Weekend Open Thread 20 July 2019

The Far Left biased BBC , being naturally anti American , will spin the 50th anniversary of the landing of a Man on the Moon in its current propaganda mode .

So it’s all about – waste of money – not green – no Wimmin -no blacks -no gays -no Muslims . Why no disabled astronauts ? Why hasn’t The great EU sent a rocket yet ?

I Still feel pleased to have watched it live on TV live though .

    May be first so am glad I ducked out of Any Questions early. My reward. 😉 Thank you to the brave soul, fakenewswatcher, who provided an update of what I (gladly, in retrospect) missed from the rest of the programme. Our thoughts will no doubt be with the crews of the oil tankers over this weekend.

    I wonder what the Foreign Secretary will be up to?

    I posted in the week that President Trump was an oaf for making those Tweets that could be abused and used in edited form by unscrupulous folk including our BBC. I think I was right and am proved right now because they have travelled around the world and arrived at our door, duly weaponised, courtesy of the Home Secretary today. That’s a great shame on all directly involved.

    Those two Tweets will now cause trouble for everyone here. 🙁

    I wish you all a good weekend.

      Good weekend to you too Up2snuff.

      I have to disagree re the tweeting Trump and his pointed insult to the dreadful Squad.

      I paraphrase:

      If all you can do is moan and groan about America, what are you doing here? Go back home, see if you can fix the problems in your own countries first and then come back and tell us how it’s done.

      The Defamestream lefty media propagandists in the US, UK (with the BBC leading the pack, of course) and elsewhere flung that last phrase down the Memory Hole. No doubt Trump knew they would do that. But he also knows that he can spread his message effectively to the tens of thousands who attend each of his rallies and that it will also be reproduced faithfully on Fox News, conservative blogs and social media – well, for now while it is still possible.

      (Contrast that with the absurd mockery of a ‘press conference’ with the Squad broadcast by MSNBC – the one I linked to above. The four were given perhaps 95% of the time to spout their hatred of Trump and then deigned to answer only three questions – which they then dodged with no follow up from the ‘press’ there. This is what a press conference looks like in a third world dictatorship, which is precisely what the Squad would love America to be in time – with them in charge, of course.)

      I have seen Trump’s demolition of his opponents from the Republican Primaries to the presidency. And there is a consistent theme throughout: he has shown no respect at all for political correctness. He is blunt, direct, honest and outspoken and people adore him for it: they know he has the well-being of Americans – and people beyond America – at heart. Yes, he is also coarse and insulting, but so what? We all have our little faults.

      He has highlighted the division between the hysterical left and the right, between those who think they should get everything for nothing and those prepared to work and contribute to society. There is no evidence that his leadership style has diminished his support. If anything, it’s grown because people are sick of the slick political correctness and hypocrisy of the left.

      To get back to the UK, I was disappointed in the way in which Boris fielded the question from Dale re the infamous Trump tweet. It would have been so refreshing if he had just said he agrees with Trump – if you have so much hatred for the country that took you in and sheltered and sustained you, why don’t you go back to your own country, help fix it and then return. Well, probably Boris hadn’t tuned into any media that included that last important bit.

      More worrying is the probability that Boris is a globalist, and will not therefore really fight for Brexit.

        IMO, the “Squad” have brought it on themselves:

        The real racism behind the Trump/Omar furore

        “It is also the case that she and the three other members of the “Squad” of ultra-left congressswomen lose no opportunity to bash America and claim it is fundamentally bigoted against non-white people, while openly promoting an agenda to transform its culture out of all recognition.”

          Helen Richardson,

          True. As an American might say, the Squad don’t know squat.

          In fact, the outspoken Kellyanne Conway used that very word in her angry denunciation of them:

          These people in the so-called Squad, who have done squat in Congress other than pose on magazine covers and go on late-night comedy shows and cause trouble in their own caucus…

          Perceptive article from Melanie Philips, as usual. But she doesn’t seem to like Trump much.

          What I find amusing about this whole episode is that as far as I’m aware ( not on Twitter) nowhere in the first tweets did he mention names but they (the squad) bravely stepped forward to claim the outrage crown thereby triggering support from the rest of the Democratic Party who had previously been trying to distance themselves from them. I predict many buckets of popcorn will be needed next year.

          Helen, that’s standard Democrat fare. We get the same from Labour, the Greens and to a lesser extent the LibDems here in the UK. It grates. But it shows the poverty of their arguments and their policies.

          Unfortunately, President Trump has now turned the arguments and policies of the Liberal and Socialist wing of politics into pure gold. Trump has found and used a political Philosopher’s Stone on behalf of the opposition.

        I like your re-write, TT. I have been doing the same myself for the last couple of days. If only …. . . .

        Here’s one of my efforts:
        ‘We have some inspirational women in Congress and USA. These four Democrat Congresswomen, instead of criticising ALL the time, could make a real difference by returning to their country of origin, fixing problems there and using transferable concepts back home here to help make America great again.’
        (298 characters – OK for a long Tweet?)

        Listening to The Squad in that Press Conference, I am hearing lies about President Trump and the USA – but ..BUT …BUT…. it was those thoughtless, stupid, Tweets by Trump that gave them that platform and the PR opportunity to push for an Impeachment Vote that, thankfully, failed.

        Trump was elected as President in 2016 by winning key swing States such as Ohio and Florida that were not really his to win. Democrat/Roman Catholic (Ohio) and a high BAME/Roman Catholic population (Florida) were the losses that did for Hillary Clinton. Whoever gets to run for the Democrats in 2020 will be able to call up those idiotic Tweets from Trump and pin them to a Republican rosette.

        I think President Trump may have lost the 2020 Election in this last week. That is a shame as I think he had been on track to win.

        What is worse, President Trump has needlessly lit a flame that will probably burn us all here in the UK and in other countries like France and Germany. Could it also affect Israel? Did you note what some of The Squad said?

          Up2snuff,

          You have me scratching my head a bit, and here’s why: the husband of the eminent Kellyanne Konway, a senior Trump personage, has come out publically against Trump, calling him a racist – and thereby going against his wife. I gleaned the info from the link in my comment above.

          Not only that, the Fox News couple who interviewed Kellyanne seemed uncomfortable with Trump’s infamous tweet. That’s unusual. (Not the infamous tweet, but the Fox reaction.)

          In a country that has been schooled for decades by lefty media and educators that to even think a racist thought is akin to being a mass murderer, the Tweeter-in-Chief has caused quite a commotion. Even his daughter, Ivanka, has apparently urged him to disavow the Send her back chant directed at Ilhan Omar during his recent rally, as it might damage the Party. I say “apparently” since the link is to that awful rag, the New York Times, whose reporting is about as trustworthy as that of the BBC.

          Trump did say that he didn’t support the chant, but the NYT doesn’t believe him. I do, because he often smiles at similar chants during his rallies. This time he seemed to almost frown.

          You’ll have to shave 18 characters off your tweet to make it fit Twitter’s limit. I had to ask Google for help there since I hardly ever use Twitter. The BBC and fellow-travelers would shave off a lot more. They would replace your comma after ‘origin’ with a full stop and omit the rest. Since any hint of racism has now become a capital offence in the West (as long as perpetrator and victim are the politically-correct colours) your tweet would simply be regarded as polite racism, as bad as the impolite kind, if not worse.

          Trump has made similar statements and tweeted similar tweets on several occasions, apparently without long-lasting negative effects.

          I can’t see how the tweet will impact negatively on countries outside the US. The two squaddies who stem from Iraq and Somalia are serious anti-Semites. It’s unsurprising since they stem from countries which instill hatred of Jews in their populations practically from birth. Many Israelis will applaud Trump’s stand against those real racists. Many others will condemn the tweet.

          People either love Trump or they hate him. Will the tweet create a significant swing towards the haters? I doubt it.

            I can sense your confusion if you are a Trump fan, TT, and have a touch of myopia about the damage he has almost certainly done to himself & his Party, as well as to others. The thing I found a bit chilling from that QuadSquad pre-Impeachment Motion Press Conference was the inference that there will be a ‘world uprising’ (or words to that effect) over this.

            Now, I consider one of the massive achievements of President Trump’s first term to be the recognition by the USA of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. I’m sure the extremists supporting the QuadSquad would love to see a Gaza and West Bank uprising with someone other than Trump in the WH.

            Then, closer to home at the micro level. I know a family with a white Mother and some mixed race children. They are what I would call friends, especially the children’s grandmother, although not close friends. Because the media, especially the BBC, have not reported the full two Tweets by President Trump, they have made ‘it’ out to be a ‘racist’ Tweet. Indeed, that is what some people in the Republican Party have assumed hence their chants at a subsequent meeting.

            What will probably happen now is that other children will go up to the (mixed race) children I know and say “President Trump says you should go home.” or “The American President says you should go back where you came from.” In addition, in school by other children or even by teachers, those children will be told “President Trump is a racist.” or “Republican Party members are racists.” or “Some (Many?) white people are racists.”

            Can you see now how an ill-considered, hasty, Tweet has the potential to do much damage?

            In addition to the above, there is no doubt that the Race Industry here will pick on that Tweet and its distortion by the media and ‘make hay’ whether the sun is shining or not. I hope it all blows over but it may not, probably will not, and in November 2020 we will look back at the day Twitter destroyed a Presidential second term.

            The reason people like Presidents (and PMs) have Chiefs of Staff and Directors of Communications is because a simple slip can cause a lot of damage. (Think Bojo trying to escape what he said about Nazanin Zhagari Ratcliffe.)

            Please Mr. President: stay off Twitter. Stay off Twitter especially when it is late at night.

      Strange how the Al-Beeb fail to mention the comments of Congresswomen Ms Omar. Her derision of the US’s humanitarian efforts in Somalia circa early 1990s. Her dismissive comments regarding the terror attack of 9/11. Her Anti-semitic rants. Oh and not forgetting the alleged tax fraud she being investigated about, which involved her apparently marrying her brother. You couldn’t make it up.

    BBC London droning on about the ‘Housing Crisis’ .
    There just aren’t enough homes for the ‘growing population’.

    I would point out that with an ongoing nett mass immigration of round 300,000 per year we need a lot of new houses, not paid for by the said immigrants needless to say, just to stand still.

    Unfortunately if I did point this out, I would be excused of being an extremist, according to the latest in-denial commission report proudly described prominently this morning on the BBC.

    Joining the dots. A game our state broadcaster chooses not to play.

      And its not going to get any better with a Home Sec and a future PM who are hell bent on “rubbing the rights nose in diversity”

      Of course the “right” these days is everyone not living in the metropolitan areas and/or possesses any sort of viewpoint to the right of the Guardian.
      After making a reasonable start as Home Sec (after the Shamima Begum case) I think this last few weeks we have seen the true Savid Javid – a vengeful and bitter globalist determined to break and remake this country in his own image.

      Alongside cowardly, pro migration Boris (who it seems now will always genuflect to a militant BBC) I believe once united in power this pair of clowns will be just as dangerous as Corbyn when it comes to maintaining our culture, our society and yes – our borders.

      Leopards never change their spots, and it would seem these days neither do Tories.

          Yes you are right G. To be perfectly honest I am starting to consider him a very dangerous man. He has proved he is more than willing to play the “racist” card as soon as anyone questions him on anything to do with this subject.

          Originally I thought he might have been OK – But it seems he is planning to flood us with people who will not respect our culture and traditions and instead will just want free stuff, whilst trashing what is left of our country.

          Apparently “populism” is “dangerous”. What he means is “populism” is dangerous to the aspirations of destructive globalists like him as in the presence of weak governments and in absence of any common sense based migration policies, it is the only way the indigenous/settled population have left of expressing their opposition to the policies of these hateful globalists.

      There is no housing crisis. A housing crisis occurs when there is a mismatch between people numbers and the availablity of affordable, suitable housing i.e. too many people, not enough housing. If there really was a housing crisis, the government wouldn’t be increasing the population by 300,000+ plus each year through immigration. If there really was a housing crisis, it would be spending money on building new homes. For instance, instead of spending £14 billion a year on so-called foreign aid, it would construct approximately 100,000 new starter homes and flats per year with the money instead. It is doing neither of these things, therefore there obviously isn’t a housing crisis.

        We do have an unemployment crisis. (Generally agreed limit in the distant past for that was greater than 750,000, in the more recent past, it was 1 million+.) The great achievement of the Coalition and Cameron administrations was the recovery of employment from the 2007-2009 crash & recession.

        Theresa May’s fine words outside No.10 Downing Street in 2016 were not matched by actions in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. Hammond & Carney ran inflation far too high. Unemployment is stuck stubbornly at that 1.3m+ level that it sat at – to their shame – all through a Labour Government’s time in power.

        Worrying.

        That 1.3 million figure may start to turn into a floor, a new normal. That is unacceptable.

        Agree in principle, but whete Ian are they to construct these new houses/housing-we are running out of land, and by that I mean land suitable for such. No immigrant coming from outside Europe should be entitled to anything ahead, of firstly the indigenous Brit, then those that are from one of the 26 nations within the EU-proably impossoble under liberal imposition.
        Our over crowding, and that is what it is at the moment with a populaton statistically of over 70 million, now quite definitely unsustainable in its efforts to maintain the services necessary for the country to function, let alone the appalling state of societies behaviour-rats in a trap-I have lived in many cities in the UK and Europe as well as having been lucky enough to also live in the countryside, where I am now thank God. There is still reasonable peace, discounting the agricultural traffic, and where again in the main people appear more friendly and happy to have a chat without thinking your’e after their money ! However even in such areas the encroachment of certain immigrants is begining to change the face of the scene in Market Towns and villages so much enjoyed over the past years. As an Englishman with an ancestry going back many centuries, -this land this secepted Isle, set in a silver sea, this England- for how much longer may one ask can we expect to enjoy the peace?

Those that follow the teachings of Islam are now flooded across our TV screens, every programme, discussion type, sitcom type, sport type, political type, introduces one or more Muslim. I could hardly believe it when T May gave the job of Home Secretary to S Javid, a strong follow of Islamic values as I am told-then we have that Mayor of Londonstan Khan, and others as heads of major Councils, holding top Policing postions, Sharia Law not the law of our nation but neverthe less is imposing itself upon us.

      An implausible conjecture backed by false evidence and repeated incessantly has become politically correct ‘knowledge,’ and is used to promote the overturn of industrial civilization. What we will be leaving our grandchildren is not a planet damaged by industrial progress, but a record of unfathomable silliness as well as a landscape degraded by rusting wind farms and decaying solar panel arrays. Professor Richard Lindzen.

      The Medal should go to Climate Scientist, Karl Zeller, who sums up the discovery that pressure, not CO2, determines a Planets surface temperature.

      For Mars, use the Grey body temperature and air pressure, not the Black body temperature of 207 Kelvin, not the four times doubling of CO2 increasing the temperature to 210 Kelvin. Not the Black Body Temperature of Mars of 81.5 percent that of the Earth. The surface has a 7 millibar CO2 Atmosphere. So if the “Hoax” was true and Mars could be used as a proxy for “Global Warming” then a proxy equivalent of a 7,000 ppm CO2 Atmosphere on Earth would produce a temperature of 3.68 Kelvin, way short of the 32 Kelvin needed to prove the silly Hoax. But even the 3.68 Kelvin on Mars is now proven to be a Hoax.

    I think it has a good legal case. There is not much point us all waiting for the next bolloxed ‘Charter review’. We have to state the obvious and point out that the BBC is well outside its Charter of (so called) impartiality (and stands to loose all public funding) amongst a long list of ‘biased’ political issues, the most serious is its outright dedication to Brussels no matter what the electorate voted for. We have a legal case, lets support this crowdfunding initiative! Please support as best you can. If we can’t fund it who can?

    What will happen is that the BBC will get a, very big fine! piled on to future negative publicity arresting grannies for non payments. They have been warned before about EU bias and simply ignored it:

        Me Too, ah ah. I agree the time is ripe for a concerted effort to mobilise the millions seething with resentment over the EU bias of the BBC and the millions more who will be angered by their predations on the over 75’s . But the judicial review won’t get anywhere because the judges are part of the establishment and will never go against the BBC. But it will provid valuable publicity on which mass education into the BBC bias could be hung and a campaign to refuse to pay the LF could be started. For instance will the BBC dare to send over 75 non payers to prison, I doubt it. So there must be a legal argument that this sets a precedent for under 75’s not to pay the LF and not be incarcerated. The law can’t be ageist surely?
        But if the BBC is so full of its own ‘goodness ‘ that it does send an over 75 to prison, they will have provided a martyr for the cause which will outrage m many,’ the elderly being sacrificed to pay Gary Lineacker ‘ , would be a great headline.

The Armstrong tribe were able to raise three thousand horsemen and were said to be at one point in control of the debatable lands. In 1610 the last tribal Chief Archibald Armstrong of Mangerton was hanged. Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk upon the Moon, took with him a piece of the Clan Armstrong tartan to the Moon. In 1972, Neil Armstrong was made the first freeman of the burgh of Langholm, Scotland the seat of the Clan Armstrong, and therefore happily declared the town his home. But then Neil Armstrong hastily left his home town and returned to America for safety reasons, when the Justice of the Peace read out an unrepealed 400-year-old racist law that required him to ethnically cleanse any ethnic Armstrong found in the town, by hanging them. This was how Neil Armstrong was subjected to racism by the Scots, and therefore never returned back to his home town.

    10pm news on Friday evening when a static car event for CHARITY turned into a car chase for boy racers. I think it would have been interesting to know which charity and maybe have a spokesman from the said charity comment. But the BBC chose not to. I don’t know what was really going on but the way the BBC reported it left me wondering.

    The opening comment on this thread is perfect.

    I happened to catch the end of an interview on TV yesterday and for some reason the interviewee visibly shoehorned the comment “we must send women to the Moon next time” in their last breath. The interviewer agreed and that was literally the end.

    Box ticked, ears ringing, in our minds a fifty year injustice has to be put right. State Broadcaster loves to fly the flag for its favoured causes.

      NG – “we must send women to the Moon next time”
      Its a bloody good idea, “the word on the street is that in fact last night just such a mission was planned. Apparently the spacecraft commander Commander was Mrs Quisling with a crew consisting of fatbot, Emily Fatberry, Jess Phillips, “Baroness” Warsi, Anna Soudbry, Emily Maitless, Victoria Derbyshire, Gina Miller and of course Jeremy Vine.

      Mrs Quisling as PM would of course have the correct calibre to organise the mission with the likes of Diane Abbot and Lady Nugee in charge of the food supplies. Gina Miller in charge of the navigation systems.

      Of course after we have landed them brave gals they should go out and explore. If there are aliens there, hopefully Jess Phillips, Soudbry, Warsi, Maitless, can go out and meet them and hopefully after being taken to their leader the aliens will be scared off from any attempts at invading the earth. If Lady Quisling negotiates we are doomed.

      If not planned correctly there may not be enough fuel to bring them back or food and O2 for them all to survive – they may well have to eat each other – Oh dear – how sad never mind.

      And when it all finally goes wrong – Queen Jeremy can make the last broadcast to earth complete with sobbing. “Oh the humanity of it all – the brightest and the best, lost, lost, lost”

      Actually I just realised it never happened – Because Mrs Quisling put Gina Miller in charge of Nav systems, they never went anyway and just remained instead.

        Thanks for the chuckle, Oaknash. But you made one mistake. Abbopotamus would not be in charge of the food supply but navigation. The mission would then take off and land back on earth immediately, giving Abbopotamus and Brawnberry the opportunity to gorge on the food supply and stuff as much of it as possible into the pockets of their space suits while waiting to be rescued.

        50th anniversary of the landing of a Man on the Moon

        This was an achievement by engineers. Most of the engineers were working for Lockheed and other aero-space firms, and some with NASA.

        The proof – when things are going well, one notes administrators, politicians and token people taking the credit, but when things go wrong, its blame the engineers.

        As for lack of women and “people of colour” (disgusting Newspeak) in the space program – at the time, astronauts were mainly top rank fighter pilots – mostly white men. This is the case even now, even though it is far safer as men have done the hard work.

        Engineers who made it all possible, were mostly White men. Even now, engineers in the West are mostly men – White or Asian.

      Read the link. What a terrible idea.

      Men spread their legs as constricting them squashes the penis and testicles. This is uncomfortable, as well as leads to overheating and perspiration in the crotch. Bad hygiene as well detrimental to sperm count.

      Women have no such problem. Moreover, women generally wear skirts. Spreading their legs leads to excess ventilation and cold.

      This designer is brainwashed in PC feminist doctrine. Bad trait for engineering design work.

Its even fed to them via an earpiece. I Imagine they even sleep with the earpiece in place pumping out a version of the propaganda in case they try and avoid it otherwise. ‘Conditioning’. This has to take a toll of their mental health. Just think, day in day out, for example, Brexit or Trump. Most normal human beings would be driven quite mad with that daily diet. On and on and on.

Next is the language problem if these new people come from countries where the English language is not their mother tongue. Where will they be housed? Who is going to pay for all this development? Of course as someone has pointed out the UK needs to stop paying out money it cannot afford to countries that really need to get there own house in order and tackle the monumental corruption within their countries, allowing the money to actually do some good. We need that money here now more than ever. Javid is way outside understanding the real problems now facing us all, no matter one’s age.

The article begins with the phrase “Primary schools in England should start teaching pupils about female genital mutilation”. A few sentences later we get “Earlier this year, England saw its first successful prosecution of an FGM case, which involved a three-year-old girl mutilated by her mother”, followed by a link to “FGM being performed on UK babies”. Right. Neither three year old girls or babies attend primary school, so how would this help them become aware of the problem? Still, I suppose we should be thankful that the BBC used a photograph of a pair of black hands holding a razor blade to illustrate the ‘some communities’, rather than a white hand holding a knife.

    WTF??? An oil tanker is captured by small raiding craft, how is an anti air system supposed to prevent that?

    The following day after Trumps announcement, and Irans statement about bribery Boris Johnson travelled to the USA and appeared on Fox News attempting to persuade Trump NOT to end the Iran nuclear treaty. There is a great deal of Prima Facie evidence to suggest Johnson has been compromised by the Iranian government and might have accepted bribe money.

    out of Monty Python. You know the 100 meters for those with
    weak bladders. The gun goes off and everybody runs for the toilets.
    That how the pages made me laugh. I expect before long BIG BROTHER at the BBC will give instructions that for gender equality

    These spineless politicians make me laugh.
    Whenever they talk bravely about tackling “extremism” they always make sure that the usual suspects, the largely mythical “far right” get a mention.
    Thus far this lot largely consists of a bloke who made his girlfriend’s dog do a Nazi salute, an odd group who gave their kids peculiar names and some geezers who swore at the sweet natured and delightful Anna Soubry.
    Not exactly a catalogue of horror, is it?
    Of course those who behead soldiers, stab policemen and blow up our daughters are also mentioned, but their atrocities could hardly be ignored.
    I don’t consider being a bit rude really compares to mass murder and carnage.

    Our heroic politicians know only too well where the real threat comes from. If you visit London take a look at all the hideous bollards around Westminster. They’ve made bloody certain that they’re well protected. All around St James’s Park and the elegant Regency side streets are scarred by these concrete carbuncles.
    They’ve not been put there to protect our MPs from a verbal assault by Tommy Robinson.
    Much as they deserve it…

      Due to Theresa May and Michael Gove, science is to be replaced by environmentalism were marks are only available for candidates who choose to parrot the sustainability agenda. In exam questions the words carbon dioxide and global warming will always get a mark regardless of the question. The fact is that children’s ability to pass their exams and hence their future life prospects appears to depend on being able to demonstrate their climate change orthodoxy.

      For one hundred years, Tories have regarded Socialists as nasty and Socialists have regarded Tories as nasty. Theresa May was the first Tory leader to regard the Tories as nasty, proving to us that she is a Socialist. She has therefore sided with Extinction Rebellion by introducing a policy of indoctrinating Primary School children to lobby nasty Tory MP’s and go on climate strike. Political and Environmentalist indoctrination has now replaced all but the hardest Maths exams. Under this system, clever people get zero out of ten and people like Greta Thunberg get ten out of ten and a job with the BBC as one of its best scientific advisors or correspondents. This system replaces the old fashioned system where high levels of intelligence lead to people getting good qualifications, with a system were low IQ people with posh parents and a high level tendency for robotic conformity getting the good qualifications necessary for a job at the BBC.

      This is the Legacy that Theresa May will leave us with.

      As a left-wing Socialist, I presume Theresa May will now dedicate herself to campaigning against Donald Trump, by supporting those four nasty communist candidates who want to be President of America.

          Possibly more like watching Frankie Howard in ‘Up Pompeii!’ than watching the last days of Rome, but the parallels are intriguing. Around 90% of the population of Rome were immigrants and slaves (think London in another 20 years, 10 if Khan continues). The armies of Rome were far from home still winning great victories, whilst the Barbarians were at the gates (think military adventures in Iraq, Afghanistan and now Iran). On the plus side: although the Western Empire collapsed into degeneracy, incompetence and over-reach, the Eastern Empire continued for another 1,000 years. Time to get those tickets for Warsaw, Budapest, Sofia, Kiev and learn a new language…

    Here’s Boris from the final event with Hunt:

    …I’m incredibly proud, having cunningly stationed my ancestors around the world, before I became foreign secretary, [a bit of laughter from those in the audience who caught the joke] the people I was proud to be mayor of is the most diverse city on earth – we can be incredibly proud of that because it shows what an amazing magnet we are for talent [and of course for those intent on leeching off the generous welfare system, some of whom at the same time plot to destroy the UK and actually carry out terrorist attacks].

    Well, at least Boris would not then satisfy Dale by agreeing that Trump’s tweets were ’racist.’

    I was impressed by him calling the diminutive ‘mayor’ of London “invertebrate.” A fitting description.

    Can’t find the part right now where he gets really enthused about a literacy project for children all around the planet, but specifically in Africa. I’d like him to be that enthused about extricating Britain from the EU. Perhaps he is, but it’s concerning that his evident globalism might trump his commitment to the country.

    Ministers pledge to end ‘poor doors’ in new build housing

    Here’s a story on the BBC telling us “the separate entrances for social housing tenants living in new builds “stigmatise” and divide them from private residents, the government said.”

    Tory minister “James Brokenshire said he had been “appalled” by the examples of segregation he had seen.”

    As is so often the way, or esteemed national broadcaster quotes a piece from the Guardian too…

    …in some cases, social housing tenants have been excluded from using some facilities, and made to use different entrances from those which give access to privately owned homes.

    In March, one development in south London was reported by the Guardian to have blocked children living in social housing from using a communal playground.

    (Is there anything else the social tenants want for free? How about use of the private owners’ cars and sitting rooms).

    And our esteemed Mayor Khan said it’s an “appalling form of social segregation.”

    I work in finance in London with many highly educated, affluent people who I see buying their first homes. It’s typical that around Canary Wharf a 2 or 3 bed flat (nothing luxurious) costs £650k – £1m. My colleagues then spend the next 20 years of their life paying off the mortgage.

    Often, around half of the flats in a new development are “social or affordable” or whatever. Many of the developments are undertaken by housing associations for the sole purpose of providing social housing – they rip off those private buyers and the money taken funds subsidised housing for social tenants. (This is possible in part because housing associations can borrow at lower interest rates and thus undercut private developers.)

    So we’re left with a situation where my colleagues working 14 hour days are “bonded” to the social tenants; 20 years working themselves into the ground to pay a mortgage that is providing housing to someone else.

    Now imagine that Tory minister Brokenshire having had to do this in his early 30s. I bet he wouldn’t have.

    My colleagues endlessly tell me about the antisocial behaviour – noise, bicycles in the corridor, smells, damage etc. in their buildings full of million pounds flats (I’ll give you a clue: it’s not caused by the bond traders who live there). It’s a toxic housing market; houses are too expensive because of a lack of supply but to get planning permission you’ve got to build a load of “social housing” paid for by the private buyers.

    Clearly this is a form of redistribution outside the tax system. But what has this to do with BBC bias?

    A Tory minister is virtue signalling; unable to identify the real problem he says it’s “appalling segregation.” Conservatives are clearly appeasing the BBC. They no longer identify the actual issues – that, in economic language, “new household formation” and supply restrictions have inflated property prices. The “correct” viewpoint is that people who are given almost free housing in the world’s capital city are “victims”.

    Pandering to the BBC / Guardian socialist views, appearing virtuous etc. in my view makes government policy worse because ministers aren’t focusing on identifying the problem. You need to be clear precisely what a problem is before you can hope to fix it.

    Because of the BBC et al we’re seeing London – the city that should be a bastion of capitalism and freedom in the world – dragged down by increasingly socialist policies.

    I’m sure it will be an awfully long time until we see a BBC article looking at the economic harm and iniquity of 45% tax payers spending 20 years of their lives paying for social housing via their mortgagees.

    On another note, thanks to you all for this site. I glance at it when I can and I see some perceptive and intelligent insights. It’s a small refuge of common sense in a world being captured by the Bolsheviks.

      I said the same earlier – how the Red Tories lost their way is beyond me . They seem to be against any advantage personal money – wealth – gives – but I bet they pay to send their kids to private ( segregated ) schools , have private health care for their families and the other identifiers for people with assets .

      With a bit of luck the likes of Brokenshire will be caste into the dark when a new cabinet is formed .

      Conservatism seems lost as the moment – I’m not one as I’m further towards libertarianism than those reds.

      Sam – A lot of people are going to have to work very, very hard, because there are many, many takers, who work little or not at all, and redistribution has to make sure the money flows from the one to the other.
      For, along with redistribution, the hunt is on for ‘fairness’: ‘inequality’ between the hard workers and the many takers needs to be addressed. So the hard workers are going to have to work ever harder. Not only because of ‘inequality’, but because there are going to be ever more takers. And socialism requires they be mixed: hence the noise, smells, damage etc
      The wonders of socialism have begun to infest ‘Conservative’ parties, and not only in Britain: look across to Germany, where the CDU has morphed into something a Ludwig Erhard would never recognise. Even a Willie Brandt or Helmuth Schmidt wouldn’t recognise it, and they were happy to be called social democrats…
      Richard Pinder put in another piece of the jigsaw puzzle for us, a little further up. It all helps for a picture to emerge from the present confusion. And it ain’t pretty.
      We will shortly know whether Boris can remember what conservatism was once about. His first cabinet appointments will start telling the story…

      Brokenshire is a literal moron.

      He has had to apologise to Sir Roger Scruton for sacking him after the New Statesman deliberately misquoted him in an article. Even they have had to apologise. Clearly Brokenshire, who looks like a Thunderbirds puppet, and has the brain to match, never thought that a left wing magazine might carry out a political hit job on the finest living Conservative philosopher.

      The man is so unfit for purpose it is beyond a joke, but this is the sort of rubbish the so-called Conservatives come up with these days.

    I think it was yesterday but it may have been Thursday – Woman’s Hour. Discussion about what a fantastic year it has been for women’s sport. I cannot tell you how many times the word ‘lionesses’ were mentioned (they did win the world cup…. didn’t they?)
    Then we had to have a discussion about diversity in women’s sport. No I don’t mean of the LGBQT variety but by race. Young women discussing and they all seemed to need role models. One mentioned that she was having problems finding I think a net ball club where there were people like her ie wearing a hijab. But she would have had in common with the other club members that she was female and enjoyed netball but, no, for her to feel comfortable there would need to be other muslim girls. Well I am Jewish and frequently attend meetings where I may be the only one of my faith but unless it is a religious meeting I am not going to look for fellow Jews. I have also never needed a role model but I decide what I want to do – and I guess Mrs Thatcher felt the same. Theresa of course was disappointed that she was not the first female British prime minister but as she has been such a disaster I am hoping that one she has left office she is quickly forgotten.

      What I think is more likely is that some BAME Republicans will be too ashamed to support Trump and campaign for him. We have just had that lesson – big time – here in the UK in the Local Authority and the EU Elections. The Brexit Party’s success came on the back of Conservatives being unwilling to campaign and even vote Conservative.

      In the US, The Quad Squad supporters are more likely to unite behind any Democratic candidate, just to get President Trump out of the White House. You have the evidence in front of your eyes: four years of bile have failed so far to defeat him in Election and remove him from power.

    Ten points in understanding the BBC’s Editorial Guidelines:

    (1) The BBC seeks to establish left-wing fake news and use the lowest reporting standards to provide coverage that is unfair and inaccurate.

    (2) The BBC tries to reflect the views and experiences of its staff, so that its output as a whole includes no significant diversity of opinion and strand of thought outside of low IQ middle-class left-wing circles.

    (3) The BBC seeks to under-represent the majority views on politics and the EU and censors the views of people with PhDs in Physics.

    (4) The BBC is dependent on environmental activists posing as scientists to arrange and compromise its editorial integrity on climate science.

    (5) BBC propaganda is designed to insist that there is a ‘false balance’ between a climate scientist who denies that CO2 can cause Climate Change due to the latest discoveries in Atmospheric Physics, and an environmental activist who knows bugger all about Atmospheric Physics but advises the BBC on it.

    (6) The BBC do not require absolute neutrality on every issue due to the political views of its staff.

    (7) The BBC exists to deliver low quality content that misinforms, indoctrinates and insults its audiences.

    (8) Inaccuracy, bias and prejudice are given such prominence that the BBC can produce programmes of the lowest quality and content that audiences can complain about.

    (9) BBC Audience Services are employed to fob off those complainants mentioned above.

    (10) Fraser Steel, head of the BBC complaints unit, is employed to fob off complaints from important complainants such as Lord Lawson, Members of Parliament, Scientists and important members of organisations such as Mensa.

      Einstein posited that nothing was faster than the speed of light, we are approaching that with the speed multiple convicted muslim rape gang reports are moved from the BBC front page to local news on numerous occasions while any white or Jewish accused of sexual crimes e.g. Weinstein, Epstein, Trump while not tried or convicted, remain on the front page.

    Fifty years ago my dad got me an Apollo mission portfolio from the US Embassy in London. It says that it was sent by the NASA overseas agent in the American Embassy information centre in London, to my fathers working address. I just got it out of the filling cabinet today. It includes the Apollo 11 flight plan, Apollo Saturn V rocket plan, Apollo 11 Lunar landing and orbit chart, a Lunar Module plan, a copy of the Lunar landing plaque, a First Man on the Moon gramophone record, a 3D map of the Moon, biographical data on Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins, and lots of nice big colour photographs.

    Dad also brought the family to visit the Planetarium at the top of the North bay cliff in Scarborough. The planetarium and cliff lift have now been closed down.

    That’s what started my interest in Astronomy.

    Must now get ready to watch the “Moon Landing Live” at 8pm on Channel 4. Nothing on the BBC today.

      If only the skies could be dark again . My refractor has been in its box for a long time …. nice to see James Burke resurface for the anniversary – I think he saw what the BBC was turning into and got out …..the JB thing is on the radio ….I remember him presenting on the night .

      I mentioned the other day the extract from his programme ‘
      connections ‘ where he talks to the camera about how rockets work – and I asked if anyone could put it here as it has to be one of the best pieces of timed TV ever . That was when the BBC was worth something ….

      WATCH THIS !

        That was a take James Burke had to get in one. I doubt there were any other launches scheduled for that day!

        The BBC told lies, even back then!

        Burke is talking about the combustion of two gases, oxygen and hydrogen, held in liquid form, as in a ‘Thermos’ flask, pointing to the first stage of the Saturn V behind. Unfortunately that stage burns liquid oxygen and RP-1, (kerosene), and his science is wrong as it as liquids that they enter the combustion chamber, It is the combustion products that are a gas, the fuels never get to that state.

        He adds to his bad science by pointing the the launch of Voyager 2. The vehicle for that used two solid fuel boosters, no ‘Thermos’ flask there, and a liquid-fuelled first stage burning Aerozine 50 and Di-nitrogen tetroxide.

        Burke has an MA in Middle English. plus ça change.

      Richard, what a fabulous collection, and doesn’t it say something about having a great Dad who would get you that !

      My hero ‘moment’ of my Dad, came in 1963 when he came home with two tickets, 5/– each (25p) and a lot of money then, for me and a friend to see the Beatles at Margate Winter Gardens. God love him.

        Well I certainly got a rocket up my arse from my Dad when I played Deep Purple too loud, sometimes Saturn 5 strength when I got hold of Made in Japan

    Make it topless might sell a couple more tickets, linesperson and refs in black stockings, basques and garters, Benny Hill theme tune as the teams arrive on the pitch with Phil Neville chasing them in a policemans uniform waving a truncheon, I will suggest this to the BBC see how that goes down…

    I am convinced they will take this on board as a vast improvement and thank me for the suggestion and insist I get the marketing job

    What a load of tosh. More important, is the fact that there is a shortage of houses brought on by the mass of people coming into the country. One of the main reasons that the UK voted for Brexit.

      Lucky there were ( apparently ) no british passport holders on the British registered ship otherwise they’d have been paraded in Tehran on the TV by now .

      At least we won’t be hearing from the Comrade Corbyn about it since he is so fond of going on Iranian State TV for money …

      …. and where is the PM on this ? Busily dubbing her walking boots for next week end ….

      Apparently Hunt has called the Iranian behaviour inappropriate. I get the feeling that we will hit them hard with a retaliatory strike of teddy bears ,candles and flowers by the Royal Corps of Snowflakes. Led by a numpty playing “Imagine” on a piano. That’ll show them..
