    Now I’ll fess up to being an enthusiastic royalist.
    So very sorry though not surprised that Prince Philip has died and happy to see appropriate programmes on TV.
    BUT……..is it really necessary for the BBC to show the same continual programmes on BBC1, BBC2, and the BBC news channel for hours and hours, most of which have run on repeats and repeats of the same historic coverage on about a 45 minute loop?

    Meanwhile…they have suspended BBC4 for the evening.

    It’s absolutely ridiculous.
    Are they trying to bore us into republicanism?

    RIP Philip, Prince of Wales, consort to the Queen for 68 years and with only a tiny drop of British blood in his body, an exemplary Briton.

    The BBC have cancelled all programs to sycophantically pretend they liked him and to highlight an extended view of Hugh Edward’s rapidly deteriorating plastic surgery.

    No doubt in 5 years or so the BBC will produce a biopic of the ‘ Life and Times of ‘Philip Duke of Edinburgh ‘with Lenny Henry in the title role.

    I learned on the BBC that the Archwell Foundation had this on the website re Prince Philip

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE…YOU WILL BE GREATLY MISSED.

    There was no ‘with great sadness’ etc. Do I see the Markle woman’s hand or just the Saturday girl at the PR company?

    So far, I think the BBC are doing quite well about the Duke. I really do think the female ‘journalist’ at either Windsor or Buckingham Palace who talked about people ‘celebrating ‘ elderly relations’ deaths, didn’t really mean it.

    Mind you I haven’t watched much BBC today so I guess there will be some of their usual standards.

      This couldn’t possibly be, could it, a Megan Markle insult flung at the Queen, using the death of Prince Philip, after the contretemps last month about selfless service to the nation of the Royal Family – which she took as a personal reference to her lack of commitment to being of service to the nation when she married into the Royal Family ?

          NCBBC is right. The Americans say “thank you for your service” to anyone in the military, so clearly the Sussex’s PR machine have their name written all over this. Hapless is just being used to provide offspring, so she can continue her life of luxury forever – even when she has jettisoned him.

      I thought the Quilliam Foundation passed on years ago.

      The reason it was created was to muddy the waters, and convince people that Islam was like any other religion- some good and some bad etc. After all the revelations of Jihad and mass rapes in the country, long suppressed by the government, it was imperative to create another more peaceful Islam. Quillam took the heat off the government.

      In that aim, the government with Q’s help , managed to calm the situation. So its surprising that it has remained alive.

      I suppose the absence of Donald Trump may have something to do with it. Its quite likely that Pres Donald Trump would have put far more restrictions on Muslims if he was POTUS, thus requiring Quillam.

    @Fed The troll complained someone deleted his posts
    Well what’s the purpose of his posts ?
    Surely *canvas spoiling* and intimidation to intimidate people from posting herefreely.
    … A form of vandalism I guess.

    So he uses the principle of free speech, yet disrupts everyone else’s free speech.
    Like the bully in the sandpit stamping over everyone else’s sand castles.

    ==================

    One cannot reason, with the unreasonable nor have fair debate with the unfair.
    The last time he turned up to say three months back I had mistakenly defamed Whoopi, after I shared a plausible pic I didn’t know had been photosopped
    He followed that by a few minutes later deliberately defaming Martin Sellner
    (I guess on the lefty logic that if someone disagrees with your politics you are allowed to smear them as a monster )

    This time he
    #1 Flat out denied my hypothesis, but gave no evidence
    #2 Then moved on to what aboutery
    #3 He also seems to deliberately space things out so they fill the page
    As you pointed out he mostly avoids answering questions
    In this case cos his contradiction is a falsehood and Stormzy’s book brand does not seem to publish any white writers.

          The monarchs have been a mixed lot, which is an inevitable result of an hereditary system. The institution is greater than any of its occupants, and the benefits outweigh transient disappointments, should they occur. And then there are the outstanding ones, like the present Queen and her late husband, who are a bonus. I think Charles will actually be quite ok; he has certainly had a long preparation for the role.

            I wish I shared your optimism Banania. There is a reason for a woman of 95 and her late 99-year old consort to have retained the throne and its support for longer than perhaps commonsense and a natural desire to step back after a lifetime of service might suggest.
            For just one example, the absurd vanity of Poundbury – our King-in-waiting’s Brighton Pavilion in spades – shows all too clearly how ephemeral and indulgent his whims can be, and at a personal level the whims are legion.

      Personally I feel sorry for Old Joe China. He didn’t want to run for President he just wanted a quiet life enjoying the millions he made from bribes when he was VP and trying as best he could to cope with his accelerating mental decline. But all those Democrats who were guilty of high treason in their never ending plots to remove President Trump, needed him because he was the only one they thought could stop Trump and they were right, even with Dominion switching millions of votes they only just made it. I’m sure that part of the deal is that Joe can stand down before year end. By the next election they will already have fixed that one too!

    Headline:
    ‘Derek Chauvin trial: Police restraint killed George Floyd, expert says’
    Down in the weeds:
    He said Mr Floyd’s death was due to his interaction with law enforcement, but said his drug use and underlying heart disease also played a role.
    Headline could also have been:
    ‘Floyd may still be alive without his drug use and underlying heart disease’
    The BBC have now pushed the boundary to where they can make a headline which is absolutely misleading as long as they include other relevant information which contains the bits they didn’t tell you. Usually somewhere near the end so only those who read the full article will see it.
    It’s dishonest and ethically only a hairs breadth from outright lies.

    A much poorer vintage is likely to follow

    The FT carries a report this morning which hints that global warming may not be the next big threat to humanity which some would have us believe: ‘French wine harvest in peril as blast of “winter frost” withers spring vines

    Interesting use of scare quotes there. I can see the logic – winter frosts ought to stay in the winter where they belong rather than trespass on the spring months.

    The FT also tells the truth about recent rioting in Ulster: ‘Teenagers as young as 13 have been arrested… Community leaders… [have blamed] “recreational rioting” for youths bored by lockdown’

    Reasonable use of quotation marks there.

            Fed,

            Still going on and spreading, it’s not just Belfast, although we often have the same issue with Belfast here as you on the mainland have with London – as far as the media are concerned if it didn’t happen there it didn’t happen at all. This all kicked off in Derry a fortnight ago and has spread to include incidents in Ballymena, Coleraine, Portadown, Newtownabbey, and throughout Belfast, not just in one specific area.

            And while you’re right about it being “feral” children, I wouldn’t use the term “peasant” myself, I suppose we’re lucky that the adults haven’t got directly involved yet. Although if the stench from the rotten and continued, and of course unchallenged by the media, moral grandstanding of Michelle O’Neill and her Sinn Fein cohorts gets any stronger it might not be too long. Some of her comments to her tame journalists over the past couple of days have been pathetically and brazenly hypocritical, merely fanning the flames.

            I could be wrong, but I don’t believe that the violence will lead to armed conflict but I do think it will become more intense and widespread and will occur more regularly as the weather warms and tensions rise. And they will rise. On top of all this, there’s the centenary celebrations of the founding of Northern Ireland to come in less than a month which doesn’t bode well, I can’t see the Republicans not wanting to join in then.

            As our elected representatives demonstrate how totally out of touch they are, especially the conniving Conservative party, it continues to baffle me as to how much influence politicians and church leaders think they have in situations like this. The people involved in this do not give a flying as to what these supposed “leaders” think, they are increasingly irrelevant, especially those from opposing communities that the bBbc seem to invariably ask to comment and encourage to offer their ill-informed advice.

                Fed,

                There isn’t the same “romaticism” attached to Loyalism as there is to Republicanism, the Catholic community are considered to own the arts in Northern Ireland so tales of resistance, mournful ballads and stirring rebel anthems are their thing. For many years, and I am r course generalising to some extent here, the Protestant majority were in the main more concerned with working and in trying to make Northern Ireland work. There was no “cause” to further or to get behind as a community.

                The sense of oppression and of victimhood, not entirely without validity in some areas but there was never the apartheid system that many would have you believe, that spurred many Catholics to push themselves academically simply wasn’t felt by the Protestant communities who kept the country going and who traditionally worked in industry and manufacturing. The semi-skilled and unskilled jobs simply do not exist anymore and many of those those on offer have been taken by a cheaper Eastern European workforce who have moved into the traditionally Protestant areas.

                I’m no expert and I’m aware that this is not about the bBbc, although it goes some way to explain how there are so many apparent Nationalists who now work at BBC NI and their apparent agenda. Take out the the religious aspect of the issues in Northern Ireland at the minute and there are obvious parallels between here and what is happening in British society in general.

                For Nationalists and Republicans read Socialists and Labour, for Unionists read conservatives, Protestant working class the traditionally working-class areas of the North of England and the inner cities under pressure demographically and without their traditional employment opportunities, it goes on.

                  A brilliant book by Ruth Dudley Edwards (RC from the Irish Republic) “The Faithful Tribe” is a sympathetic study of the NI protestants that she wrote after living there for a while getting to know them. I think Laurens Van de Post also wrote about them, comparing them to the Boers and the Russians, all living in fear of encirclement.

              A recent treat was a 7-minute diatribe from failed Newsnight presenter James O’Brian, based on the absolute inevitability of the riots thanks to Brexit.
              In his so typical mixture of arrogance and condescension, O’Brian listed all the factors which conspired to ensure that riots would kick off, and yet sadly – and again typically – omitted to mention the very probable EU involvement, which would have tended to weaken the brilliance of his presenting skills.
              Following the levels of fury and impotence created within the EU by the failure of their vaccination policies and attempts to upset the successful UK program together with the spiteful, juvenile, erratic and counter-productive Astra-Zeneca farce, fomenting unrest within NI seems a logical step.
              After all, it was the EU’s flagrant and unprincipled use of the potential instability of the NI situation which delayed and confused the whole Brexit process for years.
              But don’t tell James. He’d really rather not know.

    If nothing else, the BBC’s panic scheduling response to yesterdays news seems to indicate that they are well aware of a growing section of public dissatisfaction with their biased and twisted output. However, so great is their hubris (how like the EU!), that normal service will swiftly resume.Well, hopefully so as pride tends to come before a fall. Letting them wallow in their own muck may well have a positive outcome. Watching your enemy self- destruct. Such sweet schadenfreude !

      Nice if true Jack, but I fear the swamped coverage on both BBC channels is based as much on savings as on loyalty.
      By providing BBC1 and BBC2 total coverage from programming largely archived with current voice over links, think of the airtime and creation savings.
      Delayed programs can fill slots for days and weeks to come – and the money saved can all find its way to the pension fund.
      Its another win-win for the nation’s broadcaster.

    Wokemob pile on against David Jason
    after he tells a Prince Philip story where someone called a man a gorilla
    Everyone assuming David Jason was talking about the Queen talking about a black man.
    The video he references is from 1969, and is her talking about when the Home Secretary told her a gorilla was coming in.
    The “gorilla” in question was US Ambassador Walter Annenberg, a white man.

    Who are the racists ?
    The guys that assume when someone describes an ambassador as a gorilla, the ambassador must be a black man ?

    Andrew Neil skewers the “Gammon” issue
    Under Labour organised laws calling someone “Gammon” is definitely a Hate Crime
    cos the definition is that if someone even a third party FEELS it’s racist then it is.
    Gammon is applied only to pink skinned people only not black
    And it’s no use saying it means “a state of mind” not a race, cos that is what old racist used to do, to justify the N-word
    “Oh N-word doesn’t mean all blacks it means the ones that rob and rape, those guy that have the thug state of mind”

    Very moving tribute to Prince Philip by the Royal Navy: a synchronised 41 gun salute from all Devonport, Portsmouth, Gibraltar and ships at sea. My father, who once met Philip when they were both stationed in Gibraltar was very moved, as was I.

    It was somewhat marred by the usual BBC ineptitude. How can a reporter be standing in Devonport naval base, which is in Plymouth, and inform that us he is in Portsmouth? This wasn’t just a casual slip either, they have been pretty consistent in confusing the two over the years. Try looking at a map, BBC, where you will see that Portsmouth is around 120 miles from Devonport! But even without a map, I cannot see how anyone can travel all the way to one city and really mistake it for another. And just what have the BBC got against Plymouth anyway?

    And that Neil line Dovetails into Priyamvada Gopal’s “White Lives don’t matter”
    She justified her deleted tweet by saying she “whiteness” means a state of mind not skin colour
    But she would never say the same for blackness.
    “Civility absolutely means whiteness and by ‘civil society’ they mean white society.”
    “treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity”

    She claims by “white lives” she means Englishness
    Carl says that becomes common law and civility
    Callum says Gopal is pretending to be sophisticated yet she is just as bigoted as the KKK

    Now she is part of the backlash against Brian Sewell’s report

    In the last thread I mentioned a reliable source advising vaccinations were going to be down as some was to be sent overseas.

    Yesterday Mrs S did some volunteering at the local health centre. The Lead Partner advised there will be no first doses next week and that the mass vaccination centre will close for the weekend. When asked what was happening to vaccinations, the GP said ‘abroad’.

    I wonder if the government will be publicising this inconvenient truth. Or indeed the BBC?

      On thursday – if i recall – there were about 100k done with around 90k second vax taking total people vax to about 35 million .,,

      The government deserves an urgent question on this as it goes against the ‘UK first ‘policy .

      The UK taxpayer paid for the vax and we deserve some version of the truth ..,

    A thought has come to mind recently over just what was known about the state of Prince Philips health when he entered hospital for the last time.

    Harry & Megain were asked to dealy the Oprah interview with regard to Prince Philips health, and I wonder if it was known at that time that his death was close.

    If this is the case and that this was made known to the pair then it beggars belief that they would have gone ahead in the knowledge Prince Philips death was so close and could have happened at any time.

    I’ve resorted to watching Netflix films all afternoon (and possibly evening). The questioning of passers by, by outside reporters on all channels are beyond puerile. Jane Hill on the Beeb was painful watching, she stuttered and stammered, not knowing what to ask next, and might as well resorted to reciting Hey Diddle Diddle for all we cared. Then there is the interviewing of teenagers for God’s sake ! – “oh yeah, he stood by the Queen for all those years” – give me strength.

    Seems obvious that the BBC had a mission to be beyond criticism with the level of coverage ….. but I maintain my forecast that it will return to type fairly soon .

    I’m betting with myself as to which Labour ( female ) MP says something offensive – I reckon Jess Phillips of the coloured – on bail – Claudia one are joint favourites . Bad state of mind to have but seen it before .

    As for Phillips – they’d need a big gag to keep her quiet …

    As for Netflix – I gave that up for April and have seen the offerings – I won’t miss anything …

      We don’t have live TV (and don’t miss it), but I am guilty of regularly scrolling the BBC website in the vain hope of finding some ‘news’ worth reading.

      I can’t help feeling the BEEB have been on their absolute best behaviour re: Prince Philip, so far… but, they’re just itching to say something which they know they really, really shouldn’t… and that itch isn’t going away, and is only getting worse…

      How long will it last? Who will be the one to finally take the plunge? My money’s on Mateless.

      It’s like taking your young kids to see great granny in hospital, getting treated for cancer, you just know they really want to say something about where her hair’s all gone, they know it’s wrong (you’ve told them not to mention it)… but, they just can’t help themselves…

      Fed, it already has. Michael Martin, the Irish Taoiseach, is first up on BBC R4 News after Prince Philip, calling for ‘no return to the troubles of the past’. Unfortunately, his predecessor did his best – with Tony Blair’s and John Major’s help – to ensure that would come about if the UK public voted the wrong way in the EU Referendum.
