Midweek Thread 28th April 2021

We are witnessing the BBC conducting an election campaign on behalf of the Labour Party. Some might say that such activity subverts the democratic process . But as we have seen in a recent election elsewhere – the BBC isn’t too worried about fairness – yet alone impartiality . Surely there is a score to be settled with the Far Left anti British Biased BBC …

    An useful link to all you serious Al Beeb de-funders…………….
    “Why we’re here:
    This blog is to highlight the unjust persecution of legitimate non-TV users at the hands of TV Licensing. These people do not require a licence and are entitled to live without the unnecessary stress and inconvenience caused by TV Licensing’s correspondence and employees.”



    • Fedup2 says:

      A very useful read thank you – the comment section includes a discussion about whether having a dog is better than having a television – very profound .


      • taffman says:

        No need to thank me . We should all thank you for your time, work and effort for this site.

      Catchup links to latest posts on the previous thread
      page 3 started 2pm Tuesday

      One issue that came up was the apparently photoshopped photo on the ITV Lorraine show
      You know what ..that actually comes back to THE BBC

      Lorraine was interviewing Mike Gunton exec producer of the new Attenborough doco exclusive to Apple+ TV
      The screenshot Lorraine used to build the narrative “Indian air clear after Covid Lockdown”, was taken from two frames in the Attenborough Trailer
      Apple didn’t actually make the film, the BBC did.
      “The Year Earth Changed” is produced by BBC Studios Natural History Unit,
      directed by Tom Beard, and executive produced by Mike Gunton and Alice Keens-Soper.”

    Sir James Dyson exclusive: BBC twisted the truth over my links to the Tories

    Writing for the Telegraph, inventor says it is untrue that he was a major donor and that he tried to ‘extract favours from Boris Johnson’


    It is a paywall but I might have to buy it tomorrow. It seems that the BBC might have dug itself into a bit of a pit here


    • Guest Who says:

      So… the Baseless Bicker Club feels selective allegation is still how to build trust in its output?


    • Doublethinker says:

      If Dyson sues the BBC and wins it would , paradoxically, be highly beneficial to the cause of free speech. He has deep pockets , the BBC has billions of ordinary folks money. It would further undermine whatever credibility the foul corporation has left if they were forced to pay a hefty sum in damages.


      • Scroblene says:

        The trouble is, Double, if/when they lose, we’ll not hear about it from them, or it’ll be hidden in some dross of their ‘local’ news sections online, so they can claim they told everybody.

        I hear and read so many more articles and discussions about the BBC not being trusted any more. They squeal at ‘fat cats’ while extorting a week’s pension from oldies like me, then point their stubby little fingers at people like Mr Dyson, who actually went out and did something with his own money, rather than squat in a plush office in W1A, wasting every tax they can grab with the very same fat fingers.

        I hope they really get stuffed, and a collective cheer will go up from most people in Great Britain, who consider them a useless bunch of leftie spouters supplying a very, very poor ‘service’ to the taxpayer.

    We need not be concerned about what Al Beeb tells us but what Al Beeb does not tell us .


    • smoogie7 says:

      Well there is a lot of Labour councillors who are suspended or under investigation. This seems to be the case across the country so it is more than just ‘local news’ but according to the BBC it is not news at all.

      Quite clearly they are working to help Labour out as part of the long game to try and get us back into the EU


    • Peter Grimes says:

      “ We need not be concerned about what Al Beeb tells us but what Al Beeb does not tell us .”

      As we know, this is how they do it, take a few facts and extrapolate without looking into the detail…extract from the Torygraph.

      “When the BBC contacted us, we answered all of Laura Kuenssberg’s many questions. She did not ask if I am a Conservative donor. In her broadcast, however, the BBC claimed I was a prominent Conservative supporter – this she later admitted was based on a charitable donation shown on the Electoral Commission register of £11,450, made by The James Dyson Foundation to the Wiltshire Engineering Festival. A staggering claim. She and the BBC made this grotesque mischaracterisation to justify their “sleaze” story which would otherwise simply not have stood up.

      The festival, run in 2016 and 2017, was attended by thousands of local school pupils to encourage young people into engineering. For the record, the total donations I have made to political causes in my entire life amount to £800. Laura Kuenssberg also argued that I had spoken at the Conservative Party Conference in 2009 to further justify her story. But I have spoken at the Labour Party conference as well, in 1998, and on both occasions the topic was engineering.“

    “Anger as ex-generals warn of ‘deadly civil war’ in France”
    “The French government has condemned an open letter signed by active soldiers that said the country was heading for “civil war” due to religious extremism.”
    What religion and what extremism ?

      Some 20 years ago, on LGF, when France was going down the multiculti Islam route, I pointed out that it would be France that will lead the fight back.

      It will needs be a fight with no quarters given. The Islamic side firmly believes that Europe was gifted to them by allah.


  5. vlad says:

    The BBC are pleased to announce:

    “Bafta TV Awards: Diversity’s BGT routine up for must-see moment award”

    The BBC lists 6 nominations. (Guess which is listed first?)

    Personally I can’t wait to see their exciting routine, especially the bit where career criminal Floyd and his gang physically assault a pregnant woman and point a gun at her, with children present, while robbing her home. (Oh, and she was white hispanic, so does that make it a racist hate crime?)

    Other highlights might include ‘must-see’ choreographed re-enactments of his numerous other crimes, or his final fatal drugs overdose.

    Wholesome fun for all the family.



  6. vlad says:

    And talking of Floyd, I think he gets a bad rap by the racist media, so here’s an alternative take on him, to redress the balance.



    • Guest Who says:

      The higher profile icons used by all sides often seem prone to flaw.

    Belfield news
    #1 Monday was supposed to be the day Notts Police delivered their guaranteed charging decision on him
    .. they of course haven’t said anything yet

    #2 He tweeted that he’s Suspended from @YouTube “violation of medical-misinformation”
    All he did was quote Chris Whitty DIRECTLY.
    Remember what saved him from police last time
    was his ability to broadcast live the police smashing his door in

    He arrogantly bragged before
    ‘Yeh YouTube won’t touch me cos I’m too important to them and have a good relationship’
    people had warned him he needed a backup channel.
    His Facebook is still up


    • StewGreen says:

      Actually The channel is still working
      maybe he means YouTube has banned him from uploading for a week
      Last upload was 5 hour ago


      • vlad says:

        I’ve always thought it was just a matter of time till YouTube and other social media came after Belfield and started de-platforming him. He is definitely not too important – barely registers on their radar. And lefties will continually report him for this or that infringement of their guidelines, or hate crime or whatever.


      • StewGreen says:

        That upload was about the award to BGT for the BLM dance.
        Looks like he can still edit titles, but not upload new vids
        unless an appeal works
        Cos he’s retitled the video


  9. StewGreen says:

    New Belfield video calling out James Whale
    for immediately cutting of a guy when he said he films illegals arriving at Dover
    Whale called him a “Conspiracy theorist” and cut him off.

    ..Em when a conspiracy is evidenced ..it’s different
    They have proven MSM omits reporting on Dover.

    Belfield waffles so here’s a direct link to meaty part

    I see today the BBC have another headline ‘Labour accuses Boris Johnson of lying over flat renovation costs’.
    If it were Trump, it would be:
    ‘Without providing any evidence, Labour accuses Boris Johnson of lying over flat renovation costs’.
    They just make me sick now. I’ve given up with any benefit of the doubt for the BBC. They are nothing but low-life activists.
    If it were something important, I might appreciate why our National news provider might make this top headline news. But even if it was from a donor, the only issue is the declaration. The donation is allowed.
    At worst it’s Boris being a naughty boy at the command of Nut Nuts (who he should have dumped after the sofa incident). The Left would be crying for impeachment if they could do the same here.

    Newham fatal stabbing: Victim’s brother was also killed
    How strange that this story – a young black boy murdered in our own country is not even on the BBC front page even though the story is only 7 hours old. And of course the ethnicity of any of them is not mentioned. I’ve only ever seen that recently when the victim is black and the killer is white.
    And the list of names of the 12 victims so far makes very interesting reading. Not an English one among them.
    Yet yesterday, police in another country making a joke while arresting someone with dementia made the headline spot.
    They are nothing but low-life, ethically-barren far-Left activists now. And they are getting worse as their confidence about getting away with it grows thanks to places like twitter.
    They have to be stopped. They are a cancer in society.


    • StewGreen says:

      quote : “Junior Jah’s death in Newham takes the number of teenagers to die from knife attacks in London this year to 12.

      His brother Ahmed Deen-Jah, 21, was killed in 2017 when buying a soft drink one afternoon in Custom House.

      The Local Democracy Reporting Service logged 26 teen murders in 2019 – a figure that may be surpassed this year.

      Last year’s much lower total of 14 has been attributed to the effect of Covid lockdown restrictions dampening street violence.”

          Uroosa Arshid, 27, from Aspley, Nottingham, said: “A lot of people do still stereotype firefighters, so when they see people like me they are very shocked and confused.”
          They are shocked and confused love because Muslims rarely play any active part in serving or protecting society as a whole.
          They tend to form their own little Muslim states and anyone not in it is a worthless infidel.

    Dyson says the BBC sucks

    Non-managerial language

    What should we tell her indoors?

    And time to get the Barnet cut

    The Labour-supporting Daily Mirror decorates its frontpage, drawing our attention to the PM’s: ‘cash for curtains‘ ulterior designs, insisting: ‘Johnson mired in scandal‘ – shouldn’t that be draped in scandal?

    So can Boris wallpaper over the cracks?‘ (Metro)

    …he was loaned £58,000 from Conservative Party funds...’ (Guardian)

    If it were taxpayer cash, then I’d be bothered.

    What would the public have him do? What would the average Joe or Joan do? ‘Brazen Gillian Bayford claimed nearly £40,000 in furlough cash – despite winning £148million on the Lottery‘ (The Sun) – there goes that favourite media phrase du jour “despite”

    I can’t afford it! Boris’s cry to aides(Daily Mail)

    So what was he supposed to tell her indoors?

    PM facing rap for free Mustique villa‘ (Daily Mail)

    Women can be very demanding: ‘Emily Eavis on why we need a wild weekend‘ (‘i’); ‘I wanted to combine naughtiness and being a mum Emma Jane Unsworth‘ (‘i’); ‘Lucy Denyer don’t give me cash. I want a proper present‘ (Telegraph) – see what I mean, they want it all these days.

    I suppose he cold have given Carrie: ‘The charity shop challenge. Could I find something that’s right for Ascot?‘ (Telegraph) – that would make him a brave man indeed.

    Any further charges the left-leaning red banner-bearing press or the Brexit-grudge bearing blue starry flag waving media would have us take into consideration before passing sentence by way of a vote in the local elections and awarding ourselves a large fine in the form of Labour council tax rises?

    Anger at PM over “let it rip” outburst on Covid‘ (‘i’) – ‘Johnson accused of causing “untold hurt” to bereaved families

    Bojo is prone to some colourful language, we know he does indulge in some out of the ordinary non-managerial turns of phrase.

    The ‘i’ goes on to berate Johnson with: ‘These callous comments from the PM are like twisting the knife‘ – the ‘i’ there very possibly causing “untold hurt” to bereaved families of knife crime.

    So Mr Shakespeare, may we call you Will? You’ve been summoned before the board of censors, put on the rack and the thumb screws applied, for the reason that complaints have been received from Ye Olde Liberal Caxton Presse about a certain phrase in your play Merchant of Venice. By the way, may we assume it’s a tragedy, not a comedy, because there’s no jokes in it? “Pound of flesh” – this really won’t do. You’re causing “untold hurt” to bereaved families of hanging drawing and quarterings.

    Dyson: BBC twisted truth over my links to the Tories‘ (Telegraph) – suck that up, BBC.

    Civil servants may carry on working from home‘ (Telegraph) – if you’re looking for scandalous special privilleges gifted to governmental insiders you need look no further.

    But let’s not let Johnson off scot free.

    It’s as well to ask cui bono, Bojo? There’s some real scandals out there.

    BBC: ‘Google owner sees record profits as lockdown boom continues

    Speaking of scot free: ‘“Union Dividend” of £2,500 for all Scots… almost 30 times higher than the average English resident‘ (Telegraph)

    Well, what with: ‘40m people live in areas almost free from Covid‘ (Times); and ‘Covid deaths plummet 97%‘ (Metro)

    Time to get the Barnet cut – if you catch my drift. (Barnett Formula)

    Asiseeit – what is the betting on the PMQ session today ? Most questions about decorating or India . ? I guess because of coming elections it will be the former …..as although plenty of Indian MPs will be after ‘aid ‘ to their mother country – there are not so many votes …. and they’re in Labour constituencies anyway .
    By the way – I’ve seen a piece in a national lefty newspaper saying that our national vaccination programme should be diverted to help India . Just ‘no’….

    Maybe the ReichEU can offload all its ‘ unused Oxford supplies to Delhi ?

    Back to the election – I’m sure the BBC and fellow travellers will be desperate to find an anti boris / red Tory mouthpiece to push the ‘vote Labour ‘ campaign further on – my money is on some traitor like Ken Clarke – but we only have to suffer this stuff until 4 May then it disappears …

    …I am no fan of Johnson – but once upon a time people were praying for him when he was being treated for a serious bout of Chinese virus …..

    PM to face MPs’ questions amid political rows

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson will be at Prime Minister’s Questions later for the first time since his former aide Dominic Cummings accused him of planning for donors to “secretly pay” for renovations to his Downing Street flat. Labour accused him of lying over who paid for the works and have demanded a detailed explanation. While No 10 has refused to say whether Mr Johnson initially received a loan to cover the costs, he has told reporters any relevant donations would be declared “in due course”. Mr Johnson is also likely to be asked about accusations he said he would rather see “bodies pile high” than approve a third lockdown. He has described the reports as “total rubbish”.

    What are the rules governing political donations?

    Boris Johnson is under mounting pressure over the funding of his Downing Street flat renovations. Labour wants the prime minister to reveal the full amount spent and who paid for the work in the first place. The government insists no rules have been broken and says any donations will be declared in the proper way.

    Prime ministers are allowed to spend £30,000 a year to renovate their accommodation. The final bill for the latest refit is not known but there has been speculation that it could be as much as £200,000. The government has refused to say whether Mr Johnson received a loan from the Conservative Party to pay for the renovations that were above the annual allowance.

    If this was the case, Mr Johnson would need to demonstrate that the arrangement was consistent with the ministerial code – a government document that sets out the “expected standards” of behaviour in office.

    The dead peroxide soaked hand of Laura wafts throughout too.

    Now Boris is dire. However, the alternatives currently are worse. But if misdeeds are done, holding them to account is necessary.

    Which brings one to the efforts above, which amount to… ideological propaganda.

    Without ‘accusations’ and speculation from sources close to the bbc, bbc news would cease to function.

      Firstly I would not have thought the PM would have wanted a loan of money-he has considerable wealth of his own, and secondly what on earth could be found that would cost £200,000 to redecorate? Its all smoke and mirros.


  18. Thoughtful says:

    I have to laugh at the title piece for this thread that the BBC is “subverting the democratic process” when the UK isn’t a democracy and doesn’t have a democratic process.

    Postal voting subverts the democratic porocess and so does other voting fraud, in many cases it’s pointless voting now.

    Representatives who see election as a ticket to do what they want and advance their own interests in direct opposition to the people who elected them subvert the democratic process.

    England is effectively a one party state and there is no democracy.

      Indeed Thoughtful-Today we have all become slaves; slaves to the powers of mafia Bankster of finance; slaves to the western lie-propaganda; to the lobbies and their giant all dominating corporations – to the war-industry, because we happily believe what we are told about ever-increasing terrorism that needs to be fought with eternal wars; slaves to the environment-destructive hydrocarbon industry; to the pharma-industry; to the Monsantoized agro-industry; to senseless consumerism – and foremost – and summing it all up: to greed, endless greed that drives endless growth, nurturing endless competition fomenting adversity, destroying solidarity, instead of amicable cooperation for a harmonious human cohabitation.
      As people of western nations, we are enslaved to an all-engulfing neoliberal fascism – to a predatory economy. Corporate lie propaganda drip-feeds our brains. We haven’t even noticed it. We are enslaved to so-called ‘leaders’, put in office by obscure foreign masters of deceit – the ever-stronger corporate controlled propaganda machine – the six all controlling Zion-Anglo media (BBC), whom we believe whatever lie they vomit – because it is more comfortable to believe a lie than to confront the truth – that’s self-imposed slave-hood.
      That’s how far we have gone. Because we are clearly on an almost irreversible downward track – sliding and running towards our own demise – into darkness – the darkness of chaos and bloody wars, endless wars against self-invented terrorism; wars that keeps our western economy running – and our armchair politics alive. Wars that kill and slaughter millions upon millions – but all in ‘far-away’ lands. We are told we are protected. Our police and military watch over us.

      An article from the Fail Online about it.


      “Critical acclaim” is a bit of a red flag for many now, awards are worthless and no reflection of either quality or popularity, and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to gauge a programmes popularity through viewing figures because they’re so intentionally hard to find.

      I must admit that I have seen hardly any of these programmes and haven’t heard anyone else express any interest in any of them. In the past I may have watched some of them or at least given them a look, maybe someone might have recommended one of them to me. Now? No.

      The constant need to portray every life experience through the prism of race and to promote every race other than my own as being more worthy, more culturally rich, more spiritually and emotionally enlightened, more empathetic and understanding, more decent, now simply bores me.

      The society depicted in the majority of them is alien to me yet not foreign enough or far enough away to be of any interest at all.

    Very sad as I spent 7 very happy years working and living South Western France-yes their bureaucracy was a little all over the place, but the people were in nearly all cases friendly-yes I spoke reasonable French and that is important if one wants to know the people. However the French are no fools and are learning to believe that they do not live in a true democracy, in fact they consider their lives are in the hands of a few ultra-rich -ultra powerful, mostly in human oligarchs. In most cases these obscure individuals who pretend to run their world have never been elected. Nevertheless I say to the French beware these Military generals, they may well be in league with elements that will not have the countries best interests at heart. In the end however it’s financial or the debt-economy that controls everything.

    TOADY Watch #1 – funny that you should mention him in the same sentence, Nick

    The 8.10 Prime Interview slot was no so much interview more a sort of haranguing of a poor gent, whose name I have forgotten, who was on TOADY as a spokesman for the BJ Party in India, the Party of Premier Narendra Modi. The BBC do not like Narendra Modi. Modi is a ‘Conservative’ or a ‘conservative’.

    Anyway, Nick mentions the DT name – no, not delirium tremens but the other name which leads to a certain Derangement – the name of Donald Trump in the same sentence as Narendra Modi during his harangue of the poor BJ party spokesman. Said spokesman stood up for himself quite well under Nick’s blast of vehemence.

    I do find it strange that the countries that have had the biggest problems with Covid, like the USA under former President Donald Trump and Brazil, with Jair Bolsonaro in charge – and now India – are ones who are not on the BBC ‘Approved Political Colour List’.

    Isn’t that a peculiar coincidence?

    Talking of the BAFTAS some tv critic Caitlin Moran (on Sky) said that after years of complaints that awards ceremonies are inheritantly ‘white’, then this year there has been a complete turn around with some wonderful diverse films being nominated with people of colour and more women being put forward for awards than ever before.

    Well, I find it hard to comprehend that after all the hoo haa about diversity, ‘suddenly’ there are all these amazing films and BAME actors who are being discovered ! Surely they’ve been around all the time, but just weren’t good enough to be included ! THATS the travesty – not that they weren’t in the mix before.

    It is the last PMQs before the House rises for a two-week campaigning break for the local elections on 6 May. The BBC on TOADY understand that the PM will be given a hard time by various opponents. Now why and how do the BBC know that?

    What I find most nauseating, however, is his pretence that Biden is even in charge – at the helm of the ship of state at all.

    Real journalists like Tucker Carlson, on the ground and who know what’s going on, disagree:

    ‘Joe Biden has no active role in running the US government and the White House should no longer be referred to as the ‘Biden administration’. Everyone knows that, but everyone pretends otherwise.’

    What are we to make of the Oscars.

    In the olden days, when a film got an Oscar it was generally accepted that it was a really good film. Ben Hur for example.

    Now, the films that get Oscars are not given them because they are good films but because they tick all the woke boxes.

    The Oscars do have a very useful function which is they show us which films to avoid.

    It’s like books.
    When books and Authors get these various awards and prizes you can bet it’s not because it’s a good read. I don’t think I’ve read any of these prize winning books this century.

    There’s a massive disconnect by all the great and good who award each other these various accolades and trinkets, and the normal people who enjoy a good film or a good read.

    So then, as a rule of thumb, the more prizes won by books/films nowadays the more reason to avoid them.


    • JohnC says:

      I check them out carefully bnefore watching them now. The last ‘winner’ I tried, I turned it off after 10 minutes because it had far too much of a politcal agenda. The trick on IMDB is to ignore the score, but check the ‘User reviews’ and sort for the newest first.
      If you see the scores are all 1/10 or 10/10, it’s woke rubbish. You’ll notice how some of the 10/10’s mention names of people behind the scenes showing they are ‘in the business’ or they say ‘ignore the 1/10 reviews’.
      As far as books go, all the latest ones of my current favourite genre (adult fiction in imaginary worlds where people graphically chop each other to bits with swords and magic) have suddenly made the main characters either gay or gay curious – which does not fit the character whatsoever and stands out a mile as virtue-signalling for the twitter mob by the author. And they always bring a racism message into it somehow as we discover the main character is also a bit woke.
      Once it happens and it doesn’t fit, the essential ‘believable in it’s context’ is lost and the book is rubbished for me.


    • Doublethinker says:

      Agree. Previously my rule of thumb pertained only to the News , never believe a word they say , now I’ve extended it to cover reviews of films , books , music , sport and legal judgements. I’m convinced that the there is an epidemic , no not Covid, raging in the West were people catch the disease and after a few weeks end up Woke. They may look the same, their voice may sound the same but they have undergone a complete rewrire in their brains. It’s just like the 1950’sfilm Invasion of the Body Snatchers , the one with the pods. Now that was a good film unlike the crap produced these days.


    • Tabs says:

      “The Oscars do have a very useful function which is they show us which films to avoid.”

    “The hour is grave, France is in peril”

    It sounds like the French are finally waking up to what’s going on in their country, regarding mass immigration, islamization and terrorism.

    (In ways that we haven’t yet – at least not the establishment.)

    The letter signed by many in the military refers to “several deadly dangers” threatening France, including “Islamism and the hordes of the banlieue”.

    The BBC explains banlieue to mean: “the impoverished immigrant suburbs that surround French cities.”

    Well, BBC, that’s a touchingly delicate way of putting it, designed to evoke sympathy for those poor ‘impoverished’ immigrants.

    How about: ‘festering, lawless, crime-ridden, no-go warzones that are hotbeds of terrorism.’

    Needless to say, the BBC is much more concerned about the letter itself, and the possible consequences (‘far-right’ Marine Le Pen is duly trotted out as the bogeyman) than about the CAUSES that produced the letter in the first place.



    • Old Goat says:

      Despite her not necessarily being anti-EU, Marine le Pen is probably our only hope to turn things around. French people are less than enamoured with Jupiter, and most would be glad to see the back of him.

    BTW when people claim gun laws are exempt due to Magna Carta or 1688/89 Bill of Rights, it usual that parliament did laws that over-road them
    AFAIK almost all such old paragraphs got repealed or over-ruled .. contests don’t sand up in court.


    • Rob in Cheshire says:


      The Metric Martyrs case established that some laws are “constitutional”, and can only be changed by subsequent law if that law is also explicitly “constitutional”. In their case, the Weights & Measures Act 1986 did not override the European Communities Act 1972 because the latter was a “constitutional” law.

      The various Firearms Acts passed since 1920 have never claimed to be constitutional laws. Furthermore the Bill of Rights cannot be amended. As its name suggests, it is not an act of parliament, which is a bill ratified by the crown. When the Bill of Rights was passed in 1689, there was no king. James II had just been ejected in the Glorious Revolution, and William and Mary stood by to take the crown. The Bill of Rights was a statement of the conditions by which they were allowed to do so, and one provision was that Englishmen had the right to bear arms for their own defence.

      Now I am not saying our present left wing judiciary would agree to this, the Supreme Court in particular is an absurd leftist invention of Tony Blair. Nonetheless the Bill of Rights is the fixed foundation of our present constitutional settlement, and no one part of it can be dismantled without the whole thing unravelling.


      • Tabs says:

        On the subject, what about the conflict is laws in place today?Covid regulations cannot override the Human Rights Act (right to family life, right to practise regliion etc) unless there is a proven risk to health – and then only the minimum of disruption is allowed to reduce that risk.
