The BBCs shock over the loss of Twitter to ‘unapproved ‘ forces threatening to bring freedom and a diversity of views continues —and might well continue for some time to come – nice – isn’t it ?

    Re. The High Court decision concerning Covid and discharging elderly people into care homes.
    Great for High Court Judges to pontificate over these matters. Meanwhile in the real World however, what could the Government have done? It was an impossible situation, these old people couldn’t have been put anywhere else, they were frail and many suffering from dementia. The Government, in my view, did the only thing that could be done with them.
    If anyone disagrees, please tell me what could have been done.
    Anither stupid Court ruling.


    • Up2snuff says:

      Flotsam, the balanced view on TWatO yesterday was that HMG was told that this novel coronavirus was so novel that it could not be transmitted assymptomatically. From what I know of viruses, all of them can be transmitted assymptomatically and I have been a victim of two viruses or maybe three if you count the admittedly rare assymptomatic transmission of the common cold virus. In other words HMG received some duff advice from people in the medical profession.

      Now, there’s a thing!


    • digg says:

      Your summing up is indisputable Flotsam, there was literally nothing they could do apart from shifting them all to Premier Inns alongside the migrants. The High Court is just the provisional wing of the Lib movement with Lawyers and Solicitors it’s foot soldiers.

      They are constantly working in concert with Labour and the lefty media and the end game is to bring Boris and the Government down so nice Mr. Stamer can take over and get into bed with Biden and the rest of the scallies in the US administration as well as the dictators in the EU. as well as having their do’s and dont’s handed down to them by the UN.

        Your summing up is indisputable Flotsam, there was literally nothing they could do apart from shifting them all to Premier Inns alongside the migrants.

        Prior to mid-April 2020, the government guidance was that patients should be discharged into care homes and allowed to mix freely with other residents with no checks or safeguards put in place.

        After mid-April the govt. guidance changed; saying that they should be isolated from other residents for two weeks.

        The court case revealed that the government had been warned about the dangers of ‘non-symptomatic transmission’ at least one month earlier, but sat on their hands and did nothing. In the mean time, thousands of elderly residents became infected with covid and died.

        A few of weeks later, Matt Hancock went on TV and boasted about how; “right from the start, we’ve tried to throw a protective ring around our care homes”.

      🦧Errr kept them in hospital?🦧


      • digg says:

        Hi Eddy, That would simply have resulted in a two-way spat.

        1. Elderly Care home residents in hospital infecting other patients…..

        2. Care Home residents in hospital being infected by other patients…

        Either way it would have been the same pillow fight against the Government and the NHS would just sit back and say to Boris “We warned you!”

        And from the public instead of “Why did you send my relative back to an unsafe care home to catch Covid” it would simply have been “Why did you leave my relative in hospital to catch Covid!”.

        So a no-win situation for Boris I’m afraid, they just needed to paint him as the executioner whatever he did!

        • Flotsam says:

          Two points arise:
          1) They couldn’t stay in hospital because the beds were needed for ill people. They couldn’t go in the Nightingale hospitals because you’re dealing with frail and disoriented old people needing specialist care.
          2) The BBC and other far left media seek, as ever, to make the most of this ridiculous judgement.


          • Up2snuff says:

            digg, I suspect HMG were given very faulty information either because the SAGEs didn’t know, or more likely the SAGEs were fighting among themselves or deliberately either to disrupt or even cancel Brexit or to advantage Labour and put the NHS on an unquestioning gravy train that is a.k.a. Labour Party funding. The fact that the PM got very sick is possibly no coincidence either. I would love to know if the PM knows the source of his infection. Hopefully his blood was analysed promptly and a trace of infection found.

    TWatO Watch #1 – I suspected the W1A view would be different

    The BBC are still exercised about the privatisation of Channel 4. Katie Razzle, BBC Meejah Corresponen’ was glo’ ‘ all stoppin’ all theh wah acrogh tha univergh” just to let us know that “no-one wants C4 to be privatised”. I think you may find, Katie, that the taxpayer will be very happy to have C4 privatised as it will provide funds for HM Treasury that can used to help people with the cost of living crisis or paying for the Pandemic or the war in Ukraine and so on.

    The alternative would be tax increases and bearing in mind, Katie, the fuss that you and other BBC personnel made about paying more National Insurance contributions to help the sainted NHS, the C4 privatisation seems like a very good idea. Now what about some other media companies that could be privatised?

    UTRECHT, Netherlands (ChurchMilitant.com) – A new Dutch translation of the Divine Comedy has erased the name of Muhammad from the opus magnum of the Italian poet Dante Alighieri to prevent the epic poem from becoming “unnecessarily offensive” to Muslims.

    Translator Lies Lavrijsen
    Translator Lies Lavrijsen told Belgian Radio 1 that she expunged the founder of Islam from her translation to give it the “widest possible accessibility,” particularly for “a younger audience.”

  5. micknotmike says:

    Not top of the bill on the beloved bbc, but on the front page. Criticism of an advert showing a young female taking her daily run alone, through the city at two in the morning. The bbc are moderately up in arms about it being “unrealistic”. This is interesting (To me at least) as they are setting up a discussion they can’t win. It applies equally to anyone in wokeland. Should the advice be “Ladies – If you go running at two in the morning, be sure to take a couple of big strong men with you”. I may suggest it and see how it’s received.

      On 22 March 2020, 7-year-old Emily Grace Jones was stabbed at Queen’s Park in Bolton, Greater Manchester, England, while riding her scooter and died shortly afterwards. Eltiona Skana, a 30-year-old Albanian woman unknown to the Jones family, was arrested on the scene and later charged with murder.


    • Ian Rushlow says:

      Women (and men) are fairly safe running alone at 2am in most parts of South Korea, Japan, Bulgaria, Warsaw, Moscow and Kiev (current situation excepted) for that matter. The BBC might care to enquire as to why this is so, whereas London, Dublin, Stockholm and Los Angeles are decidely unsafe. Hint: some countries and cities are less ‘diverse and vibrant’ than others.


      • BigBrotherCorporation says:

        Women are quite safe running around here on their own, late at night too, at least there seem to be quite a few out and about, I often see them when I’m on my way home from working late and sometimes think “Is that safe? Would I want my missus or daughter doing it?” (my missus does take the dog out for a walk in the woods on her own sometimes, but not usually after dark)… and then remember why those of us who live in the country like it here (until they build quadrillion new ‘homes’ and bring all the townies flooding in).

    The United Nations’ World Food Programme (WFP) has reached a deal with the government of Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela to provide food to the country’s schoolchildren.

    Child malnutrition has been on the rise as Venezuela’s once-prosperous economy has gone into freefall and health services have collapsed.

    More than 5.3m Venezuelans have fled their home country amid the crisis.

    The WFP aims to reach 185,000 school children by the end of this year.

    Omission is the greatest lie.

    A lucky escape for Barry Gardiner on Politics Live this afternoon, with host Jo Coburn asking everyone on the panel to give their views on China’s ‘zero Covid’ policy at the end of the show – everyone, that is, apart from Barry…

    Given Beijing Barry was found to have accepted £500,000 in donations from a Chinese spy, Guido would have thought it was an opportune time to ask Barry if he thinks the country’s barbaric Covid lockdown policy is a smart idea, and likewise, whether it was wise to accept so much cash from a CCP operative. Perhaps a chance to clear the air…

    Not so. Instead, he sat quietly in his chair as Coburn gave the floor to every other guest before hastily announcing it was time to wrap up. Saved by the bell…

    Can we expect a ‘bullygate’ daily feature from BBC news?
    Probably not.

    The BBC are featuring the suspension of one Labour MP Liam Byrne.

    But strangely the BBC seem to have forgotten that this is the same Liam Byrne who famously ( and to be fair, accurately) ’ as outgoing Chief Secretary to the treasury in 2010 wrote a note ‘there is no money left’ for his Lib/Tory coalition successor.

      The irony is we have what is really an easy, low risk means of punishing Vlad the Invader, we just need everyone to turn off the tap, and get their gas and oil elsewhere… if we still had access to our own supplies (sat there under the ground doing nothing), we could not only supply our own needs, but be selling it to the EU too.

      Still, let’s risk nuclear war, and some of our guys getting shot down, and send in the ‘warplanes’, whilst still buying Vlad’s black contraband on the sly, hey? Makes perfect sense.

        As I don’t hear or watch anything from the awful bbc these days, are there any moves to put a programme on pro-fracking, up at any time?

        I don’t even mind the lefties on LBC, because they’re balanced with some pretty good anti-woke presenters, so I can hum/fume most nights, when The Senora is softly snoring on her side of the bed!

    The BBC are now clutching their pearls in horror that one of theirs should have committed sexual misconduct.

    A couple of thoughts: the allegations span a quarter of a century, 1992 to 2017.

    Much of his misbehaviour was open and there for all to see.

    So for 25 years he abused multiple young girls, openly, and the BBC knew nothing, really?

  24. Zephir says:

    Here is a case in point to see if the bbc treats this with the same attention, I fully expect this to be headlines for at least a month to the exclusion of all else at the bbc:

    “Labour’s lockdown lies: Angela Rayner WAS at Keir Starmer’s ‘beergate’ event despite Party denying it… as MPs tell how she joked about using Sharon Stone ploy at PMQs and leader apparently flouted guidance at his own birthday bash… with cake

    Labour said Angela Rayner was also at event last year after a series of denials
    Admission came only after Labour officials confronted with video evidence
    Keir Starmer is alleged to have broken lockdown rules with beer drinking social”



  25. Zephir says:

    “Labour last night admitted it had lied about an event at which Sir Keir Starmer is alleged to have broken lockdown rules.

    In a sensational U-turn, Labour acknowledged that Angela Rayner was also at the event on April 30 last year at which Sir Keir was filmed enjoying a beer with officials at a time when indoor socialising was banned.

    A Labour spokesman said last night: ‘Angela was present.’ A party source claimed the previous denials had been ‘an honest mistake’.

    It directly contradicts assurances given to the Daily Mail over the past three months that Mrs Rayner was ‘not there’.

    The admission came only after this newspaper confronted Labour officials with video evidence that Mrs Rayner had joined Sir Keir at an online rally for activists filmed in the Durham offices of Labour MP Mary Foy where the party leader was later seen drinking.

    The extraordinary revelation raises questions about whether Labour’s deputy leader also broke lockdown rules.”

  27. Zephir says:

    BTW I looked at who was responsible for the above “report”:

    The charity funded “Commission on Young Lives”

    “Thousands of children in England are growing up living very vulnerable lives. Every year, hundreds of the most vulnerable fall off the radar of the education and social services system, putting them at increased risk of criminal or sexual exploitation ”

    They have a “call for evidence” and “suggest” the type of evidence they are looking for

    NOT A SINGLE mention of the grooming gangs exploiting kids in the evidence they are looking for, except this passing refence in the introduction:

    “Many have been influenced or groomed by criminal gangs, experience extreme levels of intimidation and violence and are victims themselves.”
    Most are boys and half in custody are Black and minority ethnic children.

    So, they have decided that that is the evidence they will be looking for: black

    Going commando edition

    Our liberal media churn out some mixed messages for us chaps this morning.

    While the freebie giveaway Metro praises the macho soldierly fighting spirit of: ‘Brit killed in Ukraine. Second fighter missing as comrades praise ex-soldier’s commando spirit

    By the way, given that our mainstream media’s prevailing narrative is that Russia is losing this war, isn’t it funny how those British volunteers, on whom the spotlight tends to fall, keep getting killed or captured? I digress.

    There’s no butch khaki heroics on the modern battlefield for chaps in the Times2 supplement – our place is apparently in front of the telly digging in to binge watch a barrage of nice Jane Austens or Downtons or Poldarks: ‘Corsets, breeches and romance. Why men love costume dramas too‘ – one might venture the opinion that men maybe yearn for an historic period before gender roles and behaviour were quite so blurred and, as the Times frontpage pics suggest, the ladies donned a nice feminine frock and the heroic soldiers wore redcoats – and the two were quite separate – until they met in romance.

    Meanwhile, in the Telegraph Suzanne Moore declares sex war as she has us blokes all pegged as sleazy chieftain tankers: ‘Why are men watching porn in public? It’s every bit as damaging for women as flashing‘ – really Suzanne, is a sneaky peek at pics of some artificially pumped up boobs exactly analogous to going commando in a public park so as to unwarrentedly share sight of one’s knackers with random women and girls?


  29. Thoughtful says:

    I suppose it was inevitable at some point, but this morning we have reports that the demented Joe Biden wants to sell the siezed assets belonging to Russian oligarchs and use the proceeds for Ukraines advantage.

    Like all Socialist horror stories it always has some laudible pretext, but here is why this is the worst thing anyone can ever imagine.

    Seizing someones private property without due process is always dodgy, and it’s probably illegal. Forget the Russian Oligarchs, and remember that the law is supposed to apply to everyone equally – even if it doesn’t in Socialist countries, so what happens to them could just as easily happen to you.

    Biden is now proposing to sell the seized assets and give to proceeds to Ukraine. This is not the first time this has been propsed however it has never been acted on because it’s illegal.

    No matter to the elites or the Biden crime family as the Russians have been denied access to due process and are unable to challenge the criminality of the state.

    Remember at each stage of this if it happens to the Russians it can happen to you.

    We all know the Bidens are a family of criminals along with many in the Democrat party, and there are some very attractive baubles which will probably be sold cheap to Bidens mates, and the money gifted into Zelenskis account.

    This is the method the great reset is achieved – seizure of personal assets by the state without compensation. The laws of private property should be sacrosanct, and we should make it known to everyone, if they can do this to the Russian Oligarchs then they can do it to you too.

If he could have infected the whole lot of them with leprosy or syphilis, how gladly he would have done so! Anything to rot, to weaken, to undermine!

    2002 UK defence chief Michael Fallon resigns after admitting knee-touching incident – but is that all?
    Complainant was a political journalist, but she says it would be ‘absurd’ for Fallon to have quit over the 2002 incident alone

    Poorer white pupils let down and neglected – MPs

    Tanzania is thought to have the largest population of albinos in Africa. Albinos are especially persecuted in Shinyanga and Mwanza, where witch doctors have promoted a belief in the potential magical and superstitious properties of albinos’ body parts. This can cause immense strain on families and relationships.

    Mark Steyn – talk about MPs touching each other or rape in UK?

    “Rape assault, then being doused in petrol.”


    • Fedup2 says:

      Mark Steyn is about the only face on TV who talks about stuff such a now ex paki paedophile convicted Tory MP – who was put on a parliamentary home office committee on Paedo sex exploitation …
      I note too who mr Steyn alludes to paki plod being close to paki paedos thus preventing action – together with paki council staff …..
      Look the other way – British State …

      Sounds like OFCOM are after Mr Steyn – didn’t take long did it ?

        A former officer for the Metropolitan police has lodged two claims with an employment tribunal against the force, citing a hostile and “racist” work environment that forced her to resign.

        The Pakistani Muslim woman, who has requested not to be named, claims she was forced to resign from her role as a superintendent in January 2020. At that time, she was the most senior female BAME and Muslim officer in the Metropolitan police.

        In the two tribunal claims seen by the Guardian, she describes the force as a toxic workplace in which BAME staff of all ranks are subjected to unfavourable discriminatory treatment, including being blocked from promotion, undermined, not supported, harassed and bullied.

    10am Local Radio discussion prog
    Guest #1 Labour MP Margaret Hodge shouting about “sexism in Parliament” ..she’s not from our area
    “Why don’t the male MPs raise the issue when they see a male MP watching porn ?”
    .. Em, cos I guess they go straight over to the guy and challenge him directly I guess.

    Guest #2 Katie B. Edwards. the Independent /Guardian writer. She sounds liked a Labour supporter.

    News comes up
    “90% of people report that their cost of living has increased”
    .. Is that news ? .. Has there ever been a report saying people say their cost of living is falling ?

    Clip from “Disabled People Against Cuts”

    ADVERTS : seems every 10 minutes there is a BBC advert for the BBC Make A Difference awards.

      10% not bothered include 650 MPS on a £2.2K pay rise!


    • StewGreen says:

      To me it’ still an issue of “an MP SEEMED to be watching porn”
      co we don’t know what specifically he watching
      It could have been Channel4, or deceptive email someone had sent him etc.
      Probably likely he’d jut switched hi phone on and the old webpage was still there, cos he’d forgotten to close it after legally watching porn in private.
