Midweek Open Thread


Nicky Campbell thinks it would be great if Christmas were to be more secular because then all other religions could join in and ‘celebrate’ it too.  Perfect illustration of BBC mindset…surrender your own culture to accomodate those who have absolutely no intention of compromising their own culture to fit in with British and western society.

BBC Bias, or stupidity, list it all here……..

    Having just got in to hear the news of yet another ram raid on helpless civilians-this time on Melbournes main street by the train station-you can only laugh at the extent to which the words…”Islam!, “jihad” Muslim” are studiously avoided by all main channels available on freeview.
    Which are surely what the state pays to get its “one love” message across to the rest of us.
    Amazing-not one word on these inconvenient , likely truths to come-just loads of oafs in Brussels or Roehampton spouting of ” mental health issues” and “not caving in to the-well, who`s to say, can`t OFFICIALLY call it what it is, can we?”
    Laughable-suppose there`s never a chance that he could be an “Afghan of Australian heritage/descent ” is there?
    Only wish it was funny in reality.

    “Dental student plotted terror attack in UK”

    Heck, it’s getting hard to keep up with all the festive cheer from the Religion of War, Terror, Rape and Mental Issues.

    Now we have a new category: not mental issues, but Dental Issues.

    Isn’t theology complicated these days?

      Look at those cold dead eyes…

      ‘Awan told police that he was a keen fisherman and was researching hunting with a catapult and denied preparing for an act of terrorism.’

      He was given 10 years….. will be out in 3, just enough time to radicalise a few brothers in the clink.

      Meanwhile, today, the Melbourne ‘car crash’ is totally off the front page of the Al Beeb news page.
      Quelle surprise!!

      Happy Christmas!

    Has anyone else noticed that Immediately below the word ‘England’, about halfway down the homepage of the BBC News website, are the words ‘change nation’? We all know that the weirdos who run the BBC are obsessed with refashioning the part of the UK that they most loathe, but what are they playing at here?

    Hey! How about the Melbourne police!

    An Afghan deliberately drives his car over pedestrians whilst accompanied by a man filming his daring adventure. This helpful cameraman had a bag of knives with him, you never know when a bag of knives will come in handy when taking photos.

    Within just one hour the police, state, with certainty, it isn’t a terrorist incident. How about that? Inside one hour they have interviewed the suspect, investigated his past, been through his PC, phones etc, interviewed all those he was in contact with and thoroughly searched his home.

    Also, they say he is mentally ill, so they have clearly interviewed his psychiatrist. Did they require a warrant to break the medical professions confidentiality agreement and did they then have the suspect diagnosed by other psychiatrists to check the first’s account is correct?

    How about that! All inside one hour. Get those lads over here. Every crime will be solved by next Tuesday.

    BBC News

    Facebook says the fake news flags may have made things worse.

    Facebook ditches warning flag for fake news

    What they might have said!

    Given the BBC conducts most of its ‘business’ via FB or twitter, this is quite funny.

    BBC to air more religious programming {bbc.co.uk 21dec2017}
    There will be more about non-Christian festivals like Diwali, Passover, Rosh Hashanah, Ramadan and Eid on mainstream programmes like The One Show, The Chris Evans Breakfast Show and Newsround

    There will be landmark programmes to “explore religion in all its forms”, including a major TV series about the world’s sacred sites, a Radio 4 series on morality in the 21st Century, and a Radio 2 initiative to encourage young people to discuss issues about peace

    2019 will be “A Year of Beliefs”, with programmes looking at how people make big decisions and where they get their moral values from

    There will be more “people-led stories that have warmth and depth”, such as observing vicars working in local communities

    There will be tie-ins with music and comedy, and more digital-first video and social media content

    The role of the religious affairs correspondent – currently Martin Bashir – will be upgraded to religion editor, leading BBC News’s new global religious affairs team

    BBC News will also broaden the range of interviewees and contributors to represent a wider range of opinions and practices

    From Afghanistan but not terror-related. This really is pathetic from the Beeb. And they have the nerve to feign outrage when Trump calls them fake news?

    3 down, 1 to go. Been saying for weeks that the aim of making government look weak enough for the REAL winner of the election, The Labour Party, (says Thornberry) to take its rightful place at the helm, required a series of ministerial resignations. Exit No 3, Damian Green. Only Boris to go. Now WHAT was the name of that nice BBC empl…er…lady detained in Iran again?
    We will surely be hearing a lot about her soon. Not immediately; that would be too close to No3 on the BBC hit list. But soon, yeah? Fallon, Patel, Green… then Boris. Oh what a lovely target!
    Surely the PM couldn’t survive that as well?


    • Sir_Arthur_Strebe-Grebling says:

      Iran doesn’t recognise ‘dual nationality’ yet the bBBC insists on calling the woman Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe and saying she is British. Isn’t that winding up the Iranian regime at least as much as Boris Johnson saying that she worked for a news agency – which is true, anyway?

    The daily politics today was a very childish and amateurish show.
    Today’s guardian journalist was talking over everybody.

    The ‘quiz’ was daft and Pienaar didn’t give out the answers, just agreeing with someone who gave some answer you missed because of the Guardian bird yapping on.

    • scribblingscribe says:

      Emmanuel , The “Guardian bird” who kept “yapping on” is Zoe Williams. She’s the dunce who doesn’t get Quantitative Easing, even though she writes about it just about every week. And every week the poor, sad readers of the Guardian add their comments online trying to explain to her the simple process of QE. And every week Zoe doesn’t get it.

      She once said on TV that everyone tells her that you cannot do Quantitative Easing for the common man, but she doesn’t understand why. You’d think she might read about it before filling the Guardian pages with more rubbish.

      It’s a shame the BBC wont use journalists from papers other than the Guardian, who actually know a few facts.


      • Sussexfan says:

        The delightful Zoe Williams seemed to spend every off camera moment biting her nails, as a well known figure might well have said ‘what a beauty’! On camera moments were confined to her usual lefty claptrap.


        • Doublethinker says:

          Let us not forget two of Zoe’s gems. Firstly she declared that she had no problem with the rent a crowd mob spitting at delegates to the Tory conference. Secondly she claimed, against all the evidence, that she was a member of the intellectual left. This woman is disgusting and has the self esteem of a narcissist. Only a rag like the Guardian would employee her. If I am ever lucky enough to meet her she can have some of my spittle and see how she likes up close and personal.


      • Up2snuff says:

        ss, “She once said on TV that everyone tells her that you cannot do Quantitative Easing for the common man, but she doesn’t understand why.”

        Quite right. There are different sorts of QE, and it could easily be done for the ‘common man’ as well as the less common woman What?!!! Sexism!!! on the Guardian?!!!!! By one of their journalists?!!!!!!!

        Phew! I need to go and lie down for a bit in a darkened room with a cool towel on my forehead.


  17. Fedup2 says:

    If you try to watch the tv news without having a non white face talking at you – you don’t get to watch much news these days. Which might be a good thing .


    • BRISSLES says:

      Once upon a time, (in the days before mass migration to these shores), if you were asked to describe someone from Britain, it would be simply be ‘white’, and I suspect most of the world still see us as that way. Only the media now portray the population of the UK as 50/50. 50% white, and the rest made up of British Muslims, Anglo Asians, Anglo Indian, Anglo African, and Anglo Every Other Bugger . I don’t know about everyone else on here, but in my mind’s eye an English/Scots/Welsh/Irish man-woman is never a person of colour, they’re always white. Perhaps its an ‘age’ thing


    • Up2snuff says:

      Fedup, technically, Nikki Haley is a non-white face, although you wouldn’t know from many photos, but it is a very pleasant one to look at. (See pic above – OK, not a newsreader but getting screen/air-time at present.) She speaks well and appears to be another courageous woman in this so-called ‘male dominated world’. I hope she can sort out the UN. It needs sorting out.


  18. Fedup2 says:

    Tomorrow – the Friday before Christmas – is the best bad news day of the year as they depend on decent people to be busy celebrating Christmas . A good day to “ bury bad news “ as a former Labour Party SPAD once famously was stupid enough to put in an e mail.


  19. vlad says:

    How the beeb lie: Melbourne attack ‘not terror related’. That’s all it says on their Home page. The casual reader will think, case closed, not terrorism.
    Even if you dig a bit, the headline changes to: “Melbourne crash: Driver arrested after hitting pedestrians.”
    Still sounds pretty anodyne, a car crash.

    Now here’s what Jihadwatch says:
    A mentally ill drug addict. With a criminal history. Of course. How could this possibly be terrorism? Notice, however, buried deep in this report, a most interesting detail: “Second man arrested at the scene was filing [sic] the incident and had a bag containing knives.” He wasn’t filing, he was filming. What kind of mentally ill drug addict decides to drive a car into pedestrians and gets a buddy to fill a bag with knives and come down and film the act? Clearly the filming was for jihad video; we have seen other jihad terrorists, such as Mohamed Merah, who massacred people at a Jewish school in France a few years ago, film their acts so that jihadis can enjoy the bloodshed and recruit others to the cause. If Australian authorities think this wasn’t terrorism, but just more of the global outbreak of mental illness, they’re whistling in the dark.



    • G.W.F. says:

      They can’t lose. The car is driven into pedestrians. The event is filmed and enjoyed by jihadists. Britain First shares it, Trump tweets it and Treezer attacks Trump in Parliament for being Islamophobic.


  20. scribblingscribe says:

    So much for the BBC and Laura Kuenssberg to celebrate!

    FTSE has reached a record high, topping 7,600 for first time. (Obviously, despite Brexit). That’s 500 points higher than this time last year.

    The deficit was the lowest in November for 10 years! In fact the lowest since 2007, before the great crash.

    No doubt, the BBC will be headlining all this great news for the UK economy. I bet Eddie Mair will devote his entire program to the great success story. Newsnight, I am sure, will devote its entire 50 minutes to this startling good news.


  21. Sluff says:

    Failed rape trials continued.
    One Samuel Armstrong, a Conservative Party aide, has been found not guilty at Southwark Crown Court on 4 counts of rape and other offences.
    In part, due to a disclosure by the prosecution to the defence just 8 days before the trial.
    It is SO obvious these trials are an appalling act of pro-feminist political correctness.
    I wonder whose side the BBC are on?


  22. John Ogilvie says:

    In an article ‘How to perfect your Brexit chat this Christmas’ the BBC, with total impartiality, reminds readers that “The EU has stuck religiously to the guidelines approved by leaders in April.”
    Thanks Tom Moseley for that bit of impartial information.


  23. NISA says:

    Damian Green: Vendetta or architect of his own downfall?
    The BBC poses this question as a headline but gives the shortest possible coverage of plod’s actions before piling the ordure onto Green. Quick makes a brief reappearance way down the page but the BBC can’t resist returning to more Green bashing.
    I do not like Green but this BBC report is very light on possible wrong doing by the Met.


    • Fedup2 says:

      More important that there’s on less remainer in the cabinet imho might give JRM a chance of a job in January – trouble is all it will do is shut him up to take collective responsibility .


    • StewGreen says:

      Beeboid Peston on “sources say”
      “Damian Green will keep his job”,
      so said ITV’s political editor Robert Peston ten days ago, citing “three well-placed sources”


    • Up2snuff says:

      NISA, something very funny about this.

      Yesterday, the BBC were reporting Kate Maltby as a ‘political activist’ with no mention of a political Party. Then in the next news item she was a ‘journalist’. The next news item, it appeared to me to revert to the previous description. The next, back again to ‘journalist’. This morning, it is Kate Maltby, Conservative Party activist and journalist. Has she had an involvement with any other political Party? What sort of ‘activist’ was she? What had she been doing for the Conservatives? No questions asked by the BBC.

      Secondly, M/s Maltby was supposedly bothered by Green’s hand brushing or touching her knee but – according to the BBC, I think – she continued to meet him twice a year, every year since for drinks.
      That is a bit strange. Something does not ‘add up’ there. No questions asked by the BBC.

      Thirdly, the initial raid and interrogation of Green’s HoC computer took place in 2008. His lawyers were informed about the (‘legal’) porn images in 2009. Green was informed by his lawyers AND the police in 2013. Why the delay. Why the lack of duty of care by the law firm? No questions asked by the BBC.

      Fourthy, it is usual – I am led to understand – prior to Ministerial appointments, for the Chief Whip and the senior Civil Servant in No.10 Downing Street to each make enquiries into the proposed appointee and his or her standing and character and to actually interview them. The usual question to be posed is “Is there anything in your past that could jeopardise your position, and more importantly that of the Prime Minister, the Cabinet and Government, that would be embarrassing or a matter over which you could be blackmailed or could be forced to resign?” The CW and CS would both have known about the police raid, arrest and examination of the HoC computer. They may well have known about the porn images found there. Think: House of Cards. (English version). No questions asked by the BBC.

      Fifthly, I cannot believe MI5 have not been all over this like an ill-fitting overcoat. Bear in mind that the HoC has been cyber attacked recently. No questions asked by the BBC.

      Sixthly, it appears the police officers who have gone public about the material on the HoC computer approached the BBC. Or was it the other way round? It appears Kate Maltby, who has now suddenly gone public, approached the BBC in an attempt to save her career. Or was it the other way round? Obviously no questions asked there by the BBC. The answers may be embarrassing for the BBC but they are also significant to the due legal process, so on those we will have to wait. Wonder if we will ever know?

      Finally, we need to know what Nick Timothy’s and Fiona Hill’s involvement was in all of this. If they were running No.10 as much and as closely as has been stated, they would have known all about Green in advance of his appointment. That is all a bit fishy, too.

      The BBC are obviously desiring to keep this Green Affair churning on and on because, so far, it has appeared to have left Theresa May as PM, together with the ongoing Brexit process, completely undamaged. It was a dead story two days ago.

      I wonder why there is so much ongoing interest at the BBC?


      • JamesArthur says:

        Up2 – Yes Maltby seemed to be one of the main stories on R4 and breakfasts complete with an interview with Ms Maltby who appears to be a first class self publicist – who deems herself to be an activist, a feminist,critic, columnist and scholar….she seems to be one of those people who is great at faking it until she makes it – no publicity is bad publicity….But the BBC love her – she knows how to play her cards..

        R4 this morning – presenter discussing blue passports ‘ the change in colour, what’s that all about’ apart from unnecessary use of the vernacular it showed a complete ignorance of the relevance of going back to our traditional passport colour – but what do I expect from R4 these days?


  24. John Ogilvie says:

    In an article, ‘Nine charts which tell you all you need to know about North Korea’ the BBC makes no mention that North Korea has a Communist dictatorship.


  25. Jeff says:

    It’s quite clear that the Aussie police are as impotently politically correct as our own. Still no confirmation that this attempt at mass murder is yet another attack by our old friends from the Islamist death cult.
    I mean what more do they need? They’ve got a bearded Muzzie driving a huge car mowing down innocent pedestrians. And then there’s his mate filming it, as you do, who’s carrying a bagful of knives and machetes! What the 4 X for? In case they ran out of cutlery? And all you hear is the laughable, police suspect foul play…

    And as for the appalling BBC…Dear God. They’re getting worse. I’ve heard every flimsy dissembling excuse under the sun. “He’s known to police.” “He has a history of drug abuse,” Oh, and let’s not forget, “He suffers from psychological problems.” The only one they’ve not tried to trot out is “He’s from Norway.” Give ’em time.

    If they could get away with it they’d love to implicate Donald Trump or the mythical far right.

No doubt her Saudi masters have told her how they want her to behave or she won’t be able to claim the massive amounts of bribe money coming her way post term.

        Labour has an interesting record of promise breaking on most issues, left and right.
        In power Corbyn could dump all of his Pallie promises and even side with Trump, upsetting his band of Trots.
        I don’t fear Labour, but feel confident that they will split once in powser.


  28. vlad says:

    Our mad Melbourne muslim seems to have conveniently slipped off the beebistan’s Home page – that was quick.

    There’s still half a line about it on the World page, reassuringly telling us the attack ‘not terrorist related’.
    Phew, that’s alright then.

    But ABC has a bit more: “He spoke of dreams and voices [a bit like Mad Mo then], but also attributed some of his activities as well due to the mistreatment of Muslims.” So there’s at least a bit of a politico-religious angle to it.

    Now: someone who attempts to kill innocent people for politico-religious reasons – isn’t that a terrorist?



  29. vlad says:

    I wonder just what it would take for the police/media to classify a car ramming as ‘terrorist’?
    A licence plate like this?
    Or would the headline be:
    “Car with unusual licence plate ploughs into crowd. Police are baffled as to possible motive but reject terror link.”



    • deegee says:

      I suspect the BBC would not publish the photograph. That might be as with the Danish anti-Islam cartoons too provocative. They might reference it in the text about three-quarters down protected by a police spokesman, not necessarily named, who will inform us that the Police are considering its significance.

      The following paragraph would have a quote from a imam informing us that jihad literally means striving or struggling, especially with a praiseworthy aim. It can have many shades of meaning in an Islamic context, such as struggle against one’s evil inclinations, an exertion to convert unbelievers, or efforts toward the moral betterment of society.

      Thus the BBC would lead us in the direction of the plate is harmless without actually taking a position.

      Then the BBC would move on with filler material about Trump, Jerusalem and Arab anger. it’s the BBC way.


  30. Beltane says:

    Jolly lucky the BBC were able to rustle up their political correspondent Ms Koonsssssburger so quickly for the 10 o’clock news, and how selfless of Ms Makeminea-Maltby to leave the Christmas festivities and expose her all in that DIY studio.
    But there you have it, the BBC will always put the country first, declining involvement with petty, childish or spiteful vendettas deciding to stay with their enviable reputation for high principles. That’s why they are so loved and respected.


  31. fakenewswatcher says:

    Radio4 News at ten invites a Trump supporter to give his views on the US embassy/Jerusalem issue, then cuts him off in mid-sentence because there are ‘so many issues to cover’, bringing us the alleged sound of a Yemeni baby crying. The Turkish commentary on the issue was allowed to ramble on endlessly on how wonderful Erdogan was, as well as Turkish foreign policy in detail. (The Turkish murder of 1.5 million Armenians, still not admitted to, was not mentioned of course).
    Why bring on a guest and then shut him up on some cheap pretext? I very much wanted to hear the point being made. There was PLENTY of time. Typical BBC R4 news. Biased, deceitful, impolite. No style. usual situation.


  32. G.W.F. says:

    Fatal stabbing in a store in Skipton.
    Man arrested. No details,
    Worth following in case it turns out to be terror with a media cover up.
    Of interest is that it was in a public place and follows a pattern of attacks on the public from known sources.



    • Broadcasting-on-Behalf-of-the-Caliphate says:

      Hi GWF, as there is only one casualty I doubt it is an Islam inspired attack.

      Personally I don’t like the label terror attack – I think it is non-specific and easy to manipulate. Most of them are Islamic attacks – with the people carrying them out using Islamic ideology to justify their actions. When you attribute something to an abstract noun such as terror, then you are taking a step away from the truth – it lacks specificity and human agency.


      • G.W.F. says:

        Fair point, accepted. Looking to the future I am trying to think of other words than Islamic as frequent use of that word will soon be monitored and used against us.

  34. Helena Hand-Basket says:

    Taffman asked How Aussies are reacting to the Melbourne attack. Are we going as soft here as other countries? (I live in Sydney). Well, the Aussie establiishment are largely multiculturalist. Even the commercial media have turned pretty lefty and politically correct in the last couple of years, so many people would be afraid to speak out even if they are worried about terrorists and about our substantial (mainly Middle Eastern) Muslim population.

    But at least the anti-multiculturalists have political representation here, as Pauline Hanson’s One Nation part has four Senators, all implacably opposed to Islam. Pauline turned up at the Senate house in a burkka a couple of months ago, to demonstrate the security issues surrounding the garment. The other parties were NOT amused by what they called here ‘stunt’.

    The UK media may not have reminded you that it is only about a year since six people were killed in central Melbourne when a driver ploughed into pedestrians. It seems he probably is mentally ill, but claimed at a court appearance to have been Islam-motivated. But the case is still ongoing, so nothing is definite.

    The media here are pushing the angles of mental illness and protest against the mistreatment of Muslims in the latest case, so I should think ot will be quietly sidelined like the last one. It will soon be replaced by footage of: koalas afflicted by climate change; disadvantaged aborigines; Australia’s first same-sex marriages; poor refugee boat people confined to Manus Island; a handful of ‘far right’ demonstrators; Pauline Hanson being Islamophobic.

      Thanks for the amusing but sad update on once-proud Oz. Sounds like you’re going the way of the rest of the once-civilised world.

      All power to Pauline’s elbow.

    Why are they reporting on passports changing colour? This is not fake news but it is something nobody cares about, like so much of what the cowardly MSM covers.

    So can HALAL slaughter be more secular so more people can join in?

    ‘Nicky Campbell thinks it would be great if Christmas were to be more secular because then all other religions could join in..’

    Halal equality for all!

    The BBC now says the Melbourne attacker was motivated by perceived mistreatment of Muslims. So it was terrorism after all. Wow – what a twist on the tale! Who could possibly have seen that one coming?

    Such a trusted news source. We really need to watch our for those Russians under the bed trying to deceive us – nothing at all to worry about closer to home.


    • Dystopian says:

      I’m surprised they used the word perceived.

      Again playing the persecuted victim card to justify their jihad.

    BBC headline – “Melbourne attack an isolated incident, says PM Turnbull”. Ah that’s a relief! Suppose it’s just like all the other attacks.

    Ask a silly question
    It’s a given that the BBC celebrates, indeed lauds the public sector. NHS nurses are of course our latterday Angels. BBC Breakfast’s roving reporter this morning takes us to the kitchens of Stockport Hospital to pull a cracker and to talk about Christmas dinner with those dinner ladies engaged in what is obviously more than just a job…? It’s not 25th December just yet and Stockport is just down the road from Salford, so it’s not as though our BBC team are having to put themselves out too much. I digress. Our reporter asks a member of the kitchen staff about numbers of dinners to be prepared on the big day…. well, comes the answer, there’s no planned operations or procedures and naturally all the hospital admin staff will be away – “and that’s quite a big number”
    Oh dear, they say a good cross-examinating lawyer never asks a question to which he doesn’t already know the answer.


    • Fedup2 says:

      As I see
      And there are plenty of “ nurses’ with qualifications from bong bongo land or elvis Presley university Warsaw merrily killing patients every day – hence the term ‘angels’.

    Lord Soames maybe related to Winston Churchill but knew nothing on his view towards an EU. Michael Heseltine openly states that Churchill would be a Remainer often without dispute from the presenter.

    Remember, Heseltine knew and supported the aim of the EU becoming a Federal United States of Europe wth Britain being a part of it. He kept this quiet for many years. Heseltine, a discredited,immoral lowlife of a politician, yet still promoted by the BBC.

    The BBC have given their one sided views on what Churchill thought on the subject wide coverage using the aforementioned politicians as expert examplars.

    I would like to see them justify their views against the actual words of Sir Winston Churchill on the question of our relationship with Europe

    A speech to the House of Commons on 11 May 1953.

    ‘We are with Europe but not of it; we are linked but not compromised. We are associated but not absorbed. If Britain must choose between Europe and the open sea, she must always choose the open sea.’

    Another example is the “we are with” I believe quoted by Sir Winston on the same day.

    ‘Where do we stand? We are not members of the European Defence Community, nor do we intend to be merged in a Federal European system. We feel we have a special relation to both. This can be expressed by prepositions, by the preposition “with” but not “of” — we are with them, but not of them.’

    It is a shame that the BBC are unable to correct both scoundrels Heseltine and Lord Soames on this subject.

    Islam is not a religion of peace… says Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

    And she should know: she lives under a shitload of fatwas and death threats for daring to advocate women’s rights and for leaving the Religion-That-Kills-People-Who-Leave-It (how peaceful is that for a start, right there?)
    Oh and by the way: in the topsy-turvy world of libtards, she is reviled and shunned by the feminist sistas, the Lefty/ il-Liberal media, and of course by our very own Biased Brainwashing Corporation. Which is strange as she’s intelligent, well-spoken, well-informed, black, feminist (real feminism), and telegenic. All of which should make her the go-to commentator on all matters muslimic. Ah, but hang on: she speaks the truth – can’t have that. Ban her! Silence her! Boo!

    Its Christmas and its good to see that at least one British retailer has a wicked sense of humour, which sticks 2 fingers up to the Snowflakes of this world:


    As you can gather the bBC wasn’t impressed:
    Divided opinion
    The campaign has divided opinion on Twitter, with some praising it as “brilliant”, others damning it as “outdated misogyny”.A spokesperson for the Advertising Standards Authority confirmed they had had eight complaints about the advertising campaign, all on Thursday, claiming that it was offensive and unsuitable to be seen by children. He said: “Because the complaints have only just come in we will assess them and then decide whether there is a problem, and whether the advertisements need to be investigated.”

    “A very merry Muslim Christmas: the slogan for ‘good’ Muslims
    Shaista Aziz”
    In TWLLV, 2017-12-21.
    “But the humanising Muslims industry is just mainstreaming Islamophobia”
    “It draws attention to the sense of duty that many British Muslims have for their country”
    Followed by more nonsense which can be ignored.
    “Shaista Aziz is a standup comedian and former aid worker”
    No comments allowed in the Guardian, a Guardian which has ever more non-white, non-European, lefties and other enemies telling us what to do, what to believe, and how to think.
    “A Muslim Christmas”. In one, they want to take over, and TWMTB agrees.
    “humanising” and “Muslim” used in the same geological epoch!
    “their country” That is exactly corect, they believe they own it, or will own it. Allah decreed it so.
    “the sense of duty Muslims have”, is solely to the nastiest ideology ever developed. As every event, since the paedophile got on his horse, has shown.
    “humanising Muslims industry”. Exactly it’s an industry, like advertising, just more anti Western propaganda.
    No such thing as Islamophobia, It’s all just lying MuzzieBollox. And we are not buying it.
    If there was an apology for Islam in the article I missed it, not that I would accept it.

      Brilliant …. slight amendment … needs an assistant ….

      Nadiya “the Doctor” Who can Tardis into Mecca with her Transgender-Apostate-Muslim-Non-Binary-Coloured-Gay sidekick and their pet pig Percy. Then the Tardis malfunctions due to a time distortion generated from a strange black rock that’s shaped like a ladies body part.

      They must now escape, knowing that it’s the Haji with 14 million visitors and non-Muslims aren’t allowed in Mecca.

      What will Nadia do? Will the sidekick wear the full face veil or learn the Shahadah in time to conform or will she say who she is, and stand her ground as a Transgender-Apostate-Muslim-Non-Binary-Coloured-Gay?

      What about Percy the pig who was just reading the requirements for Halal?

    Pity the poor Welsh cops who are leading the fight against the far right.

    ‘Welsh counter terror police said they devoted as much time to far-right extremism in Wales as Islamist extremism’.

    I read this as evidence that the police are complicit in the Islamisation of this country and see the real enemy as those who object to it
