      Did you mean teary-eyed?

      North Koreans have a lot of practice in crying. The public display of fake grief when their top dog died a while back was difficult to watch. Could be that was the first genuine tear that girl had ever shed.

Moron…he should be over there saying how dear it is to live here, housing shortage, high rents, low wages, NHS overwhelmed, as are schools, doctors etc….traitor.

        It is a wonderful country, utopia for those arriving, for us decent honest hardworking Brits who’s family’s have been here for generations, its fast turning into the stinking rotten third world sh!thole, similar to the one the migrants have left behind. Mainwaring, Jonesy and co were not just of another time, they were of another country.

          There was a report by Gavin Lee broadcast this morning in which he interviews one of those from the ‘jungle’. Ali from Syria left because he wanted to ‘skip the war’. He had crossed into France from Turkey, Greece and Serbia – paying for transport a lot of the way. He lives in a 5 man tent and moaned about the queues for the toilets, the queues for re-charging his mobile phone, his one meal a day and his having to put up with drunken (!!) people engaging in ethnic fighting.

          He wants England because he speaks English and has friends and relatives here. Does not want to learn another language. He got into a train truck last night but the French Police just stopped the train. He has been ousted by British Police as well. His message to the ‘English Government’ is that ‘whatever you do it will just make us wait for more time, but we will cross’.

          I waited in vain for Mr. Lee to ask him ‘what makes you think the British people want you there? No doubt his answer re Human Rights, entitlement, etc. would have provided too much Eurosceptic ammunition for our ‘esteemed’ broadcaster to take.

Well someone said that about May, June and July but it didn’t go quite to plan unless you stick a thermometer up a tail pipe of a 747 at Heathrow, that is. At least a bit of warmth will creep in to the far South East this coming 11 days, but for the rest of us? Central heating and slippers at the ready!

    Yep, those who were listening 20 years ago to the politicians, climate scientists, environmentalists & sundry campaigners saying the world would be frying not long into the 21st century and were thinking or even saying “We will wait until after the first decade has passed to see if you are right” have wry, ‘I told you so’ looks on their faces.

    Maybe B-BBC should be running a book – if it stays this chilly below seasonal averages – on when all the global frying promoters will start to get in a flap over whether we are heading into a mini-ice age. I’ll give it about two years from …
    … now.

    Will they be asking us all to burn extra CO2 to warm the planet? Will they apologise for all the grief & impoverishment they have caused? Will they hand back all the money they have made off the back of it?

      Some sun spot activity scientists are already there. They released a report indicating that they have now found the formula that got sun spot activity into sync with global temperatures, and a mini ice age is predicted from about 2030.

      I do not think RH has chosen to report on that one – for some reason.

Perhaps Harrabin will dig up the guys who at the end of the 1960s were predicting a mini-ice age for the turn of the century. He could point out how they got all all their data wrong and didn’t ‘adjust’ it. They could point out how the AGravatingWarmers ‘adjusted’ their figures & still got it wrong and offer to meet them somewhere in the middle, say? It’s a deal, then.

        Africans chiefs and kings sold their prisoners captured in tribal raids. Far better economically then to kill them. These were initially sold to the pharoanic empire (going back 2000 BC or more), then to Arabs, then much later to Europeans. Fortunately or otherwise, Britain stopped the slave trade, and thus damaged an export trade on which many African chiefs relied on..

        Britain’s colonisation of Africa was far better – in governance, education and medical relief, then anything that African tribal chiefs levied on the poor African, and more then compensated for the loss of the export trade.

        Britain colonised virtually the whole world. People who were and are smart, learned from the conqueror – his skill, work ethic, innovation, education, and are now successful. Those who were not, try to get some guilt money.

        Slavery is a mental attitude. A free people can never be enslaved, even though they are occupied.

      For the same reason that Africa is still the poorest continent, despite having huge natural resources.

      The BBC report waxed long on the vaccine. We heard from a professor and others, but were never told which company invented and developed it.

      Its strange that there are hardly any physicists, engineers or mathematicians of any note who are African. To develop a technical civilisation, one needs a surplus of such people – not doctors, lawyers, journalists, media specialists, or sportsmen of any sort.

    This fellow was clearly not going to be chewing the sour dough with people like us at polite nw 3 dinner parties and could thus comfortably be mocked together with anyone who dared question the morally correct line that all these young male sub saharan thugs (and it would appear numbers of simply abandoned children) are obviously refugees from Mr Blairs illegal wars and should be encouraged to come here given a grant, an underage girlfriend from a troubled background, and allowed to get on with their first novel.

        What the BBC doesn’t understand is that quite a lot of what is in the letter is exactly what millions of Brits are thinking! Obviously the BBC thinks that by denigrating this letter, and those who have similar thoughts, they will convince people that the BBC liberal view is the only virtuous option for a civilised society. What I hope is that those millions who agree with the contents of the letter, real or forged, wonder why they are paying their License Fee if the BBC is so ready to denigrate their thinking.

    I see the trial of Roof who killed nine black people in America has begun, this will be a daily trial for us as well.
    SKY’s female presenter told us she thought it was a good idea that the Confederate flag had been taken down in that area. She also told us that there will be a lot of ‘soul searching’ in America.
    Firstly her thoughts are of no merit, factual reporting is, further as despicable as the crime was, it was carried out by a ‘lone operative’ ( if its good for Muslims…) fruitcake. Where is the data that shows how many Americans are ‘soul searching’ ? This is another example of making ‘evil whitey’ go down the old well trodden guilt trip road yet again.

        The arrogance of ‘journalists’ is profound. Two Brains Paxman actually wrote that he asked the questions of our politicos to which the public sought answers. No he didn’t, which is why it was left to a member of the public to ask MiniMili whether his lot had borrowed/spent too much prior to the 2007 (it started in Brown’s Scottish banks) crash. Brown was never questioned about it and only in 2012 did Andrew Neil stick it, very gently, to Ed Bollox that his lot had run an enormous structural deficit BEFORE 2008. Still, that one reasonable member of the public probably cost MiniMili the GE. He deserves a knighthood at least.

        The problem of nationalism is it being conflated with right wing support for the wealthy and bigotry. This song reinforces that. If the horrible neighbour is going around name calling other ethnic groups, while that isnt the worlds worst crime as some Guardian readers believe, its hardly admirable or likely to endear us to his wealthy arrogant neighbour.
        Nor is the ‘liberal man’s’ anti Semitism convincing since it is atypical of the Globalist tendency. They after all are the one’s constantly bleating about the Holocaust and wishing to make so called ‘Holocaust denial’ a crime.

      I have no doubt officers are promoted above their abilities because of who and what they are but at the lower end of the scale, where the policing matters I have found that in the majority of cases, ability counts.

    Blimey, 38Degrees are getting a bit desperate.

    First off I get an email screaming about attacks on Aunty, and then when that didn’t work a plea to ask if I’d got it.

    Now they have gone full Wolfie and unleashed the Murdoch.

    Exposed: it looks like George Osborne held a secret meeting with media baron Rupert Murdoch – right before the chancellor proposed serious cuts and changes to the BBC. [1]

    The government seems to be building up to a huge attack that could cut to the heart of our BBC. The weaker the BBC, the easier it is for Rupert Murdoch to build his empire of biased news. And the more he controls the news, the easier it is for him to push his own agenda.

    The BBC is independent – and that’s exactly why it’s under attack. It’ll take a huge public outcry to protect it.

    For a start ‘looks like’ seems a p*ss poor way to kick off.

      The government thinks it can tear our BBC apart by stealth – slowly slipping in cuts and changing the rules. But if hundreds of thousands of us create a huge public outcry now, we can show David Cameron it’d be a political disaster to destroy our BBC.”

      Maybe Cameron should read Cicero and find out how Pompey cleared the Mediterranean of pirates in 60 days!! I don’t think Pompey spent much time soul searching about the counterproductiveness of Roman foreign policy ,felt the pain of every sentient being in the Universe, contemplated the use of sniffer dogs or built feeble fences. He did destroy their ships and resettled pirates who surrendered to him in sparsely populated areas elsewhere. Obviously an early version of Australian immigration policy.

    Interesting piece by the BBC about the people arrested for begging.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-33729766

    Over 80% of the people arrested weren’t homeless at all!

    Want to see ‘racism’ in action? look on the streets of any big city and you’ll find that virtually every homeless person is a white male. Now if equality is ‘real’ on not just a way of oppressing the white population we need to be seeking an equal ethnic representation not just in the positive but in the negative as well.

    We need to see more black and Pakistanis on the streets homeless ! Where’s Lenny Henry when you really need him?

    But of course ‘equality’ has nothing to do with equality it’s another word for oppression.

    Normally Big Issue founder John Bird has a lot of sense to speak, but this time either the BBC has not told him the ethnicity of the latest arrests or he’s turned into a complete hand wringer!

    Goodness only knows how many Romanians et al are caught begging when they have the benefit of state support and a house, for as sure as the Gospel truth they have no real need to beg.

    This web page has so many examples of bias by omission that it’s difficult to know where to begin.

        A few Saturdays ago (about 8am), I drove into the small, market town which is local to me; I usually go to the cashpoint to draw some money for the weekend expenses.
        I saw that there were 5 or 6 shabby looking foreign blokes loitering near my bank, so I went to another bank’s machine to get my money.
        When I returned to the car, I saw that there was only one of them now; on the pavement at the edge of the market square.There was a small mound of wet sand that had been put there, and he was sculpting a dog out of it – with a tin next to him for money to be thrown in. I have seen others sculpting the same ubiquitous style of dog, in various places. I asked him where he was from: “Romania” he answered, he looked to be about 18.

        I thought that about what I had done in altering my usual pattern of behaviour (in however minor a way) is what we will all increasingly have to do as the numbers of legal and illegal immigrants here expand and their presence impinges, ever more, on our way of life.
        It is an example of the sort of incremental changes that the indigenous people here will be compelled to make, due to factors which have been forced upon us by those who rule us, but who never consulted us.

          I thought the dog sculptor was ‘indigenous’ to West London. Then I went to Oxford at the weekend and saw another (should be illegal) immigrant doing the same shit approximation of a dog. I also spotted a muslim with a headscarf handing tourists a tiny scrap of paper declaring she was a ‘refugee’ while doing her best impression of a ‘pitiful’ person. I am sick to death of these parasites coming to the UK and littering our streets. We are importing poverty on an industrial scale.

          My patience has completely snapped and I want clear firm action. I’m absolutely past caring about their ‘human rights’. Mass deportation of anybody not contributing to the UK’s finances.

      There’s many justifications for mass immigration (invasion and colonisation) into white countries and only white countries.

      In America they justify mass Mexican immigration by saying ” Aren’t we Americans once immigrants too ?”

      In Britain and France, they justify mass immigration by saying ” We once colonised their countries, now they can come here, the latest one is ” the NHS will collapse without them !!!”

      In Germany they justify mass immigration by saying” We got to pay for what happened between 1933-1945.”

      In Ireland they justify mass immigration by saying ” We’ve went all over the world as immigrants, so we should welcome Africans and muslims into our country.”

      And finally, Sweden and Norway they justify mass immigration by saying ” We’re successful and rich nations, it would be selfish not to share our wealth to immigrants.”

    BBC TV News. 10.20pm

    Report on Wimmin’s Football. Woman told camera that she wanted to see a woman’s slot on Match of the Day. And that women are every bit as good as men. Accompanied with punchy guitar music.

    No counter view that women’s football is boring and won’t attract investment. A fact that the BBC and wimmin can’t and will never understand.

    Followed by the biggest sporting news of the day that England had beaten Australia at cricket. Was this intentional by the BBC to place cricket second to women’s football?? Male ‘middle class’ white game? (But it isn’t, of course).

    Also, I don’t think they watched the match or didn’t understand it judging by the their report. They belittled England because Bell was dropped by an Australian fielder, and they thought it was possible if he had been caught that Australia could have won.

    What total cobblers! Australia could never have won because England only needed to score just over 100 runs to win and the loss of Bell was inconsequential!

    Why do we bother….I think the BBC is more out of control than it ever has been.

      It’s most obvious on a non live bBC F1 weekend, when F1 is of little consequence to them.

        Just like Pravda, the interests of the BBC are no longer aligned with the interests of the population it ‘serves’, and it is controlled by a detached and unaccountable elite. In the BBC’s case, I believe it is the EU which now pulls the strings, as a major hidden provider of funds and attitudes.

      However, it would be merciful if the BBC would stop insisting women are equal to men. Women would need at least a five-goal handicap to compete with men.

    BBC News at 10pm going large on the sad case of the Palestinian baby who died in what appears to be an arson attack allegedly by Jewish settlers in the West Bank. Fair enough, but how come there was no BBC TV news report on the 2011 murders of the entire Fogel familly of Israeli settlers by Pali terrorists? – Including their 3 month old baby. I remember it well. On the day BBC news instead featured a long item on a report by a lefty think tank on Tory cutz. Not a peep about the Fogels. It was deemed not news worthy.

          Pure anti-Israel bias by omission.

          Spot on. Thompson came up with the typical mealy-mouthed response whenever the BBC is caught in its bias. It was obvious to anyone who knows the BBC that they kept quiet about the barbaric murders of the Fogel family because they didn’t want to be perceived as being sympathetic to Israelis and evoke anti-Palestinian feeling by broadcasting news about the atrocity.

          The BBC are masters at propaganda by omission of some pertinent facts and the widespread publication of others. But they blundered here, thinking they could sweep the atrocity under the carpet and nobody would notice. Unfortunately for them, there are enough decent people around who were appalled at the savage murders, Louise Mensch among them. I recall she wrote an article questioning the BBC’s uncaring attitude to the Fogels. That in itself was exceptionally naïve – as if the BBC would ever “care” about the beheading of an Israeli baby – and demonstrated the trust that people still have in the BBC.

          Well, let’s hope we can continue to erode that trust on this site and others so that more and more people begin to perceive the hideous face of the BBC behind its benign mask.

    I know that Nicola Krankie is still never off our screens and airwaves, but has anyone heard any mention of the other two no-marks since they both failed miserably? Did I miss the forensic examination by the BBC into their complete failure to justify the hysterical, fawning coverage they were given, or have they been allowed to slip back into obscurity hoping no-one noticed?

    I am often intrigued what lies behind the BBC staying mute on a story until all the facts are in and they can safely ignore it if it doesn’t suit the narrative, and when they rush to indulge in the kind of speculation so decried by our now late lamented Flokker community if practiced on forum as opposed to a supposedly impartial, professional broadcaster.

    One could ask one supposes, but the answer is likely to be they don’t have to justify rampant double standards ‘because journalism’.

    Here’s a petition from the very left wing 38 degrees group pro BBC asking for signatures to defend it.

    The next time some loon asks for examples / evidence of bias ask them when was the last time someone on the right was mounting a campaign to save the BBC, and why they think that might be?

    “Exposed: it looks like George Osborne held a secret meeting with media baron Rupert Murdoch – right before the chancellor proposed serious cuts and changes to the BBC. [1]

    The government seems to be building up to a huge attack that could cut to the heart of our BBC. The weaker the BBC, the easier it is for Rupert Murdoch to build his empire of biased news. And the more he controls the news, the easier it is for him to push his own agenda.

    The BBC is independent – and that’s exactly why it’s under attack. It’ll take a huge public outcry to protect it. Please can you sign the petition to save our BBC now? It only takes a few seconds to sign:”

    As usual there’s the paranoia over Murdoch which is something like being afraid of the bogeyman! In any event people now get their news & content from a far wiser range of sources than Murdoch has a hope of controlling.

    One side to every story

    BBC Radio 4 this morning and our Mishal Husain cues up (rather than interviews) a former illegal migrant to the UK

    I would be pleased to hear from these people and interested in their responses when questioned about their motivations.

    This chap aged 13 got here via Calais in a refrigerated lorry (and apparently at the end of an extensive and gruelling world tour) – his mother having sent him off “because she was worried the Taleban or American Forces might kill him”

    Unfortunately – and unsuprisingly for the BBC – our Mishal only wants half the story, and so her one tentative challenging question is not followed up although a hat full of questions arise from our migrant’s response.

    Mishal: “Do you have any sympathy for the views of people who may be ‘uncomfortable’ about migrants coming to the UK?”

    I wish I had a transcript, suffice to say the guy launches into a tirade:
    ‘right-wing press’
    ‘people losing their humanity’
    ‘the authorities made his life hell’
    ‘they didn’t believe his age’

    My personal favourite:
    ‘it’s our [Britain’s?] fault anyway, these countries are unsafe’

    The guy hardly stopped for breath. Our Mishal didn’t follow up of course – perhaps she was getting a signal to back to Jimmy Naughtie in Yorkshire and some county show: “Clap evryone, so the listeners know we have an audience” No for much longer, surely?

      What was important and completely missed out of the interview, was whether his asylum claim had been allowed, because minors are allowed to stay in the UK until they have reached the age of majority. It is therefore in an asylum seekers interests to claim they are as young as they can get away with.

      Being worried that the US or Taleban might kill someone is not grounds for a successful asylum claim!

      I heard the interview, and he recited every single left wing meme about asylum I think the left has dreamed up. I think he’d been primed before this interview.

        Plea for lost BBC sense of Britishness

        A group devoted to the appreciation of vintage television is calling on TV watchers to search their attics for the last known vestiges of the BBC’s respect for Britishness, now feared lost.

        Episodes of Doctor Who, Dad’s Army and The Likely Lads have no known copies but the missplacing of the BBC’s patriotism may prove to be be a far more serious cultural disaster.

        “Many people recorded shows off the TV and radio as far back as the 1950s,” say the spirits of Winston Churchill, Francis Drake and Florence Nightingale, three of the hundreds of spectoral voices behind the appeal for the ‘Lost B in BBC’ appeal.

        “The purpose of the appeal is to rediscover a domestic soul.”

        The BBC is sadly among those fighting against the campaign.

        Four Dennis Potter dramas from the ’60s are also missing believed to be wiped by the broadcaster – but never mind about that.

      A chap called Alfie made it through to LBC earlier. He called the situation perfectly – i.e. middle class hand wringers pushing multiculturalism down the working class populations throat, while living in their nice enclaves. I agreed with every word. It was then business as usual as very well spoken people phoned in to assure us he was a racist. One lady even phoned in to assure use that all the people that she’d seen being interviewed on TV were engineers and teachers, so we should let them all in. Poor Alfie lives in Tower Hamlets (as I used to). Not sure where she lived, but I’d put money on the immigrants she encounters are either running the corner shop, tiling her bathroom or sitting next to her at a Notting Hill dinner party.

        It should have been “nice hideously white enclaves“

        UKIP’s point based immigration policy would let in “engineers and teachers” But you don’t get any sense of enthusiasm for this policy from the liberal lefties, for some reason.

        I think the reason is that the dysfunctional mind of a lefty is basically schizophrenic. That is, if someone like an immigrant makes a lefty feel superior, then selfishness makes them say that the immigrant is a superior person. But if you make the lefty feel inferior, then selfishness makes them say that you are an inferior person.

        Like Climate Change, its all based on the fantasy assumptions of wishful thinking. Its why Blacks are stereotyped in BBC dramas as intellectual “engineers and teachers” types, superior to the white-van-man types. This is so as to prevent them from being “stereotyped”? or in other words, realistically depicted, in a way that shows Blacks as seven times more derogatorily depicted, as indigenous white people.

        Its much more easy for the dysfunctional BBC types to derogatorily depict Jews, Australians, Canadians, Japanese, Western Europeans and Mensa members, because of the reality of who UKIP’s points based immigration policy would really let in to this country.

        A bit before my time. I was only ten when the Satanic Verses were published. It certainly made an impression on my young mind – I’d been taught by my ‘traditional’ school teachers that we should venerate books. We certainly shouldn’t swarm in the street burning them and screaming for the author, and Britain generally, to be killed. That is one of those moments that could have changed the course of history – people rounded up, immigration status checked and relevant people deported back to Iran, etc (I’m sure they would have been given a wonderful welcome by their Muslim brethren). Instead, we showed how ‘tolerant’ and ‘enlightened’ we were. The rest is history – if there is anybody left to write it, once we become entirely monocultural.

It is a very cinematic book, and would I think have been a candidate for screen treatment, if only it hadn’t been such a bone of contention.

              If it helps, I would put it at about 180 degrees from Harry Potter – now there is a truly unreadable series of books, execrably written by an author whose political inclinations are correspondingly juvenile..

            I agree. I think the point of no return was passed post 9/11 and 7/7. The BBC and government kicked the can down the road hoping that if we’re all just a bit more accommodating, then things will resolve themselves via inter-marriage, muslims lapsing and becoming more secular – e.g. like the Jewish community have. Of course, Islam isn’t Judaism and Muslims don’t share the same values as Jews or, it would seem, anything remotely like their IQs.

            Civil war is unfortunately inevitable, unless the British People can bring themselves to vote for somebody that will fix the problem.

            Unfortunately, as with all ‘extreme governments for extreme events’ how do you turn the madness back off again? Once they’ve got their hands on the levers of power, they won’t want to step down and risk a trial for ‘ethnic cleansing’ (polite deportation with compensation). We could be stuck with Shriah in all but name – jackboot on the face of humanity, etc.

    The Glass Floor at Broadcasting House is cracking. Middle Class parents have created a “glass floor” for their less able children to stop them slipping down the social scale. Research shows that middle-class families are hoarding the best opportunities available for the less academically gifted children, such as the university, arts and media route to a job at the BBC. Research found that well-healed parents help struggling children by using contacts at the BBC, and social networks such as “Common Purpose“, to find them useful internships that lead to well paid jobs at the BBC. But John Whittingdale is being sent a great deal of evidence that this is causing the ”Glass Floor” at the BBC, to show serious cracks. The study was based on many of the 45 year old employees working at the BBC.

    Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, Anglican Bishop Stephen Lowe, writer and broadcaster Christina Patterson and Pastor Clement Okusi

    So that s no real debate at all then, just all shades of the same argument.
    Hmmm and … the public vote has long gone, 😀 we have erm “Tommy” Sandhu these days, with a helpful ahem … “selection” … of tweets.

      I salute your bravery and resolve in watching this BBC offering.
      I had to switch off immediately I saw Yasmin Alibaba Clown, the Most Stupid Woman on TV and Waliking Emetic was present.
      How did the “sex talk with toddlers” segment go?. The vast Muslim and priestly expertise in doing much more than talking about sex with toddlers must have been enlightening. As someone else has noted this is well beyond parody.

      Just catching up on Sunday Morning Live, where both sides of the argument always win Pussyfooter-of-the-Year Awards, whatever the topic. Apparently ‘only’ 0.24% of our population are refugees (UNHCR). (a) Do you believe them? (b) How do they do the calculation? (c) So what?
      Much breast-beating about the word ‘Swarm’ (again). Thankfully, it was pointed out on the programme that one definition is; ‘An aggregation of persons, especially when in turmoil or moving in mass’.
      Yasmin, I’ll bet the people of Kent are delighted to welcome all these consultant surgeons, concert pianists and captains of industry from the back, inside and underside of lorries. Why don’t you ask them?

    There was an interesting caller on Any Answers yesterday. A typical BBC caller…This well meaning (tho’ completely daft) woman assured us that Britain wasn’t overcrowded, that Scotland had vast areas of open space to accommodate these poor migrants. Of course no one at the Beeb thought to tell her that France, with a population on a par with ours and three to four times the land mass, had even more space for these people to settle. These facts just don’t seem to appeal to the BBC mind set. And, of course, these people , according to what I glean from Aunty, are all doctors, lawyers and engineers, they will want to work. No one challenged the obvious flaw in her assumption that the migrants would be content to remain in Scotland. FFS even the Jocks don’t want to stay there, parts of London are full of Scots! Seeing as these illegal entrants have crossed deserts, seas, and an entire continent does anyone really believe they would remain in the Outer Hebrides? Perhaps we could gently persuade them with machine gun turrets erected on Hadrian’s Wall.
    That would please me on so many levels…

      Russia has vastly more space – it’s strange that they don’t appear to want to go there, isn’t it? I’m sure Mr Putin would give them a warm welcome ……. or perhaps not.

        It also has a very low birthrate and a suplus of women which would suit the swarms of male invaders.

        Russians however still know who they are and who they want to remain, and arent afraid of being called ‘xenophobes’ or ‘racists’.

    Al Beeb’s news currently discussing the immigrant crisis in their usual balanced fashion. Complaining about the Mail’s pointing out that these illegal immigrants are being put up in hotels and only ‘given’ £35 per week whilst simultaneously saying our benefit system gives them nothing. Are the hotels offering free accommodation and is each £35 found on a Leftist money tree?
    These illegals have been living under plastic sheets with zero assistance from the French who should have been processing them.

      How about the Beeb drop the migrant crap and call them invaders ? Still we got Sian on next to talk about the use of the word ‘swarm’ typical misdirection ‘…. oh look squirrel’.I guess that will be my tax money putting them up in hotels and giving them spending money. Well I have news for you BBC I do not want my taxes spent on the invaders I want them spent on defence , health , infrastructure and keeping the lights on .

      I would imagine that the picture on the front of the Mail of those two cnuts smiling whilst enjoying a nice pot of tea at a nice hotel, is almost too much for any hard working job hating Brit to take.

            It is what is called, appropriately, balanced reporting. The Grauniad and Al Beeb make no pretence of balance.

    BH talking to a Swede (really?). I just realised that the mass importation of aliens to Sweden, and the crushing of any opposition to this relentless process, actually gives ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ a whole new meaning at societal level. It gives a name to exactly what most people object to.

    And it (quite rightly) pathologises it, in the same way that the original ‘Syndrome’ referred to the overwhelming of a hostage’s cognitive framework and emotional integrity by an existential imperative of surviving in a brutal, inhuman and ruthless situation.

    Perhaps it would be productive to understand the psychology of ‘rolling over’ at a society level – looking at the involvement of the BBC as a key component of this would give us a whole new way of looking at the Corporation, as an institution harbouring and propagating a pathology.

    The BBC is accustomed to criticism, and knows very well how to counter it – but being diagnosed and pitied, and having corrective treatment applied, this might not be to their liking. Not very dignified, to have your misjudgement and skewed view of reality picked apart in terms of an illness..

      Sweden is a tragedy for the West. I have no pity for the ethnic Swedes as they have created their own particular version of a third world hellhole but it is a European country and it will have a really detrimental effect on Scandinavia in particular.
      What puzzles me is why the ethnic Swedes have not opposed the destruction of their country.
      In which case you are correct. Stockholm syndrome it is.
      Perhaps the relentless pursuit of the ideal socialist based society that has been Sweden for generations is the cause.
      Literally the Swedes have gone insane as a nation.
      The BBC is likewise now the product of at leat 50 years of indoctrination of it’s staff. Like has recruited or trained like.
      BBC syndrome should now be our way of describing the useless pursuit of unreality and the collective howling of the swarm at any criticism of this.

        As Thilo Sarrazin points out in his book “Deutschland schafft sich ab” leftists in the media have succeeded in turning every social and political problem into an “empathy deficit” problem.
        Germans are particularly susceptible to the “Nazikeule”, the “Nazi club” which can be brought down on anyone who has a rational objection to uncontrolled mass immigration. Any German who complains, say, about wage depression can be accused of a lack of compassion, selfishness in denying others what he has and, of course, of not having learnt anything from his intolerant “Nazi past”. Any criticism of mass immigration must inevitably lead to mass extermination in the gas chambers. I’ve just been watching Euromagazin on German TV featuring a German lorry driver transporting a high value load destined for England from Belgium to Calais. Migrants are attempting to stowaway on his lorry in Belgium and he has had to write off loads worth 40,000 Euros because of damage caused by migrants. He is clearly very angry, yet the media type asks him “Do you have any sympathy with the plight of the migrants?”. You know deep down from what he has said previously that his sympathy is minimal, but the expected ritual response has to include some nod to their suffering and bravery or he might be depicted as harbouring some non-progressive Nazi/Neo Nazi leanings. The BBC, even though it cannot use the Nazikeule with the same effect continually tries to depict the unwillingness of the British public to accept any number of migrants with open arms as an “empathy deficiency” with the “other” The Greeks have to deal with more migrants than we do, more empathy and self sacrifice is required to live up to the new morality promulgated by the media. Every “news” item from the BBC about the Calais crisis contains some emotional appeal for compassion towards migrants. No one wants to be, or be seen to be, heartless or unfeeling, but the BBC is cynically exploiting the public’s better nature to shut down reasoned argument and pursue its own utopian political agenda.

          Very accurate observations. The problem for the BBC/liberal lugenpresse is that it is now so obvious.
          Nobody I come across believes them any more.
          It is the empathetic taliking to the empathetic not to the majority.

            They think of themselves as supremely empathetic, but they show no empathy to the millions of their fellow Brits who will lose wages, jobs, neighbourhoods due to the influx of millions of colonisers. As well as their children’s education, their health provision under the NHS will suffer, as well as their freedom to speak freely, live freely and to not be treated as second-class citizens in their own country.

            Beeboids – show some empathy for these people – you know: the working class who you despise but claim to support.

            I remember back in the heady days of the 70s, at the height of the Cold War, my military unit played host to a Russian defector from our opposite numbers in the Red Army. A really nice guy, hard as nails with a great sense of humour, we enjoyed several good evenings with much alcoholic refreshment.

            One of the topics of conversation one night was the Soviet leadership’s obsession with propaganda. The population subjected to an unvarying diet of what the Politburo wanted them to hear 24/7, with posters everywhere of steely-jawed workers and burly soldiers marching shoulder-to-shoulder into a brave, socialist future.

            “Doesn’t it get on your wick after a while, knowing they’re feeding you all these bloody lies?” I asked.

            “Naah” said my friend. “Nobody takes any notice of it. We make jokes about the latest pile of steaming pap from the state media. They know we don’t believe it. They don’t believe it either. They just churn it out to please their bosses and to keep their jobs and priveleges.”

            Sound like anybody we know?

            It could well be that even certain sections of the BBC don”t believe the BBC either. I turned on the World Service a couple of days ago late at night and they were announcing a programme called the Fifth Floor about the inner workings of the World Service. This according to the voice ” was where the news is made in 27 languages”. A candid admission that the BBC fabricates the news rather than reporting it.

              I completely agree with both you and DavidA.

              I’ve been surprised by the reaction of even quite Left wing friends and colleagues, most of whom can usually be relied upon to swallow hook, line and sinker, the BBC’s line on any event. But not this time!

              People are worried, they are angry and I suspect the C of E, the Government (such as it is) and the BBC are doing themselves no favours with this pusillanimous attitude to invading law breakers.

              The new establishment is in serious danger of misjudging the nation’s mood over this challenge to our security and ugly things could follow.

          Thank you, that is very interesting. When you are surrounded by cant, day in, day out, it is difficult to know where to ‘grab hold’ of it. To provide names for what is being done is to perform a great service of encapsulation. There has always been much power in naming devils, even if ‘their name is Legion’.
