Spitting mad

She was later diagnosed with the infectious lung disease and was forced into treatment


The BBC are always the first to give a platform to those who criticise the police, unless it’s a Tory minister, then the police are the good guys.

A man attacks the police with a knife and they taser him…the BBC are shocked at the police’s level of ‘violence’, so unnecessary, they could have talked and reasoned with him. Similarly with spit-hoods.  The use of such barbaric devices degrades and dehumanises the victim of  the police assault…in light of which I post this from the Mail just so that the holier-than-thou BBC journo’s who don’t ever have to deal with drunks, druggies and mad knifemen understand why spit hoods might be used, apart from the generally disgusting nature of being spat in the face:

Policewoman, 35, dies after thug spat in her face: Ukrainian officer contracted tuberculosis while arresting criminal

A policewoman has died after contracting a contagious disease when a thug spat in her face during an arrest.

Arina Koltsova, from Kiev, Ukraine, was arresting a suspect on New Year’s Day – unaware that he was suffering from tuberculosis (TB). While carrying out her duties she was spat on by the man.

The 35-year-old remained untreated for some time, before she collapsed at work one day. 

She was later diagnosed with the infectious lung disease and was forced into treatment.

Her on-duty partner, Officer Mikhail Kindrakevich, wrote: ‘She became ill after New Year’s Day. She had arrested this guy and he spat in her face. Some time later she collapsed.

‘She had received treatment. She underwent chemotherapy, she was fed food through an IV drip and she had lost a lot of weight.’

The chemotherapy, often used to treat acute cases of tuberculosis, weakened Ms Koltsova and caused her to become severely undernourished.

A recent selfie shows her gaunt face and the short hair that she had towards the end of her life.

Ms Koltsova died on Monday and was buried in Kiev two days later.




Blame it on the bogus


Poor little Ali Khan, aged 6, and a half.  The BBC found the poor young lad sobbing inconsolably in an East London street not far from their office from which they run ‘TellAuntie’, a goto service for Muslims who feel hard done by in life and want to blame it on the Kufar.  The BBC is happy to oblige….a butterfly flaps its wings in far off Japan and the effects on a Muslim in East London can be terrible…disenchantment, disadvantage, disengagement, disaffection..terrible, terrible effects…but the BBC is there to gather the evidence, analyse it and then conclude that Muslims are under siege and that they must be allowed to live their lives as Muslims free from the liberal oppression that stops them following their religious teachings on Jews, Women and non-believers.

What of poor little Ali?  Oh, that was Brexit that made him cry.  A trip to the sweet shop with delighted expectations only to have them dashed by the harsh reality of Brexit’s economic downturn.  He went in happy knowing he had the pennies to buy some chews only to come out empty handed and disappointed as the plunging Pound meant his favourite sweets were now out of reach, beyond his meagre means.  The Brexiteers have betrayed the young.  The bastards.

Still its not only young Ali Khan that is suffering….Barclays is too.  Earlier Lloyds announced they were shutting up shop and the BBC began the day saying this was a result of changing consumer practices and an efficiency drive by Lloyds with a warning that maybe Brexit might have an effect in the future…that morphed later in the day into a singular story that Lloyds was closing down its operations because of Brexit.

Barclays was reported as also suffering from Brexit...the BBC again deciding that Brexit was the main subject of debate in its report…it starts with a quick nod towards the real reasons Barclays’ profits fell and then gets on to what the BBC want to talk about….

Commenting on the impact of Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, Jes Staley, who became chief executive last year, said he had no plans to alter the bank’s strategy of selling parts of the business and strengthening its retail and investment banking operations.

He said: “We remain confident that it is the right plan for Barclays, and see no reason to adjust it, or the pace of delivery, in light of the vote by the UK last month to exit the EU.”

However, the bank set out a number of risks it now faces, which include possible changes to “passporting” rights that allows the bank to operate across the EU.

It also it faces uncertainty over whether there will be any changes to freedom of employee movement, which would “impact Barclays’ access to the EU talent pool” as well as “decisions on hiring from the EU of critical roles”.

I like this ‘analysis’ by the BBC…..it has trawled the ‘small print’ and made its own intepretation to suit:

Analysis: Dominic O’Connell, BBC Today business presenter

While Jes Staley did not make the blunt Brexit warning made yesterday by his opposite number of Lloyds Banking Group, Antonio Horta Orsorio, the fine print of the Barclays statement makes plain its concerns.

Trouble is back in April the BBC was reporting this…

Barclays profits drop by a quarter

Barclays has reported a 25% drop in profits for the first quarter of the year, dragged down by the performance of divisions it plans to sell off.

Barclays warned last month that its first quarter would be weaker than last year due to turbulent market conditions and a “particularly strong” March 2015.


Similarly the BBC is reporting that Foxton’s have been losing money due to Brexit and the London housing market plunging….

Foxtons estate agency profits tumble amid Brexit vote

High-profile London estate agency Foxtons has announced a 42% fall in profits, blaming uncertainty around the EU referendum for the fall.

After the sensationalised headline its only half way down the report that you start to get the qualifications and get  outs…all is not half as bad as the BBC’s headline suggests…and Brexit is by no means the main culprit.

Trouble is…last June, 2015, the BBC were reporting this:

Central London house prices fall ‘by up to 22%’ – report

House prices in the smartest parts of London have fallen by up to 22% since last Autumn, according to the property services group LSL.

In Westminster it claimed there had been a fall of 22% between a peak in November and the end of May.

It blamed the fall on the new stamp duty regime, introduced in December, which penalises expensive properties.

As we have noted before the BBC has a tendency to isolate the UK economy and to associate any downturn with Brexit completely ignoring that fact that the US economy is pretty much mirroring ours…and yet they have no Brexit…here’s the latest from over there….

US GDP growth misses forecasts despite spending surge

The US economy grew at a much slower pace than expected in the second quarter and GDP was revised down in the first three months of the year.

The world’s largest economy grew at an annual rate of 1.2% in the three months to June, far below forecasts of 2.6%,

Growth for the first quarter was revised down from 1.1% to 0.8%.


If you want a far more balanced look at the UK post Brexit you couldn’t go far wrong by looking at the Spectator’s editorial:

The post-Brexit economy is more open than ever

It is dawning on all but the most stubborn Remainers that the world still wants to do business with the UK

Since the referendum, these anticipations of doom have continued. It is rather strange to watch. Encouraging economic news — the increase in high-street spending, the buoyant demand for jobs through recruitment agencies — is brushed aside. But the surveys about sentiment, which are more negative, are being seized upon as proof of the Remain side being right all along. The Brexit vote might have passed, but the debate goes on: its advocates looking for signs of optimism, and its opponents muttering about ‘hard Brexit’ and almost willing economic collapse.

Far from retreating into isolation, the UK economy now looks more open than ever. It is gradually dawning on all but the most stubborn in the Remain camp that the world still wants to do business with an independent UK — and that, freed from having to tag along with EU trade deals, this country is now able to negotiate mutually favourable arrangements with fast-growing economies such as India and China. Meanwhile, the EU’s problems continue. Standard and Poor’s, one of the world’s top credit ratings agencies, warned recently that the EU is ‘unsustainable in its current form’.

This is precisely the concern that persuaded 52 per cent of Brits that our long-term future is best served outside the EU.

Brexit is neither an economic drag nor a stimulus: it is simply the removal of a constraint. What Britain now goes on to achieve depends entirely on the vision and ambition of those in power. Politicians and businesses should snap out of their sulk, and see Brexit for what it is: the greatest opportunity ever handed to a government by an electorate.

Confidence in business is all…it leads to investment, new jobs, training and a vigour to succeed…the BBC does everything it can to undermine that confidence in the UK as it paints a picture of doom and gloom, a picture of a UK destined to be an economic basketcase left on the sidelines of history.  The BBC’s narrative is one that does enormous damage to the UK just as its pro-Islamic terrorist, anti-Israel, anti-Western, anti-the Union, pro-mass immigration narratives create a future that can only be one of conflict and destruction as nation states are broken up and mini-states arise governed by whoever is the strongest.  The BBC’s naive ‘good intentions’ lead to a Europe that descends into the hell of Somalia run by warlords and religious fanatics.

The government’s own predictions suggest that is a case scenario that is highly likely as immigration destroys homogentiy, loyalty, trust, co-operation and the rule of law.

The best course of action for peace and economic stability would be to close down the BBC and sack all those naive simpletons who work there.






Plus Ça Change



The BBC has been excitably raising the ‘issue’ of what what happens in Scotland and Northern Ireland post Brexit, acting as the unquestioning mouthpiece of the Scottish National Socialist Party and the IRA as they both bluster unconvincingly about the end of the Union.  The BBC regurgitates their rhetoric as if it were fact, that Scotland and NI are going to leave the UK and that there is a legititmate case for both as a result of Brexit.

That’s a nonsense but the BBC never seems to challenge such blether despite filling the airwaves with them and Brexit.

Curious then that today you won’t find any mention of a recent poll in Scotland that says there has been no change  in the Scot’s desire to stay as part of the UK despite the Brexit result.

You might have thought that such a significant and politically important finding would be headline news on the BBC considering their dogged determination to report everything ‘Independence’, well, at least the rantings of Sturgeon, but that is reserved for the fall in the use of plastic bags.  From the Mail….

Scots DO want to remain part of the UK: New blow to Nicola Sturgeon as poll reveals less than half the residents want Scotland to be an independent country 

Most Scots still want to stay in Britain despite a Brexit vote, a new poll has revealed.

In a blow to Nicola Sturgeon, a total of 53 per cent of those quizzed said they want to remain in the UK.

The YouGov poll found 47 per cent want Scotland to become an independent country.

The results show little difference since before the referendum in May – when the figures were 55 per cent wanting to stay and 45 per cent favouring independence.


The BBC has been desperately peddling the Scottish National Socialist’s propaganda in the hope that the UK will split up, always a BBC ambition, and yet news that the Scots don’t want to go doesn’t get a mention, not on the Frontpage, not on the UK page, not on the Scottish page, not on the politics page and not even on a page dedicated to the latest news on Brexit:

Brexit Watch: At-a-glance day-by-day summer briefing

Now I’ve had a glance, I’ve had a damned good look, but I can’t find a single mention of this on the BBC site.

A big story, as Sturgeon makes such a lot of noise about the subject,  and yet the BBC seems reluctant to highlight it for some reason.

I waited a few more hours before posting and still nothing…and look, on the BBC site just 1 minute ago:

Independence campaigners march in Glasgow

“Independence now for us is very much back on the agenda.”

Supporters of the Union have played down the significance of the march.

Note the BBC tone…how ‘independence’ is significant and back on the agenda [hmmm…poll suggests not so much] and that Unionists are ‘playing down the significance’….well they would wouldn’t they, with justification, if they’d read the polls BBC.

Not a single mention of the poll.  Not as if the BBC don’t know about it…they note what the papers say…but can’t be bothered to actually do any leg work themselves…perhaps the BBC just isn’t interested eh?…

Stories of a drop in support for Scottish independence and a Police Scotland probe into online child abuse lead Scotland’s Saturday newspapers.

The front page of the Herald features a [] poll showing that a surge in support for Scottish independence after the Brexit vote has been reversed.

The Saturday edition of the i paper also leads with the YouGov poll, which claimed that more Scots backed remaining part of the UK post-Brexit than favoured leaving the UK to stay in the EU.


The i




Every day’s a good day to hide bad news



The BBC trumpeted the IMF’s support for the EU during the referendum, making no mention of course that Lagarde owes her job, not once, but twice, to Osborne’s support, but now, now the BBC has decided all things IMF are not worth bothering about really.

Way, way down on the World page, didn’t make it to the frontpage, we have this small story:


Doesn’t give much away does it that title?  Doesn’t give away that the IMF has been savaged in an excoriatinig report that utterly undermines its competence and credibility.  The BBC instead produces a very anodyne analysis and ends up saying all is well with the world….and utterly fails to note that the IMF comes in for serious criticism about its unthinking and highly damaging support for the EU.  Who can doubt that a body that produces “superficial and mechanistic” analysis and is a unquestioning supporter of the EU is not one that can be trusted to pronounce on anything as complex and controversial as Brexit….no wonder the BBC doesn’t want to talk about it too much.

What the BBC fails to do the Telegraph thankfully does:

IMF admits disastrous love affair with the euro, apologises for the immolation of Greece

The International Monetary Fund’s top staff misled their own board, made a series of calamitous misjudgments in Greece, became euphoric cheerleaders for the euro project, ignored warning signs of impending crisis, and collectively failed to grasp an elemental concept of currency theory. 

This is the lacerating verdict of the IMF’s top watchdog on the Fund’s tangled political role in the eurozone debt crisis, the most damaging episode in the history of the Bretton Woods institutions. 

It describes a “culture of complacency”, prone to “superficial and mechanistic” analysis,  and traces a shocking break-down in the governance of the IMF, leaving it unclear who is ultimately in charge of this extremely powerful organisation. 

Asia and Latin America are clearly incensed at the way EU insiders used the Fund to rescue their own rich currency union and banking system.

The three main bail-outs for Greece, Portugal, and Ireland were unprecedented in scale and character. The trio were each allowed to borrow over 2,000 percent of their allocated quota – more than three times the normal limit – and accounted for 80pc of all lending by the Fund between 2011 and 2014.

The report said the whole approach to the eurozone was characterised by “groupthink” and intellectual capture. They had no fall-back plans on how to tackle a systemic crisis in the eurozone – or how to deal with the politics of a multinational currency union – because they had ruled out any possibility that it could happen.

“Before the launch of the euro, the IMF’s public statements tended to emphasize the advantages of the common currency, “ it said. Some staff members warned that the design of the euro was fundamentally flawed but they were overruled.

“After a heated internal debate, the view supportive of what was perceived to be Europe’s political project ultimately prevailed,” it said.

This pro-EMU bias continued to corrupt their thinking for years.

At root was a failure to grasp the elemental point that currency unions with no treasury or political union to back them up are inherently vulnerable to debt crises. States facing a shock no longer have sovereign tools to defend themselves. Devaluation risk is switched into bankruptcy risk.


Last month is so last year


Remember when the PMI figures came out and the BBC screamed from the rooftops about a ‘dramatic deterioration’ in the economy since Brexit?…

Brexit causes dramatic drop in UK economy, data suggests

Britain’s decision to leave the EU has led to a “dramatic deterioration” in economic activity, not seen since the aftermath of the financial crisis.

What is interesting about the BBC’s little report is that the IFS’s Paul Johnson doesn’t figure in it.  Normally the goto guy for the BBC.  Why doesn’t he figure?  Because earlier on the BBC he stated that these figures tell us nothing yet, there is no significant data about the effect of Brexit available yet.  Just why would the BBC not repeat that message throughout the day as they normally would with a soundbite from the IFS instead opting for ‘dramatic deterioration of the economy’?

Curiously the BBC has reined back on the hyperbole for the latest economic data.  We must be more careful how we interpret it….here’s the news….

UK economic growth sped up ahead of Brexit vote

And here’s the views from Ahmed who did a splendid job during the run up to the referendum in pushing the Remain message….

Take care over these economic figures

Looking in the rear view mirror doesn’t always tell you much about the road ahead.

And that is essentially what today’s second quarter economic growth figures are about – a health check on the road behind us, not a snap shot of the here and now.

That does not mean that positive figures should be dismissed, just so much pre-referendum chaff.

What does he mean ‘we’ shouldn’t dismiss them….it’s the likes of Ahmed who does the dismissing and indeed seems to be doing his best to spread the doubt.  Funny how I seem to remember the BBC headlining in the run up to the referendum that the uncertainty was effecting businesses even then and that lack of confidence was damaging the economy.  So now that seems not to be the case as the economy in that period ‘boomed’ and anyway, apparently, the figures show us nothing about the future…one month is so last year isn’t it Ahmed?

Odd how the BBC is refusing to publish any information about trade deals that looks good for Britain at the moment…..where’s the headlines about huge investments in Britain?  From Guido:

Everybody’s Investing in Brexit Britain

Three huge businesses have announced major UK investments in the space of 24 hours – in some cases contrary to what their officials claimed prior to the referendum vote. GlaxoSmithKline has announced £275 million of fresh investment, London’s City Airport is getting a £344 million expansion, and Deutsche Börse’s shareholders overwhelmingly approved its merger with the London Stock Exchange. A vote endorsing London as the enduring financial capital of the world post-Brexit.

Undoubtedly there will be businesses that flee but also ones that come in…..the BBC only highlights the ones that flee.

Liked this from the BBC that it tacked onto the end of its ‘good news’ story:

The economy seems to be heading towards a “significant deterioration” in the second half of 2016, according to the National Institute of Economic and Social Research.

Connor Campbell, an analyst at Spreadex, agreed, saying: “Just because predictions of a slowdown pre-referendum appear to have been false, last week’s early glimpse at the Markit PMIs shows that the post-Brexit impact is in no way a bogeyman conjured by bitter Vote Remainers.”

The PMI figures show nothing just yet, they were the result not of post-Brexit bitterness conjured up by Remainers but by massive alarm and uncertainty conjured up by arrogant, scaremongering Remainers who didn’t really give a dman about the country’s economy as long as it stayed in the EU.

The next set of PMI figures, and the set after, will be the significant ones that may indicate a direction of travel for the economy…but we always knew that short term the economy would take a hit and long term things would bounce back and may be even better…with the added bonus of not having the EU deciding our politics for us and presiding over us with the ECJ.  The BBC always concentrates on economics and manages to forget the real purpose of Brexit…to take back political control with a major target of reducing immigration.







An enraged Biased BBC reader sent me this regarding the BBC Radio 4 Today programme this morning;

27/7/16 BBC Today programme. Discussing the murder of Father Jacques Hamel.

“John Humphries played back a recorded interview he did with a French philosopher who blamed Israel for creating the motivation for the cowardly murder. Humphries had editorial discretion on airing this pre-recorded interview and by his doing so reinforced the deliberate political correctness narrative of ‘terrorists are the victims’. Never once in 10 minutes of his broadcast did Humphries mention the word Islam let alone its teachings as a motivator of the murders. [Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”]

Humphries went onto challenge, in the same interview, a French government minister about the banning of face coverings in public places in France as being in part responsible for the terrorism.

The BBC yet again is putting our lives in danger with their left wing denial of terrorist cause and motivation.”

I agree with this entirely. The BBC are pushing the bizarre narrative that when Hollande “declared war on Islamic extremism” he has triggered Islamic extremism. Only the BBC could find this a logical conclusion but then again, and as I repeatedly point out, they really are Islam’s little helpers. Agree?

Religious motivation?


The BBC graciously admits there might be an Islamic angle to the murder of a priest in France today…

President Francois Hollande said the men claimed to be from so-called Islamic State (IS).

Speaking in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, he said the attackers had committed a “cowardly assassination” and France would fight IS “by all means”.

Fraank Gardner isn’t 100% convinced…

The selection of a church by the attackers, whatever their motives turn out to be, crosses a new red line in the grim history of recent attacks on continental Europe.

I’m sure he has a psychiatrist on standby to talk us through the issues…on hold just now because ‘There was no immediate word on the identity of the hostage-takers.’

Certain to find they are poor lads from a Muslim ghetto abandoned by the French state, alienated and angry at the way Muslims are treated….I could get a job as a BBC journo..no?

However it can’t be long before the equivocations start….the BBC  [Frankie boy] are already looking to point the finger of blame…

News that one of the attackers was on the French government’s terror watch-list, known as the S list, will prompt many to question its purpose if he can remain at large to carry a knife into a church.

Always looking for a new angle on a story…except the obvious one.




I suppose this item on the BBC was inevitable. From the TODAY schedule earlier..

“The right wing German party Alternatif fur Deutschland says the German Chancellor Angela Merkel is responsible for bringing terror to Germany through her open door refugee policy. But most other German politicians have stopped short of linking the recent attacks to the Middle East. Dr Peter Ammon is the German Ambassador to the UK.”

It’s really amazing to watch the European political establishment and the media, including the BBC of course, deny reality. We see the German Police twist in the wind as they think up all kinds of ludicrous excuses to cover the simple fact that Merkel’s Open Borders policy has been a catastrophic disaster that may engulf Germany into Germanistan.
