    Can’t stand the bloke Kanye West (Ye!) always seen him as an entitled Pratt. However what appears to be going on reveals the inner machinery of the woke left perfectly.

    K blathers a few derogatory remarks in his loud-mouth manner about one of the left’s causes and bingo, suddenly invisible people creep out of the slime to start throwing shite at him for alleged past behaviour. None person him in fact.

    Even more despicable, the big US corps like Adidas who have made a load from using his name bow to the lefties and ditch him like a hot potato.

    The left is a cult and if you cross them they will bury you reason or not!

    “Calais migrants: French rescuers failed to help sinking boat”
    “But French operators continued – for more than two hours – to urge passengers to call the UK for help, documents suggest, even when a French patrol reported that the boat was still in French waters.”
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-63728830

    Yes, the French don’t want them .
    Remember , the INVADERS put their own lives at risk.
    We have a government that cannot, or doesn’t want to secure our borders or our nation. Get rid of the government in the interest of our national security .
    We have a national emergency !

      “Overall, an estimated 1.1m people migrated to the UK in the year to June. After subtracting those who emigrated, the UK population has risen by 504,000 – the net migration total.”

      Wonder what the male to female ratio is.
      A personal account – sat travelling on the London tube, there always seems to be at least 2 to 3 or even more males for every female on the row of seats opposite.
      Can’t make for a healthy, balanced society.

        Plot
        In Calcutta, India, Catholic priests promote the adoption of Indian children by those back in Belgium as a form of charity. When the Belgian government realizes that the number of Indian children raised in Belgium has reached 40,000 in just five years, an emergency policy attempts to halt the migration. Desperate for the chance to send their children to what they call a “land of plenty”, a mob of desperate Indians swarms the consulate. As a Belgian aid worker works through the crowd, an Indian gong farmer known only as “the turd eater”, carrying aloft his monstrously deformed child, begs him to take them back to Europe, to which the worker agrees.

        The worker and farmer bring the crowd to the docks, where there are hundreds of ships once owned by European powers, now suited only for river traffic. Nevertheless, the crowd boards, and a hundred ships soon leave for Europe; conditions on board are cramped, unsanitary and miserable, with many passengers including children publicly fornicating. As the ships pass “the straits of Ceylon”, helicopters swarm overhead, capturing images of the migrants on board to be published in Europe. Meanwhile, on the Russian Far East, the Soviet troops see masses of Chinese ready to enter Siberia but are reluctant to fight them.

        As the fleet crosses the Indian Ocean, the political situation in France becomes more charged. At a press conference about the crisis, a French official who offers a speech in praise of the migrants is confronted by a journalist who claims he is merely trying to “feed the invaders” and demands to know if France will “have the courage to stand up to” the migrants when they reach France. The official decries this question as morally offensive and threatens to throw the journalist out when he continues to yell. Other journalists seek to inflame tensions between the French and Africans and Arabs already living in the country. Over time, these journalists begin to write that the migrant fleet is on a mission to “enrich, cleanse and redeem the Capitalist West”. At the same time as the fleet is praised by those in Paris, the people of Southern France, terrified of the migrants’ arrival, flee to the north.

        As the fleet approaches the Suez Canal, Egyptian military forces fire a warning shot, causing the fleet to steer south, around the Cape of Good Hope. To the surprise of observers, the apartheid regime of South Africa floats out barges of food and supplies, which the migrants throw overboard. The international press is thrilled, believing the rejection of these supplies to be a political statement against the apartheid South African regime. Western leaders, confident the migrants will accept supplies from their “more virtuous” nations, organize a supply mission, funded by governments, charities, rock stars and major churches, to meet the migrants off São Tomé. However, the fleet does not stop for these barges either, and when a worker from the Pope’s barge attempts to board one of the ships, he is strangled and thrown overboard. The press attempts to contain coverage of the murder.

      ‘We are very quickly loosing our identity as a nation’

      Yep, that’s the general idea. By definition, globalists don’t believe in nations. Nations are defined by their borders – so they have to go – but more so by their people. So, change the people and you change (destroy) the nation. That’s what migration is about. Economic benefits for the elitists, and interesting crime cases for left wing lawyers, are just the cherries on top of the cake.

      Today the BBC journalists Michael Keohan and Colin Campbell released a shocking report on the channel crossings. It showed people smugglers selling their wares brazenly in the migrant camps and many children living in unsafe and dangerous conditions, as well as—this is breathtaking—a free French public bus service that migrants can use to travel directly from the camps to the Dunkirk departure beaches. Will my right hon. Friend allow a statement on the issue of tackling the small boat crossings and the Government’s response in their work with France?

    THese people are laughing at us all….

    “Every winner at last night’s Spectator Parliamentarian awards gave a decent speech, though Guido tips his hat to Theresa May for bringing the house down with this one. ”
    order-order.com

    …..

    Between 1995 and 2010, the committee found an associated displacement of 160,000 British workers. For every additional one hundred immigrants, they estimated that 23 British workers would not be employed. {gov.uk dec2012}

    So, there is a ‘lump of labour’ fallacy in the immigration debate, but there is also a ‘zero displacement’ fallacy. And government must never again make the mistake of falling for it.

    Headline news that the Tories open borders policy allowed in a record 504 000 migrants to Britain last year. This is not including the illegals who aren’t counted in these figures, and it begs the question how Red Labour could be any worse than they are, and how much longer the UK can go on under this level of total incompetence and melfeasance by its political elite.

    SImon Shama…. “THE BBC IS SCARED OF UNLEASHING ME”

    “..I’m slightly amazed at our colleagues (Simon Schama BBC@£200K) ability to get big laughs on gang rape…I’m not much of a feminist but I draw the line at the 3 year old getting raped, and the seven year old getting gang raped in a basement.

    Suggest you watch the whole debate…to form your own opinion of Simon “BBC on 200K” Schama, whose salary is from a TV Tax extracted from people who are struggling in the UK, a license that had 180,000 (near Simon’s Wage) prosecuted due to none payment. And sent 70 people to jail.

      On 22 March 2020, 7-year-old Emily Grace Jones[1] was stabbed at Queen’s Park in Bolton, Greater Manchester, England, while riding her scooter and died shortly afterwards.[2][3] Eltiona Skana, a 30-year-old Albanian woman unknown to the Jones family, was arrested on the scene and later charged with murder.[4][5]

      Skana pleaded guilty to the lesser included offence of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility on 6 November 2020. After a trial at Minshull Street Crown Court from 26 November to 4 December, the charge of murder was withdrawn by the prosecution and the jury was directed to formally return a not guilty verdict for murder.[6] On 8 December, she was given a life sentence, with a minimum term of eight years, for the conviction of manslaughter.[7] On 26 January 2021, Skana’s minimum sentence was increased to 10 years and eight months, with the presiding judge stating the previous minimum sentence had been “calculated in error”.[8]

      “Consider this, I give this example. If immigration continues at the levels it has average over the last ten years. Britain will be adding 10 million people to it’s population in the next 20 years. That means building a new house roughly every seven minutes. Now, we currently have no leadership from the Liberal Democrats, Conservative or Labour Parties saying they are going to do anything to change that course. @5:56 … if any party wishing to get into power doesn’t address this they are committing political suicide….@10:30″ {youtube – Douglas Murray – oct2015}

      … but wait, someone, who is now in power to act out their words, did mention this problem and almost suggests that ‘too high immigration’ should be reduced …

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

    The Shard is 309.6 metres (1,016ft) high. The building reached its top height on 19 June. The area of the glass façade is 56,000 sq metres (602,779 sq ft), which equals eight football pitches. There are 44 lifts, including double-decker lifts. { shard – guardian jul2012}

    The top Have Your Say comment was something like, “the BBC could do some ground breaking journalism and investigate why there are so many excess deaths. We know we are not allowed to mention it”

    It was voted the top comment for ages until it was removed for ‘breaking house rules’.

    Now officially there are 30,000 excess cardiac deaths (as previously reported by the BBC) blamed on the ‘strained NHS’.

    What speaks volumes here is the BBC removing that comment knowing what the poster really meant without actually saying it. Or did they remove it simply because they don’t like people telling them to do their job properly?

    We Muslims consider the Quraan perfect in the following respects:

    It is free of of any doubts; it teaches us absolute realities on the basis of the eternal knowledge of the All-Knowing God in His own words. There is nothing in it based on hearsay, speculations, guess, conjecture, theory, etc.

    It teaches a perfectly balanced lifestyle, a perfectly tuned system of life that if used as given, produces best human beings and and creates an optimal society where rights, obligations, responsibilities, and privileges between individuals and society, between various segments of the society — between haves and have-nots, between criminals and victims, between governors and governed, between males and females, between parents and children, between minorities and majorities, etc. — are fully balanced and at equilibrium.
    It is provides complete guidance for people to excel individually and collectively.
    Its every word has stayed as it was revealed. Once revealed, it was never edited. And it has stayed exactly in its original words since its revelation.
    Its agreed upon version is accepted internationally. Any manuscript from any age since its revelation compared to today’s accepted manuscript, recited by any reciter in any corner of the world will be the same.
    Not only its text have never changed, even the pronunciation and accent of its words has remained exactly as it was pronounced and as it was accented by the Prophet himself. There are reciters in the world who can trace their reciting teachers back to the generation of the Prophet.
    It is the only book in the world that is memorized cover to cover by thousands and millions of people in the world without any break in the generations since the time of the Prophet. There are people who could trace the chain of their memorizing back to the Prophet himself.

    It is the only book in the world that is a living miracle. No advancement in the scientific knowledge about the physical facts of this universe has been able to prove any statement in the Quraan invalid.

    No-one does ever gets bored reciting its Arabic text, even if they do not understand its meaning.

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

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

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

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

    Having more or less destroyed Christmas as a concept they are now going after the US tradition of Thanksgiving.

    https://www.foxnews.com/media/los-angeles-school-districts-thanksgiving-presentation-suggests-students-understanding-of-holiday-is-wrong

    It is clear to me what the end game is for these left-wing moves.

    Christmas and Thanksgiving have been the cement that holds the largely Christian, family-social-centric society in the US clear of the rise of Communism.

    The sad thing is that support is being given to these dark forces from a large proportion of the US education system and its high-level administrators and should be a stark warning as to the future direction of the US.

    This evil will eventually spread to the UK and on to the rest of Europe.

    It is highly liley that the individuals pushing this are virtually “employed” by Global forces such as George Soros and his open-society.

    There will come time when society has to make a call on this even if it means strife, otherwise the West is lost.

    The US has been here before and it ended up with McCarthyism to root out the operators, especially in show-business.

      Watching and listening to such past marvels, one wonders how many of today’s broadcasts would be worthy of such commemoration. The impression one is left with of the BBC’s history is the story of a once-great engine of culture, slowly running out of steam.

      ……………

      Has the BBC ever lied to me …. YES.
      “Gavin Hewitt in 2015 replacing video with still photos to hide a nasty refugee pushing a pregnant female refugee and small child onto a train track, the BBC made it look like the border guards were being tough.”

      Has the BBC ever hidden news from me …. YES.
      “May 2018 the Day of Freedom march was not reported on the main website or the main news channel and is not available on the BBC £3.5bn online search page – other news agencies including the Guardian reported it.”

      Has the BBC kept the public in the dark …. YES.
      “We know that the UK MP expenses continues and should be investigated with the £3.5bn BBC New Service every year to keep the MPs on their toes, David Lammy bought a bike for £650 on expenses (Claim Ref:387540/17oct2014) which is blatant misuse of Tax Payer Money. How come the BBC don’t check up each year?”

      Has the BBC ignored politician’s lies …. YES.
      “UK Politicians are on TV shouting austerity and recession but all have taken an 18% pay increase from 2010 to 2018. How can they talk for the people when the live in their own bubble?”

      Has the BBC moved from news to social engineering …. YES.
      “By 2020, the BBC wants its employees to comprise 50% women, 8% disabled people, 8% lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people and 15% people from black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds.{bbc.co.uk 14sep2017}”

      Has the BBC let journalist break their guidelines …. YES.
      “Gary ‘£1.75m’ Lineker uses his twitter account to say Brexit is bad, EU is good. But not once has he confronted Jacob Rees-Mogg or Nigel Farage to talk about it. It is a one sided echo chamber.”

    The shooting at a Walmart, in the former colony of Virginia, did not stay on the news for long. The BBC is still carrying an article on it, with emphasis on the victims. See if you can guess why there is a special emphasis:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-63724716

    However, they have not yet managed to find a photo of the accused. Look at this site, scroll down a bit to the picture of the accused, and see if you can work out why not:

      He tried to squeeze out some childhood memory that should tell him whether London had always been quite like this. Were there always these vistas of rotting nineteenth-century houses, their sides shored up with baulks of timber, their windows patched with cardboard and their roofs with corrugated iron, their crazy garden walls sagging in all directions? And the bombed sites where the plaster dust swirled in the air and the willow-herb straggled over the heaps of rubble; and the places where the bombs had cleared a larger patch and there had sprung up sordid colonies of wooden dwellings like chicken-houses? But it was no use, he could not remember: nothing remained of his childhood except a series of bright-lit tableaux occurring against no background and mostly unintelligible.

    A Chinese university has decided to liven up its annual sports day by hosting a grenade-tossing event, it’s reported.

    According to the China Youth Daily newspaper, the North University of China in the city of Taiyuan, northern Shanxi province, has decided to introduce a “500-gram grenade toss” to its track and field event in May.

    One teacher, Li Jiangxi, told the paper that the school had noted the earlier reluctance of students to take part in annual javelin and discus contests.

    However, after the school decided to replace these contests with the grenade toss, Ms Li said that there had been a surge of interest.

      They have form (allegedly corrupt FIFA doing anything to keep the host nation going):

      How The 2002 World Cup Became The Most Controversial Tournament in Recent Memory

      The 2002 World Cup is remembered as the tournament of Ronaldinho, Rivaldo and Ronaldo. However, thanks to referees, the golden goal rule and South Korea, it is also considered one of the most contentious of all time.

      The 2002 World Cup should by rights be remembered as the tournament of the underdog. Senegal beat holders France in the group stage before dumping out Sweden in the Round of 16; Turkey advanced to the semi-finals before losing by a single goal to Brazil; and host nation South Korea went on a run which included knockout triumphs over Italy and Spain. The final in Yokohama may have ended up as a straight fight between Germany and the Seleção, but it was the upsets of the previous rounds which sent reverberations around the globe.

      The first contentious decision of the tournament would take place six years before it had even begun, when Japan and South Korea were selected as joint hosts in the summer of 1996. Having initially presented rival bids for the competition, it was the first (and, to date, last) time that two nations would share hosting duties for the World Cup, with neither country having the infrastructure required to go it alone. The fact that Japan had never qualified for the World Cup at the time of bidding raised numerous eyebrows, as did the obvious logistical issues for fans travelling across the seas between venues. Meanwhile, the time difference meant that European fans would have to watch their matches in the morning, disturbing the working day for millions of viewers. As the first World Cup to be staged in Asia, many accused FIFA of putting political expedience over supporter convenience, with questions over the football culture in South Korea and Japan almost as persistent as they are now with regards to Qatar.

      These complaints could be dismissed as Eurocentric snobbery, of course, and FIFA were never going to be deterred from exploiting new markets by the grumbling from football’s anciens régimes. In the end, fan culture in South Korea came as a pleasant surprise to many, even if there was less enthusiasm in Japan after the Samurai Blue were knocked out by Turkey in the Round of 16. Under the professorial management of Guus Hiddink, the Koreans far outdid their rival co-hosts, whipping up a storm of World Cup mania from Gwangju to Ulsan, Daegu to Seoul. Storm metaphors were popular at the time given that the World Cup took place in the monsoon season – another major gripe ahead of the tournament which dissipated as things got underway – but also because of the thunderous criticism which came about as a result of South Korea’s success.

      The group stage went by with relatively little incident for the Koreans, who notched convincing wins over Portugal and Poland as well as a 1-1 draw with the United States. There was considerable kvetching from the Portuguese after both Beto and Joao Pinto were sent off in their match, but in truth the Red Devils had deserved the win and went on to top the group fair and square. Where the fairness of proceedings came into question was in their Round of 16 clash with Italy in Daejeon, which they won 2-1 after striker Ahn Jung-hwan headed a golden goal past Gianluigi Buffon three minutes before the game went to penalties. Italy had been underwhelming all tournament despite boasting the talents of Maldini, Cannavaro, Totti, Nesta, Inzaghi, Materazzi, Vieri and the like, but the manner of their defeat left a bitter taste in the mouths of fans and the establishment back home.

      Hiddink set South Korea up in an aggressive 3-4-3 formation, and their energetic high press caused the Azzurri serious problems from the off. Though Christian Vieri scored the opener for Italy near to the 20-minute mark, their supporters became increasingly agitated by what they perceived to be a steady flow of unpunished fouls. As it was, Ecuadorian referee Byron Moreno allowed the Koreans to continue their robust pressing game with near impunity, and their tactics paid dividends. They hustled the Italians into conceding a goal late on, before Ahn Jung-hwan came up with his decisive intervention in extra time. In the meantime, the Italians fell victim to an unbelievable litany of refereeing errors. Francesco Totti was harshly sent off for diving; Damiano Tommasi had a goal wrongly disallowed for offside; Choi Jin-cheul two-footed Gianluca Zambrotta and Kim Tae-young threw an elbow at Alessandro del Piero without consequence, even if the Italians were less than blameless in the rough and tumble of the game.

      Back in Italy, many refused to recognise that South Korea had won the match, while in an act of petty vengeance Jung-hwan had his loan cancelled at Serie A side Perugia. The headlines were suitably Biblical, while legendary sports journalist and commentator Giorgio Tosatti wrote in Corriere della Sera: “Italy have been thrown out of a dirty World Cup where referees and linesmen are used as hitmen.” Conspiracy theories began to swirl around the ref, and Moreno was later investigated by FIFA on account of “a number of controversies.” At the time, however, Sepp Blatter insisted that the mistakes had been down to “human not premeditated errors.” The prevailing opinion in Italy was that the match had been manipulated so as to keep the host nation in the tournament, and that FIFA’s grand ambitions in Asia had been prioritised over the integrity of the result.

      When South Korea knocked out Spain on penalties in the quarter-finals, the fury of the European media was multiplied tenfold. This time Egyptian referee Gamal Al-Ghandour was at the heart of the controversy, having disallowed two perfectly good goals as – over on the sidelines – Spain coach José Antonio Camacho anxiously secreted two of the biggest sweat patches football has ever seen. Raging in the pages of The Telegraph, Paul Hayward wrote: “The records say that the Koreans knocked out Spain in a penalty shoot-out in Gwangju on Saturday. The records are a lie and this tournament has descended into farce.” He also railed against the internal politics of referee selection, calling FIFA’s decision to appoint officials from minor footballing nations “anti-meritocratic.”
