    ‘Justice was served’

    Comments not going at all well for the Guardian’s line ‘Protests across UK over killing of unarmed black man Chris Kaba ‘….

    The Guardian’s line is of course the same taken by the BBC…unarmed blackman gunned down by racist police.

    These ‘protests’ [racist dog whistle theatre] and that narrative wouldn’t see the light of day if the BBC et al did their job honestly and accurately and reported firstly Kaba’s criminal background and two, his actual actions on the day….he may not have had a gun but used his car as a weapon…so ‘unarmed’? Not really BBC….the BBC’s latest report…

    ‘Crowds have gathered outside the headquarters of the Metropolitan Police in a rally against racism and police brutality.’

    So…..police are guilty of racism and brutality says the BBC…..just how does the death of Kaba show that? The investigation is nowhere near complete but the BBC has passed judgement…despite what evidence there is pointing towards a perfectly justifiable shooting.

      Give the BBC some credit . They are trying to make up their version of that Pink Floyd chap , the one with the violent criminal history, who died of a drug overdose whilst being arrested .
      This obnoxious individual became a saint within less than a week and the BBC desperately wants its own version of a black male dying with the police in attendance so that they too can canonise him and elevate him to sainthood, regardless of his previous record or the facts of the case.
      The BBC realises that this would open up a rich seam of stories for them, protests , riots , looting, burning , attacks on police stations , ambulances and the fire brigade ( all largely peaceful of course) .
      What’s not to like?

        I did and have saved myself a lot of money.


        • Doublethinker says:

          I did too and yesterday I received my 17 th threatening letter from the BBC . I don’t bother to fill in their form explaining why I don’t need a licence because then they would stop writing to me and I’m hoping to auction off my collection of letters once the LF is abolished.


          • Up2snuff says:

            Double, in theory if you serve two Cease & Desist notices (letters) under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 on TV Licensing, the next time they really threaten you, you can sue the BBC. I wonder how keen the Human Rights lawyers will be to take on your case.

    Another day of national mourning – peace in the realm .

    But what’s this ? Rioting in Leicester ? Reported on the BBC ? Far Right white racists – ?no ? ! It’s the pakis versus Indian show
    Muslims v Hindus . It didn’t finish to 3am so it will be on `match of the day 2 …

    But wait – a local tower hamlets man called Mohammed charge with attempted murder and GBH of police officers in londonistan ?

    And what’s this ? – a a local man called Mohammed charged with trying to attack the coffin of HMThe Queen in Westminster hall ?

    Oh dear – you can imagine the time the BBC management spent trying not to report such diverse vibrant cultural enrichment can’t you ?

    The prosecution rests ….


    • G says:


      Rioting sparked by a cricket match in Leicester:

      Police say – “”We have got officers there, we are taking control of that situation,…..”

      Local’s say – “A resident from Green Lane Road said what she witnessed on Saturday evening was “very intimidating”.

      “The whole situation seemed really out of control,” she said.”
      “The police were there but it didn’t seem like they had a great handle on things.”


      A good example for everyone: When it hits the fan and above occurs frequently, as destined for the future, the police will lose control very easily.

      You are on your own.


    • Doobster78 says:

      And how many more “Mohammed’s have arrived in inflatables and disappeared…….scary.


  3. Tabs says:

    Just been watching the live BBC Parliament channel of the public filing past the Queen’s coffin.

    The cameraman have been told to zoom in close on ethnic minorities. So obvious when compared to the wide angle shots of 99% white people attending.


    • Doublethinker says:

      It’s also now normal practice for the military to put ethnics in the outermost file on parades so that they get TV attention. Watch tomorrow.


    • tarien says:

      Exactly Tabs, they really are a non patritotic organisation the BBC-how many coloured people reading the news, showing the news, out and about journalistically,do we see on the TV these days-at a guess probably more than white folk. An out and out war on indigenous white people has been surreptitiously going on for many years and now would you credit it, quite openly-every advertisement one see for whatever product will show coloured people in the main, yet how those coloured people grumble, use the race card, bicker continually about imperialism, yet again they seem unable to understand the part played by Britain in bringing their country a civilised society which most of them in the UK now enjoy the benefits of. Sadly I have become bitter myself against, these people, or perhaps bitter against the provocation so earnestly shoved out by the Media et al including Parliament. Perhaps our late Queen Elizabeth might through these days of her mourning draw this nation together in a better way.

    Police call for calm amid Leicester disorder

    Absolute classic BBC article for something inconvenient to the agenda.

    They clinically describe the bare facts of what happened and don’t go anywhere near the reason why.

    The link to the article yesterday reveals this has been going on for days. Amazing how I just heard about it.

    All we get is : ‘It is the latest in a series of disturbances to have broken out following an India and Pakistan cricket match on 28 August.’ so I looked it up.

    Apparently India won and they took to the streets in Leicester to taunt the Pakistanis. Who it seems came to meet it with violence and knives. So did the police statement focus on the violence and assaults ?. Nope, it said:

    ‘We are treating this chanting as a hate crime’

    Because everyone must walk on eggshells around Muslims otherwise they get very violent.

    Suleman Nagdi, spokesman for the Leicestershire Federation of Muslim Organisations, (FMO), said:

    ‘Leicester is a beacon of community cohesion.’

    He actually means ‘muslim community cohesion’. Everyone else is excluded.

    The extent of this violence is absolutely shocking considering it is just a game of cricket. It’s deep rooted racism and hatred from both sides – but it’s all brushed under the carpet by the likes of the BBC because we can’t do anything about it and they start stabbing people if we offend them.


    • Doublethinker says:

      I bet that Hindus are astonished and dismayed at the way the British establishment bows before Islam. I expect that other religions share similar unease at the take over of this country by Islam, excepting of course the leaders of Christianity whose heads are buried under tons of sand.


      • tarien says:

        Oh how right you are Doublethinker-those that follow the teachings of Islam have been crawling all over Europe and the United Kingdom without any sensible intervention from our white Christian Society, only little bits of drivel from the authorities-why? Because such people of this incompatible ideology have been allowed too far into our society and have gained places of high power and authority-Chief’s of Police, Senior managers of our National Health Service, Islamic members in the British cabinet, and more-its all incomprehensible, unless of course they want a civil war.


      • Doublethinker says:

        Just heard Global news on Classic FM, ‘ there are reports of violence in Leicester following a unplanned protest regarding a flag that was pulled down’

        The MSM in this country are terrified of what they have been complicit in doing to our country. They are like children who are scared and hiding under the bed clothes hoping that the monster will go away. Well it won’t . It will just get worse and worse and eventually erupt into widespread violence.


      • Thoughtful says:

        Bet they aren’t. They know just how much money the Middle East has, although they are probably unaware just how badly British politicians are paid and how susceptable to inducements that makes them.


      • JohnC says:

        I’m astonished and dismayed.

        I witness double standards of the most extreme kind from every part of our establishment and nobody says anything for fear of being accused of being racist.

        These people care nothing for our ‘compassion’ and will take whatever they can get.

  6. Tabs says:

    It’s basically the India/Pakistan border dispute brought to the UK

    Just like the immigrant Somalians and Ethiopians continuing their wars when they live in the UK.


    • Tabs says:

      Another video. Surely the question here is not who attacked who first but why are Muslims allowed to block and pray on a UK highway


      • tarien says:

        For goodness sake, send the lot of them back to their countries of origin, and never let them back in. If action is not taken and these devils think they have got away with it, they will contiually provoke and stir up situations such as we have seen. Their concept of a civilised society is not ours.

          This is what a lot of people of all colours might be thinking today


          • JohnC says:

            Boris got hounded out of office because of some parties – but the Muslim sweat shops in Leicester which were kept going despite the ban and were no doubt full of illegal immigrants were a thousand times worse for the possibility of spreading COVID in the community.

            Yet it barely made the news.

            All we are seeing here is what happens when you mass-import 3rd world ethics. I’m surprised nobody has been murdered yet. Over a cricket match.

            And the Left look the other way because they can’t try to blame ‘institutional racism’ for this one.

            It’s these gross race-based double standards which disgust me the most.


    • Guest Who says:

      To be fair I recall certain football team fealties got mostly less than peaceful too.

      However, importing the 3rd world on top, conferring Teflon status and employing their relatives in every junior media slot to keep Labour MPs up to speed on voting expectations has not helped


    • Guest Who says:

      Maybe the Guvmit can repeat the success of Partition and all of them will bugger off back to continue the diversity violence, which is like the ‘mostly peaceful’ variety, but not here.


  7. AsISeeIt says:

    Via art photograpy to cricket – just another news review edition

    Well, you don’t need me to tell you what’s on the newspaper frontpages.

    Suffice to point to the outliers. Daily Star Sunday leads with a UFO story: The truth will soon be out there… Spies set for official alien revelations

    And the Observer is spoiling for a fight with the Tories: Truss faces bruising return to political fray after funeral – the editorial comment from the BBC’s favourite news source Sunday incarnation says: Post-Elizabethan age. This performative unity has masked the crises that will return with full force – well, that’s as maybe – but there’s a time and a place.

    First there’s a national and indeed family funeral worthy of a certain momentary degree of quiet respect? The world is watching.

    Joe Biden arrives in London for Queen’s funeral (BBC) – Mr AsISeeIt of course is more than happy to go against his own call for respect when it comes to the opportunity to deploy a fine old gag – when geriatric Joe Biden arrives for the funeral the presiding vicar will surely observe “It’s hardly worth you going home

    Cricket, lovely cricket – currently an appropriate expression suggestive of the cultural ties that may still yet bind the diverse family that is the British Commonwealth

    Not everyone enjoys the game – my own brother refers to cricket as ‘bastard leather on willow‘. His line is too good not to share but I would maintain: like many subtle pleasures in life – it’s an aquired taste.

    Not everyone finds love of this sport a common arena within which to put aside their differences. Way back in 1990 Thatcherite Conservative MP Norman Tebbit, sceptical of contemporary trendy notions of a multicultural Britain, coined the phrase the “Cricket Test” in relation to the already increasingly perceived lack of loyalty to the England cricket team among South Asian and Caribbean immigrants and their children.

    Man Ray was a late nineteenth century-US born artist who spent most of his career in Paris. Involved in both Dada and Surrealist circles he is best remembered for his pioneering art and fashion photography.

    Man Charged is a twenty-first century BBC obfuscation for crimes which will likely further outrage the public, should the fact be drawn to their attention that they were committed by non-native British people (allegedly).

    BBC: Man charged over Queen coffin incident… A 28-year-old man has been charged with a public order offence after allegedly leaving the queue of mourners to approach the Queen’s coffin on Friday. Muhammad Khan, from Tower Hamlets in east London, will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

    A statement from the Met Police said: “Muhammad Khan, 28, of Barleycorn Way, Tower Hamlets, was charged on Saturday, September 17, with an offence under Section 4A of the Public Order Act; behaviour intending to cause alarm, harassment or distress.

    BBC: Man charged over knife attack on two police officers… A 24-year-old man has been charged in connection with the stabbing of two police officers in central London on Friday. Mohammed Rahman is accused of attempted murder and causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

    By the way, rather than have to go to the trouble to deploy yet another Man Charged headline our BBC online news site tucks this – vaguely related – short paragraph within their Man [Muhammad Khan] approaches coffin report:

    He is the second person to be charged with committing an offence while in the queue to see the Queen lying in state. A 19-year-old man was charged after allegedly exposing himself and pushing into mourners from behind as they waited in the line at Victoria Tower Gardens on Wednesday.

    Adio Adeshine was charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of breaching a sexual harm prevention order. (BBC)

    Recently several senior politicians – most prominent of whom was the otherwise forensically renown Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer – have struggled to describe the meaning of the word ‘woman

    However, as we see from the above examples – in sharp contrast with such incidents of lexigraphic confusion, our BBC is remarkably familiar with those appropriate occasions on which to utilise the term ‘Man

    And in the plural…

    BBC: Footage online shows hundreds of people, mainly men, filling the streets on Saturday evening – this was of course: Police call for calm amid Leicester disorder (BBC)

    Well, the city’s football team had just a hard time of it against the Spurs and British lads do tend to get a bit tribal when it comes to local soccer rivalries: Son Heung-min scored a hat-trick as Tottenham destroyed Leicester City 6-2 in the Premier League (Eurosport)

    Wait… I’ll take that back…

    BBC: It is the latest in a series of disturbances to have broken out following an India and Pakistan cricket match on 28 August… Police and community leaders have called for calm after large numbers of people became involved in disorder in parts of East Leicester – I must look up my community leader at some stage – tell me, is there a web site I can put in my postcode and find out who fulfills the role of being my community leader? I’ve one or two issues I’d like to air and it seems to me my community leader – if I qualify to have one – might give voice to those.

    There are a couple of interesting quotes, gathered vox pop, the BBC provides on the Leicester disturbances (as a digression, I wonder, has local lad made good – and dare I say, affiliated person of colour, Gary Lineker had anything to Tweet on the subject?)

    A woman who witnessed the Saturday’s disturbances said there were people wearing balaclavas or with masks over their faces, and with hoods pulled up… “just everywhere, it was like crowds walking away from a football match” (BBC)

    A resident from Green Lane Road said what she witnessed on Saturday evening was “very intimating”. “The whole situation seemed really out of control,” she said. “The police were there but it didn’t seem like they had a great handle on things.”

    “People were still feeling very scared, unsure and uncertain, and with everything else that’s gone on recently, there’s also a lot of tension building up in the few weeks that we’ve had this happen and unfold.” (BBC) – everything else that’s going on recently???

    To borrow a line from the song Summer Nights in the popular musical film Grease: “Tell me more, tell me more…”

    Clearly the police and local Labour MP are going softly softly on this: As the disorder was ongoing, Claudia Webbe, MP for Leicester East, implored people to go home.”We can strengthen our dialogue to repair community relations.”

    “Your family will be worried for your safety, please accept the advice of the police who are trying to defuse and are calling for calm.” (BBC)

    Only two arrests have been made: “Several incidents of violence and damage have been reported to the police and are being investigated,” a spokesperson said… “Two arrests were made – one man on suspicion of conspiracy to commit violent disorder and one man on suspicion of possession of a bladed article. They remain in police custody.” (BBC)

    No doubt come Tuesday morning we can expect yet another couple of exhibitions of the familiar headline formulation Man Charged.

    • tarien says:

      With thousands of Police engaged in the mourning and funeral of her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth, what on earth were the authorities doing in allowing such a match to take place.


      • Cooper_Man says:

        The cricket matches in question took place in Dubai as part of the Asia Cup tournament. India beat Pakistan on 28th August and Pakistan beat India on 4th September. The tournament itself was won by Sri Lanka. When so many people live in our big cities with fierce loyalties to distant homelands that despise each other’s existence, then trouble like this will become common place and, eventually, the norm. Let’s face it, we’re screwed.


        • Ian Rushlow says:

          In April 1990, Norman Tebbit declared ‘A large proportion of Britain’s Asian population fail to pass the cricket test. Which side do they cheer for? It’s an interesting test. Are you still harking back to where you came from or where you are?’. As anyone of Asian background, or with close Asian friends, or who has spent time in that part of the world can testify, he was 100% correct then and remains so today.

      • BRISSLES says:

        There’s a lot of things we could do in safety but certainly not now. Back in the 60’s and 70’s it was the origins of migration, so the incomers were still young and creating families. Those families are now 2nd and 3rd generation who have the bit between their teeth, and are causing all the sh….t we are experiencing today.


  8. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    Regarding the National Insurance and the changes.

    Am I correct in thinking that the changes meant that people earring less than £30k (or something like that) would be paying less NI and that it’s the richer people who would pay more.

    As most people get below £30k a year why is this change being seen as a bad thing (by all msm)
    I may be completely wrong but that’s how I think I heard these changes would affect peoples take home pay.

    Oh look: Mohammed Rahman.



    • micknotmike says:

      Over on “Gates of Vienna”, who I’m sure many readers here are familiar with, This would be headed with :-
      “The following article has a mohammed coefficient of 100%”
      An easy way to summarise the event. I’ve of the thought that even if names are left out, the description could include a single letter to denote the most important characteristic of the perp or victim. For example, (P)eople of pakistani, indian, bangladeshi heritage could be shortened to “P”
      (N)ot belonging to those groups such as somalis, eritreans, africans could be shortened to (N).
      (H)all other groups in the human race could be (H)
      The reader could then look at the story to see if they care or not.

    Katie Hopkins on Bellfield’s sentence.
    A short while ago I would have disagreed with most of what she said. But today I agree with her account of the law, especially with regard to the argument that sentencing has no rational basis other than an appeal to feelings.
    We are living through a major transformation in the law and its role.


    • tomo says:

      Katy & Co’s foes cannot + will not elaborate their position – or even explain the law.

      The silencing of prominent dissenting voices using “The Law” is making a comeback..

      Some in “The Establishment” are absolutely itching to bring back Seditious Libel.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Thank you for posting .

      I suppose it’s useful for Katie to remind people that The Law is a Game – played by lawyers who earn a lot of money gaming their punters ‘ future .

      If the belfield sentence is not appealed and reduced then we are really in trouble – a non violent crime with a 5 plus years prison sentence .

      Is bellfield a serial criminal ( I don’t know )
      What were the aggravating factors to earn doing ‘time ‘?
      What real harm has he done – physical or psychological ( I don’t know )

      Is there a copy of the summing up somewhere and the judge’s sentencing speech ? That would be interesting

      It’s worth remembering to avoid The Law – plod is fully woke – the courts are fully woke – there is no protection for anyone who becomes a witness …

      It’s great to be on the sidelines saying ‘come forward and be a witness ‘… but at the end you’ll be there on your own with no real protection for self property or family .

      But don’t worry – when I’m running the show it will be different 😎

      I don’t know much of bellfield but good luck to him . One piece of prison survival advice is to keep your mouth shut …

      By the way I see that the x4 convictions led to 2 year sentences each consecutively – surely ‘unusual ‘…

    Tomorrow the Archbishop of Woke will speak to – literally – half the planet. What an opportunity to proclaim the glories of Christianity and Christendom.

    Will the Archbishop take that unique opportunity to evangelise?

    Of course not. Evangelisation is now a dirty word in Christian circles. More likely he’ll waffle on about globalism, diversity, inclusion, the environment, perhaps even an apology for the horrors of colonialism and racism.

    I hope to be proved wrong.

    How the liberals in Martha’s Vineyard revealed their hypocrisy. Apparently the migrants are being deported.

    BBC News
    ”Thousands of migrants have been sent from Republican-led states to Democratic-run areas as part of a growing row with the federal government and the Biden administration.

    Two buses carrying people primarily from Venezuela were recently left outside Vice-President Kamala Harris’ residence in Washington DC. Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who approved the move, then called for tighter immigration policies.

    The night before, Florida took credit for sending two planes carrying migrants to the wealthy enclave of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, an apparent escalation of a tactic that has also already seen migrants taken to Chicago and New York.”

            Must be some tribal thing – I’m RC but that doesn’t make me object to a Protestant monarch – although it would be nice if we could have a few of a pre reformation churches and cathedrals back 😎

            But nothing to die in a ditch over . There’s been too much of that …
            …I will put their disrespect down to booze …

    Train booked last Friday so I’m off to pay my respects tomorrow catch the 6:05 from Leeds to KC. Not much hope of seeing anything but I’m there to pay my respects I’m making the effort like millions of others.

    Wish me luck !!!


    • Fedup2 says:

      Good luck – look forward to the debrief – I found myself watching far more of the live feed than intended. So many stories in those paying their respects and to know the decent people may have waited 10 hours for that moment is quite something .

      Stay warm and hydrated


      • Halifax says:

        Thanks Fed. Rucksack packed every conceivable eventuality catered for including comming into contact with Romanians !!!
        If you see any protestor being attacked it will probably be me doing the attacking ……ill wave as pc plod drag me off….

          Have seen folk with a shooting stick, which is useful if you can get your hands on one (possibly a bit late now), but bravo to you Halifax.


    • Up2snuff says:

      Safe travels and blessings upon you, Halifax.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Up2 – so my guess is that Halifax will hit Westminster Hall at around midnight …. I really hope the msm don’t go for the easy option when the queue is closed of tearful people who came from far away …..
        The physical act of homage doesn’t trump that of heart or mind …

    “Both in their immediate handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and their planned response to the harsh economic repercussions dovetailing from prolonged lockdowns, Western nation states have taken many of their cues directly from the World Economic Forum’s policy edicts. Whatever vestige of “democracy” still casts a shadow across North America, Europe, and the South Pacific, it has become unmistakable that plutocracy — rule by a wealthy elite — is fast assuming total control over the West’s future.”


    It is becoming obvious now, even to the non-political observer, the unison between members of the “Western World” and its new masters. It sure is not the voter.

    Magical moment at the lying in state – biden and missus turned up in the VIP bit – thankfully ignored …


  26. Fedup2 says:

    Oh lord im hooked . Now there is a live youtube feed of heads of state turning up on coaches as Buck House . …

    But you could hear someone cutting the live feed when the fraud president turned …

    I wonder if Border Farce and the RNLI will take tomorrow off?


    • Fedup2 says:

      Would it make any difference if they were not there?

      Maybe a few more drownings … but the weather looks fair ….

        I guarantee the UK tax-payer funded illegal immigrant taxi service will be in full swing tomorrow.

        The government have one single priority : get them ashore and into hotels with the minimum of fuss – without any bodies on the beach or the public becoming aware of the scale of the problem.

        Thats what allows them to win the next election. They don’t care one bit about anything else.

    How come all these foreigners such as Biden get invites to the Queens funeral, yet I , a British citizen do not?

      The dryness of Tucker Carlson’s humour ( humor) is starting to sound a bit … British … keep sending the welcome arrivals to the vineyard – Martha will be pleased ….


  31. Fedup2 says:

    Ok folks – new thread coming – I’m fixed on the Westminster Hall live feed . There is not Clive myrie to tell me it’s a ‘diverse ‘ bunch paying homage ( it isn’t – it must be 95% white ) – it’s just British people willing to take the cost of a 10? Hour queue to do what they want to do .

    On Monday we will see the BBC as it is meant to be ( hopefully ) . British – apolitical – no race bias – no social justice crap campaigning – no green – sex – religion agenda – for Just One Day . .. and then … it’s back to republicanism and destroying the Commonwealth ….


  32. Fedup2 says:

    If you haven’t watched the live feed from Westminster Hall – go have a look – it’s on YouTube- you have maybe 8 hours until it closes and we switch into the burial …

    It tells a story about Blighty without the need for words . I think – as well – the absence of the iPhone camera – the selfie – the video – gives the occasion a great deal more . There is raw emotion with some – overwhelmed emotions with others – a sort of stiff upper lip with some …

    But Monday will bring a whole new reference . As a kid I can just about register the RN pulling the coffin of Sir Winston Churchill . How the British public will deal with the same sight for HM Queen Elizabeth Ii I do not know .

    Maybe it will remind a lot of people that the likes of Twitter and Facebook are just ephemeral nothings whilst the passing of someone who has always been there is something else .
