Midweek Thread 16th December 2020

Deal or No Deal Part – Whatever – thankfully for us the BBC continues to self harm . This time they’ve taken on a boxer who doesn’t want to be a ‘sports personality ‘ .

    1, Reading the Daily Mail today, I spotted a piece that stated, 50% of British Asians,(I know it should be Britons of Asian descent, but that’s what it said) and 33% of British blacks are suffering from a Vitamin D deficiency. Hands up, who pinched the effnix Vitamin D, and will there be riots till they get it back?

    2, Has anyone been taking notice of the Johnny Walker whiskey advert? For Johnny Walker Black Label, the ad company are using a black female to promote said whiskey. Will we see an American Indian to promote the Red Label? They will be snookered when it comes to the Green and Blue Labels.

      To be fair at least the government tried its best to remove
      this inequality in Vit D wealth over the summer.
      By using it’s lockdown zealots to fly drones in the sky, tape up park benches and beach shame the greedy bronzed sun bathers.

      Was in ours too.

      No coincidence they are now rammed with BBC-funded ‘local democracy’ reporters.

      Just checked back.

    I thought Stevo was on the BBC protected list?

    Still, once a BBC ‘Anger Over’ Khukri is unsheathed, it must taste blood.

    A bbc her… well, a Dem pol has brain farted a clear bit of non Dettol-injecting genius that can only see every MSM journo taking a knee in awwww, publicly, and then being retweeted by Lurch.

    I am simply now fascinated at how organised their rapid reaction social media teams are, albeit rivalling boxes of rocks for blatant and obvious, and dumb.

      Bbc not telling the full story as usual
      Not repeating the phrase he said ie
      his friends nickname ..
      Now he’s facing maybe a 3 match ban

    St. Rashford: ‘Sometimes we didn’t even have a loaf of bread’ – https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/55338104.

    One of the most, if not THE most, benefits system in the world, and yet you can’t afford a 50 pence loaf of bread. Astonishing. Call in Unicef or… perhaps ask mother and father to stop spending other people’s hard earned money on fags and alcohol?

      @RedPill Rashford’s father was not with his family
      So the state paid for his Mum’s benefits.

      Rashford’s father moved back into his life after he grew up
      and is his manager now.

    An article on the BBC’s website about David Attenborough is 90% about animals and the places he has visited over the years.

    The sub-editors though choose to headline it as “Sir David Attenborough on Joe Biden, Christmas wrapping… and flamingos” while the home page flags it as “Attenboroogh: I cheered when Biden was elected.”

    Bias on top of bias on top of bias.
