    ‘Many have said ‘

    And the classic ‘some have said ..’

    ‘There have been reports ‘

    Followed by how great Biden is . Glad I rarely hear this biased poison .

    In order to report negatively on mr trump. MSM just want him dead – sopel must be drafting the obituary to sound like a senior journalist instead of a poisonous ‘beauty ‘….

      http://pembrokeshire-herald.com/61537/no-charges-brought-over-bedding-fire-at-penally-training-camp/

      A MAN arrested for arson at the Penally Training Camp after setting fire to his bedding is being dealt with internally by ‘adult community resolution’ therefore no further charges will be brought.

      “An individual was arrested after setting fire to a pillow case.

      “Nobody was injured and there was very minor damage to property.”

      Community resolution provides an opportunity for the police to deal with appropriate low level offences and offenders without recourse to formal criminal justice sanctions.

      This could include a simple apology, an offer of compensation or a promise to clear up any graffiti or criminal damage.

      They are used to deal with lower level crime remorse has been expressed and the victim does not wish for the police to take formal action, a government website states.

      Aaah, bless.
      However I think we are the ‘victims’ and I for one demand justice.

        Thank you Sir.

        Have the Tories signed a secret deal with the EU to let all these illegals on to our shores that they are afraid the news will get out that they are responsible and have betrayed us ?
        They know full well that the if true, people Britain will never vote for them again . Hence the timid Tory MPs silence and inactivity in stopping the invasion. They care more for their jobs .
        Having the UK in lockdown is a good time to hide the invasion. UKIP and the Brexit Party should now unite and prepare for government .

      Fogarty admits “I had left screen on 24/7. Check that. Auto lock.”

      then also found that her phone recorded that Twitter usage accounted for 38% of power.

      They have a debate about ultra low energy bluetooth
      The first thing is that energy usage is not logged cos it part of the system operation.
      ==========

      I’ve seen cellphone’s in buildings which were on the edge of cellphone tower range, use massive energy
      What happens is that instead of sitting doing nothing by waiting for a signal from the tower, ..they sit their continually handshaking with the tower as the signal appears, then drops then comes back.

      I can imagine being in a office where through a wall another phone is also on edge of Bluetooth range so the handshaking keeps happening.

    I’ve mentioned on here previously that my brother is a Labour councillor. It seems many of his colleagues are also getting heartily fed up with the incessant BLM coverage of late. One council member is black, and objects (cue a lot of eye rolling) to being categorised as a BAME. Which led another c/member to proclaim that the B in BAME stands for black. This did not go down well, which was met with a lot of ‘heads in hands’, so even in the august atmosphere of council chambers, our elected representatives are having strifes of their own to contend with 🙂

    Glanced at South Africa Today News to find that farm foreman, Brendin Horner (21), was tortured and murdered on the farm De Rots, near Paul Roux, in the Free State, on 1 October.
    This is nothing unusual, sadly. In fact, a daily event.
    ANC cabinet minister, Bheki Cele said recently that ‘farmers must not complain if they get hurt’, the paper further reports.
    In the Province of Gauteng, 445 farm attacks were committed in the last financial year, with only 3 arrests.
    We seem to be looking at a repeat of Zimbabwe here, but with far more brutality, and far greater numbers of racist attacks and tortures. SA Government seems to approve.
    From the beeb, only deafening silence about these events, for many years. One wonders why?
    The entire MSM, in fact, keen to look the other way.
    RIP Brendin Horner.

        Above all, one should not let that government off the hook. They still enjoy being celebrated under the ‘Mandela legacy’. In fact, racism seems to be as strong as ever, albeit in reverse, and it has been joined by massive corruption. Apparently SAG not being held to account though.
        And, talking about being held to account, Priti seems to be all words and no action, as far as our illegals are concerned.

    Weird BBC Race Theory
    In the real world there are good and bad people of all skin colours. It’s not decided by skin colour

    But in BBC Guardian Race Theory status is dependent on skin colour
    : Non-whites are CONSTANT VICTIMS of white people racism.

    : Whites are CONSTANT PERPS of racism against non-whites just by virtue of their skin colour… even if they are nice or even continually favour non-whites.

    There are studies where corps deliberately recruited more female managers to engineer gender balance
    ..and then it was found those female bosses recruited even less females than the previous male bosses had.

    Watched a BBC program in which the editor of the now Pro- BBC/Establishment rag Private Eye, Ian Hislop, moaned about Charles Moore being an Anti-Establishment rebel, even though he went to Eton. Pointing out that unlike the new law abiding editor of Private Eye, Ian Hislop, Moore broke the law of the land, by not paying the BBC licence fee. Something admittedly, Private Eye once did as an anti-establishment magazine under Peter Cook and Christopher Booker, who once said that the BBC had been guilty of abusing the trust of its audience. But the now establishment friendly Private Eye editor was very angry at the prospect of someone threatening his job at the BBC. Ian Hislop made it very clear that Private Eye would never attack the BBC in the same way as such an anti-establishment rebel like Charles Moore is doing.

    Hislop was very angry indeed. It was more like Boo, Hoo I need the licence fee money, rather than Ho, Ho.

    Mixed reports about President Trump. Is he seriously ill, requiring oxygen, why was he moved out of the White House, his HQ?
    Trump tweets, indicating he is well.
    Experts are predicting how he might be replaced.
    Perhaps his opponents have found a way of arresting him, followed by a replacement. And Trump is fighting back with tweets.
    Naw, the doctors say he is doing well. Yes, I believe them. But in a day or two will he decline and die?
    It can happen you know.
    Noticed the way the BBC on 6pm news mangled the sound in an interview with a legal expert and cut him off in order to show a distance shot of the hospital.

    I try to avoid listening to many BBC progs cos they live in this fantasy world
    But this week I caught Lawrie Taylors prog on car ownership
    Who did he bring on ?
    Local Bradford Pakistani made good, now working as a sociology lecturer at Bradford university.
    And this Yunis Alam was promoting his book ‘Race, Taste, Class and Cars’ about car ownership in Bradford

    He explained ‘Bradford Asians are not merely drivers
    not neutral not holding a CENTRED POSITION like WHITE people are’
    Pakistanis didn’t fit in in wealthy neighborhoods if they drove a flash car, cos such cars are usually driven by white professionals

    And then they don’t fit in in a working class suburb cos no one drives a flash car there.
    What so they are *double victims* ?

    Tosh if an Asian top medic or top lawyer drives a flash car no one bats an eyelid.

    What they do notice is if a young kid drives gangsterlike car in a gangsterlike way.

    When a good black driver’s car gets mistaken for gangster car
    it is connected to the way that in the past actual black gangsters have used that type of car.

    Do orthodox Jews driving big Volvos get mistaken for gangsters ?
    No cos there is no prior tradition of Volvo driving orthodox Jew gangsters.

    “You can see supercars like Lamborghinis and Ferraris fairly frequently in certain parts of the city”
    .. what you don’t think some of those owners are connected to crime.
    Those guys that were shot by police had supercars .

    “There is a large community of custom car people”

    He only interviewed 100 people
    ‘When there was a terrorist events or at the end of the Brexit there seemed to a spike in road rage events with those dressed in a Muslim way.’
    .. So, when US cops accidentally kill a black man, don’t similarly dressed officers observe a backlash of belligerence on the street ?

    Yunis “Non-whiteness” blah blah
    “those oppressed buy into the language of the oppressors”

    Then Lawrie moved onto the Chinese expert, she like the Bradford guy said fossil fueled cars won’t be ending soon.
    Chinese middle class are the ones with cars
    And they drive alone to work, but using a big car, cos they want to be able to driver the extended family at weekends.

    Jon the beauty has now been rattled. He is tweeting furiously !!!!

    Extraordinary, astonishing unbelievable and crazy !!!!

    Clarification from ⁦

    This is the extraordinary letter released by ⁦
    @realDonaldTrump
    ⁩ physician pre-2016 election, suggesting that Mr Trump might have had a hand in writing it. Not inconceivable that president has told his physician today what he could and couldn’t say over receiving oxygen

    Unbelievable – so the ‘source’ for the statement that president’s vitals being ‘very concerning’ I’m going to guess is Mark Meadows, the chief of staff – seen here briefing my colleagues, straight after the press conference by
    @realDonaldTrump
    physician

    This is crazy. Very important addition to this. This is a senior WH ‘source’ who has said this to ALL the pool reporters who are at Walter Reed. So at same time as dr is saying one thing, a senior official is painting a v different picture.
    Why would you do that?

      island -Salvini – it is a sign of the times when someone trying to ENFORCE THE LAW has to go to court for that “crime”!
      He is guilty of offending against PEOPLE TRAFFICKERS -usually German ‘NGO’ vessels, heavy on virtue signalling, frequently wimmin run, pals of ‘no-borders’ Merkel. They ‘rescue’ the so-called ‘migrants’ in the Med and take them to Italy, usually via Lampedusa. All this will be enforced by Merkel buddy, Ursula v d Leyen. (Spot any pattern yet?)
      Some of them will likely have the Channel as their next crossing on water, to be picked up by, let’s say, the lady in Kent who runs a similar service, welcoming ‘migrants’ to Dover. The taxi will have been provided by HM Border Farce, accompanied by rhythmic chants of disapproval from Priti.
      Of course, if you view this critically and approve of Salvini, you will be accused of ‘lacking compassion’. So, how many will come? Thousands? Millions?
      Heavily-guarded and well-housed Merkel won’t mind.
      The situation is not dissimilar in Mexico, headed for the US. This time the naughty party is currently in hospital.

    The Times preview of Attenborough’s new Netflix doco is hyperbolic
    (Friday Netflix tweeted a 1m46s trailer ..they’ve deleted it, but not the tweet) .. Here’s a copy
    “It is the story of how we came to make this, our greatest mistake
    – and how, if we act now, we can yet put it right ”

    Times : Most of the film is devoted to Attenborough’s “witness statement”
    of our crimes against the Earth.
    Each stop on the timeline gets an intertitle of statistics charting human population
    and carbon emissions — both shooting up
    — and the percentage of the planet covered by wilderness, plunging in the opposite direction.

    Some of it is less pretty: walruses plummeting off overcrowded cliffs after being forced there by melting ice. (That’s fakenews)

      It is very sad what atheism does to the human brain. The lack of faith in a Creator God who is wise and loving and cares for the planet and the humans that He created – and will do so until the end of time – means that Attenborough has to make himself and others into small ‘g’ gods. It is that ol’ Genesis 3 thing with the shameless lizard in the garden.

      Also in Genesis, God said, instructed even, “Be fruitful and multiply”

      A question for Attenborough and all those of his ilk and inclination: ‘Which animals, in all your observations, care most for other animals and the environment.?’

      If there’s one thing that’s been shown clearly by Trump’s illness, it’s that the mainstream media is utterly useless for finding out the facts. They’re all saying different things and I am none the wiser as to the President’s health.

      Perhaps it was always so but the internet has brought it into the open. I like to think, however, that previous generations of journalists were actually interested, to some extent at least, in reporting the truth even if it was with their particular slant. This generation of journalists is barely stopping short of hoping he dies.

      Boris used to tall about Climate Change with Piers Corbyn, noting that his forty day weather forecast, starting from a solar Coronal mass ejection, was better than the fortnight weather forecast of the Met Office, based on Carbonic acid gas. But apart from Brexit, he is now getting most of his policy ideas from Jeremy Corbyn. So we continue with a very expensive railway to Birmingham that nobody now wants, except those receiving the massive amount of money from the taxpayer. We continue with loony left-wing policies on foreign aid and state aid to brainwash small children on LGBT sex change politics and to fear none existent problems such as Global Warming.

      On the Atmospheric Physics of net zero Carbonic acid gas causing future electricity power cuts due to expensive wet wood chips, dirty solar panels and rusty windmills. Boris makes the Chinese Communist party seem very sensibly right-wing on cheap coal powered electricity generation.

      Also, Boris wont even save Rolls Royce by replacing the very expensive Chinese communist built nuclear reactors with patriotic British Rolls Royce super value and highly advanced, small modular reactors.

    For some reason BBC R4 decided we needed a lecture on our ‘literary xenophobia’, our racist refusal to read books from other nations.

    Yet another ‘dangerous’, divisive and dishonest lie about race and the xenophobic Whiteys being given too much airtime by the BBC.

    They wheeled in Ann Morgan to berate and upbraid us…she having spent a year reading books from ‘other nations’ as a project of self-education and enlightenment brought about by her self-induced guilt at hardly ever having read a book that wasn’t written by a Brit or Yank.

    ‘ I used to stick mostly to British and North American writers, with the occasional South African, Australian and Indian thrown in. My knowledge of world literature was shamefully anglocentric.’

    Essentially we are all being labelled as xenophobes purely because she herself hasn’t read very widely and rather than accept it as purely a personal ‘failing’, if it is, she makes it into an ‘issue’ she can, of course, sell and market…which she does remarkably well as she gathers in all the building blocks of what goes into bringing a book onto the bookshelves and builds them into a towering conflation of outrage….apparently hardly any books are published or read by non-anglophone authors or readers due to that ‘literary xenophobia’. Trouble is like any such exercise where all the ‘correct’ blocks are rounded up and then stuck together what you get is never the real or most effective thing ….just look at the US Army’s astonishingly bad UCP light grey camouflage uniform…now consigned to history….all the ‘right’ colours for the perfect camouflage according to the technology and the science….and yet it ddn’t work in the real world….just like her thesis.

    Hmmmm…astonishing she hasn’t read any Russian classics….of course nobody has have they? Russian fussian….foreign rubbish! Her project itself kind of belies her own theory…that there are no books out there by foreign authors….how can you spend a year reading books that don’t exist?

    And nobody reads them? Er…how is so many books by Bames get to the top of reading lists and win so many literary prizes….she obviously doesn’t notice as she proclaims that such people are under-represented on bookshelves and by those literary prizes.

    Just check out Amazon….enter ‘African’ or ‘Japanese’ or Chinese or even ‘Papua New Guinea’ Authors and see what pops up and if anyone reads them. She could have saved herself a lot of trouble just doing that….though you suspect that rather than an exercise of personal enlightenment and ‘literary tourism’ it was from the start a sort of Guardianistic project to create yet another stick to beat Whitey with and invent yet another example of the oppression and rejection, ‘othering’ and marginalisation, of Bames by the White Imperialist Patriarchy.

    The literary industry needs to be decolonised……we need less like Benjamin Zephania, Zadie Smith, Afua Hirsch, Onjali Rauf, Ibtihaj Muhammad, S. K. Ali , David Olusoga, Reni Eddo-Lodge, Nikesh Shukla, Abi Daré, Hanif Kureishi or Salman Rushdie….oh…maybe not that islamophobe…more of which later.

    Odd how there’s this book….must be a work of fiction….[Do read the chapter on ‘Post-colonial plurality in Fiction’]

    ‘The Cambridge Companion to British Black and Asian Literature (1945–2010)’

    ‘This Companion offers a comprehensive account of the influence of contemporary British Black and Asian writing in British culture. While there are a number of anthologies covering Black and Asian literature, there is no volume that comparatively addresses fiction, poetry, plays and performance, and provides critical accounts of the qualities and impact within one book. It charts the distinctive Black and Asian voices within the body of British writing and examines the creative and cultural impact that African, Caribbean and South Asian writers have had on British literature. ‘

        320 pages….there’s a lot more bame authors and artists out there than the BBC imagines….the BBC reality is totally at odds with, erm, reality….what they tell you about certain subjects bares no relation to the lived experience…such as no blacks in the country due to racist blockades keeping them in their urban ghettoes….plenty around where I live….they are not living in fear, not running the gauntlet every time they walk down the street, not hating Churchill or tearing down statues…..as far as I can tell they’re happy and successful….and that’s in a very white rural area and small town.

    Reference our Whitey ‘literary xenophobia’ and the racist oppression that Bames suffer in a nasty and racist Britain…..

    Compare and contrast.

    An author, born in Nigeria, came to the West…writes a book.

    Compare and contrast her life here with what she writes about back ‘home’….and then tell me about all that racist oppression and hate that fester in colonial, white, British hearts….how she has suffered here!

    From the blurb for the book on Amazon…

    ‘Abi Daré grew up in Lagos, Nigeria and has lived in the UK for over 18 years. She studied law at the University of Wolverhampton and has an M.Sc. in International Project Management from Glasgow Caledonian University. Keen to improve her writing, Abi completed an MA in Creative Writing at Birkbeck University of London, achieving a Distinction. Her novel, THE GIRL WITH THE LOUDING VOICE won The Bath Novel Award in 2018 and was selected as a finalist in The Literary Consultancy Pen Factor competition in 2018. Abi lives in Essex with her husband and two children. ‘

    From the comments on her book….

    ‘This book is like a breath of fresh air, original and real. It brings conditions in Nigeria home to you, the joy amid abject poverty, horrible superstitions and brutal customs that oppress women and girls, the enormous gap between rich and poor, the loyalty, rich feeling, closeness to nature, survival of the feminine against all the odds in a few real spirits.’

    ‘A huge well done to Abi Dare and I hope that an increased awareness of this book will bring about a change in the way young boys, girls, men and women are treated when they are brought to work in the homes of the ‘rich’/ more privileged in Nigeria. ‘

    ‘A really well written story of a Nigerian girls struggle to escape from a life of servitude, physical and sexual violence through education.

    This is a phenomenal book that reminds us how lucky we are in the west.’

    LOL…on a slightly different tack….the comparison brings to mind Richard Dawkins and his ‘Muslima’ letter that dared to suggest many feminist issues in the West didn’t bare comparison to those in far-off lands….a woman being asked to come for a coffee in America was almost ‘rape’ according to the feminists whilst girls having their vaginas hacked off with blunt razor blades in Somalia is, well, bad but well, maybe cultural and ooohh…too ethnic and racial to deal with. Most unfair of the misogynist Dawkins to draw attention to such differences.

    Quote From BBC news

    That includes expediting the removal of those “who have no claim for protection”, she will say.

    It comes after it emerged this week the UK has considered sending asylum seekers to the South Pacific………

    FFS she considered sending bogus asylum seekers to Ascension Island which is in the South Atlantic !!! You cannot trust a word they come out with.

    Having just trawled around press sites I find a desperate desire to just stop . There is little by way of ‘positive ‘ news . Until a couple of days ago a daily ‘review ‘/ summary of the papers was put up . That has now stopped .

    Anyway the main headline thar caught me is that Charles Moore has ruled himself out of chairmanship of the BBC – leaving the way clear for someone more colourful –

    And a piece in the telegraph describing how ‘lefty luvvies ‘ can say bad things without punishment ( margolys / brand ‘ west et al ) whilst some of the Right has their career destroyed via a couple of sane comments ) .

    Comments noted how the luvvie world is falling apart as covid continues to bite and even the big outfits such as Netflix is discovering that there are consequences to going ‘woke ‘…..

    One day the Abis, Sharons, Junes, etc will ponder the irony of the positions they are in here vs. where the might have been, and how they are propelled there by saying how terrible it is for them here.

    I have no problem with hard working talent, no matter what their demographic self-identification, improving their lot in this country, but am less happy with them doing so by disparaging it and/or paving the way to advocacy of bringing what has failed elsewhere here to drag us all further down.

    Hattie’s catering company folded after events dropped off a cliff – one of the many businesses that struggled amid Covid restrictions.

    ***

    One wonders how Hattie, smiling, in a massive home kitchen, came to the attention of bbc editorial to be featured?

    Still, at least they are now moving to professions that keep Frankie Howerd in avocado French soldiers when pulling a long one discussing lines to take on Trans issues drawing a full, essential salary.

    Questions that will not be asked – again and again – by the BBC: “Woz it the Democrats wot dunnit?”

    Done what? Infected the White House and the President with Covid-19 (or-20) as they have rather given their game away with the statement from the USA overnight that the Senate Confirmation Hearing for the President’s nominee for the Supreme Court “puts the whole Senate at risk.”

    “Or are the Democrats just shameless opportunists?” < That's a very Soapy style question to ask, actually. But he will not do it.

    ‘”I’m confident he’ll pull through,” said Dominic Raab, as he addressed the nation following Boris Johnson being taken into intensive care, “because if there’s one thing I know about this prime minister, he’s a fighter”.’

    When Boris was said to be ‘fighting’ the coronavirus Emily Maitlis launched her own attack on him proclaiming ‘You do not survive the illness through fortitude and strength of character whatever the Prime Minister’s colleagues will tell us….’

    Really? Highly political tripe from Maitlis upset at the perception of Boris as a ‘fighter’ who battles through due to his strength of character….clearly aiming to undermine any such imagery.

    Wonder what she will make of this then….

    Can’t wait for the next Newsnight ‘plague on all their houses’ splenetic outpourings.

    Rather astonished, not, that the BBC gets so worked up about a standard phrase that gets uttered on such occasions by so many people….read any obituary and the unfortunate person was a ‘fighter’ or a ‘battler’….when the BBC’s own Rachel Bland died from cancer she was ‘courageous’, ‘such a strong woman’, ‘inspirational’, ‘truly heroic’…and when Labour politician Tom Watson said Rachael’s family should “take great pride in the amazing courage she showed”…..where was Emily Maitlis with outraged denouncements of his ‘unhelpful and misleading language and tone’? Guess it’s only Tory politicians she has a problem with.

    The only thing unhelpful and misleading is Maitlis on Newsnight.

      You can also expect such inane comments that they attribute to the stabbing bruvverhood, like “He loved to play football’, or ‘his mates used to meet up wiv him every Saturday, and he was the life and soul etc etc’…

      ‘Thoughts and prayers’ are the usual euphemism for ‘yeah whatever’ and much of this came from that fat, pink bald bloke who used to wear a babygro on a silly quiz show twenty years ago.
