    Guardian Opinion
    Is a party that sells police stations to criminals so very tough on crime?
    Nick Cohen

    Is a party, which imported over three million examples of the most intolerant and murderous organisation in history [Islam], into the UK, in a position to lecture anyone about anything, ever?


    When the intention behind these “imports” was to buy votes from the imports at whatever cost to the indigenous taxpayer does this justify Labour policy?


    Having “rubbed” the noses of the British “in it” is the Labour Party showing any signs of repentance?


    When the imports, who have nothing but contempt and hatred for the British, started gang raping hundreds of thousands of white children, as permitted by “their” laws, did the Labour Party admit it had made a mistake?


    Is the policy of the Labour party to pretend the imports, the rapes, and the concomitant murders did not happen. In fact as far as possible to conceal the crimes of “their” criminals, to even deny they were crimes?


    Did the Labour party show anything but delight when “their” imports began selecting parliamentary “Labour” candidates who should not be allowed within light years of anything Democratic?


    When the intolerant, gang raping, murderous, imports then developed their own version of “Democracy” called multiple voting whenever, whereever possible, was the Labour Party secretly delighted but publicly “horrified”?


    Is this the same Labour Party that for decades was run by Communists, admirers of Lenin and Stalin?

    The same party whose political organs, the Guardian and the BBC, have been heading hard left for decades?

    Organs whose hatred of and contempt for, anything European is proudly displayed 24/7/265?

    Whose promotion of anything and anyone, non-white and non European, has no untruthful, temporal or financial limits?

    Who regard white children as cannon fodder who can be physically raped whenever and wherever Muslims so choose?

    Whose “educational policy” is to promote any and all perversions, not just sexual?

    Whose “history” lessons consist of 30 “2 minute hates” every hour, decrying everything our ancestors worked, fought and died for?

    Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes and yes.


    • Beltane says:

      Apologies for nit-picking, and with you 100% on this LastChance – but much as they might wish to bring elections, ramadan and citizenship ever closer, even the Labour Party couldn’t lop 100 days off a normal year.

    “Unrest as police shoot black man near Minneapolis.”

    The BBC are in their happy place again – bless!

    And happy to pour petrol on an already explosive situation in the US.

    Have they blamed President Trump yet – oh how they miss him


  4. Fedup2 says:

    Now that overt BBC policy is not to cater for the over 30s we can play ‘spot the rarity ‘ where anything is on which is ‘aimed at that 60 plus % of the population – I exclude – here – Dads Army – which I think it regularly puts on to keep the BBC2 figures up .


  5. Thoughtful says:

    Exactly what I said the cowardly useless incompetent Tories would do with the covids passport has actually happened already and has been blocked by both Apple and Google because it violated privacy laws, with the government wanting to know where people are.

    #PunishmentPolicing #IntimidationPolicing
    VivaFrei came up with the idea that right at the start of an event police are primed to be thugs.

    Seems to me that an issue arises
    – Then some righties do “2+2=5” thinking & put something out
    – Then some antifa take that and do their own “2+2=5” thinking & throw out the label “far right Nazis”
    They know that is not true but feel justified in hyperbole cos they are saving the world.
    They feed info to the police who add their own “2+2=5” thinking & think they are saving the world by taking a tough line.
    eg1 So police went in hard intercepting Tommy’s publisher on the motorway with armed police, even though he was innocent and there was no evidence.
    eg 2, 3, 4 Police turned up at a number on no-lefty activist’s homes, like Based Amy’s and smashed down their doors unnecessarily
    eg 5They arrested TR in Leeds
    eg 6 They go into Belfield’s house smashing down the door unnecessarily
    eg 7 Montreal they went into Rebel News hotel arrested people ..then never charged anyone cos no law had been broken.
    eg 8 Meanwhile cops went into the PTSD farm in Bath and smashed it up as if it was an ISIS training camp
    and released everyone with no charges.

    meanwhile cops primed the other way ..go soft on BLM and XR etc.


    • Doublethinker says:

      Exactly so and of course the police are just the ‘armed’ wing of the Wokists tendency, most aMPs, the judiciary , education blob, MSM andmost of our institutions are all signed up.
      Decades ago they decided to import millions of third worlders without any consultation with the electorate because they knew we would say NO. They attacked the leaders of any resistance eg Enoch Powell back in the sixties.
      Then when it became clear that there was no prospect of integration they claimed that multiracialism was good and turned a blind eye to all the mountain of evidence that it wasn’t, eg Muslim mass rape gangs. Once again they persecuted the leaders of any resistance eg TR
      Then to strengthen their hand they passed the extraordinary ‘Hate Crime’ laws which allows them to persecute anyone who they don’t like, TR again.
      Now they are actively pursuing , via cancel culture or by the police, anyone whose has ‘suspect’ thoughts let alone gives voice to those thoughts.
      The protests by BLM last summer was the start of the next phase, either you explicitly bend the knee and support them or you are cancelled or visited by the police or even attacked. If you are not with them you are against them.
      It will get much worse before it gets better , if it ever does!


      • Banania says:

        What has happened to TR? Has he given up? (Not that I would blame him if he has.)

  9. vlad says:

    There used to be a counter on this site, and I used to find it encouraging to see that it had well over 100 million views.

    Could it be brought back, for the morale of the troops (and the discomfiture of the BBC)?

      • vlad says:

        I think you’ve focused in on the wrong distinguishing feature…

        Here’s a clue: it’s not baldness and it’s not wearing specs.

    • StewGreen says:

      To be fair on Twitter you don’t see those two people
      they are cut off the bottom of the image.

      The photos on the BBC careers pages do not show a world where 43% of workers are white males
      rather they are 60% BAME 25% white female 15% white male I guess


  11. TheRebelUK says:

    Today is an important day and I read about it in the independent newspaper and some others highlighted it but the BBC havent whatsover informed us about this day. , the article is about a uk highly regarded university and covid.
    it was this: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/herd-immunity-covid-coronavirus-uk-b1828267.html

    This is highly important and headline news about how herd immunity to covid in the uk is now reached.

    Yes its finally happened, with enough vaccinations and then with other people catching it and getting natural immunity we are at that stage where we are immune. You can see why this is so important to our health and wellbeing.

    Once herd immunity is in place people no longer need to be scared, we no longer need masks or social distances. Sure people can still be socially distant if that’s what they choose but once herd immunity is in place we can go back to normal, not the new normal that the fat blond baffoon in number 10 might want on us but the normal like before covid.

    Other places in the world are already like this now, football stadiums are filling up and no masks and back to how it should be. (some places had no lockdowns at all but thats a different story, oh and one the bbc doesn’t tall about)

    So my question to all you amazing readers of this website which which we know is a bastian of hope and free speach to us all, is this.

    Considering the importance of this study and its implications I would consider this very newsworthy. So why has our state brosdcaster totally omitted it from its news website? its not even hidden it in the local section like https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/topics/cj73jx3md97t/university-college-london

    Why is the bbc not informing the population who still watch it about this critical news story?
    And probably more important why isn’t Boris who follows the science yelling us about this science?


    • The WestWyvern says:

      Rebel, to answer your question, because simply it’s not about a virus.


      • TheRebelUK says:

        Agreed west because if it was we would be back to normal now. It’s worrying when so many people are sleeping walking into a future that is bad for us all and the BBC are more than happy to facilitate it. Brainwashing is their speciality because it’s certainly not interesting TV programmes because they don’t have any

  13. Fedup2 says:

    Shirley Williams is dead . Apparently we shouldn’t talk badly of the dead – so I will reproduce this extract from Wiki about her –

    While in office between 1976 and 1979, Williams advocated the comprehensive school system and the abolition of grammar schools. As her daughter Rebecca approached secondary school age, Williams moved into the catchment area of the state-subsidised Godolphin and Latymer School (which later became private in preference to becoming a comprehensive), allowing her daughter to gain a place there.”

    Even corrupt politicians don’t live for ever .

    always that corruption eh? And now a former PM disgracefully caught with his snout in the trough .


    • vlad says:

      Yep, our Shirl ruined British education but made sure her daughter was spared the ‘benefits’ of socialist comprehensives.

      May she enjoy whatever communist hell she’s in, the great Gulag in the sky.


  14. StewGreen says:

    7:40pm Panorama investigates the scandal of our polluted rivers. Reporter Joe Crowley obtains data that reveals how some big water companies have been illegally dumping untreated sewage.

    AFAIK the water corps are on with it.
    That’s why the built the London super sewer etc.

    8:30 Fawlty Towers cancelled
    replaced with extra Eastenders

    10:45pm An hour of Khan the boxer


    • The WestWyvern says:

      They’d be better off investigating the dying rivers, caused by over extraction of water, silting up of gravel and chalk streams caused by years of bank side neglect and no summer weed cutting, the disappearing fish stocks caused by massive predation (0tters, Mink, Comorants, Eastern Europeans) and the scandal that is the Fresh Water Rod Licence that appears to be a similar tax to the one you need for your telly.


  15. Fedup2 says:

    A lot of people have complained about master chef being cancelled because some old man they’ve never heard of died –

    110,994 people – apparently .


    • Scroblene says:

      From elsewhere, apols if it’s been posted before…

      BBC has received 100,000 complaints from members of the public over its coverage of the Duke of Edinburgh’s death, according to the Sun newspaper.

      The corporation cleared its schedules to cover the news when Prince Philip died on Friday, at the age of 99.

      EastEnders and the MasterChef final were replaced by news programmes, while BBC Four was taken off air completely.

      The BBC declined to confirm the number of complaints it received. The details will officially be issued on Thursday.

      The figures are due to be included in the broadcaster’s fortnightly complaints bulletin.

      A figure of 100,000 would make the coverage of Prince Philip’s death the most complained-about piece of programming in BBC history.

      The report goes on to say

      The BBC was not alone in adjusting its schedule to reflect Prince Philip’s death, with ITV and Channel 4 both broadcasting extended news coverage.

      However, many viewers turned away as the day wore on, with ITV’s Friday night audience declining by 60% in comparison to the previous week, according to overnight figures.

      (Senora O’Blene and I gave up after twenty minutes, as the BBC production was so appalling).


  16. StewGreen says:

    Minneapolis police shooting of Daunte Wright was ‘an accidental discharge’ as police officer intended to discharge a taser
    WTF they claim the cop thought he had reason to reach for a Taser , but he reached and fired his gun instead !
    Officers had pulled Wright over for a traffic violation.

    Judge DENIES the defense’s request to sequester the jury in the #DerekChauvinTrial.
    Defense wanted the jury isolated over the police shooting of Daunte Wright in nearby


    • G.W.F. says:

      Minneapolis cop was a woman, a senior cop. A woman or a youth of…
      Who should the BBC support? Facts don’t matter.


      • StewGreen says:

        Ha none of the Twitter article uses “she” about the cop
        Instead is full of “he said” .. that is apparently quoting the police chief.

        The black Twitter narrative
        “He said they pulled him over because he had air fresheners hanging from his rearview mirror,” Daunte Wright’s mother said.
        Says the next time she saw him he was laying on the ground dead

        The police narrative is he had an outstanding warrants.
        Black Twitter ..”well it was almost nothing”

        FFS The warrant issued April 2nd after he failed to appear for court on charges of
        #1 carrying a pistol without permit
        #2 fleeing police.

        I do believe US police can be unfair to both black /white
        but I cannot stand the apparent black common habit of often massively playing down their side


      • StewGreen says:

        Ah there is a bodycam video
        A female officer is standing back as they cuff him
        then he wrenches away and slips back into the car
        Her white hands appear, holding a thing like a very small gun
        ..he drives off ..she shouts in astonishment “oh I just shot him !”


        • Eddy Booth says:

          Cop screams something like
          I’ll tase yer, I’ll tase you
          Taser! taser! taser!
          Whilst holding glock 22 or some such firearm ..


  17. chancygardner says:

    Have you noticed how much Greta is being resurrected of late? Her face is plastered all over the beeb’s web altar to her. It never changes though does it? It is like Sweden’s answer to a rip-roaring joke personified wilthin the features of this very odd young girl. The icy glare is only thinly disguised by a half-smile that says to me, “You will be exterminated!”.


    • Scroblene says:

      It’s like a stuck record, isn’t it!

      The whole subject of making money out of the weather changes has become a national sport, with every tax-funded crowd struggling to get on the bandwagon.

      The awful bbbc loves this as in their eyes, it counts as ‘news’, whereas normal citizens just get on with their lives without the advice of their ‘analysts’, ‘own experts’, ‘business’ autocue readers and other hangers-on.

      Using a silly little kid from some peculiar foreign background is just awful, and while idiots might half-believe the dross they all shriek, the majority of British citizens work their socks off to make their own families comfortable and do what normal families do.

      When the bbbc is defunded, there will be a huge sigh of relief from these hard-working people, and also pensioners who have to cough up a week’s pension to give the likes of lineker and ball such eye-watering money for such poor talent.


  18. Beltane says:

    Alec Salmond is being accused of ‘anti English bigotry’ in a Braveheart-based video created to help his Alba party make its mark in the forthcoming elections.
    Awkward little distinction for the Scotch to opt for then. Salmond’s bigotry or Sturgeon’s, it’ll probably come down to the quantity of spittle flecks produced.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Maybe theyll compete to ‘outscot’ each other . I wonder what theyll do without shetland and its ‘ oil?


  19. vlad says:

    As we know, the BBC positively drools and dotes over BLM and its founders, and is always keen to update us on their heroic struggles in the noble cause of bla ba bla.

    How very strange then that the racist beeb shows no interest at all in the story of how one BLM founder is squandering millions of dollars (donation money?) on luxurious homes for herself. Not one, not two, not three, but FOUR luxury homes, the latest in an exclusive white neighbourhood of LA. (So much for solidarity with da sistas.)


  20. vlad says:

    Nice work if you can get it.

    Marxism – doncha love it?




  21. StewGreen says:

    electricity : What a pathetic banana republic Boris has made the UK.

    He thinks we will go net zero with the help of wind power.
    Ironically we are 97% away from that
    3% now



  22. JohnC says:

    Oh dear, what a disaster the Minneapolis shooting has turned out to be for the BBC. It was a woman and she fired the wrong gun !!.
    The entire tone of the latest report has changed to be one of sympathy and ‘it was an accident’ while the policeman doing the cuffing was black.
    No BLM propaganda value in it now. That’s the last we will hear from that story.


    • JohnC says:

      This is how the BBC are reporting it now (report 30 mins old):
      ‘Tensions are high in Minnesota after the fatal shooting of a 20-year-old black man by a white police officer’
      They have the ‘accidental’ context now and deliberately failed to include it. Doesn’t fit the agenda.


  23. StewGreen says:

    Fed : One new coal power plant per week in China in 2020

    Global Energy Monitor:
    ‘In 2020, China built over 3 times as much new coal power capacity as all other countries in the world combined – equivalent of more than one large coal plant per week’


    It uses that coal-power to power factories that manufacture solar panels and wind turbine components to sell to mugs in the west.


  24. Fedup2 says:

    Thank you – I could only find the number of giga watts yoy increase . Gives me a warm feeling with all those coal burners being built – puts the crap about reducing the thermostat into perspective – burn that carbon ….

      Interesting to see today that the Irish health authorities have confirmed what has been known for 12 months that only 0.1% of Covid-19 transmissions take place outdoors.
      But’s let’s keep people indoors for months on end.


  30. JohnC says:

    Just browsing the trial for the German ‘far right’ terror plot on the BBC front page.
    What struck me as odd is how they specifically list ‘Far-right attacks in Germany’. I have only ever seen a complete list of attacks – usually after a Muslim attack where they have to highlight the far-right to try and smear them with the same blood. The Jo Cox murder is a favourite – even though if he were Muslim, it would have not been classed as a terrorist attack.
    Of course the reason is obvious. Since the first attack in the list in 2016, there have been 7 far-right attacks. In the same period, there have been 3 by the Left and 7 by Muslim’s.
    What is particularly relevant here is that those Muslims only make up 5% of the population. Also it is significant that the vast majority of the far-right attacks are consequences of the unrestricted immigration policy.
    A proper analysis of all the attacks with the causes of their root motivations would make a very interesting article. However the ‘unbiased’ BBC will never go anywhere near that.


    • StewGreen says:

      bodycount ?


      • JohnC says:

        21 for the far-right – 20 in two attacks and 14 for the Muslims.
        Something didn’t seem right about the Wikipedia page and I realise now that it is extremely unusual to list these attacks by the group who did them.
        So I had a look at France – where I see they don’t do that. And since the same time (2016), I see 27 attacks, 109 dead and all by Muslim terrorists. The latest on 17th March where a 75 year old man had his throat cut outside a Church. I don’t even recall seeing that reported on the BBC. I’m certain they did for the fact-checkers, but I bet it was only on the front page for a couple of hours.


        • StewGreen says:

          Montpelier guy survived
          Theatre director Alain Françon, 76, slashed in the throat outside church
          The French police have suspect in custody who has admitted the attack.
          He’s had a 10 year sentence for narcotics before
          Commenter calls him Algerian.


        • StewGreen says:

          Germany post 2016 body count ..21
          * They inflate the fig to 25 by including the perps if they kill themselves
          – 11* (inc perp and mother) The Hanau shootings occurred on 19 February 2020
          terrorist shooting spree by a far-right extremist targeting two shisha bars
          – 2 The Halle synagogue shooting 9 October 2019
          unsuccessfully trying to enter the synagogue in Halle during the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, the attacker Stephan Balliet killed a passer by & a guy in the kebab shop
          – 0 Sept 2019 A left-wing group has claimed responsibility for an arson attack on the Pankow court in Berlin
          – 1* – nutter set out to kill any black guy, injured one, boasted about it in a bar then killed himself
          – 1 July 2019 : assassination of CDU politician
          – 10* : 22 July 2016 Munich shooting

          It works the other way too
          Muslims are disproportionately likely to be attackers
          but they are also disproportionately likely to be victims : 18 out of the 32
          Maybe more if Islamist terrorists also killed Muslims.


  31. JohnC says:

    Manhunt after ‘execution’ shooting in Paris
    Another sterile BBC report made me look into it further;
    As expected, I discovered the victim was black and “very well-known notably for murder, drug trafficking and criminal association”.
    I give it 500:1 on that the attacker was black too. Hence the complete lack of detail. It will be under the carpet with all the others by tea time. Don’t want any distractions from the Floyd trial.

  34. AsISeeIt says:

    Judging by our national newspaper frontpages this morning, despite rumours to the contrary, the lads haven’t returned to the pubs and bars. But the ladettes certainly have…

    The freebie Metro pictures a pair of young ladies in their anoraks clutching a champaign bucket – the joke being that people have not exactly been allowed into pubs, they have rather been penned into some outdoor, often makeshift, drafty enclosure adjacent to the pub, as the British weather does just as one might imagine it would do: ‘Ice with that?‘ – quips the Metro.

    The Express exclaims: ‘Chilly first taste of freedom!‘ and their two young women have brought a dog along with them to the pub garden.

    The ‘i’ newspaper features: ‘Life after lockdown – for dogs‘ – presumably us blokes will come next down the pecking order?

    The Times stays sober in terms of drink, whilst going giddy over the shopping. Their frontpage woman posing with multiple shopping bags. Feminism is all very well, but there’s always a commercial aspect to women’s rights, right?

    The Times admits this great reopening has been a bit of a damp squib: ‘Cold comfort for shops as weather takes shine off reopening

    The ladettes in the Daily Mirror are similarly on the booze. Whilst the Metro pair are typically metropolitan: ‘Brrr-secco… [as they] …take a selfie with bubbly at the Fox on the Hill in Camberwell south London‘ – in contrast the Mirror’s lasses are having a: ‘Grand day out… after shopping in Leeds‘ – ee by gum.

    Primark carrier bags are stacked high on the pub table as: ‘Emma Bunten & Jessie Mitchell raise their glasses in a toast: Cheers! Here’s to lockdown lifting‘ – as if it had actually lifted.

    By the way, Emma Bunton with an ‘o’ happens to have been the name of a Spice Girl. You’ll remember the Spice Girls. That Girl Power media manufactured girl band of the Blairite 1990s. One day you’d never heard of them, the next everyone had a favourite.

    There are those, deeply mired in conspiracy theory, who insist that buried within the media manipulation there are often little clues implanted, as if to mock us.

    As the cultural feminisation proceeds apace with girls taking men’s place at the pub, so the boys must emote: ‘Brothers’ poignant tributes. We’ll miss you, Grandpa. Wills & Harry thank Prince Philip for his support, advice… and all the laughs‘ (Mirror)

    The Sun, relaying: ‘Their moving statements in full, pages 2,3,4 & 5‘ and, quoting Harry, amusingly refers to what Prince Philip’s likely response might have been: ‘Oh do get on with it!

    The Metro wants to contrast the two Princes’ eulogies: ‘Words apart. Princes give two very different and moving tributes…

    William: ‘A lifetime of service‘ Harry: ‘A legend of banter

    Now, now, Harry. Banter is banned remember, think what Meghan will say.

    Toynbee has also done a premature piece on the end of the Elizabethan period with the death of the DoE . Im not one for reading that however much cromwellian blood flows in me .

    9am R4 Jim Al-Khalili talks to a *nudge* scientist
    “Responses to Covid-19 show that nations can act rapidly and radically in response to immediate threats to health, even at huge cost.
    Can we do the same to tackle other threats to global health?”
    The blurb doesn’t mention global warming, but Jim is a fanatic.

    11am Justin Rowlatt show “fossil fuel society”
    Next episode “The Future : Solar and wind *could easily meet all of humanity’s energy needs*, but can we switch over before climate disaster strikes”
    ..that statement is a million miles from truth
    If it was easy it would have already been done
    right now they provide a tiny percentage of UK fuel.

    Fortunately for enemies of the BBC few who present the news have much ‘ gravity ‘ now – and although they all dream of being Kronkite they are a bunch of air heads. Before i hit the off button i notice how slowly they speak and the tone suggesting they are aiming at ‘english as second language’ guests in our poor country …

    Last day of the prosecution in the Floyd George trial. BBC and the rest of the media liked the eminent cardiologist who claimed that Floyd George’s heart stopped as a result of the police officer’s knee.
    He pointed out that the heart is an amazing organ that will not stop as a result of opiates, drugs, narrowing of the arteries or heart disease. It seems that the only way a heart can stop beating is when pressure is applied to the neck by a policeman’s knee.
    Great news. Today I have thrown away all medication, abandoned healthy exercise and diet and by keeping away from police officer’s knees I hope to survive another 200 years,

    World’s wealthiest ‘at heart of climate problem’

    I’ve been saying for the last year that as soon as the Covid hysteria dies down the climate will quickly replace it.

    This article is straight out of Extinction Rebellions politics of envy and targets the rich. They might as well headline this article ‘Only Socialism Can Save the Climate’.

    No matter what the emergency (BLM, covid, climate etc) it seems the answers presented by the BBC are always less freedoms and attack the rich (not themselves of course).

    An iPlayer video link. At the start she says people call her a ‘brat and idiot’. Well that is a bit harsh I thought and I watched the video right up to 1m12s when the brat and idiot was dancing with her feet on the train seat cushion.

    If train travellers stand on the chairs then I’m taking the plane for hygiene reasons alone.

      They’ve been calling the batsmen ‘batters’ for about three seasons on TMS.

      Another bastion of Britishness now terminally affected by ‘wokery’.

      The disease was caught quickly with a proliferation of effnik female commentators, who clearly can relate first hand to facing a Joffre Archer bouncer at almost 100 mph….

      It became terminal following the shelving of the only true living Yorkshire god, Sir Jeff of Boycott, who’s habit of calling a spade a shovel was deeply disturbing to the wokery in the upper echelons of the provisional BBC.

      Ps someone should inform the Beeb and ECB that no one cares about this 100 rubbish, despite their ongoing attempts to ram it down our throats.

    Times : The BBC has dropped an anti-meat message to children from its Blue Peter green badge initiative
    after it drew a furious response from farmers.

    The children’s programme offered the green badges, similar to the traditional blue ones, for youngsters who demonstrated they were “climate heroes” by making a pledge to “go meat-free”, switch off lights or stop using plastic bottles.


    • StewGreen says:

      Neil Shand, chief executive of the National Beef Association, said
      “Blue Peter’s attempts to influence the diet of young children away from these valuable food sources is a continuation of personal agendas by some journalists and programme makers,” he wrote. “It is incomprehensible that this type of programme should offer views which are at best unbalanced and at worst irresponsible.”

      A BBC spokeswoman said its website had been updated “to reflect that buying seasonal food or local grass-fed meat can also make a difference to climate change”.

      She said the “go meat-free” message had appeared on screen during a Blue Peter episode and at the same time a presenter had said “or choose a meat-free meal”.

      “We are not asking Blue Peter viewers to give up meat,” she added.

    Get your class, football team, after school club, Brownies, Cubs, Scout or Guide group to join in
    – you will get a Blue Peter Climate Heroes Certificate
    and everyone in your class or group will earn their Green Badge, that includes your teacher or group leader.
    Once you get your badge, your parent / guardian will need to apply for your Blue Peter Badge ID Card which will give you access to over 200 attractions”

    The page mixes up enviro and climate
    then says “Save water by turning off the taps when you brush your teeth”
    “Using less water gives plants and trees more to drink”
    I don’t think that is true

    Around here wasting water has little impact on plants

    What saddened me about the 110,000 complainers to the bBc re HRH………….was that as many as that actually still watched it?

    On a separate note , the verbal war from Sturgeon and Salmond over who can hate the English more will be an interesting challenge for bBC…..particularly the SNp/Sinn Fein/bBC Scotland …….

    Many with family ties to the South will be watching this closely……..the rabid core of scottish nationalism there for all to see.

    Stop discriminatory guidance for Black Hair salons

    139 have signed Rachel Clarke’s petition. Let’s get to 200!

    Sign now with a click

    New guidelines say all hairdressers must reduce the time customers spend in their chairs so any services offered should be “short and basic” treatments – but this will disadvantage Black customers.
    Many treatments and hairstyles Black customers receive take a few hours at a time. If the expectation is that customers can only receive their hair treatment if a short period of time is taken, then this doesn’t cater to the needs of those of African and Caribbean heritage. Given the negative implications and ramifications Covid -19 has had on the mental, financial and physical wellbeing of people, this new guidance appears to reinforce, rather than alleviate this. Whilst the reopening of salons is a positive step in the right direction, opposing aims may be achieved for those from Black minority backgrounds if this aspect isn’t reconsidered and changed.
    Everyone deserves the right to be able to safely access hairdressing services, not just those who are from European, or White Caucasian backgrounds.
    If those from Black minority backgrounds are prevented from using their salons, this will further compound the detrimental effects of Covid, for individuals as well as businesses.


    In other petitions, little people think safety restrictions on theme park rides are for pussies.

    And then… near family compo lawyers.
