Weekend 22 January 2022

Well- the increase in TV Licence Tax will be stopped at the current level for the next 2 years . At the same time there will be a ‘ discussion ‘ about the funding model for the BBC in the run up to the next charter review in 2027 . Wouldnt it be great if the publicly funded BBC ends then ?

      Anyone else notice that Rob Brydon is getting regular TV “outings” right now. Everything from cookery shows to panel games. This could be part of the trough hand outs that secretly takes place within the broadcasting elites. Brydon is not the first I have noticed, there seems to be a conveyor belt of approved celebs picking up nice little earners.

      It smells of sharing the profits with the anointed or favouring the stars with the best agents.

      I guess also that this can equally be the first indication that the “star” is on their way down to end up on funeral adverts in the middle of the day.

      However, to me it smells a bit like grift!

      I do however warn readers of this post that once they notice this strange TV/Celeb behaviour they won’t be able to unsee it!


      • BRISSLES says:

        Can’t see Oti Mabuse doing funeral ads anytime soon. She’s clearly flavour of the month for all the booking editors and agents. That’s why tv is so bloody predictable, once a ‘face’ proves popular they’re never off the screen ie Bradley Walsh, Carole Vorderman, Ambitious Holden, Davina bloody McCall, and then there is the ‘celebrity’ merry go round of reality shows and panel games (yawn) where they pocket another few thou while they’re waiting for the next big part in a soap ! its the streaming services that keep me sane from the banality of low intelligent no marks.

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #1 – what?

    What a load of rubbish. Jets, RAF, USAF, regularly practise at low levels over the UK. If you want a shock it is a battlefield helicopter with a German cross on its flank flying up the Thames past your office window.

        I recall driving down the side of a valley in Scotland with the music turned up then hearing an almighty noise over my right shoulder that I thought might be a speeding artic trying to overtake me.

        Turned out to be a Tornado flying alongside but over the valley bottom.

        A somewhat similar experience, also in Scotland, turning left onto a main road which I thought was clear. Next moment, wham! A shockwave of sound. Across the road was a mainline railway with an overbridge and an HS125 had just burst out from under the arch.

        For both experiences there was that fraction of a second of doubt that I had neglected to check my mirrors!

    You won’t hear many voices spelling out these truths…..and note an FOI request asking for the number of deaths solely from covid resulted in a figure of 17,000….and the Media, BBC especially, along with Labour and its front group, Independent Sage[lol anything but independent], are responsible for the lockdowns….as well, of course, as the cowardice of Boris who caved to the pressure and the faux outrage when ‘herd immunity’ was first raised…apparently it would have been mass murder, genocide, to follow such a policy of ‘letting it rip’ as the BBC so often, and so dramatically, puts it….the cowardly u-turn didn’t save him though as the BBC openly blames him for thousands of deaths in the second wave…..never mind lockdowns don’t save lives they just delay deaths.

    And maybe if we hadn’t locked down and instead spent the billions on the NHS we could have had an NHS that could cope with any future epidemic or variant rather than squander billions in a one off spending spree on furloughs, grants to businesses and other massive hand-outs to help people through lockdown and business closure. How many such sprees can we do? Properly resourcing and increasing the capacity of the NHS would be an ongoing thing and not a one off…..whereas now we will have to ‘save the NHS’ again and again…you know the pro-lockdown voices will be shouting loudly everytime a new variant appears however ‘mild’ just as they did with Omicron long after it was shown to be ‘mostly harmless’


    • digg says:

      I would for one would like the teaching unions to be investigated for the bloody and totally unnecessary oppression they laid on innocent children with their over the top mask demands for children in classrooms all day. It was quite obviously designed to throw a smoke screen over all the “missing in action” teaching staff.

      They needed people to worry about children so they wouldn’t start to wonder about all the “missing” staff.

      The quality of personal respect and dedication to duty by huge chunks employed in the public sector has tanked and reveals the abscence of any sense of duty to the children or public.

      We are now deeply embedded in the “why should I bother” scenario aided and abetted by the shady union bosses, both safe in the knowledge that they continue to get paid whatever unlike most other people and eventually retire ten years before the rest of us with far larger pensions to enjoy it. And NO, 3 years on a teacher training course paid for by Joe Public does not mean to me that they automatically deserve it.

      The same goes for local authority staff but that’s another can of worms…

  11. BRISSLES says:

    I’ve now given up watching the press reviews on any channel. Apart from Andrew Pierce, all the rest are blatantly left wing, and even before Boris and the Pandemic, they were sticking the boot in. I wonder if if if if the Labour Party ever get in, whether the likes of Rachel Shabi, Sonia Sodha and Christina Patterson – the 3 Witches of McWhine will ever agree to come on air and listen to the failings of their party ? I somehow doubt it. To be fair its only these women who are the main protagonists, most of the chaps usually put forward a good argument.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Kay-Achim is a strange name for a white German man.

    Nusrat Ghani: Muslimness a reason for my sacking, says ex-minister

    I wonder if it ever crossed her mind that her Muslimness might be the reason she got the job in the first place and she simply wasn’t good enough.

    It sounds to me like her entire attitude was the problem. But we will never know the truth of a story like this from the BBC.

      She is clearly lying, and even a child could see the proof.

      Have Nadim Zahawi, Sajid Javid and Pritti (useless) Patel experienced such issues?

      There are plenty of Muslims in the Blue Labour cabinet and this is proof that people are making false claims, which should be punishable in law.
      Calling someone one of the many meaningless isms and fauxbias can wreck lives and careers, and even put lives in danger. There needs to be some consequence for those who make these falsified claims, to protect the second class ordinary White people of this country.


  15. Fedup2 says:

    Nice to see the BBC leading with this ‘claim ‘ – which as from only 2 years ago . But seriously – does it sound sound . Your point about tokenism – Muslim ( tick ) female ( tick ) is well made –
    – but it looks like any false Tory with a grievance is coming out of the swamp . Maybe they’ll enjoy opposition .
    The BBC is certainly being the opposition giving such prominence …..

    Looking across the papers – another female Muslim – a BBC employee called samira Ahmed gives an interview in which – when asked about what advice she’d give to others is “join a union “ ….


    • BRISSLES says:

      This is what happens when countries want to consider themselves as ‘multi cultural’. Allegations and counter allegations about faith and race – some may not like it but we never had these problems on a daily basis 50 odd years ago. Its now a regular occurrence and will only get worse – blaming the 85% white population for their grievance at not being born like them.

      You lose your job get over it, but no, there has to be a 15 minute of fame plus a bit of compo if you throw race or faith as a reason.


  16. Yasser Dasmibehbi says:

    Whilst I have been very critical of Boris, I am now hoping that he succeeds in riding out this rebellion. The latest pile on especially with people like Wragg and Nusrat joining in has helped me change my mind.
    Also I saw an interview with Steve Baker and was left somewhat underwhelmed.
    I did like the idea of David Frost taking over the actual running of number 10 leaving Boris to be PM. That has a lot of good reasons going for it.
    Is the suggestion still a runner?

      well it could easily do, if they keep changing the rule and count flippant Social media comments as crimes.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Stew – I’ve watched compstat in the NYPD for maybe 20 years – there might well be political pressure to ‘under report ‘ crime – but I’d still have faith in the basic trend .

        It has to be read in the same way as UK police numbers – as in – it’s the tip of the iceberg of real crime because a lot of people have just given up on plod .

        I’m not studying any more but I guess the federal stats must be as bent as bent things …

    German U-boat sunk off Kiev

    Sunday often sees the papers bring out their food and dietary features: ‘Jamie Oliver’s secrets of cookbook success‘ (Sunday Times); ‘Dr Mosley’s fast 800 Keto diet burn fat without going hungry‘ (Sunday Mail); the Sunday Telegraph paints for us a wonderful idealised nostalgic picture of rural hospitality: ‘25 cosy pubs for walkers. Muddy boots off, drinks around the fire – and a hearty meal on its way‘; while the Observer piles our plates high with a veritable feast of goodies: ‘The 20 best dinner recipes. Pies, curry, salads… everyday dishes you’ll return to again and again‘ – but there’s a ghost at the feast…

    As the BBC’s online press line up puts it: ‘The Sunday People leads with a stark warning from food writer Jack Monroe‘ – there’s a blast from the past.

    Cost of living campaigner warns. Poor will starve to death. Jack Monroe’s fight 10 years on‘ (Sunday People) – I guess if you’re going to make a campaigning political claim it might as well be a big one. The Greens for instance have promised us climate catastophe. I don’t know what it’s like where you are but I’m freezing this morning. ‘The last peacetime famine in England was in 1623–24‘ (Thank you Wiki)

    Anoosheh Ashoori: Iranian-Briton to start hunger strike in prison‘ (BBC) – due to the BBC’s conferring duality of identity we’re confused as to this person’s actual nationality and we’ll have to read on to find out where exactly they might be imprisoned and whether we should be interested at all?

    The retired civil engineer, who is approaching his 68th birthday… is being held in Iran on spying charges… Mr Ashoori lived in the UK for 20 years, but was arrested in Iran after flying out to see his mother in 2017.’ – that’s the risk you take with these dodgy regimes. Did he claim asylum from Iran when he came to live in Britain? If so, why did he think he’d get a warm welcome when he holidayed back there?

    Stay at home – if we’ve learnt anything over these past two years it’s that home is the safest place in the world.

    Whitehall blob vows: We’ll work from home for ever‘ (Sunday Mail) – this of course is our civil servants laying down the law on their perferred working conditions: ‘Boris declares war on civil servants refusing to head back to office...’ – just tell them instead of WFH they can BYOB (bring their own bottle) that’ll have them clammering to get back to their numerous office working parties.

    Or perhaps have Carrie arrange one of her dos: ‘Parties inquiry turns spotlaight on Carrie Johnson and her friends‘ (Sunday Times) – this bit of modern phraseology had me smile: ‘Sue Gray is widening her inquiry to cover socialising in the flat she shares with the prime minister‘ – not the Johnson family home then? Hinting perhaps at Boris’s somewhat fickle track record? Watch it Carrie, don’t get too many ideas above your station, you’re just sharing his flat, luv. And as if to confirm this line of thinking: ‘Beware: there’s nothing a desperate Boris Johnson won’t do to save his skin‘ (Andrew Rawnsley in the Observer)

    Meanwhile the prissy side of the Observer goes all offended about the oh-so very déclassé nature of the English national sport: ‘Football’s shame…‘ A couple of fit millionaire young athletes: ‘…react after being hit by bottles thrown… The incident is the latest in a spate of trouble inside grounds‘ – yeah, since: ‘Medieval mob football was a massive ball sport played in medieval Europe. … Such massive swarms of players often led to injuries such as broken limbs..‘ (thank you again Wiki) – by the way, those bottles look as though they were plastic.

    Worse things happen at sea: ‘German navy chief resigns over Ukraine comments‘ (BBC) – here’s another headscratcher. What’s the German naval strategy here – to send in the U-boats to the practically land-locked Ukraine?

    Kay-Achim Schönbach said the idea that Russia wanted to invade Ukraine was nonsense. He added that all President Putin wanted was respect.‘ – gosh, what an interesting analysis. Somewhat similar to one’s own reading of the situation.

    But let’s face it, Germany hasn’t had a sensible foreign policy since Bismark. The statesman, not the ship one of their previous admirals went down on. And sensible foreign relations don’t fit well with EU-NATO expansionism. No wonder he had to have his sword broken, have the gilt epaulettes torn off his tunic, egg yolk scraped off his cap and be forced to walk the von plank.

    The BBC is fully onboard with the neocon-type foreign confronationalists: ‘Russia-Ukraine tensions: UK warns of plot to install pro-Moscow ally‘ – call me old fashioned but Ukraine is at least sort of in the Russian sphere.

    The Sunday Times is happy to dance to the tune of the wardrums: ‘Truss accuses Putin of Ukraine “puppet” plan‘ – come on, play fair Vladimir, we want our own puppet in there.

    They do say a sensible soldier never volunteers for anything. The Telegraph however likewise volunteers to put the Ukraine story with the neocon spin as its top headline.

    Only the lefty Observer has qualms: ‘Confusion at UK claims that Putin plans coup in Kyiv‘ – even a broken clock is correct twice a day. One quibble… what the heck was wrong with spelling it Kiev?

    Oh, and you know this internet thing… it is dan-ger-ous…

    Metaverse already rife with sexual predators‘ (Sunday Times) – Wow, how scary, we’d better control it, and tax it, while were at it. Of course it does allow our civil servants to work from home.

  26. Doublethinker says:

    I watch Brazier, Farage, Stein and Wootton on GBN pretty often and they get to the root of issues in the news and cover topics which are simply never aired on the BBC and rest of the MSM.
    As an example Stein had a piece last week where he showed a clip of some female member of the global elite saying how much closer together the international liberal elite was and how they could more closely together than at any time in history. She then said that ordinary folk worldwide had growing distrust of these elites which she thought to be a great pity as they were working for the betterment of society.Stein had something quite pithy comments to make about that.
    I’m sure that the elite in the UK won’t like their dominance being pointed out in such a way by GBN. I reckon that if the channel keeps on reporting on this type of issue the elite will soon be leaning on Ofcom to rein it in.
    A week or so watching GBN would show anyone other than a committed liberal globalist just how biased the BBC and MSM are and how much they do the elites bidding. Far from ‘speaking truth unto power’ , the BBC is nothing but a lipspittle of the globalists.

      There was no big discussion Steyn moved quickly on to Covid

      The World Economic Forum’s Great Narrative Conference: “The good news is the elite across the world trust each other more and more… the bad news is that the majority of people trusted that elite less…”

      Steyn “it’s fun to watch the elite actually calling themselves the elite
      it used to be more seemly, to let someone else say that
      … let’s have that lady from Davos here you go take it away madam, Davos a few years ago

      so we can come together
      and design and do beautiful things together
      The bad news is that in every single country they were polling the majority of people trusted that elite less

      Steyn “So hmm i wonder why that would be ?
      But it’s good to know that they can all still come together and do beautiful things together
      When she talks like that about the elite it’s almost as if the elite are no longer our fellow englishmen frenchmen americans swiss saudis
      It’s almost as if they’re citizens of Elite-land
      jetting around with priority boarding on Elite Airways far above us.
      Well-meaning elites making all their elite plans for non-elite losers like you
      And then only to make the mistake of polling you non-elite losers and finding that you don’t think these elites are all they’re cracked up to be

      The wine in a suitcase stuff from number 10 in recent days is not unimportant because it underlines that our rulers never believe the panic porn they inflicted on us
      .. this government like all governments outside of sweden florida and one or two other places subjected its citizens to cruelty’s hitherto unknown in free societies while they partied on

      … our elites are proposing to replace the prime minister with Tweedle Hunt or Tweedle Truss
      And a year or two hence Tweedle Stammer

      … Their predictions of uh up to 6,000 people a day dying from omicron were the usual rubbish as they have been for two years

      Later the Dutch journo goes states her conspiracy theory
      These Covid-Passes are basically the starting point of a larger plan issued by the European Commission
      which is called the European Digital Identity Project
      They state within that report, that these vaccine passes can be used in order to basically introduce this
      They want this agenda rolled out by 2030
      This is the beginning phase of a *social credit* system that they have in China

    The Blind Broadcasting Corporation’s inability and, worse, point blank refusal to join the dots knows no bounds.

    On Toady on Sunday around 0740 we hear that women in Afghanistan cannot find work and girls cannot go to school.
    In BBCLand this is clearly the fault of the West for refusing to send billions of pounds to the Taliban. They even wheeled on Gordon Brown to tell us this.
    Then at 0750 we had the charity appeal. It was to help prevent Female Genital Cutting. That was the description, not FGM, though being half asleep I did not hear the reason for the difference, if there was one. No matter.

    Mmm. No work, no school, FGC. Now what could possibly link them? Maybe something to do with their cultures and religion perhaps?
    But, as we fully expect, no comment at all from the Islamic Broadcasting Corporation.

    There’s more. Where are the demonstrations in the streets about these women’s rights? I’d be happy to join them. Where are the feminists? Could the ‘safe streets at night for women’ protestors maybe take a day off to protest about something closely related and in the global scheme of things considerably more prevalent? It appears not. Why the inaction? Has the Socialist Worker’s Party placard factory closed down?

    Only when we can embarrass the Tories !!!

    Oasis jeered off concert stage
    Swiss fans throw missiles after singer hurls insults
    Fiachra Gibbons, arts correspondent
    Fri 28 Jul 2000 01.10 BST

    They have fought with other bands and even each other, given the finger to the musical establishment, and told the press where to stuff it. But up until now the rock group Oasis have drawn the line at insulting their own fans.

    The bad boys of Britpop crossed that final threshold on Wednesday night when the lead singer, Liam Gallagher, succeeded in antagonising thousands of the group’s Swiss followers with some colourful insights of his own into their national characteristics.

    They responded by pelting him and the band with bottles and cans. The band claim that Gallagher and drummer Alan White were hit though the organisers of the Paleo Festival insisted that only water bags and bits of rubbish were thrown. The concert in the French-speaking town of Nyon was later abandoned.

        at one of the most important and famous venues in the world, the Whisky-A-Go-Go, the band had dreams of emulating some of the greatest rock acts of all time. Think Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Doors and everyone in between

        Liam saunters on stage with a frazzled look and tells the audience: “The fookin’ band aren’t coming. You’ve just got me tonight.” A sentiment which would later be all too likely an event, but not tonight, as the band dutifully follow him on stage. On reflection, maybe they shouldn’t have.

        What follows is a truly terrible set, quite possibly one of the worst you will ever see or hear. It was a performance full of undulating incidents of rock and roll infamy. It was a set full of issues, including [Deep breath] exploding bass amps, Noel playing songs completely different to the rest of the band, Liam threatening the audience after one crowd surfer nearly kicked over his mic, Noel sings with a camp tone, Liam, therefore, can’t be bothered to sing and sits his way through most of the songs.

    Russia Today: (US and of course bbc by default, shameful media is noticed around the world)

    “Disparate reactions to left-wing protesters at the DOI versus the ones at the US Capitol show how biased the mainstream media truly is.

    One year after the US Capitol riot, Washington seems worried about domestic terrorism only when conservatives are perpetrators, but polling suggests no one outside the establishment echo chamber is swayed by the skewed narrative.

    As a GOP congressman held up nearly identical photos of federal buildings being breached – one of the US Capitol last January and another of the Department of the Interior in October – Attorney General Merrick Garland sat stone-faced.

    Try as he might to provoke the nation’s top law enforcement official to characterize leftist protesters who fought their way into the Department of the Interior (DOI), Representative Greg Steube (R-Florida) couldn’t goad Garland into offering an opinion. While Garland has called the Capitol riot “the most dangerous threat to democracy” seen in his 44-year legal career, the attorney general said he couldn’t make any determinations about what happened at the DOI.”

    What Garland said next at the House Judiciary Committee hearing on October 21 stunned Steube. When asked if he believed the DOI rioters, like the Capitol rioters, were domestic terrorists, Garland replied, “I’m not going to be able to reference that specific incident since this is the first I know about it.”

    The riot in question involved the storming of a restricted federal government building just about a 30-minute walk from Garland’s office and just one week before the committee hearing. Environmental extremists injured multiple security officers, including at least one who was hospitalized, and 55 were arrested.

    “US Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) last month contrasted the treatment of alleged pro-Trump defendants to that of race rioters who torched American cities, causing more than $2 billion in damage, and killed dozens of people in the summer of 2020. US District Court Judge Trevor McFadden said prosecutors were undermining the DOJ’s credibility by failing to be “even-handed” about riots arising from opposite ends of the political spectrum.

    Other judges have enthusiastically gone along with the January 6 crackdown. For instance, Jacob Chansley, the costumed rioter famously known as “QAnon Shaman,” was sentenced in November to 41 months in prison, despite not even being accused of any acts of violence. Prosecutors called for a tough sentence against Chansley to “set an example” and deter any future “assault on our democracy.”

    No such example was needed, apparently, in the prosecution of Joshua Warner, a transgender Antifa activist also known as Eva Warner. The DOJ last month dropped charges against Warner after the defendant completed 30 hours of community service. Warner, who was arrested for allegedly assaulting officers at a Portland riot in August 2020, also was busted for alleged offenses at multiple other riots and let go without being charged.

    Portland was plagued by rioting for more than 100 straight days in 2020, when Antifa activists laid siege to the Mark O. Hatfield federal courthouse. Officers were assaulted with hammers, slingshots and other weapons. Warner’s alleged tool of choice was a powerful laser that can cause permanent damage when shined into someone’s eyes.”

    Ructions going on in the US as more and more parents are objecting to the ultra-woke, Marxist agendas laid down by School Boards.

    This little story shows the utter contempt that these woke disciples have for the general population including most of all, the parents.


    York Suburban School District school board member Richard Robinson has told protesting parents that they can F-off and he will continue to indoctrinate their children to become good communists as they grow up.

    It would appear that these disgusting people are in fact nothing less than left-wing political activists purposely getting entrenched in the school board system with the sole objective of bringing about a new World Marxist order.

    They have obviously concluded that being unable to attain power over rational adults through the ballot box their best shot is to “grow” a new society that comes with a built-in Marxist creed.

    Any president worth their salt would be delving into this and taking steps to curtail these people but the US have Marxist puppet Biden so that’s going to be a non-starter.

    Time for another McCarthy in the US?

    The first shoots of this repulsive trend are appearing in the UK and Europe and if we value our freedom we must confront it to nip it in the bud. The most effective way will be loud and prolonged protest directed at the goons pushing tis crap.

    Bring them out from under their stones, expose them for what they really are and let them know their machinations will not be tolerated or given a free pass.

  39. pugnazious says:

    Any inquiry into the events surrounding the pandemic must include the media response and coverage…in particular of course the BBC which must be held to a far higher standard than any other media outlet…..‘it would have to concede that by throwing its full weight behind the lockdown approach, it too should bear responsibility for the harms it caused.’

    ‘Partygate’ is alleged to be scandalous and callous….the BBC et al raced to get angry and tragic tales of lockdown compliance to contrast with the hypocritical and cavalier partygoers in No10…but the BBC never asks one thing..the real issue…was lockdown necessary, was it the best way to handle the pandemic?

    It may, or may not have been…but surely, you’d think, the BBC would ask such a question as the government plunged us into a dystopian world of extreme and draconian imprisonments robbing us of our freedoms and lives…almost destroying the NHS rather than saving it, massively disrupting education, destroying jobs and businesses and plunging us into enormous, eye-watering debt that will be a burden around our necks for decades to come.

    ‘Charlie Walsham’, a pseudonym for a BBC whistleblower who wrote previously in The Spectator about ‘How the BBC lost its way on covid’, now spells out the BBC’s approach and thinking as it reports on ‘Partygate’…..


    An elephant loomed in the studios during these distressing broadcasts: it wasn’t the cavalier interpretation of the rules by our chaotic and contradictory PM and his frazzled staff that caused these people to have suffered such unspeakably awful experiences – it was the rules themselves.

    Hearing of parties at No. 10 undoubtedly rubbed salt in people’s wounds but these wounds were not caused by ‘partygate’. This wasn’t acknowledged by a single BBC presenter. How could it be? Throughout the pandemic, the BBC has used its platforms to proselytise about every Covid rule and restriction, inducing the public to see unquestioning compliance as a virtue and dissent as sociopathic selfishness.

    And this slanted stance continues, evidenced by the BBC’s recent coverage of Novak Djokovic’s ordeal at the hands of the Australian authorities. Djokovic was characterised as the villain rather than a victim. And while much was said of the tennis player’s eccentric attitudes towards vaccinations, reporters displayed a marked reluctance to question the ethics of Canberra’s Covid zealotry or the longer-term implications for international sport, travel and bodily autonomy in general.

    Talking to colleagues about the tennis player’s plight gave an insight into the Covid groupthink endemic in BBC offices. One called him ‘an idiot’ for declining a coronavirus jab. Another showed barely contained contempt for the unvaccinated, making clear they would welcome any measures that excluded those who decline jabs from wider society.

    At times like these I find myself reeling. The human rights group Liberty describes immunity passports as ‘an overreach on our rights’ that would push ‘the most marginalised into an even more precarious position’. Yet, like Democrats in the US, Covid has somehow turned the BBC’s ‘metropolitan lefties’ into full-throated supporters of measures they would have described as ‘fascist’ only a couple of years ago.

    There was one piece of BBC output that bucked this trend. Discussing the Djokovic case, Radio 4’s World at One aired an interview with the former Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies who said she understood why some athletes might be reluctant to have a Covid jab. She cited the example of a friend who had been hospitalised after a booster shot had triggered the symptoms of a stroke – the same friend’s son, a young cyclist, had also suffered an adverse reaction to his first jab and was unable to train for some time afterwards. The presenter correctly pointed out that such adverse reactions were rare but she at least let Davies speak. This was the first occasion I had heard someone talk about vaccine side-effects on the BBC without the conversation being shut down — an exception that speaks volumes.

    When it comes to the coverage of ‘partygate’, I find myself wincing at the level of hypocrisy shown, not just by Boris — but by the BBC. It’s pretty clear the PM didn’t want to go down the route of lockdown rules and restrictions. He sowed the seeds of his own destruction and the misery of millions when he bowed to pressure from panic-stricken advisers who had convinced themselves that the repressive example of Communist China must be followed. Once this route had been taken, BBC correspondents pressured the government to go further and further, obsessing over the details of how to correctly follow every rule to the letter, irrespective of the impact on transmission.

    The reality is Downing Street staffers were much safer drinking booze in the garden of No. 10 at the height of lockdown than they were at their desks inside stuffy offices – and about as likely to catch coronavirus outdoors, under the disinfectant of blistering sunshine, as Nadine Dorries is to catch a plane to Honolulu to enjoy a girlie holiday with Laura Kuenssberg. But the BBC can’t admit this because by doing so it would have to concede that by throwing its full weight behind the lockdown approach, it too should bear responsibility for the harms it caused.

    The party may be over for Boris Johnson but when it comes to taking a balanced approach to news coverage — and thus maintaining the public support it needs to survive — the BBC, like the PM, may have passed the point of no return.’

    From the BBC…

    ‘Unmarked graves containing the remains of 215 children have been found in Canada at a former residential school set up to assimilate indigenous people.

    The children were students at the Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia that closed in 1978.’


    ‘An indigenous nation in Canada says it has found 751 unmarked graves at the site of a former residential school in Saskatchewan.

    The Cowessess First Nation said the discovery was “the most significantly substantial to date in Canada”.

    It comes weeks after the remains of 215 children were found at a similar residential school in British Columbia. ‘

    Hmmmm…..completely false….the ‘graves’ at Kamloops were not excavated and no evidence was found to back the assertion that these were the mass graves of children killed by the Catholic Church and secretly buried.

    As for 751 unmarked graves being similar mass murders….er…in fact it was a known communal cemetary.

    The Spectator tells us what the BBC doesn’t bother to fact check as Churches burned across Canada and Christianity was demonised due to the lies and black propaganda of the woeful woke warriors in politics and in the media….

    ‘When a young anthropologist claimed in late May 2021 that she had discovered 215 unmarked graves near the Kamloops Residential School in British Columbia, a wave of horror swept across Canada.

    Local First Nations chief Roseanne Casimir said that her community had ‘knowledge’ that indigenous children who had died at the school were secretly buried in the nearby orchard. In the late 1990s a child’s rib was apparently found by a tourist in the area, and a tooth in a subsequent dig in the early 2000s.

    The anthropologist, Sarah Beaulieu, scanned the orchard using ground-penetrating radar. She found 215 areas which showed soil disturbance that could be indicative of graves (or other excavations). Later on she revised the number down to 200 because stones, metal content and roots indicated other possible causes. However, she admitted nothing could be concluded until excavations and forensic investigation were carried out.

    Yet no excavations were carried out. And none are planned, according to a devastatingly thorough review of the event written by professor of history Jacques Rouillard for the Dorchester Review. He has pointed out that there is no compelling evidence yet that the deaths of indigenous children were covered up by the authorities, or that their remains were not returned home.

    A single bone and tooth do indeed point to the possibility of a terrible crime. But they do not substantiate an alleged 200 crimes.

    Nonetheless, on the strength of Beaulieu’s theory, the media and government chose to unleash a wave of violence, anti-Catholic sentiment and national shaming that lasted from the beginning of June last year through to the fall of 2021, damaging the reputations of both Canada and the Catholic Church.

    Both the government and the media took for granted that the soil disturbances picked up by Beaulieu’s radar were graves. They assumed the potential graves contained the bodies of children. They assumed that these children had been buried in a clandestine manner, they assumed their deaths were caused by abuse or other criminal behaviour, and they concluded — with no evidence — that the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, who had run the school since 1893, were complicit in 200 deaths and covered them up.

    The media began describing the site as a ‘mass grave’. A Manitoba politician who said the residential schools were founded with good intentions triggered a meltdown. Not only did he apologise, but two weeks later he said, with a straight face, that the residential school system was part of a genocidal plan devised by John A. MacDonald, Canada’s first prime minister, to kill off indigenous peoples. Nobody dared to object.

    Sixty-five churches were vandalised, burned or desecrated in what many applauded outright as acts of justified protest — ‘Burn them all!’ — while politicians shrugged off the anti-Christian violence as ‘understandable.’ China wagged its finger, calling for an investigation into Canada’s human rights violations. The flag over Canada’s parliament flew at half-mast for five months. Canadians were urged not to celebrate Canada Day or wear national colours; instead they were encouraged to dress in orange, symbolising shame at their nation’s past.

    Big money entered the picture when Ottawa pledged $320 million to aid in the search for more graves and to support survivors and their communities. A new federal holiday was established, ‘National Day for Truth and Reconciliation,’ though its effect was somewhat marred when Trudeau commemorated the day by going surfing in Tofino.

    Trudeau demanded that the Pope come to Canada to apologise in person for the Church’s role in the (government-organised) residential school system (and the Pope eventually agreed to come, though he didn’t promise to apologise). Canadian bishops grovelled, and spoke about sacrilegious church burnings in the most moderate language. A priest who dared to say that some good things had come out of the residential schools (an enormous system that existed for nearly a hundred years, garnering in many instances the support and gratitude of indigenous people otherwise lacking access to education) was forced to resign from his parish. His archdiocese apologised to anyone who was offended.

    After the ‘discovery’ in Kamloops, ground-penetrating radar indicated at least 34 similar soil disturbances near Camsell Hospital in Edmonton, where stories of undocumented burials abounded. Excavations over the course of several months found nothing and the investigation was eventually closed.

    The Cowessess First Nation said they found unmarked graves near the residential school of Marieval, Saskatchewan. But the site turned out to be an ordinary community cemetery from which the stone markers had, for some reason, been removed in the 1960s.

    Sensational reports likewise came out about unmarked graves near the residential school of Cranbrook, British Columbia. But what initial reports failed to mention was that the remains were in a cemetery still used today — and that the original markers could simply have rotted away, as wooden crosses were often used. A former chief from the area dismissed claims of suspicious activity, saying locals knew perfectly well that the graves were there.

    The Canadian government and the media now have some serious questions to face when it comes to Kamloops. Why didn’t they wait for more proof before castigating the nation and sending it into a tailspin of anger and anti-Christian violence? And will they apologise? And why, after all this, are there still no plans to excavate in Kamloops? After the dramatic fallout for so many ordinary Canadians and Catholics, doesn’t the whole country deserve some answers?’

    ‘I should have challenged him on the particular allegation of antisemite [sic] because there is absolutely no evidence that the leader of the Labour Party at that time, Jeremy Corbyn, was or is antisemitic. He had to deal with allegations of that within his party but there is nothing to suggest that he himself as an individual was. So I apologise for not challenging more directly, I should have done, and I want to emphasise there is no evidence for that at all.’

The BBC is of course more than happy to summon up the spectre of ‘Nazis rising from the dead’ across Europe as ‘populism’ takes hold…Brexit was taking us back to the Thirties, the Brexit ‘Spartans’ were Far-Right fascists, a group in Austria that wanted to control immigration were ethnic cleansers and brought to mind concentration camps….we need to learn the lessons from history!

    ‘Populism’…isn’t that just democracy in action?….the ‘People’ speaking and voting….of course not speaking the same language and narratives that the BBC thinks you should be allowed to speak thus they demonise it and like to suggest populism is just nazism in another guise.

    Is the BBC also ‘spiritually lost’? Has it lost its moral compass as it drops common sense and common decency? Not just in America is it? ‘What horrible people’…harsh but fair….the ‘do-gooders’ are often the most dangerous and damaging people…..unintended consequences abound….and as for destigmatizing paedophiles…the BBC, and C4, several years ago, curiously at the same time, both had narratives that suggested paedophiles shoud be looked on as victims as well and that it was all a bit of a witchhunt against them…and now we have the attempts to groom very young children and persuade them that they might like to change sex. How very progressive and liberal.

    House journal turns the spotlight on the unelected, unaccountable, unfireable lot…

    Big place. Thought it through?

    Plus, Brexit was last month, surely?

    Nice try, Emmy… not helping.

    And every claimed journalist and alleged reporter crawls back under their rocks. Until the next time.

      So if she was sacked because of her Muslimness, then on what basis was she first appointed?

      It’s not immediately obvious to me that her undoubted experience working in the charity sector made her a shoe-in to be a Transport minister.

    New covid cases 74,000 today.
    The lowest level for 5 weeks and surely a cause for a bit of good news.
    What’s the betting the BBC will make no contextual mention at all this and just say in gloomy tones ‘another 74,000 cases today….’
