  6. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    On tv they are saying that many of the ‘migrants’ fleeing the EU are going to their hotels and then just disappearing which means going to their various gangs and other criminal networks around the Country.

    I would bet that the taxpayer is still paying for this person’s empty room to the hotels who will be saying they have to keep the room free in case they return.

    Just think.
    Some hotels, already getting a hefty sum for each ‘migrant’, may be half empty but still claiming for the number allotted to them.
    All courtesy of the taxpayer. It’s not government money, it’s our money. Don’t forget, they will be getting more than the normal cost of the rooms as they can offer as much as it takes for the hotels to accept these ‘migrants’

    With all this money sloshing about I wonder who will be benefiting from it.
    Not you or me.

    I had a nice trip to Devon yesterday and back today, visited the medieval village of Dunster, then the A396 through Exmoor and never realised how beautiful Autumn can be with the sun shining through the trees.

    The M5 on the way back was not so nice, but I did comment to the wife about how lucrative this LGBT thing is becoming.

    We were cut up and tailgated by many juggernauts such as “Trans Haulage” and “East Trans” and “Trans UK Plant Haulage”.

    We were both relieved though, that they do not operate like the pig and sheep lorries with open gaps so you can see the poor sods being transported.

    It is bad enough having one pull out in front of you just as you are about to overtake without having to witness to a bunch of swarthy 6 foot hairy men in Pound Shop blonde wigs and fishnet stockings waving at you as you emergency brake.

    Imagine you are Albanian. Some bloke tells you that for a load of money you will get on a small boat to Britain, not to worry, before you’re half way across the channel rescue services will scoop you up and take you the rest of the way. You will then be taken to a luxury hotel where you will be fed three decent meals a day and given spending money. I would assume that it was all fantasy, too good to be true and the bloke was a con-man.


  10. Dickie says:

    Since there appears to be a connection to the Democrats, wonder if this will be reported by the BBC:



    • Zephir says:

      Trump called it the swamp, none of them are poor, (neither is he of course) but the difference is they will make you stay poor, they will tax you to the hilt and spend your tax money on their fantasy ideas

      BLM have made themselves very comfortable and even the sainted George Floyds family have not benefitted from the millions they have spent on themselves:

      “‘Not helping the community’: George Floyd roommates, others slam BLM in new film

      One year after the real-estate buying binge of its founder was exposed by The Post, a new documentary dives deep into the murky finances of the Black Lives Matter Global Foundation — and meets some of the people it allegedly harmed.

      “The Greatest Lie Ever Sold,” a film spearheaded by controversial conservative commentator Candace Owens, premiered Wednesday in Nashville at a screening attended by Kanye West, Ray J and Kid Rock.

      In the documentary, the Daily Wire host examines what Patrisse Cullors, BLM’s self-described ‘”trained Marxist” co-founder, did with the $90 million that her group amassed after the May 2020 slaying of George Floyd, the Black man whose cries of “I can’t breathe” set off global protests when he died under the knee of a white Minneapolis police officer.

      Cullors resigned from the national non-profit in 2021, a month after The Post revealed she had spent millions on real estate in the previous months ”



  11. Zephir says:

    And in an obvious case of cultural appropriation an English black desperately tries to copy her American counterparts in “allegedly” stealing BLM charity donations:

    “Black Lives Matter organiser who helped run demo that toppled Edward Colston’s statue is charged with fraud involving fundraiser linked to the protest movement

    Xahra Saleem, 22, will appear before magistrates in Bristol in January
    The campaigner is charged with two counts of fraud by abuse of position
    Avon and Somerset Police investigated a GoFundMe page called ‘BristBLM’
    Additional charges relate to Crowdfunder page, ‘Bristol Protestors Legal Fees’



  12. Flotsam says:

    So Saint Nicoliar decides to shake the money tree and scatter money around in the form of a “Scottish Child Payment” . I’m not sure if this is in addition to child benefit.
    The Scottish Child Payment is, as the name suggests, available only to parents or carers living in Scotland. This payment is not available in England, Wales or NI. Nice of them to spend our money on themselves, now you know why taxes are going up next week.


  13. Zephir says:

    That’ll cost someone with the catholics around there, a little like muslim breeding machines



  14. Zephir says:

    As I was perusing the “Broons” above, a rather large family, the Gaurdian gave me this :

    “The window for meaningful climate action is narrowing, but if those in power are bold enough, Cop27 could turn the tide. Guardian journalists will scrutinise and challenge with round-the-clock reporting from Egypt, where world leaders plan their next moves. With your support, we will maintain our focus on this, the most urgent issue of our time, and keep our journalism open for all to read. Support us from just £1. Thank you.”

    It does make me wonder, apart from the fact that they are not a viable business and have to go begging, “the window”
    What a load of shite.

    IF there is anthropic climate effect, IF, then it will have already undertaken a feedback mechanism, therefore far far to late to have ANY effect whatever we do

    “In ominous sign for global warming, feedback loop may be accelerating methane emissions
    Tropical wetlands, getting wetter with climate change, emerge as hot spots for heat-trapping gas

    13 Jul 20222:30 PMByPaul Voosen “


  15. Zephir says:

    You may be wondering why I associate the Broons with climate change ?

    You want 4, 5, 6 kids ? its your human right

    all down our road now couples have one car for each of them and one for their kid and how many more kids …

    Nest door, one van, one SUV, one hatchback for a couple with a 15 year old child, parking is a nightmare

    muslims have a mindset of breeding

    ask them to control their population ? hmmm,

    you want to cottrol climate change, which is debatable. start with stopping endlessly breeding.


    • Sluff says:

      The BBC have told us that the global population has exceeded 8 billion for the first time.

      But strangely it has not managed to apply this to, for example, it’s favourite global warming agenda. Or food and water shortages. Or territorial disputes. Or rising prices for commodities.

      It’s almost as if people don’t create CO2 or any demand for anything. . But only when it’s convenient not to.
      And now, over for a comment to Caroline Lucas at the Green Party.


  16. Sluff says:

    Note to government.

    ‘Levelling up’ is supposed to refer only to people in various areas and regions within the UK, and not internationally to people from Albania, Iran, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Somalia etc.

    London loses position as most valuable European stock market

    An absolutely absurd story to open a HYS on – but the BBC have done it. And of course for one reason : their anti-Brexit agenda.

    The comments are the usual child-like spiteful student whinging – but this comment and it’s ‘upticks’ really stood out to illustrate just how far away from general public opinion how partisan BBC and the group of people who it appeals to have become:

    ‘It was a massive success for the reason most wanted it to be a success, ie to get ourselves out of the increasingly Federalist, unaccountable, corrupt EU where we were not 100% in control of our own democracy. There were things we as a sovereign nation could not control & to many that was wholly unacceptable. I count that as a huge fundamental success. Everything else will sort itself out.’

    This comment got 739 upvotes and 2,577 downvotes.

    This kind of result should set alarms bells ringing at OFCOM – but I expect they all downvoted it as well.

    And the rest of us are being forced to pay them to do it.


    • TrickCyclist says:

      If you’re in masochistic mood and want to see more of “the usual child-like spiteful student whinging” about Brexit, have a look at the video below or watch it on YouTube and read the comments.
      It’s the most recent effort by a pair of divvies called Larry and Paul, I’ve never heard of them but one is called Paul Dunphy of whom the link below says; “Together they have hosted radio shows across the BBC since 2012” – what a surprise.
      While I resent giving such tossers the time of day, for something even more pathetic try their YT video “The Met Police vs Protestors,” it can truly be said that they hold up a mirror to society, in that what they say is the reverse of reality! The deeply unfunny police sketch ends with them (as coppers) scrambling to respond to a protestor who may be about to hold up a placard in front of Churchill’s statue, FFS!


      • JohnC says:

        I have noticed it’s a fact of life that the same brain process which makes people Left wing also makes them shallow, spiteful, quick to get nasty and completely without any sense of humour. Like all those teachers you remember but didn’t know they were left wing at the time.

        I particularly like the comment:
        ‘This would be hilarious if it weren’t true!’

        The video does not have one single moment of wit or humour.

        The Left like to laugh at ‘groupthink’ topics because they don’t really know what they should laugh at. Like when Baldwin did Trump impressions : it wasn’t funny, they were just laughing because he made fun of someone they hate. And when he was particularly offensive, they would applaud.

        The bottom line is that these people do not relate well to the real world and need to feel secure in a safe environment. That’s why so many work for the government.


  21. Zephir says:


    “This introductory chapter provides an overview of Idi Amin Dada, the president of Uganda between 1971 and 1979. More than forty years after his overthrow and eighteen years after his death, he remains a key point of reference in Ugandan culture and politics. Elsewhere in the world, his name has become synonymous with brutal and psychotic African dictatorship. In many of the popular and sensational texts, a racist anthropology relates Amin’s atrocities to the supposed traditional ways of the Kakwa tribe; in some of the more academic work, his origins link his actions, through deep historical roots, to aspects of Nile Valley history and the wider North-East African past. Most Ugandans and historians of Uganda agree that his rule, covering eight years in the 1970s, was a crucial period in the collapse of the Ugandan economy and society, though the process worsened after his departure. The chapter then explains that Amin’s image as an icon of evil came about because he fits, almost parodically, the long-standing stereotype of African masculinity as intrinsically violent, irrational, autocratic, and dangerous.”


    Dass someone else faul then innit


  22. JohnC says:

    Just when you think the claims by Ukraine can’t get more ridiculous:

    COP27: War causing huge release of climate warming gas, claims Ukraine

    ‘It also claimed precious animal and plant life has been destroyed.’

    And here is the BBC employee reporting it: Georgina Rannard

    I’m watching the civilised world slowly crumbling around me – and it’s not Russia doing it.

    My favourite bit of the article though was:
    ‘The minister also said his delegation at the climate summit does not plan to meet Russian representatives in Egypt. “If we do accidentally, we won’t talk to them,” he said.’

    Beautiful work Georgina. Worth every penny it has cost to send you there.


    • Zephir says:

      It is indeed informing how the antiwar organisations are suddenly silent, the far left so used to protesting agianst war, and similar anti violence are now silent unless flying Ukranian flags…hmm how strange


      • JohnC says:

        What happened to ‘Stop The War’ ?.

        I see they are organising some protests – but now they are being completely ignored by the likes of the BBC.

        It makes you realise just how little the Left care about anything or anyone when it’s not in their agenda.

    Will somebody please educate this BBC idiot and tell him Musk has taken over Twitter to stop people like HIM banning everyone else.

    Of course I’m sure he knows this. But he just so full of spite, he wants to put Elon down to the audience and doesn’t care if he lies to do it.

    Yes I recall Radcliffe and his opinions on music

    bbc to the hilt all he needs is a good tan and job for life

    considers Black Sabbath as the epitomie of rock music …and starting it all off


    ““I think it was 1971 and I bought it for £1, second hand off a guy at school called Pete. My recollection is that my dad went halves with me – so 50p each. I’ve got a lot of time for Black Sabbath. It’s almost impossible to overstate their influence on rock music”

    an expert, obviously, or a bbc expert, almost impossible to understand why he’s employed to share this massive insight with us.


    • Scroblene says:

      Reminds me of a very old, (therefore funny) bit in ‘Private Eye’, when Pseuds Corner had a quote from an interview with Mick Jagger by some hip journo…

      Mick Jagger – “Yeah, it gets into their brains and influences them”!

    Slightly avoiding today – but just caught a ritual exchange between meeshalll and some moaning NHS type (£200k).

    They were singing the shortage of staff song . But what is never explained – is how such an over funded organisation – with huge numbers of managers – fails to train enough staff to keep the thing going .

    After all – they have ‘royal colleges ‘ – centres of excellence – fully professional professionals –
    Yet the NHS is continually disfunctional. Maybe the Diversity Managers can help – if they are not on strike .

    Why is it the governments fault ? Is it responsible ? I don’t know the answer . But the song is played so often I just hum the words .
    Me – I’d privatise as much as I could – sell off the best hospitals – contract the staff to be fully employed by the NHS – not play the ‘private ‘ and ‘agency ‘ game and make everyone using it pay something .

    Strikes would be banned ,

    Those going private should get tax relief for not using the NHS

    Don’t forget to clap.


    • Scroblene says:

      I was discussing the way the MSM are portraying the NHS with my doctor the other day, and what he described – and could prove, was that even during the hiatus of the covids, they managed the group practice functions to within 90% of a standard period, and that the majority of appointments were kept, with the online issue still being made a scapegoat.

      Yes, I know we’re talking about a country practice, but I dread to think how difficult it is in inner cities, so must count me and Senora O’Blene incredibly lucky.

      The BBC and a lot of the MSM will still drag the NHS down to the lowest denominator and try and dig out the dirt wherever they can, even try to lie if need be, and the demoralisation is complete!

      The core problem of over-manning at admin levels with spurious new ‘posts’ like ‘Diversity Manager’ which are meaningless, never seems to get investigated, but with the calibre of what’s left of the beeboid staff, it’s not really surprising!

      I think they are just waiting for this, and the script is already written

      the sad thing is, if it happens here .there would be no actual difference

    • JohnC says:

      It would be very interesting to see a graph of who won versus the delay in announcing the result.

    The Corrupt Games start in Qatar on Sunday. Many of us
    in football know that over the years they have also been known
    as the” bent ” games. I ,myself have at one time helped FIFA’S
    compliancy unit. Actually FIFA itself has been like an alcoholic
    being in charge of a brewery.
    in 2002 when the “games” were in Japan and South Korea.
    FIFA wanted to make sure that one or both of the home nations
    could get as far in the competition as possible, for financial reasons. So they
    employed a certain referee Byron Moreno to do their bidding.
    In the most infamous match in World Cup history. Moreno did
    everything possible and impossible to make sure that South
    Korea beat Italy, which they did.
    BUT there was karma for Moreno . A couple of years later he was banned from refereeing games in his own country Ecuador
    for allowing a match to be played for an extra FOURTEEN
    minutes until the team he had “invested” in to win scored
    a winning goal. He finished up going to jail for 5 years in the
    USA for heroin smuggling, There are some stories I cant tell you about because I would finish up in Bushey Cemetry!.
    So what has all of this got to do with the BBC? you may ask.
    Nothing really other than the fact that the priorities for the BBC
    will be for seeing that we all see England prostrating themselves
    to the BLM once again. I expect that Ivan Toney the great
    Brentford centre foreward was not picked by the third end stop
    at the end of the northern section of the piccadilly tube line in
    London , because he failed to impress Southgate with his
    knee bending when called up to the England squad for a
    couple of games earlier in the year. That was probably why he didn’t have even have five minutes on the field.
    The BBC will make the games as inclusive as possible. Ok
    the womens rugby world cup might of been the bigger event.
    But apart from Gabby Logan who knows her stuff. We will have
    to see a plethora of women football “experts” commentating and
    being pundits. Yes some women do know a lot about football.
    But apart from Gabby Logan on the BBC I am afraid that
    their presentation is poor.
    By the way don’t be surprised if Iran beat England, That is if
    the mad mullahs of Tehran allow them to play. Because
    most of their team including Sardar Azmoun support the
    demonstrators. England are ranked 14 Iran 21.

      Where is our “white riot” ? or even peaceful protest

      oh yeh Tommy Robinson and look what happened to him….a little bit different from the way the eco protesters are treated

      God help anyone willing to be a figurehead to protest against this blairite socialist takeover with their Blair appointed supreme court able to stop government

      like Trump they will be hounded to death

      the bbc will tacitly allow their presenters to say they should have battery acid thrown at them, that they should laugh on camera when a primeminsiter loses his job, jewish children will be attacked in Oxford street and the bbc will support the muzzie attackers and LIE about it


      • Doublethinker says:

        Yep if we continue to ‘take it ‘ without protest we are toast.

        Don’t use the A-word: BBC accused of censorship over Rotherham child abuse by failing to mention that gangs were Asian
        Report found 1,400 children abused between 1997 and 2013 in Rotherham
        Majority of the perpetrators were Pakistani men, the report revealed

    Devil in the detail sick note edition

    Our BBC goes with: UK unemployment rate rises slightly to 3.6% – good news, right?

    The two rather well-fed looking black women in hi-viz vests representing the British workforce (care of Getty Images) certainly look busy enough.

    The BBC quickly moves on from the subject of the September employment number to the subject of pay but rather confuses this reader with: Pay rose at its fastest rate outside the pandemic but continues to lag behind the cost of living – if I’m parsing that sentence correctly it means pay rose pretty sharply during that period the BBC calls the pandemic – which is pretty odd since the workforce was surely at its least productive in Lockdown – moving quickly on… what period are we talking about? Circa March 2020 until…? Not sure when the official end date was? Beginning of the government inquiry?

    In May 2021, the prime minister announced that there would be an official inquiry into the COVID-19 pandemic. On June 28 2022, he accepted the terms of reference for the COVID-19 inquiry (Royal College of Physicians) – so let’s say June 2022 as the end of the panic – sorry, the pandemic.

    Where were we? Ah yes… pay.

    When adjusted for rising prices, wages fell by 2.7% in the year to September – official figures greatly massage the top line inflation rate, so any adjusted sum here is guff.

    No wonder the unions ain’t happy.

    “August and September saw well over half a million working days lost to strikes, the highest two-month total in more than a decade, with the vast majority coming from the transport and communications sectors.” – that’ll make productivity fall even further.

    Of course talk of falling pay is cat nip to Labour: Labour’s shadow chancellor, Rachel Reeves, said the UK was paying for “12 years of Tory economic mistakes” – nothing to with expensive ‘green’ energy tosh, hyper immigration swelling the labour market with cheap foreign imports or heaven forbid Lockdown mistakes, obviously. ‘Cos Labour wanted earlier, harder and longer.

    What Labour also won’t tell us is how productivity can be improved, thereby the British workforce honestly earning itself more pay rises and prosperity?

    An immigration pause might help wages rise care of that old thing known as supply and demand – but neither Tory nor Labour will speak of such things.

    Half-hidden away halfway down the BBC report, kicked into the long grass so to speak, we get this worrying kicker: The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the proportion of people neither working nor looking for work rose again, in the three months to September – think of that as a growing dead weight the workforce has to carry.

    I’ve seen estimates of 360 thousand growth in the total of long-term “sick”

    Older workers continued to leave the labour market, the ONS said, with the number of people classed as long-term sick increasing to a fresh record in the quarter. “However, in the most recent quarter the main contribution has actually come from younger groups,” added Darren Morgan, director of labour and economic statistics at the ONS. – long-term sick? But our glorious NHS…? But the marvel of innovation of vaccination…?

    Islam is the fastest growing religion in the United Kingdom and its adherents have the lowest average age out of all the major religious groups.[13] Between 2001 and 2009, the Muslim population increased almost 10 times faster than the non-Muslim population.[14]

    In 2022, advocacy group Open Doors said that at least 360 million Christians experienced “high levels of persecution and discrimination.” This was 20 million higher than 2021. The group also estimated that the number of Christians killed for their faith rose to 5,898 in 2022, up from 4,761 in 2021.11 hours ago

    Iain Duncan Smith has slammed Rishi Sunak for using his G20 visit to water down Liz’s hardline position on China. Speaking to the travelling press pack, Rishi labelled China a “systematic threat” before correcting himself to “systematic challenge”. He did go on, however, to admit it is the “biggest state-based threat to our economic security”. This marks a lowering of the temperature compared to Truss’s plan to elevate China’s formal status to ‘threat’…
