    Starmer buckles to Sturgeon! Labour leader says MORE powers for Holyrood urgent ‘priority’


    Corbyn expresses ‘outrage’ that no-one convicted for Bloody Sunday murders
    He made the comments as he delivered the 2022 Bloody Sunday Memorial Lecture at Derry’s Guildhall on Saturday


    Laura Pidcock quits Labour ruling body over treatment of the left: a “hostile territory for socialists”
    Ms Pidcock has been a vocal critic of Sir Keir – especially over his decision not to restore the party whip to Mr Corbyn in Parliament, after the former leader was suspended for his response to a human rights watchdog report on anti-Semitism in Labour ranks.

    “I can’t and won’t negotiate with these people anymore.”

    TOADY Watch #1 – delayed for various reasons, bit like a well-known report

    The BBC and TOADY presenters were keen to keep unredacted/redacted naming names/not naming names Sue Gray report and the Metropolitan Police’s investigation in the forefront of everyones’ minds. The Toady contributor, Caroline Russell of the Green Party, was hyperventilating on the matter in front of a BBC microphone.

    She had nothing of real consequence to say except this.

    Caroline Russell of the Green Party knew that there will be new future mutations of Covid-19 possibly or probably causing lockdowns.

    Green party manifesto:

    MG400 We will replace existing British Immigration law with an Immigration law which does not discriminate directly on the grounds listed above (see MG205). This law will be based on the principle of fair and prompt treatment of applicants rather than on excluding dishonest applicants whatever the cost to the honest ones.

    MG205: Preference should not be given to those with resources or desirable skills.

    MG401 We will allow the partners, prospective partners, immediate families and prospective families of British residents to join them without excessive delays or unreasonable requirements for proof of relationship. This will be independent of the financial status of the resident and will not be dependent on her/him providing accommodation

    MG404 Migrants illegally in the UK for over five years will be allowed to remain unless they pose a serious danger to public safety.

    MG414 Transport providers must not be penalised for bringing people without the required visas, etc. to the UK.

    MG415 We will provide advice and assistance in appropriate languages at ports of entry and provide legal aid for immigration cases.

    We will encourage greater ethnic minority participation in the Immigration Service.

    MG420 We will resist all attempts to introduce a ‘barrier round Europe’ shutting out non-Europeans or giving them more restricted rights of movement within Europe than European Nationals.

    MG442 The Green Party will recognise the contribution of migrants and people of colour to the UK by making the 1st Monday on or after 22nd June, Windrush Day, a public holiday.

    ITV news black newsreader Gamal Fahnbulleh
    followed by an advert from Tena featuring a fat black lady

    Gamal has just left Sky News to return to ITV News Granada Reports


    • Bulldog says:


      Ah yes, Gamal “I’m asking the questions” Fahnbulleh.

      Think he went from SKY to Granada about a year ago.

      This is his interview with Iain Duncan Smith in April 2020 re covid, I switched it off after the first 90 seconds. Perhaps his interviewing techniques have mellowed somewhat since then. If memory serves he did not feature much on Sky news after the IDS interview. Appears he also had another spat with Dominique Samuels.


      • BRISSLES says:

        Funny, I hadn’t realised until I read the above, that he’d gone ! He wore his trousers a tad tighter than was seemly ! I notice these things. I see another Sky employee has hopped to GBN – Stephen Dixon.

        Simon McCoy appears to have disappeared up his own backside, probably kicking his heels til he get a call from yet another Channel.

    Hands up if you are from Cameroon.

    No takers!

    Then why did the Blackward Leaning Broadcasting Corporation put the African Cup football on the box for 2 and a half hours across tea time this arvo 1530 to 1800?

    The woke Premiership postponed all premiership matches this weekend so that all the African players could go back and cheer their home nations, what about all the white season ticket holders who couldn’t care less about African football?

    Take em down Boris.

      Is that the The African Cup of Nations whose populations are 99% black ??? The same ones that don’t take “The Knee” whilst the woke Premiership do ???

    Downing Street parties: Senior Tories demand full Sue Gray report

    Gosh ! – all the senior Tories demand it.

    No. Just Christopher Chope, who nobody ever heard of.

    The rather weak support evidence the BBC manage to scrape together to support the plural in the headline is just 2 others who only recommend it. They don’t demand it.

    You are desperate, blatant liars BBC. I detest everything you stand for now.

      Watching the drip-drip-drip of stupid woke nonsense being inflicted on the populations of Canada, Australia and New Zealand by the mindless jumped up puppets put in control, I predicted a massive backlash would happen many months ago.

      I hope this is just the beginning of sanity with normal citizens telling the maniacs that thought they were the countries new messiahs that enough is enough, step aside or get removed.

      Come on Canadians, Australians, Kiwis….You were once some if the most independent and strongest willed on the planet, time to end the fake ruling club of nutters and take the reins again.

    I notice the BBC are going big on the anniversary of Bloody Sunday.

    What about the anniversary of Warrenpoint when 18 soldiers were killed. What about the hundreds of soldiers that died in various massacre’s.

    Of course the BBC won’t mention the lads and lasses that died, it doesn’t suit there woke,pathetic leftie agenda.

    The only time us veterans get a mention is when they are in court for something that happened 40+ years ago on jumped up politically motivated charge. And of course even before the trial begins the cretins at the BBC will have us already guilty..

    I notice the BBC have started playing vomit inducing sombre music in the background to maximize what the deem as an already sad story…Bloody Sunday was awful but so was the whole bloody war…Time to move on and as a veteran who served 3 years in total in Northern Ireland, I have.


    • JohnC says:

      WIll they be showing pictures like this as well to provide some balance ?.


      And maybe a few true-to-life descriptions of those the IRA ordered to be on some wasteground at a specific time then put a bullet through each kneecap. And how those people usually got drunk first because they knew what was coming – so the hospital could not give them anesthetic.

      I remember when the BBC was a mark of quality. Now they are hard-left activists and they disgust me.


      • dafydd says:

        …and the poor women who were tied to a lamp post and tared and feathered

        …and not just bullets through the kneecap, they would use drills…through the kneecaps and elbow joints…..

        The place was hell on earth…

        The BBC will conviniently forget the appalling atrocities of the IRA…..


        • JohnC says:


          I concede that some killing of the IRA by our soldiers may well have been as the result of extreme predjudice. If I was SAS with a KNOWN IRA murderer at the end of my barrel, I would not have read him his rights. And in hindsight (after Blair gave them all letters preventing any prosecutions), it would have been the right thing to do.

          When they tortured and murdered people, was done through sheer evil. What do you say maxicony ?. Want to try and defend them and the BBC ?.

          No. Thought not.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Dafydd – I reckon there are plenty of IRA supporters in the BBC who want their favourite terrorist group( non Islam branch ) to go at it again …..
      Just part of the ‘dividing ‘ process of Marxist ideology to undermine former great countries like the UK ….

      One of those days which should be forgotten – whereas so many terrorist atrocities should be remembered with their victims – dead and living …

    More BBC lies .. YouTube commentator on the outbreak of the virus which must not be mentioned Dr John Campbell has been ‘ fact checked ‘ by the BBC ..

Saying for example in article they have contacted him when he says they have not ! https://youtu.be/bza1gAc8sOA

    Interestingly the BBC article he refers to was written by a … And this is the actual way the BBC describes her at the top of the article … ‘BBC Disinformation Reporter ‘ ..

    The BBC one show held a poll on the most popular BBC shows….


    Seems their flagship strictly come stupid and woke dr who came second and third just beaten to first place by only fools and horses,

    However, strangely missing from the top 20 are in my view the real number one and two…. Alho! Alho! and til death us do part with Alf Garnet

    Now I wonder why the BBC didn’t count any votes at all from these two shows and instead sent them straight to room 101?

    As meat loaf would have said, they are the real dead ringers for the Ministry of Truth from 1984…..

    You could not make this childish shit up!

    Who the hell do they think they are fooling?


  19. Nibor says:

    Not totally BBC related but a different perspective.

    100 000 are “ massed” at the Ukrainian border by Russian troops .
    That’s one tenth of the Russian military. Less if you include reserves of three million .
    That’s over a border of 1,500 miles .

    Countries are the culture and history of their past . Russia is a paranoid country, led by Putin , a product of his time .
    ( unless the country commits cultural and demographic suicide )
    Russia is paranoid because it’s been invaded time and time again and saw the relief from invasion by expansion. After it expanded it saw the best defence against invasion was space . That space saw it survive against the two biggest world adventurers; Napoleon and Hitler . It saw it could lose whole armies bigger than the invaders armies , but space meant the invaders would “ lose steam” , run out of their supply lines and be exhausted from the space to be occupied. The more space the invaders had to conquer, the more the Russians would survive . Space also meant time .

    Crimea was Russian until Krushkev gave it to the Ukraine in 1955 . Now imagine that we were subsumed into a EU superstate and the EU commission gave the Channel Isles to the French for control .

    A little final thought , we joke that we watch The Great Escape on bank holidays , and Colditz is a BBC treasure in its good days . Russian prisoners of war were starved to death .


  20. Fedup2 says:

    Not the BBC
    But the weekly monologues by Neil Oliver is something which the BBC could not countenance now . The nearest I can think of was the ‘letter from America’ by Alistair Cooke .

    You can tell that the effort he puts into his monologues delivers a value the BBC can no longer achieve . It replaced ‘letter from America ‘ – which I listened to from the 1970s through to the end – by ‘a point of view ‘,

    What a travesty of a title – 15 minutes of approve tick box approved views . …

    … ok – I gave up on it a while ago – because it was only an approved ‘point of view’.

    But think about that – friends – all thatR4 output and they spend 15 minutes a week with what is meant to be an independent ‘view ‘ but which can only be ‘ approved ‘… the shame ….

    So ironic her behaviour towards him is exactly what he is talking about !

    Her desperation to smear his reputation and twist his words is palpable

    Truly sickening attempt at bullying which is what the interviewee was referring to all along was what women bullies did


  23. Zephir says:

    And these anti government plotters are coming out of the woodwork at last:
    here is one of them accidently exposed by the bbc, and from the civil service:

    BBC journalist ‘exposes Foreign Office Afghanistan whistleblower’ by publishing image of diplomat’s email on Twitter

    Sima Kotecha published Twitter photograph of email from Nigel Casey
    Toolbar at bottom of screen showed computer may have been linked to email account of senior mandarin at Foreign Office
    Tweet was swiftly deleted but keen-eyed Twitter followers spotted staff member’s name
    Leak is now subject of formal process by the Civil Service

    The civil servant, who is said to be passionate about civil rights and poverty alleviation, is believed to have worked in aid programmes in northern Africa before joining the Civil Service around six years ago.


    A Foreign Office spokesman said it took ‘all allegations of security breaches extremely seriously’, adding: ‘We are currently conducting an internal investigation into allegations of improper disclosure of sensitive communications. It would be inappropriate to comment further while that inquiry is ongoing.’

    A BBC spokesman declined to comment last night.

      Holding power to account, remember that ?

    Multi millionaire BLM marxists in action:

    BLM transferred millions to Canadian charity to buy mansion formerly owned by Communist Party:

    Black Lives Matter (BLM) moved millions of dollars to a charity in Canada run by the wife of co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors to purchase a mansion that used to be the headquarters of the Communist Party of Canada, according to public records reviewed by the New York Post.

    M4BJ, which is a non-profit based in Toronto that was set up in part by Janaya Khan, bought the 10,000-square foot mansion for $6.3 million in July 2021. Khan is the wife of Khan-Cullors, a self-professed Marxist



  25. Zephir says:

    “Last year, Khan-Cullors resigned from the organization after an investigation revealed that she spent $3.2 million on homes in Georgia and Los Angeles. She reportedly denied that the homes were purchased with donations to BLM.

    Cullors stepped down from her role as executive director of the activist group’s central foundation last year amid questions about her finances. Cullors was questioned intensely on a series of real estate investments and property purchases, leading to criticism for her perceived opulence while claiming to be a Marxist.”

    Joni Mitchell has joined Neil Young in having her music removed from Spotify…‘ (Observer)

    Musician has condemned misinformation on platform’s top podcast, saying ‘they can have Rogan or Young’‘ (Guardian)

    Spotify Is Removing Neil Young Songs After He Complains of ‘Misinformation’‘ (New York Times)

    So the old grey lady (I mean the New York Times, not Joni Mitchell, 78, pictured frontpage of the Observer looking like Methuselah’s mum) admits defeat in this attempted cancel culture move; since Spotify obviously prefers Rogan to Young and moreover the left-leaning NY Times at least has the modesty to put scare quotes around the supposed ‘Misinformation’.

    Closer to home, our Guardian comes over as a rather more determined culture warrior: ‘Neil Young’s battle with Spotify is principled – and comfortable‘ – so says Alexis Petrides – who he? Public health expert? Epidemiologist? Virologist? Nope: Alexis Petridis (50) is the Guardian’s head rock and pop critic. All the (Neil) young dudes… carry the news…

    Our supposedly conservative-leaning Sunday Times and Telegraph appear to call for a Big Yellow Taxi for Mr Johnson: ‘“Frat house culture” led to ban on PM taking secret papers home‘ (Sunday Times) – couple of points to make here. One: what’s with this American cultural take over in reference to Frat house culture? Dave Cameron was always branded as a Bullingdon Club chap and that seemed to suffice. Two: What’s this about taking red boxes home… isn’t the expensively redecorated Boris flat famously upstairs in No10?

    PM’s aide watched cricket as Kabul fell‘ (Sunday Telegraph) – I’m sorry but I’m immediately reminded of that famous scene in the classic British comedy Carry On Up the Khyber where there is a rebel native attack on the official colonial residence whilst they are eating their meal stiff upper-lippedly as though nothing out of the ordinary were happening.

    Seems a safety override failure.

    However…. not mentioned is how a hand, alone, from outside, comes to be trapped inside.


    • StewGreen says:

      Sources said the incident highlighted the problem of some passengers wrongly believing that train doors will automatically reopen if an attempt is made to stop them closing.

      The woman had tried to jam her hand in the dior as it was closing.
      She then had to move at a “fast walking pace” as the train pulled out, before being able to free her hand prior to the driver spotting the problem and bringing the train to a halt.
      Despite the RAIB stating that she was “dragged”, this is felt by other sources to be a slight exaggeration

Lapshyn later detonated a home-made bomb outside a mosque in Walsall on 21 June.[38] On 28 June, Lapshyn detonated a second home-made bomb near a mosque in Wolverhampton, and attacked a mosque in Tipton with an improvised explosive device containing nails on 12 July. He later admitted to police that he wished to start a “race war”[39] and was sentenced to serve at least 40 years.[40][41][42]

    Plenty of criticism this morning across the media of Met Commissioner Cressida Dick to sticking her oar into the Partying at Downing Street, but all of them studiously avoiding the obvious question.

    Why? What has she been offered to induce her to take this course of action?

    Pretty plain when there is a cabal of influential powerful people surrounding a wounded PM attempting to make the problem go away that they would use any means at their disposal to make it happen.

    The obvious question should be exactly what has been promised to Cressida Dick and what is it that she might want in order to have taken this action?


    • G.W.F. says:


      I would suggest that what she might want is a promise not to be sacked for her general incompetence.

    @RachelFairburn was wrong on #bbcnewsquiz Evidence is that #JohnsonOut6 WAS at lockdown parties but Jeremy Corbyn was NEVER antisemitic.

    Apart from the fact Corbyn celebrated the painting that portrayed Jewish bankers as controlling the world
    RachelFairburn didn’t make a joke about Corbyn.

    The other half point out the joke was made by Isabel Hardman.

    “Yeah, I mean Corbyn was just a really unfortunate guy in that he just kept accidentally befriending antisemites in the way Boris Johnson just kept accidentally walking into parties where there was cake…”

    ‘Does he hold us for fools!?’ Anjem Choudary lodges new appeal with European Court

    Hate preacher Anjem Choudary has lodged an appeal against his conviction for encouraging support for Isis with the European Court of Human Rights.

    “I merely gave an Islamic opinion in 2014, that in my opinion at that time they fulfil the criteria (to be considered an Islamic State).


    Muslims lawyers (who should also be on a watch list IMO)

    It is understood the appeal will be funded pro-bono by lawyers. Last week we revealed the cleric was feared to have influenced British hostage-taker Malik Faisal Akram – shot dead by cops at a Texas synagogue.

  44. pugnazious says:

    From Our Own Correspondent oozed sympathy for Merkel and Germany’s refusal to upset Putin, downplaying and soft-soaping the close relationship Merkel had with Putin…naturally Germany is not supporting Nato…they have so much business to do with Russian, they have the gas pipeline…and Merkel grew up in the East along with Putin where she may actually have worked with him….no wonder they had such an affinity, such a close relationship and such a similar understanding.

    Contrast that with how the BBC demonised Trump and peddled a fabricated claim about him for years insisting he was in the pay of Putin….of course he wasn’t but Merkel quite probably was….the most successful agent the Soviets ever had…even if just purely by default….but the BBC excuses her ‘collusion’ and manufactures ‘collusion’ for Trump…odd huh?

    Odd that the Germans themselves question the German government continuing that grovelling to Putin…..a [lefty] DER SPIEGEL Editorial….

    ‘Germany’s Position on Weapons for Ukraine Makes No Sense’

    Oh but it does to the BBC.

    However….what’s the damage of the collusion?

    ‘The German government refuses to deliver weapons to Ukraine. In doing so, Berlin is undermining Western deterrence and encouraging Vladimir Putin. ‘

    Guess the BBC has picked its side.



  45. pugnazious says:

    The BBC again picking sides as it downplays the ‘Freedom Convoy’ in Canada protesting the vaccine mandate for truckers….note how the BBC starts off….


    ‘After a week-long drive across Canada, a convoy of big rigs has arrived in the national capital to protest vaccine mandates and Covid-19 measures. Organisers insist it will be peaceful, but police say they’re prepared for trouble.’

    So already linking the convoy to ‘trouble’…..they go on a bit later quoting police claims that this could be an entrypoint for the Far-Right….why put in such rubbish? Amazed the BBC doesn’t also link in QAnon which is its favourite bogeyman at the moment. Not as if you ever see similar warnings about Extinction Rebellion or BLM or any Muslim ‘protest’ from the BBC.

    Just so you get the message…anyone who doesn’t get a vaccine is not only a dangerous, irresponsible and selfish sociopath but maybe….just maybe…a Nazi.

    ‘Police say they are concerned about how the convoy has attracted extremist rhetoric, and some far-right groups have suggested they might also head to Ottawa.

    “The demonstrations this weekend will be unique – fluid, risky and significant,” Ottawa police chief Peter Sloly said on Friday, noting they are “massive in scale” and “unfortunately they are polarising in nature”.

    He said that police are preparing for potential parallel and counter-demonstrations and were concerned about people on social media in Canada and abroad “who may or may not come to the city” but “who are nonetheless inciting hate, violence and in some cases criminality”.’


    • digg says:

      Chief Police Peter Sloly’s response over the Ottawa convoys comes straight from the Chinese Communist playbook. If you don’t like what people are saying, first demonise it, then you can ban it and then vanish it as many people in China have found out the hard way.

      What we have in Canada is “soft” Communism but it will get brutal at the first opportunity.

      Much the same approach is marching through our Schools, Universities and News Media. It also has a stranglehold in global empires such as Google, Netflix, et. al.

      As always there will probably come a time when the only option left is to push back. The Ottawa phenomenon suggests this might have already started.

    Guardian re Bloody Sunday


    • pugnazious says:

      Can’t be true…the BBC told us yesterday that Bloody Sunday was the start of all the violence in NI and it was British soldiers what done it….never mind the long history of violence and terrorism from Republicans preceding Bloody Sunday. Have they never heard of Michael Collins? Bloody Sunday didn’t start anything….it was the continuation of a long drawn out conflict.

      Heard ‘More or Less’ trying to debunk the 17000 figure….‘Social media and some news outlets have spread claims this week that only around 17,000 people have actually died of Covid. We debunk.’

      So basically if you are healthy and catch covid there’s very little chance of dying. Interesting that in the freedom of information data [see last video] it shows fairly consistent death rate for the young…in 2020 it was about 1500 and in 2021 the same, whilst the death rate for the elderly dropped significantly…because they were the first to be vaccinated….the death rate for the young staying consistent disproves the BBC’s suggestion that early figures are unreliable and thus deaths were probably higher and more than the official figure.

      They say that covid was the cause of all the other deaths even if you had underlying conditions…including of course the famous being run over by a bus…..but that’s almost a philosophical question….you could look at it completely the other way and say they only died because of the underlying conditions…they probaby wouldn’t have died without them if they had caught covid…so…what killed them? The BBC opts for the choice that suits its own narrative rather than letting us decide for ourselves.

      Many death certificates said ‘with covid’…the BBC has decided that all those deaths are due to covid when that’s just not the case. Sure covid may have pushed some of them over the line but is that then the cause? Again that’s a philosophical point.

      ‘More or Less’ wasn’t exactly neutral…the tone was anyone who used this figure was an idiot….those ‘clever people on the internet’ as the presenter dismissed them.

      The video that upset the BBC….
