      Or socialism as it’s sometimes called.

      Last time I saw that logo it was on the side of a Toyota whose driver was making friends with a local.


      • StewGreen says:

        For anyone not aquainted
        ..when you are in an African town, you know the location of the most expensive bar , where all the prostitutes hang out, from the UN Toyota Land Cruisers parked outside.


    • digg says:

      I have long believed that the UN is simply a Marxist political organisation dedicated to feathering it’s own nest by posing as an independent, unbiased World force.

      This tweet demonstrates exactly what they are really up to, that is trying to divide society and indoctrinate as many people as possible into believing that they are oppressed and that the UN is their saviour and thereby garner their support and approval.

      An age-old left-wing socialist trick turned to global political ends.

      They know that vast swathes of the Worlds population are ready to be primed with this ammunition.

      The UN are probably the most dangerous organisation on the planet attracting staff from the most activist left-wing sections of society and will eventually actually cause Global conflict and then pretend to come riding to the rescue as long as they are then handed total global control to “prevent it happening again”.

      No wonder they hate Trump and vice-versa.

      Overdue time to #DefundTheUN.

    Punishment Policing : Saturday in Sheffield Piers Corbyn again arrested
    held for the 24 hour limit


    • Oldspeaker says:

      labour may well have voted for the wrong Miliband, they definitely voted for the wrong Corbyn.


    • Dave S says:

      South Yorkshire police again .


    • john in cheshire says:

      The police throughout the British Isles have got the “make the process be the punishment”down to a fine art.

      And it needs to be stopped.

      I’m sure in the olden days, justice was meant to be swift, not a long drawn out and expensive means of torture.


  3. vlad says:

    Any updates on the mostly peaceful killer in Birmingham?

    I wonder what his name was, and whether his religion commands him to kill infidels. And whether it’s just another coincidence the attacks took place near the gay area. And why the police were so sure so quickly that it wasn’t a terror attack? And just what exactly constitutes a terror attack?

    Just asking.

      Vlad – I think they’ll do a ‘mental health’ job to prevent publication of the details – apart from’ local man ‘ . That’s plod woke procedure now

      Oddly I have noticed in passing references from the Fail to a shooting in a school, but little else.

      Will check once I have a mo.


    • john in cheshire says:

      And are the Marxist MSM using the Ipswich and Southampton incidents to mask the Birmingham murder and serious injuries by an ethnic?

      I think it looks that way.


  4. vlad says:

    While anyone with half a brain and access to YouTube can see the explosion of violence in (mostly Democrat) US cities, the lying BBC decides to ‘fact-check’ the claim a’ la Pravda, and comes to the conclusion that nothing to see here, no increase in crime, or if there is it’s because of Covid, or summer, or something – look it’s all a bit complicated, don’t worry your little heads about it, and definitely not Antifa – BLM.

    Oh, and Orange Man Bad.


  5. Dazed and Confused says:

    The BBC staff are truly relentless in their poisonous hatred, of anyone that isn’t the militant left..


  6. Fedup2 says:

    Good test for the new DG – she’s presumably a two bottle of red girl before she hits the twitter but she is due for a non BBC job . Might be one for the US secret service if it is death threats against an American President ….

      They’re buqqers, those roof boxes!

      You can’t get a signal on your Iphone, even to ring Jon Hunt to tell him you’re on your way!

      Plod turns up, give him a gentle hand down, pose for pics with the BBC, and help him into a waiting limo to be taken to a luxury hotel for a month, so that they can assess which hospital he’s qualified to work in as a doctor.

      Well done BBC – you really are on the ball these days!


    • john in cheshire says:

      Is this a real incident? It feels fake to me.


  9. richard D says:

    While I’m here….. I really do wish the BBC would stop this ‘faux confusion’ they keep prattling on about… classic example was the other morning when a Beeboid newsareader kept asking his interviewee whether he was confused about everything (same as they did a couple of weeks ago). At the time, it was as simple as could be – for people returning to the UK from a specific country, there was one rule for those who lived in England and Northern Ireland, and a different rule for those who lived in a couple of tiny sub-sections of the UK, Scotland and Wales (principally because the leaders of these two parts of the UK can’t abide doing anything in concert with the rest of the UK because of their petty nationalistic pandering to their knuckle-dragging supporters). It was really very simple, but the BBC is determined to hang the ‘confused’ label on anything and everything – for their own political purposes.

    Listen, Beboids – if you are stupid enough to be confused about the simplest of things, you really do NOT deserve the bunce the poor licence payers of this country are being forced to pay for your services.

    Morons ! (Sorry – Left-wing Political Activists, which amounts to the same thing, really.)

    More Top Stories on the BBC Homepage:

    1) Promoting a famous American female singer
    2) Promoting a female run agency that provides disabled models for high end fashion companies
    3) Promoting a Canadian drag Queen – this is filed under children’s education

    Somewhere out there is real news relevant to the everyday lives of British People but sadly the BBC is not interested in that. For the BBC it is all about Celebrities, Drag Queens, the Woke Agenda, Black Lives Matter etc.


  11. StewGreen says:

    ITV local opening item
    narrative : ‘The Tories aren’t making a good job of “levelling up the North” ‘

    Amazing insights like
    “areas with enhanced lockdown aren’t recovering as fast”

    .. oh look now they’ve got a deaf girl who looks lesbian going on about diversity.

    actually the topic does seem initiated by a Tory PR statement.


  12. Jeff says:

    Well, the mists are beginning to clear…
    It was obvious from the get-go that both the police and the BBC were incredibly reluctant to offer us any way of identifying the brute who stabbed all those folk on a night out.
    Because of that I was pretty sure that the Brummie knifeman wasn’t likely to be answering to the name of Stephen Yaxley Lennon.
    Nor did it seem feasible that he would have links any to far right organisations.
    From the descriptions offered by the police they could have been searching for Father Christmas or the tooth fairy for all we knew.

    It’s a sad state of affairs when you can’t trust the police or the media, but that’s where we are unfortunately.

    When these atrocities occur the establishment like to drip feed the bad news.
    Remember the Muslim nutter who attacked pedestrians and cyclists outside Parliament a couple of years ago. For a solid fortnight the BBC insisted in referring to this potential massacre as “an incident with a car…” Sounds like someone’s scratched your bumper, doesn’t it?

    The BBC are desperately hoping for some other event to happen so that they can “bury the bad news”.
    After the carnage in Reading it was some bloke who flew a banner saying “WHITE LIVES MATTER”. The media were in uproar. This single act of resistance received far more coverage and condemnation than the murders ever did.

    I wonder what they’ll use this time…

  14. BRISSLES says:

    Picture in today’s D/Mail on page 30 (sorry cant find it online), but the headline is Hair-trigger US, showing the march of Black Panther style group NFAC in Louisville, Kentucky carrying assault rifles. Quite a disconcerting picture. It reminded me immediately of the horseback mounted army in Planet of the Apes. Not to be outdone they were faced with another group of white militia protesters, also carrying assault rifles.

    Anyone fancy a holiday in America ? I bet Harry wishes he could escape the fires, the virus, and the gun totin’ riots …… oh yeah, we have those too, best stay where you are old son.


  15. theleftwilleatitself says:

    Are people on here aware that al beeb via newsbeat are telling us that Ethan Peters, aka Ethan the Supreme died very recently aged 17 ????
    Now any death especially at that age is terrible but you only have to look at the picture offered up from them that the person was ‘their sort of person’ ????????
    I can’t find the person on Wikipedia and apologies for no link but considering hardly any youngsters watch or follow al beeb’s tripe, who is going to click on this ????
    And I just read the headline!

    An enormous temperature plunge by anyones measure from 97F on Monday at 3pm down to just 20F by 7am Tuesday morning!

    Sudden plunges in temperature are normal for the USA, but not this dramatic and not this early with Winter like conditions for what is still late Summer, and it’s not just Denver experiencing the cold, it’s the whole US with the mass of freezing air moving South to cover the whole country. 3 to 6 inches of snow forecast in some places too, just watch the video with the forecaster at the top of the page.

    Odd though because with the record setting conditions, the BBC doesn’t appear to even have a mention of it on their web site.

    The BBC running with an update on the Birmingham knife attacks.

    No mention or description or in fact any info at all yet on the apprehended killer but they did manage to get a bit of video of a “dusky” gentleman who claims to have chased the knifeman so all’s fine and dandy in BBC land again.


    • Halifax says:

      Nothing to worry about just another migrant killing the people of this country… many is that this year and i wonder what the percentage is? I imagine its very very high…….anyway the killing is off the BBC news front page. Nothing to see here move on please .

    Fifteen year old shot and seriously wounded on his way to school

    Police have arrested a fifteen year old.
    So no details of the suspect. Assuming the suspect is 15 and not a 27 year old 15.


  26. pugnazious says:

    A BBC HR senior exec caught doing what all BBC presenters do everyday in essence, if not quite so blatant….but will there be any real comeback for her? Seeing as she’s not in news or current affairs surely she is free to tweet whatever she wants?

    You might think with someone like that heading up BBC recruitment that there lies the problem….are you black, gay, disabled, transgender, Muslim, left-wing and can lie with sincerity? If so come on in….male, white, straight, christian, right-leaning….you can just f-off.

    Nick Robinson is clearly feeling the heat as an old white middle-class male…hence his ever-increasing attempts to insult and demonise those the Left all hate…..quite happy to boldly state on Today that the Jews have made Gaza into the world’s biggest and worst open prison, personally I think the blame lies with the terrorists running Gaza and the West Bank…today he peddles the usual BBC mantra about Brexit….voted for by old white racists.

    He set up the scenario claiming that the Tories were obsessed by Australia before sliding that into Brexiteers being obsessed with Australia…..reason why? Because of course the old, white racists harken back to a time when Britain was all white and that’s what they want to return to.

    Problem with all that?….First of course it’s pretty outrageous that he just smears Brexit voters as racists, second Australia is pretty diverse and way beyond being overwhelmingly white, and third….Brexiteers were more likely to want to be a ‘Singapore’ than Australia in terms of a successful model for post-Brexit Britain.

    From the LSE [and endless other news reports of similar ilk]….

    ‘Boris Johnson’s real agenda: The ‘Singapore scenario’’

    Pure BBC lies and smears.



    • StewGreen says:

      Belfield is a bit too gung ho
      He opens by calling the tweet “a death wish”, but slips into calling it a “death THREAT which it isn’t”

      Her words
      “Please just have a massive coronary and die
      before you kill everyone else, you deranged, stupid man.”

      BBC human resources executive #MelanieBriggs called actor Laurence Fox a c*
      & posted a smiling selfie of herself with former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn with the caption ‘JELFIE!!’ & a love heart emoji.


  27. pugnazious says:

    Hurray! She’s gone….but who will replace her? That she’s on Woman’s Hour is no problem….it’s a highly appropriate and suitable place for her….she being a zealous and opinionated feminist who looks only to stir up controversy with her own brand of shock-jockery, fake news and point-scoring gotchary…caught live on air, twice, lying about Covid 19….someone from Govt had to ring in to tell her to stop spreading misinformation.

    The mad, man-hating, embarrassed-to-be-white Woman’s Hour will change little I suspect.

    Did like the Mail’s take…..

    ‘The brothel baron’s daughter taking over Woman’s Hour: Menstruation campaigner Emma Barnett whose father made a fortune from a chain of sex parlours is revealed as new host of BBC Radio 4 show’

    How much of Barnett’s salary does she donate to charities thaat serve to help ‘fallen’ women? She probably owes her education, private, and subsequent career, to the money made by her parents off the backs of these young women and girls being exploited. Barnett often tries to pillory people as ‘immoral’, such as a Brexit supporting MEP getting paid by the EU…isn’t that immoral she declares.


    Walk in the shoes of the women and girls your parents exploited and then talk about how moral you are Emma…or in the shoes of those thousands of girls raped and abused by Muslim gangs….that the BBC covered up for so long…..or maybe those Jews, she’s Jewish herself, who live in fear because of the anti-Semitism BBC reporting on Israel stokes and fuels. Maybe she should ask if she herself is immoral for working for such an organisation that demonises her own people.

    She will of course still be on Newsnight but, like Woman’s Hour, most people will have long ago given up on that, in this case as it’s long been a Labour bunker.

  30. StewGreen says:

    BTW this was on Guardian’s front page this morning
    It told us Birmingham “suspect at large”
    ..if they really wanted their reader to help they would have put his BLACK face there like the other newspapers did.

    As it happens the Guardian is so incompetent, they used a headline which was redundant by the time their readers read it
    cos the police had already arrested the guy before breakfast.



  31. pugnazious says:

    The BBC’s Katya Adler caught out manufacturing a lie….


    A reader complained about a tweet published by the BBC’s Europe Editor Katya Adler in which she used the word “delusional” in connection with Michael Gove. The complainant argued this was inappropriate, as the word was loaded and that it indicated her bias on matters concerning the EU. The ECU assessed the complaint against the requirements of due impartiality set out in the BBC’s published Editorial Guidelines.

    The tweet was prompted by remarks made by Mr Gove to the Commons Committee on the Future Relationship with the European Union in which he stated:

    I think the Covid crisis, in some respects, should concentrate the minds of EU negotiators, enforcing the vital importance of coming to a conclusion.

    In response Ms Adler offered a detailed critique of his argument in a series of tweets, beginning with the following remark:

    Am not first to comment on this today but below observation by Michael Gove that #coronavirus will focus EU minds on post #Brexit trade deal is delusional. It distracts EU leaders all the more from something which was not top of in-tray even before COVID-19’

    So Adler rewrote the statement to say something Gove never said and then used it to try and smear Gove.

    Adler has always been an EU stooge…always presenting the EU’s position as the ‘pragmatic, rational and sensible’ way forward whilst the UK’s was ‘delusional’, asking for unicorns and magic trees, intransigent, unpragmatic and unrealistic.

    She continues literally to this day to use that narrative only this morning, as the BBC went into overdrive telling us that Britain was about to renege on the withdrawal agreement despite admitting the government hadn’t actually said anything [this was from a ‘scoop’ by the remain FT claiming this was going to happen]…Britain, we were told was a ‘rogue nation’ for dumping the treaty……complete and utter rubbish…fabricated tosh and malign speculation designed to undermine people’s view of Brexit.

    Adler’s take was that Britain should do the pragmatic thing and just do whatever the EU demands and stop causing trouble.

      Dellers pointed out that the head of anti-terrorist police had warned about XR being like terrorists
      destabling the economy ..and having methods that wouldn’t end even if you concede to them.

    Could he extend that to the BBC (who love that sort of cr*p)?


    • Broadcasting-on-Behalf-of-the-Caliphate says:

      Trump should also ban feminist theory which enabled all of this. It runs throughout English departments, language departments, humanities, social sciences and it has now infiltrated into the sciences, technology, engineering, medical courses. This was all foreseen in the 1960s when the change began and critics called it “grievance studies”.

    Trump to ban state funding for ‘critical race theory’….a huge story as this theory is behind so much of the race baiting narratives that inform the BBC’s own reporting and provides the momentum and justification for BLM….fuelled and fed by left-wing academics….

    I imagine many people will cheer the news…if they hear of it…the BBC has consigned the story to the archives already despite being of huge importance….whilst they report every little thiing Trump says or tweets when it can be twisted to appear negative they aren’t so keen to report this…and their headline was carefully worded to try and put him in the wrong…..not banning a dangerous and malign ideology but banning ‘diversity’ training…

    ‘Trump bans ‘anti-American’ diversity training’

    If only Boris were like-minded and cracked down on the race crackpots in government, the universities and the BBC.

  42. pugnazious says:

    Remember when David Icke said this a short while ago….quoting actual scientists it should be said….

    ‘This PCR test is useless and flawed, and here we have a scientist in America confirming that. So…

    PCR basically takes a sample of your cells and amplifies any DNA to look for viral sequences, i.e. bits of non-human DNA that seem to match parts of a known viral genome. The problem is the test is known not to work. It uses amplification, which means taking a very, very tiny amount of DNA and growing it exponentially until it can be analyzed. Obviously, any minute contaminations in the sample will also be amplified, leading to potentially gross errors of discovery. Additionally, it is looking for partial viral sequences, not whole genomes. So identifying a single pathogen is next to impossible even if you ignore the other issues.

    These are the tests that are being promoted to sell the figures, the Mickey Mouse tests.’

    He was roundly condemned for spreading conspiracy theories about this and 5G….and for saying that Covid19 was being used by governments for their own purposes….not wrong on that is he?

    Listening to the BBC this morning and we had Prof Carl Heneghan on to cast doubt on testing… sounded familiar….in fact pretty much what Icke was saying…..

    ‘There is rapidly accumulating evidence that the tests used worldwide to identify cases in a binary mode ‘Yes or No’ are being used in a simplistic and uncoordinated way. We have already explained the limits of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to carry out mass testing.

    PCR is a very sensitive test, which means that it detects the smallest fragments of the virus it is looking for by amplifying the sample millions of times. However, a fragment is not a whole virus, capable of replication and of infecting other human beings. It is a small part of the viral structure that the PCR primer is looking for, not the whole microorganism. Only whole viruses can infect us. ‘

    So are the rising ‘cases’ real new infections or people who have had the disease who show ‘positive’ now but only because they have partial fragments of RNA in their bodies?

    So is the rise due to increased testing, false readings or wishful thinking by those who want to keep the lockdown going?

    Will the BBC take this any further? Will they be questioning the figures and the need for a lockdown? Why didn’t they ‘fact check’ the government death figures that were shown to be false….claiming people had died from Covid19 when they had actually died from something else? The BBC’s ‘More or Less’ constantly ‘fact checks’ the testing figures as in numbers done but not whether the testing is actually showing us anything true. Why not? Why wasn’t the BBC interested in challenging the cause of death figures?

    Imposing draconian lockdowns on people, cities, even the whole country at the whim of Matt Hancock as well as the side-lining of Parliament and its scrutiny seems perfectly fine with the BBC….how odd that they objected so venomously and strenuously to Boris’ attempt to prorogue Parliament calling it a massive threat to our democracy but doesn’t utter a word of objection to the wholesale imposition of dictatorship.

    It would appear that the pseudo left-wing XR posers have scored an own goal with their assault on the newspaper industry.

    This suggests the obvious way to handle them. As any Government crack-down will immediately be classified by them as oppression and simply feed their overblown egos, the press should now take their own stand.

    XR only breathes with the oxygen of publicity so attacking the press wouldn’t seem to be the best tactical move.

    The next move should be a press blackout on reporting on their activities at all. Without the spread of information on their stupid and childish antics they would start to wither.

    The hooray henry members who seek personal gratification would drift away whilst the zealots would get even more extreme and end up the wrong side of the law and have to face the consequences.

    They would at very least have to come to realise that the general public are heartily sick of their childish pantomime tantrums.

    I used to go by the axiom that I could hear a BBC news report that might give me the gist of a story but where I sensed there was further spice I would need to access a tabloid if I wanted the names, the inside track, the gory details.

    Whether it was legal fears, prudishness or downright political correctness, the BBC would go coy. Increasingly over the years the PC tendency morphed into a set of strict BBC agendas – but you’ll get the point – tabloids for the griff, BBC for the bowdlerized version.

    I’ll give you an example using the Guardian front page as our standard stand in for the BBC.

    There’s a teaser for a sports story on the Guardian front page today: ‘England stars sent home after breaking Covid rules’

    The Metro, that trashy lefty-leaning celeb-obsessed giveaway, will do the tabloid work for us with its headlines: ‘Why England stars broke quarantine rules’ and the answer dear reader lies with a pair of Scandi stunners: ‘Icelandic girls who hooked up with our aces at team hotel’

    There’s also a delicious example of the naughty journalistic trick of scare quotes, I quote… ‘And the players were ‘perfect gentlemen”

    Forearmed with knowledge of these press tendencies we turn to the papers for news of the Birmingham killing but find the BBC service of providing the front pages of our national papers brings us only one single mention – and that in the Guardian. Editions too early? Relegation to an inside page story? Ours is not to reason why, ours but to do and die…

    The Guardian moves quickly from the event to focus on a victim: ‘Tributes to Birmingham knife victim’ – publishing a pic of a pleasant-looking young chap.

    Riddle me this: Black man knifes a ‘random’ white man – NOT a hate attack say police. White man knifes a ‘random’ black man…? Answers on a postcard, justification on a postage stamp.

    The Guardian’s over-use of the inverted commas and increasingly bizarre doublethink brings us: ‘Robots in care homes to ‘reduce loneliness” The paper’s increasing hysteria leads to: ‘Rise in UK virus cases ‘incredibly worrying” but the Guardianistas can still state in plain text without a snarky scare quote in sight their on-going loyalty to the EU: ‘Brussel’s collapsing trust in PM revealed in leaked EU documents’

    The ‘i’ brings down the mood even further with ”Don’t kill your gran’ Health Secretary’s advice to those young people breaking rules’ – scare quotes designed to scare.

    Sign of the times in the Metro which carries a front page advert: ‘London unlocked! In association with Dettol’ – disinfect all you want but the powers that be are not letting this one go: ‘Public are ‘too relaxed’ about coronovirus’ cautions the Telegraph.

    ‘Who’s walking who?’ asks the ‘i’ – sadly not a political comment but a feature on pets: ‘Why dogs adore us… and have been manipulating us for millennia’ – it’s a dog’s life.

    Asiseeit- thank you for the round up –

    The mindset of plod is evidence similarly to that of the BBC . Very often it’s spotting what it is not saying as much as utterances .

    For instance in the latest ‘one off’stabbing rampage – Reading – Glasgow – never happened … the plod did not give out a description of the killer – unheard of in an ongoing killing spree in thr middle of a city .

    Notice there was no police ‘hero’ in this one and a noticeable absence of police intervention- where were they ?

    Then the head plod comes out with the ‘non hate crime ‘ line .now forgive me – but I’m not sure what a ‘hate crime ‘ is – I’m sure a police committee has spent months drafting a definition but what is a ‘hate crime ‘ in real life ?

    Did the poor Devil who was stabbed in the neck until he died not experience a bit of ‘hate ?’ – so what is the £100k chief plod telling us ? Killing whitee is not ‘hate ‘?

    Next omission – identity of the killer. He has been in custody for over 2 days now and there is not even a ‘named locally ‘ line or some neighbour describing the usual armed police raiding his home . So what’s going on?

    Does this matter ? It does because plod is conditioning us to accept these killings / attacks and move quickly on – go talk about something unimportant like royals selling themselves .

    On other lesser matters – England Footballers – kids with no brain and too much money and adulation – 3 in trouble in the last 10 days . And the way footballers are turning up covid positive maybe we should all worry even more.

    Yet more positively do I detect that although tests and positives are up – deaths are not . Why ? Has the virus changed and we are not being told ? Is it summer weather ? Is it that ‘herd’ immunity thing – they need another term …..

    Meanwhile what are the 1.7 million people who work in the NHS doing – apart from getting 20% off and various freebies ….

      I don’t think there’s anything particularly mysterious about the conduct of the virus.
      When the NHS cleared its wards of elderly sick folk and stuck them back into care homes, the bloody thing had a field day.
      If you’re already sick, obese or have diabetes, then this thing is bloody nasty.

      Remember, these are the “experts” that the government is still listening to. I’m not an expert, but I wouldn’t have done that. It looked like a recipe for disaster. Just as, although I’m not a fireman I wouldn’t choose to keep a can of petrol in the kitchen next to the stove. Very bad idea. Just common sense…

      The virus doesn’t do much harm to the young. We’re testing more people. You’re going to get more positive results. It’s no big deal. The two footballers that have it, didn’t even know they had it. It was a random test. Both have said “I feel fine.”

      Yes, we must protect the vulnerable, no argument. But this quarantining the healthy and the destruction of our economy and freedoms is lunacy.
