    Kidnapped and raped a woman after his release and was jailed in 2009

    I can’t believe that after two whole days the BBC are still going on about Trump suggesting buying Greenland as if he was a Nasty Meglomaniac!

    It was so obviously a tongue-in-cheek wind-up.

    The man is a very naughty genius and he has got days of repetitive publicity from this at the expense of our national broadcaster as well as the gullible Government in the Netherlands…

    You really would think this would be filtered out and simply reported as an aside by any sensible group of people yet they swallowed it hook line and sinker because they wanted to try desperately to embellish and use it make him look as foolish as possible.

    Quite the reverse Ha! Ha! Ha!

    The bias is so, so deep it’s breathtaking!

    I also bet Greenland (which I just bought!) that Trump does not sit at his laptop in his pyjamas at night tapping out this stuff.

    I bet it was written by one of Trumps 20-something social team too!

    On the other hand it would make a hell of a golf course!

    ‘200,000 homeless children herded into used shipping containers’ or words to that effect. Quite shocking. Shades of slamming doors, Dachau etc, etc.
    Except… the containers are fully converted, effectively the equivalent of static ‘mobile’ homes and provide a viable, effective and sensible answer to a major housing problem.
    Not as good as the first impression though, especially on radio…

    News today has highlighted the plight of those living in converted shipping containers. All are of foreign persuasion, one couple arrived in 2014 from Somalia expecting to be housed in a 2 bed flat , another arrived in 1996 from Kenya and has 4 children but no father around.

    I remember these containers being hailed as a great recycling engineering, where those in need had a roof over their heads instead of walking the streets.

    I’m not saying ‘what do they expect’, but would we pitch up in the capital city of another European city and expect to be housed ? try doing that in Paris I say. I wouldn’t live in London for a kings ransom, but many would love to, especially those that have to commute for their jobs everyday. Yet there are hundreds of thousands that are somehow able to live in tower blocks or tree lined avenues paid for by the local authorities, while the rest of the indigenous population can go swivel.

      BRISSLES, I read a report about this in the “Metro” newspaper where a “homeless refugee” from Sudan was complaining that the living conditions were “worse than Eretrea and Sudan”. She was apparently having to wash her child on the floor with cups of water because the child was too big to fit in the sink.
      I wonder how and where she used to wash the child back home or if she had the fully fitted kitchenette and furnished accommodation. Talk about ungrateful.
      Oh and look at the way the Metro were singing the praises to these “entrepreneurs” when they were going to convert these containers and house “Bristols homeless”
      This is the con, you see, making everyone believe that these ideas are for our indigenous homeless. But it’s a lie and these people get the freebies for which they are ungrateful whilst the actual “Bristol homeless” and veterans sleep in shop doorways.
      Have a look how well these containers are knitted out. I bet most real Bristol homeless would be eternally grateful for somewhere like this to lay their heads.

      Funny they weren’t complaining about the containers they were hiding in at Calais to get into the country.

    BTW:

    Phthalates have been thoroughly studied and reviewed by a number of government scientific agencies and regulatory bodies world-wide and these agencies have concluded that phthalates used in commercial products do not pose a risk to human health at typical exposure levels. Information collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention over the last 10 years indicates that, despite the fact that phthalates are used in many products, exposure is extremely low—significantly lower than any levels of concern set by regulatory agencies.

    In September 2012, the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) of the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing joined regulatory bodies in the United States and Europe that have found that current uses of DINP in consumer products are not expected to pose a risk to human health.
    In 2013, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) reaffirmed the safety of DINP and DIDP for use in all current applications.
    The U.S. National Toxicology Program’s Center for the Evaluation of Risks to Human Reproduction concluded that there was “minimal concern” regarding risk of developmental or reproductive effects from current exposure levels to DINP, and there was “minimal concern” regarding risk of developmental effects and “negligible concern” regarding risk of reproductive effects from current exposure levels to DIDP.

        The day after we leave the campaign to rejoin the EU will begin. The loon who shouts out about Brexit will just change a word or two ,
        I’d like to read someone objective ( pro brexit ) who could game out the effect of separate economic pathways between the ReichEU and Blighty – and the effect s.

        A Tory ex minister ( forgotten his name ) on Toady this morning mentioned how much goods from Eire transit through the `UK and onwards – and what a negative effect it will have on their economy .
        The current Eire PM will pay the price but it will be high if Eire is adversely affected – unless they see sense and pull out of the EU – which as I write – suggests that we will get the blame for any thing bad that happens .

        I just hope there is not a sniff in the air of extending A50 again with bojo saying ‘because we are near an agreement ‘- which will really mean take to the streets as we are sold out again ( the state monitors of this site can note that in their ‘tension report ‘) .

    America first attempted to buy Greenland in 1867. President Franklin Roosevelt made Greenland an American protectorate in 1941, and in 1946, President Trump-erm-Truman offered a hundred million dollars to buy Greenland. Then on the 23rd February 1982, in the Greenlandic European Communities membership referendum, 53% voted to leave. So less than three years later on the 1st February 1985, Greenland left the EU.

    If Britain leaves without a deal then the EU will collapse because it wont get its £39 Billion and also lose its massive trade surplus with Britain. Germanys economy with collapse bringing down the bankrupt banks in Italy. Everything in the EU will get more expensive as they put up tariff walls, and the Euro then collapses. Britain wont have to obey laws meant to make imports more expensive than French food. So Britain can trade with friendlier nations by removing tariffs and having real free trade deals with faster growing countries elsewhere in the world.

    A bureaucracy to legislate and regulate trade and build walls to keep out external trade but not free movement of people, and call that “free trade” and democratic is loony. With Germany having only six broken down U-Boats, and the Royal Navy with HMS Queen Elizabeth. We could easily win any trade war. The RAF last bombed Berlin on the 21st April 1945, and the British Army last took Brussels on the 4th September 1944.

    “ Ditch cars to meet climate change targets, say MPs

    There’s a stark warning from MPs over climate change: people will have to get out of their cars if the UK is to meet targets on emissions from transport. “Widespread personal vehicle ownership does not appear to be compatible with significant decarbonisation,” according to the Science and Technology Select Committee, which argues that replacing existing cars with cleaner versions will prove insufficient. It wants improvements to public transport, alongside incentives to share cars, walk or cycle. The AA takes issue, suggesting the MPs underestimate the power of new technology. Ministers say the UK is going “further and faster” to tackle climate change than any other major economy.”

    Linked piece: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-49425402?

    It’s a Harrabin, so have a pinch of salt ready.

    Whilst grammatically correct, I have noticed the bbc does like collective terms that suggest a totality out of a fraction. It is ‘some MPs’ in a committee. Probably with noted bicycle rider Lammy involved.

    No mention of how such a move would impact the car industry, or indeed economy, Brexit or not.

        GW above, et al.
        There was a very good article by Tom Welsh in the Telegraph last week suggesting UK public transport use may have peaked. He goes on to say…..’It would be many transport policymakers’ worst nightmare, a blow to their ideological dream of a car-free future where the hyper-individualism of the motor vehicle is replaced with the collectivist misery of mass transit. They clothe car hatred in green arguments, but the fact that many of them are opposed to electric vehicles shows their true intentions’.

        If you accept this basic premise, then a lot of transport policy is neatly explained.

        Not,

        “Our would be leaders need to be straight about Green policies at election time”

        Agree.

        Bet the green lady in parliament shudders at the thought of the following green Party manifesto leaking out:

        As I understand it the greens are more interested in the following which was on their manifesto this year if its been changed I doubt it.

        1) religious instruction in schools will banned.

        2)church schools will be stripped of taxpayers money.

        3)trade & cultivation of cannabis will be de-crimalised.

        4) assisted dying will be legalised.

        5)monarchy abolished.

        6) the military eventually abolished.

        7) shooting banned.
        etc etc.

        The above is what the greens want in place if they gain some kind of bit-power in the next GE.

      GW,
      “Ministers say the UK is going “further and faster” to tackle climate change than any other major economy.” That’s what you get when the state purse is left open on the table to anyone who wishes to steal money.

        “tackling” something that has progressed over Billennia, regardless of what, or who inhabits the planet should be interesting to watch.

        The plan must be to systematically remove all life, starting with humanity, and return the planet to its infant state of being a lump of barren rock. Perhaps they’d be happy then…

      “Decarbonisation” – made up word with no meaning.

      Emissions are not a problem, nor is CO2 – in fact we could do with 100% more than we have already, ideally.

      The truth is, there is NO climate emergency, disaster, or problem, or anything else of significant concern. It’s all made up to foster an agenda of scaring the populace into compliance. It has always been thus, and it used to work – but thanks largely to the internet, it doesn’t work any more.

      In the end, they’ll become tired of pleading, shaming, bribing and cajoling, and begin enforcing. That’s the time to be worried.

      Toady watch

      Humph chats to a couple of frog MPs who sound eager for UK to leave their corrupt little FrancoGerman club badged as the EU.

      I think The shaky German did we brexiters a big favour yesterday by talking about a 30day renegotiation period to sort out the backstop taking us to mid September .

      The renegotiation will fail because no one want to build a control at the EIre NI border . So by the time the negotiations fail it will be too late to avoid our exit .

      Our French Government enemies were sounding like they want revenge on UK one way or another .

      At least we can have a legal “ buybritish ‘ campaign soon without breaching EU law.- and start seizing illegal French fishing boats .

    Further to my post yesterday about the fact that lately on BBC TV
    news when the general public are interviewed about topics. be it
    the weather on Bournemouth beach, The train service outside
    Kings Cross, knife crime, Brexit, housing in containers etc.The first person
    interviewed is nearly always a lady dressed in a burka.
    I just wondered is it possible that the BBC has employed a lady
    with a certain dress code to do their agenda virtue signalling in
    answering topical questions?

      If that creature is the head of C4 news one might know where their consistently hostile attitude to anything to which they do not agree .

      Listening to her on Toady the arrogance just poured out of the radio .

      There is a list of those who have given the Mctaggart speech and this lady claimed that one of the men who had previously given the speech deserved a ‘ come uppance ‘ for alleged sexual stuff he had done .

      The list includes John Humphreys . And a lot more chaps . I’d be a bit miffed if I was on the list , innocent , but now tainted by her allegation .

      I expect that if you look at her CV it will be –

      BBC – C4 – BBC – C4 but with some lefty commercial stuff like the dire Sky .

    I sense a Climate Change Emergency coming from the BBC next week as the weatherman last night informed me that if as expected, the temps reach 30 degrees on Monday, it will indeed be the hottest late August Bank Holiday on record !!!

    Now , we know how the BBC love a “hottest ever” and will inevitably link it to their pet love Climate Change, but will they mention just how shite and COOL the weather has been for the past few weeks , you know, just for balance ??? Will they eckers like !!

    I think we have had 3 spells of Hot weather this summer, and ALL of them will have coincided with high pressure sitting out to the East and low pressure to the West, therefore dragging up unusual winds direct from the South, (africa in summer) causing the heat. Absolutely, the square root of jack, to do with Climate Change.

    Get your tin hats on next week, the BBC Climate Change Lecture department are going to be in overdrive.

      I remember them doing a similar session on Jeremy Vine, in the studio was some batty female ‘celebrity’ and ‘down the line’ a media-naive ‘old white man’ with thirty years experience of vaccination.

      The female, whose craft is being presentable, got every opportunity to interupt, probably being able to silence Vine just by tilting her head, while the poor ‘expert’ had to be invited to join in with his nervous stutter.

      It’s like a modern-day gladiator contest, in the red corner a six-foot gladiator with armour, sword and net, in the blue corner a starving slave with a loin cloth. One can always tell which one the Empress has her money on!

      Grimes “I am with the suitmakers, who made the Emperor’s new suit, there is no way this small boy should be allowed onto the BBC to give his opinion”

      … You see the whole idea of shouting “false balance” is a logical fallacy
      The little guys opinion is not equivalent to the experts ..it can be BETTER
      and the little guy pays the taxes.
      Grimes is right that the little guy should vaccinate his kids
      but Grimes technique is ounterproductive.

      I have met Grimes and I am appalled that he is working at Oxford
      cos he working with the Science Skeptics yet doesn’t actually understand how Science Skepticism works
      He did a theory about Conspiracy Theories, yet it was junk cos he made a basic maths mistake.

    Macron gives Boris a smack in the mouth prior to their meeting later today. Says the BBC.

    ‘Boris Johnson is to meet Emmanuel Macron later, hours after the French president insisted reopening negotiations is “not an option”.

    Macron is also concerned on behalf of the British people who do not want vassalage under the US with Trump’s deal.
    Looks to me that Boris will only be able to negotiate some kind of joint statement to present some kind of assurance that May’s deal has been revised.

    Come on Nigel, get ready for the election and no deals with the Brexit Party and the Tories.

      These contraptions don’t seem to be hugely different to the old pre-fabs erected during the war. They were built as emergency accommodation for our own bombed out folk.
      Now that we’re looking after every Tom, Dick, Abdul…and his eighteen wives we’re bound to have housing shortages so we’ve adopted this method.
      Lots of people loved the old pre-fabs. They were grateful for what they could get. An old school mate of mine lived in one and I always thought they were cosy and interesting.
      Of course if you’ve washed up on our shores possessing only a begging bowl and a chip on your shoulder then you’re more likely to complain.
      Meanwhile we have old soldiers living on the streets…

    NYT Executive Editor last week in an interesting leak revealing bias and tailored reporting to their readership.

    Dean Baquet on Trump / Russia: “Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, ‘Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it.’ And Donald Trump got a little emboldened politically, I think. Because, you know, for obvious reasons. And I think that the story changed.”

    On the readership of the NYT: “They sometimes want us to pretend that he was not elected president, but he was elected president […] and our job is to figure out why, and how, and to hold the administration to account. If you’re independent, that’s what you do.”

    No evidence of collusion found in Mueller report = “The story changed.” (Some people did something??)

    I note that when the goodies pursue an agenda rather than abide by neutral accurate reporting, this is referred to honourably as ‘holding power to account’.

    When the baddies pursue an agenda rather than abide by neutral accurate reporting, this is referred to scoffingly as ‘speaking to your base’ or ‘weaponising facts’.

    Did my ears deceive me this morning while listening to the news on BBC Radio 5 Live when it said:

    Merkel has given Boris 30 days to come up with a solution.

    He’s been “given”

    What the!?

    Looks like we’ve been duped again boys and girls.

    Expect Boris to use the same jet that May used for his repeat return flights to Strasburg over the next 30 days.

    Merkel hasn’t changed, the UK government hasn’t changed, the 17 and one half million leave voters hasn’t changed – more than likely its near to 18 million now we know how much the UK has been betrayed by perhaps 90% of MPs.

    Orders “given” to come up with a solution in 30 days were even after 3 years they didn’t have a clue – nothings changed.
