      I expect the BBC to put mr Rees Mogg on TV more now that he has shown himself to be a windbag politician like the rest – one minute saying no need to pay the €39 000 000 000 000 bribe now saying we can pay monthly during the 2 year exit process .

      For those wanting Blighty to actually leave the ReichEU – our only hope seems to be the DUP- I think it would take more that money to bribe them this time . Personally I d like all the pain delivered soon – an inevitable General Election and god knows what comes after that

        First, congratulations to Jake. Has the BBC mentioned the 191 journalists currently jailed in Turkey? Journalists arrested after the “coup” was 245 but only 191 are still rotting in prison. With Turkish prisons reputation, it must be assumed some of them are already deceased. It’s fascinating that the worlds press only cares about one journalist and all the rest can go hang and probably will. I can understand the problem as they would have to type “arrested Turish Journalists” on a google search to get the full list including their arrest dates and what prisons thay are currently in. Searches are difficult if you don’t want to find something.

        Three things I’d like to see in place prior to the next general election:
        – the revised constituency boundary changes
        – the reduction of the number of MPs
        – deselection of the traitors such as Mrs May, Soubry, Thornbury, Messrs Starmer, Clarke and the rest and the Conservative party candidate selection to be decided at local constituency level, not by their Central office.

    Why do the left seem to get all their way and if they don’t they riot or shout abuse at the rest of us. The far left bbc contribute to this by constantly running news articles that are clearly biased or they delibretely leave some news out if they think it shows the right perspective as actually a good thing which often it is actually.

    As I was wandering the web I came across a well written article discussing how the liberal left have no tolerance for anyone who doesn’t agree with them. That is despite the left preaching to us all that we have to tolerate all the things we don’t like such as the Muslim invasion of Europe and our useless prime minister. The left and BBC are complete hypocrites.

      Fair article but the question asked about the behaviour of The Far Left is easily answered – they believe they are on the Highest Moral Ground -all must comply . Non compliance means the person lacks morality and must be educated . There is the role of the BBC . They see that original Reithian mission statement – can’t remember the words – to still be intact .
      The sad thing is that people who know better -such as those who write here – are in a minority – and the kidults don’t know any better .

      I keep trying to work out where all this is going but can’t get there – is it just the new normal ?

      One bit the article did get wrong was that it says the EU has only recently gone for closer union – it was there from day one lurking like a monster which has grown as the number of victim member states has grown .

      Unless braver countries than ours stops it it is the US of Europe in 10 years .

        They way it is going is worrying. Us on the right of centre are tolerating more and more of what we don’t like while the left are getting more and more of what they want. It won’t end well.

        BBC article today shows how liberal and biased they are by keeping high on their news page about macron saying nationalism is a bad thing! Since when is it a bad thing to be proud of your country? If we weren’t nationalistic in the two wars we would all be speaking German now. Pathetic BBC

          “For your Tomorrow, we gave our Today”, read the vicar from the pulpit. Somberly all nodded.

          Yet, if those men had realised, that they were giving their “todays” for politicians of today, to give our “tomorrows” for Sharia in Europe and Britain , they would not have bothered.

          “Tomorrow” has now arrived. Lets hope the government heeds the plea of Asia Bibi and family, and grant them asylum, without caving to threats of murderous violence.

            It is a fact of human relations that if you dont listen to others, then others wont listen to you.

            So fat the left has had a clewar run in Britain, as the BBC is unchecked in lefty propaganda. But things are changing. In America, the the lefts propaganda machines are being harried by Pres Trump, with Fox helping.

            In Eastern Europe, the left is shunned, as their ideology led to the Gulag and worse. In Budapest they have a permanent exhibition of the evil of the left. Rightly, it mirrors the evil of the Holocaust.

            Post WWII, the left got way being examined, as all efforts were put in debunking Nazism. But Nazism parents are Marx and Marxism. Pres Trump has started the job, and that is why the left, Democrats, Labour etal, are squealing.

        The media cannot be relied on reporting on Pres Trump. Its quite likely that the Security detail, or the president’s chief of staff advised the president against the visit. It would be foolish for the president to ignore such advice. Particularly in a country such as France, where a low level civil war is in progress.

        Can anyone imagine the consequences if “something” had happened. Of course the left would have been delighted , crowed all the way. But there are consequences, and the left has shown time and time again, while supporting Hitler, Stalin, Mao and even the ayatollah, and then found that the revolution eats its children. France, as in WW1 and 2, would pay dearly. Its paying anyway.

          The reason President Trump didn’t attend the ceremony must have been serious because he likes to be at public events; his tireless campaigning during the mid-term elections is testimony to that. But he also knows when not to be the main story; if he had gone to the event and something bad happened it would have overwhelmed the news coverage of the memorial services. That’s the statesmanlike behaviour that President Trump shows and why he’ll be remembered by history as one of the good guys.

            What is not well known is that Jihad can become legal against a nation when that nation prevents the expansion of Islam. As Western European nations have no such policy, Jihad has to be justified on the basis of self-defence.

            Pres Trump though has directed that no persons from seven predominantly nations can be allowed to enter America. This means that any Muslim can attempt to murder Pres Trump, with Islamic right and justification on his side.

            As France is in a state of war at the moment ( literally so), Pres Trump’s life is in danger in France. This means that his security will not allow Pres Trump to go on outings which have been made public. That is why I believe his outings make no sense whatever. They are unpredictable. Deliberately so.

            What about in America. Pres Trump is safe from Jihadi attacks in America, for any such act against him would lead to the extinction of Islam in America. Any attempt on his life in Muslim nations, by the same measure, carries the risk of the annihilation of that nation. The safety of Islam and its growth comes first.

            Therefore I believe Pres Trump’s life is in greatest danger when he is in non-Muslim nations outside America. Britain is a high risk country for Pres Trump.

              Trump cannot expect protection in Europe. Only a couple of weeks ago the leader of an Austrian (far far far right) party was unable to speak at the Oxford Union – one of our most prestigious debating chambers – because of lack of security. France is being invaded with a predicted surrender to forces hostile to Trump. There would be no security. Trump was wise to stay away and should have announced that Macron needs to re-conquer his own capital before expecting a US Presient to attend events in his shithole.

                Good points.

                Now why would Macron and the EU, want an independent EU defence force capable of deterring Russia, China and the USA?

                The only scenario is if France along with Germany are taken over by Islam. Then the nuclear missiles of France and the industrial power of Germany are available to the caliphate.

                No way will Russia, China and the USA will allow a nuclear armed Islamic EU . Include Israel in that alliance.

And all this with a background of Tucker having his house attacked, and daughter verbally abused in public. They took down Bill O’Reilly, tried with Hannity, now it’s Tucker’s turn.

            These hypocrites s, including the conservatives in the UK, have colluded in putting Europe in far greater danger then if we had lost to the Nazis. Europe is going to submit to Sharia, and the only one standing against that catastrophe is Pres Trump.

            So here they are, virtue signalling of their loyalty to Western civilisation, having sold out and betrayed Western civilisation to Islam. And where were they while tens of thousands of young girls , probably the great grand daughters of fallen soldiers, were being mass gang raped in Europe and Britain for decades – no where to be seen.

            At least Pres Trump is fighting for Western civilisation, unlike the traItors who virtue signal by the size of their poppies.

          Even experienced BBC reporters are commentating on the unpredictable nature of the president’s itinerary, and putting it down to Pres Trump’s insanity – which fits in with their bias and derangement. I believe this is not Pres Trump’s doing. Besides he does not have the time to think up such things.

          Its far more likely that Pres Trump’s itinerary is dictated by his security. When his security requests something, its not a request but an order that cannot be refused. The sheer unpredictability is in itself an indication that it is planned. Which means that the French and US security services have information they are not revealing.

    Most will probably remember the story the BBC put out at the start of the month headlined Trump: Third of Americans see media as ‘enemy of the people’. The problem with this is Trump said no such thing.

    As the article itself states near the end, what he actually said was “And that’s why thirty-three percent of the people in this country believe the fake news is in fact, and I hate to say this, in fact the enemy of the people.” [my emphasis]

    I made a complaint to the BBC but, having been made aware that others who have complained have been told the headline is not misleading, expect little. What I have been surprised about is that I have not yet received the expected raspberry already delivered to others. In fact I have now been told I may not receive a reply within the normal two week limit because “it has been referred to the relevant people”. With a cheeky demand that I not contact them in the meantime.

    Two questions are begged. First, what is the normal process of dealing with complaints if not initially referred to the relevant people? Referral to the department of dismissive blowbacks? I can’t answer that one. Second, what is special about my complaint that it hasn’t yet received the dismissive blowback? I can only think of one thing. Anticipating the likely default response, in my complaint I noted that one could only claim the headline not to be misleading if fake news and the media were one and the same. Perhaps they are struggling with claiming one whilst not admitting to the other.

    I shall keep the site informed of progress.

      Although Pres Trump had to be there I bet he didn’t want to be. California is burning – just for one – and he has just had an election . And comments about “European armies “ potentially to confront Russia or america can’t have helped – nor the nonsense about Nationalism being a bad thing when mr trumps favourite line is “ America first “ and meaning it.

      PS – could you imagine if there was a town in California called ‘Rome ‘ and the fire got to it. ?

    On the whole I think the BBC has broadcast quite well today on Radio 4 about the Remembrance . Normal sneering can start tomorrow because it will be twelve of November , a date they say I must have bought a TV licence by then or they will start investigations .
    Funnily enough I haven’t bought a TV licence .
    I’m glad they will never put TV Licensing Man Investigates as a film , opera or mini series because it would be a more boringly predictable than their so called radio comedies .

    One more thing on the beeb’s “Forgotten Muslim soldiers of World War One ‘silence’ far right”, where we hear from east London schoolgirl Daleesha Naz who learned that “400,000 Muslims fought in the British Indian army and it has made me feel closer and more connected to British history.”

    Now I could be wrong, but I’d put that quote firmly in the category of “things 14 year-old girls never say without a heavy prompt from someone behind the scenes.” Sure enough, it’s been cribbed from ‘Remember Together’ — an initiative from British Future and the Royal British Legion. Tagline: “Remembrance belongs to all of us.” (In fact, this follows the remarkably similar looking 2013 campaign: “Do Mention The War”.)

    British Future call themselves “an independent, non-partisan thinktank seeking to involve people in an open conversation, which addresses people’s hopes and fears about identity and integration, migration and opportunity…” Well sure, if your idea of open conversation is to exclusively feature Muslims. Wide-ranging mission statements are laughably deceptive. Their 7min showreel focuses on:

    – Refugee Jubilee Street Party
    – #WeAreAllEngland campaign (endorsed by the Blackburn-based Abu Hanifah Foundation)
    – Poppy hijab
    – AJ Faizy Week (an Afghan refugee)
    – Political Engagement: Why Enoch Was Wrong
    – A Very English Islam
    – And… er… and lots of pro-EU messaging

    I recommend watching the videos below to see what this country’s future looks like. To call it inclusive is utterly fraudulent. No other religious/ideological group features. “Independent, non-partisan and engaging in open conversations about Britain’s future” — just so long as it’s about Muslims, Islam and Muslims. And Islam.

    Sounds just like the BBC.

    As with so much BBC output it turns out the problem is not the Muslim…it’s the Jew or the Whitey or the Hindu.

    Is the BBC biased? has done the heavy lifting [as far as I’m concerned] and watched Dr Who with its rainbow cast and political messaging…the latest episode? ‘Demons of the Punjab’…turns out it’s the Hindus who are the baddies not the murderous Muslims who stole a State and caused millions to run for their lives and 1 million to die…..as The Independent explains…

    ‘The Time Lord’s latest adventures have set phasers to “educate and inform”….There is one clear villain amid the morass – Prem’s [Hindu] hardline brother Manish (Hamza Jeetooa). He is unable to countenance his family joining Muslims through matrimony and wants Umbreen vanquished to Pakistan…..The real bugbear, it is revealed, is violent nationalism.’

    Ah yes…nationalism…just more BBC open borders propaganda. Childish, naive stuff.

    The Guardian sums it up too……Hindu anti-Muslim prejudice…

    ‘So once again, the big bad is prejudice itself, here in the form of Prem’s tantrummy little brother Manish, who has spent too long “reading pamphlets and listening to angry men on the radio,” causing him to move into extremism. Unable to countenance his Hindu brother marrying a Muslim, he shoots the poor Holy Man due to bless the ceremony, sparking the fear of the phantom alien invasion that was never coming. ‘

    Ah yes, another BBC message…. the ‘ the phantom alien invasion that was never coming’…have no fear children, the myth of the Muslim invader is just that, a myth put about by nasty white nazis.

    So Hindus are the real ‘Demons’ in the Sub-Continent in the BBC narrative in all its news programming…they hate Modi and accuse him of being a ‘nationalist’…which we all know is code for Nazi.

    Never mind, the BBC is here to fix things as they set themselves up as guardians of the universe…or at least the media world as they seek to become the arbiters of truth, deciding what is and is not ‘fake news’…..Dr Who, What, Where, When, Why.

    The BBC has set up a programme of interference in local affairs in foreign climes and will be the self-proclaimed judge and jury as to what is true and what is not…..

    ‘The Beyond Fake News season is telling stories from across the globe, including India, where the sharing of fake news about child abductions on WhatsApp led to mob murders; Brazil, where bots have been hijacking discourse across the political spectrum; and Africa, where online warriors are attempting to manipulate democratic processes.’

    Note this bit of over-reach by a news organisation….

    ‘The BBC Reality Check team will deliver daily verification and fact checking during the Indian elections next year. We are training media partners in Nigeria to ensure they can use verification techniques and hold politicians to account during elections in February.’

    Is that really what the BBC is here to do? A very dangerous move, highly political….and it ends with journalists in jail…as with Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe who is in an Iranian prison because she trained Iranian journalists to ‘hold politicians to account’ in order to undermine the regime, to change political behaviour and alter political outcomes via the BBC’s Media Action unit. How does the BBC think that is any different to Putin interfering in the US elections because he doesn’t like the US political system? The BBC can’t attack him and Russia whilst engaging in the same thing themselves, including of course their own interference in the US elections as they targeted Trump remorselessly and still do two years on.

    Had to laugh when I saw this explanation of how to spot fake news…..

    ‘Amol Rajan is the BBC’s media editor and was previously editor of the Independent newspaper.

    Let me tell you how I decide whether or not I can trust a news source. First of all, have they shown a commitment to accuracy over a long period of time? Have they consistently got things right?

    And the second thing – which is related – is: do they admit when they get things wrong? You know, if you put your hand up and say ‘Sorry, I made an error, there were factual mistakes in the piece that we published’, then people like me are much more likely to believe you when you say another time that you got things right.

    So that’s Jon ‘The Beauty’ Sopel definitely marked as a purveyor of fake news as he never admits what we will charitably call his mistakes rather than deliberately misleading lies and black propaganda….he prefers to block people who hold him to account for his tripe.

    Many thanks to Mark Easton and his BBC chums who advocate open borders and a ‘let ’em all in’ policy for the gang warfare, a drug epidemic sweeping the country and murder upon our streets.

    Most drug gangs are run by immigrants and these gangs are spreading rapidly across the country as they seek new markets in towns and cities up and down the nation.

    Of course with so many of its own staff being drug snorting do-gooders the BBC doesn’t want to admit the truth…that not only their drug habits but their stupid and dangerous promotion of mass immigration and open borders is killing kids and our society….‘John Coles, head of special operations at the National Crime Agency, has said gangs’ drug activities “are in part fuelling the surge in violent crime in London.”’

      Meanwhile the bbc leads with a splash about disagreements of chequers at chequers. Well I remember comments like that at the time so can’t see why it’s news now .

      Full UK brexit looking more likely now . So that nasty little Irish PM can start planning to send his Army to the border when order to do so by the Reich EU . Maybe it’s their turn to fight republican terrorists this time .

    Guest who, I have an idea. As we strive to keep the site relatively clean, let’s rather link to foul content (if it is really necessary) with a warning attached so people can decide for themselves whether or not to go there – and not simply plonk it on this site.

    The fact that it’s copied and pasted in from another source obviously doesn’t lessen the impact of foul language on those who object to it.

        Guest Who,

        Not arbitrary. I put the comment at the (then) end of the thread because I thought it might get lost as a reply to you way up where your post appeared.

        A warning is obviously no good if the offending article appears in all its glory on the thread rather than as a url.

        I’m indebted to Roland Deschain below for pointing out that a Twitter link will appear as is. I don’t use Twitter and have little idea of how it works.

        Perhaps you can find another way to direct readers to foul-language tweets – one that is one step removed from seeing the tweets here.

        I don’t enjoy this kind of editing and it distracts me from the main purpose here – to challenge and expose the BBC as it goes from bad to worse.

        I chose to help with the editing when David Vance requested it and so I’m going to have to delete that tweet.

      As you may have seen someone called ID took personal exception to my editing and warning about the use of bad words . ID has thankfully voluntarily gone elsewhere to troll some other victim.

        I have seen a few tweets on the site over the past week or so containing language that is likely to seriously prejudice this site – if it becomes the norm. So you are right – such posts will just have to be deleted.

    Two events of the last week fill me with horror. We see the US mid terms giving a distinct up tick to the fortunes of the Dems and the British government refusing to offer asylum to a persecuted Christian woman because they are scared of the reaction of Muslim in the UK . This latter decision was met with little protest from the MSM and virtual total silence from the usual protest groups who would fill the airwaves with their demented howling if she hadn’t been a Christian.
    I have followed politics in the US since the 2016 election. The MSM is extremist in its hatred of Trump and uses distortion, suppression and lying on a daily basis. It’s on a par with the BBC. Although increasing numbers of Americans distrust their own media there are still millions who are influenced by this ultra Globalist media and were conned into voting against their own best interests. The MSM is still a power in the land and if alternative sources of news continue to be shut down by the Globalist Silicon Valley they will remain so. This is perhaps the biggest threat to democracy that there has ever been because it could lead to worldwide Globalist control of the news agenda and abolition of any other sources of news.
    As to our own Government , I think that their performance over this poor woman tells us exactly how far the Muslim invasion has already undermined our country. Things will only get worse and rapidly so as their numbers grow. We are so far down the road to an Islamic Britain that there is no longer any prospect of avoiding this awful calamity . I am genuinely sad for young people , particularly girls, who will see the world closing in on them . These youngsters may in part the authors of their own misfortune , but they have been conned into this by an unholy alliance of cynical Global capitalists and the dangerous Intenational leftists.

Also as part of our Beyond Fake News series, we look at what constitutes fake news and how you can spot it.

      ‘How I discovered my husband’s sex obsession’

      I was ashamed of what had happened. I wondered what people would think when I told them, what they’d think of my husband, what they’d think of me. I assumed people would judge our marriage and think it was a sham. I also felt people would think I hadn’t been good enough for him, not pretty enough, not sexy enough.

    For a textbook illustration of MSM Trump Derangement Syndrome you couldn’t do much better this morning than Nick Ferrari on LBC.

    He was harping on about Trump’s non-appearance at the US war cemetery. Many callers pointed out that the decision on flying a military helicopter wouldn’t be the President’s. Ferrari just carried on as if they hadn’t said a thing. It didn’t fit into his world therefore didn’t exist.

    It’s actually becoming worrying how the media as a pack will grab on to a narrative and not let go even in the face of reality.

    When you listen to remoaners banging on with their anti Brexit catchphrases (like, “nobody knew what they were voting for”) do you think their newspeak could be used in everyday language.
    When they leave home in the morning to go do work do they ‘Crash out’ (of their front door)
    If they decide to change Banks (EU) from one they’ve been with for the last 40 years, (getting 0.1% interest) and go to look at the many other banks offering much better rates (WTO) do they ‘Go over the cliff’ or maybe ‘Crash out over a cliff’
    They are a pathetic lot really.

    Earlier comments are wondering why us Leavers are not making much noise and letting the remoaners have everything their way.
    I’m reminded of the Kipling poem Beginnings which I’ve seen here before. It’s the one with the line ‘When the English begin to hate’
    I think that’s where we are heading.
    May, the remainer, with her remainer Cabinet in a remainer government supported by the remainer media and lots of rich landowners are getting all their own way at this moment where the EU gets everything it asks for, Banks it, then comes back for more which May willingly gives away.
    Whether it’s Fish, single market, customs union, CAP, ECJ, immigration and everything else, May has given them everything, plus £39 billion and continuing to pay yearly payments for a crap (sorry Fedup) deal which nobody is happy with except May and Oily.

    I don’t feel any hate. I would simply like to see May and her Remainer cabinet go, as they are failures. Very dishonest failures. That is a dispassionate assessment made in the head, not the heart.
    There is no need for a General election: Labour didn’t have a General election when they decided Blair needed replacing with Brown. They would simply sell us out with even more duplicity and we would probably end up with full membership of the EU, minus the right to vote or decide on anything. The Conservative Party needs to elect a new leader, who then elects a new cabinet.
    If all that means no ‘deal’, that’s fine with me too.
    We have a Brexit mess because dishonest, double-dealing politicians have been playing a dangerous game of deception– against their own country.
    I suspect the ‘negotiations’ were theater all along; the louder the proclamations that Brexit was Brexit, and would be implemented, the more we knew they were lying.
    I would have preferred UKIP to be dealing with the negotiations, as the only genuine leavers. Since that-alas-is not possible, the Conservative Party need to sort themselves out, and quickly.
    The basis for this has to be the departure of May. That is the only thing I would say, is NOT up for negotiation.

    True Too – in the spirit of polite exchange I respond here, as in addition to a few other points you have made (possibly inadvertently), replying to someone elsewhere can be confusing to them and others. Anyone seeking to find out what I am now talking about needs to backtrack until they find what you wrote.

    I referenced a piece by a BBC luvvie evidently proud of the ‘cut through to da yoof’ of a potty mouth. It is unnecessary and reflects badly upon them. However, ‘sticks and stones’, etc. That the BBC seems cool with those they pay doing this, is between them, their employee and those who uniquely fund it all.

    Equally anyone on this site resorting to crudity can weather what comes their way, in terms of the opinion of others or, censure by the site owner(s) and designated editor(s).

    Life is seldom black and white, so much is in shades of grey. Hence ‘grey’ areas, and ‘conventions’ rather than hard and fast rules. If Jeremy Corbyn wants to stand at the Cenotaph in a mankini he is free to do so. In the buff, likely less so. Equally the use of bad language. If the state broadcaster tolerates it everywhere, it is hard to see how a private online site can be held accountable, though of course establishment hypocrisy is now the rule (ironically) vs. exception.

    I recall a while ago several senior BBC editors appeared to have problems with the name of the (then) health secretary though, oddly, not that of a Labour colleague in the House across the dispatch box. It was discussed and rightly mocked here, and the word was used. A lot. However I coined the term to describe it I use to this day: NaughtieMarr; especially when another BBC employee falls victim to the same temporary, selective outbreak of Tourettes.

    I sympathise with your ideals, but regret to say that on any forum discussing news and politics, staying chaste in pointing out rampant abuses in word and deed is frankly impossible. Sometimes to judge the offence, the jury needs to be presented with the evidence.

    Now FE2 has excised what I shared, who now beyond early posters has a clue what is going on, and what Tony Robinson felt comfortable posting in public forum?

    I do not condone using customarily accepted obscenities as part of everyday communication, even if conveying extreme frustration, but getting Victorian on actual substantiated examples is a chaste move too far, especially when inviting thoughts and debate on the topics the BBC too often inspires.

    With this in mind, with all due warning to not look further (if you have, you have sought offence first and I can help no further), I attach a recent tweet from Tucker Carlson, about the latest in events taking place from certain quarters in the USA that the BBC either seeks to avoid, if not ignore or condone. I think it needs seeing, and sharing.

    If because of it this post here is removed, so be it. But it will be a pity, and perhaps send a worse message to those who seek to capitalise on flawed systems poorly overseen by those they wish to silence. Ironically.

    And the recent flouncer will have the satisfaction of knowing theirs was a job well done.

      This is a worthwhile discussion – up to a point! but i think that it is enough now. The site should be about BBC bias.

        Lynette / stew – following my attempt to keep this site reasonably clean I’ve been watching closer than I wanted to as well as using my own time .
        Some people just need to challenge authority – even if it’s a volunteer editor like me . There have been 2 posts in the last 24 hours which have included the c word . I tried to edit them but knew that they couldn’t be and considered taking the whole post into the trash can . So far I haven’t but the use of such words has to be controlled .

        I don’t want to battle it every day but I will .

          I agree totally. I’m considering posting above the line on this language issue to try to resolve it once and for all.

      One of the downsides of us leaving the EU is that unless UKIP start winning seats in the HoC, we will be losing the services of good UKIP men and women MEPs. And the dross that currently occupies the benches in that den of iniquity will still be there.

    9am Radio 4 STW was pushing the narrative that “Far-right” groups had conned normal people into marching in a Nationalist march.
    The prog called them neo-Nazis
    AFAIK the march was a government organized one, which the opposition boycotted
    “Nazism (or neo-nazism) and its symbols are illegal in Poland”

      theisland,
      All those rejecting the Pact may well be escaping, but, the good news is that the 250 million odd ‘migrants’ that the UN identify as seeking a new homeland will now raise the number each remaining country has to take………………….
      I have written to my MP asking if she could obtain information from the Government and her Labour leadership as to what the Pact will mean for the UK and how much extra it will cost the taxpayer to fulfil the obligations Treezer has already signed up to.

      Come on, keep up….you know these countries are all fascistic….I know because I listen to the BBC. Only this morning they were telling us how Poland is in the grip of ultra nationalist neo-nazi fascists who hark back to a more golden age where there was stability, jobs and certainty. That golden age was? Err… Communism. Must be some mixed messages and muddled thinking there…and why then you may ask does the BBC not issue a similar health warning for the bearded, anorak wearing commie anarchist who wants to destroy NATO, sink Trident, sack the secret services, undermine the Military and destroy capitalism?

    Tumbleweed in the MSM as Australian PM rejects idea that the Somali immigrant attacker in Melbourne last week “had mental health issues and was not ‘really a terrorist’ and should be treated with some sympathy.” Also “community leaders should accept the attack was due in part to ‘extreme Islam’ that had radicalised Shire Ali.”

    Anything on the BBC? Sky? CNN? NYT? Nope.

    The Guardian though does chip in, albeit in its time-honoured tradition that comes from living in the Upside Down… “Terrorism experts admonish PM for ‘racist and simplistic’ claim that community leaders need to be more proactive in combating terrorism.”

    BBC REALITY …

    David Lammy
    Profile

    Tottenham MP David Lammy has been leading the parliamentary charge for the Windrush generation as they fight for their residency rights. Mark Coles charts the life and career of one of parliament’s most formidable campaigners.

    Born in North London to Guyanese parents, Lammy grew up in Tottenham but moved to Peterborough aged 11 after winning a council scholarship to the city’s cathedral boarding school. He went on to study law in London and at Harvard. Then, after a brief spell as a barrister, he became MP for his home borough of Tottenham at the age of just 27. His political career soon took off, with Tony Blair making him a minister in the New Labour government and Lammy was quickly hailed as ‘the Black Blair’ or ‘Britain’s Obama’. But not everything went smoothly for the junior minister.

    Since Labour went into opposition, Lammy has spent his time on the back benches. There, he’s found his political voice and passion as a defender of those he feels have been failed by the system – from the Grenfell fire victims, to working-class young people struggling to get into top universities, and now the Windrush immigrants. Alastair Campbell calls him “a good old-fashioned class warrior, in the best possible sense”.

    Mark Coles meets some of the people who know Lammy best – from childhood friends, former teachers and his beloved ‘Aunty May’ who firmly believes that, one day, her godson will be Britain’s first black Prime Minister.

    I see a couple who named their child after the murderous warlord who invaded, conquered and colonised so many other peoples’ countries forcing them to convert to his ‘religion’ at the point of a sword in most cases, and who had a whole Jewish tribe slaughtered by beheading, took sex slaves, pillaged and looted the riches from these countries and created a vicious ideology that traps its members within and urges death upon unbelievers, adulterers and gay people, has been found guilty of being members of a proscribed terror group.

    I may have got that wrong.

    Why is calling your kid after Adolf Hitler any different to calling him after a murderous 7th century warlord?

    Love this slight exaggeration…

    ‘Det Ch Supt Matt Ward, from West Midlands Police, said the defendants “were not simply racist fantasists; we now know they were a dangerous, well-structured organisation”.

    He added: “Their aim was to spread neo-Nazi ideology by provoking a race war in the UK, and they had spent years acquiring the skills to carry this out.

    “Unchecked, they would have inspired violence and spread hatred and fear across the West Midlands.”‘

    A few lunatics with a couple of knives, two crossbows and a swastika shaped pastry cutter….lol…what were they going to do? Maybe they were just super patriotic fans of The Great British Bake Off?

        LOL….‘A prominent peer told a woman “sleep with me and I will make you a Baroness”‘ I’m guessing Baroness Warsi did not get her elevation that way. Just convert to Islam and you will have a distinct advantage should you want your career to take off….want to be BBC economics editor? Seems de rigueur to be Muslim. Want to be BBC’s head of religious programming? Again it might be very, very helpful to be Muslim. Similarly chair of the Tory party.

        Similarly if you want to promote some pro-Muslim propaganda on the BBC…it helps to be Muslim…and a Baroness….even if you are an Islamist entryist….

        Still whinging though…

      Reference G’s post above at 3.41
      Was being driven in the Eastern Cape some months ago in order to visit a Game Reserve.
      On the way back to our accommodation, we passed a township with a grotty gravel road leading up to it.
      ‘That is my community’ said our friendly driver.
      ‘ you’d think, after 25 years, that the ANC could give you a bit of Tarmac’ we said.

      I don’t know whether the penny dropped but I think there was a pregnant pause. This little vignette re-inforced my view that the ANC need to keep the poor blacks poor, yet persuade them that the blame lies with the old white community.

      Here and there, among aspirational blacks, the deceit is recognised. But it’s a slow process.
