moronic nonsense. The biggest threat to any form of democracy is having a democratic vote and then completely ignoring the popular mandate that you were given. It’s one thing trying to ‘influence’ an election with adverts and some bad news stories – that’s just trying to sway the undecided, dithering swing voter but actually refusing to implement the wishes of the people after a one issue, one vote referendum is far more destructive to people’s faith in the value of democracy. Ignoring democracy is the biggest threat to Western democracy.

    But we can rely on the Beeb and the left and the MSM to keep puffing out the outrage smokescreen of how dreadful Putin and Russia are and how nasty Trump is for putting his country first whilst we turn a completely blind eye to the manoeuvring of China, the deceit of not delivering Brexit and the wholesale denigration of anyone with a right of centre viewpoint.

      Payne “so why isn’t it vilified in the same way as Russia? Why the double standards?”

      I would suggest one reason is because China and its cheap goods manufacture is the only thing standing in the way of rampant European & US inflation and the collapse of our economies.

      President Trump needs to think long and hard with the help of a pencil and the back of a very large envelope and do some sub-micro micro economics before putting taxes on ALL Chinese imports into the US. He also needs to do that while blocking out all noise from The Swamp’s economists who work solely on and with ‘macros’.

        Yes, he does but i’m sure he’ll figure it out.

        Of course another reason for the hypocrisy is that so many in the swamp are up to their armpits with the Chinese and are incapable of considering the very real long term threat that China represents.

          Thing about trade, Payne, is that it tends to rule out war. If ‘Jaw, jaw’ is better than ‘War, war’, ‘Trade, trade’ tends to do away with it altogether.

          I would be a little surprised if China had territorial ambitions. They are going to be outnumbered, as well as being ‘out-teched’ already, by the Indians in the next decade. They are also vulnerable to the flexibility and new historical links of smaller Viet Nam, Cambodia, Taiwan & the Philippines to the US.

          The ASEANS have had their wobbles but the potential for trade and also trade with their nearest major international potential partner – the US – are colossal.

          The alternative is for President Trump (as well as the Conservatives in the UK), to really take cost and tax and regulation out of the US economy. Then he might be able to restart a lot of US manufacturing and compete that way. That is actually not so easy. (It would take a miracle for the Tories to wake up and for that to happen here.)

          Trump might just do it. He’s already enraged the enviro-mentalists so he has nothing to lose there. He seems to be either creating jobs or benefiting from a natural upswing. He needs to keep going with the tax cuts but to do it for low earners. In the post-post modern world, they are the ones who drive economies not the high earners.

          That’s where a Trade War with China could be handled. If he merely cuts taxes for the middle and the top earners AND adds tariffs to Chinese and ASEAN imports he will come unstuck on the economy.

          I sent this to Any Answers today but it wasn’t used:
          “Labour Party & anti-Semitism question. I think Sharan Burrow made an error in her first answer on this. She stated that gobalisation has failed to deliver what it promised.

          That is not quite correct. Globalisation delivered and still does but politicians in many countries denied the benefit to their people by handing all the benefits to those who can enjoy them under globalism while heaping taxes and extra costs on the 90% below them. ”

          Sharan Burrow had diverted to a trade unionist-type rant while answering the Labour Party Anti-Semitism question.

          The first major nation to unwind the costs that Libby/Lefty/Alt-Leftism has heaped on its people will reap huge rewards.

          A good reason for getting out of and away from the EU.

      Well said.

      The Russia narrative is so pathetic. They cannot let go as they have staked so much of their credibility on it. They are like a losing gambler throwing away bigger and bigger stakes when he should just walk away. If you are going to lie – especially on this scale – it has to at least be believable. The idea of an alpha patriot like Trump colluding with Russia always struck me as utter horse shit, which indeed it was.

      The BBC flagrantly meddled in the election, doing everything humanly possible to ensure Clinton got elected. Their interference was an an epic and global scale. They have some chutzpah to then turn round and say meddling in elections is bad.

      Very well said Payne.

      Perhaps those shouting about Russian interference might take a reality check on how undercover operations work, a bit of light summer reading ? Ian Fleming, John Le Carre, Charles Cumming. All fiction of course. (if Jeremy ever gets in to No 10 he’ll get it but it might be too late by then )

      I’m constantly baffled by the accusation that anybody who voted to Leave was told in a surreptitious way to do so by the Russians. Or by an over-budget Leave campaign. As far as I remember, every household in the UK was told to vote Remain. It wasn’t subversive at all, it was very clear. It was sent as a leaflet by the UK government to every household in the UK . It cost 9M of our shared money and we all received it.

      The Russia accusation is ludicrous. The establishment did not expect to be challenged, and they still think that they are above the demos. As you quite rightly say. Ignoring democracy is the biggest threat to democracy.

      Yes, it’s an interesting reversal of the situation during the cold war, Stations like Radio Liberty, Radio Free Europe, Deutsche Welle and Radio Israeli were jammed by the Soviet Union until the late eighties. Even though these were at least state financed, no one thought the Soviets were in a stronger position by jamming them when Radio Moscow or Radio Peking were not jammed. Radio Moscow’s support for the “anti-imperialist struggle in British-occupied Northern Ireland” could be seen as heavy grade “fake news” or “meddling”, but not serious enough to jam. After decades of the BBC “nudging” the populace down various nonsensical ideological deadends, it’s not surprising that the powerrs that be fear the general public will succumb to any nonsense they may come across on the social media. Peak gullibleness has been reached when the media propagate the idea that a man can transform himself into a woman by merely “self identifying” as a woman. This seems to be the modern form of transubstantiation.
      It’s no coincidence that the social media began to be attacked in Germany immediately after Merkel’s madness. It’s only when Trump won, that the social media became problematic in the USA. Likewise with Brexit. It’s not “fake news” that is the problem for the authorities, but the ability the social media give to the public to “compare notes”. In the DDR, for example, you could not found a local football club without some member of the party belonging to it. If people could freely talk about their experiences, they soon came to the conclusion that the party was incompetent and lying.

    “The Russian Defense Ministry says it has sent a proposal to Washington to jointly organize the return of Syrian refugees to their homeland following agreements reached between the Russian and American presidents at their summit this week.

    The ministry said on July 20 that it sent Washington a proposal for drawing up a joint action plan to bring Syrian refugees living in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, and elsewhere back to the places they where lived before Syria’s civil war broke out in 2011 — a goal repeatedly espoused by U.S. President Donald Trump since taking office.

        Report on BBC Radio Devon mid week of a group of women (wimmin) in a small Devon (retirement) village aiming to bring in a Syrian family. They were holding a fund raiser (antiques fair) to raise money to accommodate and look after the family. Nobody asked for how long they were planning to provide for these people. How long would it be before the family were ‘in the system’ and requiring the rest of their family to join them in the U.K.? Virtue signalling big time by the organisers and our fav. broadcaster. Does nobody think long term any more?

    Five Live Thursday night were at a crime writing festival, a lovely safe space free from their alt-Left politics. But of course within minutes they complain that there are too many white people there. What if detective fiction is a quintessentially English thing? G.K. Chesterton’s bumbling Father Brown ; Watson’s reticent tales of his good pal Sherlock; Miss Marple is delightfully English. What is the problem? Chinese love gambling; we all know Indian kids from school who became doctors; et cetera.

    Why must every pursuit have an equal representation of every group? I thought diversity was our strength? What would that even achieve – throughout their obsession with ‘diversity’ they never tell us what this would achieve or if it would even be effective. It sounds good but so did communism.

    The nature/nurture argument with children applies to cultures when you look at the geography of where their culture evolved. All the Australians I have known have been really outgoing, which seems inevitable when you consider they come from a tropical paradise. Unequal outcomes will happen when different groups like different things. There is no victim here. In fact forcing groups into pursuits they do not enjoy is tyranny.

    Then again on Toady yesterday they talk about gaming and the ‘problem’ that more men than women work in the sector. Do women really long to fix computers for a living? Many would find it hell. They are institutionally incapable of honesty about certain things, such is the grip of group think and terror of being denounced for a thought crime. Thus we continue to grope round in the dark and waste fortunes chasing tyrannical and impracticable ideals. They really are silly for supporting this ‘hate speech’ nonsense for speaking the truth – essential to even hope to get out of this mess – is illegal if it hurts somebody’s feelings. All this lying and muddled thinking really offends me but sadly my ‘offence’ does not count.

      It rejects the individual in favour of the group .

            Excellent article in the D/Mail yesterday by Tom Utley. Lots of humour in his report about attending a Paul Simon Concert, but re-living his youth made him more depressed at seeing the state of his contemporaries around him. He also made mention that it was a solely white concert – not a BAME to be seen, which he found rather astonishing given that Paul Simon’s repertoire included many African inspired songs.

            I have found the same when attending 60’s concerts (that golden era of music you could actually dance to) – there is never a black face to be seen, but then, why should there be? most weren’t born, and the BAME’s of that era would listen to their own jazz music in smoky cellars, and not really seen at a Hollies or Kinks gig.

    Here’s a fun challenge

    Today BBC presenters feisty femme Rachel Burden and beta bloke Charlie Stayt invite us to think up a name for the european space agency’s new Mars rover.

    Our BBC duo remind us that last time this sort of exercise in public involvement went somewhat awry – 100,000 voted for the name Boaty MacBoatface.

    But fear not, the plebs won’t get it all their own way, our Rachel explains – “A panel of experts will have the last say” – let’s call that the Rachel Burden Proviso.

    Which is pretty much what happened last time. Our Boaty ended up being named the Sir David Attenborough (yawn).

    Can’t help but think about last time we got a vote on a european theme – when David Cameron called the EU Referendum he really ought to have told us about the Rachel Burden Proviso : He should have cautioned us to the effect that however you vote….
    “A panel of experts will have the last say”

    I leave friends hereabouts to ponder their own ideas for naming the Euro Mars Rover. Let your imagination reach for the stars and your sense of humour rove free… (Of course, do remember this is all just for fun…”A panel of experts will have the last say”)

    It is so funny – and effective – how Trump not only ignores their phoney ‘outrage’ over Russia and other issues but does the complete opposite of what they say. There are only so many times you can say the world is going to end without losing all credibility, which is what the MSM have done. He has taken them so far out of their comfort zone and they have not been able to adapt; he bypasses, ridicules and deceives them. The old tactics of smears and ‘outrage’ just do not work and they do not seem to have any other weapons.

    Why should this tiny clique of liars dictate how our leaders should behave? You know May or any other identikit politician would have backtracked the second any ‘journalist’ confected some ‘outrage’ at what she had done. Trump stands up to the cry bullies and it is glorious. He drives them just as mad as they have driven us over the years.

    My ‘pit-stop’ to Toady this morning commenced a little earlier than normal, fortunately. For me it has become, the headlines at 0800 then ‘off’ button. But today, I turned to Toady about 0750 in time to hear the resident islamicist describe their next guest as, “the Architect of the UN’s Migration Compact”. One, Louise Arbour.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louise_Arbour
    The listener’s ability to think clearly was then abused for several minutes by Arbour in respect of the inability for any one or two National countries to stem the ‘inevitable’ flow of migrants. Emphasis on Hungary and the other members of the Visegrad Four as well as Austria et al. All the former are rapidly shutting down their intake of migrants for the sake of their National sanity much less, safety. But for Louise in full flow, (low cooing noises in the background from the resident muslima), the ‘inevitability’ of millions upon millions of moron savages flooding to the Globalist Empire known as the EU cannot be stopped.
    Our Louise is another ‘lofty’ person that has never had a real job. But as a result of the Toady interview she firmly nailed her Globalist credentials to the mast. I have often commented that it is the UN that is the enemy of the peoples of the World and I, today, appreciate the BBC having described her as the “Architect” of the Grand Plan which no doubt carries the support of Soros and the NWO.

    A Welsh Government spokeswoman said: “The diesel generator is not a permanent fixture and is used solely for the trial as a temporary connection to the electricity network is not possible.

    “When electric buses are fully introduced, the charging points will be permanent and charged directly from the mains, with no generator required.”

    (It’s a great way of avoiding road tax though .. move the engine outside of the bus.)

      Well, I reckon once they’ve finished rolling these out to everyone, they will increase their tariffs at peak times in order to encourage people to do their washing etc on evenings.

        More from this link from the Breitbart original

        https://gcs.civilservice.gov.uk/news/alex-aiken-introduces-the-rapid-response-unit/

        Based across the Cabinet Office and No.10, the RRU is neither a “rebuttal” unit, nor is it a “fake news” unit. During this pilot period, we’ve tested the concept, evaluated the impact of specific initiatives and examined how strongly stories are shared online.

        After a lot of fluff, this

        1. As press officers we know that rebuttal will often not be an appropriate course of action.

        2. As digital content experts we know that pithy, polarised untruths cannot and should not always be met with snappy responses.

        3. As communicators we all know that good communication starts with listening, and that we must be alert to what is being said about government policy, including mis- or disinformation.

        4. Finally, as civil servants we know that impartiality, accuracy and transparency is absolutely fundamental to everything we do.

        First two – nonsense , followed by a lie and the final Big Lie of the Orwellian type.

    Well we could go back to T forms or SAD documents or even TIR carnets for truck consignments and it should be even easier to clear customs now than it was pre 92 . The Germans were especially good at this , loading a truck at a factory and making those premises a customs clearing place . Your paperwork included a cleared T Form with your CMR and away you went .

    Let’s not forget that very few containers or trucks are and were back then actually physically inspected .

    Paperwork designed by SITPRO will be used and a seamless movement should be the norm .

    Not once do the BBC mention that he actually shot down German/Nazi/Enemy aircraft during the Battle of Britain. That was the whole point of being a Spitfire pilot in 1940.

    We’re all friends now of course and that would upset our new German masters.

    He should have been Knighted.

    “”He claimed a Heinkel He 111 shot down on 11 September, and a quarter share in a Junkers Ju 88 downed on 27 September 1940. Two (and one shared) Messerschmitt Bf 109s were claimed ‘damaged’ during November 1940. A Bf 109 was claimed shot down on 9 July 1941 over France.””

      To get a knighthood or peerage these days you have to be one of a different type of “few” – such as Somalian refugees who can run called ‘mo’ or failed politicians call ‘nick’ who break their manifesto promises.

      Kids who put their lives on the line to defend their country need not apply – in fact – they’d probably get investigated for so called ‘war crimes’ for killing some kraut pilot.

      In history, mass migration was either:

      Neither was completely desirable for everyone. Somebody had to pay something. It comes at a cost

        Though some invasions and colonisations led to some good. I can think of the Roman invasion of Britain, and also the colonisation by Britain of some countries in the world, that needed that one step for them to get started.
        In both instances, after setting the natives on the right road, the invaders left without much fuss.

      There is another battle coming between globalisation [for the benefit of many, not just the few – if I may borrow a phrase 😉 ] and those who have controlled it so far and globalism which is enjoyed by the few at the expense of the many.

      President Trump is, I think, part of it. Brexit may be part of it.

      Globalism doesn’t like any of that and wants to push back. Amazingly, the bulk of the foot soldiers on the side of Globalism will derive no benefit from it unless they manage to scramble to the top of a very greasy, twisted, pole. In their suffering en route they demand all sorts of compensations from the poor souls backing globalisation.

    I see that James Gunn has been fired by Disney but I’ve no real sympathy for him. GOTG was great but GOTG2 wasn’t. After a good opening 20 minutes it became bloated, self indulgent and well boring. Makes me think that as much as Gunn pushed her aside, Nicole Perlman’s work on the first script was important.

    Unfortunately Gunn let his success go to his head and his endless political jibes and virtue signalling became so tiresome that I stopped following him on social media.

    If he wasn’t so set on lecturing everyone and ‘showing us the way’ people wouldn’t have looked at him through the prism of politics. When you start preaching, you’ve got to expect that some will start digging and maybe now he can experience the kind of persona non grata witchhunt that his brethren would carry out to anyone expressing a right of centre viewpoint in his Hollywood bubble.

    Watched the last 15 minutes of Dateline London on the BBC News channel (11:30am to 12noon today). 3 carefully chosen guests invited to talk around a table and basically agree with the the heavily weighted questions from the BBC bloke running the show. Same bias as BBC Question Time where it is one centre right person vs 3 far left people.

    BBC bloke asked guest Polly, “how much damage has Trump done to America?”
    Polly, “loads… he has damaged it for generations and he is anti American”. She carries on having an non interrupted bile spewing anti Trump rant.

    Then asks some French lady pretty much the same and she replies “he is a traitor blah blah blah” and she has no interruptions to talk her shite too.

    With about 30 seconds left the male guest gets a sentence in saying “calling him a traitor is just the same as whites calling Obama a traitor and it…..”

    BBC bloke then interrupts “that’s all we have time for I’m afraid”.

      Saw Stevie way back in 84.
      Gave up playing music for a few months afterwards. How do you compete with THAT?
      There is talent-and then there`s Stevie Wonder.
      Sod the politics, this man is our Mozart.
      Only Prince comes close-but Stevie has the heart and soul, Leonard Cohen comes close though.

    Don’t even bother to listen to Radio 4s new series Where’s The F in News for any reason .

    Don’t bother to see if it’s funny . It’s not and every normal person wil agree to that .
    Don’t bother monitoring it for bias . It’s so biased that you’d think it was a parody of itself .

    I’m hearing that Hammond is being criticised by Sajid David for wanting to give eu people preferential immigration treatment.
    Does anyone think we are being prepared for Sajid becoming pm.

      EG,
      There’s only one, ‘preferential immigration’ approach. Stop them all. Immediately. From the EU and elsewhere. But, hey, that’s no doubt what the voter wants but, fact is, no politician in the House of Commons has any regard for what the public want. It just works one way: the voter keeps handing over the tax to support a Government intent upon doing precisely what they want. Sorry, I really mean what the Globalist/NWO want. Voting next election? What is the choice having decided never to vote tory ever again? None of the small/growing parties will be big/strong enough by the probable time of any next election. What then? It seems to me any local Monster Raving Loony Party candidate will be worth a vote more so that any others.

      EG, the fact that SJ is in one of the top jobs makes him a candidate. Don’t be too down on him yet. He hasn’t really had a chance to shine in this job.

      To be fair, he was hopeless as Treas. Sec. but he was only reciting a Party Mantra and working within ‘tramlines’ that the Tories may be forced to junk.

    Friday : Melbourne, Laura Southern /Molyneux PEACEFUL hall event
    Police insist she has to pay $68K AUD to police the violent left Antifa-event outside on the street
    \\That makes the police protection money a tax on conservatives – an intimidating tax that the Leftist fascists actually plan on.//

    Andrew Bolt’s additional comment :
    \\ why is Southern billed for the policing costs caused by the Left?
    This is simply a definitional error.
    I’d love to see this one go to a court – with a sensible judge. //

      It’s incredible that the Australian police even thought about it let alone actually sending her and I think Stefan Molyneux a bill. Are the chief police officers over there also Common Purpose graduates because it’s not a coincidence that every white, Christian Western country is having its law and order undermined.

      In addition, Lauren Southern’s film Farmlands, which is on YouTube, brings into stark focus the racism and hatred of white people that the blacks in South Africa exhibit; it’s visceral, it’s brutal and it’s pure evil. And the fact that the collectivists such as antifa applaud this black racism, demonstrates they have chosen evil against good, satan against Jesus Christ.

      Isn’t that what people of all countries have always done?

      These BBC food types would like to farm four, named hens, sell them to the plebs, and still make £0.5M p.a. (The plebs would get benefit cheques to pay for the hens. The plebs get ‘good’ food, the celebs get £0.5M, win-win, the rest of us pay the taxes).

    The BBC is fond of scolding its audience for the beastly treatment of black footballers in the past. A Man U v Celtic youth match currently being shown (Red Button). Almost all the Man U future millionaires are black, whilst the Celtic team from Kranky’s multi-culti paradise are hideously white.

        The Scots are keen on immigrants K.
        Most of the non EU population in England was deliberately foisted on the English by Scots. Blair being the prime example.

        When the Scots get their independence they get three million Asians and three million Africans as part of the deal. They invited them.

    The female reporter on The Open clearly has no passion or knowledge whatsoever of golf. I hate it when they report on sport as if they were just emptying out the contents of their handbag. Hallowed ‘diversity’ is not strength here as I hope for a sports reporter to at least have some understanding or passion for what they are reporting on.

      Not only that, BB. The coverage is generally poor. First of all though, why did the fee-payer supported Beeb dump the Open? (Personally, I have zero interest in athletics; admittedly, that is an issue of taste, but I do wonder… ) Furthermore, the six TV news did not even show us the leaderboard; there was a garbled report from Ms Downs, end of.
      It was, as exactly as you say, all about ticking boxes, never mind content.

        I am not a golf enthusiast.
        I am an admirer of the spirit in which the game is played.
        Players up to their knees in grass reporting accidental fouls which were invisible to anyone else.
        Which made the failure to immediately disqualify Phil Mickelson for stopping his ball rolling off the green in a recent tournament disappointing.
        I hope this is not the beginning of the thin end of a slippery wedge [sic].

        Snooker and darts are the only other activities which seem to me to be played in accordance with both the laws and spirit of the game. But there are betting issues.

        Cheating in football from kick off to final whistle is decades old.

        Cricket now has the same problem, thank you Australia.

        Tennis should have a “loss of hearing may occur” safety warning. Seles should been disqualified
        immediately to nip the grunting/shouting/screaming problem in the bud.
        Perhaps titles should be retroactively withdrawn, a la Armstrong.

        Armstrong’s disqualification has not improved cycling. Therapeutic Use Exemptions are cheating and unfortunately cyclists from the UK are the most prominent, successful, cuplrits.

        This is merely a reflection of current society. Of which “Remain” cheating and lying is the worst recent
        example. Paid for by the taxpayer and BBC licence payer.

        I expect there’s a kind of generational struggle at BBC Sport. There’s an older, slightly less mad group vs the young turks. The Kerenskyites know that they can’t go too far and abandon ‘white’ middle class sports like golf and tennis, even if they’re not keen on the undiverse viewer demographics (ie old, pale and stale).

        So, to keep the Leninists happy they focus on a couple of individuals – Tiger Woods & Serena Williams, and front their programs with placewomen presenters who’ve never done any sport in their lives.

        If it was up to the Leninists, BBC Sport would probably just consist of athletics and football, whatever gets the most BAME faces on telly.
