    “MPs row over who controls Wales’ ‘levelling up’ cash”
    This is one of the reasons why the people of Taffland want to see the end of the Assembly .
    It is being run just like a parochial council. It’s a total waste of money.

    Not on Al Beeb yet , but Mr ‘Potato Head’ is going have his knobbly bits cut off .
    The push back against “taking the knee” and de-funding the Telly tax has gained momentum. It’s time to put an end of this absurd Newspeak wokeness. Let us all begin today!

    Before we tackle the hefty and, this morning, the right royal task of parsing the press headlines, let’s alight on a couple of BBC online news headlines that happen to be doing some pretty heavy lifting.

    Like old school thespians our print press tend to avoid mention of the Scottish play, yet the BBC are hoist on their own saltire here and rather have to: ‘Alex Salmond to face Holyrood inquiry amid conspiracy claims‘ – that’s quite a construction, I think you’ll agree. It makes it sound as though Salmond is on trial, rather than being the witness accusing Sturgeon and her acolytes.

    The BBC clearly see their man in a dock rather than as a whistleblower (or should that be a bagpipe blower – the sound promises to be sufficiently shrill and nerve jangling for his enemies): ‘Alex Salmond is to be questioned by MSPs over his claims of a “malicious and concerted” conspiracy against him

    Who could forget that old one hit wonder My Sharona by the Knack? The BBC have a knack of annoying one with their Shamima: ‘The Supreme Court is to rule later whether the runaway schoolgirl Shamima Begum should be allowed back into the UK from Syria‘ – runaway schoolgirl indeed. It makes her traitorous murdering jihadi terrorism sound like a bit of extra-curricular high jinks.

    Speaking of which, the Daily Mail has for us: ‘Women driven mad with lust by a full moon‘ – We read on: ‘Its power to warp our behaviour gave us the word “lunacy”. Now, as a Snow Moon rises, read the stories of women who’ve felt its devastating power, including one wife’s extraordinary admission…‘ – and it’s right there that the Mail online blanks one’s screen as it notices one uses an ad blocker – so we’ll have to leave it there.

    The Telegraph would have us believe: ‘Sunak will be “honest” on spending as he is warned against tax rises‘ – there’s a mess of a headline which I dare say mirrors the mess of the national finances Rishi faces come the budget.

    It’s a sorry state of affairs when a politician feels the need to tell you he’s being honest. How honest is he and his Treasury, for example, with official statistics? Let’s take inflation as a test case.

    BT write to me informing me that CPI (Consumer Price Index) is a mere 0.6%. But BT wern’t born yesterday. They didn’t get where they are today (as Reggie Perrin’s boss CJ would put it) by swallowing official inflation numbers. Oh, no. BT are adding a whopping 3.9% to increase my bills by 4.5% – which amounts to a pretty good ball park measure of real inflation I would venture.

    So supposing he can’t raise taxes it seems Rishi may take a leaf out of Gordon Brown’s book: ‘Sunak’s raid on pensioners‘ (Times)

    We interupt the financial meltdown of the nation to bring you an urgent message from the Palace: ‘Queen says refusing vaccine is selfish‘ (Telegraph); ‘One’s had one’s jab and one’s… as right as reign. So make sure you go and get yours!‘ – quips the Sun; ‘One is not immune‘ – jests the free-at-the-point-of-access yet heavily subsidised with government advertising giveaway Metro.

    I anxiously dream for a moment between sleep and the verge of consciousness this morning that the State is chasing me with a big fat needle, then awake to find it’s true.

    Vaccine passports “will be here by summer”‘ – warns the Times. We assume our Shamima is getting hers stamped up, even as we read our papers this morning. Read on and we find this is a statement by Angela Merkel speaking for the EU. Will Boris dare to invoke Brexit and assert our new found independence?

    And at this point we really need a good laugh, dear reader, so read on: ‘That’s all folks! BBC takes aim at US cartoons‘ (Times) – could this be the latest example of BBC wokism? Are they banning Bugs Bunny because he’s a He?

    That’s the sorry fate of many beloved children’s characters. See here in the Star: ‘Mr Potato Head loses, er, meat and 2 veg. Kid’s toy goes gender neutral. Yes, really‘.

    Well, you haven’t heard the best yet. That’s not quite what the BBC are up to with American cartoons as we find out in the Times article: ‘The BBC wants to end the dominance of American cartoons because they prevent British children from absorbing their own culture, a senior executive said

        Just think the number of extra channels needed for the BBC to get uniquely funded on to cover all cultures, and then the 2-300 sexes that exist within them, according to Ceebeebies.

    Toady watch
    Out of duty I wanted to hear how the bbc is dealing with crankie gate – which they’ve ignored in England for a long time .
    Now they are being forced to look -which is great for an SNP hating Englishman like me – their behaviour at the end of the last Parliament and during our exit from the Reich showed them to be any enemy –
    So any one of them who becomes an casualty is great …and the bbc hates having to report the misconduct of its bestist friend – apart from the false president of course


    • Up2snuff says:

      Fed, now, you are being brave again. That ‘he says, she says’ thing makes me want to slouch back to bed and pull the duvet over my head.

    TOADY Watch #1 – BBC and NT go full Shinto and ABC on ‘tweeees’

    After news yesterday about the revival of Frasier and RugRats, I wonder this morning whether Telly Tubbies is due for a comeback. Hilary McGrady, Director of the NT, who – if I recall correctly – has played a part in bringing that august institution to its knees, is keen to get twee worship going in the UK. Anything But Christianity.

    There is going to be a massive tree planting campaign so that the public can admire A Blossoming Cherry. I’m amazed at the ignorance of TOADY Presenters at times. You would think they would be well acquainted with London and the Home Counties and be aware that we have lots of mature cherry trees and a delight they are. There are some even in Islington. As for Hampstead, Highgate and Muswell Hill, Beeboid haunts all, there are hundreds. One of the many delights of London life. 🙂

    Hilary Mc Grady wishes the British public to get close to nature. I would remind the lady Director that Covid and other viruses are ‘part of nature’. How about cutting charges for a visit and freeing up access to all NT land? Wouldn’t that be a much better way of getting British people close to nature without creating groves to the god of Global Warming and Climate Change?

    Be aware, BBC, of what God says about ‘groves’ in the Old Testament part of the Bible.


    • JimS says:

      Trees? Aren’t they those things that the English used to build ‘hearts of oak’, an essential tool in the imperialist, white supremicist, enslavement of the world?

      Burn them down I say!


  10. Beltane says:

    Anyone like to set up a sweep on the number of times we hear ‘Objection M’Lud’ (if indeed the Scotch use such vile English terminology) during Salmond’s testimony today?

    Assuming he appears of course. There’s many a slip on the way to court. No Smart motorways in Scotland are there?


  11. Up2snuff says:

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #1 – A tree short of a full forest or a bit of a joker?

    It’s Hilary McGrady time again. Nice little joke here – https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-56196275.

    ” Hilary McGrady, director general of the Trust, said the project was in its infancy, but “from little acorns great things grow”. ” Unfortunately, oak trees show no blossom although the buds are splendid and later on they keep the London squirrels – a.k.a. tree rats – well fed.


    • JimS says:

      “She added: “I want this to be just as valid as planting vast tracts of trees on mountains – it’s just as valid for every individual to want to plant a tree in their garden or their city. “

      Obviously she has never heard of ‘the tree line’, the height above which trees don’t grow on mountains.

      To see trees in blossom one doesn’t have to go to Japan, the view from the M90 or A912 looking down on to Perth in blossom time is quite something.

      Next year’s BBC story: ‘Millions forced to stay indoors because of tree pollen’.


    • StewGreen says:

      There’s a HYS
      Commenters point out
      #1 Some developer will cut them down in 20 years time
      #2 Sadiq is cutting down trees to make cycle ways
      #3 Planting little trees hardly compensates for huge trees cut down for HS2
      #4 4WD enthusiasts have mowed down sapling scheme in East Yorkshire
      #5 Drax cuts down lots of trees every day

      So she i on about planting decorative blossom trees
      Yes I would say they’re aesthetically pleasing
      BUT #1 don’t kid yourself that blossom lasts long
      “In general, cherry tree blossoms will last for around two weeks, though their peak blossom production will happen after around one week.”

      #2 Don’t kid yourself that you are saving CO2
      If the tree drops leaves, pollen, branches or fruit, which then rots, then that’s putting CO2 back into the air
      Only a tree which converts CO2 to trunk that then rots in a swamp to peat is really sequestrating CO2

    The BBC is in a terrible quandary. To show women’s
    football is one of their main sports priorities . But
    there is a severe problem for them . They consider
    that there are not enough BAME players selected
    for the England team. Do the BBC think that
    like the BBC with staff employment they should
    use “positive discrimination ” in team selection
    for the England’s national football side ? Or maybe
    if the women’s football association don’t pick the
    side on a quota system the BBC will not show the games?
    Any ideas ?

    Unfortunately caught a couple of minutes of BBC breakfast.

    Spotted the new BBC campaign. This WILL gain traction, keep a eye on it.

    Government purchased laptops for “poorer” families should not have to be returned per the BBC campaigning unit.

    They are a lifeline to these poor souls, and who do the BBC find to chat about this ….yes, you are correct, a BLACK family .

    Of course, the disadvantaged family must be black cos Britain is racist and holds this group back, well, we know that’s the BBC take on it .

    One week from now, the headlines on the BBC will be Nasty Tories remove learning from the poorest and ethnic minorities.

    Two weeks from now, the government cave in !!!!!!!

    BBC campaign successful and move on to the next one !!!

    That’s how it works these days !

  18. BRISSLES says:

    I’m up to here with all the sodding news coverage about BAME’s having issues with ‘taking the vaccine’. Rather flies in the face of how they have enriched our society with their presence doesn’t it. So apart from working in the NHS and having curry houses and corner shops, their contribution has included waves of TB, terrorism, gang warfare, stabbings, and now because of their inclusive communities Covid is rife and they are reluctant to do anything about it. God Almighty.

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #2 – that is not good but why, oh why … . .

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-56207074 . . . … do you and your wife push out constant PR pictures and opprtunities to that same Press when you have said that you wish to live quietly in a foreign country and do an ‘ordinary’ job and be financially independent? And why do you then read those same UK newspapers?

    Methinks the lady doth protest too, too much. Time to man up, Harry. Go and live quietly in the USA. Be quiet and happy and ‘ordinary’ there. And we will be happier than ever for you when you and your family do that.

    Remember the old Fleet Street saying: ‘Those who live by the s word, die by the s word.’.

    It was only a matter of time:

    “First Minister Mark Drakeford demands ‘home rule’ for Wales”.


    Foolishly, many people have been under the impression that so-called ‘Politicians’ do what their voters, in the majority, want them to do. I do not believe that anywhere near a majority of people in Wales would want a break-up from England.

    The problem is, in Wales most complain or confess to being undecided who to vote for, when that indecision arrives at the polling booth, they vote Labour by default. And they’re happy to admit that. So everything repeats itself ad infinitum every election.

      Reminds me of an argument I had with my dentist last week who is not giving any indiction when I can book a routine checkup. She said “we are not telling patients when they can be seen and all our patients are happy with this”. Totally delusional just like the BBC.

      I changed dentist that same day but unfortunately we cannot change the BBC/TVL as easily.


      • Scroblene says:

        We’ve saved about £150.00 on non-visits to our NHS dentist, which somehow charges us thirty-odd quid to mumble a few bits to a ‘nurse’, then scrape around a bit.

        Luckily, we quite like her, but the money’s much safer in our account for roughly the same ‘service’, with some decent toothpaste (or Eucryl – remember that), and an electric brush.

        As for the awful BBC, our mainly spineless MPs squirmingly and desperately need the oxygen of publicity, and they’ll always take the easy option for a ‘national broadcaster’, whether they agree on its principles or not. We have feeble shower of pathetic, weedy blokes and birds in the HOC, who will never do the right thing and order the BBC to fuck off and go private.

        If Rishi said he’d defund the BBC and use the money on something worthwhile, he’d be on a votewinner, but as an ex-graduate/politician from Goldman Sachs, that is a highly unlikely option.

      Her lawyers will still fight to get her citizenship re-instated
      and bring her back if successful.
      (The governments legal principle is that if someone comes to live in the UK they are not instantly a citizen, so their children born here are first citizens of the origin country, so if they turn out to be bad uns they can be revoked back to the origin country)

        Migration Watch:
        “With the government’s new ‘points-based’ immigration system having come online in January, it won’t be long before the economy starts picking up (we hope) and reality starts to hit home for those who think ‘taking back control’ would automatically lead to tighter border controls and less immigration. As we have repeatedly warned, the system in fact weakens crucial controls for international recruitment by lowering skills and salary thresholds, and allowing employers to bring as many foreign workers here as they like, and now with no need to try and hire locally first. We will continue to refer to this, it is that important.”

        Question?: Did the Fake President of the US contact the PM to discuss their plans for 125,000 a year intake or did our own fake PM contact Beijing Biden? Whichever, there seems odd similarities in the lockstep desire to eradicate low skilled jobs for the indigenous population. With ‘education’ quality falling rapidly, there is set to be major increases in the number in the low skilled category.

    Things that irritate on the BBC:

    When they make a drama and someone picks up the phone there is always a ‘ping’ just as the other party picks up. That means that the BBC is using the same stock recording that they have been using since they were founded.

    Sometimes when a relay contact was in a bad condition, a bit dirty, for a moment that contact would act like a microphone so you could actually hear the contact being made.

    It wasn’t something that happened very often so to have a recording of it is quite exceptional. It’s even more exceptional when one realises that the (faulty) equipment that produced that noise has been out of service now for a good forty years!

      When Eastenders had a scene of someone playing a video game recently, the sound effects were from a game called Galaxian, which was popular in arcades in around 1978, with the tinny sounds from mono speakers which was the norm at the time and 8 bit technology. You would think that at least one beeboid would pick up on this before it goes to air, but I would imagine that not one of them has ever used a home console. I mean, it’s a bit ‘working class’, isn’t it?

    Isn’t it comforting to know that the Islamic terrorist – still using british taxpayers’ money -cannot subvert findings of the UK courts by running off to the dodgy European Court ?

    Strike that one for Brexit – and one day we might get a right wing government to destroy the BBC…

      The people of Great Britain called for an end to illegal immigration.
      Boris and his government gives us Pritti

      The people of Great Britain called for a change at Al Beeb , its Woke broadcasts and and the end of the Telly Tax.
      Boris and his government gives us Tim Davie.

      Boris and his Liberals are not listening .
      The real Tory Party has now become The Reform Party.

        Fed, I’d settle for a conservative Government that would force the BBC to reform the Licence Fee or go to a subscription service.


        • taffman says:

          Forget “Reform”‘ The only answer is a subscription service. It terrifies them .


          • Nibor says:

            Tiffman ,

            Forget subscription, abolish it .

            Let it be seen that Gramscian infested institutions are beyond hope , and purge all institutions that house these vile people.

      And an Italian, supposedly extreme right terrorist won’t take a chance on a UK court but opts for a German one…a very soft one given the paltry sentence.


      I wonder how many of the other extreme right wing terror threats emanate from non-UK nationals?

        Not an actual Far Right guy
        “posed as a far right extremist”

        “in late April, early May.. in America we’d seen a significant rise in far-right extremist activity.
        “In that context of a far-right surge”
        That seems like BS, it was US antifa and BLM who were kicking off at the time.

        So libmob created this myth of a huge far-right conspiracy
        then an extortionist uses this myth to pretend to be a far-right network to strike fear to get a huge ransom.

    If you listen to TV news use of language with regard to the islamic terrorist – they day “ she wants to come home “ – displaying their view that she still linked to the UK .
    Casciarni had a look of disgust that she isnt being allowed to “come home “ -no doubt he will be joined by other friends of islamic and other terrorist murderers such as comrade corbyn

    We often hear about the “Great Reset” conspiracy.
    IMHO here it is …………..
    The Communists have become The Labour Party.
    The Labour Party have become The Liberals.
    The Liberals have become The Conservatives.
    The Conservatives have become The Reform Party.
    Finally, Al Beeb has become the promulgator of “Newspeak”.

    “Coronavirus levels ‘burning quite hot’ in some of UK”
