    BBC didn’t let us down tonight with Antiques Roadshow. First item a 1000 year old Islamic glass although it turned out to be fake, then when Fiona asked members of the audience behind her, she asked one Asian and one very black lady with blue hair. It is just so obvious that the BBC is racist, these people were asked BECAUSE they were black. The people attending were more than 99% white ie looking at all the people queuing for there items to be seen all appeared to be white.
    Martin Luther King wanted people to not be judged by the colour of their skin, great shame the BBC cannot understand his words.

      The quiet desperation of the BBC is there for all to see. Having driven a wedge into our society it pretends that all is well.
      Surely there must be at least one honest man or woman still there who can see the fraud that it is now. .


    • Scroblene says:

      We just don’t bother watching these programmes any more, Deborah, they’ve all deteriorated to weak dross over the last few years.

      When you think how important The Archers was as a programme, with real information in the every-day issue, once they appointed a screaming idiot from East Enders to direct the programme, it started to lose listeners in droves. Senora O’Blene, a once ardent supporter, just gave up!

      Countryfile has gone the same way, and now The Antiques Roadshow is such a pathetic shadow of a once unmissable entertaining programme, there’s not a lot left for anyone to watch and enjoy!

      HIGNFY is just stupid, all their comedy shows are unfunny, anti-British values, and occupied by end-of-pier failures!

      My elderly neighbour wanted me to watch some cellist on TV last night, as she’d heard that the family (bame) were all quite good. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that the last thing I would be doing was seeing anything like that, as it’s the BBC we’re talking about, not anything great and good any more…

      I watched a fabulous Mark Knopfler YouTube instead, and loved every minute of it! Senora O’Blene read most of a good book.

      Am normally at work when it’s on but had a night off.Mrs ND put it on just as they went to that Asian man and I remembered about what people have said on here about the BAME placements in the crowd.My jaw literally dropped to the floor when they then went to the blue haired black lady.

      I noticed another prominently placed ethnic behind that woman with the 40k sapphire.

      Deborah …. I personally think they are plants from the film crew … they’ll have at least 20/30 with all the production managers, under production managers, assistant under production managers et al .. so being BBC … 20 will be BAME.


  2. Nibor says:

    On the internet we have BAME people hating BLM , want law and order , peace , no racism against blacks or whites or anyone , to stop woke idiots talking constantly about race and white privilege , to just get on with their lives , be patriotic and normal .

    On the BBC we have BAME people upset about slavery , want change of everything , fear the police just want to arrest then kill them or fit them up just to avoid the paperwork , hate white privilege , want reparations , cannot relate to any white person so must have % BAME in everything , get Covid because they’re black etc

    The real worlds better than the BBCs world .

      If an over 75 is worried about going ” up before the beak ” because no TVL they could always pay for a Black and White one and its surprisingly still available at £56 , that’s a trick I used to use 30 years ago but now refuse even that option and feel better for it !

        Good old Justin and co. on R4…the Mateless one – you can just hear their negativity over Brexit coming through – not a single word of positivity

        and now Covid in Africa….with everything going on in Europe the BBC go to Africa…and here is a question…
        ‘why is covid less of an issue in Uganda?’ The nurse’s response….”we have access to more organic food (really?) and perhaps we have some immunity” – sorry we keep getting told BAMEs are more susceptible..make your mind up BBC…

        They have a young population seems to be the reason…..so BAMEs are not more affected…just older people with underlying illness..
        So why are the BBC still banging on about mandatory face masks for everyone?

        They are so stupid they can’t see how they make conflicting statements – just intent on knocking the UK and the Tories..

      Wounds of Dutch history expose deep racial divide

      Bronze statues of colonial icons have been spray-painted. Black Lives Matter protests have broken out. And now the Dutch parliament has backed a petition by three teenage women requesting the addition of racism to the school curriculum. Winds of change are swirling around the cobblestones of The Hague. Faced with a strong colonial past and a legacy of slavery, the Dutch are being asked to take a more impartial look at their history. “We’re still a very white nation,” says Mirjam de Bruijn, an anthropologist at Leiden University.

        erm ‘ when will we hear Iran say ‘we are still a very muslim nation’ , or Uganda ‘we are still a very Black nation’ or China,’we are still a very chinese nation’?

        These white apologists are the problem and it seem Universities everywhere are filled with the same numpties


      • tarien says:

        Of course many of you know this little bit of world history-that the indigneous peoples of Africa thousands of years ago were and still are prolific slave traders-trading their own people as they did with the Arab traders-this supply of people sustained much of the Egyptian world, the Roman world, the Persian and eastern worlds and later these traders raided the coast of Europe for slaves and stole people right from their homes and also came to the shores of Britain to do the same. This took place many hundreds of years before the discovery of cotton in the USA. If anything the Black African was a far bigger trader of slaves than it would appear their ancesters now established in America and the West Indies would probably not know or would not recognise this fact-obvioulsy wouldn’t suit their duplictious aims. As it happens Britian was one several others that transported Black and White slaves to America-Spanish, French, Portugese, Dutch, and Italians to name a few. But the Media headed by the BBC would be unlikely to expose such uncomfortable facts.

      • Deborah says:

        Having done my first supermarket shop for months and having chosen not to wear a mask, be assured that being forced to wear one would mean i would do less shopping.
        I can see a concerted effort by the MSM to make us wear them, I assume so they can then scream, ‘why wasn’t this brought in sooner?’


        • AsISeeIt says:

          I’m similarly less likely to want to enter premises that demand face covering.

          I note this morning the government urging people back onto public transport so as to get us back to work – well perhaps they shouldn’t have made masks mandatory on the trains and buses.

          Often repeated here but I regard mask wearing as a badge of fear, of suspicion and of passive aggression.


          • JimS says:

            A population that is ‘socially distanced’ and wears masks becomes a population of ‘hotel dwellers’ – we pay our bill, we receive a service.

            We no longer have communities or are ‘club members’. The people behind masks could be anyone from anywhere. With ‘lockdown’ we no longer even have a ‘family life’, a ‘human right’.

            One could be forgiven for thinking that it is all part of a global Marxist Master Plan to destroy civilisation for good. Just look at those talking with glee about ‘the new normal’, i.e. we won’t be allowed to return to ‘normal’. (‘Normal’ used to mean what most of a group was like, now it is stretched to include the extremes and exclude the old ‘normal’).


            • tarien says:

              A global Marxist Master Plan to destroy civilisation I can quite believe Jim S-subjugation has been going on for years through duplicitous means- the power coming from those that want to have a world order-its now getting nicely into place for that to happen if we are not vigilant as to what is happening. I can only shiver at a win for the USA Democrats-welcome, Bush, both Clintons, with that UK traitor Blair weedling his way in to undermine any resistance the UK put up-Yes Jim there is life but not as we know it.

              A person could say you are exaggerating, its just a piece of cloth, whats your problem with a mask, it will save lives.

              Well, maybe. In March or April.

              Another person could say, well yes, but this is testing the water. We are examining the compliancy of the populace. Will they ‘bend the knee’ to the face mask, could we really introduce an on the spot fine for breathing without due care and attention?

              Yes we can.

              We know we could never police it everywhere, but now we now know we don’t have to, the people will police themselves. Karen will see to it.

              With the results of this experiment noted. What else could we possibly introduce?

              I dunno. Jus saying.

The muddle is getting more muddled day by day-liberal/soiclaism/marxist influence deliberate intrusion to wreck our way of life. Very sad such attention is given, to this destructive policy.

    • tarien says:

      These are just a few of the questions running around many people’s minds when it comes to the voluntary wearing of masks. In some countries and environments in which a face covering of some sort is required in community settings by law, some are choosing to not venture out much at all – creating new and unknown indirect social and health consequences.
      For a quick heads up, the science isn’t certain or robust enough to provide definitive answers to any of these questions – that’s part of the reason there’s such a variety of opinions.
      Do masks or face coverings protect those in proximity of the wearer?

      Probably, but only if the mask or covering is relatively fresh, and mainly in the event of aerosols being generated during coughing or sneezing or when speaking.Previous Certain studies indicate that a range of masks provide some protection against infection. Medical masks provided the highest protection with homemade cloth masks providing the least protection. Does the wearer benefit? marginally, in best case scenarios. Facial coverings or masks may provide limited protection against the inhalation of infectious droplets from others, although evidence in this area is weak and sometimes inconclusive. Much depends on the quality of the mask, and its filtration capacity. Are there any benefits in mandating the wearing of masks or face coverings in community settings?
      In our view, no. The mandating of mask wearing has its roots in fears over transmission of the virus from asymptomatic carriers. However, this transmission route has been plunged into debate by the head of the World Health Organization’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit, Dr Maria Van Kerkhove during a recent press briefing. The science is unclear in this area with research ongoing.
      Masks available to the general public tend not to fit well, aren’t worn or disposed of correctly, with the benefits of homemade face coverings being difficult to quantify. People wearing masks tend to fiddle with them and then touch their faces more – a habit that is associated with increased infection and transmission potential. If face coverings are mandated, it will require diligent adherence to basic hygiene procedures such as hand washing or use of hand sanitisers to ensure that they do not exacerbate transmission. Lastly -Is there a scientific argument to make the wearing of masks or face coverings in community settings compulsory?
      It is thought not. Think about an older person who has low oxygen saturation by virtue of his or her age and additionally has a lung disease such as COPD. That would typically give a blood oxygen saturation level (SpO2) of around 90% which is borderline hypoxic. If this person was forced to wear a mask to take a bus or train ride to do their weekly shopping, the resultant drop in SpO2 could endanger his/her life or those of others – not from the virus but from hypoxia. It would also increase their vulnerability in the event of being infected.
      It also appears that the deaf or hard of hearing that need to lip read to communicate have been completely overlooked. Additionally, the ensuing social isolation from losing an essential element of communication – non-verbal somatic cues from seeing each other’s faces. This is a particularly important element of a child’s development as our neural networks are keyed into facial expressions and somatic cues to convey safety and security, as well as emotional learning. It’s not just about the prevention of transmission, we also have to take into account human physiology and behaviour and the impact to mental health from further social isolation. Makes sense to me.

      Pissed off to become a tax-exile in Monaco as soon as he started to receive substantial emoluments (I won’t call them earnings) from his employers and sponsors; and

      Reportedly demanded an increase in his retainer to £40,000,000 per annum for 2021 and beyond, and at a time when the team he races for will be making staff redundant in order to comply with new F1 budgetary rules (that don’t apply to drivers’ salaries)

  15. Jeff says:

    Billy Bragg has stuck his hideous, reptilian, old head above the parapet again, this time thanks to The Guardian.
    He’s having a pop at George Orwell and tells us that he cringes whenever he walks past Orwell’s statue outside the BBC and reads his famous words, “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” I bet poor old George must be doing cartwheels in his urn…

    Well Billy, I too cringe whenever I have to listen to your puerile political poses, or, even worse, your “singing”. But enough of that…

    He tries to make the claim that what’s been dubbed “cancel culture” is actually a good thing. With quite astonishing Orwellian double-think he puts forward his theory that the young, dispossessed and (supposedly) those without a voice can now be heard and that silencing everyone else is a good thing.

    It really is quite astonishing. Simply because the left-wing bubble dwellers, like Billy, The Guardian and the BBC, consider themselves the bastions of truth, the rest of us must be treated like political heretics. I’m sure if Bragg had been living in the middle ages he’d have been stoking outrage and encouraging the burning of witches.

    It’s not just his intolerance, ignorance and overwhelming arrogance that infuriates me. He has no sense of irony. Can he not see how ludicrous his stance is, particularly when quoting Orwell, a man he says he admires.

    But this man has been a fake from day one. The old fraud claims to love the multicultural vibe of big cities. He’s forever banging on about enrichment and diversity. However, for what ever reasons, he chooses to live as far away from this utopia as is possible, in an exclusively white enclave in Dorset. Not exactly Bethnal Green is it?

    He claims to be a socialist and a man of the people and preaches to us about housing asylum claimants., yet we discover he lives in a sparsely populated, multi-million pound mansion that’s the size of Buckingham Palace.

    Mind you, all these clear hypocrisies aren’t his greatest sin.

    He also claims to be a singer…


    • The WestWyvern says:

      He lives up top the cliffs in a large sprawling pad not far from West Bay in Dorset. Could house lots of immigrants there for sure.

    Close, but no cigar

    BBC: ‘Poland’s incumbent President Andrzej Duda has narrowly beaten challenger Rafal Trzaskowski in Sunday’s presidential vote.’

    You can tell the BBC are not happy about this result because:
    a/ the winner is the conservative
    b/ the big clue is that descriptor ‘narrowly’

    I’m reminded of the spring in the year 2012

    John Pienaar one of the BBC’s finest covered the French Presidential elections and the London Mayoral vote the results coming out within days in early May 2012 and the margins were slim in both cases.

    François Hollande, the Socialist, won in France and Pienaar celebrated his victory as a landslide.

    One Boris Johnson, a Conservative beat a certain Ken Livingstone in London and yet for Pienaar this result was a close run thing.


    • The WestWyvern says:

    Not Al Beeb, but as many here are aware, Sly are just as bad. This morning Kay Bully is badgering Robert Buckland about ‘their’ (ie Sly’s) investigation into modern day slavery.

    Apart from the hectoring, thrice repeated ‘ten years’ referring to the Tories’ tenure, the initial report into slavery in multi-ethnic, sub-continent staffed Leicester was from the Times. I believe Sly and the Times are no longer both owned by Murdoch so why should Bully be allowed to claim, unchallenged, that it was Sly’s expose?

    No comment about likely illegal immigrants, likely non-English speaking, benefit-claiming hordes who are being exploited by, it seems, sweat shop owners of sub-continent origins. Unfettered immigration has been, of course, top of the retain list for ‘liberals’, led by Labour, less extreme (than Labour) Leftoids and Al Beeb.

    Their inability to connect the dots is palpable!

    Victoria Derbyshire just had a chat with Norman Smith about face masks and how confusing it is then read out some messages.

    I’m not going to the shops until it’s mandatory.

    I started wearing a mask when the government said we didn’t need to.

    Nicola Sturgeon and Sadiq Khan are protecting us by saying to wear masks.

    I am confused they are incompetent.

    I’ve just returned from Spain everyone is wearing them there.

    So that’s it then seems everybody wants mandatory mask wearing according to the BBC not one message against it!


    • AsISeeIt says:

      The mask thing is fast becoming emblematic of the lockdown enthusiasts.

      The BBC , Sturgeon etc know that this is the root to lock in the fear and thereby extend the effects of lockdown.

      They are hell bent on preventing normality. Put simply they get off on crisis. They want to further hobble the economy and who knows… delay Brexit, separate Scotland from the UK, oust Boris…?


    • JamesArthur says:

      Funny everyone I know says they will shop less if face mask are made mandatory…seems I don’t know anyone at BBC.

      Out and about few wearing face masks…or wearing them on their chin , head or taking them on an off…all makes them pointless.

      The evidence is now very clear that covid is more like flu than ‘experts’ were saying…and therefore next logical step is we wear face masks forever (well 6 months of the year)…oh and in the process fail to gain normal immunity to other airbourne diseases through contact

    Did the BBC report these words of truth and wisdom from the Leicester slave markets? Immigration….such a boon to us…enriches our economy, environment and culture with its diverse, cheap and striving masses…

    ­‘‘Anyone saying all their staff are on minimum wage in the garment industry is a fraud:’ ‘Sweatshop’ owner of Boohoo factory confesses he pays workers a shocking £4 AN HOUR

    ‘People who come from India or Bulgaria don’t have money, they don’t speak English but they need money to put food in their bellies,’ he said. ‘The starting point is £4 or £5, then we train them and they get more.

    ‘We pay the minimum wage but not to everybody. Unless you’re a big company it’s not realistic in this industry where the margins keep getting squeezed.

    ‘Boohoo is the company that gives us our bread and butter. They are a blessing because without them everyone would go to China and get them made cheaper.’’

    Old social media posts written by Black Lives Matter co-founder Toronto Yusra Khogali are making the rounds this week.

    Yusra Khogali in 2016 wrote “white people are a genetic defect of blackness” in a since-deleted Facebook post.

    “Whiteness is not humxness,” Khogali wrote in a Facebook post. “in fact, white skin is sub-humxn.”

    “White ppl are recessive genetic defects. this is factual,” she said. “white ppl need white supremacy as a mechanism to protect their survival as a people because all they can do is produce themselves. black ppl simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to.”

      The BBC have been teaching British children and British youth how to be socio-political activists for years:

      Some examples:

      Teenage climate activist: “We have the biggest stake in our future.”

      How to change the world – with teen activist Marley Dias: – Aged 10, Marley Dias began a campaign to collect a thousand books featuring black girls as lead characters. Now 14, she’s written her own book about how to change the world.

      Series 1: Generation Activism: – The world in 2018 faces huge challenges – from climate change and gender inequality to youth violence and political instability – and more and more young people are willing to stand up and make a difference by fighting for their rights and for their beliefs.

    • pugnazious says:

      Perhaps more should be done to break the BBC’s dominance, the Left’s dominance, of the Media and their ability to control what is perceived as moral or immoral, right and wrong, racist or just sensible control of immigration.

      The BBC is well versed in the tactics…it is of course the dominant and omnipresent broadcaster which can control the narrative…thus controlling everything as others are too afraid to go against what the BBC puts out there as the defining, orthodox narrative or else be labelled far-right or racist…..it may be complete rubbish and only the view of a very small group but because the BBC supports it, not allowing criticism or any other views, it is perceived as the only legitimate view possible….it becomes reality…..this is the tactic these groups, as shown in StewGreen’s video, adopt……

      From ‘Swarmwise’…a tactical manual to change the world…

      ‘If you can shape perception,you can also shape reality.

      A lot of people in general want to be on the winning team in most contexts and will adapt their behavior to match it. Therefore, if you can make your swarm look like the winning team, regardless of your actual strength, 90 percent of your work is done. In marketing, this principle is based on the mantra that “perception is reality”— in other words, what’s real is what we perceive to be real. But the mechanisms go beyond that idea; perception also shapes reality.’

      Also of interest is this….

      ‘OWNING YOUR ISSUE IN OLDMEDIAA key concept in dealing with oldmedia is “owning the issue.” Basi-cally, it means that your swarm needs to be so tightly associatedwith the issues you drive or things you sell that whenever oldmediacome across a story on the topic, they call you for comments.’

      Recognise that? The BBC falls for it, either naively or willingly, and frequently has its ‘goto’ sources for comment…meaning of course that we only get one side of any argument…..and it becomes the default ‘correct’ position….just as Katya Adler woud always make the EU’s opinions the correct, default position and the British view intransigent, stupid and foolish.

      Maybe the BBC will try harder to look around for more sources and views…not just far-left NHS campaigners for instance.

    “Defund the BBC” is getting great coverage, thanks to Guido Fawkes:


    I would normally only copy and paste a couple of relevant paragraphs so that readers can have a flavour of the article first, but since this is sponsored content, I hardly think Defund the BBC would mind if I reproduced it in full:

    The campaign group Defund the BBC is ramping up its activity after the Beeb confirmed three million more households will be forced to pay for a licence fee from next month. They are appealing for funds via a Go Fund Me Page, which Guido readers can find here, so they can keep the pressure on the government, just as reports suggest decriminalisation of non-payment of the fee is “on the agenda”.

    The BBC ignored their promise to former Chancellor George Osborne when they moved to target the elderly, meaning over-75s could now be jailed for not funding them. Defund The BBC is now the largest group pushing to end the BBC’s stranglehold over UK media, after recently assembling an experienced campaign team.

    Successive governments have backed away from confrontation with the BBC at the last minute and the vital movement is looking to seize the moment and make sure Boris does not back down.

    The BBC has said decriminalisation could cost them up to £1 billion over five years as many viewers, tired of their content and perceived bias, are expected to cancel licence fees en masse. It would be a huge boost for other news providers and public service broadcasters, who do not threaten to send grannies to jail, and will hopefully bring about fairness in the media and greater balance on our TVs.

      I think it’s really great that our combined campaign is getting more ‘traction ‘ – as I think they say – I fear it will be a long campaign and those expecting any change is the way the BBC does things will get more frustrated across the coming years upto the charter review –

      But with a bit of effort there won’t be any more charters and the BBC can place itself fairly with its competitors . If it’s any good it will flourish – if not – it will die and it’s products taken over but better broadcasters . Obviously I want the latter ….

      … in fact I’d put the BBC on A ‘be ended ‘ now list but that’s not realistic in the current climate – even with an 80 seat majority . At least we should get rid of thousands of poor devils being dragged onto magistrates court because they didn’t pay for the BBC ….

    A week ago a bus driver in France was murdered by a gang of 4 ‘hommes’.

    The story got a passing mention on Al-beeb, with the emphasis on the marginal issue of masks on public transport, and no clue as to the identity of the attackers.

    A cursory search on French social media revealed their names to be Mohamed C., Mohammed A., Moussa B. and Sélim Z.

    (In France it’s customary to reveal suspects first names.)

    The tragic event raises many issues.

    – The BBC’s complete lack of curiosity to investigate the story at all. Clearly they knew the names and dropped it like a hot potato.

    – Imagine the international furore if 4 white men had a attacked a North African bus driver. Front page news on the beeb, riots and demonstrations, and we’d all be bending the knee so far back it would be up our arse. But as we know, White Lives Don’t Matter.

    – The story also reveals the extent and the ruthlessness of the cover-up to keep the names secret even in France, where none of the msm reported them.

    – The French public, however, are wise to the devious tactics of their authorities, police and media, and immediately came to the correct conclusion that ‘Maghrebins’ were involved.

    – Social media and comments reveal an intense fury at this latest murder, there having been a number of them in the days preceding the Bayonne attack.

    For example comments in a Figaro report are incandescent and openly mock the pathetic attempts to hide the facts.

    This will all end badly. Sooner or later the seething resentment and mistrust against government, police and media will explode.
    And the French love their revolutions.

      I vaguely recall Labour demanding some cost-analysis procedure for every new government policy. In terms, not of cash, but of race or social mobility or some such.

      How about conservatives start to demand general economic and tax cost analysis of new regulations?

      My mind refers back to that movie from a few years back – Shallow Grave and for me the classic line “But what has it cost us?”
