Midweek Thread 2June 2021 Bashir2?

As the Biased Far Left Anti British BBC hoped everyone would look away from their corrupt prodigy – Martin Bashir – it will now be publishing a report trying to explain why he was re hired as ‘Religious Editor ‘.
Maybe someone wanted to put a fox in the chicken coop .On the downside – expect a whitewash . On the upside -it will do even more damage to the BBC ..

          Yes, am familiar with 42, including Level 42 😉 both of them.

          It was the first time I had listened to MoL in ages. Apparently, Tim Harford posed the question in last week’s prog (first in new series) about adding 48 to 27. Part of today’s prog was dealing with the many e-ms from listeners how they did it to arrive at correct answer: 75. Because of past ‘influences’ on me [ work 😉 ] I tend to do it in columns. 4+2=60, 8+7=15, 60+15=75.

          I knew what your post was about, so I was just being BBC-related to everything, life, the universe and all that, and asked for you to do the extra sum. As I typed, I was a bit worried it might add up to 111 for you 😉 😉 but it doesn’t. Phew! Have a great day.

    Apropo the millionaire tennis player who has mental issues.

    In my working career I spent many years in the local Mental Health Department at our local Hospital (as an employee – not a patient!). It was well known within the health service that mental health was always the poor relation and at the back of the queue when it came to getting handouts from the yearly budget.

    How times have changed !

    With the world and his celebrity/sporting/pop singer / tv presenter / royalty / wife now going public about their mental state and ongoing issues, every mental health unit in the country must now be first in line to get a topped up budget from their local health authority. I blame all the ‘counsellors’ who have been wheeled out in the past two or three decades whenever a community tragedy has taken place. We’ve arrived at the stage where ‘therapy’ is required if a false nail has fallen off.

    What we learned from Starmer on ITV

    Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer was Piers Morgan’s guest on ITV last night, in which he answered questions about his life and times in front of a live studio audience. In a wide-ranging interview, Sir Keir spoke tearfully about the death of his mother Josephine from Still’s disease, how his “difficult” relationship with his father had an impact on him as a parent, and the slightly less than romantic manner in which he met his wife. In terms of his politics, Sir Keir said he wanted to go on a summer tour of the UK to meet people “who are no longer voting Labour”. He also admitted that his party has a “huge task” in turning its fortunes around. You can read about the five things we learned from his appearance on ITV’s Life Stories here.

      Why are house prices rising so fast?

      UK house prices are soaring. Official figures show they have been increasing at their fastest rate for more than a decade despite the country being gripped by a pandemic. The UK’s biggest building society, the Nationwide, has described the housing market as “buoyant”. Potential first-time buyers and movers may have more of a sinking feeling, as some watch the likelihood of owning move further out of reach. One notable boom area has been Cornwall which, according to property search site Rightmove, overtook London as the most popular search destination for property buyers. The reason for that is many buyers are engaged in a race for space. They want bigger homes with room to live and work, as well as a garden and easy to reach coast or countryside. The trouble is, they are in short supply.

How this son of a working class couple who went to a state school and lived in a grotty flat, made good. It finished up by asking if he reminded anyone of a previous Labour leader (TB) But the comments could be going better.

      Imagine him tweeting that against a BAME lefty.. there’d be outrage.

      in the real world journos would certainly call back a Tory if they thought his thinking was flawed, cos then they could expose him ..a gotcha.
      Not calling him back, means his arguments looked GOOD so they chose to deny him publicity.
      But the more likely explanation is BBC incompetence.

    The Guardian, the BBC and the Times each prioritise news of the Sir Keir Starmer TV interview with Piers Morgan – draw your own conclusions as to their respective political leanings.

    The BBC online news adopts the rather pedagogic tone of the modern left bringing us a Cliff’s Notes style summary of the show: ‘Five things we learned about Sir Keir Starmer‘ – In other words – what you need to know. I do hope you’re concentrating, you may be tested on this later.

    A smart PR man could have knocked me down with a feather – straight in at number one we have Keir fact numero uno – proof if you needed it of Sir Keir’s empathy for pandemic anxiety suffers/victims/relatives: ‘The Labour leader has often spoken of his mother, Josephine Starmer, and her painful experiences living with Still’s Disease

    Huge apologies to anyone with this condition or their relatives, friends, supporters, empathisers etc… but I’ve no notion of what this illness is without looking it up.

    I shan’t bother with the next four fun Keir facts, for fear of narcolepsy setting in. That’s the chronic disorder characterised by overwhelming daytime drowsiness.

    Oddly the Times frontpage picks up on the elements of the interview most likely to endear the personality-challanged Labour leader to the youth vote: ‘Young dude. Sir Keir Starmer… recalled his university days’

    Cue David Bowie – “All the young dudes, Carry the news, Boogaloo dudes…”

    …and refused to deny using drugs‘ – Hey man!

    He said his best physical feature was his hair’

    Careful, Sir Keir, Boris has you beat even on the crazy hairstyle front.

    The Guardian frontpage meanwhile takes the rather risky strategy of publishing the pin up pic of the adolescent Keir you’ll see in the Times but makes a guess who puzzle game out of the politically anonymous Labour leader currently failing to break through with the public: ‘Who’s that boy? Picture emerges of young leader. But what’s his name?

    Is it Vladimir Putin before he had his quiff shaved off to join the KGB?

    Anyway, the Express frontpage ingores the young Keir with his mop of hair and his grunge-style lumberjack shirt to bring us some news: ‘ZERO. UK records no covid deaths

    File this next one under turkeys voting for christmas: ‘Be green and let your lawn go brown, RHS tells gardeners‘ (Times) – that’ll be the Royal Horticultural Society.

    Why don’t they take it to the next green level and suggest we concrete our front gardens over and build battery car recharger points in place of all that outmoded suburban privet and pampas grass?

    The ‘i’ newspaper quotes someone or other saying: ‘I’m proud to be called a lesbian‘ – what a way to start the day, I guess it makes a change from all the trans news with which we are presented these days.

    In completely unrelated news the Daily Star warns of the: ‘End of the fag break

    This abrupt exclaimation is explained by the Telegraph report: ‘Council comes after smokers outdoors. Smokers face being banned from lighting up outside restaurants and offices in Oxfordshire, under plans for the country to go “smoke-free” by 2025

    It’s reassuring to know that even should covid and every other related virus be completely and utterly eradicated from the face the earth, our fabulous public health officials won’t be left unemployed.

    I see that there is pressure from some scientists , but by no means all, to prolong the lockdown past 21 June. I have been a strong supporter of the gov policy re Covid as I believed and still believe it was the best way to protect a lot of vulnerable people. (I know many users of this site have not been and regarded it as causing immense damage to the livelihoods of millions for not a great deal of gain overall) .
    However, I can see no reason for prolonging the lockdown now. Virtually all of those in the groups which have been vulnerable have been doubledosed, which we know gives a very high degree of protection, those people who h avnt been double dosed are in groups were Covid has not resulted in hospitalisation let alone deaths. This includes the effects of the Indian variant. So what purpose would prolonging the lockdown serve? Total elimination of the disease is impossible as it would have to be a global elimination. Unless of course Boris could guarantee that no one , absolutely no one , could enter or leave the country . We have to hope that the current vaccines and the future ones that will be developed, defend us against the new variants which inevitably will arise.

      Yes, but “double-dosed” with what exactly? It isn’t a vaccine, and even if it was, it hasn’t been through the required rigorous testing for such medication. It causes side-effects in some – often serious, sometimes fatal, and goodness knows what the long term effects will be. People are improperly informed of the risks, and are bribed with certain “freedoms” if they submit, regardless of whether or not having had the “vaccine”, it makes any difference to anything. Those who are rightly sceptical have become pariahs and victims of social division.

      There is an agenda driving the “need” to have the population of the planet “vaccinated” – and I suspect it’s nothing to do with the ‘flu variant known as Covid.

      I have no intention of submitting.

        Spot on Old Goat. Its actually an MRNA gene therapy that alters the immune system. Remember all the protests a few years back regards GM foods?

        A jab that’s been allowed under botched legislation and rushed science (when compared to normal processes for developing new treatments) needs to be carefully though about and the reasons behind it questioned and debated.

        Regards Covid, the ‘Government’ and their communist advisors in SAGE have been moving the goalposts since week one on this. Its akin to psychological warfare on the week minded, aided and abetted by the BBC and MSM. The biggest con has been the clear policy to leave the borders open and allow all and sundry in, whilst locking up the indigenous population. How on any level can that be considered correct? Its akin to a war crime – if the virus is a bad as HMG and the scientists claim.

        What would the obese, unhealthy and general lazy British make of a daily 5pm update of new diabetes cases, cancer cases and deaths, Road Traffic accidents, domestic violence, London knife attacks…

          Vaccination will be mandatory for anyone who wishes to travel abroad, at port of departure or destination, and points between. So too the return journey.

          In effect, vaccination will be compulsory. And it will take its appearance as an EU vaccine passport. Better still a WHO vaccine passport – global, and funds the WHO too. Too, it will trump a future Trump.

          What has been getting on the nerves of control freaks is that ordinary people were getting more and more freedom to arrange their own lives, move about the world, and getting used to it as Normal. This is unacceptable to any self-respecting control freak.

    Not the BBC, but most TV channels are equally awful these days…

    On Channel 5 last night we had Anne Boleyn, the first of a three part drama about Henry’s second wife. I think we all know it’s not going to end well…
    The ghastly and increasingly pathetic Daily Mail has been won over; “Jodie Turner-Smith’s casting as a black Anne Boleyn has caused much debate, but she will quickly win you over with her majestic performance.” I just couldn’t watch this utter nonsense. I love history and this constant corruption of my heritage is deeply troubling. Mind you, I’m really looking forward to their dramatized biopic of Nelson Mandela…played by Ray Winston…

    Equally revolting was ITVs double header with two of the most repulsive creatures in Christendom, Piers Morgan and Sir Keir Starmer having a chat. For the love of God have mercy, or a least pass the sick bucket.

    Once again from the ridiculous Daily Mail; “But don’t think Piers will let him off lightly on his rather uninspiring performance as leader of the opposition so far.”
    Rather uninspiring! Are you having a bleedin’ laugh? Somehow the Labour Party have managed to elect a leader who’s actually even worse than Corbyn. It’s incredible. Starmer oozes insincerity and has all the personality of a suet pudding. Eugh.

    Get out of my pub!

          Interestingly on the Letters page in the Express yesterday, a reader asked why there wasn’t more outrage and discussion on the colour blind casting in this production, and how our history was being messed with.

          The easy answer is that columnists, tv critics and reviewers dare NOT even mention this distortion of history for fear of being cancelled on social media, and ‘disgusting outrage’ by the Millenium offended. Much easier to praise it and keep their jobs !

          The only objections I’ve heard and read about it are on here or in conversation with friends. Certainly the press are jogging along with it – which means, sod popular opinion and therefore more distortions will be in the pipeline !

He would think we were mad to stop Capital Punishments, mad to give people so much with many of them never really working for the benefit of a free land-No we have no free land anymore. Lucky as I am to look out at beautiful countryside just yards from my front door, lucky to be able to watch the birds feed, the sheep in next field enjoying rich grass, BUT for how much longer before the dogs of war come upon us.

            I’ve been in a bit of reflective mode . What would your dad think ?( how old was he at Dunkirk ?)

            The formation of the welfare state post war was something that should have been done after WW1.- it was about the only benefit the UK got at the end . Hard to see it as a ‘win’.

            Unfortunately the welfare state has become a way of life for far too many . Obviously the BBC loves it .

            There is an ongoing cultural war fighting for the past present and future now . Brexit was a win for my side . I was well aware of the EU – and the cancer that it is .

            Personally I worry now about our membership of NATO – the attack on one – attack on all – has good and bad features – but could kick off an ‘unplanned ‘ war in a way we might not be able to withstand – whatever the size of the military .

            But the immediate future – the economy after covid – is likely to be shocking – unless the Chinese pay what they should for causing the virus .

            I’m in the med at the moment – mainly empty – and waiting to see what the ‘travel review ‘ next week will bring . ….

            Elsewhere – I don’t get lockdowns any more . That whole script for a whole year about saving the NHS doesn’t work anymore . What the hell was vaccination for if it is effective – even with variants . ?

            Open up the economy – return freedoms – tell the welfare state – the NHS – teaching and the rest to get on with what they’ve got and stop asking for more . But too many are addicted now …

              Fedup2 my dad was 25 years old whilst on the beaches of Dunkirk. I’m now 79, but only own up to 65, fit and well! Yes indeed Brexit was a win for my side also-whish I was also out of the UK-spent 7 years living in Southern France, loved it made many friends and yes I spoke reaonable French, same with Spanish, so just right now if I had the spondulucks I would live in Southern Spain and take ny chances-Spain used to have an excellent health service-not all free of course. Goodness knows if the UK will ever be able to recoup its losses as a result of a Hitler style Lockdown which served little purpose-the virus was kept indoors and once the doors were open again-wooooof out it comes to find new hosts-your last para, agree absolutely let’s get on with life , where is the true grit we once had or at least the majority did. Now as you point out this nation has become to soft with ever the waiting hand for some benefit or other. Trouble is most benefits have gone to wrong people-what on earth is any but the most basic benon UK shores every day.

        Good question.

        If this docudrama succeeds there will be a line of such docudramas. The tragedy is that as real history, maths and science are not taught, young people will come to believe all manner of distortions, so that eventually nothing is believed. This results in breaking up ties that bind people, to history and place. This has always been the aim of the left.

Glad to say that my grandchildren were horrified to note this distortion and knew it was not only totally incorrect but a stab at promoting BLM. Young people are not all dead from the neck up.

          If certain groups of free thinkers are denied NHS treatment, given the NHS, its quiet possible that they survive to an old age. Which would probably be an undesired outcome.

          Given the immense waste in the NHS, it has to come up with some sort of a formula to determine which life to save, and which not. So presumably a male smoker would not get treatment even if he has paid into the NHS all his working life.

          This would be totally contrary to natural justice.

          Equity should demand a two tier NHS.

      Victoria’s tweet is similar to the school bully tweet above

      This time the school bullies are playing us by taking the parody as if it were scientific allowing them to play the victim.

      The Telegraph has a report on the large increase in migrants coming across on boats. Here are some quotes from the people directly involved:
      More than 560 reached the UK over the weekend, including 336 in 19 boats on Friday, a record for a single day in 2021, surpassing the previous high of 209 on April 28.
      ‘She said so many had arrived at one point at the weekend that officers had to abandon the normal practice of Covid testing on arrival and instead take them to detention centres or other accommodation to avoid a potentially dangerous build-up of migrants.’
      ‘They are not exhausted, beaten down and glad to be here. They know they are going to be moved into accommodation. They want to be moved into accommodation. If that doesn’t happen promptly they get cross about it.’
      ‘They have to be clothed but we cannot provide hot food there. They might not have eaten anything. There is a mob mentality that takes over. The vast majority are young males. The families and children are moved clear very quickly.’
      ‘These are groups of people used to acting together to get what they need and frequently we cannot understand what they are saying to each other. The numbers arriving are phenomenal.’
      Can’t find anything like that on the BBC.
      Are you there maxicony ?. Perhaps you can lean over your desk and ask someone where they hid the link ?. Or if it’s not even there, ask them to justify why they have not reported it.
      Because the whole sorry affair is an absolute scandal – enabled by hypocrites such as yourself who will lie/cheat/mislead freely if it suits your personal agenda.

            I think we all know full well why these people are not just ‘returned to sender’. International law is that, if in our waters, they become our responsibility. If we then pick them up in UK government craft (the illegals having sabotaged their own craft, for instance, so that they become ‘endangered’, and under maritime law, must be rescued), or allow them to land on UK soil and then stuff them on board a UK craft, and sail them back to, say, France, then the government must work within international law and agreements with foreign governments. And basically, the French (for example) can quite legitimately say to us that they are not allowing us to land these illegal immigrants in their country – they want absolutely nothing at all to do with them.

            The only way we are going to solve this problem is to make it very clear that illegal immigrants will not be allowed to claim asylum unless they do so, through normal channels, from outside the UK. Illegal entry will be deemed a crime, and they will never, ever, be released into the UK. They will be offered a free return to their country of origin. What they will never, ever, get is the right to any benefits, nor cash payments or inducements of any form. They will be put into detention centres until such time as they can be moved back home. There will be no appeal allowed in this country if they have arrived here unlawfully.

            There’s no point in trying to offer them a return to France, for instance, so they can attempt entry again next week. In any case, France won’t take them.

            The big draw to this country is our benefits culture (housing, education, health services, cash in their hands, etc.) Whilst we were in the EU, as I understand it, we were bound by EU law, whereby immigrants were treated in exactly the same way as anyone entering adulthood as a British citizen. They are allowed to collect benefits immediately they reach a certain age – the same is not true in other Europen countries, where benefits to their own citizens entering adulthood are nothing like as generous as in the UK. EU law was written specifically that way, knowing that the UK was simply a bloody soft touch they could dump all their problem immigrants into if they wanted.

            Now that we are out of the EU, we can make our own laws about this situation, and it’s damned well time that we did – never mind the bluddy snowflakes in this country who have become almost as dependent on the tyaxpayer teat as these illegals.

            They simply don’t care. Their only first hand experience of migrants are the foreign nannies, gardeners and builders who work for them cheaply, allowing them to have domestic servants in the way their grandparents did before the war.

            They are not affected by housing problems. They live in nice houses in gated communities, paid for by a mixture of the public purse, inherited wealth and business directorships courtesy of the old school tie.

            They don’t have problems obtaining medical treatment. They have access to private health plans and the best hospitals and clinics.

            Their children are not being held back in overcrowded classes stuffed with children who cannot speak English, or terrorised in the playground by feral third worlders. Their children attend expensive, private schools.

            They don’t experience the problems of the motorist or commuter. They are chauffered around in limousines or helicopters, courtesy of the tax payer.

            So no, they don’t care. Their only worry is that one day the public might wake up, pick up their pitchforks and come looking for them.

    This morning it was the unfilled vacancies in the hospitality and leisure ‘industry’ sector.

    Nick Robinson, in the last half hour (when I started listening again) of the programme was back on the same trail – still in the Lakeland fells? sounded like he was in the studio – of subtly bashing Brexit.

    TOADY Watch #2 – how to spend money we haven’t got

    In the first 40 minutes of TOADY this morning, attention was focused on the extra £1.5bn (that is £1500,000,000 in real taxpayer money) being spent on education by the Government. They returned to the subject in the last half hour of TOADY because Labour wants to spend ten times that figure. Thanks to an appearance of Kate Green MP, Labour Shadow Education Secretary on TOADY we now know how Labour would be spending that £15 billion.

    Playing.

    Yes. Playing. Not on education. Not on teaching children to add 48 to 27 (or 27 to 48) but on playing. Oh, and cultural activities like music and dance. And sport but not on helping children catch up on the education they might have missed – learning to read and write and be numerate, the things that employers need and want in potential employees.

    Sucker Starmer has really been suckered into his job as Leader of the Labour Party. That man is surely doomed with talent like Kate Green in his Shadow Cabinet.

    I watched some of the film “Dunkirk” the other day. The 1958 version, not the inferior 2017 one. In 1958 they actually mentioned we were fighting the Germans.

    At the end, we saw one of the “little ships” making the crossing to Britain, with a platoon of soldiers aboard. And then I thought that this is still happening, every day, only the men are not British soldiers, they are bogus asylum seekers. In the film they were even picked up by a Royal Navy destroyer, just as nowadays they are picked up by the RNLI or Border Farce.

    One of the rescue ships was a steamer called the Sir John Hawkins. That would be cancelled now. It was only a fleeting appearance, so perhaps it will not go the way of Nigger the dog in Dambusters.

    At the end of the film it said we had become one nation. Well that certainly isn’t true any more. When I think of all we have lost, I cannot have any faith in the future of this poor old country, once so great, and now brought down so low.

      In frustration, the blond doc tried to force himself on the black one in the toilets – the black guy battered him into submission. This happened twice! (I remember thinking, aren’t there ‘specialist’ videos for people who like this kind of thing?)
      Also, the dishy blue-eyed doc (called Valentine!) brain-damaged from a bullet to the head, but with no visible injury?
      The violinist playing his instrument during brain surgery? (Actually, this might be one of the more credible things that happened).

    Today Virgin Media and O2 have merged together. The two firms which are actually owned by Liberty Global and Telefonica creating a £31 Bn group.

    This group will provide internet telephone, cable TV and mobile comms and will be a rival to Sky and BT.

    The groups mentioned are established and have good market share, and the longer BBC privatisation is put off the more difficult it is going to be to be able to make a subcription based alternative viable.

    For a privatised BBC to be a viable business it would need to compete with Sky BT and now Liberty / O2 offering internet, cable TV and mobile communications. A few years ago it would have been a plum time to have done this, but with Brexit and what is assumed to be a dodgy deal with Cameron to support remain.

    How could a newly privatised BBC survive in an established marketplace is difficult to see now, and I expect that would be the excuse the hapless Tories would use in order to force people to fund their far left propaganda machine by adding the bill to household rates making it a compulsory tax regardless of whether people even own a TV !

They were shown a map of the world with the borders in place, but no country names. Approximately 95% of these future world leaders could not find Iraq. Most worryingly, over 10% of them were unable to locate the United states of America. They would point to the former USSR (Which still existed then) and assume that it was the USA as it was the largest. Incredible but i’m sure I didn’t imagine it.

    This is more or less what Anne Marie Waters (For Britain) was saying here a week ago.

    My, how diligent the BBC were in revealing the name and photo of Daniel Boulton, the man suspected of murdering a mother and child.

    In some cases it takes them ages, if they get round to it at all.

    We’ve taken one for the team and sat through a wretched 25minutes of the BBC 1 6 pm news.

    And what trash it was. Just an unending list of grievance-hunting. Whether fair or not, the narrative and underlying agenda was clear.

    So get out the hankies, or alternatively razor blades, for these.

    1. UK farmers may miss out due to potential competition from …errr….Australian farmers (the inability to compete with products which have to be shipped 12,000 miles was not addressed)
    2. Older women have missed out on pensions (why was never spelt out)
    3. Native Alaskans might miss out if oil companies drill for oil in a few places out of 19 million square miles
    4. Parents (how were they chosen to speak? Local Labour or Union officials perhaps) straight off the mark complaining about insufficient education funding post covid. A report from Hartlepool (well, well)
    5. I missed the detail but even a report on the resumption of cricket at Lords involved the word ‘anti-discrimination’.

    In other words, business as usual at BBC news.

      “its a day of records, hottest day of the year so far”

      I’m sorry , but I am a bit more forceful when I hear this sort of ‘reporting’ – along the lines of….

      Well, why the hell wouldn’t it be, you divot ? Each day, as we move towards the Summer Solstice, the northern hemisphere (never mind just the UK) is seeing more and more sustained sunshine (i.e heat), so, in very broad terms, you would totally expect each day to be a possible, if not probable, ‘hottest day of the year so far’. Now, it would be headline news if a June day were the coldest day of the year so far – but let’s not dwell on statements of the blindingly obvious not being real headline news.

      Good grief, what are we teaching people, and especially these so-called ‘BBC meteorologists’, these days ? Statements of the obvious just have to be headline news just to justify your existence ? We could easily cull that bunch and save the licence-payer/taxpayer a bit of money. Mind you, there are a whole raft of BBC departments to which this could be applied – starting with the ‘comedy’ department.

    IMHO The Tory Government are complicit in bringing the invaders in . What secret deal has been signed ?
    Who will have ‘blood on their hands’ when just one of them turns out to be a Terrorist?

          They are more worried about their democratic right to be able to spread covid! The same sort of people who refused to take part in the blackout when the Luftwaffe were bombing.

          In the meantime Patel will continue to make statements and Boris will keep grinning and the invaders will keep arriving.

      Where is this going? In my view this will keep on keeping on until worldwide Marxist misery is achieved. The world desperately needs to hear the opinons of medical experts that, at the moment, are denied airtime in the mass media. There is more than one “expert” view regarding the pandemic but we are being directed down a one way street so we need to back up and find a through road.

    InFox news there are a few early interviews about the implication of this, it appears he knew right from the get go this was most likely produced in a Chinese lab and got loose, he chose not only to supress this but to say the opposite when Trump was talking about it.
