Midweek Open Thread 20 March 2019

Happy Equinox  .

The political trial of Tommy Robinson has been put back to May .. So this is how to repress a dissenting individual .

Even the Far Left State Broadcaster is unable to keep Project Fear nonsense up as remainers make Parliament look absurd every day .

In view of all of this I would like to thank you for the restraint in your comments which is a testimony to the quality of our site .

        So, children, what have we learned today?:

        ‘It does seem as if the BBC are being spoon-fed selective information and not presenting the full truth.

        ‘It is damaging the reputation and influence of the BBC when they become a propaganda tool of any particular stance.

        ‘They really need now to have an investigation into how this happened.’

        ‘How does the Today programme define ‘truth’ these days?’

        I’ll at one of my own: “Who would like to bet that said Head’s position is still as strong now as any bbc ‘journalist’ dealing in ‘truthiness’ that suits the narrative?

        Andrew Bridgen added: ‘It’s misleading its viewers.’

        Now I bet if someone were to report that to the BBC it would get chaged pronto, although when I first read the story I did actually think it was a tranny on the till !

    The BBC tells us of the sad story of the little girl Amber Peat who killed herself:

    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-47613458

    And we find out from the BBC that, in her short disrupted and hectic life:

    “She attended three nurseries, three primary schools and two secondary schools, and was also registered with five GP surgeries.”

    This family, (as many of us have) had to live with unstable short term jobs, un-affordable child care, expensive short term privately rented housing, packed out GP offices, and having to have both parents work to make end’s meet.

    Yet of course over the years we have been endlessly lectured by the BBC that we have to accept the “gig economy”, that its racist to object to mass immigration pushing down wages and inflating house prices, and that National health service is an International health service because the government has poached doctors from third world countries while leaving our own children to rot.

    But despite the BBC shedding a tear in their Islingotn Latte for Amber and criticizing the social services for failing to help her, they still want their cheap Labour, so push to cancel Brexit, and their beloved mass immigration so they can feel good about themselves at someone else’s expense.

    These BBC crocodile tears are sickening. In truth they don’t give a s*** about white English girls… as is proven by their continued failure to detail the horrors endured by each of the gang rape victims in Rotherham a result of their warped ideology of multiculturalism.

      So, my question is what’s in it for them personally? Are they so compromised; by having hidden dirt on them that they don’t want exposed, or the promise of material wealth, or the threat of loss of wealth, or threats of violence; that they see no alternative than to betray our country in order to save their own miserable lives?

      These Remainer fanatics aren’t behaving rationally but there must be a reason. For example, I’d say that Mr Beliar does what he does because he’s in thrall to satan, does that explain the actions of the others?

      Dover Sentry : Why do 70% of Conservative MPs and the Prime Minister oppose Brexit?

      1. With UK in the EU, our MPs do not have to do anything as far as their primary task is concerned. All legislation is in the hands of the EU.

      2. As they are not responsible for legislation, either to enact or meaningfully oppose, they cannot be held responsible for it, come election time. Thus there are no grounds for de-selecting them. They can continue till they get fed up or retire.

      3. Being a MP attracts a nice big salary, plus expenses no questions asked, respect, ability to influence, and patronage.

      4. Attending gala functions and invites to the best places in the UK.

      5. Travel Business and First class at tax payers expense

      6. Duty free stuff from parliaments very special NAAFI.

      7. Directorships

      All this and probably more, all for not being required to do anything. Probably the best job in the world.

      The great thing is, Lucy, that after 29th March, they can all get stuffed, as the reply from Brexiteers will be ‘ We don’t give a damn for what you do from now on, losers’!

      Just two fingers at the lot of them, but holding that little pencil at election time will be a fabulous moment to savour, as the failures in the HoC get totally stuffed, and a real democracy returns. We know all the names of the culprits, and even if the Parliamentry term goes all the way, it means more time to get some real politicians (if there are any), to do the work of making the UK great again!

    The BBC loves to show us how repellent the lower classes are, and gloats as they are arrested for uttering words:

    “James Goddard, 29, from Altrincham, Greater Manchester, is alleged to have called the MP a “Nazi” and a “traitor”.”

    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-47622282

    Anna Soubry, who had previously called President Trump a “dick head” was offended at James comment. So she swiftly called on the police to have him arrested for speaking out of line.

    The police complied, dragging the dissenter in to custody. Meanwhile Soubry went on TV telling the country that “these people need sorting out” like some kind of power mad lunatic:

    About two months later, to prove she wasn’t a traitor, she left the Conservative party and abandoned the Brexit manifesto on which shed been elected to try an undermine Brexit… and she also refused to stand for re-election, sort of like Hitler.

    But the BBC would like you to know that James Goddard deserves to be in prison every bit as much as Tommy Robinson. Anna Soubry is a hero… who is saving 17.4 million retarded racists from their own bigotry.

    If you Tweet otherwise, expect a visit from the thought police, and if you don’t confess you may disappear into the memory hole under a “reporting restriction” to make sure no-one knows where you went… and the BBC certainly won’t ask any questions, they will pretend its normal.

    The beekeeper said to the “ejukachon “ Secretary “ people don’t want “no deal “ he didn’t challenge her on this . MPs don’t want ‘ no deal ‘ whereas brexiters will leave without such a sell out .

    There was no mention of a ‘ deal’ in the referendum .

    Apparently the PM is not going to ask for a long A50 extension any more which I suppose means asking to get a50 extended to the end of May so that we leave the day before the EU elections .

    Reading between the lines I reckon brexiters have done a good job convincing the good EU leaders like Hungary and Italy to block a long a50 extension .
    So – with a fair wind – there will be no change to the sell out- meaning that the speaker won’t allow another vote on the sell out leading to a full brexit at the end of May .

    I’d be glad to hear that my read of the situation is wrong or other variations on the outcome …

    This report came from the Newcastle Evening Chronicle. Another doctor / engineer up to no good.
    It was not reported by BBC Newcastle and why am I not surprised.

    An asylum seeker who subjected a “vulnerable” man to a violent sex attack blames the “immorality” on display in Newcastle city centre for his predatory attack, a court heard.

    Full report — https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/zain-osman-newcastle-sex-attack-15963903

    This I find unbelievable…
    Quote from his defence, paid, no doubt with legal aid :

    “He is an uneducated man, he was a shepherd in his own country, the Sudan.
    He had never experienced the kind of immorality he experienced in coming here and was evident in this particular area of Newcastle.
    “He came from Sudan, where homosexuality is still a capital offence, although it’s not always enforced. Alcohol is also a pretty serious offence for a Muslim in Sudan.
    “This young man had not had any experience of either of those things until he came here. Sadly he started using alcohol.
    “He lacked the kind of life experiences we know about in our more civilised community.”
    The judge added: “I accept you are now very sorry for what you did and you are a naive uneducated gentleman. Nevertheless, you knew what you were doing was wrong and you must be punished.”

    As well as the prison sentence, Osman must sign the sex offenders register for 10 years and was made subject to a sexual harm prevention order for the same period.
    Now Osman, 25, of Gerald Street, Newcastle, who admitted sexual assault, has been locked up for 15 months at Newcastle Crown Court.

    No deportation order I see……

        Fed,
        These, “coppers” who have been given a prominent voice (probably, ‘The’ prominent voice) in any intended criminal legislation proposed by Government that they will enforce such as that concerning ‘hate speech’. Why did they not tell the Government, “No” we will not enforce that nonsense as it will breach the trust of the public. You know, that ‘trust’ which is so-say enshrined in the Definition of Policing by Consent viz.
        https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/policing-by-consent/definition-of-policing-by-consent

        “1 To prevent crime and disorder, as an alternative to their repression by military force and severity of legal punishment.

        2 To recognise always that the power of the police to fulfil their functions and duties is dependent on public approval of their existence, actions and behaviour and on their ability to secure and maintain public respect.

        3 To recognise always that to secure and maintain the respect and approval of the public means also the securing of the willing co-operation of the public in the task of securing observance of laws.

        4 To recognise always that the extent to which the co-operation of the public can be secured diminishes proportionately the necessity of the use of physical force and compulsion for achieving police objectives.

        5 To seek and preserve public favour, not by pandering to public opinion; but by constantly demonstrating absolutely impartial service to law, in complete independence of policy, and without regard to the justice or injustice of the substance of individual laws, by ready offering of individual service and friendship to all members of the public without regard to their wealth or social standing, by ready exercise of courtesy and friendly good humour; and by ready offering of individual sacrifice in protecting and preserving life.

        6 To use physical force only when the exercise of persuasion, advice and warning is found to be insufficient to obtain public co-operation to an extent necessary to secure observance of law or to restore order, and to use only the minimum degree of physical force which is necessary on any particular occasion for achieving a police objective.

        7 To maintain at all times a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and that the public are the police, the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.

        8 To recognise always the need for strict adherence to police-executive functions, and to refrain from even seeming to usurp the powers of the judiciary of avenging individuals or the State, and of authoritatively judging guilt and punishing the guilty.

        9 To recognise always that the test of police efficiency is the absence of crime and disorder, and not the visible evidence of police action in dealing with them.”

        Any sane realist can see and understand that the police are in numerous ways in breach of their own code as set out above. I can only assume they willingly agreed with Government to put aside the code. I say this as a personal observer of the way the police apply zeal to ‘hate speech’ “crimes”.
        ‘Not fit for purpose’ is the expression that springs to mind.

    Inside Erdogan’s inflammatory rallies: Turkish President shows footage of the Christchurch mosque massacre to incite hatred after sparking diplomatic row by saying anti-Muslim Australians would be ‘sent back in coffins’

    President Tayyip Erdogan showed the footage during a rally in Eregli, Turkey
    Turkish leader also called for the death penalty to be restored for the gunman
    He said they will hold the attacker accountable if New Zealand fails to do so
    Erdogan previously said anti-Muslim Australians would be sent back ‘in coffins’

      It was quite a revealing (unintentionally of course) interview, I thought. The ideas about immigration and the incompatibility of Islam and western democracy which her coalition partners espouse are literally unthinkable to her. I used to be in love with the New Zealand accent but Jacinda Ardern’s voice was beginning to grate on my ears as I listened to her plans to bring in leegislation to get rid of all these deedly weepins. The lesson we should be learning from every terrorist outrage of the last twenty years is that people of different races, religions and cultures clearly cannot live in harmony in the same territory. Politicians like Ardern won’t face up to that, won’t admit that they may have got it wrong for all these years, and are pig-headedly determined to carry on implementing their multicultural fantasy no matter how many massacres are committed in their peaceful, inclusive nations.

    I don’t equate what he has done with what the muslims have done but I suspect this individual is now a victim of politics; our craven public servants will need him in their statistics to show the muslims that it’s not just they who can’t re-enter our country.

    This is “going big” on the BBC.
    Virtue signalling supremo (that’s my description, not the Beeb’s btw) Jacinda Ardern, the NZ PM has called for a global effort to root out and destroy racist, right wing ideology.
    I realise that after the horrific Christchurch massacre by a lone nutter there would be a reaction. There was bound to be. What really worries me is who will come under this rather broad umbrella of “racist right wing ideology”.
    We’ve already seen slurs against President Trump. Well, there’s a surprise! Melanie Phillips has been harshly (and unfairly) critisised by that festering malcontent, Baroness Warsi. Tommy Robinson has been confronted by a feral bunch of oikish journalists. Even our own David Vance has come in for some stick on the Twittersphere. Where does it end?
    I think what they want to do is close down any conversation that might be critical of Islam. We know from bitter experience what happened in Rochdale, Rotherham etc when people were afraid to speak out; decades of mass rape and establishment cover ups.
    We cannot allow this ghastly incident or this daft, virtue signalling PC bint to curtail our freedom of speech. It’s far too important.
    As far as I’m concerned we must be free to say things others dislike, just so long as we’re not encouraging or advocating violence. It’s not just important, it’s imperative.
    I have to put up with the BBC, Owen Jones, Sky News and The Guardian. They have a massive platform.
    They’ll have to put up with us.
    That’s democracy.

      Anything that Jacinda Ardern disagrees with.

      This was entirely predictable. The killings in Christchurch will be used in the most cynical way to suppress opinions that Arden and her associates don’t want to be aired.

      Astonishing, isn’t it? A killer, acting alone apparently, is evidence of a widespread problem whereas numerous attacks worldwide (someone posted a list here a few days ago) is evidence of …… well nothing to worry about. This mentality isn’t confined to murder, either.

      It can’t be coincidence that all over the West this type of soppy, emoting politician has risen to the top. A politician more interested in appeasing alien cultures than looking after their own citizens.

      The one advantage we have is that these types are too busy emoting to understand why the inevitable reaction is the rise of politicians such as Trump. Who may be uncouth at times but have the interests of their country at heart. Touchy-feely politicians can’t understand this so consistently underestimate their appeal, hence their incredulous whining when they lose. Backed up by a media equally infiltrated by the same infection that has gripped Western politics.

      Make no mistake, we’re reaching the end game of a fight to the death for Western democracy and free speech. As the stakes get higher I only foresee more violence.

      I’ve now seen the leftist equivalent of the far right mentioned on Al Beeb though… apparently it’s not ‘far left’, or ‘hard left’, but ‘ultra left’. Guess ‘ultra’ makes it sound a bit cooler than ‘far’, or ‘hard’, but like the term ‘far right’ it doesn’t actually seem to have a definition of any kind, and can be lobbed around as indiscriminately as you like for effect.

      So now we can (smugly) throw the verbal hand grenade ‘ULTRA LEFT’ into everything we write, or say, about the likes of ULTRA LEFT agitator Owen Jones, encouraging ULTRA LEFT terrorism, by appearing on the ULTRA LEFT BBC… for example.

    One sometimes thinks that bans on sharing information, books, pictures or live streamed videos, is connected to a government anxious to conceal further inquiry. In this case experts on guns might ask how the gun clicked indicating it was out of ammunition, but then allowed five more shot to be fired. If it was being live streamed, then the video could not have been edited. Questions, questions.

    Yet another sobering appraisal of, ‘where we are now’ with regard to the so-called, Withdrawal Agreement. If accurate, (and it involves International Treaty law), yet again, Treason May and her team of wasters are trying to pull the wool over the publics eyes. But in view of the fact that no one botherered to establish whether there were any legal impediments to seeking numerous attempts to obtain the approval of Parliament on the same issue (thanks Bercow), it may well be that Treason May and her team are negligently oblivious to the affect of International Law on her ‘Agreement’. Now that would be a surprise, wouldn’t it?

    But as ususal she, and the beeb of course, are missing the point. Racist right-wing ideology is a symptom, not the actual disease; a secondary consequence, not a primary cause. And suppressing even further the free and open discussion of the problems of mass immigration and islam is MORE likely to provoke further extremism, not less.

      – People who want to challenge Islamic dogma get to thinking , they might as well use violence, cos speech is suppressed.

I was wrong. It is now clear that they will ride rough shod over democracy and are quite happy for the electorate to see it.

      But in the sure expectation that they will receive a mauling nay, a culling come next election, what will stop them meanwhile conspiring to undermine the next election?
      Oh! some will say: ‘the Fixed Term Parliaments Act 2011 will prevent any conspiracy between all Parliamentarians to delay or halt the next election’. Section 1(5) & (6) states:
      “(5)The Prime Minister may by order made by statutory instrument provide that the polling day for a parliamentary general election in a specified calendar year is to be later than the day determined under subsection (2) or (3), but not more than two months later. (6)A statutory instrument containing an order under subsection (5) may not be made unless a draft has been laid before and approved by a resolution of each House of Parliament.”
      Moreover, Section 7 is even more helpful to a dishonest Parliament –
      “(4)The Prime Minister must make arrangements—(a)for a committee to carry out a review of the operation of this Act and, ifappropriate in consequence of its findings, to make recommendationsfor the repeal or amendment of this Act, and(b)for the publication of the committee’s findings and recommendations(if any).(5)A majority of the members of the committee are to be members of the House of Commons”

Indeed I watch with interest to see how the UKIP, SDP etc are undermined and how the Westminster Parliament accelerates transferring its power to the EU or some other unaccountable body.
