    Feedback continues to get more ridicuous. This week they find a listener that thinks the programme plays a vital role in holding the BBC to account and who worries that Ofcom is in the government’s pocket. (Cue John McEnroe).

    That led onto a piece from Ofcom, (nothing about the BBC), Barry Cryer telling us that each generation creates its own style of comedy but he thinks we need more ‘silly’ because that always works and two women coerced into listening to a programme that they wouldn’t normally have listened to.

    From this I conclude that nobody is unhappy with the BBC or nobody can be bothered to contact Feedback because, as we all know, “we got it just about right”.

    I was going to say that Sunday evening had lost its comedy slot but according to the BBC Cooking in a Bedsitter is a comedy. Really? I thought it was a naff story full of stereotype characters.
    Stillicide on the other hand is described as being an ‘electrifying new series’. I thought the power cuts were over, apparently not. I can’t wait for the other eleven parts. Time to load up some new music on the USB memory stick to while away my car miles.

    UI cannot tell you about the bias on BBC1 news at 10pm Sunday. Mr D lasted seconds when I was out the room making tea, said his blood pressure couldn’t stand it and switched off Something about the Government and before they had said anymore the BBC had on (and I quote ‘some red haired, red lipped bint to rubbish the government”s initiative’), I presume he meant one of Her Majest’s loyal opposition.

    But I was really coming on here to moan about Countryfile. We had Tom Heap with an eco warrior moaning about plastic in our soil. He and the SJW stood by a field of wheat moaning about manure containing plastic being spread on the crop. Well as far as I understand as dung is being flung it falls to the ground and doesn’t stick to the wheat ears, and the plastic in the dung will hit the ground about 18 inches from the edible grains.

    They then had an item about plastic in animal feed. The woman scientist (naturally) had the grace to admit they had no proof it caused problems for man or beast, but it might. She highlighted the breakdown of plastic bags into smaller and smaller particles which was, I thought, because governments had insisted on plastic bags having to degrade. And while I would prefer neither me or my beef/lamb eating plastic, Tom Heaps report was littered with maybes, perhaps and mights. So no evidence whatsoever.

    And of course we had to have an item about Climate Change. The farmer growing black currants for Ribena, saying the problems caused with his crop should there be no frosts. This year’s crop looked good, so obviously last winter not a problem Some years ago (perhaps 10), I remember reading an article in Farmers Weekly that growers were concerned that without frosts, blackcurrants wouldn’t fruit. But this farmer was suggesting without frosts the fruit would not ripen evenly. The programme showed us a mechanical harvester. It is a common problem in horticulture that’d make you think to enable a harvester rather than human pickers to take the crop you need it all to be ripe at once. So this item was about maximising a crop picked by machine and nothing about climate change, but obvious that the grower wanted to be on the tele and knew the magic words to get publicity.

    No blonde bimbo though, so Countryfile gets one mark!

      Radio 4 was doing berries too In Business – Berries Galore.

      A strange programme that seemed to start off as the usual ‘we are all doomed’ Brexit stuff because we rely on Bulgarian Berry Pickers, (what do they do out of season, claim UK unemployment pay?). Not only might Brexit cause problems but depending on the value of the pound and how well things are doing in Bulgaria they might not want to work here.
      However they then moved on to Spain, similar story, different foreign workers, suggestions of bringing people in from South America.
      I’m not too sure what the ‘angle’ or conclusion was. Farmers will only do what pays? Nothing new there. I suspect there will either be more automation, (the strawberries in the UK weren’t being grown in the ground but in baskets), or Africa might start producing more, (but that will need their new Chinese colonial masters to do it for them).
      Whatever happens, wherever disaster can be scented, Tom Heap will be there!

      Good summary Deborah. Myself and Mrs doobster78 have watched countryfile for years, alas, no more !!.

      Have been tuning in less and less over the past few months and that is 100% due to the constant agenda pushing, ‘re plastics etc.

      However, as you say, yesterday was a whole new level and that has finished us off for good. A decent programme, ruined by preaching and virtue signalling. Shame. But that’s the BBC for you.

        Mrs O’Blene and I stopped watching it many years ago, especially after seeing it ‘advertised’ in our freebie paper yesterday.

        It used to a quaint, easy end to a tumultous weekend, dealing with small lanes, tiny animals, a few visits to pleasant places etc.

        It’s now typical dribbling bbbc dross, run by climate idiots supported by guardian non-articles and of very little use to practically anyone.

      ajs, great motorcycles. Let’s make great motorcycles great again.

      Good spot. You beat me to it.

      I noted 1. that the Beeb realised what a non-entity Caroline Lucas is, so had to use the article title ‘Green MP calls for all-female emergency cabinet’ (note the small ‘c’) instead of her name to gain attention, and, 2. rather unkindly put a very made up Lucas (New hair-do, Caroline? Very slick.) in front of a mauve background which rendered her skin colour with a hint of a green tint. (Before you ask, yes, my monitor is OK colour-wise.)

      You have to admire Caroline Lucas’s chutzpah. The previous female PM was a disaster.

      The career of the only other example ended in dismal failure (of her own making) and adding another twenty-eight female, or more, Cabinet (note the large ‘C’) members seems a recipe for total meltdown.

    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/aug/11/boris-johnson-plot-to-subvert-democracy-is-more-dangerous-than-brexit-itself
    Guardian Opinion Brexit
    Sun 11 Aug 2019 09.00 BST

    Mr Johnson’s plot to subvert democracy is more dangerous than Brexit itself
    Andrew Rawnsley

    In the absence of a formal constitution, British democracy is heavily reliant on politicians acting with honour

    [Rawnsley is a well known Beeboid with his nose as deep in the champagne socialist trough as anyone.
    The author is concerned, very concerned, that Brexit will occur.
    Very concerned that the current PM will use, if necessary, little known, and rarely used, parliamentary subterfuges.
    Subterfuges, which he denounces.

    Not denoumced, is the referendum result, the 2017 general election result, the 2017 election manifestos, the parliamentary votes in favour of Brexit.
    Not denounced are the zillions of broken promises from MPs to respect the referendum result.
    Not denounced are the subsequent zillions of treasonous parliamentary plots to thwart Brexit, using any and all parliamentary tactics.
    Assisted, with alacrity, by the ordure ordure organism.

    Not denounced are the recent multi-party commitments to honour the result of a second Brexit referendum, but only if the “correct” result is attained.

    Not only are these, any many other Remainiac democratic abuses, not denounced, they are as totally absent from this article as honour is in Remain MPs.

    Naturally this non-argument contains the usual “calamity crashing out of the EU” hyperbole to which we have become accustomed, accompanied by zero evidence and failure to mention that his beloved EU is collapsing.

    Fear not Andrew, the usual far left Remainiac traitors, are being bussed in to support your bollox {to Brexit} article BTL.]

    Not sure if this has yet been covered by the BBC, but, apparently there is this NEW phenomenon called “chicken shop grooming”!
    Wow. Allegedly, children are being given ‘free’ food in return for doing bad things, in this case, we are told drug running.
    No mention of the “chicken shop” owners, so I presume it must be the chicken shop itself that does the so called “grooming”
    If they’re not careful, with all this “chicken shop grooming” the barbers shops will be going out of business.
    Now, I wonder why these chicken shop groomed drug runners are being highlighted, but the chicken shop groomed rape victims haven’t been?

        I think you’ll find they are often the same kind of employees you find at kebab shops. Not the big KFC outlets maybe, but there’s plenty of smaller independent businesses selling the greasy muck to people coming back from the pub.

    where at least 75% of its news presenters, political reporters
    are women, the suggestion by Caroline Lucas must be the
    greatest opinion they have ever heard.
    Just think of it ” Strictly ” with just women dancing . Match of the

    NO GARY LINEKER. When this stage of the emancipation is

      If I was one of Lammy’s constituents (God forbid), I would be asking him why he isn’t concentrating on doing his sodding job that I’m helping to pay for.

      Imagine him being in the private sector and doing this, he’d be out on his ear in the first week.

      If it was the public sector, there would be a ‘word’, after a month there would be a ‘meeting’, six months later a disciplinary meeting, another six months and then he would be transferred sideways to another job. And so the cycle begins again……….

    Another day and another attempt by Boris Johnson’s state broadcaster, the BBC, to smear Trump with Epstein’s crimes.
    Well done Boris, just a tweet criticizing the BBC might persuade some of your followers that official British hostility to the US does not continue from Treezer May.

      Simple bring back Capital Punishment and stop building more prisons which only helps the criminal but bankrupts the government and keeps the tax payer poor. With modern ways of catching serious criminals inc forensics, thereby executing an innocent is zero. Suppose we have to be told that the public would not sanction such a move-I don’t agree, its the government that just cannot bring itself to surrender to a final deterent.

    “Consequently there was a long period during which nearly every thinking man was in some sense a rebel, and usually a quite irresponsible rebel. Literature was largely the literature of revolt or of disintegration. Gibbon, Voltaire, Rousseau, Shelley, Byron, Dickens, Stendhal, Samuel Butler, Ibsen, Zola, Flaubert, Shaw, Joyce — in one way or another they are all of them destroyers, wreckers, saboteurs. For two hundred years we had sawed and sawed and sawed at the branch we were sitting on. And in the end, much more suddenly than anyone had foreseen, our efforts were rewarded, and down we came. But unfortunately there had been a little mistake. The thing at the bottom was not a bed of roses after all, it was a cesspool full of barbed wire.

            I was thinking along similar lines, at the root of it my guess is that the above video shows a glimpse of people who have been so over indulged they’ve never had to grow up. The infantile behaviour displayed has served them well, so why change it. As they have aged, not matured, it’s all about control, imposing themselves on and controlling others. Thats my tuppence worth of barrack room psychoanalysis anyway, I bet a trained shrink would have a field day with em.

    Where are we ? UK or Middle East? The UK’s highest-ranking Asian police chief Neil Basu has said that Muslims should not be forced to “assimilate” with other sections of the general population.
    At this rate, it won’t be long until the burka becomes mandatory for all English schoolgirls.
    Non-Muslim schoolgirls in Lincolnshire, England, are being asked to don the Islamic hijab headscarf for a day in November. Ghada Mohamed of the Lincoln Muslim Sisters Forum is organising the event, which she hopes will be taken up by high schools all around the country. How about, in the interest of fairness and equality, of course, Muslim children will have to wear a crucifix on a chain for a day? We have been warned of the dangers of Multiculturalism but no heed to those warnings is being taken. What would you say if a parent of a pupil at that school and were white and a follower of Christian values?

    This really does epitomise the worst of this counterproductive trend that has emerged in the last few years of trying to enforce this bizarre form of equality by excluding meritocracy.

    Those who have jumped on this band wagon are merely trying to self-elevate themselves in their own little minds.

    Wow, just wow. Imagine suggesting an emergency cabinet of just white, pro-brexit men? It’s somewhat unpalatable, as is this. Male remainers are unable to co-operate (with the exception of Grieve), whereas our female counterparts excel at it. Really… I guess us chaps will just have to try harder. And MP’s wonder why there is a disconnect with the people they are supposed to represent

    These deluded sexist remarks are outrageous.

    If a prominent Tory called for an all-male cabinet as women only “get in the way” he would quite rightly be forced to resign the whip.

    So should Ms. Lucas unless she attends misandy recognition classes (…look it up)

    Secondly we’ve just had a female prime minister. That went well didn’t it….??

    In the actual quote he uses the fact the Queen Mother although not a health freak, lived a long time
    to say hopefully the Queen will also live to 100 plus so we have less of Global Warming nutter Prince Charles

    Farage quote
    “When it comes to her son, Charlie Boy & climate change, ..Her mother, the Queen’s mother was a slightly overweight, chain-smoking gin drinker who lived to 101 years old.
    All I can say is Charlie Boy is now in his 70s… may the Queen live a very, very long time”

    Apparently he has teamed up with a man called Abdi who is a “chicken shop” owner.
    Supposedly these kids are going hungry ( ya no wot a mean) and will do anything for food as they are poor and not being fed at home.
    Flies in the face of the child obesity narrative of the BBC doesn’t it?
    So it’s clearly not the responsibility of the chicken shop owners who are exploiting these children it’s all down to ring poor and the lack of opportunihi apparently. Must be the governments fault.

      That case is a good indicator of where freedom of speech is going in Blighty – something so trivial – distasteful to some and funny to others – lands up in a criminal court with the fully taxpayer funded lawyers pretending it is necessary to take it into court – because they get cash from the case .

      Meanwhile illegal immigrates wash up from France and incur no penalty at all – in fact they get a complementary trip to a Benefits Office ….. something wrong somewhere .

      Meanwhile – the Conservative party desperately attempts to get right thinking people back from Nigel Farage be re annoucing stuff which won’t happen – like more prison places and more police community pacification officers ….. busily reviewing you tube for ‘offensive ‘ material to put people in the new prisons .

      Talking of which – it’s notable that the Stasi are preventing TR from receiving mail on ‘national security ‘ grounds .

      You can imagine those people sitting around working up a new attack angle to destroy any morale TR might have . Can’t starve him or poison him this time as people noticed last time so use a bit of psychological torture this time . Same with disrupting visits …
      They’ll try and find another reason to extend his sentence or ‘have an accident ‘ . What a waste of a prison place . I wonder how the judge is ?

            This is my thinking to date. I think the smell hovers around the promise of Brexit. Boris is very likely Remain plan 2. A deal will be made just before Nov 1st. A look at the close details will reveal how much we will be tied to the EU superstate. We shall see.

            Not sure if Nigel will have any effect, and hopes for UKIP floundered after I saw the new leader with his Pinochet T shirt.

    The End is Nigh. The Climate Emergency means that the world will end on the 31st October 2019. This will involve Lib-Dems and other Remainers throwing themselves off Cliffs at five minutes to midnight. The all Women Cabinet will bring doom, gloom and failure, as it divides Remain supporters into Female Dictators, and powerless Male Remainers, who therefore join with and support Michel Barnier, who has a very low opinion of female diplomacy, due to Theresa May. Therefore expect Greta to advise the Government to set up an all schoolgirl Cabinet. It will be politically incorrect and illegal to think this is a bad idea, therefore very likely to happen. The BBC will confirm that this is a very good idea.
