    Last night’s Question Time was dire. I can’t watch that verbose, pompous ass Barry Gardiner. In fact, I haven’t been able to watch him since he showered devotion and affection on Jeremy Corbyn during a Dimbleby QT while defending him against allegations of anti-Semitism. He was so devout and affectionate that even that duplicitous snake Corbyn might have been embarrassed by the display had he been there to witness it.

    Then there was the LIbDem woman, reveling in the idea of standing for the leadership of a party that does not know the meaning of its own name.

    And Uriah Heep will happily deny the 2016 referendum if that’s what it will take to keep his precious party in power.

    I quite liked the American psychology guy, though he also doesn’t understand democracy. I’ve always found it interesting that the educated intelligentsia are so often the dumbest people around.

    I would have thrown a brick through the screen if not for The Brexit Party lady – the only sane voice on the panel.

    Seems to me that the time is ripe for a new general election. But I guess that if the results of the local and EU elections have not obliged the Tories to seek a mandate from the people to continue to govern, nothing will.

      The BP lady seems knew to that kind of malarky , when harassed by Creepy Barry about whether Norway or Turkey were in the EU , she should have just asked him whether he had read Camorons glossy £9m leaflet

      Im sure she will get better , cos she is going to be attacked a lot

        Kaiser,

        Yes I noticed she was a bit taken aback by Gardiner – that self-righteous little ideologue who thinks he is so wonderful.

        And yes, I think she will improve.

      Stew – What was really amusing is how the ‘lady’ in question rambled on about ‘cultural appropriation’, blissfully unaware that she had ‘appropriated’ an entire country/culture unto herself. By her own argument, surely she was a Zimbabwean, who should hasten back there?
      I will refrain from commenting on the breadth -or lack thereof- of her vocab…
      An embarrassing few minutes from an embarrassing channel.

    EXCLUSIVE: British Jews in fear after pro-Palestine group supported by Corbyn forces Jewish shops to close with ‘campaign of intimidation’

    Pro-Palestine activists have been conducting a ‘campaign of intimidation’ against Jewish shops that sell products from Israel for years
    The Palestine Solidarity Campaign, which is supported by Corbyn, has forced two Jewish businesses to close and activists have threatened others
    Other groups targeted a British Jewish shopkeeper in Ireland and Scotland, forcing him to relocate three times and eventually flee Britain
    A new film, Hounded, has been released by anti-racist campaigners to draw attention to how British Jewish shopkeepers have been living in fear for years

      Annunaki,

      Dunno if that group is the same as the Palestine Solidarity Movement, which is or was basically a terrorist front. Probably is.

      I look forward to Imams ranting and raving in their mosques against the scum that go around threatening productive people and destroying their businesses just because they are Jewish.

      I also look forward to indignant reports from the BBC as they expose this evil.

      I guess I’ll be waiting a long time.

    This is not directly related to the BBC but it concerns bias and might be of interest.

    I was intrigued by a comment under this Breitbart article:

    Brexit Party and Lib Dems Grapple for Westminster First Place as Voters Abandon Tories, Labour

    “This poll is manipulated, BS! I know, because I am YouGov member, and was a participant!
    On the question of who you would vote for in the next General Election, Brexit Party was not an option. You had to select ‘OTHER’, and it then gave you more options including CUKS, Brexit Party, etc.”

    Now Breitbart comments tend to be just one notch above YouTube comments, so I’m wary, and decided to join YouGov myself to see what happens. The application process includes many questions on a variety of subjects, one of which is “How did you vote in the EU Election”. “The Brexit Party” was not an option, I had to tick the “Other” box. This lends credence to the Breitbart comment, above.

    Looking forward to taking part in the first YouGov poll.

      Helen Richardson,

      Well, to mangle an old saying, there are lies, damn lies and then there are polls.

      I recall that some US polls before the US elections had Donald Trump as a no-hoper.

      And everyone and his dog was sure that labor had the Aussie elections won by a mile.

      It’s really a hopeful sign that The Brexit Party can do so well on a skewed poll like that one.

    I’ve been thinking about my personal way forward in relation to use of the MSM . I’ve been cutting down on most BBC current affairs and output generally ;often I find the level of bias beyond offence . I never buy newspapers, don’t pay or use Sky nor any of the other entertainment providers ( yet ).

    I help administer this site so I read the entries just in case any of them need ‘cleaning up ‘ – as you know – thankfully few do – so thank you .

    I’m going to put up the weekend thread now

      Fed, in much the same vane, I don’t subscribe to SLY or take the MSM news rags, infact stopped around the time of Bonking Boris in the Sun (late 80s) I think.
      As for the Beeb, well I’m still waiting for a letter and a visit, but to be fair they can go to hell as the last two weeks have hardened my already entrenched views as to their bias, anti British propaganda and general approach to normalising and promotion of everything I view as wrong, deviant and corrupt in society.

      And thanks for the continued good admin work on the site. It’s an oasis of sanity.

      Pre judging the words someone is going to use on the basis of past comments is pretty shallow fare .

      Surely it gives opportunity to explain or justify – if such a thing is possible .

      But to just denounce and withdraw an invitation does reflect something about our time . Perhaps it’s a side effect of the internet being forever there .

      If people who are doctors do this sort of thing what hope for those lower down on the moral high ground ?

      Sometimes I think it’s a kind of rolling circus where someone says they disapprove of something and then a mindless bandwagon of virtue gets going leading to individuals just badged as toxic . There is no one able to stop it once it gets going ,

      TR is obviously the model for this . It can only be a matter of time for those who run the internet to
      Remove thought and opinion with which it does not agree – which puts sites like this – with no constitutional freedom of speech to defend it – well and truly on the Target List .

        “constitutional freedom of speech”

        It’s never going to happen – that boat has sailed.

        It’s another benefit of being inclusive (even to those who wish us harm).

    CBI leader Carolyn Fairbairn, worth a look at her on Wikipedia.
    A more typical globalist, elitist and ‘anywhere’ in the world type of person it would be hard to find.
    Also owns posh hotel in France, 454€ per night. Perhaps this is why she wishes to remain as close to the EU as possible. There is always a grubby little self interest lurking in the swamp these people inhabit.

    Now we have Adina Campbell, who talks to two wimmin, one of whom has anti-Trump views. No men about, it seems…
    Adina says there will be protests. Costs. etc etc
