Weekend Thread 8 August 2020

More nasty news from the Marxist BBC – it is spending £38 million – the equivalent of 241, 269 licence fees setting up a call centre and employing 800 people to chase the over 75s to get the licence tax from them . If anyone sees one of the 10 page letters being sent to over 75s please let this site know .

    On the BBC News channel just now, interviewing a Japanese girl about the Nagasaki 75th anniversary. She started off saying less people attended than previous years.

    Interviewer then asks, “how much anti American sentiment is there?”

    Japanese girl, “none”

    If we are getting the Navy into help solve the illegal migrants arriving after escaping from France then a practical way of returning them would be to use the submarines and approach the French coast and then shoot the illegal migrants out of the torpedo tubes and back into France.


    • G says:

      Well remember the Royal Navy has a lot going for it. After all, look at the stalwart work they put in, in the Med ferrying blacks from North Africa to Europe.

    Since the SNP don’t want the English to cross the border maybe we can offer an alternative. We could play a game of pass the parcel. The French have passed a lot of extra people we currently have in 4 star hotels to us. We now do the same and send them north to be put up in Scottish 4 star hotels, preferably where the SNP hang out as they love all “refugees”.


    • BigBrotherCorporation says:

      Excellent gb. Yes, comfortable, air-conditioned coaches waiting at Dover to drive them straight up to Coldstream, where they can be immediately issued with their new Scottish passports.

      Scotland will, of course, be ecstatic to receive them, as they love immigrants, and the enrichment they bring (just so long as they aren’t filthy Sasannachs). Plus, I heard they don’t fancy each other too much on the other side of the border (generations of inbreeding?) and an influx of vibrant, fertile, young fellows is what’s needed to bring a bit of vigour back to the bloodline, and colour io the cheek. Wasn’t that what wee Kranky was insinuating last year?

      Only one problem… we’ll need a wall and armed patrols on the border to prevent ‘incursions’… a bit like a certain Hadrian had built actually, come to think of it.


  7. G says:

    With the intransigence of various Governments over the decades, the Civil Service and all other prime influential bodies have been slowly infiltrated by Communists blacks and muslims. More so in the US where, additionally, the justice system is being destroyed from within. I don’t think any form of ‘Catchup’ in the West is now possible. It’s too late.


    • StewGreen says:

      Entryism is what you are talking about
      where the resources of huge bodies like the NGOs & charities are usurped by a minority with a political agenda.
      Sometimes that might include Black Power activists, or Islam agenda pushers.
      But is wrong to say that orgs are infiltrated by “blacks”
      a normal black or ethnic Muslim, British person has the same right to work in the org as a white person


      • G says:

        Well, on this topic, I must give accolade to the BBC and their policy agenda of alienation. Now, thanks only to their constant identification of Communists, blacks and muslims can I now confirm in my own mind that ‘majority’ as constituting the enemies within – the enemies of white people. I say, ‘majority’ because the BBC are anxious to tell me they are collectively the ‘majority’ in this country. In whatever way I can, I will endeavour faithfully and silently to discriminate against these people as not sharing my values. Thanks BBC.


      • G says:

        “But is wrong to say that orgs are infiltrated by “blacks”

        Visit any Ministry in London and you might change your mind.


        • StewGreen says:

          You may be thinking of a photo which is often labelled “Foreign Office staff”
          and is actually FakeNews cos it is a couple of staff visiting a BAME group


          • G says:

            No, I spent years visiting Ministeries. My own eyes don’t deceive.
            Probably why the BBC think their employment policy should follow the Governments.
            Another place where the 3.5% constituent part doesn’t seem to apply.


            • StewGreen says:

              2 years ago the FCO said 13.4%
              Although ethnic minority staff currently make up 13.4% of Foreign Office staff, 62.5% of those who have declared their heritage have spent over a decade in the lowest grades without progression, compared to 47% of all staff.


              What should it be ?
              #1 You want staff with language skills/cultural understanding etc.
              So maybe more BAME
              But #2 then you can’t employ someone who can be pressurised by a foreign government cos they have relatives overseas, so that would knock out a lot of the BAME in case
              That applies to Amol Rajan who used to work for them.

              I think the BAME employment rate could well end up less than the rate in the general population.

    BBC news on-line reports: ‘Coronavirus: Moral duty to get all children back in school – PM’


    ‘There is a “moral duty” to get all children back into schools in England next month, Boris Johnson has said.’

    Frankly that sounds like a hollow claim when it was the Tory Lockdown which preemptively closed the schools and sent the teachers home on full pay, supposedly because they were all in danger of imminent death.

    Effectively giving the teachers, at no financial and little public opinion cost to themselves, the grounds to go on indefinite strike against a government which an overwhelming proportion of them would have recently voted against and were still motivated to resist its main plank of policy (Brexit, of course).

    Even politically indifferent teachers must have looked on a fully subsidised open-ended sabatical as manna from heaven.

    As a political misjudgement, caused by apparent blithe ignorance of human nature and the absence of even a modicum of common sense, this ranks with the Blair administration bringing in a top rate of University fees and not guessing that every institution from Oxford to Scumbagtown College would award themselves the top price status.

    The Tory Lockdown ought to have had an end date. Months on it still does not. Wake up Boris, you blithering dunce.

    Tory Lockdown – a failed policy

    BBC: ‘Coronavirus: Redundancies rise fivefold as pandemic hits jobs’


    ‘The number of firms that notified the government in June about plans to cut 20 or more jobs was five times higher than in the same month last year, figures obtained by the BBC show.’

    ‘A Freedom of Information request shows that in June 1,778 firms said [they] were intending to cut more than 139,000 jobs in England, Wales and Scotland.’

    Why did this information require a FOI request?

    Why are Tory ministers not shouting these figures from the rooftops?

    The economy has been trashed by Tory Lockdown. It has to stop now. The government has to inform the public of the real danger we face. Deep, prolonged recession.

    Boris, get your government’s sun-tanned arses back to Westminster and start doing their jobs. Yes, it is August but there is a crisis here.

    The farcical spectacle of your schools minister left to comment on naval deployment yesterday tells me the cabinet have effectively left the building. It’s not good enough.


    • G says:

      As the unemployment rises, so will the social unrest and violence toward whites principally amongst the imports. They have proven conclusively that their grievances, if aired physically, will work.
      But, “The government has to inform the public of the real danger we face. Deep, prolonged recession.” Alternative is the Brazil style of Government so if you have any ageing relatives, particularly those will any important health problems, I guess you need a serious conversation with them about what the future almost certainly holds for them. Check their wills and suggest the Belsen option as the alternative.


      • Halifax says:

        G I agree.
        At the moment things aren’t that bad plenty of jobs food on the table etc, but as sure as eggs are aggs the cycle will change (whiteys fault) and things will take a downturn big style and indigenous populations will turn against migrants i imagine Austria will be one of the first to rebel against woke leftist dogma.

    I’m generally puzzled about the ‘default’ figure of 5k paid to so-called people smugglers for the jaunt across the channel. Assuming it’s 5k in cash, that’s quite a wedge to be trekking with across the Sahara/Balkans or wherever.
    Surely if 20 of them used some initiative, they could club together and buy a fairly decent ocean going boat for under 100k.
    Anyway, I’m sceptical.

    I don’t know anything about Dan O’Mahoney the ex-commando who Priti Patel has just hired (he may well have been ‘got at’ for all I know) but Major-General Julian Thompson is one ex-Royal Marine the government should definitely be paying attention to in relation to the Brexit negotiations and the EU defence structures so beloved of traitorous civil servants such as Angus Lapsley.

    Here’s the text:

    Our sovereignty on defence matters will mean nothing if we are drawn in by EU’s siren song
    The Sunday Telegraph 9 Aug 2020
    By Major-General Julian Thompson

    Buried deep within the Brexit negotiations is an EU siren song. The temptation, dangled by the Political Declaration, is for the UK to participate formally in EU defence structures, in return for financial benefits to the UK defence industry.

    As explained in a recent paper by the Centre for Brexit Policy, titled Replacing the Withdrawal Agreement, there is no requirement for the UK to do this, and we should firmly decline. Continuing these relationships would be a direct infringement on the UK’s capacity as a sovereign state with a robust independent strategic defence industry, governed by UK rules, decisions and national interest.

    Agreeing to participate in the schemes put forward in the Political Declaration would maintain the defence aspects of the EU treaties and allow the EU to impose its policy on UK defence matters.

    The EU has made it exceedingly difficult to dip in and out of its various defence systems or arrangements. The purpose for these structures is to further EU political integration. Participation in one scheme often then requires you to sign up to another, drawing nations into the ever-growing Gordian knot of industrial, financial, political and military integration.

    In return for restricting UK defence capabilities and stopping a clean-break Brexit, the EU offers funding. But the UK never receives more funding from the EU than it contributes. Moreover, EU defence procurement funding has an unambiguous design to channel R&D co-operation away from non-EU states. Additionally, EU funding requires onerous project management, joint activity, joint ownership and supervision, further reducing UK defence freedom of choice, especially where it is so heavily tied to the wider picture of EU policy on defence.

    There is another aspect of this, the tension between EU integrationist policies and the wider Nato alliance, specifically the relationship between the EU and the United States. US officials called the European Defence Fund and Permanent Structured Co-operation criteria “poison pills” that are “a dramatic reversal of the last three decades of the openness of the transatlantic defence sector”. In the guise of “political integration”, the EU has been developing a unified defence union and its own defence industry.

    The UK must reaffirm our commitment to Nato and the Five Eyes network, by assessing every request on a case-by-case basis and enforcing an approach that ensures no widening remits in our sovereign defence and security co-operation with the EU.

    The choice with the EU’s siren song is clear: “Just say No”.


    • G says:

      The island,
      When the current round of Withdrawal is completed and, if then, one can put hand on heart and state with certainty, “We are out”, what’s the betting that Johnson will leave some sort of, ‘key in the door’ – just in case. As only a pro-EU PM could……

    ‘BBC hurt my Willie’

    No, not some new aggressive tactics from TV Licencing. Nor is it our BBC’s new wave of diversity policies pushing the transgender agenda to extraordinary lengths. It is the Daily Star Sunday’s cheeky headline for a story about snooker player Willie Thorne. You’ll remember Willie Thorne – big seventies tash and bald as a billiard ball… (Willie Thorne, ‘es ‘air’s all gorn). Seems his ex says the BBC didn’t treat him too well. Him and us all, luv.

    The Express features ‘Princess Anne, style icon at 70’ which tends to show anything could come back into fashion if you wait long enough.

    Groundhog day in the Sunday Times ‘Banks face second wave of PPI payments’ – note here the deployment of the fashionable term second wave and note too PPI which we thought we’d heard the last of – well that kind of rhymes with the still fashionable PPE.

    If you’re still interested in Posh & Becks (say hello to the 1990s for us) you may want to pick up the Sunday Mirror – which boasts on its masthead ‘Sunday newspaper of the year’ – which year would that be, we wonder?

    Like chewing gum stuck to your shoe the tenacious Jamie Oliver is back in the Mail ‘fabulous recipes from his new book’

    Don’t over do it…

    ‘Obese may be told to stay at home if virus rebounds’ threatens the Telegraph. Or what, you’ll get a call from the Fat Police?

      Being ‘comforted’ by a new bird/bloke is a turn-on for shagmeisters, ‘stepping out’, means they’ve been at it like rabbits all night, and sunglasses are used to hide the bruises/hangover/bloodshot eyes at the same time!

      And not a mention of a hamster anywhere either!

      Whatever happened to proper journalism, eh…

        The Mr & Mrs Johnny Depp court case gave us most of the above press cliches.

  14. digg says:

    BBC TV morning news pulled on some posh white bloke to respond to the possibility of using troops to handle the channel raft musical chairs fiasco.

    Didn’t catch his name but I would guess he is probably in some sort of quango occupation, and probably on a 6 figure salary.

    He said “Instead of mounting a forces blockade we should be welcoming ALL these people into our Country and giving them the chance to get a better life”

    Like now then! And did he mean ALL the 20+ million or so watching what is going on and getting ready right now to follow their mates for the good life?

    If so we will need the biggest hotel building program in history. Maybe The Hilton Group could take on the task and possibly rename the Company to “UpToTheHilton!


    • theisland says:

      Wasn’t Lammy was it?


    • fakenewswatcher says:

      digg- 20+million? You’re underestimating the potential. Currently we have naval vessels in the Med to help Arabs and Africans across to Italy. There are German and Dutch ‘humanitarian’ vessels doing that full-time. Doubt beeb will reveal anything until the time is ripe. Many of these ‘migrants’ will wind up in Calais etc. from where they will come to Britain. Do a little research on forthcoming population increases in Africa.
      My guess is that upwards of 100 to 300 million in Africa will be heading north within the next few years, target Europe, that includes Britain. Little boats? Unless someone in Britain grows a spine, we ain’t seen nothing yet, I fear.
      If Erdogan opens the Balkan route, you can include several million a year more, from the Middle East.
      Coming out of the EU may have been completely meaningless, as far as ‘migration’ goes, I fear. Mrs May signed the UN ‘migrant compact’, but that is not even needed as the ‘Law of the Sea’ mixed with a dash of asylum policy doeas the trick. Wouldn’t be the least surprised if the migrant compact (still an advisory at this stage) becomes Law, to firm things up, and Boris signs with great ceremony…
      The incessant drumbeat of ‘black Renaissance’ and ‘Black Lives Matter’ and black culture and blacks in every TV programme you see in Britain, and every advert too, is preparing us all for a big invasion. Your friendly beeb will help out with that.
      So far there seems to be no will to stop said invasion.
      Au contraire. I’m not even a Trump fan, but unless we find a Trump, who puts his foot down and says ‘NO!’, we’d better start building lotsa four-star hotels. And we’d better make some space…get rid of a few of the ‘elderly’, perhaps?

    You can’t expect plod to do very much these days, Vlad, least of all support their communities.

    Here in leafy Kent, we have all the blasted illegals coming ashore to be looked after carefully, while war vets get turfed out of their accommodation at a whim.

    On a personal note, I’m a ‘member’ of a small but fabulous bunch of gals and guys, who set up a Speedwatch group, to try and stop bloody little hooligans belting around at high speed, and ruining everyone’s right to peace and quiet, and a danger-free village.

    As nearly all of us are over 70, we’re not allowed out at all to operate the speed indication machine (it’s only an advisory thing – there are loads in this part of the country), but plod says that their insurance doesn’t cover being gobbed at by some illiterate moron, which they have been known to do, hence the dangerous bastards continue to flout the law, and we can’t even cross the blasted road for fear of a brain-dead plonker showing off his sodding motorbike!

    I always try and remember the scene from ‘The Great Escape’, when Steve McQueen ties a wire across the road and pinches the Kraut’s bike, and feel a bit better after that…

    I might write to the BBC about this, they care, don’t they…

    • BRISSLES says:

      I live in a no through road, 0n which cars carrying kids and parents to Brownies like to ignore the 20mph speed limit. I have been known on occasions to walk my dog down the middle of the road at a leisurely pace, thus holding up all the cars behind me, until I see fit to mount the pavement. Works a treat – but wouldn’t recommend on normal highways (!).

      I’ve become really obstinate in my later years – perhaps its the Meldrew syndrome.

    All Ear Nose and Throat surgeons and Public Health England were notified about the importance of loss of smell in March 2020 by the British Association of ENT surgeons.

    “A teenager has died after being stabbed in London’s West End.”

    “A man in his late teens was slashed to death with a machete in broad daylight in central London”

    If the second report is factually accurate then I’d say the first a little misleading, borderline fake news even. Have a guess matching outlet to report.


    No prizes for the right answer, any speculation about those involved is just racism, your silence is usually violence but in this case keep schtum.

    Surely France is missing a trick here.

    We are told by our government (all parties) by the msm, by the snowflakes and wokerati, the luvvies and all the others we on here are all too aware of, that immigrants give us a financial gain, that they more than pay for themselves and they ‘put more in than they take out’

    Instead of us giving the frenchies more millions (£30 million is the latest demand) to do their job, we should be getting money from them to return all these enriching money makers.

    Every lilo or inflatable which arrives full of doctors, nuclear scientists, architects etc is our gain and france’s loss.

    Each penniless, destitute, enricher paying £5,000 to escape from the horror that is France where their lives are at risk.

    France’s loss, our gain.
    Is that it Boris?

    How safe do the children have to be when, the last I heard, 3 schoolchildren had died of covid (out of the 46,000+ deaths) and each one of these 3 had other serious conditions.

    School must be the safest place of all.

    Methinks the lefty teachers (a good 99%+ of teachers) have other agendas and want to keep their (full pay) holiday going on for as long as possible.

    Teachers, you have more chance of being killed by lightning than by this virus.

    ANDREW NEIL ‘LINED UP’ TO BECOME BBC CHAIRMAN: Steven Brown (Express 9/8) suggested that as part of a bridge building with the BBC, Boris Johnson was lining up former Sunday Times editor and BBC presenter Andrew Neil to succeed Sir David Clementi as chairman of the corporation. Mr Brown also said that Mr Johnson had reportedly held peace talks with Lord Hall, the outgoing director general, following a year of ‘tough exchanges’. He added that other frontrunners to succeed the current chairman when he retired in February included Nicky Morgan, the former culture secretary, Charles Moore, former editor of the Daily Telegraph, former Chancellor George Osborne, and Amber Rudd, the former home secretary, although the latter was likely to be opposed by senior Boris Johnson aide Dominic Cummings. Mr Brown quoted a senior government source as saying:

    “The Prime Minister believes the BBC is one of Britain’s best assets, with the soft power projects abroad. He thinks it can do more of that.”

    Tim Shipman (£ Sunday Times 8/8) also reported that Mr Neil was being considered as the next BBC Chairman.

    It doesn’t sound like Boris wants the bBC to be eradicated does it? I’ve also seen reported that the pensioner letters being sent out are at least 10 pages long.

    Following a thread about an Afghan Migrant in Sweden who had his conviction for the rape of a 13 year old girl overturned by the courts, one commenter referred to something called the “Frankfurt School”, basically an ultra Marxist organisation that has been active for years and still is.

    The Frankfurt School apparently had a secret 11 point “plan”.

    1. The creation of racism offences
    2. Continual change to create confusion
    3. The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children
    4. The undermining of schools’ and teachers’ authority
    5. Huge immigration to destroy identity

      Goes back a bit earlier than the Frankfurt School.

      Merkel is a recipient of the Kalegri prize. It probably goes all the way to the top of the New World Order.


    • G.W.F. says:

      The Frankfurt school has many distinct members and has become the bogeyman of right wing politics. Sure, most are left of centre and some have followed the Marxist, Gramsci’s march through the institutions. But there is little expressed support for the kind of crude return to Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, Mao and Castro’s authoritarian Marxism. Marcuse was a darling of the hippies but his book, Soviet Marxism, is a first class exposure of modern communism. Most of these guys were literary snobs and defenders of the western philosophical tradition, supported classical music and the enlightenment vision. And you would not find much enthusiasm for Stormsy and rap in Adorno’s essay on Jazz.
      In a conversation with one of the Frankfurters I was told of Lukacs attempt to restore a humanist perspective in his revised version of Hegel’s philosophy and was told by a bozo in the Hungarian Communist Party during the 1950’s that this Hegel is a menace who ought to be taken outside and be shot. The Frankfurters can be criticised but they do not share the ignorance and disdain for knowledge displayed by our media and the judiciary


      • 7Clubs says:

        The 1970’s far left terrorist Groups in Europe like the Baader-Meinhof group took Marcuse and the Frankfurt School as an inspiration.Roger Scruton became a conservative after living in Paris in 1968 and seeing first hand the far left riots

    All Joe Biden fans here should go to R4, where Huw Edwards enthuses. I’m sure there are also a lot of Hugh E fans on this site.
    Joe is an average guy who likes to talk, apparently. Huw has found a Republican senator who says you cannot but like Biden. Could we even see Kamala Harris as his running mate? A heartbeat away from the presidency?
    Well, perhaps we should expect Huw to be just a little…er…biased?
    Just a little?
    Oh yes, Huw has even found Republicans against Trump, one of whom will be voting for Biden. Surprising, no?
    Make that more than one. Cos Huw has found Scarramuchi.


    • fakenewswatcher says:

      Apologies – it sounded like Huw, but it turned out to be James Naughtie.
      Still, another beeboid who doesn’t sound like a Trump fan, so really, makes little difference.
      The conclusion features three laws of physics which apparently tell us why Trump can’t win.
      Laws of physics. Who would have thought?

        The BBC really is a world leader in some areas, not least toadying up to the United States’ ruling elite.

      Have the media established yet what actually happened and who was in which seat, as this does seem to have confused matters as Age of a new Dawn giggled her way through her latest Lammytable race bait performance, securing solidarity from Dave, natch, Champion Ash, that odd Dr. woman the bbc like, that even odder goofy actor who now just plays an even more deranged Paul Mason…

    Everyone – everyone – you can stop moaning about hundreds invading blighty every day because we now have a CCTC -yes – a

    Even the title suggests incompetence –

    Where is the ‘clandestine ‘ ?
    And it’s not a ‘threat ‘ it’s real and been happening for ages .

    Apparently the new CCTC is on his holidays in Spain so when he and Mrs CCTC get back in a couple of weeks he can start work – after the 14 day quarantine . Then the new CCTC will start looking at CCTV footage …… then it’s Christmas holidays* ……

    *The final paragraph might be ‘alt news’ but nothing surprises any more – personally I’d preferred a ‘Channel Czar ‘Or ‘supremo’ or ‘task force ‘ but that will come next year when the CCTC retires and goes on the board of SERCO or a hotel chain ….. gotta laugh .


  38. pugnazious says:

    Lord Hall rushes to bend the knee as he grovels in apology for the use of the word ‘nigger’ in BBC reports about racist attacks….clearly the word was an essential part of the reports indicating why the attack was definitely racist. …though maybe not…maybe, as with the word ‘terrorist’, it all depends on context….

    ‘The word ‘terrorist’ itself can be a barrier rather than an aid to understanding. We should convey to our audience the full consequences of the act by describing what happened. We should use words which specifically describe the perpetrator such as ‘bomber’, ‘attacker’, ‘gunman’, ‘kidnapper’, ‘insurgent’ and ‘militant’. We should not adopt other people’s language as our own; our responsibility is to remain objective and report in ways that enable our audiences to make their own assessments about who is doing what to whom.’

    Thee BBC is of course the last to report the use of the phrase ‘Allah Akbar’ in relation to attacks by,er, mentally ill people who are definitely not Muslims despite being born one, raised as one and committing the act ‘in the name of Allah’.

    New Thread


  41. pugnazious says:

    Amazing how children are being brainwashed into accepting one view of history…and mostly by one man on the BBC…Greg Jenner from ‘Horrible Histories’. We know he isn’t shy about using his platform to spread his own personal opinions as ‘facts’ such as on Brexit but of course his standard narrative about British history as a whole is that Britain, Empire and white people in general are an evil, hideous lot.

    He seems to have complete carte blanche to disparage and demonise Whites and their history…witness his latest on the Aztecs….we’re told that colonialism brings us great foods which we stole from the Aztecs but it kills all the natives.

    Aztec culture was just like communism…the warfare, human sacrifices and slavery were brushed over and glibly dismissed…Jenner telling s this ‘communism’ was ‘such a good way of life’.

    Many natives died from diseases…Jenner says this was because the colonisers were ‘disgusting, dirty and diseased….it was just horrible.’…but human sacrifice and slavery were such a good way of life.

    This is in fact pretty standard fare for the BBC…previous ‘histories’ of the Aztecs and Incas have been equally dismissive of any claims about violence, warfare, slavery and human sacrifice.

    It’s always a paradox that the British Empire is portrayed as the Evil Empire but anyone else’s, as long as they’re Blackish, is good, the Muslim one a ‘golden age’ no less.

    The BBC’s blurb is that this programme ‘It’s history for people who don’t like history! ‘…actually…it’s history for people who don’t like Britain written by people who don’t like Britain.

    The BBC pushing the Trans agenda…agender….

    ‘”If we accept that gender is something imposed on us,” writes Bernardine Evaristo, “as opposed to intrinsic to who we are as humans, then what does it matter if people want to switch genders?”

    Bernardine discusses the “gender revolution” and our attitudes to the disruption of traditional gender roles. ‘

    Listened to some of it and it seemed to be all black people….look through the schedules and you’d think we were paying for the Nigerian Broadcasting Service….not just a swarm of black faces but a torrent of Black issues and narratives sweeping all regular broadcasting aside.

    Funny thing…apparently the phrase ‘Black Lives Matter’ is too restrictive, too narrow, too bigoted….what about lesbians, gays and trans people….or disabled people or…or…white people?
    No…no…white people didn’t get a mention…coz that would be racist to say their lives matter….they are the oppressors, they are the killers of blacks, they are the ones who need to shut up and get out of the way.

    I wonder if the Guardian will be filling the frontpage wth outrage at this attempt to water down the BLM’s message…will the police investigate this clearly racist attempt to attack BLM? Will Lord Hall be apologising very shortly?

    Probably not.

    The BBC is very concerned about Lebanon…it treats us to long wails of distress from the inhabitants who have had enough of their country trying to ‘kill them’ over decades of war and neglect…all due to the myriad diverse groups and warlords who never agree on anything, a country torn apart by its diversity.

    Of course what Lebanon is is exactly what the BBC wants for this country…an uber diverse, multicultural society in which no one group dominates, nobody has any national identity and no-one has any national loyalty…their will be no ‘nation state’, no flag to rally around, no ‘British’ identity, no national pride or unity.

    Instead there will be extreme identity politics, ultra polarisation, destabilisation, massive distrust and corruption, and eventually, as there will be no national army or police to control things, local warlords will enforce the ‘peace’, ensuring of course total and eternal war…ala Somalia…or Lebanon…..Muslim Patrols and the Black FF Force…lol….worked out well in the CHAZ in the US didn’t it?

    The BBC is the biggest danger to this country….the BBC complains about RT but it is in fact the BBC whch does the most damage to our democracy, to our society, to our way of life.

  45. pugnazious says:

    Hmmmm….BBC reports…

    ‘The BMW was being driven by a male friend, who is also black, and it was pulled over by two police cars, Ms Butler said.’

    No video on the BBC site…the Mail has it and shows she was driving and she had a white, male passenger next to her…..


    Hmmmm even more….the video seems to have been reversed so that it looks like Butler was driving…look at the police uniform…the badge is usually, always, on the left…here on the right….did Butler reverse the video to sex up her claims? Looks like the white man was actually driving.

    Sky News cuts just as Butler pans onto him…as it would ruin the narrative of racial profiling….


  46. pugnazious says:

    LOL….someone’s orientated the video of Butler correctly….you can see driver is white or very, very light mixed race….his ‘blackness’ would be indistinguishable by a police officer driving near-by I might suggest.


    • scribblingscribe says:

      If Dawn Butler switched the video, then there is a danger it was done for malicious reasons. If she didn’t switch it deliberately then she needs to apologise for the implications of her error.

      If the driver was white, then the police pulled over a driver for non racial reasons, again, the lady ought to apologise for her uncalled for accusations.

      If Sky or the BBC were aware of the ‘unintended’ inference of the video then they too should apologise.

      I and my wife have been pulled over a few times by the police while driving. We are white and live in a low crime seaside village but respect that the police have a tough job dealing with mouthy, self righteous people, so we choose to handle the inconvenience with patience.

      Still read this blog even though I very rarely post, but. . .
      It’s late at night and I’m giving these videos a bit of amateur analysis. Noticed a couple of things:
      At 13-14 seconds in the Sky News Twitter video there is a woman pushing a bicycle, the chainrings are on the left side of the bike, should be on the right. There is some text on the wall behind her, looks ‘mirrored’ to me, ditto the letters behind the policeman’s ear immediately afterward.

    In the light of BLM and the Dawn Butler incident, the Met have issued the following instruction to all officers, effective immediately: To avoid accusations of racial profiling, never ever question or arrest a black under any circumstances, including if they’re chasing another black down Oxford Street brandishing a machete, or blowing each others brains out in Brixton.


    • BigBrotherCorporation says:

      That’s the politest police officer I’ve ever seen.

      Yes, it’s not nice getting stopped by the police, even worse getting arrested, but they do need to be allowed to question people… otherwise, how can they do their job and what is the point in them?
