    Hey Halifax – you’re second as the mod doesn’t count !.

    As for a prize – try watching the Royal Institution Christmas Lecture from Thursday where they had a truly distasteful segment on the probability of a a volcano erupting – and even had a working model .
    Absolutely beyond bad taste .

    Having been busy, I haven’t read through all of the previous thread so excuse me if it has been mentioned previously. I was pleasantly surprised by the PM’s Christmas message. Not OTT or sickly sweet but acknowledging those who must work over the holiday period. The armed forces thanked. Jesus Acknowledged with no liberal “interfaith-diversity” pontificating. And he boldly highlighted the persecution of Christians throughout the world. Something I have heard very few world leaders do. It was brave in our present sociopolitical climate.

      The BBC ignored Bojos comments in accordance with its’ anti Christian policy . Bit like the slaughter of Christians going on in Africa at the hands of followers of evil Islam .

    There’s a shockingly agenda-driven environmental piece currently on the news page of the BBC webshite – “Climate change: migrant species do well in warm and wet UK in 2019.

    The piece details how many of the rarely seen Painted Lady Butterflies were seen this year, but for the Natterjack Toad it was a very poor year. All well and good, for yearly conditions are never entirely equitable for every species, but since when have migratory species, such as the above mentioned butterfly, been called ‘migrant species?’

    The article mentions the phrase ‘migrant species’ several times’ but surely the BBC must know that migratory species can in no way be likened to the cause of migrants. Oh wait, this is the BBC…

      Migratory.
      Many of these organisms are better described as invasive species.
      Which are subject to eradication progams in many locations.
      The problem is that the BBC and others claim that that the most destructive species, aliens, are part of the same species.

      In my opinion Westerners should declare themselves a quasi-new species and declare it is our intention to become an indisputably new species and should use genetic manipulation to achieve this goal as soon as possible.

      There will then be no reason to tolerate the destruction caused to our advanced societies by those, less fit biologically, and just eradicate them from our lands.

    Muslim apostate Amir Khan, who claims he is still a Muslim, yet annot be so has been getting some stick for posting a photo in front of a Christmas tree with his family from real Muslims.

    It’s not reported by the BBC, but how is it that our massively biased media cannot call out this intolerance from the Muslims as some ‘ism’ or fauxbia?

    It would appear that according to the Fascist Left only the hated white people can be guilty of one of their myriad of wholly invented transgressions designed to protect Labour supporters.

    Quite shocking to see the double standards openly displayed by people who clearly hate us.

    Maybe we should all wake up to the fact that we (the people of this nation) are not being informed as we should be- Immigration was one major issue clearly displayed throughout Brexit, yet never once honestly spoken aboout through Westminster or the media especially not the BBC.
    Chances are that you probably haven’t heard of the UN Migration Pact? If you haven’t, you’re likely not alone but you may want to ask yourself just why. Not surprisingly, in most Western countries, there’s been a virtual media black-out on the topic. The pact is nothing less than a brazen attempt to expunge the idea of the traditional nation-state, and acts as a blueprint for a 3rd world invasion of Western countries. In short, the pact seeks to normalize mass migration, and to establish migration as a global human right. It will allow migrants from all over the world to be able to go where they want, when they please, and for whatever reason. Madness-but there is more-
    The pact claims that 244 million people world-wide wish to migrate. Some claim the pact is not legally binding:however, many of its critics say that the current form of the pact is a merely stepping stone towards implementing these policies as international law. Signatory nations will de facto hand over their sovereignty to the un-elected and unaccountable United Nations. Effectively, these signatory nations will be giving up their “nationhood”. As Trump has famously said, “Without borders, we don’t have a nation.” And, for the countries who signed the pact, they will no longer have borders.That said the USA will not sign up to such a pact.
    Further more not only does the sinister UN Migration Pact seek to impose mass migration on the native populations of western countries, but it also seeks to silence any and all dissenting voices. The pact actively seeks to limit any speech that’s critical of migration. With over 79% of European citizens wanting tighter control of Europe’s external border, the only way this supranational agreement can be directly imposed on people of western nations is if the people aren’t completely aware of it. Unfortunately, because the mainstream media hasn’t been reporting on it, many remain in the dark about the UN Migration Pact. For it to be successful, the UN pact must remain hidden from popular view. Come Boris step on the gas-halt unwanted immigration immediately-no nonsence-return all who endeavour to come to the UK illegally and make sure the world knows where we stand on this issue-otherwise we shall drown and be destroyed.

      Tarien- I feel this is the most perfect example of our MSM, spearheaded by our Public (interest) Broadcaster, ensuring an almost total ‘black-out’ of coverage of a critical issue.
      I remember posting on here that, while we were all focused on Brexit and what the EU was doing, we were not seeing the Migration Compact, and what the UN was doing. There is a LINK, of course – the EU passed the necessary resolution on the Rights of Africans in Europe in March, 2019. This too, has received no publicity in our media. The big con for the gullible was that signing the Compact was OK, as it was not ‘legally binding’, but it looks like the EU will do the dirty work for them.
      I remember hoping that Ms May would NOT sign the compact, something I would possibly have expected of a Labour PM. Unfortunately this lady, possibly the most overpromoted Cabinet Minister and then Prime Minister in our history, put her pen to paper. After all, had not that nice Ms Merkel eagerly signed?
      Your appeal to Boris is excellent. Will he have the courage? With us ‘leaving’, it would be now or never. The same media who kept the Compact and our signing, nice and quiet, will attempt to tear him to shreds. And Gina Miller will have something to rush to the ‘Supreme Court’ about.

        Thanks Fakenewswatcher, in respect to that evil, heinous individual Miller, who should have had her residency in the United Kingdom evoked long ago-her country of birth call for her-please Guyana invite this unimportant creature back to your country and enjoy the fruits of her interference.
        Martin Howes QC wrote of the Supreme Court: “This is rule by politicised judges which contradicts and undermines the rule of law”
        For a top barrister and Head of Chambers to make the statement he does in this speech is almost unprecedented. Let us hope that,, particular Court set in motion by that T Blair individual will soon be defunct. Britain has its own Court of Justice, far above that so called Supreme Court. OK enough of that !

        But first “kill the lawyers”.

        In this context the Supreme court has no standing in a parliamentary democracy, for the simple reason that parliament is supreme in UK, and not lawyers- see David Starkey. This illegitimate court has been foisted on the the UK by T Blair.

        Boris Johnson has a huge majority. If he so wishes he can simply wipe out the supreme court, and while at it, reform the HoL, which is where this “supreme court” sits. It will be washed out with the detritus that has collected over the last 40 years of EU colonial rule.

    I think the remedy to this nonsense will come with the second term of President Trump who, I’m sure , has a target list including the democrat FBI and the UN – which if I recall is chiefly funded without American money .

    I bet if all those small economy countries had to pay their way we wouldn’t see the bloated UN in its current form for too long .

      I hope you are right, Fed. Even as we ‘speak’ the very problem (uncontrolled migration) that we hope President Trump will attend to, may mean he doesn’t get a second term, as Democrats (I refer only to a party, not a principle) try to move as many ‘migrants’ as possible into key ‘rust-belt’ states that he will need for victory.
      I remember when Ronald Reagan was (Republican) Governor of California. Now California, with the biggest number of Electoral College votes by far, is Democrat, and will always remain so. We both know why.

    Switched on local news just as Look North was reporting about Guy Martin who used to race motorbikes and has some very enjoyable little programmes on ITV and possibly Channel 5. I believe he is in trouble regarding a driving licence. It may be the short piece of film of Guy walking along may have been recent, but as you know I don’t trust the BBC. Apparently Guy is autistic and is ready to believe what he is told. (Dare I suggest that applies to a lot of remoaners?). But the Guy in the short bit of Look North film, did not look like the Guy we are used to seeing on our screens. He did look unworldly tonight and as though he wouldn’t have understood what was happening. Didn’t seem a very nice thing for the BBC to portray one who appears regularly on a competitor’s channel in that way.

        So guy had been given an Eire HGV licence and he’d sent that to the DVLA to get the HGV added to his UK licence
        So the DVLA said that Eire licence is a forgery.

        SO I agree it was a waste to prosecute him when he seemed to believe it was a genuine licence.

    SPIDERWOMAN RETURNS! See it tonight, only on BBC TV News at 6pm! Starring: Lady Hale and her political ‘Supreme Court’. Produced by Anthony Blair and Directed by Lord Hall Hall.
    I’m sure many of us here will have been pleased to see that impartial paragon of Justice, Lady Hale, with much publicity from our impartial broadcaster, for her triumph over the PM and 17.4 million voters, with plentiful footage of her supporters doing demos, etc. PLEASE SUPPORT THIS SHOW AND THE PRINCIPLE OF EXTORTING MONEY WITH MENACES.
    I’m sure that, although Lady Hale is scurrying off the scene (ostensibly), we will be hearing more from this ‘court’ as soon as Gina Miller has prepared her next act. I’ve become quite the arachnophobe, as I listen for scurrying in the undergrowth…(Although she was careful not to repeat the Obama retirement mistake of telling us she was off to her ‘war room’.)

        from Coventry, yes they did but the BBC were a bit slow in doing so. I had an e-mail from a friend to tell me about it so I went on the BBC web-site to check. It wasn’t there at first but eventually it came up; first under Europe under NEWS, then it migrated to a full item on the NEWS Page. Don’t recall whether it made it to headline on the BBC Home Page at all.

        It was only mentioned on the web-site for about two days.

        I did hear a reference to it on both The World at One (BBC R4, TWatO) and The World Tonight (BBC R4, TWiT). Can’t say if TOADY spent any of their three hours on it.

        Hope your family, if they have relatives in the ‘quake area are OK.

                In tribal areas it is possible to convert to Muslim (say to get a government job) and then convert back later ..it’s not see as full apostasy.

    The BBC, now lacking any point in promoting their regular anti Brexit propaganda, has turned its full attention on the climate. I suppose something had to fill the vacuum…
    This has reached the point of full on obsession with them. It’s no longer “news” it’s blatant brainwashing.
    This morning they began by showing me giant wind turbines. Christ, these monstrosities are massive. Each one looked like the size of the bloody Shard. Apparently some green loonie wants to build millions of these hideous carbuncles and spread them across the country. Lovely!
    This was followed by a report about the forest fires in Australia. They questioned some poor random woman, standing looking at the inferno, and asked her if she thought this catastrophe had anything to do with burning fossil fuel. How the hell is she supposed to know? …but of course she gave the right answer.
    They then had a segment about the melting ice cap…you know the sort of thing, lots of film of crumbling icebergs and that bleedin’ polar bear sitting on a sliver of floating ice.
    Then, just in case we were particularly dense and hadn’t received the message, they showed us the floods in Blighty and we finished with a cheery piece about the typhoon in the Philippines.

    We joke about this but I was talking to my Venezuelan friends, which I never normally do cos it is too heartbreaking ..like what am I supposed to do ..send the whole country medicines
    ..and I have actually lived in African countries even more screwed up.
    Revolution will come eventually

    Anyway their Chavez supporters just believed in the Socialist dream and many still do blaming disfunction on US conspiracy.
    They are dreamers, like a cult
    But I realised that is the same for metroliberal overlords
    ..they are the same they really BELIEVE their dreams that Greta is a prophet that Trump, Brexit and Boris are devils etc.

    For both sets there is their dreamworld vs the reality we know
    , but they can’t see the reality cos they are trapped in a cult.

    They even have the same mind control
    We have the BBC and London bubbleworld media

      Just what is it about Nadiya Hussain that has caused you to be quite so obsessive in your hatred of her? I haven’t really paid much attention, but she seems to have an attractive personality, is well liked and has carved out a successful career; winning many accolades along the way.

      So what could it be…

      Ah, yes; “HUSSAIN”.

      Nuff said.

        Maxi old chap, I don’t normally reply to your contributions but as it is Christmas
        You seem hung up on the Hussain..well actually no , the reason for the incredulity is that she has been around for a relatively short time, cushioned by the BBC, her cooking is limited – she is not a trained chef or baker and exactly what her contribution to broadcasting is – I am still unsure.
        As for well liked (by whom? the BBC) – is that a qualification for an MBE? Won accolades (from who? the BBC) carved out a successful career (within confines of BBC)

        Now to be fair there are many people who get awards undeservedly but in her case there is without doubt a huge element of virtue signalling….she is a product of the BBC pure and simple and everything she has done is for herself..

        As ever shouting racist at people who are not racist is a dehumanising thing. People here wouldn’t complain loudly if Raheem Kassam got an award, nor if American conservative Thomas Sowell was awarded.

        In Britain there are perhaps many unrewarded non whites who deserve awards like soldiers or people working undercover against Islamic terrorists, plus there may be some unknown people who have helped police catch grooming/raping gangs from their own community, but there seem to be a risk to such people if their role becomes public.
        There may be some surgeons or scientists who deserves recognition
        but giving an award to someone who is fairly newish and already has a massive public platform seems unfair.

    Started to watch Mary Queen of Scots on Sky. Given up after 20 minutes as it was like watching a cast of the United Nations. Adrien Lester is a fine actor , but as Lord Randolph, an Ambassador in the court of Queen Elizabeth ???? According to records Randolph was white, but here is what the director says…………

    “The film, which is written by Beau Willimon (“House of Cards”) and based on a book by John Guy, stars Saoirse Ronan in the titular role as Mary Stuart and Margot Robbie as her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I. It also showcases a number of actors of color in prominent roles in both Mary’s and Elizabeth’s courts, including decorated Shakespearean actor Adrian Lester, who is black; he portrays Elizabeth’s ambassador to the Scottish court, Lord Thomas Randolph.

    Rourke told TheWrap that colorblind casting a period drama was important to her, because of the many years black and other people of color were left out of such portrayals and films.

    “I was really clear, I would not direct an all-white period drama,” Rourke said. {snip}

    There were people of color in England during that time. According to the U.K. national archives, Elizabeth would have employed black servants and musicians, and even had a black chambermaid, though seeing a person of color as high up as Lord Randolph would have been improbable”

    Film makers are taking all the enjoyment out of watching a movie. Few people have little intensive historical knowledge, but most of us realise that the UK 500 years ago was 99.9% white, and its crackers to make us believe otherwise.

      BRISSLES,
      We might think it fairly important for real people in films and tv to be played by actors who even slightly resemble them, but it doesn’t seem to be a concern shared by film makers. I watched the film Trumbo on telly a few weeks ago – the bloke playing John Wayne was nothing like him. Kirk Douglas was a little closer. At least neither of them was played by Idris Elba.
      I see the BBC has made another Profumo dramatisation called The Trial of Christine Keeler. Now, I don’t know what the real drug dealer Johnny Edgecombe looked like but in the 1989 film Scandal he was played by singer Roland Gift, who is rather light-skinned. In the new BBC series he is played by Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, who compared to Gift, looks – well, as black as a Top Hat. They can’t both be right.
      Just for the record, if I ever attain enough notoriety to be portrayed in a film, I have a rather sallow complexion. . .
      Also, I recently read How It Happened Here, Kevin Brownlow’s account of the making of his and Andrew Mollo’s film about Britain under the Nazis. In it, he remarks that casting faces appropriate to a film’s period setting has become a lost art. No kidding!

        I don’t think it’s particularly important that dramas depicting real events get every tiny detail spot on about the person they’re portraying, but you want them to (at least) get their race right.
        No one would think it appropriate to have (say) Brian Blessed playing (maybe) Nelson Mandela. There’d be a bloody outcry. Can you imagine The Guardian’s response if Christopher Ecclestone turned up portraying Desmond Tu Tu?
        Yes, I know we suffered Ben Kingsley’s portrayal of Ghandi, but he’d never get away with it now.
        Keeler’s drug dealing, pimp, sometime boyfriend, was black, though what particular shade I can’t remember. I don’t think it’s important. I do think It would be odd though if he was played by Kenneth Branagh!
        These days on the Beeb they deliberately and inappropriately slot BAME actors into roles that are white. It’s just wrong. The worst example I can think of is the ghastly Dan Snow’s depiction of The Battle of Hastings. William’s main lieutenant is black…according to the Beeb. Obviously utter nonsense.
        Give the BBC a few years and they’ll have Idris Elba playing Winston Churchill.

      It is constantly claimed that there were significant numbers of black people in Elizabethan England, so much so that steps were taken to try and stop their ‘troublesome behaviour’. There is next to no evidence for this and in reality there were probably no more than a few dozen. In the 16th Century, the description of ‘black’ was not used in the same way as the present. The most widely used term for non-whites was ‘blackamoor’, however, the emphasis here is ‘moor’, meaning Moor, muslim and arab. In many cases – although the overall numbers are still very small – these would be North Africans, for instance Moroccans, Algerians and Tunisians, including Christian slaves who had escaped or been liberated. Blackamoor does not imply black, as in negro or sub-Saharan.

      Brissles, I too hate the film Mary Queen of Scots for similar reasons. In my view, multiculti fantasy peddlers like Josie Rourke are a menace to our culture. Not only is she completely wrong-headed about major issues like race, she gets many minor details wrong too. For example, there is a scene with a soldier who is introduced as being from John o’ Groats and who speaks only Gaelic. I have noticed before that some arty-farties from south of the border have the mistaken belief that the further north you go in Scotland, the more Gaelic it must be. The fact is that John o’ Groats was never Gaelic-speaking. On the Caithness coast they spoke Norn (Viking dialect) till the 15th century, then Scots, then standard English today. As well as that, John o’ Groats was always the tiniest of places inhabited by not much more than one family. So this figure of a Gaelic-speaking fighting age male from John o’ Groats is preposterous. The sad thing is that most people get their ideas of history from films rather than history books. With irresponsible, ideological, lazy film-makers like Josie Rourke having no respect for history or the truth, our youth is quite simply being indoctrinated.

          The English language originated in darkest Africa over 1000 years ago.

Happily in 1997 Tony Blair imported hundreds of thousands of Black and Asian people to improve and enrich the extremely poor version of the English language being spoken by the British up to that point in time.

    We ought to consider honouring our intermittent drive-by snarker Maxi.

    Afterall, he [preferred pronoun assumed] handily explains something for us, something which has had some of us scratching our heads in bemusement.

    Well, in fact two associated recent phenomena.

    Suddenly popping out of the bushes in response to local confusion hereabouts as to how come a dodgy amatuer cake baker who happens to wear a tribal headscarf gets to visit Buckingham Palace to have a medal pinned to her hijab, our spasmodic friend provides the clue.

    I quote: “Just what is it about Nadiya Hussain that has caused you to be quite so obsessive in your hatred of her?”

    The obvious implication – you think there might be something wrong about this unusual turn of events therefore you’re all racialists. The sine qua non for a Leftist to denigrate anything and anyone in the slightist degree conservative.

    That’s why the situation is created – to provoke negative response (or rather dare anyone to utter any negative response) so as to condemn.

    So it is with all the recent hitherto inappropriate stunt casting (cf Doctor Who) in movies, drama, tv shows, advertising etc. You think there’s something amiss – you’re a bigot of some form, obviously.

    The answer, poke your head over the parapet and have it shot off, or suffer in sullen silence – until some secret ballot – well, so long as that option remains available.

    Not any more.

    For about five years, the public have been shut out.

    In the good old days, before AA (ie. before Anita Anand), the public on Any Answers often used to contribute more wisdom on the questions put to the Panel, than the Panel itself had done the night before. I wonder if that is why the Beeb has cancelled the public follow-up to ‘The Correspondents’ Look Ahead’ ?

    The programme last night was trailed as “Our hard-working Editors and Senior Correspondents ……. ” but the panel included the BBC Economics Editor.

    He has been noticeable by his absences from work since joining the BBC in the Spring of this year.

    Bring back Steffie!

    O/T but ignored by the bBC (because it is anti-British).

    Please read this excellent short summary (from September) of the defence sell-out under May and Johnson.

    Is it too late?

      island – astonishing how little of the really important stuff ever gets mentioned by our Public Broadcaster and other MSM. Yesterday we made the same observation about the UN ‘Migrant Compact’ where, once again, one wonders whether it’s too late.
      Keeping us in the dark seems to be the order of the day. And the fingerprints on it always seem to be remarkably similar…
      We also wait to see whether government tackles the Human Rights Act, which Prof Richard Ekins says in ‘The Telegraph’ today, is “driving judicial interference in parliamentary democracy and responsible government.” (See the article “Human Rights Law is ‘distorting democracy’.”)
      Obstructing governments from taking action in immigration, border control and defence, is a result of the actions of the EU court. And we are waiting and watching.

    Strange how the MSM exhibits false news innocence over the award of certain honours.for instance – the ‘resigned ‘ DPP getting a Dame hood ? .

    Surely part of the promised retirement package to go quietly . If I’m right now that she has the gong we will hear a bit more from said Dame about being a ‘ victim ‘

    By the way – if you’re a bit of an anorak like me and like a political Twitter is repeating the segment of an Andrew Neil show where he asks Angela Raynor – labour PM in waiting about ‘ corporation / capital Gains tax . ‘ it’s 2 minutes of comedy – which is about the most funny stuff you’ll see on the BBC this christmas – if ‘ Nish ‘ has anything to do with it .

      The Raynor snippet perfectly illustrated the sorry state of the political interview. Raynor was skewered yet kept on spouting dog whistle slogans like a demented soul regardless – got to make the most of the screen time.

      The argument being unwinnable it was more a case of get a sticking plaster for being ill prepared and/or incompetent by talking over the interviewer – defending the vote – there being no hope of winning over thinking support.

      It’s worrying that there are places in the UK where the likes of Raynor will ceaselessly win. This reminds me of the old rosette on a sheep joke.

    Thank you very much for that, you’re very kind. I had stories, pictures etc direct from relatives, I didn’t ever rely on the msm, as I said I boycott the bbc. Everyone is fine, though property isn’t unfortunately. Where we go, Durres, was one of the worst hit with over 50 dead, places I know well are just gone, very upsetting. Only 2 people I know, 2 Romanians from work, ever spoke to me about it, so I know it wasn’t extensively covered here. They can’t link it to any of this climate change nonsense so aren’t that interested probably.

    “Michael Howard: Judges sometimes ‘distort’ the law to reach result they want”

    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-50933535

    Of course the BBC tells us that the judges such as Lady Hale are impartial… but mentions nothing about the fact that Lady Hale herself gave a presentation saying that she “crushes PM”

    The common Purpose filth at the BBC are so full of lies and distortions it really beggars belief they way they steal money through the licence fee.
