The EU Free Thread 31 January 2020

It has been 1316 days since the EU referendum . In that time – and before – we have witnessed the biased Far Left BBC running anti brexit stories every day all the time; and it has failed . It may show the decline of the BBC on shaping and influencing public thinking and public life . Let’s celebrate a new sort of Freedom .

      Can I echo that sentiment . There is a weather forecast being broadcast on Twitter warning of flooding in London on Friday because of Remainer tears . Much sadness at BBC HQ.

          Good one – I’m glad you spotted the ‘dryness’ in the heading . Perhaps if the trade deal and stuff fails he can escape fully from their grip – but every one knows the krauts need out trade more than we need them .

          I’m waiting today – for even more good news – the democrats failing to nobble President Trump again . That really will make it a Good Friday .

          I’m preparing for the BBC gloom fest that will the ‘leaving special ‘ tonight and trying to produce the traitor . ‘mouths’ the BBC will be giving airtime too- any which will be duly recorded here .

            We’re not free yet.

            Remainrers, the BBC and Brussels have a year for more stalling, warnings of disaster for the UK, and threats of embargo, unless we kowtow. They have a year to think up more rules in the EU book our PMs signed us to, without knowing what they were doing, which may carry more financial penalties. Who knows what bags of worms will come up.

            It will be up to our PM and MPs to tell them to stuff it.

            The jury is still out if B Johnson’s heart is genuinely with Brexit. So far he has signed up to Huawei, forsaking our genuine allies, and also signed with the EU’s HS2 link. £100bn and counting, at over £1bn per mile, for a link that was part of the EU transport structure.

            Its up to Nigel Farage to keep the Remainer Con party honest.

        David Starkey raises a point I had never considered – that the EU is a collection of defeated nations, at least the important ones. A defeated nation has to come to terms of its defeat, something akin to PTSD for nation as a whole. Its a harrowing process. Something that Britain and the USA have no inkling of.

        These defeated nations were reconstituted by the victors, USA and the UK, as diplomatically as possible, but the defeated knew who were the boss.

        For Britain, a victor in both world wars, full of unspoken confidence in itself, to be part of a group such as the EU, would always be very difficult for the rest of the group.

        The EU, understandably, has a grudge against Britain and America, as they are in a debt they cant repay. Even if the UK behaved with utmost humility, it would not work. In fact worse, as everyone would know that it was a false humility of a victor. So it is that France, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, are always at war with us in the EU. They have to prove themselves- again and again.

        I’m glad we are out, as our presence in the EU is bad for us, and much worse for the EU.

        I hold the BBC, Taff, more than any other body, including those in the last parliament, responsible for the prevention of us leaving on my birthday in March of last year. Their wall to wall negativity, with presenters and hand picked talking heads, knocking the UK down at every opportunity was only relieved by their obsession with climate change, gender issues and how bad “whitey” is. In more enlightened times they would have been put against a wall and shot for treason!

    THE UNFORGIVEN…
    Here’s my list:

    1) Elton John..
    For his angry insults to Brexit voters and anti democratic thinking, but we should all listen to a bloke who dresses like a lampshade, and had a drug problem and an eating disorder.

    2) Theresa May for misleading and lying to the public for being a wet ar*e and a total waste of time as a Home Secretary and PM. Cynthia Payne could have done a better job.

    3) David Cameron, for lying and walking away.

    4) The BBC for their bias and idiotic thinking. Remember, these clowns gave us Jimmy Savile as a children’s entertainer.

    5) The luvies..too numerous to mention for their uninvited political opinions and insults. You’re over paid and over bearing. Just entertain and shut the f**k up

    6) The mainstream media for project fear and time wasting

    7) Gina Miller..for being a globalist mouthpiece and probably making a shed load to boot.

    8) Guy Verhofstadt ..for being insulting a pro federalist who interfered with our election and campaigned for it.

    9) Extinction Rebellion , because they’re just weird tw*ts

    10) Last but by no means least Bob The bloody N*b Geldof for being a scruffy ar*ed self righteous pr*ck amongst pr*cks from pr*ckville and annoying to**er.

      Sargon makes a good point
      What does this new word “hate” mean ?

      Hate spreader = an accusation similar to “racist” that is used by libmob to uneven the debate playing field ,
      in fact to remove non-woke / non-libmob from the debate playing field.

      It was just used on Alastair Stewart
      ..now on Katie Hopkins and George Galloway
      as it was used on TR.

      Now “Pym Fortuyn was assassinated during the 2002
      by a left-wing environmentalist and animal rights activist.”

      No doubt influenced by lefty political hyperbole
      Debate that should not be banned, it was OK to challenge Fortuyn

      But note when people challenge libmob’s dogma
      libmob disempower them by shouting HATE SPREADER
      and saying that those people should not even be allowed on the field of debate

      Yet those same libmob are themselves so full of hate that they do either join Antifa violence or fail to properly call it out.

      The beeb were always going to sneer at waving the Union Jack.

      Orwell captured the spirit of British intellectuals’ anti-patriotism in his famous essay of 1941, even if some of the details are now dated:

      “In intention, at any rate, the English intelligentsia are Europeanized. 
They take their cookery from Paris and their opinions from Moscow. In the 
general patriotism of the country they form a sort of island of dissident 
thought.

      England is perhaps the only great country whose intellectuals 
are ashamed of their own nationality. In left-wing circles it is always 
felt that there is something slightly disgraceful in being an Englishman 
and that it is a duty to snigger at every English institution, from horse 
racing to suet puddings. It is a strange fact, but it is unquestionably 
true that almost any English intellectual would feel more ashamed of 
standing to attention during ‘God save the King’ than of stealing from a 
poor box.

      All through the critical years many left-wingers were chipping 
away at English morale, trying to spread an outlook that was sometimes 
squashily pacifist, sometimes violently pro-Russian, but always 
anti-British.”

      ― George Orwell, England Your England

        It’s interesting that you say that about ITV, Fed, as Senora O’Blene and I were only discussing this the other day…

        We wondered where all the ads we used to watch had gone, and it suddenly dawned on us that we haven’t in fact seen anything on ITV for years! (maybe some of the Rugby was on, but that doesn’t count).

        It sounds so trivial to admit that now, but as the awful bbbc doesn’t have much more than a casual 6:00pm airing once or twice a month either, we have ‘morphed’ into another world which has moved on to proper blogs – like here, some political stuff from Guido and others and the online rags!

        Seeing the ‘news’ about the panic in W1A about being well and truly stuffed soon, and their shenanigans in trying to shed a load of autocue readers and their shags, is, I suppose, a start, but today, I’m afraid that I will alter my ‘habit’ and be watching how they deal with such a momentous celebration, and will cheer their fading, negative rictoid mugs!

        You’ll need extra staff/tinctures etc tomorrow to deal with all the comments! Bring it on!

            On an almost daily basis I’m texting a couple of friends of mine with what I believe are humorous texts outlining which services, shops, phone networks, takeaway business etc etc I can’t use because myself/my wife/my offspring are the wrong colour and/or sexuality.
            Currently on my no fly list is Expedia. Black wife, white husband, two black kids, one white kid. Seriously what are the chances of that? And while Tesco is the best of a bad bunch I learned yesterday that my wife is the wrong colour to buy her clothes from them. Oh well, their loss. We’re also too heterosexual to ever buy a Clio or bank with HSBC (not to mention too English for HSBC) and there’s a VW SUV doing the rounds which I also can’t buy because according to the advert it’s a car for a woman. Oh well, their loss.
            Interestingly I’ve found that the only adverts that don’t adhere to the new multi culti multi sexual rules are those awful dubbed ones usually advertising toothpaste, cleaning products or confectionery that I believe are filmed in Germany or another EU country. Funny that.

        After the initial moments for this to sink in, I became even more confused, and that really started the discussion, and added several tinctures to the space by the elbow…

        As for a ‘dry’ January, my doctor, a charming, beautiful lady, told me that I really should cut out the sauce for a couple of days a week. Funnily enough, it is quite a pleasant sensation, being able to shop in the afternoon, go for a bike-ride after lunch etc., but giving up all that vag/veg/viagra stuff is just a silly idea really…

        A good friend used to stop the tincturing during January. He was a sorry, lost soul, and while I never asked him if he gave up everything else, he did admit that he once stayed up to one minute past twelve, and hit the red with a vengeance!

    Many on this site may not be concerned about this and particularly today . But the BBC’s distortion of history needs to be reported.

    The BBC documentary film, “Bombing Auschwitz,” was broadcast in the United States by PBS on January 21 and is being screened at various venues. This BBC documentary about the question of bombing Auschwitz deserves an award—for creative fiction.
    Through omissions, distortions, and “re-enactments” of conversations with imaginary dialogue inserted for effect, the BBC has made a shambles of the historical record concerning this important issue.

    Let us all hope that within the next 1316 days we are celebrating the demise of the BBC. I am certain that over the past forty years , ever since the election of Lady Thatcher, this organisation has done incalculable damage to this country. It has moulded , perhaps warped is a better word, the minds of millions with its 24/7 leftist and more recently Wokist propaganda which permeates all of its output from news and documentaries through to drama. No programmes are free from a large dose of Wokism.
    Freeing the country from the BBC would be the equal of freeing the country from the EU. Millions of people can see now see how biased the BBC has been over Brexit and are ready to see it got rid of. The time to strike at the BBC is now so come on Boris kill off the foul corporation the first step to which is decriminalisation of non payment of the LF. Give the people the tools and they will bring down the BBC for you at little or no political cost to yourself.

    The BBC website is currently running a doom’n’gloom article on the Coronavirus, explaining how it is all down to ‘climate change’. In a relatively short article, it manages to use the phrases ‘climate change’ or ‘environmental change’ no less than seven times. Because of ‘climate change’, we can apparently expect many more infectious diseases from now on. And some of the consequences will be truly disasterous e.g. “It becomes harder to cross borders” and “seasonal migrant workers can’t relocate”. And whilst ‘climate change’, globalisation and urbanisation may well be factors, a curiousity remains. Coronavirus has so far killed a few hundred people (although the number is likely to rise significantly), whilst the closest analog in recent times, SARS, killed 774. And yet the Spanish flu, cited in the article, killed between 50-100 million people. Presumably 1918-1920 were particularly bad years for global warming, right?

    The article was commissioned by the BBC and penned by Professor Timothy Benton of the infamous Chatham House. As the BBC coyly states: “(it)describes itself as an independent policy institute helping to build a sustainably secure, prosperous and just world.” It has three presidents, currently John Major, Alistair Darling and Elizabeth Manningham-Butler (former head of MI5).

    “In a statement, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn urged the country not to “turn inwards” and instead “build a truly internationalist, diverse and outward-looking Britain”.”

    AKA more alien rapists, thieves and murderers.

    “Boris Johnson Cuts Out Mainstream Media, Will Address Nation via Social Media for Brexit Day

    It was later revealed this would take the form of a “fireside chat” with the nation, recorded in the Prime Minister’s official residence, Downing Street.”

    Eliminate the treasonous BBC, excellent.
    Fireside chats, were the speciality of the mass murdering Communist FDR.
    The “President” who would have starved the Japanese population, who caused the Pearl Harbour attack, who involved the USA in WW2 despite his many lying statements to the contrary.
    The FDR policy being to support the USSR in its attempt to Communise Europe.

    So I am very concerned about this Boris development.

      I don’t want a diverse country. I want a cohesive monoculture.

      Unity is strength. As the truism says, divide and conquer, which is what the collectivists have been trying to do to us for half a century or more.

        If you live in the same town as your ancestors have lived for the last 200 years, and the same is true for your neighbours, and the authorities want to put a motorway through it, then everyone complains.

        When 45% of the people in ‘your’ town were born umpteen thousand miles away who is there to care what the authorities do?

          Quite so. A nation is more than a piece of real estate to camp on. It’s also history, tradition, culture, law, language, religion, unwritten conventions and customs, a countryside and environment. Without a deep knowledge and appreciation of them, who will protect and preserve them?

    Tonight, in the words of the great Martin Luthrr King, we will be able to say “Free at last! Free at last!”

    I bought a bottle of champagne for the occasion, the first and probably last real champagne bottle I have bought. Ironic of course being French but I needed to celebrate independence somehow. It’s been cooling for over a week and will taste so sweet tonight.

    A well known manufacturer of Cornish pasties in my neck of the woods recently ceased trading, blaming it on ‘continued uncertainty about Brexit’. I expect Brexit will be the go-to explanation for everything that goes to pot over the next few years. So we must assume that prospective pasty buyers were thinking “Oh, I’d better not, without all those wise EU rules the pasties will be inedible, even toxic. I might die! Damn you Boris Johnson!”

      Stew -then the Al Stewart petition went up by 6000 overnight . I fear though , that ITV news is just a mirror of the BBC , with the same people calling the shot and out snowflaking each other . It’s the same reason that the very few adverts I see tell me that I’m living in Africa .( which here in London isn’t that far off ) That gives me a mental list of goods and services I won’t be using .

      Toady watch
      I turned on the radio and noticed that there was a strange smell coming from it . It is the smell of the BBC pouring poo on the democratic decision to get out of the BBCs favourite club .

      And my god they even put their very own EU spokesman – Katty Adler on the airwaves pretending to be a BBC reporter .

    Happy Brexit Day everyone!! Don’t forget everyone the “cliff-edge” the Remainers warned we are about to jump off.
    I have a busy day planned today, I will be stocking up with 2 months worth of canned food, 6 months worth of prescriptions, protective riot gear and for good measure I will be building a nuclear shelter in my back garden!

    Local new surprisingly did not follow a formula
    – Radio Humberside led with Brexit, but chose two voices a local Super Remainer, and a local uncertain businessman

    – Radio Lincolnshire led with Brexit, but chose to open with Farage, then a local Brexiteer who’ll be in London celebrating, then a local EU immigrant organiser saying today is just another day.

      Yes not a lot will change during transition . The ReichEU will be desperate to extend it on the never ending Article 50 method .

      Fishing rights will be traded off for financial services
      Bad deals / sell outs happen . BoJo will get the blame – particularly by the BBC

      The ReichEU has infected the UK for nearly 50 years so it’s going to take a bit of time and I reckon there will be unexpected consequences . (Where’s my ‘duty free?).

      But the thing is – we can say ‘ screw you ‘ to the un unDemocrats in Brussels , close our borders , control. Who comes in and throw them out when needs be .

        Although today is a good day, I wish I was as optimistic as some here.

        Senior civil servants continue to work against the interests of our country.
        Parliament (although somewhat improved) is still full of traitors, lunatics and cowards.
        The ‘institutions’ have been well and truly infiltrated.
        The bBC will still be permitted to be a monopolising mouthpiece for alien interests and lies. Our schoolchildren will continue to be fed Newsround.

        There’s a long, long way to go.

        Practicalities – Re the coronavirus – I assume nothing is being done about quarantining all the illegals sneaking over from the Continent? What about the people they come into contact with?

    A Democrat Congressional committee is demanding YouTube censor videos that contain “climate misinformation” as part of a new purge that would basically eliminate skepticism about man-made global warming from the platform.

    In a letter sent to Google CEO Sundar Pichai, the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on the Climate Crisis claims that YouTube has “been driving millions of viewers to climate misinformation videos every single day.”

    It demands the following list of action items ..

    You’d never know that the attempt to impeach Trump was a highly partisan attack by the Democrats to overturn the result of an election…democracy?…but you would know that the Senate voting against impeachment was a Republican stitch-up protecting their man.

    Similarly you’d never know, as the Today show still pushes the brutally divided nation #duetobrexit narrative, that it was the actions of the Remainers who absolutely refused to accept the result of the referendum that ‘divided’ the nation and led to all the rancour and bitterness…not to mention the massive uncertainty and instability that so badly effected business…and as that uncertainty slips away the economy kicks up a gear…no thanks to the BBC which leant its considerable support to the Remain side always presenting their narratives, and the EU’s, as the only fair, practical and rational way to do things..failing completely to note that Parliament and democracy itself had been hijacked and subverted and that the courts had been corrupted by a judiciary intent on stopping Brexit…the BBC not only failing to question the validity of the Supreme Court’s decison as it blatantly and astoundingly invented a law and then applied it retrospectively to put a spanner in the Brexit works, the BBC then went on to celebrate Lady Hale and her spider and even brought her in to edit the Today show…you couldn’t have a clearer indication of how biased and corrupt the BBC has been in its Brexit reporting than that.

    Kuenssberg this morning was sounding more like Orla Guerin as she launched into a dirge about Brexit, a more downbeat and negative report you’d be hard pushed to find….but then there’s always Katya Adler to bring things down further and put a dampner upon the celebrations.

    It’s all going to be very hard and miserable as we negotiate with a, er, triumphant and powerful EU.

    You’d never know that the IMF had just said the British economy would do better than the EU’s this year….or that one EU official on 5 LIve stated that the negotiations would be easier than other trade talks as we already were aligned and inside the EU…so not having to re-jig our own standards to align and comply…all that had to be negotiated was what we wouldn’t want to comply and align with….a very different requirement…hence when the referendum was in full swing the Leave side said the trade talks would be easier…and they were jumped on by the BBC et al. This EU official also said he thought that the agreement could be done inside the year….but you just don’t hear that from BBC reporters themselves….it’s all doom and gloom and pessimism.

      And the comments on the tweet could certainly have gone better. A jumped up Countdown presenter and someone who left her husband for the man she got paired with on Strictly or the ice dancing or whatever.
