    I came across a Spectator Pod Cast in their American series , which I think will be behind a paywall, from April 4 th 2022 in which Freddie Gray of the Spectator interviews a Trump campaigner Liz Harrington. If anyone could post a link I would be grateful.
    Freddie is a fully paid up member of the journalist friends of the globalist elite and it shows.
    Liz Harrington had him spluttering at times as she asserted , with plenty of supporting facts, that the election was stolen , that the polls were rigged in the months preceding the election , that the judiciary daren’t examine what really happened because they know what they will find and it will cause great turmoil and that the MSM were complicit from the start.
    She believes if Trump decides to run in 2024 he will walk it and that the opportunities for vote rigging will be much reduced this time round.
    Freddy seemed quite unable to counter anything that she said . It was almost as if he had never heard these arguments before. But as Liz said the MSM just suppresses the truth and it’s quite possible that being a fully paid up lickspittle globalist journalist he had never heard them put so cogently and forcefully.
    Sadly despite this interview Freddy has maintained his Orange Man Bad pro globalist stance in recent months. He might be on Klaus Schwabs Christmas card list.

    Much as I wish Lineker would be headhunted by LBC or somesuch tribe I can’t help thinking that the descending wrath for his juvenile joke is somewhat over the top…as usual in things like this…though Lineker is often the one pouring such pious scorn upon supposed ‘offenders’….so payback maybe….

    ‘The sports broadcaster said in a now deleted tweet, ‘the Lionesses have only gone and done it, and Kelly is England’s heroine, bra none’ beneath an image of matchwinner Chloe Kelly.

    One twitter user said: ‘You’ve reduced a truly game changing moment for women and girls into a puerile sexist joke. Do you comment when male players take their shirts off? Is it any wonder people don’t take the women’s game seriously.”

    8pm BBC4 Pakistan Unveiled
    Episode 1 of 3 Treasures of the Indus
    “This is the story of the Indian subcontinent told through the treasures of three very different people, places and dynasties that have shaped the modern Indian world.

    All too often, Pakistan is portrayed as a country of bombs, beards and burkhas.
    The view of it as a monolithic Muslim state is even embodied in the name of the country, ‘the Islamic Republic of Pakistan’.
    Yet, as Sona Datta (a curator at the British Museum), shows, it used to be the meeting point for many different faiths from around the world and has an intriguing multicultural past

    She started with the 2500BC city of Harappa*
    Then Taxila a legendary city
    which Alexander the Great and the Greek rebuilt a the city of Sirkap in 350BC full of Buddhist stuff

    * She held miniature Mother fertility figurines from Harappa and said they were super common
    Neolithic Greece had the same super simplistic mother goddess figurines. at the same time
    She never mentioned that.

    “Buddhism emanated from this part of Pakistan to China ”
    .. that seems a strange idea cos the Buddhas homeland on the border of India and Nepal is much closer to China

      Didn’t mention the total number, only that “….100’s had been taken to Ramsgate”. Seems they just cannot take any more at Dover after nearly 500 arrived on Saturday.

      Never mind, Priti is getting ready to pay the French more mega millions to stop the crossings so that should solve the problem.

    LOL x Million

    You couldn’t make it up.

    The BBC has spent the tournament telling us black girls don’t feel represented by white girl footballers and white foorballers fail to inspire them to take up football themselves.

    Suddenly…..all change….

    ‘For nine-year-old Beau Dulay-Bowskill who was standing at Trafalgar Square’s fountain, “this team is everything”.

    “I cannot believe that England actually won it,” she said.

    Beau, her dad Kieron Bowskill, and older sister Jaya Dulay-Bowskill, were jumping around in their local pub in Barnet when England scored the winning goal.

    She now says she will consider joining a local football team like her older sister, Jaya, who plays for the Barnet Nightingales. ‘

    And guess what colour they are? The BBC trying to attach some of that glory to Blacks and to make sure they’re kept in the game so to speak…

    _126161117_whatsappimage2022-08-01at1.43.54pm.jpg

    Soooooooo…..still making it about race but this time they’re back to the normal…putting black people front and centre of a story and plastering their faces all over it….clearly some sort of message there to somebody when by virtue of demographics the vast majority of such fans will be white….but the BBC can always, somehow, find the exceptions.

    Amazing no? One minute telling Blacks they are being oppressed by The System once again, the BBC stirring up anger, division and hate…and then the truth….of course, black girls want to play football, and play for England, and indeed, despite what the BBC tells us, actually do play in the England team.

    Funny huh? Or not at all funny really as the BBC plays with fire.

    Belfield case : the court is not sitting today
    Over the weekend I had a thought
    why did the BBC never go to court previously to get a Restraining order ?
    If the story really is what they say it is, then why wait all these year and have a huge case ?
    just go to the court and get a restraining order

    I checked Twitter and I see a writer already made this point

    AB’s point seems to be that the BBC’ real motive is to get rid of him and that’s why they went for this sledgehammer

    Al-Qaeda leader dies in US drone strike – reports
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-62387167

    Al-Qaeda are a designated terrorist group yet the BBC completely fail the state this extremely important fact anywhere in the article.

    Just as they never Hamas state are an offically designated terrorist group either.

    It I know is 100% deliberate because they have guidelines not to use the word ‘terrorist’ against Muslim’s in reports because ‘one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter’.

    This cannot be read any other way other than the BBC support Islamic terrorism. Which – considering their employment and political makeup – is probably true.

    I also think the reason is not that they are Muslim’s but that the people who usually complain about the terrible things Muslim’s do tend to be right-wing. So the Left/BBC portray them as victims to use as political weapons. They don’t care one bit how many people get murdered : the agenda is everything.

Now we are party to endless interviews of little girls wanting to be footballers, and enquiries for club joining is up 500%. Give it 3 months and it’ll be the end of the fad and onto the next one.

    The BBC opened a HYS about the grain shipments from Ukraine and the comments are just unbelievable. People are being whipped up into a frenzy by the propaganda to something like the Nazis did against the Jews. I wonder if any Russians in the UK have been abused : I’m pretty sure the BBC would not report it now even if they were.

    I added this comment:
    ‘I see all the cries of ‘war crime’ have suddenly been dropped and the argument morphed to something else.

    Russia started a war with Ukraine for more reasons than the BBC have told you. Now the West are waging war against Russia with Ukraine just aiming where they are told and pulling the trigger.

    WW3 has already started. People who only use the BBC for news are too gullible to realise it.’

    It was deleted very, very quickly as ‘off topic’. And this is 1am UK time.

    Blonde streaks, blue wave edition

    Ladies day in the media again today, as the papers try to push one story on and on through the first week of August – traditionally the summer holiday period being what’s known in the trade as a slow news time of year.

    Dancing queens Lionesses party with fans a day after Euro 2022 (free advertising sheet Metro)

    The Times is anxious to force some new news line to keep this one on the boil: Johnson in holiday snub to Lionesses. Leading sports figures have criticised Downing Street’s decision not to hold a reception for England’s Lionesses – just think of the column filler photo ops going begging. Has Boris, failing to read the media room, made another boob?

    The Express is thinking along similar lines: Let’s celebrate… Lionesses to be honoured with gongs.

    There’s a whiff of corporate opportunity: Game changer. Victory spurs business goals… Ipsos research showed 64 per cent of football fans were now more interested in watching the women’s game which is set to benefit from better sponsorships and broadcast fees (Financial Times)

    And there’s always narratives to push: A win for every overlooked and patronised woman (Guardian)

    Our BBC, unsurprisingly, has most narrative bases covered, ticking many agenda boxes: How much do women footballers get paid?; Euro 2022: Five things that held women back in football; Chloe Kelly: England winger’s celebration praised for empowering women… In revealing a sports bra by taking her shirt off and swinging it around her head in delight, the Manchester City winger created a moment which has united and empowered women.

    Reach plc titles Daily Express and Daily Star gift us a souvenir pull out explicit in its title: Girl Power

    How can one not be reminded of that quintessential 90s manufactured girl band the Spice Girls – one moment you’d never even heard of them, the next every chap had a favourite. And there’s the problem with these Lionesses – and our BBC, quite rightly, put their finger on this this – it is that they all look alike, there’s not enough diversity. They’re all lookie-likey blonde high-lighted, identi-kit, off-the-shelf amazonian sport-maidens. Where’s the ginger?

    Oddly enough, the Guardian of all titles, takes a leaf out of the tabloid pull-out supplimental book: Euro 2022. Inside your free souvenir 16-page suppliment – one hadn’t expected a mulit-page souvenir suppliment from that organ until a Labour-led Green/LibDem/SNP coalition or until Brexit was reversed.

    The Daily Mail tentatively attempts to draw some vaguely anti-woke lesson: ‘In an age where women’s very existence is being denied, this glorious show of bold feminity can change the world’ by Julie Burchill.

    More ladies day news as the Telegraph throws in its lot with the female blue frock-wearing candidate – apparenly now favourite to blue rinse the former chancellor chappie: The Daily Telegraph Backs Truss – just as another dodgy Tory MP comes out to back her campaign: Truss is the candidate of hope, declares Mordaunt – pretty Penny you’ll recall being the Tory recently revealed to be more woke than a barn owl at three in the morning: Why does Penny Mordaunt hate Dad’s Army? … In her 2021 book Greater: Britain After The Storm she reveals that she hates Dad’s Army and the other sitcoms written by Jimmy Perry and David Croft… [She dismisses] It Ain’t Half Hot Mum as “a full-house bingo card of… casual racism, homophobia, white privilege, colonialism, transphobia, bullying, misogyny and sexual harassment”. (UnHerd)

    I don’t know about “hope”… I’d vote for Bob Hope… with his legendary supposed gag about California and gay rights… and how he was getting out before they made it compulsory.

    But don’t worry, Maggie mark two, the rubbish sequel (or was that Theresa May?) is the great conservative hope: Liz: I’ll halt junk food tax (Daily Mail); Truss to cut civil servant pay in poorer areas as part of war on ‘Whitehall waste’ (FT)

    Meanwhile as Liz Truss putatively tinkers around the edges the Davos-inspired juggernaut lumbers on unabated with or without a sitting PM: Existing wind turbines may get 20m taller (Telegraph)

    More females making the news: Pelosi’s Taiwan visit to go ahead (Telegraph)

    Let’s be magnanimous in victory. Spare a thought for the Germans – they’re having quite a time of it lately: German retail sales suffer record plunge (FT); Inquiry details Deutsche rule-breaking (FT)

    So bbc it is painful.

    Of course illustrated by an image of a BBC weather map showing Gary Lineker cooking on a BBQ of £50 notes in Qatar.

    Interesting also that the caption changes between social post and pure propaganda pitch for more money.

    Not Ella though, but ‘BBC News Climate and Science reporter Ella Hambly contributed to this report.’

    When she next investigates Helmand trajectory SMG bullet paths will be awesome.

    Oddly, for once I am in a glimmer of agreement if perhaps not for the reasons BBC Crisis hope.

    It only makes sense to look forward to allow for contingencies and prepare using resources available.

    Certainly more than Ella, Taylor, Dame Emma and every doofus thick climate rapporteur in the UN or HoL to scoot off to Cairo when it’s nice in winter to ‘discuss’ crippling Western economies to the tune of trillions to not have any effect on that blazing orb’s tweaks to the seasons.

      About us (UK Home Office)

      The first duty of the government is to keep citizens safe and the country secure. The Home Office has been at the front line of this endeavour since 1782. As such, the Home Office plays a fundamental role in the security and economic prosperity of the United Kingdom.

        IMHO
        Our incompetent government’s failure to defend our borders has placed the people of Great Britain in serious danger from acts of terror by an ‘army’ that crosses the Chanel unstopped , now almost on a daily basis .
        How many of these criminals languishing in 4 Star hotels are former Taliban , Isis or Al-Qaeda? Far too many for the Security Forces to deal with. I suspect many have already absconded and disappeared into the populous.

    The BBC’s poopa-scoopa in action again as it scoops up the political dregs rejected by the voters but whom field a worldview that reflects the BBC’s own and thus find a cosy retirement home within the incestuous bowels of the BBC.

    Anyway….Rory Stewart…who’d have thought the BBC would have embraced him so warmly and taken him in as one of their own so that he can continue to spread his particular brand of Tory Wet inane ‘goodthink’…who’d a thunk?

    Tuned in to R4 this morning and wished I hadn’t…it’s a bit like waterboarding…only perhaps worse….a deluge of soggy wet Stewart sagacity passed onto us on tablets of stone by the new priesthood.

    If only we could all just get along together the world would be so lovely.

    The problem is that damnable social media [lol…such a BBC meme]…the world has gone to rack and ruin…such division, such polarisation, such hate…never before has the world been so divided….and all due to social media.

    Thank heavens for people like Ash Sarkar with her wisdom, her insightful perceptions and her rational and humane ideas of how to save humanity from itself. Yeah, yeah, she’s literally a Communist and they’ve done more than any other ‘ism to set the world ablaze, tear peoples apart and kill millions upon millions…but hey, no-one’s perfect….and the BBC loves her….the ideal ideologue to unite the world….with that good old Internationalism perhaps?

    Naturally social media is the fallguy here…creating echo chambers and bubbling cesspits of closed minds….though hang on….in days of yore people read one newspaper, one that reflected their views….echo chamber? One religion…echo chamber? Not forgetting a very limited TV option…you got what was one view from them….and the BBC, nearly all the Media, are of a like-mindset…echo chamber?

    Social media has in fact done more to open up debate and provide new perspectives and new information that had previously been the jealously guarded preserve of the elite, so-called….and that’s the problem…they just don’t like you having this information which challenges the worldview that they want to impose upon you….that’s the real reason the likes of the BBC and so many politicians try to corral and rein in social media…they don’t like the democratisation of information…information being power.

    Stewart’s little programme is just part of the BBC’s constant drumbeat attacking social media which it sees as the big problem….the one that created Brexit, Trump and Boris.

    No surprise that Stewart lamented polarisation and extremism…for example, he says, Bolsonaro, Trump, Modi and…Brexit. Oh hang on….he’s just reading off the standard, very tired, dog-eared old BBC script…what a surprise….just what does the BBC see in Rory Stewart that so enthused them to offer him a job?

    Whilst Ash Sarkar was there to provide a balanced, calm insight, just ignore her adherence to a genocidal, murderous cult, Nigel Farage was wheeled in as an example of Far-Right hate-mongering….my god! He wants to limit immigration!!! Naturally it doesn’t matter how well you defend your position and justify it perfectly the smell always sticks…and that’s the point of the ‘some people might say you’re a Fascist…what do you say…you’re not are you…are you?’ type question…it’s not actually to provide you with a chance to defend yourself, the real intent is to try and associate Fascism[or whatever…racism] with that person in listeners’ minds in future….mud sticks.

    No irony that this programme was itself pure ‘echo chamber’ promoting as it did every BBC meme, belief and worldview.

    If we didn’t have social media we perhaps would be the oppressed victims of one view, one ideology, one mindset with the forces of the State on hand to suppress any who dare dissent and think for themselves….erm…which is pretty much the road we are on as the BBC tries to shut down social media and the police arrest people for offending someone and the government wheels in draconian laws to curb freespeech.

    Don’t let the BBC take your freedoms with its ‘information purifcation’ programming….it’s ‘garden of pure ideology’ with Rory Stewart et al as the Alan Titchmarsh of propaganda propagation.

    Might makes right or Might is right is an aphorism on the origin of morality, with both descriptive and prescriptive senses.

    Descriptively, it asserts that a society’s view of right and wrong is determined by those in power, with a meaning similar to “History is written by the victors”. That is, although all people have their personal ideas of the good, only those strong enough to overcome obstacles and enemies can put their ideas into effect, and spread their own standards to society at large. Montague defined kratocracy or kraterocracy (from the Greek κρατερός krateros, meaning “strong”) as a government based on coercive power, by those strong enough to seize control through physical violence or demagogic manipulation.[1]

      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 Slammed for Allowing Its 50/50 Male and Female Quota ‘to be Filled by Transgender Guests.’ The British Broadcasting Corporation is facing backlash after claims they are allowing its 50/50 male and female target quota to be filled by transgender guests. The 50:50 project was founded with the aim to increase the number of women on screen. .
    GB News report

    Of course the BBC value women so highly they never gave them EQUAL pay to men until challenged in the high courts. And its the BBC that fully supported the TAVISTOCK sex change clinic that was closed down this week due to it handing out ‘sweeties’ which were puberty blockers to anyone that asked for one.

    It reminds me of Jimmy Saville handing out sweets for sexual ‘favors’ at the BBC. Whilst BBC staff thought it was perfectly OK to abuse children and minors, if you don’t get found out.

    Tavistock Trans Clinic Prescribed Puberty Blockers to Kids After One Meeting
    More on that here.

    Oh yes! The BBC love transverters! Particularly children from (Rotherham) mentally scarred, (dope) drug dependency, (privates removed) fresh eunuchs(!). Get it ALL (and more) on CBBC sex changers. After six months of BBC queer brainwashing any child (watching BBC children’s TV) would no doubt have lost the will to live, and be -confused – about who they are and where they come from. BBC make TRANS the ‘aspiration’ for children wishing to become TV presenters. Equal pay for TRANS! Get your TV Trans license (only £175 per year). Harmless fun! Safe! Make (Lots) of new friends! Be a boy for a day! BBC ‘likes’ boys.

    Expect it isn’t.A US report claims the Puberty blockers being used (by TAVISTOCK) leads to early death and brain seizures.***

    The Times read

    Even The Times admit that ‘queer-theory’ is a dangerous theory now proved wrong. The BBC may of left STONEWALL, but Stonewall exists because its the BBC who sponsored it as public charity (via BBC Children In Need) and then claimed its a success for ‘diversity’. Its a constant source of inspiration of the BBC to re-invent sex changers as an exciting new (progressive) experience and constant employment at the BBC. Don’t just go Gay!, change your sex! Perverts at the BBC have done it all. You can trust the BBC as vital as the NHS TAVISTOCK clinic. As a previous Director General said of his terrific corporate organ defending his glorious BBC Charter to defraud, abuse children and employ the perverted.

    The TAVISTOCK was closed due to this report from the US. The UK was forced to close it despite the BBC and STONEWALL promoting it as an ‘ideal’ experience for children and adults.

    ***FDA Officials Warn of Brain Swelling, Vision Loss in Minors Using Puberty Blockers. Puberty blockers, known as gonadotropin-releasing hormone substances, received a warning from U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials earlier this month, saying the drug could cause brain swelling, loss of vision, and serious risks for children injecting the hormone. .

    They are now 11 cos one has Covid
    They will be sitting from 10am-2pm for the next days until they reach a decision
    And then Belfield will be called back to court
