Weekend Thread 12 October 2019

Is the watered down version of Brexit coming ? The biased state broadcaster continues to run out Project Fear each day , the Brexit Party is marginalised and Brexit supporters – if they get onto the State Broadcaster – are outnumbered or shut down .
The crucial time is coming – again . Meanwhile hysterical planet savers get a free pass as they screw up other people’s’ lives .

      .. with the strange BBC photo which shows the apparent white legs but obscures the guys black face which is on Twitter videos
      page 4 Friday 9am to 10pm
      page 3 started 2pm Thursday
      – info about how British Airways security are so inept they fail to stop a blind drug cheating para-olympian from climbing on top of a plane
      .. and there was this about British journos rigging reporting


      • Fedup2 says:

        Stew – thanks
        – in fact – sad me – there isn’t any British Airways at London city where the idiot got onto the plane . They are all care free agency staff . It’s my local airport and the difference in standards is huge .

        In a real world that bloke would be doing a year – paid for by himself – and charged the cost of the delay which would be tens of thousands . Instead he ll get a ‘ caution ‘ or free pass…

    Does this sound familiar?

    Majed Hassan Ashoor, the First Secretary at the Saudi Arabian embassy in New Delhi, was accused in 2015 of raping two Nepalese maids under his employment for over three months. Indian Police eventually rescued the women, who said the man would constantly bring over guests, seven or eight at a time, and they would all take turns raping the women. Doctors examined the women after police rescued them and found infections, bruises, and other damage to sensitive areas, corroborating their accounts.

    No arrests have been made, with the Saudi Embassy claiming the reports are false and condemning the Indian government for raiding the diplomatic property to rescue the women. Amid all these events, the diplomat quickly fled to the safety of home.


    • vlad says:

      Well surprise surprise.
      It’s going on all over the Middle East and, as this case shows, in embassies elsewhere. And of course in our very own Londonistan where the occasional story of Arabs abusing domestic workers (slaves) makes the news, quickly hushed up by Al-beeb who only take offence at slavery when it’s white on black in the distant past, never brown (muslim) on brown, in the present.


    • vlad says:

      I suppose if your ‘religion’ (I use the term loosely) tells you that infidel women are the lowest of the low and deserving nothing but contempt, and if your ‘prophet’ himself bought, sold, captured, owned slaves, and in at least one case had sex with one; and if the tradition continues even into the present, then they’re fair game and why not use them for pleasure?


      – “During Muhammad’s jihad on the Jews of Khaybar, he took for himself from among the spoils of war one young woman, a teenager, Safiya bint Huyay, after hearing of her beauty. (Earlier the prophet had bestowed her on another Muslim jihadi, but when rumor of her beauty reached him, the prophet reneged and took her for himself.)

      Muhammad “married” Safiya hours after he had her husband, Kinana, tortured to death in order to reveal hidden treasure. And before this, the prophet’s jihadis slaughtered Safiya’s father and brothers.

      …After the death of Muhammad, Safiya confessed that “Of all men, I hated the prophet the most—for he killed my husband, my brother, and my father,” before “marrying” (or, less euphemistically, raping) her. ” –

      Warfare, slavery, rape, torture and murder. What a lovely religion of peace.

    Incredible BBC show From 2 weeks ago
    “How have we been doing on reporting environment ?”
    Just listen and tell me if it’s not that Harra wrote something down for his Mum
    so she could call in and read it out


  5. Nibor says:

    Al Beeb and the swamp/ blob still going on about lorries being held up at Dover and Calais .
    Why don’t they ask the respective organisations , the Road Haulage Association ( RHA ) and the Freight Transport Association ( FTA) what percentage of their members go abroad ? The answer could be a round figure ; 0 .
    Why don’t they report that the Polish equivalent of the RHA met the Calais authorities who assured them their trucks , about 40% of cross channel traffic , would not be affected ?
    That even the FTA , the most staid , orthodox and predictable of organisations has said delays would be minimal . That’s equivalent to the Amish abandoning horse and carts for a Tesla .
    Well anyway BBC , well done in ignoring the loss of jobs and businesses , as well as a way of life every bit as communal as coal mining villages, but you now take an interest when Brits aren’t involved . But then , that was working class people , it’s far more important to worry about universities and lecturers not
    earning enough .
    A bit like the Labour Party . Power to the people after power to the professors .

    BBC Radio. Is it me? or has BBC radio deteriorated to such an extent its become a parody of itself. I must admit I have fled BBC radio to Classic FM and LBC and I put up with the Ads even though I find them annoying its a fair swop for good content. When I tune into BBC radio its stuck in a time warp of repetition and ‘set’ pieces where if its ‘comedy ‘ – you know where its going. Drama is all about ‘victims’ dilemma or middle class vexation on the Archers on the new queer in town. And then there is the persons of colour, even on the radio, the sheer ignorance of presenters shine though completely swamping whatever topic with stupid interrupts and ‘me-too’ comments, as if we were all in the same ‘loop’ of victim-hood or accusation ‘commentary’, which is tiring, argumentative and largely pointlessness. Only the BBC has the time and money to prop up a bad radio show. Even Radio 3 which has plummeted to new depths of ‘World music’ and frankly obscure ‘folksy’ style ‘musa’k (of African dirge) is enough to argue that the BBC has lost the entire plot of running any radio stations in this country. I would argue that post BREXIT we rid the BBC of its burden. They can keep the SOUNDS network app or whatever they want to call it. In doing so all the radio stations can be privatised and sold off to REAL people (Community radio is my favourite) who are passionate about proper local radio and provide much more choice, even if its with some Ad breaks. At least its NOT a demand for a RADIO license linked to a TV license as we now have via a private debt collector. The BBC cannot go on like this despising us all – and charging us all top money for a pathetic patchwork of ‘right-on-lefties’ propaganda and hopeless batch commentators who command bank breaking salaries, ‘because they’re worth it’ as they say so. Frankly they’re not worth much to begin with and paying them more does not improve the output. The BBC is mired in misfortune of its own making. Only deaf die-hards listen to the BBC now, I was one once. I feel so much better turning anything BBC orientated OFF. And that includes TV. It really is the best advice I can give to children protesting on the streets in London huddled over the radio tuned to the BBC whilst eating Macdonald’s and chips thinking they are saving the planet. I am having to write this as my Car Radio is stuck on BBC Radio 1, 2, 3 and 4 (only) and I cannot turn to any other stations!!! and its driving me mad if I don’t just turn the thing OFF. Boy do we need a better alternative to the BBC. We have the technology to provide hundreds of far better stations with commercial operators that have proved over the years, they can do it better, cheaper and offer a choice.


    • RobRoy says:

      Phil, I’ve recently changed cars and now have a radio that can tune into Talk Radio. It’s like a breath of fresh air to listen to a station that doesn’t have an agenda. You get to hear both sides of the argument and don’t have to put up with endless crap. And JHB is a joy to listen to in the morning.

      I used to play a game with my daughter. I’d tune into R4 (or R5), and see how long before we heard the words ‘muslim’, ‘trans’, ‘LGBT’ etc. And surprise, surprise, it would usually be less than a minute or two!

      And when my wife said ‘but you have to put up with the ads’ (although not with JHB), I simply pointed out, how many times do you hear repeated trailers on BBC radio for the same old trash they churn out – about the same amount of time as Talk Radio’s ads!


      • StewGreen says:

        If you listen to TalkRadio on listenAgain then you can fast forward the ads
        JHB is currently ad-free


      • Fedup2 says:

        As I was reading your comment I was realising just how quickly the state broadcaster changed from its original purpose to just a propaganda machine .

        I suppose the propaganda part of those media studies courses must be full up and the ‘unbiased lectures/tutorials ‘ empty .

      An example of the constant left wing crap being spouted by BBC radio.
      I work at night and during the shift I have to move vans and lorries for loading and am only in them for a minute or so at a time.The radios are tuned in to various stations (Radio 2 seems to be the drivers favorite) The other week van one Radio 1 at some festival interviewing a stall holder.What are you selling here? Answer vegan cakes.Vehicle two Radio 5 Live Trump bashing.Lorry three Radio 4 World Service,racism towards black people.The other vehicles were either music or Talksport so at least I was safe from propaganda there.For me it just about summed up BBC Radio.Three brief snapshots of their output and three items well left of centre.


  7. Nibor says:

    BBC ,

    When you talk about loss of jobs ” due to Brexit ” , is that British loss of jobs or foreign loss of jobs ? Will the EU nationals who lose their jobs go home or stay here and go on the dole ? ( Or pretend to stay here , claim for everything but live in Poland , Romania etc ?)

        • john in cheshire says:

          The level playing field slopes one way – in the direction of the EU. The contract to produce our new passports is one glaring example.

          Dancing Terry May has much to answer for.

          Not to forget the UN ‘compact’ on migration that she hurriedly signed despite a petition of over a million signatories telling her not to do so.

    A taste of how inferior the BBC is to other channels:

    Saturdays TV:
    (1) 1pm: Channel 235: Chairman of the Brexit Party, Richard Tice, talks about the merits of “No Deal“ at the Oxford Union. While on the BBC there is a program about Takeaways.
    (2) 6.50pm: Channel 5: Secrets of Underground Britain: Rob Bell visit’s the Yorkshire Dales: On the BBC lots of homosexuals and ethnics can be seen dancing on the dance floor.
    (3) 8pm: Channel 4: Great British Car Journeys: Christopher Timothy and Peter Davison travel from Scarborough to the Yorkshire Dales in a Morgan. On the BBC lots of homosexuals and ethnics can still be seen dancing on the dance floor.
    (4) 9pm: Channel 5: Great Warships: The development of the Aircraft Carrier by Britain from World War One, up till the Ark Royal in World War Two. The BBC has a Black in charge of a bunch of Communist Education Yobs, or what the BBC calls com-ed-y.

  12. Richard Pinder says:

    Has there ever been a case in History were those trying to unite Europe have ever respected democracy. No, Freedom has only come from those who are prepared to fight for it.

    This is how Quisling (Bercow) collaborates with the Germans.

    Quisling (Bercow) visits the studios of the NBC (BBC) and makes a radio broadcast proclaiming himself Prime Minister and ordering all resistance to halt at once. The next day, the German ambassador demands that the Monarch formally appoints Quisling (Bercow) as Prime Minister. The Monarch stalls for time, telling the ambassador that a Monarch could not make political decisions on their own authority. At a Cabinet meeting later that night, the Monarch says, I can not in good conscience appoint Quisling (Bercow) as Prime Minister, because the people have no confidence in him. The Monarch states that they would abdicate rather than appoint a government headed by that pro-German collaborator and traitor, Quisling (Bercow). Quisling (Bercow) tries to have the Cabinet arrested, but the officer he instructed to carry out the arrest ignores the warrant and the Monarch and the Cabinet escape to freedom in Britain (Canada). Quisling’s (Bercows) “National Government” puppet regime collaborates with the Germans for five years, but the German attempt to unite Europe fails as the Canadians with a Free British Army, the Russians and Americans free Europe. Quisling (Bercow) is executed by firing squad. Other Nazi (Remainer) collaborators, as well as Germans accused of war crimes, are also arrested and punished.


    • The General says:

      Very interesting but I am not sure that the ‘officer’ charged by Burcow to arrest the Cabinet and Monarch would ignore it and would in fact carry it out.


  13. Oaknash says:

    FE2 – “Is a watered down version of Brexit coming?”

    Very likely – my reasons are this. Like many here I was very surprised when the BBC broadcast “Brexit: Behind Closed Doors” I wondered at the time was our proven treacherous state broadcaster celebrating the EU “victory” too early with a bit of “tory bashing” thrown in – well maybe.

    What was for sure it certainly did not portray the EU in a good light and when we got to the bit with the “evil” Verhofstadt saying words to the effect “With ze Irish backstop ve haf finally turned zem into a colony – ha ha ha ha ha ha.” All he needed was a white cat to stroke.

    This got me thinking (dangerous) – what it neatly did was get everyone concentrating on the “backstop” rather than the rest of Mays “giveaway deal”

    My prediction is that the the backstop is a sacrificial lamb, a straw man, a stage, so the politicians can act out a “negotiation panto” for our own benefit.

    At the end of the day Boris will win his “battle”, pull his rabbit out of the hat . With the tabloids proclaiming “victory” every one goes home, except its not.

    We will still be under control of EU courts, we will still have little fishing industry of our own and of course our armed forces will be slowly be absorbed into the “European Defense Force” not even to mention the small matter of 39 billion quid, plus all the other “advantages” of EU domination that have been hidden in the small print except now we havnt even got a voice anymore, which is what most of our politicians want as well as the EU.

    The only winners will be the elite, because with the complicity of the BBC and the politicians, they would have pulled off another blinder – Brino rules OK and we can all go back to “knowing our place”

    I pray I am wrong about this, but as with everything Aunty does it is for a reason. And something about this whole weaponisation of the backstop stinks to high heaven.

    OK thats enough – tin foil hat going back into its box, or maybe it should stay out, after-all we are in very strange times

        How low has the bbc sunk?

        They churn out this gush nonsense (AN exempted) and Talk Radio actually holds the queue of bbc green room green loons to account.

        Not just JHB but a bunch of them taking the utter gibber from these tools apart rather than offering XR a national pulpit as the bbc does.

        Monbiot conceding the proles may be allowed one flight a year….

        Who is going to make this plane for him, Olivia and Benedict? Who is going to fuel it? Fly it? Book their first class seat….. Thomas Cook?

        It reminds me of the flooding a few years back when Tewksbury was resupplied with bottled water using 4x4s. You cannot make one in a day… ask Faisal.

        Imagine the country with just no travel manufacturing, no travel services, no tourists… and only sanctimonious greens and beeboids in their bunker.

  17. Doublethinker says:

    So it looks like some form of Brexit deal is going to agreed. How far this is from a clean break remains to be seen over the coming months and years because the further away it is more heavily disguised it will be for Britush audiences. If there are any concessions from the EU and the Irish tea shop the equal and opposite will be true. The reaction of the DUP on Irish issues and of the ERG on the rest will be indicative. We know that Nigel will be keen to point out any divergence from a clean break.
    But the question for us on this site is how can the behaviour of the BBC over the past three and a half years be exploited to damage them as much as possible? Surely their extreme pro Remain bias has infuriated millions of LF payers whose anger can be turned against the BBC. A nation wide LF payers strike is the best to show the government and the overmighty corporation that we have had enough and that it is time to either make the BBC a subscription only service or better sell if off in numerous small packets to the private sector. Perhaps if Nigel has the time he could be persuaded to lead such a national campaign. Smashing the BBC will be as important a national service as was freeing us, hopefully , from the yoke of Brussels.


    • Fedup2 says:

      On your second paragraph I fear that there won’t be much protest about either the sell out or the conduct of the state broadcaster by grown ups . It will be that collective shrug of the shoulders the British do as opposed to the kind of stuff regularly happening in down town Francistan .

      Next Saturday the traitors are due to sit and discuss what boris has come back with . They’ll do some steam roller job with legislation helpfully drafted by the French government /EU using Traitor Grieve as their tool . By the following Monday it will be rubber stamped again by the ‘reforming’ chamber .

      I suspect it will be an act notifying the EU that since they cannot agree on any deal/ sellout the only option is to withdraw A50 on the 31st October .
      Bojo will be able to do nothing about it . The queen will sit in her counting house counting all her money . No vote of confidence – no second referendum – no general election until 2022 – unless of course the traitors vote to amend the Fixed Term Act and extend even further ….


      • Doublethinker says:

        I doubt that A50 will be revoked. More likely an agreement will be reached which lies somewhere between May’s abject surrender and a clean break, perhaps nearer to the former than the latter. But Exactly where on that spectrum the deal actually is will, as I say above, take some time to work out , as the politicians will be mostly be trying to make a show of accepting a workable compromise , working together etc etc and nor rubbing each other’s noses in it.


        • Fedup2 says:

          I used to think the same about a50 withdrawal but I don’t think anything is beyond the traitors. After all it’s anti democrat party policy now . Bercow will pull a face , JRM will strike a weird pose and the SNP will ‘ talk for Scotland’

          The state broadcaster will concentrate on whether the PM had sexual intercourse with a woman when when he is going to resign and the country can now ‘ put it all behind us and come together ‘. “Now the weather – and it looks like more rain stav?”

    The BBC web-site (Home Page and News Page) is now just like or even worse than a tabloid newspaper, a sort of low budget Daily Star.

    Truly unappealing.


    • Fedup2 says:

      I wanted an update on the rugby so switched on just before the sport . The ‘nacher notes ‘ nonsense had a bloke from Norfolk talking about the marsh harrier . Common as muck he said . Top of the food chain he said . It means the eco system is working ‘fine’ he says .
      As he spoke thousands of 16 year old climate girls broke down in tears ( again ) as they realised that the world might not end in 10 years as advertised but might face a longer future of dire state broadcasting output and no free TV licence

    Listen to the BBC on R4 or read the web-site and you will find that the UK car industry is in trouble because of Brexit.

    Surprise, surprise! The truth is somewhat different.

    Don’t need to watch the video clip, it is all there in the second paragraph alongside the photo: people in Paris (and perhaps all over France?) are not buying cars any more. The politicians have killed the golden goose.

    Item #3

    It does appear that Bojo has bungled.

    His Rush of Prorogation Blood to the Head has forced him into a sell-out and BRINO – a BRexit In Name Only. The BBC try, rather feebly compared to their usual efforts, to tease out the details but Nicky Morgan (who wobbles between pro-Brexit and pro-Remain) who is in charge at the Ministry of Fun, is giving nothing away.

    We will need a lot of spending by the Ministry of Fun to placate enraged democrats in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Mishal asked where are the latest £s of Bojo’s flashing of cash is going. None to the BBC, apparently, to make up for funding those needy over-75s.

    You hear a note of disappointment in Mishal’s voice.

  25. Tabs says:

    BBC Breakfast news just now. Some bloke in Vienna trying to run a marathon in under 2 hours. Clock in the corner showed 1h55m and green to show he is on target to break the record by 9 seconds.

    Naga Munchetty says (in a nasally voice), “you can see he is on target to break 2 hours by 9 seconds so he will cross the line at 1 hour 59 minutes and 50 seconds”. Errrr…. obviously Naga wasn’t chosen for her maths skills.

    A minute later they bring in some other woman “expert” who waffles on about breaking records of human endurance, “look at him go, we must be in the last 15 to 20 minutes of his race now”. Errr no he is in the last 2 minutes at this point.

    Item #4

    It was actually the first item I heard on TOADY this a.m.. Poland is having a General Election. The current governing Party is expected to win. They are – implied but dare not speak it out loud – Euro-sceptic/anti-EU.

    The BBC therefore have to brand them as ‘populist’, the slur of choice in Broadcasting House.

    Following PayPal’s actions your membership has been cancelled automatically. No payments from 8am on the 8th October have been or will be taken.”

      Will anyone make the connection between low average pay in ‘blighted’ coastal towns and the seasonal nature of the work available?
      And will anyone have the temerity to point out this salient fact for the towering intellect that is J. Corbyn?

        Quite a few unemployed fishermen in Amber Rudd’s constituency.

        Unfortunately, the dear old place was swamped with DHSS ‘visitors’ years ago, and they never left.

        Corbyn fits in very well there, but don’t make him stay too long please.


        • BRISSLES says:

          Seasonal work aside, coastal towns have always suffered from low pay. My home area is the Isle of Thanet (or Ramsgit and Margit as the London day ‘tourists’ would say), and one of the better paying jobs 60 odd years ago was at the coal face of the local Colliery ! On leaving school in ’65 I went into the ‘typing pool’ (remember those ?) of the American giant Pfizer who had a huge presence in that area, and one of the better payers. Sadly no longer there.
          Over the years the only thing that has risen is property prices, pushed up by 2nd home owners and speculators who are seeing a boom in asylum seeker and Eastern European tenants.

    Reagan, who comes first, apparently doesn’t know the difference between Iran and Israel, will be done in for the ‘Contra’ affair. All leading up to beeb hated US Republican enemy number one, Guess Who?
    Noticed last night that R4 news at ten ( Coomarasami, James, very British, attended Cambridge, don’t you know) has new targets: Vox, the ‘extreme right’ party in Spain, got a blast for questioning illegal immigration into Europe by way of ‘sea rescues’. Part two on Mediterranean ‘rescuers’ (i.e. people smugglers) on R4, which clearly fancies that anyone who wants to sail from Morroco to europe should be left to do so, with help.
    A Washington Post (Lefty) chappie was brought on to tell us just how bad Trump was. Kumarasami featured a clip of Trump’s Minneapolis speech, but not about Hunter Biden, who’s offenses the beeb are ignoring, even though Trump spelled them out in detail. One that was designed/edited to be a smear of the President. Beeb are entirely one-sided: there is no mention of Killary and Uranium One, no mention of the questionable Bidens, it’s all about trying to get Trump impeached.
    Coomarasami is about as impartial as Ghengis Khan.

    I see the media apologist mechanism has kicked in with regard to the Arndale Shopping Centre stabbings, or as I heard the BBC reporter on Toady this morning describe it as “a man lunging out with a knife at shoppers”.
    Then these BBC reports were spotted:

    The BBC are in full Brexit mode on it’s radio and television channels and for some reason the Arndale ‘lungings’ seemed to have been forgotten. It’s amazing that the MSM believe that the public are so gullible.

    I’ve devised a bingo game to assist BBC and Sky News reporters when reporting forthcoming Islamic terrorist attacks.


    I have to admit I’m not sure if what happened at Arndale was an Islamic terrorist attack as the shopping centre has been plagued with violent and anti-social behaviour by gangs of black youths over the last couple of weeks, which the BBC has decided not to report.
    Still, if the MSM believe that incidents like this will be forgotten by not reporting them, then good for them.

    Well, that’s a relief. I’m referring to the gentleman who went on the stabbing spree yesterday in a Manchester shopping centre.
    Now be honest. I’m betting a few of you suspected that a certain lunatic, fringe religion might have been behind this heinous action. Thank Allah you were wrong. The poor bloke has “mental health issues.” Phew…and there was me fretting!
    Of course we’ve heard it all before…in fact virtually every time one of these creatures goes ballistic, both metaphorically and literally, we’re confronted the same litany of pathetic excuses. We could write them ourselves.
    I wonder what other misleading camouflage they’re going to come out with. A history of drug abuse… Comes from a broken family… A loner. The one thing they will try to avoid mentioning is…
    Unfortunately for the authorities we’ve now all seen the hideous brute and it’s going to be rather difficult to pass him off…
    As a Norwegian.

      The only person I can think of with genuine mental health issues is Thomas Mair.

      People now just dismiss all this ‘mental health, Norwegian, asian, man, ntdwi rubbish now anyway. They’ve lied so much we just don’t believe them.


    • Emmanuel Goldstein says:

      The only person I can think of with genuine mental health issues is Thomas Mair although the bbbc and Remainstream media had him down as a nazi White supremecist within minutes. Even somebody a few streets away heard him say “Britain first” although he denies this (they still repeat the lie though)

      Em the Guardian has a witness
      “He was pointing at the police and Arndale workers,”
      adding that he claimed he was being targeted because of his race and referred to himself using the N-word

      I’ve not seen an eye witness quoting anything about Allah

      That all pointsto early tweet I saw saying he was a guy who’d had an altercation with security a few days earlier

      There is this also
      “We were upstairs when we saw a woman sitting down with her bags around
      “A man tried to pick up a bag but she resisted and he stabbed her in the shoulder with a foot-long knife.

      The man looked like he was homeless.
      He looked very scared when he stabbed her.
      It didn’t look like a targeted attack”

    It’s looking more and more like we will be getting May’s dreadful wa with a bit of lipstick on it.

    Does anyone know how much Canada or Japan have to pay the eu to get their trade deal and are the eu allowed free access to all of Japan’s fish.

    Is there any other nation who has the same ‘deal’ as we are supposed to be getting and if yes, how much must they pay the eu for this deal. (Rhetorical)

    They have a good trade model. Imagine a car dealer who says you must pay him £3,000 if you want to enter his showroom to buy a car. Do you think anyone would be stupid enough to go ahead with that.
    Of course, then, the customer says to the dealer “I am going to buy a car and will pay you whatever you want for it, no ifs, no buts”

    We really do have world class negotiators working for us in the UK.

    11:30 Sopel was on FooC did he resist agenda pushing ?
    Look at the title
    #1 ‘Hey this Trump he’s in trouble … impeachment blah, blah

    then Sopel changes tack ‘they won’t get the votes and is really weird how Bidens son earnt $50K/month for nothing
    … but hey now his Syrian Kurd decision, even Fox doesn’t like that..blagh blah’
    A later guy did a piece about Cambodian
    farmers being crowded out by immigrant Chinese ‘And there life is hard , this weather caused by CLIMATE CHANGE’


    • fakenewswatcher says:

      Sopel doesn’t do news. Sopel has an agenda, and will slot in whatever fits his narrative. President Trump will remain his No1 target, as he has been for 3 years+ now.

    11:00am I dipped into the Politics prog and the Westminster loon politicians were trying to out-green each other
    The presenter was from Huffpost
    He asked ” what can Extinction Rebellion achieve ?”

    Green Lord : Well XR is right , the gov hides that Air and Sea transport and not included in CO2 reduction stats. (actually good point)
    Oh wind/solar subsidy is nothing look at nuclear subsidies

    Green Tory : My gov is so great that energy is 34% renewables
    and windpower is the cheapest available power, so we won’t need to talk about subsidies

    Aaron Bastani calls him on on Twitter
    “A cheerleader for gvmt renewables policy conflates electricity for energy.
    Says renewables account for 34% of U.K. energy.

    Hear this repeatedly & journalists never pull it up.
    If you are ignorant on issue how can you inform public?


    Other R4 like Saturday Live , Loose Ends, BH will be agenda pushing and
    have guests who are 40-50% BAME

      NPC thinking “That Andrew Norfolk he bad man”
      “Muslims are always the victim”

      BTW the point is a brown family can care for a white/black child, but if they were firm believers in a dogma say Islam or Communism or XR etc.
      they’d be brainwashing the child

    🍶Bottle deposit scheme *
    ♻️ End to recycling postcode lottery

    Gov needs to tackle actual litter louts

    The environment bill “will set a framework of far-reaching, legally binding targets to reduce plastics, restore biodiversity, improve the quality of our water and… clean up our air”.

    for Boris Johnson’s new Environment Bill


    • Up2snuff says:

      Stew, that’s the way Boris operates. No clear thought out strategy in advance. Gobby, knee-jerk, spur-of-the-moment reactions to the media or current events or the Labour Party & its spokesperson.


  46. Despairada says:

    Any Questions Radio 4
    Initially mostly about ‘Brexit’, Deal, No Deal. No one ever mentions that only ‘No Deal’ truly gets us out of the EU. All the criticism is aimed at Boris who, apparently, only wanted No Deal to fend off Nigel Farage. The EU seems beyond criticism. If Jo Swainson achieves her dream of staying in the EU, she would need a really tight jumper to explain the noxious consequences for the UK of slinking back with tail between legs.
    Also lots of mention of ‘Daesh’ to avoid associating ‘Islamic’ with anything bad.
    Some criticism of XR’s methods but not of the underlying politics of global oppression to achieve the end of civilisation. Inevitable human caused climate change is a given for them all.


    • Up2snuff says:

      I’m staggered I managed to last all the way through Any Questions (another stacked Communist/Socialist/LeftLibby audience apart from a few brave souls to tried to applaud at one point) and Any Answers, which was pure XR propaganda from beginning to end.

      Anita Anand actually thanked one caller for ‘putting it so well’.

      Well, we already knew where the BBC were on this.

    Naturally it should not be implied, or even thought, that dropping the planned amnesty against prosecution for members of the armed forces from the Queen’s Speech has nothing whatever to do with any Brexit negotiations.

      I, trying to work out what a Queens speech is for – apart from killing off a couple of days for the traitors to waste in the run up to 31 October .

      Boris might as well have put the military protection bill into the speech because the numerous IRA supporters in the Labour Party would be bound to stop it .

      Same with other stuff which might be on a Conservative wish list – they might as well have thrown them all in as a taster for any potential General Election in the near of far future .

      It would be nice if they did something about care for those with dementia but overseas giveaways are more important .
