    Two in a row? Will I get three? Nothing is certain, especially that.

    What is more certain is that the BBC will keep their hatred for former President Trump going. The BBC will keep their man-made Global Warming and Climate Change thing going. They will keep their ‘cost-of-living-crisis’ going and they keep their uncritical support of the Labour Party going.

    It is now week 12 of the BBC’s campaign to get us back into the EU. They have been a bit quiet on that today but I would not be at all surprised if there are not little hints on R4 throughout the week: “the grass is greener when we were in the EU”.

      “Week 12”
      Nope the BBC has been campaigning since the Brexit vote
      That’s 2,242 days ie 320 weeks

        Former Foreign Office official concludes that the civil service has become increasingly politicised in recent years.
        No kidding!!

        My own impression, based on conversations with civil service contacts over the years, is that the damage limitation exercise approach to Brexit has been extended more broadly to containing the ambitions of the current government (despite its huge mandate) until another election brings ‘people we can do business with’ back to the room.

        A purge is urgently required.


        • Doublethinker says:

          I agree that a far reaching purge is required with a hundred or so top mandarins sacked and no pension until reaching retirement age. The standard way of doing things in the private sector if guilty of gross misconduct.
          But I think that politicians have no jurisdiction over the Civil Service and so the purge can never happen. Seriously if the government can’t get the rank and file back to work how can they purge the top ranks ?
          Our system of government has be captured by the left and no matter what democratic mandate we give to a party the only policies which will be implemented are those which the Civil Service agree with. We no longer have any ability to influence the future of our country by casting our votes in favour of particular policies. We have been comprehensively disenfranchised.
          As we can no longer use the ballot box to give or withdraw our consent for particular policies we can either accept rule by the unelected or stand and resist. Knowing how Brits have behaved in recent decades my money is on wide spread acceptance, unless the energy and food runout and then there might be sufficient unhappiness to prompt a push back.


          • Up2snuff says:

            Double, there is a convention in UK politics that Ministers always protect their Civil Servants and take ‘flak’ on their behalf.


      • Up2snuff says:

        Stew that is one view and one shared by our Fed. However, I felt there was a distinct step up in the BBC’s campaign on the last Sunday in May, courtesy of Jonny ‘Disjointed’ Dymond who is as political as the Noxious Naughtie.


    • NCBBC says:

      Each day brings new records of hottest day since 20th August 19xx, or coldest/hottest summer night since 21st August 19xx. And when we have thunderstorms, you can bet the BBC and other loonies will be panicking us that its been the wettest hour since 22nd August 19xx. And so it continues. The aim is the same – to increase taxes and reduce the people to stand in line in front of government mandated agencies for hand-outs.

      Its the totalitarian urge to control people stand in line to get vaccinated or get their dose of proteins, carbohydrates and vitamins.

      It will come, as government eco-fanatics now want to stop farmers producing too much and too cheap food. To that extent they will forcibly evict farmers – for your good naturally.

      May I alter your BBC ‘keep going’ theme? In fact quite the opposite: items of important news our “Worlds Most Trusted Broadcaster” simply don’t want to alert the public to for reasons of not wanting to raise the worst fears of the public.

      Personally, I run the risk of the opprobrium of other contributors here in putting a link in to ‘History Debunked’. Last time I posted a link to HD, I was decried. Anyway, here goes.

      I cannot find this important news published anywhere other that HD. I mean, anywhere.

      “Remember when a riot in central London would have been front-page news?
      Less than 48 hours ago, a riot erupted in London’s West End, with shops being looted and the police standing by helplessly. What would once have been a major incident is theses days just an insignificant item at the end of the news.”

      Just wait until things become really grim in 6/9 months time. Prepare for home invasions.


      • harry142857 says:

        Only two weeks until locals near Notting Hill board up their shops so savages can invade, do a lot of drugs, use local doorways as a toilet, molest girls, and fight and stab each other whilst the police look on helplessly. All in the name of diversihy and communihy.

    Heard on GBNews of a fire near me so wanted to know a bit more. Google led me to twitter where one of the BBC local news readers was messaging someone who had put up photos of the fire. It all seems terribly amateurish to me. Presumably the local BBC reporters spend their time scouring twitter for stories. So a many billion pound news agency gets its photos from twitter.


    • StewGreen says:

      Deb I think it’s routine, I see it on Twitter all the time
      I don’t think it’s amateurish

      I was funny when the Nottingham Online editor screamed at Alex Belfield for using a photo of him they had taken
      Well they had tweeted it
      And they had previously used photos Belfield took, tho they did ask permission at least once.

      And the EU and UK decided that putting sanctions on Russian oil and gas will bankrupt Russia. The contrary happened – Russia is getting richer by the day as energy prices soar, and we get poorer by the day. Ah says the the EU – we must suffer to support Ukraine. By “we” they mean “us” not the EU and UK apparatchiks.

    I’m just tired of being around these people. I hate their music, the way they walk, talk, and dress, their idea of what’s cool and acceptable, their seeming pride in being ignorant, trashy, and low-class, and most of all, their passive-aggressive bigotry towards me. I just want them to go away, I’m tired of them.

    This is the future of ( ̶A̶m̶e̶r̶i̶c̶a̶ ) UK. So brave and gorgeous, daring and magnificent. Thank You Sadiq Khan for our happy childhood!

    “Cowardice of Leftists who fail to defend free speech: The reaction in some quarters to the attempted murder of Salman Rushdie is astonishing, writes Frank Furedi

    The most shocking thing about Friday’s attack on Sir Salman Rushdie is not that it happened in the first place. The author had, after all, spent much of his life with a bounty on his head – a burden he bore with bravery and resilience.

    No, what has astonished me is the reaction in some quarters to the attempted murder of a blameless novelist – especially from the Left.

    Yesterday morning, absurdly, a BBC Radio 4 news bulletin was claiming that ‘no motive has yet been established’ for the crime.

    The website of The Guardian newspaper, equally unwilling to look the facts in the face, was quick to reassure its readers that a motive for the savagery ‘appears to be unclear’.

    Rank absurdity. The attacker’s apparent sympathy for Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard and Shia extremism was by then obvious to anyone with an internet connection.

    Iran’s newspapers, moreover, were in no doubt what to think about it, one saying: ‘A thousand bravos… to the brave and dutiful person who attacked the apostate and evil Salman Rushdie… The hand of the man who tore the neck of God’s enemy must be kissed.’

    But the Left, as ever, seemed unwilling to admit the obvious – even as JK Rowling, was chillingly being told ‘you’re next’ by a Pakistani ‘political activist’ after she dared to express solidarity with her fellow novelist.

    Well, as Winston Churchill is often misquoted saying, up with this I will not put.

    It is time for those of us who believe in free speech, in liberalism and in democracy to stand up and say so.

    Because the world is dividing on clear lines: those who recognise the value of these things, and those who do not.

    The Western world rallied to Rushdie’s defence: Iran and Britain broke off diplomatic relations, and a host of leading cultural and political figures worldwide offered the author private and public support.

    Fast forward to today and how things have changed. ‘Our’ side is in the grip of a climate of intolerance that is growing daily.

    The Left, as I say, are squeamish about stating plainly what the rest of us can see with our own eyes. For too long, they have appeased and pandered to the extremists.

    As recently as 2019, a columnist for the Left-wing Independent newspaper (who also hadn’t read the book) wrote: ‘I wouldn’t have it in my house, out of respect to Muslim people and contempt for Rushdie… I’d be quite inclined to burn it.’

    Indeed, it is hard to imagine Sir Salman’s novel The Satanic Verses being considered for publication now.”

      Agree Zephir, a weakness has been and is being bred into the people of this nation-born in 1942 I was brought up in pretty lean times, nevertheless was expected to respect my parents and older people, expected to offer ladies first, give up my seat on a bus or train to an older woman or a pregnant woman, expected to keep my bedroom tidy, happy to clean anyone’s car for a few bob-school taught us history to appareciate and to have Patriotism for our country good bad or as could be infifferent. So what has gone wrong? Hells bells, where does one begin-well I’m considered too old to have an opinion, no I’m B…..not, shall speak my peace no matter. Seriously it is the young children/grandchildren that will one day inherit this nation, one that will, if the BBC have anyhting to do with it, be totally Multicultural, with a greater exposure of coloured people than white. Could I be wrong?

    Not just a “racist” now, but an “extreme racist”.

    What next, a mega racist, ultra racist or armegeddoracist.

    Comedian Jerry Sadowitz’s show cancelled and staff getting abusive phone calls (good if you ask me, people who booked knew his material, expect the twatterati to pile in)


    Edinburgh Fringe: ‘Extreme’ racism behind Sadowitz scrapping – venue

    An Edinburgh Festival show by controversial comedian Jerry Sadowitz was cancelled for “extreme racism and misogyny”, venue bosses have said.

    The Pleasance axed the second of his two nights at Edinburgh’s International Conference Centre on Saturday.

    Sadowitz, 61, an American-born Scot, is a veteran of the Fringe and known for his provocative stand-up shows.

    The venue said it received an “unprecedented” number of complaints from audience members and staff.

    Sadowitz performed at the 1,300-seat Lennox room at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on Friday. It is understood less than half the tickets were sold..

    The Pleasance said a “large number” of people walked out as they “felt uncomfortable and unsafe to remain in the venue”.

    It declined to give any detail about what material by Sadowitz prompted the complaints.

    However, in a further statement on Sunday, it said: “We became immediately aware of content that was considered, among other things, extreme in its racism, sexism, homophobia and misogyny.

    “We will not associate with content which attacks people’s dignity and the language used on stage was, in our view, completely unacceptable.

    “We received an unprecedented number of complaints that could not be ignored and we had a duty to respond.”

    Pleasance also said that “unacceptable abuse” was directed towards some staff on Saturday from people phoning to criticise the cancellation.

    On Saturday, Sadowitz posted on Twitter that he thought his show “went well” and he did not see any walkouts the night before.

    He wrote: “I’m truly sorry for everyone who travelled to see the show tonight.”

    The Pleasance said refunds were issued to those who bought tickets to the Saturday performance.

    It declined to cover costs for those who had booked travel or accommodation.

    I notice that the BBC are re-running a large feature on their home page on those nice chaps in Afghanistan which they ran last week.


    It is hard to fathom their warm and welcoming attitude to a bunch of blood thirsty vigilantes who have invaded the Country.

    Its almost as if they want to re-educate us into how mistaken our view is on these barbaric, mediaeval animals.

    Today 2

    The BBC busily telling us Blighty should have done more for the feckless Muslims of afgee … but I still don’t understand how this all came about ? Did America have anything to do with it ? Who was the US president involved in the sudden chaotic withdrawal ?

    Listening to the BBC you’d never know …

    They go about afgee being a safe haven for terrorists so we have to be ‘engaged ‘…. But surely there’s no need to go to afgee from that – just go to Luton or Bradford or East Ham or tower hamlets …or …or …for a bit of anti British anti Christian Muslim terrorism …

    Neil Oliver –
    His 10 minute think piece on twitter has hit 1.2 million views ….
    Maybe GBNews has got something …?

    Watching it for a second time – I wonder if what has changed is the realisation of governments – the WEF and the like – that whole populations can be made to be obedient through ‘project fear ‘…
    ..that if we can all be frightened into house arrest over a minor virus – that it can be done for other things – as long as the MSM sings the approved song ..

    Strangling farming – killing fertiliser supply – preventing water storage – buying farming land – and making food more expensive – is just another project fear to manipulate the population – us – into the approved way of thinking and behaving ….
    Project fear is frightening

      It has been interesting to watch Neil’s ‘awakening’ via his monologues.
      For him it was Covid, for others it was Brexit, for others … before that.

      “I trusted authority for most of my life.
      Now I ask myself on a daily basis how I ignored the stench for so long.”

      A government research paper recommending people “shift dietary habits” towards plant-based foods has been hastily deleted.

      The paper focuses on changing public behaviour to hit climate targets and also suggests promoting domestic tourism and portraying business travel as an “immoral indulgence”.

      It was deleted soon after publication by the Department for Business.

      Beis said the paper was academic research and not official policy.



      The Behavioural Insights Team (BIT), also known unofficially as the “Nudge Unit”, is a UK-based global social purpose organisation that generates and applies behavioural insights to inform policy and improve public services, following nudge theory.[1] Using social engineering, as well as techniques in psychology and marketing, the purpose of the organisation is to influence public thinking and decision making in order to improve compliance with government policy and thereby decrease social and government costs related to inaction and poor compliance with policy and regulation. The Behavioural Insights Team has been headed by British psychologist David Halpern since its formation.

      Originally set up in 2010 within the UK Cabinet Office to apply nudge theory within British government, BIT expanded into a limited company in 2014 and is now fully owned by British charity Nesta.[1][2] T

    I reported on the weekend blog that it was rumoured that NatWest now expected current account customers to ‘book’ any expected cash withdrawals >£2000. Halifax as well, introduced restrictive alterations to their T’s & C’s. A friend with a NW account has since confirmed that to be the case and in their experience, they had to undergo the ‘third-degree’ and consent to get their money out.

    As the Government will no longer get involved in bank bailouts as 2008 (NatWest / RBS) the banks are working toward ‘Bail-ins’. If they get into trouble anytime in the future, they will simply steal your money to keep themselves afloat. I see the new move as paving the way toward that ‘solution’ in the future. With the increasing likelihood of a World recession looming and the thinking that such circumstances will bring many banks down, ‘Bail-ins’ would make sense for them. Not you, particularly if you needed your money.

    I hear the call from Davos: ‘we are the WEF, and here we come’

      I sold a guitar recently and wanted to use the funds towards a more expensive vintage one. The seller was an individual private seller and understandably would only take cash. My local Bank of Scotland had me in room for 10 minutes grilling me about why I needed £2,500 in cash, what for, and could I have been the victim of a scam.

    The cruelty of nature edition

    Could this be Mother Nature having a sly laugh at our expense and at the same time providing the left-leaning astraphobic [fear of the weather] ‘i’ newspaper with some schlocky horror headlines? Flash flood warning as heatwave ends. Heavy rain and storms on way as UK enters ‘twilight zone’ Met Office issues alert on downpours – but won’t stop water shortages

    Cue those high pitched nerve-jaggling opening guitar notes from the theme to US 60s cult TV show The Twilight ZoneDo-do, do-do, do-do, do-do… “You are about to enter another dimension. A dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. Next stop – The Twilight Zone”

    Nope, if we’re looking for the newsworthiness of that phrase cruelty of nature then we’re barking up quite the wrong tree considering such outlandish occurrences as a spell of hot sunny weather being followed by heavy summer rain – in Britain that is. Who ever heard of that happening?

    News watchers’ attentions turn to matters literary lately. The Guardian likes a good read: Margaret Atwood on the attack on Salman Rushdie, as he begins ‘long road to recovery’ ‘This shows that if we don’t defend free speech we live in tyranny’ – so says the author of feminist favourite dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale – although the answer to what we’re supposed to do about it does not appear in the headlines.

    From Kabul and beyond, a year of Taliban rule in Afghanistan… Kabul, where women are told to give their jobs to men… (BBC) – Blimey, it’s just like The Handmaid’s Tale. The Americans effectively ran that country for 20 years and that didn’t appear alter their culture over there one iota. So if Western Neocon cultural interventionism don’t work perhaps we should simply separate ourselves and defend our own borders against the world’s bad guys with their bad ideas?

    Indonesians on UK farms ‘face risk of debt bondage’ – so says the Guardian’s main headline: …they have been saddled with debts of up to £5,000 by unlicensed foreign brokers to work in Britain… – £5,000… that’s what our British winter fuel bills are looking like! Brexit and the war in Ukraine have created chronic labour shortages in the UK – The Guardian there busily editorialising their own bugbears into the story so as to cover the basic problem of our ludicrously porous borders. Cut off the supply of cheap labour and let local wages rise to a level to satisfy demand. That’s the cruel, if natural, economic law.

    To be fair to the left-leaning papers they are the only news titles willing to even mention the phrase freedom of speech on their frontpages: Kate Maltby Why there can be no argument about free speech (‘i’) – But oh yes there jolly well can, Kate. And there is: Edinburgh Fringe: ‘Extreme’ racism behind Sadowitz scrapping… An Edinburgh Festival show by controversial comedian Jerry Sadowitz was cancelled for “extreme racism and misogyny”, venue bosses have said… “We became immediately aware of content that was considered, among other things, extreme in its racism, sexism, homophobia and misogyny” – well, that’s just one card short of what they call in poker a full house.

    Nick Timothy in the Telegraph has a rather skirting around the issue frontpage teaser for his column, which we assume, eventually gets around to talking about free speech, unafraid of accusations of blasphemy against state-approved religious or quasi-religious doctrins: To defend our freedoms, we must be aware of the danger we face

    Not so hardy students warned over novelist – is the ironic punning headline to the Telegraph report on the University of Warwick issuing ‘trigger warnings‘ advising students that Victorian novelist Thomas Hardy’s Far From The Madding Crowd depicts ‘the cruelty of nature‘. Brace yourselves… Hardy’s book contains descriptions of dead sheep.

    Where to segueway from there?

    1978, when Denis Healey said Geoffrey Howe’s criticism was “like being savaged by a dead sheep” – I’m guessing the islamists will be saying something pretty similar about our Magaret Atwood et al

    Or perhaps come bang up to date and Far From The Madding Crowd – that’s where mainstream media run away from reporting black youths looting shops on Oxford Street this weekend in the face of impotent policing?

    Free speech – it’s an imagined environment where comic performers would feel no political restraint on what they joke about – or where news media would feel no political retraint on what they report.

    On Toady. Another day. Another BBC ‘victim’ group defined. And another heartwarming example of the benefits of mass immigration. This one’s a real cracker.

    Scientists at Oxford have found a way to get a donor kidney to accept a different blood group. This means that it would be much easier to offer transplants.
    But what is the importance of this research, according to the BBC?

    Wouldn’t you know it. It’s because BAMEs are unfairly at a disadvantage when waiting for transplants !!!!! Yes, you see they are more likely to be blood group B, and there are not enough donors with blood group B.

    Only at the end are we told the figures. BAME are over-represented as ‘victims’ 33% of kidney transplants are to BAMEs but they make up only 9% of donors.

    Why so many transplants? I wonder how many of the 33% actually live here and how many fly-in for the free treatment from our International Health Service?
    Why so few donors for their own sistas and bros?

    On those questions, the BBC was its usual silent self.

    The BBC Moaning Emole.

    Always a pleasure.

    “Labour’s energy bills plan”

    Ok. They are in opposition. Things are not great. Alternative ideas welcome. So, let’s analyse.

    “Labour plans extra tax on energy firms to fund bills freeze”

    Ah, a tax. That takes money from somewhere that invariably means it gets covered from somewhere else.

    “Energy bills are expected to keep rising, and to tackle this, Labour has announced its plan. It would, according to leader Sir Keir Starmer, see savings of £1,000 for the typical family.”

    So… a claim. Followed by little by way of the usual critical folk saying stuff in response the bbc is fond of deploying. Just it has been stated.

    But Ed and Krankie like it.

    No word from Draino.

    JHB of Talk TV has been covering the story that most of the media keep side stepping…

    Yes, it’s been hot and yes, it’s been dry, but why, when our population has soared by up to ten million, have we not built any more reservoirs? It’s just common sense.

    She says it’s 30 years sine the last reservoir was dug, others claim it’s nearer 40. Whatever, it’s far too bleedin’ long.

    This lack of foresight is down to governmental incompetence, but the green mafia actually create a lot of the environmental problems we face, fulfilling the the very things they prophesise.

    In Australia they have prohibited the clearing of brushwood. This sensible tradition was apparently even carried out by the Aboriginal peoples, long before the European settlers arrived. Since the green lobby had it stopped there have been numerous terribly destructive bush fires (the worst since records began!) that always get put down to (you’ve guessed it) global warming. Our television screens show roaring fires and billowing smoke as these uncontrollable blazes roar through the dry as tinder brushwood. It needn’t have happened.

    In Blighty, our own green loonies have stopped the dredging of rivers, arguing that we destroy the natural habitat of creatures like river voles etc.. This dredging used to be commonplace. A river close to me used to have a depth of nearly nine feet; now it’s just over 4 feet.

    Wherever you live on our overcrowded little island, you’ll be close to an un-dredged conduit. If and when we get a long spell of torrential rain..and after this long dry summer it’s bound to happen… we’re definitely going to see localised flooding. It can’t be any other way. Following these “green policies” we have created the problems that they have predicted.

    When this inevitably happens our ever reliable media will be there to cover it, showing gushing rivers bursting their banks, houses flooded, streets under water.

    The BBC and the equally appalling Sky News will be telling us that we’ve never seen flooding like it. “The worst floods since records began” George Monbiot will be wagging his finger, breathless David Attenborough will be gasping about our doom and if we’re really lucky they’ll give us an hour or two of Greta.

    Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts…

      And in the United Kingdom, Extinction Rebellion receives support from hedge fund manager Sir Chris Hohn. Earlier this year, The Guardian reported that Hohn “paid himself just shy of £1m-a-day last year,” and is using his wealth to support the group:

      “Instead, he has pumped money into Extinction Rebellion (XR), the ‘respectful disruption’ campaign that has staged high-profile sit-in protests around the world. When Hohn was revealed as XR’s single biggest donor, he said: ‘Humanity is aggressively destroying the world with climate change and there is an urgent need for us all to wake up to this fact.’”

        Hohn’s supposed generosity is a smkoe screen for his further ambition to support the great reset/WEF et al, subjugation/control and enslavement-he knows well that there is no man made climate interference against the power of nature-the SUN is the controller of our climate and always has been.

    Lots of articles in various newspapers are showing polls saying Boris is preferred to both Liz and Rishi.

    When Boris first arrived at number 10 I thought he would be getting lots of proper Tory things done but a half hearted brexit and full on green policies, amongst other ‘lefty’ favourites like Co2 have shown that he isn’t what we thought he would be.

    I would not want Boris back as he is a liberal.
    Liz seems to be the one who will get things done but we’ll see.

    I wonder what this weeks catastrophe(‘s) will be.
    Weather (hottest/coldest/driest/wettest/thunderiest etc since records began) or will it be inflation related or covidy or…. you name it. Maybe they will come up with a new catastrophe for this week.

    Regarding the loss of farming lands did you know they are declaring areas of special conservation sites to bar the fishing industry from operation there. One of them, Holy Island, (Lindisfarne) is stopping their fishing and 15% of the population will be out of work because of it together with less food on the market.
    I suppose it’s like the energy market. Shut 9 coal power stations and then seem surprised that we may have supply problems.
    Next they will stop building reservoirs for our exploding population.

      BBC News
      BBC One, 4 June 2022, 10.30pm

      We reported that the acclaimed British sculptor Sir Antony Gormley is to become a German citizen. We said he was giving up his British passport because of the UK’s decision to leave the European Union and that he had described the move as embarrassing and had plans for new sculptures that would reflect his view.

      In fact Sir Antony Gormley is not giving up his British nationality and has asked us to make clear the circumstances behind his application for a German passport.

      Sir Antony holds dual nationality as a result of having a German mother and has decided to apply for a German passport, which he will hold alongside his British one.

      In a statement he says he remains a proud British citizen and is grateful for the extraordinary support he has received from so many people and institutions across the UK but he is also keen to retain his links with and continue to show his work in Europe.

      We apologise for the mistake.

      I have just purchased David Sedgwick’s latest book, Is That True Or Did You Hear It On The BBC? Should be an interesting read


    • Fedup2 says:

      Here it be

      FEW readers of TCW Defending Freedom will need convincing that the BBC is biased. The Corporation’s track record of hating Britain and its values in a maniacal quest for ‘diversity’, and as a political campaigner against conservative values and in favour of liberal-left causes such as climate alarmism, lockdowns and much more, has been chronicled voluminously in these pages since launch in 2014.

      Now university lecturer David Sedgwick’s latest book, Is That True Or Did You Hear It On The BBC? brings a series of fresh and meticulously researched insights into the gargantuan scale of the bias. It shows that without doubt the BBC complaints system is rotten to the core.

      The book has been published at an opportune moment. Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries is assembling her Mid-Term Review of the Corporation. The public consultation phase has closed (July 29). Of course, her tenure in office may be short, but she has at least taken steps in the framing of the review to attack BBC bias head-on. Her appointment rattled the BBC, and executives are fighting tooth and nail to thwart her ambitions.

      Meanwhile, Director General Tim Davie – despite a deluge of evidence to the contrary after almost two years in office – risibly continues to claim that his top priority is restoring impartiality. He has ordered a raft of measures allegedly to tackle the problems, including a politburo-style ‘10-point plan’.

      Close scrutiny of the measures, however, reveals that they are little more than all-too-familiar BBC window-dressing and an exercise in kicking the can down the road. There is, for example, an acceptance that output should be subject to independent (non-BBC) review. To deal with this, four consultants have been appointed by the BBC, so the idea that they are truly ‘independent’ is yet more BBC flannel.

      The peerless BBC blogger Craig Byers explains the inadequacies of the 10-point plan in further detail here.

      Sedgwick has already written two books about the BBC, and a review of one of them is on TCW Defending Freedom here. In 21 illuminating case studies of BBC bias at its most flagrant, his latest title nails exactly why Davie’s measures are the equivalent of tackling a petrochemical blaze with a water-pistol. His key line of argument is that throughout its 100-year history, the BBC has blindly supported the social and economic objectives of ‘society’s wealthiest and most powerful entities’, and does not report news but rather ‘news narrative’ and is therefore ‘a hugely valuable asset of global power’.

      Some might disagree with his suggestion that the 1984 miners’ strike was part of a popular uprising against the establishment, but his main point, that the BBC in 2022 has swallowed the World Economic Forum ‘Build Back Better’ agenda and is thus supporting undemocratic political agitation against the interests of the British people who are forced to pay to receive it, is strongly made.

      The book begins with the BBC’s current main activist hobby horse: fanning alarm about the climate. The Corporation’s so-called environment ‘reporters’ trumpeted in 2004 that the Maldives were a ‘paradise facing extinction’ and that the 360,000 inhabitants would soon be forced to evacuate. Eighteen years on, says Sedgwick, the population and tourism have both doubled, and more than $800million is being ploughed into expanding the main airport to meet the mushrooming demand. A survey of atolls worldwide has shown a growth in landmass of 8 per cent over the past 60 years.

      Another example is a forensic dissection of the so-called Harlow ‘race-hate murder’ of Arkadiusz Jozwik, a Polish man, soon after the Brexit vote in September 2016. Daniel Sandford’s television news reports trumpeted it as a race killing, and BBC2 Newsnight embellished the sensationalism by including claims that Nigel Farage had ‘blood on his hands’. Eventually it emerged that Jozwik had provoked a gang of youths by himself being racist and was punched in retaliation. One youth was convicted of manslaughter. The outrageous BBC reporting was also covered on TCW Defending Freedom, for example here.

      Sedgwick chronicles how the BBC rejected all claims of bias over the case, but three years later broadcast a programme intended to put the record straight. It was titled The Brexit Murder? thus compounding the original Sandford claims and confirming that even when seemingly trying to correct errors, the Corporation is so mired in its own confirmation bias that it cannot do so.

      For its 100th anniversary celebrations, the broadcaster appointed as an ‘official BBC historian’ Sussex University media studies don (and former BBC producer) David Hendy. He has written The BBC: A People’s History, which is best described as pro-BBC propaganda, and an extension of how the BBC attacks all those who criticise it. Hendy, in essence, argues that those who criticise the BBC are mainly right-wing, malicious axe-grinders. I hope to review it for TCW soon.

      Sedgwick’s clear analysis is a valuable counter-balance to Hendy’s flummery.ENDS

It was interrupted and disturbed when, according to West Yorkshire police, more than 1,000 extremists, led by Pakistani hate preachers funded by the Pakistani state, were bused in from around the country. The mob brutally attacked my English mother and my father, a dermatologist; my eldest brother and I; and a Welsh Ahmadi schoolteacher who was with us. My first cousin, a GP, was by chance driving through the market town that day. He saw the mob and saw his family and friends being attacked, so he stopped. He was recognised, pulled from his vehicle and savagely beaten up.

    India and Partition? The British desire to ‘dump’ India, racism and religious discrimination caused Partition and all that arose after…


    ‘In 1946, Britain announced it would grant India independence.

    No longer able to afford to administer the country, it wanted to leave as quickly as possible.’

    Really? At any other time the BBC would be telling us that India was the goose that laid the golden egg and Britain exploited it and robbed it of its riches….ah….so the truth….running India, the railways, roads, the civil service, the courts, police and army, the schools and other infrastructure that Britain brought to India all cost us a fortune?

    We learn that Britain used religion to divide….hmmm…actually we ‘celebrated diversity’ and during our time there made it a safe place for all to freely practice their religion…not at all what the BBC report here as if it is fact….

    ‘”The British used religion as a way of dividing people in India into categories,” Prof Navtej Purewal, Indian fellow for the Arts and Humanities Research Council, says.

    “For example, they created separate Muslim and Hindu lists of voters for local elections.

    “There were seats reserved for Muslim politicians and seats reserved for Hindus.

    “Religion became a factor in politics.”

    Isn’t that Britain answering Muslim concerns that in a HIndu dominated country they would have no say? Britain tried to ensure they had guaranteed places in the System….but hey…apparently that’s divisive and racist.

    Then this….

    ‘Dr Gareth Price, at the UK-based Chatham House foreign-policy institute, says: “When it looked likely that India would get independence, many Muslim Indians became worried about living in a country ruled by a Hindu majority.

    “They thought they would be overwhelmed. ‘

    No….An independence state was long sought after by Muslims and it was a condition of them helping in the war…they were quite prepared to fight for the Nazis if Britain didn’t agree to independence.


    ‘Since partition, India and Pakistan have repeatedly fought over who controls the province of Kashmir. ‘

    Part of Kashmir is controlled by India and Pakistan has launched numerous attacks and supported hundreds of terrorist groups in an effort to conquer Indian Kashmir….it is not, as that BBC line suggests, an ‘issue’ to be debated…India owns part of Kashmir and Pakistan has no right to it.

    LOL…the irony…

    ‘Dr Newbigin says: “The legacy of partition is distressing.

    “It has created powerful religious majorities in both countries.

    “The minorities have become smaller and more vulnerable than they were before.”‘

    Muslims asked for, demanded, their own state and tbhus Partition….It might be a resonant warning to all those who support uncontrolled immigration of people who have no links to a country, no desire to integrate and no values, beliefs or culture in common with the natives.

    As Nick Timothy says in the Telegraph on the subject of Islam and immigration…

    ‘Immigration rules should reflect the integration – or lack of it – of existing diaspora communities. Acts of separation, like wearing the burqa, should be banned in public. And we need new programmes that get charities and government working with women and girls especially to open up closed communities.’

    The final lines of the BBC report….

    ‘Prof Purewal says: “It may have been possible in 1947 to have created a united India.

    “But Gandhi and Nehru both insisted on having a unified state, controlled from the centre.

    “They did not really consider how a Muslim minority might live within that kind of country.”‘

    That Muslim minority…always a problem….literally dangerous and
    unsolvable problem that creates a very real danger to Western democracies and way of life…indeed, though the BBC won’t tell you this…this is the problem in Burma, Myanmar. Muslims, actually imported by Britain as workers, are trying to create their own Muslim state in Burma, their own Little Pakistan…any wonder the Burmese kick off?

      pug, my parents always told me that Muhammad Ali Jinnah used religion as a divisive tool in order to get his way during Partition. I have never seen a photograph of Jinnah where he did not look rather sinister and shady, especially a famous one taken, I think, by Cartier-Bresson.

      Monkeypox outbreaks across Europe linked to gay sauna and fetish festival
      RACHEL BADHAM MAY 23, 2022 bookmarking iconSAVE FOR LATER

      Health authorities in Spain have attributed the majority of monkeypox infections in the country to a single outbreak in a now-closed gay sauna in the Madrid region.

      At least 30 cases of monkeypox have so far been confirmed across Spain – with Britain, Portugal and the US also reporting a surge in cases of the rare viral infection.

    The ‘more’ is doing a lot of heavy lifting.

      The immigrants make their way north, having no desire to assimilate to French culture, but continuing to demand a First World standard of living, even as they flout laws, do not produce, and murder French citizens, such as factory bosses and shopkeepers, as well as the ordinary people who do not welcome them. They are also joined by the immigrants who already reside in Europe, as well as various left-wing and anarchist groups. Across the West, more and more migrants arrive and have children, rapidly growing to outnumber whites. In a matter of months, the white West has been overrun and pro-immigrant governments have been established, while the white people are ordered to share their houses and flats with the immigrants. The village containing the troops is bombed flat by airplanes of the new French government, referred to only as the “Paris Multiracial Commune”. Within a few years, most Western governments have surrendered. The mayor of New York City is made to share Gracie Mansion with three African-American families from Harlem; migrants gather at coastal ports in West Africa and South Asia and swarm into Europe, Australia, and New Zealand; London is taken over by an organization of non-white residents known as the “Non-European Commonwealth Committee”, who force the British queen to have her son marry a Pakistani woman; millions of black Africans from around the continent gather at the Limpopo River and invade South Africa; and only one drunken Soviet soldier stands in the way of hundreds of thousands of Chinese peasants as they overrun Siberia.

      The Present British Government is neglecting to defend our borders and our people . Will they be brought to account for the subsequent deaths caused by this neglect ?
      No doubt they will use the usual “lessons to be learned “.
      We need a new government and a new political party that will defend the people of these islands of Great Britain. The present lot are a shambles and are disgrace to all those men that once fought and died for this country .

      Are there any Tories on this site that are still supporting this government now ?

    Iran has “categorically” denied any link with Salman Rushdie’s attacker – instead blaming the writer himself.

    One BBC report does not make a £3.5bn BBC News Omission Service brilliant … let me show you this story about the UN … that was NOT reported by the BBC …

    1989 … Satanic Verses causes Iran to create fatwa for death of Salman Rushdie.

    . . . 4 years later and they mention it . . .

    1993 … Satanic Verses mentioned by United Nations.

    . . . .10 Years of the UN doing nothing . . .

    1999 … Iran say they will not hunt for the head of Salman Rushdie.
    {meforum jun1999}

    . . . 27 years later and the UN have been laughed at . . .

    2016 … Fatwa on Salman Rushdie renewed by Iran.
    {independent feb2016}

    . . . 29 years after Satanic Verses.. maybe the UN could have more serious words with Iran . . . .

    2018 …. Iran release state emojis that show ‘death to America’ and ‘death to Israel’.
    {bbc.co.uk 25apr2018}

    . . . . .

    The United Nations took little interest when Ayatollah Khomeini issued an edict in February 1989 that condemned British writer Salman Rushdie to death for his novel, The Satanic Verses, which is “in opposition to Islam, the Prophet, and the Qur’an” as the edict affirms; if anything, most member states tried to ignore the whole episode. It took four full years before the greatest freedom-of-expression case of our time found an even implicit mention in a UNCHR resolution (the one that annually criticizes Iran for human rights violations) :

    [The UNCHR] also expresses its grave concern that there are continuing threats to the life of a citizen of another State which appears to have the support of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran and whose case is mentioned in the report of the Special Representative.1
    By 1999, the UNCHR chose to accept at face value “the assurances given by the Government of Iran in New York in September 1998,”2 when Foreign Minister Kamal Kharazi said his government would no longer seek to end Rushdie’s life.

    After last nights Chelsea/Spurs game, Graeme Souness remarked “It’s a man’s game all of a sudden again,”. This was because the referee let a few fouls go, let the game flow, there was some fighting etc and it was kind of a throwback to older better times when men were men.

    However his comment predictably drew criticism from the usual bunch of attention seeking snowflakes and females who just had to remind him that it’s also a woman’s game.

    Well, the game last night *wasn’t* a woman’s game, unless Harry Kane is transgendering of course.

    But the most sinister, pathetic part is right at the end of the BBC’s article where they state “BBC Sport has contacted Sky for comment.” So the BBC wants to know why someone said “men” rather than “men and women”.
