    1st.. top of the morning…and the rest of the day to me self.

    Lets get rid of the cesspit bbc as soon as humanly possible


  2. Twin_Town says:


    I bet the residents will be pleased about this.

    The poor dears who were put there moan about the conditions… they are the ones that made the mess – They weren’t always like that – good enough for Prince William to bunk at for a while… but no, the BBC have to give a platform to the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants to have a moan. Who is going to pay for all that damage to the barracks? I wonder???

      ‘Run-down’ Penally asylum camp to close on 21 March
      is the title of that long story


      • taffman says:

        Who or what run the barracks down ?
        Guess who will be sent to the barracks to clean them up?
        Where have all the threats to illegals coming in to the UK would not be granted asylum and would be sent back ?
        We have a Conservative government that gets tough on the people of Great Britain but soft on criminals.
        It is almost as if we, the tax payers are giving the French money to ship them in ?
        Can we expect record numbers arriving in Dover as we approach summer?
        Who will be making money from the 4 star hotels and for the new homes built to accommodate the illegals?
        Follow the money.

    With the ReichEU looking for any reason not to use the AZ Vaccine……..there should be a surplus.
    I’m going on to the NHS website to see if I can bring forward the date of my second jab !!!!
    It’s a win-win.


    • andyjsnape says:

      Hi Sluff, had my 1st astra vaccine yesterday, and was thinking the same as you, the supply for the UK should be fine 🙂 and my 2nd in the near future

    Democracy is in retreat, warns Dominic Raab
    How right you are Dominic.
    I wondered if I would read about the abuses of power we have witnessed by the BBC, Twitter, Facebook and other ‘giants’ who control the information we see to suppress political opposition to the Globalist Left – which have left true democracy hanging by a thread in the West.
    But no : it’s just softening the ground before we increase defence spending.
    And no such article from the BBC would be complete without giving Starmer a soap box to criticise the cuts in foreign aid and adding a completely unrelated whine about human rights in China.
    I also noticed the latest trick of the BBC is to give full titles such as ‘Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer’ to people with ‘favourable’ opinions – presumably to try and inflate the importance of what they have to say. Raab got no such introduction.
    All part of the drip, drip, drip conditioning of the average citizen.


    • G says:


      Preparing us for more ‘Hate Crime’ law or lock downs, or bans on protests or any other recent bans concerning free speech. Yes, Rabb is sure right: ‘Democracy is is retreat’ and they’re helping that on its way daily.

  7. JohnC says:

    BBC Front Page headline: ‘US:Putin pushed pro-Trump ‘influence’ campaign.
    Article headline: ‘Russia’s Putin authorised pro-Trump ‘influence’ campaign, US intelligence says’
    In the article: ‘Putin likely authorised attempts to influence last year’s US election’
    Right. So they don’t actually know at all. Like last time.
    But they got Putin and Trump in the same sentence again.
    That whole article is tiresome in it’s desperate attempt to smear Trump and clear Biden.
    Shame they don’t mention the immigration crisis going on over there. Mexicans are sending their children across the border unaccompanied with the intent to be able to join them later.
    I wonder how many of those young girls are being raped or taken for trafficking.
    My friend in California who works for NASA says they are taking over a whole building at Moffett airfield as an immigration detention centre for children.
    Funny how the BBC aren’t reporting that one. It would be main-page headlines if it were Trump.
    Their double standards are shameful. They don’t care one bit about those children. They are just tools when it suits them.


    • The WestWyvern says:

      Good post John, I heard the relentless anti-trump propaganda on the world service, during my early hours insomnia.

      Regards your last sentence about caring for children, I respectfully disagree. They care, but in a way with some degree of seperation, that Saville cared.

    “Julie Burchill makes ‘full’ apology for racist abuse of fellow writer”

    Apologise! To that disgusting, repugnant, representative of the Palaeolithic, what for?

    Any chance of the BBC apologising, to real humans, for the behaviour of the “Religion of Peace” since its foundation?

    Because members thereof have no intention of so doing. Cos they is special, extra special.


    • JohnC says:

      This got me surfing because abuse based on religion is not racist. It’s based on religion. And it’s not Islamophobia because it’s not a phobia. And is anyone trying to deny Mohammed was a peodophile ?.
      Anyway, my clicking led me to the attacks on Asians in the USA and this stunning piece of ‘journalism’ in The Guardian.
      They give the three high-profile examples of how bad it is. You have to work on google to discover who did it – but they are all by black people.
      Then they actually dare to write:
      ‘… blaming supposed anti-Asian sentiment from the Black community for the crimes. This narrative, which has not been supported by evidence, has nevertheless shoved a new wedge into age-old cracks between Black and Asian immigrant communities in the US.’.
      Then – when challenged about this – ‘Carroll Fife, a longtime San Francisco Bay Area activist and Oakland city councilmember, who is Black’ tries to shut it down by saying ‘you can’t fight racism with racism.’. So it’s now racist to accuse black people of being racist !!.
      These are all quite disgusting people. I thank God I don’t need to interact with any of them in my normal life.


      • JimS says:

        Always be aware that the USA isn’t the UK so:

        USA ‘black’ = African-American = decendants of forced imports
        UK ‘black’ = UK coloured, renamed without consent = volunteer imports plus volunteer African imports

        USA Asian = Japanese pre-1939, Vietnamese post-1960 & Chinese
        UK Asian = Pakistani and Indians post-1960.

        The USA ‘blacks’ produce ‘white guilt’ because of slavery. By rights that should be totally absent in UK ‘blacks’ but we imported race guilt from US Academia.

        USA Asian produces ‘white guilt’ because pre-WW2 US Japanese were interned and US Vietnamese come with ‘napalm guilt’. USA Pakistani imports are neglible and USA Indians are IT experts all looking for the chance to make money by hard work.

        Personally if I was a USA ‘black’ slave child I would be really annoyed that my 200-year US heritage was bypassed by half-white ‘recent’ volunteer imports like Obama and Harris being called ‘black’.

        I should also say that ‘liberal’ means completely different things to an American than it used to mean here, but then no political labels mean anything now. There is no such thing as extreme left, or far-left, indeed left = normal. Everyone else is facist, far-right or extreme-right and the only conservatives are doctrinal Muslims. It is all very confusing as the people behaving like actual facists are those that claim to be against facists.

        The trouble is we keep importing these American useages and we don’t realise until too late the changes that come with it. For instance ‘gender’ came along because the prudish Americans thought ‘sex’ meant ‘the act of’, not the biological difference. Having broken the biological link we now find that the ‘gender’ box comes with a lot of flavours and biology is now ‘far-right’ and facist.


        • G says:


          I’ve come to realise that the US is now a fully-fledged, ‘Basket-case’. I’d expect anything to happen there. The ‘anything goes’ and greed culture determines everything. That same culture is becoming rooted here. Daily something is broadcast from the US which causes me to doubt the sanity of those running contrary to what is blatantly obvious. Take for example, Polosi’s blaming DJT for what’s happening at the southern border right now. Incomprehensible. Pile of shysters.


          • digg says:

            G, I agree…. for some time I have been astonished and repulsed by the direction that the USA is travelling in.

            Watching the election was like watching it happen in Bolivia or Guatemala.

            Yes GB is heading in the same direction although not yet plumbing the depths reached in the “land of the free”.

            Witness for instance the BBC morphing into CNN.

            It has occurred to me that possibly China has been at work taking the USA apart for much longer than we think.

            Its rather like watching the fall of the Roman Empire, a once upright and strong powerful nation becoming a pack of rabid dogs biting each other and falling apart.

            There is only one way this can end and it ain’t going to be good.

            I believe Trump could see this and tried to stop it but was overpowered by the satanic hordes doggedly sacking the Country, but for what end? Certainly not the good of the USA!

            I can only conclude that it being driven from outside the Country.

            I had planned to visit relatives there before Covid but wouldn’t ever dream of even setting foot there now.

    Atlanta shootings: Asian women among eight killed at three spas
    “reports” the bBC


    Why the need to mention Asian women????

    Imagine changing the headline to 8 white people have been killed!

    Another day closer to shutting the bbc down surely


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      At this stage we do not the motivation for the attack. One was at a massage parlour, the other two were at spas, which is sometimes a synonym for massage parlour. Perhaps the motivation was against perceived ‘sex workers’ and the fact that some of the victims were of oriental extraction unrelated. We simply do not know.

      However, what is not mentioned is that whilst there has been an increase in reported racial attacks against Asian Americans, many of the perpetrators are from a particular racial group. An example of this was the much publicised incident in which an 84 year old man of clear Oriental origin was attacked in San Francisco and subsequently died. The alleged perpetrator appeared in court a week later. This incident is far from isolated, and many attacks have taken place, particularly in California and New York.

      Antoine Watson pleads not guilty after attacking and subsequently killing 84 year old Asian man. Not even a 3rd degree murder charge. from aznidentity

    TOADY WATCH #1 – the third wave, the third wave, the third wave

    Actually, it’s the fourth or fifth bout of Covid – if it exists – but the BBC cannot count – even on its fingers. In the first few minutes of the programme this morning it was mentioned.

    Will the BBC be advocating a cancellation of the ‘road map’ that Sir Keir and the Labour Party argued was a necessity for a ‘route out of Lockdown’? Will the BBC be ‘suggesting’ that the latest Lockdown should remain until everyone has been offered a first jab or a second booster or their autumn ‘top up’ jab?

    I missed the rest of the first hour so I don’t know if it was mentioned again. It does seem to be an increasing narrative of Covid fear being pushed by the BBC. Yesterday, a US doctor mentioned the B-117 variant (thought it might be a new US bomber?) on TWatO.


    • The WestWyvern says:

      Up2, have the beeboids ventured out of the bubble? With the exception of pubs and non essentials, round here it’s back to normal. I’m sure a few bed wetters are hiding but in the main people are doing their daily business and paying scant notice to lockdowns.


      • Up2snuff says:

        They may have noticed or heard rumours of your ‘little local difficulty’ with Lockdown rules, of an ‘early relaxation’, and the W1a Bubble does not approve. Hence talk up the third wave ….


  13. The WestWyvern says:

    Farming Today, or as an erstwhile poster recently called it ‘Framing Today’… Still banging the anti Brexit drum this morning. Articles on fishing quotas and the ‘hungry time’ (the period between Feb and May when our seasonal produce is at its lowest…. The B word was convieniently slipped in a number of times regards ‘shortages’.

    Also, I don’t know who prepares the script, but they are fond on opening with a subject and like to use a certain phrase regularly, normally when a government minister type is putting in an appearance.

    ‘this morning, we look into the impacts of water abstraction and sugar beet, a discussion with minister for water, John Smith… More on that later….

    Careful use of articulation and pauses clearly implying, to the early morning listener that actually, in their view, John Smith is a moron.


    • Up2snuff says:

      TWW, yes, guilty as charged but not too erstwhile yet. 🙂 I have to admit the ‘will to live’ has been a bit dented by the events of the last week to ten days.

      I caught the end of Framing Today. Anna seemed uncertain which way to jump: pleased on behalf of farmers that market prices have held up for calves, disappointed about the ‘claimed emissions’ that some say come from beef farming and that the market hasn’t collapsed due to Brexit.


    • Nibor says:

    Toady Watch

    The BBC has found an excellent way to undermine the vaccination programme . It is to promote stories about our EU enemy banning the oxford vaccine because of a few ‘blood clots ‘ – or in reality – because these countries screwed up their programme .
    So Meeshall merrily chatted to a Medic who kept on saying ‘no problem ‘ but Meeshall kept pumping the doubt …
    With a bit of luck by the weekend the UK take up will be reducing – the programme will be slowing – courtesy of the BBC/Reich EU and infection rates and deaths can start climbing again.
    For the BBC this will be excellent news as it can start chirping about resignations ‘ apologies which is a favourite default line … effing disgraceful ….

    By the way – someone put a poisonous anti vax video on this site last night . As moderator I will not allow the biased BBC site to be used in this way . Go to YouTube for such stuff .


    • Foscari says:

      Fedup2- Honestly when I was writing my comments I don’t
      think yours was up yet. If I missed it I am sorry. Partly
      because of my age and my bad spelling and poor grammar.
      I have to edit my comments several times before the final print.
      And there still often mistakes. Or it may just be great cynical
      minds thinking alike at more or less the same time !


      • Fedup2 says:

        I didnt mean to come across as critical as i think this is a case of
        ‘ great minds thinking alike ‘

        But it seems ironic that one minute the BBC is pushing for more coloured guests to take the vax and then rubbishing it using the EU songsheet


    • Banania says:

      YouTube, like the BBC and the MSM generally, suppresses sceptical talk about these particular vaccinations. Was it the Vernon Coleman video, because that was a serious challenge to the present orthodoxy? Eventually, whether he turns out to be right or wrong, his arguments will have to be discussed. The Government has been efficient for a year establishing that there are some things you are not allowed to say, and the hard-working Marianna Spring has been hunting down misfits for the BBC.


  15. Foscari says:

    James Gallagher a BBC medical correspondent has
    really put the cat amongst the pigeons with his front
    page report on his AZ vaccination jab. Merkel and Macron
    couldn’t have asked for more !
    I am sure many of us who write on this website have had
    the jab and haven’t made any comments on how it affected
    us . James Gallagher had quite a severe reaction and he
    wants to tell us all in the UK, why?
    The BBC have allowed one of their own correspondents
    a medical one at that, to stick the knife into the achievements
    of the vaccine. This is all it will take for maybe millions not
    to have the jab in the UK.
    Yes there are side affects from the AZ. I had some very mild flu
    like symptoms for a couple of days. But I have had this with
    the flu vaccination as well.
    Perhaps somebody like professor Van Dam should of told us
    that there can be side affects . But should the BBC be involved
    in scaremongering ? Or is there anything more sinister ?


    • Fedup2 says:

      Your comment ends with a question . See my entry 4 minutes before yours for the answer – as to why the BBC would want to undermine the Oxford jab .

      Even if the Reich EU vaccine mafia give the Oxford AZ clearance when it announces tomorrow the damage is being done – and those looking for an excuse to avoid the jab will have one
      – courtesy of the EU BBC ……

    Last night I posted about David Davies using parliamentary privilege to describe some of the stuff the SNP were trying to prevent the public from finding out –

    – one response was that David Davies and salmond are ‘friends ‘ – perhaps that poster is another SNP ranter . My point was about under reporting of what Davies had done .

    I care not for the SNP , crankie or salmond and wish them all ill – but it came as something for UK Parliament to be used for the purposes of openness .
    The duty SNP troll in thr chamber was – I think – completely blindsided and was unable to stop Davies dishing the dirty truth ,.


    • Solomon Grundy says:

      Hello Fed,

      I think you should reread my reply to your post. I did not say that Davis and Salmond were friends. I said that is what ITN News reported.

      I think David Davis did the right thing in using parliamentary privilege to expose the corruption by the SNP in the Scottish Parliament.

      Is clarifying that a news story has been carried by another terrestrial news outlet really “trolling”?

      Should knowledge of a friendship between the two politicians be suppressed here (always assuming it was not misinformation supplied by the SNP)?

      The BBC web site is now carrying the story:



  18. AsISeeIt says:

    Gary Lineker, in both the Daily Mirror and the Express, this morning tells us: ‘I’ll get my brain tested…‘ – do let us know if they find anything. In fact, repeating the same thing over again is a clue to dementia – the condition about which our Gary is concerned – but I jest. Reach plc does tend to share apparent exclusives among their several titles.

    On the subject of football the Times notes that the players’ union have got themselves a new leader. Maheta Molango is apparently a: ‘Swiss lawyer… the surprise choice to lead the Professional Footballers’ Association…‘ and with a name like Maheta Molango, if they’ve appointed him due to the fact he spends his time munching toblerone at the après ski and tooting the alpine horn between the odd afternoon’s yodeling and his legal cases involving avalanche damage compensation, then I’m a St. Bernard: ‘Maheta Molango will be the first black leader of an English football body‘ – well, that’s the main thing, I suppose.

    Refering back, if somewhat obliquely, to our Gary and other (probably) elected figures who routinely signal their virtue by promoting enthusiasm for mass immigration: ‘US migrant crisis. President Biden came under pressure after it was forecast that the United States is heading for a 20-year peak in migrants crossing the Mexican border‘ (Times) Elections have consequences.

    The globalist FT acknowledges the issue but is keen to put a human face on the problem. Afterall, from their globalist point of view, no amount of immigration is ever too much or too sudden: ‘Help at hand. A Border Patrol agent holds the hand of a child whose mother is seeking asylum at an immigration centre in Brownsville, Texas this week… some 9,500 unaccompanied minors arrived last month‘ – no doubt they won’t remain unaccompanied for long. The potential supply of third world would-be migrants to western countries is inexhuastible, so when western leaders signal a demand for them, your home town is going to become another potential Brownsville… Texas.

    The BBC is keen on the Guardian frontpage today, promoting the low circulation paper to number one position in the BBC online press line up: ‘“We need to know” Pressure on No 10 to trigger Covid inquiry‘ – so here’s the political Left’s main tactic for attacking Boris – a shroud-waving demand for Lockdowns – sooner, harder and for longer.

    The Gruan call it a ‘Special report’ and delievers a full on party political attack ad with uniformly ethnic flavoured actors:

    The ICU doctor “There was a lot of wasted time with plans not fit for purpose”; The bereaved son “Dad died at home – it was just treated like lquite bad flu”; The nurse “Somebody has done something very wrong”

    One tries to imagine the ideal Leftist Prime Minister which the Guardian would envisage and wish upon us – He/She/They would be PM and First Lord of Public Health. A qualified epidemiologist with a knack for prescience bordering on foreknowledge. They (I’m now assuming a male/female job share, like the one that worked so well for the Green Party recently) would Lockdown the nation indefinitely at the sound of the first sneeze and do it harder and crushing more liberties than the Communist Party of Red China.

    It’s a strategy, I suppose. There does come a point however, where life may be so restricted and curtailed that it doesn’t seem worth living.

    The Guardian’s immediate political play, on behalf of the Left, is to try to make some capital out of the notion of an inquiry. But as seems to be the case for the Left, since the days of Tony Blair, it all gets very legalistic and procedural, departing from any notion of democracy and putting power into the hands of lawyers: ‘Crucial issues that could be examined‘ and: ‘Who should chair it? What would its remit be?

    Brief Scottish side note, apropos of inquiries: ‘Sturgeon aide accused of meddling in inquiry‘ (Telegraph)

    And finally, there’s a faint whiff of intersectional tension in this Daily Telegraph sport headline: ‘Cheltenham history as Blackmore lands female first‘ – celebrate a female first by all means but we’d best not look too closely into the derivation of the name Blackmore.

    There’s not a fag paper between the BBC and Sky News these days.
    The other evening, in a moment of weakness, I caught about thirty seconds of the appalling Sky News. Awful…

    They were reporting on the carryings on at Clapham Common over the weekend. It was Sky’s description that had my jaw on the floor.
    “Police arrest mourners at Sarah Everard vigil…”

    They then cut to a scene of complete mayhem showing hysterical harridans shrieking at the tops of their lungs and behaving like out of control toddlers having a tantrum. Mourners?

    I went to my uncle’s funeral the other week. He’d been a policeman all his working life and as a nice touch the Hearse was accompanied by one of those old Wolsey police cars. You still seem them in 1950s police dramas and it had been the first car he’d driven when he joined.

    All the attendees were quiet, sombre, respectful and reflective. It was a lovely service, recalling his many years of dedication looking after the people of south London… and then we quietly shuffled outside into the cold early Spring afternoon.

    There was no shrieking or screaming. None of us decided to start hurling abuse at anyone. We didn’t even riot! We said our goodbyes and quietly departed.

    We were mourners.
    That other lot on Clapham Common…

      It was 2001-2013
      Chancellor is an honourary title
      Vice Chancellors are the real boss.
      Then the Glaxo Smithkline head became chancellor in 2013
      I expect every top person in China is a CCP member, it doesn’t mean they actually support it.

      “A recent survey found that Yang Fujia, the former chancellor of Nottingham University in the UK, is also a veteran CCP member.”

      Looks like he was head of a Chinese university first and Nottingham had a close relationship with it.

      2012 “International House on the University’s Jubilee Campus will now be known as the YANG Fujia Building in recognition of the fundamental role Chinese physicist Professor Yang has played in the University’s development over the last 12 years, and particularly in increasing its engagement with China”

          My reason for asking is that, apparently, a well-known supermarket is selling (despite Brexit) Brussel Sprouts packaged with a strange looking flag (following Brexit) and proudly proclaiming their origin is from Lincolnshire, despite Brexit.

              The flag had a green field, I guess, for Lincolnshire and a big red vertical/horizontal cross.

    Anybody got a date as to when we will be getting our first non left tv station (GB News or something like that) headed by Brillo.

    Something else


    • JohnC says:

      Is that for real ?. That is seriously shocking if it is : you don’t make a lie like that without a good reason. It’s not just Joe – everything has been faked – even the reporters.
      Just imagine the uproar if Trump had done it.
      I wonder if the BBC ‘Fact Check Team’ have seen it.

        The BBC Fact Check team appear to be spinning, literally in circles as a ton of dodgy things have happened… but none suit.

    TOADY Watch #2 – never mind the hypocrisy, never mind the contradictions, feel the fear

    JustRemainIn Webb tries to give the Business Secretary, Kwasi Kwarteng, a hard time over CO2 emissions. Never mind the emissions, Mishal talks to a CEO of a company launching a rocket and satellite (Brenda from Bristol: “You’re joking – not another one?”) to clean up space debris. Mishal states without a hint of irony that Elon Musk has launched hundreds of rockets.

    This rocket & satellite will manouvre itself alongside large pieces of space debris (junk) attach a tow point, will set the junk spinning, re-locate the tow point, grab hold of the junk and then send it spinning toward the earth’s atmosphere to burn up.

    No questions asked about CO2 emissions, I note.

    But Mishal is worried that space debris might take out her mobile phone connection and GPS.

    Trump tells Republican supporters to get vaccinated, “reports” the bBC today

    the other day they reported, that Mr Trump hadn’t told them to get vaccinated, but in the “report” the other day went onto say he had!

    TOADY Watch #3 – in the news, in the news, keep him in the news

    Who? Trump? Yes. Or Biden? Yes. Either will do. In the 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. News the BBC report that there are signs the Russians did try to meddle in the US Presidential Election and possibly in all the Newsies in-between.

    Laughably, they suggest it was in favour of the anti-Communist, pro-business, Donald Trump but not in favour of the candidate with links to and most likely to be favourably disposed toward Russia and China, Joe Biden.

    I hear in my head the voice of the Norfolk Sceptic replace Brenda from Bristol: “Yeahher, roight!”

    Stop press.
    Two new coronavirus variants have been identified.

    The strains, named BBC1 and BBCR4, produce symptoms including immediate loss of taste, then headaches, anger, sore throats, ultimately leading to neurological conditions including confusion, mistrust, and completely altered perceptions of reality. Immediate isolation is essential.
    A cure is so far unavailable on the NHS. However an effective treatment can be gained privately by seeking a refundable credit of £157.


  37. Sluff says:

    Probably already reported but I just can’t wait to see the look on the BBC health correspondent’s face when the Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch coronavirus variant takes hold.


  38. Zelazek says:

    I often wonder about Michael Buerk. His trail for the Moral Maze tonight (The Morality of Masculinity) was a splendid summary of the current debate about maleness. Whatever the topic, he usually delineates both sides of the argument so well that the difference between the sensible traditional view and the crazy woke view becomes stark and clear and persuades me that privately he surely must be one of us rather than one of them.

    • Beltane says:

      Not a lot of BBC coverage on the old pals acts between Guardian favourite and two-faced scumbag Roy Greenslade.
      After decades of denial this heroic man of the media now trumpets his links with and support for the IRA – including full acceptance of the ‘legitimate killing’ of innocent children in the furtherance of their noble aims.
      His close friendship with another BBC hero, Alistair Campbell might also bear closer examination – though of course that won’t happen.
      What a pair of men to celebrate – as Douglas Murray obliges in the Speckie. Happy St Patricks Day folks.


      • Fedup2 says:

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #1 – that’s kinda unfortunate …..

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-56375307 … when it happens to a BBC staff member. Bad vaccine response, that’s what. Was James given a choice of the two vaccines? Did he talk over with his GP the choice and whether it suited his medical history? Was the vaccine administered properly?

    It is crucial that vaccine doesn’t escape on to the skin. The human skin is one huge petrie dish that will go to work on anything allowed on there. Usually for beneficial reasons but not always. I was taught by a Practice Nurse that the influenza vaccine, if allowed to escape, can not only give you a dose of the ‘flu’ but it can mutate and infect others, even undermining the vaccination programme.

    I have seen numerous photos of Covid vaccination – on the BBC web-site – which appears to suggest they are often given carelessly, two such pictures have appeared on the BBC Home Page just today.

      There was more tutting and shaking of the BBC head earlier this week when they tried to make us all feel guilty for not considering the environmental impact of sending flowers on Mothers Day. At a time when a lot of people can’t visit their mothers this was low, even for the BBC.


  43. Rich says:

    I don’t watch or listen to any bBbc output but wanted to see what their St Patricks Day coverage was like, checked the webshite, one thing led to another, I ended up on the Sports page.

    Have a read of this.


    Shouldn’t be compared to the men’s game but then they do it themselves,
    Want smaller goals and smaller pitches but seem to want equal pay,
    Claim that players like de Bruyne are only better because they’ve been coached for longer, nothing to do with men being more athletic, much faster and much stronger.

    These women are so deluded. I blame the bBbc.

    ” it’s frustrating when you want to be seen as someone playing the same sport and equally good, but not compared to, because you can’t compare “. What?

    Who says the bBbc don’t do comedy?

      Seems like you’ve swallowed the koolaid there. You had that freedom prior to the plandemic, why would you now comply with the oppression and accept an ID document by the back door?

      I had the covid and I should be as immune as anyone without a vaccine. The Israeli government delayed vaccine shots to those who had had the wu flu precisely for that reason.

      Don’t give in to them !


      • Fedup2 says:

        I dont know what the koolaid is .

        You have you principles – i have several


        • Thoughtful says:

          Drink the Koolaid is a reference to Jim Jones who gave his followers poison laced Koolaid.

          They knew what they were doing and did it anyway. The group was supposedly a religious cult, but they were more a group of ‘woke’ Lefties.

    The BBC are going all out to to turn the Clapham Common ranting activist episode into an anti-police thing, especially anti-white-male-police.

    They dragged on an ex Chief Constable Lady to R4 to claim that there are large numbers of male police officers who are little better than rapists.

    The BBC have sunk even lower!


  47. digg says:

    Dominic Cummins is having a bit of a go at the Government Health Strategy Response over Covid and suddenly and weirdly the BBC are referring to him as “Dominic” rather than “Cummins”, wonder why?

    Ever had a coal or gas fire? Ever driven a motor car? Ever been on a Bus or a Diesel Train?

    R4 yesterday telling us that there is a Global campaigning organisation that is trying to make the production and or use of fossil fuel in the past “Genocide” yes you could be a mass murderer! Along with The NCB and British Gas, BP etc.

    They have apparently got as far as seeking to set up a Nurenburg style trial in The Hague to bring all the guilty to justice. No doubt they are planning the construction of a massive number of gallows to make this just like the real thing.

  49. vlad says:

    Thanks to the hysterical climate of thought created in no small part by the uber-woke BBC, we have reached a point where simply disagreeing with people of colour is deemed racist and can end careers.

    Piers Morgan dared to express doubts over claims by the insufferable Duchess of Victimhood and then disagreed with assorted people of colour on his show, for which he paid the ultimate price.

    Now Sharon Osbourne has been made to walk the plank on some inane US chat show for defending Piers and daring to disagree with her black co-host.

    Henceforth the only acceptable response will be Yes sir, three bags full. Or else!



    • Tabs says:

      We have already seen this with the police not investigating Muslim rape gangs for fear of being called a racist but now it is everywhere.

      I’d hate to be on jury service if the accused was BAME. Finding them guilty might get you arrested for racism in the near future.

    Thank God , Nigel Farage got us out of that dictatorship. That man deserves. a knighthood.
    How many readers and posters on this site are still paying The Telly Protection Racket ?


    • Thoughtful says:

      You do understand we have a Marxist Tory party in power? The party which enobled Green far left loon Baroness Jones?

      There is no chance the far Left Tories are going to allow an honour to someone like Nigel Farage much less a knighthood.

      We do not live in a democratic country and the sooner people realise that and stop voting the better.
      The Tory party cheated at the election which should have seen Nigel Farage elected as MP, and despite being found guilty and fined for doing to, the result was allowed to stand.
