Midweek thread 4 December 2019

A long week of Far Left BBC bias for those who can stand it . The BBC is trying to make people forget why there is a General Election in the first place and is actively helping the Far Left Labour Party undermine the Conservative message whilst ignoring Brexit .

    Laura appears to assume everyone is either glued to the Labour PR channel or her twitter feed.

    What is she on about?

    I see Laura has come up with the phrase ‘Neil-gate’. Trying to make something out of nothing. Part of the beeb anti-Boris drumbeat that has to be kept going on a daily basis. You have to keep inventing something new to hit Tories with every day, so Laura has thumb-sucked a new phrase, she hopes will stick for a day or two. It’s actually not about the interview per se, it’s about keeping the anti-Boris propaganda flowing.
    We all know where the beeb stand and they know we know. They don’t mind, cos the money with menaces will keep flowing. And Ofcom, all old beeb pals or past employees, will do zilch. They know we know, but their income too, will keep flowing. That’s how the system works.
    So beeb will carry on the little token ‘Very impartial’ act.

    In response to Ian Rushlow; Despairada et al (Start The Week Thread 2nd December 2019).

    Quote taken from the following website. It is worth reading.
    https://www.sikhnet.com/news/islamic-india-biggest-holocaust-world-history

    Irfan Husain in his article “Demons from the Past” observes:

    “While historical events should be judged in the context of their times, it cannot be denied that even in that bloody period of history, no mercy was shown to the Hindus unfortunate enough to be in the path of either the Arab conquerors of Sindh and south Punjab, or the Central Asians who swept in from Afghanistan…The Muslim heroes who figure larger than life in our history books committed some dreadful crimes. Mahmud of Ghazni, Qutb-ud-Din Aibak, Balban, Mohammed bin Qasim, and Sultan Mohammad Tughlak, all have blood-stained hands that the passage of years has not cleansed..Seen through Hindu eyes, the Muslim invasion of their homeland was an unmitigated disaster.

    Why isn’t this history of India being taught in our schools?

      Much more fun vilifying the relatively benign British Raj than exposing the horrors of muslim conquest.

      “These contemporary records boasted about and glorified the crimes that were committed – and the genocide of tens of millions of Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhist and Jainist, mass rapes of women and the destruction of thousands of ancient Hindu / Buddhist temples and libraries have been well documented and provide solid proof of the World’s biggest holocaust.”

      Terror, rape, slaughter, iconoclasm… plus ca change.

        gb, I note that recently the BBC have been suggesting that the great prophet Clarkson (one I do not recognise, btw) has recanted and switched sides to become a Warmista and a Mentalistenviro.

        On the other hand, the cynic (or realist!) might think or say ‘All good media publicity for the latest Amazon broadcast to Christmas audiences’.

        OG, I just hit the OFF button on Jonny Dymond presenting Staccato-Dalek-Style today’s TWatO. The BBC, the DG if necessary, should insist he go back to Broadcaster School to be taught how to do it. That said, there are signs that a large number of the TWatO problems lie with the wider studio team. I may post on that another time.

        How are things in France? Hope you have a happy Gallic shrug for all the hassles that strikes & strikers may be presenting to you in the run up to Christmas.

    As the bBC will use the Neil interview as a weapon against Boris should he come out and say ” I will not be interviewed by Andrew Neil as quite simply. I do not trust the bBC. Trust works both ways after all”

    Or does he stay Schtoom.

    Personally I would put the boot in….maybe right after tonight
    when Boris meets a man with Tourette,s and an older fella who seems a bit mixed up.

    Today I make no apology for MSM OTs, especially if apparently of relevance on a broader scale.

    As with Laura K’s post, I now need to track down what the context is, as it is clear they would prefer it not broadcast more than essential.

    Doesn’t look good for them. I wonder if the BBC will pile in?

    Or will ‘selective professional courtesies’ apply?

    Should get KJM and Ben de Pear to ease up on the Neil storm in a media teacup. Jon and the harpie in charge seem mute, possibly for obvious reasons I have not forgotten.

    And it doesn’t, looks like they have left a long fuse grenade to lob back.

    I’ve been spending a lot of time watching the COP25 lectures on YT. If anybody had any doubt that so-called, ‘Climate Change’ was not a problem for mankind, I would recommend these lectures. I’m actually surprised YT has not taken them down under instruction from the Marxist/Globalists……
    One lecture I really enjoyed (not COP25) was given by Dan Britt, ‘Orbits and Ice Ages: The history of Climate Change’. It is long at 55 minutes but rewarding listening to a qualified Geologist that has worked with cores showing the historical changes in climate. As he says, mankind actually knows a great deal about climate change over the past half a billion years to which he refers to as, “the old days”. “Recent” weather patterns? That’s over the past 10,000 years or so……………..

      G, thanks for putting that up. Interesting.

      I’m just past half-way and the Prof. has outlined how we are in the out period of a recent Ice Age then he’s just said the warming we have ‘recently’ (his definition of recent) enjoyed was caused by deforestation and farming. The immediate problem with that is that in an Ice Age unless science is now totally upside down: 1. you don’t have trees to cut down, and, 2. you don’t have water for irrigation, and, 3. you don’t have grains to grow crops from with the water that you do not have, and, 4. you don’t have good soil until most of the ice has gone, and, 5. you don’t have beef cattle stock to produce your methane and to eat the grass that you grew after you cut down all the trees.

      I think there may be a bit of hole in there somewhere.

      What am I missing?

      Were questions allowed and asked at the end? Or should I stop watching now?

If she professes that Germany had learnt from history, why on earth wouldn’t she have found time or the inclination to have visited this abominable place that her country built. She wasnt high in my estimation before but now I loathe her. Also I heard a while back that Poland was up in arms about the fact that the camp was being called a Polish death camp. See what the germans want to do there.

      pertelote, those #turntolove banners at London Bridge ring alarm bells for me because it’s evidence of the disturbing undercover ‘controlled spontaneity’ approach that the government is adopting after terror attacks:

      —”The British government has prepared for terrorist incidents by pre-planning social media campaigns that are designed to appear to be a spontaneous public response to attacks […] In operations that contingency planners term “controlled spontaneity”, politicians’ statements, vigils and inter-faith events are also negotiated and planned in readiness for any terrorist attack.”

      Thanks to whoever first posted about it here at BBBC, it’s really worth a look.

      There are two things to say about this GWF,

      One, the BBC will probably totally ignore both the evidence in the report and any complaint. Their only mission is to enforce the “doom” view relentlessly.

      And two, I know from experience that my complaint to them about the same devious tactics they used in the recent “Meat is V bad” transmission went straight into a black hole.

    Yuk. Barf.

    You could feel the hostility towards that woman who pointed out that they (the enrichers) lie and that it’s part of their religion to lie to us kuffars if it enables them to do their thing (kill etc)
    This was about how the terrorist got out of jail early.
    She couldn’t remember that it’s called taqqiya (or something like that) and libdem Davey couldn’t get in quick enough to say that at his mosk they are all brilliant and loving.

If the British people put Corbyn in No 10 then they have failed the fitness for democracy test big time and I will regret ever voting Leave. I voted Leave because I thought it was better that those who rule are accountable to those that they tax but I can’t accept Corbyn. So just as the Remainers have refused to accept the Leave vote , I and I hope many others , will refuse to accept the result of the GE if it puts Corbyn in as PM. The Remainers ignored democracy and in effect won by doing so. Two can play at that game.

    The BBC is giving lots of coverage to John Major, saddo ex-politician, as he burbles on yet again about wanting to block Brexit and urges folk to vote against the Tories.
    But the New Statesman’s far more significant declaration that Corbyn is unfit to be PM and the leftie mag’s refusal to endorse a Labour vote has still not been mentioned anywhere.
    And the damning Jewish Labour dossier that confirms Labour’s institutional anti-semitism and Corbyn’s personal anti-semitism has disappeared totally from its coverage.
    As Election Day draws closer, this disgraceful broadcaster appears to be getting even more blatant in its bias and its determination to drive us into the arms of a Marxist, racist regime.
    The BBC and Labour certainly have the same aim – to overturn our democratic Brexit.

    I think many can see us becoming the minority in our own Country if things carry on as they are.
    We are being outbred as well as around 250,000 extra enrichers arriving each year (more like 500,000 but with a mix of some leaving and many indigenous also leaving ((whiteflight)) giving the 250,000 number)

    Maybe around 2045-2050 when we lose control.

    Have you thought that, as a nuclear power, the ‘button’ will be in the hands of our new masters.
    Will they nuke Israel?
    Will they share it all with their Middle East friends.

    France will probably fall before the U.K. and is also a nuclear power.

    This is a quicker route for the enrichers to get their hands on the bombs. Quicker than trying to make their own.

    I’ve not heard any politician speak of this.
    It’s probably racist or something.
    Maybe the bbc will make a programme about this.

    Myles is your typical 20 something pc crazed, virtue signalling libtard. When asked who he would like to win, he stated all of them, but would really like to see a all WOMAN final. At this point I shouted at the tv asking WHY he would particularly like a all WOMAN final !!! Why ??? What difference does it make ??? Why not a all MALE final ???

    It’s just symptomatic of these PC crazed , young lefties in the celeb bubble world that they have to be seen to be virtue signalling non stop !!!!! No one ever pulls them up and asks them why !!!! I would love someone to pin him down and ask him exactly why he thinks a all WOMAN final would be great , just like these climate change retards, he won’t have a bloody clue why !!!! Just that it’s “trendy” !!!!!!!!

    Take tonight’s Newswatch, supposedly the BBC’s way of enabling viewers to hold it to account – when in fact it’s only the BBC holding a vanity mirror up to itself.
    The programme decided to look at viewers’ complaints of political bias in the election coverage – but it chose only to mention allegations of bias towards the Tories. Who knew? Tell the lie often enough and it becomes the truth.
    We really are living in parallel worlds.

      * Reality Klaxon”
      No one should be using the word poverty
      cos the it has a BS official definition
      and cos it is relative it is meaningless
      Even if everyone in the country were millionaires , the stats would say “we have millions in poverty”
      The poverty line in the UK is defined as a household income below 60% of the average.
      This threshold is currently around £195 a week for a lone parent with two children.
      Using this definition there are over 3 million children living in poverty

      What we are thinking off is hardship
      particularly non-self inflicted hardship , that affects your health.

        The best way to nail poverty is by creating jobs.

        The best way to create jobs in a non-manufacturing, service sector-driven economy, is to keep the size of the State small and the taxation required to fund it limited to direct taxation with inflation kept negative.

          @Up2stuff ..jobs ? even so a lot of UK hardship is created by the housing market being BS
          In half of the worlds countries you can rent a simple room for a few pounds/day.
          In this country you can have a job and still nowhere to live.

            I agree, Stew. The only way to fix “the BS housing market” is to use the law of supply and demand and build more houses which .. . er … ummh ….. er … creates more jobs and reduces poverty.

            And if you keep inflation slightly negative, those with capital assets cannot so easily leverage them to buy appreciating assets like houses which then do not appreciate at astronomical rates and also then stops “the BS housing market” being quite so “BS”, does it not?

            😉

            PS: It’s snuff not stuff. Someone has to keep these politicos up to the mark and genuine. 😉 😉

      These types of fact checks really verify the saying “There are lies, damned lies and statistics” .
      I could say that since 1945 the army has lost more that 1 million personnel so, an increase now would not quite replace them. Correct if taken literally but nonsensical as a fact check. What duties the Police perform is just as important. Less activism , more merit based promotions with less focus on “hurty words” might help.

    Jesus Christ.

    Is this the best we’ve got? Adolf Corbyn and Johnson.

    Farage would destroy both of these.

    Australia : Political Correctness watch
    Rugby Australia got comeuppance for caving into the outragebus about their star national player Israel Folau tweeting anti-gay bible verses
    He brought unfair dismissal ..and the RA has just settled for $8m .

    His dad is a pastor , so he tweets bible stuff a lot.
    In April he Tweeted
    Tasmania becomes first Australian jurisdiction to make gender optional on birth certificates”.
    ‘The devil has blinded so many people in this world.
    Repent and turn away from your evil ways.
    Turn to Jesus Christ who will set you free”

    Then quoted 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
    “WARNING Drunks, Homosexuals, Adulterers, Liars, Fornicators, Thieves, Atheists, Idolators HELL AWAITS YOU. REPENT! ONLY JESUS SAVES”.
    Then quoted Galatians 5:19-21,
    and two verses on repentance, salvation and justification, Acts 2:38 and Acts 17:30

    The head of the main sponsor is gay
    Alan Joyce, CEO of Qantas,
    said, “we don’t sponsor something to get involved in controversy.”
    (ie Qantas called for the sacking)

    GoFundMe also punished him by closing his legal donation fund
    .. He then raised $2m in 2 days through the church

    Prison botch watch
    ..Today the revenge rapist guy was convicted
    and it turned out our BOTCHED system had let him out too early

    I could one day make a list
    but basically if you not libmob You get jailed/punished EARLY, eg TR, Goddard, Fireman-Sam man, Trump, people who criticise Anna Soubry etc.

    If you are libmob you NEVER get jailed ..eg the eco-terrorists smashing windows and blocking bridges

    And if you are someone libmob want to virtue signal about you get RELEASED EARLY, or allowed to escape to Pakistan etc.

    This just popped up my screen from last year.
