    Good morning all.
    I have already got rid of the tax that robs from the poor to give to the rich.
    What about the rest of you?

    Next, get rid of the useless government we have that cannot defend our borders and wastes our money.

      Today watch

      The daily recipe of Today seems to be evolving – it’s now

      1 a shortage of something
      2 an NHS crisis
      3 a direct attack on a blue labour minister
      4 green crap
      5 coloured / Muslims as victims
      6 more taxpayers money for something
      7 wimmin treated badly
      8 pro EU – bad UK/brexit story
      9 union propaganda
      10 kick trump
      11 tax paid ‘free ‘ school dinners campaign ( continuous )
      12 fuel / mortgage / travel / child ‘crisis ‘

      Each day features most of these – the BBC put up a ‘spokesman ‘ for approved campaigns – eg ‘charity workers ‘
      ‘A lefty ‘ – ‘medical ( union ) ‘ ‘former Obama employee ‘…

      There is also likely to be ‘Report Porn’

      This involves the publication of a report which took years to do and cost the taxpayer over £100 million pounds . It will be very long – with bad findings – and lots of recommendations – it’s’ existence will be gone by lunchtime – no recommendations will be implemented – lessons will not be learnt – no one will read it . If it’s really bad – eg paki Muslim Paedo race rape gangs – it won’t be published at all ….

      If you listen to ‘today ‘ you’ll hear all of this to various degrees each day …. In the end it’s just BBC propaganda dressed up as news …

      PS – occasional targets

      Pro SNP anti union
      Pro IRA Sinn Fein v Unionism
      Ambivalent plod story
      Anti countryside story

      The format is only to have on ‘one side ‘ with an easy chat for someone ‘approved ‘ and the hostile – rushed- interrupted – format applied to ‘unapproved ‘ targets …

      At the moment the blue labour target is a cretin called ‘Gavin Williamson // Oliver downing ?with braverman being given a ‘rest ‘

      But the tactic to destroy rashid soonik is to wound each of his cabinet by plan ….


      • G says:

        But later, ‘our Justin’ who is in the States reporting on the US Mid-Term Elections, closed his account by opining that Donald Trump should just ‘butt out’ and fade away. Boy do they hate Donald and, importantly, for him being the only person who will stand in the way of the Marxist/Communists like the evil BBC, taking over the US.

        I see the approach the BBC are taking to the election and its eventual results (the ‘light touch’):
        They’ve gauged that the elections will likely result in a bloodbath for the Marxist/Communists so their bias against DJT will be low-key in the knowledge that they will not wind up with too much ‘egg on face’ for any blatant and obvious bias against DJT;

        Find Republicans to interview who are luke warm to DJT for that unenthusiastic but not necessarily condemnatory opinion of him;

        Follow Republicans around and record their conversations on the door-step. Then its easy to filter out those who are pro-Trump to make it appear that the majority of voters are against him.


        • Fedup2 says:

          You kind of think ‘what’s the point ? Unless it’s our Justin reminiscing on days when he was a ‘proper’ US reporter – and seeing dumb Americans hearing BBC and thinking ‘hey that’s England right ? Churchill – the Queen – how’s she doing ?’

        The best summary of weeks and weeks of the Today running order yet published. Both accurate and, as time will surely show, utterly prophetic.


        • Fedup2 says:


          Thank you

          I listen to Today as much out of duty as habit going back to jack demanio days – but much it too much and the off switch comes into play – particularly green – colour and Islam screech every day …

          As for ‘report porn ‘
          I’m still pained by the 671? Page report of the Manchester Arena Muslim mass murder ( terrorist attack is too easy ) .

          I’m still working my way through it – but the huge continuing failures are being compared to 7/7 …. Which was the first of those sort of Islamic suicide attacks – multiples – simultaneous and on the londonistan tube at rush hour – …

          .. but I shouldn’t and cannot do detail here ….. the bigger point is – what will happen to that report ? The same applies to regular failings to social service departments – or maternity – or failed coverups by the NHS medical mafia busily killing off people by neglect or malice ….

            Another scam. There is hardly any pollution of the oceans by plastics. Plastics now biodegrade.

            Plastic are a godsend or mans ingenuity. Imagine the amount of energy one would have to use to create something made from timber or jute, to mimic the qualities of plastics in its various forms and uses. Impossible. Cost would be astronomic, and finally we would end up having to invent plastics.

    Matt Hancock ‘getting paid £400,000 for doing I’m A Celeb’
    3 November 2022, 06:08

    MPs split their time between working in Parliament itself, working in the constituency that elected them and working for their political party.


    • atlas_shrugged says:

      Paying Hancock £400,000 to get rid of him from the country is an absolute bargain. Especially considering the billions of damage he and his WEF lockup maniacs have done to the UK.

      It would be good to also use ‘Enemy of the Realm’ legislation and remove his passport so that Hancock stays out in Australia.

      If we then repeated the process with Family and Immigration judges once they were out on their three months holidays in the Seychelles then pretty quickly we could improve the UK.


      • Rob in Cheshire says:

        I’d rather let Shamima Begum back into the country than Matt Hancock.


      • theisland says:

        It looks like the Nationality and Borders Act 2022 is still stuck in the Lords. Shami et al. don’t like it mainly because they say it would make it easier to deprive dual nationals of their ‘British citizenship’ (which is obviously a good thing). David Anderson, a former reviewer of UK counter-terrorism legislation who now sits as a crossbench peer, compared recent extensions to citizenship-stripping powers as “a version of the ancient practice of banishment”.

        But there ought to be legislation to banish people (whether dual nationals or not). Just think of the many thousands of people a sensible government could get rid of – those who hate/threaten our country and its traditions, the terrorists, spongers and globalists working with foreign powers against our interests.

        Of course in practice any such legislation would likely be used against patriots and those who tell the truth.


    • Thoughtful says:

      Hancock is paid the derisory sum of just £84,144 a year he will almost certainly lose his seat at the next election and then be earning nothing at all, something most people will never have to deal with in their line of work. He has a chance here to earn 5 times his annual salary, but it will still be much less than the DG of thet BBC receives and the Governor of the Bank of England.
      You can hardly blame him for taking this opportunity .

  11. AsISeeIt says:

    The UN, huh, yeah, wot is it good for…? edition

    It was Edwin Star and later Frankie Goes To Hollywood who each used to ask of their audience what they thought the best use of war? And each would offer their own personal two penn’orth that they imagined the answer to that question was absolutely nothing.

    One can only imagine what those peaceful folk of our prior generations would have thought of the on-going proxy war about which our politicians of all stripes are so keen and about which the UN is apparently deathly quiet.

    Call me naive, but I thought the main point of the UN was to preserve and persue world peace.

    Here we go: The UN has 4 main purposes… (Welcome to the United Nations):

    To keep peace throughout the world; To develop friendly relations among nations; To help nations work together to improve the lives of poor people, to conquer hunger, disease and illiteracy, and to encourage respect for each other’s rights and freedoms; To be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations to achieve these goals – lots of talk thereabouts of peace not war but no mention of climate change and yet the UN these days brings world leaders together for little else than to talk about climate change.

    The UN meanwhile is lauded by our BBC for its efforts in this arbitrarily adopted sideline of theirs: World leaders will discuss tackling climate change at the COP27 UN summit in Egypt, which kicks off in earnest today

    Stephen Daisley in the Spectator was a rare voice thinking along similar lines, way back in February 2022: What is the point of the UN? It does not exist to stop wars. It exists to hope that wars are stopped… When all this is over, we will have to hold a grown-up and perhaps very difficult conversation about the United Nations… – he frets how one fifth of the Permanent Security Council went to war. What he doesn’t seem to acknowlege is that three fifths were well up for a proxy war. One being the US and Britain and France being US proxies in the proxy war.

    If Paraguay fancies a tussle with Uruguay or Cameroon likes the idea of taking a chunk out of Gabon then the UN might talk and even do something about peace. As far as the Ukraine war is concerned the UN is a busted flush.

    This from the Spectator article brought a smile: In a session of the Security Council held overnight, António Guterres, the UN Secretary-General, made a direct plea to the Russian dictator in the way only a boomer could: ‘I have only one thing to say, from the bottom of my heart: President Putin, stop your troops from attacking Ukraine. Give peace a chance.’ Trade Mark John Lennon.

    So the UN buries its head under the duvet and says gosh, it’s getting warm around this planet.

    Of course the explicitly Left-leaning press love it and suddenly, you’ll note, despite the cost of living crisis, the fantabulous magic money tree is back: Revealed: UK and US failing to pay ‘fair share’ of $100bn climate fund… ‘The money is there… its a question of political will’ (Guardian) – methinks the supposed cost of living crisis isn’t yet biting hard enough, if you’e one of those people who read that headline and agree with it.

    As we often find these days, the supposedly Right-leaning press are in virtual lockstep with those on the Left: Britain opens door to climate reparations (Telegraph) – no wonder Liz Truss had to go in what our friends on the left might once have termed a very British coup.

    You might imagine that the FT had a better grip on the subject of economics, afterall it is their specialist subject and a simple starter for ten was that corporations don’t print cash (that’s a State privilege) instead they have to charge their customers to create an income and these days their naughty top hat and spats wearing investing shareholders are largely little peoples’ pension-holding institutions: US hatches plan for companies to pay for switch from fossil fuel energy (FT) one way or another the consumer will pay.

    The FT headlines read pinker than the Morning Star these days: Marx goes Manga as capitalism struggles; ‘Loss and damage’ on COP27 agenda; Steelmakers seek State aid; FTSE100 chief executives’ pay soars by almost a quarter in bonus bonanza

    The bankers the bonuses bankers bonuses the bankers the bonuses – as the BBC Question Time skit once joked

    Pink paper in the morning – capitalism warning
    Pink paper at night – marxist delight

    Meanwhile the corporate giveaway advertising sheet Metro no doubt enjoys the lucrative Halloween consumerism – and I’m sure wouldn’t say boo to a Diwali goose – but it goes gangbusters on good old British traditions like Guy Fawkes Night: Bonfire night of mayhem… Boy, 17, dies, as fireworks launched down street… Police across Britain struggle to cope as gangs of yobs run riot – not change there then.

    Angels with dusky faces…

    The left-leaning ‘i’ newspaper relishes a nurses’ strike: Biggest-ever nurses strike ‘would hit A&E patients’ – so we ship in third world nuses to do the jobs British born people don’t want to do and then when they get here they don’t want to do those jobs at the advertised pay rates.

    And a Society feature from the ‘i’ perhaps points the way ahead for us all: Why I moved my family into a commune

    On Toady this morning it was the Knobson and Useless show. There was coverage of the COP27 followed by an interview with the Ryanair boss, Micheal o’ Leary. Clearly they were out to embarrass him, air travel bad for global warming etc etc. but o’ Leary was at the top of his game as usual and swatted them away with ease. Why can’t useless Tories be as good? I digress.

    No, the key point is that Ryanair have announced record profits and huge demand for flights which has enabled them to increase prices. Foreword bookings are strong.

    Yep. Millions of people are flying. They can afford it. They have money !!!!!!

    In other words, not at all what the BBC ‘eat or heat, cost of living crisis’ narrative formulators want to hear. They are so desperate to perpetuate their warped agenda they had a headline story on the webshite yesterday about a pub having to reduce its beer range to save money on refrigeration. Wow.

    ‘I am doing what reporters do best. Or least spend a lot of our time doing. Loitering, in the hope of grabbing a word.’

    ‘If I spot Johnson I have two questions: what are you doing here? And are you backseat driving?’


    And how much has it cost the license fee payer to have him waiting around and prepped on the off chance he can deliver those two cutting questions ?.

    • JohnC says:

      The media are by far the biggest spreaders of misinformation of anyone. The BBC are doing it on an industrial scale.

      But they mix it in with selected elements of truth which is far more sinister and an extremely dirty way to play.

      Those articles are an excellent example. Like ‘Panorama’, that ‘investigation’ was only ever going to have one outcome. The whole thing was carefully orchestrated to get the desired ‘evidence’. Anything which didn’t fit with the ‘The Left are a little bit bad but the Right are far, far worse’ narrative was simply ignored.

      I can say that with absolute confidence because we have seen it a thousand times already in the articles they BBC run daily.

      For example, all predictions and polls tend to be in favoure of the Leftist agenda then we get ‘shock results’ when they are nowhere near the reality. I am eagerly awaiting the midterm election results to compare with what we are being told they will be.

          … sorry if this makes you feel sick or generates hatred, but why aren’t the BBC interested in Maria Ladenburge’s killer being brought to justice and why the killer did it ….

          The Trial of Hussein Khavari (murdered Maria Ladenburge) Becomes Even More Sordid {gatesofvienna.net sep2017}

          The accused entered the courtroom with shackles on hands and feet at 9:05am. First he read out loud a letter of apology, and he asked the family of the murdered Maria Ladenburger for forgiveness, Focus reports.

          “I wish I could undo everything. What I have done, I am deeply sad about that from the bottom of my heart.” (Hussein K.)

          Then he went on to recount the events of the night of the murder:

          He had been drinking with three friends and he had smoked hashish. Because he was extremely drunk, he was thrown out of the bar. At some time after that, he was on his way home. At the [river] Dreisam, the girl on her bicycle approached him.

          He kicked against the bicycle, which caused the girl to fall off. She screamed. He held her mouth shut. Then he strangled her with her shawl until she was unconscious.

          “When I saw how pretty she was, I wanted to have sex with her.” (Hussein K.)

          Apparently he thought that he had already strangled her to death. The judge questioned him concerning “sex with a dead girl,” and the offender said:

          “It didn’t bother me to have sex with a dead girl.” (Hussein K.)

          According to his testimony he was too drunk to achieve an erection, so he inserted his hand. Since he had a previous injury from a bicycle accident, he pulled her into the river to wash his blood from her body. There he left her and fled.

      The Papers
      BBC News Channel, 23 October 2022

      This programme did not meet the BBC’s editorial standards on impartiality.

      Our editorial guidelines state that “presenters, reporters and correspondents are the public face and voice of the BBC – they can have a significant impact on perceptions of whether due impartiality has been achieved. Our audiences should not be able to tell from BBC output the personal opinions of our journalists or news and current affairs presenters on matters of public policy, political or industrial controversy, or on ‘controversial subjects’ in any other area.”

      In this programme several remarks and reactions from the presenter caused a significant risk that the audience could believe opinions were being expressed on the Conservative leadership contest.

      In addition, there was insufficient counter and challenge to some of the opinions expressed by guests on the programme.

      Taken together, this meant that this edition of The Papers did not meet our editorial standards, as it gave the audience the opportunity to infer an editorial position on the part of the BBC. This does not accord with the BBC’s commitment to editorial impartiality and we have reminded staff of the Editorial Guidelines.

        Bearing in mind that the BBC’s published complaints are the tip of the iceberg , there are quite a few and they take 2 months to correct, rather than 2 hours they should take
        – They put up a graphic of how people described Sunak, it included 2 swear words.
        – Panorama claimed that Rwanda was only able to take 200 UK illegals
        when actually there is no such limit.

I imagine the brief to show “Britain in decline” went down well in the creative department. It’s the mission statement they’ve long been waiting for at W1A.

      I work on the assumption that the BBC, as a self-proclaimed racist organisation, will minimise the number of photographs of White men it uses. However, my immediate impression on seeing the new BBC design language based on red, white and black was that it kind of reminded me of something… oh, yes, now I recall – a similar colouring scheme was used in Germany between about 1930 to 1945. Dark Fascist imagery was also used by Biden during his notorious ‘set Americans against each other speech’ a couple of months ago. One wonders whether this is mere coincidence, or that the WEF globablists are simply – literally and metaphorically – revealing their true colours.

His best hope becoming President in 2024 is to have DeSantis as his Vice President with prospect of winning in 2028 and 2032. It will certainly take three terms to root out Wokism from the US government.
    I understand that Trump is thirsting for revenge and I too would certainly like to see hundreds of crooked Democrats and deep staters in prison. But he won’t get elected looking backwards . Save revenge and retribution until after the election. First get elected. Then go get ‘em.

      Dear Winston Smith from the Memory Hole Department,

      Legal definition of genocide
      Genocide is defined in Article 2 of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (1948) as “any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part1

      ; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; [and]

      forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”

      **imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group**

      They (Anti-natalists) believe humans shouldn’t have children. Who are the anti-natalists – and how far are they willing to push their ideas? {bbc.co.uk 13aug2019}

    Re my earlier post…

    A little tale I remember from my childhood especially for all those very important people attending COP27… It’s called the tale of Chicken Licken….

    “There was once upon a time a farm. The majority of the farm animals were content. Chicken Licken, on the other hand, was not pleased. Chicken Licken was a little chicken who was afraid of everything.

    Chicken Licken went to the forest one day. He came to a standstill near an oak tree.

    A little acorn fell from a tree and on Chicken Licken’s head. The acorn was unnoticed by Chicken Licken. He raised his eyes to the azure sky. “Oh no!” he exclaimed. “It looks like the sky is falling.”

    Chicken Licken ran around the tree, circling it. “The sky is falling!” exclaimed the little chick. He cried out, “The sky is falling!” “I have to notify the King about this,” Chicken Licken said. He returned to the farmyard in a hurry.

    Henny Penny sat near the hen house. Chicken Licken screamed, “Get out of my way!”
    “What’s the matter?” Henny Penny inquired. Chicken Licken said, “The sky is falling!”
    “Oh no!” says the speaker. Henny Penny remarked. “How shall we proceed?”

    “I’m going to notify the King,” Chicken Licken said.

    Henny Penny replied, “I’ll come too.”
    They raced past the henhouse and… thump! Cocky Locky was knocked out.

    “What’s the matter?” Cocky Locky inquired.
    Chicken Licken exclaimed, “The sky is falling!”
    “Oh no!” Cocky Locky said. “How shall we proceed?”
    Henny Penny remarked, “We’re going to inform the King.”
    “I’ll come with you,” Cocky Locky said.
    They ran from the farmyard.
    They raced by the duck pond. Ducky Lucky was in the water.

    “What’s the matter?” Ducky Lucky questioned.
    Chicken Licken cried, “The sky is falling!”
    “Oh no!” Ducky Lucky remarked. “How shall we proceed?”
    “We’re going to inform the King,” Cocky Locky said.
    “I’ll come with you,” Ducky Lucky remarked.
    They ran over the bridge. They arrived at an old barn. Goosey Loosey had taken up residence in her nest.

    “What’s the matter?” Goosey Loosey asked.
    Chicken Licken cried, “The sky is falling!”
    “Oh no!” said the speaker. Goosey Loosey remarked. “How shall we proceed?”
    “We’re going to tell the King,” Ducky Lucky stated.
    “I’ll come with you,” Goosey Loosey said.
    They raced by the barn. They ran into the open field. The ground was being pecked at by Turkey Lurkey.

    “What’s the matter?” Turkey Lurkey asked.
    Chicken Licken cried, “The sky is falling!”
    Turkey Lurkey exclaimed, “Oh oh!” “How shall we proceed?”
    “We’re going to tell the King,” Goosey Loosey declared.
    “I’ll come with you,” Turkey Lurkey said.
    They raced across the field. They arrived in the forest and met Foxy Loxy soon after.

    “What’s the matter?” Foxy Loxy inquired.
    Chicken Licken cried, “The sky is falling!”
    Foxy Loxy was oblivious to the fact that the sky was falling. He remained silent.
    “We’re going to tell the King,” Turkey Lurkey stated.
    “I know a shortcut,” Foxy Loxy explained.

    He led them into the woods and pointed in the direction of a hole. He said, “Down here.”
    They all went down the hole. Henny Penny inquired, “Is this where the King lives?”
    “No,” Foxy Loxy replied. “It’s the place where I reside.” “It’s also where I’m going to eat you all!”

    “Who will alert the King to the fact that the sky is falling?” Chicken Licken screamed.

    “Stupid bird,” Foxy Loxy remarked. “It’s impossible for the sky to fall.”

    Moral of the Story
    “Do not believe everything you are told.”

    These globalists, like the BBC aint Marxists, they’ve got no problem with big business and even billionaires, but they have to be 100% devoted to the cause.

      Can you tell me why people have to “Suck It Up” regards immigration when your party leaders have said the following:

      1978 … “Every country can take some small minorities and in many ways they add to the richness and variety of this country. The moment the minority threatens to become a big one, people get frightened.” – Margaret Thatcher 1978

      2012 … “Two and a half years ago, the coalition governme nt was formed, and we made a clear promise to the British public. After thirteen years of uncontrolled mass immigration, this government would reduce and control immigration.” – Theresa May 2012

      2015 … “Because when immigration is too high (no figure given), when the pace of change is too fast, it’s impossible to build a cohesive society…. And we know that for people in low-paid jobs, wages are forced down even further while some people are forced out of work altogether. … So there is no case, in the national interest, for immigration of the scale we have experienced over the last decade.” – Theresa May 2015

      Yours sincerely

      By contrast not a single police force in England and Wales registered an arrest rate of more than 20 for every 1000 white people

      We should have made it clear that this conclusion had been carried by The Independent newspaper the previous year in a wider survey of social and economic data on disparities between different ethnicities in the UK and reflected statistics from a different Government website which was now out of date.

      The most recent figures show there are four police forces with an arrest rate of below 20 for every 1000 black people.

    As you know, I have virtually given up on all things BBC, so I tend to watch things on YouTube.

    I have seen some charming cookery programmes produced by English Heritage aimed at adults.

    So when YouTube suggested English Heritage ‘Homes Through History’ films, I thought I would take a look. Firstly they are obviously aimed at children aged about 8 years of age. (Well to be honest present day 8 year olds, my history learning at that age would probably be ‘A’ level today. Going back to the film, it is Prince Edward at Eltham Palace. He is asked the emptiest of questions. Firstly Karmjeet asked how Edward would celebrate Christmas. Then we had Felix aged 10 asking, ‘Where will you spend Xmas’. Then we had Simi asking what he would have at his feast. I am not sure of Simi’s heritage but her parentage was not Anglo-Saxon. And finally we had Henry asking what happens at New Year’s Eve. I am sure that children of say Chinese or Jewish heritage could be ‘disappointed’ that they were not chosen to ask questions, but perhaps in the next film in the series. If you came from outer space, you might presume 50% of UK children are not of British Heritage but you might also presume that the children have the intelligence of 5 year olds from 50 years ago. I am not sure who the films are aimed at but their educational content is very low.

    Meanwhile I am back to either reading this site or my book.

      I watch a lot on You Tube too. I’m lucky because although no great shakes at it my hobby is woodworking and there are loads of programmes on that subject. I watch those in the afternoon and then try to do as instructed on my workbench in the garage the next morning. Keeps me happy. You Tube is a boon.
      Sadly my wife isn’t a woodworker but she wrestles with the cross word for hours on end, my head would explode if I tried to . Although back in 2015 I did get ‘ The Daring Young Man ‘ , I can’t remember the clue but in my book that was an achievement par excellence .
