    Me first!

    Might as well start if off by drawing attention to Nicola Sturgeon’s call for another Scottish independence referendum which the BBC has referred to as ‘indyref2’. Why does everything have to be given a hip slogan these days? Very annoying and, anyway, I wish she would just foff2.

      Well done, chancy.

      [Grrrr …. and I was saving this for a first place post 🙂 ]

      Something remarkable has happened to Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, this week. He appears to have caught the BBC’s memory loss. He cut Base Rate in half shortly after the EU Referendum result was known because ‘the poor state of the UK economy demanded it’. That helped to collapse Sterling, which the BBC and Remainers have been talking or complaining about ever since.

      Now Governor Carney says that there would be an unfavourable impact on the UK economy if we leave the EU without a deal on 29 March and Base Rate may have to be INCREASED.

      Er, what?

      Maybe he should seek some help, Help the Aged? Medical help?

        Mr Carney is what happens when you let the vampire squid, Goldman Sachs, control your money.
        Mr Carney should have been sent packing a long time ago; in fact, he should never have been appointed governor of the Bank of England in the first place. Have we been so hollowed out and enervated by over 40 years of EU buggery that we no longer have any Englishmen to run things?
        Judging by the quality of the swamp dwellers in the HoP, I think the answer must be yes.

        This is about an hour long so probably to long for many to watch but the treatment of Brian and Janice Docherty is almost to incredible to believe.

        In summary, because they reported someone, who happens to be a mate of a peer, to the Scottish police for offering money to them so he could have sex with their five year old autistic son, they have been driven out of Scotland and persecuted by just about every agency in the Scottish, English, Irish and Northern Irish governing organisms. And had all four of their children taken from them and been deprived of all contact with them. They believe all of the children have been adopted but by whom, they don’t know. The video is about three years old so I don’t know the current situation but no doubt Brian Gerrish is still in contact with them.

        I hope I didn’t offend anyone as my reply was directly below the couple as seen above who have had their children taken off them, and could have been taken as an insult of the couple in video.

    GW, Re: Yr. last post, Start the Week.
    With respect, the graph you post is practically unimportant. More important is the influx from other parts of the third World. To June 2018 the figure is 273,000 totally dwarfing the EU stats. Check out: https://www.migrationwatchuk.org/statistics-net-migration-statistics
    In part, thanks to our muslim Home Secretary who shows the public how tough he is on one hand in stopping the Begum woman. He’s on safe ground knowing the courts will consider her, ‘Human Rights’ when they make their decision to permit her to, ‘come home’ perhaps with the bastard in tow. Conversely we cannot see how many muslims are within that 273K. I’ll wager it is the majority. Thanks muslim Home Sec. Your strings are being pulled by the Middle East and your Globalist masters.
    We are all in the process of witnessing something extraordinarily ‘big’ going down. I think most people are too close to see what’s going on. The UK’s political elite are utterly out of control and it will take something like a coup to pull up on the reigns quickly. The motivation for the lunacy knows no bounds. It is as if the continuance of the current formation of the political parties can be sacrificed. But for what? The people are no longer considered entitled to a comment and looking at their options to stand up now and demand the nonsense stops immediately (if they were even inclined to tear themselves away from Coronation Street/Eastenders/Footie) only goes to demonstrate how much weight they pool is virtually zero. The State has, over the decades, gradually and by stealth, put laws into place such that it is now impossible to challenge the State. Farage and his ‘Jarrow’ march? Waste of time. It won’t change anything. The political process means we cannot even, within a reasonable period of time, (and currently it is urgent), demand change and given time, this current lot will wriggle out of harms way pretty quickly. Proof? – Look at the decaying state of Brexit – need I say more? That over just over 2 years for them to turn that round just enough to leave a fictitious veneer on the current outcome that offers a vague hint of democracy having been applied. The situation is serious. More so than any other in my lifetime.

        Come on! It’s peanuts, and as a result we have monkeys! However the USA has a population of 325 million and 425 Representatives, the UK has a population of 66 million and 650 MPs !

        The salary of a Representative is a healthy $174 000 pa plus expenses, and after two years service the salary is theirs for life, whether they stand or not.

        A US representative is elected by 750 000 people, a British MP by just 100 000 and there is the problem. If we represented the people on the same ratio there would be just 90 MPs in the commons obviously far too low, but at least half of them need to be culled and paid a respectable amount to attract half decent talent and not monkeys.

      G,
      Completely agree with you. I have thought for some time now that Brexit will lead to increased third world immigration into the UK. It is a big worry to me. On the one hand I want out of the EU for reasons of sovereignty and democracy but on the other I think most of the Brexiteer politicians will be happy to see us importing more non EU cheaplabour . Mind you so would most EU non populist politicos.
      I really think that there is no UK based solution to preventing third world immigration , our politicians just dare not address it even if they wanted to and building a party that would in our FPTP system will take too long. Our only hope is that populism wins the day in the EU and turns back the invaders and helps us to do the same. Our salvation, if there is to be one, lies outside these islands.

    GAB

    Earlier this week Gab launched our new sister product, Dissenter: the comment section of the internet. Dissenter is a browser extension and website that allows any Gab user to comment on any URL across the web. This includes Youtube videos, Wikipedia pages, Tweets, Amazon products, and CNN articles just to name a few examples. Tens of thousands of Gab users have already installed it and have begun leaving comments across the web.

    Dissenter puts the power back in the hands of The People to shine a light on propaganda, lies, censorship, corruption, and sophistry across the web. Dissenter launches at a time when comment sections are no longer available on every mainstream news site and blog, YouTube is shutting down comment sections while also demonetizing channels over their comment sections, and social media censorship is the worst it has ever been.

    Dissenter creates a new layer on top of the entire internet. One that is powered by The People, not Silicon Valley or the mainstream media.

    You can sign into Dissenter.com with your Gab account to get started. You can also install the browser extension from the Google Chrome Extension Store, the Firefox Add-on Store, and check out our download page for other browsers.

    Thank you,

      See, how devious these gay stormtroopers really are. It was a BBC employee who sent her the question. Trying to incite May to be against trans etc then the whole pink media would no doubt be outraged against May and her party.

      Devious is putting it lightly.

      They should record it live and choose the guests and audience by lot; questions asked impromptu without having been previously selected by Beeb staff.

      Instead they cleverly choose the audience, guests and questions – often even planting people in the audience to state a Beeb narrative to suggest normal people think like they do when of course they do not. It is just the sort of show Winston Smith might be executive producer for.

    Tried my best, no, really I did, to watch the QT/Barry Gardiner Show all through but when the Palestinian LibDem got on to climate change that was just too much.
    Before that though, at the start when the subject was Brexit, at length, one thing stood out. The government were quite rightly castigated from all sides for the shambles they have made over the past 2 and more years. All agreed on that. But nobody, not one panel member, no single person in the audience, mentioned the EU and the part it has played in orchestrating the debacle. Cleverly, no doubt of that, but to our shame they have played us like a fiddle and history will show that the whole charade has been shameful for this country, for democracy, and for the EU itself – exposed as a totalitarian and despicable political junta.
    The fact that not one person had the courage and perception to point that simple fact out illustrates how duped we have been.

      Agree entirely that it takes two to make a deal and that the EU have been deliberately obstructive by making it as difficult as possible for us to leave. Even more incomprehensible is the idea that ‘no deal’ should be ruled out because that is really the only bargaining chip that we have. I was delighted when the audience turned on Gardiner because all he wanted to do was to try and score political points against the government using illogical arguments based on not recognising the truth of what you have identified. Whilst I don’t want to accept it I now believe that the ‘establishment’ will not allow any sort of brexit to happen.

      The other thing that struck me was how poorly informed the LibDem person was about the realities of Climate Change and in fact the only person on the panel able to speak the truth was the American writer. She identified the futility of the UK spending hundreds of £Billions on decarbonising when our contribution is so tiny compared to that of larger nations. In particular she also recognised that we run the real risk of not being able to supply our own energy needs. Imho most of our politicians are running scared of the far left media like the #BiasedBBC who control what a very large section of society believes.

      It is already too late to reverse any of this this now when the corrupt organisation won’t even allow any debate on the subjects – ‘auntie’ knows best

        I appreciate that ‘times change’, but at what point in the last few decades did the young male species devolve from being a ‘grown up’ and possibly married with responsibilities in their early 20s, to the specimens we see now who are still literally children playing on their X boxes at the same age ?

        I would say that the age comparison of those young fighter pilots in WW2 in their late teens/early 20’s, would be around 40 now.

        None of us are happy at ageing, and want to retain our youthfulness for as long as possible, but those in their 20’s now have no better intelligence than the teenagers of my era – 50 odd years ago. In fact, we were probably more mature during those years than this lot are now.

    David Lammy showboating and grandstanding again as he attacks the BBC’s Comic Relief…#metoo #metoo #metoo. It’s really all about Lammy getting his face on TV and in the papers. Lammy is a racist and a race-baiter using race ‘outrage’ purely as a prop for his brilliant career. He’s little different from the slavers who exploited black people for their own gain, except they were more honest not claiming as Lammy does that he is doing this for the benefit of black people when the reality is that it is only one black person who benefits from his outraged moral squawking…himself.

    Now he’s found another piece of white perfidy to object to….

    ‘”My problem with British celebrities being flown out by Comic Relief to make these films is that it sends a distorted image of Africa which perpetuates an old idea from the colonial era.
    “Comic Relief is a 20-year-old formula that asks comedians to perform and sends celebrities – most often white – out to Africa, and that image evokes for lots of ethnic minorities in Britain, a colonial image of a white beautiful heroine holding a black child, with no agency, no parents in sight.”

    Would he object if it was a ‘beautiful black heroine’? This is outright racism from Lammy. Curiously the BBC doesn’t notice even as he lambasts their white, working class heroine whom they’ve dragged from the gutter and turned, Eliza Doolittle-like, into a liberal, middle-class stepford-wife who mouths all those platitudes about poverty, race and religion that the BBC demands….she was of course employed because, as the BBC told us, she displayed the correct amount of empathy, humanity and right-on thinking that is a must to work for the BBC….never mind a desire for accuracy, impartiality and honesty….and ironically she’s from Luton….Tommy Robinson could be her if he’d played his cards right and made out that his “USP is sympathy” as Dooley tells us is her winning strategy.

    Lammy is not just a racist and a race-baiter but a hypocrit…one year ago on Question Time he said this….

    ‘In the end we in this country and other Western countries, also have to remember the role we played in the carve up of the African continent, the Indian continent, and our imperialist and colonialist past that means whilst we need reforms in aid it would be absolutely objectionable for this country to withdraw from its international obligations to the very poorest in the world’

    He has raised objections about Comic Relief before demanding they get involved in politics and be flag-wavers for political change in African countries….

    ‘Most of all, Comic Relief should challenge its audience not just to feel guilty, but angry…. There was little or no discussion about what caused the poverty presented to us, let alone what the long-term solutions might be.

    This year things must be different. We must have voices debating debt and dictatorship, trade agreements and climate change, education and entrepreneurship – not just appeals for people to phone in and pledge a few pounds.
    Those that want to hide in the sanctuary of the charity’s “non-political” status should ask what solutions aren’t political when famines never take place in a functioning democracy.

    Comic Relief should have higher expectations of itself and its audience – we can still be charitable even when the message is laden with politics.’

    Quite, quite clear he wants a charity to bring about political change, to bring democracy and end corruption and dictatorships in Africa.

    Hang on….he objects to a white girl holding a black baby and whitters on about colonialism and imperialism and then wants white people to run African countries? He whinges loudly about aid going to Africa being colonialist and at the same time insists, due to our colonialist past, we are duty bound to cough up billions in aid.

    He’s a dumb-ass hypocrit and racist showboater exploiting race issues, supposed race issues, in fact inventing most of them himself, in order to get his face on TV.

    If bumptious buffoons like Lammy, not forgetting the low-grade Stalin, the pound-shop Putin and clapped out Cleopatra that head the Labour Party [oh and the tea-lady that runs the Tory Party], are the best that democracy can produce let’s have Henry VIII back!

        Here are some of the questions that Lammy was asked on Mastermind and answered incorrectly:

        1) What was the married name of the scientists Marie and Pierre who won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1903 for their research into radiation? Lammy’s Answer: Antoinette

        2) Which fortress was built in the 1370s to defend one of the gates of Paris, and was later used as a state prison by Cardinal Richelieu?
        Lammy’s answer: Versailles

        3) Who succeeded to the English throne aged nine on the death of his father Henry VIII in 1547?: Lammy’s Answer: Henry VII (must have been that tear in the space time continuum).

        Lammy often shows by his ignorant outbursts just how thick he is. I laughed at his comments about the papal smoke but this overlooked gem by Lammy highlights the arrogance, stupidity and narcissism of the prominent Labour MP:

      Well put Pugnazious, personally I do support Comic Relief mainly because so much of the money raised goes outside this nation. Only those charities that raise funds to help people in the UK have any real meaning for me-uptteen £millions is sent overseas so often to areas that are in fact quite capable of helping themselves and shouldnt need charity. Out of interest are there as many charitable organisations in Europe as there are in the UK? I doub it, in fact when living in France for a number of years I came across none, other than a Telephon and I think it was for children only, started by Madam Chirac.

    Fedup2, I was briefly worried by the ‘Long weekend’ thread title. Had the UK brought in some new national holiday this Monday during my years in Australia? Mandela Day, perhaps? Windrush Day? Obama Day? Lord Reith Day? Dimbleby Day?

    Mind you, I suspect any new holiday will be a day of shame. I predict a reworking of the old Empire Day (now Commonwealth Day, in March). ‘Let’s beat ourselves up about the Empire Day’ will give indigenous Britons the opportunity to cringe through the streets in sackcloth and ashes while being ceremonially whipped by Hope not Hate.

      Ant-Jewish conspiracy theories

      A Labour peer was suspended from the party yesterday for allegedly suggesting a Jewish plot led to him being jailed after a fatal car crash.

      Lord Ahmed is said to have claimed that he was being punished because of his support for the Palestinian cause in an interview for a Pakistan TV station.

      He reportedly said: “My case became more critical because I went to Gaza to support Palestinians.

      “My Jewish friends who own newspapers and TV channels opposed this.”

      He also allegedly told an Urdu-language broadcast that the judge who jailed him for 12 weeks was appointed to the High Court after helping a “Jewish colleague” of Tony Blair.

        Is there really anything good that has come from allowing a flood of Asian migrants into this country ? What did the good folk of Rotherham do to deserve the pond life that now inhabit that town ? To have a migrant born in Kashmir take the name of that mining town in his baronetcy is utterly shameful. I wonder when he last set foot down a coal mine. The Rotherham swamp needs draining. I know many in the town who refuse to use any taxi driven or owned by an Asian, but sadly this is one place where you will see an abundance of mixed marriages.

      Where or why has this Anti-Semetism arisen from? The Jews have always known and accepted the outward appearance of opposition-most of my working life I worked amongst Jews, those that came to the UK before WW2 brought a better attitude of respect to their new country that gave them safety, as against those Jews who arrived during and after WW2, their behaviour changed the face of my industry (Clothes Manufacturing) the rise of the barrow boys from the East End like Philip Green evolved, bringing their inappropriateness/unsuitability/unstable elements to the trade and in fact to many of the older Jew as I know. However let us not forget the enormous power the Jews hold in the financial markets, especially that of Rothschild, who for over 200 yrs have had all the central banks in Europe under their control and that includes the EU obviously. They are major shareholders in the Federal Reserve, their banking arm stretches around the world, so don’t let us get carried away by all this so called Anti-Semetism-it’s duplicity isquite apparant

    Radio5live this morning and that Campbell chappie and his fellow female host:

    2 male Remain voters. well spoken , educated.

    1 very young female Leave voter.

    The two men came over as very calm, as if they have had experience in public speaking, in politics or buisness but the female sounded to me as if she hadn’t the foggiest idea what the other 4 were talking about?

    Its as if the BBC Radio five live car had pulled up at the nearest bus stop and had asked a young woman who was taking a selfie of herself to come down to the studio and answer a few questions on Brexit.

    Campbell chappie gave the men plenty of time to answer their questions without cutting them short . But with the poor woman he not only kept cutting her short but its the voice he did it in. Very snotty, looking down his nose at her because she was a leve voter.

    At the end of the interview Campbell, asked fellow female host:

    its friendly Friday again, are you friendly with anyone today?

    Host replied:

    Well, I know that I’m friends with at least two 2 people this Friday laughing. As she said this I could just see both of them eye-balling the leave voter as she walking out of studio all the while blowing kisses to their 2 male remainer guests who were probably staying behind for a coffee with both BBC hosts. Very toxic atmosphere, very toxic attitude. The BBC building should be cleansed and those employees who treat their fellow citizens like that because she voted leave should be dismissed.

    Compare and contrast.

    The BBC has run a relentless campaign of abuse, mockery and outright lies towards Donald Trump and has made him headline news ever since he announced his run for the Presidency. Justin Trudeau on the other hand, regardless of what he does, such as ban single male Muslims from coming to Canada as they’re trouble, he gets a free pass from the BBC and lots of positive press…him being a lovey dovey liberal bleeding-heart type of guy. Compare the coverage of that ban on single, male, Muslim migrants [zilch] to Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’ as the BBC called it and the outrage that generated…despite it being a ban on travel from ‘countries of concern’ as defined by Obama’s administration….and they just happen to be Muslim, that is where the terrorism and extremism came from.

    Here’s a BBC headline today…a small headline tucked away on the world page…oh no, just checked, it’s been bumped up to the frontpage…but way on down as an item of interest not real news….‘People want Trudeau to resign…here’s why’

    Once you get there you get this…

    ‘Trudeau and Wilson-Raybould: The scandal that could unseat Canada’s PM
    ‘A simmering political scandal involving Justin Trudeau and his ex-attorney general came to the boil dramatically this week.

    Now, people are calling on him to resign. ‘

    A scandal of epic proportions [it is Canada] came to the boil this week and you’d hardly know if you relied on the BBC to tell you about it. People are demanding Trudeau resign and this isn’t headline news, not a top story?…not on the world page and certainly not on the BBC frontpage.

    Merkel on her way out, Trudeau in deep doodoo and Macron not far behind, so, I await the EU elections with interest to see if the EU skeptics can take back control….and the BBC meltdown if they do.

    The Liberal world in retreat…and ironically it’s the liberal world’s own fault…for being less than liberal…imposing mass immigration and an undemocratic, autocratic, unelected EU bureaucracy to rule over us, a Bureaucracy that treats us with contempt and arrogance.

    They just don’t get it.

    From The Daily Telegraph front page (today 1/3/2019):

    “An epidemic of gang violence that thousands of children have been caught up in will only be curtailed if ministers admit it largely affects black youths, the former race watchdog chief says today.

    Writing in the Daily Telegraph, Trevor Phillips calls for an ‘open and honest’ discussion …

    The former chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission accuses politicians, police and the BBC of ‘whitewashing’ the issue, comparing the problem to the grooming scandals in which predominantly British Pakistani Muslim men targeted young white girls who were ignored for years because of the fear of being labelled ‘racist and Islamophobic’.

    … … …

    Mr Phillips, … writes: ‘Evidence shows that the wave of killings and maiming are assassinations of black children by black children, often directed by adult drug dealers. Yet, to read our newspapers and listen to our media, you would imagine that race played no part at all. The BBC in particular is guilty of whitewashing the truth’. He adds: ‘The daily parade of dark faces in items about knife crime tell their own story.’

    Leroy Logan, founder of the Black Police Association, said: ‘This is a wider issue than race. This is a class issue; this is about urban deprivation.’

    You have seriously got to laugh at this deluded, pug faced little runt ..

    “The Few Left Wing Journalists ” really Owen …few ?????

    I hate this fella with a passion , but what i hate most is folk who can give it out, but cant take it. Owen is a case in point. Remember him calling on everyone to get down to the Council Offices after Grenfell to stir up trouble when tensions were high ….. he was inciting violence but hes from the far left so that was OK, its protesting. Other way round, its far right thuggery !!!

    BBC still lying about Seaborne Freight….Humphrys ths morning claimed the company ‘had no ships’…and this lie is repeated on the website…

    ‘Shortly after it was awarded the contract, the BBC found out that Seaborne had no ships and had never run a ferry service.’

    The company had ships…it was leasing them from an Irish company which in fact had a majority holding in Seaborne Freight…and look, the BBC’s report has this sentence above the previous one admitting there is another angle to this….just decidiing not to spell out exactly what that was…

    ‘One of the firms awarded a ferry contract, Seaborne Freight, has already had its deal cancelled after the Irish company backing it pulled out.’

    Coyly phrased so as not to admit the ‘backing’ included providing ships….so the company did in fact have ships…a fact that the BBC’s investigative journalism did not ‘find out’….and even now doesn’t care about.

    BBC just trying to stir the anti-Brexit pot and make out everything is chaos and disaster….no mention that the Irish company was probably leaned upon by the EU or the Irish government to withdraw…why do so otherwise when they have invested so much time and money into the project, apparently spending two years researching the possibility of a service from Ramsgate?

    Project Veritas : is anyone up to spec ?
    As ever when the libmob threw out accusations against Russians/Trump hacking the info market, it seems that was an indication that libmob via their insiders at Facebook/Twitter are the ones who are actually doing that rigging.

      I believe the term for this in psychology is “projection”, i.e. accusing others of doing things that you are doing yourself, consciously or unconsciously. Hence frequent evocation of Right-wing “fascism” by the Fascist Left.

    Well, well, I couldn’t find this on the BBC (OK, I know I shouldn’t be surprised, this is the Brexit-Bashing Corporation after all):

    https://order-order.com/2019/02/28/brexiteers-march-sunderland-westminster/

    At least, when I typed in “BBC news “march” (i.e., the word “march” must appear in the results) for leave Farage”, I did get The Express report:

    https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1093922/brexit-news-leave-means-leave-march-nigel-farage-sunderland-london-brexit-betrayal

    Sunderland to London! Wow! The BBC will have to turn up in Sunderland again! How sad! (Betcha it is an unpopular posting).

    17.4 million cheers for the Leave Marchers!

      The correct Google would be
      : site:bbc.co.uk “farage” “Brexit” “Sunderland
      … It’s pointless to use the word “march” in the month of “March”

      … Date limiting the search shows that No the BBC web team haven’t mentioned it yet

      Meanwhile the Channel4 chap shows he’s an sneering idiot
      \\ @MichaelLCrick
      And how far will Farage himself actually march? Chester-le-Street? //
      …doh, Chester-le-Street is Northwest of Sunderland so in the wrong direction.

        Some Welch Politician was on the world at one explaining that leaving the EU will be bad for Blighty so was plotting to stop. I was waiting for the Mardell to ask if the 17 million can be ignored that easily but the question never came .

        With over 2 years gone since the vote it shows how the bubble continues to treat the democratic vote as ‘void’ .

        Can’t see this country have much time or respect for politicians for a very long time .

          My own MP (Liz Saville-Roberts of Plaid Cymru, not that I would ever vote for her but she is all I have got) recently sent me an email in which she told me “Thank you for making your views known to me and I assure you I will continue to do my utmost to ensure that we don’t leave the European Union.“. Democracy? Who needs it?

    The Sun do a front page plus 2-page spread on this piece of filth whose quaint etnic hobby it was to give his ‘girlfriends’ lethal drugs and video them agonise, or in the case of Holby actor’s daughter Louella Fletcher-Mitchie – die.
    The Beeb, meh, not too bothered, for some inexplicable reason – let’s stick it under Dorset.

    (I wonder if her showbiz parents thought it was cool to have their daughter date a drug-dealing rapper? There used to be an adage that a liberal was just a conservative who hadn’t been mugged yet. Perhaps it should be updated to a liberal is a conservative whose daughter hasn’t been culturally enriched yet.)

      “I wonder if her showbiz parents thought it was cool to have their daughter date a drug-dealing rapper…..”

      Who knows ? but I’d rather bet it was more likely they were far from happy, in the same way that Philip Green’s daughter has a baby sired by a convicted felon, I imagine his head practically exploded behind closed doors, but teenage daughters have always been truculent and push the boundaries with Mum and Dad. Parents hope they ‘grow out of it’ rather than put their foot down, and how many would want to face cries of “is it because he’s black ?” – then what do you say ?

    BBC reporting that watching over three hours of television a day can have a negative impact on the brain for people over 50. Might I suggest that it’s not the amount of time spent watching TV that is the problem, but the amount of tripe that’s on it.
