      Only last week a story surfaced about a US activist employed by RCN to push a marxist agenda in the organisation.

      RCN is a left-wing saturated political organisation and has very little to do with health care. It needs to be investigated and dismantled. The public have a right for totally unbiased health-centred care that we all pay for by force.

    TOADY Watch #1 – ‘Part-time’ turns up for work at the BBC!

    A big headline moment, especially after my post yesterday. I guess she doesn’t want Nick Robinson stealing the limelight at the G7. Mind you, ‘Part-time’ is eclipsed by the BBC’s Economics Editor, Faisal Islam, who makes you wonder whether he actually does any work at the BBC at all. Whatsoever.

    Now that I have typed that he will probably turn up later today or tomorrow on the Cornwall jolly with Nick and and ‘Part-time’.

    PS: ‘Part-time’ didn’t add anything much to our knowledge of the G7 event for the air time consumed. The BBC could be a much more efficient operation if it slimmed down a lot.

    I was a bit groggy until i heard robinson asking vacinees the question

    “You do want to save billions of lives around the world by giving away vaccines dont you ?”

    To which the reply was “ no – there are too many people in the world and a lot need to die – vote green”

    BBC policy is to stop all UK vaccinations – let the unvaccinated get covid – maybe die
    – but feel good about vaccinating bongo bongo land

    Back to call comrade robinson – then he nailed a shady government minister to a cross over the traitor England Team . What a c word ( character ) that person is .

        Listening to Robinson – I wonder if he is a fascist – I’m not too sure of the definition – but his absolute certainty that his belief is the only way – the complete denial of an alternative view or values – does that fit ?

        Even worse are red Tory ministers who submit to him – as the pompous half wit CCHQ put up this morning . Does any politician of the red centre ever take them on ?

          I only listened to Today whilst I took a short car journey and heard the end of the Robinson interview the Minister – it was obviously a ‘when did you stop beating your wife’ moment. The minister was damned whatever he said. But Robinson finishing off with ‘well shall we go now and ask the Prime Minister what he things about kneeling’ was behaving like a spoilt child. It was hardly a Humphries interview.

    A 14 year coloured kid got pushed into a river and drowned – the perp was 14 – known to the dead kid ( school friends ) but can you guess the rest ?

    No evidence of crime – but the perp was white .

    TOADY Watch #2 – Gordon’s Grandstanding again – vaccinate the world, whether it needs it or not.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-51235105 If you scroll down the statistics collected by Johns Hopkins University you will find 13 of the ‘poorest’ countries in the world where they have had no deaths – zero deaths – from Covid and the highest level of infections is 200. Further up the list is evidence that even in Africa – take Central African Republic as an example, there may be no need for mass vaccination. Bear in mind most African countries have porous borders, CAR being no exception to that.

    Most of those 13 nations, Vatican City excepted, are in warm or hot parts of the world. Vaccines require refrigeration. The PfizerBionTech vaccine requires more than that; it needs freezing and a carefully staged thawing process if it is to be effective. Gordon Brown and others have not thought about transporting vaccines to ‘the world’ and keeping the vaccines fit for purpose. A country in southern Africa, Malawi if I recall correctly, recently had to destroy a number of Covid vaccines recently because they were beyond their ‘use by’ dates. I guess this was because of transport delays to their destination.

    If you want to save the world all over again, Gordon Brown, I suggest you map out a necessity grid, recruit an inoculation workforce and transportation plan, first.

    And so the BBC reports this morning 11th June that an ex Prime Minister a Mr Gordon Brown has written to the present Prime Minister encouraging him to embrace the term ‘taking the knee’ for the sake of better race relations- can you believe it? To me as I am sure it is to most, that such action is only undertaken when being Knighted by Her Majesty the Queen. Otherwise in my opinion such an action is despicable indeed contemptuous against Britain a nation that has always fought for the freedoms of the enslaved.

    A truly shocking statistic for you- the population of Ethiopia has increased from 39 million in 1984, Band Aid and all that, to a scarcely credible 120 million today. Therein lies a large part of the problem. And Nigeria’s population is in course to reach it’s first billion.

      markh – I said this almost from the day that Geldof and his cronies were screeching expletives at anyone who hadn’t ‘taken the knee’ in the face of his demands, the virtue-signalling murderer.

      Anybody with any sense could see that stuffing aid into Ethiopia would certainly relieve the possibility of immediate life loss due to the famine hitting that area of Africa. But, no-one with any power to stop the consequent madness did any critical thinking or planning for the inevitable outcome of these actions. Within a couple of years of Band-Aid, aid money was having to be poured into Ethiopia at a tremendous rate, fundamentally because the behaviour of the indigenous population had not changed, and they continued to have children at an astonishing rate.

      This was culturally normal in that part of the world because of the naturally high infant mortality rate, and, without mincing words, the natural culls by famine of that part of the world occured because the countries of that region did not store food away in the good harvest years (or failed to recognise that the best harvest years were just barely enough to feed the population, and no storage was made). Consequently, when the famine of that era was averted, the population had already started growing at an absolutely unsusdtainable rate for the country’s capabilities.

      Since Band-Aid, Ethiopia has never again produced enough to sustain its ever-bulging population growth, which then had to be sustained by ever-more-increasing foreign aid – to the point now that the country can never ever be self-sustaining again.

      Even with the apparently best of intentions in the world, the country is never more than a few days away from immense famine casualties, far worse than the Band-Aid fiasco was meant to prevent, and will always have to depend on foreign food aid, in ever-increasing quantities – and there is just no sane way now to stop this, nor to stop it from spreading to other nearby countries.

      Well done Geldof, and all those other self-congratualting, virtue-signalling, cowardly politicians from all over the world who simply let this whole situation slide – knowing they would not personally be around in the future to pick up the incredible mess Ethiopa would run into… and never admitted that they had clearly contributed to a self-sustaining disaster of ever-bigger proportions, in order to look and feel good at the time.

    Last month Ofcom released its new improvements to home WiFi on the 5 & 6 GHz bands with a 10 times power increase from a measly 25mW to 250mW.

    Click to access 6ghz-statement.pdf

    The comments on Ofcoms performance on this sector of their purview appears to mirror the organisation as a whole. That they basically cannot understand nor explain their own rules and parameters. Cannot explain how a domestic WiFi system works and how it fits within a framework they themselves have legislated.

    It might well be the case that these standards were set for them by others in the EU, and being lazy and incompetent well paid but ill qualified people they failed to understand what they were being asked to do.

    Even now when they are asked reports are that they cannot properly understand the implications of their own proposals and are effectively leaving it to manufacturers to do it all for them.

      Given that many of the devices used in the home and industry require a mains electricity suppy and are therefore wired devices wouldn’t it make sense to co-locate a wired data service with the power distribution system?

      I don’t mean trying to carry data over the ‘twin and earth’, rather having power sockets incorporating something like an ethernet socket as well. New buildings should come with a data ‘ring’ or ‘radials’, especially to service devices like ‘smart tv’ and GCHQ Amazon’s snooping devices that are (nearly) always on and using lots of bandwidth.

    #1 Virginia school teacher was suspended for giving opinion at planning meeting
    “He said hypothetically if the school required him to use trans pronouns to kids he would refuse on religious grounds”
    But now a judge has ruled in his favour ..citing free speech First Amendment … court cases continue
    https://youtu.be/u4JvkZy1lUY

    #2 Big overturning of California gun control laws
    The judge argued first there was some PR trickery
    That the term Assault Rifle had been invented to demonise guns
    In fact AR as in AR-15 means ArmaLite Rifle.
    The judge said ‘AR-15s are like a Swiss army knife.’
    And by banning such weapons Californians are being deprived of weapons that are quick and accurate and therefore good DEFENSIVE weapons
    Furthermore the original law used trickery in that it forbid people from challenging the law
    The judge ruled that that is unconstitutional as it goes against the second amendment.
    .. https://youtu.be/8KMa-E-KupM
    ..court cases continue

    ===========================

    Then there are a couple stemming from Fauci
    #1 It’s now revealed that Mark Zuckerberg kept calling Fauci with ideas, and requested private calls
    (code word for let’s have off-the-reord conversations)
    Why’s that important ?
    Cos up to now Facebook has said we are just a private company, so we can ban who we like
    but by working in tandem with Fauci they were acting together with US government agency
    So first amendment free speech law should apply, they are not allowed to ban certain speakers.
    Furthermore by suppressing talk of a lab created Covid they hurt Trump and framed his talk as racist.

    #2 Viva Frei’s original discussion about
    Fauci emails : https://youtu.be/CZbUvGTDAwE
    Judicial Watch was about to get a release order against Fauci’s emails
    So the lefties made an attempt to control the narrative by releasing the emails to Buzzfeed, but they didn’t succeed in keeping the story low profile.

    He’d worked with at least one Muslim for years and shown no animosity.

    But this politician decided she need to distance herself from any past policies in her party that stoked anti-Muslim sentiment
    First saying
    “. . . one of my biggest regrets in my public service was being silent during the 2015 general election campaign
    on the wrongness of the barbaric cultural practices tip line,
    and the proposed niqab ban.
    Those policies were wrong . .”

    I am “cis” (not a trans woman), and straight
    but I’m a victim too of white male system cos I’m a woman’

      It’s probably worth mentioning the Polish level of national pride too, they are a fine people. I worked with a Polish guy a couple of years ago and I was concerned that he would be arrogant and condescending, this being the reputation they had among my colleagues who had worked with them. In fact he was a great guy, with a ready wit and eagerness to be part of the gang and I even tried to learn a few Polish phrases along the way. I asked him why he thought his countrymen had this reputed contempt for the Brits. He replied that all through his early years he was taught that the British were as great a nation as had ever been. Then he landed in the UK, walked through the first town centre he came to and thought “How on earth did you let this happen?”

    In twatterati environment he goes on to say…

    “I’m fed up of seeing Muslim characters on screen either negative or non existent.”

    Wow, that’s bluddy clever….. he’s fed up of seeing Muslim characters on screen being …. non-existant ????

    He further goes on to say …

    “The industry must change. Our new study proves what many of us always felt about #MuslimsInFilm. The cost is measured in hate & lost lives.”, without, of course providing any proof of that statement.

    Then, a couple of tweets below, we find the reason for the outburst – he wants Muslim productions to be funded by grants, because, he claims, 24% of the world’s population is Muslim – most of whom, of course, probably don’t watch popular films.

    Can’t be bad, though – yell ‘racist’ and extort money from the people you are accusing of this ‘crime’…. and some ‘woke w*****s’ will probably jump on your putative bandwagon.

    Tthe response should be ‘tough twatty, mate’…. you want the moolah, go and demand it from your muslim mates, and see how far you get !

    Indian film-makers manage to fund and successfully sell films to their selected audience without any significant problems – get off your ‘arris’, you lazy twat, and go find out how they do it, and then become self-sufficient.

      Could be a problem:

      The Prophet said, “Angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or there are pictures.”

      “I heard ‘Abdullah saying that he heard the Prophet saying, “The people who will receive the severest punishment from Allah will be the picture makers.'”

      Allah’s Apostle said, “Those who make these pictures will be punished on the Day of Resurrection, and it will be said to them. ‘Make alive what you have created.'”

      When Allah’s Apostle saw it, he tore it and said, “The people who will receive the severest punishment on the Day of Resurrection will be those who try to make the like of Allah’s creations.”

      So half the muslims won’t watch the films and the other half will probably be burning the cinemas down.

        Oh crap, I should have written *SPOILERS* shouldn’t I?
        Rushdie himself interceded in the name of free speech when the BBFC refused it a certificate.

      To be fair, he was manifestly running out on his list of things to say at that moment and came up with the first thing in his head.
      He should learn to shut up sometimes and keep to a small list of strongest points.
      An elementary yet worrying mistake for a leader.

    I know the leaders and entourage are staying in a castle in Cornwall, but I had no idea that there were that many proper luxury hotels there either, to accommodate all the worlds news peoples and hangers on like Beff, Kay and Boulton – sorry haven’t watched the Beeb but I suppose that lot have all descended to the South West en-masse. Cant see Laura staying in a B & B.

    ITV local news : “the problem of BAME not having vaccinations
    ..here we are at black church in Sheffield which has opened as a vaccination centre”
    Nurse “we are using a translation app to speak to the people”

    I thought the reason refugees came here was cos they already speak English.

    BBC ‘news’ at 6 pm.

    And they’ve gone gaga. Undistinguishable from leftmob student activists.

    Apparently the evil Uk government has had the temerity to vaccinate its own people first rather than send them all to Africa.

    Africa has hardly any vaccines.
    Not asked. Can they distribute them?
    Will doses get in to people’s arms before the sell-by dates?
    What are the governments and leaders of all the tinpot dictatorships that pass for countries doing about it? Apart from diverting scare resources into their Swiss bank accounts?

    Yes, we’ve invented one of the vaccines, sold it at cost, done huge amounts of genome sequencing, promised 100 million doses for overseas, contributed hugely to Covax. All on top of 0.5% of GDP in overseas aid.

    But for Laura ‘stung by wasp’ Kuennsberg, sneering away down her nose as usual, it’s not enough.

    Totally pathetic.

    Radio Humberside news “10 yo Sophie and Brother Ian have written to Graham Stuart MP about Climate Change driving puffins to extinction see our webpage”
    actually the item is not yet there

    Where would kids get such wacky ideas ?
    Ah website Global Citizen (a Soros PR front ?)
    quotes WWF

    (Puffins won’t go extinct, rather numbers very from year to year, cos they vary where they migrate to)

    I read in one of the dailies, that foreign workers coming for harvesting had fallen by 91% due to brexit. Why doesn’t Priti Pathetic shift all these illegal immigrants to the farms where they are needed? Win win, the farmers provide the accommodation, pay the wages, stop the accommodation charges from the wages. The farmers will then stop moaning about lack of workers. Maybe by putting in 8 hours graft tatey picking these illegals will stop travelling to the UK.

    What is the betting that we stay lockdown until next year.
    ‘Drakeford the Dalek’ has already made noises in taffland that he would like that to happen.
    Its all part of Boris’ “Build Back Better”.
    PS how long has he got to go before he gets replaced . Even Mrs May has criticised the PM now.
