Start the Week Open Thread 10 September 2018

its 200 days to our WTO Brexit. So the Far Left BBC will go all out to subvert the democratic vote . Meanwhile the Swedes have shown that they do not approve of their politicians destroying their own country – a liberal poison which spread across the West unchecked up until our Brexit vote .

    Shortly after I started monitoring anti-Brexit headlines on the BBC news webpage, they suddenly seemed to dry up. At least when I looked, as I know there have been some stories which weren’t on the page when I checked, but possibly were at some point. Anyway, there have, over the past couple of days, been a couple of big ones. As if the BBC couldn’t hold the enormous turd in any longer.

    To be fair, you’d expect them to report Mark Carney, but I’m bound to wonder if pro Brexit groups ever issue positive reports. Is it entirely fair to blame only the BBC for the negative headlines?

      So Boris Karloff lookalike Carney gains another 2 years of trouble-free taxpayer funded income, despite putting the UK taxpayer very low indeed in his list of priorities.
      And within hours the clown issues yet another absurd and negative prediction. You might even think Hammond put him up to it, except for Cabinet Ministers being beyond such underhand tactics.

    There must an official term for the typical Al Beeb manoeuvre where you get in a guest under false pretensions for a quick quote on an anodyne subject but ask a question at the end of the interview on a completely different uncomfortable issue.

    I have two Radio 4 Toady examples to share;

    The first has the Mishaal al Hussain asking a question she did not really want to ask and was happy when the hapless man of God dribbled out a feeble excuse why he could not answer…’more time for the weather’, hilarious!!
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/play/b0bgw32y

    starts at 54m and the ‘while you are with us’ question at 56m .21s

    The other has an American Red Cross bloke not falling for the obvious BBC fishing trip, searching for a negative Trump soundbite …. at 1hr 10m 45s..

      Ha ha- yes it’s the familiar ‘ before we go’ ‘just Before we finish’
      ‘Let me just ask you ‘

      They were doing a good one the other day asking each red Tory minister whether they’d serve in a Boris cabinet in order to get the ‘no’ to do him down …. pretty pee poor and stale …

      Here’s the first from the Full Fact below:

      https://fullfact.org/news/bbc-question-time-banbury/

      “The rarely-seen sixth question was “Serena Williams: was the umpire sexist, or was she being hysterical?” Faiza Shaheen said that women (particularly women of colour) often face being treated differently; Julia Hartley-Brewer said that Williams was a “rude bully” and a “sore loser”.

      None of the men were allowed to answer because at that point the show finished.”

    No news from France according to BBC website. The Times tells me
    Man shouts ‘Allahu akbar’ as he drives into French crowd
    A motorist injured two people when he drove into a crowd shouting “Allahu akbar” in the southern French city of Nîmes in the early hours of this morning.

    Only during the Bush presidency did I really take notice of politics in the US. What with what’s available as alternative news sources on YouTube there is no excuse not to follow it as now, with Pres. Trump, it seems so much more is inextricably linked internationally. There are close similarities in some respects e.g. being invaded by foreign undesirables and the state of so-called, ‘Higher (Marxist) Education’. Indeed Pres. Trump (long may he reign!) may well be the saviour of the Western World when historians do their bit decades on.
    Over the past six months or so I confess to becoming increasingly alarmed at what the ‘alt’ news is broadcasting. I think it is totally justified to think that there could be a civil war breaking out in the US. A good summary –

    Not one negative reply………

    The Electoral Commission has been found wanting having given wrong advice to the Leave campaigns…however look how the BBC spins this massive hit for the Remainers….

    ‘The Electoral Commission let Vote Leave break EU referendum spending laws because the watchdog misinterpreted them, the High Court has ruled.’

    What???? ‘Let Vote Leave break the spending laws’

    No…no..no…they gave Vote Leave the wrong advice and Vote Leave acted on that advice despite querying it at the time.

    More on Guido…

    ‘The High Court’s judgement describes the Electoral Commission as “unconstructive”, “arbitrary” and lacking “any rational basis” for its actions. They have ruled that the Electoral Commission itself does not understand electoral law. How can the Electoral Commission possibly be fit for purpose if it does not even understand electoral law itself?’

    Looking at the EC’s judgement on Vote Leave and Darren Grimes you always knew they were going to be kicked up the backside for very sloppy, biased work that was easily torn apart.

      He’s on QT a lot, isn’t he?

      FACTCHECK
      BBC Question Time is back…
      …And we’re doing things a little differently this time. We know you’re busy people, so we’ll be condensing everything that happened in each episode into one short roundup.

      If some of the claims require more work or a longer explanation, we’ll write about them separately as well. But our aim is to give you as much information as quickly as possible.

      It’s a new idea in its early stages, and we’d love to hear what you think about it. Please send over your feedback to [email protected].

      maybe ask them how many times he has been right?

    On 9/11 a couple of days ago a man walked into 2 banks in Hull and tried to set fire to them . He was arrested and has been charged .

    According to The Hull Daily Mail he is a 24 year old Syrian asylum seeker called Ahmed Mohammed .

    Now I know Hull doesn’t matter because it’s not in Londonistan but where is the coverage of this – I was only interested because it came on the anniversary of the day Islamic terrorists – mainly Saudi killed 4000 westerners for their evil and perverted religion

      Wow, that passed me by. I’m guessing that’s what the MSM wanted. Thanks Fedup. I googled it – compare and contrast the Hull Daily Mail article
      https://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/news/hull-east-yorkshire-news/man-accused-hull-bank-attacks-2001038
      Refers to him as a ‘a Syrian national seeking asylum in the UK’ (has he arrived via the Channel? illegally?), gives much more detail including what he said in court (through an interpreter) – ‘While the hearing was underway, Mr Mohammed, wearing a grey jumper and joggers, shouted out in Kurdish in the court. His interpreter translated the words, telling the court Mr Mohammed had said: “My issue is not going to stop, I will continue. My life in prison is going to be in danger.”

      with the BBCs, found on the regional page
      https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-humber-45508519
      Refers to ‘Syrian national’

      So, can we have some input from the luvvies, Dubs etc, on how this makes the UK public safe, after allowing migrants to stay and claim asylum? Can we have an assurance that he was not one of the bearded child migrants allowed in from Calais?

    The BBC didn’t report the Dalai Lama’s recent advice to Europe, that Europe was for Europeans and that asylum seekers should return home when possible to rebuild their country and society…it has immediately reported that the Dalai Lama is meeting victims abused by Buddhist teachers…have any Muslim leaders visited the victims of Muslim abusers in the UK and apologised?

  10. Beltane says:

    The Dalai Lama has voiced the eminently sensible suggestion that immigrants should return to their countries of origin, once they have been repaired in mind, body and spirit through the benefits of experiencing European society.
    This has been met with a predictable storm of abuse from the usual and entirely predictable prats with no grasp of history. So now I wonder, should we forget Christianity which seems so set on self-destruction and embrace Buddhism? They really do seem to have the right ideas.

  11. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    The bbc likes to tell us it is not biased and that it gets things ‘about right’

    On shows like question time and politics live each guest should be introduced as a remainer or leaver in the same way that they are labelled Tory, labour or whatever. The one leaver on politics live today or Julia Hartley Brewer on QT could have been introduced as leavers for example.
    Maybe when audiences picked up on the fact that the remainers outnumber the leavers on every show by 3 or 4 to 1 the bbc might start having equal numbers of each in the future.
    I won’t hold my breath.

    Also,
    A suggestion about our overcrowded prisons.
    Outsource prisons (to places like Turkey, Saudi Arabia or Somalia for examples)
    Any prisoner serving over 2 years should be sent there to complete their sentence.
    That will be cheaper for us and give money to these poor places.
    The politicians love these people and keep telling us how wonderful and enriching they are so there can’t possibly be any question that the prisoners would not be treated nicely.
    I won’t hold my breath.

    Emmanuel , I totally agree – most people are far too busy to think about or identify the motivation of those appearing – except of course those with the highest profile . The left/right label is not relevant with regard to brexit.

    I think the Far Left bbc uses this smokescreen to support its bias to continue to try and brain wash / frighten the public into toeing the line and staying in .

    I just hope that one day , when we’re well clear of the ReichEU
    And Corbyn and his comrades are compost – there will be an inquiry into the BBC and maybe this site won’t be needed any more .. can but wish …
