    Much was made of the fall in the London Stock Market and the £ Sterling on currency markets following the result of the EU Referendum in June 2016, usually by Remainers and Remoaners.

    Strangely, it appears that today ‘the markets’ are rather whelmed by the postponement of Brexit for 6½ months.

    I wonder if the Remainers and Remoaners. will be on R4 to comment and whether the programme Presenter will ask them about it.

    No?

    I rather thought not.

      I always enjoy the MSM headlines about ‘billions wiped of share values ‘ I was watching it at opening today and have concluded that ‘billions were wiped off and added to share prices ‘ it’s something called ‘trading’.

      I tried c4 news to witness more snowflake madness but gave up as they insist on presenting in front of the loop who shouts
      ‘Brexit ‘all the time .

      The ‘journo village ‘ is going to be removed in order to replace the lawn they have destroyed whilst ‘remaining ‘. Maybe they could move it to Tower Hamlets …

    Oh dear.
    Was watching an interesting discussion featuring Sir Roger Scruton and Jordan Peterson as the main guests: both thought it would be a good idea to cut funding to universities.
    Their reasons were actually very sound, but I can imagine the outcry this point of view would produce in our postmodern utopia!
    The postmodern humanities curriculum, says Sir Roger, is no longer a project of love, in which a person passes on knowledge of what they have loved. The postmodern curriculum is one of hatred, directed against our cultural inheritance: one after one, its works are paraded before us, stripped naked, and thrashed.
    “This negativity,” Sir Roger observes, “is subsidised..by the taxpayer.”
    The two of them were discussing the transcendent merits of great works of art/music/literature of our culture.
    When you listen to this conversation, you realise why the one has lost an unpaid advisory job to government (probably a compliment), and the other gets ‘no-platformed’ at a university (no doubt, also a compliment).
    Earlier on, they have identified the problem with the postmodern: it herds people into hostile groups, identifies where power comes into play in the new situation, and how someone can benefit from such power.
    I was led to think of the ‘decolonisation’ nonsense that has popped up in certain universities, and how that has been deftly exploited.
    Indeed, we see this dynamic at work outside universities as well; it has been seeping out from them and into broader society for years…
    And it seems to explain why Radio 4 for instance, once a purveyor of quality entertainment, now more often than not, merits the ‘off’ button, as it gravitates to certain recent novel ideologies, and -alas-increasingly trashes our own cultural inheritance.
    Why am I rambling on and on?
    All I was actually doing was trying to figure out how a lightweight like Brokenshire is able to snap his fingers and dispose of a heavyweight like Sir Roger, when I came across said discussion.
    Ah yes, of course: taxpayer subsidies…
    Ditto R4, where the licence payer docks up.
    Norway, is it, where the public broadcaster’s income has now been moved from licence fee source directly to the taxpayer. Should we ever get rid of the licence fee, I think that will be how it’s done?

      fnw, problem is that might produce a Taxpayer Revolution on two fronts.

      Those who do not use TV will object, including the poor, troubled, young. Secondly, taxpayers might insist on scrapping the DG post and Board on the grounds that the Corporation should be directed via the taxpayer on the grounds of “No taxation without representation.”

    “A Muslim actress who is in Emmerdale Farm ( never seen it ) has been sacked for ‘ historic offensive tweets’ – I think the Daily Mail has them and the ‘ n’ word is involved .”

    At least the producers of Emmerdale showed some contrition, Fed. In 1985 the BBC launched a television soap called ‘Eastenders’. It started off well, but then the tabloids disclosed a real scoop on one of the show’s stars, Leslie Grantham. It turned out that Grantham was a convicted murderer.

    “Scoundrel Dirty Den was the villain of the piece from the start but Leslie Grantham had a chequered past even before he took the role.
    In 1967, when he was 20, he was convicted of the murder of a taxi driver in Germany in 1967. He was sentenced to life imprisonment but was released after ten years in jail. After leaving prison, he took up his famous role on EastEnders in the 1980s, before later returning in 2003.”
    THe Sun, April 2019.

    Apparently, being a convicted murderer wasn’t an obstacle to becoming a star on BBC television, provided you brought in more viewers.
    If they can keep a convicted killer on the books, then the transgressions of Jimmy Savile, Stuart Hall, Rolf Harris, Chris Denning et al pale into insignificance.

      I notice some people on this site making comments of dubious content in the early hours ( you reading this maxi ?) but that’s a way difference from getting sacked and maybe never being an actress again ….

    The Beeb are leading with this Assange thing on R4 news today, despite it now being ‘old news’. When I heard about it on TWatO at 1pm yesterday, I wondered if the Extradition Warrant was another attempt by The Swamp to dig dirt on President Trump on behalf of the Democratic Party.

    If so, Jeremy Corbyn is not going to be ‘Flavor of the Month’ with the Democrats over there anytime soon.

    Under the circumstances it’s all too easy to be accused of paranoia. What with the machinations of the ‘European Parliament’, Macron, Merkel, Barnier, Juncker, Tusk and the rest, the built-in ineptitude of the current government, the absurd and unnecessary 2017 election – so transparently designed to reduce a massive majority and create a weak and malleable political environment – and now the latest delays, increasing the reality of a once great nation being made to appear both risible and pitiful. Added to which a ludicrously skewed media fuels the fires with smirking enthusiasm.
    All this, and the one tangible hope for change, a movement to reflect and abide by the will of the people, is conveniently split in two, dividing the vote and allowing the establishment to maintain its grip, however slippery. Anyone would think the whole thing – from the incredible timing and coincidence of Jo Cox’s murder all the way through to the Batten/Farage infighting, has been engineered. But things like that don’t happen, do they? That would just be paranoia, wouldn’t it?

      Sorry Sir Roger I think you have your negatives inverted.

      I suggest this should read “So do (not believe him)”.

      The importance of the story, however, is that there is only one race which can, indeed must, be criticised, at all times.

      We must never allow criticism of the “heritage” of the two negative IQ robbers from 5 million BC pictured above

        I suggest the meaning is, “A writer who says that there are no truths, or that all truth is ‘merely relative’, is effectively asking you not to believe him. So don’t”.

        I don’t think the hypothetical writer is expicitly asking anyone to believe or not believe, in the same way that an actor playing a part might be said to be ‘asking’ the audience to suspend believe. That doesn’t mean that they introduce their performance by issuing some sort of health warning – “CAUTION: What you are about to hear is not necessarily representative of what I am or the opinions that I hold”. (Actually, given the current trend that won’t be long in actually happening!)

        Sir Roger is right.

    While we’ve all been indulging in Brexit, I’ve been reading an ongoing murder mystery.
    Its latest instalment appears today on ‘Politicsweb.co.za’, entitled: ‘Coligny: a murder mystery.’ The case is also known around the world as ‘the sunflower murders’.
    One comment says that this was “A racist stitch up, from the beginning. Incompetent police, incompetent Prosecuting Authority, incompetent defence team…the guilty verdict was to appease the baying, racist mob.”
    Another says: ” A Stalinist trial would have seemed fair by comparison. Here we had the direct threat of massive mob violence and intimidation….”
    Mandela’s ‘new South Africa’ not looking that new, or that attractive, after 25 years? It appears there was arson and looting in the town of Coligny itself, throughout the case. To stoke a little pressure…
    It also appears from the cellphone evidence alone, that the two men who were found guilty couldn’t have done it.
    But alas for them, in a highly politicized environment, they are of the wrong colour, in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

    Telegraph on Scruton
    \\ The Government .. ought to stand by its man.
    It says much about the Conservative Party’s crisis of identity that it won’t do the decent thing.
    This happened before with Toby Young, a journalist and education campaigner appointed to the board of a new university regulator only to be hit with a barrage of highly personal criticism that forced him to resign. The Tories want to hire radicals who can shake things up, which is desperately needed, but they don’t have the bottle to defend them when they are criticised for the very things that make them a maverick.
    One likely consequence of the Scruton and Young stories is that any non-politician offered a government job will think twice because it isn’t worth the reputational damage,
    and politics will thus become ever more the preserve of a tiny band of political professionals with identikit views completely out of touch with popular opinion or concrete reality. //

      \\ rootless cosmopolitan was used against the Jews. //
      Embury replied
      \\ I used two everyday adjectives alongside a string of others in a discussion that wasn’t even about Jews.
      How dare you accuse me of anti-Semitism on such flimsy grounds. Disgraceful. //

        The divide in our society is between:

        (1) A rootless, cosmopolitan, bohemian middle-class who live in walled off gated communities, protecting them from burglary and other crimes, and with bollards protecting them from terrorism and all the other consequences that come with mass immigration.
        (2) A rooted, communitarian, patriotic working-class who cannot afford all that expensive protection, but expect the Government to protect the nation.

        In 1086, the rich lived in gated off Castles, the Middle-Classes lived in walled off towns and the poor lived unprotected.

        In 1940, both rich and poor where protected by the Channel.

        In 2018, since Windrush, civilisation has gone into reverse with the rich now back living behind Walls in gated off communities within cities. The BBC has Security Guards paid by people who cannot afford Security Guards, but who are mocked by BBC staff who live behind Walls, yet mock Trump supporters who want a Wall to protect the national community.

        I live in a very hideously white part of the countryside, so its still a bit like 1940, very civilised, so we don’t need walls like those patriotic working class people who suffer the consequences of mass immigration in Hull.

    Anybody opened up a communication from Westmonster today?
    It’s changed. For the worst it seems. You cannot now read their always superficially scant take on major news items now without downloading ‘something’ to enable you to read the feature. Not interested. Their ‘News’ is avalable in any number of places. If I cannot ‘unsubscribe’ (because you no longer are presented with that option), then it will have to be the ‘block sender’ route.

    Hammond said, “Making preparations for events that we HOPE will not happen is an everyday part of government.””

    Says it all, really. The Tories never intended there to be a No-Deal Brexit. Despite it being democratically voted for by the British population.

    The UK no longer has migrants or asylum seekers….according to the BBC….

    About 30 foreign nationals have been found in the back of a van stopped by police on the M5.

    Officers were called at about 07:10 BST to Newlyn, Cornwall, after people were seen getting into the back of a van from a boat.

    It was stopped near Cullompton in Devon at about 09:00 and about 30 people, believed to be Vietnamese, were found inside.

    Four men have been arrested on suspicion of modern slavery offences.

        Due to widespread ignorance at the BBC, due to the fact that all of the science editors seem to be scientifically unqualified Arts, Media, Languages and other subjects unique to low IQ W1A morons who went to University.

        No one employed by the BBC would know that if you see the Sun shining within the Arctic circle, then the ice would be melting. Ignorance at the BBC would be caused by the lack of images of the ice freezing in the Winter, because its very very dark all Winter long, so nobody at the BBC travels to Ellesmere Island in the wintertime because its very very cold and dark.

          Richard, even with the sun shining ice will not melt if it isn’t warm enough. If I recall my science education correctly, ice at the Poles and on large glaciers evaporates as much as, if not more than, it melts.

        In Mathematics, the non-binary community is a community made up of anything from base-3 to base infinity. Therefore an infinitely large community. But no sex involved, so no one at the BBC would know anything about this Community.

    LBC, Eddie Mair, in full Remain mode tonight; the station is remarkably finding all the callers are Remainers and lots of plugs for Mr Farage’s one man band. The only mention of UKIP that I heard was when the news interlude referred to Mr Farage as the former leader of UKIP.

    LBC are deliberately avoiding mention of UKIP.

    I’ve stopped listening so things might have changed but I doubt it.

    Edit:
    Gerard Batten had notified us that UKIP have raised enough money to leaflet every household in the country. He’s also got enough money to fight the EU elections and the local elections and anything left over will go to funding the next general election. Match that Mr Farage.

    Could this be because Aunty is coming around to the idea of Brexit in some sort of road to Damascus conversion – or do you think there is some other reason?

      Oak,
      Nigel is , or at least says he is, quite open to increased third world migration and never says a word about Islamification. UKIP has been telling the truth about Islam since Batten became leader. In the BBC eyes Islamophobia is even worse than Leaving .

    Yes DT I think Aunty is hoping to split the vote. What so grinds my gears is that apart from UKIP there are no major political parties that seem to have any concern about the industrialised rape of kids in Northern towns.

    And if you are concerned about this you are a knuckle dragging member of the “far” right. As Nigel likes to call us. Damm people complaining about the still ongoing sexual abuse of kids and young women its all so inconvenient when you are trying to push a narrative

      “A posh yank”? Surely that is like “an honest politician”. It is an oxymoron. As a boy I learned that, by definition, the only people that can be described as “posh” are the white upper class British and quite right too. Now, President Trump may be our last hope for a civilized and sane world but is he “posh”??!! Never sir!

        Quite right. President Trump is ‘new money’.

        POSH in America means that you have to have arrived with the Pilgrim Fathers or as soon after as humanly possible. You will speak, to the untutored or careless ear, your American with a British accent and you will try to keep to certain standards even if in somewhat pecuniarily challenged circumstances.

        As to President Trump being our last hope for a sane world, I would have to remind you that he is – with all due respect – an ex-TV Game Show host. 😉 That said, I will enjoy the discomfort of the US Democratic Party and its supporters if he stands in 2020 and is re-elected with a clear majority.

            Gaxvil, yeah shorthand lets us all down at times. I actually share your concern. Much as I like Yanks and they like me (have some good friends there) or Aussies & Kiwis, S.Africans and Canadians (similarly), I do get upset when UK appears to be ‘taken over’*, especially in certain areas such as education. If we had only 300,000 unemployed in UK and huge numbers of vacancies, then I’d be much more relaxed about that. We have 1 million 300,000+ unemployed in UK at present. If those countries let Brits in to live and work like we do, I’d be fine with them coming here, as the quid pro quo would work for me and my fellow Brits. But those countries generally have tough restrictions on migration, especially from Britain. Finally, we need to have room for genuine refugees in the UK and it seems to me that Americans can swan in here at will but Asia Bibby gets turned down.

            That ain’t right!
