Start the Week 31 August 2020

The eve of the Tim Davie era . Will Mr Davie be the last chairman of the failing Far Left BBC in its current Marxist campaigning form ? Lets hope so. Apparently his first speech will be on Thursday when he will talk about ‘impartiality ‘ and keep a straight face – which is why he is paid the big bucks .
Meanwhile there are plans afoot to have a new British Broadcaster …

    5:30 and not a troll about .
    Two people arrested for terrorism ? Perhaps Al Beeb will catch up when their news researchers read it here?

    Anyway, I understand that a one man radio show gets more listeners than Al Beeb . His name is Alex Belfield and he operates from his kitchen! It must be very embarrassing for them?

      Morning Taff!

      Alex Belfield is required listening these days. The BBBC have to listen to him, as he’s ‘competition’, which is gratifying!

      R 5 Dead had someone called Julia Somebody from ‘The Hill’, in Washington DC, giving her enormous wisdom on Hate President Trump for ten minutes or so last night. He’s possibly going to Wisconsin, where the Democrats don’t want him, because he’ll get back a lot of votes from them!

      I’d say that President Trump has every right to help people against a background of unjustified rioting and looting.

      (But then I’m not a journalist who operates in the Democrat’s dribbling bubble of envy)!

        I m trying to figure out how the BBC will treat the debateless US election . Will it follow the compliant liberal MSM or actually speculate on the health of Mr Biden ?

        Maybe mr Trump will ‘ empty podium ‘ mr Biden … but there again the networks would ignore that too .

          A few days before the American Presidential Elections, Fed, will be the signalling of the end to furlough, and also mortgage ‘holidays’, which all expire at the end of October.

          There will be enough to fill millions of column inches on that particular subject, sadly for many, but hopefully a good sign that civil servants and local authorities will get their staff back to work at their desks. Most private tax/earners have been working solidly anyway!

          I’ll be watching TV on the 3rd November, and while the issue is pretty tight, I hope to be going to bed at some ungodly hour, after several malts, and looking forward to waking up to a new President Trump four year session in The White House!

          Belfield had a caller last night who said he came legally from Sudan in 1993
          and says people often stick the “Uncle Tom” label on him
          which is super racist
          And that he believes Channel immigration has to stop

            Stew, I thought the real Uncle Tom was a person of character. Harriet Beecher Stowe who wrote the book ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’ was an abolitionist* and came from a family of abolitionists. The BAME community use the phrase ‘Uncle Tom’ as an insult in the same way that they use the word ‘Coconut’. Something that Trevor Phillips had to suffer as the first Chair of what was then the Race Relations Council.

            Nasty people, those Marxists.

            * abolitionist (for those who don’t know – ie. not our Stew) was someone who campaigned for an end to Slavery in 18th & 19th centuries in UK and USA.

    On Toady, they cover the story of a TUI flight back to Cardiff which has led to Coronavirus infections.

    JustRemainin interviews a lady from Public Health Wales. She goes, not entirely convincingly, on about various aspects of Coronavirus including Test and Trace.

    But here’s the thing. At no point did JustRemainin use the situation as an excuse to criticise the Welsh Labour government. Remember that health is a devolved matter.

    Can you imagine in your wildest dreams the BBC adopting that approach if the flight in question had landed in England?
    No. If it was England, the BBC would dredge up a long list of on-board activities that Boris should be personally supervising, and the whole thing would be the government’s fault.

    You know it. I know it.

      It seems to have gone unnoticed yesterday that 1 (one) person in the UK died with Covid.
      That’s a 1 in 70,000,000 chance of dying with Covid.
      So bad that you need a test to see if you have it.

      Now would be a good time to get it.

      When we get the daily tested positive numbers I would like to know how many tests were taken.
      99 positive tests in 100 is very bad.
      999 positive tests in 200,000 (or whatever the daily number is now) is no big deal, especially as the virus appears to be so weak now.

    These were the main stories yesterday on the BBC news channel for children:
    2020-08-30-2223-cbbc-newsround.jpg

    1) Announcement of a massive expansion of “news” content and delivery to British kids across social media platforms including a new youtube channel. The new era of 24 hours a day 7 days a week propaganda directed at children begins Tuesday. One thing you won’t find is a straight able bodied white male presenter.
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/53934123

    2) Another attack on the oil industry: death of dolphins & other wildlife, climate change, importance of protesting before it is too late & the planet is destroyed.

    3) More Black Lives Matter propaganda: attack on the police, attack on Donald Trump, the importance of marching for change against a racist Western culture.

    4) The outpouring of emotion & grief following the death of a heroic black actor: a symbol of black power & the struggle for equality.

    5) Continued promotion of womens sport: the ongoing struggle for social justice & equality for women in a sexist (white) male dominated culture …

        2) Increasing output across other social media platforms, including apps on childrens mobile phones.
        3) Producing “education” material for schools.
        4) Having representatives going to schools.
        5) Embedding the woke agenda into all CBBC output including kids television, competitions, quizzes and games.
        6) Promoting various activist groups, and providing links to activist websites.

      If Certainly the President is gaining on Biden in the polls and has momentum from the riots and economic recovery after Covid. Biden still leads by between 5 and 7% , although it is tighter in swing states. But there is also the ‘shy Trump voter’ syndrome to take into account which is estimated at between 2 and 4% . So the Biden lead may only be between 1% and 5% with a margin of error of 2%. So it’s all to play for with 9 weeks left. If the riots continue , the economy keeps recovering and , as everyone expects , Trump trounces Biden in any debates , your money looks to be well placed.

      Of course all of the above assumes that the polls are honest and accurate, which may well not be the case.

    Public transport supporting BBC clearly delighted by the latest ridiculous government woke wheeze to criminalise parking on pavements outside London.

    The absolutely pathetic justification for this is to help blind people.

    How many blind people have you seen in your whole life struggling along the pavement because of a parked car?
    I’m guessing between zero and low single figures.
    How many people live on housing estates where, due to Prescott’s high density housing plans of the the 90s there are nowhere near enough car spaces and the roads are stupidly narrow? Millions. The imbalance is clear. A classic example of political correctness gone mad.

    I do not condone pavement blocking but 90% of the time pavement parking is actually being considerate and safe. In our road pavement parking keeps the road wide enough for 2 way traffic and as the pavement is over 6 feet wide thereis still plenty of room left.

    So what we have here is yet another War on the Motorist policy, along with all the road closures ‘to facilitate cycle and pedestrian use during lockdown’ and sudden closure of lNes on double carriageways and conversion to bus only (forgetting we have been advised not to use them for the last several months unless absolutely necessary).

    I’m pretty hacked off that the government have fallen hook, line, and sinker for this collectivist, anti-individual, eco Nazi, ER agenda.

    Harrabin must be in heaven.

        I’m sure the non-drivers will be thrilled to know the bus they used to catch will no longer be coming anywhere near them since it can no longer get down the roads because of cars parked either side. On the plus side, the extra mile walk to the nearest bus stop in the wind and rain will keep them healthy and happy. No doubt drivers will be told to sell their cars to make room for the buses.

          You can’t. In many towns and cities white indigenous English are already the minority and with increasing immigration and high birth rates this will rapidly accelerate. It is too late. What is needed is honest talk but that is not allowed in todays woke cancel culture.

          In some areas of England, English is hardly spoken – you hear either Eastern European languages or Urdu or some other Asian or African language being spoken.

          I started speaking to a guy out walking his dog in the park who happened to be Vietnamese and had been in England for over 20 years. He said he didn’t understand why there were all these protests in England. He said when you come to England everything is more or less provided to you free of charge, a health service, translators, support, accommodation. He said if you go to Spain you have to pay for all of that.

    ‘Rush for vaccine could make pandemic worse’
    ‘Floyd-style killing could happen in UK’

    Ah, the virtual world of the bien-pensant classes – very close now to the rude awakening with a jolt, but still grabbing a few more virtual minutes under the duvet. The Times has ‘Reluctant office staff defy the call to commute. Back to work push by ministers failing’

    Shhhh, can you hear that approaching rumble…?

    In the ‘i’ we have ‘Tax raid plan to pay Covid costs sparks backlash’

    And in the FT there’s double trouble on the horizon ‘Downturn, downturn, commercial property crisis ripples through debt markets’ Sound eerily familiar?

    The Telegraph reports ‘Head teachers refusing to fully open schools’.

    Can’t resist a really old gag here: “But, mum, I don’t want to go to school, I hate the school, I hate all the kids and I hate all the teachers”. “But, son, you have to go to school, you’re the headmaster!”

    No time for jokes in the Daily Star, it’s apocalypse now (as usual) and we do so love the smell of weather doom at dawn ‘Worst for 50 years, colder than Christmas, Brits chill out as Polar Plunge hits bank hol’

    Fear not, all bases are covered as the Mirror claims ‘Heatwave after chill’

    Whaddya reckon, Freddie? ‘A little high, little low, Anyway the wind blows, doesn’t really matter to me, to me!’

    Capita – widely known as Crapita and one of Britain’s most hated companies – is to close a third of its offices, the BBC understands. This article explains how Capita is ‘a major government contractor’ and that it ‘manages London’s congestion charge’. Hmm, now what else does it do, I’m sure I’ve heard of it in some other context? Ah yes, it runs a scam on behalf of the BBC called ‘TV Licencing’ for a cool £58m a year. Recently it has been appointed to try and squeeze licence money from the over-75s so that the BBC can spend another £100m promoting the sickness of diversity. Funny how the BBC omits to mention its relationship with Capita in the article. Not.

    As mentioned in the Sunday Telegraph, the new BBC’s Director-General – set to start work on the 1st September – has received a blunt letter signed by 14 new Tory MPs, accusing the BBC of “Fundamentally Failing… to ensure that the diverse perspectives and interests of the public and audiences… are taken into account”. Correctly going onto observe, “because of these and others… an increasing number of ordinary citizens no longer wish to fund the BBC nor watch it…

    The sad thing is that if the new DG succeeds in turning the BBC into an impartial broadcaster (which is highly unlikely) the calls to end the iniquitous TV tax will diminish.

    It isn’t just the bias of the BBC which should spell the end of its ‘unique funding’ model, it is the funding model itself.

    The BBC still pumping out a toxic and dangerous narrative about ‘racist’ Britain and white people.

    This week I heard about ‘Britain’s controversial history’…in what way is it controversial? It’s history and the events occured in very different times and looking back at it through a very narrow Far-Left lens [and it is Far-Left….most of the narrtaives on the BBC are derived from Marxist thinking] that interprets it using their modern values and beliefs is hugely dishonest and misleading….especially when we are fed deliberate lies…such as British or Western museums were set up to show our cultural superiority over ‘the natives’. Really? Thought they were educational and brought the world to Britain teaching us about different cultures and civilisations. How can exposing people to the Egyptians, Greeks or Romans, Chinese, Indian, Aztecs or Persians etc be teaching them ‘superiority’ when clearly these civilisations were well advanced from our own and we openly acknowledge we built on their knowledge to create our society?

    Today we have this distortion of history…and highly, er controversial… as it uses emotive and jaundiced language such as ‘stolen’….note also the opening anti-Trump reference….

    ‘Joe Queenan is setting out in an inflatable canoe. He’s heading down the steamy Mississippi River, looking for the adventurers who built the United States.

    “That my country should presently be helmed by a rapacious real estate developer,” Queenan says, “should come as no surprise to anyone who has studied the early years of the nation. Back then, people just showed up from Europe and stole land. The Dutch stole Manhattan, the Spanish stole Florida, the French stole Louisiana, and the English stole everything.”’
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000m56x

    The BBC is very particular about what words and terms it uses to describe certain people and groups…quite happy to use language to vilify and demonise white people but call a Muslim terrorist a ‘terrorist’? Or how about those ‘undocumented migrants’? ‘Illegal immigrants’ some might say. How is it that Mexicans flooding into the US in their millions are undocumented migrants but Jews settling in Palestine [usually on land they have bought] are ‘illegal occupiers’?

    Why are those South Americans not ‘stealing’ US land? Why are Black and Asian migrants to Britain not ‘stealing’ Britain as they try to either Islamise it or turn it into a Black colony with Whites grovelling for forgiveness and having to atone for their whiteness?

    Let’s use the same language to describe immigration to Britain…Britain is being stolen…..its land and its culture, history and identity.

      “Britain is being stolen”

      Indeed the bBC’s allocated role is to advertise to the world continuously across all its platforms that the UK belongs to everyone and anyone – preferably Muslims – who can set foot here by whatever means. How far the UK is initially ghettoised is of little consequence in the great ‘Global Reset’.

      The overriding theme of course is that there are no such things as indigenous European populations, nations or cultures, and it seems to me that this applies especially to the English – at least as far as the bBC are concerned. Hence the re-writing of our history not just by the bBC but by all participating (infiltrated) institutions and organisations.

        ‘Britain is being stolen’

        Sorry Pug, I have to disagree with you there, I’d say ‘Britain HAS been stolen’, and from right under our noses too, a lot of what is happening now, really began, what 20, or 25 years ago? Now it’s too late to turn back the clock.

        One aspect I find fascinating is ‘white flight’, living here in the West Country it is particularly apparent. Don’t hear many local accents around here these days, but plenty of what I’d call London and Home Counties. Lots of building too, houses locals can’t afford to buy, not a lot of green space left in some places. If you ask why they’ve decided to move here, it’s not the ‘countryside’ drawing them in, it’s the ‘black tide’ driving them out.

        Many locals I grew up with have already moved west to Devon, Cornwall, Wales… they say the locals there aren’t always keen on them moving in, which has a certain irony to it, but it isn’t enough to stop people moving there en masse. I’m not sure if I’m willing to wait the full term to retirement to join them, by then there won’t be much of the local area I recognise any more. Need to see my kids through school first though.

        And so, as the invasion progresses, each tribe moves on and displaces another further west, until there is no where left to run.

        The Romano-British fled the Angles and Saxons in the same way, and along the same routes, following the fall of Rome. As they say, history repeats itself, over and over.

    All his ‘experts were Remain…incluidng of course Katya Adler who told us we were all going to starve, there’d be no goods on the shelves and Kent would be turned into a lorry park….and peaace in Northern Ireland would end.

    Aaronovitch concluded with his own very subjective views about what might happen….we will get a very thin deal with the EU which we will trumpet as a triumph and a frantic hyping of deals with other countries selling a lie that this is a success for Brexit.

        Boris is actually a bit of a greeny, his missus is climate mad as is Dominic Cummings….the lockdown is being used to slip in a radical climate change policy under our noses….hence they want to keep up the scare-mongering and keep the lockdowns going…and the BBC loves it….you won’t ever hear any criticism of the lockdown….such as it was originally only imposed to ‘protect the NHS’ and stop it getting overwhelmed by patients…..as that protection is well established now why the lockdown? We have massive over-capacity in our hospitals right now….and so many of those people now being diagnosed wth covid19 will in fact be in no danger of death in the slightest and will probably suffer very minor, if any, symptoms….so why the terror?

          There are, of course, genuine conservative MPs still in the party, but Boris has made sure they don’t occupy any ministerial positions.
          Sunak the Socialist (spend, spend, spend) has now discovered that you have to pay all that back. One of three favourite targets are pensioners (there was a manifesto promise, but WHO really believes promises mean anything?) Well, what a surprise!
          Having said all that, many Tory MPs would be quite happy in the Labour Party. Must be what they call ‘transferable’ skills.
          The only politician I would trust to act in British interests is Nigel Farage. No parliamentary seat for him and as for a party, where is he? The wilderness?
          Has a lot of support among the ‘common man’, but the fact that this species is not even represented in parliament, speaks volumes for the health of our political system.

        What’s the point of a UK-EU trade deal, if only the EU benefits?

        Our response to the EU is simple. No compromise. We would tell the EU27 politely: “Do a normal free trade deal now or we will hold you as acting in bad faith. The evidence for this is now unequivocal and overwhelming. As a result we will be legally entitled to repudiate the Withdrawal Agreement. No massive divorce bill. No nothing. Trade with us on WTO terms by all means, if you want to try to keep the €100bn+ trade surpluses you’ve been running with us each year.”

        Our message to Prime Minister Johnson is equally simple : “Announce immediate and full-scale preparations for a WTO-terms exit. Publicise these daily, just like you did with the Coronavirus. And make sure Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron know that you mean business. Announce that you will also be repudiating the Withdrawal Agreement.”

    Not coincidentally, on Friday, I wrote and have posted a letter to my MP asking once again about their plans for vaccination. I also included an extract from the Nuremberg Code, which in my layman’s view would make use of forced vaccination open to legal action.

Really?

    A Gromit-style paw in the ear with a moment of vigorous rotation required there!

    Needed to remind myself of the dates and checked via a slow internet. Will have to listen again to check whether the Beeb really did make that massive blooper. For those interested: ECW 1642-1651. HVIII 1491-1547.

    What was also interesting was the hint of an aroma arising from this particular Book of the Week at the start of its run.

    It seemed to this listener to be anti-Reformation on the one hand but anti-cancel culture, book burning and wokism on the other. Vaairrry interesting!

      … we’ve currently got nine weeks to go to see which of the two old white men, both with accusations of impropriety, both running on a campaign of identity politics, gets to live in the white house next year …

      In my opinion this is faulty in the way it lumps both candidates together as being the same or very similar. It also uses classic feminist rhetoric as in “two old white men” which derides them for being white, male & old.

        If it’s any consolation I’ll still be casting a vote for Trump in November

        But I do I think they are more similar than either side lets on and most accusations against one can be made of the other. The real power lies not with the president but who his (unelected) advisors and that is the open secret that neither side lets on. The best thing Trump has done is enable the senate to place the courts (especially the Supreme Court) in conservative hands for the next decade, thus preventing most of the progressive agenda from ever being implementable. But I doubt he had much involvement in those picks.

        From an ‘old white’ perspective I just found it hilarious that the left expressly went down that route after calling republicans old and white for eyars but then not choosing a candidate from the dozens that were female, gay or from a minority.

        They’re all at it. Making money. But some seek to continually cultivate a topic day and night and ignore the bigger background picture in their efforts to perpetuate their money machine. This exchange between Talk Radio and BO’N, is simply just that. All this on-line, on-air debate could be condensed by simply stating that the Marxists, behind all this nonsense, simply want to keep the population on edge, confused and lacking any stability but miss-trusting the State, Government, police and all the rest in their overriding objective to de-stabilise the West. The Marxists call it, ‘Critical Theory’. The commies have been applying it for decades, bit by bit but DJTrump has now prompted their fury and so we see the Marxists headlong and now frenzied efforts to draw the West to a close now. The likes of this woman and BO’N are contributing to the end in their own sweet innocent ways. Stirring the pot.

        A better explanation of what’s going on and you don’t have to tune into a radio station offering no explanations only superficial views, see here:

        The saddest part of is that the pair of them fail to see the complete abject cowardice of the Tory party in their utter failure to do anything about this.
        They could have fallen on this stupid woman like a ton of bricks and sacked her with enormous condemnation of her hate filled Fascist views.

        They should also have hauled the equalities commission over the coals and the Gestapo for failing to deal with what if it had been the other way around would have been viewed as a ‘hate’ incident.

    “Officers spoke with the two men and neither were considered to have committed any offences.”

    A Counter Terrorism Policing unit has issued an update on the ‘suspicious device’ that saw a Ryanair flight intercepted by RAF jets at London Stansted Airport yesterday (Sunday, August 30).
    Following reports of a suspicious device in the bathroom of a plane arriving from Vienna, Austria, shortly after 7pm, Counter Terrorism Policing officers from ERSOU detained two men under Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act (2000).
    After an examination by specialist investigators, the object was found not to be of concern.”

      When I was skippering sail training boats in the Solent, the Coastguard and helicopter service would call occasionally over the marine radio and ask if they could carry out a dummy run, ‘rescue’ for practice purposes. Good fun. Some trainee crew being hoisted up to the helicopter. Something to tell their children about one day.

          I just don’t get it. Every migrant who arrived here from being weeks old, are now coming out of the woodwork complaining what a rotten life they’ve had in this country. I’m bloody sure if I moved to Canada / Australia / anywhere in Europe or the rest of the world, and my life was a constant misery, there’s only one answer – LEAVE ! GET OUT ! MOVE ON !

          Regardless of coming with Windrush, being kicked out of Uganda, arriving from Middle East atrocities, don’t whine, do something about it. One doesn’t stay in a job if life is unbearable you change jobs. Simples.

            My brother’s best friend at school emigrated with his family to Australia, (one of those £10 ‘Poms’).

            The family didn’t like Australia so they came back to the UK at considerable expense.

            I guess today the equivalent family would sue the pants of the Australian government and demand that Australians ‘integrate’ with them?

    The BBC’s finest still doing their damndest to pillory Trump in an effort to prevent his re-election.

    Nick Bryant was actually censured by the BBC for a blatantly anti-Trump piece that was mainly Bryant’s own views…despite this I heard him later report on the RNC….not much had changed…the tone was clearly meant to convey disdain, distaste and contempt and everything was a negative.

    This is widespread across the BBC and we had Jane O’Brien also reporting on the RNC. She told us Trump had turned demonstrations about race and social justice [even that is a controversial take on them by her….more about Black supremacy that justice] into an issue of law and order…..as cities and towns across America are burnt and destroyed by rioting, people killed, threatened and attacked for being Trump supporters.

    She blamed the media for hyping stories about riots, death, looting and destruction….of daring to report the violence that happened ‘alongside the peaceful protests’….lol….as if the two are separate even as ‘protestors’ set up a guillotine to threaten those they don’t like…

    ‘Protestors erected a guillotine outside the house of billionaire Jeff Bezos. A Chicago teachers’ union branch tweeted: “We are completely frightened by, completely impressed by and completely in support of wherever this is headed.” Teachers said that.’

    Not sure why she blames the media…they are after all mostly anti-Trump and pro-riot…such as CNN which, like the BBC, sees only the ‘mostly peaceful riots’….

    ‘a CNN journalist reported on “fiery but mostly peaceful” demonstrations in Wisconsin. It “wasn’t until nightfall”, he said, “that things began to get a little bit more contentious”. He was standing in front of burnt-out cars and a building engulfed in flames.’

    Food prog, No agenda pushing ?
    “Prime Minister Carolyn Steel joins Sheila Dillon
    for this special edition of The Food Prog from the year 2030
    Sheila discusses the PM’s rise to power after Britain saw food shortages & riots in the 2020s
    & what it is like to now live in Sitopia”

    ” She meets Chris Young from the Real Bread Campaign to hear about how the banning of industrial bread has created thousands of jobs in bakeries. ”

    “Sheila holograms with Stephen Ritz, founder of The Green Bronx Machine, to hear how his pioneering work inspired the prime minister to turn school playing fields into gardens ”

    “Back in the Rose Garden Sheila interviews the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Patrick Holden – who in 2020 was the chief executive of The Sustainable Food Trust – to question him on how Britain can afford to live in Sitopia without a substantial raise in taxes.”

    Basically it’s PR job to promote Carolyn Steel’s book
    ‘Sitopia: How Food Can Save the World’ was published in 2020.

    Plans afoot for a new broadcaster, GB News. I don’t have much hope that GB News will tell us the truth about mass migration or Islsmification. It’s set up by an ex BBC executive and it has obtained the required Gov Licence to broadcast. So I think that whilst it may be free from some of the worst excesses of the BBC it will still be very much a liberal establishment mouthpiece , lying about Islam , lying about the impact of mass migration, lying about climate change, lying about Trump. They have already said the Nigel Farage won’t be involved . The cynic in me suspects that the liberal establishment have realised that only Woke Folk believe the BBC any longer and so want to have a more credible propaganda outlet for their lies.
    If they give the likes of Tommy Robinson a fair hearing or they are even handed about the EU , I will view them differently but until then I think they are working on behalf of the liberal establishment.

    SPOKE TOO SOON: Was it smart of Halifax pensioner Doris Wainwright to say that Emily Maitlis “seems rather shallow”? Maybe not! In tonight’s programme, Newsnight’s hugely admired “lead presenter” sets out her intellectual credentials on a tour of her private boudoir — playing excitedly with her handbag collection, arranging her lipsticks in parallel rows and arguing with Naga Munchetty about who has the silliest taste in shoes. Don’t expect to hear much more from Dopey Doris!
