    What was it that first attracted The BBC to the raving nutcase anti-Brexit audience rabble rouser?

    Does the NHS have any nurses who actually like nursing, do it well, stick to that, are not on the QT direct dial and are fit and sane?

      BBC Radio 5 Live Breakfast
      BBC Radio 5 Live, Wednesday 3 January 2018

      During a phone-in on the programme a contributor, Danielle Tiplady was introduced as a staff nurse. We should have established and made clear on air that she was a political activist.




    • Zephir says:

      It is called gross misconduct through bringing your employer into disrepute in most jobs, regarding her previous comment, a bit like the purple hair monster who attacked a Trump supporter in London.

      Amazing how many gut bucket, double chinned nurses there appear to be, yet health chiefs banging on about an obesity crisis outside of the hospitals…

      Life is like a box of chocolates, it doesn’t last as long for many NHS nurses.


    • StewGreen says:

      So that video from 24/9 last year of Question Time
      features the same killer nurse
      who did her “do not Treat Tories” speech on Monday’s Channel 5 audience special.

      So she is suspiciously lucky in getting media time
      as a normal working nurse.

    Lets hope the worm is slowly turning, with more right wing candidates voted in around Europe, meanwhile back at the ranch, a small ray of hope tackling black racists:

    “Pentagon has 30 days to probe diversity chief accused of anti-White social media posts.
    Kelisa Wing described herself on Twitter as a ‘woke administrator’ and said she was ‘exhausted with these White folx’

    Wing’s Twitter account also said, “[T]his lady actually had the CAUdacity to say that black people can be racist too… I had to stop the session and give Karen the BUSINESS… [W]e are not the majority, we don’t have power,” Wing said on Twitter.

    “Caudacity” is a slang term that is used to describe audacity demonstrated by White people.

    On another occasion, Wing responded to a user who said, “I am exhausted by 99% of the white men in education and 95% of the white women. Where can I get a break from white nonsense for a while?”

    Wing responded, “If another Karen tells me about her feelings… I might lose it…”

    As a result of these tweets, 22 House Republicans — including some on the Armed Services Committee — requested that Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin take “immediate action” to investigate her for “egregious bias.”

    “Now Meghan takes on Hollywood over ‘Asian stereotypes’: Duchess takes aim at Mike Myers’ Austin Powers and Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill for ‘caricatures’ of Asian women ‘as over sexualised or aggressive’ in 20-year-old films”

    Not a single mention of the far more concerning numerous racist attacks upon chinese asians by black people in the USA for which I have in the past provided many videos, news videos showing this are all easy to find online.


  4. Zephir says:

    Here is your starter for 10 Meghan, a 65 year old woman attacked by black male just for being Chinese asian, with black security guards nearby watching and doing nothing, in fact, they close the door on her as she lies on the ground semi conscious.

    Head and face kicked and stamped on.

    The duke and duchess of Windsor were among the most prominent, exclusive, and newsworthy members of the “international set” of socialites and celebrities. For decades their lives consisted largely of traveling, entertaining, and being entertained. In 1956 the duchess of Windsor published her autobiography, The Heart Has Its Reasons. The duke of Windsor died in Paris on May 28, 1972, and the duchess continued to live at her Paris home in declining health and increasing isolation. At her death in 1986, according to her husband’s request, she was buried beside him in the royal cemetery at Frogmore, near Windsor Castle.

    “Police have arrested 54 people after environmental protesters blocked roads in central London.

    The Metropolitan Police said 54 protesters were arrested on suspicion of wilful obstruction of the highway on Tuesday during a fourth day of demonstrations in Westminster.

    They remain in custody at various police stations in the capital.

    Just Stop Oil said 60 supporters of its group “disrupted traffic in Westminster today…in a row to demand an end to new oil and gas”.

    Some further info for the thick as shit kidults protesting:

    The main use of petroleum wouldn’t surprise you at all. About 50 percent of the oil we use goes into making gasoline. In fact, about 70 percent is used for transportation in general. But oil and its byproducts also go into making a whole host of other products that you might not expect.

    Let’s look at the 10 most surprising.

    1. Chewing gum
    That’s right. Sorry if you just spit your chewing gum out in surprise, but yes, it contains petroleum. Ever wonder where that soft, chewy quality comes from? Partially from oil. Most gum wrappers just mention a “gum base” when listing ingredients. That base includes waxes, petroleum, stearic acid, glycerin, lanolin and other components. So the next time you stop at the gas station to fill up and grab a pack of gum, now you know that you and your car are enjoying a similar fossil-fuel-based treat.

    2. Sports equipment
    Sports today wouldn’t be the same without petroleum. Modern golf balls, golf bags, footballs, football cleats, artificial turf, basketballs, tennis rackets, skis, soccer balls – all made, in part, with petroleum in one form or another.

    3. Lipsticks
    Pucker up – lots of lipsticks are made with petroleum. Paraffin wax is often used to give tube lipsticks their shape and help provide smooth application. Paraffin wax is a white or colorless soft solid derivable from petroleum, coal or shale. Lipsticks are not alone in their use of petroleum-based paraffin wax – a long list of products including candles, candy coatings and paintballs all use paraffin wax.

    4. Dentures
    Grandpa’s dentures just got a little creepier. Modern dentures use carbon-based dyes for their pigmentation. The dyes are often manufactured using coal, petroleum and vegetable resources. These dyes are FDA approved and can be similar to food colorings found in your kitchen. But if you have to choose between keeping your gums a healthy pink by flossing or by getting a fake set colored with fossil fuels, go with flossing.

    5. Toothpaste
    After reading the previous item on the list, you’ve decided to double-down on your oral care. Guess what, toothpaste manufacturers often triple-down on their use of petroleum. Poloxamer 407, derived from petroleum, is a substance that allows oil-based ingredients to be dissolved in a water-based solution. Toothpaste also uses dyes made from petroleum – D&C Yellow #10, D&C Red #30 and FD&C Blue #1 are all produced from petroleum or coal sources.

    6. Guitar strings
    Most modern guitar strings are made of nylon, which is made from petroleum. Fun fact: Nylon was first produced on February 28, 1935 by Wallace Carothers at DuPont’s research facility. Carothers was searching for a silk replacement, which had grown scarce during wartime.

    7. Perfume and cologne
    Synthetic chemicals like petroleum are often used by perfume and cologne manufacturers to “bring out lasting scents and cut down on expenses.” The petroleum locks moisture, along with the scent, onto the skin. Perfumes aren’t alone in using petroleum-based propylene glycol – it can be found in many other products – antifreeze, shampoo and paint to name a few. Warning: just because they all contain petroleum, they are not interchangeable. Shampoo will not keep your pipes from freezing and paint is not going to get your hair clean.

    8. Deodorants and antiperspirants
    Apparently the two major things many of us do to smell good both involve spraying or rubbing fossil fuel onto parts of our body. Like perfume and cologne, deodorants and antiperspirants commonly use propylene glycol. The petroleum-based material is a cheap way to soften products and make application easier.

    9. Contact lenses
    The synthetic polymers that make soft contacts malleable and comfortable to wear are made with petroleum. These polymers also allow oxygen to permeate the lens, a critical function for the wear-ability of contact lenses.

    10. Fishing
    Fishing as many people know it would be very different without petroleum. Petroleum plays a part in almost every aspect of fishing – the lures, the poles, life vests, fishing boats, and ice chests to keep your fish (and/or beer) cold. Even that terrible nylon hat with the lures attached to it is made from petroleum.

        Not to mention vast amounts of drugs and medications that our NHS heroes use and sometimes even prescribe to patients.
        Where else do the organic chemical raw materials come from in the quantities needed if not petrochemical?

      My (literal) watershed with the environmental activist brigade was being involved in delivery of water bottles by 4×4 to areas cut off by floods.

      To cut a long rant short I was involved in a conversion with one upset about the vehicles and cargo packaging.

      They seemed to feel such things should be banned, but after a few immediate realities were pointed out moved to them being produced only as required as necessary.

      Turnaround times, investment realities, economies of scale, etc do not seem to exist in the Zil Point Empty spaces where brains are usually located.

    BBC on message with the opposition to possible curbs on inflation protected benefits.

    They announce that the benefits bill ‘costs the government’ £87 bn a year.

    No no no, BBC.
    It costs the TAXPAYER £87 bn a year and the more it goes to those who are economically inactive, the less is available for those who contribute.

        I see the BBC has woken up to Drax – some say better late than never …. I expect there is some weaseling in there somehow – or are we seeing some journalistic integrity and initiative now that kommissar Harrabin is no longer patrolling the corridors of Broadcasting House and his Green Taliban followers haven’t got a bogey man to send around / have a word with management about future program commissioning ?

          EU dragged to court for backing forest biomass as ‘renewable energy’
          By Frédéric Simon | EURACTIV

          Mar 4, 2019 (updated: Mar 6, 2019)

          A group of plaintiffs from Estonia, France, Ireland, Romania, Slovakia, Sweden, and the US are filing a lawsuit against the European Union on Monday (4 March) to challenge the inclusion of forest biomass in the bloc’s renewable energy directive.

          If they get their way, this could deprive the EU of an energy source which currently makes up close to 60% of the bloc’s renewables, more than solar and wind power combined.

      “If you tell Google that you would like to see images of ‘Black men’ the images that come up are all portrait photos of black men. Indeed, it takes more than a dozen rows of images before anybody who isn’t black comes up in the images. By contrast a search for ‘White men’ first throws up an image of David Beckham – who is white – but then the second is of a black model. From there every line of five images has either one or two black men in the line-up. Many of the images of white men are of people convicted of crimes with taglines such as ‘Beware of the average white man’ and ‘White men are bad’.”

    Black History Month…

    Students have defaced a mural featuring Rudyard Kipling’s If in a stand against his “racist” work.

    The author’s 1895 poem was painted on a wall of Manchester University’s newly renovated union building.

    But student leaders erased the work, replacing it with a piece by Maya Angelou in a bid to reverse “black and brown voices” being written out of history.

    The union has apologised for failing to consult students on its choice of poem.

    25 years of BBC lies. And they admit to one!

    The BBC has paid damages to Earl Spencer’s former head of security over the faking of his bank statements used to obtain its interview with Princess Diana.

    Alan Waller is understood to have received about £60,000, more than 25 years after Martin Bashir, the Panorama reporter, used the fake statements to gain Earl Spencer’s trust.

    As a result, Earl Spencer introduced Bashir to his sister, leading to the world exclusive interview in 1995 in which she declared that her husband – King Charles – was cheating on her with Camilla Parker-Bowles, now the Queen Consort.

    The payment to Mr Waller brings to an end a series of settlements made by the BBC to victims of Bashir’s deceit. In total, the corporation has paid out in the region of £2.7 million that includes £1.5 million to charities chosen by the Prince of Wales and Duke of Sussex.

    A report by Lord Dyson, published in May last year, found that the BBC had been aware of Bashir’s duplicity but had covered it up to protect its reputation. The Dyson review cost an additional £1.4m, bringing the BBC’s bill to a total of more than £4m to clear up the mess in the wake of the scandal. With substantial legal costs, the final cost to licence fee payers is likely to exceed £5m.

    BBC hopes he ‘can draw a line under this chapter’…


    The BBC has already paid substantial damages to Matt Wiessler, the graphic artist who was ordered by Bashir to fake Mr Waller’s bank statements.

    (1) Mr Wiessler, who was subsequently blacklisted by the BBC, received £750,000 in damages including for loss of earnings.

    (2) Alexandra Pettifer, better known as Tiggy Legge-Bourke during her stint as the princes’ nanny, was paid a reported £200,000 compensation for smears and lies spread by Bashir to gain Princess Diana’s confidence.

        Their attitude – as a wrote earlier regarding the outgoing Home Secretary – has been allowed to develop under 12 years of conservative governments. 12 wasted years …
