    Long story about a female Chinese agent infiltrating the California political scene from 2011-2015 using sex and fundraising.
    The FBI got to know , so the story came out of their surveillance work.
    I guess you wouldn’t know who was really caught and who was playing along.

    Looks like we may be about to get some help with our battle against the woke, biased publicly funded monolith, the BBC…

    Could Netflix and Sky start offering public broadcasting content?

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-55230161

    Ofcom are a bit worried that this might put pressure on the likes of the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, STV, SC4 and Channel 5

    Bloody hope so!

    They mention that programs like The Great British Bake Off might suffer which is one of their least offensive and biased productions, and this simply for the reason I believe to throw a frightener to fans of the show.

    They don’t mention any threat to partisan political slots or the main news slots that the BBC use relentlessly to push their left, diverse and woke agenda of course which ought to be the main reason the outfit exists all.

    I usually avoid the tiresome Q and A session when Boris stumbles out with the Chuckle Brothers like the plague…pun intended… They’re awful. There’s the usual tiresome questions by the usual tiresome journalists. It’s gone on for months. We could all write their scripts for them. It’s both boring and irritating!

    However, I can’t wait for the next one…

    That big mouthed bint, Beth, her with the huge mouth and bright red lipstick (like a human letterbox) is surely in for one almighty comeuppance. This ghastly creature is rude, opinionated and sneering. She’s a deeply unpleasant bully.

    So, next time she asks the PM the predictable snotty question, he can come back with a ferocious (verbal) right hook.

    They’ve already removed surly Burley from the air-waves to save her from further humiliation. Perhaps we can get shot of rancid Rigby as well.

    Oh, if only…

    Just listening to an extraordinary rant by sanctimonious BBC sports presenter on 5 Live condemning the ‘perpetrators’ who dared to boo at Milwall match…not news but opinions and preachy lectures……BBC has come to the end of its usefulness.

      I mentioned this earlier about a commentary last night where it was more social preaching than a footy commentary – I put it down to the climate of fear within the BBC as grown up white experienced footy commentators are replaced by coloured token kidults ….
      Rainbow laces – a minutes silence / clapping for someone / thing – kneeling down – then a drinks break …..

      … a bit of preaching to inferior listeners and the crowd – a couple of pennies worth from some coloured underachiever pundit and then a bit of VAR ……
      It was my last contact with the BBC … but that is going too – talk sport is the same by the way …..

    Have you ever fallen out with someone or ended a relationship because of their political beliefs?

    Have you ever fallen out with family because of it?

    Dawn French has revealed how she once DUMPED a boyfriend after finding out he was a Tory!

    Should political beliefs matter in relationships? What’s the best reason you’ve come up with for ending a relationship?

    The BBC has found more footy racism – this time it’s some French team against Jonnie Turk where a fourth official allegedly used a ‘racial ‘ term against someone and the Jonnie Turk team walked off the pitch …. millwall supporters will get the blame – of course ….
    But at least a bbc favourite – Man U – are being given a footy lesson by some kraut team – no mention of rainbow laces of taxpayers kiddie feeding because of inadequate parenting …

    Millwall fans clap players holding anti racism banner instead of taking the knee .

    Usual BBC puff piece including this line

    Players, officials and staff at Premier League and EFL games have been taking a knee pre-match since football restarted in June in order to show their support for the Black Lives Matter movement for racial equality.

    Good old BBC . BLM movement for racial equality !!!!!!!!

    Not defunding the police, ending capitalism, rioting, looting etc , it’s just a movement for racial equality !! Ok then BBC 👍

    Where have the Lefty animal rights and RSPCA people been until now?
    This will bring down the price of Welsh Lamb. It is much sought of in Europe, as is our fish .
    The government should tool up now and build up our fishing fleet.
    We will then get ‘British cod’ caught off our fishing grounds and sold locally instead of being brought in from the EU.

    Cambridge Uni Free Speech rules
    the Times reports that the culture of honour was impeding free speech. That the if people were treating a speaker as honourable
    that implies they support him
    So afraid of the mob they might not invite him in the first place, the ex beeboid Roger Mosey was involved in writing the rule that fellows should be “respectful” of others opinion.
    However this has the same problem.
    So an amendment saying fellows must have “tolerance” for other’ opinions , is likely to go ahead.

    The Times had an article about one of the main anti-deportation groups being a Marxist cult

    FFS they even use the Alinsky MO in their name
    “Movement for Justice By Any Means Necessary”
    yet the stars back them

    A celebrity-backed campaign to halt deportations of criminals to Jamaica has been seized on by a revolutionary group denounced by a former member as “cultish”.
    run by veteran campaigners from the Revolutionary Internationalist League (RIL), the British section of an organisation called the International Trotskyist Committee for the Political Regeneration of the Fourth International.

    While photographs of its protests highlight young black members,
    the key leaders are *two white Marxists*, Tony Gard, 79, and Karen Doyle, 46.
    Mr Gard has been involved in far-left politics since at least 1965 when he was elected a member of the national committee of the Young Socialists, a communist group

    The Times readers stick the boot in.
    https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/marxists-hijack-campaign-against-deportation-of-foreign-criminals-zdkcslkhw

    There’s an editorial as well, saying it’s wrong to equate with Windrush
    & explaining the same group hijacked Grenfell stuff as well.

      At the bottom the Times adds
      Facebook deleted hard left accounts and then put them back

      the accounts of more than 40 Socialist Workers Party organisers and 15 event pages were deleted in error.
      .. targeted by algorithms that remove hate speech from the platform.
      Facebook said: “It is never our intention to silence the voices of one particular community. These accounts and pages were removed in error and have been restored.”

      Yet FB almost always refuse to put back the accounts from righties excised in a similar manner.

    The left are depressing. But the plan so far has been successful. So we can expect more of the same next year. A brief Christmas respite before more of the same spiced with an Agenda that will make us all poor for life. Except those in Public jobs doing ‘business’.
    Collectivisation of the planet based on terms only the BBC recognise as ‘being believable.

    Interesting Video from Dr Vernon Coleman sums it up for me. The left think its all over. Globalism = Socialism = equality.
