    Greetings and Good Morning.

    This mornings perusal of the BBC website brings numerous evidence of the BBC pushing agendas. However for your consideration I bring you the current lead story in the BBC’s Entertainment & Arts news section:
    2020-09-19-1051-Entertainment-00.jpg

    Please read the headline & accompanying text – is there anything that might be in breach of the BBC charter?

    Would you be able to guess who the painter might be – a white man or a white woman feminist?

      BBC above

      And there’s more.
      How about this example of a non-story made into a story to support the agenda – in this case our NHS heroes

      https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-53914546
      ‘NHS workers who died in the pandemic’

      600 health and social care workers have caught coronavirus and died.

      The clear aim is to tug at the heart strings and imply that these brave souls died as a result of putting their lives at risk by working on the front line.

      Yet months ago there was a survey done which showed NHS workers died in the same proportion as the rest of us. Nor was there any evidence that they actually caught the virus at work as opposed to at home, in the shops etc ect.

      And 600 deaths out of 42000 isn’t that bad when you consider the million ++ workers in the sector as a proportion of the working population.

      So maybe the biased BBC could think about those workers in the evil private sector – bus drivers, taxi drivers, security people, who really did die in excess numbers.

      But no. That would not fit the narrative.

    I you were to invade the compounds of illegal immigrant hotels,
    with minibuses each full of 10 people from the Covid hotspot of Bolton
    what would happen ?

    .. The lefty trickster lawyers would be straight to court saying that British people are putting the poor little babes lives at risk
    .. and the Covid laws should be used to jail you.

    Whereas when dozens of boats land on Hastings beach each with 10, 15, 20 illegals from the Covid hotspot of the Calais camps
    who march through the town
    .. the authorities act as if no laws have been broken.

    Funny how it is the organisations that do not suffer from market forces and so do not need talented individuals best suited for their roles who pack their places to the rafters with blacks, local authorites are typical of this.

    I remember well my tenure at one (as one of three white males on a floor of about sixty) with droves of them arriving at 10 am for work loaded with tupperware boxes of curries and various garlic concoctions, first thing they would do was not check their desk or email but straight to the microwave for…. a 10 am breakfast.

    The place stank of fish curries and garlic bread burning in toasters all day.

    Others (mostly white females) crunching their way through bowls of cereal at their desks all morning.

    I had an hours drive to arrive at 8am this lot turn up between 9 and 10 and still appaerently have not managed to have breakfast before they leave for work.

    That was bad enough but as a person required to improve customer service to be told by their manager “that one will lie to you and that one will shout at you” if challenged about complaints and enquiries not addressed for over 30 days who are still employed I got out as soon as possible

      Darcy,
      Yes, I’m also of the generation that lived with, “If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well”; “Stitch in time, saves nine” etc. The wasters now-a- days have no idea particularly the foreigners. Its forcing the country down to their ‘African’ style approach to day-to-day events and work. I’m not unhappy with my upbringing. Indeed, I am extremely happy that I can distinguish myself from the wasters. Call that ‘White Privilege’ if you will.

    The UK has lost appx 4663 people to suicide this year,
    That’s 18/day

    There are about 20 Covid deaths each day, almost all over 80yo
    1,500 die each day of all causes
    (Of course if there were zero Covid lockdown measures, Covid deaths would be a bit higher)

          Caliph
          I had a number which suggest that a third more suicides are males over 40 – which would suit the BBC agenda all the way down

          I dread what the real numbers are going to look like when covid ends – which it will –
          And the price paid – not just in UK but everywhere that China infected is added up .

          Ive said here before that the way covid pans out really is unknown – but if the ‘ normal ‘ pattern of viruses is followed it becomes less infectious and less malign
          In its effect …
          ……. but if it goes the other way …, we really will have some more ‘issues ‘ to deal with .

          Its one of those subjects which is so horrible to contemplate as to avoiding serious planning … which is why we are in a mess…

    EAST ENDERS PLOT SPOILER ALERT ( fedup2 editing )

    In case you missed it (and I certainly did), Gray killed his wife Chantelle in EastEnders last night, despite her attempts to get help from another man, Kheerat. According to the soap’s publicity, this is all about exposing the truth about domestic abuse.
    It’s just that. . . Gray isn’t grey, he’s white; Chantelle is black, or at least mixed-race; Kheerat is. . .I think you can guess. Are we expected to believe that these roles are applied purely coincidentally?
    A story about domestic violence; demonisation of white people just an added bonus.
    I’ll leave the last word to EastEnders Executive Producer Jon Sen (British-Asian btw):
    “She (Chantelle) looks at Gray as being someone who is above her – his smart suit, nice job – he’s very middle class.
    In reality, she is worth a million of him because she’s a kinder, better, nicer person.”

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died and I glance through the BBC Obituary and flag waving piece. There must be substantial differences between UK and USA Law. In the UK we require our Judges, whatever their ranking, to be impartial, strictly politically neutral in their application of the Law to the accused or the plaintiff.

    The BBC make it apparent that Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg was extremely biased and imply that she was very political and partial in her judgements.

      According to the BBC she was a heroine. Notice how the BBC make a big fuss about the death of feminists and they don’t have to be British or relevant to British society for them to make a big fuss over it: homepage news, multiple reports across the BBC website, inspiration to the next generation of feminists etc.

      When a white man dies there is no BBC report, maybe there is a footnote in one of the minor news sections. Unless of course the white man was gay or a woke celebrity. Then the BBC get their team of woke writers to get writing and commission an expensive melodrama documenting their heroic struggle.

        This report will be done by an outsourced crowd, totally independent from the awful BBC, and therefore will not ‘tarnish’ the supposed formality of the white-shirted nerds in W1A.

        The blame is then lost in a shower of bureaucracy, just a few minutes after the said piece is broadcast, and of course, nobody will bother to retract anything, and the damage will have been done!

      In the US, judges are supposed to be impartial and make their decisions based on the law and legal precedents.

      That being said …

      In many places, at the state and local level, judges must stand in elections many of which will be partisan elections. Most of these judgeships are for a fixed term after which the incumbent will have to stand for reelection. This can cause them to be very aware to the winds of public opinion and the shifts and ebbs and flows of the Vox Populi, but certainly never influencing their sound and impartial opinions. 😉😉

      At the Federal level, judges are appointed by the President subject to confirmation by the Senate. Federal judges are appointed for life, in theory insulating them from the pressures of public opinion or political interference. Oft times thus works but a President is not going to appoint someone with a political ideology 180° different from their own.

      This results in political and ideological biases at the Federal level where the issues in dispute are oft times influenced by politics of the US District Attorneys who are appointed by and serve at the pleasure of the President and who decide what matters to prosecute.

          I think that as long as we have the severely divided, polarised society we do that it’s inevitable that the judiciary will mirror the “outside” world.

          I’ve been saying for a while now that all the BLM & Antifa Nachtmusik is Basic Training in preparation for the Left’s post-election anarchy if it looks like Trump has won

          I agree with you about 2Amd, when I left America to come here I had to dispose my weapons and associated kit, e.g., powder mixers and reloading kit. If I were still there I would be buying, buying, buying just to be on the safe side.

        Dobyns, thank you for those insights. I knew the Sherriff (C.o. Police) and Mayor stood for election but didn’t know about Judges doing the same. That means the system is fully politicised.

        Dangerous.

        I knew that Police Chief and District Attorney were stepping stones to higher office, thanks to Hill Street Blues and Homicide: Life on the Streets.

        I puzzle why Tony Blair would want a UK Supreme Court that might weaken or even conflict with future Labour Governments. We have seen already what can happen with the notorious Lady Hale (retired). Hopefully we will not go fully down the US route but what happened there often happens here in time.

        Perhaps Blair just wanted the extra Power of Patronage? Maybe he wanted more tendrils attached to the Deep State?

    The BBC have another top story on their CBBC Newsround channel for British kids promoting Taylor Swift – a 30 year old white female pop singer from the USA who is a feminist activist and worth upwards of $500 million.

    Week after week the BBC produce at least one article or one report or one broadcast on Taylor Swift promoting her albums, her songs, her concerts, her merchandise, her politics, her life. These usually get headlined on the BBC homepage and the BBC Newsround channel.

    What do the BBC get in return from all their promotion of Taylor Swift?

    Are they getting a cut of her sales profit? Are they getting free concert tickets for family and friends? Are they using her celebrity popularity to brainwash kids and others into their radical feminist agenda?

    Lockdowns-the Government will impose new lockdowns if they think they can get away with it. This year’s stay-at-home orders and lockdowns imposed by governments on their populations represent a watershed moment in the history of the modern state.
    Before March 2020, it is unlikely that many politicians—let alone many ordinary people—thought it would be feasible or likely for government officials to force hundreds of millions of human beings to “self-isolate.”
    But it turns out governments were indeed able to force a sizable portion of their populations to abandon jobs, religious practices, extended families, and community life in the name of “flattening the curve.”
    Whether through fear as manufactured by the news media, BBC or through outright threats of punishment, business owners shuttered their shops and offices, churches closed down, and schools abandoned their students. Well you know the rest.
    Over time, most governments lessened their restrictions, largely out of fear that tax revenues would collapse and out of fear that the public would become unwilling to obey lockdown edicts indefinitely. Those fears—not scientific objectivity—have been guiding the gradual loosening of lockdowns and lockdown-related restrictions in recent weeks. After all, in many jurisdictions—both in Europe and the USA, cases and case growth are far above what they were back in March and April when we were told that high case totals absolutely required strict lockdowns. If the case numbers are higher now than during the previous peak, why no new lockdowns?
    Make no mistake many politicians, would love to impose lockdowns again, and indefinitely. After all, the power to micromanage the behavior of every business, and households in the manner of covid lockdowns is a power, undreamed of by even the most despotic emperor of old. It’s not a power that any regime would abandon lightly. But people, could they get away with it? This is a question every pro-lockdown politician is asking. For the extent to which lockdowns have been scaled back and lessened, we cannot thank any enlightenment or change of heart on the part of politicians. If lockdowns now seem to be receding, it’s because policymakers fear another round of lockdowns would be greeted with resistance rather than obedience. In short, the retreat of lockdowns is a result of an uneasy truce between the anti-lockdown public (which is by no means the whole public) and the pro-lockdown politicians. The politicians have conceded nothing in terms of their asserted authority, but they nonetheless fear greater resistance in the future and they should.
    Governments Are Limited Only by the Public’s Resistance-On the other hand, governments are limited by how much the public is willing to tolerate. Tricky situation-riot Police, we don’t want to see on our streets-however to think that governments will limit themselves without at least the fear of some form of resistance would be fanciful, to say the least.

    Remarkable (not really) difference in headlines for Justice Ginsberg and Justice Scalia from the BBC .
    Scalia BBC US and Canada News: “One of the most conservative members of the US Supreme Court, Antonin Scalia, has died.

    Justice Scalia’s death could shift the balance of power on the US high court, allowing President Barack Obama to add a fifth liberal justice to the bench.”

    Ginsberg BBC US and Canada News: “Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Republicans vow to vote on Trump pick.”

    Ginsberg BBC US Lurch News: ” Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death sparks political firestorm”

    Strange that the Beeb omits the fact that, despite being polar opposites politically, Scalia and Ginsberg were friends who went on vacations together. Something sadly missing in today’s climate.

      There is clearly something wrong with judges in the USA (and probably here too).

      The US Constitution is quite straightforward (not like the EU Treaties) and one would think that senior judges would all interpret it the same way regardless of their politics.

      (It has never struck me as being right in this country that a case can go to appeal, the decision be reversed, go to the Supreme Court, who then reverses the judgement again. That smacks of Jarndyce and Jarndyce rather than Justice).

        Broadcasting – on a side note, I got caught up in that Salman Rushdie protest in London (was on a coach that got stuck in the middle of it). It was one of the most hateful scenes I’ve ever witnessed.
        And it then that I began to distrust the powers that be to really preserve fair and democratic freedom of expression. This was under Major I think. (I remember questioning why no-one seemed to be being arrested for calling for an end to a man’s life. Maybe they were later, but not at the point when I saw it.)

    Obviously POTUS and his team never got a mention . It was temarkably upbeat otherwise and held out the prospects of the likes of saudi making nice with israel , tremours in the middle east becoming an earthquake .

      Bizarrely FedUp the comment did have a line about Russian models .
      The post was on my screen tonight, but I guess maybe I hadn’t pressed send this morning like I thought I had.

      What I saw this morning was the local BBC producer falsely tweeting
      that Kofi is such a nice guy “Here’s a photo of us ”
      .. and in it they are both wearing RAINBOW glasses
      And another presenter also falsely tweeted that Kofi is an angel.

      My post explained that is not true cos Kofi speaks and tweets bile along with the beeboid grouthink.
      eg When young conservatives 17 yo Alice Grant and her sister Grace made their video against socialism which ends by saying “socialists try to close down free speech” Kofi tweeted mocking her.
      These two sisters and their 2 friends were on the Brexit march.
      This caused the newspapers to write an article saying that good looking young girls couldn’t be at the Brexit supporting demos, they must be paid Russian models.

    OK so here is today’s story about an anti BBC guy who tweeted
    a black local radio presenter today
    (The context is that although of course it’s fine for anyone to rise through talent it often seems that some BBC staff are shoehorned in based on a sin colour tickbox
    .. this local of Ghanaian decent just happened to win their new talent competition)

    The guy
    tweeted (still not deleted) to the presenter
    I’m defunding the BBC because it’s become a left wing group. .. Blacks and DIVERSITY rules.
    That’s why you where employed
    cos your black, talent is not a consideration.
    That’s why I am defunding the BBC it supports the left wing groups and no longer suitable to report the news.

    I don’t see that tweet is illegal, cos it’s just opinion.
    But sending such an opinion is bound to trigger the beeboids, they are not going to calmly read it, of course they are going to lash out and behave like a school bully gang.
    .. Doing the trick of bullying by taking offence, to dehumanize the speaker

    And sure enough that is what the newspaper article does
    labels it as “racist”

    and they can do that, cos an ex-beeboid colleague came forward and labelled the comment as
    “your hate-filled racism does not have a place in my circle of friends.”

    The newspaper claimed that the public was against guy
    In fact this morning , I saw no public commenting ..rather the presenter’s producer and another presenter had falsely lionised the presenter.

      More context : It’s another case of white presenter kicked out for black presenter.

      Looking at the Hull guys old tweets shows 4 or 5 tweets complaining
      That he liked the old breakfast presenter, so why have the BBC replaced him with the black guy..who’d previously just done PR for station and a couple of day/week of nightime shows.

      The guy is also annoyed by Kofis BLM agenda
      ad said himself the cases of wrong prosecuted soldiers in Northern Ireland are being ignored by the media
      he tweeted Kofi about 13 times
      but only the recent one generated 147 tweets from the BBC school bully gang back at him.
      Full of HATE, pictures of gammon etc
      aggression and micro-agression
      Of course people who support the guy are going to keep their heads down.

    After watching the Man Utd-Crystal Palace match this evening
    I was juggling around with the movie channels and low and behold
    an adventure film , one of the very best ,and English to , from
    1959 was on Talking Pictures. This ,actually a masterpiece of it’s
    type would NEVER in a million years be shown on the BBC.
    Even more than the Dam Busters with the immortal words spoken
    by group captain Guy Gibson VC to his black labrador “come here “**gger, Yes, North West Fontier starring Kenneth Moore ,Laureen Bacall,Herbert Lom, Wilfred Hyde White and the irrepressible I.S.Johar as Gupta the train driver, who should
    of won an academy award.The film is about as politically incorrect
    today as you could ever wish to see. For those of you who
    contribute to this website, it’s a must!
    You see to put it in latter day terms Herbert Lom is Muslim terrorist.He is trying to kill a Hindu child the young son of a
    maharaja . Captain Scott is trying to save the child as the steam
    train travels though the North West Frontier.Herbert Lom
    tries to kill the child several times and when Scott finally
    susses out his intentions . He tells Lom “Now i know why
    you are doing this,you are a Muslim!”
    But this is only one of several occasions when the woke
    hierarchy at the BBC would shit themselves if anybody suggested, and I reiterate ,that this adventure masterpiece
    be shown.
    I know that I have written about this before.But if you like
    good examples of British TV tradition.For example The last night of the Proms.Last of the summer wine. A question of sport with Sue Barker . Matt Dawson and Phil Tufnell. Watch this film.
    And say *uck you BBC. Because there is no British tradition in
    you. You shouldn’t even allowed to use the word British in your name.Being British is an anathema to you.

      Foscari,
      My late Nan had a black dog with the same name as Guy Gibson’s. The scruffy old thing only exists to me on the very fringes of my early memories but my Dad, who’s 85 now, remembers him with affection.
      When an old picture surfaced of the dog on a beach, my Dad said, “He would guard your clothes without even being told!”
      I’ve no doubt that Guy Gibson loved his dog, too. So however unacceptable it might seem today, why can’t people see that there was nothing offensive meant about it at the time?

    The BBC homepage as of now: check out the third story:
    2020-09-20-0004-homepage-00.jpg

    Really unbelievably. The BBC is demanding the United States recognize their foundational stories are a myth and in fact the Pilgrim Fathers represent a bunch of racists and were the Original Sin that led to the murder of Floyd George at the hands of a racist police force in a systemically racist America.

    The BBC demand the racist Pilgrim Fathers be torn down from their pedestals in the same manner that Confederate statues are being torn down from their pedestals.

    But then later on the BBC say it wasn’t the Pilgrim Fathers it was in fact the Pilgrim Mothers in a feminist twist to the story. The article is a complete mess of woke thinking and a complete hatchet job.

    The “impartial” BBC strikes again and all paid for by the British people.

      Vlad,
      We are all, now, held to different standards. And the law/justice system follows that, confirming a clear multi-level approach which whitee sees every day. The ‘queer’ vandalising public property and a court discharge above, demonstrates the multi-level penalty system. But, try peeing near public property in London and see what happens to you.

      As the ‘system’ appeases different groups, the disparities are exacerbated. You are not exempt even if you are a member of the largest group of about 87%. In fact, you will receive more harsh treatment compared to a black in the 3.5% demographic range.
      A recipe for big trouble, I submit.

    The BBC’s impartial food programme presenter writes in the Mail….

    ‘US farming is tasteless, toxic and cruel – and its monstrous practices have no place here’

    ‘ As we prepare to leave the European Union at the end of this year, our impressive agricultural system could soon be wrecked by ruthless competition and a flood of cheap imports.

    The most serious threat comes from the U.S., whose vast and unwieldy farming industry is far less regulated than ours.

    In the name of efficiency, it has built a highly mechanised, intensive and shockingly cruel approach which keeps animals in conditions so appalling it’s hard for us in the UK to grasp. Meanwhile, an arsenal of chemicals that are banned here are also deployed on these poor creatures.

    It is not the sort of produce that should be allowed to swamp our own. When Brexit supporters spoke of ‘taking back control’, they did not envisage the destruction of British farming caused by mass-produced goods soaked in chlorine and cruelty.

    In an attempt to prevent this grim eventuality, a last-ditch battle is under way at Westminster aiming to establish essential safeguards in post-Brexit Britain.’

    The BBC’s anti-Brexit fight continues with the lies, distortions and misinformation…and not a little scaremongering…..Your kids swim in chlorinated swimming pools, they probably drink tap water with added chlorine…the EU has no problem with the safety of chlorine washed chicken…and cattle which are fed growth hormones are perfectly safe as long as the products are used properly…same as with, er, 5G.

    If the BBC is concerned about the way animals are raised or slaughtered then why not be concerned about meat from non-Western countries or animals killed under Halal rules?

    Yet another BBC employee allowed [given explicit permission or even encouraged to do so?] to go off ranch in order to spread such highly prejudiced views…how does this sit with the BBC’s rules on the use of social media…surely even more important to control what they write in full-on, blatantly political, articles in other non-BBC Press and not just the limited, but revealing, out-bursts on Twitter?

    Tim Davie just said he would rein this type of thing in…guess he better get started.

    Can’t help thinking such articles are fully endorsed by the BBC…it is ‘the BBC’ by the backdoor…the BBC getting its message out using other media as a trojan horse and reaching audiences that it might not otherwise reach, maybe people who don’t agree with the BBC’s worldview…but if it’s planted in the Daily Mail or the Telegraph…they might take more notice.

    A sneaky, almost sinister attempt to dominate all media, and your thinking, by stealth.

        Were there any witnesses to the dying woman making this wish? Is there anything in the constitution requiring that the wishes of dying women are carried out?
        However,

        JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG URGED THE SENATE TO VOTE ON A REPLACEMENT FOR DECEASED JUSTICE ANTONIN SCALIA PRIOR TO THE 2016 ELECTION: “THAT’S THEIR JOB”
        by Kevin Ryan
        In a July, 2016 interview with the New York Times, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg “chastised the Senate for refusing to act on President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee.”
        While the other seven Supreme Court Justices said nothing in public about President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to fill the vacancy left when conservative justice Antonin Scalia died prior to the 2016 election, Justice Ginsburg was unequivocal.
        “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being president in his last year,” she said when asked if the Senate had an obligation to vote on Judge Garland.
        “That’s their job,” she said.

    One universal press headline this morning with negligible minor variation in phrasing across the piece:
    ‘£10,000 fine for people who fail to self-isolate’

    One might might raise the query “so now we punish the sick (or the supposedly sick) with the full scientific expert medical backing of our sainted NHS?”

    Yet I blame the political leadership, or lack thereof.

    What happened to Boris? With what was he injected when he got sick with bad man-flu? What happened to our puckish prince, our lord of misrule, Falstaff and Prince Hal rolled into one? One moment ready to storm the breach oncemore to de-flower the flower of Frenchified EU bureaucracy, the next unashamedly akimbo on the high wire jack in hand, the people’s guvnor, popular in the northern taverns for brashly displaying his admiration for the common butt and firkin.

    Now he’s Lord Protector. Take your pick of those dark shades, of Olly Cromwell the Christmas canceller of the exchequer and first lord of the misery, or he’s dirty Dick third, humpty with a flu monkey on his back welcoming the winter of lockdown discontent and jabbing our buised arms with unlicensed vaccines. Our monuments graffitied.

    Phew…. enough said, let’s say no more and hope it goes away.

    ‘PJ O’Rourke. The craziest election yet’ in the Sunday Times on the upcoming US Presidentials is probably a good read.

    While the Observer goes all po-faced in their pro-liberal partisanship: ‘Death of revered judge prompts US turmoil’

    ‘The good university guide 2021. Free inside’ (the Times) is probably moot – given the on-going social distancing restrictions student fees will buy our kids a Zoom tutor and slim chance of disposing with their virginity in 2021.

    I am interested however to know how it is: ‘I got my first lesson in leadership from my donkeys’ in the Times’s Keir Starmer interview. That seems no way for a Labour leader to talk about his trades union bosses.

    I am a fan of Ruby Wax and admire the way she seems to subvert the regular female celeb goes for sympathy with tales of past angst press interview: ‘I’m still crazy but in a happy way’ in the Sunday People.

    The Mail reckon they have landed ‘two superb Royal scoops’ – that’ll be Diana and Kate stories.

    And then there’s TV…

    The Mirror heralds: ‘Katie Piper. Why I’ll present songs of praise’

    The Telegraph warns: ‘Bake Off is back’

    The Star featrues: ‘Strictly Neil foxtrots off’

    And Sarah Vine in the Mail points out ‘Kill Whitey ‘joke’ puts BBC in the last chance saloon’

    What do you think of it so far…?

    ‘Bring me sunshine’ emplores the Star. ‘Morecambe & Wise would hate telly now. Shows just not funny says their writer mate’

    According to the MailonLine there are 180 diversity officers in Whitehall and one third are in the Cabinet Office.

    I once had to attend diversity training as a teacher had decided he was transgender. I had to sit in a room listening to a person who had been a married man with children train us to accept he was now a woman so that we accepted that a man who had been married with children was now a woman. Both people were now living as gay women.

    I don’t think any of us were convinced. For example the trainer opened the bottle of water for drinking, arms akimbo, nothing like a woman would. I had asked how the person had behaved as a child. Girls play with plasticine to make flowers, boys will make guns. I didn’t get a reply. The whole training cost a lot of money.

    66 people in the Cabinet Office directing diversity issues, Makes me wonder how many there are responsible for green issues. No wonder we got nonsense at daily briefings during Covid. I am thinking bicycle lanes and football in empty stadiums

    Please Mr Cummings, drain the swamp.
