    BBC mock the week, 10 mins in and so far they have gone after Trump, Johnson and Hancock.

    Not really so much biased as bitter really.

    It is the BBC after all!

    I think secretly they know their lefty paradise is about to turn to sand.

          I do notice that the Friends of the BBC club, being the Guardian and the Independent are running lots of hazy opinion polls on whether we should have left the EU or not with surprisingly a rise in the number of people who now think leaving was wrong.

          This is a technique of using very targeted polls only including people who think like you do to suggest it is the National mood.

          They have never forgiven the referendum result and they are not given up yet and will continue to push for rejoin for a long time yet.

          Reminds me of those old blokes who used to walk around with sandwich boards saying the end of the world is nigh!

    I am not a conspiracy theorist. But a friend tells me in her local authority NHS workers can self certify for up to 28 days sick to save gp’s time. I do hope they are all honest. You could believe it was a decision to make difficult times more difficult.

        This idea to protect NHS workers from diseases is a brilliant idea. Hardly any can disagree that NHS workers should be protected.

        One can apply the principle to the armed forces. Also to RNLI – they should be protected and mandated not to go out into stormy seas just to save a few irresponsibles.

        Another protected should be power electricity workers. They should not be forced to go out to repair power lines in stormy weather.

        Moreover, to show how grateful we the public are, their salaries should be increased by 10%.

      Christians all over Afrtica, the ME, accepted invading and migrating Muslims. Now they are facing extinction by mass rape and eviction. This is the fate of Europe.

      Illustrative is the town oif Bethlehem. Just a few decades back it was a Christian majority town when Israel governed it.

      But due to pressure from leftys, Christians in the West, and strangely, Christians in Palestine, Israel handed control to the PA.

      Bethlehem is now a Muslim town. The only reason that the Manger church is till a church is that it is the only source for money.

    To be honest I don’t know we bother. The BBC is an anarchist

    unlike China the BBC can’t send in the police to arrest

    As for the Chinese it looks like that their upgrade on their
    biggest ever “export” they have given to the world is
    not as good as the previous versions. I wonder what the
    next version will be like? And do you think that are clever

    The guest presenter was Professor of Sociology at Brent University, Raheem Sterling.
    And I must say that I have rarely heard such an unceasing monosyllabic contribution.
    In fact it appeared to me that this was inferentially understood as Toenails did nearly all of his presenting. The socialist content was risible. Kids with two parents appear to be ‘advantaged’ if you follow the BBC narrative.

    Women’s Heath UK

    Well done the ‘i’ newspaper for gifting us a feature headline today that – perhaps accidentally – nicely sums up our health and safety obsessed nervous ninny covid-passport medicalised authoritarian state of the nation in 2021:

    Books – the Feminist retelling of 1984‘ – look out George Orwell, they’ll be coming for your cigarette and little moustache next (Churchill has already had his cigars banned by the National Trust this week).

    One senses it’s going to be a ladies day in the press today.

    Our Yasmin Alibhai-Brown in the ‘i’ tips her metaphorical hat to some vague theoretical residual notion of Britain and tells us we’ll be hearing lots more from her in future – so we can all look forward to that: ‘I’m grateful to big hearted Brits …and will never be silenced by critics

    Well, the lads have let us down: ‘Over and out. England crushed as Australia retain Ashes‘ (Guardian) – does one sense a little more than a hint of relish there in male failure?

    I don’t know what Geoffry Boycott, Aggers or Blowers would say but Sally Jones in the Telegraph comments: ‘We English are never happier than when we are losing at sport‘ – speak for yourself, luv.

    For ironic effect one had planned to highlight here our unsilencable Yasmin’s hypocrisy with a Tweet of her’s calling for Hate Laws to silence her critics and political opponents. Her Twitter profile sounded promising; bravely espousing her Leftist credentials and social justice warrior-like refusal to be silenced: ‘Breaking the silence on the toxic mix: Immigration, race and Brexit. My column

    Here we go, or so I thought… however…

    You’re unable to view this Tweet because this account owner limits who can view their Tweets

    I think this is what’s known as broadcast-only or living in your own bubble.

    Of course not all the Sistas speak with the same voice (or more properly Women – whatever they might happen to be…? Don’t ask Sir Keir, he can’t tell you): ‘Emma takes Howarts Express to TV reunion …but no sign of JK‘ (Daily Mail) – I’ll bet Rowling now wishes she could wave a wand and wish all those ungrateful virtue-signalling child actors away, back to the pennyless anonymity of the talent schools where she found them.

    Riddikulus Perfidious Over-Hyperbulous Snowflakius

    Speaking of female celebs getting down and dirty: ‘Crowning glory. Foy tipped for awards after ‘dirty Duchess’ triumph‘ (Daily Express)

    I hear the TV audience considered Claire Foy’s recreation of the headless man sex act in A Very British Scandal was a bit of a flacid flop. Seems this BBC show is in need of some fluffing and the Express is apparently willing to go down and oblige.

    Let’s raise the tone with a Times fashion feature after all this naughty talk of going down… ‘Going up! Hems are rising again

    At last, some good news for the chaps.

    Likewise the Telegraph promotes: ‘The 25-best dressed women of 2021‘ – one doubts our Davina made the shortlist… what on earth is she wearing on the frontpage of the Daily Satyr? I do hope it was for a fancy dress superhero-themed party. I guessed wrong. Cue a rare credit hereabouts for Women’s Heath UK magazine who did the photoshoot with our Davina fresh from the dressing up box.

    Speaking of disreputable Duchesses – as we were – the The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s PR machine has been busy as per usual jumping every bandwagon that comes along: ‘Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Pay Tribute to Desmond Tutu‘ (Harper’s Bazaar)

    There’s hardly a day goes by we don’t hear some virtue signal from the woman I like to term the Duchess of Mouthy.

    There’s one for all those legions of well-educated teenaged fans of Jacobean drama out there.

    And speaking of Jacobean drama and our very own Prince Hal… who’s rather more manly namesake and distant forebear, rather than giving up the life of the soldier, grew up to bash the French as Henry V (bear with me, I’m on a segue way roll today) One hears that following the crossbow-armed intruder incident at Windsor Castle – and the inevitable calls for something must be done – our diminiative Princess Priti Patel is tasked with tightening the nation’s crossbow laws.

    Given her track record level of success with toughening our immigration laws we can perhaps soon look forward to the skys above our streets being almost as filled with flying arrows as was the vacinity of Agincourt on Saint Crispin’s Day 1415.

    Remind me… how did we get here? It’s not just me who for no apparent reason has got himself stuck in the Middle Ages – as is the preferred habit of our media to relentlessly relitigate in the search for justice, the Telegraph reopens a case colder than the average British home is going to be this winter as we open our gas bills: ‘Richard III ‘did not murder’ Edward V

    One half expects Shakespeare to be cowered into issuing a grovelling retraction of his libellous play in 2022, for fear of m’learned friends breathing down his neck in search of damages. Now is the winter of our discontent, betwixt media and populace…?

    Richard III. Where did they dig him up from? A car park in Leicester, apparently, he lay there undiscovered for over 500 years. It’s amazing what you can unearth in those parts, when you actually start really looking for it: ‘Leicester child prostitution trial: Six men jailed‘ (BBC August 2013)

    But enough old news about young brown men and ancient white men resident in Leicester, it’s supposed to be ladies day…

    Menopause ‘champions’ wanted for every office‘ (Times)

    That’s for sure been calculated to encourage lots of unemployed demotivated directionless socially awkward and displayed suicide-prone young men back into the workplace (sarc – as the teenagers tend to text)

    James Delingpole has reviewed the BBC offering of Around the World in 80 days in the Spectstor , in his usual witty style and found it to be Marxist anti British rubbish , which is why of course none of us on this site will have bothered to watch it.
    The readers comments are excellent ranging from a chap who watched the entire first episode but decided that he would ‘ rather milk a cow with diarrhoea ‘ than watch the second episode , to another who decided after the first ten minutes that he would rather stick needles in his eyes than continue to watch.

        Viewing figures are estimated ‘ independently’ by BARB . They arrive at these estimates from input from about 15,000 ‘carefully’ selected households whose TV consumption is electronically monitored .
        The obvious way in which these figures can be deliberately weighted in favour of the BBC is in the ‘selection process ‘ of the households. Events of the past few years have hugely increased my suspicion of all forms of officialdom as I believe that there is overwhelming evidence that the global liberal blob has taken control of almost all of our institutions and uses this control to ruthlessly push its agenda .
        Preservation of the BBC , its main propaganda fog horn, is essential to the blob and I am sure that the blob will require BARB to play its part and provide boosted figures for BBC consumption in order to justify the License Fee or in future direct government funding.

    If we look at how this Country is run it’s such a disappointment.

    Take the NHS for example.
    This top heavy institution is not fit for purpose. It is outperformed by the similar health systems in Germany and France for example.

    We are performing poorly in many other areas.

    The immigration service or border forces are also not fit for purpose. We are helpless and seem unable to do anything about the mass arrivals.

    We are getting the runaround with NI and don’t appear to be making any headway.

    The Tories appear lukewarm about brexit and are not fulfilling the brexit we voted for.

    The worst pensions compared to similar nations.

    Hopeless at sorting out our energy with prices set to go through the roof yet little or no movement to become self sufficient. Small nuclear power stations take over a decade and we don’t appear to be doing anything about them. No fracking looks like happening and we have virtually no gas storage. Windmills aren’t the answer and we don’t get enough sun for solar to make much difference.

    It looks like most will be worse off except those middle manager, diversity type of jobs so common in the NHS and other government funded employment. Civil servants will not lose out. In short, those who run the Country will be ok and they will make sure their mates are as well.
    All the political parties are similar and are not the way forward.

    I hope Reform etc can get their acts together because those in charge are just wasting the money that our actual businesses are still providing. The working part of the UK is paying for a big lazy blob of useless, mainly government/civil service types who are wasting huge amounts whilst making sure they are well paid for doing it.

    We could do so much better than this lot in charge.

      EG
      Agree with most of what you write except pensions.
      I recently ‘bought’ an extra year of state pension. It cost £780 and gives me an extra £2 a week.in. Couple of years time.

      So. That’s £104 per year guaranteed inflation proofed income for as long as I live for an outlay of £780.

      A rate of return of over 13%..
      Compared with commercial annuity rates of around 3%.

      No wonder we are in such deep financial trouble with that kind of largesse, unappreciated by 90% of taxpayers.

      The full state pension of £9000 per annum which so many are alleged to ‘deserve’ would require a pension pot of £300,000 for a private sector worker. Almost no-one ever pays in anything like that. As a deal it’s very hard to beat.
      Covering the cost is of course left to others.

        I’m on the old pension of £137 or about £7,000 a year after paying in for 50 years without missing a week.
        That’s the pension most will be on (the old one) apart from those retiring in the last 5 years.

        While I’m sure there will be deals out there such as the one you mentioned most people either don’t know much about them or are not savvy enough to find them and build up their pension pot so compared to the rest of similar Countries we get a lower pension.

        Things like the (not increased for 12 years I think) heating allowance, well, we are on a cold Island with some parts of our mainland more northerly than the Capital of Alaska so although welcome it doesn’t cover the bills and the way energy prices are heading will become a bit like the £10 Christmas payment.

          I have to admit that the best advice I received was in 1972 – when I was 24 (earning £18 pw), and asked to join the company pension scheme, paying in £5 per month from my wages. Reluctantly I did (thinking what I could buy for a fiver), but I didn’t miss it, and my contributions grew with my salary. As I changed jobs I transferred accordingly, or joined another company scheme and paying AVCs. So when I retired 15 years ago I had a few ‘top ups’ to my state pension.

          Sadly youngsters today and in recent years put their current needs first rather than thinking ahead for their retirement. I suppose they do have the benefit of inheritance which my generation didn’t have.

The ones which are planned merely take the place of the ones leaving service, and will still leave the navy with just 19 escorts, assuming they are all built.

    If only there was a state run enterprise to provide our social entertainment instead of all these private sector businesses who deserve all they get.

    When doing various marketing courses in the seventies, I was always taught that the number-one issue was to respect the culture and philosophy of any country you wish to visit and work in, to understand their ideology, their religions, their passions, and anything to do with the place, as it was commercially incorrect and very rude to try and impose British views and instincts on people who didn’t want change. Much of this emanated from previous years when such colonialism was ‘allowed’, but certainly wouldn’t be soon, and most normal companies learned to accept this.

    It was/is still a sound appreciation of how to work rest and play with other nations, but this philosophy has been hijacked by the woke, snowflake, lefty mob, carefully tended to by the MSM and especially the awful BBC, to bring unwanted ‘diversity’ to Great Britain, and these elite socialists tell normal British citizens that they have to abide by their Marxist rules, and we must not be ourselves any more.

    The BBC have already gone too far with their ridiculous racist stirring at every turn, and are the main culprits for much of the unrest in towns and cities, where we are inundated with people who just will never adapt to the British values that I was taught, as set out above.

    Their ‘Charter’ is well overdrawn nowadays, their attitude to Great British citizens is deplorable and when Boris is chucked, a new PM must get a decent person in cabinet to take them down for good!

        Senora O’Blene and I have been discussing this at some length in recent days, as the awfull BBC’s output over Christmas has been derisory, and they’re soon getting back to full-on anti-British, anti-Trump, anti-normal Britain pretty damn quickly! Knob Rickerson is well in the frame for ‘gotchas’ but no actual results in his poor ‘interviews’! He clearly didn’t have the marketing expertise which was drummed into me back then, but there again, he’s only a ‘journo’, so not really worth a lot.

        Boris the Botcher has only a few weeks to redeem himself now. The awful BBC are rubbing their grubby hands with glee, but let’s look at the alternatives – Surkeer, Fick Ange, Abbott, Lammy…

        I’m so glad I’m getting old, I won’t have to worry about all these a*******s dealing with my country!

        You get the picture?

    World at one

    I wonder if anyone can help me ? Jon boy diamond geezer interviewed some bloke from ofsted . Apparently there are hundreds of illegal religious schools operating in Blighty .

    This is very serious ( apparently ) . But I was vexed because Jonnie didn’t ask any one from the Protestants. Catholics . Jews . Sikhs , pagans …. Or anyone else about the nature of these Religious Schools?

    Apparently the parents sending their kids to ‘religious schools ‘ don’t agree with the state curriculum.now what parts of the State Curriculum might that be ?

    I’m not sure the BBC covered this story very well and left more questions than answers . Can anyone explain ….. why ?

          While I’ve been posting on various sites since God knows when – probs when Prince Charles was up to no good, and I discovered ‘Throne Out’, (remember them), and I’m certainly not a republican, but I was able to cut my teeth on discussions on these good sites which are now up to the standard like you manage and continue to help normal people to get somewhere near the truth.

          Guido and Iain Dale came next, and the latter has gone off on a tangent, and the first one still does do a great job in getting under politicians’ skin, but has loads of trolls as a consequence. But I do get in there because I like to!

          This site has a lot more going for it than many people might imagine. We all agree that the BBC is a dreadful example of bullying, lefty shouters, with poor ‘journos’, and doing definitely poorer productions these days, and the under-managers pummel the British public with far too much wokeness and feeble displays or snowflakeness, it’s not surprising that whatever popularity they had a dozen years ago has just dissipated!

          Sorry for the length of this item, but I hope you know where I’m coming from, or to be more precise, ‘From whence I arrived’!

    Seems like the Mail are picking up tips from the BBC. This morning they had a splash article on their home page having go at a Viscount over some suggested misuse of the Governments levelling up fund to get £330,00 to repair a driveway on his land.

    All the usual left wing attacks are rolled out including a hint at Tory sleaze.

    Reading on it is a classic case of error by omission. The driveway in fact leads to a privately owned historic home and museum open to the public so the road is used by the public the access the museum.

    And it was the operators of the museum who has applied for the grant as visitors cars were being damaged by the pot-holed surface of the road.

    Oddly, By this afternoon the article had vanished so I guess some sharp lawyers got on the case!

    However here is a link to the original article.

    Gordon Brown warns Afghanistan is the ‘biggest humanitarian crisis of our times’ and ‘entire country’ faces living in ‘absolute poverty’ under Taliban rule unless West pledges billions in aid

    Ex-PM called on world to commit to the ‘largest humanitarian response ever’

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10352337/Gordon-Brown-warns-Afghanistan-biggest-humanitarian-crisis-times.html

    Afghanistan’s economy was heavily reliant on western aid, which has now been withdrawn. It has also been cut off from the global financial system, meaning banks cannot borrow from abroad or access their foreign reserves.

    The Afghan banking system is now almost entirely frozen, with customers unable to withdraw cash from ATMs, while the cash crisis has been exacerbated by the Taliban banning foreign money despite much of the economy running on dollars.

    F2 RE OFSTED even in the Guardian from a few ywears ago:

    Ofsted chief receives threats over private faith school criticism

    Amanda Spielman tells of ‘venomous’ tweets and emails after accusing schools of resisting legal and moral duties

    The head of Ofsted has received threats and abuse after accusing private faith schools run by religious conservatives of deliberately resisting British values and equalities law.

    Amanda Spielman, the chief inspector of schools in England, said she had received some “pretty venomous stuff” from what she believed to be a “mixture of Islamic extremists and the hard left”.

    In an interview with the Times on Saturday she said: “I’m not easily bruised. I don’t fall over when I see a load of nasty tweets pointed at me, but there has been some pretty venomous stuff.

    “I had an email, which was the most threatening one, which was along the lines of: ‘We know where you live and we can get you any time we want to.’”

    In the inspectorate’s annual report published earlier this week, Spielman highlighted disturbing policies and literature used by private faith schools, and called for school inspectors to be given new powers to seize evidence during visits.

    She said inspectors had found texts that encouraged domestic violence, the subjugation of women and homophobia at schools run religious conservatives.

    Despite the backlash, which also reportedly led to extra security staff being drafted in at one of Ofsted’s regional offices after inspectors were sent extreme Islamic literature, Spielman said she would not stay quiet.

    “If we let ourselves be intimidated out of discussing these issues, it’s children who will suffer.”

    Her report said schools were deliberately choosing not to meet standards because of the tensions between legal requirements and community expectations.

    Current powers were inadequate to tackle unregistered schools, which were being set up to avoid teaching in accordance with the law, she said.

    Head of Ofsted threatened for defending ‘British values’

    The chief inspector of schools in England has said she has received threats and abuse, after accusing some private faith schools run by religious conservatives of “deliberately flouting” British values and equalities law.

    The head of Ofsted, Amanda Spielman, in her annual report, warned “there are those who seek to isolate young people from the mainstream, do not prepare them for life in Britain, or … actively undermine fundamental British values.”

    The chief inspector said that within state education, there are schools spreading beliefs that are widely shared within the community that the school serves but that clash with society’s values: “The recent case of Al-Hijrah School in Birmingham showed that an ethos that completely segregates children in school and that spreads discriminatory views about women is unacceptable.”

    Ms Spielman said that tensions between belief systems and British values create a motivation for some communities to try to avoid the educational and safeguarding standards that are expected of schools – and that illegal ‘schools’ are being created in order to avoid teaching democracy, mutual tolerance and respect.

    A pause in the persistent rain and thought I would take a stroll. Walking down the High Street of my small coastal town I passed what is called the trash cafe. It is volunteer operated “shop” that collects surplus or near end of date food from local supermarkets and hands it over to needy families for what they can afford or nothing if no cash.

    No doubt a worthy cause but what shocked me was seeing the long queue, I would estimate 200-300 strong waiting in the queue, many with small children.

    This from just one small town of 50,000 or so souls.

    I couldn’t help but remember the recent reports of thousands of pounds worth of free takeaway food being delivered to migrants in their hotels in Kent by border officials.

    This is warped in every sense and the Government needs to wake up, get out of London and smell the coffee.

    OVERALL TOADY Watch for the week – I am wondering why the BBC . . . …..

    …… . . . did not publicise their Guest Editors for the TOADY Programme as they usually do? It seems to me that they used to start doing so early in December. This year: not a peep. There used to be endless trails which would increase in the week in which Christmas Eve was situated.

    Could it be that the BBC have detected that the TOADY Programme was actually losing listeners in the week running up to New Years Day and that they did not want that trend to become habit forming? Certainly for a few years now I have found the programme content with a Guest Editor a good reason to not listen for a week.

    Today
    BBC Radio 4, Monday 13 December

    In an item about the rise in infections caused by Omicron and its impact on the NHS we said: ‘NHS England says between 20 and 30 per cent of critical care beds are occupied by Covid patients…. three quarters of those haven’t been vaccinated.’

    We also said that the ‘vast majority’ of those in critical care are unvaccinated.

    In fact, the most recent figures from the Intensive Care and National Audit Research Centre (ICNARC) show that 51% of intensive care patients in England with Covid in November were vaccinated and 48% were not.

    Today’s crisis.
    They are running out of LFT AND PCR tests.

    This can be laid firmly and squarely on the public sector. DoH, NHS, Civil Servants.
    Not the government.
    But it is they who will get it in the neck.
    While many whose uselessness have caused it will be defined as key workers.

      Spot on, Sluff!

      The MSM are all plonking the blame on Boris and co, and while he was never going to win this one, they still scream and shout that it was his government which is to blame. The BBC are probably the worst offenders, as they wheel in countless ‘experts’ and ‘scientists’ for even more gotchas by weedy interviewers, but the main reason is that the publically funded NHS, the LAs, and the civil serpents have all had a part to play in all this, and they don’t get clobbered at all!

      I suppose, we all really know this, but never expect the awfull BBC to admit that their lefty bunch of nobodies will ever have the guts to expose the waste of resources, and eventually life.

      I’m convinced I came home from germsville with Omicron – severe cold symptoms and runny nose. I also emerged with a dislocated jaw – courtesy of the anaesthetist (I assume) when shoving a pipe down my throat. Its still not right after 5 weeks.

    TWatO Watch #1 – can I believe my ears?

    The BBC appear to be casting doubts about the wisdom of their hero, Tony Blair, in creating separate Parliaments for Scotland, Wales and N.Ireland. For three days now the TWatO and TOADY crews have been pointing out the problems that different rules for dealing with ‘Ommycron’ in the devolved areas of their responsibility.

    Initially, I think the BBC were hoping that the PM would cave in to the demands of some scientists and the Labour Party and introduce strict restrictions for England on Monday. Then the BBC would have a chance to catch the PM or members of his Party breaking the rules. But the BBC were thwarted in that hope.

    Now the BBC appear to be going very cool on devolution and are having contributors on TOADY and TWatO that outline how stupid the rules are in the devolved countries. Surprising. And the PM sounding a note of caution about behaviour on New Year’s Eve has given the BBC another problem. If infections rise in Scotland, Wales and N.Ireland and do not in England, the PM will be doubly justified in his actions.

    Up2 – ive raised the ‘experiment ‘ here before . Trying to figure out the outcome – in a week or 2 – i concluded that the numbers will be fiddled with to show no clear outcome or results which can support all sides .
    I think blair has said in the past that setting up these extremist regimes was a mistake . Certainly very very expensive …

      Fed, I haven’t heard Blair say that but I can believe it. It must be obvious to those with half a brain.

      The Northern Ireland devolution was probably part of the overall Peace Package and to an extent it has worked in the Conservatives and conservatives favour keeping May going until she was replaced by an Election winner.

      As for numbers, highest ever daily figures today – a new record – 183,037 but with only 57 deaths up from a (possibly record low? Stew to confirm) of 18. The bulk of the infections appear to people under 60 years of age.

      102,900 RED squirrels massacred by hunters
      During the early part of the 20th century, gamekeepers and others viewed red squirrels as pests and a bounty was offered on their tails. In Scotland alone, between 1903 and 1946, 102,900 red squirrels were slaughtered.
      Now that memories of this mass killing of red squirrels have disappeared into the murky past, our newly found concern for the survival of the species has come too late – and along with a scapegoat, the grey squirrel. Marketing the red as a ‘national treasure’ and the grey as a ‘pest’ merely transfers the label from one innocent species to another when all along the real problem, as usual, has been human interference in nature.
      The new legislation will potentially give those who get their thrills from killing wild animals the green light to go and massacre squirrels again, this time greys instead of reds – with an official blessing from the government.

        Greys are a pest. It is already legal to shoot pests. Indeed, in the case of greys, its a duty. Those in the know will know that so, where are the massacre’s coming from I ask.

    Priceless. This kind of thing shows exactly what these people are.

    Will the BBC report it I wonder ?.

    The Guardian and the BBC – 2 cheeks of the same arse – are the most disgusting of hypocrites. They don’t care one bit about truth.

      This proves that the management and senior editors at the Guardian are running more scared of their wonky stupid woke staff than telling the truth so their reputation as an unbiased news service is now officially and totally shite.

      There is only one truth Guardian, time you found your balls and come clean!

      But I guess to you lot of vermin a vote is what you decide not what people actually vote for even if you have to bend the figures, now where have we seen that before?

      Average Joe is recognising your tricks now and will not forget or forgive. You have had your run and now is the time for a reckoning.

      John looks to me a very spun claim
      The Dec 15th article was not a poll
      but rather a simple survey form asking you to write an opinion on who you would nominate.
      There was no way for input to show up on the page.
      https://archive.fo/6dKSC

      However there was a discussion on Twitter on who you should vote for
      People said that you could see from Guardian comments that many people were favouring Rowling
      by Dec 18th Guardian had switched off the form from further input.

    So ther BBC are scaremongering as much as possible about COVID cases with lots of statistics to back them up.

    Then this line in the middle:

    ‘Last week they accounted for nearly a third of cases. However, the numbers who are seriously unwell with Covid are still going up.’

    But curiously no numbers at all about that one !.

    How very BBC.
