    In the News at One, the BBC said President Trump will be presenting his plan for police in the Rose garden later. It then when on to do a report about Camden New Jersey which was supposed to have defunded it’s police

      I thought the best suggestion as to how to deal with the Seattle breakaway state was to recognise it as a separate country and surround it with razor wire and refuse to allow anyone out as it was now hostile territory. You can go in but never come out.
      That should concentrate minds in the kiddies. No food. .Then the UN would want to send in relief. They want to live like the third world and they despise the US then let them.

        Yes yes. Remember the history of socialism is full of stories about Utopian socialist societies being created and heading towards perfection until ….wicked capitalists moved in and invaded them. Let this be an opportunity to see what a mess they can make when left alone.
        I would advocate donating food, etc, so that the world could see how their leaders expropriate it.

    Technical note : Is this forum difficult to read ?
    The indexing computer thinks it is.
    I played around trying to spot Hot Topics by putting the page into an indexing tool
    It couldn’t do it. It’s mostly quite difficult to spot the topic people are talking about from their first sentence.
    People do use the term Today-watch and that is quite easy to spot
    but otherwise people use a lot of slang. The computer couldn’t tell that when people said “the bronzed one” they meant Emily Maitlis etc.

      What is an ‘indexing computer’ when it is at home?

      I quite like the idea that ‘we’ know what a ‘bronzed strumpet’ is and the researchers at Cardiff University Non-biased Television Studies department and Google don’t!

      First they index you, then they block you.

      (It’s especially nice when one knows where the term ‘bronzed strumpet, came from – an organisation known by three letters, two of which are the same.)

      Stew – I don’t think it’s difficult to read – sometimes I don’t ‘fully engage ‘ with the sheer volume of comments but I do read them all … it would be ideal if it was listed by the most recent first but we’ve got what we’ve got and should appreciate because the way freedom of expression is being bleached away who know when it will be removed ….?

      It’s good to see more people joining and I hope that is because of the undisguised bias the BBC is now proudly ( and arrogantly ) exhibiting …..

      Last – I really wish there were to be more contrary views – but to be able to evidence a balanced or even fair output by the BBC would be a real challenge ……

    Now that Marcus Rashford has cornered the children virtue signalling spot is there any more of the fabulously rich footballers looking for their own virtue signalling hobby.

    How about pensioners.
    We live for a year on what a Premier league player like Rashford gets in less than a week.

    Most of the popular virtue signalling causes have been claimed but there are still some left. Instead of jumping on the African bandwagon or the usual children one in the UK how about using pensioners to get your name in the papers and get lots of likes on Facebook.
    We pensioners would also like free stuff as everybody else seems to be getting it.

    If you don’t want to do anything for pensioners just remember that there are also black pensioners and that makes you a racist.

    Free stuff for pensioners. FSFP. Not as catchy as your blm or starving kids I grant you.

      Excellent idea , Mrs Farley is waiting for her pension due when she is 67 , and like a lot of the girls in her age group thought it was going to be 60 , now there’s a cause for the over paid and privileged footballers to put money into , yes free stuff for me as well and that includes TV licence even though I cancelled mine , FSFP
      Do we have to be the correct colour for free stuff ?

    Thinking about the BBC getting behind the free kids food plan, maybe the idea has legs!

    How about free TV licenses with refunds for everyone on furlough, every pensioner or everyone without a job or even everyone who wants one!

    Surely that would show the BBC to be the campaigning public-spirited outfit that it claims to be?

    In suggesting this I have to confess that I am not a premier league footballer so I don’t actually think it’s going to fly!

    I hear a rumour that DFID’s going to be ‘scrapped’. Apparently Blair and Brown aren’t happy.
    Guess beeb aren’t going to be happy then either? The Department will be under Dominic Raab’s FCO .
    Wonder whether the word ‘scrapped’ really means that, or if it’s sort of like ‘intercepted’?
    And then the question arises: will Rashford allow it?

      The Guardian, if they deign to respond will probably use the “That was then, this is now excuse”

        Another comment I made yesterday concerned a BBC type who was tagged as a “BBC Misinformation Reporter”.

        I suggest that the Guardian ask if they could borrow her to scribble a new version of their past to replace the dodgy one, then get BBC to commission a “reconstruction drama” which showed the Guardian roots founded in say, unemployed Welsh miners or something. The lead character could be a lesbian coal-cutter maybe?

    Over at IsThe BBC Biased Sue thinks that we live in an age of polarised politics.

    Personally I think we live in an age of uni-polar politics. It is like watching a flock of birds, none of them wants to get picked off by the sparrow hawks on the ‘right-wing” so they all shift to the left, hoping that some other sucker gets left on the flank.

    Remember when ‘PC’ first started? People in jest said, “you can’t say that!” and the smug elite in the BBC said, “where does it say that? It is just people being polite!”.

    And then Harriet Harman came along with her ‘protected characteristics’ and then the police with their ‘check your thinking’ and registers of ‘no-crimes’.

    And now we have the mob with their ‘kinder politics’ who will hound you out of your job if you just say nothing at all.

    Where is this other pole of politics, buried in extreme far-right groups like Truro W.I. or Penzance Baptists?

    Lectures from Jo Coxes sister shoved in my face twice today as both TalkRadio and now local ITV news run an item like an advert.
    She used the monstering term “Far right” about 15 times
    and they stated it’s a pity their is so much division in society.
    FFS it’s guys like you and Jo that systematically dismiss people’s concerns by applying that boo-word label far-right.
    The presenter made a big point of introducing the item as “Jo was killed by the *far-right fanatic* Thomas Mair”.
    I can’t read Mair’s mind but I saw little evidence he was a true fanatic , they never said he was doing something like going on demos every weekend or on Nazi forums every day, nothing like that, just that he had some Nazi books on his shelf.

    As I said before I see little difference between the way genuine 50’s racists demonised all black people with N-word
    .. and the way that libmob players now demonise
    working class white people that have counter views to theirs with the power label far-right.

    Here’s a tip.

    I use an iPad for this forum and when I close it up after a session I clear it by double pressing the home button and flicking the various sites off the screen.

    When I open it again and go to our site there are sometimes 5 or so pages you have to go through (newer comments, top right) before you get past the ones you’ve already read.

    If you don’t flick the bbbc off when closing down you should double click the home button when you open the iPad again and it takes you to where you last were instead of doing it page by page.

    This might work on the iPhone as well.

    Just a little thing but it may help a couple of you.
    You can still close down all the other sites but just leave this one open.
    Maybe you all do this anyway and I’m the only one who didn’t realise I could do this.

    As time goes by my understanding of how the BBC works gets clearer…

    At heart they are a pseudo-political organisation that would dearly like to see autonomous control of the Country and it’s population by hand-picked committees of hard-left commissars.

    However they cannot be seen to come across as the left-wing, entitled intellectuals they really are (Yet!) so they have fabricated a deliberate artificial veneer to put the right BBC “tone” over to Joe Public.

    This has, amongst many other tactics, involved elevating people they would normally not be associated with like very rich professional footballers and show-biz wannabes to “front’ or represent their organisations message to the masses. This is no more than a propaganda exercise so that the “working proles” will associate themselves with say Lineker or Beyonce and thus artificially give the BBC the right aroma.

    Eventually, because these elevated “slebs” feel the power, plaudits and thus authority that is artificially placed on them by the BBC they adopt the mantle of their benefactor.

      Good point, Digg. This was my impression of both TWATO and PM on R4 today: basically getting someone (e.g. single mother of four, no questions asked) to say what the BBC / Labour believes but with a veneer of it being “ordinary folk” speaking. That is, they write the script first, then look for anyone who’s prepared to echo it.

    You have to hand it to Sacha Baron Cohen, he’s only gone and done it again. His new funny persona is hilarious. What an amazing bit of contemporary social observation.

    You have to laugh. Fancy thinking up the idea of a lanky black Manchester United mega-rich footballer campaigning for summer holiday freebie school dinner tickets. When the country is broke! Nutty, isn’t it? I wonder whether he has a team of writers or if it’s all his own creation?

    And all the otherwise sensible and important people are taken in by him. So funny. I can’t get over it. They actually take him seriously. It’s such a mad idea but so funny and ironic at the same time – if you get what I mean?

      That reminds me of when my daughter was in primary school and keen on the Horrible Science books. The one about germs had a section about toilets. It said that putting the lid down before flushing doesn’t prevent the cloud of ‘germs’. Instead, they are forced down through the gap all around the toilet. Anyway, that meant that my daughter was afraid of flushing the toilet. If she did, she left the lid up and rushed out of the room as fast as possible.

    Plymouth online newspaper : threatened police action and vowed to publicly shame *racist readers* amid a crackdown by regional press editors on online comments.

    Plymouth Live editor Edd Moore has warned he will act against people making “racist remarks” online after taking the unprecedented step of removing the comments function from several stories related to the Black Lives Matters protests.

    https://www.holdthefrontpage.co.uk/2020/news/editor-threatens-police-action-and-public-shaming-of-racist-readers/

    In similar news Hull local radio mentioned a 17 year old boy has been arrested over one racist Facebook comment.
    That’s a bit strange cos the local paper covered that back on June 12th
    That paper report has the common strangeness cos it avoids alluding to what was actually, said.
    They don’t make it clear it was one instance of 2 quick comments.
    The father said “Bring back slavery, show blacks +Cword who’s boss ”
    Son replies “all need lynching mucky +Cword”
    OK both hatey comments, rather than a real call to terrorism.
    The thing is that there are so many hatey hatey comments on social media against Tories, Trump, Boris daily
    And if you saw similar comments with them as the butt, the police would laugh at you if you tried to report it.
    For God’s sake you get comedians on TV carrying Trump or Boris’s severed head . Such hatey comments should be discouraged, but laws should be applied evenly.

    Not BBC – listening to LBC in background – but probably getting similar treatment

    Marcus Rashford, millionaire footballer, forces government U turn on free school meals.

    What did he do? Threaten to resign his £11 million p.a. ‘job’?

    The way people are talking about this you’d think we were back in the time of Dickens. When I was a kid even poor parents seemed to feed their children well enough and would have been ashamed to admit to needing help.

    The Conservative MP Robert Halfon and others have also been pushing for this but the footballer opens his mouth and the PM folds.

    Another funny thing that someone just pointed out to me is Fiona Onasanya (ex MP for Peterborough who served time for lying about speeding) is making a fuss about the monkey on the Kellogs coco pops packet. She says the monkey on the packet is racist because the non brown ordinary coco pops have ‘white boys’ on the packet. (I think they’re elves actually).

    I wonder what ex-con Fiona is doing now?

    Anyway, I will never buy Kellogs because it’s Halal certified.

        Forgive me – but how can coco pops be ‘halal’ ?

          Companies have to pay some islamic organisation (don’t have details handy sorry) for halal certification. The money is used for furthering the cause of islam, you know; mosques, bombs, whatever.

          Anyway, I understand that there is a white chocolate version of coco pops which also has the monkey on the packet.

            Thank you Desp – I guess the criminal exMP lady self identifies as a monkey – which seems more a personal issue for her than it does anything else –

            A whole entertainment industry is based on anthropomorphism….

    Stew – a newspaper reporting readers to the police because of comments …. sounds very Germany 1934 ….. l know local press is always bitching about being hard to keep going so this kind of thing won’t encourage engagement .

    What has been happening with assaults on public symbols was bound to cause extreme anger – I’m surprised there hasn’t been more even more extreme response – will could still easily happen …..

    I’m thinking of putting up the midweek thread – I was pondering what comes after the Chinese virus – war ? It seems like India and China are kicking off and there have been deaths today – military ones ….2020 is turning into a real humdinger …

      9:10pm BBC4 ostensibly about history of docks
      9:10pm and we are talking about “multiracial Tiger Bay, Cardiff”
      a few minutes of archive about a white lady who met her husband Ali there when she got lost
      “We were married at 16 and 3 months, and I’ve had 10 children”
      that Tiger Bay item got a full 10 minutes on the history of black workers.
      9:22pm now moved to talk about the workers registration scheme.

    Bame deaths of China virus is connected to waayscism, says a leaked report.
    And there is waycism in the Anychess.
    The report recommends
    ‘ Continuing work to tackle racism and discrimination within the health service with a clear commitment to increase diversity in leadership at all levels.’

    —————————–
    What, racism in the anychess, our national pride and religion which has posters praising it throughout the land.
    Not to mention the racist origins of the Guardian, propped up with BBC subscriptions.

      G.W.F., it’s not a leaked report. I think I have a downloaded copy. There was a link in the original BBC article about the report that provided access to the PHE Report. This article has been re-hashed and re-dated by the BBC at least once. The original anonymously authored article was dated 2 June 2020.

    BBC News

    Why does this keep happening?

    Young black men are twice as likely to die at the hands of police than white men.

    Will George Floyd’s death be a catalyst for change?

    From slave patrols to enabling lynchings, we look at the history of police violence in black America. #CutThroughTheNoise

    Usually these posts go according to BBC plan.

    Surprisingly, not even.
