    I was just reading the news on my android pad with google newsstand and had quite an unpleasant surprise.

    Previously I could hide news from specific sources and over time, the BBC, The Guardian and all the other far-Left rags were removed.

    Now I see my feed is absolutely chock full of them all again. Mostly BBC and Guardian but the Independent, Sky and FT are all there in numbers as well. There’s one or two from The DT – but no right-wing newspapers at all (I wouldn’t call the DT right-wing now).

    And get this : they have removed the option to hide them. They are forcing me to read the news thay want me to read.

    The more I think about it, the more sinister it is because they have actively chosen to change it.

    BBC Censorship:

    BBC Boasts it Got Vaccine Injured Support Group With 250,000 Members Removed From Facebook: https://dailysceptic.org/2022/09/16/bbc-boasts-it-got-vaccine-injured-support-group-with-250000-members-removed-from-facebook/

    The BBC are protecting Big Pharma. If the victims are British, they are probably paying the BBC licensing fee and not only are they getting nothing for their money, they’re paying the salary of a BBC smug know-nothing, Zoe Kleinman, to silence them. Does the BBC erstwhile “commissar of permitted language” realise she has just created at least 250,000 more protesters to end the license fee?

    The BBC’s Trusted News Initiative (TNI). A Global version of the BBC’s “Ministry of Truth”. The BBC’s shadowy global censorship & propaganda network with a mandate to identify non-authorised news stories for suppression, and to show a BBC approved version of events. A global media-wide Early Warning System lead by the BBC and including Google, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft & Reuters, etc. The TNI rapidly alerts members to dangerous misinformation & disinformation.

    This is because everything you read, see and hear on the BBC is “Trustworthy & True” and authorised by the Trusted News Initiative.

    This is how the BBC’s “Ministry of Truth” censors Dr. Tess Lawrie, Ivermectin and Vaccine deaths, etc: https://www.thelibertybeacon.com/covid-19-the-shadowy-trusted-news-initiative

    I have to own up to a sense of guilt over the Holly Willoughby Philip Schofield queue jumping affair.

    I’d written a piece in response to a fairly bland puff piece, except it was much more nuanced covered the hypocrisy of people calling so often for equality then not feeling that equality applied to them.

    Equality for thee, but not for me springs to mind, however it seems to have been taken up and blown out of all proportion losing the issue of hypocrisy and leaving just the queue jumping as an issue.

    Not a surprise though, no one likes a queue jumper, nor someone who thinks they are more important than everyone else.

      There’s been much discussion of the demise of stand up comedy. Apparently comedians are giving up because they’re afraid that they might offend someone. People appear to be on the look out for anything that might them cause to be offended.
      It’s a symptom of the era of wokism, racism and religious sensitivity.
      Satire is under threat as well. “Have I Got News for You” has turned into a left wing, Remoanerist, Metropolitan, London based smugfest with full audience participation.

    Owing to the makeup of their weird staff, the MSM including the BBC are on a mission to persuade society that the future of mankind, and I use that term literally in its original sense that the majority of people are aligned with views that in fact do not represent mainstream society in any way whatsoever.

    They are doing this to establish a privileged position in society for their selected groups.

    So, the new hero’s are lesbians, gays, women who want to decide freely to kill their unborn children in order to have unfettered sex lives, people who want to pretend they are opposite from the sex they were born, etc. etc. etc.

    In fact greedy self obsessed individuals and possibly some mentally damaged people who want a free pass to be deviant without criticism.

    Society has always made space for those different people who choose an unusual path but not until recently have it been obliged to regard this as the norm at the risk of prosecution etc.

    If this is in any way the way a healthy society should be I for one am disgusted and convinced that this will eventually end up in total chaos.

      A huge step would be for government to ban all school education on dodgy gender subjects, except for warnings on birth control and sexual disease transmission etc this is all that our “teachers” should be allowed to include in their indoctrination programs.

      Anyone with an ounce of common sense would agree that this is a fair way to educate our young. As it stands anyone with unusual inclinations are able to steer gullible youngsters into their shady world and ideology.

        Following on from this I have thoughts on the rising incidence of vicious attacks taking place. Be it knifing or gunshots etc.

        The biggest deterrent is retribution. e.g. lengthy incarceration for the perpetrators.

        5 years for carrying a knife.

        10 years for carrying a gun,

        20 years at least for any gun or knife crime leading to significant injury or death ought to be the norm without any judge override as our judges cannot always be trusted to act in the public interest.

        If these animals don’t want to act in any sort of civilised way and if found gulty they should lose their personal rights and be automatically removed from society with no appeal rights.

      Thoughtful, he’s talking about the USA, not Europe and the EU. I must also point out that politicians (esp. in the UK) tend to be obsessed by GDP but GDP is a desperately vague measure of an economy and economic progress. Think Blair and Brown, especially 1997-2003/4/5.

      Basically, we have learned nothing from 1997 to 2007. We will be going through the same thing as 2007-2009. Have a friend who is an ACA but regularly hypes up a start-up to me where the CEO is proud that his company is not making a profit! The CEO sees it as something virtuous!! Unbelievable.

      Alasdair Macleod doesn’t start talking about UK/Europe/EU until about 20 minutes into the film and then only briefly. More about wider BRICS rather than specifically UK or Europe/EU. Not sure I agree about gold either. You have to have money to buy gold but then if you try to buy something with it you will most likely have to cash it in, in the bullion market. Most sellers will not assay it.Therefore it is an investment vehicle, it is not money. After all, Alasdair Macleod is a bullion dealer and wants to sell you gold, he makes money out of the transaction and also when you want to turn it back to cash!

      Macleod is a bit out of date. £:$ is 1.12 today. This whole video way out of date, before 4 September as he refers to the Conservative leadership contest as ongoing. Caveat emptor = buyer beware.

    Man arrested after protest at Hindu temple in Smethwick
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-62982948

    ‘About 100 people gathered outside the Durga Bhawan Temple in Smethwick, West Midlands, on Tuesday evening.’

    The 2 other reports I read say multiple hundreds, not 100.

    ‘Fireworks and missiles were reportedly thrown in the direction of police, however no injuries were reported. An 18-year-old was arrested on suspicion of possessing a knife.’

    ‘Reportedly’ – so not definite. ‘However no injuries were reported’. Again the ‘so it’s OK qualifier’ like we got in the story from Leicester. And only suspicion of carrying a knife. So he might not have been.

    We are told:

    ‘West Midlands Police said it was aware of a planned protest over an event at the Hindu Cultural Resource Centre.

    The event had been cancelled and the speaker involved was no longer staying in the UK, police added.’

    The truth hidden in there is that a prominent Hindu speaker was coming to do a speech at the Temple and the Muslims arranged this protest to ‘meet’ her in a manner Allah would approve of. Because of this, she cancelled and left the country. Free speech – Muslim + BBC style.

    https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/world/uk/after-leicester-religious-violence-in-britain-spreads-to-birmingham/articleshow/94360215.cms
    An Indian report on it says:

    Communal tensions have now spread to Birmingham after a mob of hundreds of angry Muslim men descended on the tiny Hindu temple’

    In one video of the disorder, a masked protester issues a threat:
    “This is a message from Birmingham to the BJP and the RSS Hindutva supporters. You are not welcome in Birmingham, Leicester or anywhere in the UK. If you invite any hate preachers we are going to turn up for all of them”

    ‘Bottles, missiles and fireworks were thrown as men wearing black balaclavas and shouting ‘Allah Akbar’ approached the temple fence where they were met by police officers in riot gear’.

    So much for a peaceful protest. And this is AFTER they knew the speech had been cancelled last week.

    Yet nowhere in the BBC report does it state or even allude to the fact the people behind these threats and intimidation are Muslims.

    I was actually looking for the report which came up on my phone about a Muslim leaders saying this violence is going to spread across the whole country.

    When someone dies, the BBC will have even more blood on their hands because they have caused this situation more than anyone else (except the Guardian maybe).

    Just imagine how differently the BBC would have written this report if it was about and right-wing protestors. OFCOM are a complete joke.

    From Guardianistas gone AWOL to Sandinista edition

    Our media – with the BBC taking the lead – appear to be responding to some conscription-like war cry call up to turn all guns on Russia.

    FT, Guardian, Times, Mail, Telegraph, Sun, freebie corporate advertising sheet Metro... all have uniformly alarmist bellicose anti-Putin headline stories today. How about that?

    One likes to explore the outliers hereabouts.

    The Daily Star goes with: Royal X Files… E.T. throne home – this is about the apparently UFO obsessed Prince Philip and calls for the secret dossier he kept on the subject to be opened.

    I tend to take most newspaper headline stories with a substantial pinch of salt these days – but you never know, as Fox Mulder of Mulder and Scullys’ X-Files was wont to say: “I Want to Believe”

    The Daily Express edition perhaps gets a by on the apparent three line whip for the call up for anti-Russia stories. Afterall, the title is: United with the people of Ukraine – the old blue and yellow banner of that far off province of eastern europe flying at full (not half) masthead on His Majesty’s The Daily Express and all who sail in her once more.

    Instead the Express cheers on the poor underdog in life or death conflict against huge odds with a massive relentless bully – I refer of course to the new health secreary Theresa Coffey (mine’s a full fat latte with a big chocky biscuit on the side) versus the untamable monster which is the NHS Blob: You doctor must see you in two weeks

    The Express confronts the Russia story (apparently the crisis du jour) with its frontpage photo feature captioned: PM and Biden united against Putin’s sabre rattling – never mind the resounding racket of bladed weapons banged about being heard from all across our media this morning… Ah, Liz Truss and Joe Biden… Roosevelt and Churchill they most decidedly are not – although FDR was secretly a bit dickie in terms of his health toward the end of the last big hostilities.

    The formerly patriotic Times likewise parrots the US President from our rather vulnerable Air Strip One: Biden condemns nuclear threat to west

    And for a soupçon taster of the anti-patriotic: Giorgio Locatelli What Brits get wrong about food (Times) – mine’s a hamburger, freedom fries, and a coke, eh?

    Credit where credit is due corner.

    One does often criticise the left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper.

    This morning the ‘i’ leads with the obvious anti-Tory pro-Labour attack line: Warning over Truss gamble on tax cuts

    However, just as punk rockers The Clash warned us on their lefty inspired overblown triple album Sandinista! (1980): It’s up to you, not to heed the call up

    So the ‘i’ sticks to its left pacifist guns and doesn’t indulge in Nato-inspired propaganda – unlike the supposedly pinko Guardianista: Biden condemns Putin’s imperial aims as Moscow raises the stakes – let’s just reflect on that headline for a moment. The left-leaning Guardian mouthing a US president’s war mongering rhetoric. Makes you think. Or it should.

    Meanwhile, the ‘i’ – give it its due – plays conscientious objector: Russia and Nato have tried to wage war on the cheap. Now we’re heading for total war by Patrick Cockburn

    And remember – back in April Ukraine’s Zelensky was near to a peace deal with Putin before good old jolly Bojo flew out there for a visit: Diplomacy Watch: Did Boris Johnson help stop a peace deal in Ukraine? A recent piece in Foreign Affairs revealed that Kyiv and Moscow may have had a tentative deal to end the war all the way back in April. (Responsible Statecraft)

    Boris Johnson Pressured Zelenskyy to Ditch Peace Talks With Russia: Ukrainian Paper “The British government has become an obstacle to peace in Ukraine,” said the Stop the War Coalition. “The conflict there is developing into a proxy war between Russia and NATO and it is the Ukrainian people who will suffer the consequences.” (Common Dreams – “Quality journalism. Progressive values” – presumably United with the people of Ukraine – to the extend it doesn’t need them to be cannon fodder for corporate globalist Nato-EU expansionism?)

    One more, rather prophetic – I think you’ll agree, line from that The Clash song The Call Up:

    Maybe I want to see the wheat fileds,
    Over Kiev and down to the sea…

    It’s up to you, not to heed the call up…

    And Mr AsISeeIt won’t, metaphorically, in terms of this BBC-led media propaganda

    Today

    Apparently the new ‘Tory ?’ Government is to try and get patients to be seen by GPs. Today had two English speaking doctors on . There was no difference between them . A double act of moaning and ‘it can’t be done ‘. The female doctor does 27 hours a week but might have to really do upto 40 hours a week . Total dedication . All that wasted training on the poor love .
    I was hoping the interviewer would ask how much these characters earn from the NHS and private – but that was never raised

    The NHS will always be crap if failure is excused by blaming the government – which throws borrowed tax money at it knowing it will just be trousered by managers and the medical mafia …

      It’s interesting how the left cannot help but reveal their truly regressive nature. The concept of a ‘sex strike’ shows how they view such things not as a natural part of a mutual, loving relationship, but rather as a sort of one-sided ‘service’ that women provide. In other words, it is purely transactional, based around the concept that men have to do X in order to obtain Y. The inspiration behind this goes back to the mysogyny of Marx himself, who considered that women should act as collective prostitutes for men, and which is about breaking conventional family structures. The traditional left wanted to do this to ensure that people would be loyal only to the Party. The modern left want it to ensure people are loyal only to employment and consumerism, in line with the dictates of the corporatists who now control them.

        The aim of the Party was not merely to prevent men and women from forming loyalties which it might not be able to control. Its real, undeclared purpose was to remove all pleasure from the sexual act. Not love so much as eroticism was the enemy, inside marriage as well as outside it. All marriages between Party members had to be approved by a committee appointed for the purpose, and — though the principle was never clearly stated — permission was always refused if the couple concerned gave the impression of being physically attracted to one another. The only recognized purpose of marriage was to beget children for the service of the Party. Sexual intercourse was to be looked on as a slightly disgusting minor operation, like having an enema. This again was never put into plain words, but in an indirect way it was rubbed into every Party member from childhood onwards. There were even organizations such as the Junior Anti-Sex League, which advocated complete celibacy for both sexes. All children were to be begotten by artificial insemination (artsem, it was called in Newspeak) and brought up in public institutions. This, Winston was aware, was not meant altogether seriously, but somehow it fitted in with the general ideology of the Party. The Party was trying to kill the sex instinct, or, if it could not be killed, then to distort it and dirty it. He did not know why this was so, but it seemed natural that it should be so. And as far as the women were concerned, the Party’s efforts were largely successful.

    The Mafia criminal Democrat party have announced the end of releases from the Strategic Oil Reserve on 10th November this year by which time they will have almost completely depleted it.

    The date is highly significant coming just two days after the Midterms on the 8th Novemeber, and it shows the lengths this bunch of criminals will go to to try to shore up their electoral position, even putting America at risk in order to do so.

    However the ending of supply of oil from this source is bound to drive up prices and when the oil reserves also has to be refilled that is going to put further demand on the sector.

    Prices of Fuel is bound to rise so make sure you keep your car and any other store full to the brim as prices are going to rocket after this appalling manipulation of markets for political advantage without a care to the future consequences.

    EGYPT — After enduring 10 horrible plagues that ravaged the kingdom due to his stubbornness and pride, Pharaoh proudly announced that plagues in Egypt are now down 100%.

    “Hey, folks, we did it! I did it! I brought the plague rate down! This is because of my policies. No joke! Come on, man!” said Pharoah in a speech, apparently still slightly dazed from being struck in the head by a flaming hailstone. “We now have 10 fewer plagues than we had just a month ago. That’s real progress! For real!”

    Several critics pointed out that the plagues of blood, frogs, lice, flies, livestock pestilence, boils, hail, locusts, darkness, and the killing of firstborn children were a direct result of Pharaoh’s policies and would have never happened to begin with if Pharaoh had made wiser decisions. The king then sentenced those critics to make bricks without straw for the rest of their lives.

    Nick Robinson having a good old laugh with Labour’s Wes Streeting….not such a great ‘interview’…guess Robinson was tired of asking the same old questions after just doing a podcast with Streeting…an advert for which he just managed to slip into the ‘interview’….so didn’t bother asking them again and just let Streeting rant on about how bad the Tories were for 5 minutes.

    Robinson thought he better make a show of doing an actual interview and so rudely interjected with one question….what’s your solution to the NHS poblems? Streeting said Labour would go for prevention not cure then slipped back into his rant mode unrestrained by Robinson who you might have thought would jump in immediately and demand to know where the funding was coming from…which part of the NHS would lose funding to pay for this? You know…the usual question the BBC interrogators put to Tories. But no, no demanding, rigorous quest for answers just a chummy laugh-in.

    All very cosy.

    Streeting was allowed to claim that the government was happy that you would wait two weeks to see a GP…Robinson agreed…and yet the BBC headline this morining?….

    ‘GP appointments: New health secretary makes same-day pledge’

    Though the article gets this wrong….

    ‘… having struggled to recruit GPs in recent years, the government is instead changing the funding rules ‘

    Listening to a GP on LBC last night she said there was no problem recruiting it was retaining that was the problem.

    Nice though that the BBC is promoting diversity…

        That report is a truly appalling misrepresentation of facts by reuters – who are as Left as the BBC (and most other ideologically driven journalists).

        Firstly it should have said how many Islamic threats they investigated compared to the 4 far-Right.

        Next they mix those 4 in with all the others to make it seem like they are a significant proportion of them.

        Nowhere does it give you the information you need to put it in context.

        When looking at this, I found someone tried a freedom of information request for the breakdown of terrorist threats. It asked:

        1. the time period for the analysis used in the press release /
        public statement.
        2. the absolute number of threats characterised as coming from
        far right groups
        3. the Mets definition of far right for the purpose of statistical
        reporting
        4. how the balance of the remaining 90 percent of threats is
        broken down, to include Islamist and far left categories
        5. the change if any in the number of Islamist and far left threats
        over the past 5 years

        What an absolute joke: The met refused to answer 2,4 and 5. It seems they will only discuss the far-right.

    The Chinese Partner in Crime, Russia, along with the former, is anxious to “Change the Worlds Rules Based System”. They need to create a Utopia based on a “Mad Max” World. Russia tries to acquire the Donbas/Donetsk regions of Ukraine. Well good luck with that Putin.

    China is in dispute with Russia over lands the former claims is Chinese. “The history of Vladivostok (literally ‘Ruler of the East’) is from 1860 when Russia built a military harbor.” But the city was Haishenwai as Chinese land, before Russia annexed it via unequal Treaty of Beijing.

    Well then, China, you are preparing to go to war over Taiwan, what about Vladivostok? Easy peasy: just ferry in a couple of thousand troops and a 700 thousand or so of your Chinese population set up referenda and, ‘Bob’s your uncle’ back in your “Mad Max” fold.

    Huddersfield stabbing: Murder arrest after boy, 15, killed outside school
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-62992837

    Another young life snuffed out by a 16 year old barbaric enough to be up-close and sink in the blade to murder another human being.

    No mention at all about the victim or the murderer. We’ve seen that a thousand times before and it always means the same thing. You can be 100% certain it wasn’t a white boy murdering a BAME.

    It seems that more and more BBC reports have something which is just a bit odd about them these days. Here’s the best white-guy they could find to say ‘I’m shocked’:

    Are the BBC developing a bit of self-awareness? “No respite for BBC, despite praise for Queen’s funeral coverage.”

    Media editor Amol brings his Newsbeat-worthy analysis to bear on the BBC’s output and increasingly wobbly funding position. It’s a decent start though, recognising the tension between global legacy and meeting the needs of new diverse consumers. But it all goes wrong when he notes that the sharp drop in licence fee payers “may be partly explained by a reduction of visits to households because of Covid. But the cost-of-living crisis may exacerbate the underlying trend…”

    Still not getting it.

    Imagine Amol and Marianna meeting in the W1A canteen and getting stuck in an infinite loop of back patting and fact checking. Promotions all round.

          The Left seem to have pushed the rule in society now that you are either with them or you are against them. And if you are against them, you are vilified.

          Personally, I consider myself neutral as I don’t actively support either side. Russia invading Ukraine is a terrible thing – but I can understand why they did it. This is all about future world order and I don’t trust Zelensky one bit. He will happily start WW3 to save his own skin.

          I now get the impression that the end-game for the West is the deposition of Putin and either a ‘Russian Spring’ or their complete collapse. That scares me more than anything because before any of that happens, the leaders will be as desperate as they could possibly be. And if you think the USA are not that stupid, just look at how Biden handled the withdrawal from Afghanistan and who he has appointed as his top military leaders.

          Their reasoning will be that they have a much better chance of doing it now as opposed to doing it against a combined Russia/China alliance in the future.

          The USA are effectively in control of the Ukranian army now. The precision weapons are no use without target coordinates and this latest push was successful because the USA knew exactly where the Russian line was weakest. We can only hope they appreciate the real risk here and start pulling back on what information they supply. But I see no attempt at any other end-game than the one I described earlier.

          Putin has said many times that he will use only use nuclear weapons to defend Russia. If he annexes the Donbas and the USA send the Ukranian army into it, that is where it will happen.

    It concerns the Chief Operating Officer of the Vegan Beyond Meat company who got into a fight at the weekend and bit another mans face and nose

    “Douglas Ramsey was arrested on Saturday on charges of “terroristic threatening” and third-degree battery following a University of Arkansas football game in Fayetteville.

    The 53-year-old reportedly punched another driver, biting his face and ripping skin from his nose.”

    I have long considered those on the left to be full of hate anger rage and barely surpressed violence so it’s not a surprise to find someone like this involved in such a fracas.

    It is notable that they have done NOTHING like this over the allegations against Hunter Biden, giving the drug taking, manipulator a free pass.

    No doubt the BBC will be backing these allegations up as soon as they can get away with it.
