    Time to remember the Queen in your prayers as she remembers the fallen of two World Wars on Sunday.

    TOADY this morning seemed to running some ‘interference’ after the ‘Tory sleaze’ and ‘Corrupt Government’ propaganda every day this week so far. Why? They appeared to be biting the hand that feeds them at the BBC giving prominence to an attack on John Lewis/Waitrose*. The BBC appeared to be totally ignorant of the way advertising and advertising agencies work. Am sure that is not actually true.

    You know you can trust the BBC … :
    1. To come up with something very dodgy as a news item, and,
    2. to use it as a diversion or to make themselves appear neutral and unbiased.

    (* a lot of Beeboids write for the Waitrose freebie paper/magazine. I’m sure they don’t do it for free, these ‘second jobs’. In one copy I picked one time, all the freelance contributions were from currently employed Beeboids!)

    I have watched a few episodes of the new Amazon TV show ‘Invasion’ which had the potential to be a really memorable SciFi series.
    With a $200 million budget it should have been really special, with respected directors too.

    But the show is dull, plodding, humourless, sterile, full of all the woke tropes now become so tiresome White bullies Black saviours, Gay scenes, and not even a sign of an alien after three long boring episodes.

    The directors complaining of being straightjacketed into restrictions Apple laid down which made making an entertaining show impossible.

    Now being panned by the critics as not even worth watching it really is an example of go woke go broke in action.

    Of course Apple could write off $200 million as pocket change but that’s not the point if they want their TV venture to succeed.

      “white bullies, black saviours”

      thats a laugh, worked in a few places and the worst I have witnessed, many trimes, especially in local government where they are fireproof, are afro carribean females without a doubt, aggressive and argumenatative, last one used to turn up when she wanted, normally after 9am and walk out of the building at 4 pm every Friday when finishing time was 5 pm, even when there was plenty for her to do, no one challenged her.
      Everyone of her many f@ck ups was always some elses fault, another ones favourite was to attack some else in a meeting with a spurious allegation and when they responded would talk over them immediately saying lets move on as if she was being reasonable and non confronational.

      Wherever Woke appears , humour , unpredictability and entertainment rapidly disappear . I watch very little modern stuff on any channel , the Woke propaganda is too off putting, it is simply too Woke to Watch.
      One channel I can recommend is Walter presents , confusingly on More 4, which has a wide range of European drama. Whilst some are too Woke to Watch there are some good ones free from the worst of woke nonsense and far superior to anything from the BBC, ITV or the USA.

    I’m so looking forward to the ‘bounce-back’ on this extra jobs issue, especially, as Snuffers says earlier, Waitrose stuff in their weekly rag is mostly ‘written’ by beeboids, so there’ll be quite a lot of vouchers changing hands on that little bingo!

    Then there’ll be a look at what the labourites are up to, and also the limpdems and a few sundry other bods who are snouting in the trough, but the fun will come when it turns out that all the beeb commentary will be based on leftie stuff, and nobody will mention the unions, the ‘lords’, London, the ultra leftie councils, London again…

    …all until the inevitable crested wave comes back in to shore, over a bed of soft sand, then small pebbles, then huge tumbling rocks!

    A remarkably common recurring theme of BBC reports on various items of news is the message that the story somehow: “reinforces the urgent need for regulation of social-media platforms

    One might suggest that the BBC has a corporate self-interest in stifling rival alternative media platforms – to which suggestion that villianous character, our latterday Richard III, the scheming politician Francis Urquhart would say: “You might very well think that; I couldn’t possibly comment

    Suffice to say the latest BBC report I have under review hereabouts boldly concludes: ‘A DfE spokeswoman said: “We are clear that social-media companies need to take action against harmful content on their platforms and we are introducing laws which will usher in a new era of accountability for these social-media companies

    Seems the BBC and the Government are thinking along very much the same lines. Hand in glove. You might call it the iron fist of authority within the velvet glove of BBC concern.

    So what’s the cause of concern this time? And I hope you’re all concentrating – hey, you at the back… I hope you’re not sniggering? Perhaps you’d like to share the joke with the class?

    BBC: ‘A teacher who has been the target of abuse on TikTok says others in the profession are being “pushed over the edge” by online harassment

    Please, Sir, what form does this take? BBC: ‘The posts often feature footage from learning resources used by teachers during lockdowns

    So, what we have here is some kids have put clips of their teachers’ Zoom-style lessons up on social media for other people to see and some people… other kids, etc… have made rude comments.

    Now if you’re like me, you may have been enjoying David Starkey’s new series of talks on YouTube where he talks extemporaneously on the subject of history. Wind him up and off he goes. There’s a man unashamed of the sound of his own voice. And one unlikely to cringe at adverse comments. But what a fine teacher.

    Whereas: BBC: ‘Tom Rogers is one of dozens of teachers who have reported harassment on social media in recent weeks, some of whom have signed off sick. “You’re thinking when you go in that kids are laughing at you and everyone’s seen it,” he told the BBC. “You don’t know who’s seen it, but you know probably a lot of kids have.”‘

    I’m really struggling to see what the big problem is here. I recall from my own school days that my teachers were perfectly aware of what rude nicknames the kids might have had for them and which of their personal – often knowingly cultivated – characteristic ticks and foibles were laughed at. They overheard the jokes and sometimes read the graffiti. It was a form of informality accepted within the then more formal hierarchy. To put it in dramatic terms – it was an occasional breaking of the fourth wall.

    But now within our more egalitarian atmosphere of diminished authority and societal standing of teachers we seem to have bred a snowflake generation.

    Mr Rogers said he tried not to let online trolls affect him, but was worried about other teachers who are not as used to social media

    And apparently, those who profess not to be snowflakes instead profess to worry on behalf of those they assume to be so.

    ‘”I think it’s pushing some over the edge because of everything we’ve been through in the last two years,” he said, adding that some people were “quite fragile coming out of the pandemic”.’

    ‘”They will quit their jobs, they will have to go off work with stress-related illness because of this. This will be the tipping point,” he added.

    Interestingly some of my points above are conceded within the BBC report: ‘Tom Quinn, a headteacher and chief executive…‘ a bit of titular inflation there… ‘told the BBC that… “Over the years teachers and pupils have had relationships and joking relationships and have names for each other. This is different now,” he said.

    Really, how so?

    When a child posts defamatory remarks, or humiliating remarks, on TikTok, it can be seen by up to two million people across the world. That has a really big impact when there is crucially no right to reply for the teacher.

    Take a leaf out of Starkey’s book. Be on top form teaching-wise and grow yourselves a thicker skin.

    A spokesman for TikTok said harassment and bullying had “no place” on the platform.

    Which inversion of couse reminds me of the old joke: “Mum, I don’t want to go to school. All the kids and all the teachers hate me” “But son, you have to go to school, you’re the headmaster!

    And having brought this little issue to light the BBC can be pretty sure this won’t be the last we hear of it, since a: ‘spokesman said TikTok would increase its funding for an online helpline for professionals, which he said would help teachers report content

    And of course: ‘Headteachers’ union the Association of School and College Leaders… General secretary Geoff Barton… warned that the trend “reinforces the urgent need for regulation of social-media platforms

    That there is what they term the money shot.

    What, no newspaper headlines?

    ‘“Now it’s official”: The Sun is ‘worthless asset’ after Murdoch writes down its value‘ (The London Economic, which sneeringly editorialises ‘Tell us something we don’t know, Rupert‘ but we sense all titles of the dead tree press will be similiarly doomed, as will the broadcasters unless they can scupper social media platforms with lots of stultifying overbearing regulation)

    The invasion of the European continent continues. This invasion consists of legal and illegal migrants and to the indigenous Europeans this distinction matters very little, we are losing our culture and our home whether they are legal or illegal. We must remember that there are several 100 thousand legal immigrants to the UK each year which is several times greater than the number of illegals. Both are a problem and a threat.
    On the eastern border of Europe we see Poland determined to prevent migrants entering Its territory. Greece and Hungary have also defended themselves in the past year or two Italy under Salvini did the same. The French presidential candidates are all at least talking tough and proposing clamping down on migration both legal and illegal. In Denmark a tough stance has been taken against more migration.
    Right across the EU public opinion is forcing politicians to start to defend their populations from mass migration.Sadly in the UK this is not the case.
    The downside of Brexit was always that in the search for international brownie points ( pun intended) our feckless politicians would increase legal immigration . If the current trend in the EU continues and Europe really does begin to defend its borders and seriously reduce both legal and illegal migration then we should consider rejoining.
    Of course I recognise that it is highly unlikely that Brussels will really adopt a fortress Europa policy on migration but there is certainly more chance of that happening than there is of the UK ever doing so.

      The UK Government is more concerned about the invaders lives more than ours.
      What’s wrong with Bo Jo and Pritt-stick and all the Tory MPs ? In the words of a former British statesman “they are building their own funeral pyre “

      The invaders are not concerned about their own lives or they would not cross the Channel. What do we have a Border Force for ? It would be more economic if P&O Ferries were chartered.

    The president of the Cambridge Union has backtracked on plans for a “blacklist” of speakers.

    Keir Bradwell caused controversy this week after announcing he would be banning historian Andrew Graham-Dixon along with a string of unnamed others.

    Mr Graham-Dixon caused outrage by performing a Hitler impression containing racial slurs during a debate about good taste on November 4.

    He later apologised for offence caused.

    But the resulting furore sparked widespread debate over free speech and resulted in Monty Python star John Cleese cancelling a scheduled appearance at the Union this week.

    He said: “I was looking forward to talking to students at the Cambridge Union this Friday, but I hear that someone there has been blacklisted for doing an impersonation of Hitler.

    “I regret that I did the same on a Monty Python show, so I am blacklisting myself before someone else does.”

    Captain Corelli’s Mandolin author Louis de Bernières subsequently wrote to the Times newspaper to publicly blacklist himself and urge “all historians, writers, artists, scientists and public intellectuals” to boycott universities which practised so-called “cancel culture”.

    Mr Bradwell, 21, was singled out for widespread attacks on social media and resorted to making his Twitter profile private for a time.

    But now writing in the Times newspaper, the 21-year-old, who stands down from his role next month, admitted he had made mistakes.

        Only worth it if you contact them to tell them, like I try to do where I can find the “contact us” part if they have one on a website.

        My comments vary, but are along the lines of :

        “I respect your decision to market your product primarily / exclusively to 3.3 % of the UK population (as reported in the last national census), but as a white British male, and part of the 99% not in a mixed marriage, feel unable to partake of your product / services that are patently not designed for my consumption as indicated in your televisual output”

        If the advert is particularly offensive, portraying stupid or silly white males and sensible BAMES and white wimmin (for example the latest “Urban Jungle advert) I may also remind them of the demography of Mastermind and University Challenge or Nobel Prize winners.

    For those of you are from outside London. I believe that
    the only programme on BBC TV that does not use
    what they call “positive discrimination ” is the
    Londonistan Programme. You see. that us 3 million or so
    indigenous Londoners are in a minority . So the BBC and
    in particular the anarchist Marxist editors, sub editors ,
    researchers and their willing stooges, the presenters and
    reporters can run a programme which is basically for the
    majority of Londoners. And pale , stale, males are all but
    a cancelled entity.
    They had a feature on the War Remembrance and the part
    played by Commonwealth soldiers. Earlier in the day on
    the programme, the Caribbean and Gurkha contingents were
    mentioned individually and” others” from the Commonwealth.
    Somebody with a trace of intelligence must of said that if
    the Gurkhas are mentioned individually , then the tens of thousands of Indian troops who fought so bravely against
    the Japanese should be included. So India was mentioned with
    the Caribbean in later reports.
    But I reiterate this programme is not for the likes of pale ,stale
    males. So the thousands upon thousands of Canadian, Australian ,New Zealand, South Africans etc , who gave their lives ., did
    not warrant any individual mention. But to be honest you
    would not expect it from this programme.

From what was said, it is a case of money, money, money required from the ‘Rich’ West to tackle the apparent decimation of the islands and to halt the many deaths within the population. All down to Climate Change. The picture painted of absolute devastation of the islands, as a direct result of Climate Change prompted me to look further into the matter.

    What fun it is when the BBC inadvertently puncture their own balloon.

    For a good 48 hours the BBC have been celebrating the arrival of 1000 plus per day economic chancers……errrr….I mean traumatised vulnerable people…….escaping by boat from the hellhole that is……errr ……France.

    But the BBC then reported on the nationalities of some of these sailors.

    Apparently 1000 of them were from…..wait for it…..Vietnam.
    Vietnam. Not my favourite place but stable enough to have a fairly decent economy. Stable enough for UK companies to arrange tourist holidays there. Stable enough for Mr S junior to go backpacking round there and come back with a favourable impression.

    So how about cutting the crap, and put them on the next Vietnam Airlines flight out of Heathrow? That’s the low cost airline that has opened up tourism from the UK, according to the brochure I am reading.

    There. How hard was that, Priti?

    Although I know this site is heavily plagerised by other writers I don’t expect this piece will find it’s way to mainstream media.

    The situation in Belarus / Poland border, and how the EUs Socialist agenda caused it to happen.

    OK lets not kid ourselves Lukashenko is a monster backed and supported by another one, but neither are socialists. They have seen the damage Socialism did to their countries and they don’t want to repeat those lethal political errors.
    They understand Socialism though and they are more than capable of exploiting its evil weaknesses to their own end, hence their use of migrants to invade Europe.

    There are only a couple of thousand there, a small number compared to those Boris the bottler and his gang of far left loons allow in every day from France, and yet the fact that Lukashenko has told the truth about an ‘invasion’ means the EU has no choice but to resist the tiny number from Belarus while turning a blind eye to the hordes turning up from elsewhere.

    Socialism has caused this situation to develop. If the EU had not been attempting to carry out the UNs policy of population replacement then the migrants would not have even set off from home knowing they’d be sent straight back there again.
    Hypocrisy and fear has prevented them from smiling at Lukashenko and saying the truth, that they will take as many as he can send them to wipe out the White race they hate so much.

    And so we find ourselves at potentially another flashpoint which might result in war, a war the EU certainly cannot win, and probably not even with US help either.

    Eastern Europe have men in their armies. Men trained to fight and die if necessary in the cause. The West have a bunch of wet diversity idiots who can tell the enemy all about their lack of ekwalitee and how they should check their priveledge before being bayonetted to death.

    The truth is that on top of EU Socialism is US Socialism which has emboldened Putin. NO one takes the US military seriously now, and without that deterrent who knows what will happen. It might be said that the demise of the West was caused by allowing silly women the vote, because it was them who believed the media lies about Trump and voted for Biden.

          How about this – end the peerage and use some of that money to increase the pay of fewer MPs – say 401 rather than the vast number now ….no second corrupt jobs – no consultancies – no other income …

          … something like a full time job – to be done in the UK and not the British Virgin Islands – as a minor example of corruption …

            I do wonder Fed, when you have some legal issue to sort out do you go down the pub and look for a know it all to do the job for you because he’s cheaper than hiring a lawyer, or do you bite the bullet and pay someone to do the job properly?

            SImilar with house improvements, will Basil fawltys Irish builder suffice because he’s cheap but screws the entire job up ? Or do you like me believe there is a balance between paying the going rate to get the jobs done properly?

            Selecting politicians has a huge impact on all our lives, and we have a right set of duffers of the quality of O’Reilly who leaves disaster in their wake.

            US senators equivalent to British MPs receive $174000 pa and after two terms it is a stipend for life if they are voted out.
            We didn’t used to be so stingy with MPs pay, it’s only since BLiar decided to virtue signal. When virtually every professional is earning at least three times an MPs salary you simply won’t attract decent competent people to do the job, and anyone who thinks this country is best run by people who can’t even get the right matching shoes on their feet is a fool !

              We live in different worlds . Few politicians are worth the £86k yet alone giving them more of our money . They are amoral and self serving .
              We have only a choise of the least worse . Politics is run by a system – the civil service – resistant to change with with they disagree ( see Thatcher / Cummings ) and built on hierarchy and entitlement .

              As for lawyers – i have been a victim of their incompetence too . And of course there are far too many dodgy lawyers in the commons – see Jeff Cox .

              I could run examples of parliamentary in compensation all day – but every once in a while they make a big mistake – like allowing us to vote on an issue – see Brexit – which so many troughers fought …

              Id be very adverse to using a corrupt system like the US one as an example for us – hell they let a whole election be stolen by the swamp you so love

                Sadly those politicians we had with ‘balls’ are no longer around – although when they were around we didn’t have the migrant ferry service or the influx of illegals we have been getting in recent years. This generation of politicians have never experienced the ‘school of hard knocks’, regardless of political colour, so I resign myself to knowing that whosoever I vote for, none have any bloody backbone, and if I came back in 100 years, the NHS will still want money because which politician would dare to disband it ? The length of the south coast will house the second largest population of Muslims outside of the Middle East, because the ferry service from France will have 5 crossings a day without opposition, and there will be no teachers or schools because kids will be taught on their computer by a robot !

                It’s a cyclical argument, the people there are not worth the pay but if you don’t increase it you won’t attract better.

                I wonder when you make a comment like “the swamp you so love” if you understand what the swamp is let alone why you would think I could possibly ever love such a thing?

                My vision of parliament is probably half the number of MPs, much better paid, once two terms served the pay is there for life no outside earning or gifts allowed – for life after serving as an MP. No gifts or employment for family either to prevent corruption through close relations.

                Loss of all benefits if convicted of criminal acts whilst in office.

                It wouldn’t hurt to abolish the two political parties either and have new ones reform. As anyone who has ever canvassed will tell you, the nuber of brain dead voters who will tell you they are being controlled from beyond the grave by long dead relatives is shocking.

                Fed, Geoffrey Cox is being attacked because he is a Conservative and a keen Brexiteer. This whole thing has been confected because the sucker in charge of the Labour Party is not cutting through to the voting public, is leading a divided Party (policy as well as Brexit) and is under pressure from his deputy (who he dare not sack or dicipline) and the rest of the Momentum crowd. All the people in the headlines are Conservatives and Brexiteers. Doesn’t that give you a clue?

                It is plain for all to see. It is artificial and is all designed to shore up Starmer because Labour are unelectable with Rayner & Momentum in charge. It is only with Starmer in charge can the UK be taken back into the EU ‘to preserve the Union’. Only a silver-tongued Lawyer leading Labour can talk people into doing what the elite, including the BBC, want which is the Blair era all over again, EU and all.

      Agree. Turning the boats back , or ignoring them if in trouble , breaks international law, not that I care about that but our politicians certainly do. But I wonder if the RLNI and the so called Border Force were to intercept every single boat that approached the UK in daylight and ensure they were taken straight to a reception centre were they were kept until processed , which could require months , and had the only the bare necessities provided. All mobiles confiscated and interrogated for country of origin prior to returning them if this is identified. It would of course still leave those whose origin couldn’t be identified as UK responsibility .
      This would force them to cross at night, a much more perilous journey , and of course they could still be intercepted if we chose to do so and treated as above.
      If Macron wasn’t so bitter about Brexit the French could if they wished stop all the boats from launching with ease. Just a few surveillance drones and a rapid deployment force on hand. Easy.
      We must also drastically cut benefits to every illegal who escapes deportation. If we give them very little they will stop coming. Surely in a sovereign country , we are one aren’t we, this is possible.

        Doublethinker, I too thought mobile phones should be taken off the new arrivals and used to identify them. Then I realised the U.K. could only do it for a very short time. As soon as it became known in their communities, then phones would be thrown in the water just before rescue. I could also see all those charity workers taking the phones for safe keeping and bringing them or the SIM cards into the U.K. via somebody’s luggage or the post.

    No need to get all the way across the channel.
    The authorities and charities will literally meet you half way. And then bring you safely in to port.

    You may have to put up with. temporary overcrowding but don’t worry. England has endless ‘refugee charities’ campaigning to get you a better immediate service.

    And afterwards, enjoy living in a nice hotel with ensuite facilities, free canteen, and leisure activities. You don’t have to pay for anything. We’ll even give you spending money so you can ring home and tell your young male muslim friends and relatives how easy it all is.

    Later stiil, you’ll get English lessons, free social security benefits and housing. You don’t have to pay anything. And if you have any problems, don’t worry. They will be given prime coverage by our world famous impartial state broadcaster.

    England. A country of suckers who will pay for you to have a good life.

    Oh the irony. Oh the contrast.

    The BBC are bigging up this year’s Tory sleaze allegations. They just love it. The stupid Tories make it easy for them of course, but no matter. Boris has had to declare, at COP26 of all places, in front of the world’s media and 200 participating countries, that the UK is not corrupt.
    Now let’s ignore for my purposes the validity of the sleaze. To make it easier, let’s assume it is all sleaze. What is it costing us? £1 million? Maybe £2 million. Park that thought.

    And now let’s go over to COP 26. Where many African and indeed other ‘developing’ countries are demanding £ billions from the UK and the rest of the West in order to confront climate change.

    Hands up those who think that every penny of the billions in handouts to all manner of undemocratic tinpot dictatorships in Africa and elsewhere for Climate Change purposes would be spent exclusively for those purposes? Just as I thought. No-one.

    Hands up those who think much of those billions would mysteriously end up after laundering into the Swiss bank accounts of the dictators? Just as I thought. Most of you.

    Those dictators must be laughing at the UK sleaze allegations like they cannot believe what suckers we are.
    Laughing all the way to their bank.
