The EU Free Thread 31 January 2020

It has been 1316 days since the EU referendum . In that time – and before – we have witnessed the biased Far Left BBC running anti brexit stories every day all the time; and it has failed . It may show the decline of the BBC on shaping and influencing public thinking and public life . Let’s celebrate a new sort of Freedom .

    We fancied waving a couple of flags in the street here in Wokington last night but I was already wearing my dressing gown, so couldn’t be bothered. A few fireworks went off but otherwise it seemed quite a tempered affair locally.

    “I know “, I said, “Let’s watch the report on the Beeb to see what’s happening elsewhere”. Ten minutes later, the off switch was hit. What a load of negative spin on EVERY report from EVERY female reporter beginning with Laura Ktel. The funny thing was, we should have left it on the frame we found while reloading iplayer. You know how you can make someone look odd by choosing just the right frame to freeze? (E.g every photograph the Beeb show of Trump). Well, I swear we caught it just right as she was pursing her lips to say, “F… you”.

    I think we should have simply sat there watching that frame. A bit like those days when we used to sit staring at the test card after all the programmes had finished on telly. Said it all really.

    Craig at Is the BBC biased? lays out the BBC’s response to compalints about Nish Kumar suggesting Laurence Fox should be hit in the face with a shovel because of his comments on Question Time….

    ‘ Nish is well-known for a tone that’s occasionally confrontational. As a comedian from an ethnic minority, his act often touches on matters of race. Listeners may well expect him to be strongly opposed to Laurence Fox’s denials of racism, which emerged so controversially that week.’

    What? First, Kumar doesn’t just ‘touch on matters of race’…his whole schtick is based upon anti-white, anti-British slurs, second, being brown doesn’t give him licence to incite violence against someone…especially based upon the colour of their skin, and third, why may listeners ‘expect him to be strongly opposed to Laurence Fox’s ‘controversial’ comments’? Is the BBC saying that what Fox said was wrong and objectionable? Please explain. And if not why should Kumar ‘strongly object’? He objects solely because Fox is white…this is Kumar beng racist.

    It does seem that the BBC expects people, as the BBC and obviously ITV do themselves, to cringe in apologetic atonement for being white and to grovel for forgiveness for the supposed sins of their fathers….Fox, in telling them to eff off, clearly upset the narrative and refused to be browbeaten and made into some evil monster purely because he is white….this is Kumar’s violent racism and the BBC is complicit in it….The BBC hunted down Tommy Robinson for less…maybe he should have done a bit of brownface…it’d go down a storm at BBC House as long as he played the victim/racecard.

    H/T ITBB?
    Wow….too many white people and flying the British nation’s Union Flag is ‘unwelcoming’… racist….hmmm…a Union flag…divisive and racist? A flag that represents a union of countries and peoples? LOL…idiots…

    Hmmm…they come here why? So many seem to hate white people, they hate our culture, our society, our history…so what is it they come here for? Free NHS, free schools, free housing, welfare, law and order, no corruption[at least you’re not handing coppers bundles of pound notes to go anywhere], little violence except in the immigrant areas, lol, and apparently free sex with non-believer young white girls.

    When they try to trash your history and destroy your statues, your art, your literature, your educational curriculum as they ‘decolonise’ it [if we decolonise Britain surely all immigrants would have to go…only here due to colonisation]…is that not the same as what the Nazis did when they burnt the books they didn’t like before moving on to burn the people they didn’t like? You have to hope Nish Kumar might just settle for smashing a shovel in your white face and not go the whole gas chamber thing. And of course the Islamic State, following in Muhammed’s footstep’s, smashed the statues of other people’s gods and trashed their scriptures and cultural artifacts before subjecting the people themselves to horrendous oppression and often death.

    Afua Hirsch not only shares the same initials as Adolf Hitler but very similar racial ideas as she demands racial purity, racial apartheid, black supremacy and black pride. Lammy, if he were in South Africa would probably be singing ‘Kill the Boer’…tell me he would not when you see him in a racist frenzied attack on Brexiteers calling them Nazis.

    Nothing good comes from this ramping up of racial tension by the race industry drama queens…Afua Hirsch makes money and a career out of fuelling racial conflict, Lammy makes political capital out of inflaming tensions…both of them, and all the others on the same bandwagon, need to keep the cauldron bubbling, keeping up the narrative of blacks being oppressed victims, constantly finding offence in order to keep their careers in race-baiting bringing in the cash and capital.

    The BBC of course is always happy to give them a platform to perform their own ironic version of ‘Blackface’….if it was Monty Python it’d be ‘I was born blacker than thou, I was born int grass hut and raised by lions….’


    • Banania says:

      Is Afua Hirsch’s hair naturally frizzy? In pictures of her it is sometimes frizzy, sometimes absolutely straight and sometimes in between. Was her hair originally straight, and she later frizzed it? Or was it originally frizzy and she straightened it, then regretted what she had done and reverted to frizzy? (Search Afua Hirsch: Images.)

    One of my mantras in life is that there’s nothing wrong with making a mistake so long as you learn by it. But al beeb has not learnt a single lesson from Dec. 12th’s election result, therefore I now firmly believe that that very definition of ‘madness’, regarding them, may well be true ????
    ps-you can add the Labour party to that

    Al Beeb appear to be having a ‘bad hair’ week , what with their job cuts ,
    British independence , and now it looks as if President Trump is about to be acquitted. Its an Al Beeb hat trick !

    • Fedup2 says:

      Add to that an article in the FT saying the government will next week launch a consultation on decriminalisation of the TV tax and put in the same box as parking fines .

      Also a new MP – Julian knight – is in charge of the media committee – apparently the BBC and Mr Knight are not ‘ friends ‘.


      • ToobiWan says:

        If there was ever any doubts as to the depths the BBC have sunk in their hatred of the nation named in their logo, last night’s output, with its weapon’s grade bias, should have removed them from all but their most ardent supporters, the ones only found in the pages of the Guardian.


  11. StewGreen says:

    Trump will extend entry restrictions to more countries from Feb 22nd
    The media still call it a Travel Ban, but as far as I know, people are allowed in to visit once they have completed extended vetting as the policy is more about restricting people who want to come and live in the USA.

    “Six countries have been added to the list: Nigeria, Sudan, Tanzania, Eritrea, Myanmar, and Kyrgyzstan.
    In addition, “certain nationals” of Sudan and Tanzania will also be suspended from participating in the US visa lottery’


  12. JimS says:

    I watched Dangerous Earth = Aurora on BBC Four tonight. It could have been quite interesting but I don’t trust the BBC.

    I have never seen an aurora and I don’t know what they look like. Oh I have seen them on TV before, but have I? I have ‘seen’ earth-moving machinery apparently outperforming F1 racing cars, I have ‘seen’ bullets slowly bursting apart water melons. My own experience tells me that these images have been speeded up or slowed down, but what to do if one has no experience to relate the TV picture to?

    Of course the BBC has been faking science for decades, its ‘world class’ nature programmes from BBC Bristol have long been filmed on artificial sets, like the one used by a member of the public to win the Countryfile calendar prize.

    If they can fake nature what else are they faking?

      Ha ha! I can’t prove it, of course, but I strongly suspect that the concerned citizen “… who does not want to be named … “, and is a resident with plenty of opportunity to do so, printed those notices and put them up, just so he could create a ‘hate crime’ story. It’s an old trick.

    I expect any day now a Chinese-looking person will complain that someone gave them a funny look or a wide berth in a public place. The BBC will then pounce on this as proof of Sino-phobia, with one of their provocative ‘question headlines’ like “Are we racist towards the Chinese?”.

    Answer: No, just sensibly wary of possible Coronavirus carriers.

      The BBC Human Resources department is busy looking for any Chinese employees it might have, who could be persuaded to be ‘ordinary members of the public’ for faux-victim reporting stories. Unfortunately, in the rush to recruit as many black and ‘Asian’ (sic) people as possible, they appear to have overlooked this demographic. Well, if they will insist on working hard and living their own lives quietly, rather than being foot soldiers for self-hating white liberals, what do they expect?

      It is interesting to see the vast number of comments saying the same thing. I watched and listened to the BBC Friday and yesterday for the first time in weeks and all I heard was negative comments about Brexit and the voices of the Rejoiners..
      Boris really has to do something about the BBC


      • Fedup2 says:

        James – 2 days after the event on Friday I am still bugged by the fact that both ITV and BBC ended their ‘rejoin specials ‘ at 2315 . Compared to other things they give air time to this is nothing but remainer spite .

      I’m guessing that no one mentioned that the actual referendum result for Scotland was 1.6 million to remain but a million to leave . The latter don’t get much of a mention when it comes to the Biased BBC


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      The question of ‘held to account’ is an interesting one. Given the seriousness of the matter, its national importance and the need for ‘closure’ and to heal the wounds, some people are wondering whether we need something akin to the ‘Truth and Reconciliation’ commissions that have been held in countries such as Canada, Chile, Morocco, South Africa and others.

      In the case of Britain, one important thing to ascertain relates to certain high-profile individuals in the political sphere, media, civil service, business and so on. Specifically: was that person sincere and acting on genuinely held convictions? Or, is there reasonable evidence that they were acting for or on behalf of foreign powers, individuals, groups, or other organisations?

      The purpose of such a commission is to discover what happened and help heal the rifts in a society. It is not a witchhunt or show trial, or a mechanism for punishing those with ‘the wrong view’. However, depending on the findings, it may need to be supplemented with criminal trials for those who have done serious wrong, such as committed treason (see Crime and Global Justice: The Dynamics of International Punishment by Daniele Archibugi & Alice Pease, Polity Press, 2018).

    And so the anti British BBC continue with their propaganda campaign on behalf of the enemy. Be in no doubt these people are not our friends.

    They were “rather un-European and rather irresponsible,” he added.

    On Mark Lardell’s Sunday version of TWATo they had an actor speaking part of BoJo’s valedictory speech to the nation, the one Al Beeb refused to broadcast.

    #Thick was the hashtag that Wokemob used on the 31st against Brexiteers

    To me that is a strange paradox
    cos having come home with £20 worth of food again last night for £2 cos it’s sell-by day
    and having come home on Wednesday with a 1.6Kg chicken for 75p , after picking up a perfectly good cock-pheasant on the road
    and having bought turkeys after Xmas for 10p/pound
    .. it does seem to me that a good portion of foodbank users seem to be thick
    cos they lack basic shopping skills and do spend money on scratchcards alcohol and huge dogs etc.

        Anyone else noticing a change in tact with the way the Streatham terrorist incident is actually being reported as such? Also noted that the presenter on the live BBC news channel seemingly supporting the police in their decision to shoot the suspect and even explaining that this was understandable due to the fact that the suspect had something strapped to his body and that the police wouldn’t have known whether it could have detonated when disabling the perpetrator.
        I think they know their time is up. Too little too late me thinks.

        However, I did note that they didn’t want to show us any pictures of the dead terrorist because they were “distressing and upsetting in nature”
        Distressing and upsetting to woke leftists I suppose who would be upset for the poor dead terrorist?
        Personally, I don’t think there is anything distressing or upsetting about a DEAD terrorist.


    • Tabs says:

      BBC News anchorman is looking very uneasy and squirming when witnesses are calling in with their reports mentioning the word ‘terrorist’. At about 15:15 BBC were using the word “terrorist” with ease but by 15:40 it is now known as a “South London attack”. The editor must have been out of the building but normality has been restored.

      It will take hours for the BBC to establish the facts so for those who cannot wait, here is the dead terroristlone wolf mentally ill British National aspiring rapper/doctor.
