Weekend 11 December 2021

2 weeks to Christmas. Very often the values of the BBC are demonstrated by what it chooses – editorially – to ‘big up’ rather than what it doesn’t . Whether it is an obsession with office parties or the minimising of the criminal conviction of a US race hero – the biased values of the BBC show themselves to we who see the truth . At least there are growing numbers of alternative sources of News rather than BBC propaganda .

    First for the first time. I ask is this Boris’s last week? Have the BBC decided to let him go?


    • Up2snuff says:

      Well done, Sir! I was distracted but never mind.

      What allow the PM to go, to slip away? Eeeek. That sounds like the BBC’s Euthanasia Campaign.

      What an odd situation this is:

      I’m absolutely disgusted with the mountain the BBC are making about a party and the flat decoration. Sure Boris has been bad, but they are absolutely not important compared to the affairs of state and I’m 100% sure nearly every single MP knows all the tricks to abuse the system.

      Kuenssberg is positively wetting her knickers at the prospect of him going:

      ‘So this weekend it is worth asking if “Planet Boris” might actually, finally implode?’

      Yet on the other hand I think Boris should be replaced for far more important reasons. He has betrayed many of his pledges about Brexit and the BBC since he swapped his chief adviser from Cummins to Nut-Nut. We need a strong leader at this time, not an empty shell.

      The problem will be the sickening, massive BBC gloating if he goes. And their new confidence about directly calling the government liars when it suits them.

      I feel like Churchill must have felt when siding with the Russians in WW2.

      And it’s quite ironic that Nut-Nut will be the cause of his downfall. I’m sure both events were at her behest.


      • Doublethinker says:

        Exactly so, well said.


      • NCBBC says:

        The most serious issue that confronts the UK, is an existential one. The continuous illegal migration, as well change migration of people who bring with them a baggage that considers the UK doctrinally in error, even the present post-Christendom UK as evil, and replaced, is serious in spades.

        Boris Johnson stated openly that he would not stop any of the above. He has therefore abided his election promise.

        It is for this that I wish Boris Johnson is forced to leave, and replaced by a man who sees the threat and neuters it.

        Strangely it is Vladimir Putin who reminds us that continuous immigration of Muslims to Europe will destroy Christian Europe, and its present values. For Islam a secular society is anathema. Far worse then any religion.


  2. Fedup2 says:

    I reckon the randox bi election on Thursday will be a good indicator of nut nuts’ future – I really hope the blue Tories lose a solid seat – mainly by mug Tory voters staying home .

    With a bit of luck a complete loony toon will get the gig …..


    • Up2snuff says:

      We need a Dislike button, Fed. 😉


    • Thoughtful says:

      According to Peter Hitchens the Tory party has become nothing more than a private club to provide jobs for the sons of Gentlemen, however now that the schools the ‘Gentlemen’ send their sons to have become infiltrated by the hard left it is unsurprising the Tory party is as hard left as it is.

      To survive they need to expunge the rotten school alumni and distance themselves from them, otherwise they will lurch from one hard left disaster to another until Labour takes power from them for another hard left disaster.

      The cycle must be broken and the way to do that is to stop any public school posh boy Marxist from taking the reins of power.


      • NCBBC says:

        Great point Thoughtful.

        Schools such as Eton etal are taken over by Marxists. The same Marxist clap trap emerges from universities from Oxford down to Camden poly. And its the same low grade supposedly science based Climate Change.

        So for apparently reducing the global temperature by 1C, these people are quite happy to destroy the economy of the world. The thought that an increase of 1C will make the earth more productive and pleasant to live, does not strike them as a good thing. Far from it, as the real goal is to bring the world under communist control. A cold, poor and miserable world, where there is no Ryan air or Easy Jet, and the only people who fly around are the rich, actors and actresses, and politicians.


  3. Deborah says:

    I have watched from September onwards as the BBC and other MSM with the support of Labour, push and push for plan B to be implemented.

    I now watch local news beginning to start the narrative of the cruelty of implementing plan B. A local restaurant has lost 18 out of 22 covers this weekend. Really? Perhaps they were all from the same office but someone brought in omicron. I could believe some cancellations, but so many surprises me.

    We also had a local MP who says he will vote against the government over plan B. He finished his explanation and Peter Levy curled a lip and reported the number of covid deaths. No more than some other days, but implied that the MP was wrong. So attack the conservatives whatever they do.

    But watch the narrative. If numbers go up be it cases or deaths then the conservatives were too slow to implement plan B. But watch the BBC blame the government for any business’ difficulties caused by Plan B.


  4. StewGreen says:

    Covid today a leap in positives to 58K (affected by number of tests)
    Yet the death trend is still not rising ..it’s flat averaging 118/day


    • JohnC says:

      Seems to me that people now realise that even if they get it, it’s no worse than catching a cold if they’ve been vaccinated and so they have gone back to living a normal life.


      • Fedup2 says:

        This vexes me because the MSM / tories are in full panic mode . But where are the bodies ? Where are the overwhelmed hospitals ?
        No sign of either . What are the effects of this virus – what do people suffer from . ? There is no clarity on this .

        Gradually public support for any requirements is reducing – so they will need to increase Project Fear .


        • Scroblene says:

          Must check with Excel in Docklands, and see if they have any spare beds, or any at all…


        • JohnC says:

          Absolutely. I suspect there are a lot of people throughout government in positions of power they ill-deserve and are very reluctant to let go of.

          Not to mention the ability to spend spend spend without proper scrutiny.


          • Up2snuff says:

            Danger is that the MSM are pushing testing again. We know that the tests are not 100% accurate, they have an error margin. That means people with a false negative may have Covid in its various mutations and may pass it on. We also know the non-vaccines – at best – only limit severity after three jabs of the non-vaccine.


            • JohnC says:

              I personally think the vaccines work to stop you getting it too seriously. And one works for a few months, two work for more months and the third probably keeps it up for another year or more. And it’s not all or nothing like they are trying to make out : as their protection fades you will be gradually stand more chance of getting it worse.

              What I seriously object to is the hype, misinformation and lies about them to make us do whatever they want us to do at this particular time. It’s impossible to find consistent information and at the moment, the concensus of online misinformation seems to be that you are only protected after 3 jabs !.

              Remember that the idea for 2 jabs only came about by accident because the Oxford academics made yet another big mistake during the trials. These people don’t really know what they are doing and are learning ‘on the job’. Which is not very reassuring considering how long they were preparing for this.


        • Doublethinker says:

          I’m not sure if the Tories really want plan B or whatever. What they want is to avoid being blamed if there are numerous more deaths from the virus and being accused of not doing enough to prevent those deaths. So they are in full arse covering mode and are massively risk averse. They know that a majority of the public are said to still support lock down etc , incredible but true , and of course the MSM are circling Boris waiting for another blunder.
          This might not be leadership but it is what happens to most politicians with a hostile MSM who still hold great sway with the public .Only the great and sadly missed Lady Thatcher could face the MSM down and lead from the front.


  5. Guest Who says:

    Toenails rather proving he is.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Guest – the interview was discussed / described here when it happened . It was truly awful – by Robinson – who I see as an insult to journalism and may well be either mentally disturbed or on drugs .
      The hyper attitude he takes to those of whom thr BBC disapproves is so drastically different to those on the ‘good ‘ list – such as Hattie Harmon or the T. May gimp being rolled out to rubbish his own party on `Friday .


      • Guest Who says:

        He is a shot bolt like Groper.

        Known outside the bubble only for nothing to do with competent journalism.

        It’s been noted GB has attracted all the halfway decent heavy hitters, leaving Huw, Simpo and him to sulk with their money.


  6. Nibor says:

    I heard a little on the 6pm news Radio 4 about a botched police investigation about four murders of gay men .
    The piece ended with the BBC recalling some other botched cases , usually to do with BAME people and the Sarah Everard murder , and saying that public trust in the police had fallen to 63% .
    As though the public trust had fallen because of those cases .

    No BBC , the public trust of the police is falling as they get more Woke and alienate the majority. And the minorities. We expect them to fail occasionally, but now the Gramscis run the force they are failing all the time .
    They need to go back and look at the Peel basics , then work out where they go wrong .
    Same with the judges.


    • Doublethinker says:

      A truly frightening piece on Tucker Carlson , Fox, yesterday on how a bigoted lunatic black woman lawyer has become the Attorney General of Massachusetts responsible for enforcing all of the laws in that state.
      Tucker showed a series of clips of her speeches and interviews over the past couple of years in which she repeatedly made clear that she doesn’t think that a range of laws on the books are really crimes and ought not to be prosecuted and scarily that riots , looting , arson are all reasonable responses from black folks to decades of white supremacy!
      If you are white and charged with a crime you are going to face a very type of justice than if you are black. How long will the white folks of Mass put up with this ?
      The racial divide in the USA which was slowly being closed from the 1960’s is now widening at an increasingly rapid rate because of race based politics. Things are getting frightening and what America does today we do tomorrow.

    Cancelled and ruined for comparing fine malts to sensual lovers: Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible sold a million copies and the industry hung on his every word – until Becky Paskin posted a single Instagram message

    Author of the Whisky Bible Jim Murray was ‘cancelled’ by the ‘woke brigade’
    The 64-year-old’s world fell apart after he compared fine malts to sensual lovers
    He is fighting back with a group for cancel culture victims called War on Woke
    His new uncensored 2022 Whisky Bible champions free speech and feminism


    It was surreal. Everything fell apart,’ he says. ‘Everyone abandoned me. It took me months to even work out what had happened, but now I see it’s bullying — horrible, unfiltered bullying — and I’m fighting back.’

    First, with a new, uncensored and unbowed 2022 Whisky Bible, complete with an angry foreword championing free speech and feminism.

    Next, he has plans to contact all fellow cancel culture victims and set up an organisation called WOW — aka War On Woke.

    ‘Because we are victims,’ he says. ‘You’re not allowed to say this. You’ve got to say that. You’ve got to think this. You must say that.’


  8. Zephir says:

    She called him the ‘Donald Trump’ of the whisky world and later said ‘this is whisky’s #MeToo movement’. She urged distillers to stop promoting the book, or they’d be guilty of condoning his sexist and vulgar behaviour.

    ‘Any brand celebrating their placement in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible should be ashamed,’ she wrote. She also cited a selection of Jim’s sauciest notes from the 2021 edition, starting with his review of a Canadian Club ‘heritage’ brand.

    ‘Have I had this much fun with a sexy 41-year-old Canadian before?’ Murray wrote. ‘Well, yes I have. But it was a few years back and it wasn’t a whisky. Was the fun we had better? Probably not.’

    She also drew attention to his ‘disgusting’ comments about Penderyn, the Welsh distiller producing single malts from a village on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, which has an all-woman distilling team.

    ‘If this was a woman, I’d want to make love to it every night,’ he writes of their whisky. ‘And in the morning. And afternoon, if I could find the time . . . and energy . . .’


    • Scroblene says:

      This is great news for the man, Z, as I see that he’s already ordering a second run of print!

      One commenter states that ‘he’s going to buy the book now, and he doesn’t even like whisky’!


      More strength to your elbow Jim – maybe take the weight on both elbows…


      • Zephir says:

        Everyone should buy it and boycott the other silly bitch who had a business interest in getting him cancelled

        “Becky Paskin — a former editor of scotchwhisky.com and co-founder of OurWhisky (launched in 2018 ‘to champion diversity and inclusion in the whisky industry’), took to Instagram”

    His desperation to exonerate the Beatles is rather strange


    ‘It was no secret Jimmy Page liked young girls’: New book packed with horrifying claims about underage sex could unleash a #MeToo reckoning on Led Zeppelin



    • Scroblene says:

      Why do the BBC rely on their pseudo-porn programmes get all huffy when these stories come around?

      If they’d sorted out who should be sacked after the Savile scandal, they might have some sort of case, but they still persist in all these silly progs, also aimed at kids, to make ‘hunks’ get unspeakable with young birds, then pretend to cry off when someone actually syas ENOUGH!

      It’s about time some of the dead-tree rags did some nasty digging at what goes on in BBC studios, changing rooms, loos etc., and lets have a few pics as well, so we know who’s at it.

            Zephir – I’m sure he thinks he is following in Churchills ‘ footsteps . He – too – was pretty good at causing disasters – eg Dardanelles – which were foreseeable if he had grasp of detail .
            But sadly I think that is his biggest weakness – even worse than his inability to see what is the truth and what is a lie .

            As I mentioned – if the blue Labour Party loses the randox bi election on Thursday – via an enormous swing – maybe that will be enough to trigger the ‘no confidence ‘ .

            I know some here will say it won’t make much difference – but at least a replacement will be better on detail and be more focussed – and even maybe a bit to the “right “ ….

    Boris Johnson: Is ‘Planet Boris’ finally going to implode?

    “reports” Kuenssberg

    You just know its her by looking at the title, maybe someone needs to do a “report” on the bBC planet


  12. Zephir says:

    Planet “bbc” has a rather toxic atmosphere and a severe spin to the left.

    Its inhabitants speak two different languages, 95% of them live underground and are never ever heard of on the surface, and the small minority on the surface live in a place called “Islington”.

    Only the darker ones of the underground are allowed to the surface occasionally. The rest are white miners never seeing the light of day and they work all day and night to pay for “Islington”.

    Anyone on the surface not speaking “Islingtonese” is sent underground immediately and never heard of again.

    The none the wiser edition
    Or maybe this is the figures show edition – take your pick

    The ‘i’ newspaper tops the BBC online press line up this morning and appears at first glance to bring some good news for the severely coronaphobic…

    Booster can stop Omicron‘ – they scream.

    Nice to know but is Omicron all it’s cracked up to be?

    The most common Omicron symptoms include cough, fatigue, and a runny nose, according to health officials in the US and Europe‘ (Business Insider Inc)

    Not too much to worry about then.

    But, to be on the safe side, we’d best read some of the small print in the ‘i’

    Three vaccine doses are 75% effective against symptomatic infection, figures show‘ – you have to admire that last phrase – figures show. The ‘i’ present us a headline statistic and then tell us that same figure they just gave shows us something. QED as mathematicians and scientists tend to say.

    But I’m very curious about whether the ‘i’ newspaper’s three doses of jab prevent one catching the big “O” ? Or perhaps do they just alleviate your symptoms if you do catch it – symptoms which are already pretty mild by the sound of things?

    We read on…

    Adds urgency to booster drive to increase protection against rapidly spreading strain‘ – yes we certainly get that message. But is the ‘i’ somewhat bending the news – the facts… the figures… just to fit the vaccine drive approved narrative? If I really want public health advice I could pick up an NHS leaflet from my GP surgery – or perhaps I could if the lazy over-paid bugger would let me anywhere near the place.

    Taking matters into my own hands I’ve just been reading the instructions/directions/cautions on the back of a ten pack of Sainburys’s Healthcare Max strength generic Lemsip-style powders – for oral suspension (whatever that means?)

    The short back of pack small print contains two dire exhortations to consult a doctor under the warning section which further demands I not only keep the pack out of the reach of children but that I keep it out of their sight. You know, like my GP is keeping safely out sick patients sight.

    The more detailed “Package leaflet: Information for the user” sadly fails to include any percentage effectiveness against symptomatic infection – whether figures show or not.

    I digress.

    Immunity given by two doses of AstraZeneca ‘wanes to near zero after six months‘ – so the dream of a cure for the common cold sadly waxes then wanes – like most other utopian dreams tends to do. Wanes is rather poetic term. Why not give us the sciency word – reduces?

    One million cases by end of month projected in worst-case scenario‘ – in that case we have a bad case of worst case case numbers, eh?

    We soon tire of reading the ‘i’ newspaper’s frontpage relentless bullet point presentation – which frankly reads like a corporate presentation determinedly urging and reinterating us to its way of thinking. Or selling us something.

    Suffice to say it goes on and on – we’ve an anxious wait to see how NHS hospitals will cope with the unknown; the corona-reliable Nicola Sturgeon is expecting a ‘tsunami before Christmas‘ – [I once accidentally overheard some female lockerroom banter (don’t ask) two girls were chatting very candidly about chaps. One girl said she couldn’t understand what on earth a third girl saw in some very average bloke she was going out with. Perhaps, she assumed, she must “ride the rapids with him?” So, you go girl, Nicola!] I do undertand it can get pretty wild in the Trussachs in the winter; the Government (UK, I assume?) is waiting for data before deciding if Plan C is needed; and 40% of the public supposedly back lockdown, or so a poll for ‘i’ tells them. Figures show? No one asked me. Perhaps they just asked around the office?

    The Mirror meanwhile suggests: ‘PM’s party backlash. Scandal leaves 4 in 5 less likely to follow Covid rules…‘ – or so apparently rather contradictory figures show.

    Needless to say most national titles echo the ‘i’s narratives. There was a time BBC journos justified or excused their differentiation from what they termed The Tory Press.

    That’s more than your recommended daily dose of that for the day. To other news…

    Frontpage pics in the Mail, Times, Telegraph, etc bring us the young royal’s Christmas Card – saves on the postage I suppose – an eyewatering 76p and from 1st January 85p [remember folks, inflation is supposed to be 4.1% – figures show]: ‘Royal Xmas greetings from the Holy Land‘; ‘…card shows the couple in Jordan with their children‘; ‘Future kings from the East‘ – did someone nearly mention Christ?

    Foreign travel, eh? Who remembers that being a thing?

    FT: ‘Ski resorts take tentative first steps amid covid fears‘ – and Global Warming fears?

    I’m none too sure whether the FT is perhaps in jovial mood with these juxtaposed features: ‘Bulls, bears – and frogs Investor guide to 2022‘; ‘Putin’s mind games. Will Russia invade Ukraine?

    I have a half recollection of a line from a recent honey trap themed spy thriller movie – it may have been Red Sparrow [2018] – “Russia, the land of beautiful women and men who look like frogs

    Doesn’t anyone in the government or msm realise that by going well over the top with this mild omicron variant and bringing in all these measures again that when/if a really dangerous variant comes along, nobody will take them seriously.

    I don’t believe anything the politicians say but there are plenty out there who, for a variety of reasons, willingly embrace all these controls. If they start to see that they are being played they, in increasing numbers, will disregard any future calls for controls.

    Whether it’s crying wolf or using covid for political ends they could cause a very serious outbreak in future because they have lost all credibility.

    TOADY Watch #1 – well that was illuminating

    Ladies Day on TOADY with Mishal and the Bee Lady playing (mixed) doubles. TOADY is being its usual irritating self this morning with interviewees from the wrong discipline being asked most of the right questions but not all of them in the right order. Professor Eleanor Riley was the prime interview guest and said ‘So’ a lot at the start of her replies to Mishal’s questions. The good Professor told us what she didn’t know about Omicron. ‘So’, so there! You don’t know exactly the same about Omicron as Professor Eleanor Riley. Your PhD is in the post.

    The Prof was good at explaining what happens during the infection process. Inevitably, the subject of vaccination with our non-vaccines came up. The things I want to know, am currently aching to know are: ‘Why have we been unable to develop proper vaccines in the UK, Europe and the USA so far?’ and ‘Why have only the Russians and Chinese – apparently – developed proper vaccines for Covid-19 and its mutations?’

    As time passes, those questions will become increasingly important.


    So how about asking them, BBC? Maybe starting now . . . …..


    • Fedup2 says:

      So – you don’t like interviewees beginning the comment with ‘so ‘. I use this ‘so’ as a gauge for the value of the interviewee – beginning prejudiced and waiting to be proved wrong .

      I was thinking that the problem with the format of ‘Today ‘is the need to spend short times on each item . This leads to failure to air both arguments over a subject and the sort of bullying method Robinson and the paki one uses .

      The format – of course – meets the need of the BBC propaganda method – and if only ‘approved ‘ people are allowed on the airways that furthers the group think .

      That’s all we have time for – now the weather

        Truly astonishing that he’s out and about at the “Ripple of Hope” awards ceremonies attended by the Democratic establishment’s great and good waving at the cameras…

        Since he’s on his way to Paris in January – ‘parently – I’d bet that the BBC are trying to snag him for an interview en route?

        It’ll be interesting if he gets Woody Allan to give a testimonial…

        Transitory inflation doesn’t exist if you never have any deflation. Inflation is only transitory if it is matched by equivalent deflation (or in other words negative inflation) for a similar period of time.

        Every so often one of those blue labour drones makes a comment which shows just how much their party has lost the plot .
        The party of the individual ?
        The party of personal property ?

        Not any more if drones like Trudi climbs the corrupt pole .

        Does she and her family have cars ? Does she claim expenses on them ? Does she ever share her transport ? Does she use buses ?
        I’d like to know the answer to this . I joke about the blue labour and red labour parties … it becomes less and less of a joke ….

        Judging what wiki says about trudi( 45 ) she has few political beliefs apart from political ambition ….


      • Up2snuff says:

        The politicians have backed themselves into a corner on CO2 and anthropogenic global warming and climate change. Mind you, Tony Blair led the way (with Clinton) on climate change and the Tories have been outbidding him before (Major and the fuel duty escalator) and ever since.

        The only way out for them is to have a fairly major war where the CO2 emissions will go through the roof. Trouble is, the potential candidates are Russia and China and Iran on one side and everyone else on t’other. That scenario could lead to a nuclear exchange. The most likely outcome of the CO2 emissions and dust created will be some global cooling which will make the UN IPCC have a bit of a meltdown.

    Similar to Simon Webb’s channel : some fan of Thomas Sowell has taken material from his books and turned it into Youtube shorts channel
    eg The Truth about Thomas Jefferson and the other founding fathers on slavery .. https://youtu.be/TxD4AwFiELM

    eg History of Nigeria : https://youtu.be/6uPVLC5b768

    The note says that YouTube has started to censor some of them, even though it’s a black professor writing on black issues.


    • tomo says:

      YouTube really doesn’t like Sowell – YT searches often fail to find him esp. if a subject specified….

      Same goes for Clarence Thomas

      Is it ‘coz they is black?

    This probably falls under ‘How would the bbc run with this if one of their ideological foes was a bit embroiled’?


    I have a fair idea.

    As with the Oxford St Spittoon management the BBC appears exempted from anything they would throw around if the boot was in the other foot.

    I still wonder how Marianna was able to get away with creating a honey trap fake ‘sting’ which was pretty lame.

    Simon Webb on the new black Western
    His points
    #1 It’s the first black western
    (No that’s not true ..eg “Thomasine and Bushrod” 1973/74)

    #2 White Westerns are fantasy too
    .. so it’s no use complaining that the film isn’t super realistic
    BTW it’s reviews are OK rather than great.

      Isn’t it a shame that this bloke has one of the most boring voices ever heard in that place?

      Nasal, uninspiring, vacant and unimpressive!

      And of course, all the troughers he failed to ‘kick out’ are old labourites, insufficient in skills and competence, but still there because of the sheep who vote for them.
