Midweek Open Thread 19 December 2018

In Theory it is 100 days to Britain leaving the ReichEU. We might guess how the far left BBC will celebrate this mile stone – but then we’d be biased wouldn’t we?

              BBC, how well is that police investigation into Arron Banks going? Do you not think, as a news organisation, with lots of journalists, that you should ask about things like that? After all, you gave the calls for it lots of publicity. You then gave the start of the investigation lots of publicity.

              Why so shy now?

                You can bet the opposition have no such scruples.
                They will harness all the multiple named, multiple voters.
                Look at the map, London is a different colour, as is Birmingham and Manchester.
                If area were considered Leave would have won 75% of the votes.
                I think that should be in the first post Brexit manifesto.
                If you have a non UK email address and you are not permitted to vote, so be it.
                If you are allowed to vote you may do so with a clear conscience. Because the enemy will certainly have done so.
                Please let us know the outcome.

      With a bit of luck Barnier and Tusk and the other drunks will pay the price – even though there is a lovely ReichEU pension awaiting these enemies .

      By the way – anyone notice that the PM of Belgium has resigned because of the poisonous UN treaty on illegal immigrants .,,?

    The EU representatives such as Juncker have done their cause no good at all. They have been Brexit’s secret weapon and alienated the British public.

    Undisclosed sources have said that the BBC has been anti-Brexit.

    It has been said, that May as a Remainer should never have been employed at all. At anything.

    Yeah Fed, I noticed that the Belgian Prime minister has resigned and I understand that could lead to a general election if no government is cobbled together there soon. I see this as very good news. Belgium as a country might not amount to much but as it is the host country for the EU and devoted to multiculti etc this a wonderful development.
    I think the fact that there were huge protests in Brussels just a few days before is also significant. If things carry on like this the EU will have to think about shifting it’s capital somewhere more stable like Strasbourg? Well possibly not on second thoughts. At least not till Macron/Jupiter ( as he has styled himself) gets his act together and that may be a while, because in the words of the old song”Stupider than Jupiter is very hard to be”
    So it looks like it would have to be Germany but having the HQ there sort of gives the game away.
    The Danes are a bit of a problem at times. And the Dutch have got the anti-EU Geert Wilders not many seats short of taking power in the parliament. Eastern Europe is out as they refuse to appreciate the beauty of mass third-world immigration.
    Greece? Say no more.
    Sweden perhaps, the natives are docile and easily flooded with ropers but what well paid bureaucrat wants to be somewhere that far North?
    So it looks like Luxembourg. Or possible the Republic of Ireland.
    Anyway if they cant find a suitable place we could always offer them some space in London to pitch their enormous tent, as it were. But on two conditions, firstly that they can make all the rules they like but none will apply to the UK. And secondly the rent will be 39 billion per month.

    No need to worry says the BBC “Government still committed to net migration target”… this assurance from the BBC and the government has washed away all my doubts… NOT!!!.

    Of course if the BBC employed journalists rather than propagandists, they would be hounding these lairs and demanding an explanation as to why after manifesto commitments in three elections the opposite policy has been followed… indeed why did they just sign that UN migrant pact???

    This is just more unquestioning propaganda from the BBC who fail yet again to have any journalistic integrity, while using government power to force you to give them money… If you or I extorted money like that it’d be called theft.. yet if you refuse to allow the the BBC to steal from you, it’s you that can end up in jail.

    So no doubt the government will go on importing illiterate 30-year old child migrants that they will sit next to your 11 year old daughter. And if you complain about his beard the BBC will feature you on their front slandering you as a racist for pointing out out his beard.

    For a start if you are not considering the WATER VAPOUR role of a process ,
    you are missing the most important greenhouse gas effect.
    ..and anyway in terms of methane & CO2 paddy field farming has a much higher intensity than a normal field.

    And of course when you toddle along with an old gas power station, you don’t generate all the CO2 for the concrete for wind turbine foundations,
    .. (never mind the peat carbon sink on the ground you build it)
    ..but when you do go that route you TODAY increase world CO2 in making the turbine and concrete and hope to pay it back by reducing the gas power plant CO2 output in the future
    .. It might take you 10 years… if ever to get back the construction CO2

      Stew, I read that and noted that the BBC author had missed the big point about the global warming nature of concrete. That is seen when it is used in cities and turns them into giant night storage radiators for the globe, especially in countries blessed with better sunshine records than the UK.

      The BBC cannot get their global warming science right. At least it makes them feel better about flying hundreds of presenters, journalists, producers and technicians to an air conditioned World Cup in brand new facilities in four years time. Blame it on the concrete. Blame it on the boogie.

      That said, at least they have recognised that concrete IS a major AGW cause. Now, if only we could get the IPCC to come on board ……

    I would strongly recommend ‘The Noble Liar’ by Robert Aitken. It goes through all the arguments we air so often on this website with an insider’s perspective.

    So Lewis Hamilton is now guilty of ‘slumism’ for saying he wanted to get out of Stevenage. How terrible: I thought very rich celebrities were queueing up to live it up in Stevenage. He has issued a pathetic apology. I wish the BBC could get all the ‘community leaders’ to apologise for turning a blind eye to the industrial rape of children. They are quick to talk up about an ‘offensive’ newspaper column suggesting they might try to integrate etc but about this there is a deafening silence, accompanied with zero ‘outrage’ which the BBC is so good at when it comes to imaginary oppression.

    As well as being pathetic and boring there is no humour to their SJW garbage. On the Donald subreddit someone might come up with a funny and clever meme about something like this: maybe Hamilton driving round Stevenage in a racing car to get out ASAP. None of that from the finger-wagging nannies at al Beeb: get all ‘offended’ and demand the perpetrator be punished. It really is akin to a religion with its joyless seriousness, burning of heretics and unquestioning belief in profoundly irrational and dangerous ideas (diversity is strength, for example.)

Lots of patience and real animal concern and truth with not one anti-human, anti-global, anti-Western World anti-this, anti-that undertone. Just delightful. If indeed it was not a dream then it shows the BB C what a wild-life program can be. Lots of admiration to Gordon, I bet he had to fight off the producers with a stick! More like this all TV companies it was watchable without the gritted teeth admonishments that most programs such as this inject to “educate” us poor uncaring masses deliver relentlessly including by the supreme being Attenbrother.

    I am astonished by how I feel towards my country these days. Once , perhaps as recently as ten years ago, I was a patriot who felt at home in the country of my birth. Now I find it unrecognisable , values which I grew up to respect have been ditched, democracy trampled in the mud , institutions openly working against the British people, non Brits given privileges which are not available to the rest of us, seemingly anyone from outside of the EU welcomed with open arms, Orwellian Thought Police everywhere, free speech dead.
    How can this have happened ? I am sure that the contribution to the obliteration of Britain of the BBC and Blair has been immense but the the rot started in the sixties when the educational establishment was taken over by cultural Marxists who have in effect spread their poison throughout our society largely unopposed. The bitter fruits of their foul work have ripened in the last decade and produced the fractured , unpleasant and completely non British society that we see today.

But on the other hand I look at the younger generation , their innocence at how they are being manipulated into giving away there birthright in exchange for a third world hell, and I wonder from where will the leadership come to resist , even to halt the rate of loss of Briish identity and culture, let alone to lead the long struggle to take back our country?

      Likewise Doublethinker, where has our country gone? I was born in 42 so well recall the days before the 60’s however I enjoyed the 60’s I have to say even though I had little money-like most of us young lads our wages were small even tiny by today’s standards. But that was yesterday. Following your thoguhts, the history of man is essentially a history of warfare, where territory, tribe or religion drives the impetus for conquest. That our ruling liberal elites in the West today believe that history, current reality and the law of nature no longer apply to us, however that does not mean the end of warfare. Rather, their wishful thinking simply makes it easier for those who are determined to wage war against us. The idea that wars are a thing of the past is so fantastical that only liberals, who cannot distinguish ideological fantasy from historical reality, could possibly believe that war will ever be vanquished.
      Islamic terrorist activity is being constantly thwarted by European intelligence services, but over the next ten years some of these Jihadists will slip through the net and carry out their next very large atrocity. Although most Europeans are still in a deep liberal sleep regarding Islam, this will not last-there are alreday as statistics show ver 75 million Muslims residing in Europe-it could only take Islamists in one EU country inc Britian to blow up one church, train or plane too many before the retaliation will begin and it will be nasty. The Police can hardly cope now so they will not be prepared for what will come and the military if drafted in, will be outnumbered. This war will resemble none of Europe’s previous conflicts, with their standing armies massed along clearly delineated lines. In the coming conflagration, it will initially be civilians, armed not with tanks and machine guns, but with knives, bombs and terror, who will call out the dogs of war. I really do not think or believe those currently in power have any idea of what is bubbling underneath. AND look we have a Muslim Home Secretary preaching on about immigration this morning on the BBC-just bonkers.

        The Home Secretary was being badgered by hopeless Humphries who asked him several times about numbers in the Tory manifesto. Javid sensibly said that the priority was to get immigration under control but the Beeboid was only interested in interrupting him and preventing him from giving a coherent message.

        I fear you are right. Can anyone think of a place where muslims and followers of any other religion live together in harmony? It has never happened anywhere in the history of islam.

        The fact is that islam is a warlike creed which refuses to accept the validity of any other belief, whether that is another religion, or modern liberal democracy. Anything which is not islam is incompatible with islam.

        Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Zoroastrians might all be able to get along with each other. History shows that islam cannot peacefully coexist with anything else. This vital point is central to the ideology.

        There will either be war or submission. What there won’t be, what there has never been, is peaceful coexistence.

      DT,
      The end product of the start in the 60’s of, “Anything goes” (the, “Whatever turns you on” brigade). I thought then that it will end in tears. Since compounded by years of immigration by people that equally could not care – but for different reasons (i.e. predominantly islam). EU citizens? EU financial mercenaries more accurately and, as foreigners do, they will vamoose just as quickly as they arrived if higher pay is available in their home countries. How can anyone base a sound and reasonably predictable economy / public services on these factors unless overall Marxist control by the EU is exercised ?

      Great post Doublethinker. I share your concern for the wellbeing of this country.

      When you consider the national character that we had, it used to fill me with pride. Our history, our achievements, how much we sacrificed in WW2, Mrs T and her dominance on the world stage long before identity politics was a thing but now look at us.

      Happy to be lectured to by the BBC, happy to be dismissed and disregarded by the EU and happy to see our character dismantled by globalists keen to turn the world into vanilla paste and distilling our national identity and values with ever more immigration.

      Yes there are many on here fighting the good fight but I fear it’s not enough to stop the rot. Battering the core fundamentals of democracy which is happening with Brexit just leads to rightful apathy. My vote means nothing so what is the point?

      And apathy leads to destruction of this once great country and victory for those who have been playing the very long game.

    Header: “In Theory it is 100 days to Britain leaving the ReichEU. We might guess how the far left BBC will celebrate this mile stone – but then we’d be biased wouldn’t we?” …..

    …. but we would be right.

    BBC Bias on show from the outset, I guess, (only started listening about 6.20am) on the TOADY Programme. Certainly there was plenty before and after 7am. There was a woman complaining that the proposed Immigration Bill (details from Home Sec later today) might prevent Junior Doctors (ie. not yet fully trained) coming to the UK because they would only earn £27,000 in their first year and be excluded under a £30,000 minimum salary limit.

    Do I recall correctly that the NHS only recruits fully qualified doctors and that is mandated by Government already? That spokeswoman was therefore raising a false canard. There was no challenge from The Humph. If my memory is correct about Doctor qualification, that means the BBC was delivering more FakeNews and FalseFacts.

    While the bBBC are creaming themselves silly with unceasing Project Fear coverage, I read and learn that many institutions are making contingency plans, not because of Brexit but because of the threat of a Corbyn/Mcdonnell Marxist government. Offshoring assets, opening alternative routes of manufacture, re-allocation of capital. Many business see concens over Brexit and Corbyn equally, not to mention the public, where in the latter case higher taxes, new taxes, the pound in freefall, and high inflation will wipe out the moddle class.
    Yet strangely, reporting on the severe economic dangers of a Marxist government seems completely absent from BBC news coverage. I wonder why?

    A post Brexit immigration policy is due today.
    Funny thing is, we’re allowing in nearly 200,000 non EU nationals already. We could have done something about that, EU or no EU. But we didn’t. Perhaps we didn’t want to cause offence to those in arranged marriages from the Indian subcontinent.
    Meanwhile, Denmark, inside the EU, has set up some excellent policy to discourage unfettered mass immigration and Hungary and Poland and others the same. Personally hard working Catholic Poles who want to do jobs here no-one else wants to do is the least of my worries.
    The point is that mass immigration is only in part EU- based. It is mainly due to the pro-unfettered immigration policy of the Home Office and the unwillingness of law makers to create strong policies and then implement them effectively. Proof? How many criminals that could and should be deported after finishing prison sentences go missing? Total incompetence.

    – 2004 She dyes her hair
    – 2011 Started job at Lincs Hospitals ULHT
    – Nov 2017 uniform policy was updated
    – February to May 2018 off sick
    – end of June when she was spoken to by a deputy chief nurse.
    I was informed my hair was “too bright” and in breach of ULHT uniform policy.
    After speaking to The Royal College of Midwives Union, Donna put in a grievance
    – July 2 was the next working day “sent home on unpaid leave to address the issue.”
    “offered mediation of wearing a headscarf, wig or theatre cap ”
    – NHS broke employment law by delaying grievance meeting more than 15 days
    – September 4 first grievance fact finding meeting was on as to why
    – October second meeting
    – December 13 grievance appeal took place on . An outcome is expected in the near future.
    – Dec 17 \\ Officials from Unite say their members, and those of other unions, have passed a vote of no confidence in United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust, which runs Lincoln, Boston and Grantham hospitals.
    Managers have been accused of putting minor issues, like the colour of socks staff wear, ahead of patient safety. //

      – You’ve paid for the meetings
      – She just said that sometime in the interim, she had a breakdown with the stress an her doctor has signed her off sick . So you are paying for sick pay.
      It’s difficult to see how a rule changed not on grounds of safety would stand up court, so you the taxpayer will be paying compensation.
      – You the taxpayer will probably be funding a payoff for a NHS senior manager.

      and has an £80m defecit, yet there are a number of pending hair colour cases , but none outside this trust.

      Why is it that most of the people gulled into this type of action; who seem oblivious to what has been happening in Europe, the driving of lorries over crowds of people, the mass rape of hundreds of thousands of white children, innumerable bombings and shootings, all carried out by “kind gentle souls”; are women?

      The ‘new bonds’ are encouraged through the Political propaganda of Multiculturalism. Ultimately it will fail, however on its way to that dark end it will cause much damage to our, (so far predominant white population). As we are seeing every effort is being made by the media of one kind or another to include peoples of black/dark colour introduced into all areas of publicity-no doubt you have seen them all over your TV screen day in and day out. Not only does it annoy us the whites but no doubt is often considered my blacks and coloured people as being patronizing. I would feel that way were I from a race of people whose colour reflected those from such as Africa, where the colour of the skin was dark for obvious reasons.

    Banksy art? Graffiti in Port Talbot sparks speculation
    _104872289_banksybecca.jpg

    ”A new piece of graffiti art has got a whole town talking – with one question on their lips: Is it a Banksy?
    Speculation over the artwork has been further fuelled, after a sketch bearing striking similarities to the latest piece emerged.

    It appeared in a documentary last year, featuring exchanges between the film director Danny Boyle and Banksy, as they collaborated on an alternative ‘nativity’ play in Bethlehem. ”

          Fed.

          And I wish I had a quid for every time non-believers have asked me the following question and each time I’ve given them the following answer which points to your correct statement about Islam :

          Question?

          Why did Jesus come so late in time?

          The critics of Christianty usually points us to Galatians 4:4 “in the fullness of time” which we know refers to Jesus Christ.

          But those same critics fail to realise that The Lord Jesus couldn’t come until his parents had been born.

          And his parents couldn’t come until the long list of family members described in (Matt 1-17) had been born.

          And Abram couldn’t come till Genesis 11:26 “When Terah had lived 70 years, he fathered Abram, Nahor, and Haran”

          Abrahams call: “Now the Lord said to Abram, “go from your own country….(Gen 12:1)

          Now Abraham couldn’t come until shem had been brought into the world and all of his descendants. (Gen 11:10) “These are the generations of Shem…”

          And Shem couldn’t come until Noah had come. (Gen 10:1) “These are the generations of the son’s of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth….”

          And Noah could’nt come until Adam came. (Gen 1:26) “Then God said, “let us make man in our image”

          So its not that God is late in time he is in fact right on time.

          “but when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son”…born of a woman.

    2018 Scotland baby names : we don’t know true number of Muhammads cos they have a trick to hide other spelling variations
    You can see that from the way in Glasgow : Muhammad is #1, and then Mohammad is #10=
    Yet The Scottish national list only cover 100 names so this year excludes Mohammad
    The other 10 spelling like Mo, Moh, Mehmets etc are not shown
    They should appear in regions, but SNR list only the top 10 names , not the full list

          As I previously tweeted

          Muhammad is still #1 cos #BiasedBBC missed some spellings,
          You can add the further variations like Turkish spellings
          eg “There were 43 baby boys called Md in 2017”
          Mehmet 37, Mahamed 9 Mehmed 4, Mahammed 3, Mo 3 etc
          That adds 99 to the BBC total of 7,307
          Any advance on 7,406 ?

      Earlier this year on some programme discussing the popular names ‘story’ the discussion was why has Sarah’s popularity dropped so dramatically. Five years ago it was the most popular girl’s name, and now it wasn’t even in the top 10.

      Even the propagandists fail to understand the propaganda. The only reason Sarah has fallen down the list is because they’ve stopped combining Sarah and Sara. They’ve stopped combining Sarah and Sara because they’ve stopped combining Muhammad and Mohammed.

    The usual rituals rudely upset be Corbyn using the words “ stupid woman” in response to the PM

    Unfortunately the BBC pulled away before the fun really started with the speaker getting a kicking – it was on the Parliament channel .

    Mad soubry called the speaker … biased ( or words to that effect ) and all the girl MPs got stuck it .

    In the meantime Corbyn legged it before the fun hit going . Great Fun but obviously just an indicator of what a dysfunctional place the House of Commons is ……

    Bercows responses pointed out that he is a bully in the way he treated members of the House ….

    “Are you confident as you look ahead, that a unifying story of hope can beat a weaponized story of nostalgia?”

    A question posed by the presenter of a R4 on a programme called “Belonging” which was on immediately after ManHating Hour.

    If you want to know where the BBC now is, this programme is it. Absolute propaganda for globalism, and a sneering swipe against the majority conservative and indigenous population.

    Somalis in Wales are lovely, their identity to Somalia is lovely, shared stories about their homeland are lovely and we must forget ours.

    At one point there was even an admittance that tensions with indigenous populations across Europe showed that Globalism was failing, but then came the claim that it wasn’t the fault of Globalism but the people that have to change.

    At one point it was claimed that change will come as all the old racists will “fade with time”.

    This programme made me even more angry about the BBC. The organisation might still pretend to be neutral on Left v Right, but it blatantly pushes for Globalism. Given that the new politics is frequently said to be Globalism v Nationalism now, and not Left v Right, the BBC shouldn’t be taking sides. But in this new politics, their bias is pushed in almost all their output.

      Quisquose – They hope that the old racists will “fade with time”? What I hope and believe is that as people outgrow the ignorant idealism of youth, they will slowly come to respect the heritage, customs and traditions of their country and start to repudiate the globalist project of replacing European civilisation with Third World degradation. We “old racists” will not fade away.

      There is a lot of “social housing” being built in Norfolk that is (allegedly) being built for homeless people from London. This is government policy as it’s cheaper to house them outside London. The government saves money but the infrastructure in rural areas is degraded – roads, schools, medical services. Needless to say, the BBC isn’t interested until it can twist the story to schools and hospital struggling because of Tory cutz to local budgets.

      Since about 2000 London has seen an exodus of self dumping politically correct people too, to small towns around country,
      I should point out this has nothing to do the influx of immigrants into London, and certainly not because they don’t want little Flora and Max to attend a 3rd world heavy school.
      Provincial towns have protested to the arrival of these gangs, but to no avail.

    Less than a week til the big day and with people’s thoughts on all things Christmassy, the good doctor has his pulse on the finger of the nation when he says “this is the time of year that people really think about the NHS and what it means to them…”

    Then on to the home affairs correspondent with a reciprocal, culturally whitewashed and state approved “Season’s Greetings” from Nihal. Now some chat on migration following the Home Secretary’s proposals, where our bro Nihal needs his fix like a starving crack addict so reaches deep and muses “with all things Brexit-related, perhaps no-one’s going to be happy…?”
