We might as well forget the Far Left BBC approach to the Brexit mess for a while and look at the other areas of BBC bias -there are plenty .

      However if we still value our democracy we may have to hit the streets at some point. Arm Chair warrioring is all well and good, but I think the elite need to realise that just maybe they may well be playing with fire when they so blatantly rip us off of, of what I consider our birthright.
      I may be fat and in my 50s but I still have a pretty good right hand.

        The fat lady was in Chemnitz today, admitting that her face might be ‘polarising’, as can be seen on YT. It took her three months to get there after a certain murder, which is pretty fast, considering it took her a year to demonstrate any sympathy for the victims of Germany’s first large-scale terror attack.
        Then again, it takes time to organize security for someone who is not very popular in the old East Germany. When she visited Dresden recently, I noticed she got into one of a dozen similar-looking, rapidly-departing Audis to escape after a function, quite a few police snipers visible on rooftops.
        One would almost think police felt the locals there might have mistaken her for a commie.

        Oaknash, it’s been a long time since I commented on here, even though I visit daily, but this weeks events have encouraged me to “reconnect” with UKIP (long time member). Hopefully, there’s more out there who would join, or re-join. That could be the beginning of a movement to “hit the streets”, under the UKIP banner?

          I would have thought this is the opportune moment for parliamentary no-confidence letter writers to join UKIP, where -political theory would dictate- they should find a natural home (as the only party where ‘leave’ really means ‘leave’)…as in ‘now’/without further delay. That would send a message to all ‘the people’ who are ‘so uncertain’.
          Alas, I’m not holding my breath.

      If Mrs May succeeds in getting that den of iniquity, the HoP, to approve her treacherous proposals, then I suggest a future government will have to declare UDI from the EU. If it comes to that, let’s hope it is declared before the EU cabal have an army in place, which will no doubt be used to put down the insurrection in the UK, probably with the assistance of the fifth columnists and quislings in our midst.

      I hope that Mr Rees-Mogg et al recognise that theirs is an existential battle for the future of our country as a free and independent nation. And they have to win.

        john- if you think about it, UDI is really the appropriate term, even though the Rhodesia episode may have tainted the concept.
        Wanna leave the EU? You tell them you’ve left, remove problematic domestic legislation chop-chop, and send in a team to sort out any practical problems arising.
        What you don’t do is ask the EU for permission to leave (like they’re going to approve the start of their own demise!), negotiate within a framework devised largely by Barnier’s deputy, Sabine Weyand (who told the media that this thing is gonna work according to EU rules!), and fob the voters off by endlessly repeating the politician’s favorite: ‘in the National Interest’ (code for: I stay in power here).
        Merkel remains the ‘master’ of staying put: she got the legitimation for that down to one word, after she illegally removed German borders: ‘alternativlos’ – without alternative. Ms May has learnt a great deal from Merkel, but there is still more to learn. Maybe ‘Brexit means Brexit’ was also alternativelos.

      SG,
      Came across this from, “Full Fact is the UK’s independent fact checking autority”. Mmmmmm. Their Report on, “Tackling missinformatio in an Open Society” does not permit the reader to search the whole document for a word or term – unfortunately. https://fullfact.org/media/uploads/full_fact_tackling_misinformation_in_an_open_society.pdf#page=4&zoom=auto,-82,46
      It deals solely with every ‘information’ contributor EXCLUDING the internet so, it will include all UK MSM and the BBC. Well, it should. My scan through the document reveals NO reference to the BBC, our leading misinformation broadcaster.
      So, how impartial is Full Fact? As a registered Charity, the body has, unlike the BBC, to comply fully with the objectives of the Charity for that status to continue.
      If anyone finds condemnation of the BBC in the Report, I’ll take it all back. I don’t expect to hear from other contributors ……….

    The MP’s former campaigns and communications manager said she visited his house on 24 July and spent no less than two hours discussing the “nitty gritty” of a charity lease.

    He said he could not give a specific time but said it had been “quite late” and she had arrived in her car alone.

    The court has heard Ms Onasanya was sent a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) after her car was clocked in Thorney, near Peterborough, at 22:03 BST on 24 July.

    What a difference!

    Rotherham grooming gang are jailed for a total of 101 years after sexually assaulting young girls including victim who was ‘passed around by 100 Asian men’ by age of 16

    Gang exploited girls from troubled homes who ‘wanted to be loved’, court is told
    As with similar gangs, girls were given drink, drugs and ‘passed round’ the group
    Judge says gang carried out ‘cynical manipulation and exploitation’ of victims
    One vulnerable girl was raped by scores of men between the ages of 13 and 16

    A gang of six men has been jailed for a total of 101 years after sexually exploiting five vulnerable teenage girls in Rotherham.

    The men targeted girls who were ‘easy to exploit because they wanted to be loved’ – sexually abusing them in parks, abandoned buildings and secluded locations.

    The offences were committed against five girls under 16 in the Rotherham area between 1998 and 2005.

    Their abusers – all Asian men from Sheffield and Rotherham – were convicted of offences including rape and indecent assault.

    Oh will someone be arrested and jailed soon surely
    cos a new series 3 Huddersfield groom/rape gang trials has started in Leeds Court
    and someone has named 20 of the accused and photo’d them as they enter the court today

    30 accused : face 78 charges of rape, drug offences, sexual assault and child trafficking of five girls aged between 13 and 15
    5 are called Mohammed
    “Judge Phillips split the defendants into three sets of trials, the first of which will begin on September 9 next year.”
    “The third and final trial will then begin on April 20, 2020. The 10 defendants who will appear then cannot be named but they face numerous charges including rape, sexual assault, supplying drugs and trafficking.”

    So it seems that the BBC editorial pattern on the publication of the conviction of Pakistani Muslim rape gangs is this ;

    2 hours of pictures and names and basic details on the main site – no details of the nature of their evil crimes against young white girls

    Then to the national ( England ) site

    Then gradual relegation to a ‘side ‘ story – a mild headline – no pictures or names …

    Then by tomorrow – gone – never happened …

    This is clear evidence of the BBC ‘non storying ‘ facts which are detrimental to the Muslim ‘community ‘ which must be blessed by the higher levels of bbc management who presumably include wahabis pretending to have assumed civilised western culture …
    …. which is an approved technique of that medieval perverted sect .

    See what the pattern is on the next trial – we won’t have to wait long ….

    Just wanted to agree with comments above, especially those that expressed the desperate sense stronger measures are required to fix the current mess we are in.

    Maybe the ‘silent majority’ are just not the type to go around shouting on the street and being ‘active’ – unlike many vociferous groups who of course get their own way with tedious frequency nowadays even when out of all proportion to their actual popular support.

    Thank goodness at least we have alternative media because our frustration gets precious little mainstream expression. The ‘silent majority’ is indeed kept quiet. How can this ever change unless action is taken to redress the mass biased coverage?

    Meanwhile our beloved biased broadcaster leeches off the easy means of pushing their agenda, strengthening their grip on all they can brainwash. Faced with Mother Theresa’s Brexit (in name only) from a Conservative (in name only) government, they seem hysterical at any suggestion of a new government making no deal but remain only too happy to risk Corbyn’s commie goons taking over from the current goons.

    Perhaps this chronic outcome might just be what is necessary to wake up enough people to act. Maybe things get even worse before any chance they get better. Very worrying.

    Only three twenty three letters handed in so far. That’s less than half the number needed. My normally bubbly optimism (cough) is now replaced by a strong sense of gloom and doom.
    Last time I felt this bad was just before the Brexit vote when it looked like Project Fear would triumph.
    I got that wrong. But I was so pleased with the result. It revealed a fighting spirit that I thought the Brits had completely lost.
    Even from the start though, we knew that the establishment would try and stop it. Then came the appointment of Theresa May. I rewrote Lewis Carrolls “Jabberwocky” to outline my worst fears about the situation and I posted it on here.
    Alas! Nature imitated art and it was quite an accurate prophesy.

    May has betrayed a nation’s trust and revealed herself to be deceitful and most of the Tory party too. Not all, there are a few strong Brexiteers (unfortunately incompetents)
    An insurrection from the people doesn’t seem likely. All this talk of pitchforks and flaming brands is simply wishful thinking. Even the suggestion of changing the voting system from the abomination that has given the country a choice only between a traitorous, sharia compliant EU devotee and a jurassic , open borders Marxist does not appeal to a lot of would be pitchfork wielding dreamers.
    Taffman is right, people should be voting Ukip. In fact they should be joining. The party has a new fearless leader in Gerard Batten. He is clued up, competent and stable unlike the somewhat erratic Farage.
    What is more, and this should be appealing to people on this site,
    Ukip has a policy to scrap the BBC licence fee. No other party does.
    The fight to overrule the Brexit vote has been spearheaded by the BBC. The fight for Islamization has a powerful champion in the BBC.
    What progress has been made to rid us of this perversion of a public broadcaster since the Tories took office? Anybody?
    I’ll list the actions taken here to be fair.

    Got it?

      I am disappointed that there have not been much more letters as well. I did read this from the BBC however:

      ‘Senior placed Tory MPs are saying they have reached the magic 48 letters needed for a vote of confidence against Theresa May, but Sir Graham Brady – chairman of the 1922 committee – is giving precious little away.’

      https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-46230281

      Perhaps a calm before a much needed storm or being from the BBC is there more to it that thought? Brady is keeping things tight lipped for some reason.

      At the moment my only concern is that the gates for Downing Street have been left swinging open for Corbyn to sneak in and bankrupt us. I bet that the left love every minute of all this don’t they?

      If anything May should simply resign. If she loses the vote in Westminster then I hope that would push her to it so I actually hope for once that Labour vote against it along with everyone else but only if it does not lead to a GE. The left would love that.

      Needless to say that I am worried

    Time to play ‘find the story’.
    This morning, where is the Rotherham rape gang item on the BBC website?
    Important stuff, right, so it has to be on the home page? No. Wrong. Beaten by “students hit by wave of fake refund emails”. Gosh.
    So, it’s on the UK page, right? No. Beaten by “darts players accuse each other of farting”. Seriously.
    The England page? Yes, there we are, item no.8 just below “man banned for not running marathon”.
    There it is, our helpful BBC highlighting the horrific, systematic gang rape of our children by Muslim gangs, yet again shining a light on the darkest, most threatening corners of provincial England. If only.
    Now it’s time to play our next game.
    What time today will the BBC drop the Rotherham gang rapists from the England page and file them away in the South Yorkshire page? Going on it’s past record, I would guess by midday. Story shrunk. Whitewash applied. Job done.

    After Brexit part of the new policy to be implemented immediately should be to leave the UN. More billions devoted to our destruction.

    The UN is our enemy. It may almost be said that any organisation with international aims, names or ambitions, is the enemy of the UK. Of the West in general.

    Then the newly independent states can be told, “no more aid”.

    £50 billion per annum. I think I could bring down the EU with that in a couple of years. A necessary task made more pleasant by the foul nature of our enemies.

        I guess you are both aware what the UN have in store for us shortly in the form of the, UN Migration Compact? Treezer has already signed us up for the next avalanche of migrants which has the potential to render incoming numbers to date (EU & World) insignificant.
        2.8 mins long so, let the UN speak for itself:

          G -it is a great shame that we are now so preoccupied with Brexit (understandibly) that any public discussion of this ‘Migrant Compact’ has passed us by, and -guess who- has apparently signed us up. She has been greatly helped in this by the deliberate omission of coverage in the UK MSM.
          From what I gather, the US, Australia, Poland, Hungary,and Austria have already said that they are not signing. Others, mainly in Eastern Europe, are considering not signing.
          There is a lot of complacency about the ‘Compact’: the glossy ad gives you an idea why. However, the ultimate objective is to take from sovereign states the ability to control migration into their countries and hand that over to the UN.
          This is indeed a second front, one which we are ignoring while we line up to fight for Brexit. So, it seems, we will sign in Morocco next month, foolishly convinced control over own borders is a Brexit thing.
          We will have lots of time to contemplate this in future, when the UN starts telling us what we can and cannot do. At the moment it is still ‘non binding’. How long will that last, I wonder?

    If this is even half correct, May’s bit of handiwork is far far worse than I thought:

    The top 40 horrors lurking in the small print of Theresa May’s Brexit deal

    Unbelievable in fact. I think Blair is losing his reputation as the UK’s worst traitor in recent history. At least Chamberlain had the excuse that WW1 carnage was still fresh in people’s memories.

    I know polls are not very accurate and they will give you the results you pay for but I’ve not seen any over the last few days.
    I would have thought that with all the discontent about May’s terrible proposed deal the Tories would have lost a lot of voters, mainly going to UKIP.
    Is there a big swing to UKIP and it’s being kept secret?

    Also, I wish more people would come out and say that ‘no deal’ is actually a very good option. It’s what we voted for and not the dogs breakfast of a capitulation that remainer May with her remainer cabinet in a remainer government supported by the remainer civil service and given blanket support by the almost total remainer media (ALL the tv stations and most of the papers…we’ve lost the mail which is now another remainer paper)
    Leave won the referendum and not remain which is virtually the current May deal.

    How many letters are in.
    I hear 23 and I hear over 48.
    Is Brady in line for a gong of some sort and is holding back from triggering the no confidence vote.
    If May wins the vote but over a 100 vote against her how can she carry on knowing that so many don’t want her.

    Out, on WTO terms now.
    WTO rules OK.

      EG, “Also, I wish more people would come out and say that ‘no deal’ is actually a very good option.”

      I think it better to let the hard Remainers keep going on their ‘No deal = disaster’ mantras. The more of them that say it, on record, as on Any Questions last night, the better.

      Then, if the proposed deal falls in Parliament and there is no time to agree an alternative with Brussels & the Member States before 29 March, we will be out and free.

      If the hard Remainer predictions then fall flat in the first months or year or two of deal-less Brexit, their cause & reputation will be severely damaged, if not destroyed.

      Did you listen to AQs last night? Adonis was vile, almost a man possessed. I think we need to leave without a deal but it may be best for Brexiteers to remain quiet but determined. Let Remain exceed so that Brexit is a success.

      I suspect and hope that as more and more Remainers keep up their Brexit = Disaster, Peoples’ 2nd Vote, Remain, Remain, Remain chants then more and more people who voted Remain in June 2016 will start to grow all sorts of doubts and wish increasingly to be out and away from the EU. If only to have an end to the noise!

      We must now rely on Parliament and that vote with, hopefully, MPs listening to their constituents wishes and voting accordingly.

    White collar eco-warriors to spread chaos Times
    \\ A middle-class band of music teachers, civil servants and retired psychologists have been trained by experienced eco-activists to cause “chaos” in London today to force the government to enact radical laws on climate change.
    A “day of rebellion” has been organised by Extinction Rebellion (ER) with the aim of blocking five bridges across the Thames. A Times reporter attended a meeting where the leadership advocated smashing windows and spraying graffiti to get arrested. They plan to block Southwark, Blackfriars, Waterloo, Westminster and Lambeth bridges.

    The activists, who compare themselves to First World War conscientious objectors, have won backing from Lord Williams of Oystermouth, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Julia Bradbury, the television presenter, and George Monbiot of The Guardian.

      Dave,
      I don’t wish for the BBC to be funded from general taxation that is even worse than funding it by the LF. What I wish for is for either the BBC to funded wholly by subscription or , even better, for it to be broken up into at least four or five smaller parts and then sold off. Getting rid of the BBC is an ssential step to freeing our country from the Globalist yoke.

    It is now Saturday pm and the Rotherham rape gang story has gone from the England page, as predicted.
    You can now find it as item no.7 under Sheffield & Sth Yorks.
    So, there we have it, the BBC’s disappearing story trick….systematic child abuse and industrial scale Muslim gang rape hidden from view. Disgrace.
    The BBC news editors are clearly following an agenda. It happens every time. Shameful journalism.
