    Pre election polling for East Germany AfD 23% , Merkels CD 22%
    AfD set to be biggest party in East Germany
    Alternative for Germany has emerged as the most popular party in the east of the country, overtaking Angela Merkel’s conservatives before finely balanced elections
    In news stories AfD is preceded by two words
    guess which.

      Just edging toward, ‘real’ Thought Police. Soon they’ll track your thoughts and that would really amount to solving thought crimes. Just think: ‘that expression shows us that you were having a thought crime and we are arresting you to take you for analysis. We’ll get the truth out of you one way or another’. Josef Mengele –

    Clive Myrie tells us on the BBC 6PM news that what the bastard
    Islamic terrorist murderers did was a perversion of Islam.
    No it’s not! The Koran tells it’s followers to kill Infidels . The
    perversion is the way that the BBC presents the news. We see
    a picture of a Sri Lankan Muslim little boy with a copy of the
    Koran in front of him. The editors of the news make sure that
    Muslim’s showing their respects are at the forefront of any
    film release. The problem is not the 85% of law abiding Muslims.
    It’s the 15% who to one degree or another follow the decrees of
    the Koran to the letter. And the 15% don’t believe they are
    perverted in any way. As many as 5% consider that they are at
    war with Western religions and culture. We need to take them
    seriously, once and for all.

      I’m sick to death of all things islam but what really gets my goat is the MSM’s insistence on using the term ‘ radical islam’.

      If these swamp rats insist on having an adjective before this noun, then the correct one should be ‘pure’. Pure islam.

      Fos,

      You correctly state: “No it’s not! The Koran tells it’s followers to kill Infidels”

      To prove your great point, we find the following death camp orders from Islam:

      “the devout Muslim must kill for the faith, just as Muhammad did:

      “Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them.” Koran 2:191

      “Muslims must not take the infidels as friends.” 3:28

      “Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.” 3:85

      “Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam” 5:33

      Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.” 8:12

      “Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels.” 8:60

      “The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them.” 8:65

      “When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.” 9:5

      “The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque.” 9:28

      “Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.” 9:29

      “The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them.” 9:30

      “Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood.” 9:123

      “Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies.” 22:19

      “Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them.” 47:4

      BBC Clive – this is true Islam, not some sentimental stuff muslims try to hoodwink the public with. Good grief!

    In a bid to avoid costly litigation, Natural England have caved in to demands from Wild Justice, led by Chris Packham, to revoke the General Licences issued each year to permit the control of pigeons and corvids.
    Without the ability to control the huge numbers of woodpigeons which do enormous damage to crops throughout the UK, and as a direct consequence, rapeseed oil, bread and many brassicas and other vegetables may well cost more while increasing numbers of song birds lose their eggs and hatchlings.
    Farmers are unhappy but what do they know? Chris is a hero, right? Greta would agree.

      Burma dodged a “mass extinction of Buddhists” bullet. But they know Islam regards Buddhists as the lowest of the low, as they are atheists. No luxury of jizya for them.

      Islam ranking
      1,. Muslims Sunni/shia
      2. Female Muslims
      3. Jews
      4. Christians -they believe in God but have split the unity of God
      5. Hindus – polytheists, deserving death
      6. Buddhists – essentially atheists, deserving immediate death. No choice of jizya for them.
      7. Communists, marxists, leftys, etc same #6.

      Burmese know where they are in the pecking order. Afghanistan was a lesson they are not going to forget.

    More and more these days I find myself watching Agatha Christie’s Poirot on ITV3, simply because it’s the only non-politically correct show on television a lot of the time.

    Having said that, that only applies to the first few series of Poirot. The ones filmed over the last few years have had an element of political correctness shoehorned into them, for example Murder In Mesopotamia, which had a story about a child being beaten by a cruel nurse inserted into it, which wasn’t in the original novel.

      I see it like this:

      I would rather have a john wayne type of a guy PM/President to protect and make decisions for my family/country – even though he may speak coarser and with far fewer pretty words as traitor May or Blair does – but we know that they DO KNOW by now that they have not only cut their own throats but have completely ruined any hope of a tory/labour government for the next 20 years or more (of course appeasers like Ken – the orator- clarke – will no longer be sat in that favourite seat next GE) even though he will continue spouting off his now fading “repeats” of: oh, our nation will be annihilated if we leave the EU.

      Typical scare tactics, along with his usual hysteria.

      Give me the John Wayne type of PM/ President before the effeminate, false, fake, self righteous, kind of english man or woman who is only in it to do themselves and their highly educated chumps favours-a-plenty in order to retire with heaps in their bank accounts yet have not one bit of conscience in their hearts.

    Not on the BBC because of pro-Islamic bias.

    Police have confirmed that a fire in the French church of Notre-Dame de Grace on Easter Sunday appears to have been intentionally set, making it the latest in a string of arson attacks on Christian churches in the country this year, although Notre Dame Paris was instantly declared officially, defiantly and certainly not an arson attack, with the Mainstream media actively shutting down anyone who dared even suggesting that arson should be looked into. The fire in this second Notre Dame was started in a large, wooden confessional around 4:30pm and proceeded to consume a dais in the presbytery of the eighteenth-century church located in the southern French town of Eyguières, near Provence.

    Some Islamic looking racial types find it rather funny. (see below)

    Meanwhile, I had to check this but its true. Macron says Notre Dame should be rebuilt consistent with the modern, diverse France, with architects suggesting the inclusion of a minaret.

    “Huawei row: UK to let Chinese firm help build 5G network”:

    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-48032286

    I have worked in automotive hardware and software an i can say with confidence that it is so easy to build an undetectable back door into a microprocessor hardware, firmware or software that its ridiculous.

    As and example for the layperson: Every month a new unintentional vulnerabilities are found in Microsoft Windows that can give access to hackers (that Microsoft updates).

    Windows has 20 years of improvements, and is probably the most heavily tested pieces of software in the world. So one can imagine that to insert intentional back-doors would be a piece of cake.

    Why do our thick-as-fuck retards in government think that they can stop the Chinese from hiding backdoors in the software, firmware, or hardware if they wanted to?

    And why don’t the deranged BBC (who no doubt think it would be racist to suggest China might spy on us) do some freaking journalism, and get an expert to explain this in their article???

    These people just think they now better, whether it’s this or Brexit, teaching kids about gay sex, or insisting that Islam is a religion of peace … when in fact they know nothing.

    This shower of imbeciles is what you get when select leaders based on identity quotas, number of vaginas, and ethnic origin. Stunningly incompetent.

      The number of confirmed dead in the Easter Sunday attacks has risen to 359
      It is believed that there were nine suicide bombers, eight have been identified

      Yesterday it emerged that Mohamed – one of nine members of an ISIS death squad that killed 359 people and injured more than 500 on Easter Sunday – is believed to have studied in the southeast of England at some point between 2006 and 2007.

        The revelation that one of the terrorists had studied in Britain sparked fears that he could have been radicalised at a university here.

        British investigators are now scrambling to retrace his steps and officers from Scotland Yard, MI5 and MI6, the FBI and other Western intelligence agencies have all flown out to Sri Lanka to investigate fears of a resurgent global terror network.

        Security expert Professor Anthony Glees has described 2006-7 as the ‘heyday of Islamist activity on British campuses’ – particularly in London and the Southeast.

        Professor Glees, who has written a book on the subject titled When Students Turn to Terror: Terrorist and Extremist Activity on British Campuses, says a high proportion of British Islamist terrorists both convicted or killed in the course of their attacks came from higher education backgrounds.

        He said that the disproportionately high number of Islamists who went to university points to the fact that they are interested in ideas and studying, and have middle-class aspirations. This is far more true of Britain than other European countries.

        For example, Mohammed Emwazi – or ‘Jihadhi John’ – a well-known ISIS executioner from London, studied at the University of Westminster in 2006.

        Earlier this month an ISIS fighter told the BBC at least seven students and ex-students from University of Westminster joined the terror group.

    BBC tumbleweed again so interested in wimmins rights how did they miss this ????

    Last week demonstrators surrounded the Iranian Embassy in London with a giant white veil this week in protest against the country’s incarceration of women who break strict hijab laws.

    Nasrin Sotoudeh was sentenced last month to 38 years in jail and 148 lashes for representing women’s rights and defending a number of female protesters jailed in the strict Muslim country for standing against the compulsory hijab (veiling) law.

    Her sentence was passed on March 11 this year while she was in prison, without a trial having taken place – and just one day later, the United Nations announced Iran will get a seat on the UN women’s rights committee – a decision that sparked a raft of damning complaints over the country’s violations of women’s rights.

    What happened in 1988?

    Starting on July 19, 1988 and lasting for approximately five months, the 1988 executions was a series of state-sponsored killings of political prisoners across Iran – which have now been described as a political purge without precedent.

    Amnesty International recorded the names of over 4,482 disappeared prisoners during this time, but other estimates suggest at least 30,000 prisoners may have perished in one of the biggest covers up of all time.

    Before the executions, Iranian leader Ruhollah Khomeini issued “a secret but extraordinary order – some suspect a formal fatwa”, according to Ervand Abrahamian, author of Tortured Confessions.

    The order supposedly set up “Special Commissions with instructions to execute members of People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran as moharebs (those who war against Allah) and leftists as mortads (apostates from Islam).”

    A leaked audio tape, which surfaced in 2016, purportedly highlighted Ebrahim Raisi’s role in the 1988 executions of thousands of political prisoners.

    In the recording, Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, the deputy supreme leader at the time, is heard chastising four officials in charge of the systematic executions, which remain one of Iran’s biggest mysteries following the government attempts to block any investigation into the deaths.

    He is heard saying the executions included “pregnant women and 15-year-old girls”, and were the “biggest crimes committed by the Islamic Republic” .

    I don’t believe that the BBC should be subscribed as a terrorist
    organization. Ok maybe some of the hierarchy and editorial
    staff may have anarchist or Trotskyist tendencies. It could be
    that the Diversity , Positive discrimination and Inclusivity
    departments, have complete control on the output of the BBC.
    But this in itself does not make the BBC a terrorist organization.
    Even if day after day the London Prgramme slags off the
    Metropolitan Police and blame them for knife crime or blame the
    Toreeeeeeeees or the BOSSES of Transport for London or the
    National Health for everything that is wrong with the capitol, this does not make them a terrorist organization.
    So the last comment we are likely to see on the Sri Lankan
    collateral damage on the BBC was Clive Myrie telling us on the 10 PM news
    was that it was perpetuated by a perverse form of Islam.
    Maybe it was a perverse form of Jainism. Because there was
    nothing perverse about it so far as teachings of Koran are
    concerned.
    Friend’s tell me that I don’t the full meaning of anachronism.
    I often say that that I am a Jewish atheist which is an anachronism?
    Islam the religion of peace , a better one? Maybe the BBC is
    a terrorist organization is an even better one. Or is it?

    Sure enough, as fast as decency allows Sri Lanka has slipped off the Home page and is rapidly disappearing altogether. The one remaining article tries to blame the Sri Lankan government for a ‘major security lapse’, conveniently diverting attention from the real culprits. And no weeping, hugging Jacinda; no detailed bios and eulogies of all the victims as in Christchurch; no demands that ‘this must never happen again’; no global call to identify and extirpate the evil ideology behind the attack once and for all.

    Once again al-beeb is left baffled that members of a faith whose scriptures command them to kill Christians, Jews and unbelievers, should go and kill Christians, Jews and unbelievers.

    If you need proof that what started some years back as the respectable(ish) pseudo-scientific ‘Theory of Manmade Global Warming”, has fully transitioned into a hysterical (and I don’t mean amusing), apocalyptic, doomsday cult, you need look no further than St Greta the Green (the 21st Century’s own Jean of Arc), and her ‘Children’s Crusade’ AKA ‘Extinction Rebellion’.

    Converts to the cult seem to include most (all?) of our leading politicians, many allegedly converted after listening to the charismatic, crazed old prophet, the Venerable Father Attenborough himself, and the high pulpit for his preaching and the spreading of the gospel? Why, the good old BBC of course.

        Not BBC bias, mere BBC incompetence, short term memory loss and the inability to join up the dots: TOADY Watch #1.

        ‘A group’ wishes to protect crows because ‘another group’ has said there are too many crows in parts of the UK and they are having a damaging effect. For example, they kill other birds and particularly curlews. (IIRC, crows scavenge and kill on the ground and curlews are ground breeding & nesting birds.)

        Only last week on the TOADY Programme a spokesperson for a wildlife group was bemoaning the fact that curlews are under threat and their population was drastically reducing, in Ireland for example – it was claimed – by 99%.

        Oooops!

          The group is ‘Wild Justice’ fronted by the remarkable Chris Packham – nature’s answer to Bono. They have managed to get the General Licences – issued annually since the Wildlife & Countryside Act of 1988 – cancelled. These licenses exempted woodpigeons and most members of the corvid family from the blanket protection provided by the act for all wild birds. Such species were defined as agricultural pests allowing their numbers to be controlled, usually by shooting.
          By giving them protection crop damage throughout the UK will increase exponentially (predominantly rapeseed, cereals and brassicas) while nesting songbirds and all other vulnerable species will suffer major losses of eggs, hatchlings and chicks.
          With ground-nesting birds, like curlews and many others, already under attack from increased fox and badger predation, by protecting crows, magpies, jays, rooks and jackdaws the losses will also be enormous. Quite how the RSPB will equate this with Packham’s star status is a little conundrum for them to solve.

            Maybe we need to lock Wild Justice, the UN’s IPCC and various Vegan groups in a room for twenty-four or forty-eight hours with limited food and water and find out who survives at the end of the period.

            No doubt, on a TOADY Programme at the weekend or Monday, the Brassica Protection & Promotion Society (informally known as the Cabbage Heads or Sprouters) will asking for protection and special status for their beloved products. Once again, a Beeboid TOADY presenter, without the benefit of the brains of a cabbage will, no doubt, fail to join the dots . . ….

    Marine Le Pen ‘goes green‘.

    For her part, Le Pen has sought to anchor her new vision in the idea that the individual is “not simply a consumer or producer” but “someone rooted, someone who wants to live on their land and to pass it on to their children”. Extrapolating from this axiom, she argued that someone “who is rooted in their home is an ecologist”, whereas those who are “nomadic […] do not care about the environment; they have no homeland”.

    It is difficult to understand how all those politicians and activists that flit from international conference to conference and immigrants and their families that fly back and forth for reunions are going to ‘save the planet’.

    I bet immigrants from warmer countries have their house thermostats set the wrong side of 20 celsius. Continual car washing seems to be a hobby of theirs too.

    The the Khmer Rouge established the state of Democratic Kampuchea. The party’s aim was to establish a classless communist state based on a rural agrarian economy and a complete rejection of the free market and capitalism.3

    2019 Greta Thunberg…… Communist peasant farming society..
    The system that needs to be changed to avert climate disaster is capitalism, which is losing its legitimacy largely due to the system’s failure to respond effectively to climate change.
    Applying all I’ve learned about how systems change, it’s possible to imagine that the current system which sustains business-as-usual capitalism – horizon one in the framework – is occupied by those who continue to produce, sell and consume products and services that rely on fossil fuels. That’s most of us, but horizon one is also maintained by climate deniers and investors in fossil energy, who, despite the scientific evidence, keep chugging along.
    A more sustainable system could include policies we might currently consider “extreme”, like universal basic income. This is a guaranteed payment for all people regardless of their wealth which could help break the cycle of production and consumption that pollutes the atmosphere and fills the ocean with discarded plastic. Evidence suggests there is growing support for this, particularly among young people..
