4th Day of Christmas Thread

As 2018 comes to a sudden end the Far Left  BBC goes into full revision of the year to suit its’ biased view .

I think the falling Christmas figures will give just another small push towards subscription funding to finally kill the poisonous creature off .

    Could some activists unwittingly be playing a similar roll here?

    “Over the past generation, migrant smugglers — at the outset known as “polleros” (or chicken herders) — have been viewed as a necessary evil by migrant advocacy groups. Smugglers acted illegally, to be sure, but for a worthy cause: To assist migrants to arrive at their destination and achieve a better life…”

    So we have a migrant crisis. Savid Javid, Home Secretary (peace be upon him) comes back from his holidays to deal with the problem. The problem appears to be how can he continua to allow more of his kind in whilst at the same time appearing to do something to
    prevent them coming in?

    That is where you need a loyal media, which will drop all reporting of Sajid’s people and their arrival here.

        I have repeatedly heard them say, there is no other way to apply for asylum rather than enter illegally
        .. AFAIK they can go to a British embassy or representative in a war zone and apply ..but then they’d be at the back of the queue.

    “To assist migrants to arrive at their destination and achieve a better life…”. They’re not the only ones who want to assist the invaders, sorry, migrants to arrive at their destination and achieve a better life.
    Remember this when you can’t get your child into the school of your choice, when you have to wait weeks to see your GP or when you aren’t considered for social housing because the needs of a Somali family with six children are considered to be more of a priority than you with your two children. Oh, and don’t mention the unprecedented rise in crime, especially violent crime and ‘new’ types of crime such as honour killing, FGM and acid attacks. You may also have noticed that the roads seem a lot more congested.
    Remember just over twenty years ago when our population was much lower because our birth rate was much lower? What’s happened to account for the increase?
    Do something our politicians never mention; have a look to see what the most popular boys name is over the last few years, don’t forget to include it’s derivations.

          Putin sent some naval craft, sank the pirate vessels and sailed over swimming survivors.

        Cassandra – absolutely right. Although I know decent individual Bangladeshis, corruption, dishonesty and unbelievable racism are the norm in their society. For a society to function well, the majority of ordinary people have to be honest, hard-working and law-abiding people. Protestant northern European cultures have been strikingly successful in producing such people. The rest of the world has not. On the sub-continent everything from shortchanging your customers to rigging elections is expected. We import the Third World at our peril.

    As we’re approaching the end of the year I’m trying to remember the most painfully, politically correct slant a story has been given by the Beeb. There’s quite a few to choose from but I think this one takes some beating.
    I remember listening to the Jeremy Vine Show one cool October afternoon when I was laid up with a slipped disc.
    He related the story of Karen White. “Karen” is the transgender prisoner, who’s actually still a bloke, but claims to “identify as female” and has therefore been allowed to serve his sentence in a female prison. What could possibly go wrong?
    He (I’m still going to call Karen he) has a record as long as your arm. Mainly violence, flashing at kids, indecent assault, animal cruelty, raping a pregnant woman and stabbing an elderly man. So, in short a real charmer!
    While in the women’s prison he sexually assaulted a couple of inmates. Surprise, surprise.
    It was Vine’s, oh so PC machinations re these horrible incidents that astonished me. “They were in the showers and she started waggling her erect penis at the other women.”…and then “She stood behind the woman and pressed her erect penis into her…” FFS, no!
    Poor old Jezza was in a right state, particularly later when he spoke to another transgender person about the case and inadvertently referred to “Karen” as “he”. You’d think he’d broken all 10 commandments in one go.
    In the good old days the BBC used to make Monty Python.
    Now it’s become like one of its sketches…

    I am following the Bangledeshi general election with great interest,

    was wondering if anybody with more knowledge on the
    voting system in Bangledesh than me. Are only WOMEN allowed to vote?
    All the leader photos are of women voting ?
    I know the BBC is veering towards the first media outlet just
    catering for and just employing women. I suppose I
    can accept this. But that does mean that any news concerning
    men will not feature? It’s a novel idea. I am really looking forward

    Listened to ‘From our own correspondent yesterday, Radio 4 on Saturday. One of the items was a tortuous tale about trolls, with the journalist trying to make an analogy with something that’s going on in Sweden that wasn’t specifically referred to.

    The trolls of legend may have been people who couldn’t accept the change from Pagan beliefs to Christianity, so fled into the forests and turned into the ugly creatures of legend.

    The journalist in Sweden encountered a ‘troll’ in the dark one night, dressed in black, who defaced – I think it was a pro immigration poster or something like that – and ran off when it realised the journalist had spotted the ill deed and ran off. The journalist pursued the ‘troll’ but the troll managed to evade capture.

    To me, the intended moral of this tale is that those who cannot accept change (islamisation – though the I word was not used) are and will become like the trolls of legend.

    Were I an editor for this programme I would have thrown this contribution in the bin. There must be more candidates for inclusion than they put in the program. So, the inclusion of this item is telling of the BBC mindset. Is it Kate Adie’s fault or is she just the presenter?

    This just happened to be on when I switched on the radio in the car so I didn’t catch the journalist’s name.

      The top comments give BBC a kicking, I took screen shots (alt Printscreen)

      It wasn’t black visitors it was ALL beach goers.
      This was not a race issue but based on security assisting police who were investigating an attempted rape and were trying to clear the area.
      As usual everything becomes about race in South Africa and the organizations involved look for any reason to protest even when innocent.

        but it seems private householders Clifton beach. thought the best way to keep the streets around secure during December holidays was to hire private security.. cos the police are not enough.
        And someone made the decision it’s best to close beaches at night
        So ALL people were asked to leave.
        Of course there is doubt about the legality of that.
        – Next local politicians jump on the bandwagon, cos elections are coming in ..and shout it was illegal and lay charges against the security firm.
        hence ” This is a manufactgured outrage”
        – Some black people came up with the idea of sheep sacrifice ritual to “purify” the conflicted spot ..of course local traditions must be respected, but this idea is controversial.
        I don’t know about the idea of rape or sexual assault allegations.

      Liam Fox is another Brexit sell out like Gove who values five minutes sitting at the big table, sucking up to a lying and treacherous PM rather than being true to his “principles”
      How I hate these people. At least with likes of Mathew Paris, Grieve and Chukka woteverisname is – you know what they believe in.

      Changing the subject (and not BBC relevant because I have studiously avoided it for the last week for blood pressure reasons – but I gotta tell someone) I bought the Times today as there were no Sunday Telegraphs. And it seems to be trying to turn itself into the Gaurdian.
      We had at least two pages dedicated to migrants . The first article was by a journo called Sarah Baxter, who happened to be aboard a flight where a Somalian “refugee” offender was being deported.
      We had 7 columns of print trying to raise sympathy for this particular individual who came to this country as a child “refugee” (with his family?) but decided to bite the hand that fed him instead by selling class A drugs. Now he is being deported, Boo hoo – No good riddance. But at least Sarah believed in him. (obviously not a racist)

      The second article was by Mathew Cambell concerns a group of “migrants” trying to cross the channel to Blighty. The article figured a character called “Mossen” who until recently was a school teacher in Tehran (hooray – must have a degree and everything) and his friend Mohammed (an engineer) unfortunately there did not appear to be a Doctor in the group. Mossen said he is likely to be executed if he returns (boo hiss) as he figured prominently in the recent protests against the Mullahs. Unfortunately our intrepid journalist Mathew seems to have been unable to have done any research on this character just taking his words at face value and publishing the article.

      What particularly annoyed me about this article was that in the best BBC fashion it takes everything these characters take at face value. We have no idea who we are taking in and who these people have hurt. And even if they show contrition now for any crimes, what is to say they will not go back to their old ways once they have gained or (re-gained ) entry to the UK. How naive can these people be.

      The other point which these MSM journos seem to have missed (which I think has been mentioned here) All of these people are ILLEGAL immigrants. And in fact they have already crossed through Europe and were safe – yet they have to come here. We know for a fact that they are schooled in what to say by “refugee” charities.

      When will these MSM cretins ever get it, on the whole we are being ripped off and lied to by chancers who have seen their opportunity and have grabbed it. Yet still they refuse to see it.

      Whatever happened to “journalistic rigour” God the founders of the “Thunderer” must be rolling in their graves.

    “Recent Examples on the Web
    Decades later, the discrete litmus tests each party imposes on judicial nominees—and particularly those imposed by the Federalist Society–enamored Republican Party—have evolved into a nearly procrustean template.

    No-deal Brexit ferry contract sparks concerns
    Concerns have been raised over the readiness of a British firm contracted by the government to run extra ferries in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

    Seaborne Freight was awarded a £13.8m contract this week to run a freight service between Ramsgate and Ostend.
    The firm has never run a ferry service and a local councillor said it would be impossible to launch before Brexit.
    The government said it had awarded the contract in “the full knowledge that Seaborne is a new shipping provider”.
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-46714984

    just standard old boys network, hand out £108 million to your mates …
    if a no deal actually happens, their inexperience can help create a jam..

    I’m not following this too close , could someone explain the ‘logic’ of increasing ferries from Europe after a no deal?
    I thought all trade would just dry up??
    or any that bothered coming would not be let it due to red tape ?

    ”The government has also awarded additional, much larger ferry contracts to French company Brittany Ferries and Danish shipping firm DFDS, worth £46.6m and £47.3m respectively.”
    of course got to spread the love to the EU…

        Fed,
        I’m not sure what the situation is like now, but I remember a couple of years ago speaking to a relative who works on the railways. He said that freight coming into the UK on the Channel Tunnel was severely curtailed because the companies kept getting big fines for all the illegals jumping on board making it unprofitable..with the French police apparently turning a blind eye.

          Oh well – maybe it can be filled in then – or maybe one way from Blighty to the ReichEU for deportations ?

    Blimey – I see Maxi’s been re-activated. Now he’s back like a toy drone invading our airspace once more. Buzzing about with an onboard loudhailer shouting “You deplorables, your posts are 0.01% inaccurate, therefore far-right and completely inadmissable and untrue!”

    Not the bbc, but they join the BBC in presuming to be arbiters of ‘intelligence’.

    Having Cathy as chair hardly seems the best start, but that Remain panel has likely lost them as many votes as Ken, Anna and Tarzan combined.

      But GW, they’ve got a new hashtag so they must really mean business.

      Incidentally is ‘#BritainAdrift’ the new ‘#FacingTheAbyss’? Or is it the sort of new ‘#CrashingOut’? I wish someone would let me know what’s hot and what’s not

    Two stories come up on Twitter

    Morocco tourist murders: Swiss-Spanish national arrested:
    The dual Swiss-Spanish national was arrested in Marrakesh on Saturday, Moroccan authorities say.

    Swiss-Spanish ‘instructor’ arrested in IS-inspired slaughter of Scandinavian tourists in Morocco

    Bet you can guess which is RT … and which BBC ?

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-46714293

    What do you reckon PJW
    \\”Swiss-Spanish” man – yeah because I’m sure that was a defining or motivating characteristic. //

    \\ If he is a ‘Swiss man’ then I’m a Dutchman //

    Why don’t you nip down to Ladbrokes and put some money down on him having a typical Swiss name.

    Saw the last 20 minutes of the Paddington film on BBC1 this evening. Twice we received the message that in spite of coming from another country and being different from other people Paddington was loved by the Brown family. The message was laid on with a trowel.

    Have been persuaded by daughter to watch Les Mis at 9pm on the BBC this evening. Having avoided the musical and being the heathen that has not read the book I am not that certain of the story or the setting. But it took less than 10 minutes to see the first black character and noticed two black people amongst the few going into church.

    Need I add that as yet I a must not feeing uplifted by Les Mis.

    I am not so uneducated that I don’t believe there were some black people in Paris, just not the coincidences that provide a higher ratio than I would have anticipated.

      Deb
      Wait til episode 2 when the trannies turn up . Didn’t even bother . I wonder how bbc will hype the viewing figures . ?
      As year on year the Christmas ‘ specials’ are much less ‘special’ it will be full blown repeats – or ‘ classics’ as they are now called .

      Time for a New Year Post methinks …
