Weekend Thread 17 October 2020

According to the President of France – the horrific beheading of a teacher in Paris was an ‘Islamic terrorist attack’. The BBC has had to report this murder which was motivated by the showing of a cartoon of Mohammed ;but on its track record the BBC will be desperate to close the incident down and pretend threats of terrorism in the UK are from elsewhere . There is a dark side to multiculturalism but for the BBC propaganda machine it is ‘look away now ‘…

    It would be nice if the BBC could put something like this on TV occasionally to cheer people up during this time but they can’t even do that!! The title of the song “It will be good”

      Lynette, that was wonderful even if you can only understand one word in the song. I like the way one of the two sisters, I guess, looks at her sibling during the performance.

      Was that Michael Nyman ‘moonlighting’ behind the piano as conductor or just a bit of a Nyman look-alike?

    If you find an outrageous tweet -such as those having been put up about the Paris Islamic terrorist murder – please think whether the views of such loons are worthy of this site – or should be left in the garbage of Twitter .

      Just to add – please focus on the tweets and retweets of the BBC employees. Remember the BBC employ over 22,000 people which is over ten times more than that employed by the Nazi’s in their Ministry of Propaganda. Keeping tabs on all of them is beyond our individual resources so maybe focus on key BBC employees.

      In fact 3 such loony tweet “loony tweets” came to the attention of BBC bias watchers like Watch Ratio this morning
      ..those high profile Muslims shouted that Muslims are the true victims
      Now that view comes from fantasyland and that is where the BBC’s groupthink is rooted.
      Groupthink that drives its bias.
      People rooted in the real world ratioed those tweets, thus they got exposed.
      Those 3 people probably move in the same circles a beeboids
      and those 3 are the types that come up on BBC panels.

        The BBC is cowered into not condemning these heinous crimes

    This will be broadcast on BBC 2 and has four episodes. It is a joint UK – Canadian production. As of yet I haven’t been able to find out who commissioned it, but it seems certain that a large chunk of British TV Tax went towards it. Both BBC 2 and BBC (Poland) among others are distributing it.

    Newsnight’s Goodfornothing is only interested in the politics and not the deadly effects that letting Covid19 ‘rip’ through the North will have with millions in danger….as the BBC has constantly and loudly warned us about before….all those dead, all those lives blighted by long covid….but fails to mention that the break down in consensus is solely due to Labour politicking…..this is the crassest and most obvious game playing by Labour and yet it goes entirely unnoticed and unremarked by the BBC’s toppest political reporter who doesn’t mention the threat of covid 19 to all those not locked down….this from a BBC that demanded the lockdown in the first place and then consistently pressured for harsher measures to be imposed and kept up.

    Something which has been bothering me for a long time is how the BBC leave their propaganda newsreel in the ‘listen again’ recordings. It’s got to the stage where I rush to the PC and move it on because I am now hyper-sensitive at spotting the deliberate bias.
    I thought it would probably just be because they have a bot doing it automatically. However, after listening to ‘Sounds of the 60’s’ just now, I noticed I got ‘news’ at the beginning, in the middle AND at the end. So for interest, I went to the next program from the schedule and sure enough the same news was repeated again at the start !.
    I’m now convinced it is entirely deliberate to force a little bit more indoctrination on the masses.

    The new ghettos for illegal immigrants aren’t that new.

    Quite a few years ago, at least in the late nineties, there was a huge survey of several MOD buildings near Whitfield, north of Dover, where there were hundreds of acres of empty ground, which were totally undeveloped.

    There was a real purpose in making the place available for new housing, business premises etc., and as the area was so large, we all thought that this was a great way to use wasted land, which was so close to Dover and Folkestone.

    The pleasant opportunities for the place were dashed when an unsolicited comment emerged from the powers that be on one occasion.

    ‘It’s all going to be a place to stick unwelcome illegal ragheads when they invade again…’

    After that, we all lost interest.

    Stew
    I applaud your resilience if you got through the whole of Toady on Sunday, which God-fearing Mrs S described (rightly) as the worst programme she had ever heard. There is now almost no religious content at all in this programme, it was unending bias all the way.

    1. The Islamic apologist for the Paris beheading proceeded unchecked with no challenge to her tirade against France’s freedom of expression tradition (unfair to Muslims)
    2. The lack of school time spent teaching Hinduism
    3. Liverpool’s reputation as full of grievance-seeking whingers is the fault of southerners,, according to the Bishop of Liverpool, who is given free time to state that the level 3 Covid rules are ‘confusing’ but then has great difficulty enunciating why.
    4. Gordon Brown was given an extended monologue unchallenged comparing current times with the 80s. This glaringly political left wing slot was apparently justified becuae he was agreeing with the Archbishop of Canterbury.

    The entire programme was little more than a very long unashamed Labour Party broadcast.

    But if you think that was it, think again.
    The charity appeal straight afterwards was based on immigrants coming over from the Caribbean !!!!!!

    Absolutely appalling ceaseless left wing bias, approved by the BBC.

    For a fleeting moment this morning it crossed my mind that we had collectively entered some bizarre game of fancy dress.

    No, it wasn’t the strange array of surgically masked Dr Kildares, Zorros, and Dick Turpins that now populate Sainsburys, apparently desperate to engage either in some roadside amateur medical procedure or perhaps simply pull off a good old time stick up?

    It was when I browsed today’s press front page stories that it seemed Britain was off trick or treating out of the dressing up box in the attic.

    The Sunday Times has a story of naughty goings on at a book festival: ‘Hay curator waives anonymity to accuse sheikh’

    Meanwhile the Mail has: ‘Melanie Sykes, 50, has six-day fling with a gondolier, 23’

    Is Cleopatra bonking Napoleon? Or is our elite media class rehearsing a follow up to Eyes Wide Shut we wonder?

    English celebrity chaps are rather confused about their libido – even the gay ones – The Sunday Times reveals: ‘Sam Smith. I have always been non-binary’ – this who asked anyway report appears in the newspaper’s ‘Style’ section – think about that for a moment. Then forget it.

    It must be panto season. The People features: ‘First same sex couple: Strictly is back hooray!’ But not all of our panto dames are in the pink, the Star has: ‘Brown and out. No way to treat yer Mammy. Fears for show as ratings slump’ – that’s BBC tv show Mrs Brown’s Boys down in the dumps.

    The Mirror splashes with: ‘Queen’s pardon for hero killer of London Bridge’ – be careful where you put the comma in that headline.

    This was the chap who chased a terrorist down the road armed with a narwhal tusk – you see what I mean about the strange fictional amateur dramatics dressing up box feel to today’s news?

    They all get out of jail early these days, don’t they? Anyway the newly released and appropriately named Steve Gallant will likely find his liberties surprisingly restricted on the outside. Depending where he lives. He could find himself the only bloke in his district NOT prevented from freely associating with friends, banned from bars and places of entertainment and NOT tagged, monitored and electronically traced.

      There is an incredible hypocrisy going on. I understand people can believe in “Climate Change”, people can be Climate Change skeptics, and people can believe “Climate Change” is untrue.

      Now the BBC campaigns for Climate Change Activism, using such techniques as emotional blackmail, yet they have the biggest carbon footprint imaginable.

      For example the BBC Newsround team flew all the way to the remote South Pacific island of Fiji, went scuba diving off the coast, lived the high life all at the British TV taxpayers expense. They justified this exotic excursion to the British kids by explaining that Fiji was at the “forefront” of Climate Change and so they just had to be there to tell British kids about Climate Change.

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #1 – BBC a bit quiet on Brown

    Former Labour leader and former Labour PM and Chancellor of the Exchequer, Gordon Brown, has made an unwelcome call as far as the BBC appear to be concerned. No prominence given on the BBC web-site to Gordon Brown’s call for UK coal mines to be opened and for young people to be sent down into these mines and dig for coal.

    I wonder if he has checked that policy with current Labour leader Keir Starmer who wishes to put more young people out of work with a UK wide national lockdown.

    Brown did not explicitly say that he wanted coal mines re-opened but it was clearly implied during his ‘intervention’ that the BBC Sunday Programme helpfully broadcast on R4 this morning. Apparently, according to the BBC’s Ed Stourton, Archbishop Justin Welby agrees with Gordon Brown.

    An endorsement from on high to get on down.

    For those of us not suffering from amnesia, it will be something of a puzzle why the same Gordon Brown, when he was Chancellor of the Exchequer during ‘the longest period of sustained growth in the UK economy’ kept 1.3 million people, many of them young people, out of work. He also kept many others, mostly mature, older, people economically inactive during his time as Chancellor and also as Prime Minister.

    Maybe Gordon Brown or the BBC could explain?

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #2 – BBC not just a bit quiet on Brown, but very quiet on Brown

    You would have thought that a major intervention from a former PM and Chancellor would have merited a top BBC web-site position. After all any intervention from a Major ex-PM, along with his stable mate Anthony Charles Lynton Blair, is normally accorded top billing on BBC R4 and on the web-site.

    Especially if it is something to do with Brexit.

    Poor old Gordon Brown. No such prominence is accorded to ex-PM brown. He is buried away in the Politics section of the BBC web-site and here – https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-54567681 – is Gordon Brown’s backing for Marcus Rashford’s plea for free school meals for all children.

    Funny, I thought.

    I thought ‘funny’.

    No mention in the BBC web-site article of Gordon Brown’s nostalgia for the coal mines of his childhood Fife.

    I wonder why?

    Kind of surprised to hear old Gordon Brown pop up on a religious programme [justified by saying Welby had, of course, signed up to the Brown propaganda] lecturing us about the lost ‘covid generation’…actually the lost Labour-Lockdown Generation…the letdown generation, the left-behind generation. This is the Left’s legacy and gift to the young…they wanted and demanded the lockdown. It’s clssic socialism…..ruin them and then keep them beggared and at the mercy of the government for their handouts….and tell them how grateful to Labour they should be for saving them.

    Brown repeatedly said he wasn’t being political….and then repeatedly said we are heading back to the 1980’s. Curiously he seems to have missed out that time, you remember, when he was Prime Minister and in charge of one of the biggest financial crashes in history….just months after telling us that this would be ‘an era that history will record as the beginning of a new golden age for the City of London.’…due to Labour’s risk based regulaton-lite rule of the City and its financial wizardry by ‘enhancing a risk based regulatory approach’….implementing ‘ a more risk based approach to the administration of the system.’

    No mention of 2008 from Stourton.

    As the ‘Lost Covid Generation’s’ plight is all down to the lockdown you might think Stourton would ask Brown if he thought the lockdown was the best way of dealing with the situation…given that Labour’s Andy Burnham seems to think it s OK to ‘let the virus rip’ in Manchester rather than close down the economy….but no.

    You, and I, might think that was one of the major questions of our time…but not Stourton. He maintains the BBC editorial narrative that we can’t question the lockdowns….unless Labour does….then, when Starmer states that the lockdowns don’t work, the BBC suddenly demands to know why the government is ‘trashing the economy by implementing local lockdowns that don’t work?’ as Emma Barnett said as she challenged a Tory MP.

    Odd how local lockdowns don’t work but, the BBC assures us, national ones do….despite it being patently obvious that they don’t….2nd wave anyone? Years and years of lockdowns anyone?

    Come an election you can guarantee that the BBC narrative will be that the lockdowns were a bad idea badly implemented and that, maybe like Sweden and Japan [1600 deaths, little lockdown and a terrible test and trace system]…lol, we could have taken a more intellignet and nuanced approach instead of the nuclear blunderbuss of national lockdown that has killed so many and ruined so many lives and futures.

    Not as if the BBC is shamelessly forgetful….who can forget the 2017 election with the BBC presenting Corbyn as the police and security services champion who abhorred terrorism?

    Laughed out loud yesterday listening to Saturday Live on R4 as we had the black ‘Charlotte Mensah, the UK’s authority on natural Afro, mixed and curly textured hair’ on to tell us about her life and loves.

    Told us she was born in UK but went to live in Ghana for 11 years and then came back to school in UK….where the other black kids wouldn’t talk to her….she was too alien and foreign.

    Now you might think that was an immediate eye-catching statement that would elicit a raft of questions and amazement…but, er, no. Rapidly moved on as if she hadn’t said it…presumably the presenter just too eager to get onto racist Britain and how Blacks were oppressed by being forced to straighten their hair….never mind that from what I can see many Blacks came over from the Windies with that hairstyle….their choice not coercion by the Massa’s…..not as if whites weren’t ‘victims’ of fashion…bobs, beehives and big hair etc etc.

      We are being invaded and our Tory Government does nothing!
      Is this Treason ? The opposition parties say nothing while
      British people are being evicted from their homes and ex-servicemen sleep in the streets. At the same time the invaders are put up in four star hotels.
      Vote for and support the Brexit Party.

    More on that story of a League Two match not taking the knee in support of the Black Lives Matter movement:

    2020-10-18-1209-Football-League-Two-00.jpg

    Click on the BBC story and we have (paraphrased):
    Newport County chairman Gavin Foxall says he will investigate why the teams did not take a knee …

    Players, officials and staff at Premier League and EFL games have regularly taken a knee … to show their support for the Black Lives Matter movement …

    Speaking to BBC Radio Wales’ Call Rob show after Saturday’s match, Foxall said he would seek answers on why the teams did not take a knee.

    Nathan Blake (a multimillionaire black man and former professional footballer) had challenged Foxall over the issue on Radio Wales.

    • From Trayvon Martin to Colin Kaepernick: The story of Black Lives Matter in sport

    Blake said: “Newport… is probably one of the biggest black populations in Great Britain. You have fans here who are black, white, Asian. Don’t you feel accountability and responsibility to those people?”

    Foxall replied: “Racism doesn’t have a place in society … as a football club we’re fully behind that. I don’t know why that didn’t happen today …”
    .
    QPR and Coventry City did not carry out the gesture in support of the Black Lives Matter movement before their Championship match in September …

    So basically BBC Radio Wales employ a black man to comment on various football matches and then that black man demands answers from a chairman whose players did not take the knee. The Chairman is accused of supporting racism for not ensuring the league two players take the knee before a match.

    Fi Glover’s ‘Listening Project’:
    Two nauseatingly self-pitying chatterers on R4, droning on endlessly about ‘racism’, wanting to ‘warn others’ about the endless racism that awaits them in Britain. Nothing positive, no gratitude, only complaining and whingeing. Why do R4/bbc feel they have to foist this on us on a regular basis?
    I sincerely and in the nicest possible way feel that people like this should explore living in Africa or the Caribbean, where people will ‘look like them’. Unfortunately they are in Britain, where they will not see everyone looking like them, and not every negative experience put down to ‘racism’. I very much doubt that most young ‘people of colour’ in Britain feel this way.
    Glover should know better. BbC should ditch this negative, grievance-stirring agenda. Especially R4.

    I am amazed – not – at the predictability of a thirty minute Sneerathon from Mark Mardell on TWotWee. (BBC R4 1-1.30 p.m.) He has a beef, obviously, about high earners. Mark complained several times about some consultant or other who is being paid £7,000 per hour by HMG for something to do with the Pandemic.

    I wonder if Fed would be kind enough to check what Mark himself charges for a half-hour after dinner speech or an afternoon’s fete opening.

    It would also appear that MM has a beef about Brexit and off-shore fishermen and women from the comfortable position of a warm, dry, air-conditioned studio. Out of respect for the dangerous, cold, windy and tough conditions in which British fish reach the customer, I hope MM’s regular chippy refuses to serve him in future.

    Then there is the Conservative Government trying to do its best in dealing with the Pandemic across a pre-fractured UK – thanks Maggie and Tony – and running England alone with an elbow being nudged by SAGE, epidimiologists, doctors, the Opposition in Parliament, the NHS, Civil Servants, Mayors and media, all the while trying to sign cheques for ever greater amounts for whoever can scream loudest.

    No doubt Mardell will have the cheek to complain on a future BBC programme that the country is divided having helped do much of the dividing himself.

    13:40pm Listening Project : after self harm item, it’s into a discussion with Leona (mixed race) & Troy (Caribbean) discussing white privilege and systematic racism.. they claimed
    “I never learnt about all of the great achievements of African civilisations until I got to university, this needs to be taught at school”
    … I suspect what they found at uni was a not the real story but a romanticised version of Black African history.
    And that they have been brainwashed to believe white Britain is far more racist than it actually is.

      Ah but…Britain isn’t, and never was white….it’s been mostly black since Roman times and black people, highly successful, have made major contributions to our national progress…..a BBC narrative that kinda runs counter to the other BBC narrative that blacks have been oppressed failures here throughout history as all those über successful Blacks, like Henry and Dame Floella, keep reminding us about.

      Maybe the BBC should concentrate on educating the blacks on just how many blacks are actually successful instead of spinning them the lie that they are all failures and lecturing whitey about his part in that failure.

      Stew, don’t forget our countryside. “And that they have been brainwashed to believe white Britain and its countryside (both land and seascape) is far more racist than it actually is.” There, fixed that for you.

      I must remember the next time I go walking near Sheffield, I must tell off Mam Tor for being racist.

      Thinks: ‘Does anyone ever complain that Everest is racist?’

    Just read a Telegraph interview with a soon to be ex BBC North presenter, Harry Gration, sacked for being too male, too white and too old. He’s not resentful though….good for him…but whilst you’re down on your knees with your begging bowl you can praise BLM which got you dumped on the scrapheap.

    Actually maybe he’s going because he’s lost the insight and impartiality necessary for a good journalist…he claims the North is being picked on….

    ‘Covid-19, he agrees, has exposed deep running fault lines between the north and south and exposed decades of chronic underinvestment. The decision to open up the country this summer was, he says, one based entirely from a London-centric perspective, rather than taking into consideration the reality of the situation in the north.’

    Oop North was still under the covid cosh when restrictions were lifted? Any more than anywhere else?

    The timeline for Manchester is exactly the same as for the UK as a whole…

    Greater Manchester..
    https://www.gmhsc.org.uk/covid-19/covid-19-cases-dashboard/

    UK
    https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/cases

    ‘Mr Yorkshire’ should also know that the first cases were spotted in Yorkshire…so when they say C19 struck the North later than elsewhere….

    ‘Coronavirus doctor’s diary: The strange case of the choir that coughed in January’
    ‘Dr John Wright of Bradford Royal Infirmary is intrigued by a group of amateur singers who experienced a viral illness with familiar symptoms long before the first recorded case in the UK.’

    As well as the Chinese tourists in York…

    ‘Nationwide hunt is launched for anyone who came into contact with Britain’s first coronavirus victims: Two Chinese tourists are diagnosed after falling ill at a York hotel – so why is it STILL open?’

    Lockdowns have been reimposed since the end of July Oop North…so the new lockdowns are nothing new…

    ‘Coronavirus: Visiting people at home banned in parts of northern England’

    But why?

    ‘The health secretary told the BBC the increase in transmission was due to people visiting friends and relatives.’

    ‘Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham suggested that the rise in transmission had been caused in part by gatherings “in multi-generational households”.

    Asked whether he meant predominantly the Asian population of Greater Manchester, Mr Burnham replied: “Yes, I do mean that.” ‘

    It’s just a fact that these places have the highest population density….London is going into lockdown as well as Birmingham, though tier 2 at present.

    Not some anti-Northern plotthen…..however Labour’s reponse is highly political….the Tories won the Red Wall vote and Labour are trying to take it back by fabricating a narrative about posh boys from the South targeting the North. Burnham was going on about how the poorest areas, like Manchester,, are being targeted…except of course Manchester is enormously successful and booming.

    ‘In recent years Manchester has undergone huge levels of redevelopment and regeneration. It has transformed from a declining city in the 1980’s, during which time it lost almost 50,000 jobs and 17.5% of its population, to the booming centre of the modern Northern Powerhouse.’

    The BBC always insists that the latest wave of C19 isn’t just due to more testing….because of course since the beginning of September tests have risen enormously….in parallel with the case rise. The BBC tells us that this might be the case but positive tests have risen disproportionately….more cases per tests.

    Looking at a graph from the Guardian that does not appear to be the case….on April 8th the hit rate was 40% of tests were positive…tests seem to have increased at least 20 fold whilst positive cases only trebled.

    Twitter silences another one for speaking truth….

    ‘Twitter has once again censored the Republican candidate for Delaware’s U.S. Senate seat, Lauren Witzke, over a tweet drawing attention to the consequences of mass immigration for Europe.’

    ‘“Let’s be clear, mass migration absolutely destroyed Europe,” said Witzke in her tweet. “Italy, France, Sweden and Germany took in tons of migrants who never assimilated. Rapes, murders, and other heinous crimes abound. I will end ALL immigration into the US for ten years.”’

    ‘Hateful conduct’ apparently.

    Today, 69 people died and had a positive covid test up to 4 weeks ago.

    Today, 67,999,931 people did not die with a positive covid test. (Or whatever the population is now minus 69, more likely well over 70 million but you know what I mean)

    In March, 4 in 10 people tested for covid were positive.

    Today, less than 1 in 20 tested for covid are positive (although 90% of the positives don’t have any symptoms and feel normal)

    If lockdowns work why do we need another (and probably more after that)
    If they don’t work why not go the same way as Sweden, one of the few places we don’t need to quarantine ourselves when coming into the UK.
