    So Boris cannot use “inflammatory” words like surrender and humbug.
    But someone on a stage carrying a Boris head and shouting **** Boris is just fine.

    Effigies of Leavers “hanged” in Manchester.
    Admittedly condemned by Andy Burnham.
    Remainiacs, when we call your leaders traitors, they actually are traitors.
    When you call our leaders traitors they are actually patriots, the imagined treason in your tiny heads is anti Marxism.
    Please continue, you are losing the argument.

      We have been told constantly for decades how women are just the same as men and must have the same outcomes; when we have 50/50 representation in every field utopia will have arrived.

      So Jess Phillips et alia have been playing up to the worst stereotypes of women at the most crucial time for our country: instead of getting on with the job they’ve talked for days about their feelings and how weak and overwhelmed they are. Tell them to stay at home if they can’t handle it and that would be the most vile thought crime imaginable, yet they are happy to milk victim status when it is convenient.

      If you want the money, power etc that historically has disproportionately lain in the hands of men then you must handle the hassle as well. Trump is the most powerful man in the world but boy does he have a hell of lot on his plate; I would much rather stay at home than be in his shoes.

      The truth that dare not speak its name is that most women would not want that level of extreme stress; it is much easier to marry a rich and powerful man instead and enjoy the fruits of his stress with minimal hassle for yourself. Feminists will never acknowledge this crucial hate fact, instead blaming any unequal outcomes on ‘sexism.’ But behind every great man lies a great woman and I am sure pillow talk over the centuries has been more powerful than women like to admit. I doubt many of the greatest achievements could have happened had great men not had the fantastic love and support that only a woman can provide.

      So which is it to be feminists? To waste four days talking about hurt feelings in a crisis is unacceptable; it’s most of what Marr spoke to Boris about when we have much bigger fish to fry. (We may even get fried ourselves.) We all know it’s a false narrative to distract from their betrayal but they must not be able to get away with it.

        As Harold Wilson once said, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!”

        Maybe that should be “back into the kitchen”, in the case of the perpetually offended Labour women MPs.

            Fed, agreed but the short notice neutralises the leakers. They would have been caught on the back foot. It would be risky cancelling Conference – the opposition would call it ‘weak’ or damaging to the ‘poor’ old north ie. fairly well-to-do central Manchester.

            On the plus side: the Tories get to really play the victim card for a change. They, too, can point to the economic damage done to businesses in Manchester but point out “It was not our choice, our decision. It was made in Parliament. Those who voted No are responsible.” In addition, they can point to the extra demand on police, especially in the light of that banner and ‘threats made’ that cancelling had an aspect of safety and public mindedness about it.

            The Conservative Party does not really need a Conference right now. They know what’s what and are getting plenty of publicity.

            It was a great opportunity to make the opposition squirm, showing them up for what they are. A great follow up to the General Election offer.

    Who are the “we” he’s so concerned about? It’s not me because I couldn’t give a toss about what this woke prat thinks should be done.

    If he was actually serious, he’d lead by example, saying something along the lines ” this is what I’m doing to support my beliefs and I hope others will join me”. And then provide evidence by actions that he means what he says. I’d probably still ignore everything he says but at least I might have some respect for him.

          Robinson mentioned the term ‘ collusion ‘ as bad in relation to traitors getting help to stop brexit from foreign enemy governments – instead of replying ‘yes that’s what it is ‘ sajid goes all limp and focuses on his ambition to be PM one day .

          Incidentally – I was going to mention in the preamble the number of days it has been since a big majority voted to leave the Reich EU . That number is 1194

            The good thing is that, at last, the BBC are admitting ‘people’ are getting impatient for Brexit and, I note with a tone of reluctance on the part of the BBC (Fairbairn notwithstanding), that business is also starting to get impatient for the UK to be up and out of the EU.

            It is time to end Brexit Uncertainty before it becomes a medical complaint and costs the NHS hundreds of millions of £s.

    I see the cowardly useless incompetent Tories are planning to allow those in detached homes to add another two stories to them without the issue of planning permission!

    The reason the give for this is ‘growing families’ andn it hasn’t taken commentators long to realise who the Tories are aiming this relaxation of UK laws at.

    England is being destroyed by building needed to accommodate the insane levels of migration to the country and all the cowardly useless incompetent Tories are doing is sitting back and letting it happen.

    The current PM Boris is so far to the left he has attempted to allow Islamic terrorists back from Syria, and has had to be constrained by his own cabinet!

Even so with the creeking levels of sustainability, the authorities are forcing County Councils and of course local councils to find available land on which to contruct housing- madeness-we are running out of land unless it is their policy to completely destroy all landscapes leaving nowhere for people to walk, roam or simply enjoy the wonderful spaces we have in these small but precious islands.

    TOADY Watch #2 – Deja Damien Vu Green all over again

    The BBC (via Rick Nobinson) are keen to keep smearing the current Prime Minister. I wonder if they will keep it going for a fortnight or until resignation like last time?

    On the other hand the BBC could ask why it has taken Charlotte Edwardes twenty years to raise this ‘incident’.

    The BBC should ask her on to the TOADY Programme and ask her why she did not raise it when Boris Johnson ran for public office, and was elected, as Mayor of London.

    The BBC could observe that #MeToo might have been an appropriate time to do it.

    Then there was the EU Referendum Campaign and the fuss on the bus. Will the BBC ask Charlotte Edwardes why she did not raise this complaint then?

    Boris Johnson has been PM just for a few weeks and that after a leadership contest. The BBC could invite Charlotte Edwardes on to the TOADY programme to ask her about her timing. Why did she remain silent during the Conservative leadership campaign?

    Then, the fact of Brexit and the PMs statements about it, The fact that we are within five weeks of a deadline. Charlotte Edwardes timing appears to be highly suspicious to any ordinary person, the ‘person in the street’. Will the BBC mention that? Will the BBC ask her about it?

    I wonder … . . . . .

      If a hand on her knee was so traumatic for this poor innocent maiden, maybe journalism wasn’t the right career choice for her. I’m sure there must be a convent which is hiring.

    To carry on with all these disgusting things the RSM is accusing Boris of doing decades ago I have a scoop for them.
    Remember to insert lots of the usual ‘coulds’ ‘mays’ and other words you use to make the article meaningless.
    You can also add the usual ‘far’ ‘extreme’ ‘hard’ right and nazi, fascist misogynist and the rest of the words the lefties use to describe anyone to the right of Stalin, Mao, Corbyn and the bbc.

    Here goes.
    I have it on good authority that when Boris was 5 years old he didn’t finish his meal and left some broccoli on his plate.
    A starving child in Africa could be kept alive for an extra day with that piece of broccoli so you could say that Boris murdered that child by wasting the broccoli instead of somehow letting the child have it.

    So then.
    Boris is a child murderer.
    He is evil incarnate.
    Never mind that some lefty now claims he touched her thigh in the last century, now you ‘could’ say he kills children.

      Your Lordship- I think we will now see with Boris what we have seen with President Trump. The media will ensure a regular supply of wimmin who were groped twenty years ago and ‘shady deals’ coming to the fore.
      Prepare for Boris’ taxes to suddenly reveal discrepancies, secret contacts with Russia and/or Ukraine to suddenly be discovered, mysterious blondes suing Boris for x amounts for some form of abuse, etc etc
      The bbC will ensure that these are much investigated, debated and run on all beeb news/comment programmes for weeks and months on end.
      I realised at 10.00 TV news on beeb 1 last night that we are entering a new no-holds barred campaign by Beeb , Stage 2, which will focus on How Boris is “disobeying the Law”, “lied to the Queen” etc as well as all the many misdemeanours that will be uncovered from the past. By the end of it, we will wonder where the quaint idea of bbc ‘impartiality’ ever came from. But we will see -yet again- how it gets completely carried away on a licence-fee paid ‘hatchet job’. And this one’s gonna get really nasty.
      At the same time, beeb will show no embarrassment at all as it publicly co-ordinates the opposition, all masquerading as ‘news’.

    At the week end – a certain state broadcaster type called frank Gardner – was doing a piece on behalf of the Saudi tourist board on the devalued ‘from our own correspondent ‘ .
    The Saudis , it seems , wants western tourists , presumably to bang up to hold as hostages for drinking a bottle of booze or wearing an en – ger – land shirt . Then some tearful sop can spend time touring msm studios bitching about how ‘the British government isn’t doing nuffin’

      You know thirty five years or more ago I was a devoted listener to this programme . That was back in the day when the BBC didn’t ram a liberal agenda down your throat at every opportunity and I still , perhaps naively, trusted most of what was broadcast. These days I can’t bear to listen to or watch the output from thecstate funded broadcaster , it makes my blood pressure increase to dangerous levels. I am sure that getting rid of the BBC would result in a dramatic increase in the health of the nation so reducing the strain on the NHS. Come on BBC do the decent thing for the nation and collectively throw your self off the top of Broadcadting House.

        Double – that programme does an hour show called ‘correspondents look ahead ‘ at the end of the year . It used to have a bit of authority and I’d just take it in – now – of course – it’s just a vehicle for Sopel et al to continue their dig at all those they have been biased about all year . What a waste.

          Fed, they used to allow JoeListener a chance to follow that end-of-year-special with their comments on an AnyAnswers to AnyQuestions basis.

          A few years back, the BBC decided to shut the public out.

          It may have been because they were showing the BBC correspondents up and were more knowledgeable and accurate. In the good old days, both programmes were enjoyable and informative.

          I don’t bother listening now.

    I know it is stating the obvious that the country is split more or less down the middle on Brexit, except of course that Leave won the referendum by a decisive margin, but what I continue to find remarkable is how the two camps are able to interpret the exact opposites from the same facts. Being a Leaver I usually think that the Remainer Leadership interpretations are standing truth, logic , common sense on their heads and I am convinced that they must know that they are lying to themselves and others and doing this for personal gain of one sort or another. Of course I regard the rank and file Remainers as dupes unable to think for themselves , swallowing whole great heaps of crap and acting against their own best interests with zero understanding of what they are doing. I used to pity them but increasingly I think of them with disdain.
    But I am beginning to regard some of the Remain leaders as zealots who actually believe that the EU is something sacred for which they are prepared to sacrifice not only themselves but our democracy as well. It’s a bit like the Gotterdamerung , a funeral pyre of the Gods, they would rather see the country brought to its knees , millions suffering , than see us leave the EU.
    If we do leave these powerful people will be highly dangerous because they will want to show how terrible life is outside the EU and must not be allowed to go anywhere near the levers of power because they may well try and do great damage. They must be ostracised, banished from government and no return to public life. There can be no forgiveness or rehabilitation for these folks.

      If we do leave, even if only a pretend leave ala May’s capitulation document, the the leavers will be ensuring that there is not much food on the shelves, no petrol at the pumps and chaos on the roads etc.

      There are so many ways of causing massive disruption, including calling a general strike, that it wouldn’t be a case of if they try to screw up this country but by how much.

      Of course, the reasons they would do it is primarily to blame all things of their making on Brexit, their contempt for the British People and their hate for this country and democracy and freedom.

      Any major problems we have after a real Brexit would be deliberately created and not caused by Brexit. The remainiac scum will stoop to any depths such is their complete obsession with the religion of EU membership.

    Double – I disagree on the claim that the country is split down the middle . It may have been close to that at the referendum but I think my ‘ ordinary joe ‘ view would now say that the resolve to leave has strengthened just by the lies and deceit of the state .
    Project fear hasn’t worked . The state broadcaster goeballs propaganda is failing .

    As for your view that some think the ReichEU is ‘sacred ‘ – that’s the truth – it comes from its origins of trying to stop the krauts making panzers again . But that bit died but now the supranational project to enlarge the power and bank balances of those running it take priority .

    Even if the UK lands up being locked into the US of Europe it will fail when then next external threat comes . They are a bunch of snowflake more comfortable finding someone to ‘blame ‘ for something than sorting out an issue – such as uncontrolled economic invasion of labour from North Africa .

    But I’m guessing the Reich is more likely to be attacked from within through civil war than a fight for resources with another economic block I just hope when the next European civil war happens the UK won’t try and do anything about it – but then again it’s unlikely to last very long ……

    These attacks on Boris are just a step by step rehash of the “Bring Down Trump” playbill.

    1. Not democratically elected. Check.
    2. Dodgy dealings in a previous role. Check.
    3. Inappropriate conduct with a woman from donkey’s years ago. Check.

    I reckon next will be collusion with a hostile foreign power, probably not Russia as that would be too obvious a copy of the anti-Trump smear-lies. My guess would be Saudi Arabia or China.

    I don’t know if the allegations of him touching a woman’s thigh are true or not, but I would guess that the woman was happy to go along with it at the time or she would have reported it to the police or her employer. She is, after all, a journalist.

    The latest in the endless scatter gun mud slinging at Boris comes from journalist Charlotte Edwardes.
    Well, here’s my take on it for what it’s worth…
    Don’t you think it’s just a tad strange that you wait twenty years to cause a kerfuffle over a squeezed thigh?
    She wasn’t an abused child living in terror. She was/is a highly articulate grown up journalist. I don’t know if he did or he didn’t, but I do know the BBC would much rather talk about “Thigh–gate” than more money for hospitals…or how much money we’ll save from leaving the EU…or how well our economy is actually doing despite all the doomsters.
    In the interests of this site I’ve googled the lady in question and (just being a bloke here) she’s definitely a fine looking lass.

    Only one more thing to say on the subject.
    Things could have been a lot worse for Boris.

    In 1999 a woman alleges she was ‘groped’ by Boris when she sat next to him. Did she report it at the time ? Was Boris adjusting his chair and his hand touched her thigh ? Who knows ? who cares ? Has she dined out on that for years I wonder ?

    Ask anyone their movements 6 months/6 weeks/6 days ago, and most would be hard pushed to remember, let alone 20 years ago.

    But, before all the Me Too movement got going, I should think that most women have felt a hand on the bum, or eyes focused on a cleavage, when in the close company of blokes in past decades. The word ‘inappropriate’ wasn’t even invented then ! so us girlies would respond accordingly with a backhander or a witty riposte.

    Personally I lost count at the number of times I was cornered (back in the mid 60s) by an over amorous young lab scientist, but I soon told him where he could shove is Bunsen Burner !!! I cant even remember his name now, that’s how important – not, it was.

    History of the NHS which you won’t hear from the BBC –

    “Willink was elected as Member of Parliament (MP) for Croydon North in a wartime by-election on 19 June 1940. There was only one other candidate, an independent, who received a very small vote. In 1940, he was appointed Special Commissioner for the homeless in London.

    Willink was made a Privy Counsellor in 1943, the year he became Minister of Health, a role in which he served until the Conservatives lost the 1945 general election. Willink, with John Hawton, was responsible for the 1944 White Paper, following the Beveridge Report, called A National Health Service. It proposed the creation of a fully comprehensive, universal healthcare system, free of charge and available to all citizens irrespective of means.

    When Labour came into office in 1945, it presented its own plan in preference to Willink’s, which it had supported”

    After the EU referendum many in England, and the UK, believed that the Members of Parliament sitting in the Parliament of the United Kingdom would respect, honour, and implement the result to leave the European Union, how wrong we were.
    To some it is evidently clear why many of the MPs sitting in the UK parliament do not want power transferring back to the UK parliament from the Unelected European commission, they wouldn’t know what to do with the new found powers, and being directly accountable to the voter for ALL decisions made on the UK frightens them, no longer could they hide behind EU.
    The UK Parliament is not fit for purpose, 2/3rds of MPs want to hand control of the UK to unelected EU Commissioners, whilst voters in 2/3rds of constituencies voted to Leave the EU, they do not represent people’s views, their manifesto’s are now as worthless as their promises.
    England overwhelmingly voted to leave, and has had no voice over the fiasco being played out in Westminster, First Ministers of Scotland, Wales, and N. Ireland have had plenty to say, whilst England is continually ignored.
    We need an English Parliament now more than ever, for England to have Democratic equality with Scotland, Wales, and N. Ireland with in the UK, for our voice to be heard and our concerns addressed.
    Food for thought.

      To save everyone the trouble, they get some woman on to babble on for ages to tell us that most people who are struck by lightning are outside clutching lightning conductors, or anglers, most of whom, it is speculated, self-identify as being men.

      In another item they appear to demolish the idea that a third of soldiers on the Western Front in WW1 were ‘black’, explaining that there were other theatres in which the African, (black?) troops and Indian (surely brown?) troops played a major role.

      Then just at the end, if I heard them right, they said ‘a third of UK troops being black was a conservative estimate’. I doubt if that would be possible even in these ‘multiracial’ times let alone in 1914-18. I refuse to use ‘BBC Sounds’ so I would be obliged to anyone who has sold their soul to ‘fact check’ this.

      The item on the 130,000 ‘tory dead’ was a bit weak too. The result seemed to be ‘not proven’, while admitting that NHS funding hadn’t been cut. There was no mention that we have been importing unhealthy people in recent years, the extended elderly family of immigrants, that surely must have some effect. (Sorry immigrants need no health care and never get old). The best explanation, I thought, was that a ‘glitch’ in reduced cardiac deaths a decade ago meant that at some point the survivors must die, boosting the death rate when that happens.

      FFS it’s easy The Guardian is not an organ of truth it and its writer are PR people
      I don’t have to waste my time fact checking the Guardian, cos I already knw it is almost always misleading

      @JimS what they concluded is that Ash had taken a flawed study and further hyped it up
      The fallacy was the “all other things being equal”
      They had taken EU countries death rates this century vs the UK’s
      but “all other things WERE NOT equal”
      The UK had earlier had a huge increase in life cos we had given up smoking earlier than them
      So by now of course our lifespan is not increasing

      Strangely that wasn’t on the podcast that I down loaded , so I checked the online edition
      It begins “according BBC London historian Louise Raw ..”
      STOP right there …we know her
      She is that nutter that is always ranting that Tommy is a hate preacher
      .. and by the standard rule that a libmobber who throws out label is a person who is projecting themselves
      we know that she is the hate preacher and agenda pusher
      So even worse than the Guardian.

      “A third that fought for Britain in WW1 were black and Asian”
      What she means was
      ‘at that time a third of the people who fought for the British Empire were B or A’
      Now since the empire is mostly B or A yes you could get a fairly high number of troops , near their home countries .
      So I am not going to dispute her figure too much
      She did say at the end her 30% fig could could be conservative cos she doesn’t know how many B & A were living in the UK and went to fight here or in Europe
      Tosh .. It’s up to her to provide evidence
      Seems to me there were very very few
      eg I know the first black man to come to Scunthorpe was in 1913
      and he didn’t fight in the war
      In historical records in our region we almost only come across British/Irish with the odd north European .

      And you can’t just count raw soldiers
      If someone gave their life obviously that is an equal count
      but you can’t equate a guy who sat in a trench for four years with a guy in a remote are who only saw action for 2 days.
      I can imagine a lot of Sikh soldiers fighting for years etc.
      but it’s not like a third of commonwealth war graves are for non-whites surely ?

      There are two Wikipedia pages
      Europe cemeteries 314,176 (almost all white)
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Commonwealth_War_Graves_Commission_World_War_I_memorials_to_the_missing_in_Belgium_and_France
      Rest of world 138,062 (mix between African/Indian/ white British/Oz/NZ/Can
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Commonwealth_War_Graves_Commission_World_War_I_memorials_to_the_missing

      I’m guessing of the 452K graves at least 370K were white so her 30% of one third seems way off
      internet say 60K Canadian, 60K Australian

    About the same time last century that this lass is accusing Boris of touching her thigh, wasn’t major shagging edwina.
    What does he (major, a married bloke) think about a single bloke who might have touched a girls thigh last century.
    I reckon major having curry every night is worse than a possible touch on the thigh.
    It’s almost as bad as calling proroguing unlawful when he done it himself.
    Maybe Boris is copying major from his earlier days.

    Greta Garbage should concentrate on the one and only thing which has a chance of saving the planet, population control.
    I bet she won’t though.
    Where’s she off to next? China, Russia?
    I don’t think so.
    Owen Jones could also go off telling others how to behave.
    He could start off somewhere safe like Israel where he can go to high places like Gilboa but if he goes to any of the ‘Stans I would advise him to avoid high places (such as blocks of flats)

    Eleanor Rigby going off on Sky about Boris yet everything is “questions are being asked” or “allegations are being made” and similar meaningless newspeak where she gets the message out that Boris is an evil sex maniac but without any grounds or proof.

      EG
      The lady has made an allegation of indecent assault against the Prime Minister. Since everything now must be referred to the constabulary I think we can assume that Mr Johnson will be arrested like anyone else accused of such a crime after the lady in question has made a full statement .

      The arrest of a serving British Prime Minister ( if only in title) may be enough for the traitors to carry through on the coup and go for the vote of no confidence .

      Meanwhile the ghouls in the state broadcaster will be ranting about ‘ career ender’ and ‘ damaged whatever the outcome ‘ in that pretty well rehearsed way they have when it is some one they choose not to approve .

      Perhaps if BoJo gets bail he will be the first serving PM to wear a tag .

        Thing is that was a long time ago and twenty years later that thigh will have most probably lost any appeal it might have had at the time.

      Do you think sad Mister Major might have caught salmonella? They say it’s a nasty bug which can lay dormant for years, but that could certainly account for his strange behaviour now – delusions of grandeur, messiah complex, regarding himself as a statesman and so on. Poor old lad. Is there a cure?

    Tonight Radio 4 at 8:30pm: Whiteness It’s on race, whiteness and class.
    \\ Bristol-based journalist Neil Maggs talks to Eric Kaufmann about the inevitable decline of white majorities by the end of the century and how to prevent white people falling for far-right conspiracy theories about being wiped out. //
    (Isn’t that sentence a contradiction ?
    When the Soviets sent Russians to do the top jobs in Eastern Bloc countries wasn’t that a form of the “Great Replacement” ?
    Were those natives wrong to feel offended ?
    Last week I heard the trailer but couldn’t find the prog


    Eichorn gies his view on one of the 3 guests

      Stew- ‘Prof’ Steve Eichhorn is delusional.
      I mentioned in an earlier sourced post today what things look like when a white minority has to live under a black majority.
      If we moved what is going on in South Africa across to the UK, the following would have occurred:
      Whites in the UK would have brutally murdered 18 blacks, in a cowardly fashion, in the month of September ;
      The government (in which there would certainly have been only white cabinet ministers) would have proceeded with dispossessing black people of property they might own, based on a policy of Expropriation Without Compensation;
      Discriminatory legislation would have ensured that senior positions in ministries, the civil service and any state-run/sponsored enterprise would be white only;
      Scores of blacks would have left the UK in the month of September, due to racist legislation and elite looting resulting in infrastructure collapse. Many whites would also have left due to the country falling apart, general insecurity and poor job prospects.
      I think before he continues with his drivel, ‘Prof’ Steve Eichhorn has a look at what happens in a reversed reality. He will be astonished to find the racism he thinks he knows so well has a rather different complexion from the one he has identified, and may have to do a fundamental rethink. He may find that it is all about what individuals, groups of individuals and states do in a given situation, that matters; it has nothing to do, in principle, with their RACE and everything to do with their beliefs, attitudes and actions.
      Is there anything worse than a guilt-laden, self-loathing whitey?

      Stew – I got called a ‘white sumpremacist’ here last week by someone who then said they are leaving the site cos it’s racist – and volunteer moderator.

      Never been called that before and had trouble spelling it – but I’m only – thick brexiter so that figures .

      It would have troubled me once – but not no more as the threshold for ‘ offence ‘ drops rapidly … when certain types want it to of course ….

      I was thinking about the way poor jo cox murder has been used by certain MPs yet other MPs who have met their deaths have been air brushed – Ian Gow and Airey Neve for instance .

      The attack on a sitting cabinet by mortar bomb in Downing Street as well as the Brighton bomb doesn’t got much of a mention either …

      “prevent white people falling for far-right conspiracy theories about being wiped out”
      That will be those people who have seen what the UN has published about what it calls ‘Replacement Migration’, then:
      https://www.un.org/en/development/desa/population/publications/ageing/replacement-migration.asp
      What is striking about the report, which was written at the beginning of the century, is how ‘constrained and moderate’ it is in comparison to the frothing-at-the-mouth enthusiasm now being expressed for the Great Replacement. For instance, it states that Britain’s annual figure of immigration in the preceeding decades had been around 80,000 per annum and that it was sufficient to prevent population decline. Since then, thanks to the extremism of the Blair regime, which was enthusiastically inherited by the Conservatives (sic), it has more than tripled.

    The BBC continues with its campaign of lies against the Tories…Boris in particular of course.

    Nick Robinson wanted Sajid Javid to apologise to Corbyn for Tories mocking him when he devoted all six questions at PMQs to buses….now Tories have announced some money to be invested in buses Robinson said the Tories should say sorry…Corbyn was right! [Must be an election coming…BBC lobbying for Labour] That of course doesn’t take into account why cuts were made…due to Labour’s disastrous stewardship of the economy which meant there was ‘no money left’.

    Second…everyone, everyone, mocked and derided Corbyn, quite rightly…there were major issues with Brexit and he, as always, avoided talking about the issue…the major issue effecting the country…and who else criticised Corbyn? Er…the BBC…..

    https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/983829/PMQs-jeremy-corbyn-theresa-may-Andrew-Neil-Brexit-news-Esther-McVey-apology

    ”He talked about BUSES!’ Andrew Neil BLASTS Corbyn’s lacklustre PMQs performance’

    ‘Andrew Neil appeared perplexed at the end of PMQs after Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn failed to question the Prime Minister on Brexit, choosing instead to focus on bus services.

    Mr Corbyn was expected to challenge Theresa May before the Prime Minister and her Cabinet retreat to Chequers for crunch Brexit talks.

    The BBC Daily Politics host blasted the leader of the opposition for his unusual decision: “Jeremy Corbyn decided to go on buses.

    “Bus fares, bus services, falling passenger numbers and he devoted all six questions to the situation of buses in the country.”
    Mr Neil continued: “An important issue, millions of people use them but you can visibly see the relief on the Tory benches that he hadn’t gone on Brexit, where muddle still seems to be the order of the day and division.

    “Or Mr Trump’s upcoming visit. Or even the Pension Secretary who, as we speak, is probably preparing to make an apology to the House of Commons because of what she had said about the National Audit Office report on universal credit.

    “None of this came up. Mr Corbyn, he kept all six questions to buses.”

    Robinson also, as usual with the BBC, wanted to know when there would be an inquiry into ‘islamophobia’ in the Tory Party….of course the BBC’s definition of ‘islamophobia’ is extremely wide….pretty well without bounds…just criticise Islam in any way and you’re denounced as an Islamophobe and racist…which is pretty remarkable when you consider most people would describe Islam as one of the darkest, most intolerant, unpleasant, backward, prejudiced, violent and oppressive ideologies out there. Criticism is warranted and needed…as David Lammy demands…we must not appease Fascism in all its forms.

    Then again perhaps along with an inquiry into ‘Islamophobia’ the Tories should run an inquiry into anti-Semitism at the BBC…its reporting on Israel, and its support for mass Muslim immigration, has helped fuel massive anti-Jewish prejudice across Europe and the world, Jews are once again fleeing Europe as the BBC stokes the anti-Israel zeitgeist…..BBC News kills Jews.

    This is the BBC that today, yet again, gave the Islamist extremist Baroness Warsi a free-hand to promote the Islamist cause…telling us that Islam is totally compatible with Western, liberal, democratic, Christian values….but we know that is completely and provably untrue. It’s Islamist propaganda peddled by the BBC.

      I now have 15 since I started keeping them.

      I thought they might be used as evidence of harassment.

      What is harassment?

      The law states that harassment is when a person behaves in a way which is intended to cause you distress or alarm. The behaviour must happen on more than one occasion. It can be the same type of behaviour or different types of behaviour on each occasion. For example, one text message intended to distress you is not harassment. Two text messages may be harassment. One text message and one phone call may also be harassment.

    Taking the advice of one of the posters on this site last week to switch from Radio Al Beeb to LBC.
    A bad move! Because today, I encountered a chap called Eddie Mair and he was, and is, running a ‘Bo Jo Hate Fest’. He has opened a ‘safe space’ for groped women to vent their vitriolic comments about BoJo and his alleged ‘Grope’. No men allowed to phone in, its a women only.
    Evidently, this chap Mair hates Brexit, and don’t we know it. Bet he was trained at Al Beeb or gets a pension from them?
    Off switch, until Nigel comes on at 6 pm.

      Eddie Mair hates Boris. He once called him a “nasty piece of work” in what was meant to be an interview, but was just a hit job.

      According to John Humphrys in his new book, Eddie Mair is also an egomaniac who cannot work with anyone else. Humphrys reckons he ruined the PM programme when he presented it.

      Eddie Mair is also a homosexual activist, which may explain his hatred for Boris, who is certainly not, but it does not excuse it.

    An old story but the lefty rag the Independent has begged that the newspapers ties to Russia and Saudi Arabia NOT BE INVESTIGATED as it would lead to a potential collapse of their financial future.

    “The Evening Standard and Independent have asked the government not to investigate the news outlets’ Saudi Arabian investors, saying the UK media industry could become financially unsustainable if officials probe the source of the offshore investments.”

    How can they possibly try this argument whilst claiming to be a trusted and “Independent” source of news.

    Obviously the Government listened to them as it petered out….

If Boris did grope her thigh at a drunken dinner party was he led on, was she flirtng, was she giving him receptive signals? She does seem to have a bit of a thing for high flying media celebrities.

      BBC making the most of completely unproven, unprovable allegations that look like politically motivated smears by someone just got a job at the Remain Sunday Times, lives with Remain Peston and is Remain herself.
