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?

    CBBC Channel, Tuesday 8 June 2021

    In a segment about vaccine approval for 12 to 15 year olds, a contributor claimed that the Pfizer vaccine is “100% safe”. This has been removed from the online article and video: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/57435861

    The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has said:

    “We have carefully reviewed clinical trial data in children aged 12 to 15 years and have concluded that the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective in this age group and that the benefits of this vaccine outweigh any risk.

    “We have in place a comprehensive safety surveillance strategy for monitoring the safety of all UK-approved COVID-19 vaccines and this surveillance will include the 12- to 15-year age group.

    “No extension to an authorisation would be approved unless the expected standards of safety, quality and effectiveness have been met.

    “It will now be for the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) to advise on whether this age group will be vaccinated as part of the deployment programme.”

    Germany: Lockdown for the unvaccinated. Vaccinations could be made mandatory by February.

      Luckily, here, Sky has a panel. Of experts. Apparently.


      • JohnC says:

        That’s odd because reading the BBC report, we know absolutely nothing about it. There seems to be a very good chance we will all die a terrible death.

        That’s why we are all in grave danger and vaccine jabs, lockdowns + wearing masks everywhere should be compulsory.

        I admit the jump from one to the others is a little tenuous to my eye.

      I just had a two day stay at a small private hotel in Derby on business.

      I was having a pint in the bar on the first evening which was fairly busy with no-one masked up at all…

      Then a late-ish middle-aged couple entered, both wearing those awful designer masks that look like storm trooper garb, they stood about 2 meters back from the bar and ordered drinks still wearing their masks. The man placed cash on the bar instead of handing it to the barmaid and stepped back while she worked out the change. She put the change on the counter at which point the man donned a glove stepped forward and hastily picked it up.

      Then, still masked the couple scurried to an empty table and sat down, lifting their masks to sip their drinks then pulling them back down.

      After a few minutes of watching them, a bit bemused, a group of six more entered the bar and greeted them. All were wearing similar masks.

      A crazy scene ensued while all six got their drinks in much the same fashions the first two then joined the first two at the table, all still masked.

      Then like a miracle they all pulled their masks off and resumed normal human behaviour sitting side-by-side.

      It was the most bizarre thing I can recall. I was actually struggling to stop myself from laughing out loud.

      I had to ask myself that if they were so much in dread why the hell did they arrange to meet six other people in a crowded pub?

      Something very strange has happened to the human race in the last few months. It’s almost ritualistic!

      Perhaps the display was an appeasement to the Gods of Covid or something?

      Merkel, face like a bulldog licking P$ss of a nettle, what a lovely gift the outgoing Hitler is giving her people.

      I added a comment to the BBC HYS which I thought was fine but they removed it and I got this email.
      Thank you for contributing to the BBC web site. Unfortunately we’ve had to remove the content below because it contravened one of our House Rules.

      ‘How an earth can someone with any type of brain argue against watching fellow human beings being forcibly vaccinated. People like you? This kind of thing is happening in the world right now, how easy it is for you, to be so scared of something so little, that your willing to change the whole of society. History will not be kind’

      Tell me how is that offensive and whys it been removed?

    “Inside the American Redoubt: Trump voters building a new state | Times Documentaries
    In the Times’ first feature-length documentary Alastair Good travelled to north Idaho to investigate whether a movement to build a home for conservative christians (sic) and unhappy Trump voters is being exploited by extremists planning for secession.”

    Interesting documentary from the Sunday Times who attempt to work their way progressively and incrementally toward contempt.

    At the very end, the reporter discusses the position with the Sheriff from Spokane. He offers, as evidence to condemn, the rules of a previous attempt at isolating the ‘far right conservatives’. Best part about it is, he cites the strict Christian criteria upon which they historically operated. ST reporter failed to mention that the same stuff virtually verbatim, is preached daily (and particularly on a Friday) in every City and most large Towns in the UK. Take the video from the last seven minutes. Hint, when the two talk ‘Bible’ read Quaran.

    I am indebted to a friend who unexpectedly and without invitation offered the following example of BBC bias earlier today.

    At PMQs, Starmer attacked Boris over last year’s Christmas Party.

    The BBC featured Starmer’s key questions.
    My friend was watching it live and said that Boris had a very funny reply. But when shown on BBC news, the best part of the reply was drowned out by Laura Doomsberg speaking over it and thus rendering it unintelligible and making Boris’s reply seem weaker.

    A good example of the insidious deliberate perpetual bias of the BBC.

    PS 6 pm news update. Laura Doomsberg is STILL droning on about the no 10 party last year. Pathetic.


  5. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    On GB News there was a bloke on from black history or something complaining about everything he was calling cultural appropriation.

    It got me thinking.
    If a white person stabs and kills somebody, would they be charged with murder or cultural appropriation.
    Which is the more serious of the two?

  9. JohnC says:

    The interview of Trump by Farage was a newsworthy event. It was a global exclusive. A google search shows all newspapers have covered it – even The Guardian.

    Yet the impartial and unbiased BBC have refused to report anything about it at all. They are conspicuously absent from the search results.

    This is an absolute disgrace. They are like spiteful schoolboys – it’s pathetic beyond words. Just who do these people think they are – sucking at the public funding teat as they do ?. And why is nobody asking them why ?. Where the feck are OFCOM ?.

    If nothing else, it should make everybody wonder what else they don’t report just because they don’t want to.


    • digg says:

      GB News + Farage + Trump gave the BBC an unholy pasting in viewing figures while it was broadcast I read so presumably there will be lots of punctured ego’s at the BBC.


      • Fedup2 says:

      • Doublethinker says:

        We should also remember that the viewing figures report are only an estimate of those who watch the broadcast live? Many people watch the channel on digital catch up. So I think that the numbers reported can be multiplied several fold .


  10. digg says:

    All of the usual lefty media are cooing about Barbados throwing out our offensive Royal Family and escaping from 200 years of “Brutal Slavery” as Channel 4 put it.

    Then I read that China is already moving in with “investment” and military training.

    So for a time the “Elite” in Barbados will get personally rich from Chinese back-handers then the Country will turn into a Chinese vassal state and the ordinary people, who will get nothing from the break with the UK will find out what “Brutal Slavery’ really means.

    I enjoy GB News, BUT BUT BUT where the hell have they got some of the presenters from with such godawful voices ?

    Currently Mark Steyn (standing in for Nige) is on, and his drone is terrible. Another one is the money man Liam Halligan – he thinks his audience are all bloody deaf, the woman Mercy Muroki is a stunner to look at but jeez her stuttering and lack of being able to pronounce words on her auto text is astonishing – she couldn’t say Mar-a-Lago the other day. I could go on.

    • Deborah says:

      You have to get used to Mark Steyn and probably turn down the volume a couple of notches but it is worth persevering. I am most taken with Dan Wooten and Colin Brazier, well worth watching.
      I am also fond of Benjamin Butterworth who comes from the left, but the other two on his panel shout him down so much that I feel like a mum who wants to protect him. But he has a cheeky grin suggesting he is only saying things to tease.

    The Oxford University epidemiologist and co-author of the Great Barrington Declaration, which called for focussed protection of vulnerable groups over the Covid-19 lockdowns, joins columnists Allison Pearson and Liam Halligan on the latest episode of their weekly podcast, Planet Normal, which you can listen to (below).

    Should we be panicking over the new omicron variant, which saw MPs strengthen rules on travel, mask-wearing and self-isolation? “No,” Professor Gupta tells the podcast. “We should never have been panicking.”

    The Moronic Varient
    Planet Normal Audio player (59‘:59”) | 2nd Dec 2021

    In addition the Podcast she states that /Natural immunity is vastly superior to “Vaccines”.
    The Great Barrington Declaration is important as its for Doctors primarily to object to being ‘forced’ to administer ‘Vaccines’ which have not been tried and tested and does not allow any natural immunity to evolve. She also mentions the false ‘computer modelling’ by the likes of Neil Fergusson and his media assembled climate forecasters of doom.

    She makes all the points clearly. Expert in her field.

    Great Barrington Declaration… (Doctors and Medics can sign only)


    • Philip_2 says:

      Following on from that… Who are the “vaccines” made by?. The usual US ‘techno-perps’ of Climate Change hustlers!

      Bill Gates and the rush to sell vaccines
      iBioNTech, CureVac and Moderna, the companies developing mRNA vaccines for Covid-19 were all in the cancer cure business, backed by deep-pocketed investors prepared to invest in unprofitable ventures for the long term. BioNTech alone disclosed cumulative net losses of €336.5million as it went public on Nasdaq in 2019. Having failed to bring any of the cancer therapies to market, all three firms became interested instead in repurposing them as vaccines for infectious diseases.



      • Banania says:

        Apparently Dr Koetzee in S. Africa, who identified the “omicron variant”, has been astonished by the huge fuss made about it in Britain, and has said it is nothing to worry about. Of course, that doesn’t suit our government, who wish us to be kept in a perpetual state of fear and dependence.


  19. pugnazious says:

    Compare and contrast.

    Michael Vaughan is lynched by the BBC for totally unproven comments he is clamed to have made 12 years ago before he joined the BBC.

    Asian Amol is totally exonerated for his extreme anti-Royalist republican comments he made, and has been proven to have made, and sails on in his BBC career without a concern in the world…even being given a high profile documentary about the Royals in which he continued to spin anti-Royal tales based on lies and Meghan Martyrdom.

    ‘Mr Rajan, a vocal republican, went on to make the controversial documentary, with the BBC claiming his anti-monarchy views had no influence on the programme.

    The BBC stuck by him, saying that – in common with all corporation journalists – he had left his opinions at the door when he joined as media editor.

    It went on to air the documentary, infuriating the royal household which believed programme-makers had failed to offer them a full right of reply ahead of broadcast while giving an on-camera role to both the Duchess of Sussex’s lawyer and biographer.

    A BBC spokesman said: This article predates Amol’s work at the BBC.

    “Once journalists join the BBC, they leave past views at the door.

    “Amol is an experienced BBC journalist who reports on all of the topics he covers in an impartial way and in line with the BBC’s editorial guidelines.

    “All BBC current affairs output is required to be impartial.”’

    Surely Michael Vaughan also leaves his past views, still completely unproven, at the door when he joined the BBC?

    One rule for some, another rule for others at the BBC.

    Just a word of advice for those looking to do a little ‘prepping’ for winter.

    If you have an open fire then make sure you have enough fuel for winter.

    Long range forecasts suggest it’s going to be a colder winter and potentially a long one too.

    If Russia decides to invade Ukraine and gas supplies are interrupted the lights are going to go out, as the UK now hsa now gas production nor storage. You can prepare for this if you might just be able to keep you and yours warm this winter.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Thoughtful – completely agree . Candles – spare batteries – lanterns- camping kit on standby … fuel is also a good idea


      • Scroblene says:

        Solid fuel prices have taken a huge hike as from last year, to appease the ‘smokeless’ lobby.

        The modified stuff works OK, but it damn well should if the public have to pay over 10% more for the privilege of funding a weak, spineless government’s baseless green policy!

        We’ll be rubbing two sticks together for a fire if the useless greens in No 10 get their way.


    • pugnazious says:

      Doesn’t matter if Russia cuts off gas or not…you couldn’t afford it anyway judging by the way this government and the climate lobby act…

      ‘Raise tax on gas to reflect cost of climate change, ministers told ‘

      Sheer arrogance and ignorance of these people is astonishing….just no idea or no care for the real consequences as they make heating unaffordable or unworkable…the ‘green’ stuff will not replace gas in any effective or affordable way whatsoever.

      The BBC and Labour always like to go on about fuel poverty and the choice of ‘heat or eat’…but always forgets to mention that it is green policies that are now the main cause of the problems….but anyway…as 5 Live was telling us this morning…just get yourself a couple of extra jumpers and you’ll be fine [and switch to ITV as you’l be able to do jumping jacks during the ad breaks to keep warm]….though not sure how that keeps the damp out of a house that’s now unheated.

    The trial that is liberal America’s worst nightmare: When TV star Jussie Smollett said he’d been almost lynched by racist Donald Trump fanatics, it led to outrage. Now he’s in the dock accused of faking it all to get a pay rise


    The actor, who starred with Michael Fassbender in Alien: Covenant, is accused of lying to police after orchestrating a fake hate-crime against himself. The two ‘attackers’, now giving evidence against him, aren’t a pair of redneck racists but two black Nigerian men who pumped iron with Smollett at the gym.

    Smollett, 39, faces six counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly making false reports to police. He denies the charges.

    A detective testified that Smollett claimed at least one of the attackers had been white but, after learning the brothers had been arrested the following month, changed his story and described the man as ‘pale-skinned’.

    The officer said Smollett later said of the brothers: ‘It can’t be them, they’re as black as sin.’

    The comic also ridiculed Smollett’s claim that he’d gone out at 2am in minus 16c temperatures just to buy a sandwich from Subway and that his assailants had been wearing red MAGA caps in a city as virulently anti-Trump as Chicago.

    He could have also mentioned a string of other suspicious details — why Smollett was still wearing the noose around his neck when police arrived some 40 minutes after the alleged attack, why he was initially reluctant to give police his mobile phone and why, moments before the assault, he decided to ring his manager, Brandon Moore, neatly providing the actor with a witness to his verbal exchange with the two thugs.

    Yorkshire prepare clear out of up to SIXTEEN members of staff – including coach Andrew Gale and cricket director Martyn Moxon – as county club wields the axe in the wake of Azeem Rafiq affair

    and yet:

    Azeem Rafiq had gambling debts that ran into THOUSANDS paid off by the Professional Cricketers’ Association – and they also provided counselling for the ex-Yorkshire star who criticised the body in legal battle over racist abuse

    Azeem Rafiq had his gambling debts paid off by the Professional Cricketers’ Association — and the players’ union also arranged for him to have counselling.

    Former Yorkshire off-spinner Rafiq has been critical of the PCA for failing to support him in his legal battle with the county over racist abuse, and in his emotional testimony before a parliamentary committee last month he claimed the union had not backed his case for financial reasons.

    Sportsmail has learned, however, that Rafiq previously benefited from financial and emotional assistance from the PCA’s charity arm, the Professional Cricketers’ Trust (PCT), which was set up to provide medical and pastoral support for current and former first-class cricketers.

    Rafiq has been open about many of his youthful indiscretions and, in his parliamentary evidence, said that as a young player at Yorkshire he had often drunk heavily with team-mates to fit in.

    The 30-year-old also issued a heartfelt apology and met Jewish community leaders to say sorry last month after the emergence of anti-Semitic messages he posted on social media in 2011.

    Alec Baldwin admits career could be over after fatal shooting

    Farage’s global exclusive interview with Trump or it’s content didn’t warrant anything on the BBC, but Baldwin gets yet another lengthy article on the unbiased al-beeb.

    This ones a cracker. His spiteful-schoolboy Lefty side is peeping through the cracks. Now he claims he pulled the hammer back, let go and the gun went off without pulling the trigger. He conveniently fails to mention whether his finger was actually on the trigger – though it would be a remarkably strange shot for a movie for a gunfighter to cock his gun without his finger on the trigger. And the director told him where to point it so that wasn’t his fault either.

    Total BS concoted with his lawyer.

    The BBC now seem to be trying to infer whoever sold the real bullet is at fault.

    We make our own luck in the world Alec. Yours finally caught up with you.

    From what I’ve read, my own opinion is that the gun was used by crew members for a bit of gun-slinging fun -maybe with a few beers – and it still had a bullet in it when they had finished. Anyone who has been in the USA knows how casually they regard pistols. That is exactly why the responsibility lies with every person who picks it up to check it is clear. Alec MUST have been taught this – it’s the first thing they teach everybody along with never point it at anyone else.

    Only 30% turned out . Why bother – it’s either the bad blue labour lot or the really bad red labour lot . I’m sure the same pattern will run with the next two blue labour seats .

    Still waiting for this to happen, but it definately should have be now

    bBC interviewed Gordon Brown


    The ex-prime minister said the United Kingdom risked “unravelling” due to Brexit and the “narrow nationalism”.. etc etc etc

    Its from 2019, I guess we may have to wait another 50years, could might, maybe as the bBC favourite scaremongering words

    Interesting sort of, when you search the bbc webshite for Brexit Survival, all the crap that never happened over the last few years 🙂

    Mr Johnson to Mr T
    The terribly confusing edition

    The Daily Mirror this morning presents us a: ‘Message to Tories‘ – would this be like one of those old timey letters to Santa that kids used to stick up their chimney, at about this time of year?

    Make your mind up on Christmas‘ – is the Labour-endorsing Mirror’s clear and unambiguous alternative policy plea.

    It is all very well pointing to: ‘Confusion and chaos as minister contradict each other over party advice‘ – but what’s the opposition plan? By the way, the party advice in that headline isn’t political party advice… let me throw the dictionary at you… it refers to the government giving us advice on seasonal social gatherings of invited guests, typically involving eating, drinking, and entertainment. Which is apparently where we seem to stand nowadays.

    Reading between the lines one gleans our Left-leaning opposition critique would appear to consist of wanting more stringent lockdowns. Although I suppose it sounds less kill-joyish to accuse the Tories of confusion.

    Boris blasts Bah humbug cancel Xmas brigade‘ (Express)

    The damage is already done…

    Pantos are doomed… oh yes they are‘ (Daily Star)

    We digress… Remember Mr. T of the A-Team? The gold chain and gold medallion bedecked actor B. A. Baracus, styled like something we would come to recognise as a proto-Rap artist, well he used to advertise the former Marathon bars (“Snickers” as US cultural hegemony spread, preparing the ground for BLM) on the UK television back in the ’80s: “Stop your jibber-jabber, fool!

    The Mirror may attack the Tories over mixed messages but their frontpage depicts: ‘Booster Mr Johnson has his jab yesterday‘ – I think Number 10 would consider that good positive coverage. Mr Johnson as a form of address is rather more reverential than Boris typically gets from the BBC.

    As for the jabber-jibberish photo shot… black nurse (natch) for all we know that was saline – but that’s certainly not what the Mirror is salty about. They presumably wanted a clear forthright ban on your work and or friends and family Xmas parties.

    There’s no official Labour quote from Starmer but this semi-attributed statement made me chuckle: ‘One pub boss said: “It’s terribly confusing”‘ – I’d steer clear of his hostelry, he probably feels the need to phone some civil servant for advice every time his draught beer barrel needs changing or someone asks to use the dartboard.

    Two pints and a packet of crisps, please. “Hello, may I speak to the Government?” – I’m reminded of a somewhat obscure Monty Python sketch – sorry, no camp lumberjacks or pet shop parrots, I’m afraid – this one featured some kerffle aboard a Zeppelin causing several Pickelhaube-wearing Germans to fall from the sky subsequently crashing through the roof of a tavern. “Telephone the Government!” demanded the Teutonic barmaid of Mine Host, alarmed at the sudden random arrival of all those WW1 uniformed officers. “But Heidi, liebchen, this IS the government!

    The giveaway Metro, formerly the commuter’s friend, now relishes the smack of firm government: ‘Maskless forced to pay up. 152 passengers fined 125 thrown off…‘ – not from moving buses, trains or Zeppelins, one hopes?

    Their report is completely Pravda-ish in tone: ‘The figures will cheer millions of travellers respecting the rules

    Collaboration. The world’s hungry for it‘ – that’s the frontpage advertising copy from the FT promoting SABIC, the Saudi Basic Industries Corporation, a chemical company, and a front for their State-owned petroleum oufit – here promoting some globalist utopian vision or other.

    Saudi Arabia agrees to raise oil supply after US charm offensive. White House pressure pays off‘ – is the globalist climate change alarmist FT’s rather brazen headine.

    Hamilton criticises Saudi LGBT stance‘ (Telegraph)

    Now I’m confused. How about that pint?

      “Hello, may I speak to the Government?”

      A senior naval officer told me that when he had been a junior naval officer he had received a posting notice that he wasn’t happy with.

      He phoned the number on the notice and found that was talking to a very junior ranking civil servant, who refused to withdraw the notice. He said that he wasn’t happy and that he would complain to the Admiralty. The junior civil servant said, “Sir, WE are the Admiralty!” and put the phone down on him.

            Nope. The blue part you can see is where the needle connects to the syringe. Caps are much wider and longer than that. Perhaps you shouldn’t believe everything you saw on Facebook.


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      I’ve had a trawl through various (random) websites featuring nurses giving injections. Out of 18 unique photos, the nurse was coloured in 14 of them, and the victim patient was White in 16 of them. The images were suplied by Getty in 12 cases.

    When Encoch Powell’s constituent said that the black man would get the whip hand I am sure they thought that it would be the black man running things.

    It seems to me that we are now more like those folks on a sugar plantation. Some rich white guys are living in a nice house at the top of the hill and they are making reluctant black men whip-weilding overseers, driving the poor white man further down the hill to make more room for more, imported, overseers.

    This three-tier system is how the miltary has always been organised. It is however possible for those in the ranks to become NCOs, it is possible for NCOs to become officers.

    The beauty of the new order is that the lowest rank can never be an overseer and an overseer can never live in the big house. It is impossible for the lowest rank to complain because the sins of their fathers are visited upon them – they are racist. The people in the big house however are virtuous because they have raised the black man up and made him overseer!

    So she’s letting them move into in her own house and for free?
    Nah… looks like she’s just renting out a flat she owns to them with no doubt tax payer picking up the bill.
    Which judging by the door could be an ex council property.
    The man was an interpreter for the British army, BBC inferring he’s just finished that role.
    But the army haven’t used those for many years, and there’s a photo of the man working, looking a decade? younger.

    Funny too how these agenda driven articles are always much longer than terse news articles .

    TOADY Watch #1 – racist BBC trying to stir up race trouble with false facts and fake news

    ” Black people are more likely to die from ‘the virus’. “. Asian people are more likely to die from ‘the virus’. Uh huh. Data on the BBC’s own web-site shows that this isn’t true. Let’s look at India where ‘a variant’ (a.k.a. mutation) arose in 2020: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-51235105

    You cannot get more black and brown as well as pale as the Indian population. What do the numbers show (India is in third place after the US and Brazil on that list), despite that terrible ‘Delta variant’? Infections 34,000,000 (overwhelmingly white America +14,000,000!) Deaths 470,000 (overwhelmingly white America +370,000!) Death rate 35 (overwhelmingly white America + 200!) For sure, there is the effect of a legacy health system in India left behind by the overwhelmingly white British, four places lower in the infections and deaths chart than India, but with a far worse death rate despite our NHS.

    If you go to the bottom of the list, you will find lots of countries with BAME majority populations with tiny infection levels (OK, they are island communities) tiny or zero numbers of deaths.

    You know you can trust the BBC to lie and distort the truth with fake news and false facts.


    • StewGreen says:

      10,000 deaths in 1 million population is 1%
      So Peru is worst at 0.6%
      Then 8 eastern European white countries
      USA at 20th, then Belgium
      UK is 29th at 0.21%
      First African country is South Africa 55th 0.15%
      then Sweden
      Germany 70th at 0.12%

      Most big African countries are at the bottom of the list
      but the numbers seem not credible
      eg Nigeria with 14 deaths in a million.

      Age seems to be biggest factor not skin colour.


      • Up2snuff says:

        True, Stew, that age is an important factor together with pre-existing medical conditions including obesity. But, but, the big and rapid spread was from wealthy/prosperous, mostly white, people aboard the Diamond Princess and also those who went ski-ing (a white-ish activity), especially in Italy, at half term, February 2020.

        Most people have forgotten the Diamond Princess. It is still on the Johns Hopkins list 22 up from the foot of the list with many BAME majority nations below it. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-51235105

    News at 6 a.m., 7 a.m., 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. “The Conservatives have won the Old Bexley and Sidcup by-election but with a much reduced majority.” Untrue. It was only reduced by 1/10th a.k.a. 10% but on a low turnout.

    You know you can trust the BBC to lie and distort the truth with fake news and false facts.

      It was only reduced by 1/10th a.k.a. 10%

      Nope, that’s reduction of the Conservative vote (13%), not the reduction in their majority (hint: the Labour share of the vote increased by 7.4%)

    Watched Sky and for once the reporting was quite fair (shock horror)and representative of the result.It was also the main headline this morning at 6am.

    Wonderful BBC it was third on the pecking order of main headlines. And as usual jaw dropping left wing bias.

    Not stating the facts but putting there spin on it..stating with glee that if this % result was repeated in the next General Election Boris Johnson and many others would lose there seat..But as usual they dont state the facts..

    Turn out was 33% compared to the general election of 70%. The Lib Dems put forward a candidate but stood aside with regards to canvassing giving the Labour party a free run and hopefully a better chance of taking the seat…

    Even with all the crap the Tories are serving up at the moment and all the sleaze thats supposedly been going on, they still couldnt take the seat..

    If i was a Labour head honcho i would be worried not happy.

    TOADY Watch #3 – the BBC skirting issues, ignoring the elephants in the room and generally distorting the truth – what’s new?

    Some handwringing over the tragic tale of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes deceased who does not feature at the top of the BBC’s web-site Home Page or News Page. If I recall correctly this is the prime interview at 8.10 a.m. with former Childrens Commissioner, Anne Longfield. This sad event, the death of a six year old boy, happened on her watch as Childrens Commissioner. It also happened under the eyes of social workers, grandparents and other relatives.

    The BBC wishes to blame the Government, not the others previously mentioned.

    “It’s the result of cuts to funding!” cry the BBC. They do not consider the elephants in the room. “Local Authorities have been denied resources by the Government.” claims the BBC. Anne Longfield is rather more honest than the BBC but even she does not mention the elephants in the room, the cause of the true fact that she stated “There are more children in care than ever before in the UK.”

    The truth is that illegal immigrants will have children with them in boats that cross the Channel from France. Once in the UK, when rescued, those children and others claiming to be children become the responsibility of the Local Authority who have to take them into care.

    Facts not mentioned by the BBC or the former Childrens Commissioner during the interview. It is much easier to blame a wicked, evil, Tory Government.

    You know you can trust the BBC to lie and distort the truth with fake news and false facts.
