    Well here we are again.
    The economy is being trashed under the lockdown . Will the NHS survive without the economy? Will all the the pen-pushers working for the NHS be made redundant before the Doctors and Nurses or will they retrain to become auxiliary nurses ?

    Will Priti live up to all her promises to deport all illegal aliens instead of booking them all in to 4* hotels ? Of course we know this encourages more and more to come ?
    I understand that the RAF has gone ‘woke’ and have moved from Brylcreem to dreadlocks, ponytails and plats in order to recruit more ethnics ?
    And Al Beeb is still robbing the poor to pay the rich
    BoJo knows that Al Beeb is pro EU but does not privatise it.
    Can anyone tell me what is going on with The ‘Tory’ Government
    Do we have a woke and libreral government.

    Just watched the BBC1 drama Roadkill (I like Hugh Laurie), and contrary to what I’ve been led to believe, – that our prison inmates are primarily black and Asian, but in the depiction of a women’s prison scene, the 60 or so prisoners were all white except for 3 or 4 non white. The legal team on the other hand were all non white. Just saying. The BBC really don’t like us do they.

One was highlighted, a fitness trainer, needless to say she was BAME. Presentation was like a student exam piece. I assume it was supposed to make it more accessible to young people.

    That’s right, according to the BBC if you vote Joe Biden Climate Change will be limited and the world will be saved. However if you vote for Donald Trump Climate Change will accelerate and the world will explode.

    The new director general of the BBC Tim Davie has been in charge since the start of September, yet there has been no change in the BBC propaganda. It actually seems to be getting worse.

    File on 4 This afternoon : Prog about endemic VAT fraud in Leicester
    All the businessmen of course had Asian names.

    The 2 investigators set out to find the slaves
    but seem to have got sidetracked
    There was a mere mention of an east European worker who says she gets £7/hour but got £2.50/hr at the start
    FFS at the start you are training , you don’t get full pay.

    They recon 70-80% of the Leicester firms are running the VAT scam

    You get a £10K order from Boohoo etc. they then get a subcontractor to do it for £9K, and pay in cash
    But they use a created on paper company to do the paperwork , billing Boohoo £10K plus £2K VAT
    So your paper company has £3K in the bank
    You then put that money in your own account
    and after a year declare your paper company bankrupt.

    The thing is I think they said that some of the firms manufacturing for Boohoo are actually owned by the brothers of the BooHoo guy.
    Kamani family.

    Fake news and data lies: how to win an election
    Amol Rajan discusses conspiracy theories and rogue data science with Jill Lepore and Richard Evans.”

    Jill Lepore looks back at how algorithms that were supposedly able to forecast and influence human behaviour gained huge currency in the 1960s, and what happens when they were allowed to develop unchecked.

    Sir Richard Evans is one of the world’s leading authorities on Nazi Germany. In The Hitler Conspiracies: The Third Reich and the Paranoid Imagination, Evans investigates key conspiracy theories that flourished at the time and still continue to arouse debate. Through painstaking research and evidence-based argument he reasserts the boundary between truth and fiction, and looks at why fake news takes hold.

    I can imagine them saying that Trump’s narratives are FakeNews
    and not the media’s Conspiracy Theories about Russia getting Trump elected.

      BBC Moaning Predictable Emole

      ***

      ‘Je suis Samuel’

      Large rallies have been held across France to honour the teacher murdered in an apparent Islamist terror attack on Friday. Prime Minister Jean Castex told huge crowds in Paris the country was not afraid and would not be divided. Demonstrations were also held in Lille, Toulouse, Strasbourg, Marseille and elsewhere.

      Samuel Paty was beheaded after showing controversial cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to his pupils during a class about freedom of speech. His killer, an 18-year-old man named as Abdoulakh A – who had no apparent connection with the teacher or the school – was shot dead by police.

      ***

      FYI, BBC, cartoons only become ‘controversial’ when made so by nutters backed by their media PR agencies.

        And the BBC continue to use the intentionally misleading term ‘the Prophet Muhammad’. No. An acceptable term might be ‘the Muslim Prophet Muhammad’. He’s not a prophet to Christians, Jews, Sikhs, Hindus, Buddhists or people of any other religious persuasion, or those with none at all. The BBC are indulging in the patronising deference that’s inherent in woke liberalism.

        \\ As I understand it, the teacher asked if anyone was Muslim, told them what he was going to do, and asked students if they wanted to leave. Muslim boys left, girls stayed.

        He then showed the class, as far as I understand it, the ‘Danish cartoons’ and some Charlie Hebdo cartoons. //

      The simmering bile of the liberati crowd is almost a cult now. I wonder if this holy response was in fact triggered by some loaded questions put to them by a BBC-ite.

      Such as “Mr Welby, do you agree with the Government breaking international law?”

      In fact there is not really such a thing as international law, there are only agreements. If there were such laws, the UN would be moving in troops for instance to halt the white genocide in South Africa for one!

    Our liberties are bought dear and sold cheap. Looks as though our liberal press are more than happy for our liberties to be taken away, just so long as the bribe is big enough. The Times leads with: ‘Millions for Manchester to buy off corona revolt’ The giveaway newspaper the Metro appropriately features a picture of a plaintive-looking Andy Burnham looking for a feebie and in opposition to a constipated-looking Michael Gove: ‘We need help… Burnham calls for Commons to break the impasse…’ or as they might say in football – it’s going to be begging bowls (rather than handbags) at dawn.

    The FT warns: ‘Europe’s second Covid wave raises threat of double dip recession’ – and, mind you, not a scare quote in sight in that headline. Take note BBC. So much for our wealth.

    The Telegraph wakes up the damage that covid mania is doing to our health: ‘”Protect the NHS” leaves patients paying the price. Effects of covid advice laid bare as hospital admissions for serious illnesses fall by up to 90 per cent’ – the slogan “Protect the NHS” is quite rightly put into scare quotes in that headline.

    The Times notices: ‘Exodus of male teachers leaves boys without role models’

    No such discouragement for the girls these days. Well, you do have to laugh and here’s: ‘Our laugh story’ in the Mirror (but also in the Express) ‘Julie Walters on her amazing friendship with Victoria Wood’ and there’s a huge photo of BBC stalwart Jenni Murray on the front page of the Telegraph: ‘Dame Jenni Murray will appear on ITV’s “The Real Full Monty on Ice” – please, no.

    The Telegraph also features: ‘Spy agencies want leak suspect charged’ – this is the fallout from the publication of anti-Trump sentiments expressed by the UK’s ambassador to the US and there having been leaked by a civil servant. Hmmm… what would James Bond do? Or even George Smiley? Methinks they wouldn’t just have an impotent moan about it in the papers.

    Today’s most apocalyptic weather forecast comes in the Daily Star: ‘Whiteout 15 days of snow and storms 500 mile “Atlanic Vortex” sparks half-term hell’ – phew!

    Today’s most pointless empty gesture newspaper campaign comes in the Daily Mirror: ‘Remembrance Sunday we stand with you. All party leaders back Mirror campaign for a national two-minute doorstep silence’

    What politician in their right mind wouldn’t swap two hours looking gum standing about in the autumn chill grasping an unwieldy wreath, for a quick two minute job at the front door posing for the clip to go on Twitter?

    The Guardian does a little cultural appropriation of Austaralian Aboriginal culture with its headline: ‘”Boomerang” offspring are here to stay as prospects evaporate’

    The favourite newspaper of our teachers had to say something about what happened in France the other day to one of their own. They are most careful in their highly neutral headline concerning the latest islamist terror outrage in France: ‘Paris attack. Huge march of solidarity after murder of teacher’.

    Should he have shown those cartoons to his pupils? The Left tend to say no, it was a mistake. It was offensive. He should have known better. He should have moderated his right to free speech.

    From cartoons to Carton. For some reason I’m reminded of the words of a fictional character who lost his head in France. Dickens’ Sydney Carton: “It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.”

    Our liberties are bought dear and sold cheap.

    “TikTok has removed a number of videos after a BBC investigation showed creators were posting anti-Trump material without disclosing that they were paid for by a marketing company.
    Potentially millions of young TikTok users will not understand that some of the fun, quirky skits they are seeing are being paid for or supported by political interests.”

    But if young voters don’t understand that they might be targets of paid propoganda, then perhaps they are not ready to have the vote, that or the BBC patronising them here.

    Aslt mentions ‘Europe’s second covid wave’

    I was looking through worldometer last night and the UK per capita is far from the worst in Europe.

    True. Germany has again very low (suspicious?) levels. But Benelux, Poland, Italy, France etc etc are all very high and all have subtly different ‘solutions’.

    But there is little international travel just now, so how come the countries are rising in parallel? Is it as simple as schools and Unis going back and the colder weather? Nothing from the BBC on any of that when government embarrassment is the top priority.

    We don’t know anyone among our contacts in favour of a national lockdown. Boris’s pick-and-mix looks messy and opens him up to charges of inconsistency and endless political attack, but it’s not that far from other country approaches and is probably the best of a bad job. Providing people and businesses stick to the rules, of course.

    For interest and a more informed and rounded debate….

    https://lockdownsceptics.org/what-sage-got-wrong/

    ‘If, like me, you’re sure that the pandemic, as a ghastly public health event, is nearly over in UK, you will probably be with me in sheer astonishment and frustration that SAGE, the Government and 99% of the media maintain the fiction that this continues to be the biggest public health emergency in decades. ‘

    ‘Dr Mike Yeadon has a degree in biochemistry and toxicology and a research-based PhD in respiratory pharmacology. He has spent over 30 years leading new medicines research in some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, leaving Pfizer in 2011 as Vice President & Chief Scientist for Allergy & Respiratory. That was the most senior research position in this field in Pfizer. Since leaving Pfizer, Dr Yeadon has founded his own biotech company, Ziarco, which was sold to the worlds biggest drug company, Novartis, in 2017.

    Abstract

    SAGE made – and continues to make – two fatal errors in its assessment of the SAR-CoV-2 pandemic, rendering its predictions wildly inaccurate, with disastrous results. These errors led SAGE to conclude that the pandemic is still in its early stages, with the vast majority (93%) of the UK population remaining susceptible to infection and that, in the absence of more action, a very high number of deaths will occur.

    Error 1: Assuming that 100% of the population was susceptible to the virus and that no pre-existing immunity existed.
    Error 2: The belief that the percentage of the population that has been infected can be determined by surveying what fraction of the population has antibodies.

    Both of these points run entirely counter to known science regarding viruses and to a significant amount of evidence, as I will demonstrate. The more likely situation is that the susceptible population is now sufficiently depleted (now 28%) and the immune population sufficiently large that there will not be another large, national scale outbreak of COVID-19. Limited, regional outbreaks will be self-limiting and the pandemic is effectively over. This matches current evidence, with COVID-19 deaths remaining a fraction of what they were in spring, despite numerous questionable practices, all designed to artificially increase the number of apparent COVID-19 deaths.’

      Very interesting article.
      My simplistic gripe about SAGE is that none of them have any skin in the game.
      All public sector with rock solid job security, on full pay and pensions.
      We could be in lockdown for months and they would be themselves barely affected, just putting their money in the bank or paying off the mortgage early, as foreign holidays are out.
      A broader range of non groupthink opinion would be most welcome.
      It is just possible that Boris has twigged this intuitively but lacks the scientific grounding to challenge them with sufficient self-confidence.

    ‘People like us’, by Hashi Mohammed, is the Book of the Week on the now almost entirely propagandistic R4.
    At 29, a lawyer in the UK, this Somalian ‘refugee’ does not show any signs of gratitude, but merely a litany of whingeing and complaints, including about middle-class and white privilege.
    He came out of poverty. So did I. His parents did not take him to museums etc. to give him that rich cultural experience. Nor did mine. He was bored during the holidays as there was only football and games. I had only the football; this was before electronic games.
    But I wasn’t bored as I got into books and read a lot. I had friends who helped me get into scouting (white privilege?) I got no pocket money, so worked, packing shelves. I worked as a sales rep in the day and as an English teacher at night to get into Uni, and spent many, many years paying off the loans afterwards.
    Now I listen to ‘victims’ who became ‘refugees’ and actually landed with their bums in the butter. I too lived in a damp, rat-infested dump, and -what’s more, it wasn’t given to me by the council; I had to pay for it.
    I am nevertheless grateful for the opportunities the UK has given me in an age where you had to take the initiative to better yourself, to work hard, to expect nothing on a silver platter, to DEMAND nothing.
    People like me are white, however, and -given the current obsession with ‘migrants’ ,I fear that white, working class youngsters – especially if they are male- are now losing out, and indirectly ‘being punished’.

      Yep FNW…that’s the problem…most of the blacktivists have no idea, or don’t care as they press their points, that white people have exactly the same problems or experiences. Most people, of all classes, don’t have this imagined endless and vast rich cultural experience that he thinks is his right and that all middle-class whiteys get. Most people probably went to school, came home, watched some telly, played with their mates and did it all again the next day…with a very rare trip to somewhere out of the norm….unless you live in London you’re not going to see all those museums more than once in all likelihood.

      When the BBC wheels in the Afua Hirsches[not just her initials she shares with Hitler] and they complain about being asked where they come from or people want to touch their hair…it’s just normal…everyone is asked where they come from and if they had unusual hair it’d get commented on….gingers for instance….grow a beard and check the comments. They then complain that no-one is interested in them…but when they do show interest it’s racism…’othering’ them. They don’t want people to mention their blackness and yet they want to be ‘Black’ and for people to recognise their ‘uniqueness’ and be treated differently…..want you to recognise and acknowledge their African heritage but, er, just don’t ask where they come from.

      A while back the BBC wheeled in yet another of these people who decide that the race industry is a goldmine that never stops giving….Amanda Khozi Mukwashi who has written a book…‘But Where Are You Really From?’…channelling her anger and frustration that white people ask her where she is from….however…her own biog on the Christian Aid site where she is CEO[Blacks are never in the top jobs are they?] tells us….

      ‘Born in the UK and of Zambian heritage, Amanda is a committed Christian and member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.’

      That’s so racist mentioning her Zambian heritage.

      Black History Month should be targeted at informing Blacks more about how Whites live and what their experiences are rather than lecturing Whites about how brilliant Blacks really are….thus they might find out that what they insist is racism is in fact part of normal everyday life for whites…asking where you come from is not racist, being interested in your hair or how you look or your culture or clothes is not racist. It’s normal interest and life.

        Furious that such a programme should be given air time. What history do they have? All based no doubt on slavery as from the 17th Cent, nothing I suspect will be shown as to how the black people sold their own into slavery to the arab traders a few thousand years back and still continue to do so. What have the actually done to enrich society? What have they invented, produced or via their own efforts manufactured that has helped the world?
        They are the tribe that accuse all whites of racsim and yet they are the biggest recisits in all they do-yet now, every advertisement, every TV programme shows an even number of black people-they are well served as a minority.

        Pug, this business of ‘where are you from’ will never end while the UK is predominantly white. Its in the psyche of everyone around the world of having an image of who lives where. e.g. black people /Africa, blonde blue eyed / Scandinavia, latino / Mexico, S.America, nicely tanned / Italy, blue eyed flat skulled or heavy set dark features /Eastern European. The Uk – white. U.S.A / black and white. India / brown . Australia white/aborigine.

        Or am I wrong ? Admittedly people are now living everywhere, but in the main when we have communities who identify as British Caribbean or British Muslim, then its hard to think of them as hardcore ‘British’ that most of us have grown up with.

        Jewish people always ask a Jew they haven’t met before, ‘Where are you from?’ It is usually followed by, ‘Do you know x who lives there….’

        And many others do the same. You meet a new person and you think you hear a Geordie accent, and you have lived in Newcastle, you might well ask, ‘where are you from?’ It isn’t a racist question but just trying to find some common ground from where you can chat.

        If a black person wants to find something racist, they can. But what they are doing is separating themselves from the rest of humanity. I want to treat everyone the same. Pity those black people who don’t want that.

          Deb,
          “…… trying to find some common ground from where you can chat.” Yes, absolutely, that’s the crux. But few “Diversity” advocates understand that the normal average Brit, can share nothing with the savages the Government imposes on us – daily.

      Sadly Fake each generation has its own definition of ‘poverty. My Granny born in 1899, and the eldest of 13, slept head to toe with her siblings and had bread and dripping for breakfast. My parents, born in in the 1920’s endured their upbringing in the war years. I was born in the late 40’s and only had presents at Christmas and birthdays, and new clothes once a year at Whitsuntide when Mum would get a new Provident Cheque that she paid off through the year.

      The poverty that the past couple of generations have ‘endured’ my Granny wouldn’t recognise, despite food banks in existence, the latest mobile are in evidence and a good tele on the wall !

    Labour’s latest stance is the real Old Socialist labour…better Red than Dead….they won’t impose a lockdown which is designed to protect people and keep them alive unless they get the money….playing politics with people’s lives in order to try and win back the Red Wall….rather you die than you vote Tory.

    Curious how they demanded local control of local lockdown decisions a very short while ago telling us central control was bad, and now they say local lockdowns don’t work and want to impose a national lockdown…imposed by central government.

    Shame Nick Robinson didn’t get around to ask Labour’s Sean Fielding about that contradiction…..for example Burnham is refusing to impose the local lockdown, because they don’t work he claims, and yet not long ago he was urging his citizens to stay locked down and not go out enjoying life as the government lifted some restrictions….

    ‘This morning, Burnham described the lifting of restrictions in Bolton and Trafford as “completely illogical” and urged residents of those areas to ignore government advice and follow restrictions instead.’

    Labour’s approach is shambolic, shifty and, so far, unchallenged by the BBC which fails to question their two-faced approach.

      pug- I can’t help the sneaking feeling that Burnham is using his Manchester base to turn the pandemic into a point-scoring (and money -making) exercise for the Labour Party. It further serves a third purpose in being seen to split the Tories.
      I’m not sure how much Surkeer will like this sudden pop-upstart of what could easily turn out to be a challenge for the Labour leadership in the medium to long term! But Burnham has found himself on a solid wicket; if the Tories don’t dock-up (blackmail?) they could easily lose the progress they have made ‘in the North’. And Burnham the Bruiser/Brawler will then be looking like a better bet for Labour than the oily, suit-clad, second hand car salesman, they currently have in charge.

        FNW…definitely all politics…trying to win back the Red Wall by grandstanding…..though some might raise an eyebrow that he is so ready to exploit the population of Manchester as the ‘necessary murders’, the sacrifices [if he really beilieves C9 is that lethal] necessary for his career. If he believes that Covid19 is so deadly he would impose the lockdown regardless….but there he is holding out for the cash…….isn’t that what the BBC always tells us is so terrible about the US health service…need to flash the cash before they’ll treat you?

      working alongside the prog to build a false narrative that a trade deal with Trump will bring dangerous food standards to the UK
      ..even though Tories have always promised that any deal will ensure no substandard food is brought into Britain.

    Re Inflating Covid numbers thru poor NHS procedures
    Your granny gets the flu ..gets taken to hospital
    What do they do ? They put her in the red zone, the Covid ward and give her a Covid test
    After 48 hours test comes back … it’s *negative*, so they do the second test
    While they are waiting for the results she shows clear Covid symptoms
    .. what’ happened is that she’s caught Covid from the Covid ward.

    BTW here’s a clip from The Age UK woman talking about the effect of lockdown on pensioners

      There have been a number of ‘public ‘ cases of hospital wards giving non virus cases the virus through bad hygiene and transmitting NHS staff . I saw that figures say there has been a 90?% yoy reduction in admissions – can you blames anyone ?

      But what are those 1.7 million NHS employees doing?

      Congratulations on getting out of hospital . I hope you are ok – as with Halifax who reported that he has the Chinese Virus last week .

      I’m not a user of the MSM /BBC at the moment but am thinking of returning to it and treating the whole thing as a kind of sick comedy – or a game show where you can play

      Spot the white man
      Spot the hetero
      Or
      Spot the dog ….

      It a game for all the family – not that the family unit seems to be what it was ….

    The 56 yo woman had just over the legal alcohol limit had cycled in the heavy rain through the cemetery in the afternoon and fallen off her bike and lay there with an injured leg.
    A guy found her and tried to help. He had no phone and ran to the street and then home to phone the police.
    2 police were sent out but they said said they couldn’t find her.
    A dog walker found her body the next day.

    Nope they are running about average
    Red bars is 2020 : you can see the first Covid Wave
    Green bars is 2018 : you can see the start of the year had a flu wave and then it stabilised.

    BTW raw deaths is not good metric, cos a young person dying is not the same as an old person dying.
