    me First…. I know this isn’t BBC I’m ranting about but it’s about the same old cancerous lefty crap. On C4 was a documentary about the Mary Rose. the Chief Narrator Dr Alex Hildred was getting her knickers in a right twist because Scientists were using the latest technology to work out the race of seven of the Sailors. The pinnacle of her excitement was over one which “might have been Black”. For her the prospect of a Multi Culti Tudor England was sooo exciting. I always thought ships which sailed round the World would pick up people at every Port they visited. FFS

      What is interesting, and not mentioned by the documentary, is that it didn’t seem that important to the chroniclers in Tudor times. I don’t see them quoting vast reams of text by the Tudor BBC on the subject maybe it has all been lost.

        During my limited dealings with people serving in the RN it struck me that they often had surnames not usually found in other walks of life.

        If I didn’t think it would be an excuse to push ‘the agenda’ it might be interesting to trace where these names originated.

        Until the invention of railways it was often easier to sail around and between countries, so there was often an exchange of goods and ideas, (but not necessarily people, BBC), between them. The coastal regions around the North Sea, for instance, share a lot of words and the roof tiles of coastal Fife originated as ballast from ships from the Netherlands, (the tiles stayed, the people not so much).

    “Britain’s Brexit crisis is rooted in the power of our public schools
    John Harris
    Learning from this mess, we must cut the ties that bind the state and key professions to a tiny number of schools”

    The problem, according to Harris, who looks like a recently converted jihadi, is Mogg and Eton.
    All trace of excellence and independence must be culled.
    Charitable status must end.

    Harris does not have a solution to the mess caused by Government run schools in the West becoming centres of anti Western sentiment eagerly managed by globalist left wing fanatics whose historical models had oceans of blood on their hands.

      Would you be good enough to point me towards the link for the numerous articles that Harris and his colleagues wrote saying that, after the numerous murderous attacks from Muslim terrorists, we need to cut all ties with faith-based schools and any preaching by Imams must be banned.

      I’m struggling to find them in the Guardian’s huge database of left-wing, radical, hate speech.

          The Daily Mail quotes our Home Secretary: Sajid Javid praises ‘kindness and compassion of Islam’ as he and Sadiq Khan visit London’s Regent’s Park mosque to mourn New Zealand terror victims

          Pure Taqiyya. This is the man who could end up PM.

          There are very few comments on this article ( just six so far), so many who dont agree are moderated out.

          Every month, 255 Christians are killed; 104 are abducted; 180 Christian women are raped, sexually harassed, or forced into marriage; 66 churches are besieged; and 160 Christians are detained without trial and imprisoned.

          Just last year, 3,066 Christians were murdered, while 1,252 were kidnapped, 1,020 were raped or otherwise sexually abused, and 793 churches attacked. This is on an ongoing basis.

          Just last month, a Cathedral in the Phillipines was attacked, and churches and Christians in Nigeria . The death toll in the hundreds. BBC – crickets chirping.

          Open Doors supplies the public with a “World Watch” list of 50 of the world’s most dangerous countries for Christians.

          Eight out of ten of those countries are Islamic.

          Rape is an especially common form of persecution for Christian women in Islamic lands—a fact that Open Doors substantiates via the testimony of several Christian females who have lived through it first-hand

          https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/273140/persecution-christian-women-jack-kerwick

          This ongoing pogrom is deliberately not covered, just as the Holocaust was not publicized till it could no longer be hidden. Even Christian leaders do not speak up, including Justin Welby or John Sentamu. By not speaking about this ongoing holocaust, Christian leaders add fuel to the fire.

      As many on here have said, the murder of people in these circumstances is dreadful and wrong. What we are complaining about is the way the event is treated by the BBC in particular and the MSM in general compared to murders of Muslims by Muslims, Jews by Muslims and Christians by Muslims.

I fear as someone has said today that this event in NZ will be used as a platform by Islam to promote their claim to sympathy and as an influence against Christian cultures world wide-already Jahadista returning from the Middle East to Sweden creatiing hell on earth for the Swedes.

      tarien,
      They’ve created a powder-keg. You can’t stop a volcano from going off. The ones that vent small eruptions frequently are the least likely to go off. The ones that are clogged up are the most dangerous.

      Yesterday I was shown by a Jewish friend how a group of “Palestinians” were celebrating their murder of Israelis. It’s commonplace for them. And yet “Palestinians” are the darlings of the leftist UN.

      Now we have this “Great Replacement Conspiracy” story being circulated amongst libtards for ridicule. As if it’s only a theory. As if the fangs aren’t showing! We are being systematically eliminated and the left are outraged at those who refuse to keep quiet about it. I don’t believe in guns and violence. I don’t believe in smashing things up as a form of protest either. But I can’t speak for every person on the planet who feels marginalised and hated.
      Now we are hearing calls to crack down on the internet I think I might be seeing Vesuvius on the horizon. The Left never learn from their mistakes. They just shout for more control.

      You know the old saying – “the pen is mightier than the sword”

        Thank you Lucy, very well summerised. I started to exam/study as much as i could about the teachings of Islam, and from that of course have understood, how over centuries the mostly Christian Westen Europeans inc UK, have been in a continual war with the Muslim and its dangerous, supressing, subjuagting ideology. Much of Europe at one stage was controlled by the Muslim values-the Otterman Empire for one, Spain was invaded and controlled for 600 yrs by Islam. The Gates of Vienna for example, that had it not been for the intervention of Poland in 1683, Vienna would have fallen to the Muslim hoards. Now very sadly those same gates have been opened to Islam and through the idiocy of A. Merkel neraly one million have entered Germany and run throughout Europe. The EU has been complicit in its support of the Muslim and responsible for the terrible terrorist acts since. No wonder as I have mentioned eventually there will be a reaction and that reaction may not be always controllable as seen in New Zealand. I have to ask as to why that small populated country allowed so many Muslims to enter its land and be allowed to build Mosques. In the town I lived in France for some years, would not allow a Mosque to be built instead the Mulims were obliged to use their own houses or one specifically.
        Dangerous times are alluming.

      tarien — what is interesting and disturbing to me is how the calls from some corners to regulate the internet and put pressure on digital publishers, ISPs and media outlets are ramping up. (I think has been a dormant plan for a long time.)

      For decades the impetus has been on intelligence services to work behind the scenes rooting out potentially dangerous extremism. Now there’s a focus on ‘far-right’ extremism, somehow the existing arrangement isn’t good enough and policing will become a joint responsibility of the media and ISPs — and of course “all of us” — in the way that it never has applied to Islamic extremism.

    Its only 8.40am and i am already sick of hearing from liberal bedwetters.

    Radio 1 reports the knife incident in Surrey was classed as a “terror incident” all the hallmarks of the Far Right. Then we have Kevin Maguire on Good Morning Britain …this man sets the standard on how to be a wet blanket , Mr Soft off the mint adverts has more backbone than our Kevin. He was blaming Facebook and every social media platform going for allowing the FAR RIGHT to get their message out. He was wittering and bleating on like he’d clearly not had his Quorn smoothie today.

    What he always fails to mention tho is that its EXACTLY the same for the FAR LEFT. Owen Jones is a case in point. How much FAR LEFT hatred does he spread each and every day, hour after hour on Twitter and Facebook !!! Yet he gets regular slots on the BBC and SKY. So yet again, its fine if its the FAR LEFT but completely abhorrent if its anything at all to the RIGHT.

    But the left preach tolerance but quite clearly dont practise what they preach. Horrible, horrible bunch.

        But not a word from them on the ongoing massacres of Christians in Muslim countries. Ongoing for decades. Tens of thousands Christians, brutally tortured and murdered. But all they manage is ” the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church”.

        I find this tantamount to encouragement of Muslims to murder even more Christians. It also makes Christianity and Islam complementary, ie Muslims gains paradise by making Christian martyrs – the latter gain paradise as well.

    Why so many people leave London

    It’s no secret that London has a very successful economy, not just compared with the rest of the UK but with other international cities too. Over the past decade its economy has expanded by a fifth. Ever more shops, restaurants and bars have opened to serve its residents.

    As a result the population of London and the urban area surrounding it has grown significantly, increasing by 1.1 million between 2008 and 2017 to 10 million people.

    Yet despite this success story, not everything is going its way. Many more people pack their bags and leave the capital for elsewhere in England and Wales than make the journey the other way.

    Did anybody else have their common sense and objective capacity abused by a Government Minister earlier on Toady? One Ben ‘54.2%’ Wallace, Minister of State for Security – http://democraticdashboard.com/constituency/wyre-and-preston-north/ – did that for me.
    Our Mr Wallace told Robinson that he cherishes the free, unbiased and objective press we have in the UK when it comes to challenging, extreme ‘Far Right’ views. He included our far left cultural Marxist “another Beauty” in that accolade. He also implored Boris to get behind Treason May’s Withdrawal Agreement. Clearly, Ben ‘54.2%’ Wallace has no ability in the objectivity department.
    These people daily reinforce the public’s view that they live in a parallel universe. We don’t know where that is. We don’t even know how to contact living in this place. This is really a serious matter because we really should not have a Minister for the country’s security who is living elsewhere and so out of touch with reality.
    Daily we are remided of President Trumps expression: “Drain the Swamp”. Now that is an imperative.

      I listened carefully to this interview. Still interesting to contemplate whether Wallace put forward his own convictions or allowed himself to be elbowed to be used as a Toady propagandist, and to which extent either of these applied…
      Beeb will probably argue that allowing a brief appearance by John Redwood shows their balance. ‘Brief’ being the operative word, against a background of tales of how Tory MPs are ‘moving behind May’s deal’ – theme of the morning.
      There was even a ‘subtle’ link made between security and support for May’s ‘deal’ in the Wallace interview. I think words like ‘collapse’ were bandied about.

          Reality isn’t ‘an idea’, but one can always claim originality in describing reality.

          I have described ‘the left’ as being like a castle with everyone else huddling up against its walls because they don’t want to be seen as ‘beyond the pale’ but can’t bring themselves to enter the castle, a step too far.

          Left-Right isn’t a very good political model but it serves ‘the left’s’ purposes, ‘good guys’ versus the rest. Personally I don’t like the term ‘left’ either, ‘collectivist’ probably decribes them better.

          But what words can we use nowadays? What do they mean anymore? I started by saying ‘reality’ but I saw after the ‘Covington Boys’ that there is a higher reality to the collectivist left. The Covington boys inconveniently aren’t racist, white supremicist, catholic bigots, but the higher reality is that they are because all good collectivists know that white, male, catholic labels make them so. Don’t let ‘the facts’ get in the way of ‘the truth’!

        The climate change indoctrination has been reinforced in schools in various ways. My son did several language courses at school – German, French, Spanish. In each course he was required to write a letter in the appropriate language to the local authority with a list of suggestions to combat climate change. It was assumed that there is no room for disagreement.

I disagree with John Simpson; the most important problem our planet faces is most people’s (including politicians’) preference for feelings and sentimental groupthink over reason and critical thinking.

    And I wonder why this has never been reported on the BBC after one of the Rotherham rape victims was named in a BBC radio program and the woman is now being trolled and living in terror after the threats made against her.

    Thank goodness that there are some people in MSM who are prepared to shine a light on what is going on at the Far left state Broadcaster, aka the BBC

    Police fail to protect Rotherham victim from troll

    Police have been accused of “abandoning” a victim of sexual abuse after a social media troll repeatedly posted her name on Facebook and Twitter.

    “Elizabeth” was granted lifetime anonymity after helping to convict members of the Rotherham grooming gangs but a troll has posted “sinister” messages about her, along with her name, photograph and her father’s address.

    South Yorkshire police were told about the illegal posts three months ago. Yet Elizabeth, 31, claims that they failed to act. Only when The Times intervened did officers say belatedly that they were on the verge of making an arrest and asked this newspaper to delay publication.

    Elizabeth is terrified that she will be attacked or confronted in the street while out with her young daughter.

    Details of the trolling emerged shortly after a BBC producer appeared in court in January because Elizabeth was named in a radio broadcast at the end of a grooming trial at Sheffield crown court. The journalist who read out her name was relieved of his reporting duties at the BBC within days of the broadcast in February last year.

    She said that she had already found it harrowing to give evidence, and added: “To then have my name given out as a victim of rape on a BBC radio station was unbelievable and made me feel sick.”

    Ashgar Bostan, 47, Elizabeth’s assailant, had just been jailed for nine years after being convicted of twice raping her when she was 14 or 15.

    She said last night: “I’m guessing the person trolling me is a man, and that he knows it’s me who was named by the BBC.”

    Elizabeth first reported her tormentor to police on December 5, and again on December 31. She made it clear she had been named online and that one tweet contained what she took to be a veiled threat to attack her home.

    She was given a crime number and told that officers would be investigating, but three months later the abusive messages are still online and the troll has not been found.

    Sarah Champion, Labour MP for Rotherham, wrote to Chief Superintendent Steve Chapman, the town’s district commander on February 5, saying Elizabeth felt abandoned.

    By last night the force had yet to make an arrest. A spokesman said: “In December 2018, police in Rotherham received a report of malicious communications relating to social media. An investigation was launched and a number of inquiries have been carried out to identify those involved. The officers leading the enquiry have been in regular contact with the victim and the investigation remains ongoing.”

    Ms Champion’s letter said: “Elizabeth was previously forced to move due to intimidation and South Yorkshire Police have been aware of threats to her security for several years. She is understandably concerned that these posts remain active and that her personal details continue to circulate online.

    “Whilst I am of course aware that policing social media presents particular challenges and can be a lengthy process, these are extremely serious matters and I am concerned that my constituent has described feeling abandoned by SYP. I am also troubled that her personal information remains readily accessible and by the severe security threat this represents, not to mention the likely criminal nature of the postings.”

    Ms Champion ended her letter with a request that Mr Chapman take “all necessary steps” to address Elizabeth’s security concerns “and to protect her anonymity without further delay”.

    Elizabeth said: `I can’t believe that nothing is being done to protect me. I’m meant to have my identity protected by law, yet the police have done nothing about this for three months.

    `I’m paranoid all the time – frightened for both me and my daughter. Surely the police should be prosecuting this guy!`

    Following the intervention of The Times last week, senior officers asked Elizabeth and this newspaper to hold back on the publication of her complaint.

    However they did so by ringing a rape campaigner rather than the victim. “To me that adds insult to injury,” Elizabeth said Elizabeth. “They’d given me a crime number and they had my address and phone number. Why not make contact direct?”

    Mr Chapman claimed that he had made indirect contact so as “not to seek to influence” her decision on going public. In an email he further claimed it was “only in the last couple of weeks” that officers had identified “a credible suspect”. They were now “working with that”.

    Officers have also disclosed to Elizabeth that they closed down the offending Twitter account a week or so ago. This has angered her since she claims it “gave him a clear warning” that they were about to move in.

    To quote one of the comments:
    “Please stop using the term “grooming gangs”. They are paedophile gangs and as usual, the victims are abandoned. Do not forget the politically correct Labour controlled councils and inept police turned a blind eye”
    and
    “If this was the far right threatening someone it would be headline news, D Abbott and the BBC would be demanding to know why this was not being pursued with the utmost vigour. What a sad and twisted place this PC country as become.”

    I don’t know if this has been covered before but I caught the second part of the most recent “Crosstalk” (repeated later this week) on RT about the EU’s Media Literacy “initiative”.

    From the bit I saw, it appears to be an attempt to exclude from the media those people that the EU considers unqualified. I think we can probably guess what that might mean.

    I did a bit of Googling and found the following:

    https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/13864/eu-media-literacy

    https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/news/european-media-literacy-week

    “A high level of media literacy is a key factor to enable citizens to make informed decisions in the digital age. In this light, media literacy is a pre-requisite for a vibrant, modern democracy and an important topic in view of the upcoming European elections in May 2019. “

    “Europeans evidently now need the further indispensable guidance of the European Commission to learn how properly to navigate, read and interpret the news, whether the source is traditional or digital.”

    This is clearly being cynically promoted on the back of recent concerns about the power of organisations like Facebook.

    Very sinister, IMO, but entirely inkeeping with the EU’s way of doing things. I believe there was discussion many years ago about the possibility of making criticism of the EU illegal. It was never acted upon. This might well amount to the same thing under the guise of a cause considered by some to be more worthy.

    In the UK, anybody can call himself a journalist (eg TR). Can’t have that, can we?

    No Toady Watch as I’ve largely cut it out

    Anyway – a couple of weeks ago I casually mentioned to a friend how biased the State Broadcaster is . I got a kind of quizzical response.

    Yesterday I got told “ yes you’re right – I’ve seen it now “ . It was as though the blinds had come off .

    I write this because, perhaps , word of mouth has as powerful effect as the cases we lay out everyday .

    I know there will always be’ Bias Deniers ‘ and the clever lefties who claim the State Broadcaster is exactly the opposite to reality – claiming it is ‘ anti left ‘ – but we gotta try .

    If you notice the likes of lefty mouthpieces like the sad Owen Jones use the Soviet propaganda style of claiming right wing bias quite a lot .

    In response the State smug Broadcaster does the “ well we’re being attacked from both sides so we must be ok “ lie .

      Agreed wholeheartedly. Give our ‘side’ time to regroup and rearrange tactics. Who knows, by then, we may even see the EU disintegrating following elections in May. However, as the Brexit fiasco demonstrates, the EU is quite adept at altering the background to anything damaging. Bit like Treason May. I’m totally convinced she, supported by others, will seek to change the UK election procedures so as to preserve the cosy two-party see-saw.

    Racists and misogynists of the far far right are getting their evil message across. This morning I saw a billboard advertising a bank. It depicted a couple in bed with just their heads showing above the covers. One was a man and the other was a woman. But what is worse is that both were white. It made me shudder. I thought there was a law or a rule against white and white partnerships and that mixed was the only option in advertising.
    I will have to report the matter to Titania McGrath.

    You may have seen the smug, virtue-signalling chap outside a mosque in Manchester spinning the usual “all you need is love” line: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-47595582

    He also appeared on BBC Breakfast yesterday (the interview was actually very interesting as he does imply that most of the Muslims ignored him coming into the mosque and only greeted him after being told to by the Imam): https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-manchester-47603951/christchurch-shootings-man-sent-friendship-message-after-attacks

    The BBC introduces him as running “a Christian charity and led London 2012’s multi-faith chaplaincy team”.

    It transpires that is not all Andrew Graystone is.

    Indeed, he is also a former BBC Producer in the Religion and Ethics department and a Development Executive “responsible for programmes across BBC radio and TV”. He still regularly appears as a commentator on BBC Radio 5 Live and leading BBC Radio 4’s Daily Service.

    Typical biased BBC deception; presenting a BBC stooge as some random chap to push the diversity narrative.

    I’ve stopped watching the bBC so am going by what Hammond said on Marr yesterday morning according to Guido. His mentioning of the upcoming spending review when asked if the DUP have been offered cash for votes is duplicitous and entirely an attempt to further discredit the DUP.

    https://order-order.com/2019/03/17/hammond-refuses-rule-cash-exchange-dup-support/

    The DUP however have stated,
    “Contrary to some reports we are not discussing cash”.

    http://www.mydup.com/news/article/comment-by-the-democratic-unionist-party

    Now in light of such blatant bullshittery from Hammond why the hell would the DUP want to compromise any principles they may have to place their trust in such a conniving weasel or the untrustworthy ex-conservative party?

    Had the lates attack on a tram in Utrecht, Netherlands as the lead story, now, they’ve switched back to New Zealand…..I’m not sure if they’ve also had reporting on a number of attacks in Nigeria….it sure isn’t the lead story.

    I do realise that because nothing violent or like this happens in NZ, that’s part of why there is so much coverage but still.

    Our state broadcaster was pretty quick out of the blocks yesterday when a teenager was stabbed in leafy Surrey. “Far right” “Nationalist” and “Terrorist” were all descriptions used. Well, perhaps… I did note though that there was none of the usual, knee jerk “lone wolf” claptrap, and there was none of that baloney that the knife-man had psychological issues or a drug habit.
    This morning a gunman has opened fire on a tram in the city of Utrecht, Holland, killing one and injuring many others. Is it my imagination or are the Beeb just a tad less enthusiastic in labeling this latest atrocity as an act of terrorism? All I’ve heard them say is that there is “a possible terrorist motive.” Kind of waters it down, doesn’t it?
    It will be a bit like that bloke who drove into cyclists at Westminster. For over a week the BBC kept referring to it as dangerous driving. Even the atrociously PC Sky News called it as an act of terrorism.
    Now, if my suspicions prove correct and this latest nutter is eventually identified as one of our bearded friends what’s the betting the first things the authorities will worry about is an outbreak of “Islamophobia”?
    Over to Mayor Khan…

    I blame the bbc and itv for the wrong results in the Six Nations on Saturday.

    Of course, as usual Eddie Butler made the most mistakes – God knows how he ever played so well back in his younger days!

    I have to accept though, that so many mistakes were made during the England Scotland reporting, that I had to turn off the set and read a good book, half an hour before the end!

    The bias was appalling,and I went to bed feeling so badly let down by such awful commentating!

    On awakening at 3:00am, I just had to listen to the one good BBC programme – Dotun and Jonathan, with a great show as always. When the news mentioned an eventual draw in The Calcutta Cup, Mrs O’Blene nearly woke up to find herself pregnant…

    What I want to know, is why, with all that money they have, didn’t the bbc tell me the score?

    (possibly, Scrobs, because the game was on ITV, they do things better there)…

    Apologies for going back to the opening comment.

    “….. On C4 was a documentary about the Mary Rose. the Chief Narrator Dr Alex Hildred was getting her knickers in a right twist because Scientists were using the latest technology to work out the race of seven of the Sailors. The pinnacle of her excitement was over one which “might have been Black”. For her the prospect of a Multi Culti Tudor England was sooo exciting. I always thought ships which sailed round the World would pick up people at every Port they visited. FFS ”

    I was born and raised near the London docks in the 1950/60s. There were lots of nationalities, especially lascar sailors in the area, but extrapolating the ethnic mix of a group of sailors to the population as a whole (or even locally) is indeed ‘lefty crap’.

      It said they used isotope and DNA technology. But came to the unusually unresolved questionable conclusion the one of them “might have been Black?”. This was 1545, English involvement in Black Slavery didn’t start until 1562. But its known that English privateers had been raiding Spanish possessions in the Caribbean. So I wonder if the vague statement “might have been Black” is based on isotopic evidence that he was brought up in the Caribbean. The doubts about him being Black indicate that he was more likely to have been a native Carib or even a white European of Spanish decent, born and brought up in the Caribbean.

      Also I heard of complaints from Australian historians about left-wing historians in Britain rewriting the history of London. Apparently its well known in Australia that criminals who wrote accounts of their life in London and then arriving in Australia, write about seeing Black people for the first time after landing in Australia. So this implies that after living in London for at least a decade, they never made sight of any Black person.

      This contrasts with present day dramas on the BBC, set around 1788, which would usually include the sight of a Black person within the first five minutes of scenes set in London.

      Hello Spinning wreath. I watched the programme as I was very interested. I was annoyed they kept hyping up the idea of their warped philosophy, looking at every opportunity to inflate their twisted agenda. I could have said a lot more about it.

      Richard. That was another thing. The Scientists were inconclusive about the results. The “Black Mans” skeleton was possibly of Moorish descent but tried to convince he was of African descent as in Negro.

    The ‘incident’ in Holland this morning resulted in at least one dead and several injured. There is as yet no motive or identified perpetrator on the MSM. But if , and at this stage it still is an If, it is a Muslim who did it we can watch how the MSM handle it. I fully expect that the narrative will be that the culprit was provoked by the NZ attack . It seems that the MSM liberals don’t see the issue that this narrative brings. They are simply confirming what most sensible people know and fear, that Muslims regard themselves as united by their religious ideology in a way that the West simply isn’t. They may fight against each other but the war against the infidel unites them . This is exactly why having them in your country always poses an issue, if there are hostilities anywhere in the world between Muslims and populations represented in a third country Muslims may well attack the third country in a show of solidarity with their co religionists involved in the conflict.

      I also see that the narrative about the NZ perpetrator is that he isn’t a nutter. An interesting shift as previously all attacks on Muslims in the West were claimed to be the work of folks with mental issues.No doubt the change in narrative is designed to provide a new narrative that the West is full of hard right Islamophobic groups who are highly dangerous and so there must be a clamp down and these groups rooted out and their supply of recruits cut off. Cue further suppression of free speech and censorship of the internet and implementation of new laws designed to inhibit peaceful discussion and gatherings.

    Britain does most of its fast growing trade outside of the EU under WTO rules and with an annually growing surplus. On the other hand, our trade under the EU single market and customs union, generates a large annual trade deficit. We also save £39 Billion of taxpayers money which would have made British plebs £2,000 poorer, and all those EU Bureaucrats much richer.

      Good article in the Daily Mail Sunday by DAVID STARKEY.
      about how parliment doesnt reflect the leave /remain split of the people

      http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6818107/Historian-DAVID-STARKEY-self-satisfied-politicians-launched-coup-Brexit.html

      ”The People voted 52 to 48 per cent to leave; an estimated 74 per cent of MPs voted to remain.
      No representative assembly can sustain such a gulf. Either People or Parliament must give way.

      And so it has proved as, in its profound lack of wisdom and in its disregard for the central thread of its own history, Parliament has decided it is the People who should change. Or, rather, be changed.

      This is not the first time such a thing has happened. Before the fall of the Berlin Wall, Communist states were ruled by similarly pampered, out-of-touch and privileged elites who, against all the evidence, claimed to represent the People.

      The People, shame on them, were ungrateful and in the habit of rebelling. After one such protest, the German poet and playwright Bertolt Brecht wrote one of the great poems of political dissent, including the satirical lines:

      ‘Wouldn’t it
      Be simpler in that case if the government
      Dissolved the people and
      Elected another?”

    Of course, it wasn’t a comment from them directly, but ‘merely’ footage of someone being interviewed and indulging in wild speculation, with a bit of hate speech of their own. So they can’t be ‘blamed’.
    Still, I would imagine quiet satisfaction and a pat on the back for someone at the beeb.
