    OK then let Scotland take all of them in .

    TWatO Watch #1 – in which the Montacutie moans for forty minutes ……

    … about the Government’s announcement of the transfer of bogus asylum seekers to Rwanda. Is this a record? No essential questions were asked or answers obtained from HMG despite inviting a spokesman, Andrew Griffiths, on to the programme. I would like to know “How much will all this cost the UK?” and “Will we be deducting this cost from the sums that we are sending to Brussels to buy ourselves out of the EU?”

    Surely to prevent the bBC rounding up all the dissidents to oppose the Rwanda Processing they must be held offshore.

    Their status is illegally attempting to enter the UK.

    Should the bBc attempt to become a significant opponent then its operating Licence must be suspended.

      Isn’t it all bluddy amazing, s.trubble, that the BBC spends days burbling on about how people have to be held accountable for their actions, mustn’t break any law whatsoever (e.g traffic offences ?), and must suffer the consequences…….. until it comes to illegal immigrants, of course. Swift sidestep by the Beeboids at every level.

      And note, this removal from the UK will only apply to single men – women and children (accompanied or unaccompanied) will be exempt…..can the ‘captain’ of a RIB perform marriage ceremonies on the high seas, and (what was the phrase the BBC seemed very eager and pleased to widely promote the other day ?…..oh, yes) ‘polyamory’ marriages at that ?

      And anyway, what is likely to be the biggest impact of this new process….. why, it will almost certainly act as the biggest deterrent to illegal immigrants we could ever imagine….not many of them will be willing to risk travelling across the 30-mile wide English Channel route by inflatable dinghy, only to have 4,000 airmiles added to their account when they get here. So it is likely that very few such criminals in this category will ever need to be evicted by the UK. Everybody can therefore be happy.

    At the time of writing this (2:50 pm 14th April 2022) the BBC News website in Business / Market data shows that the GBP has reached a 5-year high against the EU Euro. It is currently 1.220 Euros. I wonder if this will be reported by the BBC ?! It certainly would be if it reached a 5 year low. Is this despite or in of spite of Brexit BBC ??


  5. The Mouse says:

    Apologies (my fat fingers) it is 1.2110, however this is still a 5 year high so same message applies.


    • Doublethinker says:

      I remember some anti Brexit expert opining that the exchange rate was the most important measure of the health and power of a country’s economy. I’m not sure I agree with that but nonetheless that was his opinion. Of course it was his opinion at a time when the pound was at around 1.1 Euros. No doubt if the pound keeps rising his opinion will have changed.
      In the aftermath of the referendum I was prepared to give Remainers time to grieve . As the years have gone by I have lost patience with their refusal to accept a democratic result and I am now furious with them, all of them.
      Mind you one thing I suspect might be true Is that the shock of Brexit, Trump , Poland, Hungary and Salvini has forced the hand of the globalists and they are now proceeding full speed ahead with the abolition of democracy and the nation state in favour of a world government which they of course run.

    Actor Cuba Gooding Jr has admitted forcibly kissing a woman, in a plea deal that is expected to bring criminal proceedings against him to an end.

    The Oscar winner pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour charge of forcibly kissing a waitress in a nightclub in 2018.

    He must continue counselling for six months and avoid any further arrests.


    “I am a celebrity figure. I come into contact with people. I never want them to feel slighted or uncomfortable in any way.”

    One of the two other women addressed the court on Wednesday, telling how Gooding Jr had grabbed her breast “as if I was a piece of meat for dinner that night”, according to the Associated Press.

    “I feel very sad and feel very lost for what I can do,” she added.

    Gooding Jr still faces a civil lawsuit brought by a woman who has accused him of raping her twice in 2013, which he has denied.

    • Thoughtful says:

      I’m not sure who photoshopped Khan into this picture but they clearly don’t appear to realise that this is the Golden Temple of Amritsar Holy to Sihks NOT Muslims.

      Secondly, the reason Imran Khan was ousted from Prime Ministership was because the Chinese are no longer backing Pakistan which is really going to suffer come this Autumn when the food shortages start to bite.

      Expect lots and lots of hand wringing from the BBC and Red Boris the bottler. You can expect that the food which we have available to feed the British people will instead by sent by the cowardly hand wringing virtue signaller to Muslim countries which the BBC and the Woke left approve of.

      The BBC is totalitarian in it’s views (agree or don’t progress or even get in) and cannot be penalised for doing anything wrong such as giving a paedophile celebrity status and allowing him to groom kids on national TV.

      The BBC now believes it has the answer to what the demographics of a truly diverse company should look like …

      The BBC can reveal news about EU Referendum campaign using £350 million per week but not refer to it’s own fact finding web pages which show £350m before rebate and £261m after rebate.

      The BBC believe all it’s presenters are following the BBC impartial guidelines even when they twitter the following ‘It’s hard to see a single positive (in BREXIT)‘

    “Starmer could not even decide what is a man or woman.”


    • Thoughtful says:

      Interesting that Starkey picks up on the same issue I have illustrated many times here, the poor pay on offer to British politicians.

      He notes that Churchill was paid the largest ever advance for his book four times that of the Prime ministers salary.

      This at the time was £10 000 pa or the equivalent of £500 000 today.


      • Nibor says:

        I cannot believe that raising the pay of politicians will raise the standards or efficiency of Parliament.

        If anything it could make things worse , as a bigger wage means they have more to lose if they don’t toe the party line and occasionally use their conscience, not the tribalism that’s there .

        The great wages and bonuses of the bankers didn’t stop the banking crisis of 2007 .

        Also where are these better class of politicians going to come from ?
        It doesn’t automatically flow that someone who is the best industrialist, artist , writer or financier will make the best politician, or even an adequate politician.

        Wellington was the best general but not the best Prime Minister .


        • BigBrotherCorporation says:

          Nibor, you’re not wrong that someone who is skilled/successful in another field wouldn’t necessarily make a brilliant politician.

          However, what we have at the moment all seem to be either ex(?)lawyers and those who’ve been to Eton and read PPI at Oxford… neither of whom seem much good as politicians either.

          I’d be willing to give people who have more ‘life experience’ in various PRACTICAL fields a chance at running the country, or to put it another way, I’m not sure they could do any worse.


          • Nibor says:

            Big Brother Corporation,

            The answer seems to be to revert to older times . Or radical overhaul.

            Perhaps every candidate for election has to declare how much he will take as his renumeration plus expenses.

            Or every constituency, via the local council, decrees what the successful MP earns .
            One constituency might be generous, another not so .but the constituents decide .

            I’m willing to agree with Thoughtful’s précis if it means more democracy and accountability, but so far I think it doesn’t.

    • Thoughtful says:

  19. Londoner says:

    Does anyone seriously believe the government plan to relocate some migrants in Rwanda will ever happen? The BBC has already started using emotive words such as ‘cruel’, and combined with the massed ranks of the well-organised left including the incredibly powerful army of ‘human rights’ lawyers, plus the other loudly shouting left-wingers, some of whom will be prepared to tie themselves to the aeroplanes scheduled to remove migrants, it doesn’t stand a snowflake’s chance in Hell. But then Boris and Pritti Patel will be able to say ‘Well at least we tried’, without actually having to remove one illegal migrant from Britain.

  23. Deborah says:

    It was inevitable. 6pm BBC1 news and Mark Easton suggests one of the terrible reasons for sending illegal immigrants to Rwanda was they were being sent to a country they hadn’t been to before. And there I was assuming they hadn’t been to the U.K. either.

    And now we are having another reporter, Nick, saying ‘some say’ it won’t work. He didn’t say who ‘they’ are, perhaps they are his BBC colleagues or left wing lawyers, but he didn’t say.

    I might add telling us that the potential new immigrants on the French coast were surprised at the announcement,, which they said at least three times wasn’t great reporting. I expect the BBC thought Boris should have gone to France and discussed the Rwanda plan with the potential immigrants before announcing it.


  24. Deborah says:

    BBC1 6pm news and there was Katie standing above a motorway at Swanley warning how busy things were going to be this weekend on the roads. Well perhaps everyone has already reached their destination or perhaps the cost of fuel, or even diesel shortages are having their effect. However one side if the motorway was so quiet I thought the road was closed and the other wasn’t much better.

      Maybe I’m just tired, but it took me a while to work out ‘Wrong’ was the name of the author of ‘Do not disturb’, apparently a recent book about how evil Rwanda is.

      It actually sounds like a fair deal for any real asylum seekers to me, they’re saying they’ll be taught to drive, if they can’t already, and have free language and trade lessons, plus clean, healthy, modern housing… all they have to do is not badmouth the hand that’s feeding them, and maybe spend the last Saturday of every month doing a bit of a clean up of their litter, and if that’s too much – leave.

      If I, and my family, were fleeing for our lives, I’d take them there – gladly.

      “Out of Kigali, Wrong says it is a “poor agrarian society where every inch of fertile land is being cultivated and which doesn’t really have room to take refugees”.”

        The Russians were quite simply extremely foolish to place a ship inside the zone without it having early warning and a capable + tuned up anti-missile system on a hair trigger – having rows of missiles along the side of the ship – well – that just compounds the exposure…

    You wouldn’t distract voters from a potentially embarrassing situation by an UNpopular policy .

    So even if the Rwanda policy is a distraction (?!) its A Good Thing . Because it’s populist. And populism is not a Bad Thing in a democracy.

    So Rishi, your depressing unpopularity and poor management of the economy, which is nearing the disgrace of Gordon Brown’s crass/reckless ‘prudence’, is to be expected by normal citizens, but as you don’t seem to be very British, I suppose that’ll be your problem when Bozza decides to hang up his hair! Thought you might like to know that! Odds lengthening as we speak!

    Just a thought, but how many little beeboids are recognisable these days? I don’t think any of them are, they’re becoming a bit ‘indistinct’! Won’t be good when they have to go private!

      And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

      On a more serious note, the Tesco’s wine deal which I have been taking advantage of for years now is no longer what it once was, prices of many wines are increased before the deal, then given a discount, and prices then come back down when the deal is over.

      The number of deals where there is a reduction and then 25% off are few and far between, and nothing like as attractive as they once were.

    How to have an easier Easter‘ promises the Daily Telegraph: ‘From bubbles to barbecues, top chefs share their tips for fuss-free entertaining

    There’s no such thing as a fuss-free family get together for the Royals: ‘Harry and Meghan’s shock visit to Queen‘ – exclaims the Mirror.

    Royal world exclusive‘ boasts the Sun headlining the story carried by the Mirror, Mail, Express and Telegraph – in fact all major titles other than the snooty lefty ones that pretend they aren’t interested in the Royals.

    It was veteran BBC Wimbledon commentator Max Robertson who employed the catchphrase: “Oh I say!” in connection with tennis – but perhaps we should think more of that caddish comic character actor Leslie Phillips and his: “I say, ding-dong” when we read: ‘Tennis scandal. Revealed: Power abuse and sexual favours rife in umpiring‘ (Telegraph) – is nothing sacred?

    Some very late news just in from the Middle East: ‘Jesus died after “dislocating shoulder”‘ (Telegraph)

    This was, apparently, a sort of occupational injury suffered whilst carrying the cross. I suppose we all have our crosses to bear.

    Lest we cry heresy, we ought at least note the Telegraph is the only national daily frontpage to acknowledge how it is that today is a rather important date in the Christian calendar.

    Although the Daily Star comes close with one of their trademark typical punning weather shock reports: ‘Good fryday

    The Express proves the old adage great (tabloid) minds think alike: ‘23c… A sizzling good fryday

    Let’s not get carried away. 23 celcius is actually just a smidgen above room temperature and I wouldn’t trust the Express to barbecue the sausages – which require something in the order of 190c to fry.

    Whether they tell you something 2,000 years after the fact, or just a day late, sometimes it is simply too late: ‘Check in luggage a day early to beat queues, flyers told‘ (Telegraph)

    There’s an irony to the Guardian’s take on the Rwanda migrant plan: ‘PM outlines proposal to send people 4,500 miles on one-way tickets‘ – but that’s exactly how they choose to rock up here in Britain – on one-way tickets.

    Irony again from the left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper: ‘Patel faces legal battle over “cruel” Rwanda plan‘ – these are of course illegal entrants to the UK.

    PM wants first Rwanda migrant flights in weeks‘ (Times)

    Or at least not see his proposed flights blocked and grounded by legal challenges or runway protesters until after the 5th May local elections – like we know damned well is exactly what is going to happen.

    The BBC internet has a feature on the local elections. It is
    headed ” I honestly don’t have a clue” This is the face of BBC TV now. It is the face of a black man.
    The BBC has given up any pretension of being a NATIONAL
    broadcaster. It has become in presentation more similar to
    for instance the Jamaica Gleaner or the Daily Jang in Pakistan
    or the Dainik Bhaskar in India.
    There are nothing wrong with these media outlets. They
    represent the people from their countries. The BBC no
    longer represents the indigenous population of the UK.

      At fist glance that photo looks a bit photoshopped to me
      I wonder if there is any provenance ?
      The armband and hat look very big compared to the head.

      “The image appearing to show Colin Davis several decades ago was sent to Jewish News this week”
      “Another source familiar with the photograph alleged it had been taken during the 1980s, and had been found at a property previously lived in by Davis and his former wife.”

      “Asked to explain the photograph ahead of his suspension, Davis initially told Jewish News he could not recall dressing up as a Nazi”
      He said “Presumably somebody has supplied you with the photograph and presumably they can offer you some details on how and when it was taken and everything else.

      “I do not recall parading around… at the time I suspect I was a serving member of the British Army reserves.”

      Yes one thought is, if you were photographed as a cadet etc. It would be easy for someone to photoshop in a Nazi hat and uniform.
      I don’t see anything wrong with mocking actual WW” Nazis just like TV comedy does.

        “I don’t see anything wrong with mocking actual WW” Nazis just like TV comedy does.”

        There is something of a contradiction, ‘black face’ = bad
        + ‘joke nazi outfit’ = bad, are they both bad for the same reason? Does that make any sense?
