    “Brits back UN, WTO, Commonwealth and NATO more than EU, survey finds”.
    What!!? Brits love the UN Migration Compact? Somethings wrong with that survey. Highly suspicious.
    Don’t stop there G :
    “Head of MI5: Islamist terrorism ‘most acute’ threat to UK”
    What!!? I thought that ‘Right Wing Extremists’ filled that role?
    More BS?

      They wouldn’t if the corrupt media had told them about it, but with the BBC and the others deliberately keeping things like that as quiet as they can the people are in blissful ignorance.

        That’s another destructive policy that the snake Dancing Terry signed us up to without our agreement.

        It won’t be too long before we are being told that we can’t stop importing invaders because of our international obligations.

        So it’s 600,000 invaders a year for the foreseeable future or until we Whites are a minority in our own country or we’ve been extirpated from the earth. As Jack Straw observed, the White race doesn’t deserve to exist. Now I wonder if he includes himself in that statement? I suspect not.

    Man jailed for part in plot to import senile American and dump him on NHS.
    \\ It took months to establish that Roger Curry, 78, had been a victim of “granny dumping”,
    a phenomenon seen in the United States in which elderly people are abandoned by relatives so that they can receive free healthcare //

    \\ On November 23 Kevin Curry and his mother flew to Denmark without his father, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s and a disorder on the autism spectrum.
    Mr Davis said: “Hayes The defendant was part of a plan to bring Roger from the US and dump him in Hereford, abandoning him so he could receive care from local healthcare providers. It was clearly planned.”

    Hayes took the guy to hospital, and avoided giving his name by claiming to be with the SAS.
    He was only caught cos more than 6 months later Hayes, for unknown reasons, called West Mercia police and identified himself as the man who had handed the victim to nurses… but tripped up on his own lies.

    It looks like we’ve lost another word.

    On politics live I think the token leaver might have come out with it.

    Compromise.

    When we voted leave (out of SM, CU, ECJ, no ifs no buts…out) it appears that there have been a whole lot of ‘compromises’ made.
    £39 billion for instance.

    Every movement euphemistically called a compromise has been in one direction only.
    It now looks (Telegraph) that a Customs Union will be compromised into the deal (which is also a compromise which wasn’t voted for), this, to avoid European elections which will be bad for liblabcon.
    In the interest of their Party and not for the benefit of the Country.

    Starting at where we voted out, has ANY ‘compromise’ at all been in the leave direction.

    By the way,
    I suggest any UKIP or Brexit Party people who are going to appear on politics live should get a Rabies jab beforehand.
    Not necessary for liblabcon of course.

    Looks like May and Corbyn have a deal and the BBC are ready to praise it.
    Its just a question of words, says Treezer.

    ‘She signalled she hoped to get Labour backing for any new customs proposal before putting it to Parliament again.
    She said their aims were “very similar” and “sometimes people use different terms to mean the same thing”.’

    Yeah, like betrayal means the same thing as sell out, or a pack of lies means the same thing as deceit.

    Another window into luvvieland today on R5 Live as Nihal Arthanayake gushed all over hip-hop artist Coyle Larner (described by NME as “sensitive and eloquent.”)

    Nihal adopts his usual stance of compassionate faux-intellectual chum as Larner ticks all the boxes: how men should talk about their feelings, being mixed race, his ADHD, treating women with respect, and how men should talk about their feelings.

    Regrets? Unfortunately first up is one that’s unmentionable on air — because it would ‘definitely land him in prison’. Quickly then on to a bland, family-friendly anecdote instead. Much chuckling and mutual back-patting ensues as Nihal sidesteps yet another potential dent to the BBC’s ‘more than equal’ narrative.

      There will be no Macpherson report. Instead grime ‘artists’ like Stormzy will be worshipped by the BBC because ‘minorities goooooood.’ The polar opposite of moral outrage – the type they excel at when it comes to a ‘racist’ tweet. Alas here we are talking about dead bodies rather than feigned hurt feelings yet the BBC could not care less.

    I see that “a man” was arrested in East Belfast on Tuesday and has been charged with Domestic Servitude offences, which surely is simply another name for modern slavery, the first time ever that anyone has been charged with this crime in Northern Ireland.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-48110095

    Although last year there were 59 potential victims of human trafficking identified, again an issue that was until fairly recently unheard of, as were the high levels of prostitution and cannabis farming that these victims are involved in, it seems that this young woman was kept as a domestic servant. She came from Scotland apparently but hasn’t been identified, though something tells me her surname won’t begin with Mac.

    Today they were able to identify the 33 year-old “man” however and it seems he isn’t actually a Belfast native. NI maybe, but Nigeria in this instance, not Northern Ireland.

He was able to do square roots and other calculations and answer questions on a number of topics by tapping his hoof, revealing he had mathematical abilities and interests not normally found among the more mundane of his species.
        The truth was of course was that he was responding to signals from the people around him but a lot of people were convinced it was for real. They wanted to believe so much.

    The Great Leap Forward (Chinese: 大跃进; pinyin: Dà Yuèjìn) of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) was an economic and social campaign by the Communist Party of China (CPC) from 1958 to 1962. The campaign was led by Chairman Mao Zedong and aimed to rapidly transform the country from an agrarian economy into a socialist society through rapid industrialization and collectivization.

    These policies led to social and economic disaster, but these failures were hidden by widespread exaggeration and deceitful reports.

    In short order, large resources were diverted to use on expensive new industrial operations, which, in turn, failed to produce much, and deprived the agricultural sector of urgently needed resources. An important result was a drastic decline in food output, which caused millions and millions of deaths in the Great Chinese Famine.

        Fed, sorry to hear you have an interest in this inquiry. But my comment was about presentation at the press conferences rather than the facts of the case. I believe someone is giving instructions for the supporting hands at the press conference and fear it is being overused. Soon every upset person on BBC news will have the ‘hand’ in the picture. I think we have enough emotion in the news with Fergal Keene, Mark Easton and Orla Guerin. I prefer facts rather than emotion or propaganda for my news.

          Debs,

          I agree with you, far more feelings than fact in journalism as a whole now, especially the bBC, it both causes and reflects the increased feminization and weakened my of our society.

          Remember the televised initial stages of the Grenfell Inquiry when each resident giving their testimony seemed to have at least one support worker/ liaison officer holding their hand as part of their legal team? Perhaps it’s common practice now.

        Aunty not really interested in hemophiliacs or those accidentally infected by the medical authorities (unless they could blame it somehow on the “far right”). Over the years I have heard quite a lot on R4 about how HIV affected the “gay” community but not a lot about the poor bloody hemophiliacs.
        Everyone one knows the only true “victims” whos story needs to be heard is the gay community. Fortunately now the NHS has pulled out all the stops to ensure that homosexuals can be supplied with expensive drugs so that the “”gay” community can continue with unprotected buggery whilst some poor bloody pensioner who worked all their life still waits for a hip or heart op.

    Just some facts on the ousting of the horrible criminal Fiona Onasanye which the media don’t seem to have been bothering to check, or number crunch.

    This is the bit they are telling 10% of the electoral roll was needed for a recall or 7000 signatures, meaning there are roughly 70000 voters registered.
    19,261 signatures were made to oust her.

    Here’s the figures the MSM aren’t bothering with:
    This means that the bar was passed nearly three times over or that 30% of the registered electorate voted to remove her.
    It’s a pretty meaningless figure though because 100% of the electorate never bother to vote. Turn out at the last election was 67.5%, quite high, but that means that 47250 (roughly) turned out to vote so using that as a baseline nearly 41% of those who voted at the last election signed that petition.

    Seeing as signing a petition is not as big a deal as casting a vote, the people of Peterborough must have really hated her, but it does beg the question as to why they voted for her in the first place.

    At the previous election UKIP had taken nearly 8000 votes and it seems that when they didn’t field a candidate in 2015 the vote split, but more went to Labour than Tory.

    I wonder if OFCOM have even figured out how to open their office door yet?
    Moreover, do they understand the word, ‘regulator’ ?
    reg·u·la·tor
    noun
    a person or thing that regulates something.
    a person or body that supervises a particular industry or business activity.
    eg: “regulators of privatized utilities”

    Ahh, a walk down memory lane from 2017:-
    “The BBC will face sanctions and fines from its new regulator unless it ends its Brexit bias, a former Culture Secretary and architect of the Royal Charter has warned.

    John Whittingdale, a Conservative MP, said that he is concerned that the corporation is “constantly looking for negatives and highlighting the challenges” of Brexit.

    He warned that if the corporation’s negative coverage persists MPs could “escalate” their complaints to Ofcom, which takes over regulation of the BBC in a fortnight.

    The regulator has the power to impose sanctions including broadcasting corrections, banning repeats of coverage and imposing a £250,000 fine.

    Mr Whittingdale, who drew up the new Royal Charter which enshrines the corporation’s duty to be impartial, said: “My own impression is that the BBC is constantly looking for negatives and highlighting the challenges that arise from Brexit.

    That is born out by both the analysis of the proportion of coverage given to people talking about difficulties and risks compared to those presenting a more positive picture.”

      Any words from Whittingdale (who bottled the Charter Review) are completely worthless. He is just another time serving, waste of space who likes his job just a little too much and was willing to sell out any of his principles in order not too upset his career too much.
      Offcom just like the Electoral Commission are a corrupt political construct and will reflect the establishment views and biases over Brexit (ie we were all too stupid to vote the “right” way)
      It shows how how corrupt and anti democratic things have become in the UK that these institutions are utterly shameless and now dont even bother trying to look even slightly even handed.
      Just like our pro EU “parliamentarians” they are sending us all a very clear message.

    About this Gavin Williamson leak/Huawei thing..

    It strikes me that, whether he’s guilty or not, in the long term would it not be better if the Chinese actually invaded us and reminded us how to run a serious country again? As opposed to suffering under the risible joke country run by mental defectives that we have now.

    Our old communist enemies Russia and China, despite the authoritarianism, corruption and mass murders of millions in the past now seem to be a better bet.

    Yes they’re still not so good on the quaint old democracy and voting thing with Xi and Putin looking like they are ‘Presidents’ for life.

    But voting over here nowadays always brings in Governments that continually carry on with their own society-destroying agendas that blatantly ignore the people’s wishes.

    We could stick with the unaccountable and corrupt EU telling us what to do, aided by global social-media corporations having free rein to censor our free speech. And there’s considerable input from shady oil money to grease the wheels to ensure there’s no question of reducing immigration from the third world. This is the current situation, and though nearly all our politicians think it’s wonderful it’s not working out for most of us.

    If there’s no chance of us being ‘annexed’ by a Trump led USA, then I for one might be tempted to welcome in our East Asian and Russkie overlords.

    Undemocratic, riven with nepotism, dodgy business dealings, some may say cruel and harsh..but as far as I can tell the inhabitants of Russia and China have not gone stark staring bonkers.

    With today’s news about ‘Climate Emergency’ and multitudes of dimwits hanging on every word of that Swedish girl..I wish I could say I’m only half joking!

    ‘Universities must tackle race degree gap.’

    What a beauty!

    As always they see a pursuit where outcomes are not exactly equal among groups (as they never are in anything) and blame ‘racism.’ Of course the far higher proportion of Asians (and women) achieving degrees in medicine is not considered evidence of ‘racism’ or ‘sexism’ against white men.

    Not every group has the same attitude towards education which is what explains the gap. Apparently we need talks about other cultures and more role models (how patronising!). It is not as if we don’t talk constantly about other cultures. And if one culture is rotten (thinking it is cool to dos in education) then no amount of talking about it will help. The Chinese excel in education so why not let them advise other groups who do not do so well? The problem cannot be the system/racism when one ethnic minority outperforms every other group.

    If you offered my pal Anil a chance for a chat about ‘race and culture’ on campus he would laugh in your face and come join me down the pub. Call me ‘far right’ but I reckon it was his constant drinking which caused his underachievement at university.

    You read a degree – the idea that some ‘racist system’ causes your underachievement is nonsense. I remember a question on fault-based divorce in my finals. We all had access to the same texts and seminars; they did not say ‘no blacks are allowed to read the first chapter of the text book.’

    Giving special advantages to minorities may well be part of the problem. If you can blame the ‘system’ rather than take responsibility that must affect your attitude, which is paramount. Articles like this probably entrench the very divisions they ostensibly seek to erase.

    UK ‘can cut emissions to nearly zero’

    Could Britain practically wipe out its greenhouse gas emissions by 2050? That’s the case being put by independent advisers to government who suggest the UK should “lead the global fight” against climate change. Chris Stark, of the Committee on Climate Change, tells the BBC the idea would have been “inconceivable” a few years ago but has been made possible by a huge drop in the cost of renewable energy. You can remind yourself of the global picture, via our seven charts on climate change. And, if you struggle with any of the scientific terminology on the issue, try our translation tool.

    He is quite oblivious to the fact that vegan arable farming demands no trees and that meat from ruminants, grazers and foragers is both self-propelled (ie. no CO2 producing fossil fuel or electric vehicle required) during the production & harvesting phase and during that can live with and within a woodland environment.

            This entirely predictable aspect of enrichment is not to be broadcast , indeed it must be suppressed as it may upset the natives and push them into ‘I told you so’ mode. We used to live in a peaceful , cohesive society at ease with itself. But now that we have been enriched we see gangs of feral kids who committ murder , rape gangs, terrorism, honour crimes against women, FGM, disgusting ways of ritual slaughter of animals which we outlawed decades ago, a rise in diseases we had wiped out in the UK, effects of inbreeding, electoral malpractice, etc etc. To cap it all we have successive governments passing laws which allow you to be arrested not just for what you might say or write but for what someone else thinks you might be thinking! We have the police inteterviewing suspects ‘to check their thinking’in true Orwellian fashion. So we can see that enrichment has been a disaster for our small island but we aren’t allowed to talk about it let alone protest. Meantime the hateful BBC continues to ram. enrichment down our throats at every opportunity. I am pleased I’m past 60, god knows what the country will be like in ten, twenty or thirty years time.

    Fiona Onasanya is no longer an MP. The first criminal MP to refuse to resign – having to be turfed out by her own constituents through lack of honour and desire for her MP pay .

    She has all the qualities the BBC admires so I bet they’ll give her a job . A person so thick that she thought she could avoid prosecution and conviction in a full trial on an issue which she could easily have survived in a personal and political sense .

    The bi election will be on 6 June .
    The timing of this whole story is troubling – she was released from prison early and was the one vote in the brexit debate which allowed remain to win .

    The deselection vote was announced on the day before local elections so news reporting was limited .
    And the 6 June date will be overshadowed by the inevitable rabid reaction to the visit of the head of state of America on the 75th anniversary of D day .
