    It’s amazing the interest clearly stirred by this, which at first I had not appreciated was something to do with football.

          That encapsulates my whole point Doobster. I have nothing against women’s football, I used to watch bits of it ten years ago or so.
          But the relentless overhyping nowadays of women’s football by our state broadcaster is just ridiculous, and to be honest I think millions of people in this country are seeing right through it.
          13-0 the other night. Are you kidding me. Quite frankly an embarrassing spectacle from what I can gather.
          Growing up al beeb had men’s golf, motor sport and cricket to name a few. They’ve pissed those all up the wall and are left with sh*te like the Women’s World Cup to hang their hat on.
          No sympathy whatsoever ✌🏼

    The good news from Germany: the socialist SPD, in the past one of the ‘big two’, the party of Willie Brandt, has an approval rating of only 11% in the latest opinion polls. (Despite that, the German President and e.g. Foreign Minister are SPD. ‘Representative Democracy’?)
    The bad news: The Greens have over 20%. Were they concerned only with environmental matters, one could ignore them. A central policy pillar, however, is to encourage immigration for the purpose of diversity. A warning for the UK there, somewhere?
    Worst of all: Merkel, who relies on the SPD to stay afloat, and seems to have been in charge forever, is still around for another two years…

    Some intensive googling reveals a trail of links backwards from the current Channel 4 attack on farming re ammonia release.

    Didn’t take long to find that the story was provided to C4 by a non-gov organisation The Bureau of Investigative Journalism who in turn have links to an outfit called Tactical Tech who in turn are part funded by an outfit called Open Society Foundation who are headed up by Mr Soros and Co. who also fund a large campaign to keep the UK in the EU….

    All of this is both scary and nauseating.

    It seems possible that a large chunk of our “free” News Media is being influenced and possibly funded on a massive scale by such tactics and probably does a lot to explain the deep-rooted bias they therefore project.

    I believe our government should be pressured to investigate these connections in depth in the name of democracy.

        ‘Noel Gallagher has hit out at Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in a colourful interview where he despaired at the state of modern British politics.

        The rock star, who previously said he would rather reform Oasis than see “lunatic” Jeremy Corbyn elected, now branded him a “f***ing student debater, f***ing captain fishy craggy old f***ing donkey, f*** off”. He also described shadow home secretary Diane Abbott as “the face of f***ing buffoonery”.

        “They talk pipe-smoking communist nonsense, do you know what I mean? I think the role of any politician in the world is to be forward thinking, and modern, and contemporary – looking forward,” he told the Manchester Evening News..,

        I agree with a lot of what he says, but the comments really seem to have hit a nerve with the Indy type snowflakes.. hilarious.

      @Digg Open Society Foundation as partially connected to Soros ?
      Actually Twitter claims the ammonia project is a joint investigation Guardian, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism and Channel 4

      (BTW The Guardian article says “Animals farmed is supported by
      Open Philanthropy Project
      “Our main funders are Cari Tuna and Dustin Moskovitz, a co-founder of Facebook and Asana.”)

      I see what you are doing is trying to dismiss an argument very quickly by saying the source is crap
      But real life is not so simple cos that is a logical fallacy
      cos any argument stands on its own feet whatever the motivations of the messenger.
      The theory that the emperor has no clothes is not valueless just cos the small boy makes it.
      Even if the small boy is funded by Soros ..or Big Oil or whoever
      (This source fallacy is called the Genetic Fallacy
      .. it doesn’t matter if George Soros himself invented a theory, that doesn’t mean it it is BS)

      helps me decide how much time
      If a messenger had deceived me so much in the past that helps me decide how much time I will invest in checking
      eg if the source is the Indy or Guardian then I am not going to invest any time , rather I’ll wait until another source gives a take)
      So this Ammonia story I’ll not waste too much time on

      There is a logical fallacy in their wording for a start.
      “3,000 deaths”
      .. death is a BS and unscientific metric… cos we all die
      They probably mean someone dies at 86 instead of 87
      That is not worth spending billions for that
      They should use the metric Quality Adjusted Life Years saved

        The report I guess purports to show using MODELLING that so many life years will be saved if we reduce cattle ammonia to zero.

        #1 Well actually humanity has experience of times and places where cattle ammonia close to zero
        .. like 1,000 years ago in the UK or tropical countries today
        In neither of those situations is life expectancy averaging 100 so reducing ammonia is not a #1 lifespan enhancer.
        Your ancestors lived in times with less ammonia and guess what they had shorter lifespans.

        #2 Always ask if a story is PR not news
        Here there so many factors that are suspicious like the hyperbolic unscientific language etc. And there are a lot of drivers towards that hyperbole ..eg the anti-meat people, the #Green hedgefund industry etc. political points scoring.
        I have seen past Guardian reports on other topics in the Guardian that have turned out in time to have big errors
        .. but the Guardian didn’t rush to correct, cos actually it was all a PR job in the first place

      “Tory leadership: Rival candidates say there must be ‘no coronation'”

      Why the sudden concern about the Conservative Party members?
      Most Conservative MPs, most MPs of all parties have just ignored their members.

      Because they (the MPs) know best, we did not know what we were voting for, words written on buses. All the lying Remainbollocks which has rained down on us 24/7/365 X 3.

      What MPs are concerned about is democracy actually happening. Brexit actually happening.
      All their tiny little feet are swollen because when things are not going their way they stamp them like Rumpelstiltskin. Poor dears. Correction, poor us, for having only grade Z candidates to vote for.

    The UK has TV channels just aimed at the ethnic-Nigerian/African or ethnic-Indian audience so yes the ad reflects that audience.
    But as a national advert its deliberate *inverted racism*, and not the #equality of reflecting the TV audience

      SG
      Not a problem.
      Because when Nigel presents the Manifesto, it will contain a commitment to greatly reduce tax avoidance and tax evasion. I am here referring to tax avoidance by Amazon, Apple, Microsoft etc; not Joe the plumber who gets £10 in cash for fixing a dripping tap.

      All foreign Companies with more than 100 employees, will require a licence to trade in the UK. The licence application form will require the Company to undertake to pay such taxes as are required of UK based businesses. Any problems with tax collection, the Brexit Government will seize all assets and jail senior staff concerned.

      The application form will also refer to anti British activity. When Tesco, Lidl, or whichever large white hating company, is the first to be taken over by the Brexit Government, without compensation to the shareholders. When the CEO is sentenced to 20 years without parole. Pour encourager les autres, effectively. Every time the new Brexit Chancellor shouts jump all the chief accountants will be required to show the bruise on their heads where they collided with the ceiling.

      Let us really drain the filthy swamp and permanently emasculate and render the swamp dwellers impotent .

    Watched the ITV News earlier this evening and it was pretty much what you’d expect – reports on the Lincolnshire floods, London violence, Hong Kong protests etc. and newsreader Lucrezia Millarini talking to Paul Brand (political correspondent and boy reporter for Le Petit Vingtieme) about the Tory leadership contest.
    Switch over to BBC One (Freeview 101 HD) to catch the end of BBC News, and then immediately switch over again (Freeview 1) to see BBC London News with Assad Ahmed (despite its vast budget the Beeb still can’t broadcast the London bulletins in HD).
    Now with BBC News you don’t get what you might reasonably expect – I thought they’d start with the three killings in London – nope, the headline is the Grenfell protest march. They even included footage of Jeremy Corbyn and Stormzy on last night’s march to mark the 2nd anniversary.
    The killings in London came next in the running order – except they only mentioned the two from yesterday afternoon. Even the next report, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s hunger strike, seemed to get more attention, including a video interview with her husband.
    Did I say you don’t get what you’d expect from BBC News? On reflection, you get exactly what you’d expect.

        theleftwilleatitself – When the West invites Third World populations into their societies, it gets the crime and urban squalor of Lagos, Mogadishu, Mumbai and Mexico City. It cannot be otherwise. This new population in our capital city is completely different to indigenous Brits in terms of intelligence, character and temperament. They are filthy, feckless, chaotic, low-IQ, criminally-minded barbarians and parasites; they do not have the self-discipline to defer gratification or the civic conscience that engenders a respect for the rule of law; they cannot and do not want to integrate; they reject the terms “English” or “British” but now appear to be happy calling themselves “Londoners”. This is a sad colonisation of a great city, once perhaps the most civilised city ever to have existed on Earth. Utterly ruined by the suicidal policies of our traitorous political class. The only way to prevent the whole country going the same way is by ceasing immigration altogether and implementing a policy of repatriation – which I cannot imagine any political party ever adopting. I am afraid this country is doomed.

    Message
    Boris Johnson

    Mayor of London

    It is an honour to welcome all delegates to London for the 9th World
    Islamic Economic Forum in what is an historic first for a city outside
    the Islamic world. I am proud that London is a fantastically diverse
    city, boasting not just a great cultural and ethnic mix but also a great
    mix of ages too. Londoners from all backgrounds contribute a huge
    amount to the capital’s culture and economy.
    The presence of WIEF in London recognises the UK’s position as a
    major centre of Islamic finance. Islamic finance is already playing
    a major role in shaping the economic and physical landscape
    of our capital city.

    The newly opened Shard, the extraordinary
    redevelopment of Battersea Power Station and the Olympic Village
    were paid for at least in part by Sharia- compliant finance.
    ,

    I also welcome the effort of the British Muslim community in bringing
    the World Islamic Economic Forum to London. My team have worked
    with the Muslim Council of Britain to bring this Forum to London,
    who has been a key delegation at WIEF since its inception.
    I want this to continue to work together to continue to strengthen
    London’s ties with the Islamic world, and develop a clear legacy
    of jobs and growth for Londoners from what promises to be a
    successful World Islamic Economic Forum.

      Boris is the most likely of the Tories to deliver something worthy of being called Brexit. Democracy will have triumphed after three long years in which it hung by a thread. A full Brexit will be a significant blow to the hegemony of the liberal global elite and will serve as an example to other nations trying to reassert their independence from supranational organisations.
      How long we can retain our sovereignty remains to be seen as the Remainer elite will still be doing everything they can to return to some sort of member ship of the EU. Any and all dirty tricks will be indulged in.
      If Boris wants to cement Our independence and protect the majority from the Remainer elite he should make abolition of the BBC his second priority after delivery of Brexit. There is no doubt that the BBC will be at the spearhead of the Remainers attempt to reverse Brexit.

        ” Any and all dirty tricks will be indulged in.”

        Deciding amongst themselves which business owners will be willing to commit their business to destruction and its staff to redundancy in their desperate efforts to stop Brexit from happening. I believe there are multitudes of British business owners who voted remain who would willing to let their companies go out of business – Soros having promised them financial help if and when Brexit is stopped.

        I believe these people are so desperate that they will do such things.

        You see, these people are so paranoid in winning this war for their EU buddies that they will stop at nothing in order to give the public the impression that “the mountains will fall on us” if we refuse to listen to their ranting lies.

    YOUR TAX MONEY

    The Home Secretary Sajid Javid said:

    The horrific events in New Zealand are a direct attack on the values of tolerance and freedom of worship that unite us all.

    Nobody should ever fear persecution of their faith and it’s vital we stand together to reject those who seek to spread hatred and divide us.

    I know many Muslim communities are feeling vulnerable and anxious. But they should seek comfort from knowing we are doing everything to tackle hate and extremism.

    That’s why we are doubling next year’s places of worship fund YOUR TAX MONEY– providing physical protection as well as peace of mind.

    In addition, the government will open a consultation with faith representatives and organisations including the Anti-Muslim Hatred Working Group,YOUR TAX MONEY Tell MAMA YOUR TAX MONEY, the Independent Advisory Group and other faith representatives and organisations, on improvements to existing policy to protect faith communities.

    Paying for the ROPE(r) that will HANG you.

    Places of worship, including mosques, will also benefit from a new £5 million fund over 3 years to provide protective security training to build on some of the positive work already happening in communities. This is in recognition that physical protective security is only part of the solution, and institutions, their staff and volunteers need to have security understanding to ensure the protective measures work effectively. We will engage closely with communities on the scope of this new scheme to ensure it meets the needs of all places of worship covering security. We will then undertake a competitive process to determine providers of the training and plan to start delivering in 2019 to 2020.

    I like this comment on HYS about the women’s world cup, I think it summed up BBC sports coverage very accurately:

    They have created their own world within which they travel the world, have the best of everything laid on & get to compete in the Olympics every 4 years.

    10/10 for creating this.

    0/10 for the football.

        BBC news – bias by omission

        The BBC radio news reports that … A ‘consultancy’ called ‘britainthinks’ has done a survey of british people ? Which shows the country is divided and it’s all nasty and miserable …..
        These days when ever I hear survey – I also hear -‘Project Fear & Soros “

        So I looked up this outfit – which turns out to be a lefty remain operation where the CEO writes for the Guardian and was a personal advisor to one Gordon Brown – can imagine how miserable that must have been ?

        Then I thought – it looks like Project Fear is getting more sophisticated in its’ message . Maybe all the shortage stuff will be replaced by talk of riots, insurrection , terrorism and that kind of stuff ?

        Obviously the BBC takes the survey without proper reference to the source – nor does it say that if the democratic mandate had been obeyed by the traitors in the two Houses of Parliament we d be out of the ReichEU and dealing with the consequences now . …..

        There is a pattern – last week the BBC used an outfit called ‘britainvotes’ for a survey result it liked . That turned out to be another one affiliated to labour remainers … but no mention of that at all.

          I did some market research recently and it has totally transformed my view of all these bs ‘surveys.’

          We all sat in a circle and anyone who disagreed with what they suggested had to justify their opinion to the group, creating huge social pressure to agree. We were also paid which made you feel you should just go along with what they wanted (nobody pays you to do a survey/research unless they want a certain result.) Also they did the survey at 7pm on a week day when we were all tired from work and wanted to get home! Any negative response required lengthy discussion whereas if you just agreed you got to leave earlier!

          They will use the results of this research (it was about a water company) to show the public unanimously supported their plans, when in reality we unanimously just wanted to grab our money and get home as soon as possible.

          But I was in a private meeting when someone speaking came out with it “the country is divided” and it has become a mantra that is heard everywhere, not just via the Beeb.

          I think there is a large element of wishful thinking in it. I even heard someone claim on R4 that ‘the (EU Referendum) vote was close’ on air on BBC R4 last week. I laughed. The speaker obviously knew nothing about the history of EC/EU referendums and the closeness of some of those other votes. These people hope our country is divided so that if it came to another vote, the Leave side would lose.

          I am not so sure about that.

            What is wrong with being divided? Division is there and is real. So much of our society works by expressing opposed opinions and deciding between them. Why is everybody using the word “binary”, assuming that it stands for something bad? I think people who go on about the country being divided are simply refusing to accept life as it is. We choose between different options, using the mechanisms provided and then join in accepting the result – or we used to.

    Vintage BBC race baiting: apparently more minorities are convicted of medical misconduct which is evidence of a vast racist conspiracy. To any sane person this might suggest that certain cultures are more likely to commit misconduct, lying and cheating in particular being a speciality of a certain ultra peaceful creed.

    It’s interesting how they only focus on certain unequal outcomes. I have noted with these vile fraud cases, with pensioners robbed of life savings, the perpetrators are so often diverse. I dread to think what the actual statistics are though I can’t imagine any Beeb cultist looking into this dreadful phenomenon.

    Another glaring unequal outcome is more women than men qualifying as doctors then at their peak working age they take years off then go part-time. Heaven knows how much it costs their beloved NHS but to even consider the issue – let alone deal with it – is thought crime. Once again political correctness is not merely an irritant but actually dangerous. How many lives could be saved with the extra billions if we just persuaded fewer women to become doctors?

    Of course medicine an extremely lucrative field where proportionately minorities hugely outnumber whites. When there is such a disparity in any other field this is the most obscene injustice that must be rectified as soon as possible but here is not only fine but it’s our fault if minorities are convicted of misconduct more often! You just can’t win.

    The bBBC have this clear strategy to dig out any statistics that support their narratives. It’s desperate stuff.
    This morning, we learn (shock, horror) that the General Medical Council put more black and asian doctors through their disciplinary procedure.
    If I heard and understood correctly 44% of complaints about black, and 40% about Asian doctors go through to disciplinary measures but the figure for white doctors is ‘only’ 29%.

    The fact that a THIRD of all doctors were quoted as being black /asian was completely glossed over.

    We are clearly supposed to feel outraged about the disciplinary statistics.
    Given that this nation is still predominantly white, and therefore so too presumably are the majority of patients, it clearly did not occur to the Far Left ‘investigative journalists’ in the BBC propaganda department that factors such as poor language and general communication skills, cultural misalignment over things like listening, understanding, empathy, all leading to incorrect diagnosis might just be a root cause of some of the disciplinaries, which British white doctors would of course in the main have the language and cultural skills to avoid.
    The BBC. World class in shit-stirring. Again.

    Guess what? Our far left Cultural Marxist State Broadcaster has, “obtained figures” from the General Medical Council that, to them, show racial discrimination. Seems that many more black and asian doctors receive complaints and are struck off than white doctors.
    To the BBC, who for political purposes, do not, ‘do’ balanced / objective in depth reporting, this is a sure sign that the GMC is biased against blacks and asians. ‘Critical Theory’ at work. It’s the typical dishonest style of reporting that has become the hallmark of BBC reporting and which is sickening to an increasing proportion of the public: they simply ‘drop’ a controversial piece of scant information on the public in the expectation that the public will ‘join the BBC’s dots’ and share their views and hence inbuilt bias. What is the BBC’s message then? Well, as normal for the BBC, whitey, bad and biased against good and competent black/asian doctors.
    All ‘headline’ stuff. But, if our, “Worlds Most Trusted” broadcaster had bothered to delve just a little deeper, they would, (shock, horror!) have likely discovered that the black/asian doctors imported by HMG are simply not up to the job. I suspect that had the BBC, “obtained figures” in respect of, for example, dentists or Chartered Engineers, they would probably find the same disparity. But no, they have to report this sort of news by ‘Lammifying’ it.

    Operation Mincemeat is in full swing…the meat being Boris. The BBC et al have fully mobilised and bashing Boris seems to have taken over all else…they were most upset, lol, when he wouldn’t play their game and give interviews and instead of interviewing his rivals they seemed more concerned about finding out what they thought of Boris and his ideas. It is extraordinary to see these Tories desperately trying to undermine Boris with melodramatic and sensationalist claims about him, his past and his abilities as possible PM. As Boris is likely to be the winner then these Tories are actually doing untold damage to the Tory Party and the government under Boris to further their own personal interests. Painting Boris as an incompetent egotist who doesn’t care about the country, a racist, an idiot, or even Hitler, just plays fully into the BBC’s own narrative and Boris will face an up-hill task should he become PM. We even have the extraordinary sound of Tory Remainer self-important blowhards telling us they will mount a coup against a Boris government…Rory Stewart claiming he will set up an alternate Parliament should Boris try to force through a no-deal and the treacherous Grieve and Clarke announcing that they will topple the government….of course no shock or outrage about this promised coup attempt from the BBC…

    ‘ Dominic Grieve said he would be prepared to vote down any government if it tried to act in defiance of parliament’s will.
    Clarke told the Observer he, too, would feel bound to do the same and thinks other Conservatives could follow suit, though he does not know how many. Tory MPs bringing down a Tory government? Would that not elevate the political crisis to new levels?

    “Well, I mean, if there’s no other way … then you’ve got to bring that government down,” Clarke said. “You can’t have somebody saying ‘I’m going to be a dictatorial president for a month or two and fix everything despite parliamentary disapproval.’

    Odd neither of them think anything of a Parliament that is riding roughshod over the wishes of a disapproving Public….odd that the BBC itself doesn’t ever raise the issue of a Parliament out of control and which is engaged in the smashing of democracy in this country….the BBC that is so outraged about the lack of democracy and public voices in other countries, such as Iran, that it trains journalists in those countries to undermine those despotic regimes…hence Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe ends up in an Iranian jail for subversion….however not seemingly at all concerned about the despotic nature of a Remain dominated Parliament, Lords and Media.

    Of course Boris is to blame for her plight having recklessly endangered her by saying in a Parliamentary committee meeting that she had been training journalists. On ‘Any Questions’ we had the self-admitted EU fanatic driven to despair and madness by Brexit, Matthew Parris, making an extraordinary and false claim that NZR had been on the brink of release and that Boris’ comment had slammed the brakes on that. Parris was allowed to get away with that total fabrication just as the BBC is happy to bring up his poisonous article in The Timeswhich was of course a toxic smear job…the same BBC that commissioned Parris to make a film in ‘praise’ and support of Theresa May during the election in 2017 knowing full well that he was an ardent Remainer…and of course the film was a complete hatchet job.

    Mark Mardell is little better having finally got Boris to answer some questions on Friday…the usual nonsense questions about burkhas and letter boxes and then the accusations about NZR….that ‘You [Boris] made a comment that was untrue….You didn’t do your homework and didn’t read your brief.’

    Hmmm…well Boris clearly had read his brief…because what he said was true as I’ll show in another post….NZR’s own CV admits she was training journalists…and the BBC boasts of how effective it was in stirring up the protests in Iran in 2009.

    The BBC lies about her role claiming she was just a filing clerk and her connections to the BBC’s Persian TV channel…but as said more on that later.

    We also have a constant tsunami of accusations against Boris for everything he has said in the past as a journalist and politician as well as bottom-trawling over his personal life…Matthew Parris shamelessly trying to shame him for having a love life and the number of children he has.

    Boris is always accused of not being a genuine Eurosceptic, opportunistically riding the Brexit bus only as a ploy to get into No10….hmmm…funny that decades of his journalism show he is a dedicated eurosceptic…..from 2003…

    ‘Europe: my part in its downfall
    Boris Johnson reflects on his role in the ERM crisis that left Britain intensely sceptical of Europe ‘

    He was accused of being that opportunist because he wrote out the case for both leaving and remaining in the EU before making his decision whether to support Brexit…surely that is the approach of a rational, measured and sensible person on such a major decision….not proof of a cynical opportunism.

    The burkha row? Muslim comedian Shiraz Mirza in 2006 in the lefty New Statesman compared them to…er…letterboxes…and bin bags and Darth Vader….the Islamist Warsi said they had no place in Britain, they were ‘not British’, originally they were for rich women who wanted to avoid too much contact with the plebs and were designed for Saudi Arabian deserts to keep out the sand….and Sadiq Khan..who said that every time he saw a women veiled he thought there must be something insidious going on inside her home to make her wear it.

    What about all those apparent Euromyths that Boris is accused of falsely peddling?

    The BBC’s rigorously accurate and impartial [lol] Reality Check tells us….‘He was challenged on a number of claims Reality Check’s taken issue with in the past. Just to be clear: Children under the age of eight are not banned from blowing up balloons in the EU; nor is there a ban on recycling teabags.

    Hmmmm…the BBC once reported…

    Tea bag ban over foot-and-mouth (BBC News Online, 7 January 2005)
    Householders have been told not to throw tea bags in waste meant for compost because it is a foot-and-mouth risk. Cardiff council said European regulations meant tea bags or vegetable peelings could not go in bins used to collect “green” waste. The rules, which affect all local councils, say kitchen waste is a danger because it may have been in contact with meat. The bins are composted and sold to the public. Until now, users have been able to include material such as coffee filters and vegetable peelings. But the authority is set to enforce EU laws designed to prevent a further outbreak of foot-and-mouth by excluding materials which may have been in contact with meat and milk…’

    And balloons? …Yes of course, children under 8 were banned from blowing up balloons….they had to have adult supervision at all times if they wanted to blow up a balloon…‘ Keep uninflated balloons from children’….from the EU’s own explanation….

    ‘”Warning! Children under eight years can choke or suffocate on uninflated or broken balloons. Adult supervision required. Keep uninflated balloons from children. Discard broken balloons at once.”‘

    How about his claim that Delors wanted an EU superstate with concentrated powers?…absolute piffle no? No. From the Guardian so it must be true….

    ‘Coming under fire from both sides: The latest plan for European economic and monetary union

    The three-stage outline plan for European economic and monetary union, unveiled here yesterday by the President of the European Commission, Mr Jacques Delors, is likely to come under fire from both full-blooded European federalists and those who fear it will give too much power to a small group of highly conservative central bankers.
    The fact that the recommendations of the Delors committee of bankers and monetary experts (which included Mr Leigh-Pemberton) offers no precise timetable for eventual economic and monetary union will not fool those in Whitehall who fear the report will fuel pressure for progress towards a supra-national system.

    He reported that the EU’s Berlaymont was to be demolished…it wasn’t in the end blown up…but it should have been. Boris was clearly reporting what he had been told….why is that evidence of his untrustworthiness…not as if the BBC has spent 3 years telling absolute porkers about Trump and Brexit has it?

    The BBC in 2001 told us aboout the sorry saga of the building…

    ‘ in 1991 around 3,000 workers had to be evacuated from the Berlaymont complex in the centre of Brussels after 1,400 tonnes of asbestos in the walls and ceilings began degrading and floating around the offices.
    Demolishing it would have had a detrimental effect on railways, roads and buildings nearby and would rob the city of a landmark so the Belgians decided to remove the asbestos and refurbish it. ‘

    In fact the building was all but ‘demolished’…its refurbishment was pretty much a replacement of the building in situ….the cost…625 million euros….hardly just a makeover eh?…this is what the contractors said needed to be done….

    ‘Project

    Berlaymont is the massive headquarters of the European Commission. Its surface is over 200.000m² and welcomes 2.700 employees and 700 visitors every day. The project included:

    Demolition of existing and building of new floors
    Building of new facades
    Complete replacement of technical equipment and new interior finishing
    Construction of new conference rooms

    Essentially an all-new building demolished and rebuilt bit by bit.

    The BBC attacks Boris for saying the EU was trying to determine the size and make-up of coffins….he wasn’t totally right but he wasn’t totally wrong…the EU did want to regulate how coffins were constructed…for transportation purposes…Boris’ point being that this should not be in the EU’s remit. However had he looked elsewhere you would find the EU successfully interfering in the funeral business despite claiming it didn’t and wasn’t changing the way funerals are conducted by regulating coffin construction…..‘In no way will it have any effect on actual funeral services in Member States.’….other EU edicts of course did effect how funerals are conducted…..

    ‘ Glasnevin crematorium conforms to (EU) guideline PG5 governing emissions from crematoria; and the cemetery confirms its non-acceptance of cardboard coffins for cremation. “They burn too quickly and give off too much smoke,” explains McCullough.’

    And….from the BBC lol…

    EU embalming fluid ban ‘to change funerals’
    ‘Grieving loved ones may no longer be able to pay their last respects to dead relatives when the EU bans the chemical in embalming fluid.

    That is the fear of Britain’s funeral directors after MEPs voted to restrict the use of formaldehyde.

    The EU says it will protect workers’ health and save lives.’

    Of course we now know that Boris is a homophobe and a misogynist. So Boris hates women? Thought the problem was more that he loves women. As for homophobe?

    Boris was all for gay marriage in 2012…

    ‘Boris Johnson: let same-sex couples enjoy the ‘happy state’ of marriage
    Same-sex couples should not be denied the “happy state” of marriage, Boris Johnson, the London Mayor, has said. ‘

    What about racism then…surely he’s a racist accused of saying this…

    ‘”What a relief it must be for Blair to get out of England. It is said that the Queen has come to love the Commonwealth, partly because it supplies her with regular cheering crowds of flag-waving piccaninnies,” he wrote, referring to African people as having “watermelon smiles.” ‘

    Well he did say that but his intent was a comment on the new colonialism, he was channelling his inner David Lammy and criticising the ‘white saviours’ who get off on on the sight of their black subjects cheering them on as they come to rescue them. Naturally the BBC hates this as it undermines their own racism….all these poor old black folks need our white, liberal help….same mindset as those the BBC accuse of racism looking upon the natives as an under-species in the old empire.

    And so on and so on…you can look at all the excitable claims of Boris’ lies, misrepresentations and dubious ethics and pick them steadily apart one by one until few are left. Boris is not perfect but he’s more honest and more principled than those who clamber onto the high ground and shout abuse at him whilst cheerfully forgetting their own lies, racism and shameless corruption of the Media.

      A toure de force – so I’m going to ramble without involving al beeb a so if you don’t want to know the Fedup Theory of The Near Future look away now ….

      …. ok … Alex Boris gets the job . A chat with Brussels . No movement – same sell out and €39 billion . Boris says no . Prep for no deal . ( the Iranians let the bbc spy out for ‘ good will ‘) .

      Labour does the numbers and tries for a no confidence vote with the connivance of Bercow and the likes of Grieve ,Clarke , Stewart Minor et al .

      Now this is the split – no confidence wins – general election ( no outcome prediction here )

      No confidence motion fails – we leave on 31 October – liberation Day . Boris declares 1 November a National Holiday . Brexit Party woo ed into the blue Tory fold …..

      For the record I don’t like Boris because of his bullingdon club background , lack of principles and the buffoon act . But if he grew horns and a tail and still got us out of the ReichEU he’d get my vote ( having regard to Nigel Farage )

      In summary – worst case – shortest government in history and A50 withdrawn . Corbyn McDonnel Government . We all start wearing the EU uniform and saluting its flag .

      Best case Boris gets us out – then we start the long awaited process of rolling back socialist institutions such as the State Broadcaster ..

    All you have to do is look at who is/was on Andrew Marr this morning. The whole BBC establishment team in full force all of whom are against Boris.

    The BBC are so obviously against Boris that you would have to have your head up a dark place not to see it…

    I have to say I have now virtually stopped watching BBC – in fact all I watch is Breakfast for a bit before watching Piers Morgan…One has to hope that the license fiasco will finally get them…

    It amazes me how many countryside, gardening and animal presenters are Black and Asian on the BBC when you rarely see anyone Black or Asian in the countryside let alone working there. On the other hand if there is a program where you would expect to find Black or Asian culture the presenter is almost always Black or Asian..Funny that.
    It is racism at it’s best…

    Just watched Sophie Ridge for the first time.

    She let the first interviewee talk uninterrupted during the whole interview so I thought I would be able to hear what they were saying for a change.
    First, Hilary Benn, a remainer was given lots of time to talk about his anti Brexit position.
    Second, remainer Tobias Elwood (?) given all the uninterrupted time to talk of his support for Uriah Heep (remain supporter) in the upcoming leadership challenge.
    Third, jo cox’s sister…this is what the fast forward button is for so I didn’t watch any of it.
    Fourth, Amber Rudd, the remainer, given lots of uninterrupted time on various topics including her remainer beliefs on Brexit.
    Finally, a leaver, Dominic Raab, interrupted more than all the others put together. On top of that, Ridge kept coming out with untruths which Raab slapped down.
    Raab done himself a power of good. On one challenge, Ridge listed 3 things he got wrong and Raab put her back in her box by telling her she was wrong on all 3 accounts and then explaining the truth to her.

    So then, this show turned out to be just like all the others, pro remain with soft questions and no interruptions but plenty of interruptions if the person being interviewed happened to be the leaver on the show.
    Of course, it was one leaver and the rest were all remainers.

    Muslim Women in Society : There some BBC progs where you can tell that people are listening cos there is a lot of discussion on Twitter
    but you can see sometimes there is nothing on Twitter cos the presenter is just talking to their own little bubble and people have stopped listening/watching.
    This morning I was listening to Radio Sheffield 8:45am and the presenter had brought on her mates to talk about Muslim Women in Society
    Her intro
    They are stereotyped as terrorist monster, or as oppressed

    First Guest (female Muslim barrister)
    MW are attacked from all sides
    on account of ethnicity/gender/belief
    That’s a triple penalty

    The media give us 3 prisms which MW are seen through
    – gender inequality
    – CSE (I guess she means families doing FGM and arranged marriage rather that groomingRaping gangs)
    – terrorism
    They are not treated as an individual

    Next guest female Muslim activist
    MW are stereotyped as stupid
    – MW are just normal people

    Presenter “There is a fear factor that has been escalated”
    All agreed
    Then the words “Far right” were thrown around
    Its “growing”

    First guest
    mentions the Rotherham case of Muslim Ahmad who was killed by two smackheads who shouted grooming gangs
    (.. So she is saying that Far right” tropes killed him )
    She said the “far right are hijacking peoples concerns by scapegoating Muslims whereas peoples actual problems are a result of (Tory) austerity

    The presenter then talked about “aspiration deficit” that Muslim women don’t see other people “like me” to copy
    To her credit the presenter did bring up the issue of people getting jobs just cos of “box ticking”, but her guests didn’t want to give ground on that

    So overall their narrative is poor Muslims are stereotyped, but the “far right” are an evil mass.
    As ever we should apply the Projection test
    : Is the way they see the media and “far right”
    .. the same as they the say the media and “far right” see Muslims

    The answer is yes they said the media “scapegoats for political point scoring, stereotypes as stupid/violent, uses tropes and portrays ALL Muslims as a growing threat, doesn’t treat as individuals ”
    Yet that was the same way this Radio Sheffield panel treated people they choose to label “far right”

    BTW The two guests names appear on a Social Workers Party promo about an event against Sarah Champion’s Sun article
    The tweet misquotes the Sun article to make it seem worse than it was.

    I really am so fed up with the BBC’s miserable sycophantic reports on migrants being rescued in the English Channel, climate change, Remainers, Asian Ramblers, sad looking Syrian children who are really 30 year old violent jihadist rapists, all the CBBC mixed race children, storytelling drag queens and Nadiya Hussain. Now the BBC is droning on about pop festivals being washed out because of the bad weather.
    So I thought of that depressing lady, Orla Guerin who reports in that strange montone on all the sad events in Syria and the up and coming hype on the Glastonbury Music Festival, and Viola!

      After the 1976 drought ‘experts’ on the BBC were prophesying major changes in Northern European agriculture with rice, millet and alfalfa becoming staple crops. 1977 proved to be one of the coldest and wettest on record – and the experts stayed silent.
      Just as 2018 echoed 1976, so 2019 is proving to be repeating history but, other than Harrabin – who knows where his financial security lies, at least for the present – where have all the other experts gone?

    Rory Stewart, bbc1 TV news tells us, is the ‘unlikely celebrity’ of the race for PM. Couldn’t quite catch the name of the heavily-accented presenter (Nick Eardley?)
    Anyway, the beeb and other MSM have tried hard all week TO MAKE him into a celebrity. A wee bit of hypocrisy there somewhere?
    No prizes for guessing why…
    Anyway, looking at comments on this site, it becomes clear that the bbc is -far from being impartial- an undisguised propaganda channel. Top project for the coming week will obviously be ‘get Boris’. Lotsa little snowflakes yelling: “when did you last use ….., Mr Johnson?” at every conceivable occasion.

      Another of those little BBC ironies. More than happy to inflict Nick Eardley’s version of English upon us but the alternative is unlikely to apply, I feel confident, to those presenting on BBC Scotland.
      On the other hand, at least his voice is rather more uplifting than Orla and Fergal. Were they both at Billy’s funeral I wonder?

    The BBC and MSM are hiding behind the age of the perps charged with these sorts of crimes but now I notice there is a tendency not to report the names of people charged, even if they are 18 or over.

          Hmm Channel4 is directly funded by advertising
          #1 Theres is a special EU rule that allows ad revenue to be topped up in future, say if ITV started doing discount advertising.
          (this is from 1991 http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-91-632_en.htm
          Kate Hoey posted something similar last night, and then deleted it , probably cos the date is old”)

          #2 The EU’s media programme, part of its Creative Europe scheme, has a more direct impact and invested €100m (£78m) into the UK’s audiovisual sector between 2007 and 2013. It provided funding for shows including BBC1’s Daphne du Maurier adaptation Jamaica Inn, the detective drama Hinterland, which aired on the BBC and the Welsh language channel S4C, and Sky Atlantic’s John Hurt thriller The Last Panthers.
          The media programme also part-funded children’s series such as Shaun the Sheep and Julia Donaldson’s Room on the Broom, and films including Todd Haynes’ Carol, Mike Leigh’s Mr Turner, and the acclaimed Amy Winehouse documentary Amy. //

    Pug v Rory Stewart

    Rory Stewart is barking….he may or may not, or he may or he may not work with Boris PM, a hero of Iraq and Afghanistan he knows what the secret to life, everything and Brexit is…be rude to everyone. He can also deliver Brexit….by not delivering brexit. The EU will never ever ever renegotiate he informs us sagely…so his answer is a people’s group huddle somewhere in middle england to decide on what deal to come up with…this will be presented to parliament to accept or bin and then presumably be presented to the EU as our all new negotiating position on Brexit…..er…but they won’t renegotiate will they?

    I might suggest Marr ask him if he is still puffing on the opium…..don’t know about unicorns but it’s entirely possible it’s dragons he’s chasing judging by his magical thinking.

    It shows how desperate the BBC and fellow Remain travellers, like Rory fanboy Ken Clarke, are as they take all this seriously and present it with a straight face.

    Rory is surely worth a whole programme of Deadringers all to himself.

    There can be only one…and I, Rory Stewart, am that One….

        I think Rory Stewart is a twerp. But as with a lot of upper class twits, Eton gave him a confident veneer that actually conceals his incompetence, fearful cautiousness and lack of good ideas. His only talent is for saying that something is too difficult or impossible to achieve and making this negative proposition sound wise and statesmanlike – which then provides him with a reason to congratulate himself when it transpires that nothing is actually achieved. Yet he is ambitious and has grandiose ideas about himself. He believes he did a great job in Iraq and Afghanistan and he fancies himself as a second Lawrence of Arabia. But his nickname is Florence of Belgravia.

    Stewart is what the Mail describes as an ‘Ultra Remainer’, and this now raises the question as to whether May neogitated Brexit in good faith whilst PM.

      Thoughtful -“…the question as to whether May negotiated Brexit in good faith…”
      I don’t believe there was ever any question about it.
      I posted on this site, from the start of her being PM, that she was an avid student of Merkel.
      And Merkel is a master (mistress) of deceit. I’ve been watching her closely ever since she took office. I was living in Germany when the wall came down, and observed the entire transformation of GDR politicians into ‘Westerners’ with great interest. She was the most interesting of the lot, even though she was initially hardly known at all.
      Once ensconced, she showed what ruthless ambition in politics was all about. She’s worth a study if that topic is of interest.
      Ms May is cut from a similar cloth, but alas for her -hadn’t quite acquired all the manipulative skills required for really good deceit.
      Also, Merkel had one other key skill: lying low for most of the time. Brexit flushed May out.
      Finally, May simply hasn’t had the German cheque book at her disposal, although she’s trying hard to make up for that at present.
