    chichi_nwanoku_324x486.jpg

    Somewhere, sometime on BBC radio last week we had an interview with the mixed-race double bassist Chi-chi Nwanoku(OBE).

    She’s had a brilliant and highly successful career….at first heading towards the Olympics as a runner before injury stopped her and she turned to music.

    At every turn she was picked out and mentored by white people who saw the potential in her…but it was interesting that this raised no comment at all from the BBC interviewer unlike any mention of any racism which is always a scar on British people and Britain as a whole…whites of course.

    Why can the BBC always denounce ‘Britain’ as nasty and racist for the actions of a tiny, tiny minority but fail to applaud the vast majority who not only don’t do such things but actually promote and cheer on non-whites just as they would any white person?

    Why is Britain nasty and racist for the actions of that tiny, tiny, unrepresentative mob of racists but not ‘tolerant and welcoming’ for the actions of the vast majority?

    Why is it that the BBC is determined to keep feeding non-whites the narrative that Britain is an entirely hostile and racist place and that they are not welcome here?

        It’s just a tag the BBC love, because once the word ‘victim’ is mentioned they follow the non-story and then cover it like a rash for ages! It’s easy for them, as they don’t have to work for anything.

        When they’re defunded, their ‘news’ channel will be made up of a crowd of useless kids crowing about silly things, and that will be the end of the whole sorry lot.

      pugnazious,

      Literally, “…some of my best friends are black” with the addition of, “and I deserve a round of applause for that”.

      From the same guy who argued that refusing to go to a dinner party if it involved sitting next to a black person is; “clearly not racist”, and who just a few months ago was telling ‘coon’ jokes.

    BBC News channel just had Sally Nugent interviewing Atlantic rower Jasmine Harrison.

    Every single question to Jasmine started with, “Jasime… tell me how you felt when….”. No technical questions, nothing about training or daily intake of calories. Just mindless questions asking for an emotional response.

    Even when Jasime described how her boat capsized a few days ago she said she had to be practical and check whether she or her boat was damaged and just deal with it. Nugent comes back with, “Jasime… how did you feel when…”

    The election is clearly on and the BBC is already laying the groundwork for a Labour victory run…you can bet your bottom dollar the course of the coronavirus pandemic in Britain will be gone over in forensic detail [aided by selected ‘experts’] and it will be made fully clear just how bad Boris and his Tory government were. Just listening to R4 now and Boris has had a terrible year apparently.

    Early last Thursday we had Ed Balls bouncing back into politics with a very friendly BBC interview in which he was allowed to get away with murder with what was in essence a party political broadcast. Brexit was, apparently, an exercise in imperialism with Britain trying to rebuild the Empire, and Boris’ failure to handle the coronavirus pandemic competently was because of this mindset….a mindset that said Britain is better and different to other countries and can go its own path…thus thousands died due to this neo-imperialist jingoism.

    Complete rubbish of course but the interviewer didn’t see anything wrong at all with the narrative.

    Just before the Balls we had a piece on climate change….apparently ‘mother earth is crying’….hmmmm…no…’mother earth’ doesn’t give a stuff if you, every animal, or the earth itself die or implode.

    Anthropomorphising is for children…but then that’s the target audience the BBC wants to capture and brainwash…and of course many Greens are child-like in their utopian idealism where we can all live with no heat or energy, no agriculture, no industry, no science and no interaction with nature at all.

    Previous to the ‘Skipping Sikh’ who refused to sing the BBC tune about systemic racism and colonialism being behind his distrust of vaccines we had a more reliable ‘wtiness’ who toed the line admirably and spouted the right stuff.

    Why don’t Bames want to get vaccinated?…note the BBC sees them as victims not sinister ‘anti-vaxxers’ as they would had they been white. This was supposed to be an exploration of the reasons for distrust but in fact seemed more about reinforcing those conspiracy theories about the vaccine being a White plot exploiting and experimenting on Blacks.

    Bames don’t trust the vaccines because trust has been eroded by systemic inequality due to racism….well…yeah…obviously!!!! LOL

    Bames are right to be suspicious because right from the start they were told they were more likely to die….the coronavirus was ‘racialised’ [lol…yeah it was…by the BBC et al] and alarm bells rang due to their lived experience as they were now prioritised for treatment….why were they being prioritised?…..they were being used to test the vaccine…just as Blacks have always been used in White experiments. The BBC always helpfully chipping in with confirmatory facts….the Tusgegee experiments in America and more black women die in childbirth than whites….must be racism no?

    Apparently misinformation is not the problem…the problem is that the government didn’t give out a clear message thus leaving a space for anti-vaxxers to spread…er…misinformation.

    The BBC approach is of course entirely unscientific, driven more by its own desire to find and root out non-existent racism than anything else. How many Bames take the flu jab or any other type of ‘white man’ voodoo? A good example of the hypocritical nonsense being promoted is the Maori bloke who declared he wouldn’t wear a ‘colonial noose’…a tie….whilst stood there in a cowboy hat, a western suit and wearing glasses in a western democratic institution…parliament. Never mind the fact that Bames work in vast numbers in the health service dishing out all this sinister western medicine.

    And were Bames prioritised for treatment? The BBC always claimed that the virus exposed the systemic racism in the system and that Bames were more likely to die…due to racism….but of course facts proved otherwise…nothing to do with ethnicity more to do with jobs, population density and lifestyle such as multiple generational households…..just so happens migrants migrate en masse to cities and start off in low paid jobs….nothing to do with systemic racism just purely how it is until they begin to become successful and move out and other migrants move in….Jews….Irish….Bames…..and whoever next.

    Bames only became prioritised recently as the government announced new categories for being vaccinated…and ‘ethnicity’ was included as a criteria….even though really based on the above…jobs and population density.

    Why is the BBC so desperate to find ‘systemic racism’ in everything and to blame it for every and all setbacks any Bame might suffer?

      A few minutes in they make a claim that all ISIS execution videos are green screen

      Surely it’s a lot easier to actually take someone to the sand and execute them
      rather than build a foreground in a studio and have a load of blood to clean up afterwards.

          Arrested as Military Rescues Tortured Children From Tunnels Beneath Capitol Hill.
          US Special Op forces recovered bodies, body parts and at least a hundred surviving children from a tunnel system beneath the White House and Capitol Building in Washington DC on Fri. 29 Jan. In the early morning hours as body bags were being delivered, multiple troops were seen coming out of the White House with at least a hundred children in tow.
          The children were believed to have been abused, tortured and killed by political elites in an elaborate tunnel system that ran beneath Capitol Hill and connected to other systems for 200 miles. All was thought part of an international Child Trafficking Ring run by global and political elites with ties to Jeffrey Epstein’s Pedophile Island – that lay next door to Biden’s Water Island.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/56124688

    Another sh1t-stirring, race-baiting article from the obnoxious bBBC.

    The article reports on the lack of BAME women in the England female football team. The photo they’ve chosen as the main one on their webshite shows a team of 11 players, 2 of whom are BAME. Or put another way 18%. Compare this to the national average (for adult females) which is around 10%-15% depending on which census you read.

    So the England womens photo they’ve chosen actually shows an *over* representation of female BAME’s.

    As for the article itself, well I managed to steel myself and read the tedious woke dross that nowadays passes as a bBBC headline. Utter garbage of course, whinging about perceived injustices.

    Any sporting team should be picked on the players ability, not skin colour.

    Unless you’re the BBC of course.

    TWotWeeeee Watch #2 – “cracking the American market”

    The BBC’s Brexit-Bashing was helped along by Roger Taylor, drummer for Queen which was one of several British world-dominating super-groups in the 1970s and 1980s following in the footsteps of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, The Who and Cream in the 1960s and Led Zeppelin in the early 1970s. He has signed a letter to the Government, apparently, about the problems faced by UK performers who now have to apply for Visas and Carnets for people and kit in order to perform in the EU.

    Not that they can at present, thanks to Covid, although there’s probably the option of going to perform in Sweden.

    Funny thing, but one of the BBC programmes that I watched on iPlayer before it was taken away from me by the same BBC was a series of programmes about British contemporary music groups. One in the series featured Queen. It is almost certainly available on the internet. I remember that it was this overseas tour that was important: “cracking the American market”. That and the tour of Japan were the most important things to Queen and their management. Both were featured in the BBC TV programme.

    What do you need to do that? Visas and Carnets.

    Did they have any trouble getting those? Not as far as I know.

    They saw. They went. They conquered.

    Presenter today was Ed Stourton; so pleasant to not have to cope with Mark ‘sneery’ Mardell or Jonny ‘staccato’ Dymond. However, Ed – normally one of the more pleasant BBC radio broadcasters to listen to – had obviously been taking some sneering lessons from Mardell and either some timing lessons from a ‘Luvvie’ or he had caught the Dymond ‘hiccoughs’.

    The way Ed paused before sneering through “the UK voted to leave the EU in the Referendum” fitted the tone of the programme.

    Intentional? I like to think not.

    TWotWeeeeeeee Watch #4 – do as we say, not do as we do

    The BBC love to disparage the internet and its social platforms despite making much use of those things as any Corporation in the world.

    The BBC continued their big-time Brexit-Bashing in today’s programme by attacking Lord Frost, newly appointed to the Cabinet to clear up Bojo’s and Govid’s messes with the EU. Is that not what posters do on these Internet forums, BBC? Attack people? Are you not as guilty as any so-called ‘right wing’ or ‘Far Right’ poster on Farcebook or as part of the Twitterati?

    You certainly arranged for journalist George Parker (FT?) to make some disparaging comments about Lord Frost and repeated them. “He has not been elected.” It took a friend of Lord Frost to observe that that is true of lots of Peers in the House of Lords.

    The BBC also appeared to claim that Lord Frost negotiated the EU Trade Deal in tandem with the PM right to the end. Word on the street is that Lord Frost was elbowed aside by the PM and Michael Gove in early December and the botched deal was down to them. I don’t know the truth of that.

    But I do know that the Presenter made me think ‘lie’ as soon as the words were out of his mouth. Might need to do an extra ‘Mea Culpa’ at Confession a.s.a.p., Ed.

    I decided to while away the hours painfully shifting the massive sleepers and digging out all the soil by having my portable with Radio 4 on…

    What a bad decision, first I was assailed by the Drummer from Queen moaning about how much more difficult it was to play in Europe now, 2 different currencies have to be carried etc. etc. etc….

    Followed by a daffodil farmer who was moaning about having to let the flowers rot in the field due to lack of foreign flower pickers. (They failed to ask him if low wages for UK workers might be a factor but hey, ho)

    Followed by an “Anglo-Indian” teen type describing how she was affected by discrimination after moving to the UK.

    Followed by a teen girl saying how much better the Archers is now that it has modern storyline including such such things as “Modern slavery” and it no longer has to rely on old, white listeners.

    Followed by a blind guy who questioned whether he should be included under the category of “Disabled” our in fact if anyone disabled should be classified as disabled.

    Hours of non-stop banner-waving .

    i don’t know what you think you are up to BBC but it sure ain’t very good!

        Dobyns,

        Funny ‘dat, when I went to Europe before BREXIT I coulda sworn that I had to have both £’s and €’s to cover my cash spending.

        Actually, the the Drummer from Queen didn’t say, “it was more difficult it was to play in Europe now [because] 2 different currencies have to be carried…”. That was ‘digg’ making stuff up again.

        But you believed him. Funny ‘dat.

    They didn’t have that Pratt Wong on who claims gardening in Britain is imperialist and hence racist, then? I simply can’t tolerate anything on BBC these days. Football is ruined by the crisp Pratt, even TMS is so PC that i can’t listen to it, Toady makes me feel suicidal within five minutes . Only re runs on other channels of Portillo railways and the Antiques Road Trip, with judicious use of the fast forward on the PC bits which creep in from time to time and the glorious It Ain’t Half Hot Mum on You Tube make it on to our screen.

    Caught the BBC news 1700 by accident – one of their own – someone called ‘jo Whiley ‘ going on about her special needs sister ‘who hasn’t got anyone to speak for them’ – well girl – news for you – you exploited your position to ‘campaign ‘ for your sister
    …….. but what about others ….. I’m in a group which keeps going down the date list – coupled with being in the worst health area in the country – with one of the lowest vaccination rate in the UK as well….
    I write that here partly as a moan – but because unlike ms whiley – I won’t be on the BBC news moaning about it …..

    I mentioned in an earlier comment that the BBC had backtracked over its claim that Israel was responsible for Vaccinating the Palestinians.
    Link here to the story.

    https://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/bbc-backtracks-over-claim-israel-is-responsible-for-vaccinating-palestinians/

    ‘Shaun Ley, presenter of Dateline London, which discusses international affairs, suggested the Accords meant that the Israeli government had responsibility for vaccinating Palestinians in a segment aired January 16.
    The claim was rebutted by a journalist being interviewed for the BBC News channel show, Jonathan Sacerdoti, who said it was the responsibility of the Palestinian Authority.’

    But the BBC won’t let go. On tonight’s 5pm news when closing the report on Israel’s vaccination success rate, the BBC managed to insert a comment asserting that Israel had been accused by the Palestinians of blocking vaccines from Arab states.
    The BBC really have it in for Jews.

      Not about the Palestine full time victims – but a discussion from C4 news from – I think Thursday night ….

      ..the guru Murphy – who I think is a bit ‘touched ‘ was talking to a standard issue expert about ‘vaccine poverty ‘. The pair seemed to think the idea of exporting our vaccines to the third world after the top 4 – yes top 4 groups were done – was ok.

      There was no alternative view – so between the two loons that’s where it was left – I can’t believe more sane bits of the MSM didn’t rip guru Murphy a new on –

      – but I suspect I may have composed 50% of the viewing figures …
      ……….this insanity about taking responsibility for The World when we haven’t done our country is part of the insanity being caused in these weird times ….

    Countryfile
    Green item : However, in Northamptonshire – where the rising waters of the River Nene caused havoc over Christmas – Tom Heap discovers that one imaginative farmer has turned it to his advantage. He’s been making his land pay by turning it into a wetland sanctuary for wildlife.

    Another major political headache tonight’s programme investigates is the impact of Brexit on the fishing industry.
    Has the agreement with the EU really delivered?

    – ecologist Josh Styles reveals the secret world inside a prehistoric plant.

    – Tom also meets a sheepdog turned search-and-rescue hero
    – gets hands-on with a project that has unearthed evidence of riverside residents dating back to Neolithic times.

      7.15pm-8pm BBC2 Ski Sunday
      Should be safe viewing…nope presenters say you can’t help but notice the lack of ethnic diversity and waffle on about how inclusive winter sports is and it is for everyone.
      It was almost like they were apologizing that they were airing a whole programme without anyone from the BAME community in it.

    Ski Sunday bBBC2 at 7.15 pm.

    Last in series.
    At the end of the introductions at 7.20 pm they announce ‘after the action, we cover a very important topic- the lack of diversity and BAME in ski-ing’.

    FFS.

      Can’t wait for the athletics season…I wonder if they’ll say you can’t help but notice that the 100m final isn’t very diverse!

      The piece is on now and the ethnic skier they are featuring is almost as white as me! A quote from one of the talking heads ‘open spaces were built as safe spaces for white people’

      George Floyd gets a mention and it’s turned into a BLM propaganda piece.

      TV is now off and so will be Ski Sunday for ever in this household!

    This nonsense from the bBBC needs called out. It is beyond belief. They moaned a while back about lack of diversity in swimming FFS!
    Why do they not take issue at the relative lack of whites in basketball, US olympic sprinting squads etc etc.
    They traditionally do not ski given the geography. Why do the BBC not moan at the lack of Brits in ski competitions apart from a very few exceptions. They really are pond life scum!

    Just made the mistake of watching Ski Sunday. A better example of anti -white hatred couldn’t have been hatched by Hollywood itself. Pure and utter racism. Speaking personally I will spend the rest of my life fighting this intolerable organisation with it’s lies and historical distortions.

    Turned over from Ski Sunday after they were complaining about the lack of diversity only to find Tom Heap on Countryfile on the Northamptonshire item mention climate change twice in 3 minutes. Is there no escape other than the off button.

    Funny you should write that – I’ve just had a look at the London evening standard website – the latest stabbed – dead – coloured 16 year old boy was 2 nights ago . A 23 year old coloured boy killed in the week and 2 arrests for a killing on 5 February – there is no mention of whitees doing the killings – no one can play the race card …..
    All that wind and kneeling – blaming whitee -means nothing –

      We need to demand a hard cold look at Ofcom because it would seem they are responsible for this ethnic cleansing. They dictate to the news media, the advertising industry and all government departments with their “say it like we demand you say it” dictat.

    Thinking about the state of this country I have concluded that there is a disconnect between two groups. On the one hand you have people who have antecedents who risked their lives to save this country from threat at huge personal cost and in the other you have visitors who are here to take as much as possible for free.

    The visitors have very loud voices, couldn’t give a monkeys about the past in this country and have much support from a woke press etc,

    The other side are belittled, scorned and vilified by the woke press.

    Both sides have much anger….

    Waiting to see how this pans out…..
