Weekend Open Thread 29 June 2019

The MSM campaign to ‘ get Boris ‘ trundles on . As a result I bet both candidates see MSM involvement – such as hustings – a mistake . This shows how the MSM has put its own personal view above the needs of the public .

    Thankfully I didn’t see the serious competition to Sinatra, the artist known as Stormzy, but it clearly wont be long before he joins his fellow race moaners June Sarpong and Afua Hirsch on the Pledge.

    God those two last night really raised my blood pressure, when they bang on about feminism and racist actions of us whites. If I could push a boat out to sea with all those that affect my health, then these 2 would be the first I’d manhandle to get on the boat.

      Did you watch this week’s Pledge ?
      .. ‘MP leads invader out of the room’ was something those 2 race-baitere are appalled about
      yet they show no sympathy with knife crime or groom/rape gang victims.

      @BRISSLES
      Ive stopped watching or listening to the BBC.(in fact the TV to be honest)
      Like you, I switch it on then almost immediately switch it off.If my relatives (now past on) could see the likes of Hirsch/Alibabaa on the TV today I dont know what they would think…..

      If I was to write how I feel on here in would constitute more than a ‘hate’ crime………

    a late TOADY Watch #4

    The 7a.m. News informed me of the trade deal that has taken twenty years to negotiate between the EU and Mercosur (a similar but four nation body) and this was presented as a success. EU trade commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom claimed it as such: ” It will save corporations €4billion.”

    Well, that’s wonderful. Twenty years negotiations (how much did that cost in CO2 and €?) to save £3.63bn divided between all the corporations within the EU. I don’t know whether those corporations will see any of that money as EU corporations don’t pay tariffs, the customer does. Will customers in the EU see any of that money? I very much doubt it. The EU, like any form of government, needs taxpayer money for its programmes and is said to be hungry for money at present.

    Cynical? Moi?

    I could not possibly comment.

    Craig at Is the BBC biased? writes…

    ’14 January 1989 was one of the darkest days of recent British history. It saw book-burning on the streets of Yorkshire as a result of a murderous religious edict from Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini against a British-Indian author. That edict (fatwa) resulted in the author being targeted for assassination, going into hiding and receiving round-the-clock police protection. People associated with publishing the book were attacked and even killed. People died in riots around the world. And latent extremism within the UK’s Muslim population became overt, with consequences that have echoed down the subsequent decades.

    Astonishingly, last night’s BBC One News at Ten reported the anniversary without mentioning the fatwa or the deaths that followed it.

    And, even more astonishingly, Will Gompertz’s piece proved to be nothing less than a celebration of the event, marking the wonderful moment when British Muslims got their voice.’

    Rang a bell when I read that…of course it is the typical BBC narrative to downplay or twist history to present a positive image of dark events and those the BBC wants to promote….in February we had the BBC’s Mobeen Azhar write a piece on Rushdie and of course we learn that ‘radicalisation’ of Muslims is all the fault of us, British society and the West….white liberals daring to criticise [lol…do they really?] Islam and our foreign policy are what turned peace loving, tolerant, diversity loving Muslims into jew-hating, women-hating, gay-hating, Western society hating head choppers. Rushdie gets the blame as the catalyst….extraordinary attempt to claim Islam was peace loving and tolerant before Rushdie.

    ‘”It all started with the publication of the Satanic Verses and how people pushed me away. That’s why I always say I am one of Rushdie’s children. I was radicalised by white liberals.”‘

    Yasmin Alibhai-Brown ‘came out’ as a Muslim after Salman Rushdie…interesting that isn’t it? Muslims seek to kill Rushide and anyone associated with him and the book and Brown thinks…yeah…I’m with that gang…the same atttitude that lead to ever more ‘devout’ Muslims appearing in the UK after 9/11…now why would Muslims do that unless they were ‘celebrating’ 9/11 and Muslim ‘success’ in attacking The West?…

    ‘Yasmin describes what followed as “a moment of awakening”. “I came out as a Muslim. I said: ‘I’m a Muslim. My mother’s Muslim. My family’s Muslim. The white liberals I worked with were shocked. They’d never seen me that way. It was inconvenient for them.”‘

    Not really ‘inconvenient’ for them…more likely they were shocked to see Brown coming out in support, and as a member of, what looks decidedly like a murderous death cult. Go figure.

      pug, seem to recall the Beeb recently doing a turgid R4 15 minute a day over 2 week series on Rushdie & the Fatwah after TWatO, the slot that used to have half-hour comedy, panel quizzes and comedy panel shows in it.

    I spent a lot of time in the car and listen to R4 & R5 when I can stomach it. It’s not just the bias that annoys me, but the quality. In their drive for inclusion and diversity, the standard has noticeably dropped over the last 5 years. Here’s just 3 examples in from the last two days.

    1) R4 Newsreader (female can’t remember who) pronounces Erdogan with a hard ‘g’ when it’s more like a ‘w’. You’d think with his prominence in the last few years she’d have known how to say it.

    2) R4 Front Row (female, sounded like a BAME) when talking about the new Apollo XI film says ‘Bazz’ Aldrin. I thought it might just be her accent, but later in the item she does say ‘Buzz’. You can just imagine the face palm by her producer :0)

    3) R5 Live – ‘and now over to Headingley for an update on Afghan v Pakistan’. So a young BAME reporter (who actually had a good, radio voice) informs us that the Afghans have just lost two quick wickets, then fails to mention the most important part, THE BLOODY SCORE! The guy in the studio didn’t notice so we’re none the wiser.

    Incidentally, there’s some footage of Afghan fans with no tickets forcing their way into Headingley and attacking a Pakistani fan. As we say in England, this is just not cricket. And the BBC keep banging on about the unique atmosphere we get at these sort of games – for once they’re right about that one.

    Here’s the footage

    The comments speak volumes about the sort of disputes we’ve imported into this country – unbelievable!

      RR, a few years ago I made the mistake of listening to the British GP on R5Live. Hamilton was at a critical place in the F1 Championship table. Think I came late to the race broadcast and it was in the closing stages. I really wanted to know the race placings.

      The commentators were jabbering constantly about Hamilton and where he was on the circuit (and some problems someone who was out had had with their car) as he was catching someone in front. They completely overlooked the need to regularly provide the listener with the race placings. For several laps I was none the wiser until the race was over.

      Henry Blofeld would have been appalled.

      He worked on the key radio principles: set the scene for the listener. Regularly give the essential facts, eg. who is batting, who is bowling and the score. Then, add further ‘colour’ and information for the listener, wherever they are.

    Just watched the women’s quarter final between Italy and the Netherlands. Not too bad. They played with a lot of spirit but made unforced errors that are almost nonexistent in the men’s game at international level. Also, finishing was poor, with shots going wide and shots with no oomph.

    The had a ‘cooling break’ for a few minutes to drink water once each half because the temp was about 33 degrees.

    Fouls were not as vicious and professional as in the men’s game.

    Funniest moment game when defenders were lining up to try to block a free kick near goal. I watched in astonishment as two or three of them put their hands down defending their crotches, obviously having seen the men do it. Someone must have said something because suddenly their hands were up over their breasts.

    I guess it’s fair to say that the women’s game will really have taken off when they automatically defend their breast during free kicks.

    Oddly no mention of the 100 million people murdered by Marxism, of the millions who starved to death and ate their children as soon as they died of malnutrition.

    Everything presented by a young lady who hasn’t troubled herself to read about Marxism, as then she would know that Marxists changed their minds on what Marxism means. It is no longer a battle between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie, but between those with power and those without power.

    So all those millions died for a theory that was poppycock, yet is still mindlessly presented by the BBC,

    The BBC would like to arrange your relationships for you….at present your preferences, in respect of a life partner [or one night stand whatever], are determined by a variety of cultural and social factors [probably drink] meaning that you do not know what you really like….you only like what you are ‘trained’ to like by society….and that is racist. You may like Swedish blondes but that is because you just haven’t been suitably familiarised with the under-rated beauty of a Black African lady. Once you come to see the merits of going ‘black’ you just won’t go back as you realise that you have been failed by society which hasn’t equiped you to properly value and appreciate the beauty of other races…and maybe sexes. Surely it is homophobic to think that you only like women…or red heads…or rich people…or clever people…or fat people..or people with glasses…or people who like dogs…..or people who drive Porsches…

    Clearly you cannot be trusted to make your own judgement and choice….the BBC will arrange for you to marry someone…maybe female, maybe not, maybe stupid, maybe not, maybe nice, witty and caring, maybe not. You must get past social and cultural stereotyping, the shallowness of looks, intelligence, personality and ability to live a successful and stable life and rear a family….no….that’s prejudice and bigotry….that fat little gay man who likes kicking dogs and sings Kylie Minogue songs all day long is the one we’ve selected for you….have a happy life now!

    Front Page Watch

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-the-papers-48808605 Am looking at the newspaper front pages late today. Not BBC, of course, but interesting info as to how they might think.

    1. Theresa May did herself no favours in that photo-op with Putin. She was praised by Beeboids on TOADY. Think Trump approaches folk with whom there is an ongoing conflict rather differently. May’s approach left her looking stupidly limp and gormless.

    2. Wish the MSM would leave the Duke & Duchess of Sussex alone to get on with their lives.

    3. The i has Janet Street Porter on ‘Why I hate Glastonbury’, maybe the Beeb could learn a thing or two, and same again for JustRemainIn Webb who has the nerve to write about democracy. I think the Democrats the front page trails are for in his article are in the USA where they are just as undemocratic as the LimpNonDems here in the UK.

    4. The newspapers love the hot weather although they will find it hard to reconcile NetZero in future with barbecues and travel to the best Blue Flag beaches (the i); travel to European lakes and rivers (Guardian); great last minute holidays (Times) barbecues – again (Express) and cottage breaks. (Sun) Staycations will be the thing to achieve NetZero.

      Along with some insight regarding his economic genius,

      “Also prefiguring the man was a trait that Marx developed early in his youth and never relinquished: a shameless sponging on friends and relatives. Already in early 1837, Heinrich Marx, castigating his son Karl’s wanton spending of the money of others, wrote to him that “on one point … you have wisely found fit to observe an aristocratic silence; I am referring to the paltry matter of money.” Indeed, Marx took money from any source available: his father, mother, and throughout his adult life, his long-suffering friend and abject disciple, Friedrich Engels, all of whom fueled Marx’s capacity for spending money like water.”

      “An insatiable spender of other people’s money, Marx continually complained about a shortage of financial means. ”

      To be fair, I can understand why football fans wouldn’t want to risk travelling around France in searing temperatures with all the problems that country is having at the moment with the Yellow Shirt protests, etc.

    6:30pm Radio @Mobeen_Azhar was on
    “i went back to my hometown after I heard about this shooting, and I was surprised to find about these new gangs and drugs..nothing was happening before ”
    .. The whole discussion went on and they never mentioned grooming gangs once
    .. all those years he claimed nothing was happening ..grooming gangs were going on in Huddersfield
    In his video intro he does mention that people think “we are terrorists or groomers”
    ..so why not deal with this issue ?

      Newspaper articles written about the Oily creature and ‘news’ of his lucrative offers are offensive.
      All I want to see is a short paragraph stating he is in custody awaiting trial for treason.
      Him and the many, many others who have conspired and colluded with barbarians and hostile foreign powers.

    Boris Johnson calls the BBC the “Brexit Bashing Corporation” he says that “The BBC has been at the forefront of the assault on Brexit for some time. They no longer make a pretence of being independent and balanced, in my opinion” he says.

    Boris also says that his cabinet will not have any Remainers in it, saying it would be a “drag on progress”. But Change UK leader, Anna Soubry, says Jacob Rees-Mogg is actually running the country. The newspapers say that Theresa May looks furious and scowls. Support for Change UK is collapsing due to the lack of Entryism from other political parties, with most Remainers entering the LibDems. Luckily the Labour Party is not suffering from any Entryism at all.

    Remainers are threatening to leave the Tory party if Boris wins (how sad), complaining about deplorable Brexiteers in the party, those who want to leave the EU, Populists, Entryism of people who came back to the Tories from UKIP instead of joining the Brexit Party and members who respect referendum results.

    The political party suffering the most from Entryism is the Brexit Party. The level of Entryism since the beginning of the year has been 100%. Coming mostly from UKIP, Labour and the Tory Party.

    Not BBC but Channel 4, but where they dig a cess pit the BBC follows.

    Channel 4 News has Matt Frei looking like a headmaster with an untypical black family lined up before his desk. Turns out that dad, mum and brat are unrelated but are all there to tell us how they have been liberated by the Hero of effing Glastonbury.

    Frei simpers along and tells them how he could talk to them for hours. I guess he wet his pants and rushed back to his media pals, “Yo man! I is aktly bin dun an talk wit dem niggas!”. Then for some unknown reason we had to be concerned that nearly black people in South America were painting themselves blacker. Do we care? TV obviously does as 98% of adverts are black but curiously not brown.

    Left-wing ‘re-education camp’ is accused of training pro Corbyn, anti capitalist pundits to flood the BBC’s airwaves, reports Mail Online. So, it’s just as we suspected. But, as Liz Truss points out in the article, why does the BBC go along with it? Think we all know the answer to that……

      From the linked article

      “If they ditched these hateful idealogues, they might be able to produce better quality, balanced shows.’ ”

      It is a fantasy to expect any news organisation to produce balance because we all perceive a different balance point. Far better to have a subscription based system and ‘user chooser’ so far as funding is concerned. I know it’s not the eighties any more though let the market decide.

    “The European Commission has warned Madrid it faces sanctions if it fails to meet air quality standards.”

    The newly elected Madrid government gets kickback for carrying out an election promise.

    Naturally our State Broadcaster stands shoulder to shoulder with those protesting against a democraticly taken decision.

    Democracy only works with the consent of the losers.

    India play England at Edgbaston in the Cricket World Cup today.
    I mention India first because really this will be a “home” fixture
    for them with up to 80% of those in the ground supporting India.
    England will be booed as they enter the field of play.
    As it happens the Indian community is far more integrated into
    Britain and its western democracy then many other ethnic
    communities. And I have no truck with “the how may generations
    do you have to live in the UK before you consider yourself to be
    British?” The Indians have every right to support India!
    As for the BBC which considers the Ladies football World Cup a much
    more important sporting event, they will be as scrupulously neutral
    as ever. Allison Mitchell , Ebony Rainford Brent and the rest of
    the cricket presenters and pundits will make sure that they are not
    seen to be supporting India. The BBC of today would of had a
    special correspondent in Berlin between 1939-1945 giving us
    the German point of view.

          Something that is ever a mystery to me. If migrants have integrated into the British way of life, how come the 2nd and 3rd generations still speak with the accents that can hardly be described as ‘British’ – well, not as I know spoken English to be.

          Most young black men speak with a lack of diction and have trouble pronouncing “th”, and many of the young with Indian/Pakistani heritage still speak like the welsh missionaries that were sent out to ‘educate’ the masses in foreign lands in the 19th century. Ok its a generalisation, but it cannot only be a home influence that dictates the way they speak. My late parents spoke ‘broad Yorkshire’, but I was born and raised in the south, yet I don’t speak with a Yorkshire accent.

            Hi Brissles,
            I never understand why their names remain “Asian” (#not China,Japan,Russian,Korean).
            I had an Italian girlfriend 30ish years ago. I occasionally wonder what would’ve happened if I’d followed her back to Turin.
            Here’s what :
            Our children may have been called Peter and Sandra(though probably not). Their children would be called Peitro and Allesandra.
            These children would speak perfect Italian with no British accent. They would support all Italian teams – even cricket if they have one.
            Their children would be called Lorenzo and Angelo.
            They probably wouldn’t speak English unless they chose to at school.
            They may show a slight interest in where their old granddad came from but probably not.
            The idea of them supporting England against Italy at ANYTHING is ridiculous.
            So I would love to ask an “Indian” in today’s cricket crowd : Are you English? If so why are you bedecked in India’s flag ? I am genuinely interested.
            Why are folk described as Asian when they are English ?
            My pretend grandchildren wouldn’t be described as English.

            I must be a racist gammon.
            Keep up the great postings.
            Same to all you regulars.
            Great site.

      Then they started pushing a myth that “women’s football was banned for 50 years”
      .. Don’t be daft the prisons were not full of lady footballers.

      “banned” is a powerful boo word, if you don’t give context then people assume it’s universal.
      AFAIK during WW1 mens football was suspended and the FA invited ladies teams to play at FA grounds.
      Then after the war in 1921 the FA went back to mens teams and actively decided not to support ladies football by stopping their teams from using FA grounds, stopping male FA officials working at the matches etc..
      The ladies teams then went to play at rugby grounds. It is true that in 1969. the FA once again started to support ladies football. (That’s 48 years)
      But the women’s teams already existed … every so often on local radio they have a women on who played in team after WW2
      “Leicester City Ladies F.C. was formed in 1966 as Leicester Ladies F.C”

      The BBC article grudgingly talks about teams playing in 1937

    I read on through this article for as much I could bear looking for a statement that these folk had eased their agonies by volunteering additional payment to the US taxman but there was no indication of them having the nous to do so, nor of the BBC proposing such a solution. Virtue signalling is obviously more rewarding than actually parting with $$.

    The Brexit Party announcement. (Not on the BBC, of course).

    “”Dear Supporter,””

    “”Our national event, The Big Vision, is sold out at the NEC Birmingham today.
    If you haven’t got a ticket you can still follow the political event of the summer.

    Watch The Big Vision live, via our social media pages, from 4pm this afternoon.

    Don’t miss the chance to hear the Brexit Party’s first big policy announcements, and the results of our supporters’ votes on options for political reform. We will also be announcing our first 100-plus candidates for a General Election.

    If you do have a ticket for The Big Vision, we look forward to seeing more than 5,000 of you this afternoon for the next step in our campaign to change politics for good. “”

    It will be interesting to hear their plans for the BBC 😉

      Vlad,
      If those cancelling their TV tax is gaining momentum, that loss of revenue + overpayments (“equal” payments) to staff surely means ‘two-ends-to-the-middle’. Not a good business model. I imagine a good number of over 75’s will elect not to pay for a licence when the time comes.
      Anyway, I dream of the day when viewing numbers to the BBC and the other broadcasters fall to their ethnic contingent only. After all, it is they who the BBC and other broadcasters focus their output on almost exclusively now. Evidence? Look no further than the disproportionate numbers of black and asian faces which equally disproportionately adorn almost every item of tv advertising. Let’s see if that small faction can financially support the BBC and all its excesses.
