    Robert Baden-Powell: Scout founder statue to be removed in Poole

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-dorset-53004638

    ‘A statue of the man who founded the Scout movement is being removed from Poole Quay amid fears it is on a “target list for attack”.

    BCP Council said it was removing the Robert Baden-Powell statue for its protection on police advice.

    The authority said it recognised some aspects of his life were considered “less worthy of commemoration”.

    The statue faces Brownsea island in Poole Harbour, where the Scout movement founded by Baden-Powell began.

    Baden-Powell has been criticised by campaigners who have accused him of racism, homophobia and support for Adolf Hitler.

    Former Bournemouth East Labour parliamentary candidate Corrie Drew was one of those calling for the monument to be taken down, the Local Democracy Reporting Service said.

    She said his “documented homophobia, racism and enthusiastic support of Hitler” could not be excused by him founding the Scouting movement.

    BCP Council leader Vikki Slade said the life-size statue, installed in 2008, was being removed temporarily for “its protection” later on Thursday and put into safe storage.

    “We have had police advice that this statue is on a target list for attack and due to its proximity to the water and its delicate and historic nature I was asked to approve its temporary removal,” she said.’

    And here is the unelected Labour candidate:

      “Support or shut up”– and who declared you to be der Fuhrer, Ms Drew ? Last time I looked, this was my country as well as yours, and I did not give you permission to speak, and I don’t need your permission to speak.

      And, just for the record – most people in the UK don’t give a sh*t what you and your ilk have to say – thank goodness. Try saying something useful for a change instead of your cringing, virtue-signalling, grovelling drivel, then come back and ask us to forgive you.

      Any chance you’ll have a few words to say about that policeman attacked by a bunch of the people you kow-tow to on the news this morning…… nah, thought not.

    ‘Lockdown restrictions are gradually being eased across the UK, but the rules are different in each of the four nations. So what can you do now and who can you meet?’

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51506729

    I find the notion that a British government is able to make up such restrictions on personal liberty both ludicrous and deeply disturbing. Or is that just me? Are we in a perpetual emergency situation or not?

    The new developments in recent days; the retreat on schools re-opening in the face of union opposition, which maintains the handbreak on a proper return to employment for parents; the mad mandating of mask wearing which will further intrench fear and paranoia; and the free pass awarded to certain brands of protest – these add up to the forfeit of my support for this government’s daft health policies.

    I suppose that if one starts from a point of anti-patriotism then there’s the benefit that you can’t feel let down by your home country. So the Left and the BBC (but I repeat myself) will revel in the complexity of each new potty and petty regulation. Just read the BBC article, they are loving this. The lawyerish hunger for loopholes and contradiction provides infinite grist to the mill.

    The pain of loving your own nation is that you can be truly hurt by its behaviour.

      “I find the notion that a British government is able to make up such restrictions on personal liberty both ludicrous and deeply disturbing. Or is that just me? Are we in a perpetual emergency situation or not?”

      The current/expiring ‘Lockdown’ is a mere warm up to get the public acquainted for the main event: The Lockdown coming when the UK has to announce another National Emergency, this time when the collection of disparate Communists under the guise of numerous popular groups such as BLM, converge and overcome the police at Downing St and take over No. 10.
      Then you will see some lampposts in use for more than illumination.

    You have won second prize in a beauty contest card to be scrapped, or replaced by ‘You have all won a beauty contest’ card
    ‘Extortionate Parking £200 to pay for climate catastrophe’ square
    Blackmosque Road square to replace Whitechapel Road square.
    Bank Looting in your favour, extract £200 card
    You have been protecting statues card, go directly to jail, do not get trial, do not collect free solicitors contact details.

    this is just for starters……wot next, replacing spade suit in playing cards with something less hatey?

    At least we are still getting ‘On the Buses’ re-runs, so all is not lost.

    9am Radio4 schedule change and Melvyn’s prog about SLAVERY book from 2018 is repeated.

    Prog opens with woman talking about a book where it says the white slave owners beat the female slaves until they bled.
    She said “the women resisted *by any means necessary*”
    .. Yes I expected her to be a race baiter
    but weird she came straight out with Alinsky’s slogan.

    \\ 1845 told his story in Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave
    born into slavery in Maryland in 1818 and,
    once he had escaped, became one of that century’s most prominent abolitionists.
    He went on to address huge audiences in Great Britain and Ireland and there some of his supporters paid off his owner, so Douglass could be free in law and not fear recapture.
    Later arguing against those such as Lincoln who had wanted freed slaves to leave America and found a colony elsewhere. //

    “he was amazed that monarchical Britain didn’t have slavery
    .. although republican America did”

          G – Let it be said that they are also counting on the millions who will be flooding into Europe, including the Britain, as we speak. A hijacked vessel has just forced Malta to take on 500+ more knife-wielding thugs, who threatened to blow up gas canisters on board. (Coming in from Lybia.)

          In the olden days they would have been KEELHAULED for that! Now they are taken in to have asylum claims assessed. (I learnt about keelhauling in school…)

          Tens of millions of young people with nothing but Nikes and top of the range mobiles are on their way from Africa.
          Oh, and they tend to be male, and the odd knife here or there can be tucked under the Manchester football shirt. Take your pick of which club.
          This is the Mediterranean route. Erdogan is further East, waiting to let the Balkans have full blast from ‘migrants’ awaiting THAT route, in Turkey.
          Don’t believe, for one minute, that this is unconnected to the BLM movement. They are bringing in reinforcements (as if any were needed). Maybe not directly controlling, but there is a manipulating hand further back, hidden from view, who has the full picture of the ‘battlefield’.
          Leaders in Europe are not remotely prepared. Even worse, they do not have the WILL to do anything but submit to the invasion.

      When you’re facing an enemy that will do whatever it takes to destroy and humiliate your culture, there is only one option: to stand firm. And -regrettably- you have now to also do whatever it takes to preserve and defend your culture!
      Treating thugs with kid gloves cos they have ‘weaponised’ this ‘racism’ thing is leading to a complete polarisation in society. Complete anarchy and the total collapse of Law and Order, beckon.

      We also have to deal firmly with the Media, I fear, if they support the thuggery. I will not buy another hard copy of the Telegraph ever, after their language used to describe the conflict developing between BLM and patriots defending statues. I will not subscribe to Telegraph, not even for £1; they keep sending me subscription requests, but to me they are just more dirt now in my eyes. I will never again soil my hands. Hand sanitiser would be needed: some media perpetuate a virus that is WORSE than Coronavirus.
      We need to make a list of advertisers here who support the BLM anarchy on ITV, Channel 4 etc and BOYCOTT them. Circulate please,

        The McPherson report was probably written with the present outcome as its ultimate goal. Blair used it to force the CCs to become Woke ( although the term was invented then of course) and spread Wokism throughout the ranks. I imagine that if a PC or lower rank didn’t conform they were discriminated against but early adopters and zealots were promoted. Give that process a decade or so and you have the police service that we have today. . One much more interested in enforcing the values of Wokism than in enforcing the law.

        Absolutely.
        But it would help to actually teach History: the subject is frequently ditched, and yet it is so vital.
        And it needs to be taught, not by guilt-ridden, virtue -signalling postmodernists, but in a balanced way that shows both the good and the bad of any person or any thing, and gets learners to think and judge for themselves on the basis of all the available info, not just the selected.
        I despise teachers who climb on to the BLM bandwagon cos it’s ‘fashionable’,

          Interesting thought. At what point do you think the media really picked up on Obama?

          Thing was, RD, Obama was the outsider. The media did not really pick up on him at first. I was in the US from just before Labor Day onward in 2007 and the media there were largely writing him off as the Primaries really got under way or were asking ‘can he really do it?’ just to get the nomination, not even win in November 2008. Even when I got back a month or so later, the media there and here were still voicing uncertainty about Obama or so it seemed to me.

          Then the ‘Yes, we can’ message clicked and it became more certain that he would get the Democratic nomination. But there was further to go to become President. Obama was able to surf the wave, I think, once he got the nomination.

          Contrast to 2020, where Biden appears to be drowning in the Floyd violence and destruction.

    I don’t know about anyone else on here, but this talk of reducing the 2 metre rule to 1 metre is really going back to normal living, I mean, how close does anyone get to other people in their previous every day life anyway? When I’m talking I have a comfort zone of a minimum of 2 ft, and generally start backing off if they start getting closer (unless I want them to).

    My biggest bugbear are restaurants that squeeze you in like sardines, and particularly those where you sit cheek by jowl to the next customer, then getting up to leave can be an obstacle course of squeezing past occupied chairs. Perhaps I’m just getting old, as I find restaurant food ain’t that brilliant anymore, and feel I could eat better at home, and cheaper.

      They were so pleased in the amount they saved in OAPensions from a clear out of the care homes that they thought very carefully about the next, ‘Trickle Down’ phase. Make life out there as ‘normal’ looking as humanly possible to get the hitherto wary OAP’s out and about and infected.

    • Up2snuff says:

      Brissles, you are right. I seem to recall a programme about personal space some decades ago, may have been on the BBC in their long lost ‘inform and educate’ phase. Seem to recall that around three feet or a metre is the ‘personal space’ of a human unless family, friends, colleagues or teachers, are allowed in closer. Someone researched all this years ago – hence the TV programme.

      The two metre thing therefore has some natural sense behind it – two people in a space two metres/six feet for oldies apart leaves each others personal space intact. Obviously in a small shop or cafe or Post Office aisle widths may not permit that when passing others. However, if someone is going to infect another it would take some really good timing for the sneeze or cough of one to coincide with the inward breath of the other. If the droplets are to remain on a face to infect ‘the recipient’ later, it would surely require the one coughing to be exactly the same height or slightly taller than the other. How often does that happen?

      I think the most likely high risk – outside of very crowded public transport (think jam packed underground train) – is via a surface transfer. Which takes us back to restaurants, cafes and pubs, things like table edges, chair backs and so on.

      Brissles – I heard some pillock from one of the teaching Unions on the BBC Today programme the other day spout that reducing the 2-metre spacing rule to 1 metre would only add 3 pupils per classroom to the existing apparent maximum of 15 !!!

      Now, I dunno about you, but I suspect Diane Abbott probably had something to do with these numbers – they sem to be in her league. No challenge, or even wonderment at that number, from the BBC, though

      Or – heaven forbid, teaching Unions just do not want to go back to work – something that perhaps only getting 20% more salary and 20% more teachers, and 20% more classroom asssitants, head teachers and administrators would help to solve the problem.

      Pupils in more parent-supportive, or private schools (where they really are paid by results, not by a self-assessment of performance by teachers) really will be streets ahead of many others – and poverty/wealth has way less impact than effective support from parents. Just look at whether performance by children from Indian or Far-Eastern parentage will suffer to the extent of children of some other characteristics – no matter how lacking they might be in money.

    ‘Politicsweb’ is no ‘Right Wing’ publication. Oh no, it is firmly liberal. But, unlike the bbc or the Guardian/Independent/Telegraph, it is not afraid of BALANCE and TRUTH!
    We get a brief look into the infamous ANC torture camps, i.a.’Camp Quatro’ in Angola.
    We look at the many brutal methods of ANC torture.
    Allt his under Comrade Mandela, member of the Communist Party of SA. His statue is safe as houses, here in Britain, and in Sandton, SA.
    The utter HYPOCRISY all about us stinks to high heaven!
    Even now, torture continues apace in SA, whites singled out for special attention, and beeb’s much-celebrated Saint, for whose death they even interrupted all their programmes to bring us days of propaganda, lives on as a hero!

      Fakenewswatcher – a propos Mr Mandela…. does the same rule apply to him that applies to others – i.e. it does not matter what good he has done at some point in his life – it cannot wipe away the bad things he has done…… so……… he was a murdering terrorist who smuggled out plans and directives from Robben Island for attacks on, and the deliberate murder of white people. So he was a racist terrorist as well.

      Over to you BLM/Antifa supporters (as in Sinn Fein/IRA – terrorists embedded willingly among the ‘innocent’)… do the rules apply across the board, or not. I think we may know what your answer is likely to be.

    TOADY Watch #1 – Awake early again to negativity

    6 a.m. News just heralds the waves of negativity I know I’m going to get throughout the programme from the Knaves of Wegativity a.k.a. the BBC. I switched off after the first look at the newspapers.

    I hope the PM publishes the SAGE advice at some time so that we can see what Ferguson was consistently recommending. Currently it appears that ‘hell hath no further like an adviser resigned’ so I suspect all is not as it seems. Would the TOADY programme ask questions about that?

    On Facebook it is possible (privacy settings willing) to go down the ‘friend of a friend’ route. Some time ago I did this and came across a page of a middle-aged white man who clearly thinks he is a ‘good person’ as he posts about the charity work that he does.

    (I must admit to a bit of schadenfreude when at the start of the lock-down he started bleating that his income stream had dried up as his ‘work’ was raising money for charity, i.e. he took his ‘cut’ from his virtuous work.)

    What I find really sad is that clearly he would take an opposing line to that taken by most that post here and that many of his friends are like-minded. How could he be so deluded?

    But what really saddens me is what he posts and re-posts, pretty much continual pieces showing snarling Trumps and Farrages loaded with hate, most of it lies and untruths.

    Perhaps it is because I was brought up in the Judeo-Christian tradition but this hatred cannot be right. It harms others but it mostly harms oneself – it eats away from the inside. It is a really depressing to see people like the Archbishop of Canterbury pushing messages of hate not ‘love’ for political reasons. (I am not bothered about his religious ‘message’, just his message for ‘humanity’).

    What I am trying to say is that it is OK to disagree, even to strongly disagree but hate is a different matter, fortunately not often seen here but we should (self) guard against.

    Finally a little plea: Can the Twitter fans hunt down the cartoon by ‘scarecrowbar’ on ‘hypocrite’ re. ‘black lives matter’ and post it here? Anyone that needs a twelve-frame cartoon to make a point has no argument!

        It’s BS, cos no character would equate changing their mind with hypocrisy, they are not the same thing.

        Hypocrisy, is a BLM protester saying they are caring and then doing something uncaring like vandalism or violence against police.

        The rest of a cartoon is a lie, the US ‘state’ is definitely not targetting ‘blacks’, (if it was they would have been put on trains and sent to the ‘shower blocks’ not knocked off one-by-one), it isn’t even true numerically.

        Once the commies have finished destroying and desecrating all the statues, expect them to go after Christians and the cross.
        Vandalising crosses in cemeteries, crosses on churches, crosses on war memorials.

        In my opinion, this will be the logical conclusion of what they are doing now because destruction of Christianity has always been one of the main objectives of the Marxists.

        The question is, if the police will not protect our statues and heritage, will they protect our churches and Christian symbolism?

    Today’s Times has much of its content devoted to BLM, statue toppling, sports stars empathising and so on, with in-depth investigations and descriptions of the slave trade itself, concentrating to a large degree on ‘Britain’s Shameful Past’.
    True, some small space is allocated to Wilberforce and others but, read and re-read as I will, not one word is devoted to African and Arab involvement – despite what the MSM obviously regard as the unpalatable and unprintable facts that without the eager, efficient, lucrative and utterly soulless activities of tribal ‘fellow’ Africans and Arabs from North Africa to Saudi and beyond, the trade would not have existed – or indeed would probably have remained centered on white Irish, Welsh, English, Breton and many other undefended coastal communities.
    Still, at least we can look forward to the BBC and Guardian putting the record straight in the near future.
    PS. While hating to add to Italy’s problems, I feel it only fair to suggest that the whole of the Roman past and associated tourist trade should be defaced and deleted since the Roman Empire – being one of the world’s most savage, inhumane and uncompromising – was based almost entirely on slavery in order to function.

      Jeez, Guest Who – somebody potentially tried to be really polite, it looks like, and got it wrong. She should be grateful that someone even made the effort (so many Asians speak both their ‘mother’ tongue and their local language – I know from wide experience).

      She could have simply said, “Sorry mate, I only speak English !” (you have to imagine the Aussie accent, I am afraid) and no-one really had to take any offence at all.

      Keerist – most people would have either expressed some thanks that an effort had been made, and/or have laughed it off…… but oh, no, not this ……. person. “I’ll take this to the media”, was her first thought. Lovely whatever (certainly not ‘lady’).

      Hope she reaps what she’s sown.

    Er, here is my message to Yorkshire Tea, and the reply is below that………………

    here is a disconcerting story doing the rounds that Yorkshire Tea supports Black Lives Matter, and that if anyone disagrees with this then they are not welcome to buy the product. If this is correct, then I find it disconcerting, because regardless of what anyone thinks, putting an embargo on buying a product is the action of a police state. What next ? If you are not catholic then don’t buy our biscuits, if you are over 70 then you don’t need to buy more clothes. Any right and fair minded person does not tolerate racism in any form, but to turn grocery products into a political agenda is not the way to go either. I love my Yorkshire Gold, and drink nothing else, but if you are making political statements like this, regardless of a person’s beliefs, could result in a backlash. If this story is not true, then accept my apologies. Thank you.

    Hello xxxxxx
    Thanks for your email.

    Racism has no place in our business and we’re against discrimination in all its forms. We want to be inclusive and we value diversity and difference.

    Anti-racism campaigners are raising important issues. We need to hear those and understand what that means for us so we can take proper action.

    We know we have more to do and it might take a little time to do it, but we are fully committed.

    Thanks again for getting in touch. We really value your input.
    Kind Regards,

      @ Brissles 2.09 pm. I got the same email obviously it took them 24 hours+ to put together a standard reply. I informed them today that such a shoddy reply to me meant they were ok with rioting, looting, injuring Police officers and horses, desecrating war memorials and were accepting of our National flag being burnt. Because of that I would no longer be buying any product from them. Being a Yorkshire Lass I won’t throw the ones I have away (waste of money) but I’ll be doing research as to where I spend it in future.

        I have told Yorkshire tea that not only am I boycotting their Taylor’s of Harrogate coffee but will not be going to Betty’s any more when it reopens. I am assuming they won’t be getting many of their Chinese customers on reopening nor parents of York University’s leftie students, they don’t even have many black customers. I can guess that their ladies who lunch don’t go a bundle on supporters of anarchy. The queues to get in could become a whole lot shorter.

    How reassuring that with all the mayhem going on, the BBC finds the time to focus on the really important issue of the day, namely a verbal spat between rich woke lefty feminist JK Rowling and rich woke lefty transgenderist Daniel Radcliffe.

    Personally I’m delighted when the bonkers left turns on itself.

    Of interest in their silly first-world squabble is that Rowling – perhaps sensing she was losing the sympathy of the howling, deranged, trans mob – is now playing the victim card, hoping no doubt it will trump the LGBTWXYZ victim card. My victimhood is bigger than your victimhood.

    “I’ve been in the public eye now for over 20 years and have never talked publicly about being a domestic abuse and sexual assault survivor.”

    Oh, boo-hoo.

    And now other virtue signalling luvvies are piling in to the scrap, like Eddie Redmayne and Emma Watson.

    A curse on both your houses, go and get a real job.

    Although I rarely watch the BBC anymore, over the last week I took a look to see their take on the protests. And how utterly predictable it was.

    Wanting to give BLM a fair chance, I read their website which has a section “what we believe” and it’s a regurgitation of the worst Marxist, activist humanities lecturer stuff.

    BLM is an avowedly Marxist organisation. The whole thing is classic Maoism. The students for the zeal and adherence to the new orthodoxy. The dummies for the oppressed (workers / farmers / “minorites”).

    No wonder the BBC is so sympathetic.

    Surely this whole sorry state of affairs is confirmation that “The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.”

    Thanks for the admin and contributors to this site; it reminds me I’m not alone in my deep concern for the Bolsheviks’ capture of the state.

      About Extinction Rebellion

      Extinction Rebellion is a leaderfull, decentralised, international, nonpartisan network using non-violent direct action and civil disobedience to persuade governments to act justly on the Climate and Ecological Emergency.

      We have the following three demands in most of our territories:

      1. Tell the Truth: Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.

      2. Act Now: Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.

      3. Beyond Politics: Government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.

      Interesting that you are using that phrase.

      Reading the SA press over a few years, STATE CAPTURE was very much what happened under Zuma. It was a natch for the ANC to go that way, being ‘representative’ of the large majority.

      But, who would have thought that WE would be heading down that route? Theoretically, we have no ANC in charge here.

      But we do have Marxist revolutionaries aplenty, it seems? Would explain why the ANC was welcome in London, during all the years of their running torture/murder camps in Africa!!
      I gather that the ANC boss in London simply became the new Amassador to Britain? I would assume that that made Labour very happy.
      Now, it seems, they may just be pulling out of it, over there? Could sanity prevail, as a result of the complete trashing of the SA economy?
      There could be some green shoots: A burglar just get sentenced to 30 years in prison, although I have to double check that!
      A BURGLAR…no violence (to be checked) That would be a turn up for the books!

        It seems the burglar in question was 43-year old Joseph Mahlaba.
        He also got caught with stolen goods. 15 years for the burglary and fifteen years for the possession of the stolen goods, sentences to run concurrently. This happened in a place called Lichtenberg.
        Police Commissioner for the Northwest, Sello Kwena, welcomed the sentence, and said that this “will send a clear message that the police will show no mercy to criminals” (!) He ALSO THANKED THE COMMUNITY POLICE FORUM for working together with the police to “ensure justice”. (South Africa Today – South Africa News – 1528)
        Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but do members of the community in the UK who try to help the police to ‘ensure justice’ not get branded as ‘thugs’ by our media?
        It is conceivable that some ANC apparatchik will try to get the criminal released, but I have to say to Mr Kwena and the CPF: “Well done”.

        What have we come to in Britain when we have to look to a country one rather doesn’t want to look at too closely, for a good example? Is it just possible that the tide is turning there? Perhaps their media aren’t as treacherous as ours?

    Whilst having me dinner the tv was on and the sturgeon was on whining away on the corona situation.

    When she had finished there were the questions.
    What a difference. The questions were straightforward and relevant.
    Compared to our ghastly lot where the questions are childish attempts to get a gotcha moment (what would you say was your biggest mistake Prime Minister or Do you want to apologise for … types of questions)
    It’s awful when the tv screen fills with a hate filled face like Eleanor Rigsby where it resembles a scene from the film 1984 (the red hurts my eyes)

    If I was Boris I’d call them out for their ridiculous questions.

    I read the Sun and the Guardian (but others will be piling in too) are getting quite upset that Patriots are going to guard the statues around the country this weekend. Now that is not fair, than means their violent thuggish marauding band of semi illiterate peasants cannot get to them and they want the police to take action to stop the FAR right.
    Of course the police say they are having discussions to see how to police it (so the morons can have their weekend fun)
    After last weekend’s disgusting police conduct if they suddenly go in for the people guarding the statues not the rioters then the sh*t will hit the fan
