      Congratulation .
      Just caught a bit of Toady – going on about whether the PM should go now or later . It shows how out of touch the BBC is with brexiters .

      The PM has devalued the office and democracy so much that people don’t care about her or her Party – people just want them gone .

      What David Attenborough told BBC viewers about this raging orangutan fighting a digger is only part of the truth… and that’s just one of the flaws in the great naturalist’s ‘alarmist’ new documentary, writes DAVID ROS
      One of the most talked-about programmes of the past week – a primetime documentary on BBC1 – featured two people many seem to regard as living saints.

      One was the presenter, Sir David Attenborough, the other Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenage activist inspiring climate change ‘school strikes’ in several countries, including Britain.

      The film rounded off a week which had already seen the BBC invite Extinction Rebellion extremists on to its news shows to expound the message – without serious challenge – that unless we cut greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2025, ‘our children will die’.

      https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6943475/What-Attenborough-told-BBC-viewers-orangutan-fighting-digger-truth.html

      AOC gives humanity just 12 years.

      The climate change they are afraid of is Trump. That Climate Change is giving rise to hysteria in the USA and beyond.

    Around 300 ‘reactions’ (many not positive) and twenty comments, almost all negative.

    If Labour bases its bandwagon policy swerves on BBC coverage of Graun talking points, they are in for a nasty shock come an actual ballot, if still allowed.

      Extinction Rebellion ?

      “Extinction” is apparently global in reach.

      These people are claiming not just human but all life is heading for extinction. They go even further and posit that even “Climate” is heading for extinction. What they mean by this claim I have no idea.

      Do they have any basis for such wide claims. No, but they do have children making these claims, so we must grant them their wish – hundreds of billions of dollars a year to destroy an economic system that is lifting people out of poverty, while at the same time improving the planet habitat.

      I cannot think of a more perverse agenda to destroy the planet in every way, then this marxist power grab. The USSR was a perfect example of reducing a people to destitution, leading then to become alcoholics, while raping the ecology of the USSR at very level.

      When is this event going to take place? It will be soon after the next election. That is why the urgency for Pres Trump to be impeached now, or defeated in 2020.

      Its plain and simple power politics on a global scale. Pres Trump was the wrecker of this insane power grab, and that is why he is hated beyond reason.

    Can’t link now, but Googling ‘Times Israel Johnson blog Corbyn shrugs’ should bring up an analysis of Corbyn’s anti-Semitism and a mocking short video – which reminded me that many a true word is said in jest.

    Should he become PM he will take the country back about 7 centuries to the expulsion of the Jews.

    (OK, that’s unlikely, but if Corbyn had the guts to express his true feelings I’ve no doubt that’s what he would wish for.)

      GW,
      Apparently, Treason May is about to announce the award of certain contractual parts of the coming 5g system despite dire warnings from UK Security. It seems that the UK Government is to pursue a, “Managed Risk Approach” to Huwewi in that the Communist China company will be awarded low-risk elements of the system.
      I for one have the utmost confidence in our Government ‘Managing’ the risk………LoL! Don’t you?
      The reality is, Communist China ignores International Patent Laws as anyone having purchased a ‘look-alike’ item from China will have realised. What could go wrong in this partnership between a, ‘Strong and Stable’ UK Government and a seasoned Communist thief?

        People are so slow to recognise what is going on, and even when you tell them they still cannot accept it. Allow me to state it again.

        THERESA MAY IS A MARXIST ! how difficult can it be to recognise the thing in the tin is different to the label?

        She is advised and counselled by Communist sympathiser Olly Robbins, and she has been highly successful in destroying the Tory party from within – the dim witted idle posh boys thought she was wonderful.

        Aside from the Huwei contracts here are some of the highlights.

        Refused to ban known active leftist terrorist group antifa desipte security advice, and instead banned some little known right wing groups no one had heard of full of inadequates fantasists and mentally ill.

        Backed the policies of Robert Mugabe and Cyril Ramaposa, both of them extreme leftists in the seizure of private property without compensation. At the same time the US government was threatening sanctions would be imposed if they went ahead.

        Constantly muttering about the leftist dream of ‘equality’ which is of course unachievable even through the Mao suit.
        Diversity, burning injustice, womens rights, the list goes on & on, Oh and then there’s the financial support she’s giving to Al Qaeda ! DIdn’t know about that one? Go look it up because the UK is funding Al Nusra to fight against Saudi’s enemy in Syria.

        Then there’s t he 11 point plan of the frankfurt school of Marxism which May is following to the letter:

        1. The creation of racism offences.

        2. Continual change to create confusion.

        3. The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children.

        4. The undermining of schools’ and teachers’ authority.

        5. Huge immigration to destroy identity.

        6. The promotion of excessive drinking.

        7. Emptying of churches.

        8. An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime.

        9. Dependency on the state or state benefits.

        10. Control and dumbing down of media.

        11. Encouraging the breakdown of the family.

        On top of this she has reduced the Police and the Military to a fraction of what they need to be, making the UK and easy target for invasion and take over, and rule, yet government spending is as bad as it would be under Corbyn!

        Wake up people time to call a spade a spade and if you cannot recognise May for what she is then you need to check your education !

        Slightly aside from your comment; a few months ago we watched a local item on the BBC evening programme.

Difficult to tell them apart nowadays.

      The answer is simply she’s gone bananas. She is not coping with life or her job. Let’s put it frankly she needs help. When George the third went off the rails they appointed the Prince Regent. I’m not sure what can be done when a prime minister loses it. I think the Remoaners in the Conservative are exploiting it, and unfortunately the Brexit faction led by the ineffective Jacob Rees-Mosque are far too polite to say anything.

      The BBC has to painfully report that Muslims are the mass murderers of Catholics in Sri Lanka – and one even studied here in UK . I bet we don’t find out which mosque he studied his bomb making skills at .
      I think the BBC high command realise their anti Christian language was too stupid and got noticed .
      They’ve dropped the ‘ Easter worshippers ‘ line and now admitting Christians were at Mass when they were slaughtered .

      But they are still deflecting attention from the Muslim killers onto the families destroyed .

Easter is where Christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ and where muslims deny the resurrection ever took place and hold that this Christian belief is blasphemous in the sight of _allah_.

        They have been broadcasting continuously since Easter, that the bombers misinterpreted the peaceful teachings of Islam.

      Louise Raw is one of these people for whom the word “eugenics” conjures up the image of Nazi doctors and she stops thinking as soon as she hears it. Actually the fascinating and important subject of the genetic deterioration of western populations is one that demands our attention. Of course, lefties want to keep people like Richard Lynn away from our education (indoctrination) system since he produces evidence for the heritability of traits like intelligence and conscientiousness and suggests that these might actually be desirable. The establishment do not see a problem in the low-fertility professional class exhibiting higher intelligence and stronger moral character than the high-fertility proletariat. Even if they accepted it as a fact, they would not accept that its basis is genetic. And they definitely cannot accept that the influx of low-IQ, low-conscientiousness, high-fertility third world immigrants could be having an adverse effect on our societies. Only leftists think that stupidity is as good as intelligence, disease is as acceptable as health, and criminality is as socially valuable as law-abidingness. The slightest suggestion that you are even considering these issues means you must be a Nazi doctor and ostracised.

          A few days ago on LBC, I think it was Mr Ferrari, an apologist for these eco-loons was asked why they are disrupting the lives of normal British citizens and not protesting outside the Chinese Embassy.

          The eco-alarmist ( and it might have been the notorious George Monbiot) replied ” we can’t do everything”. The meaning seems to be that their priority is ruining our lives because that’s more important in the scheme of things than protesting about a country that not only is not reducing this carbon pollution thingy they’re so obsessed with, but China is building plants that will add to this carbon thingy that’s so bad it makes children spontaneously burst into tears and throw tantrums.

    Will Continuity Remain find a ‘deal’ , aka surrender document, that allows the establishment to claim that we have left the EU and hence there is no basis for the UK to participate in the European elections next Month. I’m sure that the Tories are keen to avoid the humiliation of coming a distant third. Labour would be able to dictate the terms of surrender so they will be for it. The EU would be delighted to avoid thirty plus eurosceptics from the UK being elected and we know that Mrs May does what Brussels tells her to do , no matter what the cost to her party and the country is.
    However, the fall out from such cynical manoeuvres will add even more determination to UKIP and TBP to overthrow the present two party system. The establishment are playing with fire whilst sloshing petrol around. It will take a lot more than 24/7 BBC propaganda to get this genie back in the bottle.

        Mayor Khan fought tooth and nail to allow the black separatist and Hitler lover, Louis Farrakhan into our country. He thinks terrorism in a city like London is an occupational hazard. And despite his blather about gender equality he attends a mosque where men and women are separated.
        And then you’ll have the mob that like to attend such events. It will pretty much the same folk who’ve been holding up London for the past fortnight that will be protesting about Trump’s visit. Somehow theses aged and privileged adolescents seem to have an astonishing amount of time on their hands.
        I’ve got a question…
        Do any of these parasites actually work?”

        Once again; speaking with a “forked-tongue” seems to be an art by our very anti-British MPS and self righteous Mayors/MSM ferals.

    So, ( see, I’m using the new word that starts each sentence) Dancing Terry is going to attend the funeral of the journalist who was killed by the IRA; sorry, the New IRA, not to be confused with New Labour; and won’t therefore be at Prime Minister’s questions; loosely based on I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue.

    Thoughts:
    How convenient
    Why can’t the Northern Ireland Secretary attend or does Dancing Terry attend all funerals these days?
    Is she going to attend the funerals of all the Christians who were murdered by muslims in Sri Lanka?
    Does she have a funeral dance prepared for such occasions?

        Jim,

        Sky News have had live coverage of Ms McKees funeral, a funeral attended by our Prime Minister, the leader of the Opposition, the Irish Prime Minister and the Irish President, as well as numerous other high profile British and Irish politicians.

        Why? Because she was gay, because she was a journalist or because her murder is an example of the “return to violence caused by Brexit”? Or is it because the disingenuous Irish jumped at the chance to attend, using it as a way of gaining influence and kudos through empathy and faux sympathy and so forced the hand of the Westminster charlatans?

        A terrible loss to her family in particular, and also it would seem to the communities that she identified with, but the opportunistic hypocrisy of the politicians attending stinks to high heaven and the media coverage is ridiculous and is, in a journalistic manner that is now the norm, obscenely disproportionate.

          Stew,

          My advice for her parents is avoid any invites from the Pope:

          Pope Pius IX sent the Golden Rose (“blessings”) to the King of the Two Sicilies, and in less than a year, he lost his crown and kingdom.

          The same Pope sent his blessings to the Austrian Kaiser, and in less
          than a year, he lost Venetia and suffered defeat at Sadowa.

          The same Pope sent the Golden Rose (“blessings”) to Queen Isabella of Spain, and in a short time, she lost her crown and died in
          exile.

          He sent his Golden Rose (“blessings”) to the Empress Eugenie of France, and in less than a year, the Emperor and Empress lost their crowns, and both died later in exile, and their only son was killed by Zulus in Africa.

          The Crown Princess of Brazil was blessed by the Pope, with the result that her baby was born deformed, and she died in exile.

          The Pope blessed the Emperor of Mexico, Maximilian. He was dethroned and killed by his people.

          The Pope blessed the Emperor’s widow. She became a hopeless maniac and died in exile.

          The Pope blessed a steamer filled with nuns enroute to South America in 1870. It never reached its destination, every soul perishing.

          The Pope blessed General Boulanger and in less than two weeks he was in exile, later committing suicide.

          Mrs. Sherman, wife of the American General Sherman, received the Golden Rose (“blessing” from the Pope). It proved fatal, and she died soon after”.

          Just goes to show that advice from one’s parents is usually wise advice but disagreeing with mom and pop this time should be encouraged especially if your parents have their sights on Malibu beach and the hills above malibu.

Lots of them are Professors advising the GWPF. I am still convinced that the 18 Professors on the GWPF Academic Advisory Council would win in a debate with that small child that is being used as the Chief Scientific Advisor of Extinction Rebellion.

    #GreenSupremacism PR is about spinning headlines about failed Electric-car projects to make them sound successful
    Rise in electric community car schemes in Wales
    \\ If you just read the headline and the introductory paragraphs, you might think this is a story about the success and growth of electric car schemes in Wales, but think again. Read on, and you find things like:

    Supporters say they can make it easier for people in rural areas to get to job interviews, hospital appointments, or just to do the shopping.
    But at least one scheme in Wales has been wound up

    And:

    The rural development agency Arloesi Gwynedd Wledig has just ordered two electric cars, and is looking for villages and towns that would like to run a community electric car sharing scheme.
    Project Officer Carwyn ap Myrddin said:
    “The aim is to have a car located in a convenient location in a village or town to help people who are isolated and who haven’t got good access to public transport.”
    “Transport is an issue. There have been cutbacks.
    This is a pilot project to see if an electric car sharing scheme is an answer.
    It will need a strong group of local volunteers to get best use of the car, particularly as they could also act as drivers for those who need transport but can’t drive.”

    The first community electric car sharing scheme in Wales was in Cilgwyn near Newport, Pembrokeshire in 2013. It was closely followed by a scheme in the city of St Davids.

    But Andy Dixon, who helped run the St Davids scheme, said it was wound up after a year.
    “In some ways, we were too rural for it to work properly.
    We had people from outlying areas driving into St Davids in their own cars to pick up the electric one.
    “The insurance also meant that people under 25 weren’t able to drive it. But they were the group of people who had the most need for a shared car.”

    So the title “Rise in electric community car schemes in Wales”.
    … is FakeNews
    It’s just another PR piece from the BBC. //

    Here is some terrible journalism by the BBC attacking a Tory MP who has by some very tenuous connection been attached to a failed investment operation.

    Here is the story as I understand it.

    Johnny Mercer Tory MP for Plymouth Moor View a former army officer works for a charity called Crucial Academy, which trains military veterans and aims to find them employment. He puts in a minimum of 20 hours a month for a salary of £85K (A little on the high side perhaps but this is a charity and no one complained about the Labourites at Oxfam getting high 6 figure salaries).

    The charity is funded by a company called Surge Financial Limited which marketed along presumably with other financial instruments bonds by a seperate company London Capital and Finance (LCF), which is now in administration.

    So, because Mercer works for a charity which is funded by a company which sold the products of yet another company which has gone bust, the BBC are calling for Mr Mercer to resign !

    It really is unbelievable that the BBC should expect anyone so far removed from the company which went bust to have any responsibility for that, I cannot imagine any point when had this been a Labour MP the BBC would have put such a biased piece on its web page.

    Read it yourself and reach your own conclusion.

      Mr Mercer shouldn’t be taking £85k from a charity . Easy enough to get another politician .

      As an aside – PMQ /lies – a fast forward job and best watched on tV as after a nice week off the politicians on all side have faces which look like they waiting for political execution ….

      And maybe not many were successful at lining up another job for the time when the government falls ….

      Interesting too – the chamber was half empty /full. If politicians have given up with this meaningless weekly ritual why should ordinary voters have any regard to what do or say .

    Had we a Woodward, a Bernstein and a ‘Deep Throat’ who had exposed the political and media covert operation to subvert democracy, block Brexit, push agendas and conduct a campaign of ever so subtle mind tricks then that would be bad enough.
    But no, it’s not covert and it’s not vaguely subtle and that’s what I find so insulting.

        There’s the brilliant Julia Hartly Brewer and Rod Liddle, but yes, they’re pretty thin on the ground.
        Oh, while I think of it, there’s a cracking interview with JHB and James Delingpole on the Delingpole podcast.
        I think it’s available on You tube.
        Worth a listen!

    I spent some time in Indonesia with my employment.
    “All this seems to reflect the growing religiosity of Indonesian politics and society. This is indeed reflected in conservative dress codes for women, the appearance of huge Saudi-financed and styled mosques in villages, the inflammatory statements of extremist organizations (such as the Islamic Defenders Front) which challenge the secular basis of society and the adoption of Islamic laws by some local governments.
    https://www.theglobalist.com/indonesia-elections-joko-widodo-islam-democracy/
    It is information such as this which is freely available on the internet that keeps one abreast of what’s going on in the World, by-passing our own distorted MSM and, our, “Worlds Most Trusted”.
    One things for sure, the extracted excerpt above could apply to any number of countries who were once moderately islam, like Indonesia.
    Further evidence if that were required that the deep pocket of the Middle East, particularly Saudi Arabia, is focussed on islamification of the World. Pity the Cultural Marxists don’t see this about their islamic bedfellows who they view as supportive of their own cause only. I won’t be around to eventually see the monumental battle between the two but I would already put my bets on the eventual winner. Allahu Ackbar!…………..

      That such things are deemed of no concern by the BBC’s finest is… unsurprising.

        Thanks for that insight.

        I also learnt that Benn has re-named Easter as ‘Zombie Jesus Chocolate Day’.

        I wonder what he is going to call 6 May 2019 or will he exclude the Muslims from suffering his wit?

        And for MPs conviction should mean disqualification from office . They are meant to be law makers not law breakers ( second time I’ve said it ).

    NOT the Beeb:

    “THE SUN SAYS
    If virtue-signalling gnome John Bercow still insists on insulting the US by snubbing Trump then he must finally be ousted.

    America is our No1 friend and ally – if Brexit ever happens, that relationship will grow even stronger.

    Honour the US –
    IT is horrifying that apparently serious politicians are now demanding the US ­president be refused a state visit.
    We expect it from idiot Corbynistas. They somehow justify a “protest” against Donald Trump despite belonging to a party so racist towards Jews it faces formal investigation by the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

    But if Corbyn was ever elected, Emily Thornberry would be Foreign Secretary. And she too claims it “beggars belief” Trump will get a full state visit in June.
    Labour afforded Vladimir Putin the same honour, naturally. Likewise the human rights tramplers of China and Saudi Arabia and a corrupt South ­African president once tried for rape.

    America is our No1 friend and ally. We won two world wars together. If Brexit ever happens, that relationship will grow even stronger. But if Labour’s US-hating Marxists take power it will be wilfully destroyed.
    Neither must happen. And if the ­verbose, virtue-signalling gnome John Bercow still insists on insulting the US by snubbing Trump he must be finally ousted.
    Commons Speaker he may, sadly, still be. But he does not speak for Britain.”

    I wondered why the BBC was slow to name one of the Sri Lankan mass killers – one Abdul Mohamed – which doesn’t sound like a Buddhist – you know – like the Buddhists the BBC pointed the finger of guilt at on Easter Sunday …

    But took 2 days to mention Islamic mass murder ….

    Not much sign of the ‘love in ‘ which was the NZ killings – despite 350 Christians now dead against 73 muzzies . Do the math…

    Re. The Sun Says
    Puzzling what can be in the minds of some of them? We can exclude the usual suspects – the loons, goons and buffoons – but as for the politicians who supposedly have the UK’s best interests at heart and should put themselves above it all ?
    Are they so weak and caught in the bubble that they just can’t think of the national interest.

      In the future, which type of Politician to vote for:

      (1) Those with Self Interest at heart: A career that starts with a job with a quango, moves to a job in the European Union and then on to the House of Lords, or (2) Those with the National Interest at heart: A politician who wants to restore democracy and save the taxpayer money by abolishing quangos, leave the European Union and then abolish the House of Lords.

      (A) Labour Party: In the past it was (2) now even the leader is (1)
      (B) Tory Party: In the past it was (1) now its still mostly (1)
      (C) LibDems: Its always been (1) now its extremely selfishly (1)
      (D) Brexit Party: Its always (2) now it’s also the Tory and Labour (2)

    More clampdowns on the horizon for social media as Macron and the NZ Prime Minister (Peace Be Upon Her) will meet tech leaders in a bid to remove online extreme content.

    They will be asked to pledge their support in Paris next month, at something called the “Christchurch Call”. Not to be confused with the “Sri Lanka Call” which won’t ever happen. And not to be confused with the non-denominational thing in Paris that caught fire that some people say was a church of Christ, but was merely a big, old building.

    It takes place alongside something else called “Tech for Humanity”… which once upon a time would have conjured up images of ergonomic mice and better car seats but these days sounds unavoidably sinister.

    Is it just me or is R4 going just a little over the top about the wicked murder of that irish journalist lyra Mcee. The BBC which is normally so ambivalent about crimes committed by “Derries finest” now whipping itself up into a frenzy and almost going the full Jo Cox whilst 300 murdered Christians murdered by Muslim killers can now be squeezed back down the memory hole where they obviously belong.

    I wonder also, whether it has just occurred to these pampered “journalists” that just maybe, they are playing with fire themselves, maybe just a little too much. Lets hope so it would be good to think that these cowardly, liars (who normally think nothing about downplaying terrorist crimes if committed by the “right” victim group) may just be getting a little “ring twitter” themselves and just because you support momentum does not mean that you may not come to grisly end yourself.

    Stand by for days of this, or at least until Aunty has decided we have all forgotten about Sri Lanka and the church bombings by “men”
