    Fed, just to let you know that something has happened to the ‘edit’ facility on this site. I find I can make one edit in the 15 minutes allowed but no more after that.

    I will have to be on time with my copy and have it in good order, won’t I? No more Bojo-ing for me. 😉

      Up2 – your claim will be countered by mr ‘that can’t happen ‘ – other site changes include the return of the cut and paste trolls as well as the trolls desperate to say someone is wrong .

      I think I even saw a troll virologist explaining about viruses mutating or not –

      I have to confess I’m now at the stage of scannng for badness as well as not reading very long cut and paste stuff people put up not directly about the BBC .

      The same goes for anything with a picture or video attached …

      My favourite one was a 21 minute video of some bloke in Milton Keynes filming a covid test site and looking for an argument with the third world security . After that I thought – ‘no more ‘….no doubt a troll will ‘check the archives ‘- I think it was about September ….

    Some might say that the coincidence of a new virus at the very end of the EU trade negotiations is just that – a coincidence .

    Others might think that the Uk government / EU is trying to soften up public opinion to accept the coming sell out –

    – the coming pictures of panic buying – rationing – and empty shelves will be fully deployed by the BBC as Project Fear – together with ‘key’ remainers …

    … and of course some brexiter politician will be caught breaching tier 4

      Porn sites are under attack apparently wimmin dont like them ,apart from the fact that most content is provided by (normal) wimmin, those without purple hair, and your site is under attack

      where will it end ? opinions and choices are becoming more limited by the day

      and I thought it would be an alien invasion that did this, but it seems all it took was a Tony Blair education to convince a generation that stupidity was sense

      that me now is the most important thing

      that I have the right to demand never to be offended yet my opinion is the most important thing

      and I can pick and choose what is offence at my leisure whilst witch hunting onTwitter

      and Jews bad but racism bad ???? how does that work ?

      Another coincidence is the site of the new ‘virulent’ strain. No mileage in the north – the contrived divisiveness has done the Red Wall trick there anyway – so London and SE evens things out nicely, with the added bonus of total chaos orchestrated at heart of cross-channel trade. My, how our ‘European friends’ will be laughing.

    .. these guys were even against Charlie Hebdo”

    : The Positives tally
    : The death tally

    In the former they had reverted back to limiting the count to serious cases only.
    That isn’t evil cos it allows you to spot trends.
    Otherwise what happens is the positive tally keeps climbing , but that is an effect of increased testing picking up very mild cases or even over counting.

    Covid-19: New coronavirus variant ‘probably’ in Northern Ireland

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-55390371

    Perhaps they thought the EU had accidentally overlooked that, they are praying for Border Guards to appear! Probably to make bloody sure that no UK trucks manage to sneak across to Europe via Eire.

    I think it’s time the new “variant” was given it’s own name due to it’s importance, maybe “Brexit” variant?

    I would dearly love it if some leading scientific body with balls would come out and say outright that this is total rubbish, all viruses mutate over time by their nature.

    I for one now need to see death graphs split into original and new improved variant flavours from now on, with clinical proof.

    This is a despicable lie being spread for one purpose only which is why only the UK is reportedly affected which is la-la-Land and makes absolutely no sense at all and you don’t need to be a scientist to figure that one out…

    If Boris swallows this garbage he’s a gonner as far as I am concerned from here on in. He’s being stabbed in the back by his own “trusty” advisors and is now done up like a kipper.

    BBC & SKY NEWS this morning was a satisfying watch.

    Despite all the best efforts of the idiotic presenters to manipulate the so called experts, it was a disaster.

    Time after time they tried coheres the experts into slagging of the government in its handling of the latest Tier system, but brilliantly none of the experts would have saying time after time the Government was doing the right thing and had no choice..

    And to reiterate this a new pole has been released confirming what the experts were saying..

    Utterly incomprehensible that this haphazard government should tell the world we have a new rapidly spreading variant virus-so Europe jumps at the chance to shut the UK off completely-what a load of plonkers we have in the cabinet /Sage. Of course we all now know that this new virus development was known to the powers a couple of months ago! So why was nothing done then to tackle the issue? Frankly one could be forgiven, were there to be tens of thousands of people massing outside Parliament to demand that the scientists collaberating in this pandemic Panic be fired and preferably inprisoned for a period. From all that I have read on the subject and by many notable medical/scientific peopl;e we the people are not being shown the true measure of this virus and certainly not as far as the rushed vaccine is concerned. Shambolic-would be too easy, shameful would be nearer.

    “Not surprisingly, the Government’s scaremongering about the “mutant” strain prompted other European countries to start imposing travel bans on visitors from the UK. Apparently, this entirely predictable reaction wasn’t something the UK Government had predicted. ”

    and yet where is the evidence

    “Carl Heneghan, Professor of Evidence Based Medicine at Oxford University’s Nuffield Department of Primary Care, expressed scepticism over the 70% figure.

    He said: “I’ve been doing this job for 25 years and I can tell you can’t establish a quantifiable number in such a short time frame.”

    He added “every expert is saying it’s too early to draw such an inference”.”

    This is a peerage granted by the Monarchy in this Country which you greedily accepted. So this also would mean nothing to you right?

    Thank you media ! in your rush to tell the world there will be shortages of fresh fruit and vegetables, what happens ? this….

    Yesterday I just walked into my local co-op for my Sunday papers, no problems, with a mostly empty car park. Today, there’s a long queue standing outside. I turned the car round and left. Now whether its management deciding to let in a few at a time, or the idiot public panic buying everything in sight I don’t know, but as we cant exactly feed the 5000 this Christmas, then I’m happy as long as I’ve got bacon, eggs and a loaf of bread in the cupboard !! I’ve got a feeling we’ll be seeing overflowing bins of unused food again after Christmas, like we saw on the first lockdown. Crackers ! in the stupid sense of the word.

    Boston Lincs
    19 year old shop worker Hikmet Maez jailed for 3 years for killing customer Gediminas Vaitikus (43) with a one punch assault

    Maez had first refused to serve him.
    Then as he walked out to another shop, Maez followed him there and then picked up a glass bottle and threw it at his victim.
    Mr Vaitkus managed to block this and continued walking
    However, Maez continued to follow him before kicking him in the leg and punching him in the face.
    The punch to the face caused Mr Vaitkus to fall to the ground and bang his head causing a fatal head injury.

    From the TPA this week:
    Have ago at the WOKE quiz. What does it all cost?
    And why it had to go.. (Thank Liz Truss, my star for this Christmas).
    https://www.taxpayersalliance.com/woke_whitehall_quiz

    And next up. BBC why it has to reformed for a modern age.
    ‘Worth an excerpt” Thanks TPA. It needs to be said. The combined waste of the BBC is legendary. Its time we were heard.


    We’ve railed against wasteful spending at the BBC throughout our 16 year history. We’ve also challenged the organisation on its establishment outlook, that usually ignores typical taxpayers and tends towards an ever-bigger state.

    Lots of people are open to the idea of a much smaller state-funded BBC, adhering to past principles of high culture and serious news. But that’s not what the BBC is – and hasn’t been for sometime. It competes in the commercial market using taxpayers’ money; it has helped kill off local media outlets with its dominant regional stations; and it wastes cash chasing a youth audience it has no hope of catching. It has lost the confidence of taxpayers.

    The licence fee is not fit for the 21st century. With drastic technological change and the myriad ways in which people watch the media, the current model looks increasingly outdated. Last year, the number of licences sold fell for the first time, with 37,000 fewer households buying one than the previous year. Little wonder, when consumer habits are changing – and quickly.

    So in January 2020, we launched our Axe the Tax campaign to scrap the BBC licence fee. It’s time taxpayers’ stop being forced to support the BBC!

    The licence fee is guaranteed until 2027. Winning this battle won’t happen overnight. We have to start making the case now for changes, calling out the BBC and Channel 4 models and empowering politicians and commentators to take a stand. Everything from preparing Channel 4 for commercial ownership to decriminalising the licence fee is up for grabs, and the fight to win these battles has to start now.

    Have the BBC considered the following? They do so like to stoke the political fires in the US.

    70 million Republicans feel angry and let down. This is a force not to be dismissed out of hand. After all, the truth is what people believe.

    The Democrats from day one in 2016 insisted that the election had been fixed by the Russians. Now the Democrats say the election cannot be fixed.

    The US media and the BBC needs to tread carefully – but they won’t.

    Have just read the Xmas edition of the Mensa Magazine.

    Pamela Austin says about BBC News in the magazine. “There is definitely a hidden agenda to lower moral, incite distrust and of course to discredit the attempts of politicians to make life safer, bearable and sustainable” “It is quite obvious that the remit is no longer to disseminate news of what is happening in the world, but to impose opinions, instil disquiet, exaggerate where more drama is perceived to be required, and provide information which will give a distorted view when considered necessary”

    Also according to Junior Mensa members, the BBC are about to repeat an error which sparked a complaint from Mensa members in 2009. According to the Radio Times, Page 201, Royal Institute Christmas Lectures. Professor Chris Jackson reveals that what drives these (Climate) changes is the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. So The complaint to the BBC was about the Climate Change program “Hot Planet” transmitted in December of 2009. The complaint was “Ice Core data shows that CO2 levels rise about 800 years after Global temperatures rise, and therefore this fact makes the whole Documentary misleading and biased”. The context and intention of the program misleads the viewer into thinking that the CO2 increase causes the warming. It was suggested that this was a serious and specific breach of the BBC’s Editorial Guidelines, because ice core data shows that CO2 levels rise about 800 years after a warming. The reason for this is that there is a 800 year thermal lag in the deep oceans and that the Oceans dominate the system with a mass 275 times that of the Atmosphere, so the ratio of CO2 in the Atmosphere/Oceans is dependent upon the heat in the Oceans. This means that 84 percent of the increase in carbon dioxide was natural, and caused by the Medieval warm period which peaked 800 years ago.

    So how on earth has such an idiot been promoted to a Professorship? Well apparently Chris Jackson must be Britain’s first Black Professor of Geology. Other candidates must have been unfortunate in being both White and more knowledgeable about the subject than some of the children in the Royal Institute audience.

    And that’s why they say its worse in Britain than any other country.

      Richard -I think my comment about BBC News earlier ticks the box on the attitude they have with the news reader saying ‘chaos at Dover ‘ and then the reporter on the ground saying ‘not chaos ‘ – I don’t even watch BBC news anymore – also

      – I go against the whole global warming school because I do not believe mankind understands how the climate works and the influence of – say – solar storms – on it because we do not have reliable detailed records .
      The arrogance of the certainty will be looked back on in time to come with a ‘ how could they be so dumb ?’

        On solar storms, the records go back to the 18th Century and with movements of the barycentre relative to the centre of the Sun, and using the predicted movements and known masses of the planets, means that as with a predicted mini-ice-age, in future they could predict weather beyond that of the 40 days of Piers Corbyn using Kepler’s laws of planetary motion.

        Certainty in science comes from retrospective analysis. Isaac Newton did it without computers. But that’s why the most important revelation I have seen on the telly about the Global warming scam was when Peter Lilly asked about retrospective computer runs. The reality is that they have never done any retrospective computer runs, because it would destroy the whole mad man-made carbon dioxide scam.

          Richard
          It sort of proves my point – what about geothermal activity in the oceans – or the effect of volcano emissions on the upper atmosphere …. I got to A level science level a long time ago and have not read the literature .what does current science know of these things ?

          One of my degrees was in ‘advanced common sense ‘ and hope that’s enough. Yes it’s good conserving hydrocarbons but not for the sake of cutting carbon dioxide . If only to screw the Arabs and Russians ….

          I have zero knowledge in this, but I guess for me what seems oddly ignored is the fact that the earth is ~4.5 billion years old, and we seem to be making ‘factual’ conclusions on, at most, a couple of hundred years worth of data. If this was a clinical trial of some sort we’d say the sample size is waaaay too small to derive any conclusions whatsoever. That’s why the idea of global warming seems like more of a religion than a science-based belief to me.

      Richard,

      Yr. first para.

      Call it what it is, ‘Marxism’. That’s the right label. And imported from Beijing.

    News-watch is preparing a detailed report on BBC Ideas because in microcosm it indicates the scale of the rot which has overtaken the corporation, and shows starkly that any idea of impartiality has now been abandoned in the pursuit of advocacy of ‘progressive’ ideas. Over the coming weeks, we will be highlighting in further TCW blogs other issues raised by our analysis.

      10 million quid is small change to the BBC, they didn’t need to earn it so it’s easy come, easy go and allows them to wallow in their self satisfaction and gratification-fest.

      Honestly, I sometimes can’t work out whether they’re massively woke or massively racist. I’m beginning to think the two actually go hand in hand. These people are most often just patronising the BAME community – spelling things out to them like you would a child. Think I’d prefer their disdain to their pity.

      The troll said ‘ah that Radio 3 show is not all brown people it’s 15% old white people’

      …One thing it is not so much as us the public who divide the world into white/brown but the BBC itself.
      The BBC already has an exclusively brown national radio station Asian Network.
      therefore one would expect the number of BAME on national networks to be lower,
      cos people can’t be in two places at once.
