    Want to know how to counter a conspiracy theory ?

    Openness , accountability against wrong doers does it .

    Think that Jews run the world ?!

    Openeness , accountably will prove the fear is right or wrong .

    Think Freemasonry rules the world?!

    Openness , accountability will prove the fear right or wrong .

    Think lizards rule the world?

    Openness and accountability will prove the fear right or wrong .

    Now mine .
    Think Gramscians try to rule , not the world, but Western world by surreptitious means .
    Openness and accountability would prove me wrong .

    I’m willing to go tête-à-tête in a court with a Gramscian / BBC .
    If he / she describes themselves as one .

    I actually hate conspiracy theories. For a start why upset yourself?
    But with the BBC if they haven’t been infected by the Gramscians why are they so biased ?
    And why is there no openness , accountability about it ?

      Warmest New Year’s Eve recorded in Somerset ushers in 2022

      “Forget your fleece and coat – it’s liberating to take a pleasant New Year’s Eve stroll in just your T-shirt.

      But it doesn’t bode well for the future.

      The Met Office say the UK’s record temperatures have all been elevated by manmade climate change which has raised temperatures globally by 1.1C.

      Cold records are still being broken, as in the Beast from the East storm in 2018.

      But the Met Office say warm weather records are being broken nine times more frequently – a clear sign of an over-heating planet.

      The winter wildfires in Colorado are even arguably more alarming than unseasonal warmth in the UK.

      It’s too soon to say what role human-driven climate change may have played in the disaster – but it’s the latest episode of regular weather patterns being disrupted.

      Meanwhile, different regions of Alaska are experiencing record high and low temperatures at the same time.” 🤔


      • Up2snuff says:

        BBC, “Meanwhile, different regions of Alaska are experiencing record high and low temperatures at the same time.”

        Couldn’t be down to weather, could it?


    • NCBBC says:

      Climate does change but not to due to a trace gas like CO2, and will not stop by driving electric cars or other fashionable nonsense.

      The climate we have is because of our position in the orbit. Climate stability is maintained by dynamic variation of the earth’s position in the solar system.

      Climate change is normal, and is part and parcel of maintaining dynamic stability, without which we’re cooked so to speak. No change and we are dead, as stability is maintained by dynamic change. An example, a bikes balance is maintained only because it is dynamically stable. It has to move to be balanced.

    Queen finds way to get blade on Tony Blair’s neck

    Awards absolutely suck these days
    It’s a total waste to award people who have already had big recognition, like winning a gold medal. oscars etc.
    .. It should be for the unnoticed trainers etc.


    • tarien says:

      It really does begger belief that our Queen should be coerced, to lay such an honour on T Blair probably the biggest traitor this nation has ever seen and we have had to continually endure his wretched face across the TV screens, pontificating on various subjects he knows not an awful lot about. The honours list has now sunk to its lowest ever, how sad. Frankly no MP, no Civil Servant affiliated to Parliament, no sports men or women, no special advisors to the Government such as Prof: Whitty should ever have any kind of honour, theyn have no need of it-only those who men and women who have given such wonderful service to us the public, often unseen un-sung heroes. Anwyay people have a healthy, peacful New Year.


    • Deborah says:

      I wondered why T Blair got his knighthood now. I have absolutely no evidence but note one thing that has changed is the death of The Duke of Edinburgh.


  4. StewGreen says:

    Whatever the special day, I still come across stories about the BBC like this
    cos there are so many around.


  5. StewGreen says:

    Covid : despite a registration of 203 deaths, it’s still catchup stuff
    and the trend is still below 100/day
    The case trend is actually lower than yesterday.


  6. brexiteerkent says:

    So, the foreign land that is londonistan has joined with the BBC to celebrate the New Year with lasers, fireworks and a ‘celebration of culture’ and of taking the knee. Would have been nice to have red white and blue, British national icons and British anthems introduced by a non box ticker .. Not a hope. I remember what this country used to be and am very sad.


    • Deborah says:

      Brexiteerkent, you are not alone. Stupidly we switched on BBC1 to see in the new year. Black guy speaking as we switched on, it may have been very intellectual but we couldn’t understand and couldn’t connnect so we watched a few minutes of Andrew Doyle repeat on GBNews before returning. The music with the fireworks was awful to our ears but being over 21, Handel’s firework music would have suited us better but the BBC just about did ok to Auld Lang Syne. Then Kylie and a very camp youth so we switched off all together.

      It is time the BBC remembered it is only about a quarter of the population who are under 21 and half of those should be in bed at midnight.

      Happy new year to all on this site esp Fedup2 and the backroom boys.

    All things come to an end.

    I dont bother with twitter etc, but lazy “journalists” do and think they are representative of current opinion, which is why so many get it wrong at election time

    When in shops and hotels around the country having casual conversations I am surprised at the number of people that are similar in opinions to those on this site when I am led to believe via the media otherwise

    I think outside of London and antisocial media, this country still exists and when the very vocal have to earn a living and find life is not as easy as they thought without a student grant or parents to finance their life, they may have to reframe their opinions also, especially regarding the diversity nazism

    We have now clear evidence of racism and lies by the bbc asian racist employees regarding jews attacked in London. This madness has not gone un noticed around the world.

    “BBC Refuses to Apologize for False Report About Jewish Attack Victims”


  9. Zephir says:

    “The BBC has chosen to lie and pick a fight with Jews”

    “It is quite a feat for the BBC to have found two ways in recent day to antagonise the Jewish community, both of which appear to be entirely deliberate.

    Last week BBC News produced a half-hour documentary about the resurgence of antisemitism in Britain. Bizarrely, it made no mention of Jeremy Corbyn or the EHRC’s report into Labour’s antisemitism, as if they played no role.


  10. Zephir says:

    The reporter, Tom Brada, ended by giving a platform to Islamic YouTuber Mohammed Hijab, who notoriously filmed himself in Golders Green on Shabbat during the Gaza conflict in May in front of a billboard with the words “Did we not learn from the Holocaust?”


  11. Zephir says:

    And yet. the “notorious ” Tommy Robinson, for example is given no platform whatsoever, in fact, vilified by the bbc, for having opinions about another particular religion and culture, and their fondness for gang rape of white children, in every city in this country they occupy, funny that

      But the NHS was proposed by ‘the Tories’ before the 1945 election.

      If they had won then the likliehood is that the NHS would still have been formed but would be ‘a wicked Tory invention, designed to make GPs rich’.


    • MarkyMark says:

      Is the NHS a charity or paid for service?


    • StewGreen says:

      FFS That is Harry Smith’s Twitter account
      He died in 2018 and his son put his own name on the account
      a reply says .. Here is *Tory Minister of Health in 1944* spelling out how the NHS will be universal, comprehensive and free at the point of use.
      It was in 1945 Tory manifesto.
      Tories voted against legislation because it appropriated the assets of charities.

      It is fair to question the Sir Tom thing
      the whole thing was hijacked as a PR exercise to build the NHS religion.
      A department that gets £130 billion pa from the taxpayer doesn’t need another £10m present.


      • Rob in Cheshire says:

        The money Sir Tom raised did not go to the NHS, it went to “NHS Charities”, to buy chocolate for nurses.

    • tarien says:

      In fact it should be Sir Anthony not Tony-anyway it should not happen at all, the man has done nothing to warrant in any degree such an honour-unless of course he made a huge donation somewhere or to someone. Simply Ghastly as would be said, in fact an insult to all those wonderful people who give so mucyh to this nation mostly without a thanks from Government.

    • JohnC says:

      I’m pretty sure Tony had arranged this a long time ago but they have been waiting for people to forget him so they could slip it through.

      Not the worst ever though. That honour belongs to sir Nick of Clegg. An act which instantly rubbished every single knighthood ever given.

    London teen homicides: Boy’s stabbing is record 30th killing

    I had to look for this story because it’s gone from the front page already (if it was ever on it). However ‘Tracy Beaker star Dani Harmer ‘fine’ after hospital drama during panto’ is a headline apparently.

    And yet again the BBC hypocrites don’t go anywhere near the enormous elephant in the room. Here’s the first few names from the list of victims and see if you can guess what it is.

    Anas Mezenner
    Romario Opia
    Hani Solomon

    Tai Jordan O’Donnell
    Mazaza Owusu-Mensah

    • Zephir says:

      Recently read a book by an ex met police officer who managed to reduce black on black crimes in Haringey by 95% by shutting down crack houses

      just sayin


  20. Zephir says:

    “A crack house, or crack den, is a home or other building where drug dealers and people who use crack cocaine buy, sell and use the drug.
    What Is It Like Inside A Crack House?

    When most people think of crack houses, they picture filthy, run-down trailers or public housing units in unsafe areas.

    Many crack houses fit this stereotype. They’re characterized by uncleanliness, risky sexual behavior, and violence.

    When you’re addicted to crack cocaine, it’s extremely difficult to focus on anything besides getting and using crack. That’s why most crack houses aren’t well-maintained.

    For example, when entering a crack house, you might see overflowing toilets, spoiled food, stained walls or peeling wallpaper, and dirty or damaged floors.

    You may also find the floors scattered with trash as well as items used to make and smoke crack. These items may include:

    baking soda
    glass pipes
    tin foil
    hollowed-out light bulbs
    aluminum cans

    Risky Sexual Behavior

    Some people in crack houses have sex with numerous people without protection. This often occurs because crack boosts your sex drive and impairs your judgment.

    In addition, some people who are addicted to crack exchange sex for crack money. In fact, some crack houses double as brothels (houses of prostitution). These establishments often face high rates of sexually transmitted diseases and sexual violence, including rape.

    Because crack cocaine is an illegal drug, many crack houses have guards who use violence, including gun violence, to keep people out. The guards and other occupants may also use violence to resolve conflicts among buyers, sellers, and first time users.

    Similarly, some people who run crack houses violently discipline those who work for them.”


  21. Zephir says:

    Affluent Kensington and Chelsea has one of the highest number of crack cocaine and heroin addicts in the country, a study has found.

    The London borough – which has the highest average property prices in the UK – has 1,451 regular users of the Class A drugs.

    That works out at 13.31 per every 1,000 people, according to the most recent figures – from 2016/17- released by Public Health England.

    The startling statistics put Kensington and Chelsea – where house prices cost on average £1.4million – in the top 25 out of 151 local authority areas in England.


  22. Zephir says:

    And whilst the bbc continues to promote and admire violent misogynistic black “performers” who take the place of a male role model for some who have no father in the family what is the outcome ?

    “X-Is Coming”

    “Man, if we was up north, niggas would have been fucked you/But then we in the streets, niggas should haven been stuck you/Plucked you like a chicken wit’ your head cut off/They’ll find you wit’ your back open and your legs cut off/And as for your man, don’t you ever in your mothafuckin’ life/Know when I gotta gun come at me wit’ a knife, a’ight?/And forgetting you ever saw me is the best thing to do/Don’t give a fuck about your family, they’ll be resting with you

      Thats going to work well at the church nativity celebration

      (he probably missed his history, geography, science etc a bit like the bbc)


  23. Zephir says:

    And the fawning bbc:

    DMX, American rapper and actor, dies aged 50

    The performer, whose real name was Earl Simmons, had been placed on life support and died with his family by his side.

    In a statement, his family said he was “a warrior who fought till the very end”.

    “Earl’s music inspired countless fans across the world and his iconic legacy will live on forever,” they said.”

    Erm, IMHO thank goodness its gone quiet


  24. Zephir says:

    So many elephants in so many rooms at the racist biased bbc

    people on this site speak their minds, they may not have the same opinions as others on this site, but they rarely lie (SG is here to check)

    the racist bbc DO lie (see above ) and apparently will never apologise whilst demanding apologies left, right and centre from all and sundry

    The consequence of “diversity” ie letting the pakis run the news, look at the names how many smiths and jones ?

    Doesn’t look like Johnny. Or Alec.


  26. Sluff says:

    The BBC New Year programme featured an adolescent male singer whose primary function appeared to be that he was a male wearing a flowing wraparound skirt.
    And did I spot a drag queen back up band at one stage?

    How do I know. It was put on by our party hosts.

    Yep, it may be New Year but BBC narratives must be maintained.


    • Lunchtime Loather says:

      I’ve no idea who he was but presumably he has had his hair cut like that and wore that “outfit” for a bet, and he lost. I was in bed by 11:45.

    Apologies for repeating this, but it demonstrates vividly, only local news, a muslim racist attack one will never see headlined at the biased racist bbc

    Shocking attack as woman punched unconscious in ‘Coronavirus rage’ racist incident

    Police have launched an investigation as Meera Solanki was attacked after she stepped in when Chinese friend was told: “Take your f***ing coronavirus back home!”


  28. Zephir says:

    And yet the bbc have to look further for their agenda (not Birmingam):

    Haridwar: Police case after outrage in India over anti-Muslim hate speech

    thats speech by the way, not a muslim in England hitting a woman unconscious because of her race

    Whitty & Van-Tam knighted in New Year Honours

    And the seasonal good cheer doesn’t end there…

    Blair becomes ‘Sir Tony’ and joins top royal order

    It’s like all our birthdays, Christmasses and New Years have come at once!

    My cup runneth over, as they used to say in the bible, or perhaps more appropriate in these days of global crony corporate and deep state synergy, would be that old Ferrero Rocher catchphrase – Oh Ambassador, you’re spoiling us!

    Lumley and Redgrave become dames

    And that, kiddies, is about as close to a traditional live pantomime as many of you will have experienced this year.

    Tracy Beaker star taken to hospital during panto‘ – don’t panic, don’t panic, kids, your naughty BBC are doing a bait and switch click bait trick:

    Tracy Beaker star Dani Harmer ‘fine’ after hospital drama during panto

    Track and Trace, eh? Please don’t tell me our Trace has got the big “C”

    I can’t recall which comic to credit but I remember the gag about his old granny dying of the big C. Cancer, he was asked? No. Spontaneous Combustion – we think she know it was coming when she wrote her will on a piece of tin foil.

    The heavily pregnant actress had to leave Wednesday’s production of Cinderella at the Bath Theatre Royal… She said on Friday she had had Braxton Hicks

    Quick, I’ll have to google this character… probably an actor, a rap artist, or maybe some You Tube influencer… I have to see who’s been bonking our Tracey Beaker and put her up the duff… so who is this Braxton bloke…?

    I jest, of course.

    Once again this year we may have been cowering under the duvet more often than setting out bravely for the commute – but as David Bowie once suggested – we could be heroes…

    New Year Honours 2022: Wales’ Covid heroes recognised

    Men of Harlech on to glory
    See your banner famed in story

    Sorry, Boyos, all the BBC Welsh heroes are women and at least one of them has that typical pink hair dye, isn’t it?

    New Years Day, or just a repeat? Not that our BBC takes a day off: ‘Coronavirus daily update

    You may remember that big Brexit vote where the British people registered their alarm at uncontrolled mass immigration?

    Visa deal to lure India. Relaxed immigration rules could allow thousands more to move from subcontinent‘ (Times)

    Have we really some desperate shortage of south asians over here?

    My rather racialist old dad, bless him, resident for years in the London suburbs, told me recently he already felt like General Custer of the 7th Cavalry “Surrounded by Indians”

    On the whole covid thing (sorry, it is THE ongoing news story), the Guardian seems – tacitly at least – to acknowledge a shift in public opinion: ‘Covid advisors reveal ‘tidal wave’ of threats and abuse‘ – perhaps the boffins have at last simply had to default to their original 2020 outlook concerning the public response to lockdowns:

    We couldn’t get away with it in Europe, we thought” (Professor Neil Ferguson quoted in the Times December 2020)


  30. JohnC says:

    Watched ‘No time to die’ last night in the distant hope it might be OK.

    I was wrong. I tried not to laugh out loud when I saw the ‘new’ 007 who looked like she sits around watching loose women and eating chocolate all day. The least convincing casting ever for all the wrong reasons.

    Even Moneypenny (who is now black in a classic piece of cultural appropriation hypocrisy) has been promoted to the lab and was solving the case instead of typing.

    And I may have missed some, but I think ALL the evil henchmen were white.

    In a just world, it would be allowed to die. But this horse is going to be flogged for a long while yet and it’s eventual demise from ‘the cancer of the Left’ is going to be slow and painful.

    First mistake of 2022. Tuned into the Today Programme on waking.

    Guest editor Mina Smallman.

    I will probably sound nasty, unsympathetic and mean-spirited here towards someone who has clearly suffered terribly but …

    Why was this longwinded, pompous and sanctimonious race-baiter editing the programme? It was awful.

    She has forgiven the murderer of her two daughters but not the two cops who took photos of the dead bodies and shared them on WhatsApp. Even Mishal Husain had to question this weird stance.

    What the cops did was distasteful, certainly. I didn’t think it deserved 33 months in prison.

    Mina Smallwood’s wrath is focussed solely on the racist police. Not a word on the Middle Eastern ethnicity of her daughters’ murderer.

    Instead all her pain and hurt is directed at her favourite target – the phantom of institutional racism.

    Finishing up with a Maya Angelou poem. Say no more.


    • JohnC says:

      The question we will never know the answer to is what punishment they would have received if they had taken pictures of two murdered white male brothers. I bet it wouldn’t have even been reported.

      What is so terribly wrong about this story is that the media have feigned far, far more outrage and publicity to this than the guy who stabbed them both to death. The two crimes are incomparable.

    How quaint, we have heads cut off in public in the UK by muslims, muslim bombes killing people in the UK and yet; the bbc are

    Police in the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand have launched an investigation after Hindu leaders called for violence against Muslims.

    Videos from a meeting of Hindu religious leaders showing provocative speeches went viral earlier this week, sparking outrage.

    The event took place in the holy town of Haridwar between 17 and 19 December.

    Police said they had not opened a case until Thursday because there had been no official complaints before that.

    There have been no arrests and the police case names only one man – Waseem Rizvi, a Muslim who says he has converted to Hinduism and is now known as Jitendra Narayan Tyagi.

    Police said a case had been registered against Mr Tyagi and unnamed “others” under charges of “promoting hatred between religious groups”. Social media users, however, have identified many of the speakers in the videos who are important religious leaders often seen in the company of ministers and members from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

    Does anyone know what the ‘honours system ‘ is for ? I looked at it to see if I had got an OBE for ‘services to moderating ‘but noticed I wasn’t on the list . A bloke got one for ‘services to hip hop ‘ and someone got one for ‘services to canoeing ‘…. But where was the knighthood for Mr D Beckham for services to…. Mr D Beckham ?

    Blair took the knighthood because his financial arrangements can’t be made public if he were to take the peerage – like the rest of the former PMs ……

    … I’ve been listening to the tedious tick box ‘correspondents look ahead ‘… they describe the false president as a lame duck – with no mention of his mental health – but they all leapt up and down saying President Trump got booed at a Rally . …

    They seemed happy that macron will get re elected and treat the UK even worse … as we see project fear starting January with ‘border controls chaos ‘ – for goods of course – not people who still have free travel from France to England via a dinghy …
    Lastly these wealthy BBC woke kidult ‘journos ‘ embraced the Gordon Brown ‘vaccinate the world ‘ crap …. Look after Blighty first and make other countries pay their way …. Nothing is free….

          • Doublethinker says:

            As I understand it Commissioner Dick is accountable to the Mayor of London not to the Home Secretary.
            Another example of how devolution and the creation of City Mayors has diminished the power of Westminster . This has also meant that those living outside England or those who live in large conurbations in England now have in effect twice the voting power of those who live in rural England.

              I didn’t know that, DT, and to think that the Met has to kow-tow to the reduced idiot in some sort of mayoral garments is such a travesty of justice, let’s consider the consequences of many more stabbings in the awful Londonistan.

              Hopefully, they’ll all stab each other to death, and make the place much nicer for normal citizens.


    • Up2snuff says:

      Fed, I listened to the re-run/repeat of ‘TCLA’. Broadly agree with the points you make about the programme. I was a little surprised about the nations omitted by The Correspondents. In the EU, no mention of Italy. In the wider sphere of the Mediterranean, no mention of ‘migrants’ and no mention of Israel. That then leads on to, inevitably, Iran and Syria – with Russia and the USA involved in both.

      Then there was zero mention of Oceana, either in relation to Covid but also Climate Change. In NZ, Ardern has been successful on the former. What will she do with the latter, because NZ is dependent on both ships and aircraft and there is much travel between the Islands and Australia? The greater part of Oceana, Australia, seems to be AGW/CC sceptic at the very least. They have been less successful at dealing with Covid and have very stringent restrictions. At what point do Governments lose control over their population after applying restrictions? Australia would be a place to watch for that.

      And that ‘circles back’ (in Jen Psaki speak) to Scotland. I’ve seen a rumble or two that Scots are not happy with the Wee Hen cancelling their Hogmanay. The BBC in the 8 a.m. News this morning tried to make it sound as though Scots were obeying their Fuhrer but unfortunately, the BBC correspondent in Edinburgh left his tape recorder recording for too long. As the clocks struck midnight, there was a suspiciously loud cheer and Happy New Year cries to be heard from the ‘non-existent crowds’.

      It was also very notable that no-one mentioned the US President’s doubtful health and cognitive state. I remember how Sopey made a big thing of that for Donald Trump. Trump was given a clean bill of health by his physician. Complete silence from the TCLA about Biden on that. You would think they would learn from their mistakes, wouldn’t you? Not a bit of it at the BBC!

        I do wonder if the people who produce that kind of programme have any regard for the listener . Surely they must ‘know ‘ that those listening are likely to be better informed on world affairs than the average ( I’m not climbing on a pedestal or being critical – just factual )

        So to be treated to a lot of waffle – but more importantly – omission by light weight purveyors of propaganda ( see EU Adler ) is pretty insulting .

        But I guess the explanation is that the ‘journos ‘ are not what they were – have no independent thought – and know that only approved views can be expressed .

        Terms like ‘far right ‘ which the Far Left uses as a weapon of abuse and obverscatIon are readily deployed by BBC types to score points with their bosses …. But at the price of failing to explain / inform the audience which pays for them .

        I see that the excellent IS The BBC biased site carries and even more detailed of that programme ….link above ….

    I caught about three minutes of the BBCs and Runt Khan’s New Year’s celebrations (brainwashing).
    God, it was awful.

    Some nice fireworks and interesting lasers, but then the oh so tediously predictable, ethnic “poet” waffling away and then the backdrop of endless woke platitudes that followed. I don’t want to be lectured about racism on NYE…or any other time. Give it a rest, you parasites.

    NYE used to be a great excuse for a knees up. A lot of dancing, singing and (dare I say it) snogging). Those were the days, my friends… Now the establishment have ordained that it’s half an hour of woke indoctrination. Celebrate BLM. Bend the knee. Inclusion. Fret about the environment. Save the planet.


    Another glass of Merlot and back to my book…

    Happy New Year!

      Is he Islamophobic by ignoring the Islamic New Year?

      The Islamic New Year (Arabic: رأس السنة الهجرية, Raʿs as-Sanah al-Hijrīyah), also called the Hijri New Year or Arabic New Year, is the day that marks the beginning of a new lunar Hijri year, and is the day on which the year count is incremented. The first day of the Islamic year is observed by most Muslims on the first day of the month of Muharram. The epoch (reference date) of the Islamic era was set as 622 Common Era (CE), the year of the emigration of Muhammad and his followers from Mecca to Medina, known as the Hijra.[1] All religious duties, such as prayer, fasting in the month of Ramadan, and pilgrimage, and the dates of significant events, such as celebration of holy nights and festivals, are calculated according to the Islamic calendar.

  38. Sluff says:

    Yet again, the New Years Honours at the senior levels is a public sector love-in, where gongs are awarded to those whose principal skill would be appear to be turning up for work and doing what they are paid to do, well or otherwise.

    Time was when the gongs were a reward for public sector folk who earned less than their private sector counterparts. However these days those pay differences no longer exist. And that’s without the job security, long holidays, and fantastic pensions schemes – worth 24% of salary for teachers for example that go routinely to the public sector.

    So where are the awards for e.g. private sector shop workers? You remember them? They stayed at work, not working from home like endless cushy civil servants, all through the pandemic when it was at its worst, with high case rates, no vaccines, and few masks. Or how about the bus drivers who died out of all proportion, often ferrying the covid carrying public to hospital on their bus and getting seriously I’ll in the process ?

    I reckon public sector is 10 times over-represented compared with the private sector.
    Now there’s a real need for ‘equality’, one unlikely to feature in BBC stories or at any Equality quango any time soon.

    An utter disgrace.

      So so many ‘ordinary’ people really deserving recognition yet it’s mainly the civil service time servers and the likes of Whitty getting them for doing a job they are very well paid for.

      Knighthoods etc are meaningless now, just for yes men and arse crawlers.
      A bit like the Oscars and the other miscellaneous luvvie awards, just virtue signalling by the right-ons.

        Thanks Fedup2. I am very old fashioned and I really don’t like swearing. I was a student in the late 70s and the Paki shop was much appreciated for being open when nowhere else was.

    • JohnC says:

      That is an interesting point though isn’t it ?.

      Why should we not be allowed to use a word which is not offensive and not racist (it refers to a Nationality, not a race) just because some people say they don’t like it ?.

      It is less offensive than ‘Kiwi’ or ‘Aussie’ as it is a simple abbreviation of the country, as is ‘Brit’. But I’ll bet my house the BBC would delete a HYS comment within 5 minutes if it contained it.

      I would say the word ‘Gammon’ is far, far more offensive but isn’t it odd how that one is OK to these stupendous leftist hypocrites ?.


      • Fedup2 says:

        As a result of one objection ( that’s the way I read it )I won’t use the P word again on this site . I will just use the letter ‘P’ . As a person there is no word that offends me apart from ‘Brit ‘ which I always associate with IRA scum . But as moderator I have to moderate the language .
        Every so often I think about giving up on this site completely – this has reminded me of that and I wonder if it’s worth bothering with . I only do it because it’s the only way I know of fighting the BBC after refusing to pay for it .

        • Beltane says:

          I can only agree that moderation must be a thankless task at times Feds, but it’s a valuable one and always appreciated. Happy New Year.

          On the current theme, I used the word ‘Boche’ recently, being deliberately provocative, and yet no-one commented or challenged its use – which tends to show how facile and fashionable the objections to ‘non-woke’ labels really are.

          To many it seems referring to Germans as Huns, Boche, Jerries and Nazis is still, if not acceptable at least only mildly offensive, yet to call all the British ‘Scotch’ for instance, would no doubt get Polly filling Guardian column-inches within minutes.

          As for your suggested P, or perhaps M or I, just like those German labels some would say they have been earned rather than simply and lazily granted.


        • JohnC says:

          Well, I don’t like the word much either but it’s the principle that the reason they ban it is absolutely unacceptable which makes me defend it. Someone will complain whatever word is used once it represents them – I’m not even sure what is allowed for black people these days. Though they use ‘black’ themselves which makes complaining about us using it a complete farce.

          I hope you can find the motivation to keep going with this site : it’s far more grown up than any of the other forums and almost all the content is absolutely relevant to the bias of the BBC. The pathetic nit-picking from maxi actually proves he has nothing better to criticise us for – and you can be sure he spends a LOT of time researching everything we write.

          I personally think somewhere to keep a record of what the BBC are doing is invaluable. We have no idea who might read the comments- and if we keep them grown-up and accurate (as opposed to the nasty schoolboy spite the BBC’s own HYS are full of), people might take them seriously. Plus the rest of us get to find out all the other stuff the BBC leftists are up to – like on twitter which I won’t touch with a bargepole.


          • Beltane says:

            Sadly the world is being swept by violent urges to take umbrage, whether for skin colour, sexuality, diet, religion or politics with many of the words we are discussing acting as catalysts.

            Of them all, the ‘n’ word is perhaps the most specious, not simply because those who choose to be most deeply offended by it are happy to use it in everyday speech – provided the speech is confined within the same ethnic group – but its origins are so transparent and pedestrian.

            The descriptive, inoffensive and accurately defined word ‘negro’ of Latin origin, pronounced with the accent of a Southern US American becomes ‘nigra’ with a very small step required to create the ultimate in umbrage.

            That’s it. End of. No insult, offence, diminishment or slight intended.

            Where such labels might apply would have been in the more commonly used word to describe shipments of negro slaves, which was ‘cattle’.
