Start the Week Thread 11 May 2020

Let’s play an online biased Far Left BBC game .

I’ll start . If a lefty is on the BBC they won’t be introduced . They are ‘ accepted ‘ . If some one of the Right is ( rarely ) put on the airwaves they are introduced as being ‘ from a right wing think tank ‘ or similar .
There should be a prize for spotting this if you still take the BBC – but this is a non profit site – so it’s just for fun …

    Fedup2, I think the government, MPs in general and the police have overstepped the line. There’s too. much telling from them and hardly any listening by them let alone doing anything we ever tell them.

    They introduce something made up called social distancing and then throw the term around as if it’s always existed as a legitimate thing.

    They introduce new fines for not obeying their arbitrary orders and then increase them because we’re not obeying them with enthusiasm.

    They bring into the country thousands more illegals but lock us up like criminals while the real criminals are allowed to roam free.

    But never, not once, have they bothered to ask us for permission to do these things.

    Then the MSM, especially the racist far-left bbc, ignore these real and serious matters in favour of bitching about how many rubber gloves the government has sourced. Of course on that point, it’s never the fault of the untouchable NHS, whose procurement managers should be held accountable for their incompetence.

    But Mrs Patel should have already stopped all illegals coming into our country and formulated and begun to implement a plan to rid our country of all illegals, starting with the muslims who have been kidnapping, raping, torturing and murdering our children. But I don’t think it’s going to happen because all the rats are still in control of whatever plan they have concocted amongst themselves. And the swamp is just as wide, deep and filthy as ever in the HoP, Civil Service, judiciary and police.

      I suspect that Priti is at all out war with the civil servants in the Home Office and every time she wants something to happen, in true Bernard style, they are saying, ‘it cannot be done because….’. I suspect under Mrs May they stitched everything up to stop mass immigration into this country and everything they could to stop Brexit.

    Friends say Twitter is trying to suppress the #Obamagate hashtag

    As far as I can gather it appears that evidence has emerged to show that Obama masterminded Comey’s now discredited FBI investigation of Trump/Russia collusion.

    Since the libs at Twitter are desperate to kill it – I guess it must be true.

  12. pugnazious says:

    Poor old, evermore political, Emily, just can’t understand what the government advice is….perhaps she should stay off the wine in lockdown.

    Then again poor old Laura can’t understand the advice, so much so that even when Boris had spent a good length of time explaining things to Pooja [quite possible a Labour plant] poor old Laura asked exactly the same question demanding to know why the government was putting out such a confusing message that was so perplexing the nation? Thinking on her feet obviously not a skill she has acquired….nor thinking ahead and perhaps having a second question at the ready.

    The BBC has invested a good deal of time and effort trying to rubbish the government’s latest move. Saturday and Sunday was a barrage of speculation seemingly designed not to enlighten but to confuse as caller after caller, guest after guest, was streamed through, all demanding the lockdown stay in place.

    Today it all came to a head with the BBC, in concert with the Labour Welsh administration and the Scottish nationalists, all declared they too were confused, perplexed and mystified about the vague message Boris had delivered unto the nation….never mind it all seems perfectly clear.

    You knew what the day would bring as early on a BBC presenter, under pressure from fact-checking callers as she spread the message that no-one understood what Boris meant, admitted that yes, there would be a statement in parliament later in the day, and that a 50 page document explaining things in detail would be released later on today but…wasn’t Boris just too confusing, where was the detail? Not sure anyone would listen to Boris reading a 50 page document listing every possible scenario that the BBC’s cleverer than clever journalists could dream up but the BBC clearly thinks that is just what he should have done.

    The BBC is relentlessly pumping out a Labour/SNP narrative about confusion and vagueness when there isn’t any….it’s quite clear what Boris intends with people going back to work…it’s not much different to before…and as for the ‘Stay alert’ message? In what way is that vague or hard to understand? Several BBC journos have tried to be clever and asked ‘Just how do you stay alert for a threat you can’t see?’ I guess the same way we have been doing for weeks now…keep your dstance, maintain hygienic practices and avoid unnecessary situations where you might catch the bug. Not difficult….stay alert to the threat and try to minimise it by taking reasonable precautions.

    The BBC et al are being wilfully ignorant in order to sow confusion and division. The BBC knows perfectly well that the message is clear and simple, they also know that Labour is playing politics and the SNP is trying to work the independence angle….neither caring a jot about the people, their jobs and lives….its all about ideology and politics…the people are there to work for the party, the party isn’t there to work for them…so, so Soviet Union…Hadrians Wall starting to look more like the Berlin Wall everyday.

    The BBC getting evermore blatantly anti-government. Time to put it out to grass…..and if they keep on telling us how concerned they are now about the poor old workers[those Brexit voters they all hated not so long ago] why don’t they show some solidarity and all take a pay cut as they work from the comfort of their homes but still raking in the £100’s of thousands for doing very litttle, and doing it badly?

        The electrician who had to call here on two emergency occasions wasn’t an expert, he’s just a normal, experienced, sensible man, doing his job properly, using his common sense, and will get his money as soon as I log into my bank in an hour!

        It’s only tossers led on by the BBC who whinge and whine, not real working people.

        If Ms Maitlis could actually become a normal worker, instead of trying to be famous, she might get some approbation, but that’s impossible ‘working’ for the BBC, because her under-managers just stifle common sense at every turn.

        Maybe she’d do better working for herself?

      Satan’s little lawyerly speech could easily be described as ‘courteous’ and ‘forensic’.
      Sound familiar?

      Meanwhile Starmer dodges a question about an extension to the transition period

      Two comments:

      Without a puppet-master in Brussels or Washington (Biden is not looking promising) pulling Labour’s strings, Starmer doesn’t know how to respond.

      Starmer will be aided and abetted by the organ-grinder. Remember. With the Blair foundation’s statement about having ’embedded types in all major Govt, I would assume that to mean common-purpose types. I don’t doubt those who say Starmer will also have ‘friendly’ inside info from within the civil-service. This network runs very deep and very wide.

    BBC fake news as it puts up a fake quote trying to make Boris look bad…he did not say…

    ‘”We’ve now made so much progress in combatting the disease… that we need to make progress” replies Boris Johnson’

    A bizarrely clipped quote that completely misses context and meaning.


    • taffman says:

      I must say that was well spotted by you. It shows that they have an agenda, but who is driving that agenda ? It just goes to show what they could have been doing when reporting on President Trump ? Surely the government with all the resources it has at hand can act and expose all the propaganda?
      If Boris does nothing about Al Beeb after that, he’s nuts.

    Strange, I spent a working lifetime taking that equation for granted.
    Paul Moss seems to think it’s newsworthy.
    And now the beeb is reporting crap.(Nothing new there). Samples from water treatment works are at issue. Is Coronavirus being spread in sewerage systems?
    Always knew more or less at what level beeb operates. Tonight is simply more explicit than usual. It’s Shaun Ley reporting.
    Mainly sewerage, as usual from beeb.

    There seems to be no pretence of impartiality from the BBC anymore.Same this evening on Sky News press preview, with Stig Abell and Jenny Kleeman.Two remainer Left wing newspaper columnists.It does seem a concerted effort from the MSM to rubbish the Government at every opportunity.


    • JimS says:

      In a court of law each side gets to challenge the other side’s witnesses.

      In the world of the Marsupial Media the government is challenged but those with an opposing opinion get a free pass.

      If the media was impartial those opposing the government would be subject to the same scrutiny, instead it is left to the government spokesman to do it.. if they can.

      “Minister, what do you say to those that criticise your performance?”

    I haven’t used a bus since the ‘lock down’ but tonight my walk around the perimeter wire happened to coincide with the arrival of a bus at a terminal stop.

    The doors were open and it was quite clear that all the ‘buggy’/wheelchair spaces had been taped off. I asked the driver if that was for his protection and he said, “A bit of both”.

    It looks like after years of pushing ‘public transport’ the young and old are now to be confined to the home and the streets are to be given over to the ‘bastards-on-bikes’, (pavements are for people; velodromes are for bicycles).

    One thing that used to be noticeable in films from China were the number of people on bicycles – is that what is happening, our Chinese masters have issued their dictat and we will now obey?

    Coronavirus: ‘Do not drive from England to Wales to exercise’
    2020-05-12 10:30

    Laura McAllister, professor of public policy at Cardiff University’s Wales Governance Centre, called the differences in policy between the nations “reckless”, “unforgiveable” and said they were putting people’s lives “in jeopardy”.

    “reckless” “unforgivable” “jeopardy”
    The sort of terms one might use if one was a bent lefty in the pay of our Marxist enemy at Broadcasting House.
    Which she is.
    The sort of Marxist enemy who does not mention the connexion, again.
    The BBC never feels it necessary to describe these people as “little Welsh” or in posts earlier in this thread, as “little Scots”.

    From Wikipedia
    As a Wales women’s national football team player, McAllister won 24 caps and served as team captain.
    She was a Board member of Stonewall[4] from 2012 to 2015.
    She was a member of the National Assembly for Wales Remuneration Board from 2014 to 2015, an advisor to the Independent Panel on Assembly Members’ Pay and Support from 2008 to 2009
    McAllister was a Plaid Cymru Parliamentary candidate in 1987 and 1992 but left the party shortly afterwards.[11].
    She is currently a political commentator for the BBC and commentates regularly on other networks and Welsh media on Welsh politics, elections and public policy.



    • JimS says:

      I have just had a look at the ‘Welsh Law For Welsh People’, (which by the way they have to review by Thursday this week), and it puts restrictions on people leaving home.

      But if one is English then most likely one doesn’t have a home in Wales and if Welsh Law applies to Wales then it doesn’t apply to England so the Welsh Assembly can’t stop an Englishman leaving his English home. As there is nothing in the SI to stop or control people crossing the borders it looks like there is nothing to stop the English going into Wales to exercise. Of course once there they would need to behave themselves as regards spacing etc.


      • taffman says:

        The Welsh Assembly is out of “lockstep” with the people of Wales.


        • fakenewswatcher says:

          taffman – Was Labour’s ‘devolution’ strategy not merely a silly little Labour plot designed to cause division and sow discord in the UK, under the guise of giving various ‘nations’ their ‘semi- independence’?
          That is the real reason that assemblies are ‘out of lockstep’ with their people’.
          Imagine they had done this on the eve of WW2. You would have had Wee Crankie deciding the Scots wouldn’t fight Hitler (actually a fellow ‘national’ socialist) ,and possibly Wales and NI following her lead.
          It has taken the first real national crisis, coronavirus, to expose these divisions, and give the Blackfords of this world the opportunity to stir up trouble.
          Unsurprisingly, Mark Drakeford has followed Crankie’s lead in order to demonstrate how ‘Cardiff too, is able to disagree with Boris.’
          This has enabled an ever watchful beeb to gleefully create the narritive that it’s England v. the rest.

    What the heck are they thinking? We’re doomed!
    Plus, within the article these words: ‘….we have looked after some of the lowest paid people in our society – the hardest working people – and we will continue to do so.’

    Clear pandering to socialists, and also not true. How offensive to say that as you earn more, you don’t work as hard??


  28. Guest Who says:

    The Moaning Emole covers what ‘the papers’ say, in an order which is, shall we say, ‘very BBC’..


    What the papers say

    Paper review

    There’s anger in several papers at the return to work message. The Financial Times says the call to the manufacturing and construction sectors, in particular, suggests a “cavalier attitude towards the welfare of blue-collar workers”. The Daily Mirror thinks “the fight against coronavirus has tragically become a class war”, and fears “there will be exploitative bosses who cut corners or do nothing” when it comes to workplace safety. The Guardian feels that in general there have been “mixed messages and confused assertions” on lockdown easing and the prime minister urgently needs to come up with a plan the country “can understand and unite around”. On its front page, though, the Daily Mail tries to be more positive. It’s happy that relatives who don’t live together will be able to see each other, using the headline: “We ARE going to meet again.” The Sun goes further, reporting on plans for a “Gran day out” with “hugs for grandkids from the first of June”.

    ‘Anger’ in the FT, Mirror and Graun, eh? No wonder the BBC put them on the podium.

    Surprised they don’t also feature Ekka Dickhead in The Times.

    Might even see Jon RTing the competition as a professional courtesy.

    • Roland Deschain says:

      If truth be told, it would do no good, as the current leader of the Scottish Tories, Carlaw Jackson, is an epic disaster who actually makes me yearn to have Ruth Davidson back. I had many criticisms of her, but she at least knew how to take the attack to Nicola.

      But there’s a principle here.

      Those south of the border must scratch their heads as to why the SNP retain such support. In part, it’s because the SNP rarely gets the blame for anything. Health is a devolved matter and there have been exactly the same PPE problems, testing shortages, elderly deaths in care as there have been south of the border. Carlaw Useless Jackson hasn’t laid a glove on Nicola about it. Perhaps he thinks it would be against Queensbury Rules. And the media treat her like royalty. But an awful lot of people up here still get their news from UK sources so all they hear is relentless Tory bashing and assume all that goes wrong is his fault.

      So Mr Jackson should at least get his chance to redress the balance.

  33. Scroblene says:

    One positive ideal to emerge from the Covid 19 situation, will be that the BBC will eventually be seen as the worst conveyor of proper news amongst a motley ‘press’, made up of kids at The Mirror, idiots at The Times, and leftie pricks at the Groaniad.

    The awful ‘policies’ of ‘Catch Boris’ coming from W1AA at every turn are already becoming a boring record of the complete incompetence of the under-managers and their auto-cue readers, and when this is seen by enough normal working/retired/sensible citizens, (some need info and perhaps a connection to an alternative to a humdrum life admittedly), the incisions can be made, and our once-pride of broadcasting can be cast loose and just paid for by any person who needs such ‘connection’. It won’t be me.

    What a sad old bunch of wasters they are up there! Totally oblivious to real work and practices, sneering at the skills and judgement of normal, hard-working people, and just plain boring with enough fake news to make China look honest!

                \\ ‘UK’s Hidden Shadows – Inspired by Out of Shadows’
                is a new documentary examining the recent history of allegations of child abuse and cover-ups within the British establishment.
                Filmed over the course of a year, the 90-minute documentary features interviews with victims of child abuse, journalists and police whistle-blowers. Each interview offers a unique insight into the alleged Westminster VIP paedophile ring that has darkened politics for the last five decades.
                UK’s Hidden Shadows was inspired by Out of Shadows,

                  There seems to be a protest on Saturday from people connected to the documentary
                  a Facebook group poster complains of BBC staff trying to get details of the protest on the premise that they are making a documentary about it.
                  He warns people not to co-operate
                  Then new people post asking where the protest is
                  ..and he can’t tell them cos they might be BBC spies as well.

            Hangon @FEd BBC have broken moral law
            ” they threw in that ever green ” “RACIST” into the headline

            but look at the charges he has *not* been charged with racism nor hate crime


            • Fedup2 says:

              That was my original point . Missy seema and the coloured girls were all over the ‘racial abuse ‘ they receive every day – yet when this charge is bought there is not racially aggravated tag attached to it .
              Unusual for the CPS not to bung that on to anything where ‘victim’ ic coloured ….

              Sounds like the makings of a trial – although I suppose the BBC will have filmed the chap using allegedly bad words …..

              Better time and effort spent by the local plod than going after the drug importers – akthough its a fair guess that plod has been infiltrated by their relatives to achieve the much sought after diversity the bubble dreams of …


              • StewGreen says:

                @Fedup2 ah yes you did but your wording was too subtle for me

                His Facebook says he said ‘BBC get out of town and don’t come back’
                I guess she would say she heard ”you (brown person) get out of town and don’t come back’ and took it as racist

                Interesting thing is that when BBC film on the street their is plenty of social media footage.
                But nothing is on Twitter.

        Wow so many virtue points awarded in one Twitter feed.. the ones I scratch my head at are the ones that mention Nigel Farage etc..

        This is one reason why I don’t do social media (does Biased BBC count?) banal…insipid..dumb as F888

        and why so called professional people have to use it this way just shows how low we have sunk – at least Prescott would have just hit them…


        • Fedup2 says:

          James – I’d say Biased BBC doesn’t count as social media – I don’t do any – but I monitor the twitter – which can be hugely entertaining – the stuff ms Bruce is getting today – I’d be careful appearing in pubic because of the online views – but I know the vast majority of people twitter their anger and abuse but nothing else …


          • JamesArthur says:


            Yes I would be careful appearing in pubic too 🙂

    How it’s done.


    • StewGreen says:

      I think people are already aware that when they criticise a BBC voice
      they are often criticising a glove puppet trapped inside the bbc machine.

      I pity those good BBC staff.


    • Jeff says:

      And how much ‘skill’ is needed to read the autocue?
      Not much…


      • taffman says:

        Glove Puppets they are , well paid puppets at that , conspicuous by their silence, earning their livings from a forced taxation of the poorest people. Cut off their ‘life line’ by ceasing your payment.

        That is the bit that hit home most.

      Isn’t it nice when BBC droids get caught out —- with what they really think ?
      It’s the bubble
      Ordinary people are just there to be used for the next story –

      Be it a 100 year old veteran or a
      ‘ low skilled’ care worker – or the cleaner they employ .

      Nice to see the mask slip

      On twitter Monday night I was watching how ‘ Obamagate ‘ was being subdued by twitter –

      And ‘ Fiona Bruce’ was ‘trending ‘
      ( I don’t really know or care what that means ) but now I know why .

      I bet the BBC management will be doing plenty of Skyping and zoom today .
      If she’d called hospital workers ‘low skilled ‘ she’d be jumping off Westminster bridge during the Thursday clapping session

    #CCBGB for those BBC staff still posting how loved they are.

    Boris and @MattHancock remembered to put up virtue signalling tweets
    On International Nurses Day we want to thank nurses across the country for all you’re doing
    – particularly at this time.


  43. Fedup2 says:

    The Express has a story that a conservative MP ‘called out ‘ a journalist called Piers Morgan for his ‘ interviewing style ‘ . And the confrontation was ended through ‘technical problems ‘ – another technique used by the MSM to control things went they aren’t going their way.
    It seems that these TV journalists are now in a battle to out monster each other – presumably for higher ratings .

    Maitliss – marr – Peston -Robinson – et al – who all like the sound of their own voices have plenty of competition .

    The irony is – of course – is that although they all adopt the interrupt- sneer – bully – technique with those they clearly do not ‘ like ‘ they all lack the ‘ diversity of thought ‘ so yearned for by viewers who want to be informed .
    But news as show business – with show business pay rates does that I suppose …..


  44. Jeff says:

    The ludicrous criticism re Boris’s call for us ‘Be alert’ is becoming infantile.
    What do they want?
    Use your bleeding initiative.
    It’s part of being a grown up.
    Some of these pathetic whingers will be expecting the PM to go round and wipe their…..noses for them .
    My three year old granddaughter has more sense.


    • Fedup2 says:

      What they want ?
      I think they want people to die . They have no morality – no interest in ordinary people – they are the bubble . They are a political movement in themselves pretending to be journalists .

      They want to see that damned graph go up as a result of the lock down being lifted – so that they can continue to destabilise a Tory government and get what they really want – a Marxist one which will rejoin the EU so that nation states can be ended ( apart from Germany of course ) .


    • JamesArthur says:


      I don’t know how the BBC and MSM find these people as nobody I know seems to have a problem understanding…

      Breakfast this morning – the Matt Hancock half hour all Munchin could do was put on a terribly worried frown and talk about all the confused anxious people who had sent questions into them..

      FFS it is clear what it all means and if they are uncertain read the bloody report -it is not a difficult one to get through – it even has pictures!

      I really can’t stand more than 30secs of any MSM at the moment


      • Doobster78 says:

        Saw that James. He was answering a question and said “public spaces” and Louise jumped all over it, Public spaces ? Public spaces ? Thats changed from Parks then ????? She was so excited … Hancock just said “No, its always been public spaces”

        thought she had her Gotcha moment …alas No. !!!


  45. Thoughtful says:

    A thought crosses my mind regarding how so called journalists are viewing their positions.

    “A journalist is a person who collects, writes, or distributes news or other current information to the public. A journalist’s work is called journalism. ”

    This is not how many journalists appear to see their jobs. Whenever I hear them talk about ‘holding politicians to account’ my hackles rise, for it is the job of a politician to hold another politician to account, and the job of a journalist to merely report the news.

    If you are seeking to hold politicians to account, in todays media it inevitably means you are a far left activist either Fascist or Communist seeking to attack anyone who holds views different to your own.

    Even the Daily Mail which used to support the Tories has fallen victim, and in a Piers Morgan piece he has finally begun to call out Boris and his Tories as Cowardly Useless and Incompetent – something I have been saying before they were elected.

    We cannot expect the cowardly useless incompetent Tories to do anything about the broken media, nor about the BBC we just have to keep hoping for an alternative which might never arise. The appetite for another Margaret Thatcher is certainly there, but Boris is a pale shadow of even the hopeless Edward Heath.

    As some have suggested, maybe the coronavirus has adversely affected him to the extent he might have to step down, but who in that hopeless bunch of incompetents might replace him?

    One thing is for certain, none of them will fix our broken media, and that would be an easy start, and a much needed one too.

    R4 just now claiming 6,000 tonnes of lead shot is used “per year” in the UK

    ..i think their time period seems wrong.


    • JimS says:

      I make that about half a million shots per day, so on average every shotgun owner has a ‘bang’ every other day.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Jim – I’ve not shot clays for a while but must give my browning some exercise soon – at least social distancing comes with guns …


      • StewGreen says:

        but these days many people don’t use lead shot do they ?

    Another (cross party) BRINO attempted coup revealed – this time via ‘amendments’ to the Agriculture Bill.

    Simon Hoare and Neil Parish – both Tory MPs – have tabled very similar additions to the bill. The amendments, which seem harmless enough at first glance, aim to stop any agricultural goods under a trade agreement from being imported if they were made with lower standards than the UK has. Keir Starmer has also tabled a similar amendment which would have the same effect.

    And they have a large amount of support: In March 45 MPs signed a letter organised by Neil Parish calling on the International Trade Secretary Liz Truss to ensure the UK ensures ‘equivalent standards’ with other countries on agriculture.

    Coronavirus doctor’s diary: ‘They say I have blood on my hands’

    Within Bradford’s Asian community a few individuals are spreading fake news that non-white patients will be left to die in hospital.

    Interesting how the BBC find such a wild BAME accusation is open for debate and explanation. Compare that to a certain white person worried about 5G masts and then they are banned from ever voicing an opinion on any social media ever again.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Wow – just checked the twitter and ‘ Fiona Bruce’ is not getting the sort of comments a revered Saint from the BBC might be expected to get .

      In fact she’s getting the full load …

      By the way – Gordon Poole is her agent if you want her as an after dinner speaker – she charges between £10k and £15k a go in peace time .,,,


      • Charlie Farley says:

        Bruce payment 10 -15k for talking crap for half an hour or so and on top the huge salary , the average state pension is just under 10k for the year ……no wonder she thinks she’s important and highly skilled !
        Obviously I have wasted my life becoming an engineer…..Thankfully I no longer part pay her wages


        • Fedup2 says:

          In a previous life I had to hire someone to do one of these speeches . I only had a 5k budget so I landed up with a little known journo who has now become a BBC staffer regularly on your screen

          These BBC people keep the ‘ after dinner ‘ and ‘ conference ‘ stuff quiet because it is very big money . The Lenny Henry starts at £20k for a couple of hours –

          If anyone really wants to wins themselves up – go google – you can buy a load of BBC droids for 10k or 20k –
          Lucky they are not “ low skilled” right ?

    Last night the PM and senior health officials gave a formal briefing together with a lot of questions from the public . The BBC 1 ran it from 1900 to 1932 – then it cut away – I think their chief mouthpiece – kuensberg went off with her personal opinions – I don’t know this because I switched to a channel that carried it .

    I could not see a reason for the national broadcaster to cut away from such an important briefing on such an important day . —-hell – there wasn’t even East Enders on until 2000.

    This has been widely noticed – the BBC is taking plenty of flak – still – about what they did to treat the british PM – however much the MSM hates him – from conducting business .

    It’s as though the British voters didn’t vote for him less than half a year ago ……
    Please don’t pay the TV tax
