Midweek 1 December 2021

For some reason the BBC decided to put out a 2 hour documentary about a ‘royal rift ‘. Unusually the Palace wasn’t granted a pre broadcast showing and there was the smell of injunctions in the air .Now there are suggestions that the piece was ‘toned down ‘to avoid further confrontation with the Royal Family . Perhaps the BBC isn’t so sure of itself after all?

    What is our feeble government doing about the ongoing coastal invasion ?
    IMHO they are spending most of the time looking for excuses while Al Beeb just takes the side of the invaders.
    We need a government that will defend us and a broadcaster that is pro Britain.
    Where is Nadine Dorries ?

      Lingchi (simplified Chinese: 凌迟; traditional Chinese: 凌遲), translated variously as the slow process, the lingering death, or slow slicing, and also known as death by a thousand cuts, was a form of torture and execution used in China from roughly 900 until 1905. It was also used in Vietnam and Korea. In this form of execution, a knife was used to methodically remove portions of the body over an extended period of time, eventually resulting in death.

    Survivor: I’m haunted by deadliest Channel crossing, “reports” the bBC


    In his wheelchairs, speaking softly, and still traumatised

    How lovley!

    That reminds me I must not renew by RNLI subscription


    • JohnC says:

      I was just going to post the same thing.

      As predicted, the BBC are keeping this story going for many days.

      These were people perfectly safe in France and who chose to risk the crossing and were attempting to get into the country illegally. The BBC NEVER mention those facts.

      Contrast with the BLM supporter mowing down 40 people and killing 5 in his SUV (which was gone in 2 days), Sasha Johnson whose story was dropped immediately we found out she was shot by blacks and the Sabina Nessa murder whose story was dropped as soon as we found out an Albanian immigrant did it.

      And of course the ongoing Muslim rape gang trial which never even made the front page as far as I am aware.

      The BBC are the most disgusting of double-standard hypocrites.

      An interesting part of this story is how they all had the telephone numbers of the British and French authorities. It seems we have a special number for them to call when they want to be picked up.

    • Doublethinker says:

      Agree about the RNLI donations , almost all our charities seem to have gone as Woke as Woke can be , Salvation Army, National Trust to name but two. The commercial sector is heavily infected too, eg Yorkshire Tea ( personally painful) , M&S, and of course most of our institutions, the police, civil service, RAF etc.
      We can do nothing about the madness in the government agencies but we could do something about charities and commercial businesses if only we had the same level of organisation that the far left does and organise boycotts by most of the silent majority. Unless we speak up collectively then we leave the field open to the noisey but well organised minority who are driving Wokism so successfully.


    • MarkyMark says:

      The first duty of the government is to keep citizens safe and the country secure. The Home Office has been at the front line of this endeavour since 1782. As such, the Home Office plays a fundamental role in the security and economic prosperity of the United Kingdom.

    Today watch 1A
    1 for the BBC Advent starts today – according to a beeboid presenter – who introduced the ‘bbc online choir ‘ which sang a Beatles song – very religious . Anyway about 15 minutes later a correction was issued to give the correct date for the start of advent – with a sneer attached .

    If this has been some Muslim thing I wonder if it had been treated with such flippancy ?

    2. Footy . The BBC loves girl footy . Apparently there is a girly World Cup – last night the England girl team won a game 20-0.
    Such a score indicates just one thing – it was not a serious competition .
    Yet the BBC celebrated this ridiculous score as though it was real – apparently it was a World Cup qualifier – joke .

    3 Today is still enjoying the new brand of Chinese virus and operation fear . In a week or two – when the medics discover it’s no worse than a cold ( maybe ) the BBC / blue labour will be shouting about ‘over reaction ‘ and wasted money and useless booster jabs . You can hear the tune now …

    4 American whitee star author apologises to black man she claimed raped her ( and wrote a book about it ) – you could hear that the BBC just didn’t want to talk about this tragedy at all.
    It has real trouble when one approved type comes up against another one ….

        7.42 Simon Jack: I’ve just got to say about our Advent calendar, which we started today on the first of December, we’re getting quite a bit of pushback from people saying Advent actually started on Sunday, not today, it’s got nothing to do with the first of December. Now that may well be true in terms of the religious holiday or the religious period, although I’ve never seen an Advent calendar, which is what we’re doing, start on the 29th of November. So we’re going to defend ourselves there.

        Is the transcript correct? Advent started on Sunday, which was the 28th.


        • JimS says:

          Craig at IsTheBBCBiased? has confirmed that the transcript is correct.

    If you felt that Douglas Murray’s ‘The Starage Death of Europe’ was good , then you will find ‘The Dying Citizen’ by Victor Davis Hansen even better. It is about how the ideals of America have been eroded over the past thirty years by an unholy alliance of Globalists and Far left ideologues and how they are resisting the challenge from populist leaders such as Trump. He goes on to map out where he thinks the USA will end up if this continues, basically an unrecognisable medieval shit hole where the majority live as serfs to the elite.

    BBC news online have a one track mind this morning: ‘Covid booster: Hospitals and pharmacies urged to ramp up rollout‘ – so reads the command from on high…

    Covid: Can the NHS boost the booster programme?‘ – is the question posed, presumably laying the ground for tomorrow’s answer in the negative.

    A booster is someone who supports a sports team, organisation, person, product, or place very enthusiastically. It can also be slang for shoplifing.

    Boosterism! Boris promises jabs for all by end of January‘ (Express)

    That aside I’m none too sure whether anything in the news this morning is really anything newsworthy that has actually just happened, rather than being the usual opinion, PR and fluff.

    One senses it is Ladys Day again in the press: ‘Is Guislaine another woman who pays for a man’s crimes?‘ asks Allison Pearson in the Telegraph.

    Seems a monsterous battalion of British women have invaded the Baltics.

    Political assault. Lizz Truss, in Estonia yesterday, took a tank much like Margaret Thatcher did…‘ (Times)

    England women 20 (twenty) Lativa 0 (ni)‘ (‘i’)

    Let me just repeat that score again like the BBC boosted the word booster in their headlines…

    20 – 0 England women thrash Lativa‘ (Metro) – call me a male chauvinist but that’s not competitive sport as I understand it. However, I do sense there are some fellas that would pay to watch a good thrashing.

    Girl’s on top, we wonder?

    Christmas drinks row is latest stand-off between Raynor and Starmer‘ (‘i’) – no love lost there at the Labour out-of-office Xmas Party.

    Ghislaine Maxwell was “no 2” in Epstein’s hierachy…‘ – says the ‘i’ almost regretfully.

    Golden girl takes charge at House of Zara. Why the fashion dynasty’s founder chose his youngest daughter as his sucessor’ (Telegraph) – nepotism?

    Holly’s in the lolly. Star’s deal to stay with ITV‘ (Daily Mirror)

    Breaking the trend of media female power fantasy…

    With no discernible talent on show, other than her status as pin up, our: ‘Leigh-Anne wows at premiere. Little Minx‘ (The Sun)

    The Guardian frets: ‘More than a quarter of UK bird species at risk‘ – I tend to pass by any report that kicks off with a statistic, however, judging by today’s assorted headlines it is the guys who are the endangered species.

    The ladies don’t always go for looks, they often prefer a bit of thinking woman’s hunk: ‘We meet Benedict Cumberbatch‘ – as the giveaway Metro insists we: ‘Get your daily showbiz fix‘ – well at least their frontpage isn’t boosting the booster… oh sorry, I misspoke too soon…

    Armycron. Troops brought in to help drive to get UK boostered

    Just my fevered imagination or has the Number 10 psyops team deduced the word jab sounds a bit too invasive and decided booster to be rather more palatable? The word vaccine seems to have fallen by the wayside. As does immunity.

    The miserablist Mirror breathlessly brings us last year’s news as a half-hearted throwaway secret Santa consolation present for Labour: ‘Exclusive. Boris Johnson and his staff have been accused of breaking Covid rules by enjoying crowded parties last year

    I’m not sure what the new puritans on the left are more disgusted by… Boris or the notion of parties?

    And the jokey little item at the end comes from our pink market-watching Financial Times: ‘Omicron crypto contagion. A little-known cryptocurrency has soared in price solely, it seems, because it shares the name of the new coronavirus strain

    I wonder, can you buy shares in that chocolate bar named Boost?

    On a less serious note the big sports story on the BBC
    website yesterday was England’s ladies football team
    thrashing Latvia 20-0. Now please don’t any of you send
    any facetious comments about your local boys under 13 team
    capable of beating Latvia 4-0 or the under 15’s beating
    England. Women’s sport has become the BBC’S cause celebre.
    They don’t cover on TV hardly any more top level men’s sport. So let’s give them a bit of slack about shouting from the roof about
    the 20-0. Now for something different. Well a little different.
    I watched the live game on Amazon Prime between Newcastle-
    Norwich. I have watched games on Sky and BT Sports but even
    on them I don’t think that every single advert featured black
    models or 100% black models. No real problem for me , it’s the
    world we live in now. BUT what do you think about this?
    There was an advert for a car ,with of course a black driver.
    Do you think that if the car was black in colour but had a
    white gloss bonnet like the black footballers have with their
    hair it would make a good selling point for the car? Advertising
    agencies , take note. My wife tells me that the white sheen is
    a fashion, really? The BBC don’t know what they are missing by not having commercial advertising. They could kill two birds with one
    stone. BIG BROTHER at the diversity department would be in a perpetual
    orgasmic state. And we wouldn’t have to pay
    the license tax!

      Did the car have tinted windows and space for a ‘9’ under the seat ? And a hi fi with which to share your ‘ culture ‘ homie ?


    • Rich says:


      Advertising at the moment, especially on ITV, seems to suggest that minorities in our community need to be “represented” before parting with their hard-earned cash, that they need to see someone of a similar hue or who shares a similar lifestyle before buying a car or sofa, shopping in a supermarket or using a bank.

      This advertising seems to me to be suggesting that many minority groups purchase products for reasons that could be considered discriminating, not necessarily that inclusive at all, for reasons that seems to be predominately based on the colour of their skin, their religion or on their lifestyle.

      Whilst the majority of the population are expected to remain colour-blind and accepting of alternative cultures, it suggests to me that those who believe themselves to be ‘marginalised’ in reality expect not to be treated equally but to actually receive preferential treatment. They must ‘feel’ accepted, their choices must be respected, their demands must be met, even when buying a burger or a beer, chocolate or a car, even when celebrating Christmas. Who knew this Christian festival was so widely celebrated amongst the South-East Asian community?

      Imagine if as a white heterosexual male I demanded the same type of ‘respect’? If I was shallow and bigoted enough to make my buying choices based solely on my ‘identity’? I would rightly be labelled a bigot, xenophobic, homophobic and racist. Although on the plus side, if I did choose to do this, it would save me a fortune this Christmas.

    So Trump was right about not appeasing China and not thinking China will become a liberal democratic state if we just give it all our business, technology and money….so says the Today programme.

    Right about the Russia hoax, right about the Chinese virus…and of course when he shut his borders before anyone else to stop covid and was denounced as a mad racist for doing so he was right…if you believe in shutting borders for this as the BBC ironically does with covid.

    Maybe he was also right about the fake news media and ‘The Beauty’. Well..yeah…he was…though The Beauty is still lobbing mud as he departs…..


    ‘Of course the casus belli for the attempted insurrection on January 6th, the “stolen election” – which of course wasn’t stolen. ‘

    Hmmmm….an ‘attempted insurrection’? Really? Just some rowdy tourists weren’t they? Where were the guns, the bombs, the killings, the civil war around the country?[oh…yeah…that’s the BLM/Antifa mobs whom the BBC ignores] Attempted insurrection my arse.

    And stolen election? Well yeah…it was….4 years of pounding with the Russia Hoax, the Big Lie, to try and drag Trump down, 90% of the media working to smear Trump[including the BBC], social media platforms shutting out Trump supporters and Trump himself, and The Swamp colluding with the Democrats to steal the election.

    Hell yeah….the election was stolen…it was vastly unfair and corrupt…the BBC et al worked hand in hand with the Russians to derail the US election and to destabilise the US political system….it worked.

    Love to see Trump come back…and I suspect many Amercans might like that too. The BBC says he is divisive…but he’s not…it’s the left’s reaction to him that is divisive…instead of accepting the result of the election and deciding to work with him or at least responding in a sane, calm and measured way they reacted in a massively hostile and uncooperative way…from the start proclaiming he wasn’t legitimately President…lol…that he ‘stole the election’ with Russian help…which we know was that Big, Big Lie….and trying to block every piece of legislation, policy or appointment Trump wanted to put in place.

    The Democrats and their allies polarised politics to a massive extent…they made American politics unworkable for 4 years and they distracted government with endless attacks, the biggest being the Russia Hoax, and kept the Administration from concentrating on actual government….and the media, the BBC as well, played their part in that with their baseless, divisive and polarised attacks on Trump.

    There should be an inquiry into how the BBC tried to corrupt a US election….the Russia allegations were a hoax, a lie…but the BBC’s interference was real and had consequences. Head should roll.

    The Today prog pounced on government minister with information from stolen documents…documents stolen from Sage….the BBC of course told us they were ‘leaked’ but they were stolen….they also selectively quoted and dramatised the stolen docs.

    Apparently ‘Omicron may require ‘very stringent response” and ‘officials should prepare now for a “potentially significant” wave of infections’….and our immunity may not cope with the variant.

    All sounded very dramatic and in need of immediate and radical emergency measures to stop us being overwhelmed by a wave of death across the country.

    Hmmm…turns out not so much.

    First, of course, who stole the documents and passed them on to the BBC? Why did they do that? Clearly someone trying to force the government into a course of action that that person wants…and the BBC also wants. Mishal Husain pressing and pressing for masks everywhere and more restrictions on movement and gatherings.

    This is the BBC and friends trying to decide government policy and using stolen documents, carefully selected and selectively quoted, to pressure the government down one course of action…this is the BBC acting as a lobby group rather than a news organisation[so what’s new?]

    But…when you come to look at the BBC web report things get a lot murkier and uncertain. The headline shouts at you with a dramatc, sensationalist line…

    ‘Covid: Omicron may require ‘very stringent response’, say Sage scientists’


    But…read on and nothing is quite that clear…and anyway it is for government to decide policy using all informaton and considerations, economic, social, practical as well as health, not just Sage or indeed one Sage member.

    Turns out ‘The impact of the Omicron variant on the UK is “highly uncertain” ‘ …the BBC goes on…‘ it is “highly likely” that Omicron can escape immunity caused by previous infection or vaccination “to some extent”. ‘…..hmmm…there’s that weasily phrase…’to some extent’…which is a highly flexible phrase….could be tiny or a huge extent….we just don’t know….but the BBC opts to imply the worst.

    So…not know how serious the variant is but so far indications are that it is nowhere near as bad as other variants[and Delta turned out to be fairly mild], they don’t know how infectious it is and they don’t know if our immunity from vaccines will stop it.

    But let’s close the country anyway…….and on that principle of just in case precautions….we don’t know if China will invade, we don’t know what they will do when they get here and we don’t know if our army can resist…so let’s just nuke them now!

    Twitter pushes this at me a story from Nov 24
    US Alice Sebold’s memoir, ‘Lucky,’ pulled as she apologizes to man wrongly convicted of her rape
    who spent 16 years behind bars for the crime, eight days after his conviction was overturned

    Her 1999 memoir “Lucky” revisited the 1981 rape she suffered when she was a freshman in college,
    Her memoir may have indirectly helped vindicate Broadwater. ‘Lucky’ was being adapted into a film when discrepancies between the memoir and the first script adaptation prompted executive producer Tim Mucciante to question the story.

    Anthony Broadwater (black guy) was exonerated from this rape conviction,
    Alice Sebold apologized,
    saying: “I will continue to struggle with the role that I unwittingly played within a system that sent an innocent man to jail.”

    Funny how when women and Socialist Neo Nazi groups are talking about the safety of women, they only ever want to focus on attacks made by White males, and when attackers are from an ethnic background – which appear to be the majority, they simply don’t want to know and pretend they either never happened or to use the attack whilst ignoring the ethnicity of the attacker completely and insinulating he was one of the hated White males.

    In this instance a dangerous sexual predator who under any reasonable system should have been deported back to Pakistan was simply let lose to attack again. You can imagine the outcry if this had been a White male, as it is the media is largely silent about it.

      He led an extremist network linked to violent jihadists, including one of the killers of soldier Lee Rigby in 2013.

      Choudary, 51, has served less than half of his sentence and will complete the rest under strict supervision. Up to 25 measures to control him have been prepared, the BBC understands.

      His release from prison comes approximately four months early because of time spent bailed on an electronic tag before his conviction.

    In the Soviet Union we had:
    – A media which regurgitated the Party line and was widely understood to be lying
    – A culture of fear about speaking your mind in public because wrongthink was punished both socially and criminally
    – Cultural and creative stagnation resulting from…
    …state and self-censorship
    – Mass scale indoctrination of children with radical unscientific ideologies through the education system
    – A fake “consensus” which went largely unchallenged for fear of losing your job and social stigma
    – People pretending to believe things in…
    …public that they vehemently opposed in private
    – The framing of dissenters as undermining the safety of others
    – Underground groups which met to discuss all of this in secret (think WhatsApp groups but with vodka)

    Good thing the Soviet Union is no longer with us, eh? ROFL

    of the lack of diversity in the England team. In fact was there
    any diversity? Is that allowed in the UK we now live in?

    From the Telegraph…doubt the BBC will be rushing this into the headlines anytime soon…

    ‘Covid passports are ineffective at reducing infection and may even be sending out false messages that being vaccinated means a person cannot spread the virus, experts advising Spain’s government have found.

    Specialists on Spain’s inter-regional Covid committee concluded that evidence from European countries shows such passports for entry to bars and other leisure facilities is not reducing transmission levels.

    “In European countries where [the system] is being used, cases are rising significantly, although it is true that their level of vaccination is much lower than in Spain,” an internal report seen by the newspaper El País said.

    More than 90 per cent of Spain’s target population has been vaccinated but the report says the impact of Covid passports is negligible. Eight of Spain’s 17 regions are now using the system in some form.’

    On GB News right now, they are going on about the shortage of council/affordable housing.
    So far I’ve heard nothing about the housing needed for the legal and illegal immigration numbers each year which must be in the hundreds of thousands.
    All need housing.
    It’s all ‘not enough houses’ and no ‘too many people’

    After the break he (Liam Halligan) says he has some viewers emails. I wonder if any regarding immigrant numbers will be read out.

    5 minutes later edit.

    No mention of the incoming hundreds of thousands of migrants.


    • MarkyMark says:

      “If you look at the boat load coming into Spain at the moment, they all sub-saharan men. And if we say you can come in this year, then more people will come next year and more the year after.

      Yvette Cooper: No that’s what I said, because the government has said…

      At least Sturgeon can take comfort that she is not alone here, with both Sir Bob Geldof and Stan Collymore thought not to have taken refugees despite their own promises. In fact, even the Archbishop of Canterbury is yet to house a refugee family despite pledging to let them stay in a cottage on the grounds of Lambeth palace. However, a Lambeth Palace spokesman says that they ‘hope to have an update soon’ and insist that the offer ‘still stands’.
      It’s been six months, Nicola Sturgeon. Where are your refugees? {spectator mar2016 paywall}

      I blame T Bliar totally. What did we do to him in his formative years to deserve this punishment?

      I have to believe that he took office when he viewed the UK public with utter revulsion and contempt.

      For anyone to maintain a policy of ferrying in millions of third-worlders and savages by the million but not attach equal importance to bolstering the housing stock/hospitals and all the rest of the social services is evidence as far as I am concerned of that revulsion. We now, daily, meet the third-worlders on the spiral down to their level and the levels they came from.

    Covid press conferences
    Neil Oliver’s rule
    “it’s not about,what they say it’s about”

    So when Boris and the MSM are saying
    “OMG ! new variant we need tighter measures”
    … what are they REALLY saying ??

    The truth is
    #1 Covid cases have failed to drop
    so Boris is in search of magic measures.
    #2 It’s Winter ..so doing noting means cases with automatically increase anyway.

    Hull hospitals have now closed to visitors
    because “non-Covid patients keep getting infected with Covid”
    and the hospital says it’s the visitors.

    My neighbour who is a lefty told me the hospital’s bio security measures are rubbish.
    “I was able to walk off the street press a button ..say I’m Mr Smith’s son and they let me into the ward”
