    If our country is going to get smaller ” due to climate change” , does it make sense to have high levels of immigration?

    Another question that is never asked by the BBC .

    Just as they never get down to why the two Drill ” musicians ” think it’s lack of employment for da yoof when they come out of university that causes violence .! What were these people studying at university ? Why are we importing people when we even have university graduates unemployed ( and thus stabbing people ) .?

      ‘Selectively asking questions’ is the mission statement. This morning it was flight ‘rationing’ next perhaps it will be cars or plastics (again). State Broadcaster sets out to get us to think along a clearly lit path of selected issues.

        The concept of ‘rationing’ is absolutely fundamental to all of the pseudo-environmental nonsense, whether it is flights, meat, energy, mineral rights, production of greenhouse gases and so on. Because rationing implies both scarcity, which means prices can be maximised to control demand, as well as the need for agencies to allocate or license those resources in a manner which is fair and objective (sic). To be effective, such agencies need to operate at the global level, meaning the UN as the public face, but controlled behind the scenes by a cartel of rich and powerful transnational corporations that seek to maintain monopolies and prevent the emergence of new competitors. In essence, that is what Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 are about.

            Another EU policy, never in any manifesto of any party elected to the EU parliament, or any national government of any EU country. In fact, no one even knows about it… unless you look at what is behind the massive influx of Islam into Europe.

      Jip,

      The Iconoclast has a sharp insight into BBC propaganda and he has produced a fine documentary. But he is seriously ignorant and misguided here at 13:40 minutes in:

      BBC propagandist: Germans are acutely aware of their Nazi past. And some find parallels deeply troubling.

      The iconoclast: Yeah, the Germans are all too aware of their Nazi past because they’ve been constantly beaten over the head with it for seventy f…… years. Guilt and shame, over and over again. Germany as a nation has been treated like garbage over the course of the twentieth century as well.

      In fact, West Germany became an honourable nation among the world’s nations at a speed approaching greased lightning just after the Holocaust. Having originally dismantled German heavy industry, the allies began to help rebuild Germany, with the US starting in 1947 and France and the UK following in 1950. Those senior Nazi mass murderers who were not among the few who had been executed were released from prison after serving only a few years of their ridiculously short sentences. Nazis found shelter and lived comfortable lives in countries in Africa, South America and elsewhere.

      West Germany was admitted as a UN observer nation as early as 1952, East Germany in 1972 and both countries were admitted as full UN members in 1973.

      German engineers moved to Egypt in the sixties and designed missiles to be used against Israel, obviously eager to hand the baton of the Holocaust to the Arabs.

      The Iconoclast rails against the idea of today’s Germans feeling guilt and shame? 1 500 000 children were among the 6 000 000 Jews slaughtered by the Nazi butchers and their collaborators in the Holocaust. There are Nazi butchers still living today, who never faced justice. And of course there are large numbers of their direct descendants and active neo-Nazis in Germany today.

      It would be abnormal for Germans not to feel guilt and shame over their barbaric past.

        But why should Germans feel guilt over things they had nothing to do with?, should African feel guilt because some of their ancestors were cannibals?… Should Muslims feel guilty for thinking Muhammad is the ideal role model for all time even though me murdered 700 prisoners at Khybar and married a six year old child?

        Should all British people feel superior because Alexander Fleming and Edward Jenner invested antibiotics and vaccines which combined with the British Industrial revolution has led to the world population increasing from 700 million to 7 Billion over 300 years? Should they all thank the British for being the first empire in history to end slavery?

        Should 90% of the world population who are alive thanks to the British pay royalties to the UK for the historical net-brought by the British, even though people alive today did not do these things?

          “why should Germans feel guilt” why should today’s Germans feel guilt over WW2 any more than Italians or Scandinavians over their conquests of Britain? When should guilt be switched off – with the third or thirtieth generation? Who decides?

          It seems to me that guilt is apportioned according to political allegiance and opportunism.

        Perhaps the speed of Germany’s acceptance after WW2 had something to do with the savage and spiteful way in which they were treated after WW1, most especially under the terms of the Treaty of Versailles – a largely French-inspired vindictive humiliation which had a direct influence on Hitler’s rise to power.

          Beltane,

          That’s interesting but I imagine the speed of acceptance had more to do with necessity: the allies felt they had to build Germany up against the Russian threat.

          It just seems to me that Germany got off incredibly lightly after the misery and devastation Germans caused in WWII.

    “Danny Baker ‘so, so sorry’ for disastrous tweet”
    The more he ‘explains’ and grovels, the worse it gets.

    His crime, of course, wasn’t that he insulted the Royal Family. Bbc ‘comics’ (I use the term loosely) do that all the time, and are roundly applauded for it.

    Nor that he mocked the rich and privileged, as he claims he was doing – that’s de rigueur at the lefty beeb.

    But the one, unpardonable sin on planet beeb – from which there is no coming back and for which there can be no absolution – is racism.

        This would be censored by the BBC because it conflicts with the prevailing liberal fascist ideology, but we are all descended from monkeys. Its just that those in Africa are the oldest surviving hominids not to have gone extinct. Africans are about 150,000 years old and Europeans are about 40,000 years old. So through his grandmother, Archie is about 110,000 years closer to Monkeys than most Europeans. This is not racism but the latest scientific facts extracted from genetic data. But when it comes to scientific facts, modern day liberal fascists are the same as those Victorian creationists who mocked Darwin for suggesting that Humans evolved from monkeys.

              I wonder sometimes if we are devolving – certainly the availability of huge amounts of information for little cost via the internet has caused mad side effects like the ‘ offence ‘ industry and the ‘ one tweet’ costs- a -career -effect .

                Look! Let’s be serious. If Darwin’s theory of evolution WAS correct, we would have four arms. Let’s face it, we need two arms/hands to hold an item, one to hold the nail/screw, and one to hit/screw it.

                  Not necessarily. A need for four arms would not in itself have produced four arms, it would have required a random mutation or a series of random mutations to give us four functioning arms in the first place, then natural selection would have arbitrated on the change.

                  Natural selection is no longer working the way it should because we are interfering in the process. What that means in the long term, God only knows.

          • Richard Pinder says:

            I was correct, but in science I would have said Ape. Apes emerged within “monkeys” as sister of the Cercopithecidae in the Catarrhini, so cladistically they are monkeys as well. There has been some resistance to directly designate apes (and thus humans) as monkeys despite the scientific evidence, so “Old World monkey” may be taken to mean the Cercopithecoidea or the Catarrhini. Scientific classifications are now more often based on monophyletic groups, that is groups consisting of all the descendants of a common ancestor. The New World monkeys and the Old World monkeys are each monophyletic groups, but their combination was not, since it excluded hominoids (apes and humans). Thus the term “monkey” is no longer referred to as a recognized scientific taxon. The smallest accepted taxon which contains all the monkeys is the infraorder Simiiforms, or simians. However this also contains the hominoids (apes and humans), so that monkeys are, in terms of currently recognized taxa, non-hominoid simians. Colloquially and pop-culturally, the term is ambiguous and sometimes monkey includes non-human hominoids. In addition, frequent arguments are made for a monophyletic usage of the word “monkey” from the perspective that usage should reflect cladistics.

            Therefore, I, Richard Pinder, was and always are scientifically correct, and knew it. I bet Piku must be employed by the BBC as a scientific adviser.

              Could it have been the poor reception for BBC World Service causing them to screw eyes up in concentration, or did they perhaps disagree with some of the more multicultural concepts they were being encouraged to embrace?

              Too, Chinese and Mongoloids have different skeletal structure to others.

              40,000 years is virtually a blink in terms of evolution for such majpr changes. Also there are no traces of the “in-betweeners”, if 40,000 is the conjectured time scale.

        (tongue in cheek here and after a few conspiracy theories with girlies for drinks)…….. we are now of the opinion that Meghan has not given birth at all !!! It started when one of our number – ex midwife, announced that Meghan was clearly further forward with her pregnancy when she first announced her pregnancy – thus appearing to look like a February birth rather than late April.

        Then the clear reluctance to give where the baby was born – home or hospital, and the ‘ungrateful’ absence of public recognition of the attending medical team. Which all begs the question, WHY NOT ???

        We came to the conclusion that a surrogate has had the baby, and being the ahem actress she is, Meghan would feel right at home in wearing an expanding pregnancy undergarment. Now we’ll see how long she’ll be out of the public eye before she has ‘snapped’ back into shape.

            Brissles I completely agree. Girly talk opened my eyes to this and I did a bit more research. Odd size ever changing up and down bumps that wobble from side to side, very strange shaped kicks, and a rather normal size baby having looked like triplets four months ago. It’s face very carefully hidden from show. Seems everything is not as it’s being told to us, even the birth dates and times all of a shambles. The big question is why, and what is this rather toxic couple holding over the Royals’ that makes them comply with this very strange behaviour. I don’t recall The Queen with staged photos for the US media meeting her other great grandchildren. All very strange! And no, sorry RobRoy pillow fights are private!

    I have to stop watching The Pledge or I’ll be had up for having murderous thoughts.

    Tonight there was a discussion about Margaret Thatcher, and 4 out of the 5 either hadn’t been born or were toddlers when she came to power. Yet there they were – the charming Afua, peabrain June and jailbird Maajid, commenting on a subject they know nothing about but had plenty to say.

    At least Nick Ferrari was around and could remember how we lived under Labour before Thatcher came to power, – and there’s the rub with that programme, there was only Gregg ‘dick’ Dyke who was of an age of seniority. But sadly he never gave a balanced view. The programme is geared to mainly 30 – 50 year olds, who could be discussing the Boer War for all they know. The programme badly needs more 60 and 70 year olds to tell it how it was before we entered the Common Market, and how life was outside of the bubble they clearly live in.

      I listened to The Nick Ferrari Show the other day on LBC and was surprised with his choice of the two ‘objective experts’ he had on to comment about what Danny Baker had said.

      The first up was Greg Dyke. Those of a certain age will remember Dyke in 2001 when he was the corporation’s director-general, describing the BBC as, ‘hideously white’.
      https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1313550/Director-general-admits-BBC-is-hideously-white.html

      The next guest asked to comment on the Baker story was Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, who once when asked in a TV interview what she thought of white people responded with, “I don’t like them. I want them to be a lost species in a hundred years.”

      They both said that Baker was a very bad boy with his racist comments but I must admit I wasn’t really listening, I just thought that these two clearly demonstrated the hypocrisy of the left shining through.

      It’s okay to be hateful and vile towards people as long as it’s the right kind of people.

        When does the ‘views my own’ disclaimer work its magic and when not? Like so much else BBC, things seem at best variable, depending.

        Dubious image humour of taste: immediate termination.

            Not as much as the 3.5 billion overspend on a crap emergency services radio network which was being reported earlier …

              Clearly there is a difference between campaigning in what is effectively a hustings where you can be debated, and a platform to giggle and either be filleted or feted depending on whether Ian approves of your politics.

              Clearly the producers either were ignorant or knew full well what they were doing, and proceeded on the basis of no such thing as more publicity.

                A strange time for the BBC to suddenly become concerned about balance – though with Ms Allen, Hislop and Merton together I can see their reasoning – but surely where QT was concerned Farage was balanced by Soubry, so political minefields were avoided?
                Naturally, the level of Anna Soubry’s mental balance is another question altogether.

                  The bbc has got to tone down the bias ( if it can ) because of the ‘communication act 2003 ‘ as well as the Ofcom guidelines – particulary section 6 regarding treatment of parties during election campaigns .

    I remember the time before the Common Market. Grandma talked about Britain winning the Boer War, First World War and the Second World War. Uncle talked about policing the British sector of Germany. Dad did his bit for the decolonisation of the West Indies and after Granddad tested designs of experimental aircraft that defeated the Nazis in the war, he suspended his retirement in the 1960’s to complete the Blackburn Buccaneer for Britain’s defence, then apologised to his grandson for not retiring earlier, so as to take me to the local park for a ride on the motorboats. The Beatles ruled the European pop charts. Every other year, Britain came first or second in the Eurovision Song Contest, forcing all other European nations to sing in English to be able to win. Then we fd it up by following the European unionist ideology of Heath, Napoleon and Hitler.

        In Christianity, fulfilling what was intended but never fully realised in Judaism except through the faith of the ‘Old Testament saints’, God is engaged with any willing human beings who wish to join in, in a process of recovery, rebuilding, restoration, renewal, reformation and more besides that halts the ruination and decay of leaving Eden.

        There are echoes of the gaining of knowledge and creativity that God intended humankind to have that exist beyond that early expulsion from the Ideal. Those echoes can be found even in the unregenerate, in the atheist and in the lapsed Believer as well as in the most devout of Christians. They lead to the discoveries we have seen come out of exploration of our world and its God-given built-in benefits and qualities as well as its sin-consequenced sicknesses.

        Medical science would be one obvious example. The exploration of, firstly, the globe and then, more recently, the universe would be another. Marky Mark put up an example of the art of painting. I am constantly reminded of the God-built miracles and creativity that comes from music.

        The Creator built into His creation the capability of resonance and sound and metal creation from raw ores. How and when did humankind first discover how to stretch a bit of animal sinew or gut or skin in order to make music? Then how to stretch metal, eventually leading to wire and the piano and more wires and the electric guitar.

        Then we can admire and be amazed by the capabilities of musicians themselves. I will admit to a certain fondness for the work of JS Bach, a Christian composer who sought to glorify God with his work. “The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul” (Johann Sebastian Bach) Handel, in my view, similarly. A French actress (may have been Isabelle Huppert) paraphrased an older quote about JS Bach: ‘God should be grateful to Bach for proving that He – God – exists.’

        It wasn’t that long after the death of Bach that another musician and mathematician sat down and calculated that composers would run out of notes that could be arranged together to form a unique piece by the end of the 18th century and if not then by, at the very least, the end of the 19th century.

        Whatever your feelings about contemporary music may be, there is good evidence that that aspect of creativity still has plenty of notes to play with. 🙂 One of the many ‘built-in’ wonders of our world.

    In a country of 65 million and rising typically at 300,000 a year through unfettered mass immigration, it is impossible for any government to micromanage the lives of each and every individual.
    So why does the BBC constantly suggest it can and bombard us with an array of individual hard luck stories with the strong inference that the government is to blame?. The person who died from a Pret a Manger sandwich, a Nigerian facing deportation (today), individuals not getting unlimited NHS money spent on their rare condition, various non-male, non-female LGBT situations, and many more.
    In BBC la la land, there should be a limitless provision of resources for every conceivable combination of individual circumstances, to be paid for, needless to say, by the majority who have no personal problems……..but increasingly may well feel the need to define one in order to get noticed and access everyone else’s cash.

      There really is a simple solution to this, an additional 10% tax on anyone in the ‘creative industries’ earning over £100K pa to pay for the social justice things they believe the state should provide.

      In addition why should it be possible for British performers to go live in a foreign country and pay no tax to the government whilst still banging on about how taxpayers money should be wasted?
      US citizens have to pay US taxes where ever they are in the world so why shouldn’t UK citizens?

      Actors at the bottom end of their profession have a tax concession no other groups are privileged to, it’s only fair when they rise to the top they recognise that and pay their fair whack.

      Sluff,

      In the same way that every week during PMQs you can be guaranteed that there will be at least one question on a constituents very personal, very specific circumstances, without any context or any real detail being given, directed at the Minister supposedly directly responsible for their predicament or to the PM herself.

      It’s politicking and virtue signalling to a large extent. It’s also often a complete misunderstanding of the situation and lack of subject knowledge by the person asking the question and a simple means of covering their own arse when the issue is looked into in more detail and the “victim” is found out to be at fault, like most of the “Windrush generation” too lazy to sort their citizenship out themselves. The “welfare” industry that so many of our politicians and the bBC move in the same circles as, charities and quangos, are the only ones who really benefit.

      In the case of the bBC itself, it is shit-stirring and filler, but they share the politicians belief in state-control and big government, in creating a state and mindset of need and helplessness to encourage voters and viewers to believe that they have our best interest and welfare at heart and are needed, when they do not and are not.

        I think we will find that vanishingly few 16 year olds will be getting £10 per hour. Regardless of the merits or otherwise of the proposal, the intended or unintended consequence of this will be to largely eliminate 16 year olds from the employment market. Employers will prefer mature workers with proven track records over unproven youngsters, or eliminate the roles altogether. There’s a reason that supermarkets and burger bars have invested in self-service tills and ordering points, which helps remove them from the overheads of minimum wage legislation whilst simultanteously putting pressure on smaller shops and eateries that cannot afford such investments.

    Muslim yob who threatened to shoot and stab ‘English pigs’ at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre is spared jail

    Ryhan Ali, 23, told theatre staff he was going to ‘get a gun’ and kill English scum
    When police arrived to arrest him, he branded an officer a ‘racist white c***’
    Earlier that morning, he had appeared in court for racially abusing hospital staff
    Serial racist was given a 12-month prison sentence, suspended for two years

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7017857/Muslim-yob-threatened-kill-English-pigs-Royal-Shakespeare-Theatre-avoids-jail.html

    And when police arrived to arrest him, he branded an officer a ‘racist white c***’

    Astonishingly, hours before his foul-mouthed rant, Ali had appeared in court for racially abusing two security guards after flying into a rage at a hospital.

    After abusing staff and making threats to rape a man’s wife and kill his children, police were called and he was arrested.

    Prosecutor Edward Hollingsworth said Ali had wandered into a ward from A&E and was sitting in a corridor.

    Security guards told him he should not be there and asked him to return to A&E.

    But he became verbally aggressive towards them, calling one of them ‘English scum’ and a ‘white b*stard.’

    The court heard that on March 15 this year, while subject to a community order for earlier racially aggravated public order offences, he phoned his probation worker.

    Calling him a ‘black b*stard’, Ali told him: ‘I’m not scared of you. I’m going to come next week and sort you out, you f***ing black bastard.’

    On April 9 he made a 999 call where he hurled racist abuse at the call handler.

    She recognised his voice as a result of previous calls, and politely said: ‘Hello Ryhan, how can we help you?’ But he responded by calling her a ‘white bitch.’

    At midnight on May 2, he made the 9th in a sequence of 999 calls, during which he was abusive towards the call-handler, using racist language and calling him a ‘dickhead’ and a ‘retard.

      Isnt it funny how many beeboids, when they leave Al Beeb, start supporting left wing causes and denounce the centre-right by rote?
      Maybe Paul Mason or Polly Toynbee could enlighten us why this is?

    Re Danny Baker and others instant dismissals.

    In every organisation where I, or friends and relatives, have worked, there has been a specific procedure for sacking employees: verbal warnings, written warnings, interviews, time to mend yourself etc. I realise that some such as Baker might be on a freelance basis with a contract of some sort, but what about Sir Tim Hunt for example, forced to resign from UCL.

    Current employment law means it’s usually quite hard to get rid of people except by declaring their ‘role’ redundant. Also you have to be very careful when letting go certain types of folk.

    Do people now have to sign contracts of employment agreeing to instant dismissal if they exhibit wrong-think?

    The new Poet Laureate, Simon Armitage, confesses on Today this morning that he has never had a glass of sherry. (The Poet Laureate receives 600 bottles of sherry.) What sort of poet is that? We’re not living in Merry England anymore, are we? Shakespeare, the Mermaid Tavern, Falstaff and his sack – are all melted into air.

      Zel
      They have proper booze in Yorkshire not yer poofy southern sherry . Maybe mr armitage can give the sherry to his lady wife – who I understand is a BBC producer – I bet they neck sherry – even in Salford which presumably is where naughty beeboids go as a punishment by WC1A HQ….

      …. jeez is that 600 bottles a year ? I’d better start writing poetry …

      There was a young lad who was stabbed
      Who didn’t think it was too bad
      Til he rang 999
      Which took a long time
      Now our thought and prayers ….

    I’m willing to predict that the far-left bbc collective will never report on any of the topics covered by the person; could be a man or woman because the voice sounds computer generated; who posts this on YouTube. The presentation is quirky but the content is interesting and informative. It’s about 33 minutes long so may be a little too long for some:

    Did BBC cover birth demographics ?
    \\ almost 30% of births are from foreign-born mothers,
    rising to 58% in London (higher than in *any* other city
    and to 76% in ONE borough, Brent. //
    The Times says it’s OK cos those foreign born mothers don’t have so many children each
    In addition
    7% of primary school kids weree born outside UK, half were EU

      To give some counterpoint, I’d like to know what percentage of those are to those where neither parent is from the UK? (speaking as someone with 2 kids and a wife from the US) The real problem is that within the EU/nonEU stats, there’s no breakdown between is it France vs Bulgaria or is it Yemen vs Canada. After all it’s not as if you here folks complaining about “Those Japanese coming over here, stealing our senior investment board directorships”

    Forced second votes are the means through which authoritarians seek to protect their power, by dressing up attacks on democracy in the guise of public consultation.
