    On Monday Dover asked us to list all the very best things that could happen in 2020. The list was marvellous and everything on it would make life for people in the UK better. But of all the items two stood out to me as being the keys which unlock the future and free us from the liberal Globalist hegemony which has had the whip hand for the past thirty plus years.
    These are firstly becoming a sovereign nation again by leaving the EU and secondly ending the state funding of the BBC .(I would prefer abolition followed by obliteration but that isn’t going to happen ) I rank them as equally important. Exiting the EU without massively reducing the influence of the BBC will allow the Globalist Rejoiners a platform to trick us into entering the EU again. Additionally, even if that doesn’t happen the BBC will continue to propagate Globalist one world views tricking millions into voting and acting against their own best interests. Without the BBC propaganda churning away in most homes in the country there is a chance , just a chance, that the British people when left to themselves can save their culture, values and ultimately their country.


    • Darcy3 says:

      Only one thing wrong with those “keys to unlock the future”:

      What will happen to all the self styled “wurld klass” journalists with their third klass meeja degrees ?

      You know, the ones who think Hertfordshire is Herefordshire, and spend their time hiding news of muslim racism, muslim gang rape and muslim misogyny whilst ranting on about racism, sexual assault and wimmins rights?

      They will no doubt still continue in one form or another in an expenses paid job telling everyone they are fighting against fake news whilst hiding news, misinforming people about leaving Europe, and TR arrests, lying about protest attendances and ranting on about “klimut change” etc without an iota of scientific knowledge even at GCSE level

    A ‘smart’ meter thought: Some parts of the country can produce more power (when the sun shines) than they consume from the grid. At the moment neither the grid nor the distribution companies have any control over the domestic producers.

    When we all have ‘smart’ meters might it just happen that those consumers that aren’t consuming might get cut-off when the energy flows are embarassingly the ‘wrong way’? Is that what they mean by a ‘modern grid’?

    Another little fact that will never change: A standard forecourt petrol pump shifts energy at a rate 3,000 times greater than a domestic electricity supply is capable of. It doesn’t matter how good battery technology gets.

    If batteries were up to petrol tank ratings it would mean having a sub-station style circuit breaker at every commercial charging point. If petrol had been discovered now it would be considered a miracle, after all it is what makes it possible for aeroplanes to fly at all.

    Anyway this is all theoretical. They know who voted for Brexit and none of you plebs will be getting cars or home heating in the future, Greta said so.


    • Up2snuff says:

      Jim, good post. But …. “Another little fact that will never change: A standard forecourt petrol pump shifts energy at a rate 3,000 times greater than a domestic electricity supply is capable of. It doesn’t matter how good battery technology gets.” … that petrol pump requires electricity to operate.

      Oh dear!

      Even if you have the electricity, the next thing you need these days is a credit or debit card network that is operating. That requires two things: more electricity and solvent banks. (The reason RBS was rescued in 2008 was probably because the credit/debit card network would have collapsed without RBS. Then the NHS would have to close, because essential supplies would not be available to hospitals. The NHS runs on petrol and diesel.)

      Those little XR moppets, bless ’em, really haven’t thought things through at all.

      Actually, that leads neatly to Ollie Letwin’s new book. See below. Or listen to the last half-hour of TOADY.

      By the way, how do MPs have time to write books? If they are doing their constituency and Parliamentary duties properly, how can they have the time available?


    • Old Goat says:

      Those awful ads, which would have you believe that you’re going to save oodles of electricity, and therefore money by installing one, have as a brief afterthought “savings are dependent upon consumer action” – so in other words they are no more economical than keeping a weather eye on how you would normally use electricity, and check the bills as they arrive. No need for a “smart” meter.

    Bbc Moaning Emole:


    A more eco-friendly petrol could be introduced to garages in the UK from next year. The government is consulting on making E10 – which contains less carbon and more ethanol than fuels currently on sale – the new standard grade. The Department for Transport says it could cut CO2 emissions by 750,000 tonnes per year, but E10 is not compatible with some older vehicles.

    Carbon – C
    Ethanol – CtwoHfiveOH

    Fewer coal cars and more powered by hand sanitizer? Spiffy.


    • Up2snuff says:

      Guest, do you remember the EEC’s (EU’s) wine lake? It followed or preceeded the EEC’s (EU’s) ‘Butter Mountain’. Or when oil hit $140 per barrel?

      I seem to recall that some Germans with wineries tweaked the mix of their unsold stocks a bit and ran their (petrol) BMWs & Mercs on the modified wine they couldn’t shift to wholesalers.

      Then in the $140p/b period, people with diesel cars were buying five litres of cheap cooking oil for way less than the price of diesel fuel at the pump, and using it to augment half a tank of increasingly expensive proper diesel fuel.

      Or were those stories exaggerated?


    • tarien says:

      E10 not compatible for older vehicles-that could mean many thousands of cars and especially among older folks like my wife and I who have an older vehicle, and certainly could not afford a new one. We don’t drive more than 5000 miles a year these days yet still have to pay the same amount of road tax as someone who might do 25/20K miles per year which irrespective of their vehicles ommissons is a greater threat than we are. The whole policy now is to accom those that live in the largest conabations such as London, where the introduction of Electric vehicles is perhaps easier with a plentiful of charging points than those of us who live in the countryside where we rarely see one let alone many. Of course again as one of the older bunch we don’t have the available capital now to purchase an Electric vehicle should we want one, which we don’t. And our nearest bus route is 2 miles away from the house so we need our car-get real government and attend more pressing problems.


    • Old Goat says:

      Still, for the life of me, can’t understand why they consider it necessary to cut CO2 emissions at all, when anyone with a remote grasp of science knows that we really could do with a lot more. At least double that which hangs around in the atmosphere, now, would be useful to ALL life. Instead of which they demonise it. Poor CO2!


      • john in cheshire says:

        I think the globalists and collectivists have chosen CO2 as the bad actor because it can be linked to things; oil, gas, coal; that they hate and without them, we revert to subsistence living; but like the frog in the pan of water on the stove, the damage happens so slowly that most people don’t notice what is being done to us.

        If they were actually and really concerned about this nebulous climate change that they scream about, they’d target clouds; ie water; as the major influence on temperature. But can you imagine the outcry if they told the world that clouds must be banned.

        Of course the wilfully ignorant also refuse to even consider that the Sun is the major controller of the world’s climate. I’d wager that little miss muffet has never even considered that the sun has an effect. Or clouds for that matter.


    • popeye says:

      In the rush to cut down on pollution there are some simpler measures they could take almost cost-free. How much time is wasted, and pollutants generated, waiting at poorly programmed traffic lights? How about, at eight o’clock each evening until six o’clock in the morning, many, if not most, traffic lights go to a flashing amber state – proceed with caution. Very intuitive so that even foreign visitors would understand and no-one sitting there for minutes idling and producing those nasty fumes. But that would be of benefit to motorists and not meet the objective of getting us off the roads and onto non-existent public transport (except London of course)


    • Banania says:

      Just have separate pumps; only compatible cars to be refuelled from them. We already do that with diesel and petrol.

  8. Right Angle says:

    Yaaaawn … here’s Lord Hall’s platitudinous piece (in the DM):


    (I read it so that you don’t have to, etc.):

    “The former culture secretary Nicky Morgan wrote recently that the BBC needs to accept that no change isn’t an option. I couldn’t agree more. A BBC that doesn’t change with the times is a BBC that fails its audiences. And they own the BBC after all. The BBC has always been the first to embrace change.” (Quite obviously, that does not include change to the funding model).

    On second thoughts, may I recommend you go straight to the comments:


    A suitable headline would be:


    Here’s a sample:

    “The TV licence. Having to pay for a channel you no longer watch, as it rubbishes the values you hold dear.”

    “The first change is to abolish the licence and pay for itself. After that I don`t really care.”

    “abolish the tv licence NOW”

    “No one should be FORCED to have a BBC licence just because they have a TV…. not everyone likes that channel.”

    “Shut it down, lefty political rubbish”

    “We have no confidence in the BBC to give an unbiased opinion, after the Brexit fiasco it is time they made their own way in the real world outside the London bubble .scrap the. Compulsory license fee. We now have more choices and the BBC is not one of them.”

    Continue the ear-bashing, everybody!


  9. Fedup2 says:

    Thank you – I just wished this discussion was a bit more focused and a bit less laid back . But the points made are real and reinforces the view about the way the BBC has become hostile to the British . Minorities get a free pass but the British must be given a kicking – some kind of internalised ‘guilt ‘.

    I also get the feeling that the BBC hasn’t come to terms with either the election result or the formalisation of Brexit .

    The BBC is desperately trying to either find or create weaknesses in the BoJo government but won’t be overturning an 80 majority .

    It may also be a defence mechanism for the threat to change the funding ….. which inside the government is probably being diverted as all (clean ) hands go toward the Chinese flu and Brexit …..

    Anyone know how Toady is going as I have cut it , and all current affairs , out …..

  14. Dover Sentry says:

    Whatever your opinion of Boris, he should be credited so far with winning the following Battles:

    Battle of Brexit

    Battle of Parliament

    He has the following Battles to deal with:

    Battle of the Civil Service

    Battle of the BBC

    The Battle he has not yet engaged with but must, is the Climate Change/CO2 hoax. This has the potential to inflict more damage upon us than all the above combined.

    Should Boris neglect this foe, I can see the rise of a Pro-CO2 Party next year.

    Interesting times ahead 🙂


    • Doublethinker says:

      Nicely put Dover. Dividing these huge issues into these four battles is a great bit of analysis.
      *Boris is doing ok so far on Brexit but that battle is not yet won and the EU and their Rejoiner 5th column could yet snatch victory or at least delay and water down the final agreement.
      *I think he has won the battle of Parliament but his challenge now is to consolidate the victory by implementation of the constituency boundary changes , reform postal voting and tighten up on our voting procedure to stop voting fraud, repeal the Fixed Term Parliament Act and finally introduce a new law requiring anyone who wishes to cross the floor of the house to resign their seat and fight a by election.
      * The battle of civil service and the battle of the BBC are in my view two fronts in a single war. A third front would be the battle of the quangos. It’s is a battle of the people versus the Globalist elite and their state salaried followers and is the key one for the future. I am not optimistic that Boris really wants to fight this one on our behalf, he doesn’t like the sight of blood and it will be a bloody battle of attrition lasting the full five years. How he defends PP at the Home Office and what happens to the decriminalisation of non payment will tell us shortly. If he doesn’t engage and win this particular battle we will soon return to the EU and continue down the same Globalist path we have been on for thirty plus years.
      * The climate change battle is one which I feel Boris will put on the back burner because he thinks , probably believes , he isn’t a scientist after all, that there is something in this hoax.

      In my view Boris has made a good start but things are hotting up and he will need a lot of guts to fight the battles you list above. Does he have the balls for the fight? I am not so sure.


  15. Up2snuff says:

    I’m copying forward a post I made yesterday. The BBC have reminded me that I forgot an item I should have included on the list below, now added as #6.

    Could it be the reason the BBC despise and wish to denigrate and remove Priti Patel is that:

    1. she is a woman
    2. she is not Muslim
    3. she is a Conservative Party member and MP
    4. she is in a top Cabinet post, appointed by Boris Johnson as Prime Minister
    5. she lives in Essex and represents an Essex constituency.
    6. she is a keen and enthusiastic Brexiteer?

    You may now perm any four from six choices as they used to say in the days of football pools.

    Did I really hear right this morning, that the BBC really conveyed the news that Priti Patel is under attack because of her place on the Leave campaign and her enthusiasm for Brexit? Quite an admission.


    • Doublethinker says:

      Removing people of colour who are Tories is very important to the BBC. These people and others from ‘protected groups’ are highly dangerous to the liberal Globalist project because they can say things which white people no longer dare or can say. Basically they can tell truths to power which white Tories can’t.

  17. digg says:

    I believe the campaign against Patel is being orchestrated from the top of the Civil Service with the full support of their like-minded, bubble lefty underlings and has as it’s primary goal to discredit the government.

    It’s payback for….

    A. Getting Brexit done


    B. Getting Boris as PM with a huge majority.

    Boris has a massive struggle on his hands against all these unelected power-mongers and I wish him god speed.

    You can compare it to the situation in the USA with the Senate versus the Assembly. or going back in history, the Round-Heads versus the Royalists


    • Fedup2 says:

      If they have no power to get legislation through the next attack line is to go for those who can.

    TOADY Watch #1 – Brainless, disconnected BBC

    The 7-8 a.m. segment contains an interview with an American who is talking with Martha about the universe and stuff. Cannot remember name or specific career; he was some sort of futurologist. His future predict: the universe will go extinct and disappear in some way.

    The 8-9 a.m. segment contains an interview with a young lady (sorry cannot remember name – again. Excuse: I was reading and writing at the same time) who had suffered mental health problems from her mid-teens onwards. She talked to Martha.

    Martha did not join the dots. Martha did not make the connection.

    BBC preaches doom & gloom on AGW, AI, universe collapse, etc. = youth anxiety & mental illness

    It’s a simple equation.

    Poor old Martha, again. She did have a dreadful programme this a.m.. She was talking with Chris Witty, Chief Medical Officer for England, but not Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland. He probably should be. He sounds like a much better CMO than that Davies woman (his predecessor) by some large order of magnitude, say, x10.

    Chris Witty let drop an important bit of information: that some people may have Coronavirus/Covid-19 and remain asymptomatic. Now that should have immediately elicited two, three or more questions from Martha but no, she was only interested in the length of a piece of string.

    Or how many would die from Coronavirus/Covid-19.

      The BBC’s influence over voters who live on the other side of the Atlantic is non existent. An American network can be saying whatever they want about UK politicians right now, I don’t hear it and wouldn’t be influenced if I did. The only thing it will do will be to cause a meltdown if, hopefully, President Trump wins because all of those people who still believe the BBC will view the victory as a shock that came out of the blue and not what was happening in the real world the whole time.

  27. Socialist Dungheap says:

    Today is the 4th of March which is ‘World Obesity Day’. Obesity is caused by an excess of body fat, now here is a problem. What ‘World Obesity Day’ is attempting to do is possibly have all these obese people who are primarily in the ‘western societies’ to lose this excess fat and become healthier. Now when these people exercise the fat is ‘burnt off’ what happens is as the fat cell shrinks 84% is exhaled as carbon dioxide and other 16% is excreted as water. So think about it. This means obese people sequester carbon dioxide. When and if they exercise all this stored CO2 will be released into the atmosphere adding to the CO2 already there. Why then aren’t the Greens and ER and Greta demanding we eat more and continue to sit on the sofa watching the BBC or reading the Guardian? This is very worrying and could be giving our children nightmares!


  28. Jeff says:

    Nothing to do with BBC bias, Corona–virus or even Priti Patel, just a little light relief among all the doom and gloom.
    Yesterday lunchtime in the car, stuck in heavy traffic, I tuned into Jeremy Vine.
    Jezza had on a nudist who claimed that members (ahem) of his society were being vilified and wanted their grievances treated as hate crimes. “Oh Gawd” I groaned…
    However there’s something about the whole concept of naturism that makes me chuckle. Perhaps it’s all those wobbly bodies trying to avoid stinging nettles. And why is it that it’s always those that should never be seen naked that feel an overwhelming desire to get their kit off?
    Anyway, this bloke came out with a classic. Jeremy asked what had first attracted him to naturism. Our nudist friend answered, quick as a flash (sorry) that when he was a young man a group of pals had invited him to a nudist colony.
    “I wasn’t really a naturist to begin with” he said. “I was just hanging out with my mates.”
    Well, it tickled me…

      Only yesterday, I was chatting with a chum with whom I played rugby in the sixties, and we both admitted that a couple of pints before a game was a necessity, it kept fluid values high, spirits on alert, and it made for a friendly match against similar opponents.

      Of course, we carried on afterwards, and our opponents were fine friends as well by the time we locked up and went elsewhere…

  31. Woolwich says:

    Random stuff.

    A Chinese company is buying British Steel and as a consequence will save 3200 jobs in communities that really need that sort of help. A massive hurray……..but why have the bbc and MSM not raised the spectre of massive amounts of CO2 being produced by these newly reinvigorated steelworks? Don’t get me wrong I don’t want them to, but the devil in me would love to see the fireworks if St Greta and her children held demonstrations (preferably in Scunthorpe and Teesside) in protest.

    In a chat with a friend at the weekend about the tv she watches (I know that she doesn’t watch the bbc or iPlayer as she refuses to buy a licence) I was able to clear up with her that she IS allowed to watch the catch up services of ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 etc, as up to now she hadn’t realised that the regulations had changed, yes I know all of the channels are as bad as each other but at least she can cherry pick from years worth of content.

    The Tommy Robinson situation where his 8 year old daughter was assaulted by a a man in Center Parcs, the man got off, Tommy got arrested for trying to restrain him/make a citizens arrest. I went into Twitter to see if Center Parcs has a comment to make but instead found disparaging remarks made by TalkRadio presenter Mike Graham. Even when people pointed out that there are allegations about the young girl being assaulted he refused to back down. Today his Plank Of The Week video popped up in my YouTube feed and the comments were almost unanimous in their opinion that he’s the plank for his refusal to change his stance. I’ve now unsubscribed from the TalkRadio video channel on YouTube and as I sit typing this I’m listening to Jim White on TalkSport, TalkRadio and especially Mike Graham are now dead to me.

  33. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    I forget which show it was on (maybe daily politics) but yesterday they were talking about Priti and her ‘bullying’

    One of the panel brought up the bullying by Bercow and that it isn’t getting the same attention.
    Another on the panel said it was because he was on their (the left) side so labour haven’t made a fuss.
    This was accepted and not picked up on by any of the others on the panel.
    They all knew it was true.

    That shows how impartial the bully boy Bercow has been when one side of parliament fully supports him and the other side is against him.

    The new bloke is showing him how to do Speaker properly.

    Yesterday I submitted a comment to the Daily Mail where they gave a very misleading part account of what happened to Tommy.
    They didn’t mention the reason why he detained the ‘man’
    I filled in the part they missed out.
    Hundreds of comments later mine was still not published but there were lots asking why he had detained this ‘man’
    We know why but the disgusting DM done a bbc on the story and manipulated it by 180 degrees to make out it was Tommy who caused the trouble and not the paedo ‘man’ groping Tommy’s 8 year old daughter.

    The article is no longer there.
    It’s done what they intended so job done.

        I cant help but keep thinking about Yes, Minister when listening to all this nonsense about Priti Patel. If ever there was a telling story that it was the Civil Service who ruled and not the government, it was that programme, even in a comical way, and at the time one of the best comedy shows on the box.


      • smoogie7 says:

        So far I have been impressed with her. The left are really starting to hate her which is frustrating for them as she is a British Asian and they must be baffled to think that she is not ‘on their side’


      • Deborah says:

        Years ago my daughter was applying for jobs with MPs. There was one in Priti’s office. We both had heard that Priti was a tough cookie to work for. It didn’t put daughter off putting in an application although she didn’t get an interview. If people like Priti have that sort of reputation, if you work for them, you know it isn’t going to be easy. However snowflakes shouldn’t apply.

          Sadly today we live in a society where being told what ‘to do’, can be interpreted as bullying and harassment by some sensitive souls.

          When I was younger in employment in a typing pool, I always felt that the woman in charge ‘had it in for me’, but in those days the term ‘unacceptable / bullying / harassment’ never existed. You either put up with it or left. I stayed and got over it.

          There will always be bossy bosses, and everyone has 2 choices, stay or go.

          Its all about Priti Patel now, but what about when Gordon Brown threw phones across the room and went blue in the face with rage – according to those who worked with him. It shows that in both parties that challenging behaviour is prevalent.

    I just watched the Skagen fishing clip that was posted on the last thread. At the end there’s an exchange:

    Danish woman (talking about the centre): “We have a fish as an ornament because it’s so much part of our DNA.”

    BBC reporter adds: “…DNA that goes back to Viking times…”

    It’s an interesting bit of historical and ethnic purity. Funny how the Danes are allowed to be rooted in thousands of years of tradition now that Brexit might be messing things up for them. When would the BBC ever speak favourably about something embedded in the British DNA? They’d be all over it trying to show how it was really brought in by Nish Kumar on the Windrush.

    TalkRadio update.
    The livestream for this mornings Mike Graham show has just appeared on my YouTube feed. So I clicked on the report button citing it as containing hateful material.
    Hopefully people will put their money where their mouths are and u subscribe/report if they feel strongly, otherwise how does the message get across?

    The BBC has a programme this week called Naughts + Crosses. This imagines a Europe invaded conquered and run by Africans from about 1200 AD.
    I cannot wait for details of all the inventions, technology scientific discoveries that the African invaders and their descendants have brought to the western world.
    Vehicles, trains, planes helicopters, radio and television plus I suppose the computer and all associated technology.
    African county of origin and dates of the above plus the named inventor or scientist. Details of production, how it was funded manufacturing sites etc.
    Just wondering.
    I do not belittle African culture or the people’s development, it is just different from European, we have developed in a different way to adapt to our environment and that has led to other developments.
    I wonder if there will be a follow up series, how they conquered the Middle East and Islam and then India and China?


    • tarien says:

      Falling further into the pit of destruction for the white westen people-who of course have achieved so little by comparison against the African nations! African achievements from my own experience of West Africa have left millions still living in tribal enclaves as they did many thousands of years ago-hence a slow march to nowhere for the majority. If the western world stopped all aid right now to Africa and frankly I think it should, I wonder how well Africa and others would manage-would those of African blood who have succeeded in western nations run to help their blood brothers? Sadly I fear not.


      • BRISSLES says:

        If African aid stopped, Africa would be empty, and the Mediterranean would be chocker with boats jam full of migrants. (some to be met on our shores by Alibaba, herself a migrant from Africa)

      I expect all the newsreaders will be white and supermarket Ramadan adverts will be based on white families and, of course, only whites will be buying sofas!

      The Black Broadcasting Corporation website will be stuffed with stories from Africa where a white cleaning lady had ‘whitey’ written on her CostaLotta Coffee.


  39. Nibor says:

    In earlier times I wrote articles for the trucking press criticizing the senior civil servants and explaining their ways and tricks .
    When I wrote that they were bullying , indolent , devious and not working in Britains best interests they saw those articles but never countered them , never justified themselves , just laid low and hoped it would all blow over .
    Priti should repay them in the way they treat us .

    Jeremy Vine reveals that there are high levels of anxiety amongst people who aren’t at risk to Corona Virus.

    Where could they possibly have got that fear from?

    The ground-breaking, award-winning Noughts and Crosses series, which transformed children’s literature, is soon to grace our screens in a six-part BBC One drama.
    The first novel used to be part of the KS3 curriculum in England, presenting an accessible way for young people to discuss racism and civil rights through an alternative universe. In it, black people (“Crosses”) are the rulers and white people (“Noughts”) are the underclass. A love story blossoms between a pair of childhood friends on either side

    Reports the beeb website,
    I’d call it BS, please put the bbc down its finally had its day

      I can’t watch that because I don’t do TV but I have plenty on Radio 4 to turn off this week. Among the serialised books and dramas I have to turn off there’s ‘Guest House for Young Widows’ ( about would be ISIS gals ) and ‘Apeirogon’ (“Bassam and Rami must confront how to live their lives without their daughters ….. ” ).

    • G.W.F. says:

      The left may be gunning for Priti, but unless she speaks up for the victims of the grooming gangs and urges publication of the report on them, she is merely part of the anti working class elite. Johnson does not have the guts to stand by her and if the media stand firm he will let her go. Well let her go and hopefully she might then tell a few tales.


    • Lefty Wright says:

      If she did use those words all I can say is “hats off to Priti Patel” because it’s exactly the attitude that is required right now in order to straighten our country out.I’m sick of those limp wristed wimps who have held sway over the British Government and people for far too long. I hope she proves to be just the first of a long line of “right wing bullies” who want to restore the country to sanity.

    I remember my mother taking me as a small boy to a film version of the 19th century novel, Tom Brown’s Schooldays. Seared on my memory is the scene where poor Tom is roasted in front of a fire by the dastardly older boy, Flashman (who was to become the hero of George MacDonald Fraser’s marvellous novels).

    Now that’s what I call bullying.

    Maybe the worm is turning against the woke and warped academics who are trying to take society apart by controlling our children for their own ends.


    Two victims of a bizarre social experiment in which Berlin’s city hall deliberately placed troubled children in the care of paedophiles are on the brink of winning compensation.

    From 1969 to 2003 the authorities put at least nine boys in the hands of convicted sex offenders on the advice of a disgraced social scientist.

    The idea behind the Kentler experiment — named after Helmut Kentler, an academic who argued that paedophilia could have “positive consequences” — was that unruly and “feeble-minded” children would benefit from adult sexual attention.

    In the late 1960s Kentler persuaded West Berlin’s ruling Senate that the homeless boys would jump at the opportunity to be fostered by paedophiles and would be “head over heels in love” with their new father figures.

    I would suggest to the Berlin Senate that as well as compensation they should also consider criminal charges against this specimen and the people in the Senate who rubber-stamped it.

    How on earth did they find her and have they no one more current to talk to or are maybe it’s another reason!

    Labour Party look like electing a white, middle-class Remainer/Rejoiner male as Party leader.

    Coronavirus/Covid-19 results in shut down of Chinese cities and there is illness and death there and around the world as the virus spreads worldwide.

    There is a run on clear honey.

    The world’s stock markets take fright and there are warning of economic and societal collapse.

    I notice in the ‘comments’ sections of the German MSM, many Germans congratulating the UK for leaving the EU, and expressing envy and the wish that they could ‘Dexit’.
    There is also a recruitment drive to encourage Germans to travel to Greece to assist ‘Greek patriots’ in defending their borders, having noted the aggressive measures used by many “migrants” against the Greek police, ‘compact-online’ reports today. THIS you won’t be seeing in German MSM! (compact is a conservative publication, interested in maintaining a sovereign German state, and controlling German borders; needless to say, this makes it a ‘far-right’ publication as far as the G establishment is concerned.)
    Locally, Beeb also will show you only complaining ‘refugees’ and their little girls playing ‘ring-a-rosies’ (lunchtime newscast). No sign of bolt cutters being used to cut through the border fence or tear gas and stoning employed AGAINST the Greek police.
    The Greens in Germany are in the forefront of efforts to bring as many ‘refugees’ as possible to Germany. They still have strong voter support if the opinion polls are to be believed, which is one reason why Merkel (sensing a possible alliance) will plead the case for the renewed inflow. Support for the Greens is baffling, but war guilt is still strong and concerted campaigns by especially the public broadcasters (!) to encourage the ‘migrants’ and the Greens
    She probably hopes the G public will forget the 6 billion Euros she paid Erdogan a few years ago to ‘hold back’ the ‘migrants’. Even at that point, it was clear to a blind man in a snowstorm what was going to happen.
    And now it is.
