Start the Week Thread 24 September 2018

The Far Left BBC has a busy week ahead to promote its biased anti British view of the world.

The Far Left Labour Party Conference, the Tommy Robinson political retrial , the evidence of a woman attempting to prevent President Trumps’ Supreme Court nominee by alleging indecent assault from 36 years ago. And I haven’t even mentioned the BBC Remainer propaganda .

So an easy week for us to evidence BBC Bias .

    now on BBC Radio Lincolnshire the Police & Crime Commissioner is accepting calls
    He is an enthusiast about his eco-lightbulb scheme, new crappy logos, and rainbow police cars.
    He thinks the gov don’t give him enough money.
    (tucked away at the end of the news “funding will be increased by £3m next year”)

      So police are short of money.
      How much did it cost South Yorkshire Police to hire a van so that Dawn Copley could move 40 miles from Manchester to be their Deputy Chief Constable ?
      £50, £150 ?
      Try £28,287 “moving expenses”

    This is what you get with nationalised industries.
    Instead of the profit motive, you get the political imperative, the survival motive, the sweep it under the carpet motive, the denial motive, the throw it into the long grass motive.

    Not unlike the BBC, in fact!

    Another horrendous crime where confidence tricksters conned war veterans out of their life savings. I note how often it is ROPers are the perpetrators of these despicable crimes.

    This is the ‘othering’ of those who have different beliefs which led to Rotherham and countless other atrocities throughout history. The in group/out group preference is hardwired into humans and no amount of vibrant newsreaders can change this, especially when backed up by an ideology which explicitly states over and over that those who are unbelievers are the most vile of created beings. Diversity is not strength here but a terrible weakness – when some think it is fine to rob those who deserve our utmost respect.

    Given that Brexit, The Scottish Referendum, and President Trump results, the losers have refused to accept each of these results, any re-run will be doctored to give the ‘correct’ outcome.

      To an extent, I can understand the Scottish referendum, much as it annoys me. Would the leavers on here just have given up if we’d lost?

      What is downright dangerous is where the left won’t accept they’ve lost and allow the winner to carry out their mandate. Both here and in the States we see this phenomenon, clearly highly organised and with the tacit support of much of the media. Very much including the BBC. It has to be resisted, because if the left win this then as far as I’m concerned voting is a waste of time and other methods are required.

    Thursday 27th Sept is Tommy Robinson’s retrial with additional charges added. It will not be a jury trial.
    See it as the much vaunted fusion of sharia with British law. Tommy has offended the ROP by going on about child rapes and cover ups, and must be punished. The UK courts are compliant and will respect – as far as they can – the requirement for sharia justice.

    As a counter to any demonstration in support of Tommy Robinson, the Home Secretary’s front line wannabee stormtroopers have been busy preparing a counter demonstration with even the anarchists demanding that the state puts him back in jail.

    Expected coverage from the BBC will probably be a film of some shaven headed tattooed working class man, already filmed in the BBC studies doing a Nazi salute.

    It quotes her
    “I am very worried that as the Brexit debate becomes more heated over the next couple of months that people will start exploiting immigration again.
    And we will see as we saw Nigel Farage’s frankly shocking, appalling posters that we saw that were frankly exploiting people who were fleeing persecution, not actually a debate about immigration at all.
    …. My plea …is to be more thoughtful and responsible about what language you use…”

      trubble – What we all have to remember is that ‘this Political Federation’ is by no means the final destination. ‘Ever closer and deeper political union’ is the objective, and that will only have been reached at destination UNITARY STATE. The French will be pushing the hardest for this, because their need and aim is direct access to German money. The Germans will play ball because they feel guilty and also, they can make and sell stuff, which is what they’re best at. If we stay in : no parliament in Westminster. Forget Irish border problems. There won’t be any border anywhere in the EU, all the power will reside in Brussels. (Not really, but that is the fairy tale).
      Just as the 5-nation Coal & Steel Union morphed into the EEC, the EEC morphed into the EU, so the EU will morph into ONE SINGLE UNITARY state. Does any of those clowns in Whitehall or Westminster want to get up NOW and tell us the truth? Doubt it. The EU is on a journey; the train has NOT reached the destination, not by a long chalk.

    Ralph Brinkhaus may be the name of the first real crack in the Merkel edifice. He was voted in (in a secret ballot) as the new boss of the CDU in the Bundestag, replacing V Kauder, a longstanding Merkel pal. It remains to be seen whether Brinkhaus can restore some conservative credentials to the CDU. He has to be a Merkel ‘buddy’ as well, no one in the party would openly oppose her monolithic rule. But here’s the thing: had this NOT been a secret ballot, I strongly suspect Kauder would still be there.
    For, the parties in the German Bundestag are far more reminiscent of the old GDR, than a classical Western parliamentary democracy. Someone opposing a close mate of Merkel is a little like someone opposing a close mate of Erich Honeker well before 1989.

    BBC a bit biased on Brexit? Biased against Brexit more accurately?

    Nick Robinson yesterday pressed McDonnell demanding to know if he will ‘guarantee people will have a vote to stay in the EU’ and when he couldn’t get the positive answer he wanted he declared that ‘this demonstrates you don’t want to reverse Brexit’. Hmmm….But everything Labour says proves they do want to stop Brexit…for their own reasons…just Robinson and Co aren’t interested in those.

    Trouble is Labour don’t give a damn about Brexit or what happens to the economy or any other issue related to Brexit, they want to get into No10 and will do anything, including voting against whatever deal, Canada, Norway or whatever, May manages to agree regardless of its merits in order to try an force a general election. Party before country. Robinson doesn’t think this is alarming and nor do any of his colleagues even though this is Labour essentially voting for a no-deal.

    The BBC is constantly using alarmist language about a no-deal, ‘crashing out’ and ‘cliff-edge’ and ‘chaos’, and yet Labour proposes just this…and nothing from the BBC. In fact, I thought they were going to tackle it this morning as Robinson started off in a business-like and focussed tone talking about Labour’s voting strategy…but no…of course not…the only problem, as far as he could see, was that this was voting alongside Boris and Jacob Rees-Mogg. No, it’s not the same…Boris and JRM want a deal, maybe Canada, maybe not, but they want a deal….Corbyn doesn’t, claiming that we need an election because only Labour is seen as capable of negotiating properly with the EU….er…but Guido says polls show a total lack of confidence in Corbyn and Labour…around 70% think he is incompetent.

    Pienaar admitted the truth today as he told us that the six conditions that Labour have set before they could agree to a deal were ‘designed to be impossible to meet’..because Corbyn wants to force an election…but again no shock or outrage at this party political opportunism that puts a bombshell at the heart of Brexit and does untold damage to the national interest. Pienaar dismissed it as being the Opposition’s job to oppose Government on big issues regardless and to make life tougher for government…extraordinarily cynical thinking from Pienaar.

    We also had Anna Foster weighing in with her two penneth worth discussing the Irish border….apparently proposals to use technology and special ‘trust’ based licensing to facilitate trade is ‘magical thinking’ and apparently ‘there is no sign that the EU would accept such technology’…well except for the fact that Barnier suggested such a solution not days ago and the EU’s own study recommended using this technology which is already used in many places…including our own port of Felixstowe.

    No, we’re not getting the real picture on Brexit, not the machiavellian politics not the true picture on trade…for instance….today the BBC’s headline is …

    Next warns on Brexit risks as online sales rise
    ‘Next has reported better-than-expected sales following this summer’s heatwave but warned of Brexit-related risks to its business. ‘

    So even as sales rise the BBC claims Next are ‘warning about Brexit’.

    No, no they’re not. They may be cautious as is wise to be but they are not ‘warning about Brexit’. Far from it in fact…even the ‘cliff-edge, crashing out, chaos’ of a no-deal is not a threat to Next….they say there may be challenges but….

    ‘we would not want to understate the work we are doing to prepare for this eventuality. However, we do not believe that the direct risks of a no-deal Brexit pose a material threat to the ongoing operations and profitability of NEXT’s business here in the UK or to our £190m turnover business in the EU.’

    That’s for a no-deal…how can the BBC claim this is an alarming ‘warning’ about Brexit…if anything it is a positive message…but the BBC wish to downplay it…if it had been one of those negative scaremongering rants from pro-EU business leaders it would have been headline news.

    The BBC is a dishonest, untrustworthy spreader of lies and disinformation about Brexit, as it is on so many issues. Close it down.

      All it takes is to look up the EU statistics. Then you can start to see why they are in such a state over us leaving.
      WE have the second largest GDP and have low youth and other unemployment particularly in relation to the PIGS. In fact our need for EU workers keeps the rate in their home countries down as well.
      We are not in the EUro so can avoid the problems it brings.
      We are a successful country and our so called austerity would be something the PIGS would love to have.
      What the statistics show is that Germany is so dominant economically that it all but overwhelms the rest and will inevitably do so when we leave.
      Then either the Germans are forced to pay to keep it on the road or every other country will have to do as the German central bank says to keep the EU solvent.
      The rest is all rubbish talk. it is about the money as always.

    News reporting should be a straightforward task. You report what is said accurately and without bias.
    Not so the BBC, and certainly not so Jon Sopel in his coverage of Trump’s address to the UN.
    We were given snippets of what Trump said, all overlaid every couple of seconds with Sopel’s interpretation, as if we can’t be left to make up our own minds.
    Trump’s audience “giggled”, Sopel informed us. Perhaps they were amused at something Trump said – sounded
    quite like it – but Sopel had to sneer and skew it for his own narrative.
    He then claimed that something Trump said was met with “icy silence” (not just silence, note, but icy, see what he did there).
    And this is why we cannot trust the BBC’s news reporters, who no longer simply “report”.
    They interpret and analyse so that everything is presented through the prism of their own bias.
    Embellishment, bordering on sensationalism, used to be the preserve of the red tops. Now it is what the BBC does.
    For god’s sake, guys, just let the story tell itself! That is all we ask.

      In 2014 the EU hadn’t removed temporary roaming charges, that didn’t happen until 2017 (Regulation(EU) 2017/920).

      As to lead-free petrol:

      Japan was the first country to introduce unleaded petrol in April 1972, and to ban leaded petrol, in 1986. In June of that year, unleaded petrol went on sale in the UK, and by 1988, it was available in 11% of filling stations. The first car to go on sale in the UK with an unleaded-only diet was the Toyota Celica GT-Four in 1987.

      Meanwhile, the EU’s predecessor, the EEC, set new legislation for car emissions to make catalytic converters – which allowed engines to run only on unleaded – effectively essential by October 1993. This became known as the Euro 1 standard.

      There is another world out there that the Green Pixie is unaware of, as she sits on her EU-regulated mushroom.

    The BBC never stops does it? Austerity and ‘cuts’…it’s always on the agenda and always to blame for the ills of the world.

    Today Anna Foster introduced her show telling us Birmingham council were facing ruin and that a report had said this was due to ‘serious financial mismanagement’…Foster then went on to link this to cuts calling for people to ring in to tell us their tales of woe about councils failing due to the cuts.

    We were told that a report into Birmingham declared that it was failing to get basic services right, it had poor leadership and it didn’t listen to those on the ground as it believed it always knew best.

    How then is this in any way related to ‘cuts’? This is about appalling mismanagement not ‘cuts’. Why does the BBC link the two when the issues are completely different. Clearly Birmingham had made huge mistakes in managing its budget…if mistakes had not been made the situation would never have spiralled totally out of control as it has. It’s not money but incompetence that’s the problem. Maybe the fact that Birmingham is run by a Labour council has something to do with the BBC’s approach to this.

      “Failing to get basic services right”
      “Poor leadership”
      “Didn’t listen to those on the ground”
      “Believed it always knew best”
      “Serious financial mismanagement”

      The above attributes have long been perfected by the BBC so diverting attention from shortcomings of this nature is, of itself, a perfectly logical course of action but with, in this case, the added Brucie Bonus of allowing itself to indulge in bashing the Government.

    Why is the BBC calling the Sweden Democrats ‘Far-Right’? They oppose mass immigration and Islamisation but that doesn’t make them Far-Right…..maybe far to the right of the far-left BBC numpties but not far to the right of most rational people who see what is going on and think it should be stopped. It was the Swedish socialists who were the real nazis introducing a eugenics programme into Sweden in the desire to engineer a perfect people…odd the BBC doesn’t constantly refer to their ‘nazi’ heritage as they claim for the Sweden Democrats.

    Muttie Merkel has been dealt a ‘body blow’ apparently, losing a crucial vote and signalling the beginning of the end of this Stasi stooge who has had much the same effect on European stability and unity as her moustached predecessor.
    Will this make a difference to Brexit? Will there be more commonsense and conciliation in negotiations from now on?
    Not if the BBC have anything to do with it, or Popeye Starmer.

    In order to protect my mental health I’ve decided to avoid toady and al beeb news. But I caught I tiny bit of c4 news tonight where a bubbly John Snow asked Corbyn what the Labour Party stance on Brexit is – reply was – he ll go with the wishes of the membership – Hence proving that the Labour Party electorate is more important that national electorates .

    So party policy will be set by party membership votes . Shake that money tree . Why don’t human beings hibernate . I’d love to wake up after we’ve left – if that ever happens ….

      There’s a chasm of difference between the ‘members’ of the Labour Party and the ‘voters’ of the Labour Party – the members want a second referendum, and the voters want to Leave and ‘leave’ it at that.

      I have a relative who is a Labour councillor, and he says Momentum have bussed in candidates from 35 miles away to stand for Ward elections in his town ! The bare minimum is reported about this, and the moderate Labour members have little to fight with. If they dissent they’re accused of going against the Party leadership and are then ousted by even more Momentum activists. The anti-Semitism row is bad enough, but when lifelong and hard working Labour moderates find themselves having subversive meetings without the knowledge of another faction of the Party, then things have got pretty dire.

      The tories are a spent force, Labour is a split party, and the Libdems are a joke, – its time for a brand new party, because most of us haven’t a clue where to place our future votes !!

    In a Saturday Times Magazine article Attenborough admits a number of things, that I am staggered are not reported.
    I tweeted 3 screenshots

    \\ 18 years ago, Attenborough told me that if the North Pole continued melting at the rate it was, then it would be gone in 20 years.
    I remind him of this now.
    “Did I say that? It’s dangerous to put time frames on things.” //

    (He doesn’t disagree that Nigel Lawson is an intelligent
    & adds Lawson is used to dealing with stats & maths, so it’s surprising he doesn’t agree with me..the non-expert )
    \\ there are sceptics, highly intelligent people such as Lord Lawson …
    “Yes. I find it frustrating when people fight the evidence, especially people who are used to dealing with statistics and mathematics, like Lawson is. “//

    “the truth of global warming, what convinced me was a lecture I heard by a scientist called Ralph Cicerone.
    He produced facts and figures and I was left with no doubt.
    From that moment, I felt I could say it.”

    “people think I am a qualified scientist when I am NOT”
    “expect you to be an authority, when I am NOT”

    \\ President Trump, a global warming denier,
    “I don’t think Trump is susceptible to logical argument.
    I fear it would be him saying black is white and we would bandy our prejudices with one another.” //

      In 1998, Ralph Cicerone ended up in the Politics of Administration, so would have been unaware of or dismissive of the latest developments, as are all those who keep their jobs on the IPCC gravy train.

      The facts are that in one hundred years we have a 0.76 Kelvin increase in temperature, and a 100 parts per million increase in CO2. The Hoax is exposed by proving that the increase in CO2 did not cause the increase in temperature. Even before the “Unified Theory of Climate” solution, the evidence was, man-made and Volcanic CO2 does not have the Carbon-14 Isotope, levels of this Isotope show that 4 percent or 16ppm of the increase in CO2 in over 100 years was due to Man-made or Volcanic CO2, this is also confirmed by the ratio of Carbon-12 to Carbon-13 in the Atmosphere. This is not a surprise if you realise that ice core data shows that CO2 levels rise about 800 years after a warming and that the Medieval Warm period peaked about 800 years ago. The reason for this is that there is a 800 year thermal lag in the deep oceans and that the Oceans dominate the system with a mass 275 times that of the Atmosphere, so the ratio of CO2 in the Atmosphere/Oceans is dependent upon the heat in the Oceans. This proof of the hoax came as early as 1997, from this scientific paper. “Carbon cycle modelling and the residence time of natural and anthropogenic atmospheric CO2, (1997) by Tom Segalstad. So the increase in CO2 we see, is a natural increase caused by the medieval warm period, and human CO2 emissions represent only one and a half of a percent or 6ppm of the increase. So one hundred years ago we had CO2 levels of 300ppm, with 2.5% volcanic and man made CO2. Today we have CO2 levels of 400ppm, with 4% volcanic and man made CO2. However volcanic CO2 can cause huge variations in CO2 levels as is proved by this scientific paper “180 years of Atmospheric CO2 gas analysis by chemical methods” (2007) by Ernst-Georg Beck.

    And the Labour Party policy on Brexit is ……..errrr………errrr……….to sit on their hands and hope to capitalise on Tory discomfort without having any principles whatsoever.
    This will be achieved by inventing six random tests which cannot possibly be achieved simultaneously, and then by ignoring and failing to implement the result of the 2016 referendum.
    A bigger pile of total shite would be hard to imagine.
    Still, it should keep the BBC Remoaners happy.

    A repost
    * Leeds 25 May 2018, was the most important day in modern Liberal/Leftyism
    It was the day for lib/lefties to PROVE their HONOUR *
    .. instead AFAIK know ALL of their public figures spotted a mob casting stones at a man.. and chose to join them hurling stones.

    .. Especially when then saw one of the first guys said
    “It’s a secret, but I’m actually a barrister”
    … #SECRETemBARRassment more like.

    As in the Emperor’s New Clothes fable
    a passing small boy could have spotted that the Leeds Suit was not a thing of beauty its maker and all the courtesans said it was
    ..none of them chose to pause and consider the suit as he did.
    .. The only public none partisan that did this was Tucker Carlson
    and maybe a US congressman.
    =================
    To their shame a few not formerly in the libmob joined those hurling stones : like Guido, like Nick Ferrari, like Piers Morgan
    whilst others like Farage and Delingpole ?? and Maajid Naawaz failed to call out that stone hurling mob.
    Julia Hartley Brewer as well ?(I actually would forgive them)

    Libs/leftists can have honour
    ..some have in past proved honour by speaking against the mob on climate, and very belatedly calling out grooming gangs
    But on May 25th they all failed the honour test
    ..They did not behave like Samaritans they instead chose to join the mob hurling stones.
    Proving themselves Fake-Liberals

    Bbc did report this but then try to wriggle out by talking about Sophie and Sophia…. anyway – it is true.. they chose pictures of young clean shaven Mohamed Muktar Jama Farah CBE and Muhammad Ali to make their point

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-45638806

    Muhammad is the UKs most popular name not Oliver
    7300 to 6300 new born

    Oliver held its position as the most popular boys’ name since 2013, topping the 2017 list with 6,259 babies, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

    A number of readers asked whether adding together all of the different spellings of Muhammad would mean more babies were given that name than Oliver.

    Muhammad, spelt that way, was the 10th most popular name for baby boys in 2017 – with 3,691 babies given that name in England and Wales.

    However, if we combine 14 different spellings – Muhammad, Mohammed, Mohammad, Muhammed, Mohamed, Mohamad, Muhamad, Muhamed, Mohamud, Mohummad, Mohummed, Mouhamed, Mohammod, Mouhamad – we get 7,307 boys.
