    I can’t help noticing that the left wing, diversity-loving, multicultural-loving BBC seem to have very little time to embrace the multiculturalism and celebrate the diversity of…..Qatar.

    Clear proof that in BBCLabour land, only ‘approved’ cultural views are acceptable.

    a workforce that felt “patronised” due to threats of “school registers” to record the attendance of employees as well as “vague and implicit threats”.

      “Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association chairman Adrien Berry said: ‘It is hard to see how he first passed the judicial exams and then why it has taken so long for his lack of knowledge to be exposed.”

      When you give people special privilege above the law, you get no law and 1400 raped and tortured children over 16 years … ‘In August 2014 the Jay report concluded that at least 1,400 children, most of them white girls aged 11–15, had been sexually abused in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013 by predominantly British-Pakistani men.’

    BBC never worry about costs. Its all about saving the global elite agenda. Now we know that WEF (our new PM) and even Boris believe in terminal decline (engineered by the UN global socialists) we are told there is no alternative…. pain and recession for ever more…

    Climate change Flops (BBC coverage are all over it as usual).
    Its cost TRILLIONS so far…

    Worth reading how and why this is so….
    Backed by China, (home of Corona-virus lock downs). BBC are at it again EMERGENCY this Winter, it would be exactly the same under Labour (Starmer would ensure no change is possible). BBC license fee would be mandatory for life..

    I also had a look at the REFORM party solution and they have put the abolishing of the BBC license fee high on the agenda. (Its on page 18 of this PDF) below.

    They get my vote. So it will be REFORM party for me. The BBC are the tip of an iceberg of global elites that don’t believe in democracy. They think they know it all and that we are all proles and plebs and this is why the BBC have to go. We need public service reforms big time.

      The bottleneck is at the Emergency ward.
      ..A big reason is patients who dont have a real emergency
      Everyone has a video phone , so triage could be done via that at your location instead of at hospital.

      One thing is doctors rarely do house visits, tgese days.
      Maybe there should be a service where you get a doctor or nurse on a videophone
      Perhaps by paying £10 per minute

    I didn’t notice local BBC reporting on the closure of a Grimsby fish factory.
    The truth is it is an old factory that has closed before
    These days it has few employees..
    “90 existing positions at Havelok”
    Yet Remainer PR are shouting oh look Brexit job losses”

    The news story makes it clear the business had been in trouble for years before Icelanders ISI started it up again
    “Built by Five Star, the company former Grimsby Town chairman John Fenty founded, it was sold on with successive buyers running into trouble.
    A total of 380 roles were lost when it finally closed in 2018.” (before that it had had 500 workers)

      Why Google Poses a Serious Threat to Democracy,
      and How to End That Threat

      I reach out to diverse different audiences because the threats posed by Google, and, to a
      lesser extent, Facebook, are so serious that I think everyone in the world needs to know
      about them. I put my own political leanings aside when I report my data and concerns
      because the problems these companies present eclipse personal politics. To put this another
      way, I love humanity, my country, and democracy more than I love any particular party or
      candidate. And democracy as originally conceived cannot survive Big Tech as currently

      In the weeks leading up to the 2018 election, bias in Google’s search results may
      have shifted upwards of 78.2 million votes to the candidates of one political party
      (spread across hundreds of local and regional races). T

    Colombian singer Maluma has left a live TV interview after the reporter suggested he could be accused of whitewashing Qatari human rights abuses.

    During a broadcast on Israeli public television, Maluma was asked: “Don’t you have a problem with human rights violations in this country?”

    He responded that was something he couldn’t resolve, adding he had come to “enjoy life, enjoy soccer”.

    The star features alongside Nicki Minaj and Myriam Fares on Tukoh Taka, the official Fifa Qatar World Cup anthem.

    Rutherford’s anti-eugenics 6 part series
    First clip … guess ??

    Trump saying “we have good genes”
    Rutherford’s framing “that speech was done in Minnesota where the dominant immigration was Norwegian*
    you know Aryan ideas”
    … * I wont take that assertion at face value.

    Second clip Trump again “You’re not proud to have that German blood ? good stuff”

    Rutherford could have just stuck to mentioning Selective Breeding had been done for millennia with animals.
    Instead he just had a quick line about matching muscly male and female racehorses to get a winner.


    • StewGreen says:

      I search for a clean Trump transcript
      It’s difficult cos no non lefty site carried the story
      Rather there is a series of lefty stories getting more hyperbolic the later published.
      “Oh Trump talked about genes, looks like the crowd were white a lot of Norwegians emigrated their
      .. so that’s Trump praising Aryans
      .. so that’s Trump bring a Nazi.”

      Some Trump quotes

      #1 “I want to start by thanking Chairman Roslyn Brock, beautiful woman, for that very kind introduction. (Applause.)
      And I mentioned to her, I said, *her mother’s hot*. She’s gorgeous. *Good genes*. (Laughter.) ”

      #2 “So these guys have *good genes* in addition to inventive minds
      & the story of generations starting businesses, hiring folks, work hard, get ahead, that’s what America is all about”


      • StewGreen says:

        Hangon those two weren’t Trump quotes
        and weren’t used by the prog
        Guess who spoke them ?

        Here’s a transcript of the full Trump segment that they selectively edited to omit the context
        BBC clipped the context that he was saying the ancestors that built the state were TOUGH,
        that strong genes overcame adversity
        He does mention Racehorse theory .. that two strong racehorse parents make winning foals.


        Trump never referenced skin colour
        When he talked about ancestors having strong breeding that would include all who survived the harsh conditions eg American indigenous people plus white/black/Chinese etcm

        #1 was Obama
        #2 was Michelle Obama


    • StewGreen says:

      There is something weird about Rutherford using that second Trump clip

      Rutherford played the first clip
      then dog whistled “that speech was done in Minnesota where the dominant immigration was Norwegian*
      you know Aryan ideas”
      Then he immediately played the second Trump clip
      , “You know, I’m proud to have that German blood, no question about it. Great stuff”
      .. Then he played dark music
      At no point did he explain the context of that clip
      So what is the context?
      I know it’s early cos it’s used in a hit piece montage against Trump in 2016
      but here’s the kick .. not one promoter of that clip/montage ever says where it originally comes from
      Why ? cos that is good for Trump I guess
      .. that clip https://www.bitchute.com/video/JQKcWbxYWBeL/

      The whole “Trump is a eugenic Nazi” smear
      is both ridiculous and nasty

      Does Trump go for racial purity ?
      He married Slavs one Czech, one Slovenian
      His close daughter married a Jew
      Trump is very happy to visit Israel
      Trump doesn’t do anything anti-Semitic

      Tidal power is a promising renewable energy source, but production costs, a limited number of suitable locations, and technological challenges hinder its expansion.

      Do tidal turbines affect marine life?
      Tidal turbines can harm marine ecosystems in a variety of ways. They interfere with the movement of sea creatures and can also trap them in their blades. They can change the water level and the levels of salt and silt in the water. The underwater noise turbines produce can interfere with sea creatures’ communication.14 Jun 2022

Its the same for wind power, that they get a guaranteed minimum when the wind don’t blow and when it does. And half the time it does not.

      Dear Winston Smith,

      I noticed that Jon Sopel is talking about impartial and unbiased reporting but his twitter account has three references to his book whilst using the BBC brand. Could the BBC please explain what is happening?

      1) Is BBC Jon Sopel supposed to tell us about the news or his new book?

      2) BBC Jon Sopel’s twitter feed has the BBC name in it and says “Jon Sopel, BBC North America Editor. My book If Only They Didn’t Speak English is out now.” which references his book and not the fact he is an unbiased and impartial reporter.

      3) BBC Jon Sopel’s twitter’s pinned tweet is from 23May2018 and is about .. himself and his book.

      4) Is BBC Jon Sopel’s book 100% BBC approved thought and unbiased and partial?

      5) Shouldn’t BBC Jon Sopel’s twitter be about the latest news and not himself?

      6) When Jon Sopel sells a book does it go to help pay for the BBC TV Tax – to reduce it? As the BBC are promoting it – thus it is promoted by the BBC TV Tax Payer.

      “Impartiality lies at the heart of public service and is the core of the BBC’s commitment to its audiences. It applies to all our output and services – television, radio, online, and in our international services and commercial magazines. We must be inclusive, considering the broad perspective and ensuring the existence of a range of views is appropriately reflected”

      Good luck answering this one without laughing yourself silly.

      Almost 100% of UK GP practices are Private businesses
      .. I’ve never heard of one that isn’t

      Most don’t charge consultation fee
      but I guess many millionaires have always used Harley St private doctors who charge and give immediate service.


      • MarkyMark says:

        Most GPs think of themselves as being part of the NHS, but officially they are classed as independent contractors. It is a status that dates back to the beginning of the NHS, and at the time suited both policy makers – who wanted to keep costs down, and GPs – who were and remain keen to maintain their independence from NHS management.



      • tomo says:

        I wonder how many GP practices that describe themselves as “Random_Local_Name Health Centre” are a private partnership/limited company – considering that every single person registered with a GP contributes to the revenue stream – it strikes me that every GP practice should publish an annual report on their web site – they keep records an file accounts …. don’t they….

        NHS have funded several large health centre builds around here where the ownership is touted as “NHS” – but the actual detail seems carefully concealed.


        • StewGreen says:

          GP practices are required to publish their GP’s net earnings on their website

          The average for our local surgery of 5 doctors is £97K
          Then there is caveat about hours worked
          So that you cannot tell if they all worked double time or all worked part time
          If it were 5 working 35 hours/wk
          it would be £60 salary for every 1 hour worked.


          • tomo says:

            However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earning is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgment about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.

            It’s not clear who owns what when it comes to GP facilities – the local one is built on a site that was partly owned by a group practice – but the NHS funded a quintupling of land area and a new facility block and car park.

      Persecution of people with albinism (sometimes abbreviated PWA[1]) is based on the belief that certain body parts of albinistic people can transmit magical powers. Such superstition is present especially in some parts of the African Great Lakes region, it has been promulgated and exploited by witch doctors and others who use such body parts as ingredients in rituals, concoctions and potions with the claim that their magic will bring prosperity to the user (muti or medicine murder).[2]

      As a result, people with albinism have been persecuted, killed and dismembered, and graves of albinos dug up and desecrated. At the same time, people with albinism have also been ostracised and even killed for exactly the opposite reason, because they are presumed to be cursed and bring bad luck. The persecutions of people with albinism take place mostly in Sub-Saharan African communities, especially among East Africans.[3]: 81

    ‘Unimportant. We shall conquer them when it suits us. And if we did not, what difference would it make? We can shut them out of existence. Oceania is the world.’

    ‘But the world itself is only a speck of dust. And man is tiny helpless! How long has he been in existence? For millions of years the earth was uninhabited.’

    ‘Nonsense. The earth is as old as we are, no older. How could it be older? Nothing exists except through human consciousness.’

    ‘But the rocks are full of the bones of extinct animals — mammoths and mastodons and enormous reptiles which lived here long before man was ever heard of.’

    ‘Have you ever seen those bones, Winston? Of course not. Nineteenth-century biologists invented them. Before man there was nothing. After man, if he could come to an end, there would be nothing. Outside man there is nothing.’

    ‘But the whole universe is outside us. Look at the stars! Some of them are a million light-years away. They are out of our reach for ever.’

    ‘What are the stars?’ said O’Brien indifferently. ‘They are bits of fire a few kilometres away. We could reach them if we wanted to. Or we could blot them out. The earth is the centre of the universe. The sun and the stars go round it.’

    Winston made another convulsive movement. This time he did not say anything. O’Brien continued as though answering a spoken objection:

    ‘For certain purposes, of course, that is not true. When we navigate the ocean, or when we predict an eclipse, we often find it convenient to assume that the earth goes round the sun and that the stars are millions upon millions of kilometres away. But what of it? Do you suppose it is beyond us to produce a dual system of astronomy? The stars can be near or distant, according as we need them. Do you suppose our mathematicians are unequal to that? Have you forgotten doublethink?’

    Winston shrank back upon the bed. Whatever he said, the swift answer crushed him like a bludgeon. And yet he knew, he knew, that he was in the right. The belief that nothing exists outside your own mind — surely there must be some way of demonstrating that it was false? Had it not been exposed long ago as a fallacy? There was even a name for it, which he had forgotten. A faint smile twitched the corners of O’Brien’s mouth as he looked down at him.

    ‘I told you, Winston,’ he said, ‘that metaphysics is not your strong point. The word you are trying to think of is solipsism. But you are mistaken. This is not solipsism. Collective solipsism, if you like. But that is a different thing: in fact, the opposite thing. All this is a digression,’ he added in a different tone. ‘The real power, the power we have to fight for night and day, is not power over things, but over men.’ He paused, and for a moment assumed again his air of a schoolmaster questioning a promising pupil: ‘How does one man assert his power over another, Winston?’

    Winston thought. ‘By making him suffer,’ he said.

      Chilling but true. WE are at that point of ‘truth’ as predicted by George Orwell. The BBC are even proud of the association.

    Did New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern Once Say, ‘Unless You Hear It from Us, It Is Not the Truth’?
    Maybe more importantly, when and in what context did she say that?

    In Re ; the BBC’s new project to gat us into the EU .

    Yesterday they found a person who says he was for Brexit but “feels betrayed “ now and wishes he voted for remain .
    No doubt out of the 17 million people who voted Out in 2016 the BBC would find somebody who would vote differently today . I expect the BBC would look hard for a Brexiteer who now wants to remain but not for a remainers who would now vote out .
    I’ve found some . You will find some . Easy .

    The 1975 referendum was 60% for staying in . Contrary to the wishes of the BBC , those that voted then have not all died out . But they will be older , and the BBC has the meme that it’s just the older voter who are for Brexit , spoiling the future for the younger who voted remain . But those older voters voted to remain in 1975 , but leave in 2016 . So they have changed their minds going from remainers to Brexiters .
    And that’s about four or five million of them , not just 4 or 5 individuals the BBC tried hard to find .
    I repeat , that’s millions of people that went from remainers to Brexiters and you can’t find it the other way round .

    The Town That Took On The Taxman
    BBC Two, Wednesday 20 January 2016
    In this programme it was stated that Amazon paid “just £11.9m in corporation tax last year (2014) on £5.3 bn of sales. That’s 0.0002%”. In fact this represents 0.22% by proportion.

    BBC Two, Friday 6 November 2015
    In a report about the crash of a Russian airliner it was stated that an official report had determined that Flight MH17 was brought down over Ukraine by a rocket launched by ‘Russian backed rebels’. Although the report by the Dutch Safety Board did cite the use of a Russian made missile and surface to air missile system, it did not state who had launched the missile.

    World Cup: Qatar won’t allow cooked Kosher food, public Jewish prayer
    Jewish organizations claim that Qatar is breaking its promise on allowing any cooked Kosher food to be sold at FIFA World Cup.

    “We were promised to be allowed to create prayer spaces in order for religious Jews who came to see the games to have a place of worship,” a representative of a Jewish organization said. “We were recently told that they banned places of worship for Jews because they cannot secure them.”

    Massively cold in Germany and Poland at the weekend with temperatures dropping down to -10C and -13C not the coldest on record but certainly the coldest in 15 years, and it is of course enormously important given the issues with gas shortages, but it doesn’t get reported because only high temperatures are reported.

    Even the record breaking snow event in Buffalo isn’t covered on the BBC, doesn’t fit the narrative so you don’t need to know.

      I saw that chilly weather in Germany and looked for coverage – nope, none – but loads of gushing drivel and PR hand jobs for the celebrants at Sharm-el-Shakedown.

      If a weather system spins off south from Russia (Siberia) to Qatar I will be pleased. It happens … it went down to 1C overnight when I was working there – no snow unfortunately.

    Not BBC.
    But two fine examples of the utter insanity of our judicial system.

    On ITV, one story quickly after another.

    1. A man stole a car. He killed two people. The cop who chased him is on trial. His chase was apparently ‘disproportionate’. The fact that a conviction will send out the green light to every criminal involved in car stealing has raised not one mention.
    2. Shamima Begun, one of the ISIS brides by general agreement, has a court case going to be allowed back into the UK. . Her lawyers allege she was the victim of trafficking. VICTIM !!!! Her lawyers? Who are these lawyers? Who is paying them ? Not her, I suggest, from her camp in Syria. And she is now a victim???

    With this kind of priority is there any wonder the public has no faith whatever in the authorities spending time catching and convicting actual criminals. But then isn’t the judicial system just a racket to keep entitled lawyers very wealthy, and sod the public who pays for it all.

    Millions of lives under threat in Ukraine this winter – WHO

    Rancid BBC manage to combine support for the previous and latest current thing in one article .
    A Covid / Ukraine fake bullshit combo .

    ‘There are also concerns about Covid cases rising.
    “With low basic vaccination rates – let alone boosters – millions of Ukrainians have waning or no immunity to Covid,” Dr Kluge said.’

    The old dangerous claim that the gunge gives immunity..

    “Zaporizhzhia nuclear power…
    There was renewed shelling at the plant over the weekend.”

    Not shelling of the plant?
    Plus – copy and pasted for the thousandth time:

    “Russia and Ukraine have accused each other of carrying out the attacks.”

    Bloke used a street Electric Car charger, as usual he pointed his phone at the QR code sticker.
    Clicked OK to authorise the payment.
    Then later found out a scammer had posted his own QR code sticker over the real one. So he’d actually paid the scammer.
