Start the Week 13 June 2022

Two aspects of the Fight For Freedom this week –

Happy first birthday to GBNews . The Far Left BBC and rest of the woke media and OFCOM haven’t managed to kill off a bit diversity of thought yet …Free Speech in Britain continues to be suppressed -but at least GBNews offers something a bit different .

And on a more sombre note `Tuesday 14th of June commemorates the 40th anniversary of another fight for freedom – The Falklands War – or as the BBC would prefer to call it – The Malvinas …….

      Further to utterly rigged propaganda masquerading as news, Twitter’s opening page has a stop the flights thing on Rwanda with a departure lounge rammed with fat ladies of color in curtains, babies in slings and a couple of skinny blokes in denim.

      The effect is rather spoiled by every one of them sporting gleaming white designer trainers.

    BBC local news
    “The Archbishop of York has condemned the Rwanda flights”
    Then they played a clip of Dominic Raab justifying them.

    Why did they choose to FRAME the story with “Archbishop says” ?

    #2 M62 roadworks blah blah

    #3 “Councils say rising inflation means they will have to cut services in the winter.”
    (eh that’s a bit obvious )
    but hang on this is all framing so they can say
    #4..”Hull Labour MP says leveling up is happening more in the south than the north”
    clip “…Inflation means .. It’s leveling DOWN for everybody”
    …. Doh her politics automatically means more inflation
    : Crazy Green polices, Covid lockdowns, open borders, payrises mean things COST MORE and therefore the public and the government can buy LESS.

      Doh CCS is a Holy Grail but no one can get it to work economically never mind stopping The chambers from leaking.

    The news headlines… sometimes they act to confirm our priors, to reinforce our prejudices… what I mean is – they may simply tell us things we already regard as being true…

    Stop boring everyone to death, shadow cabinet tells Starmer (Times)

    Sir Lenny Henry has said it is “interesting” to see the apparent lack of black people in the audience at Glastonbury Festival. (BBC) – not particularly interesting, but it is a fact.

    Sturgeon starts new push for independence (Telegraph) – come back to us with new news.

    News headlines can also be something akin to what the youngsters term a “hate-watch” where one derives a certain peasure and source of entertainment from the sheer toe-curling awfulness of what is presented – news editors know this…

    The giveaway Metro editorial panders to what their corporate advertisers envisage to be a notionally young urban liberal diversity-minded audience: Clear for take-off. Asylum seekers set for Rwanda flight as appeal court rejects last ditch challenge – phrased so as to raise the hackles of armchair lefties and perhaps even as a call to action for a hardcore of real world runway-invading protesters? We’ll soon see.

    The Telegraph assumes its audience tend toward Austrian school economics, or at they least reside in a higher tax bracket, so this bulletin should have them spluttering over their cornflakes: No tax cuts before inflation cools off.

    The Telegraph still assumes some degree of residual patriotism in its readership: France ‘incresed fuel imports from Russia’ – and if that doesn’t raise the true blue British blood pressure of a morning by a notch or two, then I really don’t know what will?

    It’s probably not a sound long-term plan to continually rile up your audience too much – one senses the BBC tries it and declining viewer and listenership figures have been the result.

    The alternative is to pander to your base. To cultivate a hardcore of the like-minded within the wider demographic – and sod the rest.

    Chuck them some red meat you just know they will gobble up…

    Church versus Boris Johnson: bishops tell PM Rwanda flight ‘shames UK’ – nevermind that no copy of the ‘i’ newspaper has ever been found anywhere near an actual parish church. The point is that the lefty atheistic aesthetic – more likely to be Gaia-worshiping than C of E attendee – readership has an assumed in-built reflexive antipathy toward Boris and Tories in general and can happily cheer this headline like they were a home football crowd hearing a positive VAR result for their team.

    So too this one for the Daily Mail’s readership: Rwanda flight latest. Court of common sense. To their credit, Judges have THREE TIMES rejected Left-wing activists’ demands to ground migrant flights – and remember folks, the British parliament is supposed to be the sovereign law-maker – so one really has to ask what exactly is the bloody issue here?

    The FT panders to a globalist mindset of “Anywheres” an internationalist world citizenry that would be more comfortable should there be some utopian supranational world order: Brussels threatens legal action on bill to tear up N Ireland protocol

    Likewise the Guardian readers remain in deep mourning post-Brexit and that title is more than happy to chum those waters: EU to fight UK in court over bid to scrap Brexit checks

    As the Mod-father, the Bard of Woking, Paul Weller of The Jam once memorably sang: That’s Entertainment

    And to think you thought you were reading “news” headlines…

    And finally. Speaking of chumming the waters, we sense the Daily Star may have jumped the shark: Scorchio mahem. Hornet red alert from Spanish plume. Fears of 40C European headwave. Get set for an invasion of killer hornets, heatstroke and airport baggage hell.

    Amazing that the bent media isn’t reporting the seismic events on the US stock market yesterday.

    Bitcoin lost 10% and withdrawals from the currency were temporarily suspended.

    The US stock market lost 4% of its value in one days trading, and this might very well be the start of a moment in history when the second great depression hits the Western world.

    https%3A%2F%2Fd6c748xw2pzm8.cloudfront.net%2Fprod%2Fa522e330-eb54-11ec-8470-694a9bd96aee-standard.png?dpr=2&fit=scale-down&quality=medium&source=next&width=500

    You can expect the media not to cover this because it isn’t socialism it’s capitalism, and they will begin to cover it when the effects begin to bite when they will use it to call for even more politics of death and failure.

    They really are beyond the pale, and yet so are the so called Conservatives, who are so inept they can only spend money and are all at sea when it comes to managing an economy going through the downward cycle.

    Lizzo changes derogatory lyric after backlash
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-61794502

    Yet another example of cancel culture being promoted by the BBC. Lizzo changed her lyrics because of a complaint when she used the word “spaz”. A woman with cerebral palsy complained on Twitter with a tweet with just 432 likes.

    The BBC frame the whole article like Lizzo is a brilliant person for listening and learning.

    Something the BBC don’t tell you is their hero black woman’s lyrics were originally “Hold my bag, bitch, hold my bag. Do you see this shit? I’m a spaz”.

    So officially “bitch” and “shit” are still allowed but “spaz” is not. What a messed up world we live in.

      … and on that note – since the Irish won’t build a border to control their single market to Northern Ireland – maybe that ‘common travel area ‘ can be looked at as they mouth off against Blighty on behalf of their masters in Brussels ….

    Afghanistan women’s team: They escaped the Taliban but face uncertain football future
    https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/61744830

    Here we have an example of the BBC ‘lie by repetition’.

    They come up with an excuse to reference an old story then tell the whole thing again as if it just happened with yet another extra-large helping of empathy to draw you in. And in a very lengthy article considering it is just rehashing agenda-based old news.

    Quite why the author (Muslim born in Iran) and the BBC thinks this Leftist political propaganda belongs in the ‘Sports’ section is beyond me. I suspect they are trying to ensare people who don’t bother on the main pages.

    I wonder what life is like for the people still there living in fear under Taliban rule. The BBC clearly thinks these women are much more important.

    15 of the Most Controversial Lines in Hip-Hop History

    Trigger warning: This story contains mentions of rape, homophobia, and racism.

    “So don’t follow me up and down your market/ Or your little chop-suey ass will be a target/ Of the nationwide boycott/ Juice with the people, that’s what the boy got/So pay respect to the Black fist/ Or we`ll burn your store right down to a crisp/ And then we`ll see ya/ Cause you can’t turn the ghetto into Black Korea.”

    “I’m ’bout to dust some cops off/cop killer, better you than me/cop killer, fuck police brutality”

    “Though I can freak, fly, flow, fuck up a f*gg0t/Don’t understand their ways, I ain’t down with gays”

    “Then I’m dippin’ up the block and I’m robbin’ bitches, too/Up the herringbones and bamboos/I wouldn’t give a fuck if you’re pregnant/Give me the baby rings and the #1 Mom pendant”

    “And if you got a daughter older than 15, I’mma rape her/Take her on the living room floor, right there in front of you/Then ask you seriously, what you wanna do?”

      We built this city
      We built this city on rock and roll
      Built this city
      We built this city on rock and roll
      Say you don’t know me or recognize my face
      Say you don’t care who goes to that kind of place
      Knee deep in the hoopla, sinking in your fight
      Too many runaways eating up the night
      Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don’t you remember?
      We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll
      We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

      To be fair it wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for the greenwashing of the tower with cladding. The problem seems to be that all the involved decision making parties didn’t have an ounce of common sense between them. All those low IQ graduates with inferior degrees and no practical real world/life experience. On Radio 5 it was mentioned that the Council had chosen the cheapest cladding material, so what? They were never going to pay more.

    As Ukraine’s struggle against Russia and its proxies continues, Kiev must also contend with a growing problem behind the front lines: far-right vigilantes who are willing to use intimidation and even violence to advance their agendas, and who often do so with the tacit approval of law enforcement agencies.

    You won’t want to miss BBC 6 Music’s “Deep Dive into Queer Country”.

    Worth a look at the bio of the host, queer country expert Dr. Shana Goldin-Perschbacher, which I would bet ticked all the BBC boxes in addition to rubbing them up the right way:

    “Motivated by musical articulations of social justice issues, her explorations of contemporary sonic, visual and social media take shape through critical, ethnographic, analytical, and historical methods. Her book Queer Country, published by the University of Illinois Press in 2022, examines transgender and queer performances of country and Americana music through explorations of sincerity, genre trouble, journey, rurality, misrepresentation, masking, and collaboration.”

      Wow, puts a whole new slant on Hank Williams’s “My Son Calls Another Man Daddy.”

            I recall working with a man whos credibility was questionable to say the least.

            7.30 am he walks in, in Royston, Hertfordshire on a Wednesday morning, and tells me “I’ve just walked past Johnny Cash, he said good morning.

            Yeh, right, I later had a look at Canbridge Corn exchange gigs and guess who was playing that evening.

            I still don’t believe him, Johnny Cash doesn’t know what a morning is, let alone a good one.

              including my Geography teacher “thats me that is shouting at the back”

              no wonder I still struggle with tectonic plates and the capital of Bulgaria

      The best known of China’s ghost cities may be Ordos New Town, also known as Kangbashi, in the region of Inner Mongolia. The city was intended in the early 2000s to eventually house a million people, a number that was later scaled back to 300,000. But as of 2016, a mere 100,000 people lived in it.14 Oct 2021

    Yesterday’s Cadwalladr ruling was confusing at best. While Mrs Justice Steyn ruled the TED Talk Carole Cadwalladr gave was defamatory, she said Banks had failed to prove that its publication caused “serious harm to reputation”. Part of this was based on a belief that Carole’s followers are mainly an #FBPE echo chamber, therefore unlikely to have had their minds changed by the defamatory Russia claim…

    Russia-Ukraine war: Some of UK’s top journalists barred from Russia

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-61796070

    “The BBC’s Clive Myrie, Orla Guerin and Nick Robinson, who have reported from Ukraine, and Director General Tim Davie are on the list of 29 media figures.
    So too are journalists from Sky TV, The Times, Guardian, Channel Four and ITV.

    The British journalists included on the list are involved in deliberate dissemination of false and one-sided information about Russia and events in Ukraine and Donbas,” Russia’s foreign ministry said. “With their biased assessments they also contribute to fuelling Russophobia in British society.”

    Hahaha the more I hear from Russia, the more I like them!

    Thousands of illegal asylum seekers, fugitive criminals, murderers , and rapists, are all queue jumpers and are blocking genuine honest refuges that have waited patiently to get here. Successive weak British Governments have let them down and let us down by putting the people of Great Britain in danger.

    Dear, dear me.

    I no longer post, due to not partaking of the output from the scum BBC. How many here are still paying a licence fee?

    Anyhow, I occasionally dip in to see what the enemy are up to, but today has taken the biscuit in terms of comments, infighting and downright crap being posted.

    I’m surprised the moderator doesn’t delete the vast majority of the utter shite posted with hardly anything devoted to the aims of the site.

    That is all.

    No need to reply as I won’t be checking. Best wishes Fed, you need it.

    Kyiv City Ballet gears up for York performance
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-york-north-yorkshire-61798231

    “Dancers from a Ukrainian ballet company stranded outside the country fear they may never return home, the troupe’s director has said.
    Kyiv City Ballet was in France when Russia invaded and has been unable to go back to the country since.
    They are currently in York, where they are staying for free ahead of a one-off UK show at the city’s Theatre Royal.”

    BBC as usual incapable of asking the obvious question: why can’t they go home?
    Are they scared of being conscripted? If so state that, it’s supposed to be a news outlet.

    “Hotels, businesses and travel companies worked together to feed, house and water the company for free.”

    It’s a wonder there’s any hotel rooms left in Britain for normal guests..
