    Heads you lose, Tails you lose. That is the British public. And I mean ‘British’. The long suffering British who are abused by their own Government now on a daily basis by those who should not even qualify as being members of the political establishment.
    Firstly, the British Government sign up to Human Rights law’s which were, at the time perfectly reasonable following the 2nd World War. But then negligently sit back and allow those laws to be distorted, stretched and abused. Hence the now nonsense of the European Convention on Human Rights.
    Trust the people: they could see this coming decades ago. And that’s mainly without a worthless Uni Degree in ‘Gender Studies’ and ‘Journalism’.
    This is where the nonsense now leads us:

      G – The entire current ‘asylum’ racket started up as a result of measures adopted at the end of WW2 to deal with the problem of EUROPEAN refugees, who were still on the move in large numbers WITHIN EUROPE.
      Somewhere along the line this objective was quietly ditched, and the whole system greatly (and illegally?) expanded to include people from outside Europe. From anywhere, really, if the travellers fancied it.
      The EU/’Human Rights’ brigade were no doubt instrumental in this. Virtue-signalling began to mean that you could be promoted into and within one of a number of European institutions. Fat salary/benefit packages became available. The Law, we discovered, could be broken or simply ignored. It merely needed someone like Merkel to give it all the stamp of international acceptability and ‘legality’ (of a new sort, where you simply make up the rules as you go along, no need for democratic legitimisation).
      Today we see tens of thousands of ‘asylum seekers’ arrive in Europe every month, very few of whom would fit the intention when the system was created at the end of WW2.
      The media- seeing the opportunity to do some virtue-signalling of their own- have been instrumental in promoting this state of affairs.
      The boundary between the already much-abused ‘asylum’ system and outright people smuggling has become so blurred that governments now approve of and assist in both. It takes a Salvini or an Orban to even notice and oppose this abuse.
      That’s why the ‘liberal’ Western media don’t like them. (Incidentally, ‘liberal’ my foot!)

        fnw, it is a strange form of econo-socio-political suicide.

        I wish I could remember where I saw it yesterday, but IIRC ‘a western, first world’ Government has actually admitted that they do not have enough immigrants to drive down wages. That is the purpose behind a lot of it, along with supporting criminal industries that generate shed-loads of cash that finds its way into the banks of ‘the West’.

        At the risk of being thought a bit of a socialist and lefty for always banging on about unemployment (which I personally believe is an evil and tends to cause more evil) it fascinates me why a Labour Party in Government in May 1997 suddenly stopped talking about unemployment. Unemployment had been high after the two Conservative recessions at the end of the 1980s and in the early 1990s and Labour spokespeople used to bang on about it on a daily basis on BBC R4 every day until after the May General Election.

        Then they suddenly stopped. And stopped caring.

        Despite the longest period of sustained economic growth in the history of the UK {according to Gordon Brown) unemployment remained stubbornly high and actually worsened as people became ‘economically inactive’. The Labour Party in government could not admit that unemployment was too high (which it was) so it may well have been behind their decision to import massive numbers into the UK. It wasn’t just “to rub some peoples’ noses in diversity” (a pejorative phrase if there ever was one) as one Labour Party Minister put it. It was to keep wages down at a time of excessive inflation and produce the clearly implied threat of greater and longer unemployment to the indigenous workforce who had no jobs.

        The Conservative Party takes exactly the same approach. When the next big world recession comes it will not end well. And if the IPCC’s economists are really and truly worried about Anthropogenic Global Warming and Climate Change, then they really ought to get off their backsides right now and examine migration as a cause of excessive extra CO2 emissions.

          Snuff – I would go along with your assessment that undercutting wages by importing cheap labour is one of the motives of people like Blair and Merkel. The kindest interpretation you could put on it, is that they really don’t care what damage they do to social cohesion in the process.
          However, there is still evidence of a persuasion that crept in at some stage (when?) (why?) that it was not good for European nations to be ‘hideously white’ and that all self-respecting European nations had to be ‘multicultural’.
          Certainly, the “shed-loads of cash that flow into banks” would be one identifiable motive for some otherwise baffling political policies. Banks too, couldn’t care less about the welfare of a society.
          Many of our politicians are already pretty wealthy, so some mutually beneficial relationship with banking (and commerce!) is bound to exist.
          I would even go so far as to say that, if Labour genuinely supported the interests of the British working man and woman, and fighting unemployment, there would be no problem in voicing support for them.
          In that sense, being ‘a bit of a lefty’ in anyone’s eyes would not be an issue for me. The unemployment issue is interesting: we are told that, as far as that goes, ‘we’ve never had it so good’, as MacMillan might have said…
          Alas, just like the Tories are not particularly conservative, Labour does not seem particularly interested in the real working men and women of Britain.

            If so, you then have to ask, what skin colour were Blair & Brown importing to the UK? It was overwhelmingly white.

            In fact, at the time, a concern I had lurking at the back of my mind was the possibility of trouble between young Poles, Romanians, Bulgarians & Czech incomers and our own BAME population of mostly West Indian and Indian of the second and third generations. I’m glad that that didn’t happen apart from isolated incidents like the Harlow murder – which was deliberately completely misunderstood and misrepresented by the BBC at the time – in 2016.

              Snuff:

              Under the Blair/Brown regime third world immigration increased massively, as part of their policy to rub the right’s nose in diversity.

              The mass immigration from Eastern Europe happened as an afterthought. What counted for them was getting as many third world voters over here as possible.

          Andy et al

          Any one reading my comments will know that I come from East London . I grew up in E17 and E10 – where the stabbing of the police officer took place .
          The latest update is that he will survive . At the moment we don’t know the heritage of either the officer or the criminal – but at some stage we will .

          Sometimes I think it’s worth remembering that there are some decent coppers doing their job whilst the ones lost to the constant ‘ celebration ‘ of the sexual identity overtakes their public duty .

          So hats off to the wounded policeman – I hope he recovers – and the chap who stabbed receives an appropriate level of justice .

          As was discussed yesterday – that sort of crime should be a ‘ capital ‘ one – but since this site is about the bias of the BBC such discussion should be elsewhere -in my personal view.

          I counted where the BBC placed this news in its early morning running order –
          After the UN saying eat less meat – anti trump – anti BoJo – and other wasted air .

          As for the wounded officer -I hope he went to the ‘ London ‘ and not whips x – one of the worst hospitals in the UK ….

            It’s probably quicker to wang along the A102 extension to The London than try to reach WhippsX.

                Have a friend fighting a NHS battle (in London) over misdiagnosis of late wife’s cancer and another (outside London) over errors in a relatively straightforward procedure that led, eventually, to death.

                The NHS is not anywhere close to sainthood and perfection as the Labour Party, the health unions and the BBC would like us to believe.

    This week has confirmed what I’ve been thinking for a long time, namely that Sky & ITV & C4 et al are no better than the disgusting BBC.
    Their antics regarding politicising mass murder have been a national disgrace.
    So I’m ditching the £120 a month SKY and have signed up for Netflix and Amazon Prime. These, along with Youtube, will form the basis of my viewing habits. Fox news clips through our smart TV and full shows about a day later on Youtube are an excellent antidote to the daily dreary drumbeat of Boris/Trump/Brexit/muslims.
    So today the cord has well and truly been cut.

      Talking about “inflicting ‘art’” on us; we see a great example of British art at the main stand at Silverstone race track.

      I’ve never seen such ugly buildings as that one.

      I suppose that fella Foster designed it at an astronomical cost.

      People like him should stick to poetry as we the viewers of said building “can’t see what your building is trying to tell us?”

      If you haven’t seen it. Think of a twice-folded envelope as if one side has been in the rain and been attacked by a dog and stretched.

      When we compare our track to the tracksa in Monaco, the middle east tracks, Brazil, the USA, Singapore etc etc they make our track look blue-peter ish.

    Apparently under the ridiculous act binding the length of parliaments – is a vote of no confidence is lost – then there is 14 days to reform a government otherwise a General Election is kicked off .

    Why go into this ?

    Well – the traitors return on 3 sept – meaning I’d a vote of no confidence is lost on that day a GE is called on 17?Sept . It takes 6? Weeks to run a General Election – which means that the vote would take place just after a50 expired on 31 Oct .

    Now the question will be whether there will be a drive to extend A50 in such circumstances

    However the chess pieces move that’s a hell of a lot of popcorn and more yet more MSM hysteria.

    For someone basically in the political wilderness, she does seem to be on our screens a awful lot.

      I assume Andrew Roberts knows a bit more than Sourbry. Perhaps the bBC will have him on?

      Paywall but can read it here or https://www.pressreader.com/uk/the-daily-telegraph/textview.

      Assuming that no government can be formed in the 14 day period after the vote of no confidence – an easy assumption to make, as who would be the prime minister who could command the confidence of a majority of this House of Commons? – then the general election would be held in early November, with Britain safely independent once again. All the fury and resentment of the bitter Remainers – Gina Miller, Tony Blair, Mr Grieve, The Times, John Major and so on – will have achieved absolutely nothing, although they could always start a campaign to try to rejoin the EU if they wanted. (Good luck with that!)

      Of course Mr Johnson does not need to resign the premiership immediately on losing the confidence vote in the event that no-one else can form a government, any more than James Callaghan did when he lost his confidence vote on 28 March 1979 but stayed on at No 10 until 4 May, in the only postwar example of a government losing a no-confidence vote.

      Further, as prime minister, it would be up to Mr Johnson to advise the Queen on whether to give Royal Assent to a bill passed by the Commons and Lords blocking a no-deal Brexit. It would be well within his rights to advise the Queen not to sign such a bill into law, for reasons that go back to the Civil War that Sir Malcolm mentioned. For since the mid-seventeenth century, it has been the People whose will has been sovereign in this country, as almost every political philosopher has agreed since the days of John Locke and David Hume.

      So when the moment comes […] that the Queen is presented by the Commons and Lords with a bill that bans a no-deal Brexit, Mr Johnson should emulate the ministers who advised Queen Anne not to sign the Scottish Militia Bill on 11 March 1708. On that occasion, her veto was recorded in the statute book with the words “La Reine se avisera” (The Queen will consider it). It is highly unlikely that Elizabeth II will depart from the most important of the provisions in our unwritten constitution, that the monarch acts upon the advice of her ministers. Every member of today’s Cabinet is now committed to a no-deal Brexit if necessary.

      So let us hope that BoJo IS committed.

    I (generally speaking) refuse to listen to or watch anything from the bBBC, however earlier today I was a passenger in a car, where the driver had Radio 1Xtra belting out from his speakers. It is 2 hours that I will never get back, and really emphasised some of the problems that we have today.

    The presenter was some BAME (naturally). His accent was that hideous one that so many of his kind have, where you’d hear the words “innit” and “my kommunity” every few minutes. He even spoke about his summer holidays where he went to that well-known Spanish island I-bee-fa.

    The songs they played seemed exclusively by BAME “singers”. I put that in quotes because most black singers of the last 30 years don’t actually sing, they seem to just make up crap rhymes about busting a cap in my bottom if I don’t pay for a Ho (you get the idea).

    Try comparing this with genuinely talented black singers of yesteryear – Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight. It really defies belief.

    And of course, this being the bBBC, there were lots of adverts. And these seemed to be all by BAME people talking about, er, the BBC.

    Jesus wept.

    With regard to the bbc’s bias by omission and misinformation.
    Does anybody on this site know much about the health concerns around the rollout of 5G (telecommunications)?

    A poster has appeared in the toilets at one of the the M1 services which led me to this;

    I find it cause for concern as I’m sure others will.
    Is it a legitimate concern or is it another example of environmentalist scaremongering?

    According to this, The Guardian got it wrong and they are in cahoots with the BBC;

    Maybe the BBC could “fact check” it for us.

    Readers may have noted the exchange above about Armstrong Motorcycles. I inevitably landed up in the hands of Wikipedia (usual disclaimers) and found something interesting.

    Plus ca change, as ‘they’ say.

    From Wiki page on William Armstrong:

    “However, just when it looked as if the new gun was about to become a great success, a great deal of opposition to the gun arose, both inside the army and from rival arms manufacturers, particularly Joseph Whitworth of Manchester. Stories were publicised that the new gun was too difficult to use, that it was too expensive, that it was dangerous to use, that it frequently needed repair and so on. All of this smacked of a concerted campaign against Armstrong. Armstrong was able to refute all of these claims in front of various government committees, but he found the constant criticism very wearying and depressing. In 1862 the government decided to stop ordering the new gun and return to muzzle loaders. Also, because of a drop in demand, future orders for guns would be supplied from Woolwich, leaving Elswick without new business. Compensation was eventually agreed with the government for the loss of business to the company. The government would not release the company from its agreement not to sell armaments abroad, so that avenue was closed to it. Eventually, the restriction was relaxed, and the company was able to sell guns to both sides in the American Civil War.” (My emphasis added in bold and italics.)

    This does, of course, relate to the constant anti-Brexit, anti-No-Deal Brexit, Project Fear propaganda from the BBC. I, and possibly the rest of the nation apart from the arch-Remainers and arch-Remoaners, find the constant criticism very wearying and depressing.

    All day they’ve been going on about things like losing the Amazon rainforest to grow palm oil or for cattle grazing.
    They are saying we should become vegetarians or eat insects.

    We keep hearing that we’re not building enough houses.
    Shortages of hospitals, water and other essentials.

    Crowded roads, long waiting times, more instances of things like road rage.

    In short, all (and so much more) caused by too many people.

    I’ve NOT heard any of these experts and other talking heads mention this one blindingly obvious cause of most of the problems which are getting worse day by day.
    How many people can we cram on to this planet.

    When there are too many people, nature finds a way to solve the problem. Either War, Disease or Pestilence and Famine.

    It’s inevitable.

    Is it just the very rich people, who want more and more consumers so that they can pocket more of the money that they love so much, who are in charge of making these decisions.

    Is it just the politicians like Blair who wanted more labour voters so he opened the doors wide to industrial scale mass immigration.

    Is it ‘peaceful’ religions who have huge numbers of children so that they will eventually become the majority and then take over from the infidels.

    Nobody today has given the simple answer that we, (and the planet), are overpopulated and show no sign of doing anything about it.

    I will no longer be here when we become a ‘stan’ but there is serious trouble ahead. Probably a war, the mother of all wars, followed by famine and disease and only then might the population be reduced enough (at least halved) to become sustainable.

    Then I expect we will start over again because mankind never learns.
    Lessons will not be learned.

    Have a nice day.

Refer to my previous post about the warnings I have come across regarding the rollout of 5G technology, where there has been little or no research into possible harmful effects on people, animals and the environment. But they are rolling it out anyway because money talks.

    I just had dinner with my back to the TV. The Londonistan
    Programme was on. I know as an indigenous Londoner that
    the programme is not meant for the likes of me. Most of
    the presenters and reporters are from the ethnic community.
    Fair enough I suppose because we indigenous Londoners are
    in a considerable minority now.
    Well fair enough , other than isn’t the BBC suppose to have
    as their number one agenda Diversity and Positive discrimination?
    I don’t see this with my indigenous minority.But back to tonight.
    I would like somebody to tell me if I heard this wrongly. And I
    apologise if I did.
    Asad Ahmad was in Leyton at the scene of where a policeman
    was attacked by “someone” with a machete . I say someone
    because I don’t think we have been told of the ethnicity of the
    scum. Ahmad was interviewing a witness to the atrocity. I believe
    the gentleman was of Caribbean origin. Although he asked not
    to be shown. And this is where my problem is. He was speaking
    in a very strong West Indian accent, almost a variety of Patois.
    I thought he said that the assailant was black, but there was plenty
    of police brutality in the area. Did I hear this correctly?
    If I did , was he picked by the editor of the programme to attack
    the police? I reiterate if I heard this interview incorrectly I
    apologise. Can anybody help?

    Congrats Italy! This week legislation to act against people smugglers, pretending to be ‘rescue ships’, went through the Senate and thus both houses of parliament have passed the strict measures into law.
    ‘Corriere della Sera’ reports that penalties of up to a million Euros await people like Carola Rackete, who pick ‘refugees’ up from the Lybian coast and dump them in Italy.
    These ‘humanitarians’ can also kiss their ships goodbye.
    Rackete told the German TV channel ZDF that it would be good if Europe took on about 50 million ‘climate refugees’.
    Italian Interior Minister, Matteo Salvini, has come to the rescue of Europe, but unfortunately he cuts a lonely figure; only Hungary and Macedonia are also standing firm against the invasion. Germany, under Merkel, is at the heart of the problem….

                    Grand agricultural projects were undertaken and many Hydroelectrical dams were built under the Presidency of Kamil Chamoun, a pro western Christian president. This was Lebanon’s golden age.

                    In 1958 however, the muslim Sunni community and in some way the Chiaa community too were starting to claim more political power.

                    They attempted a coup d’état to deposit the president but failed thanks to an American intervention. From now on Lebanon would only go down. Muslims wanted Pan-arabism in a country born to protect maronite Christians. Kamil Chamoon wasn’t allowed to run again for the presidency, fearing an uprising.

                    Then came the civil war, where Christians struggled to survive. A lot of them fled to the West, and at some point in the 80s were only about 23% of the population due to mass emigration.

                    After the war ended the political power now was in muslim hands with a weakened Christian president with no real powers and a 50/50 parliament. Christians began coming back and today they are around 40% of the population.

                    To sum up Christian Lebanon was a truly special state in the region. What destroyed it was the Pan-arabic movement and Pan-syrian nationalism, along with leftist uprisings. Today the state is fragile and fragmented with Muslim ex-warlords holding power in strategic positions. Corruption is frightening and the parliament is useless. The state is in heavy dept and the economy, while still better than the neighboring arab countries, is dead.

                    My country died to a point of no-return due to Muslims wanting PanArabism and PanSyrianism or Communism over Lebanon.

      DS,
      Yes, I caught part of that on R4 news at 2200. Well, well, what’s happened? I’m totally suspicious of the BBC’s motives in releasing the 56 year old’s name. The BBC are so utterly dishonest so there has to be a reason.
      On the BBC’s website it is reported that Boris has said, (the attack) “underscores for me the bravery of our police, people who actually go towards danger to keep us safer”. All the usual platitudes. He could, on behalf of the ruling class, apologise for previous Governments importing these savages. But there, I’ll dream on while looking forward to the importation of millions more muslims and Africans. The same. I hope the police understand that the extra 20,000 promised will not quell the British public’s disquiet and now, seething anger. That 20,000 will be current day ‘fairies’ who will not know what’s hit them as the number of attacks on the police surge.

    “Boris Unveils New Immigration Policy on Facebook Live”

    “”In another sign of the changing times, Boris has become the first Prime Minister to announce a new policy to the nation from his desk via Facebook Live.””

    “” Scheduled to hit commuters on the way home and in time for the evening news. Boris is introducing an immigration rule-change to make the UK “even more welcoming” to scientists from around the world. Global Brexit starting to take shape under someone who actually believes in it…””

    Yes, I rather think the bbc group w’nk into their lattes over tomorrows daily front page muzzie article may be put on hold over this, emergency meeting to find some bint in a headscarf who ever took an o level in science whingeing

    but not a thought about going to Cambridge to see the “other asians” such as Chinese studying science at PHD level because they are allowed out of the house to mix with the opposite sex and wear normal clothes ????

    Maybe “British (sic) muslims not consulted over Boris announcement” or something similar

      increased attacks on Jews ? coincidentally increased muslim population ? increased attacks on homosexuals ? attacks on Christians around the world ? racism and hate crime is alive and well Jews and homosexuals are not safe in muslim ghettos in this country and can be attacked without any mention in the news

      Police are investigating after a Muslim woman in a niqab hurled abuse at Gay Pride marchers in Walthamstow in north-east London at the weekend.

      Video published on social media shows the unidentified woman shouting “shame on you, you shameless people” and “God created Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve”.

      Waltham Forest Police tweeted: “Abusing someone because of their sexual orientation or gender identity is a hate crime.”

    Compared to the BBC reporting of the machete attack on the policeman (BTW, is it likely that a victim would be “stabbed” in a machete attack?), the fellow who made this U.S. video about a deadly knife incident in California makes some very familiar observations about the MSM over there. . . (5 1/2mins)

    I just had a quick of Twitter rankings of 4 people
    I know that TV exposure , particularly American can make a big difference
    – Maitlis , pretty rubbish not often going into thousands of LIKES
    .. consider that she a daily BBC platform
    – James O’Brien sometimes a thousand plus LIKES
    ..surprising low considering he has a daily show for 3 hours
    – Carole Cadwalladr occasional tweets breaking the ten thousand level, plus quite a few over a thousand
    .. but consider she has a Guardian editor platform
    – KTHopkins ..quite variable, but often over 1000 LIKES
    and on the first page recent tweets have 66K, and 32K likes
    .. yet she has no UK MSM platform

    BTW KT Hokins had the highest follower count at 1million
    but Piers Morgan is a different league with 6.7m followers
    but in likes he doesn’t do that great compared to Hopkins
    mostly 1000, some 8000, one anti-gun one got 24K

    I’m not drinking plant/nut/anything else based milk, other than the stuff that comes out of cows and goats, for any bugger. Will our Islamic friends give up meat and their slaughtering for the sake of the planet ? will they hell; but the way things are going they could be the largest religion on earth before long, and therefore will be the biggest group of meat eaters.

    When that happens, will the scientists/climate activists et al have the guts to tell a few billion that they cant eat meat anymore ?

    Funny how the pig is outlawed in a couple of religions, and now we are being informed there won’t be any bacon after Brexit. Are we being told something ? I’m not giving up bacon either.
