      YOUR COMPLAINT:

      President Trump’s 100 Days President Biden’s 0 Day 

      Dear Winston Smith in the Records Department of the Ministry of Truth,

      You covered President Trump’s 100 Days and then produced a Beyond 100 Days to hold power to account.

      Why have you not done the same for President Biden to hold power to account?

      ‘Omission is the greatest form of lie.’

    I don’t expect the BBC will take any notice, as UN Climate Change policies has nothing to do with the weather other than a prediction based on an incorrect statement that ‘97% of Scientists agree’

    – which is the first clue that its ‘contrived’ to make it look that way for a – specific purpose. Political convenience of the left to blame everybody else..
    And its worked so far.

    Leading to Scientists being shadow ‘banned’, for stating the obvious when the facts don’t add up.

    That is become a doctrine of the left to damage everything and exploit everything for political advantage. They are at media war with us 7 days a week. Often sponsored by our own governments as an ’emergency’ situation.

    The BBC cannot see morals. Pointing out inaccuracy at the BBC is rarely admitted even when its debated in parliament and even the Courts have fined them and found them and found guilty (again). They just carry on as before, paying fine or two as they go.

    But what if, suddenly, 97% of Scientists suddenly agreed that global warming was not man made but because of the role of the sun itself?

    Would that change things for the left?
    I don’t think so, (you see it just gets ignored. After all they control most of the media, have infiltrated governments, education and wealth locked up with the projection of ‘doom’ and a global pandemic that may be with us for the remains of the next century (or more) depending if the BBC still exists.

    But not all Scientist agree (nor ever will). But they rank higher than political agitators hiding as environmentalists. Globalist corporations are keen for you to believe the end of the world scenario. They are just the profit seekers.

    But: If you believe in the Science, don’t believe anything when your in lock down. Taking drugs (because if you don’t..), get you kids neutered, take an early Euthanasia pill, abort a perfectly healthy child early, close down all industry, ban cars, ban cows, ban fishing, ban money… something may happen- to the planet that is really, really scary. When governments telling you what to eat, read, abort, and father (or mother) and create a state of fear.

    Except its not. Not CO2.

    Study Finds Sun—Not CO2—May Be Behind Global Warming

    A new scientific review article has just been published on the role of the Sun in climate change over the last 150 years. It finds that the United Nations ’Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) may have been premature in their conclusion that recent climate change is mostly caused by human greenhouse gas emissions.

    http://www.raa-journal.org/raa/index.php/raa/article/view/4920/6080

    So that torpedoes the entire CO2 emission argument of the left.

    And the BBC would say its just one ‘light weight’ report. (they will ignore it), but they could respond. In which case they could also ignore another report here. It won’t be the last, as not all Scientist agree to work at the BBC.

    500 Scientist also state there is no climate change.
    https://www.aei.org/carpe-diem/there-is-no-climate-emergency-say-500-experts-in-letter-to-the-united-nations/

    https://needtoknow.news/2019/07/bombshell-scientists-find-man-made-climate-change-doesnt-exist/

    If anything its cooler this year, than 2019.
    Whilst I heard on the BBC that it’s the hottest on record!
    And as usual the ice caps and polar bears ’emergency’ etc.

    If we all died tomorrow. CO2 would not change. The planet would still be heated by the sun. Its in balance beyond the tweaks of Bill Gates and his team of global warriors of the left.

    I see the BBC are still portraying the fighters in the Panjshir Valley as heros standing up against Taliban oppression. Just as they have for decades.

    Which is ironic because the BBC are in part directly responsible for the fact that they are going to be completely wiped out.

    What a shame we can’t take these Lefties over there and make them watch the consequences of their actions and see what distorting truth in the name of ideology leads to. All because of their hatred of Trump.

    Ivermectin: Oklahoma doctor warns against using drug for Covid treatment
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-58449876
    Never heard of that one BBC : thanks for the suggestion, I’ll go see if I can get some.
    Just as I never considered what Trump said to mean ‘I should inject disinfectant’ until you twisted it that way. Because he never said it.
    The elephant in this article about Oklahoma – where Wikipedia tells me is only 55% are ‘non-Hispanic’ white – is:
    “The [emergency rooms] are so backed up that gunshot victims were having hard times getting to facilities where they can get definitive care and be treated,”
    As if gunshot injuries are like catching a cold.
    What occurred to me while I was researching this is how nobody on the Left has accused BLM of racism for not including Hispanics or anyone else.
    Even more reason ‘taking the knee’ should be banned as the racist symbol it is.

      John,
      The lying, deceitful BBC also say, “Ivermectin, mainly a veterinary deworming agent, can be used in small doses to treat some human conditions.” I love, “mainly”.

      Read that and all became clear: the position of the WHO, FDA, NHS, NICE et al. no doubt all receiving backhanders from big Pharma to follow that line. That’s what you are instructed to advise if you are over on the (far) left-hand-side of the fence.

    A grim day indeed when the future King of Great Britain has been caught taking bribes from wealthy Saudi businessmen in exchange for face to face meetings, a reccomendation for citizenship, and a knighthood !

    Again the fact these issues come to light add further creedence to the reality poverty pay for senior politicians is leading to them open to offers of money from foreign powers to follow their agenda, and not what is in the interest of this one.

        So far as I’m aware Charles isn’t giving the pair any money, and is so cautious of them that he and William won’t even have a private meeting with Harry in case he lies about what was said and it is used against them.

        The point is a wider one, that if the future king is accepting bribes it’s almost inconceivable politicians are not also doing so, and what is being offered in return for those bribes.

      Once a year a certain government department would re-issue a standing instruction on the subject of fraud.

      It included a question: “What is the lower limit for fraud?”.

      The answer was that there was no lower limit. Any fraud was seen as breaking the bond of trust with the department and the inevitable consequence would be instant dismissal – so think more than twice for claiming £1.50 for the bus ticket that wasn’t bought.

      You seem to be advocating the inverse strategy – “How much do we have to pay our leaders before they will stop fraudulently taking bribes?”

      Wrong strategy, wrong leaders.

    Kid’s games

    …no economic policies, no aid, no one to run their airports and no money to pay wages…‘ – no, not Boris Johnson’s Tories, this was Christina Lamb in the Sunday Times wailing about the Taliban being taken by surprise by the sudden event of their being handed power in Kabul. Who really cares? Who would be surprised that this tribal backwater reverts to chaos, medievalism and infighting?

    As for the suddeness of the takeover, one might envisage President Joe Biden as the grumpy old grandad, who didn’t really understand the tactics of the kid’s game Kerplunk – he thought if you pull all the sticks out at once and all the marbles come crashing down, then somehow you win the game.

    But let’s look more closely at our Christina’s rough checklist for competancy in running a country. In a rather procolonialist sense she laments the Taliban’s unsuitability for the job. A concerned mother frustrated the kids are back in charge: ‘An urgent financial crisis awaited them‘ quoting a local former finance official: “They don’t understand the magnitude of the economic threat

    Closer to home: BBC: ‘More than 8,700 chain stores closed in British High Streets, shopping centres and retail parks in the first six months of this year, research suggests. That is an average of nearly 50 outlets a day as the impact of the pandemic and changing shopping habits continue to hit many towns and city centres

    Ahem, the impact of… lockdown policy.

    UK unemployment: BBC: ‘The Resolution Foundation said it was possible that unemployment would rise from its current level of 4.4% to about 4.9% in the autumn, with another 150,000 workers unemployed

    Further criticism of the Taliban seems to centre around their disorganistion: “They hadn’t had the internal discussion about who would do what or how

    Meanwhile: ‘Tories at war over “idiotic” tax increase‘ (Sunday Telegraph)

    Red Wall could crumble over tax and pension plan “madness”‘ (Sunday Express)

    Red wall crumble? – must be some northern delicacy, like Eccles Cake. I can remember back when the Liberals couldn’t have jelly for tea – they thought they broke the political mould.

    As for running the airports: BBC: ‘Heathrow criticises Border Force for “unacceptable” queues

    I’m guessing security at Kabul airport now stop and question you only if you’re not on the terror watch list.

    Anything to declare, other than five suitcases full of opium poppy seeds?

    We may have to confiscate this CD of Cliff Richard’s We’re All Going On A Summer Holiday. Cat Stephens is cool but we need to check if Sir Cliff complies with strict islamic law

    One would like to find some light relief in the news but I’m afraid much of our tabloid press have gone covid crazy again.

    Long covid hell for 2000 kids per day. Experts warn 1 in 7 could suffer. Whitty to rule on jabs in days‘ (Sunday People)

    Covid chaos for under 18s. Teens face five-hour trip for jab’ (Sunday Mirror)

    Just a reminder of these paper’s respective taglines: ‘Proud to be independent‘ and ‘We are with you

    As the People turn up child project fear to the max: ‘As many as 2000 British kids a day may be going down with agonising cases of long Covid. One in seven may still have symptoms after 15 weeks says a report

    Someone has been running computer models again, methinks.

    We attempt to persuade kids to spend less time in front of their computer screens. About time our supposed expert modellers tried turning it off for a moment?

      • Ian Rushlow says:

        There is no established medical evidence of anything called ‘Long Covid’. There are recognised conditions such as Post-Viral Fatigue (PVF), Post-Viral Syndrome (PVS) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). This is where a person continues to have symptoms following recovery from a viral infection (e.g. ‘flu or common cold), typically continuing to feel ‘under the weather’ or constantly tired. The term ‘syndrome’ is used as there are no objective tests for these things, and the treatment can involve exercise or Cognitive Behavourial Therapy (CBT) rather than anything medicinal, although painkillers and tranquilisers can be prescribed. These are the ‘official’ views; there is also a significant body of opinion that believes such things, along with ME and ADHD, are an attempt to medicalise certain behavours that aren’t in themselves necessarily (or always) medical in nature.

      Just on the equal pay in football thing. Why should anyone given the honour of representing their country need paid?

      International footballers are in the main all professionals and are well paid by their clubs, all will be properly insured by their respective governing bodies, will be given comfortable accommodation, will be suited and booted in all the latest kit, will be fed and watered with all their dietary needs met by chefs and dieticians, and will have all their first class travel expenses paid to them. If they’re not professional they still get everything gratis, it still costs them nothing.

      Why should any footballer, male or female, expect to be paid an appearance fee to play for their country a few times a year?

      I stereotype of course because as we know Black people were core to every scientific, intellectual, political and cultural progression in Britain…if not because of their innate genius then because of the financial windfall from slavery that underpins the fabric of our nation and which we have to acknowledge and atone for.

      Here’s a classic BBC hero-worship ‘coz they’re black’….why is skin colour so important here when in any other case the BBC says we must not mention it…isn’t this just racism?

      Really? Do we need to know them..because they are black? Is that their main achievement? It seems like the BBC is hectoring and lecturing us from the pulpit….whites need to know blacks are intelligent too, whilst Blacks need to have inspirational role models…very patronising from people who think their BBC status gives them some holier than thou right to preach to us immoral and ignorant bigots as well as to poor, helpless, stupid blacks who just can’t get on in life without a hand up from their white saviours.

      Interesting to note that the first hero is actually mixed race and looks more white than black…but is claimed for the ‘Black’ race….Alan Powell Goffe….somehow managed to be really sucessful, and an army officer, ‘despite’ being black and ‘discriminated against’…

      ‘ Alan Goffe’s loss would have also been felt, in some strange way, by black people eager to prove that it was possible to succeed despite discrimination.

      Indeed, he refuted by his achievements, the view that people of African descent were intellectually inferior to whites.’

    Today programme venting about the Texas abortion laws….apparently we ‘must of course acknowledge many people are against abortion’.

    That indicates where the BBC starts from…abortion is good and those who oppose it are bad….this has always been the BBC position…just another reason to hate Trump, and the DUP (whom Mishal Husain dismissed as backward and unpleasant Christians because of their views on abortion and gay marriage…hmmm…a Muslim lecturing Christians on such subjects? LOL) of course.

    The pro-abortion speaker was given a very friendly platform with no challenges to her position…it was just accepted that she was in the right and didn’t have to defend her argument, statement, at all.

    I have little time for Royalty – honours are now largely dishonoured – as this case seems to highlight .

    But then i thought of The Queen . What an awful year she is having. I cannot see anyone deserving what she is going through .

    Once again the less well off are being hit by the green revolution being thrust upon them as the new E10 fuel comes into use…it won’t work on older cars but the owners of which can use fuel that is 12p a litre dearer…so that’s OK.

    Similarly when the new green vehicle taxes were introduced those who were well-off and could afford a top end vehicle with very efficient engines could end up paying little to no tax whilst people who couldn’t afford a new car were thumped with even heavier vehicle taxes.

    And so on it will be with enforced boiler replacement and house insulation and whatever other green measures the government decides we must have…along with forcing us to be vegetarian and, of course jobless, as they shut down capitalism…so no more NHS and welfare, no free schools and no defences….we’ll all be speaking Chinese soon as they roll straight over us.

    BBC naturally doesn’t see any of the problems, or rather doesn’t want you to see them nor be goven the chance to object…in fact the BBC is fully on-board the green bandwagon and some might say, is in the driving seat as Roger Harrabin, one of the most corrupt and dishonest ‘journalists’ out there, distorts and hijacks BBC programming to peddle his green messaging and gives unquestioning support [other than to call for more] to government green extremism.

    Always interesting how the BBC manages a story…especially one they ‘have an interest in’…such as anything they can relate to Brexit however tenuous the link.

    HGV driver shortages….due to Brexit right? At first the BBC did at least make the effort to suggest that maybe, just maybe, there were several factors in the HGV driver shortage such as covid or employment terms and conditions…not forgetting Brexit of course. As time went on Brexit became the first and main reason…the rest an afterthought…and then almost forgotten entirely….Brexit is now de facto the reason….never mind that even if Brexit played a part over 80% of the driver shortage on their own figures were the result of other causes….so how is Brexit the main culprit?

    Consider over 5 million EU citizens signed up to British citizenship…how is it that up to 20,000 drivers didn’t? Is it because of Brexit or some other reason? Why could 5 million stay but they just had to go home? It couldn’t have been immigration rules as they just needed to have been living here before the cut-off date to qualify.

    The real reason was covid…and the fact that pay and conditions were better in the improving economies of Eastern Europe as well as new factories being set up there offering better pay and a home life…nothing to do with Brexit…more an ‘Exit’ as they take back control of their own lives and sovereignty.

    Take blood test tubes shortage…you will hear the BBC bundle this into the same narrative…due to driver shortage caused by Brexit.

    Just not true….the shortage is global and is due to one American company having its own problems as covid 19 means a massive rise in demand…as well as a shortage of shipping [again something global but the BBC likes to suggest caused by Brexit]…

    ‘There is currently a global shortage of blood test tubes for the next few months.’

    From the BMJ…

    ‘Becton Dickinson (BD), which manufactures most of the blood tubes used by the NHS, has alerted NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE/I) to a global shortage of some of its products. This includes two types of blood tubes: those with a yellow or purple top.
    What caused the shortage?

    BD says that the covid-19 pandemic created the most unpredictable demand it has seen in the past 70 years. The company says that it has also been difficult for customers to predict the types and quantities of blood tubes they will be using from month to month, which affects manufacturers’ abilities to meet demand. “Adding to the issue are global transportation delays that have resulted in more products being tied up in transportation than is normal, creating additional delays in deliveries,” BD said in a statement. “Raw material suppliers are also challenged to keep up with demand for materials and components.”’

    The BBC just can’t help itself as it spins against Brexit at every chance it gets.

    Time to shut it down as unreliable, corrupt and a spreader of disinformation and dangerous propaganda for various extremist groups on an industrial scale.

      Truck driver shortage ‘is about as bad as I’ve ever seen’: US Xpress CEO
      Brian Cheung August 10, 2021

      The need for workers is weighing on the trucking industry, where freight operators are struggling to raise wages fast enough to find drivers.

      Eric Fuller, the CEO of U.S. Xpress (USX), said that his company has doled out 30% to 35% in total pay increases over the last 12 months — but suggested more may be needed.

      “The driver situation is about as bad as I’ve ever seen in my career,” Fuller told Yahoo Finance on Monday.

      Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that in the depths of the COVID-19 pandemic, the truck transportation industry lost 6% of its pre-pandemic labor force of 1.52 million workers. As of July, the industry had recovered about 63,000 of those lost jobs but still remains about 33,000 jobs short of employment levels in February 2020.

      No wonder Obama was against Brexit – see what it has done to the US trucking business!

    Interesting watch…[hat tip Is the BBC biased?]
    https://isthebbcbiased.blogspot.com/2021/09/dont-be-beastly-to-pakistanis.html

    Long been known that Pakistan sponsors the Taliban…to control Afghanistan and Pushtun indepence and Indian influence in Afghanistan…the Taliban is Pakistan’s proxy army like Hezbollah is Iran’s.

    The BBC knows this and admitted it way back in 2012…so why does an ill-informed BBC presenter panic and deny such truths?

    ‘Pakistan helping Afghan Taliban – Nato’
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-16821218

    ‘”Senior Taliban representatives, such as Nasiruddin Haqqani, maintain residences in the immediate vicinity of ISI headquarters in Islamabad,” it said.

    It quotes a senior al-Qaeda detainee as saying: “Pakistan knows everything. They control everything. I can’t [expletive] on a tree in Kunar without them watching.”

    “The Taliban are not Islam. The Taliban are Islamabad.”‘

    Of note is a realisation that the Taliban are not going away and are inccreasingly popular…not least amongst Afghan police and security forces…

    ‘In a damning conclusion, the document says that in the last year there has been unprecedented interest, even from members of the Afghan government, in joining the Taliban cause.

    It adds: “Afghan civilians frequently prefer Taliban governance over the Afghan government, usually as a result of government corruption.”

    The report has evidence that the Taliban are purposely hastening Nato’s withdrawal by deliberately reducing their attacks in some areas and then initiating a comprehensive hearts-and-minds campaign.

    It says that in areas where Isaf has withdrawn, Taliban influence has increased, often with little or no resistance from government security forces. And in many cases, with the active help of the Afghan police and army.’

    So why any surprise about recent events…..all this was true long before 2012….every trooper knew it was all a waste of time, money and lives.

    Maybe Biden should have read this from 2002…yeah…way, way back then…..don’t leave a vacuum….

    https://www.washingtoninstitute.org/policy-analysis/who-responsible-taliban

    ‘Many Afghan specialists criticized the United States for merely walking away from Afghanistan after the fall of the Soviet Union. Ed Girardet, a journalist and Afghanistan expert, observed, “The United States really blew it. They dropped Afghanistan like a hot potato.” Indeed, Washington’s lack of engagement created a policy void in which radical elements in the ISI eagerly filled.’

    The article from the Washington Institute gives the lie to many myths…such as when the Islamisation began [long before the Soviets and American support for the Mujahadeen] and the creation of the ‘Afghan Arabs'[again not a US creation]….and it sets out the role Pakistan played over decades in Afghanistan and later the creation of the Taliban…..nothing new….the BBC should not in anyway be surprised or offended by the truth…this is exactly what the woman was saying in the interview…how did the BBC not recognise that?….

    ‘Pakistan viewed Daoud’s Pushtunistan rhetoric (and his simultaneous support for Baluchi separatists), as well as his generally pro-India foreign policy, as a serious threat to Pakistani security.

    Pakistani Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto responded by supporting an Islamist movement in Afghanistan, a strategy that Islamabad would replicate two decades later with the Taliban.

    The Taliban became the latest incarnation of Pakistan’s desire to support Islamist rather than nationalist rule in neighboring Afghanistan. The Taliban arose in madaris on Pakistani territory. Upon the capture of Spin Baldak, mujahidin commanders in Kandahar immediately accused Pakistan of supporting the new group. In late October 1994, the local mujahidin warlords intercepted a convoy containing arms, senior ISI commanders, and Taliban.(52) The men and material in this transport proved crucial in the seizure of Kandahar.’

      She said BBC culture “was deeply deferential” and staff were reluctant to speak to managers about complaints.

      Director general Lord Hall said the BBC had failed to protect the victims.

      The review found that senior managers were not told of complaints about Savile because of an “atmosphere of fear” which still exists in the BBC.

      The technique the BBC often uses – of having just one side of an issue on for ‘interview ‘ does occasionally bite back – as in this case .
      It might be noticed that whenever there is an ‘American ‘ issue it will be a Democrat – ideally one who worked for Obama –
      Then it becomes a 4 minute ‘love fest ‘ of agreement between the Beeboid and interviewee .

      The occasional republican -such as Sebastian gorka – turns up knowing full well of BBC techniques and invariably fries the beeboid .

      When it goes wrong – as in this case – it is the standard ‘technical issue ‘ or ‘we haven’t got much time ‘ or ‘the other side isn’t here ‘( why ? ) … -and now the weather …..

      That interviewee won’t be turning up on the BBC in the near future – or indeed – ever …

    Always something of a mystery that the BBC is so violently opposed to Brexit but supports every other ‘independence’ movement…whether or not they are entirely peaceful or use extreme violence to win.

    The IRA are still romantic rebels to the BBC, Islamists and BLM extremists who harbour hopes of a Bame independent mini-nation are all cheered on by the BBC….as are any other movement that will breakup and destroy Britain….such as the SNP or regional ‘nationalists’ such as those in Cornwall.

    Why is it that the BBC is so keen to see Britain torn apart and its identity and unity destroyed?

    Why do they support the SNP?…and yes they do despite the loud protestations of the national socialists’ street thugs.

    How is it that Scottish independence is a positive thing whilst Brexit is the apocalypse?….Scotland has been in a close and dependable union for 3 centuries…3 centuries in which ties have been cemented and social, economic, military and family relationships closely intertwined whereas the EU is purely a short-term political imposition designed to destroy nation states to create an EU empire…undemocratic, distant and unforgiving.

    Scotland breaking away would be extremely damaging in so many ways and suicidal for Scotland whereas breaking from a politicial entity like the EU is much much easier and sensible given its intent to make Britain merely a region of the EU empire with no native identity or power.

    I have looked unsuccessfully for a BBC report on this from the Telegraph which informs us of the opinion of one of Sturgeon’s advisors….oddly nothing from the BBC…if it had been a comment on Brexit it would have been frontpage news….

    ‘Scottish independence will be ‘Brexit times 10’, warns Sturgeon’s economic advisor ‘
    ‘One of Nicola Sturgeon’s new hand-picked economic advisors has warned independence would be “Brexit times 10” thanks to the much deeper economic ties between Scotland and the rest of the UK.

    Prof Mark Blyth, who was appointed to the First Minister’s new economic advisory council in July, said that “pulling apart” more than three centuries of economic integration would “hurt a lot.”

    In an interview given only days before his appointment was announced by the Scottish Government in July, he said adopting a different currency and economic policy from the remainder of the UK would mean “significant short to medium-term costs.”

    In particular, he said it would mean erecting trade barriers with the English market, which is the destination for 60 per cent of Scottish exports.

    Prof Blyth, a Scots-born academic based in the UK, said optimists would argue “how hard could it be” with a country of only four million people “and we have loads of resources.”

    But the independence supporter said the pessimist view of “300 years of deep economic integration – good luck unwinding that” was “simultaneously true” and both views must be taken into account.

    His intervention emerged as Ms Sturgeon intensified her attacks on Brexit, arguing it was responsible for a drop in numbers of HGV drivers that have caused shortages of some food supplies.’

    Note the irony of Sturgeon attacking Brexit whilst demanding her own exit….her paradoxical positioning the same as the BBC’s.

      I don’t think the SNP has ever spelled out the actual consequences of a separation from the rest of the UK – for instance – my favourite – a solid border as a requirement for EU membership -which she seems to crave .

      I am assuming that the SNP thinks England would be a ‘friend ‘ to the new foreign entity and expect subsidies and other relationships to continue . However the English might have something to say about that ….

    Question…how many of the legendary 20,000 EU drivers that fled Brexit Britain were actually driving the products the BBC claims? How many were actually driving delivery vans for Amazon or Hermes….oddly there seems to be no shortage of such drivers…order stuff from Amazon and a different driver will appear every time…and the fields seem full of foreign pickers…how is it that some farmers can’t get the labour?

    Every time we hear of some shortage the BBC claims its ‘Brexit’ without providing any evidence that drivers did leave due to Brexit and without any proof that it is their absence that is actually the cause of the shortages.

    The latest is Ikea [a well known opponent of Brexit who will also make spurious claims about Brexit]…

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2021/09/05/exclusive-video-extinction-rebellion-activist-says-only-socialism-can-stop-climate-change/

    Extremist marxism that the BBC supports…their views are intertwined….anti-capitalist, anti-consumer, anti-democracy…you can hear this on the BBC day in day out…by the presenters themselves….

    ‘At an Extinction Rebellion protest on Saturday, a speaker claimed that the socialist model, along the lines of Communist Cuba, is the only way to combat supposedly man-made climate change.

    On the final day of the two weeks of demonstrations from the radic al climate change alarmist group Extinction Rebellion (XR), an activist from the Marxist-Leninist Revolutionary Communist Group (RCG) declared that socialism is the answer to climate change, to the applause of the crowd in Trafalgar Square.

    “The only logical response to the urgency of the climate crisis is through an anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist socialist movement built here on our streets,” the XR activist said.

    “Environmental destruction is an essential part of the capitalist mode of production. Any movement that is not anti-imperialist will simply be green imperialism. Socialism is the only alternative to the destruction born through capitalism, the needs of the people and the planet are put before profits.”’

    Note this friendly chat over at Newsnight…the intro was pure XR propaganda and a carefully crafted advert for the protests….gotta love the delusional ‘We’re all for democracy’….however they don’t care what people think and are not trying to win an election…er….thus it’s an anti-democratic aggressive pressure group that is in fact close to being a terror group in its use of its tactics….

    ‘Let’s call these pious Extinction Rebellion ‘activists’ by their real name: terrorists. And call in the police’

    https://www.mailplus.co.uk/edition/comment/98462/extinction-rebellion-activists-are-terrorists

    ‘xtinction Rebellion are back on the streets, attempting to cause as much disruption as possible – all to highlight global warming.

    As if it needed any more highlighting.

    As if this country wasn’t already overrun by climate concern.

    Across the political spectrum, across the media, across business. These climate change obsessives are fighting a war they have already won.

    It feels like every other sentence out of the mouth of the Prime Minister is now how we must build back greener. As the international environmental COP 26 conference is approaching, we are even beginning to hear a new government slogan to be browbeaten by: ‘Coal, Cars, Cash, Trees’.

    These are actions not those befitting a high-status protest group – and certainly not one that sees all too widespread sympathy among the chattering classes, as if its extreme ends justify its dangerous means.

    It’s time to call out the extremists at Extinction Rebellion for what they are.

    The Terrorism Act [2000] sets out a handy definition for us: ‘Terrorism means the use or threat of action where… the use or threat is designed to influence the government… and… the use or threat is made for the purpose of advancing a political… or ideological cause.’

    So far bang to rights.

    The Act’s definition goes on to say: ‘Action falls within this subsection if it… involves serious damage to property… endangers a person’s life… creates a serious risk to the health or safety of the public or a section of the public, or is designed seriously to interfere with or seriously to disrupt an electronic system.’

    Extinction Rebellion clearly meets this definition. It attacks property, levels cyber-attacks, and risks lives by blocking ambulances. All to advance a political goal. To cajole the government to do its bidding by disruptive, non-democratic means.

    No one should shirk from calling out this action for what it is. Eco-terrorism.’

    If you forest an area that wasn’t forest before, then you are sequestrating CO2 for the life of the tree, and with luck some of it will become marsh and then decay without oxygen and become peat, trapping the CO2 for many years longer.
    I’m not sure seaweed is as effective.

    Sciency woman “we are noticing the sea is getting more acidic cos of Climate Change”
    Are you really ??
    “Acidic sea” is a PR word ..The sea is still alkali and I don’t think changes in alkalinity are immediately noticeable .. Rather you need sensitive methods to detect any decrease in alkalinity.

    but the seaweed actually ameliorates that and buffers the acidity”
    Hmm

      This week was a seaweed festival special from Scotland where almost no one was Scotch
      The festival organiser was Welsh and had a “Yes Cymru” Welsh Independence poster behind her on the zoom call

      The seaweed festival is actually tomorrow, so Countryfile didn’t have much material so padded out the prog with 30 mins of old repeats.

      “Julia Barton, the Seaweed Festival’s curator and
      *environmental artist*”

      “Listening to BBC Countryfile try and say Scottish Gaelic names is really hurting the ears. “

        Al Beeb is driving and brainwashing young taff-people to so called ‘independence’ in the hope of reversing Brexit.
        They would like to see the break up of Great Britain. Both Al Beeb and Bo Jo are not patriotic.
        Important ! is Bo Jo trying to reverse Brexit?
