    Meanwhile, some reactions to the Glasgow stabbings:

    Prime Minister: ‘deeply saddened…’

    Starmer: ‘deeply concerned…’

    Muslim MP Humza Yousaf: ‘Please do not circulate rumours…’

    I’m glad our lad Humza has got his priorities right, namely to protect his own.

    He could have added: unless those rumours are that it was an islamophobic white supremacist, in which case please circulate away to your heart’s content.

    OK Fed, you asked about QT.

    I thought I’d take one for the team and watch it.

    The panel was one third non white (representing the 13% non white population?)
    The 12 on the audience tv panel were 5 non white.
    So far, I think all of them have mentioned they are Uni graduates and all are under 30.
    The first two questions were by blacks.

    Q1. About coming out of lockdown. The 6 on the panel and the guests spent 20 minutes agreeing with each other that something should be done and things need to be clearer.
    Fiona Bruce kept quiet until the Tory (Barclay) was speaking and then she started the expected continuous interruptions (but only him)

    Q2. About what is going to be done for young people looking for jobs.
    Same as above and 45 minutes in still on this question.

    There’s about 15 minutes left and I’m losing the will to live so I’m switching off now.

    A completely boring 45 minutes typified by ‘George the poet’ droning on.

    The only good thing I can say would be if you are having trouble sleeping then watch this.

    I see something is happening in Glasgow. Can I apply for the job of Priti’s speech writer.
    Here’s the speech I’ve written for her;

    Lessons will be learned.

      EG – George the ‘poet’? I didn’t listen to this, but I noticed with interest how hard beeb have worked over many months to support his claim that he’s a poet. I remember some of his ‘poetry’…

      Clearly, you are now a poet, if you claim to be one? Add the word to your name, in case no one is impressed by your poetry.

      I think I’ll claim to be a millionaire, and see what happens. I’ll call myself ‘Fake, the Millionaire’…

    Here are a few questions that will never be asked:

    What benefits to white people has desegregation brought?

    What benefits to society has female emancipation given us?

    What benefits to white civilisation has state education given to us?

    Judging by the rioters and the preponderance of ethics and young women amongst them, I’m not sure there have been any.


  5. Beltane says:

    Bernie Ecclestone has had the temerity to suggest that there is more racism between coloured races than white.
    Perfectly true of course – perhaps more coverage should be given to the way Arabs, Indians and especially Chinese see their black brothers – but naturally he’ll still be pilloried for saying so. Telling the truth on race falls increasingly on the deafest ears known to history.
    Bernie also said that Lewis Hamilton won’t make much difference to attitudes within Formula 1 – but then he remembers Lewis before the boy became a ludicrous parody of himself. That man should change his name to Osama, he’s so Bling-laden.

    Thank you for your service . I think your report was more exciting than the QT – I thought BBC policy was to have an odd panelist so I suppose the poet had the duty this time .

    As for Glasgow – move along nothing to see – unless the dead are non white – then the BBC will have the ‘incident ‘ they’ve been waiting for to get the campaign fired up .

    I suppose a fight will break out between crankie and Priti about who gets to do the ‘thoughts and prayers ‘ routine …. unless crankie has already done it . Norwegians involved ? …after their Friday bash ?

    For those on Parler David Vance is in full flow and a different version of the truth will appear there as opposed to the filtered propaganda version the BBC will be putting out ….


    • Darcy3 says:

      Too late F2 Kranki is in there like a rat up a drainpipe

      The reports from Glasgow City Centre are truly dreadful. My thoughts are with everyone involved. I am being updated as the situation becomes clearer. Please help the emergency services do their jobs by staying away from the area – and please don’t share unconfirmed information.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Darcy – ta – they go for the ‘don’t share information’ stuff now to prevent the truth coming out . Fortunately there are already images on Parler ….


      • Van Helsing says:

        In other words, give us time to ‘launder’ any information that runs contrary to our agenda.


      • john in cheshire says:

        What thoughts is the wee krankie having?
        Is it fan- dabbi- dozi?

        She’s a stupid, English hating, vindictive bitch, and no mistake.


        • Van Helsing says:


          Fair points, to which I’d simply add that she and her equally unpleasant chums hate a significant proportion of Scots as well. Mind you, we’re not exactly enamoured with her either…


          • john in cheshire says:

            Van, yes, I’m not directing my ire generally. The SNP are behaving just like Nazis do everywhere.


  7. Darcy3 says:

    Just four days ago, Glaswegian leftists held a rally in which they chanted: “Refugees are welcome here”. Today, a mass stabbing attack (potentially terrorist in nature) has occurred at a Glasgow hotel used to house asylum seekers. Will the demonstrators accept any responsibility?


  8. s.trubble says:

    I,ve got the complete Fawlty Towers scripts…..for those missing the Germans …one of the great lines as he is leading the party of Germans into the dining room….

    ( Basil bows and gracefully ushers them into the dining room)

    ” Oh Good, please do allow me. May I say how pleased we are to have some Europeans here now that we are on the Continent”


    • john in cheshire says:

      Wait until these retards read Raymond Chandler novels.
      The euphemistic ‘ n-word’ ( and ordinarily I don’t have a problem using it) is used quite liberally.

      That he’s a great novelist will count for nothing if he is caught in their sights.


  9. Darcy3 says:

    I do recall him having an argument with the Germans about a trivial matter and he said “you started it”

    they replied “no we didn’t”

    he said “yes you did you invaded Poland”


  10. Sluff says:

    The Police have already issued their interim report on the fatal stabbings in Glasgow.

    1. A man did it
    2. We don’t know why.
    3. But we think he had mental health issues
    4. It had nothing to do with a certain religion
    5. A peaceful candle lit vigil will take place tonight and officers will be encouraged to Take the Knee in support of #Glasgowlivesdontmatter
    6. Lessons will be learned.


    • taffman says:

      6. Can’t learn lessons yet because the schools are still closed.


    • G.W.F. says:

      7. Glasgow is a multicultural city and we will not let this atrocity divide us.
      8. The attacker was known to M!5


  11. Monty says:

    Sky news reporter said migrants were complaining the hotel was untenable. Unable to contact their relatives as the wifi signal was not strong enough.

  13. Van Helsing says:

    There was another stabbing in central Glasgow yesterday – in spite of what you may think or have heard, it’s really not a common occurrence in the city centre.

    Anyway, the part that interests me is that the police did not mention the suspect’s skin colour in the otherwise fairly comprehensive description they issued:

    “aged around 20, slim build with a dark beard, wearing a khaki jacket, similar trousers, a grey baseball cap with the logo “NY” in white, dark trainers and carrying a JD Sports pink or red bag.”

    It’s utter speculation on my part, but might there be a link between yesterday’s stabbing and today’s mass event?


  14. AsISeeIt says:

    The authorities were formerly in a strong position to have stopped the descent into street chaos. By authorities I mean Boris, Mayor Khan & the Met Police in the capital. They had previously clamped down hard on the anti-lockdown protest. But when the BLM marches were about to begin the following weekend instead of issuing paliative expressions of support and understanding for black lives but make crystal clear that street protests were not allowed, they cravenly caved in. This was a major tactical mistake. At that point the public would have been behind the government had any small scale aggravation kicked off.
    What we got was BLM marches turning to violence in any case. Now we have a very dangerous situation with public frustration simmering on all sides. Weakness will be found out. We have a population that is increasingly disrectful of law and order by both our own education system & large scale inward migration of outsiders.

    Not to mention irresponsible opposition and media stirring of the volatile pot.

    Do we now track the “K” coefficient ?

    [The fluctuating ratio of stab victims to Corona deaths in a given population]


    • Loobyloo says:

      There will be a large spike in Covid cases – attributed to beach visits (not protests of course). Same in Houston where there were masses going to the seaside at Memorial Day (and protests…). Governor Abbott has closed bars, stopped river rafting?? And cut down restaurant capacity…is that really the cause?? Many younger people presenting at hospital this time. If we don’t learn to live with this we are certainly doomed, but conveniently that fits right in with the global power plans. Could get rid of Trump, Boris and maybe Brexit in the space of a few years.


  15. AsISeeIt says:

    ‘Police Scotland said the situation was “contained” and there was no danger to the general public.’


    Now isn’t that exactly what the police said last week in Reading?

    The only fix I can see is an immediate end to all aspects of lockdown. Kick start the economy. Get the youngsters back in school and back to work with bars and entertainment venues properly reopened. Not treating people like lepers. Otherwise this looks like being a long hot summer of discontent, made murderous by these sons of…. fill in your own answers to that one.


    • john in cheshire says:

      Aren’t the people who were murdered, members of the general public?


  16. Fedup2 says:

    Heading for a quiet weekend of traditional summer slaughter — the latest this week is still developing so im going to put the new thread up in a bit ….


  17. StewGreen says:

    Em Glasgow we don’t know the ethnicity of the attacker
    except if it was a white guy, the establishment usually say pretty quickly.
    There might well be plenty of white nutters in Glasgow.
    Terrorism hasn’t been mentioned has it ?


  18. Guest Who says:

    Totally OT, but… given this is a site about the bbc, totes could be.

    The retort, I mean.
