44 days of election bias thread

At last there may be change ( or a hung parliament with more madness). We must record the far left bias of the BBC with or without restrictions imposed by law on broadcasters to be
‘fair ‘. We all know how the BBC interprets fairness . Let’s drain the swamp .

      What did you expect? Seriously?

      The cowardly inept useless Tories don’t deserve to win an election. I honestly hope the Fascists beat them and then the Tories can hide in their expensive bunkers and cry.

      It’s like a team of athletes – lazy fat out of condition not caring if they win or lose as long as they keep their paychecks rolling in, watching the other side openly cheating and then being so idle as to not do anything about it.

      The Tory list of total idleness and incompetence is a long one.

      Failure:

      To deal with open BBC bias despite others continually crying out about it.

      To refer the acquisition of regional titles by Labour supporting Mirror group, meaning a Labour supporting regional press in virtually every town & city.

      To deal with the massive Pakistani Muslim voting fraud all over the country, almost always in favour of Labour.

      Allowing Labour to take control of the Police resulting in now in a politicised Police force uniterested in crime, campaigning for Labour. Only yesterday the Obersturmbahnfuhrer of GMP (Gestapo Manchester Police) was criticising the Tories overso called ‘austerity’

      To form any kind of alliance with the Brexit party which will split their vote

      Allowing mass immigration, at record high levels without even uttering a peep, in spite of election promises to reduce it. These migrant will vote for Labour and lose the Tories their marginal seats.

      Given the chance they have sided with Labour in attacking those people on their own side of politics, but in keeping with their cowardly nature, they have failed to attack Labour for their open Fascism / Nazism.

      I’m sure I’ve left some examples out, but a party like this simply does not deserve re-election – as many have said it needs to die.

    Whatever Boris and Cummings have got up their sleeves before November 1St it had better be good or it’s vote Nigel.

      I can sort of understand that these CINOs might be popular in their own constituencies and people there may vote against the Conservatives if they feel their favourite has been betrayed. However there is no way these anti-Brexit donuts will ever agree to a real Brexit so a mutually beneficial deal with Nigel is out of the question.

    These are really quite extraordinary circumstances. We’re facing the biggest decision in living political history.
    We simply must get rid of these treacherous Remainers. But how to vote…For a lot of us it’s going to be a bit of a conundrum.
    It seems (as far as I’m aware) that The Brexit Party is contemplating fielding a full list of candidates, potentially weakening the Tory vote. There’s no love lost…
    My gut inclination is to vote for The Brexit Party…
    However, my own MP, Crispin Blunt, has been pretty sound on Brexit. Actually he’s really solid. I disagree with him on all manner of other things, but this is the Brexit election. The only thing that matters. We must at least begin to “clear the swamp”.
    So, unless anyone here can offer sound reason why I should cast my preference elsewhere, he’ll probably get my X in the box.
    Anyway, after my miserable post let’s try to look on the bright side.
    What ever the result there’s bound to be some good news…
    The most objectionable, two faced gurning hypocrite in Parliament’s long history will be gone…

    What I cannot risk is a Corbyn government. I voted Brexit party at the EU elections, but not this time. However bad the deal is, what would the Corbyn McDonnell duo bring. The country would sink lower and what despair would they take us to before we were rescued. By that time our pensions would be worthless, our hospitals like Cuba and our currency worthless. Oranges and lemons as imports would be so expensive that they will be a distant memory and scurvy rampant. The only good thing would be nuts and avocados would be so expensive too that snowflake vegans would change their mind about meat. Except the only meat around would be from fluffy bunnies.

      Deborah, no one with more then 5 brain cells would vote Corbyn but he does have most of the immigrants who can vote. Labour needs to be wiped out in parliament and Boris and brexit party need to do a pact so that the leave alliance can remove most of those traitors from parliament. My mp is labour who voted against all his constituents wishes (it’s a leave area) and will try and do anything to stop brexit. He needs to go and the cons are not liked here so the cons need to not go against the BXT candidate so it doesn’t split the vote

        I think Boris has said he won’t do a deal with Farage unless he takes No Deal off the table. To me, Tories blocking no deal makes them unelectable. This always happens whenever there is a chance to elect something different. Too many people start belly-aching that the outside bet has no chance-therefore don’t vote for them.
        USA had the courage to elect Trump. It has to be Brexit Party. The same old Lib-Lab-Con has utterly failed us.

        Deborah, scurvy? I dread a Corbyn government as well but people lived on these islands long before we began to import citrus fruits. Scurvy was a problem for sailors who were at sea for months on end. Berries have vitamin C, Peas have V C. Srawberries, broccoli, sprouts, the humble potato, there won’t be scurvy. I don’t think there will be Corbyn either unless they rig the vote.

They think misguidedly that Labour will save them from losing their wonderful benefits and housing.

        This is the essence of ‘first past the post’. We can vote for whoever we believe in though there are always ‘wasted votes’. Under a PR system, like that applied to the European Parliament elections, the motivation for negative voting is removed.

        Oak,
        There isn’t a single party that will have even one MP after the GE that doesn’t as a minimum accept that continued migration is a necessary and perhaps good thing! Even Nigel has repeatedly said that he welcomes controlled migration exactly the same message that PP has given recently. There no chance at all that any current party will reverse the mass invasion process of the last thirty or forty years. No one in the UK is going to save us from Islamisation over the rest of the century. Our only hope, and I mean only hope , is that in the future President Trump in his second term and the Italians, Visegrad grouping and perhaps France manage to change the political weather and reassert the right of nations to determine their own path. Therefore buying time by keeping the Marxists out is the only sensible option and with FPTP that means piling in behind Boris apart from in those seats where TBP has the best chance and the Tories have none.

          Very much agree Doublethinker, the rise of Islam in this UK and throughout Europe should be the most important issue on all plates as the Muslim population rises to over 76 million in Europe/UK and will rise as millions now assemble weekly on the shores of North Africa ready embark across the Med. If European countries close their borders to all illegal immigration and deport those already illegally in their countries, thos immigrants will keep coming until Western Europe is destroyed and the teaching of Islam inc Sharia Law become binding-we the white christian peoples will be slaves to the will of Allah. The war that will follow will be devastating, moderate democracy will never again be accepted.

    BBC supporting an attack on asthma inhalers…

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-50215011

    Some pretty astounding (and totally unbelievable) claims such as:

    “And at the individual level, each metered-dose inhaler replaced by a dry powder inhaler could save the equivalent of between 150kg and 400kg (63 stone) of carbon dioxide a year – similar to the carbon footprint reduction of cutting meat from your diet.”

    I have no idea how much carbon dioxide is in a typical inhaler but by my reckoning 400kg would be a bloody massive volume and you would need a zeppelin to store your stock.

    Reading the entire article it becomes evident that it is simply a totally rubbish scare story designed to attack meat, so often the “greens” bogey man.

    Would it make more sense to attack the hundreds of millions of (plastic) bottles of exotically flavoured water, chia and other exotic fruit drinks, etc. often carbonated, the drinks of choice and toted everywhere by our green friends, not just the asthmatic ones?

    Why not remove air bags from cars etc. double saving – cut gas production and eliminate some gas consumers from the planet at the same time!

    This is typical “green” slow sabotage, death by a thousand cuts but in this case totally nuts!

    Not Brexit , not the GE but the Rugby WC. Ignore the sports bans in the apartheid years and Imagine that in SA there were hundreds of black farmers and their families being murdered on their farms and the government was doing nothing about it. There would certainly be calls for SA to be banned from the RWC and for England to boycott the final. The BBC would be in meltdown. The woke folk would be out on the streets. But because it is white people who are the victims of this racist violence we hear not a peep.
    The woke folk narrative that white people alive today are guilty of terrible crimes that their long dead ancestors may or may not have committed is highly dangerous. It’s is only a very small step away from legitimising violence against the living. If this narrative carries on for another five or ten years then we are likely to see gangs in the UK emulating what is happening in SA. Indeed there are signs that it has already started.
    The woke folk are in for a very unpleasant surprise when they realise that their wokism is no protection against the consequences of the pogrom that they have started. The rest of us can see what is coming if these fools carry on with their lunacy but I’m not sure what we can do about it. Paying reparations, like Danegeld, won’t stop the violence but will only further legitimise it!

    Only a bit of Toady but it is fascinating that the likes of Tourette’s Robinson keep talking about ‘manifestos ‘. Let’s face it – what voter ever reads a manifesto ? But the state broadcaster seems to think there is value in the contents of Party Manifestos . We’ve just seen that they are without value . They are lies .
    This election will be fought on characters – bojo being popular against nasty Comrade Corbyn .

    People writing here are concerned about such things but there are plenty of good people in Blighty who think politics have nothing to do with them and won’t even know there is an election on . Sometimes I think they are better off .

    If the Conservative party or Brexit Party have any tactical sense they will take advantage of their opponents weaknesses which has devolved into outright stupidity, and make sure every voter knows certain things.
    1) All the opposition parties want open borders and increased immigration.
    2) They want the voting age limited to sixteen years or lower.
    3) They want foreigners to vote in our elections.
    4) They want Britain to have increased subservience to the EU.

    Tell it like it is and don’t prance around like a pack of plonkers is my advice for the coming contest. The Remainer crowd have shown just how dirty they play. Exposing their ridiculous policies would be very effective in my view. And it is the duty of the two pro Brexit parties to do so, because you can be damn sure that the BBC won’t be doing it.

    ***

    Brexit deal ‘means £70bn hit to economy’

    What impact will Boris Johnson’s deal with the EU have on the UK economy if Parliament agrees to it? According to the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, an independent forecaster, it would leave the UK £70bn worse off by 2029 than if Brexit didn’t happen. But the Treasury says it has more “ambitious” plans for trade than the organisation suggests.

    ***

    Now, when the bbc uses a word like ‘independent’, alarm bells go off, just as they do with ‘trust’ and ‘impartial’.

      2. The EU’s Budget is said to be going to increase (we know not by how much) and if we stay in or leave with a contributory deal, we are likely to be paying the EU an increased amount of more than £20bn.
      3. That other economic viewpoints and forecasts are available …..

        What they mean is that estimated GDP if we stayed in the EU might have risen by 15% by 2029, but if we leave it will only rise by 12%.

        It is utterly bogus. Economists can only try to estimate what GDP growth will look like from quarter to quarter, and they usually get that wrong. Everything about this “forecast” depends on the assumptions fed into it, and I rather think that the left wing wonks at this think tank are not exactly Brexiteers.

        If the worst they can do is say that GDP growth over ten years will be 3% lower, I would say we are headed for a major boom!

      I see the illiberals as just another brand of Far Left . I agree that levels of corruption through false postal voting and improper use of ID will have a big effect .

      Perhaps the methods used by President Trump to bypass the Mainstream media will be used bigly this time – and the normal distraction about live debates will waste days of pseudo debate when a lot of people will just be wondering if the tele is any good this Christmas and whether they are putting them great escape , wizard of oz or ‘die hard ‘ on …. ( other Christmas type films are available )

      By the way – ‘some ‘ might raise an eyebrow with the use of the term ‘Far left ‘ . I use it because there is no “right” anymore – just “Far Right “ – so that’s why I use it .

        Fed Up-BUT the Liberal’s are out and out remainers and we
        saw the way how the liberal bigot Emily Maitlis mocked
        the labour MP the other night on Newsnight. One other
        thing Fed Up. Jo Swinson may well turn out to be the star
        of this election campaign. The Millennial’s could well vote for
        her,even with the tuition fees shambles with the Liberals.
        She is very “presentable” and this could come across very
        well on TV. God help us! You may know that I have been
        a bookmaker. Have a few bob on the Liberals winning over 50 seats.
        The winnings could ease the misery.

          Foscari – that is excellent advice and shall consult my turf accountant immediately and perhaps place a shilling on that bet . Might as well profit from bad news .

          My fear is splits in votes between Tory /Brexit party but maybe mirrored by labour / illiberal …

          As for Newsnight – not for decades for me …

          Do not subscribe entirely to your view considering the current Liberal Leader who publically stated after the Brexit result that she would do all she could to STOP Brexit-that statement nevertheless will have rankled many a Liberal voter being so undemocratic and I know one Liberal voter who was furious with that woman’s comment and is now undecided-well that could be the case with many.

          “Presentable” perhaps … but only when the sound is off

          And her dramatic pointy-pointy, gesticulating primary school teacher manner with furrowed brow or silly laugh drives me mad (even when I can’t hear what she’s saying!)

          The sweaters aren’t enough for me … (maybe I’m biased ;o)

        Stew, she’s ‘quite a looker though’, as ‘they’ say in Northern Ireland.

        It’s just greed masquerading as concern for social justice among da sistas.
        Good, may their ridiculous claims ruin the beeb and hasten its demise.

    TOADY Watch #1 – A Cosy Chat …

    ….. with Martha was offered to *BBCBen BBCBradshaw MP (Lab).

    I wonder why?*

    Not a lot of interruption. Bradshaw was allowed to get his BRemain message across.

    We are warned that The Strident Sweater will be on later.

    (* If my memory serves me well, Bradshaw has worked for the BBC in the past, before he became an MP. He’s a bit of a BBC favourite ‘go to’.)

    Wiki notes that Ms Bradshaw s civil partner is one
    Neal Dalgleish a BBC Producer . I don’t need to write more do I ?

    Also nice to know that ms Bradshaw went to a Grammar School – which his Party seeks to banish from the Earths’ face .

      I didn’t check him out, Fed, because I thought my memory was safe on BB’s BBC past. OK, so there’s a present as well. Ho hum.

      Labour (with help from feeble Conservatives) have done all they can to reduce social mobility since the 1960s.

      Grammar Schools and relatively cheap rail and road transport were the biggest drivers of social mobility, providing the route for many in the population to obtain education, University or apprenticeship access, better employment, house ownership and more besides.

      Bradshaw is Mp for Exeter. That was once one of England’s finest cities and for me so much of what this country is or rather was. A city where the people of the countryside came and mixed with the people of the city. Where the past and the present were at ease.
      Now it has the MP it deserves. A wretched place best by passed on the M5.
