    Local news, Look North and dead sea birds have been found at Bempton cliffs. Somehow it is to do with the plankton they usually feed being affected by climate change. Naively I had thought warm weather meant more insects and whatever other food they eat ie that warm weather equalled plenty of food. Nobody seemed to consider a virus or whether the dead birds were just the usual numbers (they claimed unusual but I never believe anything ahead of COP26). And we had to have a female spokesman (I love using traditional words rather than the politically correct term) from RSPB.

    Yesterday Look North was highlighting the difficulties of pig farmers during the present CO2 crisis. We had two women being interviewed. Readers of this site who also watch the BBC may be surprised to learn that the majority of pig farmers are men. I assume the BBC have Kate’s phone number and they cannot be bothered to contact a man.

      “(they claimed unusual but I never believe anything ahead of COP26). ”

      Those few words sum up most normal citizens’ view of the whole sham show, Debs!

      When one recalls the fiasco of the ‘Kyoto bash’, which had pompous, fat Prescott chucking his weight around, and claiming he’d saved the world, which in fact meant absolutely b****r all, as they’re doing the whole expensive bash yet again, it’s clear that all the lefties will spend even more of our money to replicate the toothless non-results, so they can do it all again in a few years time. It keeps them in non-jobs.

      And all this to keep hard-working private citizens’ perilous concerns about eye-watering hikes in power costs well-hidden out of sight.

      Someone somewhere is creaming off billions of quid on all this, but don’t expect Britain’s most hated broadcaster to bother to try and find out.

        The fake president goes along with this, but sometimes he gets it wrong, saying things like he is not allowed to take questions. Not allowed!

      BBC version from Lurch and Peroxide.

      ****

      UK-US trade deal played down

      Story detail

      Since Brexit, the UK has secured trade deals with the likes of Australia and Japan but there’s another Boris Johnson wants to bag. The prime minister is over in the US for the United Nations summit, and as part of the trip he’s had a meeting with President Joe Biden. They discussed lots of issues including Afghanistan, security and climate change – as well as a UK-US free-trade deal. We knew it was going to come up because Mr Biden revealed they would discuss trade “a little bit”, but it’s emerged from the 90-minute meeting that it’s not a pressing issue for the US.

      The president, who often references his Irish heritage and expresses his fears Brexit poses a danger to stability in Northern Ireland, downplayed the chances of brokering a deal with the UK. “We’re going to have to work that through”, he said – it wasn’t exactly an enthusiastic response says our North America reporter Anthony Zurcher . The US seems uninterested in prioritising a new trade deal, he adds, with Mr Johnson admitting “the Americans do negotiate very hard”. He has also now played down the chances of securing a deal with the US before the next general election. However, Mr Biden and Mr Johnson “agreed to continue working towards a future full free trade agreement”, says Downing Street and the UK still wants a standalone deal. It’s really clear from both sides that there is no rapid path to a trade deal, says our political editor Laura Kuenssberg. But it appears ministers are looking at joining an existing North American trade pact which includes Canada and Mexico.

    Search for ‘Taliban Murder’ with google and the top report says:

    ‘The brutal reality of Taliban rule is coming to pass in Afghanistan as civilians are reportedly killed in the street, members of the resistance and former government are targeted in revenge killings and women are beaten for speaking out.’

    Which is odd because the worst I have seen on the BBC for a couple of weeks now is that some cabin crew have to stay at home and a girls football team + some singers have escaped to Pakistan. Top story today is that Imran Khan says banning girls from school is un-Islamic.

    It seems cold blooded murder is not the story it used to be.

    The cynic in me would think the BBC have taken it on themselves to apply political pressure to the Taliban without upsetting them instead of actually reporting the news without bias or omission. The arrogance of this is off the scale : just who do these people think they are ?.

    Applying for university: ‘I don’t want a token place’
    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-58640992

    David, 18, said he has been looking for places “suitable for a place for a black person”

    “Going to a university that’s diverse can make me feel confident in my culture and my skin colour”.
    Diverse here meaning a disproportionate level of BAME students hence he mentions London, Birmingham and Manchester.

    Just imagine for one minute how racist it would be according to the BBC if a white person said the same things.

    ‘Dr Jason Arday, an associate professor of sociology at Durham University, said the figures highlight that higher education is “systematically disadvantaging particular minority groups’

    They don’t mention Jason Arday is black and his entire career depends on writing about racial injustice with pieces like this for The Guardian:

    ‘If we want a more equal Britain, we must teach its true black history’.
    He then goes on to quote Martin Luther King.

    I will presume this shameless hypocrite does not include Martin Luther King walking in on a friend raping a woman and giving him some encouragement or the ludicrously disproportionate crime rates for black people. Nor will it mention why the Windrush people actually came to the UK by describing the life they wanted to escape which their own people created. And I wonder if he thinks the first page in the slavery history books should start by explaining how black people were sold to white people by other black people.

    We are living through the self-destruction of Western civilisation by the Left who are pandering to racist hypocrites in order feel morally superior to everyone else and thus convince themselves they are not the shallow, nasty, self-centred people we all saw them to be during Brexit.

    Meanwhile, the BBC Moaning Emole has the big name story.

    ***

    ‘In the music industry, you’re a hunter gatherer’

    Record label boss, Riki Bleau, has helped to discover some of the biggest names in UK hip hop and grime. He explains how he rose through the ranks from starting off selling CDs on the street, for our business advice series CEO Secrets. The offices of his Since ’93 record label, which occupy part of Sony’s London headquarters, are decorated with a symbolic wall of vinyl. There are 15 albums on the wall, all released in 1993. The records are mainly hip hop artists like Cyprus Hill and Wu-Tang Clan, but Radiohead’s Pablo Honey also makes the list.

    “You see, I was 14 years old in 1993,” explains Riki Bleau, surveying the wall. “I think that’s the age at which you start to choose your own identity, and in part you do it through music.” That’s why he called the record label he co-founded with Glyn Aikins, Since ’93. Riki Bleau is a rarity: a UK record label boss who is black. Yet the genre he specialises in – grime and hip hop – is populated by predominantly black artists. He’s helped to turn this into a UK success story exported around the world.

    On Toady at around 0745, balance, BBC style.

    Justremainin ‘interviews’ a spokesperson for the nutters closing the M25 daily. She lists a typical marxist anarchist absolutist set of demands. They are all totally unchallenged by Webb. He pushes only at a technicality on on one issue. Clearly the basic premise is completely acceptable to the BBC and cannot be questioned.

    Then he ‘interviewed’ the head honcho plod. Plod for some unaccountable reason are treading on eggshells on this issue, keen to balance the rights of the so-called protestors with the rest of us.

    What is nowhere to be found is of course the voice of the tens of thousands of people wanting to go about their normal business and prevented from doing so by both the marxists and by the police. Perhaps they are the same thing, these days.

    Which ever way you look at it, no evidence of impartiality whatever from the useless, biased BBC.

        This is the ship also used for the film Belle where a white man had a half-cast daughter to a negro slave and brought her up as a rich girl. It was – they told me at the start – based on a true story.

        At the society balls, there was no staring anf finger pointing : every man there tried ot chat her up and ignored the white girls.

        Of course she was a 100% anti-racist activist and partenered with a lawyer prosecuting the Zong case. She stood up in court and made a super speech about the above ship and got old whitey to pay the price.

        It all seemed odd so I checked it on the internet. The real true story was that the only thing we know about her is from her gravestone and she was the half-cast daughter of a rich man. She never met lawyer or had anything to do with the Zong.

        All the rest is 100% agenda-based lies. Which is why I don’t take anything these people say seriously.

        According to Wiki, the ship was originally the ‘Zorg’ and was a Dutch slaving vessel for a number of years, before being sold on to the ‘William Gregson Slave Trading Syndicate’ of Liverpool, who changed the name to the far more English sounding (?) ‘Zong’.

        William Gregson, the owner of the said syndicate and his son, were allegedly slavers, ‘infamous for their inhumanity’, which didn’t prevent both from becoming Lord Mayor of Liverpool.

        I’d suggest the BBC needs to take it up with the Gregson family, as it has no more to do with me, or my ancestors, than the (‘alleged’) persecution of the Uyghurs in China does.

      Many societies throughout history have practised slavery, and Muslim societies were no exception.

      It’s thought that as many people were enslaved in the Eastern slave trade as in the Atlantic slave trade.

      It’s ironic that when the Atlantic slave trade was abolished the Eastern trade expanded, suggesting that for some Africans the abolition of the Atlantic trade didn’t lead to freedom, but merely changed their slave destination.

        The word slave finds its origin in the Latin word ‘sclavus’ meaning ‘slav’, the ethnic name for the inhabitants of the Eastern Adriatic shores, the main source for slaves in Medieval Europe (hence the contemporary word ‘slavic’ to describe those from the region). Venetian traders bought extensively from the markets in what is now Dubrovnik, and shipped their cargo off to elsewhere in the Mediterranean and more widely, the Islamic world of the Middle East. Historians estimate that nearly 10 million Africans were taken out of the continent to become slaves in Muslim countries.

        “They entered into football so I entered into politics” and then gives three examples of when the Govt. responded to political campaigns, not overwhelmingly supported by the majority as he would no doubt maintain, that were initiated by footballers and their agents/ activists – Rashford, taking of the knee, and criticism of footballers lack of interest in helping to combat Covid. His blatant bias stops him from mentioning that he welcomed their political involvement and support when the European super league was being pushed, something he too opposed.

        Neville is well-known as being a schoolyard shop-steward, a dressing room agitator. He is no longer an honest pundit, he is a headline hunting journalist, full of sensationalist hyperbole, superlatives and his own self-importance, always seeking controversy, his socialist views and stupidity always apparent.

        His influence is greatly exaggerated by those who indulge him, apparently arrogantly unaware that his grandstanding is simply being used to chase ratings. So few fans now actually watch any punditry, tired of over-analysis and female “experts”, I honestly believe that most are like me. Turn on the streamed game at kick-off to avoid the knee, find something to do at half-time, then turn it off as soon as the final whistle blows.
        I’d love to know what the viewing figures really are for Monday Night Football on Sly or Football Focus on the bBbc now.

        As a Utd fan since early childhood, although I have become increasingly disinterested in recent years mainly because of the politicization and media over-exposure of the game, I know no-one who believes Gary Neville to be anything more than a gobshite.

      The population density for England (as opposed to the UK as a whole) is estimated variously at around 400-550 (depending on exactly how many are ACTUALLY living here).

      That would shunt England up into the next category, wouldn’t it?

      …and still they’re flooding in.

      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.’

    Ms Krankie has mysteriously disappeared.

    This comes some days after the “media” and even her own media wing at the bBC had to report on the death of a man in his 60,s dying on the floor of his own home after waiting 40………..yes FORTY hours on an ambulance.

    This is what Anthony Blair,s devolution project has led to in Scotland; coupled with D.Camerons ill thought through devolution programme where few checks and balances are in place to audit the devolved powers.

    This has for example allowed Krankie to have in excess of c. 40 spin doctors analysts and advisors immediately on hand to provide basically a rebels charter of propaganda communications..

    Time the British Army was enrolled in much more than just supplementing the NHS and ambulance service before this divisive bunch of charlatans see a severe backlash.

      Remember well when BBC CECUTT (as then) fought tooth a nail to avoid fessing up it conflated Welsh NHS with England’s in a blatant attempt to undermine Cameron.

      And when the BBC dropped Ed because his ratings went up when no one heard from him.

      So they had to promote Laura K from Miliband Crier whenever he entered or left a room.

    Naga Munchetty doing her usual thing…spreading anti-white black propaganda….

    She had a spokeswoman from ‘Reclaim the Streets’ and of course it was all a bit of love-in…..the woman suggested there was racism at play in how things are reported….Muncher then asked if she thought racism was at play…lol…talk about a soft and leading question that Naga clearly knew the answer to…she’d just heard it…naturally, we were told, the death of Sabrina Nessa hasn’t been reported at all by the media…this is because she is brown and they are white.

    Hmmmm…last few days her face has been prominent in the Mail and indeed has been widely reported in every outlet that I can see.

    Just more dangerous myth building about racist Britain from another one of those chip on shoulder anti-British BBC bames.

    Nihal’s no different…every day he’s banging on about racist Britain…wonder why he stays here. Had to laugh as he said he used to deliberately say controversial things in order to get the texts and phone calls coming in..on the Asian Network…but of course he doesn’t do that now…except of course that is the whole premise of his programme…to provoke whites and people who hate the woke nonsense…for someone who wants calls he is quick to cut callers off if they disagree and to block them on Twitter…however very crawling and obsequious to any celebrity guests on his show…even the white ones.

    Nicky Campbell’s as bad….listened this morning to a very, very left-leaning Campbell who was welcoming to his lefty speakers but those on the Right less so….his intro for them would be caveated with ‘We’re very tolerant on this show and want to hear all opinions’…thus suggesting this coming view isn’t really acceptable …or setting it up with the line that ‘A few people have this view’…as if it was a fringe, minority view when not really….those on the Right are outliers who are tolerated…just.

    “NetZero, NetZero, NetZero CO2”

    Yet now the state has to subsidise *actual* CO2 production,
    just to keep food on the shelves,
    hospitals running, and nuclear power plants operational.

      Napier?

      “Be it so. This burning of widows (India/suttee)raping children is your Muslim custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive rape children we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs.”

    Boris continues to suck up to the Imbecile in Washington whom he describes as ‘a breath of fresh air’.

    Meanwhile the anti-British Dotard has put any UK trade deal firmly at the back of the queue, behind the EU, and continues to meddle clumsily in Irish affairs.

    Breath of fresh air? More like a fart in a lift.

      Boris ignores Batley in 2021 – 3 teachers hide from Islam.

      Ahmadis suffer vicious persecution around the world. The main source of fuel for that persecution is in Pakistan, but what happens in Pakistan does not stay in Pakistan.

      I know that from my experience in the Yorkshire market town of Batley. In August 1985, when I was 11 years old, my parents organised an inter-faith meeting in the town hall. It was interrupted and disturbed when, according to West Yorkshire police, more than 1,000 extremists, led by Pakistani hate preachers funded by the Pakistani state, were bused in from around the country. The mob brutally attacked my English mother and my father, a dermatologist; my eldest brother and I; and a Welsh Ahmadi schoolteacher who was with us. My first cousin, a GP, was by chance driving through the market town that day. He saw the mob and saw his family and friends being attacked, so he stopped. He was recognised, pulled from his vehicle and savagely beaten up.

    A woman came on to Cambell’s show to say in her experience some people would rather stay on benefits than find a job.

    Naturally not go down well…Campbell wheeled in ‘Matt’ who denounced the woman for spreading ‘myths’…Campbell chimed in and added ‘dangerous’ myths.

    This is the BBC that told us how feckless, lazy and workshy British workers are and that we need all these immigrant to do the jobs these lazy Brits wouldn’t do.

    Oh…and odd how the non-white Lord below says that anyone can get anywhere in Britain regardless of race, religion or background….the exact opposite message the BBC pumps out to bames…
