    R4 this morning first listen in months

    1) Anti Brexit lady ( think they said she was Kitty O, Shea?) just about managed to slam Brexit on every conceivable front.

    2) Dominic Raab to get a pasting as bBC go on full scale Get Boris

    3) 2 little bowls – this caught my attention as I thought they said 2 little balls!

    An Oliver type heartstring puller where a little fella produced 2 bowls to his mother ( chestfeeder) saying ” Mum i have got you a bowl as i saw you were not eating”

    Maybe we should just sit back with the popcorn as this lot seem intent on a full steam ahead self destruction mission.

      The item was PRasNews for the new Institute of Directors report

      Kitty Ussher, is a former Labour MP and former Labour treasury minister

    Marky / s Trubble

    As I wrote here before – I would recommend the 1kg own brand porridge from sainsburys which is £1.15 – with full fat milk at 55p a pint …£1.70p together – which I reckon would keep 2 people breakfasted for 2 weeks ?

    Energy use to microwave said breakfast ? 2 minutes 30 at full power – maybe 1penny ? So £1.84 for 2 weeks – total cost
    £ 2.576….. or £5 a month …..

    The TV licence costs …. £12 a month or more …

    Or maybe breakfast has to be more sophisticated ….


    • StewGreen says:

      I reckon you are being generous with the microwave costs
      Porridge here takes 1 min in the 600W microwave (0.6KW)
      Say leccy costs 18p per KWh
      Divide by 60 .. So that’s 0.3p per KW minute
      so 0.6 x 0.3 =0.18p per bowl
      10 days 1.8p , 30 days 5.4p

      Even 1.5 minutes means the porridge overflows the bowl and onto the glass plate.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Stew – ha -ha – I’m so sad I checked on the current price of a microwave – £45 ? From dunelm ? Own brand …

        My point really – is that these emotional propaganda stories deployed by the BBC aimed at making the blue labour government are not quite …. Right … and I think it really is .. vile .. yes vile really … and that drive for a totalitarian benefits state ….

        I reckon the next war will be the ‘benefits cap ‘ …. Deploy that failing football boy – Rashford ….

          Fed I got your point
          Media keep gaslighting us by telling us that things that cost pence
          cost pounds
          mainly cos Guardianland people are not BASED in reality
          They are imagining the costs of the poor rather than actually living them
          Aldi oats are 75p/Kg
          Cowbelle Filtered Whole Pure Milk 2 Litres is £1.35
          Being filtered means it lasts a long time
          though you can always put half in the freezer
          (Aldi cornflakes are 55p per half kilo)

          Anyway who promotes the idea that the story is true
          and that a woman who has 3 jobs finds that the price of breakfast cereals is the ball breaker ??

            @Fed ah my mistake, you said 2 people’s porridge takes 2.5 mins
            Yes about right
            My leccy calculations was for 1 bowl
            So I should double that ..to 11p per month


            • Up2snuff says:

              Stew, if you make the porridge (other spellings are available) on the hob, you have two extra benefits: it will heat a cold kitchen in the morning and any available children will love picking out the hard bits in the bottom of the pan. In fact I would go so far as to state, any available OAP who is young at heart will mobilise his/her inner six year old and a spatula for the crunchy bits at the bottom of the pan. 🙂

      Hello Stew

      I live just outside Birmingham and have seen multiculturism for quiet a few years, i’ve always thought when this also starts to appear in the leafy suburbs then people would start to wake up as to what is going on. Unfortunately the damage is already done and too late to make a change.

      Another example recently is the village of Linton-on-ouse

      Lets face it is it okay for inner cities have all the issues and elsewhere to carryon as normal

      Twenty-four asylum seekers who claimed they were children after being sent to Liverpool were found to be adults, the city’s council has said.

      The authority said another 15 asylum seekers “should have been identified as children” by the government and accommodated in London instead.

      A Home Office spokesman said age-disputed cases remain “a very challenging area”.

      Liverpool City Council wants to recover £657,000 for supporting the children.

      A council document said 39 asylum seekers sent to Liverpool by the Home Office in 2018 “have then claimed they were children”.

      The authority “had to pay for an ‘age assessment’ for each one (costing £1,500 each) that concluded that 15 were children and 24 were adults”.

      We said a government cleaner who worked in Downing Street and had been surrounded by people breaking the rules had contracted Covid and died.

      In fact, he worked at the Ministry of Justice.

      His family was reported to have been told by medical staff that he had died from coronavirus but the post-mortem recorded hypertensive heart disease as the official cause of death.

    BBC News
    Online, 26 October 2021

    While the ECU ruling today rightly confirms the focus of the article was a legitimate area for journalistic scrutiny, it is also a reminder that the precision of our language and the caveats we place around third-party research are very important in our journalism, particularly when covering topics of highly polarised debate. In the light of the ECU ruling, the BBC has now made some amendments to the story to reflect where we got things wrong.

    The BBC will also provide more internal guidance to our news and programme teams on these issues. The final content of any guidance we provide to programme teams will be determined independently by the BBC but we will take into account the breadth of perspectives, internally and externally.

    The BBC can do more to help all our audiences make sense of the current debate around sex, gender and identity. While individual news items tend to scrutinise very specific areas of debate, it’s important for the BBC to find opportunities to step back and help audiences understand the current arguments, and how they are reflected within wider society today, both in the UK and internationally.

        Oh look at his tweet 12:00 PM · Dec 23, 2020·Twitter for iPhone –
        Took delivery of my new Audi, looks nice.

        The “Today” report, which included an interview with “Anthony Oakes”, made no mention of ‘the-cost-of-living-crisis’ – or that Anthony Oakes was a victim of it.

        Up2snuff just made that bit up; because that’s what Up2snuff does.

        And you fell for it; because that’s what you do.


        • StewGreen says:

          Maxi are you sure that the interview was not repeated again in the prog ?
          Sure that time the cost of living crisis was not mentioned inside the item.

          But they do sometimes replay interviews and it is possible that the intro was different a second time.

          It’s also possible that listener mixed to items up

            People on forums like this do sometimes make errors
            and then someone else comes along with new better information.
            but we here make no claim that our comments are perfect

            The BBC on the otherhand, do make great claims that they are super reliable and only report things if they have confirmed them from two different independent sources etc.

    TWatO Watch #1 – the BBC make no pretence now, their sympathies lie with the Hard/Far Left and Communists

    It makes their support for Ukraine rather strange; you would think they would be backing Putin to the hilt. Anyway, the Montacutie ‘is off – again’, I hope for hols and nothing more serious. Sarah makes Laura Kuenssberg (a.k.a. Part-time) and even more so Simon Jack and Faisal Islam, “Who?” “Are we paying him?” look positively hard working.

    As part of the JubbyLee the BBC are trying very hard to rain on HM’s parade so as part of TWatO they are choosing an item from each decade of Her Majesty’s long reign. Yesterday it was a banner from the 1983/84/85 Miners’ Strike. You might think they couldn’t move the goalposts even further to the Left but, yes, today they achieved it with an Irish Harp carved by a terrorist while incarcerated in Long Kesh a.k.a. The Maze in Ulster.

    Despicable, BBC!

    The curator/narrator for this item – one degree of separation there so the BBC can claim “It wasn’t us.” – mentions the total death toll for ‘The Troubles’ (which she claimed was a euphemism – yeah, right!) but she didn’t give a break down between non-combs, UK forces/police and terrorists or where the atrocities took place, ie. Ulster v other parts of the UK. The major bomb attack in the City of London was mentioned, however.

    I think its is fair to say this was a heavily Hard Left/Far Left slanted part of the production for the last two days.


  21. digg says:

    I think the BBC are fully aware of the lengths they go to for political clout. They know they are lying frequently and at best not telling the whole truth.

    This is perfectly aligned with the leftist playbook that anything goes if it supports the cause, even falsehoods. Truth is seen as an irritating distraction from their aims and thus is disposable.

    This is classic Marxist behaviour, rewriting history and events to support their cause.

    It won’t change until there is a root and branch upheaval of biased BBC staff, particularly those younger staff who have only joined the BBC to become activists, spurred on by universities and global one world forces such as Common Purpose.

    It has been literally a Trojan Horse operation. They put glitzy puppets into the day time sop programs such as the Antiques and Cooking farces to try to keep the sheep viewer numbers up but the real ideological dealers keep heads down and off screen pulling the strings and dictating what their viewers consume in the news and current affairs content etc.

    It has been a slow but relentless creep. I would guess there is a much higher percentage of left wing activists working in the BBC than in any other organisation in the UK apart from The Morning Star.

    I guess they think that if they can bring about a pseudo soviet style society, the people will be become voiceless and they will effectively become the untouchable commisars at the top of society.

    It is pathetic that the controllers of this British Institution have subjugated themselves to these people and sold out for a quiet life and rich pickings. (For the time being!).


  22. Skeldings says:

    This morning, while I was getting outside my scrambled eggs on toast, my wife had a BBC programme on – one of those morning magazine programmes – I think it’s called Morning Live.

    Anyway, even though scrambled eggs on toast requires the fullest attention, my eye was caught by an item about the resurgence of the seahorse off the coast of Dorset. Apparently, the little chaps were in decline but numbers are now starting to increase.

    There are a large number of species to which this cycle of decline and reappearance could apply among our seas and woods; but the seahorse is most unusual: the male becomes pregnant (I seem to remember reading that somewhere). The female transfers eggs to the male for him to bear and hatch.

    It intrigued me that of all the species this report could have been about, the BBC chose to highlight one whose practice tends to be most unusual in nature: almost as if they were trying to suggest that our ideas and associations of what constitutes maleness and male behaviour can in some cases be compromised and even inverted.

    They wouldn’t be doing anything like that….would they….?

    650 MPs £2.2K PAYRISE

    Let us never forget this fundamental truth: the State has no source of money other than money which people earn themselves. If the State wishes to spend more it can do so only by borrowing your savings or by taxing you more. It is no good thinking that someone else will pay – that ‘someone else’ is you.

    There is no such thing as public money; there is only taxpayers’ money.


    • Thoughtful says:

      This is of course untrue as the state has several sources of income such as the crown estates. The borrowing is also over such an extended time period that it won’t be you who pays it it will be your grandkids.

      In my lifetime I have had to pay for WWI and I believe we are still paying for WWII meaning the great grandkids of the people who borrowed that money are now having to repay it.

      It might well be regarded as theft to commit a future generation as yet unborn to repaying debt which they had no knowledge of left alone ability to consent to.

    Steyn/ GBNews is truly fearless on the consequences of vaccine injuries and puts the BBC to shame . All their leading ‘talent ‘ – Robinson – can do is go on and on about nut nut and the parties …. Which is nothing – nothing – compared to the grieving relatives of people dead or injured as a result of the vaccine ….

    Unfortunate news for the bbc part two:

    “Britain’s monkeypox outbreak is linked to ‘gay bars, saunas and Grindr’, 86% of cases are in London and just TWO women have caught virus – as total UK infections rise to 196”

    UK today confirmed another six infections, bringing the total since the outbreak began on May 6 to 196
    Health chiefs revealed contact tracing has linked cases with ‘gay bars, saunas and the use of dating apps’
    The findings also detail that nearly 90% of all cases in England were among London residents
    At least 57% of cases are among men who have sex with men, while only two infected people are women



    • Guest Who says:

      Coy, BBC… coy.


      • BigBrotherCorporation says:

        So, these are just random ‘young men in London’ are they?

        Ah “no one factor linking ALL the cases…”, so there are ‘factors’ linking some (perhaps many, or even most?) of the cases, then?

        It’s like some kind of cryptic puzzle or brain teaser, but others are (rightly) being a little less coy. FFS, if gay men are most at risk, then surely THEY need to know that?! And what is gained by trying to scare everyone else?


      • JohnC says:

        I think there might be just ONE factor …

        This article is amusing. It tries very, very hard to tell us it is NOT linked to gay men while having to admit that it is.

        Apparently they think avoiding any stigma is mor eimportant than the actual truth.

        Monkeypox and gay men: Separating stigma from health advice

        With this desperate gem at the end:

        ‘So why are gay men catching it more right now?’

        ‘Dr Prochazka says it’s not clear why there is a higher proportion of cases among gay men.’

        ‘Dr Prochazka says another possibility is that the proactive engagement of gay men with sexual-health services may have led to more cases being diagnosed.’.

        I suspect every single person who catches monkeypox will be straight to the doctor.

        Monkeypox is spreading among gay men worldwide

        As always, the first casualty of a Leftist agenda is truth.

    I was watching some of the Queen’s jubilee coverage today on the BBC and it reminded me of when I was a boy in the early Seventies. I knew The Queen was visiting Greenwich so I walked down to the Cutty Sark near where I lived to see her. There was crowds everywhere. It’s still fresh in my mind. On the Queens Diamond Jubilee I was at Charing Cross Railway station when the Queen was due to drive by on her way to St Pauls Cathedral. I couldn’t get out of the station because of the crowds. The cheering and clapping when the Royal car went past was something I will always remember. I love that The Queen has been there all my life and hopefully for many years to come.
    What a fantastic Queen.


  37. digg says:

    If there’s one thing more nauseating than the BBC being snide about royalty, it’s their “faux” interest in the jubilee. They would rather Elizabeth fell into a vat of acid but they are going through the motions of being “our loved national broadcaster” no doubt their evil ferrets are snuffling around trying to find an anti royal story right now to pour some slime onto the royal family.

    I wish the BBC were given no access to the celebrations and were kept well away from it until it’s over, they disgust me more than I can say!

    Our Queen has been a rock for this Country from before most of the shits at the BBC were born and has never put a foot wrong. Our Queen truly represents our Country, unlike the rotten to the core BBC,

    Of course her children were infected by the new much lower standards that the recent years have ushered in but as an individual she has been magnificent and a shining beacon to the rest of the World about how to hold yourself in complete dignity in public office.

    I hope she outlives all of the sleazy commies at the BBC especially the older ones who think they can engender respect from the new yoof twats entering the organisation by being disrespectful to anything patriotic to the monarchy.


    • markh says:

      Spot on Digg. I’m almost willing the foul corporation to cock it up, like they did with a recent jubilee and the parade of boats along the Thames. I don’t think I can stomach their faux-royalist hypocrisy- is it on ITV instead? And as an aside I see that a main theme of the Jubilee festival in London will be ‘climate change’ – ffs something else to miss.

      They can hate someone without ever knowing them. That is the power of ideology and why they have murdered so many millions throughout history whenever they got ultimate power. And it’s also how a Muslim can go up to someone in the street he never met and hack them to pieces with an axe.

      They both believe the other person deserved it.

      Depp comes out top in defamation case against Heard

      ‘What about Johnny Depp wins defamation vase against Heard’

      They can’t even write a headline which jumps off the page : they have to make it wordy and just a bit unclear so you have to think about it a little to be sure he has actually won.

      Combine with the headline styles of ‘Johnny Depp hit me says Amber Heard as opposed to ‘Johnny Depp claims Amber Heard hit him’ and the result is one spiteful misandrist BBC who does not deserve any license fee.

      They are pathetic children. How far the BBC has fallen …


      • BigBrotherCorporation says:

        I haven’t really been following this (rather tedious) ‘c-leb’ drivel, but I did happen to catch the ‘live from the US courtroom’ result earlier.

        The initial BBC posting was factual and to the point. Then maybe 10 minutes later there was a really bitter little piece that had clearly been written by a man-hating harpy, pretty much a scream of impotent rage, followed some time later by a very toned down (am sure the BBC would claim ‘balanced’) version of the same.

        My impression was the first was a summary of what the judge actually said, the second a furious rant by some anonymous ‘feminist’ BBC C-leb ‘journo’, and the third the polished turd left after some kind of editor had gone over it a few times with a cloth.

        Clearly, I don’t know the two involved personally, and I’m not daft enough to think they’re anything like their ‘on screen’ personas in reality, but my impression is the verdict was the right one.

        Depp is a boring, self-obsessed, old ‘bad boy’ with drug and alcohol problems, who probably snores, farts and likes an afternoon nap (he’s 58 and without all that makeup looks like one of the Rolling Stones, ie 158).

        Heard, is a nasty little, attention seeking, lying b-itch, who probably whines, spends money like water, and apparently poops the bed when she’s drunk and not being kowtowed too, and then considers it hilarious.

        Such a lovely couple.


        • JohnC says:

          The BBC edit their articles a lot as they find the right balance so it sits just on the red-line of how far it is accepted they can go.

          They keep pushing that line a bit then withdrawing quickly if there is backlash. The ‘assigned female gender at birth’ which was changed quickly to ‘woman’ is an excellent example. They are relentless. The agenda is everything to them.


      • JohnC says:

        Good God, the spite of the BBC when they back the losing side (something they do a LOT) never ceases to amaze me.

        The Depp/Heard headline on the front page now reads:

        ‘The actor is awarded $15m – but Heard also wins $2m after …’

        The story is that he won BBC and she was shown up as the nasty liar she is. But like spiteful 10 year olds, you just have to try to stick a knife in somewhere.

        I have a feeling many people like BunnyBoiler Heard work at the BBC.

    Buffalo shooting: Suspect charged with domestic terrorism

    Terorrism: unlawfully using violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

    The domestic terrorism charge filed on Wednesday accuses the suspect of killing “because of the perceived race and/or colour” of his victims.

    Since when does killing someone just because they are black constitute terrorism ?. It’s absolutely ridiculous.

    When black people who kill non-black people because they are not black (especially Asians who they hate), will they be charged with terrorism ?.

    Of course they won’t. It stinks to high heaven and shows the true hate spite of the Leftists. All this does is drive the racist divide the Democrats have caused even deeper.

    It was a hate crime. It’s ridiculous to call it terrorism. They are doing for one reason : the push the narrative of ‘far-Right terrorist’.

    No doubt that particular charge will disappear – but not before the likes of the BBC and CNN have gorged themselves on using it for agenda-based headlines.

    The BBC won’t even called real terrorists as terrorists if they are not white (eg Hamas).

    Of course the BBC give Joe a political plug:

    “What in God’s name do you need an assault weapon for except to kill someone?”

    … errr … some would argue to stop someone else killing you first Joe you senile old idiot. I would want one if I found some armed black guy in my living room.

      Erm, this is from the Buffalo shooter’s M-A-N-I-F-E-S-T-O:

      Why did you decide to carry out the attack?

      To show to the replacers that as long as the White man lives, our land will never be theirs and they will never be safe from us.
      To directly reduce immigration rates to European lands by intimidating and physically removing the replacers themselves.
      To intimidate the replacers already living on our lands to emigrate back to their home countries.
      To agitate the political enemies of my people into action, to cause them to overextend their own hand and experience the eventual and inevitable backlash as a result.
      To incite violence, retaliation and further divide between the European people and the replacers currently occupying European soil…


      • JohnC says:

        Here’s your USA definition of terrorism maxi:

        ‘the unlawful use or threat of violence especially against the state or the public as a politically motivated means of attack or coercion’

        Why have you people NEVER called BLM terrorists then maxi ?.

        Do you accept that Antifa are terrorists ?. Because they fit the description far, far better than a single wacko. Does your database tell you how many of them have been charged with terrorism ?. Or is it just for information to use against your politcial enemies ?.

        You people are shameless racist hypocrites. But what else would we expect from a troll ?.
