      Oh, I see a fat cat (but not of the Bunter Boris sort).

      99.99% of Covid deaths seem to be of three types:

      1. The morbidly obese
      2. The already on death’s doorstep
      3. Both

      That will be the COLOUR of sticking plasters for cuts and grazes then. Good luck with that Sajid. And then I did read that a ‘Woke’ School was very keen on installing TAMPAX machines in boys toilets because ‘you never know what’. Diversity of the trans. Medical or Health & Safety gone completely mad?

      That is according to the BBC Fact checkers which is where many of this nonsense is made public as if it were true. The absurdity is beyond comedy.

    OK so how is this Hull news ?

    The presenter’s Twitter shows she has a strong interest in Sikh stuff in India
    She rarely tweets about Hull
    So today she went to a Sikh Temple in Hull and asked the people there about the new Indian government policy
    And voila, it’s “Hull news” now

    The item was 50% of the 5 minute bulletin, which included the weather.

    If you follow al beeb on the Rittenhouse case, you’re saying all these things …

    I didn’t know that Kyle put out a fire in a rubbish bin that was being rolled down the street to a forecourt to blow it up, with people all around.

    I didn’t know that the Police were told to stand down as businesses were being destroyed. 

    I didn’t know that Kyle’s Dad, Grandma and friends all lived in Kenosha, 20 minutes from where he resided with his Mom part-time in Illinois. 

    I didn’t know that Joseph Rosenbaum knocked him down twice and then attempted to kick him with lethal force to the head. 

    I didn’t know that Huber had hit him in the head twice with a skateboard. 

    I didn’t know Gaige Grosskreutz, a felon in possession of firearm (in violation of his probation), aimed his gun at Kyle first BEFORE Kyle fired on him, as Grosskreutz admitted on the stand. 

    I didn’t know that in the State of Wisconsin, it is legal for Kyle to have a gun, even at age 17 (which was why the gun charge was dismissed). 

    I didn’t know that Kyle did not cross state lines with a gun he wasn’t supposed to have. The rightful gun owner, who lived in Wisconsin, did what he was legally permitted to do. 

    I also didn’t realize that Rosenbaum was a 5 time convicted child rapist and that Huber was a 2 time convicted woman beater. I didn’t know that Grosskreutz was a convicted burglar with the US equivalent of GBH on his record too. 

    I didn’t know they were all white! (much like the “i” today)

      I believe I read in American Thinker that Grosskreutz tried to chisel $10 million in a claim for damages against the state of Wisconsin. In that claim he said he had no weapon. God knows what he thought the loaded Glock which he pointed at Rittenhouse’s head was that he subsequently admitted under cross-examination.

      I also read on AT that the judge either read or pointed out to the jury an Abe Lincoln speech about riots and the right to a fair trial after reports of potential threats to jurors in the (non-)case.

      If it hadn’t been so serious, it would be a farce worse than the Dreyfus affair, although Rittenhouse must now be damaged and marked out for life .

    The latest post from Craig https://isthebbcbiased.blogspot.com/2021/11/moving-onand-on-as-job-done.html

    Moving on…and on [as ‘job done’]

    The BBC may have moved on but The Times is still doing proper reporting:
    Liverpool bomber ‘reverted to Islam’ in months before attack
    The Liverpool hospital bomber had reverted to practising Islam in the months before his attack, investigators believe. One theory is that Emad Al Swealmeen, who had converted to Christianity after his arrival in Britain, was trying to atone for apostasy which is considered to be punishable by death by some Islamic scholars.’

    That, literally, was my best guess as soon as I heard his name and began hearing all the ‘Christian convert’ stuff-and-nonsense that the BBC was pumping out over and over again – particularly on hearing that he was living with other ‘asylum seekers’.

    ‘You won’t hear that on the BBC’ used to be a half-quip, but no longer. You really won’t hear that on the BBC – at least if the BBC has anything to do with it.

    I’ve checked TVEyes. BBC TV, across its various TV channels, has only mentioned Al Swealmeen for a few seconds a very few times in recent days, and always in connection to ball bearings – just a sentence or two at most at a time.”

        I think it was you who had been shadow banned from the Telegraph. I was too. But I have recently found that my banishment is over and I am allowed to comment again.
        Of course I was never told that I had been banned or why, nor that my sentence is over, but I suspect that the ban was because I kept asking why readers weren’t allowed to comment on an increasing range of stories and could the paper explain their policy on this.

    Dr Irfan Halim from Swindon’s Great Western Hospital was taken ill on 10 September and died on 14 November.

    Health officials said they were “devastated” and said the father-of-four was the hospital’s third doctor to have died from the virus.

    s wife said her heart was “shattered in pieces beyond imagination”.

    A GoFundMe page for his family has raised more than £90,000 with a target of £100,000.

    When first taken ill Dr Halim collapsed on the hospital’s Covid ward where he was working.

      According to the Daily Mail the doctor had been a specialist who had left the NHS and carried out entirely private work before the pandemic. Presumably the work dried up when the NHS took over the private hospitals. Apparently he had been doing over 300 operations a month and had over 1200 patients. (No, I didn’t understand that bit). Now I don’t wish anyone ill, but that number of private patients, he must have had an enormous income, and I assume the need for a go fund me page, difficult to believe. Maybe I should just not believe everything I read on a Daily Mail online page.

He could see the forces of absolute evil trying to drag the USA into the dirt and in his juvenile way decided enough is enough so like a man took it upon himself to act, say what you like but that is the undeniable truth. I applaud his bravery, his actions and his ultimate decision when faced with the vicious deviants at the point of contact.

    The BBC is whipping up the lynch mobs with its dangerously false narrative about the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict…and Biden is a disgrace as he announces he is angry that Rittenhouse is innocent…let’s just string him up to show how real justice works eh?…..

    US President Joe Biden has said he is angry after a teenager who shot dead two men during racial unrest last year in Wisconsin was cleared by a court.

    The president expressed dismay at the verdict in a written statement although earlier he said he stood by the jury.’

    What exactly is he angry about? Where is the BBC denouncement of him for undermining the judicial system and labelling him a ‘threat to democracy and law and order’?

    The BBC of course never accepts verdicts that go the ‘wrong way’…when the supposed victim is black. Michael Brown smashed a police officer’s face, tried to take his gun and was shot as he tried to attack him again….the BBC thinks the police officer executed Brown. The same with Trayvon Martin….the BBC doesn’t seem to understand self-defence….but wait…one verdict they’re not worried about, but perhaps should be, is the one that saw a police officer put on show trial and convicted for the death of George Floyd…who died from cardiac arrest not suffocation and which was likely brought on by his consumption of dangerous drugs.

    The BBC that told us white police officers were basically ethnic cleansing blacks from the streets….but when you checked the facts it turned out that many of the officers were themselves Black, Asian or Hispanic….the BBC suddenly turned to ‘police brutality’ to explain this…but slowly reverted to the white police assassins narrative….and never mind nearly all the deaths were brought on by the violence of the ‘victim’….and of course the BBC completely ignores the deaths of whites at the hands of the police….including one almost exactly the same as the Floyd case…minus the drugs.

    The BBC’s narrative about Rittenhouse has been to portray him as a man going out looking for violence and provoking it…totally untrue….no mention is made of the violent assaults made on him which could easily have killed him…nor any mention of the gun that was pointed at him by one of the ‘victims’….it’s his own fault…

    ‘The law considers whether Mr Rittenhouse believed himself to be in imminent threat of harm, but it does not factor in the choices he made in the hours and days beforehand that put him in the middle of a volatile situation, with guns drawn and tempers flaring. ‘

    Hmmm….so remind me…who was being volatile…who was being violent and trashing the city…who was also carrying arms?

    The BBC keeps mentioning the second amendment but forgets that the BLM mob was armed and has been armed for over a year and a half as they’ve led riots across the country….still ongoing.

    Odd how the BBC just ignores these gun-toting BLM/Antifa rioters and terrorists even as they trash America….odd that as police shoot protestors on the streets of Rotterdam the BBC reports it as if nothing outrageous had just happened…but then the protestors/rioters were anti-lockdowners so it’s OK…just as it was OK for a known ‘problem’ cop to shoot an unarmed woman in the Capitol Building on January 6…..no BBC outrage about that ‘police brutality’/execution.

    On Today the BBC gave a very short clip of Rittenhouse saying he was pleased about the verdict[no shit] before turning to a black lawyer who got a long slot to denounce the verdict despite admitting that ‘There was legitimate evidence that Rittenhouse was defending himself’. Apparently the verdict was wrong because it sent the wrong signal that you can just shoot people and call it ‘self-defence’ and get away with it….hmmm….and yet surely there would have to be some of that ‘legitimate evidence’ no?

    The BBC is whipping up the lynch mobs and stoking dangerous , false ideas, anger and hatred.

    The BBC is the most dangerous organisation in Britain.

    What will stay with me from the bizarre events of yesterday, however, is the confirmation that when it comes to racism, there is a hierarchy.
    Don’t get me wrong,
    I stand firmly against cancel culture, witch-hunts and the sinister religion of offence. I’d rather let things slide than let them rankle.
    But it does get up my nose that when it comes to the oldest hatred, the liberal instinct is to *grope* for excuses.

    * Freudian slip ?

    Soooo…Rafiq is anti-Semitic, has a problem with Blacks, is a bit of a ‘brute’ with the ladies and…er…drinks….just as so many Muslims do on the quiet. [Koran doesn’t they can’t drink just that they shouldn’t, preferably, attend prayers drunk]

    Kinda undermines his heroic status even as the BBC keeps telling us his statement was ‘harrowing and powerful’…..probably because he’d had a long time, and probably a bit of help [maybe from those BBC journalists with whom he was in contact], to shape his claims into the manipulative, emotive and dramatic accusations that he came out with….most of it, like Meghan Markle’s, likely very exaggerated, untrue and cynically designed to generate sympathy and shock…hence all the stuff about babies and ‘inhuman’ treatment…and not going to allow his kids to play cricket….emotive, eyecatching stuff that he knows the BBC et al will lap up….as indeed they did and are busy using to try and portray the whole of Britain as some racist hell-hole on the basis of a few crass, off-colour jokes to a man who was as racist as anyone.

    Not just cricket that has to confront its demons but all of society[white society natch]…apparently…

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/59350548

    ‘English cricket’s racism scandal is the latest compelling example of the way sport regularly forces society to confront some of its most important issues.

    Rafiq’s harrowing testimony and allegations of institutional racism to a parliamentary committee this week was seen as a wake-up call. Not only to the game’s authorities, but also to wider society.

    His emotional description of the effects of racism was regarded by many as a hugely significant moment in a much bigger debate around race relations, Islamophobia and division in Britain today. ‘

    Hmmmm…..no.

      Is that right ?
      So may Islamic states completely ban alcohol
      .. yet it’s usually available on the back streets.

      In one country my local friend said “there is this really good cake we eat at weddings and then they dance like crazy”
      So we bought some
      I said “You do know this fermented rice cake .. it is alcohol”
      His reply “Not alcohol, just fermented rice”
      Many other local people said the same line to me.

    I can only surmise, this is the end result of all those alien abductions over the years with their genetic experiments.

    A society led by those intent on destroying itself from within and supported by moronic liars and cheats on social media and at the bbc whipping up discontent and endessly wandering around with placards shouting abuse and rioting.

    A generation who feel entitled in the extreme.

    Entitled to feel offended at every opportunity,

    Entitled to demand those with opinions and political views different from theirs are not allowed to voice these opinions or views

    Entitled to demand how workers taxes are spent whilst paying no tax whilst in “full time” “education” (which apparently allows endless days to protest on the streets of London) and avoiding tax at the bbc

    Entitled to demand police are defunded yet demand women (only women) are “safe on the streets”

    Entitled to attack those who fought for and worked and built the country they sponge off and pay no tax towards.

    Entitled to attack and abuse those who fought real fascism and lost so many lives doing so.

    Entitled to attack historic associations with UK slavery ONLY whilst living off the economic and educational benefits provided from these generations, and conveniently ignoring all other cultures that had and still have slaves

    Entitled to use the word racism ad nauseam whilst protecting and making excuses for racist sexist BAMES .

      We don’t need a ‘review’ – we need action NOW.

      Ann says put all those we already have in secure reception centres until processed and then return them.
      (I’ve said before I bet the contributors to this site would be able to process them quickly enough).

      I think we should have dozens of planes going out each day to wherever carrying all illegals – irrespective of how they arrived here. If necessary, their supporters – that would be the whining lefties, foreign lawyers, HO staff etc. – should be deported on the same planes. If they glue themselves to the runway they do so at their own risk.

      If action is not forthcoming from those whose job it is supposed to be it is surely time for direct action from the population. Regarding beach landings in particular I believe the usual method of defence of the realm involves artillery.

      And **** ‘international law’.

    The Left’s great Blob of obduracy blocks every path to reform

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/article-10225701/MAIL-SUNDAY-COMMENT-Lefts-great-Blob-obduracy-blocks-path-reform.html

    “Not only have the post-1960s generation of social and political college radicals now reached the highest offices in the Civil Service. They have been encouraged to throw their weight about by several forces.

    The huge radical influence of the BBC, always on the side of the Left, gives unending backing to those in Whitehall who wish to resist conservative policies. And the brutal direct intervention in Civil Service matters by the Blair government in 1997 tipped the balance heavily and permanently to the Left. For the first time in modern history, unelected political commissars, in the shape of Alastair Campbell and Jonathan Powell, were allowed to give orders to civil servants. We may be sure they used this power to the full, albeit at the ultimate direction of an elected official.

    The legacy of this change still remains. A great Blob of Left-wing obduracy, lying in the very heart of the Civil Service, blocks almost every path to conservative reform. Those officials who wish to be properly impartial are isolated. At the same time, Civil Service working practices have become worryingly lax, with huge numbers still working from home long after real businesses began a widespread return to work.

    This is why Ministers such as Home Secretary Priti Patel struggle to get Conservative policies on immigration implemented. Whitehall is both biased and inefficient.

    While Downing Street may have its own small team of loyal advisers, they are pitted against a legion of opponents who know every lever and quirk of the system. This is why Boris Johnson, the Queen’s First Minister with a hefty Westminster majority, cannot appoint the distinguished former editor of the Daily Mail, Paul Dacre, to be the head of the crucial media regulator Ofcom.

    The car is telling its driver what to do. This simply cannot continue. Power in a parliamentary democracy must rest with Ministers, not with officials.

    Reform of the Civil Service has now become the most important task of all, for without it, little else can be done.”

    “It is important to understand that the massive expansion of immigration was no accident, as Andrew Neather, a speech writer for Prime Minister Tony Blair, would later explain.

    In a 2009 article for the Evening Standard, he wrote: ‘It didn’t just happen. The deliberate policy of Ministers from late 2000 until at least February last year [2008]… was to open up the UK to mass immigration. I wrote the landmark speech given by the then Immigration Minister Barbara Roche in September 2000, calling for a loosening of controls. It marked a major shift from the policy of previous governments: from 1971 onwards, only foreigners joining relatives already in the UK had been permitted to settle here.
    England is already the most crowded large country in Europe

    ‘The earlier drafts I saw [of the Cabinet Office paper on immigration] also included a driving political purpose: that mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural. The results were dramatic. In 1995, 55,000 foreigners were granted the right to settle in the UK. By 2005 that had risen to 179,000.

    ‘Partly by accident, partly by design, the Government had created its longed-for immigration boom. But Ministers wouldn’t talk about it. It wasn’t necessarily a debate they wanted to have in working men’s clubs in Sheffield or Sunderland.’

    Indeed so.

    There was probably a political motive, too. Exit polls suggest that 77 per cent and 64 per cent of ethnic minority voters chose Labour in the General Elections of 2017 and 2019.”

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-59363544

    Give me strength. Even equipment is racist now. And Javid jumping on yet another bandwagon.

    What this article unwittingly tells us is that black people and white people are different right down at the biological level. Something the BBC would never admit except – as in this case – they can use it to paint them as victims.

    Black people, Asian people and white people are different. Just as men and women are different. There’s no good or bad about it, it just is. The whole BBC far-Left agenda is built on a lie.

    It’s what makes ‘equality’ such a joke. Of course everyone should be given equal opportunities. Then from those opportunities, they will naturally select the things they are good at or interested in. It’s how nature works and the reason we are here.

    Shoehorning people into places for purely political agenda reasons never works. As Kamala Harris is demonstrating so well. And why the world is now split down the middle like never before.

    Oh Auntie, what huge news gathering resources you have!

    Our BBC goes with a version of that classic journalistic trope, the man-bites-dog headline: ‘Bear shot dead by 70-year-old hunter in France

    This click-baity shout, which is – almost – the denouement to the plot of the fairy tale Red Riding Hood, might well have angered the BBC’s more conservationist-minded audience into an outrage dopamine rush: ‘The man reportedly fired two shots with a rifle at the female bear, who was wandering with her cubs at the time, killing the animal instantly

    However… ‘The man, part of a local hunting association in the Seix region of Ariège, had been bitten by the bear several times, causing damage to the arteries in his legs, police said.

    A local council official in Ariège, Christine Tequi, said that such attacks were “what we feared… Today, you can really see that cohabitation is complicated,” she told AFP.‘ – she said a thing there. Report from BBC – news credit to AFP

    As we take a walk on the wild side, how about: ‘Barcelona tackles roaming wild boar problem‘ (BBC) ‘Barcelona is one of a number of European communities which have large numbers of wild boar living nearby and they have become a common presence in the city itself.‘ – How’s that working out?

    The singer Shakira, who lives in Barcelona, recently complained that a boar had attacked her in a park, and encounters between locals and the animals have been on the increase.‘ – unless I’m much mistaken, that’s the sort of story you pick up when you spend all your journalistic day trawling celeb Twitter accounts.

    And should those stories not interest, then try: ‘Wolves in France: Farmers fear attacks… Wolves are protected under the Bern Convention, which France has signed up to.

    Now I’m unsure whether I’m criticising our national broadcaster’s duff newsgathering operation or perhaps drawing some strained anthropomorphic analogy to our european third world migrant problem?

    The Sunday Times cartoonist, Newman – who’s habitually a bit of a half-hearted Matt from the Telegraph – today sketches for us a couple of King Harold of Hastings fame’s Saxons, peering over the cliffs at an armada of Norman boats representing the invasion fleet of 1066: Is it too late for a wholesale review of border controls?

    There’s one in the eye for Boris: ‘Migrant crisis puts Tories in peril‘ (Sunday Telegraph) – our Matt meanwhile is uncharacteristically a tad behind the game, stuck on last week’s news lampooning a couple of business types looking out over the City of London skyline from their office: “I Googled my name and apparently I’m an MP

    The lady tennis player vanishes – not quite an Alfred Hitchcock mystery, rather, another example of what we have come to expect from our friends in the East: ‘Like tennis player Peng Shuai, I went missing in China. Here’s what happened.‘ (Telegraph)

    BBC: ‘Peng Shuai: New video ‘insufficient’ evidence of Chinese player’s welfare – WTA‘ WTA… WHO?

    They can drop some test tube releasing a virus that bumps off millions world wide but disappear a young tennis girl and we’ll hold them to account – see if we don’t!

    Those amoung us of what’s termed the Black Pilled tendency – meaning those fatalisticaly resigned that there is nothing you can do that will change anything – likely conclude at this point we may as well have voted for Jeremy Corbyn: ‘The public sector has grown so fast during the pandemic that it has created about as many jobs as were lost in industries such as hospitality, according to the Bank of England’s governor‘ (Times) – and I’m guessing he thinks that’s a good thing.

    We begin to realise why the left loves Lockdown: ‘Bare-faced cheek of Boris. He’s maskless again days after hospital apology‘ – wails the Sunday Karen… sorry, the Sunday Mirror, outraged as though the careless BoJo had dropped his pants on public transport, exposing the de Pfeffel family heirlooms to all and sundry.

    The Sunday Express decides they might as well spell out what they’re all thinking – in big Pharma and in the Nudge Unit that is: ‘Get booster to save Christmas! Brits urged to have third jab as lockdown riots sweep Europe‘ – the causal effect put into our consciousness being presumably that a bad flu will set your town alight, unless you take yet another jab?

    We’ll give the Express a mark of B-minus, however, for their main headline: ‘Boris IS still a winner. PM backed but told, “solve migrant crisis”‘ – sadly, that won’t happen. Rough seas and lack of press interest will perhaps soon stave the problem off until next spring.

    The Daily Star Sunday is putting their money on a white Christmas: ‘We’re in the grit! Frozen roads hell ahead as no drivers for gritters.. plus salt shortage

    Juxtaposed on this tabloid’s cartoonish front cover is the WH Smith offer advertising another Mr Men title: ‘Little Miss Sunshine

    Just backtracking for a moment to the now forgotten terror attack in Liverpool. A quick fact-check on the initial media reports. No, the hero cab driver didn’t lock the doors. No, the police dragnet didn’t round up four co-conspirators. No, the bomber wasn’t a Christian. No, the mother’s hospital wasn’t his target. Apart from all that… good reporting.
