      According to Al Beeb, Carney says that Brexit is ‘undesirable’. Didn’t he admit he was wrong before?
      Is he a ‘man of straw’ ? Is that why he was chosen as the Governor of the Bank of England? ………………….

        Dear Mr Taffman
        Thank you for your enquiry. We are pleased to advise you that Mr Carney is a man of impeccable globalist credentials and we chose him for this reason. He worked at Goldman Sachs for 13 years, is a member of the Group of Thirty, is on the Foundation Board of the World Economic Forum and has attended Bilderberg Group meetings. He was appointed by George Osborne on our orders advice; we were particularly keen that a foreigner is in charge of the Bank of England, as this undermines national sovereignty and authority. Incidentally, he is often described as a Canadian but I would like to assure you that he holds Irish and British passports as well, making him a true man of the World without any national commitments. I hope this information has proven helpful.
        Yours globally etc.

          Goldman’s tentacles stretch far & wide in US Government circles and they do quite a lot of work for the UK Government.

          Their tentacles also stretch elsewhere via past political adiministrations.

          Speaking of which, The Ed Balls/Yvette Cooper show (bandwaggon?) is rolling on, courtesy of BBC R4 including the TOADY Programme this morning.

          Dear Responder,
          Thank you for your for you swift and succinct reply.
          It would appear that those in power have put ‘a wolf in sheep’s clothing’ to look after ‘the old lady of Threadneedle street’? Do the cads mean to wreck our country and economy on the alter of the EU? What now for the term ‘as safe as the Bank of England’?

          Yours,

    Anyone raised this article about Salvini yet?:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-44921974

    Written by James Reynolds (apparently his father was also a Beeboid?, strange that). It just reads like a cobbled together collection of every smear and jibe about the man Reynolds could collect from his vantage point in Rome.

    Interviewees: Salvini’s embittered ex-wife, and the author of a book promising to reveal (nefarious) secrets about the man. Hmm… balanced then.

    Lots of (malicious) rumours and a few quotes (taken out of context?), which mostly sound like Italian humour to me (their humour is generally ribald and crude, but not really cruel).

    What do I think about the man after reading this impartial (sic) article from the BBC? Honestly, I still don’t know what to make of him, but such transparently blatant propaganda from the BBC is laughable.

      I tried reading it earlier on and got through about half of it before I just couldn’t take any more of James Reynolds’ smug piece of self-indulgent Scheiss. He probably thinks he is so clever but the article really is an undisguised and unadulterated piece of gutter journalism without even the remotest semblance of a veneer of objectivity.

      Using the parlance of Cockney rhyming slang, the man is a Berk and one of the highest order at that.

      In 2001, James Reynolds was sent to Jerusalem to work as a BBC Middle East Correspondent. Then following persistent complaints of anti-Semitism from the public and Israel. In 2004, Malcolm Balen was commissioned to write the Balen Report. The contents of the Balen Report remain secret because of the BBC’s legal obligation to be seen to be impartial, and therefore Mr Sugar could have sued the BBC if the contents had been revealed. But then in response to the contents of the Balen Report, James Reynolds was transferred to China in 2006.

    Portland police arrest four in far-right rally and counter-protest

    But somehow miss this from the WSJ…..as the Democrat mayor turns a blind eye to left-wing violence…

    Anarchy Breaks Out in Portland, With the Mayor’s Blessing
    ‘A vicious mob targeted the ICE office and even a food cart. The police followed orders to do nothing.

    For more than five weeks, as many as 200 people had occupied the site to demand ICE’s immediate abolition. They’re gone now, but a community is left reeling. Thirty-eight days of government-sanctioned anarchy will do that.
    A mob surrounded ICE’s office in Southwest Portland June 19. They barricaded the exits and blocked the driveway. They sent “guards” to patrol the doors, trapping workers inside. At night they laid on the street, stopping traffic at a critical junction near a hospital. Police stayed away. “At this time I am denying your request for additional resources,” the Portland Police Bureau’s deputy chief, Robert Day, wrote to federal officers pleading for help. Hours later, the remaining ICE workers were finally evacuated by a small federal police team. The facility shut down for more than a week.

    Signs called ICE employees “Nazis” and “white supremacists.” Others accused them of running a “concentration camp,” and demanded open borders and prosecution of ICE agents. Along a wall, vandals wrote the names of ICE staff, encouraging others to publish their private information online.

    Federal workers were defenseless. An ICE officer, who asked that his name not be published, told me one of his colleagues was trailed in a car and confronted when he went to pick up his daughter from summer camp. Later people showed up at his house. Another had his name and photo plastered on flyers outside his home accusing him of being part of the “Gestapo.”

    Where were the police? Ordered away by Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler, who doubles as police commissioner. “I do not want the @PortlandPolice to be engaged or sucked into a conflict, particularly from a federal agency that I believe is on the wrong track,” he tweeted. “If [ICE is] looking for a bailout from this mayor, they are looking in the wrong place.”’

      I saw this on Tucker and it’s pretty shocking. A govt building under siege from a mass of protestors and when they call for help from the Portland Police, who have the jurisdiction to cover civil disobedience, they say they aren’t going to come and resolve the situation.

      That is disgusting, just completely out of order.

        It is nothing less than authorised anarchy – by an elected US official at that – and therefore absolutely effing terrifying.

        The self-righteous Left now believe they are above the law and free to act accordingly, in the knowledge they stand a good chance of never being prosecuted (or they’d riot even more).

    Dawn Sturgess had two sons with a man named Andrew Hope. Andrew Hope has worked for the UK based multinational military and cyber-tech spy firm, Qinetiq, since its creation in 2001. Starting as Avionics Instillation Manager, he worked his way up to the rank of Senior Systems Engineer. QinetiQ was formed in 2001 after the government privatized one half of the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA). The other half of DERA was renamed the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) Porton Down. QinetiQ is a private defence research arm of the government based northwest of Porton Down, at Boscombe Down Airfield. Ex-director of the CIA, George Tenet, was Non-Executive Director of Qinetiq Group from 2006 to 2008. Former US Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, Stephen Cambone has worked for QinetiQ since 2007.

      smoogie, the BBC are keen to get rid of Corbyn & McDonnell because top Income Tax rates will rocket under a Labour Government and McDonnell may not look with favour on Beeboids’ favourite tax avoidance vehicle, the Personal Service Company.

      Could there be any possible connection between this from Ed Balls: “He also described Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership project as a “leftist utopian fantasy, devoid of connection to the reality of people’s lives”.” and the BBC’s current frequent running of a ‘Mr and Mrs Programme’ on a radio near me?

    With the help of luvvies , Richard Branson types , senior civil servants and others , they were near to a post democratic age , when Common Purpose and Bilderburgers would rule us wisely and steer us into the sunlit uplands of a world of no prejudice .

      I heard about five minutes of ‘Just A Girl’ on the radio last week. Forget the content, the script was so poor it sounded as if it was written by someone at primary school. Speech didn’t flow, just as though it were people speaking only reading from a q &a sheet put out for people thinking of transitioning. ‘How will people react?’, ‘What will it do to my body’, etc etc.

      The lunacy of this is that countries always spy on each other, so the media acting with a ‘it’s dreadful that the Russians are spying on us’ is just so infantile. The Russians will ALWAYS be spying on the US, just as the US will ALWAY be spying on the Russians. Likewise China, UK, Israel etc will be doing the same. That’s not going to change and these children in the media and politics need to grasp this fundamental point.

      On from this, the notion that Trump (an Alpha patriot) would be working for Putin is just ridiculous and it’s only when you take a moment to step back from the coal face of political fighting, that you can see just how batshit crazy this idea is. How in the hell the democrats and the media have made this a thing is just insane.

      What possible motivation would Putin have to want Trump in power. He already knew he could control Hillary by bunging her cash as he did with the Uranium One fiasco but Trump, seriously.

      Why would he be pulling the strings to make the US economy bigger and stronger, why would he be wanting tougher sanctions than he ever received from Obama, why would he want someone ready and willing to drop bombs on his people, why would he want someone who has literally shaken up the entire world and is re-asserting the US as a kick-ass, take no shit world powerhouse?

          Oh that’s a great point. I’d forgotten about that one.

          So he’s secretly tapping the phone of seemingly the most powerful leader in Europe and also telling the Russian foreign minister that you’d have ‘more flexibility’ once you’d got the election out of the way (why would you have more flexibility Obama – you mean flexibility to do things that wouldn’t be popular with the electorate if they found out). And then just as he leaves (couldn’t do it during his 8 year term) decides to boot out a clutch of Russian diplomats just to nicely poison the well of good relations as he bolts for the door.

          But of course, what am I saying, his administration was a model of transparent honesty and integrity.

    “Last year, the former head of the Borders Unit at the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) warned that “successive governments have dismantled the layered mosaic of border security” which once protected Britain’s coast.

    The Home Affairs Select Committee has also said that the Border Force has a “worryingly low” number of ships to patrol 7,000 miles of shoreline. At one point in 2017, there were just three boats available to guard UK shores.

    Former Head of the Royal Navy, Lord West of Spithead, claimed that outside of major ports, the UK was “highly vulnerable”.

    For “successive governments” read “civil servants” or “special advisors”.

    Anyone tried to book an appointment with their GP recently?
    Ever more Byzantine procedures, a mad scramble on the phone at 8am sharp, endless waiting and recorded messages, to finally be told the doctor will call back at some unstated time, to make an appointment weeks down the line.
    Simple logic and arithmetic would suggest that the hundreds of thousands, the millions, of new arrivals to our shores must be having an impact on all services, including medical.

    Thankfully the beeb is there to explain that mass uncontrolled immigration is nothing but a benefit to the economy, that furthermore all third worlders are doctors and therefore an asset to the NHS, and that the real problem is evil Tory underfunding.

      “Ever more Byzantine procedures”

      That strikes a chord.

      My sister in law was diagnosed at the beginning of the year with skin cancer. In her case it is a basal cell carcinoma which, unlike a melanoma, is relatively common and rarely dangerous.

      She is still waiting for treatment, which is irritating but not life threatening. However, in order to get to this present state of non-treatment she has seen no fewer than four doctors, and when she finally gets treated (promised this month) she will have seen a total of five doctors, unless the Byzantine NHS finds a way of inserting yet another time and money wasting stage into the process. She has also accumulated a pile of paperwork, much of it duplicated. Why, in 2018, does one NHS doctor have to “write” to another?

      The NHS couldn’t organise a rice pudding, as they say around here.

            Strictly speaking no. Which is unfortunate as there are many illnesses affecting humans they could treat and do better. Just an example, my hand was bitten by a dog so I cleaned it up and put a bandage on. Several days later the pain had me off to the doctors who said it was healing up ok. I almost lost the hand and required weeks of therapy. My vet told me that I would not have had this trouble if I had recieved antibiotics. But the doctor would never do that because we are all becoming addicted to them, aren’t we and resistance to them is on the increase. My vet said he always gives them to dogs who have injuries from bites.

            In the case of my dog, who weighs 70 k, the size of the machine for radio therapy was big enough for a human and as accurate, hitting the tumour from four directions and avoiding brain tissue

              I’ve never quite got the premise that we are becoming resistant to antibiotics. If someone is on them constantly, then yes I could see that the body would start to ‘get used to them’ and so become resistant; but what about like me, who has probably had them around half a dozen times in as many decades ? surely my immune system hasn’t deteriorated so badly that it couldn’t take them ?
              OR are pharmaceutical companies manufacturing a weaker formulae so they can charge more for high quantities needed ?

                I think you need to look at it from the point of view of the bacteria rather than the people they infect. (If BBC employees can have points of view, I’m sure that bacteria can!)

                It’s natural selection at work. Bacteria genes mutate on a random basis and produce numerous strains with varying resistance to antibiotics. By chance, some of the stronger mutations protect the cells from antibiotics whereas the weaker, or un-mutated bacteria, are killed by the over-prescribed antibiotics. This leaves the stronger, resistant bacteria with less competition.

                The MSM tend to get it wrong. Hard to believe, isn’t it? They imply that antibiotics cause the bacteria to mutate. This is like saying that if you cut off the tails of 1000 generations of mice, it will eventually result in mice being born without tails. It won’t.

          A consultation costs 25 Euros. Around 24 Euros of that is reimbursed, almost immediately by credit transfer. The drugs, etc., are funded by the state (eventually by the Former UK) via my “Carte Vitale”. Additional and Hospital stuff is covered by my private Mutuelle Insurance (about 1K Euros a year, for an all-singing, all dancing one), but as I have a heart condition, all related medical care is paid for by the state. The mutuelle is a belt-and-braces thing…

          Which is the better system? Good question. The French one seems clumsy, and you have to remember to take cash when you visit the doctor. However, you don’t get a waiting room full of malingerers and others, who are benefiting from free treatment.

    An article in The Times today states 1100 BBC staff have grievances over ‘equal pay.’ It’s great to see them hoist by their own petard over this. As Peterson says, to guarantee equal pay requires a vast bureaucracy and endless wrangling over what constitutes equal work. Top trougher Carrie Gracie set a precedent by spuriously claiming she was hard done by and set in action a feminist heist of the BBC.

    The BBC find it hard enough, but imagine how devestating such claims can be for smaller organisations? It is all a house built on sand: men and women want and are interested in different things thus disparities in pay and other areas are just and inevitable. Alas SJWs epitomised by the BBC have shrieked for so long that men and women are the same that opportunists and parasite lawyers will cheat their way to billions exploiting this ‘equal pay’ bullsh*t.

    Carrie Gracie donated her ‘undisclosed sum’ to charity! Yeah, right – very convenient the sum was undisclosed. And it is a probably a trougher mate earning a similarly vast sum who runs the charity.

      Thanks. Good article.
      “Now BBC History serves to distribute work within the BBC’s cabal of presenters and journalists, to elevate junior historians as long as they act as talking-heads for the liberal consensus, to starve rigorous historians of publicity, to pay off BBC insiders or loyalists with book spin-offs, to sully traditional fields with social justice, to rewrite history so that all problems can be blamed on conservatives, to use history as a platform for left-wing agendas.”

      Exactly so.

    So this ‘rural crime wave’ where big vehicles are stolen to smash open cash points etc . . . I wonder who might be behind this recent enrichment? It sounds like the sort of crime common in certain Eastern European countries. Apologies for such a ‘xenophobic’ observation.

    The countryside used to be a safe space free from such multicultural delights but it has fallen now.

    https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/aug/06/outcry-sky-news-australia-interview-far-right-extremist-blair-cottrell

    The Guardian are collectively besides themselves with outrage, and invite the few people left reading it to join them in their frenzy.

    A despicable cove called Blair Cottrell was interviewed by Sky. The headline makes it appear that the UK’s Sky was doing the interview, cannot think why the Guardian would wish to mislead its readers. It was the Auzzie version of Sky.

    Now Cottrell is a right winger nutter with a fondness for Hitler and the Nazis, so there could be a debate about whether he should be heard.

    Now in the UK we have a gentleman by the name of John McDonnell, Labour’s shadow chancellor of the exchequer. His hero is Stalin. Yes, that Stalin. He worships a man whose insane left-wing ideology murdered tens of millions of people. When Stalin wasn’t starving people to death through his absurd command economic policies, he deliberately starved to death millions of people as a sort of punishment. Ukrainians had to eat their own dead children to survive.

    By the way, Corbyn and McDonald promise to bring the same Soviet ‘command economy’ to a country near you. But apparently no one on the BBC or Channel4 wish to discuss this.

    Now, if right winger extremists ought to be banned, where does the BBC/Guardian stand on left wing extremists?

      Well on the one side we have “Real Brexit” plans devised by David Davis, Boris Johnson, Bill Cash, Jacob Rees-Mogg, John Redwood, Nigel Farage, Gerald Batten and even Lord Owen.

      But Theresa May put them all in the bin and got Olly Robbins to devise a “Fake Brexit” plan with the help of Philip Hammond, Dominic Grieve, Mark Carney, Tony Blair, Peter Mandelson, Michel Barnier, Emmanuel Macron and even Angela Merkel.

      Olly Robbins and Michel Barnier devised their Fake Brexit plans in secret, so all these disagreements with the EU, and all these meetings between the remain traitors and foreigners, are all PR stunts to make Theresa May look as though she is still fighting for Brexit.

      Also, the simple but expensive reason why Theresa May wants to pay the EU £39 Billion pounds is because Mark Carney wanted to put meat on his statement that “Brexit costs you £900”.

    Socialist bookshop in London ‘attacked by mask-wearing fascists’
    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-45075895

    This fake news is doing the rounds on the leftie liberal Marxist Jew Hating Tweeters (and BBC). Notice the BBC’s use of quotes in the headline. We all know the BBC tactic of using quotes to get their agenda across without any facts.

    Here is actual video of the “attack” by “mask wearing facists”
    https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2614588452099863&id=1833000846925298&anchor_composer=false

    Notice that they all have caps on apart from one with Trump mask. Also note no attack took place apart from one anti-Tommy Robinson placard was ripped up.

    Whilst the protesters could have been less potty mouthed they are no worse to Momentum protests.

    What is alarming is the utter crap that bookshop stocks. Right up the BBC’s street with Islam loving anti white themes. Looking at the bookshop’s own website they even have a book for kids called “A is for Activist” described as It is an ABC board book written and illustrated for the next generation of progressives: families who want their kids to grow up in a space that is unapologetic about activism, environmental justice, civil rights, LGBTQ rights and everything else that activists believe in and fight for.
    https://bookmarksbookshop.co.uk/view/34114/A+is+for+Activist+%255BBoard+book%255D

    Ironic that they don’t like activists in their own shop though.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-44777755
    The character of a historic quarter in South Africa’s city of Cape Town is under threat by gentrification, long-time residents tell the BBC’s Mohammed Allie.
    Many of the families in the neighbourhood have been living there for generations, but despite its prime location, which offers sweeping views of Table Mountain above and the harbour area below, Bo-Kaap has never been a rich area.
    But things began to change after the apartheid-era Group Areas Act, which restricted areas to a particular racial group, was abolished in 1991. The Bo-Kaap property market then opened up to rich foreigners, as well as to well-heeled South Africans from other communities.
    “There’s no problem with outsiders moving into our area as long as they respect the culture, this is obviously a largely Muslim area.

Nope, it’s the lack of UK follow up help — which left them without a support officer or liaison officer (services that do not apply in the event of an overseas death).

    Almost immediately they deviate to a story about an anti-drug operation, lots of hilarity about the word ‘rummage’, a word that used to be in common use in the UK of my youth and certainly as a nine-year-old I knew that that was what HM Customs called their ship-inspection crews.

    Apparently this matters because the, presumably, insignificant illegal drugs business has to be figured into GDP so that the EU can tax us more. Fortunately we had a contribution by someone from the ONS who, with great professionalism, refused to be baited into the BBC UKIP/Brexit trap. I thought he was starting to make sense, GDP was effectively the ‘profit’ after costs had been deducted. However they lost me when GNP was brought into the picture as Ireland has an enlarged GDP as it shelters Global companies who re-patriate their profits to their real owners. (Isn’t that a cost that should have been deducted from GDP anyway?).

    Now that they have confused us over GDP another wally jumps in to tell us that the Japanese economy has been static for donkey’s but ‘everything’ is better there, where ‘bullet trains’ on purpose-built tracks with no waystations run on time to the micro-second as opposed to the sub-standard (Japanese-built!) trains running on 150 year-old crowded infrastructure in the UK that don’t. I was just waiting for him to claim that Japan was a socialist utopia but he didn’t quite get that far. Probably he realised that Japan isn’t in the EU and doesn’t do mass-immigration so isn’t really a good exemplar for the BBC-pushed agenda.

    I didn’t see any sub-titles, perhaps that is where I went wrong?

      In science, if you cannot compare say a (1) Britain in the EU. With a (2) Britain that has never been in the EU. Scientists therefore look for proxy evidence.

      An English speaking island nation with a predominately white British population, with the Queen as head of state, the Queen on the coins and a Union Jack in the flag. But NEVER having ever been a member of the European Union even though they sing in the Eurovision Song Contest.

      This proxy exists, its called Australia, it has a points based Immigration control system. And because it does not pay billions of pounds in fees, to trade with a trade deficit, with only 13 percent of its economy with the European Union. It has a gross domestic product (at purchasing power parity) per capita, that is 11 percent higher than Britain.

      Therefore you have to be either a loony or a moron to support our continued membership of the European Union.

      Fear about the unknown future of the economy is all these morons have, they have nothing positive to say about the undemocratic governance of the EU. All they have is this primitive low IQ emotion of “fear of the future, without Britain’s white European mummy”

      Everybody already knows GDP is only a rough measure
      If you pay your neighbours to look after your kids, and she pays you look after hers, the GDP seems to have grown a lot
      .. but really life has not changed.

    In the Daily Telegraph today Boris says he is against banning the burka like the Danes have done. He qualifies this somewhat by saying that in a business discussion or consultation then it would be polite if the Muslim woman did uncover her face. But he thinks it’s against true libertarian values to force someone to stop doing something when they are not doing any harm.
    Boris is reasonably sound on Brexit but on this issue he is just another silly liberal with their head buried in the sand.The Danes banned it to assert , in a small way, their own culture and values over those of Islam . The fact that no leading politician in the UK da reds to speak out against Islam means we are defenceless against the ever quickening pace of Islamification. As to libertarian values, who is there to protect the most important libertarian value of all , free speech? Clearly when it comes to Islam Boris is happy to go with the tide of the last fifty years and allow our values and culture to be gradually conquered by Islam without any resistance at all.

      Heck ! Let’s have a referendum on the burka. Hmm ……. they promised us a red button next to the TV years ago so the people could vote on all sorts of stuff.
      But hey, that smacks of democracy and that will never do.

      Would he feel happy sitting next to someone in a nazi uniform or KKK robes? They would be ‘putting out a message’ just as any woman that is wearing Islamic dress is and that message is that she is part of a supremacist cult that is at war with the ‘unbeliever’, a war that will not end until all ‘unbelievers’ have ‘reverted’ or been killed.
      Meanwhile in the USA some think it is ‘unacceptable’ to wear baseball caps bearing the slogan ‘Make America Great Again’. We would want to upset the Marxist/Muslim supremacists would we?

        And Boris was the one begging Trump not to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris agreement. Face it – he’s just another well heeled celeb insulated from the real world. And we have far too many of those sort. Why because of their money or media status we are supposed to give a monkey’s about what such people think is beyond me.

        Yes, wearing the burka is simply a provocation and a marking of already conquered territory.
        I am listening to LBC and two non-arabic muslims have been on to explain exactly the point you are making. They appreciate the threat they pose to Britain because they are aware of the damage they have caused in other parts of the world. The burka wearers and the Big Beards are strutting around in the uniform of ISIS. Muslim woman making this point is called “intolerant and hateful” by Adams and Big Beard apologist. Words fail me!
        The LBC fool Darrem Adams just does not have the brain power to understand the situation. “Terrorists wear a lot of things, underpants for example, does wearing underpants make you a terrorist” he asks. The stupidity of these people is monumental, exasperating and highly dangerous.

      That`ll teach him to suck up to Islam then DT!
      For Neil Nunes on the 5pm news says that the MCB are STILL unhappy with his comparing niqab-wearing Muslims to letter boxes or bank robbers.
      So, even when he`s licking their left hands, their BBC chums are trying to muzzle him with their red right one.
      That`ll learn him.
      As for those two murderers from IS?…well, the MCB were neither asked or given their comments about THEIR story to the BBC wallahs like Niel or Eddie.
      Bias or what?..if you`re asking about Boris, why not ask something about our two moptop Beatles who`ve been stranded after their gig in Syria?

    You know the only real change since the World went nuts is people having mobile phones clamped to their heads.
    They might have assured at the outset us they’re safe but who knows what the long term effects are?

      Mobile phones must be microwaving the brains of young people, therefore making their brain cells go “Pop” at a much increased rate than in the natural environment.

      The long term effects planned by the establishment are to reduce IQ to the levels needed for people to march in support of posh elitist undemocratic members of the establishment, such as eurocrats and members of the House of Lords.

      With Remain supporters, it has worked.

    The Director of Primary Care at NHS England, Dr Arvind Madan, posted inflammatory comments on a GP’s forum under the fake profile ‘Devil’s Advocate’
    In one he said: “We can get 6 figure salaries for working 4 days a week, 45 weeks a year.
    Run that past the general public and see how much sympathy you get.”

    He’s been forced to resign
    Hmm he wrote an article then commented under it using a pseudonym.
    He used the same pseudonym to praise his own work..well that is a weird & sleazy.
    But I can’t see anything illegal with the first thing ..high profile people do use pseudonyms
    and I spot activist using sock puppet accounts to comment under their friends articles, you always suspect 3 different profiles are the same person trying to build a fake consensus, but I’d just debunk each one, one by one.

    Really ticks me off that Brighton basically turns into a rubbish dump on Pride every year.
