The King visited Wales today. The BBC 6 pm News took it as an opportunity to question the monarchy in Wales. It was all negative and cleverly worded with questions where the only possible answer was the Welsh dislike the monarchy.
GBNews emphasised the popularity of the monarchy in Wales.
Allan Little started by saying the title ‘Prince of Wales’ is not universally loved or admired there. It was originally held by Welsh rulers but taken by the English (listen to the implications). He goes on to say that for many Welsh nationalists it carries the memory of conquest and subjugation of Wales by the English crown. He then explains that Hywel Griffiths reports that Wales remains divided on the question of its relationship with the rest of the United Kingdom and the future role of the monarchy itself.
There is more but you get the flavour.
Meanwhile GB News was much more positive.
Not only does the BBC hate the monarchy anyway but I believe they see the British love for it as something that differentiates this country from the rest of Europe. (They will dislike other European monarchies too). But if only the Left could get rid of monarchies, then one of those things which differentiates one country from another disappears and a united Europe can appear.
There is something about a modern monarchy that can bring a special Something to billions of people not just in the UK , Europe but in any part of the world .
Walk into the meanest bar in Thailand and disrespect the photo of their King they would hang in the corner of the bar , and the pimps and prossies would probably beat your head in .
The last native Prince of Wales was in 1283, surely they can’t bear a grudge for that length of time!
“it carries the memory of conquest and subjugation” How exactly? It’s nearly 800 years ago and non of them can remember that!
There is only an issue of Welsh nationalism because the self hating Left cultured it in their self loathing bosoms.
Don’t know🙂..as a Yorkshire man, I’m not too keen on the Duke and Duchess of York titles.
About half of the Welshmen today are likely to be descendants of Englishmen. Many Englishmen are descendants of Welshmen.
Now we have another conflict brewing between Armenia and Azerbaijan with Iran sending “tens of thousands of troops to their borders and stating they will not tolerate any border changes to the two countries.

Bad colonisers in South Africa remembered with death of the Queen. It did not take the BBC long to get stuck into the evils of the empire.
”These days, many younger South Africans, in particular, are questioning the compromises that accompanied their country’s transition to democracy in the early 1990s, and are demanding that Western nations do far more to acknowledge centuries of colonial exploitation.”
“Bad colonisers in South Africa remembered with death of the Queen. It did not take the BBC long to get stuck into the evils of the empire.”
Your excellent comment epitomises the disgrace that the BBC wallows in these days.
They are a foul, dishonourable crowd of leftist inferiors and their publicly funded millions should be abandoned as soon as possible, as they just do not represent normal British Citizens any more.
They can fiddle around with their fake ‘pomp and circumstance’, but their lies are just below the surface of their deplorable output.
England is a terrible country, – our 3 neighbours would love Independence but can’t survive without us, we’re racist, and we’re colonisers, YET everyone on the planet would have loved to be photographed with the Queen (except Corbyn), every BAME wants to live here, we have the dregs of the world washing up on our shores, and a good half of the planet will be watching the funeral on the tele !
What do you mean by “Three”?
Video of a man arrested for stabbing two police officers. He could be prosecuted for some kind of hate crime as he had apparently blacked his face….or was it the real colour?
Sometimes only a double tap headshot will do
The Sun doing a public service putting that out
The Keystone Cops for the modern era, shouting and screaming is all they’re good at..
Anything on about it on Al Beeb?
Yes, the BBC did comment.
Apparently, it was “a mainly peaceful stabbing”…
Those videos make you understand just what it means when the BBC side with BLM against the police.
They are not romantic innocent freedom fighters standing up to oppression. They are violent scum.
“The queue to see the Queen lying in state at Westminster Hall has reopened after entry was officially paused for seven hours, the government has said.”
“However, people locally said the park and entrance to the line were only closed for around 30 minutes, with another queue then forming outside the park before the gates were soon reopened.”
Kind of obvious : if you close the queue people are just going to queue for the queue to reopen..
Probably just an excerise in government control, making fake announcements to nudge people into delaying traveling to join.
Still not too late to float a royal barge up and down the river, so everyone that wishes to, can pay their respects..
I sat watching the queuers today, next to National Theatre on the South Bank.
They seemed to be enjoying it, it’s like a pilgrimage I guess, the arduous journey adds to the experience; if it was easy it’d miss the point.
The desperation oozes from every pore.

There is something dishonest about snapping a polar bear standing on a smallish bit of ice: it proves nothing by itself. The problem is what is projected subliminally. It always reminds me of those Fox’s Glacier Mint adverts from years ago, when a fox would stand, paws close together, on one of the smallish sweets. I too have lost much of the respect I once had for Attenbore.
The biggest lie involved in those pictures is they don’t mention that tagged polar bears regularly swim 30 miles and the longest recorded swim was 220 miles.
They are not called Ursus Maritimus for nothing.
Frankie and Nish still captaining HIGNY?
Today Toady Toady
I suppose it had to happen – the comrades from the university of Essex are doing a ‘survey ‘ of the ‘social profile ‘ of those queuing to attend the Queen .
Meeshal ‘interviewed’ the comrade professor running this . No criticism – just wanting to know how ‘representative ‘ of Britain the Queue is .
The result ?oh yeah it’s totally representative – although it’s full of Tory voters .
Meeshal didn’t ask the following questions ?
1 – what are the politics of said comrade professor ( I could answer that one )
2 – what does this survey achieve ?
3 – how could you be so distasteful
4 – when members of your family die how would you like someone to survey it ?
5 have you no shame ?
I suppose something which is meant to be solemn and respectful it bound to involve the occasional sex criminal ( yesterday ) – some wanting to get shot ( overnight ) queue jumping ( regular- journos and MPs ) .
Watching from a distance – the streaming of the coffin – which has over 10k ‘viewers ‘ when I’ve looked seems very …. White … but then the BBC and advertising industry has encouraged me to notice …
After a brave walk over Westminster bridge?
The BBC found Russian tanks and relieved residents in the city, which was liberated after around six months of Russian occupation.
Simpo in vanguard? Relieving away.
“Simpo in vanguard?”
What? Are there some free pies going?
In Lynne Truss terms I at first assumed ‘The BBC’ had decided to hijack the end scene in ‘Stripes’.
So, fewer CEOs and Marketing Directors on the BBC red sofa.
Shutting down the bullshit parliament would save a few quid.

Ok, how much?
The problem for the BBC is that when they decided their future was ‘young women and BAME’, they became infested with activists.
Fairly old article but gives the gist as to what the BBC Media Action are about:
BBC never mind the quality…

So it does as though the migrant loving Swedish government has been removed by the voters and a government less migrant friendly is about to take office.
The main issue of the campaign was the violence and lawlessness bestowed on Sweden by twenty years of mass migration. The Swedes admit that there are many areas of the country which the police have no control over at all.
I remember President Trump described this situation very clearly some years ago. Of course the globalist left ridiculed him for saying it and the Swedes denied it. It is just the same regarding his comment about Germany’s energy dependence on Russia, and his comments about the southern border of the USA, and his determined stand against China.There are undoubtedly other instances of his warnings, all ignored and laughed at by the clever folks in the MSM and the liberal establishment, coming true exactly as he predicted.
There only two things that you can conclude from this series of events. Firstly Trump’s analysis on major issues was good. Secondly, the MSM and global internationalist , who fought so hard to get rid of Trump and are still fighting to keep in out of office, are either very stupid or they are malevolent and want to destroy the West.
In your last sentence replace ‘or’ with ‘and ‘….
Sorry to keep responding to your posts, DT, but your opinions correspond very closely to my own and often inspire me to have further thoughts and ideas on the subject.
It is actually a very interesting question why the MSM ridicule Trump when he has generally seen things very clearly. All his warnings have proved true. But I suppose the MSM have ridiculed everyone who has warned about mass immigration going back to Enoch Powell in the 1960s. Why?
Are they stupid and/or do they consciously want to destroy the West? I wonder. I think I might see the MSM and the wokerati as still basically children, a bunch of confabulating five-year-olds engaging in a massive game of “Let’s Pretend”, imagining a Utopian world in which everyone gets along, the emotion of hate has been abolished and problems no longer exist, a world where personal fantasies about identity are validated, every dream can be realised, every whim indulged.
And when spoilsport adults like Powell or Trump come along and point out what actually happens in the real world, these mental five-year-olds react with rage. They throw tantrums.They hate the grown-ups for not playing along with the game.
Of course instead of using “grown-ups” as a term of abuse, they will now use “gammons” for everyone older and wiser who points out the obvious facts, simple truths and harsh realities that fracture their fantasies.
Please feel free to comment as you wish.
I do agree that wokes seem to have the naive views of young children. I wonder if it is due to life in the west have been so cushy for them throughout their lives that it is as though they are children who have very doting parents who pander to their every whim. They simply have never experienced how hard the real world can be and can’t imagine anything other than their hitherto pleasant lives.
But double surely your first part is defeated by the second bit . They have no concept of hardship . I have – but not to the le el of the wartime experience of my mum and dad – who were still living in a prefab just before I was born .
Someone a couple of years ago described how we lived in a period of superabundance – choice in everything – affordable food you could eat til you died – service jobs not hard physical work .
And the internet giving then everything all the time . And a culture of self importance and ‘offence’.
The remedy – depression – 15% interest rates – hardship ….. complete with serious social disorder ….they might forget their pronouns
Not the BBC – but near – a piece in The Times today about the shooting of a coloured gangster by plod earlier this week – there are riots planned by the ‘community ‘ today .
Anyway – the propaganda piece aims to lay out the ‘facts ‘. Yes it goes into long tedious detail -and half way through the fact that this dead son of DRC immigrants has done time for gun crime is mentioned – it’s okay though – he didn’t shoot anyone – he only got 4 years and only did 1 year – so he’s ‘good ‘.
Unfortunately this creature appears to have bred – but at least he is dead … no loss
As for The Times – I’ve got it for £2 a month – it ends at the end of the year – but I won’t be paying for it – it’s mainly trash now and dumbed down woke dross
I thought The Times was my alternative to The Telegraph after it went ultra-feminist and ultra-anti-Trump.
I soon realised it wasn’t.
Plod taking the knee during the BLM riots was a lesson in appeasement second only in disastrous consequences to Chamberlain and his piece of paper.
I have the telegraph too on a very big discount . It is poor and many people who comment note how poor much of the journalism is . Headlines which don’t reflect the actual article – poor use of the language – crap subjects – lefty kidult woke themes .
Of all papers that one should be ‘right ‘ but it’s not ,
John seems thicker than your average Beeboid.
That takes some doing.
Here’s a bit from the ‘live blog’:
‘It did, and the wait was advertised as 14 hours, but they did it anyway and it indeed took 14 hours exactly. They said it was a lovely walk in beautiful, iconic surroundings.’
Lovely walk ??. Rubbish.
‘Neil would do it all over again if he didn’t have to wait so long.’
So he wouldn’t do it again then.
Mayor demanding a protest yet?
“Guy”? or is my eyesight deceiving me…………….
Seems the Betrayal of the US rail workers was not by all of the Unions involved, many of whom said they never even had agreed to the tentative deal requested by Bidens White house and the strike is going to go ahead.
No one I’m sure would support the rail companies in the way they are behaving towards their workers, with one story of them being so appalling they even refused one worker time off to attend his wifes funeral!
Conditions are so bad because of shitty management workers are going to end up walking out and quitting which is even worse than a strike, but worse than all of that is corrupt Union leaders who would sell out their entire membership in order to assist The mafia Democrats get a better election result.
Now America will pay a heavy price for the railroad managers intransigence.
Hi Thoughtful, at the risk of sounding like a conspiracy theorist, which we all know is almost as bad as being a racist semi fascist, I have a different theory on the “agreement”. All the unions are democratic party donors and supporters. They accepted the terms of the offer because the rank and file will reject it, in due course and a strike will be rescheduled. The strike will not take place until after the Mid term election. In this way they can still have their strike and also help maintain the Dem majorities in the house and senate.
There is no way in God’s earth the members will accept what is essentially a 3% raise per year for the five year period this contract would cover, nor should they. The majority of the union bosses just want to make Biden look like a hero for solving the strike. The honest union leaders are very probably getting calls this morning to explain all this so they will shut up.
End of conspiracy theory.
Bbbc radio newcastle this morning.
Only the one Vox pop about the queue.
Some chap named Mohammed.
How very bbbc.
In reality, it is a truly, “Hideously White” affair. And that’s in Londonistan! Those foreigners our “Worlds Most Trusted Broadcaster” focus on are more than likely bussed in and paid. No doubt same as in ‘Antiques Roadshow’. That’s the only conclusion one could reach. The demography of the BBC doesn’t match those queuing to pay their respects. Are the BBC uncomfortable with this? I hope so.
But just think, if those millions of mourners rose up, concentrated over a particular ‘issue’ (or continuing ‘wrong’) it would sure destroy any over complacent/WEF supervised Government standing in their way, in a flash. I have no doubt the Government / BBC very grudgingly accept this if truth be known. Anyway, in BBC style: if any of the people queuing has any experience of broadcasters ‘bussing in’ foreigners to photograph, please let us know.
The whole matter now exemplifies the need for a proper leader in this country. Not a WEF/UN/EU/Soros lackey.
I realise that the Monarchy is banned from indulging in politics in the UK under Statute (was that the Act of Settlement 1701?). But just imagine had the Queen voiced a public opinion, condemning what’s happening to this country, in particular, the ‘Ethnic Cleansing’ now taking place, I hazard a guess that many more of the population than simply queuing right now, would have vociferously supported her.
Man in a uniform edition
Could any other nation queue as well as us? – speculates the Daily Star with that familiar feature their masthead thought for the day
One has to admire the tabloid’s masterful concise punning headline: Queuey 2
With roughly 10% of us in the UK – man, woman and child – apparently now on an NHS waiting list, the Star’s daily thought would seem to have that idea that we’re a nation that loves queing just about right.
The number of people on a waiting list for hospital treatment rose to a record of nearly 6.5 million in April 2022 (NHS Key Statistics, June 2022, Commons Library)
Referring once more to the queue for those crowds intent on paying tribute to the Queen, the Star notes an obvious phenomenon in relation to officially managed over long queues: Mourners queuing to pay respects to the Queen form second massive queue to join first massive queue..
At the moment around 1.5 million people are joining the waiting list each month (The King’s Fund, November 2021) – as a barometer of the current health (or otherwise) of the Welfare State (Our NHS legendarily, supposedly, offers free healthcare at the point of access) the conclusion would seem to be that our (however much it may be beloved) familar old system is broke.
To paraphase the most famous doctor of our sci-fi future: Dr Leonard “Bones” McCoy MD, of the starship Enterprise – “It’s Worse Than That, It’s Dead Jim”
Thinking of the enormous public queue to witness the Queen’s lying in state and reflecting on our analogous rather generous Welfare State promises in combination with our inviting open borders to a big hungry world… this is what will happen when one offers inticing free open invitations to stuff.
You know, like that familiar media story of the parents that went away on holiday leaving teenagers at home who proceeded to advertise a big house party to all and sundry on social media – with inevitable consequences.
One speculates that the next shoe to drop, so to speak, in the inevitably impending collapse of the UK Welfare State under the burden of ever-growing demand will be at some future stage the government’s ability to pay benefits – Furlough had to be borrowed because the cupboard was already bare – as Old Mother Hubbard had previously discovered – jiggle with the Modern Monetary Theory, print new cash and inflate the cost of living, or otherwise it would have been a matter of “And so the poor doggie had none”
The latest commitments demanded of the Treasury in terms of writing blank cheques to cover energy bills for both households and business this winter, may at last break the bank, so to speak: Pound hits 37-year low against dollar (FT); Mortgage hike for millions as the pound falls (‘i’ Weekend)
I’m sure the left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper meant to make a regulation feminist point here: The new Windsor women will need to fuel this monarchy – ‘fuel’…? Me thinks the lady doth have her mind on other matters
We think more of our newspaper titles should emulate the Star and consider the notion of a top left hand corner thought for the day. Cut to the chase… don’t just hint and nudge, tell us what you really think.
We’re with you always, Ma’am – promises the Daily Express – however, by next Tuesday, I’m guessing, they’ll be united once more with the people of Ukraine.
The hither to, formerly-patriotic, now momentarily patriotic once more Times headlines a nice idea: Silence speaks volumes – then has sketch writer Quentin Letts fill five wordy frontpage columns: continued on page 3
The ‘i’ puts up a brave defence of old media and attacks the notion that a picture paints a thousand words: Forget TV: the pictures are better in radio coverage
Speaking of wordy… how about the title of the old children’s TV show: Why Don’t You Just Switch Off Your Television Set and Go and Do Something Less Boring Instead? [BBC 1973-1995]
The ‘i’ is consistent at least, promoting frontpage: 40 best books to read this autumn
With frontpage photo journalism presently repleat with every military and paramilitary outfit from the Household Cavalry to the Yeomen of the Guard to bush hat and lemon sqeezer hatted Anzacs: The Princess of Wales met troops from Australia, Canada and New Zealand… (Times) – we have to assume from Prince Harry to punk rockers Gang of Four (there’s one for the teenagers)… we know we British do love and admire a man in a uniform – well, most of us do: Two police officers stabbed in London. A female police officer has been left with potentially life-changing injuries after she and a male colleague were stabbed in central London (Telegraph) – we’re told ‘a man’ was responsible.
No wonder: London Mayor Sadiq Khan on massive security operation around Queen’s funeral (Sky News)
If he Khan is of the opinion he needs security then let his own co-religionists step up and do the job.
Can anyone guess the common denominator of the perpetrators of the following ??
1.Police Stabbings in Leicester Sq
2.Sexual assaults in the queue for the Queen
3.The rushing of the coffin in Westminster Hall
Wonder if anyone at the BBC could manage it ????
What a 3rd world shit hole London is.
Will we see the names and ‘homes ‘…
3 South America / Albania
But maybe be all will be ‘mental health ‘ jobs …no names – forget …
Of course all followers of the Mayor S Khan.
My web-browser on starting-up this morning had top and centre some click-bait to a Washington Post article on ‘will there be a re-assessment of ‘our’ relationship with the Royal Family after the Queen’s funeral is over?’ So, the ‘cousins’ who have always envied as well as admired the UK’s relationship with our Royals may not be content with depriving the UK of its Empire after WW2 and may be out to try to pressure us to become a Republic like them.
At least our King ‘has all his marbles’ unlike his senior by six years, President Joe Biden. President Biden will be 80 years of age in the same month when King Charles III will be 74. It could be that having a chance to vote for ‘President’ Neil Kinnock age 80 or ‘President’ Gordon Brown age 71 will be enough to have the UK Electorate screaming “No, no, NO!” and firmly remaining a Monarchy. Sorry, Fed, I definitely and sincerely hope so.
Not sure about the marbles

He fired his butler for getting caught a couple of months ago I think …
Fed, seem to recall King has said he will not be:
1. a campaigner when King
2. Diana dumped him so she could have affairs because he was still besotted with Camilla,
3. I also hate getting fingers dirty esp. from leaky pens
4. fair call
It’s good to see at least one Socislist Comrade in the Labour Party breaking cover about his true feelings . comrade Clive Lewis has done his party piece over the injustice of the Class System – the monarchy and … you know the song …
But it made me think -how will the socialists suppress the song of the Labour Party at its’ coming conference ( 3 weeks) – will the public have switched back to real life as the Fuel DDs start coming through ? Preoccupied with stories of frozen pensioners – ? Starving / eaten pets ? Overdrawn food banks ?
BTW – there will be a prize for the first story with
‘ I queued for 27 hours for the Queen – now I’m queuing for a food bank ?

BBC R4 news just now
” We need to send more weapons to Ukraine to save more lives”

‘The Conservative ‘populist’ targeting Trudeau’
Hmmm….the BBC’s favourite smear…’populist’…meant to convey the idea that a politician isn’t really acceptable and is somehow just a rabble-rouser and wannabe Hitler [never Stalin of course].
And ‘targeting’….when right-wing politicians says they are ‘targeting’ their opponent the BBC et al jump up and down at he use of the word claiming it is inciting and encouraging violence against that opponent….but when it suits the BBC is happy to use the word…..perhaps they are trying to make it look like the ‘populist’ is ecouraging violence.
The words and tone the BBC adopts are always carefully chosen to push a certain message….this is good, this is bad.
Bias comes in many different ways.
Yes that’s a good ‘bias ‘ term
‘Targeting ‘ sounds more hostile than ‘challenging ‘
One to add to the list ‘
‘Populist ‘ is a negative term but ‘all in it together ‘ is ‘approved ‘…
Sometimes this language is so common that it gets missed ….
..but it needs ‘targeting ‘ …
Bloody cold here in West Wales! I had to put the fire on last night, no doubt same tonight. That’s Global Warming for you. Most unfair: you would think it had the presence of mind to spread its temperatures across the World more equally. However, I’m sure we will be told later this year that 2022 was the, ‘Warmest year on record’. The annual summary statement. My own acuity tells me that signs suggest, for me in my location, that that will not be true. Not scientific, no, “Settled Science” for me but, I had to resort to a fan on one night only earlier, not the several in previous years. Anyway, one question: where have all the ‘flying ants’ gone this year? You know the annoying things that get everywhere and dominate the very hot sultry days/evenings? None. Probably answered my own question……………
I thought this month was lining up to be the wettest September since 1485, another indisputable proof of climate change.
No Climate change that isn’t controlled expressly by the SUN-the Sun rules our weather, brings us light, warmth and much more, not the little ants crawling all over this tiny planet, they have nil influence against the Sun, let us try and understand that.
I see the King Charles has reassured faith leaders that he whilst he will not change the oath to ‘Defend The Faith’ , meaning CofE , although originally the title was bestowed on Henry 8 by the pope for pushing back against Luther and the reformation, he will in practise be defender of all faiths.
Now that he believes that there should be freedom of religion is right provided that the religions in question are peaceful and do not cause great friction within his kingdom. But Islam is , according to its own books, a religion of conquest and most not definitely a religion of peace.
Modern Islam demonstrates this very clearly. The liberals can bury their heads in the sand along with Charles if they want and pretend that Islamist terror is not part of Islam , or that predatory Muslim rape gangs are not in large part caused Islam’s contempt for women and non Muslims, or that the threats to the Batley teachers aren’t supported by the Muslim community . I could go on and on and on.
Liberals have been sticking their heads in the sand over this issue for decades and as a consequence have incubated a highly dangerous alien presence in our country.
Non white history month.
US cops shoot white man in car who posed no genuine threat….
‘Terrifying last moments of a young Kiwi killed by US cops who shot him FIVE times after he begged them to help – and made heart signs with his hands to show them he was harmless’
….but the BBC doesn’t even seem to have reported it….if he had been black?
Googled it and just about every news outlet and their dog has reported this story…but nothing came up for the BBC…I’m sure, surely, they did….but, hmmm….nothing….even lefty website ‘Joe’ reports it…..
‘Man, 22, killed by police after calling for help with his car’
…but not our national, world-wide, news broadcaster whose bame presenters literally wept as they bewailed the death of George Floyd on their programmes and lectured us white folks about our evil racism.
Compare their coverage of Floyd or Kaba or any Black killed by police with how they almost always totally ignore whites killed by cops in the same cricumstances….and conveniently forget that many of the cops are black, Asian or Hispanic….so ‘racism’?
The BBC’s messaging, that white cops murder ‘unarmed’ blacks due to racism, is a highly dangerous narrative as you can see the family of Chris Kaba trying to kick start race riots up and down the country exploiting the media’s refusal to question the line that Black race agitators peddle, one that the BBC actively supports and pushes itself…..white cops execute unarmed blacks….it is not safe on the streets for blacks…’no justice no peace!’
The whole BBC narrative here is, unsurprisingly, fake and malicious. Here are some US figures:
Whites are 58% of the US population, Blacks 13% (2020 Census)
Blacks commit 52% of homicides (i.e. 4 times the pro rata “share”)
Whites are nine times more likely to be attacked by Blacks than Blacks are by Whites, despite Whites’ being 4.5 times more numerous.
Proportionately more Whites are shot and killed by US police than Blacks. This is not so surprising if you consider the rioting and protests in reaction to the justified killings of the criminals Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown and the unjustified manslaughter of the criminal George Floyd. If you were a US cop, you might well hesitate to pull the trigger on a Black criminal, for fear of political/career repercussions. If you shoot a White criminal, on the other hand, there are unlikely to be riots costing millions of dollars.
I researched this a while ago and in the UK, if a black man and a white man are walking towards you, you are 7 times more likely to be stabbed by the black man than the white man.
The root of all of this is Leftist ideology. Which history has shown time and time again has no place in civilised society : it eventually degenerates into the mass murder of everyone who doesn’t agree with them.
Anyone remember that it was Battle of Britain Day on the 15th September? No mention in the media. Remember 2,927 young airmen died defending our country from aerial attacks by the Luftwaffe.
The memorial service has been cancelled.
I did – and I wasn’t surprised that the new king didn’t do anything ceremonial for it – sums him up – in my view ,. His mother always marked it .
I didn’t hear it mentioned on the radio – but I heard Farage mention it . All the ‘patriotism ‘ being allegedly doshed out at the moment didn’t go so far as a simple flypast – but I suppose the national mourning stopped it . Very sad .
I see Beckham has been elevated to royalty and given a 2 page spread in the Mail, just because he queued up for hours to pay his respect. The cynic in me says this man does nothing without an agenda. He’s received a lot of bad press for trousering £150 mill from Qatar, so I reckon his publicity people thought this might be a good idea to get some good coverage.
Not forgetting his tirade of foul language towards the members of the Honours Committee because he didn’t get his expected Knighthood.
Brissles, did you say “£150 mill” , as in million? 😬
Yep, he’s agreed a contract for £150 million over 10 years. Hard to comprehend isn’t it.
As you might deduce from the acid of my comments I am a cynic . But I’m soft on what the boy from E11 did . He doesn’t need publicity – he is a walking press release . I don’t know why – I guess he is pretty and became a brand . But I think he really wanted to do it for what it was .
I’d have hoped that as many of the swamp as possible did the same and went into the general queue – but I’m sure plenty did the ‘short version ‘for the ‘tick box ‘ and to boast of what they did .
I ask myself – when I pop into the live feed of the coffin – whether I’d have done it if I’d been in London . The hours would not be an issue – even the possible 24 hour queue existing from now until 0630 Monday morning .
The answer is ‘no’ .
But I admire those who queue . And looking at their faces as they walk past you can see the link between people and Elizabeth Windsor –
Will that link remain strong with Charles 3 ? Or William 5 ?
I don’t know .
( to the moderator – sorry this wasn’t about the BBC)
Fed ……… ” He doesn’t need publicity – he is a walking press release . I don’t know why – I guess he is pretty and became a brand .”
The reason the Beckhams became branded was because Simon Fuller – the Spice Girls Manager became their Svengali back in the days when the Spice Girls were big. Remember when Fergie gave the hairdryer treatment because of the popstar involvement ? In any event Fuller fulfilled his brief, and then some, in turning an average footballer (compared to the likes of Best and Charlton – he’s average)
and a pop singer that couldn’t sing, into a worldwide brand – purely by endorsement, nothing else.
Recently Fuller and the Beckhams parted company.
I know Fuller did the job on ‘The Spice Girls ‘ but I didn’t know he did it with Beckham too – it’s all nonsense but a lot of people think it’s all significant …
People in those countries who can only understand bullet points and propaganda from those who paid the £150 mill have absolutely no clue about the real world.
They are blissful in their ignorance. And David is thankful for it.
Oh dear. As expected. Cloud cuckoo land.
King Meets Faith Leaders at Buckingham Palace
I’ve always thought of Britain as a community of communities. That has led me to understand that the sovereign has an additional duty, less formally recognised [i.e. other than in the Coronation Oath], but to be no less diligently discharged. It is the duty to protect the diversity of our country including by protecting the space for faith itself and its practice through the religions, cultures, traditions and beliefs to which our hearts and minds direct us as individuals
The beliefs that flourish in, and contribute to, our richly diverse society differ. They and our society can only thrive through a clear collective commitment to those vital principles of freedom of conscience, generosity of spirit and care for others, which are, to me, the essence of our nationhood.
Tell that to the teacher from Batley hiding in fear of his life from members of one the diverse communities
When one looks around the world, who the H would want a President? Give the Monarchy every time. They have done and I am sure will do what is necessary to keep this nation together in these troublesome times. King Charles 111 will do a good job provided he keeps his mits out of Politics.
Not a major point of detail but it’s amusing to see reports of the Princess Royal’s vigil in Westminster Hall as being ‘dressed in naval uniform’.
Just for the record, even admirals are seldom seen in thigh length patent leather boots and white doeskin breeches, but colonels in the Blues and Royals are.
Re: Alex Belfields 5.5 year jail term for “stalking” BBC reporters – it seems that stalking has been redefined as commentating harshly on social media. There was no physical stalking as far as I can ascertain, just predominantly youtube and twitter comments criticizing them. This also indicates that youtube and twitter – well known for censuring certain alternative narratives – were more accommodating than an English Crown Court.
By the same measure were the police guilty of stalking Alex Belfield? There are certainly grounds for saying they were. And who was it suggested, decided the intimidation of Belfield that occurred?
Then there’s the continuing police intimidation of Paul Golding and the Britain First Party …
The establishment is sending those who dare to oppose it a message , ‘ don’t mess with us , we can get you whenever we want’.
They are of course pretending to uphold the law, defend democracy etc etc but the reality is they are doing just the opposite.
BBC in there with the call for King Charles to continue with his climate objectives. Coming from the US climate campaigner, Lurch, has hopes.
”President Biden’s climate envoy has told the BBC he hopes King Charles will continue his work on global warming.
John Kerry told Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg he would welcome the King’s involvement because he “has the ability… to leverage the kind of action we need now on a global basis”.
He said the monarch had “indicated” he wanted to maintain his passion for the environment “in the appropriate way”.
And Mr Kerry said he hoped the King would visit the next UN climate summit.”
… and if that doesn’t work they’ll get Albert Gore to jet over
By chance sky put out a live feed without commentary on the YouTube of the king and his son doing the queue . The security chaps must have been as worried as could be – but luckily there was no nut cases in that bit of the crowd.
One security bloke was telling people to put the phones down before the king chatted to them – shows really the loss of basic manners which hit Blighty …
The live feed of people in Westminster hall is quite something . In a previous life I spent a bit of time there and always got a neck ache because of the roof –
It’s no surprise that people are overwhelmed by it all …even after the 12 hour wait …
Is this the appropriate time for the nation’s broadcaster to stir things up ?
Many taffmen would be glad to see the expensive ‘white elephant’ of The Ashambles in Wales scrapped ?
IMHO Its a bloated bureaucracy.
Any one listening to the BBC and the rest of the MSM when referring to the weather are reluctantly using the word “Cold” or “Colder”, preferring to use “Cool” or “Cooler”?
As thousands of illegal freeloader are landing on our shores who is going feed them, keep them warm, and house them ? Will the burden fall on the poor people of this nation ?
Winter is coming and I sense it will be a cold one …………..
Our Tory Government is feeble in defending the nation’s borders .
Bo Jo warned the invaders that thy would be sent back – it never happened !
It will cost them far more to send them back than to stop them in the first place .
It would be interesting if Tony Abbot the former PM of Australia was brought in to look at remedies . He was with Farage a couple of weeks ago discussing how Australia solved it and he sounded like he’d be up for the challenge here.
In all seriousness – if it is not possible to build a physical barrier at crossing points – miles of barriers – adopt a more ‘robust ‘ approach to dinghies – towing them back or sinking them – putting prison ships in the channel for immediate transfer to an off shore centre ( Rwanda ?) the problem is only going to get worse because of the horror demographics of Africa and the active encouragement of the French enemy to send them to the UK ….
Blighty needs to show strength in withdrawing from treaties allowing the invasion to continue – and take the international criticism .
In the meantime local taxpayers will be paying the price …
taffman, the sparrows have been going berserk around the bird feeder in my garden. I suspect that your predictions of a cold winter are therefore correct. A few years ago in September in the dark I heard geese honking away while migrating. The following year, if my memory serves me well, we had the Beast from the East to chill us all over again in the spring.
But, iirc, it was followed by a jolly good summer. 🙂 As good as the one we have just had. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Envy of the werld.
LBC eh? It makes the BBC seem like the perfect, impartial, non-partisan broadcaster it was always meant to be….no wonder so many die-hard blow-hards with extreme lefty views jump ship from the BBC to LBC where their ‘principles’ can earn them shed loads more cash….and it’s all about the principles, morality and integrity yeah? I see Guido name-checking O’Brien as a nasty piece of work…who’d a thunk?
Just listening to them report on Chris Kaba’s death…apparently there is a vicious campaign going on to smear this innocent and beautiful young man….as happened with George Floyd…you know, the violent thug, drug addict and criminal that was George Floyd. Hmmm…it’s fact that Kaba was jailed for 4 years for firearms offences, fact he was a member of a violent, criminal gang…it’s fact that he refused to stop and drove the car at the police and was then shot. Apparently such facts are vicious smears according to LBC.
Justice must be done and the racist killing of Kaba dealt with promptly and rigorously.
I presumed the person the LBC presenter was chatting to was a human rights lawyer or family member….no…it was an LBC reporter who was keen to praise the self-sacrifice of Jefferson Bosela who gave up his job to fight for justice for Kaba…..or maybe for an easy buck…..
In these sad times, let us spare a thought for the poor BBC, having to pretend to be pro-monarchy, pro-tradition, and – most difficult of all – the ‘P’ word, that dare not speak its name: Patriotic.
Saw a commenter on talk tv (Stephen Woolf I think) who mentioned that each incomer costs the taxpayer £40,000 a year.
How many taxpayers does it take to support one channel crosser?
Can they (those guarding our shores in the boats) fire a large fishing net over the rubber dinghy and tow the lot back to a French beach then slash the boat and smash the propellor and motor. Each boat returned saves the UK taxpayer £2 million a year.
“Telford taxi driver who murdered family in fire refused parole again”
“A recent inquiry into child sex abuse in Telford, which referenced the case, found crimes were ignored for generations, leading to more than 1,000 girls being abused.”
“refused parole again” I should think so!
‘More than 1,000 girls being abused’,
where were the police , the NSPCC , and the Social Services ?
Is it still going on ?
“Telford Child Abuse: Lessons need to be learned from inquiry, says MP”
Repeat. – is it still going on now ?
10pm BBC1 news and Dr David Hoyle was interviewed. He will take the Queens funeral service. He is the Dean of Westminster Abbey. He is in charge of spiritual matters there. What a shame was there was no mention of religion or faith throughout. I expect mention of faith is embarrassing to the BBC.
Deborah, yes ‘Christian faith’ is embarrassing to the BBC but if it is ‘other faiths’ that is O.K. and to be welcomed. I started to listen to BBC R4 Sunday this morning and Ed Stourton was presenting. Not sure he would have approved as a Roman Catholic what he had to say on script, maybe he did? With reference to the late Queen’s Funeral Service he stated when and where it would take place and who would preside but then he said “What about other faiths?”
I took that as a good excuse or reason to switch off.
