    Absolutely risible shit-stirring questions from the BBC at the news conference.

    Q1. The politics of envy. Poor people are dying of Coronavirus more than rich people.
    Q2. Is it true one of the main news conference participants won’t do them any more because of the Dominic Cummings ‘story’.

    That’s two questions asked by a vastly overpaid ‘journalist’ (LOL) producing absolutely no insight whatever. Completely useless and pathetic and a total waste of licence fee payers money.

        How many senior BBC people will get whacking big redundancy payments when it shuts down ?
        Maybe, just maybe, there is some logic behind their Anti British propaganda ?

      Is rejoiniac a word?

    Government Briefing

    The BBC droid ( just another one ) alleges the chief nurse won’t do the briefings because she refuses to ‘defend’ Dominic Cummings . The BBC just will not let him go . It is beyond normal now – it is an obsession with the BBC News Department .
    It’s as though the BBC has decided to formally become the opposition to the Conservative Government as opposed to asking questions on behalf of the people who still pay for it

    Of all the questions to ask – it’s a Dominic Cummings one . I want to know why people are still getting infected and where this is happening . Is it geographical ? Is it ethnic ? Is it in Care homes or Hospitals ?

    When this data is not provided it makes me suspicious that there is failure by the NHS which is being covered up .

    With regard to the preamble I put up for the weekend thread , I am dreading this weekend because I think full plod will take its failure to deal with the Third World last weekend by taking it out on those who might try and get to the various statues which are under threat from left wing vermin .

    I’ve seen that ‘far right ‘ is already being thrown around by scum such as the mayor of London whose prejudice against those who do not share his values is there to see. He ll be expecting the lefty senior command of the Met to do his bidding ……
    ….. it also seems that the weak PM was woken up to the fact that statues are being covered up to try to remove any justification for good people going into central London to stop them being damaged again .

      Fedup2, today’s edition of UK column news is worth a watch if you have an hour to spare.

      They cover a number of the usual subjects but add some new perspective. One that stood out for me is the evidence relating to deaths, particularly in care homes during the past three months of the lockdown. The prolonged increase in deaths of non-virus causes is very worrying and as one journalist, writing for ( no not the racist far-left bbc) RT reported and asks, where is the public outrage? The idiot Neil Ferguson also crops up to confirm he’s an idiot.

        John – thank you – when the dust settles on this i wonder if any proper objective research can be done on what has / is happening in Care Homes .

        The official stats are corrupt so i guess staff and relatives will be the most likely source of truth .

        That is assuming the theory of Fedup2 – armchair virologist – isnt true – namely that we are only coming to the end of the first half with a half time break of 2 or 3 months then as the climate changes the numbers go up –
        Or nature really has a laugh and sends us a nature generated flu rather thN one manufactured by the Chinese ….

    I have refused to watch or listen to the ravings of the BBC for 2 years now. Not good for the blood pressure. Sent them a complaint telling where they can stuff their licence. Fawlty Towers was the
    final straw. Still at least I can watch my Blazing Saddles DVD with no censorship.

    In search of an attack on the Government there is nobody that the BBC will not use, neither the stupid nor the bereaved. Yesterday on Look North we had grandparents who couldn’t cuddle their new grandchildren. Peter Levy read out an email from a couple who thought it unfair because they were a couple they couldn’t form a bubble with their grownup children’s family. The stupid people obviously couldn’t understand that as a couple they were in a much better place compared to someone who had been on their own for 12 weeks. Obviously Peter Levy was equally stupid that he chose this email to read this out.

    Today just before the briefing we had an interview with a young man whose father had passed away at the peak of the outbreak. His father put off going to hospital whilst suffering with the virus but eventually was admitted and had a heart attack. He may have been due a heart attack anyway but why spoil a story which attacks the government. Of course the young man would think, ‘if only things had been different I might have still had Dad’. And maybe he would. But for the BBC he was just a useful fool with which to attack the government.

    Mr Politico video about the sacking of Farage
    #1 Farage was sacked, cos LBC wording say that his contract had not yet finished
    #2 The pressure came from staff at sister station Capital Xtra
    who seem mostly black

    That is an interesting idea cos when people complained that LBC is mostly white presenters apart from Maajid Nawaz, I pointed ou that the BBC runs 2 almost exlusively no-white stations : SouthAsian Network and 1Extra, I didn’t know that the gay owner of LBC was also running stations that don’t reflect the UK population.

          Fed,

          We had one black guy at in my year at secondary school. In fact, he was the only black guy at my school. To my knowledge, no-one ever gave him grief about the colour of his skin. Indeed, my recollection is that he was pretty well liked.

          Likewise there was a mixed-race lad in my class at primary school. Again, he was unique in that regard. It’s a long time ago but I was pretty chummy with him and don’t recall him ever being the recipient of any racial abuse.

          We weren’t an especially well behaved lot, so I don’t think for a second that the reception that the two lads received wasn’t mirrored in many other schools throughout the UK.

          Perhaps the difference between then and now is that race hucksters were both fewer and number and less voluble in those days.

            I’ve switched from commenting to reading over the last few days . The Momentum crew have manipulated the black thing beyond their wildest dreams and got the reaction they long for – and are hoping to pour petrol on the fire (Literally ) by finding a ‘real ‘ UK grievance such as a bit of police brutality ‘ killing – then the riots can really get going on long summer nights .

            I went to school with all sorts – but that didn’t mean much when you are being intimidated by big black thugs – one of whom -I know – is doing ‘life ‘.
            If this thing is doing one thing in UK – it’s putting race relations back years – whatever the BBCMSM spits out .

            People know this is an artificial imported grievance

              “Patients discharged quickly from hospitals between mid-March and mid-April were sometimes placed in care homes without being tested for COVID-19. On 17 March, hospitals were advised to discharge urgently all in-patients medically fit to leave in order to increase capacity to support those with acute healthcare needs. Between 17 March and 15 April, around 25,000 people were discharged from hospitals into care homes, compared with around 35,000 people in the same period in 2019. Due to government policy at the time, not all patients were tested for COVID-19 before discharge, with priority given to patients with symptoms. On 15 April, the policy was changed to test all those being discharged into care homes. It is not known how many patients discharged to care homes had COVID-19 at the point they left hospital.” – ONS

              I take from that that fewer people were discharged than the previous year (about 70%), i.e. more people than usual were held back in hospital.
              Given that there were concerns that hospitals would be overwhelmed those patients that appeared to be fit were discharged. It isn’t clear whether there was the ability to test everyone in the early days anyway.
              This was a time of unknowns (it still is), do they clear the hospitals and run the risk of being overwhelmed, (i.e. people dying in corridors) or do you cautiously make capacity, (i.e. discharge fewer people than usual and restrict it to people who seem to be fit).
              The media ‘wins’ either way!

      vlad – Yup, that would be Donauwoerth in Bavaria. One of Merkel’s guests from the ‘Willkommenskultur’, most likely.
      The people of Bavaria have -as state government- the CSU, Bavarian sister party of the Merkel CDU, headed up by Horst Seehofer, who has become a virtue-signaller of late. A bit soft, the old man.
      Will they wake up? Doubt it. Why should they even blink? Probably just a champion of ‘equality’ and ‘justice’ expressing his opinion.
      Seehofer has had many a chance to pull out of the alliance and leave her in the proverbial, but has he taken it? Nope. Are we surprised? Nope.
      Rather stick close to the Reds and Greens, Horst. There’s a good boy. No need for Mutti to put you over her knee.

        Update: I tell a lie. I see Seehofer was replaced as CSU party leader by Marcus Soeder last year. I wonder why?
        Seehofer merely remains in place as German Minister of the Interior.
        The national Home Office, in other words. Oh dear…
        The people of Bavaria are not so sleepy, after all. But Mutti kept him on in that key position as a reward for continuing to let in the windshield smashers.
        We kinda feel that’s all vaguely familiar, I think?
        So, now the question is: will Soeder pull out of the alliance and leave her in the proverbial?

      City have three changes from last week: Black Lives Matter returns from suspension, new signing Black Lives Matter leads the attack and Black Lives Matter replaces the injured Black Lives Matter. United’s captain Black Lives Matter had been complaining to his manager recently of too many changes in the team selection: One week he was playing alongside Black Lives Matter, the next week it was with Black Lives Matter and he didn’t know where he was. But today he’ll be happy as it’s an unchanged team with Black Lives Matter, Black Lives Matter and Black Lives Matter forming what looks like a very solid midfield.

      Lyrics
      I am a white man and I’m sorry
      Cos everything is all my fault
      The list of wrongs will never end
      Must spend my life in recompense
      Just being born a white man is assault
      So even though I didn’t do them
      I am the one who you should blame.
      For any kind of injury
      At any time in history
      Even if in antiquity
      The fault so clearly lies with me
      I should be lynched,
      discredited and shamed

      I‘ve googled what I’m to blame for.
      And there is
      Poverty, injustice, global warming, house prices
      Rape gangs, homelessness,
      .. full 5 verses

      (final verse) DEEP BREATH
      He is a white man and he’s sorry
      His role on earth is now complete
      Like dodos, landlines or the fax
      Cassettes, steam engines, betamax
      And now the white man is
      * obsolete *

    Is my eyesight failing me? Is there really no report on the Jewish man stabbed in London by a man of the ‘Asian’ persuasion on the main pages of the BBC website? I keep looking but it ain’t there.

    From the Telegraph…

    ‘The attacker, a man in his forties said to be of Asian descent, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder…’

    The BBC which fills the airwaves and its website with a torrent of nonsense about racism isn’t interested in a man being stabbed in the street in all likelihood because he’s Jewish? Nicky Campbell couldn’t wait to tell how shocked and appalled he was by the racism of ‘On the Buses’ [can’t say I’ve ever noticed…it has a driver called ‘Chalky’ but why is that different to being callled Taff, Jock, Paddy, Scouser or Geordie?] but a stabbed Jew?

    This is the BBC that steadfastly refused to entertain claims that Corbyn and his Party were anti-semitic and only when the stories became too big and too obvious did they start to report them…but they were very quick to pick up on Warsi’s claims of Tory Party Islamophobia…funny that.

    Ah…there is a report…tucked safely away on the London page….how underplayed is this?….

    ‘Stoke Newington: Man stabbed in high street bank’

    If he’d been black instead of Jewish? Bet that’d be frontpage news and ‘Black’ would have featured prominently in the headline….as well as ‘Far-Right’ and hate crime.

    The BBC hasn’t quite expunged all traces of Fawlty Towers’ ‘don’t mention the war’…it’s still on the BBC’s Britbox….

    And not sure why this is unacceptable…..no more offensive than any of the vast array of characters they did….why just the black ones?

    Maybe it was this skit they really didn’t like…because it reminds them of…them….

    John Humphrys slams the BBC for being the campaigning voice of BLM [or should that be ‘BLAME’?]……

    ‘The peculiarly barbaric nature of this killing and the fact that it was filmed by a bystander for all to see is what brought it to the attention of the world. The symbolism could hardly have been more powerful: a white man kneeling on the neck of a black man, ignoring his victim’s ever more desperate gasps of ‘I can’t breathe’.

    Hardly surprising that the organisation Black Lives Matter should have seized on it, nor that ‘I can’t breathe’ should have become a rallying cry at protests across the country. Nor, perhaps, that they should link it with the horror of slavery.

    Unsurprising, too, that they say the murder represents a tipping point. That everything must now change. And that it is white people who bear the responsibility for bringing about those changes. That certainly seems to be the view of the BBC.

    Some of my old friends and colleagues who still work there tell me they are puzzled and a little worried that the BBC seems to have accepted the white guilt verdict. This is not the usual gripe about BBC News occasionally failing in its duty to be impartial.

    Those charges have been made ever since I can remember — and my memory goes back a very long way. Sometimes they are justified, often they are not. This is more serious. It’s about the BBC as a corporate body assuming that it is the conscience of the nation.

    One startling illustration came from Radio Four’s Pick Of The Week. Its top item on Sunday was the murder. Fair enough. But it wasn’t a graphic account of demonstrations or a moving interview with a relative of Mr Floyd.

    No It was a monologue from the Radio 1 presenter Clara Amfo telling her audience why she had not been presenting as scheduled the day before.

    Here’s a flavour: ‘My mental health was in a really bad way. I didn’t have the mental strength to face you yesterday.’ Then there was total silence for several seconds. Ms Amfo was overcome and weeping.

    She eventually recovered and told us the cause of her mental health problem had been ‘the news of another brutalised black body’. And then she added: ‘. . .We know how the world enjoys blackness . . . we know they want our culture but they don’t want us. You want my talent but you don’t want me.’

    This is not a criticism of Ms Amfo breaking down live on air. It is, though, a criticism of the BBC for repeating it. Put aside the absurdity of a successful radio presenter complaining that she is not ‘wanted’; by choosing to repeat it, the BBC is endorsing her sentiments. Is that its job? It was the same with one of Radio Four’s most successful comedy programmes, the News Quiz.

    This time, it was the turn of the black stand-up comedian Sophie Duker. The point of the show is the (often hilarious) ad-libbing by the panellists. But Ms Duker had prepared an announcement.

    First she dismissed the Tory MP Desmond Swayne as a ‘despicable human being’ for comments he’d made about rioters and looters and then she said: ‘If arsonists and looters have it coming (to them) then so do the Royal Family, the British Museum and the council that opted for cheaper and more flammable cladding.

    They had better watch their backs. ‘From Windrush to Grenfell . . . Stephen Lawrence to Sarah Reed… our nation has blood on its hands. These protests are about Diane Abbott and Meghan Markle… about you and me and those who clean your streets and save your lives.’

    When she finished, the rest of the team applauded. And Angela Barnes, who was presenting the show, announced: ‘If 500 people were in this studio they should feel uncomfortable and awkward… we bloody well should.’ This show was pre-recorded and broadcast twice.

    The BBC believes there is racism in this country and its director of news has said so. She’s right. Of course there is. I doubt there is a multicultural country on earth where it does not exist in one form or another — and probably never has been.

    But that’s not the point. The point is whether all of us are ‘guilty’. All of us whites, that is. By nailing its colours so firmly to the Black Lives Matter mast, the BBC has made clear where it stands. This is troubling.

    The BBC is our national broadcaster. It is our voice. But if it is not seen to give a platform to those who hold different views, we enter dangerous territory. By unquestioningly accepting the claim of BLM that we are all racists whether we realise it or not, it has effectively become a campaigning organisation.

    In doing so it risks creating the very thing it stands against — a more polarised society. The BBC has an obligation to bring people closer together. This new accusatory tone — an undiscriminating roll call of white sins across all its channels — can only lead to division.

    How long before there are marches behind banners declaring ‘White Lives Matter’? Note that the odious Tommy Robinson and his followers are making an unwelcome reappearance.

    Many white people will have listened to those two black women I’ve just quoted, and will say: ‘I do not want the BBC to apologise on my behalf. I abhor racism. I have always treated black people in the same way I treat white people. I am not to blame for slavery or Grenfell Tower or those disgraceful police officers who abuse their power to single out young black men for harassment or worse. I believe what happened to the Windrush immigrants was disgraceful. I am a decent person who happens to be white.’

    If we want to judge whether every white is guilty of racism, let’s look at our children and grand­children rather than listen to the Twitter mob or a sobbing radio presenter.

    My own experience is that when children choose their friends, the colour of their skin is irrelevant. Surely we must look to the future rather than the past.’

      When the BBC openly practices a policy of colour quotas and makes afirmative action employment decisions then how does Mr Humphys expect those hired to behave? Of course they will play their winning race card over and over again shouting it from the hill tops – or rather the BBC microphone. Our John seems to realise too late that we the audience won’t want to listen.

    More thoughts on statues and the BBC speaking for ‘us’.

    When is the right time to put up a statue? There is an argument that the ‘arc of history’ can’t be seen until some time has passed from the event that we are studying or celebrating but equally as time passes we no longer can fully appreciate the contemporary attitudes or feelings.

    I am reminded of those dire comedy history shows that stuff BBC Four. Sanjeev Bhaskar and some 20 year-old female deign to tell us how funny Arthur Askey and his like were. My feeling is that none of these commentators knew these people in the context of their times and in the case of Bhaskar probably not in the context of the audience of the time. (A youngster watching a comedian with two older generations of your own family will have a different experience depending on the life experience of those family members).

    Who are our musical heroes? Well back in the early 1960s the BBC discovered The Beatles. For the next 40 years the BBC spoke for ‘us’ and told us that they could do no wrong, that they invented ‘Rock and Roll’ etc. Anyone brought up in those days knew a different story, ‘Rock and Roll’ went back at least another decade and there was also the Tommy Robinsons of the day, (dare I say it even now?), whisper it quietly, The Rolling Stones.

    Back to the comedy. I remember when Monty Python was first broadcast, in particular a sketch where ‘young things’ were playing tennis, limbs were flying off in all directions and blood spurting out. I don’t think I saw half of it, with the tears pouring down my face, it was so funny. But it was the context that made it funny, it was so different to what else was on TV at the time. It was great comedy of the moment but there is no way that Bhaskar or his contemporaries would ever understand that.

    Back to statues. I presume that the people who put up the Colston statue 170 years late were doing so to commemorate his role as a benefactor and a Bristol MP and they thought that worth recording at the time, the positives. The mob of today, like the BBC, just deal in negatives.

      The entire Toady programme was extremely sympathetic to BLM and Hope not Hate, even feeding the interviewees biased and loaded questions to extract the desired response.

      – “Some will say (yes, that old trick): why should we give in to threats from the far right?”

      – “Are you arguing (so what you’re saying is!) that people should remember that there are also boxes around statues like… Nelson Mandela and that the violence may not come from the sources they’re assuming?”

      A long and convoluted way of putting words into the interviewee’s mouth to the effect that it’s them fascists on the far right what are the real threat, innit. Hope not Hate spokesman all too ready to agree.

      Of course the far left groups have a huge advantage just in their names: ‘BLM’, ‘Hope not Hate’ (who would disagree with them?) vs the ‘far-right extremists’ (ie Hitler).

    Zut alors… Qu’ils mangent de la brioche

    ‘The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will be the first Royal Family members to hold a major event during the coronavirus lockdown when they welcome the French president to the UK.’

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-53031021

    ‘Mr Macron will be exempt from a 14-day quarantine imposed on most people who travel to the UK, as a “representative of a foreign country on business”.’

    So that’s ok then.

    And yet after having queued on the pavement for goodness knows how long just to get into the Coop or Sainburys I’m then still treated like a leper.

    Toady just before the 0757 weather, the resident female muslim interviewed another female imam(?) muslim in connection with the intended antics of the Marxist organisation BLM in protests this weekend. The subject of statues cropped up and the resident muslim asked the female imam to identify what was offensive about the statue of Churchill. The reply was vacuous but essentially the muslim was simply “offended” and it was ‘appropriate’ that it should be in a museum.
    Well, madam, I am offended by you, your presence in the UK and your so-called ‘religion’ and I suggest that you and your ‘religion’ be relegated to a museum as that would be totally ‘appropriate’.

      Despite my admittedly general disinterest in islam I still glean the basic notion that muslims tend not to approve human representation at all – let alone statues that have an inescapable element of idol about them.

      I was going to observe this would be like asking a Jehovahs Witness what he wanted for his birthday or a Jew what he thought of a brand of pork sausage?

      Then I notice the BBC is asking an ‘imam’ (albeit a female one) – is there such a thing? Are most of the world’s followers of the teachings of muhamed cool with her? That would be news to me. Seems we have already lapsed far far into the twilight zone.

      I do recall Winston as evidenced in his early writings thought muslims among other attributes tended to be a bit fanatical and warlike. It’s an opinion. I guess that’s what the BBC were hinting at.

      R4’s ‘Toady’ was utterly predictable in the section I listened to (8:00-8:30).

      London BLM protests, boarding up of statues and the Mayor’s advice to stay away today; evocation of the threat of the “Far Right” (but no specifics on who/what they are); Trump unusually bowing to public pressure by cancelling election rally in Tulsa (where Whites killed lots of Blacks in 1921!); Brazil overtaking Britain to move into second place behind US in Covid19 death toll (so Boris, Bolsonaro and Trump are all bad!); some type of prison pepper spray to be used now only in extreme cases, after revelations that it’s used more on Blacks/BAMEs (but don’t ever ask WHY prison officers might need to do this!); BAME medical staff and lack of testing for Covid19 (suggestion that it’s discrimination within NHS); etc.

      Unrelenting agenda-pushing for about half an hour, then on to a discussion about Winston Churchill with his grand-daughter and a lady called Basu who wrote the Victoria and Abdul book.

      The Brazil figure is almost meaningless: if their population is around 150m, you would expect them to have more deaths than in the UK (70m) even if with a lower rate per million people, but fewer than the USA (320m).

      The Tulsa reference is classic framing: imagine if, when mentioning Manchester in the context of a coming party conference or football match, we were reminded by the BBC of the Ariana Grande Concert / Manchester Arena bombing (22 killed, 250 injured by a MUSLIM bomber in 2017) – hard, I know!

    There’s quite an amusing address given by London mayor, Runt Khan, to members of the BLM who intend another “peaceful protest” in the capital today.
    “Please don’t turn up to this event. The extreme, far right are going to be there. And we all know they just want to cause trouble and division…” Umm…

    It’s clear that all these lefties live in an alternative reality. The mayhem, destruction and violence from last week was “largely peaceful.”
    The vandalism to our sacred memorials was merely “exuberance”.
    And ripping out an old statue and throwing it in a harbour was “responding to the public’s wishes.” Whose public?

    Sadly it’s left to working class men, who will come from across the length and breadth of Britain to defend our heritage and our history. You won’t see us “bending the knee” to these anarchist scumbags.

    The police, the media, our own government have proven themselves totally useless. The response to these barbarian thugs has been pitiful.

    In the case of the repellent BBC, they are actually worse than useless. They’ve been stoking this from the beginning. They’ve been standing on the side lines cheering on the mob. Goading the not very bright BLM yobs. Tonight they’re showing a programme about the Windrush scandal”. Nice timing!

    Surely even the most blinkered must see the BBC for what it is. It’s not “Aunty”. It’s a dangerous and deceitful propagandist tool for ultra leftists.

    Even Mayor Khan could see that…

      Jeff – ‘working class men’ coming to ‘defend our heritage’? Surely, as any good Marxist-Leninist knows, those working class men are going to be good ‘socialists’, the backbone of the ‘Proletariat’ and therefore in present times, natural Labour party recruits? Paula Barker MP for one, would welcome them into the party, clenched fist raised and all, should you be in Liverpool.
      Of course some of them may go for the Socialist Worker’s Party , but then Lenin and Trotsky couldn’t agree on everything either.
      But, you say they’re coming to defend our heritage? Goodness how things have changed.
      Could be cos the Left are now mostly NOT of the ‘working class’, but rather people who avoid such things as labour and sweat.
      They are destroyers, not creators or producers of value.
      They are the Islington intellectual set, the uni professors, the students, the apparatchiks of the Nomenklatura, the wealthy FA bosses of the Premier league, their players, big capital (ironically; Marx would be baffled), the Media managers, the wealthy Hollywood set, — or so you would conclude from listening to beeb, et al.

    Why do ‘the left’ support ‘transgenderism’, not many votes there, damn all of nothing.

    I think I see why now and the clue is there with BLM and all this ‘taking a knee’.

    Its purpose is a rallying point and as a test. Take an issue that doesn’t directly affect people, then get them to ‘sign-up’ to prove their allegiance to the cause.

    Call for a ‘worker’ to rise up and strike and the worker might realise that they will be out of a job and starve. Call for a ‘worker’ or ‘student’ to ‘fight’ for ‘transgenderism’ or against ‘US police racism’ and it becomes, ‘so what, why not?’.

    Its like a test to join the Mafia. Shoot your village shopkeeper, well you grew up with his kids, maybe not. Shoot the village shopkeeper 20 miles away? ‘so what, why not?’.

    And then they have you and you will do anything to prove your loyalty because like Napleon’s dogs they will turn on you if you don’t.

      Jim,
      What’s the betting that irrespective of current time circumstances, Boris and his far left cohort, will make some sort of legislative move to appease the Marxists. That, doubtless will involve more controls or restrictions on the freedoms of the indigenous white population.
      The political system is rotten and does not reflect most of the population’s wishes.

      This taking the knee reminds me of an Uncle’s experience in WW2 in Burma , captured British Soldiers having to dig their own Grave before kneeling and …..
      It makes me so angry that these uneducated protesters are destroying Statues and our History , better not rant on otherwise the BBC thought police will be round for having Far Far Right thoughts !

        Charlie – yes, you do have to be careful of the ‘thought police’ (and who would ever have thought that would happen in Britain?) but the association between kneeling and ‘digging your own grave’ is no longer so far-fetched in this dystopian UK, and the hour is late. (If you won’t kneel, start digging?)
        I very much regret to say Burma is now another world, another universe. (Suits the bad, colonialist Britain narrative, if anything). But a universe that only some of us oldies won’t forget.
        As for the present, Burma is Myanmar and Aung San Suu Kyi, a beeb favourite and heroine, while she seemed to make all the right noises. Then, hey presto, she fell out of favour, in a manner reminiscent of all good Communist narratives. Wasn’t toeing the line, any more. Another part of the modern Burma story, which is ripe for Leftist propaganda, because of the ongoing…well, that’s another story, isn’t it?

    Statues have to go cos they are offensive, say Antifa.
    …. The same Antifa that brought their Baby Trump balloon onto the street DELIBERATELY to be OFFENSIVE to Trump, his entourage and Trump supporters.
    The BBC joined the game using a Trump blimp in the Victoria Derbyshire studio.

    Then when based Amy stuck a pin into the London street Trump blimp the police were quick to seize her.
    Later she served jail time for daring to interrupt Anna Soubry twice in public. A type of protest that an Antifa protester would get away with 100 times.

    9am local news : “Protesters in London must be off the street by 5pm
    and must stick to the agreed route
    cos of threats from FAR RIGHT groups”
    they then went into a clip from Sadiq where he says there is evidence that previous demos have spread Covid .. blah blah … “extreme right”.

    Srew – on R4 he was saying ‘protesters’ should stay home for their health, but also because of the threat from the ‘extreme Right’, and the “threat of violence, vandalism and disorder”. A carefully-chosen , cleverly rattled off sequence, giving us a Stalinist big lie. Trotsky couldn’t have twisted it all round any better.
    All this was clearly said in a sequence and tone of voice that left you in no doubt as to who would be causing the violence, vandalism and disorder.
    Khant and beeb: two toxic chemicals which – when mixed- produce an even more toxic mixture.

    One aspect of the BLM protests shows how the organisation and presentation is orchestrated worldwide. From the US to Europe and Australia, the signs are the same – amateurish.
    Previous such demos have been well sprinkled with large printed, professional-looking slogans but BLM is almost exclusively felt-tip on cardboard – a contrived way of showing working-class spontaneity? Or hand-made has more sincerity?
    Whatever, its another con, but how many will see it as such?
