      ..of course you do

      4pm R4 agenda was shoved into the book prog

      The voice made the point that
      ‘typically British people reminisce to a time BEFORE Windrush, this is wrong it’s not inclusive’
      She had a dig at Farage as well.
      Minute 21
      Melissa Harrison : writes for the Guardian

        Remember: Black lives matter, yours doesn’t.


      • BRISSLES says:

        …typically British people reminisce to a time BEFORE Windrush…..

        Actually I was just born in 1948, so it doesn’t apply, and the original families of Windrush as a number didn’t make that much of an impact, its the huge and wider families they have created that have in turn created today’s issues.


        • tarien says:

          Yes Brissles, I was born in 42 and although living in London/Middlesex at the time of Windrush, I don’t recall seeing the results of such, only that I do recall seeing my first Black man when I was 8 yrs old, that was before Windrush. It was not until about 1967 on my return from living and working in France that, I became aware of so many black and coloured peopler all over the West End, Oxford Street, Regent Street, everywhere-Muslims by the hundreds. I left living and working in and around London by 1982. My wife and I went back to live in Southern France from 2002 -2009, wish in many ways we had stayed as we had a lovely house with land, loads of friends many nationalities, warm weather, wonderful markets, great food and wines-so what the devil am I doing here in the UK now? It was for our three sons, and family, but these past 11 years have greatly tried my loyalty as a patriot. As said before the UK is in a mess, should never have agreed to allowing the EU to foist Multiculturalism upon us-it does not work in such a country as ours, nevertheless we the Indig Brit is being forced to enfold our selves in this manic piece of propaganda. Have a nice day!!


      • tarien says:

        What a load of absolute tripe from that Harrison female-Stew this is exactly what is so troubling for us indigenous Brits. If the Guardian was closed down, I suppose there would another anti-brit paper ready to come out of its greasy hole.

      The CNN equivalent of Toenails (in more ways than one).

      No wonder the entire BBC American BS hang on his every word.

      Oh who is the presenter on R4 now ?
      Eunice Olumide


    6. StewGreen says:

      Who is presenting the 23:30pm show ?
      “Actor Adjoa Andoh explores our need to see our own identities reflected in the culture and environment that envelop us.
      With readings from work by Jackie Kay and Aminatta Forna and music by Nina Simone, Miriam Makeba and Florence Price.”


    7. Sluff says:

      A new facility.
      A translation service.

      BBC news headline
      ‘University academics predict severe coronavirus consequences when the new term starts.

      Cosseted public sector staff in ivory towers on full pay, generous pensions from massively in deficit scheme, and job security most can only dream of, fear that they might actually have to do some work and are trying scare tactics to get out of that obligation.

      7pm Countryfile ..is not black person
      but rather one of their BBC mates
      \\ Mary Berry Special
      .. reveals how farming and the countryside have influenced her life and career – and still do.
      Matt Baker is by her side to discover what inspired her during her childhood on her parents’ smallholding and the rural issues she holds dear today.
      Mary is a champion of small producers and local produce, but she loves her pigs too.
      Adam Henson is *despatched* (can’t spell BBC ?)
      to investigate the state of British pig farming,
      while Anita visits a school with a field-to-fork ethos.
      This is music to Mary’s ears, and something she would love to see rolled out across more schools across the country.
      And how will Matt fare when he has to cook for the UK’s queen of the kitchen?

      If I wanted cooking I’d watch a cooking show.

      The BBC wish to keep anxiety levels high for the UK: “Flu: Why we still need to worry about it this winter”

      Thanks, BBC.

      But, no thanks.


      • Up2snuff says:

        This year – 2020 – it is earlier than 2016.

        It’s on 3 November.

        It is going to be really, really, really important.



    10. Sluff says:

      There was just one coronavirus death today.

      So the BBC news have gone with University scare and a retrospective on care home deaths.
      And as ever they always, in very big lettering, like to highlight the total deaths, some 41500.

      The s****-stirring agenda is just so barefaced.


    11. Guest Who says:

      All bases covered.

      It’s like the bbc exists only to stir.


    12. G says:

      You only have to watch this Fox News video of an interview with the US Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe to understand that the US law enforcement system and Congress is riddled with chinese Communist spies. They have been allowed to infiltrate every level of US Society.

      Lord knows how DJT will deal with it all when re-elected. I imagine no man in history has previously taken on such a complex and formidable task, certainly since the cessation of the last World War. We all know that the easiest action in the World is to give stuff away like Obama/Bush/Clinton did over the critical years. The most difficult task is to pull it all back in. DJT is the only one with the backbone and foresight to understand what needs to be done. But, what’s going to happen after he vacates the White House in 4/5 years time?


    13. StewGreen says:

      Black Democrat John Deberry’s powerful speech last week
      arguing that today’s protests are peaceful they are anarchy
      .. and that isn’t what MLK and his generation stood for
      Sounds like he should switch to Trump’s party

      “People who are looking at what’s happening in Washington, in Detroit, in Portland and Seattle–they’re getting emboldened because we act like a bunch of punks, too frightened to stand up and protect our own stuff,” Deberry said.
      “You’re telling me that someone got the right to tear down property that Tennessee taxpayers paid for?
      That American taxpayers paid for? And somebody has the right to destroy it, deface it, and tear it down?
      What kind of people have we become that we can’t protect our own stuff?!”

      Deberry continued to lash out at rioters:
      “Peaceful protest ends peacefully. Anarchy ends in chaos. What we see happening right now, any of us with any common sense–any common sense whatsoever–know that what we see is not peaceful. So we can continue to fool ourselves and mix with words and use rhetoric in order to frost this stuff over, and put a nice picture on what we see is frightening.”

      “If we don’t get this right, right now, I’ve got grandchildren–I don’t want to see the country we’re going to have five, ten, fifteen, twenty years from now, if we don’t start acting like we got some guts,” Deberry finished.
      Lawmakers gave Deberry a standing ovation for the speech.

        Why don’t the likes of Mr Neil laud white people for saying these things?


    18. Up2snuff says:

      Now that Boris Johnson is King of the U-Turn as far as the BBC & much of the MSM are concerned, it has got to be time to scrap HS2.

      I wonder what the BBC will say to that?

      The saving of 20 minutes on a trip from London to Birmingham seems totally irrelevant thanks to Covid-19. It must be time to turn the route into a conventional speed line that can carry freight as a priority rather than passengers.

      Come on, PM, you know it makes sense.


      • gb123 says:

        You forget. This is eco Boris. He will change it to a massive cycle track.


      • taffman says:

        Scrap HS2.
        There are much better thing that this money could be spent on.
        Up grade the railway infrastructure , put back the lines that were ripped up in the Beeching era.

        The Royal Navy will need a fleet of fishery protection vessels, get them built now (by British shipbuilders ) before we get ‘more lessons to be learned’ etc etc ……..


    19. taffman says:

      Is Al Beeb hiding something ? I haven’t seen Jacob Rees – Mogg lately ?


    20. StewGreen says:

      Portland Saturday night : Trump supporter shot dead
      long video
      I’d beware of people trying to put words into your head that the video might or might not contain.
      However mace followed by a gun shot does make sense.

      It just seems like a random mad US thing.
      It’s not like the scene is two groups confronting each other.
      It’s like 2 people on opposing sides bump into each other in a not busy not quiet street.


    21. taffman says:

      I hope that when Parliament resumes on Tuesday, the subject of the ‘Rotten Tax’ , that’s the telly Tax, is raised by our ‘tough MPs’ for debate.

      Now the USA has Nish too.


      • Guest Who says:

        Not the BBC, of course.


        • Dave S says:

          When the state claims a monopoly on violence in order to enforce the law and the peace then it has to carry out it’s duties. If it fails as it is clearly doing in Democrat run cities in the US then the result is riot and anarchy and a descent into violence. The blame for this is upon the shoulders of the authorities in the cities affected.
          At every stage the authorities have the option to intervene, When it becomes clear that is not about to happen then the citizens deprived of the protection of the law must create it themselves or perish.
          That is the way it has been for millenia. Only a progressive of today could think things are different.


        • Guest Who says:

          BBC News, and loyal followers.

          President Trump is due to visit the city of Kenosha on Tuesday to meet local police and “survey damage from recent riots”.

      Was that the BBC helo scooting off to get the telephoto before broadcasting them….. all?


    28. JimS says:

      BBC Four (accidently?) created a nice little niche of diverse viewing with its Saturday night foreign-made series, the so-called Scandi Noir, (but eclipsed by the infinitely better French-made Spiral).

      But was it getting too popular? The BBC tried repeating Montalbano over and over again, (and mixing up the episodes to destroy any figment of continuity) but have they finally decided to employ the tool of last resort, over-exposure?

      Seriously, does anyone want to watch four episodes in one sitting of anything? Two episodes of The Bridge is hard enough and the BBC adverts between episodes aren’t long enough to even put the kettle on!

      (Some say it is to drive us all to ‘Ahplayah’, as the BBC BLM pals constantly call it.)

      R4 11am more race baiting coming
      I like the way she has a graphic which says
      “a recent survey says”
      … It’s from 2015, and I expect it to be rigged/cherrypicking
      There are loads of black people working in the media
      cos there’s specialist black media for a start
      I doubt it really is 0.2%

        The impact of all-white newsrooms is explored by Nadine White of The Huffington Post…
