    Even as we speak the bbc are referring to biden’s gaffes as “going off the narrative”. The idiot doesn’t know what planet he’s on. I’m more scared of what he could start while he’s busily sniffing little girls, than what Putin could do if the mood takes him.
    p.s. first I hope!

      An American opinion of Joe Biden-

      “Joe Biden reminds me of many of the great presidents”

      Lincoln — closest we have been to a civil war since the time of Lincoln

      Eisenhower — Eisenhower organized the greatest invasion up to that time with the D Day invasion. Biden has organized an even greater invasion by order of magnitude of our Southern border.

      Obama — His 69 million votes were a record until Biden’s 81 million votes (Democrats count all votes, not just the legitimate ones)

      Clinton — Bill Clinton’s election victory was considered genius, but Biden put together the best fraud department in US history.

      Trump — Biden has reminded us of Donald Trump almost daily, tries to tell us all his failures are Trump’s fault.

      Truman — Remember when Truman said “the buck stops here”? Everytime Biden blames others I am reminded of that.

      Nixon — Oversaw our most humiliating defeat in Vietnam until Biden came along with his humiliating exit from Afghanistan.

      Reagan — Ronald Reagan was called the great communicator, Joe Biden does not remind me of that. However, at the end of his 8 years Reagan had alzheimer’s, that is what Biden reminds me of.

      Carter — He was president during the last oil embargo. It was embarrassing then, but I suspect Biden will eliminate that from our memory.

      JFK — Kennedy had a beautiful wife, Jill does not remind me of her. But everyday I am reminded of the Cuban Missile crisis, the closest we have come to a nuclear war with Russia until today.

      Ex VP Mike Pence wants to organise a Berlin type Airlift to Ukraine, with weapons.

      And what if Russia sees it as a belligerant act by NATO and uses tactical nukes.

      I thought Mike Pence had sense.

      It seems the USA are acting like Gadarene swine, stampeding to the lake, and they will take us along with them.

    There is a crisis in Ukraine.
    Naturally that requires Britain to take in “refugees” from Eritrea, Algeria, Libya, Sudan, Hong Kong, Iran & The Philppines.

    The Syrian-war excuse for housing half the world is running out of puff. The international community (see below) must pull together to help the refugees.

    The Guardian is worried thar OFCOM might have a new unapproved head-

    Concerns are growing over the government’s plan to install Conservative peer Michael Grade as the next chair of media regulator Ofcom, amid questions over his impartiality and past business record.

    Grade faces a pre-appointment hearing in front of the Commons digital, culture, media and sport committee of MPs this week before finally being approved for the role. MPs on the committee are understood to have concerns about the 79-year-old’s suitability to oversee the regulator.

    The selection of Grade, who has led the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, came after a protracted battle to install the former Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre in the job. Dacre was initially rejected as “unappointable” by a selection panel. Ministers then reran the process, before Dacre pulled out.

    While Grade’s appointment has been cleared by a selection panel, industry figures and MPs are now raising concerns. Just last month, Grade defended Boris Johnson over the “partygate” row and said there should not be a leadership election. He criticised the BBC’s approach to reporting the story as “gleeful and disrespectful”, as well as “too aggressive”. He also said that the BBC’s request for funds to avoid cuts was “an appalling decision”.

    Grade has criticised “the woke brigade” and spoken favourably about the potential privatisation of Channel 4. One senior Tory MP privately expressed concerns about Grade’s impartiality. “He has very public views on a number of issues that Ofcom should be neutral on,” they said. When chairing the Fundraising Regulator, he was criticised after he referred to some fundraisers as “cowboys” operating in the “wild west”.

    Meanwhile, others pointed to issues that have arisen in his career since he left Channel 4, and effectively left broadcasting, in 1997. Grade has been attached to a series of failed businesses since then. In 2020, Gate Ventures, an entertainment investment company that he chaired, entered administration after a legal battle with an investor who claimed the company was being mismanaged. The company also made “unexplained” business and personal loans to the Duchess of York of more than £500,000. The high court was told this included a loan to her personally of about £288,000. Grade was forced to appear in court in person after lawyers for Gate Ventures quit at short notice over payment concerns.

    In the 2000s, he chaired financial information company Hemscott, which was fined by the Financial Services Authority over misleading advertising.

    One industry insider with knowledge of Ofcom’s day-to-day workings said that the chair’s role was one that required a great deal of time on legal issues, to which Grade was not suited. Another senior figure said: “To be chair of Ofcom, you really also need a legal brain. That takes up so much of the time. That’s not Michael’s thing.”

    Grade faces an intense grilling on Thursday. Julian Knight, the DCMS committee’s Tory chair, has already described the process of finding an appropriate Ofcom chief as a “shambles”.

    Grade will be overseeing Ofcom at a crucial time, with the regulator due to be given significant power over online platforms such as Facebook. It also comes with ministers accused of making a series of politically partisan appointments to major institutions. The Ofcom chairmanship is a three-day-a-week role.

    Rupa Huq, a Labour member of the culture committee, said something had “seriously gone wrong” with the public appointments process. She said that Grade’s appointment was part of a “war on woke” by the culture secretary, Nadine Dorries, and the Tory co-chairman, Oliver Dowden.

    “The parachuting of yet another top Tory crony to a leading position in public life where government loyalty appears to have been paramount in selection criteria is deeply troubling and part of a disturbing pattern,” she said.

    Jamie Stone, the Liberal Democrat culture spokesperson, said: “Appointing this well-known critic of the BBC and Channel 4 shows that the Conservatives are trying to muzzle our treasured national broadcasters. At a time when Ofcom is being given huge new powers to police online platforms, Michael Grade would be an analogue chair in a digital age. MPs should fiercely oppose this political stitch-up and insist on a candidate who will protect our independent and impartial broadcasters, not do the government’s dirty work for them.”

    Grade was contacted for comment, but did not respond. It is understood he will relinquish any non-executive directorships that could create a conflict of interest. He will also sit as a crossbench peer once installed in the job.ENDS

    I have left out the picture of a labour coloured MP called “huq” .

    The polarisation of public life runs deep now – and resistance from the Far Left is too strong

      “Grade faces a pre-appointment hearing in front of the Commons digital, culture, media and sport committee of MPs this week before finally being approved for the role.”

      In keeping with that level of scrutiny elsewhere, maybe they’ll ask him to say whether wimmin’ have a cervix………………


      • Fedup2 says:

        Fortunately mr grade has been round the block and probably has enough gongs and money not to be ‘turned ‘…. Which makes him dangerous to Labour/BBC .

        The culture committee will throw his recent comments at him – but they forget that there is a ‘Tory ‘ majority – which is something the red tories have forgotten .

        Being Jewish means being unapproved in the current culture – maybe he needs to convert to a false religion such as Islam to get the nod …. Following the ‘tradition ‘ that key BBC posts are occupied by coloureds and Muslims and over paid tick box wimmin …


    • Doublethinker says:

      If the Blob is very upset about the appointment it must be the right thing to have done.

    I sat down next to a homeless person on a park bench today. Wondering about how he got into that state I asked him, was it down to drugs? No he replied, never taken drugs. Alcohol then I offered? No he said never been a big drinker. Gambling perhaps, no he replied.
    Perplexed I had to ask, well what was it then?
    I forgot to turn out the lights was his answer.

    The insufferable Victoria Coren Mitchell sneers at GB News and calls one of its panellists a racist (yawn) for having made a joke about the ungrateful Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

    Only Connect was the very last programme on BBC that I found mildly watchable, partly because it managed to steer clear of leftie politics and wokeism.

    No more. Bye bye, BBC, finally and forever.


  9. Deborah says:

    We have heard a lot this last week about ‘the cost of living crisis’ and how living standards have fallen. The cost of energy has gone up an eye-watering amount. This hurts if you are on a fixed income.

    However many civil servants are still not at their desks five days a week in spite of ministers’ instructions. The same applies to many in the City and of course was it 16,000 people employed by the BBC? During covid lockdowns etc they have had much reduced travel to work costs raising their income. They may have even raised their living standards. The BBC never mentions these lucky people.

    I can remember the pressure the BBC and the Daily Mail in print put on the government to lock down or to introduce work from home (including just before Xmas 2021) and not a word about how this was a financial advantage for some.

    BBC Radio 4 six o’clock programme about bad things in the Met Police .
    I didn’t listen but it’s right that a broadcaster investigates wrong doing in public bodies and shows it to the world .
    GB News should do the same . Investigate , analyse, get experts to propose solutions and see how the public feels .
    GB News should start such a program by investigating the Gramscian and Globalist infestation of the BBC .

    Some real black-on-black violence at the Oscars.

    “Will Smith hits Chris Rock on Oscars stage”

    Naturally the BBC can’t criticise either party, as both are protected minorities who can do no wrong.

    Most entertaining thing to happen at the Oscars for many years – but imagine if the aggressor had been white!



    • Zephir says:

      Ain’t diversity wonderful ?

    The BBC are starting to struggle on topics to inspire worry.

    I find their staff having ‘views my own’ on bbc branded twitter profiles odd, especially when writing stuff they need to protect or block to avoid being called out.


  17. Fedup2 says:

    The 94th Oscars – will it make 100? The films – well whatever . If you go back through the years there are a lot of so so films and a few which truly deserved it .

    Now ? Probably like pop music – tick box dross – and TV output .

    Perhaps the people who make this stuff feel good about being ‘woke’ – but the products of show business ? Do people buy or watch it ?

    As for one coloured male actor hitting another one ? I wish it had been a ‘woman as victim ‘ – double the nonsense online traffic ….has the coloured actor been arrested yet ?

    BTW – the Oscar’s is one of those places where the BBC goes strangely nationalistic – with the efforts of rich individuals celebrated because of the colour of their passport … weird compared to the 24/7 rubbishing of the UK – particularly England …


  18. vlad says:

    Even the Biden Broadcasting Corporation is voicing criticism of the Imbecile-in-Chief, whose stupid impromptu comments are making the situation in Ukraine worse.

    “Mr Biden’s comment prompted strong criticism from veteran US diplomat Richard Haass.

    The comments “made a difficult situation more difficult and a dangerous situation more dangerous”, tweeted Mr Haass, who is president of the US Council on Foreign Relations.

    Mr Haass returned to the subject after the White House qualified President Biden’s remarks, saying: “The White House walk back of @POTUS regime change call is unlikely to wash.

    “Putin will see it as confirmation of what he’s believed all along. Bad lapse in discipline that runs risk of extending the scope and duration of the war.”

        Probably so, Fed!

        What an awful cock-up the US is making of everything these days!

        With the unpleasant tribe of Billary, Belosi, Barry and Biden ‘running’ the show, it’s not surprising that there’s so much skulduggery over there, which jeopardises the world with such crass behaviour.

        I sometimes wonder whether normal US citizens ever consider what really went wrong at their crooked election, but there again, I sometimes wonder about a lot of borrocks, usually when I hear a snippet from the BBC’s bunch of saddoes…


        • Fedup2 says:

          I think a lot of Americans are not that sharp – all you have to do is wave the flag and they’ll accept anything – such as a stolen election – only the ‘price of gas’ ( Petrol ) means anything to them … it’s over $4 dollars a gallon now …

          …. Putin knows there are no red lines when it comes to NATO – those eastern countries would be sacrificed by Biden to ‘keep Americans safe ‘…
          When I write of Biden I mean Obama …

          Back home – 4 days to the energy price hikes and a month til the next interest rate rise . Public finances will tighten whether rishi wants it or not – the money tree forest is all but cut down .

          Last week a French bank claimed Blighty is the likeliest country to have civil disorder because of the coming recession . Not sure that’s right but the sheer pressure on household budgets is gonna hurt – the BBC will love it and assign the blame to the blue labour government ….

          Key phrases coming –
          1 ‘Tory recession ‘
          2 ‘ broadest shoulders to pay a bit more tax ‘
          3 ‘painful decisions ‘

    In the past it wasn’t unusual for regimes to cancel the avant garde in literature , art , political ideas in attempts to resist change. Orwell introduced us to the contrary idea that a totalitarian regime such as the USSR would attempt to cancel the past and rewrite history , ie lie about it, in order to secure its future.
    Wokism , with its cancel culture of those who support the status quo, it’s widespread attempts to rewrite history by the idea that we should apply 21 st century values to the events of three or four hundred years ago , are just following the USSR play book.

    Squid game or some Korean-style end to the battle is now in sight

    Today’s big news, tomorrow’s fish and chip paper – so it is with our media and so it is with our politicians.

    The FT’s Datawatch feature tracks how: ‘Public opinon of Rishi Sunak drops to new low

    Of course the Labour-supporting Mirror knew from the get go that he was bound to be a: ‘Failure. No help from Sunak for those struggling. 3m Brits fear fall into debt as costs rocketing

    We know he can’t really empathise: ‘Rishi Sunak is believed to be the richest man in the House of Commons‘ (i News)

    However, he does seem to understand debt – albeit not personal indebtedness but our shared National Debt: ‘Sunak hits back. [he] has warned critics that the national debt is “ballooning” amid attacks on spring statement‘ (Times)

    Another golden political career boy has fallen from grace and now struggles to find his niche. Well, we all do make mistakes along the way and he now, oddly enough, believes we shouldn’t be punished for the odd slip: ‘Throwing a CV in the bin because of a typo is “out of date”, Matt Hancock has said, as he campaigns for greater awareness of dyslexia among employers‘ (Telegraph)

    This issue is personal, I guess. Afterall, recently the UN threw Matt Hancock’s CV in the bin: ‘United Nations withdraws Matt Hancock job offer. Former health secretary will no longer become special envoy for UN’s economic commission for Africa‘ (Guardian)

    And then there was President Biden. Apparently he was a safe pair of hands who wouldn’t shoot his mouth off like his predecesor did and endanger the outbreak of World War Three with his gaffs: ‘Blinken softens Biden remarks by saying US has no aim to oust Putin‘ – the FT there doing their level best to “soften” the news that Biden is a geriatric old dodderer prone to shooting his mouth off: ‘Biden denies calling for regime change in Russia‘ (BBC)

    We were told Russia was losing the war. And yet Putin seems to be closing in on completing his war aims – which were obvious from the outset – partition of Ukraine, gobbling up the pro-Russia enclaves, and the exclusion of the rump from EU or NATO membership: ‘Ukraine ready to discuss neutral status – Zelensky‘ (BBC); ‘Russia’s aim is slow and methodical capture of towns – military expert‘ (BBC); ‘Putin wants to divide Ukraine, West warned. Kyiv intelligence chief says Kremlin planning Korean-style partition of the country‘ (Times)

    The Daily Star informs us: ‘Ronnie Wood’s ex Jo Wood says she dated aliens because she has extraterrestrial blood‘ – I’m wondering if a lot of recreational drugs might have been invloved?

    And in further news fit for a tabloid, just in from Loch Ness: ‘Nessie “is racist”


    • Fedup2 says:

      Yeah – I think rishi is ‘toast ‘ – with caviar – rich politicians don’t make for PMs in a recession – so it’s the defence tonto or the foreign office Maggie model – not that it makes any real difference unless they dump the green crap and the railway crap and the human rights / equality crap …

We’ve learnt that most of our artistic establishment are cowards. Most of our politicians are cowards. We’ve learnt that industries that spend much of their year in award ceremonies patting themselves on the back for their bravery, stop when bravery is required.” – Douglas Murray @5:00

    The Academy, in its code of conduct, is known to take a very a dim view of violence of any kind.

    After the award ceremony was over it tweeted: ‘The Academy does not condone violence of any form.”

    A slight shuffle or a hushed whisper to her cell mates would be harshly punished.

    She had limited access to water and was given only a few ground corn husks to eat.

    “I felt like an animal, not a human,” she said.

    She told the BBC she spent hours being interrogated for doing something many of us take for granted – leaving her country. She was trying to escape North Korea in 2007 and was caught in China and sent back.

    Hmmm funny how Will Smith got all high, mighty and slappy about his wife, yet only a few months ago his wife spoke at length about his and HER extra marital affairs !! cue more crocodile tears from him.

    Yep his Oscar is well deserved for Best Actor – for his performance of contrition.

    Sadly, diversity has ensured that we get 2nd class services of everything – from politicians, to medical treatment, to journalistic reporting, to public services, to the movies. Of course it shouldn’t be, but, there is a difference.

    Malmo stabbing prompts soul-searching in Sweden


    A long article about two female teachers stabbed to death by a pupil.

    Look very very hard and you might spot this statement from a lecturer which gives the only small clue to the possible identity and motive of the killer…

    “He says it’s too speculative to draw any conclusions about potential links between the latest school violence and any recent societal shifts in Sweden.”

    That’s the Swedes, import murderers then go shtum and look the other way when they run amok.

    It will now be flooded by silence for a few months and then it will slip out in the small print that the killer was possibly a recent arrival in Sweden.

    Bear in mind that the the school is described as “A Christian School”.

        I don’t get how you can say the BBC article is talking about Islam
        The whole article is about picking events with no Muslim connection, and then shouting “Far Right”

        “A string of violent attacks at schools in Sweden has a nation not used to such tragedies now looking for answers.”

        – Last Monday, two teachers were killed. An 18-year-old pupil who confessed
        – In 2015, a 21-year-old wearing a Darth Vader-like mask marched into a school in Trollhättan in west Sweden and killed a pupil and a teacher with a sword in a racially motivated attack that made global headlines.
        – over the past 15 months there have been three school attacks, in addition to Monday’s stabbings.
        – Last August, a 15-year-old student with Nazi sympathies seriously injured a teacher
        – In January, a friend he had met online was arrested following a similar attack in which a pupil and a teacher were injured.
        – A year earlier a 25-year-old walked into his former school carrying an axe and a knife, injuring a pupil.

        “Most of them are suffering from a rather long period of social psychological disorder!”
        says .. who’s also researching right-wing radicalisation.
        .. they share fantasies of violence, racism or anti feminism.
        it’s clear that right-wing extremists have “made use of” the Nordic nation accepting record numbers of immigrants in recent years in their propaganda.

        That’s 5 events
        A Tweeter says
        One stabber is ‘racially motivated’, one is a Nazi sympathiser, others are anti-feminist, anti-refugee.

    As I can’t see executives and management taking massive pay cuts down to UK minimum wage level, I expect the 800 sacked workers to be re-employed tomorrow and P&O to file for administrative receivership the day after.

        There seems to be a desperate effort to get kids who missed education to ‘catch up ‘ – but maybe the answer is to focus on the important stuff –

        If a load ‘miss out ‘ on university and go straight to apprenticeships which lead to real paying jobs then that’s good –
