Weekend thread 26 October 2019

Not quite our last weekend before being EU free . And we need to get ready for the Far Left Biased BBC to laud the outgoing speaker with interviews and celebrations befitting such a ‘character’. In the meantime OFCOM – affiliated to the BBC – reports continuing erosion of ‘ the younger ‘ British engagement with BBC output . Nice to have good news .

    Oh yeah!
    I think the BBC has no business speculating who might have died on that lorry – never mind giving us an emotive script of what they might have texted to their parents as they died. Pure gutter press. I will be watching to see if they are correct with the identification.

    I’m not sure it was covered on the other thread but Guido on Twitter has a wonderful clip of our favourite – Diane Abbot – on breakfast TV today announcing that Kate Hoey is no longer a labour MP. Which was news to Ms Hoey .
    Clearly the shadow Home Secretary is not just ‘ unfamiliar ‘ with numbers but also ‘ unfamiliar ‘ who who and who is not an MP in her own Party .

    The gift that keeps on giving

    Also – the new reason for not having a General Election is because it’s cold because it’s winter .

    It is also unclear why this investigation has started now, or what prompted it.

      Despite the tragic death there is one thing the media is ignoring, that is the FACT that she died undertaking criminal activity to enter a country by criminal means in the hope of criminal enrichment.

      The fact the political elites have employed a light to non existant touch towards illegal immigrants has aided & abetted this criminality.

      They and the media have these migrants blood on their hands – and now the Gestapo arrests the hated Whites iin an effort to cover it up for them.

        Why doesn’t the British government issue an international warning that illegal migration to the UK is indeed illegal, dangerous, and contributes to international crime through smuggling gangs? The Australian government has always been happy to make this clear, but it’s almost as if the UK government doesn’t want to say this for some reason.

        It is somewhat mysterious when we are told that the price for a ‘ticket’ is around £30K. That is quite a substantial amount of money – certainly enough to start a business in Vietnam (although in some instances the economic migrants would have taken out loans for their passage). The prospects in the UK for illegal Vietnamese migrants are limited, typically working in high street ‘Nail bars’, tending Cannabis farms or being forced into prostitution. It is difficult to see how this benefits Britain, generates revenue for the Inland Revenue, or results in nothing more than indentured servitude for those who have illegally entered the country.

            So much about this does not add up, requiring sensible questions from media to politicians and civil servants when so far all of them are doing seem to be is trying to out emote one another.

            I ‘get’ that there is some awful ‘debt’ collection that may be involved in coyote slave running, but as others have pointed out the money earned even if a risky journey works is a pittance. That said, the policing and sentencing appears farcical. Maybe if it could be established these charmers used inappropriate pronouns?

            Also, while fear of capture can see caution in seeking help, surely imminent death trumps this? If cell reception can transmit last texts to relatives around the world, cannot cell tower information locally triangulate location if so directed?

            The whole thing smacks of another Alan, with a few cynical parents back home hoping for a payday from Western guilt reactions.

            Does not look good any any young girl in ‘Asia’ who has yet to be married off, and Ma and Pa take them for a outing to the chiller counter at the local Asda.

    Auntie Beeb is not just suffering memory loss in her old age (forgetting to report news accurately or even at all) but is now developing dimensia.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-47750425

    I do not wish to minimise the difficulties of this family or the horror of their situation but a room 18 feet wide is definitely not narrow. Judging from the photographs it appears almost twice as long as it is wide. Let’s say 1.5x or 18 x 27 which equals 486 square feet. There are people in the UK now, renting or owning apartments smaller than that!

    The BBC appear to be creating a ‘victim’ situation without due regard to facts. After all, we know we can trust the BBC. They tell us that every day on the web-site.

    What about women who take their children to a refuge in a small three bedroom semi-detached or terraced house where there may be four families in temporary residence?

    Barred windows? Not apparent in the photographs of the restored building.

    Awful harsh conditions? Er, maybe not that either, BBC. “However, the National Trust, which now owns the site, says some social historians view such shelters as similar to workhouses.”

    Hours spent rock-breaking or rope picking? ” “I used to spend hours with my little doll, looking out of those windows, thinking, ‘When is somebody going to come and take us away?’ ” and ” “My mum gave up. She didn’t care if she lived or died. She would either sit there being quiet, or cry.” ”

    The mother, dependent on alcohol and sleeping pills, was not forced to work. Not really true workhouse conditions then.

    I think anyone would be right to question the quality of the BBC’s work that has gone into this item. No wonder people are giving up on the BBC. It is time for the current DG, Tony Hall, to go and to take many of the senior staff, especially Editorial staff, with him.

      One of the issues the OFCOM report raised was transparency within the state broadcaster . This should include the selection of senior staff . Mr shall has admitted that he selects senior command which reflects himself without an objective selection procedure . When this happens every one down the chain knows what to say and do without a policy . It leads to the kind of group think we , here , suffer every day .

      They are big on diversity . But by following that line they diminish diversity in thought or expression . It can only be of the state approved type . Which is why viewers are reducing and people are going elsewhere .

      It won’t change and with a bit of luck we , and our sister sites like ‘ isthebbcbiased’ will contributed just a bit to the demise of the enemy.

    Hasn’t got much to do with the Beeb, though if I’m honest it’s a documentary that would probably never be shown on the BBC, I’ve just finished watching Walking with Destiny on Amazon Prime.

    It’s all about Churchill and his time when he came to office and up to the joining of the US into the war. It’s narrated by Sir Ben Kingsley and is an excellent piece for reminding myself of what a great man he was.

    It’s truly dis-heartening to watch how this once great country and it’s impressive leader fought off talk of appeasement and negotiation to stand solid and proud when all around us was collapsing. To think that the likes of Boris and May and all other spineless weasels in our parliament and establishment could think so little of this country and have such contempt for it, that they would sell us completely down the river, is just an outrage.

    What we for and what we endured to so readily capitulate breaks my heart and spirit.

      as it is forbidden to portray anything Allah created
      The Hadith has rules against creating idolatry
      “He who creates pictures in this world will be ordered to breathe life into them on the Day of Judgment, but he will be unable to do so.” Hadith, Sahih Muslim (818-875)
      So apart from when there is an overriding reason eg to teach medicine ..such images are very rare in Islamic countries.

      It talked about a “growing threat of far right terrorism”

      It failed to acknowledge that Guardianlalaland drives frustration that could lead to violence
      .. as Guardianlalaland  suppresses things like open debate and thus causes a build up of pressure.

      And I expect that HnH dressing up in their black face masks, some members openly violent and behaving like fascists .. drives actual real violent nationalists recruitment.

    The probable Bill Cash “No Deal” trap revealed, now that it is unavoidable:

    Labour says there wont be an Election unless “No Deal” is off the table. The French say they wont take “No Deal” off the table unless there is an Election. No Deal or no Election on Monday, we leave without a deal on Thursday. Get a Deal with or without an Election on Monday, but refuse to introduce legislation, we leave without a deal on Thursday. An Election without a Deal on Monday makes an extension certain, so Government refuses to amend the “Exit Day” in the Withdrawal Act 2018, Boris sends a fourth letter post dated 1st November, refusing to accept the extension, then the European Communities Act 1972 is repealed on 31st October, we leave without a deal. Boris wins a landslide because the Brexit Party is happy to only win in Labour areas, and then Boris legislates against any revenge by the judiciary trying to decide whether or not the way we left the EU was legal or not. Any dispute with the EU about membership ends at the end of the extension with Britain offering the EU a half price payment for the period of the extension. Britain is FREE.

      Let’s hope. But I think the continuing debacle in Parliament has shown many that our political system is, as is said, “Not fit for purpose”. If all goes as you suggest and Boris achieves a landslide, things will return, eventually, to their normal ‘comfy’ state. Personally, that’s what I don’t want. Things have to be uprooted and improved, starting with a Constitution.

      Wonderful Richard, perfect in fact-that should definitely be the result-if Boris Johnson has the guts we think or hope he has, then he should simply leave without a deal on Oct 31st-it will not, as many believe, be disasterous for the UK, only disasterous for those in the remain camp whose actions the voting public will eventually determine. Maybe just maybe those duplictous little S……., will all emigrate to the countries in the European Union-although I doubt that any will want them. For goodness sake lets bring back Capital Punishment and execute such traitors. Liberalism has gone too far.

    ‘David Milliband Thank you “ says the bee lady .

    I fumed . What is it about the state broadcaster that it goes to a citizen who now lives and works in America – being allowed to pontificate about UK politics . I’ve got more res gestae to drone on about brexit than he has .

        I think the state broadcaster would like to see Milliband senior back in UK politics – presumably being an mark2 version of Blair . That would explain his access to the radio waves despite holding no office and living in America . I wonder what his former constituency voted in the referendum ? I doubt he can remember where it is by now …

    Does anybody know if RTE the Irish Republic state TV
    broadcaster have an English women news sports reporter ?
    Maybe they do . I just find it a little strange that to hear about
    the latest news about the Rugby World Cup . It is presented
    on BBC by a lady with a strong Irish Republic brogue.
    Never mind that the BBC TV hardly ever shows top
    UK live men’s sport anymore. We even had TWO women
    sports reporters talking about the rugby this morning. Is that
    called positive discrimination? Diversity? Or has the BBC
    finally flipped its lid?

    TOADY Watch #1 – Back on the Chain Gang

    My BBC R4 fast ended at 7.57am this morning. I found that I could not listen for a full hour. Naughtie was absent, thankfully, but as it was Ladies Day (again!) at TOADY with Martha and Samira, one of them was forced to go and look at Lucian Freud in the nude. A man, with boots on, about to paint.

    The item ended with some typical BBC misandry, Lucian in the all-together wearing only his paint spattered boots notwithstanding.

    Next, there is another ‘arts’ item; a wimmin has composed a piece of music and there is a moan about wimmins rights and wimmins equality and wimmin being poor and wimmin being oppressed and wimmin being ignored (except in paintings) and wimmin being obstructed in life and wimmin being denied and wimmin being second-class and wimmin being downtrodden.

    Off switch activated in protest.

    That return to Radio4 didn’t last long.

      I’d like to say ‘welcome back’ but like you I can only take limited exposure to toady and state broadcaster output . After that my hair starts to fall out and all the signs of a fatal overdose are there .
      I cannot use the word ‘British ‘ in relation to the State Broadcaster – it would be a lie .

      I wonder is the MSM use the likes of milliband senior , Heseltine , Adonis ( less ) because they are reliable mouthpieces who everyone knows won’t say anything new or unacceptable to the editorial narrative .

      For an outfit which uses the word ‘diversity ‘ every minute it certainly lacks diversity of speaker or view . Weird that .

      As an aside – I’m still waiting to see a chinese type journo on the state broadcaster – they’ve got Africans and Pakistani types coming out their ears – even more than the average DFS advert but where’s the chinky ( is that allowed ?) declaration – I am not chinese or know anyone who is chinese . I do like sweet and sour chicken though ….

        Aah, Fed, thanks – you have explained the increasing number of brown(ish), grey and silver hairs stuck in my combs! Brilliant.

        Whilst becoming conscious and that potentially another day of exposure to Brexit, the BBC and the evil of the EU (How Mutti sleeps at night, knowing that she is directly responsible for 39 dead bodies in an artic container-trailer, I do not know.) was in front of me, I was thinking about making a plea via this web-site.

        Fed, you may need to moderate this para and the succeeding ones out. If you so choose, I go along with your decision.

        I would like to encourage everyone on this site – maybe never posting but just popping in to read what others put up – and who has a TV Licence, to cancel it today. Yes, this may require the hardship of giving up TV viewing. It may be difficult in large households and lead to a certain amount of angst but it can be done.

        I did it years ago – am over £2000 richer or less poor as a result – and only really miss it for a very few sporting events. Arts and culture and news is available in the millions on YouTube and similar on the Internet. There are box sets in your local charity shop if you need something to watch. Support your local library and read books instead.

        You cannot have an election. You may not get another EU Referendum. But you can vote with your feet about the BBC and its biases.

        Just give up telly. Don’t break the law. Don’t watch live TV. Don’t use iPlayer. Boycott the BBC.

        Just give up. You know it makes sense. 🙂

    TOADY Watch #2 – Miliband major Misleads and Misrepresents

    I was horrified at the lies spouted by David Miliband. (see FedUp2’s post above) I lost count. He did say one true thing, though, but I have forgotten what it was because I was righteously angry at his lies and was busy talking back at the radio and ‘elsewhere’. (Psalm 118v10-14, in modern translation, refers)

    It may come to me. Or I may have to do penance and listen again.

    Or our computer whizz and ace BBC watcher Stew may come to my rescue and tell me where I can get a transcript apart from the BBC themselves. I have a notion that some voice recognition software does the job these days and it is put up on a web-site somewhere on the interwebby. Is it done by BBC Watch?

    Switch on BBC News about 9:38 and within seconds they had a pro Muslim propaganda agenda to push.
    The sports presenter said “I love this video…. it shows a footballer who was shielded by other players on the other team when her hijab slipped. It showed remarkable sportsmanship. Even though the footage is 2 years old it has only just appeared on social media.”.

    The presenter omitted that the footballer was woman and also a Muslim. I guess in BBC-la-la-land every footballer is now female and all females are hijab wearing Muslims.

    With the clocks going back tonight it’s a nice boost for all the solar panels out there in getting an extra hours daylight.

    My take on Brexit is that we will eventually get a deal where both leavers and remainers are unhappy with it. It will be an awful deal, a compromise of sorts.
    Maybe that will lead to a Brexit Party government but more likely we will grudgingly just get on with life and those at the top will keep their power over us.
    Maybe we will get a real leader who will get rid of the lot of them.

    I heard on the radio that the driver of the 39 is being held on some murder charge but I thought when he picked the container up they were all already dead so how does that work. Was he the driver when the container was in Europe picking these people up?

    Does anyone see any parallels with all those people fleeing the eu and trying to escape to the UK and the Berlin Wall with people fleeing communism and trying to escape to the (then eu) free Europe.

        An aside – my next door neighbour is a switched on 90 something . She is a life long Labour Party suppprter . She remembers Corbyn and Tony Benn standing on the same stage slagging off the anti democratic EEC . Today she said to me “ Labour ? Never again “ which shocked me .

        I wonder if the Labour high command know how toxic Corbyn is in election terms and can’t get rid of him – hence the message of ‘ no election ‘.

It’s all very well blaming the traffickers but they know they will have a very high success rate because hardly anyone is sent back.

      Mo the lorry driver patently did not murder the 39. The police are using a possible murder charge to make him talk. However, he is from Armagh, and touts do not last long over there, so I suspect he will keep his mouth shut. All he did was pick up a trailer.

      As to who the people in Armagh who are behind this operation might be, well, as Gerry Adams once said: “They haven’t gone away you know”. How right he was.

        Dear Sir
        Thank you for your recent enquiry about Sky Store. I note from your call that you describe yourself as White; I am pleased to confirm that we do not want your business. As you may be aware, White people only make up a tiny 85% of the UK population, whereas Black people make up a huge 3.1%. It is therefore just business sense to concentrate on this small demographic, rather than try to appeal to as many people as possible.
        Besides Sky Store, we have some other companies that you may wish to avoid including Sky TV, Sky Broadband, Sky Mobile and NOW TV. Additionally, you may not know but our parent company is Comcast, who acquired us last year and who are proud to have won the ‘Worst company in America’ award in 2014 (in fact, they also won it in 2010). Some of their brands include Universal Pictures, NBC, the Golf Channel and Dreamworks Animation, so please free to avoid them, too.
        Yours sincerely
        Head of Diversity and Great Replacement Marketing
        P.S. Have you tried Sky News recently? It is a leading supplier of False News and if you like the BBC and CNN you’ll feel really at home.

    We think the best way to stop Brexit is to have a people’s vote so that the people can decide whether they still want to go ahead with it.

    The LibDem woman inadvertently made her party’s position crystal clear: if the vote in another referendum is to Remain we’ll endorse it; if the vote is to leave, we’ll simply do everything we can to frustrate and overturn that democratic decision.

    How do these people sleep at night?

    Even then he would be wrong: Purbeck is jus’ oop t’road. Then there’s Thanet and probably a few more besides within our Sceptred Isle a.k.a. the UK. Oh dear! The BBC do not do well with geography these days. How do they cope with outside broadcasts? SatNav on their iPhones, I guess.

If so, there’s another one that Chris Mason missed and even closer by than Purbeck. In fact that area of coast is littered with mainland islands.

        It’s a moot point whether Brownsea Island (off Poole) is a mainland island, like Thanet, or more sort of offshore like the Isles of Wight and Sheppey. Buried deep in the little grey cells of Snuffy is the fact that there might be an inland island, somewhere in Wiltshire or Gloucestershire or similar but then not a lot of people know that, so Chris Mason might be excused on that one.

        Perhaps what Mason was trying to say was “England is a green and pleasant land and so is the rest of the UK.” but his Inner Beeboid was forbidding an introduction like that, hence the alternative; the mangled geography that actually came out of his mouth.

        On the other hand, perhaps the programme intro was written for him by one of the Portsmouth Yooni students, doing a bit of BBC work experience. That would definitely explain it.

    It’s all about the ‘rise of the Right’ worldwide.
    Turns out the Norwegians are oppressing the Sami.
    And the Swedes are actually Nazis. OOOOOOH, the Swedes are bad!
    And the Danes a bunch of colonisers.
    So far the Finns have got away with it, apparently.
    BBC propaganda, big-time.

    At least David Lammy watches still, albeit in the chamber, on the taxpayer’s dime.

    But he’s no younger than Femi. And Femi is not young.

    More absolute crap Brexit hysteria via the BBC.

    “Doubts grow over UK environment protection post-Brexit”

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-50192337

    Apparently come Brexit the UK is going to trash all the environmental standards currently forced on us by the EU by heavy fines so look forward to the return of smog, green rivers etc.

    The BBC depict a smoke laden cityscape to ram home the point complete with an nasty post-production glowing orange overlay….

    The report written by Roger Harrabin, the BBC’s top environmental guy who seems to have spent his entire career flying around with is BBC team to just about every country in the World to get his stories in!

    They will try anything!!!

    A while back StewGreen explained how to get a YouTube transcript of a video: click on the 3 dots below it and take it from there. Here’s Fiona Bruce interrupting the LIbDem woman in full flow, her interjection in bold:

    …were gonna be able to wait see what the European Union say hopefully we will get a three-month extension and then what were they lived in tea I think that’s above my pay grade.

    Here’s that section of the video

    Having listened to it again a few times I finally realised Bruce was asking, And then what will the LIbDems say?

    I can understand an automatic transcript having difficulty with LibDems but the rest is ridiculous. Everyone on that panel speaks more clearly and effectively than Bruce and she’s running the show?!.

    Listening to Women’s Hour on R4 they rolled on some teachers who had been to some sort of environmental specialist training academy where they apparently are taught how best to introduce “climate change” issues to schoolchildren.

    Much talk about children getting more fearful about the future etc.

    Not long before the speakers revealed they were pretty much activists working to put questions and beliefs in kids minds that were not there before.

    It became evident pretty quickly that the training program was actually intended to denigrate all the usual suspects, Dairy, Farming, Meat etc. etc. etc.

    One teacher even described a walk around the town where the kids were encouraged to count who was putting washing on the line, who had solar panels etc.

    This is what is making the kids fearful, get them young and recruited to swallow the bilge from the bunch of crazies who pump out this garbage – get ’em scared and you can control them in fact.

    It seems more and more schools are re-inventing themselves as political indoctrination training grounds as more and more of these fanatical “teachers” spread their warped opinions and beliefs disguised as education.

    This smacks of George Orwell-ism and is a very dangerous and disgusting trend in my opinion.

    They are children teachers! Remember Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, Sports? This is what the children need! Give them the teaching they need to best make their way in the World and then allow them to come to their own conclusions about the future as they become adults.

    Let them grow up normally without trying to blackmail them into your blinkered, fascist ways of thinking by scaring the shit out of them.

    The BBC doing what it does best for it’s chosen ones yet again!

      Nothing is going to change. This nonsense will either burn itself out in the fullness of time, or we will be stuck with it, to our ultimate misfortune.

      Everything is on the change, from politics downwards, for the worse. We seem unable to halt the process, or indeed, do anything about it at all. The lessons will be learned, eventually, come the next extended cold period, by which time it’ll be too late to say “told you so” (assuming there are any of us left to make that observation).

      Our lives are screwed, and we’ve allowed it to happen. The very people and organisations which should support the truth, and the situation most beneficial for everyone, are agin us, because that’s what they do. Doom and gloom predictions, even when most of us can see that in the short term, the forecast catastrophes just don’t materialise.

      The young (and their mentors) appear to have lost the ability to think critically, and merely follow an agenda into an inevitable cul-de-sac.

      We’ve watched this happening over recent years, and chosen, largely, to keep schtum.

      To our cost.

      digg… The Greens are playing a long game here .they are not interested in older people who can think independently . Older people are there as the scapegoat .. Capture the minds of children and they win. That’s what all totalitarians do and that is what is going on apace now .

        Swelter, quite correct. The Communists did it. The National Socialists did it. One or both of those groups went to hide within the Green Movement when the Berlin Wall came down.

        Very useful cover.

        They have sure fooled the BBC.

    Before Strictly started the Beeb aired a trailer for Lord Boaty’s Seven Worlds, One Planet. The clip showed a seal pursuing a penguin through ice-laden waters. “The seal appears to be toying with the penguin. . .” The clip concludes with the “exhausted” penguin facing the seal on an ice floe.
    Oh, eff off BBC – if this chase were filmed in real time it would have required the co-ordination of about five cameras, including surface, underwater and aerial/drone cameras.
    The dumb broad announcer drivels, “Oh what’s going to happen to the penguin? Find out tomorrow. . .” Well I won’t be ‘cos I don’t watch these animal snuff movies. And if you think that’s a harsh judgement on these highly-praised flagship programmes, you’ve never had a conversation with some of the types who enjoy watching the deaths depicted in them.

    Congratulations to England’s rugby team on their win.
    The best team won !
    If we in the ‘West’ can pull it off tomorrow things would look good for a cracking World Cup final ?

      Good wishes to Wales for a Brexit final and a Brexit finale, taffman.

      The BBC are so fond of telling lies about the EU Referendum vote, saying Northern Ireland and Scotland voted to remain when they did not, in truth, because it was counted as a UK wide vote, not one counted on a constituency or national basis. It would be great to have an England & Wales success story on Monday’s front pages. And a Brexit success story filling the Friday and next weekend’s newspapers, too.

      Hopefully, Bojo has been inspired by the rugby.
