    I Finally decided what the BBC represent. They are in fact a globalist organisation driven by common purpose. They despise our island nation view of the World,

    They want us all to submit to the grand globalist plan.

    They want to smash allegiance to our country to bring about a change to a submission to a global power structure which they view as superior in every way.

    This explains why they are on a desperate and almost embarrassing mission to flood our screens with every type of non-British face they can on every program they can push it into.

    So we either agree or fight with our every being.

    So choose your enemy, because the BBC are now enemies of the patriotic British population in every way possible.

    So we decide to become slaves or masters of our own destinies. The choice is yours.

    I say smash the BBC out of existence they are the most dangerous threat to the UK in history.

      Problem is, every disinterested Government displays tacit agreement with your analysis with their support for Globalism by not acting positively to tackle the problem. Ditto Marxist ‘Critical Theory’ aka Wokism.


    • Doublethinker says:

      Exactly so and the most effective way to damage the BBC is to persuade as many folks as you can to stop paying the License Fee. If enough folks do that the BBC can’t do anything about it and even this Lilly livered apology for a Tory government will find it suddenly very easy to abolish the LF and set the BBC as a subscription only service. The power to free ourselves and the long suffering country from the tyranny of the BBC is in our hands.


      • NCBBC says:

        Stopped paying long while back. Recycle their letters addressed to the Occupant. Don’t reply.


    • NCBBC says:

      The trouble is that any government in power sees the BBC as a necessary tool to get its agenda out in the domestic arena but understood internationally.

    Just watched on iplayer Charles Moore on Thatcher and Reagan. I was shocked. I was shocked that the BBC would commission such an excellent programme. Charles Moore interviewed the right people and asked them the right questions. I learned a lot. I recommend it.


  4. Thoughtful says:

    The Communist organisation known as “The United Nations” are blackmailing European countries that if they don’t send all their food to Africa and the Middle East the mass migration will swamp Europe completely and it will be “Hell on Earth”

    Trouble is that these left wing goons are almost certainly telling these people Europe is a land of milk and honey, and to go there and get a full belly and an empty scrotum.

    The people don’t just up and leave, they never have before, and anyone who remembers live aid would recall sticken people incapable of leaving and enduring a trip across the desert to North Africa and then Europe.

    Of course with a cowardly treacherous loon in charge he’ll just send all our food, after all he just loves giving the stuff we as taxpayers paid for away to other people for free!

      “…..he just loves giving the stuff we as taxpayers paid for away to other people for free!”

    • NCBBC says:

      The effect of sanctions on Russia has had the effect that Egypt and other countries in Africa cant pay for wheat and fertilizer in normal currencies but have to pay in Roubles. Too, the Rouble has risen in value.

      This will have the effect that Egypt will increase Suez canal transit fee.


    • kingkp says:

      Why do you think we have a war in Ukraine? It provides vast quantities of food to the Middle East and Africa. These people will be starving soon en masse as the supplies dry up. Where do you think they are coming? I’ll give you one guess.
      These are the ‘Ukrainian refugees’ fleeing to Hungary.
      Notice anything?
      You have been conned. The war was planned a long time ago and is a continuation of the Covaids psyop. Remember the Global Compact for Migration? Yep…..they predict a population for the UK of around 200 million.

      That video in the last thread about Trudeau’s new action against Rebel News is Orwellian.
      “No, journalism licence for you cos we say your output is partisan comment, but free pass to all our lefty/greenie friends to do the same thing”

      I think it’s vengeance
      Canada made contradictory laws
      They made draconian election advertising laws, which made special exemption for newspapers and books
      So the lefties turned the newspapers into election advertising .
      The Rebel then wrote books against Trudeau and friends and heavily advertised them, cos there can be no ban on book advertising. That of course was de facto political advertising too. Trudeau is smarting from that.

      The idea in Canada is that if you subscribe to a newspaper/media you can write that off against tax.
      But now donations to Rebel will be forbidden from that.
      However the Rebel readers are not the kind of people who’d try to claim such a tax exemption anyway. IMHO


  9. Doublethinker says:

    Two articles on the French election in the papers caught my attention, Andrew Neil in the Mail and Douglas Murray in theTelegraph.
    Andrew Neil thinks both candidates are not up to much but believes that Le Pen would cause huge disruption to the EU which he deplores as having a worse effect than Trump. I think we all know that Mr Neil is a globalist and therefore supports the globalist candidate. He probably found GB News didn’t want to thrust his brand of globalism down its viewers throats and so left.
    Douglas Murray is a bit harder to work out. He thinks Macron has many shortcomings but that at least he isn’t Le Pen. Although he doesn’t say it I get the impression he would vote for anyone but Le Pen.
    The question is why does he think that ? He regularly claims he fears the Islamification of Europe , the grip that Wokism has taken in the Anglosphere , the loss of sovereignty as globalism grows. Yet he supported Biden over Trump and now Macron over Le Pen.
    Who does he think might be able to roll back Islamification, Wokism and globalism? He might not like Trump or Le Pen but surely if his priorities are as he states they are far far better candidates than Biden and Macron.
    I must admit he is confusing me . You don’t need to like a politician it’s their policies that count.


  10. Yasser Dasmibehbi says:

    Double; People like Douglas Murray and Lionel Shriver will always in the end support the Establishment and always draw back from supporting anybody radical until they are 100% sure they are backing the winner. They are, after all, important people and simply cannot afford to sully their reputations by backing any populist leader, dahling.
    I would be overjoyed at a Le Pen win. Though I have to say I am not getting over-optimistic because a four day surge in the opinion polls do not a victory make.
    The big guns will be being turned on Le Pen over the next fortnight and she should expect a few knives and the back. They will try and link her with Putin for sure.
    Let’s hope this is France’s Brexit moment! I wasn’t confident then, but ecstatic when the result came through.
    Let battle commence!


    • Scroblene says:

      She’s had all sorts of muck chucked at her over the years, and while midgets like McCron still swagger about, she really does look like a winner this time, and I sincerely hope so too!

    I see Europe is going to be invaded by Nutmeg and Ginger, along with the inevitable film crew and assorted lackeys.

    No doubt via private jet, with the carbon footprint of a couple of size 14 circus clowns.

    The Nutmeg one and her constant whining about feminism reminds me of the Spice Girl idiots, band formed by men, songs writen by men (the important music bits not the zig a zag ahhh bits) , instruments played by session men, recorded by men, tours organised by men, sets built by men, and then, once taught how to sing its all :

    “Girl Power”

    Covid is all around
    but I’m not hearing much about people’s pets getting it.
    Early on there stories of cats and dogs getting it.
    Are some dying now ?


  13. Fedup2 says:

    I couldn’t sleep last night . It’s because I had a chat with my 90 plus next door neighbour . She mentioned her fixed term energy bill ends in a couple of weeks and she’s worried about paying .
    I mentioned about the welfare she is on . She said she’s on ‘pensioner credit ‘ . I said I’d go do research on what she’s entitled to .

    So I found out she can get a ‘free’ tv licence . I told her and she said ‘I got the form but they wanted to know too much so I won’t apply for it ‘.

    I didn’t know what to say . She is willing to pay £159 because she doesn’t want to give the BBC personal details . I had no answer .

    Any ideas ?


    • Zephir says:

      Sit down with her and walk her through the form, even I hate forms some just intimidated by them, also does she not have family ? time for them to step up to the plate..

      Re energy I’d also find out if she has any credit cards and if I was her I’d max them out and say come and get me then…


      • Fedup2 says:

        Yes she does have ‘distant ‘ family so I need to tread carefully … she objected to the ‘number of people living in the property ‘ question as well as giving the date of birth – both of which she regards as sensitive questions …

        As for maxing cards – none – I even queried – carefully about the council tax rebate which is difficult to get if not doing DDs ….

        Her licence is is due for renewal in 2 months …. I just want to stick it to the BBC in any way I can ….


        • Up2snuff says:

          Fed, the thing to do is to get your neighbour to get in touch with her energy supplier. Guide her to inform them of her age. Is it a dual fuel contract that is ending? If the block is a cold one and her apartment is cold you may all be entitled to a Warm Homes scheme. It might be worth also steering her towards Money Saving Expert.com and their advice.

          The difficulty will be, if I recall correctlly, that you are in an apartment block. Is that correct? It might be worth getting all the tenants together to organise your own discount group. Citizens Advice for advice.


    • StewGreen says:

      @Fed #1 When we try to help pensioners by bringing them cheap shelf food etc. we often find out that actually they are loaded
      “Oh since my husband died I’m on £300/week”

      #2 In our area there are whole range of OAP extra allowances, for fuel, mobility etc.
      You go down the library they help you fill in the form and you end up with an extra £15-20+ /week etc.

      #3 The fuel rise starts now, but soon it’s summer so most people physical bills won’t be huge until October
      Many corps prices are still lower than the cap anyway.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Stew – yes I realise that some pensioners are well looked after – I’ve always worked on the basis of never being dependent on the State so planned my way accordingly .

        In the case I describe above my main aim is to deprive the BBC of just one more licence tax … the least I can do apart from help with this site and not pay the tax myself …

    Expert said
    – Before the war the Russians already having problems
    The march of clean business in Ukraine made their own mafia businesses in Russia vulnerable.
    – Donbass was already their Afghanistan bogdown.
    – Their disinformation war was failing as Zel closed down the Russian propaganda TV station in Ukraine.

    May 9th Russian Victory Day is a very important day.
    Putin will probably try to secure the Crimea to Mariupol coast and claim victory
    – In the short term Russia is severely weakened cos of loss of troops and equipment.
    – Ukraine is defended against chemical weapons so Russia won’t risk that.

  17. micknotmike says:

    Sometimes a story doesn’t quite ring true, and I kept an eye on how the bbc reported it. This story is incredibly tragic; the missile attack on the railway station in Ukraine. The first peculiarity was that at least one missile had “for the children” written on it in Russian. I’m not aware of any Russian child deaths and the Russians would have no reason to put that on the missiles. What would make sense is if it was a Ukranian missile, aimed at the Russians, and being of a type notorious for being inaccurate. Not the sort of equipment you would use if there were your own civilians in the area, you’d think. Soon the story elaborated on both sides blaming each other. This morning it’s off the bbc front page. It’s almost as if the awful truth is that the Ukranians tragically killed their own civilians and the bbc thought “Christ, we can’t report this, it’s way off the narrative”. It would be right up there if it was proven to be a Russian strike. Bias, what bias?


    • Guest Who says:

      Tragic is the word.

      Remind me, what was the the BBC ‘investigation’ in Gaza when Grads had a habit of not making it as far as the border to keep Mishal happy?


    • Thoughtful says:

      That’s because the missile wasn’t fired by the Russians, it was fired by the Russian Supporting Ukrainians in the Donesk. It didn’t say “For the Children” It said For OUR Children a reference to the war in Eastern Ukraine which has been largely unreported and claims from the Pro Russian side that the destruction in their cities has been just as bad as those in the West of the country.

      You wouldn’t normally expect a part of a rocket to survive for the writing to be read however it does make perfect sense for the pro Russian rebels to have fired the thing, and no sense at all for the Ukrainians to potentially damage an enormously important piece of infrastructure needed to evacuate thousands of civilians and to bring in military hardware to the front.

    Saturday, if not a day of rest, can present a day of reflection for our liberal and corporate media.

    The FT should perhaps reflect on our prevailing somewhat schizophrenic attitude toward legal tax avoidance and plannning: ‘Sunak’s wife agrees to pay UK taxes on all income in “British sense of fairness”‘ – however, The FT’s Claer Barrett encourages readership to: ‘…get planning… on inheritance tax

    One rule, exploiting every loophole in the rules for us, one different rule for our politicians. One supposes even, or perhaps especially, in this day and age, that Caesar’s wife must appear to be above suspicion – whiter than white – or at least not a Non-Dom. Murphy’s Law is an old adage that tells us: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong“. Let’s call this one Murty’s Law.

    Here’s another old adage: “History repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce

    On 3 December 1988, Edwina Currie – then a junior health minister – went on television to warn the British public not to eat soft-boiled eggs. “Cook them and they will be safe,” she counselled. “But soft-boiled eggs can be very dangerous … Most of the egg production in this country, sadly, is now affected with salmonella.” (Jemma Lewis in the Telegraph, May 2021)

    Kinder chocolate factory told to shut over salmonella cases… The recall includes all Kinder Surprise, Kinder Surprise Maxi, Kinder Mini Eggs and Kinder Schokobons products… Suspected salmonella cases linked to Kinder chocolate have been reported in countries including the UK, Germany, France and Belgium‘ (BBC) – what…? Even with all those extra stringent EU food safety rules in place?

    When an old adage becomes an old saw – that’s my humble suggestion for a brand new adage.

    Even a clock that isn’t working will show the right time at least twice in a day

    Taking that adage, and I don’t mean to refer to this petulant outburst from the diminative French President: ‘French President Emmanuel Macron has called Polish PM Mateusz Morawiecki “a far-right anti-Semite who bans LGBT people”, after being criticised for his talks with Russia’s Vladimir Putin‘ (BBC) – why did he come out with that outburst at this time? Look to the Poles, or the Polls.

    But the French minnow acting the big fish did get this right: ‘”At some point, there will be a ceasefire and peace will have to be built.”‘ (BBC)

    A point our media in their over-enthusiasm seems to ignore. The BBC’s John Simpson begins to pour just a little cold water on our over-enthusiastic blue and yellow flag wavers: ‘Ukraine’s politicians are cautioning against too much optimism.

    Now to my occasional feature I like to call credit where credit is due corner…

    Kudos to the Guardian for their use of the proper English idiom: ‘Horror at the railway station

    Boos and hisses to the ‘i’ newspaper for their Americanism: ‘50 killed at train station massacre of refugees‘ and to the Telegraph: ‘PM: rail station attack won’t go unpunished‘ – sadly this seems to be a direct quote from Boris. Well, I suppose he was born in New York.

    The tabloid Sun also talks of a train station on its frontpage, while the globalist FT employs the proper phrase railway station – there seems to be no exact pattern here – other than our media taking as gospel everything the Ukraine would have us believe.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Some on here couldn’t see the problem with the wife of the chancellor of the UK being a non Dom and thus avoiding UK tax – or the chancellor having a green card until last October .

      Well – the wife is now paying all worldwide earnings to the UK and mr sunak has stopped paying tax to the US ….

      Political toast …
      And it shows how morality in politics has slipped so low …
      He should step out of public life and count his money

      • G says:


        When I think about it, who is Sunak and where has he come from?
        His is a face having just appeared from nowhere. Parachuted in no doubt from obscurity for a reason. But what reason? Who supported his meteoric climb and what do they want. Green Card? US influence directly at the top could it……………… All stinks.


        • Fedup2 says:

          I think sunak is so damaged now he is done for .
          I saw that he and his lady wife met in the US and thus have a ‘family home ‘ there.

          As a Capitalist – right wing Conservative at least – I was appalled by both the way he borrowed money and wasted it during covid .

          His lack of political awareness is beyond belief . He can ‘get away ‘ with being rich – but non Dom plus green card and whatever next . …

          If he had mentioned it in some image building interview during covid he might have got a ‘nod ‘ – but now – dead meat and rightly .

          The msm should go through the families of every MP and peer to find the non doms . And expose them to the view of UK taxpayers . Non Dom means you are foreign to the UK taxman – ( maybe in part – see the comment of the spiky up2 ) and as far as I am concerned as a whole UK taxpayer – they have no place making laws for us .
          I’ve hardened on partygate – if fixed penalties and the gray report says anything about breaking the covid rules they made – they should be gone – including nut nut who ‘aided and abetteted at the least by allowing his home to be used in that way ….

          I say that with regard to the Third World War because nut nut would be no Churchill either in the aftermath of some horror ( s) here ….

          Lastly – I don’t want globalists like sunak running the show here – it’s not colour – it’s just not what is wanted

          … by the way – wait til politicians start talking about a fund to rebuild Ukraine if the war ends without putin winning …. If Ukraine is in the EU – let the krauts pay – not us .

          I can’t see any interviews with Mrs sunak ( done by Emily ) and I reckon she’s already hired the jet and gone to California with the kids and entourage…


      • Thoughtful says:

        If Sunak had been a member of Red Labour instead of Blue Labour, does anyone seriously think this story wouldn’t have been killed dead in the water by the use of the meaningless word ‘Racism’ ?


      • Up2snuff says:

        Fed, Mrs Sunak (Akshata Murty) cannot pay tax in the UK and maintain her non-Domiciled status. You have to be in receipt of Right to Remain or Resident or Domiciled status from the Home Office. Mrs Sunak could make a voluntary payment equivalent to what would be her annual UK tax bill, but that has to be made to reduce the National Debt, it will not be taken by HMRC.

        Her hubby could then write her a nice ‘Thank You’ letter on behalf of HM Treasury. 🙂

        As I told you yesterday, tax is not about morals, it is about tax law. The HMRC will only take tax in accordance with the law of this country. Until Mrs Sunak applies to be domiciled here or takes UK citizenship, that will continue to be the case. Stop playing into Labour’s hands!


        • Fedup2 says:

          From memory IRC v Duke of Westminster HL 1934 “there is no morality in a tax “- the first tax case I read as a student – a case about tax avoidance – and it still ‘the law ‘ now .
          Is a politician and wife – the chancellor indeed – behave like these blue labour types do – they do not deserve to be in number 11- or parliament – whatever party they purport to be members of –

          You blind support for a senior amoral chancellor is frankly deluded …

          I just see it for what it is – it would matter of the policies and behaviour of the 2 main parties were at variance but they are not .

          I’m not discussing the subject on this site any more

    I see Andrew Neil has made a right old arse of himself writing in the Daily Mail today, and proving that what Ben Shapiro said of him was 100% correct.


    Neil attacks both Trump and Le Penn claims Trumps Presidency was ‘chaos’ and that the only ‘safe’ way forward is for everyone to follow the left wing liberal elites and to disregard the comprehensive record of total failure.

    The ‘lady ‘ interviewed was very aggressive in support of her perverted cause – trans – something – god knows .

    Anyway she argued about fairness . Robinson then said something like – but in terms of fairness – is it right to have separate competitions in sports for ladies and chaps?

    ( my ears pricked up because this was an armour piercing type question which could go through any transgender Russian tank)

    The angry yank tried to avoid answering this killer question and he tried again – this time he lit the blue touch paper and said

    “ you are obviously very angry about this …” to which the angry yank angrily said she wasn’t angry …..

    Laugh loud time .

    The angry lady was a thing of our time – the ultimate ‘i want ‘ – and bugger anyone else ….these people are really screwed up by too much ‘freedom ‘ and it just becomes a permanent campaign for ‘I want ‘…
    But it sounds like on this ‘willy’ question – the men have it ..

    I have softened on partygate
    “oh they made the rules, they broke the rules ..boo hoo !”

    First of all it’s civil servants so far
    I can’t name a politician that has been convicted for parties.
    Secondly it’s like being at shool
    “Oh look the teachers broke that rule, they make us obey”
    That’s cos the the rule was stupid in the first place
    Covid rules come from politicians being cajaoled into introducing bad rules.
    The bottom line is where are the dead bodies , the rule breaking caused ?
    Largely there aren’t any.
    Just like it was ridiculous to arrest that Welsh bloke who drove 15 miles to a beach instead of 10.

      Sorry Stew, I know you7’re a Blue Labour supporter, but Ceasers Wife applies here.

      You make laws which are absolutely unreasonable and then turn the dancing gestapo to enforce them with ludcrous savagery on the public, and the queen herself, and then don’t just break them once, but break those rules on several occasions, and lie to Parliament about it then an honourable decent person would resign.

      It doesn’t matter about dead bodies, covid was a scam perpetrated on the UK because our PM has a degree in classics and doesn’t understand anything of relevance in the modern world which is why he is so utterly useless at understanding anything such as economics, science, defence etc etc.

      It’s also my belief that this man is utterly devoid of moral values, and is corrupt to the core.

    Many #SriLankan families are being plunged into poverty, due to this economic crisis.
    we meet Sirisena a rickshaw driver who now skips meals due to rising food costs.

    Once upon a time, VIktor Orban was seen as a brave campaigner for democracy, demanding Soviet troops leave Hungary during the Cold War. Nowadays, he is a reliable friend of the Kremlin
    .. That is a big lie .. There are videos of him condemning the invasion of Ukraine


    • StewGreen says:

      The paradox was the Turkey item
      ‘Erdogan wisely is the peacemaker, not condemning Putin, not allowing sanctions, not closing airspace, so he can be in a position as peacemakers’

      (actually fourth consecutive term in office – his fifth in total )

      Reporter Nick Thorpe ” 37% blame Ukraine for the war”
      (I expect in reality people blame both sides, but mostly Putin)

      “Orban won 70% of seats, opposition has begun to disintergrate”
      He is keeping prosperity by capping energy prices
      (They didn’t say how. Government money can be used to cross subsidise Nationalised power I guess )

      Ukraine – Wyre Davis gave 2 examples of rural women
      A farmer who sleeps in a vegetable cellar, whilst both sides fire over her.
      A nearly dead woman who got a pass to visit her mother, but was brutally shot by Russian soldier whilst she held up her hands

      Blurb : ” Erdogan is trying to occupy the middle ground on Ukraine; he remains on good terms with Vladimir Putin, but Turkey is also a member of NATO. This has enabled President Erdogan to take a central role in efforts to reach a peace deal, inviting negotiators to meet in Istanbul. And this is perhaps the ideal city for discussions aimed at healing division. Istanbul marks the point where Europe and Asia meet, with the Bosphorus Strait running between the two. ”

    Oh stew – listening to a BBC drone saying that UK ‘soft power ‘
    ( aka the BBC ) was ignored in Hungary – was a pleasure .

    The droid even had to say he wasn’t met with hostility – during the election -,as soon as the BBC was mentioned – he wasn’t met at all – no one voting last Sunday would speak to him .

    Not stupid – those Magyars

    A point in this programme though – 2 reports from ‘dodgy ‘ NATO countries – Hungary and Turkey ….both with contact with Putin .
    Although they might be targets to be under ‘Russian influence ‘ – surely it’s good that there can still be contact between putin and NATO …?

    And of course the BBC chap could not conceive that his far left organisation could not be welcomed everywhere ….


  31. rulez the waves says:

    There is a chink of hope. On IT sites, not everyone is a MSM drone, but it is staggering how many toe the party line – well over 95%.

    These are usually very intelligent beings and arent so easily swayed by woke-ism and that sh-t cause they are mostly insulated from the raging masses of savages invading this once-green and pleasant Land.

    Maybe 5% fight to highlight the hypocrisy of the West’s stance given Iraq, etc.

    But the mob is strong and extremely dumb as proven by the complete ease in which MSM spoon-fed a child’s narrative and the populas lapped it up like good boys/girls.

    If anything, the great unwashed are LESS enlighten and liberal than 30 years ago. And so much easier to control.

    But… they only win if we give in.

    The BBC always tags Marine Le Pen as ‘far-right’ every time they mention her name…

    No far-left poltiican is treated in a similar manner….Corbyn, a terrorist [he might not pull the trigger but if you blatantly cheer for murder you’re no different to those who do pull the trigger] and Putin sympathiser, with well known extremist Marxist ideology was never labelled as such…in fact the BBC sought to play down and cover up his extreme views and present him as a moderate who also, lol, championed the police, security services, the army, Nato as well as beng someone fighting anti-Semitism when we all know he let it run rampant throughout the party.

    Guess it’s the same way they treated Trump mocking and villifying him at every turn whereas Biden gets a very different and more respectful approach.

    The BBC tries to interfere in and rig foreign elections with its news disinformation…is it any different to Putin’s Russia and its interference in other countries’ elections?

    The BBC spent years peddling what they knew was a lie about Trump being a Russian agent….but how much angst and chest beating do we see about the EU’s funding of the Russian war machine?….a very real ‘collusion’…..

    Where do we see the analysis of Merkel’s collusion with Putin, the very close relationship she had with him?…in The Telegraph [and in the German Der Spiegel]…

    ‘ Angela Merkel doesn’t deserve a quiet retirement

    Unlike her former ministers, she has stubbornly refused to apologise for the disastrous policy of appeasing Putin ‘

    ‘She was hailed as the world’s most powerful woman, the de facto leader of Europe and, for a while, of the free world. For 16 years Angela Merkel’s popularity in her native Germany never fell below 50 per cent. For those who put their faith in the EU, she could do no wrong.

    Then, when Russian tanks rolled into Ukraine, her reputation collapsed. Now her legacy lies in ruins. It is rather difficult to find a Western politician whose status has fallen off a cliff quite like Merkel’s. Ukrainians blame her for appeasing Putin and leaving them at his mercy. They recall the 2008 Bucharest summit, when George W. Bush wanted to offer Ukraine Nato membership but the Germans and French vetoed it.

    As the full horror of the Russian occupation emerged, Volodymyr Zelensky could not contain his wrath: “I invite Mrs Merkel and Mr Sarkozy to visit Bucha, to see what the policy of 14 years of concessions has led to. The Ukrainian president called on her and the former French president “to see with their own eyes the tortured Ukrainian men and women”.

    Even now, Angela Merkel apparently has no regrets. Her office issued a terse statement: “Former German Chancellor Dr Angela Merkel stands by her decisions in connection with the 2008 Nato summit in Bucharest.” She refuses to apologise, then, for any of the policies that have led Germany and Europe to catastrophe. Instead, Mrs Merkel is writing her memoirs, convinced that history will somehow vindicate her.

    Once it was fashionable to compare her with Margaret Thatcher. Yet her approach was the opposite of the Iron Lady’s. Where Mrs Thatcher stood up to tyrants, Mrs Merkel sought to accommodate them, in the naive belief that prosperity would rid Russia and China of their authoritarian regimes. Germans used to call her Mutti (“Mummy”). Not any more. Mrs Merkel is the kind of mother who, when her child is bullied and beaten up at school, refuses to confront the teachers and instead blames the victim.

    Her admirers used to boast that she enjoyed a uniquely honest relationship with Putin, because she could talk frankly to the Russian dictator in his own language. Yet the truth is that Mrs Merkel, the former East German, feared the former KGB thug – and he smelled her fear. In later years, they spoke only in German, enabling Putin to hold the whip hand.

    From the outset, there was something sadomasochistic about their relationship. When she was his guest in 2007, Putin brought his pet labrador Connie to one of their meetings, knowing that she was nervous of dogs. Yet she played along with his blatant misogyny and fell into all the geopolitical traps he had laid for her.

    The biggest of these traps was her decision to allow Germany to become ever more dependent on Russian energy. By the time she left office last year, Germany was importing 55 per cent of its gas, 34 per cent of its oil and 52 per cent of its coal from Russia. Her short-termist, opportunistic exit from nuclear power compounded this.

    Worst of all was Mrs Merkel’s stubborn support for the deeply sinister Nordstream gas pipeline project, which flew in the face of Anglo-American warnings and desperate pleas from Ukraine. She turned a blind eye to the fact that Nordstream’s chairman – her predecessor as Chancellor, Gerhard Schröder – was being bankrolled by Russian energy. Nordstream had all the hallmarks of political interference, but she insisted that it was purely commercial.

    Mrs Merkel is no less culpable for her failure to maintain German defences. On her watch, in the words of the Bundeswehr’s most senior general, they were “stripped bare”. She allowed German firms to sell “dual use” military equipment to Russia, but banned arms exports to Ukraine.

    After Putin annexed Crimea and sent his “little green men” into Ukraine’s Donbas region, the writing was on the wall. Yet Mrs Merkel persisted in “building bridges” to Russia right up to the day she left office last December. Her most senior colleagues, such as the former finance minister Wolfgang Schäuble and the former foreign minister, now President, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, have admitted that it was a fatal mistake to trust the Russian president. “Today I know — I was wrong,” Schäuble says. “We were all wrong.”

    Not Mrs Merkel, though. She, the chief architect of the European policies that gave Putin the green light to inflict war crimes on Ukraine, has yet to show any hint of contrition. It is high time that Angela Merkel said sorry to Ukraine, Europe and the free world. She owes us all an apology.

    Just when you thought you were begining to be able to cope with all the doomsday apocalypse, along come another crisis just to finish you off – the economic collapse of China.

    Might seem odd this given the growth and economic power of the Chinese bloc, but it has all been built on debt and the meddling of the Communist Party wrecking everything wuccesful once it gets too large means it looks like the whole jenga tower is on the point of collapse.

    You might remember the news about ‘Evergrande’ (not the ship which got stuck in the Suez canal, but the Chinese property company in enormous levels of debt? Well it turns out that Evergrande is just the tip of a massive trillions of dollars debt bubble about to burst, and probably dragging the rest of the world down with it!

    Covid is rife in the UK. Covid is rife in the travel industry. we are all sick with Covid. You cannot enter another country if you are sick with Covid. So the BBC – a premier news organisation, so they must know – tell us for all this week. This morning at 7 a.m., I learn that the Bee Lady is on a jolly to Paris at the TellyTaxpayers’ expense. Ho Ho. Lucky Martha.

    How nice for Easter. (Moriarty type-voice): “April in Pareeee! Pareee in the Spring, oh joy, food, luvverleee food. Oih hoi hoiyyyy!” The Bee Lady has merely gone there to report on the first round of the French Elections. Martha goes all that way, 400 miles or so, burning/emitting all that CO2 (Global Warming and Climate Change. What Global Warming and Climate Change?) just to talk to Hugh Schofield, resident BBC man in Paris. Martha could have stayed in the studio in London and done that!
