Weekend Thread 5 October 2019

Much despondency on the site and the various bits of the State are not doing themselves any favours – including of course the biased State Broadcaster.

    A hard few weeks awaits us. Will we leave the EU or will be stuck in yet another extension with a GE building up and Labour being supported by the BBC.

    This time next month we could be free or we might be facing hard socialism.

    Fingers crossed that Boris has some big moves coming but I fear that the worse could be yet to come.

    The bias from the ‘state broadcaster’ is going to start getting ugly

        NCBBC, how?

        Think that depends on Trump’s attitude. Whether he draws the wagons into a circle and hunkers down to fight the process (a la Nixon) or whether he shrugs, says “What’s new?” and carries on. He’s had nearly three years of this as President.

        At each step on the Sopel Way, the (so-called) Democratic Party has failed to unseat him.

      Smoogie. The left in Toto and remainiacs of all stripes have been behaving ugly for years. No doubt they will get worse like a.million Renfields shouting for their EU masters to repay their loyalty by sucking all the blood out of what’s left of British democracy. And it will happen, appropriately, at Halloween.

    smoogie – “…going to start…”
    It’s been their default for many years. Their PC ideology demands it, as firmly as a good Communist party organ like PRAVDA required bad-mouthing ‘capitalism’.
    For the rest, we are in the midst of the double-slit experiment. Is Boris a wave or is he a particle? We are both in leave mode (without a ‘deal’), and in remain mode (by whatever subterfuge), as we pass through the two slits simultaneously. Soon we will land and look, and know where we are (hopefully).
    “Facing hard socialism” – a sobering thought. If we haven’t left and the GE comes, this is what we have to bear in mind. Someone said Labour, with only 20% support could lead the show. Ms Merkel would know exactly how to handle that. She grew up in the GDR, and -if you study her past- was possibly a secretary for Agitprop. Then came the fall of The Wall, and the leopard appeared to change its spots. The rest is history.
    When it comes to deception, Boris may still only be a rank amateur.
    For those who want to leave regardless, not splitting the vote would be an essential prerequisite. And not losing heart. Staying firm.
    Hang in there.

    Countryfile = #WokeBile
    : Over on Facebook there is a mass of blowback about the staged studio photo winning the WILDLIFE photo competition.

    I feel the winning photo encapsulates the very essence of what Countryfile now stands for!
    … A pretend, sterilised version of the countryside,
    … presented to the masses as a piece of propaganda for the townies !!!

    The show’s official response

    The show doesn’t have it’s own Facebook page, so people used the 2 associated commercial pages
    #1 BBC Countryfile Magazine – Community section hundreds of full on complaints about the photo comp
    .. yet clearly seems they have deleted comments criticising the politics bit,
    …….. BUT they’ve allowed a few posts promoting anti-livestock farming videos

    #2 On the FB page of BBC Countryfile Live (show) there were just a few community posts

          I have been wondering how the bbc would respond to XR essentially making a laughing stock of themselves with their blowback stunt, but so far it seems they feel silence is golden.

          Not so Sky.

          Too much to hope that ‘looking forward to’ might involve a bit of journalism, or are they going to get rewarded for their antics with yet more of the publicity they crave and are handed by the MSM without question?

    Latest beeb webshite headline: “Terror enquiry launched into Paris police killings.”

    My my, what a surprise.

    Al-beeb’s early headlines referred to ‘a man’; an ‘IT analyst’; ‘a deaf man’ etc, never ‘a convert to islam’, and couldn’t wait to quote French authorities that it wasn’t terror-related. Probably just a tiff with his boss, or ‘mental problems’, NTDWI.

    Anyone with half a brain knew better, and now it’s confirmed.

    French alternative and dissident blog-sites seemed to have info very early on (police leak?) that his computer had pro-islamic and anti-western material, including videos of O’Barmy defending islam and denigrating those who weren’t convinced it was quite the ROP it claimed to be. If Mickaël Harpon was incited to attack the police after viewing O’Barmy stoking up anti-western, pro-islamic sentiments, does that make him complicit in the Paris attack?

    It was encouraging to read the comments on French language blogs and news sites, including mainstream ones. Ordinary readers didn’t believe a word the police, authorities and msm were saying from the start.

    People are waking up and catching on.

    They also mocked the policy of ‘diversity’ in recruitment to the police and security services, leading to someone like Mickaël Harpon having access to highly sensitive information.

    Is this really world-important news? Or bbc race-baiting?

    “Florida juror jailed for oversleeping and missing trial.”

    Note the use of photos in this non-story showing the ‘victim’ to be black and the judge white.

    (Yet they still can’t find a picture of the coloured muslim murderer in the much more important story from Paris.)

    EVERYTHING on al-beeb conforms to their liberal-left-pc agenda. Every word, every photo, every non-photo, every inflection, every omission.

    Just watched –

    Conspiracy Files: The Billionaire Global Mastermind BBC 2 (NI only)
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0008c6g

    The Telegraph wrote a (feeble) review –
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/tv/2019/09/08/conspiracy-files-billionaire-global-mastermind-review-least/

    However, the Spectator, James Delingpole was scathing –

    “With these documentaries, the BBC has lost any claim to impartiality. Its treatment of the Nazis, and of George Soros, shows that the channel is no longer interested in objectivity”
    https://www.spectator.co.uk/2019/09/with-these-documentaries-the-bbc-has-lost-any-claim-to-impartiality/

    The message is that conspiracy theories won Trump’s election, Brexit and all the right-wing gains across Europe.

    In one scene it shows Farage on Fox News where apparently Nigel blames Soros for the migration crisis.

    Reversing the argument, the BBC’s ‘bogeyman’, who is to be feared, is what they see as the ‘far-right’.

    There is no difference in the arguments except that only a tiny fraction of people take conspiracy theories seriously and virtually all left-liberals see right-wing politics as Nazism reborn.

      I’ve just watched this too. The program implies use of the term; globalist, is something right wing, whit nationalist conspiracy theorists are prone to do.

      There’s only one big problem with this assertion by the BBC – George Soros has actually written a book called; Globalisation in which he extols the virtues of globalisation. Therefore referring to George Soros as a globalist, is not in anyway racist or whatever, because George Soros IS a globalist by his own admission!!!

    • Simon Love says:

      The final conclusion of this BBC documentary, is that ALL criticism of George Soros, is based on anti-semitic conspiracy theories similar to the anti-semitic conspiracies propagated by Hitler & The Nazis—Therefore anybody who criticises George Soros is automatically a white nationalist, anti-semitic Nazi—The two are inextricably linked and cannot be separated!!!

      What about Jewish critics of Soros? Benjamin Netanyahu; Prime Minister of Israel, is another ardent critic of George Soros – Would the BBC therefore claim that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is an anti Jewish, white nationalist? (This would be the same as claiming the Pope is the most vehemently anti Catholic person on the Planet – It’s a preposterous allegation!!! Therefore we can conclude that NOT all criticism of Soros is from anti semitic, white nationalist nazis!!!)

      Netanyahu and others, hold Soros personally responsible for millions of muslims illegally entering Europe. They claim this is the primary driving factor behind the huge increase in European anti semitism, because of Muslims’ well known hatred of the Jews.

      Netanyahu has told Parisian Jews and European Jews in general, if they feel they’re lives are threatened, then they’re most welcome to emigrate to Israel for sanctuary from Islamist, anti semitic terrorism.

      “After all, the BBC have been very anti-Brexit since 2016. Despite Brexit…”
      And so have most Tory MP’s. Funny how they were quite happy to join up with the Limpdems in 2010, yet nothing from our PM in joining up with The Brexit Party which would almost guarantee our independence ?
      This fiasco has been dragged out because most of Parliament think they are above the people and do not wish to get out of the EU .
      The people will have an opportunity to change parliament in the next general election . The damage that this Parliament has done to our economy is unforgivable. – That begs the question, has our parliament been colluding behind the doors with the EU ?

    I am greatly unimpressed by Rory Stewart in so many ways.
    However, if mine ears did not deceive me as I was waking up, and caught the tail end of Toady, Justin Webb was having a go at him for being white and having the audacity to stand against mayor Khan.
    It sounded explicitly racist and anti-white to me, so I shall listen again slowly to see whether Webb has committed any offenses, which I will certainly take up with the beeb and Ofcom if he has.

    I first heard him back in the summer, being interviewed during the Tory leadership challenges. I thought then he’s no Tory. A limp dumb at best.

    I no longer listen to RBC radio output, so can’t comment but given that Mayor Khant is one of the RBC Darlings I’d not be surprised by anything they say or do, as it’s clear no one will hold them to account over it.

      WW – I listened again and agree with you. Webb lambasts Rory for being a ‘white Etonian’, and makes clear his own strong support for ‘what Khan is doing’.
      Rory -being as you say, a LimpDumb at best, feels obliged to say what a wonderful diverse mayor Khan has been, so good for London.
      He’s really not worth taking up the cudgels for, and Webb has covered his back by attaching ‘Etonian’ to the constant racial attacks.
      Should there be an election for London mayor, it sounds like Webb will be 100% behind Khan. As ever on Toady, my guess is you won’t come across any ‘impartiality’, whatsoever.

    Foscari, watch Emily Maitless in action here arguing for the case of the Islamic invasion of Hungary and by extension, Europe .
    The Hungarian minister’s argument is quite simple, that Hungarians have the right to be Hungarian and they have the right to choose who enters Hungary.
    What is genuinely fascinating is that Maitless cannot comprehend what he is saying, She just would not listen to his reasoned replies to her questions and constantly interrupts him. You can see in her eyes that she is disgusted with his comments and really wants to shout at him that he is a racist.
    And this is the example of objective and unbiased reporting that the BBC says that it is justly proud of? It is genuinely shocking to see someone who is so brainwashed and conditioned given so much power to promote and advance the BBC agenda. After the Munchetty debate it is now totally clear for all to see, that BBC broadcasters can air their personal opinions so long as they are toeing the BBC line.

    If you have the time, read the responses to this BBC article on ‘Does Multiculturalism Work?’ from 2010. The reactions are not quite what the BBC expected.

          No idea EDS. I try to remain within the ‘law’ for what it’s worth these days. Are you related to Max Incontinency perchance?

          Anways, to do it legally, follow the instructions on the teletax website. Once completed you will receive a letter from the lovely TV Licensing people, mine was signed by a customer service manager (customer??? At risk of jail or fine if non payment??? What???)

          The letter is entitled Your no licence needed confirmation. Ensure your have also cancelled a corresponding direct debit or standing order – if this is your method of paying for the teletax.

          They advise a number things that ‘you will need to know’ on the letter, like the possibility of a visit, what to do if you move house or other changes to circumstances, but as I don’t watch live TV I ignore this and sleep very well at night.

          Keep the said correspondence safe as there is a ‘no licence needed’ expiry date apparently,mine is in 2021.

          We’ll keep it legal until the real action kicks off anyhow.

    Mishal Husain ‘interviews’ some New York based arab shill who has written a book about the ‘girls who went to Syria to join the extremist group, IS’,
    “Why did the girls go and would you like a Hob Nob biscuit with your latte?”, Mishal politely asks.
    The shill replies, “They were all innocent young girls who were galvanised by The Arab Spring; they were alienated living in europe. Would you pass the sugar, please?”
    Mishal then asks a question with the answer carefully embedded in it….”and then there’s the odd one who goes to Syria because her husband told her to.” (Husain did actually say this!).
    “Yes Mishal. Please do not ask such probing questions. If this continues I will wet my burka.”, implores the shill.
    Same old Deja Poo (that undeniably eerie feeling that you’ve heard all this shit before.)
    No mention that they went to Syria because that is what, Islam and the koran instructed reinforced by a local or online imam; the ‘innocent’ young girls were going on jihad.

      Cassandra – the problem is that the British police just don’t kill enough people -particularly diverse types – to keep the indignation of the State Broadcaster happy .
      Even the diverse Islamic van and knife attackers being sent to heaven isn’t enough for the state broadcaster . I waited for the ‘ why couldn’t they have been taken alive anguish ?’

      So what to do if there aren’t enough police killings in UK ? Easy find a big country and report their problems and pretend they are UKs . Forget that the yanks are tooled up so do things differently .

        Fed, Look at the outcry from Abbott, Lammy and all the SJWs when the police started ramming the moped thieves and acid throwers and knocking them off the things.
        I’m knocking on a bit now but in 1985 a policeman called Keith Blakelock was killed in The Broadwater Farm Race Riots and the Labour leader of Haringey Council, a delightful fellow called Bernie Grant (a black man whose views were so extreme he would make Lammy and Abbott look normal) said, “”What the police got was a bloody good hiding.”
        I read that PC Blakelock was surrounded by a mob of around 50 people, he received over 40 injuries inflicted by machetes or similar weapons, and was found with a six-inch-long knife in his neck, buried up to the hilt.
        Grant had a slap on the wrist for his comments but this did not prevent him from being elected as the MP for Tottenham at the 1987 general election, one of the UK’s first Black British MPs, the others being Diane Abbott and Paul Boateng. Grant later stood for the deputy leadership of the Labour Party, but was unsuccessful.
        The BBC loved Grant and his successors Boateng, Abbott and Lammy over the years, often promoting them in a positive light, in the case of Abbott employing her as a regular on This Week.
        The police have had their hands tied behind their backs for years now, they’re not even known as a ‘police force’ but referred to as a ‘police service’ for reasons of political correctness. This is on the orders of the government.
        Deaths due to violent crime, particularly stabbings are at record levels and they mainly are committed by members of a certain demographic in society but to say this would be racist. The BBC and government won’t anyway.
        I want a Police Force, one that treats law-breakers hard and fair, just like the way the Afghan on the tube who was threatening to stab people on the tube this week was dealt with. And I want a legal system that hands out fair sentences.
        If we have a soft police ‘service’ then I’m afraid it will meet the same fate as George Dixon (Dixon of Dock Green) in The Blue Lamp.

    We are beginning to see the arrival in the Uk of the EU phenomenon of the patching together of coalitions by parties who, in themselves don’t have enough support for government.
    Alas, it’s the Left that’s succeeded in doing this first in the UK, and the product is e.g. the ‘Benn Act’. This could allow them to patch together some sort of election alliance, although Jo’s still got reservations about Jeremy.
    Whatever happens with Brexit, conservatives have a lesson to learn here, if they want to avoid living in the socialist nightmare Corbyn has in mind for us. Coalition building, avoiding vote-splitting in given constituencies etc may well turn out to be the stuff of the future for anyone who wants to succeed, especially with the Public Broadcaster now firmly in the hands of the Left.
    We need to give this serious thought while we still have time, and encourage maximum channels of communication between conservatives of all persuasions. Big Personalities need to take a back seat in this endeavour.

    We have the world wide liberal left Globalist alliance everywhere showing their true anti democratic colours. If the MSM wasn’t part of this alliance and instead of running endless propaganda and suppressing all the inconvenient truths, it actually investigated and then reported the facts then things would be very different. The conspirators in the USA would be in prison by now, Brexit would be delivered or close to being so, on the continent Le Pen , Salvini, Orban , AfD etc would all be stronger.
    It is the MSM that is the great enabler to the liberal hegemony that we are living through. By brainwashing millions of Westeners with an ideology which is directly against their best interests , it allows its liberal elite to shut down opposition, make ‘laws’ which secure their status, to manipulate democracy or even as we see in the UK to ignore democracy entirely when necessary. The MSM is the mortar which binds the Globalist world view together. Therefore the most important thing to do is to destroy the stranglehold that the MSM on what is permitted to be said and discussed. Crucially the censorship of the internet , which the Globalists are pursuing must be resisted as this is the medium that can reveal the truth to millions as a President Trump is demonstrating. I would urge Boris and Nigel to adopt similar policies on communication, by the MSM altogether , ignore them totally, lock them out of the national conversation.

    No doubt some of you may have read this before BUT I think it worth putting forward again, as it would appear so many of those strange people sitting in what we call the House of Commons, seem to have lost an sence at all:
    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
    – Knowing when to come in out of the rain
    – Why the early bird gets the worm
    – Life isn’t always fair
    – And maybe it was my fault
    Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).
    His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
    Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
    Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
    Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
    Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realise that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
    Common Sense was preceded in death:
    – by his parents … Truth and Trust,
    – by his wife… Discretion,
    – by his daughter… Responsibility,
    – and by his son … Reason.
    He is survived by his 5 stepbrothers:
    – I Know My Rights
    – I Want It Now
    – Someone Else Is To Blame
    – I’m A Victim
    – Pay me for Doing Nothing
    Not many attended his funeral because so few realised he was gone.
    If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

      You are a brave person, Despair. I listened yesterday. It was embarrassing last night. Shaun Ley lost control. In fact, he appeared to abdicate early on.

      Major embarrassment for the BBC (I suspect Shaun was feeling it acutely, hence his reluctance to intervene as Chair) was that they had overstacked the hall with raving Lefties, a howling Socialist LeftMob. In Somerset, of all places. That bit of BBC vetting went well.

      I used to quite like listening to Jeanette Winterson but she has now turned into an extreme Socialist harpie. She wants to pay more tax. That’s OK. You can pay it quite voluntarily. I wonder if her tax affairs would allow a Chancellor to take more?

      Shame that Nigel Farage didn’t pick her up on her desire to fund things. Sale of her Spitalfields house might raise a bob or two for UK education and health.

      The BBC vet the questions as well as the audience. It is noticeable how controlled they are.

    “June Sarpong: TV presenter appointed BBC director of creative diversity”

    _109103108_gettyimages-1140434096.jpg

    TV presenter and campaigner June Sarpong has been appointed the BBC’s first director of creative diversity.
    Sarpong is known to viewers for appearing on Channel 4’s youth strand T4, Loose Women and Sky News.
    She has also written two books on diversity issues and been a prominent advocate for change in the media and beyond.
    Director general Tony Hall said she would have “a wide remit to deliver change”.
    Sarpong said: “I relish the challenge of working with senior leadership to make the BBC more inclusive and representative of the broad and diverse audience it serves.”

    …. Or, more specifically, she’s going see how many white men she can get rid of.

        As all heterosexual white men at the BBC are cultural Marxists. Getting rid of them would be good news.

        Creative Ideas for delivering a change to the sexual and racial diversity of the BBC, making it more inclusive and representative of the type of low IQ audience, now left watching the BBC today.

        As ordinary intelligent people have now turned off the BBC. Unemployed Women of ethnicity are now the main audience of the BBC. Therefore Lord Hall should be replaced by Sarpong and all BBC programs should reflect this fact.

        To be more inclusive and representative of this more politically narrow and ethnically diverse audience, and as there are now 100 diverse languages spoken in Britain. Programs for Remainers should be in Polish and French, followed by Bengali and Gujarati for Asians and Swahili and Pidgin for Blacks. English should be reduced to one percent for Cultural Marxists only.

        Everyone else should be pleased not to watch the BBC at all. White people should now watch Yesterday, Drama, C5, ITV3, Film4, Talking Pictures and Movies4Men for dramas set in Yorkshire such as Heartbeat, All Creatures and Last of the Summer Wine.

    A year ago, to the day, I wrote this….

    ‘Astoundingly racist, unpleasant and highly political attack on Tory London Mayoral candidate Shaun Bailey by the BBC and friends….Bailey who is black and has dragged himself out of a deprived start in life and built a new one with intelligence, hard work and determination….BBC dismisses him as house boy.’

    This morning Justin Webb launched a similarly unpleasant, not to say racist, attack on Rory Stewart…for being white and Etonian [Webb no doubt forgot ‘male’] suggesting that one, he should stand aside and let Labour’s Sadiq Khan take the Mayorship again, and two, that a white man should not be standing against a Black and a Muslim candidate….this from a BBC that was happy to unnecessarily use an offensive quote calling the black Shaun Bailey a ‘token ghetto boy’

    ‘ ‘You mention that you are proud of the diversity of the mayoral race in London, you are a white guy and Old Etonian – it’s not really 2020 is it, really, to be challenging a black man who is the conservative candidate and the Muslim mayor.”

    Clearly the BBC has a bit of a preference for who it would like to be Mayor of London…and he ain’t black, he ain’t white and he certainly ain’t Tory.

    If you get a chance to listen to the interview note how quick Webb jumps in defending Khan exclaimng ‘You’re not saying he’s an extremist are you?’ when Rory said politics was being polarised and he wanted to be the calm centre of sweetness and light. I suppose it might depend on how you define an ideology that is anti-Semitic, misogynist, anti-Christian, anti-anything and anybody that isn’t Muslim, divisive, intolerant, violent, gives divine sanction to slavery and of course, as the BBC tells us now…allows the ‘marriage’, and sexual exploitation, of 9 year old girls….but of course we knew that didn’t we? Muhammed and his actions being the fundamental guide to how Muslims behave.

    A white man, by virtue of the colour of his skin alone, and presumably some inherited ‘original sin’ from his white forefathers, cannot stand for Mayor of London but a man who proudly professes to adhere to such an ideology is OK? I await Jon Snow coming to London and declaring that he’d ‘never seen so many back people in one place’….the anti-white racism oozes out of these media liberals…not something that the white population of this country will appreciate…not only are they nasty, racist and evil but that they must repent the sins of their fathers…I imagine the kick-back may not be pleasant as they get fed up being denigrated and maligned by the chattering classes.

    Webb typifies the liberal, white liberal, cringe, the pseudo guilt wrapped up in a desire to be the ones to rescue the BME, subjugated, downtrodden and tyrannised by their white oppressors, the post-colonial colonialism, the ‘White Saviours’…lol…must check David Lammy’s Twitter feed to see if he’s criticising Webb.

    Robert Fisk of course was a famous example of this when he was being beaten up by Afghans and he said he would do just the same if he were an Afghan after what ‘The West’ had done…but of course that didn’t stop him punching two of them in the face….I imagine if Sadiq Khan was a Tory he’d get a metaphorical ‘punch in the face’ from Webb despite Webb’s liberal conscience..being a Tory outweighs being brown and Muslim, or black as Bailey found out….a ‘conscience’ that apparently speaks for us all…as does Naga Munchetty….thank god somebody said what she did…no, really…..the BBC had been far too easy going on Trump for too long.

    Robert Fisk:

    ‘”I tried to bang my fist on my side until I realised it was bleeding from a big gash on the wrist – the mark of the tooth I had just knocked out of a man’s jaw, a man who was truly innocent of any crime except that of being the victim of the world.

    “I had spent more than two-and-a-half decades reporting the humiliation and misery of the Muslim world and now their anger had embraced me too.
    If I were an Afghan refugee in Kila Abdullah, I would have done just what they did.

    “I would have attacked Robert Fisk. Or any other Westerner I could find.”‘

      Whilst listening to commercial radio for the Saturday afternoon footy – did a quick wiki of Mr Justin Webb. Apparently he only earns £200k at the state broadcaster whilst Tourette’s Robinson is on £300k. Heartbreaking

      So I fear the the ‘eton ‘ line might be a bit of envy because Webb cannot afford to send any of his three kids there . Perhaps we should have a whip round .

      I think the race issue will become more prominent as London is rapidly becoming non white and non British . The state broadcaster will go for the ‘politician reflecting the culture of the population ‘ line which is of course against the kind of line previously used .

      Maybe Webb thinks he has to make headlines to become the head of the Tribe after the Humphreys bloke went off to count his pension and or turn up on Classic FM …..

      Personally it would be best if the mayor of London is actually a Londoner – but the frankly weird Rory Stewart will have an advantage with knowledge of illegal drugs .

If not he becomes a liability to German car makers, French wine growers etc and will rapidly have his mind changed for him. All depends on the Ex Tory rebels.

      When libmob throw Oswald Moseley’s name around
      and in outrageously mudslinging try to equate Farage, Boris. TR with him
      They never give the context of Moseley like that he served in a Labour Party cabinet
      and was in a party called National Party of Europe

      I get this from Wikipedia but maybe some one here knows more.

      Political party
      Conservative Party (1918–1922)
      Independent (1922–1924; 1940–1948)
      Labour Party (1924–1931)
      New Party (1931–1932)
      British Union of Fascists (1932–1940)
      Union Movement (1948–1973) in which Mosley continued to work towards his goal of ‘Europe-a-Nation’

      Other political affiliations National Party of Europe (1962–1980)
      The National Party of Europe (NPE) was an initiative undertaken by a number of political parties in Europe during the 1960s to help increase cross-border co-operation and work towards European unity.

      Stew – having listened to our Justin for more times than I wish – I get the impression that the job bores him and often he is just going through the motions .

      I wouldn’t be surprised if he were to be ‘ promoted ‘ .
      One day the idea that a certain ethnicity can represent an electorate better than another will be discredited . Bit like the insatiable desire for women to occupy the roles formerly held be men and the assumption that they will preform the role better than the boys . The current parliament disproves that easily .

      Webb is a self-righteous racist. He thought linking his racism to ‘Etonian’ would blur what he is about.
      But we know.

      Whereas Justin Webb got to his BBC position by hard work ?
      … not privilege ?
      \\ Peter Holmes Woods was a British journalist, reporter and newsreader.
      He was one of the BBC’s best known broadcasters of his day. He was the biological father of BBC broadcaster Justin Webb

      Stew – I quite like some of Rosen’s stuff. Often listen to him. ‘Word of mouth’ I think, it’s called. Entertaining on issues of language. But, by the looks of it, another typical beeboid, with politics to match.
      We need to keep up with the language game. We are living in a time when language is twisted and perverted beyond belief. And ‘weaponised’.
      So: know your enemy…

      … … … …

      Lord Singh said: “The need for sensitivity in talking about religious, political or social issues has now been taken to absurd proportions, with telephone insistence on trivial textual changes right up to going into the studio, making it difficult to say anything worthwhile.”

      A BBC spokeswoman said: “We disagree with Lord Singh and don’t recognise his characterisation of ‘Thought for the Day’.

      The Daily Telegraph has an article on this (Saturday’s edition, foot of page 12) from which I’ve quoted only the last two paragraphs.

    I think I’ve been legally not paying the BBC tax since about 2003. At today’s rate that’s about £2 400 I’ve saved.

    I know it’s probably less than they paid to fly a helicopter over Cliff Richard’s house, but it is the only language the BBC understand.

    Everyone should do their bit to help I think.
