    “France holds crisis talks after migrant boat deaths”

    And the blame game goes on , but where does the blame lay?
    The EU invited them in, remember Merkel?
    The EU send them west and France ships then over here while the Tory government sits on its hands? Which puts our nation in extreme danger .
    At the same time our government cuts down our armed forces and pays the French millions.
    Do those “millions pay the smugglers and their dinghy suppliers?
    Is it all done by design or mere incompetence?

      Sad and all that, but it was just waiting to happen. Problem is, the Communists have taken Western countries so far from adhering to the ‘Rule of Law’, this kind of thing is inevitable.

      If the EU/France prevented these chancers from getting into Europe;
      If France provided the accommodation for the chancers they let into France then – in accordance with the law – they could have filled in and submitted their applications to enter the UK from there;
      Then anyone entering the UK illegally, would be returned to France;

      Just think, Priti Useless/Billy, if you and the French followed the law as in place for this kind of situation, you could have received all the paperwork applications from France and resumed Government consensus in taking in vast numbers of muslims clandestinely but out of the public gaze. The odd 20K / 30K would be concealed within the other hundreds of thousands arriving in the UK during the course of a normal year. The Government would resume their Ethnic Cleansing of the indigenous white population.

      Or, in other words, numerically:

      “Take care of the pennies, the pounds will take care of themselves”

      You know it makes sense………….

    Maybe it is if you are a racist

    rioting, assault and looting is a “racial justice protest” ???

    Levi Strauss & Co. reached out to its U.S. employees offering individual counseling and promoting a forthcoming session with a “racial trauma specialist” to “help promote safety, sharing and to encourage healing” following the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse, the company confirmed to FOX Business on Wednesday.

    Levi’s chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer, Elizabeth Morrison, sent an email following the verdict that began, “With the news that Kyle Rittenhouse was not convicted in the shooting of three individuals – two of whom lost their lives – during racial justice protests last year, this is a difficult day for many.”

      The America I give thanks for

      This will be my eighth and final Thanksgiving before I move back to the UK, and the thing that has struck me about living here is the courtesy, respect and old-fashioned politeness.

      When I tell Americans there are those in Britain who could learn from this, they seem startled. Surely, they ask, Britain – with its Royal Family – is the epitome of etiquette and courtliness.

      I ask if they’ve ever tried to get on the Victoria Line at Oxford Circus in the rush hour.

      But there will be a lot of families who won’t be gathering this year.

      A friend from Ohio – the kindest, most gentle soul – says his family won’t be getting together because of toxic divisions that have come to the fore in the past few years. He works in the media and is sick of having his family telling him he works for fake news.

      It has been a growing and depressing phenomenon in America, where the list of no-go topics for the dinner table is now so extensive, better to call the whole thing off.

          I do not condone the actions of those found guity, but am not prepared to listen about another false martyr

          In a major blow to the defense, Walmsley ruled that they could not admit any evidence of Arbery’s troubled past — including brushes with the law and mental heath history.

          Lawyers for the McMichaels argued in court papers that Arbery’s criminal record stretching back to 2013 showed he had “used running or jogging as a cover to commit crimes” and that he had a pattern of either fleeing when confronted or aggressively challenging his accusers.

          AHMAUD ARBERY DEATH: 12 PERSON JURY CONSISTS OF 11 WHITE JURORS DESPITE PROTESTS FROM PROSECUTION

          In at least two police encounters, Arbery allegedly cursed at and threatened officers, the papers say.

          When Arbery was killed, he was on probation for two crimes. He had carried a handgun onto school property in 2013 and fled from police when confronted. Six years later, he tried to shoplift a television, the papers say.

          https://www.foxnews.com/us/ahmaud-arbery-trial-what-georgia-jurors-didnt-hear

          Robert Rubin, one of the attorneys representing Travis McMichael, said Arbery was known as the “jogger” for dashing into convenience stores, allegedly grabbing food and running out.

          In June 2018, his mom, Wanda Cooper-Jones, called 911 after he refused to hand over her car keys. She allegedly warned the operator that her son had a mental condition and could become violent if police were too confrontational, Rubin wrote.

          Arbery’s mental health was allegedly spiraling, and he was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder later that year, according to the filing.

      I remember a BBC bod at the time talking about the fact they had CCTV of the guy snooping around someones house-build earlier – which was the start point for them targeting him for a citizens arrest (which ended up with the shooting).

      He actually said ‘Perhaps he was just looking for a refreshing drink’.

      This sums it up perfectly for me. The guy was a scumbag thief but you can’t shoot scumbag thieves so they are going to jail.

      Plus of course the juries lives would be threatened if they found him innocent.

      But the stand-out part of this story is: ‘Three white men have been found guilty of killing a black jogger ‘

      Where is the race element for the BLM supporter Darrel Brooks murders BBC ?.

      I remember considering an application to GCHQ when I returned from the Middle East in the 1980’s. Their advertisement emphasised the need for languages. Regular ‘languages’ you needed two degrees in, i.e. French / German. As I looked down the list, based upon more difficult languages, top of that was, Serb/Croat and Arabic. Indeed GCHQ would work with applicants without formal quals, in those two. I had studied Arabic and was competent in a day-to-day situation. Point being how can that work when the ‘minority’ trainees cannot even speak English properly.

    Happy Thanksgiving – we should have it as a public holiday for getting out of the ReichEU.

    BBC using the channel drownings to make it easier for illegals to enter the country without risk . I suppose it was inevitable .

    Unfortunately these drownings will not act as a deterrent and more will keep coming .

    That idea about sticking ships in the channel to put them on and take away sounds good . Problem is they’d need to be big and a lot of them .

    I wonder how many drownings it would take to make a difference . ?

    Today we have the eminently predictable: ‘27 migrants die in Channel disaster’ (Telegraph) reported numbers will vary at time of going to press but the fact is that those who either encouraged or ignored or did nothing concrete to discourage this illegal traffic, are the ones who are actually complicit in these deaths.

    The Times prevaricates somewhat then punts a slightly higher number than the Telegraph, still leaving room for error: ‘Dozens of migrants drown in Channel dinghy tragedy. At least 31 dead after boat deflates off Calais

    Our most coronaphobic of national news titles the ‘i’ relegates, perforce, their long and eagerly anticipated breathless announcement: ‘New Covis varient found‘ headline to a health feature on their unlucky page 13, but has no fear in trotting out the very biggest imaginable holy cow of a cliché: ‘Horror in the Channel: 31 die in search of a better life

    And if that hoary old saw “better life” made you wince a bit over your cornflakes… good news, you’re probably not a virtue-signalling metropolitan lefty type.

    These unfortunates are of course just the tip of the top section of a very large iceberg: ‘More than 200 people reach England in a day as they race to beat winter storms‘ (Telegraph)

    But is this incident the tipping point?

    Four suspected traffickers are arrested near Belgian border, accused of links to the sunken boat‘ (‘i’) – gosh that sounds like quick work by the gendarmerie. If investigation can be done that quick and easy then howcome…? Or are we being told PR tales of the typical quick dragnet reaction of cops caught with their pantalons down?

    We’ve seen a bit of that lately: ‘Four men arrested in relation to Liverpool bomb blast released‘ (Liverpool Echo 15 November)

    The Daily Mail falls into the trap of blaming it all on those legendary so-called people traffickers: ‘You’re letting gangs get away with murder‘ – that claim doesn’t really hold water – traffickers really don’t want their passengers failing to reach their preferred destination – this is about the worst advert the supposed traffickers will have had lately.

    This does however seem to be the official line: ‘PM: Smugglers are getting away with murder‘ (Daily Express)

    I’m a people traffickers sceptic. If you get my drift? If it weren’t for the promise of holidays, there wouldn’t be travel agents, would there?

    Which, apparently, there might not be – at least for us legal travellers: ‘Ski season in peril. New rules in EU could affect winter hoildays‘ (‘i’) – interesting to see Europe tightening its borders.

    The freebie Metro asks the obvious: ‘Why didn’t France stop them?

    The Labour-supporting Daily Mirror has to balance the internationalism and freedom of movement policies of the Party so when a boat goes down – they can only tug (no pun intended) at the heartstrings: ‘A human tragedy

    Oh the humanity!‘ cried the American commentator as the airship Hindenburg burst into flame on the old newsreel footage in 1937.

    Shameful‘ exclaims the Sun: ‘French police idly look on as rafts head to UK‘ – the tabloid is more than happy to J’Accuse…! the French meanwhile going large on the death toll: ‘Hours later, 33 migrants die.. one a little girl

    Frankly, I don’t know whether you’ve ever stood on a cliff trying to hold back the onrush of a determined flock of lemmings? The French have a point when they point to the UK pull factor being the main problem.

    How odd that our UK government evidently so very keen on the notion of the nudge factor when it comes to their policies, are keen to deny the pull factor in the immigration realm.

    Three guesses as to how the Guardian would cut the Gordian Knot? – I employ the classical Greek reference there since our lazy boy Boris, once the determined classicist, now seems to have contracted nappy-brain and reverts not to Plato but to Peppa Pig when in a fluster with his oratory. I digress.

    Guardian: ‘Charities urge UK government to save lives by opening safe routes for asylum seekers… “Now is the time to end the cruel tactic of seeking to punish or push away those who seek safety here”‘ – and in what appears to this reader as somewhat of a reversion to pre-feminist sentiments, it is very much women and children first over there at the Gruan: ‘Five women and one girl among victims after inflatable dinghy sinks during Channel crossing

    Odd echoes of that old journalistic trope – “Deadly earthquake in Peru – no Britains hurt

    Not that the Guardian doesn’t shed a tear or two for young men of colour – it’s just that they continually have that point to prove that these migrants are families rather than the obvious fact that they are predominently fighting age chaps.

    As if to prove a point – also from the Guardian front page: ‘Three white men whose murder of a black jogger led to a resurgence in the Black Lives Matter movement face life in jail

    I feel sorry for The Voice, the only British national Afro-Caribbean weekly newspaper, which having had their thunder (voice?) well and truly stolen by left-leaning white publications such as the Gruan, despite the significant growth of their target demographic, has contracted to a rather token monthly issue.

    Anything else on the frontpages?

    Germany goes liberal. Olaf Scholz has secured his place as the next Chancellor of Germany… to usher in socially liberal policies on immigration, trans rights and cannabis‘ (Times) – trying to lure us back into the EU, perchance?

    I’m put in mind of that classic war movie scene where the British POW is hauled in before the camp commandant, recaptured and having been bruised and beaten by the Gestapo, he is surprised to be offered a chair and then a cigarette from a silver cigarette box: “You see, vee Germans, vee are not all zee barbarians!

      “If investigation can be done that quick and easy then howcome?”

      Where do all those ‘boats’ come from? Someone is selling them, someone is buying them.

      Or does Border Force take them back each night and tie them up on a Calais beach? Which begs another question: How long is the actual coastline being used for departure? I bet it isn’t that long.

      The invasion isn’t a problem for the French or UK governments, the problem is keeping it out of the news.

          Talking to a friend living in South London some years back, he said there was a quiet supermarket car park he regularly walked past with his dog around 6:30-7:00 every morning. According to him, every morning there were three, or four battered old white vans/minibuses with East European (?) plates disgorging a dozen, or more East European/Gipsy/Middle Eastern looking men, each with a couple of bulging bin bags/backpacks/bedrolls etc…

          Who knows where these men were from, what their intentions were, or where they were going?

          How many such car parks, how many such ‘deliveries’, over how many years?

          No problem with legal immigration, but it doesn’t look like anyone has been keeping watch for decades.

    FRAMING TODAY Watch #1 – why then are you doing it?

    I caught the last five minutes of Farming Today with Charlotte Smith. Waitrose wins an award in the BBC Food and Farming Awards. There’s a surprise!

    Latest fear/scare story: wines will be in short supply this Christmas. Yeah. We’ve heard that one before. How many of those ‘shortage stories’ have turned out to be true? A big fat zero so far. The spokesman for something or other said they (he) was “not trying to encourage panic buying” (not much!) but he wanted an extension to the temporary visa scheme for lorry drivers for a whole year! This was the scheme (in the face of an artificially created shortage) to encourage HGV drivers from within the EU to come to the UK which has been, due to Pandemic times, spectacularly unsuccessful.

    Now, a little alarm bell rang in my head as he spoke. Spin, spin, spin it went. I seem to recall a distinct lack of articulated lorries delivering wines to Off Licences. Vans, yes. No HGV licence required artics at all. I seem to recall Threshers having their own transit vans (were they a sort of brown colour like a well-known US postal company?) with their name on the side.

    OK, a lot of wine is sold in supermarkets but those shops have their own distribution set-ups and while an HGV is involved in deliveries to the supermarkets, all the shortage SCARE! stories have turned out, so far, to be very different from reality.

    BBC FRAMING TOADY appears to have an agenda and it is not a pro-UK one.

    TOADY Watch #1 – the vital question not asked by the BBC

    Martha ‘The Bee Lady’ Kearney took care of the Prime Interview while Justin Webb handled the advertising slot on a grim morning. You would have thought that a ‘light’ item was very inappropriate after Kevin Foster MP, Under-SoS for Immigration and Future BoardersBorders with the Home Office was the Sacrificial Tory Lamb after 27 illegal immigrants died trying to reach the UK yesterday. Kevin was suitably wet and weedy in Molesworth-speak for Martha who did not have any tough questions. At least Martha did not interrupt.

    Martha did not ask the key question that has been lurking in Snuffy’s mind for weeks: “Why have MI6 not infiltrated the trafficking gangs and identified the guilty parties?” and “Are MI6 actively investigating them?” Whether Kevin Foster would have given a good answer, one knows not, the vital question was not asked.

    Yet another example of BBC dereliction of duty.

    Funny how they will use the word Muslim when they are victims, but never when they are the ones dishing out the violence. Particularly when they blow people to pieces are stab them in the neck.

    And the reason – which is official BBC policy – is so they don’t upset other Muslims.

    Interesting how in the case of Ahmaud Arbrey the media feels it’s ok to state in the headline that the killers where WHITE MALES, when it is absolutely clear they refuse to even mention the colour race religion or anything else when a criminal is anything other than White.

    This is blatant race hate on the part of the media and it is becoming more prevalent in our Socialist society. It should be stamped out.

      It is a bit interesting / sick -when the head of the executive makes comments on the verdicts of 12 jurors in the judicial system .
      Makes for the stench of political trials much stronger . You’d have thought Obama would have known better but I guess he thinks is safe with Biden as the buffer …

      Did she really say that?! Dear me. It was going on when I was at college in Rochdale in 1970.

      I must say that then, the girls were from rough areas…..and saw hanging around with the taxi drivers and restaurant owners as some kind of exotic life…where they were stars. But that vulnerability was exploited big style.

      51 years is a lot of abuse.

      Take a look at the “Great Barrington Declaration” which is a statement now signed by over 60000 scientists some of which lost their jobs over signing it – remember than when the universities bosses lie about academic freedom.

      It concerns the mismanagement of the covid pandemic by those placed to advise governments who in the first instance acted without sufficient information, but who now, being in possession of sufficient information are incapable of changing the approach because it might mean admitting the first approach was wrong.

    Some facts from EU Commission statistics (Eurostat) and EU Parliament.

    Detected illegal migrants in the EU in 2020
    557,455 illegal migrants were found in the EU, that the EU is aware of
    396,435 people were ordered to leave the EU in 2020
    Only 27,378 were compulsorily deported – 4.9% of the total illegal migrant population
    Main nationalities ordered to leave were Algerian, Moroccan, Albanian, Ukrainian and Pakistani
    Last year alone 125,226 illegal border crossings into the EU were detected
    Out of 557,455, just 12,300 are children (<14yrs)
    That is just 2.2% of the total
    Almost 98% are adults or older teenagers
    83.3% of the total are male
    Of these, 75.1% are aged under 35
    1.0% of the illegal migrants are girls aged under 14

      As long as the UK custom and practise is to give immigrants luxury they have previously only dreamed of they will keep coming. If their asylum application fails they are allowed to appeal , at the tax payers expense , ad infinitum. They are never deported.
      In France they are housed in allegedly squalid camps , in the UK in good hotels. In the UK if those who are put in ‘government accommodation ‘ are found to be unhappy with the conditions the government is forced by this or that watch dog to move them .
      In the UK there are many naive or subversive organisations , such as the Cof E or the BBC/Guardian axis of evil and the civil service, which scream blue murder if anyone try’s to stop the flow of migrants.
      Basically if the governments wants to stop the flow and regain control and its previous popularity it must change our laws so that illegals get a deal similar to that in France.
      If our elected government doesn’t have the appetite to take on the liberal blob then it proves that democracy is dead because there is certainly a majority in favour of stopping these invaders.

          Maybe so, but I don’t believe for one second that it is the real reason they are calling everybody racists.

          They are a minority who are being given inches every time they demand a foot. The end result is always that they benefit – either through more jobs, more promotion, more awards, compensation etc. If this reason disappeared they would invent another.

          Have you ever heard of a BAME refusing an award because they don’t think they deserved it and got it through anti-white racism ?. I’m sure maxi would spill his coffee in his rush to give me an example, but in reality it never happens.

        Trouble is that the majority of them were never the victims of the Slave trade and the numbers who were taken to North America was tiny.
        In the 375 years of the slave trade only 388000 were taken to North America, around 1000 per year. That is far too small a number to account for the numbers there now claiming to have been descendant of those original slaves.

    This saddens me. My grandad used to tell me of the way the Sally Army used to help the lads in the trenches in the first war and my dad recalls how they supplied meals for working class folk during the depression. The army knew about poverty and hard times suffered by the British people and ought to know better than to ram guilt and white privilege down our throats. Screw them.

    The Governments biggest mistake in the migrant merry-go-round was to hand over the responsibility of care of the arrivals to a private Company who are paid handsomely for each “head” they take on.

    This must be a massive incentive to keep the ball rolling and get as many of these people into the UK as they can.

    They will also be under no pressure to get these people into mainstream society e.g. looking after themselves through their own efforts as the longer they spend in this “guest” status with the Private Company, the more profit that Company makes.

    Illegal migrants should be a core responsibility of the Government and any illegal arrivals should be put in the hands of the Government border force etc. who’s job must be to vet the legitimate ones and remove the rest back to where they came as quickly as possible.

    Citizens are the Global responsibility of their native Country so any Country refusing to cooperate should be subject to a total cut off of diplomatic and financial benefits from the UK.

    If a person was deemed to be “illegal” in this respect then they must not qualify for legal help from the other gannets in the current system being the activist migrant specialist lawyers who also coin it in handsomely the bigger the problem gets.

    Put simply, private profit must be eradicated from the system as it warps the ability of the government to look after it’s own legitimate citizens.

    If this was the accepted model, the flood would dry up in no time.

    Which is precisely what the French are trying to tell our dumb parliament and leader.

    I am pretty sure that if I stepped off a plane to the USA, France, Germany or almost any Country in the World except the UK without passport I would very quickly find myself either in Jail or on a plane home.

      Anyone who does that is a potential thief, trespasser or house breaker and in a perfect world a call to the police would see them quickly arrested.

      The same should apply to the France-UK border, arrive via a proper immigration post, OK, via the ‘back door’, instant crime, instant arrest, instant locking up then deportation.

    Thanksgiving canceled? Liberals who say America’s holiday promotes genocide and White supremacy
    A green bean casserole recipe on the website Eater this week carried a warning for readers about the Pilgrims

    On MSNBC over the weekend, Gyasi Ross, who is Native American, explained a segment that white people have created a fake story around Thanksgiving and that the pilgrims are responsible for a system of White supremacy that is used to carry out “state sponsored” violence against Black people to this day.

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/liberals-slam-thanksgiving-holiday-that-promotes-genocide-white-supremacy

    In mid-November, the chancellor of the Washington, D.C., public schools, sent a letter to the D.C. public schools community encouraging parents and children to “decolonize” Thanksgiving, a holiday which he said brings up “horrors.”

    Lifestyle media company Green Matters posted an article this week outlining the many ways Thanksgiving is “bad.”

    “Not only is Thanksgiving offensive to Indigenous people, but it glorifies colonialism, slavery, and even epidemics,” the article states. “Many Americans who celebrate Thanksgiving have no idea just how cruel the holiday’s origins are, while those who do may choose to either boycott the holiday, or just use it as an excuse to express general gratitude, gather with family, and eat comfort foods.”

    I think todays reaction of the Blue Labour Marxist Tory party to the migrant crossings really does throw into the light just how incompetent useless and cowardly they are.

    They’ve failed to take any action at all for months save giving our money away to France for nothing in return, and now some migrants have died making an illegal crossing and the Tories are up in arms about it.

    Clearly they had no problem with them actually arriving here, but failing to arrive here was a real issue for them. So finally Red Boris the Marxist leader of Blue Labour is spurred into action as he blames Macron for everything along with anyuone else he can think of because accepting responsibility is not something Socialists can countenance.
