Midweek Open Thread 24 July 2019

The Biased Far Left BBC knows full well that the new British Prime Minister is no great fan of it . This will lead to a concerted effort to destroy him before he either achieves a successful Brexit and/or turns his attention to reforming a State Broadcaster which has lost its way and is no longer ‘British’.

Obviously making the BBC British and unbiased again can’t be done with the current corrupt Parliament in place . Boris has a long list of issues to repair the damage done by Mrs May to our country . But with help he must start to drain the corrupt swamp including the Biased BBC. Good luck Bo.

    Today is the day that I for one feel a bit more positive about Brexit. May and her cabal made up lies about leaving and its so plain to see now.Judge an MP by his/her actions when it goes against their wishes.Look at how many are throwing their bottles out of the pram,even before boris became PM. Speaks volumes of the calibre of The MP’s and May.

      Our leaders are going to have to re-learn how to govern our country. And we are going to have to re-learn how to vote for people who love our country and are capable of good governance.


      • NCBBC says:

        JIC: Our leaders are going to have to re-learn how to govern our country.

        Indeed. The BBC informs us that the Home Office under Sajid is considering all terrorism.

        UK terror threat level: Risk from right-wing extremists to inform system

        Really. Right wing terrorism is what is keeping the secret services awake all night? It must have been all those bombs, bullets, beheadings etc in the last decade, perpetrated by either Right wingers or a name you aren’t allowed to mention.

        The anti-semitism in the Labour party must also be due to Right wingers.

        Something is really wrong with our country when one cannot mention the severest threat to its foundation. To govern a country properly, one must first recognise truth and say it.


  4. Fedup2 says:

    Strange times – when a newly appointed Conservative PM will be relying on the support of true Democratic Labour MPs representing Brexit constituencies – rather than the traitors sitting on the benches behind him – being given regular and unrestricted access to the BBC airways spouting Project Fear every damn day .

        Re BBC: He needs to reform the BBC first while he still has the goodwill of the nation.

        If he does so, the BBC will take such fright that they wont report anything negative of Boris anymore.

        He will have a compliant BBC. Its the only way to deal with fascist left.

        Of course, he must straighten out the BBC with the “best possible taste”.

    OK Boris, listen to me.
    Get prepared for the job you need to do.
    One item of equipment is required, a hammer.
    Take down most of the photographs of your most recent predecessors, and smash them.
    Take the photographs of Winston and Saint Margaret wherever you go.
    You will then be in the right frame of mind to smash the EU.
    Together with Saint Donald, we Western people, responsible for most of the creativity and progress made since 1300AD, need you to rescue us from the forces of evil massed against us.

    “the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilisation. Upon it depends our own British life, and the long continuity of our institutions
    The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us.
    Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves, that if the UK lasts for a thousand years, men will still say, “This was their finest hour.”

      All the negotiations with the EU, from now on, should be conducted here in England. I’m sick to death of our lot scuttling off to Brussels,cap in hand begging for scraps from their table.

    • Dystopian says:

      I wouldn’t hold your breath LCS. I’m not sure of the source, but according to Talk Radio news summary this morning, Boris is going to appoint “a record number of ethnic minorities and wimmin to his cabinet”. So expect more of the same virtue signalling appeasing BS that May brought.


      • NCBBC says:

        Boris is going to appoint “a record number of ethnic minorities and wimmin to his cabinet”

        Hopefully just one to represent both . Priti Patel comes to mind.


        • Banania says:

          Suella Braverman, don’t forget her.


          • NCBBC says:

            Banania – Thanks for the heads up.

            In March 2019, Braverman was criticised for stating that “As Conservatives, we are engaged in a battle against cultural Marxism”. Critics claimed that she was referring to an antisemitic conspiracy theory often employed by Neo-Nazis and alt-right activists as a means of attacking Jewish people involved in politics. She was criticised by the Board of Deputies of British Jews as well as multiple anti-racism charities.

            Cultural Marxism is destroying the West, bringing in all manners of evil into the West- limiting freedom of speech, transgenderism, radical feminism, deviant sexual behaviour, confused political pronouns and destruction of language, as well as Islam.

            Its astonishing that the Board of Deputies of British Jews attacked her. For what ? Racism?

            In the USA, establishment Jews attack Pres Trump as racist. I cant think of any president in the last 70 years who has been as pro-Israel as Pres Trump. Jews are supposed to have the highest average IQs in the West. Whatsup?

            I therefore change my support from Priti Patel to Suella B. She is cultural Christian at the least, therefore understands the West at a deeper emotional level then Priti P. Too, she has no where to go but the West, unlike Ms Patel, who can run off to India if Islam takes over the UK.


    • NCBBC says:

      If the engineering technical achievements of just Scotland are removed from the world body, the BBC will be left using the didgeridoo for its broadcasts.

      And they were all achievements of high order by Christian men. Their Christian faith gave them confidence that God was not a perverse God who changed natural law as it suited him, as pagan gods did.


  6. Scroblene says:

    It’s odd really, but the ‘sibliminals’ in the BBC are at it already.

    If you care to listen or see the hacks and commentators, they all pile on the ‘how’, ‘where’, ‘why’ statements to confuse and inflate all options in government, and try to make Mr Johnson appear unready to face any of these questions!

    So, we now have the BBC ‘journos’, making all these comments like three-year-olds explaining Buzz Lightyear to a bored grandparent. They’re of course, the grand un-elected, (but paid for by tax) hard-nosed pillars of society, the very people with ‘vast internal experience of government’, ‘the skills of political argument’, ‘enormous gravitas and experience of international trade, budgets and conviction’…

    Naaah, they’re all out to poke our new prime minister at every turn, they’ll be making ‘cases’, for their ‘stories’ in a few months time, when they’ll get their autocue managers to look back at every speech, etc., and then, pop up in front of the cameras, and say …

    …’We told you so’!

    Awaking early today, the R5 Brexit podcast was full of such deep, reasoned argument, that it was clear that with all the journos’ ‘knowledge’, they were indeed such a superior race, that it would be utterly impossible for Mr Johnson ever to even believe that he had a cat in hell’s chance of getting anywhere. The ‘podcast’ was the usual obfuscation of ‘facts’, the squeals and ‘you knows’ which epitomise the sort of cheap-sweets dross the (tax)paying public will have to endure for several months, maybe until they’re eventually stopped….

    Oh, and I told you so…;0)


    • JamesArthur says:

      They can’t lose can they – throw enough negatives and some may be right but even if they fail to come true they will find something else or ignore it – it is just like project fear..fan the flames but ignore higher growth lower inflation higher employment etc than in EU. BBC are despicable in their clear hatred of Boris and Brexit. I think Boris knows exactly what he is getting into and I doubt he wants to be known as the shortest lived PM….fingers crossed for Brexit

      “Seems the bbc has realised their timeframe for meddling has shortened considerably. ”

      Methinks someone at the cancerous BBC are eager to feel Prince Charles’ sword on their left shoulders.


    • Scroblene says:

      Close-up pics of the hags at the BBC shouldn’t be allowed at this time of the morning!

      I know the makeup bods try, but sometimes they fail miserably, and also with the blokes as well…


    • NameNotNumber says:

      Working in publishing in the 1970s, I was supplied with a very similar image to be used for a book cover. For all I can remember, it could have been the very same. Anyway, point is, what are the BBC trying to tell us with that photo … that when mud dries it goes all crinkly?


    • NCBBC says:

      By designating the fraud of Climate Change as a science, the BBC, government etal, have debased science itself. The Humanities were corrupted already, but now science also follows suit.

      The only discipline left is engineering that hasn’t been corrupted.


  8. Foscari says:

    The big problem for the BBC is that Boris Johnson doesn’t tick
    ANY of their boxes. So far as the BBC is concerned Theresa May
    was at least a woman.
    I believe that BIG BROTHER at the BBC will give free rein for
    his ,or her, or it’s news and political editors, presenters and reporters
    to attack him . We have already seen the plethora of the wimmin
    liberal bigots at the BBC start this with their continual facetious
    innuendos .
    I don’t know if Boris Johnson will succeed. But I know that BIG
    BROTHER will do everything to inform” It’s ” underlings that the
    BBC’S policy is to see that he doesn’t.


  9. AnneG says:

    I just thought I would say how much I enjoyed Geoff Norcott’s “How the Middle class ruined Britain”
    The middle class mum explaining being a fake christian to get her child into the good school, all in the style of a drug dealer down an alley, was so BBC,
    It wavered over dating agencies for the middle class ex public school pupils, but returned to form when he did a short stand up in front of three po-faced student union types was brilliant.
    I was laughing as he told about his one armed dad moaning about the Paralympics, “he’s not disabled” “He’s not either”
    He knew that he would not be able to get University gigs very soon.
    I think it’s worth a look.

  11. Stevie m says:

    All sky did yesterday was to wheel out anti Boris talking heads. The obnoxious Adam Boulton was on air for six bloody hours, which in my opinion is six hours too much. He had Jo Swinson on twice. Switched on this morning and we have more of the same. We badly need a fox news equivalent in this country.


    • Doublethinker says:

      Agree Stevie but to broadcast in this country you need a license from the government. Fox had one but gave it up for reasons unknown but liberal establishment pressure on other parts of their business empire is likely to have been the cause. No right of centre anti liberal establishment news provider will get a license . This leaves the internet as a source of news but the establishment is slowly gaining control of it and shutting down outlets it doesn’t like.
      The tentacles of the establishment are everywhere , media, education, civil service, judiciary, police, numerous quangos, councils etc etc , which is why beating them and throwing off their shackles will take years . They use their power ruthlessly, as we have seen with TR , victory of the people over their liberal masters is far from certain.


  12. digg says:

    Ok so the BBC trend is that we have been lumbered with a PM that only point zilch percent of the population voted for as if to say his election was somehow false and dodgy.

    Interviewing young “entrepreneurs” on the morning news along the lines of I don’t feel represented by this prime minister and I’m not a member of the Tory party etc. etc. etc.

    So when did the UK population get ever to vote for the PM? I don’t remember being offered a vote for May, Cameron, Blair, Churchill, Cromwell or any PM in living memory etc. etc. And if Labour get into power I bet we don’t get a vote to choose Corbyn to be PM either

    What a pile of poo they are, desperately grabbing at any straw they can to smear. We really do need to get rid of this odious bunch of traitors.


    • Not Gwent says:

      “So when did the UK population get ever to vote for the PM?”

      Our electoral system is so sophisticated that with one ‘x’ we

      Choose the executive
      Choose our local representative
      Choose the PM

      Of course FPTP means that overall opinion isn’t reflected.


  13. chancygardner says:

    I’m not sure if this has been mentioned before but there appears to have been a subtle change in the way the Have Your Say comments are collated on the bbbc.

    In previous years, the highest rated comments were shown as a ratio between the up ticks v the down ticks and vice versa. Now it is shown as a total number cast for either to give ranking. The upshot of this is there is no easy way to escape the action of bots or momentum or whatever gang culture is affecting the ‘grading’. For example, a negative comment about Johnson’s new leadership could be at the top of the highest rated with 1000 up ticks to 600 down ticks. Conversely, the same comment appears as the first visible shown in the ‘ lowest rated’ simply because of the number of down ticks.
    In one fell swoop, those of us who can’t be bothered with the general drivel posted and who simply wish to see what the general consensus might be, get a false picture and a double serving of the same viewpoint, whether we choose ‘highest’ or ‘lowest’. Since I trust the bbbc about as much as a puppy next to a pile of poo, I’d say this was deliberately manipulated to fall into the hands of those who wish to provide a false picture of readership opinion.


    • Not Gwent says:

      I never value popularity as measured in polls of the self selecting. The bots comment is also a valid reason to distrust these measures of nothingness.

    Unlike the beeb to quote TWITTER!


  16. Doublethinker says:

    I think that Boris can win through but only by being tough on Brexit and maintaining an electoral pact with TBP . If he does this he can
    a) either succeed in getting substantial concessions from the EU and claiming, hopefully correctly and with Nigel’s approval, that we have left properly. A snap election after a good leave will result ina Tory majority with TBP and DUP support.
    b) or if the EU remains implacable and refuses any concessions or changes, force the Remainers to thwart No Deal and fight the elections on Brexit alone. The shortest possible campaign of three weeks is all that is needed as the issue is well known. Again with TBP pact victory is highly likely.

    The only way Boris can end up losing an election is if he tries to keep Remainers on side and sells out to them by presenting a repackaged May deal.TBP will fight the Tories, splitting the Leave vote, and there will be an overwhelming Remain victory with the Tories being cast into oblivion and Brexit lost. I do not think that TBP can possibly win enough seats to form a government in its own right but it can be decisive in forcing the Tories to deliver a Brexit worthy of the name. Beyond that it may be able to force through some long needed reforms to our political system.

    Boris needs to stick to the Brexit guns if he is to be PM for more than a few months and deliver Brexit.

    State Broadcaster Breakfast is unwatchable with EU flags and shouty man in the background.

      On Sky its even worse. Clearly that shouty man and his Breeeeeeeeexit is unemployed, as he seems to know instinctively when the channels are going to broadcast outside Westminster. All the technology of today, and the sound department cant drown (and I wish literally) out background noise.


  18. dazzer says:

    Boris is PM! Being called UK Trump. I’m so happy. Never before have I had such joy from politics – it’s like winning the World Cup when you were 5-0 behind and your home supporters are cheering the foreign team.

    When I joined here a year or so ago, the country was an absolute mess and eating itself while China and Japan watched in horror.

    There is talk of a pact with Nigel. Here’s a nice dream to put out there: Nigel as a cabinet minister for immigration!

    Whilst we haven’t stormed Berlin yet, we have Dunkirk-ed ourselves and regrouped our troops and installed Winston’s heir. Boris’s first speech as PM was pretty uplifting and had echoes of “on the beaches…”.

    For me, it;s been the first 2 or 3 days I have talked about the ridiculous open borders policy we have without fear of getting the sack as I end the conversation with “Boris Johnson”. Today, I have a little England flag stuck to my office door!


    • JamesArthur says:

      It does seem good Dazzer but I thought May was a winner when she started wit her no deal and Brexit is Brexit…Hopefully Boris will surprise his doubters and dig in with the Churchill spirit. He needs to keep TBP on side though

  20. tarien says:

    Perhaps worth a mention concerning the new leadership of the Liberal Democratic party-This new leader confirmed in the most traiterous way that she would do all she could to STOP Brexit, idiot woman, further she then went on to say after Boris Johnson was elected leader of the Conservative party/ Prime Minister that, he was unworthy of holding the postion of PM-what a traitor-she won’t last long hopefully and NO I am not a member of the LibDems the fiasco of the Coalition with Cameron and Clegg must have turned many Lib Dems away from the party. However we must not underestimate the scale of the crisis the Conservative party faces which is unprecedented in recent decades. We could say that we are about to embark on a new chapter in our nation’s history. To succeed, we will need an economic policy that is as fresh and bold as that of the Thatcher enterprise revolution forty years ago. It has to be said the central insight of Thatcher’s generation was that private enterprise was the engine of our mutual prosperity. In seven years, that administration rescued Britain from being the sick man of Europe and made us the enterprise capital of the world. Once again we
    face such a crisis moment. But the economic challenge this time is different. With a huge post-crash debt legacy, low growth and an economy dependant on cheap labour, we need a new economic growth cycle to raise living standards for all. WE need bold ideas that inspire-I believe Boris has the vision and the Charisma to make it happen. Let us all hope that the traiterous efforts of the BBC et al to undermine our new Prime Ministers advance will be shattered into many pieces with hundreds of BBc resignations. Well we can but hope!


    • Lefty Wright says:

      I’m wondering, with the recent spate of resignations if the swamp has sprung a leak. If it has it’s unfortunate that the BBC will reside among that gungy stuff that always forms at the top of a stagnant pond, so will probably be the last dregs down the plughole.


      • Fedup2 says:

        You might have noted that Rory the druggie Stewart has resigned – but the BBC MSM has said nothing about the promise he made when Prisons Minister – to resign in August 2019 if prison violence hadn’t reduced .

        • vesnadog says:


          “Stewart has resigned ”

  21. Cassandra says:

    Not sure if this has already been commented on but on of the BBC’s
    beloved race peddlars, Yasmin Alibhai Brown wrote an article not so long ago in The Guardian saying that she would leave the country if Boris Johnson was ever elected PM.
    On Sky News she denied that she had ever said this until she was presented with the evidence:



    But yesterday in a Twitter post to Julia Hartley-Brewer she admitted that she had written the article. Did she apologise for lying…


    I think this reply to her brazen response sums it up for me;

    “Never had you down for anything other than a despicable hypocrite. Thanks for proving me correct.”


    • john in cheshire says:

      That’s her alibi and she’s sticking to it. Mrs Brown.


      • BRISSLES says:

        She was also going to do all sorts of things if Trump every became President. She’s a prime candidate for his “go back from where you came, fix your own country, (Uganda), then come back and tell us how to do it”;

        Whenever I’ve watched her she has never said anything positive about the country that took her in, so, if the cap fits……..

      You’re welcome.


    • G says:

      Maybe she will, maybe she won’t but the POTUS expression is very accurate: ‘If you don’t like it, go back from where you came from’. That was Uganda. I’d welcome her departure.


      • Ian Rushlow says:

        But don’t forget the bit that the BBC and other controlled media missed out: “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how.
        Mind you, might take a very long time to sort out some of those countries.

    In case it hasn’t been said, Ezra Levant visited Tommy Robinson yesterday. He’s in good physical and mental health but has been in solitary confinement and hasn’t had contact with any of the other prisoners. So, the report that he was assaulted is a lie; but it’s the rats in the MSM reporting it, so it’s no surprise.
    Amazingly, he’s able to converse with Julian Assange by shouting to each other.

    Here’s a short 3 min report from Ezra:

    Is it just me, or are the initial MSM reports/speculations about Boris’ senior cabinet posts extremely discouraging, to say the least?


    • JamesArthur says:

      What I don’t understand is that they are supposed to report news not speculate or make it up or is that an old definition of News at the BBC
      They are probably annoyed he isn’t talking to them


      • fakenewswatcher says:

        James – They do like speculation: for a short period of time it means they can suggest they have ‘inside information’, in the race to sell papers.
        haven’t tuned in to the toxic bbc at all today, so can’t comment on them, but it will be the same game…

    Yesterday while awaiting a pint to be poured I saw the pub’s television and ” talking heads ” spouting forth in Westminster.
    In the background were loads of EU flags .
    Only on the BBC .
    Actually we should feel sorry for remainers . We can go into any discount shop and get loads of English/ Welsh / Scottish flags and other paraphernalia but never any EU flags . Who but a multinational or EUro zealot ever flies the ring of stars ?
    Give it a rest , BBC .


    • Lucy Pevensey says:

      I had my fortnight holiday in the beautiful West Highlands & Islands in June. I endeavoured to forget all about politics for a bit. It went well apart from having to see the occasional Scottish saltire poxed with the yellow EU stars.

    • Cane Corso says:

      When were yellow stars so prominent in European culture?


      • vesnadog says:



        While I’m here. Did anyone else notice the guy outside parliament with the unusual flag he had?. Why do I point his flag out and not the others?

        Simple, this guy had clearly “printed directly over the Union Flag except for about 4 inches at the top where we could see the Union colours. Clearly, he had bought or borrowed a Union Flag then off to his screen printer friends to ink out 90% of the Union Flag by being over laid with the stars and blue background EU design.

        His actions tell us much about the remainers. Destroy any reminder of the Union Flag. Paint over it to make way for the yellow stars.

        Very devious.

    Programmes (Political Bias)

    HC Deb 14 May 1958 vol 588 cc391-4

    Mr. H. Morrison

    Could the hon. Gentleman inquire into an apparent element of bias, which may be political or not? Could he inquire why it is that the B.B.C. assumes that nobody without a university education has any brains, and that normally nobody without a university education can appear on the Brains Trust? Will he try to stop this snobbish bias against people, like many of us on this side of the House, who have only 394 had an elementary education and are proud of it?


    And those MPs thought they had it bad.


  33. Scroblene says:

    The Daily Express seems to have caught the distaste of so many tv taxpayers getting their comments about bias on line!


    There are only so many more times that ‘Toady Trash’ can spout bile, as their awful leftie prominence just doesn’t wash any more!

    And I didn’t even watch it; well, I don’t bother, as there are far better ways to get news than endure overpaid second-rate hacks spit and dribble.

    They’re also hopelessly bad at asking questions too, Naga is nearly the worst I’ve ever heard, or unfortunately used to watch, when I had to get up to go to work!

    They really have to go as soon as possible; they’re a laughing stock in other countries, especially our friends.

    Nice one, DE!

    Some wag on twitter – in summing up the failed traitor PM – described her as a woman who was destined to be a ‘wilko store detective but instead landed up as PM ‘ – pretty sharp methinks – with apologies to any Wilco store detectives avidly reading this site….

    Do trust Boris will create a force to deal with this Remainer Media.
    he should start with opening up a second front on the bBC…..something that might neutralise them to some extent……….

    They’ve well and truly shown their weakspot with the over 75 Tax re-instatement…..

    I would start with inviting a Business Sourcing Group to put the bBc into 4 parcels or bundles with a view to completely outsourcing or
    partnering it with other external investors/providers.


  36. Thoughtful says:

    Here is everything which is wrong with Britain’s public sector, Tory cowardice and incompetence in their inability to halt something clearly wrong and the wating of millions of pounds of public money.

    Unaccountable malign fools heading government quangos going after those they dislike, and despite the elites having full knowledge of what they have been getting up to, doing what they do best – absolutely nothing.


    The case is too long and too flawed to type here, it’s well worth a read. It’s about the persecution of a Brexit campaigner by a government body, which has failed to be held accountable.


  37. Lucy Pevensey says:

    If he is taking any notice of the scowling press, perhaps Boris can learn to appreciate the unfair treatment D Trump has had at their hands. The advice of the US president could help him now.


    • G says:

      I may be proven wrong, but I don’t think BJ can ‘play’ the MSM & BBC the way the Potus can. BJ will be as deferential to the BBC etc as always.


    • Thoughtful says:

      Johnson is as supine cowardly and useless as any other Tory, post the BBC leadership debate mess when the whole media turned on the BBC for its bias Johson was trembling in his shoes too scared to speak out against them.
      It’s part of a long running record of expediency spinelessness and incomptence, then there are the issues of corruption regarding Iran.

      I don’t hold out any hope at all for Johnson being any better than the Marxist he is replacing, that’s if he can manage to hold his hate filled diverse party together long enough to actually do anything he might like to do.

      I give him six months before the hard line socialists in his party vote no confidence, then hopefully we can have a Labour government which will do the things they failed to and punish the awful tories backers.


  38. Dystopian says:

    Some serious brown nosing going on in PMQs now.
    Theresa is dragging this out.
    For god sake woman, just go!

      Steph could try for bbc junior reporter. They are hiring and are seeking folk with noses. Apparently. She may fail the Pantone test mind.

      Sorry that should be ‘givin’.


  40. Fedup2 says:

    A nauseating PMQs . I blame the building and ridiculous false traditions for making MPs engage in love ins of paying vacuous tributes to T May .

    Third world slavery seems to be her biggest achievement – forget the elderly social care reform needed for over a million people affected by it in UK
    She could have sorted that out but thought foreigners more important – bit like the disproportionate effort put into third world FGM as opposed to stabbing killings . Mad times

    Drain her swamp


  41. BRISSLES says:

    Interesting titbit from today’s Mail…………….

    “Why has Alan Rusbridger, principal of Oxford’s Lady Margaret Hall, appointed football pundit Gary Lineker as a visiting fellow ? Perhaps because they’re both prominent Remainers.
    Might Gary use his first lecture to explain why he refused a pay cut from his £1.75 millions salary ? He’s still the BBC’s highest paid star.”


  42. Nibor says:

    Tony Blair, John Major , Gordon Brown , David Cameron and Theresa May are all past prime ministers still alive .
    If I post an envelope addressed To The Worst Prime Minister Ever I assume to Post Office know where to deliver it .


  43. The General says:

    The new Prime Minister always has to go to the Palace to kiss Hans.
    So who is this Hans and why do they need to kiss him?


  44. Doobster78 says:

    Lets have some fire in your’e belly Boris …. just like this please !!!!

    And ….. cue Mr Trump !!

    No messing, just the job.


  45. Dystopian says:

    Rory Stewart has resigned. Good.


    • Scroblene says:

      I don’t even know what he did anyway…

      Wasn’t he the future has-been who followed the David Icke style of gobbledegookable nuttery, then started a rer-run of The Muppets, with himself as one of the peculiar-looking animals with a stick up it’s backside…?


    • smoogie7 says:

      Is the swamp draining itself?

      At least the Tories are leaning towards being a pro leave party now.

      As I said before: ‘They will miss May when she is gone’

      Saying that I watched May’s last PMQs and Corbyn was awful this week. I think that he will miss May more than anyone as his future meetings with Johnson will not end well for him


  46. Dystopian says:

    Not the BBC but had to laugh at this. Customer “furious” that the actual Tesco breakfast she received looked nothing like the photo in their advertising.
    Can she not see the irony in that the photo of herself has clearly been filtered with one of those apps to make her look better. I bet the actual person looks nothing like her photo either!



    • Fedup2 says:

      The BBC is busily advertising for the Remain campaign overly this afternoon . They have a helicopter over Buck house doing the kissing of Hans pantomime .

      The camera on the helicopter is showing a huge poster – about the size of a tennis court -being held out be a group of Soros funded bots.

      The poster has words to the effect of “ let the people decide “ in that they want another vote to get it right next time – to remain – that is .

      The shouting and the EU flags outside parliament which feature in every broadcast from there is a well financed desperate campaign to Remain .

      A neutral broadcaster would not had left the camera on the buck house poster for over a minute . But if course the EUBBC is not neutral and never was .

      Fortunately all the shouting and flags are just desperation and will fail .


      • The General says:

        BBC , Sky etc have the very simple technology by which they could reduce the very annoying sound of the chanting by that idiot on College Green and amplifying the voices of those being interviewed, but of course they choose not to. They could also stage the interviews elsewhere to avoid him.
        I am sure if he were shouting ” Get rid of Jeremy Corbyn” he would have been removed long ago.
        For the past three years he has been a pain the the you know what and one might ask is he being funded.


        • The General says:

          Seems he has been moved on by the police this evening and barred from returning to College Green. So why now after 3 years ?
          Will be interesting to see if BBc Sky continue with their interviews on College Green now their side show will no longer be there to constantly reinforce their message.


        • oldcrone says:

          “I am sure if he were shouting ” Get rid of Jeremy Corbyn” he would have been removed long ago.”

          Or “Free Tommy Robinson.”

  49. fakenewswatcher says:

    May is gone. I feel a sense of relief. Nothing personal, but she was the wrong person for the key project of the day.
    And lotsa porkies.
    How many times did she assure us we’d be out by 29 March?
    Politicians know no shame. Just like the MSM…
    In the end her bedside volume “Teach yourself staying put in power, regardless” by A. Merkel, didn’t help.
    Which is a compliment for the British people.
    They didn’t like it up them. (Credit: L. Cpl.Jones)
    Now we have to hope Boris is the right person…


  50. fakenewswatcher says:

    I wish the bbc could have chosen a venue or made provision to avoid the background shouters and screamers.
    Really annoying. They’ve made their point for weeks now, ad nauseum; I suspect there is a category of offence and that they could be removed. I suppose it’s a demonstration of the famous ‘tolerance’ that they’re not….
    Not a concession accorded to everyone who wants to exercise their democratic right.
    Must be the attraction of all those EU flags?


    • Dystopian says:

      Did anyone hear Mathew (Lefty) Wright, today on Talk Radio, alleging that the “Stop Brexit” guy had been assaulted by (quote) “a load of far right Tommy Robinson supporters”, who apparently broke his pole and his banners “causing over £1000 worth of damage”. I’m not sure if there was any substance to his allegations, but if those “banners and poles” cost him £1000, then 1) he was ripped off and 2) he must have bought them with benefits as he clearly doesn’t work.
      In any case it would seem that Mathew thinks that anyone who voted Brexit must be far right and in support of Tommy Robinson. Clearly an attempt to vilify the Brexit voters by making the link, despite the fact we all know Tommy has done nothing wrong.
