    11:30am prog Black presenter talking to black guest on the topic of a black dancer
    Lots of complaining about Europeans .

    “Oti Mabuse sits down with one of the most recognisable faces of modern ballet – Misty Copeland, the first African American female Principal Dancer at the American Ballet Theatre company.
    She reflects on her inspiration, Raven Wilkinson, who danced fifty years before her during the time of the civil rights movement in America.
    experts : Dr Nya McCarthy Brown
    teacher Reena Bhattacharjee”

    Of Mabuse’s series of 4 heroes ..only 1 Fred Astaire is white.

    The next show also has a lot of complaining about Europeans
    12pm book reading : Muslim Merchants in Tanzania complaining about Europeans trying to enforce justice

    “European dogs” was a phrase used by the main character.

    Novel by UK Zanzibar-born writer Abdulrazak Gurnah
    Gurnah was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature for his “uncompromising and compassionate penetration of the effects of colonialism and the fate of the refugee in the gulf between cultures and continents.”
    Yusuf, a boy born in the fictional town of Kawa in Tanzania at the turn of the 20th century. Yusuf’s father is a hotelier and is in debt to a rich and powerful Arab merchant named Aziz.
    Early in the story, Yusuf is pawned in exchange for his father’s debt to Aziz and must work as an unpaid servant for the merchant.
    Yusuf joins Aziz’s caravan as they travel into parts of Central Africa and the Congo Basin

    The story is a poetic and powerful portrait set against the backdrop of an Africa increasingly corrupted by colonialism and violence.

    So Aziz enslaves Yusuf ..and the Europeans are supposed to be the baddies ?
    That what it sounded like from my brief listen.

      Nigeria didn’t want the UK’s help when trying to save innocent girls from Islam. Why would Nigeria want to trade and have free money from Theresa May (on her Africa Tour aug 2018) via the UK citizens?

      . . . .

      Nigeria rejected British offer to rescue seized Chibok schoolgirls {theguardian.com – mar2017}


      In a mission named Operation Turus, the RAF (UK Airforce) conducted air reconnaissance over northern Nigeria for several months, following the kidnapping of 276 girls from the town of Chibok in April 2014 (by Islamist militant group Boko Haram). “The girls were located in the first few weeks of the RAF mission,” a source involved in Operation Turus told the Observer. “We (UK RAF) offered to rescue them, but the Nigerian government declined.”

      #bringbackourgirls – makes you wonder who Michelle Obama was asking to do this? The wife of the most powerful man in the World, with a special relationship with the Country who could have taken action, reduced to holding a piece of card for the World to read a #hashtag that did NOT bring the girls back.

      Go through to the 19th minute
      In 1997 in Blackburn a female then Conservative council candidate is getting a hard time on the street cos the whole situation is Muslim and people keep denouncing her.
      ‘Whaddya mean I’m anti-Islam my husband is a Muslim
      ..ah I have a plan’

      She gets in her loudspeaker car and drives down the streets
      “Jack Straw is a Jew, so don’t vote Labour !”

        “How is a Muslim going to vote for someone who is Jewish?”


        The former home secretary Jack Straw has admitted that dropping immigration restrictions on eastern European migrants was a “spectacular mistake” on Labour’s part.

        As far as Blackburn is concerned I think we have seen nothing yet! I predict that once the Muslim community tops 50% which is inevitable now, they will force in Pakistani style social engineering using the usual Pakistani methods of forcing out “unwanted” citizens using their own “justice system” which is becoming the norm in Pakistan.

        This will be a massive success for them as the craven local councillors will do nothing to fight it to avoid being seen as racists.

        For reference just read the stories of atrocities against the “unwanted” coming out of Pakistan.

    So the bottler has decided to drop masks WFH and all plans for vaccine passports, probably to fend off the coming scandal about the incredibly low numbers of covid deaths.

    According to the ONS deaths from Covid as opposed to with Covid for the under 65s for a whole year was fewer than 1550 which is a ridiculously low number to have locked an entire country down over.

    Questions are going to have to asked as to the advice which ministers were given over this ‘pandemic’, and whether that advice was in good faith.

      I agree that we need and deserve a none-political, none medical National Inquiry into the whole Covid show.

    Looks like despite the attempted lynching of Boris by the BBC, it’s all going pear shaped for them.

    It needs 54 Tory MP’s to object to force a vote and got 10, all newly elected during Boris’s victory surge in the North. So I expect they will be toast now! They couldn’t have been Labour plants all along could they?


    Also the defecting turncoat has form and is not exactly a reliable barometer being less than forthcoming after he was elected in that he was hanging on to his local authority positions and payouts while being paid as an MP which is not allowed. I don’t think Boris will miss this chap and he will probably be back selling telephone minutes in due course.

        • Fedup2 says:

          Maybe thought of creating a parliamentary moment went to his head . Davis has always tended to be cautious in approach but to call such a thing before the report is published is just him reacting to the MSM .

          The Party thing is bad – but in the scheme of things it should not be enough to bring down a PM / Government – the overall blame lies with the Chinese .

          The MSM rollout tragic cases in order to nail nut nut is just disgusting , again – the fault lies with the Chinese .
          I suffered personally from care home rules but that doesn’t make me blame nut nut .

          Also – I have worked in a high stress high importance workplace where there is little separation between home and work – they can become merged for days .

          So I get the number 10 thing – but do not excuse it . I’m surprised that there hasn’t been more leakage of those who attended .as for Cummings – vile …and fatally flawed – comes around goes around .


          • Up2snuff says:

            I had hoped Cummings was double agent at Bojo’s request to bring down Part-time, the BBC, the D.Mirror, the Guardian and the Labour Party all in one go. But it seems like all he wants is to shift Princess Nut Nuts out of No.10.


  11. Thoughtful says:

    On the previous thread I posted a piece questioning how long it would be before the Blue Labour party backtracked on the licence fee freeze and ending, and StewGreen told me it was “an unevidenced conspiracy theory”.

    Sadly like so many conspiracy theories, this one has ended up being the truth as the Tories cowardly incompetent and useless have taken just a few days to throw in the towel if and when Boris is forced out.


    And there are quite a few others lining up anxious to show their Marxist liberal leftist credentials.

    Oh well. At least has a nice pension. as does Bill.

    And cheer up, the Enders is not nigh..

    Freezing the price of the licence fee for two years (which will then rise in line with inflation for the following four years) will leave the BBC with a hole to fill: the broadcaster has said that by fiscal 2027 the annual deficit will be c.£285 million

    Despite an increased borrowing limit of £750 million, commercial returns will be insufficient to plug the gaps
    With 148 regulatory quotas and targets to meet as part of its operating licence, it is likely that the BBC will topslice content and services expenditure, rather than axing content and services wholesale

  16. pugnazious says:

    Cummings seems to have been reborn…once the arch villain who stole Brexit with lies, data theft and manipulation he’s now the goto man whose every word the BBC et al hang off.

    Only last July Kuenssberg [Cumming’s favourite journalist] told us this about him…

    ‘Given his own reputation for provocation and playing with reality as a campaigner, it’s not unreasonable to wonder if he can be believed now.

    And this….

    ‘Within days of the Conservatives winning the 2019 general election, Mr Cummings says, he began talking to his allies within Downing Street about ousting Boris Johnson.

    “We were already saying, ‘By the summer either we’ll all have gone from here, or we’ll be in the process of trying to get rid of him and get someone else in as prime minister,'” he adds.’

    So a man whom the BBC previously thought was the devil incarnate, a serial and compulsive liar, someone who manipulated the result of the Brexit referendum using the dark arts and who has always been intent on stabbing Boris in the back, is now a respectable, credible and authoritative voice that must be listened to with reverence?

    Kuenssberg has been groomed by Cummings…he all along knowing he would need the trust and credibility the BBC would give his words when the time came to finally betray Boris…and of course he knew the BBC would be more than willing to suspend disbelief and help him with his dirty little job.

      BBC Radio 4, Monday 13 December

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

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

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

    Isn’t it a bit odd when the US (and the BBC etc.,) always uses the term, ‘The Biden Administration’, but when Donald Trump was President, it was always his personal fault if anything went awry!

    It seems pretty clear to most normal citizens outside the US, that Biden and Harris are a total disaster, and that the teeming hordes of the equivalent of British civil serpents in The Capitol, are running the whole show!

    I was chatting online with someone in Georgia, and I really could not believe the naivete of some of the statements coming out – it was utterly pathetic to even read the glassy-eyed, puppy-faced adoration of the stupid pair in the WH!

    The BBC do this all the time to Conservatives, making Bozza the ‘goto’ man to blame and especially people like Nigel Farage, but when Surckeer says anything, he appears to have a whole team of ‘skilled/artisan mandarins’ behind him all the time!

      Chaos as police stop Hungary migrant train – Gavin Hewitt – BBC -Sep 2015 @53s
      “… the a really distressing incident happened. A women who was carrying a small baby began crying for help (photo of lady carrying baby). One of her companions tried to help her (photo of man with women on track, riot police reaching towards them) Somehow there became a push and a shove with the police. She ended up on the railway lines (by the male refugee dragging her and the baby to the floor, but this is not said) with the riot police trying to pull her back, and this of course inflamed all the other people…”
      -Gavin Hewitt – Sep 2015

      Watch the video and the male refugee (companion trying to help?) drags the women and baby to the floor, by force.

      Even the Mirror (03Sept2015) says “… this refugee couple cradle their tiny baby, after throwing themselves (NO! Male refugee drags women and baby onto train tracks) on train tracks as police try to take them to migrant camps in Hungary”

      Gets better. Two days (05Sept2015) later the Mirror then report it as
      “Refugee who dragged pregnant wife and baby son onto train track did it because ‘death would be better’”

      1. BBC Version uses words and pictures to hide the video version
      2. The Mirror shows the video but uses words to tell a different version

      Can I suggest a little story – “Male refugee forces pregnant women refugee holding child down onto a train track, police drag him away for her safety? Riot police then lift women with child off track with tender arms.”

    .. just so they can avoid saying it’s actually the lefty Anarchist Cookbook, which used to be widely available at alternative bookshops

    Today the BBC repeated that style in their quick report, whereas ITV just did this online report.

    The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) referred his sentence to the Court of Appeal under the unduly lenient sentencing scheme
    , three senior judges quashed his original sentence and replaced it with a sentence of two years in prison and a third year on licence.

    The court heard John had been “liking” Nazi-themed content “just five days after promising the judge he had put it behind him”, Solicitor General Alex Chalk QC said.

    Mr Chalk argued that, while the sentence was intended to allow for “potent control” over John’s rehabilitation, this idea in the circumstances was “manifestly false”.

      The gender disparity report was undertaken by the BBC following a recommendation from the government-commissioned review into Licence Fee enforcement by David Perry Q.C. (published 2015). The review recommended the BBC and the DCMS explore ways to investigate and consider the gender disparity in TV Licence prosecutions. The review found that there was a disparity in the proportion of men and women being prosecuted for licence fee evasion but further found that “There is no evidence of any discriminatory enforcement practices on the part of TV Licensing”

      “This maddening is far, far bigger than the BBC. It has gripped the entirety of the creative sector across the Western world. Publishing, for example, is a madhouse of sensitivity readers and ideological purity spirals. Technology has hastened this; it may now no longer be physically possible for a country to share a 20th-century-style mass culture. That has huge implications that we are only now just beginning to grasp.”

      Gareth Roberts is a screenwriter and novelist, best known for his work on Doctor Who.

    Didn’t she and Bo Jo promise to send all illegal immigrants back?
    Not reporting the new arrivals is a good way of hiding the publicity the Tory fiasco is fast becoming. Both Priti and Bo Jo Need to go!

    Fines to crack down on ‘Mickey Mouse’ university degrees: Colleges could be hit with penalties of up to £500,000 for courses failing to deliver jobs

    Unconventional courses that could fall victim to the new rules could include the University of Sunderland’s BA in Fashion Journalism, where students learn ‘essential’ skills such as catwalk reporting and the history of Chanel.

    At University College Birmingham, BSC Bakery and Patisserie Technology students – who learn how to ‘make artisan bread’

    OfS found that at 25 universities, fewer than half of students find professional work within 15 months.


    Miss Donelan cited eight computing courses with 40 per cent drop-out rates, saying: ‘There simply is no excuse for this’.

    Ireland accused murderer: Funny he looks rather “different” in the bbc photo hidden by the bbc from the front page……….his “tan” has disappeared how strange yet the very same photo in both news stories…..

    some photoshop involved in one or the other, I wonder why, everyone in the bbc picture suddenly look pale white, one picture must have been tampered with, or everyone suddenly has anaemia or is albino,





    • Zephir says:

      people tend to look “oranger” under certain lighting frequencies when the white balance has not been adjusted for, they can look tanned, or darker which is not allowed for criminals or accused murderers in the bbc world

    It never ends with the BBC.

    Major article on website:
    “ Covid: Did Pfizer’s boss cast doubt on his own vaccine?
    “I’ve never doubted Covid-19 vaccination… until now.”
    Jerome doesn’t follow news closely on Twitter, using the site mainly to tweet about sports and books he’s enjoying.

    The 41-year-old bus driver, from Quebec has mostly supported local Covid restrictions, although he admits to growing “fed up”, two years into the pandemic.

    His feed reveals him mildly grumbling about his children’s home-schooling, among posts about favourite authors and Canada’s national football team.

    But casually scrolling on the social-media site, one Monday early in the new year, he came across a video clip appearing to show the head of Pfizer suggesting his vaccine provided no protection at all against Omicron.

    Albert Bourla could be seen saying: “We know that the two doses of the vaccine offer very limited protection, if any.”

    Jerome tweeted: “If this video is legit, it has to sound off some alarms somewhere, no?”

    But the clip had been taken out of context from a longer interview, with Yahoo Finance, in which Mr Bourla had been discussing high infection rates with Omicron.

    A Pfizer representative clarified he had been referring to research suggesting while “two doses of [Pfizer-BioNTech’s Covid vaccine] may not be sufficient to protect against infection with the Omicron variant”, vaccinated people were thought to still be protected against severe disease.

    Jerome told BBC News he was generally wary of things he saw online, and on looking into the video further had realised the clip was a “small part of the whole interview”.

    “It was clear to me that small clip probably shouldn’t be taken into account to shape my conclusion,” he said.

    But he had “almost slipped into being manipulated”.

    Well, where to start. Firstly the Beeb had to go to Canada to get someone to be made sceptical and then converted back to see the light.

    Then the weasel words from Pfizer: “..suggesting…may not…still thought…against severe…”. Hardly ringing endorsement to justify the world spending billions on their vaccine. But, hey ho, the BBC is on board!

    The audio does not work but there is a transcript. Described as a ‘British’ terrorist in the article

    “I’m opening the doors for every youngster in England to enter America and f*** with them”.

    In a semi-coherent ramble about American conflicts overseas, the terrorist said: “Why do these f***ing motherf***ers come to our countries, rape our women and f*** our kids? I’m setting a precedent… maybe they’ll have compassion for f***ing Jews.”

    It is time that the the eligibility rules for British passports were changed.

    TOADY Watch #1 – interesting what the Wrongists (Socialists of all colours) let slip on the BBC

    Much hilarity between Ladies Doubles team on TOADY over a Netflix drama ‘Don’t look up’ where the US President is played by very pale Meryl Streep. The words climate change are used by an American gent (director?) who is a contributor to the item. SPOILER ALERT The plot of ‘Don’t look up’ is that there is an asteroid about to hit the earth. This American man slips in the words “climate change”.

    No. Wrong. ‘Don’t look up’ is about cosmology, very different from so-called ‘climate science’.

    The indoctrination attempts run deep at the BBC.
