Start the Week Thread 5 October 2020

The Liberal media continues to hope for President Trump to die – without saying it – otherwise than nods and winks – the absence of real concern or even false affection is striking . Bit of a week on the way ..

      The site kept crashing on me on Sunday morning
      I looked at another tab whilst I writing a post
      and when I came back the tab wouldn’t show up
      I made a coffee and came back 10 minutes later
      I clicked back and then forward and my unposted comment was still there .

      Unposted comments are usually conserved even if your login in times out.
      If you in the same tab login and then click back 3 or 4 times you get back to your unposted comment.

      Just knifey kids, officer OK
      15:42hrs SW1 … On Sunday, 4 October
      Two police officers witnessed two males, armed with knives, attempting to rob a grocery store.
      The shopkeeper had managed to push the males out of the store and the officers then attempted to detain them.

      As they challenged the males, the female officer received a stab wound to the abdomen, but continued to chase the suspects along Vauxhall Bridge Road.

      The suspects, both believed to be 15 years old, were detained a short time later with the assistance of firearms officers.
      The officer was taken to hospital for treatment, but has subsequently been discharged.

      Here is a direct quote from that BBC article: “Wales’ first minister said it had become a target for “hard-right extremist” protesters. Men from Iraq and Iran housed at the camp said they were shocked by the conditions.

      The Welsh Secretary’s & the BBC’s main concern is that this will or has attracted “hard right extremists”. They demand more British taxpayers money be spent to combat “hard right extremists” and to improve the living conditions of the asylum seekers which they describe as shocking.

      You would think that asylum seekers from war-torn Iraq and oppressed Iran would be grateful, but no we have an army of human rights lawyers and woke BBC journalists telling them they must fight for their human rights in what they claim to be a racist and threatening Britain.

    I know the government has not exactly played a blinder on Coronavirus.

    However my repeated thesis is that they do not implement policy. They have thousands of civil servants, quangocrats, not to mention 1.5 million NHS heroes for that.

    Remember the PPE fiasco? And the failed app trialled in the Isle of Wight? Not to mention the test result delays?

    Now it turns out that someone, some unaccountable department, managed to miss 16,000 positive results over the last week. Unbelievable.

    Do we really expect Hancock to do the number crunching himself?

    Our cosy public sector, on full pay, full pension rights, and job security that Cineworld employees cannot even dream about, consistently betray the British people, yet there is almost no accountability.

      Well said, Sluff!

      It’s never going to go right for any government in situations like this, Labour and the third-form party would have been just as bad, even worse, but what really was needed was big leadership, and unfortch, Boris caught the blasted thing himself! I still reckon he’s not fit yet!

      As for public services, it makes me very angry to know that they have all those benefits you describe, and still remain unaccountable. Chums have told me that you’ll never get any LA on the phone when you want local info, and Kent police are spending all their time monitoring illegals on the coast, or checking lorries parked up on the motorways.

          Agree. Those ranged against the President are revolutionary leftists, global capitalists, cloud cuckoo liberals and the unthinking fashion conscious Woke. A motley crew .
          The leftists hate and fear him because he is one of a very few leaders who is able to mobilise ordinary folk against them.
          The Global capitalists hate him because he is exposing their complete lack of regard for ordinary westerners.
          The cloud cuckoo liberals hate him because he is waking ordinary folks up to the ridiculous impractical notions that liberals have about the world.
          The fashion conscious Woke hate because it’s what their friends do and what all those celebs do. They have no idea why they hate him they just do.

          Meanwhile ordinary working folks love him because he is handing their country back to them. Get well soon Mr President and WIN. Democracy and ordinary Americans and Westeners need you to save them from the Globalist Woke tyranny that awaits if you lose.

      I am afraid, Taffman, that this is what you get with the BBC, the Labour and other left-wing parties clamouring that, no matter what the government tries to do to make this situation as flexible as possible, to allow some return to a semblance of normality wherever possible, everything, according to them, is just too ‘confusing’ for the moronic (their assessment) UK public to understand.

      This will make it extremely simple, but as a consequence, much harsher regarding specific rules in many locations – but it will still, no matter how simple, still be utterly ‘confusing’ to the twatterati, who have no intention of following any simple rules for the health of the public – note well the behaviour after 10 pm outside pubs, the students’ crazy parties, etc., etc. Strangely, older people, the vast majority of whom never attended university, seem to be able to grasp things much more easily than the putative ‘leaders of tomorrow’, but they, they have a vested interest, I guess.

    On the BBC News Channel about 12:10am they had a live link up to a very camp US reporter from Hollywood bitching about Trump.

    The reporter was moaning about how an infected Trump had gone for a drive to see his fans just with a cloth mask on but the majority of his supporters on the street “had no masks on which is typical of Trump”.

    In typical BBC sanctimonious hypocrite style, just 5 minutes earlier, they have John Sopel also without a mask reporting from the street watching Trump drive by past.

      Talking about Hollywood , Tabs – the latest ‘disaster’ to hit Britain is apparently the (temporary ?) closing down of the cinema chain ‘Cineworld’, here and in the US. No doubt this will be portrayed by the BBC and other lefties as being because of the terrible Tory government.

      Hmm….perhaps it has far more to do with the ‘liberal’ elites in Hollywood (most of whom seem to hate anything in the slightest to the right of Mao Tse Tung)……….who are apparently all for the ‘little people’ (as apposed to conservatives – small ‘c’) until it might hit them in the pocket – e.g. by lowering box-office income if they release a whole bunch of planned ‘blockbusters’ this year, so that they can’t get the income they want…

      It doesn’t seem to matter to the deranged media types that the people who accompanied POTUS in the car may well be the same people who accompanied him to hospital and/or will travel back to the White House with him if he is discharged today.

      They were aware of his condition and were wearing proper protective equipment unlike, say, the poor sods who had the misfortune to find themselves in close proximity to Margaret Ferrier on her recent trip to and from Westminster.

      The difference between the Trump and Ferrier scenarios is as stark as the attitude and behaviour of the UK media to each of them.

      I would wager that even viewing their Trustpilot review is a sackable offence for any BBC staff.

      I also found the review from the German chap both enlightening and troubling. Apparently in Germany the SState broadcasters have the population by the neck and this guy hopes we can trash the BBC to add momentum to their fight against the German SState version, no wonder the BBC fought tooth and nail to try to keep us in this dreadful corrupt stasi regime!

    9am R4 banging about Whiteys being nasty slave owners and racists.

    Bottomline if blacks had been that numerous bin Europe for 1,600 years their descendents would be so evident..

    Europeans and Africans have been encountering one another since as early as the 3rd century *, according to the historian Olivette Otele.
    She tells Tom Sutcliffe that exploring a past long overlooked raises prescient questions about racism, identity, citizenship and power.
    * (Surely there is a BBC typo there cos it must be 3rd century BC ..cos the Romans were in North Africa
    ..and probably even earlier)

    The subject of Sudhir Hazareesingh’s biography, Black Spartacus – was no ordinary figure.
    A former slave, he became the leader of a revolution in the 1790s that transformed Haiti

    Prof Kate Williams discusses the new debates raging in history, including how we should approach the legacies of colonialism and misogyny

        An interesting question is how long there have been ‘Africans’ in Africa. The historian Simon Webb argues that the first Africans were probably pale-skinned, rather than ‘black’.

        And, of course, let’s not forget the ultimate authority on such matters: Diane Abbott, who believes “The earliest blacks in Britain were probably black Roman centurions that came over hundreds of years before Christ.” Presumably using time machines, as the Roman conquest of Britain began in 43 AD under the Emperor Claudius, 10 years after the crucifixation of Christ (okay, Julius Caesar made two botched attempts about 90 years beforehand, but they didn’t get much beyond wetting their toes on the Kent shoreline).

          Ian, that’s a possibility as we know that humans have evolved and there is evolution but just not as atheists would like us to believe.

          Back when the Mayor of Milwaukee was kicking-off with various statements about the USA after the George Floyd death, I checked on what, more correctly who, were the first inhabitants of the country we know as the USA. The Mayor was going along with the idea that BAMEs of African descent were the original Americans.

          This disappointed me, who enjoyed as a child tales of the Pilgrim Fathers settling in America and their contact with various Indian tribes. Apparently some scientists who research such things, shocked me even more by suggesting those Indians were ethnically white, were of Caucasian descent and had walked across the land bridge – while it existed – from Russia to Alaska and down and across North America.

          I guess it’s possible. In North America, those whites would – with the help of constant sunshine – had skin that gradually darkened to prevent burning. Still surprising, though. It might also explain why some American ‘Indians’ have slightly Chinese looking eyes: either an adaption through many generations to protect eyes from strong sunlight or possibly some inter-marriage on the migration eastwards to the West.

        Quite correct, Stew. We know from the Bible – more recently in the first century AD – that Queen Candace had a ‘eunuch’ (slave) who was probably dark-skinned and was the Queen’s Chancellor of the Exchequer. This Head of Treasury to Candace was either Jewish or a proselyte or acolyte and had been to Jerusalem to worship at the Temple. Looks like I’m stuck on tourism this morning!

        The account is in the book of Acts, chapter 8.

        Much more recently, Ethiopian Jews have been granted the opportunity to relocate to Israel.

    Listening to Laurence Fox’s interview with Peter Whittle posted by pugnazious yesterday here at 5:10 he seemed shocked and surprised that a grown man had come up to him in the street and started crying in frustration.
    Why was he surprised? Has he really been that sheltered?

    Laurence is rightly appalled by the deliberate and co-ordinated attacks on our culture and our loss of free speech, but like others he will trip over the elephant in the room. I wish Laurence well, but what will he do when he finds out about the true extent of Islamic jihad and the malign influence of Sharia?

    As far as I can see the only registered political party brave enough to challenge these issues head on is For Britain, which is why it has been deplatformed. All the other parties are just tinkering around the edges, if at all.

    Not the BBC but I expect them to be in sympathy with it despite the absolute nonsense contained therein:

    https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/quiet-change-duty-free-catastrophe-104116762.html

    As many on here are keen Brexiteers, I flag the above item as an example of the desperation of Remainers to overturn our UK democracy and act as fascists.

    I could be out of touch with what Fortnum & Mason sell these days but the last time I looked it was high end food and drink and:
    1. Overseas visitors are not allowed to import foodstuffs into their own countries,
    2. If on anything other than a day trip, where would a tourist store a fine wine or an expensive paté; would they carry it around?
    3. VAT and duties tend not to be applied to foodstuffs anyway, and,
    4. The article specifically mentions electronic goods and gadgets which, to the best of my knowledge, Fortnum & Mason do not sell.

    The mentality and intellectual ability of Remainers laid bare.

    Looks like Fortnum & Mason will be added to my list of stores to avoid. I’ll have to try and avoid Yahoo as well although that can be a little more tricky.

    The bbbc as usual only have bad things to say about President Trump, one of the latest is that he’s putting people, such as his bodyguards, in danger.

    He is wearing a mask.

    Does the bbbc think masks don’t work and therefore we might as well bin the lot of them or, if they do work, why are they saying DT is putting his security men in danger.
    No answers needed, we all know the bbbc only see bad when it comes to DT but it seems, according to the bbbc, that masks do not work (or maybe only DT’s mask doesn’t work as opposed to every other mask in the world)

    So then.

    Re the Fox Sainsbury feud.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8803619/Laurence-Fox-says-boycotting-Sainsburys-promoting-racial-segregation-discrimination.html

    I think if Sainsbury’s had left the final clause “….and anyone who does not want to shop with an inclusive retailer is welcome to shop elewhere.” off their public statement they would have made the same point without being totally offensive which is how it comes across. I will be avoiding JS in future as well.

    I would guess this came from a 20 something graduate in their Social Marketing dept. rather than from someone level-headed at the top.

    Large companies must soon begin to realise they can’t put their corporate profile into the hands of these activist marketing children.

      I think some of the companies can only blame themselves. They have removed so many layers of management where experienced people (higher pay therefore got rid of) would filter out stuff that was off the wall.

    Further to my post yesterday facts4eu.org do not agree with everything in the Centre for Brexit Policy paper but it does seem that the WA/PD must be revoked because a WTO exit still involves the WA/PD, unless the Government formally repudiates it.

        Odds are it could kill him and if you’d asked me a few days ago, I’d have expected that they’d both have it, making the most likely outcome a stitch up by the house. I think the whole thing will come down to whether or not Biden has one of his dementia blackouts on live tv and it’s astonishing that having showed up to one, they’re still saying he’s up for a 2nd round when he now has a couple decent excuses to stay out of the limelight.

        And of course the real race is whether the republicans end up keeping the senate and can therefore block anything that Biden and his friends propose. Ditto the supreme court which can kick out loony left laws on health/environment/race for being unconstitutional.

    Spitting Image : Dump Box scandal

    BBC/ITV looked at Netflix with envy
    and decided to create their own pay streaming service
    Only instead of spending $billions on new quality content they just dumped their old back catalogue on it.
    That’s all the old content that everyone has already seen.
    So few people want to pay the £6/month charge
    So BBC/ITV had a spiffing idea “lets put some brand new content on it, we’ll revamp Spitting Image and make the Dump Box the only platform people can watch it on”

    Not only that but new Spi-Image is devoid of Labour characters
    No Lammy, no Diane Abbott, no Dawn Butler
    ..is there some special reason why you can’t satire them
    No Corbyn even
    The only Labour character is Starmer portrayed a boring .
    Yet it has a Jacinda Ardern character ..
    Bet she and Greta are portrayed sympathetically .. Greta got to approve her own puppet.
