      Can anyone even begin to imagine a transgender rugby player?
      It’s a tough and dangerous contact sport. Women would get seriously hurt.
      Apart from that…Just the thought of Bill Beaumont charging along in a blonde wig is enough to turn my stomach…
      And WTF would happen in the showers?

      Apparently according to the BBC’s Black History people. I have had a picture of a Black Roman Emperor in the top right hand corner of my Children’s Enclopedia since 1960.

      The Children’s Encyclopaedia: Arthur Mee: Volume Four: Pages 2878 & 2879: Pictures of Fifty Roman Emperors.

      Question for family was: Which Roman Emperor looks Black?

      Answer was: They all look White

      Question: Ok then, according to the BBC, which one was born in Africa

      Answer: Look on the Internet

      Looking up Septimius Severus on the Internet shows that he was born in the city of Leptis Magna in the Roman province of Africa, of a Punic father and a Roman mother. The whole continent of Africa was eventually named after this tiny bit of Tunisia & Northern Libya. Also there is no mention of Blacks in the scholarly records as the Punic father was descended from the same family of people as the Jews, not Sub-Saharan Africans.

      It shows that unlike the BBC, Arthur Mee didn’t brainwash our childhood with lies.

    I see we have an article giving some in-depth publicity to 3 specially selected members of the 1,200 independent candidates in the USA election.
    One is a black, ex-beauty-queen BLM supporter whose main complaint seems to be that she hasn’t got the special attention she thinks she deserves given current BLM status. Another is a native American standing up for native Americans and ‘people of colour. The third is an ex-actor who is clearly a complete liberal.
    Good luck to them : it’s a free country. But as usual, the BBC has absolutely no balance for opposing politcial opinions.
    The lack of impartiality and obvious bias is beyond a joke now.

    Now social media is like a school playground, so everyone gets bullied and trolled.

      That #Backendofbusism is as ignored by the media industry is as unsurprising as it is clearly rife, despite them seldom finding an ism they cannot outrage over.

      Especially given the much more subjective nature of ‘beauty’, those hired to debate and arbitrate err on a particular type.

      In other news, CNN enters its fourth day of informing the world that Blonde Stunna Taylor Shifty has come out in fave of Joe.

        Let us pretend that we on here are all billionaires and explain why immigration is so good. A growing population shops for food, clothes, household items etc. – we have shares in all these providers and our dividends increase yearly. Immigrants need somewhere to live so land value goes up, housebuilding increases, rent increases and so on. We have shares in that lot also so again our dividends increase yearly. Increased availability of manpower lowers wages so the cost of manufacture goes down and profits go up. We own shares in manufacturing, our dividends increase yearly.

        We won’t mention the investment opportunities of the Climate Change scam!

        But there is a PR problem, the people wouldn’t like it if the benefits of immigration were so obviously ours alone. Fortunately we have many useful idiots, who we encourage and reward, who sincerely believe that it is the nation’s moral duty to bring justice to the world by spreading our hard-earned standard of living to poorer parts by importing their “workers” (let’s ignore our generous International Aid and third-world corruption of course). The logical conclusion to their plans is that the world achieves an average standard of living – something like a Brazilian slum perhaps? Except we billionaires, of course – we have our gated communities, estates and islands.

        But idealists are not enough, we need the help of those in positions of power such as politicians, the media, charities etc. Fortunately, we billionaires are benefitting so much from these policies that we can afford to “persuade” the venal leaders and influencers by the judicious use of just a fraction of our wealth by rewarding them with lucrative positions (look at the remuneration of ex-politicians, charity leaders, local councils, the BBC!).

        Of course, there are downsides. Riots and crime may increase but they don’t really affect us billionaires who are the real citizens of the world, being able to fly and live wherever we like. In fact, a good riot gets us even more money, we own building companies, building suppliers and furnishers! What’s not to like?

          popeye, you have the economics of it just so. To a ‘t’. Right on. Perfectomundo.

          Just don’t mention the Social Security scam that the basic rate taxpayer pays for. And a bunch of these people had the cheek to write to the Chancellor last week asking for tax cuts and encouraging him to ‘go for growth’. Ruth Lea was one of them and she, of all people, ought to know better.

          To be fair, once upon a time in economics it was believed that growth came from low taxes on the high paid and wealthy. I studied at a time when that was being proved untrue (probably for the first time – late 1970s) and my teacher – a Broker’s analyst by day – was grounded enough to point out both theories, old and new, and explain that economics is a science because it relies on observation. “Wait and see.” teacher said.

          Now we know better. It has been proved true in every decade since. The true drivers of economic growth are those in the middle, The JAMmed, the bulk of the population; not the wealthy and high earners. The wealthy and high earners, with some notable exceptions, only tend to want more and more and have the leverage to get it.

That bastard in the White House has not declared a single war in his four years in power so we will do everything in our power to get rid of him by our usual tactic of employing the “democrats”, social justice warriors, bien pensants, BLM, millionaire “celebrities”, the bought and paid for media and politicians to lie on our behalf and bring him down. We are so powerful and rich that we can afford to drown out all opposition and make the peasants think they are in a minority. We now own social media and search engines so WE WILL WIN

This was someone who had lived through most of the Cold War under threat of nuclear annihilation. Ho hum.

      …so few black, Asian and Ethnics at the top of Uk businesses ????

      Well, every time I open a paper I see that its always an Asian or ethnic who are the millionaire/billionaire owners of many High Street nationwide companies, Sanja Gupt owns Tata Steel, the Hinduja brothers, Gopichand and Srichand, have reclaimed their crown as the UK’s wealthiest people, according to the annual Rich List survey. The Indian-born, London-based industrialists are estimated to be worth £22bn, up £1.35bn on last year’s list, and I read this week that a ‘Mohammed ‘millionaire who like to be photographed with celebrities has been arrested on money laundering charges.

      So this Teresa woman needs to do a bit of research, and she’ll find that one way or another many ‘whiteys’ are the employees of BAME’s.

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #1 – “I wanna pizza!”

    The BBC’s web-site informs me that our university students are angry. They have been forced into lockdown and as the BBC inform me, in their prisons they are only being given ‘junk’ food. Er, pardon me, but isn’t that what teenagers choose to eat anyway?

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-54486269

    The photo prominently shows some fresh fruit and some bread of the sort halfway between white and brown wholemeal. That was just the breakfast meal. According to the article, the students have had to request fresh fruit and vegetables from their parents on the ‘outside’.

    Precisely how many teenagers in the UK cook and eat fresh vegetables for breakfast, BBC?

    What happened to cereal, toast and marmalade, tea and coffee and fruit juice for breakfast?

    Oh, I get it now. The students want to finish off the rest of the doner kebab or mixed meat noodles that they brought home in a drunken state and abandoned on their kitchen worktops before going to bed.

    And white farmers murdered and their wives raped in South Africa by African black racists ignored by the bbbc, and Christians and their churches torched and murdered by muslim racists around the world ignored by the bbbc

            Brissles, Rod Stewart’s ‘Sailing’ might also be appropriate as a getaway but on the other hand, thinking of the Diamond Princess and all that, maybe not.

              It may have something to do with being inolved in concert promotion on a small scale but still seeing hundreds of bands with talented musicians touring and working their socks off and never getting any recognition

              Then rhis bunch of worthless [email protected] come along, who could not even sing, formed by a man, tought to partially be able to sing by a man, promoted by men, managed by men

              then they get some ill deserved recognition and whitter on about “girl power” ffs

                I agree, and would say further to that Darcy, I always thought it was a strange anomaly to see 4 or 5 grown men singing like girls (high pitched voices) prancing around in an attempt to be sexy, yet being referred to as BOY bands – er, really ? which begs the question, is an 18 year old upwards who can drive a car, have sex, get married, and vote, still a boy ???? So glad to see the back of them, although I see they’re all running out of money and are back on the road as the geriatric boy bands 🙂

    Wow stunning Daily Mail investigation into corps exploiting windfarm subsidy loopholes

    The top comment is
    These bloody useless Wind Turbines cost 4.5 Million Pounds each and hardly produce any electricity as they rarely ever turn. ….. All our energy bills have 12% Government Green Issues added and then 5% VAT added to that. ….. Climate Change is the worst HOAX ever,
    and the BBC are the worst instigator of all.
    ….. Don’t renew your TV licence

      Laurence has noticed so hopefully he will raise awareness of this lunacy in the run up to Trafalgar Day on October 21.

      According to the Telegraph report
      Nelson displays could be subject to “wholesale changes” in future, and the “more complex” nature of his heroism will be tackled by curators re-evaluating “historical events and people” as part of a new strategy.

      A select group of trustees and community groups will guide the new strategy being rolled out to address “issues raised by the BLM movement”, purging outdated archive language and using a database to root out links to slavery.

      I would question the ability of these curators, selected trustees and ‘community groups’ to ‘re-evaluate’. The role of a curator is to organise and look after things, i.e. to conserve and not to PURGE. Having said that HR have probably already redefined the role according to Common Purpose guidelines.

      As the author of the article says “This cultural slide has got to stop.”

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #2 – Just like billions before her …..

    Except, Paloma Faith is a (multi-?)millionaire ‘pop star’ and Sleb. Pregnancy is a risky time for a woman, two to care for right from conception and plenty to go wrong. Until relatively recently in the history of the world, childbirth was the biggest cause of death for fertile women.

    The BBC have turned UK females into high anxiety, poor mental health, weaklings and this article keeps the propaganda going. Most of the girls and women I have encountered, with one or two notable exceptions, have been really strong, capable human beings. That was especially so in my childhood, teens and early adult years. My grandmother, one one side of the family, had been a widow nigh on twenty years by the time she was dangling a baby me on her knee and she had survived. Sure, she had help from a daughter and others.

    When you can call on the best medical help in an advanced country, it’s not quite like giving birth in the Karen highlands in Myanmar & Thailand or on a collective farm in western China or in a favela in northern Brazil.

    Then, as you read down the article, this woman has the cheek to bemoan the publicity which helped to turn her into a millionaire music star. Worse comes if you check her Wiki page (usual disclaimers about accuracy) and you find that she loves the dangers and agonies of pregnancy and childbirth so much that she has had six rounds of IVF to go through it all again.

    Hah!

    Mucky PR fingerprints all over this and shame on the BBC for pandering to it. All the BBC do now is mere churnalism.

    [Except it is usually five minutes later than live, up to the second scores can be obtained from any of the big bookmaker’s website. This applies to all BBC “live text reports”.]

    “Whenever Nadal, Djokovic or the great Roger Federer reach a Grand Slam final it’s about more than the here and now.

    It’s about each player’s quest to become the greatest male player the sport has ever seen.”

    [So the claim here is that the women players are better!]

    I understand that the scottish lady MP who carried covid on public transport to the hated westminster – who was elected under an SNP flag has given an interview where she says she is staying on as an ££££££ MP.
    Now i am sure that the BBC has treated her in the same way as other figures caught out breaching the rules – camped outside her home – filming her family and neighbours –
    Giving her the unrelenting 24 hour treatment some loved of the sneery BBC .

    Or does the BBC – turn and look the other way when it is one of their own ?

      taffman, The whole thing is a complete joke. Perhaps we could release some marauding hungry Great White sharks in the Channel. This ‘problem’ has been ‘current’, on and off depending on the weather, tides, availability of dinghies etc since at least 2015 when our Government promised to address the problem.
      ‘Totally impotent’ springs to mind and unfortunately the hooman rights lawyers have the upper hand. My local Council at a South Coast ‘International’ Port can no longer take illegal minors as they are ‘full up’. Yet still they flood in. Ferry crossings, for example, have substantially decreased, yet September was a record month for illegals.
      You really couldn’t make this up and I actually wonder if the UK has erected advertising hoardings in Afghanistan, Sudan etc with big arrows pointing ‘This way to the Promised Land’ and ‘Catch the number 34A bus from Khartoum bus station’.

        But very importantly, remember this fiasco when you next vote.
        Parliament is presently stuffed with ‘Actors’ , fake politicians and ‘men of straw’ .

    The muse has struck but I cannot guarantee AISI quality or regularity: – A Newspaper front page Review

    The Sunday People get pole position from the BBC for an attack on the PM, likening Bojo to Mrs T. Both made bad decisions and poor decisions. In the 1979-1989 period Mrs Thatcher was under attack from about half of the print and broadcast media. The current PM seems to be attacked by all broadcast media, especially the BBC, and almost all of the print media. News journalism has left the various buildings.

    The Sunday Telegraph becomes rather more factual, reporting on local lockdowns and, unusually, using a picture of Prince William on the front page rather than the so beloved of the tabloids, Duchess of Cambridge. ‘Eat yer ‘eart aht, Mrs Sussex.’ Unfortunately, the Duke of Cambridge appears to have swallowed the BBcAttenborough Cake all in one go and has found a liking for it.

    Everyone is revolting in the Sunday Express against ‘Boris’ Lockdown’ and The Observer decides to interview the Princess of School Truancy, Greta Thunberg to prove it. The previous King of Football also gets a front page taster for an article on ‘How I dun it’ so Spurs supporters should look away now. BBC favourite Dame deMoment and that of some posters in these hallowed halls, June Sarpong, also gets a top billing. Text space is left for a front page attack on the PM and the Home Secretary. Surprise? Not.

    Food is never far from UK newspaper front pages, no wonder we are becoming a nation of fatties. The Sunday Times is treading a different path with a top page story on the food favourite of Islingtonians and Socialists everywhere, the avocado. The BBC will be relieved to learn that Waitrose stopped buying avocados from a farm accused of beatings, rape and murder. Only yesterday an internet news provider was encouraging oldies to eat avocados. Oh dear, what to do?

    The Sunday Mirror claims that Cabinet Ministers’ constituencies are being given an easy ride when it comes to local lockdowns. Well, they would, wouldn’t they? The Red-top Mirror attacking the Government, that is.

    More surprising is an attack, apparently based on foundless gossip according to the BBC, from the Sunday Mail of all papers, on Matt Hancock, the well-known Spoonerism too far. According to the Far-Right Mail, h h Hancock ha had a ‘swift hh ha half’ after local Lockdown time in a House of Commons Bar euphemistically known as ‘The Tea Room’.

    To distract from all that, the Star on Sunday, Beeboid JustRemainIn Webb’s favourite newspaper, has a picture of a couple of moggle’s cleavages before demonstrating that its own journalism is really well away with the fairies.

      The Times also has a concerning story on p2.

      “Contract-tracing data harvested from pubs and restaurants being sold on”.

      Apparently, by using a QR Code provided to the business in question by a certain firm, one gives consent to having one’s data flogged on for advertising and other purposes. Another firm supplying QR Codes asserts their rights to keep one’s data for 25 years.
