Weekend Open Thread 31 August 2019

The Biased Bubble returns from its unearned holidays to pour out rabid anti brexit anti democratic propaganda on an electorate bored to tears with their delaying tactics and lies – so we will be busy reporting it .

And as time passes How will the BBC deal with the 80th anniversary of the start of World War 2 be dealt with ? Plenty of opportunity for even more pro EU bias .

Project Fear summary
Apart from the Queen authorising the closure of the Remainer Parliament a bit early ~ Project Fear has chugged on mainly with repeats of medicine shortages .
Thursday was ‘flu vaccine shortage ‘ and the Ghost of Gina Miller using Soros cash for another go at using the courts to undermine the vote of 17.4 million people who she thinks are thick .
Wednesday was ‘getting the queen involved in brexit ‘it’s a coup – it’s the end of democracy hysterics .
Other than that just the usual biased BBC singing the Remainers song as loud as it can .

        I’m sure a senior armchair general like Hastings will put something in to try and sell his book – living of the heroism of young men willing to put their neck on the line every time .

        I suppose blowing up dams will be declared an ‘ eco crime ‘ and a BBC led campaign to remove honours .

          The BBC state in their online news that the number killed by the German bombing of Warsaw in 1940 was the same for the allied bombing of Dresden in 1945 i.e 25,000. (The BBC blame the RAF for Dresden and conveniently forget that the Americans bombed Dresden during the following day).

          BBC Online News:

          “Poland still counts losses from WW2 invasion”

          “It is not widely known but Polish casualties during the bombing of Warsaw by the Luftwaffe in 1939 were about the same as those suffered by the Germans in the British bombing of Dresden in 1945, when up to 25,000 died.”

          https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-49523932

          Note how the BBC prefer ‘Luftwaffe’ to ‘German’ air force.

            And far more died in the bombing of Tokyo, one month later, even though a fire-storm did not develop in this case.

            Message: waging aggressive war against other countries (and that includes bombing towns before war has even started) gets your people killed, so don’t do it. And don’t blame everybody else when you end up reaping what you have sown.

              A very true sentiment . Smithsonian channel has been show ‘the Pacific war in colour ‘ and the losses of civilians through carpet bombing and the Bombsx2 stopped estimated 80% losses if japan had to be invaded as well as the Jap plan to murder all allied POWs that they hadn’t murdered already .

              The BBC attitude to history seems to be – bury it on BBC4 with weird politicised presenters who must spout stuff about ‘multiculturalism “ and “good refugees “.

                Because the atomic bomb development was classified, the invasion of Japan had been planned out to insanely intricate detail.

                The most insane part is that they’d already logistically organised years worth of food/water/munition shipments in advance and planned for the 200k+ deaths, not to mention the medals to award to those showing gallantry. To this day, when the US dispenses purple hearts, they’re still handing out medals manufactured nearly 80 years ago. That was how much time and effort lives it was expected to cost.

                But obviously 50k people dying in an atomic bomb was far worse, because its simple enough for the BBC to explain to kids (“death is bad”). Where by “kids” I mean the idiots who rely on them as their sole source of information.

                  Strange you mention the logistics but there have been a few programmes recently about the economics and industrial side of WW2.
                  It showed that so called ‘leaders ‘ can ignore or deny the obvious – such as the industrial production of Germany or japan against the combined effort of the allies – particularly America – which was weak at the beginning of the war but running the planet at the end .

                  Such issues only interest those interested and most people seem to be more interested on what Mr and Mrs Beckham are doing – but that’s life .

                  Spot on Calvin, the progressive BBC has relegated logic to below “emotion” a case in point is the “Migration Crisis” where it is obvious that if you stop encouraging people to cross dangerous waters in unsuitable craft then there will be less deaths – but no the media has encouraged them crossing, painting every economic migrant as a “refugee”, and making it virtually impossible for governments to send these chancers back, thus encouraging more illegal migration and more deaths.

      Along with current hypocritical ‘patricians’ like Major and Heseltine, Hastings is becoming adept at re-writing history to suit a personal agenda.

The families enjoying end of summer hols and I even was serenaded by Elvis, Ricky Nelson and Bobby Darin as i walked (you always get 60s music there). Even the punch and Judy at the end of the pier was playing to crowds of children and their parents. I thought of the sweaty hate merchants out on the streets following Corbin and his evil followers in the hoc. This country will really have to wake up when we have sorted Brexit as we cannot have this motley bunch dictating how we live.

      Meanwhile, down at my local Tesco store this afternoon Mrs Wright and my- cowardly- self witnessed a family of enrichers,who were well dressed and looked well fed, just helping themselves to items of food from the large box of goods donated by customers for distribution to the homeless.
      Mrs Wright was gobsmacked and started looking around for an assistant who might stop the theft but the only one in view was wearing one of those now familiar black headscarves plus a scowl.
      As we had no desire to be decapitated we kept our gobs zipped.
      I’m certain this incident will have been captured on the in house CCTV but of course it would be racist for Tesco to take any kind of action so they will also keep their gobs zipped.

    A blind man in a snowstorm could have picked up days ago that the bbc was actually using its ‘news’ and other programmes to incite and co-ordinate the ‘protests’, now in full swing.
    It created channels of communication between anti-government elements, constantly egged them on fired them up, in addition to publicising their various activities. They stopped just short of actually issuing explicit instructions. Obviously a well-prepared campaign, quite cleverly executed.

    I think the Remainers planned these protests for a prorogation of Parliament to cover 31st October, not four days in September. A brilliant plan by the Boris team that is provoking a hysterical response by the pro-EU morons. The Remainers don’t want a General Election, but they seem to have been inflicted by a hysterical demand for the democracy that they oppose.
    John McDonnell said: “If Boris Johnson wants a mandate, then he should call a general election and put it to the people.”

    A book on groupthink says every South Sea Bubble ends in a crash. Dominic Cummings seems to be exploiting the Groupthinks inability to think for themselves. Therefore making Jeremy Corbyn unable to resist voting for a General Election due to his hysterical supporters demanding democracy, the very thing that would destroy their dreams. A General Election that pits Boris against the mad pro-establishment Groupthink, fighting for politicians who support the European Union and lied to the electorate. Pitted against those patriotic politicians who support Britain and the democratic majority of the people.

    A General Election would mean that Parliament would be dissolved from 10th September to 4th November, creating a situation were it would be very silly if Boris did not use this to make a clean break Brexit with or without a deal. This could cause the Groupthink to go insane by both denying that it wants to stop a General Election while actively doing so in the courts. “We are trying to save Parliament and Democracy from the Plebs and Populism” the Remainers would say.

          That is substantially correct although the numbers need adjusting (the so-called Indian National Army or INA had about 50,000 recuits, whereas the regular Indian (British) Army peaked at about 2.5 million, all of them volunteers. Many of the INA were turncoats and traitors, some acted out of conviction, the majority were POWs captured in Singaport and Burma who reckoned that fighting for the Japanese and a ‘Free India’ was better than incarceration. The INA were led by Subash Chandra Bose – regarded as a hero in India to this day. The Austrian corporal had a favourable view about British India, considering it to be a textbook example of benevolent colonialism, although Bose’s sponsors (Japan) had a very different view. Here’s a picture of Bose meeting Herr Hitler in Berlin, having got there courtesy of a Japanese submarine.

      After reading the headlines this morning I’ve come to the shocking conclusion that Bercow and a few rebels can and probably succeed in stoping Brexit from going through?!

      So after 3 years in the end one man (speaker) can and proabaly will stop Brexit completely.

      Why did we bother if in the end some person will have the final say if we should leave on Oct 31 or not leave. Meaning once the 31 oct is pushed back again I can never see us leaving as all the rebels need to do is to do the same things all over again.

        taffman, theleftwilleatitself

        After a mighty battle with the remainers Boris might claim as a victory a slightly tweaked version of Treezer’s deal. Then after a few years we can slide back into more or less business as usual. Lots of immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa, and a contribution to the EU army. So far Trump has backed Boris against the EU, he may get tired and give up.

          But since Mr Johnson wants to give amnesty to millions of illegals in our country I doubt that will happen. Only UKIP have committed to revoke our commitment to it, as far as I know.

          So, the best we can hope for is that Prime Minister Johnson gets us completely out of the EU, on WTO terms, paying them nothing and then calls a General Election, which results in a government that is committed to deporting all the illegals and the violent legals and those with a criminal record.

    Here we go again. A poor canal-boat family in Wiltshire face eviction by the nasty Canal & River Trust for not moving enough along the canal. The family in question lives near Bradford on Avon.

    Now I happen to know a fair bit about the canals and the trust and have met many of these boat people. There are only two types; lovely free-spirited souls who have a sense of adventure or some of the most belligerent, obnoxious weirdos you could ever meet. Bradford on Avon area has a reputation for having the latter.

    CRT offers several licence types but essentially there is a ‘moored up’ licence and a much cheaper ‘continuous cruising’ licence. What often happens is that the second set of people buy the cc licence (or don’t buy one at all) and then shake a fist at the organisation for threatening to remove them from the waterways after failing to adhere to the rules of the licence.

    Beggars belief doesn’t it? Yet, naturally the bbbc takes the side of the poor ‘down-trodden’ boat owner. I can assure you, however, that many licence-abiding boat owners applaud this eviction action which is only implemented after many months, even years, of failed communication.

    Exactly! The phrase used by the owner smacks of a champagne socialist.

    “This is gentrifying the canal and destroying our community.”

    (Matthew Symonds from the CRT said it had 34,200 boats on the waterways, and last year removed 17 houseboats because of licence issues).

    BBC Europe reporter Gavin Lee ‘…boards a small boat to see some of the dangers faced by migrants’

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-49539293

    So as per usual a BBC-trained journo seems keen to report on this important issue from the point of view of the migrant. Don’t expect hard facts and figures, it’s going to be all about what the BBC terms – the human story. There are many problems with his short film report but let’s concentrate on a few of the BBC-style issues.

    Right at the start of our Gavin’s commentary he appears on his small boat dramatically life-jacketed (‘elf n safety innit) he points to some big ships and we get this gem: “You can see why this is called one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world”

    Gavin, why so mealy-mouthed? Why the typically infantile BBC multiple provisos in your scramble to clutch for the superlative? Do your bloody research and tell us – is this THE busiest or NOT? And if not what’s wrong with just saying it’s blinkin’ busy?

    Anyway, Gavin tells us this problem is getting worse (not the busy shipping lane, the migrant thing) and crossing the channel in small boats is dangerous. Tell us something we don’t know!

    Over to our French skipper (not life-jacketed, mind you – well, as the Normandy farmer famously once said “EU regulations, zey are for the English, hein?”) he says it’s all about the wind, the waves, the currents & that water is nippy. I hope you’re taking notes.

    We then have a camera shot of Gavin in the back of the boat (which he’s previously told us not at all like the boats the migrants use) trying subtly to throw himself from side to side like Bill Shatner on the bridge of the starship Enterprise tv set reacting to a supposed full-blown Klingon attack.

    It goes on. But Gavin does give a little snippet of interesting info: “One of the ways we are told that migrants know they’ve made it into British territorial waters is using mobile phones. If the time changes an hour, they can then call the British coastguard and they won’t be sent back to France”

    I think our Gav has kinda blown the gaff. Cross the timeline and our rescue services can be used as an Uber service – note the migrants appear to have little or no doubt they are home and dry once they cross this finish line. They do not seem to fear British authorities will ever send them back.

    Finally we are told migrants told our Gav that it costs them £3,000 to be smuggled across the Channel. No way is the BBC going to tell us how much it might be costing per migrant for our authorities to process them and god forbid any follow up about what happens next. Catch and release, I’m guessing.

    Most days the BBC Business live blog thingy has a headline something like; ‘Pound tumbles’, ‘Pound plummet’s’ or similar. All doom and gloom you’d think.

    Something that seems to be missed by the BBC is that according to

    https://tradingeconomics.com/united-kingdom/exports

    The two highest UK export months since 1955 occurred in March and June 2019. Between May and June exports increased by 4.5%, ‘the most since October 2016’.

    ‘Among major trading partners, goods exports to non-EU countries jumped 17.8 percent, mostly to China (110.2%), Hong Kong (47.9%), the UAE (83.4%), India (21.3%), Japan (1.3%) and South Korea (22.2%). Conversely, declines were registered in shipments to the US (-1.5%), Switzerland (-1.6%), Singapore (-11.1%) and Turkey (-16.7%). Exports to the EU fell 3.3 percent, in particular to the Netherlands (-17.8%) and Belgium (-2.8%), but rose to Germany (0.7%), France (0.5%), Ireland (5.4%), Italy (2.2%) and Spain (6.7%)’

    Now I realize that % change can be distorted by a low starting base etc. The 10 year and ‘Max’ charts are worth a look.

    All doom and gloom isn’t it?

    Basically BIG BROTHER wants us to know that it was the older

    The second piece of Machiavellian intrigue is to get journalists
    into the studio who work for Conservative leaning newspapers
    which gives the impression that they support Brexit, but they
    don’t.
    The presenters and reporters to a woman ( it or very occasionally

    cannot hide their 100% support for remain ,which can be heard
    in their sarcastic intonation as soon as they open their mouths.

    With their now Machiavellian approach the BBC is doing everything it possibly can to defeat Brexit.

    These days I’m far from ‘well travelled’ preferring to avoid any long distance travel and in particular, airports having spent a good deal of my life seeming to live on 747’s.
    Other contributors here will recall the main theme running through Douglas Murray’s book, ‘The Strange Death of Europe’, which was that Europeans are somehow overwhelmed with sorrow sorry for what the white colonials have inflicted on other parts of the World over the centuries. I did not agree with that when reading his book and I still refuse to accept that proposition. However, this reoccurring theme has arisen again in this Gatestone offering –
    https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/14767/europe-dreams-immigration
    Put simply, the author of this article asserts that European’s are self-flagellating over the past and that somehow accounts for the acceptance of mass migration by savages from the Third World.
    I know many of my fellow contributors here have (and indeed, still) travel extensively so, my question to them, particularly, is there something I’m missing which more travel would contradict? Personally, I don’t give a *hi* for third World savages and feel no burden, much preferring the situation where they were all shipped out to where they came from. £39 Billion would nicely cover the cost I guess.

      “Put simply, the author of this article asserts that European’s are self-flagellating over the past”

      My opinion, for what it’s worth:

      Yes they are, but to a very limited extent. I think the need for “respectability” is a bigger motivation and in 2019, “respectability” is defined by the BBC, the MSM in general and, consequently, the middle classes. “Respectability” is extremely important to the middle classes because, as they see it, it is what defines them. Material wealth no longer works because there are so many relatively wealthy people who they perceive as working class. Attending church no longer works because hardly anyone does it.

      Then there is pressure from teenagers who know virtually nothing, have no responsibilities and can see no further than their smartphone screens. When I was a teenager, proper adults took my opinions with a pinch of salt because they were immature and uninformed. Now we live in an age when fathers seem to feel the need to dress like toddlers and watch the sort of movies that they should have grown out of years ago.

      And lastly, of course, there is education, or what passes for it. When people know virtually nothing about their own culture except the bad bits, what objection can they possibly have to the importation of a few 10th rate ones? What’s wrong with fawning over some undemanding, primitive pop song that teenagers and the BBC have declared cool and progressive?

      They’d better sharpen up pretty quickly though because, although Rotherham might seem a long way off, it is coming to a town near you.

      I’m not going to say what I think needs to be done because I fear it could get me into trouble.

          “…are somehow overwhelmed with sorrow sorry for what the white colonials have inflicted on other parts of the World…”

          I think overwhelmed with guilt and self-recrimination (forces that have been inflicted on them) more than sorrow. Also the powerful need to be nice which goes hand in hand with a reluctance to look at some dark and ugly stuff within. Helen’s point about the need for respectability is spot on.

          Murray makes the point that the east European states have conflict and destruction more recently in their national histories (and also happen not to favour open immigration policies). We have had a long time of living nicely, and after a while the desire to be nice to other people at all times is very seductive.

          That seems likely to change only if / when living nicely is truly threatened.
