    Good one Taffman – if only the late maxi could share your victory but I think he might be getting ready to cheer comrade Corbyn s ‘go back to your constituencies and prepare for government ‘ speech…

    I am not second as that would be cheating

    I learn from Al Beeb that Corbyn is going to create thousands of jobs. If we are already in full employment where are all the workers coming from ? Mass immigration? We are already full.

    Labour are loosing support of the ordinary working Brit living out side of Londonistan. Labour has become a circus full of clowns. I am an ex Labour voter , now voting for UKIP.

    All week different Labour types have been interviewed and saying’ let me be perfectly clear, we respect the referendum result but we need a peoples vote on the deal’. In other words Labour want to remain and leave. The Beeb seem to think this perfectly rational.

    ‘Our dear leader Corbyn’ is promising 410,000 green jobs.
    That’s 410,000 more people needed to produce the same amount of power, but in a different way.
    Their creation would reflect a significant reduction in productivity.
    Since almost all green jobs are SUBSIDISED jobs, and there are no unicorns to pay the subsidies, that means we all pay increased costs… So will buy less stuff..so jobs will be reduced in other areas.

    Extra insulation is the one thing that can be cost effective, but governments have always preferred to push expensive gimmicks instead like windfarms, solar panels, smart meters, electric cars etc.

    Lefty or Lazy ?

    BBC London news warn us this morning of an uncoming tube strike by the RMT. This will be disruptive and inconvenient – you know, causing the sort of ‘frictions’ which the BBC so fear on behalf of the ‘business community’ as a result of Brexit. I digress. Getting back on track, one tends to rely on the BBC to tell us what this strike is all about. Instead all we get is the statement that this strike is a result of a:

    “breakdown in industrial relations”

    Surely this is almost the definition of a tautology. What are the BBC hiding? A short google search tends to bring up only left-leaning newspaper reports and yet it does reveal an interesting item – the RMT’s own press release:

    https://www.rmt.org.uk/news/piccadilly-line-strike-action-goes-ahead2509/

    And blown me down, we discover the very phrase:

    “breakdown in industrial relations”

    Dear Winston Smith at the BBC Complaints Department,

    When interviewing Labour supporters and MPs can you ask them who is in the Few and Many camp when they say “For the Many, Not the Few”?

    I ask this because if the red line For the Few is wages then Jeremy Corbyn could be one of the Few and not the Many when he’s on £77K if the Few red line is £20K for example.

    If it is based on homes then Keith Vaz with his multiple homes (some on expenses) might be one of the Many who own multiple homes. . . .

    “For the Many, Not the Few” – Labour spokes person or even Jeremy Corbyn.

    “Can you tell me how you define who is in the Many and who is in the Few please?” – BBC Presenter.

    Cheers,

    The second story on the World Service 5am news bulletin was about someone reporting ‘hate speech’ on Facebook and it not being followed up.

    Then we have the epic scoop, which radio 4 has also covered, about how eating fruit and vegetables is good for you.

    Political correctness really is AIDS for the mind, ravaging critical faculties like HIV does to the immune system. Just as fantastically talented young men would be laid low by a mere common cold, here we have a lavishly funded broadcaster with global reach and the power and wherewithal to do pretty much anything but instead they report on nonsense like this.

    They want to silence the alternative media but until they are cured of this infection the sinking ship of the MSM will be abandoned by more and more people. We want bold, engaging and interesting content not cowardly, repetitive and mind-numbingly tedious garbage like this. Their first thought with everything is: ‘Will this offend anyone?’ Truth, fun and all those other ‘Far right’ concepts are barely considered.

    Forgive the repost – missed the new thread (not first)

    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.

      Yes, I noticed that. The BBC avoided answering its own question:

      The answer, BBC, is yes.

        Was going to mention this story but my tedious calculations meant that Gammon has beaten me to it. What I find most annoying about the Beeb’s coverage of this story is the fact that they try and diminish the sheer amount of Mo’s born by emphasising the totals of fourteen different spellings – when they really only needed to add the top three.

        Oliver came out at 6,259.

        Muhammad came out at 3,691.
        Mohammed came out at 1,982.
        Mohammad came out at 837.

        That makes 6,510 – they didn’t need to bother with the lesser spellings that got 450, 269, 30, 13, 11, 5, 5, 4, 4, 3 and 3 respectively – but I suppose fourteen different spellings sounds less demographically disastrous than a mere three.

            Wikipedia is wrong ? \\ It is also sometimes reported that Muhammad is the most popular boy’s name in all of Britain, however this is based on combining multiple spelling variations such as Mohammed, but not combining spelling variants of other popular British names such as Ollie and Olly//
            Claim \\ There’s a problem with the claim that various spellings of Muhammad makes it more popular than Oliver (as below). It doesn’t factor in variations of Oliver. Add in Ollie, Olly and Olivier and you find Oliver + variants remains most popular (7,368)//
            Oliver 6,259, Ollie 788 Olly 213 and Olivier 108

            Well Muhammad (14 spellings) 7,307
            You can add the further variation like Turkish spellings etc Mehmet
            Mo 3, Mehmet 37, Mehmed 4, Mahammed 3, Mahamed 9
            = 7,363

            oh look ” were 43 baby boys called Md in 2017″
            So ** 7,406 ** winner for Muhammad

            If I am right , that means the Wikipedia page is wrong , so one of you should edit it

            There are both hyphenated names for both Oliver and Muhammad
            Oliver-James 29
            Muhammad-Ali 17 Mohammed-Ali 4 Muhammed-Ali 3

                  and Olaf is old Norse
                  I see no proven connection
                  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olaf

                  He claims 9 from Olli
                  Likewise that is Finnish derived from old Norse Olaf

                  He also claim 19 from Oli, .. I wonder if most of those come an African language
                  Ah “Óli is a Faroese and Icelandic masculine given name.”

                  He did make a point that Mo could mean Morris ..that makes little difference as there are only 3 anyway.

                  Ah he just ran away
                  “Engaging in prolonged Twitter debate over whether Oli is related to Oliver illustrates the point that counting each spelling once is the fairest way, hence Oliver is most popular.”

              Since when are Oliver and Ollie the same name, anyway? If you’re given the name Oliver you could conceivably have the nickname of Ollie – but if you’re called Ollie you’re never going to be called Oliver. Whereas, no matter how you spell it, Muhammad and its variants are the same name with the same pronunciation – the spelling differences arise from the fact that Arabic is a phonetic language and that any spelling of it is an approximation.

    Anyone hear the friendly, jovial, knockabout between Toenails and Tom Watson on Toady this morning?
    Apparently this is known in some circles as an ‘interview’.
    Ha ha ha.
    Interesting technique. Toenails asks a series of what could be challenging questions (Brexit, antisemitism, calls for general strikes). To each question, Watson gives an answer, usually in a throwaway style, and then Toenails does not challenge but moves straight on to the next question.
    So there is no analysis, no probing and follow up, and the whole tone is jovial throughout.
    It is as if the participants are winking at each other and Watson has been briefed ‘ look, you know we have to ask you a few awkward questions but don’t worry, we won’t make it difficult’.
    I wonder if the bBBC will adopt the same light touch joviality to the Tories next week?

This concerns the launch of the IEA Brexit report – which the BBC smugly dismisses with the headline: “IEA Brexit report based on dubious maths” – heaven forfend they look too closely into Labour policy this week.

    At the press launch BBC News Channel told us that this alternative to May’s Chequers deal was “supported by some Conservative MPs”

    I noticed on the tv pictures of the presser a woman on the panel who looked suspiciously like Labour MP Gisela Stuart. And it was. Of course the BBC would be keen to airbrush Labour Leavers from the narrative.

And for some reason, the report also omitted this little gem when Wyatt said , “We know what this country has done to black men for centuries.” (and also compared Cosby to Christ).

    Presumably Robinson is going to enjoy having his taxes doubled to pay for stage 1 of labour’s Marxist agenda. I suspect that the rest is still hidden from us.

      most on Robinson’s income is probably hidden from us as well so its not going to come out of his pocket

      It’s not only unbelievable that Labour might be in Government soon. It’s unbelievable that they sit on the green benches as ‘Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition’.

    2015-03-05 The Times London
    “Labour ‘conspiracy let in 3.6m to create multicultural Britain’”
    “Immigration during Labour’s time in power boosted the UK population by 3.6 million, according to a report published today”

    This is the reason Labour has its current electoral support.
    Without the votes, frequently multiple votes, of these people, Corbyn would be on the Watford bypass, not as the BBC constantly claims, near Downing St.

    How many millions of crimes have been committed by these imports? All down to Labour.

      This is the pattern throughout, LCS. Ruthless, amoral and cynical people have found a way of artificially and illegally bolstering their voting support, and dressing it up as virtue. Or pretending it’s economic necessity. Or simply disguising it.
      Blair. Merkel. Obama. List goes on…
      The objective is a) to give conservatives one in the eye -as Blair put it (or something to that effect) and b) when you loathe, fear and despise your indigenous voters, cos they can put you out of office if you don’t deliver on ‘promises’, you need to replace them.
      PS. We Brexiteers need to be EXTREMELY vigilant. Our politicians will fast-track half the Commonwealth in here, in the event that we actually do leave the EU. Economic necessity, you know. And eliminating ‘world poverty’. I can hear them saying this is what ‘leavers’ wanted (fewer EU migrants), so that’s what they’re delivering. There was a very interesting interview re this on the R4 news at 10 last night, when R Shah questioned some professor from Birkbeck college.
      Put NOTHING past them.

    The BBC might wet their pants with excitement at the labour conference but what they are witnessing is a cult and its supporters. There is mention of Nuremberg in this thread . Of course the Nazis were a cult. Cults are almost invariably evil.
    What cult has a leader who refuses live interviews , brainwashes and takes over the lives of its adherents and relies on taking a large chunk of people’s income? Why Corbynism of course.. but also Scientology.

    I’m beggining to wonder if it might be worth giving the BBC, snowflake and lifelong Labour voters their wish and vote in Corbyn McDonnell Abbott and all the rest of the absolute jokes that make up Labour so they can see what a bloody mess Blighty would become when run by marxists.It might be fun watching the beeb telling us what a success Jeremy is everyday as it obviously falls apart.

      Never mind Corbyn. Could you live with several years of Abbott as Home Secretary? My imagination is unable to even go there.

    I know I’m old, and the young shall inherit the earth, but watching the news channels at these party conferences is like watching ‘schools out’ !

    Currently Adam Boulton is interviewing a couple of 12 year olds -one of whom is glottal stopping her way through the chat (she doesn’t realise there is a T in the alphabet) and its dispiriting to hear and watch. Complete airheads who should be on work experience.

    We have lost the age of big beasts of any political party, and for me anyway, whether one agreed with their politics or not, at least the politicians of decades ago had ‘gravitas’ instead of the CBBC variety we have now.

    overwhelming majority in our country

    The most recent Census in 2011 highlights that in England and Wales, 80 per cent of the population were white British. Asian (Pakistani, Indian, Bangladeshi, other) ‘groups’ made up 6.8 per cent of the population; black groups 3.4 per cent; Chinese groups 0.7 cent,Arab groups 0.4 per cent and other groups 0.6 per cent.

    overwhelming majority in our country

    Is Labour recycling policies? Nick Robinson asks Shadow Business Secretary, Rebecca Long-Bailey, why Labour’s plan to create 400,000 ‘green’ jobs is the same as Ed Miliband’s promise in 2008.

    Comments (not many in 5 hrs) seem mixed, between screaming Mo-bots defending the honour of a peroxide sink who makes Katty seem like Einstein, and some trying to find out either what she was on, what she was talking about or who she gets her talking points from.

    Not asked and thus answered.
