    11am Talk radio news a voice says “I’m glad that Cummings is going
    in that Rose Garden press conference he treated the BRITISH PUBLIC with utter contempt”

    FFS no he didn’t : He treated the MEDIA SCUM with utter contempt

    I checked who was speaking
    “Guto Harri, former communications director to Boris Johnson when he was the Mayor of London”
    Talk Radio have put of a clip where he says
    “Cummings is a psychopath”
    … which was made just as smear , no evidence was offered
    FFS metroliberals want to police everyone elses unPC language, yet they think it’s OK to use such monstering labels themselves !

    Anyone would think that Guto is a very bitter Remoaner
    .. which he is

    A prevention zone aimed at stopping the spread of bird flu is now in place across England, Wales and Scotland following an outbreak at a farm in Herefordshire – the fifth in the UK this month.

    Some farmers are afraid they could lose their livelihoods – and if the birds have to be culled, it could lead to an even tougher Christmas for producers.

    Now Sadiq Khan tells Met Police they must ‘justify’ stop-and-searches on BAME suspects after ordering Cressida Dick to DOUBLE intake of ethnic minority recruits to 40%

    Sadiq Khan has ordered Met tears up 19% BAME target and double it by 2022
    Met has 15% BAME workforce – when city it serves is 40 per cent non-white
    Scotland Yard previously said it would need 100 years to achieve racial parity
    Commissioner Dick accepts plan and says force is ‘not free of discrimination’
    New action plan comes at the end of a year of protests by Black Lives Matter
    Half of all the BAME police officers in England and Wales work in the capital

      London is a bit strange, the workforce should reflect the diversity of the commute to work area
      not just the city boundary
      So 40% BAME is vast over representation

      You end up with a 60% BAME workforce at the O2 arena to reflect Greenwich/Lewisham population
      whereas the customers are 85% white cos they are coming from a wider area.

        I know youll find something to correct me on but i had a job in central government once which included trying to explain to some bright young ministerial lackies that the population of London wasnt constant – day – night – weekends – and that most ordinary londoners dont live in it – they live on the outskirts …

      Any workforce, and particularly that of the police, should be comprised of the best people for the job rather than being selected on the basic of discriminatory quotas.

          G-You should see our Londonistan Programme on BBC TV.
          The chief presenters are Riz Lateef, Asad Ahmad and Alice
          Bhandhukravi. As we indigenous Londoners are a relatively
          small minority in the capitol now.One can say that this
          programme is just about the only one on BBC TV that
          doesn’t use diversity and positive discrimination as it’s
          default position in presenting and reporting.

            Just as an appendage.We sat down for dinner at 1830 this evening.
            My wife had BBC 1 on just as the Londonistan programme
            was about to start. As I am paranoid about this programme.
            I said as usual”the police” as this is what Riz Lateef or
            Asad Ahmad often start the programme ,with some derogatory
            comment about the Metropolitan police . It stems from the time when Lateef all but used to eulogize about black
            gangster Mark Duggan. To be honest all that was missing
            in the studio was a statue of the criminal .
            So it was no surprise that Lateef DID start the programme
            with a rant against the police. To be fair she is only reading
            the scripts of her revolutionary anarchist Marxist editors.

      So now we can be certain that China’s release of the virus was a deliberate act of state policy with the objective of ‘redeeming’ Taiwan by politically neutralizing the US.

      A lot less risky than taking on the 7th Fleet; the trick will be to see if they can confine themselves after that. The younger generation of PLS generals will be the key.

    An important post from a sibling site poster Mac.

    http://isthebbcbiased.blogspot.com/2020/11/november-1st-open-thread.html#

    Interesting example of creating a narrative here:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-54908862

    Basically they’re trying to say that this Tory MP was slandering the North as uncultured. To do this, you start with a headline stating something he never said (Northerners prefer football to ballet), followed by a paraphrase of something he never said (People in the south of England enjoy opera and ballet but football clubs are what matter to those living further north), then voice criticism of the things he said even though we don’t actually know what he said yet.

    Finally at paragraph six we get the actual quotations. Then round off the article with excitable tweets that don’t actually address what he said. Job done.

          “What about the “Human Rights” of the people of Britain to defend themselves from invasion?” Quite so.

          Or to prevent themselves from being unfairly exploited?

          Trafficked illegals are usually a great cost to the taxpayer and can sometimes deprive another UK resident (who may in turn be a legal immigrant or son or daughter of a legal immigrant) of services and benefits. Who pays these ‘Human Rights’ lawyers? Not the client. Although they are wealthy enough because they have paid traffickers to get them into the UK illegally. No, it is the taxpayer who foots the bill.

          Or services are cut. And people suffer that way, including immigrants who are here legally.

    The usual suspects, again:

    Covid kills FIVE revellers who went to lockdown ‘street party’ with hundreds of people after funeral in Birmingham

    Paul Lankester said the city council had learned ‘anecdotally’ of the deaths

    ‘We’ve had a very serious incident in the last fortnight where we have taken action against a funeral director,’ he said in the meeting.

    ‘I’m not going to say where, when, how, who, what faith was involved.

    Mr Lankester also spoke about some funerals attracting crowds following announcements on social media – which led to one funeral being stopped.

    ‘I’m aware of all sorts of things that can go on social media, details of what’s happening – we’ve had that in the last week,’ he said.

    ‘When they realised that people were going to do it (be let in), we had bolts, padlocks cut at the funeral, at a burial at a cemetery.

    One mosque member questioned the issue of the Government not banning someone with Covid from attending a funeral of a family member as long as they are fully socially distanced.

        Absenteeism can be rife in the NHS. Mind you, if NHS nurses and doctors aren’t stressed when they listen to the BBC during the winter months they are going to be suffering stress before the end of any News bulletin.
