Two in a row, will I ever make it three
Could it be possible, the end of the Fee
Will it ever end, the dreadful Telly Tax
Could it be possible MPs will stiffen their backs
And make this the year of a manifesto pledge
To remove the fear, the inevitable dread
Of an expense that causes an all round shiver
While the BBC sells the Tory government down the river
Dreadful doggerel, but in particular the last line is a long way from scanning. You seem well qualified to be Poet Laureate.
Cheers Fred, just as long as Snuffy doesn’t have to go trans and become Gillian (Duffy) in order to become Poet Laureate. Yes, it is awful doggerel and as well as not ‘scanning’ at the end (I was getting a bit tired) it may not scan in the middle or, at least, doesn’t rhyme well in the middle.
If it is any consolation, the PL is paid via a case of booze, cannot remember whether its wine, port or sherry, but I will be happy to share ‘the salary’ with regular posters here. ;-
If a hospital is running short on nurses and others on the wards and they find they cannot get things done they should get a few dozen of their diversity officers to leave their offices and go onto the wards to help out.
Most of them are trained nurses anyway! They’ve just crossed over to managerial to up their salaries.
(having another bouncy night on the Bay of Biscay as we head home)
While taxes rise for us mugs, even as we try to recover from unnecessary lockdowns, the Sunak PM has the gall to send even more of our money to the corrupt Ukranian government, and even more to the corrupt Climate Change scam.
Hopefully the Ukraine has a short life, but the Climate Change scam is a never ending scam till hell freezes over.
What the hell is the matter with the conservatives. How the hell did we get here.
Absolute must watch
PM Meloni blasts France’s ‘exploitation’ of African countries on live TV
And in more detail
France Exposed – Exploitation of West and Central Africa Continues Way Beyond Colonial Times
But it falls far short of the full extent of French post-colonial exploitation.
The so-called Central Banks of the West African Francophone former colonies – Mauritania, Senegal, Mali (formerly French Sudan), Guinea (formerly French Guinea), Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso (formerly Upper Volta) , Benin (formerly Dahomey) and Niger – and of the former Central African colonies – Central African Republic – CAR (former Oubangui-Chari); Chad; Gabon; and the Republic of Congo (former Middle Congo) – are just shadow institutions
And it it is not just France, Belgium and Scandinavia exploiting Africa; the UK has exploited the Phillipines to the point of turning their ‘best in the world’ healthcare system into something that is inferior to our NHS. I had a very interesting conversation with a fairly senior UK nurse, from the Phillipines originally, some years ago. She only saw her husband and child for a few weeks every year, if I recall correctly, if not it was every other year.
Disgraceful and a shame on our NHS.
Another arson attack on a Cathedral in France. The BBC aren’t even slightly interested. Perhaps they’re waiting to be sure it wasn’t one of their friends from – ahem – a certain other religion.
(The fact that no details have been released about the suspect suggests it probably WAS!)
PS. Comments are interesting: people are getting red-pilled and waking up to what’s really going on in France and all over Europe.
Would BBC be interested in the story of an alcoholic in France, who has already admitted it and been jailed ?
Checking with French media rather than Breitbart
From CCTV they picked up an alcoholic
and he admitted it
So on Saturday a court sentenced him to 2 months in jail
with another 6 months suspended.
An earlier story
“Thursday, November 17, at the end of the afternoon, firefighters/gendarmes were mobilized in the Saint-Paul-Aurélien cathedral of Saint-Pol-de-Léon
They intervened to extinguish a start of fire,
A dozen chairs were scotched with candles; which would then have led to the formation of particularly thick smoke.
A town councilor confided that the fire could be “deliberate” , according to the first evidence.
Another church was targeted in Isère a few days earlier, on November 15 .
According to information from the Dauphiné Libéré , this fire was intentional
.. youths are being blamed
Essentially, Muslim Jihadi attacks on churches in France and the West, is because we as a society don’t believe in anything.
Jihadis are thus moving into empty space.
The giveaway is there is somebody wandering around the scaffolding, moments before the fire breaks out, in a white nightie.
Decriminalise TV Tax? Be careful what you wish for.
At the moment having a TV without having a licence is a criminal offence. To be convicted of a criminal offence the level of proof required is beyond reasonable doubt. Coupled with that the gathering of evidence and handling of a criminal case has to be beyond reproach.
So the offence is decriminalised. This will mean that the “offender” will be subject to Civil procedures in the County Court. An invoice will be issued for non compliance similar in nature to parking charge notices and it will then be incumbent on the victim to prove they don’t owe the money. Theoretically everyone in the Country could be billed. It won’t be just a licence fee that would be claimed for, there would also be costs and penalties.I’m sure that Crapita would be delighted
“having a TV without having a licence is a criminal offence”
Sorry but not correct or true ………….
No. It isn’t illegal to own or watch a TV. It does depend on what you watch though, as you say. What I meant of course was that watching live TV, as defined in legislation, is illegal and is subject to criminal sanction.
Decriminalisation will make things much easier for the BBC and Capita.
Are you employed by The BBC ?
Just scrap the TV Licence and let the BBC be funded by subscribers or donations . Simples
I’ve no idea how you got that impression. You couldn’t be more wrong.
” What I meant of course was that watching live TV, as defined in legislation”
Scrap the BBC and the “Legislation”
TV Licence – End of.
If you like the BBC you pay for it .
Flotsam, taffman is quite correct you can own a digital TV or CRT TV with a digital decoder but if you only watch ITV, C4 and C5 catch-up services it is quite legal. You only need a TV Licence to watch BBC ‘live’ broadcasts or iPlayer now that the BBC have welshed on the original agreement for their iPlayer services.
a phrase, generally attributed to James Otis about 1761, that reflected the resentment of American colonists at being taxed by a British Parliament to which they elected no representatives and became an anti-British slogan before the American Revolution; in full, “Taxation without representation is tyranny.”
During the half time interval in the World cup game between France and Australia on BBC1, there was a segment criticising Quatar for it’s false Carbon Neutral statements. It was a substantial parade of MMGW/Green propaganda.
Carbon Neutral – maybe traveling around the world wouldn’t help. But hey I thought they were there to play football, not turn into something political, next footballers will be taking the knee for some reason – instead of playing football for what they are paid to do
ITV local news
“Theatre group pull play from Sheffield Crucible over Miss Saigon controversy”
You what ?
An Asian theatre group says it won’t perform in Sheffield cos the venue dares to host another show in another month that this Asian group doesn’t like.
FFS performers have no right to dictate a venues editorial policy
It’s upto a venue who they book, they shouldn’t be blackmailed by other performers
“Miss Saigon has highly problematic narrative and portrayal of the Vietnam War and Vietnamese people.”
It sparked anger when it first opened in London’s West End in 1989, with white actors playing Vietnamese parts.
It has continued to face criticism for depicting the war solely from a white and Western perspective.”
Doh it’s acting and it’s fiction.
Are only Scottish actors allowed to perform Macbeth , only Italians ..Romea and Juliet ?
Apologies if this has been discussed. Most popular names of 2022 been published…….. Sophie for girls. Here we go,….. Mohammed for boys. Is this proof that more non-white and of migrant extract, children are being born here. Their birth rate is the only way to conquer us, and is on course for it working.
Did they do their usual trick to try and hide it by counting slightly different spellings of Mohammed as completely different names ?.
Yes that story is about 6 weeks old
The story is the establishment actually admitting it for once
However even tho Mo was the #1 name
There weren’t actually many boys given that name
cos there are a huge variety of names among boys
Mo being #1 doesn’t mean that a large proportion of boys have that name
I think it was 1% or something.
The name is significant not because of the numbers but of why it was chosen.
From the Arabic Hamid, meaning “praised” and “praiser of God”.
Here’s how the Channel-4 fact checker justifies it:
‘And there is a simple explanation for this: while the world’s Muslims have many good qualities, being imaginative about boys’ names isn’t one of them.’
Wrong Channel-4 ‘fact checker’. ‘Imagination’ has nothing whatsoever to do with it. They choose that name because their religion means more to them than their own preferences.
And that is the problem I have with it being at the top of the list. It’s taking us back to the stone age.
Brissles, 2022? There’s another month to go?
“Chris Mason: Brexit has shifted Labour’s instinct on immigration”
Has Labour become more Tory than the Tories ?
taffman, “Has Labour become more Tory than the Tories ?”
Starmer really doesn’t have a clue on policy but somone, his wife or children?, have whispered in his ear that if he recaptures ‘the Red Wall seats’ he will be well on the way to keeping his current job.
Gary Lineker: BBC should have spoken up about Russia at 2018 World Cup
It seems the BBC are relaxing their rules about presenters having a political opinion. Even football commentators. Lineker has no place using the BBC as a soapbox for his own political opinions.
And of course politics should be kept out of sport. Particularly at the BBC.
If nobody clips his ears, I mean wings, they will have pushed the limit to what they know they can get away with just a little bit more.
Lineker is going to make a move into politics soon, I can tell. And he’ll have his chums at the BBC right behind him.
Was reading the same on the bBC webshte, and about to comment.
Maybe its because he earns so much the bbc feel that people will listen
Same as David Attenborough andy – who they using as their climate-change mouthpiece because of how famous he is.
I feel sorry for him because he’s well past his best and the BBC still push him to the front because since they went woke and hired people for reasons other than ability, they have no ‘talent’ good enough to replace him.
Thought David’s brother, Richard was a great film actor.
Maybe thats why David is a good “actor”
Explicitly, since Naga Munchetty had her censure reversed for expressing negative views on Donald Trump it’s become a free for all on the BBC. As long as you don’t suggest that MMGW “science” is nonsense
Presenters expressing personal views promoting MMGW is allowed because, according to the BBC, it’s an indisputable fact. No one is allowed to express a dissenting opinion.
Maybe she can laugh at all flags? ISIS flag?
‘Sneering’: Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty slammed for making fun of Union Jack flag

Outrage amid claims Qatar to ban kosher food and Jewish public prayer
Around 10,000 Jews from Israel and around the world expected to arrive in Qatar for the games
BY DANIEL BEN-DAVID
NOVEMBER 21, 2022 12:07
Just repeating the quote of the day from Guido on Monday.
Douglas Carswell on the NHS…
“A recent report by the Institute for Fiscal Studies revealed that spending on the NHS has grown by 12% since 2019 in real terms. There are now 13% more NHS doctors, and 11% more nurses. Yet the NHS somehow manages to treat 5% fewer people. “
“Pen pushers” getting in the way .
In April 2020, the Health Secretary announced that over £13bn of NHS debt would be written off and converted to public dividend capital (PDC). This was part of a wide range of financial measures the Government brought in for health and social care during the current pandemic.
‘Wasteful’ NHS spent £100MILLION on prescription paracetamol, aspirin and ibuprofen last year that can be bought for pennies over counter — and £10,000 on COCAINE
Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
Art curator is just one of a thousand NHS ‘non-jobs’ costing taxpayers £46 million
The annual spend for translation and interpreting at the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) reached GBP 65.96m (USD 82.88m) in 2019/2020. This, according to a new report analyzing data from 244 NHS Trusts and Health Boards in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
In May last year NHS Test and Trace (NHST&T) was set up with a budget of £22 billion. Since then it has been allocated £15 billion more: totalling £37 billion over two years.
Numbers using the service is being cranked up annually by the hundreds of thousands of new arrivals…………………..
Paul Mason? Sounds familiar.

The analysis found 25.1% of nurses were obese compared with 14.4% of “other healthcare professionals”, which included doctors and dentists.
US shooting: Man kills up to 10 in Virginia Walmart store
Just reading this story and I’ve been thinking for a while how I’m surprised there aren’t more people cracking and doing such things in the USA.
The Democrats have absolutely divided the country down the middle with things like impeaching Trump 3 times, their extreme treatment of the Jan-06 riots, forcing BLM and it’s absolutely racist agenda down our throats and statements from Biden calling every Trump supporter a threat to democracy. I have been amazed at how all the midterm election results are like 51% to 49%. The country is utterly polarised between Left and Right.
We are living in a perfect storm at the moment. I would not be surprised at all if it degenerated into civil war.
A man believed to be the store manager opened fire then turned the gun on himself, and is now dead.
The City of Chesapeake tweeted “police confirm an active shooter incident with fatalities at the Walmart”.
The trial heard Osborne became “obsessed” with Muslims in the weeks leading up to the attack, having watched the BBC drama Three Girls, about the Rochdale grooming scandal.
The gay club shooting slaughter at the weekend didn’t get much coverage so I guess it was an ‘Alan’s snack bar ‘(Muslim ) killer … or maybe not …
Some bits …
In 2016, the suspect – then known as Nicholas F. Brink – petitioned a Texas court to change his name, though it remains unclear why.
Aldrich was arrested in June 2021 in connection with a bomb threat which led to a standoff at his mother’s home, according to a news release from the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office at the time and his mother’s former landlord. Colorado Springs is in El Paso County.
Aldrich is the grandson of outgoing California Assemblyman Randy Voepel, according to social media reports and CNN interviews.
Voepel, who has served as a state lawmaker since 2016, lost his re-election bid earlier this month. He could not be reached for comment. It’s unclear how much Voepel, the father of Aldrich’s mother, interacted with his grandson.
“This is Lexington and Concord. First shots fired against tyranny,” he said, according to The San Diego Union Tribune. “Tyranny will follow in the aftermath of the Biden swear in on January 20th.”

According to BBC news there may well be a ‘gambling clinic ‘in wales full of young men wearing football shirts who may have vitamin deficiency because they eat the wrong stuff and won’t go sick because they need the money …..

Some men develop depression, loss of sex drive, erectile dysfunction, and other physical and emotional symptoms when they reach their late 40s to early 50s.
The hottest new thing since air fryers edition
Like that toothless poisonous old gypsy one met in a country lane and in all innocence crossed somehow, our corporate globalist Financial Times delivers, from the very bottom of its black heart those worst imaginable sweary old curses on Brexit Britain: Only Russia will perform worse than the UK in next two years, OECD warns – and may all your shop-bought plastic clothes pegs rot and forever fail dropping all your clean washing to the ground and casting your undies to the four winds of climate change.
Meanwhile the FT seems keen to contain the big crypto ponzi scheme scandal to the responsibilty of just the one villain: FTX chief ran crypto group as his fiefdom, court hears… Bankman-Fried spending revealed – if the FT lead report dare mention those links from major Democrat Party donor FTX, via Ukraine, back to the Democrat Party and to Biden, then it’s buried very deep in the small print.
The Sun lauds: Hero to the throne… King presents Sun award to brave doctor… A heroic doctor who saved countless lives in Ukraine was honoured with a Sun Who Cares Wins award in a jaw-dropping surprise presenation by King Charles – nice… all very laudable… just imagine the personal dangers and discomforts of working in a warzone, especially for this female doctor of a certain age… (more of that notion later)… but how about our saw-bones set about delivering some of that heroic healthcare over here in the UK?
‘For a few minutes you enter their lives and it’s really tough’ – the Guardian there quoting Dr Kamilia Hawthorne, Royal College of GPs
I’m oddly reminded of that long-running BBC TV show that brought us graphic footage from the surgical theatre – Your Life in Their Hands – not something for those with a faint heart or weak stomach, mind you – some wag amusingly referred to it as Their Hands in Your Life
Anyway, the Gruan is keen to align the quacks with the rest of our bolshi public sector against the Tories – and perhaps remembering how Labour stuffed their mouths with gold they don’t take much persuading: Doctor’s warning: poverty forcing sick people to keep going to work – one would have thought some physical activity could often be good for your health?
Fears cost of living impact is leaving GPs’ surgeries stretched (Guardian) – if all these patients are forced by poverty to keep working, how come they’re hanging around the GPs’ surgeries?
Menopausal NHS staff can work from home… Women may be given lighter duties as health chief urges other employers to follow suit (Telegraph) – don’t worry about that, luvs – the police will be sure to follow suit. Police bosses are right on message, they have already received the memo and have bought the T-shirt – or should that be the menopause vest?: Met terror chief wears ‘hot flush vest’ to understand the menopause (Daily Mail)
The vest is a black, high-necked bodywarmer that simulates the hot flushes that affect more than half of menopausal women. It weighs perhaps 2 lb and contains heating pads as well as red and black wires leading to a battery. It is programmed to warm itself to a roasting 45c, in waves that travel from the waist to the neck (Daily Mail) – cheaper than central heating this winter? I’m interested. How long do the batteries last?
Asiseeit – I’m waiting for your ‘what are we going to do without 4 games a day ?’ Edition ….

We shall be left defending, not only the incredible virtues and sanities of human life, but something more incredible still, this huge impossible universe which stares us in the face.
Sounds like the EU And countries are free to leave the zone, it adds.
In December 2019, reforms to the CFA zone were announced, dropping the requirement that countries in the zone deposit half their reserves in France.
France defends the currency system as ensuring a “stable economic framework” for the economies that are part of it, and as the currency is pegged to the Euro it says it provides better protection against economic shocks and helps control inflation.
And countries are free to leave the zone, it adds.
France and a ‘stable economic framework’? As I see it, the Franc is essentially also fiat currency along with all the rest, some better than others (Norway, e.g.). Would you invest in France when they’re equally as guilty of printing money till the presses run dry of ink.

I hope they never find out what I had on my trusty Psion 3a…
That’s the one!
I remember using the alarm in my office, and it was the ‘bell chime’, which would come on whenever.
One day, I found an old bloke in the office peering out of the window, and saying that he never knew there was a church nearby, and he’d worked here for ages…
I didn’t tell him because he was a silly old fart.
Psion 3a series, all Al Beeb employees are handed one at their first day of ‘work’; it comes with the essential built in feature of ‘Agenda’ which you must follow at all times!!
I bet they didn’t get a leather pouch to keep it in, and a chip of special (expensive at £35.00) games, DV!
I could drive up the M2, get a call on the fixed car phone, (remember them), answer the call, swear softly, open the Psion one-handed, switch on the overhead light in the car, scroll through the contacts, get the number, punch it in the phone, number by number, close the Psion, and complete the call in about ten minutes and without bashing into anyone else on the motorway!
If I’d been smoking, I’d have also lit a pipeful of Gold Block, which I’d have filled a few miles back, (both hands, steering by knees), and was savouring for the M2 bit around Dartford, where all the chavs join the road and beat everyone up driving their Ford Fiestas.
I’d also have been listening to ‘Cinema Show’ by Genesis…
God, I’m glad I don’t work any more!
“Some people say”, “the BBC has learnt” (take your pick), that some Civil Servants in the Home Office are complaining that those new members of staff recruited to deal with the illegal invasion alongside them have no experience. I read this differently. What they (“some people”) have complained about is that, they, probably immigrants themselves (Civil Service = > 20% immigrants), are objecting to newcomers doing things by the book and rejecting too many illegal invaders.
Implanted Marxists the lot of them.

I read Mohamed is the most popular name
I would add, yes:
A) on postal votes where a muslim is standing for election
B) local crime news, not censored by the far left, racist bbc
The most popular boys name in the UK is chosen because of the same strong religious beliefs as those which drive the vast majority of the world’s terrorists.
That is enough reason to be concerned about it.

Nigeria: Teens upcycle rubbish in modern fashion show
The BBC push any Africa agenda item to the hilt. I often wonder how many utterly gullible Lefty cretins they have writing them.
Here’s an example:
‘A bag that would have once been used to carry shopping has now been transformed into a fashionable garment’
No it hasn’t. And that’s not a bag anyway : it’s brand new plastic sheet and not recycled at all. It still has the fold marks.
Good old BBC : always ready to lie when it suits them.
And here’s the author – fresh from the ‘young attractive female’ clone factory to identify with the youngsters. She’s an apprentice being given a big-break on the BBC front page (at license fee payers expense):
I see the recruitment rules are unchanged.

The groom may also need a burqua in case hers fell off.
the BBC won’t (I can guarantee it!) be showing you the Nigerian urban motorcycle taxi-ists who repurpose watermelons as crash helmets!
As I said above- I’ve actually seen motorcyclists with carved watermelons as crash helmets but don’t have a photo – I did find this though.
The bbbc are happy to let footballer Gary lineker bring his left wing politics into just about everything he’s involved in.
If they wanted to appear even handed and have no lefty bias they could let someone like the brilliant Matt Le Tissier have a similar platform.
That would be a simple thing to do to show they are impartial…but it will not happen.

The solution seems to be extending metro areas here.
I wonder if they integrate with the leopards or kill them for their skin.
I dare say that a subway train depot will do Mumbai far more good than a bit of forest.
And of course the BBC phrase it like the whole forest is under threat – which means it is either a very, very big train depot or a very, very small forest.
The video plays every cheap trick in the book and I looked at who made it. My first thought is why are British license fee payers funding Indian companies to make tosh like this about insignificant local issues. The bit where she has posed for the camera hugging the tree is just embarassingly bad.

India census: Half of homes have phones but no toilets
Nearly half of India’s 1.2 billion people have no toilet at home, but more people own a mobile phone, according to the latest census data.
Only 46.9% of the 246.6 million households have lavatories while 49.8% defecate in the open. The remaining 3.2% use public toilets.
Census 2011 data on houses, household amenities and assets reveal that 63.2% of homes have a telephone.
Analysts say the data show the complex contradictions of the Indian system.
‘Deeply worrying’ research suggests 25% of nurses in England are obese
05 DECEMBER, 2017 BY JO STEPHENSON
As usual the BBC story pushes the truth to the point it is a lie.
He wasn’t ‘told’ anything. Someone said ‘”you should reduce your stomach a little bit”‘. Hardly ‘fat shaming’ by any stretch of the imagination.
And the one bending the truth is yet another woman:
Isn’t it just an amazing coincidence how so many of the articles we consider to be so poor they are worth mentioning are written by women the BBC chose to employ?.
Plus, of course, being the BBC, anger… so much anger.
Except Gary. Gary seems happy.
BBC sends 407 staff to Glastonbury festival
The BBC has sent 407 people to cover this weekend’s Glastonbury festival, almost as many as it flew out to film last year’s Beijing Olympics.
Surely ONLY 407 wouldn’t be enough
Guess they can afford to waste other peoples money
How many employees do BBC have?
It is the world’s oldest national broadcaster, and the largest broadcaster in the world by number of employees, employing over 22,000 staff in total, of whom approximately 19,000 are in public-sector broadcasting.
Was that just the day shift ?
That’d be the BBC employees not subbies?
Perhaps the most striking cost is the literal one.
Those six LNG terminals are costing the government more than six billion euros. By their own admission, that’s well over double what ministers had initially budgeted and it may rise further next year.
This country learned too late the value of a secure energy supply. It’s paying for it now.
I read this too Marky. Once again, with the bbc on the fast spin cycle, making it out to be a great show of how organised the Germans are, and how well they are coping with being unable to obtain Russian gas,. In fact they cocked up big-time and and are paying extraordinary amounts of cash to make up for their own catastrophic decisions.
The facility, which once accounted for around 70% of the UK’s gas storage capacity, was closed by Centrica in 2017 after a testing programme identified problems with a number of the 30 wells used to inject and withdraw gas from the Rough gas field.31 Aug 2022
Liz Truss blamed for closure of North Sea gas storage before energy crisis
Liz Truss has been accused of signing off the closure of the UK’s biggest gas storage facility as ministers now rush to reopen the facility before winter.

In a report about the forthcoming elections in Hungary we referred to 1956 as ‘the year the Russian tanks rolled in and suppressed Hungarian freedom for generations.’
We should have said they were Soviet tanks.
Maybe they should not have used the term ‘tanks ‘- armoured mobile vehicles might have caused less offence – i wonder who complained ?
The reason illegal invaders to this Country are being stacked up in hotels is apparently because the Home Office staff handling their cases are untrained, young, inexperienced and underpaid.
Much the same story with queues of sick people in corridors at the NHS then?
You couldn’t make this devious arse-covering bullshit up!
Young, inexperienced and underpaid, that would be the same lot at the end of the phone when you call 111 for help.
But amazing how they become insistent, and pleasant when cold calling to flog roof insulation and smart meters, you can’t get them off the sodding phone then !
I find it best to just put the phone down, don’t disconnect just lay on table and let them burble to themselves.

The Supreme Court has declared the SNP does not have the power to call a referendum on scotland leaving the UK .
I m sure the BBC will do its usual unquestioning support for the ‘wronged ‘ SNP .
As an english – with little interest in what the scots want to do – i dont understand why the SNP went to court with this at all .
Is it some clever chess move ? Or just the usual hating the English obsession ?
Throughout history whenever England has been in a spot of bother (e.g. with the neighbours) the Scots have chosen that moment to invade England.
Of course England is not in any trouble at the moment so there is no chance of England being invaded by anyone …
… oh wait!
The BBC 28Gate Publishing arm?
Look at that smile. She knows it’s a safe space.
Super – wasn’t she in the Addams Family ? – was there a right to reply ? In that normal unbiased BBC sort of way One for BBCOFCOM – or maybe not …
Or as Steyn dubbed it last night – SCOFFCOM.
You’d really have to be desperate to employ somebody as dim and so far into unintentional self parody as Ms. Lorenz – I suppose it make sense that she’s “on the BBC” – but The Guardian will doubtless keep a seat warm.
Given the BBC claims to speak at the nation, I saved this one to see their reach.
Actually, for Newsnight and VD, not bad.
Anyone going on Newsnight must be desperate.
Seems to be a fairly niche bubble.
From a Theresa May speech …
As Martin Wolf, the chief economics commentator of the financial times, says: ‘The desirability of sizeable immigration is a matter more of values than of economics. It is not a choice between wealth and poverty, but of the sort of country one desires to inhabit.’

“Local church leader says WE shouldn’t scapegoat the 250 migrants in Skegness hotels”
… Now they play most of a Sturgeon speech
The quoted the Rev David Middleton “shouldn’t demonise” “the 250 shouldn’t be used as scapegoats for a broken system “
On the 5pm news they had a clip of local police saying , they have not noticed any crime increase in Skegness.
Hmm that depends are they comparing now to last year or now to this summer when obviously there is more tourists and probably more crime ?
Ah he is saying since last year.

“Britain sending helicopters to Ukraine for first time – Ben Wallace”
“The Sea King was previously used by both the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy, with the last craft being retired by the Navy in 2018.”
Retired? What an infantile way to describe it.
4 years ago, why weren’t they sold off, scrapped already.
“The UK is also supplying Ukrainian troops with winter equipment, including heavy duty sleeping bags and mats, as well as heated accommodation and cold-weather clothing.”
How exactly do you supply heated accommodation.
I could do with warm and free – coat, boots and gloves for the coming winter..
But I guess my outfit will be sent to some Ukrainian, nicely kitted out just to die for the globalists.
They’ll have to pump the tyres up, remove the cobwebs and check for mice + squirrels in the engines on those Sea Kings….
The Ukrainians are going to complain – surely as night follows day.
– seems unlikely that the helicopters will make it all the way to Kyiv under their own steam. Some contractors will trouser some fat day rates prepping them in SE Poland?

Twitter sez George Soros is dead at 92 . Can but hope …
He won’t have to worry about his heating bill then…
Germans can now longer afford gas for the showers!
I remembered reading a story about an interview with Soros which gave me an insight into the true, conscience-free nature of the man. Eventually I found it (using Duck Duck Go as I gave up trying with google).
Kroft: “My understanding is that you went . . . went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.”
Soros: “Yes, that’s right. Yes.”
Kroft: “I mean, that’s — that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?”
Soros: “Not, not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don’t . . . you don’t see the connection. But it was — it created no — no problem at all.”
Kroft: “No feeling of guilt?”
Kroft: “For example, that, ‘I’m Jewish, and here I am, watching these people go. I could just as easily be these, I should be there.’ None of that?”
Soros: “Well, of course . . . I could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn’t be there, because that was — well, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in the markets — that if I weren’t there — of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would — would — would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the — whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So the — I had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt.”
What became more interesting to me than finding the article was discovering how HARD it was to find. No matter what search words I use, I got reams and reams of Leftist sites telling me quite clearly Soros did not help the Nazis. Wikipedia for example hides it behing the sentence ‘the official took Soros with him while completing an inventory of a Jewish family’s confiscated estate. ‘.
The Sun US edition : Why is George Soros dead trending?
“George Soros dead” is trending because of a fake obituary on Twitter.
It’s not the first time Soros’ “death” made headline news.
In 2013, Reuters accidentally published an obituary on Soros.
George doesn’t do all the political interfering on his own …
Having a single bogeyman actually helps the swines foisting progressive nut-jobs into important public office positions.
The Soros “charitable” foundations are sprawling cash laden outfits with hundreds of workers in dozens of countries – yet it is very rare to see an elaboration of what they’re up to unless you actually go look at Open Society web sites…
Open Society operates with near total impunity to public challenges or any real reporting of the extents to which they have infiltrated democratic process.
BBC IMAGE WATCH-I do not know how good at geography
all of you are. But I thought that we were island in North West
Europe where 85% of the population were Caucasian.
Well according to the BBC we are not . So far as imaging is
concerned. With 3.5% of the population being black . We
are now an island in the Caribbean so far as BBC
imaging is concerned. Black Friday imaging? Its
black Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday as well , for social feature imaging on the BBC website!!

“If a race has no history, if it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated,” Woodson wrote in “The Mis-Education of the Negro,” published in 1933.
I found this extremely ironic because that is exactly what the woke are doing to white people. They are trying to to erase our history and traditions by calling them racist.
Ah the hotel in Skegness at the centre of standi up to migrant dumping, is different type of hotel
The couple less than two years ago put everything in. to setting up an Alice In Wonderland themed hotel.
Then HO offered them huge money to house migrants
so of course they refused.
There is a A4 sheet being posted that the council turned around and punished them by tripling their business rates.
I can’t confirm the sheet is genuine.
