Weekend Thread 27th of March 2021

So a Parliamentary Committee (DCMS)has determined that the structure of the BBC cannot be changed until the whole country has topJonny broadband . Then – maybe – financing of the BBC can be considered. Politicians can now rely on this to avoid responsibility for change for the BBC – in any form.

The report is freely available on the web but here is a link – https://committees.parliament.uk/publications/5243/documents/52552/default

Don’t forget – for no reason clocks go up or down or back or forward Saturday night

    Crikey am I the only one here?
    From The telegraph letters page (a request).
    The students at Batley Grammar have launched a petition in support of their RS teacher .
    20, 800 have signed so far and signatures are coming in thick and fast .

      Apparantly none of the so called protestors is a parent of a child at the school, and the Gestapo have yet t issue a single covid fine to any of the brown eyed boys, proving that there is one rule for the hated untermenschen, and another for the superior ubermenschen.

      As per usual however the cowardly useless incompetent Tories have yet to issue a formal condemnation of any real note, and support for what was not so long ago our freedoms.

      The solution is a simple one but requires an atom of courage – therefore this is completely impossible for the Tories.

      Build a large prison complex in Pakistan at our expense from the overseas aid budget. Those sentence will be sent there along with their families and their UK citizenship revoked in favour of Pakistani citizenship. The cost of running such a prison would be far less than here and at the end we have rid ourselves of some rather nasty criminals too.

      Those who cannot tolerate freedom but claim it for themselves as a right should also be given a choice, accept it or return to a country which acknowledges your hate of others and murders them.

        “France’s Macron asks Muslim leaders to back ‘republican values’ charter”
        “French President Emmanuel Macron has asked Muslim leaders to agree a “charter of republican values” as part of a broad clampdown on radical Islam.”
        Last November……..Macron ‘has got some’, but has Bo Jo got “British values?” Freedom of speech?
        Great Britain would be a much better country if those that did not like it, just quietly left.
        I can see trouble ahead .

          We will be fighting Muslims in this country within 10 year taffman!

          They just need a few more thousands of boatloads to get it in place.

          It’s a Muslim plan working out.


        • Yasser Dasmibehbi says:

          Quite right Taffman.

          I see the bad moon a-rising.
          I see trouble on the way.

          The trouble is not enough people do. As an occasional visitor to the UK even I can see it what is going on.
          There’s a bad moon on the rise to be sure.
          And it is crescent shaped.

      This teacher emulated the French teacher who was murdered. The murder led France to virtually on the war path. They are not backing down. In fact Macron is requesting Imams to accept the French constitution- Secular state.

      Its unlikely our government will ever go that way. More likely the Road to Greater Appeasement.


    • Zelazek says:


      I won’t be signing this petition. The Batley Grammar School students say that neither they nor their suspended teacher support Islamophobia.

      Well, I support Islamophobia, if what they mean by that term is fear and hatred of Islam. Islamophobia, for anyone who values freedom, is the natural and logical response to Islam.

      It is said that the teacher did not support the Islamophobic cartoons. Well, I doubt then that he has ever taught his charges that Islam has never renounced the ideology of violent jihad or the subjugation of non-Muslims.

      What I would say to the students is that this teacher was miseducating you. Islam has a doctrine of violence towards unbelievers and you should reject the pious fiction that it is a religion of peace. You ought to be able to draw this conclusion for yourselves from the simple fact that your teacher has had to go into hiding.

      Islam does not belong in Britain.

    I want to take a hard hearted look at the Uighurs and China tension .
    First is ; what’s in it for us ? Will we be thanked , remembered, honoured if we entangle ourselves in this ?

    Second ; what are other countries doing about it ? Not the usual – us , USA , France , Australia etc . What about Brazil and all the Latin American countries doing , Philippines , African countries, India , and the Middle East and North African countries doing ?

    Thirdly , and this is is a difficult one : is China right ?
    A) because we can see how some Muslims act if they get bolshie in any country ( Batley now! ) , moving from victims to demanders to terrorist .
    B) The Chinese authorities know their country? If democracy was introduced it would not lead to a happy prosperous, tolerant , multi racial , multi ethnic , diverse open society but civil war , atrocities, ethnic cleansing and cost to everyone.?

    The West allowed China to join the WTO at the beginning of this century. It was the usual pathetic delusion the Powers That Be have about everyone. — that everyone wants to be like them . If we allow them into our fold they will become just like us , thought the West PTB , and embrace democracy, rule of law , openness and accountability.
    Only China didn’t. A few saw why , like President Trump , but most of the West’s PTB are just too stupid.

    And seeing the way the West is going about democracy , rule of law , openness and accountability I don’t see why the Chinese should be bothered.


    • Thoughtful says:

      “I want to take a hard hearted look at the Uighurs and China tension
      First is ; what’s in it for us ? ”

      If by us you mean senior European politicians then there’s a great deal of Middle Eastern oil money in it for them

      Why aren’t other countries doing the same? Simple, the Arabs aren’t paying them!

      You saw President Sarkozy Jailed for taking bribes from the Arabs, you saw the King of Spain exiled for taking an alleged £100 Million from Saudi, and Belgiums PM forced to resign over similar accusations.

      Why is it so hard for people to accept British politicians are now every bit as corrupt as other Europeans, especially given the poverty levels of pay they receive.

        The Reform Party is now the country’s only salvation.


        • Yasser Dasmibehbi says:

          Taffman, now that Nigel Farage is no longer the leader of Reform, I will endorse your comments about the Reform Party. It is a sensible way to go.
          Farage is still a member and connected to it so they have still got his amazing skill and dash. As I have said in the past Farage would make an excellent Sir Lancelot but not such a good King Arthur.
          The Reform Party will be the nearest thing to populist party that will be on the ticket in Hartlepool and the Regionals, and it is vital they get support. I hope Richard Tice stands and takes that seat from Labour.


    • taffman says:

      Batley – aaaah, I remember the days when Batley was famous for its Variety Club, with top liners regularly appearing, and when both men and women took a pride in their appearance for a night out. Now those club nights have long gone, and replaced by……. well need I say more ?

      Communism And Islam – Rock and a Hard place. I dont want us to
      be anywhere near. .

      When Islam gets the upper hand – communists/atheists are put up against the wall. MO, first Atheists then Idolators, Jews, Christians. This is what the Uighurs were doing until recently to communists.

      Now Communists have the upper hand, in the sense that the USA is now in ICU, and the Chinese sense they have a window of opportunity.

    She was quite obviously a model and the most unlikely gardener you would ever see but they obviously seem to think we are all hoodwinked by that In the great reset cause.

    It is just plain a ridiculous pantomime and rather insulting. BBC! We just want honesty and gardening for F**c sake! Keep your woke shit for BBC 1.

      If Honest Joe could be relied upon to repeat, let alone understand the word, someone might point out to him the degree to which primogeniture influenced so many Irish to seek a new life in the States.
      History can be so easily adapted to suit the narrative – especially of late with so many politically prostituted experts on hand to re-write hard facts. In this case it’s the Brits, or more properly Bastard English who now carry the burden of responsibility for what to a large degree was a home-grown Irish problem, exacerbated by the Catholic church in encouraging and frequently forcing ever larger families.
      But don’t tell Boston, or the IRA because they won’t believe you. And you’d be a lying English bastard if you tried.


    • Eddy Booth says:

      I think the point was, some names had numbers on them, indicating pre planned questions only from the most friendly reporters


      • richard D says:

        …and they were probably numbered in order, so that his crib cards responded to the questions to be put by the numbered joournalists.

        If Trump had been caught out like this, we would have heard nothing but criticism of him, his health, his grasp of the subjects, etc., etc. But If Biden does it, then he’s clearly just ‘well-prepared’.

        The hypocrisy is great with these ones…and, of course, the BBC just jogs along with the likes of CNN, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, and uncle Tom Cobley and all. Just the kind of balanced reporting we can expect from it.


    • JohnC says:

      The point they are deliberately avoiding is that these notes show Joe is not active in his role as President. It is evidence he is just a front man being told what to say.
      The Guardian is a badge of disgrace for me now. If anyone uses one of their articles to back up their opinion, I immediately dismiss them as the kind of Left Wing hypocrite I have learned to despise.
      Saves a lot of time.


      • Scroblene says:

        John, ‘The First Law of Scrobs’, which is to believe the opposite to the borrocks the awful bbbc spout, has a natural progression to be applied to the dreadful guardian, which is unquestionably the worst rag on the shelves these days!

  10. AsISeeIt says:

    In a week when the BBC led the mainstream media in hardly bothering to mention that government had extended measures allowing restrictions on our freedoms to be extended for… wait for it… another six months…

    And met the half-baked totalitarian notion that Britons may soon be oblidged to show their personal medical records, just to gain admittance to pubs, clubs, sports venues etc… with hardly a murmour of disapproval.

    In this same week the BBC suddenly joins the US Democrat Party up in arms against a new electoral law in the State of Georgia requiring some ID in order to get a postal vote. One might have thought clearing up irregularities in the US electoral system would be rather a good idea to avoid future claims of conspiracy and cheating? Apparently not. And apparently requirements that citizens provide ID before exercising democratic rights is racist and Jim Crow 2.0.

    I’ll bear that in mind when I’m next required to give my ID. I’ll do a Sasha Baron Cohen: “Is it ‘cos I is black?”

    Speaking of which: ‘Clive Myrie: New host of Mastermind on racism, quizzes and jazz‘ – the ‘i’ newspaper there detailing our Clive’s specialist subjects.

    I guess we can look forward to some jazzing up of the tired old played out BBC quizz format with an extra twist to specialist subjects: The life and works of Gilbert & Sullivan and racism; Racism and the life-cycle and habits of the honey-bee; and perhaps, The history of Lancashire County Cricket Club and racsim.

    I’ll pass.

    I will say this, all that tedious form filling and proof of ID, bothersome NHS apps on your phone, biometric passports, vaccination certificates, etc… that’s for the little people – not for the illegal Channel crossers of course, or indeed for our elite – in further news of Princess Diana’s second son: ‘So just how did he get a Green Card?‘ (Daily Star)

    The broadsheets are most anxious for us all to eat outside as we approach Easter: ‘Alfresco!‘ shouts the Times: ‘40 best places to eat outside (next month)‘; ‘Easter outside Xanthe Clay’s perfect al fresco feast‘ (Telegraph) – weather permitting.

    Xanthe Clay (wonderful name) is a chef so she would seem to be well qualified to inform Telegraph readers of her recipes. I’m guessing the Guardian would have preferred to have booked Cassius Clay.

    Return of the rule of six outside. What to cook, wear and talk about‘ (Guardian) – I’ve pointed this out before; how extremely pedagogic and proscriptive the Graun is with its liberal lefty readers. It would drive me mad being constantly told what to cook, wear and talk about. But I suppose it relieves the anxiety of having to think for oneself.

    Then I suppose there’s the childlike comfort that derrives from such treatment from a paternalistic authority: ‘Best Easter eggs for grown ups‘ (Guardian) – and boy, is that a factor these days. Seems we all now want to vote for a government whose main policy is to protect us.

    PM: our first taste of freedom …but be safe!‘ (Daily Mail)

    Trust the paternalists at your peril: ‘Call centre staff face being watched at home‘ (Guradian) – what, you expected to skive off doing home working and not actually have to work?

    Well, you gave up your freedoms – such as they were.

    And where’s your globalist, continent-hopping, gap year, one-world dream now?

    I thought the loss of Erasmus was the worst disaster since the plague (awkward analogy)

    Talks over expanding travel “red list”‘ (Guardian) ‘Ministers consider cancelling all summer holidays abroad. Whitehall source tells i’ – what, cancel summer holidays for themselves, or for us mugs?


    • Fedup2 says:

      ..but then you disappointed me that xanthe clay is a person . But then i wonder which type ?

      Elsewhere in the press -DT- their royal presser goes on and on and on about the American actress from ‘suits’ who bagged a ginger ex helicopter driver …

        “ginger ex helicopter driver”

        Hey, let’s have some decorum hereabouts… do him the honour of his proper title – Princess Diana’s second son

      Newspaper FACT CHECK:
      It is wrong to claim the Home Office expenses that have been circulated today are the Home Secretary’s.
      They are department wide and for vital equipment like PPE.
      It is completely false to say the Home Office has spent money on beauty products, it was PPE.
      We make no apology for buying PPE to keep our staff safe during the pandemic.
      The spending in Primark was for asylum seekers who would have not had appropriate clothing when arriving in the UK.
      We are committed to delivering the best value for money for the British taxpayer, making sure every pound is spent in the most effective way.

      AFAIK £20 would clothe one person so £5K is 250 of them

          Probably, Nibor, that the UK has the softest approach to illegal immigrants and the best benefits package in the western world for anyone who can just get their butt to our shores – few questions asked.

          And, in addition, they can then get the same package for all of their ‘relatives’, again, few questions asked.

          And when they all get here, they can recreate the $h1thole they just left, and blame it all on us, whilst demanding even more in the way of benefits and grants.

  15. Up2snuff says:

    TOADY Watch #1 – if there was a General Election tomorrow ….

    ….. Keir Starmer would have a big problem. His Shadow Chancellor, Annaliese Dodds, is incapable of listening to a question, thinking about it and replying on the same subject. There was another Labour train-wreck interview between the Bee Lady and Annaliese over what Labour thinks HMG should do about Liberty Steel. I came in half-way through when the Bee Lady was struggling to get some sense out of M/s Dodds MP (Lab).

    All Annaliese could do was to smear the Government and throw rocks in the manner of a Bristol rioter. “What would Labour do if in Government?” was Martha’s question to the Shadow Chancellor, repeated several times. Annaliese was incapable of a reply. It appears that Keir Starmer has a job that he is unhappy in, not well suited to, and with a team that is pretty hopeless.


    • theisland says:

      Starmer only ever saw the ‘job’ as a personal stepping stone to more lucrative (money) international establishment positions. Now that the CJEU has eluded him he is probably trying for the ECHR or similar.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Up2 You leave the lovely Annaliese alone – last thing needed is an opposition chancellor with any credibility … not that it makes much difference in regard to shaking the money tree now …

      Her evisceration by Brillo on the BBC before the last election must have her waking up at 4 in the morning screaming ….
      And I choked on me popcorn …


    • richard D says:

      Up2snuff…. Annaliese Dodds turns up for every interview having spent the previous couple of days memorising a series of scripts. It does not matter what the Beebunnies ask, she always starts off her answer, even if it’s a direct question about what the Labour Party’s stance on a situation is, with a phrase like “…well, what we don’t want the Conservative government to do, is….” and then simply launches into one of her pre-scripted minispeeches.

      The Beebunnies never act as if they are exasperated with this approach, never try to shut her down or talk over her (as they do with Government Ministers) and literally just feed Dodds with one opening after another to attack their political opponents.

      She can do this forever, since she just reels off a new mini-scripted attack piece, or repeats one of her previous ones – and the Beebunnies seem to just let her roll on. At the end of the interviews, you know nothing more about what the Labour Party’s view is than when she started.

      This approach meshes perfectly with Sir Kneeling-on-the-fence’s bluster – and the Beebunnies seem not to be able to handle it – or not to want to handle it. That is not, by any stretch o0f the imagination, journalism, or even reporting – it amounts to collusion by a bunch of activist newsreaders.


  16. JohnC says:

    Just been reading the outrage at the new voting laws in Georgia which I am being led to believe takes the country back to the racial segregation of decades ago and the fake President even calling them ‘an atrocity’.
    It took me quite a while before I even found out what they were complaining about. It’s only in the last bit where they even tell us what the new laws are. The rest of the article is absolutely meaningless anti-Trump rherotic.
    So the ‘atrocities’ ?.
    You need an ID to cast a postal ballot, not just a signature.
    No giving food or water to people waiting in line (but of course they can bring their own).
    That’s about it. One does wonder why they are so bothered about it ….


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      The Democratic Party is so racist that they think black people are too stupid to get voter ID.

      I’m joking of course. The Democratic Party is racist, always has been, it’s the party of the KKK. The problem they have with voter ID is that it will make it more difficult for them to steal elections. Imagine how tiresome it would be for them to get real people to vote for them, rather than just make up as many postal votes as they need?

    TOADY Watch #2 – it is what is not said in BBC News that can be very important to the listener

    Two items, same subject, this morning: in reporting another violent ‘Kill the Bill’ demo in Bristol the BBC reporter left an inconvenient gap in his narrative. Inconvenient truth, perhaps? Apparently, the Police turned out to face a demonstration breaking current Covid regulations. They allowed it to proceed until 10 p.m. when the demonstrators were instructed by the Police to disperse and go home.

    What the BBC reporter failed to mention is what happened next. He (sorry, forgotten name) merely said “the Police then went in” (not to the Police Station but the demonstrators – having waited ten minutes for them to comply) and it was at that point that the Police came under a hail of missiles including eggs and glass bottles.

    The BBC also regularly fail to mention that a previous Government also introduced draconian Police powers over demonstrations. When was it? Which political Party was in power? Oh, 2005/6. The Labour Party. That is never mentioned by the BBC in relation this new Police and Crime Bill. Funny that.

    I wonder why?


    • Fedup2 says:

      I suppose ‘Bristol ‘ is a bit of a test of the capacity of plod to deal with riots . After so long bending the knee and ‘engaging with the community ‘ they may not be able to control the groups they’ve been so eager to support ….

      … far happier giving FPNs to white people walking their dogs …

      Meanwhile in Batley they busily look the other way as they don’t want to upset the ‘third world ‘peasants intimidating a school …

      Once support / trust is gone – it’s gone …


    • richard D says:

      No-one at the the BBC ever seems to cotton on to the fact that these people who are attending a ‘purely peaceful gathering’ always seem to be fully armed to the hilt with suitable missiles, shields, weapons, etc.

      I mean, I just happened to be wandering by with this bagful of stuff including glass bottles, eggs, etc., -as you do – and somebody attacked me – honest, Mr BBC. Really strange, that, but hey, let’s move on to the ‘police brutality’ – after all, they started it, yeah ?

    US election : Sidney Powell legal case
    .. We are supposed to have diverse media
    yet so often we see the opposite
    One of them creates a sexy piece that conforms to the lib agenda and they all run with almost the same narrative.
    ..”Trump told people to drink bleach”

    This time its ‘Sidney Powell says her claims about a Dominion voting machines conspiracy were so wacky, no one can be expected to have believed them’

    Now it is true that her and Lin Wood and others seemed to swallow a wacky conspiracy theory which could have been almost designed to distract away concrete evidence of voter fraud, and split the Trump side.
    but her actual defence is not what the media stated.
    Viva Frei looked into it cos he said the media headlines seemed to break the “too weird to be true” rule.
    .. And he says her points are nowhere near that simple
    but a complex list ..so the media are being lazy to run their simplistic line.
    One of her main point is that as an attorney she is free to make extreme points when explaining her court case , and that is not normally subject to defamation law, because the claims are judged in the main court in her case.
    eg if representing someone on a murder charge
    lawyers are not sued in defamation courts later for what they did in explaining their clients cases.

    Someone here mentioned the BBC dilemma about which party to support in the forthcoming Scottish independence election ?

    Tricky – obviously – like the Russians – the BBC would like to see a ‘England -free ‘ fully sovereign Scotland – what flavour will it go with – salmond or crankie .

      Under the strange Scots proportional representation system leftover seats are left for small parties
      ..the SNP are a big party so never get them.
      but Salmond will have his people stand for them, thus sucking away seats ..and meaning unionist parties get less seats than normal.

    You really really can’t make it up….the BBC reports in depth and at length about vaccine misinformation in France…a very long tract denouncing ‘anti-vaxxers’….problem is there’s no mention of the French President…you know, the bloke who declared the AZ vaccine to be useless and dangerous….slightly more influential you might think than some other bloke in his bedroom posting to some tiny WhatsApp group or obscure internet forum.

    The vaccine misinformation battle raging in France

    ‘France is one of the most vaccine-sceptical countries in the world – fertile ground for hard-line anti-vaccine activists spreading online misinformation, writes the BBC’s specialist disinformation reporter Marianna Spring.

    In his spare time, Gilles loves to watch sci-fi films and read bandes dessinées – French comic books.

    He also helps run a conspiracy-themed French-language Facebook group with 50,000 members, many of whom spread falsehoods about coronavirus.

    He became a member just after the start of the pandemic, almost a year ago. ‘

    Giles gets vilified but nowhere does Macron get a name check…nor indeed Merkle or the EU itself get named despite having spread the doubts so effectively.


    • Beltane says:

      And the BBC will also omit to add that a high percentage of the ‘French’ population have been told that piggy by-products are an integral part of the vaccine.
      This will have no bearing or influence on the situation and it’s simple racism – or religionism? – to suggest otherwise.

    BBC licence fee payers are covering Martin Bashir’s legal costs Licence fee payers are footing Martin Bashir’s legal bill over allegations he lied and cheated to secure his interview with Princess Diana more than 25 years ago…

    Well they would as it reflects badly on the BBC . Deny everything has been the BBC motto of public service for at least forty years. Tax fiddles, pay fiddles, sex offenders, you name it and the BBC deny it to the courts then quietly pay off the accusers when it looks like a lose situation. Very few win against the BBC I may add. They pay millions to lawyers – to defend the BBC. They (BBC) can afford it, the TV license will pays for it all, and it has -so far.



  23. pugnazious says:

    Glad to see the BBC taking claims of the sexual abuse of young girls seriously…but then it would leap in with both feet on this one…the girl setting the narrative is black, private schools are being targeted for blame and she starts out with the claim that all men are rapists in effect. The BBC would just love all that….not so much when thousands of young white girls were being abused and raped by Pakistani Muslims.

    Also glad to see the BBC once again going to rent-an-islamist ‘MEND’ for quotes on Batley Grammar…Mend advising the ‘protestors’….though ‘extremists’ verging on terrorists might be a better description of the protestors as their actions are designed to spread fear and the very real threat to the teacher…intended to silence anyone else who might dare to show such pictures or indeed criticise Islam.

    And naturally the Islamist Warsi gets a say…here she is on Twitter getting her knickers and her facts in a twist…fully supports the teacher and freedom of speech but….

    David Baddiel tweets…

    Warsi replies…

    I’m pretty sure it would have been the issue being discussed…undoubtedly a well-rounded programme of lessons that looked at all aspects of religion and how society reacts to it and how the actions of religious people shape our views of that religion.

    Warsi of course was the one who wanted to disarm Israel and give arms to the terrorists…she also said we must allow the extremists to talk as they represent the community as well…hmmm..

    She is a long term adversary of the anti-terrorist Prevent programme and not long ago was agitating for the government to engage with Muslim groups that were considered ‘beyond the pale’…presumably those such as Cage, MPACUK and the MCB. She suggested that by not engaging with such groups the government was disengaged with the Muslim community….she was saying that these groups represent the Muslim community then?
    As Douglas Murray said…

    ‘It is striking that in the past the people who have sought most publicly for the policy to be scrapped are those who quite simply do not want Britain to have a counter-radicalisation strategy because they themselves favour the radicals or are radicals themselves.’

    Perhaps, as Murray also said, we need less Islam…cue outpouring of outrage from the Islamist Warsi.

    I have just survived the 1 p.m. News and Any Questions on BBC R4. It is interesting that the BBC newsreaders appear to be having problems with the name of Alex Salmond’s new political Party?

    Perhaps the dreaded predictive text is rearing its head but the newsreader at 1 p.m. News and the 2 p.m. Bulletin refered to it as the Alaba Party. Perhaps Predictive Text keeps coming up with Ali Baba on the BBC computers? Or could it be that the BBC wish to have a wee sneer at a competitor to the SNP in the same way Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty sneered at the Union flag on BBC1 TV?


  32. Foscari says:

    One of the main features on the BBC website is a recording
    of a phone call between a fraudster and a BBC reporter.
    I am amazed that BIG BROTHER from the BBC diversity
    department allowed this to be featured!
    The fraudster who has an Indian sub continent English
    accent or is con man trying to sound like Gupta from the
    film North West Frontier or a punka wallah from ” It
    aint half hot mum” said that he was from a court in London
    and suggested to the reporter that he paid a £1700 fine
    on line or he could go to court , but it would cost him
    a lot more.
    To be honest it one of the best bits of humour I have
    heard since It aint half hot mum. The only difference being
    that not in a million years would the BBC transmit an edition
    from the series. And if you want to see IS Johar in his
    brilliant portrayal as Gupta the train drive in North West
    Frontier for which he should of been nominated for an
    Academy Award , don’t expect the BBC to show it again , it’s
    too politically incorrect!

      The one on the left reminds me of a horse I fed many many years ago.


    • StewGreen says:

      It’s not easy to find the actual clip, but here it is 5 mins, inside another US show
      #1 The irony is the last speaker says ‘what is wrong with Piers is that he stormed off, instead of discussing it in a civilised way like we are doing”
      ..and that is followed by the show storming away from Sharon Osbourne.

      #2 Osbournes argument is if I am defending my friend that is a normal thing that doesn’t make me a racist
      A witchburning journalist Yashar Ali then went away and dug up an old clip where Osbourne said Meghan in a sense is not black, cos everyone seeing her thinks she is white…which is surely a fair introductory point, before you get into deeper things that of course her children could be dark skinned.
      So once the journalist hyped that clip they built a witchburning bonfire and put Sharon Osbourne on the top.

      The show looks dire anyway.


    • Swelter says:

      The one on the left is that Dwain Dibbly ?


    • JohnC says:

      I found this bit particularly relevant:
      Osborne said she ‘had let her “fear and horror of being accused of being racist take over”.’
      ‘Fear and Horror’. Not that she might be racist but that she was ACCUSED of being racist.
      That’s what the Left have done to our society. It’s fascist whatever way you look at it. No wonder they keep redefining the word so it doesn’t include themselves.

    Just for once could the BBC admit they got things wrong? Headline in Saturday’s Telegraph ‘Wards full of children’ claim was misleading, the BBC admits. Well it would appear they sort of admit they got it wrong but still don’t give all the facts.

    The BBC had Laura Duffel, a matron at Kings College, London on Radio 5 Live saying that she had a whole ward of children with covid and more coming in. A listener complained the show spread misinformation. The Executive Complaints Unit concluded the programme makers ‘had not sought to establish the number of children involved’.
    The BBC’s justification was that ‘the interviewee had been speaking on the basis of very small numbers in her own hospital’. But Laura Duffel wasn’t identified in the Telegraph as the Left Wing Activist and Chair of the ISEL Branch Team of the Royal College of Nursing, which she could have been. And of course the BBC didn’t admit they could have highlighted her politics in the same way as they identify people belonging to ‘right wing think tanks’ etc.

    Here’s one from the archives – my BBC Radio 4 Brexit-themed shipping forecast:

    Now we go over for the Brexit Forecast issued by the BBC on behalf of Remainers at 25 hundred hours, on today, Monday 1st April.
    The general synopsis: Prospects: Low for North West Europe, 2019, losing its identity.
    Previously Fair Isle: Outlook Very Poor. Lands End.
    Depression in Sole. Traditions, Democracy, English Common Law: rapidly going west.
    General recession projected: Cape Fear.
    New High expected Brussels at the same time. German Might.
    Westminster, Holyrood: showers.
    Fastnet, Fisher: quotas decreasing.
    Customs border: Irish Sea.
    Migrants expected inshore: Warnings – Plymouth, Thames, Humber, Dover, Tyne – increasing. Good. Not Wight. Good. Age range males expected 13 or 14 – increasing 45. Generally poor at first. Islam, occasionally moderate. Warning: outbursts of cyclonic. Boomer automatic. Clouds rising. Silly. Previously calm. Heavy concentrations. No go areas, south easterly spreading north.
    Pensioners moving south to Biscay.
    BBC backing EU. Brexit representation: Rockall


  38. AsISeeIt says:

    Middle-of-the-road listeners will be leaving us now for a few moments as we virtue signal an urgent Brexit warning for shipping.
    Negotiation outlook for May: Moderate or rough. Clouds gathering. Storms, thunder, lightning, gales and Tory splits ahead. Overall depression. Previously delayed recession now immanent.
    Tailbacks predicted: Dover: 30 miles long and rising. Good.
    Cliff Edge: emphasised. Sir Cliff rescue helicopter – no overfly alert warning in force.
    Transatlantic disappointment palpable. Employment numbers rising. Present incumbent still deplorable.
    Trafalgar: Square, patriotic monuments declining.
    Tahrir Square: Faeroes. Arab Spring: previous bright outlook projections reversed – becoming choppy. Heading west rapidly. Strongly advise dress moderate.
    Southern Powerhouse, Northern Outhouse.
    Bill Bailey Trough. Sandi Toksvig, Low, Viking. Trough.
    Pay visibility foggy. Outsourced. Ronald MacDonald’s Way.
    Carrie Gracey, Forties, far east returning, doing Rockall, turning rough. Fastnet – Six figures.
    Savile, Dogger, BBC spokesman?: Now just off South East Iceland low visibility and disappearing later.
    Record breaking temperatures: FitzRoy Castle.
    Minor warming a few degrees – Coastal panic stations.
    Wind turbines proliferating both on and off shore, cost very high. Fair?
    Advise switching to another Channel Light programme. Thames : now defunct. Sky: moving left rapidly.
    And that’s the end of the warning.

    Like him or not, Alex Belfield is currently highlighting the worrying collusion between the rotten BBC and at least some police forces.

    Whether because the police are simply star-truck by the BBC, or they’ve undergone Common Purpose indoctrination together, or the Old Boys’ network is in play, or because the politicised police increasingly share their wokeish values – they appear to be engaged in some sort of deliberate intimidation.

    Some admins on this site seem to object to Voice of Reason videos being posted, so here’s a link to the YouTube channel for those interested to follow fast moving developments.



    • Yasser Dasmibehbi says:

      Vlad, I watch a lot of what Alex Belfield puts out not because I like him but because I like what he is doing to the BBC. Let’s face it, he is bashing them well. We are in a war with the loony Left which we are still a long way from winning. The stakes are very, very high.
      In a war (or political) situation the astute strategist looks for allies and not more enemies. Amongst allies, some will not be very effective, some may be temporary, or partial, or sporadic. The wise thing to do is take them when you can get them. Against the BBC we need all the allies we can get at the moment. So I for one recognise Belfield as an ally but acknowledge he is a vulgarian and a bit of a drama Queen and not everyone’s cup of tea, including mine.
      My rule in politics is if somebody’s merits outweigh their demerits they are worth having. Should the balance change, then drop them.

    Batley school
    Talk Radio at 10:30am had a very civilised discussion
    The Imam was way more liberal than the white-Muslim protectors are racebaiters we get on the BBC
    He said right out that bringing mobs down to a school is not the way to protest
    And that his only gripe was that it would have been better to describe the cartoon rather than use it.
    (Of course he could be doing Taquiaa )

    Then the Free Speech Union woman made fantastic context points … video of her part
    #1 The murdered teacher in France had not used the cartoon it was a false accusation

    #2 In Batley the students were warned they could leave beforehand
    #3 The same lesson plan had been used before
    (#4 AFAIK an Asian teacher was also present throughout and didn’t move to stop anything)

    Wow the Talk Radio Poll is 93% saying the police should have stopped the school demo
