Weekend Open Thread 17 August 2019

The anti democratic – biased pro EU BBC continues to run daily episodes of Project Fear in the run up the the UK leaving the EU. Desperate amateur repeats after Three Years of Pro EU Propaganda . Luckily the British People are far more intelligent than the BBC thinks . Let’s hope it pays the price for deceit and lies in time .

    Just clicked Sky News on as I’ve got half a hour to waste between Endeavour finishing on ITV3 and the film.version of Porridge.

    Sky understandably is leading with coverage of the police officer who was murdered on Thursday night, thought I’d check what the bbc was saying about and instead they are waffling on about the bloody Sudan.

    ETA: they are just showing it now at 12.11am. Disgusting.

    I admit I cried when I heard the news Friday morning, my brother is a serving officer for WMP who of course had a officer seriously injured in Moseley a week ago.

    My brother is just rank and file, a PC who really tries to make a difference, but he said to me a few weeks ago, they are losing the streets, and he can only see it getting worse. He’s been a officer for a long time, and he says after what has happened the last couple of weeks, he’s seriously thinking of leaving.

    So, please I know some of you don’t have a high opinion of the police, but there are many, many officers like my brother trying to make a difference. He’s on shift tonight and frankly I’m terrified as is my mom.

      Lady B, I have a high opinion of most police officers who do a thankless and often dangerous job, and are pretty much all that stand between us and chaos. However my opinion of much of the higher echelons of police management such as Cressida Dick and co is let us just say is more than a little bit negative.

      By their slavish adherence to a PC agenda, Not only have they put the public at risk by allowing criminals to be unpunished, they have reduced the public’s confidence and respect in the police and also put their own officers at risk by recruiting for PC attitudes first rather than suitability for the job, and allowing, naive politicians to push through a dangerous, PC, liberal agenda, rather than protesting as they should.

      To be honest – I am surprised that anyone so obviously decent and diligent like your brother would want to do this job anymore – He must find it very frustrating, and theres the danger, when people like him and similair individuals have finally had enough, what will we be left with?

      But then again, maybe thats why they do it .

      Lady B. For the lack of anything to watch on the main channels, I sometimes watch the Police camera programmes. Morale must be so low. The police appear to be shown no respect, the spitting and the swearing, the public who know every twist and turn, but then should they be found guilty, get a suspended sentence of a week for dealing in drugs etc. However should I drive at 34 miles an hour in the unbuilt up area leaving my village….. I do hope Priti can bring back some vigour to the system. I noticed the other day the BBC reporting research which shows that short sentences, in the BBC’s words ‘don’t work ‘. I thought prison was supposed to be a punishment.

      Meantime, I hope your brother keeps safe.

      Fully agree with you Lady. As I said recently I was a critic of the Police. Clearly your Brother is one of the many thousands of other officers who do their job the best they can and for that I and millions of other “critics” of the UK Police service hold my hands up and apologise if I in any way offended your Brother or good yourself.

      Sadly we have a weak PC ridden government and a lame PC Police Force.

      I live in a small market town. In twenty years I have had a few interactions with the police, usually helping or reporting incidents.

      Empirically, the ones who arrive, professional and polite, in the small hours, are ones I have never seen before, and are amazing.

      Utterly let down by the entitled slobs I see all too often mainly concerned with shrugging off anything as beneath them.

      Lady B,
      I also concur with your thoughts. But, sorry, as in most other things, the ‘rank and file’ can object en masse if they so desire.
      And for the point about where it’s all going, I don’t think there is one contributor here that doesn’t fully understand that when the S hits the fan, our ‘boys in blue’ are increasingly unable to protect the public. Worse is to come: merely looking at crime in the Middle East, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan will serve as a glimpse into the not too distant future. The importation of hoards of people who have no respect for the ‘niceities’ of the West will finally finish off the West, compliments of all recent Governments who, to a party, all pursue left wing Marxist policies.

        Exactly so. We are living through the steady erosion of those values and behaviours which once bound us, the British, so firmly together. The liberal left despised those values and have been steadily undermining them for decades . It was apparent to many of us that liberalisation of our laws was likely to lead us to a destination where law and order broke down completely and we are approaching that point. The deLiberate importation of millions of aliens has speeded that process up and has probably made it irreversible.
        Most of our institutions have been captured by the liberals who have changed the ethos of those institutions. They have selected those of like mind for promotion and penalised anyone who didn’t buy into the new liberal ethos. This liberal order is world wide and the struggle of Trump , Brexit, Salvini, Le Pen, AfD etc is that of the people trying to rid themselves of these liberal Globalists. We can see in the UK and USA how hard it is to break free.

          “We can see in the UK and USA how hard it is to break free”……. If we ever will. I have serious doubts about that possibility, even in the US with a President such as the current one. The only policy now is to prepare as best as you can. Savages can, as we see all too often now, come at you in unexpected circumstances or times. “Expect the unexpected” is now truer than at any time in the history of the so-called, “Developed World”

            G,
            In my gloomier moments, perhaps I should say more realistic moments, I think that we are living through the last days of democratic nation states and the last days of the West. The unholy alliance of Islam and liberal Globalists are leading us down the road to hell. Surely this partnership of almost exact opposites can’t be sustainable? Perhaps all that we can do is to hope that these highly unlikely bed fellows fall out and that somehow or other common sense and western values are able to reassert themselves in the ensuing chaos.

              The partnership of exact opposites? Yes, for now. Until the West has fallen, then it will be Globalists v islam. Islam is riding the Globalist wave until it suits them and then, their ‘opposite’ nature will emerge with a vengeance. In that eventual contest I know which side I’d put a tenner on right now.

    Owen Jones ‘kicked in head’ in London street attack

    Police are investigating after Labour activist Owen Jones was “kicked in the head” by a group of men outside a pub.
    [Labour activist, he is a communist, he caught the disease through his mothers milk. He is also an embittered homosexual whose hate filled public statements contain plenty of nastiness.]

    Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said an attack on a journalist was “an attack on free speech and our fundamental values”.
    [Free speech? Labour have attacked free speech since 1948, as do their lovable imports who also vote multiple times. Fundamental values, people climb over electrified fences with machine gun towers to escape your fundamental values.]

    Shadow attorney general Shami Chakrabarti said: “This is a very febrile moment in Britain – and I’m sure that everyone, regardless of their politics, will want to send their solidarity to Owen Jones.”
    [Send their solidarity, what superb English. His idols killed 100 million people Shammy, so plenty of people will send their best wishes to his attackers.]

    Shadow home secretary Diane Abbott was one of hundreds of people to respond to Mr Jones’s tweet about the incident, saying: “The times we live in are increasingly dark and dangerous”.
    [It is darkies like you that make it dangerous.]

        The incident has probably been exaggerated. From what I’ve seen and read about Mr Jones, he does tend to hyperbole; for example his reporting of attendance numbers at protests in London.
        He’s probably suffering attention grabbing withdrawal symptoms. In his little mind, he’s only relevant if he’s in the news.

        No apologies required, there is so much bias, from an increasing number of culprits, reported in an increasing number of sites like BBBC, that it is difficult to monitor it all.

        Far better that the bias is reported multiple times than not at all.
        If some other BBBC contributor can do a better job than I can (which happens frequently) in exposing the bias I am delighted.

        Working for the abolition of the poisonous BBC is a joint effort, not a competition.

      Scare stories in the media are based on ‘leaked’ contingency planning documents.
      The media conveniently ignore the fact that all potential ‘issues’ are resolvable or have already been resolved.

      Article by Lee Rotherham.
      https://brexitcentral.com/beware-of-reports-fuelling-no-deal-hysteria-based-on-documents-which-actually-provide-reassurance/
      It is frankly about time that, after years now of the poison of Project Fear being dripped into the public consciousness, journalists get a grip of what contingency planning documents are for, what they contain, and what they mean. They are designed to stress test the most likely course of events, and contemplate the most dangerous set of circumstances. Simply listing the prospects, however remote, of a set of events happening does not mean that they will happen, especially not all of them at the same time …

    I know I’m going to state the obvious but I need to say it anyway:

    The main issue with Brexit is a power struggle.

    Brexit is removal of power from those who currently have it, to those to whom it rightly belongs.

    That’s why the withdrawal process is taking such a long time; it’s human nature for the psychopaths, sociopaths and narcissists in power to hang on to it for as long as they can and using any means available to them.

    And that’s why we cannot allow them to win. I hope that’s recognised by Mr Johnson and is a key factor in his determination to get us out as soon as possible.

    All the other issues that occupy the lying MSM and the treasonous Civil Servants and politicians in the HoP are of secondary importance. They have to be ignored and sidelined until we are out.

    Just watching little Owen Jones on the BBC giving his account of the “far right” attack on him the other night.
    Although these brutal assailants didn’t utter a syllable as they assaulted him we know they’re far right because he’s mentioned them at least fifteen times.
    I thought he’d had a severe beating; FFS there’s not a mark on him.
    As you can imagine the BBC are putting him through the most intense questioning (chortle) to make sure he’s telling the truth.
    I’ve got a feeling the Beeb and Sky will be running with this “attack” for days. But take a close look at his mush, not an abrasion or a bruise in sight. This is ludicrous.
    I’ve had worse experiences when Millwall came down to Craven Cottage.

        Am I wrong in thinking that this is perverted. Not necessarily that he was aroused but that he thinks it’s appropriate to write about it.

        I remember, probably in the 1970s reading a Jilly Cooper article where she described her young son’s semen stained pyjamas. That was the last time I read anything that this perverted woman wrote. You see, the making of perversion normal has been a long time in the process.

    Ah, Ken Clarke, the Mr. Chips of the political world, has said that he would take on the role of caretaker prime minister, if it was the only way to stop Brexit. Overlooked, time and time again throughout his political career he would, if asked, at this time of crisis and uncertainty for the United Kingdom, take the helm and steady the ship, and navigate it through the Brexit storm back into the safe harbour of the EU. Unifying the country, healing the wounds, and ignoring democracy. Well known for giving solidity to pure wind, it would be a touching epitaph for such a traitorous, pompous and self-satisfied egotist.

    There is a feature on the BBC Website “Can you read this famous
    illegible handwriting?” I would sooner be able to understand
    some of the accents and more like dialects we are hearing on
    the BBC , in the name of diversity.
    On the breakfast programme there was a lady reviewing the
    newspapers apparently something to do with a university in
    Liverpool. This Scouser made Jamie Carragher sound like Stephen
    Fry! I honestly had to listen very closely what she had to say ,to
    understand every other word.
    I suppose I am being reactionary and its fun to hear some of the
    continuity presenters speaking in a kind of Patois. But maybe the
    BBC should go a bit further in encouraging us to know that
    the folk they are employing are of Caribbean stock. How about

        “A national broadcaster should reflect the range of accents, instead of shoving London accents at us all the time.”

        Surely a national broadcaster should be understandable by everyone and, to me, that means that the stronger accents which verge on dialects should go. Unfortunately, these days ‘regional accent’ (and that includes London) tends to be an excuse for sloppy enunciation and a virtual absence of grammar.

        I don’t hear London accents all the time. Far from it, in fact.

        I know a lot of people will disagree with this but, IMO, there are times when equality simply doesn’t make sense. Call me old fashioned but there’s a lot to be said for RP.

          I agree Helen, just to hear someone enunciate the Queen’s English in a manner we can understand would be a bonus. Any accent is pretty useless to be honest. A southerner does have difficulty understanding a Georgie, and a Cornish accent may not be understood in Liverpool.

          I remember Sue Lawley – a presenter on the old BBC teatime programme Nationwide, who articulated beautifully, and was surprised to learn she was actually a Brummie, but took elocution lessons before she applied for tv work. And of course accents can become diluted when attending university.

          The unseen voices who link the programmes are the worst. On Ch4 there is a heavy Caribbean patois which cannot be deciphered, and many Australians.

          I’m not saying we should return to the days of Sylvia Peters / McDonald Hobley / Kenneth Baker (Google if you don’t know), but being without accent is no bad thing in communication.

    We continuously get project fear doom documents ‘leaked’ to the sympathetic Remainstream media showing that the World will come to an end if we exit the eu with a ‘so called’ no deal (although the WA is not a deal either)
    Each ‘prediction’ assumes the absolute worst of all possibilities and that we do absolutely nothing to mitigate them, we just sit there twiddling our thumbs.

    Well.
    How about the first prediction from the Remainstream media of remaining in the eu using the standard remainer method, of assuming the worst of all possibilities and that nothing is done to mitigate anything.
    If they get their way (they won’t) and we stay in the eu then what about our ever rising contributions, having to change to the euro (and how much it will cost), the liabilities we would have to pay as the euro fails, the liabilities to the failed states currently being hidden or misreported to us, the conscription of our teenagers into the eu Army (no restrictions on eu travel I suppose when going to Ukraine for example), the ever increasing control from an unelected central gang and loads more negatives.

    This mornings ‘Times’ leak is already discredited, coming from May’s government and a remainer mp.
    It’s out of date and incorrect.
    Not that it matters to remainers and the Remainstream media of course.

    Thanks to someone earlier for the Remainstream media name updating the MSM used until now.

      Never let an opportunity go past to have a dig. . .
      A short while ago on Radio 2, Matt Lucas played Forever Young by German synth-pop band Alphaville. He then proceeded to say that while it was widely a hit all over Europe, it only reached no.98 in the UK, because we still weren’t keen on Germans in the Eighties, but these days we’re okay with them. . . “except for Nigel Farage,” he continued, “even though he’s married to one.”
      Not even factually correct, since Nena reached no.1 here the same year with 99 Red Balloons (99 Luftballons). Kraftwerk and Trio didn’t do so badly either, IIRC.
      Matt Lucas is sitting in for the absent Paul O’Grady – replacing like with like, I suppose.

        The kill rate might have something to do with the eight convergent Browning .303 guns which, even though smaller calibre, produced greater weight of firepower.
        As for the Yanks, their Curtis fighters of the same period were under-armed deathtraps, and most early versions of their most successful, the RR Merlin engined Mustang, carried the same Spitfire/Hurricane armament. Later versions had two 50cal canon and four .30cal machine guns – similar armament to later Spitfires and Hurricanes.

    Hopefully flowers will be placed at the scene of the attack and the lights on Big Ben will be dimmed. Perhaps that bloke with a piano on his bike will turn up to give us a rendering of Lennon’s Imagine.

    Consider this. Owen was with six friends. They were attacked by 3 to 4 men, and were unable to defend the birthday boy. Says something about the predicted power of the socialist revolution.

      It hates disruption.
      How will Mason react when senior civil servants warn
      of the disruption that a Labour government will cause to the economy?

        I heard Mr Embery speak in Parliament Sq on 29/03. To my mind, he spoke a great deal of sense, and the actions of the lefty scum after that told a true story about the TUC activists.

      I don’t wish to answer my own question but I’m sure if it was a high profile male singer then it would be front and centre 👍

      I understand that the parents of this Islamic terrorists had been convicted of aiding terrorism ?

      It seems a pity their nationality can’t be revoked too .

    All these shortages.
    Very worrying.
    Since there will not be (according to the remainstream media), enough to go round, rationing will need to be introduced.
    My rationing policy is that Leavers get food and drugs.
    The traitors who have tried to thwart Brexit for 3+ years, starve, unless they die of disease first.

      I’ve no doubt at all that the EU mafia, coupled with the willing assistance of our very own extremist, anti British propaganda machine -namely- almost all of what we see, hear and read, can make life rather uncomfortable for the British voter. However, being a child of the 1940s, I still have faith that our people will see the light and do what is right.

    BBC Wales tweeted a news webpage with this phrase
    ‘There can be no doubt now that our planet is in crisis’

    The actual title of the page is
    “Climate emergency:
    What are Welsh businesses doing?”

    #1 thing on the page : Making bikinis from waste plastic found on the beach.
    WTF how does that take energy out of the Climate system ?
    Does it reduce sea-level rise ?

    #2 Delivering products in glass bottles
    Nope cleaning and transporting glass uses more energy than using plastic
    particularly if waste plastic is converted into fuel.

    #3The weigh and buy shop
    Yes zero packaging reduces energy waste.
    But them handmaking products increases energy use.
    (Around here such shops have all closed in the last 15 years)

    Bottomline : Ocean waste, air pollution & GlobalWarming are all separate issues
    eg burning more wood increases air pollution.
    But #FakeGreens see everything as their GreenDream Religion

    ‘Police in London have appealed for witnesses after Labour activist Owen Jones was attacked by a group of men.’ – https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-49390285

    Why is this being reported as if it’s established fact?

    It isn’t. It’s just an allegation.

    If Jones really had been set upon by a group of far right thugs, isn’t it likely that he’d have more to show for it than a cat scratch and a bump on his head?

    You don’t have to be Columbo to realise that a targeted attack by a group of lads is going to lead to far more serious injuries than that.

    What’s more likely is that he got into a bit of a alcohol-fuelled disagreement and it escalated into a minor scuffle.

    It’s the sort of thing that happens every weekend outside pubs and clubs up and down the country, and has naff all to do with politics. But I guess that doesn’t fit the narrative of the far right being on the rise…

      Strange that master jones describes the alleged incident as a Far Right job and not as homophobic or otherwise . The baddies must have introduced themselves . Useful to be a ‘victim ‘.

    It is rather clear a major problem to be faced is that the brain donors who now seek political office here appear to think acquiring their information and education from the BBC alone is adequate.

        It’s incredible that
        812 have retweeted her
        but 2.2K have replied more to disagree
        but 3.1K have Liked her tweet
        ..so she hasn’t been completely Ratioed
        .. replies calling her out get about 640 likes

        @Taff could we say that she is head a Nationalist Anti-English party
        so it is no surprise that she is in support of these angry hate people

        Antifa is of course an ambush-name, cos it doesn’t mean what you think it means
        Rather lefty political activists use it as a shield to attack political opponents
        They do not call out pro-black and other racist behaviour on their own side.
        They very much act as an identity politics group who HATE those outside their group.
        (left political groups often use such ambush names)

    This time next year we’ll all be laughing when we think about the traitors in the past who tried to destroy Brexit.

    Meanwhile, a clip from the recent Dunkirk film. Spitfires heading for Dunkirk to try and protect the evacuation. The controller in the background is the voice of Michael Caine, a Brexiteer! I knew there’d be a connection 🙂
