Northern Delights

What event was Trump referring to when he mentioned Sweden?  We don’t know [Trump has confirmed that he was referring to a report on Fox about the effects of migration on Swedish society…and note he never referred to ‘an attack’, terrorist or otherwise, in his speech…and yet all his critics say he did…just who is providing the fake news as well as burying their heads in the sand about migration?].

My statement as to what’s happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.

The BBC ignores the rape and crime statistics from these countries just as it ignored Rotherham for so long, just as it ignores the Jewish exodus from Europe and even today it ignores the reports of yet another probable  ‘Trojan Horse’ plot by Muslims to hijack a British school….on the frontpage of the Times this morning and in other papers now.   This remember is the BBC that told us the first Trojan Horse plot was a hoax driven by racism, paranoia and Islamophobia, the BBC that failed to mention that the ringleader was the same man who authored the MCB’s 2007 instruction manual to schools on how to ‘accomodate’ Muslim pupils and make them feel more welcome…this document was described by the official reports into the Trojan Horse plot as a blueprint for the plot.

A counter extremism expert claimed to the Sunday Times there was a “significant problem” of Islamist infiltration in Oldham.

Then again the BBC spends so much time trying to report, parse and discredit every word that comes out of Trump’s mouth that it is no surprise that they have no time for real journalism…and indeed spend much of it on Twitter telling us how clever they are…or, in the case of Jon Sopel insulting Jews….[H/T Craig at is the BBC biased?]…’oh dear’…did Sopel not spot the Jewish man in amongst the journalists before laughing about Hitler salutes?….


And probably no surprise that the banner photo on Sopel’s Twitter page is of him with Obama indicating his bias and a grand conceit.

    Hmmm, speaking of Nazis, I note that the BBC is showing SS GB tonight. They don’t miss a trick do they?


    • 7Clubs says:

      What lies behind the production of `SS-GB` is that the BBC for quite a while now makes copycat programmes of other companies successes.Amazon Prime had a huge success with a what if the Nazis had won story series `The Man in the High Castle` .Previously the BBC have tried to copy `Game of Thrones` `Homeland` etc.
      This is what second division TV production companies – copy over peoples ideas instead of backing original ideas.Behind the spin the BBC is now second rate at producing original TV series.Apart from `The Night Manager` Its best recent ones have been foreign language imports from France or Scandanavia
      This is why the BBC now lags behind Amazon/HBO & Netflix in getting global tv ratings for tv series`s


      • JosF says:

        You can also add “Fatherland” to that list


      • tarien says:

        Agree-as one that was a young boy in WW2, and knowing how my father, mother, & grandparents fought throughout that war here and abroad to protect this once great nation from being invaded by the Nazi regeme,I am just simply appauled to think that, such a programme which undermines the courage and fortitude that was shown as I have mentioned, should be considered suitable by the BBC et al to offer the viewing public is incomprehensible. Forgive my outburst but for GOD’S SAKE, what the Hell are these cretins thinking of. With the fight we have against the evil’s of Islam, such a prgramme sends out a worrying message, don’t you think?


    • kane says:

      The BBC are at the epicentre of the transformation of British society by Muslim immigration since 1997, read the new book by Gavin Cooke “The Auto-Genocides: Europe’s Immigration Armageddon” (Amazon and Kindle)


  2. Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

    Jon Sopel, in addition to being biased, is not as clever as he thinks he is.

    With a school-level knowledge of German and a layman’s knowledge of history, you could see that he has made TWO MISTAKES IN ONE WORD in this piece of Twitter humour (or virtue-signalling or whatever it was).

    (1) ‘Sieg’, meaning victory or triumph, should have a capital ‘S’ because it is a noun. This is the sort of thing you learn in Lesson 1 or 2 at the latest.

    (2) The spelling should NOT be ‘Seig’ but instead ‘Sieg’! Most of us know that the expression is pronounced something like ‘zeeg hiyl’; you could hardly not know in fact. The vowel sound in the first word is different from that in the second, so the spelling is likely to reflect this.

    Verdict: “Must try harder, Jon”.


    • Lucy Pevensey says:

      Correct Mustapha,

      The ei combination of letters in German is always pronounced as a long [I]
      German has far less variation of pronunciation than English.
      They tend to stick to the ‘rules’ of their language far better than we do.


      • ID says:


        Wenn ich mich nicht beirren lasse,…


      • crist says:

        Interestingly the pronunciation of “ie” and “ei” are the opposite in Swiss German


        • Rob in Cheshire says:

          Most Germans do not consider what the Swiss speak really German at all.


          • Lucy Pevensey says:

            Indeed The Schweiz Deutsch is quite odd sounding. I presume for native speakers it’s different. But if you’ve learned German as a second language the Swiss German sounds very odd. I’ve spent hours watching Swiss TV whilst on holiday trying to get the knack of it. I have so far been unsuccessful. I’m quite happy to keep trying though, any excuse to spend more time in Switzerland! Wonderful country.


          • Demon says:

            I once asked my Viennese aunt about Swiss German, she burst out laughing and said “Schwiezer Duetsch” (efectively verbally turning the vowels around in both words). Swiss pronunciation is considered amusing in Austria. I can speak a small* amount of German (and understand some* particularly with an Austrian twist) but have difficulty with the Swiss. English works better for me there.

            * Emphasis on the small


          • ID says:

            Swiss German is one of the Alemmanic dialects of German. Swabian of “schaffa, schaffa, Häusle baua” fame, spoken in Baden-Wurtemberg is alemannic and much nearer Swiss German than Hochdeutsch. What is essentially a reginal dialect in Germany has become one of the official languages in Switzerland. You could say the same thing about Platt in North Germany. Plattdeutsch and Dutch are mutually comprehensible, but Dutch has become a national language and Platt is a regional dialect.


    • king crimson says:

      Maybe Sopel’s on to something… ‘seig’ (in Norwegian) translates as ‘tenacious’. So the press were merely hailing the tenacious one.


  3. Gunner says:

    “‘Enemies of the people’: Trump remark echoes history’s worst tyrants”,
    and how the BBC’s website echoes Animal Farm and Pravda.

    “No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?”


    • Oldspeaker says:
      “‘Enemies of the people’: Trump remark echoes history’s worst tyrants” . More bile and venom. If this had been produced by a commercial or private concern then fair enough, instead it’s by an organisation funded by an illegal tax that thinks nothing of sending enforcers round to bully those that refuse to pay. Irony?


  4. quisquose says:

    Justin Webb currently chatting to two people from Sweden just now, confirming that Sweden is the most wonderful place on Earth. Leaving no doubt for Today listeners that Trump is mental somehow.


    • tarien says:

      Sweden is sadly known as the RAPE capital of Europe? I have too many statements, by Swedes, by investigating journalists & other confirmations from all over Europe, giving prime examples of what the Swedish people are suffering from Muslim immigration-that is what Trump was referring to- that follow the teachings of Islam & sharia law, yet the Swedes as well as us through government propaganda of multiculturalism, allow this affront to continue against decent people who try and follow the Christian values accoded us, but for how long?


  5. EnglandExpects says:

    Excellent summary of the BBC’s dissembling over Sweden. Its not some kind of multicultural paradise which has absorbed mass Muslim immigration without incident. The librarian interviewed, who is apparently Sweden’s official voice on twitter, sounded like a typical useful idiot, of which we have many in the UK on the liberal left when it comes to defending immigration . The BBC could have given a balanced report that also highlighted tbe problems that Sweden now faces . Naturally enough it didn’t .
    President Trump speaks off the cuff, he doesn’t read carefully crafted speeches from an auto cue . Occasionally his grammar is less than perfect . Sometimes he makes slightly obscure references . He’s not a professional politician . That’s what people voted for . But no other leading western politician has had the guts to refer to what’s happening in Sweden. We all read about it but from our leaders and the BBC there is a deafening silence .


    • ID says:


      The BBC cavils about minor details to show its defense of the true and good, yet keeps silent about things of importance that undermine its political agenda.
      The Nutall allegations could have been “exposed” months ago, but, of course,the “truth” can only be revealed when it will do maximum damage to ideological enemies. Nutall “confesses” “good friends did not die at Hillsborough”
      As I understand it, is the closeness of the friendship rather than the death of acquaintances that is disputed.


      • Gunner says:

        Now I may be guilty of “fake news”, but wasn’t the “offending” reference in question posted on Nutgall’s website in 2011 ? If so, then six years is a pretty long time for the great and the good to wait before revealing the “awful”l truth, but then I guess the timing just before a by-election is just co-incidence and not another political hatchet job….not that our revered broadcaster would be party to that of course.


        • ID says:

          As far as I can remember, the original allegation against Nutall was that he was falsely claiming to have been actually present at Hillsborough as a 12 yearold. The BBC have said nothing about this since. So was the original allegation true or not? Of course, we know it was false or they would have been able to substantiate it with great glee. This is the usual BBC ploy


          • Sir_Arthur_Strebe-Grebling says:

            bBBC NorthWest and bBBC Radio Merseyside are obsessed with parroting the Scousers’ view of Hillsborough. It is their lead ‘news’ at least once a week as the whingers find another minuscule item that can keep them grieving and bolster their revenge campaign. Contrary to normal investigative journalism, no-one is ever allowed to question anything.
            “Hillsborough” is used as the local equivalent of “racism”: using the word is regarded as a sure way of winning any discussion and ostracising one’s opponent.


  6. AsISeeIt says:

    The picture of the Washington press corps with hands raised reminds me of nothing more than a class of over-eager school kids. What is it with Sopel and his pals and their Nazi obsessions? Grow up, get over it, Sopel.


  7. AsISeeIt says:

    The left-leaning media are self-defeating in their attacks on Trump. In this case the media strategy on the difficulties in Sweden was keep quiet, to look away. In their rush to nitpick at Trump and to seize on his reference to Sweden they will simply encourage more of their audience to do their own research on the subject and find that yes, Trump was correct – there is a problem over there.


  8. JimS says:

    Radio 4’s Last Word treated us to favourite luvvy Maxine Peake whining on about Betty Tebbs, (who?), professional protestor, whose lifetime achievments ‘peaked’ at daubing on Conservative posters, running away from the police and delivering two fingers for ‘Trump’.


    • Alicia Sinclair says:

      Does a week go by without some lefty female refugee who got a good career as a community activist at Greenham Common doling out IUDs or turkey basters pegging it?
      Don`t think so-for this archetypal lefty stiff pops up nearly every week on Last Word.
      Utter junk-maybe if we clubbed together to get these lefty blowbacks a minibus to Zurich…Last Word could do a five minute piece with every lefty cliche…and then promise NOT to celebrate the empty barren lives of these old bats and hippies.
      Imagine if they spent as much time reviewing the deaths of ex- FCS and their “Hang Mandela” campaigns…wasn`t JUST John Bercow and John Carlisle was it?


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      I read the obituary of Betty Tebbs in the Daily Telegraph a few weeks ago (the obit page has not yet been ruined by the weirdo Barclay twins, but give them time).

      Tebbs was a classic Communist idiot of the sort who have infested our politics for many decades. According to the obit, after Hiroshima and Nagasaki, she went round her town painting “ban the bomb” on walls, so appalled was she by this imperialist act of aggression.

      By a coincidence, another obit on the same page was of a gentleman who had endured years of brutality as a prisoner of the Japanese. He kept a secret diary (discovery of which would have meant death), and he recorded that by August 1945 morale was very low, no-one could see an end in sight, and the men could not have lasted much longer. Then the atom bombs were dropped, and the war ended almost overnight. The lives of our surviving PoWs in the Far East were saved. Another few months of torture and starvation by the Japs and none of them would have made it.

      These are the men whose memory is defaced by Communist slime such as Betty Tebbs and the appalling Maxine Peake. I make it a rule never to watch a single thing this Communist agitator appears in, and I cannot honestly say I feel I have missed anything worth watching.


  9. JosF says:

    AsIseeIt “The left leaning mdia are self defeating in their attacks on Trump” Who bother with the MSM anymore apart from leftards and the sheeple, Those of us who are awake and who’s IQ gets above their shoe size go to the internet, alt-media, social media etc where we can access multiple sources then analyse them and work out what is fact and what is fake. We cant do that with the BBC, CNN, Channel 4, Al-Guardian and the rest of the lying, dying MSM can we oh no all we get from the BBC and the rest of the MSM is hand picked propaganda that suits the aganda of the MSM and its masters


  10. Wild Bill says:

    There has been a big problem with Islam in Sweden for years,I can’t understand why anyone in the West would try and hide problems like this, but they continue to do so, and who will lose in the end?


    • tarien says:

      Exactly other than the extreme propaganda penetrated against us to accept multiculturalism-however as placid as it appears the Swedish people have been and appear to still be, over their country now being known as the Rape capital of Europe is quite disarming for us all-goodness knows why any female would want to visit Sweden, whether with other friends or family is quite incomprehensible-wake up Sweden before its too late-or is it?


  11. vesnadog says:

    “What event was Trump referring to when he mentioned Sweden?”

    You know what guys n gals! I believe Trump may – I only mean may – have heard or watched this incident re Sweden on one of 2 TV stations. It was either on NDTV (Newdehli-tv) or Algaziara TV (English language version). A camera crew did a piece about 25 mins long and I seem to remember them interviewing a gang of Muslim teenagers on a Swedish street about how they feel since coming to Sweden. Then interviewing some white local adults about what they think now that their town (s) are so over run with Muslims.


  12. Lucy Pevensey says:

    I am noticing that in the image tweeted by Sopel where he quips about Nazi salutes.
    There appears to be a Jewish man on the far right (far right no pun intended). I could be mistaken but the fellow with the beard appears to be wearing a yamaka.


  13. 13th Floor says:

    I believe he was referring to a TV programme about some of the problems happening in Sweden, but the BBC probably knew that all along.


  14. NCBBC says:

    Fox about the effects of migration on Swedish society…and note he never referred to ‘an attack’, terrorist or otherwise, in his speech…and yet all his critics say he did…just who is providing the fake news as well as burying their heads in the sand about migration

    The left has been so busy hiding the fact that Sweden is the rape capital of Europe, it makes them very touchy on the subject of Sweden.


  15. TPO says:

    There are two sides to this story.
    First the ‘envy of the world’.
    Then the truth.
    “Trump may have been unclear, but Sweden experiencing a migrant crime wave”

    If you value real news as opposed to BBC propaganda then please take the time to read the Fox News article.


  16. vesnadog says:

    “Unfortunately we don’t know where Trump got his quote?”

    Maybe he meant this Muslim Feminist:

    “Islam to me is the most feminist religion: we got equal rights well before the Europeans. We don’t take our husbands last names because we ain’t their property. We were given the right to own land.”

    Unfortunately there is ample proof that women are considered sub-human in Muslim countries and must never stand – or even sit – equal to men. As Mz Wynne, a Canadian State Premier discovered when she visited a mosque the other day.(please scroll down a wee bit to see this poor lady having to sit all alone at the back away from men)


  17. Pounce says:

    The entire liberal world and its dog have jumped on the band wagon in which to try and discredit Trump, with the bbC being no different. Here are a few stories which I have knocked out about how their is something rotten in the state of Sweden.
