Start the Week Open Thread 3 September 2018

Tough times for the Far Left BBC. Its favourite political party is busy getting a civil war going and the party it hates is busily trying to stop conservatives joining the Tory Party. So as Parliament returns we can expect the BBC  to be in full bias mode – 12 days later the MPs go on their holidays again for the last Conference Season before we leave their EU.

On September 9 Sweden has a general election where the single anti immigration party is predicted to get 20% of the vote . Apparently the swedes have got fed up with vibrant handgenade attacks which are fashionable there at the moment and no doubt will feature in Britain sometime soon . The far left BBC will be on hand to tell us how thick and ‘Far Right’   20% of the population is…..

        It’s fair to say that due to my opinion of Twitter as being a drain hole which sucked my valuable time on earth away looking at nothing I’m not the most proactive of Twitter users. However I do follow a couple of people and regularly follow links posted here by my fellow forum members.
        And in all my experience of the hashtag CommentsCouldBeGoingBetter, I’ve never seen a Tweet receive such an almighty kicking as this one. Correction, maybe the earlier Tweet rather than the later retweet/s beat it by a hairs breadth. Stirring stuff 🙂

    The language is key – everything the Left finds unacceptable is Far Right . Therefore , for me , the BBC , Guardian and the like become Far ( or hard ) Left .

    I know it’s polarisation but as some say – they started it and at the moment the voice of the Far Left , through the MSM , is far louder than ours . – as President Trump continues to explain .

      Too right. They did start it and can’t take any reaction without whining and smearing anyone who stands up to them as far right.
      What is going on in Germany was completely predictable.
      It will happen all over Europe and now cannot be avoided.
      If those in charge had acted prudently over the last 30 years then perhaps it could have been different .
      By marginalising moderate conservative voices the progressives have ensured their eventual removal from power.
      I do hope the swinging pendulum does not go too far the other way

      You are right about the language. I have often thought about how symbols have been hijacked and turned into something else as well. Hitler’s use of the swastika is a great example. Imagine the outcry if the symbol was brought back to it’s original peaceful Hindu and Buddhist meanings in the west. Harmony, prosperity, good luck and all being good and well, for example. It would freak everyone and neutralise the real Nazi use. Wishful thinking, I know.

      So the peaceful protest was brought to a halt by the Antifa people lying on the ground in their way. That’s sad but on the other hand it is proof the protesters were not far right.
      Can you imagine any self-respecting Nazi accepting that? Nope there would have been a bootfest.
      Anyway Antifa are such cowards they would never have lain there if they thought for one moment the crowd was really far right.

      What really troubles me is that the lying British media will never tell the truth on such issues.

      Surprisingly (or not) Antifa have moral support from senior German cabinet ministers, like the lefty, Jochen Maas. Also from President Steinmeyer. Both are socialist SPD.
      What about the CDU? Goes without saying that Merkel will be a wee bit partial to Antifa, if they do anything to further her own cause, which is simply to stay in power. Also, as Germany divides into two camps, the government is constantly talking about a ‘battle against the Right’, and is actually trying hard to push everyone into the anti-AfD camp. (The AfD are the only party who may spoil it for the two big parties of the ‘grand coalition’, whose ministers have their claws solidly into the big salaries, big residences, the big cars and other perks. The AfD are equal to the SPD in the polls!)
      This strategy, needless to say, has the enthusiastic support of the MSM, who have detected mileage/sales by conjuring up the past and ascribing its excesses to the AfD and anyone else who opposes Merkel. The latter, as usual, has only to stay out of things as much as possible, then reap the benefits when the time comes, as she sees it. A strategy that has worked well for many years.

      Personally, I hope her time comes soon.

          While we’re on the subject, Heiko is worth a little study, if you’re interested in Germany. I think his previous portfolio was Justice, and he was very keen on prosecuting ‘rightists’. For whatever excuse/pretext could be found…
          He is certain to apply a similar bias in his present portfolio, and I have wondered whether we can expect some strong statement on Brexit from him soon…

    Davylars. ….. apropos your earlier comment re the Fake or Fortune programme on the painting of Dido Elizabeth Belle. The film “Belle” (2013) of the subject matter is worth viewing.

    • davylars says:

      Briss. I do take your point on board and do stand partially corrected. But….
      The film is a work of historical fiction, inspired by a painting and the evidence that Dido was brought up at Kenwood House. The relative lack of details about Dido Elizabeth Belle allowed screenwriter Misan Sagay considerable artistic licence in framing the young woman’s story, within the broader historical context of the slave economy and the abolition movement.
      Lord Mansfield ruled on a related matter of the status of slaves in England in his capacity as Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales. When called on in 1772 to judge Somerset v Stewart, the case of an escaped slave whose owner wanted to send him back to the West Indies for sale, he decreed:
      They hitch the fragments known about Belle onto the story of the massacre on the Zong slave ship.. there was no connection.
      Point being, once again the BBC inflate a story to fool the masses to suit their agenda..

      What a disgusting example of out and out fakery.

      That’s like saying ‘”No matter what, I will remain strong and resolute to not let down the British people in my full and complete capitulation to the EU. I have the interests of the public at heart and I will not, under any circumstances, let down or disrespect the instruction given to me by the majority of those that voted”.

      One gets the impression that she thinks that if you wrap the lie up in a boisterous rallying cry, people won’t notice the pearl of deceit and betrayal sitting right at the heart of your statement.

      Dystopian,
      It isn’t just the number of Muslims who have committed rape , it is also the number of girls that each of these rapists has abused. I suspect that most white rapists committ far fewer individual assaults than the mMuslim members of rape gangs who repeatedly rape the same girls over a period of weeks, months even years. So whenever you hear that there are more white convicted rapists than Muslims remember that doesn’t mean that that Muslims have committed fewer rapes despite , at least for the present , Muslims being a fraction of the population as a whole.

      They were “serious” about trying to prevent FGM in Bristol when headteachers of a primary school there, asked a mother into the office when she asked permission to take her daughter off school to visit Israel. They informed her that she was taking her to a country that practises FGM and did she know of the danger. Still over a year later trying to get the Home office document ammended as it is a totally false allegation.

    Do as I say, not as I do
    Composed serious faces on the sofa and discrete intake of breath, careful with the diction now, revealing no obvious emotion… and off we go with the headline: the UN telling Europe to basically take more third world migrants because they are literally dying to get here.

    Meanwhile, our BBC sofa-dwellers this morning seem nonplussed that when questioned 80% of people reckon organ donation is a good idea but then they don’t have the conversation with their relatives or do the requisite paperwork. Now I’m not going to go into the question of whether it is ethical for the State to impose implied consent – the BBC, by the way, clearly have no moral concern that the State might own our bodies but since their bread and butter – the licence fee – is operated very much on a poll tax implied consent basis I guess they wouldn’t, would they? What I do find intriguing and would like to explore is the element of virtue signalling and quiet conservatism revealed in this mismatch of donation statistics. These ideas the left liberal BBC attitude just cannot fathom. But then there’s never a public spending project the BBC don’t like, never a progressive tax raising notion too far – naturally all approved in sharp contrast with Beeboids own personal tax affairs. Yeah, of course people SAY they believe in this or that progressive sacred cow. But when the moment for some real personal cost or commitment comes (or back to the subject of organ donation as our cuddly sofa bods so nicely put it ‘when the rubber hits the road’) mmmm, not so much.

      Poor John. He, along with the BBC, think that if they are being criticised by the Far Right and the moderate Left (only line that exists for the BBC), they must be right.

      It hasn’t sunk in that they are wrong on all counts. Its just that a third rate degree in a third rate subject, does not make BBC journos expert on Global Warming – a contrived so called discipline with the primary political aim to extend global taxation, beyond the control of government that is accountable to an electorate.

      Well that last and most important goal is blown with the election of Pres Trump. Soon to follow are Australia and NZ. Hypocrites like India and China were never in the scam in the first place. That leaves the EU. With Britain pulling out, the EU, that is Germany will be required to fill the quota. Some hope.

      Their object is not just to scupper Theresa May’s botched Chequers Deal, but to break Brexit all together and keep Britain securely locked behind EU bars.”

        It’s certainly true that most BBC employees are Leftist, that many are Labour Party members and supporters, and no doubt some of them really believe that they are campaigning for the Labour Party and worse. But ultimately, the BBC is the State broadcaster The constant themes of globalism, migration, sexual perversion, miscegenation, the EU, Russophobia, Islamification, support for the Royal family, global warming and the promotion of trivia to occupy the minds of the masses, are all core Establishment values. The BBC, like the main political parties themselves, are no more than frontmen. It just so happens that for many of its staff, their hobbies and their employment happen to be one and the same thing.

    Lined up against the Good is now ALL the press whose continual descriptions of them such as, “neo-nazi”, ‘Far-right’, ‘Racists’ et al. has lost any currency value. You simply can’t hear these descriptions being made by the World’s press without feeling absolute contempt for them when, simultaneously, the photographs pan the crowds and we see ordinary people of all ages.

    The upskirting bill is to be debated this week in the house of expenses claims . The fragrant aristocratic Stella Creasy is to introduce an amendment making mysogeny part of the criminal law by making it an aggravating factor in sentencing.

    I think this is the first step before making mysogeny a criminal offence it itself. There doesn’t seem to be much coverage by the far left BBC – perhaps they are still preoccupied with watching a foreign singer and dead American politician being put in the ground .

    I have to admit I have a ‘thing ‘ for Stella – particularly when she does her ‘angry’ act and gets all het up. I think she followed the style of her big sista- the wife of ed balls who does a really good ‘trust me I’m a politician ‘act with arched eyebrows

    The debate is Wednesday I think and will be worth the popcorn . It’s a shame the like of Alan Clarke is not still about to stir the pot on this one . But dame Anna Soubry should be worth a blub .

    I wonder what position the SNP will take on upskirtting – upkilting as I’m sure they would want it called …the horror…..it’s appropriate that the thing started as a private members’ bill .

      Clearly making misogyny a crime is insane. But given we live in an Asylum run by lunatics anyway, surely if you make misogyny a crime you must by extension make misandry one too. I guess you could get around this by applying the current judicial principle of inequality before the law, which Blair’s government introduced implicitly with the Hate Crime laws in the mid 2000s. Yes why not. At least there’s a consistency there.

        Cathy Newman says she was sexually harassed at elite school.
        Newman was 16 and had just arrived at Charterhouse, an independent day and boarding school in Surrey, when, she said, a boy unzipped his flies and made her touch his penis with her hand.

        “I didn’t talk to anyone about it [for years],” she said.

        The natural ultimate endpoint in this game is for a segregated all female/female only channel. And, hopefully, the BBC might possibly let their male licence payers have their channel too?

        Gosh, where do they get their ideas? I thought the aim of feminism was to breakdown gender segregation? I suppose we are now so close to desegration – of all male clubs, sports, etc – we can now start to put segration back again.

      A kinder gentler form of politics (or removing the word gent should that be ladier?)

      I recall once with time on my hands I flicked on the BBC Parliament Channel and caught a debate from Holyrood.

      Big mistake. At first distracted by the godawful architecture soon I noticed it was La Sturgeon taking First Minister’s questions.

      For a moment I thought I’d stumbled on some new Peter Jackson production featuring a Tolkienesque Queen of the Gnomes holding court.

      As female Tory and then Labour spokeswimmin began bitterly battling it out with Braveheart Jimmy Krankie (no doubt on the minutiae of how and where to spend all that English tax payer cash they so love) it took on the character of Macbeth’s ancient witches exchanging curses in some over-priced over-well-lit Ikea warehouse.

      The concept if the nickname clearly escapes this fool. There are worse names than Billycan, which I assume is the point of changing it to Billy.

        And the spelling of Tchaikovsky varies from country to country. The exact transliteration into Roman script has never been agreed.

        Amongst dozens of variations the German version is Tschaikowski, in Italian it is Ciajkovskij etc. Apparently the original name is Polish and spelt Czajkowski. There was a footballer for Yugoslavia many years ago whose name was Čajkovski, another variant.

        So the problems of how to pronouce a foreign name is not as difficult as to how to spell names from languages with different alphabets. Think how many spellings of Mohammed there are at the top of the list of children’s names in this country. All from different languages so all transliterated differently. And do you pronounce Ahmed the same as Achmed with a big throat clearing? Who knows and why does this clown make it a big issue?!

    The most predictable BBC headline ever

    The well-upholstered Simon McCoy on the BBC News Channel is attempting to drum it into our heads that it was the hottest summer ever!!!

    Chucking dubious superlatives around like Jackson Pollock threw paint – with equally confusing results – the only stat that seemed to stick was a record temperature in June at… wait for it… Heathrow Airport of all places.

    No doubt they stuck their thermometer up a Jumbo Jet’s jacksie.

    It does tend to get warm thereabouts.

    Some global warming alarmist pontificates that we must prepare ourselves.

    Our Simon recalls the Beast from the East. Brrrrrrrr! Cold, right? You guessed it – that was caused by global warming too. Heads they win/tails you lose.

        taffman, I’m sure, as you say, there are many more monitoring locations now than in 1910, and as AISI said above about Heathrow, there were hardly any flying machines in 1910 let alone a plethora of Jumbos to measure the engines heat.

        My thinking is that the climate may be warming, for instance the glaciers in Europe have reduced significantly recently – although it could be partly caused by too many people walking on them. The planet’s climate has always been in flux, so man being here has probably changed nothing or at most very, very little.

        The climate change theorists clearly don’t believe their own stories about the climate warming due to jets flying all over the world, because they regualarly meet in the most obscure places which can only be reached quickly enough by flying in jets from all over the world. And then repeating a few months later in some other obscure part of the world.

        The conman, Al Gore, flies all over the planet regularly, even sometimes by chartering aircraft himself. If he believed in his own fairy stories then he would definitely only fly when he has no choice.

        If Al Gore doesn’t believe in man-made climate change why should we?

    I used to love the World Service programmes on through the night on radio 4. Now they are so SJW it is unbearable. Around 3am there was a programme about ‘women in computing.’ It’s fine for women to discuss computing or whatever as long as the main thing is the subject itself, not just blurting out slogans like ‘role models’ and ‘equality’ for the billionth time – it is akin to Tourette’s. It is so boring and often shades into outright moaning and I just do not want to listen to that.

    They clearly have so many highly paid people with nothing to do at the BBC that someone thought it a good idea to ruin radio 4 and the World Service, along with so much else. It is such a tragedy that they have alienated loyal listeners like me, my mum and countless others. It is a crime far worse than any of this phantom ‘hate crime’, ‘cultural appropriation’ and countless other invented forms of oppression they bang on about.

    The BBC’s very dishonest coverage of Brexit continues apace as they tell us Barnier never made such a powerfully negative statement about the Chequers stitch up before as he has in the last day or so.

    Did they miss this from August 3rd?…

    Theresa May’s Chequers plan poses a threat to the EU, says Michel Barnier in incendiary open letter aimed at the Prime Minister and her cabinet

    or even this from a week ago?…

    Barnier threatened to BOYCOTT Brexit talks if May insisted on basing the deal on her Chequers plan

    Might indicate he was not happy in the slightest about Chequers.

    The BBC spent most of today talking about Boris and only belatedly seemed to notice Barnier had said something despite it being in the Telegraph over night.

    Amused to hear the Remoaners getting away with the claim that Boris should be quiet because if he wanted a different deal he should have done something about it. Hmmm…well he spent a long time putting up suggestions and the Remoaners and the BBC tried their hardest to shout him down telling him he’s the foreign secretary and has nothing to do with Brexit and that he’s undermining May. Now it’s all his responsbility and why doesn’t he have a plan?

    Well there is a plan…do what the voters want…take us out of the single market, customs union, freedom of travel and ECJ jurisdiction and negotiate proper trade deals that are in both of our interests.

    It’s a plan that could have and should have been implemented but the Remoaners set out to sabotage the British negotiating position in order to block Brexit…their hope was that with such an obviously bad deal, a Brexit so soft that it didn’t exist, nobody would accept that and would demand a second vote…a vote that would include the option of staying in the EU.

    This is indeed what they have with May’s completely unacceptable Chequers plan, unacceptable to all sides, one so bad that Davis admits it would be better to still be in the EU than accept this….so May’s plan has worked….it’s total surrender to the EU or a no deal…and Parliament won’t vote for a no deal….so what’s left? Stay in the EU or accept this abysmal deal May has cobbled together.

    You still have to have the suspicion that a deal has already been worked out and this is so much showbiz for the punters. It’s the classic tactic of telling us that things will be terrible so that when they suddenly appear with a deal that isn’t quite as bad we accept it ‘with relief’.

    Await that Chamberlain moment when May appears with her white flag proclaiming a famous deal…..

    So Boris has no plan?

    Remember this from almost exactly one year ago published in the Telegraph but also on Facebook here?

    My vision for a bold, thriving Britain enabled by Brexit

    ‘ The result was decisive. There is simply no way – or no good way – of being 52 per cent out and 48 per cent in.

    Before the referendum we all agreed on what leaving the EU logically must entail: leaving the customs union and the single market, leaving the penumbra of the ECJ; taking back control of borders, cash, laws.

    That is the programme that Theresa May set out with such clarity in her speech on Jan 17 at Lancaster House, and that is what she and her government will deliver.’

    He goes on to lay out in relative detail what he expects Britain to be able to do once free of the EU shackles. If it’s not a plan I don’t know what is.

    Funny how the BBC forgets that powerful missive in the Telegraph when they spent so much time attacking Boris at the time for having written it….funny how the BBC has forgotten how May has betrayed her own plans trumpeted so loudly back then…was she lying?….

    ‘Not partial membership of the European Union, associate membership of the European Union, or anything that leaves us half-in, half-out. We do not seek to adopt a model already enjoyed by other countries. We do not seek to hold on to bits of membership as we leave.

    No, the United Kingdom is leaving the European Union. And my job is to get the right deal for Britain as we do.

    I want to be clear. What I am proposing cannot mean membership of the single market….[staying in it] would to all intents and purposes mean not leaving the EU at all.’

      I believe that Bill Cash, David Davis, Jacob Rees-Mogg, Gerald Batten and even Lord Owen have issued extensive Brexit Plans. But Theresa May only talks to Remain supporting Civil Servants. So we should expect to have a very expensive and bureaucratic fake Brexit Plan, with Theresa May waving an amended “White Paper” Flag.

      Fake problems have been manufactured by Theresa May and her Civil servants. For instance, the EU has withdrawn the technology plans for the Irish border from its website. The head of the Irish border controls has been told not to mention the technology solutions. The head of the Swiss border controls was snubbed by the British government while he visited Britain. And Boris has mentioned the issue was taboo amongst his civil servants.

      This head in the sand attitude has also been mentioned by the Democratic Unionist, Nigel Dodds, saying that the Irish border is being used to thwart Brexit.

    BBC News had a piece on the budget woes of Somerset & other counties. The Somerset politician moans that they have cut all they can & that they cannot increase the council tax as they are capped.
    Like all such bleeding heart reports by the BBC no mention is made of the large percentage increases in tax allowed by the government over the past 2 years. My council tax payments are over 10% more than 2 years ago. Why does the BBC allow politicians to depict budget saving]s as a one off finite process?

      While local authorities have had central government grants cut significantly, as you say Council tax has gone up and, across the public sector as a whole, the oft repeated cry of ‘austerity’ is a myth, much promoted by the BBC.
      Public expenditure has continued to rise and borrowing to balloon in consequence until very recently. GDP fell by 6 per cent due to the 2008 crash so the real hit was taken by the private not the public sector.

    It is endlessly fascinating to observe the machinations of the MSM. In Germany, ‘Die Welt’ has had something resembling a balance when it comes to reports and comments on the AfD.
    All gone today: a flurry of anti-AfD articles. So far, 4000 + readers who have responded are 80% in disagreement with a survey statement that the security services should place the AfD under investigation. (An eventual ban wouldn’t surprise me.) The establishment is tightening things up, but the little people beg to differ. Sounds familiar.

      Further to the above: power politics is always the same: the security apparatus in the Federal states of Lower Saxony and Bremen are investigating the youth wings of the AfD.
      1) The ‘Prime Ministers’ of these Federal States are SPD (socialist).
      2) Nationally, the AfD have overtaken the SPD (18% over 17%) in the polls.
      3) 1) & 2) tell us all we need to know about WHY the anti-AfD hysteria is afoot in Germany. Oh yes, and one other little thing:
      4) nationally, the SPD in coalition with the CDU, keep Comrade Merkel afloat. Quite a BIG thing, actually. If the SPD sinks, guess what?
      Now we know why the mainstream establishment in Germany will be looking to find lotsa ‘neonazies’ under the bed. In this Merkel will be extremely active, but largely behind the scenes.
      Footnote: 5) An election is coming up in the crucial Federal State of Bavaria in October. The CSU -Bavarian sister party of Merkel’s CDU – would LOVE to see the AfD discredited/banned, they could be a real threat.

          I flew in to Manchester to Düsseldorf this morning on Eurowings. Arriving at carousel 2 to pick up my luggage, I noticed across over on carousel 1 a sea of Burkas, Niqabs and flowing gowns…clearly a flight in from Pakistan. They were loading up trolleys with mounds of luggage, much of it wrapped in polystyrene – no idea what that was about. But what was stunning was the response of a bunch of around 10 young germans who arrived a few minutes after me – I estimate they were 18-21 years olds – and their reaction to what they saw. The expression on their faces was one of sheer contempt and disbelief…jokes about off-loading packages with chemicals for building bombs etc abounded among the group and other jokes, that no group of english kids would dare make. The look on their faces though was something to behold. Just as Alice Weidel talks about the Immigrants with contempt and blatant disrespect, these germans were clearly not impressed by what they saw.
          it was encouraging, because after what has been going on over in Chemnitz it is clear the Germans are waking up and they are not happy about the way the MSM and their government are maligning decent, tax-paying, honest Germans and labelling them as ‘far-right’.

            There are hopeful signs that at last Europe, or rather the ordinary Europeans, are realising that their futures are being sold down the river by the whole liberal left political establishment.The migration and the Islamification that it brings with it is the defining issue of our time.
            But is it already too late? If you stop the migration right now the projection of the current demographics for three generations is that the Muslim % of the population will be as high as 20% in Western Europe and higher than that in the UK , Sweden and France. Can our society continue in its current form with such a high proportion of Muslims ? very doubtful I think.
            So we are already at a point where immediately stopping the migration is unlikely to be sufficient to preserve the Western way of life. Given that the liberal left politicians are still advocating open borders or at least still welcoming the invaders the situation is rapidly worsening.
            Repatriation and ending all family reunions for Muslims are the obvious next steps but I am unsure that the ordinary folk of Europe who oppose continued migration are ready to support these measures, which will certainly be unpleasant to implement. Particularly when the MSM will blow it all up into something like the holocaust, with heart wrenching stories galore.
            The other factor is to increase the birth rate of Europeans by making it financially and socially beneficial to have children. I believe that this is already happening in Poland.
            But the first requirement is to vote out of power the liberal left elite who have put Europe in such a dangerous position. Although great progress has been made in the Visegrad group, , Slovenia , Austria and Italy, there is a long way to in Sweden, Germany, France and of course the UK. The Swedish election will be interesting but even if the Swedish Democrats get 25% plus of the vote it will at least another four years before they can take power. It’s the same in Germany and France. In the UK we have no political party of any significance which opposes migration. After Brexit things may actually get worse as the prominent Brexiteers all want increased trade and ties with non European countries and the influence in the UK of the growing anti migration anti Islamification movement in Europe will be diminished. What a mess!

              Good post, Doublethinker. Your conclusion: ‘After Brexit things may actually get worse…’ I think you’ve spotted a possible downside of Brexit, which could come to haunt us. I first began to think hard about that when there was a news item a year or so ago, that vanished quickly: a group of Tory MPs wanted to celebrate ‘new ties’ by giving Nigeria, India etc fast-track visas to the UK. As you say, no significant party in the UK opposes migration. Tony loved it. May talks one thing but does another.
              Could we find ourselves suddenly with the worst of both worlds, as the opportunities for new trade links brings with it demands for the free movement of people ‘from and to the Commonwealth’ and politicians conceded that this is the ‘moral’ thing to do?
              Overnight, hundreds of millions of people have full access to the UK?
              I’ve been a solid Brexiteer, because I think Democracy won’t work in a European superstate. But sometimes, I do wonder…

                Yes I too have moved from rock solid Leaver to a ‘not so sure ‘ for exactly the same reasons. Also during the past two years we have seen growing opposition to the migration from within the EU. It is likely that this opposition will grow and grow despite what the liberal elite are doing to suppress it. I think that because we have no significant political anti migration party , despite the brave efforts of a few, our salvation may well come from the growing anti migration movement within the EU. In that case Leaving may not be the best long term strategic move but for very different reasons to those of liberal elite Remainiacs.

This is due to several different reasons but one critical reason is that their voting system is based on proportional representation and allows parties like the AfD a realistic path to power. In the UK there is no equivalent party that has the remotest path to power over the next 20 years. It is simply too late to change things now.

I would also wish to see the picture of expressions on their faces when the muslims come for the homosexuals and lesbians and all the other Heinz 57 varieties we are now told we have to live alongside. Then, it will be no use bleating: “years ago we lined up when you arrived displaying our placards which said, ‘Refugees Welcome’”. Those were the heady days! when every good muslim went overboard (forgive the expression!) to maximise the approved effect of taquiyya (’religion of peace’ nonsense). Ah! those were the days. The days when something could have been done but alas, our elite were so sold on the concept of Globalism that they ignored the patent anger of the population and in typical British fashion to ‘gold plate’ everything, earnestly forged on with the instructions passed down from the UN/NWO/Soros.

These words were first spoken by a Rgeinald McKenna, Chancellor of the Exchequer during the period 1915-16. The control has always been in the hands of the Bankers througout Europe & USA-it was a shock to the Bankers when the UK voted to Leave the European Union, it threw them into turmoil that quickly brought their gansters into play to try and dismangle the Leave Vote.

        Fact 1. The biggest road transport cause of particulates is….wait for it……..brake and tyre wear. Question- do electric cars have tyres and brakes?
        Fact 2. Only a quarter of air pollution is caused by transport (and that includes trains and ships) . Another quarter is industry, another quarter is energy production. How will electric cars reduce this? Arguably they will increase it, otherwise where does the electric in electric cars come from.

      Well ones’s perception might depend on where one lived, it might also depend on how much TV and which channel one watched, i.e. a BBC News watcher might conclude that the UK population is 99% Asian women while an ITV advert watcher would know that most families are black and those that aren’t are black dad/white mum!

      It is rather disengenous of a broadcaster to mock the general population when that very same broadcaster has as its mission to “To enrich people’s lives with programmes and services that inform, educate and entertain.” If the public’s perception is wrong then the broadcasters share some responsibility.

        The main reason for Brexit? – Multiculturalism and uncontrolled immigration.

        Have you not noticed that since the government and media propaganda failed to brainwash the British public in voting “Remain”, both have stepped up their propaganda by the disproportionate the amount of ethnics appearing in the films, media, and even advertisements.

        Its all to normalising the idea that mass uncontrolled immigration is good for our country.

        It will fail because we, the public of Great Britain are wiser than they think.
        Their propaganda is achieving the opposite.
