    If there’s a second referendum it will be the end of UK democracy as it should operate, because voter disillusionment will negate it. Only the Muslims will vote, as soon as there’s a Muslim Party to vote for.


    • Roland Deschain says:

      It will show our votes count for nothing and that alternative methods are necessary.


    • DICK R says:

      The result of any second referendum has already been fixed , why else do they want one


    • G says:

      “Only the Muslims will vote, as soon as there’s a Muslim Party to vote for.” This is the muslim Government, ‘in waiting’.


    • Richard Pinder says:

      At least the Nazis in Germany and Islamisists in Algeria both openly and honestly campaigned and won on a policy to abolish democracy. The only way you can tell that the Remainers are campaigning on a policy to abolish democracy is that they do not respect the result of referendums they lose, and also support the anti-democratic European Union. We also know that the Electoral Commission is run by anti-democratic Remainers. So we know that the system is already set up for a fix. The only reason the Electoral Commission did not fix the last referendum was because they thought that they could not possibly lose the referendum. That was also the reason that the BBC wanted to be balanced. If the BBC was clearly unbalanced and Remain won, it would not have ended the UKIP problem for the establishment.

      It looks like the BBC could bring out programs that prove the FEAR is TRUE. (1) “The EU and Colonialism”: Africa proves that no country could economically survive if not under European rule, (2) “The EU and Russia”: Russia proves that no country could defend itself if not under European rule, (3) “The EU and the Planet”: China proves that no country could save the Planet if not under European rule, (4) “The EU and Islam”: Islam proves that no country can avoid war if not under European rule, and finally (5) “The EU and the BBC”: The BBC proves that no country could avoid fake news if not under European rule.

      Well the time is fast approaching where I am now considering not paying tax to the UK government and settling abroad. The country is a mess, full of far too many imbeciles.

    Hi Fred
    The second referendum dream assumes that ‘we ll get it right next time ‘ in accordance with ReichEU rules but just supposing the outcome was the same again. ?

    You’re right about the Muslim party ( which may well be the Socialist Halal Labour Party ) but hopefully the Sunni and Shi’a branches will destroy each other.

    Gove played a good game over the weekend devaluing the May chequers sell out but it needs our brother locked to the ReichEU such as Hungary to do a real job of blocking any deal.

    Like the great employment figures on the previous thread as well as the fact that guest workers are going home because of the strength of the euro v Sterling it’s all good. But won’t see that on al beeb

    The guardian is shocked a survey of 4000 which found that 40% of the British population thinks multiculturalism is a threat to the british way of life – I’m guessing the survey was done in London because the other 60% would be foreigners – if they understood English of course ….


    • Broadcasting-on-Behalf-of-the-Caliphate says:

      “Diversity” has become the new catchword of Anglo-American liberal elites in recent years, replacing “multiculturalism”. It is being used to force through change in society using “positive discrimination”.


      • DICK R says:

        In a similar way that multi culturalism is just a euphemistic term for multi RACIALISM, the real aim .


      • Richard Pinder says:

        In the 80’s the left-wing morons were going on about Blacks and Whites being the same, dreaming of a World of identical clones. Now they have gone completely the other way with the worship of diversity, it now seems that having identical twins is frowned upon.

        Although there doesn’t seem to be any political or intellectual diversity on the BBC. The Brexit majority, Causational Climate Scientists, Intelligent White males and even Labour MP’s with scientific qualifications are effectively banned from appearing on the BBC.


      • Holly Selassie says:

        Funny how “multiculturalism” got binned as soon as Merkel said that it was no longer helpful.
        It was a failed policy. So it wasn`t allowed to be referred to again, in polite company. And-of course-the BBC, Sky, Guardian etc-all complied.
        Merkels word is law…she`s our dumpy Obama you know.
        Would love to be between Merkel and Hillary, to see who best suits a briar pipe and Madame Mao pantsuit. Ought to be jumpsuits really.


    • Emmanuel Goldstein says:

      I fully believe that us leavers would easily have more votes than the remainers and a bigger percentage than the 52% last time.
      I also fully believe that any result will be fiddled to show a remain win.
      I have absolutely no trust in our government and I am sure they would manipulate and cheat to give remain a win.
      I am not alone in thinking this.
      Therefore, no second referendum.

      Anyway, why would people who don’t accept the 2016 referendum result accept a 2018 result if they lost (again) so even if the result was honest we would still have the remoaners crying for a 3rd. 4th. etc. referendum.

      Therefore, another vote is pointless.


      • Fedup2 says:

        I was truly shocked by the out come of the Peoples’ referendum because I was sure that that would have been fixed .

        If there is a Next time, because they’ve realised that the majority really have had enough of shared / given away / sovereignty ,I’m sure they’ll fix it .

        Or crunch numbers to show remain should have won and have a best of 3 sometime around 2021


      • ID says:

        What I find amusing is the sudden conversion of those who were decrying the referendum and plebescite as the infernal tools of demagogues and rabble rousers after the Brexit referendum to the “People’s vote”. Pompous old remain dodderers would pop up in the media to proclaim the wonders of “our representative democracy” and all kinds of flatulence was produced about the “sovreignty of Parliament”, Now because ” we all know more”, the “People’s vote” will be our salvation.


      • tarien says:

        Sadly Emmanuel I agree with you. Trust in the establishment to adhere to the people’s vote would be doubtful, the real battle here is against those that control the moeny, the Elitist Bankers that of course control the EU and those men and women that work in the Brissels offices. The Prime Minister presently residing in No 10, tells us that we have to accept her Chequers deal or a no deal-dictatorship not democracy-personally I’ll take my chances with a NO Bexit Deal, and throw off the chains of the EU-Other countries inside the EU will eventually dig themselves out as the EU know quite well.


    • Lucy Pevensey says:




    • G.W.F. says:

      Perhaps Anne Marie Waters is right; we are not leaving the EU. Start working towards the destruction of the EU. Start thinking of a post EU world, not an exit.


  3. AsISeeIt says:

    Lanky lightweight presenter Dan Walker fluffs his lines this morning and one feels he inadvertently exposes his colleagues obsession and indeed heartbreak at the state of current affairs…

    “Hello and welcome to BBC Brexit, er, I mean BBC Breakfast… haha. don’t worry it’s not really BBC Brexit…”

    Our Steph toddles across the road to Salford Uni (the BBC’s idea of a good place to test public opinion!)

    Three Remainer female students to one male Leaver. Par for the course.

    I have to admit our Steph did ask a pertinent question. After one young lass expressed her worries about the possible dire economic consequences of our independence vote Steph querried: “Do you really worry about that sort of thing, when I was a youngster I didn’t used to think about things like that?”

    Good point. But I think you forget, Steph, when you were younger EU propaganda hadn’t got such a grip of the British education system and our national broadcaster wasn’t in full on Remain panic mode pumping out daily scare fake news at our youngsters.


  4. MarkyMark says:

    “A thoughtcrime is an Orwellian neologism used to describe an illegal thought. The term was popularized in the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell, first published in 1949, wherein thoughtcrime is the criminal act of holding unspoken beliefs or doubts that oppose or question Ingsoc, the ruling party.”



    • tarien says:

      Now we can see for sure Marky Marky that we the indigenous white living with mostly Christian values are under a dictatotship which I find offensive. Of course a vast majority in this nation have predjudice against certain people’s ideology-those that follow the teachings of Islam in particular. Multicutural propaganda has and is being deliberately shoved down our necks at evey turn through the likes of the BBC and other Social Media operators-Politically motivated? Of course, to destroy our sovereignty as the EU has been doing these past 42+ years-it wasn’t that bad when we were NOT inside the EU. Without a deal suits me.


    • Holly Selassie says:

      Where does a thought crime stop, and a hate crime start?
      over to Matrix Chambers, Cherie Booth and loads of Euros.
      Do we hate to think?…or think while hating?
      Do I see an “All In the Mind” gobswamp with Professor Laurie Taylor, and his son-who sounds like Ed Miliband, had he been a ventriloquists dummy.


  5. AsISeeIt says:

    On BBC London News our Asad Ahmed sounds pretty excited about his top headline. “The number of Far-Right prisoners in jail has increased five-fold in the last two years!” He has another stat for us “For the first time the number of white people arrested for terror offenses….” etc etc etc – I’m sure you get the message. Oh, and just incase you didn’t quite learn the lesson the BBC wanted you to learn our Asad gives you a quick reminder of that nasty chap (‘radicalised online’ no less – and presumably not a bit mental at all) who ran his van into “muslim pedestrians outside a mosque…” etc etc etc.

    Do you remember when you were at school, some years ago, I know. Anyway, do you recall how you would have a morning assembly led by the headmaster first thing in the day and he would often drone on moralising about something or other. Perhaps telling you some far-fetched sounding tale all in an attempt to make you think in a certain way, banishing any rogue independent ideas, and basically trying to control your potentially devient behaviour… well, otherwise, how would the teacher get you to do what they wanted you to do. You were kids then.


    • kingkp says:

      Far right being your average Tory vote of yesteryear of course…someone who believes in the rule of law, democracy, an independent judiciary, innocent until proven guilty, facts being important and trumping emotion..those kind of white anglo-saxon male virtues that are so terrifying to muslims and most women.


  6. Cassandra says:

    Earlier this morning on Toady there was a report on a test that could identify the gender of a foetus. The report went on to highlight the fact that some mothers use this information to abort the foetus if it was a girl. The Labour MP Naz Shah was interviewed on her thoughts about the subject. Shah if you remember, was suspended by the Labour Party for anti semitic comments in 2016. In 2017 she ‘liked’ a tweet which included this sentence, “Those abused girls in Rotherham and elsewhere just need to shut their mouths. For the good of diversity”. Shah deleted the retweet and unliked the tweet soon after. Why did Toady choose her to comment on the foetus gender test story?
    Nowhere was it mentioned in the report that this is a practice rife in South Asian communities in the UK.
    Another example of blatant manipulation of the facts by the BBC to shield their ‘allies’ in their reporting.


  7. Swelter says:

    Oh we get it asiseeit.. The Brexit vote was a modern day equivalent of the Peasants revolt and now we are vilified and belittled at every opportunity. .And Our Liberal masters are now coming for us with every means at their deposal to make sure we pay for our temerity .


  8. Panda says:

    They will never have another straight in/out vote don’t worry. But the remoaner crowd think they’re being really clever by offering a vote on Mrs Mays’ partly staying in the EU ‘deal’ or staying in the EU fully.
    Do any of these Mandleson/Blair/ Umunna etc types really think the public are dumb enough to fall for that obvious rubbish?

    Brett Kavanaugh ‘sexual assault victim’ speaks out

    The Senate Judiciary Committee is to decide later this week whether President Donald Trump’s selection of Brett Kavanaugh for the US Supreme Court should go to a full vote of the Senate. In the meantime, a woman claiming Mr Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were both teenagers has publicly identified herself. She is Christine Blasey Ford, a professor of psychology at Palo Alto University. Mr Kavanaugh denies the allegations, which first surfaced last week.

    We look at why nominations to the Supreme Court are so important for Americans.


    When lying fails, go for allusion, quote and claim. American Professors being such beacons of impartiality these days.


  11. AsISeeIt says:

    Lets slightly rephrase the news –

    PM Theresa May is suggesting a Brext deal where the UK accepts all EU laws as supreme over British laws, complies with EU taxes, tariffs and regulations, where Britain is not allowed to make independent trade deals and where we have to accept unrestrained inward migration, our security and defence will gradually be merged with European forces and Britain would be compelled to make increasing contributions to the EU buget.

    Meanwhile chief EU negotiator Michel Barnier said Britain would need to make more concessions if a deal is ever to be signed off.


  12. Gammon says:

    Oh my – R4 this morning still pedalling the 35% house price crash (interview Robinson / May) even though clarified as never said or predicted. Beeb could argue recorded before the clarification but should then be edited out. An editing error, mistake or too good a “fake news” line not to to be trotted out given the opportunity.

    Also in Beeb land – they will need to divert more money to stopping the spread of fake news globally. Joke. And why do they feel they need to “compete” with Netflix?? That is not their mandate!!!

    Finally, Clegg(end) makes a joke of himself this morning trying to relaunch himself? Gets tongue tied and starts talking about the challenges to free movement of radioactive materials… what???

    The BBC breakfast and R4 are all over Brexit…but not a single positive and constant references to ‘there is now a growing demand for the people’s vote’…
    As I said to a Remainer last night who didn’t even know the EU was constituted as a State… We had a vote you lost, that’s democracy.. he said yes but people didn’t know what they were voting for…my answer – well there were two simple questions and now you think everyone will understand the complexities of the Chequers deal?
    We all know what the people’s vote will say – 1. we stay in the EU or 2. we stay in the EU

          So not having a government is enough anymore-we have to have mediating gobshites on Soros time to tell us what government is.
          Just liberal bubble wrap really aren`t they? Despite that “grand title”.
          Even May-dense and shit though she is-has nothing to learn from this “Institute”.
          Unless it`s a psychiatric one, where the BBC talk to Napoleon Syndrome survivors like Clegg, Major, Cable and Soubry. And that Greenpeace dill, who thinks that he`s “Head Of Oceans”. And no mocking either from the BBC-these are serious times, you see.

    2018-09-15 Guardian opinion.
    “Russia is mocking us. First the Salisbury attack, then information warfare. Time to wake up” Carole Cadwalladr

    I consulted her Wikipedia article, 49 years old, writes like a ten year old.
    Assertion heavy, outrage prominent, evidence absent, needs to understand that many of us believe that the Gray Lady is a lefty comic, not an authority.

    No wonder the employers of this, so-called journalist, regularly spend time and money, apologising for her inaccurate juvenilia.

    No comments allowed, the editor being fully aware, that a massacre would take place.

    Time for the BBC to give the girl a series of her own. Entitled “Connections by Carole”, in the James Burke mould, start with some objects unnconnected in time or space. Waste zillions holidaying in your favourite spots, get some film. Claim a series of events, of Gleipnirian tenuousness, connect the unconnected.

      Bottomline : You ARE a victim if some rape actually happened

    Dear Anna Soubry,

    Can you tell me why people have to “Suck It Up” regards immigration when your party leaders have said the following:

    1978 … “Every country can take some small minorities and in many ways they add to the richness and variety of this country. The moment the minority threatens to become a big one, people get frightened.” – Margaret Thatcher 1978

    2012 … “Two and a half years ago, the coalition governme nt was formed, and we made a clear promise to the British public. After thirteen years of uncontrolled mass immigration, this government would reduce and control immigration.” – Theresa May 2012

    2015 … “Because when immigration is too high (no figure given), when the pace of change is too fast, it’s impossible to build a cohesive society…. And we know that for people in low-paid jobs, wages are forced down even further while some people are forced out of work altogether. … So there is no case, in the national interest, for immigration of the scale we have experienced over the last decade.” – Theresa May 2015

    Yours sincerely

    “The European Union is secretly preparing to accept a frictionless Irish border after Brexit in a move that raises the prospect of Theresa May striking a deal by the end of the year.”

    Phew. So there isnt a problem with the N Ireland border. I am so glad the BBC can finally relax. All that hysteria from the ‘world’s most trusted broadcaster’ over the Irish border must have kept thousands of North London therapists in business for the last 18 months.

    Ummmm, much as it really galls me to have to say this, BUT I have to applaud the BBC for standing their ground at refusing to send umpteen cameras, and wall to wall broadcasting of Princess Eugenie’s upcoming wedding. Accordingly the Duke of York and his ‘team’ are now scrambling to get any broadcaster to record the event. Good ! Another outing of the Clooneys/ Beckhams (ugh)/and other ‘close friends’ is enough to make anyone reach for the Bombay !

  24. Jeff says:

    Is anyone else following the BBC’s flagship drama series, Bodyguard? It’s fascinating…though that’s not necessarily a compliment.
    I’ve never seen so many ethnic minorities on the box since they scrapped Crime Watch. They’re everywhere.
    The programme started in breathtaking fashion, with a would be Muslim terrorist hiding in a railway loo, about to detonate herself into Allah’s kingdom come. From that point on it’s been more piss taking than breath taking.
    Firstly, the armed response unit seemed to be almost entirely made up of women; quite a number of them a darker hue than the would be terrorist. Since then we’ve been introduced to numerous high ranking security officers, mainly black women and Asian men. It’s got to the point where I’m actually laughing as another unlikely BEM trots onto the screen, ordering whitey about. God’s teeth!
    We had the penultimate episode last night, which is just as well because my blood pressure and temper were reaching boiling point.
    It’s looking suspiciously likely that the Prime Minister has been behind the murder of the Home Secretary and the entire bombing campaign has had nothing to do with the poor innocent Muslims. They’ve been used to camouflage the real culprits.
    It’s all down to horrible rogue elements in the upper echelons of the Conservative Party.
    Blimey, if only they were that clever…

      BBC Breaking News

      Lily Allen is the latest BBC minor star to appear in an episode of ‘The Bodyguard’ as a failing something or other whose career is detonating.

      But she does get her kit off and blow the lead lady. Emily & Co no longer are keen, though Andrew Marr is deep in Frankie Howerd negotiating with one of the girls from production. And his assistant.

      Netflix is panicking.

    • Richard Pinder says:

      I don’t watch BBC crime dramas because the criminals and terrorists all turn out to be nasty right-wing Mensa members, called Richard Pinder.

      Anyway, an actor is a person who wants to play the opposite of what they are in real life. So that means that all the Black actors must be weak and low IQ morons in real life, while the White actors must be left-wing, dim but nice, in real life.

    • BRISSLES says:

      I would like to hear from real police officers that there are certainly the amount we see of BAME and mixed race personnel in the higher ranks, because in nearly every drama we see on the box, from Murder in Paradise, Midsomer Murders – the later years, Lewis, and countless others, and now the Bodyguard, there is always a detective (or higher) who is of colour. Is this actually true, or purely a diversity pc exercise because its what has to be portrayed?


  25. Doublethinker says:

    Tomorrow Lord Hall is going to make a speech in which he claims that the BBC is in need of special protection from the competitive threat posed by Netflix, Amazon etc. Now since their multi million dollar deal with Obama I’m no great fan of Netflix but it’s typical of the BBC to seek even more legislation to boost their privileged position. Hell they already get over 4 billion from us under threat of imprisonment. They really are bloated leftists feeding off the British tax payer whilst at the same time forcing their putrid multi culti , open borders agenda down our throats 24/7. Will no one rid us of the steaming pile of shit that is what the BBC has become?

    1pm BBC Humberside Local news included a report from Rosie Carter of Hope Not Hate
    ..and they rejigged their Brexit vox pop , down to 2 anti Brexit voices

    In the 9am prog the Vox Pop was different
    We first heard 4 local accents of different politics saying “Get On With It.
    Voice #5 : Foreign accent ” I don’t understand this Brexit I have been here 14 years, it is a bad step”
    Voice #6 : Foreign accent, poor English “I have seen some of my friends deported , I do not like zis Brexit”
    (The weakling Home Office doesn’t just deport people for nothing)

    That HnH report
    See how they spin a different way to the press

    Seems to be a lot about Islam
    HnH try to spin it as ‘6/10 don’t mind multiculturalism’


    • StewGreen says:

      The HnH part seems to have been done some time ago
      Part 1 was “from the first 30 visits made between February and September 2017. ”
      And they did 30 panels after that.
      Of course Brendan Cox’s org is a nasty piece of work, so I would not trust anything they produce.

    There has been a huge increase in children wanting to change genders; with all the pain and hassle that must entail for so many.

    It is the the media’s fault for framing a primarily biological and psychiatric disorder as a social justice issue. They are so desperate to look virtuous but to actually help you have to have some uncomfortable conversations which might ‘offend’ someone. So they seized upon ‘transgender rights’ as the ideal topic: look virtuous without anyone being offended as it affects such a tiny number of people. You would think half of us question our gender the way they bang on about it yet I still have not met a single such individual.

    Lo and behold they have now created a problem out of nothing. I imagine many kids see it as a chance to get attention and victim status. So like so often the liberals not only fail to solve a problem but create one/make it worse. Being transgender should never have been framed as a social justice issue. It should have gone straight down the memory hole.


    • Rob in Cheshire says:


      I haven’t been watching this show, but I can guess that a terrorist bombing campaign cannot be allowed to involve muslims, ever.

      In real life, it is simple: terrorists are muslims, 99.9% of the time. Whether they use bombs, guns, knives or vehicles, they are muslims. It is banal and obvious.

      No writer who wants to get commissioned for left wing British TV can afford to write something which reflects reality, however. They can get away with the terrorists appearing to be muslims, so long as it finally turns out to have been a “far right” plot all along, and the muslims are in fact innocent.

      It is as believable as any crass propaganda produced by any sort of corrupt state media anywhere at any time, from Goebbels to Pravda. The BBC must take its place in that illustrious company.

    Lord Ahmad appointed as PM’s Special Envoy to promote religious freedom
    Lord Ahmad given role as Prime Minister’s Special Envoy on Freedom of Religion or Belief.


    The role, which supports the Prime Minister’s commitment to religious tolerance in the UK, will allow Lord Ahmad to demonstrate the country’s commitment to religious freedom by promoting inter-faith respect and dialogue internationally.

    Lord Ahmad, who is also Minister of State for the Commonwealth and the UN at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, will promote the UK’s firm stance on religious tolerance abroad, helping to tackle religious discrimination in countries where minority faith groups face persecution.

    The PM’s Special Envoy for Freedom of Religion or Belief, Lord Tariq Ahmad of Wimbledon said:

    In too many parts of the world, religious minorities are persecuted, discriminated against and treated as second class citizens. As a man of faith, I feel this very keenly.

    Freedom of Religion or Belief is a human right enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It must be respected. People from all faiths or none should be free to practise as they wish. This respect is key to global stability, and is in all our interests.

    I am delighted to have been appointed as the PM’s Special Envoy. I shall use the UK Government’s global network to reach across religious divides, seek the elimination of discrimination on the basis of religion or belief and bring different communities together.

For every prophet of every faith, including the Prophet of Islam, women played a central and pivotal role in all decision-making, both internally and externally.

  35. Foscari says:

    I really do believe that the BBC is run by a ” BIG BROTHER”
    probably out of the Diversity and Positive Discrimination Dept.
    If you didn’t need any further proof just watch Bodyguard.
    I believe this crime thriller was commissioned by the BBC
    under very strict census conditions. BIG BROTHER being the
    arbiter on what was going to be allowed.
    I watched on Netflix recently Fauda a two series thriller set in
    Israel and the West Bank. Here the Israeli security services
    are portraid as being as vicious as the Palastinian terrorists.
    Infact many people who have watched this great series had
    more empathy for a Palestinian lady doctor than any other
    character. And this was an Israeli production.
    I have written about this before but after five episodes
    of Bodyguard it looks very much that this thriller has nothing
    to do with Islamic Terrorism. For one simple reason the BBC
    would NOT allow it.
    Except for the anti hero male protection officer nearly all the
    main characters are women or ethnic or both. It appears very
    much that the baddies are all white middle aged men’
    Of course there could be a twist in the final episode with us
    finding out that an Osama Bin Laden character is Mr Nasty.
    But I reckon there are one of two hopes for this. Bob Hope
    or No Hope. To be honest I am very much surprised that our
    anti hero was allowed to have a Caucasion wife and two white
    skinned children. How did Big Brother miss this? Hasn’t he seen
    all the adverts on TV over the last couple of years?


    • Richard Pinder says:

      I don’t watch BBC crime dramas because the criminals and terrorists all turn out to be nasty right-wing Mensa members, called Richard Pinder.

      Anyway, an actor is a person who wants to play the opposite of what they are in real life. So that means that all the Black and female actors must be weak and low IQ morons in real life, while the White male actors must be left-wing, dim but nice, in real life.

      With it being a BBC Drama, its going to turn out that the anti hero male protection officer is in fact a right-wing Russian/Jewish secret agent planted by Putin. His paternal Grandfather is an evil Anglo/Saxon, his paternal Grandmother is a pointy nosed Jew, His maternal Grandfather is a nasty Russian and his maternal Grandmother is White supremacist.


    • Guest Who says:

      I am starting on ‘Jack Ryan’ on Prime, clearly also panicking that one bbc show in the home country has got a fraction of the Eric and Ernie audience.

      Not bad, but there are glimmers. A bunch of terrorists are stormed in a Paris apartment. As the hapless French swat come upstairs they all look at the sole female when the suicide vest is broken out. She ‘volunteers’. However, when she is the only one left she doesn’t feel in the mood. Unfortunately, fog of war-wise, the guys coming in the back don’t get the memo and much redecorating required.

      Not really buying that when women treated in Israeli hospitals return for outpatients to kill them all.

      However, staying with as it seems promising still, costs half the TVL to watch and as yet has no lesbian love scene for no apparent reason.

    3pm News
    Due to Brexit
    #1 Jelly will no longer set, #2 All milk will go sour
    #3 JLR will go onto a 3 day week due to uncertainty about diesels and Brexit
    The boss has said that government policy on diesels was responsible for the closure last week of a Jaguar plant with 1,000 jobs
    How come I never heard that ?

    Sept 11
    \\ Ralf Speth told a conference in Birmingham, central England, that JLR had lost a thousand jobs as a result of diesel policy “and those numbers will be counted in the tens of thousands if we do not get the right Brexit deal”. //

    airqualitynews.com Sept 12th
    \\ Dr Ralf Speth issued an impassioned defence of diesel cars:
    “The diesel vehicles we produce to EU 6 standards are some of the cleanest cars ever made”.
    Regardless of #airpollution he likes them, he really, really, really likes them.//

    \\ He said: “Public policy sometimes seems to know what it is against, not what it is for.
    The restrictions on diesel make the point.
    “The diesel vehicles we produce to EU 6 standards are some of the cleanest cars ever made.
    They are as clean as petrol and produce 25-30% less CO2.
    Yet, they are demonised.
    “No incentive has been put in place to change from older polluting cars,
    but the disincentive has been placed on the newer, cleaner models through tougher regulations and higher taxation.
    The resulting impacts are as significant as forecast.”//

    Freedom isn’t free. It costs, Blood or gold. Brexit is about Freedom not the price of Freedom, so why does the BBC concentrate on hyping and exaggerating the supposed costs and not mention the real prize? Yes, there will be some costs….but as bad as the BBC and fellow Remoaners predict in their doom-laden reporting?

    Freedom from the EU straitjacket will cost, up front, but who knows what the long term economic benefits or costs will be. The IMF certainly doesn’t know, it’s forecasts have been reliably wrong for decades….failing completely to forecast the recession and totally misjudging the effect of the Brexit referendum. Why would we now base our whole future on a forecast from such a failed economic thinktank whose leader owes her job to George Osborne, no surprise that the EU’s cunning ‘Little Finger’ placeman, our own Chancellor Phillip Hammond, was by her side urging us to listen to her siren words of defeat. The BBC were naturally quoting the IMF as if it was the Ten Commandments being passed down to us and whilst Kamal Ahmed admitted the IMF had called the referendum wrong apparently it is all different now and we should listen to the wise words of Christine Lagarde.

    We are told that there is no good thing to come out of Brexit, all scenarios lead to ruin and disaster especially if we go for the no-deal. Ahmed admitted that the IMF was in fact trying to scare us into a deal…no coincidence this ‘advice’ has come out now as the government tries to paint a no-deal scenario as Armageddon and thus the only option is to vote for May’s Chequers farce.

    Why is it legitimate for the IMF and Lagarde to comment and interfere in British politics? If Putin had suddenly spoken up and made his views on Brexit known would the BBC be so keen to give credence and legitimacy to that?

    And why is the debate centred solely on the economics, or the supposed economics of Brexit? That wasn’t why people voted to leave the EU, they left to take back control of politics, laws, taxes and our borders….to regain our sovereignty. Where is the BBC narrative about that?

    Not any idea that this is what we are gaining from Brexit, the BBC is completely distorting the narrative to one about alarmist threats to jobs and trade when it is about sovereignty and immigration. If we get control of those Brexit will be a ‘success’ on the terms that it was originally set out on….the BBC’s concentration on economics is designed to scare the hell out of you and make you think you’ll lose your job and maybe your house, planes won’t fly, terrorists and criminals will swarm in [of course they never do across the BBC’s open border], the NHS will implode with no EU staff and factories will all move to Poland. It is of course mostly nonsense…it is in the EU’s interest to agree a deal that will be mutually beneficial to both whatever the rhetoric from Barnier and Junckers. Just a shame the BBC is peddling the Great Brexit Disaster Myth and running the country down. Today they have started a blitz on Brexit as they panhandle across Britain for what they hope will be Brexit inspired disaster stories from the public….even in Leave voting Peterborough they managed to find mostly anti-Brexit voices and they seem to have conjured up a permanent panel of students and businessmen, two groups most likely to voice discontent with Brexit, as a sounding board for Brexit’s progress, to be constantly on-hand to give us their verdict.

    ‘Would love to hear from you if you have a business – what practical measures are you taking to prepare for Brexit? What are the potential benefits/downfalls? @bbc5live Breakfast’

    We were also treated to Clegg, Toynbee and reporters from the anti-Brexit Times and an ‘independent’ expert who told us a no-deal would be a chaotic disaster and must be avoided. The BBC’s whole approach was driven by a negative narrative about Brexit…it’ll be terrible with no positives whatever the outcome. This was backed up by ‘facts’ as R4 went out to find the truth about immigration. Naturally we are all mistaken and our perceptions about immigration are wrong….it’s dropping and anyway there’s not that many people really coming here anyway and you know what, they’re integrating really well….and now they are all leaving because of the horrors and terrors of Brexit….so worry not you fools and knaves.

    The BBC seems to have put all its resources at the disposal of the Remain campaign for another referendum with the option of voting to stay in the EU…but that is of course illegitimate as that question has already been answered. Nothing more annoying than hearing a dissembling BBC presenter urging us in excited, whispery tones to ring in and tell us our Brexit disaster stories and then ask if we should stay in the EU as if it was a real option and not one they are fielding for their collaborators in Remain to muddy the waters in the hope they can confuse people enough and make them think Brexit is the end of the world so that they will run back to the warm embrace of the EU.

    Maybe they’re looking forward to a nice little Brexit bonus from Lord Hall should his dream come true and the BBC manages to swing the country towards the Establishment status quo…maybe he’ll pay all those back taxes they’ve been dodging.

    At @5874Design we’re not doing physical things, but it’s definitely effecting budgets and we’re going to make sure we have more cash in reserve. It’s watch and wait currently

    Do we have too? I can’t handle much more of this BS. It’s all semantics anyway, as no one ACTUALLY knows anything. Irritable Duncan Syndrome was on with @annaefoster the other day. I honestly wanted to drive off a cliff.
