Tip #1 Don’t panic about a LOGOUT error when you’ve pressed POST
It’s just the system logs you out after a few hours
You won’t lose your post.
I always open a NEW tab and open the login page and login
Then I go back to the original tab and click BACK in the browser
my unsent post is always still there and I click POST
I see below someone posted a Twitter image and it’s come out huge
if you actually just post the URL of the tweet the whole tweet embeds automatically
..And automatically resizes itself
You can also post a Twitter image using the ADD IMAGE button below the POST button
but don’t use the suffix “medium” or “large”
leaving it as “small” is best
Following the efforts of the Lib Dems to score with the BBC’s favourite faith. Lib Dems join in the ramadamalinglong fast.
But this Lib Dem has bacon with his pre-dawn meal,
A useful idiot?
A useless eater?
All of the above.
As the old saying goes:
“I’ve half a mind to join the Lib Dems…”
“That’s okay – it’s all you need”.
I have to wear socks and sandals at the moment as I have a septic big toe…
Does that make me eligible for the Libdems?
Do they really make them this stupid?
Terrorism, arbitrary street violence, threats, and gang rapes of Infidel girls works .
All three parties are now prostrating to Islam.
I’m surprised the government has not asked the MCB to form a new sharia government.
He basically says
“sorry, this damn fasting thing and getting up in the middle of the night to eat fries your brain”
I bet labour will be worried that the Liberal Democrats are going after the Halal vote – but you can’t beat market competition . I wonder what sharia laws the liberal Muslims will adopt . ?
Some muslim in our country has ordered someone in our government to speak to the Chinese to get Tommy Robinson banned from Tick Tock, which is apparently a Chinese website or whatever these things are called.
It’s the labour mp for gorton Manchester, cant remember his name but hes one of our mussie friends . He had to say that as his constituency is mainly Muslim.
Little bit late this week. Luckily not the same kind of “late” as Comrade Kim though.
But is he really dead ? I think there’s a newly unemployed politician who lives in Islington ideal to continue to lead North Korea into the dark ages ….
Al beeb loves the NHS – all that gripeing about this or that – vested interest and money. – but has anyone heard anything about the super excel ©️ Hospital ?
Katie Hopkins reckons it is empty and there are no nurses . Certainly I can’t remember seeing any dance routines there – and it’s suitable for a huge – Olympic opening ceremony style – dance number complete with unused ventilator s and tons of hoarded PPE …..
Cue… Danny Boil…
Oh Danny Boyle, the PPE, the PPE is failing
From bed to bed and down the supply side.
The stock’s all gone and all the nurses’ wailing
It’s the EU, it’s the EU must provide.
But come you hacks the PM’s a bedfellow,
In the ICU it was touch and go
Now he’s back so cut out all the innuendo,
Oh our NHS, our NHS, we love you so!
But when you come and all the oldies are dying,
But not as dead, as dead as all the BAME,
You’ll come and find the words I am lying,
And squeal out ‘Gotcha!’ there for me,
And I shall fear, though oft you write about me,
That naught I do will satisfy thee,
For you will bend and twist all about me,
Because you can’t trust the Bee-Bee-Cee!
The NHS disgusts me.
The police disgust me.
The politicians disgust me.
The civil service disgusts me.
The Border Force disgusts me.
The police disgust me.
The judiciary disgusts me.
The press disgusts me.
The TV disgusts me.
The racist far-left bbc especially disgusts me.
What do they all have in common? We’re paying for these disgusting bastards!
Tunbridge Wells Borough Council and Kent County Council hate me, and lots of people in our village.
KCC ex-CE – Katherine Kerswell trousered this…
It later emerged that her remuneration package for the year she left the post was £589,165 – thought to be one of the largest ever pay packages in local government.
The figure included £420,000 for redundancy – a figure that reflected the number of years in total she had worked in local government.
After leaving KCC, she took up a role as Director General, Civil Service Reform for two years.
Following that, she went on to work for Capita, the UK’s largest business outsourcing organisation running an NHS-based business.
She also created a non-partisan, not-for-profit campaign group aimed at encouraging younger people to become more involved in politics – called ‘45 for the 45th.’
Nice ‘work’ if you can get it…
… concern among civil servants in the negotiating team about Downing Street’s hardline refusal to contemplate granting an extension to the trade deal’s 31 December deadline.
Well what a surprise.
A source with knowledge of the situation said the civil servants “are more or less the same group…that were there under the May years” and that they “have very different attitudes from David Frost and the people he’s brought in around him”.
Top comment from @Ronaldmcminn3
Replying to @StandUp4Brexit and @marksedwill
Mark Sedwill is the problem.
It would appear to me that the answer to an extension would be, yes, but we are going to use your salaries as public servants, to pay the extraordinary amount of money the EU is going to ask for. Watch out for the back pedalling then.
Mr Sedwill is evil and the sad thing is he probably doesn’t even know he is evil.
BBC deception knows no bounds.
A Google search, “BBC how long does coronavirus survive in sunlight” yields –
“The problem is we don’t know how long because it’s still too soon for many studies to have been done on the new coronavirus.
Just before President Trump’s comments about UV light on Thursday, William Bryan, a science and technology advisor at the Department of Homeland Security, presented some results from a study they have conducted into whether sunlight can kill the pathogen.
They found that when the virus was suspended in the air, its half-life – the amount of time it takes to deactivate half the particles in a particular sample – in “ordinary conditions” (20% humidity and a temperature of 70-75F (21.1-23.9C)) was around an hour. When they added sunlight into the equation, that shrank to just one and a half minutes.
“However, the study results have so far only been alluded to in the briefing and a leaked report – they have not been officially published or peer-reviewed”
The ‘leaked report’ is on Yahoo –
C_M, they also upped the humidity. That bodes well for places like Singapore and may actually explain why they have got Covid-19 quickly under control. I seem to recall that Hong Kong had relatively few cases for a larger, much more closely packed, population.
The laboratory –
EEes… a mystery…
bBC Commissioning replies…
Good post – thanks for this one, G W.
I must say I’m thoroughly sick of hearing the expression “award-winning” used about the latest lame woke BBC Radio 4 so-called comedy. The 6:30 pm slot has been poor and biased for many years and there’s now more of the same after 11 pm too. Who decides on these awards and why do they seem to be so numerous?
There is circle of female comedians promoted by the BBC who are seldom funny, e.g. Miranda Hart and Bridget Christie, compared to the late Victoria Wood, who really was good. ‘Thoughtful’, who posts here, pointed out how how bad the latest News Quiz was (6:30 pm last Fri’, repeated Sat’ lunchtime) – the show has been Leftist for decades but once upon a time it was regularly funny. There’s now an increasingly ‘ethnic’ dimension to R4 comedy, i.e. lets bash Whitey, who of course won’t be allowed to fire back.
Yorkshire Santa another who sees exactly what we see !!!!!
You just cannot win either way with this media. Damned if you do and damned if you don’t !!!!
Country File tonight.
Shows farmer Adam finds a lamb in his flock with a sore infected mouth.
Gets it into the pen and separates it.
Shows infected mouth to the camera. “ This is Orf. It is a virus???? ….. however, it is easily treatable with this disinfectant.”
As he proceeds to squirt the purple disinfectant into the lambs gob…….
I wonder how many corona infected BBC viewers will be squinting disinfectant into their gobs?.
I actually videotaped the scene, but unfortunately I don’t know to upload it..
I suppose the country file geezer isn’t by any chance a part time “expert” adviser to Big Don? It could explain a lot.
Tweet the mp3 file
Here’s the clip
davy, some people do it every night and every morning, for which you can thank the late Lord Lister. Its value has been questioned and the effect on humans is, iirc, very short-lived. Something like thirty minutes to an hour.
Great way to make money out of people, though.
@Davylars ..6 people noticed on Twitter
but none tweeted the clip
I didn’t see it on Facebook
Almost every commenter I see believes the medialand narrative “Trump actually thought you can inject 100% disinfectant into blood”
Jo so not helping.
Hardly contentious, unlike fox-wacking.
I really haven’t a clue what this sort of tweet is saying!
If the bloke is a lawyer, surely he can explain a little better?
“I really haven’t a clue what this sort of tweet is saying!” A real cynic might suggest paying dues via knowingly applied deductive fallacy. bbc can claim ‘look, both sides of the political spectrum claim the bbc are biased against them’, yeah, right.
S – “I really haven’t a clue what this sort of tweet is saying!”
I really haven’t a clue what this sort of ***t is saying!
Typical Leftoid, Maugham. Thinks that Al Beeb reporting news, just for once, is ‘nakedly cheerleading’ for the Government. He probably thinks that all of the reportage of Quartermaster McDonnell or the Corbynutta praising murderers and those trying to attack this country is fake.
BBC (and the press) do seem remarkably uncritical of all the Warden Hodges who are all over the place presumably doing the Government’s will
of course the biassed bbc is cheering. They are worried that BJ will stop their undeserved fat pay cheques.
8pm So why would ITV remake #VanDerValk ?
“Lets update a classic.
– Drop the theme tune.
– Make him edgier.
– Female sidekick.
– Female boss.
– Drunk pathologist.
– Black newcomer to team.
Think that’s enough boxes ticked for now. ”
Not only that, but the black guy is the brainbox
and whitey Van Der Valk is distainfull to him.
( Don’t forget black guy is on some spectrum or other
The main plot is centred around a gay bar )
..oh dialogue now ..about the father of the murdered character.
“his anti-Muslim sentiments are regrettable”
“De Klerk’s new rightwing think tank”
and his murdered son is gay with an Indian boyfriend
We are waiting for a character
a trans-gender child in a wheelchair surely
The original theme music
They should’ve kept the music !!!!
Yes, ITV did a tick box exercise, but there was also a lot of really bad acting going on. The Asian actress (mother) was abysmal , the young black guy was equally awful, the seductive café waitress was over-acting as though her life depended on it, and the pathologist was pathetic. Marc Warren was the only one who came out of it with credibility.
I switched on to Van dear Valk just as the Asian actress was supposed to be crying. At that point I had no clue about the story nor any of the characters. But the actress was hopeless. A two year old trying to cry would have done better.
This is the result of scriptwriters /casting directors being too diverse. The storyline was the Asian had met the father of her illegitmate child in another European capital – which means the actress and her son could have been any nationality, but no, they HAD to go down the pc route, which means we are subjected to an awful lot of substandard acting.
Dont watch any adverts. They consist of diversity nonsense. It is generally a black female, or white female, and a black male. If a White male is in the plot, then he performs the role of being slow, and things have to be explained to him.
A new one has quite literally a bird brain , in the form of a swan, explaining stuff to a white man doing a simple repetitive task.
It seems to me that these adverts are the result of the current crop of woke humanities graduates. This is the best take I have on this mindless twaddle.
Or the adverts are the result of official guidance, as the authorities are concerned that the people are holding them responsible for the mess this country is in. Hence all three parties engaged in praising Islam and Muslims for the great job they are doing.
Talking pictures are running the original Van De valk series at the moment.I wouldn’t waste my time watching any BBC remake, you know it will be crap, cannot compete with the original. Thank God for Talking Pictures, keeps me sane.
StewGreen – Does Van Der Valk drive an electric car?
He uses public transport.
Just what I thought. Never mind, the original is on Talking Pictures.
I managed about two minutes of the woke reincarnation of Van der Valk before hitting the ‘off’ button. That’ll be the sum total of my viewing time throughout the entire series.
Van der Valk’s female assistant is gay too!
Wonder when we find out the dog, Trojan? Trajan? is gay too. Apart from Marc Warren the dog is the best actor as well.
“help journalism in the UK.”
Help Julian Assange!
For a start they can stop their continuous persecution of the only Western political leader who cares for the West.
Why Turkey has a low death rate?
Also Indian doctors claim that they use HCQ in combination with zinc and an antibiotic, with great success.
Better day in Kent – 59 new cases of Covid-19 after previous daily increases of 141, 133 and 167. If testing is ramped up it will be interesting to see if the previous ‘worst’ of 195 gets beaten.
Has anyone in the media asked “Is the USA being deliberately infected with the Covid-19 virus?”
59? Why that’s fewer than the number of illegal immigrants Priti welcomed to the White Cliffs.
Re Trump : Here the excellent Mr Politico, takes apart
the #BiasedBBC’s editing trickery
Like playground bullies the wokemob media
MIS-REPRESENT Trump’s words
so they can score points
Actually the normally excellent Mr Politico made a BIG mistake here
08m45s “There is no doubt
that Trump did misunderstand
the reference to bleach
for the purpose of killing the infection on surfaces
as using bleach for possible injection
and that’s why he’s now having to back away”
There is doubt
#1 Trump didn’t use the word “bleach”
#2 He deliberately didn’t even say “disinfectant”
He said : “disinfectant” “knocks it out”
“is there a way we can do SOMETHING LIKE” “?”
to make it clear he wasn’t talking about bleach directly
Bleach is Sodium Hypochlorite and disinfectants are alcohol based .
President Trump did not mention bleach .
But even so , when a life is threatened , in the medical world they would use what is normally a poison or a substance detrimental to NORMAL human health to stop , retard or mitigate a life threatening happening .
Digitalis is one such medication.
Would you deliberately cut off the blood supply to an arm ? Well I suppose even a BBC hack would if a fellow beeboid was losing blood by the pint through his or her limb . That’s why medics are taught about tourniquets .
We only have to read the warning labels on a bottle of aspirin to realise there is a trade off when we’re not quite in the peak of health , never mind a disease that would kill us .
Who is Mr Politico?
Good question. He works very hard for the cause of truth.
Keep up old chap! Celtic_Mist has been there, done that!
I’m not surprised if the POTUS cuts short or doesn’t bother with press briefings if the BBC are typical of them .
It seems to be ask a question , any question , but don’t miss an opportunity to ask a question . Then get another one in .
Try to look intelligent and ask something inane but looks portentous .
At the next Laura Kuesenbirk asks if the minister has contacted International Rescue and when Thunderbird 2 has left Tracy Island with the PPE that someone said was going run out of at some hospital somewhere .
( although if International Rescue did land at Heathrow the Powers That Be would impound the aircraft unless it brought in bogus asylum seekers not medical supplies )
US lefty-site also called Politico
was caught ed handed making FakeNews
so they did the old trick
of publish extreme, then sneak back later with a tone-down edit
Politico edited on Saturday morning a story claiming Donald Trump owes millions to the Bank of China for a loan on a New York City office building,
hours after Breitbart News exposed the story as false.
The central premise of Politico’s story — that China was currently holding MASSIVE amounts of Trump’s debt (thereby making it difficult for him to critcize China) — was false.
In any normal situation, the story would require a prominent correction at the very least.
If Labour had won the BBC would have been leftist AND state controlled!
He’s right, “democratise it” . If you watch it, pay for it, if you don’t watch it , don’t pay for it .
Worth remembering Jez was the one explicitly guaranteeing bbc protection from funding concerns and accountability during the election.
And who is explicitly defending the bbc at all times.
The bbc often makes inferences from associations and endorsements, but seems keen not to get into this at all.
Grateful to Comrade Corbyn – the former great leader – to show open support for the BBC .
The next time the lefties try that smokescreen about the BBC being ‘biased to the Right ‘ – the support Comrade Corbyn gave it can be invoked .
Please don’t pay the TV tax – and it is an ideal opportunity to cancel your licence .,,.
… if particularly concerned about TV licence Stasi – which maybe rendered unemployable by the Chinese virus …
I suspect that the Times, one of Murdoch’s papers, will come out in support of the BBC for no other reason than to support more anti Brexit pro rejoin propaganda. The Sun May remain pro Brexit but the Times has been the house journal of remainerdom since well before the referendum. What I find amazing is the lengths that the MSM and Remainers/ Rejoiners will still go to defy the democratic choice of the electorate. They must genuinely believe that they have not just the power but the right to ride rough shod over democracy and that when they succeed in forcing us back into the EU, which they very well might do, we will settle down as though nothing had happened over the past five long years. Their conceit alone makes them repugnant let alone their wish to rejoin.
Times Radio will be more of the same. And The Times will be modelled on the NY Times, apparently.
“Body language” who gives a sh*t, we’re BBC.
We’re better than you lot so ‘p*ss off’.
Naga and that other twonk are toast when normal people have to put up with their thick stupidity. Especially Naga – a shoo-in for the thickos from Thick Street.

Coronavirus: ‘I’m tattooing myself every day in lockdown, but I’m running out of space’
By Sarah McDermott
Chris Woodhead has found a way to cope with the coronavirus pandemic:
A new tattoo on his own body for every day of the lockdown.
Chris has been regularly getting tattoos since turning 18, some 15 years ago.
Growing up, he was obsessed with the tattoo-heavy US punk music scene, ….
[Growing up? Really?
Amazing what you can discover when you only have £4,500,000,000 to waste.
Audience figures declining! I wonder why.]
This one has it all.
Just imagine the potential once the bbc gets the replies it seeks to run through the filter and try and steer governance by social media.
Al Beeb tried that with Brexit and failed.
I feel like saying to the Beeb and the rest of the knee jerkers you caused it you solve it. Do they have so few ideas, so few viewers and listeners that they have to keep confirming someone is there?
“What do you want him to do?”
I started writing a list but it got too long.
There are going to be a lot of these.
All run through the bbc edit suite filter.
Expect to see a lot of Sarah.
20,000 dead and the BBC produces a report about one of the victims. What a bunch of bastards eh?
Still fighting the good fight to make the world a better place I see.
What the BBC ‘report’, using who to convey what and why is one primary reason for its awesome reputation no doubt.
Perhaps Al Beeb’s investigative journalists can make themselves useful and find out where Kim is hiding ?
Agent Sweeney! headed there with a bunch of undergrads?
They won’t expect this as he is ex-BBC.
Worked so well in Iran, too.
Oh yeah Can see Sarah fading away before our very eyes .
People want to put us d-down
(Talkin’ ’bout my generation)
Just because we hang around
(Talkin’ ’bout my generation)
Things they say seem awful c-c-cool
(Talkin’ ’bout my generation)
I hope you die you silly old fool
(Talkin’ ’bout my generation)
I hear the Remainers say
Why don’t you all just f-fade away
(They’re talkin’ ’bout my generation)
I can feel a new sensation
(Talkin’ ’bout my generation)
It must be my intubation
(Talkin’ ’bout my generation)
Can you hear the Millenials say
Why don’t you all f-fade away
(They’re talkin’ ’bout my generation)
I’m not trying to cause a b-big s-s-sensation
(Talkin’ ’bout my generation b-baby)
As we all just f-fade away
My generation b-baby
For some reason this put me in mind of a speech from the excellent script of “A Man for all Seasons” by Robert Bolt.
MORE . . . If we lived in a State where virtue was profitable, common sense would make us good, and greed would make us saintly. And we’d live like animals or angels in the happy land that needs no heroes. But since in fact we see that avarice, anger, envy, pride, sloth, lust and stupidity commonly profit far beyond humility, chastity, fortitude, justice and thought, and have to choose, to be human at all . . . why then perhaps we must stand fast a little – even at the risk of being heroes.
1. Get #prasnews email.
2. Cut, paste, and publish.
A couple of weeks ago I posted that the bbc, who had been giving out running totals of the death numbers every morning on the radio, had strangely missed out giving us this number when the totals dropped from around the 800’s into the 400’s.
They restarted giving the numbers out again when the deaths went back up again.
Yesterday we had deaths in the 300’s, a huge drop and guess what?
Yes, they didn’t give the number out this morning.
It’s as if the bbbc don’t want us to hear what must be a really good sign of getting to grips with the virus.
How disappointed they must be.
I noticed that on the briefing ticker too – the number – for what it is worth -halfing in a day – might amount to news – but it wasn’t typed out or referred to .
It’s almost as though the BBC editorial has a drive to keep the lock down going – now whether this is to stick to government policy or for their own reasons is debatable .
In my little bit of north east London I’ve been out to shops once in the last two days . Roads are busier – there are more people around . I think people have had enough – a speech by Bojo won’t hack it .
The pressure to explain how the economy can get going again has to come soon – especially since the French are going to announce theirs Tuesday .
A good comment from Twitter, for once:
“Something I’ve learned through this pandemic is that journalists are just random people with opinions. My next door neighbour probably has opinions too. I wouldn’t pay much attention to what he thinks about politics, and I certainly wouldn’t pay for it.“
To quote the ‘great’ James Blunt.
“Opinion are like ars@holes; we all have one.”
Most churnalists talk out of theirs.
My Father used to say this too.
‘Opinions are like ar*eholes. Everybody has one. But it doesn’t mean you go about showing everyone yours’
BBC News at 9 am with Victoria Derbyshire. She is wearing a rainbow t shirt for gods sake.
Is she coming out as a lesbian or just pure virtue signalling.
Either way, the management should have told her to change into something suitable for reading the news.
Pathetic standards by the discredited BBC.
On Socialism for the Day today on Toady at 0750 we heard an unadulterated left wing polemic from someone in the ‘Ionian Community’. Self-isolating is of course pretty much what happens on Iona 24/7/365.
Who presumably will not have to pay towards the taxpayer funded largesse he was advocating.
I look forward to a centre-right Thought for the Day extolling the virtues of self-reliance, living within your means, individuality, small state, entrepreneurship, generating wealth through your own efforts, not relying on others, not expecting others to fund your own lifestyle choices. In the interests of balance, you understand.
But it could be a very long wait.
I think a great comment that should be thrown back at the media came from DR Birx when asked about the media fairness.
““Do you think the media in this country has been fair throughout this pandemic?”
Birx answered, “I think the media is very slicey and dicey about how they put sentences together in order to create headlines.””
Westminster Bridge crowds of police
On TalkRadio the retired was most offended at complaints
‘I wasn’t there, but all them police were properly spaced out.
The videos you saw, were members of the public that had come down to watch and so had formed crowds
I am sure this will not happen again’ ..my paraphrase
Mike G then pointed out that this was the second week in a row
and that Cressida had apologised after the first time.
Weird tweet from Peston
Peston got the black dog again . What’s the point of you bobby ?
One response to Peston:
@KayBurley of @SkyNews and other journalists clearly ignoring social distancing advice in Downing Street this morning… Staying@HomeMan (@SJJB55) April 27, 2020
They are ‘special’.
Looks like a handful of mourners at a funeral with the Vicar present……..

libmob have a Twitter meltdown against TalkRadio’s Mike Graham
Last night a guy with an Irish name was baiting him about
him not criticising the government.
MG maybe after a few beers
replied labelling him Paddy and thick
“racist stereotype ” the mob replied
That’s true, so MG deleted his tweet
Ah the guy was not just a random person
he is John O’Connell @jdpoc… the Anti-Tommy

Discussion about Peter Hitchens and whether Sweden’s non-lockdown is less successful than UK
Bottomline Sweden’s peak death day was the same day April 8th
Showing that peak catching the infection was about 3 weeks before
You can see if you use a graph of deaths by actual date .. Here is one
There’s a reporting delay
The later the date the more NEW reports to come in but 10 days back almost none
Not BBC, but I bet their news desks got the same press release.
Most of what passes for art these days, we would be better off without.
vlad – Those pictured pass most of it.
Know what I like when I see it is about my limit of art knowledge, never heard of this lot. My understanding was great artists lived impoverished lonely lives in a Parisian garret, and were only discovered after death. Ok, bit harsh, nevertheless they could always take the radical step of getting a job to finance their hobby.
Who are these people, are they meant to be important?
Never heard of them, but then I seem to inhabit the real world, so they may be from somewhere else – can they go back?
Ems, Laura, Beff, Nick, Pesto, Tubs…
BS replies. #CCBGB
When will she and the rest grasp they know little, are paid too much for it, and are not the guardians of truth they feel they are unaccountable self-elected powers to be.
Very civilised exchange about rearranging deckchairs.
Sorry to be so rude, but Emily is just spouting complete bollocks.
She really hasn’t a clue about how her lot at the BBC are perceived, and although she has a pleasant persona to start with, as soon as she opens her mouth, you can see she is an utter idiot.
I’ve put up with leftie people for much of my life (Emily will know some of them), and they are just a pain in the arse!
Bbc TV News at 1: Lengthy tributes to BAME ‘frontline’ losses on bbc news, children talking about losing mothers etc. Whatever sympathy one must feel, it is tempered by the knowledge that this has been a regular pattern on beeb, supporting Labour and giving rise to the Doreen Lawrence inquiry.
The personal thus becomes political, again, and the beeb really started it (with a little help the from of ITV). All the way through to Panorama tonight: “Has the Government failed the NHS?”
One could equally well ask: “Has the NHS failed the Government?” Not its frontline workers, but its top-heavy, many-layered management structures, Trusts, PHE etc etc, who apparently rehearsed a pandemic.
They will, no doubt, blame ‘cuts’ for not carrying it through. But I blame them; this was their job, and -no doubt- they were well paid to do it.
It’s quite clear that Surkeer will be using the pandemic to whip the government, and the bbc are winding up to help him.
Beeb obsession with ‘minorities’ is very one-sided, however. When Andrew Harding reported from South Africa, there was not a white face in sight! We saw only black and Asian faces, so BAME rules –except, in this case it was the Black and Ethnic Majority! No ‘minorities’ of interest here, for beeb.
There does seem to be a familiar bias here.
At least when the inquiry comes one of the questions for individual NHS management Is “ justify your pay “ .
Fed -will there be anyone asking it? beeb won’t!
TWATO – Jesus. All Ms Montague did was push interviewees to knock the Govt and its action on the lockdown…she didn’t succeed with some but moved quickly on to others with the PPE…
One would think she hasn’t been reading about how the public distrust journalists and their obvious loaded questions – designed for the bias sound bite
‘Reliable figures’ from the BBC reveal 70% and 75% drops in A&E patient attendance with heart attack, stroke and or cancer symptoms – though, oddly, they don’t appear to want to extrapolate these stats to be included in potential overall UK deaths. Better by far to assume that all are within care homes and all Corvid-related, because that’s a much thicker stick with which to beat HM Gov.
We were bombarded with programmes highlighting time wasters and piss heads wasting A&E.
It must be a fair assumption that they are staying home instead of clogging up the system. I haven’t seen it mentioned anywhere. All the media do is assume the missing are dead.
At a hospital in Kent (and assume most hospitals in the UK) all deaths are recorded as Covid 19 so we are never going to get an accurate number of ’caused’ deaths. My source tells me – what we’ve known all along, that the number of national deaths hasn’t even reached the number of deaths that are normally caused by flu each year. And at the same hospital, 40 locum doctors have been sent home – lack of nothing to do, while we are sat at home waiting for our hospital appointments.
Join Benenden, Brissles, you’ll get all you need…
“Saudi Arabia ends executions for crimes committed by minors, says commission”

Watch the Beeboids do their Rumpelstiltskin impersonations when we, the public, make them look like cub reporters.
