Start the Week 11 October 2021

As the BBC pushes the ‘panic ‘ and ‘ be frightened ‘ agenda the Prime Minister has gone on holiday – as has the political class. So it is up to the Far Left anti British BBC to keep the flag of hatred and division flying over the people who still pay for the monster .

    Does our BBC realise that out in the real world, it is regarded as a very, very expensive woke-joke that is trying to destabalise Britain?

    The BBC have missed a trick. 10pm BBC1 news are going on and on about energy prices. Here we are in mid October and it is still so mild that we haven’t yet got our central heating on. As energy prices are high, that means we are saving even more money. The BBC hasn’t said anything about those on Universal Credit saving at the moment to help when it gets cold (which it will of course, because it is nothing to do with CO2 or man doing much).

      When the bovine rush to renewable energy bears its poisoned fruit, energy prices will go through the roof. Then some sense will dawn. The Left is not trying to save the planet via the hoax of Climate Change or AGW but as a tool to destroy Industrial Western civilisation.

      It worth remembering that before the Industrial Revolution, the population of the planet was around 500 million. And some 98% of those poor souls lived in cold and damp conditions. Too they were half starved. Life expectancy was very low.

      Now the planet has 7 billion people. Poverty of the middle ages type is around 10%. It was achieved by the invention of the Steam engine and the subsequent Industrial revolution.

      Sooner or later we will have to go back to coal. There is plenty of it and cheap. Its engineering requirements are straight forward. The added advantage is that it releases CO2, which is required for a productive agriculture to feed human beings. The increase in CO2 will not lead to a warmer planet. More’s the pity.

    Sunday night 10pm BBC1 news and the BBC we’re delighted to tell us that Kwasi had misspoken and wasn’t in talks with the Treasury about energy prices. As no name was given to the person saying the Minister had ‘mis-spoke’ how do we know they are reliable and not just a trouble-maker. Did the person have authority to speak. I thought everybody at The Treasury was working from home. Maybe it was just the cleaner, because nobody else was there.

    Right Al Beeb ,

    You and the Gramscians told us that immigration does not affect wages , that it enriches us all .

    Now that those some immigrants are staying in their own countries you tell us we get inflation due to the increase in wages of the British worker .

    So immigration did suppress wages didn’t it ?

    You , Al Beeb , can atone for your deviousness by having those Gramscians who said immigration did not affect wages debate with those Gramscians who say that wages will rise without EU immigrants but it will be damaging.

    With a special programme showing some of the schizophrenic Gramscians who espouse two dichotomised viewpoints .

      BBC News Channel, Monday 15 December 2018
      In a report about African Penguins and why their numbers are in decline we said conservationists say their natural habitats are being hit by rising tides caused by climate change. While studies show climate change is having an impact on penguin numbers, it is because of rising sea temperatures affecting fish stocks, rather than rising sea levels. Other factors include commercial fishing practices, which are making it more difficult for African Penguins to find enough to eat and survive. We apologise for the error.

    Sunday night 10pm BBC1 news and apparently the U.K. is the least biodiverse country in the world apparently and apparently it is all the farmers’ fault. It is marvellous, according to the BBC to have wild nature areas. I don’t think the woke mob at the BBC have noticed that if you leave areas to go wild they fill with brambles and nettles and there is little in the way of biodiversity. The BBC also forgets that the raisin d’etre of U.K. farming is to produce food. I suppose the BBC think it is better to import food from Lord knows where, produced to lord knows what standards with goodness knows how much CO2.

    I think I should stop watching Sunday night news on BBC1.

        Do you know what’s really good for wildlife – brownfield sites. Ideally, the kind with lots of overgrown rubble, collapsing, cave like ruined buildings, and half flooded old pits and tanks. The kind of sites that get condemned as ‘health hazards’ and earmarked for ‘redevelopment’ (around here anyway). They’re usually teeming with rare amphibians, bats, birds, and all kinds of insects and creepy crawlies.

        It all depends what kind of ‘wildlife’ you’re talking about really. Rats are wildlife, so are mosquitoes, gnats, and leeches, not all the critters we share this planet with are quite as ‘cuddly'(?)… ok as photogenic as Polar Bears.

        You know what is bad for wildlife? Mass immigration, and concreting over everything… who would have guessed?

    Not a good situation as the CCP are wrestling with multiple issues – not the least being can they stuff Taiwan quickly enough to swerve foreign intervention. North Korea seems likely to do something if China does.

            Patriotism is inversely proportional to Multicultism. The more there is of the latter, the less there is of a common core that all can support.

            For instance – the US constitution was written by an English/British people in English, embodying the combined experience of Christianity and the English Revolution. Mass immigration from the world reduces the patriotic core.

            I dont see how a Muslim for instance can have a natural affinity and ownership to a European Christian thesis. That is why the future of the USA as is, is bleak.

            In Britain we have a Christian monarch. So long he/she remains, so will we. The same holds for the Anglo-sphere.

            Immigration of a people from a very different culture is an existential threat.

    Our newspapers can’t help themselves but reveal which side they are on.

    The FT loves the EU: ‘Bloc support. Poles rally in favour of EU‘ – and if that were really true then there wouldn’t be a problem, would there?

    The BBC hints at which sections of Polish society are so keen on the “Bloc” that they feel constrained to have a demo about it: ‘Opposition politicians, activists and artists all took part in the demonstrations… Donald Tusk, former president of the European Council and now leader of the opposition party Civic Platform, called on people to “defend a European Poland”

    Our street-smart old friend Mandy Rice-Davies would, I’m sure, have had something to say about that: “Well he would, wouldn’t he?

    Speaking of newspaper titles that speak for our institutions rather than our populations: ‘NHS waiting lists trigger “tide of abuse” against staff‘ (Guardian) – which, aside from being a warning sign of a general coarsening of public behaviour, surely has a root cause in the expectational gap between the bold utopian promise of infinite care, free at the point of access, and the inevitable earthly reality of rationing by queueing.

    The NHS, which we worshipped to the point of ritualised self-flagellation during the pandemic (OK, a few enthusiasts banged their pots and pans) – at which turn of events it might have seemed appropriate for our NHS to bravely come to our rescue rather than shutting up shop. It has now turned that expectational gap between socialistic promises and reality into a chasm:

    Just a single GP for every 2,000 patients‘ (Daily Mail) – just that single doctor… and wait and see what happens when she gets married and starts having maternity leave, then goes part-time…

    Daily Express: ‘6,000 new GPs needed to sort crisis‘ – in their accompanying picture, our representative female, twenty-something medic, taking her covid hygiene seriously with facemask but letting her beautiful long auburn flowing locks shine and flow free, appears in scrubs of course and wears the mandatory award of the heroic stethoscope around her neck. Real young medic or photo shoot model, we wonder?

    In days of yore I recall as a kid, my GP, on call, responsive and available for housecalls, always wore a sari, had a stethoscope to hand – when actually required, and she was a very good family doctor.

    But this was in the days of Ted Heath… and we’ve come a long way since those days when on the rare occasion you ever met an Indian it tended to be at your GP surgery. And as for three-day weeks…

    Average GP on three-day week after “worrying” drop in hours‘ (Telegraph)

    It wasn’t only Charlie that had undergone some strange racial metamorphosis, emerging somewhat duskier than HE Bates intended…

    No, this peculiar racial transformation also infected the old and rather befuddled major, that I remember so fondly from the series in the 1990s, that also brought us the stunning Catherine Zeta Jones; by Jove!

    For Gawd’s sake, now the elderly major is a blinkin’ Asian. Well, of course, he would be… Why should I be surprised?

    Remember that this is set in rural Kent in the 1950s, when if you’d seen someone non white it would have been the talk of the village for a fortnight. In this series it looks like the cast of Eastenders.

      There isn’t any escape from the cultural appropriation by the MSM of British life pre BAME invasion. Even as recently as five years ago if a programme was set in a period pre 1960 it was rare that BAME actor would have been cast in a white role but that is no longer the case , The Black Anne Boleyn marked a new height in the cultural appropriation of our country by the invaders. I find it impossible to take such a character seriously and just switch off.
      This penchant for cultural appropriation hasn’t yet infected continental countries and provided you don’t mind the subtitles there is some reasonable stuff from Denmark, Poland , Germany , Norway and Finland but I don’t expect it will be long before we see the height of incongruity with Hitler being played by a black actor.

      Jeff, I am a child of 50’s Kent, and the only non white – if they were seen at all – were amongst the U.S. military based at Manston airport at the time. I remember there was a hell of a hoo ha, when it was reported that one of them had gone on the rampage with an axe along Ramsgate sea front. Not much has changed since.

        Who are you going to believe, the right on MSM or your lying eyes?

        I was watching Grantchester the other week, and now that poor old Leonard, the curate, has got six months for gross indecency, the new curate is of course a black man from Nigeria, as was so common in 1950s rural Britain.

        Mind you, Granchester had already had a black African bishop, as you often found in England circa 1958. The current bishop is Scottish. I had always thought it was called the Church of England, and the Scots had their own church, but hey, facts, schmacts.

        Remember folks, it’s the 1950s, and if your local curate isn’t gay, he’s black. And if your local bishop isn’t black, he’s Scottish. Hope that’s all clear.

    Prince Charles on climate change

    He’s long argued business leaders would be crucial in tackling climate change, he’s converted his cars to reduce his carbon footprint, installed solar panels and heat pumps, created new eating habits. Prince Charles has made changes in light of issues surrounding the climate and global temperature rises. We’ve interviewed the Prince of Wales about the climate and he reveals how he understands why groups like Extinction Rebellion are taking part in protests but says action like blocking roads “isn’t helpful”. He also describes the upcoming COP26 summit on climate change as “a last chance saloon” and says it would be “a disaster” if the world did not come together. Read his interview in full here.

    ***

    No mention of the crushing hypocrisy and scientific illiteracy of his family in their chosen field of virtue signalling that makes that of the BBC seem almost competent and impartial?

    Did he bring a paper bear to poo in the studio?

      My two, ‘Generation Z’ (horrible, American term, but then so was my ‘Gen-X’) offspring watch YouTube and Netflix, so do ALL of their friends – they often exchange recommendations on what to watch (and what not to) with each other via text and at school.

      For the most part they’re not even aware of live TV, or the BBC, why should they be? If they are aware, it’s something ‘old people’ like their parents and grandparents watch, and which they might be forced (reluctantly) to watch at school, or when visiting Gran. It doesn’t help that EVERYTHING they watch on it is the same, bland pap, stuffed full of ‘politically correct’ propaganda.

      NOTHING will change that now, logically, why should it? There’s all kind of good material out there (whatever your interests), and they can choose exactly what to watch, where, when, how, and for how long – if it starts to get ‘boring’ or ‘preachy’ they can flick on to something more interesting with a single finger swipe.

      Live TV is dead, it just hasn’t realised it yet. The genie is out of the bottle, and the future of entertainment are enterprising individuals and groups who can produce their own material and keep it engrossing. Although it has to be said there is such a diverse and massive potential audience out there, just about anything you can produce will be of interest to some of them.

      As for political leaning etc.., as a rule Gen-Z are concerned about the environment, but not to the extent of wanting to go hungry, walk to school, or go cold for it, and no, they don’t lose any sleep over it. There is such a total overload of information (and campaigning) on the subject, I would say there could be a backlash one day in the not so distant future, but already it’s seen as a ‘turn off’ subject. Which is a shame, because there are issues there which need to be tackled… in my opinion.

      They’re definitely more right leaning and conservative on most issues than the rather limp (but angry and outspoken) Millennials that proceed them and generally teach them, and rather despising of those same Millennials for their ‘stupidity’ and ‘hypocrisy’.

      On the down side, I would say there is (actually, for once the BBC might be right?) the potential for ‘far right radicalism’ among some of the not so bright of their generation. It’s telling that most of those arrested for being ‘far right terrorists’ are working class, white lads of the 15-25 age range. There may be good reasons why they’re angry though?

      Maybe the next ‘world dictator’ will be a ‘far right’ demagogue who started out as a ‘YouTube Influencer’? If so, a lot of the blame for their rise will (ironically) lie with the middle aged (increasingly Millennial) ‘liberal’ producers of today and the boring ‘politically correct’ pap they churn out.

        ‘far-right’:A populist coalition of the silenced majority who fear that they have been taken for fools as they quietly got on with their lives, like their ancestors, breeding, working, eating and sleeping. If the ‘far-left’ ‘went away’ everything would be OK eventually, especially after a drink.

It would be interesting if the Horror Bin and M’Grath did an expose of how much carbon goes into a solar panel and how much goes into a wind turbine and the amount of energy required in producing things that don’t work very well and wear out far too quickly.

    Perhaps Marianna would like to spring in to action to fact check? No?

    I thought not.

    Instead, in the meantime, we are going to have to put up with BBC Radio Global Warming this and Climate Change that and renewables, renewables, renewables for for weeks and then it will all be over.

          I was wondering about that too. It’s claimed we were saved from many of the all conquering European armies of past by the Channel: Philip of Spain (the ‘invincible’ Spanish Army was intending to cross from Flanders on the Armada), Napoleon (who reputedly threw a tantrum when told his army wouldn’t be able to cross on rafts and barges), and Hitler, as you say… with probably the most technologically advanced army up to that point in time!

          In which case, how come thousands of ‘refugees’ can just hop in overloaded rubber dinghies and zip over here? You have to wonder just how much ‘assistance’ they’re getting, don’t you? … and from whom…

    This is putting huge pressure on the window cleaning industry. What is needed is a government window cleaning strategy and taxpayer-funded plastic bucket subsidies.

    Alternatively, we could just let the market find its own level. Which it is pretty good at.
    Something our current socialist government seems to find unacceptable. As does the BBC.

      Often described as the “father” of Pakistan’s nuclear bomb, in reality he was one of a number of key figures.
      But he carefully cultivated his own mythology which made him a national hero, seen as having secured Pakistan’s safety against the threat of India.

    China has banned British beef imports of cattle under 30 months of age after a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), or “mad cow” disease, in the UK last month.

    The ban took effect from 29 September, according to a statement from the General Administration of Customs.

    China has yet to restart buying beef from the UK after agreeing in 2018 to lift previous restrictions.

    Beijing imposed a ban in the 1990s during earlier outbreaks of BSE.

    In September, the UK’s Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) said a case of BSE had been confirmed on a farm in Somerset.

The scandal involved milk and infant formula along with other food materials and components being adulterated with melamine. The chemical was used to increase the nitrogen content of diluted milk, giving it the appearance of higher protein content in order to pass quality control testing. Of an estimated 294,000 victims,[1] 6 babies died from kidney stones and other kidney damage and an estimated 54,000 were hospitalized.[2][3]

      That’s a weird one
      He had been on long-term sick leave since August 2020
      the Welsh government brought in a lockdown in December 2020
      7 days later he went for a walk outside his zone.
      A sergeant spots him and knows he has tested positive for Covid the week before, so asks why he wasn’t isolating.
      Having established that the cop had not actually broken the law on that
      , they charged him with being too far from his home.
      10 months later it comes to court. He offered 2 excuses, he didn’t know of the new regulation and the child was autistic so couldn’t go everywhere.
      The judge says no excuses are allowed.
      He gets thrown out of the police cos broke the law, even though he says he didn’t intend to break the law.
      His illness seems to be mental health, so maybe he’s not in a good state to do the job
      but he’d done it for 12 years.
      Can they really not rehabilitate him , like they do with cops busted for driving offences ?

      The first thing is was the woman prosecuted ?
      Cos if she wasn’t that isn’t equality.
