    Three brutal, cowardly and disgusting farm attacks reported today from South Africa. Fochville, Addo and De Doorns.
    For obvious reasons, not something the bbc would report on. It would -unfortunately- be an ongoing theme, but it doesn’t fit the narrative. Been going on regularly for years, but not a whisper from our impartial broadcaster, once so keen…
    In fact, it would entirely undermine the narrative, so look away. After all, the beeb has.
    Quite surprising, really.
    Not.

      Fakenewswatcher,

      It really is horrendous – the slaughter of farmers and the tacit acceptance of it by the ANC ‘government.’

      And yes, the cowardly BBC won’t look at it because it doesn’t fit with the agenda. It takes journalists with guts and commitment like Lauren Southern with her ‘Farmlands’ which she recorded right there in the killing fields.

      I visited Australia in 1997 and found that people there really believed all was OK after the end of Apartheid and the rise to power of Mandela and the ANC. They were probably relying on the Sydney Morning Herald – a lefty propaganda outfit much like the BBC – for their news.

      The ANC got 57% of the vote in the elections last week. It was the first time they had dropped below 60%. But they are losing voters to an even more radical Black party – the EFF.

      And so corrupt black radicals will almost certainly govern South Africa permanently now.

          vlad,

          …And run it into the ground.

          True. But things move slowly in Africa. The ANC should really just appoint a Minister of Deterioration.

          I have a few friends there still. I hope they get the hell out of there.

    “British Steel should be nationalised, urges Labour”
    I don’t think the EU will allow that, anyway how about spending the money we use for foreign aid ? I.e. the money we generally spend on the ‘Indian Space Project’, ‘Chinese fortune cookie makers’ and ‘dancing girls in Timbuktu’ .

    “Nigel Farage to be examined over £450,000 from Arron Banks”
    Something tells me the EU does not like Nigel Farage or Democracy ?

      Desperate attempt to muddy the water after they found out that the politically motivated inspection of The Brexit Party by the Remainer Electoral Commission didn’t find anything .

    Indeed. More votes created for The Brexit Party.

    Brexit has indirectly done good work. Its caused the loss of Cameron and the loss soon of May. It has also created The Brexit Party.

    Watch this space.

    Does anyone know what is happening with the English Democrat , Robin Tilbrook’s court case claiming that we already left?
    What would happen if May gets her non Brexit deal signed and sealed before the case is dealt with in the event that the court rules in his favour? Would the so called withdrawal agreement be null and void?

    Seems to me that the BBC is carrying blithely on with it’s anti-Brexit bias, even doubling down on it though it is obliged to be impartial before an election. Perhaps because it was unclear until recently that the UK would participate, the BBC has the excuse that it’s ‘journalists’ can’t easily modify their ingrained lefty bias and it takes ample warning for them to practice putting on an impartial facade.

    Roll on Farage. He’s the only one with the guts to take on the foul BBC.

      We shall sign off with an agreement with Nigel on ’60mins Australia’ about ‘the worst PM ever’ (on YT). How did she ever get to be PM? Until now, I thought Gordon was the pits…
      Starkey on ‘parliament’s act of suicide’ also interesting to watch…

    Has anyone noticed, that they have now gone on steroids the last few months, from the “climate emergency” to the non-stop info on “mental health”, as if they would dearly love to medicate / control us all, like in a fascist / Bolshevik state. Case in point, I attempted, for only 30-45 seconds earlier tonight, to watch their “drama”, “Years and Years”, on BBC1 from 9.00-10.00. It was simply unbearable! In those few seconds, they had (naturally) a guy couple holding each other, and a dialogue, saying something like “this is when a trade war, became a real war!”! Pitiful. It was downright embarassing to watch them try to stuff their f…ing agenda down my throat. A GCSE student would be embarassed to put his name on that crap.
