Weather, climate or pure lies


Skeptical Climate Documentary Set to Rock UN Climate Summit – ‘Climate Hustle’ To Have Red Carpet Premiere in Paris


The BBC is blitzing us with unadulterated pro-man-made climate change propaganda with green activists allowed free rein on the airwaves to say the most outrageous things….then repeated with sincere, uncritical approval by the BBC presenters.

What we are being told is that CO2 is the cause of global warming…..em…except where’s the proof?  Not only is there no proof of that but in fact CO2 is not the most powerful so-called greenhouse gas…water vapour is.  Is water vapour a pollutant?  CO2 is being denounced as a pollutant, one that the West is guilty of having produced and now we must pay the price for our sins…our moral obligation to fund the corrupt third world countries whose politiicans know a good scam when they see one.  Lovely new airport in the Maldives.…shame it will be under water very soon, won’t it?…what optimism those Maldivian politicians must have.

Curious that the world is about to burn if we don’t reduce CO2 emissions to, well, zero, if you believe, and yet, such is the urgency and the danger that nations like China, India and Brazil, which are pumping out huge quantities of CO2 emissions, are to be allowed to keep on pumping.   Odd that.  Anyone looking on with an impartial eye might think that those demanding the West close down its industry whilst allowing other nations to ramp up theirs might, just might, have an agenda that is completely unrelated to the climate.


Anyway here’s a reminder of just what the BBC produces on behalf of the climate lobby, just one of many, many films the BBC airs in order to manufacture our consent….

‘Climate Change – Britain Under Threat’





And here’s what they don’t want you to see:

The Great Global Warming Swindle






The politics of being non-political



Lord Hall makes a big play of the BBC being non-political and a lot of noise about interference from politicians….which is all nonsense when you think about it.

The BBC is in essence a creation of the politicians set up to use soft power to control the unruly unwashed.  The BBC though oversteps its political masters’ boundaries and tries not only to influence how we, the Public, think and behave, but also to pressurise politicians to steer government policy in particular directions.  No wonder politicians want to interfere in how the BBC is run.  The BBC has set itself up as a government in all but name.

Much as I claim the BBC is ironically, after itself issuing constant ‘warnings from history’ about them, to blame for the rise of the Far Right due to its promotion of immigration and Islam Robert Aitken suggests the BBC’s attempt to stifle debate on the EU will lead to ever greater scepticism about the benefits of membership and may lead to a vote for Brexit.

Aitken finishes his piece with this statement about the power of the BBC to influence politicians…

‘The point about the BBC is this: if it gets behind an idea it can exert almost irresistible pressure on a government. If BBC journalists had been in favour (themselves) of a referendum collectively they could have made it happen. But, almost to a woman, they set themselves against a vote throughout the ’90s and into the new century; indeed they still endlessly repeat the trope that the referendum was forced on the government by Eurosceptic Tories – ignoring the polling evidence which shows the electorate has long wanted to have its say.’

The BBC does have enormous power over politicians, knows it, and has never been shy about using that power to pressurise politicians to alter their policies in a way that then reflects the BBC view.

Any wonder politicians think they have a right, a need, to rein in the BBC?  If the BBC wants politicians to stay out of its business then it should stay out of theirs and not try to govern Britain by the backdoor.






Lean and Green


Remember when the Telegraph was castigated for allegedly downplaying stories about HSBC as HSBC was a major advertiser at the paper?  The BBC went all out on the story as it involved the Tories as well and was in the long run up to the election.

Wonder if they will do much digging over this story from Bishop Hill?…

‘Some years back I was discussing the state of environmental coverage in the media with someone from the Telegraph. I commented that I thought it was very strange that the Tele had taken Geoffrey Lean on as a correspondent given that his views were pretty much anathema to most of its readers.

“Ah, that’s simple” I was told. “He’s not there for the benefit of the readers but because green advertisers want him”. This made perfect sense at the time.

Now, as we all know, times are increasingly hard for the green blob, with George Osborne apparently wanting to put the whole renewables industry on a starvation diet. So it was interesting to see this from Lean on Twitter this morning:

Somehow I doubt it.



BBC climate lies


The BBC tells us…

‘A combination of a strong El Nino and human-induced global warming made the five-year period from 2011 to 2015 the warmest on record, researchers say.’

Hmmm….yes but isn’t the global warming still on pause?   2010 was another warming El Nino…so why cherry pick from 2011 and not mention that?  The global temperature has stayed pretty much the same in the period quoted, and longer, it may be hot but no hotter than ‘normal’ so the BBC’s claim that it is the hottest for 5 year period in history is disengenuous to say the least, intended to create a false impression of a planet on fire.  The BBC and its co-conspirators always try to tell us that the period from 1998 is too short to be significant and yet they now claim a 5 year period is significant to their narrative of a warming globe.


The BBC’s top headline tonight….

Global rallies demand climate action

Kind of gives the impression that there is a world wide movement to tackle the climate…which is curious as only two days ago the BBC told us this (a now hard to find report, gone fom its pages)…

Public support for tough climate deal ‘declines’

Sky gives us a different angle that the BBC doesn’t…about the Public’s growing scepticism about not only climate deals but the causes of climate change…

Poll: Growing Doubts Over Climate Change Causes

The finding comes on the eve of the UN summit in Paris that is expected to result in big cuts in greenhouse gas emissions.

Why would the BBC not like to reveal that?

The Express isn’t hiding the uncomfortable truthes…

Global warming FARCE: Overwhelming majority of Britons think climate change is FAKE


The BBC though is still twisting the story telling us…

‘Canada, France, Spain and the UK are the only four with majorities in favour of their governments taking a leading role.’

Once again a misleading slant on the story as in all those countries save Spain support is waning…



And do I believe that there is majority support for heavy-handed government action to tackle climate change in the UK?  No.  How many people really believe the major cause of climate change is man-made?  How many would attribute any man-made climate change to CO2 if they knew the facts?  Not many.  And yet the BBC et al present CO2 as the major factor in climate change and the one that must be tackled before any other….a convenient approach that fits neatly with the Left’s ambitions to undermine Western economic and industrial power.

Here’s a more reasoned and considered comment on the climate, from WUWT not the BBC…Climate and Human Civilization over the last 18,000 years.


And another thing….from the BBC…

Prince Charles links climate change to Syria conflict


Been there, done that…from WUWT…

The ultimate ‘Godwin effect’ – Science In 1941: ‘Global Warming Caused Hitler’



Increasing warmer temperatures throughout the world may produce a trend toward dictatorial governments in the opinion of Dr Clarence A Mills, professor of experimental medicine at the University of Cincinnati. In fact, Dr Mills believes that the rise to power of Adolf Hitler in Germany and Benito Mussolini in Italy may be due in part to the gradual warming temperature of the world. —The Mason City Globe-Gazette, 27 March 1941





Love Islam Or Shut Up

Dr. Deepa Kumar.


Bagley in the comments brought us the latest bit of ‘race’ baiting from BBC Trending, something that the BBC specialises in, generating anger, dissent and conflict where it can with tales of the White man’s evil ways or of the treachery of ex-Muslims and ‘native informants’ in criticising their own community.

Craig at Is the BBC biased?….LOL...has helpfully transcribed much of the interview and I have pulled the BBC interviewer’s comments out for your pleasure….note her chosen defender of the faith is a Muslim BBC employee…interesting to see how he wants to shut the critics up….what’s he hiding?…

‘Thousands explained why they left Islam online, using the hashtag #ExMuslimBecause, but some thought the discussion was badly timed, and labelled it ‘hateful’. We meet the woman behind the campaign, and ask if she intended to create such a pointed conversation.

A-MT: Is there a risk that there are others out there who would look at a hashtag like this and might not necessarily be prepared for the kind of backlash that might lie in store for them? 

A-MT: One of the tweets that I noticed was saying that this hashtag was more or less giving people an opportunity to bash Muslims. What do you have to say in response to a statement like that?

A-MT: ‘Can you speak?’ is one thing’; ‘when to speak’ is another. And when you look at the recent news events – say, for example  what happened in Paris, the Paris attacks. Let’s look at the refugee crisis around Europe. Did it occur to you that this was possibly not the right time to put out a hashtag like this? 

So quite a strident tone coming from Maryam Namazie.’


So in summary….explaining why you want to leave Islam is hateful, islamophobic, bigoted, bashing Muslims, dangerous in the present day climate [for Muslims] and doesn’t play well with the BBC’s narrative on immigration.

And you thought you could trust the BBC to bring you the news unadulterated, uncorrupted, by the bigotry, partiality, dishonesty and stupid, childlike naivete of its employees.

Not the first time the BBC has wanted to silence Maryam Namazie.…and reported less than honestly…

Open letter to BBC Sunday Morning Live on its unfair and biased reporting

Maryam Namazie
8 September 2010 BBC Sunday Morning Live invited me to join its debate on whether ‘it is right to condemn Iran for stoning’ on 5 September 2010 via webcam. During the debate, the programme allowed only two interventions via webcam (that of Suhaib Hassan of the Islamic Sharia Council and Mohammad Morandi of Tehran University – both of whom were in support of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani’s stoning and/or execution). I (who had presumably been invited to defend Ms Ashtiani and oppose stoning in the debate) was never given the opportunity to speak. To the BBC’s Sunday Morning Live Programme I am writing to ask that you rectify gross inaccuracies regarding Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani’s case and that of stoning in Iran in your upcoming programme……

Back to BBC is Maryam Namazie’s response in full….

Ayatollah BBC and #ExMuslimBecause

I was interviewed by Anne-Marie Tomchak for thirty minutes for BBC Trending on 26 November. Despite my also having referred 4 ex-Muslims, including those who maintained anonymity whilst Tweeting for #ExMuslimBecause due to fears for their safety, the programme spoke to Mobeen Azhar and Rashid Dar, two men who identified themselves as Muslims, about my segment which was highly edited for BBC World Service on 28 November.

The presenter Tomchak and the two Muslim men framed the entire discussion about apostasy and the basic human right to leave and criticise Islam without fear into one that was “hateful,” “bigoted,” “an attack on Muslims,” “Islamophobic,” “opportunistic,” “quite offensive”…

By doing so, they intentionally blurred the distinction between the criticism of Islam (an idea) and Islamism (a far-Right political movement) with bigotry against Muslims. For far too long, apologists like the BBC have conflated the three in order to silence critics by deeming any criticism of Islam and Islamism as bigotry against people. This despite the fact that Muslims are not a homogeneous community or society.  There are many secularists, freethinkers and even ex-Muslims amongst them (as the trending of #ExMuslimBecause shows). For every Muslim who opposes ex-Muslims, there are others who support the right of ex-Muslims to leave or criticise Islam without fear.

Nonetheless, Tomchak and her “experts” insist that #ExMuslimBecause was “bad timing” due to the Paris attacks. For apologists,  the timing for dissent is never right.

Whilst we mourn our dead in Paris, we must not forget the countless others killed by ISIS and Islamists, including this very month in Lebanon, Nigeria, Mali, Iraq, Egypt, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Afghanistan… as well as those executed perfectly legally via Sharia laws in Iran, Saudi Arabia… The refugee crisis is in large part due to this unbridled brutality.

In fact, if there ever was a “right” time to challenge Islam and Islamism, it is now.

Yet Tomchak says: “quite a strident tone coming from Maryam Namazie and the way she uses the term Islamists,” whilst Azhar says: “it’s quite uncompromising since there are many shades of grey amongst Islamists; lumping Islamists together is not going to be most helpful”… Luckily, many Muslims do not have the sympathy for Islamism that Azhar and Tomchak show. After all, Islamism kills more Muslims than anyone else.

What is embarrassingly obvious in this BBC report is that along with the misinformation on the “theory” behind apostasy laws which kills apostates  as we speak, any patronising “concern” for Muslims is fundamentally about defending Islam and Islamism at the expense of dissenters.

That’s why their response to #ExMuslimBecause is so hateful; it sees dissent through Islamist eyes.

It is also why the report widely misses the mark for basic standards in objective journalism.

Maybe this example will help Tomchak and the BBC understand what they have got so very wrong (though I am not holding my breath). What they’ve done in their report on #ExMuslimBecause is similar to labelling critics of the Magdelene Laundries or Symphsiotomy as “strident,” “Catholic bashers” or “openly hostile to the Catholic Church.” Such accusations do a gross injustice to those who are merely demanding what Tomchak and the two Muslim men take for granted – the right to believe in what one wants without fear.


I know the BBC and its “Muslim community specialists” would have preferred us to raise #ExMuslimBecause in private over coffee. Regressive laws and fascist movements, however, are not pushed back over private chats but via normalising the taboo and through very public challenges and renunciations.

Every movement – from the demand to end racial apartheid, for gender equality, and LGBT rights – were battles fought in the public square. The right to apostasy and blasphemy is no different.

Remove all the BBC’s bogus accusations and one fact remains: the right to religion comes with a corresponding right to be free from religion. #ExMuslimBecause is part of the effort to bring about that hugely important change.

Surely this Tweet is bashing Muslims, don’t they feel left out with all these memorials for the people killed by Muslims?  Careful what you say and think……


How ironic…the BBC’s Anne-Marie Tomchak is an ardent feminist and yet she seeks to silence women who leave Islam, and leave quite possibly because of the way they are treaated by that religion…

Here she is boasting of her work in the feminist cause…..




Saudi Arabian Delights


You can’t know whether to laugh or cry at the BBC’s tricks and desperate attempts to make us love Islam.

The latest is a rather sinister attempt to brainwash our children with a new version of the Arabian Nights...Jamillah and Aladdin..starting tonight on CBBC.

I noted the programme in the Sunday Times TV review.  I was going to ignore it though I suspected it was a programme with a message or two, not just a positive feminine role model with a ‘feisty girl’ in the lead, but perhaps the usual subtext about diversity, immigrants and of course Islam, it being set in the Middle East…love the characters, love Islam if just by default.  Then I had a look at the Independent’s write up and that just confirmed I was probably right about the motivation behind producing such a programme….

Why children should watch CBBC’s Jamillah and Aladdin this weekend

A new series based on the classic Arabian Nights story will air on Cbeebies and CBBC this weekend. It’s just the sort of diverse, positive series children need

Since the terror attacks in Paris two weeks ago, much has been written about what we should let children watch on television, and how much exposure to the news is advisable for young kids.

As the name suggests, it’s based on the classic Arabian Nights’ tale.

It’s perfect timing, I think. When we want to show children that other countries and cultures can be celebrated and enjoyed – and are not just places of bombs and fear. The cast looks like the Britain we recognise – the three lead rolls are played by black actors – and the characters are inquisitive. Genie translates Jamillah’s request for “an adventure” into a trip to the Middle East. She is transfixed in the bazaar by the snake charmers the belly dancers and the street vendors. Maybe some of the children watching will recognise the name Baghdad from the news and come to think about this city and others like it in a different light. And in Jamillah and Aladdin’s friendship they might see that while not all children look, talk or have the same beliefs as us, we can still all be mates and equals not foes.

Of course, it’s just a TV programme and we shouldn’t over-blow its importance, But, if we continue with positive, diverse programming, then it can play a role in shaping the next generation’s belief systems, values and morals.In an interview, 11-year-old Blossom was asked what her three wishes would be, given the chance. Her first? “Equality in the world.” Nice.

Sweet. But propaganda all the same, showing us loveable Muslims from which we, the children, are supposed to pick up the unspoken message that if ‘muslims’ are loveable then Islam could be as well.  What did the Jesuits, channelling Aristotle apparently, say?   Give Me the Child Until He is Seven, and I Will Show You the Man‘”

Shame the BBC is promoting another set of religious fanatics to young impressionable minds…..perhaps a better education about Islam would be more helpful to the children to make them understand what is going on in the world and what is the motivation behind terror attacks rather than a cosy little programme promoting love and harmony when unfortunately one side has no intention of ‘honouring’ such sentiments.


This cartoon in the Times illustrates the problem with the narrative which buries its head in the sand on one subject…..


The problem isn’t primarily the fact that Saudi is a harsh regime chopping off heads,  the problem is the reasons why they do it…and, more importantly, why they are allowed to come into this country spreading highly inflammatory fundamentalist Islamic propaganda through Mosques, universities, Islamic ‘information’ centres, madrassas and of course not forgetting the close ties with the great and the good in our society, not to mention the Government itself.

The problem is the theology behind the sword not the fact of the sword itself.  But who dares mention that?….except Rod Liddle in the Sunday Times who, jokingly, em, suggests we would be just as well to bomb Luton as the Islamic State because it is the ideology not IS itself that is the problem. Bomb IS and ‘radical’ Islam still exists….hoever bombing IS will stop a lot of killing on a grand and savage scale.













Brave new world ushered in by the BBC


The future’s bright….

A leaked document by German intelligence chiefs warned that fully integrating hundreds of thousands of what it termed ‘illegal migrants’ will be ‘impossible’.

It added: ‘We are importing Islamic extremism, Arab anti-Semitism, national and ethnic conflicts of other peoples, as well as a different understanding of society and law.’

The document, published in the heavyweight Die Welt newspaper, added: ‘Intelligence agencies cannot cope with these problems, [or] the response from the German population.’

The BBC, charged with maintaining civil society and cohesion, has done everything it possibly can to create a situation where this is impossible, it has created the exact opposite of that with conflict and social collapse the likely outcome.

The road to hell and good intentions.  Never was there a finer example.

Fixing the narrative



The BBC has always been against ‘austerity’ and spending cuts and things haven’t changed as in the week before Osborne’s Autumn Statement the BBC ran a spoiler clearly intended to put the case for spend, spend, spend.

Wake Up To Money invited on a guest a day to give us their verdict on spending cuts….not one thought they were a good idea.

Vince Cable tells us the government’s planned cuts could hit UK economic growth.

Former senior civil servant, Sir Richard Mottram, criticises planned spending cuts.

Adam Parsons and Mickey Clark look ahead to the publication of a major report into the collapse of HBOS in 2008. They also hear from one of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s economic advisers [No prizes for guessing her opinion]

With a week to go before Chancellor George Osborne announces the outcome of the spending review Adam Parsons speaks to former Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin about his experience of having to make similar major cuts.[Despite making ‘similar cuts’ he was strongly against further ones]

With the Chancellor due to deliver his spending review next week, Businesswoman and former Dragon on TV’s Dragons’ Den Hilary Devey tells Adam Parsons that further cuts could be going too far and investment is needed to maintain growth.


Ah yes, that old classic…too far too fast and ‘investment’ is needed to encourage growth.  Plan B anyone?

The BBC lined up a series of critics of government cuts and still claims it is not biased?  Pull the other one.
