Start the Week 24 August 2020

The BBC is to broadcast a documentary about Carl Beech on Monday night . Mr Beech is the criminal who made False allegationS of a ‘ high Level paedophile ring “ which was so eagerly taken up by the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party – Tom Watson . Apparently the BBC didn’t mention Mr Watson’s shameful part in the debacle until those involved demanded the truth be included. The BBC does like to look after its friends …….

    Rule Britannia!
    What could be better for a first post ?

    Al Beeb has shot it self in the foot if it ends our second anthem at the Proms. This is their revenge for voting for Brexit and for voting in the Tory party.
    Their end is nigh.

      Another insidious technique is to mention the two parties in the order Labour first, then Conservatives.

      The same technique is used for the US election – Biden and Democrats first, then Trump and Republicans.

      It is truly naive to think that Russia will allow what was White Russia to fall under the influence of the EU and as for Nato forget it. Russia was attacked and ravaged by the French and then twice by Germany . The last time how many died?
      This is big boy’s politics not the emoting idiots of the liberal West.
      Russia is correct to ensure that there are buffer states on it’s borders. It is not our affair.

      • Doublethinker says:

        It depends on what Russia does to ensure that there are buffer states on its borders. Economic aid would be welcome acceptable to all. But military threats and interventions as in Ukraine a few years ago is not acceptable, not there is anything anyone can realistically do about it other than tut tut and impose sanctions. The domination of Eastern Europe and suppression of democracy for fifty years after WW2 was certainly not acceptable. Admittedly both Belorussia and Ukraine had been part of the Tsarist empire for centuries unlike Czechoslovakia, Hungary , Roumania etc but it still doesn’t justify Russia using military force to insist on having puppet governments installed. After all it’s not as though Russia is short of space to act as a military buffer if it is invaded, unlike say Israel who needed to occupy some strategically critical parts of neighbouring countries eg Golan Heights, to have chance of stopping an invasion from Syria et al.

          There has been a switch in policies between the West and the East in the later half of the 20th century. Russia and its Warsaw pact allies are now robustly capitalist. The West – “Democrat America” and the EU, are socialist.

          The EU and Democrat America would like to take their “new socialism” back to the USSR. Then along with China, its “Hello Global Socialist” world. A Marxist objective achieved.

          So you think that we should depose wee Nippy if that happened. You don’t see that as an act of war? Suppose that Brussels sends EU troops into Northern Ireland to protect the Republic? Surely that would be an act of war. Once you start condoning military action by one state in another sovereign state you are on a slippery slope.we can’t on the one hand claim every country has the right to defend its borders and on the other hand condone military action in another sovereign state’s land.

        Quite right that Russia wants buffer states. Without them, France then Germany, invaded Russia in an attempt to create Lebensraum. That led to 60 million dead, and American troops in Europe to prevent any further European “robust” foreign policy adventures. The same two states, but now the rulers of the EU, want to do something similar. Russia will not allow it. And America will not allow Russia first move to thwart EU misadventures.

        Note that Pres Trump is moving troops to Poland. Poland and Belgium are the nations first invaded in robust German policies. Belgium is already NATO HQ.

        We might have had a world war with Russia if Obama policies had continued with Clinton and Newland.

        Coincidence that Trumpian policy is thwarting any such moves.

            The main threat is supposed to be Russia. So the troop movement can be seen as one to stop Russia from taking advantage of the situation in Ukraine. But its good you brought up Germany.

            The EU is in turmoil, debt and millions of unskilled migrants pouring in.

            Britain leaving. EU counties looking to Germany =for money. Germany full of hostile aliens, and more pouring in. Germany is feeling the strain. Its a super[power in all but name and feels that like atlas, is it is bound. Its the same as in the thirties. Why does it refuse to pay NATO dues, and will not pay till 2031. Which is never. Germany has always surprised us.

            Then there is America. It too is in turmoil.

            China resurgent. So we have three nations that are powerful, and a score to settle with America

            1. China
            2. Russia – for losing to America
            3. Germany – for losing to America, and then being to obliged to America for its generosity.

            So yes, America has place itself in the cockpit.

            This presidential election will define the world for the next 50 years.

    I don’t really pay much attention to the BBC news these days. But listening to tonight’s bulletin on BBC1, I did catch an article on the forthcoming Republican convention.

    And I wondered if the equivalent bulletin last week sought out disaffected Democrats who weren’t going to vote for Trump. In the same way tonight’s bulletin spoke to those who weren’t going to vote for Trump.

    It’s just that what I did catch of last week’s coverage of the Democrat suggested it was wall-to-wall sycophancy about how marvellous that lovely Mr Biden was.

          With Democrats its ” No one is above the law” when it comes to allies of Pres Trump, but excuses and “nothing to see here” when it comes to an actual conspiracy and acts for coup against Pres Trump.

          If Pres Trump is re-elected, we will see the unwinding of this conspiracy. Gen Flynn’s lawyer has the bit between her teeth. Therefore Judge Sullivan cannot acquit Gen Flynn even though the prosecution has dropped all charges

    The BBC is not a news organisation. It is a 24 hours a day 7 days a week activist organisation. It has been pushing non-stop anti-Trump propaganda and tittle tattle for over four years now. It is blatant, childish and insulting to the intelligence.

    It has become clear that there is no saving the BBC. It must be defunded.

    This week saw the last of the current season of Radio 4’s Feedback in which, according to the BBC, the listener holds the BBC to account.

    In the past this meant half a dozen listeners complaining about a programme and then Roger Bolton reading out a statement that ‘the BBC got it about right’ or, if we were really lucky, a BBC producer would come on to tell us that she ‘had got it about right’.

    Clearly even that was too much for the BBC as this last programme consisted entirely of Controller of Radio 4, Mohit Bakaya telling us that he is getting it ‘about right’ with a few listeners voicing Bolton’s questions for him.

    The one exception was one female who told us how much she loved the smug Amol Rajan and his programme in which George Soros, the Pope and Lady ‘Spider’ Hale gave us their ideas for our future. (‘Some say’ that George Soros, the Pope and Lady Hale should be breaking rocks on Dartmoor for what they have done to our present and if Amol Rajan joined them it would be no bad thing).

          Let’s hope that the BBC bites the bullet and does indeed ban Rule Britannia , Land of Hope and Glory, Jerusalem and everything else that could be regarded as British and traditional. It might wake up a few hundred thousand more LF payers and make them realise that they are paying to see their country and culture trashed and destroyed and so hasten the demise of the foul corporation. Judging by the comments in the Times yesterday there certainly seems to be a very strong reaction against the BBC and it’s anti British plan with lots of folks vowing to refuse to pay the LF.

            If the BBC do carry through with that ban, would there be an orchestra – and a conductor – and a venue that would start hosting ‘The Alternative Prom’ ?

            You know, one where ordinary people and students can queue for a few hours and pay very little money, say £3 or £5, to listen to classical orchestral music by the greats, shout “Heave, ho!” when the lid of the grand piano is raised, and get a bit enthusiastic for the Last Night and mass singing of Land of Hope and Glory? After all, the BBC have championed alternative pop music festivals. Why can there not be a non-BBC alternative to The Proms?

            After all, the Kenwood Concert has spawned several replicas in its time.

    Tony Hall has done a test run of a speech he is to deliver to BBC Executives in the BBC House Magazine, The Guardian.

    BBC a bulwark against pandemic of fake news, Tony Hall to argue

    https://www.theguardian.com/media/2020/aug/23/bbc-a-bulwark-against-pandemic-of-fake-news-tony-hall-to-argue

    Describing two pandemics – one of coronavirus and the other of disinformation spread on social media – Tony Hall will highlight public service broadcasting (PSB) as “vital to democracy” and say its values “have never been more needed.”

    “The forces of disinformation and social media tend to feed on fracture and drive polarisation. They’re often specifically designed to exploit division for commercial or political gain; to unsettle societies or undermine democracy,” he will say.

    “What we do, as a PSB, is a force in the opposite direction.”

    Hall will cite an interview with a World Health Organization leader who addressed a recent seminar for PSB leaders in Europe: “Why you people are so important, he said, is because even if we have a vaccine tomorrow – up to 30% of people, according to polling, would not use it. There is, he said, another pandemic – that of misinformation.”

    I have obviously woken up in a parallel universe!

    The key thing that sticks out to me is the obviously cosy nature of the BBC’s relationship with that global dictatorship, the WHO which I regard as a Marxist organisation.

    There is also a distinct whiff of Soros in this too.

    He wants to double the ‘global reach ‘ to 1 billion a year because contact with the BBC makes people think more positively about Britain* ( that’s the point Fedup choked on his morning Tea),

    I suppose having lived in the world of other taxpayers money he has no thought for my 94 year old neighbour going out today to buy a TV licence with her only income – her state pension .

    Hall is replaced in a Month – so the finding of the consultation on decriminalising the TV licence will be published in a week or two me thinks .

    If the outcome is as trailed – it will give the BBC second thoughts about global effing reach .

    I switched on R4 at 7 a.m. to get the news and listened on beyond the bulletin. The first post-7 a.m. item was about the return to school and an interview with two Head Teachers, one female, the other male. The BBC in its current permanent state of misandry, likes to promote women and denigrate men.

    Interestingly, of the two Heads, the male was competent and confident about re-opening his school, whereas the female was uncertain and wanting more guidance from Government.

    TOADY Watch #3 – is the wrong answer

    In preparation for his hectoring of Nick Gibb, the Schools Minister, JustRemainIn Webb did a quick ‘Vox Pop’ with a couple of young pupils, one girl, I think in Primary education and an older boy who was obviously in Secondary education. JustRemainIn trialled his ‘You must have concerns’ questions in order to have ammunition to execute Nick Gibb. Unfortunately, when asked if he thought his school’s preparation had been adequate, the boy said “Yes.” and when asked if he had concerns about returning to school he said “No.”.

    Ding! Wrong.

    Not the answer JustRemainIn was searching for. Oh dear!

    Drat. It’s full. In fact it’s full for weeks on end. That seems strange. Maybe the BBC could enquire, you know, since they are so keen on investigating living conditions.
    But then again, maybe not.

    No doubt the residents are sending videos to their friends and relatives far away and telling them to get across just as soon as they can. As a commercial for illegal immigration and boat trips across the channel you must admit it’s hard to beat.

    During the night Taffman mentioned Trump using the words plasma” breakthrough”
    #1 My local BBC 8am news did mention it
    #2 They didn’t explain that “breakthrough” is not the correct word
    .. collection of antibodies from recovered people and injection into patients is a standard technique and was always expected to be done for Covid
    However it has not been massively practiced probably cos any intervention has risks like you don’t want to infect the patient with HIV etc. that the donor might have
    The achievement is getting though the regulatory approval steps to offer it as a treatment outside of experiment.
    Here is the President’s own words.

    On the therapeutics front, this is what I’ve been looking to do for a long time. This is a great thing. Today, I’m pleased to make a truly historic announcement in our battle against the China virus that will save countless lives. The FDA has issued an emergency use authorization — and that’s such a powerful term: emergency use authorization — for a treatment known as convalescent plasma. This is a powerful therapy that transfuses very, very strong antibodies from the blood of recovered patients to help treat patients battling a current infection. It’s had an incredible rate of success.

    Today’s action will dramatically expand access to this treatment. And I want to thank Dr. Hahn and Secretary Azar. I want to thank the FDA — all of the people that have been working very hard on this. It showed tremendous potential.

    This is the only possible — and it’s only made possible because of Operation Warp Speed that has everybody working together. We’re years ahead of approvals. We would be — if we went by the speed levels of past administration, we’d be two years, three years behind where we are today, and that includes in vaccines that you’ll be hearing about very soon, very shortly.

      Scanning tweets it seems it is useful but not a miracle cure
      In February you get 100 serious patients coming in with Covid say 20 walk out
      In August you get 100 serious patients coming in with Covid say 50 walk out ..ie 30 extra lives saved for a few weeks at least
      but how many of those lives are due to plasma treatment and how much is due to other interventions ?
      Some of the 100 will never get plasma cos Covid often gives people blood clots which makes this intervention difficult
      Some treated with plasma will still die .
      Sometimes people will die after plasma treatment, who wouldn’t have died without it.
      If it has been FDA approved for general use that means it is on balance doing more good than harm, not that it is a miracle cure.

          Large organisations are often internally disconnected so the part that places the advertising has no connection with the part that is concerned with sales.

          Add to that corrupt ways of doing things, don’t commission adverts directly but do it through an agency. The company staff gets lots of goodies like ‘business lunches’ and the agencies get money from the client and the advertising company.

          The advertising company doesn’t work for the company but its agent so is disconected from the sales of the product. It does however care about its reputation within the industry so is more bothered by the awards that it picks up from its peers.

          That is why adverts of horses jumping about in the surf win awards yet the public has no idea what the product was.

          The accountants will never make the connection with the adverts because a) people always have to eat and b) if the ‘white’ consumer is put off then sales across the sector will fall but it will be put down to the ‘economic climate’ because all the competitors are just as ‘woke’.

          And the agencies get their fee and the production company gets their fee and so it continues.

        Just like the fact that the BBC is stuffed full of uni sociology lefty types and think they represent the entire country, the advertising industry is stuffed full of arty uni lefties who think exactly the same way. Both having been indoctrinated by bitter lefty uni lecturers.

        The Country is crying out for a truly representative media that reflects the real Country we live in and it’s people and not just the warped imaginings of these people.

        When we have national broadcasters who act politically and advertising executives who do the same it’s long past time for a reckoning.

        I believe if a movement could be formed to bring together all the people subjected to this torrent of abuse, an organisation that would be able to marshall the blacklisting of their output or their clients products by voting with their wallets it might return some to their senses. The list of targets for this is both well-known and growing as nervous Company bosses give way to the intimidation to force them to bow down to the mantra.

        The point being that both these media types are being manipulated by forces that want extreme and radical political change, not sales success. Wake up industry or you will be taken down either way as Goodyear and Ben & Jerrys are now finding out.

    You’d have no idea from the BBC report that Jacob Blake, ‘Blackman shot by police’, was resisting arrest….arrest for an outstanding warrant for sexual assault and domestic abuse. The BBC makes it seem that the police shot a completely innocent man who was merely walking to his car.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-53886070

    The reality is that he refused to stop even as police called for him to do so and were pointing their weapons at him…..why might they do that? What did he have in his car? Police would automatically think it was a gun…..especially as in 2015 he pulled a gun in a bar and resisted arrest then too…only being stopped by a police dog.

    ‘Racine police say K9 Dozer had to help officers take a man into custody when the man refused to go quietly into custody after he pulled a gun at a local bar.
    Jacob Blake, 24, of Racine, was charged Monday in Racine County Circuit Court with one felony count of Jacob Blake resisting arrest causing a soft tissue injury to a police officer and one misdemeanor count each of carrying a concealed weapon, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, endangering safety-use of a dangerous weapon, and disorderly conduct. If convicted, he will face up to 8-1/2 years in prison and/or up to $50,000 in fines.

    According to the criminal complaint, Blake and two women were at the Brass Monkey tavern, 1436 Junction Avenue, Saturday when Blake got into an argument with another patron and pulled a black handgun. Blake pointed the gun at the other man, and the magazine fell to the floor. The bartender told Blake to leave, and he did but then pointed the gun through the window at patrons inside the bar before walking south on Junction Avenue.’

    2020 charged with sexual assault and domestic abuse….

    Would you shoot someone even before they’d actually pulled out a weapon? What the BBC et al don’t understand, don’t want to understand, is that even a man with his hands in the air can reach down and pull out a pistol and shoot a police officer who is already pointing his own weapon at him…yep he’ll get shot but it’s highly likely, and possible[it’s happened], that the police officer will get shot as well…why take that risk especially when someone is clearly, for some reason, determined not to stop?

      The BBC uses the frequent police killings to keep the pot simmering here . I’ve said before – the BBC is desperate – desperate for a white policeman to kill a coloured here – preferably by shooting but I’m sure a cell death will do .

      Then it’s over to the ‘Race Industry ‘ to our ‘race ‘ each other on all those current affair shows . Then the full ‘downtrodden coloured ‘ narrative can be fired up …. inquiry … justice …. Lammy … dawn butler …. the ash cretin …. alibi …. and all those new names desperate to get things fired up .

      Coloured killing and stabbing other coloured like animals will not get a mention . Meanwhile the few still speaking out – like good old Norman Brennan – the retired copper will occasionally be wheeled on to be shouted down …

        Fed – R4 at 5pm were certainly very excited, leading with the shooting of an ‘unarmed’ man who was ‘getting into his car’.
        “What source are you using?” the interviewee had to ask, when the beeb reeled off another tall propaganda tale as their lead item.
        You sense that R4 are hoping for another George Floyd incident. November is drawing close in the US, and -for some obscure reason- beeb feels it has to ramp up anti-Trump sentiment here in the UK.
        Certainly, the enthusiasm for Biden stuck out in the news. As far as exploiting the race issue, R4 are certainly unscrupulous. Only an organisation force feeding itself on licence fee payer’s cash could afford to go out on a limb, like that.

          When in fact I’m sure the vast majority of ordinary Americans – such as the ones who don’t have passports – get enough news from domestic sources without looking to a lefty European one which happens to use the same language .

            Zurcher must have complained that his article ‘DNC 2020: Did Joe Biden succeed in making his case?’ didn’t receive the BBC News website extravaganza treatment that Jon Sopel’s did. He now too has an elaborate article ‘Joe Biden – This time the Oval Office?’ Again the headline is framed as a question, but the bias is quite clear. ‘Joe Biden – This time the Oval Office.’

            If I were Biden I should be seriously worried about the BBC’s support. They are using the same photo imagery techniques as they did for Corbyn in 2019 – showing Biden smiling, relaxed against a bright background, whilst juxtaposing an image from Sopel’s piece of an unsmiling Donald Trump against a black background (subliminally to indicate isolation and gloom). H/t Trump along these lines: “I hope Sopel and Zurcher both enjoyed THEIR DNC 2020 last week.”

            It’s the BBC’s ‘Operation Clarke County’ (ironically inspired by a failed Newsnight editor).

      Pug,
      Just going off at a tangent, most criminals in the US know that with a standard 9mm police round it might not bring him/her/it down. It is regularly rated as underpowered as a weapon. We saw another interesting video a day or so ago where the perp came at a female police officer brandishing two knives and refusing to stop. Maybe some rounds missed at about 20 yards(!?) in all the excitement and adrenaline (or perhaps drugs) but nevertheless, it was only part way through the second mag that the perp dropped – permanently. The moral is, people should not watch too many films!

    Has anyone else noticed the appearance of the prefix “self…..” popping up in the media recently?

    I first really noticed it when I heard a lady BBC roving reporter state that a swimmer in difficulty managed to “self-rescue” the latest today is from a Guardian lady reporter who having realised she had lost her passport on a station managed to “self-soothe”. My gut feeling is that this is derived from the adoption of the use of “self-identify” (as in a persons adopted sexuality) and is thus possibly being appropriated to normalise it’s use.

    Another word cropping up is “transition”, things don’t change any more they “transition”. Even the Government has used it in a public message to do with Covid, we are now apparently waiting to “transition” out of the epidemic. Again the derivative of this harks back to a minority attitude to fluid sexuality.

    Is it just coincidence or are there specialist back-room departments out their suggesting to the media how word formations like this can be injected into normal speech patterns to help blur the lines and create an atmosphere of acceptability and normality?

    Someone once said “A thing said often enough becomes the truth” or something along those lines!

    Along similar lines I am now noticing incoming corporate emails where the sender is prefixing a strange salutation label in front of their name, the most recent being “Him/He” Joe Bloggs of Big Corp etc. (alongside a photo of a bloke in a suit!)

    Where TF is this cruddy stomach-turning stuff coming from and why does it need to be there if not propaganda?

    How many of you readers and posters are snowflakes and are still paying the Telly Tax? I stopped my payments long ago.
    Teach them a lesson – don’t mess with our nation’s heritage.

    The BBC is apparently a self-described ‘movement’ campaigning for BLM….

    Lawrence Fox….The BBC is full of hyper racist, anti-white, people who hate our country…

    Douglas Murray….The narrative spread by the likes of the BBC about racism is dishonest and malevolent….unbelievably divisive and dangerous….

    It can’t end well as the BBC fuels racism and conflict demonising white people, their history and culture…..Quite easily see major unrest on the streets coming down the road as Whites get fed up with having their country destroyed and their people vilified.

    So National Trust what is your job
    #1 To preserve England’s heritage sites and facilitate access
    or #2 To disproportionately keep working to virtue signal to selected SpecialVictimhood groups ?

      Libmob think they have control
      but sensible people are saying
      ‘It’s strange you are being so selective and only talking about 17th British slavery against blacks and not about other topics
      #1 Britain leading the world in abolition
      #2 Other slavers like the Barbary Pirates
      etc.”

      Libmob are shouting back stuff like
      “How utterly stupid
      … The National Trust is an ENGLISH HERITAGE organisation
      so why would they talk about the Barbary slave trade ”

      good reply
      “The National Trust own Lundy.
      Lundy was occupied by Barbary pirates who captured ships and sent slaves back to Africa.”

        Twitter trickery
        as I went through the threads that mentioned Barbary pirates I kept seeing the same weird thing Twitter was hiding replies
        The search would show that a tweet has 1-reply but when you open up that tweet ..the reply wasn’t there
        Now by some specific searching I could force Twitter to show me the tweet
        but that hiding shouldn’t happen it should be in the thread straight away.

          They’ve been doing that for over a year – the US Navy’s role / success in putting the Barbary pirates down also doesn’t show up as much as you’d think it might……..

      Thanks for your message, Adam. as a conservation organisation we believe the physical legacies of our collective histories, including buildings and objects, can serve society by giving evidence and helping us learn and understand the past.
      They can often… (1/2)
      … bring us face to face with painful and shameful periods in our history, and cause real distress, especially when they aren’t managed sensitively. Destruction can remove the opportunity to understand what’s gone before, now and for future generations. (2/2)

      National Trust claim they are only educating people, not changing history.
      Back in June they did make changes.

    Another funny thing about Covid-19 ….

    ……. we are told by the BBC and others that at present it is spreading most in the US and UK among ‘young people’ but we are also told by the BBC and others that it is safe for children to go back to school.
