        Where’s Dan Dare when you need him? Let me enlighten you and bring joy.
        Dan Dare is now married to Digby and they have a super bijou residence in Islington. Both I’m delighted to say are vegan. They both regret their imperialistic years working for The Eagle comic, but have moved on thanks to counselling and therapy workshops.

          Ha ha ha!

          I have all ‘The Eagle’ magazines on DVD, and I’ve been trying to find the series when Digby had to prove that all he ever thought about was ‘food’!

          I think it was The Mekon who wired him up somewhere or other to see if he was lying!

          Fabulous stuff – I think it came out around the time the BBC ran something like ‘Journey into space’ and us boys just lapped it all up! But then the BBC did real programmes, not dross.

          Luckily I’ll never have to make a ‘Journey into London ever again’!

            And on the back there was the story of St Paul. A friend of mine, at a college where the JCR subscribed to the Eagle, had to write in the Suggestions Book: “I ask that our subscription to the Eagle be cancelled as it no longer has both Dan Dare on the front and St Paul on the back. (signed) Religious Spaceman.”

          Dover,
          It’s my sad duty to inform that something like this already exists (okay, not the gay stuff).
          “Dare” from 1991, by Glaswegian writer Grant Morrison and illustrator Rian Hughes, in which Dan Dare is a murderer of Treen children.
          image-1.png?ssl=1
          From Wikipedia:
          “In 1990, a strip entitled Dare, written by Grant Morrison and drawn by Rian Hughes, was serialised in Revolver. It presented bleak and cynical characters and was a not-too-subtle satire of 1980s British politics, from the perspective of the defeated left wing of the Labour Party. Spacefleet had been privatised, the Treens were subjected to racist abuse in urban ghettos, Digby was unemployed, Professor Peabody committed suicide, and Dare’s mentor Sir Hubert Guest betrayed Dare to the Mekon and his quisling British Prime Minister, Gloria Monday (whose appearance and demeanour appear modelled on Margaret Thatcher). Ultimately, Dare destroys London, the Mekon and himself through a smuggled nuclear weapon. The last episode appeared in Crisis, following Revolver’s cancellation. This version was not popular.”

          The original Dan Dare comic stories are unequalled, as shown by the fact that they are still reprinted 70 years after their creation.
          I would recommend to anybody Alastair Crompton’s “The Man Who Drew Tomorrow: How Frank Hampson created Dan Dare, the world’s best comic strip.” It’s a glimpse into another era when even people who made comics were capable of true greatness.

      Sadly NCBBC is correct, it is very likely that by the end of this century, if not well before, we will be white minority country. To those young liberals who think that this is not something to be feared , or even that it will a good thing, I say look at Africa or the Middle East and you see what is coming down the tracks for you. A heady mix of religious intolerance , industrial scale corruption , violence as a way of life , no law and order and real racism where you will be the victim of a lot worse than being called a Brit!
      I’m afraid that in the last thirty or so years society has lost respect for the civilisation that they were born into. Perhaps they think that the freedom , wealth and continued progress which they enjoy in the West is the permanent default setting for humanity and doesn’t require to be protected from outside forces . The shock realisation that is a very unusual and fragile state will come too late for them to recover it.
      The clock is indeed at One Minute to Midnight but not because of climate change!

        Bangladesh: After Muslim attacks, Christians join Hindus and Buddhists in call for protection of non-Muslims

        https://www.jihadwatch.org/2021/11/bangladesh-after-muslim-attacks-christians-join-hindus-and-buddhists-in-call-for-protection-of-non-muslims

        This is just one incident. The Muslim wortd is full of attacks on Christians. Jews were driven out from Islamic countries a long while back.

        As for non-religious people, who think they will be the last ones in the line, forget it. Atheists, therefore those who deny the existence of God, are regarded as voluntarily evil. They will be the first, along with Buddhists ( Burma knows its history and the the tragic history of Buddhism in Afghanistan and India, visited on them by Islamic invaders). Then the idol worshippers – Hindus. Etc.

        For the moment Islamic global terror is in abeyance as the West has overwhelming power. But once Islam takes over the West, we will begin to understand why Hungary etal don’t want Muslim immigrants, migrants or asylum seekers.

        And here we are wilfully blind. We make big noise over a likely trumped up outrage of one Muslim but ignore the cries of tens of thousands of girls gang raped by Muslims over decades. And I mean deliberately blind.

      The Big Truth: Election 2020 Really Was Rigged

      Mollie Hemingway has written a blockbuster book about all the strands of deception and falsehoods that converged to take down Donald Trump on Nov. 3 and 4 and beyond (and before), in her book: Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech and the Democrats Seized Our Elections (Regnery, 2021)

    I believe that our BBC will meet its end through feeding without reservation the Climate Change hoax-monster.

    Our BBC publicly announced their decision a few years ago that Climate Change was 100% fact and anybody who disagreed with this would not be allowed airtime. This has resulted in the ridiculous farce of two ‘experts’ agreeing with each other.

    The hoax is politically driven by the Left/BBC with the intention of destroying capitalism and democracy. I know of nobody in the real world who supports climate change and who is also pro Brexit.

    A referendum would destroy the climate change fanatics. (Based upon the Brexit experience, the result would of course be blocked all the way by our democratic Parliament for years and years 🙁 )

      I agree that the BBC sees supporting the climate change lunacy as simply a way to attack the right wing. The BBC demonstrate their hate for the right wing and their support for the left in almost everything they do. Odd for an organisation that rewards its star employees with eye watering remuneration on a scale that could in no way be described as democratic.

      There will never be a referendum . The elite thought that they would frighten us into voting remain and still haven’t got over their loss of control of us plebs. They won’t allow to us the chance to decide our fate ever again. In effect we have been disenfranchised because the political parties which we have today agree on the two really big issues, migration and climate
      , both of which will massively impact our lives.
      However I do agree that once the true cost of net zero begins to hit ordinary folk in the pocket and they see their standard of living dropping year on year they will become increasingly restive. But how this anger and rejection of the political class and their elite backers plays out probably won’t be via the ballot box.

    As you can tell from my moniker, I come from up north, God’s country. I really believe Yorkshire Cricket shot itself in the foot, when it removed the stipulation that you had to be born in the County to represent it. Before someone says, yes but these dusky people were born in Yorkshire, I know, but all YCC had to do was say one had to be an indigenous Yorkshireman. Jobs a good un.

      What struck me at the time was his very strong sense of place, Yorkshire being his identity, a super local ‘nationalism’ that I had never seen before in the UK.

      Hard to believe that a dusky person, born in the ‘stable’ that is Yorkshire, could ever have that same intense connection.

    The underlying problem is that the Climate Change hypothesis made up by government faux “scientists”, at the behest of the government for political purposes, has been heavily promoted by the state funded BBC. It is lefty and requires state control of humans actions, and even thought. What could the BBC not like here.
    “Incestuous”, is what comes to mind.
    But apart from that, Climate Change hypothesis is crooked as it relies on government subsidy. And so does all that emanates from it – like Wind electricity generation. And this attack on the most efficient generation of heat, is again due to Climate Change nonsense. Trying to reduce % CO2 will fail, as most of it is produced naturally. Besides it will have no effect on temperature as CO2 is not significant enough. If the government knows this and still carries on its policy, then it it is doing it for political and taxation purposes and not for the planet.

    Even if it were doing it for the planet, surely it must know that China and India are not going to follow. And thats the end of that.
    Which bring us back to the option left – It is doing it for political purposes.

        Because personal transport means freedom. Freedom to go see who you like and when you like. When that is desroyed so will free speech. Why? Becaues free speech requires people to get together to share views and act.

        One cant do that if one has to bike. Motorised traffic will be available only to the police — the controlling arm of the state. Electricity will be rationed at your home via Smart meters.

        But surely our wonderful police, the envy of the world will not stoop to Staasi tactics. Well we know now that once the police are told, they will send SWAT teams in multiple squad cars, miles into the Derbyshire wilderness, to arrest a coupe talking to each other.

              I’m with you Seppers, there are a lot of real environmental issues (pollution, waste being dumped on ground and in rivers, building everywhere, Chinese eating rare animals, destruction of forests/wild spaces, population growth…), but I’m pretty sure ‘manmade global warming’ either isn’t one of them, or is vastly over exaggerated by hysterical, attention seeking cretins.

              One of the things I find particularly annoying is in all this self flagellation about ‘climate change’, most of the real issues seem to get brushed under the carpet.

              Is mass immigration to the UK damaging our local environment – yep!

              Is manufacturing everything in China (where there is no respect for the natural environment at all) and shipping it half way around the world really bad for the environment – I think it probably is?

              Are wind turbines, electric cars and heat pumps REALLY more environmentally friendly than what we currently have? – almost certainly not.

              Etc… it’s all just virtue signalling, fearmongering, and hypocrisy.

              In most cases, if you really look into it, the traditional ways of doing things were usually the most environmentally friendly, simply because in the past people couldn’t afford the waste and consumption most consider their ‘right’ now. Look at all the fuss about not being able to take two holidays abroad last year, or complaints about ‘not being able to feed themselves’ when they can’t afford Dominos pizzas 7 nights a week! My family have never had any of those things, and we haven’t suffered for it.

            Thank you for your response

            Climate Change is a natural phenomena, changing on a global scale. What Western governments have done is re-name AGW, man-made global warming , to man-made Climate Change.

            To see that both scams are the same, one notes that the changes required, and to be imposed on us, to ameliorate or stop Climate Change, are the same requirements to stop AGW.

            Transport is a separate issue. Transport systems depend on the size, wealth, weather conditions, population size and density, and other factors. Attempts for one size or even a couple of sizes to fit the general will fail.

    Did the racist BBC report it? Of course not.

        I agree with Nibor and Pug above. She has nothing to say except generalised rhetoric and nothing will ever be enough for her anyway. Her true function as a public figure is not really to lobby for solutions to the “climate crisis” but to personify a whole host of horrible adolescent traits – vanity, self-importance, crusading zeal, blind certainty, disrespect for elders. Children and youths with teenage angst, persecution complexes, catastrophist mindsets, nihilist outlooks and victim mentalities can then find a focus for their disaffection.

    It seems the Yorkshire Cricket calamity has achieved its objective. Appointing a new UK/Pakistani Chairman, I did wonder what it was all about being mostly sound and fury and signifying nothing!

    I have never seen such a weak claim achieve such a massive result. It must be cheering to the heart of all professional grudge merchants. Certainly better and more profitable than crash for cash!

    High time a lot of jelly belly’s out there grew some balls and said no to this victim blackmail circus before it goes mainstream.

    On the other hand I can’t stand cricket or cricketers so not over-bothered really. They have played right into the hands of the extortionists so good luck to them.

        All ads these days have Black actors. Department stores and outlets that sell clothes, in store and the web, are Black.

        The question then came to me is how if one is White, Asian or Chinese to judge if the colour of the clothing will suit her or his complexion.

        This is not just racist but downright stupid.

    There’s a Men’s Cricket T20 World Cup taking place at the moment, but of the 14 articles on the cricket page of the Beeb’s webshite, today’s 2 matches only warrant being numbers 4 and 6 through 8.

    The first 3, rather depressingly, are all the Yorkshire non-story about a former club captain (what racism!) – followed by articles 5, 9, 10 and 13.

    There’s also an article in the Newsbeat section entitled Azeem Rafiq : ‘Racist language isn’t friendly banter,’ say British-Pakistanis. The pandering piece ends with a laughable quote from a 23-year-old called Kamran – “Until we acknowledge there’s a problem, people will push it under the carpet.”

    Is he talking about racism in Yorkshire cricket or Pakistani grooming gangs raping white children? I know which one the Beeb see’s as more important judging by the amount of articles today.

    I’ve learned some new terminology from the BBC over the past week .

    DARK MONEY = money freely given by any organisation the BBC doesn’t like to any other organisation the BBC doesn’t like . Not necessarily hidden , it just has to be money not spent the way the BBC would like it to be .

    CONTRIBUTIONS = money that may or may not be surreptitiously transferred from BBC approved organisations to other BBC approved organisations . Or money duped out of halfwits given to favoured causes eg : Conservatives giving money to Hope Not Hate.

    TAXES = these are never wrong and can be dressed up for what they think is the common good and even given different names . The telly tax being an example , call it a licence fee . Others are green taxes , congestion charges , rates , community charge , green levy even victim surcharge .

      ‘Dark Money’ Nibor? You’ve been listening to the appallingly one-sided and very toxic ‘climategate’ programme which is highly, highly partisan and biased….the emails were ‘stolen’ or ‘hacked’ and it was a ‘crime’…not leaked, not a whistle-blower, not someone looking for transparency and truth.

      The BBC is broadcasting total propaganda on behalf of Philip Jones and the climate lobbyists…no attempt to investigate the truth revealed by the emails…then again there never was any attempt by the BBC to examine them at the time…it was always a terrible crime by sinister climate deniers funded by ‘dark money’.

      Durham’s investigation is moving at the speed of a glacier, but is seemingly thorough at least.

      He was appointed as a special prosecutor, and as such can only be removed by the attorney general. But if the AG actually does this, the sky tends to fall in, as happened over Watergate. So in practice he is independent, and his inquiry can go wherever the evidence takes him. This is why presidents are usually very reluctant to appoint special prosecutors.

      In this case, all the evidence seems to point towards a corrupt effort by the Democrats and the FBI to smear and destroy President Trump. It should lead to the very top of the FBI and the Democrat Party, and yes, Hillary, this means you. We can only hope Durham holds his nerve and doesn’t get killed in a “mugging” or “hunting accident”.

    Hmmmm…how’s Tim Davie’s clampdown on BBC people campaigning and indulging in partisan statements?

    How is it that David Attenborough can say the most extreme things about climate change and, instead of being told to shut up, is promoted by the BBC and encouraged to keep making such statements?

    Oh hang on…

    ‘The director-general of the BBC has said the science of climate change is “no longer politically controversial” and a pledge to increase coverage of the topic would not affect the broadcaster’s impartiality. ‘

    I guess on some subjects impartiality is no longer an issue…but even so why are BBC presenters allowed to take part in what is clearly a political campaign?

    And what contact has the BBC had with the government to agree on their climate broadcasting strategy?….

    Click to access Broadcasters-Report.pdf

    ‘The Power of TV: Nudging Viewers to Decarbonise their Lifestyles’

    ‘Societal-level behaviour change is needed to tackle climate change….Broadcast organisations and content creators therefore have a unique opportunity to make a difference for the planet. Through the programs that they produce, the characters that they create, the plot-lines that they develop, and the adverts that they broadcast, content creators have the potential to have a far-reaching impact on the knowledge, attitudes and behaviours of citizens, and to spark conversations in boardrooms and political arenas alike. They are also pivotally placed to help people sift through the maze of choices and claims, to adopt behaviours – and products – that can get us to a greener future.’

    Is it not extraordinarily sinister that the ‘independent’ BBC [and other broadcasters such as Sky] are working hand in hand with the government to promote specific policies….and who can doubt that this was the case not just for climate chnage but also in how the BBC reported lockdown and helped spread the fear to ensure compliance.

    Be scared, very scared when the media joins up with the government…where is that much boasted of independence and ‘holding of Power to account’?

      1. Racists – as the dislike and even hate some races and love some.

      2. Liars – through the scam of AGW and now Climate Change, they have destroyed the good reputation of science in general

      3. Marxists- They believe in the lifestyle and philosophy of thinking that money grows on trees.

      4. Anti-Semitism. They have been that since it became clear that Israel was a shining example of a free state.

Not your fault..nope, not at all.

    If you want a perfect example for the BBC narrative on race, black failure and ‘systemic bigotry’, and Black whining, you couldn’t find a better one than this….

    https://play.acast.com/s/fourthought/urn%3Abbc%3Apodcast%3Am000y6n4

    ‘The Tyranny of Positivity’

    ‘Sian Ejiwunmi-Le Berre argues against the tyranny of positivity which forms part of a culture of “performative wellness”, which she says sees illness as a form of personal failure. When extrapolated to other aspects of human life, this attitude is a “poison to society”.’

    It is one long whinge by a Black who turns a story about being fobbed off by doctors [who here hasn’t been fobbed off by doctors?] into a classic run down of the BBC narrative of race in Britain. She levers in every moan and whine that is ever uttered on the BBC to explain how blacks can never succeed in racist and nasty Britain and how systemic bigotry underlies all their suffering….from menial jobs to death in childbirth to police ethnic cleansing blacks…of course blacks resist arrest…because they are being arrested by people who kill blacks!…proven when the officer shoots the person [violently] resisting arrest.

    This Forethought podcast is a classic of its kind, embodying every prejudice the BBC indulges in to suggest Blacks are eternal victims who can never succeed….so don’t be positive Blacks…be negative, think negative, think victim…think…only…er…that the liberal whitey can save me….lol.
    It even manages to squeeze in ‘slavery’…apparently those who think positively can only succeed because they exploit and rise on the backs of the menial workers…slaves.

    Positive thinking is fascism…a terrorism…slavery…a poison in society.

    Good old BBC….always ready to spread its own knd of poison

    Better off listening to this guy…hard work, ambition and that poisonous positive thinking will help you succeed.

    Questions for the bbc and msm:

    Where is the endless handwringing about pakistani peado rape gangs in every community they infest in the UK ? did their victims “cry” as they were racially abused as they were raped, which they were ?

    are those tears less important than those of a grown man called a silly word that is nothing more than a convenient contraction of a 4 syllable word?

    Is that crime, still being widely committed, of no importance ? or less important than someone being called a “bad word” ?

    If so, please expain why, or just explain why you are all morons yet still in employment

    And all the rapists families and freinds knew what was going on, one 12 year old victim was “given” to a rapists 16 year old son as a birthday present. Should they also be prosecuted for aiding and abetting ?

    Why is it not also prosecuted as racially aggravated as the victims have stated they were racially abused ?

    why, when some were deported are they still here ?

    Even the mail online has three non stories about this stupid cricket thing where commments are moderated in advance. (what are they afraid of ? UK residents opinions on this subject ?)

    Where is the outrage at “prince” Harry using the same word ?

    rape gangs must be high fiving eachother as they get another layer of protection for their activities from the “kaffirs” (another racist word that is allowed)

    When will rappers be prosecuted for using the N word in their lyrics ?

    As above, the msm is depressing in the extreme, as an antidote, this, in my inbox recently, made me smile:

    A father and daughter were walking through the park when a beautiful butterfly flies past them. The little girl chases after it and rather than admiring its beauty, stomps on it killing it instantly. The father is horrified and says, ” That was a terrible thing to do, and as a punishment, you shall have no butter for a week.” When they get home there is a honey bee buzzing around the kitchen trying to escape. Before father can stop her, the girl picks up a wooden spoon and squashes the bee. Father is again horrified at what he has just seen his daughter do and tells her that killing a honey bee is very naughty and as a punishment, she shall have no honey for a week. Just at that moment Mother comes up the cellar steps into the kitchen and says.” You must get that cellar fumigated, I just killed a cockroach.”

    The little girl turns to her father and says. “ Who’s going to tell her, you or me?”

    Just recently, while The Senora is still away, I’ve been tuning in to night time LBC.

    The main reason is that down here in leafy Kent, I must have the only DAB wireless in the world that only picks up Radio5 Live and very lttle else (except some screaming rap rubbish), but a daughter gave me her old iPhone, and I can listen all night if I want to – without earphones!

    What a marvellous change it has been to tune into Clive Bull, Steve Allen and Ian Payne for great chat, loads of light humour and fun, and a lively presentation, totally free of the drone of some of the daytime presenters!

    The BBC love the victim stories, always call their mates on phone-ins, and have become so stale and dreary that apart from the odd ear’ole to Dotun (when he’s joined by Mark Webster or Jonathan Wingate) for old time’s sake, I’ll probably never listen to them again! I certainly never watch the BBC News, unless it’s news of our Queen.

    What a difference commercial restraints and opportunities make when broadcast companies have to actually work to get listeners, not sit back after collecting eye-watering tax payments and spout continuous leftie bias, and inconclusive rubbish about ‘victims’ and ‘climaaaaaaaate’!

    And if anyone’s been listening to Ian Payne just now, ‘Morning, my Lovely, how’s my Sweetheart today? C’mon, give us a hug Darling’!

    Several years ago, someone said something to a person at Yorkshire Country Cricket Ckub. It appears the Paki word was used.
    Many people who were in the past chastised in the achool yard for their height (‘lanky’) or hair colour (‘blondie’) must be bemused. We had a worker affectionately known as ‘darkie’. And he was white!

    But times have changed. And the gleam in the eye of BBC management, the salivating, the bare-faced eagerness to play the race card at every opportunity, is there for all to see

    In BBC Top Trumps, finding examples, any examples, of racism is even more important than climate change, judging by the news running order.

      Here’s a story about workplace “banter”. Many years ago I had a job which involved travelling to coal mines around the country, and working underground. For those uncertain of what coal is, it is the miracle fuel which will probably be providing all of our energy when the world comes to its senses.
      On one of my trips I was working with a guy I’d not met before, and I noticed that everyone referred to him as “Sooty”. I can’t remember his name but it was Bert Smith, or similar. Eventually I had to ask him to explain. He held up his left hand; he had lost three fingers in a coalface accident, leaving just the thumb and little finger. Hold your hand up with the three fingers held down if you need further explanation. He didn’t seen to mind the nickname and certainly didn’t bleat on about compensation. A different time, and it feels now like a different world.

          Hi Rob,
          Couple of things – firstly in those days there was a certain pride about working for a living and not playing the victim card at the first opportunity. It also was common practice for injured miners, and those coming up to retirement, to spend most of their time working on surface tasks or, if they were underground, given jobs away from the “front line” ((Like looking after me). These generations were built from a different mould, I think. In these “more caring” times, the management would be working out how to drive the injured unfortunate out of the industry and probably try to pin the blame on him. Back then, despite the image of the miners being on strike every verse end, the managers, certainly at colliery level, were respected by their men and looked after them in return.

            From letters in my local newspaper a couple of years ago:

            Our great men gone
            Did those men die in vain
            Did their families suffer so much pain, So that we in Britain who are so vain
            Allow this great country to go down the drain.

            Germany lost both the wars
            But now the EU they control,
            And to them our PM bent her knee And now we are no longer free.

            An army of immigrants are flooding in
            Followed by their kith and kin,
            And Britain will never be the same
            Though those men suffered so much pain.

            The British spirit seems to have gone
            And there is no one around to carry it on,
            The Brexit Party strive with all their might And I hope they will never give up the fight.

            We have had our backs to the wall before But where oh where are the men of yore, Just to think that they died in vain Should make us all suffer shame.

            We remember these men every year
            But all the good have gone I fear, We put on this facade
            And end it with a great parade.

            No men of stature are around
            To make us turn and stand our ground, Churchill was our last great man
            The one’s today are just a sham.

    Six people have been sentenced to jail. The BBC showed pictures.
    All of them had ‘darker skin tones’ but guess what? This provoked no comment at all from the BBC.

    In BBCland, a white person calling someone a Paki is far more important than a BAME person firing a gun.

    And that, dear readers, is the moral framework of our impartial state broadcaster.

    Anti-establishment…me sir?
    “It’s a couple of fingers in the direction of the establishment.”
    I’ll take some of that.

    And technological windows into our hearts

    As they used to say on old time TV magazine programmes as the opening shot supposedly caught presenters in the process of some activity – “…but more of that later…” Meanwhile, it’s all aboard the time machine protest bus over there at the Beeb.

    The British Transport Police (BTP) has apologised to the British African community for “systemic racism” and a corrupt officer in the 1970s

    Yorkshire County Cricket Club investigating after another ex-player alleges racial abuse… In the latest claims, the unnamed player said he faced “both blatant and sly” racist abuse at the club in the early 2000s

    Not that what we now view retrospectively as crimes don’t elicit present day punishments: ‘BBC drops Vaughan in cricket racism storm‘ – you see the BBC needs to look whiter than white when it comes to racism – well, that’s an awkward way of putting it, but you see what I mean. The BBC certainly intends to look less and less white in future: “We hope natural Afro hair TV advert is first of many” – that’s just the BBC eagerly reporting an impending Channel 4 advert but one would contend that the fact that this makes the news proves the point.

    Elsewhere in news of things that have actually happened recently in terms of protest: BBC: ‘Parliament Square protesters clash with police on Bonfire Night… Hundreds of anti-establishment activists have clashed with police in central London on Bonfire Night.

    Anti-establishment is a fascinating term employed there by the BBC. Because it tends to reinforce the fact that the likes of BLM statue topplers, Extintion Rebellion cosplayers (that’s fancy dress to you and me) and Insulate Britain road-sitters… are all protests promoting rather pro-establishment notions.

    The BBC could have called those: ‘Protesters wearing Guy Fawkes-style masks gathered at Trafalgar Square, with some throwing fireworks at police‘ – Anarchists, but significantly, they didn’t.

    A crowd watched an effigy of Prime Minister Boris Johnson being burned, with one member shouting “burn, Boris, burn”‘ – goodness me, they sound like they might even have been anti-Brexiteers.

    Judgeing by the pictures of fully riot-geared-up coppers, engaging rather forcefully with the protesters, the Met seem to have suddenly found their balls.

    The Metropolitan Police said on Twitter that a dispersal order was in place for “a number of areas” across Westminster, including Parliament Square‘ – because Twitter is exactly where we want see our police patrolling and pounding their beat (sarc)

    In a separate tweet, the Met said: “We have moved into the crowd to remove any fireworks and prevent people coming to harm.” – a pretty pro-active move and likely to spark (if you’ll excuse the bonfire night pun) a reaction… unlike Insulate Britain protests where our police move among protesters and politely ask whether they are comfortable and might like a nice cup of tea?

    One [protester], who gave his name only as Richard, from London, said the protest, which has taken place on 5 November for several years, was a “continuation” of the “anti-Covid” marches…”It’s a couple of fingers in the direction of the establishment.“‘

    Ahead of the protest, Deputy Assistant Commissioner Jane Connors said: “Groups of course have the right to protest. But I am particularly concerned that some groups are specifically intending to travel into London to deliberately cause violence and disorder including targeting police officers. This will not be tolerated and our policing plan has been developed with this potential risk in mind.”‘ – nice to know the cops had a pre-planned plan. One also notes our Jane fronting it up this time for our Cressida who was, presumably, otherwise engaged.

    Anyway, I thought we’d pretty much stamped out that bigoted English anti-Catholic bonfire night tradition and firework sales were now heavily restricted?

    Smoke alarm. Diwali fireworks push New Dehli pollution level off the scale‘ (FT) – oops!

    CO2 eh? Fossil fuels and all that, eh? ‘No 10 asks Qatar to be “gas supplier of last resort” in case of winter fuel crisis‘ (FT) – so Boris knows he’s been kidding us all along at Cop26 and realises we’ve landed ourselves with a looming heating crisis with all this green energy malarkey.

    Elsewhere on the BBC: ‘Metal detectorist finds small gold bible‘ – I should watch out for that… that’s how the Mormans got started.

    Here’s another cracker of hypocrisy from the BBC: ‘The way my boss monitored me at home was creepy‘ – how about police officers approaching people in the street and questioning their right to be there under Lockdon rules? How about the NHS track and trace app? How about Capita going after non-Licence Payers and attempting to catch them watching live TV broadcasts?

    “It was creepy,” says Chris [Chris’s real name has been changed for this article] “One of my managers was watching people’s personal computers to monitor what we were doing at home – all the time, not just when we were working. It was a bizarre way to carry on”

    Wecome to the new normal, mate.

    Coincidentally, on the theme of the home: ‘Calls for new investigation into PM’s flat‘ (Guardian)

    Luckily, I hear Carrie leaves her laptop on and we’re picking up some images from her web cam which she forgot to cover over with gaffa tape. Hopefully we’ll soon catch audio of Boris making some gaffe. Boris is entering the flat now… wow, this is much better than the previous expose of the neighbour with a glass to the wall at Boris’s old gaff. “What ho, Caz, just back from bloody Glasgow! What’s cooking? Not wreched veggie burgers again! Forget food, get yourself on that expensive sofa and prepare to repel boarders…”

    I think we’d best cut the live feed right there.

    Basically this BBC article is very likely taken pretty much cut and paste from a trades union PR tip (did you enjoy my amatuer journalistic qualifications there? I do bore of the everyday coulds and mays and mights): ‘The trade union Prospect is calling for stronger regulation of the use of monitoring technology by employers

    “New technology allows employers to have a constant window into their employees’ homes, and the use of the technology is largely unregulated by government.”‘ – well quite. And we can presumably look forward to the government eagerly regulating all technonlogical windows into our homes.

    It was Queen Elizabeth I who said she had no wish to “make windows into men’s souls” However, her reign saw the consolidation of the Protestant reforms instituted by her father’s Reformation and an intensification of the persecusion of England’s Catholic population. Protestantism – which we’ll pun into the word Protest – had become the ruling idealogy, busily persecuting the former conservatism.

    There’s yer thought for the day after Guy Fawkes night.

    BBC Online News:

    ‘Parents cry because they can’t provide food’

    “After a tough childhood and a brief spell of homelessness, Steve’s no stranger to deprivation himself.”

    “But six years ago he started making deliveries of food and clothing in his spare time to those who needed it, using the living room of his mother’s house as a base for what became “Barty’s Community Foodbank”.

    “I was seeing families here crying, I was seeing children really, really struggling. These are people who are working, who have been on furlough. Gas is going up, food is going up, everything is going up, but their wages aren’t going up.

    “I struggle myself and all my friends are roofers, they’re bricklayers, they work all week and still can’t afford food.”

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-59158118

    This BBC feature is straight out of the Socialist Workers Handbook.

    They even contrive a meeting and hand-shake between our BBC hero and a Pakistani businessman to tick a box.

    I bet our hero supplies more than ‘food’ to the ‘needy’.

    I wrote about the Yorkshire “racist” cricket banter late on the midweek board last night. Comparing the attitude of the BBC towards the Yorkshire Pakastini grooming , raping gangs , and
    the lack of interest in them by the BBC.
    But maybe the most relevant aspect of my contribution was the
    way that the BBC has become a latter day McCarthyism outfit.
    Not against Communism. But anything that is male, pale and
    and what they consider stale.
    This is lead by BIG BROTHER from the diversity department.
    And before long he, she, or it , will see how the great majority
    of the country will turn on this warped individual and his, hers or
    it’s sycophants as the folk in the USA turned on McCarthy in
    the early fifties. By the way AND I reiterate again from last night.
    BIG BROTHER at the BBC how about the racist Anti-Semitic
    chanting by the West Ham “supporters” as an orthodox Jew
    was walking to his seat on the plane? Wrong kind of racism , to
    be featured on BBC TV news or not even the London Programme BIG
    BROTHER? Animal Farm springs to mind!!!

      #1 Yorkshire girls need to be safe from grooming gangs
      #2 Non-white cricketers need to be treated with the same equality of opportunity as everyone else

      That second cause probably has a massive PR industry driving it
      (like The guys behind Rashford’s accounts)
      … And the first cause doesn’t.

      Yorkshire cricket needed to demonstrate they were doing #2. I bet they were trying to do that, but had an element of clumsiness and a PR team that was cornershop when the other side had a massive slick operation.

    All mention of negative things about the government (and to be fair there are several) brings rapturous hilarity and applause.

    The tiny number of mentions of the opposition bring only a few titters.

      Austers laws states that in the West, a dysfunctional minority will be shown as intelligent, inventive and law abiding.

      The truly inventive and intelligent native will be shown as the reverse. A minority, Chinese or Indian male for instance, who is intelligent, inventive and law abiding does not fall into a category, so he will not be shown at all.

      If we then apply these two quite obvious dictums to advertising, and see what happens.

      That is, White men are responsible for the the only civilisation worth living.

      White men have created all great works in Mathematics, Engineering, Physics, medicine, art and music. In fact they have created it, where none existed.

      I’m not positing that White men are all the above. I’m merely applying Auster’s laws.

      Asian men are even more invisible in ads, then by Austers law, they too must be particularly intelligent.

      African men, a minority, are shown to be highly intelligent, inventive and law abiding, then the reality is opposite.

      Now does Auster’s hypothesis generally predict the reality?

        On that note anybody seen the new M&S Christmas advert? The family is exactly what PJW has just discussed! The M&S logo does make a very brief appearance blink and you miss it but nevermind that’s not what’s being sold here!

    Bloody Anti-Vaxxers! What is it with them? Why on Earth would Pharma companies want to prolong a pandemic just for a few (well, maybe more than a few) billion dollars extra profit? And why would politicians, supported by the BBC, want to facilitate this just for a few measly million pounds for their friends and families and the odd book deal and after-dinner speeches contracts for themselves.

    Climate-Change Deniers will be saying next that university chancellors are influenced by contributions from Soros, Gates and the WEF and would require their Research Departments to produce partisan reports!
