    BBC is obsessed with victimhood, saying “women are oppressed”
    I looked at this week’s Waterstones book charts top 10

    – Paperback Fiction : ALL FEMALE except Matt Haig at #1

    – Hardback Fiction : 7 Female , 3 male

    – Paperback Non-Fiction : 7 Female , 3 male
    – Hardback Non-Fiction : 6 Female , 3 male
    Wokes dominate Non-Fiction : Bill Gates climate book, Obama biog

    Netflix have a new drama about Mary Anning the top Victorian-era fossil hunter, who happened to be a woman.
    .. TVland isn’t happy with there being no record of her sexuality, so they have made her a lesbian.

    I’m listening to Any Questions and it is becoming obvious that the 1% pay rise for nurses is being used by the Left to attack HMG. No-one is considering the poor PR aspect of the Government’s actions. Hancock has walked into an unnecessary row. The Govt is missing Dominic Cummings.

    Will anyone on the Panel stand up for the taxpayer? Almost certainly not. Will anyone remember the general public including non-tax paying children who have had to save the NHS twice? What about their sacrifice?

    Everyone on the Panel is paying lip service to the wonderful NHS without considering its failings through the Pandemic. I’m starting to think the best thing for the Conservative Party will be to lose the next General Election. It will teach the whole country what austerity is really like!

    Trending : the Jolyon mob think they have got a gotcha against Boris
    .. “He lied to parliament so he must resign”

    #1 Boris lying is to be expected
    #2 It’s about that almost non-crime of declaring Covid contracts within 2 weeks instead of 3 or 4
    He in reply to a question had stated that they had been declared within the 2 week limit.
    IMHO it’s rather minor NOT the gotcha they think it is.

    Anybody anywhere stated that they regret voting for Brexit? No?

    Amazing! I’m sure the BBC will cover this anytime soon… 🙂

    I’ve noticed that the Brussels Bogus Corporation now start their interrogations with “can you defend”, whatever they want to catch the interrogatee out with.

    Well BBC
    1 Can you defend not mentioning the pounds strength against the euro?
    2. Can you defend never having anything good to say about Brexit?
    3 Can you defend the arse licking of the left, that you carry out with great alacrity any chance you get?
    4 Can you defend the absolute crap you put out about climate change?

    Can anyone add to this list? I have feeling it could be never ending!

      How about, Can you defend Robbing the poor to give to the Rich with a Telly Tax ?


    • Fedup2 says:


      I raised this earlier in the week – context – the government has defended its’ decision to …( do something the BBC doesn’t like )
      Very often it’s a penny share ‘research group ‘ comprising of a 20 year old student with a computer …


  7. StewGreen says:

    New Covid data
    trend continues
    236 people recorded as dead
    still higher than most countries, but once cases are high it takes time for deaths to fall.


    • Up2snuff says:

      Stew, the BBC are very late in updating their Covid stats page.

      I wonder why?

      Always seems a bit suspicious, as though someone is casting around for some more cases.

    \\’Racist’ Welsh YouTube channel removed//
    “But it was accused of using “foul” and “unacceptable” language during an investigation by BBC Wales’s Newyddion S4C programme and had its YouTube accounts removed on Tuesday.”

    All because Al Beeb Wales says so.
    How many of you readers have heard “foul” and “unacceptable” language on Al Beeb ?
    How many of you readers are still paying the telly Tax?


  9. taffman says:

    Not Al Beeb, but is Talk Radio becoming Anti Woke, because I heard that Penny Spencer has been replaced by Kevin O’Sullivan? If true, how long will it be before they poach Nick Ferrari from LBC?


  10. StewGreen says:

    London courts had a day of fines for illegal parties organised during Covid mostly in November
    Bromley woman & her sister Shanika Stephenson-Gordon
    And in Dagenham : Bianca-Valerica Ciochina,
    The first woman’s name is Islamic, the second ‘s is a Romanian name

    The other people in the report seem disproportionately of foreign origin.


  11. taffman says:

    “Brexit: Government relaxes more trade rules between GB and NI”
    Top “Comments” appear from from Rejoiners ?

    New thread up – and we are ‘migrating ‘ which is news to me so don’t ask ….
