    The only MSM review that comes close to being critical of bBBC “Years and Years” is that from The Spectator –

    Other tweets –

    /It’s anti Trump, anti Putin, pro migrants, pro LGBT, pro trans, mixed race marraiges. It’s a BBC drama no less and it’s a load of shite #YearsAndYears/

    /Going by the twitter timeline, #YearsAndYears is pure Guardian / BBC wank-fodder for apathetic liberals who haven’t had anything to wring their hands & angst about since the Extinction Rebellion eco-students suddenly stopped ~protesting~ & SUV’d off back home to Tetbury/

        LBC, 7.45am tho this is morning, a caller informed know nothing Nick Ferrari of two facts:
        1. Russell Howard, the self described comedian, made a rape joke about Anne Widdecombe. No outrage, no public hounding, no MSM response. Carl Benjamin makes the same joke against that nasty piece of work, Labour MP and every lefty in the country jumps on him as being some kind of criminal.
        2. Tommy Robinson, on his campaign trail as an EU MEP candidate, is repeatedly assaulted and has a milkshake deliberately thrown over him. Everyone laughs, including the police who are supposed to be upholding the laws in our country. Nothing is done to the assailants. But Nigel Farage has a milk shake thrown over him and in his case it’s serious, all the usual rats are condemning it.

        I’ve never heard someone taken off the air as quickly as this man was, by the know nothing Nick Ferrari.

    Here we go I’ll save you all the anguish of reading about that brave young Spanish lad that attacked the Muslim terrorists during the London bridge attack. Note the totally pro Muslim BBC (It’s all our fault because we are colonial) fail to mention the fact that the “attackers” are a) terrorists and b) Muslim…..however they manage to tell you that the brave Spanish lad was a Catholic…..pathetic pathetic pathetic….and we are paying for this.

    man ran towards the London Bridge attackers and tried to beat them with his skateboard before he was fatally stabbed, an inquest has heard.

    Spaniard Ignacio Echeverría, 39, was one of eight people killed by Rachid Redouane, Youssef Zagbha and Khuram Butt on 3 June 2017.

    Guillermo Sanchez-Montisi said his friend ran at the attackers when he saw one of them stab a woman.

    His killers looked “prepared” and “professional”, the Old Bailey heard.

    Mr Echeverría, Mr Sanchez-Montisi and another friend were cycling along Borough High Street after a day’s skateboarding on the South Bank when they saw an injured man running away from London Bridge.

    Victims of the London Bridge attackLondon Bridge attack: What happened

    The court was shown CCTV footage of Mr Echeverría getting off his bike and running to join PC Wayne Marques and off-duty PC Charles Guenigault who were trying to intervene as the attackers stabbed Marie Bondeville and Oliver Dowling.

    Mr Echeverría, who worked for HSBC as part of a team fighting money laundering, could then be seen swinging his skateboard at Rachid Redouane.

    Redouane made a stabbing motion towards Mr Echeverría, who fell to the ground. The footage then showed Zagbha and Redouane attacking him.

    Mr Sanchez-Montisi said in a statement read out to court: “From the way they were attacking people it was clear that their intentions were to kill everyone.”

    He said there was a woman, now known to be Ms Bondeville, on the floor being stabbed repeatedly.

    ‘Professional’ assailants

    Describing his friends actions, he said: “It was like he didn’t even think about it, but reacted immediately,”

    “He grabbed his skateboard… and went towards the group,” he said.

    “One of the attackers was covering his head as Ignacio was hitting him with the skateboard. I could hear the sound of the skateboard hitting, then suddenly Ignacio was on the floor,” he added.

    Mr Sanchez-Montisi said he watched his friend then attempt to fend off the attackers’ blows with his skateboard before one of them stabbed him.

    A courtroom’s hushed silence

    BBC reporter Francesca Gillett, at the inquest

    The packed courtroom watched footage of Mr Echeverría’s last moments in hushed silence.

    CCTV showed Mr Echeverría and his friends cycling into the path of the commotion.

    The camera’s view was partially blocked by a bus stopping as the attack unfolded. Traffic had slowed and bus passengers got off and fled the scene. In large letters, an advert on the side of the bus read: “Stop! In the name of love”.

    Earlier that day Mr Echeverría – described by his friend as a Catholic who was “all about trying to help people” – had bought a small, toy blackboard for his sister’s children.

    He had the gift with him on the night of the attack, along with the skateboard he used to try to stop the attackers.

    Footage showed wounded Mr Echeverría falling backwards onto the pavement and then waving the skateboard with outstretched arms to defend himself.

    Later, the manager of nearby tapas restaurant Lobos told how he suddenly found himself in charge of the safety of his customers and staff. He locked the doors and kept people away from the windows.

    CCTV from the restaurant showed terrified waitresses holding their hands to their mouths in disbelief and pointing in horror as the attack unfolded outside.

    Dr Jonathan Moses, who was off duty and dining there, became upset in court as he recounted persuading the manager to let him go and help.

    “I said I can’t watch them die,” he said, his voice shaking. He had gone to the aid of a woman lying on the ground and told her: “I’m a doctor, here to help.”

    Image copyrightPAImage captionMr Echeverría’s parents accepted their late son’s George Medal from the Queen in October last year

    Mr Echeverría was posthumously awarded the George Medal for his actions.

    His father, Joaquín Echeverría, said the family has not attended the inquest as “a gesture to show we have complete faith in the justice system in England”.

    Continuing his evidence, Mr Sanchez-Montisi said the knifemen looked “prepared, professional”.

    He said he had to run away because he felt he might become their next target after one attacker “looked straight at me”.

    “When he was looking at me, his face, he looked like the devil,” he added. “It was very painful to leave my friend but we were going to be next.”

    “I would not wish the feeling impotence, of not being able to do anything, on anyone, even my worst enemy”, he said.

    Evidence has been heard in relation to the seven other victims: Xavier Thomas, Chrissy Archibald, Sara Zelenak, James McMullan, Sébastien Bélanger, Alexandre Pigeard and Kirsty Boden.

      I have made two complaints to the British Broadcasting to the caliphate , about the omission of the words Islam and Muslim on EVERY broadcast covering the London Bridge attacks, they replied it was not relevant as they are covering the victims stories. Tell that to the families of the poor people butchered by these animals.The BBC are out of control and feel they can broadcast whatever they want without consequences. I have complained to my MP, but got the standard dismissive reply from her😡

    This makes my blood boil, what chance of crowdfunding some sort of legal action I wonder. I noticed regards the milkshake incident with NF, the BBC’s report is almost celebratory, even giving details of the milkshake’s flavour and content and naturally a word of justification from the attacker in quotes of course.

    I also read the report of the brave Spanish lad and indeed, no mention of the reasons for the attack, i.e ‘Islamic terror’, not even a mention of ‘terror’ or the words shouted during the attack, namely AA , as these poor people lay dying. However had this been a person of a different religious or political persuasion, I suspect the reporting may have been somewhat different.

    Something has to be done

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tyne-48339711

    ‘Paul Crowther, 32, from Throckley, Newcastle, said it was a £5.25 Five Guys banana and salted caramel milkshake.’

    The BBC spend most of the report giving us the attacker’s views….

    ‘”It’s a right of protest against people like him.

    “The bile and the racism he spouts out in this country is far more damaging than a bit of milkshake to his front.”
    Standing in handcuffs outside a branch of Waterstones, Mr Crowther said he did not regret his actions.

    He denied an allegation that someone was cut, saying he only threw liquid on the politician.

    Of his milkshake, he added: “I was quite looking forward to it, but I think it went on a better purpose.”‘

    Rather than the sensationalised and weaponised alarmist talk of a threat to democracy and the hysterical calls to ‘remember Jo Cox’ we get nothing at all about how politicians are under constant threat and living in fear as we get whenever a Remain politician threatened. Look how they treat Carl Benjamin after his stupid joke…it was a joke. The still ridiculous and full of her own self-importance Victoria Derbyshire castigated Benjamin….how could he use rape as a joke, as entertainment?…he is normalising rape apparently.

    That’ll be the BBC that has frequently been accused of using rape as entertainment in its programmes….

    ‘The Verdict: guilty of turning rape into entertainment

    The BBC’s new court-based programme is meaningless rubbish that could potentially do a lot of harm.
    This rubbish will not educate anyone. It will instill fear into victims and potential victims, and reassure rapists and would-be sex attackers that they are Alright Jack. The media must now take the lead in informing the public about the realities of rape, rather than using it as entertainment. What is needed is a serious discussion, not a celebrity circus.’

    Benjamin makes a stupid and crude joke and he is hung out to dry by the BBC which itself promotes rape as entertainment, but actually physically attack a politician and it’s all a joke to the BBC…if he is a brexiteer. If someone ‘milkshakes’ Soubry I just wonder if the reaction would be the same.

      In the above exchange, a muslim woman is heard shouting “we’re not homophobic”.

      She could have added, “we just believe homosexuality is a sin punishable by death, like our scriptures tell us”.

      “Quran: If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both.
      Abdullah ibn Abbas : The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: If you find anyone doing as Lot’s people did, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done.
      Sunan Abu Dawud 38:444

      Abdullah ibn Abbas : If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death.

      Al Tirmidhi
      Whoever is found conducting himself in the manner of the people of Lot, kill the doer and the receiver.

      It was narrated from Ibn`Abbas that the Messenger of Allah said: “Whoever you find doing the action of the people of Lut, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done.” (Hasan)

      It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet said concerning those who do the action of the people of Lut: “Stone the upper and the lower, stone them both.” (Hasan)

      Al Muwatta
      Malik related to me that he asked Ibn Shihab about someone who committed sodomy. Ibn Shihab said, “He is to be stoned, whether or not he is muhsan.”

      Ibn Abbas and Abu Huraira reported God’s messenger as saying, ‘Accursed is he who does what Lot’s people did.’ In a version…on the authority of Ibn Abbas it says that Ali [Muhammad’s cousin and son-in-law] had two people “burned” and that Abu Bakr [Muhammad’s chief companion] had a wall thrown down on them.”

      Punish, kill, burn and stone gays. What’s homophobic about that?

      Is it true that the UKIP leaflet is too big to actually fit inside the postal ballot envelope anyway ?

      The deadline for postal ballot is election day 23rd so why was Snow opening his only on Sunday 19th ? … fishy ?

      Ah Snow did tweet an apology admission of possible incompetence at 6:08pm

    Here’s one that has really got the bBBC editorial team’s knickers in a twist.
    Back in the news is the predominantly muslim school in Birmingham whose parents object to the ‘teaching’ of LGBT focussed issues. As a result they are keeping their kids away from school lessons.

    So, what is the editorial line ?
    Could this become a very rare case of impartiality?
    Oh to be a fly on the wall………

    The Yorkshire Dales: A very politically correct program transmitted in Yorkshire. BBC 2 on Saturday.

    It shows us that Charities run by metropolitan left-wing middle-class southerners are using foreign aid to replace the working-class Dales folk with foreigners. (1) We see Afghan asylum seekers used as cheap labour on a farm which has replace local Shepherd’s. (2) We see blind Asians on the backs of tandems pedalled by white metropolitan left-wing middle-class southerners. (3) We see a white male metropolitan left-wing middle-class southerner beaten by a female cyclist to the top of the Buttercups pass. (4) We see a metropolitan left-wing middle-class southerner help a black man (brought in to replace locals with cheap labour) clean out the stables. (5) We meet the first woman to become a guard on the Wensleydale Railway. She now wants the volunteers to train her to become its first female train driver. Other small politically correct incidents involved local politicians, etc.

      The southern libtards encouraged mass trash immigration into London etc which made that place a shocking dump, noticed what had hit the fan, so decided to white flight out – though they won’t ever admit that.
      Now they are swarming out into indigenous rich places like parts of Yorkshire and encouraging mass trash immigration all over again….

    Still on the Peterborough by election, of course one of the main issues being Brexit here is the Tory candidates statement on it – just so you the voter will know where on the issue he stands before you cast your vote:

    “To make Brexit work for Peterborough families – by securing the investment that people in Peterborough need. We’re taking a balanced approach to the economy – cutting our debt while investing in public services. That means we can afford to improve our town centre, with better open spaces and more choice for shoppers. Just like we did in Cathedral Square. So our whole city benefits from more jobs and a stronger local economy. ”

    Any the wiser? If that’s the best he can do then he deserves to lose and badly. Just in case I have this wrong here’s his website so you can check yourself:

      I had an eight page leaflet from this Tory candidate posted through the letterbox last week – it’s full of scaremongering about Jeremy Corbyn and nothing about the accomplishments of Theresa May and the current government. In fact is never even mentions her by name, whereas the word “Corbyn” can be found a total of thirteen times.

    The BBC is not keen to comment on the fall of Venezuela in an way other than all ‘it’s Trump’ fault. But then they are somewhat distracted by BREXIT protestations. The EU is a socialist dream state in development. We are not there yet, it may take 20 years but it will be China or Russia mark 2. What the UK may look like if we stay in the EU will be more like Greece and Spain than Venuzuela, but all are facing financial ruin. Only Venuzuela have managed to do this on their own without the EU legislation.

    This is worth a read. Its NOT Trumps fault. The BBC are far too busy defending the UK Socialist alliance within the confines of the EU to check what facts it has. Nobody prospers in the EU. There can be no alternative (nor will there be any sunny options for our MEP to follow post BREXIT. Maybe a life pension (all MEPS have that right plus expenses). It will collapse, its just how long will it take? The EU is not democratic in the sense of an open democracy. It is authoritarian and totalitarian. Democracy is a facade to quell the uninformed that they will be assimilated, processed and ultimately ignored.

    This is Socialism at work. An interesting BLOG linked from the TA actually does give some salient facts about the dangers of Socialism and what it costs…

    Could it happen in the UK? Arguably its already happening in the EU. The BBC thinks its too biased to report, you know that famous impartiality that is as rare as hen’s teeth…

    ‘Chloe Westley examined the causes of the recent violence in Venezuela. She concludes that in a desperate attempt to maintain control and impose his socialist agenda, President Nicolas Maduro is using military force to quell political dissidents. Worse still, many political commentators refuse to accept that socialist policies are the problem:

    “Many on the far left simply refuse to accept that socialism hasn’t worked in Venezuela. They often claim that U.S. sanctions are to blame for Venezuela’s troubles. But price controls, production quotas, nationalising nearly all industries, and introducing currency controls have all contributed to economic collapse. And even if you believe that Venezuela’s economic crisis was caused directly by sanctions imposed by America, what possible explanation can be offered for imprisoning political opponents and using military force against protestors?”

    Just switched on the BBC News Channel to be told that “the most interesting story in the news today” is the fact that 400 African-American students at a university in Atlanta, Georgia have had all their university fees paid for by a longstanding graduate of the institution. I’m sure that’s very nice for them, but is it really worth reporting on a British news channel?

        Yet in stark contrast, Julia Hartley Brewer has rightly condemned the assailant and correctly stated that this is an attack on a politician and is unacceptable.
        Julia went on to say that the divide is no longer between leave/remain, conservative/labour et al, but rather, that it is between democracy or non democracy and that if you don’t agree with someone’s political views you ought to challenge them or debate them, not throw things at them.

    Wow
    You couldnt make it up.
    The BBC now blamming Brexit for our failure to win Eurovision….the Europeans hate us …..is one quote. No love (intentionaly patronising) the European elite hate us but the man in the street (or women) admires the British voter for standing up against tyranny as we the British have done for the last Hundered and Twenty years. The article then debunks itself by showing that we haven’t done well for twenty years. And if Eurovision is the mouth piece of the socialist remainer pro European left wing euro group how the f did Israel win last year.
    The BBC is getting more pathetic with each day.

    Trump’s ‘genocidal taunts’ will not end Iran – Zarif

    If the article didn’t have the BBC logo it could pass for that of an Iranian state broadcaster. The article focuses heavily on the Iranian position and uses a clip from Clapper to weave the ‘propaganda’.

    We are supposed to believe that Trump is a madman dictator and the US is being dragged along against it’s will. I don’t think so, if anything, Trump is probably one of a minority who are resisting US globalisation ambitions?
