Start the week 8 November 2021

News paper reports suggest the BBC licence tax is to be frozen for the next 2 years to help with ‘cost of living pressures . Then there will be a further review in the run up to the end of the Charter in 2027 .
That is years of anti British propaganda .Much much too long .

    Migrants stuck between EU-poland and non-EU, russia-ally, Belarus, who also does not want them.

    This is the type of story on which the BBC is simply unable to report a clearly on, due to its bias and loyalties. Reading the article raises more questions than it answers:

    luring migrants with the false promise of easy entry to the EU as part of an “inhuman, gangster-style approach”. — This quote is either unattributed or is attributed to the European Commission. If the EC did say this, then anything else it said seems to be not included. It also gives no detail on how the migrants were ‘lured’

    Upon arrival they are being pushed to the border and forced to make an illegal entry into the European Union. — it remains unclear whether/how Belarus really did ‘lure’ the migrants. It is also unclear what is happening here. Seems as though the migrants were denied entry. Many readers would agree with this action. No-one is “forcing” illegal entry to be made. They could go back to where they came from (presumably the Ukraine or Russia; or their home country)

    Activists say the migrants are being used as pawns in a political game between non-EU Belarus and its neighbours — what political game? What does Belarus want and how will this get them want they want?

    Germany on Tuesday urged the EU to “take action” to help Poland secure its borders. Lithuania has also moved troops to its border with Belarus to prepare for a possible influx of migrants. — Germany, Poland and Lithuiania are all taking steps to stop migrants entering their countries/the EU. is the BBC reluctant to admit to this, and therefore paints Belarus as the unfavourable actor?

    He said Monday’s move to the border post was planned on social media by the migrants themselves, but suggested Belarus was pushing them. — A migrants brother says that the migrants (replete with smartphones!) planned the move but Belarus ‘pushed them’ how did they puch them? How does the brother know this?

    UN refugee agency spokesperson Shabia Mantoo said that it was very worried by the latest scenes: “Using refugees, asylum seekers and migrants to achieve political ends is unacceptable and must stop.” — The people in question are ‘migrants’. The inclusion of this quotes seeks to conflate refugees/asylum seekers/migrants as ‘the same thing’ thus confusing the reader.

    As long as you understand that Belarus = bad and the EU coutries = less bad/good then you have understood the article as it was intended.

      Least we forget how it all works … videos, words, pictures … you don’t get to choose the arrangement …

      Chaos as police stop Hungary migrant train – Gavin Hewitt – BBC -Sep 2015 @53s
      “… the a really distressing incident happened. A women who was carrying a small baby began crying for help (photo of lady carrying baby). One of her companions tried to help her (photo of man with women on track, riot police reaching towards them) Somehow there became a push and a shove with the police. She ended up on the railway lines (by the male refugee dragging her and the baby to the floor, but this is not said) with the riot police trying to pull her back, and this of course inflamed all the other people…”
      -Gavin Hewitt – Sep 2015

      Watch the video and the male refugee (companion trying to help?) drags the women and baby to the floor, by force.

      Even the Mirror (03Sept2015) says “… this refugee couple cradle their tiny baby, after throwing themselves (NO! Male refugee drags women and baby onto train tracks) on train tracks as police try to take them to migrant camps in Hungary”

      Gets better. Two days (05Sept2015) later the Mirror then report it as
      “Refugee who dragged pregnant wife and baby son onto train track did it because ‘death would be better’”

      1. BBC Version uses words and pictures to hide the video version
      2. The Mirror shows the video but uses words to tell a different version

      Can I suggest a little story – “Male refugee forces pregnant women refugee holding child down onto a train track, police drag him away for her safety? Riot police then lift women with child off track with tender arms.”

    I first came across Ivermectin for use in the treatment of Covid 19 sometime in April/May 2020 and studying the literature and informatio, I was convinced of its efficacy. Its estimated that one Ivermectin tablet can be purchased for about 5 US Cents so any spread of the use of the drug will be resisted by large Pharma. Acting for big Pharma, the WHO et al (no doubt including NICE) has resisted approving Ivermectin for use with Covid. Now, overwhelming evidence proves otherwise and the professional murderers will be proven wrong. Stick with this video until the end:

    BBC Look North this lunchtime
    More outrageous bias from ‘The world’s most trusted broadcaster’
    The lead story was that Drax is going to stop burning coal completely, and will only burn wood chip. Hurrah! The world is saved! Big smiles from the presenter and the reporter; you’d think it was VE Day – except neither of them would know what that was. They pretended to consider the holes in this greeny narrative, but of course it was a sham. They only found a few tiny holes; ones that could easily be darned apparently – they didn’t discover the massive unfixable voids in the logic of the whole crazy idea.
    The report was nothing more than a press release for the Green Party.
    They wheeled on a guy in a Drax hard hat (smart suit + hard hat = voice of authority?), who said, deadpan, that the woodchip was all made from waste wood, and if woodchip wasn’t burnt at Drax it would be burnt in America, where it comes from. This would ‘release CO2 into the atmosphere.’ Err, that’s what’s happens when it’s burnt at Drax! In any case, more and more stories are coming from the US suggesting that it isn’t 100% scrap wood at all.
    There was no mention of the CO2 produced when the woodchip is transported by truck, ship, and train to Drax.
    Drax is, apparently, the UK’s biggest CO2 emitter. The green concept is that these emissions don’t matter, because for every tree burnt another one is planted, and that tree will absorb CO2. Two snags: Trees absorb approximately the same amount of CO2 as the green pasture or crop that they replace, and it takes a tree thirty to fifty years to absorb the amount of CO2 that burning it will release. Since the ‘climate emergency’ is allegedly upon us right now, that’s not much help is it?
    The burning of wood pellets causes Drax to emit particulate matter. Drax is one of the top five emitters of PM10 air pollution in Europe. I suppose if the world is going to end in a few years (© Prince Charles, God help us, our next monarch) everyone downwind of Drax might as well die of lung cancer.

    Is it April 1st?

    The pictures! Feels like I’m in another universe, or a monty python film. Just how bizarre does this situation have to get…not only are the vaccines pretty useless, and may even make you more prone to catching Covid, cheap meds have probably been avoided because they’re cheap and Trump promoted them.

    Clap for/from the brothel workers! Surprised Al Beeb aren’t featuring that story yet, it’s right up their street.


  15. TrickCyclist says:

    A longer version of the video on this BBC webpage was broadcast yesterday on the evening London News programme. I shied away from posting about it then as I was a bit bewildered by it.
    Clearly the general tenor of the video is that being anti-vaccine is wrong, but the whole presentation seems ‘off’ to me.
    Who is anti-vaxxer Michael Chaves? (He seems to hold a bunch of nutjob opinions about other subjects – if you wanted to discredit the anti-vaccine argument, you could hardly pick a better spokesman). Why are his protest group’s placards so professional? Why do the ‘concerned dad’ and the two black schoolgirls seem so well coached?
    I suspect many who contribute to this site would find these questions very easy to answer.
    In the studio yesterday, they followed up with a Q&A, supposedly from viewers. One said he was recovering from Covid, was it safe to get the booster jab?
    Really? I’m double jabbed, if I had still caught the virus nothing would discourage me more from seeking the booster!
    I couldn’t help feeling we are being openly trolled, and that the BBC doesn’t even care that we know.


    • Up2snuff says:

      TC, just read your post. It depends on the vaccine but one of the ones authorised for use and available in the UK came with the warning: do not take if you have had Covid.


    • Thoughtful says:

      You need to read up a bit more TC and stop swallowing the fake news.
      The ‘vaccine’ (which isn’t a vaccine) will reduce the symptoms should you catch covid, and that’s all it will do – nothing else and even Boris the bottler has confirmed that in a press conference.

      In fact new scientific evidence is coming to light which suggests that being jabbed might actually make you even more susceptable to contracting covid than if you weren’t.

      This Israeli study showed that contracting Covid gave people 27 times greater immunity than the so called ‘vaccine’ and is what herd immunity is all about.

      What is the point of depriving someone who might need it of a booster jab when you don’t need it? That’s just plain selfish!

      I contracted covid before the medical profession knew what it was. We now know it was released from the Wuhan Lab sometime aroung July or August of 2019 and that the Chinese government took action September 12th 2019.

      To make yourself as safe as it is possible to be, contract the virus, recover, and then expose yourself to it as many times as you can. I know I’ve had subsequent infections of something because I can feel the effects for about 6 hours before they wear off. This strengthens the immune system and prevents it forgetting the virus code.


      • Sick of it all says:

        I had a decent dose of Covid for three weeks in March of 2020, paramedics called, the full works. Since August of this year when the restrictions eased I haven’t worn a mask either to commute on the Tube/Overground, at work where I am exposed to the general public throughout the day or in any other public space such as shops or bars. That’s four months completely maskless and unvaccinated.

        I haven’t had even a sniff of a problem.


        • Thoughtful says:

          If you do contract something you are immune to you’ll probably just feel a bit run down or drained for a few hours as your immune system kicks into producing the cells which kill the virus, then you should feel A OK again.


      • TrickCyclist says:

        As I’m currently carer for my parents (one a heart attack survivor, one with COPD, both in their 80s), I’m afraid going out and deliberately trying to contract the virus isn’t really an option for me.


        • Fedup2 says:

          Trick – my sympathies – I’ve been there – done that . I know how tough it is and there are plenty of posters who have the experience .

          The covid adds that extra stress but I reckon good hygiene and ventilation is the key . It’s a pity the world class NHS didn’t do that for the 20000 plus it killed ….

    Tory Corruption screams the media and yet they completely ignore the Labour corruption on flagrant display.

    Claudia Webb ex Labour MP found guilty in a disgraceful display of race baiting has failed as yet to resign her seat, just as previous criminal Black Labour MP Fiona Onassanye did.

    Labour should of course be pushing for a recall notice, but as yet there are not, and there’s a reason. They are scared of what will happen if they do.

    In an act of stunning incomepence and cowardice they failed to expel Keith Vaz from the Labour party despite the numerous ‘incidents’ for which he was suspended and the Daily Telegraph published an article “Why is Keith Vaz still in Parliament” And suggesting the fact he was, showed something was deeply broken in British politics.

    Vaz returning would be a major embarassment to the Labour party no wonder they don’t want to talk about it.

    • MarkyMark says:

      The word ‘democracy’ has its origins in the Greek language. It combines two shorter words: ‘demos’ meaning whole citizen living within a particular city-state and ‘kratos’ meaning power or rule. … A belief in shared power: based on a suspicion of concentrated power (whether by individuals, groups or governments).

      Unable to silence Western critics, Lysenko tried to eliminate all dissent within the Soviet Union. Scientists who refused to renounce genetics found themselves at the mercy of the secret police. The lucky ones simply got dismissed from their posts and were left destitute. Hundreds if not thousands of others were rounded up and dumped into prisons or psychiatric hospitals. Several were sentenced to death as enemies of the state or starved in their jail cells (most notably the botanist Nikolai Vavilov).[4] Before the 1930s, the Soviet Union had a strong genetics community. Lysenko gutted it, and by some accounts set Russian biology and agronomy back a half-century.[4] Lysenko’s work was eventually recognized as fraudulent, but not before he had wrecked the lives of many and destroyed the reputation of Russian biology.[18]

    • BigBrotherCorporation says:

      Edward Colston, contemporary of Samuel Pepys, but unlike Pepys who doesn’t appear to have groomed and raped underage girls?

      He was a major shareholder in the Royal African Company (founded by the ‘Party King’ Charles II) for some years, which among other commodities, traded slaves bought in West Africa to the Americas. In the 17th Century, slaves were considered just another commodity like: sugar, tobacco, ivory, opium… trading in them was not considered ‘immoral’ like in the Victorian era, Colston wasn’t some kind of ‘criminal’, or ‘pariah’ because of it.

      Did he ever set foot on a ship? Possibly in London’s docks, briefly, but he never seems to have sailed in one, ‘gentlemen’ like him didn’t go on dangerous trading voyages in his era, in fact as an adult he probably never left London.

      Did he ever meet a black person? Possibly not, and if he did they would have been one of those well fed, well dressed individuals kept by wealthy people as a kind of ‘novelty’ to show off, he almost certainly never encountered a slave in manacles, saw a slave auction, or visited a plantation to witness them working.

      Did he have any idea what life was like for slaves? Almost certainly not, and like many of his era he presumably thought of black Africans as ‘animals’, rather than human beings anyway.

      The other side of the story is that he did give much of his vast personal wealth away to poor people later in life. The statue and everything else named after him were supposed to commemorate his donations, particularly to help the poor of Bristol, many tens of thousands of whom have been black over the centuries, and almost certainly a greater number than the slaves he was involved in the transportation of.

      How can you apply 21st Century notions of ‘right and wrong’ to a 17th Century person? How many 17th Century West Africans were cruel slavers? Cannibals? Brutal warlords? Witchdoctors who murdered children for ‘medicine’?

      Not sure what erasing his name does either, it doesn’t fix anything, and just conceals an important, if unpleasant part of everyone’s (black and white) history, so it will be forgotten. Is that the real aim?

      The Telford child sexual exploitation scandal is an ongoing scandal in the United Kingdom. Originally, a group of men were convicted of grooming local children for sex between 2007 and 2009 in Telford in the English county of Shropshire.[1][2][3] While media reports had suggested 100 or more girls had been affected[4] and around 200 perpetrators were suspected,[5] the Sunday Mirror reported in March 2018 that up to 1,000 girls may have been abused, with some even murdered, in incidents dating back to the 1970s.[6]

      According to the Home Office, as of 2015, Telford had the highest rate of sex crimes against children of any city in the United Kingdom.[7] Telford has a population of just under 170,000 people.[8]

    Some stories get the “report once and bury” treatment
    Other favoured agendas get “the multiple bits of the cherry” treatment

    We know the Tuvalu COP26 stunt was on Friday morning
    but 5 days later Reuters just put out a flurry of tweets about it.

    Boris says we have a functioning Government ….

    Does the department know Halloween was ten days ago?

    The event, taking place during working hours a week on Thursday, will be open to all DWP and Civil Service colleagues. Any colleagues who have ever wanted to ask questions of a witch are encouraged to attend…

    Any loons who can’t attend the 18th – do not fret. Two days prior, next Tuesday, the department is hosting a “Bitesize session to being a pagan“ – perfect timing ahead of Christmas. Guido can’t for the life of him spot any events scheduled about getting on with the job they’re paid to do…

    ‘Duchess of Sussex weighed up calling father ‘daddy”

    ‘The Duchess of Sussex questioned whether she should call her father “daddy” in a letter and whether it would “pull at the heartstrings” if leaked, the Court of Appeal has heard.’

    Terrifying, and not just the photo.

    2008 … A February 2008 Freedom of Information Act request for the release of details of MPs’ expenses claims was allowed by an Information Tribunal but challenged by the House of Commons Authorities on the grounds that it was “unlawfully intrusive”.[2] In May 2008 the High Court (England and Wales) ruled in favour of releasing the information.[3][4] In April 2009 the House of Commons authorities announced that publication of expenses, with certain information deemed “sensitive” removed,[5] would be made in July 2009.[6] But before this could take place the expenses records and documentation were leaked to The Daily Telegraph newspaper, which began publishing details in daily instalments from 8 May 2009.

    Douglas Hogg – who repaid £2,200 apparently claimed for clearing a moat at his country estate – says he will not fight the next election.

    In January 2009 Harriet Harman, Leader of the House of Commons, tabled a motion which would exempt MPs’ expenses from being disclosed under a Freedom of Information request, in order to prevent any further disclosure of information.
