Start the Week Open Thread 11 March 2019

Maybe the coming week will finally determine whether democracy is achieved after the Brexit Vote or whether the Far Left BBC and other anti democracy organisations and individuals will continue to be agents for the EU .

    Times2 has a grudging article on Turning Point and Charlie Kirk ..the voice of that conservative student association
    He’s visiting the UK

    “Health Secretary Matt Hancock said there was an “incredible” amount of respect for the PM in the country.”
    Which country?
    Certainly not the UK, we all hate and despise her.

    Pro-Brexit ads are ‘dark’

    “So it is that dark ads are a constant influence in our democracy. For donors, they are precious. For lawmakers, they are an urgent threat. And for voters, they are an untimely exposure, given democracy is currently enduring something akin to a recession.”

    “Over the past three months, Britain’s Future, a pro-Brexit group, has spent more on political advertising on Facebook than anyone – more even than the People’s Vote.”

    ‘More even than the People’s vote’? Why is that a surprise? Brexit won the referendum, it’s more popular.

    And why is it good when George Soros funds anti-Brexit stuff but bad when someone else funds pro-Brexit ads

      Ah yes, Amol Rajan. Can’t decide whether he’s my favourite broadcaster, or Evan Davis.
      I think the diamond earring and the fast talking may just swing it in Amol’s favour. On the other hand, Evan has the sort of ears made for diamond earrings, so if he got himself a dashing little number…
      So hard to decide.

    Here’s the bBBC version of a story that was in the Belfast Telegraph that I posted about this morning, very similar, apart from the clickbait headline that suggests McGuinness received recognition from the US military not some ill-informed Democrat Mayoress.

    The bBBC of course give the last word on this matter to Sinn Fein. No mention yet of the story currently headlining the Tele, the invitation extended to London Breed, the San Francisco mayoral moron in question, from Arlene Foster to visit Northern Ireland to witness the real legacy left by the murdering pos.

    A couple of weeks a hostel dweller died from a drug overdose in my hometown. It turned out he had served time for his involvement in a highly publicised murder about a decade ago and is no loss to society. The hostel for the homeless, run by the Simon Community, became the centre of a great deal of local protest and national interest. BBC NI had at least 5 articles on it, the hostel is now in the process of relocating.

    One of the Simon Community’s “clients” was stabbed in the same building last night. How do I know? A local independent website filled me in. The bBBC? Nothing.

    Two simple examples, not necessarily of bias, but of just how useless and slow and uninterested in local issues the bBBC have become, no longer the first place to look for anything.

    So a Boeing 737 has crashed in Africa and the BBC have been banging on about it all day long. Of course any air crash is a tragedy but the BBC have really been laying it on with a trowel, it was only later this evening I find out why.

    The plane was stuffed with do gooding hand wringers from the UN, and there were aid workers, environmentalists, medical staff etc etc. In fact it doesn’t appear that wasn’t an actual native African not employed by the UN on the flight!

    No wonder the BBC are so upset !


    • The Sage says:

      Sadly, your comment is not entirely accurate. Our company uses excellent carrier Ethiopian almost every month. Even taking that early flight from Addis to Nairobi, which connects with the overnight from London.
      We also lost two clients in the crash and also Jonathan Seex, the chief executive of the Tamarind Group in Nairobi – owners of Carnivore and a range of upmarket hotels in Kenya.
      OK, there were many freeloading and useless NGOs on the plane but there were plenty of other decent people on the flight and who lost their lives.

    So the Irish announce the British PM is taking her begging bowl to the EUReich again . It’s good that she’s going to Strasberg because it will give her more to draft the tearful resignation speech .
    You can imagine the glee in the ReichEU bunker as she walks in to beg and they know she will get nothing . As I’ve said – they really want us out so that they can get on with the francogerman control of Europe. Until the oil and gas gets turned off that is.

  10. Fedup2 says:

    Comrade John snow said on twitter tonight that c4 news would have ‘revelations ‘ about JRM and the ERG ok. So I switched on only to find poor comrade Snow having some kind of rabid attack about the ups and downs of Brexit negotiations .

    These MSM journos seems close to the edge of insanity in their inability to grasp that the deal/sell out is merely a device to frustrate the Democratic vote of the citizens of the UK.

    There is meant to be some kind of announcement Monday night at 2100 London time which I bet will be an announcement of A50….
    Please have a no deal …..please


    • Fedup2 says:

      So I waited for comrade Snow on c4 news to ditch the dirt on JRM and company but mysteriously it never happened

      Instead I had to suffer comrade Alex Thompson spend 6 minutes as an IRA apologist attacking the Parachute Regiment
      For `’bloody Sunday “ (1972 ) again with that tired old ‘Families fight for justice ‘ crap. – when really it’s just a propaganda exercise for Republic terrorists on sabbatical .

      Now I’ve known a few Paras including blokes who ‘did’ NI and they have been of the opinion that if they had’ lost control’ as contended there would have been a lot more dead than the list for that day .
      Obviously Alex Thompson made no reference to the murders committed by terrorists or to the likes or Warren Point . But that’s no surprise .

      I haven’t seen C4 news for a long time and I’m glad I have not . Just snowflake propaganda .

    BBC Online News:

    “”Brexit: 10 ways you could be affected by no-deal””

    1. “”What you find on the supermarket shelves COULD well be where you see the first effects.””

    2. “”If you intend to drive in the EU after exit, you MAY need an International Driving Permit and a green card from your insurer.””

    3. “”You MAY need to check medication is available and it may be more expensive””

    4. “”UK nationals living abroad MAY have to take extra measures””

    5. Genuine Advice.

    6. “”Importing goods MAY get more expensive””

    7. “”House prices COULD be affected

    8. “”Mobile phone roaming charges MAY rise””

    9. “”Some ports and motorways COULD see extra delays””

    10. “”UK students studying in the EU and EU students studying in the UK face a period of UNCERTAINTY””

    So there you have it. BBC and their anti-Brexit bias hung by their own petard.

  24. thirdoption says:

    The Newstatesman magazine has an article telling us what the residents of Peterborough think about their jailbird of an MP, Fiona Onasanya

    Several residents were asked whether they would sign the recall petition which requires 10% of eligible voters, in order to have her effectively sacked from parliament.

    Everyone agreed that she was a disgrace to Peterborough and not fit to be an MP but one resident, Grace Minto-Sampson, a 22 yr old sociology student, said that she didn’t want to sign the recall because it was a really big thing to have a black, female, Labour MP.

    The definition of racism is “prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.”

    In believing that it is more important to have a black, female, Labour Party MP who is a liar and convicted criminal, than it is to have an honest white MP, this individual is guilty of racism in the extreme. Not that she’ll come in for any criticism from the likes of David Lammy and Diane Abbott of course.

    Only white people can be racist.

  31. pugnazious says:

    The EU’s own study into smart borders recommended such a scheme would be the best option for Northern Ireland, a Common’s Select Committee just reported that a smart border is viable and workable, smart borders are operating all around the world. Indeed Guido notes that the French have just revealed their plans for one…across the Channel to the UK… how can we not have one on dry land between NI and Ireland? Despite all this the BBC keeps on telling us it is magical thinking, that nobody thinks it is viable, that the technology just doesn’t exist, it will be impossible to implement one on the Northern Irish border…despite this possibly being the easiest border to ‘police’ customs wise.

    And here’s a thing….the EU already has a smart border….with China…put into operation years ago… who is lying to us about the Backstop and all that? The EU, Remainers and the BBC that’s who. As the CSC said what is missing is the will to do this….there needs to be trust and goodwill….the EU has proved entirely untrustworthy and has displayed a total lack of goodwill in the negotiations.

    From the EU’s own lips…note how a smart border actually increases security not diminishes it….and increases trade and economic growth….

    ‘China/Hong Kong -EU Smart and secure trade lanes (SSTL) project
    What’s in it for participating companies?
    The SSTL project, the first and so far only viability test of the potential of the WCO SAFE Framework of Standards to secure and facilitate global trade, will enter in a next phase. The project is about minimizing administrative burdens in respect of international supply chains by introducing an end to end control mechanism based on one time submission of quality data. As far as business partners in the project are concerned, the project focuses in first instance on granting tangible benefits to participating companies, in particular Authorized Economic Operators. To that end consignments in the smart and secure trade lanes will be subject to innovative new Customs control mixes that allow consignments to flow with no -or with least possible –Customs interventions in the logistical process. This control method will, allowing for some random checking, in principle result in immediate release in the country of destination of all consignments concerned. The SSTL project will contribute to reducing lead times and to enhancing predictability of trade flows and delivery times for international business partners.

    The SSTL project is the first international proof of concept test of the WCO SAFE Framework of Standards1. This Framework is the WCO response to global concerns after 9/11 2001 about potential terrorist activities in respect of international movements of goods, containers and means of transport. It aims at combining enhanced security of global trade with further facilitation for known low risk consignments allowing for a reduction of administrative burdens in international supply chains. This is a challenging prospect as a recent World Economic Forum study indicates that reduction of administrative burdens in international trade may contribute up to six times more to world economic growth than further reduction of Customs duties.’

    The BBC can’t claim that its narrative about the backstop and smart borders is based upon anything of substance, it is quite clear that a smart border is viable and the technology already exists and is in operation across the world. Thus, as the BBC keeps insisting otherwise and continues to boohoo any claims otherwise you have to conclude the BBC is running defence for the opposition and is acting not in British interests but in the interests of the EU.

    In other times they would be called traitors.

    • Kaiser says:

      the only surprise is it took them that long


    • pugnazious says:

      Nothing new in it…there’s already an arbitration process if sides act in bad faith….and as for the ‘unilateral declaration’…..

      ‘Third, alongside the joint instrument on the Withdrawal Agreement, the United Kingdom Government will make a Unilateral Declaration that if the backstop comes into use and discussions on our future relationship break down so that there is no prospect of subsequent agreement, it is the position of the United Kingdom that there would be nothing to prevent the UK instigating measures that would ultimately dis-apply the backstop.’

      Well that’s easy then….what was all the fuss about? Doesn’t matter what you’ve agreed in the Withdrawal Agreement you can just wave your magic wand and say ‘Be Gone!’ and there’s no more Backstop.

      Somehow I don’t see the EU agreeing that as it makes the Backstop no longer a backstop….as we’ve been told all along the Backstop is unworkable as an insurance if it is time limited or otherwise able to be got around.

      May has been about as effective as Cameron in his negotiations to reform the EU…result? We voted for Brexit.

      They never learn…they just think we are stupid and can’t see when we are having the wool pulled over our eyes. You might almost welcome a 2nd referendum….it’s quite possible Leave would smash it so fed up are people with the EU’s intransigence and refusal to work towards a mutually beneficial agreement.

  34. Richard Pinder says:

    The EU has once again used Theresa May as its useful idiot:

    “legally binding assurances”

    “assurances do not normally constitute legally binding undertakings. Governments expressed divergent views. While the British Government argued that the assurances it obtained were non-binding understandings, Switzerland expressed the view that it negotiated legally binding assurances. The language used in many of the known examples of diplomatic assurances indicates that the intention may not have been to create legal obligations”

    Therefore: Assurances do not normally constitute legally binding undertakings. Theresa and the EU will express divergent views. While the European Union will eventually (after fooling members of parliament to vote for the surrender document) argue that the assurances it gave were non-binding understandings, Theresa May expresses the view that she negotiated legally binding assurances. The language used in many of the known examples of diplomatic assurances indicates that the intention may not have been to create legal obligations.

    How migration has affected four generations

    Edita Maldonado is 71 and lives in a small brick house outside of the Honduran town of El Progreso. Despite the town’s name, there is little sign of improvement here. Most of its inhabitants live in “colonias”, poor neighbourhoods, large parts of which are controlled by criminal gangs. Those who have jobs tend to work in nearby “maquiladoras”, foreign-owned factories where wages do not even cover basic needs. Edita’s daughter, Rosa, was working in one such maquiladora in 1995. She was 25 and trying to save enough money to build a small house for herself. But after she was robbed three times of her wages on her way home from work, she decided to leave.

          And as for the culturally enriched commercials, ye gods!
          In poor, deprived areas of London coffee coloured kids are nothing unusual. What’s REALLY unusual is the affluence these contented (commercial) families seem to be living in and the fact that the old man has stuck around. Now that is unusual!
          In real life and not the PC fantasy world that these white liberals like to inhabit, mum’s been “put up the duff” got her council flat and dad has long since pissed off to impregnate some other …young lady.

    Someone wrote the following appertaining to an article on Yahoo about T Blair and his very warm kind advice to Macron-unbelievable that a past PM could indulge in such traiterousness in his endeavours to kill off Brexit.
    Agree with his words-

    Macron, Merkel, Blair, Osborne Juncker, Clarke, they do not work for the people. They are representatives of a powerful banking elite whose globalist aims are being exposed by the shenanigans of Brexit. When/if the British people manage to leave something not created by us but designed by them, we then need to tackle how our own Parliament works and who it is made up of. None of the current residents should be re-elected.

      Exactly, that is our task. Brexit can only be the beginning. We really do need a thorough clear out. I don’t think it’s going to be easy.


    • Dave S says:

      Brexit is just the start. Our Commons is now at odds with the voters but pretending it is not. I hope we are not fooled. Blair’s behaviour tells me that his contempt for us permits him to do and say anything he likes irrespective of it’ s effect on the country. Hubris in spades so to speak .
      I really think that very few of our MPs have the slightest notion of how they look to us. As for the Lords it has always been a place that should have been abolished years ago. It has no place in a democracy.
      If the Commons wilfully delays or forces a second vote then we must campaign on one simple thing. Who rules and by whose leave.
      This is far beyond economics now .

    “UK economic growth accelerates in January” *
    “The increase in wholesale could indicate stockpiling ahead of Brexit. However, the ONS was unable to comment on whether the rise was linked to UK manufacturers stockpiling.”
    Operative word “could”.
    As always, something negative from Al Beeb.
    *(The headline has changed since the story was originally posted to become “UK economic growth remains sluggish”)

    We all know of our far left cultural Marxist State Broadcasters penchant for employing foreigners and LGBT in preference to heterosexual British white people. “Some say” that’s discriminatory. It is, blatantly. But until someone aggrieved tests the ‘Beauties’ employment policy in a Employment Tribunal it will continue. Meanwhile, in what appears similar circumstances, here’s a recent case taken to the ET –

    Proving it is possible to question, successfully, the abusive policy of an employer.

    High up on the home page this morning: Women’s World Cup 2019: England reveal specially designed kit.

    “England women will wear a specially designed kit for this summer’s World Cup – the first time they have had one different to the men’s team. The SheBelieves Cup winners will debut the home kit against Canada at Manchester City’s Academy Stadium on Friday, 5 April.”

    Anyone know when the HeDoesn’tCare tournament starts?

        Enjoy it, because after Brexit all the horses will be dead – some say.

    Popcorn time

    The “ equalities and Hunan rights commission “ has announced it is to investigate the BBC on suspected pay inequalities between Wimmin and chap beeboids .

    So that is on top of their inquiry into the Labour Party institutionalised anti semitism .

    Two outfits priding themselves on a higher moral standard indeed .

  48. Beeb Brother says:

    BBC prominently feature their interview with Tim Berners Lee, who says the web is being used to spread ‘misinformation.’ Censoring the internet has become one of their groundhog subjects.

    No normal, decent people shriek for the internet to be censored; it is a false narrative cooked up by elites because it is empowering us to make up our own minds about issues rather than having our consent engineered by propagandists like the Beeb. Who actually says stuff like: “Poor £5 billion a year income BBC being upset by all these alternative outlets! How I wish they could have a complete monopoly on truth!” Weird how this ‘misinformation’ has been around for decades but is suddenly such a problem. What could have happened in 2016 to cause their sudden concern as they could not have cared less previously.

    As for misinformation it is only via the internet that the falsehoods of totalitarian bullies like the BBC can be exposed. It is so bad that you know whenever you hear a story on the BBC vital facts will have been spun, omitted or amplified disproportionately to fit their relentless agenda; you have to check elsewhere to find what really happened. It is extremely irritating but that is the sorry state of the ministry of truth.

    Do they really think if they do manage to cleanse the entire web of wrongthink we will blindly believe those b**tards like before? It is like a spouse cheating on you countless times, smashing up your stuff then asking to come back again. And it is not even like they have said sorry and vowed to change their mendacious ways as this is just how they operate – a leopard does not change its spots.

    The MSM are like the band playing on as the Titanic sank; the iceberg has been their own lies, hubris and contempt for normal people. The solution is for them to change their ways not to shut down everyone else. Everything has changed and if they do not adapt it is all over for them.

      “I hate having all these alternative sources of information! I demand a few far left media corporations have as complete monopoly!”
