    A scenario: …………..
    DC advises and warns the nation “Dont shoot yourself in the foot !”
    For one reason or another, DC is forced to shoot himself in the foot .

    The FOOLS in the nation are so enraged and upset about DC’s action, encouraged by Al Beeb, they too shoot themselves in the foot !

      The IPSO is meant to respond to complaints of harrassment but :

      3. *Harassment

      i) Journalists must not engage in intimidation, harassment or persistent pursuit.

      ii) They must not persist in questioning, telephoning, pursuing or photographing individuals once asked to desist; nor remain on property when asked to leave and must not follow them. If requested, they must identify themselves and whom they represent.

      iii) Editors must ensure these principles are observed by those working for them and take care not to use non-compliant material from other sources.

      I have been reading up for my weekend complaints, it is the only way to respond to what appears to be a barrage of socialist / left witch hunting
      https://www.ipso.co.uk/editors-code-of-practice/

      maybe DC did not ask thm to desist ? if he did they are in breach

        I would think a so called professional journalist calling someone a “dick” on national TV is an action that causes offence, I also think DC has enough in his arsenal now to cause the bbc et al a lot of potential damage but is keeping his powder dry maybe

      This reminds me at the time of the Peterborough election when the Brexit party stood when that lefty criminal was thrown out. I complained to the electoral commission about the obvious problem with the postal voting and I got a nasty fob off email from them telling me if I wasnt happy complain to the council.

    Does anyone else wonder why Scotland and Wales need to issue their own lockdown release guidelines as we are in fact a single Island. (much as they detest the idea!)

    I can only assume that it is merely to enlarge the ego’s of the leaders and to take a pop at England and/or Boris.

    Todays’ announcement by Boris that he was to allow groups of six people to meet was shortly followed by cranky announcing that in Scotland it would be groups of eight people. And this only days after screaming that Scotland would not follow the English as they released lockdown because they didn’t think it safe to proceed yet.

    You really couldn’t make this pantomime up, they take us all for fools!

    It’s all point scoring crap. I for one would not give a toss if they employed all the soon to be out of work population in their region to dig a bloody great trench along the border and fill it with crocodiles.

      They were going to make it six too but then someone pointed out that the Scottish Labour Party wouldn’t be able to hold their annual conference, so, in a rare act of generosity, the BBC’s Beloved Leader made it eight.

      Please note that the Welsh Assembly does not speak for most of the people of Taffland, in fact it got ‘assembled’ after the weakest referendum win. There have been calls to get rid of it. Example, the people voted four years ago to get out of the EU but the Welsh Assembly and Drakeford the ‘demented Dalek’ continue to ignore that fact.
      Scotland voted in a referendum to remain part of Great Britain , but I will leave the posters from Scotland to comment on that ………………………….

    Petition : “Remove Katie Hopkins social media accounts”
    .. so far less than 500 sigs

    “Katie Hopkins is unapologetically racist time and time again yet she still has social media accounts. ”

    Smearing someone with the power-label “racist”
    is aimed at dehumanising and so excluding them
    … and so is bullying.

    [Meant to be attached to Digg’s 6:48 post above]

    Simple, laddie! It’s Dougal McTavish’s golden mathematical formula:

    y = x + /- z

    where x = number allowed in a group or time until easing (England)
    y = number allowed in a group or time until easing (“Scolun”) and
    z = variable decided by the venerable Nicola St Urgeon.

    Hoots (of derision)!

      Karl Marx was a jew.

      There is an idea that goes back to at least the Middle Ages that the world is run for the benefit of bankers, who of course are all Jews.

      But then the anti-banker ideas seem to originate from Jews too.

      That could just mean that Jews are like every other people, there are good and bad. Or perhaps Jews are exceptional so they are exceptionally good at banking and anti-banking?

      In more modern times it does seem odd that the BBC is institutionally anti-semitic yet employs so many Jews! They certainly seem to go in for the self-loathing variety.

      Just my random ramblings, trying to make sense of life, not to put labels on people, most of whom are mostly good.

    WHERE is the bbc apology to DC ? I will be demanding one

    1. Accuracy

    i) The Press must take care not to publish inaccurate, misleading or distorted information or images, including headlines not supported by the text.

    i) A significant inaccuracy, misleading statement or distortion must be corrected, promptly and with due prominence, and — where appropriate — an apology published. In cases involving IPSO, due prominence should be as required by the regulator.

    iv) The Press, while free to editorialise and campaign, must distinguish clearly between comment, conjecture and fact.

    i) Everyone is entitled to respect for his or her private and family life, home, health and correspondence, including digital communications.

    ii) Editors will be expected to justify intrusions into any individual’s private life without consent. In considering an individual’s reasonable expectation of privacy, account will be taken of the complainant’s own public disclosures of information and the extent to which the material complained about is already in the public domain or will become so.

    iii) It is unacceptable to photograph individuals, without their consent, in public or private places where there is a reasonable expectation of privacy.

    3. *Harassment

    i) Journalists must not engage in intimidation, harassment or persistent pursuit.

    ii) They must not persist in questioning, telephoning, pursuing or photographing individuals once asked to desist; nor remain on property when asked to leave and must not follow them. If requested, they must identify themselves and whom they represent.

    iii) Editors must ensure these principles are observed by those working for them and take care not to use non-compliant material from other sources.

    libmob spreading ridiculous false rumours about Cummings sister : list 1, list 2

    Fullfact
    We have seen multiple posts on Twitter and Facebook claiming that Dominic Cummings has a sister called Alice Cummings, who is a director at a company that runs the new track and trace app and was involved in the UK’s postal vote system.

    This is not correct.

    There is an Alice Cummings listed as a company director at Idox PLC,
    but she is not Dominic Cummings’ sister
    and her company is not involved in the track and trace app.

A private bill is unlikely to even get a second reading, this one might, but probably won’t make it past the debate stage. Especially so now as we now have a speaker that upholds long established rules and as importantly in these matters, the traditions of the house.

    Interesting I am gathering the strength (believe me it takes persistence to make a complaint to the bbc they do not make it easy)

    and lo and behold go to the bbc news site and search under complaints it has changed from taking you to the complaints page to a page showing bbc compaints that were upheld in the bbc favour, Xi Ping could take some advice from the bbc

    From Darren Grimes new news Site @ReasonedUK
    worth looking at all the stories

    Michael Cowan from BBC Victoria Live
    Took Grimes on on Twiitter
    claiming his own tweet had only copied the incorrect headline from a Telegraph tweet
    which the Telegraph had then deleted
    Cowan hadn’t used quotation marks

    The Secret Barrister turned up and basically said
    ‘Yeh when the police say MIGHT, that means guilty
    it’s just they leave the final decision to the judge’
    He relied on quoting someone elses tweet
    people then pointed out there is no judge
    the police decide Fix Penalty Fines
    ..The guy whose tweet the SB relied on then deleted his own tweet

    Just watched President Trump announcing his executive order re. social media.

    Why in this age of digital cameras is it necessary to have the room filled with the sound of camera shutter noise?

    The same goes for ‘flash’ photography, these aren’t amateurs taking holiday snaps, they all have ‘back offices’ with amazing digital tools that hardly even need new images to produce the required ‘story’image.

    R4 news at 10pm egging on Sir Roger Gale, who sounds like a cancer in his own party, and him rising to the bait with enthusiasm. Prompt, prompt, prompt. The great Cummings show rumbles on. The pretence that Gale speaks on behalf of the public. What rubbish.
    If you want to know what a LEADING question is, listen to this ‘interview’. Razzia tells him what to say all the way.
    Pretty disgusting treachery, doing Labour’s work for them.
    From beeb, we are used to this sort of thing. As usual, fake news, carefully constructed by them.
    Followed by the usual racist comment on Minneapolis from R4, trying hard to stir.
    More leading questions and prompts from Iqbal. Prompt the word ‘anger’. Manufacture it. Get the interviewee to spell out ‘racist practices’ with the collusion of the Washington Post. Favourite beeb agenda.Why bother to pretend you want an opinion? Why not just speak out your propaganda, and save the money?
    No surprise there, actually.

    Back to 5pm local news
    They did open with “Might have done a minor breach”
    but then they were straight into the new power narrative
    “40 Tory MP’s have now called on Cumming to resign or be sacked”
    .. they implied there is some kind of momentum
    and managed to leave that as the takeaway
    .. before they went into the Daily Briefing live coverage.

    An almost senile neighbour here sits watching Channel4 news maybe cos he fancies the female presenters.
    He’s completely taken in about the 40 MP narrative
    and the idea Cummings is going to fall in a minute
    .. and the thing is he himself is logical on other things like Brexit and Trump .

    Not particularly interesting but Jon Snow also hitting the delete button today
    JuliaHB had tweeted about
    ‘look Jon Snow is at Hay Festival with all these WHITE people.’
    .. today Snow wrote long reply
    … and then deleted after a while
    .. cos she’d pointed out
    ‘bit late Jon, I wrote that last year.’

      I do not live in fear and distaste of those coming here, unlike others

      how many chinese benefit seekers ? or sexual assaulters, precious few if any compared to the bbc favourites

      and a society that welcomes all into their space at, for example, chinese new year RE London, unlike the bbcs favourites

      and a society that does not persist in promoting their religion and “culture in the media and their cultural requirements and demands, unlike the bbc favoured ones

      a culture that adapts rather than the bbc favourites who insist the parent country adapts to their demands even if at odds with our laws

      “Last night’s episode began with a monologue that stood out, even in these partisan times, as brazen propaganda. From the first sentence, it displayed a level of editorialising that should astonish even viewers who agreed with every word. At times, I couldn’t believe I was watching British TV at all. The BBC has since acknowledged that the introduction “did not meet our standards of due impartiality” in a statement released this afternoon…”

    “US President Donald Trump has signed an executive order aimed at removing some of the legal protections given to social media platforms.

    It gives regulators the power to pursue legal actions against firms such as Facebook and Twitter for the way they police content on their platforms.

    President Trump accused social media platforms of having “unchecked power” while signing the order.”

    A sharp rise in incidents of sheep rustling in the UK has transformed the crime from a local issue to a highly organised enterprise worth millions, according to new data.

    Figures from NFU Mutual, which insures over 75% of UK farmers, show £2.5m worth of animals were stolen in 2018 – a rise of 11% since 2016.

    See also: Fleeced: Police failure to tackle sheep rustling exposed

    Livestock rustling has become the most costly crime to the UK’s farming sector after machinery theft, following a spate of well-co-ordinated, large-scale robberies in recent months.

    “A generation ago, rustling was typically a local crime involving a couple of lambs or half a dozen geese being taken for the pot,” said Tim Price, NFU Mutual rural affairs specialist.

    “Now it’s an organised crime with dozens or even hundreds of sheep worth thousands of pounds being taken in a single raid.”

    A recent case in March saw 220 New Zealand Romney ewes stolen from a farm in Wiltshire, one of the biggest raids ever reported in the county.

    Large scale theft – organised crime with livestock destined for the food chain

    NFU Mutual is also concerned by reports of sheep being butchered in fields, leading to fears around food safety.

    One of the most concerning aspects of Boris’s slow walk to freedom twaddle is how pathetically grateful people have become.
    Apparently we can now have meetings with six friends or family members in our gardens. Whoopie!
    Matt Hancock sounded positively sinister when he was talking about track and trace. “We’ll ask people to comply, but if they don’t we’ll compel them.” What country am I living in?
    In a few short weeks the NHS has become a deity. We’ve got enforced mass unemployment. I’m told how many hours I can go out for. And now the authorities are telling me who can use my loo.
    And despite the obvious catastrophic consequences of the lockdown on health, wealth and our essential freedoms, all the media seem concerned about is some geezer who drove too far in his bloody car.
    I never thought I’d see this day…
    It’s quite tragic.

      The likes of the BBC ‘newspaper’(guardian) moans on about ‘the country’s’ mental health ‘……but it you look just at the headings the Guardian has every who’d be surprised about angry strung out snowflakes ?

      It is just relentless on the same themes . I force myself to look at it – only because it is not behind a paywall .

      I wonder what the long term consequences of The experiment to Which we are all being subjected to will be …and fear for the number of suicides when the 2020 numbers are added up.

      And as I’ve said here before – the State now knows how All of the people can be controlled and manipulated – which maybe the most valuable thing of all for them
