        Good God, they know very little at 18, so what the H do they the idiot powers, think (if they think at all) that young people of 16 will really know or have any real idea of the world-only what they might have been led to believe is knowledge. Don’t know about 16 year olds to day, but for me Politics was the last thing on my mind at 16-sport, and girls possibly the main items of interest. For goodness sake leave them to be young, they will grow old quickly enough.

      Should money be paid to past victims of slavery?

      Not possible. Both the Roman owners and British slaves are dead.
      So the Romans cannot pay the victims because they are dead, and the victims cannot receive the money because they are also dead.

      However modern day slavery is still rife in Africa with some central African nations having over two percent of the population as slaves. For instance, the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, called “Slavery’s Last Stronghold”, has around 90,000 Black Slaves (Haratin) owned by White Moors (Arabs and Berbers).

      So answering the BBC’s question “Should money be paid to past victims of slavery?” It is possible for money from Arabs to be paid to past victims of slavery, if the Blacks, are first, freed from slavery.

      Also, according to Wikipedia. In the 21st Century, almost every country has legally abolished chattel slavery, but the number of people currently enslaved around the world is far greater than the number of slaves during the historical Atlantic slave trade.

        Richard, the BBC appear to be in favour of modern slavery because the BBC appear to want trafficking gangs to be able to maintain or even increase their abhorrent trade.

      • tarien says:

        Indeed Richard almost every country may have abolished chattel slavery, and as you say we are in fact all enslaved one way or another. Today we have all become slaves; slaves to the powers of mafia banksters of finance; slaves to the western lie-propaganda; to the lobbies and their giant all dominating corporations-to the war-industry, because we happily believe what we are told about ever-increasing terrorism that needs to be fought with eternal wars; slaves to the environment-destructive hydocarbon industry; to the pharma-industry, to senseless consumerism-and formostly to greed, endless greed that drive endless growth, nurturing endless competition formenting adversity, destroying solidarity, instead of amicable cooperation for a humonious human cohabitation. We have been believing whatever lie they vomit-its more comfortable to believe a lie than to confront the truth-that is self-imposed slave- hood. That is how we have gone because I fear we are clearly on an alomst irreversible downward track-sliding and running towards our own demise-into-darkness of chaos-as this plague now demonstrates.

          The litmus test for me is Physics so yesterday I searched the net for a past paper to have a look at. I found one for 2018 GCSE with an Exam Board I recognised amongst the now plethora of other exam boards (why so many?). I did this because I achieved a Grade A in physics many, many years ago. I recall the lady that handed me my certificate said to me that she had never seen a Grade A in Physics before.
          2018 GCSE paper? I reckon half the people of a group taken at random could have spontaneously answered enough of the question to have at least got a pass mark.

        Many have said this before-Time to go and to leave the European Union and its nasty distorted outlook on the future. The UK can move on and trade happily with the rest of the world. However the European Union has to cease to be as is and return all the present nations involved back to run themsleves as before, if not the USA will eat them up and especially if the Democratic Party are successful in the next presidential election-it has been the intention for many years by a few to develop a world order governed by perhaps 4 major powers and Europe will come inside one of those powers. On its own the UK might well be closer to the USA but in the most able to operate its own Parliament.

    A challenge for the weekend.

    I am sick of those awful trailers before the six o’clock and ten o’clock news shows. They almost always feature one or more BAME people and almost always something violent.

    My father when he was alive always used to put the volume on mute and try to change channel only at the last second as he used to say my mother was frightened by the trailers.

    So the weekend challenge .. See if the BBC can have a Six o clock or Ten o’clock news without either a BAME or violent trailer before it.

    Come on fox news .. Or similar .. Please come over here and give us a choice .. Half the population or more will support your advertisers even if the lefties kick up a fuss.

        Answer me this, while we’re at it, if they’re so intent on integrating why do they stick with calling their kids (who are born here) names only found within their own cultures ? Surely that’s the first step of integration. But no, they may want all this country has to offer, but keeping their own culture is paramount at all costs. As Jim Royle would say “integration my a…..se”.

          Brissels,
          Integration became unnecessary after Blair’s multiculturalism drive twenty years ago. Indeed the idiot liberals , who seem to be in charge of everything, now decry integration and want us to accept that we shouldn’t expect the millions of invaders to adopt our culture , infact they ought not even be expected to make any concessions at all to the fact that they are living in our country. On the other hand we are expected to pay for the invaders and modify our culture in case it offends them. If we balk at that cultural suicide pact and refuse to cooperate in the suicide of our country we are deemed to be racists and the idiot liberals have passed laws which they use to persecute us.

          We don’t have long left. But we pass into history with the certain knowledge that the future will be much worse than the recent past. A new Dark Age ( no pun intended) is almost upon us.

Why she did it remains a great puzzle unless she wanted to destroy Europe as Blair did.

        Yep in a country that is 3% black that is the proportion we’d expect to see on TV
        and about 14% BAME total
        if the BBC was obeying its charter obligation to reflect the country.
        And we have to imagine that the BBC viewership is even less than that, cos maybe a lot of BAME families are watching specialist TV networks aimed at them, eg Nigerian channel, Urdu language channels, various Indian and Iranian channels etc.

          My point exactly Stew. And in conversations with others on this, I am certainly not alone.

          No family can be depicted as solely white in ads anymore, there has to be a parent (mainly Dad) of colour. Yet, how many ads are there of totally black /asian families ? – a hell of a lot.

          Even drawings/cartoons of people are black or brown, and the 56 million white people are being airbrushed to appease the few.

          Reading this, anyone would mistake me for a white supremacist, but nothing is further from the truth. This phenomena has been seeping through the advertising world for many years now, and has gained momentum since the BLM campaign. I’m certainly not against anyone getting work as a model or getting a job on the tele, regardless of their skin colour, but keeping it to the ratio of the country as a whole should keep everyone happy.

    Gilbert Murray, 62, and 26-year-old Gabriella Ditton, both from Norwich, admitted causing criminal damage
    Ditton also admitted causing criminal damage to a window in a Cambridge research building, run by oilfield service provider Schlumberger, the following day.
    Ditton, who said she earns £100 a month in animation and illustration, told the court: “We’re trying to prevent a horrible, horrible future that seems so insurmountable.”
    She was fined £120 for each offence and ordered to pay £50 towards prosecution costs and a £64 statutory surcharge.

    Back in the spring of this year, our PM said if there had not been a Brexit deal with the EU by the end of June, that would be the end of negotiations and we would leave on a WTO basis on 31 December. Then, the news was that David Frost, the UK lead negotiator would be talking with the EU during July.

    We are now past mid-August and apparently talks will continue or be re-started – again – in the second week in September.

    I see channel 5 is going to broadcast a piece about George V calling hin ‘The Tyrant King’ and no doubt the scum media will be doing another hatchet job on him. They suggest that the King vetoed an attempt to offer Tsar Nicholas asylum in Britain however there is little proof to this, the politicians of course would have had the last word which was this:

    “Growing labour unrest and the rise of socialism in Britain, were causing George V serious concerns. ”

    The evil and murderous ideology of socialism caused Britain to not offer asylum to the Tsar, and ideology we have fought for the best part of the last century, and which has been the single largest cause of death since recorded time.

    You can bet that won’t be broadcast, nor the cowardice of those who failed to assist someone and their family who were in genuine need of asylum.

    The BBC power base is world global socialism. We see it in the US media frenzy on contender Biden, who with failing health will give way to even more extreme marxist theories (and Marxist partners) on how to control the world. (Gordon Brown on steroids with Cannabis) There is no doubt that the BBC root for Biden in the same way as they did for Obama, Clinton (both of them) and any old US (or African) socialist as long as it has global reach endorsement claims (total failure as usual when applied).

    And you cannot get much more global that the United Nations. It sets all the Agendas on Population control and Climate, sponsored by a motley crew of third world ‘me-toos’ minor politicians that you have never heard of but control strategy which the left think is ‘leadership’ in times of Apocalypse. So serious is the end of the world, that we have to have equal rights for Abortion, LGBTTQZ (and you don’t want to ask what z stands for). One world socialism where everybody gets AAAA**** even though it obvious they never took the exam paper, nobody did.. Next year grade inflation will be even higher, as people of colour claim not only equal rights but also equal pay and free and drugs (thanks to the NHS) its an equal right. Its not UN but that is because the UK is a role model on handing out free money, hotel accommodation, education (not that they need any) they know what benefits are on offer before they even leave home. Un charities give them the full briefing on what to expect in the UK.
    .
    A better life working for the same global corporations that will pay the global minimum wage and claim we the (UK) providers are all racist, bigots and are responsible for their hardship. We the white people, with families, the ones who are the ‘problem’. Its a bias against them. So we need to be ‘educated’ to left wing ideology and give them everything that they lack. Communal ideals. Not charitable.

    Starting with Abortion – kill the children. Then LGTBQXYX (as the BBC claim over (over 150 sexes) them the nuclear family has to be ultimately destroyed. Along with all religions (except Islam) as its useful as its ‘communal’ and pliable to Marxism. Washinton Times on the latest UN proposal are a warning to us all.

    But UN Human Rights is effectively the same as Communism ‘communal rights’ in reality. (Equal means nothing if equal replaces known and trusted values with unknown mistrusted values). So we end up with absurd ‘positive discrimination’ based on whoever is claiming it to be – is then ‘political’ addressed as another (unequal right). No nation is equal, nor peoples or sexes. That is a basic fact of life. We may aspire culturally, financially and use intelligence. So its the white mans burden to unburden himself of his culture, wealth and intelligence. And be mono-cultural, an EU monoculture we voted to escape from. We may never escape ‘Climate’ myths and ‘Sustainability’ agenda until we have vacated the premises.

    UN plan a huge redistribution of wealth and intelligence. (not all intelligence is very intelligent) All we need to do is hand over everything to our new invader populations and by 2040. Everything is good. Climate controlled. Population controlled. Populism (read Democracy) contained and an end to all national patriots. Anybody calling themselves a US or UK patriot or having any family values would be a hate crime against LGTCMX values as redefined as ‘human rights’. They have them and you don’t. They have power, you don’t. They can reproduce as a ‘conservative’. You cannot prosper therefore – if you define yourself -as a ‘conservative’, in this new bureaucracy of entitlements a ‘right’ to everything is ‘nothing’ those that earned the resoect and privilege mean nothing, that right through hard work and local charity is all gone. Communal Rights is all you get. And you don’t have it, white man. Positive discrimination is as the BBC states, very important to how we see ourselves.

    An interesting video (linked from another on this site) sums up this UN inspired Marxism that our state broadcaster is heavily involved in. We can ignore the BBC in the UK, but for the rest of the world, they are leaders in misinformation. The Main stream media is heavily into UN goals. There is an Agenda, as none of the national media broadcasters are allowed to talk about it and Newspapers will never admit that it is an adopted practice never to mention it. Governments can never speak of it except in terms of ‘Climate’ and ‘Sustainability. Climate we know is manufactured (link Video to that is somewhere above this post). And then EU inspired ‘Sustainability’ is ‘Green culture’ linked to ‘Climate’ (again). The end result is rapid depopulation by 2040, they plan. (Agenda 21)

    The rise of the immigrants is our own local population ‘diverse’ replacement. To speak of it is – an automatic hate crime and yet alongside the rise in crime in London and across the EU where ‘diversity’ has taken hold is not good overall but negative.. The new land of opportunity is upon us. All we have to do is give up everything and admit we had it all wrong. And not have any children and admit that Marxism was right all along. The new World order is global marxism. Of course the BBC is involved in it. South Africa is our future and there is no future for us if we still take orders from the UN (which are often well hidden in legislation -particularly ‘education’ directives (from EU). Even when we leave the EU we still have the UN to deal with and we are a world leader in LGHTQMX nonsense. Its been sponsored by our own UK government for over 40 years and ruled on by the European Court of Human Rights! Leaving the EU was our first step to freedom, That is why the BBC are involved in reversing the ‘trend’ back to UN objectives of eventual annihilation. Banning all discussion and (eventually) an end to Science as we know it, our past, our culture and hopes of family values (conservative) will be a crime to discuss privately as its is publicly at the BBC or sister stations.

    Jordan Peterson and ex Australian PM talk discuss Cultural Marxism objectives…
    (video) July 2020

    
The Marxist have never been so strong. They have the full support of the UN. Nobody dare asks if its sustainable or that the Climate is not about to melt down globally. The BBC plays its part, they are a bit part player on the world stage.

      Agree. The only acceptable bias from the BRITISH (sic) Broadcasting Corp., is a natural (and preferably mildish) pro-British bias. That is, an Anglo-/Brito-centric world view and a generally benign attitude to Britain. The reason for this is simply that we in Britain are forced to pay for it and it still retains ‘British’ in its title; so, put simply, don’t insult your enforced customers and do do what it says on your label.

      This ideal BBC could strive for impartiality but it would probably fail to achieve it completely; people would understand that it would, by charter and origin, likely be biased in favour of Britain. The same applies for a French national broadcaster or a Russian or US one – no problem there. Viewers and listeners could seek out alternative viewpoints online or in print (e.g. The Guardian, New European or The i newspaper on the Left, or Fox, Sky Australia and others on the Right).

      If the BBC takes “British” out of its title, gives up the £157.50 poll tax and tolerates other terrestrial competitors in the UK, it can be as anti-British as it likes … and customers will decide whether to pay for it (I wouldn’t). What it can’t do is continue to be so hostile to the British people, and friendly to competitors and enemies such as the EU and UN, or inflict the cultural damage it does.

      This is no longer about bias. It’s about the very raison d’etre of the BBC, which has turned against the people who have to pay for it and has for many years been doing more harm than good.

    Further arrests in Rotherham child sex abuse inquiry
    Two men have been arrested as part of an investigation into the abuse of four girls in Rotherham.
    The alleged offences date back about 20 years to when the girls were aged between 13 and 15.
    National Crime Agency officers made the arrests as part of Operation Stovewood, which is investigating child sex abuse in the town.

    Two men, aged 35 and 40, were arrested in Rotherham and a third man, aged 35, was interviewed under caution
    This follows the arrest of 14 men in Rotherham and two in West Yorkshire during July and August as part of the same investigation.

    Can’t Afford to Tell the Truth Owen Bennett-Jones on the state of the BBC. Its a long read. But this BBC insider points out that the BBC is incapable of telling the truth. Its a staffing problem…

    ‘One managing director in Bush House admitted to me, without embarrassment, that he lacked the knowledge of foreign affairs to make the editorial decisions that came before him.

    And BBC managers are unsackable. In the recent judgment on the Cliff Richard case, besides criticising the rationale behind broadcasting the story in the first place (which, typically enough, was in part to avoid criticism for not broadcasting it), the judge found that the UK news editor was not a reliable witness and that the head of newsgathering had ‘almost wilfully’ failed to ‘acknowledge inconsistencies’ in the BBC case. Both still hold senior positions.’

    Are the usually uber-feminist beeb reporting the story of a 17-year-old girl in France who was beaten and had her hair shaved off by her parents for dating a Christian boy?

    No, I thought not. Guess what religion she is? Her family were originally from Bosnia-Herzegovina, which goes to show that the savagery of the Religion of Brutality knows no borders, and is not confined to the Middle-East, Asia and Africa.

    But I suppose it’s no surprise the beeb don’t report the story: small fry compared to the mass rape of hundreds (thousands?) of children on their own doorstep – which they ignored for years – not to mention the daily murder of infidels throughout the muslim world. (Since you ask, 863 killed and 776 injured in the last 30 days alone.)

    Just musing about where all the autocue readers in w1aa will finish up when the Biased BBC is defunded, and they all have to get ‘jobs’ elsewhere…

    I suppose some will ‘write’ stuff for the Guardian and the Staggers, one or two may turn up on Sky, or other failing news outlets, but the majority will have to look for work in much smaller organisations, like local rags etc!

    Local Radio just may be a lifesaver for some of them, but as that is so dire and dumbed down to idiot phone-ins and trashy ‘stories’, they may struggle at first, but at least a normal average salary will help them over their grief at being ignored by 99% of the country!

    I suppose sport will still be interesting to people who like watching empty stadiums, but there’ll be a watershed of grossly inflated wages paid to players, and most home-grown ones will get worried as all the foreigners seem to take their places, and live in their ‘Early Argos’ style houses.

    Of course, the Labour and Liberal parties will lose their media departments, and have to resort to local radio (again), and nobody will take any notice as above!

    I’m sure good people here will think of many other benefits, so, to save these arthritic digits, I’ll hand you over to Nick Robinson, the night-time ‘reporter’ on Radio Sheppey, followed by Emily Maitlis on ‘Those you have pearled’ – a programme about knitting twin-sets during the 1930s…

    TOADY Watch #1 – inadvertent slip or something more sinister?

    Professor Sir Mark Walport was on the programme this morning. He was interviewed by Sarah ‘Gravel’ Smith who made reference to the 1918 Influenza Pandemic. Sir Mark said Covid-19 was a coronavirus and – by implication from his words – influenza is not.

    I haven’t checked the Wiki page for influenza but I’m pretty certain that ‘flu’ is a coronavirus, the common cold is another one, ‘ chicken ‘flu’ ‘ and ‘ bird ‘flu’ ‘ are yet more.

    At the risk, of fuelling conspiracy theories, was Sir Mark saying Covid-19 is something very different to a proper coronavirus, ie. is a germ warfare agent? Or did he just got his facts wrong as a muddled, elderly Professor.

    ‘Gravel’ was not sharp enough – or knowledgeable enough – to pick the Prof up on that misspeak.

    First up we need to be investing more to provide oxygen for coronavirus treatment in…..errrrr……..the Democratic Republic of Congo.
    Apparently all those evil companies whose business relies on producing pure gases want to make profits !!!!!!!!

    Next up. On Thought for the Day, hankies are still needed for the Sudanese 16 year old man who died on a French beach.
    You see he was escaping from ….whatever it was and wherever it was……., and had managed to cross the Med to get to…….Italy.
    Is Italy war torn and ravaged? Judging by the number of UK holidaymakers on the Amalfi coast, Tuscany, or Venice, to name but three, I’d say no. The reasoning behind ‘fleeing’ Italy to get across Europe to the UK was, as usual, not explored.

    My hanky is as dry as a bone.
    And I’m not feeling guilty at all.
    So the Toady editors can go swim.

    TOADY Watch #2 – ah, some more news but no questions

    Where have the ‘enquiring minds’ gone at the BBC’s N&CA Dept? No one seems interested in finding out stuff unless it can be turned into accusing questions or Panodrama Programmes in order to attack a Conservative Government.

    Three weeks – give or take a day – since the Beirut docks explosion. The BBC, with a journalist resident in the city, only now seeks to tell us that there were large numbers of refugees from the Civil War in Syria – from Aleppo – living and working there. Syria adjoins Lebanon.

    Point one: the BBC do not realise that the Syrian refugees have actually been legal refugees, played by the rules and have sought sanctuary in the first ‘safe’ country they have reached. I use ‘safe’ as a relative term in relation to Lebanon.

    But then no-one at the BBC sought to enquire whether the supposed spontaneously combusting Ammonium Nitrate might not have been triggered (it needs a trigger to burn or explode) by other ‘dark forces’. The BBC missed a great opportunity to nail something on Vladimir Putin. I am surprised that they also missed an opportunity to further blacken the name of President Assad. The former certainly deserves it. The latter, probably not. Tell me, BBC, how did those democratic elections go in Syria? Oh, you – a premier news organisation – forgot all about that?

    The big question I have that the BBC should have asked is: was the explosion caused by traffickers? Was it a deliberate bombing attack on these people who were obviously intent on 1. being legal refugees, 2. possibly wanting to remain close to Syria in order to be able to return at the earliest opportunity when peace is restored, and, 3. were these Syrians supporters of President Assad and wanting democracy (albeit a Middle Eastern version) to continue in Syria.

    Woz it dem trafficking gangs wot dun it, BBC?

      I think the BBC News and Current Affairs dept much rather fancies going after some kid in a pub talking Very Far Right booze fueled rambling about n words and various acceptable criminals such as paki paedo gangs

      Rather than in depth investigation s such as the middle east or where overseas charity or taxes really go ..
      TR is obviously a now traditional target of course

        I thought the BBC had already established that the explosion was the fault of the UK as our sanctions had resulted in a cargo of Ammonium Nitrate being offloaded at Beirut?

        That and ‘some say’ it was an Israeli missile attack.

        When the ‘truth’ doesn’t match the ‘facts’ the ‘truth’ never gets revisited.

        Hi Fed, how’s the quarantine going?

        The BBC is a failing news organisation, Fran Unsworth appears to be raising the white flag on that. But you would think the journos and presenters would try to save their jobs by actually doing them for a change.

        You would think.

        But no. Not at the BBC.

        I now think the BBC is doomed.

    I caught a bit of Rise of the Continents on BBC 2 this morning. This programme first went out in 2013, which surprises me because if I didn’t check that I would have expected Africa to be splitting into pieces any time soon!

    It also had more evidence of the BBC believing its own false output. Long time viewers will remember the old BBC in between programme animation with a rotating globe, going the wrong way. They claimed at the time that it was for reasons of copyright.

    Perhaps that was true, perhaps it was a mistake, but what was the excuse for Rise of the Continents repeating the reverse rotation over and over?

    Why you can trust the BBC. Why?

    I would be grateful if someone could spend a bit of time and look at this and maybe comment on it.
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p08p83pb

    I haven’t had time to look through it (just note it) but I think it is part of something that I have seen being advocated and spread within universities – where academic positions and promotions are given to females or BAMES in order to make the staff more “representive” of the students. It is a form of backdoor “positive” discrimination.

    Bannon arrest
    Like the Trump dossier the case has deep history
    From the beginning 2+ years ago reporters accused them of stealing money from the fund
    But then lefty site Snopes did a report saying their was no evidence.
    So it became a thing they used to joke about in Bannon’s show last year.
    This article says at the top its paywalled but actually appears open

    https://talkingpointsmemo.com/prime/why-steve-bannon-and-brian-kolfage-joked-about-ripping-people-off-to-buy-a-boat-a-brief-history

    Bannon was on a Chinese billionaires yacht when he was arrested
    now he has $5m bail
    and says he’ll fight the case all the way.

        Does rather look like it, Stew. It gave the BBC the opportunity to link alleged criminal Bannon with President Trump even though Steve Bannon left the White House team, of his own volition, six months – was it? – after the inauguration.

        The BBC will assume the general public will not know or remember that. So the BBC can smear away at will and, needless to say, choose to do so.

        Someone on The Conservative Woman posted the above link and commented: The key point seems to be that donors were refunded by Go Fund Me unless they explicitly asked for their donations to be retained by the organisation subsequently set up by Bannon and others. If that’s true – and I think it probably is – the charges are surely bogus.

          Assuming the charges are indeed bogus, the legals would drag on until after the election, after which it won’t matter. Job done. Muck spread. And no one ever seems to pay a price for muck spreading.

          The American legal system does seem very open to political interference, though recent decisions here might indicate it’s just as bad, but perhaps more subtle.

      YouTube : Viva Frei the lawyers put out an analysis
      H says that scamming charities this way is so common, he’s inclined to believe that’s what happens .. he says evidence of that is the way Kolfage changed his communication to encrypted last Octor, and the way the charity orgs website says that Kolfage is now getting a salary .. and a way that some of the payments were made to Kolfage’s wife for media work.
      He said that the charity was started as a PR stunt, but money flowed in so fast that they suddenly found themselves sitting on $25m without a plan of how to spend it.
      (other youtube vids do show footage of the construction of the charities own border wall as agreed by a landowner, constantly followed by journalists saying, you don’t have planning permission, and them saying here’s the permits etc.)
      but he’ll have more on his Monday discussion with Barnes

      Commenters say “Wow so little effort to go after Clinton’s and Trudeau’s charities”
      i guess leaking on expenses is normal
      eg One day someone summits a legitimate claim for $200 for driver and assistance role
      and the next week their wife does that role, and they argue that that too means she should get the $200 and that the charity has not lost out.

      The original claims about money being used to buy a boat were easily proved false, cos the boat was bought BEFORE the charity existed.
      ==============

      Yesterday Viva did a summing up of Millie Weaver
      “looks like the criminal legal system is being weaponised against journalists”

    A piece that will show just how unjust matter have become. Dear Prime Minister
    I wish to ask you a Question:- “Is This True?”
    I refer to the Pension Reality Check.
    Are you aware of the following ?
    The British Government provides the following financial assistance:-
    BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER
    (bearing in mind they worked hard and paid their Income Tax and National
    Insurance contributions to the British Government all their working life)
    Weekly allowance: £106.00
    IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN
    (No Income Tax and National Insurance contribution whatsoever)
    Weekly allowance: £250.00
    BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER
    Weekly Spouse Allowance: £25.00
    ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN
    Weekly Spouse Allowance: £225.00
    BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER
    Additional Weekly Hardship Allowance: £0.00
    ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN
    Additional Weekly Hardship Allowance: £100.00
    A British old age pensioner is no less hard up than an illegal immigrant/refugee yet receives nothing
    BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER
    TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT: £6,000
    ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN
    TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT: £29,900
    After all, the average pensioner has paid taxes and contributed to the growth of this country for the last 40 to 60 years.
    Sad isn’t it? Surely it’s about time we put our own people first.

      To paraphrase, if parliamentary petitions changed anything, they’d ban them. They are just there to give the BBC something to wax lyrical about when a favoured petition gets hijacked.

    Not the BBC but it could be. Page 2 of the Jewish Chronicle is a large headline ‘Groups sign Facebook letter alongside backer of Tommy Robinson.’ Now I haven’t a clue about the politics but an American organisation, The Middle East Forum, which has apparently supported ‘the far right Tommy Robinson is urging Facebook to adopt the IHRA definition of antiSemitism’. BICOM and the Maccabi World Union have also signed and I thought it was the definition that Jewish people wanted (but I could be wrong as I am easily confused these days). The article continues in a was reminiscent of the BBC, it just had to give Tommy’s original name.

    The whole article was written as if anyone who had crossed a road at the same time as Tommy, ishould be eternally damned.

    To be fair, apparently MFE think tank had been heavily involved in a campaign to free Mr Robinson from prison. Well if they felt that Tommy was wronged why shouldn’t they campaign for his release and if they want to support others in the fight against antiSemitism, why not? Probably because MFE support right wing organisations and that makes them deserving of attack by MSM .

      The writer Lee Harpin has a fetish about TR
      and often inserts a TR angle into article
      He’s a globalist so that’s one reason he hates TR.
      The guilt by association idea is a fallacy
      You might as well say Poppy Day was also supported by The Yorkshire Ripper & try to argue that Poppy Day should be banned.

      Here Bryan points out that by Lee’s logic, if someone posts an anti-BBC comment in the Guardian comments, then that makes the Guardian an anti-BBC website.
