    Extremely malicious #BiasedBBC headline from BBC’s Frank Gardner March 30
    “The unlikely similarities between the far right and IS”
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-47746271
    cos everyone knows “far right” is an Ad Hom used against anyone challenging metro-liberals.
    A title “similarities between actual Nazis & ISIS” would be OK

    … em Frank’s in the news

      JA.
      They also seem to take it as a given that any future referendum will be May’s treaty or remain.
      How can Remain even be considered when it lost.
      If there is a ‘peoples referendum’ it must be no deal versus whatever May’s treaty ends up as.

      It’s a sight to behold, all these MPs being paraded, one after the other, on the tv in front of the eu flags, and all trying to find ways of telling us that staying in the eu is really leaving and telling us that’s what we want.

      They also seem to think a general election will change nothing.
      It will get rid of about 400 remainers for a start. How can they think we will vote in the same traitors.

    I think you should ease up on Mr Lammy . He is in a very competitive industry – the race hate industry – so he’s got to be out there somewhere ….

    If you were to run the numbers on the physical damage of riots ‘inspired ‘ by stopping his ‘community ‘ against the number of diverse people stabbed to death I think the riots would be the lesser of the ‘evil’ .

    David always has a captive ( thick ) support when he has a pop at plod – much like the scum bag Bernie grant – his predecessor who is thankfully dead after a career or anti white poison on House of Commons expenses …

    I think the diverse community is beyond riot now judging by the constant smell of controlled drugs in the air in Londonistan.

    Uplifting Quote from Guido:

    “”The latest manufacturing PMI figures are out and it’s more grim reading for Merkel and Macron with the Eurozone’s index falling to 47.5 in March – firmly in contraction territory and the lowest level since April 2013. Germany is rapidly becoming the sick man of Europe, its reading of 44.1 is the worst since the crisis days of 2012…

    Meanwhile the UK’s own manufacturing index has surged to a 14-month high of 55.1, coming in far ahead of the forecast of 51.2. The UK could even consider giving the EU a trade deal, if they ask nicely…””

    And the BBC lays it on thick, just portraying a soft brexit as an inevitable fact and the only problem was that the government didnt tell us this ..

    The ROPer gang taking £8billion off us through fraud is not reported on the BBC website, though they do have space for a story about viewing figures of one of their own programmes; and vital stories about toilet charges and Jon Snow hurting someone’s feelings.

    How many knew what they were up to but kept silent as they were petrified of being accused of racism? You can bet many gained the prominent positions which enabled them to perpetrate the fraud as employers were desperate to promote ethnic minorities. Just as Powell warned: race relations laws will be lethal weapons in the wrong hands. Who would risk their career by raising the alarm?

    How is diversity strength when it has cost us £8 billlon in this instance? And can you imagine how much else has gone uncovered? A culture that divinely sanctions cheating the unbeliever – not just permitted but praised by God – alongside a culture that is overly reticent, polite and absolutely petrified of causing offence. This is not some rainbow paradise but a perfect storm; it enabled Rotherham and untold other crimes.

    There is never any OUTRAGE over stuff like this. £8billion? Imagine the cancer drugs and schools you could buy with that. They managed a good week over Boris Johnson’s burqa comments but £8BILLION robbed from us and it is not even mentioned.

    Still, the BBC are on track to hit their diversity targets by 2020 which will solve everything.

      There is also the Billions of Pounds and Dollars tied up in the Cancer charity industry. Imagine a scientist coming up with a cheap cure-all for cancer. This would be an unimaginable disaster for both the drug industry and the Cancer charities. In the 1980’s I remember being told that a dead body found in the Cotswolds was that of an Oxford University scientist who claimed he was on the threshold. Also I heard rumours that it happened again recently.

      An £8 billion ideological battle against reality to compensate for Blacks being at least 15% less intelligent than whites. It already produces lots of comical consequences. But the loony left wouldn’t be able to cope with the idea of equality of outcome in the self employment industry. Unless like every loony ideology since the French Revolution, diversity collapses into madness and a reign of terror.

      ‘There is never any OUTRAGE over stuff like this’ – well, that’s thanks in part to all those degrees in Social Science and similar double-speak permeating down through the system – from local government to the police, the law and beyond.
      All those spurious qualifications created to make ‘a University education available to all’ despite the whole justification and reason for universities being to produce an elite to the benefit of society, the few acting to help the many.
      It’s all part of the diversity nightmare, isn’t it?

      BB – I expect the £8 billion is unfortunately just the tip of the iceberg.

      At the moment I’m taking time off work – between jobs so to speak. My retirement age is less than 10 years off but I’m seriously wondering whether it’s worth bothering to work anymore.

      I no longer earn a half-decent wage as a temp, just OK to live on. A fair proportion of my tax will go on lunatic policies whether Con or Lab are in Government. Council Tax and energy bills are constantly rising.

      Most of the people I’ve worked alongside over the past few years were blue-pilled remainer zombies and I can’t be arsed having conversations with people like that anymore!

      Maybe it’s time I cut down on my outgoings, live frugally and become permanently wedded to JSA/Universal Credit. Being an ethnic minority seems to help but alas I can’t change that! I’ve known of many people who’ve got away with it for years and years without any hassle.

      It might even be the moral thing to do – don’t contribute tax to a Government that hates you, and which will unerringly spend it to ensure your life gets worse!

        Knowing your taxes are spent to look after people who hate you somewhat undermines the social fabric. How much legal aid is spent defending terrorists? All thanks to Blair’s Human Rights Act (Criminal and Lawyers’ Rights Act), which must have netted his human rights lawyer wife millions over the years.

        As for morons at work my rule is say as little as possible. If you don’t say anything you can’t get in trouble. The whole hate crime/thought crime nonsense is a nightmare for people with a sense of humour like me as jokes can so easily be misconstrued.

    11pm Radio4SocialistWorkerguys : Sarah Dunant’s monthly history prog, which serves as her vehyto sneer at Trump and other non-liberal ideas like Brexit.

    \\At a moment when Brexit and our carbon footprints are prompting us to reassess what it means to move around the world, Sarah Dunant looks at the long history of travel and the ways it has enchanted and alarmed us across the centuries.

    The anxieties over young Tudor travellers returning radicalised from Catholic Europe was a phenomenon that gripped England after the break with Rome. Nandini Das argues that fears over travel helped to define a nation.

    Professor Eric Zuelow shows how the Nazi regime turned travel into a highly sophisticated propaganda tool, organising tours and trips specifically designed to cement ideas of racial superiority and national identity.

    In the Middle Ages, travel is seen to be a startlingly tolerant and cosmopolitan experience, as the naturally curious medieval mind seeks to expand the borders of its world in a spirit of generosity.

    And as the destructive nature of travel and excessive footfall becomes clearer, John Slight explains how the new travel technology of the 19th century led to an explosion in the number of Muslim pilgrims to Mecca, threatening the infrastructure, political stability and even its physical environment, as this small town crumbled under the pressure of hundreds of thousands of visitors.//

          We have plenty of evidence that the EU elite have the power to overturn democratic votes which they don’t like in individual countries , Ireland, Denmark, France have all experienced this. I expect that the UK will join them soon. The European elections in May are likely to result in more Eurosceptics MEPs being elected but they still won’t be a majority and so they will be sidelined and ignored.
          There is no doubt that the power of the elite and the MSM will be directed at undermining so called Populists parties over the next few years to diminish the threat that they pose. They use all their tricks, lies and deceptions and ultimately their power of detention to accomplish this.
          So the first question is can the EU be changed, let alone overthrown, by democratic means? The second question is Have we witnessed , almost without realising it, the end of the era of mass democracy and begun the era of oligarchy?

      They don’t want Brexit – we get that and they really think they can fob us off with some ‘Emperors New Clothes’ version?
      Quite why they are continuing with this farce is beyond me.
      They just do not get it do they ?
      Come Election time – they will.

        The Tory party think that when the next GE is held they can ‘beat us with the stick’ that if we don’t vote for them the alternative will be Cor-bin . Well I have news for the Tories……………….
        Watch out for UKIP and The Brexit Party , a grand coalition!

          Taff, the Tories need to understand what they’ve done.

          Among the people I talk to no one is now afraid of a Labour government. The last three years have proved that if the oligarchs don’t want something to happen it won’t, even if we voted for it; and if they want something to happen it will, even if we voted against it. If we elect a Labour government its freedom of action will be “guided” by those who know better.

          We little people believe that the curtain has been torn down, the wizard has been seen and so we are no longer afraid of the socialist bogeyman. Perhaps there is still a lot to be afraid of, but no one will be listening to warnings from the Tories.

          And yes – vote UKIP.

            One would have thought they would have learned following the 2017 GE? ‘Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.’

    I’m saddened to have to report, the fact that owing to a hidden BBC report on the subject, alcohol is definitely a subject of animal products, and as such, all vegans are now prohibited from partaking of alcoholic beverages of any description from now on!

    They’re the rules, the BBC has made it plain in an outstanding report, as yet un-shown to the public, but the chemical analysis of alcohol has minute strains of animal products, obtained through the breatharian concept of animal growth, and which permeates the culture of vegan products to a degree of some magnitude!

    Sorry, vegs, no more alcohol is allowed any more, you’re over-stepping your ‘lifestyle’ and as true vegans, you can never have an alcoholic drink again!

    For once, well done BBC, your researchers have done us all proud!

      we have no options left now. The customs Union option is probably the best we can get and it is not leaving the EU. It is time to consider the nuclear option of joining with Liebor to no confidence May and force a GE. Then the tories, the patriot ones, should align with UKIP and The Brexit Party on the one issue – respecting the referendum result of 2016.
      This will split the tories and may cause a smaller split in liebor, and could ultimately result in a liebor victory. However, we cannot move forward toward Brexit with the current remain parliament in situ, so our options are very limited.
      Forming a Brexit Unity Group is taking a huge risk but the alternative is custom Union, which is no brexit, Mays deal – which is no Brexit or A50 extension, which is no Brexit.

      There’s no point recruiting troop for the British Army if the government can’t rely on them to shoot the people. That’s why May signed us up to the EU army.

      I note that it is with some irony that Ian Birrell in the i newspaper (today’s front page) is claiming that Grieve is being persecuted for being in a Party that has moved to the far right.

      As a long term observer of UK politics, I would have said the Conservative Party hasn’t shifted at all.

      It is Dominic Grieve who has moved to the Far Right as a NeoParliamentary Nazi, prepared to do down our democracy despite having stood for, and won, election to the House on the basis of its democracy AND honouring the result of the EU Referendum.

      Four different apron strings designed by the establishment for nations whose elite want to be in the EU, but whose people do not.

      It looks like Theresa May will create a 100% Remainer Cabinet for a Customs Union Remain. The Brexiteers should create a shadow Cabinet within the Tory party, call an emergency conference, and ask the membership to chose which Cabinet should represent the Tory Party in the General Election. David Davis said there was a secret plan to bring about a WTO Brexit, so it looks like David Davis would be elected temporary shadow cabinet leader for a WTO Brexit. The membership would obviously chose the WTO Brexit cabinet over the Customs Union Remainer cabinet. If the split is in place for the General Election, we could have the official Conservative Party, UKIP and the Brexit party on one side pushing a WTO Brexit. Against the establishment remainer rump of the Conservative Party, Labour and Libdems on the other side pushing a Customs Union Remain. Theresa May could be still Prime Minister while at the same time no longer legally part of the official Conservative Party. This would be the only way that the Tory Party could win the election. It means life long Bennite and Brexiteer, Jeremy Corbyn, has become the Remainer establishment and House of Lords last hope of survival. I think Tony Benn must be turning in his grave and screaming.

    Anna Soubry, obviously waiting around after vote in hope of giving interview, spoke to BBC AND Sky was asked “maybe one word to finish?” “Well” (ok, so that was your word ;-), but no, she launches into her bla bla bla speech yet again, she is not giving up and on Wednesday they’ll get their proposal through … pitiful. They’re all saying, if “they” had voted with US, we’d have won! (You don’t say?)
    And others even suggesting simply “adding the 2 most popular losers would have given them a majority” (at least, that’s how i understood Lucas).
    Do they think before they open their mouths? Apparently not :-(.
    So again it’s best of three??? And they dare to claim they’ll accept the result of another referendum? (as long as it’s remain!)
    As was said in another post, just how stupid/forgetful do they think the people are? Grief, Soubry is on again !!!
    I’m switching off … Good night!
