Sometimes when I question the whole lying shithouse that the UK has become, this site gives me hope that there are still some honest and upright people left in this Country….

A little off target but:
A response to those deranged and stupid “educational” people who have now decided that ginger people are being “oppressed and vilified” by society.
I am a life long ginger bloke and still am into my old age.
I do not want your interference, I have had a fulfilled and very happy and successful life and my hair colour has never ever had a detrimental effect on my life in any way.
It may be an issue for 3-5 year olds who are pretty savage anyway but does not continue into real life.
So get off my case and just get lost, you are doing this for yourself, not for me!
I don’t need your faux anguish and resent your false tinkering!
A last comment: some of the most beautiful people in the World are/were in fact ginger so suck that up!
Digg arrested for Ginger-Supremacism.
“midget” is now a banned word
AFAIK ..200 years ago some people for the word “midge” used to say “midget”
so like we say some things are fly-weight or mosquito, or mammoth for large, people started to say midget for objects that are tiny
eg mifget submarine, MG Midget or a small sports car etc,
Police are searching Twitter for tweets including references to eloquent midgets
Does anyone anywhere, be it Twatter or elsewhere, say “oh f….k off” to all those who find offence in everything ?
I know I’ve been extremely unladylike in my language when younger members of my family have sought to disagree with some of my terminology, and now they don’t even bother to argue anymore ! It needs a total rebellion of older folk to stand up and be assertive to all these pillocks ! The threat of being cancelled by halfwits is just laughable, but sadly big business are scared to death by a faceless minority.
I see GB News is reporting on the collapse of the England batters.
10pm BBC1 news (and 6pm too actually, Clive a Myrie couldn’t say covid case numbers had halved from their peak. He had to start the item with the statement that covid figures were at an all time high in the first week of January. The BBC couldn’t, of course, acknowledge that Boris was right not to lock down.
Interesting, but no surprise, that the BBC are trying to rubbish the Sue Gray investigation into ‘Partygate’…she’s not independent they say, and anyway she’ll probably determine the facts in a way that gives Boris wriggle room…..thus the BBC lays the groundwork just in case there’s no smoking gun and Boris is found not to have breached any rules…the BBC will just announce that the inquiry was an inside job….well, they already have done so.
And interesting that ‘rules are not rules’ here…apparently even if ‘technically’ Boris & Co followed the rules they would still be guilty because they didn’t follow the spirit of the rules…whatever that means.
And apparently No10 is just awash with drink and everybody is just on the booze all the time…dreadful….it wasn’t like that under Labour the BBC tell us…just when the Tories moved in.
Hmmm…somehow doubt that…and er….the BBC itself isn’t averse to having the odd booze up inhouse is it? Well known that the booze flows there….famously of course when Labour won in 97…
And not as if the BBC isn’t also awash in drugs with drug dealing going on inside its premises.
‘Channel 4 is planning to broadcast a documentary detailing the cocaine scandals that have engulfed some of the corporation’s best-known presenters.
The programme, Snorting Coke With The BBC, suggests that cocaine abuse is rife at the BBC and that the corporation fails to take a consistent line when dealing with any high-profile employees who are caught using illegal drugs. ‘
Is Sue Gray any more independent to adjudicate about Downing Street than the BBC complaints department and OFFCOM are independent to adjudicate about BBC bias ?
In a world of bizarre coincidences S__ G___ is doing a second job as the boss in charge of overseeing the recruitment of the new head of Ofcom.
Contexts : there were two leaving dos
Kates Josephs had a leaving do from her job as The GOVT Director of COVID Taskforce
That was 17th December 2020
‘When she told us that she hadn’t been at a Downing Street party, she didn’t actually lie
.. She was at a party thrown in her honour just around the corner’
Restrictions were by area of the country
eg Norwich was not in Tier 3 so you could go to the panto
Manchester too https://twitter.com/jennygayner/status/1339143257801052162
in Cambridge Kate and William went to a panto
– In London Panto had just stopped https://twitter.com/guychapman2/status/1339114518773968897
#2 : James Slack the Prime Minister’s former director of communications
April 17th 2021 leaving do in No 10
.. Story broken by ITV’s Paul Brand whose husband works in 10 Downing St
Today’s Scummedia choose not to mention the crowds that were already drinking outside pubs from April 12th onwards https://twitter.com/BBCNews/status/1381730640903671812
If media fail to show you these obvious contexts
..and instead choose to mislead you into thinking we were all locked up .. then that is #ConstantGaslighting
If Boris Johnson goes , I want him to go because
A) he hasn’t stopped illegal immigration
B) he’s gone mad about Green policies
C) he hasn’t reigned in the BBC .
I’m not bothered about parties.
Unless it’s to sack senior civil serpents .
I’m never happy with anyone RUSHING into anything without a plan.
I never want to get drawn into joining a gang of school bullies.
I’m not rushing into anything, it’s a long term project to get openness and accountability into the governance of our nation .
Plus the only school bullies you see out of school into the adult world are the people employed by the government, and BBC people interviewing people like those that post here , plus their sneering so called comedies.
Yes by school bully gang I did mean those people, of course.
I think that if we are OUTRAGED about something that means someone is playing us, hyping and hiding half the story.
If we are angry and have a plan that is different
we are thinking, instead of mere emotional reaction.
D) Still waiting on ‘getting Brexit done’. NI is part of the UK!
@Taffman is it true that top Welsh scientists have come up with a new anti-virus mask ?
Ha ! Not a.face I recognise. Perhaps she came for a drive from over the border ?
‘Not a face I recognise’ taff?
Grayson will be mortified.
Say what you like about the BBC, they never know when to give up.
‘The revelation that a Chinese spy has been operating with impunity at the heart of the British Establishment for years should surprise nobody.
For over a decade, that same Establishment has been offering Communist China seats at its top tables in government, politics, universities and business.
The aim was to curry favour with a rising superpower in the hope that it would lead to lucrative business contracts and investment.
Nobody should be shocked that the operatives of a totalitarian state took it as an opportunity to interfere, infiltrate, influence and, yes, spy.’
Hmmm…and the Gulf States billions that go towards Islamising the West as they buy power and influence in exactly the same way the Chinese do?
We don’t have 3 million adherents to Chinese communism living amongst us but we do have millions who are Muslim first and who would love to Islamise this country and the West…..as well as willing media, academia and political cooperation and collusion.
Maybe someone should start asking questions abut the baleful influence of the Saudis and the rest…..the BBC were very concerned about the Saudis buying Newcastle FC but turn a blind eye to them buying up universities, royalty and politicians as well as funding mosques and Islamic ‘cultural’ centres which are designed to spread Islam.
Spot on Pug.
Lee was a spy in in uniform
There are plenty undercover
.. probably plenty in Green PR.
The small town I live in has had Chinese, Italians, Jews etc., living amongst us for decades with no problems at all, but I now fear the increase of the Islamic immigrants, because we all know where that leads.
Its too late in the day to do anything meaningful of the Islamisation of the UK and Europe, except pray that Christian evangelicals win Muslim hearts.
Strategically, Russia now holds the strategic key.
It’s your money GreenDreamers are wasting
Here have a tweet which shows the brain power of America’s top Climate Activist
Why do we have to import gas when we have many years of it in this country? Just to keep Princess Nu Nut, Roger Harribin and the BBC happy while we freeze and bankrupt the country and impoverish us peasants.
Let them pay for their “principles”, leave us alone to start fracking.
Their ‘principles’ don’t work anyway.
Gas pipelines and ships leak. The longer the pipeline the bigger the leakage and the leakage from existing pipelines is significant.
There isn’t a lot that can be done about it. There could be undetectable leakage at every joint or the pipe material itself could be porous to a degree – nothing to see in the laboratory but spread out over a thousand miles it all adds up. The shorter the pipeline the better.
It is similar to those long-running ‘water scandal’ stories – ‘Thames Water loses billions of gallons’ etc. – it isn’t gushing out somewhere like the Niagra Falls, it is minor leaks all over the network.
Open up all the closed coal mines that can still offer supply, open up all the coal fired power stations to ensure the National Grid can supply the massive need for Electricity that will continue for years-we need fosil fuels and will do so for many years to come until a reliable new source can be found. One of my family works with one of the major power suppliers distributors and knows full well that the National Grid, irrespective of knowing that going all Electric is not feasible, the NG cannot now and certainly down the line will not be able to cope with the supply demand.
And what is going to happen when we all have electric cars, buses,trains and trucks?
It will never actually happen certainly not in the 50 years-there simply is not sufficient supply available of Electricity to facilitate millions of E/cars/buses/ trucks, let alone keeping the electric supply to our houses et al. Won’t happen, all propaganda to support the Climate Change issue.
Read the WEF agenda. Peasants like us will not own cars. We will call one up, self-driven, for a given journey and it will return to the pool. “You will own nothing and be happy”. Except our betters of course in their Zil lanes.
We have plenty of Coal. New generation coal burning power stations are very efficient and clean. Moreover, the energy source is right here where we need it rather at the other end of the world.
The energy source is not high grade fuel but low grade. The output though is high grade energy that has excellent power regulation, frequency and phase.
Electricity from wind and Solar requires high quality electricity to construct and maintain, while generating low quality electricity.
Coal has the advantage that it returns CO2 to the atmosphere which then increases plant growth. More Green, more food, Carbon dioxide capture by increased plant growth. More vegetables, more flowers, and meat too as a side product.
And we can then start to educate a new generation of engineers. Without engineers and a new industrial base, we are sunk.
If we dont build anything we are proud of, why create a new generation to hand them a legacy.
England will slip into Sharia land with nary a whimper.
What about nuclear.
Its as good for creating good clean electricity as a coal plant. However it requires high grade raw material to construct. High grade in primary energy source. High grade in the building materials, and very high grade in human resources. Its maintenance costs are much higher then a coal plant. Its insurance cost are much higher too. Life span is also low compared to a coal plant. Too, decommissioning a nuclear plant is a problem and expensive.
The UK has 26GW of wind capacity
… What do you reckon the peak output in any half hour period was in the whole of 2021 ?
…. 14GW.. barely more than half the rating on the tin ..at PEAK !
On one amazing day the 26GW of wind averaged 13.7GW …53.6% of its rating
But look on the bright side.
How virtuous do so many politicians feel after sucking up to the Green fanatics for the last 10 years?
Greens who incidentally also oppose Nuclear.
Quite how they expect to keep warm in a Winter anticyclone has never been asked by the BBC. Too busy interviewing people glueing themselves to motorways and train roofs.
Don’t mention this: Coal 3.97%; 1.48Gw.
Where are they getting the coal from these days? Imported from EU, or S. Africa? Think of the carbon miles.
Its time we forgave the NUM and Scargill, and start building coal fired plants right where the coal is.
England and Scotland are lucky as the richest coal seams are in the heart of England and Scotland. Reduced distribution cost. The infrastructure is already there.
Conservative MP Chris Skidmore want to increase the price of everything you pay for
by lobbing on even more Green Taxes
historian .. I don’t know his connection to Green PR
but probably someone in his family.
He get’s £10K a year from Oxford International Education Group for 48-96 hours
His father is a “Cardiff visiting prof”
Bit confused over the terminology here; does that make him blue Labour, red Conservative or Green Tory?
Is he a remainer traitor because that covers all of them . Does he get any Chinese cash ?
The trouble with net zero is that we will end up with net minus. In engineering there is no such thing as a free lunch.
Cold and hungry.
To fall for Greta as the main architect of electricity generation is supreme folly.
Not one mention on the BBC with regards to Starmer and his drinks.
He stated that he was having a drink with colleagues after canvassing in Hartlepool and it was the end of a long day.
The same excuse Boris and the Tories used. So the BBC and most media outlets except Starmers explanation but not Johnsons, although exactly the same.
BBC presenters are even openly laughing at the government while presenting the story, one even said on the radio, ” well if you believe that you believe anything”.
Everytime the the BBC pushes the boundaries of bias a little higher and gets away with it then that sets the bias bar to a new level.
The sad part about all of this is the fact that good news stories with regards to the economy and Pandemic are getting missed.
And is it not sad that now Mr & Mrs Joe Public are starting to fall for all this hysteria from the BBC and media ( latest polls). People really do have short memories. Well, if the BBC and media get there wish and Labour get in then Mr & Mrs Joe Public only have themselves to blame for falling for all this hysteria. You reap what you sow….!!!!
Lest we forget Starmer flitting back and forth between London and Brussels attempting to subvert the referendum result.
As a self-confessed internationalist and still a member (apparently against the byelaws) of the Trilateral Commission who are committed to ‘global governance’, Starmer cares nothing for the ‘national interest’ – a term he spouts regularly.
This suits the bBC Citizens of Nowhere to a tee.
Everything they do, Billy Bunter included, is designed to obtain more recognition and, ‘tick marks’ from those who really count in their private World. The Public / voters? The political elite would say, ‘Couldn’t give a flying f**k’ if they could. The days when they openly say that will arrive soon enough.
… LOL as if they mean anything.
Surely a good opportunity to ask at 11am
The R4 Politics show has a Durham police man on.
Will the presenter Pippa Crerar from the Daily Mirror ask about Starmer’s boozing in Durham during lockdown ?
Maybe on the local Sunday Politics TV show ?
Media auto related incidents…
Bloke tries to jump queue; nudges security guard.
Bloke mows down bunch of folk.
Is this headline the absolute lowest the BBC can go ?.
‘Downing Street party: Minister who lost babies in pandemic criticises Boris Johnson’
We can only hope that the ridiculous and outrageous behaviour of the BBC over this will hasten their demise. They are absolutely desperate : they realise this is the best chance they will get to get rid of Boris – who they hate with a passion.
But not as much as they hate Trump and Farage of course. The hate is directly proportional to how far on the Right you are.
Two things, is it not sad that the only way the left and BBC can make political capital is by sleaze alone
And why is it that the Government just seem to sit back and take all this crap…
I think it is as simple as Mrs nut nut liking the BBC – and living in a bubble where she is not clever enough to realise there is a fire around her which is burning brighter by the day – fed by leaks and the MSM .
Maybe mr nut nut can ask putin to invade and switch attention ….
They must be banking on
party gate to burn itself out –
for the Gray report to be very long and ‘Gray ‘
for not enough Tory MPs to write their letters to the 1922 –
for revelations about labour and liberal party parties
For something more interesting to the MSM to come along…
I think Nut Nut is the main reason Boris should go. Nobody voted for her policies.
But the chance we will get someone who will enforce the policies we did vote for are very small. The election is long forgotten.
Absolutely right JohnC. Carrie Antoinette’s successful campaign to oust Cummings was the catalyst for the current Borisfest, aided and fuelled by drip-fed revelations stored in the BBC and other such outlets for 18 months and more.
She and her very dubious friends have comprehensively stuffed the PM and his government – and the irony is that Dominic is being blamed for all of it. He’s a very convenient fall-guy, but the pug-nosed party girl is the real person of colour in the woodpile.
You’re hopefully not as old as me, Belters, but Lady Forkbender did the same with Wislon in the sixties!
Back then we had just Private Eye, and the BBC usually told the truth as well!
The former isn’t as good, and the latter doesn’t now.
‘Downing Street party: Minister who lost babies in pandemic criticises Boris Johnson’
could also have been:
‘Downing Street party: Minister who lost babies in pandemic says Boris Johnson should not resign’
Because that is indeed what he did say. Another classic BBC ‘lie by inference’.
What a bout the party goings on with the Labour Leader and his cronies during lockdown? Nothing commented on by the BBC in this respect.
The PM may be away with the fairies (the Greco-Roman ones) half the time when he isn’t ‘playing buses’ with Wilf and Dilyn but Cummings is not stupid. Neither are Gisela Stuart or Kate Hoey and that first named did all the heavy lifting in preparation for the start of the Vote Leave campaign – she is the real hero of Brexit but the BBC ignore her – with Bojo coming along at the last minute to be a Brexiteer.
Cummings was not liked from the start by the MSM (esp. the Mirror, Guardian and BBC part of the MSM) and he suffered at their hands all the way through to December 2020 when he quit over Cain’s dismissal by Carrie Antoinette. Cummings is blamed by the Remainer MSM for the winning Leave vote. It is easy to assume that he has now switched sides and is just out for a revenge eviction from No10 but I wouldn’t be surprised if they are some more revelations in the weeks ahead.
Not at all Scrobs, I well remember the lilac notepaper. I suppose the major differences between then and now are the almost quaint Marcia/Mary Wilson/Norma Major parallels, as opposed to the spite and destructive duplicity of today’s Symonds/Cummings confrontations.
The essential point is that it’s all politics, but the role of the BBC is now pivotal while then it was, properly, observational.
Too true, Beltane!
I reckon we were watching Richard Baker and Bob Dougal then, and they had gravitas, a friendly face and were welcome in everyone’s homes.
The current bunch of autocue-readers won’t ever get a look-in in ‘Scrobs Turrets’; they’re a poisonous bunch, because they’re without much talent, and have to comply with the dross fed to them by their ultra-leftie under-managers all the time!
Scrobie, your naming of Lady Forkbender brings the name to mind of another prominent Westminster drunk: George Brown. Another good example of how Al Keyhole has played a prominent part in Westminster and Whitehall.
A column of T14s could be rolling down Whitehall with the entire shadow cabinet waving Russian and Chinese flags, and nothing but Lord Nige with a MOD diversity aware clothing shopping bag to block them, and Newsnight would still be leading with claims Lewis might have heard about an errant canapé.
Maybe in the end it will turn out Boris has a cast iron alibi, and it’s all a plan hatched up by Cummings to draw the media in and then expose the civil service troublemakers.
Now that is a splendid scenario to contemplate, Stew! Excellent!
‘Mandaringate’ – a story of the bloody civil serpents and how they got really thumped!
Certainly things like ‘duty ‘ ‘honour ‘ ‘awareness’ ‘judgement ‘ don’t really inhabit boris world … many pundits throw names at him – such as ‘amoral ‘ and ‘dishonest ‘ but people bought the package …
……….. particularly since there is no opposition MP who is any better ….
Oh, maybe some Lib Dems, Fed…
Er, nope, can’t think of any of them either!
(Don’t actually remember any of their names either)!
Stew, you’ve been at that reading material I recommended. 😉
The Tories have singularly failed to come up with effective responses to the personalised sentimentality that is now such a force.
It is self evident that governance should be for 65 million and not all will benefit all the time. No sensible policy can be invented that does not create drawbacks for someone.
I will be delighted when Donald Trump is back in the WH. That will put paid to the Climate Change RIPOFF for making Marxism look good for a time.
“Migrant crossings: More than 270 people cross the Channel on Thursday”
Hoards are on their way while we are being distracted by one tennis player entering Australia ? We need a new government that will defend our shores with force , not broken promises
This circus we have in parliament has got to go. They are not conservatives.
History Debunked. Another excellent analysis:
He noticed the discrepancy in the numbers not accounted for clearly.
The formerly patriotic Times appears to resignedly acknowledge the coming demographic demise of european civilisation this morning – happily quiescent in the extinction of an ancient people:
‘We’re happy we chose pets over children‘
There’s no Dylan Thomas-like: “Rage, rage against the dying of the light” for this couple: ‘We have dogs, not kids — and that works for us. Author Will Storr, 46, and his wife, Farrah, 43, former editor of Elle magazine, on their lifestyle choice‘
Seems the notion of having children and also the dogs wasn’t an option. Don’t get me wrong, they are nice-looking dogs: ‘… goldendoodle Jones and chocolate labradoodle Parker‘
Even so, this life-style trend-setting couple, held up by the Times for us here as exemplars, are certainly content in due course to: “… go gentle into that good night” – and with them western civilisation?
‘I am “selfish”, according to Pope Francis, and so is my wife, Farrah. A man with a direct line to the Son of God himself has declared that we’re “diminished” and we lack “humanity”. This dire judgment, from a leader celebrated by 1.3 billion Catholics as having infallibility in moral matters, has fallen on us as the result of our raising a labradoodle named Parker and a goldendoodle named Jones in place of children.‘
‘I’ve always been puzzled by the accusation that the child-free are selfish. Like many young couples, when we got together we marvelled at the notion of making a person who was half-her and half-me — a living tribute to our fantastic love. Is depriving the world of this vain fantasy…‘ – and the rest is pay-walled.
Children seem to this reader a natural element of the human condition rather than as they put it – some vain fantasy – but each to their own.
The Guardian puts out an APB: ‘Police appeal for witnesses after woman raped near Peckham Rye station‘ – nasty.
‘The two men were described by police as wearing dark clothing, both wearing gloves and face coverings.‘ – that’ll narrow it down.
The Times meanwhile pulls out a very very tired cliché for their main headline: ‘You are in last chance saloon, PM is warned‘ – no he’s not. Does the Times not read its own news stories – he’s not in any last chance saloon – perish the lockdown rule-breaking thought – he’s at a staff working party where they bring their own booze.
But this is pure soap opera, the froth of current affairs. The real important news lies in long-term trends.
So we return to Will and Farrah – who won’t pull their fingers out and have kids. So who will populate the country in years to come?
Here’s a clue from our BBC: ‘Coastguard set for busy summer in 200th year‘
It’s not what you think…
We’ll have to rephrase that somewhat click-baity brief headline from the BBC which perhaps hinted in directions unintended:
‘Covid: Coastguard set for busy staycation summer on 200th anniversary‘
‘Foreign travel restrictions and Covid uncertainty are reasons why coastguards are preparing for another incident-packed 2022 after their busiest year. Crews attended a record 36,330 rescues last year and, with the potential for Covid travel rules at home and aboard, teams predict more shouts with the UK staycation boom set to rise further.‘
Unmetionable elephant in the room, or as the Coastguard, maritime Boarder Force and RNLI might prefer – whale in the bathtub? Or, to missquote Captain Kirk of Star Trek fame: “Migrant dinghies sighted off the starboard bow“?
‘The record number of 2021 rescues beat the 33,577 shouts in the previous busiest year of 2020 – the first year of Covid restrictions…‘
Gosh, if the koof don’t get us the old briny will. Every news story seems to present a record of some sort these days. BBC news tends to increasingly remind one of Roy Castle’s Recordbreakers.
“But my advice to anyone heading to the coast would be to stay safe, plan ahead, and let people know where you’re planning to be when you go out on the water.” – there’s some sound advice. What a fine public service we have, what with the brave Coasties and our BBC!
Here comes the history bit…
‘HM Coastguard was formed on 15 January, 1822 by the amalgamation of three services – the Revenue Cruisers, the Riding Officers and the Preventive Water Guard – and was set up to prevent smuggling.‘
So, originally it was not primarily about rescue. Bring back the Preventive Water Guard, I say. I’m not so sure about the Revenue Cruisers – but I could certainly envisage that organisation on our modern Pride Day doing their bit raising the rainbow flag in proud salute to their compatriots of the Riding Officers.
Digg’s comment at the start of this thread has got me thinking. Yes it is such a relief that this site shows there are still some people remaining who have not fallen for the brainwashing, but where other sites and things like Twitter get thousands and thousands of likes to every post, no post here ever gets more than 100 likes or so. Are there so few of us left ?
Question to Fed and team, what is the average traffic to this site every day/week. Is it something you can look up or are willing to share ? Are we in a remote backwater or is this site busier than the likes suggest ?
I wonder what the age spread is of our users ? Mainly those who are old enough to remember how Britain used to be and to not have been brainwashed when children perhaps ? Or youngsters too? I hope there are a few, or many, youngsters here. I guess the wider world is simply waiting for those old enough to remember what the country used to be like to die off.
Thanks to all who help keep this site here ! It is nice to have this internet backwater to dwell in !
Being a volunteer moderator – with only limited access to the data – or the inclination to spend time trying to find out – what i am about to say is only an assessment –
1 contributions run at around 150 a day on average
2 the number of posters is ‘small ‘
3 the age range tends toward the more ‘mature ‘
4 the site is largely self policing
5 there is danger of the ‘echo chamber’ effect
6 maybe the likes of stew has more empirical detail
7 I don’t know who ‘owns ‘ it
8 there is no commercial ‘drive ‘
9 it would be a shame if it disappeared
10 I think it is ‘monitored ‘ by enemies
11 I like lists
It may be a ‘backwater’ but I think there is a growing ‘community ‘( woke term ) or sites which monitor or comment on the BBC and dissent is growing quicker than is comfortable for the BBC
Whether that dissent is enough to get change in these years running up to the end of the current Charter 2027? ) I am not sure – and as a pessimist I fear a long long fight …
Fed, thanks for your reply ! Stew too ! Hello to all you lurkers out there however you are !!
Fellow Kent man here, BK!
Not ‘disgusted’ of T.Wells (yet) but close to, by about fifteen miles…
Listen to LBC during the night as Ian Paine is great, Darren Adam pretty good, Steve Allen a real professional hoot, Tom Swarbrick pretty good, Clive Bull excellent, etc etc. Don’t listen during the day – too much to dountil tincture time around midday!
Kent local radio doesn’t do anything for me really, although I did get a ‘guess that drum solo’ prize 25 years ago!
BBC radio kent .. Ugh .. Sometimes if I am in the car I listen to their morning program for the first few minutes just to see if they can get beyond the three top stories without having something woke, leftie or pro immigrant. They never make it !
Sorry you had to listen to them, BK!
Luckily, I’ve lost their website thing on the wireless, so haven’t a clue where they are these days!
you should be aware that Virgin Media block this site by default as they deem it racist. I had to manually adjust the settings to allow the site to be accessible, it was not that easy, you have to log in and remember passwords and know where to go etc.
Isthebbcbiased seems to avoid this blocker.
I don’t know if that is true of other providers but i guess it is, and therefore imagine that the majority of people have no access to this site.
No surprise really as the corporate world tries to outwoke each other – never had any time for that brand – go woke go broke …
Maybe they have a certain ‘type ‘ in their IT department ….
Fed, David Vance started this site off, did he not? Think he ‘technically’ owns it. But you, Rufus McDufus, Stew and RC help to keep it all running. May we soon see fruit for your and our collective efforts, maybe by next Friday? 😉
I’ve never been introduced to the owner – or had comms – which I consider to be bad form . As far as the Peter Bone Bill – I won’t hold my breath and assume it will just be kicked into the ‘long grass ‘…. But I would be interested to see if Doris Dorries shows any interest at all … again I think not …
It’s always the nature of sit es such as this. that the are more lurkers than you’d expect.
Many people don’t have the time to comment, or don’t want to leave a trail back to their work computer etc.
To me long term holding to account and chipping away works. All the other BBC sites like DefundTheBbc on Twitter or YouTube channels,
newspaper below the line feed into each other etc.
On the internet people are so often not who they say they are
eg women posting as men
.. People with multiple accounts
Multiple people posting under 1 account
So we can’t be certain of ages etc.
Look at the influence Newsnight has despite costing around £300,000 per viewer.
Such as here, free, is read, and reaches many, who do appreciate actual facts. And some are significant… facts and readers.
That claim I made… from a source… apparently.
The bbc of course pays market rates but needs not worry about the talent acquired.
State anything means you can only fail upwards.
Or sideways in Hugs case, on more money. Then an eye watering transfer fee.
Springster and bbc hit a slight ‘News’ vs. ‘Not newsworthy’ dilemma?
Can’t say much about the BBC as I am not using it – I’m more at GBNews now …. The radio version is fine …
Anyway I was thinking more about what Lord David Starkey was saying about wokery being the new religion – and how it really is an extension of feminism .
He seems to be right on that – after all wokery is ‘absolute ‘ there can be no dissent . You either ‘believe ‘ or you are a heretic .
Also woke disciples have to demonstrate they are more woke than others – leading to names being changed – statues being destroyed – people being destroyed … if not physically …yet ….
Being a very bad follower of Christ I was looking for parallels … but am not that good on the Gospels to say anything meaningful . I know others here are more knowledgable .
Starkey was of the view that non woke believers need to recognise that we are in the presence of a new Religion which isn’t going to go away ….
……… he didn’t say it – but I think he has realised it since his burning at the woke stake over some ‘aside ‘ he let himself say .
So the time of free speech is gone – along with employment – professional status – twitter and YouTube and the other social media froth ….
Don’t forget – it’s a knew religion – so take that knee …

Mark Steyn’s show last night – with Douglas Murray and David Starkey – good stuff.
Yes – it’s a bit strange watching a talking heads programme like that – the absence of ‘approved ‘ questions – the absence of ‘gotchas ‘ and ‘some say ‘ and ‘we haven’t got much time – now the weather “and the standard lazy tick box BBC approach to Everything – makes me realise even more just how tainted and biased the MSM BBC is .
I notice a big improvement in GBNews – there are more adverts ( which is good ( for tea makers )) – and more ‘upmarket ‘ adverts which seem less DFS than earlier …
I reckon the viewing numbers must be growing … dumb dewsbury? Though …. Too much ham …

“Russia days away from invading Ukraine”
If this happens then the ramifications could be catastrophic not just for the world but for our servicemen and women and this country….
And what are the BBC and media banging on about, f–king drinks and parties, only in this country
Only one mention of this today in the media, in the Independent but only on the inside pages.
Wow..!!! As I’m typing this Sky have just mentioned it…don’t get excited, it was 5th story in headline pecking order.
Sky saying that Russia will attack its own troops to make out it was Ukraine and give them an excuse to invade…
If they invade they will of course blame the Tories and Boris Johnson..
You can see the BBC headlines..” Johnson takes his eye of the problem and allows Russia to invade”
Nothing on BBC yet, there’s a surprise.
I don’t think it will affect our military much – it will just be a pain to have no fuel / power / internet / cash machines … time to buy a clockwork radio, candles , matches , a camping stove , a few bottles of water ….. panic buy …
You may be right regarding our troops but rest assured as an ex soldier in the infantry things behind the scenes will be being planned.
If Russia does decide to invade I can genuinely see things escalating and quickly and possibly out of control, that’s when we need to worry.
I’ve just noticed there is a tiny headline on the BBC webpage….Let’s see how long it takes the BBC to blame this Government
Please call me ‘sir ‘ as I am in ‘armchair general ‘ mode – having inherited some of Andy Windsors ‘ gongs ….
…. It is a sick chess game trying to read the public version of what Putin is up to . .. throwing those resources at the border is pretty loud saber rattling and the idea that he will cause a ‘border incident ‘ continues to float about …..
But apart from a couple of battalions of infantry what could Blighty do even if it wanted to do ?
If it all goes Pete Tong I’d just like a clue of why someone dropped The Big One in the few moments before it all goes dark …
Someone with a fondness for Russia ( USSR) once tried to convince me that Russian hostility was all about having buffers to stop the threat from NATO and that NATO ( USA ) was the real enemy .
I couldn’t figure that one out – Russia is ‘big ‘ even without the USSR but it’s population isn’t ( 100 million ish ) so what gain is there for it to get involved in another war?
Fed, did you see the Jen Psaki news conference clip where she hints that the US has news that Putin will create some ‘false flag’ incidents as a pretext to invade Ukraine? Could be deliberate misinfo, of course.
Up2 – that seems to be the narrative – as the resident armchair field Marshall – I was wondering if the weather features much in that area of potential war – is putin waiting for a spring offensive like in proper wars ? Or will he do the sneaky insurgency gig ?
I saw some military thing which said he neede 200 k forces when he currently only has has that … think the real impact is whether he turns the gas off …
Yes, whether Putin turns the gas nob off completely in a westerly direction. Might concentrate some minds in Berlin ….
If it hasn’t happened already – the cyber attack on Europe preceding the actual invasion might be quite spectacular …
Any bets for the latest party leak in the Sunday papers …
Will the BBC’s witchfinder general, Marrianna Spring, be denouncing the disinformation and black propaganda revealed here?….
Or how about in this video where the BBC is once again spinning a narrative that Europe was really a multicultural haven and Vikings were really a diverse bunch of immigrants and not ‘Norse’ at all….
Hmmm….OK…so ‘British’ is just a job description and the evil ‘British Empire’ was actually a multicultural immigrant enterprise that plagued the world….what’s new there then.
Of course you can spin that around….if ‘British’ or ‘Viking’ is cultural as much as DNA and wrapped up in beliefs, customs and values then those who come here and refuse to adopt the customs and beliefs and values can’t be ‘British’…or ‘Viking’.
They are invading the east coast too.

TOADY Watch #1 – the BBC would be well advised to keep quiet over ‘Partygate’ as they keep revealing things
Just after the sport at 8.25 a.m. and the news bulletin, the BBC’s JustRemainIn Webb interviews the BBC’s Political Correspondent, Nick Eardley, who inadvertently lets slip that ‘Partygate’ is all about Brexit. Ah hah! That is what some of us suspected all along. Whitehall out to get revenge on the Prime Minister and Dominic Cummings for Brexit.
Whitehall would have had Civil Servants at all these ‘boozy parties’ during Lockdown. Is that where some of the leaks to the media have come from? We now know that Martin Reynolds, a Civil Servant sent out 100 e-mails to invite people to a Downing Street reception but only 30 turned up. Could the other 70 have guessed that an invitation to a lockdown rule-breaking reception would have an anti-Brexit purpose behind it?
I wonder ……
Short line in the 4am news
“further refutation of Donal Trump’s claims of election fraud”
“Arizona has dropped 150 charges of election fraud”
Seems that’s just Pima County
Hmm, if one constituency has dropped cases, I wonder if other still have ongoing ones.
“The announcement by the Pima County Attorney’s Office closes the book on more than 2/3 of all the cases of potential voter fraud that were being reviewed by election officials and prosecutors across Arizona. ”
They still have more than 100 outstanding. (from Stew’s link above). Weasel words and distortions, errors of omission, anyone would think it was SCbbc.
Former covid task force head Kate Josephs has ‘apologised’ for holding a leaving drinks
party. And not just anywhere. In the Cabinet Office.
She is now Chief Executive of Labour run Sheffield City Council, on a salary of around £200,000 per annum, rather more than the Prime Minister.
But where are the calls for her to resign?
Where is the campaign?
Why are the BBC not on her back 24/7?
Where is the Toady feature? The interview?
Where is Newshite?
What does the Labour Party have to say about her holding the top position in one of their own councils?
Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
The stink of Leftoid hypocrisy is palpable.
BBCnews did tweet the Starmer page
Yeah. A tweet. Not quite the same as the first 20 minutes of every news bulletin.
If Johnson is going to go down then why the heck does he not go down fighting?
Expose the hypocrisy.
Disown the BBC.
Publicise the achievements.
The job creation.
The avoidance of mass unemployment.
The economy bouncing back.
The GDP growth in November.
Covid under control despite keeping the country largely open.
Share out the responsibility. Blame the partying civil servants.
It’s the supine, craven, prostrate, inaction that is as galling as the ineptitude.
Sluff, I think several things are going on at the same time. Cummings wanting revenge on Princess Nut Nuts for Cain’s departure and his own resignation. Whitehall trying to bring down the PM in revenge for Brexit. They, with the BBC’s help and that of any Lefties in the prints, have picked at various MPs and Ministers, even in the Theresa May days. Priti Patel, Damien Green, et al, for example.
That whole Owen Paterson thing was so obvious and when he unhelpfully instantly applied for the Chiltern Hundreds post, the MSM & Whitehall switched their attack to other Brexiteer MPs which was a bit of a giveaway. Cummings knew all about Whitehall from his short time in No.10. I wonder about him and have my doubts about him just wanting revenge on Carrie Antoinette. I shall ‘keep my powder dry’ but reading some Len Deighton and John le Carre might be helpful for some who are puzzled by Cummings turning on his old boss.
Hi all. Have been reading the site for a few years now, it keeps me sane! Just registered this morning so I can post comments going forward and vent my increasing anger at the unbelievably bias demonstrated by the BBC who I have come to loathe with a passion.
Welcome Mad dog. I don’t post as much as I used to because most of my BBC watching and listening is in blocks of less than 5 minutes before I switch off to preserve wellbeing.
Welcome back mad dog – I too have trouble writing directly about the BBC because I’ve really cut down on it – I grew up on ‘today ‘ but now as a New Year Ressy I’ve abstained – which probably reduces their figures by 1%…
Not sure why welcome back I have not registered before, must be a different mad dog out there
Sadly it’s all too believable. And it’s now totally the norm. It’s why I don’t listen or watch anything to do with news or politics. Not just on the BBC but anywhere, they’re more or less all the same.
TOADY Watch #2 – the BBC’s memory is very short, does Auntie have dementia?
The BBC have expressed just this week past shock and outrage that there is ‘a booze culture in Downing Street’ and ‘a culture of drinking alcohol in Downing Street’. I am surprised not at that but that, with my own defective memory, I am able to recall Alastair Campbell, a Fleet Street journalist (where there is/was very much ‘a booze culture’) who became Tony Blair’s Director of Communications, became an alcoholic and is in recovery.
Then there was that video of Allegra Stratton, another journalist and ex-BBC staffer, that the BBC tried to smear Boris Johnson with (and failed!) where Allegra appears ‘slightly tipsy’ at the rostrum. The BBC have also forgotten that there are an ample number of public houses and wine bars in and around Westminster and Whitehall. The BBC have also forgotten thanks to their dementia that the House of Commons (and the other place?) have bars where alcoholic beverages, subsidised by the taxpayer, may be consumed.
All this ‘faux outrage’ suggests forgetfulness by the BBC to anyone who knows anything about Parliament and Whitehall. One wonders whether TV taxpayers subsidise any bars in Broadcasting House?
The relentless “party” headlines on the BBC are becoming boring and childish. The bias is on open display, time they went!

TOADY Watch #3 – a hearsay claim for Marianna to spring into action on – an MP’s claim, too, she’d like that
I managed to miss the first hour of TOADY this morning. Am I bovvered? No. But it was noticeable that in the full 8 a.m. News, the item near the top, that the BBC nearly led with, was a claim that a Conservative Party MP had received 200 e-mails from ‘enraged constituents’ concerning the PM and ‘Partygate’. It easy for the BBC to claim that and just as easy for a Tory MP, for whatever motive, to claim that. More than one of the ‘enraged constituents’ may have sent more than one e-mail of course.
I expect Marianna to be carefully fact-checking that claim. Or will it disappear down the BBC’s Memory Hole like so many other inconvenient truths?
I wonder ……….
Comrade Barry Gardiner hiding in a Chinese restaurant ? Or the embassy ? Wonder if he was promised ‘PM’ when the chines fix the election result again …
How many enraged emails has the Labour leader so called received for his parties during lockdown?
R4 Any Questions started with a BBC untruth
“Here we are at Handsworth in Birmingham where the population is
one quarter Christian
one quarter Muslim
one quarter Hindu
and one quarter Sikh”
em atheists /agnostics/others ?
It is it not credible that in a country which is majority non-religious that in Handsworth they are zero
“This is an area where people Labour by a sizable majority”
…. ‘Now we have had dozens of questions like this
should there be one more leaving party in Downing St
… Mr Conservative MP you go first’
..hostile audience sounds throughout
I guess they meant “Of the people who express a faith, they are split a quarter each”
But there is good and bad on the likes of the twitter
‘ Keysersosse ‘ commemorates the military dead in afgee – and there is similar with losses in Northern Ireland . It’s a reminder of the price paid by ( men ) because of amoral politicians . I was trying to think of one who had morals – Mrs thatcher was the only one I could think of …
Certainly not major Blair brown Cameron – may doesn’t count –
I really hope the Tory party are deciding on the best replacement for Boris. If Boris can embrace the policies he was elected for (“take back control our boarders, take back control our money, take back control, of our laws”) remember – the Tories can then extend Boris’s stay for him to deliver this sooner rather than later. The replacement needs to be seated in the wings ready for the call nonetheless.
My concern is that princess nut-nut is pulling the strings in Boris’s head and pants and therefore the Tory replacement should be at the ready as it will soon become clear if Boris has not changed his policies to those he sold us.
If we policed our borders we wouldn’t have any five-star boarders to control!

‘Downing Street Parties – How many wine bottles fit in a suitcase.
Kate Josephs, needless to say, rates no mention at all.
It eventually says about 30 , the same about 30 that fit in a dinghy that illegally cross the channel .
You can’t carry 30 bottles of wine in a suitcase
They’d be too heavy
1.2kg each = 36Kg = 80Lbs = 5 stone10lbs
A 3 litre (4 bottle @75 CL) box weighs about 2.8 kilos. Even those cabin suitcases can withstand a load of 30 kg.
The lackeys could be on a continuous trip to the off licence and number 10.

Just caught up with a GBN discussion about the BBC between Peter Bone MP and Jenny Bond ex BBC Royal Correspondent. PB was explains the reason for his bill to abolish the License Fee and Ms Bond was there to defend the corporation.
We all know the reasons why the LF should be abolished so I won’t repeat them. Ms Bond’s defence of the BBC amounted to the usual well worn cliches:
It only costs the price of a cup of coffee per week
It is respected around the world
It produces excellent quality found nowhere else
It is totally impartial
My response to Ms Bond is
I don’t like the coffee served up by the BBC so why should I pay for it
If the rest of the world respect it so much why don’t they pay for it by subscription
The quality of its programmes has been going downhill for at least twenty years but if she thinks it so good then surely people would pay a subscription to watch them, even if it cost two cups of coffee per week
If she thinks it is impartial she must be so biased she can’t see the truth when it is stating her in the face.
There is no credible defence of the BBC and its License Fee.It has become a woke globalist elite propaganda fog horn which has played in a major role in wrecking our once pleasant land, and I loath it.
Double – I watched ms bond and felt my jaw dropping that someone could be so indoctrinated by her former employer –
However – it was ‘nice’ to hear anyone – anyone – trying to justify the BBC – I thought Mr Bone was on his best behaviour because a lot of people could have ripped the BBC pensioner a new one … mr bone just cited QT for its ‘remainer ‘ bias – which was just too easy …
I don’t know about Boris and suitcases full of bottles
but Boris & Carrie have been chugging on crates of Green-Kool-Aid that have cost the taxpayers £billions.
Covid cases 82,000.
The lowest daily rate since 15 th December.
I’d say that is good news.
What’s the betting it will be well down the BBC news agenda. Probably hidden away in the general statistics and if emphasised then qualified with a ‘but’ and ‘warning’ from a carefully selected doom-monger.
5.15 pm update.
On the BBC1 news the covid case rate was reported with no comment at all.
Then the 7 day average ( in steep decline) was not reported at all.
However the death rate and vaccination numbers were reported including the 7 day averages.
So proof positive of the deliberate, wanton, suppression of good news by the insidious, biased BBC.
I reckon you deserve one of Mr A Windsor’s medals for wasting time on a Beeb-watch on a Saturday, Sluffy!
Tincture time in eleven minutes; I’m buying!
Has the bbc investigated.
Plus few other Labour gems.
Watching partygate. Has the BBC decided to remove Boris or simply reminding him who is in charge?
He had a majority of 80 and could have whacked the BBC. But that seems over.
Sorry, that majority is long gone.
