    “Suella Braverman told Kent at ‘breaking point’ over migrant care”
    It is now time to defend our borders by force because we are being invaded by robbers and criminals. So far, our supine Tory Government has proved useless in defending us!
    Shortly, the The Tories will ‘do a runner’ and another General Election beckons.
    The Tories will try the old chestnut by waving the bogeyman of Lefty Labour Infront of our eyes to scare us . I hear the disaffected Tory supporters saying that they will just not vote ? But remember, that there are other parties – UKIP and The Reform Party (The Brexit Party).

    The prime minister believes expletive-laden text messages sent by Sir Gavin Williamson to a colleague are “unacceptable”, No 10 has said.

    A series of messages sent by Sir Gavin to ex-chief whip Wendy Morton were published on Sunday.


    When Morton insisted it was “not the case” that political opponents were being excluded, Williamson replied that it looked “very shit”.

    He added: “Also don’t forget I know how this works so don’t puss [sic] me about.” Williamson served as chief whip himself under Theresa May’s premiership.

    “It’s very clear how you are going to treat a number of us which is very stupid and you are showing fuck all interest in pulling things together,” the messages read. “Don’t bother asking anything from me.”

    Another read: “Well let’s see how many more times you fuck us all over. There is a price for everything.”

    Morton is said to have cited the messages from Williamson in an email to the party on the day before Sunak was elected leader. She is also said to have informed the cabinet office and accused Williamson of “bullying and intimidation”.

    “Why is it ‘racist’ to call invaders invaders and an invasion an invasion?”

    Just seen on BBC News a BS piece about immigrants fixing up the Kennet and Avon canal. Looked like a right propaganda piece where they got an Iraqi, Afghan and couple of others to paint for 2 minutes whilst being filmed.

    The BBC didn’t show the white people who have been maintaining the canal for decades though.


    • MarkyMark says:

      Train them and send them home to paint canals in Afghanistan?


      Bacha bāzī (Persian: بچه بازی, lit. “boy play”;[1] from بچه bacheh, “boy”, and بازی bazi “play, game”) is a slang term used in Afghanistan[2][3] for a custom in Afghanistan involving child sexual abuse by older men of young adolescent males or boys, called dancing boys, often involving sexual slavery and child prostitution.[4] Though outlawed, bacha bazi is still practiced in certain regions of Afghanistan.[5][6][3] Force and coercion are common, and security officials state they are unable to end such practices and that many of the men involved in bacha bazi are powerful and well-armed warlords.[7][8][9]

      During the Afghan Civil War (1996–2001), bacha bazi carried the death penalty under Taliban law.[10] Under the post-Taliban government, the practice of dancing boys was illegal under Afghan law, but the laws were seldom enforced against powerful offenders, and police had reportedly been complicit in related crimes.[11][12] Despite international concern and its illegality, the practice continued under the post-Taliban government.[13][14]

      A controversy arose after allegations surfaced that U.S. government forces in Afghanistan after the invasion of the country deliberately ignored bacha bazi.[15] The U.S. military responded by claiming the abuse was largely the responsibility of the “local Afghan government”.[16]

    “COP27: Jailed activist Alaa Abdel Fattah begins ‘water strike”
    “His sister, Sanaa Seif, has warned that her brother’s hunger and water strike may mean he could die before the end of the summit.”
    More BBC BS and propaganda.
    His choice to stop !
    Its ok for him pontificate about ‘global warming’ when sitting in the warm sun while we have no heating ?
    Its just the same as the criminals crossing the English Channel. They put their ‘own’ lives at risk !


  6. Thoughtful says:

    Daily Mail comment on Ed Daveys stupidity removed for the number of complaints about it, eight minutes later reinstated because there was nothing wrong with it, and the Left are employing bots to automatically complain about comments which are critical of them!

    Meanwhile for those who didn’t bother to bookmark the link to the website which shows snow and ice cover, take a look at it again remembering that the speed which snow cover advances over Russia towards Europe can (note not is) be a sign of a cold Winter to come.


    Russia is now almost completely covered by snow

        Ed will get full bbc support, because family ties.

        There are a handful of vaguely competent MPs qualified to grasp the issues, scattered on all sides.

        Most are preening, posing, brain donor tv studio addicts like Pede Jr.


        • Up2snuff says:

          Minor correction, Guest: there are two Jrs in the Milipede family, think you mean Miliband Minor. Miliband Major is off in the USA (or maybe at COP27?) probably working out how he can extract money from the UK to feed the starving amidst demands to shake down the Sharmers at COP and the-cost-of-living-crisis in the UK.

    So the ‘friendly fire’ (ie. from your own side) continues for the Conservative Party and is reported by the LeftyLibbyMedia, incl. the BBC, with some glee. They are delighted that at present the Conservative Party in Parliament is even more divided or riven by factions than the Labour Party. Wendy Morton MP, a Party Whip, is the culprit this time. MPs are potty mouthed. Who knew?

    Poor old Rishi – he has a big job on his hands.

    So Biden is to send nuclear missiles to Ukraine.

    Total idiocy from a demented lunatic.

    It’s been nice knowing everyone on here!

    • StewGreen says:

      @Digg big claim there with no evidence
      Kind of thing a Russian propaganda site would make

      Biden media say
      “Joe Biden’s top national-security adviser engaged in confidential conversations with top aides to Vladimir Putin in an effort to reduce the risk of a broader conflict over Ukraine and warn Moscow against using nuclear or other weapons of mass destruction”

    Leicester riots : HJS report conclusions
    I posted the links to the report but here’s the highlights



    • MarkyMark says:

      1985 … Ahmadis suffer vicious persecution around the world. The main source of fuel for that persecution is in Pakistan, but what happens in Pakistan does not stay in Pakistan.

      I know that from my experience in the Yorkshire market town of Batley. In August 1985, when I was 11 years old, my parents organised an inter-faith meeting in the town hall. It was interrupted and disturbed when, according to West Yorkshire police, more than 1,000 extremists, led by Pakistani hate preachers funded by the Pakistani state, were bused in from around the country. The mob brutally attacked my English mother and my father, a dermatologist; my eldest brother and I; and a Welsh Ahmadi schoolteacher who was with us. My first cousin, a GP, was by chance driving through the market town that day. He saw the mob and saw his family and friends being attacked, so he stopped. He was recognised, pulled from his vehicle and savagely beaten up.

    I’m a celebrity tells us all we need to know about the veracity and truth of TV bigwigs…

    A contestant who chained a F buddy to “deal with him” on the contestant side and a convicted Drink Driver as one of the shows presenters.

    How the hell do they square that?


  16. StewGreen says:

    I flipped to BBC 4 around 10pm and a voice was saying
    “The difficult questions of *reparations and race* have still not been resolved”
    I thought, here we go another racebaiter
    but when I checked, it wasn’t
    it was a Yentob doco with South African artist William Kentridge, and he appears to white.

    The topic of reparations and race does have relevance in South Africa.
    It’s good to have equal opportunities now, but beyond that its very complicated with all the racial groups and two different brown groups.
    As ever it’s not just a case of “white man bad” as there were tribal wars too .. also black gangs against black people, Winnie Mandela etc


    • Sluff says:

      I’ve reckoned for a long time that the ANC strategy is to keep poor black people poor, and largely uneducated, and then continue to blame their poverty on the old whities. One day enough blacks will realise they have been sold down the river, but whether they will have the gumption to vote DA is another matter.

      I realised the above when our black game reserve driver, with whom we got on well, took us past her ‘community’ I.E township. Not a bad one, brick houses. But after thirty years of ANC rule, they had not even provided a bit of tarmac road to link it to the main road and she had to use a deeply rutted dirt track.

      Free secondary education would also help.

      For the avoidance of doubt I would add that ‘blacks’ and ‘coloureds’ are accepted terms in SA, which must be awful news for the British left wing race baiters.

    Standoff as Italy stops male migrants from disembarking rescue ships
    ‘Rescue charities brand the actions of Italy’s new right-wing government ‘illegal”

    Jeez. Charities ‘branding’ a ‘right-wing’ government ‘illegal’. What kind of foundation is that for a front page headline ?. Another BBC article which declares it’s bias from the very start and doesn’t let off.

    I can barely stand to read this left-wing agenda-based tosh any more. All I do is get a rough idea of the tone then have a look who wrote it.

    Sure enough, here she is:
    Yet another quota clone – who probably cries for a week if her goldfish dies – pushing the BBC’s anti-right agenda.

    It’s now relentless.

    Peter Hitchens 20 Oct 2022
    : Why I refuse to celebrate 100 years of the saggy, self-satisfied, wholly biased media monster that is the BBC

    The great change came in the era of Hugh Greene, director general from 1960 to 1969.
    He destroyed Lord Reith’s respectable, Christian and socially conservative organisation,
    … He said
    : ‘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 day by day, programme by programme, his desire became reality

    The Charity Commission has launched a statutory inquiry into the Saint George Educational Trust over a host of issues
    The Charity Commission has frozen the accounts of a religious charity over issues including potential links to an extreme right-wing organisation
    I wonder if it Italian connected cos 25 years ago they had similar claims cos it turned out a trustee had been sentenced in absence on claims he was in a fascist terrorist group. who bombed 85

    Italian tweets talk about Roberto Fiore and friends using to fund anti-vaccine association Vicit Leo
    Also an antifa account said SGET is active on Telegram and Facebook in calling for “all Catholics to stand shoulder to shoulder with anti-lockdown protestors”.

    Hmm if a religious org promoted vaccines and lockdowns it wouldn’t be sanctioned.
    But I guess someone has complained is shouting far-right links
    which are not about today but rather an Italian conviction Fiore has from 35 years ago

    The BBC live blog for the USA election:

    Just to check my barometer is still accurate, I went to this blog with the intent to see the first thing the BBC tell me about the campaigns for the election. I would not skip through and cherry pick : I would take the first two reports for each.

    ‘At a Republican rally in Scottsdale, 80’s power ballads blare out at a level that makes you reach for ear defenders and people shout at each other because it’s the only way to communicate. As they await their candidate for governor, former news anchor Kari Lake, the crowd stands to pray and pledge allegiance to the flag. It feels more like a call to arms than a call to vote.

    Republicans who take to the stage mock the Democrats “hallucinations”. Both Kari Lake and the Republican Senate candidate Blake Masters say they’ll declare war on what they call “the invasion” at the border. Lake says President Joe Biden is solely responsible for the influx of drugs which is killing America’s children. One man stands and shouts “that is not true, you’re a fraud”, before being removed. She says, of the protestor, that “he’s been brainwashed by the radical left”.’

    Now the Democrats:

    ‘At a Democratic event in Tucson the music is much more mellow in a room a fraction of the size filled with a fraction of the number of people. There is an air of determination, but also innocence as the small crowd chants “Katie, Katie!” as they await their candidate for governor, former social worker and current Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.

    Both Katie Hobbs and the Democratic candidate for Senate Mark Kelly say they will fight for the rights of women and workers as they face the removal of their right to an abortion and the impact of inflation and climate change.’

    A completely different tone. Just like when they interviewed Truss and Starmer. That’s how they ease their agenda into peoples opinions.

    The one part which stood out to me was this:
    One man stands and shouts “that is not true, you’re a fraud”

    That’s not a random person with a conscience. Thats a left-wing saboteur who was gone there for that single reason : to make news for the likes of the BBC to report. A dirty trick.

    So then I just scrolled down the list and the next two headlines were:

    ‘Biden promises to protect women’s right to choose’

    Followed by:

    ‘Do Georgians trust Herschel Walker?’
    And I discover – exactly as expected – Walker is a Republican.

    It’s relentless partisan bias. It’s just ridiculous. Where are OFCOM ?.

    • JohnC says:

      The Left are stupendous hypocrites. There is no limit to how low they will stoop – as maxi demonstrates on a regular basis with his spiteful trolling.

      I find his bitterness a useful reminder of what they are really like when they can hide behind a mask.


  22. JohnC says:

    Twitter users jump to Mastodon – but what is it?

    lol, the BBC are giving people detailed instructions on how to leave twitter.

    Nothing has changed on twitter yet – but the Left are leaving because they hate Musk and the free speech he promises. But I honestly believe they do not even admit that reason to themselves. That’s the power of the Leftist ideology. They don’t even realise what complete hypocrites they are.


  23. JohnC says:

    I just had a lesson on how the BLM anti-white Leftist racism has infiltrated every aspect of society when I looked on google for how to extract a person from a photograph with photoshop.

    Every single example I found was using a black person. 10% of the Western population at most. The hypocrisy of the Left never ceases to amaze me : it would be called out as racism were it the other way round.

    The dads spreading love to stop fights in school

    Here we have a video from the BBC a guy called Ben Wyatt who seems to specialise in heart-warming, Lefty empathy stories such as this.

    It’s about fat black dads patrolling a school in the USA to cheer the students up and stop them fighting.

    Firstly I ask myself why the BBC is making such videos all the way across in the USA. Why are the British licence-fee payers funding these things ?.

    Secondly I’m dumbstruck about how they can twist such a feel-good, everybody-is-nice, happy story from a situation which actually represents the collapse of society and the extreme violence of these black students.

    Perhaps a few scenes of the students fighting might have given this typical BBC empathy-based nonsense a little bit of actual context about the real world.

      There is some trickery going on cos although the new story appears on the BBC News website today as if it’s NEW news
      it’s actually taken from an old radio show that aired on 27 Sep 2022
