  1. G.W.F. says:

    MP resigns after admitting he watched tractors and porn.
    He could have avoided all criticism if he had said he was watching vids of white British girls being sexually abused by members of grooming gangs. The issue would have been instantly dropped.


    • Emmanuel Goldstein says:

      Maybe he was watching PMQ’s with all the Basic Instinct leg stuff going on which sounds a bit randy.


    • vlad says:

      I, for one, have spent the last several hours Googling ‘tractors’ and have yet to find anything remotely arousing – though plenty of memes of Ukrainian tractors towing away Russian tanks.

      Tomorrow I’ll try “babes and tractors”.

        Google search results are not the same for everyone
        The results take into account your own past browsing history.

        On a picture or video search Try typing in … hard bi-election
        … but mistyping “R” instead of L

        Don’t do that search if you are easily shocked.


      • Fred Stubber says:

        He had an interest in Dominator combines.



  2. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    I think just about all of us on here think GB News is a good thing and although it has its faults there are some excellent things (shows?) to watch. Mark Steyn comes to mind with his must watch tv Monday to Thursday.

    So then,
    we now have Talk TV which is on Sky as well as freeview.

    I’ve only watched about an hour in total so I’m new to it but what do others on here who have watched a bit more of it think.
    Is it similar to GBN (impartial) or is it like the rest, left wing.

    I see Richard Tice has a program on tomorrow so I’ve set it to record but I’m not familiar with most of the other names apart from Morgan (a suitable case for treatment)


    • Jeff says:

      They have some reasonably good people on, like Julia Hartley Brewer and (on occasion) I like Mike Graham. He’s a bit of a blustering buffoon, but he interviews Peter Hitchens and the adorable Laura Dodsworth, so he get my attention just for those two. Oh…and Tice can be interesting…

      However, they’ve also given slots to absolute turds like Piers Morgan and the truly revolting Jeremy Kyle. Honestly, I couldn’t have these two vile creatures in my living room, they both make my flesh crawl.

      Morgan is on at the same time as Mark Steyn. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a no contest.

      Others may disagree…

    Reminds me of when Betty Grable dropped by a McDonalds in Stalingrad back in the day.


  5. BRISSLES says:

    So, Mr Lenny Henry is still banging his drum (that started umpteen months ago) that the BBC Newsroom is too white, and maintains that there are very few Raheems amongst the Dave Dee Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich chaps filing copy.

    Funny how he never mentions the colour blocking in our nation’s football teams – there isn’t a fag paper between all the ethnic names, but is there an Andrew ?

    (bit of goss. Talk TV have only been getting around 10,000 viewers, oh dear)


    • StewGreen says:

      TalkTV has been going on for more than a year on YouTube
      cos it’s TalkRadio on video
      See the clips on Youtube

      I used to frequently listen to MikeGraham who is mostly OK
      but occasionally lapses into to be a Tory boy or bullying instead of being polite
      Presenters Mark Dolan, Dan Wootton and a few of the few traditional guests moved over to GBnews

      I rarely listen to JHB now cos although she is good on Green dogma she is extremely nasty about Trump etc.


  6. vlad says:

    The Mosque Attacks You DON’T Hear About on the islamophobic BBC, which doesn’t really care about murdered muslims.


    • theisland says:

      Sunni upon Sunni mosque attacks.
      “We live in a sick world. How about we expose all sources of mosque violence, whether the source is white supremacy, or the commands of Allah?”

      What say you bBC? Don’t they fit the narrative?


  7. Guest Who says:

    The process by which this gets to public view is… sad.

  9. pugnazious says:

    Lol…..there’s a rampant culture of sexism and misogyny in the Tory Party…apparently….and Labour’s Chris Bryant is chomping at the bit to denounce their behaviour…..the same Chris Bryant who was more than happy to indulge in his own sordid activities and flaunt it to the world as he presumably trawled the internet for sex…..



    • Jeff says:

      Pugnazious, please!!!

      That sentence, “Chris Bryant is chomping at the bit…” Eugh! What a truly seedy and horrible little man. What this creature gets up to in his private life is obviously his own affair, but just looking at him gives me the willies.

      I think I’ve just had a Carry On moment.

      Ooh, matron…


      • Bulldog says:

        Reminds me of this old joke:

        Heard about the 2 gay ghosts?

        They put the willies up each other.

        Coat time ……


  10. vlad says:

    Here’s the BBC being extremely sanctimonious and holier-than-thou about the porn MP.

    “What on earth possessed you?”, he asks with a look of uncomprehending disgust on his BBC face.

    The BBC are a bit schizophrenic on this sort of issue. On the one hand hand they love everything ‘edgy’, ‘progressive’, erotic, liberal and permissive; that pushes at the boundary, radical, taboo-shattering, the opposite of puritanical. To them Mary Whitehouse and all she represents is a joke.

    Yet, when it suits them politically, they can be as prudish as any Victorian maiden aunt.

    PS. Talking of porn, I wish the interviewer would do up some of his buttons. Revolting… disgusting… obscene!


    • vlad says:

      “What was going through your mind?”, he keeps asking.

      (Nice pair of jugs, is the probable answer.)

      But doesn’t he sound like an Inquisitor? It’s not enough for the accused to repent, he must be publicly humiliated by our modern day Torquemada, who arrogates to himself the right to peer into the victim’s very soul to extirpate the evil therein.


      • BigBrotherCorporation says:

        From the interviewer’s hand movements, it looks as if he’s describing a particularly attractive pair of mammaries too… unusual for a Beeboid, they usually prefer the anatomy of young males.

        Assuming he wasn’t watching anything illegal, the whole thing is preposterous really, and very British, can you imagine if we were living in France, or Italy… there it would be embarrassing for a politician to be caught watching something in parliament that was NOT porn…

        “Oh oui, I am so very embarrassed, it was actually a video about tractors, with no naked women, and no rumpy pumpy, it is so embarrassing… I immediately resigned, when I realised my error…”

        There is also the point that there is ‘porn’, porn, Porn, and PORN! And it’s not all the same thing at all (as my teenage son likes to claim)…. men (heterosexual ones anyway), like looking at attractive women, it’s instinctive and doesn’t mean we want to rape you(!) Sorry women, but just look at it this way, if we weren’t attracted to you, where do you think babies would come from?

        I’m more concerned about why he had time to watch porn and wasn’t busy working… it’s not as if he wasn’t claiming enough of our taxes.


    • StewGreen says:

      I don’t care about half stories
      I just wish the school bully gang media would get the whole story
      who /what/how long etc.

      I hate wasting time on them speculating on half stories

      Tried it over London. Scary.
      The worst part is that Salford, Manchester would be unaffected, so the BBC would be able to continue pumping out propaganda.


  12. theisland says:


  13. StewGreen says:

    CNN’s Jim Acosta tries a gotcha bluster again Congress woman Marjorie Taylor Green


  14. StewGreen says:

    R4 basically one can assume that each programme is agenda pushing
    Often a member of a special victimhood group pushing an agenda.
    I don’t dislike the people individually
    It’s just the way the BBC present everything disproportionally

    2:45pm Green Agenda : fridge gases “scary scary”
    3-4pm Mixed race writer talks about her life and aired her grievances
    4pm WH Women’s grievances
    5pm The Evan Davies show .. the gay Londoner’s angle I expect
    5:30pm Green Agenda again :Heat Pumps
    Not complete propaganda, but rather soft criticising, like a mother giving an opinion on her own child
    “Are they economic ?” “yes” they said ..adding “well if they are subsidised and gas prices keep going up”
    Doh ..SUBSIDIES are not paid by magic unicorns ..they are unsustainable

    6:15pm the Clive Anderson advertise your show show
    where BBC’s lefty mates plug their stuff, always disproportionately black.

    7pm Profile a Black artist Sonia Boyce OBE ..again a lot of black grievance, supposedly anti-discrimination, but then a lot about black artists getting together all the time.
    “Her main project is a bout black women working in the British music industry”
    “She asked people to name some” “It took about 10 minutes before anyone could name one”
    … That’s implausible ..surely most people can name 10 easily, cos black women are disproportionately high in number in the music industry

    7:15pm Muslim “Nigerian-born poet and playwright Inua Ellams discusses the cultural turning points of his life”
    “Oh when I go to Nigeria people call me white”
    He laughed that prejudice off
    Then spoke about prejudice in UK “people say I don’t fit in, since Brexit there is this rising nationalism”
    .. Seems there he is being kneejerk racist in applying a higher standard to white people than to Nigerians.

    He spoke of confusion over his place here , his family stayed long here but were refused residence . They then broke rules by staying here , instead of going back to Nigeria and putting in the appeal from there.
    So far he has got citizenship but his father and brothers not
    Obviously the NoFiFoPur Office is crap so I don’t know how much was actually his family’s fault.

    That’s 3 profiles of black artists with one day !

    9pm The drama series ..the super long one focussed on corrupt Tories
    11:30pm Anglo-Cypriot poet Anthony Anaxagorou meets Maggie Aderin-Pocock.


    • StewGreen says:

      \\ Ellams was born in Nigeria in 1984 to a Christian mother and a Muslim father, but when he was 12, his father started to question his faith which attracts threats against the family that became so serious that they had to flee the country.
      Once established in England, they were told that all of their documents had been ‘lost in the post’ by their solicitors, who advised moving to Dublin and starting their application again. After threats of violence from “someone calling themselves Sinn Fein” and silence from their lawyers, they moved back to London to find their solicitors’ offices boarded up, so they had to apply to remain all over again. //

      I don’t accept that when people challenge their own Muslim faith in Nigeria, the solution is to bring their family to the UK
      For a start I am sure there are safe areas for these people in Nigeria and neighbouring countries.

      In the Guardian he says “it’s become .. unsafe to be a person of colour with a British passport because the Tories and others in the Home Office have been making it clear to us: ‘We can take this away from you.’.. ”

      “Among Nigerians I’m known as Oyimbo boy – which means foreigner – but I definitely don’t feel British enough,” he says.

    Seeing as many sources are saying that Britain is about to get thoroughly nuked by Russia I thought I could at least send some message of support before the bombs go off.
    I hope you all have a jolly May day before Putin lights the fuse.

    Enjoy your spring festival as in times of yore.


    • Zephir says:

      I just hope no Tory MPs were watching that while standing around waiting to vote…the bbc would be “shocked and stunned” no doubt and wimmins groups would be whingeing as usual.


      • Yasser Dasmibehbi says:

        That clip is wrong on many levels. That’s why I like it.
        The most obvious crime is that it seems to approve of men being attract to men and men to women! We can’t have that nowadays.
        Secondly where are the people of colour? It presents our past as all white people no sign of the legions of Bame around who were building our civilization for us!
        And what about inclusivity? There was no gay kiss! Gosh. That would have to be included if it was made today.
        Finally it was a celebration of an ancient British customs. These are highly offensive to Muslims and along with St George’s Day should be banned!!


  19. Zephir says:

    This should be of major concern to everyone:

    !984 is a bit late:

    Biotech entrepreneur warns what we’re seeing with Twitter is just the ‘tip of the iceberg’

    “One of the things that’s underappreciated is how much these firms coordinate with one another behind the scenes. And this is not price-fixing. This is not the John D. Rockefeller era. This is idea-fixing, which I think is actually even more dangerous for a democracy than price-fixing. And hiding and lurking behind the veil of it all is not just the invisible hand of the free market, as they claim, but the increasingly visible fist of big government itself, where the state, as you pointed out, is coordinating from behind the scenes, the White House is coordinating from behind the scenes on what these companies can and can’t allow on the internet. What does and doesn’t pass the Central Bureau of Information’s test for what counts as everyday people able to consume through the internet.”

    Just watching the latest Angela Rayner interview, a little subdued for her:


  21. Zephir says:

    And, does this surprise anyone ? the depths the left will sink to:

    REVEALED: Conservative Party inquiry finds the source of the Angela Rayner ‘Basic Instinct’ story that triggered a storm at Westminster was… Angela Rayner

    MoS report last week triggered a storm at Westminster after Labour Deputy Leader claimed that the PM’s ‘cheerleaders’ were spreading ‘perverted smears’
    Boris Johnson ordered his whips to find out which Tory MP was quoted in story
    Revelations that Rayner had propagated the story led supporters to try to reframe the row as an indictment of the ‘sexist’ and ‘classist’ culture in the media.

    But within 24 hours of the investigation starting, the whips had spoken to four Tory MPs who testified that Ms Rayner had herself raised the issue with them during an evening on the Commons terrace.

    According to one of the MPs, she told them that during PMQs she liked ‘to do my Sharon Stone trick. I cross and uncross my legs and give him a flash of my ginger g******’.



  22. theisland says:


    39 Illegal immigrants crossed the Channel late Saturday night.
    Despite what mainstream commentators and lying politicians say, the crossings were blocked by the weather, not the Rwanda deal. I did state this numerous times but people refused to listen.
    At 12.30 am, RNLI Lifeboat ferried in 39 illegal immigrants. They were picked up mid-channel after being escorted by the French Coastguard.
    These illegal immigrants will not be flown straight to Rwanda as many people have stated.
    MPs taking credit for the weather and Conservative commentators misleading the public have all been nothing more than an attempt to win seats at the upcoming local elections.
    More crossings will continue from around 6 am on Sunday 1st, with reports from French sources stating that there are hundreds of illegal immigrants waiting to leave the Northern French beaches.
    The Royal Navy, Border Force and RNLI lifeboats will be busy for the next week as the weather is perfect for crossings. At an estimate, I would say close to 3,000.

    Hate speech alive and well on Twitter and allowed when its the vicous, foul left:

    Monstered by Angela Rayner’s online trolls: Mail On Sunday Political Editor GLEN OWEN recounts his week of vile abuse at the hands of the Left’s Twitter warriors

    Within hours of our report about Angela Rayner being published, the Left’s Twitter warriors were in battle mode on social media.

    By late morning, I was trending. A byline picture taken nearly two decades ago became the focus of the cyber-Colosseum; one charmer likened the dimple on my chin to a ‘cat’s a***hole’, while Labour MP Diane Abbott said it was ‘interesting’ that I felt entitled ‘to judge female MPs by their looks’ – something I hadn’t done.

    Other messages were more serious. One post detected a ‘strong rapist energy’ coming from me, while another went to the opposite extreme by suggesting that I was an ‘incel’ – an involuntary celibate. I also apparently had ‘one of those Tory faces that you wouldn’t ever get tired of dropping an anvil on’.

    Even fellow journalists – usually in favour of free expression – waded in. Former Evening Standard journalist Marie Le Conte said on a private Twitter account that was shared with me, that she ‘would be willing to risk my career to call Glen Owen a c*** to his face’. One of her Twitter followers responded by saying people who encountered me should ‘spit at the pig’.

    Tanya Gold, whom I briefly worked with in the late 1990s, falsely reported a misogynistic remark I was supposed to have made at the time. Broadcaster James O’Brien said I had ‘kissed the ring’ of the Prime Minister.



  24. theisland says:

    Is there a Lab/LibDem electoral pact?


    It looks that way. Denied of course (must just be an ‘honest mistake’).


  25. Fedup2 says:

    For some reason the term ‘ginger growler’ was trending on the twitter last night . I couldn’t figure out the connection between some moggy ( I presumed ) and the deputy leader of the Labour Party . Reading the Sunday papers – I think i understand ……
    I wonder what ever happened to the standards of the political class / swamp …..Zephir – just read your post… full page spread maybe …

    Isn’t a growler a kind of ice berg?


  26. Zephir says:

    @F2 there should be an All Party Committee on the subject

    Suggestions welcome, maybe:

    “Committee on the misuse of ginger minges for political advantage”

    Funds received :

    £10,000 from “Razzle Readers’ Wives, Parliament Front Bench Special Edition”

    £5000 from “Shadow Cabinet Saggy Granny Flashers Weekly”

    • Fedup2 says:

      I suspect that now that scum rayner has let the cat of the bag the BBC will switch to ‘ look squiirels ‘..

      But to have such a creature as deputy leader of the Labour party shows how far it has fallen . ..

  30. Yasser Dasmibehbi says:

    While some are still being distracted by Angela Rayner’s… diversion I would like to call attention to the Conservative Party now saying that Fifty percent of their MP’s will be women in future.
    This means quotas. It is one of the most stupid, stupid, stupid ideas around in politics. It is all in relation to a few scandals (especially tractorgate). As if the Tory party can’t weather a few storms with an eighty seat majority for heaven’s sake! But no they have to go full loco. A brainless knee-jerk reaction.
    This will only lower the standard of MPs even further.
    Some unheard of West Country dingbat watches a bit of porn while he should be working and the party has to go super woke!
    Are these people fit to lead the country? Is this a party to have confidence in the future.
    A bit of media pressure and their brains turn to mush. It’s your own damn fault, you oafs! You’ve mollycoddled the BBC for years and let it build into a formidable permanent opposition to your every move.
    I will never vote for any political party that has quotas.
    Everybody with commonsense knows that in general men are much more interested in politics than women. That will always be the case. There are indeed some excellent women in politics but they should on the list by merit. I mean Gordon Bennett! The standards are low enough already. See tractorman.
    To go around dredging up reluctant and inept women simply lowers the standard. It does not advance women in anyway and it won’t help the poor women persuaded to stand against their inner judgement.
    Crikey Dick! All the Tories have to do is look at Labour’s front bench, an unimpressive bunch of talentless women who only know how to whine.
    Is that what the public want to see? Is that a vote winner? Really?


    • BigBrotherCorporation says:

      “This means quotas. It is one of the most stupid, stupid, stupid ideas around in politics.”

      And not just in politics, in many of the places I’ve worked over the last 30 years,, esp. in the (money no problem) public sector – along with ‘positive discrimination for different ethnicities, sexualities, abilities etc…. I STILL don’t understand how ANY form of discrimination can actually be ‘positive’.

      All for the best candidate getting the job, whether male, female, black, white, three legged etc…, but that’s NOT what quotas, or positive discrimination, or selective ‘short lists’ get you… obviously, rather it is, as Yasser says a race to the bottom, talent wise, and just seems to lumber organisations with more useless, but unsackable bodies, often promoted way beyond their abilities to meet quotas at various levels, and paid insane salaries, for jobs their woefully incapable of doing, whilst meddling loudly in everything.

      As a white, hetero male (middle aged too these days, sadly), I’m discriminated against and unpopular everywhere, and know it – no more promotions for me, there are already too many white, males at the top, and no room for any more… but, if I was to start wearing a dress, hells and lipstick? It does put some of the ‘trans’ community in a different light, perhaps more crafty and ambitious than insane?

    Tell me why two females, of reasonable looks, should want to beat each others faces? Can men let alone women really believe this should be considered a sport? Not against Boxing as long as they and that includes men wear head guards. Not doing so is why C Clay/M Ali finished his life they he did physically. Did a bit of boxing at school 1950’s, was strictly controlled however-truly I cannot particularly see the pleasure in watching two women hitting each other – something wrong soemwhere.


    • Jeff says:

      I think it’s one of the most disgusting things I’ve ever heard of.

      I couldn’t watch it, even if you paid me.

      No doubt someone will call me a misogynist because I can’t bear to watch a woman getting beaten up, even if it’s by another woman.

      These are strange times…


      • BigBrotherCorporation says:

        I’m not interested in watching two men beating the crap out of each other, let alone two women, barbaric ‘entertainment’ for the brain dead (and the participants always are too after a few blows to the head) – sorry.

    • Thoughtful says:

      They ran a similar story in the MEN all were young single mothers who had never worked a day in their lives and were pleading poverty with the expectations of getting more taxpayers handouts.

      The other issue is that an idle cowardly useless government should be forcing these layabouts to learn to cook – according to favourite BBC dodgy gender fluid loon Jack Monroe it is absolutely possible to eat cheaply when money is tight, but the reason we see these people talking about heat or eat is because they cannot cook and are ordering take aways every single night.

  36. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    I wholeheartedly welcome Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter.

    The lefties all going potty show that this is a good thing.

    Free speech instead of free speech as long as the left agree but censored when they don’t.

    The reaction this has caused on all the wokies is huge and in Breitbart today they have an article about an eu member saying they don’t want free speech.


    I do hope Musk is taking precautions because it’s now a real possibility that he will be committing suicide or something will appear supposedly from a past indiscretion that will have a negative effect on the coming impartiality of Twitter.

    That’s how they usually do it.

    Paying the subscription for a ‘Charles Atlas’ course when the giftee is bound by a condition that he continues with one arm bound behind his back.

    Give em’ Cruise missiles and level the playing field up. Time Russians had a taste of their own medicine.

    We all know where this issue is inexorably sliding. Right now people are playing footsie to delay the inevitable. It was as if a switch was flicked back in the beginnings of Covid when Governments around the World started taking their authoritarian steps in unison. We’ve been conditioned to expect serious events ever since. WW111? another step on the road.


  40. Fedup2 says:

    I don’t know how we can be conditioned to accept nuclear war – the short and long term effect really is too much to contemplate – I mean – even the fear at the time of Chernobyl was bad enough .

    I fear that putin could be tempted to use such weapons in Eastern Europe in the belief that America will not react similarly because it doesn’t want America harmed – thus effective ending NATO and putting other NATO nuclear powers in a very difficult position . I don’t think either France or the UK would respond if america didn’t .

    We’ve spent decades with ‘wishful thinking ‘ as far as Russia is concerned – but it is a clear real enemy and unless a democrat civilised leader comes along ( unlikely ) it will remain a real enemy ….
    ……….perhaps western governments will need to big increases in military size and spending as it’s the only thing vermin like putin can understand …

      There appears to be a lot of Russophobia amongst some commentators. Still wearing face masks and lining up for the umpteenth jabs?



      • Lucy Pevensey says:

        Collectively, we seem to have forgotten how deeply corrupt Ukraine was until its recent promotion to sainthood.


        • Dickie says:

          Absolutely and western governments do not come up smelling of roses either. We will fight those nasty Ruskies until the last Ukrainian. Give The Ukrainians all our old outdated weapons.
          The military/industrial complex need the dosh from taxpayers to invest in new weapons systems. Bet you won’t find any politicians volunteering for the front lines.

    Now that the dingys are coming again it will test this Rwanda option.

    Will anyone arriving today be put on a plane to Rwanda.
    If not then they will realise it’s all talk but nothing will happen, just like the weekly threat to enact article 16.

    There is NO reason not to put them straight on a plane to Rwanda today.
    Let’s see if they do this or will they find lots of reasons why it cannot be done.

    If they don’t do it then all credibility will be gone and everything will carry on as before.

    Everything is in place to do it.
    We are watching.

    My thoughts are that it will not happen, just like every other promise they made about controlling the hundreds of thousands of enrichers which hasn’t happened.


    • BRISSLES says:

      My least favourite sentence used as a caveat by all those talking about immigration……….. and those who are confronted on the pavements as to their thoughts.

      “we have a proud history of being compassionate and welcoming to those who are genuinely seeking asylum here”.

      I wish I would get accosted one day, my piece would never get to the air waves !!!! Well, I for one am not “proud” – we’re in the state we are today because of the millions – of all cultures and colours, who have been lumped upon us over the years. We wouldn’t have a housing shortage, our NHS wouldn’t be on its knees, knife and drug crime by the usual suspects and those thugs from Eastern Europe wouldn’t be at the levels they are now, and then there is Islam – it would still be a religion that didn’t affect us unduly.


      • BigBrotherCorporation says:

        Why can’t we be more selective in our immigrants, and work to a ‘net zero’ population growth criteria – one in for everyone out, that would seem to be the smart option, given we live on a little, already overcrowded island, that should be seeking to be food and energy independent.

        Any extras that break in without permission should obviously be returned to wherever they came from, immediately, and told if they come back a second time they’ll be flown to the middle of the Atlantic and dropped there in a rubber dinghy with a bottle of water and a packet of biscuits – and mean it! Nothing else seems to be a deterrent.

    The HO has already said that no ‘asylum seekers’ will be sent to Rwanda before 10th May. God only knows why.

    That is after the local elections. We all know the Conservatives are dire, but the country would be unwise to vote for even more Blair 👇


    “On the 25th anniversary of the election of New Labour, we should not be taken in by the desperate attempts of the media and political elites to distance themselves from the same Tony Blair whom they long lauded. They are almost all, in one way or another, Blair’s heirs.”

        GB can be ok, but currently the trend of broadcasters to wheel out other partisans to propagandise for Labour as its credibility implodes further is dire.

        The Kev and Pippa show from a minor extreme tab is beyond credulity, especially now the chat seems pre written.

    The BBC has of course had to at least recognise their people got a press release from her people. However…

    …again without wishing to belittle the Ukrainians being under assault by a hostile invader, it seems strange that the only exterior protective gear in sight is a hi vis. And I am sure that there were journalists there. Casual combat gear day?

        The msm make this less and less comprehensible daily.

        As I understand it the invasion is still progressing, yet Lara Croft and entourage are there to grab a skinny latte while Clive of Helipad, Orla, etc are long moved on to the defence of Keiviv Starmingrad.

        Maybe a snippet about a blonde refugee being mistreated in Bradford.

        All on top of bombs that enter through walls and leave… a hole. Or cruise missiles so accurate they miss a pig sty.
