      I saw him too Not Gwent, I had the misfortune of walking in on that hateful liberal magazine programme Sunday Brunch on Channel 4. With it being Christmas, Dan (only famous as he’s the son of “I’ve never seen so many white people” Jon) Snow was selling his book. It’s a look at the entirety of human history from the Iron Age to the present day. I doubt it was a coincidence that I entered the room as he was criticising President Trump and commenting on Brexit. So there you have it from the author’s mouth, a book covering nearly 3000 years of human history……Trump bad, Brexit. It goes without saying that even without reading the book I predict it will be less balanced historical document and more left leaning revisionism of history. It also goes without saying that it won’t be going on my Christmas list.

        I think you are confusing Jon and Peter Snow. Dan is the son of Peter, but is in some way related to the even-handed and supremely impartial Jon.
        Clearly, Dan ticks all the right BBC boxes.
        If you don’t, you suddenly find your show has been cancelled (Bellamy style) or you don’t get any work from your fellow luvvies.

    Just caught the No1 Propaganda programme on Radio4 before the off switch: ‘Wimmin’s Hour’. 1 programme that is non-stop, blatant propaganda, in fact!
    Despite all the beeb lip service to ‘equality’, there is no ‘men’s hour’. The hypocrisy doesn’t appear to have been noticed by the vastly overpaid beeb top brass. (All good Socialists, no doubt).
    Apparently we will hear about lesbians flocking to Halifax and multicultural Ireland. My guess is there will be a lot about ‘racism’. A favourite topic on ‘Wimmin’s Hour’. Little there without droning on about ‘racism’ and slavery as well (nothing about the history of white slaves, though; the programme is itself racist) As well as how wimmin are at the bottom of all piles ( a lot of rubbish; radio4 especially is dominated by the fairer sex, and we won’t even start talking about the Cressida Dicks, Theresa Mays etc etc of this world)
    OFF Switch.

    “ Victoria Station Manchester man admits attempted murder “

    That’s the headline on the BBC website – but it turns out that this is actually an Islamic terrorist carrying out multiple stabbing .

    His name ? Mahdi Mohamud, 26

    I’ve often said here that if you imbibe BBC products regularly you become accustomed to the very subtle omissions and avoidances of reality against the Bb, view of the world .

    I’m sure that if you read this and go looking for the story it will have been even further downgraded .

    I noticed , too , that the story doesn’t mention the usual ‘ mental issues ‘ but no doubt some defence brief specialising in defending enemies of our country will try it on .

    Nowt on beeb (not surprising, since their foreign reporting is dictated largely by their narratives, not actual events):
    10,000 farmers waving German flags occupy the centre of Berlin. The climate change scene is dictating their lives; they have to look after the survival of birds, insects, bees etc, without any compensation for reduced land capacity.
    Personally, I’m all for the survival of those creatures. But the issues are always more complex. Take the survival of birds, for instance: thousands of murderous wind farms decimate the bird and bat populations! And thousands more are being built, ruining our once-beautiful country and killing more birds than farming ever could!

    But these farmers have another problem; waving German flags. Ms Merkel expressly signalled the attitude to be taken when she recently threw a German flag she was given, into the dirt. Don’t these farmers take any cues?

      I do hope the BBC worker Sam Clack 38, a producer at the BBC who witnessed the “incident” gave evidence at the time that he did hear the suspect shouting “Allah” before and during the attack.

      He (Sam Clack) quoted the suspect as saying: “As long as you keep bombing other countries this sort of shit is going to keep happening.”

      Now then. Its funny how the BBC fail to report that one of thier own witnessed the “events”……perhaps they dont want to talk about it, understandable given the BBC take on Islamic Terrorism…

      But worse of all the (insert swear word of choice) BBC give no mention whatsoever that the “terrorist ” attack took place yards away from where that scumbag killed those kids at the concert……and yards away from the shrine dedicated to thier memoray.

    Not major bias but this made me laugh. M&S Christmas ad shows people dancing Jamaican style… it automatically triggers the blackphone on the Newsbeat desk… they race over to social media to look for some moaning about cultural appropriation.

    “… Seani B said “respect” needs to be shown to Ding Dong and his team Ravers Clavers – who he says originally came up with dance moves you see in the M&S advert.”

    There you go… forget black culture having anything to do with machetes and gang warfare, we should show more respect to a bloke calling himself Ding Dong.

      Good for Labour. Hopefully they’ll do exactly what Hilary Clinton did and place a distant second on December 12th. She spent her time glad handing with vocal minorities all of which played well with the liberal press and tv, but didn’t play well with what I’ll call “the majority”. You can attract as many small minorities as you like but their number a) doesn’t match the size of the majority, and b) by perceived exclusion you drive people who otherwise would have voted for you away. Genuine inclusivity doesn’t seem to exist, it always seems to be exclusion of one group in favour of including another. All imo of course.

    World at one spent 25 minutes on Labour Party anti semitism . Labour sends an MP. On who admits not knowing the number of allegations being dealt with and generally knowing nothing cos she’s only an MP – the angie Raynor / dawn butler method .

    Lord Faulkner comes on to explain that he is still voting labour despite the party not dealing with anti semitism – I think he sees his Party after Corbyn and the comrades have been purged …

    Then went on the defence of a superintendent plod who has been convicted of possessing child porn or similar .
    Towards the end it was disclosed the plod is both female and more importantly black . So the race card was played an ex black plod rolled out to defend her and the conviction treated as an ‘ inconvenience ‘ .
    The normal pattern is for the BBC to turn this into a campaign – support an appeal – get a friendly appeal court to let her off and get her promoted whilst playing the full on victim card.

    Perhaps DFS adverts beckon ?

    It seems as clear as day to me that Labour aren’t bothered about anti Semitism, why should they be? The Muslim vote is counted in millions (and growing, judging by the number of non-white ladies in our local maternity department yesterday !) whilst the Jewish vote is a mere few hundred thousand.

      Brissles-100% correct. If the “fixers” can do another Peterborough
      with postal votes. The Muslim vote could even win labour
      another 20 or more seats. The Jewish vote except in maybe
      two or three seats count for nothing. There are not even
      300,000 Jews in the UK. There are more than 10 times more Muslims.
      The more anti -Semitic Labour appear to be,and actually I believe
      that Labour are now using this as a vote catcher , the more
      certain it is that they will win certain categories of voters.
      Perceived anti-Semitism and Machiavellian support of the BBC,
      plus postal voting election fraud, could yet win Labour the election. At least I have somewhere else to go. The rest will
      have to get used to the BBC proudly playing the Adhan before their
      morning prayers, in four or so generations. And December 12
      2019 will be remembered for the day that the seeds were well
      and truly sown.

      I think you scoff too much – the BBC does have a brussells correspondent or more – and are building a ‘european HQ’ there . And there is a Turkey correspondent who is tasked with getting a few million Turks to turn up at our border for an NI number ….

      I didn’t see it but I understand Andrew Neill tore Comrade Corbyn a few new orifices and Twitter is full of car crash footages on a par with the great sturgeon evisceration ….

      Talking of evisceration – I get the impression that the shadow equalities minister – one Dawn Petula Butler – hasn’t represented her party in responding to the anti Semitic badness in her party . I’m guessing they’ll put her is a box until the election due to her inability to be on top of her brief .

      Tonight the BBC news is deflecting criticism of Labour by highlighting Muslim allegations against the Tories .

      And of course muslims never attack kaffirs in the name of their ‘mo’ do they ? Or rape whites girls ?

    I notice the big push from beeb (R4 News at 10) is to big up Tories ‘Islamophobia’ as a counter to Labour antisemitism. Suddenly both weigh the same in the scales!
    This is beeb attack prong 3 against Boris (1 being Jennifer Arcuri and 2 being the ‘can you TRUST Boris’ theme).
    What a surprise! (Actually, you can hear the little wheels ticking over in the minds of beeb strategists, before they start turning, so it shouldn’t be!)

      We only lasted the headlines at 10pm BBC1. Absolutely disgusted at the Beeb comparing Labour’s antiSemitism with the Conservative Islamaphobia. If there are Jews in the U.K. shouting Alan’s snack bar whilst killing women and children at a pop concert, the BBC are not reporting it. But I presume the BBC are showing how even handed they are by the Right’s attacks on Muslims. We just used the off button.

        Deborah, same on Sky. I got the impression that their attacks on the Conservative “Islamophobia problem” were getting more frenetic. I assume this is because the only evidence they seemed to come up with was Boris’s attempt at humour poking fun of the medieval dress code in an article written some time ago.

        There is no comparison between these comments and the institutionally anti-semitic Labour Party. I remember when Ruth Smeeth was attacked in some important Labour occasion for daring to point out the anti-semitism, when Corbyn left laughing and joking with the bigot who had attacked her. Clearly Corbyn, despite his protestations, has no problem with anti-semitism in Labour unless it is pointed out. And sometimes, like in the Smeeth case, no problems with it even then.

        The “Liberal” “Democrats” are not in the clear either. Remember Baroness (incredible) Jenny Tonge.

      1; Islam is a religion
      2; Jews are an ethnicity .

      The first can change , if they so wish . The second can`t .

      Yes but the difference is that a lot of voters don’t feel comfortable with Muslims but very few feel uncomfortable with Jewish people.

    Was anyone else struck by the Labour manifesto pledge to inject white hate into the school curriculum over the exploits of the Colonials with no mention of the benefits they brought to the Colonies?

    I believe this is the first chink of his and his Momentum Marxist pals plan being carefully placed.

    He realises that the biggest obstacle in getting the population to swallow his doctrine and elevate him to dictatorship is Patriotism and National Loyalty.

    So this is the opening gambit, to follow will be attacks on the nasty duped citizens who gave their lives in the first and second World Wars etc.

    Corbyn has already shown his tendencies here by his behaviour at such events as not singing the National Anthem and his obvious discomfort at events such as Remembrance Day. Not to mention some of his “friendships” with questionable outfits.

    The most worrying aspect of this is that he has decided that it is right and proper to force this view into the education system making it the default position.

    This is the same totalitarian brainwashing using children that was tried and thankfully failed by a gruesome German leader 80 years ago except that time it was the Jews who were the baddies.

      There a new thread up

      But I think as a result of the Andrew Neill interview we won’t be hearing much more from comrade Corbyn in the next 2 weeks . He really shows his weakness when challenged over detail .

      Comrade Robinson has the next big contact with the comrade on Friday at a leaders debate . It will be interesting to see the treatment he gets from a BBC faithful rather than a proper journo like Andrew Neill .

      Now I’m now fan of ‘honours ‘ but Mr Neil deserves a gong for showing what Comrade Corbyn is really like . We got a glimpse ..

    The BBC are to have the Director of the film that was “unscreened” in Birmingham on in an “extended” interview to let everyone know that the film had nothing to do with the events and that to ban it is racist.

    They just omitted to mention that they funded it so it really feels more like an Ad for the BBC….

    Just watched the Andrew Neil Corbyn interview. Not so much a car crash as a motorway pile-up.

      The Neil interview was wall to wall discussion on the Radio into work. Just having a brew and checking the BBC News site and lo and behold nothing about the reaction (which is news itself) on the BBC……Like I have said 3 times on here Labour will win less than 100 seats….

    Just driven home from the shops and put radio 4 news on and was upset to hear about the terrorist incident on London bridge but all I heard was it seems to be ‘that man ‘ again,! Now I’m inside and put sky on and it seems they are not sure if it’s a terrorist incident and their journalist on the scene says as we have had so many of these incidents it’s not such a shock for the public. Disgusting try telling that to the family of the people,e killed or injured.

      Yes, just had the misfortune of hearing Matthew Wright on TalkSport effectively normalising what happened. Everyone went inside put the shutters down etc, I could be wrong but he might have even used the phrase we’re getting used to it. Shameful.

      Do we actually know that the perpetrator was a Muslim? Do we know who the victims were? Perhaps I am becoming morbidly suspicious but the timing of this terror attack is so reminiscent of the murder of dear Jo Cox, near the end of a campaign, that I wonder. There were several inconsistencies in the evidence about the Jo Cox murder and it could be construed that it was a false flag operation. Could this attack be from the same stable? The left know no moral limits and will stop at nothing to force their agenda on us. Let us wait and see what the BBC and Guardian have to say because they will be the first to be informed by Labour et al. Is it a Muslim with mental issues acting alone or is an evil white supremacist who voted Brexit and is part of an extensive sinister far right organisation funded by demonic forces.
