Start the Week Open Thread April 15 2019

Over to You – it’s Holy Week for Christians so the BBC will be making a special effort to come up with anti Christian ‘stories ‘ as there are some religions of which they approve and others not so much . The Godless can go on in their own happy way …

      The first thing that the great and the good of LA and the ordinary folks , indeed the whole of California, must do is to rebel against the fruit cakes who named them sanctuary cities and a sanctuary state. If they allow such an illegal status to remain in place they can hardly complain when the rest of the US , which certainly doesn’t want illegals, sends them more of the people that their political leaders say they will welcome with open arms. Cher and her luvvies should start a campaign to revoke the sanctuary status and depose those loonies who imposed it.
      Over all DT is playing the immigration issue brilliantly and calling out the dumb Dems in ways they never thought possible. By the way how long before the BBC tries to smear Tiger Woods for his long standing friendship, which he refuses to repudiate, with the President.

      God bless Cher. She has managed to encompass left wing idiocy in just a couple of tweets.

      As a leftist, of course she supports open borders…in the abstract. But she also has just enough self-awareness to realise that LA has its own problems, and just cannot take any more immigrants. So they will just have to go somewhere else. Maybe a state full of deplorables who voted for Trump, that should do it.

      This is how leftism always goes. Leftists love leftism in the abstract, but the problems it always brings are somebody else’s problem to deal with. Certainly not Cher’s. Goodness me no.

        Radical PC Leftism always eats itself, because it is a fundamental contradiction.

        Watch Martina Navratilova, an icon of female sporting achievement, and of lesbianism, no less, get thrown under the bus because she opposes the new orthodoxy that blokes who have decided they want to be women are allowed to invade female sports under the ‘transgender’ label.

        Why, as one Brazilian female volleyball star noted, should she be available for random testing at any time of any day to ensure she is not ingesting testosterone, when people who have been flooded with testosterone for 30 years are being invited to walk into her sport if they buy a pair of breasts and put on some lippy?

        I think this will be one of the big issues going forward; women’s sport has made unbelievable strides in the past 50 years, and that is all being threatened by the ‘transgender’ invasion.

        The PC Left is in a bind on this one, because of the fundamental contradictions of the Victim/Oppressor narrative.

        I hope it turns out badly for them.

    If its already been mentioned – apologies.
    But I had to chuckle when the subject of immigration was discussed on that laughable programme the Pledge. Out of the 5 around the table the 3 who were most animated in the discussion were all of colour – June Sarpong, Trevor Phillips, and Maajid Nawaz. The others on the panel Michelle Dewberry and Nick Ferrari barely uttered a word – well actually they couldn’t get a word in.

    I thought, this is rich, they are discussing immigration, and its their parents who arrived here who were the cause of it all ! Didn’t refer to that though did they, oh no.

    Wow! I’m ahead of myself! ‘Start the Week Open Thread’? Sorry, but I need to refer to the news on BBC Radio 4 at 2200 hrs Sunday 14th April. Should l go back to the Weekend Thread and report there for consistency?
    Anyway, less of that.
    Has anybody been listening to the programme I refer to above?
    It took me about 15 minutes to realise that it’s an all women panel and as you would expect, the girls on the ‘panel’ get ‘chattery’ as women do when men are not present. You can detect it in their voices: sentences close with last words becoming more of a flattened superiority growl. That’s my description. Turned off when I made the realisation that it was more of a WI get together rather than something worth listening to. Half expected to hear a debate on nappies or the benefits of a particular washing powder.
    It was first TV broadcasts I ditched in 2017 and I’ve run down my exposure to Radio 4 incrementally (without intention to do so) but I’m reaching the conclusion that I should dispense with BBC radio all together as well.
    Goodnight.

      I listened to Woman’s Hour briefly I think on Thursday. They had a couple of women including one of colour discussing some BBC programme that I can only be pleased not to have come across. Teabag? Fleabag? Something like that. However they were all delighted to see women of all shapes, sizes and colours having sex in the programme including casual sex. Apparently it made them feel better about themselves.

      Substitute the word ‘men’ for ‘women’ and I don’t think it would have been at all acceptable on the BBC.

    I am pleased to report some good news. It’s even on the BBC site but I don’t think that they can be very happy about it. (Which I suppose is good news in itself)
    But there has been a general election in Finland. It was a tight result for the top three parties, but the Finns Party has come second only one seat behind the Social Democrats. (Labour equivalent) and one seat behind them are the Tory equivalent.
    A great result for a populist party!
    Yes, I know they came second last time but in the meantime, that is since 2016, they had a dreadful split and languished in the polls below 10% for around three years and till a short while ago looked like they would be lucky to manage fifth place.
    But they stuck with it, didn’t they?
    So there is a lesson there, oh ye of little faith, ye that cry out (endlessly) “Woe unto us, Ukip is done for” that the political scene is, and always will be, a turbulent one and those who wish to make an impact should be robust enough to survive reversals in fortune.
    Yes, the Finns do have a proportional system but the principle remains the same.
    Anyway the EU won’t be happy with the result any more than the BBC, but those of us who like to keep an eye on the international situation will say “Rejoice!”

      I listened to a report on this on BBC Radio Scotland around 6:45 this morning. Despite coming second they were still labelled with the boo-word(s) “far-right”. And the impartial commentator brought on to enlighten us was quick to point out that 80% didn’t vote for them. Not so quick to point out that the same applies to the Socialists but the Finns will likely get socialism anyway.

    Here is a little gem from the anti Christian BBC.
    Under 4 things you can expect this week at number 4, (after Indonesian (muslim) elections and an Attenborough programme that climate change is going to kill us all by October the 4th) is this snippet about Easter. Can you spot the inference that some reading may not be Christian? Oh and they got the bit in about the moon, bit of commonality there….

    4) Easter weekend

    More than 2.2 billion Christians across the world will mark Easter this weekend.

    The most important festival in the Christian calendar will begin with Good Friday ceremonies to mark Christ’s crucifixion.

    It is the latest Easter date since the year 2011, when it fell on 24 April – the date coincides with the first full moon after the spring equinox.

      It really is quite some achievement that there are 2.6 billions followers of Christianity – a religion that doesn’t KILL you if you leave, or in milder cases ostrosise you.

    Around 3am on Five Live Through The Night: a lengthy whinge about how podcasters are not diverse enough. A young lady has made it her ‘quest’ to make them more diverse. Wouldn’t stopping the horrific violence be a more noble calling? I can’t imagine the dying words of a stabbed boy being: “If only the History Today producer had been mixed race . . .”

    I can maybe accept that it’s important to have equal representation on screen as everyone needs to know they can maybe make it if they try. But on a podcast you obviously can’t see anyone. Maybe some of the stuff I listen to is narrated by Asian men; I have no idea and I do not care. No right-minded person wants to know the skin colour of a podcaster.

    We then hear clips of a promoted podcast – possibly of the girl who wants to ethnically cleanse white men from podcasting – and it is painful: literally refugees meeting CEOs and talking about empowerment. I had to switch off the radio and go back to sleep. It is a miracle I did not choke on my own vomit.

    There will always be programmes you enjoy and those you don’t; but to regularly produce material so infuriating you’re forced to switch off in disgust really is quite an achievement. What a beauty.

    I switched on The week in Westminster , heard who was on it ,switched off and went to sleep.I wonder if this MP has any idea that by denying the Democratic vote she is of the faction “inciting violence ” – a bit like the Court Jester – (sir) David Lammy .

    Avoiding Toady Monday but glancing over the BBC news website . A Detective in the Met Police – working with Cambridge University – has come up with research that where people are knifed in London there will be more knifing .

    The type of victim and stabber didn’t get much of a mention nor anything that can be done with such a “revelation”.

    It reminded me of those surveys which shows that where there are cars there are car accidents ….

    its almost funny but then we must realise that the taxpayer funded such dumb research . I bet the detective makes a living on the results of his stupid work.

    One Sri Lankan man challenging deportation in January was told by the judge that he could remain because he faced political persecution in his home country, even though he has been a persistent offender.

    Between March 2003 and August 2017, he accrued 41 convictions for 53 offences including drink-driving, driving a vehicle while uninsured, being drunk and disorderly, theft, using threatening, abusive or insulting words, causing harassment, committing battery and destroying property.

      We need to being in democratic accountability for our judges. The law does not belong to them, nor their disreputable profession, and if they fail to administer it in a proper way they should be judged by the people who they sit in judgement over. That might bring a return to common sense in these matters.

    And another one, with his well paid, no doubt diverse lawyers defending the indefensible:

    Abdul Rauf, 50, goes about his daily business here as though he hasn’t a care in the world. The married father-of-five lives in a three-bedroom house with a small garden on a respectable street and drives his Toyota car to the nearby mosque, shops for groceries and pays visits to his friends.

    He is often dressed in pale green Islamic robes and the traditional taqiyah head-covering of a devout Muslim (he used to be a preacher). There is nothing to mark him out as a convicted criminal who is unwelcome in Britain.

    Yet Rauf was a member of a gang, some of whose members committed the most hideous crime imaginable: multiple rape and sexual abuse of underage girls.

    He himself was convicted of trafficking and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child. He was put on the sex offenders’ register and jailed for six years at his 2012 trial, during which he wept in the dock, claiming one of his victims ‘looked maybe 30’ and saying he made a mistake.

    Rauf was part of a nine-strong sex-grooming gang convicted for targeting 47 girls as young as 13 between 2005 and 2008, in what the trial judge said were ‘callous, vicious and violent’ attacks motivated by ‘lust and greed’.

    The sordid and cruel details of their depravity make it almost impossible to believe they are still in the UK.

    They plied the girl victims with drugs and alcohol and passed them around for sex. The youngsters were assaulted and raped by as many as five men, one after the other, often multiple times a week.

    One member of the gang, Adil Khan, started having sex with one victim just a few weeks after the birth of his son. She was persuaded, at first, to think the then 42-year-old taxi driver was her boyfriend. She became pregnant by him, but had an abortion.

    In his case to stay, Khan argued that he wanted to be reunited with his seven-year-old son and social workers were preventing him seeing the boy, who was upset at being parted from his father.

    As a ringleader of the Rochdale gang, Abdul Aziz ferried girls from Rochdale to orgies as far away as Leeds and Bradford, and was paid for introducing them to other men.

    After the trial, three of the gang with dual British and Pakistani nationalities — Rauf, Khan and Aziz — were stripped of their British citizenship as a prelude to deportation to Pakistan. Yet the Mail can reveal that nearly six years after their imprisonment, these sexual predators are still living in the same region where they abused the girls. Rauf even has a house very near where some of the attacks took place

  24. Annunaki says:

    Rauf was once a part-time preacher at a nearby mosque, the Bilal Masjid, but was sacked for bad timekeeping before the trial. However, he is still a regular worshipper and travels by car to pray at Islamic services in and around Rochdale. Although Rauf is listed on public records as still living with his wife at the house with a small garden, she — following the shame of her husband’s conviction — is rarely seen going out these days.

    Meanwhile, an appeal by him, Khan and Aziz against being stripped of their British citizenship in August last year was rejected. They argued unsuccessfully that their family life would be harmed if they were thrown out of Britain.

    But they have still not left the country and Rauf this week showed no signs of preparing to do so.

    Keystone Kops make breakthrough in fight against knife crime… A murder detective with the Metropolitan Police (‘We do Facebook and Twitter”) has developed a cunning method for predicting ‘fatal stabbing areas’ in London. Apparently, further stabbings are more likely to occur in areas where there have previously been stabbings. Naturally, there is no explanation or coherent theory as to why this might be. However, we can safely assume that: it is nothing to do with the demographics in some of those areas, involving feral youths of predictable ethnic backgrounds; nothing to do with gangs; nothing to do with music that glorifies violence, aggression and alienation on racist radio stations such as BBC 1 Xtra.

    Are journalists really so thick that they can’t question that someone with a drone can see what the drone sees? I despair.
    Apparently the Gatwick drone disruption was an inside job.
    “A Gatwick chief told BBC Panorama the drone’s pilot “seemed to be able to see what was happening on the runway”.”

      G, thing was the drone was flown intermittently. Only after the Airport started its re-open procedures did the drone fly again. It wasn’t what was visible to the drone operator when in the air. They either had a great pair of binoculars or were ‘recce-ing’ the field activity via RT hacking or were a staff member, perhaps in the Control Tower or with experience of working there.

    Is the Labour anti-Semitism row being used to discredit Jeremy Corbyn?

    “The rise of anti-Semitism in Labour came with the election of Jeremy Corbyn,” claims Jewish Labour MP Louise Ellman. She wants it resolved but doesn’t say he should resign.

        It is indeed informing that left wing blatant racism is given a different nameby them when they wish to practice their intolerance, i.e antisemitism when it is, in fact, plain racism, which is the main point of attack of the left to anyone who calls them out, so let us not play their game in hiding their racism, call it what it is, in fact : racism they are racist.

        It is also informng that there was another regime that displayed the same intolerance to this particular race, go figure as they say and that regime did not fare well once it started putting their wishes into practice, history does seem to repeat, maybe Corbyn will end up in a bunker under Whitehall,

    TOADY Watch #1

    Oh dear! Jeremy Hunt, Foreign Secretary, lets slip in an interview with The Humph (R4 8.10 on) that a No Deal Brexit would be advantageous to Britain in its trade with Japan creating an instant new trade deal.

    Is Hunt correct about that? The Humph did not check or challenge. I wonder why?

    The Humph did not check or challenge over the possibility that the Cooper/Letwin Bill does not do what it says in ruling out a No Deal Brexit. I wonder why?

    There was no mention that saving £39bn Brexit ransom money AND having an instant & favourable trade deal with Japan would be good for the UK. I wonder ….

      Hunt is a liar. I heard him repeat the mantra, “the people just want us to get on with leaving (the EU)”. On Treason May’s ‘deal’. Blatantly forgetting that the, “people” have a better idea of the salient points of the WA than him.
      Yes, they want out but not in the manner in which liar Hunt recommends.

        G, was quite impressed with Hunt at Health. But I agree, he seemed somewhat ‘economical’ when toeing the Theresa May line on the WA – although maybe I should use the standard misspell referring to that – ‘towing the Theresa May line’. I might add ‘Hunt is tied in to it as Cabinet Policy’. Well, just over half the Cabinet Policy.

      Lammy was clearly being a racist recently, although it was disguised. Maybe we should begin with that?

    An idea for you. Bear with me.
    The BBC are reporting that the Scottish government are to create a ‘Right to Food’.
    I’ve been toying with the following logic sequence for a while.

    Food must be a basic right. So it must be wrong for people to eat on the basis of wealth. Therefore we should nationalise all the supermarkets. A lot of money could be saved as there would be the same products in all stores and minimise duplication and competition. All the food would be provided free of charge, you might say free at the point of delivery. In essence it would be needs-based. Families would need more food, single people less. All the food would be paid for out of general taxation. Employees would be protected, as state employees they would get a good level of pay and generous salary related pension schemes. These would be unfunded and paid for out of future taxation of succeeding generations. What could be more fair?
    Complaints would be frowned on, as such complaints would imply criticism of the whole system, so would entail a complex process.
    The single entity providing this fair and nirvana-like idealistic service would need a name, and my proposal is to call it the NFS, National Food Service.
    Any resemblance to any other service you could think of is entirely co-incidental.

      “as there would be the same products in all stores”

      Sorry, have to correct you on that. There would be no products in the stores, only massive shortages within 6 months. This would not be due to incompetence, you understand, only “lack of funding”.

      A thought though. Perhaps the supply of knives and drugs should be nationalised. That should solve one problem at least.

         21 likes

      • Sluff says:

        I stand corrected. As there would be no price mechanism to control supply and demand, there may need to be queues and waiting lists for certain products. Naturally, a large department would be created centrally to ensure people in different towns and regions did not suffer differentially from such shortages. This might be mitigated by large annual above-inflation payments to rectify under-funding, which many employees and left wing politicians would support.

        Alternatively of course, a bigger private sector component in the NHS could have a lot going for it……..

    “Post Modernists”; “Cultural Marxism” – Apart from ‘Globalism’ and, of course islam, these are the other debilitating influences of our time. In fact, for the ordinary folk, these two probably represent the most obvious symptoms of how our World is rapidly being corrupted by evil. If the descriptions, “Post Modernists” and, “Cultural Marxism” confuse, I recommend Jordan Petersons video where all is explained, very, very thoroughly.

    The Scottish government may be well served to look at all their thousands of square miles of land owned by “nobility” for fishing and hunting, and think again about rights for food

    A study into who owns Scotland’s land and the impact that has on the people who live there is to be carried out by the new Scottish Land Commission (SLC).

    It has been estimated that fewer than 500 people own half of all privately-owned land in Scotland.

    That is one of the highest concentrations of land ownership in Europe.

    Analysis by land reform campaigner and now Green MSP Andy Wightman has estimated that half of the privately-owned land is in the hands of 432 people.

    Brexit Central email today:

    “… since the last extension of the Article 50 period, the Government has changed the way to extend the ‘exit date’ in law from requiring a vote in the House of Commons to a way which does not require a vote (using a Statutory Instrument subject to the negative procedure, to use the technical term). At the risk of losing readers to arcane parliamentary procedure, the only way for Brexiteers to stop the change now is to “pray” against it. A prayer is a parliamentary procedure which, if passed, would put the latest Brexit extension to a vote in the House of Commons. 41 eurosceptic Tories have tabled a prayer, and therefore are currently “praying” against the change in the law, but it is unlikely that the Government will grant them time to hold a vote. The last time a change in the law was annulled in this way in the House of Commons was 1979.”
