    We have a never ending leave date now.
    Unless the eu get May’s awful, for us, deal (treaty) passed they will keep on extending the leave date until our honourable MPs find a way to remain in the eu.
    They will grant extension after extension.
    May 22 will arrive and we will find the eu will give us a years extension, a year later reasons will be found to extend it again and so on.

    We have to keep faith until 2022 when we can get rid of 500 of these disgraceful chancers in the den of cessminster.

    On the petition.
    It appears that the whole world is signing it.
    There are powerful forces at work against democracy.

      There is a big BUT though – the EU wants the idea of leaving the EU off the headlines so that they {Germany) can concentrate on consolidating their power. And they really, really want shut of Farage.

    Knowing the BBC’s predilection for any news story that has diversity, gays, women and black people, I’m distraught that the nation’s beloved broadcaster appears to have deliberately avoided reporting this story from Birmingham. Perhaps it’s been focusing on the battalions of Muslims who have taken a day off work to demonstrate outside their children’s school for three weeks because of the LGBT lessons, or perhaps it’s the nasty man with his anti-Muslim mallet putting in the windows of those wonderful peaceful mosques in the Second City?

    https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/actress-due-play-bisexual-role-16010711

    The Birmingham Mail Headline – “Actress due to play bisexual role in Birmingham Hippodrome’s The Color Purple ‘axed for anti-gay post'”

    For readers of a delicate disposition and who may not be bothered to read the article, here is the lady who wrote the anti-gay posts…

    0_seyi-omooba.jpg

    The lead actress of an upcoming production at Birmingham Hippodrome has been axed over alleged homophobic remarks. “Seyi Omooba was due to play bisexual lead Celie in The Color Purple, a story centered around two women falling in love.”

    Anyway, must dash to The Bullring now, I’ve heard there’s a rush for halal pork pies and trotters starting because of the Brexit food shortages.

    Who says that the Beeb is Anti-Brexit?
    I found this little gem on the webpage…………
    “Toyota will start manufacturing hybrid cars for Suzuki at one of its UK factories, it has been confirmed.”
    “Based on the Corolla, the new car will have engines made in Wales and electrical components from Japan.”
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-derbyshire-47638644
    Well, I must admit, I found it ‘hidden’ among the rubbish. Did anyone else see it ?

      BBC as pains to point out tho

      “It will not lead to extra jobs or investment but will make the factory more efficient, the firm said.

      Now Nissan not making the new model didn’t lead to any job losses but that didn’t stop the BBC having hysterics over the news and making it headlines for days.

      taffman- I’ve owned a Toyota, a very nice car. Can recommend.
      I have always been partial to things Japanese. (Yes, I know what happened during the war.)
      The Japs have not fallen for the ‘diversity’ obsession which is destroying the ‘West’. They have made an attempt to preserve their culture. (Diversity – at least, not so far; the virus could spread, though. But open borders has not been their fancy…)
      And fortunately they are some distance from Brussels, so haven’t been tempted. Even without the distance, can’t see them submitting to the Merkels, Tusks, Junckers and Verhofstads of this world.

    Toady gave Nigel Farage an incredibly hostile, aggressive and sneering interview, clearly trying to pin the ‘Islamophobia’ label on him. No sign or sound of Gerard Batten, of course. Clearly, splitting the two genuine Brexit parties and putting them into the ‘anti-Islam’ box is the foreseeable Toady strategy.
    But Toady had lots of time for EU apparatchiks and Council reps.
    Basically, the Toady push is for May’s soft ‘Brexit’, a cross-party soft ‘Brexit’ (they like N Boles/Y Cooper combination for this), or revocation of A 50 -i.e. no Brexit. If ‘no deal’ exit is mentioned at all, it is generally accompanied by a thumbs down and mention of ‘catastrophic consequences’.
    Biggest mystery of all: How on earth did May ever get to be party leader? How on earth has she stayed put? She needs to quit, and quit quick. She has (deliberately) played into the hands of the EU, She has lied so often, so brazenly, it’s hard to believe. She has weakened the Tories beyond belief; and still they put up with her. She needs to go yesterday.
    But I guess her next step is reaching out to Labour, as a survival strategy?

      Brexit is over. We are stitched up. The BBC is pushing for the deal and inserting into each article a note abut the petition to stay. There will either be an acceptance of the deal – which is Brino – or, as I predict, another referendum, which will be fixed and will return a remain majority.

        Brexit is only over if we, the people, allow it.
        All of us need to take a leaf out of Bercow’s book.
        Yes, he is a treacherous, anti-Brexit (probably Labour) mole.
        But he is resolute. He is loud. He is ambitious. He is quick on his feet. He has an agile mind. He is erudite (crap and deceit as it may often be). He has oodles of determination. He can be smooth, if required. He is brazen. He will flatter (to deceive) if needs be. He adapts instantly and constantly, unlike May who holds on to lost causes.
        But we are potentially BETTER than him. He speaks only for the 500 or so MPs, who want to undermine the referendum result. We speak for the 17.4 million majority. The great ‘petition’ the bbc is so excited about, will need another 15 million + to catch up.
        We have democracy on our side. We have the Will of the People. We have the Truth. WE MUST NOT BE COWERED.
        If the bbc have decided to be the enemy of democracy, the Truth, and the will of the people, let them take the consequences.

          fake,
          as much as I admire your optimism, all is still in play.
          If the terrible WA doesn’t get the vote – which it will not, then the EU, in concert with May, will extend A50 until something more agreeable can be arranged. Mays assertion that she will resign if pressed for a further extension is another of her emperors clothes red lines. It doesn’t exist – in fact she already has this option in her back pocket for when her ‘deal’ dies the death it deserves.
          It will need Leavers to get angry and take to the streets for our democratic vote to be taken account of. And, when this business is done with, we need to concentrate on the dissolution of that most vociferous of media activists, our state broadcaster.

        He came across as a smug snowflake with all the answers . For instance he claimed that UK hasn’t done much about ‘climate warming’ to which portilo instantly responded including ‘shut all the pits’ – which those who believe in the climate change witchcraft must qualify .

        He also thought he had invented the idea of a ‘universal minimum ‘wage’ which had been around stupidly for ages .

        I thought he might be bitching about his treatment as Brillo and the other grownups ripped him ‘a new one ‘ as believe young people use as their ‘street speak’.

    How does the BBC decide who it likes? (Now there’s a typical BBC headline!).

    Now I, like most here I suspect, have a good old-fashioned idea of what makes comedy. I know this because my young relatives scowl when I start to make a joke, way before reaching the punch line. It is like living with party apparatchiks. I bet that the Jews on the way to the gas chambers made jokes, because they were human and that is what humans (used to) do.

    But even I felt a little unease when I started to read this little BBC article. It’s just so ‘extreme right-wing’, people doing violence to other people and not emoting with each other. Yet clearly this is a full-on ‘puff-piece’ promoting the author’s work. Could it be because she is a woman? Would a man have been castigated if he drawn these cartoons instead?

    ‘Die Welt’ reports that the EU is now determining British internal politics, noting that Corbyn had also visited.
    One commentator suggests that that is the whole point of the EU: to destroy nations/sovereignty and take over their politics.
    Another commentator says: ‘Wonderful theatre’: between them, the EU and the UK parliament are grinding/wearing down the British voter, preparing them for a second vote, in which they capitulate.
    Neither of these comments, which are far more lengthy, is meant to be hostile. They are making observations…
    Could the latter be right? The UK parliament hand in glove with the EU, staging a little act? The UK parliament already subconsciously or consciously doing the bidding of the EU? That would give Elite Theory, as a branch of the study of Politics, a new boost (Broadly speaking, elites co-operate in their own interest, against their ‘subjects’ regardless of context)
    And I thought it was only Ms May…

    Vine today asks: “are you embarrassed to be British?”. What other state broadcaster would put such a question out there? Imagine the French doing it: “are you embarrassed to be French?”
    It is relentless. The question might have been: “do you feel stitched up by our politicians” or “do you think the EU has stitched us up”, or “are you proud to be British in the face of a neoliberal, statist, undemocratic attack on this country?” but no, yet again it is our sense of nationhood, our sense of worth, that is under fire.

    I’m sure we on this blog all condemn the Christchurch attack.
    But it’s striking that a week later, it is still ‘front page’ news on al beeb, whereas the Utrecht attack was quickly dropped from the Home page and is now nowhere to be found.

    Noteworthy also are the extremely emotive and detailed tributes to some of the victims (all saints, it would seem).

    Does al beeb usually publish such tributes and follow-up stories about the much larger number of (hideously white) victims of islamic terror, let alone the thousands of anonymous victims in Africa, Asia and the Middle East?

    The BBC & Cyclone Idai
    I suspected something not quite right and so as usual, I delved a bit deeper than the BBC would want me to do..
    Just As I suspected, it would appear that our impartial broadcaster has been fooling the masses with their reporting on Cycone Idai.
    The first thing I researched. Has this size of Cyclone ever hit Africa before?
    Answer. : Of course. And it is not a rare event.
    Secondly. The reason why much more people are affected by this cyclone.
    Perhaps it is to do with the huge population growth in Africa, social media etc..
    Anyway that was my amateur research, then I looked at this and confirmed my doubts..

        And don’t for get most leave voters are mostly elderly quite old – if we believe what the MSM tell us – would have no idea about this ongoing online remain campaign, not to mention not having a PC to record their votes in the first place – which must be in the tens of millions.

        And should a second referendum happen I can’t see all those elderly leave voters – not to mention most middle aged leave voters – would even bother turning out again to vote for something they have voted already yet their vote ended up being useless. Why bother?

        All the incentive is with the remainers vote. They were dead and buried but now – because of MAYS and HAMMONDS deliberate tactics – have a fantastic chance of getting their way after all.

Women are totally repressed under Islamic law, so if they want to stand shoulder to shoulder, let them live under the regime for a month, and see if they still want to wear a headscarf.

      Quite frankly with all the terrorism that has taken place by Muslims in the name of Islam, its Ideology centuries away from the modern world and utterly alien to White Christian Societies such as New Zealand, that with still their apparant ignorance of what such tenuous support for the shades of Islam in following the lead of their misguided Prime Minister will do to their country. Gradually now the claws of Islamic integration will bring Sharia Law to that peaceful nation, thousands upon thousands of Muslims from Africa, the Middle East and Pakistan, and Indonesia will hammer on the NZ doors for entry now they can view how they will be received. Maybe a bit hard but having relations in New Zealand, consider the Prime Ministers reaction to the Mosque killings by enshrouding herself as a Muslim woman is not the best message to give to her white christian population. NZ must back away from this Multicultural attitude, Islam will never follow anything other than the Islamic ideology.

    Saturday the state broadcaster will be doing one of those hysterical outside broadcasts covering the Remainer March – I’m guessing it will be like the London Marathon except that the psyched up beeboids will be desperation to find ‘ tinted ‘ face and photogenic tinted kids to show how multicultural the march is .

    And there will be ‘ celebrities ‘ as well as over excited rants from Baroness Soubry and the likes .

    Well I have always thought that the BBC and Sky were biased towards the remain camp but today they have really confirmed that view with wall to wall publicity for the “Revoke Article 50 Petition”. I am surprised that there is not a small window at the bottom of our tv screens giving live coverage of the number of petitioners. Strange how the “Leave without a Deal Petition” which had been signed by hundreds of thousands of Brexiteers received little or no coverage.
    Every day we see remain after remain MP’s and members of the press put in front of the cameras to say what a catastrophic mess will be caused by Brexit and only a token Brexiteer is allowed to support what the majority of the people voted for.
    Question Time continues to show bias towards representation from the remain camp and so called political experts from obscure think tanks never give brexit any credence.
    All I know is that despite all this indoctrination by the majority of MP’s, most of the media and the rest of the Westminster elite my close family and friends feel even stronger that we should leave this god forsaken organisation as quickly as possible.

        Brissles, I doubt if TV ever had any destiny other than the dumbed down trashy medium it has become. It has got to appeal to as many viewers as possible to survive, so lowest common denominator entertainment was always going to become its staple fare. Talent contests showcasing narcissistic proletarian wannabes and marathon productions with vacuous titles like your crisp programme predominate and can only appeal to dimwits. I rarely feel edified by anything I see on the box these days and the BBC, which should be the one exception to the rule, seems particularly remiss in its stated noble aim to educate, entertain and inform. I grew up with enormous respect for its output, especially for programmes like Tonight with Cliff Michelmore, Alan Whicker, Derek Hart, Fyfe Robertson, Kenneth Allsop and all those guys. That calibre of person or programme just isn’t there anymore.

    The BBC has always tried to control the narrative of Brexit, to control the language used to describe events and thus to shape perceptions of people, groups and ideologies of those involved in Brexit.

    The BBC will always find time to mention the £350 million Leave campaign claim but when do you ever hear them mention the 800,000 workers who were supposed to lose their jobs #duetobrexit by now, or the massive economic recession that was to be the immediate impact of the vote to leave, or the third world war that was supposed to have kicked off by now? Where do you hear that the claims by Carole Codswallop that Cambridge Analytica stole Brexit are complete bunkum, total lies?…Cambridge Analytica had no part in Brexit. The BBC was more than happy to fill the airwaves with Codswallop’s fabrications….not so keen to print the retraction.

    When have you ever heard the BBC call a Remainer ‘hardline’ or ‘hardcore’ or ‘extremist’ or ‘ultra’? Never, regardless of their absolutist, intolerant, uncompromising stances and unwillingness to accept Brexit in any shape or form. And yet the BBC can be guaranteed to label anyone who actually supports Brexit, and not some neutered form of it, hardline or hardcore or ultra or extremist…not forgetting of course the description of Brexit in perjorative, negative terms, as a ‘Hard Brexit’ and Remain leaning policy as a ‘soft Brexit’.

    The BBC has always tried to label Farage a Nazi and UKIP as Far-Right but in the last couple of days the BBC has jumped the shark and gone full-on loony-left.

    Yesterday John Humphrys labelled the ERG as ‘extremist’…telling us ‘I think we can call them that’…really? This is a group that pretty much represents the majority of the voting public and their views on Brexit. Is Humphrys also labelling 17.4 million voters extremist?

    Today the BBC doubled up on that as Jim Naughtie made a disgraceful, dishonest and outrageous slur about the ERG saying that they belong in the National Front or the AFD…the BBC of course labels these groups as neo-Nazi, racist and dangerous.

    The BBC’s narrative on Brexit thas been one long lie, a long record of slurs and bigotry towards Brexiteers, an almost completely false narrative about the economy and Brexit, a completely misleading narrative about what Brexit is all about, the BBC treating it solely as an economic trade issue when sovereignty, controlling our laws and money, controlling our borders and immigration, far outways trade with the EU in peoples’ minds.

    The BBC has run an orchestrated campaign of deception and misdirection, deliberately misleading the public about events, deliberately narrowing the debate to its own favoured ground of alarmist economic scaremongering, deliberately demonising, not just Brexiter politicians, but anyone who voted for Leave as racist, as extremist, as bigoted, as stupid, as uneducated.

    The BBC has given cover to hardline Remainers who absolutely refuse to accept the democratic outcome of the referendum and not only are attempting to prevent Brexit happening but are in the process of trying to actually mount a coup against the government and take control of the executive and assume power for themselves deposing not just May but the elected government.

    Astounding that the BBC fails to report this dangerous and unprecedented move by extremists who are openly working for a foreign state and not in the British interest.

      I wish someone on tv would sit down with a bbc representative and go through your comment line by line answering all of your points and observations.
      I cannot see anything you have written which isn’t true so how could they respond.

      There’s so many questions need asking (and answered) of the remainers yet those on our side, leavers, don’t seem to be much good.
      We are not very well represented. Occasionally JHB, Francois, Redwood or others from a small group of leavers, get a point across but the remainers are far more aggressive.

      I wonder if we leavers are too trusting and still expect Brexit as promised.

    Funny old world, blink and everything changes.

    One moment May is the villain and MPs the courageous heroes following their consciences as they ignore the voters and scheme to undermine Brexit, the next minute May is the hero and the MPs are the bad guys…or rather a small, select group of MPs….those in the ERG.

    May made a speech the other day in which she urges MPs to stop the infighting and political games, to carry out their obligations to the Public by implementing Brexit. This did not go down well with the MPs who, despite being totally to blame for the chaos and disaster that is Brexit, refused to take the blame…the BBC naturally took their side and laid into May who, we hear, had failed to lead and provide clear and strong direction.

    Jump forward two days and suddenly all change….May is the victim of the ‘extremists’ of the ERG…it is not a failure of leadership[lol] it is the Brexiteer MPs blocking Brexit.

    Ah…so now MPs are to blame…you just have to target the right MPs for the blame…not the lovely soft Remainers but the nasty Far-Right Brexiteers.

    Funny how the BBC’s narrative changes to suit.

    Mishal Husain was interviewing Nigel Farage who had apparently, according to her, said some intemperate and inflammatory comment about it being time to ‘fight back’ and make Brexit a success. This is dangerous talk according to Husain who thinks in these dangerous times when MPs are being criticised [so unfairly] it is incendiary to use such language.

    Funny, Lord Heseltine talking to Humphrys a day before proudly reminded us that he had stated immediately on hearing the unfortunate result of the referendum that ‘The fightback begins here’. Odd I didn’t hear Humphrys leap in and suggest Heseltine moderate his language or that he must surely be to blame for the abuse and anger being directed at MPs [maybe it is due to their treachery and betrayal…I could be wrong….but I doubt it].

    Not as if his words aren’t well known having made headlines at the time….

    The Mail…

    My fightback starts here: He defied one PM over the Poll Tax and now MICHAEL HESELTINE says he’s ready to do the same in the Lords over Brexit

    From Sky….

    Bigger Brexit fightback will ‘get really bloody’

    The Telegraph….

    ‘The fightback starts here!’ How Lord Heseltine led a Brexit rebellion

    It’s on Youtube…right at the end…

    Oh…and Gina Miller…darling of the Remainers and the BBC…

    Ignoring the Brexit bullies is no longer enough—it’s time to fight back

    And of course the old battleaxe herself….

    Remainers fight back with a resignation… and Anna Soubry going ‘full Rambo’

    Why is the BBC trying to blame Farage for using a term that is a common part of the language and attempting to make him out to have ‘blood on his hands’? Of course this is not the first time they’ve done this…famously, or infamously, when they maliciously and deceitfully made up a story about a Polish man whom the BBC claimed was killed by racist Brexiteers given licence to do so by Farage and his statements about controlling immigration.

    Not sure why Farage hasn’t sued. Reckon he’d win hands down.

      We are leaving the EU next Friday, 29 March, 2019.

      And there’s nothing the 650 bastards can do about it. I believe God will make sure we Leave.
      And afterwards, the traitors will be hunted down and held to account.

        john.

        I agree.

        Seeing that the 1st vote was in favour of leave voters that is a sure sign that God had determined beforehand that the Brexit vote would win; therefore I can’t see any reason why he should determine that his promise shouldn’t succeed – in other words:

        His promises are “irreversible” (Romans 11:29)

    Well perhaps I’ve been wrong and we will leave and get our Brexit. But there will be plenty more twists and somersaults before the end and I still think we will have a Brino.
    But it’s interesting to speculate how far in the event of a No Deal Brexit the Remainers will go to prove that they were right. They hold most of the levers of power and will they use them to purposely damage the UK ? Will their plan be to inflict damage covertly so that within a few years we are begging to be readmitted. Three years ago I would have dismissed this as a fanatasy but after the Remainer elites disinformation, deceptions , lies , and all manner of dubious manoeuvres , over the past two years I certainly fear that this is exactly what they will try to do. Use our votes to Get rid of as many Remain MPs as possible as quickly as possible is the only thing that we can do.
