    So it’s ok for the little Khant to call the leader of our greatest ally and trading partner a fascist, but not for Trump to call Khant a terrible mayor and a loser?


    • taffman says:

      Khant thinks he is our Prime Minister while our so called ‘government’ lets him get away with it .

    Have we got a Navy ?


  3. StewGreen says:

    Is it the “Deranged BBC ” now ?
    or “Deranged hatemongering BBC ” ?


  4. Celtic_Mist says:

    I think the BBC ‘invented’ this mysterious guy because he obviously isn’t a Trump supporter and google can’t find him!

    /Daniel Mcelhinney from Trump UK/

    Regarding the blimp on the Victoria Derbyshire programme, a BBC spokesman told MailOnline: ‘We featured a smaller version of the blimp in the studio to illustrate the protests due to take place and highlight one of the points of controversy about whether the blimp should be allowed to fly.

    ‘It appeared as part of an interview with protestor Anna Vickerstaff who is one of the organisers behind the blimp and Daniel Mcelhinney from Trump UK, a group of people who support the president.

    ‘Given the widespread protests across the UK at Trump’s state visit, it’s appropriate to be covering this topic.’



  5. Celtic_Mist says:

    So, I’m going ahead with a complaint!


  6. Celtic_Mist says:

    Mcilhiney argued the case for Trump quite well, however, I suspect that he was simply used to facilitate a debate that would allow the BBC to claim that they weren’t biased. On the other hand he may be a shill (pretending to be something he’s not)


  7. vlad says:

    The 3 political pygmies Cable, Corbyn and Bercow turn down their invitation to the Palace banquet to snub the mighty Trump.

    I’m sure he will have been devastated – if he noticed.


    • Demon says:

      Admittedly, Cable, Bercow, Corbyn, Nugee, Lucas, Khan are the sort of people I would shun sharing a dinner with. They are vile, odious, slimy individuals. Trump has got away with having to up with that s*** shower, lucky Donald.


      • Helen Richardson says:

        Reminds me of the rude relatives who you feel obliged to invite to a wedding, secretly hoping they will decline, making room for the friends you wanted in the first place.

        Who’d want to sit next to that lot?


    • tarien says:

      It is not Trump those unworthies are snubbuing but her Majesty the Queen and her Government and indeed the loyal people of this once proud nation. A really disgraceful performance by the rabble because that is all one can call such utter rudeness to the Queen, not to Donald Trump but to the Presidency of the USA.


  8. Guest Who says:

    BBC Today Programme

    “It was a love fest.”

    American broadcaster Christopher Ruddy was at last night’s state banquet and says the Trumps were impressed



    Just Nick being Nick.


    • Guest Who says:

      And now…

      “We hear from a friend of Donald Trump that last night’s banquet was a “love fest” but shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry makes severe criticism of the American president.”

      Inarticulate creeps.


  9. Annunaki says:

    Just been showing my wife the Normandy landings and the fighting towards, and the liberation, of Paris this morning from FASCISM.

    Makes me even more angry at our muzzie mayor calling The American President a fascist, on behalf of all his voters who ran away to seek asylum instead of fighting for their country and think they can come over here and browbeat us

  11. Deborah says:

    On Sunday evening Countryfile had one of its hard hitting items led by Tom Heap about how much land is owned by a very few large landowners. He hinted that they didn’t care for the land but was unable to provide any evidence. It all seemed a bit odd as having said there are some large landowners in this country and then having a couple of young Marxists speaking who said the same, the whole items fizzled to a halt. Mr D and I thought it was just a bit of trouble stirring by the BBC.

    But today I read in the Dail Mail (not the most reliable of on-line papers I admit but it is free) that Labour have just brought out their report called ‘Land for the Many’. Not least is their plan to scrap Council Tax and replace it with a tax on gardens. There would be no single person discount as widows would be expected to share their house with as many Momentum types as wanted to move in, until they either died or handed the house over to the Labour supporters. (Sadly, I don’t think that within a short time I will be over-exaggerating this part). But for anyone with a pension this whole plan would be catastrophic as the value of their pension would crash, no good selling their house to raise some money to live on, because house prices will have crashed etc etc.

    So what was Countryfile doing with their item by Tom Heap? It is obvious that it was planned to pave the way for the Labour report. What collusion went on between the makers of the programme and the Labour Party that this item was shown?
    Countyfile is no longer about farming but as well as its overindulgence in diversity it no longer hides its propaganda value to the Left.


    • Not Gwent says:

      “…until they either died or handed the house over to the Labour supporters…”

      I expect this is what Corbyn means when he says he wants to bring the country together.


    • Up2snuff says:

      Deborah, that is kinda daft coming from the Labour Party that bolted Climate Change onto Anthropogenic Global Warming and prior to that forced the Conservatives into regressive taxation firstly with the Council Tax itself but after that, in a bidding war ‘to present Green credentials’ into introducing another regressive tax, the Fuel Duty Escalator.

      The environmental importance of gardens has been highlighted more recently with regard to water and flooding, flowers & bee (and other pollinators) populations as well as birds and other wildlife. Then there’s the mental & physical health well-being aspects of gardens.

      Does the Labour Party really want to tax gardens? They should ask the important ‘What if’ questions first. Taxation always has a downside.

      The beauty of the Community Charge that Labour so violently opposed was that it really only had very minor downsides and then only two, really only one, that I can recall. The potential upsides of a tax like that are massive.

      Private Eye was correct to provide a blank front page to list Theresa May’s achievements in office although there were one, perhaps two, although I cannot think of the second one! Ummmhh … . No, it won’t come to mind now.

      After her Downing Street speech about fairness on Day Zero, she was advised to tackle unfair taxation: Fuel Duties (there is a timebomb ticking away there) and Council Tax.

      Immediate changes could (and should in my view) have been made by Theresa May and Philip Hammond but were left undone. Sadly, ignoring dealing with that second Tax has already caused massive damage to our High Streets. The future damage of the Fuel Duties is yet to hit the Conservative Party.

      That is, if the Conservative Party is still in existence, and with a chance of governing in coalition, in about five to ten years time.


    • fakenewswatcher says:

      Deborah – I too, was startled when Countryfile sounded explicitly political instead of focusing on cattle and such. I watched Tom Heap carefully for any sign of discomfort, but he was clearly happy to do political propaganda in his slot. You could hear the envy (and the call to arms?) dripping from every sentence.
      ‘Overindulgence in diversity’. That’s not new, so perhaps I shouldn’t have been surprised when the programme ‘came out’.


      • Beltane says:

        No point in being startled by anything ‘Steaming’ Heap fronts. He’s deeply prejudiced along precisely the right lines for the Countryfile production team. Add some ‘ethnic’ bloodlines and he’d get top billing.


      • cromwell says:

        Deborah, I don’t watch countryfile so was intregried by your post on Labour report on LAND FOR THE MANY, I’m shocked to think how far these Marxists are thinking. I have read the report and all I can hear is how much £££ this or that will bring in. Shocking, I felt as if I was reading a Stalinest report on how to bring in as much money as possible.If our foe Corbyn and his band of soap Dodgers get into downing street this country is doomed. I would recommend everyone to read this report and tell family and friends who own property or land to read this report carefully.


        • Up2snuff says:

          cromwell, wrong question: how much £££ this or that will bring in?

          Question should be: what may be done in response to this?

          Answer is: likelihood of building on large gardens, extensions being built into small ones, wildlife under threat, greater risk of flooding, risk to health of removal of exercise & other well-being from gardens, increased warming from brick, concrete and glass, and – if you believe CO2 causes Global Warming – less CO2 absorption from plants & trees and cooling from lawns.

          There are other downsides that can really only be tested by doing it: if you have a large garden that is big enough to build another house within, and that is done, you then get extra utility demand, various other demands: Benefits, Local Authority services, transport demands and you get a likely reduction in house values. That last can affect all sorts of things, including downsizing and pension boosting.

          I cannot believe that the Labour Party would really be so stupid as to tax gardens.

          But then …. the Conservatives and Limp Non-Dems, as well as the other Parties, do not exactly show the way in smart thinking.


          • Scroblene says:

            “Answer is: likelihood of building on large gardens, extensions being built into small ones,”

            Bit like Southall then!


        • Not Gwent says:

          “I felt as if I was reading a Stalinest report”

          I didn’t dare post this for thinking I’d seem like a reactionary fool. I wonder how many have read first hand accounts about the ruling mentality, what it meant for Mr Ordinary Voter, in pre 1990s Eastern Europe? I wonder what they teach in schools?


          • Banania says:

            How long before people with spare bedrooms will have people billeted on them? Or before they are banished to a corner of their own house, and some one is put in charge, with other families being moved in?


    • ObiWan says:

      This report is the same old resentful communist tendencies once again surfacing, courtesy of the comrades in Momentum. The report reads like a soft reboot of one of communism’s oldest aims: smash the evil landlords, steal their property and abolish private land and property ownership. This time, sending the cadres out into the countryside to ‘redistribute’ the Kulak’s property and land might not go down too well with the aspirant middle-classes, so a craftier approach is required. Something subtle, but which will nevertheless deliver much the same desired outcome.

      Make no mistake, behind the countless new ‘local’ committees the comrades propose creating in this report lies the dead hand of the (socialist) state seizing assets and abolishing individual property rights. They hide behind all the usual deceptive buzzwords and, with comrade (George) Monbiot aboard, leading the charge as a co-author of this wretched propaganda, it’s little wonder we find Labour pimping out something it calls ‘climate change’ to justify its proposed state theft of other people’s property and land.

      We should all pay attention to this subterfuge. This is how communism always works; carefully, slyly, so as not to scare the horses. Never speaking clearly, deliberately muddying the waters to sow confusion and uncertainty. But it’s aims remain clear. In the end it will amount to Expropriation Without Compensation – just like Stalin, just like Mao, Pol Pot and just like the communist ANC in South Africa today (aided by their comrades in the EFF).

        What I want to know is what will happen to Corbyn’s allotment?


      • vesnadog says:


        ” This time, sending the cadres out into the countryside to ‘redistribute’ the Kulak’s property and land ”

        Except for those chunks of land which many of those anarchists/squatters protesters parents own and let their Woodstock type hippy weed growing friends use for their very own monthly glastonbury and who love to rip up other peoples land/farm gates but strangely avoid ripping their own parents up as it will be ruining their own future inheritances which we avoid paying by insisting to mom and dad you must save enough money up for us. They usually fall for it, so why not the rest of the year and the next..

        Otherwise, fly-tip anywhere you want guys – the working class bin men can pick it up at the tax payers expense.

        Besides, why should we middle to upper class yutts find a job – we would have no time for traveling the globe going to the many Climate Change conferences (must be hot and sunny though)


  12. Annunaki says:

    Probably off on a country walk this afternoon, it will, as always be absolutely free of those who are recruited on countryfile as presenters, funny that


  13. sjs says:

    The BBC have shown the Trump blimp for the last two days, now they are delighted to feature the new statue of the President sitting on a toilet tweeting, in Trafalgar Square, presumably with the blessing of our wonderful Muslin major.Why are they so keen to share this with us and not the riots in Paris ,that have been going on for months ? Everyone who detests the BBC should complain on a daily basis, it only takes 5 minutes, flood their complaints department! I have just cancelled my TV license, their coverage of the POTUS visit is the last straw for me.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Sjs congratulations on cancelling the tv licence . Bin any letters you get from the ‘investigators ‘ . Never speak to a tv inspector – there is no legal requirement and avoid the state broadcaster like more and more good people are doing . Avoid Sky too.


      • JimS says:

        “Bin any letters you get from the ‘investigators ‘ . ”

        I used to do that but just lately I have started collecting them, unread, unopened. For one it is quite facinating to see the variety of forms that they come in and to get a little thrill when a new or rare variety pops through the door. Secondly I might one day getting around to taking legal action as surely this is a form of harassment and it helps to have evidence.

        So far:
        4 off “Will you be in” (brown envelope, three to ‘legal occupier’ one to me).
        3 off “local investigation active” (white envelope, two to ‘legal occupier’ one to me).
        1 off “investigation opened” (white envelope, ‘legal occupier’)
        1 off “ringed calendar” (white envelope, ‘legal occupier’)
        1 off “we will be visting your area soon” (small white envelope, ‘legal occupier’)
        1 off plain envelope (red envelope, ‘legal occupier’)

        Eight varieties! That’s eight times more than varieties of BBC comedians!


        • Rob in Cheshire says:

          At least they have dropped all that bollocks about “detector vans”.


        • Dystopian says:

          I wonder how many trees have been cut down just to supply paper for BBC threatograms, while they keep banging on about the environment.


      • andyjsnape says:

        when i cancelled my TV licence – i had threatening letters due to the fact that i had not told the tv licensing either way whether i needed a licence or not. Was told an inspector would call due to the fact of not telling them – Letters went in the bin.

        Imagine a window salesman sending you a letter stating we haven’t heard from you and we will send someone around to your property to find out why! f off


    • vlad says:

      Well done sjs but what took you so long?


  14. Fedup2 says:

    The people at the BBC who put the schedules together have a bit of a sense of humour .

    For instance – they are running WW2 British war films each afternoon this week. Now – which film do you think they’ll show on the 6th of June ?
    Yes – you guessed it – Dunkirk .


  15. Peter Sausages says:

    I am going to puke, that horrific fat scum Thornbury is all over the BBC, welcome Donald, I want my license fee back!


    • Dover Sentry says:

      Piers Morgan on ITV this morning gave Emily Thornberry a tough time.

      He pointed out that Obama sent more illegals and children back to Mexico than Trump has done in the same period. He asked her if she was aware of that and also could she quote the figures?

      She super-blustered and her face became contorted.

      Morgan also pointed out that Obama was a regular bomb dropper on Arab lands and maintained Guantanamo Bay when it was supposed to have been closed down. Where was the Left outrage?

      The point he was making was that there was silence from the Left when Obama had a State visit but outrage when Trump visits.

      A Labour politician would never have had such examination by the BBC. They reserve their efforts for Conservatives and The Brexit Party.



      • Beltane says:

        ‘She super-blustered and her face became contorted.’
        From birth, actually Dover.


        • Scroblene says:

          Super-blustered face-contorted, Nugee-halitosis…

          Why does an old banger always turn up when a serious discussion about new cars is wanted? Rewrite ‘Chitty Chitty bang bang’ immediately!

          I really don’t want to see a perfect replica of the bbc’s blimp on my screen, it makes the room go all sneery…

          (That’s a bit tame Scrobs, try and be a little more precise next time please)!


    • vlad says:

      Sausages – You’re still paying it? Shame on you.


  16. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    In my teen years students would be out protesting for free speech and democracy.
    Now, students are out protesting against free speech (don’t want to offend anybody ((unless they are right wing)))and against democracy (Brexit)

    Teenagers were against the establishment but now are all supporting the far left such as every media tv/radio station.

    Our (in the ‘60’s) teenagers and students didn’t have to mask up and dress all in black like jihadi ninjas.
    They are now rebelling against all the things they wanted.

    Bbc radio Newcastle giving an impartial Vox pop on Trumps visit which means all those played hated Trump and the one Trump ‘supporter’ they played said the ‘it’s the office not the man’ and ‘I don’t agree with him but…’

    I’m sick of people saying it’s taking us such a long time to get a brexit deal so how can a new team get one.
    The reason it’s taking so long is the ‘negotiators’ are all remainers who dearly want to stay as are the cabinet and most of Parliament.
    Give the job to the leavers and it will be quickly resolved one way or another.


  17. Fiter says:

    Tottenham are approaching the government to ask for a rematch as it obviously wasn’t a true representation of the peoples wishes that Liverpool won the Champions League last night.
    A spokesman for parliament has said it could be a valid point so it will now be discussed for 3 or 4 years with several votes in the house.
    Following that there may be a rematch.
    There may even be a vote to decide if a Liverpool win should be taken off them, and if it is it will then be debated again and possibly another vote.
    Liverpool are reported as saying a win is a win, the result was clear.
    The BBC are saying that obviously, Liverpool must be uneducated, biggotted, racists who dont respect democracy by winning the game without due respect to the people of Britain.


  18. Beltane says:

    What a coincidence that the same people in the UK who so strongly objected to the US election result – evidently preferring a thoroughly dishonest, specious and mendacious woman – are the same that so vociferously object to the democratic result of the referendum. And bandy the word ‘fascist’ about as if they had any actual knowledge and understanding of its meaning.


  19. Guest Who says:

    Somehow, like ‘QC’ or ‘FBPE’, you know that when ‘BBC’ gets n there things will kick off.


  20. Guest Who says:

    So long as they leave their politics at the studio door.

    Time for Fran and and Tony to ‘tour’ a long way away again.

  21. sjs says:

    Fedup2, Thanks for the advice, I am expecting the nasty letters to start arriving this week.


  22. Jeff says:

    You know, the only other world leader who has excited so much unwarranted ferment among the left, has been our own Maggie Thatcher. It’s something that only occurred to me while watching the BBC documentary about her. He must be doing something right!

    I watched (a little of) Newsnight yesterday evening. The ghastly Emily Makesmesick was grinning and gurning her way through the interviews. This seems to be her preferred technique. These hacks adopt a very particular sneer whenever they have to interview someone who isn’t a progressive leftoid. It’s painful to watch.
    She came out with a real peach when talking to an American representative. “Trump is very unpopular over here.” she told her. Unpopular with whom? It was a sweeping statement that says far more about the Beeb’s insularity and bias than anything else.
    These people live in a sort of metropolitan elite bubble, where any ideas they don’t approve of get mocked, ridiculed and sneered at. This isn’t journalism. This isn’t reporting. This is blatant black propaganda, pure and simple.
    A very long time ago Newsnight used to be worth looking at. It was hard hitting and erudite.
    Now it’s like a bad fourth form panto…


    • theisland says:

      Is it just me or are the hysterical Trump detractors being even sillier than usual?
      And of course, they are in large part the same group as the Remainers.
      Silly but dangerous – and well funded.

      The answer? Laugh at them more and cut off their funds.


    • tarien says:

      Well said Jeff. The quicker we can shut down the BBC and other socialist/communist media fronts and remove the absolute leftist attitude from our viewing the better for us all, particularly the blood pressure!


  23. tarien says:

    Never felt more ashamed of the attitude from the wretched media headed by BBC and of those people making complete arses of themselves in their putrid efforts to insult the President of the USA who was invited by our Queen and her Government. No matter what may be thought about Donald Trump, he is nevertheless the President of the United States of America and deserves our nations respect not its lack of respect, rudeness, and dammed impertinence.
    As for the present Mayor of London, who should never have been allowed to be Mayor of London-well suspect that all first nation Brits would rather have Boris Johnson back as Mayor of London.


    • Fedup2 says:

      An America pointed out that it’s nice that the snowflake kidults can have a jolly demo on the streets of Londonistan on the anniversary of The Chinese state mass murders in Tina man square .

      I thought the BBC reaction would be ‘ and now the weather ‘ – the brief seems to be – be nice to the Chinese and nasty to America

      Mad times


  24. BigBrotherCorporation says:

    I see the BBC have Greta Thurnberg, the child sacrifice on the altar of the cult of global warming, back on the agenda again.


    • Not Gwent says:

      Either Thurnberg or Begum?

      State Broadcaster likes its poster girls.


  25. Fedup2 says:

    The 33 year old stabbed in the leg during / after the spurs Liverpool soccer game last Saturday has died . ( it happened in tottenhamistan ).
    I’m sure both the local MP – Lammy and the mayor of London – will cease all comments on the visit of POTUS in order to support the family of the victim and find the murderer …. right ?


  26. Fedup2 says:

    The Emir of Londonistan had a nice interview with the BBC Tuesday lunchtime where he compared POTUS to an eleven year old . Then the Emir goes off on supporting the members of his evil ‘religion ‘ when POTUS decided to stop some Muslims going into the USA on terrorism prevention reasons .

    I didn’t want to look up the Emir on twitter but apparently his pakistani parents came to the UK under one of those lefty immigration acts in 1968 .

    The emirs ‘ legal career was built suing the police and supporting his ethnic comrades .

    Interestingly no mention about the latest Londoner stabbed to death in his city who died today . But really would one expect to hear anything about that from an ex human rights shyster like him .


  27. Beltane says:

    Fraud Heseltine, our favourite peer and statesman, appeared in the series on Maggie Thatcher in BBC2 last night. Throughout he referred to her as ‘Margaret’ as if to suggest that they were on good terms and implying that his valuable advice was regularly requested and provided. He seems to have overlooked his petulant resignation from her cabinet, constantly talking down to ‘the grocer’s daughter’ and generally behaving as the raving snob and parvenu he always has been. Along with Ken Clarke he shares top honours in pointlessness and obsolescence.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Always wondered where Heseltine got his money from – wiki says he was a ‘property developer ‘ but he behaves as though his family came over with William the Frenchy .

      The BBC still loves him – they even dug the Patten up the other day – two men so full of themselves as to tell us what to think and do .
      2 days to the Peterborough bi election ….


      • Beltane says:

        ‘Property developer’ covers a multitude of sins, but there’s not much detail on any properties or their development.
        Most of his money comes from publishing – having founded the Haymarket Press – and as we know, with examples like Robert Maxwell, Beaverbrook and Rupert Murdoch to follow, he must have earned every penny through consummate skill and total integrity.


  28. Terminal Moraine says:

    In beebland, even desserts are anti-Trump. Diplomatic correspondent James Landale (Eton, The Times, BBC) says:

    “Her Majesty’s decision to put Eton Mess on the menu at the banquet has been seen by some as a tongue in cheek warning for a president who arrived telling newspapers his favourite Old Etonian, Boris Johnson, would be an “excellent choice” to replace Theresa May as prime minister. All deniable, all open to accusation of over-interpretation.”

    But ‘deniable and over-interpreted’ is the beating heart of the BBC. They should make it their strapline, it would look nice on the letterheads.


    • gb123 says:

      Reminds me of CNN when they went ballistic over President Trump having two scoops of ice cream when everyone else got one. It seems as if the muck stream media has some kind of dessert fetish.

    We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.

    Do you remember a time long long ago when you couldn’t turn the news on without hearing a ‘hero freedom fighter ‘ from Change UK busily explaining why they know better that 17 million voters ?

    Well – today it seems that Change UK is to ‘split ‘ some ‘independent ‘ and others giving up politics to become Liberal Democrats.
    Soubry can drown her troubles as usual …and strangely not so much coverage on the BBC now …


    • Doobster78 says:

      But, Gavin Esler told us that Change UK were the future of British Politics and it was just what the public wanted and he knows EVERYTHING !!! What a chump he is !!! LOL

      ‘and others giving up politics to become Liberal Democrats’

      Thanks Fedup, that made me laugh :0)


      • Scroblene says:

        And me, Rob!

        The bad news is that BT are removing two phone boxes from ‘The Pantiles’ (a normally pleasant place in Tunbridge Wells), because of complaints that the Lib Dems are continually holding their meetings in them, and disrupting normal drinkers in the cafes and nearby pubs.

        Where on earth will they go now!

    Really, what Worldwide value is a Prime Minister or, even a US President for that matter within the scheme of things as they currenty are?
    The Big Hand in the Sky or, ‘Mr Big’ if you prefer, that ultimately controls the media and the Broadcasters Worldwide, sense a people’s revolt in the air. So they actively fan the flames. This includes giving examples of utter disrespect to the public so they can ‘follow their lead’ when presented with similar situations in the real World. If broadcaster/media show hostility and disrespect to interviewees or subjects, so can you in your daily life. Gently, but very gently leading by the nose. But what has happened over the last, oh, three or four years to make Mr Big demand his/her controlled minions in the media ramp up a couple of gears? Indeed currently searching for the overdrive switch. Could it be the faltering of the drive to reach western World Globalist/Communist domination? Results not there? Indeed, now slipping away rapidly. US: President Trump; UK: Brexit & Nigel; EU: Resistance is springing up all over the western World. They both loathe and fear, ‘the people’.
    I’ve got a simplistic view of all this. I think back to Newton’s Third Law i.e. For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action. ‘Fraid humans are not exempt. All our lives are controlled by those same essential principles.
    So what’s next?
    Well, if you taunt people enough they will eventually react. Is this the current plan of Mr Big et al.? Push rebellion as the only option left? Quelled needless to say by police/military. All those lovely Bureaucratic Communists seeking the EU Army. A bit late now, maybe, with all that’s happening. If rebellion is quelled successfully: Hey Presto! you’ve got immediate control and this is what they seek. Done and dusted all in one. Nobody can tell me that Macron has not already made preparations for the Yellow Vest situation slipping too far in the wrong direction.

    Did anyone guess right?


  38. StewGreen says:

    BBC running with the story of the Japanese funeral parlour worker about the work rule she must wear high heels.
    Yes I’m with her, I wouldn’t do a job where I had to wear them.
    When I lived in Japan in was the rule in almost all jobs where women were front of house or sales, but in lots of other jobs women wore normal shoes.

    AFAIK it’s to with that women signal they are fertile, and that sales women would make better sales when they are fertile whether the customer is male or female.
    Adopting dress that falsely signals she is fertile, means she increases her sales all the time.
    It’s something people could have a serious discussion about, instead of schreeching.


  39. StewGreen says:

    The Reith lecturer this year is a retired judge and not a complete beeboid, and often said sensible things.
    He said that unless the ECHR changes we should pull out.
    cos it judging in a political way by applying a definition of democratic to the one he would use.
    ie they say democracy is doing what the politicians say
    rather than what the people say.

    However there was something interesting the other day, with insomnia I switched on the radio and it was his first lecture thst I had already heard.
    There was a Climate question to which he gave a very smooth reply.
    followed by a school girl asking about BAME.
    It struck me on the second listening that it was rigged , his reply was smooth cos probably had warning of question in advance
    ..And of course typical BBC to run with a question about BAME rights.


  40. StewGreen says:

    Yeh when I think of “racial equality” I think of Sadiq
    when I think of “sexual equality” I think of Sadiq
    .. and his segregated mosque crowds


    • StewGreen says:

      In his ‘I am the big man’ visits to Pakistan did Sadiq push women’s rights ?


    • Thoughtful says:

      I’d suggest if you want Feminism you DO support Sadiq Khan !

      Who the hell in thier right minds wants Feminism, with its undeniable links with Islamism?

      It seeks the over throw of what it calls the ‘patriarchy’ i.e. white men and seeks to replace it with a Sharia controlled Islamic state, in which these deluded nutters seem to think women will be liberated.

      Cast your mind back to the great grope of Cologne or any other outrage against women in which the Feminists have refused to condemn the Muslims, or support the women victims, but taken the other path instead.

      As Milo once obseved “would you rather your daughter had feminism or cancer” It really is that bad.


      • Lucy Pevensey says:

        True. The fact is women in the Western world and some other parts ARE liberated. The female supremacists (feminists) are not happy with that. If they own up to that fact they have nothing further to complain about.


  41. StewGreen says:

    When in a glass house


    • StewGreen says:

      When Arab leaders were visiting did Sadiq do his big women’s rights lobbying then ?


    • StewGreen says:

      “everywhere” says Sadiq
      … abortion is not legal in Northern Ireland and Isle of Man
      ..not noticed Sadiq protesting about that.

    Theresa May, standing beside President Trump, has just told the world’s media that she always keeps her word. I do beg to differ:

    Mr Trump also said that he couldn’t understand how a country (Mexico) could let millions of people pass through it with the sole objective of entering the USA illegally. He was told that since his threat of tariffs against Mexico, the country is now doing something to deal with the problem.
    I couldn’t help but draw a parallel with how France does the same to the UK by letting hundreds of thousands (at least) of illegal immigrants cross it’s border with the objective of getting to the UK by illegal means.
    If only the UK had a real leader and negotiator.


    • Dystopian says:

      “We leave on the 29th March” (maybe she wasn’t actually lying with that one re Tilbrook’s case).
      Oh at least she can dance her way out to this one…
      “Enough is enough (is enough) I can’t go on I can’t go on no no no….”


  45. Thoughtful says:

    Doesn’t seem to be much of a turn out either for the anti Trump protest last night (estimate 300 nutters) or even for Corbyns speech this afternoon.

    Corbyns speech was disturbing to say the least, remeniscent of one of the Fuhrers rants. He went on and on about how everything was the fault of the hated whites and the minorities were all somehow victims of white oppression.
    How diversity was the most important thing in the world, and all the time there was that underlying number of Islamic activists waiting to have their say. Indeed the number of Muslims who have been involved with all this has caught my eye over recent days.

    All in all the anti Trump protests have been a colossal failure and Corbyn has been made to look silly. Do not forget though, Hitler was made to look silly, and he was every bit as dangerous despite all that.


  46. Fedup2 says:

    The Presidential press conference – all those beeboids present but none got a question . If only it could always be like that .

    I was trying to imagine POTUS negotiating with Brussels -they really wouldn’t stand a chance – and he’d just walk . As the UK should have done if it still had a spine .


  47. The General says:

    Corby delivering his ranting Marxist speech with a photographer behind him. No doubt ready to photograph any dissenter who might think of ‘donating’ an egg or even milk shake to him. I am sure an eager police force would be ready to take action on any such information and evidence provided to them.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Field Marshall – there is footage on twitter of a lone chap in favour of POTUS being attacked by a Far Left mob with a copper doing …. nothing … even when the victim is hit with liquid ….. vile .

      You won’t see that on the BBC

    Hmm what changes in the population have we seen over last 10 years ? “enriching” is the term is it not?

    Sex diseases on the rise in England

    London (CNN) New research shows that cases of diseases more commonly associated with the Victorian era are increasing in the UK. Since 2010, hospital visits for scarlet fever, malnutrition, whooping cough and gout are up 3,000 per year, representing a 52% increase.

    Two dead today in London from 2 separate mugging murders at the weekend . Both victims white and over 30

    The BBC’s treasure trove of ideas, The Guardian carries an article today Trumpeting Jeremy Corby’s Appearance at the protest rally, almost along the lines of it’s what he has waited for all his career sort of thing, hating the USA and Trump as he does..

    The journalist then goes on to explain how wonderful this event is for Corbyn saying in typical student union demo reporter style…

    “The revoltingness of Donald Trump is one of the few things on which virtually all factions of the Labour party still agree – and resistance has been a bonding experience for Britons more generally. From the student who mowed a giant penis into a meadow under his flight path to the Duchess of Cornwall being caught winking behind his back, every indignity heaped on Trump is a joy. How could Corbyn not be on the march”

    I’m one of those “Britons” mentioned and the pathetic soap-box protest babbling “resistance” from Corbyn was far from bonding for me so the reporter probably was referring to the “bonding” of all the other reporters in the Guardian offices rather than Britons generally, plus I am pretty sure that a student mowing a penis and a royal winking to someone isn’t likely to make President Trump run away any time soon….

    I bet the reporter goes home thinking “Another wonderful day at the office, another hammer-blow for the revolution and a great day for free speech”


    ps. I listened to the Press Conference and was surprised how statesmanlike and humorous Trump was, and Mrs May also almost charming.

    Gritted teeth in Journo-la-la-land I bet
