    Has anyone thought about complaining to the BBC about the line up for the Marr Programme which is due on Sunday morning on the grounds of unfair representation ? they are all remainers .
    There is a lot on twitter about it .

    I d do it but I’m waiting for the outcome of the complaint I made last weekend . They have 5 more working days to respond before they breach their own complaints system ….

        Brexit has exposed the rot at the heart of our national institutions. I believe it’s happened slowly over the past 40 or 50 years mainly as a result of the enervating effect of being in the EU but I think that’s a consequence of earlier planning to give away our heritage, by stealth, by traitors who want to abolish nation states and introduce world government.

    “As rightwing populism spreads, bigotry against the LGBT community is growing
    Hannah Jane Parkinson”

    [Are you looking for experts on bigotry? Try the Guardian, its pages are filled with anti Brexit, anti male
    anti white, anti Conservative, anti British examples of bigots at work, six days a week. Except they are
    unconscious bigots. Unware of their bigot status.
    They believe that it is impossible for them to be wrong about anything, especially their expertise in bigot identification.
    As comments BTL demonstrate, Guardian viewers are also largely lefty bigots.]

    [Unusually I could not find a Wikipedia article about Parkinson.
    https://www.theguardian.com/profile/hannah-jane-parkinson
    Hannah Jane Parkinson is a Guardian columnist who writes on pop culture, music, tech, football, politics and mental health
    End of profile.
    So I do not know if Hannah has more degrees than a thermometer or is just another useless, embittered, bent lefty, employed solely because she is an embittered, bent lefty.

    http://queerbio.com/wiki/index.php?title=Hannah_Jane_Parkinson
    Queer bio’s raison d’etre is the well being of non heterosexuals, so the Parkinson article does not refer her sexuality.
    As I would expect from a homosexual based site it is ****ing useless. It quotes from the Guardian “profile” above.
    Two links 1) The Guardian, above 2) A 404, page not found. That’s all folks.]

    “Now, however, as rightwing populism spreads around the world, there is a noticeable rise in bigotry.
    The LGBT+ community is feeling besieged once again”

    “On a day dedicated to ending prejudice, I feel more uneasy than ever before about the negative rhetoric around LGBT rights”

    [A very long list of how hard done by the homosexuals is next]

    “Protests have taken place outside schools in Birmingham and Manchester, because children were being taught tolerance around LGBT+ issues”
    [Except Hannah, the parents complained that homosexuality was not being taught, it was being promoted.
    Which is illegal, as the homosexual teacher presenting the material was well aware, having left another school after queer promotion allegations.
    Adult male homosexual teacher , promoting homosexuality in minors, also known as grooming.
    https://www.theguardian.com/education/2019/mar/04/birmingham-school-stops-lgbt-lessons-after-parent-protests%5D

    “But it is the rise in recent LGBT+ hate crime that is truly alarming. In the year 2017-2018, LGBT+ hate crimes in England and Wales have risen by 28%”
    [Hannah provides a link
    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-britain-crime-lgbt/rise-in-reported-lgbt-hate-crime-in-uk-a-wake-up-call-idUSKCN1MQ231
    But not to the statistics, to a Reuter’s report relying on Stonewall. So Hannah, how many of these so-called hate crimes, were actually drunken queers having sex in public being told to piss off by a normal person? How many people were physically attacked?]

    “although the proposal was rejected in a non-confirmatory people’s referendum last year”
    [Hannah getting some Remain propaganda into her article.]

    [Summary, bigoted vindictive queer demonstrates traits common to her type.]

    Last chance

    A website called the peerage.com described ms Parkinson as linked to the shabby ruling class – she seems to write on mental issues so I don’t know if she’s directly affected by it .

    I wonder how this left terminology of ‘populism ‘ actually works – I’ve said before on this site that I won’t sign up to the term – but – what is the opposite ?
    Unpopulism ?

    It seems that both the labour and conservative parties are both ‘unpopulist’ parties – and the liberals aren’t worth mentioning

      Popularity is what the left like to have.
      Which the left court with policies such as money trees and soak the rich.
      Which have been disastrous wherever they have been tried, except in Corbyn land, where Communism
      has “not really been tried”.

      The left also import popularity, if the locals will not vote lefty. 3.6 million by Blair, Mandy and the other traitors. Bribe the imports with housing and benefits, **** the natives, rub their noses in it.

      Populism is what the left hate, tradition, history, a sense of nationhood, personal responsibility, hard work,
      small government. The Conservative Party in brief. Before it was infiltrated by the lefties who cannot win
      elections, so they cheat and lie.

      The people who have recently delayed Brexit are CINO. The ERG should lead a merciless clear out of MPs
      and give more power and administrative help to local Conservative Branches, to ensure no more CINO are selected as candidates, ever.

      The Conservatives need a new, untainted, candidate, in about 500 constituencies in the next General Election.
      No more Ken Clarke attitudes must be allowed to enter the HoC with a Conservative rosette, let alone permitted to stay for 40 years.

      Most importantly, the next Conservative leader must hate the EU and the Eurocrats and have its destruction
      (and the freedom of other Europeans) amongst their policies.

      Not being a licence payer, I do not watch BBC TV or listen to BBC radio. I do not miss the programmes but this limits my ability to comment thereupon. I am sure other BBBC contributors labour under the same conditions.

      I treat The Guardian as a Siamese Twin of the BBC. I have read the post-Brexit extreme left nastiness and lies, posing daily in The Guardian, as educated opinion. It disgusts me.

      Much of it, when examined forensically, is of dubious validity at best, much of it nonsense. The self-appointed higher intellectual, educational and even moral, standards; which the Guardian claims for the publication, its writers, its readers and Remain voters, are fictitious. Most recent UK Graduates, are graduates only because of hyper grade inflation, and it shows BTL in the Guardian.

    “a big loss for the Liberals was Tony Abbott. He had won in a landslide six years ago, leading the Libs to a big victory then. But he was diabolically undermined by Turnbull. So now he is gone, but so too is Turnbull, and Pyne, and Bishop, and some other lefty Libs. That will make things a lot easier for the Morrison government.

    Labor losses include the following: Shorten has now lost two elections and has stepped down as Labor leader. Like Hillary Clinton in America, he is the twice-failed candidate, and a new leader will have to be found. Also, lesbian activist Kerryn Phelps may lose her seat”

      Al-Baghdadi has a BA an MA and a Phd in Islamic studies from the university of Cairo, but according to some spotty hipster called Nigel at the BBC he doesn’t know anything about Islam!

      Yeah right Nigel you probably think it’s still a peaceful religion despite not being able to quote a verse of peace from the instruction manual that is their holy book!

      Come to that whenever you do get accosted by the usual loon insisting it is all peaceful, ask them to quote a peaceful verse from the book. They either can’t – in which case “don’t you think with all the promotion of it as a peaceful religion that someone would have managed to find one”?

      Or the usual thing about he who saves a life

      IN which case why have you only quoted half of it and missed the impotant bit “thus we ordained for the children of Israel” in other words nothing to do with Muslims save for the following verse which tells them to murder everyone who causes ‘mischief’!

      The result for the Rhondda in the referendum was a reflection on the national (UK) one . So I think the traitor badge fits quite well .
      I’m not sure what connection mr Bryant has with the Rhondda – according to Wikipedia . Anyway there is an interesting comment about this former C or E priests’ expenses claim as an MP –

      Bryant claimed over £92,000 in expenses over the five years leading up to the 2009 scandal over MPs’ expenses.[19] During that time he flipped his second-home expenses twice, claimed mortgage interest expenses that started at £7,800 per year before rising (after flipping) to £12,000 per year. He also claimed £6,400 in stamp duty and other fees on his most recent purchase, and £6,000 per year in service charges.

      So he is pretty good with our money into his bank account – no doubt all legal ….

      “Anyway they did a good job spacing the lettering out”
      It looks like a stencil to me, especially the O.
      Probably prepared on cardboard, the corrugated cardboard supplied in large rolls for packing, this is the cheapest
      commonly available material in the large size required.
      The cardboard would be stapled to a wooden frame.
      The users of this cardboard are also likely to be users of large stencils.
      Three people, one at each end holding the frame, the third person does the spraying.
      7.5t flatbed truck to transport materials and personnel, not sure if a Ford Transit type van is large enough.
      Less than 10 minutes with some practise beforehand.

      This is how we did it 40 years ago.
      If I am correct there are not many people who need stencils that big. I would look at boatyards and airfields.
      Possibly smaller stencils enlarged with a home made pantograph.

          “How did you guess the method”
          Early in my half century of being right wing I helped put some anti Communist slogans on brick walls.
          Using the method described above.
          Another right winger worked for a packing company, a very good worker.
          He was highly regarded by his employer, had the use of a company vehicle and was able to buy the materials at cost.
          A third right winger was a carpenter, the signs were made in his garage.
          The results pictured by EB still look home-made-ish to me.

          But I am guessing, this was a long time ago, and technology has advanced.
          No doubt digital methods are available today, but I doubt if any of them are cheap.
          I hope this is helpful.
          Are you considering some “All Cables should be suspended” signs?

      Wouldn’t mind betting that in the early days of his public exhibition of his Art; Banksy was at a guess, more conservative in his politics – but now – after having made his millions selling his work to NY/Islington effeminates etc – he will probably have been speedily converted to the far, far left of British politics.

      Especially after hearing “Greta The Swede”.

      Oh, her and the Anti-Semite: P. Snow. and Attenborough, Blair, Clegg and especially after he heard the gentle tones of King Bercow.inc. Copy!

      Fedup2,

      Friends in Australia all thought Labor would win. Apparently Labor did not have a strong message, flipping from increasing taxes on the rich to green issues, etc.

      I think that could also apply to Change UK. What does that name even mean? And do they just stand for change for change’s sake? And the sly Corbyn cannot lead and cannot adopt a principle and stick to it, as he tries to figure out where best to position himself and be all things to all Labour voters.

      People need a strong individual leader with a strong, consistent message they can agree with and get behind. That’s part of the reason why Farage is doing so well in the polls.

          The number has shrunk since the establishment of Israel to one or two percent of Jews who remain in the Arab world. They are in Morocco and Tunisia. I doubt there is a single Jew left in any of the other Arab countries, where they numbered in the thousands or hundreds of thousands and in some cases even preceded the Arab inhabitants.

          The original John Peel but in reverse.

          Our original Bobby (John Peel) was white, English, born in England, fought crime and died for his nation. Now the MET has changed that way of recruitment by doing the exact opposite.

    Blimey! The BBC have at last reported this. Why? Perhaps because ex-members of the Parachute Regiment were at their front door 🙂

    BBC Online News:

    “”Rallies held for British soldiers facing NI charges””

    “”Hundreds of people – many of them waving banners in support of an Army veteran being prosecuted for the murder of two men on Bloody Sunday – protested outside Broadcasting House in London.””

    “”One protester said soldiers were being “persecuted” for doing their job.””

    “”Rallies were also held in Glasgow, Cardiff, Bristol and Northern Ireland.””

    “”They also expressed anger at what they say is a lack of media coverage of the issue.””

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-48321738

    I get the feeling that The Brexit Party and electoral consequences are sending painful shivers down the BBC spine.

    The video clip is a must-watch. The sight of eight ex-Paras in their red berets marching outside and towards the BBC with letters on their back spelling ‘BETRAYAL’ is stirring. The BBC was fortunate that these men halted outside their entrance doors…

      I’m surprised that that gang of Islamic thugs didn’t have a open bar-b-Q for all the street because the cops on the other side of the fence won’t attempt to climb over said fence nor will they come round the street corner to arrest them as the finger nails of most female police officers might get damaged. I understand that the chief police officers nails have never been scratched in all the years they have served.

      The Icelandic entry looked to be a scene from a bondage porn vid.

      The British entry appeared to be non gender specific, slightly overweight wearing very tight jeans dodgy footwear and a cardigan. The song was flat and in my view a whining tuneless dirge. It summed up the state of most things wrong in the UK.

    What began with extremists throwing eggs quickly escalated into hurling bricks, shattered car windows, and the evacuation of crying and terrified children from the estate.
    I personally witnessed women and children injured by rocks and bricks at the hands of these Muslim thugs. One of my cameramen was bleeding from his head after being hit by a stone.
    Again, the police didn’t stop any of it. By not acting, they allowed and encouraged these violent thugs to attack us.
    This was the latest in an ongoing wave of attacks against my supporters and team. All designed to stop my political campaign.”
    The Police were no doubt hoping (and prepared for) that TR’s supporters would respond and the police could allege they ‘rioted’. Any opportunity to redress the statistical imbalance and create, ‘Far Right Nazis’ where there are very few. Playing with Fire I do believe. Actually fanning the flames of physical confrontation, intentionally.

    Paddy’s ‘Broadcasting House’ on R4 is biased and poor on things political. Worst of all are his ‘paper-readers’.
    One this morning though the German CDU was ‘centre-right’. It’s been twenty years or more, since that applied. The CDU has shifted way over to the Left under Merkel on almost all key issues, and is now in what seems a permanent embrace with the Socialist SPD. They are indistinguishable, really.
    The CDU have also tried to outflank the even further left-wing Green Party on issues such as environment and immigration…Not even a Communist Party would have been able to keep up.
    Communist? Interesting thought. Study Merkel’s history, and things start making sense.
    I always wonder whether Paddy’s guests are really so ignorant, or whether they are actually willfully malicious?

    On a second point, German ‘democracy’ may be beyond saving. This morning’s ‘Die Welt’ reports the massive destruction and vandalism of almost all AfD election posters in Berlin. They come down as fast as they go up. Taken together with the anti-AfD shananigans in parliament, on which I reported earlier, and a picture of the 30s builds up.

    You just cannot believe what a load of duplicitous shits we have in and around the parliamentary cabinet-just consider this statement, you won’t credit it-unbelieveable.
    Today arch-Remoaning MPs Amber Rudd, Damien Green, Nicky Morgan and Sir Nicholas Soames will launch a ‘Caucus’ to prevent democratic pro-Brexit MPs from becoming leader of the Conservative Party.
    Sir Nicholas told the Daily Telegraph: “We cannot succumb to the comfort blanket of populism.”
    According to the Daily Telegraph some 60 Conservative MPs including eight Remainer Cabinet Ministers are backing the campaign, named the “One Nation Caucus”. The group’s aim is to block the most sound Parliamentarians on Brexit from becoming leadership candidates, in the event that Theresa May is at some point dragged from No.10 Downing Street.
    What will the BBC make of that I wonder. I can guess and I know what you and I make of it-Democracy sliding down into the abyss.

    It is a graph showing the rate of melt of the polar ice caps and they are melting at a faster rate than ever before. I am pointing this out so readers will be pre cogniscent of this when it is paraded as proof positive of man made climate change.

    There is a small caveat here however. The freeze cycle last year was quite significant and it might be that ice moved to areas where it wasn’t normally seen, and therefore rapid retreat might be expected. Either way if that were the case the rate should slow to something more average, and to date it is not doing so.

    You should also bear in mind that we are at the nadir of sun cycle 24 with almost no sunspots which has an effect on climate of course.

      There are a large number of factors (and cycles of varying length) which bear on the amount of sea ice at the poles and trying to draw any conclusions from a 5 month period of the current year is frankly ludicrous, even the 10 year figures you show are far too short a period. Suffice it to say that CAGW crowd always try to ignore the charts showing the early 70s polar ice as this does not fit their catastrophic narrative.

      @Thoughtful See last years graph
      Yeh started outside 10 year mean then went well inside it

      A one month trend below the line is not necessarily concerning
      #1 why’s someone chose to put the 2012 line ?
      seems is bit arbitrary ..you could put 1981 or something
      #2 I think here has been stuff outside the line before , then it turned out to be faulty instruments are was revised later
      #3 Are there different types of ice counting ?
      Yes this “3 day sea ice , in areas which have at least 15% coverage”
      I’d guess that other metrics include ice depth , not just coverage
      Someone like Tony Heller will be watching this stuff

      Remember in another area a glacier has reversed it’s decline trend and has started growing.

      Canadian mathematical model expert Christopher Essex said they should stop pretending that sea ice is a kind of thermometer
      ..cos there are so many dynamics that can make such a difference
      eg the way ice forms in a bay one year is not the same as the next

      BTW your graph and discussion is here

      I wouldn’t jump to any conclusions from just reading from one source
