    Today’s BBC data unit story “MPs are VICTIMS of toxic tweets” , has apparently already started the big stealth edits
    People asked why the BBC counted calling an MP a hypocrite as “toxic”
    .. that data table has now been removed.

    The guy’s tweet has been ratioed to bits.

          • Terminal Moraine says:

            That BBC Shared Data Unit report uses Perspective AI, which is a Google project. You can try it out yourself; a quick test:

            – “Fox News are bullsh***ers” returned a score of 85.33% likely to be toxic

            – “The BBC are bullsh***ers” gives a lower score of 83.33%

            (Algorithm in this case seems weighted against BBC.) Worth remembering when they’re selling you ‘precision’ medicine based on data sold off by the NHS to DeepMind and other big tech.

      BBC Wales reporters tweeted praising the project

      When I enter the leftyverse like the replies in that thread
      I find accounts that block me , even though I have never interacted with them. eg that @Obsayxx:account
      That suggests they are using multiple accounts or using a blocklist
      Shunning innocent people and hiding from debate is a form of bullying.


    • StewGreen says:

      One of the researchers seems to explain reporters oversimplified the story
      Paul Bradshaw@paulbradshaw tweeted
      Basically the algorithms for detecting identity attacks (racism/homophobia) are not reliable enough yet, so we did not use them.

      What we were able to look at was toxicity, defined by the algorithm as “likely to make someone leave a conversation”

      Labour supporters think toxic means racist or sexist, so they are stamping all over the thread
      .. and they also believe that sneering, lying against Tories so they intimidated from replying ..is NOT toxic

      I don’t get the oil terrorist thing – when the miners were striking huge numbers were dealt with by bans and injunctions and bail conditions –
      But with a few lefty Islington types they seem to be able to disrupt at ease with plod/ the courts – doing little to stop them

      Sooner or later some will get killed by mishap or accident – on top of the innocent taxpayers trying to go about their lawful business .
      There needs to be retribution …. But we seem to live in a time where only approved laws are enforced against unapproved types …

    This now clear orchestration of public sector worker strike action led by militant trade unionists and fully backed by the corrupt bBc must present an opportunity for a second Thatcher privatisation programme.

    Start with the easy stuff….why do we need need public sector employees involved in bin lifting?

    Low skilled jobs across the sector esp. NHS… outsource the lot under commercial service delivery contracts .

  7. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    I saw a rolling news headline on tv saying 70,000 teachers, professors and the like would be striking at 150 universities.

    This averages at about 500 per university.

    Is there really so many of them. They could outnumber the students.

    Or did I misread it.

    Also, if nurses say they need to use foodbanks on a (STARTING) salary of £27,000 I wonder what they think of the majority of pensioners on the second class pension (born before 1951) which has a maximum sum of less than a quarter of that.

    BBC creaming themselves over the RCN voting to strike.
    Cue an interview with a carefully selected nurse who, shock, horror, has had to give up on payments into her pension scheme in order to keep paying her two overdrafts.

    Errr, there are quite a lot of questions not asked by the BBC, do you not think ? Not least, what is she spending her money on? It isn’t even cold yet.
    But as usual with the BBC, let not proper investigation get in the way of the desired narrative.

        It demonstrates that however much the blue labour fools pee into the NHS it will never be well received – give them their payrise by closing a few hospitals / cutting jobs – diversity managers – HR – . Sell off the car parks to raise the cash ….


        • Sluff says:

          It is I think a truism that people who receive additional or unexpected financial benefits from the government have very short memories. And those that receive them tend to keep quiet. Think furlough pay awarded to those whose work was not lost but only delayed (hairdressers, builders). You never hear a peep.

          I expect howls of anguish when the extra payments for energy prices are removed when those prices reduce. ‘The evil Tories are cutting back and hitting the poorest’ – you can predict it now, from the BBC/Labour/ Libtards/SNP.

    A proper fat chew with Kelvin McKenzie and Patrick O’Flynn over the invasion …..

    ….. the consequences of a 1000 a day coming in – and filling up the UKs hotels – without reference to local populations – is going to cause some serious – serious – civil disorder ….

    .. for all we know this may already be happening but incidents are being covered up .. but a few months down the line – it may be too much to cover up ….

    …. Our country is lost …. Lost ….


    • Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

      I heard a report that the Ramada hotel in Cheltenham was one of those being used to house the invaders. When I checked online recently, there were no reviews or ratings of stays there dated any later than December 2021, which would suggest it may have been “repurposed”. The reviews from 2021 were a mixed lot: some people were happy enough but there were some very low marks too and complaints about heating, hot water, lack of staff, quality of breakfast, etc.

      I wonder if run-down places take the relatively easy way out of accepting taxpayers’ money for housing the invaders rather than upgrading in order to retain previous customers?


      • harry142857 says:

        The Calcot Hotel in Reading closed down during covid, grass and trees overgrown early this year, now re-open to the public, well half anyway.
        The other half houses illegal immigrants, the kids riding round the car park or playing cricket, whilst the parents sunbathed in the summer on their phones, all fenced in with security outside 24/7. It was a good £120 per room before it closed.


    • theisland says:

      Steve Laws reported on the Heathrow hotels 2 days ago here and Mohammad’s journey from Iraq yesterday here, so it is good to see these stories taken up by Mark Steyn and discussed tonight.

      For updates on the ever increasing numbers of hotels being used for ‘migrants’ see tweets by @ActivePatriotUK and @LittleBoats2020. LittleBoats reckon there are 313 hotels currently being used across the country here, but there are almost certainly more and counting. Afaik they were also the first to draw attention to Albanians landing on the east coast.


  20. Fedup2 says:

    Harry / Mustapha – I’m sure a website showing all the hotels being used for invaders would be shut down by our monitors ( hi kids ) pretty soon … but you can’t conceal the consequences of blue Labour failure much longer … and it is their fault ..
    \.. they seem to have no idea as to what voters are going to do to those c words when the time comes ….


  21. Fedup2 says:

    Someone must have worked the situation by now – how many hotels are there in the UK ? How many are already occupied by invaders ? What are the next targets? Who is objecting to projected invasion ?

    I really don’t understand why those invaders are not loaded onto ships anchored in the channel and shipped off for ‘processing ‘ …

  27. BRISSLES says:

    The droning voice of Sky’s Ashish Joshi – who’s brief is always the NHS, has been interviewing nurses about their plight. I’ve yet to see him interview a white nurse. What I cannot fathom is that many of these nurses have been brought in from abroad, which begs the question that the money must have been the incentive – and now its not enough ? well, if they send home most of their earnings – which I know they do, then perhaps they shouldn’t ! because by dint we are again paying for families abroad.

    Ashish never brings that particular little gem up though in his interviews.

    Its like Kelvin and Patrick said earlier on Steyn, the calibre of journalists today, don’t investigate, they’re not curious, they don’t delve.

    It’s strange that abortion was so high on the list of issues for democrat voters. The bbc, of course are right behind this as it’s oddly tied in with wimmins rights.
    To my innocent mind, I cannot see how these precious young things will demand that we send aid to Um Bongo for Fatima and her 25 starving children, and then go off and have a termination because they don’t want to miss glastonbury. I don’t think that it’s deliberate hypocricy, more that they simply cannot see the irony of their decisions.
    The bbc, of course, see it as defending their “rights”.


  35. Doublethinker says:

    So the US polls were wrong by an enormous amount. Unusually for polls they over predicted Republican votes and under estimated Democrat votes. The voters didn’t conform to the polls . Well at least the stated number of votes cast didn’t agree with the polls.
    Until the US reforms its voting methods and makes them much more secure and fraud proof there will always be doubt , some doubts amounting to facts, that the result have been rigged.
    If all the critical ‘too close to call ‘ results fall in favour ofthe Democrats this time round , as well as last time round, there will be a distinctly rotten smell again.

    Bug-infested NHS edition

    The Daily Star may be somewhat comic-like but it does provide us with a regular masthead thought for the day. More of that later.

    Of course other titles are keen to tell us what we should think on any particular day. Most centre-right papers announce the inevitable factual news that nursing unions are planning strike action for more pay – the left-friendly corporate-PR-minded FT adds the crafty: and patient saftely alibi to the otherwise clear mercenary monetary motivation.

    You may say harsh, but one says mercenary, since although one is all for free collective bargaining, one can’t pretend hero-status and angelic devotion one moment and then the next moment roll up the sleeves on your NHS-branded scrubs and go down and dirty for a big payrise inevitably elbowing other deserving causes aside in the desperate clamour for public cash.

    Left-leaning titles inevitably play the sympathy card on the nurses behalf.

    This is why they’re striking – explains the Daily Mirror with an absolute doozy of a headline: Nurse forced to survive on patient’s leftovers – my goodness there’s some issues to parse out from that statement.

    Known only as Esther – the Mirror’s poster girl (presumably put up by the union?) looks pretty well-fed to my un-medically trained eye. Plus, happy she ain’t, she looks as though she has the right hump – as they used to say – kindly bedside manner, I think not.

    Struggle to get by. Nurse Eshter eats leftovers

    Patients’ leftovers…? What’s the official NHS call on the hygiene and transmission of infections situation on that sort of behaviour, we wonder?

    When us numpties were on our doorsteps banging our pots we didn’t realise that faint echo from afar of cutlery on china clatter was nursey busy scraping out leftover grub from dirty bowls in the hospital kitchens.

    There’s no need for that, luv.

    A recent study highlighted that up to 1 in 4 healthcare workers are overweight with the highest levels of obesity found in nurses and unregistered care workers (Nursing Notes)

    I guess that ancient larger than life Hattie Jacques caricature in the Carry On film series was on point: Ooh Matron! – the jokey Daily Star there, despite sympathy for the cause just couldn’t resist the sub Kenneth Williams exclamation: Hard-up hospital heroes decide they’d like more than a clap of appreciation – I guess we can take back all the clapping and promise never to show ourselves up doing that again?

    The Mirror is deathly straight-faced in their shroud-waving and clearly imagine they’re Little Jack Horner who has pulled out a plumb with their nurses nicking scraps claim.

    Have you finished with that, dearie? Well, I’ll just clear it away for you…. Yum yum yum!

    I thought our nurses frequented food banks for their freebies? Well I suppose needs must: Food banks crisis point (freebie Metro)

    Are food banks a sign of the crisis or are they in crisis? I’m confused.

    Returning to the Daily Star’s thought for the day: Funny how quickly some people forget what they did for us during Covid

    Au contraire, one ain’t forgot – all those TikTok dances in empty hospital corridors didn’t make themselves you know.

    Those go away sick people stay at home slogans didn’t write themselves.

    Admit it or not the public hasn’t forgotten the medical nonsense that was Lockdown either. Why else is the public getting such joy from the vicarious torture of Matt Hancock?

    Matt Hancockroach. Former health sec gets a bucket full. Where there’s muck there’s laughs: Ant and Dec enjoy Matt Hancock’s bug-infested jungle trial (giveaway Metro)

    They’ll be no proper legal trials for the Lockdown criminals – seems we’ll have to make do with bush tucker trials.

      What do MPs do?

      The UK public elects Members of Parliament (MPs) to represent their interests and concerns in the House of Commons. MPs consider and can propose new laws as well as raising issues that matter to you in the House. This includes asking government ministers questions about current issues including those which affect local constituents.



    • Rob in Cheshire says:

    What is the material difference between a Just Stop Oil cultist on a motorway gantry, often wearing a helmet, harness, and other safety climbing gear, and any number of ordinary members of the public leaning over a motorway pedestrian or road bridge?

    If the danger is of falling or dropping or throwing something at passing traffic, then surely the entire motorway network should be closed permanently. After all, ‘one accident is one too many’ and all those thousands of bridges must present a huge safety risk, yes?

    I see Joe Biden is behaving more like Joe Stalin once again, upset that Elon Musk might allow criticism of his party, and his lunatic ideology.

    He calls for an investigation into Musk’s links to foreign countries and mentions Musk is a South African immigrant (xenophobia and waycism there!) and then he also goes on to have a pop at his favourite bogeymen the Saudis (Xenophobia Waycism and Islamofauxbia there as well).

    But all of that obvious hypocrisy is ignored by the media as he calls Musk as security risk who needs to be investigated, and there is where the story falls apart, because if Musk genuinely is a security risk then the CIA and FBI both need to be investigated for gross security breaches as Musk has been launching US spy satellites via his Space X company and what the hell were they doing allowing someone who is alleged to be a security risk have anything to do with that.

    And that is how we know Joe Stalin (Biden) is lying in a most concerning manner, because he is attacking the first ammendment and using the state apparatus in order to do that. This man is unfit to be President on those grounds alone.

    Tatiana Hughes’ house in Hertfordshire should – according to its EPC – be among the most energy efficient.

    It was built in 2016 and scores 91 – a top B rating and just one point off the highest A grade.

    But despite the high score, the BBC has seen evidence that two of its bedrooms didn’t have sufficient insulation, meaning they became much colder than other rooms.

    The number of delegates with links to fossil fuels at the UN climate summit has jumped 25% from the last meeting, analysis shared with the BBC shows.

    That’s more than the combined delegations from the 10 most climate-impacted countries.

    Around 35,000 people are expected to attend the COP27 summit in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.




  43. Doublethinker says:


    UK authorities are concerned about cricket between Pakistan and India sparking another bout of sectarian violence , similar to the confrontations in Leicester in September, and so further underlining the insanity of multiculturalism.
    It may be beyond theBBC to stop the ordinary native Brits from drawing the right conclusion this time.

    Accordingly Buttler , the England captain, has been instructed to make sure his side wins the semi final against India today. The final will be between Pakistan and England at the weekend. In keeping with government policy Buttler’s instructions are to lose it , so as to stop excessive celebrations by the far right ( all three of them) which might upset certain communities.
    Buttler has asked to be indemnified by the government in the event of the match fixing coming to light.

      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.

      It is hilarious how the media are so blatant now in coordinating the same idiotic spin.

      I now have a little folder of social media URLs I check back on after a while to see how they really do impact.

      On matters Elon, it is clear that THE BBC and its media partners CNN et Al Gore are not fans, along with many others.

      Their best hope appears to be MasterMonkeySpank, hence the adored new home of old gay Beeboids and old nutty peroxide victims who appear on THE BBC a lot.

      Plus hangers on.

        The treatment of Musk now he’s bought Twitter is clear. Compare it to how little attention is ever given to Zuckerberg, Google execs or Bezos (Amazon Web Services host UK and US government websites amongst others).

        Facebook have been colluding with US intelligence to censor info, including a portal for the Department of Homeland Security to directly flag up ‘disinfo’. But none of this matters to the MSM, instead they get favourable write-ups from BBC PR assistants sorry… er, ‘technology editors’. Transparent agenda.

        — “It’s the second round of big tech lay-offs in a week – but the tone of Meta’s statement was very different to Elon Musk’s bullish defence of his decision to cut half of Twitter’s workforce on Friday.”

      I thought they were also electing the members for The House – but the entire media seems to be ignoring that completely. Seems like they don’t like it for some reason.

      This is how the BBC reported it 4 years ago when it was the other way round:

      ‘Mid-term elections: Democrats win House in setback for Trump’

    Much to the BBC disgust racist colonists England have beaten India to set up a final against the “do no wrong” country of Pakistan.
    No doubt the cricket storys will have the Yorkshire racism storys attaced the ones where the in debt through ga@@@@@g cricketer is trying to get as much money from his previous employer as possible, aided and abeted by the BBC.

      Halifax ,
      Do you have any news on the CDC enquiry into the Rafiq affair and the decision to make a public hearing which Hoggard and other strongly object to?
      Since last week it’s all gone very quiet and I know that several of the accused and some other witnesses were unwilling to appear before a public enquiry. But there has been no statement or News.

    I’ve noticed in the last few months that there seems to be a surge of elderly (white middle class) people dying around here. I live in an outlier village of a larger affluent rural village in Cheshire. We used to get an announcement once a month of a death in the community. We are now getting one a week or more. The gender seems to be mainly women but that might be because there’s proportionately more older women beyond eighty. There’s no indication of cause of death.
