    First

    Just watching Michael Portillo on his trains. Didn’t think much of the lilac jacket with orange trousers. But did he have to spoil his trip with climate change?

    Look North featured a churchyard where the parish council have decided to leave a graveyard to return to nature. The hasn’t been a new grave there for over 100 years and I can understand wanting to leave it to nature and I can understand people wanting their ancestors graves tended.

    What I cannot understand is leaving it to help counter climate change. This small plot of land will make little difference to temperatures. Was this reason demanded by the BBC I wonder.

      For ‘this small plot of land’ read ‘the whole UK’. Even brilliant XR minds don’t seem capable of relating the area of the British Isles to the rest of the world.

      We could go 100% carbon neutral, stand proud in impoverished Greta-like glory and it wouldn’t make one methane reduced tinker’s farts worth of difference.

    Please please if there is nothing else you do this weekend watch this, it’s so important

    Andy Ngo is the journalist who was badly beaten by Antifa and early lost his life. He is a refugee or at least his parents were running from Communism, he knows what it is and what to fear.

    America is a lost country now, it’s just a matter of time, and unfortunately it’s likely to be us next. Make sure you can see the signs and prepare an escape route for you and your family.

      America is stuffed, especially with the current Idiot-In-Chief.

      We’re not far behind.

      Truly utterly shocking! A fascinating hour’s viewing which goes to confirm my belief that we are descending into a new Marxist/communist dark age which will be facilitated by the so called liberal and social democrat intelligentsia such as those in charge of our broadcast media, quangos, academia and museums and galleries. They are the people who are far more dangerous than the militant anarchists because they have the power and the apparent respectability to hoodwink the majority of ordinary people who can’t see what’s happening to western civilisation.

    Kent to turn away lone child migrants from Monday due to “extreme pressure”
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-57440907
    Our Home Secretary needs replacing . These kids are being sent alone over dangerous waters to get their parents in at a later date.
    The EU will continue to dump ALL their illegal migrants over here as there is no viable border control.
    Is it Boris’ plan to “Build Back Better”?

      Do you know that the ECHR, of which we still adhere to, defines a child migrant as anyone under the age of TWENTY FIVE. Why do we put up with agreeing to this madness. Other countries just ignore the rules.

        @harry142857 big claim there
        I’d like to see a ECHR page that has that definition

        When I checked the Kent case this week I found that
        the council has to care for unaccompanied minors under 18
        and if they are over 18 in education they are counted as care leavers , so the council still has to take care of them
        And that they can possibly still be if in education up to 25 years old.

      I wouldn’t trust this useless fat lump to tell me the time.

      And it’s rather worrying that he’s using the ominous phrase “Build back better.”

    Made the mistake of watching the half-time ‘analysis’ and what a repetitive, banal performance it was – I’ve heard Jay Blades sound more enthusiastic than Rio Ferdinand.

    To think that this is the summation of the world’s most popular ball sport, watching Turkey and Italy has to confirm its absurdity.

    Perhaps the ethnic make up of both teams deserved discussion, but no, no comment, no knees. Schtum. Nothing to see here.

      Beltane – thank you for summarising the summarisers – I was having a shower at halftime so think I did the right thing. At least Johnny Turk got a thrashing …

    Things are becoming more bizarre day by day.

    When it started, this pc/woke stuff, it was that comedians couldn’t tell mother in law jokes and from then on the left have been turning the screw tighter and tighter.

    It’s now reached the stage where every barmy thing that the left come out with is no longer considered unacceptable.
    Chucking statues into canals, removing pictures of the Queen, saying men are women and vice versa (or one of the almost 100 other genders) cancelling international sportsmen for historical schoolboy tweets yet being indifferent when hundreds of thousands of little girls are raped, tortured and gangbanged, going overboard when an ethnic is killed by a white (Floyd/Lawrence) yet ignoring a white tortured and burnt alive (Kriss Donald)……. I could fill the page.

    I vote ukip or whatever party is on the right (where the conservatives used to be) but we always end up with Labour or conservative.
    Adam Boulton said today that we have two Democratic (as in American left wing) parties here and that’s why we get on with America when they elect a democrat president.

    We vote to keep a party out and not because we agree with the other party. The lesser of two evils.

    How can the minority have complete control over us.
    They can’t believe their luck that every ridiculous thing they come out with is tut tutted and then accepted (or tolerated) leaving them with their victory and then to try something even more daft.

    How can the gays and lesbians support the muzzies who would throw them off a block of flats as soon as look at them and how can women support muzzies when they are seen as lesser human beings by them.
    How can the powers that be not see that the indigenous Brits are being taken over.
    We’ve lost London already and many other towns and cities ore going the same way.

    Crime is out of control.
    Of course we had murders back in the 60’s and those times but now we have gang fights in parks with machetes, guns and knives in broad daylight almost every week and it’s more or less normal.

    This diversity is a huge failure.
    It has never worked anywhere in the world at any time, ever.

    Like others on here, I don’t expect to be around when it becomes too bad (about 2050 is my guess when we lose) but we are letting the children down badly. They don’t understand what they are heading towards, they’ve been brainwashed.

    When I was a teenager it was a time for rebellion and going against the current status quo but nowadays they all need to be liked so much they are just a bunch of soft airheaded virtue signallers.

    I remember when Britain really was great but I’m so saddened by what’s happening to it now.

    Foscari – interesting assessment . I hope they are out as quickly as possible so that more petrol can be poured on the fire to burn back ‘woke ‘.

    John humphreys write in the Mail today about various versions of woke . But in the weekend where GB News starts up he doesn’t mention anything about it at all . Maybe his agent didn’t get the phone call ….
    I notice that the ‘old sweats’ on GBNews tend to be ex sky types rather than from the BBC Borg ….

      Fedup- Some may be asking “interesting assessment” ?
      Even “fearless” me have second thoughts about my comments.
      Just lets say that Gareth Southgate may pick a team that
      encompasses his woke mentality . And not on footballing
      ability. A nifty left knee bend, being more important than a deadly
      right foot.

    The trouble with the footie is that before the games start I’m seized with a manic desire to strike up with ‘knees up mother brown’, particularly the ‘if I catch you bending, I’ll saw your legs right off’ bit. Now, where did I put those pills……?

      In case no one noticed, none of these hypocrits are wearing masks, none of them are socially distancing and yet we are being threatened with an extension to lockdown rules of a further 12 months because the vaccine clearly isn’t working as promised.
