        Every time the BBC show footballers prostrating themselves
        celebrating a black violent criminal they are joining the
        crowd who believe that black criminality should be
        legalised !!
        Like Candace Owens in my opinion Derek Chauvin was guilty
        of manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The way the
        media including the BBC are treating him as if he should be
        canonized ,is beyond comprehension.


        • theisland says:

          The bBC has 38 pages on George Floyd
          Perhaps we shall soon have a St George Floyd Day?

          In Parliament on 21 April 21st:
          Johnson: “Last night’s verdict in Minneapolis delivered justice for the family and friends of George Floyd, and I know that the thoughts of the whole House remain with them.”
          Starmer: “May I also join the Prime Minister in his comments about the verdict in the George Floyd case? There has been justice in that case.”
          Blackford chipped in with “the justice that we have now seen in the George Floyd case.”

          Never vote for these cowards again.

      She is a brave lady and has for the past few years been a voice of sanity in the USA. I hope she prospers and isn’t cancelled by the liberals but I think she will be able cope with attempts to do that. For several years she has been urging black people to wake up and realise that their best interests were served by a President Trump not the Democrats and DT got the largest % of the black vote by a republican candidate.
      Of course she will know that her success puts her in physical danger so she has courage too.


    • The General says:

      BBC don’t want to show black people like this excellent, intelligent,unbiased lady.

      Gives us faith and hope in humanity to hear such as her.

        Excellent video. Should be played in every classroom !

        If a white person had dared to say any of this, they would have been lynched by the baying mob outside the studio, and castigated by every talking head black and white that the news channels could get hold of. I’m surprised Fox News haven’t snapped her up. Has Andrew Neil seen this I wonder ???

        I’d love to see a debate between her and that muppet June Sarpong ! I know who my money would be on 🙂

    Huge excitement in the Guardian. Greta, Roger and George vindicated. And it’s all our fault!
    Apparently so many millions of tons of ice has melted from the Arctic the whole axis of the Earth has altered, proving that our meddling with vital ecosystems is responsible for untold damage. So XR are right and we should give up, now, accept our fate and allow our oil, plastic, batteries, red meat and central heating to crumble away to dust.

    Except that it wasn’t untold, was it? My Chambers Encyclopedia from the 1950s confirmed that earth’s axis of rotation was due to change around 2010-20 in an entirely predictable geophysical event. It has a proper name – which eludes me, though having a label rather proves its existence, but I’m sure greater minds will fill in the spaces. The axial change results in the northern Arctic regions being closer to the sun while the Antarctic moves further away. Hence, loss of northern ice cap and a marked increase in the southern ice cap.
    Nothing to do with man-made climate change, everything to do with a regular, recorded and scientifically proven event which has resulted in ice ages and warm periods over millennia.

    The Guardian will prefer Greta’s version.


    • Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

      I’ve lifted this from Wiki, under “Axial Precession”:

      “… …

      The Earth is not a perfect sphere but an oblate spheroid, with an equatorial diameter about 43 kilometers larger than its polar diameter. Because of the Earth’s axial tilt, during most of the year the half of this bulge that is closest to the Sun is off-center, either to the north or to the south, and the far half is off-center on the opposite side. The gravitational pull on the closer half is stronger, since gravity decreases with the square of distance, so this creates a small torque on the Earth as the Sun pulls harder on one side of the Earth than the other. The axis of this torque is roughly perpendicular to the axis of the Earth’s rotation so the axis of rotation precesses. If the Earth were a perfect sphere, there would be no precession.

      … …”

      I recall a science teacher (ex-Navy) at school, who told us that back in the 1950s, the pole star Polaris really was at absolute north. If precession (due to axial wobbling) occurs at roughly 1 degree every 72 years, then now you would expect Polaris to be about 1 degree away from true north, which it is.


      • Beltane says:

        Thanks for the science Mustapha – ‘Precession’ I knew the right word was out there somewhere!
        But better than simple facts gained from Wiki, doesn’t this prove so embarrassingly well how the ‘Climate Change’ lobby works? For the brainwashed masses, the world tilting off its axis with frightful tsunamis of ice water rushing to engulf the Bahamas and polar bears swept to destruction on the African coast, nothing could suit their frenzied little minds better.
        Don’t let on about the real science, just show the figures to suit the narrative, Greta takes another step towards sainthood and we embrace massive tax increases with wild enthusiasm.


        • Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

          Actually, that half-remembered stuff from my school days turns out to be only partly correct.

          Further reading confirmed that Polaris is about 1 degree away from true North; yet it is NOT moving away from true North but towards it! The two will align very closely shortly after the year 2100 (80 years from now, so consonant with precession at the rate of 1 degree in ~ 72 years).

          I can’t work out what that teacher meant by his reference to the 1950s. It can’t have been the ever-shifting magnetic North, which at the time was south of 75 degrees (at present > 85) – nowhere near the ideal 90 degrees north!


    • G says:


      ‘Damn those astronomical events getting in the way of a good public con again!’


      • Seppers says:

        I am no fan of the guardian or BBC, but I think the CC issue is separate from them.
        There are a lot of scientists around the world who agree that man made changes are the best theory we have.


        • Beltane says:

          There is an even greater number of highly – and authentically – qualified scientists Seppers, whose research is ignored and whose opinions are never requested.
          Most ‘climate science’ is the product of the unqualified in search of fame and a ‘name’ – Harrabin is a classic example – but they do have the major benefit of big bucks behind them and the creation of media phenomena like Greta to help their highly questionable aims.


          • Seppers says:

            Well, Beltene, I hope you’re right. It would be better if it wasn’t us doing the damage. For now I’m going with then man-made warming idea, but my mind is open for sure.


    • The General says:

      Sorry the above stories do not fit the narrative.

      Move along please nothing to see here !!!!!!!

      ( BBC and Guardian must be aware of these FACTS omission and failure to report is as bad
      as downright lying )


    • Richard Pinder says:

      Obliquity of the ecliptic is the term used by astronomers for the inclination of Earth’s equator with respect to the ecliptic, or of Earth’s rotation axis to a perpendicular to the ecliptic. It is about 23.4 degrees and is currently decreasing at 0.013 degrees per hundred years because of planetary perturbations. I think the change is a deceleration of the decreasing of the obliquity of the ecliptic towards 22.5 degrees which will be met in about 10,000 years time.

      You can even work out the scientific fraud used for the scare because even on Wikipedia it says that until 1983 the obliquity for any date was calculated from the work of Newcomb. But from 1984 the calculations have been more high precision calculations made by JPL.

      Since 1899, the Earth’s axis of spin has shifted about 34 feet. But it seems that Newcomb predicted it would shift by 23 feet. So would a retrospective computer run by JPL show 34 feet?

      It cannot be Polar ice because changes in the Polar Ice Sheets since 1899 are insignificant compared to that of an Ice Age. I am sure the masses involved would be less than the global daily changes in the Ocean tides.

    If only we hadn’t poached half thier doctors and nurses in the name of diversity, and bought up the vaccines they make, to give to non vulnerable people here


    • Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

      The biased BBC will probably try to blame Mr Modi for this.

  5. JohnC says:

    Just held my nose and browsed the BBC site to keep an eye on the enemy of the country.
    First, big headline I saw:
    Dominic Cummings launches attack on Boris Johnson’s integrity
    OMG, what explosive revelations will I find inside ?.
    Boris once had a ‘possibly illegal plan’ when redecorating. That’s it.
    Describes as ‘an explosive intervention’ by the BBC political correspondant.
    There may be more on Dominics blog, but if there were anything more serious, it would be in the headline, and I can’t be bothered to go chasing the truth yet again. Of course they don’t give us a link to his blog – unlike ‘straight-to-twitter’ for their woke agenda. I presume it’s because they don’t want to give oxygen to everything else he said.
    When challenged about the text leaks the BBC have tried to blow out of all proportion: ‘Mr Johnson said: “I don’t think people give a monkey’s, to be frank”‘
    Honestly, it’s so pathetic I don’t have the words. The BBC (and the Left in general) have morphed into spiteful children ever since the referendum and Trump.


    • africamike says:

      @JohnC – Indeed this is a curious one. Why would Mr Cummings attack Boris, even if it is a relatively trifling affair? My theory is that our Dom doesn’t like Boris cozying up to Greta, John Kerry, Biden, et al on this climate fraud (because he’s smart enough to know where it leads). I think Dom warned him off and Boris wouldn’t listen, so he’s going to get taken down. Dom is a handy support when your objectives align. But not if they don’t it seems.


      • JohnC says:

        Agreed : Dom is clearly a very clever man who you really don’t want as an enemy. A good attack-dog. A bit like Gove – though I think Dom has much more integrity.
        All the BBC care about though is damaging both of them as much as possible. They don’t care what it is about.


        • Guest Who says:

          Lie with dogs… get fleas.

          • Beltane says:

            This all revolves around the war between Dominic and the PM’s squeeze Princess Nut-Nut, whose eco politics, anti sympathies and green influence will eventually cost him dear.
            I can only assume the pug-faced Carrie is particularly noisy in bed, thus enhancing the buffoon’s overt masculinity, yet however encouraging this may seem to his ego, she will bring him down – and he will deserve it for allowing himself to be so manipulated by a woman with so many very dubious friends.


        • Banania says:

          “Dom has much more integrity…” (than Gove).
          Could praise be fainter than that?


      • Banania says:

        Well, I were Cummings, I should be feeling aggrieved and possibly vengeful, after the way I had been treated.

    French police station stabbing: Terror inquiry into Rambouillet knife attack
    Not just a stabbing BBC, she was murdered. And don’t forget, this is someone up-close sticking a knife into someones neck. They can see their face while they do it and the blood will be spurting everywhere. You need real hate to do that. A fact they go nowhere near.
    I saw this as a small subarticle on the ‘World’ page and it’s 3 hours old which means it was put up at about bedtime. As I’m in Thailand, I’ll keep a check and let’s see if it disappears altogether before everyone starts waking up just like the one I saw during my time in exile (ie the forum was down).

    This is so typical of what the BBC churns out these days.
    George Floyd: Black Lives Matter protesters react to Chauvin conviction
    The whole thing is at the intellectual level of a child. Complete with the usual melancholic piano background music. It adds absolutely nothing to anything : it’s pure agenda. Two clueless young black women telling us how racist white people are.
    It’s about time someone made them look in a mirror and asked them about the extraordinary level of crime and violence by black people which make the police shoot first and ask questions later.


    • G says:

      ‘Self-control’ –
      “Self-control—or the ability to manage one’s impulses, emotions, and behaviors to achieve long-term goals—is what separates humans from the rest of the animal kingdom. Self-control is primarily rooted in the prefrontal cortex—the planning, problem-solving, and decision making center of the brain—which is significantly larger in humans than in other mammals.”


      Psychology students looking for a subject for their thesis: Anybody done any tests in the existence and perhaps development in prefrontal cortex’ in “other mammals”?


      • Disgruntled of Enfield says:

        Lots in chimps in zoo like conditions, frontal lobes start cutting in 3-4y old in humans. there is a famous experiment with sweets
        You get 2 children and 2 piles of sweets 1 pile has 2 sweets the other 4.You ask the child to point to which pile of sweets they want. They point at 4. You then change the rules so to get the larger amount of sweets, they have to point at the smaller pile. Some children find this hard, low frontal lobe function until later in life. Famous expt also been done with chimps, look up Phineas Gage. There are things I could say but not online You should have a look at the literature especially in people inclined to criminality

      Guest, ‘sh!t’ in the US especially as well as in some European countries can be a euphemism for a certain tobacco substitute. Guess that’s why you refer to ‘gardening’ in your final sentence.

      Do I get reward points for deciphering it that way?


  15. AsISeeIt says:

    On a morning when the BBC is breathlessly eager to demonstrate, see we told you so: ‘India’s healthcare system is buckling as a record surge in Covid-19 cases

    One notes the common sense comment already posted hereabouts that had a few of their doctors and nurses stayed at home instead of being poached by our sainted NHS, the Indians would have more healthworkers on hand.

    This seems a bit anecdotal to me: ‘Analysis by Soutik Biswas BBC India online correspondent: Every morning, for the past few days, I have been waking up to my phone buzzing with desperate messages for help. People are seeking hospital beds‘ – calling you, mate? They should phone 999. Do they think you can do them a favour of some sort?

    BBC: ‘India’s deadly second wave is continuing to set world records for its daily total of coronavirus cases.’ – here we go with the world records… that’s because a lot of people live there. And because the Chinese are a little, shall we say, reticent with their figures? Whereas India will have no shame in putting out the international begging bowl.

    They do say Dominic Cummings is a bright bloke. This morning he’s telling us what we all knew, or might have guessed: ‘Boris Johnson tried to cancel leak inquiry to avoid upsetting his partner, Carrie Symonds‘ (‘i’) – Yes, the hen-pecked would-be Churchillian is afraid of Her Indoors.

    Ex-advisor denies leaks and accuses Johnson of “possibly illegal” acts‘ (Guardian) – naughty, naughty. I’m frankly surprised the anything goes Graun has gone all puritanical on us but no wonder the Honorable Member is so attached to his Princess Nut Nut… Bojo by name, bojo by nature…? Oh, have I grabbed the wrong end of the stick…? ‘He warned him decor payments for No10 could be illegal‘ (Daily Mail)

    That’s me with the dirty mind. You can’t blame me: ‘It’s a hidden pandemic that kills millions each year. But dirty air is a problem we can solve‘ (Apple i-phone news pop up linking to some report steeped in climate change rigmarole)

    Dirty Air – it’s all around us, apparently. If only there was some simply self-protection device one could strap onto one’s face to filter out the dirtiness in the outdoor atmosphere: ‘Smile! No masks by the summer‘ (Daily Express) – don’t you bet on it.

    Justice: Years of hell end for victims of Post Office scandal’ (Express) – we all know how that can be. Yesterday my old dad finally received a birthday card postmarked 21st March.

    Time to clear the air of filth – momentarily – and cue up a female celeb hypochondriacal angst feature: ‘Marianne Faithfull “Long covid means I may never sing again“‘ (Telegraph) – and as we count our blessings the Telegraph’s Stacey Durguid [is that name an anagram?] of their Dating Diary feature is boasting: ‘Within an hour of joining Hinge I had an inbox full of men, many of them topless’ – but were they hopeless?

    Our Stacey, we assume, is a good girl. She would never prostitute herself for filthy lucre, would she? ‘Stacey wears Green dress from clairemische vani.com; shoes are Jimmy Choo

    In case you missed last week’s introductory column, allow me to provide some context: after a long marriage, I am newly single and trying to get my head around dating. Given I’m about to turn 47, it’s highly unlikely you’ll find me rolling around Soho finding “boys” in bars‘ – you might be wasting your time there, luv.

    There’s definitely something in the air, and I’m not sure if it’s dirty: ‘Dating how much should you pay for love?‘ – this in the Guardian Money section. Well, they don’t do proper economics, perish the thought.

    Klopp warning Beware fans’ backlash‘ (Telegraph) – ah, the lovable German, always makes us smile when we think of Allo Allo and that amusing Heil Hitler, Klopp! from the old comedy trooper Sam Kelly.

  17. The WestWyvern says:

    I wonder why Cummings nicknamed the outgoing PMs girlfriend ‘nut nuts’ I thought perhaps because of her whacky lefty views on the environment etc etc…

    Perhaps tho’ it’s because she has some parts of Boris genitalia gripped very very tightly.

    Perhaps Nut Nuts has been taking lessons from Meghan, Princess Woke of Hollywood.

    In other news, has the provisional BBC started the same levels of propaganda over the stabbing to death of a white police woman in Paris, by a Tunisian immigrant?

    I’d offer they could perhaps run a similar campaign as they did over the case of some low life called floyd, a death that also took place overseas and involved a police officer?


    • JohnC says:

      Nop: it’s currently residing as a single line ‘French terror probe into deadly attack on police’ at the very bottom of the BBC ‘Home’ page and I’m expecting it to disappear completely when the staff get in and update it.
      The hypocrisy and double-standards are off the scale.

  19. Thoughtful says:

    There is a by election currently underway in Hartlepool not that you’d know about it, being so far away from London.
    Nor perhaps because the Tories rather unbelievably are 7 points ahead of Labour in the town.

    Why is this so important? Because Hartlepool has never returned a Tory MP in over a century, it’s a Labour stronghold, and always has been.

    My own opinion has been the effect of the George Floyd death, and trial and the reaction of Labours own membership to it, plus the rejection of the Woke left in the party.

    If you look across the pond to America, see the burning cities, the mob rule, the leftist politicos encouraging rioting and anarchy, would you want that here on your doorstep?
    That’s the promise of Labour. To celebrate Black crime, demonise the Police and to make the White majority into second class citizens. At last people are begining to wake up and realise the Left are so toxic they can’t even manage to persuade traditional heartland voters their cause is right.

    It’s a shame that the Tories are in reality just as bad as the Tories in this regard.


  20. Fedup2 says:

    Thoughtful – there was very fair piece on it during the week by Gary gibbons on C4. I was amazed that he showed a lot of bits with Labour voters openly saying they are going to vote Tory for a first time .
    I was waiting for Mandelson to get a mention but it never came .

    TOADY Watch #1 – ooops! Have the BBC dropped Carrie Symonds in the mire?

    It seemed that way listening to TOADY this morning. In the prime slot interview the BBC ‘obsession du jour’ was the supposed row between Dominic Cummings and the Prime Minister. I think the BBC have realised that the PM has backed the BBC into a corner over Covid, Brexit and other matters and the BBC are lashing out as terrified and cornered beasts that they are.

    It’s laughable that the BBC accuse the PM and the Cabinet and Conservative Party over a lack of integrity.

    What do we, the public know, in all of this? We know the BBC obtained ‘leaked’ material. They would claim they are – as a journalistic organisation (pause to let laughter die down) – entitled to protect their source.

    This leaked material could only come from three sources: the PM & Carrie, SPADS or Civil Serpents.


  25. G.W.F. says:

    In August 2016 Tony Timpa, phoned the Dallas police indicating he had problems with drugs he had been taking. The cops arrived and put him in a restraining position and he expressed a fear that they might kill him. The cops knelt on him for over 13 minutes until he finally stopped breathing and was pronounced dead in the ambulance. It took his family three years to obtain the video recoding of his death.
    It is a long video but if anyone is bored they can move forward about six minutes to hear Tony scream and see the knees driven between his shoulder blades.
    This is harrowing stuff, and the man dies.
    No one, no one, left or right, wants to discuss Tony Timpa’s dreadful death or comment on how the poor man screamed in terror and pain.
    Please watch his mother’s reaction to his death towards the end, around 1.10.

    Pardon me because I am going to shout.
    I believe two of the cops were of colour.

    Yesterday I posted about a recent surge in race hate (re-posted below) and wondered if it might not be an unintended consequence of the media obsession with – and saturation coverage of – racial issues.

    But is it really so ‘unintentional’?

    It should be remembered that many of the movements behind the continuous race-baiting are Marxist, neo-Marxist, or Marxist-influenced, whose agenda was never to heal the divisions in our societies, but, on the contrary, to exacerbate such divisions with the ultimate aim of bringing down free market, Judeo-Christian, Western society.

    Revolution by other means, to misquote Clausewitz.

    A few names at random: BLM, Antifa, the Frankfurt School, Black Power, Gramsci, Critical Race Theory, Intersectionality, and the whole fetid swamp of Marxist-dominated sociology.

    Fedup makes the point that ‘Dividing the country by continuous race this and race that it the method the Marxist BBC is using to destroy Blighty’.

    I suspect a few at the BBC fit that category, who are unreconstructed Marxists from last century who know exactly what they’re doing. But I suspect many more are just fellow travellers and useful idiots, happy to jump on the latest woke bandwagon, and terrified of being denounced as racists. Marxists have always punched above their weight, wielding disproportionate power and influence in areas such as the Labour party, the Unions, Education, the media, and, of course, our very own Beeb.

    The charity Victim Support reports a surge in race hate, according to The Sun.

    Could it be that all the militant race-baiting in the US and UK is fuelling that surge, by the law of unintended consequences?

    That the average, decent, non-racist Brit is sick to death of being relentlessly accused of racism by the likes of the Far-Liberal BBC?

    That all the kneeling, riots, clenched fists, public show-trials, destruction of statues, renaming of streets, denigration of our history, attacks on buildings and institutions, vilification of our heroes, guilt-shaming of the public; the endless mea-culpas, sackings, cancellings and deplatformings are pushing ordinary people to say: ENOUGH, and producing a racist backlash?

    Just when you thought you’d heard it all, here comes a new one…



    BBC: The Australian pop star [Sia] has previously apologised for casting a neurotypical actor as a nonverbal autistic girl, and for scenes depicting the use of restraints on autistic people.

    not displaying or characterized by autistic or other neurologically atypical patterns of thought or behaviour.

    And how about this fabulous example of usage, as supplied by google dictionary via Oxford Dictionaries:

    “neurotypical individuals often assume that their experience of the world is either the only one or the only correct one”

    As a cis-gendered, white (I’ve discovered caucasian is now ruled out as a pseudoscientific term used to create distance – I’m sure something else will be along soon) https://www.workforce.com/uk/news/6-reasons-not-say-caucasian neurotypical, senior (?) I can’t help but notice the words to descibe me are getting weirder and more offensive-sounding by the day.

    Oh, and there’s been another murder in Khan’s London

    A 14-year-old boy has been stabbed to death in east London.


    Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said he was “deeply saddened” by the killing… He urged witnesses to come forward, saying: “This appalling incident happened on a busy street in broad daylight, so if you saw or know anything then please don’t stay silent.”

    Descriptions? You’ve got to be kidding.


    • Will Jones says:

      AsISeeit. Thank you so much for that neurotypical. I have younger relatives who get very agitated if I don’t keep up with the right-on jargon.

      You are correct that caucasian is out and white is not going down well with the youngsters. They tell me the correct word for us formerly cis gendered white men is racist.

      Tupac Shakir.. Seems like a decent chap.

      (A bit of cut and paste)
      In August 1992, Tupac was attacked by jealous youths in Marin City. He drew his pistol but dropped it in the melee. Someone picked it up, the gun fired, and a 6-year-old bystander, Qa’id Walker-Teal, fell down dead.

      In October 1993, Tupac shot and wounded two white off-duty cops in Atlanta — one in the abdomen and one in the buttocks — after an altercation. However, the charges were dropped after it emerged in court that the policemen had been drinking, had initiated the incident and that one of the officers had threatened Tupac with a stolen gun.

      Tupac did go to jail for 15 days in 1994 for assaulting the director Allen Hughes, who had fired him from the set of the movie Menace II Society for being disruptive.

      Before Tupac released his third album, there was more trouble. In November 1994, he was shot multiple times in the lobby of a Manhattan recording studio, Quad, by two young Black men.

      In February 1995, Tupac was sentenced to between one and a half and four and a half years of jail time for sexually abusing a female fan. The case related to an incident that had taken place in Tupac’s suite in the New York Parker Meridien hotel in November 1993..

      Tupac died in Las Vegas on September 13, 1996, of gunshot wounds inflicted six days prior. His murder remains unsolved

      Do we really want this glorified…

    TOADY Watch #2 – “crony capitalism” cries remain cry-baby Grieve

    There were some laughs on the TOADY Programme again this morning. Dominic Grieve was the interviewee for Nick on the BBC’s current favourite TV and Radio show ‘ Dic’s & Dom’s Textual Spat ‘.

    Dominic Grieve is not the Dom in ‘ Dic’s & Dom’s ‘ and he was at pains to explain how Conservative he was and how Tory he was and how bad they, Dics and Doms, were. Which was hilarious because he pointed the finger at Boris Johnson and said “Corrupt” and “Crony Capitalist” yet was happy to remain as a Remainer in the same Political Party as lead by an arch Brexiteer and do his utmost to overturn a democratic decision of the people of the UK.

    And Grieve was doing this all on the BBC, who of the five terrestrial TV broadcasters is probably the most corrupt of the lot. Laughs aplenty.


    • StewGreen says:

      Yes BBC Radio Lincolnshire news this morning

        Wasn’t he effectively sacked out of the Conservative Party ?
        By Boris Johnson?
        Conflict of interest not mentioned – in this case ?


        • Up2snuff says:

          Conservative Party Whip withdrawn, slightly different to ‘being sacked’.

          I thought it hilarious that Grieve trumpeted his Conservative credentials before accusing his Party and its leader of crony capitalism. Nick Robinson asked him “Oh, listeners will say ‘This is because you are Remainer and this is all about Brexit’ ” I got another laugh as Grieve quickly swept that under the carpet: “Brexit is over. That’s all been done.”

          BBC bosses will not be happy to hear Grieve say that!

          Grievance culture – there couldn’t be elections coming up, could there?


        • StewGreen says:

          @Nibor funny they made out Grieve is a Tory
          em.. he stood against the Conservative candidate in Beaconsfield in 2019 and that the Lib Dems stood aside to help him !

    BBC tells DJ’s to stop playing 70’s ‘rock music’!
    Apparently, in the quest to attract the ‘Holy Grail’ of younger listeners — women in their mid-30s to mid-40s — the bosses at BBC Radio 2 have been quietly asking their DJs to scale back on playing songs from the 1960s and 1970s in favour of music from the 1980s onwards.

    A new radio station called BOOM has since launched for the post war baby boomers. The BBC are happy to rid middle England of the 60’s and 1970’s and play hip hop rap music from now on.

    I listened to it (BOOM RADIO) this morning. Its like Radio 1 used to be, when DJ;s had talent and could play what they want. Now they (BBC DJ’s get TOLD what to play from an ‘approved list’ and as BBC radio ratings are plummeting, some presenters – if not pushed out are leaving (retiring from the BBC).


    All in all, its not a bad start. Quite a few famous names (not just ex BBC) all lined up, working from their garden sheds – at home! (not that you can tell the difference) but its an improvement over the BBC radio studios, which I never listen too any more (for anything). So competition to the dreary and politically correct Agenda driven BBC is welcome..

    You can find it here and on your ALEXA speaker.


    • Rich says:


      I find Absolute Radio suits me musically, even though I can’t stand Oasis. Decently eclectic and refreshingly not geared towards mobo, pretty “white male” in most of the stuff that I’ve heard over the last few months I’ve been listening.

      A couple of the female DJs are a bit “Smashy and Nicey” but the music is varied, from the 60s on, hardly ever any rap or grime or “urban”, and they have a “No Repeat Guarantee” during the day where they don’t play the same song twice.

      All commercial stations have their faults but the playing of the same song two or three times in the space of a few hours really pisses me off, as do self-amusing middle-aged DJs pretending to like and be excited by the warbled angst of the latest bland American poppet or by yet another of the seemingly endless stream of generically misogynistic and untalented pseudo-gangstas.
      I turned away from my local stations because of this. Well, this and the awful grammar and stupidity of the presenters and newsreaders. No general or national knowledge, done instead of did, wumman instead of woman, any place-name outside greater Belfast butchered.

      I’m from NI but I have to admit that a few of our local accents are sore on the ears, made even more so when the speaker sounds as thick as mince.

    Bidens going Green! About that Green deal this week….

    ‘‘The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all… Do you guys think of it as a climate thing? Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.’ So said Saikat Chakrabarti, former chief of staff for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and generally acknowledged author of the Green New Deal.

    Sometimes it is wise to find out what ideas’ originators actually think. That is true for documents that have lit up our lives, such as the US Constitution, as well as for those that have darkened them, such as Mein Kampf.

    This is true as well for the nascent Green New Deal, which President Joe Biden has essentially adopted as his own. Even if Congress fails to pass it entirely, Biden will seek to impose many of its goals through administrative diktats on gas-powered cars, land use, airplanes, any form of fossil fuel and nuclear power. Green New Dealers will also extend the welfare state, including to those who choose not to work.

    As Chakrabarti indicated, the Green New Deal is not another environmental ameliorative, but something far more fundamentally transformative. The Biden administration’s embrace of it is somewhat surprising given that the likely economic fallout of this plan – particularly for the working class – made both Biden and House speaker Nancy Pelosi distance themselves from it during the fall campaign. But now the Green New Deal has resurfaced, having made the metamorphosis from a leftist fantasy into a serious political initiative.
    Environmental puritanism and its consequences

    The deep-seated sense of pending apocalypse that grips Western elites is driving the shift to draconian and radical policies. Some politicians, like Oregon’s Earl Blumenauer, have called on Biden to declare ‘a climate emergency’, which would essentially give the White House a blank cheque and unlimited power to impose its vision.

    So for the BBC, Biden is the new Tony Bliar and he can do no wrong. Socialism has worked around the world right?
    Its a perfect system of equality and poverty that lack any morals and perpetuated by crackpot dictators, that the BBC can find no fault. They are as one. Of one mind. Their moment to save the planet from democracy and rid all conservatives – forever! The purpose of their lives, in a nutshell – misery.

    Read on and despair. Climate emergency my ***.
