      Doobster,
      “If you would like to confiscate his passport and keep Donald Trump across the pond, please feel free.”
      We would welcome that above all else. Get him into No 10 with Nigel next door and we would never look back!
      Russell Drew, your loss would be our gain! Problem is the majority of Americans would demand his return ASAP having already glimpsed what the ‘DD’s: Destructive Democrats have to offer…………….

    TWATO…the bias is out and running
    President Trump ‘apparently’ continued insults on Sadiq Kahn..as he got off plane and making a big point of him mocking him on his height…
    Notice the use of word ‘apparently’ not a fact but put in to make it seem true and no mention of the names and mocking Sadick Khan has thrown at POTUS..all a bit one sided

    Last week Gordon Brown came out with his brand of intolerant unity and now it’s Owen Jones’ turn in a rally to protest against Trump:

    —”It’s important we join the dots here…we’re protesting against what he represents… it’s so important with Farage and the rise of the Brexit party, to take to the streets, united, whatever our backgrounds, whatever our difference on this issue or that, it needs to be a cross section of British society…”

    Given that the new diktat says diversity of culture, race and religion only enhances a population — why doesn’t this also apply to diversity of politics or philosophy? We’re often told how terrible things are; Britain is split, it’s too polarised, politics is fractious. Why are we not celebrating these differences of view? I thought diversity was our strength?

    Jones wants us to unite, “whatever our difference on this issue or that” but how much heterogeneity can a homogeneous group withstand? Who decides what’s diverse (good) and what’s disunited (bad)?

    I wish we had a press that was willing to push on just what kind of grand vision they’re talking about, because it doesn’t take much prodding for the ‘unity’ ideology to collapse like a house of cards.

      This dusky lady had no idea about the numbers of illegals dealt with under the Obama regime . I’m not sure who she is or why she keeps turning up on political programmes …but she should have been able to deal with that question if she was of any value .

      She’ll probably write a column in the guardian about being bullied by a whitee man and then get a job on wimmin s hour ….

      I suspect the white PPE bubble people feel reassured in themselves that they know someone who isn’t white . A better man than me could have felt sorry for her as Piers tore her a new hole – but I just thought – why put such a lightweight on national TV – ? An insult to the viewer .

      Also – UK passport holders digging into the immigration policies of a country 5000 miles away … when we can’t even sort out the English Channel – that’s a bit rich too…

    The bbc lunchtime news on one was a trashy assemblage/collage, footage of President Trump’s arrival, interspersed with interviews with ‘protestors’, constant criticisms of the President, mention of past ‘gaffes’, random wimmin interviewed to tell us what they thought, all the usual supects, like Sopel, assuring us about how ‘controversial’ the visit was, etc etc
    It is apparently not possible for them to run coherent footage for any length of time, without a constant confetti of irrelevant and irritating interruptions. Was that really put together by professional and impartial editors?
    I think not…

      I haven’t commented for quite a while, mainly because I just refuse to listen to any of the drivel the BBC puts out as “News” these days. But I’ve recently returned from abroad and I thought I would just see for myself if it was as bad as I remembered. The lunchtime FakeNoos on BBC1 was staggeringly, unbelievably, disastrously worse!!!

      Hard to know where to start, though @fakenewswatcher has summed it up perfectly in “trashy assemblage”. Pictures of the President arriving with his wife and being greeted by the Queen, constantly undermined by the BBC’s selective suggestions for the most inflammatory “diplomatic gaffe” – overlooking the fact that running insults from the national broadcaster could also be considered diplomatically unacceptable. Insults from Sadiq Khan apparently fine; ripostes from Trump beyond the pale. Demonstrators allowed to spill their anti-Trump bile with no interruption or challenge to justify their branding of him as “far right” or “rascist”; one woman straight out of central casting was showcased saying it was only sensible to protest when Trump’s government was being mean to migrants on the Mexican border. Hello…any reporter want to put an awkwardly logical question in there? No?

      Then a mention of the US Ambassador, and an attempt to paint him as dangerously undiplomatic too after some Twitter archaeology in which he dared to mention Our Sacred NHS. Now, Ambassador Johnson has been tweeting constantly in the run-up the the D Day commemorations about the incredible joint achievements of and bonds between our countries. But naturally the BBC can’t mention that…

      It is utterly bonkers. The smug self-righteousness over the half-baked onesidedness. The precedence of feelings over facts. The lack of proper journalism and interviews with major players. Childish and divisive. I had to turn it off. The one thing I hope is that more and more normal viewers are finding this nonsense to be so far removed from reality that it’s almost funny.

        Jane,

        The BBC reporters aren’t fit to untie the high heels of most US TV/Radio reporters/correspondents.

        I admire the professionalism and honesty of their reporting. Sharp minded, slick and highly informed of whoever they speak about. No insults unlike the many “insults-a-plenty” BBC reporters.

        Immature journalists are always recognisable by how often they Insult people.

          Quite right, vesna. The BBC is currently a national embarrassment. They seem to have ditched all accepted rules of journalism. Do they realise how much they are trashing their own reputation?

          I was once a journalist, and am shocked at the personal insults and pitiful standards of reporting here. We used to say that journalists wrote for other journalists, and it seems clear from the equally dire Channel 4 News and Sky that they are competing among themselves to be the shriekiest, most reactionary, most fashionably right-on activists, no doubt with an eye on the jobs market.

          Meanwhile, more informed viewers take a step back and scratch heads as the child-commentators stage their tantrums. All we can do is walk away until they cry themselves out. (And laugh as they wonder why audiences are falling so rapidly. And no, it’s not all to do with alternative media.)

            PS. Not sure about “all” US correspondents. CNN have a terminal case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, for example. But Fox’s Sean Hannity is a star for his old-fashioned approach to gathering exclusive insights and presenting them as coherent and persuasive reports. He would be far too old-school for the UK.

              I’ll agree with you there. CNN I think is becoming USAs version of BBC News.

        James, Siddick Khan should really show some balls, but all he ever does is bang on about things he really should try and understand – he’s paid enough ferchrissakes!

        I thought he was supposed to be a ‘lawyer’, but maybe I’m wrong, but is that a good thing to admit when they charge £120.00 an hour for bullshit?

        Londoners are being let down so badly by this silly little guy, he’s not up to the job of running a capital city, he’s just a little bloke, torn between his inadequacies and ‘duty’ to some sort of leftie cause, and lets the side down at every turn!

        Luckily, I don’t have to endure his antics in my once-loved capital city, and he can piddle around with his childish antics and toss himself off on the leftie media response, but one thing for certain is, that American companies will be watching all this wank-fest-by-lefties, and the result will be tears before bedtime!

        President Trump is very welcome here. I like his aggression on behalf of his people, whether they agree or not, he bats for them, and we just don’t need twonks like soddick chan being an absolute childish twat in the eyes of the majority of loyal Brits!

    It’s not just the Mayor of London who has been behaving like a child, but the pathetic, biased BBC.
    Victoria Derbyshire presented her coverage of Trump’s visit in front of the BBC’s own baby blimp balloon of the President – utterly disgraceful from our state broadcaster.
    And then she summarised the twitter spat between Trump and Khan by stating that the President had “insulted” Khan about his height, but saying that Khan had “criticised” Trump for being a “21st century fascist”.
    Interesting choice of words, eh? One throws insults, the other just criticises.
    So Khan is talking about what exactly? Fascism.
    Does the BBC bother to explain what fascism actually is, to provide context and perhaps even “fact check” for its viewers. No. Can’t be arsed, just runs with it.
    And all this in the week when Trump is here to honour our Allied servicemen and women who defeated fascism and enabled idiots like Victoria Derbyshire the freedom to broadcast slanderous claims with impugnity.

            Judging by the quality of bus drivers in my neck of the woods I’m guessing his parents were not formally married … if you get my drift .

      Is the greatest issue – whether to use enemy telephone equipment ? Or nonsense about climate change ?

        You make it sound as though I’m defending the BBC . Anything but . Now that the state broadcaster is showing itself to be so rabidly of one view – at the moment of course – anti President Trump – it fails the test of legitimacy .

        At the moment you can play the game if you want . The game is to spot any beeboid saying anything positive about President Trump .

        It’s akin to any positive comment about a full brexit – like – er – the one the dumb stupid thick I’ll educated voters keep voting for after having been influenced in their millions by ‘foreign money ‘.

    Actually they do. I spent a few years living in the U.S. They have unemployment benefit, disability allowance, food stamps, state hospitals and various other benefits in place for those who fall on hard times. It’s just that their system is limited and not as easily gamed as our overblown socialist model. They expect you to work if you are able but it’s wrong to say they have no welfare at all.

    That was until I read these three seperate posts on Brietbart which helped clarify my thoughts on the matter. If you like me had, or have mixed feelings about this issue, then I think these comments ‘hit the nail on the head’. See what you think:

    “Muslims carrying signs that say, “Say No to Sexualisation of children”.
    Unless it’s little girls being married off to grown men.
    Got it.”

    “Or white and Sikh girls handed around to rape, by Pakistani scum….”

      Sorry to say, Cassandra, but it’s the parents who are the problem here. They’re just brainwashed for their entire livelihoods, and that sort of mindset that is making the UK such a cesspit of unpleasantness – an issue we Brits have never wanted, and cannot accept, mainly because we believe in our country, not some faffing ‘religion’.

      Brits go out and ‘do things’, they thrive on it, they mainly want to better themselves and make a stand.

      True Brits aren’t victims ( well some are, because they like the bennies), but the majority are up at 5:30am, getting the kids’ breakfasts and lunches, getting in the vans and cars and earning the money for next week.

      Some time ago, I saw an article in some rag, where a chap working for himself, started at around 7:00am, and always noticed the skivers next door were safely tucked up in their beds, waiting for their handouts.

If anyone has the stomach for it : ISBN 978-1-78606-513-1 “Please let me Go” from one victim, some of the bastards were phoning their wives whilst raping and giving victims to their male kids as birthday presents, and even picking victims up taking them out of school in their taxis during school hours, they and their families are still threatening the victims after prosecution, this shows muslims’ complete hatred of anyone outside of their sick cult and their disdain for the sexualisation rape and exploitation of anyone from the country that has had the grace to accept them, and indeed their hatred of us as a culture that has given many of them asylum

        I have absolutely no sympathy whatsoever for ANY of their complaints and never ever will, for if they ever had the upper hand we would cease to exist as a culture, it would be another genocide, as many of their cult are undertaking around the world TODAY that is the level of tolerance they show to others as any look at the hell holes they come from clearly shows.

        The complete and utter hypocrisy of the Birmingham protests along with their silence about the many many racist rape gangs from their own religion and the thousands of childrens lives ruined is nothing less than astonishing to behold and a warning for us all.

    I heard the hilarious interview between Emma Barnett and Sebastian Gorka [written up by Is the BBC biased?]

    Barnett is someone out for a news ‘hook’, always looking for a soundbite that will make the news bulletin, she’s a point scorer not a journalist, she has no interest in genuinely exploring issues and informing us about them….she is out to make a mark…she is the Trump of the airwaves you might say.

    Gorka wasn’t having any of it and made it quite clear what he thought of Barnett’s cheap shots and attempts to score off Trump with lazy, simplistic and prejudiced comment….that’s comment not fact. Whilst she attacked Trump for calling Sadiq Khan a loser she failed to mention Khan had, the day before, called Trump a fascist….bit of an omission eh?

    Barnett hates people challenging her and she always bites back hard and refuses to accept any criticism at all, and of course has the last say….however she met her match a couple of weeks ago when Ann Widdecombe was on the show and in similar fashion to Gorka put Barnett to flight…and Barnett crumbled….Widdecombe had her bang to rights and Barnett had nowhere to go except to react with grudging acceptance of Widdecombe’s comments….if only more people would challenge the BBC’s finest in this way maybe, just maybe we might start getting some real news and a realistic view of the world rather than the BBC’s very warped and distorted one.

    Laughed as Barnett signed off from the Gorka interview with ‘I’m going to turn to a proper journalist now’…as I said just intent on point scoring and unwilling to gracefully accept defeat. She is appallingly bad and has a history of misquoting interviewees on important issues…Barnett’s misinterpetation then gets spread far and wide as the news bulletins go for her soundbite fake news and print the legend as ‘fact’.

    The BBC in general has been appalling in equal measure as it reports on Trump’s visit and allows anti-Trumpers to come on and label him a racist, a sexual predator, an Islamophobe, a mysoginist, a white supremacist, a fascist. Haven’t heard one BBC presenter try to challenge these comments.

    Trump was attacked for any etiquette faux pas he may have made during the last visit….odd the BBC don’t mention Obama’s infamous one as he kept talking during the national anthem…

    Then again the list is long for the things they attack Trump for doing that Obama has done as well…and Clinton…she being a fully signed up supporter of ‘a wall’ and the control of illegal migration…the BBC of course not finding the time to compare and contrast.

    The BBC does find time however to constantly demonise Trump for daring to criticise European countires for not meeting their spending obligations to Nato.

    The trouble is Trump is absolutely right…a fact recognised by many…just not the BBC. Who said this?….

    ‘“I want to take this opportunity to commend Greece for being one of the five NATO allies that spends 2 percent of GDP on defense, a goal that we have consistently set but not everybody has met. Greece has done this even during difficult economic times. If Greece can meet this NATO commitment, all our NATO allies should be able to do so.’

    Yes, it was Obama.

    Oh…a headline in The Guardian for the sainted one…

    Is Barack Obama right to criticise Nato’s free riders? Of course he is.

    ‘The US’s European allies have become comfortably well-off and lazy and neglected the basics of self-defence’

    Read the BBC’s latest and you’ll note how they try to massage the message and suggest the US isn’t at all concerned about Europe anyway….the BBC shows it doesn’t undrstad what Nato is for and its role in the world…it seems to think it is there solely to defend Europe in Europe…it forgets the first war Nato fought was Korea….it fights around the world to defend certain values and freedoms…not ‘Europe’….it does consist of the US, Canada and Turkey after all not just European countries…and the biggest payer is the US.

    However….the BBC tries to use smoke and mirrors to make you think the US doesn’t really care about Europe….here it gives us a Nato figure saying the US provides 69.3% of Nato’s budget…but then tries to dismiss that…

    c01bde0d-1b6a-46be-9a78-4a1f04e7efa0

    ‘The point to remember is the US is a global military superpower, so has defence commitments not only in Europe but around the world.

    One report by the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) estimated that direct spending by the US on European security accounted for less than 6% of its total defence outlay.’

    You have to remember that the commitment to Nato is to spend 2% of your GDP on defence spending…not specifically on Nato…the BBC is being less than honest by saying the US spends a mere 6% of its defence budget on European security as if Nato and Europe are an after-thought…..the whole defence budget is ‘Nato’ if you like.

    Trouble is those global outlays over and above Nato spending also defend Europe and its values….defending Japan, Australia and the Pacific region against Chinese or Russian aggression keeps us safer here as well. These things are not separate issues.

    It’s odd that in the BBC’s long report on Nato spending they miss out the fact that Germany isn’t just not meeting its spending obligations it has decided to reduce its contributions and is claiming this shows commitment…lol…more important than hard cash…

    ‘Germany says it will abandon its NATO spending commitments and invest even less than promised, sparking US anger after Trump criticised European allies for expecting a free ride’
    ‘Germany’s military spending is set to fall below its NATO targets, in the latest flashpoint in Berlin’s long-running row with Washington.

    The latest German budget plans, revealed on Monday, will see defence spending drop well below the two per cent of GDP expected from NATO members.

    U.S. ambassador Richard Grenell said the cuts were a ‘worrisome signal’, while President Donald Trump has repeatedly accused Germany of freeloading on U.S. military might.

    But German Chancellor Angela Merkel rejected the U.S. criticism, saying Germany will not cut foreign aid to raise military spending.’

    Why might the BBC not only forget to mention Obama’s attack on Europe’s failure to pay their way but also miss out a highly significant and relevant report illustrating just that?

    Odd.

    The Emma Barnett Show (Yes, who is this bint?) was pontificating about nasty ‘Trump’ on the wireless.
    The acerbic diatribe against the leader of the Free World was vomited continuously by this vile creature.

    However she met her match with Seb Gorka, it does not last long!
    Unbelievable behaviour from a radio ‘cutie’…. who some of us have to pay for.

        As I said Monday – really surprised that the BBC had Dr Gorka on at all as he won’t be turned over . I suppose the female beeboid will hide behind the tired ‘mysogeny ‘ badge so frequently used when girls don’t get their way these days ( see also ‘racism ‘).

    A bit off topic, and hope this wasn’t posted before (from 1 June), but I was furious reading this utter piece of crap, maquerading as journalism:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-48462030

    on the female billionaire “novelist”, who just so happens to be Jeff Bezos ex-wife! Only in paragraph 46, do we learn about her divorce and that 35 billion of her worth of 35.6 billion, came from her divorce. You really have to read this garbage, to realise just how low & dishonest the Beeb are, to further their femi-nazi agenda, it’s pitifully juvenile and nauseating. If I was an actual female writer, I’d be livid.

      “By most accounts, Ms Bezos was a key part of the start up – driving Mr Bezos to Seattle while he worked on the business plan, and becoming the company’s first accountant.

      In the years that followed Amazon took off and the couple also became parents to four children.”

      After five years of trading at a loss Amazon declared a profit of $5M on turnover of $1Billion, i.e. 0.5%. Wow, it really ‘took off’ didn’t it!
