    Common sense from the Swiss.

    Justice Minister Karin Keller-Sutter argued against the motion, pointing a section of the Swiss constitution which states that “no-one shall be returned to the territory of a state in which he or she risks torture or other cruel and inhuman punishment or treatment.”

    Despite the protests, the Council of States decided that the security of Switzerland was a more important than Keller-Sutter’s interpretation of the constitution.

      This will put Switzerland in the firing line of Islam, for the Swiss are attempting to thwart the progress of Islam. This is a capital offence in Islam, and will not go unpunished.

      Meanwhile the rest of the West continues on its suicidal path, willfully ignoring the murder of hundreds of Christians every week, =year in and year out, at the hands of Muslims.

          G
          Thanks for the addition.

          Unfortunately we are in a war that Islam has waged on Europe for a 1000 years . Human Rights charters and consititutonal rights are generally suspended during the duration of the war.

          Unfortunately the politicians are unaware that we are at war, therefore they continue as if nothing untoward is happening.

          The Swiss people though know. And their parliament, unlike ours, reflects the will of the people.
          If the Jihadis, and their embedded allies in Switzerland react with violence, they will be met with force. Unlike any other people in the world, even Americans, the Swiss are armed with the best weaponry available, and they keep it at home. Just in case.

    BBC Online News: European Section. Not for UK

    “”German police arrest 10 people on suspicion of planning Islamist attack””
    23 March 2019

    “”The arrests were made after some 200 police officers carried out raids in the states of Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate.””

    “”The men had plotted to “kill as many ‘non-believers’ as possible” using a vehicle and guns, prosecutors said.””

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-47677657

    This news is buried away on the European section and not on the BBC’s Home Page. Why?

    But, ten days after the terrorist attack in NZ, their PM is still weeping on the BBC home page. Obviously more important to the BBC than planned mass murder by Islamics in Europe.

      So all those countless reports by Sopel and the rest spouting out democrat propaganda and sounding grave about all the bad things which about to happen to President Trump et al turns out to be just false news from the State Broadcaster . What a beauty .
      I bet we won’t hear much of that for very long – nor airheads like Cortez and hacker Beto spouting off .
      I hope Mr Trump holds off on revenge until the second term . And stops direct contact with the biased MSM

      And Sopel can’t even be respectful in his tweet . Time to become the correspondent in Syria …

      I had an argument with him on Saturday night on Twitter, saying he is a disgrace for constantly attacking our greatest ally via an appalling conspiracy theory which was a total lie – the exact ‘damaging misinformation’ the BBC ostensibly fights against in its disgusting quest to cleanse the internet of wrongthink. He kept trying to move the goalposts like the slime ball he is. He was frothing at the mouth, spewing hatred for Trump!

      What has he been doing in Washington all this time? It has just been a free holiday where he chats with activist mates at cocktail parties about what nonsense to spew about the president. He clearly did zero actual journalism or he could not have run and run with a fictitious story. It was agenda first hopefully some facts later, or more likely not at all. A journalist should have an open mind, research the facts then write a story based on them. Of course with the BBC the opposite is true.

      I told him that anyone else would be fired for gross incompetence if they were as spectacularly bad at his job as he is, yet he gets away with it thanks to the extortion racket of the licence fee. O it was glorious having a pop at him! What a sneering, lazy parasite having free holidays on us all the time. We already know exactly what he is going to say so why bother travelling at all?

    Trump-Russia inquiry: President ‘did not conspire with Russia’

    ‘President Trump’s campaign “did not conspire” with Russia during the 2016 election campaign, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report says. ‘

    Roll on 2020?

    Over two years of, not just accusations, but outright claims that Trump collaborated with the Russians and it was all a lie from the BBC.

    The BBC that has trashed Trump and launched extreme, prejudiced and highly partisan attacks on him and his character and in doing so has done nothing less than do Putin’s work for him, destabilising American politics, causing huge uncertainty, doubt, conflict and division as it helped feed the frenzied anti-Trump mob’s obsessions with fake news, lies and spurious claims based on nothing more than hope and bile. Putin must be absolutely p***ing himself with glee and amusement to see those who claim Trump collaborated with the Russians turn out to be the ones who themselves, those useful idiots, actually did cooperate with the Russian plan to sow dissension, confusion and disruption in the US.

    The BBC that routinely calls Trump a racist, a sexist, an anti-Semite, homophobic, anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant and a fan of white supremacy, the BBC that lied about his ‘Muslim ban’, that lied about the wall not revealing that Clinton fully supported such measures and backed controlling illegal immigration, the BBC that refused to mention that the dodgy dossier came from Russian intelligence agents and was paid for by the Clinton campaign…so how would such a damaging document have helped Trump? The BBC that didn’t reveal that it was Clinton’s campaign that organised the meeting in Trump Tower with the Russian lawyer in a sting operation. The BBC that constantly mentions the people who were indicted by Mueller but fails to mention they had no connection with the Russia investigation….the BBC leaving you with the impression they were connected and the net was drawing in around Trump.

    I could go on….but you get the idea. The BBC’s coverage of Trump has been a targeted ‘assassination’ attempt of a sitting US President.

    Just who is doing real damage to the USA…Putin or Lord Hall?

      The last BBC news at 2130, was trying to put an anti-Trump colour to the Mueller report. The BBC view was that Mueller had not completely exonerated the president. I dont see how it could have been any clearer.

      This view was pushed by four independent BBC reporters and four independent American anti-Trump commentators. They wanted to see the whole report.

      Just before he boarded Air Force 1, in a short statement, Pres Trump pointed out someone had to look at the “other side”. That “other side” had mounted an illegal campaign to overthrow him even before he became president. We know he was referring to the FISA warrant, and how it arose from the Clinton team, backed by the Obama regime. The FISA warrant gave rise to the Mueller investigation. The real conspiracy with Russia is there.

      The BBC ignored that statement .

      Isn’t it glorious? The bad guys lost spectacularly as they so often do against Trump. What a shameful episode for the BBC. All whilst simultaneously raising the alarm over the problem of misinformation and fake news! You could not have written it better.

      The BBC run with the old Goebbels trick of lie told a thousand times becomes the truth. In the internet age I am not sure that works anymore; there are too many savvy internet sleuths checking everything. These days lies serve as nails in the MSM’s coffin. How can they ever recover from this? We thought the 2016 US election and Brexit were bad but Russiagate is a fake news Hiroshima. Nobody can remotely trust or even listen to them ever again.

      I actually feel outright disgust and fury at what they have done. They actually think they can overturn a democratic decision just because they do not like the president? What about half of America who voted for him – are they unpersoned? Who thought they could go this low?

    I toured New Zealand with friends 8 years ago and we were in Christchurch in between the two earthquakes. Beautiful, peaceful country with friendly people but seriously left wing.

    The current virtue signaller is not the first female PM. Can’t recall her name but she was also on the left. Dunno what their media is like but I imagine it would be similar to the BBC.

    They’ve taken Jordan Peterson’s ‘Twelve rules for life’ off the shelves can you believe it, because he says Islamophobia is not a real condition.

    George Orwell wrote ‘1984’ in 1948. Perhaps it will take till 2048 for his vision to be fully realised, or perhaps much sooner the way things are going.

        Or that tedious waste of air about second referenda or whether there will be a general election before 2022 or whenever the next one is due .

        I bet the BBC had an hour long special planned with a Sophy or a Katy or an Emilie all getting hot and bothered at the prospect of impeaching President Trump . All they have tonight is an empty studio and a load of graphics to chuck in the bin . My heart bleeds for them .

I don’t want to lose him but I’m thinking of his kids. It’s time others took the risks he’s been taking for years. We could use a lot more TR’s to shake up the established disorder. He has served his country well. I wouldn’t blame him if he re-located.

      1984 is terrifyingly accurate. I think much of it describes how the left operate rather than makes predictions. He worked at the BBC so must have had quite an education in that regard. He based the Ministry of Truth on the BBC.

        Orwell himself was a left-winger and I imagine it was his disillusionment with many of his lefty colleagues that enabled him to write so scathingly about them, for example in Animal Farm.

        1984 was a predictive book since it was projected 40 years into the future.

    Dear God….it took about half a minute and the BBC are already spinning…and still trying to suggest Trump is guilty….US intelligence believes Trump is guilty…and was it a witch-hunt?…No!…..note the allusions to Russian links with other indictments and failure to reveal the truth about Trump Tower and the Clinton connection…..

    Trump Russia: The saga in 350 words

    ‘It’s the story that has dominated Donald Trump’s presidency. But it’s complicated. Let’s take a step back.
    In summary

    US intelligence agencies believe Russia tried to sway the election in favour of Mr Trump. A special counsel has been looking into whether anyone from his campaign colluded in the effort.
    What did he find?

    All we have is a summary of the conclusions, from the US attorney general. In a four-page letter to Congress, he said the special counsel found no evidence the campaign conspired with Russia.
    Is that all?

    No, Attorney General Bill Barr also said there was insufficient evidence that the president obstructed justice.
    So a good day for the president?

    Yes. He had called it a witch hunt from the start.
    Was it?

    No. It was conducted by the hugely respected Robert Mueller, a Republican who used to run the FBI.

    There were several meetings between senior members of Mr Trump’s team with Russian officials. Several meetings were not initially disclosed.
    What meetings?

    Ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn lied to the FBI about meeting the Russian ambassador to the US before Mr Trump took office.

    The president’s son, Donald Jr, met a Russian lawyer who said she had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton during the campaign.
    What else did Mr Mueller look at?

    He brought charges against several of Mr Trump’s inner circle.

    Ex-adviser Roger Stone has been charged with lying to Congress about his contacts with Wikileaks, which released emails belonging to Democratic officials, allegedly hacked by Russians.

    Mr Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen said Mr Trump knew in advance about the email dump. Mr Cohen admitted lying to Congress, campaign finance violations and tax evasion and received a 36-month prison sentence.

    Former campaign chairman Paul Manafort lied to the FBI about his work in Ukraine, according to special counsel Robert Mueller, with whom he had been co-operating. Manafort has been jailed for bank fraud.
    And the president?

    Since he fired the man leading one of the investigations, ex-FBI Director James Comey, there were questions about whether he obstructed justice.’

    Yep, if you hate conservatism then join the FAKE Conservative Party. The Conservative party stands in the way of a real Conservative formation. Miraculously the party keeps holding onto millions of conservative voters on pure false advertisement and the party doesn’t do what it says on the tin. The party has a handful of actual conservative minded backbenches’, but any attempt of a Conservative policy via a private bill will almost certainly get shot down. The entwined structure and the hierarchy of the party is designed to halt any changes within so consequently my advice would be not to prop up the fake, horrible, twisted Conservative party. The collapse of the party will cause a vacuum for a new REAL conservative party.

      LCS
      Indeed there should be many questions asked (enough to argue about all week until 11pm on Friday).

      Further to the above, Martin Howe QC was on the NF show yesterday at 11am and said (my paraphrasing):

      29 March is our leaving date in law and in order to change the date in the 2018 Act an SI must be passed by both Houses this week.

      However, last Friday the UK’s Permanent Representative to the EU in Brussels Sir Tim Barrow [Foreign Office] wrote a letter which appears to agree unconditionally to the extension until 12 April.

      This arguably has the effect that in International Law the UK is already committed to the extension but before the HoC has actually voted on that extension to change the law.

      This is contrary to all long-standing Constitutional precedent and convention where Parliament always agrees in advance before entering into international treaties or obligations that require changes to domestic law.

      If the House refuses to agree to the SI there will be a “chaotic divergence” between the UK’s International obligations and the domestic law.

      Martin Howe thinks they have done this to intimidate Parliament and jump the gun. The other question is whether it is actually legal for them to have done this.

      Martin Howe has repeated this today in the Telegraph.
      https://brexitcentral.com/today/brexit-news-monday-25-march/

      MARTIN HOWE: THERESA MAY HAS ABANDONED CONSTITUTIONAL PRECEDENT BY COMMITTING TO EXTEND A50
      Every day of the Brexit process brings new and startling turns, but Theresa May’s latest gambit moves events into new realms of astonishment. On Friday, she instructed Sir Tim Barrow, our man in Brussels, to write a letter to the EU which formally agrees to Article 50 being extended to April 12 (at least), without first waiting for Parliament to approve the extension. The EU (Withdrawal) Act 2018 governs our exit from the EU. It says that “exit day” will be on March 29. After that day, the European Communities Act 1972 – which gives effect to EU treaty obligations in UK domestic law – will be repealed. But the 2018 Act also allows “exit day” to be changed – by a special piece of legislation called a “statutory instrument” (SI) – so long as a draft of the SI is approved by a vote in each House of Parliament. Those votes on the SI are expected this week. But the government is claiming that because of Sir Tim’s letter, the extension has already happened. Nothing Parliament can say or do can stop it. All that will happen if the SI is voted down, says the government, is that the UK’s internal law will be not be changed to match the new exit date which has been internationally agreed. So voting down the SI will cause legal chaos because the UK’s internal law will not conform with our international obligations, but won’t actually prevent us from still being an EU member state and bound by the EU treaties for this extra period of time. – Martin Howe QC for the Telegraph (£)

      There is more in another article by a civil servant which accuses the Prime Minister of pursuing a dangerous strategy that is “legally questionable” by only using secondary legislation to change Brexit day.

    Shortage of car number plates due to Brexit .

    The Sociiety of Motor Manufacturers (?) and Tardists have said that due to Brexit the number of number plates that show the EU Flag will be significantly reduced because the British government will impose tariffs on number plates imported from somewhere .
    Although 99% of number plates are made in the UK , people who like personalised number plates may have to pay exorbitant fees for a personal number plate .
    A spokeswoman for NEPLATNE , which here means a society for something like Number Plate private , but in Czeck means your visa in your passport is cancelled , said that anyone who forks out £8000 for a distinguished plate that no one else wants will have to give the government more money .
    As part of her Withdrawel Deal , Theresa May has given HRH 1 to Junckers amongst other trinkets and top hats to sweeten them if 39 billion is not enough .

      Significantly reduced to zero I hope.
      The EU flag is an enemy symbol, the EU is not a state.
      This symbol should be outlawed, with the penalty being permanently excluded from the UK and
      having all assets seized.
      In the case of Council offices displaying the EU flag everyone employed therein must be excluded.
      If they like the EU so much they can go and live there.

        People buying a new car can specify whether they want the EU badge or not. (If the dealer tries to object, just say as a friend of mine did, “You’re losing a sale”.) I often count them on the motorway (sad, I know) and have seen the proportion of EU number plates steadily go down over the years, from being a majority to about a third now. This must be either customers exercising their choice or dealers presuming that customers would prefer not to have the EU badge.

    ;;Knife crime: Tony Blair says police losing knife crime battle;;
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-47670156
    Police are currently “losing the battle” against knife crime, former prime minister Tony Blair has told the Victoria Derbyshire programme.

    He urged current prime minister Theresa May to hold a Cobra emergency committee meeting and act with a determination “to do whatever it takes”.

      Political Correctness Enforcement Squads are only losing this battle where Labour has control of them.
      Using hundreds of squad members to police the thoughts of people who aren’t comitting any crime at all appears to be more important to them than serious knife crime.

      This is why the so called ‘moderate’ left are so much more dangerous that those they label ‘far right’ (80 – 90% of the British people). The meaningless word ‘racism’ and the fear of it has been the driver being the elites turning a blind eye to the rape of tens of thousands of girls in every major city, and is the main reason behind the rise in knife crime, with comissioners opposed to any kind of Policing which might incovenience the criminals carrying out these killings, on the basis it might be ‘racist’.

      49 people were killed in Christchurch 3 times that many were killed just in one city in the UK in one year, and yet the elites and the MSM cannot put two and two together and realise that they are the problem, not the 80 – 90% of use whom they wish to blame.

    The latest yellow vest protests seem to passed with only an elderly lady being injured by the police. At least that all that has been reported but we know that facts may be being suppressed or created by the MSM. The army doesn’t seem to have been involved in any confrontation with the public.
    I took the deployment of the army as a signal that the Globalist regime in France was getting highly nervous and ready to suppress the people by force. I can imagine that the same scenario may play out in several other European countries if the ruling Globalist regimes maintain their present course. Slowly the whole Globalist edifice is crumbling in the face of opposition from the people.
    One noteworthy fact is that in Europe the opposition to the Globalists has many young people in it. But in the UK and USA there are many fewer under 30’s involved in the opposition. I wonder why?

            What actually occurs is more “misinformation” in the form of allegations, suggestions, extrapolations from allegations, which then metamorphose into claims of “I told you so all the time” BBC type “truths”.

            The biggest lie of which, is the Remain claim that “information” has become available since the referendum, which some how invalidates the result.

            Just more fake news, It was evident decades ago that the EU was totalitarian in form, corrupt in practise and evil in nature.

            Events since the referendum have only confirmed the truth about this disgusting, worsening and failing, organisation; they have confirmed our worst fears. This is being ignored by the lying losers.

    To find out, Radio 1 Newsbeat follows the campaign for the UK’s first major Bi Pride.

    We also hear from bisexual people about the struggles they’ve faced because they’re not attracted to just one gender.

    ………………………………………………………………………………………

    First major BI pride hey !!! There’s another “group” of people, like gays, transgenders, muslims , non binary etc etc who all say they just want to fit in to society. Well, you would fit in if you just shut the f**k up and got on with your life instead of constantly trying to force your views on everyone else.

    You just want to fit in but want marches and events to celebrate your minority and make a big fuss. Why can these people not just get on with their daily lives without always trying create a sense of them being the victim / outcast all the time. They are not. But, they make themselves that way with their constant craving for attention.

    Its not a “battle” being BI … its just being BI.

    I am looking after the house of an elderly relative for a few days while she is in hospital. Just started to use her internet, which happens to be Vodafone, I am with 3.

    “Vodafone age-restricted content controls
    To protect younger customers, we’ve restricted access to adult content on mobile devices. It’s easy to remove the content control bar, you’ll just need a credit card to verify your age. Please note: no payment will be taken.

    If you don’t have a credit card, just take a copy of your photo ID (like a passport or driving licence) to your nearest store and one of our advisers will be happy to help.

    The easiest way to remove the bar is in the My Vodafone app. Alternatively, you can do it from our website

    Remove bar with the My Vodafone app
    1.Log in to the My Vodafone app and choose Products and services in the menu, then tap on Manage Bars and Extras
    2.Scroll down and click Bars and Data Alerts, and within Bars you’ll see Age-restricted content bar
    3.If you’ve verified your identity before, switch the toggle to Off and go to step 7. Otherwise, choose Verify age
    4.Follow the steps to verify your age and enter credit card details. No payment will be taken
    5.In the next screen, click the Bars and Data Alerts link, and within Bars you’ll see Age-restricted content bar
    6.Switch the toggle to Off
    7.Wait 10 minutes and restart the device

    You should get immediate access to over-18s content and a text saying the bar has been removed. Occasionally it may take up to 24 hours.”

    Apparently they are not joking!

    I went to the Vodfone website for more information.

    For Ministers, Lords and to an extent MPs, Brexit remains pretty academic – their money, savings, investments and pensions are very safe indeed. And if ever things get so bad they can afford to relocate. New Zealand used to be highly recommended. Rowling has one of her mansions there.

    Looking at the Trump and Brexit coverage by the bbc and much of the other MSM over the past two years, I don’t think much will change.
    Both were hated, undermined, and sniped at from the minute they won. It gives the Sopels, Kays, Webbs, Husseins, etc their daily bread +++, and it allows them to virtue-signal, for which they have a desperate psychological need. They don’t care about the methods they employ to do it, they just wanna do it.
    They care least of all about the thing to which they pay the most constant lip-service: democracy.
    Attempts to impeach Trump will continue apace. Attempts to reverse Brexit will not cease, until their objectives have been attained, in their eyes. They’re not about to let little things like facts or truths get in the way.
    We can continue to watch two coup attempts in progress at the same time. Since Merkel in 2015, criminal behaviour at the top of politics, backed the media will continue to get a thumbs-up from the PC crowd.
