    BBC, will you please stop it,

    Final score has two women commenting on todays football.

    You are not breaking barriers. It’s awful.

    It’s like watching a knitting circle.

    Please stop. Pretty please?

    Late last night, BBC Paper Reviews : On hearing of the potential return of Nigel Farage to the fray, one Susie Boniface said something like “Oh no, you can’t get rid of him, he just won’t go round the U-bend.”

    Classy huh? 🙁

      Sadly this is the level that younger journalists AND presenters have sunk to when discussing anyone of note. I often wonder if these people were dragged up without manners rather than nurtured with good behaviour.

      Nasty comments, personal and otherwise would have been an anathema to the old school of tv reporters. Bernard Levin and Robin Day would sock it to the politicians of the day when they were a presence on the box, but it was always with good grace and a healthy respect. The current lot* of oiks may have a degree in Egyptian to warrant their place on tv, but a degree doth not a man make !

      (NB please note that I have used the UK term of ‘lot’, rather than the new Americanism of a ‘bunch’ which seems to be ever present in our language now)

    Thursday : BBC Leed’s Liz Green tweeted she had Katie Hopkins on about Bradford No Go Zones
    She didn’t actually tweet the actual audio but rather BBC Leeds Live feed
    Here’s a direct link to the audio at 9m35s, about 6min item
    then 1st caller supports KT
    All the Beeboids followers tweeted ‘how horrid, this person should be banned from the radio’

      Sadly, am doing a bit of history preparation for next term.
      Reading on how the French Revolution was intimately linked to what happened in Russia not much more than a century afterwards.
      Same things pertain today.
      Basically, the Anarchists who did the Socialists dirty work under the Internationale of the 19th C, had a “third section” that were neither Marxist or Bakhunin, Babeuf of Proudhon.
      Just nasty opportunist nihilsts-vultures who eat the carrion as the wars rage at their prompting.
      The BBC and the EU are the pastel Internationale, between Islam and Corbyn today are the Occupy, Antifa chancers.
      Same goal, same tactics.
      And we allow the BBC to spout crap via the railway tannoys-and even THEY didn`t charge the serfs to have to listen to it.
      We never learn much about the 19th C rebellions across Europe, because we had none, just our Industrial stuff, that was not typical.
      But Europe, the EU, The Soviet and the Anarchists as terrorists, Pankhurts too, IRA?…all been done.

        I’ve just listened to the full interview, how patronising is Liz Green?

        I was brought up in Wigan and moved to Burnley a few years ago because of work. In Wigan there are no Mosques, and no ‘no go areas’.

        In Burnley there are plenty of Mosques and plenty of ‘no go areas’. Stoneyholme, Daneshouse and parts of Nelson.

        I challenge any of these BBC fuckwits to walk these areas whilst holding hands, having a beer, displaying the cross of David whilst waving a rainbow flag with your 13yr old daughter.

        Then you’ll know true hatred.

      Usual BBC truffle hunts, well done Katie.

    The proliferation of black man/white women relationships in TV dramas and adverts, apart from being totally unrealistic and annoying to the indigenous viewer, they are also very dangerous for our women folk.

    To a newly arrived low IQ individual sitting in his tax payer funded flat, watching his tax payer funded TV (using his payer funded BBC TV licence) on tax payer funded electricity they are essentially saying to a demographic who already have little respect for women that white women are ‘up for it’

      Well, the adverts are going even further now. They began with concentrating on younger couples in mixed relationships, but now we are seeing more and more images of middle aged and older couples – which couldn’t be further from the truth ! Holidays are particularly prone, showing older ladies with non-white gents relaxing in deck chairs. As if !

      These young idiots in advertising need to do their homework in history. Up until the last 20 years or so, it was a rarity ( even now, outside inner cities) for mixed race couple to be seen out and about. Only ‘certain’ type of white girls went with black men, and ‘decent’ girls would never have entertained the idea, so to see a middle aged/elderly mixed race couple are even more rare because they are the generation who grew up when it wouldn’t have been acceptable.

        Brissels, I hesitate to contradict – but there have been a number of news stories about white, middle-aged, Guardian-reading, female social workers going over to Calais to pick out a young, black stud from those on offer. Of course such women wouldn’t fall into your definition of “decent girls”.

          I spend a lot of time in France and observe white middleclass guardian reading women bringing goodies from the UK and distributing them among the young men who wait in the trees near the port of Quisterham. I wonder what else goes on.

          Many years ago I recall at yoonie the easiest way for an anti colonial student union freedom fighter to get laid was to utter the magic words ‘set my people free’. Middleclass white girls filled with guilt would ease his pain.

    With reference to Mark Rowley and the ‘threat of the far right’ – Have a look at the European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation (ECTR) which apparently has adopted the European Framework for the National Statute for the Promotion of Tolerance. A certain Blair is involved.

    Regarding Media: “The Government shall ensure that public broadcasting (TV and radio) stations will devote a prescribed percentage of their programmes to promoting a climate of tolerance”.

    Apparently ridiculing feminism is to soon become a criminal offense and the draft law has provisions for youngsters that hold the wrong views – “Juveniles convicted of committing crimes listed in paragraph * will be required to undergo a rehabilitation programme designed to instil in them a culture of tolerance”.

    The ECTR is referenced in Wikipedia, as is the Framework bit, (for what it’s worth) and features in the excellent book ‘Travels in Cultural Nihilism’ by Stephen Pax Leonard.

    PS It seems that the bbc have been zealously toeing the line with ref to the media paragraph above.

    Investigative Journalist Jenny Moore was found dead on Monday, after reporting Bill Clinton to the FBI about allegations by a 26-year-old man that as a young boy he was sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton and pimped out at private sex parties attended by other D.C. elites.
    Just four weeks before her death, Moore filed details of the alleged victim’s claims with the Department of Homeland Security, detailing the allegations against Clinton. A week later, she contacted the FBI with identical details about the allegations against Clinton.
    FBI sources report no case has been opened on the evidence supplied by Moore. Homeland Security never contacted Moore to follow up after she shared details with the agency.
    According to interviews, the victim claimed he was sexually assaulted by Clinton on a yacht in New England and knows the identities of several other child victims who were subjected to identical abuses.

    Also its reported that a DEA agent, and a ATF agent are accused of murdering Seth Rich. Seth Rich was said by Wikileaks to have been the person who leaked the DNC emails. A report by a group of former NSA agents provided proof that it was a leak from inside the DNC, not a hack from outside.

    Also, Victor Thorn, who wrote four anti-Clinton books including “Hillary (and Bill): The Murder Volume“, was said to have killed himself with a gun on his 54th birthday, while on top of a mountain near his Pennsylvania home. Thorn made several appearances on “The Russell Scott Show” and told the host, “Russell, if I’m ever found dead, it was murder. I would never kill myself.” The next day, Shawn Lucas, the lead attorney who served the DNC with a lawsuit alleging fraud in the presidential race, died as a result of a combination of drugs, including kratom, cyclobenzaprine, mitragynine and the fentanyl reported in Salisbury.

        As for possible “Fake News”. You could double check by investigating Youtube. It says that Jenny Moore was the Youtube Journalist “TaskForce” a former cop with the Tracy, California Police Department who had been investigating Child Trafficking rings in the Washington DC area and elsewhere. She had a Master’s degree in Psychology. She started about a year ago, helping with “George Webb” Youtube Videos. In the past few months, she produced her own Youtube videos for “Task Force”, where she documented her experiences of working with victims of Sexual Abuse or witnesses to sexual abuse within the military.

    I see the BBC is covering at last the deteriorating security situation in the killing fields of London.
    i suppose at last it is dawning on them that what looks as if it is in a confined area is going to spread until their own streets are affected.
    This is inevitable now.
    It has been clear for a while that we in the shires are not visiting London as we did in previous years.
    I have never taken my grandsons there . I have been forbidden to do so by their parents and every incident makes this prohibition more certain.
    The police have failed. The government has failed. It is their prime duty to safeguard the lives of the citizens. To do whatever it takes.
    There should be no further excuses and no question of leniency .
    If they feel unable to do this then they will have to go .
    There is only a limited time left now before a sort of panic sets in and the parents of young people in London get out any way they can.
    We are seeing a great city implode in front of our eyes .

      Dave
      Let’s face it – London has always had its dangerous bits but now that doesn’t apply . Serious violence ( killings ) can happen at the drop of a black 14 years old boys hat .
      Race plays a part – just look at the nature of the victims and the killers .. I see it in a similar way to paedophile paki/stani Islamic rape Gangs. The State has been afraid to control them for fear of “ offence “ or “ racism “ which will blight promotion prospects – teachers , social workers , coppers – all failing to impose control – and now the result . Al beeb , of course , has aided and abetted
      This liberal poison .

      As for kids in London ? No – I would nt take them into town unless you want plenty of vibrancy , rough sleepers , beggars , intimidating yobs and the majority yapping with a language you don’t recognise . Last time I wrote this here some one wrote back saying I was too pessimistic -.ibthink that was about 50 dead ago …

As the policing plan has not really changed in 30 years, I expect to see more of our constabulary on the return journey. I look forward to reporting my experience the next day.

      No mention in the whole article from the BBC that this is using power and money to try and usurp the democratic and legitimate rights of the people.

      If a multi-millionaire declared they were donating a million pounds to try and prevent a second vote, they’d be all over it like a rash.

    Naturally Nick Robinson had Omarosa Manigault Newman on the Today show to peddle her book on Trump and the White House. Robinson of course began with her description of Trump as racist, bigoted and in mental decline and he pretty much let her rant on about how terrible Trump is. Robinson didn’t forget to mention the supposed tape of Trump saying ‘the N word’ when he was on The Apprentice and BBC news reports the allegations but admits that White House staffers deny ever hearing such a tape. What the BBC forgets to mention is that both Omarosa Manigault Newman’s claimed source who she says played the tape to her and the producer of The Apprentice both say they have not got any such tape and have never heard one like it.

    Omarosa Manigault Newman claimed that the sources were too scared, being intimidated and threatened, to speak about the tape…..hmmmm….then how does she explain her original claim…

    ‘Tonight, on the MSNBC program, Hardball, Omarosa revealed to the general public what she had told me [Lynne Patton, Trump administrator] last December: That former Apprentice producer, Bill Pruitt, was the original source of the “N-word” tape.
    Bill Pruitt is a mutual friend.
    I just spoke to Bill Pruitt tonight before releasing this statement.

    He confirmed to me (before Hardball had even gone off the air) that he does NOT have an audio tape of President Trump using the “N-word” and has NEVER had an audio tape of President Trump using the “N-word.” Period. ‘

    Not only that but the second-hand source that Newman was claiming was her own source for the story also spoke out and denied it…

    ‘Manigault claimed on page 149 of her new book Unhinged, according to Fox News, that Trump 2016 campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson had heard from someone who knew political strategist Frank Luntz that Luntz had heard a tape of Donald Trump using the n-word. ……To be clear, at no time did I participate in a conference call with Katrina Pierson advising me, Jason Miller and Omarosa Manigault-Newman that Frank Luntz had heard President Donald J. Trump use a derogatory racial term – a claim that Luntz himself has also denied.’

    There may well be a tape but so far all those who supposedly have heard it deny its existence..and yet the BBC keeps up the myth.

    Robinson’s interview finished with the thought that Trump was ‘unhinged’. The only people who are unhinged are people like Robinson who peddle this rubbish as news giving us half the facs in order to create an entirely false picture of what is actually happening including the highly amusing spectacle of the US media attacking Trump for calling them the ‘enemy of the people’…the media, that almost to a man has opposed Trump, derided him and painted him in the blackest of terms encouraging, literally, violence against him personally and his supporters, the Left prepared to destroy US democracy, civil harmony and stability in order to force their own chosen candidate into the White House…and yet the BBC is so concerned about the Russians interfering and undermining US democracy….the BBC that has done far more than any Russian hacker to try and undermine Trump and overturn the election result and to encourage violence from the Left and Blacks.

    Funny thing, when Jeremy Hunt was in charge of the failing NHS ‘in crisis due to Tory cuts’ BBC presenters couldn’t stop themselves calling hiim ‘cunt’, an accidental slip of the tongue of course…now that he has been fulminating loudly against Brexit somehow they can get his name right everytime!? Not so keen to give us a correct analysis of his behaviour though, the nefarious scheming that was behind the words..

    Hunt gave us a sensationalist and alarmist picture of a no-deal Brexit which would , he said, be a mistake regreted for generations…he kept it very ambiguous not spelling out who or what or why…..he knew he would get the headlines with this melodramatic spin but he also knew that when the criticisms came flying in he could then backtrack and say he was misunderstood and he didn’t mean what it sounded like he said.

    What he calculates, correctly, is that he gets massive coverage for his first claim and that it is this, not his half-hearted retraction, that will become the ‘truth’ which will be used and repeated endlessly by Remainers and media as ‘fact’….a ‘No-Deal’ would be a disaster for the country, something to be avoided at all costs.

    All part of Project Fear II that is softening us up for May’s surrender to the EU and the ‘deal’ she signs up to that is so bad and so weak and which essentially keeps us in the EU but with worse terms than we have now. We are supposed to be so afraid of ‘No-Deal’ that we will accept anything and be grateful for the lucky escape and the wisdom and strength of May as she battled in Britain’s interest. LOL.

    We had Lord Kerslake on the BBC telling us, referencing Hunt’s comment [see how that works? When the legend becomes ‘fact’ print the legend], that in the event of a no-deal then perhaps Parliament should consider stopping Brexit completely…it’s not too late you know! So democratic.

    ‘”If the Government can negotiate a good deal, then so be it. But if they can’t and we end up in this position, then we have to reopen the question of whether we go forward with Brexit at all. It is not too late to do that.’

    Hmmm…and who said Brexit was not a ‘no-deal’? If anything Brexit is a ‘no-deal’ clean break….that’s exactly what was on the referendum voting paper…stay in or leave the EU…it didn’t say stay in or leave this part or that part of the EU.

    Kerslake goes on, giving the game away completely and admits the real EU mindset…keep on voting until you get the right answer!…

    ‘”But I think that pause would need to include – and I suspect this would be insisted on by the (European) Commission – some re-examination of the decision itself.”‘

    Clean break. Thanks.

      We need a talented agent to disrupt anti-BBC blogs that claim we are biased. You’ll cope with Islamophobia using clever ripostes like, ‘Ah, but what about the crusades?’ You’ll repel accusations about Britain’s ethnic no-go areas with, ‘Ah, but what about the British ghettoes in Torremolinos where they never learn Spanish?’ (Deflection works wonders.)

      It’s easy to discredit their arguments. Just pick them up on being a few hundred out in their statistics on illegal immigration – they’ll look like complete fools.

      Don’t be afraid to deter their by calling them what they are: nazis, xenophobes, knuckle-dragging Little Englanders etc. (A comprehensive list of insults will be supplied.)

      Bonus payments will be offered for discovering participants’ names and addresses. The police will be around to charge them with hate-crimes within hours.

      A media studies degree will be preferred, and some shift-work will be required. You must demonstrate commitment to diversity.

      The post is open to men, women and the undecided (who will get preference, as you will confuse the fascist bastards.)

    ‘“Imam in Austrian mosque calls on youth to establish Islamic State and wage Jihad,” Voice of Europe, August 11, 2018:

    A mobile phone video, taken inside the Viennese Taiseer mosque, shows how imams call on youths to create an Islamic State, Austrian newspaper Krone reports.

    While one imam calls youth to establish an Islamic state as “they have the most important roles in jihad and proselytising”, another preaches against so-called unbelievers.’

      Guest – did anyone listen to this series? I heard 3 of them and at the end I still didn’t have any more of an idea afterwards than I did before. The presenter (Timandra Harkness) seemed more interested in talking and telling the audience about herself – and the humorous quips were far from that . I listened because I thought it might actually be interesting.
      I have come to the conclusion R4 now either sees its audience as dumb f..ks and can’t cope with intelligent programmes..or the producers and presenters are themselves dumf..ks who don’t know much..

    Still on the subject neverthteless: Most thinking people in WesternEurope would probably agree that massive Third World immigration into our countries has not been greatly beneficial and this has taken place without the indigenous citizens being asked whether they would like to fill their countries with hords of such people and without them having given their consent to it. Of course and sadly this has been done deliberately against the wishes of the indigenous people of Europe and in spite of our pleas and demands to stop this insane policy. If as it is being shown nearly everyday that they, most immigrants and in particular those who follow the teachings of Islam appear unable to to adapt to life here and they can’t, then they should not be here. It is nogood saying that those such people that, wish to settle among us should behave themselves, learn our language and abide by our laws, however the Muslim does not want or intend or to adopt to our way of life their ideology forbids it, they put Islam first as it instructs the Quran. Lets ask ourselves as to why would one of the world’s most densely crowded islands, with a naturally growing population and growing work force not suffering from a demograhic time bomb however with desperately over-stretched public services, suffering from road congestion and over crowded public transport, housing crisis , unemplyment still high, why would such a country need immigration at such levels as we have had and which quadruples the rate of population growth-seriously immigration as is must be unsustainable and both detrimental to the interests of many people in Britain and against the wishes of the majority of the people in this nation. BUT still the BBC utters its support often surreptitiously.

    This is why Trump calls them fake: their inability to report on stuff that matters. How many murdered in London this year? Yet they report on an upper middle class woman discussing her career for about twenty minutes.

    She is still on! Yeah, plots for novels are really important stuff. At least she is not a black/ethic women then we would be subjected to nonsense about her ‘experience’ and how we are all horrible racists – so horrible that everyone wants to come and live in our country.

      Key to Bond’s allure is his womanising. It would not work if a female Bond were a massive slut.

      “You’re walking funnily Bond.”

      “Sorry – was up all night getting pounded by Hardon Galore.”

      “You’re fired. That’s disgusting.”

      Being gay is like preferring carrots to peas – an incidental matter of taste which does not define you. We are individuals. The idea that just because you are black, gay or whatever you become part of a ‘community’ and are incapable of independent thought is appalling.

      The ability to act has nothing to do with who you like to have sex with. The SJWs love creating issues where there are none so they get to look compassionate without doing anything. God look at Shakespeare – he was anyone and everyone because he was so brilliant. They say he used to play the ghost of Hamlet’s father. Hamlet’s father was not homosexual whereas Shakespeare clearly was but you can imagine how utterly fantastic he was in the role.

      “Of crown, of queen, of state at once dispatched.”

      And of course the BBC would unperson Shakespeare were he writing now for his ‘jingoistic’ and ‘offensive’ ideas.

They have to think ahead. If Elba is contracted, then he’s down to play JB for the next possibly 3 films, an expensive exercise if he does ‘bomb’ on the first outing. I don’t think they’ll take the risk. Too much money is at stake, and Elba’s reputation (what reputation I hear you ask) could hit the skids.

            I’ve beeb to the theatre enough times this year seeing women playing me – but strangely not visa versa – and black actors playing white roles . If one is unaware of say – a Shakespeare Play and you see this you give up at half time because the thing doesn’t make sense.
            Talking about casting a black actor as Bond is a ‘testing of the waters ‘ and the Bond industry has always been good at building up interest in the brand – it’s the business of ‘show’ as always …. mr Elba will never be better than in The Wire. The number of killings of black kids in that show reminds me of Londonistan …

    On Censorship : Donald J. Trump’s 3 tweets this morning
    Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices.
    Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen.
    They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others…….

    …..Censorship is a very dangerous thing & absolutely impossible to police.
    If you are weeding out Fake News, there is nothing so Fake as CNN & MSNBC,
    & yet I do not ask that their sick behavior be removed.
    I get used to it and watch with a grain of salt, or don’t watch at all..

    ….Too many voices are being destroyed, some good & some bad, and that cannot be allowed to happen.
    Who is making the choices, because I can already tell you that too many mistakes are being made.
    Let everybody participate, good & bad, and we will all just have to figure it out!

      All MSM with \\Trump CLAIMS/ALLEGES social media ‘discriminating’ against right-wing voices//

      Well Trump in his rambunctious way says they are “totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices”

      I would say he means “Of the voices that are censored by the social media companies, pretty much all are to the Right and none to the Left”

      How OrwellTube works :this article explains
      Left : Your work is generally promoted
      http://thefederalist.com/2018/08/17/screenshots-show-google-shadowbans-conservative-pro-trump-content/
      Righties : Your work is generally NOT promoted
      .. It is demonitised
      .. It is RESTRICTED so not available to under 18’s or public wifi like libraries
      .. It is HIDDEN from searches, by creating fake accounts in your name, which then show up higher in searches than your own
      “These accounts are just automatically generated” say OrwellTube
      … You maybe banned off Youtube
      … Or instead your Youtube channel is no longer your own as Stossel said “Google is adding its own opinion to my Youtube video!”
      by putting a banner along the bottom.
      (This is beng piloted for US viewers only)

      The Stossel video which says that the maths of the Paris CO2 reduction agreement
      @YouTube has added a disclaimer to my global warming video, saying: “evidence show[s] that the climate system is warming.”
      I say that in my video, too. But does YouTube really need to inject its opinion? Is there no room for nuance?

        ..Really Islam is an ideology is it OK to refuse to cover them ?

        Will religious videos be interrupted by a disclaimer banner saying “there probably isn’t a god”

    Man seen attacking Burka clad woman in an Islamophobic attack ….

    … MP Boris Johnson arrested quicker than Tommy Robinson to ease British Islamic tensions …

    … later it was determined that the Burka clad woman was a postbox.

      Sorry, not the BBC but a Boris follow on.

      https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/boris-johnsons-facebook-page-mobbed-by-racists-after-burqa-furore-f5jp2k77h

      What a weird publication the Sunday Times has become. The front page headline today reads: ‘Racists flock to Boris on Facebook’
      The article is accompanied by a(nother) photograph obviously intended to make Johnson look ridiculous. To sum up, apparently there are some nasty ‘Islamophobes’ ‘ranting’ on Boris’s facebook pages and the Sunday Times believes this to be the most important item of world news to bring to its readers today. I’m afraid it’s that old, lazy and discredited conflation of racism and ‘Islamphobia’ yet again. It seems to me that today’s front page will taint the reputation of the newspaper rather more than it will the reputation of Johnson.

      At least, although tucked away on the inside back page, succinctly phrased as usual, the headline of Jeremy Clarkson’s column reads: ‘Argue with today’s youth and they’ll call you a racist and start blubbing’

      Never a truer word from Jeremy and high time the ‘youf’ reporters at the Sunday Times stopped blubbing at their facebook posts, went out into the real world and did some … what shall we call it … reporting?

    Worth a repeat …

    Political language, which, according to Orwell, “is designed to make lies sound truthful (Divorce) and murder respectable (Grooming), and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. (Divorce Bill)”
