    R4 are certainly doing their bit for anti Brexit.. now allowing a bunch of “Peoples vote” monkeys to speak gobshite
    One of them is now saying we have a Remain option in ballot but not a have Brexit…she can’t see the irony of her idiocy
    She is spouting jobs will be lost, the economy will die – all the stuff they said in 2016 which was wrong..
    Now she is telling us that we didn’t know what we were voting for and HUGE numbers of people who voted Brexit now want to remain..WTF, just opinion
    No idea who she is but she is an idiot and R4 giving her voice…too much..and no challenge to the mass of garbage flowing forth – BBC at its best. Rant over

      ‘‘Tis the season of rants . I just can’t figure out how the bbc became just so solidly biased . They never let the defence down for one moment . Their journ college must have a Stalin like regime shooting waverers in the back of the head before they get their NUJ card . Quite something .

    “Man held by armed police at UK Parliament”
    “He is to undergo a mental health assessment, police said.” But …………………
    “They would not say whether the man was armed”.
    Looking at the Video does anyone see a policeman picking up a weapon of sorts ?
    What does that tell you, Watson?

      Reminds me of when I was a counsellor at an American summer camp.

      Seated around the fire the discussion turned to where we would visit after our stint.

      One suggested California, but another said it was full of Manson types. So another asked why so many ended up there.

      One of the hosts answered that “They they may be crazy psychos, but they are not stupid and want to be like that where the weather is nice”.

      I see ‘attacking’ the HoP might see some similar thinking on the matter of arms.

      There are comments in a panel top right (at least on my browser). Some brain donor has suggested she will be struggling if in need of birth control or an abortion.

      When the time comes this young lady will probably, like most not addicted to state control, handle the first herself and not need the latter.

    ITV Calendar local news
    Brexit : we report from 2 local businesses, both voted Remain, but one has now changed his mind
    Here we are at the bakery, where the owner has changed his mind
    ..very articulate , except for the bit where he said he feared custom delays means he wouldn’t get components from France ..his solution he’d be buying British in future
    NEXT : “Here we are at the piano dealer”
    ..cuts to kid playing There May Be Trouble Ahead”
    ..Owner is inarticulate “Second vote ..blah blah .. VAT in France …”

    …blah blah
    They just cut to Westminster Green ..blurred EU flags in background
    ..but then a prerecord from sensible MP Andrea Jenkyns

      The piano dealer on Calendar said that pianos would be more expensive after Brexit because they would have VAT levied on them. I’m sure I don’t need to explain the reasons this is bollocks.

    Aaaah Soros yet again.

    The pound drops a smidgeon because of ‘events’.

    The old buqqer gets a few more squillions on shorts, and off we go again!

    I’m hoping that the anusapertures like blair and co will get found out pretty soon, as they’re certainly on the money as we speak!

    Where is the real fraud squad when you need them? Maybe we should ask the bbbc’s financial squirrell? It’ll know – or not…

    Did I hear correctly on the BBC news today…
    A BBC film crew just happened to be onboard a fishing boat in the middle of the English Channel, when they spotted a dinghy full of doctors and engineers attempting to cross.
    They shepherded the dingy through one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world so they could phone the coastguard to rescue them when they got into coastal waters.
    It would appear that the BBC are now complcent in helping illegal immigrants….

      End of show “We’ve had loads of comments coming in, here’s some examples.. he then read 5 from hardline Brexiteers , and one from from a former Remainer, who also didn’t want a second vote”
      .. I am pretty sure if they had some pro Remain or pro-MrsMay msgs they would have read them out.

    Looks like the House of Commons is getting a bit fractious – an snp nobody raising a point of order because Dennis skinner refered to him as a piece of excrement . The berkow played referee with just a warning and no yellow cards yet .

    Anyone with dogs nearby might like to walk them past the ice and let them pee on it which may add some colour to this work of art that has somehow found its way into a BBC news item.

    The Church of England has issued new advice about how to help transgender people mark their transition. According to the beeb, “in the past, the Church has been criticised for not doing enough to guard against transphobia, and for failing to eliminate the bullying of transgender pupils in faith schools.”

    In the interests of gender equality, I’m sure the BBC will also be reporting how the spokesimams of other religions plan to welcome the trans community into their inclusive, loving embrace.

    She may mean what she says now. But would we be surprised to find TM changing her mind in ‘the national interest’ and sacrificing herself to NOT resign before the next election after all, assuming she lasts that long? Nope.
    She would discover some crisis that needed her urgent personal attention, she would be ‘clear’ about it, then focus on ‘getting on with the job’. I can hear it now.
    No big deal for a politician. So why do the beeb drone on about it endlessly, pretending it hadn’t occured to them.
    And would her gutless party let her? Yup. If they haven’t joined up with Labour by then, in the national interest, of course. And there is an example of how it’s done, not so far away.
    Does that undertaking really have any credibility at all?
