Start the Week Thread 22 June 2020

The failing biased BBC continues to lose licence fees as more people realise that it is now an organisation without ‘diversity of opinion ‘ or even thought – just Far Left propaganda aimed at dividing the country . A long struggle to kill it .

    Since the bbc is so obsessed with diversity and thinks it acceptable for a black main Dickens character for example, is it not time for a white ginger Michael Jackson biopic ?,

    I am considering starting a campaign for Ray Winstone to play Ghandi maybe

    And if he was still around, George “Minder” Cole to play Nelson Mandela with ANC meetings down the Winchester

    (Er indoors ‘as just necklaced another 14 year old kid, gor blimey)

    Cannon and Ball for Martin Luther King and Malcolm X is a dream ticket in my opinion

    (had the Chuckle Brothers lined up until their tragic demise, one highlight being trying to assemble the stage together for the “I have a dream” speech was in the screenplay, its a scream believe me, “to me..to you”)

    No reply from the bbc suggestion box so far,

    probably gone straight to the top for a casting decision as we speak

      ED – that last point is instinctive for the bbc. A real tragedy for a national public broadcaster.
      On R4, they always think one mildly conservative voice in a group of 4 represents ‘balance’. A classic tactic, stretching across most R4 programmes.
      That 4th person is often harassed into conforming, if they are not very strong.
      This spending is spending on their IDEOLOGY, as opposed to improving programmes, and therefore totally unacceptable. BESIDES being totally UNNECESSARY!
      TV licence payment for that? NO WAYS.

      The BBC said they are aiming for 20% of TV to be about minority

      and maybe 17% in some ages.

    Well, this has fallen straight into the lap of the first lady, aka June Sarpong – BBC’s first Director of Creative Diversity. But listening to this nodding (was going to say dog, but thought better of it) person on the Pledge, then I can only imagine she is fronting the position for her mate Afua who will be the one really pulling the strings. Because June is a wet dish rag with the debating ability of a 14 year old compared to the pitbull Hirsch.

    The authorities and of course the BBC were very quick to deny any link between the BLM demo in Reading and the murders shortly thereafter.

    Imagine there’d been a ‘far-right’ demo followed by the murder of several people of BAME origin.

    They’d have been all over it to show a connection. In this case, some BLM spokesperson says “no link” and that’s it – ‘good enough for us, no need to look further’.

    I wonder if any footage will emerge of our suspect at the demo. If so, you can be sure it’ll disappear quick as a flash.

    What the BBC really thinks about terrorist murders…as if we didn’t know already….I’m guessing if it had been a ‘Far-Right’ killer Vine wouldn’t be so upset at the prominence the murders in Reading have achieved….

    And just how did they ‘die in Reading’ Jeremy? Savagely murdered or in some unfortunate car accident in the park?

    BBC already trying to blame MI5…heard one BBC numpty say ‘MI5 clearly made their decision not to continue tracking the guy and we can’t question that decision…but we will have to question the decision.’

    No matter how many time someone says that the security services have something like 40,000 people on their books and limited resources a BBC presenter will still want to know just how is it that they failed to stop such an attack?

    And apparently this is all due to our involvement in Libya…a bit of Libyan blowback because we so upset them…er…except this guy was fighting against Gaddafi and claimed asylum here on the basis of that….so just why would he in any respect be unhappy…unless, say, he had some other ideology that so inspired him to murder people in the name of that ideology?

      Perhaps Vine would care to explain why the BBC made such a fuss about the death of a drugged-up career criminal in a city that lies over 4000 miles away from the UK yet treats with such disdain the killing of three innocent men in a park in an English city by a man who should not have been at liberty in this country.

      Vine would do well to remember that the platform given to him to voice his ridiculous opinions is provided at public expense. And what the public purse gives, the public purse can – and should – remove.

      Is Vine really saying that the murder of 3 innocent people by an islamic maniac doesn’t deserve higher ranking than a road accident?

      By that measure, the death of some petty criminal in far-away Minnesota deserves a single line at the bottom of the page, if that, and to be immediately forgotten.

      The breathtaking asininity of Vine’s tweet speaks volumes about the beeboid mind (I use the word mind loosely).

      Interesting to see the first few comments cbgb:

      (The people are getting red-pilled BBC, wake up and smell the coffee.)

      – Right, whereas the death of a career criminal high on Fentanyl in the US was reported on in this country for no good reason. Yet the BBC thought it was important.

      – They are scum

      – Murder with links to terrorism vs a tragic accident?

      – One is a horrific, deliberate (unpeaceful) murder and the other is a terrible accident

      – That may explain the precedence in the list?

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #2 – Obvious BBC Anti-British Bias

    On the BBC’s web-site page where you can check Covid stats for your area – https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51768274 – there is a bit of discussion about R numbers. The R number is the number per 100/per 1000 who might catch Covid-19 from 1 infected person. If the R number is less than 1 it is good, if it is higher not so good, if it goes beyond 2 then it is much more serious for obvious multiplication reasons.

    In the UK I don’t think it has ever been above 1 (but I could be wrong on that) and the page I link to shows a normal UK range of 0.7 to 0.9. I was aware that the R number for Germany (the BBC’s prefered GOLD STANDARD for dealing with the Pandemic and Covid-19) had recently nudged up toward that critical 2.0 and was as close as 1.8 at the end of last week. At no point on the page, does the BBC mention Germany’s rate. At all.

    I wonder why?

    The BBC were very happy to continually make reference to Germany until now. They applauded their testing. They applauded their treatment of patients. They applauded Germany’s restrictions on the public. So no comment about the German R rate is very puzzling.

    I see today that that the R rate in Germany has shot up to not just 2.0 but nearly 3.0 at 2.88. That is very close to the figure, 3.0, that Prof Niall Ferguson so feared and urged the PM and Cabinet to avoid.

    I wonder why the BBC have not mentioned it on their web-site, even in the Europe section? Is it because they can no longer Bash Boris with Better Germany?

    • StewGreen says:

      You misunderstand stats
      If you you have no cases and they rise fast, then you have a high R number
      That was the UK at the beginning
      Since case numbers were doubling in a day or so, the UK R was probably more that 2 maybe 4, etc. As each person infected their entire family or work team etc.

      Now Germany has very few cases except a few hotspots
      So if there are 20 cases in the whole country and R rate of 1
      and then 2 factory workers infect 30 colleagues each you get those 60 new infections plus 18 new infections from the other 18 people, that’s 78 total.
      So you’ve got 78 from 20 people
      So on average each person has infected 4 people, ie R is nearly 4.

      Our local radio did just do the item at 5:45pm
      but I’d already heard those points on Talk Radio this morning from the Deutche Welle guest.

      • Up2snuff says:

        Stew, what was the UK’s R number at the beginning then? I do not recall it being above 1.00 but you could be right on that.

        I also understand the 3.0+ figure – which means 300 asymptomatic people in a thousand can infect effectively another 1000 by end of day three. That is what Niall Ferguson feared (he refered to it as ‘exponential’) a doubling every three days. He is on record for saying that on the BBC.

        Yes, I also get that the R number may vary from place to place within a country but does not the R number for a whole country take regional variations into account? I think that is the case here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51768274 is it not?

        I checked the BBC w-s; nothing on Home Page or the Europe section of the News Page before I posted.

          Up2stuff of course R was above 1
          If we started with 5 cases and the R number was 1
          We’d only have 5 new cases
          The higher above 1 R is the higher the expansion though the population,

    How ironic does it get, when three gay men, very probably relaxing after the stresses and strains of being as woke as woke can be on the BLM march, are slaughtered by a muslim terrorist – who is simply following a major tenet of his religion, written down, understood and obeyed in similar circumstances the world over.
    Not one major news source will face the reality of the situation, not one government or Christian spokesman will condemn the act for what it was, not one BLM voice will be raised in direct, honest, condemnation.

I assume that they are using the same scientific principles that are applied to the epidemic, ie none.

      They had a huge enquiry into racism in the (thuggish) police , couldn’t find any, so concluded it was indeed there, but so deeply ingrained, so totally hidden in plain view too, and everything inbetween …or something like that.
      So they invented a term: institutionalised racism, which would come in handy for any other cases of expalianing the unfindable.

        TLWEI / Eddy,

        These days the law has identified any object that could be included in the legislation as a ‘weapon’. Means should you need to turn to anything ‘handy’ such as a brick, that would be, in the circumstances deemed as being used as a weapon. You stand unprotected. Certainly as far as the police will be concerned.
        Prudent people are, “tooling themselves up” with weapons which are not illegal but may be if a circumstance arose where you had to use it. As above.
        I recently became aware that certain sports shops were being cleared out of certain items. This at a time when it was impossible to use them outside as a result of the lockdown. One seller/distributor has sold over 6,000 during the lockdown. And that’s just one.

        Ironside was the later series with Raymond Burr after the initial series of Perry Mason, but I believe he returned as Perry Mason for a few more episodes.

        Randall & Hopkirk was more of a comedy detective series, typical of the 70’s genre, alongside The Champions (I always wanted hair like Alexandra Bastedo), Department S, The Persuaders etc.

      As a rule of thumb all programmes made by any station in the last few years will have at least the minimum quota of BAME actors. It doesn’t matter if they are Scandi , BBC, ITV , French etc. Occaisionally a programme is set in a past era and it manages to avoid the need for BAMEs. Of course the BBCSM doesn’t do this and inserts BAMEs everywhere no matter how inappropriate. Infact I suspect that the more inappropriate the better for the BBC. The same of course is true of modern films, the black Churchill is just around the corner.

    Apparently just a few minutes after the brain-dead sheep all took the knee before kick-off, a small plane flew over the ground pulling a banner which said “White Lives Matter Burnley”.

    Burnley have issued a statement in which they described the banner as “offensive”. The BBC website has described it as an “Unwanted Plane Flight”.

    So there you have it. “Black Lives Matter” is acceptable and is being encouraged everywhere. “White Lives Matter” is offensive and unwanted.

      Burnley Football Club strongly condemns the actions of those responsible for the aircraft and OFFENSIVE banner that flew over the Etihad Stadium on Monday evening……….and will issue lifetime bans.

      Those responsible are not welcome at Turf Moor

      A spokesperson for Lancashire Constabulary has confirmed they are investigating the matter.

      You absolutely, absolutely cannot make up the politically correct utter hypocrisy.

      ‘White Lives Matter Burnley’

      Though clearly not in Reading.

        Now football has taken a moral stand with #BlackLivesMatter, why stop there? Manchester City is owned by a prince in the government of Abu Dhabi where women are jailed for being raped. Perhaps the players could take the knee for that, or wear that on their shirts once in a while.

        I’ve added Burnley FC to the ever-growing list of businesses that will never (again) benefit from my custom.

        As for Lancashire Police, I’d be interested to find out what crime they believe to have been committed, bearing in mind that alleged breaches* of the Air Navigation legislation fall within the remit of the CAA.

        *I’m not suggesting there has been such a breach in this instance.

      SR – Seppuku? I understand where you’re coming from, but do not turn your anger against yourself, not even metaphorically.
      The trick in this mad world was outlined by Rudyard Kipling in his poem ‘If’ :”…if you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs…”.
      A spiritual vision of what is going on might be one of demon possession. There seem to be an awful lot of possessed people about.
      There is an irony that this is all about ‘black’. The easiest place to believe in demon possession is Africa.
      Here in the ‘West’, we’re all much too advanced and beyond all that primitive stuff?
      But, by gum, there’s a lot of it about. It’s hard to explain where it comes from?
      “Virtue-signalling” doesn’t even begin to explain it. Signalling to whom? Why? What for? What a nice person one is?
      Dear, oh dear.
      Money? Who from whom? What about all the collateral damage? Any sane person would back off.
      That’s what we have to do. Take a step back. Switch off the telly.
      Do your own thing. But no damage1

    4:30pm R4 is doing a prog about online MISINFORMATION trickery

    Projection in BBC/libmob is routine
    They will point fingers at other people and accuse them
    and plant a SMEAR label on them to DEHUMANISE them, and poison their well.
    A PR trick I call “smear & dismis”
    … And most of the time BBC/libmob will actually be the ones guilty of the accusation.
    I don’t need to debunk BBC stuff, cos it’s almost always safe to assume they are BS.

    Towards the end of this prog
    Over in the US there was ASTRO-TURFING thing ( pretend grassroots campaign)
    ..a right-wing campaign to get America to re-open was pretending to be grassroots , cos each states campaign and website was similar

    Doh almost every campaign is not grassroots but say often organised from Labour Party HQ
    eg the Greta Campaign is not really grassroots.
    …. However the prog never showed that the Re-open campaign had ever claimed to be grassroots.

    The BBC went on
    ‘ We thought we’d found the man behind it ,
    a guy had bought up hundreds of domain names,
    but he turned out to be a sole (a lefty) who had done it to stop the righties
    Whereas the Re-open campaign was funded by an actual astroturfer one of the X Brothers”

    Stop right there
    … that lefty guy is WORSE than the righties
    he is using his wealth to vandalise their campaign

    =====================

    #2 Before that the prog had had an item about Korea and Russia or somewhere
    You wouldn’t believe it, but there are firms there
    who pay staff to sit all day typing things into the internet to push agendas

    FFS hello BBC meet this mirror !

    That is what you do, your tens of thousands of staff are constructing fake stuff to push agendas day in day out .

    The BBC is currently not allowing comments on the Manchester City vs Burnley game. The cowards at the BBC are censoring once again because they fear the narrative will go against them.

    As for these clubs that are taking the knee, when the crowds return I dare them to have the courage of their convictions and do this in front of the fans. My guess is that it would go down like a cup of cold sick and then what would they do? Ban most of their supporters?

      SpinningReith,
      Another programme you could have added to your list of Monday night’s viewing was a repeat of Police Interceptors on Channel 5.
      In it two gobby young (white) losers had their untaxed car seized.
      Why should we pay tax, they complained, when it just gets spent on Kosovan immigrants? For this they were belittled and ridiculed by the two police officers and the narration (by actor and comedian John Thomson). They were sneeringly asked, how does Road Tax go to Kosovans?
      As I’m sure most reading this are aware, this is incorrect. Road Tax hasn’t been collected in this country since 1937 – instead Vehicle Excise Duty is effectively general taxation so arguably a proportion of it does go to any Kosovan who might be claiming benefits in this country.
      In another segment of the programme another car was stopped and towed. During this incident a large group of mostly Asian youths gathered and pelted the police car with eggs and stones, breaking the windscreen. Instead of dealing with this disorder, the two officers grinned cheesily and drove away.
      (Asians gathering in a mob is a common occurrence in this type of Reality-TV show, especially in Can’t Pay? We’ll Take It Away! where dozens often turn up to try and prevent the bailiffs from collecting money or seizing goods).

        Some years ago we heard a noise in the back garden. It had started by the fence on the right-hand side, then someone ran across the rear of the house and continued by the left-hand fence.

        We rushed out the back and were just in time to catch a young lad by his legs and pulled him back down. He was now revealed by the light from the kitchen window and we could then see he was a young black lad who looked very scared.

        It turned out that he had been with two friends and they had spoken to an Asian girl in the street, whereupon they had been threatened by some Asian lads who phoned their mates.

        The black lads had managed to get over one of the neighbour’s gates and were trying to escape over the back gardens.

        We looked out the front and sure enough there were now three cars out there, each with about four passengers, some with baseball bats out patrolling the streets. They dispersed when a couple of police cars turned up.

        Clan ties are very strong in the Asian ‘community’. The idea that BAME is a cohesive, harmonious grouping is laughable.

          Sorry not much to do with BBC bias except I know they will be condemning the Burnley incident

          I saw a quote from a Burnley player saying the sign was ‘offensive’

          What sort of world do we live in when a sign saying white lives matter is offensive? Does that mean he disagrees with the statement – in which many more people would find that offensive.

          Is it now verboten to put any word in front of… Lives Matter…? Is it verboten to put any word between Black…..and…Matter?

          Or perhaps we here on this site are just a twitter mob living in a bubble? I don’t think so….but you can be sure that is what we will be called…with a Gammon comment thrown in ( whether it is true or not).

    The dreadful BBC simply cannot wait for its coverage of the latest Islamist terror attack to slide away from our notice.
    This morning I turned to my google device for the snap headlines – but heard no mention at all of the Reading murders on the BBC round-up.
    I then checked out the BBC website, and saw it was already relegated down to item no. 8 – being given less prominence than supposed outrage over someone flying a “White lives matter” banner in Burnley, for God’s sake.
    The BBC’s latest story on the Reading murders displays the usual BBC sleight of hand by playing up the killer’s “mental health” angle and, yet again, not even mentioning the word “Islamist”.
    We’re told the murderer “left Libya to escape the violence there”, had “suffered from post-traumatic stress” and his “long-standing mental health problems had been exacerbated by the coronavirus lockdown.”
    Poor thing. You can always rely on good old Dr Beeb for a kind bedside manner when it comes to making excuses for anti western terrorism.
    They’re banging on again about throwing more of our money at even more “diversity” on their programmes, yet the lack of diversity of thought on the BBC is an outrage.
    And the relegation in importance of the murder of white people (Lee Rigby, Keith Palmer and those poor Manchester Arena victims are now barely referenced) shows that this biased broadcaster is actively working against the majority.

      The BBC certainly can’t take any ‘pride’ in the way it is reporting the apparent homophobic terrror attack in Reading. You can practically hear the cogwheels grinding in the minds of BBC executives: “Islam good. LGBT good. Islamist attacks gay men – aargh! Does not compute! Does not compute! Ignore, ignore! Talk about something else! Spend £100 million more on diversity programming, zzzz…” (with apologies to Robbie the Robot from the movie Forbidden Planet).

      You have to shrug your shoulders in the sentence towards the bottom of the news item: ‘Counter terror police, who are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident, have said they are “keeping an open mind as to the motive for this attack”.’ They might as well add: ‘In an unrelated matter, the police are also setting up investigations in the hope of finding out what bears get up to in the woods and what religion the Pope might be’.
