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 .

    Of course they missed the bit about not agreeing with their tactics. So roll on the next set of M25 bollox sanctioned by Royal Appointment hey?

    The Four Pests campaign (Chinese: 除四害; pinyin: Chú Sì Hài), was one of the first actions taken in the Great Leap Forward in China from 1958 to 1962. The four pests to be eliminated were rats, flies, mosquitoes, and sparrows. The extermination of sparrows is also known as sparrow fighting movement (Chinese: 打麻雀运动; pinyin: Dǎ Máquè Yùndòng) or sparrow elimination campaign (Chinese: 消灭麻雀运动; pinyin: Xiāomiè Máquè Yùndòng), which resulted in severe ecological imbalance, being one of the causes of the Great Chinese Famine. In 1960, Mao Zedong ended the campaign against sparrows and redirected the fourth focus to bed bugs.

    “Ohio police probed after man screaming ‘I’m paraplegic’ dragged from car”

    “To pull this man out of the car, by his hair – a paraplegic – is totally unacceptable, inhumane and sets a bad light on our great city of Dayton, Ohio,” Derrick Foward, of the local National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, told the Washington Post.”

    More race-baiting from our BBC. In a far away country, a man driving away from a major drug dealer’s house refuses to exit his car when asked. He has a bag of cash amounting to £16,500 in his car (who doesn’t?).
    Black officers remove him from his car when he refuses.

    THE BBC was accused last night of refusing to pay damages to Earl Spencer’s former head of security whose bank statements were forged on the orders of Martin Bashir. Alan Waller said he was angry and confused that the BBC was not engaging “in any meaningful way” over his claim for £500,000 compensation. His dismay has been fuelled by a payment of hundreds of thousands of pounds to Matt Wiessler, the graphic artist who mocked up Mr Waller’s statements on the orders of Bashir. Bashir used the fake statements to win the trust of Earl Spencer, who introduced him to Diana, Princess of Wales, leading to his interview with her. Mr Waller said: “My name was dragged through the mud repeatedly by Bashir. And yet there has been no meaningful engagement by the BBC.” Bashir used the mocked up statements as evidence that Mr Waller was receiving money from both a tabloid newspaper and the security services to spy on Earl Spencer and the princess. The claims were false. Bashir asked Mr Wiessler to fake the bank statements showing mocked up payments which he then showed to Earl Spencer.

    Lawyers for Mr Waller have offered to settle all claims against the corporation for £495,000. Mr Waller said: “The BBC has not accepted this [my claim]. Equally, they have not engaged with us in any meaningful way nor offered to do so. Instead, they have indicated that they wish to stretch matters out to the next level, which of course, if the matter has to go to court, will incur massive legal costs.”

    Marianna Spring once again organising the dots to her own liking and presenting us with an intriguing conspiracy theory that the BBC just loves to peddle…..anti-vaxxers are the sinister people behind pregnant women having doubts about getting vaccinated

    Hmmmm….was it not official advice that they shouldn’t get vaccinated?….

    ‘Pregnant women are not able to get the new coronavirus vaccine due to a lack of data on its use among this group.

    The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) says it does not advise giving the jab, developed by Pfizer and BioNTech, in pregnancy, adding that it “favours a precautionary approach”.’

    Who knew that the JCVI was a sinister anti-vaxxer group?

    Here’s UNICEF….

    ‘Vaccination of pregnant women has not gone through all the clinical trials: more precisely, pregnant women were not part of the groups that were studied. Pregnancy is not a contraindication for the vaccine, which means that pregnant women have the choice of getting vaccinated or not. However, at this moment, doctors can only give a recommendation, and then a pregnant woman has to choose for herself which is a higher risk for them. There are various groups of experts who disagree on this issue, so we have American groups of gynaecologists and obstetricians who are advising that pregnant women get vaccinated, while in Britain they are not coming out either for or against it. The research is not yet complete, so we cannot give clear and solid scientific advice. It is up to pregnant women to choose for themselves and to consult their doctors about it.’

    The advice has changed now but the doubts were sown by the official advice and not anti-vaxxers.

    And what about heavy periods or that they have stopped…this is again, apparently, anti-vaxxer myths…hmmm….and yet it’s true…as the BBC itself told us….

    ‘At a Covid vaccine appointment, you will probably be warned of possible side effects – fever, headache, a sore arm for a day or two afterwards. Changes to the menstrual cycle will not appear on the list.

    But women online around the world have started asking if early, heavy or painful periods might be an unlisted reaction to the jab.

    Dr Kate Clancy, a medical anthropologist, shared on Twitter her experience of an unusually heavy period following the Moderna vaccine, and received dozens of similar accounts in response. With former colleague Dr Katharine Lee, she launched a survey documenting people’s experiences.’

    So there may well be a link and women are justifiably asking questions….but the BBC denounces them as dangerous anti-vaxxers…..but…er…the BBC also published the doubts and questions….soooo…are they also dangerous anti-vaxxers spreading myths and lies?

    Listened to Clive Myrie on 5 Live this morning telling us that we are 40,000 nurses short and Brexit may be the cause.

    Unfortunately the person they brought in to discuss this came up with some inconvenient facts….actually 4 in 5 of those 40,000 vacancies are filled by agency nurses and any drop in nurses wasn’t Brexit but the change to language qualifications [and many nurses came from Asia not the EU]…plus, as with lorry drivers, other countries have improved their own terms and conditions and are competing for nursing staff….and by employing foreign staff retention is always more difficult…they may, understandably, prefer home if the offers are good enough.

    Brexit has nothing to do with the number of either lorry drivers nor nurses.

    Curious how the BBC forgets that up to 300,000 people are still coming here….are there no lorry drivers, no medical staff, no agri-workers, no care staff, no chicken wranglers, no hospitality staff in amongst them…or is it just the EU that provided all those cheap labourers?

      The Remainer 5 th column is gearing its self up for another attempt to overturn the referendum result, either by persuasion or by dictat. Their playbook is clear:
      *Close covert cooperation with Brussels
      *Blame every shortage or inconvenience sufferedby the public on Brexit
      *If there aren’t enough crises manufacture some and exaggerate those that do occur, NPI, fuel, Christmas shortages, illegal immigration , NHS staff shortage, and many more to come
      *Use the MSM , which is now even more pro Remain than it was in 2016, to ram the anti Brexit message home
      *Get rid of Boris because even he can’t renege on Brexit and replace him with a covert Remainer eg a May type, or, even better, get Labour back in power
      * If the polls are good hold a second referendum if not just go back in the EU ‘because it’s the best thing for the country’, joining the Euro and passing legislation to prevent any further referenda so we are stuck in it.

      Make no mistake they have the power to do all of the above.

    After reading the full story, it’s quite clear that the guy wouldn’t get out of the car to let the police search it because it had a bag of $22,450 in it just after he left a house being watched because of all the drug use.

    So who do the BBC side with ?. The police or the black drug dealer ?.

    Sorry, no prizes for this one. The answer is obvious when you know the BBC.

    DC Comics reveal that latest Superman character is bisexual
    https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-58879161

    The BBC luvvies wetting their panties again.

    ‘Since the series was released in July, Jon has already fought wildfires caused by climate change, scuppered a high school shooting, and protested against the deportation of refugees.’

    What a shame he hasn’t managed to tackle the much bigger problem of murders of black people by other black people. Seems a bit racist to me.

    ‘He said that, despite backlash from “trolls” on social media, reaction to the storyline has been overwhelmingly positive.’

    Try putting it on facebook instead of left-wing, gay forums and twatter then.

    The youtube video which came up top of my search was overwhelmingly (to the point of 100%) extremely negative.

    One thing the BBC will never tell us is how many people actually buy it.

    What this has to do with BBC bias, is that more and more, here in ‘The Turrets’, we’re going back to our roots, and watching TV stories and films from when they were well worth seeing, and we could learn and understand the factual news from decent presenters and newsreaders.

    A chum here has mentioned that ‘The Darling Buds of May’ is a disaster. What on earth were the bbbc thinking about when they decided to trash such a fabulous British story!

    ‘I can’t leave people without a tree at Christmas’
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-58847229

    A totally made up story about how this tree seller cannot find delivery drivers to deliver his Xmas trees. The article hints that everyone used to collect their own tree anyway.

    What next from the BBC? A pimp complaining about fuel costs to deliver his Hos to clients?

      The BBC are currently on a Brexit-spite driven campaign to pull the country to pieces – so they try to make us have sympathy for this ‘victim’. Which is a bit of a scumbag trick considering their charter – but they don’t care. This rank hypocrisy is why I despise the Left so much.

    Read the Government response and weep.

    It includes:
    Decisions about legal aid funding are a matter for the Legal Aid Agency (LAA), which is responsible for administering the criminal and civil legal aid schemes across England and Wales. As the LAA operates independently of Government, Ministers can neither intervene in, nor comment on decisions made about the grant of funding in individual cases.

    How convenient for them all.

      If we lived back in say 1990 many would have signed a petition like this with no thought of the personal consequences . But thirty years later , in the age of cancel culture and evangelical Wokery , one has to at think about saying , writing or signing anything. Who knows where e mail addresses might end up and on what list leaked to the Woke zealots by their sympathisers in the civil service.
      I’m afraid that we are slowly being cowed into submission and unless there is an organised mutually supportive resistance those who the Woke consider potential leaders eg Laurence Fox or TR , of such a resistance will be picked off one by one.

      Come on, you must know this is not even a remote possibilty?

      The Human Rights Act requires that anyone facing a custodial sentence receives a fair trial, and not having legal representation amounts to an unfair trial.

      This should be obvious to anyone with even half a brain, also the fact that they might not actually be guilty !

      The point however is that those who are found guilty should be expected to pay back the money which has been expended for their defence as well as compensating their victims.

      In the case where deportations are available only one legal aid claim should be allowed.

    The Daily Express says: ‘Don’t panic…‘ – and that right there has to be reverse psychology at work because now I’m worried. I wonder if SAGE, our top experts in crowd psychology, could explain?

    Our domestic-minded headline writers seem to think the fuel crisis is safely in the rear view mirror, for today at least.

    The FT takes a considered view of the wider energy issue: ‘Gas squeeze, how Europe’s reliance on volatile imports fuelled crisis‘ – we’ve seen fuel shortages, inflation and now the FT warns of interest rate rises in December. It’s like it was the 1970s. I’m half expecting flared trousers and disco music to make a come back.

    DC Comics reveal that latest Superman character is bisexual

    Mind you, come to think of it… she couldn’t ever properly make up her mind whether to go with Clark Kent or with Superman, so I guess what’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander?

    Is this comic still meant for kids? Do kids want to trouble themselves with such complex gender-bending triangles?

    They used to wonder whether Superman was a bird or a plane – not a bird or a bloke.

    I suppose while the unlikely likes of Prince Charles, Boris Johnson and Nicola Sturgeon tuck their top clothes inside their knickers to vie with one another to save the world at Cop26, so comic character Superman can take the day off to concentrate on untangling his newly complicated love life.

    The Guardian makes a bold assertion: ‘UK’s covid failings among worst in history – inquiry

    What… worse than Edward III’s response to the Bubonic Plague that reached England in June 1348?

    Worse than Charles II’s response to the 1665 Great Plague of London?

    I guess there’s a clue there somewhere about the Leftist view of history only beginning around about the Premiership of Maggie Thatcher and also why our ancestors didn’t seem to bother with accusitory post hoc inquiries.

    There’s an interesting sub header on the Guardian frontpage: ‘”This happened despite the UK counting on some of the best expertise available anywhere“‘

    Bravo Whitty and Vallance et al, bravo!

    I think it would be safe to say that the remedy proposed is rule by public health officials and their policy of permanent strict lockdown in perpetuity.

    Where’s the inquiry into the origins, causes and route of importation of the virus?

    The Left are like a caged budgee with a mirror – clucking and preening themselves in fascinated admiration of their own perfect reflection.

    Of course, Superman-like Captain Hindsight Sir Keir would have turned the globe backwards in time and locked us down good and strong at a moment just before lab assistant Wang King Ho sold that dodgy bat carcass he picked up at work down at his local wet market.

    Mirror: ‘Covid report: Govt failings. Deadliest of delays. PM could have saved thousands by locking down just days earlier. More than 20,000 lives could have been saved...’ – really, how many more than 20,000? Why’d the Mirror bother to round down this speculative figure?

      California to enforce ‘gender neutral’ toy aisles in large stores
      https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-58879461

      I sometimes wonder if the BBC is sending itself up, trolling us all.

      It brings to mind the occasion when an aunt of mine (leftist, progressive, liberal) gave her great-nephew a doll for his 3rd birthday. I think the idea was that he’d not be jealous of his little, baby sister, or something.

      Anyway, doll got shoved in the back of a cupboard and ignored (by our son, not us), until little sister turned 2 and discovered it – much to her joy. It then spent most of the next 5-6 years sat on daughter’s bed, being groomed, cuddled etc…

      Meanwhile son used to like picking up sticks in the garden and ‘shooting’ or ‘whacking’ things with them.

      Seems you can create as many ‘gender neutral aisles’ as you like, but boys will be boys, and girls will be girls…

      OT a little, but is Even Low Packham’s Chinese clone?! Scary.

      Finally, ‘Open Barbers’, I don’t care what gender/sexuality my barber has (couldn’t care less), but would you let any of those near your hair?

    Chief headline on the Beeb’s website just now:
    Covid: UK’s early response worst public health failure ever, MPs say
    By Nick Triggle

    As usual, the Labour Party’s propaganda department is accentuating the negative, and minimising the positive in its remorseless assault on this Government. Did the committee members actually say that I wonder- or, is Nick paraphrasing, BBC style?
    He also mentions that 150,000 people have died so far with Covid in the UK; but official sources suggest a tad over 138,000. However, as we’ve observed, the Beeb is adept at increasing numbers (especially those of intentionally overrepresented BAME employees within its ranks).
    One oddity, though, is the ‘post-truth’ impact of the dread disease on Ethnic minorities. Nick observes:
    “…The report highlighted “unacceptably high” death rates in ethnic minority groups and among people with learning disabilities and autism.
    For ethnic minorities, there were a variety of factors, including possible biological reasons and increased exposure because of housing and working conditions…”
    Odd, because the suggestion that there might be ‘biological’ factors to explain high ethnic minority mortality rates, goes against the absurd liberal (and therefore Beeb’s frequent) assertion that ‘race is a social construct’ with no biological basis. As an aside, perhaps they’d also like to explain why mixed-race folk struggle to find compatible organ and bone-marrow donors.? As another incidental, these days ‘mixed-race’ always appears to involve a black element, and ditto with the Beeb-beloved term- ‘diverse’.

      Barleycorn, it is a mystery why there is a high number of UK fatalities of BAME people to Covid as that is not supported by the history of the virus thus far.

      It started in BAME China. Transfered itself in some way (via BAME cabin crew?) to two or three cruise ships. The virus found a ready home in BAME Singapore and BAME South Korea (the M & E stand for Majority Ethnic in the Far East) and afflicted mixed race New Zealand and mixed-race Australia. It hit India badly, so in that the BAME claims would be correct and the same is true for Brazil’s African population.

      Curiously the virus has not touched BAME Island communities and in many BAME African nations, where the borders are porous and people move freely, again the cases and fatalities are lower than White Majority Ethnic nations. So why are BAME people falling sick and dying more readily in the UK?

      Could it be the UK climate? BAME affluent lifestyle in the UK? Existing health issues or co-morbidities such as obesity? Incorrect diagnosis? That latter is highly likely. The deaths have been assumed to be due to or with Covid but have been something else like influenza. Our NHS may not be quite as well led as that in Nigeria but would the NHS discriminate against BAMEs in any way? I very much doubt it. Either the statistics are deliberately being distorted or misrepresented …. or both.

    One of the Bbbc’s favourite authors Sally Rooney, dour-faced and dull and a pretentious peddler of teenage mummy-porn, has revealed another reason as to why she might be so admired in W1A.

    As if being young, female, Irish and a self-confessed Marxist wasn’t enough, it seems Ms Rooney is also, apparently, anti-semitic.
    Now that she is firmly established in Guardian-land, the graphically adapted tv version of her self-indulgent ode to teenage angst and gratuitous sex, Normal People, found acclaim amongst the frustrated wine-o’clockers of the chattering classes, she has decided that she supports the cultural boycott of Israel and is, stereotypically, a staunch supporter of Palestine.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10082311/Normal-People-author-Sally-Rooney-refused-allow-new-book-published-Hebrew.html

    Happy to have her works translated into Hebrew while she was relatively unknown now that she can afford her “principles” she’s not so keen.

    Apparently her books are achingly dull, her politics sixth-form and any substantial personality absent. With her politics so achingly predictable, no doubt she is pro-Sinn Fein, pro-SNP, a Corbynista, anti-British and US, I expect we’ll be seeing a lot more of her works on the Bbbc.

    Well, those of us, not me, who are foolish enough to still pay the licence-fee anyway.

      Rich, Sally Rooney’s latest book was Book at Bedtime on BBC Radio Flaw for two weeks. I caught a couple of episodes – it was, as you say, achingly dull. The plot in the episodes I listened to was confusing and the dialogue extremely dull. In comparison, the current Book at Bedtime, Harlem Shuffle by Colson Whitehead is a real page turner, can’t wait for the next episode. Highly recommended.

    Whitehall’s Hard-Left Race Lectures Revealed:

    “The new Department of Levelling Up is to be lectured to by David Olusoga, who believes “the north is not going to be levelled up, it’s going to be offered flags and xenophobia instead”, and who claims “Boris Johnson is utterly careless of everyone but himself”.

    “The Home Office has invited Priyamvada Gopal to talk, an even more questionable move given she’s said that “Priti Patel is also a reminder that many Asians in British Africa had ferociously anti-black attitudes and were used by colonial administrations to keep black populations in their place. An attitude she brings to government.” She also likened the chair of the PM’s Race and Equalities Disparities Commission to Joseph Goebbels.

    “The Home Office permanent secretary will also be appearing alongside John Amaechi, who last year sparked a culture war battle after making a children’s video with the BBC about White Privilege, a concept the Commons’ Education Committee concluded was holding back working-class communities.

    The global and national outcry against racism ignited by the tragic and senseless killing of George Floyd means the stakes for inclusive representation are higher than ever before. The challenge for our creative industry is great but not insurmountable.

    Once we unequivocally accept there is no monopoly on creativity then we can actively seek the diversity we require for our industry to thrive. The current global pandemic has only exacerbated this pressing need.

    Here is some interesting history which I doubt readers know much about.

    The BBC has been pushing a global warming narrative at the general public ever since 1957 when it participated in the “the geophysical year” and made a program called “restless sphere”.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00yt7l6

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Geophysical_Year

    There are allegations of a company set up by the BBC with an interest in Climate Change which has since been sold although I am unable to find any data about this.

    Currently however there is a group called the IIGCC the International Investors on Global Climate Change and there is a list of those companies who hold investments with them, included in this list is the BBC pension fund, meaning that the BBC and its staff have a vested interest in protecting the values of their investments and promoting the scam of man made global warming.
