      SG,
      If a child asked me what the expression: “tail wagging the dog” meant and to give an example, I would refer to Government statistics. I would reply that in some circumstances a gobby few people sometimes dictate what happens to the large majority of the people because they shout louder and/or naturally act like criminals. I would go on to say, for example, blacks constitute about 3.3% of the population but they expect to dictate how everyone lives their lives.

      And, btw, mixed race couples (black/white) aka, ‘DFS advertising people’ are in total only 1.1% of the population. So, BBC work as hard on lies and deception as much as you like, the public are not deceived.

      As we have to assume that most of the British public are stupid, then quoting to them that 87% is white and the rest is BAME, might not equate much except its a little number against a big number, so if we said that we have 66,000,000 people in this country and only 8,580,00 are none white, then that disparity might register a bit more.

      So, even easier if we say that 8 and a half million are trying to tell 58 million what to do ! That should fire’em up !

    Radio 4 have reported that they will be broadcasting statements by His Excellency, President Lammy, on the hour- every hour. As his semi-official PR team, they can also be contacted if you need the little Book of Thoughts, by President Lammy. 20% of each purchase will go towards the funding of the bbc entertainment and travel bill. The Book of His Excellency’s Demands can be purchased separately. 20% of each purchase will go towards the funding of a collection of Rolex and diamond accoutrement for a Mr Rajan, of London.
    R4 weather say they will let us know the time of Sunrise tomorrow, as soon as His Excellency reveals it. It is thought that this is the same light that struck a Mr Johnson, of London, earlier today.
    Mr Johnson will be setting up a Commission as a result. Its report will- of course- have to be vetted by Prime Minister Surkeer, before publication. All it will take then is the nod from a Mr Burr Cow, also of London, before the peasants get to see it.
    Mr Cow said today that it was not known yet which palace His Excellency would chose to live in. Some say that a Ms Krankie, of Edinburgh, has offered him Crathers Castle as his summer residence.
    Once President Lammy reveals what the Commission Report should contain, said Mr Johnson will let us know.
    Via R4, of course.

      I clean forgot to say, Mr Cow is very upset because he didn’t make it to the Louse of Hordes. Some say His Excellency and PM Surkeer are working on it. If you know what ermine.
      Personally, I think we should pass the hat around. Mr Cow has a competition on with Mr Rajan to see who can build up the biggest collection of silk ties. I feel Mr Cow’s feelings are hurt, so he should win. Wink, wink.
      R4 will keep us updated as to the result of this competition. As soon as The President’s daily, on the hour statement has been made, for that particular day, of course.
      20% of all donations to the hat will go the updating of the bbc’s recruitment policy, to accomodate the latest demands by His Excellency. (These can be viewed in his little Book of Demands).
      Not that that is really necessary.

          But not by His Excellency. No, some lady play write wrote this; maybe exclusively for R4? One doesn’t really know what goes on at such dizzying heights, all the collusion and timing and whatnot…
          Someone once sang in 1967 that they had ‘read the news today, oh boy’. Nobody was really sure if he was from the Louse of Hordes. But that was long ago, when ‘news’ were still published/broadcast. Cos then came 1968, and we all know what that means.
          That’s not toady. Toady is all about having a proper gander.

    Im waiting for the briefing. The BBC droid is following the BBC editorial line of wanting the country locked up for ever .

    Then theyve gone to talk about the Brookes case in the USA – if you see the 2 minute video youll see he bought it on himself . But minor issues like facts are not agenda items these days .

    Just for record – it was drunk driving . He resisted arrest – tried to get the tazer and got shot . In america – but the BBC seems to think it broadcasts on behalf of all blacks everywhere in order to fuel disorder in the UK – which i dont think it likes .

      If Mr Banks had done the same but been on a different mission there’d currently be a media outcry about the lack of public conveniences.

    How many times have you heard or read about serial criminals being charged and having 50 or more cases taken into consideration or some criminal having committed 70-80 or more offences and them being given a non custodial sentence even though their offences were serious such as mugging and burglary.

    Yet, here we have a lad who got pissed and had to relieve himself (whilst possibly blocked in by the police) near a plaque on the bottom of a wall as no toilets were there.
    Amazingly, within hours of handing himself in he was tried, sentenced and jailed for 2 weeks.

    The soviets would have been proud of such a show trial type of ‘justice’
    True Brits must be ashamed that some far left biased judge was over promoted and able to virtue signal with a sentence 1000 times too harsh.
    Unless, of course, if those who defaced our Cenotaph or Winston get 10 years but this will never happen (unless they can pin it on the extreme far right nazi football hooligan thugs and then it’s a given)

    Has the BBC done a deal with Iran for the release of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe?

    Three years ago Tony Hall contacted Iran for permission to produce a programme about historic Persia…..Samira Ahmed, who fronts it, explained on R4 today what the programme was about and it seemed to be a bit of positive spin to try and change your image and perceptions of ‘Iran’ and sell us a new narrative…..

    Art of Persia

    ‘Since Ayatollah Khomeini brought revolution to Iran in 1979, the country has become a byword for radical Islam. Western documentary teams are seldom given access, but broadcaster and journalist Samira Ahmed has been given a rare opportunity to discover Iran’s rich, colourful culture and extraordinary history.

    In this first episode, Samira journeys to places rarely seen by western audiences to reveal how the Persian Empire was born, the mysterious writing of its early people and how Iran’s powerful kings built a vast empire that became the envy of the ancient world.’

    Sky reported a couple of weeks ago that her release might be imminent…

    Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe: British-Iranian woman could be granted clemency soon, says husband

    ‘Her husband, Richard Ratcliffe, told Sky News he was “hopeful” she was among 3,000 prisoners Iran’s supreme leader has announced will be granted clemency.

    “It feels like we’re quite close,” he said.

    “It feels like things could still go wrong. We’ve had a number of times where we’ve been down to the prosecutor’s office and been told to come back in a week’s time so that might be happening again.” ‘

    Considering the BBC Persia has been banned from Iran for years and many of its Iranian journalists imprisoned or refused entry to the country, not just Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, this is quite a breakthrough although a basic news service had been agreed before…

    ‘BBC Accepts Iran’s Demand Of Blackout On Its Persian Sites Amid Regime’s Attacks On Press’

    ‘The morale of BBC Persian journalists has been “deeply affected” by a management decision to abide by reporting restrictions in exchange for access to Iran, the National Union of Journalists has claimed.

    The BBC agreed a deal with Iranian authorities preventing BBC Persian from using material gathered in the Islamic nation in exchange for access for Middle East correspondent Martin Patience.’

    So what deal did Hall do to get Samira Ahmed in to do a series of promotional programmes about Iran?

    And if Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe isn’t released?

    The BBC campaigning and not investigating?

    The 5G con that could make you sick

    ‘Since the UK went into coronavirus lockdown something strange has been happening –attacks on telephone masts and telecom workers are being reported all across the country. That’s because some people think that 5G can make you sick –from corona virus to cancer and a whole host of other symptoms. Even more worryingly, some scientists say they can prove that it’s harmful. But at a time when many businesses are struggling, could this apparent threat be helping to fuel a whole industry of strange and expensive products? And worse, could stoking these fears actually be damaging people’s health?
    File on 4 investigates how bad science could be making you sick.’

    So…the BBC is absolutely convinced 5G is totally safe, so much so that if you ask any questions at all you are some sort of conspiracy theorist, freak or criminals stoking fears and putting lives at risk…or is that 5G putting lives at risk?

    Never mind that the EU admits it hasn’t done any testing on the safety of 5G, that hundreds of scientists and doctors have written to the EU to press for studies on 5G and that many reputable organisations have raised questions about its safety.

    But the BBC doesn’t want to know.

    Maybe this is a debt repaid to Ofcom…which regulates what you can say on TV…and curiously is also very insistent that nobody criticises 5G….or not so curious you might say as Ofcom is the body charged with developing and promoting 5G in Britain…lol. Conflict of interest anyone?

    Ofcom packed with BBC types will no doubt be scratching the BBC’s back in any future issues such as a government demanding the BBC stop being biased….all such complaints will be quietly filed away never to be heard about again.

    The BBC today getting very excited about the statement from BP re reducing oil production and aiming for carbon neutrality. Much virtual clapping going on!

    A few “facts” for them to check.

    The US leads the World in oil production with around 15 million barrels a day.

    Next comes Saudi Arabia with around 12 million barrels a day

    Followed by Russia with around 11 million barrels a day

    Iraq, Iran and China are the next 3 with around 3 – 4 million barrels each..

    The UK comes in at 21st with under 1 million barrels a day.

    So what can we predict from this?

    Russia and Saudi Arabia will concentrate hard on selling their oil to China and the developing industrial nations who are not that concerned about Climate crap etc.. (The USA may follow).

    They will in turn continue to expand their already rapid production rate of goods to sell Worldwide.

    In the UK energy prices will rocket (as well as all goods requiring energy to produce them). This will price their goods out of the Global market as well as placing enormous strain on Joe Public via his hugely increasing transport and heating costs.

    Combine this with what I fully expect to be up to 4 million UK job losses through the CV fiasco which will almost certainly result in far higher Income Tax, VAT etc. and the UK will be staring at the thick-end of the biggest slump it has experienced for a hundred years.

    There will also be a scarcity of jobs for all the ‘hopefuls’ leaving universities when they finally realise that they need jobs from the people that hate so much.

    British industry and innovation will be scooped up by Foreign Investors at knock-down prices and profits will go overseas.

    On the up-side, the smiling “Green Chappie” they dragged on to applaud the move will sleep happily at night in his Yurt somewhere.

    The only thing i can think of with the BBC is that they all live in a world -a ‘culture ‘ where there is an unwritten expectation all the way up the chain .
    It is insular . They are all both anxious about their position and ambitious for the next one .

    The result is that it has become a social justice campaign organisation for the things it chooses to go for . There is no input from the ordinary public – just left wing pressure groups

    The thing which really gets me is the lack of whistle blowers who come out of the BBC to tell us how it is .

    As an aside – someone somewhere was referring to the captain who raised a load of cash – and wondered why no one went back and asked him about the churchill statue ….

    Quite how the loud voices demanding mandatory 10-year jail sentences for desecration of memorials are going to face reality might be a question for their psychiatrists as they impose all the best bits of schizophrenia on their limited mental faculties.
    They want, of course, to punish ‘right-wing beer swilling louts’ but sadly, although confronted by police in full riot gear, the ‘louts’ made no attempts to tear down the barriers erected by mayor Khan to steal their thunder.
    We all know that all the vandalism was three days earlier, from BLM and Antifa thugs, but as per usual those ‘in power’ lack the moral fibre to say so. The way in which the public are increasingly treated as dim and thoughtless worms, brainwashed into subservience, may well come back to bite because, as they say, even the worm will turn, one day.

    Telegraph editorial…

    ‘The campaigners pressing for the eradication of our past are a minority not supported by most of the country. They seek a Maoist disavowal of British history or, as Mr Johnson puts it, they want to “photoshop the entire cultural landscape”.

    They certainly need to be resisted – but by way of debate and argument, not thuggish violence.’

    Trouble is they are a minority with a powerful and dominant broadcast organisation backing them to the hilt…it is no good engaging in debate and argument if the ‘enemy’ controls the limits of that debate and can declare what is and is not true or what is immoral or what is or is not offensive.

    The problem isn’t so much the violent and extreme groups exploiting George Floyd’s death but the BBC.

    Tackle the BBC and much of this will be pushed to the sidelines, back into the shadows where it belongs.

    Does Boris have the balls to do it? I suspect not…in fact I’m absolutely sure he will do nothing to rein in the BBC….which leaves the door open to other people to take matters into their own hands.
    I spoke to a thoroughly respectable businessman, salt of the earth, solid citizen and taxpayer today and he’s fuming at the BBC’s coverage….he looks on and sees what we all can see…Muslims bomb us and murder us and suddenly they become a protected species, untouchable and favoured, similarly we see Blacks launch attacks on us and our society and what happens? Politicians fall at their feet, literally, along with police officers and the commentariat all egged on by a corrupt and dangerous media which seeks to demonise and belittle white people, their culture, history and society.

    You can work out what his conclusion was…it wasn’t debate and argument.

    The BBC is stirring up a hornet’s nest and spreading hate and division.

    Someone needs to get a grip of it and end its baleful rule over us.

    Quote from Trevor Phillips’ latest article in The Times:

    “Most of the mainstream media no longer even pretends to be even-handed. The BBC apparently believes that Rowling’s view that biological sex exists is “controversial”; it is, but only in the sense that a noisy minority “controversially” believes we are ruled by lizard aliens. Astonishingly, this weekend the BBC allowed, without challenge, a Black Lives Matter (BLM) representative to equate Adolf Hitler with Winston Churchill — the very man who brought thousands of West Indians to volunteer to fight and die in the battle against fascism. It really isn’t an accident that so many of us in the Caribbean are called Winston.”

    One problem in the Twitter age, is that short attention spans and a massive information overload, combine to ensure that little serious research into issues is done. There is no time, and little inclination.
    This gives the MSM and the beeb, in particular, a HUGE advantage.
    They are there to entertain you, and (pretend) to inform you. They have scores of channels already. If you want to find out what really goes on, you need to take time and make an effort. Really, I’ve only had the time since retirement; I’d have to go back to my uni days in the dark ages, to find a parallel.
    It is very easy for them to dominate.
    Think, how LITTLE it takes: an obscure photo of urination and a quick click to link it to ‘far right’, and you’re done. You get paid. And a pat on the back. Why spend time and effort on research to check the facts, if that will DISPLEASE THE BOSS anyway? And he needs paying,too. And his boss.
    You have the photo and the label: a narrow path to follow up. You know the narrative.
    And ‘some’ get paid very, very well. Why upset the apple cart?
    Take the EASY route, is the motto. Other media are telling the same story. You must be right?
    This alone, is a BIG hurdle to overcome. Yet, on here, we try.
    And try.

        -they made the effort, given their resources, to bring new stuff, carefully researched;
        -and this new stuff did not conform to all their narratives.
        As things stand,what you’re going to see, especially the ‘take’/angle, and hear is 95% predictable.
        Imagine this, for instance: Evan Davis tells us, the ‘BLM’ slogan replacing names on footballers shirts is a BAD idea, and he thinks it’s PC propaganda. Unimaginable. He picked up the ball from Mair, and ran in exactly the same direction, same dribble and all.

    The Twitter Age…Take one example, of my above opinion piece: BBC hero and general saint, the late Mr Mandela.
    In 1994 he was impressive: a conciliator and statesman, released from many years in jail to fight an oppressive system. An easy tale to understand, absorb and identify with. Now here’s the thing: much of this is correct. You’d have to wade through a lot of stuff to find a dark side.
    If you want to find it, the computer/internet age is great; if you have the time and inclination.
    I’ve only had the time for ten years, and that hasn’t been a lot.
    Tales of ANC corruption and incompetence were there. Many whites killed. Many blacks dancing about freely, singing ‘Kill the boer’, kill the farmer. Many of them ANC. Mr Mandela’s ANC? The one beeb interrupted all their programmes for, when he passed? The saint? So, what was going on?
    Ten years later, I’m still only scratching the surface of the ANC terror tale, pre-1994, spurred on by the current MSM narrative of good blacks and bad whites. (Should be said: there were whites in the ANC, generally committed Communists.) Post 1994 is quite easy, e.g. bomb going off in the Pretoria city centre.
    You keep coming up with new names, books, videos, for pre-1994, all the time.
    What is striking, is that the victims are almost always black, as are the perpetrators.
    Now, the bbc will be happy now and then, to talk about Hutus and Tutsis, even the Congo. But you’re going to have to dig deep, to uncover the Angolan stuff. Angola? Is that in Africa?
    I’m currently trying to find out about ANC complicity in the Angolan massacre of 27 May 1977, in articles written by SA Communist insider, Paul Trwhela. 25 000 victims. Mugabe got away with slightly more in Matabeleland. Is that in Africa?
    The SA Communist Party is a long-standing ally of the ANC. I’ve been researching what went on in other ANC camps, this is a recent discovery.
    And will have to be checked and double-checked. Time. Do I really want to do this? Does anybody care?
    The mere fact that beeb are a million light years from doing it, is a big incentive.
    For them, a single photograph of a urinator, and a a glib two word phrase to link to, does the trick. Confirms the drum beat of good and bad.
    Why try to contradict their easily financed narrative? My kids used to watch the X-files, and I’m thinking: is the Truth really out there? Beeb won’t tell us.
    And if it is, who will live long enough to tell the tale?

      Takeover of the bbc agendas, along with ‘decolonisation’, will be the big push. We’re going to hear a lot more from the Afua Hirshs and David Lammys of this world.
      Unless we form a significant counter by the silent majority, these people will have it all their own way. We need to organise, thy’re way ahead of us on that.

    HYPOCRISY STORM The Guardian facing calls to ‘shut down’ over founder’s use of slaves and siding against Lincoln in US Civil War

    THE GUARDIAN is facing calls to “shut down” for hypocrisy after backing BLM protests when it branded Abraham Lincoln “abhorrent” in the US Civil War.

    Originally called the Manchester Guardian, the paper was founded in 1821 by John Edward Taylor using profits from a cotton plantation that used slaves.

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/11864739/lincoln-guardian-shut-down/

    After his death in 1844, the paper is said to have then demanded Manchester’s cotton workers be forced back into work.

    Now with a growing backlash against statues linked to slavery and racism, hundreds have signed a petition taking aim at the Guardian’s history.

    This petition to shut the paper down has been organised by novelist Tony Parsons, who tweeted: “Shameful links to slave-owning Confederate south. Built on the profits of cotton fields. Shut down The Guardian Newspaper.”
