    It’s a dilemma, as Fed suggested recently, whether to subject oneself to endless BBC blether from and over COP26 in Glasgow or whether to stay switched off and take a break from Biased BBC. Fortunately, there’s always …

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #1 – oh oh, someone at the BBC has not been paying attention


    Soaring cost of global gas prices, eh? You mean the gas price, down 70p per therm approximately from its all time high? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business/market-data The details are on your very own web-site, BBC. £3.5billion per year for not doing a good job? I think it is the BBC that ought to be going bust.

      As a non believer – i havent seen any of the cop thing . In fact i dont have a TV any more – so i source stuff from elswhere…
      ……however – its important to witness the sheer loonyness of the current climate… and its ‘ warming …
      There should be a prize for the most loony green thing which can never be policed ..


      • Up2snuff says:

        Sure, Fed, it is a madness. And the fear thing is, I think, really significant.

        We have rejected the God of the Bible, the God of Judao-Christianity, and seem to be turning into a pagan society where we have to have all these fears. Lots of fears, together with witch doctors to shake some bones, slice open a previously alive chicken or somesuch and examine the entrails and proclaim whether these pagan forces have been sufficient to turn the warming into cold.

        If ever we needed a spiritual revival to turn us back to the God of creation it is now. Either that or the Lord’s return to start some righteous rule over this earth. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they will be filled.” (Matthew 5v6)

        I’m getting mighty hungry.

        For first prize I nominate Archbishop Justin Welby. He has come to the conclusion that not doing anything on Climate Change will be worse then the Holocaust.

        But he has been upped by the Chief Pontificate in Rome, The Pope Frances. He pontificates that it will be worse then WWII.

    Kids are scared to sleep at night with Climate Change …

    The truth is that this will always happen – to a more or lesser degree – the domination of the mind whether by the BBC or Mark Zuckerberg will continue …

    It was always the women, and above all the young ones, who were the most bigoted adherents of the Party, the swallowers of slogans, the amateur spies and nosers-out of unorthodoxy. But this particular girl gave him the impression of being more dangerous than most. Once when they passed in the corridor she gave him a quick sidelong glance which seemed to pierce right into him and for a moment had filled him with black terror. The idea had even crossed his mind that she might be an agent of the Thought Police. That, it was true, was very unlikely. Still, he continued to feel a peculiar uneasiness, which had fear mixed up in it as well as hostility, whenever she was anywhere near him.



  4. MarkyMark says:

    BBC have been told to stop reporting the Pandora Papers for a while to give COP26 a chance for the elites to tell you how to live.



  5. MarkyMark says:

    We’re all Spartacus that’s the point. It matters to me also because I see what a tremendous ‘quote on quote’ mess we have made of the planet over the last 30-40 years.

    The Great Leap Forward (Second Five Year Plan) of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) was an economic and social campaign led by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from 1958 to 1962. Chairman Mao Zedong launched the campaign to reconstruct the country from an agrarian economy into a communist society through the formation of people’s communes.

    Mao decreed increased efforts to multiply grain yields and bring industry to the countryside. Local officials were fearful of Anti-Rightist Campaigns and competed to fulfill or over-fulfill quotas based on Mao’s exaggerated claims, collecting “surpluses” that in fact did not exist and leaving farmers to starve.

    Higher officials did not dare to report the economic disaster caused by these policies, and national officials, blaming bad weather for the decline in food output, took little or no action. The Great Leap resulted in tens of millions of deaths, with estimates ranging between 15 and 55 million deaths, making the Great Chinese Famine the largest famine in human history.

      Nature can create havoc and leads to massive human loss. But whatever dire situation maybe, politicians will make matters worse.


  8. StewGreen says:

    Tommy Robinson is trending due to ripples from a ROAR incident
    He treated 4 children including his son to a new Luton restaurant
    .. The restaurant accepted his booking, seated him, but then came over and said they wouldn’t serve his group.

    ROAR applies I guess just like that landlord had the right to shout at Starmer when he tried to use his pub for a photo op.
    But If Lammy, Diane Abbott, Ash Sarkar took children to a restaurant and were refused service what would happen ?

    I think is up to the courts to punish people
    It shouldn’t be up to individual businesses
    rather they should provide universal service.

    As ever the rule is that racism is wrong
    but falsely labelling people racist is equally so.
    TR has always had friends of mixed races and believed in racial equality.
    So that and calling him the current head of the EDL is smear
    The 14 min video https://youtu.be/-IZrpNQCYpw

    TR tried to explain it’s not fair to discriminate cos then people will retaliate tit-for-tat
    And sure enough his supporters did then add to negative reviews
    (The place did already have quite a few before Tommy)
    — Now libmob Twitter is lashing out at TR


    • G.W.F. says:

      The TR story sounds like the kind of issue for GB News to hold a discussion on. Maybe invite him on to the show.


      • Jeff says:

        No GWF, GB News won’t touch anything to do with Tommy Robinson.

        His treatment by this restaurant, particularly as he was with his kids, was deplorable.

        However, no-one in the media will touch this.

        Other than maybe the BBC or the equally awful Sky…and then they’ll run “Far right, racist activist, Tommy Robinson (AKA Steven Yaxley Lennon) abuses restaurant staff…”

        Sad, but true…


        • Banania says:

          UK Column also ought to be taking an interest in Tommy Robinson. Today they had a lot on Julian Assange being kept in solitary confinement, and this contravening internation rules about torture. TR had just the same experience but they didn’t mention him.


          • NCBBC says:

            If Julian Assange had been locked solitary in the USSR, he would be a hero. His indefinite detention makes the West no better then Stalin’s USSR.

    Im sorry but what does roar mean – ? I looked it up on google and it said its about lions….


  10. Dover Sentry says:

    If I was Tommy Robinson and I was recognised, I certainly would not eat in a Luton restaurant. God only knows what ‘spices’ they would add in the kitchen…


  11. Dover Sentry says:

    I’m disappointed that the Reform Party state this:

    “Man made greenhouse gas emissions also impact the climate”.


    We now need a Party that fully denies Climate Change.


    • taffman says:

      Dover Sentry
      UKIP is the only truly patriotic political party in the United Kingdom:

      ” We are proud of our culture.
      We are always supportive of this country’s Service Personnel and Veterans.
      We are renowned for saying the politically unsayable.
      We believe in a small state, Freedom of Speech and will always fight against the ever creeping establishment, Cancel Culture and Wokeism.
      We are the party of the everyday hard working man and woman.”


  12. Yasser Dasmibehbi says:

    Dover, Ukip are the party whose disgusting party officials got rid of two democratically elected leaders in a row. First Gerard Batten, then Richard Braine. Then they were left with no political talent at all and have had a few light-weight flops as leaders since but as a party they now amongst the political minnows, beyond redemption and its dwindling band should only be an object of pity.
    Reform is possibly the best option at this moment in time, and until something better comes along it is worth voting for.
    As you know there is a by-election coming up in Old Bexley and Sidcup where Richard Tice is standing for ‘Reform’ . The Tories are expected to hold the seat but there is an outside chance that Tice can swing it if he can capitalise on Batty Boris’s crazy policies.
    I hope he intends to launch a proper campaign, that is door to door footslogging etc. and not just having his name on the list and hoping the media will do it for him. Anyway perhaps somebody on here lives in the constituency and can keep us informed?
    In the future though, there will be a need for a coming together of the various populist movements and parties. Boris and his Tories, with only a few exceptions are taking the country on a path from which there will be no return.
    On a lighter note I see that the Tories have chosen their candidate for Old Bexley and his name is Louie French! I don’t think there is anything fishy about that, but it is rather unfortunate timing.


    • taffman says:

      Then it will be more Tory power.
      The Tories are not Tories anymore. We now have a government that tell us what to, do not do what we the people tell them .
      It is evolving into a dictatorship.
      I have posted this here before the Reform , UKIP and other patriotic parties need to form a coalition . Otherwise we will be saddled with the rubbish liberal government we have at present.

      UKIP stand for …………..

      Most posters on this site are calling for the above .


  13. Zephir says:

    So I would like to know, precisely, the cost of all these green measures without the weasel words that “business will step in”

    That is the cost to taxpayers, there is no such thing as government money, it is taxpayers money.

    Since when has business been a green charity ?

    we pay income tax, national insurance, we are now told we will alll eventually have to buy brand new cars: electric or hybrids at least.

    Many are paying employers and employees national insurance on IR35 temporary contracts.

    Car insurance life insurance, home insurance , broadband, regulary replacing computers with window faults / critical errors (try doing anything not online nowadays)

    We are told we have to pay hundreds a month to ensure we have enough to live on when retired.

    We are now blackmailed daily on TV that we have to pay for our own funerals, and life insurance for our dependants.

    Is there anything left ??

    Those retired and students who pay little if any tax are happy now to demand for us to pay for new boilers for all UK houses , to insulate every house in the UK, new cladding for buildings, and now to pay for all forests around the world, and pay for apparently unlimited illegal immigrants etc etc etc etc

    And how many at the bbc also demanding all this are actively minimising their income tax ?


    • Zephir says:

      And council tax, to fund their gold plated pensions


    • Banania says:

      Why should the taxpayer bear the cost of insulation (although he already has paid for an enormous amount of it)? Why should not people pay to insulate their own houses? Is it really a glueing-one’s-face-to-the-road matter?


    • NCBBC says:

      Government forces people to buy stuff as they know that people’s innate common sense tells them not to.

      Electric cars are going to be a disaster as electricity has to come from generation somewhere, and transported to where it is required. Neither the supply or transmission lines exist.

      Electric cars will come to a standstill, and then Hydrogen cars will be forced on us. They too will come to nothing.

      Industrial collapse, poverty around the corner, law and order breaks down The first industrialised nation of the world will lead the way to a post industrial world of poverty, cold and hunger..

      But the poorer parts of the world, which relies in the West, will starve. We will see starving children once more, but now in full 3D.


  14. Fedup2 says:

    Worrying times for BBC supporters of the false president . The state of Virginia has elected a republican instead of someone from the BBC party ( aka democrats ).

    Listening to sopel and Robinson sneering about it – with the Muslim presenter joining the boys sniggering whilst mentioning president trump made me realise just how far the BBC broadcasting has gone .

    There is no pretext of neutrality – fairness – objectivity .

    I’m waiting for the BBC to explain it away .

    For instance -how did the Biden voting fix fail ?
    Who did the counting ?
    Where were the fixers like in the presidential election ?

    The BBC boys sniggered at the return of the president they just call ‘trump ‘ ….
    ….which shows that the project hate will be firing up against president trump again …


  15. Fedup2 says:

    Dipping in and out of ‘Today ‘- they don’t like the word ‘paki’ which apparently is now racist . ‘Paki’ is short for ‘Pakistani ‘ – someone tell me how that is racist . I don’t see it .

    People may not like ‘paki ‘ in the same way I don’t like being called a ‘brit’ – which in my mind originates with evil Irish republican terrorists … but I wouldn’t ban ‘Brit’ – it’s just life .
    Boy am I out of touch .


    • StewGreen says:

      Newspaper says
      equating the terms ‘P**i’, which is a long-established derogatory term with a history of racist usage, and ‘Zimbo’, which is generally held to be an abbreviation akin to Aussie or Kiwi without pejorative association, is likely to raise eyebrows
      (Actually Kiwi is a nickname not an abbreviation)

      Yorkshire Cricket racism report ruled Azeem Rafiq being called ‘P**i’ was ‘banter’
      The panel said it “was not reasonable for Azeem to have been offended”

      (Claim he was made to cry)
      At least one Yorkshire player admitted to regularly using the term ‘P**i’ when talking to Azeem Rafiq, according to the report into racism at the club. But he was cleared of wrongdoing on the basis that it was perceived as, what the report says was, friendly, good-natured “banter” between the two players.

      The player also admitted to telling other people “don’t talk to him [Rafiq], he’s a P**i”, asking “is that your uncle?” when they saw bearded Asian men and saying “does your dad own those?” in reference to corner shops
      (The don’t talk to him bit is nasty surely ?)

      Despite admitting recalling that Rafiq broke down in tears at one point, the player insisted he had no idea he was causing offence and would have stopped if Rafiq had asked


      • StewGreen says:

        The nickname of the actual Pakistani team is the Shaheens
        The nickname of England team is the Poms
        …I don’t recall charges being pressed when the term “Pommie bastards” was used.


        • The Sage says:

          Aren’t the Dutch women’s football team known as the “Dykes”? I’ve no idea why.


        • Banania says:

          “The nickname of the actual Pakistani team is the Shaheens.” Is that in honour of my favourite elocutionally challenged would-be politician?


      • StewGreen says:

        Cricket has a long history of not cracking down on rough anti-English banter.


        • Scroblene says:

          I’d like to think that Peter McConnell was ‘enjoying’ the Aussies getting hammered over the weekend!

          Rattle your chains old boy!


      • Jeff says:

        Didn’t Prince Harry once use a similar term when referring to an old army mate? It was put down as nothing more than laddish banter at the time. Of course, this was long before his conversion to all things woke.

        FFS, don’t tell Meghan…


    • Zephir says:

      F2 absolutely agree, pakis use brit as a term of abuse (they don’t mind brit passports though)

      Pakistani is four syllables so quite reasonable to contract to two whilst british is two syllables so do not understand the laziness of needing to contract that to one.


      • G says:


        Let’s ask ‘Taff’, Taffman here what he thinks………………..

        Any ‘Jocks’ about?


        • taffman says:

          How often have you all heard of the word “Brit” being used to call the people of Great Britain, by all and sundry ?
          Well here is one broadcaster that uses it ……………………

          I am often called “Taff” – no problem.
          Its the ‘newly arrived’ peoples that get easily offended by the banter of the British.
          This country would be a far better place to live in if those that did not like quietly left.


        • Thatcherrevolutionary says:

          ‘Jock’ or ‘Brit’ has never bothered me.

          I actually know two people called Jock.


    • The Sage says:

      Yes, you can be also be an Aussie and that’s fine. Again using the first syllable and then adding an ‘i” sound.


      • BigBrotherCorporation says:

        Over the years I’ve worked with a considerable number of Pakistanis, they’ve all used the term ‘Pak’ for themselves and their country people, in the same way we might say ‘Brit’.

        The only difference with ‘P**i’ is the addition of an ‘i’, which is actually a local tradition from that part of the world too, e.g. Afghani, Kashmiri, Baluchi, Pa… oh, ah…

        This particular ‘racism’ nonsense is nothing more than a profitable little ruse, more fool us for falling it.


        • Sick of it all says:

          Correct. I previously worked at a nightclub frequented by large numbers of Pakistani students and they commonly referred to each other as ‘Paki’ in conversation, much like the blacks utilise the N word. In my experience the alternative ‘Stani’ causes greater offence.


  16. africamike says:

    Could it be that the doom goblin has realised the truth, that there really is no climate crisis? Sadly not I fear. But it is at least an example of the far left icons so beloved by our friends at the BBC, inevitably turning on each other.



  17. StewGreen says:

    The Climategate drama The Trick didn’t make the week’s top 50
    So we can see the viewing stats
    So we know it got less than 3 million, probably 2 maybe less


  18. StewGreen says:

    new #DrWho series 3 with #JodieWhittaker in the title role & introducing @JohnBishop100
    got 4.4m viewers.


  19. Fedup2 says:

    I understand that a second BBC droid has been ‘rude ‘ the the PM of the UK – first it was Robinson telling him to ‘be quiet ‘ now it is the Justin rowlatt – new kid on the block – going at him about a coal mine ….
    ……this is great news for us – it ‘nudges ‘ the anti BBC case that little bit more . Disrespecting politicians is one thing ( see the treatment of president trump ) but for the State broadcaster to treat their ultimate paymaster like that is something else …


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      Sorry Fed,

      Boris has got the spine of a blancmange. The BBC is safe in his hands.


  20. zxcvbnm says:

    The spin is on this article is blatant and dreadful:



    “according to US media projections” (as if these are reliable).

    “The Democratic president’s approval rating has fallen to 43%, according to an opinion poll average by RealClearPolitics.” – (so not a shock then?)

    “The McAuliffe campaign tried to liken the challenger to former President Donald Trump, who remains unpopular in Virginia” – (where is the evidence for this?)

    “Over the past several months, he has charted a course for conservatives – he talks frequently about race relations in the US, and has denounced the teaching of critical race theory” (and this is probably what won it for him – rejection of identity politics)


    • tomo says:

      I saw that piece.

      The BBC’s editorial teams really have a quite ugly partisan streak – when given a clean sheet, instead of reportage we are treated to a sly screed that hops around ticking boxes.

      I wonder at the production process and mindset of the peeps dreaming up that sort of slimy trash. I see nobody gets a by-line.

      A quick scan of the web site shows that it’s hardly an isolated piece – the front page is simply brimming with PC wokery, clickbait trash and eco-onanism.

      Somebody is managing all that, deliberately setting the recipe and arranging how it’s all delivered.

      – and if you balk at the squirming and slithering you’s obviously racist ‘n far-right.

      At a time when there’s considerable bleating about controlling online anonymity and shutting down challenges the absence of by-lines on the BBC web site ( or even a team lineup) is irony imho…


    • Sick of it all says:

      The Democrats simply don’t get the mood of the electorate at all; they haven’t realised that it’s perfectly feasible to support Trumpian policies without liking Donald Trump. The public are a lot smarter than the elites care to admit.


  21. digg says:

    Glenn Youngkin: a Republican has booted out the Democrat Governor in Virginia.

    A huge story for the USA as it is the first feedback for Biden on how well he is going down with the public.

    As expected the US left-wing press such as CNN etc. are bitching and demeaning the new Governor and trying to paint him as a mini Trump.

    The BBC of course try to bury this news on both their website and TV news as not important enough to be headline material which it so obviously is.

    I’m waiting for one of them, yes just one of them to claim it was rigged.

    Biden, you have months left and it won’t be pretty!


    • Fedup2 says:

      I guess the democrats will redouble their efforts to fix the mid terms next year . This may just be a ‘one off ‘ with the failed fixers found in a ditch .
      I’m at the stage – now – that when any BBC droid mentions ‘Biden ‘ I hear Obama . It is his mafia at the back of this – fired by his hatred for President Trump ….


      • G says:


        “I guess the democrats will redouble their efforts to fix the mid terms next year.”

        If Steve Turley is accurate, the Dems will sure have a problem in trying to ‘fix’ the next elections.


        • Fedup2 says:

          Stakes are so high G – if those mid terms are very republican votes – it goes further towards the theft of the 2020 presidential election – something which will not be voiced by the MSM BBC ….


    • Doublethinker says:

      I think that the MSM is changing their tune in recent hours. They are now saying that Youngkin won because he focused on local issues and, crucially, kept Trump away from Virginia and didn’t follow any of the MAGA themes. This is of course quite the opposite of what they were saying about him during the campaign.
      Perhaps the MSM recognises that the Dems by their insane Wokism have already lost the Congress next year and probably the White House in 2024, even Dominion won’t save them this time! But the MSM is trying to persuade the Republicans that they can only win by NOT having Trump as their nominee.
      TheMSM vitriolic hatred of President Trump is beyond reason .


  22. Fedup2 says:

    Charlie Moore – in his daily telegraph (DT) column targets the BBC High Priest of Green – the Harrabin – of having lost any sign of objectivity with regard to green .

    Welcome to the club Charlie . Harrabin does green – but there is another miserable one who does ‘welfare ‘ – for ever turning up as the mouthpiece of various lefty ‘think tanks ‘ demanding more tax cash be given to this or that benefit and using that abused word ‘entitled ‘ to it ( welfare ) .

    ‘Entitled ‘ is ok if you have made a contribution – but not if you – say – have no connection to Blighty apart from turning up in a dinghy .


  23. Doublethinker says:

    Sadly I think that this government decided that it needed the BBC to scare us ( nudge us) into compliance re Covid and has now realised that it again needs the foul corporation to scare us even more about climate change. I suspect that these two factors will mean the government doesn’t take action against the BBC.
    GBN is trying to offer a little balance to the climate change debate but it may be silenced by Ofcom for doing so , at the promptings of the liberal leftists and also of this government .
    Why Boris has taken on the Green agenda to such an extreme degree baffles me. If the government tries to impose even a quarter of the measures necessary to get to net zero they will lose millions of votes. Perhaps Boris calculates that no matter how extreme on climate he becomes Labour will always seek to be even more lunatic and so he is offering the least bad option. A high risk strategy.
    If ever there was a time to start a party which was sceptical about climate change , pro British and strong on defending our culture and our borders , this is it. There is gaping hole to the right of this government waiting to be filled and millions of votes to be had. Just like Zemmour is doing in France.


    • StewGreen says:

      I always skip past TalkRadio news bulletins cos they are woke-conformist.
      The good thing about GBnews was that it didn’t have news bulletins.
      And now that it has (due to Ofcom pressure ?)
      they’re the same woke-conformist brainwashing crap as well


      • Fedup2 says:

        Perhaps if dacre takes over OFCOM then the tune might change …


        • Guest Who says:

          Soon would be good…

          “TV channels and radio stations aimed at minority ethnic communities are highly valued by viewers and listeners, according to a new study published today by Ofcom, although certain content gives audiences cause for concern.
          Today’s report is the first of its kind. We spoke to more than 160 people from Indian, Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Black African and Arabic-speaking backgrounds to better understand how they think and feel about programmes that directly target their cultural or religious communities – and how their expectations differ from other mainstream channels and stations. Focusing primarily on our rules around harm, offence, hatred and abuse, we also asked participants what they expect from broadcasters, Ofcom and content regulation.
          The people we spoke to told us how minority ethnic TV and radio services provide a sense of belonging, and help connect them with their cultural roots, faith and linguistic heritage. They also provide an opportunity for shared inter-generational family viewing.”

    • zxcvbnm says:

      Unfortunately, for as long as the BBC exists, the chips will always be stacked (heavily) against right-wing parties


    • Banania says:

      I believe your first paragraph has nailed it, as far as the future of the BBC goes. The BBC has cemented itself in place as indispensable part of government control.


  24. Dover Sentry says:


    The Royal British Legion has gone woke.

    £70 million in the bank and the CEO is on £130,000 a year.

    Their facebook page shows veterans being 90% black and a black female in a wheelchair. There are three Asian males holding buckets and smiling but with no service medals.

    Comments could be going better.

    BBC to fact check??


    • africamike says:

      Hi Dover, I had a look and I have to say, I don’t see anything woke.

    One reason: Loudoun County Public Schools sought to conceal the rape of a 15-year-old female student by a male student wearing a skirt in the girls’ bathroom.

    Virginia Democrats Voted to Allow Schools to Refrain from Reporting Sexual Battery in 2020

    Democrats in the Virginia General Assembly voted for — and Governor Ralph Northam signed — a law allowing schools to refrain from reporting instances of sexual battery, stalking, violation of a protective order, and violent threats occurring on school property in 2020.

    § 22.1-279.3:1 of Virginia code had required that these, among a number of other major crimes, be reported to law enforcement if they occurred on campus. Democrats insisted that misdemeanors be extirpated from reporting requirements in House Bill 257, replacing the word “criminal” with “felony” in the code.

    In a stunning exchange between legislators in the House of Delegates last year, Todd Gilbert, the Republican Leader in the body, asked Delegate Mike Mullen “did I hear correctly that you would not have to report sexual battery to law enforcement any longer if we accept these amendments?”



  26. Zephir says:

    The contentious back-and-forth has taken on new relevance a year and a half later, after a bombshell story from the Daily Wire alleged that Loudoun County Public Schools sought to conceal the rape of a 15-year-old female student by a male student wearing a skirt in the girls’ bathroom. The facts of what happened next are disputed somewhat.

    While the father of the victim claims that he was told upon his arrival at the school that everything pertaining to the incident would be handled “in house,” Loudoun County Public Schools released a statement that alleges that the “Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office was contacted within minute of receiving the initial report” on the day of the attack. For its part, the Sheriff’s Office says that “an LCSO School Resource Officer was notified by Stone Bridge High School staff of a possible sexual assault. A thorough investigation and evidentiary analysis was conducted over the course of several weeks by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit.”


    • Zephir says:

      That said, the school’s attempt to push through the scandal without alerting — and in fact while actively misinforming the public — in an effort to change school policy to allow biological males into female restrooms and locker rooms would have been made even easier had the culprit’s behavior not crossed the arbitrary line into sexual assault. At a school board meeting on transgender guidance held less than a month after the attack, Loudoun County Public Schools superintendent Scott Ziegler announced that “to my knowledge, we don’t have any record of assaults occurring in our restrooms.”

    We’re not told what the Senate was debating at the time. Perhaps they wanted to enforce a certain strict size of domestic terra cotta oil lamp on all citizens and slaves throughout the emipre? That’s the sort of thing our latterday petty empire-building EU eurocrats seemed to focus on.

    Five minutes to save the world and all that but whisper it quietly only: The COP 27 will take place in Egypt’s Sharm El Sheikh city.

    The Star goes for an apparent direct editorial contradiction to the BBC: ‘UK’s “longest-lasting” snow patch melts away‘ – claims the Beeb… ‘Snowballs! Big freeze‘ – warns the Star. I guess you pays your money and you takes your pick – or, in the case of the BBC, you have a Licence fee extracted on pain of arrest.

    Not for the naughty let it all hang out Star the mainstream po-faced tight-arsed attitude to: ‘global heating‘ (?)

    Is that what we’re calling it now? We’ve run through global warming, climate change and extreme weather then weather weirding. According to the Guardian headline we seem to be almost back to square one: ‘Devastating fires of 2021 pinned on global heating‘ – or so they tell us of course quoting “experts” and employing that rather tabloidese verb pinned. The sort of expression I last heard out of the mouth of some villainish character in a TV crime drama. “You won’t pin this one me, copper 26!

    Oddly, as a man newly released from Lockdown into the street, and back on the Clapham omnibus only voluntarily masked, one feels powerless during this Cop26 thing. Never mind our cycling, our recycling… only our leaders can now save the planet.

    The ‘i’ does their bit both for big phama and for the big toy retail shopping industrial complex: ‘Toy shortage. Parents face scramble for most popular Christams presents – with some already out of stock‘ – pull the other reindeer’s antler – it’s got bells on.

    As predicted, in a tight race Greg Youngkin has beaten Terry McAuliffe by a couple of points in a disaster for the Democrat party, however that is not how the media (or at least those on the left) are playing it.

    The cause of the defeat is a simple one, it’s Socialism an evil ideology of failure which destroys everything it touches and is the root cause of the Democrat failure to hold onto Virginia.

    The media aren’t saying this of course. The defeat is apparantly because of Bidens sagging approval rating. This is a crazy reason! Why are his approval rating sagging? Without examining this they believe they can hide the peoples hatred for the policies of hate the Democrats have been imposing on the people.

    Lets not forget Boris’s admiration for the hard left Biden and his disgust at the conservative Donald Trump – along with other conservative leaders. They want Boris to implement the same politics of Hate which Biden is imposing regardless of the peoples disapproval.

    So watch out for the spin cover up and disinformation from the leftist media as the Republican party and Donald Trump steam back to popularity because that is something they cannot stomach.

    You could feel the horrorified reaction as Sopel and Robinson discussed the feet of clay that is Biden and the resurgent Trump…naturally Sopel couldn’t go without a sneer at Trump who has raised millions for his new social media platform through, apparently, ‘interesting means’….trying to suggest it’s all a bit dodgy and suspect….and of course they make a lot of Youngkin’s background in investment banking….but mention the unelected billionaire Soro’s interference in elections and you’ll be accused of anti-Semitism…because as we know Jewish financiers run the world….or so the BBC seem to be saying by default.

    Robinson said normally we’d have no interest in an election in Virginia….really?….The Americans seem to think it is crucial…from NBC…

    ‘Virginia’s race for governor — routinely held the year after a presidential election — is always closely watched and viewed as a harbinger for the following year’s midterm elections.’

    No mention on Today of this…if it had been a Democrat ‘of colour’ it would be headline news…

    ‘Virginia also elected its first black woman to statewide office in the state’s history, Winsome Sears, to the office of lieutenant governor as a Republican. ‘

    The BBC does mention it in their web report along with this….

    ‘The Republican candidate for Virginia attorney general, Cuban American Jason Miyares, was also leading that vote count. ‘

    So a Cuban American….hmmm…on the BBC’s racist programme ‘White Mischief’ we heard, amongst many other outright lies, that only Blacks were labelled not as just Americans’ but as ‘Black-Americans’ thus ‘othering’ them and putting them on the fringe of American society and citizenship….more White racism.

    Naturally that’s complete bunkum….there’s the BBC’s favourites, the ‘Native Americans’ and so many more….Latin Americans, Cuban Americans, Hispanics, Asian Americans, Irish Americans, Scottish Americans, Scandinavian Amercians etc etc etc.

    Nandy was telling us that Labour would ‘invest’ in a vast array of green policies and Rajan asked how they’d pay for that….Nandy dodged the question and spent a goodwhile spinning a line about the need for investment…Rajan asked again and Nandy said she’d tax the tax dodging companies but then slipped back to her narrative telling us that people complain about rising energy costs and losing their jobs but we should be talking about investment in the green revolution.

    Rajan didn’t ask how much she intended to raise from the alleged tax dodgers and seemed utterly uninterested in Nandy’s opinion that rising fuel costs and people losing their jobs were irrelevant to her……if that had been a Tory saying he didn’t care about the cost of living and job losses the BBC would be blasting him all day.

    Funny how coal is now evil and closure of mines and the loss of jobs is an absolute must…mines must close, jobs must go….seem to remember when closing mines was the worst thing ever…something which the BBC tells us destroyed communities and is the cause of mental illness oop North 40 years later. Naturally the BBC never tells you that Labour closed more pits than the Tories and cut more jobs….The National Union of Miner’s own website says:

    ‘Throughout the 1960s, with a Labour Government in office from 1964, the pit closure programme accelerated; it decimated the industry. During this period, nearly 300 more pits were closed, and the total workforce slumped from over 750,000 in the late 1950s down to 320,000 by 1968. In many parts of Britain, miners now became known as industrial gypsies as pit closures forced them to move from coalfield to coalfield in search of secure jobs.

    They were victims of madhouse economics. ‘

    ‘With a population of 300 million and ever expanding due to immigration the US is hoovering up the world’s resources and at the same time Americans are irresponsibly and thoughtlessly having more children.’

    The BBC titles it a “Shock Win” for the Republicans. A shock for them perhaps but everyone else was expecting it !

    There were three elections, Governor, Lieutenant governer, and Attourney General and Republicans won all of them, however the BBC has found some apparant acceptable news in all the buirning wreckage.

    “In more potential good news for Republicans in the state, their candidate, former US Marine Winsome Sears, is tipped to become the first black female lieutenant governor of the state, which was the former seat of the pro-slavery Confederacy during the American Civil War.”

    The reasons the BBC gives for the victory is predictably skewed.
    “fought election on crime and the economy, as well as how schools handle race, gender and mask mandates”

    No, this is not true! It was fought over CRT, the criminalising of parents using anti terror legislation for objecting to them driving a wedge between children at school.

      There is a lot more to the story though that isn’t being told by a media so biased that truth which doesn’t fit the narrative is simply omitted.

      Firstly the boy was probably mentally deficient in some way. The father having left and it being a one parent family the mother being pretty leisseiz faire over the sons behaviour and him being in serious trouble on many occasions which to be fair she does recognise.
      She admits this is not a trans kid he is just screwed up and even at this point he lacks the capacity to realise he has done anything wrong despite it being explained to him, he still cannot grasp it.

      It gets worse because this boy and the girl in question had consensual sex in that bathroom on several occasions without her complaining and it is unclear at what point teaching staff became aware of this.

      So how much of the blame can be placed on a mentally deficient child is pretty much moot because it should never have happened in the first place, and whilst what he has done is a horrendous act, it should not be allowed to deflect the blame from the real perpetrators – the horrible Democrat Socialists who destroy everything they come into contact with.

      The school board at first covered the whole thing up because they wanted to protect Socialism at all costs – not something we haven’t seen before after they covered up Pakistani child rape gangs and many other acts like it when it suited them.

      Saint Obammessiah, a man who in the eyes of the leftist media can do nothing wrong and have refused to report the corruption in his administration and the egregious wrongs he did.

    “Global financial system will be rewired for net zero – Sunak”

    The Great Leap Forward (Second Five Year Plan) of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) was an economic and social campaign led by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from 1958 to 1962. Chairman Mao Zedong launched the campaign to reconstruct the country from an agrarian economy into a communist society through the formation of people’s communes. Mao decreed increased efforts to multiply grain yields and bring industry to the countryside. Local officials were fearful of Anti-Rightist Campaigns and competed to fulfill or over-fulfill quotas based on Mao’s exaggerated claims, collecting “surpluses” that in fact did not exist and leaving farmers to starve. Higher officials did not dare to report the economic disaster caused by these policies, and national officials, blaming bad weather for the decline in food output, took little or no action. Millions of deaths took place in China during the Great Leap, with estimates ranging between 15 and 55 million, making the Great Chinese Famine the largest famine in human history.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

    Chief changes in the lives of rural Chinese people included the incremental introduction of mandatory agricultural collectivization. Private farming was prohibited, and those engaged in it were persecuted and labeled counter-revolutionaries. Restrictions on rural people were enforced through public struggle sessions and social pressure, although people also experienced forced labor.[8] Rural industrialization, while officially a priority of the campaign, saw “its development … aborted by the mistakes of the Great Leap Forward”.[9] The Great Leap was one of two periods between 1953 and 1976 in which China’s economy shrank.[10] Economist Dwight Perkins argues that “enormous amounts of investment produced only modest increases in production or none at all. … In short, the Great Leap was a very expensive disaster”.[11]

    In 1959, Mao Zedong ceded day-to-day leadership to pragmatic moderates like Liu Shaoqi and Deng Xiaoping and the CCP studied the damage done at conferences in 1960 and 1962, especially at the “Seven Thousand Cadres Conference”. Mao did not retreat from his policies and instead blamed problems on bad implementation and “rightists” for opposing him. He initiated the Socialist Education Movement in 1963 and the Cultural Revolution in 1966 in order to remove opposition and re-consolidate his power. In addition, dozens of dams constructed in Zhumadian, Henan during the Great Leap Forward collapsed in 1975 (under the influence of Typhoon Nina) and resulted in the 1975 Banqiao Dam failure, with an estimated death toll between tens of thousands to 240,000.[12][13]
