    I knew that I would shed some tears yesterday and I did but more than I expected to. I felt a deep sense of loss.

    It wasn’t just the loss of the Queen that I mourned , although that was bad enough, it was that her funeral was symbolic of the loss of my country.
    The funeral seems to me to mark the end of the post war Britain that I grew up in. We have become a deeply fractured society where there is very little commonality. We are no longer a nation, people with a common heritage and sharing the same core values. The great queue showed many of us still hold the what I will describe as old British values , the funeral cortège with the thousands of service men and women looked the part. But this was the hurrah of a Britain that has faded away.
    The role of the BBC in the surreptitious 30 year long demolition of our country cannot be overstated. Even yesterday they were casting around for dissenting views . They have long set a cultural climate that Britain is useless, second or third rate at everything we do. Recently they have added that our ancestors were evil and that we all share original sin for 200 year old events!
    But the BBC is only the outward face of the establishment who have presided over the loss of our country. Only Lady Thatcher fought against them, the rest of our politicians have at best gone along with the establishment view and refused to rock the boat. Some pursued such views with relish. In the Abbey yesterday there was a pew with Major, Blair, Brown, Cameron, May , Johnston . I felt nothing but contempt and loathing for the lot of them
    So for me yesterday wasn’t just RIP Queen Elizabeth , it was also RIP Britannia, those two things made me weep.

        Yes double – I think you hit it pretty well . I dread the succession after Elizabeth II – I don’t think the new monarch will be able to avoid ill judged political comments …. but more importantly I think yesterday was a sort of final flurry of a recognisable Blighty – now we revert it increasing dross and further decline helped by timid politicians and of course – a BBC which hates the people and country that pays for it …

          Well said, DT, I cannot agree more.

          The BBC would have been crucified if they had even started to show their republican agenda, and luckily they had a soft old semi-leftie sod in Huw Edwards to face up the event – anyone with even the worse leftie background – i.e. most of them in W1AA, would have pissed most of the UK’s indigenous population right f*****g off!

          It might have been worse if the commentators were in any way foreign, and thank goodness someone ‘really high up’ told them in no uncertain terms to get it right!

      Queen’s funeral: The Lord Mayor of Westminster’s first ever funeral
      https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-62961184

      One might wonder why the BBC would run a lengthy story about someone at their first funeral.

      This is the Lord Mayor of Westminster – from Morocco:

      _126779425_mediaitem126779424.jpg.webp

      ‘”When you see former prime ministers, Blair or Brown or Major, these are people I’ve only ever read about in books. I’m not that old so they’re not in my living memory, they’re not who I’m familiar with.’

      “Initially they said ‘so where are you going to watch it?’. And I said ‘no, I’m going to the abbey’. They said ‘no’, I said ‘yeah I am’, they said ‘no’, I said ‘I actually am’, so it did take a little convincing.

      WTF has happened to our country ?.

      The BBC are making a big thing about this being the end of the Elizabethan era. This is what they have been waiting for and now the agenda shifts to gradually chip away at the Royal family which has no place in their socialist utopia.

      Meanwhile Leicester is giving us a taste of the real-life 3rd world sh1thole they are actually creating.

    I was wondering what the BBC agenda would be after the Queen’s funeral. Would it be climate change, energy crisis, Ukraine or Covid?

    The top of main news webpage has 7 article 4 of which are currently:
    Flooding and mudslides as typhoon batters Japan
    Threats to life as Caribbean storm strengthens
    Whales die in mass stranding on Australian beach
    Climate change threatens survival of urban forests

    So it looks like the next agenda is back onto climate change then.

      • JohnC says:

        Ha ha – it’s off the scale wokiness full of vague and misleading statements in favour of the agenda. The author is a typical BBC ‘science’ reporter who according to his other articles clearly has no clue about actual science.

        Here’s an example of the typical BBC weasel wording:

        “They replace [the cables] with an off-grid solar, battery and generator system which provides 100% of the power to that customer,”

        That is written to make you assume he gets 100% of the power he needs from the system but actually it says it’s all the power he gets. Whether it’s enough or not.

        My favourite line is near the end:

        The town now has a microgrid system, including a gas generator and solar panels, which can provide power to the police and fire headquarters, a homeless shelter, emergency communications centre and a mobile phone mast.

        How nice of them to provide emergency power to the homeless.

      It’s climate change for now as there’s not much ’empathy’ material from Ukraine at the moment as the action is in the East where men are killing other men in the hundreds and the BBC don’t care about that.

      They much prefer to wrench at heartstrings about women and children who are emotionally distraught through being inconvenienced.

    Sabina Nessa: Group marks anniversary of teacher’s murder
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-62894572

    Buried in ‘London Violence’, we have the story that it is one year since Sabina Nessa was murdered – followed by night time vigils and protests right up until they found out is was an immigrant who did it.

    Then they list the women murdered under a paragraph saying:

    ‘girls are born into a society that’s strongly misogynistic. Boys need to learn how to communicate with girls so they don’t grow up to be haters of women.”‘

    Sabina Nessa was walking home.
    Sabina was murdered by an Albanian immigrant.

    Shadika Patel was waiting for a bus.
    Shadika was murdered by a black man

    Maria Rawlings was on a bus.
    Maria was murdered by someone called Valentin Lazar

    Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman were in a park.
    Bibaa and Nicole were murdered by a Muslim.

    Sarah Everard was walking home.
    Sarah is the only killed by a white English male. And that story got an enormous amount of coverage compared to the others.

    The reality of the advice they should give is ‘be much more wary of non-white males as they are many times more likely to attack you than white males’. That could save lives – but the agenda is more important to the BBC than any dead women.

    Certain parts of society are far, far more misogynistic than others. But the shameless BBC hypocrites will never go near that. The saying ‘Import 3rd world, get 3rd world’ has never been more appropriate.

    I see our new Socialist Blue Labour Prime Minister is pushing the button on the sterling printer again. This time its more billions for Ukraine that she has no intention of ever repaying. The US are supplying weapons on a lend lease basis, meaning there is at least some intention of repayment however long that takes, we appear to have no such arragement.

    There now appears to be general disapproval of this ‘generosity’ with our money and I for one would not accept cutbacks in this country from a Socialist government wishing to grandstand on an international stage whilst telling the people at home they have to tighten their belts.

      All part of the BBC pro-lockdown propaganda….they wanted to force kids to get vaccinated by scaring them with ‘news reports’ of children dying in swarms…they’d hype up and sensationalise any report about a child who caught covid and the tried to scare them more by claiming they might not show symptoms but in the end ‘long covid’ will get you and you’ll suffer life-long debilitiating consequences of catching covid…so get vaccinated.

      The BBC also wanted to force schools to close and they put, successfully, enormous pressure on government to do so……and masks.

      Naturally the figures show a miniscule number of children dying and that they generally didn’t suffer from having caught covid…..and that ‘long covid’ is pretty much a myth….mostly in the mind of people who want to be ill….any disease or injury will have longer term consequences for some…’long covid’ was invented as a term that could be used to scare us whereas the reality is that you don’t have a disease or even a cold and then suddenly wake up one day and you’re perfectly healthy…it’s a process that takes time….same for covid….ever hear of ‘long broken leg’ or ‘long pneumonia’? No…because ‘long covid’ was a ‘nudge unit’ brainwave meant to scare us….taken up with alacrity by the BBC….and it is quite possible that the BBC helped create ‘long covid’ by ramping up the fear of covid and increasing anxiety and depression of people who then succumbed to that fear and ‘caught’ long covid….ie…their mental health was destroyed by the BBC…..part of that ‘long covid lobby’.

      ‘What’s the link between long Covid and mental health? A study just published in the Journal of the American Medical Association suggests it’s a significant one. The paper looked at more than 3,000 people who tested positive for Covid in the US. Of those who went on to develop ‘long Covid’, it found many of them already experienced mental distress before catching the virus.

      Speak to doctors and they’ll tell you they knew this from the start. One says it was fairly obvious early on that long Covid patients were suffering from anxiety. But as a long Covid lobby grew, it became a taboo for GPs to say this.

      British researchers writing this June in the journal Nature found an increase in the odds of developing long Covid in people who already had anxiety and depression. That study of 6,907 Covid sufferers also found age, being female, white or obese were factors in longer-lasting virus symptoms.

      In short, the most typical long Covid sufferer is a well-educated, obese white woman with a history of poor mental health.

      While many of these people are languishing on NHS waiting list, a significant proportion will also be long Covid sufferers. Getting to the bottom of what long Covid really is can only be a good thing, for its sufferers and for the British economy.’

    Just checking to see what happened about the rumour Meghan was wearing a microphone for Netflix through the funeral.

    Top result from Google said:

    ”Damaging’ claims Meghan Markle wore microphone while meeting well-wishers at Windsor Castle debunked’

    So I checked for the plausible explanation for the clear square device under her skirt and the ‘debunking’ was (from ‘The Mirror’):

    ‘a source close to Meghan told Page Six: “This is insane and actually damaging to her. Of course, she was not wearing a mic.”‘

    Ah – well and truly debunked then.

    The only actual explanation speculated on was:

    “Maybe she wears her belt on the inside and that’s the buckle. I often wear my belt on the inside with the buckle off-centre.

    Although I admit I’m no leading authority on celebrity fashion, I do wonder what a belt worn under that tight dress would be holding up ?. Industrial bloomers perhaps ?.

    Still – the mirror len it their support.

    If they can prove she wasn’t wearing a microphone, the BBC ‘Reality Check Team’ will fact-check it. Otherwise they will ignore it.

    From the DT about the culture secretary – don’t hold your breath –

    BEGINS Michelle Donelan has said she would review the BBC licence fee in the “coming weeks” as she declined to reveal whether it could be scrapped.

    The new Culture Secretary praised the broadcaster’s “tremendous” coverage of the Queen’s funeral, refusing to make policy “on the hoof”.

    But speaking to Sky News, she added: “It is no secret that I have been a long term sceptic of the licence fee and we need to make sure the BBC is sustainable in the long term.

    “I’m looking at this in the round, I’m someone who decides policy on evidence and that’s what I will be doing in the coming weeks.

    Appearing on the Today programme, Ms Donelan spoke of the “importance” of decriminalising non-payment of the licence fee, indicated by Liz Truss during the Tory leadership campaign, and declined to say whether the sale of Channel 4 would go ahead as planned.ENDS

    Justin Webb demanding C4 and the BBC be saved and not come under any government scrutiny or criticism….putting the case for the abolition of both ironically….certainly of the BBC as he fronts up the BBC’s own defence claiming the coverage of the Queen’s funeral was so good that only the BBC could do it and thus it must stay a national treasure as Netflix and Amazon wouldn’t provide such coverage.

    Hmmm…but they might if the opportunity was there…but why bother when it is covered by other broadcasters?…and not just the BBC of course….Webb had a slip of memory and forgot the commercial ITV and indeed C4 and C5 covered the funeral….and undoubtedly just as well as the BBC.

    If anything Webb’s defence says the BBC does news whilst Amazon and Netflix don’t and thus should exist….OK….limit it to news [and not views] and let others do the entertaining.

    It must be a hard listen for so many people when they tune into R4 only to be continually lectured on and bombarded by continuous propaganda about climate, empire and race…often at the same time as today when a programme about Gospel music turned into a programme about protest and climate change and civil rights. I know the BBC has to shoehorn climate propaganda into every programme but it’s a bit of torturous leap to force it and a narrative about racist Britain into one about gospel music……‘what, if anything, the environmental movement might learn from Gospel music’s part in the American Civil Rights Movement.’

    Immediately following we had a programme about the Fens….as the BBC tells us…‘Politics, commerce and climate change collide as Proulx looks at the English Fens.’….apparently thousands of years ago when Britain became cut off from the continent[or was that 2016? lol] we lost the connection to the big land mass and from then on we yearned to be part of something bigger and thus begot the Empire, colonialism,, nationalism and racism…no, really….written by an American of course….and all tied into climate change, and if I’d listened longer, I’m sure George Floyd would have got a mention.

    After the Fens a programme about The Swamp….that is the BBC and its fetid obsessions.

      BBC Local Radio is a cesspit of poor talent, astonishing ignorance and insipid activism served up after being macerated + filtered to remove any lumps whatsoever – I simply can’t listen to it – to do so would result in a considerable dental bill from the teeth grinding provoked.

    Home page with another generic man: “Somaiya Begum: Man denies murdering Bradford student”

    The man is Mohammed Khan… probably no family ties to the Mohammed Khan who tried to storm the Queen’s coffin, or the Mohammed Rahan who stabbed police at Leicester Square.

    Definitely related however to the murdered student — he’s her uncle. But the BBC don’t tell you that, you have to go to an actual news agency to find out.

        There was much appreciation on the twitter – the coloured character obviously has a ‘fan club ‘…

        But more seriously – I think we all need ‘reparations ‘ – I want compensation because I didn’t go to Eton or Winchester or some other public school where I’d learnt to be really entitled …
        What compensation do I deserve for a ruined life because of such deprivation ?

        I mean really – people after souped up welfare handouts because of ‘history ‘ – mad world ….

    The bbc has now aired the Trudeau singing video the night before the funeral – it didn’t include the bit where he got his man part out and peed on the piano …

    If that had happened I’m sure there’d have been plenty of woke supporters saying ‘it was just a bit of fun’ –

    Trudeau – I think – is just an example of the falling standards after Elizabeth II passes …. Down the sewer we go …

    Just been reading the BBC reports about Leicester and the violence there. I had to look elsewhere on the internet to discover that basically the Muslim’s are the cause of it from start to finish. It’s pure racist hate.

    But of course the BBC NEVER blame Muslims for anything. So I took a look to see how they report things against Muslims by Hindus.

    The first article I found was from last month:

    The rise and rise of anti-Muslim hate music in India
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-62432309

    It contained the following:

    ‘ … part of a growing trend of music on YouTube and other social media platforms where supporters of the Hindu right-wing spew venom at Muslims.’

    Of course black rappers spewing venom at the police and white people is fine.

    The whole article is full of similar rhetoric of Hindus are bad, Muslims are just the poor victims. It uses the phrase ‘right-wing Hindu’s’ no less than 5 times just to make sure you get the message.

    Yet in this case they make no reference whatsoever as to who are the violent mob. They don’t mention how many of the 47 arrested are Muslim. My guess is 47. And the 25 injured officers are well and truly brushed under the carpet with the phrase ‘none of them are serious’ which apparently makes it alright. Same as BLM.

    The most outrageous racist double-standards by the BBC. Completely as usual.

        These violent mobs attacking the police are Muslims and so are the agitators coming in from Birmingham – yet that article does not make any mention of that at all. The reader has no clue who are causing all these problems.

        The first 2 rules for the ‘National Union of Journalists code of conduct’ are:

        1. At all times upholds and defends the principle of media freedom, the right of freedom of expression and the right of the public to be informed.

        2. Strives to ensure that information disseminated is honestly conveyed, accurate and fair.

        The BBC fail on both counts. They practise active, agenda-based censorship and only tell the truth when it suits them.

        They have very few journalists at the BBC now. The majority are left-wing activists.

    Almost zero women die in child birth white or black
    However the tiny few that do , do skew towards women born abroad in poor countries like Africa
    ie it is the previous bad health practice and care
    and NOT due to NHS or hinted racism

    Watch the emotional farewell to the Queen
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-62962140

    Just for more evidence of the BBC bias, I watched this video for one reason : to see who the BBC chose to focus on in the crowd. I already knew it would not be a fair representation of the UK but it’s good to confirm it with actual evidence.

    The results (and actual percentage of the population) are:

    White Female 66% (44%)
    Black Female 9.5% (1.5%)
    Black Male 4.7% (1.5%)

    White Male 19% (43%)

    Every group over-represented except white males. Exactly as expected and the same as what we see in every other BBC article.

    And interestingly they also have the black woman with the union jack around her again who they also featured during the long queue and also walking past the coffin. Clearly a BBC plant. Dirty scumbags.

    The BBC evening “news” (I use the term loosely) ran an inordinately long piece on the story of a possible miscarriage of justice in the US, in which a man accused of murder has had his sentence quashed.

    Does that really deserve a top slot in the evening news?

    Oh, hang on, his name is Adnan Syed, and the case received a lot of attention after members of his ‘community’ agitated on social media.

    Expect more like that, as the ‘community’ exert ever more power.

    (See Leicester)
