    TOADY Watch #2 – cue bitter former leaders of the Conservative Party
    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #1 – as above

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/ Item 1 says it all!


    • JohnC says:

      Just scrolling through the BBC’s ‘Live’ blog which they like these days because they can just keep changing the headline on the main story. They only ever use it for their agenda.

      Here’s what I saw as I scrolled through:

      ‘The damage is severe and the PM should go – Hague’

      Rayner (hypocrite): People who lost relatives to Covid won’t move on

      Top Tory rebel accepts result – but ‘with huge caveats’ (the new ‘BBC darling’ remainer Tobias Ellwood).

      Time for Johnson to leave – Hague again

      The gig is up for the prime minister, says Tory MP

      Johnson fatally wounded says Labour shadow minister

      SNP’s Ian Blackford ‘stunned’ by result

      Conservatives have ignored the British public – Starmer

      SNP criticises ‘lame duck prime minister’

      Tory MPs now fully responsible for PM’s behaviour – Lib Dems

      Very bad indeed for Johnson – MP

      When four in ten of your MPs want you out, you have a problem

      As more MP’s voted FOR him than against, where are the quotes from them ?. There are none. The story here is that Johnson WON the vote by a fairly large margin.

      This is outrageous bias by the BBC and they have been pushing the line for months. It makes OFCOM into a complete joke.

      I used to read Hagues column in the DT before they went woke. On every single topic he wrote about, he was completely at odds with the general public.

      The comments made very entertaining reading. I presume Willy didn’t read them because he clearly wasn’t too embarassed to come back and do it again next week.


      • taffman says:

        I am afraid “he’s toast” as they say, and so will the government be if they don’t fulfil the promises that they made before and after the last general election. The writing is on the wall.
        I am sure that there are some ambitious Tory MPs that can do that job just waiting in the wings but they don’t want to show their cards yet .
        As for the BBC ? Have a word , (or two) with Nadine.
        As for the Dover ‘landings’ ? Have a word with Priti .


        • JohnC says:

          Well, I’m not so sure. It’s been a witchhunt nearly as viscious as the ones they laid on Trump and I’m sure they all know it. They just jumped from one reason to another when the last one failed to remove him.

          The lovely Dana (who went into politics after she became not so lovely) said that in showbusinesses, if you are down people try to help. In politics, they stamp on you.

          Don’t get me wrong : I’m not a fan of Boris but I really hope he clings on for now because the BBC are going to fight tooth and nail to get the man they want in instead. And OFCOM will let them do it.


          • taffman says:

            “Witch hunt”?
            As I posted earlier on this site , he was the engineer of his own demise.
            Not securing our borders .
            Not cutting income tax – the opposite.
            Not getting Brexit done .
            Not securing our excellent fishing grounds.
            Not sorting out the BBC etc, etc, etc.

            The Tory MPs are using the threat of Liebour winning the next General Election . Well, there are other parties about ie, The Reform Party and Richard Tice .
            Just cast your minds back when the threat of The Brexit Party and Nigel Farage put fear of God in the Tory MPs to get Brexit done.
            It could be done again at the next by election in Wakefield bi-election ? Nothing but promises and promises .
            I suspect that there are many Tory MPs up north that are worried , very worried about their jobs .


            • Up2snuff says:

              taffman, no, not for those reasons was the PM “the engineer of his own demise” it was because he was not bright enough, sharp enough, to realise that Whitehall and parts of the MSM were working against him, personally, and against the Conservative Party in Government, generally, because of Brexit.

              The PM was too dim, too thick, to realise everyone now has mobile phones that record sound, take still pictures and can also film, and if you agree to Civil Service or SAGE suggestions of a lockdown, and then have something that breaks those lockdown rules then people will take images, record sound, or film proceedings and then leak them to the press.


              • taffman says:

                Too dim then to be a Prime Minister of Great Britain ?


                • Up2snuff says:

                  Boris requires an organiser, taffman. His hair is an indication of what his brain is doing. Similarly, when he often speaks it is a hesitant jumble tumbling from his mouth. Another indication of what is going on in Bojo’s brain. He had an organiser in Dominic Cummings, with Lee Cain – from his time as London Mayor – as back-up. What happened with Cain & Cummings to drive them out of No.10 is not truly known. It is said to be Carrie Antoinette’s doing but I suspect Whitehall may have been involved.

                  There lies the nub of the problem – Whitehall. Aided and abetted by some bits of the MSM.

                  It is time for Conservative Party MPs and also for those who normally vote Conservative not to cease being critical – by critical examination, you do things better – but to swing in with support for the Party in Government. If they do not, Tony Blairdom and another EU Referendum beckons.


      • StewGreen says:

        Our local radio news was similar to the live blog
        The tone was that it i sad that Boris won the vote
        the Labour PR aspects were ramped up .. we got a clip of Labour MP Karl bully-boy Turner
        .. And a new vox pop which suddenly seemed 100% anti-Boris ..in contrast to all the other Vox pops


  2. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    Coming soon.
    The parliamentary enquiry into Boris and his misleading or lies to parliament means we go through it all again with the bbbc leading the calls to get Boris sacked.

    Then there’s the by elections where poor results (in fact the result doesn’t even matter as the bbbc will spin it as bad for Boris) means here we go again with the bbbc leading the get Boris sacked charge.

    Regarding his win yesterday.
    I would like to hope it’s a wake up call to him and that he will become a Tory like the one we thought we were getting before he got carrie’d away with his lefty/green crap.


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      He had his chance to be a conservative PM. With an 80 seat majority he could do what he liked. Well, it is clear that what he liked was Net Zero, Big Government and High Taxes. Thanks for nothing, BoJo. You are not a Conservative, and you never were.

    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.




    • JohnC says:

      That’s great. I wonder what their lie was because they don’t say.

      ‘The final content of any guidance we provide to programme teams will be determined independently by the BBC’

      So that will be independent people from within the same BBC ?.


  4. Thoughtful says:

    Go to about 5 minutes in to skip the preamble an interesting piece on how and why the EV demands of the Left are simply unachievable – if that is the EV is the real demand and not simply a pretext to get poorer drivers off the road.


    • Doublethinker says:

      What exactly is the globalist agenda?
      I think it’s the following:

      1. Create a unified autocratic world government which they control and doesn’t have or need any democratic demos.
      2. Sell their wares and services across the unified world.
      3. To enable no 2 they will redistribute the wealth of the West to the third world . Of course while you get poorer the globalists get richer.
      4. They know that sooner or later the proles in the West will realise what is happening and begin to resist. So to cope with this anticipated push back they are implementing a social credit system which requires that the state must know everything you do, everything you buy, everywhere you go, everything you say or post or watch on line .

      All of this is happening now.


      • Thoughtful says:

        They know natural resources are dwindling and they want them for themselves. EVs force plebs off the road meaning less traffic, more resources for them

        This is what it’s all about preservation of the remaining fossil fuels for their private jets yachts and cars.
        It’s about them preserving their lifestyles whilst surpressing the proles and preventing them getting above their stations.


      • Up2snuff says:

        Double, you are describing globalism. Globalism and Globalisation are two different aspects of economics, two very different things.


    • theisland says:

      If you are moderately intelligent and have a degree of common sense but at the same time are a ‘corporate tool beholden to the oligarchs’ then you are morally more reprehensible than a stupid person who just goes along with it all. Not that it makes much difference to the end result. The main common factor is greed, but cowardice and fear also play a part.

      Which of our politicians, civil servants, institutions etc. fit into which category?
      Where do BJ and Starmer fit for example?


  5. Terminal Moraine says:

    Home page: “‘Call to action’ to be anti-racist by 2030 – Welsh government”

    (Since when did a post of Minister for Social Justice exist?)

    Prof Uzo Iwobi of Race Council Cymru says “for the first time, we are looking at the lived experiences of ethnic minority communities”. Six different areas are up for action, including “the experience of a lack of visible role models in positions of power”.

    I’ve also suffered deeply from this for years, and it’s getting worse. But I suspect my lived experience won’t get a promo piece on the BBC homepage.



    • JohnC says:


      Put a black person in charge of taking action on racism and they will claim it is everywhere. None of it anti-white.

      I say that the majority of racial discrimination the average person in the UK experiences is anti-white – such as on TV advertisements, in the programs, on the BBC etc etc etc. Where is their social justice ?.

      But that silent majority doesn’t matter because they don’t make noise like Mrs Iwobi.


      • Doublethinker says:

        How long before white people are required by the state to attend re education classes aimed at irradicating their white Privelege and forcing them to admit white guilt. This will inevitably be followed by large reparations payments to the oppressed third world and all BAMES. Just part of the wealth redistribution programme of the WEF et al.


  6. Eddy Booth says:

    New UK centre will help fight information war

    “UK officials say it will help develop expertise outside government, including in publicly available information.
    This is proving vital in combating Russian disinformation over Ukraine.

    But concerns are also being raised about the government’s current “fragmented” use of this type of open-source intelligence.

    There has been a widespread view that Moscow enjoyed the upper hand in using technology to fight an “information war” in recent years.

    The West appeared to be on the back foot since Russia weaponised social media to influence public opinion, most famously using fake accounts in the 2016 US presidential election.”

    The whole article reads like one of those politically correct written job adverts.

    Fake accounts in the 2016 election?
    That old interference chestnut 😄

    Russia’s disinformation over Ukraine?
    Looks to me like their biggest weapon is saying hardly anything, whilst they’re enemies spout off 24/7.

    “One official told the authors that even though 35% of intelligence comes from open source..
    government analysts sometimes unable to access open-source information because of regulatory and technical constraints.”
    🦧 Whatever.


    • tomo says:

      “publicly available information” eh?

      I suspect the BBC will be doing their bit….

      Measuring and understanding all audiences’ attitudes and media choices across the ever changing competitive set, across all of the UK, certainly costs money, but is vital to ensure that the BBC delivers value to all licence fee paying households.”

      So the BBC is out to tender for four-year contracts. The biggest is the “Continuous Tracking Studies Research” – “integrating behavioural (use and consumption) and perception (experience / satisfaction) and applying a leading edge of technological development in data collection and processing and brand tracking studies.

      Total value of £42,100,000.”


  7. Sluff says:

    I see that Jermaine Jenas, former footballer but crucially now a BBC football pundit, and One Show presenter, is being prosecuted for using his phone illegally while driving.
    If he is convicted, may we assume he will be summarily sacked by the BBC?
    After all, they do have a long track record in expecting certain Tory leaders to step down for the crime of drinking and eating in their own home. Seems to me that driving convictions which imply creating a hazard to others are far more serious.

    Just a thought. I await the outcome with great interest.


  8. Sluff says:

    How cretinous is this?
    An Indian official has caused upset to a host of Muslim countries after making remarks about the Prophet Muhammed deemed offensive.

    But here’s the bit that bangs to rights the supposedly ‘impartial’ BBC. I quote.

    ‘The BBC is not repeating Ms Sharma’s remarks as they are offensive in nature’

    But how can I know how offensive they are?
    They may be completely inoffensive to me.

    The BBC. Where the truth reported to the majority is less important than not offending Muslims, who the last time I checked still make up a minority in this country.



    • Thoughtful says:

      The Prophet Mohammed? I woudl say the false prophet or the Muslim prophet.

      Don’t forget all you need to become a Muslim is to acknowledge there is only on God (Allah) and that Mohammed is his prophet.

      You’re halfway there if you acknowledge he was a prophet !


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      I believe the remarks related to the true facts that mohamed “married” a child of 6 and had sex with her when she was 9. By any modern standard he was a paedophile. By the standards of the 6th century he was a paedophile. Pointing this out “offends” muslims. Sorry guys, you will have to be offended, because this is a fact, attested to by the muslim hadiths. Sorry if you don’t like it, but don’t kill the messenger. No really, don’t!


      • harry142857 says:

        I read that also, but now the internet thought police have removed all trace.
        Now all of the Arab states are threatening India and urging a boycott of goods.
        The medieval death cult of peace.


      • Ian Rushlow says:

        Strictly speaking they are not ‘true facts’, they are stories and reports contained in the Hadith and the Sunnah. There is a lot of common gound but no unaminous agreement by Muslims as to their contents, in much the same way as events involving the life of Jesus are reported differently within the four canonical gospels of the New Testament. Nevertheless, there is a great deal of discomfort by many Muslims over the concept of Aisha being six years old when she was married to a man who was 53 – it’s not necessarily a great piece of PR for the religion and its founder. Somewhat ironically, while many Muslims are up in arms about this being publicised to a wider audience (there are other factors), the Left and the Big Tech censors in the West are busy trying to legalise paedophilia…


        • Rob in Cheshire says:


          I am not sure that the man called “mohammed” really existed, or if he did, he did all the things he is meant to have done. I have a few problems about him flying on a winged horse to Jerusalem, for instance.

          However, muslims have to accept he did exist, and that allah decided to reveal all to him in a cave. They also have to accept his life story, in which he killed Jews, murdered anyone who stood up to him, and had sex with a child. If any of this was made up, it was made up by people who called themselves muslims and followed his teachings, such as they were.

          I am sorry that one of the world’s major religions seems to have been founded by a guy who deserved to be doing life in a supermax, but there’s nothing I can do to change that.

    The bBc has clearly spotted that under Boris recently there has been a drift from core (C)onservative values…

    They have exploited this to the full through their extraordinary over sized and over manned output mechanisms.

    People like Dimbelby ( we,re out, fame) and his remainer ilk must be working overtime…..and what a better veil than this concocted PartyGate to disguise the true agenda Brexit.

    Over to you Ms Dorries with the mid term review….the bBc has yet again shown it requires substantial ” right sizing”…

    Time to tell mr Tim Davie to prepare for privatisation….full steam ahead,

    • Thoughtful says:

      It’s just not good enough a cowardly useless incomptent Tory bleating about BBC bias when his party with a massive majority has utterly failed to do anything meaningful about it despite being in power for over a decade.

      Never mind the BBC not going to let it drop why have this useless excuse of a political party allowed them to get into this state and to carry on in this state.

      There is nobody to blame here but the Socialist Tories for doing yet again absolutely nothing about a problem they clearly recognise.


    • Fedup2 says:

      So rare to see someone take them on – notice how quick to interrupt him – she sees herself as an opponent – not a journo –

      Please tories – either take them on – or do not engage at all – there is nothing to be gained with them ….


    • Up2snuff says:

      Lee Anderson. Good for him! It is time for good men and women to come to the aid of the Party and the country.


      • Fedup2 says:

        I Checked – there are 359 MPs badged as conservative . Where is their courage to take on the MSM /BBC ? Why do they just accept the current practices of the taxpayer funded broadcaster?

        The BBC cannot be immune from challenge for any longer . Is it just cowardice ? Political or social pressure ?ignorance ? The whole swamp arrangement ?

        I don’t get it . The comment made by Lee Anderson yesterday was so unusual that it received wide ranging comment .

        This shows just how bad things are . There was a lot of discussion about this on GBNews yesterday – as well as the political ground now where there is only liberal representation and there is no Right Wing – in Any form …
        After covid – it’s a big one party state ….with dissenters such as the chap described as a ‘nazi’ yesterday getting over 8 years inside for his troubles ….


  12. Thoughtful says:

    EU leaders doing what they always do, recognising a future problem is going to arise and hit them, speaking about the problem and warning people it’s going to happen, and then doing absolutely nothing to prepare or prevent the problem they already knew was coming !


    I believe that this is part of Putins grand plan, to displace millions of Africans and Arabs to a continent he knows the leaders are liberal decadent and weak, and the poopulation complacent and stupid.

    Once the millions move to Europe he cuts the gas and the oil and Europe is finished and forced to surrender.

    If readers recall he’s already tried this in Belarus with migrants trying to cross into Poland and leftist loons supported Putin in his aims. This Autumn it’s going to be for real and we lack the leaders who will put a stop to it.


  13. Flotsam says:

    Boris confidence vote. How big a factor was Brexit?

    Anyone any idea how many of those that voted nay could have been Remainers?


    • Thoughtful says:

      It’s a falsified allegation by Boris supporting loons like Dan Wooton, without any foundation, because there were plenty of people who wanted Boris gone because he failed utter to get anything susbstantive done especially on Brexit.

      Nigel Farage wants to see Boris gone and I don’t think he could be described as a remainer! David Davis was vocal in his criticism, as I have been from the start of his period in office so it’s a red herring.

      Stop looking for something that isn’t there! There is a real threat from the Jeremy Hunt camp, a man who would cause serious civil unrest if he was to lead the Tories, and there are remainers waiting in the wings, but this was categorically NOT a remainer plot to oust a Brexiteer – unless of course you believe Nigel Farage is a remainer ?


      • Fedup2 says:

        It’s a remainer weapon – a series of steps I have described to get the UK back into the EU – I favour a ‘detail ‘ PM rather than ‘mr toad ‘ with no principle s or attention to detail –
        The luck and the bluster and the ‘common touch ‘ is running out ….he will be under closer inspection due to the sniffing …


  14. Square-Eyed says:

    “Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude towards change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future.” Saul Alinsky, quoted in “BBC: Brainwashing Britain?” by David Sedgwick, p 20.

    If you think I’ve only just started reading the book, you’d be right, but it promises to be a very informative and useful read.

    Acknowledgements to those who have already plugged it in these web pages, but I wanted to add my two penn’orth. Brace yourselves for more quotes to follow.

    “Eco-preachers Harry and Meghan are accused of ‘enormous hypocrisy’ for taking £160K flight back from Jubilee to LA in ‘Russian Oligarch-style’ private jet for people ‘who don’t care’ about the planet

    Harry and Meghan have been accused of ‘hypocrisy’ for flying back to California in gas-spewing private jet
    Eco-preaching Duke and Duchess of Sussex flew on Bombardier Global 6000 before Sunday’s pageant
    The flight will have resulted in ten times more carbon being emitted than a commercial flight, experts say

  18. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    I caught the news on bbbc radio newcastle and the first item pointed out that 4 out of 10 Tory mp’s do not support Boris.

    Second item was snp’s Ian Blackford saying Boris has to go.

    Third item was remainer William Hague saying Boris has to go.

    Fourth item was local labour mp Bridget Phillipson saying Boris has to go.

    All the time reminding everyone that the Tories can change the time of the next confidence vote to 3 months.
    Fifth item, Airport chaos and then other normal news.

    This is the ‘impartial’ bbc.

    Why does Boris just lie back and take it all. Has he no fight in him.

    In other news, Southgate going on about England fans behaving themselves. It’s really about boo’ing when they grovel on their knees just before kick off.
    How many of the team are kneeling because they will lose their place if they don’t kneel.
    I bet lots of them are against this but dare not do anything about it because those with the power over them can end their England career.
    How many will not even be considered if they disagree with the pathetic virtue signalling.

    The lefties control all the levers of power.
    They will take some shifting.


    • Fedup2 says:

      I think PMQs on Wednesday will be a blast – they’ll need a defibulater close to Blackford in case he finally blows a fuse from confected indignation .

    • Changethebbc says:

      The reason that the BBC and FA get away with this behaviour is that people who believe in the UK and freedom blame the “lefties”.

      The “Lefties” are not the problem. It is the globalists. Globalists come from both the old “left” and “right”.

      Globalists include Richard Branson, Tony Blair, Tory Remainers, most of the Labour Party, Ken Clarke, the European Movement etc.

      Their key international leaders are George Soros, the Rockefeller and Ford Foundations and all of the International Banks and Multinational Corporations.

      Believe it or not, they financed Black Lives Matter (See https://pol-check.blogspot.com/2020/07/black-lives-matter-history-of-movement.html ) and the Campaign for a Second Referendum ( https://www.dailyglobe.co.uk/comment/who-is-paying-for-remain-and-peoples-vote-the-european-movement-open-britain-ltd-and-best-for-britain/ ) . They demand free movement of labour, goods and finance across national borders.

      It is true that the Trotskyists and International Socialists are also globalists and can be used for demonstrations etc. but it is the globalist philosophy that you, I and most other contributors to this site are actually opposing.

      The BBC are fanatical globalists which is why they get right up our noses. They believe that people should be able to move from anywhere to anywhere and that global government is just a matter of time.

      If we keep sniping at “leftists” people like the BBC will rightly deny that they are on the left. The battle is not “left”/”right” it is internationalist/nationalist and corporate/individual.

    I don’t share his extreme ideology, but this guy appears to have got eight years in prison for doing nothing or planning nothing.


  20. Zephir says:

    “‘Vile and wicked’ Asian grooming gang who sexually abused two girls including one who was forced into sex with 300 men by age 15 are jailed for a total of more than 55 years.”

    The sickening abuse took place between 1995 and 2011 in Huddersfield and the girls were aged just 13 and 14 when they fell victim to the vile gang.

    The first victim was introduced to older men by a school friend and by the time she was 15, had sex with up to 300 men, the jury heard during the trial.

    Social services eventually told the girl’s family that ‘she must love it if she keeps going back’, according to Ms Batty.

    He said the jury in this trial heard evidence of one of the victims going missing and returning home ‘heavily under the influence of alcohol or drugs’, sometimes naked on her lower half and with injuries.

    She was raped by every defendant in this case, often when she was too drunk to be capable of consenting to sexual activity and sometimes with other people present.

    The judge said she was raped by Usman Ali in his car, who was ‘rough and aggressive’ and left her in tears, while Abdul Majid raped her numerous times, often threatening to not take her home unless she had sex with him.

    Judge Marson told Majid: ‘You raped her as the price for taking her home. You repeatedly abused her for your own sexual gratification.’

    The judge said the second victim was regularly plied with drugs and alcohol ‘in order to facilitate the gross sexual abuse by the older men’.

    Ali, 34, of Huddersfield, was jailed for eight years after being found guilty of two offences of rape against one victim.

    Riaz, 43, also of Huddersfield, was sentenced to 15 years after being found guilty of rape and two indecent assaults against one girl and rape against the other.

    Banaras Hussain, 39, of Shipley, was jailed for nine and a half years after being found guilty of raping one of the schoolgirls.

    Abdul Majid, 36, of Huddersfield, was sentenced to 11 years after being found guilty of raping one victim twice.

    A 36-year-old Huddersfield man was sentenced to eight years after being found guilty of rape, while a sixth, 30 and also from Huddersfield, was jailed for four years for raping one of the girls. ”

      We must remember that these were most likely ‘specimen charges’ against the individual defendants, charges that the police concentrated on and had investigated in detail and so found all the evidence for . In all likelihood the defendants were guilty of far more rapes than those that they were charged with and found guilty of. In other words the crimes that this scum were found guilty of was only the tip of the iceberg.

      taffman, to answer your question 5p per litre less than they did but the colossal prices being charged by garages for petrol and diesel – totally unrelated to the oil price – bears VAT @ 20% which means HMTreasury is coining it at present. Rishi Sunak would have been much smarter to have cut VAT on road fuels by the equivalent of 5p per litre, because that reduction in Fuel Duty just never arrived at the pump for drivers to enjoy.

      Begum has been living in Al-Roj Camp in northeast Syria since her UK citizenship was stripped from her in 2019.

    Gareth Southgate “admits” racism fears difficulty in
    choosing penalty takers. Southgate needs to be told that
    taking penalties is not like a BBC drama series where the
    chief of police has to be a black women. Or an advert on
    TV where at least 75 % of married couples have to
    be of mixed race , when the actual figures are less than 1% !
    Just chose the BEST penalty takers Southgate . Honestly
    Gareth you wont be cancelled if the woke brigade say you
    haven’t picked enough ethnic players.
    And while on the subject of the English football team .
    Southgate should tell his players they wont be cancelled if
    they don’t prostrate themselves for the BLM organization.
    If players such as Trent Alexander Arnold wont
    sing the National Anthem. Not picking Arnold because
    of this? Make up your own mind. Let’s just say he
    doesn’t appear to be patriotic. But does one need to be
    to play for England?
    The BBC is not patriotic .

    BBC WEB-SITE Watch #2 – the great plans of the EU like limiting vacuum cleaner power are doomed to fail

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-61720276 Quote: the EU said in its announcement “It would save consumers up to €250m [£213m] a year on unnecessary charger purchases” and cut 11,000 tonnes of waste per year, the EU added. What the EU don’t understand, probably because they don’t talk to industry experts as well as consumers or even think carefully before legislating is that USB-C connectors are very fragile and frequently break. Their vacuum cleaner legislation that saw device power reduced to 600watts was stupid because it might save no electricity if users end up vacuuming for longer each time they use the device.

    I foresee broken USB-C cables discarded in the streets just like facemasks.*

    Cineworld has pulled a film about the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad after outcry from protesters who picketed movie theatres and branded it ‘blasphemous’.

    Hundreds of demonstrators have turned out in Bradford, Bolton, Birmingham and Sheffield to protest venues showing screenings of The Lady of Heaven.

    Cineworld has pulled a film about the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad after outcry from protesters who picketed movie theatres and branded it ‘blasphemous’.

    Hundreds of demonstrators have turned out in Bradford, Bolton, Birmingham and Sheffield to protest venues showing screenings of The Lady of Heaven.

    The movie was released in the UK over the Jubilee weekend but has been pulled by Cineworld from all its branches after it was faced with protesters demanding it was canned. Vue, meanwhile, is still listed as showing the film in a number of its London branches tonight.

    A video from the weekend appears to show a manager at one cinema addressing a crowd confirming the film has been pulled, prompting cries of ‘Allahu Akbar’.

    The movie’s executive producer, Malik Shlibak, called the decision to pull the move ‘unacceptable’ and accused the chain of ‘bowing down to radical extremists’.

    Made in Britain for £12million, the film opens with the invasion of Iraq by ISIS and features a graphic jihadist murder, before telling the story of Lady Fatima, one of the daughters of the founder of Islam.

    Islamic tradition forbids the direct portrayal of religious figures, with previous depictions of prophets leading to protests and even murders amid accusations of blasphemy.

    Director Eli King depicts Fatima as a faceless character, shrouded by a black veil to avoid doing this.

    But protestors have accused the filmmakers of inaccurately depicting religious history and negatively portraying three of Islam’s most important figures.

    Cinemas have seen days of protests from Muslims claiming the new film The Lady of Heaven is ‘blasphemous’. Pictured are protesters outside the Cineworld in Birmingham on Sunday, June 5

    One of the producers on the film, Ashmere previously said he hoped the film would educate audiences.

    Speaking to Deadline last year, he said while it was ‘an emotional film’ it would also be informative for people unfamiliar with the story of Lady Fatima.

    ‘It’s all factually correct, so this is one thing I want to reiterate,’ he said.

    ‘We spent meticulous time on this particular subject. We wanted to make sure we wrapped this up very well.’

    The film’s writer, Sheikh al-Habib is a Kuwaiti Shia scholar based in London.

    He was imprisoned in the Middle Eastern country before being granted asylum in the UK.

    He has previously angered Sunni Muslims by calling Aisha, the third wife of the Prophet Muhammad, ‘an enemy of God’.

    The film’s producer Malik Shlibak described him as ‘a brilliant mind, an intellectual, an academic, a scholar, a historian’.

    The film features former Coronation Street actor Ray Fearon and was shown at the Cannes Film Festival last year, but was only released in the UK for the first time on June 3, this year.

    John Stephenson, who directed the 1999 film Animal Farm and 2004 movie Five Children and It, acted as a creative consultant.

    And other critics have expressed anger that the negative characters were portrayed by black actors, rather than white, which they say ‘stems from the racial bias against darker skinned people’.

    Those who came out to protest screenings on Monday said they were ‘offended’ by the film and the way it illustrated the life of revered religious figures.

    One protester in Bradford, West Yorkshire, said: ‘We are very offended. We have a right not to be insulted.

    ‘You talk about freedom of speech but where does your freedom of speech go when it goes to criticising your policies, when it goes to making critical analysis of your version of history.

    ‘You have no right to tell us our history. We will not let this film go on further.’

    Others carried signs saying: ‘It’s not ok to offend 1.8 billion #handsoffoursuperheroes’ and ‘Stop the screening’, while using megaphones to get across their message.

    In Bolton, the local chairman of the Council of Mosques, Asif Patel, wrote a letter to his local branch of Cineworld, where he called the film ‘blasphemous’.

    He said: ‘You many well be aware of the recently released film ‘Lady of Heaven’ which has caused much distress to Muslims across the globe.

    ‘It is underpinned with a sectarian ideology and is blasphemous in nature to the Muslim community.

    ‘It grossly disrespects the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in many ways and is deeply disturbing to every Muslim.

    ‘It also misrepresents orthodox historical narratives and disrespects the most esteemed individuals of Islamic history.

    ‘The storyline begs the question to what extent the producers had considered the huge impact of this film upon the Muslim community and notions of sacredness dearly held by them.’

    ‘In Bolton, we are a very diverse community and are very respectful of each other’s culture and honour on community cohesion.’

    A spokesperson from the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) called for ‘respectful dialogue’ between protesters and the film supporters.

    They said: ‘The MCB, which proudly represents affiliates from across the different schools of thought in our faith, supports those scholars and leaders who are advocating for greater unity and for the common good, as commanded by our Holy Prophet (peace be upon him).

    ‘The MCB has always advocated for respectful dialogue of intra-faith relations.

    ‘There are some – including many of this film’s supporters or those engaging in sectarianism in their response – whose primary goal is to fuel hatred.

    ‘We must not let them succeed.’

    But executive producer of the film Mr Shlibak called the decision to pull the film by the cinema chain ‘unacceptable’.

    He said: ‘We think that the protests have brought a lot of new found attention to the film that did not exist before from people who hadn’t heard about the film, and we are okay with the fact that people protest.

    ‘But I believe it’s actually unacceptable in this country what they are calling for – that is the removal from this film from the cinemas due to them being offended.

    ‘That is something quite silly, because everyone has the ability to share their thoughts and enact their freedom of speech.

    ‘I genuinely believe from all sides, from the cinema perhaps from the Muslim Council of Britain, that there is this succumbing and bowing down to these radical extremists and their demands.

    ‘I think this is more than The Lady of Heaven as an individual film, this is about our British values and how much these mean to us.

    ‘These groups have now been given the power to dictate what the British public can and cannot watch at their local cinemas.’

    In a statement Cineworld confirmed it was pulling the film from all venues to ‘ensure the safety’ of staff.

    A spokesperson from Cineworld said: ‘Due to recent incidents related to screenings of ‘The Lady of Heaven’, we have made the decision to cancel upcoming screenings of the film nationwide to ensure the safety of our staff and customers.’

    Executive producer Malik Shlibak, pictured here at the Cannes Film Festival last year, blasted the decision to drop the film
    Vue, which still has screenings for the movie listed on its website, refused to confirm whether the film had been pulled from any of its cinemas.

    A spokesperson for Vue said: ‘Vue takes seriously the responsibilities that come with providing a platform for a wide variety of content and believes in showcasing films of interest to diverse communities across the UK.

    ‘Vue will only show a film once the BBFC (the independent British Board of Film Classification) has assessed and rated a film. The Lady of Heaven has been BBFC accredited and is on show in a number of our cinemas.

    ‘Decisions about how long a film remains on show are taken on a site-by-site basis and based on a variety of commercial and operational factors.’

    He’ll be giving his views on the Boris leadership vote”

    Well on local BBC TV they gave Campbell a full 2 minutes uninterrupted
    “Well Boris is fundamentally dishonest”
    … is that projection from Campbell ?, I’d say so

    After 2 minutes they just cut him off
    there was not much proper challenging of his spiel there.
