Midweek Thread 13 November 2019

The Far Left Biased BBC appears to be running an unashamed campaign to support its best friend – the Labour Party – in the General Election . Stories which are anti – Conservative run in News programmes across news cycles and stories damaging to the Labour Party are avoided or dropped . It has been a switch from anti brexit to anti Conservative propaganda . It’s lucky more and more people now regard the BBC as an embarrassing joke as opposed to the reliable broadcaster it was a long time ago.

    Congratulations . I think quite a few people are so Fedup with the BBC that they avoid it now so don’t comment more . Anyway

    Toady Bias
    The BBC has decided to use a report about ‘Russian interference ‘ in UK politics as a weapon to beat the Conservative Party . So today they rolled on the dodgy Malcom Rifkind to bad mouth bojo .he wasn’t declared as the traitor remainer he is but supported fellow traitor Grieve .

    There was no challenge to his view . This follows on from the unchallenged nonsense from a dodgy Clinton yesterday trying to sell her book .

    This was followed by another traitor remainer ex Tory called David Gauge who told people to vote Liberal. There was no shame . There was no serious challenge .

    Then the news led with a money tree story about the wonderful Labour Party promising to give the wonderful NHS more cash than the Conservative party .

    In summary – one whole hour of anti Conservative Propaganda . And now the sport .

        It is like a whole different MeToo event. Mr D and I listen or watch very little BBC or even ITV these days. I recommend Last Of The Summer Wine on Drama or wherever it is. A time when humour was cleverly constructed and only the slightest innuendo. The way Compo’s real life death was handled was brilliant, real sympathy but still with humour.

        We still switch on some evenings to BBC1 news but usually don’t even last the headlines as we don’t need agenda driven stories about Labour or Climate Change (sorry, that should be Emergency according to Gretha).

        For light relief here I can tell you there has been a Twitter storm about Boris (according to the Daily Mail). Apparently he doesn’t take his tea bag out of the mug until he has added the milk (neither do I). I wish all our problems could be so small.

    I must admit to cutting down my BBC viewing and listening time but the BBC news website is amazing to look at for it’s bias. Take this story of Delphine, an African invader who died in a detention centre after crossing the Med.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-africa-50389544/libya-migrant-mother-s-dying-wish-to-get-children-to-europe

    The BBC film report is designed to make the viewer feel guilty and responsible for her death and the upbringing of her children. No coincidence that it fits in perfectly with Corbyn’s and the Labour policy of “let them all in regardless.”

    Leave the video running and another video starts to run automatically about sub-Saharan invaders ‘trapped in Libya’.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-africa-49157113/tortured-and-abused-one-somali-woman-s-ordeal-in-libya

    What is obvious from looking at these people and what they have to say is the Entitlement that they feel is owed towards them.

    I wish Orla would ask why they travelled through several safe countries to get to the UK and why didn’t they settle in a muslim country which shares their faith and way of life.

      General election 2019: Labour pledges to outspend Tories on the NHS

      NHS election

      With 29 days to go until the general election, Labour is laying out its spending plans for the NHS in England. If it wins, it is promising to spend £155bn a year on it by 2023-24 – £6bn more than the Conservatives set out over the same period in a plan published last year.

      But the Conservatives have responded that, as Labour wants to reduce the working week to 32 hours, this would eat into funding, because of the need to take on more staff. Here are 11 charts on why the NHS is an important battleground during the election.

      Brexit is also on the agenda today. Conservative leader Boris Johnson, who is promising to get it done by 31 January if he wins on 12 December, will say – in his first major speech of the campaign – that any more “groundhoggery” will damage the economy. But Labour argues the PM’s deal with the EU is flawed and is promising another referendum. Read our guide to where the parties stand on Brexit.

      In other news, ex-cabinet minister David Gauke, whom Mr Johnson expelled from the Conservative parliamentary party, is standing as an independent. And the party has suspended a number of members over allegations of Islamophobic social media posts.

      The Green Party has said it would create a “carbon chancellor” to reduce emissions. The Liberal Democrats are proposing £500m for youth services to tackle knife crime. And the SNP says it is the only party that can “lock Boris Johnson out of Downing Street”.

      A busy day, then. Get on top of it all using our really simple election guide: vote Labour, ok?

            Here’s a suggestion:
            If you live in an estate which is prone to flooding, why not form an estate committee which could do at least two things; 1. Put pressure on the local council to improve the infrastructure and reduce the possibility of flooding and 2. Start a fund among the residents to do some preventative work yourselves.

All very nice living close to water, whether its stream/river or the sea, but ‘common sense’ should now prevail, and its only when sales are not forthcoming, will developers hesitate before committing funds to dead ducks on flood plains.

              Boris at the scene of the floods is being hectored by ‘members of the public’ (? I wonder) asking where was he 3 days ago. So has it become a requirement for our Prime Minister to immediately appear at the scene of any flood or other type of emergency ? If there is any complaint regarding the response to events such as these surely it should be directed towards the Local Authority and emergency services. Victims need practical assistance from trained professionals. Politicians standing about saying ‘tut tut’ do not provide any tangible help.

People just want the emergency services and council officers to provide an alternative to whatever emergency they’re experiencing. The Royal family are the best at looking pious, and have mastered the art of tutting over the years – which has to be endured.

    • Ian Rushlow says:

      It is a very fair and balanced account of the subject, bringing together many strands, including the role of the media, the criminal behaviour of the Labour Party and the Tories’ plans for further increase immigration. But there is still a fundamental problem with the views of Lord Green, Peter Whittle and indeed Nigel Farage. They all nod their heads at the right moment and make the assumption that immigration is somehow a good thing and that it is really just a question of numbers. But that is all it is: an assumption, an assertion, an acceptance of the current situation, and it is one that is not necessarily shared by the majority of ordinary people. What is required at this point is a complete reassessment of the country we wish to be and the likely nature of the world in 25 years time, 50 years time, 100 years time. For instance, the Treasury constantly pushes the mantra that immigration is essential for economic growth, but why is growth automatically a desirable thing? An alternative viewpoint might be that a more equitable society might be preferable, or one that is more sustainable, or people simply might have a preferance for one that is less materialistic and more traditional in values and be willing to forego the ability to buy the latest smartphone every 18 months.

        Agreed Ian!

        I’m in no way a racist, and some of my ancestry includes immigrants over the last 100 years (my blood didn’t all come here with William the Bastard and isn’t all Celtic, or Roman, or Anglo-Saxon, or Viking, although I probably have something of all of those in me). However, anyone with a grain of sense, and ALL of my more recent immigrant friends, Polish, Spanish, Indian, Chinese and so forth, would tell you that the UK is not such a big, empty country, nor has the resources, to cram in many more people.

        Besides, we all choose to live here BECAUSE we like the culture and traditions of the place – the British way of life, in other words. We CHOOSE to be British, wherever our ancestors came from originally, and when you choose to affiliate yourself with a particular way of life, you accept that you will live by the rules of those already living that lifestyle, and you don’t wreck what’s already here.

          BBC there’s a bit of a contradiction in what you say. At the end of the 1st paragraph you say that immigrant friends are of the opinion the UK does not have the resources to bring more people here, and the 2nd paragraph is why they are here in the first place. Yet they are the reason we are unable to ‘cram’ in more people, because they want to be here – as sadly so do the rest of the world ! The only fantasy answer is to create a second UK somewhere else on the planet.

            You’re right Brissles, what I said was contradictory… but, nowhere near as crazy as the twaddle we hear from the ‘liberal intellectuals’ of this country on the subject (hey, maybe I can claim to be one of the ‘intellectual elite’ too… if I keep spouting bullcrap?)

            The way I look at it, so long as they’re: here legally, law abiding and try to fit in with us natives, we have to try to get along with more recent immigrants really – what else are you going to do, deport them? Our ancestors were all immigrants at some point, and I can’t hate people just for wanting to live in a better place.

            That doesn’t mean I’m not sad about what recent waves of mass , uncontrolled immigration over the last 20 odd years have done to the green and pleasant land of my childhood. It’s tragic, but I don’t see how we can turn the clock back on that (personally, I see it as one more thing to blame that Blair for, although what have the Tories done about it since hey?!)

            Why aren’t there any ‘second UKs’ elsewhere? Good point, maybe the US, Canada, Aus, NZ, South Africa? Kenya? Rhodesia?!… were all ‘second UKs’ once upon a time? Not now though, they’re all cram full too, and have immigrant problems… well, that’s what I hear from friends and family in Aus and NZ, anyway, and how much of the US seems to me.

            Canada still has a lot of empty space, even more than Scotland, but the subarctic winter, and six months of darkness, seem to put quite a few off… no idea why.

        Ian and others, one of the contradictions and hypocrisies of the whole immigration thing, whether widespread or points based or limited to specific needs immigration is that other countries are being deprived of human and financial and other resources.

        It is Imperialism. It is the New Imperialism.

        But it is shortsighted Imperialism. We and they would be much better off if they remain there. By all means take in overseas students and give them an education but then send them back to grow their countries. What we are doing currently is impoverishing the world and ourselves.

        We in the UK maintain unnecessarily high unemployment. Its new floor, in relatively good to extremely good economic times, appears now to be stubbornly stuck at 1.3 million approximately and has been for over two decades. We overload our housing stock, Health Service, transport networks and primary & secondary education systems.

        The countries from which migration comes is also impoverished in those same sectors in that last sentence above as well as in its business sector. That country then either becomes a target for asset strippers or remains in poverty because it hasn’t an educated, healthy population to trade with the UK.

        There is then pressure on the UK to provide aid.

        That is crazy!

        Trade not aid.

    I note that several contributors today are sensibly drastically reducing their viewing time of BBC tripe, which is very laudable. But I also note that a few think that the BBC is becoming irrelevant, which I think is a dangerous thing to think. The foul BBC has fingers in many pies particularly those aimed at school children and the educational sector. With the connivance of the education blob it is busily rewriting our history or rather teaching new generations of children our history from a leftist perspective. The only time that BBC will be irrelevant is when it is dead and buried.

        Agree with you Cassandra and with Doublethinker and like you the influence the BBC and other forms of the media are definitely interfering with the teaching of our history, British History- hearing from my grandchildren how history is being presented is appalling and confusing-Geography is not much better. Watching Richard Osman’s little show last night I was appalled at the lack of Geographic knowledge the four invited guests had. Most of what they were asked I had learnt at school, and as to history it was taught to me in chronological order which gave me and my fellow pupils the right perspective; not as is now often taught with, one section from any place date, such Elizabeth 1st then Norman Conquest-how on earth can that be sensible-and rather than teach children the geographics of the UK, shape, cities, towns, rivers and so on, they start with Afirca or China- god forbid. Politically expedient for the way that it is all going, and mainly because of the supposed multicultural programme, not to hurt or upset anyone new incommers feelings!

      I used to think three or four years back that there was time to change the BBC and for it to ‘pop a U-ey’ (go through a 180° change of direction) if you will forgive an Americanism. There was – in the past – a chance I thought for reform of the BBC.

      Now, I am not so sure.

    I think there is a fundamental problem with a site like this . It is that because people rightly get worn down by the nazi Type propaganda methods the BBC use to plant their approved view of the world they stop watching and listening .

    I’m at the state where I only listen to the Toady programme out of a kind of duty .

    I agree that the BBC is dangerous to the young – in the same way the nazis were to their kids – twisting young minds through indoctrination of what it ‘normal’ . More than 2 genders in unnatural – but the BBC sees it as ‘good’. Mass immigration is ‘good ‘ . So treat those who have turned up here equally to those who are indigenous . That kind of stuff .

    I obviously watch the ‘traffic ‘ on the site to try to keep it ‘tidy ‘ – so when a ‘horror ‘ occurs I know contributions will increase . I actually expect contributions to decrease across the next 4 long weeks as election stress sets in and people Just Don’t Want to Know…

        My car is in for its MOT, so I travelled to work this morning with a friend and colleague, who wanted to hear the news on the radio – so on goes Radio 4.

        It was my first exposure to the BBC (other than the webshite) for months, and there was all the usual blatant bias and agenda mongering. Even my friend, a very, very easy going gent, was annoyed by some of it, I’m not 100% sure what sparked it (I’d phased out by then), think it was some blatantly pro-Corbyn propaganda, but he said “Does that sound right to you? It doesn’t sound right to me… our news seems more like something from the USSR every day”. I was surprised, he’s never said anything similar at work, and I’ve never broached the subject of BBC bias with him, generally I keep such views close to my chest.

        The world at large now sees the BBC (actually nearly all the MSM) for what it is.

      Fed up,
      I know that a few weeks ago you urged contributors to focus their comments more on the BBC and less on other issues. But as I said at the time I find it almost impossible to watch the BBC these days. For example there was a cookery programme on Swedish cuisine which I thought might be interesting so I began to watch. I know you can guess what happened , within ten minutes we were being treated to the delights of Middle Eastern cuisine available in Malmo. I couldn’t watch any longer. Almost every programme on any topic is now contaminated with huge dollops of PC sauce. The news and current affairs programmes are grotesquely biased and totally unwatchable. This means that I have less knowledge of the current BBC output than perhaps I should have if I want to comment on the site. But the BBC serves a particular political view point and I think that there is relevance in commenting more widely on that viewpoint than confining comment to a narrow focus on the BBC.

          I appreciate the thought and when I made the comment I knew how difficult it is to remain focused purely on BBC output because it does infect all areas of life with its agenda .

          The irony is that people who are most concerned about the propaganda the BBC spew out are watching it and listening to it less .

          I was a regular R4 listener but barely even look at the schedule any more – particularly the drama department just putting out endless Social Justice Warrior stuff .

          The news is mainly a ‘no go ‘ area for me as well . As for local stuff – it’s not aimed at white British people any more .

      Yes of course Islam is a threat to the white indig western peoples-Islam’s ideology is so far away from our own, it is alien to our way of thinking-note there are approx 75 million people in Europe that follow the teachings of Islam (Muslim), in certain areas such as the UK they have instituted their own Sharia Law, which is in defiance of our Judical laws-Sharia Law should not be allowed in the United Kingdom. Their infiltration (Islam) is now in every important sector of our nation-note that most airports employ a majority of Muslims, baggge handlers ect, alongside most taxi drivers. Let us make no mistake this Islamic political Ideology has no place in our Christian society. Be aware that millions more are swarming along the North African Coast ready to make the jump into Europe aided and abetted by the Muslim Trafficking gangs that operate all over the world. Within Muslim law a man is allowed more than one wife, and therefore can produce many children-as the once leader of Lybia said, the war would be won through the wombs of Muslim women. What action can we take? Shut our borders solid against any who are noted or claim to be followers of Islam-practical? Probably not, but that is what we should do now right now. The future ?

    We hear a lot of lefties say the bbc is biased to the right.

    Honest!

    It got me wondering, is there an equivalent site to this one but from the left point of view.

    We get hundreds of comments and examples of the bbbc’s lefty bias on these pages each day.
    If the lefties think the bbc actually is biased to the right then they should be able to list examples as our contributors do.

    It would be fun to go onto a lefty bbbc site and get some comments posted.

    The thing is, as we all know, they would have nothing to write as there is no right wing bias on the bbc.
    Perhaps they could complain that there is usually one leaver on QT and that should be reduced so that all five (and the presenter of course) are remainders.

    If anyone knows of a site (maxi?) could they put the details on here.

      Well there was the meltdown over the ‘Corbyn hat’ last year I think it was. Not sure what that was about but they analysed it in great detail so much that it became obsessive.

      The thing is the BBC are Blairite by nature so there was a time when they where less sure about Corbyn. How can Labour win with him leading the party? The Blairites wanted him gone so they sided with the Blairites.

      Then that election in 2017 happened and Corbyn got the ‘youth surge’ and all of a sudden he was being presented by the left as a ‘PM in waiting’ despite losing to Theresa May. The BBC then very quickly realised that Corbyn was their man and have been on his side ever since.

      If Labour lose again and I am getting my hopes up here then Corbyn will have to step down or the remaining Blairites will get their claws out and boot him out. This will plunge Labour into a civil war with Momentum wanting another Corbynist to lead the party while the remaining Blairites would want one of their people. Another split is possible.

      Labour know that this GE is their last chance to get Corbyn elected and so are pushing themselves hard even though they have gone into the election with no confidence in themselves. The BBC of course will boost Corbyn as much as they can so anything negative is ignored altogether as a Johnson majority will lead to Brexit and then a new meltdown at the BBC.

    I am posting this again.

    I have just watched on You Tube a very disturbing and alarming interview. See link to the clip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnwpuxkQWbE
    UK Immigration: The Facts.

    And the web site Migration Watch UK https://www.migrationwatchuk.org/

    Please listen to the interview and take a look at the web site. Tell your friends about them.

    I remember reading the on the day the Brexit came out that the ONS published a report stating the population of the UK was now 65 million and expected to increase 500 thousand net annually primarily due to births from immigrants.

    We are losing our culture and way of life. It has been estimated that by 2060 the white population will be a minority in the UK. This is the legacy we will be leaving for our grand-children and great grand-children. Watch the interview with Lord Green and then place your cross on the ballot paper

    • Zelazek says:

      SkeptikEye – Yes, this is a proper, in-depth interview. Not the kind of thing you get on the bBBC anymore. On the Today programme, for example, Lord Green only ever gets aggressive interrogation, interruptions of his train of thought, and diverted from no-go areas. In fact, if one only ever listened to the BBC, one would not really understand why some people have concerns about mass immigration, only that it was the philosophy of evil people. And certainly no attempt is ever made by the BBC to explain or understand white nationalism. Probably because it might actually start to make sense to a population that is continually being force-fed diversity myths and taught to hate themselves. But the crisis in our society is more than a concern about immigration, it is about our survival as a people. The BBC is presenting the importation of aliens into our country as enrichment when in fact it is a displacement. If and when the white British get a sense that their destiny is no longer in their own hands, there will be civil war – and the BBC will be responsible. As the primary platform for debate and national discussion in this country, they will be at fault for their refusal to properly elucidate this problem and for not recognising that self-preservation is the first law of nature.

    Did anyone else see the interview between our BBC Minchin and Labour Jonathan Ashworth re the 6 billion extra NHS funding to recruit more staff and the 4 day working week for everyone as proposed by Labour

    When Ashworth said the extra funding would mean loads more NHS staff our Louise asked if the NHS staff would be included in the 4 day week plan. (Rather deflating plan A).

    The look of surprise and realisation of the contradiction of this stupidity on Ashworth’s face was beautiful. he could only blurt out NO!

    Back to the drawing board….
    End of interview….

    Made my frigging day!

    I bet the BBC don’t run with “NHS staff to be excluded from Labour’s 4 day week plan”

        Stephan Lewandowsky, Professor of Psychology at Bristol University, thinks that Atmospheric Physicists, Solar Astronomers and Meteorologists should be put in the loony bin, if they don’t agree with his opinions on Climate science. The loony professor produced a scientific paper “NASA Faked the Moon Landing – Therefore (Climate) Science is a Hoax” which claimed that scientists like Harrison Schmidt and Buzz Aldrin, who think that man-made Climate Change is a Hoax, also think that NASA Faked the Moon Landings. The two Climate sceptics Harrison Schmidt and Buzz Aldrin, who were the only two scientists to walk on the Moon, don’t agree with Stephan Lewandowsky on this issue, and provide the best evidence against his theories on the Psychology of those who don’t think carbon dioxide causes the Climate to change.

        This scientific paper therefore proved that Stephan Lewandowsky was a mentally ill swivel eyed Looney. Also, I read that white supremacists and fascists such as Oswald Mosley are usually Pro-EU for obvious reasons as regarding a union of the white races of Europe.

    From the awful website:

    ‘General election 2019: Labour vows to outspend Tories on the NHS’

    So Labour are up for a game of political football are they?

    ‘General election 2019: Tory majority ‘bad outcome for country’, says Gauke’

    Labour in disguise?

    ‘General election 2019: Labour Party hit by second cyber-attack’

    Am I the only one who laughed at this?

    ………….

    Also it is worth to mention that there has been a few polls up lately. The BBC have kept polls quiet but yesterday a Survation poll appeared which shows that the Tory lead has narrowed to 6 points. This poll is already a few days old and was released the same day as other polls which showed a larger Tory lead. Since then other polls have been published all showing better Tory leads and the most recent is from Yougov who have given the Tories a lead of 14 points.

    The left where celebrating over their biased Survation poll despite still showing Labour behind. The last time Labour have been ahead was in a suspicious Comres poll just after Johnson became PM and the only poll since then to ever show the Tories behind even then it was just a one point lead. Comres now have the Tories leading by 8 points.

    Now I know polls ‘don’t mean anything’ but to the left it does. Even if they are still losing!

    All that hype over an outdated Survation poll I am surprised that the BBC did not interrupt regular viewings just to let us know.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ash_Wednesday_bushfires
    I filmed in Australia in the early ’80s for the BBC TV Farming programme.
    We were following a British family that had emigrated.
    We were there during a terrible drought and filmed sheep being slaughtered as they could not be fed.
    Then the bush fires started in the Warrnambool area of western Victoria. We flew down there to film the devastation.
    My recollection was about 75 people killed, many tens of thousands of sheep and cattle, hundreds of houses destroyed.
    Why did it happen?
    Drought (not unusual), natural stimulus to start a fire, and eucalyptus trees that give off volatile organic compounds that can carry flames over long distances.
    Plus the Greens would not let them cut down any tree with a trunk you could not put your two hands round – never mind it being right next to your wooden house!
    So nothing to do with climate change – but don’t upset Greta with the facts!
    Best memory? The astonishing resilience of the Aussies.
    They were not screaming for government help.
    They knew the risks and they knew how to survive.
    “She’ll be right, mate” was the normal response.
    I was deeply impressed and will tell that story as long as I can.

    There seems no point in feeling dejected about the enemy gaining in strength daily, becoming ever more powerful and menacing both at home and abroad, it would be like feeling dejected about Mount Everest or some event of the earth outside everyone’s scope. Facing apocalypse, indigenous folk continue to exchange assurances of dejected feelings about the weather or a football result. With their constant unanimous denial that the ancient enemy poses a renewed cataclysmic threat and their censoring of all discussion of the subject, even dejection seems pointless. In the run-up to the general election the BBC will pack its debate audiences with left-wingers, liberals and ethnics, including many Muslims. Even if it were aware that other views existed, it will not allow these views to be expressed. It will not be alone. The fortress now has an authoritarian dispensation that determines what people can think and say. Dissenters from the approved line are a despised residuum (Residual, what remains), against whom it is deemed not necessary to substantiate or argue a case.
    These television and radio events are not debates. A debate is a verbal contest conducted according to rational principles, featuring the arts of sequential thought and rhetorical skills, between people whose opinions differ. The fake debates inside the fortress are done for the sake of appearances and to give the broadcasters something to do.
    Britain – our beautiful, decent, gentle, moral Britain – is fast sinking into a pit of third world ignorance, squalor, crime and conflict. Communities that have stood for centuries are being eradicated whilst politicians wedge open the gates for each new invasion from the Third World. British families subsist in squalid temporary accommodation while councils allocate good homes to immigrants. Unscrupulous businessmen count the profits of cheap foreign Labour while native Brits struggle to obtain work. Greedy property developers sell our land, lot by lot, to wealthy overseas buyers, pricing British people out of the market. And left-wing education zealots celebrate the ‘diversity’ of ethnic schools whilst denying British children their cultural heritage.
    But take heart. One day, treacherous MPs and their accomplices will be held accountable for every English community destroyed by mass immigration; for every English girl gang-raped by filthy Pakistani racists; for every quiet Brit murdered by some East European psychopath; for every commuter bombed and every soldier beheaded by Muslim fanatics.
    They think they are safe from the consequences of their actions, but the British have long memories. Today’s politicians should take heed, and modify their actions accordingly – because prison will be the very least of their worries when an enraged populace realise that the Britain they loved has been destroyed forever These people, these enemies of Britain, are hereby reminded that this country belongs to us, and is not their personal property to dispose of as they wish, to satisfy greed, vanity, ideology or power-lust. Propagandists of political correctness tell us that ‘hate’ is the worst crime of all. But a patriotic Brit would have to be wrong in the head not to hate the political class for what they are doing to Britain right now.

    The guardian running a story titled

    I would burn in hell before returning’ – why British teachers are fleeing overseas

    https://www.theguardian.com/education/2019/nov/13/why-british-teachers-fleeing-overseas-international-schools

    What? being forced to flee abroad to work by the working conditions in UK schools?

    Well.. this text sets the scene neatly I think.

    “Perched high on a hill above the historic Swiss city of St Gallen, set in 25 acres of private parkland, sits one of the most expensive boarding schools in Europe. Costing up to £100,000 for an academic year, the Institut auf dem Rosenberg is more than twice as expensive as Eton college and educates the offspring of some of the wealthiest people in the world. Most of whom, it turns out, will be taught by teachers who trained in the cash-strapped classrooms of UK state schools.

    Those teachers who find themselves in Rosenberg’s five-star setting are a small subset of the thousands leaving their students in Oldham and Lewisham, Liverpool and Leicester, and heading for Switzerland, China, Canada, Dubai, Australia, Thailand, Mexico, Nepal and numerous other international education destinations.”

    It goes on…

    “Here pupils are invited to bring their own horses, and meals are served in a high-end restaurant catering for every dietary requirement.”

    And….

    “here the children’s bathrooms are marble-lined and each new younger student is given a Steiff teddy bear to share their pillow”

    So it seems that the fleeing teachers are actually seeking luxury and elitism rather than the inhospitable conditions growing in increasingly overcrowded UK schools thanks to overcrowding, forced diversity, political correctness and the removal of any discipline.

    What a shame that some of the unfortunate children at UK schools wanting a better life can’t make this life-style decision too.

    This could only have been written by a Guardanista, ultra-rich would be pretend socialist.

    The author is Sally Weale, the Guardian education writer, her blog is stuffed with lefty, “get the students out to vote (for Corbyn) indoctrinating crap too… very double standards to me!

      Michael Mopurgo was urging the young to travel the world, burning up air-miles or in carbon fibre boats, he wasn’t clear.

      The idea that the EU is a force for peace is laughable, try telling that story in Ukraine. Perhaps it might stop Germany invading France again, now they own it there is no need, but one Verhofstadt gets his empire and army what’s to stop them?

      If we each had a big farm then perhaps we too wouldn’t be bothered if our cities fill up with ‘migrants’?

    George Monbiot , one of those metro snowflakes the BBC loves so much is the gypsys ‘ friend . Writing in the house paper – The Gaurdian today – he thinks Pritti Patels announcement that stiffer laws will be brought in to deal with Gypsys is nasty .

    And if you don’t know what a gypsy is – there’s a helpful picture of two horses pulling a nice traditional wagon .
    When in real life we are talking about organised criminals called ‘ travellers ‘ who are a menace to any community – and must be dealt with .

      Most of the Guardianistas and their ilk, live in North London in their tree lined streets and trendy converted houses. Not exactly the sort of area where a convoy of caravans pulled by 4 x 4’s pitch up at Bank Holidays and offload all their detritus – and yes, I’m talking shitty nappies here. I know this from personal experience, when they’ve arrived at the end of a no through road, which they used as they’re personal dumping space for old furniture, and several dozen black bin bags.

      To hear these mainly Irish travellers referred to as a ‘minority’ and should be treated as such, is an insult to the rest of us.

    From a left blog. Following the mistake the BBC made when they used archive material to replace Boris at the Cenotaph.

    The left do see the BBC as biased in favour of Boris.

      No the PR people just do propaganda posts playing the victim
      It works very well to their own side
      who swallow such conspiracy theories without checking their facts.

    If the BBC even mention Boris for one minute out of a 24hr day in ridicule, the lunatic left will call them biased. They want total control. Nothing less will pacify their insane rage.
    Many of the comments on the likes of Twitter & Disqus claiming a right-wing bias on the BBC are BBC activists. They attempt to create an air of “impartiality” to legitimise themselves. The “we-think-we-got-it-about-right get-out clause is in their minds, defensible if they can show that some comments complain of a right-wing bias. Even if it isn’t provable with evidence.

    I saw that too.

    The newsbint read out the headlines at the start “Labour will outspend the Tories on the NHS”, read the rest of the headlines (Gauke, Boris getting heckled in Doncaster).

    Headlines finished, top story presented “Labour has said it will outspend the Tories on the NHS” explained in detail with the usual “big bad uncaring Tories” narrative – then over to Nomark Smith in Westminster who again repeated the “Labour will outspend the Tories on the NHS” mantra and explained that the political thinking behind it was to reinforce the FACT that the Labour party always spent more on the NHS and wanted to stop the big bad uncaring Tories privatising it and/or running it down (all presented as facts with absolutely no attempt at balance).

    Then over to some “factchecker” [email protected] for an explanation of how NHS spending since the days of New Labour (both under the Tory led coalition and then the Tories themselves) was always way behind where it needed to be (no mention of the nation’s empty coffers when New Labour were booted out nor of the increased burden caused by the population explosion nor of the already record amounts spent).

    A couple more Tory bashing stories (Gauke’s comments and Boris’ less than rapturous welcome in Yorkshire).

    THEN again, at the half way point in the bulletin, a repeat and recap of the first three items and another recital of “Labour will outspend the Tories on the NHS”.

    I am sure that the whole thing will get repeated on the programmes at 6 and 10.

    Biased to its rotten core and smug enough to not even attempt to hide the fact!

    Some very clear facts for the financial gurus formulating the Labour plan to give every worker in the UK a 4 day week on the same pay…..

    Every product made by factories in the UK takes X man-hours to produce. (or woman-hours).

    The retail cost of the product is based on the raw materials, overheads and the total man-hours hourly rate.

    If companies then have to pay each man-hour worked an additional 20% so they get the same pay as before, this will have to be reflected in the price of the product.

    Every Company will have to employ 20% more staff to get the same output.

    The products will then need be bought by the same people. So they will all get an extra day off but pay 20% more for every product they buy.

    I fail to see how supposedly intelligent people in the Labour Party can come up with this….

    The actual result will be a huge rise in unemployment but the Labour Party like this outcome as it places livelihoods in the hands of the State.

    Mondays R4 Analysis by Edward Sturton
    was basically ‘those Tories they invoke historic events in their speeches’
    … Item #1 was JRM invoked the Battle of Agincourt
    Sturton told us ‘You know people often make out the English were outnumbered by magnitudes whereas really it was about 15%’

    FFS all the items were nothingburgers like that.

    No mention was made of lefties invoking slavery or Peterloo etc

    I would have thought that shouting ‘You dont know who I am , take your smelly eggs from under my nose’
    is playground stuff
    Instead after 4 days police track down the culprit arrest her, then 1 year later put her on trial
    and find her guilty if ‘intentionally, causing harassment, alarm or distress’ and fined her £1,500;total.

          Stew – I read the story a couple of days ago and the ‘south American ‘ origin registered but I suppose South African third worlders find eating a boiled egg on a commuter train at 0600 is perfectly socially acceptable .

          If it happened on certain trains I used to use at that time of day – she’d have landed up under the train ….

          I’m sure the public interest was served by the prosecution …

    Both my local BBC stations high on the news each hour
    .. why is that ? It’s pure propaganda
    If there is a Trump trial and he is convicted then that would be news..not this endless speculation of playing Sopel clips.
    … And now the R4 Media Show has the NYT banging on about Trump.

    By the way he just said the NYT circulation is 5m .. so in a country 5 times bigger, his paper actually only gets the same number of readers as the Sun or Daily Mail
    Amol just pointed out that 98% of Americans don’t read the NYT

    other guest is from the FT
    The NYT guy is one of the few black editors of a big US newspapers.
    “Dean Baquet, executive editor of The New York Times and Lionel Barber, editor of The Financial Times.
    Mr Barber announced this week that he is standing down and will be replaced in January by Roula Khalaf, the first female editor of the FT “.
