    I have just watched the 6pm BBC1 news with Hugh Edwards reporting about Novak Djokovic. This has obviously caused a dilemma within the BBC. They showed his mother (twice) saying how dreadful it is that he is imprisoned (until Monday?) and he must stay strong. The BBC are desperate to side with the elite who are entitled to do what they want (especially if they work for the BBC or are friends of the BBC. The BBC also want to support the human rights because that is how they support immigration. But on the other hand the BBC are strong supporters of vaccinations. I can see they don’t know which way to turn. It is so long since the BBC reported anything without first agreeing the line to take, they cannot do it. Dear BBC, if anyone from your organisation reads this post, just suggest to the higher ups that for once just report the facts and move on.

    No more proof is required of the collaboration between the Democrats and the BBC than the endless coverage the BBC are giving to the anniversary of what they call the riot at the Capitol.

    The BBC constantly refer to the “rioters” when there was in fact very little rioting.

    The only person killed at the event was an unarmed women, shot in cold-blood by a police officer, I would call that murder myself.

    Constant reference to the “lie” that the election was rigged with no back-up whatsoever and lots of evidence uncovered to support the claim.

    Now why would they do this?

    The answer is mid-terms…. both the BBC and the Democrats are quaking in their boots that things might swing in a direction they don’t like so they are carrying out a coordinated campaign of mis-information and hysteria along with the corrupt US judicial system and the FBI in hopes that people will be shooed away from a Republican resurgence and wipeout victory.

    I think the Republicans will win back, Trump will be back and I can only imagine the penalties he might extract for the vile and lying treatment he has been given.

    I also think the FBI would be in for a tough time too.

    Bring it on!

    I hope the night of the mid-term results is a re-run of the night of the Brexit vote, I would love to see those crestfallen, frightened BBC faces on screen.

    I hope he buries the whole lot of the sneaky pile of smug crappers!

      The Harris-Biden stuff I caught earlier on SlyNews was predictable puke… I wonder how much of it was scripted and if there’s one of those multiscreen mashups of them all saying the same thing?

      I see that Joe Rogan’s doctor said he has prescribed ivermectin to hundreds of Congress Members and the media completely hid that.

        You miss the point!

        In 2022 the BBC would have us believe that Britain had always been ‘black’ and their latest dramas push that falsehood. It is through films and the like that most of us get our ideas about history.

        I was being sarcastic.

        You are quite right that re-patriated colonials no doubt made up the majority of ‘Jamaican born’.

        ‘History Debunked’ goes into this matter further – why is the BBC obsessed with black people, why not Chinese, Indians or even the French? Why aren’t these ‘minorities’ promoted?

    US Capitol attack: Rioters held dagger to the throat of America – Biden
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-59898559

    This video of Biden is extraordinary.

    Firstly he’s slurring and faltering like someone who’s not even quite sure where he is.

    Second the speech they have written for him is as full of hate as I’ve ever heard. It’s one long personal and very spiteful attack against Trump.

    This is the kind of rhetoric I only expect from 3rd world dictatorships. They are clearly desperate now. And the BBC are pushing every word of it in our faces.

    Even Lurch says:

    ‘Biden’s rhetorical shift could represent a strategic shift, as well – a decision that the Democratic base can most effectively be rallied with anger, not hope.’

    Everything about Biden and the Democrats is lies. Right down to pretending he is in any way in charge. They are really showing us the true colours of the ‘tolerant’ Left now. So much for bringing the nation together : it’s more divided than ever. Could this be the trigger for unrest ?.

        Stew, yes, I wondered about L/H drive and also illegal to have child in front seat. Then I looked a bit more closely.

        It appears to be a Renault Clio 3dr hatch but I think it is a larger car. But it was the background that did it: it is summer! And there was no need for masks, outdoors, in summer in the UK. If it’s after 19 July, no need for masks at all. And no need to wear one in a car although you see people doing that in the UK. Well done on researching the US origin. But UK cars have tanks on the right as well. All my previous r/h drive cars did but they were 5-door hatchbacks.

        The woman is wearing gloves. But the pumps seem all the wrong colour after the introduction of E10 fuel and the return to facemasks. Could of course be a family terrified witless by the endless Covid propaganda.

        Well done Stew, though. You are the only entrant so you win the Grand Prize of Eccles’ piece of paper. Don’t spend that stamp cash all at once. And memo to Scrobie: am waiting for you to take the top of the Thread on another notch.

          i imagined a situation where the woman felt she might have Covid
          Say, if she was driving to the test centre
          Then she might wear a mask even outside to ensure she doesn’t cough over other people refilling her car
          Anyway she has to put on a mask to pay anyway and it could be she paid first and is now filling.

    Being an armchair strategist there doesn’t seem to be too much coverage of the Azerbaijan ‘coup’ …

    This seems strange to me because of the concern about energy supplies to Europe from Russia. To me Putin now has control of another big energy source and will strengthen his economic war against the West .

    The timing doesn’t seem to be noted either – both New Year in the East as well as America looking inward – one of those stunts the Russians love to carry out ….

    Am I missing something ?

    Tonight on GBNews there was discussion of whether the 12 billion pounds borrowed to be exported to ‘overseas aid ‘ should be diverted to reduce the domestic fuel bills . The current crop of politicians of all colours wouldn’t dream of it .

    The BBC continues to pump out massive amounts of misinformation and black propaganda about January 6 with the clear intent of manufacturing a completely false narrative about events, causes and Trump himself. Had to smile at the obvious disappointment in the voices as they tell us that they thought Trump would vanish into obscurity after losing…and yet here he is large as life and still a threat to them….lol.

    Kind of odd isn’t it that the BBC expends so much time on a relatively small event that they characterise as an ‘insurrection’ and yet spend no time whatsoever examining the actual insurrection and coup that went on as the Demcorats literally stole the election with the help of their media and high tech friends, Putin and the BBC….and completely ignore the BLM/Antifa terror campaign that the Democrats used to help them consolidate their power….but coming back to bite them as cities with defunded police forces collapse under massive crime waves….not that the BBC is interested.

    And yet they wonder why Trump is still the Great White cricling their boats.

    Does this passage remind you of anything?…from the Telegraph today…

    ‘It was the White House Clinton machine that prepared the dossier on the ‘vast Right-wing conspiracy’, playing up the most absurd allegations to muddy the waters, and inviting chosen reporters from their camp to do hatchet jobs on critics.’

    That was in 1993 and yet is a perfect description of what happened after Trump got elected…the democrats prepared a fake dossier which their media friends used to spread the anti-Trump black propaganda and to trash the Trump term in Office and to overturn US politics…and eventually to steal the next election.

    Why is there an article in the Telegraph about 1993? It’s by a journalist who wants to put the record straight as the BBC’s Gabriel Gatehouse twists and corrupts what was said and events that happened, manipulating facts, making facts up to suit his own narrative about January 6…Gatehouse has form on this…he did a hatchet job on ‘right-wing’ groups in Europe…

    ‘Is the “alt right” on the rise in Europe? And if so, is it a fringe movement – or something bigger than that? BBC Newsnight’s Gabriel Gatehouse reports from Austria and France.

    Gatehouse didn’t actually listen to what was being told to him. He had a narrative and he stuck to it….what we got was a constant drumbeat warning us of the rise of a new Nazi regime….Gatehouse freely used words like ethnic cleansing, Nazis and references to concentration camps…just the usual BBC dangerously dismissive and contemptuous treatment telling us these groups had ideas ‘beyond the boundaries of the acceptable’…..er like controlling immigration and stopping Islamisation? Very controversial.

    A group in France says that if immigrants don’t want to integrate they will offer them money and the chance to go to a country where they will feel more at home…not force them but offer them. Gatehouse says this is ‘ethnic cleansing’. Never mind the UK government already does it.

    Are you starting to get the idea that Gatehouse doesn’t have a clue what he is saying and what the reality is and has his own agenda to peddle?’

    ‘The BBC wanted to tell a story about runaway conspiracies, and use me – and my reports from decades ago – as a theatre prop ‘
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/01/06/despite-heard-didnt-load-gun-capitol-hill-attack/

    ‘By and large, the BBC ought to be on the side of those at least trying to ferret out the truth, one should have thought.’

    Anyone who knows the BBC at all understands that the BBC is not interested in the truth…they have a tale to tell and facts, truth, impartiality, balance, honesty, integrity nor accuracy will not be allowed to get in the way of their version of events.

Though noticeable that Trump and the DUP get vilified by the BBC for their views on abortion and yet the Pope never does….never mind that the BBC shouldn’t have a ‘view’ on abortion it shouldn’t be using that to selectively attack people or groups it wants to demonise…such as Trump and the DUP….it was Mishal Husain who said th DUP were backward and unpleasant for thir Christian views on abortion and gay marriage….lol…a Muslim lecturing Christians for ‘backward and unpleasant views’!

    Curious how the BBC forgets that several players have been granted exemptions to enter Australia as it gleefully reports on Novak Djokovic’s plight.

    The BBC is quite happy to suggest Novak Djokovic is arrogant and entitled for thinking he can break the rules and that he is actually breaking the rules by going to Australia….and of course just love Malcolm Scott’s comments such as ‘rules are rules’…the BBC repeatedly telling us how angry Aussies were at Novak Djokovic as they’d had to suffer so much under lockdowns.

    Hmmm…rules are rules…and those rules, allowing exemptions, were made by Scott’s government…and he seems to be changing them himself in a grubby attempt to make himself look good by vilifying Novak Djokovic.

    Scott imposed the drastic and useless lockdowns and all that suffering is his fault….Novak Djokovic is perfectly entitled to ask for an exemption under the rules made by Scott…if there is any anger about this it should be directed at Scott…one for the lockdowns and two for the exemption rules….not Novak Djokovic’s fault at all…and yet that’s not at all what the BBC’s narrative suggests as it also tries to crucify Novak Djokovic….along with all peole who don’t want to be vaccinated.

    Odd huh? that the BBC is suddenly very quiet about Bames and covid….so many of them don’t want to be vaccinated and yet we get nothing pointing the finger at them from the BBC. When the BBC claimed Bames were dying ‘disproportionately’ due to covid it was quick to blame systemic racism and make it headline news…now? radio silence.

    Of course the reason Bames are reluctant, apparently, to get vaccinated is distrust of the systemically racist institutions…and who is it that has put such ideas into their heads that they can’t trust anything run by Whites?…The BBC.

    The BBC is the disseminator of dangerous fake news and conspiracy theories that drives the anti-vax movement in the Bame communities.

    No it didn’t. It ran into a sonar array being towed for hundreds of meter behind.

    The BBC are starting to twist headlines into lies without even realising now. I suspect it has become such standard journalistic practice, they are doing it without thought.

    It’s about the level of ‘The Sun’. Another indicator of the calibre of staff they now employ. It’s what happens when ability is not the main reason people are given jobs.

      Russian AA shoots down RAF plane

      When Royal Navy frigate HMS Northumberland was tracking a Russian submarine in late 2020, it got a bit closer than expected. The AA hit the British plane’s towed target – a long tube fitted with sensitive hydrophones to listen under the water. And a TV crew, filming Warship: Life at Sea for Channel 5, caught the incident on camera, including the crew shouting: “What the hell was that?” The Ministry of Defence has confirmed the circumstances. It’s unclear whether the Russian vessel was damaged but HMS Northumberland returned to port in Scotland for repairs. There has been increased Russian submarine activity in recent years, and Royal Navy frigates regularly patrol the North Atlantic. A UK defence source tells us it’s unlikely the collision was deliberate.

      They play the anthem in Thailand every evening at 6pm. People in parks stand still when it plays. Not because they have to, but because they respect it and they really do love their country. It’s quite strange to see at first because it would never happen in the UK.

      BBC far-lefties like Lineker despise patriotism. It makes people stand up for things on principle instead of just doing what they are told. The jug eared idiot is unable to realise it is people like him who are making us more like North Korea. They would LOVE a totalitarian state – as long as they were in charge of course.

      Then they could solve the problem of their politicial enemies once and for all. The ultimate ‘cancel culture’. Like they have tried to do throughout history.

        When i see stuff like that I wonder if it is at all possible to change the NHS and make it more able to deal what it is paid huge amounts to do?

        I guess the medical mafia will play its ‘ usual emotional blackmail game to keep itself pampered and overpaid – ensuring the closed shop is always short of medics and always building a well remunerated hierarchy and management .

        Any coming inquiry into the Chinese virus will make sure it doesn’t get into a position to criticise either the NHS or the medical mafia living off it …..

          I was in a hospital waiting room the other day, they were running 50 minutes late.

          Two ambulance men came in with a patient in a wheelchair. Apparently the usual procedure was that they wheeled him to the nurse who gave him an injection, then they took him home.

          Rather than being released from that job and leaving the patient to a relief crew they stayed with him thereby keeping an ambulance out of service for 50 minutes and delaying all the other trips on their rosta.

          No wonder there are ambulance ‘shortages’ and NHS ‘backlogs’.

    One is wary of the pedagogic editorial tone here. It smacks of the Guardian house style of telling the faithful exactly what they ought to think on any given subject.

    Whenever there’s trouble in a far off land of which we know little, our thoughts tend to turn to: ‘Munich: The edge of war. It’s a must-see thriller‘ – as promoted in the formerly patriotic Times.

    Having already reminded ourselves of the subject of both old war films and the strain on our public services due to millions of staff sick notes clogging the office in-trays, it seems the Daily Star fears there’s a potential understaffing crisis in the Berlin bunker:

    Unusually there’s no Guardian in the BBC online press frontpage line up this morning. But their website goes with: ‘England Covid testing changes could hit low-paid workers, leaked memo warns.

    Whilst trying to concentrate any attention to the ‘news’ to the more important stuff ( eg the likelihood of war) I got distracted by a story about GBNews .

    Apparently during to colston trial a half wit at GBNews did an opinion piece about the actions of the defendants . The judge summonsed someone from GBNews with the prospect of ‘contempt ‘ charges …
    …….anyway the excuse was that the duty GBNews lawyer missed the opinion piece and it went out . OFCOM will love this one – as does the rest of the enemy Left Wing which will build up any reason to kill unapproved thought . …

    Apparently the defence in that case – the Far Left Doughty Chambers got into trouble with the judge about trying to link case to the wrongs of slavery as opposed to straight forward criminal damage ….
    But they obviously succeeded ….

    Elsewhere – earlier in the week there was a big fuss about the failure of the barking plod in ‘the met’ from detecting the serial queer murderer chapped who dumped the bodies near his home …
    ….. I found it interesting that the individual plods responsible for the negligence were not clearly named . I wondered why – so after 2 minutes of digging I found the list of names on the coroners report …. It was truly … diverse .

    Apparently some of these inept / lazy plod have been promoted …..

    The beauties podcast, Americast, from the BBC advances the case for the arrest and trial of Trump for the violent insurrection of Jan 6th.

    I think this is on the cards.
    The attack on Trump will come from several quarters.
    For example, a speaker interviewed by George Galloway on Twitter predicted that Maxwell will provide evidence of Trump’s sexual indiscretions, bringing him down, and will be rewarded with a pardon from Biden.

      Released On: 07 Jan 2022Available for over a year
      A year after the Capitol riot, the people who were there tell us it’s still dividing America today.

      US Democratic Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett calls it “an attempted coup” and says the country is “in an ideological civil war”.

      Fiona Hill – a former advisor to Donald Trump – says the way many Republicans have responded reminds her of Soviet disinformation campaigns.

      And Gabriel Montalvo, from the New York Young Republican Club, explains most people who went to the rally in Washington that day were peaceful.

      Americast is made by Estelle Doyle and Phil Marzouk. The studio director is Emma Crowe. The assistant editor is Alison Gee ad the editor is Jonathan Aspinwall.

      Having honours taken away (forfeiture)
      Honours can be taken away from people who have done something to damage the honours system’s reputation. Taking an honour away is called ‘forfeiture’.
      https://www.gov.uk/guidance/having-honours-taken-away-forfeiture

      What could cause an honour to be removed?
      Your honour can be withdrawn (or ‘forfeited’) for a variety of reasons. This might include being found guilty of a criminal offence, behaviour which results in censure by a regulatory or a professional body, or any other behaviour that is deemed to bring the honours system into disrepute.

      A decision to forfeit your honour can be based on events that pre-date the award (for example, a past criminal conviction, even if spent), or conduct that occurs after the award is made.
