      Not that you’d know it but it’s snowing in the North of Scotland right now. Having said that the worst of the winds will affect the East of the country blowing right down the North Sea and towards the channel a storm surge appears likely and the Thames Barrier plus the continental equivalents might well have to be put to use.

      It is quite likely that snow or ‘wintery showers’ will affect the capital and to the media that means the entire country will be put into a state of panic.
      The joke about Southerners needing to stay at home and turn the heating up, Northerners you’ll need your big coat is perhaps well drawn with this storm..

    Two things of note in the news for me today…

    1. Not one lefty red rag including the BBC are running anything remotely connected to Global Warming this week.

    Couldn’t be anything to do with the fact that like most of the UK right now it’s bloody freezing our nuts off could it?

    The eco zealot nutters must be quivering in a corner somewhere wondering what’s going on!

    2. “Every girl has experienced rape culture at school”. Blimey they are really trying hard to get every male locked up are they not?

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree/article/b41fb362-6615-4e9b-950e-36859358e023

    A lot of girls have indeed suffered from a rape culture but not the “culture” that the BBC would wish to discuss I guess!

    For the record. I attended a boy’s only Grammar School for my secondary years and the only time we even saw a female was at the inter Boy’s Grammar – Girl’s High School annual Dance. Almost every boy I knew there was far too timid to even speak to a girl let alone try anything on!

    So maybe that’s the solution, total segregation again?

    Would solve a lot of problems!

    Except that the female girls would probably start to be hit on by the trans girls.

    So maybe we would need 3 or even 4 types of sex based schools, or maybe even more as I for one am losing the plot with how many genders we would need to consider.

      I remain curious as to the ‘Citizen’s Climate Assemblies’ currently being quietly set up (in every sense of the word).

      Not sure at how pervasive they are, but the deadline here is this weekend. Given near zero mention anywhere, or discussion, it seems pretty clear the system is rigged to install those who know about it and are keen to dominate.

      https://www.parliament.uk/get-involved/committees/climate-assembly-uk/about-citizens-assemblies/

      Nothing I see so far suggests anything other than a front for XR and BBC manipulation.

      “For the record. I attended a boy’s only Grammar School… Almost every boy I knew there was far too timid to even speak to a girl let alone try anything on!”

      I attended a ‘new era’ Comp. in the 80s with mixed boys and girls, and (very) mixed ability – there was no grammar school option in the county, sadly.

      It wasn’t the boys who were ‘interested’ in dating, or sex, not at 15/16, there were plenty of girls who were interested in boys though, and plenty dated older boys/young men (18-early 20s), with quite a few teen pregnancies.

      Girls generally mature younger than boys in my experience and watching my teenaged kids now (one boy, one girl) and their friends and classmates, nothing much seems to have changed.

      My son (16) gets loads of texts (and has had more than one ‘sext’) from interested girls, but other than a few brief dates, he’s much more interested in studying for his exams and playing online games than in girls. Some of his friends are utterly terrified of girls, if his little sister speaks to them they get all flustered and look like they want to hide. Like me, I expect my son’s interest in girls will probably take off a bit when he gets to Uni in a few years, but I can’t imagine him suddenly turning into some sex crazed maniac, it just isn’t in the genes.

      In comparison, my daughter (14) is constantly mooning about, ‘depressed’ that some boy she fancies at school isn’t paying her enough attention. Then if one of them does pay her some attention and sends her a text, or builds up the courage to speak, she instantly goes off him and has moved on to the next – it seems to be more about ‘scoring points’ than anything serious. From recollection, my sisters were like that too.

      So, I have to be honest, I don’t know who exactly is creating this ‘rape culture’, seems more a figment of the imagination than reality to me, but what do I know.

    Letter in the Telegraph today. Biden has been found out as Fraud. Not that the BBC will admit he’s been the worst president in history. Who elected him? Does he work for the Chinese or the Russians?

    It is indeed hard to keep giving Joe Biden the benefit of the doubt. The election was rigged, as we knew at the time.

    The evidence of 2020 election fraud is now overwhelming:

        You aren’t understanding this if that’s what you think. The squad simply don’t care if the party crashes and burns, they are trying to enact policies and spending which no future government or President will be able to stop. Obamacare was widely opposed by the people of America, but today it is still in existence despite the best efforts of the Trump Presidency to end it.

        If Biden can get his spending bill passed then he can get these programs on the statute books where the Republicans will not be able to reverse them.

        It’s like a conquering army getting into the enemy base only to find the self destruct sequence has been enabled with no way to stop it.

      This is all good stuff Marky. As I have been saying here, our poorly paid politicians are taking money out of the Middle East to bump up the poor pay and this is part of the consequence of that.

      When I explain this to several people even here on these forums they say that as long as they can save a penny every decade on politicians salaries they are quite happy for other countries to make up those salaries to get the things they want, and here is just another example, so smile you got what you paid for !

        I would say that money might be the basis of some jobs and people wouldn’t do those jobs unless paid well . But politics ? Some people go into a job( or career if you like ) for more than the money .
        A man of the cloth is the best example . I hope they are preaching , healing, giving succour and holding religious services because they feel it’s a calling, rather than doing it for the lucre .

          That is why you now have a Parliament full of hard line Marxists because it’s the Left who feel they have that vocation.
          The people who believe in free market economics are all out making as much money as they can – which is a hell of a lot more than politicians are paid.

          One of the things I learned in the management qualis I did was just how much those at the bottom of the pile underestimate the amounts their bosses are paid.
          The average director salary of a FTSE100 company is now £4 million.
          The average salary for a partner level solicitor in London is £325000.
          The salary of £80K for an MP is simply too low to attract decent people and while it might appear to be a lot of money to those at the bottom of the pile, to those even slightly higher up its far too low to be attractive, especially with all the downsides.

    ‘Emad Al Swealmeen died when a homemade device exploded shortly before the two minutes’ Remembrance Sunday silence.’

    Now – after the car killed those people – it seems he was a victim himself, killed by some unspecified ‘homemade device’.

    No inference at all that he was a Muslim terrorist with a bomb HE made which was fitted to HIS suicide vest.

    I have always considered that driving a bus in the capitol is
    not an easy job and the drives really do earn their corn.
    As for the striking Tube train drivers I would sack the lot
    and they could all be replaced in a day!
    It’s just about the easiest highest paid public manual job
    going. I reckon a 9 year old kid could learn to become a
    tube train driver in half a day. Basically all they have to do
    is to learn how to use the emergency brakes and open and
    close the doors, and follow the guide of any
    signals. And for this around £1000 a week is the going rate.And with overtime this can almost be doubled !!

    Considering terrorist attacks and stabbings where OUR people are MURDERED get one article for a couple of days on the BBC, I am amazed at what coverage they are giving to the Migrant boat.

    It seems one illegal immigrant who has the choice to risk crossing in a boat is worth 10 white lives to the BBC these days.

    If the agenda was to sort out the migrant problem, I might understand it. But I know from experience it is because they are the ultimate victims for the hand-wringing Lefties to virtue-signal that they are much more compassionate than everyone else. I suspect they have been waiting for it to happen.

    If it were otherwise, they would have made a big issue about the extremely high number of crossings which might have been stopped before this inevitable tragedy occurred. But they didn’t. They hid it.

    Yet again the BBC’s lies-by-ommission put blood on their hands. Hands which are still wet with the blood of those who died in Afghanistan because of Biden.

                The troll is also linked to that phenomenon where people need affirmation through that little ‘like ‘ box . I’d just prefer a ‘read ‘ box but it’s not important – it’s only the internet isn’t it ?

            Mohammed died and was buried. The Lord Jesus Christ was raised from the dead and ascended to His Father in heaven. His tomb was empty.

            “To these [the apostles] He also presented Himself alive after His suffering, by many convincing proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days and speaking of the things concerning the kingdom of God.” Acts 1:3

            “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

      Katie Razzall, the BBC’s new Culture Editor, says: “Culture is the window into our lives. It’s never been more entwined with politics, tech and the economy as it is now. At a time of great uncertainty for many in the arts, there’s never been a more vital moment to tell the cultural stories of our country in all its breadth and fascinating diversity. I can’t wait to get stuck in.”

      The question is though, will she, like Robert Spencer, tell us about the story so that we don’t have to read it all, or will she, like Maxicony, Marianna Spring’s alter ego, tell us what to think?

    Europe: The corrupt Judges exposed.

    In February 2020, the ECLJ published a report, that went viral, about NGOs and the judges of the ECHR, which revealed that at least 22 of the last 100 ECHR judges are former employees of seven foundations and NGOs, and that they have judged on numerous cases supported by their own organisation, in a blatant situation of conflict of interest. Among these private organisations, George Soros’ Open Society stands out because twelve of its employees have become judges in Strasbourg, and because it funds the other six NGOs in question, sometimes to a very large extent. The massive presence of judges from the same network shows the hold of large foundations and private NGOs on the European human rights protection system and calls into question its impartiality. The report raised a series of questions about judicial procedure and ethics, which were brought to the attention of the bodies of the Council of Europe.

    . . . .

    My comments:
    The BBC are in deep with ‘Open Society’. Soros is involved in many capers just below the horizon of mainstream politics. UN Climate Change, Global Pandemic (he helped fund the Wuhan lab), Control of main media (BBC and many others across the world are in the loop), Abortion and Euthanasia, Anti Family, Anti parent, Anti Child, Immigration across Europe are all subject to ‘ECHR Human Rights’ legislation which is used here in the UK as it has not been replaced.

    Sorus (without doubt) would have helped enable the hopeless BIDEN to be nominated (for Kamal Harris who is hopeless to be replaces by another (insert another left wing zealot), who will take US to full Socialist ’empire’ building. SOROS is a global DAVOS style socialist and will stop at nothing to influence any democratic outcome. And he was busy at the EU caught buying up the ‘impartial’ EU judges of the ECHR.

    We are not OUT of the EU Courts. Just remember we have left the EU but the BIG battle is to leave the ECHR. Its is tied up with UK ‘Human Rights’ legislation and has overruled all our own UK High courts for far too long. The big twist is that it affects ‘Northern Ireland’ annex which (EU claim) must include the ECHR rulings for everything – including the UK. The rulings extend into everything we voted to get OUT.

    The ECHR rulings are a EUROPEAN’ SUPREME COURT’ which will include (everything that matters) CO2 emissions, Climate predictions, Human Rights to Death, Abortion and Euthanasia and would (over time) abolish all UK rights to the MAGNA CARTA (so called Common Law) would also be binned, as it would conflict with EU rulings.

    Basically IF Boris agrees ‘signs us up’ to ECHR for a ‘Northern Ireland ‘agreement without ditching the ECHR clauses — then we have LOST our entire UK and English independence, and forced to comply with ‘daft’ EU rulings on everything they can dream up as a ‘law’.

    That is how cancerous the SOROS regime ‘Open Society’ is in the US, EU and UK. Its a global network of hidden influence.

    The good news is that they have been found out at the EU and exposed.
    The European based ECLJ are charity lawyers who fight the creeping extent of SOROS in Europe by removing or exposing the corrupt judges. Its a start, but not the end. The video is in French but as English subtitles. Many of the ECHR rulings are unfortunately be used by our own civil-service and ‘gold plated’ into English law. Human Rights lawyers enabling illegal immigration into the UK is one such problem as EU regulations (ECHR rulings) are still in place. The EU want us to abide by them, even though we have left.

    A success in exposing the SORUS corruption. As yet no clean up for the BBC or other ‘Common Purpose’ bods on payrole. Details: https://tinyurl.com/EU-Court-EU-judges-exposed

    Is it any wonder they’ll risk their lives to get here? Migrants can expect £40 a week cash, free mobiles, four-star hotels and lawyers to help their asylum applications

    The horrific disaster in the Channel has raised stark and difficult questions about why migrants are so desperate to reach Britain.

    Almost 26,000 are known to have made the hugely dangerous journey so far this year – though the true number may be higher.

    But just days before this week’s tragedy, a startling statistic had emerged.

    Junior minister Tom Pursglove was asked by home affairs committee chairman Yvette Cooper how many of these thousands of people had been returned to the Continent this year.

    ‘Five,’ came Mr Pursglove’s revealingly meek reply.

      And when all else fails, they have the ECHR Soros funded court decisions to fall back on.
      As long as Billy Bunter continues his wish that the UK should rejoin the EU, there will be no effort to remove the country from the stranglehold of the ECHR.
      It is a pre-requisite of the EU that all member countries shall also be members of the ECHR. On that basis alone the UK will not withdraw from the ECHR during this interim period before the communists take us back in.

    Speculative, needs must edition

    BBC: ‘Coronavirus variant fear sparks Africa travel curbs

    Not for those crossing the Channel it don’t.

    Times: ‘Varient halts travel to Africa

    Ah, I see. Travel to Africa, not travel from Africa, or wherever.

    Anyway, I’m sure others hereabouts have the migrant issue well covered – like an emergency paramedic foil blanket over an accident victim.

    Daily Express: ‘UK troops to patrol French beaches‘ – as a good Tudor historian, such as David Starkey, could tell you, the last time England administered Calais was way back in 1558.

    And as any WW2 historian could tell you, the last time British troops hit the French beaches was 1944.

    That great corporate industrial magnate Henry Ford might, however, dismiss history as “more or less bunk” and the otherwise atheistic denisons of Aldous Huxley’s distopian Brave New World tended to replace the word Lord – as in the expression Good Lord! or Year of Our Lord, with the blaphemous word Ford. Make of all that what you will.

    Mutant bug travel ban‘ says the Sun, – just me or would others with an imagination suddenly sense that most familiar sci-fi theme from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop? Ironically, this headline is juxtaposed beside a pic of that swarthy badly Sajid Javid exhibiting his typical fixed inhuman grim half-grin, looking the absolute rubber spitting image of a Doctor Who alien Sontaran – a race of belligerent and militaristic clones from the planet Sontar. Thank you, Tardis Wiki.

    So, what’s in the news?

    Madonna gets stuck under a bed‘ (Daily Star) my memory of the pop princess of the 1980s has always been entangled somewhat with that legendary talent scout’s pithy summation of Fred Astaire: “Can’t act, can’t sing, can dance a little.

    Disco beats, lavish MTV-styled music video productions and lashings of PR came to Madge’s rescue back in the day.

    What’s the old girl done now?

    Star sends internet into meltdown after she seemingly goes looking for lost pair of reading spectacles‘ – how funny, that’s just what happened to my great aunt Phylis – not the internet meltdown bit.

    The Daily Satyr report goes on: ‘Nothing says iconic global superstar better than a selfie of your 63-year-old jacksie sticking out from under your bed

    What are the logistics of taking a selfie bum shot?

    Pandemics, Climate Disaster, supply chain disruption, medical martial law… meanwhile The Sun spots a crisis on the horizon this reader or even our crisis-obsessed Labour Party hadn’t as yet envisaged: ‘I’m a Celeb in crisis‘ – if Madonna still ranks as iconic global superstar then this lot are almost C-list: ‘Richard out, Arlene and Naughty Boy on brink‘ – that’ll be Richard Madeley, 65, (retired hurt – as they say in cricket), Dame Arlene Phillips, 78 (on painkillers – she’s a judge off Strictly, in case you were wondering) and young blood DJ Naughty Boy, 36 (sought couselling over his mum’s health)

    A source said: “They can’t afford to lose any more big names”‘ – oh, how we laughed. For more on our sense of humour, see later.

    Looking at things in retrospect… How did rock n roll go so very geriatic?

    ‘”Get back” A film that puts the Beatles back where they belong‘ (Telegraph) – When I’m 64 is now a reflective a plea for lost youth.

    Robert Plant + Alison Kraus‘ (‘i’) – 73 & a mere 50-year old whippersnapper.

    Shhhhhush, you’ll scare grandad: ‘Assisted dying a step closer in Jersey‘ (‘i’) – who would have thought Brave New World would be pioneered in the Channel Islands of all places? Shush, like a good Tory, I was trying to circumvent all mention of the Channel.

    The ‘i’ newspaper makes me laugh as this most coronaphobic of titles at a time when they’d have us plebs all safely masked and padlocked indoors (like an Isis bride), bravely ventures to publish a travel special report: ‘Fear and hidden treasure in the former Isis capital‘ – and for some reason the acronym standing for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or ISIS has been sadly reduced to the state of having lost no less than three of its capitals – the S,I & S.

    Risking confusion with the ancient Greek goddess of healing and magic and the Oxford reserve team in the University Boat Race.

    I wonder whether Islamic Jihadist publications reduce their enemies to Uk and Usa? Mind you Arabic is written right to left, so that could be a factor.

    Nomenclature… or Nomenklatura as the Soviets used to say…

    NHS urged to scrap the term BAME‘ (Telegraph) – good old NHS, always concentrated on our improving our health. No more BAME, eh? And yet we’re all now supposed to wholeheartedly subscribe to: ‘Black Friday Speical‘ (Daily Mirror)

    Official: Cats are psychos‘ (Daily Star)

    And finally: ‘“Right-wingers have a better sense of humour than the Left“‘ (Telegraph) – needs must, I suppose.

    The power of Nigel Farage is shown by the fact that Lord Blunkett says that any attempt by either Labour or Conservatives to make it easier for migrants to enter the UK and claim asylum will put Nigel in No 10. Well we can all hope that this is how things turn out and that when he has the reins of power Nigel is able to put in place some proper centre right policies.
    We know that he would do his very considerable best but would the blob be able to thwart him? Unfortunately I suspect that it would. There are thousands of blobists in positionsof power, civil servants, media liars, charity bosses , local government officials and crucially the police and judges. There only a few hundred Nigel Farage MPs. The odds are heavily in the blob’s favour, they can fight a long drawn out battle of attrition and create chaos in all sorts of ways , as we see them doing on Brexit even now after five years, knowing allthe while that they get a chance to unseat Nigel after five years.
    The only thing which can break blob rule is massive sustained organised opposition to them by the silent majority. This might give Nigel the edge in what will be a prolonged struggle for power between the people and the unelected undemocratic blob.

      In an interview recorded a month ago for a BBC Radio Sheffield profile, Mr Blunkett admitted: “I fell in love with someone and they wouldn’t go public and things started to go very badly wrong in the summer, and then the News of the World picked up the story.”

      It was part of a brief mention of the home secretary’s clandestine affair with Kimberly Quinn, American publisher of the Spectator magazine, at the end of a 45-minute interview about his enthusiasm for poetry, Sheffield and walking in the Derbyshire countryside.
      https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2004/dec/13/immigrationpolicy.politics

      Without mentioning his estranged lover by name Mr Blunkett added: “I tried for three years to make something work. I haven’t spoken about it and I don’t intend to. And even in the biography that’s being written about me I’ve ensured that there’s as little as possible.”

      The interview, broadcast locally yesterday, kept the issue in the news as Labour MPs and ministers privately pondered their colleague’s prospects when two official reports into alleged misuses of his official perks are published.

    “A Kurdish church leader smuggled to Britain says he received death threats – for having left Islam for Christianity – while living in makeshift camps in northern France.

    The church leader, who did not wish to be identified, spent nine months living in camps outside the French cities of Calais and Dunkirk. He told World Watch Monitor that Kurdish Muslims in both camps antagonised him.

    “In Calais, the smugglers [saw] my cross [round my neck], and said: ‘You are Kurdish and you are a Christian? Shame on you,’” he recalled. “I said, ‘Why? I’m in Europe, I’m free, I’m in a free country.’ They said, ‘No, you are not free, you are in the Jungle. The Jungle has Kurdish rule here – leave this camp.’ The smugglers were from inside the camp, and were Kurdish. They said to me, ‘We will tell the Algerians and Moroccans to kill you.’”

    The church leader, who taught art in his home in Iraqi Kurdistan, as well as helping to lead a church there, said he received further threats in the camp outside Dunkirk. “They [set] fire [to] my tent,” he said.

    He said he moved from the so-called “Jungle” camp in Calais to the Grande-Synthe camp near Dunkirk after one of the people-smugglers told him, “You’re a Kurdish pastor? I’ve heard about you.”

      The idiosyncrasies and traits of every nationality are being demanded by them to be accepted by the rest of the World above all else. There’s not the room at the top of the pile let alone, enough money to support their efforts in achieving superiority.

    Funny how the spectator quickly polishes over the Blunkett affair …. “Kimberly Quinn, Mr Blunkett’s former lover, is the magazine’s publisher”

    Clearly, The Spectator has an interest to declare in the Blunkett affair. As is well known, Kimberly Quinn, Mr Blunkett’s former lover, is the magazine’s publisher. But we are confident that most impartial observers would agree with us that the Home Secretary’s alleged misuses of his position amount to little. There is no suggestion that Leoncia Casalme, Mrs Quinn’s Filipina nanny, was an improper person to enter the country; the issue is whether, with a little help from Mr Blunkett with her paperwork, she was able to achieve permanent residency in Britain a little sooner than she would otherwise have been able to do. As for Mr Blunkett’s use of the rail warrant — which he has admitted was wrong, and the cost of which he has already repaid — his offence was to stretch the rules governing one of many absurdly generous MPs’ perks. According to the rules, MPs are entitled to confer free rail tickets upon spouses, partners and homosexual lovers. It is clear that Mr Blunkett did count Mrs Quinn as his partner; the complication is that in being a married woman she officially counted as someone else’s partner.

    I think what people don’t realise about Macron is how he came to be in power.
    After the shocks of Trump being elected over Clinton and Brexit, the elites realised that the democratic process could no longer be relied on to produce the results they wanted. They saw the likelihood of Marine Le Penn being elected in France and the moved in a complete unknown in a panic in order to stop her, the result was the election of Macron.

    Since the elites decided who was going to rule us there have been more allegations of rigged elections, hardly a surprise given the evidence that they are being.

    All cultures are equal …

    U.S. officials are looking into reports that in the frantic evacuation of desperate Afghans from Kabul, older men were admitted together with young girls they claimed as ‘brides’ or otherwise sexually abused.
