    I suppose there’s one good thing about all of this changing PM’s and that is that it actually can be done (even though it was only some MP’s doing it)
    It’s a pity that people like Putin and VDL cannot be changed.
    I suppose it’s because they are all left wing and the left have all the power with most of the msm behind them and it suits the WEF and the like to have them in position.

      And all the civil servants, and all the union bosses, and all the local authorities and all the teachers and the rest…

      Luckily, Labour’s poll lead is still fantasy, so, over to you Ed Davey to see how you’re going to cope with oblivion!

    Plus key lines.

    ‘We are going to use this organisation to change the way the rest of the country thinks. We want them to see stuff they don’t like. We don’t really care if they complain.’

    ‘And once its employees realised, under Hugh Greene, that they could in fact do what they liked, the BBC ceased to be our servant and became our master.’

    ‘By sharp contrast, the BBC appears to be almost immune from punishment if it defies its own supposedly binding Charter and Agreement. It largely polices its own behaviour, or rather it does not.’

    This is the entity currently leading the charge of activists ‘demanding’ an election.

            No AFAIK although C4news was not broadcasting on TV, it was livestreaming on the internet.. and therefore counts as a broadcast and is under Ofcom rules.

            Typos are inevitable.

            The BBC of course pounces on them from those they don’t like and wave off any they make. I know. A strange if unsurprising trend from those in the comms business paid to be accurate to the tune of 20,000 professional staff elected for various traits. Who have long forgotten which way holding power to account should operate. Hugh Green DG started that reversal (tx, Mr. Hitchens).

            In the spirit of poof reading:

            “Fed, are you posting on that iPad again?”

            On the value of words, often singular, this entertained:

            https://www.latimes.com/projects/la-me-framed/#chapter1

            Rather reminded me of BBC ‘talent’ when indulged in high horsing about.

            The ‘power couple’ fit many a BBC blonde and doofus. Or a O’Brien source who says. Or a Bashir Graphic artist. Allegedly.

    I guess that us pensioners (that’s Senora O’Blene and I, together with a few friends here), will be ditched yet again, after having paid all that money over our working lives to various governments, who have mainly wasted it on vanity projects like The Dome and Hs2, and making our borders insecure, letting in foreign tribes who hate British values, allowing our army to become a depleted force, causing our police to become a woke joke, making our capital city a sh****le and worst of all, letting the disgraceful BBC get away with their blatant bias, untruths and generally distasteful rubbish where proper, real news is concerned..

    Can’t wait for the liar who eventually tells us that the Triple Lock won’t be applied – it’ll be the day we never vote Conservative again.

    Whoever is chosen as our next PM will have to be wholey acceptable to the WEF et al. Anyone who isn’t will be tortured until they resign.

    The new PM will have to:

    1. Agree to take as many invaders as whish to come by sea or air sending aircraft or ships to pick them up.

    The PM must see to it that:

    2. All invaders must be put up in good accommodation and receive private medical care far superior to the rubbish provided to the indigenous population by the NHS.

    3. Transport to a mosque of the invaders choice must be provided.
    , along with pastoral visits from fire breathing Imams

    4. The local population must be forced to comply with the wishes and desires of the invaders . There can be no exemptions on the grounds of age or gender . Families must provide any of their children that catch the eye of the invaders . Local taxi firms will arrange transport. The local police will supervise and ensure compliance.

    5. The BBC and most of the rest of the MSM will ensure thatthe inevitable allegations of bestial behaviour by the invaders receives no publicity and anyone raising concerns will be cancelled , accused of far right racism and subject to attacks until they shut up. If necessary they must be imprisoned .

    6. Any rabble rousing from GB News , particularly Steyn and Farage , must result in the station’s closure

    7. Any oblique dissent such displaying English flags , the singing of Rule Britannia must be severely punished.

    Sadly the above list of requirements is only a slight exaggeration of things we have seen over the past ten years.

    I heard this earlier and I find it troublesome…

    Telegraph columnist, the rather comely Alison Pearson, has stated that although she ardently disagrees with Penny Mordaunt, she hopes that she wins the leadership vote. Why, you might well ask.

    The answer, according to Ms Pearson, is that Mordaunt will be more attractive to the “liberal” wing of the party and “liberal” people at the general election.

    This is because she’s relatively young and has espoused “progressive” views, particularly regarding trans-women…ie geezers in frocks…

    You see, I don’t think the “trans issue” is very important to most of us. I believe most of us are more concerned about crime, dinghy dodgers and the pound in our pockets. Jessies in dresses is a fringe issue.

    As far as I’m concerned, I want a Conservative party that delivers on conservative principals. I’ve had it up to the bloody eyeballs with these liberals camouflaged as conservatives…

    If I vote Conservative I need to believe they’re going to do conservative things. Controlling immigration, not fretting endlessly about the climate, giving us a police force that are more interested in catching criminals than bending the knee to BLM or bringing cups of tea to climate protesters.

    There’s been far too much of this guff and there are plenty of other parties that will be more than happy to do the above.

    I want something different…something conservative…

    Could well lead to the end of the UK as a political Union

    Made the UK an international laughingstock

    To which I replied:

    ‘Amazing.

    You managed to avoid every single one of the reasons we voted for Brexit.

    Never mind. Back to your homework.’

    and it was quickly deleted because:

    Today

    Wow – BBC panic – the thought that nut nut could return . It spent the first 90 minutes with Tory traitors ( eg tess May s’ traitor boy David Lillington ) singing the song of Tory discord and pouring their pro socialist poison .

    But then our Justin tries the poison on a real `Tory MP – who reminds poor Justin of the MSM campaign to ditch boris .

    I’m a bit past caring about the whole thing because I have popcorn indigestion and now treat it as comedy .

    Anyway – the said Tory MP really upset our Justin by telling him a few home truths .

    Justin types can’t understand that a lot of ordinary non swamp voters just LIKE nut nut . For all his sins – he is forgiven – they don’t care what the swamp says .

    The swamp is so distant -with the London incest -that it shocks them that even the thought of nut nut returning ( to destroy more power stations ) frightens it ….

    It’s a shame decent Conservatives go on the BBC to provide fuel to support socialists but the do .

    Meanwhile no mention of Shetland and destroyed under sea cables – 2 in a week apparently – those nasty Russians ….

      Fed, it was pretty obvious that Boris was set up. You surely cannot be so blind as to not see that? The Montacutie even outed Laura K on TWatO saying something about Laura’s obsession with Partygate to the effect “I know you have been working so hard on this [story].”

      Pippa Crerar was the other journalist involved. She was at the Daily Mirror then but has since moved to the Guardian. From her wiki (usual disclaimers):
      In May 2020, Crerar revealed that Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s special adviser Dominic Cummings had broken COVID-19 lockdown rules by travelling from London to County Durham while experiencing symptoms of the disease, and that he had been investigated by police. Cummings made a statement in the garden of 10 Downing Street acknowledging his movements, but retained his position.

      In November 2021, Crerar published an article stating that a Christmas party had taken place in Downing Street in 2020, in contravention of lockdown rules. The article was followed by further articles in the Mirror, as well as content from other publications and broadcasters alleging further parties in what became known as Partygate. In December 2021, she published a photograph in the Mirror showing former Conservative London mayoral candidate Shaun Bailey at a Christmas party in December 2020. In January 2022, she published further articles on Partygate, including on “wine time” Fridays at Downing Street and a festive quiz. On January 25, the Metropolitan Police announced that it would investigate Downing Street parties during lockdown.

      Growing up in Glasgow, Pippa Crerar and Laura Kuenssberg similar ages, schooled in nearby schools, “working so hard on the story”.

      Join the dots, Fed!

              Yup : Boris is a likeable idiot who is only as good as whoever has their arm up his arse operating the mouth.

              Things went downhill when nut nut substituted hers for Cummins so Boris could have an easy life at home without her turning into a bunny boiler like she did about the sofa he spilled wine on.

      Yes – the cables are a BIG story because the represent an escalation of the conflict.

      It’s completely obvious the USA blew up the pipeline and this is Russia showing us what happens in return. As usual, we take the hit just like we do with terrorism because we stuck our neck out further than anyone else.

      But telling us the cables were Russian revenge would then admit they didn’t blow up their own pipeline so the story is being hushed. Which is the most prepostorous idea in the first place – and I lost all respect for our defence minister for saying they ‘probably did it’.

    TOADY Watch #1 – I cannot believe my ears ……..

    Did I hear right? In the 6.40 a.m. Newspaper Review and later inb conversation with Ian Blackford MP (SNP) have I just heard JustRemainIn Webb suggest that people should take to the streets to demand a General Election? If so, that is disgraceful. The Director-General should take action. The BBC are out of control.

    EU freedom of movement in action ?

    “Have you ever seen a pickpocket in action? What did you do?

    Caught one with his hand actually in my pocket, on the flight of stairs from Victoria underground to Victoria train station.

    I grabbed hold of his jacket, he shook me off (I broke my finger in the process), ran back down the stairs into the station concourse. The shouts alerted the British Transport Police who gave chase. I went to the station to make a formal report together with a witness. I was asked to wait as the Policeman needed medical attention and was currently being attended to.

    The Policeman had managed to arrest the pickpocket, and while he was getting my statement a plain clothes copper came in laughing. Apparently, he had been going to a training session and leading out of the underground he had come across a trail of credit cards. It appeared that the dip (pickpocket) had been part of a gang and his mate had ran off throwing away the cards as he ran.

    A search of the dips property found various stolen mail, some of which matched the found cards – but because they couldn’t link the dip to the cards he was only tried for the attempted theft.

    It took 4 months to get to Court, he was found guilty, sentenced to time served and then deported. His final words to his barrister were “I’ll be back in the U.K. within 6 weeks”. The barrister was shaken – his client had sworn blind that he didn’t understand English and the reason it took 4 months to come to trial was because they had needed an interpreter.”

    “Might you call people out onto the street ?”

    A question from meeshall Hussain to Rachel reeve – 0821 Friday morning .
    Again and again the BBC is challenging parliamentary democracy through street protests – and what goes with it ….
    To her credit – Rachel said she believes in ‘parliamentary democracy ‘- Rachel got the usual easy ride and got her talking points across ….

    But the ‘take to the streets ‘ line is being used again and again …
    Then switch to ‘broken Britain. ‘ – the ideal dream of the BBC …

    Today Bias

    Interview with one James Harding – former director of BBC news . He runs an outfit which has been ‘investigating ‘ the Conservative party – troubling lack of verification of applicants to join .
    Far enough .

    But where was mention of the Labour Party – which might well be as dodgy as the Conservative party – ? After all – they could get a 500 majority in a month or two …
    Silence – not mentioned …

    One for BBCOFCOM ? Maybe not ,…

    TOADY Watch #2 – Stop hiding behind that excuse, Rachel Reeves.

    Rachel Reeves MP (Lab), Shadow Chancellor, (ex-Bank of England btw) is invited on after Kevin Hollingrake MP(Con) has done an excellent job in interview with JustRemainIn Webb. Oh, that Hollingrake interview takes place after Beeoid Webb has spoken with Beeboid Mason. I don’t know why the BBC bother with inviting contributors onto the TOADY Programme. Why don’t they just talk among themselves. Save studio engineer time and money: why not make the TOADY Presenters redundant and put up an omni-directional microphone above the BBC water cooler and coffee station?

    Meanwhile HarshMistress Mishal has a cosy chat with Rachel Reeves MP, Shadow Chancellor although she does press Reeves a couple of times about Labour plans and their manifesto. Rachel Reeves had already run through a list of how bad it was for the people of Britain. She then hides behind the “We don’t know the Treasury figures now. Until the Election is called Labour will not have access to the Treasury figures.” Had I been interviewing Reeves who was now hiding behind the excuse “We will publish our Manifesto when the General Election is announced” I would have said: “What you said about how bad it was for the people of Britain is just untrue then? You don’t really know.”

      I think Rachel ( I worked at the Bank of England ) Reeve is about the best they’ve got – mind u – I wouldn’t boast too much about the Bank of England judging by real inflation heading beyond 20% – double the official figure .

      Any way – as I reported contemporaneously she did not join in the ‘take to the streets ‘ BBC mantra .

      If there was a Home Secretary – instead of Grant Useless Shaps – there would be a phone call to the BBC DG suggesting the bbc avoid encouraging riots / insurrection …

        Fed, Reeves is certainly ‘better’ than her predecessor whose name I have forgotten. But that should be an important clue as to what was going on with the markets. Nothing to do with the ‘mini-Budget’ but everything to do with the BoE’s MPC being dilatory on purpose.

        Both Boris and Truss should have realised that they cannot trust anyone ‘outside’: Treasury, Media, Whitehall, Bank of England, NHS, Universities, Academics, SAGE, Mayors, devolved First Ministers, etc.. All carry a grudge against a Conservative Party led Government with a majority, either for the EU Referendum and its result or for Socialist doctrinal & dogmatic reasons.

        Littlejohn in the Mail points out that Shapps has given succour to the ER mob by sending hundreds of millions to left wing councils so they can virtue-signal by closing roads and opening up cycle lanes that nobody uses.

        I’d not thought about him like that before but it certainly hits the nail on the head.

        Perhaps he’ll be giving free bikes to all the vulnerable refugees escaping from France.

    Remember Boaty McBoatface.
    Where the public were allowed to vote on the name of a new research ship.
    The British public like this type of choice and it was no surprise that it won by a large margin.
    Of course it wasn’t allowed because the powers that be didn’t want it.

    I think a lot of people voted for Boris because he didn’t seem like a proper politician and looked like he would be a good laugh. Sort of a Boaty McBoatface effect.

    Now that he’s back the blue labour top dogs are scared stiff he will win again.

    I honestly think that if whoever wins or gets the most votes was put up in a public vote against Larry the Downing street cat that Larry would be voted in as the next Prime Minister.

    After all, he couldn’t do a worse job.
