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 …

    My thoughts exactly Thoughtful ! but I cant imagine the US tax office giving them a free ride, not with all the publicity surrounding their multi million deals !

    BBC Reporting Scotland last night 6.30pm in full SNP campaign mode.

    The first full 7 minutes of this 25 minute programme was dedicated to Boris Johnson & his wallpaper. Absolutely nothing to do with Scotland.

    The main talking points ‘sleaze’, ‘enquiry’ ‘wrong-doing’ ‘investigation’ were repeated continuously between three separate correspondents.

    Presumably the logic is the simplistic talking points repeated often enough will implant in the low IQ voters (who undoubtedly vote SNP anyway) who will then parrot to those around them.

    Good interview on Mike Graham show on his Talk radio interviews with Helen Dale on where all the ‘hate crimes’ comes from! – (as there is no actual UK legislation by parliament passed -at all for this CRIME!) is an interesting factoid – that it was voted on by the Police Commission (trade Union of sorts) to include this as a non-crime ‘thought crime’ unofficially. As Ms Dale is a Lawyer she was able to correctly argue that this ‘non crime’ is the same as that used by the East German Police to quell anybody that is outspoken against the Communists in government. Unfortunately when the Police enter it on the UK data base it is recorded as a REAL crime and entered (with no Court Judgement) on the UK national database to be used as a stick to ban you from future ‘public placement jobs’ i.e. Data Barring Services is used by All schools for examples to ban paedophiles and sexual exploiters or criminals from working with children. Its also use in care homes when working with ‘vulnerable’ ages etc., Its everywhere basically. And this is how the Left have leveraged it into ‘quasi law) even though it officially does not exist!

    George Orwell lives! The mark of true Marxism is imposed top down. No Courts!, No Defence!, No review!. No over site! – juts an ‘an allegation (true or false) is enough for the Police to record the ‘incident’…. they are obligated, although there is no law or crime committed. Its a total abuse of the Police.

    How it works is interesting as its not (officially) part of UK law, however every ‘thought-crime (insert anything the BBC agrees with and campaigns for in the past fort years), add in a left army of Twitter followers permanently OFFENDED by anyone who thinks different to the BBC liberal, Marxist and Trots and we end up where we are. Institution collapse under ‘non-crime’ crimes against the Police.

    And surprisingly (for me) its the Police who have enabled this and avoided any parliamentary scrutiny or vote in parliament. This I can only presume is the work of SADIQ KHAN and his followers so they can promote the East German experience.

    Its worth listening too if you missed it today. We have to challenge this, but it has to be the next Mayor of London and Lawyers (such as Helen Dale) who can clearly see the danger. The BBC will look the other way (as usual). Nothing to see here. Its under the ‘radar’ politically – as they are all afraid of being found out for (alleged) misdemeanours – (that the BBC would use against you as they have access to all public criminal records- as it gets recorded as a ‘CRIME’ even though its unproven and alleged, it can not be removed from the database (DBS) as a CRIME incident.

    Helen Dale (Twitter): https://twitter.com/_HelenDale
    Mike Graham show (11.05pm interview).
    Listen again: https://talkradio.co.uk/radio/schedule

    Daft: All about those (escalating) media “non-crime hate incidents” (and the remarkable story of @SVPhillimore’s Methodist cat and its talent for pooping in South Yorkshire gardens) all investigated and charged by the Police!). Totally mad, yet a serious incident recorded.

    And lets not forget the NICKERLESS STURGEON has imposed this same HATE CRIME that the Police are using into Scottish LAW which makes it it (in Scotland) a true ‘thought crime’ of not voting for the SNP or anything else so even if you have a good legal challenge and (and In the Court case) -it still gets recorded by the Scottish Police as a CRIME and cannot be removed. Where SNP goes the Welsh government will follow and finally the UK will cave in to abandon all COMMON LAW.

    So we have established a process a ‘GUILT’ that is completly at odds with the UK legal system, that you are not guilty until proved in Court is completely by passed. The implications are obviously worrying (not for the BBC) but for the rest of use innocently targetted (that is everyone including children in education) can end up with a Police Record based on a false ‘allegation’ that cannot be removed from UK criminal records). Unless your an illegal immigrant. Then it disappears from all UK records (as that’s -so called – EU based worker discrimination!). Bloody madness.

    When Piers Morgan resigned/was sacked Good Morning Britain lost a lot of viewers and so ITV and GMB have hatched a cunning plan to gain more viewers. For BBC Breakfast.




  5. digg says:

    The dividing of the human race into convenient schisms by the media and in particular, the BBC to enable the vilification of one or another; E.G. Black/White (holy/evil), Women/Men (holy/evil), Gay/Straight (holy/evil) the BBC now tell us via Dawn French that splitting men. women, races, colours up etc. isn’t quite granular enough, we must now learn to even split women for instance into segments to be admired or scorned Under50/Over50 (holy/evil)

    “Dawn French: ‘We need to make sure that we are noticeable'”


    Nice to see some red on red friendly fire casualties amongst the loonies though!

    As if the BBC were not involved:

    Arts critics are being warned by the union Equity to watch what they say. Whatever the intentions, it’s a sinister, anti-free speech move

    Last week, the acting union Equity delivered a new set of guidelines for theatre critics. Among its recommendations was that critics should consider their ethnicity and relative privilege when writing their reviews. The union urged that they “avoid referring to immutable characteristics such as age, race, gender and appearance,…

    So (in brief), more censorship on the way. If not the BBC now rolled out across land for total compliance – or get union black legged. Art Galleries, NT (already caved in), Museums (some not all), local Theater get the treatment to ban anything somebody said was un-‘woke’. Cue close of many London’s Theaters (and venues) as laughter and popular shows are now banned due to censorship. They were exempt up to now.

    As Laurence Fox said, he can no longer work as a professional Actor again in the TV and media industry he once worked in. That is the work of Marxists. The BBC have rules on this, agree with everything left of liberal.



    • StewGreen says:

      That’s similar to NUJ rules
      You label your political opposition “Far right”
      then you apply the NUJ rule
      that you must never report positively on the “far right”

      Of course DEHUMANISING people
      by putting such boo-word labels on them
      is the same as using the N-word label

      As I check I see that 5 months ago the NUJ quietly removed that rule page
      archived : https://web.archive.org/web/20201030044833/www.nuj.org.uk/news/updated-nuj-race-reporting-guidelines-and-efj-manifesto/

      Racist attitudes and the growth of far-right parties pose a threat to democracy, the rights of trade union organisations, a free media and racial equality.
      Its members have a responsibility to stop racism being expressed in the media.
      That media freedom must be underpinned by ethical reporting.
      Publications and media organisations should not originate material which encourages discrimination on the grounds of race or colour, as expressed in the NUJ’s rule book and code of conduct
      Members should have the right to withhold their labour on grounds of conscience where employers are providing a platform for racist propaganda.

      …. Make sure you research the background of racist organisations and their members. For example, see Searchlight *, UAF, reporting the far right and Hope not Hate.

      * AFAIK Searchlight was a Socialist worker based org,
      it lost a big legal case after a Panorama episode and re-emerged as Hope not Hate
      They often seem to act as a front group for Labour
      eg if someone is standing against Labour and poses a risk to their base, the label “far right” will be applied, the person dehumanised, thus clearing the way for Labour.
      Of course there are a few genuine racist totalitarian people.
      Some of them might be plants from the left ..but that is conspiracy theory land.


      • Banania says:

        Is that why the march last Saturday was not reported – that it was a far right occasion? I am just trying to imagine how the BBC (for, instance) might try to justify their non-reporting. (Not that there has been any attempt so far, that I have heard.)

    Jon Snow to leave Channel 4 News after 32 years

    But not entirely leaving it seems
    He will now “front longer-form projects… and represent the channel in other matters”, according to a statement from Channel 4.



    • Fedup2 says:

      He can do a double act with maitliss… maybe he is going to GBTV … or maybe not ….or maybe C4 news knows it’s numbers are about to fall even lower ..


  8. vlad says:

    I can’t get very excited about some curtains and carpets, but what was Boris thinking when he allowed even the slightest appearance of wrongdoing around the issue.

    He must know that is precisely the sort of thing his enemies in Parliament and the media (BBC) are waiting to pounce on.

    Terrible ‘optics’, it evokes corrupt politicians splashing out on luxurious items for themselves. Doesn’t he remember the MP’s expenses scandal? The duck house… the moat…

    Already he had committed the cardinal sins of being white, privileged, middle aged, male, of wealthy family, Eton, Oxford, Bullingdon Club… so many keys waiting to be played by savvy opponents, prejudices to be triggered.


    • Fedup2 says:

      I was really cheesed off with the most thing because I have to pay for my own moat and the duckhouse – life’s’ not fair ….


      • vlad says:

        Tell me about it!

        Duck houses don’t come cheap. Luckily I got mine second hand from a retired MP, but even so.



        • Beltane says:

          ‘Duck houses don’t come cheap….’
          Indeed vlad. Anyone would have to be quackers to suggest otherwise.


    • StewGreen says:

      @Vlad Hasn’t someone been sitting on the story for a long time
      only to activate it just before an election ?

      AFAIK the spending originated in 2019
      Then in March 2020 the idea came up that although the top up money wasn’t paid by the taxpaper , but rather by Boris via a loan from the Tory party, it would be better to cut the party out of the circuit by having donors pay direct into a charity which is the heritage fund for PrimeMinster’s in-office housing.

      What if Boris right before the election releases data that says something like
      “once renovation started it was discovered that beneath wall paper serious structural degradation had taken place that necessitated £130K to fix.
      The PM then insisted they look for a way to not burden the taxpayer .. and found outside donors who paid”


      • vlad says:

        Yes, the timing is convenient, not to say suspect.


      • Thoughtful says:

        Seeing as they didn’t begin the decorating until the last Month it’s difficult to know when t he bill was actually paid, in advance or after it was completed.

        The Mail has a timeline and in March this year there were reports that Carrie Antoinette’s extravagance might run as high as £200K

        It was reported on March 6th that the Tory party had agreed to pay the costs, but there’s clearly something very wrong and possibly illegal or Boris would be much more upfront and open instead of refusing to tell the truth.


        • StewGreen says:

          Tory MP on radio and others said project began in 2019


    • Up2snuff says:

      vlad, someone said on the radio – sorry cannot remember who, but am fairly sure it was Conservative Party MP – that the redecoration/refurbishment at No.10 coincided with the PM catching Covid and going off to hospital.

      Bad timing to catch Covid?

      Where did the infection come from, I wonder?

      Did someone take advantage, perhaps?

      While the cats away, the doggie did play …

  9. StewGreen says:

    R4 Book show is so black these days
    this gaslighting you get from Radio4
    which gives you the impression Britain is 50% black
    Black presenter Johnny Pitts has just said to black playright Dreda Say Mitchell
    so in a week which brought us the result in Chauvin over George Floyd” …

    Blurb “Chester Himes is an often overlooked favour of his Black American contemporaries , despite also attempting to carve out a literary career in Paris.
    With his better-known Harlem detective series being reissued, his biographer Lawrence P. Jackson* and crime writer Dreda Say Mitchell discuss his prescient legacy.

    * Prof of African American studies and English at Emory University

    I’m sure there are plenty of good black conservatives writers like Thomas Sowell, but again the Radio4 view is that black conservatives don’t exist


  10. StewGreen says:

    The Guest on R4’s media show was Imriel Morgan she was promoting her podcast Wanna Be which ostensibly is for arts industry workers
    Yet each episode seems to have a black presenter with black guests.

    An old time real world university archaeologist sent me a note
    “I have tried to tell people that the past was a rough place and rougher for the British working class than it was for slaves
    – they were property and people looked after property.
    Slaves were never cheap: if you worked a mill worker to death you went to the factory gate and whistled for another one.
    The element of self-hatred from the fascist left is appalling.

    Are we seeing the climax of ‘climate change’ before the end when people realise how much it is going to cost THEM?
    Cold houses, no cars, no foreign travel
    (unless you are flying from LA to London for an XR demonstration
    or can get a friend to take you across the Atlantic in their yacht).


  12. Fedup2 says:

    You know how we always say that the BBC has no sense of humour ? Well it has been repeating a series about Watergate – which i guess from decades ago . It was not woke .
    The humour comes from history repeating itself from a media hating a president and doing everything to get rid of him .

    Obviously the outcome is the same but the method a bit different.


  13. theisland says:

    “As President Joe Biden wraps up the first 100 days of his term, many public opinion polls show he has the support of a majority of the American public.”

    “A stunning CBS poll which claimed 85 percent of Americans embraced Joe Biden’s joint address speech last night has turned out to be a fraud, with pollster YouGov surveying just 169 Republicans as part of the broader 943 people polled.”

    They lie and lie and lie.


  14. vlad says:

    The BBC are loving Biden’s speech… his ‘vision’.

    Well of course they do: it’s tax-and-spend, big government socialism.

    Other commentators are less enamoured.

    “English Channel migrant crossings reach daily high for 2021”
    “The government vowed to make the journey “unviable” and is planning to make it more difficult for asylum seekers who arrive in the UK via illegal means to remain in the UK.”

    The “planning” should have been completed when we voted for Brexit back in 2016.
    The Border Farce is broken, The Home Office is broken.
    The French are laughing at as while we pay them. Vote for The Reform Party or UKIP and send a message to the Tory MPs.
    Nice photograph of a floating chocolate teapot though?


  16. Fedup2 says:

    BBC news – very disappointed that it didnt lead on illegal decorating . Instead it led for 5 minutes on something about leaseholders and cladding ? Then it got back to illegal decorating and ‘ pressure building ‘ and ‘ inquiries ‘ and ‘ reviews ‘ and ‘ formal investigations ‘ .

    Will the PM grip the rail as the PM or a private citizen ?

    BBC shows pictures of PM in waiting – starmet in a DiY shop getting wall paper.

  20. Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

    Radio 4’s ‘PM’ was biased almost all the way through. The section on the British elections and the Hartlepool Westminster seat was an exception and seemed fairer to me.

    Evan Davis failed to question a US Democrat, who when praising Biden’s speech had claimed the Republicans were just the party of the very rich: no reference to the huge wealth of the Bidens, Clintons or others such as John Kerry (or to HOW they made their money); no questions about why the super-rich such as Gates, Dorsey, Zuckerberg and the Hollywood crowd support the Democrats; nothing about whether it will be affordble.

    Plenty of stuff about Tory sleaze and parallels with the Major government in the 1990s but, of course, nothing about “whiter than white” New Labour’s mishaps such as Robin Cook & Gaynor Regan, Mandelson’s loan from G Robinson, John Prescott, etc, after 1997. A woman was allowed to get away with stating that the severe weather in Texas at the end of winter was caused by climate change, with no challenge from Davis.

    So many questions could have been asked to provide more balance … but Evan showed no interest. The bias by tone and omission is startling.


    • Dobyns says:

      Mustapha, FWIW most of Kerry’s wealth is through his wife Teresa whose late husband was a Heinz … yes THAT Heinz family


  21. Deborah says:

    BBC1 news at 6pm and the lead story was about the cladding and proof that in the BBC’s eyes, the Conservatives cannot do anything right. It doesn’t matter that the government has given £5 billion of our money to replace the cladding on the tallest buildings and loans to others.

    We saw a young woman who with her partner, is thinking of going bankrupt. What the BBC’s report failed to tell us was how much the couple would need to find to pay their share of the removal, could they borrow the money or are they maxed out (?), have their income been affected by covid? Without that information the interview was meaningless.

    We then went on to flatgate. 4 potential investigations the BBC said. Chris obviously thinks the more investigations, the more likely Boris is guilty. The mere fact that it would be guilty of having an apartment owned by the country done up isn’t considered.

    Then we had an item about a whole lot of non British people being vaccinated in London.

    As I type it is an adoration of Biden and how wonderful it is that he can spend a lot of money by just asking the richest to pay a tiny bit more. Now where have I heard that before?

    I can stand no more and have decided I don’t care about the BBC’s guess about tomorrow’s weather.


    • Fedup2 says:

      I know a bit about leadeholders being ripped of by labour councils . I helped fight a case where the council charged each leadeholder £29k on flats valued at £200k for a new roof they didnt need .
      Luckily we won the case on thr ground of failure to ‘ consult ‘ and the bill dropped to £250 each . I learnt a lot about the inbred tribunal system …,

      You notice they dont mention what the cladding was for in these cases ? Take a guess – i think greta might be involved …

      It doesn’t matter that the government has given £5 billion of our money to replace the cladding on the tallest buildings and loans to others.

      The BBC report on cladding lasted all of 4 minutes.

      During that time, the government 5 billion and loan scheme was mentioned twice. The government’s claim that the new bill would make properties safer was also mentioned twice.

      The report then ended with a government statement that leaseholders shouldn’t have to pay (note the word; “shouldn’t”) and that it’s approach; “strikes the right balance protecting leaseholders and also being fair to taxpayers”.

      Strange, the things you choose not to hear.

    Wow i managed 19 minutes of the 6 pm news with one of those coloured autocue readers speaking to people for whom Engleesh is a second language –

    Something about some lefty law outfit called ‘bad law’ going after the government of PPE contracts ( no clips of dying crying or bitching NHS staff )

    And that was enough


  23. Deborah says:

    BBC1 6pm news, just to add to the above; I could hear the sneer in Hugh Pym’s voice when he reported that Matt Hancock had his vaccination today, ‘ aged 42 the youngest age that anyone can have it at the moment.’ It sounded as though the age had only been lowered to 42 purely to let Matt get his jab.

    BBC reporters are just horrible.


  24. Thoughtful says:

    Lets face it, the Tories are ethnically cleansing the airwaves of White people, perhaps if you get to ever see one in person yuuou might ask them why they think this is a good thing?

    “Front Row” on Radio 4 has, just for a change, someone talking about his new history of White racism to Samira Ahmed. At least she won’t have to prostrate herself, because of her brown skin, unlike Jon Wilson or some other honky presenter.

    Interesting that there’s no mention of racism by other ethnic groups and that the history starts with the Crusades. Rhetorical question: what were the Crusades a response to?


    • Fedup2 says:

      I was struck by the treatment the false president got regarding his 100 day speach to thr congress – neither C4 or the BBC had any opposition view – just worship from afar

  27. Londoner says:

    This is my first post on here, although I’ve been reading other people’s posts for a while. Just for a kick off I’d like some advice on a news site to use as a home page on my PC. Up till now I’ve used the BBC News site, but it’s become easily as biased as any other news reporting on the BBC. I’ve had to completely give up watching the TV news as it’s just like watching a 45 minute Labour Party political broadcast, not that ITN bulletins are much better.

    I’m completely sick of being greeted by Anglophobic political correctness as soon as I turn my computer on, so any advice on a fairly comprehensive and relatively unbiased news site would be welcome.

    I don’t feel able to give up paying the licence fee as I want to continue using my TV, including some terrestrial channels occasionally, although I seldom watch BBC any longer as every programme seems to carry a socialist message.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Welcome aboard – i know its tricky regarding the licence – but the post by taffman is a help ( first one i think ) .
      As for alternative news sources – i like bloomberg but very often it is as much a matter of what is prioritised or omitted as anything else .

      There is no pretence of objectivity in the BBC anymore .


      • Garry Lavin says:

        I think Bloomberg is regarded as being left liberal.


        • Up2snuff says:

          Probably most sites are, Garry. Huff Post for example.

          Londoner, welcome. I use YahooNews and MicrosoftNews (MSN) in conjunction with the BBC web-pages and a look at the front pages of the newspapers on the BBC web-site. They all tend to be lefty-liberal or Socialist, the only exception being the Telegraph on a good day.

          After a while, one becomes used to the language and can start to read between the lines. It’s what people had to do in Russia and the Soviet bloc in Eastern Europe during the Cold War days.


          • Londoner says:

            Thanks Up2snuff. I take your point about how people had to read the news in the Soviet bloc, but I think the difference was that most people knew that only the government line was being peddled, but how many people in this country are aware that they are being sold a lie by the left here?

            Maybe people are less gullible than I give them credit for being.


        • Fedup2 says:

          Yes thats fair but it seems a bit more factual than the propaganda drive of the BBC …


    • Philip_2 says:

      Hi Londoner, welcome. In my opinion its dangerous to rely on a single new feed. You cannot trust FaceBook or Google to deliver news that will largely mirror what you see on BBC TV or radio. There is a lack of independent news in this country until GMB come online to match Talk radio. And then we have no TV stations as Sky has been taken over by the left as well. Although the liberals by vote claim 8% they control 97% of the news online TV and radio. That is the management training, the rest are low grade Marxists and Trots, – as loyal followers to the cause of Socialism at its deepest level of misinformation, division. They call this Human Rights (which is misnomer cover for the abolition of Human rights – as that is only possible under Communism). Everybody equal is the basis of Communism, that you do not have any rights nor can you expect any. As such I don’t rely on any online News feed but several independent news and views you see often on this site I read at least four different newspapers a week which shroud include Then Guardian (as whatever they say will appear on the BBC feed channels. The BBC does not do research based Journalism but relies on ‘news feeds’ from the likes of SOROS and supporters posing as Climate or Human rights activists.

      The EU is based on such an idea of communal ideals.

      We have mission creep in the media and even The Times and Telegraph have to tow the line to survive legally in the minefield. The newspapers have to have independent verifications and a right or reply or you can cal IPSO for example and the TV and Radio media have OFCOM which notably sides with the BBC (and makes it very difficult to voice any complaint against the BBC even when its verified and logged under (FOI) and admitted – its almost impossible to take the BBC to court. The BBC Charter gives them immunity from prosecution. Its not easy finding news that’s accurate as all news can be altered to suit a purpose. There are those in government who rely on the BBC for misinformation and they will protect it as a vital asset for herding the populations confused about what a climate emergency really means. For that you have to read the newspapers and find out what treaties we have signed as a nation and what this means. We are in UNAgenda21 crisis control to be followed by the next UN Agenda30. So whatever happens next is usually hidden in small print that the globalists hope to profit from. All we can do is hope to survive intact and pray that it will all fall apart as it does in every nation that has Communal politician goals and quest to divide all people into factions, races and impossible sexes. Divide and Conquer is what you do in war time. We are at war, the enemy is clever and desperate, and they control most of the media. So beware, no news feeds are accurate without some research, which makes us all very sceptical of all news reports on mainstream TV or online, its like fast food and its not healthy. We have to question the news.

        Philip, very interesting points. Makes me feel even more scared than I did already!

      This may help ?

      @Londoner “any advice on a fairly comprehensive and relatively unbiased news site would be welcome.”
      News media is entertainment not education

      Everyday a million stories happen across the world
      but UK media doesn’t attempt to give a scientific representation.
      Instead they go about creating News Soap opera to push pet agendas
      selecting 50 odd stories and banging on about 4 or 5 .
      They also waste lots of time on speculation instead of waiting for stories to play out.
      If you follow a few people on Twitter you come across lots of news stories an then you can decide to read deeper.
      That way you avoid dancing to London media’s tune.

    Alert Non-lefty on Radio4 tonight
    Geoff Norcott ” one consequence of Covid is that the right wing comedian, like many people, has had his most solid convictions challenged repeatedly by events.

    A lot of Geoff’s long-held beliefs have been challenged by a politically and culturally turbulent twelve months; it can be confusing to have a supposedly right-wing government locking us at home and getting cheered on by large parts of the left, and it’s a lot harder for Geoff to explain why he believes in a small state when the government is in the process of successfully rolling out a vaccine.

    People ask Geoff if he regrets voting for a Conservative government but, looking at the casual attitude to debt,
    he says he now regrets not getting one!


  29. Londoner says:

    Thanks FedUp2, It’s a case of looking around I guess, and also hope that a less biased news organisation recognises a niche. I’ll anyway continue monitoring the BBC News site so as to know what they’re getting up to. I notice they’re leading on Grenfell Tower yet again this evening. It’ll probably be Stephen Lawrence tomorrow.

    Not much chance of any objective reporting from the BBC any more.


  30. Thoughtful says:


    This story needs far wider coverage, but probably won’t get it.

    Starmer says Burnham Manchester Mayor is what it looks like when Labour is in power, and yet Burnham has made a disgraceful mess of running Manchester with the Police so bad they are in special measures, and Burham won’t accept any kind of responsibility for what he has done.

    Here is the kind of comments you see:

    “Goodness… I’m a Labour voter and this is just **horrid cringe** from Starmer.”

    “Thanks for the warning Keir, this is absolutely hilarious. “


    • tomo says:

      What did Manchester expect from Burnham ?

      He was the health minister presiding over the Stafford Hospital fiasco and effectively enabled the evasion of accountability by the goons managing and the swines perpetrating abuse of patients.

      Ghastly little toad.


      • maxincony says:


        He was the health minister presiding over the Stafford Hospital fiasco…

        Popular misconception.

        The “Stafford Hospital fiasco” occurred between 2005 and 2008. Andy Burnham became Secretary of State for Health in 2009.

          That’s the tax that robs from the poor to give to the rich.


      • StewGreen says:

        Daily Telegraph said Burnham first blocked inquiry
        “Former Health Secretaries Andy Burnham and Alan Johnson ignored 81 requests for a public inquiry into Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust in the two years after it was first warned of poor NHS care, it has…”

        The local paper says Burnham blocked an OPEN inquiry about the scandal
        \\ I have no regrets over Stafford Hospital scandal, says Andy Burnham
        Mr Burnham appointed Robert Francis QC to find out went wrong at Stafford between 2005 and 2009, when hundreds of patients died needlessly and appalling standards of care were widespread.
        However campaigners blame him for blocking the inquiry from being held in public – a decision that was reversed by the Tories – and for setting up a smaller and more limited investigation.

        His answer
        They – critics – say I wouldn’t have a public inquiry. The Department of Health didn’t want an inquiry. They…

        “When I look at the state of the hospital today, I don’t think I did the wrong thing.”//

        Times : “The families of victims of neglect at Stafford are laying much of the blame at Andy Burnham’s door”


        • maxincony says:


          Ok, I see you’ve decided to change the subject from “who presided over the Stafford Hospital fiasco” to something about “the inquiry”. Nice dodge. Would you call that *not arguing in good faith* perhaps?

          Daily Telegraph said Burnham first blocked inquiry

          The Telegraph article says no such thing. Why Lie?


          • StewGreen says:

            The fiasco includes the handling of the investigation after the actual deaths

            The same applies to Hillsborough
            Lots of people died on the day
            but what sucked for the relatives was the decades of blocking of proper prosecution of those involved, the lies the fobbing off etc.

            lie ? I gave the quote, saying they blocked a *public inquiry* fobbing relatives off with an inquiry that went on in private.
            I told no deliberate “lie”
            You argue in bath faith as usual.

  32. Foscari says:

    I can understand The Daily Mail with its continued
    attack on Boris Johnson and how much his wallpaper
    for 10 Downing Street costs . The Mail is just a populist
    newspaper, and a successful one, in its mostly
    successful exposures on what they believe their readers
    want to read. In the thirties they believed that fascism was
    becoming popular and started to support Mosley and
    his black shirts. In fact if Hitler had successfully invaded
    the UK in 1940 , I expect one newspaper would
    of been allowed “The Daily Mail Zeitung.” They thought
    the views of Dr Andrew Wakefield the quack who opposed
    the MMR vaccination in the nineties. It was taken in by
    some gullible readers . However it only cost the lives of a
    few dozen kids who contracted measles. But personally I
    don’t really think that the general public gives a monkeys
    how much the wallpaper cost and where the money comes
    Of course there is a comparison with the BBC who have
    their own facetious version of the wartime broadcaster
    from Germany William Joyce affectionally known as
    Lord Haw Haw. The BBC have their own Lady Haw Haw
    the facetious Laura Kuenssberg who tales great pleasure
    in another German word , schadenfreud, especially when
    it comes to Boris Johnson. Just as we had Haw Haw
    with his ” Germany calling, Germany calling” with his mocking
    of Winston Churchill. We now have Kuenssberg calling with
    her mocking of Boris Johnson.
    Let me tell you something Daily Mail and the BBC , we the
    general public have a score or more problems in our lives
    right now, than to care about the furnishings of 10 Downing

    Talking of the Mail, I have just seen the ‘breaking news’ apparently, Noel Clarke the black actor has been suspended by BAFTA after 20 women accused him of groping and harassment.

    Veteran BBC DJ ‘is sacked’ after criticising bosses for axeing his Saturday night show ‘because his elderly audience are the wrong type of listeners’



    • StewGreen says:

      DJ David Allen goes on air to say his popular radio show was being axed by BBC bosses because his elderly audience are “the wrong type of listeners”
      He had hosted a 3hr music request slot of 60’s-80’s music, he called the decision very sad – ageism is rife at the Beeb!

      He said: “The BBC, in its wisdom, have (sic) decided that after 20 years and amazingly good listening figures, that this show will sadly come to an end on the 15th of May.

      He goes on to say the audience share for his programme is the best on the station, nearly three times that of Radio 2 and over four times that of any commercial radio station in (our) transmission area.


      It’s the same thing they did to great Cambridgeshire weekend night presenter Richard_Spendlove and his Eastern Counties syndicated show
      His listener all kept saying Brexit was a great idea, so the BBC managers found a pretext to sack him in 2017

      His show had a large cult following and focused on War and National Service memories.
      His statement slags BBC senior management

    by setting up lots of Labour & Anti-Brexit groups
    and those group names and images would keep appearing in people’s news feeds.

  36. Sluff says:

    Oh yes. A luvvie implosion.

    Someone called Noel Clarke, who used to be a ‘companion’ on Dr Who, was awarded a BAFTA outstanding contribution award just a couple of weeks back, presumably for the all-important factor of being black.

    But tonight BAFTA are holding back on the award, as it has emerged around 20 women are accusing Clarkej of sexual harrasment and bullying, or the like. BAFTA knew of the accusations two weeks before the award but went ahead anyway.

    There is a contributor to this site called ‘the left will eat itself’.
    And so it is with the luvvies.
    And it is rather wonderful to watch it happening for real.

    Alex Belfield, scourge of the BBC, has apparently been temporarily banned from YouTube. According to his recent Facebook video, it’s for quoting Chris Whitty.

    Look out ! – menthol cigarettes are racist. So they want to ban them.
    Why the proposed US ban on menthol cigarettes is controversial
    Oh those poor victims AGAIN I thought. Is there no end to how unfair life is to them ?.
    So I scanned the article looking for why they are racist.
    Nothing. Alarm bells rang.
    So I used google. It seems they kill more black people simply because more black (and LGBTQ+ (a ridiculous abbreviation which sums up just how stupid these people are) ) people choose to smoke them. Of course they will switch to normal cigarettes afterwards – but that’s OK because they kill a lot of white people as well.
    They really are scraping the bottom of the barrel now.


    • Dobyns says:

      JohnC, IIRC from my life in America menthol cigarettes were heavily marketed and the preference in the Black community

    Nothing. Alarm bells rang. So I used google…

    Dobyns is correct. Maybe you should rant less and read more.



    • JohnC says:

      If they want to ban them, the point is that they should ban them to prevent ALL children smoking them. Not announce it is just because black people are smoking them. With the direct inference it wouldn’t matter if it were killing white people.
      Do you even realise how racist this article is maxi ?.
      No. I don’t think you do.
      Why do you think making strict laws to prevent the sale of these cigarettes doesn’t work maxi ?. Do you think it might be because in general, the black community don’t give a sh!t about the law ?.
      Not the sharpest tool are you ?. But maybe the biggest.

    “ Covid deaths: More than 20m living in areas with zero Covid deaths”

    Will Al Beeb acknowledge the fact that this all down to Brexit and Nigel Farage in getting us out of the EU, enabling Great Britain the freedom to acquire the vaccine and to protect its people long before those living under the cosh of the EU’s parliament?
    Why hasn’t Nigel Farage been knighted?
