    Jack Monroe wrote a ridiculous line in the Guardian
    and I spot lot of people retweeting it including blue ticks
    “Last Thursday I was contacted on Twitter by an elderly gentleman
    who confessed he had eaten a teaspoon of toothpaste for his dinner in order to fool himself into thinking he had chewed, swallowed, tasted and digested”

    FFS a tube of toothpaste costs about 75p
    so a whole teaspoon is about 10p

    Baked beans are still 97p for 4 cans
    a slice of bred can be had for 2p

      Stew – YES – I thought my ears were playing up with that claim – I did the maths too …methinks this jack Munrow character isn’t carrying a full load…

      My dentist recommends the ‘top of the range ‘ toothpaste – a spoonful of that is probably a whole can of beans – with sausages …
      BBC likes ‘jack ‘ though eh?

    The wato mentioned the hero who killed a stabber in londonistan a couple of days ago . They want him to be freed from bail for ‘murder ‘.

    I empathise . I was once driving my car – turned into a quiet road at the very moment a diverse youth was grabbing a handbag from an elderly lady. In that split moment – as the yoof ran away I decided I would stop him – using my car.

    I never got him because he ran into a one way street stopping me .
    I sometimes wonder what would have happened if I’d run him down …
    I was young and naive then and had a stronger sense of right and wrong … wouldn’t even see the incident now – yet again intervene …

    Yeah! Jack Monroe makes waves.


    Food poverty campaigner and chef Jack Monroe is claiming victory after statistics chiefs pledged to revise how they measure the cost of living.

    Ms Monroe had complained that everyday essentials were going up in price by more than the official inflation rate, hitting poorer people hardest.

    HA HA HA – Blair given honour … HA HA HA

    The Cash-for-Honours scandal (also known as Cash for Peerages, Loans for Lordships, Loans for Honours or Loans for Peerages) was a political scandal in the United Kingdom in 2006 and 2007 concerning the connection between political donations and the award of life peerages. A loophole in electoral law in the United Kingdom means that although anyone donating even small sums of money to a political party has to declare this as a matter of public record, those loaning money at commercial rates of interest did not have to make a public declaration.

    In March 2006, several men nominated for life peerages by then Prime Minister Tony Blair[1] were rejected by the House of Lords Appointments Commission. It was later revealed they had loaned large amounts of money to the governing Labour Party,[2] at the suggestion of Labour fundraiser Lord Levy. Suspicion was aroused by some that the peerages were a quid pro quo for the loans. This resulted in three complaints[3] to the Metropolitan Police by Scottish National Party MP Angus MacNeil, Plaid Cymru parliamentary leader Elfyn Llwyd, and a third individual who continues to remain unidentified, as a breach of the law against selling honours.[4] The investigation was headed by Assistant Commissioner John Yates who later resigned over the News of the World phone hacking scandal. During the investigation various members of the Labour Party (including Blair), the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats were questioned, and Labour’s Lord Levy was arrested and later released on bail.[5] The investigation continued to have political impact throughout, as a range of stories continued to leak from the police investigation and damaged the government and Labour Party.[6]


    After a long review of the police file, it was reported on 20 July 2007 that the Crown Prosecution Service would not bring any charges against any of the individuals involved.

    Their decision stated that while peerages may have been given in exchange for loans, it could not find direct evidence that that had been agreed in advance; this would have been required for a successful prosecution.[8] Notwithstanding the lack of any charges, some[who?] considered that the investigation had severely undermined Tony Blair’s position, and possibly hastened his resignation as Prime Minister.[9]

  10. Zephir says:

    Mr (Fatty) Blackford hammered: “The impending national insurance hike hangs like a guillotine while they eat cake!

    “This is nothing short of a crisis. And the only route to restore public trust is for the Prime Minister to go.

    “How much longer will Tory MPs let this go on for! How much more damage are they willing to do?”

    He added: “It is time to get this over with, show the Prime Minister the door!”

    But Mr Johnson appeared to take advantage of the attack from the Scot as he delivered a ruthless blow back at him.

    He slammed: “I don’t know who’s been eating more cake”


  11. Zephir says:

    THIS should be headline news as it concerns every driver in the UK sooner or later:

    Mercedes owner ‘horrified’ to discover new battery will cost more than car is worth
    A DRIVER was stunned to discover the cost to replace his Mercedes Benz’s battery is £15,000 – more than the value of the vehicle itself.



    • Emmanuel Goldstein says:

      I believe his car is worth £12,500 but if it needs a £15,000 battery nobody will buy it (£27,500)
      This means that his car is now worth £0


      • Zephir says:

        Plus, apparently, £200 per hour labour charges to fit, the price for owning a Mecedes


      • Lefty Wright says:

        Or maybe it means that he would have to pay somebody £2,500 + VAT to tow it away.


    • JohnC says:

      Yes : I’ve realised for a long time now that once a battery is worn out, the entire electric car is a write off. No matter how well it has been looked after.

      Which means of course that as it approaches the typical end of battery life age, it’s value will plummet.

      They keep telling me the batteries will last for a million miles. I’ve had enough lithium laptop batteries go south after a few years with little useage to know how much I believe that.


    • micknotmike says:

      I have a colleague who is a bit of a car guru who explained something to me that I hadn’t noticed until he pointed it out. Five or ten years ago on my daily commute, there would be a burnt out car in every second layby, and now it ain’t so. When scrap metal prices are low, the local wreckers will charge you to take your car off you. Your best option is to either remove the vin plates, or leave them on and report it as stolen. Then a little run out in the country, and up in smoke it goes. Now metal prices have risen, so it’s worth weighing it in and hey presto! – no abandoned cars. At some point the greenies will realise there is a surplus of life-expired batteries, and there will be a significant charge for taking them off your hands. There’s already a charge on disposal of your old tyres, so you still find them in any convenient gateway. When your electric car is being scrapped for the cost of a new battery, and the scrappie wants a couple of grand to take it off your hands, any ideas how to avoid paying it? I don’t know how much pollution you’d get from burning out a tesla, with all that lithium and cobalt, but I bet it hangs around for a while.

    And the liberal left’s racism continues:

    Kamala Harris to attend inauguration of incoming socialist Honduran president with anti-Semitic ties
    Xiomara Castro’s running mate Nasralla said Jews control global money supply

    Additionally, Nasralla’s wife gave an apology to the Latin American Jewish Congress after she said in an interview that “Hitler was a great leader.”

    Gender is a construct ….

    Menstrual Cycle Mishaps on the Military Field
    Before looking at solutions to the “problem,” let’s look at menstrual cycle mishaps that may occur:

    For unknown reasons, menstrual cycles may alter during deployment. This leads to worries about accidents, and embarrassing leaks. Nothing differentiates a military man to a military woman more than menstrual cycles on the field. An accidental leakage can not only be embarrassing but potentially dangerous, as the red color is more obvious to spot from opposing armies. Military outfits blend into the environment, and a big splash of red on a military woman’s pants really makes her stick out.
    During deployment, military women may not have easy access to tampons and sanitary pads.
    Riding in convoys for hours on end can be a problem for a number of reasons. Not only do menstrual cramps intensify when going over rough terrains and bumps, but tampons should not be left inside for a prolonged period due to the risk of toxic shock syndrome. Also, heavy pads full of blood can feel extraordinarily uncomfortable, and can really start to smell.


    • JohnC says:

      And I pity the poor blokes having to live in close proximity to someone with PMT.

      I suspect it is ‘socially unacceptable’ to even suggest PMT exists by now : I don’t keep up with this feminism/equality stuff since it went ridiculous.


    • digg says:

      Which is why most level-headed countries only put men on the field of combat… it’s not rocket science!


      • Northern Voter says:

        Joke alert!

        What’s the difference between PMT and BSE?

        Ones mad cow disease and the others an agricultural problem!


  14. G.W.F. says:

    BTNews team up with the BBC on today’s attack on Johnson, blaming him for putting the rescue of stray mutts before the desperate people in Afghanistan.
    Shame, shame I say, sack Johnson. Boo hiss.
    At least BT News have given up on their campaign to prove that Tories don’t respect moslemness.


    • G.W.F. says:

      And from the BBC
      Boris Johnson authorised the evacuation of animals from Afghanistan during the fall of Kabul, according to emails leaked by a whistleblower.

      The PM has previously dismissed as “nonsense” claims he intervened in the evacuation of the Nowzad charity, run by former Royal Marine Pen Farthing.

      But an email from an official in minister Zac Goldsmith’s office suggests he was personally involved.



      • JohnC says:

        Their front page headline headline is:

        ‘Boris Johnson authorised Afghan animal evacuation, leaked email suggests’

        What convoluted English which absolutely should have been:

        ‘Leaked email suggests Boris Johnson authorised Afghan animal evacuation’

        The BBC’s version starts with a definite assertion then adds the doubt as an afterthought. The second truthfully presents the accusation as only a possibility.

        I think this is a new category of lie for my list. I think I will call it the ‘Lie by Assertion’ – which brings the list up to 6 distinct tricks they use to deliberately mislead the reader.


  15. Zephir says:

    God, the bbc and their desperation are becoming physically sickening


  16. MarkyMark says:

    The BBC’s COO Leigh Tavaziva told a select committee of MPs today that she expects to see “a doubling in prosecutions” thanks to the reintroduction of field agents post-Covid. A subsequent question by Richard Holden uncovered that 75% of those who will be prosecuted are women. In spite of this threat she claims there’s “strong support” for the licence fee out in the country. Nadine, over to you…


  17. digg says:

    I hope that all the people in this Country who voted for leave realise that what is going on against Boris is more that parties and cake but simply the first step in reversing Brexit.

    There is no doubt that they are just trying to topple the first domino. If they manage to dispose of Boris they will start to go after other figures in the leave camp hoping that if they can get enough scalps they will be able to demand another referendum on the basis that you can’t trust these “people”. And mark my words, they will ALL be leavers.

    Don’t be fooled folks, this has all the hallmarks of the anti-Trump lefty press campaign before the election – based on spurious smear tactics. It’s the new way the left work and it’s highly co-ordinated. The press are in on it, the Labour Party are in on it and The Civil Service are in on it.

    Knowing the political flavour at the top of the Met police I expect them to also be in on it against Boris and the Conservatives, especially the leavers.


    • Thoughtful says:

      I am not convinced that it is. I’m also not convinced that the bottler was ever anything more than a chancer regarding Brexit, and that the whole thing was hijacked by the Tories to stop Farage winning and potentially becomming PM.

      I believe it’s a little like the wars of the Roses, one family two sons, each fighting for the opposite side because one of them is bound to be on the winning side and no matter what the outcome the rotten school stil has a PM – until May was elected but they soon corrected that mistake – compare and contrast that debacle with the way they are protecting the hapless bottler.

      As for Brexit, I see that very much as being akin to the act of supremecy which also split the country for years. I can remember the antipathy against Catholics lasting well into my youth until the C of E decided Christianity wasn’t really something it wanted to practice any more.


  18. Sluff says:

    Mrs S and I watched PMQ’s live and we thought Boris did pretty well. SirKeer didn’t really make much impression and the Tory ranks were onside. That said, I admittedly did not watch beyond, as the sight of SNP Ian Blackford gives me a desire to slit my wrists.

    And after that, what do the BBC DECIDE to come up as their main webshite headline?

    ‘Johnson refuses to resign as Gray report wait continues’
    In other words, the very clear implication that the BBC think he should resign IRRESPECTIVE of what the report actually says.

    They are the utter pits.


    • Zephir says:

      Sturgeon has got away with it, (so far) but without the bbc pile on and convenient “leaks” on a daily basis

I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties you want me on that wall. You need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it! I would rather you just said ‘thank you’ and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to!


      • JohnC says:

        I must admit I don’t quite understand how showing such a picture which is clearly meant to say ‘look how fat I am’ makes other fat black women feel better about themselves.

        No doubt they will take offense at that at some point in the future when they aren’t getting enough attention.


    • Wild Bill says:

      ‘Body shaming’ is the latest thing from the Wokesters, next it will be Obeseophobia, and the cancelling of anyone who criticises a fatty.

          Ah the ‘Belliwheel’

      • JohnC says:

        To me, people as fat as that woman may well feel a bit conspicuous and ashamed when they are with their friends and they all look at it.

        It’s almost like she got a semi-naked photo of herself and her fat out to show them.

        I suspect it’s all more about the desire of a small minority to take offence and get attention than to make fatties feel better.


  21. Thoughtful says:

    There is now another proven lie Boris Johnson has told, and that was over the evacuation of Pen Farthing and his pets from Afghanistan at the cost of human lives.

    He denied he intervened, it now turns out that he did, and that he did so because Carrie Antoinette (let them eat cake) told him what to do and he was too scared to say no to her.

    I didn’t vote for nut nut. I did vote knowing Cummings was the SPAD.


    • JohnC says:

      IMHO the princess is the root of all of this.

      We’ve learned that Boris is exactly as good as the person he is taking advice from.

    Jeff Taylor says that’s cos Mogg has threatened he’ll call a sudden election if Boris is forced out
    And those backbenchers will lose their seats.


  23. JohnC says:

    BBC top headline this evening:

    ‘Johnson refuses to resign as Gray report wait continues’

    This is a BBC category 3 lie by my system : ‘The Lie by Inference’.

    The inference here is that he SHOULD resign but he is refusing to.

      Complaint Summary: ‘Shocking’ levels of denial remain-from 2000 folk

      Full Complaint:

      Dear Winston Smith at the BBC Complaints Department who is paid a salary whilst others are prosecuted for not paying your salary even though they don’t want to hear what you say,

      I listened to Jeremy Vine on Radio 2 and he kept saying there were high levels of Holocaust denial (5%)… but not once (whilst I listened) did he say that the poll was from 2000 people and not once did he say (whilst I listened) what the raw data showed. I really am shocked Winston that you let this NewsSpeak through, could the BBC not have done another POLL to verify the results? You have £3.5 billion at your disposal and all Jeremy Vine can do is scare people. The link on the website does not link to the original data .. “Holocaust Memorial Day: ‘Shocking’ levels of denial remain” {27jan2019} https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-47015184 “WE RELEASE RESEARCH TO MARK HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY 2019” https://www.hmd.org.uk/news/we-release-research-to-mark-holocaust-memorial-day-2019/ Using an online methodology, we surveyed 2,006 nationally representative UK adults aged 16+. The respondents were randomly selected from an online market research access panel. Quotas were set to ensure the overall responses are representative of ONS UK population data based on age, gender and region. Given the sample size and the percentage of respondents who expressed this view, the Confidence Interval is +/-0.95% for a Confidence Level of 95%. Here are some words from Orwell’s resignation letter . “I am tendering my resignation because for some time past I have been conscious that I was wasting my own time and the public money on doing work that produces no result.
      I believe that in the present political situation the broadcasting of British propaganda to India is an almost hopeless task. Whether these broadcasts should be continued at all is for others to judge, but I myself prefer not to spend my time on them when I could be occupying myself with journalism which does produce some measureable effect.”

    Anybody here read or reading The Real Anthony Fauci?


    • MarkyMark says:

      The Real Anthony Fauci reveals how “America’s Doctor” launched his career during the early AIDS crisis by partnering with pharmaceutical companies to sabotage safe and effective off-patent therapeutic treatments for AIDS. Fauci orchestrated fraudulent studies, and then pressured US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulators into approving a deadly chemotherapy treatment he had good reason to know was worthless against AIDS. Fauci repeatedly violated federal laws to allow his Pharma partners to use impoverished and dark-skinned children as lab rats in deadly experiments with toxic AIDS and cancer chemotherapies.

      In early 2000, Fauci shook hands with Bill Gates in the library of Gates’ $147 million Seattle mansion, cementing a partnership that would aim to control an increasingly profitable $60 billion global vaccine enterprise with unlimited growth potential. Through funding leverage and carefully cultivated personal relationships with heads of state and leading media and social media institutions, the Pharma-Fauci-Gates alliance exercises dominion over global health policy.

        I’m about 1/3rd through it and tbh I don’t recall ever being this intensely red-pilled – ever.

        Monstrous hardly covers what’s gone on and importantly…. continues.

        I feel it’s important to point out that Robert Kennedy Jnr. is a lifelong Democrat – and that the corruption and sociopathic chicanery of big pharma and their poodles in politics, the state bureaucracies, the media and academia is on a grand scale that simply defies the definition of “conspiracy theory” and crosses almost all political boundaries.

        I’ve spotted some minor errors and exaggeration but they really are imho edge cases – in all it isn’t really about Fauci ( this far) but more about a profoundly corrupt sprawl of bad actors across public health in the “developed world”.


        • Fedup2 says:

          I always thought that if you look up the word ‘corruption ‘ in a thesaurus the word ‘Kennedy ‘ shows up …


          • tomo says:

            Well, I can only guess at what else Bobbie Kennedy Jnr has seen and heard from his position inside America’s elite… the stuff itemised and referenced this far into the account should have at least half a dozen prominent execs and medical bureaucrats in orange overalls and leg irons.

            What is quite extraordinary is the extents of the antics deployed to corral the herd over SARS-Cov2 related public ‘elf bounty…

            The expansion (and referencing) of details regarding many things that we’ve all witnessed is where the book is effective. The bullying of medical academics via funding from a combination of commercial and compromised public bodies is deserving of much wider dissemination – the evidence presented requires many more questions and some answers.

            Look up Pfizermectin.

            Thesaurus search for one word that repeats

            One early casualty of the book is Bill Gate’s reputation in the sense that “he’s using his accumulated software lolly for the good of ‘oomanitee” is clearly a fake assertion.

    Chinese Whispers?

    The BBC’s original online article on 2 December claimed “some racial slurs about Muslims” could also be heard in footage of the incident.

    The following day, this line was amended to say “a slur about Muslims” could be heard from the bus.

    A BBC London TV report on the same story, also said “you can hear some racial slurs about Muslim people”.

    However, groups including the Board of Deputies of British Jews disputed this and complained to the BBC about the coverage.

    After investigating the footage with the help of native Hebrew speakers, the Board of Deputies interpreted the words as a Hebrew phrase – “Call someone, it’s urgent”.



    • Lefty Wright says:

      “Slurs about Muslims”?
      Now I’m not a religious man but it seems to me that we can make some pretty strong slurs about Christianity and our wonderful diverse mass media will laugh along with us.

        but then she objected when he attacked hers.

    BBC Tonight “We are England” ( Follow link for picture)


    No matter how many times you try to tell us you are, you are not.

    Tonight’s TV
    8pm Talking Pictures : Rumpole
    My Times TV guide doesn’t have a pic for that as it likes to keep the black face count high
    it chooses to highlight the BBC1 Jay Blades show about his word blindness
    and the ITV cop show where a black female cop is the lead
    I am surprised it didn’t choose C4 Tinie Tempah home show, but they chose the Katie Price home renovation show instead
    For Channel5 it chooses the Tricia Goodard and Dr Amir Khan Show
    For BBC2 they choose the show with some weird white comedian.

    The 9pm BBC1 Jay Blades Hour
    follows the 8pm BBC1 Jay Blades Hour

    10:35pm Stacey Dooley doco about stalkers

    BBC2 The Hairy Bikers, Chris Packham, Greg Wallace

    This claim that middle classes ‘Brits’ are more Islamophobic appeared in a Guardian report, but was repeated without question by al bin GB News.

    I bet they would not cover a report that said middle class ‘Paki’s’ were likely to be anti Christian.

      “…BBC poll in 2015 found that 27% of British Muslims had quote ‘Some sympathy’ (27% or a third) for the people who went into the offices of Charlie Hebdo and killed the cartoonists, editors and journalists there. Channel 4 poll from last year (2015), found that only 1% of UK Muslims think that publications should have the right to publish the cartoons of Mohammed.”

    BBC political correspondents continually stating that because of Partygate the Government is supposedly not functioning.

    If the government was not functioning and of course they are, do the stupid bast–ds not realise that it’s the media not allowing the government to function because it’s the BBC and media that is constantly perpetuating the story, stupid sods.

    Let’s see what tomorrow brings

    Local BBC news item
    Would they run an item making out that big farming is evil
    and that the world should be fed from small farms
    and use the example of a community garden run by a bloke who came over from Ghana ?

      There are good reasons why we are fed by big farm industries and not little hobby farms.

    ‘The Great Migration is coming and the future for Scotland like the rest of the western world is Asian’

    I talk to the world’s leading expert on migration Dr Parag Khanna about how climate change, poverty, war and persecution will shape the 21st century



    The migrants make their way north, having no desire to assimilate to French culture, but continuing to demand a First World standard of living, even as they flout laws, do not produce, and murder French citizens, such as factory bosses and shopkeepers, as well as the ordinary people who do not welcome them. They are also joined by the immigrants who already reside in Europe, as well as various left-wing and anarchist groups. Across the West, more and more migrants arrive and have children, rapidly growing to outnumber whites. In a matter of months, the white West has been overrun and the pro-immigrant governments are established, while the white people are ordered to share their houses and flats with the immigrants. The village containing the troops is bombed flat by airplanes of the new French government, referred to only as the “Paris Multiracial Commune”. Within a few years, most Western governments have surrendered. The mayor of New York City is made to share Gracie Mansion with three African-American families from Harlem; migrants gather at coastal ports in West Africa and South Asia and swarm into Europe, Australia, and New Zealand; London is taken over by an organization of non-white residents known as the “Non-European Commonwealth Committee”, who force the British queen to have her son marry a Pakistani woman;

    Seems like the DG has told MPs that the BBC will cut employee numbers rather than wages to make savings because of the TV licence fees ….
    The trouble with this will be that morale will improve at the prospect of golden goodbyes and then being rehired at a higher rate as ‘freelancers ‘….


  46. taffman says:

    Yep !


  47. taffman says:

    As face masks will be redundant tomorrow will they be used to cover the @rses of Bo Jo and his chums when we wake up to news of more invaders being let in, as more parties are revealed, as the TV licence is not abolished, as we are still being robbed of our fish and we still have one foot in the EU?
    We are in need of a true Conservative government not a bunch of wet, circus clowns .

  49. pugnazious says:

    The BBC’s Editorial Complaints Unit defends the indefensible with mealy mouthed fence-sittery that tries to explain away the BBC’s anti-Semitic ‘muslim slurs’ report.


    It denies there was any attempt to suggest the Jews on the bus provoked the attack.

    It fails to outright say there was no ‘muslim slur’ comment but instead says there is doubt and that doubt should have been made clear….but it was still OK to report the ‘Muslim slur’ comment. It claims there is still doubt about what was said…in fact it says that it is the most likely interpretation….’ the majority finding gives support to the view that “Dirty Muslims” is a sustainable interpretation’. Really?

    It claims the reporting was justified due to the reaction of the CST to BBC inquiries about the ‘slurs’…but fails to say what that reaction had been….and the CST rejects the claim…

    ‘CST completely rejects the claim in today’s BBC report that CST confirmed to the BBC on 2nd December that an anti-Muslim phrase had been spoken on the Chabad bus that was attacked on Oxford Street’

    The ECU claims that there was no contrasting treatment when calling the attack an ‘alleged anti-Semitic incident’ and it ‘appeared to show’ Men attacking the bus as against the very definite statement that “some racial slurs about Muslims can also be heard from inside the bus”. Clearly there is different treatment here….and note in the report there was no mention that the attackers were or maybe Muslim….just the ‘Muslim slurs’ smear and a mention of the attackers waving shoes… ‘ an insult in some countries.’….which countries? Oh yeah…Muslim ones. The BBC trying to avoid linking this to Muslims as much as possible.

    Finally it makes no attempt to ask why the BBC would be so keen to find this ‘interpretation’, to make so much of it and to refuse to acknowledge it was wrong.

    Institutional anti-Semitism perhaps.

    Astounding the standards they apply to themselves versus the standards they demand from their political enemies ie anyone on the right

    There should be an independent enquiry into this blatant example of bbc racism NOT OFCOM and the police should also be questioning about a hate crime here
