Start the Week Thread 20 January 2020

THE New Conservative MP for Solihull -Julian Knight- is campaigning to become the new chair of the Parliamentary Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) select committee- replacing a BBC remainer fan called Damien Collins . Mr Knight wants a Commons inquiry into the future of the BBC because of its’ bias ; as well as being ‘out of touch ‘ with those who pay for it . It’s worth watching for signs of the real change this site is looking for .

    The England cricket team are doing well in South Africa in part due to the problem that the hosts have in having to ensure that the team they pitch reflects the diversity of the nation. It is noteworthy that the England team in the last two tests has not included any POCs mainly because the express speedster Joffre Archer has been injured when he is fit he will be an automatic choice. But there is a cloud hovering, Moeen Ali claims he has always been scapegoated for every England defeat when he plays. So much so that he doesn’t want to play for England. It can only be a matter of time before racism is being blamed and Moeen is presented as a victim. Calls to force diversity selection are just around the corner.

      Dt- Unfortunately, this is true – although BEE has not yet been fully implemented on the cricket pitch in SA. When that happens, you won’t see more than one white face (max) playing for South Africa.
      In SA footie, where suddenly the argument is ‘merit’, you won’t be seeing that one face at all, at least when I last looked.
      As you say, the obsession with ‘diversity’ will get to our England team selection eventually and – as it is doing in SA- warp everything.

    Until I read the avalanche of articles in The Guardian today on the reasons for a rise in school exclusions I had no idea it was all down to Boris and his mates causing it deliberately.

    https://www.theguardian.com/education/2020/jan/21/tories-hiding-from-blame-youth-crime-cuts-schools-support

    Apparently kids are so pissed off with the lack of support from his Government they have had to resort to carrying knives to school and stabbing each other and Boris doesn’t give a toss.

    An imported culture of gang superiority, take what I want attitude, intimidation, drug money filtering down from their peers has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    Now we know maybe we should all write to Boris to ask him to stop it!

    Two short but biased videos in BBC Ideas, seem to be part of their new immigration push. Titles are misleading — they’re full on propaganda for why globalisation must be embraced.

    1. “When globalisation makes you feel like you don’t belong.” Aatish Taseer (Author — London, Delhi, New York); father was a Pakistani politician; mother was an Indian journalist; he “doesn’t really feel at home anywhere”.

    2. “What would the UK be like without immigration?” Jonathan Portes (Balliol, Princeton, King’s College; chief economist under Gordon Brown); “only 6% of the UK’s land area is built on”.

    Bubble? Wot bubble?

    • JimS says:

      I watched the Aatish Taseer video. He didn’t seem to be a happy man, he didn’t know who he was or where he belonged.

      Nevertheless he expected all these unhappy people in the world, like him, to put their memories of happier times in a little mind-box and to embrace this new world of the unknown.

      Why? He didn’t provide an answer.

      There has to be a better reason to adopt ‘the new’ than just say “we need change”.

      Aatish Taseer felt confused because of his mixed heritage and because he lived in more than one place. What about those people who have a single heritage and who live in the same place as several generations of their ancestors yet, without their say-so, now find themselves surrounded by people that don’t look like them, dress like them, speak like them or behave like them?

      Why do we all have to become Coca-Cola drinking, McDonald’s eating Muslims?

    Lord Haw, Haw’s letter to BABC staff and colleagues:
    “Second, without question, our values have never been more relevant to the society we live in. As our country enters its next chapter it needs a strong BBC, a BBC that can champion the nation’s creativity at home and abroad, and help play its part in bringing the UK together. In an era of fake news, we remain the gold standard of impartiality and truth. What the BBC is, and what it stands for, is precious for this country. We ignore that at our peril.”

    Just leaving this here.

    “‘Mixed-weight dating’ is a term used to describe a couple with a noticeable difference in body size or shape. Some people see it as a straight-forward description of the couple but others say the phrase is offensive. Steph Yeboah is a plus-size and body positive lifestyle blogger. Ebony Douglas is the CEO of her own marketing and PR agency – and has been in a relationship like this for three years.”

Most of the then EU members postponed this bonus offer until 2011 and so didn’t suffer the deluge which we did. They soon learnt how to play the system and build themselves palaces back home.

Most of the rest of the EU deferred this blessing until 2011, which we could have done, and so the E E’s best and brightest came here to try out our welfare system and tell those back home they could pave the streets of their home towns with British gold.

    In its entirety, the BBC website’s Davos coverage comprises:
    * Being a teen activist is a lot of responsibility
    * Going to Davos is probably reputational suicide (from an environmentalist)
    * What is Davos and is it elitist?
    * Trump visit exposes Davos as a fraud (from a black activist)
    So thank you Faisal Islam, the BBC economics correspondent, who seems to be covering a meeting at Greenham Common rather than the World Economic Forum.

          I am sure there is a study out there, which says… but it does intrigue that certain people or media or institutions on social media do not command the attention (in the form of reactions) commensurate with their supposed influence and often vast exposure.

          For instance, on Facebook Raheem gets a lot. However Graun Environment struggles to reach double figures.

          Maybe there a BBC Actual Reality Check Editor who might ponder this?

      Am I correct in thinking that President Trump has stopped holding press conferences. I know that Sarah Huckabee Sanders stopped hosting them some time ago but I have a vestigial memory that when she left they stopped?

      If this is correct then it could explain why Soapy Sopel becomes so discombobulated at the mention of President Trump.

      Again, to add some colour, it brings to mind the Blackadder episode where when speaking to a couple of actors, he keeps referring to Macbeth rather than the Scottish play. Apparently it’s tradition among actors not to say Macbeth. So every time he uses the word, these thespians have to perform a little ritual.

      I wonder if old Soapy does something similar whenever he hears the words President Trump? Now that would be good entertainment. It would be better than seeing a dog walk on its hind legs or a parrot that can talk.

    I noticed an article on the Beeb’s website a couple of days ago rating the various James Bond theme tunes, but this site had posting gremlins at the time and it wouldn’t accept my comment – so I’ll try again. The article is called “James Bond’s greatest hits – and biggest misses” and lists what they consider the five best and five worst of the theme songs over the years. The one thing I noticed was that there was no mention of any of the theme songs from the recent Daniel Craig films – and then I saw the note at the end of the article that gave the game away. It read “This is an updated version of an article that was first published on the BBC news website in 2008.” So now they’re recycling twelve-year-old articles – can you get any lazier? And what’s even worse, they even opened up a HYS for it!

      A lot of the comments are quite funny in that “ you’ve got to be kidding “ kind of way. I was looking for maxis writing style but it’s limited by his propensity to cut and paste .

    A quite astonishing piece on PM Radio 4 concerning the number of Chinese students paying for courses at UK universities, which is of course a huge export for the UK.

    The BBC lefties are not happy though unbelieveably they claim to be concerned that the Chinese government might be able to restrict freedom of speech! They claim that the amount of money any foreign government spends could leave Universities open to threats of inducement.

    Oh yeah? You don’t seem all that bothered that the biggest external funder of UK universities is the non party state run by the murderous Saudi crown Prince !

    But then Muslims are the Fascists brown eyed boys and cannot be criticised !

    It does make me wonder though, why the BBC has taken against the Chinese government, and it might have something to do with the lunatic Boris the Bottlers decision to allow Huwei to supply 5G equipment in the face of all advice from Western governments concerning the dangers of doing so,
    Ratcheting up the negative publicity about the Chinese Communist government will certainly call into question (rightly so) the judgement of the useless Tories and their cowardly leader.

    I think all of us had had enough of treacherous MPs selling the country out for various reasons, not least personal financial enrichment. Just because we are being sold out to a different country doesn’t alter the issue one iota.

    I see that the ‘world’s finest healthcare system’ has only gone and done it again.

    Clinical negligence payouts last year £2.3 bn
    Estimate of future liabilities £83 bn
    Estimate for legal fees £4.3 bn.

    In part this is because of the long drawn out process before the NHS admits liability.
    But as with all nationalised industries there is no customer focus and no accountability.
    Trying to sweep issues under the carpet and stay in denial is the way to go. As at Shrewsbury, Bristol, mid Staffs.

    But hey, it’s only taxpayers.
    So much for Corbyn’s mantra to ‘fully fund the NHS’.

      Err, I have a friend who has a cast iron case against a chemist for negligence who found the government in most cases doesn’t ever really pay anything for negligence, other to the greedy weasels who also number many of its members.

      Clinical negligence compensation is not viewed as compensation at all, the government has decided it’s income so if you get a nice payout it’ll be taxed at 40% plus NI as well !

      If you are on benefits, because it’s income they will backdate it for 5 years and claim back all payments made, and they won’t pay any more until the money falls below the £6K threashold ! In other words they’ll seize the lot !

      Then on top of that the greedy weasels not only charge the NHS double the fee because it’s no win no fee, but they take 25% of whatever ‘income’ is awarded, plus if you lose you get to pay the other sides costs. If you decide this is a crap deal and pull out you also get the costs !

      Most of this is likely to be things like HIV Haemophiliacs, Thalidomide etc and deceased relatives where the ‘income’ can be spread amongst several beneficiaries.

        Thoughtful – I remember when I was studying medical negligence – at the same time as the NHS killed my dad – the alternatives were floating about of an independent assessor who would deal with claims outside the legal system faster than now and without a ‘ war of the parties ‘ .
        Didn’t get off the ground then – 25 years ago – wouldn’t get off the ground now .

        Any residual respect for the ‘medical profession ‘ was extinguished then – and remains .

    The attack on Chinas government carries on, with a complaint the government has been naming and shaming people who go out in public dressed in nightwear.

    Apparantly this was seen as a gross invasion of privacy, however I can bet that most Chinese like most here would not approve of the idlers who can’t bothered to get changed nor presumably wash / shower / clean teeth etc.

    Perhaps someone here can make sense of this piece of gibberish which was written by the anti White race hating Fascist on QT giving Lawrence Fox a hard time because of his unacceptable and wanton whiteness:

    “It is suggested that a reconstruction of a teacher/educator subjectivity that fosters self-reflection on values and racial positioning, is needed in teacher education ..”

    Apologies if this has already been mentioned.
    Funny how the BBC has (as far as I know), omitted to report these stories:

    Chief executives say UK is top investment target:
    https://www.cityam.com/chief-executives-say-uk-is-top-investment-target/

    A thousand EU financial firms plan to open UK offices after Brexit:
    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-britain-eu-banks/a-thousand-eu-financial-firms-plan-to-open-uk-offices-after-brexit-idUSKBN1ZJ00D

    Strange that? It’s not as if CityAM and Reuters aren’t reputable news sources. Must be an oversight on behalf of the BBC.

    My TV viewing is quite limited but at the weekend I saw a bit of Trust Mr, I’m a Doctor.

    Just out of interest, is there anyone, doctor or researcher, apart from Dr Moseley, that is an ethnic Briton in this programme, or did I just watch the ‘exception to the rule’?
