Start the Week Thread 6th January 2020

This week the Far Left BBC is going to have to start to adjust to a new Parliament without the madness of the last one . Will it stay in denial as a form of Brexit approaches and there is nothing to stop it ? Will the BBC continue to be an extension of Iranian State Radio ?

      You weren’t paying attention; he was reported to be “British”. Like all those other serial rapists we have taken in.

    What is the BBC worried about ?
    “Did Hardtalk do enough to challenge a Trump supporter?”
    Over to You on Sun 1 Dec 2019
    A recent edition of Hardtalk asked
    “How much trouble is Donald Trump in?”
    The guest was Christopher Ruddy, a Trump supporter.
    Listeners* say the interview was not robust enough

    * They mean libmob

    ricky cervais
    “If you win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech,” he advised the stars during his opening monologue.
    “You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything, you know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg.”

    He is absolutely correct !
    Ricky speaks for the people of Britain and the posters of this website .
    Take note Al Beeb, as his speech refers to you and your employees also.
    Will he stand for Parliament ?

    The environmental warnings from 1972 which were *ignored*

    .. ignored cos the Book Limits to Growth has proved to be BS


  7. vlad says:

    Ricky Gervais’ GG speech was largely applauded on social media. I’d like to see it as one more nail in the coffin of Woke Libby – Lefty – Political Correctness. Though he wouldn’t like the association, part of the same amorphous movement as Trump / Brexit / Farage / BoJo, whereby ordinary people say ‘enough!’ to the sanctimonious elites. That includes you, beeb.


  8. Guest Who says:

    This was retweeted by BBC Monitoring.

    Why do I wonder if the reasons were information for those who pay for them here, or encouragement to those the BBC prefer to serve elsewhere?


    • john in cheshire says:

      The racist far-left bbc are missing an opportunity with the iran kerfuffle.
      There’s one of their own, Mrs Ratcliff, in the country and in close contact with members of the regime. So why don’t they use her for on the spot reporting?


  9. Guest Who says:

    The national broadcaster of the UK.


  10. Fedup2 says:

    Toady watch
    The BBC version of reporting the news seems to be paying someone to watch the Iranian State Broadcaster covering the funeral of a dead war criminal in Iran . The Iranians are stringing it out for propaganda purposes and the BBC is swallowing it .

    The BBC must be regretting not having the general as a guest editor for the Christmas period . Meanwhile the cruise missiles are ready to go – which will cause further anti British and American propaganda broadcasting by the BBC .,


  11. Guest Who says:

    At least he’s moved on from looking stupid trying to make out the BBC is trusted and impartial.

    ‘Views your own’ goes Taft.

      Birmingham’s Green Lane Swimming Baths and Public Library.

      I wonder how Huw feels about that?


      • vlad says:

        Ah, but it’s ok when ‘they’ do it to ‘us’. Especially when ‘they’ are the beeb’s favourite invading religion.


  12. digg says:

    The BBC showing much support and solidarity with the people of Iran in their grief over the loss of their dearly loved mass murderer.
    I even notice Dan has brought his black tie out for the occasion.


  13. Ed Hitter says:

    Following on from yesterday’s scant coverage of the police decision to drop its probe into alleged racism at the Spurs v Chelsea match, this morning I checked to see how quickly this story was disappearing down the BBC news agenda.
    Well, on the website it is to be found only as item 12 on the London regional news page and as item 13 on the sports home page.
    This is the way the BBC treats a follow-up story that doesn’t fit its “Englishmen are racists” narrative – for two days this allegation of racism dominated the BBC schedules, but now it has been shown to be a mistake or a false accusation it is barely being mentioned.
    This is disgustingly unbalanced journalism. Tottenham fans as a whole have been smeared by the dreadful BBC and deserve an apology.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Reminds me of the apocryphal story about Brighton and Hove FC being a hotbed of nazi supporters because they all chanted “heig heil” during games .

      The investigation led to a finding that they were actually shouting ‘ seagulls’ – the club nickname .

      If the BBC wants to find whitee being racist – they’ll find it – all part of the anti white project .

      Now back to the Iranian war hero s funeral ..


  14. LastChanceSaloon says:

    “Donald Trump’s belligerent threats to Iran’s cultural sites are grotesque
    Simon Jenkins”

    Ever more leftward goes the Grauniad.
    Ever more defense of the indefensible.
    I understand that Bevan will be exhumed to again compare Europeans with vermin, unfavourably.
    Whilst praising the, whiter than the driven snow, Stalinists and Maoists.
    Stalin and Lenin were, in 1920, occupying dachas “expropriated” from the Romanovs and associated nobility.
    Complete with chefs, gardeners, chauffeurs and all the trappings of the ruling class.
    The insouciant lefties are again targetting anyone not sharing their superiority.
    One century later and the lefties still believe they are entitled to occupy the economic high ground and lecture us.

    BTL it is performing seal time again, Muzzies good, Europeans bad.

    I understand that there will be a special Guardian colour section this weekend celebrating the recent destruction of 800 French churches by those imported to cast multiple votes in favour of Lefty Parties.

    One for Jon Sopel to consider when next airflown for a TDS special:

    BBC Moaning Emole

    How to travel by train instead of plane

    Trains may take longer, but converts say it is a far more enriching experience than flying.

    When Elias Bohun, who lives in Vienna, Austria, finished school, he was desperate to travel around south-east Asia. However, his environmental conscience stopped him booking a flight.

    Instead, the 19-year-old and his girlfriend travelled to Vietnam overland. “It was the most exciting experience I’ve ever had in my life,” he says.

    Read full article >


    Whoops, sorry, he might get a shock if it’s electric. Luckily the Graun has the solution, should time allow…


  16. Fedup2 says:

    Imagine if the new government stopped public sector organisations from buying newspapers …. guardian would go bust in a week….


  17. digg says:

    I see that we are about to be treated by the BBC News to a party political broadcast by Stormzy. That would be Stormzy of stab-vest, gang stabbing culture music and F*ck Boris, F*uck the Tories fame…..

    Ticks all the boxes and sounds like a plan….!

    They really are desperate to get the yoof on board.


  18. Fedup2 says:

    Toady 2

    Becky Wrong Daily – the BBCs preferred candidate for the boss of the BBC/Labour Party – gets the treatment from the Bee Lady .

    Becky can speak without breathing – ( a skill many women have – joke ) bless her. Becky voted for comrade Corbyn to be labour leader so we should thank her for the near extinction of her party . But she wants to finish it off.

    The Bee Lady obviously was under orders not to challenge – her standard technique – so Becky talked and talked . She managed not to revert to the ‘yeah but no but “ preferred manner of speech .

    Becky must have gone on some Labour Party training course on how not to answer a question . She never says “yes” or ‘no’.
    And of course The Bee Lady never got a straight answer

    On the upside she never mentioned the new government or any of the other candidates – although she did mention her flat mate ‘Angie Rayner’ as a ‘superstar’ . Which made Fedup2 laugh out loud .

    Having listened to the nice chat with Becky I’m thinking of investing £20 to join the Labour Party and vote for Becky to ensure at least 10 years of some sort of Right wing government – even a pinkish one .

    Then Sopel talked about the BAFTA’s and why no white chaps have put on a dress and blacked up .


    • Thoughtful says:

      The idiotic Labour supporting Mirror Group owned Manchester Evening News has managed to file Wrong Daily under “The Conservative Party”!

      Wrong Daily is a proven liar, she claims her father worked on the docks, but they had closed shortly after she was born.

      “‘My dad, Jimmy, worked on the Salford docks and I grew up watching him worrying when round after round of redundancies were inflicted on the docks.’
      Ms Long-Bailey, 40, was born in September 1979, meaning she was two years old when the docks were closed in 1982.”

      A former docker who did not wish to be named told The Sunday Times it was ‘impossible’ she grew up watching the winding-down of the docking industry.

      Worse than all of that though is that she doesn’t even deny attempting to mislead the voters in her constituency!


  19. Up2snuff says:

    TOADY Watch #1 – Anyone would think someone important had died

    I get the distinct impression that the BBC are slightly overdoing (slight understatement there) the coverage of the death, funeral and mourning for Qasem Soleimani. Anyone would think a Conservative Cabinet Minister has touched someone on the knee.

    Slow news week?

    Or a helpful distraction from a lack of Impeachment Proceedings against President Trump and a Labour Party leadership contest full of lacklustre candidates?


  20. fakenewswatcher says:

    Fed – I wouldn’t trust Wrong Bailey to run a sweet shop — literally.
    She joins a large and ever-growing, wholly unimpressive, group of socialist ideologues who have declared their candidature. Of those, maybe Keir could be trusted to run a sweet shop?
    Anyway, beeb -especially R4- is going to fill our next weeks and months with wall-to-wall coverage of the Labour leadership election. We will realise again, and again, that THIS IS THE VOICE OF LABOUR. They think we are interested in all that garbage, because this is THEIR party, and they follow every insignificant little blip with rapt attention.
    Racist, Sopel doesn’t like a BAFTA list that’s too ‘white’. He’s not interested in talent or merit, just his own virtue signalling. But I’ll bet that in some athletics race, where all the winners are black, you won’t hear a peep out of Sopel.
    He seems entirely unsuitable to present Toady. Yes, he could do a three minute hatchet job of Pres Trump from Washington, especially as it was always its superficial same. But he sure seems incapable of handling hours on end, without sounding like a (biased) year 11 schoolboy.
    Let loose in a sweet shop.


    • Guest Who says:

      Easy to see why Soapy is safely this side of the pond at this difficult editorial integrity time.

      On matters luvvie, I am luvving Ms. McCartney going ‘full Stella’ lauding a Male clothes horse wearing the same jacket twice… to save the planet.

      No Fiat 500s were valeted I’m the making of this story.


    • Fedup2 says:

      That’s why I’d vote for her . I suppose the field will drop to Lady Nugee , Starmer and Becky – with Becky and Nugee fighting it out in the end .

      I think – guessing – that because McDonnell / Corbyn / momentum took over all the bits of what used to be the Labour Party – Becky will get the job . The signs are there because Mrs Balls hasn’t even put herself up as the ‘sensible ‘ candidate .

      All good for popcorn sales .

      I think the commons is back today so we ll get a few gags ….


  21. Fedup2 says:

    Fake – I only pay attention to it to see what the Enemy is doing . And I see the BBC/Labour as an Enemy – a threat to my way of life .

    As for Sopel – maybe he will be replaced in America in the run up to the presidential election – but whoever takes over will only be the same – except being a darker shade .

    And for films – the BBC can afford to pee away taxpayers money hiring black female directors to make message laden unwatchable uncommercial films for that warm muzzy feeling snowflakes get …


  22. JamesArthur says:

    R4…switch on…Moaning about lack of females and diversity at awards…quote ‘talent is everywhere opportunity isn’t’..funny she then goes on to say they are championing those hard to get to groups…I doubt that includes poor working class boys..

    Then some woman banging on about bad Brexit and Scotland independence…

    I decided this morning that Climate Denier is now the new Brexiteer – the woke will call anyone a CD if they so much as suggest a discussion on climate….

    And yet more about the funeral of a terrorist – like he was a hero…
    BBC- It can’t be disbanded to quickly


  23. Charlie Farley says:

    BBC Stormzy broadcast…potential candidate to replace Corbyn ?….had to turn over ….these days I find it difficult to watch any BBC programmes without seeing the constant bias and end up channel hopping…makes the licence pointless
    BBC Breakfast / The One Show / Country File / Doctor Who all have the same agenda …we are becoming the White underclass that voted Brexit … sorry must shuffle back to my dark corner now !


  24. Fedup2 says:

    The government is following the Nigel Farage idea of having a party on the 31st of January to celebrate our exit from the EU ( not Europe ) .

    I wonder what the BBC coverage will be like .

    I wanted to refrain from saying anything about the Samaritans helpline being busy that night because a number of people I have known have killed themselves ( nothing to do with me – money or girls ) but couldn’t stop myself because of the amount of hate directed at brexiters across the long 3 years or so .

    I think EU flag burning will be in order ….


  25. Thoughtful says:

    A thought crosses my mind this morning of how the media led by the BBC hectored Boris Johnson over the politically motivated decision of the Supreme Court over the prorogation of Parliament.

    Do you believe in the rule of law they crowed – aside from the fact that there is a difference between the rule of law, and the rule of lawyers.

    Now compare and contrast the case of the lying girl in Cyprus. Don’t you believe in the rule of law? Well not if the verdict doesn’t suit us on the left !

    In that case we will feel free to cast all kinds of insult on the judge and the legal system, how wrong it is, how the system is rigged, and how the verdict should be ignored.
    It was the other way around when the verdict was one the didn’t like!

    So perhaps the question should be levelled back at the BBC:

    Don’t you believe in the rule of law ?


  26. Up2snuff says:

    TOADY Watch #2 – Move over Dr Sarah Wollaston, you have competition

    Dr Rosena Allin-Khan MP is interviewed by Martha who gets quite tough with her. Soapy should have been given the task but maybe that would not have been allowed. After covering the Quad Squad he should have been a shoe-in for the interview.

    Dr Allin-Khan is not standing for the Leadership of the Labour Party. But she has announced her intention to stand for the job of Deputy Leader. She observes that as a trained physician she is ready to prescribe remedies. What was wrong with Labour and why did the Party do so badly in the General Election just past and lose three others?

    Dr Allin-Khan displays formidable diagnostic skill and reasoning on Brexit, Broadband and Corbyn (see what I did there?) and is refreshingly light on bashing Tories. It is now no wonder to me why the NHS is in so much trouble.


  27. Jeff says:

    A few of you have already mentioned the (so called) racist chanting at a recent football match.
    When this (non) story first reared its ugly head the Beeb were all over it like a rash.
    At the time it seemed suspicious due to the bemused expressions on the faces of all the other players; they’d clearly heard nothing. Now we know why…
    Of course the complete lack of any evidence wouldn’t stop the usual talking heads from offering us their worthless opinions.
    Naturally Gary Lineker was first out of the blocks, lecturing us about how awful and racist we all are. There seemed to be few dissenting voices and PC luvvies, who wouldn’t be seen dead at a football match with all those horrible working class types, were queuing up to give their opinions on the phantom chants.
    Now what?
    This has been thoroughly investigated by both Tottenham and the police and they’ve both reached the conclusion that absolutely nothing happened.
    I certainly think we need to talk to the player who made the complaint. Was he genuinely mistaken or was there a darker, rather malicious reason, behind his fake claims?
    And then, how about an apology from the BBC? This nonsense headlined for over a week.

    And what about Saint Gary coming out and saying sorry?

    Somehow I don’t think so…


    • Fedup2 says:

      Jeff – maybe they’ve found a new role for VAR – forget the offside armpit / toenail rule – stick a microphone in every seat to record every ‘fan’ ….


    • RobRoy says:

      Jeff, I had to laugh at Chelsea’s statement – ‘just because there is no evidence doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.’ Well that sets a dangerous precedent does it not? So now anyone can say what they the hell they like? We certainly do seem to be in the ‘post-truth’ era.


  28. Guest Who says:

    John Sweeney liked this, but some commenters did not.

    Actually I think this was a bit of monitoring worth noting, though it will become perversely interesting if such as Bowen or Simpson connect any odd dots if this claim is enacted.


  29. digg says:

    I can’t help but notice that the labour leadership candidates are all using expressions like “resistance’, “war”, “on the streets” etc.

    The penny now seems to have dropped that they are going to get nowhere via democracy as they are unelectable so insurrection it is to be…

    Jeremy would approve as he dreams on of his Che Guevara moment to come!


    • Guest Who says:

      Indeed. The word ‘fight’ crops up a lot too.

      Insensitive at best, and risky at this current time when words matter and twitter critics who say are ready to pounce.

      Unless they are safely onside and/or do not have the time or space to mention it.


    • Woolwich says:

      ….and yet Boris’ use of the word “surrender” had many on the left having an attack (can I use that word?) of the vapours.
      On a serious note, when I saw the bearded perma student giving his speech about taking resistance to the streets I was shocked and disgusted. Democracy only works with the losers consent. For the last 3 years already we’ve seen the division and hatred caused when the losers DON’T give their consent, if Corbyn’s leftie acolytes take to the streets I don’t foresee civil war, but I do see pressure cooker events like the Extinction Rebellion incident at the underground station which will ultimately extinguish the lefts appetite for a fight.

        Can’t the BBC diversity department find any non black mice or keyboards?


  32. Up2snuff says:

    TOADY Watch #3 – Greta? Doh!

    In their constant coverage of the death & funeral of Qasem Soleimani and the possible implications for the world, the BBC suddenly indulge in some shroud waving on behalf of the poor overtaxed British road vehicle operator. The price of oil has gone up. (The oil price was climbing at quite a pace some time before the death of Soleimani, and in recent times it tends to increase during northern hemisphere winters because most of the world’s developed countries and large populations are north of the 20/20 Window and they need to keep warm and earning GDP.)

    The BBC only notice the oil price and inflation when it suits them. The BBC’s Economics Editor and Business Editor are both noticeable by their absence most of the time and they make Laura ‘Part-time’ Kuenssberg look like a workaholic.

    The same is true of Roger Harrabin. When you think the BBC might ask questions about whether a massive increase in the price of oil (and consequent increase in price and/or shortages of petrol and diesel fuel) would be beneficial for the planet from a Global Warming and Climate Change point of view and help everyone reach Carbon NetZero, the thought does not occur to Beeboids. The Horrorbin is noticeable by his absence.

    Global Warming? What Global Warming?

    Funny, I thought. I thought funny. It has all disappeared again. How does it do it?

    Nadifa Mohamed on R4

    All I hear is a moan and every woke issues thrown in Windrush, National Front, Grenfell, Cultures, Diversity…EU referendum..apparently Brexit meant we got drunk, trashed the car and drove off like spivs….
    and apparently we are going through a bad time….she has a nice voice but is so woke she must never sleep…
    ” she is staying no matter how difficult the Brexit years are or how unwelcome she is made to feel”

    ‏Well we all know now why she was selected to have this slot…I had never heard of her..and hopefully never will again..


    • BRISSLES says:

      Never forget, without Windrush we would never had Lenny Henry, 🙂


      • The Sage says:

        I somehow doubt it. We need to dispel this Empire Windrush myth.
        The former German troopship only ever made one voyage (in 1948) from Jamaica to Tilbury carrying around 500 Jamaican men and others.
        So surely not everyone of Jamaican descent here in the UK can be related to these 500.


        • BRISSLES says:

          I bet it comes bloody close ! don’t forget, if you put a penny on the first square of a draughts board and double up every time for the next squares the amount runs into millions by the last square.

          500 can spawn thousands in the following 2 or 3 generations, and not forgetting mixed relationships.


  34. Up2snuff says:

    Like many on here, I no longer trust the BBC to report fully or accurately.

    In the case of the British teen in legal trouble in Cyprus, there appear to be things going on that the BBC is being dishonest about. It is the lead item on the BBC Home Page here:

    Is that a keffiyeh that I see before me?

    I think we should be told. To be fair, there could be reporting restrictions on this case but the BBC would normally mention those. They have not disclosed any. And would any reporting restrictions apply only to those within Cyprus, anyway?


  35. Fedup2 says:

    Wow another 35 funerals for the BBC to follow after a stampede at the funeral of the Iranian war criminal . No need to trigger the troll…

      Re EG above
      I heard the following ‘interview’ on Toady at 0810.
      ‘Good morning Ms. wrong-badly, would you care to say what you’d like for 15 minutes, and however inane it is I promise I won’t interrupt’.

      We then had basically a combination of whitewash and weasel words. All meaningless but don’t be fooled. She is every bit the hard marxist that Uncles John and Jezz are. Class warrior, politics of envy, anti-business, blaming the market economy for each and every example of perceived injustice etc etc.


  41. digg says:

    Now the BBC spreading it’s enlightenment following the Christmas Supermarket Sales Figures and the BAFTA’s…

    Large supermarkets had a sluggish time and according to the BBC Economic Expert rolled on its all down to….

    1. Brexit
    2. The Election Result
    3. Climate

    Oddly the only stores that came through well according the the BBC were of course Lidl and Aldi, Both German which would seem to blow away point 1 above.

    Then onto the BAFTA’s, apparently according to the BBC the leading contenders are all disappointingly non-diverse and too male and pale however more watchable they were in comparison to the more woke variety.

    So if we hadn’t voted for Brexit and the Conservatives and we all gave up meat and driving etc. and all went to see films we didn’t like it would have been a different story and the Supermarket Shareholders would have had a Happy New Year and loads of second rate producers would have been catapulted to stardom!

    Drip, Drip, Drip….


  42. Sluff says:

    Did anyone else spot the hilarious latest edition of ‘Spot the Irony’ on the bBBC?

    On Toady this morning just in case we haven’t yet got the message, ‘Thought for the Day’ was given over to the Iranian situation, all for peace, how wonderful Iran is, rich history blah blah, all rather pacifist and supportive in nature.

    The presenter was…….errrr…….an Iranian female christian (is she now a CofE bishop?) who escaped from the country to the UK in 1980 i.e after the Ayatollah had taken over!!!!!!!

    Well, if you think it’s so wonderful over there, luv, and you think the UK is ghastly and Trump evil incarnate, you could always go back. What’s stopping you?


  43. john in cheshire says:

    Isn’t it interesting, iran has a rich history and culture but by all accounts from the lefties we English have no rich history and no culture of our own.

    I don’t suppose the racist far-left bbc mentioned:
    1. Having had something resembling an empire two and a half thousand years ago doesn’t equate to having a civilisation or a culture. Even if the iranians are still behaving as though it does.
    2. The Persians had their arses well and truly kicked by the Greeks, who did have a civilisation and a culture.
    3. They then had their arses kicked by the muslims who have neither civilisation nor culture.

    I see that 1917 won Best Picture at the Golden Globes. Is that because it has no:
    1. Climate change narative *
    2. No feminine heroine **
    3. No tortured BME ***
    4. No TRANS Message ****
    Or is it because it is
    1. A good old fashioned war story. *****
    2. Contains WHITE MALE Actors ******
    3. No “your all losers if you aint leftys” message. *******
    4. UK beating the Europeans *********

    You see the BBC dont get it. They pour Tens of Millions into message programmes each with thier narative. Its easy they arent accountable its money extracted from the population they are not answerable to anyone and will continue until the funding is cut off.
    If the BBC had made 1917 ……well they wouldnt would they.

    * plus plus….I havent seen it so im guessing

      Lady Brooke starts her Twato at 1300 by announcing the headlines. Second item? – Golden Globe awards. Her statement? “No people of colour”. What’s white if its not a colour? I ask myself. But the point is not missed that our Black/Asian Broadcasting Corporation needs to spread the glad tidings on everything, “….of colour…” like smearing Marmite everywhere and over everything. Little understanding that we should not want to reduce the black/asian unemployment any further by using up our meagre stocks (roughly 13% of the population) on broadcasting and advertising. They should get real jobs.

        G, a lady with an unpronounceable name this morning on Sky, was reviewing the Globes, and yes the question of diversity was discussed. She agreed that the voting panel couldn’t be made to put their cross against a black actor, but I would say there may be hundreds of black actors in the business, but I can count on 2 hands the number who are worthy of an acting award, the rest really aren’t that good.


      • JamesArthur says:

        It was a bit obvious wasn’t it – woman and diversity ….and they had a BAME chap/director on who has been cast in a movie then complains he knows he is only a token BAME…WTF. You can’t win here. They never seem to ask how many White people are in Bollywood or why no Chinese or Japanese.

        BAFTA now known as Black African Female Trans Awards

        This was followed by a feature ‘ Green heros’ or something, where we are again bombarded by woke climate change propaganda and a piece by BBC’s Roger Boulton? who is going to tell us how he is reducing his carbon footprint..
        I would just like to hear a real balanced discussion on potential causes and solutions to any climate change that we may or may not be facing as a result of man made activities – doubt we will get it on BBC
        Close BBC and think how that will reduce the carbon footprint.

        G, at the risk of betraying my artistic or autistic or snufftastic or pedantic side, I would point out that white is every colour mixed and true black is the absence of any reflected light from a surface.

        However, I’m glad that you picked up on that moment. I was going to post a three part TWatO Watch but you have taken care of #2 admirably.

        Here’s an idea: was it Martin Luther King who said he longed to see the day when people would look beyond the colour of a persons skin to see their character instead?

        Perhaps MLK’s statement could be printed in a suitably sized font and put on wall of BBC studios above and underneath the studio clocks? It was about time the old analogue clocks were replaced by digital ones anyway as the TOADY team and other Beeboids still have trouble reading the time. Get both jobs done at the same time.

      Halifax……………..Or it could be that its a “proper” film that adults want to watch. (I haven’t seen it either)

      One where there are no comic book super heroes fighting fantasy creatures, y’know, the sort of thing we used to watch at Saturday morning pictures, but are now made for kids to 30 year olds.

      I don’t have Netflix, but they seem to be doing well because they are making drama films for the older gap in the market.

    Labour guy recovers from illness
    so can be involved in leadership bid.


  47. StewGreen says:

    Labour guy’s QC gets illness
    so the Labour guy can’t be involved in his trial right now

    So the trial of Lord Ahmed’s child sex offences is postponed to July 2020 due to “illness” as his QC Mr Imran Khan is hospitalised
    Suffering from the Keith Vaz under investigation and can’t worm my way out of it syndrome.


    • StewGreen says:

      That’s not all


      • StewGreen says:

        I wish Jeremy Vine would stop banging on about all this.

        On no he doesn’t he’s banging on SPECULATING about “Trump will destroy Iranian archaeology”

        The libmob know that by creating hate-topics like Trump/Brexit and banging on about them, they are taking the attention & light away from other issues.


        • Northern Voter says:

          Hopefully Tony Robinson would be there and be destroyed as well, win win.


      • JamesArthur says:

        Nothing on BBC….too concerned about some Iranian who they had never heard of until a few days ago…


    • Fedup2 says:

      Hope they took his passport away . Or maybe going for the Lord Janner defence …maybe he should get the QC who beat a fox to death – he probably needs a few bob for his defence if the RSPCA go for him ( which of course they won’t ).


  48. AsISeeIt says:

    If a tree doesn’t fall in the forest – but a black man says it does…?

    As predicted by more than one of us hereabouts : “Antonio Rudiger: Tottenham find no evidence of racism towards Chelsea defender”

    In fact BBC, despite your headline, the Met Police have closed their investigation – it’s the cops that have the final say in this, no?

    Not that facts need cloud the issue. The race industry and right-on journos are doubling down because if we let facts rather than feelings determine our laws that may create the wrong climate. You see we humans do control the climate. Well, the climate of branding Britain racialist at every opportunity.


  49. StewGreen says:

    ITV has the TV Luvvies awards tonight
    .. as usual they have expressed the usual angst about not having enough special victimhood group nominations
    …. Though the BBC will be rooting for it’s imported drag show format
