    BBC Radio 1 has appointed Aled Haydn Jones as the head of BBC Radio 1. Aled was previously head of programmes on the radio station and has also previously served as producer on the Chris Moyles Breakfast Show.

    A saviour is promoted.

      I used to listen.

      Aled H Jones was a producer who was seen and heard on the show. Part of the ‘zoo’ format where there are a number of voices in the studio, all mainly agreeing with the inane utterings of the host.

      Aled ticks a good number of the AntiBeebs ‘diversity’ boxes.

    I trust the BLM-Antifa hate mob will now turn their attention to an evil cult whose founder captured, owned, bought, sold, traded and raped slaves as well as instructing his followers to do likewise.

    The BBC even admitted this on their webshite, sort of: “Slaves were owned in all Islamic societies, both sedentary and nomadic, ranging from Arabia in the centre to North Africa in the west and to what is now Pakistan and Indonesia in the east. Some Islamic states, such as the Ottoman Empire, the Crimean Khanate, and the Sokoto caliphate [Nigeria], must be termed slave societies because slaves there were very important numerically as well as a focus of the polities’ energies.”

    But look what the slippery slimy beeb add to excuse their favourite cult: “It’s misleading to use phrases such as ‘Islamic slavery’ and ‘Muslim slave trade’, even though slavery existed in many Muslim cultures at various times, since the Atlantic slave trade is not called the Christian slave trade, even though most of those responsible for it were Christians.”

    Can anyone spot the non-sequitur (lie) in that statement?

    In the case of islam such behaviour was practised and actively encouraged by its founder, the ‘perfect man’ whose ideal behaviour is to be emulated by all.

    Jesus of course did none of the above, but preached only love of neighbour and equality of all men and women: “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

    In other words there’s a huge difference between what the followers of a religion do DESPITE the teachings and example of their founder, and what is done BECAUSE of the teachings and example of the founder.

    BBC up to their Taqiya tricks, as usual.

      Perhaps some police witnessed the event and were left to pick up the pieces, the imagery filed away with all the others to resurface who knows when. Absolutely tragic for the family concerned, how much better if the police had simply walked away and told the ‘protesters’ to deal with it. Reminded of an RT piece.

        It reminds me of when protestors used to set themselves alight trying to burn the American flag in the Middle East. That was always good for a laugh.
        That Mirror report quotes a protestor at the toppling of a Christopher Columbus statue in Minnesota:
        ‘Chelsea Higgs-Wise, another activist at the demo, said: “We have to start where it all began. We have to start with the people who stood first on this land.”’

          I heard the Mayor of Minneapolis misspeak in print via the BBC web-site that the demonstrators wrecking his city in the first day/night of protest had good reason for the past 400 years of history.

          Americans are normally taught their national history to some detail and with a measure of thoroughness that is lacking in the UK. The Mayor of Minneapolis is not stupid, think he may hold not one but two degrees at Bachelor level, so I did some research as to what he might be referring to.

          I was surprised – astonished even – to find not that the American Indians had African slaves and farmed sugar or cotton but that Wiki (usual disclaimers) suggests that some scholars now think the original inhabitants were Caucasians who walked over the land bridge into Alaska and down into the USA and across to the east coast.

          Am more than a little distraught at all those stories of early British settlers and their relationships with American Indians and cowboy & Cavalry tales that I enjoyed as a kid were all false.

    LCS – Your statement, which you have not disputed or attempted to dissociate yourself from, was “We kneel with all those opposing anti-Black racism.”
    LCS – I put it to you, Suck Here, that you are a racist.
    KS – I deny that.
    LCS – Your position is that you oppose one specific type of racism, “anti-Black racism”.
    Nothing whatsoever in your statement indicates antipathy towards any other racism.
    So strongly do you support this uniracial racism, that you were prepared to adopt an obeisant, grovelling, posture
    (unsuitable for the position, you hopefully temporarily, hold) to promote it in the media.
    More so than when receiving a knighthood from Her Majesty.
    This clearly indicates that you are totally unsuitable for low office.
    KS – You are taking my words out of context.
    LCS – “We kneel with all those supporting Black racism”, a simplification of mine which reflects the policy actually being followed by the Labour Party.
    The good news, “Forensic” Suck Here, is that I am only a man on the Carlisle omnibus contributing to a website.
    Hopefully charges will be brought against you with regard to concealment of mass, racist, gang rapes.
    When, under cross-examination, you will show the resilience of a flabby Brylcreemed haddock and be given a life
    sentence.

    BBC s***- stirring, part 248.

    ‘How did going back to school lose the plot?’ They ask on their live stream.

    A thinly veiled criticism.

    They, like all socialists, see everything through nationalised eyes, don’t they?

    How about this? Ask the Unions, who fought tooth and nail to keep the schools closed. Ask head teachers, who are in overall charge of education for children in their care.

    Many teachers are pretty well meaning and would be happy to create remedial help. They need a lead from government but don’t need to be micro-managed.

    The ultimate failure of socialism is the idea that the centre alone knows all the best answers and no-one else can be allowed to contribute other be managed like brainless automatons.

    I’m perhaps becoming a bit confused here, but they’ve torn down a statue to Columbus…. who, apparently (according to the rhyme I remember) got to America in 1492 A.D.

    The latest ‘thinking’ – and I really do use that word lightly, BLM et al reckon US history started in 1619 A.D., with the arrival of the first black Africans.

    So, Columbus preceded any black Africans by around 127 years – but BLM is utterly pissed at him anyway…..

    I’m really not seeing the connection here.

    I wonder when the BBC will start asking the pertinent question “What do we do with statues linked to paedophilia?”
    The statues that plaster Broadcasting house were sculpted by Eric Gill, a truly repulsive excuse for a human being.
    He molested his younger sister, had sex with two of his daughters and even messed about with the family pooch. Just thinking about this bloke makes my flesh crawl.
    However, despite his crimes being well known, his statues still adorn Beeb Towers.
    You might have thought, what with the BBC’s rather “unfortunate history” with concealing paedophiles within their employ, that they’d be only too glad to swiftly to get rid of these ghastly reminders, but no…

    They’ve learned nothing from the shocking Savile scandal, when it became apparent they had concealed Britain’s most prolific child abuser for five decades. And knowing this they still gave him his own kids TV show, Jim’ll Fix it. Yes, I bet he did!

    They’ve also employed Stuart Hall and Rolf Harris. And as we now know the BBC authorities knew full well what these “men” were doing. What we don’t yet know is how many more are still there hiding under their slimy rock.

    I wonder if Mayor Khant will be tempted to put forward a commission looking into some of these activities and perhaps decide the Gill statues have to be removed.

    Hmm, thinking about it perhaps not It could be a tad culturally insensitive.
    Considering the inclinations of many in his own community…

    I am subscribed to a number of professional software and development tools websites due to my occupation as a web developer.

    This week I noticed that I was getting a flood of emails with what I perceive as virtue-signalling anti-racist or BAME matter or undertones.

    It seems that a fair few companies have decided to ‘get with the program’ and wave their virtue flags.

    I have no particular beef with the ’causes’ they have thrown their virtuous support behind but I think this trend for companies to wave the flag is mis-placed in business and as a potential customer decided that they won’t be selling anything to me anytime soon.

    Therefore I have been relentlessly unsubscribing from any outfit trying to wave this flag at me. I may want to buy their services or product but don’t need their ‘how to be a good citizen’ messages.

    I find it irritating and false and almost certainly reflects the view of the ( probably woke ) marketing department or advertising agency rather than the Company itself.

    I hope many more people see through this charade and get irritated enough to vote with their feet.

      I noted someone on here mentioning that Jim Davidson, ‘ex(terminated)-BBC comedian, had his own ‘vlog’.

      As it happens I came across it last week. Much of what he had to say seemed reasonable and ‘common sense’.

      Then he went on to tell us that one reason that BLM was wrong was that society had moved on, ‘we only had to see all those blacks in the sofa and bank adverts’.

      I don’t think he was joking. I think he was being serious. He has conceded to their point of view.

      This is all very dangerous: “We are all Martians now, but some are more Martian than others, perhaps we should eliminate those who aren’t Martian enough?”

      Lately we have seen Julia Hartley-Brewer walking backwards, Nigel Farrage has long done it, deliberately blind to the hijabed-elephant. Criticism of the BBC on the one hand is the weak, “you don’t present our case at all. ” against the strong, “You don’t push our case strongly enough“, (we get it ‘just about right’).

      We don’t even hear people dare to say now, “I am not racist, but…”, if they had a platform they would be lynched.

      Where are the voices promoting a positive future? Why can’t we take the best of the past or present and build a better future? That is the sort of message that used to motivate our young men in particular to do great things.

      A few years ago I saw a lecture when one of those ‘heroes’ of the destructionists, Noam Chomsky, a snake who goads these people on, turned on one of his fans in the audience and asked them what future they were trying to build? It was quite clear that it all was just an amusement to him. “I can pull it down, so I will!”, like a destructive child, or a BBC ‘journalist’ fanning the flames that will destroy us all.

      Is there no-one left prepared to take on these barbarians? Not to retreat on the killing field of the destructionist’s choosing but to make a positive pincer move cutting off the head of this beast and freeing mankind from the cancer of evil hatred promoted by the BBC and its pals?

      What do you think the BBC’s reaction now would be to MLK’s “I have a dream” or JFK’s “Ask not what America can do for you” if instead Donald Trump or Boris Johnson was saying something similar? There is no ‘progress’ in ‘progressivism’ so stop pretending.

        It’s up to us to write the history NOW. Of course, we know that such history will be officially banned but somehow, truth will out.

    The statues are bad enough, they are of course just a beginning, but the real damage is the silencing and casting out of anyone who dares to speak critically of the BLM extremists.

    The BBC has suspended one presenter for daring to suggest ‘all lives matter’, many other people have been reported to be sacked or asked to step down for similar transgressions and the latest victim of the purge is Nigel Farage at LBC for daring to tell it like it is….BLM is the Taliban.

    Is there any wonder that when you tune in to the BBC not one presenter dares to even hint at being in the slightest bit critical[as if they would anyway]…in fact they go out of their way to promote the cause and push the message that Blacks in this country are oppressed and the victims of a terrible racism. The BBC is fronting much of this with its bame presenters who I’m sure are entirely unbiased, unrejudiced and completely balanced and neutral on the subject.
    We’ve had Clara Amfo and Nihal makng highly emotive and personal statements denouncing white people as racists, we’ve had Dotun Adebayo turning every show into a BLM platform with his a similar take on things from him and every report seems to be by a bame presenter talking about ‘our community’. Fair and balanced?

    Police officers getting beaten up on our streets? The BBC’s sensationalist and deeply problematic and provocative championing of the BLM’s narrative stokes the violence….and there will be much more….and when the backlash comes…even more.

      This marks the beginning of the collective state media’s attempt to squash any response to the BLM thugs who will be defacing monuments this weekend.

      The media have made it clear – any opposition to BLM and Antifa has links to the Nazis. Expect Antifa and their uniformed wing (Cresside’s Division) to attack patriots who may try to protect our monuments this weekend.

    We have now imported the conflict to the dinner table. The missus wanted to know “why I was so left-wing at uni and am so right-wing now?”
    It was difficult to explain to her that I was centrist and conservative then, and I am centrist and conservative now. No problems with equality and respect for all, but when things are manipulated in pursuit of something quite different, but sticking to these ‘old’ labels, that I become irritated. I tried an example:
    We were living in Germany when the wall came down, and there you have a classic illustration: when the whole political and media system moves to the ‘Left’, but an individual remains the same, they suddenly become ‘Right’.
    Merkel’s CDU policy in 1989 is the same as the AfD policy now, but the AfD are suddenly almost ‘neo Nazis’. How come? Simple: the current CDU/SPD (socialist) ‘grand coalition’ under Merkel has moved way over to the ‘Left’. The AfD are a genuine threat to her power, so they have to be demonised. The crucial success of that piece of trickery is that German MSM play along with her.
    She pretends to be conservative, they agree. She says borders cannot be enforced, and that there is ‘no alternative’ to that policy. (Hence the birth of the AfD: an Alternative for Germany). She does away with nuclear power overnight to go Green. She spends money like crazy, including a huge bribe to Erdogan to do the border enforcement in Turkey. Yup, that will work well…
    I could go on, that’s only a small part of it. She turned the “Rechstaat” (LawState) on its head by breaking laws like crazy. Judges and the media go along with this. Anything beginning to sound vaguely familiar?
    I have no problem with female leaders, if they are there because they are competent leaders. I remember Golda Meir (with admiration), Indira Ghandi (indifferent but no problems) and Maggie Thatcher (with admiration). All there because they were LEADERS, not because they were female.
    I don’t kike Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, a Merkel clone who has been appointed as her successor in best Politburo fashion. I have a suspicion as to the key reasons.
    I now look at Britain and can work out more or less what’s going on. But hey, what do I know?
    I’m SO Right wing!

        I should have mentioned another giveaway: Last century, when the CDU was in government, it vigorously opposed and condemned the opposition: the socialist SPD. Now the only meaningful opposition is the AfD.
        Even more of a giveaway: the socialist SPD also governed. Even its Chancellors (Prime Ministers in G) were well to the Right of Merkel! A person like Helmuth Schmidt wouldn’t recognise the present day, that’s how far the goal posts have moved.
        Anyway, as I write, R4 is having a go at President Trump. Who would have thought? Apparently the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs has apologised for appearing with the Donald. Former Secretary Cohen says the Defence Sec has also differed with him. Now Kumarasami is using leading questions, as to whether more of Trump’s cabinet should apologise. Cohen obediently plays ball….almost as if he’d been fed the answers to read out. Almost like listening to Obama himself. Will they soon start apologising for their existence?
        Our James knows -like all other R4 ‘news’ presenters, how to prompt all answers. Competition for Ritula Shah. Listen and learn. The interviewee needen’t even pitch up, it’s so manipulated! Talk about ventrilowhatsit.

      My mother used to use prune juice on black eyes.
      I cannot remember whether it worked or whether it was all we had.

        I don’t know about prune juice for black eyes but I have found it pretty effective treatment for an under active arsehole.

      Pity we can’t go back to Robespierre, Trostsky, Castro et al, and give them all a little makeover, eh?

        Well remembered, Oaknash! From Wiki (under ‘Personal Life’):

        “Collymore had a relationship with Ulrika Jonsson which ended after he punched her in The Auld Alliance bar in Paris on 9 June 1998 on the eve of the Scotland v Brazil opening football match at the 1998 FIFA World Cup.[37][38][39] Since talking in 1999 for the first time about his experience of depression,[40] he has supported the charity Depression Alliance.[41]

        In 2004, Collymore was accused of taking part in dogging at Cannock Chase by an undercover News of the World reporter.[42] He lost his job at BBC Radio 5 Live over the incident.

        He is a supporter of Republic, a campaign group that campaigns for an elected UK head of state.[43][failed verification] He supported the Labour Party before leaving them for the Scottish National Party in December 2015 after a notable minority of Labour MPs supported airstrikes in Syria.[44]

        He stated in his autobiography that he has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.[45]”

Global is ensuring ‘freedom of speech, but only if I agree with it’.

    ‘A coconut is a term used by brown people about other brown people if they are not seen to be helping the cause of brown people. It is a political term used about a dishonest, unethical, shameless servant of racists, the servant being from the same background as most of his victims.’

    BBC comic, Muslim, calls Priti Patel a ‘coconut’ by implication….suggesting she doesn’t like curry because she’s ‘gone native’….a touch too ‘British’ for his liking….

    The comments from fellow Muslims all seem to agree….racism? Patel is of course Indian Hindu not Pakistani Muslim.

    The BBC itself loathes Hindus and never misses a chance to criticise Modi much as it never misses the chance to attack Israel.

    Hatred of Hindus and Indians seems rife on the Left…here’s a recent Guardian racist tract attacking Patel….written, funnily enough, by a Muslim….

    ‘Last week, the “most Indian cabinet” in British history realised a long-standing dream of the Tory right: the introduction of a purposely cruel “points-based” immigration system. Finally, as many were quick to point out, we saw the limits of “representation politics” laid bare – the home secretary, Priti Patel, and the three other British Indians appointed to Johnson’s cabinet will only embolden Tory racism.’

    Hugely dishonest statement here…

    ‘When this group of Indians arrived in Britain, many brought with them the considerable wealth they had accrued (along with a hostility towards black Africans). ‘

    What’s missing? The fact that they were driven out of Kenyan…and it was into a Labour run Britain….but did manage to get in a slur that they had exploited Blacks, taken their wealth and were racists….rather than hard working, successful asylum seekers…who would normally be heroic victims in the Left’s eyes.

    Here’s Shazia Mirza, Muslim, denouncing conservative Asians as ‘coconuts’…race traitors…..and she still works at the BBC….

    Oh, what a rotten bunch of coconuts
    Published in: Boundless April 8, 2019

    ‘I was awoken by the radio the other day: ‘Home Secretary Sajid Javid has decided to strip ISIS bride Shamima Begum of her British citizenship.’
    And then along comes Uncle Sajid Javid, fresh off the boat from Rochdale. If there’s one thing you can depend on, it’s one of my lot to stab one of my lot in the back. He looks like all of our uncles: smiley, jolly, bald, maybe had one too many curries. The only difference is, this one has the soul of Enoch Powell.
    Sajid Javid according to the Twitterati is an Uncle Tom, a sell out, and the slur of all racial slurs: a right wing ‘coconut’.

    A coconut is a term used by brown people about other brown people if they are not seen to be helping the cause of brown people. It is a political term used about a dishonest, unethical, shameless servant of racists, the servant being from the same background as most of his victims.
    Some people think the term ‘coconut’ is brazenly racist. It could be, depending on the way that it’s used. When I refer to Sajid Javid as a coconut, I am not referring to his skin colour; I am referring to his lack of loyalties and patriotism towards a group of people from the same background.
    What Shamima Begum did was stupid, dangerous, disloyal, un-Islamic and depraved. She should be heard, tried, punished, and maybe she should have her British passport revoked, but Sajid Javid should not be the type of person to do it. Uncle Sajid is the Home Secretary, so unfortunately it is actually his job to do it, but he shouldn’t have done it as a fellow Muslim and brown person. He should have some unconscious loyalty towards Begum.

    Thank God my lot have Rageh Omaar, Mo Farah, Sadiq Khan and Trevor McDonald to depend on.

    If we leave it to the others this country will be run by coconuts who will try and deport me. Unless, of course, chief coconut deports himself first.’

    It seems to me that the screaming progressive tendency has started to get a bit jumpy. They are not very sharp but even they can see that whipping up tension between communities here is not so bright. The vast majority up to now have been silent but watching Poole you can see that the wind is changing and fast. The council leaders looked way out of their comfort zone. Even our supine police might think twice about taking on the utterly respectable and elderly residents of Poole .
    Also there is genuine outrage about the Cenotaph. The police failed to protect it. It is our national symbol and means much to millions. It will not take much to ignite real trouble that all will regret. The media has overstepped the line. Sky and the BBC are the worst.
    In many parts of the country there were no race relation troubles at all. WE could be put back several generations unless the trouble makers back off. The trouble makers being the media.
