In one small incident on BBC Breakfast TV on Thursday the British taxpayer was given direct evidence of the true views of BBC staff. The lie of an ‘unbiased ‘ ‘neutral ‘ BBC was lifted as two presenters sneered at the Union Flag . Maybe it’s time for a makeover – and remove the ‘British ‘ from the BBC. One incident to remember .

Mr AsISeeIt’s Law
There’s a peculiar slow news mood in the press this weekend as our media seems to have battered the virus almost into submission with coverage; the papers instead slide into a lethargic something must be done campaigning mode, but flounder about for a suitable target.
The Irish-flavoured TV comedy Father Ted gifted to us the gag about the placard slogan “Down with this sort of thing” when the hapless priests were ordered by their bishop to protest on some issue.
And so it is in the papers today.
The formerly patriotic Sunday Times, for reasons unfathomable, considers it’s about time it set its sights on the hereditary peerage: ‘Revealed. The truth about the peers who are born to rule‘
Quite what brought on this end of the peer show may be obscure but the Times has declared open season on the lords of the manor and they are apparently fair game: ‘£47m amount claimed in expenses since 2001. 71 average age. 46% how many went to Eton. 0 number of women‘
Older white men, as we will see again and again this weekend, are about the last category of prey allowable in the cross hairs.
As for any proposed constitutional change, I take the Churchill attitude that our system, whatever its faults, may be the least worst of set ups. Change it at your peril. Don’t fix what ain’t broke. Watch out for the unintended consequences.
Would Labour supporters wish more Tory crony appointees in the second chamber? Would Tories want more common purpose alligned quangocrats to take up places?
And what has an activist House of Lords done for us recently?
‘A 6pm curfew for all men has been suggested by a Green Party peer today “which would make women feel a lot safer”… Baroness Jones spoke in the House of Lords during a debate on domestic violence this afternoon‘ (My London News, Thursday 11th March)
Go back to sleep, m’lords ‘n’ ladies, go back to sleep, please.
There’s a none too subtle juxtaposition made on the frontpage of the still pining for Brussels Times: ‘Exclusive. William’s “frustration” at Johnson’s prorogation of parliament‘ – Prince William’s frustation at his mum being drawn into a constitutional morass or maybe the Times’s unending frustration at Brexit?
Frankly, as a traditionalist and monarchist, one found oneself rather frustrated with the Queen that she wasn’t just a tad more proactive constitionally in upholding the wishes of her people against an obstructionist pro-EU parliament that wanted to block Brexit. If the Windsors are going to enjoy their titles as constitutional monarchs by popular conscent then they really ought to be prepared to engage as arbiter in a moment of constitutional crisis rather than run a mile when things get tricky. But I digress.
The Mirror campaigns against police, men and policemen: ‘Special investigation. Shameful. Sexism, sleaze and bullying rife in the police, claim former officers. Top cop: why my daughters would never join the force‘ – really, there’s a “top cop” still calling the police a “force” and not a “service” – do I smell a rat? No wonder this is an ex-cop.
‘Suing the Met Ex-cop Nusrit Mehtab‘ – good luck to her, I suppose she has a good case? In any case, when she wins compensation and my local police station is closed due to budget constraints at least I’ll know where some of the cash went.
The attack on the cops is not exclusive to the Mirror. The Observer piles in: ‘Revealed: list of sex abuse claims against Met officers‘
‘What will it take to get judges to see sense on violence against women?‘ – asks Catherine Bennett in the Observer – oh, I don’t know… how about the laws we already have on the statute books?
The Sunday Telegraph goes all jingoistic and wants to fight the Russian bear: ‘SAS takes fight to meddling Russians‘
I can’t help but smile at the language employed here – meddling Russians… what are we Scooby-Doo? Did poor old David Cameron say of his referendum defeat, when we finally pulled his pro-Brussels mask off – “I’d have gotten away with it if hadn’t been for dem meddling Russians”?
It gets worse: ‘Special forces to work with MI6 to counter wide-ranging threat from Moscow’s spies‘ – wide-ranging seems to me a sinister cover-all reds-under-the-bed fuss about not very much to me. Remind me which country it was that launched the covid and wiped 10% off our GDP without having to fire a shot?
The Sunday People goes with an odd one: ‘Victims can ban abusers from the pub‘ – on the basis I’m presently banned from all pubs I’m forced to reflect who it is I’m supposed to have abused so as to have been condemned to this cruel and unusual punishment?
I’m being flippant of course – and of course the People have a male abuser and female victim in mind and yet another bit of odd preferential legal addendum is being written in to further complicate English Common Law: ‘Kay’s law named in honour of murdered carer‘
Here’s something one had not previously considered. To hell with all these peerages and landed titles, the highest available honour in life, the finest epitath achievable, is to have some right-on sub-clause law named in one’s honour. Mr AsISeeIt’s Law?
Regarding the green’s daft 6 o clock curfew for men to keep wimmin safe.
Have they not thought this through?
If they lock up all men 24 hours a day wimmin will be even safer.
A sure vote winner for them and those who think the same way.
The Lords will never be changed -yet alone abolished . It provides the function of being a source of reward from each PM – failed corrupt and mad politicians and others can take the ermin on the understanding that theyll behave .
The MSM dont examine it because they all dream of advancement anyway.
Whenever challenged the two main reasobs given for continued existance is
1 members’ ‘expertise ‘
2 it finishes off stuff the commons has put through
I could demolish both shallow arguments easily – the high point being –
1 it is undemocratic – in fact anti democratic ( see brexit )
2 it fails to quality control key legislation – eg fixed term parliament act which led to the obscenity of the last parliament – which must never be forgotten .
Wont even talk about numbers , backgrounds or costs …..
By the way – you can see why certain ex PMs dont take their seat – it would get on the way of filling their bank balance – see
Cameron and Blair ….
The abolition of life peers would bring about a huge benefit and saving at a stroke.
‘North Korea’s ‘only openly gay defector’ finds love’
Good luck to him. Who cares ?.
Why are the BBC spending OUR money on staff to write lengthy, 100% woke, totally irrelevant stories like this ?.
Apparently it warrants double the size of the other story which caught my eye:
Pakistan: Two men sentenced to death for motorway rape
But of course the latter is a bit to close to the bone for the BBC with all the Pakistani rape gangs over here and it’s only there because it will be noted if they don’t cover it.
The BBC, always vehemently pro EUSSR take great delight in telling us the great dictatorship are going to block export of the ‘jab’ to Blighty.
Whatever the rights, wrongs and theories about the China virus and the vaccine, the EU have shown their true colours in their mishandling of the whole thing.
If ‘our friends’ as the useless incompetent tories refer to them on the continent do indeed prevent deliveries then it’s time for a full boycott of all things EU. German cars, no thanks, french wine, buy Australian, Spanish salad, grow your own. Dutch cheese, plastic tripe. Get cheddar. Holiday in Southern Europe, Nien. Let the Germans have the sun beds.
An approach that hits them hard in the pocket will be the only way they listen.
So, there I was the other evening, mug of tea, beans on toast (the high life!) and I thought “I’ll have a bit of telly.”
Richard Osman’s light hearted quiz was on…House of Games…I think it’s called. Four celebrities, usually people I’ve never heard of, struggling to answer questions. You know the format…
I caught it the other week when the ultra dumb blonde, Melinda Messenger, told us, straight faced, that Queen Elizabeth the first came to the throne in 1903. That had me choking on my sardines I can tell you! So, using Melinda’s time frame I’m guessing that Francis Drake saw off the Spanish Armada in about 1916 …
Last week, that well known intellectual heavyweight and doyenne of numerous chat shows, June Sarpong was one of the contestants.
Well blimey, I always suspected that she wasn’t the brightest light bulb on the Christmas tree, but ye gods, SHE’S THICK!
She came last each day and on one memorable occasion actually managed the almighty feat of scoring nil points. This really is something of an achievement because due to her quite stunning stupidity they started bowling her some really soft questions. “Now June, the capital of England is…I’ll give you a clue, it begins with L…”
I hear that our June has been awarded both the MBE and OBE for services to broadcasting and now has a nice little number at the BBC in charge of some diversity board. FFS, what the Hell is going on? I wouldn’t trust this woman in charge on my ironing board!
Surely it can’t be long before this intellectual titan is ensconced in The House of Lords. Lecturing us all about white privilege.
Beam me up Scotty…
I’ve always been amazed at how utterly clueless about the real world so many showbiz luvvies and journalists actually are. I bet many are unable to even change a lightbulb.
They live in a make-believe bubble.
There must be a joke in there somewhere:
‘How many luvvies does it take to change a lightbulb ?’.
A coconut for the best answer.
I’m asking, ‘why am I changing the lightbulb John? What’s my motivation? I can’t zone without a little bit more darl, try to work with me on this one, my luv.’
I think the usual joke about luvvies and lightbulbs goes:
How many actors does it take to change a lightbulb?
One to change the lightbulb and sixty to say, “That should be me up there.”
As for June Sarpong, I remember her awesome talent being deployed on “Conspiracy Theories with Jesse Ventura”!
I don’t change light bulbs, I leave that sort of thing to my maid.
‘How many luvvies does it take to change a lightbulb ?’
‘Ask my agent’.
Knowing that Osman is no slouch in the intelligence stakes, I often wonder what he quietly thinks of the numbnuts in those chairs. Another pearler is Denise Van Outen, who had no idea where (or had even heard of) the Golden Gate Bridge was. Another on her team placed the Niagara Falls in Florida. Doesn’t it make you weep.
As for Sarpong. This woman’s only skill is nodding like one of those ‘nodding dogs’ in the back window of a car, when she takes part in what is laughably termed as a serious debate. This woman has written books apparently (for what age group ? who knows), but I can only imagine her numerous wigs and make up distract from her lack of debating (and intelligence) skills.
Andrew Shagger Marr bigging up the vaccination problems in the EU, as if we should really give a fook given their threats on vaccine blockades. To be expected of him.
More interesting is the front page of Al Beeb’s house journal, in this case the Sunday issue aka the Observer (of anything that can be used against a Tory Government). It concerns complaints of sexual misconduct against the police.
Did the Grauniad/one-eyed Observer ever run a front page on long running child grooming by Asian perverts, mainly in cities run by their Labour friends who knew exactly what was going on?
…complaints of sexual misconduct against the police. Did the Grauniad/one-eyed Observer ever run a front page on long running child grooming by Asian perverts…”
You do realise of course, that it was the sexist attitudes of the police (disbelieving the young female victims and dismissing them as “sluts”) which enabled the perpetrators to get away with it for so long?
Have you had your ‘Jab’ yet ?
BBC Online News today.
“France 32-30 Wales: Late drama as hosts deny Wales Grand Slam at death”
In BBC world, England are always ‘beaten’ when they lose. Wales are merely ‘denied’. Much softer. And typifies the BBC’s hatred of all things England.
Have to admit here that as I live in France ???????? I was shouting “allez les bleus “ at the tv .
Interesting to see France head coach accusing the Welsh of ‘stage managing’ red card incidents to ensure sendings off.
I somehow doubt that he would support the notion that two outrageously biased and disgracefully poor French ‘referees’ did their best to ensure that the England team were well beaten against both Wales and Ireland.
This is not to excuse our poor performances, but the negative psychological effect of playing 16 is as inevitable as it is frustrating. Compare the fair and measured performance of Pontypool-born Luke Pearce with either of the pedantic French clowns to see how, in a large part, the Wales-France game flowed so brilliantly – even with all the TMO.
At least, the French being the balanced and mature nation we know and love, any decisions being influenced by Brexit or Astra-Zeneca are unlikely. Or put another way, about as likely as Huw Edwards being told to put his flag away with good grace.
Marr also interviewing Mairead McGuinness who is pushing the EUSSR’s ‘internationalism’ regarding vaccines.
As if the EUSSR themselves produced the vaccines rather than companies who are following the contracts they signed.
(She has an EUSSR flag behind her, btw, don’t snigger!)
And now McGuinness being invited to talk about Coveney’s frequent uttering that he ‘simply cannot trust the UK Government’. Have you heard the UK Government say openly that they cannot trust the EU or the ROI governing bodies?
They can’t say it of course, even though it is true, but they don’t shout about it to the media.
I noticed that this irish horror got plenty of attention on twitter . She demonstrates that the EU is a bigger threat to the well being of the UK than anyone else … and must be treated that way .
McGuiness: the face that turned a thousand pails of milk sour.
‘US election: Trump tells Georgia election official to ‘find’ votes to overturn Biden win’ BBC
Big big fake news story…one that was used to try and impeach Trump…fake news fabricated by the Democrat Washington Post and spread around the world…the Guardian and BBC both reporting it as fact….however, despite the wall-to-wall coverage then, now the real facts come out the BBC and Guardian have gone quiet…the Washington Post has had to issue a correction but the BBC and Guardian? Not so much.
‘“Correction: Two months after publication of this story, the Georgia secretary of state released an audio recording of President Donald Trump’s December phone call with the state’s top elections investigator. The recording revealed that the Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source. Trump did not tell the investigator to ‘find the fraud’ or say she would be ‘a national hero’ if she did so. Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Georgia, asserting she would find ‘dishonesty’ there. He also told her that she had ‘the most important job in the country right now.’ A story about the recording can be found here. The headline and text of this story have been corrected to remove quotes misattributed to Trump.”’
The BBC was really keen to ‘fact-check’ Trump’s call on the day after…
‘Georgia election: Donald Trump’s phone call fact-checked’
That’s despite the BBC not having an actual recording of the phone-call….kind of difficult to fact check something you don’t have and are relying on information provided by an unknown source huh?
The BBC isn’t so keen to fact check the truth now as the audio is released and it is found that the Washington Post ‘misreported’.
From The Arab News….lol…not the BBC…
‘The Washington Post has admitted it misquoted former US President Donald Trump in a misleading story surrounding alleged voter fraud in the state of Georgia.
In the article that was later cited by Democrats in their impeachment documents against the then president, Trump was incorrectly quoted as having told the chief investigator of the Georgia secretary of state’s office to “find the fraud” in the state’s presidential election and she would become a “national hero.”’
….‘ Mark Hemingway at the Federalist, an American conservative online magazine and podcast, said Trump’s alleged pressuring of Georgia officials went on to be cited by democrats in the US House of Representatives during the impeachment articles against Trump.
“A few weeks later, house democrats would cite the article and its fabricated quotes on page 10 of their impeachment brief, as well as highlight the article and its fake quotes in oral arguments during the televised impeachment trial,” Hemingway said.
He went onto say that had the story been accurately reported it would still have been impactful.
“Even accurately reported, the story may have been newsworthy or unflattering to Trump, but there’s a huge difference in criminal intent between a frustrated and addled Trump asking an investigator to look into fraud he genuinely believes is real versus pressuring the investigator to invent it,” Hemmingway said.
And he cited the female investigator on the phone call as having told local news “she did not perceive any pressure from the president’s call.”
Hemmingway slammed the retraction as being too little, too late: “A correction two months after the fact, when the story has already played a significant role in shaping perceptions of political events, seems wholly inadequate.”’
Al Beeb were also very quiet, to the point of silence, into the report by the Special Counsel into the Russiagate lies. Trump exonerated of course but no headlines and certainly no criticism of the lying, loathsome Clintons and their UnDemocratic followers who pushed these lies for 4 years.
Impeach the impeachers.
They have made a complete mockery of American democracy. The Republicans should do the same to them so they realise their actions have consequences.
First stage : set up 6 committees looking for reasons to impeach Biden. I can already imagine the bitter reporting from the MSM hypocrites if they did.
Summary of the Wapo retraction
In the first article they said they had an actual recording, so people took their quotes as gospel.
Now they say the quotes came from a third party.
Waking up to R4’s Sunday programme rejoicing at a Muslim actor being nominated for Best Actor Oscar. Some paranoid Muslim commentator claiming this ends the Academy’s disgraceful 91-year history of failing to represent Muslims.
I hate hearing idiocy on the radio. I particularly hate the unchallenged idiocy otherwise known as BBC journalism. The reason Muslims haven’t been nominated for Best Actor Oscars is because cinema has been a white European invention and industry. For most of its history, Hollywood has made films about and for its main audience – white Christian Americans. Why wouldn’t it?
In this age of wanting everybody to be involved in everything regardless of whether they’re any good at it and providing they’re not white, logic flies out of the window.
Was the question asked on R4, ‘how many awards has a white European / American won for a performance in Bollywood ? ” And yes the originators of cinema were not people of colour, with many being Eastern European Jews. I would ask that if these jewish people coming from equally poverty stricken areas as those in Muslim or African countries, could make their mark in the world of making movies, then why couldn’t anyone else ?
Now we see the entertainment industry falling over themselves to make amends in their rush for diversity, even giving posthumous awards to actors of colour. Of course there should be changes, but from what I’ve seen there’s an inordinate amount of tokenism going on, and a lot of rewards being handed out for mediocre acting skills.
I’ve recently been watching a lot of Spanish cinema on Netflix (my Spanish has improved 100% as a result), and they at least have remained true to period depictions. Dramas set in the 20’s and 50’s have been free of any diversity washing.
And if you watch anything they put out as ‘entertainment’, you quickly realise why they haven’t won anything.
Are they too stupid to realise this is simply them to stop (and the woke cretins) screaming ‘racists’ ?.
If they had any shred of honour at all, they would refuse to accept any award on this basis.
True moslems ought not to act anyway. They can lie and pretend, but not act.
Surely it’s just a matter of time, and I say this with all due respect to the victims and their families, before the BBC find that the blame for the Holocaust lies squarely with Winston Churchill and the (white) British people. This message to be delivered by Saint, sorry, Dan, Snow, the ace BBC historian.
Isn’t Islam great? Here is an article with 14 separate photos of Muslims, 6 of those are the same Muslim woman.
This article is more like Instagram than news.
The BBC just can’t help itself….a piece about Greek tragedy ends with a comment that this art as used to demonstrate the evils of colonialism, empire and racism today…..listening to it that never once came to mind….still, I guess if you want to find it you will find it….
In Our Time
Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss Euripides’ great tragedy, which was first performed in Athens in 405 BC when the Athenians were on the point of defeat and humiliation in a long war with Sparta. The action seen or described on stage was brutal: Pentheus, king of Thebes, is torn into pieces by his mother in a Bacchic frenzy and his grandparents condemned to crawl away as snakes. All this happened because Pentheus had denied the divinity of his cousin Dionysus, known to the audience as god of wine, theatre, fertility and religious ecstasy. ‘
Makes the Church of England sound pretty feeble.
Our nominally Tory Government is pondering the curtailment of the Supreme Court’s intervention in what are clearly proper political matters decided by Parliament.
It seems parts of the US court system is in agreement..
He makes plain his disdain for Justice Kennedy’s contention that “criticism of the Court is tantamount to an attack on the Constitution.” Instead, “I readily admit that I have little regard for holdings of the Court that dress up policymaking in constitutional garb.” It’s that kind of dissimulation that is “the real attack on the Constitution.” Indeed, “[t]he notion that the Court should somehow act in a policy role as a Council of Revision is illegitimate.””
The Sahara is getting massively greener, so is the Amazon, so is the Arctic..and no doubt all around you is getting greener….a balance will be reached eventually as plants absorb CO2 more and more and the effect is diminished…but the effect of more CO2 is obviously huge and beneficial.
‘Carbon Dioxide Fertilization Greening Earth, Study Finds
From a quarter to half of Earth’s vegetated lands has shown significant greening over the last 35 years largely due to rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change on April 25.
An international team of 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight countries led the effort, which involved using satellite data from NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer instruments to help determine the leaf area index, or amount of leaf cover, over the planet’s vegetated regions. The greening represents an increase in leaves on plants and trees equivalent in area to two times the continental United States.’
LOL….don’t celebrate yet…the doomsters are on the case…
New York Times….
‘‘Global Greening’ Sounds Good. In the Long Run, It’s Terrible.
Rising carbon dioxide levels are making the world greener. But that’s nothing to celebrate. ‘
No real reason…just that it may, may, may all end one day…..and then climate apocalypse…
‘Global Greening Won’t Last Forever
There’s still a lot that Dr. Campbell and his colleagues don’t understand about global greening. Most importantly, they don’t know how long it will last.
As temperatures rise and rainfall patterns change, plants may stop soaking up extra carbon dioxide.
“Plants are quietly scrubbing the air of one China’s worth of carbon. What frightens me is knowing this can’t go on forever,” said Dr. Campbell. “If respiration catches up with photosynthesis, this huge carbon reservoir could spill back into our air.”
“There’s a wild card out there.”’
Yesterday Patrick Christy show had a head to head on Illegals
Sangeetha Lengar began with 3 extraordinary claims
#1 That the Australian policy wasn’t working
and it hadn’t decreased the number of refugees landing
#2 That it was costing the Australians $900m to house the just 300 refugees in the offshore programme
#3 That there is no such thing as an illegal ..cos of the law that facilitated Jewish child refugees to get to the UK in pre-WW2
AFAIK her first two claims are pure incorrect hyperbole
and her third is semantics.
Then Emma Webb
: ‘If you flee a country for your life, then in the first safe country you should claim asylum, in the hope of returning.
You are a REFUGEE.
but if you leave that safe country, you are an economic immigrant an ILLEGAL’
but then after that she was a bit wishy washy like a guilty Islington person
– Emma’ Tweet has her audio only
61% claiming to be children including 40 yo and a guy became a bomber
– The illegals are in hook to the smugglers , so acceptance is supporting modern slavery
A lorry driver then told how he checking his lorry at a Belgium truck stop and found the lock broken and 12 illegals inside.
“Are you all coming to Germany with me?” he asked
I see that the cowardly Boris the bottler alleged leader of the cowardly useless incompetent Tories is planning yet another far left Socialist betrayal of the British people by giving amnesty to millions of illegal in the UK.
The appalling act would allow those who have never contributed to the UK, and have criminally entered our country by evading bnorder controls and immigration proceedures a reward of citizenship.
It would entitle them to claim housing, NHS treatment, benefits and pensions to which they were previously not entitled without making any kind of contribution.
It makes me wonder how this excuse of a party is really any different from Jeremy Corbyn, and if we really would have been any worse if he had gained power, because so far as I can tell there’s very little difference between the two.
And it would be a massive incentive for all the worlds other illegals to head here to the extremely soft touch UK.
If you were living in a hole in the ground in Africa or the Middle East why would you not up sticks and head for Blighty.
These politicians are very free and easy with our money and our Country.
A plague on all of the virtue signalling,woke, full of self importance,preening, gobshites.
* and they call themselves ‘Honourable’
It’s probably the Orwellian meaning.
Just been out for my walk around the trip wire of Stalag UK.
Spoke to one white old lady and passed two African families with young chldren. Of all the placesin the world that we might take immigrants from Africa has to be bottom of the list.
Besides we have our quota of colonising, anti-colonialist, African whingers in our universities already. Why don’t they show us what they can do in Africa?
Worldwide, I personally see the only answer to halting the growth of liberalism or Communism is ‘tax strikes’ Don’t know how or if it is possible but a tax strike for a couple of months would more than make these people, free with our money, sit up and take notice.
As far as I can see the only party remotely interested in genuine immigration control AND countering the vile effects of Islam AND standing up long term for our majority population and culture is For Britain.
This is why it is denigrated by all and sundry.
Good for AMW for not taking the bait in Hartlepool and avoiding the Parliamentary by-election.
She is standing in the local elections.
“The press is the problem. It is the press that decides who gets to speak to the country and who doesn’t. That’s why those of us who oppose mass immigration and are honest and open about the impact of importing hostile religions and ideologies, or who understand climate alarmism, or object to the trans madness, are not going to get positive press coverage. Our only option then is to work from the ground up.”
Its pretty clear now that Bo Jo and Priti have been ‘turning a blind eye’ to the dinghy invaders all along.
Are there any Tory voters left ? because I think this will all end in tears .
Cant beat a bit of science fiction being used to inflate military budgets can you ?
Im sure the chinese see blighty as a desirable bit of real estate – or maybe not . ….
Not many chinese faces on the BBC eh?
You’ve got no chance….just keep quiet and admit you’re a white supremacist…
If you say you’re not racist that’s proof you’re a racist.
If you have black friends that’s no proof you’re not a racist.
If you’re married to a black woman that’s because you’re an enslaver who wants an exotic sex slave.
Good way to get banned from the twitter –
jonathan George Snow HonFRIBA ( c4 fame ) wont be impressed since his partner is non white …
All men who are married are misogynists… (or
…the BBC, who takes on token BAMEs is definitely racist!
“If you say you’re not racist that’s proof you’re a racist.”
How about saying; “Enoch was right”, claiming; “it’s perfectly natural to be racist”, and telling “coon” jokes?
Do you think that might indicate someone’s a racist, Pug?
One of those BBC ‘ successes ‘ returns sunday night ‘ call of duty ‘ or whatever it is called .

Some miserable BBC autocue reader – dressed in black – is going to have to announce that a record 874000 vaccinations were done yesterday ….
Thats equivalent to two thirds of the population of a small ReichEU statelet-

That irish EU witch who was on Marr – plotting restrictions of exports to the UK – can swivel …
But Labour says that over 50% of these were with the AZ vaccine and the NHS has been put on alert for excess clots. A spokesperson for the NHS said that there were a lot of clots about and only an increase in budget could cure that.
Something tells me that BoJo is about to move the goalposts ?
Anyway that guy Alex Belfield that runs a radio studio in his kitchen alone with his dog, who gets more listeners than the multi-million funded , multi-staffed Al Beeb, will be making an important announcement this evening at 6pm .

There are 64,000 asylum seekers in the UK 9500 of them are in hotels, an increase from 1200 in March 2020.
That’s info from the R4 doco
whose main purpose was to say that a lot of asylum contracts
have been award to Mears group who it claimed don’t run them well.
Claimed when Covid came to a West Yorkshire centre they couldn’t cope so dispersed the 60 residents across the country without tests.
Then it featured emotional black clips from asylum seekers

Blurb The Asylum Business – the UK’s hidden housing crisis
File on 4
The multi-billion pound AASC contract is the Government’s ten-year blueprint for how those seeking asylum in the UK are treated while they await a yes or no for their refugee status.
After a year under the pressures of Covid , the contract has become mired in controversy.
Former army barracks which have been repurposed as temporary holding centres for those applying for asylum have experienced fires,
(FFS It was ONE fire started by residents, seemingly at the advice of the refugee NGOs)
… Covid-19 outbreaks and resident protests, and in other parts of the country, private landlords are threatening to pull out of the contracts (yes of course)
.Are those living in such accommodation being treated fairly and humanely? Paul Connolly investigates.
The prog is very little discussed on Twitter apart from about 12 different refugee charities promoting it.
Having listened to that program I wonder why all those bogus asylum seekers come here ,, with their Covid .

Have you apologised for posting a fake photograph of Whoopi Goldberg yet, Stewart?
Hey maxi – it looks like you are in the ‘cut and paste ‘ groove tonight . Do you have any view or comment directly relating to your BBC …? Say it is unbiased or fair or doesn’t push its far left socialist agenda ,,,,
Maxi, It’s Stew, if I had of course I would
Though I don’t recall ever posting such a picture
and nothing shows up on a search.
I don’t have a grudge against her or anything .
Please share a page capture.
Preferably not Getty Images of Maxine.
@Maxi, you’ve made an accusation there.
Yet I have no recollection of making a post about Whoopi Goldberg
I don’t make posts mocking people’s appearance.
All I can think of is that I sometimes post Simon Webb videos
and he talks about what he read in the paper that day, and he often picks out items that are racebaity
So if Whoopi had been in the papers he may have used that image.
Maxi, I see there was a doctored image a “kill Trump” Whoopi t-shirt
that Rosanne Barr famously retweeted
An easy mistake cos Trump haters did create such images/T-Shirt etc.
eg Kathy Griffin proudly holding up a severed head of Trump etc.
I have no problem in saying that Whoopi is a victim of misinformation there.
Maxi could run it by Wendy’s cracked squad, but they seem curiously occupied ‘checking’ ideological foes or protecting BFFs.
I still await clarification on Marianna’s claimed quote on her Times article.
Still not seeing anything from Maxi.

“Whoopi’s inciting T-Shirt”
@Maxi yes I already posted above that there is a well known doctored image of Whoopi
That person was wrong to defame Whoopi
and I am happy to correct the record & apologise for quoting that tweet back in January.
Nevertheless some Trump-hater did create that T-shirt.
And creating T-shirts like that is pretty hatey.
I don’t go around suggesting people should be killed
The one bottom left is special.
In what way is that a conspiracy theory?
This, and the other twatter tweets that Stew has posted.
They’re just talking amongst themselves now, increasingly irrelevant in real life, virtually no-one knows or cares who or what they say, only their arrogance and stupidity stops them from seeing this.
Do Marianna and her chums really not realise the game’s up, that in the scale of things they just do not matter?
@Rich I agree at the beginning it’s a bit handbags or playground stuff
but when Belfield has BBC getting the police to come round and arrest him 4 times and take valuable stuff away
that is a real human impact.
The first blogger did the right thing by retracting the post.
AB had the option of walking away too, but chose to pursue the DJ he claims was pursuing some vendetta against him.
Then the BBC could have stopped it by fessing up but they didn’t.
Alex Belfield reveals the witch-hunt against him orchestrated by the BBC in cahoots with the Nottingham police and the courts.
One may not always agree with Alex about everything but he is one of the few voices standing up to the plague of lefty wokeism sweeping the country, and more specifically the increasingly fascistic BBC.
Watch it before it’s banned.
He sounds confident that the truth will out. I hope he is right. But the BBC, the Law and a chunk of the Government/Civil Service are very much in harmony
If this is true, the BBC are in real trouble.
Truely shocking from Alex Belfield.
He states he has MP Andrew Bridge on board
Could this be the end of Al Beeb ?
It looks very serious but I can’t see nowt on Al Beeb about it ?
Why cant this bloke say what the allegations are ?
What he is on bail for ?
Instead of ranting for the first 7 out of 22 minutes of video ?
What help does he need if he has lawyers ?
What is the roll of the CPS is this ? (They prosecute not the police officer)
What have police complaints said?
I watched 14 minutes out of the 22 minutrs this but could have done without it . One thing though – i think this bloke does need help.,,
He is waiting to go to court tomorrow before he says any more ?
He appears to be on the same side as us?
Im a bit jaded when i see these youtube jobs as i get fed up with people not getting straight to the point . 23 minutes – i got to 14 before losing the will to live listening him wingeing .
I cant see it being any loss if it gets taken down . Maybe if he gets arrested and actually charged we mighf get more facts about allegations. Until then …. nah …
Most of the time he is like an unpaid Piers Morgan, all rant and no substance.
Is there substance here? Who knows? If there is he probably can’t legally talk about it but even then he should be able to get the key points across in a minute or so and even win some support.
Lets see what develops tomorrow ?
An awful lot of projection going on here. He’s already boasted that every YouTube click is paying his mortgage; it’s all part of the grift.
Hi maxi – how are you doing ?
“Hi maxi – how are you doing ?”
Having an enjoyable evening. Nice of you to ask.
Blimey maxi – you even cut and pasted that !. Anyway – I’m glad you are still reading the site and providing a function .
I’m still waiting for my view about the BBC to be challenged -with accompanying evidence – cut, pasted or otherwise … but I think – with the volume of evidence recorded here every day – you’d really be up against it . Regards to Naga .
Besides trolling, why do you post here?
What motivates you ?
“What motivates you ?”
You motivate me, taffman, only you. And for that I’d like to thank you; and also for all the laughs you’ve unintentionally given me over the years. You’re a star.
Thanks maxincony , it takes one to know one eh ? Ask a silly question and you get a silly answer .
You are an Al Beeb troll after all. But you are not helping your employer.
lol, the Lefty gets bitter and a bit nasty very quickly.
How absolutely normal. Get yourself a mirror maxi. Try and see what you are.
“Blimey maxi – you even cut and pasted that !”
And this – just in case my reply becomes orphaned down the page. I’m very considerate you see.
You’ll find a discussion under the youtube video
and on twitter
Belfield has spoken about the blogger, the PI
and his attempts to sue Jeremy Vine before
and police coming round saying “We’ll arrest you if you don’t…do”
but then not following through
It is strange that he claims he’s on bail ..without ever being charged
..and that police have raided without a warrant.
The main thing is is never let them in, and always film them for your records.
The MP’s tweet
Maybe Andy could ask Dave to look for a policeman?
AFAIK the Theatre blogger had libelled AB in post
which actually got withdrawn
Belfield then reckoned that the Radio Northampton DJ had asked the blogger to write the post
The BBC told him you can’t say that.
And he said he won’t deny he did, so I reckon I’m right
The BBC said you are harassing our DJ and sent the cops in to arrest
AB said its not harassment I am perfectly right to ask him if he initiated that blog post.
Then separately AB accused Vine of collecting a BBC payment to finance a funeral do .which was actually paid for by another org
So the licence payer should get the money back but never did .
That how the ITV PI whose friend came to spy on AB.
If it’s connected to this, then he doest come across as a very sympathetic character:
I suspect he’s cynically using the “anti-BBC” stuff as a way of grifting more cash out of his most gullible acolytes. Popular on this site of course…
How does that compare with the method Al Beeb gets its cash from pensioners over 75? Scrap the telly tax I say . By the way
maxincony, are you paying your Telly Tax or do you get it free?
Dutch Man comments on our national broadcaster
His parting shot says it all: F**k off BBC.
People are waking up.
Its a shame he lacks the clarity needed to be a good journo . I think hed do better talking to his ‘legal team ‘ than us .
@Fed interesting I checked
That doctored t-shirt doesn’t represent Whoopi
yet what is written below about Sellner today certainly doesn’t represent him today either.
Stew – think we crossed – my comment was about ‘bell field ‘ who someone put up a 22 minute whingeing video yesterday …
Has he been arrested today as he claimed he would be ? Did he get the ‘help’ he was begging for ?
Actually – don’t bother – could care less …
“ Dutch Man”; wearing the symbol of “Generation Identity”; the organisation lead by Neo-Nazi Martin Sellner (who gets his kicks planting swastikas on synagogues).
I wonder why he and his fellow chumps were so welcome at a Tommy Robinson rally? Really can’t imagine…
Will that go out on the World Service?
Whilst waiting for the rugby on the bbc, I saw their latest attempt at getting people to like them. They are using word play on their BBC logo, the one I saw was Balletic Ball Control. Obviously a couple of snippets of ball handling from various sports. The one I wait to see is Blatantly Biased Crap.
BBC local news “the 97% of women who have been sexually harassed”
FFS stop putting catcalling in the same category as prosecutable stuff.
– Some sexual stuff has little impact, you just think ‘that guy/woman is a weirdo’ and pity them.
– But when it comes to actual proper abuse , all victims matter particularly if the abuse was repeated, whether the victim is male or female.
By pushing a narrative that sex abuse is something to do with ALL women from all masculinity, you are downplaying male victims of kiddie fiddlers and anal rapists.
Sure vast majority of perps are male weirdos, but they don’t exclude all women or include all men.
Then Literally 10s on Covid and road deaths
Then “Pupils in Barton have represented the UK in EU Youth Climate Conference of 28 EU schools”
Girl “It’s the biggest issue”
“The EU have promised to listen”
“On Tuesday we’ll have a special One Year of Covid episode ..no doubt the deceased lesbian wife will be featured”
Meanwhile. In Turkey.
Apparently Turkey has said that the ironically named Istanbul Convention, a treaty “which seeks to prevent, prosecute and eradicate domestic violence – was incompatible with its family values”.
“At least 300 women were murdered in Turkey last year”.
I wonder if Greasy Stella and the rest of the feminazis ever take time to consider how privileged they actually are to live in Britain?
No, of course not, stupid question really.
It’ll be more than 300
Turkey has an 80mn population
Seems they are often booked as suicide
Activists do quote 300 as the tally investigated as murder.
“BBC local news ‘the 97% of women who have been sexually harassed’.
FFS stop putting catcalling in the same category as prosecutable stuff.”
“Catcalling” (as you euphemistically describe it) doesn’t cease being in the category of “sexual harassment” just because there are other more “prosecutable” types of sexual harassment.
“Some sexual stuff has little impact, you just think ‘that guy/woman is a weirdo’ and pity them.”
Been “catcalled” a lot walking too and from the shops in your hometown, Stewart?
“By pushing a narrative that sex abuse is something to do with ALL women from all masculinity…”
No one serious has suggested it’s “all” men.
“downplaying male victims of kiddie fiddlers and anal rapists.”
“Sure vast majority of perps are male weirdos…”
They are not “weirdos” Stewart, they are just ‘normal’ every day blokes who consider constant sexual harassment as just a bit of harmless fun. The same attitudes that permeate through all the way from describing grabbing a girls arse as; “a cheeky pat on the bum” – to; “if she’s wearing a short skirt she’s asking for it…”.
That’s the whole point. Something you seem wilfully unable to understand.
So here you go:
StewGreen, FEBRUARY 26, 2017,
“Sexism : Anyone catch the ITV 7:30 show about sexism ?
They had a woman dress up in skin tight leggings and walk around London for a day
..And thus they got a narrative :
‘Look men are horrible, they call out at poor women’
But that is a FALSE narrative , cos she wasn’t “just a woman”.
..No she was a Looker ..and that is quite different…
So her being #1 a Looker and #2 dressing in skin tight jogging pants was likely to provoke…”
You then go on to compare sexual harassment to people making fun of your hat.
@Maxi, No I pointed out that nutters shout out at people.
– The nutter shouts at my hat
– Then a woman comes past dressed in revealing clothes and he shouts at her too.
and you class that as ” sexual harassment”
Nutters shouting out at people is not in the same category as traumatic crime.
Yes I’ve been in lots of situations where people shout at me in the street, in foreign countries where foreigners are not common.
In Arab countries I’ve been shouted at cos some weird men thought I was a woman from a distance.
If you want to compare like with like then I can say I was sexually harrassed as a young man. I was no “looker” I can assure you. Even though in the instance I’m thinking of the woman was older, and I fancied her not one jot, I still took it as a compliment.
I’m sure that if it even happened to me then it must happen to most men when they are young. But this is how low the bar must be so that 97% can cross over. It does no favours to the women who are genuinely harrassed and in fear from some men.
BBCFour now : Hour of poem , Ode to the NHS
Tonight is poetry night
7pm David Jones great WW1 poem investigated by Owen Sheers
8pm Ode to NHS by Owen Sheers
9pm 6 poets on British railway journeys
Sounds good but will it be ‘de-plat formed’ or ‘cancelled’ ?
Dutch listing magazine tweeting about tonight’s BBC 2 film
..which people in Holland can watch without having paid the BBC
“The boy who harnessed the wind”
“He studied the books and the guy got an idea to build a wind generator”
…sounds a bit weird, you don’t need an electrical stage to build a wind powered pump, it’s much more efficient to do it direct.
Set in 2002 , it seems like propaganda to me.
In the middle of the country there is a huge lake
I can’t imagine it ever dries up.
seems to me he built something that would charge mobile phones
and that the drought bit is highly spun
BBC propaganda. Probably not true, or only partly at best.
Used to be a common sight in the USA and parts of the UK.
There is full scale anarchist Marxist rioting going on
in Bristol . And the BBC call it protesting !! BUT BBC
be completely committed and support your brothers
in Bristol. Maybe they will more than set fire to police vans,
smash police station windows and even maybe the so
called “KILL BILL ” riot , because that’s what it is ,will achieve
it’s aim.Then BBC you can talk about ,what a protest it was.
Surely any such assault on the police in Bristol should be described as a Massive Attack. bBbc being as Tricky as ever in their use of language.
Oh, and something about Portishead as well.
Strange ‘policing’ in Bristol – stand around and watch a statue being tossed in the dock, stand around and let people graffiti riot shields.
A little bit of early toughness would have avoided bigger problems later.
Time to get rid of Police Commissioners, box-ticking female senior officers, Common Purpose courses, College of Policing and the Association of Chief Police Officers. Bring back Peelian policing by helmeted constables in blue, led by those who have shown good service throughout the ranks and who have earned respect.
Question : Are police commissioners any good ? Is the selection of recruitment broken ? What experienced ‘on the job ‘ training do they get ?
There were created by the idiot Cameron – some nonsense about local ‘accountability ‘ when – of course – they contribute nothing ….
Why are the BBC stations on the telly the only ones that don’t have a +1 station? Silly me, they obviously can’t, otherwise people would watch the crap an hour later and not pay, coz it ain’t live. Then again most of the shite they do put out isn’t live either.
Congratulations BBC you are now getting what you have been goading on for. the last few weeks with your anti-police garbage…
Best of luck, if I was a PC I would walk way and leave it to you shitty lot to sort out!
You sow the wind and reap the whirlwind….
Skateboarding at the Bristol riot
Change the image suffix to “small” and it works
ISIS/IRA etc. BBC. Maybe it’s an initials thing. Certainly go together.
So Radio 3 drama have you got a nice traditional British tale for me tonight ?
Oh slavery drama, as plugged on the R4 Arts show the other night
As I said the wokists and the Times amplify the BBC, cos if the BBC do 10% of progs with a black theme
they will end up making up 30% of the photos in the TV guide.
Today the black actor from that drama, a black footballer, and two black characters from the BBC2 movie
Or, How Al Beeb loves Great Britain! You can you tell by its propaganda.
This rioting by anarchists in Bristol is worrying . Especially
if the BBC take their side . Which they are very capable of
There; fixed that for you.
I see the BBC are on the Sturgeon team
