Midweek Open Thread 13 February 2019

Looks like America is getting too dangerous for staff of the Far Left BBC . I think if Americans had any idea about that BBC reporters say about their President , Head of State and Commander in Chief the reception of BBC would be far less folksy …

    Times a whole series of heavy offenders : rapists, domestic abusers, violence are just being called in for interviews instead of proper police bail.. thus victims are vulnerable.

    FFS yet James Goddard is having masses of police attention and bail procedures for 10 minutes of copying Anna Soubry’s lot’s style of protest.

    “YouTuber Ally Law charged with stealing cup of tea”
    ..He and his mate regularly show themselves on video breaking the law trespassing on high rise buildings.
    Instead of simply going round
    .. the police waited until he went to an airport and then dragged him off the line for the plane like a terroristusing 10 officers
    ..and then bizarrely charged him with stealing a cup of tea

    Likewise on Feb 4th his mate was arrested when he arrived by plane at another airport a few days before
    and charged with tea stealing.

    Police say that trespass is a civil offence so they can’t charge you with it.
    Jesus surely the guys are breaking health and safety laws its clear in their vids.

      Thanks for the posting . 6 minutes well worth it . It’s a shame she couldn’t be more specific about events she experienced .

      The BBC will come up with some heavy distractions around the 23rd of February when the covert recordings by TR and friends are aired ; their rebuttal will be industrial too – unless they attempt to ignore it .

        What I like about this lady is that what she says is completely genuine. Okay, more details would have been nice, and something more damning, but the fact she says only what she knows to be true, and that she can’t remember more facts just tells me that she is telling the honest truth.

        Do you think the BBC would brand her as ‘far right’?

        Have come to the conclusion the most ‘far right’ (e.g. fascist) group active in the UK today are probably the BBC themselves.

    Moral Maze on radio 4 is about decolonising the curriculum. Do they ever get bored saying the same stuff permanently? Once again I have to change the channel within seconds as my blood pressure is going through the roof.

    Why does a writer or character have to have the same skin colour or background as you for you to be able to appreciate them? I have never been a Danish prince but that does not dim my enjoyment of the genius of Hamlet. Is not the glory of education that it transcends boundaries? Anyone anywhere gets the same Euclidean geometry – I do not even know what colour his skin was, why would I even care?

    There is nothing the SJWs touch that is not ruined. If they manage to get Shakespeare taken off the curriculum it will be such a travesty for children of every race, creed and orientation. I can never forgive them for poisoning the almighty Star Wars with their preaching.

    Still nothing about the senate saying there is no evidence of Russian collusion on the BBC. They only have about 20,000 staff perhaps nobody has had the time to report on it? It is inconceivable that they would not tell us such vital news unless they were suffering from severe overwork.

    Could they not get the person writing about professional pet walkers for their news app to write about this bomb shell instead? For £5 billion a year I kind of expect them to be able to report on this.

    As those in the know say, this was all a coup to unseat Trump. Perpetrated by moneyed elites and corrupt security services.

    Meanwhile, ” Preet Gill, a member of Jeremy Corbyn’s frontbench team, wants the country to return to the polls for a second referendum on Brexit – and claims this time there would be “a different result”.

    Mrs Gill also urged Leave supporters to “keep and open mind” (!) and “talk to Remainers”, saying it was vital that the country was united.(!!!???)

    (Shadow Minister for International Development (****! )
    Mrs Gill represents Birmingham Edgbaston (Rich folks here!) which voted 52.7 per cent to stay in the EU and was one of the few Remain constituencies in the West Midlands.)

    And in poor Papua New Guinea an APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) Conference had imported around 300 limo’s to ferry the elites around, including custom built Maseratis. Sadly 200 have gone missing.

Consequently ‘university towns’ voted ‘remain’, not being able to work out that once we stop paying for motorways in Latvia we could give more to our own universities.

    Today astronomers announced a white hot giant star went supernova, the star named only as BR1-AN-100-O-10 is many thousands of light years from our own solar system and does not pose any threat to our planet.

    White hot giant stars generally have short stellar lives as they fuse hydrogen to helium at an incredible rate. Recently, the star exhausted its supply of hydrogen and began fusing helium into heavier elements such as carbon and oxygen. The star eventually reached a point where it was fusing atomic number 26 which we call iron and this caused the star to collapse under its own gravity. The collapse created even heavier elements such as gold as the star imploded.

    Astronomers believe all that will be left is a super dense pulsar that emits a powerful regular beam of energy as it rapidly rotates on its axis. The signal will be recorded by radio telescopes all around the world and will be known as the nuh nuh signal.

      Reminds me of how Brian the Supernova or Beatlejuice the Supernova can cause Climate Change. In 2004 a lab in Munich found 2.8 million year old Iron-60, the first evidence for a nearby Supernova. Such an event is thought to have caused a Cosmic Ray Winter around that time. Buy the book, The Chilling Stars: ISBN 9781840468663

      It works like this: Man-made and Volcanic CO2 does not have the Carbon-14 Isotope. Levels of this Isotope show that 4 percent or 16ppm of the increase in CO2 in over 100 years is due to Man-made or Volcanic CO2, this is also confirmed by the ratio of Carbon-12 to Carbon-13 in the Atmosphere. So if you use facts instead of assumptions, then only 16 percent of the increase in CO2 was man-made. This is not a surprise if you realise that ice core data shows that CO2 levels rise about 800 years after a warming and that the Medieval Warm period peaked about 800 years ago. The reason for this is that there is a 800 year thermal lag in the deep oceans and that the Oceans dominate the system with a mass 275 times that of the Atmosphere, so the ratio of CO2 in the Atmosphere/Oceans is dependent upon the heat in the Oceans.

      Therefore because of the laws of Thermodynamics, only something like Cloud over the Pacific Ocean could radically push the temperatures in the Oceans up or down, the whole Atmosphere would be inadequate, never mind the insanity in thinking 16 parts per million of the Earths atmosphere dominates the temperature of the Oceans.

      Its why Piers Corbyn gets very angry with the 98 percent consensus of morons. But a scientist has to be in the two percent to be able to get into Mensa.

          Yes Richard as you have pointed out before only an increase in atmospheric pressure or significant increase in solar radiation can really push up temps globally. Even in those 2 scenarios you are quite likely to get much more cloud cover and rain to balance things out.

          We seriously need to know what has been causing the very rapid and massive changes in the deep past. Scientifically proving the reasons behind the Younger Dryas might help. My feeling is that our current Holocene age is Earth at its most normal but then we get impacts from space which can bugger everything up for potentially thousands of years and we get a run away freeze with ice sheets reflecting solar radiation. It is a real shame that there is virtually no research on these issues and seemingly endless amounts of money are wasted on anthropogenic reasons. All this of course is way above the Beeboids head, they will never accept they are wrong about anything.

              Only 80,000 years.

              Ice ages are also caused by changes in the Earths planetary axis and orbit, producing Ice ages that peak every 100,000 years, the last one peaked 20,000 years ago. The inclination of the Earth’s orbit has a 100,000 year cycle relative to the plane passing through the barycentre.

      At the end of this one the hero is seen watching a TV with the voices of an interviewer and a scientist, which sounds like a bot.

      The interviewer is trying to get his head around a rather unlikely scenario, but the bot eventually loses patience, interrupts, asks him if he is a scientist and on getting the expected reply responds by saying ‘then shut up’.

    Evening all.
    Here’s a point of view I have never heard given mention on the bBBC.
    Just back from Tunisia. There is a strain of opinion in Tunisia that is very p*****off with the leftmob European open door ‘poor asylum seekers’ policy towards the boat migrants across the Med. They want the EU to grow a pair and get tough.
    For Tunisians to get into Europe legally they have all kinds of paperwork and visas to get through. But these legal and honest people see their compatriots getting on the boats and being treated like royalty. So why try and emigrate legally when there is a whole strain of do-gooders in Europe ready to swallow the sob stories of the illegal economic migrant chancers.
    I’m sure the bBBC would like to describe these honourable Tunisians as Far Right EDL supporters but I suspect many ordinary people would agree with those Tunisians.

    The Warsaw summit is on today & tomorrow. Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt will attend – at least for the first day. The main focus is on Iran but Hunt has said he wants to primarily address the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. (bloody coward)

    On Monday, thousands of people rallied in Tehran chanting “Death to Israel”, “Death to America” and “Death to Britain”, whilst Iranian leaders repeated aggressive threats of Israel’s destruction.
    (Sounds like an average day at the BBC eh?)

    Other European countries will send lower-level delegates and some Arab countries are sending delegations led by ministers.

    Who won’t be there?
    Chief EU diplomat Federica Mogherini said she would not attend

    Russia, declined the invitation. (Surprise!)

    Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil announced on Monday that he would not attend the summit, as well as Palestinian officials who have dubbed the conference a US-Israeli “conspiracy aimed at eliminating the Palestinian cause”.

    So it seems that the EU is lined up more with Iran, Russia & some Arab terrorists than The UK, US or Poland.

My wife and I have sons, two of whom fought in theaters of war in Africa and Bosnia, saw some nasty things, now all married with children of both sexes, I cannot imagine they not knowing of their daughters thoughts however concerning and would never have allowed a young girl to enter such a stable of evilness. A frined of ours who has a daughter a lovely girl of then 25 who went out with a man from Algeria who was a Muslim and who quickly altered this very lovely young womans way of life-she became pregnant, he said he would marry her on condition she go with him to Algeria and have the baby there-he cared not a jot for her but ruined her life and that of her parents-yes as far as we know she lives in Algeria as a slave.

      She has only one option. Start walking to Turkey. They might let her in.

Third World Muslims are not British and do not belong here. They are and always will be quite “other” to the native Brits. Their religion and their values are not ours and their loyalty will always lie elsewhere. We have been, as Enoch Powell said, “literally mad” to allow people like them into our country in such huge numbers. Deport them all now! – unless you are looking forward to civil war.

    Absolutely hilarious that the article mentions the phrase “rising global temperatures”, and the photo is of her wrapped up against the cold wearing a bobble hat……….

    But anyway. I remember when *I* used to bunk off school. It didn’t happen often but usually it was to spend an hour playing on my ZX Spectrum. The weather didn’t bother me back then. It was nice and warm in the summer and quite cold in the winter. A bit like now actually.

    There are many occasions here where the meaning of ‘ far right ‘ is discussed . The BBC use it as much as the term “the” .

    Well today we have clarification on what “Far Right” is . It is those who object to ISIS supporters being allowed to come to their former residence -the UK .

    That was one of the concerns which Beeboids on Toady used today – that the ‘Begum’ creature could be subject to attack by the ‘ Far right’ . When in fact it would have been far better for her to have died as a result of an air strike . In BBC terms the air strike would be ‘ Far right ‘ .

    ‘Heads in bins’

    Is schoolgirl

    There was widespread shock when three British schoolgirls left east London in 2015 to join the Islamic State terror group. Now one of them has said she wants to come home. Speaking to the Times from a refugee camp in Syria, Shamima Begum, now 19 and nine months pregnant, said she had no regrets about going, but had already lost two children and desperately wanted to return to the UK for her third.

    Describing her life in Raqqa – once the stronghold of IS – as the wife of a fighter, she talked about seeing “beheaded heads” in bins, but insisted sights like that did not faze her. The “oppression”, though, had come as a “shock”. One of the other two schoolgirls, Ms Begum said, had died in a bombing. The fate of the third girl is unclear. The UK government says anyone who returns from IS can expect to be investigated by police.

    IS has lost control of most of the territory it once held, but fighting continues in north-east Syria. US President Donald Trump has said total defeat is imminent – here we look at how close that claim is to reality.

    ***

    That statement by the ‘U.K. government’ shows they may have a skull atop their necks but clearly it is empty.

    But at least the bbc is looking at how close anything they get involved with is to reality.

    Lol.

    Right on cue, Al Beeb are heading up Toady this morning with the ‘vulnerable’ 19 year old IS supporter who want to come back to the UK.
    A passing comment was that if she came back to the UK, she would be opposed by ‘extremists of the Far Right’. Yep, Al Beeb regards anyone who opposes her as from the Far Right.
    Meanwhile… one line taken is that she is vulnerable because ‘she is only 19’.
    Funny, that. One minute at age 19 you are vulnerable because of your age but the next minute at 19 you are allowed to vote and some leftmobbers want to reduce the voting age to 16.
    Methinks I smell hypocrisy on that one.
    Mind you, if IS supporters get the vote, that must be good news for the Far Left and Al Beeb.
    The rights of taxpayers of course who would have to fork out millions for her protection, and presumably the state support she would need for her child(ren), giving her needs priority over other needy citizens, are unlikely to feature.

      Whenever you see these things which appear inexplicable you need to ask yourself one simple question – “what does Saudi want”.

      Our politicians are abysmally paid with an MP paid about the same as a departmental head of a secondary school, ministers receiving something similar to the head of an inner city secondary, and the Prime Minister receiving something like a third of what the DG of the BBC gets.

      You cannot be surprised when they seek reward for their efforts elsewhere – you don’t want to pay them, well someone else will and you will not be happy with the consequences.

          Are you serious Lucy? The first Prime Minister WIlliam Walpole was paid the equivalent of £17 million. We have seen what happens when you underpay politicians in BLiar and Clinton – both of whom enriched themselves from the same source.

          At one time MPs were not paid at all and everyone knew that they were there purely to enrich themselves. We ended this practice because only the wealthy could become an MP.

          They are certaily greedy and many are complete egomaniacs, but if you want to pay peanuts then you have to also accept that they will seek enrichment elsewhere, and also accept the consequences of that, one of which is the introduction of Sharia law, Islamisation of the UK, loss of freedoms and growing oppression.

          This is the alternative to paying politicians properly, and you appear to have chosen low pay and the consequences which will inevitably follow.

          Pay them properly and then prevent them from earning anything from foreign sources once they leave office.

          Not a single Ex PM since John Major has taken their entitlement to a peerage, because it would mean disclosing the source of their earnings. And you wonder why ?

              The expenses has been really cracked down on since BLiar suggested they used it to make up their poverty pay.

              Imagine having to run two homes, having to be away from friends and family for all the working week, and then when you did get home being on 24 hour call from unreasonable people often with ridiculous grievances which cannot ever be sorted. The there are the snarling nasties from all sides right & left newspapers, local and sometimes national.
              At one point my local MP who I knew had special forces sleeping in the hall after a credible death threat.

              The pay for an MP is only £77,379 and I can hear the cries of well that’s a lot, but the average wage for a 40 hour week is now £35K in London, and MPs are not working a 40 hour week. There is no way on Gods green earth I would do it for that pittance.

              And don’t forget you are also expected to open your own home up for various functions, and to pay towards charities functions etc etc.

              It should come as no surprise that only the privately wealthy on all sides of the house can make it in politics. Both sides front benches are stuffed with Ex public school elites with their own personal ideas of what they are really worth.

              This is a consequence of the appalling poor pay.

                The basic annual salary for an MP from 1 April 2018 is £77,379. MPs also receive expenses to cover the costs of running an office, employing staff, having somewhere to live in London or their constituency, and travelling between Parliament and their constituency.

                Accountants calculate that MPs avoid an average of more than £54,000 a year in tax on parliamentary expenses claims which, according to official figures, usually exceed £135,000 each. Second home allowances and other expenses average more than double the MPs’ basic salary.

            I understand where you’re coming from, considering the old ‘corrupt boroughs’ and so on, but surely, it could be argued that only the ‘wealthy’ still become MPs, and they are still, by and large, only there to enrich themselves.

            With the closure of most grammar schools in the 70s and the imposition of ‘tuition fees’ for University in the 90s, it’s arguably getting far harder for those from ‘lower middle’ and ‘working’ class backgrounds to get in to office as well.

            If you look at the HOC there is a remarkably high percentage of elite fee paying school and Oxbridge graduates (in law and politics) represented… and remarkably little of anything else. Considering the MPs are supposed to represent such a wide cross section of society, that is remarkable, is it not? And don’t give me that guff about ‘ability'(!)

            I’ve always wondered why the: Defence Minister shouldn’t need military experience, the Minister of Education, teaching experience, the Minister of Science and Technology a degree in Science, or Engineering, and experience working in those fields … and so on.

    TOADY Watch #2

    Justremainin Webb talks with the Mayor of London on his bid for £1.5bn of taxpayers money to splash on his daft schemes. The token interruption & token interrogation was just a wee bit obvious.

    The lack of technical knowledge on Webb’s part to enable him to challenge the Mayor’s outrageous claims was shameful.

    I thought one of the reasons TOADIES had to get up so early was that they had to be briefed by the Editors du Jour and PREPARE in advance for the programme. Justremainin might well have turned up at 5.50pm today and simply read his part from the PC screen.

      Obviously no-one looks at the DfT annual report which shows pollution from vehicles is down by about 50% over the last 10 years or so.
      It’s just another way for the Far Left to collectivise us by banning private transport in favour of socialist public transport.
      Transport being the source of only a quarter of the pollution they claim to want to reduce. Strangely, concrete production, alone accounting for 8% of CO2 production, seems not to get a mention (needed for Crossrail, HS2, all the new City skyscrapers etc etc).
      Do as I say, not as I do.

    At least a bit more actual detail, revealing the bbc has tried to make an Olympus Mons out of Marvin’s Morning dump.

    And, as ever, failed everywhere but in its dire little bubble.

    The next media mistress:

    Rachel Jupp
    Editor, BBC Panorama

    Rachel Jupp is editor of BBC Panorama. Appointed to the role in 2016, she was previously head of home news at Channel 4 News and deputy editor at Newsnight. First broadcast in 1953, Panorama is the world’s longest-running current affairs programme, turning the lens on criminals, corporations and governments to expose wrongdoing. In this in-depth interview, Rachel describes the significant responsibility of taking on challenging investigations, discusses the importance of impartiality in pursuing stories “without fear or favour” – and explains how their report on the gender pay gap demonstrates that even the BBC itself is not immune from investigation.

    So, Isis bride, the delightful Shamima Begum, has found herself “up the duff” and has decided that Blighty seems a better prospect for her and her prospective sprog than a refugee camp in Syria. She wants to “come home.” And do you know the absolutely insane thing is…we’ll probably let her!
    I sometimes think Britain is becoming a bloody lunatic asylum. I’ve heard people on LBC arguing for her return and that denying this vile slut her “human rights” is “racism.” I don’t doubt that some on the extreme left will be having a whip round for her and arranging accommodation in a luxury apartment in Islington.
    Let’s try to get some semblance of sanity into this argument. She knowingly traveled to a war torn area to join up with an Islamo-fascist murderous regime; Nazis in Hijabs. No one can have had any doubts about the people she and her pals were joining.
    This wasn’t a schoolgirl prank, like some starry eyed twerps running off to meet rock stars. This lot are hard core fanatics. She doesn’t regret what she did and has bragged about seeing beheaded heads in bins and saying she wasn’t fazed.
    Fifty odd years ago the late, great Enoch said “We must be mad; stark staring, raving mad”. He can have had no idea just how utterly insane our country was going to become.
    Of course, we have no politician in Britain today of his honesty, intelligence and calibre.
    I wonder what Trump would do?

        Compare and contrast the way the BBC portray this ‘schoolgirl’ (at 19?), and say Jon Venables (one of the two very young lads involved in the murder of James Bulgar).

        Venables has never been right in the head, and never will be, he continues to harm people when he’s not imprisoned. I strongly suspect this girl is no different, she says so herself when she says she’s not fazed by the cruel tortures inflicted on innocent people by ISIS, or seeing severed heads in buckets. If she wasn’t a crazed psycho before she left the UK to join ISIS, she is now.

        In both cases I can’t really think of better arguments for the death sentence, not so much because I’m ‘heartless’ and want to see young people killed, but because I very much have a kind heart and hate to think of these people going through life wrecking the lives of other, completely innocent people – which they will continue to do, unless imprisoned, or put out of their misery, and we all know prison sentences in the UK are very short, and criminals have ‘rights’ (including, it seems, the right to harm other people).

        So she’s preggers, well in the past when a pregnant woman was due to be hanged in the UK she was given a stay of execution until after the birth (the child is, of course, innocent of her crimes)… then she was hanged and the child placed in care. Sounds fair enough to me.

      On radio Newcastle this morning we heard the presenter admit that 16-17 year olds don’t know what they are doing.
      Of course, this is about this IS ‘child’ ‘woman’ ‘schoolgirl’ who wants to come ‘home’ and not about giving the vote to 16 year olds who DO know what they are doing when it suits.

Just under the sub headline “why did the airbus fail” is the words ” Brexit uncertainty a disgrace says airbus” … this is a article from last month and no relevance what so ever but they just cannot leave Brexit out of it !! Pathetic BIAS.

      Doobster,
      It’s beyond me what our far left Marxist State Broadcaster hopes to achieve by ubiquitous attachment of Brexit to every piece of news. I imagine that most of the population will be acutely aware of the BBC’s efforts to circumvent the 2016 Referendum. So, who do they hope to influence? Beats me.

        GW,
        Yes, increasingly one of those days when you personally feel embarrassed to declare you are a Brit. The ruling elite has allowed this continuing deterioration to take place. It’s now all liberal and leftie desires that take precedent over any common sense that’s left. Sickening, truly sickening.
        There is only one way to stop the liberal/leftie train in its tracks. That is to somehow engineer a tax strike. The only event that will halt all the financing of the stupidity which is solely at the taxpayers’ expense.
        As an aside, did anybody hear our Laura Coonsberg on Toady earlier this morning? In answer to a question posed by the twerp Nick Robinson, she answered: “Certainly maybe”. Just about sums it up.

      If in the Second World War a Brit had left to help Germany, then they wouldn’t count as British citizen, cos their action is the same as renouncing your citizenship.
      We wouldn’t have said “Now we’ve beaten Germany all you guys can come back and live in the UK.”

      Now since the Islamic state doesn’t exist anymore, she’d have to go somewhere ..the intelligence services should play a part in deciding where, but not automatically back to the UK.

    I can see that before long Shamina Begum from Bethnal
    Green will be given a spot on The Londonistan Proramme
    as a presenter or reporter .when she returns from Syria.

    BUT should she be given time to radicalize her baby before
    being offered a job by the BBC ?
    To be honest she would probably be able to keep calm and
    show no emotion if she was sent out to report on another
    Lee Rigby slaughter.
