    “Islamist terrorist disciple of hook-handed hate cleric Abu Hamza is quietly deported from US back to Britain after serving seven years for trying to start terror training camp in Oregon

    Haroon Rashid Aswat found guilty of trying to start terror training camp in 2015 
    Islamic terrorist disciple of Abu Hamza was deported by US authorities to UK 
    Was sent to Heathrow from Boston a week ago but unclear where he is now
    Aswat plotted the camp with hate preacher Hamza when he moved to London”

    Two boys, 16, die after being stabbed a mile apart in London

    No information whatsoever is given.

    ‘The Metropolitan Police urged anyone with information to contact them.’.
    Not a chance anyone will do that. These people live by the laws they brought with them, not ours.

    Now we have the standard procedure to cover it all up by slowly releasing details so the story has died down before we learn the truth. The BBC won’t mention it again until someone is actually arrested for doing it. And as usual they probably won’t be identified either ‘for legal reasons’.

    What a shining example our centre of diversity and multi-culturalism sets for the rest of the country. Which is now being stuffed with more from the 3rd world so the middle-class liberal-left can show just how morally superior they are to everyone else.

    But not anywhere near where they live of course.

    I have been advocating promoting and adopting methods of halting tax flowing into the Exchequer for some years now. That in an attempt to curb the reckless behaviour of the Government who enjoy wasting taxpayers money. Also toward bringing them to heel. Seems I have a fan. Neil Oliver. Go! Neil and maybe you can add on ‘Spoiling the Ballot’ if voting is the only other way to obtain change.

    Maybe there are some unexpected readers of the Biased BBC blog looking to the level headed older generation to gain ideas?

      “We should not be afraid.”

      “The bold effort the present (central) bank had made to control the government . . . are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it.”

      “Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves.”

    Brussels and sprouts edition

    Journo Isabel Hardman, gifted a column in the Observer shafts the Tories with it: Tory legacy After 12 years in power what have the Conservatives achieved?

    Well, there’s…  The Tory wet… I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! Soak it up: Matt Hancock in yesterday’s Cyclone bush tucker trial (Sunday People) – pictured frontpage wearing what can only be described as a pair of Kylie Minogue’s cast off gold lamé hot pants. Possibly considered Australian national costume – but strictly for the Sheilas, surely? And those with – how shall we say… the physique of a gazelle, or a Kylie? I suppose if Eddie Izzard can cross-dress and stand for Parliament…

    But… so as not to dwell on one rogue Tory with a suggestive name we return to Ms Hardman’s Monty Pythonesque question – What have the Tories ever done for us?

    Well, there’s all the Green nonsense: Gove fuels Tory revolt as he backs onshore wind farms (Sunday Telegraph)

    There’s Gay Marriage, you can’t now buy a 100-watt incandescent light bulb, we’ve had two years of small business destroying on/off Lockdowns, enormous inflation stoking public spending, money printing and borrowing, then there’s our wide open door to Hyper-Immigration: Manston failures led to migrants ‘with dipththeria’ being moved around UK (Sunday Times)

    But Isabel, dear, clearly the Tories disappoint you as having under-achieved. And so you frame your question as what have the Tories achieved? They’re not supposed to change things – the clue is in the name… Conservative. They’re supposed to conserve.

    Just a tad of background on our Isabel – former President of the National Union of Students, assistant editor of the leftist Spectator magazine, named Journalist of the Year at the Political Studies Association’s annual awards, frequent BBC guest – so we’re sensing not exactly a super friendly critic of the conservative tendency.

    Hardman began a relationship with a political cock in 2016 – not Matt Hancock this time but John Woodcock.

    Who he? Life Peer, former Labour and Co-op MP, now cross-bencher in the Lords, subject of a sex-texting scandal when a former staff member made complaints circa 2017 causing him to fall out badly with the Corbynite Labour Party. Citing a witch hunt against moderates, he strenuously denied any inappropriate behaviour on his part but got our Isabel Hardman up the duff shortly after he joined an anti-Brexit grouping of MPs known as The Independents in July 2019. They married in 2021 (Woodcock and Hardman, not Woodcack and The Independents) she becoming Lady Walney into the bargain.

    Dishonourable members – that’s the Daily Star Sunday’s thought for the day – giving us a fair litmus test of public opinion of our current crop of politicians. There’s a whiff of something unpleasant in the air at Westminster – and it’s not just that renown species of veg on the seasonal menu: Sprout of order… The snouts are in the trough again, folks! Inflation? MPs will stuff faces with a 5-course Xmas meal at same price they paid in 2021 (Daily Star) – wasn’t that Christmas cancelled? Or am I thinking of Christamas 2020?

    Whatever the state of the nation, our left liberal Blairites do seem to still prosper. The only significant blot on their horizon is Brexit. But they’re working on it: Blow to Brexit as ‘landmark’ new deal sees trade slump. Key agreement with Japan branded a failure. Figures come as UK lags behind its rivals (Observer)

    One doubts even the Tories have the sheer brass necked effrontery to be seen to take us back into the EU.

    Whereas, just as football pundits in seemingly concerted chatter call for the England captain Kane to be rested on the bench: Does Gareth Southgate trust Harry Kane too much? Match of the Day’s Mark Chapman, Jermaine Jenas and Ashley Williams discuss… (BBC); Start Foden and rest Kane, Cole tells Southgate (Telegraph); England’s Harry Kane needs a rest – Alan Shearer (BBC)

    So we can envisage the Tories taking a time out and Labour’s Sir Keir having his moment – and just look at all this mess we’re in… EU reentry can be back on the agenda.

    I’m guessing the plan would be a preliminary agreement with Brussels involving little detail other than big economic prospertity promises.

    This followed by a referendum – or should that be a referen-dumb (?) online electronic casting of votes, including 16-year-olds, along with recent migrants and visitors included, on the Welsh government electoral model – then having secured a reversal of 52-48 as endorsement for reentry – all the bad news about our new rules can then be thrashed out with Brussels.

    The ground is being laid for the Tory lay-off: Thousands in 12-hour A&E waits every day (Telegraph) – but we know the Tories dare not reform the NHS – sophisticated liberal-minded voters concerned about their health will reason that only a moderate Labour administration could ever tackle that life-threatening blob.

    Police failings a ‘damning indictment’ of Tory rule (Observer) – liberal-minded law and order voters (I assure you they exist) will perhaps recall Tony Blair talking fairly tough on crime. And could Labour really do any worse?

    Migrants housed in forces homes… Plans to move refugees into military units while 2,500 British veterans are homeless (Sunday Express)

    Come on goal hanger Starmer, it’s a wide open goal – he sees the target, he shoots, he… Sir Keir Starmer: Britain’s ‘immigration dependency’ must end in CBI conference speech (Sky News); Keir Starmer: Immigration not quick fix to NHS problems (BBC) – well, soon enough, we’ll see if he scores.

  9. Sluff says:

    I’ve received an energy reduction payment of £66. I’ll get one for each of the next 6 months through the winter.

    This will bring my actual bill down to about the same level as 2 years ago,

    So…what’s all this about eating or heating that the BBC delight in propagandising at every opportunity?

    And PS the winter fuel allowance for pensioners has also gone up.

    Given that the £66 monthly rebate is fixed, by my reckoning there will be a few million people out there who will actually turn a profit on the whole thing. Courtesy of current and future taxpayers. If we arrange that Mrs S gets only a gas bill and I get only an electricity bill do we get double bubble?

    The socialists currently in government are scared witless of negative publicity from any and every hard luck story. Irony of ironies. Look at where it’s got them.


    • Eddy Booth says:

      I wonder how many of those righteous citizens who regularly look down their noses at, and vent about precieived welfare scroungers, turn down this new £66 a month, government benefits handout?
      Or will their windfall giros just be quietly spent at Mark’s and Spencer’s-
      the new spongers fecklessly exchanging them for wine or posh TV dinners…

    Hopefully the BBC finest might run this past a few folk before just running the house journal per usual.

      The Guardian like the BBC have stupid clickbait headlines
      The text actually says
      “The Aspen practice has just over 30,000 patients on its books; on any given Monday
      , like today, 1,000 of them will be in clinical contact with the surgery

      It’s entirely possible that a big practice might get about 1 call per minute all day
      most of which say “I’d like to book a Covid/Flu vax” “I’d like a repeat prescription” etc.
      They will have multiple call handler, even some automated maybe.


    • digg says:

      Yes I worked it out at around 20 seconds per appointment. Maths not a strong point in the Observer junior reporter room I guess….. or maybe the GP’s are having group appointments of 50 patients at a time in the car park? “Put your hands up all those with a headache!” …… “Nurse, give those people with their hands up a prescription for paracetamol….”….next…..
      Or maybe the NHS have perfected the mass laying on of hands technique and the GP just zooms round the waiting room touching everyone on the head?

      If each patient gets 10 minutes then according to my calculation each GP works 166 hours a day. That must be very tiring even using a TARDIS.

      One was a heavily tattooed single mother chav, the other was a mother of 6.

      At no point does the BBC ask these people where all their income goes leaving them not enough for rent. They did ask the politicians “what are you going to do to help?” though.

  14. pugnazious says:

    ‘What the papers say’…and first three stories are negative ones about Brexit…..of all the news going on in the world today the BBC chooses three Brexit stories that it spins as a negative….and everday now at every chance the BBC tries to link Brexit to some bad news story….even as they reported the EU was suffering a labour shortage they still managed to suggest Brexit was the cause in the UK…oh…and Brexit was good for Germany as all those Poles that would have been here go to Germany now…and yet they’ve still got a massive labour shortage….how so? And how do we have a massive labour shortage when there is record net immigration?

    Some might think we were being lied to again just as when they told us there were only 3 million EU migrants here when in fact 6 million applied to stay after Brexit.

    Just where do 500,000 migrants go? Where do they live, what schools, what NHS services, what council services do they use, what roads do they clog up, what power and water resources do they need?

    And that’s just the legal ones…the illegal migrants, the invaders, cost £3 billion a year just to house…and then the councils have to look after them under their ‘duty of care’ requirements…..a large fortune….disease, crime, overcrowding, division and distrust as society is overturned and disrupted.

    Just gotta love open borders and mass immigration.

    Pure insanity.


  15. pugnazious says:

    ‘Labour shortages felt all over Europe’

    The BBC will always try to claim Brexit causes labour shortages when we know across Europe it’s the same situation…and in Britain it’s accentuated by people deciding not to return to work at all….up to 600,000 have vanished off the pay-roll….even France is being hit by the same ‘big quit’ as people look for a better lifestyle rather than a big pay-cheque…

    ‘Since the Covid-19 pandemic, more and more employees have been quitting their jobs. Businesses are also realising that a pay cheque isn’t all their staff are looking for. So has the so-called Great Resignation or Big Quit reached France? ‘

    But if not Brexit then what? The obvious you might think….after covid East Europeans decided not to return to their jobs….not just in Britain but across the EU….so nothing to do with Brexit [as 6 million who decided to stay here might suggest]…and of course aging population.

    ‘One of the reasons for the shortage of workers in the richer EU countries might lie in the disruptions that the COVID pandemic brought to intra-EU migration.

    Gerhard Huemer of SMEUnited said: “What we see most of is Eastern Europeans having returned home during the pandemic and choosing not to head back to Western Europe now.”

    However, the Eastern European returnees seem to be everything but idle in their home countries. In Poland, for example, the unemployment rate is at its lowest in 32 years and more than half of the companies are concerned about the labour shortage.’


    ‘As Germany grapples with an energy crisis threatening its future as an industrial leader, an acute shortage of workers is compounding problems for manufacturers already struggling to stay competitive.

    Recent surveys found a record 50% of firms are cutting output due to staffing problems, and it’s costing the economy as much as $85 billion per year. 

    In France, around half of the companies recently surveyed by the largest French employers’ association CPME were trying to hire. Of them, 94% say they struggle to find the right fit – or any candidates, for that matter.

    Across the Rhine, the picture looks very similar. As many as 87% of German family businesses surveyed by the Munich-based Ifo Institute on behalf of the foundation for family businesses said they felt the effects of the workers’ shortage.

    Even in Spain, where the unemployment rate is still rather high, at 12.6%, companies struggle to find workers, especially in gastronomy, tourism, and construction.’


  16. pugnazious says:

    The BBC has been pumping out anti-Brexit propaganda for weeks now…..and now has the cheek to say that Britain is turning against Brexit….any wonder if true?

    If there were questions about Brexit it would only be directly due to the barrage of anti-Brexit propaganda that pours out of the BBC et al day in day out.

    The BBC once again trying to, and seemingly succeeding, to distort and corrupt British politics and democracy.

    It is the most dangerous peddler of fake news and disinformation out there….even this morning telling us of the ‘asylum seekers’ who had diptheria…which, they assure us, poses no risk to us at all as these ‘asylum seekers’ are sent across the country to spread their diseases.

    They are not ‘asylum seekers’ and as so many of the population are themselves migrants and likely not vaccinated they are at risk.

    The BBC and its ilk are of course to blame….firstly for encouraging the illegal migrants and then doing what it could to disrupt government attempts to manage them…forcing the illegals to be scattered across the country at huge cost…and now spreading disease along with them.


  17. pugnazious says:

    Boris’ attempt to alter the unworkable treaty with the EU and make the protocol work for all was portrayed as an outrageous illegal flouting of international law….the world could now no longer ever trust Britain and Boris had made further treaties impossible as other countries couldn’t trust Britain to stick to them.



    If you want to completely rip up the Brexit agreement and rejoin the EU that’s fine….never mind it’s both overturning an international treaty and trashing one of the biggest democratic votes ever held in this country.

    Yep…that’s fine and dandy…the BBC is quite happy with that.


  18. pugnazious says:

    The BBC and others determined to take control of the internet and information, all information, exploit the Molly Russell story….the 14 year old girl who killed herself….’due to online content’….

    ‘ ….the death of 14-year-old Molly Russell, who took her own life in 2017 after viewing online material related to self-harm, suicide and depression. In a groundbreaking verdict, the coroner ruled that the “negative effects of online content” contributed to Molly’s death.’

    Surely the real problem was whatever else was going on in her life, the root cause of her depression that made her susceptible to suggestions. Home life or school life?…maybe sort that out before casting all the blame onto the convenient scapegoat of ‘the internet’ and social media companies.

    Was Liz Truss right?

    ‘Real incomes are falling, taxes are rising and buying a home or starting a family is getting increasingly unaffordable. Scores of highly skilled workers – many of whom are already working remotely – may soon wonder whether they too would be better off somewhere else.’

    As taxes rise till the pips squeak, mortgages become unaffordable and energy bills cripple people and the economy looks to be hamstrung by austerity you might wonder if lowering taxes and borrowing long term to help fund those massive energy costs would have been the sensible answer?

    Shell is now looking to reverse its statement that windfall taxes wouldn’t stop it investing, the BBC is shocked that ‘green’ energy providers might also be hit…and stop investment, skilled, well paid workers are looking abroad for a better life than here because of all this.

    And yet lowering taxes, for the better off as well, subsiding energy short-term and not imposing swingeing windfall taxes were decreed bad.

    Tightening the screws, stopping the public spending, keeping energy prices high, imposing crippling mortgage rates at the same time is good?

    Austerity is now good? Well it was a short while ago when the BBC wanted to get rid of Truss…but now….reality strikes…oh…and an election looms [as Starmer says he will, er, lower taxes…unfunded anyone?]….austerity will be painful….and now that’s the BBC message.

    But what is their answer? You either stay out of it and let inflation rip and energy prices crush people or impose some austerity, or you borrow and lower taxes.

    Previously the BBC was all for borrowing…Stephanie Flanders was the Plan B girl…constantly telling us to borrow ‘to invest’….Keynes was her poster boy. Spend, spend, spend.

    Not so much when Truss wanted to do it…..and remember, what the BBC forgot to tell us, is that the IMF claimed that Britain under Truss would have the highest growth in the G7….but now we’re heading into a two year recession…thanks in large part to the BBC’s interference.

    But austerity is also out.

    Soooooooo…..what to do?…well, you know…..let’s just elect Starmer and see what he comes up with.

    Hmmm…what does he suggest?….well…nothing yet really but you know once in government with all the figures available……trust us….

    The City of Bradford gained international attention in January 1989 when some of its members organized a public book-burning of The Satanic Verses, evoking as the journalist Robert Winder recalled “images of medieval (not to mention Nazi) intolerance”.

          I grew up at a time when it was possible to believe sentiments like “A man on a bicycle is the enemy of no-one.”
          Trouble is, it was never really true – terrorists the world over, including the IRA, have used bicycle bombs for decades.
          My last experience of cycling was commuting in Luton. Foreign blokes would come out of junctions towards you on the wrong side of the road riding scrapheap women’s and children’s bikes. Once saw one – well, I heard him first – on a sports bike with no rear tyre. Absolute nightmare.

        • MarkyMark says:

          TERF (/tɜːrf/) is an acronym for trans-exclusionary radical feminist.

          First recorded in 2008, the term was originally used to distinguish trans-inclusive feminists from a group of radical feminists who reject the assertion that trans women are women, the inclusion of trans women in women’s spaces, and transgender rights legislation.

    I caught a snippet of an advert yesterday for the RNLI. Now, up until quite recently, when this worthy charity became the main cross-channel Uber service for illegal aliens, I used to slip a few coins in the box at my local newsagents. Not any more. They’re a bloody ferry service.

    As for this commercial… It seems things might be getting a bit tight at the RNLI…perhaps they’re losing donations (I wonder why?)

    The little drama begins with the brave lifeboat crew thrashing through stormy waves attempting to rescue some poor soul at the mercy of the ocean. If only…

    We see a young couple going about their daily life when the emergency call comes. And this is where woke takes over. It’s not the young man that rushes to put on his oilskins, it’s his wife. The pathetic poor sap is left, lips a trembling, waiting on the shore for his heroine wife to return.

    Jesus H Christ, can they do anything else to further emasculate the image of the already enfeebled British male? I’ve just about had enough of it.

    Whatever next?

    Kneeling footballers too cowardly to wear their pansy armbands…


    • tomo says:


      I suspect (as in don’t know the detail) – but I reckon that few volunteers are working the RNLI boats on the ferry service – I’d guess they’ve drafted in some freelance crew.

      as in – the RNLI are likely lying … a quick scoping of the AIS for the RNLI vessels in the Dover area would evidence that assertion ….

      Not much novel there, but it really should be clearly stated that the water taxi drivers are all unpaid volunteers – the fact that the RNLI seem reticent about that deserves closer attention.

      It is bluidy tiresome for mariners working the channel – if you call Dover Coastguard on Ch 16 to report a possible migrant boat and you’ve an English accent (even on a foreign registered vessel) – they try to get you to pick them up – I’ve not actually heard it but some bridge crew have said that they felt that there was overt pressure to intervene where no distress was apparent.

      The Piltdown Man was a paleoanthropological fraud in which bone fragments were presented as the fossilised remains of a previously unknown early human. Although there were doubts about its authenticity virtually from the beginning, the remains were still broadly accepted for many years, and the falsity of the hoax was only definitively demonstrated in 1953. An extensive scientific review in 2016 established that amateur archaeologist Charles Dawson was responsible for the fraudulent evidence.[1]

    Having managed to prevent people from the great unwashed building houses near his Hampshire property, Chris Packam is now attacking “some” supermarkets for selling mass produced chicken.

    Singled out for good practice are Waitrose and Marks & Spencer, who have may I say a certain level of customer profile having no problem paying twice the price of the others.

    In fact only the supermarkets that sell lower priced products to the same great unwashed are in his firing line such as Lidl etc.

    Basically only people with deep pockets should be allowed to partake of chicken. The rest should be content with turnips as a Baldrick would say.

    How delightful!
