    (Wallace Greenslade) Ahem.

    (Neddy Seagoon) Come on Wal, clear that old throat and speak to the nation. Kindly annince the annuncements.

    (Wallace) Ahem! The Great Cardboard Fakery Part the twooth.

    (Neddy) What, what, what, what?

    (Grytpype) Don’t do that Neddy, dear fellow. Have a gorilla instead.

    (Neddy) No thanks, I have given them up for Lent.

    (Grytpype) But Lent isn’t for another six weeks.

    (Neddy) Really? It must have come early. It gets earlier every year. Just like Christmas.

    (Grytpype) Now Neddy, I need to arrange a sale at Sotheby’s and there are certain expenses. Could you see your way to arranging a small loan of a few shillings. My colleague here, Count Frenchie Aloysius Moriarty will guarantee the loan as he is a lesser scoundrel than myself.

    (Moriarty) Owwwhh!

        Neil Oliver: World leaders think the unvaccinated are next door to idiots, racists and misogynists.


        • NCBBC says:

          I have been suspicious for sometime of the way Western leaders were getting increasingly agitated, almost panicked, that many people were refusing to be vaccinated, and were resorting to ever increasing violent threats.

          So why should this be?

          What I fear is that there is something that the unvaccinated will show publicly once the real nature of the mRNA so-called vaccine becomes known.

          Thus no sizeable group of unvaccinated, serving as a control group can be allowed to exist.


        • NCBBC says:

          And here we have the state removing children from their mother as it feels that it has the moral right to do so.


          The state removing children from their parents can lead to a civil war that will take no prisoners.

          I dont think leaders are evil. But they should be careful. There may not be a turning back.


          • NCBBC says:

            Pause to consider.

            if the unvaccinated come down with covid-19, it will hit them hard. They will be forced to stay at home and isolate.

            The double vaccinated OTH, as we now know, are not immunised, but come down with covid-19. As their symptoms are mild, they continue to mingle with the population, spreading the virus.

            Its the vaccinated that should be isolated and incarcerated.

            And yet its the unvaccinated that are being harried and pursued with threats of violence.


        • tarien says:

          We could do with a fellow like Neil Oliver as PM, maybe not he wouldn’t want the job, don’t blame him.


          • NCBBC says:

            We could do with a person like Joe Rogan

            We’ve been vaccinated, locked down, quarantined and threatened.

            And the end result is that covid spread as if we had done nothing, and the UK has one of the highest covid mortality rates in the world.

            I hope that covid 19 does not have an adverse reaction parting shot in a couple of years.

  2. Sluff says:

    BBC reporting huge absentee rates among public sector workers.
    Could this in any way be related to the fact that no sick notes are now required for up to 28 days off work, in order to reduce GP workload?
    I doubt the BBC will be asking. Too busy idolising elderly black American actors.


    • BRISSLES says:

      My thoughts exactly Sluff ! Easy to have a week or so off now as “I’m isolating”. The NHS workers can only use that excuse for so long.


      • Scroblene says:

        The trouble starts when they really do become ill. Private sector employers are watching staff very closely for any sign of this happening, especially after furlough stopped last year!

        O/T, the Bliar woman took nearly eighty grand from the public purse last year! Why her ‘staff’ couldn’t work from home, nobody understands!

  4. Sluff says:

    Not sure I wrote about the following classic example of the depths of BBC s***-stirring.from last week.

    Trying to undermine government covid policy they ‘found’ (how?) a girl who caught covid so was unable to get a booster for 3 months. Then she caught covid again so now has to wait another 3 months for the booster. Her mother is distraught and was featured on Toady.

    Now irrespective of your views about covid and boosters you have to admit the number of cases as described above out of a population of over 65 million must be vanishingly small.

    Yet the BBC managed to find one.

    What a shame they cannot carry out such in depth investigations of other situations. Such as the abuse of young white girls in northern towns. Much too difficult for them.


    • Scroblene says:

      If BBC ‘journos’ risk getting a foreign baseball bat around the head for doing a story about such abuse, they could always do it from a PC or even a set of Airpods if they can get them one expenses, like Ange did!

      So they chicken out of a real investigation and look for a victim for a safe story, then ask a minister and ‘hey presto’, it’s a gotcha moment again!!


      • Sluff says:

        How DID you manage to get on the BBC journalism training course, Scrobs?
        Para 2 must have earned you a pass with distinction,


        • Scroblene says:

          Oh, it’s pretty easy, Sluffy, just a few drinks with some thick Beeb techy, a bit of banter with the crew, and away we go!

          It’s no big deal really!

          Making up stories is just an hour’s ‘work’, then it’s down the pub again, waving my electronic Filofax!

    Local BBC news : Our local BBC enviro reportertook a break from retweeting BigGreenPR guys to do a GreenPRasNews item.
    “According to new research and the university of Hull
    : Young people are switching to secondhand clothes to save the planet
    .. fast fashion is in decline !”

    .. The item features a Hull Uni prof that local BBC have on regularly to help spread doom.
    Also a market stall which sells vintage fashion at a big price.

    Just stop “a survey said” is worthless
    cos pollsters get whatever results they want by skewing questions

  6. Sluff says:

    The BBC’s capacity to fail to join the dots knows no bounds.

    They are reporting that a Danish navy vessel having caught suspected pirates off the coast of Africa has put three of them into a small dinghy and released them back into the sea.


    So if it’s OK for them to do that , then why does our Border Farce need to offer a free transport service for the thousands of economic chancers and draft dodgers……..errrr…I mean ‘traumatised and vulnerable young refugees’ coming across the Channel in……small dinghies?


    • G says:

      I hear that the ‘Red Wall’ voters will ditch our Socialist/Marxist/Green Government at the first opportunity as their Socialist/Green/DinghyDivers/Brexit shenanigans (proving Boris’ love for the EU) don’t impress. And to relieve the pressure on the ‘Red Wall’ voters what does the Marxist and his cadre do?

      Disproportionately flood the north with Dinghy Divers who can, I understand, be seen aimlessly wandering around Barnsley et al.

      The expression ‘salt in wounds’ comes to mind.


    • G.W.F. says:

      Here is Priti’s opportunity to cut back the flow of dinghy settlers.
      Border Force threaten to strike if she asks them to turn back dinghies.
      Come on Priti. Let them go on strike and not bring the settlers in.
      By going on strike they would be doing their job.



  7. Fedup2 says:

    Someone on the twitter put the following up – which is pretty concise and accurate –

    “So we have
    Police who do not police.
    GPs who do not see patients.
    A Border Force which doesn’t protect our borders.
    A war criminal gets a knighthood.
    Vandals who admit their guilt are found not guilty.“

    Obviously respondents came up with more dysfunctions under a blue Tory badged one party state … ..

    …in the news I’m still surprised that the death of a 94 year old foreigner trumps the death of a 73 year old Comrade Remainer MP with a taste for taxpayer funded expenses – together with his lady wife …..

      It’s all down to the BBC mindset…

      All races are equal
      But some races are more equal than others.

      Just imagine the Beeb’s response if these had been white thugs abusing Muslim teenagers.

      Every news bulletin would lead with this story. We’d be lectured by the great and the good about how appalling we all are. Panorama would have a special investigation into “Islamophobia!. We’d never hear then end of it…

      The BBC are parasitic, propagandist, fifth columnists.

  22. Right Angle says:

    Stephen Glover of the Daily Mail has a lengthy charge list against the BBC, specifically, its Radio 4’s Today programme:


    The charges (excerpts only):

    “… Is it possible that the much trumpeted NHS crisis is not as unprecedentedly dreadful — at least, not yet — as the BBC’s most important current affairs programme would have us believe?”

    “… At least eight Covid independent experts were interviewed on Today last month. Of these only one, Professor Carl Heneghan of Oxford University, could be described as a moderate pragmatist who has argued against further restrictions.”

    “… On Wednesday, just after 6.30am, Mr [Nick] Robinson reported something that was true — and added an opinion of his own: ‘ ‘‘We can ride this Covid wave out without the need for further restrictions on our lives’’, Boris Johnson insisted last night. It is quite a gamble.’
    The second sentence is his own view, and it is not his business as a supposedly impartial Today presenter to state it.”

    “Between Christmas and New Year’s Day, Today is edited by guest editors. On the Monday, this role was filled by Jane Goodall, an animal rights activist and primatologist.
    Not once in three hours was anyone allowed to express the faintest pro-hunting or pro-shooting view, though there was a great deal of anti-hunting material.”

    “On Wednesday a jury in Bristol acquitted four people responsible for toppling a statue of the 17th-century slave trader and philanthropist Edward Colston in June 2020.
    The following morning, Today interviewed the distinguished black historian David Olusoga. He declared that the acquittal, which he enthusiastically supported, was a ‘historic landmark’.”
    Nick Robinson omitted to mention that Olusoga had given evidence for the defence during the trial.
    “But no one was given an opportunity by the Today programme — Mr Olusoga being the sole interviewee — to say that it is wrong to go around toppling statues of long dead people, whatever some may think of them.
    Yet another example of Today ignoring one side of an argument because it doesn’t approve of it.”

    “… On Tuesday, the BBC’s Climate Editor, Justin Rowlatt, discussed river pollution with Feargal Sharkey, former punk singer and lifelong fly fisherman, who asserted that ‘the biggest polluter in this country is agriculture’.
    All this is more evidence of coverage that is neither balanced nor fair.”

    Glover’s conclusion:
    “… They [most of Today’s presenters] peer out at the world from their metropolitan bubble in Broadcasting House in Central London, basking in similar liberal-Left views. Boris Johnson is always bad, and anything that can be done to undermine him is good. Brexit was appalling.”

    Sadly, as the BBC has shown itself quite unresponsive, and indeed indifferent, to feedback and complaints, it looks like Stephen Glover will have more to chronicle as the year progresses.


    • brexiteerkent says:

      An excellent article. Thanks for pointing it out.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Right angle – thanks – the full article is worth a read – it is free online . There were over 700 comments and you can guess their flavour .
      Although my uptake of anything BBC is reducing it can still be fun to spot the journalistic propaganda phrase – such as

      ‘The government is defending its’ decision to….”
      ‘The PM was forced to defend ….blah ….’
      ‘Some say ‘( never who exactly )
      Which to me implies that whatever is ‘defended ‘ is wrong ….

      Even when the BBC reports something which it considers ‘bad’ and then at the end throws in a required comment to ‘balance’ the piece that ‘balance ‘ sounds more and more like a tick box to keep the friends at OFCOM happy …

      But please don’t get me wrong – I am not a supporter of the current mad lefty regime . I would prefer a right wing conservative government which is not frightened to making really ‘difficult choices ‘’….


      • Scroblene says:

        Oh yes Fed, the BBC are very fond of the word ‘Insisted’, meaning that they think they’ve scored on a ‘gotcha’ question.

        Normal citizens usually ignore the sort of language they use, as they know it’s a false narrative.

        When you really analyse the performance of BBC journos, and a few more no doubt, they really aren’t very good at getting a proper answer, as their bloated self-opinion always shows through!

        ‘One mouth-two ears’ doesn’t actually figure in the BBC manual of how to get a proper answer, but I suppose they get the answer they’ve been angling for, usually negative, which is why they really don’t do much for any article!


        • Fedup2 says:

          There is also

          ‘The BBC has learned ….”

          Line which normally leads to a bit of lefty approved thought …


          • Scroblene says:

            John Humphris was expert at letting politicians ramble on about whetever they wanted to say, then pop in a ‘Yes, but…etc etc’, and the politician had to respond properly, otherwise the attack dog got up on his hind legs!

            But at least he gave them a chance!

    Blacks get murdered in London almost daily .. Local news … one gets killed on the other side of the world and it is the top news item on the main BBC news website. The fact it is on the other side of the world is not mentioned until half way down the page, at first I thought it was in the UK.


    What’s the difference ? Aha of course, black lives only matter in the rare cases that they are not killed by another black.

    Doctor and nurses moaning they had to work through Xmas, ”boo bloody hoo”, 9 years in the army and I got home for Xmas twice

    There must be a pre requisite on there Curriculum vitae that states they are capable at moaning at anything and everything..!!!

    You can imagine there interview for an NHS job, interviewer – how are your moaning skills, interviewee – outstanding I will do you proud and by the way, I hate the Tories and I’m a devout leftie, oh yes, I also love the BBC..Interviewer – great, when can you start…

      The BBC on call shortlist is bizarre.

      I early on experienced on call, shifts, etc. Loathed them. Slave to the job. Vowed I never would. So did not. Admire all who do, and power through. Often poorly remunerated. Our kids got time and a half working over Xmas at a Covid clinic.

      This goes back to taking on jobs knowing you can’t do them properly and then blaming everyone and everything else.

      See Rob Burley on 20,000 staff and £5,000,000,000 not being enough now to prevent bbc staff screwing up because they are hired for reasons anything other than professional ability.

      I would love to see an FOI answered in detail on who gets on the BBC.. audio, video, studio… and how.

      The BBC finds them… knows them… has them on file? They know the BBC, or their PR does….?

      But it would not be answered. Because the BBC is unique and exempt.

    Guess who’s coming to dinner edition

    The Times today lays out for us: ‘The nine foods you should be eating‘ and the Guardian has booked a top chef with: ‘Ottolenghi’s five-ingredient recipes‘ – so let’s all have a nice dinner party…

    Our guests are arriving – at least those that haven’t gone off on a: ‘VACCation stampede. Double-jabbed Brits in rush to book summer hols‘ (Daily Mirror) – do be sure to check rules that might apply at your holiday destination. All travel T&Cs are extremely changeable at very short notice.

    The Blairs, Sir Tony and Lady Cherie, are perennial attendees: ‘Millionaire Blairs got £76,000 for furlough handouts‘ (Daily Mail) – ‘1 million urge Queen: Ditch Blair’s gong‘ (Daily Star) – ah, To Sir, With Love.

    One hadn’t heard these two were together: ‘Judi Dench & Kenneth Brannagh. On their new film “Belfast”‘ (FT) – just work colleagues, you know how it is with these luvvies.

    This party is looking a little too undiverse…

    Ah, what a relief, she’ll fit in nicely, we’re so pleased to welcome: ‘Charlene White. Black middle class life(‘i’) – are you on your own, dear? We’ll pair you up with someone.

    Let’s see, have we a spare man? Here’s: ‘Gemma Chan. My old man and the sea‘ (Guardian)

    Some women do go for the older chap: ‘Ghislaine witness’s bombshell for Andrew‘ (Daily Mail) – but let’s not go there. This one is a bit too long in the tooth for you, luv. He’s a Tory and it’s so long since he was in circulation. Although I hear he would have been pro-EU – which is a big plus: ‘Neville Chamberlaine. Is it time to admit we got him wrong‘ (Telegraph)

    Of course Brexit is the reason we didn’t invite that horrible baldie boffin chap to our soiree – although we do enjoy some of what he has to say these days: ‘Cummings makes new No10 party allegation‘ (Guardian)

    Obviously there are no Tories here to spoil the party: ‘Camilla Tominey. Tories are party skivers not strivers‘ (Telegraph)

    Poor Louise, she’s so feisty, but her hubby… bit of a soy boy, as they say. Sounds like he’s such a scaredy cat: ‘Louise Minchin has told how threats sent by her stalker were so graphic that she did not allow her husband to read them‘ (Telegraph) – Call Me Mister Tibbles

    ffs, they are still flogging that horse.

    I find it slightly amusing and enormously pathetic how the BBC only ever report certain things or people on their ‘cancelled’ list when what they have to say suits their agenda. Cummins is public enemy No.1 when it suits.

    GB news is another one they have cancelled. The only recent report I can recall is when they gleefully interviewed their grey-faced stooge took the knee.

    What disgusts me most is the BBC’s extreme hypocrisy. They are even more nasty and dirty as anyone they criticise.


  30. Sluff says:

    On the BBC webshite we have an article about the lack of public spending on the NHS. Yes, really.


    They then go on to compare the UK ( unfavourably of course) with other countries.

    But what they again fail to mention is that in other countries people have to spend some of their own money on their own healthcare. It is not the socialist nirvana of the nationalised health service but a plurality of provision. Local clinics in Germany paid for with insurance. Private sector ambulances in France, where if I remember correctly prescription drugs have to be paid for by the recipient.

    The reason other countries spend more on healthcare is that their populations have not been browbeaten for 75 years to believe it is somehow unethical and immoral to spend some of your own money on your own health………..and so they do.

    An inconvenient truth for the BBC.

    Come on – the democrats have to big that up in order to distract from the stolen election …… I wonder how many ‘federal staff’ were involved in it …..


  37. Doublethinker says:

    There is a brilliant analytical piece by Joel Kotkin in the Spectator ( behind the pay wall I’m afraid) this week in which he outlines why in his view democracy is under severe threat from the oligarchs and their paid lap dogs in the swamp , MSM etc whom he terms the clerisy.
    He foresees that most of us will be reduced to surviving on low paid jobs and government hand outs , provided of course we toe the line and do as we are told by the clerisy , who are the enforcers of the oligarchs will and get well paid for it.
    He thinks that we are close to entering the post democratic age . I think we are already living in it.
    The gross exaggeration of the Capitol incident is just part of the softening up process to make the masses accept why the oligarchs and their lap dogs close down democracy. Basically we don’t deserve the right to vote!

      Double – if I recall from my reading of the original beveridge report there was meant to be a ‘deal ‘ between the state and the citizen over the receipt of welfare –

      – basically that if you don’t’ behave ‘ as a citizen don’t expect to get state benefit. Obviously this bit got dumped but I could see some rabid lefty resurrecting it to punish unapproved thought….


      • Doublethinker says:

        I think that the terms left and right are rapidly losing their power to describe the politics of the 21st century. The oligarchs and their well paid lap dogs are wealthy and woke but we tend to still think of them as leftist. We ordinary folks , basically everyone who isn’t an oligarch or a clerisy lap dog, are much poorer and will become relatively much poorer yet but can have views that in the 20th century could be characterised as right , centre or left.
        It’s the globalist and their enforcers versus the rest of us. But as the saying goes we are many they are few. Perhaps the plan is divide and rule us via critical race theory, mass migration , multiculturalism. If so it’s a high risk strategy for everyone!

    New study of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine has some disturbing findings
    By Bill Hansmann

    The efficacy of the Pfizer vaccine was conducted by Pfizer on healthy young adults. Not exactly a fair trial. The result showed an efficacy of 0.84% more then the unvaccinated. Hardly worth the bother. We could have saved the economy and the nation. The real cost of is yet to come.

    I believe the reason, both here and in the USA, is to shame or force the unvaccinated, so to reduce or eliminate the only control group that remains – and thus show the illegitimate behaviour of governments.

    Moreover, if the unvaccinated come down with covid-19, they self isolate. The double vaccinated OTH, as we now know, are not immunised, but come down with covid-19. As the symptoms are mild, they continue to mingle with the population , spreading the virus.

    Its the vaccinated that should be isolated and incarcerated.

    Thankfully, the omicron came about, a natural vaccine that will generate a whole body wide spectrum natural immune response of the body. But the long term consequence of the mRNA concoction is anyone’s guess.


    • Thatcherrevolutionary says:

      I wouldn’t say ‘anyone’s guess’

      Try Dr Robert Malone or Kary Mullis.

      They know a thing or two about these ‘vaccines’. Probably a bit more than Sajid Javid or Kier Starmer.

      They are very clear what these mRNA technologies have done to people’s immune systems.


      • NCBBC says:


        Thanks for reminding. But both are now persona non- existence as far as Big Tech is concerned.

        If Big Tech were around in the 16th century, the modern age would have been delayed.

        There are others too, such as Prof Bhakdi of the Max Planck institute. But what the hell do they know.


        • Up2snuff says:

          Kary Mullis is, iirc, dead. He developed the PCR test to deal with HIV/AIDS virus (humano-immuno-virus) and won the Nobel Prize with co-creator Michael Smith. Again, iirc, before he died Mullis cast doubt as to whether the PCR test could be used to detect other viruses.

          Mullis really died three years too soon. Would have been handy to have around right now.

    TOADY Watch #1 – sort of gave me a bit of a chuckle but …

    The BBC are really having to sort out their rotated and strangulating undergarments over devolution. Boris appears to have been proved right over Plan B so they are attacking him instead on the Cummings declaration yesterday and headlining the fact that Sue Grey, tasked with the investigation into Downing Street ‘gatherings’, will now look at a wider picture.

    But out in the devolved Parliaments, the BBC’s poster-girl for Lockdowns 1, 2 & 3, Nicola Sturgeon, is losing her gloss. Cases are rising north of the English border. Meanwhile Chester FC is suffering from Mark Drakeford’s damaging restrictions. Oh dear! Maybe we need to go back to one Government for the whole of the UK?

    The BBC carefully avoid that large pachiderm crowding the presenters out of the studio.

      I grew up in the Anglican church. My daughters went to Sunday school, and grew up in Brownies and others such. But now that church is unrecognisable. The buildings are still there, but traditional vicars are lost. They dont recognise the present leadership in Canterbury or York.

      This is the Church of England, that should have protected us from evil ideologies that are destroying this nation.

      John Sentamu is likely to be the last Archbishop who stood for those traditional Anglican values.


      • Fedup2 says:

        NC – being RC – I only say what I find – not long ago I was passing the local very old CofE church ( lovely old thing ) …. The door was open … I went in to pray for 5 minutes – I was then accosted by a ‘vicar’ asking what I was doing ( I was on my knees ) …. I said I was having a quick pray . She said the church was closed and I had to leave …..


    • Up2snuff says:

      tomo, I seem to recall there was a very large, brilliant, much-loved (by all races and all skin colours) American woman of African origin who was a famous opera singer. Cannot think of her name. Cannot remember the context but she was asked (on a chat show?) about her weight and size as she aged and her reply with a smile was: “These days I find I have to go through doors sideways.”

      Was it Jessye Norman?


    • Fedup2 says:

        Fed, once they have done with the Guest Editors and their agendas at New Year time I’m willing to listen. If possible I like to catch Tweet of the Day (birds – not beeboids) and then listen from 6 a.m. to 6.10 a.m. after ‘the first look at the papers’. Then I can switch off and get up. 🙂


        • Fedup2 says:

          I just can’t abide any presenter – at least Humphrey’s had been about a bit – I think I remember him reporting the Vietnam civil war ( with added yanks ) but now I have no regard for any of them and I find each approach embarrassing ….
          Btw – did you figure out about the status of jury verdicts which I don’t regard as ‘case law ‘?…
          … I was thinking about the motivation of those who pull down statues or rename places . I guess it’s a bit Stalinist to expunge those who are no longer ‘approved ‘.
          It’s dangerous when history is either denied or expunged for current reasons whether it be good or bad . The colsten name was probably unknown generally until the statue has destroyed . Now it is ‘in / famous’ ..

          British history – both good and bad and questionable must be taught to the young . It is part of the national fabric – but I suppose the ‘globalists ‘ who rather just ignore or distort the past to support their own view – which is something I consider evil .


          • JimS says:

            I sat in the public gallery in a Crown Court once and was surprised how quickly things could be done.

            The accused was identified, the charge read out and a plea of ‘guilty’ recorded. The judge said that he had already read the evidence pack so there was no need for the prosecution to make their case.

            The prosecution said why the accused should be treated harshly, citing some point of law. The defence pleaded some mitigating factors. The judge summed up, saying that the prosecution was pushing their legal argument too far. He declared the accused guilty and passed sentence of seven years in prison.

            I would have though that ‘death by dangerous driving’ might have needed more consideration that vandalising statues but we live in ‘woke’ times when ‘feelings’ trump lives.

        BTW : Tucker Carlson’s father Dick Carlson was a journalist
        then in1986, President Reagan appointed him
        and he became director of Voice of America for six years.
        In June 1991, Carlson left Voice of America after President George H. W. Bush nominated him to be the U.S. ambassador to the Seychelles.
        In 1992 he became the CEO of of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting the umbrella under which NPR sits.
        Republicans started moves to privatise, but Dick disagreed.
        In 1997-99 president and CEO of King World Public Television

        Seems like he’s been an insider on Republican foreign policy for years ..still alive.

      Makes me wonder if something is wrong with Brillo – some of his comments on twitter about GBNews have been spiteful going to vitriolic . Maybe he is a character who cannot stand having decisions go against him …. or he tweets under the influence or something …


      • Doublethinker says:

        It must be humiliating for him to see GBN flourishing with its wide church approach and willingness to explore those issues which are of great concern to the ordinary folks of this country but which the BBC and Brillo won’t touch with a barge pole.
        He was gifted a great opportunity but refused to take it. He isn’t missed as Brazier, Wootton, Oliver , Farage , Stein et al have more than filled the gap. In my view GBN gets better and better.


        • Fedup2 says:

          Double – yes – Brazier is easily more than a replacement for Brillo and doesn’t have the ever expanding distasteful ego that Brillo has .

          The thought pieces are also quite unusual in current news output which mainly consists of 24/7 favoured ‘experts ‘/ talking heads / BBC droids talking to each other ….and agreeing …yawn …

    Dumbed down sports reporting.
    On Toady this morning the day’s play in The Ashes is reported by a female reporter to a female presenter.

    We hear of some injury doubts, a good innings from an Australian, and a few other things.

    Unfortunately they forgot to tell us the score !!!!!
    What was England’s first innings?
    What did Australia make in the second innings?
    Still, I suppose details like that are unimportant when the girls can have a nice chat.
    All in the name of equality, no doubt.


  46. Sluff says:

    If I recall correctly, the BBC on Toady cited overwork and stress as the reason 27000 doctors and nurses resigned from the NHS last year.
    Clearly the agenda is NHS Tory underfunding.

    So just a couple of thoughts that somehow escaped the laughably described ‘journalists’.

    1. The NHS employs over 1 million people. Is a leaving rate of 2.7% that bad?
    2. Where did they go to work afterwards?
    Did they retrain as sparkles? Shop workers? Call centre workers? IT specialists (from the NHS? I think not)?

    Or maybe they can afford to retire early on their final salary pension schemes.

    But answers from the BBC there are none.


    • StewGreen says:

      NHS staff leaving ..there may be a few leaving, cos they’ve had Covid and don’t want to get jabbed
      but new rules will mean non-fully jabbed staff will get fired .
      ie they are jumping before they are pushed.


  47. Fedup2 says:

    The secretive medical mafia will know the answers to these questions – personally I reckon the good medics go full private or for other organisations / countries which offer better pay and conditions and the rest stay in the NHS / or agency …. Or become labour MPs

    I once tried to get a locum to visit at 0600 – he didn’t speak English ( or chose not to ) – I think he preferred Ebo ….

      Outragious fearmongering-150K deaths from the unreliable Covid unsupported figures-how many die from Flu/Influenza each year, I believe the figure is around 125,000, per year. How many people have died as a result of having had an innoculation from this poorly tested substance? That would be a better question to ask and to know, but the truth will be hidden. Government should realise that the public in the main are well aware of the evil propaganda shoved out by their mouthpiece the BBC over the Coronavirus issue-We know from medical reports up and down the internet that this so called vaccine will not stop one getting Covid nor will it stop transmission of same, so why do we bother? Of course again its all part of a world wide plan to build total compliance, and eventual subjugation to all the evil ones they want from us.
