Start the Week Thread 23 November 2020

Isn’t it Great? Many on this site despair at not being able to change the Far Left Biased BBC sooner rather than later . But the behaviour of the BBC is now exposing the madness . Last month it was censoring “land of Hope and Glory “ at the Proms . Now it has censored a Christmas pop tune . Even the least attentive taxpayer reading this stuff in the papers must be starting to realise the BBC is no longer fit for purpose.

39 days to full Brexit ?

    This might make things awks at the BBC American BS Xmas drinks if they invite Andrew and their CNN buddies.

    Maybe Marianna can check the guest list?

    Hi all,

    Anyone fancy a beer?


    • Fedup2 says:

      Hello Dover – where u been?


      • Dover Sentry says:

        Hi Fed,

        Trapped in a Wetherspoons during this lock down. Only just now managed to tunnel my way outside.

        Don’t like the look of the world.

        Crawling back for an early pint.



        • Scroblene says:

          Dover, dear Fruit!

          Good to see you back in harness, where you belong!

          That Guido yarn was a bit of fun, eh?


          • Fedup2 says:

            Yes – Dover – so Wetherspoons granted you bail ? I’m trapped overseas – month number 2 and back mid December – I could come back but £600 for a flight which should be £50 – no way .Jose Marineo …

    Explained concisely.

    Jenna Ellis: The Presidents team are focusing solely on the physical fraud of the ballots at elections. Sidney Powell is focusing on the Dominion computer elements of the fraud, including software etc and the company which has almost disappeared.


    • Fedup2 says:

      To add a bit of cheer to right wingers – the NEC of the Labour Party has split between comrade Corbyn and comrade Starmer supporters – I’m sure who would win if they had a postal vote …..


    • Doublethinker says:

      Encouraging. We should remember that President Trump has appointed about fifty senior judges in the past four years and if they hear the case they may actually apply the law to it rather than the usual liberal politics which so many judges in the US are prone to do. Still I’m not letting my hopes rise too much because the forces ranged against the President are formidable and have always succeeded in the past. The only time that they have failed was 2016 and they know that if they fail again they will be in prison during Tump’s second term with long sentences. So they have nothing to lose and will do anything to stop Trump and save their skins.

    It is estimated that as many as a half of one per cent of
    the population of the UK is transgender , around 300 to 400,000
    good people. It must be hard for you to work out what sex
    you are, or want to be. And I have the greatest respect for
    folk wishing to identify their sexuality.
    The BBC with its number one agenda of diversity and what they
    call ” positive discrimination” have a self identified work
    force of around 2% who confess to being transgender. That’s
    also OK by me.
    What is not ok is for the BBC to make transgender issues
    one of their main priorities . They seem to have made this
    a default position with great prominence , day after day after
    day on their website.
    Finland is apparently the most “progressive ” country in
    the world . With the most senior positions in government
    filled by women. I don’t know if they were originally men. There
    is legislation that says you can say whatever sex you want to
    be. How do I know this? Of course by reading it on the
    BBC website where it is a major topic. As it is day after day.
    To be honest how the Finns run their country and their
    “inclusiveness” has nothing to do with me. As long as
    the progressives at the BBC and in Finland don’t for one
    reason or another decide to cancel Jean Sibelius because he
    was a white heterosexual man who loved the good life including
    some of the vices . That would not be OK by me.

      Have no fear. It’ll all sort itself out when the communists/Marxists take over. They’ll drop the efforts to introduce and perpetrate these illusions because, simply, they don’t believe them anyway and their usefulness has, for their purposes, evaporated. In fact, they will then have the reciprocal problem of de-radicalising the adherents to the nonsense you describe. Luckily for them, and on the basis of the very small number involved, I would suggest that they incarcerate the numbers needing de-radicalising in a manner similar in form to what, ‘Communist Central’ (Beijing) does with them: Set up camps to de-radicalise muslims. Alternatively, the numbers involved being very small, apply the long standing chinese / communist remedy – kill them.

    I read somewhere on here today recommending “cat and cucumber” video on youtube (cannot find the reference now) but it does raise a smile watching a cat jump when it sees a cucumber for whatever reason.

    But I tried it at Darcy Towers just now and the cat did not bat an eyelid..

    Off to Pets at Home now to get a pit viper, see if that works, it should make for an amusing video

    If I get enough hits I may try a King Cobra or Goliath Tarantula next, the possibilities are endless

    I recall a friend arriving at the door once with his new Weimeramer dog, it was like Tom and Jerry in our house for 5 minutes, the dog did not even enter the house, I never realised cats could actually hang upside down from the ceiling.


  7. StewGreen says:

    How the BBC & government spend your money ?

    BBC sits with its spliff and compiles a list of women and calls that “news”

    The DCMS turn that “news” into PR tweets for their minister


  8. AsISeeIt says:

    So many questions about the supposed efficacy of this 90% effective vaccine.

    So that’s a 10% failure rate. Are they testing on human patients and of those guinea pigs they must have exposed to the infection we must dedeuce 10% still caught it?

    Or are they doing all this in a test tube?

    Assuming they are using real human patients with a 10% chance of a dose of Covid that will have to be deliberately administered – then the medics overseeing these tests either a) excuse their exposing their test subjects for the reason they can’t really believe the virus is as deadly as they routinely portray it to the general public – or b) their experiments are ethically akin to something the Japanese might have done during the war. (Our teutonic european neighbours already deservedly get a lot of bad press for their inhumane medical experiments. The Japanese were at it as well. Mainly experimenting on the Chinese – ironically enough).


    • G says:


      “Or are they doing all this in a test tube?”

      In vitro, Ivermectin proven to kill off 100% Covid-19.


    • Doublethinker says:

      It was a phase three standard pharmaceutical trial involving several tens of thousands of volunteers who were vaccinated , using several different dosage protocols , and then exposed to Covid. 70 to 90% of them did not catch it. There would have been a control group who were injected with something harmless but not the vaccine and then exposed to Covid. I assume that a high proportion of them caught it.
      At an efficacy rate of 70% plus the virus will soon be homeless and die out in six months or so. So that those don’t wish to be vaccinated will be protected in due course . What hasn’t yet been established is how long the vaccine generated immunity lasts. Only time will tell us that, but it appears to be at least three months from the work done to date and is very likely to be much longer than that.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Now that its looking as though republicans are walking away from president trump –

        What have we learnt

        Well for one thing middle east peace ( in any form ) isnt worth squat to american liberals

        That hatred of their president runs so deep .
        Nobel peace prize ? No chance


  9. Dobyns says:

    Never to be reported by al beeb

    Some have observed this never would have happened if it were BLM or XR involved


  10. Guest Who says:


    Defensive much?


    • Guest Who says:

      Intrigued what American Beauty thinks he will do?

      Call in the mob?

      Get Marianna checking Montie’s taxes?


  11. Guest Who says:

    Dominic Casciani is ‘reporting’. That… is all you need to know.

    “Shamima Begum ran away to Syria as a 15-year-old to join the self-proclaimed Islamic State. But when the terror group was defeated, she ended up in a refugee camp in Syria. The UK Supreme Court is currently deciding how her case should be handled, with huge implications on how similar cases are dealt with in the future.”


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      I’ll make a prediction that the judges will let her back in.

      The Home Secretary took away her British citizenship on the rather spurious grounds that she “could” claim Bangladeshi citizenship through her father. But she has never been a Bangladeshi citizen, and the Bangladeshis, not unnaturally, do not want her.

      So she’ll be coming back here. I hope I’m wrong, but does anyone really think the judges will not back her case?


      • Fedup2 says:

        Rob – yes she’ll get a free ticket . The problem will be a unanimous finding with one judgement . Once upon a time there would be at least one dissenter – and that judgement would be as good a guide as the majority .

        But since Blair turned it into a ‘political ‘Supreme Court it has devalued itself – with biased old dear wearing a spider broach …


        • Darcy3 says:

          It will probably end up a new bloody game show:

          “I’m a Terrorist Get Me Out of Here”

          or something

          And they will have their own version of Countdown and 3 2 1 when they get back

    Nice bit of fake news here…

    Viral Thanksgiving grandma’s bittersweet reunion

    White lady has invited a black man around for Thanksgiving for last 4 years – tick!
    Her husband died of Covid – tick!

    At 1m18s the fake story falls apart as the captions use past tense to say the black man said grace this year, instead of her husband, but Thanksgiving is this Thursday.

    The article is just 12 hours old so it looks like the BBC posted this fake article a few days too early.

    Edit: watching it again a caption does say “they decided to have an early Thanksgiving dinner”. Was that specifically for the film crew?!?


  13. Eddy Booth says:

    Don’t go to work when sick, ‘peculiar’ Brits told
    Matt Hancock said
    “Why in Britain do we think it’s acceptable to soldier on and go into work if you have flu symptoms or a runny nose, thus making your colleagues ill?”

    Err… often because you have allowed employers to employ staff on zero hours contracts, who simply won’t get paid if they don’t turn up, and may not even get offered any future work.
    Don’t I expect the BBC to understand this either..

    Headlines you won’t see:
    Don’t come to Britain when you’ve got TB ‘peculiar’ Somalians told.


  14. StewGreen says:

    ITV local news “what do you think of the new Xmas rules ?”
    And off they go to an interview of the fat woman whose fat wife died of it
    … Emotional blackmail laid on thick.

    Now the female Bishop of Hull.

    Do I have to ? Have I got to hire these families ? I don’t understand …. meanwhile Wednesday is Richie sunack s big day – and by the end of it footballers will be popping up with ways to spend taxpayers ‘ money . I think there should be a special income tax level for them and those prem clubs –


  17. Eddy Booth says:

    “The Queen’s Gambit: Meet the real life women chess stars”
    BBC coving the lattest Netflix drama, a mini series about a female chess player.
    Kind of missing the point asking if the main character struggling with drug addiction was typical in the chess world.
    The girl in the story got her habit from been tranquilized in an orphanage..


  18. Fedup2 says:

    Someone called Ed Power has done an assessment of Christmas terrestrial TV – which might save people wasting their money again – on the traditional Christmas Radio Times .

    Even the traditional Christmas Top of The Pops has gone – not even a cut and paste repeat thing with any reference to their Favourite son “Jim” deleted ….

    ….apparently Christmas Day has a drama about a nun questioning her faith and sexuality – which should go down well after the Elizabeth Battenburg Windsor show ….

    Good to see the BBC digging it’s own grave …


  19. Northern Voter says:

    I saw in the papers somewhere today, Andy Murray’s mother, you know the one that got the job with the Tennis authorities on the strength of her coaching abilities, and then went dancing on a Saturday night, that one, well she is saying that the Black and Brown broadcaster, should have a prize for the female sports personality of the year as it has been won by a man for the last 13 years. For ferks sake where do you draw the line? They could have a lesbian sports personality, a gay sports personality, a tyranny sports personality (that South African 800 metre runner would tick numerous boxes), a black sports personality, an asian sports personality, mixed race the list goes on. Scrap the BBC


  20. Jeff says:

    The contemptible Channel 4 news are giving the covid panic the full works tonight.
    Firstly we had poor old Joan Bakewell, now in her dotage, but once regarded as “the thinking man’s crumpet”. She was enthusing about how inventive we’ve all been during lockdown. “I saw a family meeting up the other day” she trilled “and they used a plastic sheet so that they could hug each other.” She clearly thought it was wonderful, whereas I thought it sounded absolutely ghastly and that the people involved should have been carted off to the local loonie bin… She went on to warn us about how we should “celebrate” Christmas this year. Thanks Joan, but I’m not hugging my family through a plastic sheet. You can shove that idea where the sun don’t shine…

    Then they immediately switched to some mournful talking head who informed us that Christmas get-togethers would see the cases soar. You know, I’d been in quite an upbeat mood until I turned the bloody news on…

    Within the blink of an eye they were feasting like vultures on the tragic story of a young lad, Fezhan Jamil, who at only ten years old, “Is one of the youngest victims of covid.” However, it was clear for all to see that the poor boy had a myriad of other complaints and was a regular attendee at the hospital. There was no attempt to inform us of this poor kid’s other ailments, just that he’d become another victim of the plague.

    You know, they won’t be happy until we’re all cowering in covid bunkers, hugging each other through plastic sheets and celebrating Christmas in hermetically sealed isolation cells.

    Channel 4 news are an absolute disgrace…


    • Fedup2 says:

      But Jeff – surely c4 news has always been a self loving organism of the Left …. ? As for the child – was there any suggestion that he became infected via the NHS ? I’m guessing the answer is ‘no’….
      I assume that Mr Snow gave full coverage of the schism in the NEC of the Labour Party which – if we are lucky – will cause a full split …..


  21. Northern Voter says:

    Just watched Macron on France 24, he’s opened up the cinemas, theatres, museums etc, from 28th November, however he’s leaving pubs, and restaurants closed until the new year. A landlady here posted in a minute, she can go to the above for culture but not to the pub for a drink or a meal. I suppose it’s what kind of culture you get.

    Shamima Begum : 2:30pm Alan Duncan described as ex army now filmmaker was on TalkRadio
    Totally different take from Guardianland views

    – Northern Syria’s Kurdish dominated independent admin controls lots of internment camps, NOT refugee camps
    where there are thousands of western ISIS families
    One camp has 65,000, another has 4,000
    – Sweden has already agreed that people will be tried in Northern Syria : Duncan says that murder must be tried in front of the families of victims etc.
    – A British woman Samia Hussein escaped and came back to Britain and is walking free
    – They all got ISIS salaries
    – The Westerners were always hardcore
    – The locals often just got roped in by tribal leaders
    – Duncan’s opinion was that Shamima Begum and husband are hardcore ISIS , don’t give me this “just 16” stuff
    .. Duncan’s videos

    I’m a Celebrity : no one mentioned Victoria Derbyshire is in the ITV show
