    Guardian ‘Yeh over there are a bunch of nutters who’ll believe anything with just the weakest of evidence
    not like us at the Guardian we are SUPERIOR’

    FFS they tweeted this extraordinary claim about the AZ vaccine
    Did they have extraordinary evidence ?
    No they had cack.
    Of course the vaccine efficacy is not 8%

    Texas AG tweets
    “Texas is the FIRST state in the nation to bring a lawsuit against the Biden Admin.
    ……. AND WE WON.
    Within 6 days of Biden’s inauguration, Texas has HALTED his illegal deportation freeze.

    I suspect the Dems have another trick

    9am Radio4 MoL might actually be useful
    – David Spiegelhalter about people dying cos of not seeking medical help out of fear that hospitals might be dangerous.
    – Where are people catching Covid given that we are in lockdown ?
    – Data on drug deaths in Scotland has been called into question on social media.
    – Venomous snakes inspire plan to increase the number of people self-isolating

    Front page news on the BBC:
    ‘Elliot Page: Canada’s Juno star to divorce Emma Portner’ after only 3 years of marriage.
    WTF is that doing on the front page of the taxpayer funded BBC I wondered. Who gives a damn about 2 actors not even from this country and a film 14 years old ?. Showbiz people split up on a very, very regular basis because they such horrible people.
    Ah – he’s just come out as transgender. And apparently his wife is very happy and supportive about it. But they are still getting divorced.
    At least we can say that the BBC sticks to it’s priorities. Trouble is, they are completely different from those who pay for them.

    \\“Climate change: Biggest global poll supports ‘global emergency’//
    “Despite the pandemic, almost two thirds of people around the world now view climate change as a global emergency.”

    We have a new “despite”. This time “pandemic” replaces “Brexit”.
    On a positive note the kids in taffland experienced snow this year “despite” Climate Change.


  9. taffman says:

    “ Covid: Archbishops call for daily prayer after 100,000 UK deaths”
    Did they all die because of Covid or with Covid ?

    Trump, Trump, Trump – ALWAYS BAD


    Trump impeachment: Why convicting him just got a lot harder

    bbc “reporting” – should he be convicted then?????????


    • digg says:

      Zurcher has been like a stalker to Trump for the last 4 years so this is no surprise coming from him.

      I don’t think he has yet found another agenda to push.


    • Banania says:

      They mostly died of other things but tested positive for the flu. Strange how many pictures of the victims show people who almost certainly did not die of it, being too young and fit to be susceptible. Why do they want us to believe lots of young people died of it. And watch out! the new mutants are going especially after the young and previously virtually immune.

    Hana, 23, is the ex-girlfriend of London rapper Octavian, the winner of BBC Music’s Sound of 2019 award

    bbc do know how to reward the wrong people, obviously Hana said it happened, and the beeb agree

    It’s been a while – years? – since I posted on here. Then I saw this:


    Oh and the Archbishop of Canterbury has said that we should remember the victims of covid.

    Or as the lunchtime news on Radio 4 just announced:

    “Muslim leaders have supported the Archbishop of Canterbury’s call to remember the victims of covid…”

    : – (

    BBC R4 just had an interview with a lady “educator” who claimed that teachers at home are “exhausted” because of the school lock-downs.

    I have to ask, why would they be exhausted, surely it must be more like the summer hols?

    Right now R4 asking the question should the UK hand over some of it’s AZ vaccine production to the EU in the interests of keeping them sweet!

    We have been doing that with the EU for the last 47 years ffs!
