Midweek 10 August 2022

Trivia – but important to many . The BBC has decided to stop doing the football results on Saturday evenings – a ‘tradition ‘ going back to the 1950s . A ritual for many – but something too big for the schedule ‘according to BBC sport . For those of us looking for any way to diminish and destroy the Far Left Anti British BBC – it is good news . Keep up that self destruction please BBC….

    First

    Apologies, I noticed there was the ‘leave a comment’ and I couldn’t miss the opportunity.

    I cannot remember when I last watched anything on the BBC bar some local news. However as my posts on the last thread indicate, seriously every time I switch on Radio 4, within 2 minutes I have a comment for here and I switch off or go to GBNews on the car radio.

      Not our concern !
      Why should we trouble ourselves with French problems ? They continue to dump illegals and Albanians on our shores and rob us of millions at the same time.
      They are untrustworthy allies , we left the EU in 2016 and they do their best to punish us .
      We need a government with ‘Bottle’ to stand up to them, which the Tories are definitely not .
      Any Tory voters on this site that disagree with me ?

      Repeating this, but from the pre-print blurb of Spring’s new book:

      — “Why do otherwise intelligent people believe that COVID vaccines contain microscopic computer chips? How did the idea that the US election was rigged become mainstream? Is Westminster being run by a shadowy collective of ‘deep-state’ operatives? […] In this gripping book, she takes the reader down the rabbit hole to explore why falsehoods spread and why so many are drawn into their net…”

      1) A Swedish study has found that the mRNA in the Pfizer vaxx does indeed transcribe into DNA in cells (we were told that couldn’t happen)
      2) 2000 Mules has shown evidence the US election was rigged
      3) the PM specifically called out the deep state a few weeks ago

    Not BBC but Ch4 — “The Undeclared War” ticks more boxes than anything I’ve seen in a long time.

    Saara’s won a government internship in cyber-intelligence. She’s young and serious and muslim. 12 mins in, and an employee’s already apologised for GCHQ being “hideously male, pale and stale.” Her white male colleagues are surly and disinterested in aiding her fast-track into cyber stardom. Her only office friend is the young, feisty american black woman — who’s already clashed with the white men for sticking to fuddy-duddy GCHQ protocol.

    Saara’s boyfriend is a wet behind the ears teacher & climate change activist. We can tell he’s out of his depth with the smart, intense, troubled muslim woman. He won’t understand her internal conflicts — the friction between fulfilling traditional familial roles and showing up the stupid white men in GCHQ on a daily basis. We understand though, because we’re forced to.

    She’s so smart and muslim she spots something in the code her colleagues missed, earning her a seat at a COBRA meeting, where she’s singled out for praise in front of the PM and gets a round of applause from all gathered. Not bad going for your first week (usual intern stuff like remembering where the loos are doesn’t seem to apply).

    Saara eats only an apple for lunch because the canteen doesn’t cater for muslims. Mark Rylance plays a codebreaking boffin who brings her a meat-free sandwich. But we see him stumble when trying to articulate his halal gesture, because old white men are unnerved by ‘otherness’. If they’re not fumbling around with code like socially awkward farmhands, they’re bamboozled by cultural difference.

    That’s mostly it. Oh yes, after a non-muslim beer one night Saara ends up in a kiss with american black female chum, who’s a lesbian.

    I’m not sure I’ve got the will to see how it ends.

      So she’s a “Mary Sue,” a term coined in Star Trek fandom in the 70s to describe a character who is to all intents and purposes flawless: The youngest girl ever to graduate from Star Fleet Academy (Star Trek fan fiction was nearly always written by females), excels at all subjects from anthropology to zoology, is universally admired, has one of the Trek “Big Three” (Kirk, Spock, McCoy) fall in love with her, usually dies saving the Enterprise at the end and is mourned by the whole crew.
      Such characters are pretty commonplace these days, usually to demonstrate the superiority of a particular demographic. The only modification seems to be that they often exchange “admiration” for “victimhood.” Examples: Rey in Star Wars, Michael Burnham in Star Trek: Discovery (both girls). Male versions are known as Marty Stu or Gary Stu.

        The first BBC programme I noticed where men were hopeless and had to be rescued by women was the Lord Lynley Investigates. Needless to say the aristocratic white male and stale Lord frequently got in a pickle, or was unable to solve the crime. His small, working class female sidekick Havers was there to rescue him and find the culprit. All we were short of was Havers being played by a short black trans. The message was being laid on with a trowel. From realising the message to stopping watching the series was short. I guess as the message becomes more blatant, it is why BBC viewing figures continue to drop.

      Taffy,
      We know that there are many powerful Dems and RINOs who have participated in highly illegal anti Trump conspiracies over the past six years . If Trump becomes President in 2024 he will make 100% sure that he chooses American patriots who support his MAGA agenda to fill all key positions and then go after the illegal conspirators with everything that he has got. Many of the conspirators won’t escape jail a second time round.
      So they have a very great deal to loose and it wouldn’t surprise me at all that if they can’t find a way to bar Trump from running, they resort to direct physical action against him.
      But even if they can stop Trump , De Santis looks almost as good at this point. We don’t yet know if the swamp can force him to tone down his rhetoric and moderate his agenda , like have done with every other Republican except Trump. But so far so good.
      November looks increasingly like a Red wave and if the Republicans take both Houses the investigations will start and the heat on the conspirators will increase . They will be forced to take action next year.

    “EMPICS
    Image caption,
    The majority of newspapers lead with the worsening cost of living crisis. The Metro carries the stark warning issued by consumer expert Martin Lewis that the rapidly rising cost of energy will be “deadly” for some people struggling financially. The paper says Mr Lewis demanded the “zombie government” of Boris Johnson respond to the spiralling cost of living now, but it also notes the prime minister has confirmed he “will not intervene” before his successor is chosen in September.”

    Not sure what an ’empic’ is, but no doubt a small beeboid will know…

    Wow, our national broadcaster really does have its finger on the pulse, doesn’t it!

    I’m pretty sure that £159.00 in the pockets of the population would be well appreciated during the ‘crisis’…

    We watched “13 Lives” on Amazon Prime last night. It’s
    the true story of the 12 boys and their football
    coach who get caught deep down in a cave in Thailand
    in terrible floods.
    The director is Ron Howard who gave us such films as Apollo 13.and in my opinion it’s as dramatic and thrilling as Apollo 13 and other Howard films. However I doubt even in time it will
    ever be shown on BBC TV. It isn’t “inclusive” enough
    for the BBC.
    I reiterate it’s a true story . So most of the cast are Thai. BUT
    is that inclusive enough for the BBC? I doubt it. You see the
    cave underwater divers who find the boys in the depths of
    the caves are all “whities” from England. So it’s like the England’s
    ladies football team again. The divers are NOT diverse, so far as
    the BBC are concerned . If it was a BBC film I expect somebody with the default ethnicity for
    the BBC,
    would of been the chief diver. The stars we have are
    Viggo Mortensen, Colin Farrel and Joel Edgerton playing
    the lead roles as the divers. And worse still they don’t appear
    to have mixed race marriages. This great film has to be a
    no-no for the BBC for all time. I won’t give you any more
    spoilers . But if you can, watch this great film.

      Yes Apollo 13 movie is far more convincing than the original fake voyage isn’t it? If you think about what they are proposing for one minute you will realise how farcical it is. They claim the skin of the command module was millimeters thick and they wore little protective clothing while leaving Earth’s atmosphere. Really? Can you imagine flying in to a zero gravity environment with no atmosphere and surviving the solar and cosmic radiation that is bombarding you? Take a look at pictures of the lunar module sometime. There is no way anyone went into space stuck inside that thing. And where are those wonderful cameras that can withstand going from -180 degrees C to 180 degrees C in seconds but still work!

Black, black, black and even more black. They are obsessed with blackness. Now with the expectation of that Marxist propaganda continuously filling the air waves to the extent of mania, I wonder how many foreigners now seeking important World News, simply turn off or, don’t turn on.

    One wonders, for a brief fleeting moment, what it might be about the corporate freebie advertiser The Metro that so delights BBC press pickers this morning?

    Then one reads the giveaway’s screamer headline: Wake up zombies! – perfect… this is: Consumer champ Martin Lewis – helpfully drumming home the Labour opposition talking point: Labour attacks ‘zombie government’ as Boris Johnson returns from holiday (Guardian online, Sunday)

    I’ve seen a couple of their movies and the last thing you want to do with zombies is to wake them up.

    BBC online press review choice for top spot errs away from the usual lefty press suspects – perhaps, perforce – because their headlines today go rather soft on the Tories: Truss softens on ‘handouts’ for cost of living (‘i’); Johnson: new PM ‘certain’ to bail out households over cost of living (Guardian); New powers to override City regulators win Truss’s backing (FT) – the full on out and proud Labour-supporting Daily Mirror goes with the Ryan Giggs trial – more of that later…

    There is a certain logic – or so one supposes – in the corporate advertiser Metro’s editorial stance shifting blame for the rising cost of living away from the big corporates and onto government. It’s a toss up which is more to blame… Lockdowns, lack of sensible future energy planning policy, corporate profiteering, duff foreign policy… the big corporates happily collaborated with Lockdowns and despite alarmist campaigners’ accusations big oil is now very much in the tank for expensive so-called green energy – so long as it’s heavily subsidised. Put government and their crony corporations in a sack and I don’t know who I’d pull out first.

    I’ve yet to meet an actaul fan of tennis star Serena Williams – one can however respect her ability in her chosen sport. The media seem to like her. She’s all over the newspaper frontpages this morning. Guardian – cover girl, Financial Times – cover girl, The Times – cover girl (all tennis action shots), Daily Telegraph – cover girl, in glamour pose dressed in long white frock.

    ‘Countdown has begun’ on Williams retirment (Guardian)

    Don’t run away with the notion that this will be the last the media will have to tell us about their Serena: I’m evolving, not retiring (‘i’)

    The last time the Daily Express dipped the Ukrainian flag at their masthead was when the Lionesses won the football and the cross of St George was raised in its stead – despite Emily Thornberry. Today they run down the blue and yellow and raise the old red white and blue Union flag for Liz – no, not our Liz the Second… this is Liz Truss in whom we’re supposed to trust: In Liz we trust – Leo McKinstry writes the Express leader comment: Liz Truss is the right choice for Britain – in a rather brash immodest splash the Express claims: In a dramatic announcement that could help seal her victory in the Tory leadership battle this paper today declares its support for her bid to become out next Prime Minister – her best attributes are apparently nothing to do with policy or conservatism but rather her: strong hand and; cool head – as I recall Rishi had both when he shovelled borrowed cash at every problem, as though he were Jeremy Corbyn’s chancellor.

    Huge relief all round… Matt is back and on form in the Telegraph. He sketches two Eskimos chatting outside their igloo: “Apparently, the British have 27 different swear words for their energy bills”

    Inflation, ladies and gentlemen, is an age old deliberate government policy designed to whittle away State-incurred debt by stealthily taxing the population by the back door.

    Inflation stealth tax of £30bn looms. Money raised from Sunak’s income tax threshold freeze would dwarf NI cut (Telegraph)

    ‘There was NEVER a time he didn’t want sex’ Latest Giggs court claims (Daily Star) – our tabloid court reporters are having a field day with more colourful reports than an edition of The Voice...

    Giggs had eight ‘full on’ affairs, claims his ex lover (Daily Mail) – I’m not sure what constitutes a full on affair?

    Ex-girlfriend tells court ‘Giggs cheated on me with 8 women’ (Daily Mirror) – that seems to clear up that question: She says ‘he looked straight into my eye and headbutted me’ after affairs row – nasty.

      They’re always collapsing – that’s why it’s such good fossil hunting territory, that’s why Mary Anning (the famous ‘lesbian scientist’ with her own statue in Lyme) was so successful at discovering fossils there, that’s why it’s known as the ‘Jurassic Coast’.

      I’ve witnessed a cliff slide more dramatic than that whilst rockpooling in Lyme Bay, it’s a bit unsettling, but the locals laugh if you tell them it’s ‘worrying’, and say it’s a ‘daily occurrence, especially in the winter’. Trying to recall what the weather was like when I saw it happen, think it was autumn (best time for rockpools), and probably quite cool and overcast.

    So here’s my take on the flood of illegal immigrants.
    As an active sailor I understand maritime Law and practicalities of dealing with these boats. It’s illegal to leave people in distress at Sea in any event and anyway, whatever one’s views, I don’t think anyone normal could leave people to die. One idea can be dismissed immediately, could the boats be towed back to France? No. France wouldn’t allow it and more importantly the people in the boats will jump overboard meaning they will have to be picked up anyway. So what can be done? First, anyone without documents should be treated as illegal with no legal recourse, as we all know they throw away their phones and documents if intercepted. The idea of housing them in hotels has to stop. Dare I say it, secure concentration camps should be built in a remote location. The idea of using ships is a good one if they are then used to transport them elsewhere. We need to tackle France and the EU head on. Trade partners? Partners who stab us in the back, front and everywhere else.

        The context is that I’m talking about our rescue boats, not pleasure craft. Under the rules they have to save them. I have to say that although I’m extremely angry with this influx I would feel morally obliged to save people wherever they are from.

        I had thought about designing a rubber boat gobbler. A boat with a two part opening and closing cage designed to scoop up boat and contents and secure them.

    Energy Crisis?

    Lord Marshall head of the CEGB foresaw the problem in 1990.

    I distinctly remember him saying that Nuclear power was intrinsic to British energy security.
    When power generation was privatised, Nuclear was separated from conventional power, “investors” didn’t want it. Marshall was very unhappy about this and resigned. I remember Banks and so-called investors making a windfall from cheap shares.

      I hate to say this, but it’s absolutely meaningless worse still downright misleading and it’s probably done by left wing agitators to attack private enterprise.

      Cost per KWh in Dollars for easy comparison:

      Germany $.341 per Kwh
      UK $ .23 per KWh

      Therefore the German electricity is 50% more expensive than the British.

      What the chart actually shows it that energy in the UK has been incredibly cheap compared to the continent and the price rises have been forced on a highly competetive market are higher than the less competetive neighbours.

      So while it’s true the UKs prices are rising faster, they started from a much much cheaper price !

        Back in the 1980s (iirc) there was a “no pay” local taxes thing in northern Italy (Turin / Milan iirc) – people paid their taxes into an escrow system, transparently administered by “incorruptibles” and payments were made for an assortment of agreed things… putting a huge squeeze on the city councils.

        – the Righty Christians couldn’t put their Wagner festival trips on the council and the Commies couldn’t expense Cuban beach holidays.

        In short … it seemed to work applying pressure to reel in corrupt schemes and municipal self indulgence. The administrators used the interest to buy advert space to promote the scheme.

As with so many crucial issues it’s no good waiting for the government, any government , to act , because they are all part of the liberal globalist establishment and will allow the BBC to lead the societal changes that they themselves desire.

      We have to look after ourselves .Our democracy has been undermined by the establishment and we have been disenfranchised.

    Tuned in last night to R4 and heard them discussing the FBI raid on Trump’s home….the angle was not one of abuse of power and political weaponisation of the FBI but how Trump will be able to ‘exploit’ this to whip up support for his potential 2024 Presidential campaign…..hmmmm…maybe he’s fully justified in ‘exploiting’ what may be a clear abuse of the FBI by the Democrat Party to shut down a political opponent…but the BBC aren’t really interested in that angle.

    The BBC’s Katty Kay illustrates the point as she portrays this in purely ‘Trump exploits his martyr status’ terms….

    ‘The torrent of outrage from Donald Trump’s supporters on Tuesday has been predictable. Of course they were going to vent their fury after FBI agents searched the former president’s home.

    It plays straight into the narrative Mr Trump himself perpetuates that he is a victim of a corrupt establishment. As he likes to say at his rallies, no political leader has ever been treated as badly as he has. In fact, the FBI search Mr Trump has called a “raid” is helping to solidify his campaign of grievances against the state.

    Pro-Trump Republicans are already using it as a way to raise campaign funds for Trump-endorsed candidates.

    They clearly see the operation as a money spinner. It also forces Republicans who have previously voiced differences with the former president to rally around him.’

    The BBC attempted to slam the Supreme Court in the US for its decision on abortion as dangerously political and a threat to democracy and made some overwrought and toxic claims….now however the apparent politicisation of the FBI is not an issue for them.

    Why did the FBI mount a ‘raid’ when they had back on June 8 been at the residence and had not seemed in any way concerned about the documents…..other than to ask for a lock be put on the storeroom door?….as the Mail reveals….

    ‘Monday’s raid is thought likely to be related to the remaining boxes of documents, although it remained unclear why the FBI decided to raid the estate.

    CNN reported on Monday evening that investigators were at Mar-a-Lago on June 8, meeting Trump’s lawyers to discuss the documents.

    Trump was not questioned, the network reported, but stopped by and greeted the investigators and his two attorneys.

    The two attorneys then took the investigators to a basement room and showed them where the documents were stored.

    Five days later, Trump’s attorneys received a letter asking them to enhance the security on the store room, and a padlock was then placed on the door.

    It’s unclear why the FBI then decided to raid the property.

    ‘Something has happened and they are no longer confident that those records are safe,’ said Shawn Wu, a former federal prosecutor. ‘

    So what changed? Why do the raid? A raid that had to be approved by the Attorney General.

    The BBC finally gets to the angle….but only in a very neutral way and the story does not hit the BBC frontpage despite it being a major story….there is no ‘analysis’ by the BBC’s finest…which is odd as they’re usually very keen to give us their own interpretation of any Trumpian event filled with their unique insights and sneery comments.

    Liz Truss has written an article in the Yorkshire Post …
    She’s also been speaking about her plans to tackle rising energy costs, where she’s backing a *CONTROVERSIAL* method of creating power.
    clip of Truss “We got a shortage of supply of energy.
    We need to get on with that.
    We need to to get more gas out of the North Sea.
    We need to look at fracking in parts of the country that support that in parts of the country that support that” .. (audio suddenly cut off)

    Newsreader “Well no permissions have ever been granted for drilling for shale gas, in East Yorkshire, ‘though it had been permitted, not too far away from *us* at a site in Rydale at Kirby Misperton
    where there was a long standoff between protesters and a company that wanted to drill.
    The practise is currently effectively banned, because of *earthquake* fears.
    Ministers and energy company buses are to hold talks tomorrow, with pressure growing for more to be done with the rising cost of living

      ..the other candidate Liz Truss has ”
      (That is the same opening as last time)

      “The other candidate Liz Truss has been talking up her Yorkshire credentials via an article she has written in the Yorkshire Post.
      … she talked about levelling up ..
      … she has also talked about Northern powerhouse rail …
      … now she has also been talking today about plans to tackle rising energy costs,

          If you really want to understand the Germ theory fraud you have to back in history to Pasteur and Koch. It has always been used as a political tool to control the masses and implement depopulation when required. This time around is no different. The polio virus does not exist. The only damage is caused by the toxins they inject into you. There’s plenty of evidence Polio was caused by DDT and other poisonous chemicals in the outbreak in the US in the 1950s. Elsewhere in Africa, it is caused by Gates and his henchmen when they kill and maim millions all for profits. This guy is a complete psychopath. The new ‘polio’ outbreak is another fraud driven by fraudulent PCR assays that of course detect nothing but fragments of genetic material that exist in every human. They have never isolated SARS-CoV2 and they never will because it does not exist. There are 1.5 million Euros to be had for anyone who can demonstrate it does.

    I’ve just been watching yesterday’s edition of Brazier on GB News . The segment about the FBI raid on Trump’s home was interesting. Brazier had Delingpole and an American on separate interviews. Both told him it was a highly politicised action by the Democrats and their clients in the FBI. Both said it was yet another example of the Deep State/ swamp at work. Brazier wasn’t convinced that the deep state exists in the US and certain that it doesn’t exist over here.
    On many issues I agree with the line that Brazier takes and respect the courage he shows on tackling issues the MSM will not. But on this he has his head buried deep in the sand. The last six years has demonstrated conclusively that the deep state has been subverting democracy in the US . The list of examples is well known to everyone on this site and needs no repetition.
    Over here in the UK what else but deep state resistance has threatened Brexit since even before Trump was even elected? How else do you explain the refusal of the civil service to implement government policies it doesn’t agree with. How else do you explain why ‘thought crimes’ are at the top of the police agenda. How else do you explain the cover ups and looking the other way over the mass rape of thousands of young girls. Why can’t we deport invaders who arrive illegally. Once again there are many well known examples of our democracy being undermined by unelected members of a cabal , an establishment, which imposes its will on us and ignores our democratic decisions?
    I’m afraid Mr Brazier if you can’t see that it’s because you don’t want to see it

      ‘Brazier wasn’t convinced that the deep state exists in the US and certain that it doesn’t exist over here.’

      Part of the problem is that the term ‘deep state’ implies something conspiratorial and mysterious and that tends to discredit any conversation, whereas we are really just talking about the standard, ordinary state or Establishment. In other words, the ongoing components which make up Great Britain Ltd or USA Inc, of which the current government is just one, transient aspect. For instance, the military, the security services, the civil service, the treasury, the propaganda arm and so on. These components provide the continuity of a country.

      By way of illustration, think of a school. A new head may be appointed and the teachers may change. But the overall institution of the school, its purpose, the classrooms, the playing fields, the library and so on remain intact. They may remain unchanged for years, only altering slightly and on generational timescales. In this example, the head and the teachers represent the government, the school represents the state.

Additionally they have become activists for their politics and use the power invested in them by the state to pursue their own agenda not that set by the democratically elected politicians unless the politics of the elected government coincides with theirs.
        That is what I mean when I refer to them by the following labels, deep state, blob, or swamp.

    BBC News going hot on climate change as it paints a dramatic picture of Europe ablaze stitching together every bit of film of fields burning and homes alight that it could find to create this sensational and alarming narrative telling us how climate change has ‘supercharged’ the fires…and, of course….this is the ‘new normal’.

    Really?

    ‘Action rather than reports is needed to tackle healthcare inequalities faced by black people in Birmingham, a charity says.

    It follows a report last month which found people from black communities continued to face racism and discrimination when accessing treatment.

    The city’s director of public health said he was “horrified” by the finding.’

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-62265168

    So what are all these discriminations and inequalities suffered by Blacks in the NHS? All the odder because of the very high proportion of NHS staff being Bame….all the more so in Birmingham I’m sure.

    From a previous report….the BBC told us Black woman were discriminated against because, remarkably, NHS staff believed Black women coped with pain better. Hmmmm…trouble was, if you read on, you found that the maternity nurses who allegedly thought this were…Black.

    Then there’s the standard BBC accusation….

    ‘a backdrop of black families often being “ignored and their voices unheard”‘

    …and yet you can hear countless stories, on the BBC, of white people ignored or dismissed by doctors only for their illness to strike them down….only this morning we had a story about a cancer patient not getting treatment…white.

    And of course we have ‘those microaggressions; what are those institutional racism things’

    So…what would they be? No idea…but…

    ‘”We have to think of how can organisations be more anti-racist.”‘

    Yeah, well…not before you actually explain where this racism really exists and don’t just invent stuff as a means of your own racial aggression.

    Listening to GB News a few minutes ago. Though we have not planned for future energy (no gas storage, dependent on Russia and others who may need the gas themselves, no fracking, lack of our own gas production development in N Sea, too late in the day to get Nuclear to help, sun don’t shine and the wind don’t blow much of the year…………….. etc). There is no one to answer why we planned (unplanned) to be in this mess. Make Merkel, Blair, Brown, Cameron, Clegg, May, Johnson explain how they have all f……d up. No chance.

    We will have the same silence to explain the mess when the questions come “why did you allow so many people to over-populate your country with no thought about decaying infrastructure, lack of resources and public services, lack of proper jobs, economic failure (depression possibly), many undesirables who do not see UK as a friend but as an enemy to be exploited”.

      The Mouse,

      Simples, the elite want us to reach the same levels as the Third World and they are achieving that quite well, don’t you think?

        G,
        That is the end goal of the likes of the WEF except they would say that they want to the Third World to reach the same level of wealth as us. Of course that means massive continued wealth transfer from the First World to the Third World coupled with moving hundreds of millions of them into the West. We must become much poorer so they can become richer.
        By the time the populations of the West realise what is going on it will probably be too late to stop it.

          There was never any serious discussion in Britain of any form of population policy before Blair launched his mass migration project. It was not on the political agenda and nobody would take it seriously yet the country was filling up and social cohesion was being threatened back in the sixties.

    Maybe its a test as to how dumb the voter / taxpayer is …

    Blighty is in a mess because dumb assumptions have held sway for decades .

    The globalists have assumed if there is a shortage here they can import it from somewhere else .

    Just stupid , but there is no sign that they are learning any lessons . There is no urgency – just collective sleeping

    Btw
    I heard that inflation is peaking …. From the record store as ‘ inflation is transitory ‘
    2024 at the earliest in my view- 2027 if he does a fuel furlough …

    BBC News has a stairy eyed woman offering advice on how to save water, but she keeps inserting the words, ‘global warming is real’. Wait until we get heavy rain this Winter, it will be ‘climate change is real’.

      G.W.F., wait until we get cold heavy rain (a.k.a. snow) this winter and it will be climate change is real. No-one will be listening however, they will be more concerned with staying warm and well-nourished.

      BTW, snow is good. It doesn’t run off hard, parched, earth and snow melt helps restore the water table. That fact will not stop the BBC producing more scary stories via their non-weather forecasts: “Aaagh, its snowing thousands will die!” Yes, mostly old people who tend to die in winter whatever the weather.

    ITV local NewsPR
    “We’ve shopped around to find the lowest reservoir we can find, and brought our cameras down to scare you”

    “Yorkshire water say their reservoirs have fallen to below 50%
    .. and that’s 20% below the summer normal.”

    That means the summer normal is 61% capacity and its fallen by 20% of that which is 12% of capacity
    .. to 49%

    I’m on the train from Chester to Halifax. I’m passing miles after miles of freshly mowed hay, same as driving along the M62. It looks golden yellow and my mate Phil the farmer has had 2 cuts. This will save them 10s of thousands on feed through the winter. So the brilliant weather up north red hot for a couple of weeks then rain is producing amazing yields.
    Obviously the South East based BBC can’t see the benefits and neither I suggest do they want to.
    So natural hay next winter none of that synthetic muck they would have to produce if we had wet summers.
    And whilst I’m at I think we all know that this winter will be the coldest in a long long time…….it just has to be.

    I wonder what the BBC weather charts are going to look like if we have a cold winter. Dark ink blue with big white Mr freeze lightning streaks and big ice chunks covering Scotland? Any temperatures over zero miraculously dark blue? Seems like climate change also changes map colours.
    As a side note, I misspelt map and the only spellchecker offering was Mao.

    Owami Davies: New CCTV footage released by police
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-62495983

    This girl had been missing for more than a month and the BBC didn’t care until the story suddenly became hot-news a week ago after 3 men were arrested.

    And who will remember some random black woman walking through Londonistan over a month ago ?. Why wait until now to release it ?.

    I can’t help thinking the BBC know those men are white.

    If they aren’t, the story will quickly disappear. We’ve seen it many times by now.

    On GB News Nigel is asking the question “Does Liz Truss look like a prime minister?”

    The answer, as far as I’m concerned, is yes she does.

    Unfortunately, it’s Theresa May…

    Depends what the image of a PM is – is it a president ?CEO ?
    Chair of a committee….?
    Watching the GBNews thing I think she looks less wooden now – but as I’ve said here before – a PM needs to do detail – nut nut never did – as trade sec and foreign sec I thought she was pretty good on the Brief and wasn’t beaten by the sneery socialists . But I’ve got a £2.50 bet on her at 8/1…
