      Smoogie – lets hope it does help the brexit cause .
      The problem is whether any news agency explains what is going on without tainting the explanation .

      I know we won’t get a fair narrative from the BBC . But it is needed .

        The sad thing is these days is that when someone uses the BBC as evidence for something I will know for a fact that it would be a biased report. It has just gotten to that stage now where the BBC just cannot be trusted to provide balance and they make no attempt to hide their bias

            Guido good for news but censorship is heavy and clumsy. You now have to show you are trustworthy otherwise monitored and usually blocked. I have written banal comments, on topic, but weak, and I am building up trust.

          Smoogie My rough rule of thumb is if the BBC is in favour of somthing I now automatically oppose it – seems to be about right.

          BBC foaming at the mouth on this, so its gotta be the right thing.

            Haha…I said the exact same thing today Oaknash. In fact, I go one further. If a sentence in a report starts ‘Jeremy Corbyn….or SNP leaders…or Shadow….etc. etc.’ I don’t read it anymore, which means as far as the BBBC is concerned, that’s a lot of skim reading!

              Absolutely right!

              It’s so easy to call out the leftie, sour bias of the bbc within a few seconds; the tone of the sneer, the non-content, the failure of biased opinion – it’s all in the open now, and they’re squirming like worms in a barrel, dribbling inanities, thinking they’re getting a non-message across to the ‘gullibles’!

              I don’t know anybody who thinks they’re any good these days, the stupidity of some of the comments by their ‘autocue-readers’ beggars belief, so I’ll try and stay awake for the BS on R5Dead tonight, and report back in the morning.

              If I don’t, I’m either dead or hungry and can’t be a*sed, much as I lways look forward to seeing you Guys and Gals here!

                  Ha ha ha, Fedders!

                  Just to say that Ms Courtney didn’t surprise me with her ‘interview’ with a pro-Brexit MEP, and an ‘academic’ from Bristol Tech.

                  The MEP gave a simple statement explaining the situation in a few seconds. The ‘academic’ spent quite a long, long time, saying things which were of course anti-Brexit, and espousing her ‘opinions’ with monotonous repetition.

                  But dear Courtney immediately gabbled in and agreed to it all, reluctantly getting back to the MEP for just a few seconds more.

                  Pretty poor autocue-reading, and very boring listening to the ‘academic’, so much so that I nearly got back to sleep…

                    Actually for the “experienced” auto-reader, I wouldn’t mind betting that their instructions come from the editor who speaks (swears) in their ear.

                    They give it away when suddenly, they seem to pause mid-sentence as if she’s/he is day dreaming.

              Same with that guy who presents the lastest movies on the BBC News TV. The one with the funny looking quiff and grey streak in his hair. IF he says its great it usually isn’t. His taste must trump (no pun) every other movie lovers taste.

    Good move by Boris. It may directly deliver Brexit or it may not. But it sends a message to the electorate and the EU that Boris and his government are very serious and committed to a Brexit worthy of the name. It Also sends a message to Nigel that Boris is willing to risk all in the cause of Brexit and so makes it more likely that TBP will be willing to join a Brexit electoral pact.Indeed if Nigel won’t it brings into question exactly what he does want. If so then the Brexit alliance is almost certain to win the forthcoming GE and delivering Brexit will be comparatively straightforward.
    We will be able to tell how good the move is by how much the BBC, Times, Sky news etc squeal. It should make good viewing. Burco who only last week was boasting that he would do everything in his power to stop Brexit , and this from someone who is supposed to be impartial, is now complaining about a PM who is doing everything in his power to deliver it following the choice that the people made three years ago. Hypocrite just like most other Remainers.

    I listened to Twato from 1300 through to about 1340 when the idiot Jo Swinson was interviewed. All too much by then. Off. Within that 40 minutes or so, any voice of a pro Brexiteer was one: John Redwood who could have been, for me, the only one who pointed out that the ‘Democracy’ the Remoaners want to apply is their own vision of Democracy aka, ‘Power’ which is certainly not the voters vision. Regrettably he didn’t. Professor Bogdenor was completly neutral to the extent that the listener could not determine his preference. All the rest hostile to Brexit. The thing that beats me, is that the Remoaners to a man, woman or indeed anything between, believe that they have no duty to the voters whatever. Power rests with them. Totally, some would say, in fact their attitude is, *uc* the voters. I do hope that come next General Election it is a bloodbath of those ignoring the voters.
    One concern is that if, as was stated by a QC interviewed, the Remoaners are on their merry way to a Judicial Review of the Boris decision, and that is in any measure successful, it will by virtue of the judiciary wishing to become involved in politics:
    a. demonstrate conclusively that the judiciary cannot be trusted;
    Which will result in,
    b. the Separation of Powers [ https://lawaspect.com/separation-powers-uk/ ] being defenestrated.
    And that downward spiral will herald the total collapse of whatever is left of democracy.
    Extraordinarily dangerous times.

        The Government gave the public a vote to leave or remain in the EU.
        The public voted to leave.
        Parliament then voted by huge majority to ratify that vote.
        During the Election in 2017 both Parties stood on a ‘Leave’ ticket.
        Parliament has voted against May’s Treaty 3 times.
        Therefore the default position is we leave without a deal as NO Party has come up with an alternative.

        So how is Boris being undemocratic ?

        Prorogation is one of a handful of powers of the monarch that is outside of the judicial process and therefore cannot be successfully challenged in that way. Seeing as most judicial posts are political appointees, I still expect a ‘verdict’ that attempts to do so.

      The Remoaners are careerists not representatives. They lie to those who elected them because it was best for their career in politics. In fact I cannot think why any careerist could possible support Brexit, because Brexit is about removing an unnecessary and expensive (£39 Billion and that bus) level of governance. Its also why you haven’t heard anything positive about the EU from Remoaners. They don’t want you to know what they think is positive about the EU (see above), and lie about what they fear (see above)

    G- radio4 news: I thought I heard this:
    a) some news
    b) mainly agenda/narrative
    c) THE PUBLIC CO-ORDINATION OF ANTI-GOVERNMENT FORCES IN BROAD DAYLIGHT, QUITE OPENLY!
    REDWOOD WAS THE ALIBI THAT A VARIETY OF VOICES WERE BEING HEARD, DISPLAYING IMPARTIALITY. A FRACTION OF BOGDANOR, DITTO. THE REST WAS A GET TOGETHER OF THE REVOLUTIONARY LEFT! ON PUBLIC RADIO, PAID FOR BY THE TAXPAYER!
    My, my they’re getting bold.
    By the time Lee (Leigh?) came on, the incitement was explicit. I switched off when I heard Chakrabati as next speaker. I’d heard enough to know incitement to overthrow the government was afoot, beeb as their public voice.
    The parliamentarians, who drone on endlessly about their ‘sovereignty’ forget THAT THAT THEIR SOVEREIGNTY DERIVES FROM THE SOVEREIGNTY OF THE PEOPLE, who were consulted, and have spoken. Not because they are such genius.
    The outrage the endless stream of anti-Boris voices that were paraded, expressed, is misplaced. The outrage should be over the contempt the MPs show for the people. THE PUBLIC BROADCASTER IS BRAZENLY GATHERING AND MARSHALLING THE FORCES OF REVOLT, DISGUISING IT AS NEWS!

      He has not constitutional right to intervene and should have remained to appear ‘ neutral . His conduct makes the issue of constitutional crush’s more real . He has to go soon .

    I see sky news have a novel way of showing their impartiality.

    They have two people being interviewed.
    One pro and one against Brexit.
    However, they are two remainers but the one sky news have to represent the Brexit point of view is a remainer who ‘accepts’ the result of the referendum (and he is being talked over and interrupted by the other remainer and the interviewer)

    It’s like counting Hammond as a leaver because he voted for may’s abomination of a total surrender WA.

    They must be running out of questions for remainers as they are having remainer after remainer on. I suppose by never interrupting them and leaving them to go on and on they are having an easy time of it, storing up all their interruptions and bile for the occasional leaver that manages to get on.

    It then brings on a ‘Conservative’, Lord Heseltine, to give another point of view. He, like Bercow, speaks of a ‘constitutional outrage’ by Boris. What a surprise!
    Then, on come Labour. Their speaker, Andy McDonald, gets quite carried away with his verbosity.
    Then, on comes Phillip Hammond. Wow! Any other traitors left?
    Carolyn Quinn: leading and coordinating the public voice of the sedition.

    Then she brings in Gus O Donnel to badmouth Boris. ‘Very dodgy’, he says. She pretends to be critical, in order to egg him on. Transparent? You betcha. Very Carolyn; she practices on Sunday nights at ten.

    The BBC has just rolled out its Royal Correspondent to sombrely tell us, without any factual evidence or supporting quotes, that the Queen will be feeling “resentful” and “deeply concerned” at being asked to approve a brief suspension of Parliament.
    No attempt to explain that there is Royal precedent for this, that it is a normal part of Parliamentary democracy, or that it enables Her Majesty’s Government to present the first Queen’s Speech for three years outlining important new legislation.
    It is an utter disgrace for the BBC to deliberately misrepresent the Queen’s role and to pretend that it knows what she thinks.
    Now they’ve got some “constitutional” expert on telling us that the suspension is “unconstitutional” and that the Conservative party is falling apart – guess she’s a remoaner, but we’re not told that..
    Two more months of this utter garbage fake news to come, and then we get out country back.

    Never mind, some more academics are coming on to badmouth Boris. However, they do realise, it turns out, there is such a thing as a Direct democracy, as well as a Representative democracy. That’s progress. But they think Boris will have the Judiciary against him. No surprise there.

    A democratic majority of people want a real Brexit, but the BBC has a list of censored politicians and journalists, so we don’t get that impression from the BBC. The BBC says “Fake News” is “added on”. But the BBC is the worlds biggest “Fake News” organisation using “subtracted off”. The BBC’s narratives need to censor the existence of a growing list of politicians, journalists and scientists. At the BBC, Brexit supporters do not exist, Christians do not exist, intelligent people do not exist. Man made Climate Change is the biggest “Fake News” story in history, constructed by the BBC’s best scientific experts, who don’t actually have any scientific qualifications. The BBC thinks that the Labour party was set up to represent posh white people and foreigners while the Tory party was set up to represent the uneducated common folk. To construct the above “Fake News” the BBC’s employees need this list of censored Politicians, Journalists and Scientists. http://climatlas.com/tropical/media_cloud_list.txt

    So many remainers being interviewed on our ‘impartial’ news channels and they keep on coming out with their rubbish.

    Common today is the never challenged statement they keep on repeating “nobody voted for a no deal Brexit”

    Hello.

    Did I miss the part on the in / out referendum voting slip which said out but only with a deal.
    Was my voting slip a fake?
    It only had remain or leave on mine.
    I missed the option of leave with a deal acceptable to mp’s.

    This Parliament will go down as the worst ever, full of useless mp’s and moderated by a lefty remainer speaker.
    The 3 MPs here in Sunderland completely disregarding their electorate, all remainers working against us.
    They have decided we didn’t know what we voted for and, as they know better, will ignore us, the ignorant rabble they obviously think we are, to vote ‘the right way’

    This short video from We Got a Problem is wonderful to behold. On the hive rat Victoria Derbyshire show, Tom Holland from the Guido Fawkes website and unelected gobshite Margaret Beckett.

    Tom Holland does a good job in defending Boris Johnson and leaving the EU. Mrs Beckett completely loses her composure, insults Tom Holland and fumes gloriously about Prime Minister Johnson; she hasn’t yet realised she’s a nobody even if the racist far-left bbc collective think she’s worth listening to.

      John – I think Maggie Becket is still an MP – and not long ago she was after the Speakers ‘ job – no doubt to continue funding her tropical plants with taxpayers money .

      In such circumstances it’s almost a game seeing the same old mouthpieces coming out or running back from their holidays a couple of days early .

      Allistair Campbell must be due together with the foreign Miller woman on behalf of Soros as well as the troll previous PMs .

      Remainers have used every trick available – including the use of a criminal MP freshly released from prison wearing a tag to win a vote by her single vote . If they do that any legal method is fair on behalf of brexiters .

    Probably find Clive Lewis MP there, as the revolting populus follow his call to go onto the streets. Doesn’t know whether he’s coming or going, poor chap. Should he be in there or out? Maybe, like Ruth Davidson, it will all be too much for him, and he will quit.

    Peston on ITV says Boris is following the Trump formula. That would be good.
    A tiny voice still inhabits me, however.
    Peston says there is a conference with the EU in October. So, what if a ‘deal’ emerges? Very little time for parliament to debate it.
    The little voice says: Extension?
    After three years of May’s little shenanigans, nothing would surprise. There was nothing about a ‘deal’ in the referendum. And thus nothing about ‘no deal’. Do we believe/forgive our new PM, for even mentioning the concept of a deal? Or is it just for public consumption? Part of a negotiating strategy? If there is ‘negotiating’, is it merely to run down the clock? Or are we back to ‘achieving a deal’?
    There are a lot of mirrors here.
    After all Boris’ many, solid-sounding assurances, would we find more time being needed? Goalposts shifted AGAIN?
    It seems inconceivable.

      Except on page 8 of the Government’s own publication, urging a Remain vote:
      “Some argue that we could strike a good deal quickly with the EU because they want to keep access to our market.
      But the Government’s judgement is that it would be much harder than that – less than 8% of EU exports come to the UK while 44% of UK exports go to the EU.”

      In other words – a vote to Leave – after the inevitable Article 50 period, means leaving without a deal. Unless sabotaged by Remainers in Parliament, determined to cost the UK more money and damage our businesses and economy. Which they did.

    Grrrr! Dragged back early from ‘leave’ for a so-called (by the BBC) ‘constitutional crisis’. Nothing of the sort.

    Spotted one outright lie from the BBC both on web-site and on Radio 4: shares and £ down because the PM has asked the Queen for a prorogation of Parliament.

    Untrue.

    News of the move leaked out around 10am but it was really only firmed up after that time. At that stage, our Monarch had not given her assent. If you look at the three currency movements monitored on the BBC w/s here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business/market-data (you need to click on the Euro, Yen and US Dollar in turn to see the daily movement) you find that after the news broke the £ rose against those currencies.

    It is true that the FTSE-250 stayed red all day to the close but the FTSE-100 rose on the first news and then more than trebled its gain of nearly 8pts to finish 25pts up as you can see from the closing figures. Am not going to explain why the FTSE-250 is down (there are reasons other than Brexit) as it will take too long and am on hols.

    Anyway, the last time I commented on here on the 250 Index, I gave it the TMS and MotD Commentators’ ‘Kiss of Death’ !

    How’s this for a dodgy poll?

    Look at the question asked:

    The government have set a date for the new Queen’s speech in October, meaning that the present session of Parliament will be “prorogued” and Parliament will not meet between mid-September and mid-October, in the run up to Brexit. Do you think it is or is not acceptable for the government to stop Parliament from meeting during this period?

    The question quite clearly implies that prorogation is causing Parliament to be closed between mid September and mid October. In fact it was always going to be closed for that length of time, other than about 4 days.

    Had they said, “meaning that the closure of Parliament between mid September and mid October is extended by a few days” they’d have got a quite different answer.

    Always bear that in mind when reading poll results.

    The Labour leader said the prime minister needed to be “held to account by Parliament” and must not be allowed to shut it down.
    Jeremy Corbyn has written to the Queen to protest about the PM’s plan, saying it was “not acceptable” and “not on”.
    He asked what Boris Johnson was “so afraid of”, and added there would be a motion of confidence in the PM “at some point.

      I heard the same thing . The BBC News is saying that 1.1 million have signed the petition -. We have experience here of the BBC not reporting that petitions have been set up nor that they have passed the hundred thousand threshold to be forwarded to the commons to be ignored .

      Apparently this petition calls on brexit to be debated . I thought they’d been doing that firv3 years in order to stop the people’s vote being put into effect .

      When the petition gets to 14.4 million it might be worth something .

        So about one in ten people who voted remain easily managed to sign an online petition?

        I wonder how many ‘bots’ have been to task?

      No protests in Bournemouth yet but we have the airshow. Most Brits must have something better to do.

      Most protests that I have seen so far are online with the usual keyboard warriors working overtime

      Can’t see the riots lasting; its too much like hard work as they are so used to their masters in the EU thinking and doing for them.
