    Nickola the Guardian/Indy journo
    ‘Oh we journalists are so much better than Suella Braverman”
    see how Nicola’s gang clap like seals

    Yet she doesn’t know the difference between ARRIVALS … and “GRANTED ASYLUM”
    look carefully at the thread and you see Twitter has put intelligent replies from righties beyond the Show More Replies gate.
    They point out that the reporter’s tweet makes an obvious mistake
    The quoted bit of the article says
    Exclusive: 86 per cent of people granted visas were women in genuine need of protection

    Yet the tweet talks about ALL ARRIVALS
    “Albanians say they are coming here for economic reasons – predominantly men”
    but “Not the case. 86% are women who have been trafficked”

    APPLES : 12,000 Albanians ARRIVED . 2,000 were women

    ORANGES : A few were GRANTED ASYLUM , 86% of these were women, and 14% were men

      OMG her bio says “Used to work for the @ukhomeoffice”
      … Is that the quality of the Home Office staff ?
      It is progress that she no longer works there.

        re: “Used to work for the @ukhomeoffice”

        The quality of Civil servants isn’t “Rolls Royce” (prop Bayerische Motoren Werke AG) – it’s more Trabant (VEB Sachsenring Automobilwerke Zwickau)

        In my direct experience it’s 80:20 just rubbish vs. good folk doing their best.

        Kelly’s output seems crafted to scoop gigs from loopy lefty Guardian, Independent and BBC / C4


        • theisland says:

          “80:20 just rubbish vs. good folk doing their best.”

          Substandard staff are a result of substandard recruitment practices and substandard training, both of which are initiated by substandard (and largely unnecessary) self-perpetuating HR departments.
          Plus all civil service applicants over the last few decades will have already been indoctrinated by Blair’s ‘educayshun’ institutions.
          The whole process is infected with common purpose, wokery and and alien mindsets etc. from start to finish.
          Only a thorough purge will suffice – starting from the top.


          • Deborah says:

            Speaking as one who knows, at least one civil servant I know was brought up properly and to question Blairism. However when recruited they had 7 vignettes of work situations to view on line and say what they would do next. Imagine at least two people in each situation and some with three. There were at least two Afro Caribbean people, two or three white people and the remaining 15 or so were all of Indian or Pakistani descent. To be clear it was the British Civil Service.

    More nail-biting over Twitter’s future from the Guardian, with a new category I’ve not come across before which seems to be giving them the willies: “free speech absolutists”. We know the Guardian are much in favour of a prescriptive or curtailed free speech, where their select committee get to practice totalitarian restrictions wearing a thinly veiled smirk and a “trusted expert” badge.

    Musk has already said that hate speech and negative tweets will be deboosted and demonetized, but his idea of a digital town square is apparently a “delusional plan” and one that’s still giving them sleepless nights.

    Understandable concerns, when your idealised vision of the future is a digital gulag instead.

    FTX relationships ?

    “Kullander is the second young crypto whiz to shock the industry with his death in recent weeks: On Oct. 28, 29-year-old Nikolas Mushegian, an early developer of MakerDAO, washed ashore on a Puerto Rican beach after an apparent drowning, just hours after tweeting about an alleged murder plot to take his life.”

    Get Farage and The Reform Party in.
    Something tells me that the true Tory MPs will jump ship ?

      Theresa May on immigration … from ‘hard’ line to ‘pink no line’ …

      2012 … “Two and a half years ago, the coalition government was formed, and we made a clear promise to the British public. After thirteen years of uncontrolled mass immigration, this government would reduce and control immigration.” – Theresa May 2012

      2015 … “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.” – Theresa May 2015

      2018 … “Over the years, overall, immigration has been good for the UK. It has brought people with different backgrounds, different outlooks here to the UK,” – Theresa May 2018

    Lazy protestors?

    “China’s protests: Blank paper becomes the symbol of rare demonstrations”

    “There was definitely nothing on the paper, but we know what’s on there,” a woman who joined protests in Shanghai told the BBC.

    Monkeypox given new name by global health experts

    Its given a new name because its RACIST 🙁

    Honestly bBC get a life!

    The racist bbc mentions Monkeypox atleast 4 times in the above link – the bbc are racists, but being a white man I knew that already

    Telegraph says national grid going to apply emergency power restrictions Tuesday – you are asked to email them so that you can be allocated the first or second half of the `wales game against woke united …
    You will also receive a discount if you elect to watch a different channel …

    Some of the above may not be true …

    … I think we should all turn more appliances on just to ‘stress test ‘ their crap system …

      Yes – it’s an enemy country – politicians always refer to them as ‘friends ‘ when it is the opposite …. I don’t think they’ve ever done anything good for Britain ….


    • MarkyMark says:

      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?



    • moggie63 says:

      I may not like the French but I certainly don’t blame them. They are the equivalent of dog owners throwing the turds over the fence into the garden of a neighbour who doesn’t even clean them up, never mind throw them back.

    Just got the power cords running out of my window
    to the Indian takeaway next door and the sunbed centre on the other side.
    Why ?
    Cos when the National Grid switch off bonus hours happen
    I can unplug both shops and they can run off their own meters at the normal price
    Whereas I will be getting £20 an hour for helping reducing grid demand

    You see Mickey Mouse subsidy programmes can be GAMED

    From the DT

    The head of the Qatar World Cup has branded some of the BBC’s coverage of the tournament “very racist” and accused Gary Lineker of repeatedly snubbing attempts to engage with organisers before criticising them live on air.

    Hassan Al-Thawadi also lashed out at ITV pundit Roy Keane in a blistering attack on the fiercest critics of one of the most controversial events ever staged.

    Al-Thawadi, the secretary general of the supreme committee for delivery and legacy, went on the attack over the BBC’s decision to begin its World Cup coverage with a monologue from Lineker about the scandals to plague the build-up to the tournament and to focus on those at the expense of the opening ceremony.

    He condemned comments by Jürgen Klinsmann, one of the corporation’s star pundits, in which the former Germany player and manager accused Iran of having a “culture” of gamesmanship, and took issue with Keane’s contention that the World Cup should not be in Qatar.

    Al-Thawadi told Talksport: “Unfortunately, I’ve seen some of the coverage that seems to be kind of pushing towards that stereotype of the Middle East. I’ll give an example: the Iran-Wales game. Iran played very good – would you say so? They were the better team, up until the 95th or 96th minute, right?

    “And yet the coverage that we saw, for example, on BBC, by Jürgen Klinsmann, talking about how it’s part of their culture, and reflecting the players in a way that was – I hate using the word but I will use only once just because I don’t ever want to give power to the word – very, very elitist, very orientalist, very racist to a certain extent.

    “When you’re sitting down looking at what was happening and you’re saying, ‘That’s part of their culture’, what do you mean by that? Was it misunderstood or was it was a reflection he was representing a culture in a very negative way?”

    Al-Thawadi, who attended university in the UK, added: “When it comes to statements that come out, for example, from Roy or from Gary, or whoever else it is, there was no engagement.

    “The sad part, for example, for me: Gary Lineker, as I was growing up, I looked up to him.

    “I used to look at They Think It’s All Over. For me, it was a show that I used to love watching. I loved the banter, I loved the sense of humour, I loved everything about it. And so, for me, it’s very disappointing that Gary never bothered to engage, and I say it openly. He never bothered to engage. We reached out. We reached out many times. In February, we reached out over three or four times, specifically requesting to engage with Gary, to sit down and say, ‘We understand your position. Give us the opportunity to put our case in front. At least hear us out. If you don’t agree then, that’s fine, that’s your decision, and that’s your judgement’.

    “But we never got the chance. There was never the desire to listen to our part of the story.”

    He went on: “The reality is, a lot of the coverage that’s come out there, the way the BBC covered the opening ceremony, the way Gary Lineker took three minutes, they never bothered to do that with any other tournament.

    “They never bothered to listen to the other side, or at least present a balanced view to be able to sit down and move forward.

    “So there are definitely agendas that are presented very clearly that are beyond football.”

    Responding on Twitter to Al-Thawadi’s interview, Lineker wrote: “Well, this is news to me. Neither my agent nor myself received any request to engage with anyone involved with Qatar 2022. I have my weaknesses, but I’m not that rude. Very odd.”

    In a wide-ranging interview, Al-Thawadi also appeared to attempt to justify denying those sporting rainbow colours from entry into World Cup matches (watch video below).

    He said: “Wouldn’t happen in Europe, but let’s be very clear: from day one, we’ve said everybody’s welcome, right?

    “But what we’ve always asked for is also for people to come and kind of respect our culture, our religion, and it’s not a Qatari culture or a Qatari religion.

    “These values that we’re talking about are regional, right? It’s for the Islamic world, it’s for the Arab world, it’s for the Middle East.

    “But when it comes to a topic like this, it is a complicated topic. This is something, for us, or for at least this part of the world, that’s a fundamental part of religious values.”

    He also admitted to having “an issue with” England and other European teams wanting their captains to wear the OneLove armband in Qatar in support of LGBTQ+ rights.

    He added: “What you’re essentially saying is you’re protesting an Islamic country hosting an event. So, where does that end? Does that mean that no Islamic country can ever be able to participate in anything?”ENDS

    Parliament’s £13 billion restoration.

    HS2 £150 billion, original budget £36 billion.

    Track and Trace £37 billion – no tracking or tracing where this money went.

    £1.1bn of COVID small business loans identified as fraud

    £4 billion of unusable PPE bought in first year of pandemic will be burnt “to generate power”

    13 + 150 + 37 + 1.1+ 4 = £205 billion

    Nuclear reactor = £6 billion


    • atlas_shrugged says:

      The Rolls Royce SMR (Small/Medium) reactors are even cheaper approx £2.3 and only require about 10 acres:

      The company’s 470-megawatt SMR will cost about $2.3 billion and will require a site of about 10 acres


      The centre of Derby has had an SMR for many years.


      • Sluff says:

        How many megawatts does the reactor in a Nuclear powered submarine produce?

        Surely this is off the shelf proven technology. If each could do a few thousand homes then get the production line going……


        • Wild Bill says:

          I worked on the nuclear subs in Barrow for years, they run the reactors to test them in what is basically the town centre, never been any safety issues.
          I have been saying for years that every town could have one of those reactors, it would only take the room of an average house.


    • StewGreen says:

      “The review, by the body set up to oversee the project, estimates the basic cost of essential repairs to the Victorian Palace of Westminster at £7-13 billion.
      It said these works would take between 19 and 28 years, with the building fully vacated for between 12 and 20 years.”

      So it could cost £7bn , much of which could come back in VAT and income tax

      MPs 650, Lords 786
      I’m not aware of any sitting one dying of Covid
      Why’s building cost £5m per member ?

        Rebuild the current facade as a like-for-like facsimile for tourist purposes.
        And behind it, build modern offices, meeting rooms, and chambers with two ballroom size rooms for the HoC and HoL.

        Cost – about the same as a new large hotel.
        Shall we say £1 bn tops?


  17. BRISSLES says:

    FINALLY ! an MP has said it. David Davies when interviewed today, said that if migrants are’nt processed within a couple of years, THEN THEY MARRY, START FAMILIES, AND ITS GAME OVER – BECAUSE THEY APPEAL TO STAY ON THE GROUND OF FAMILY RIGHTS !!!


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      That’s how the system works. After the first asylum application fails (and that will take over a year), appeal, then appeal again. It should stretch out for a few years. In that time get some slapper knocked up. Hey presto, you have a family! Obviously your human rights to enjoy a family life cannot be denied can they?

      So, irrespective of how bogus your asylum application was, you now have “leave to remain”. Ker ching! Claim those bennies and keep the nice little cash job at the car wash, nail bar or cannabis farm. Happy days, paid for by British suckers.

      Repeat 40,000 times a year.


      • Sluff says:

        …….and since the Home Office knows this, and has yet presided over a two thirds reduction in the speed of asylum decisions, and is happy to requisition any number of hotels, we can conclude that they want all the rubber ferry passengers to stay here……
        The Home Office has enacted this policy since the early 2000s. Remember ‘not fit for purpose’?
        Plus ca change, plus la meme chose.

  18. MarkyMark says:

    An internal investigation by the BBC’s Executive Complaints Unit (ECU) has ruled that the channel broke impartiality rules over its negative coverage of Brexit on Scottish businesses last year. In a broadcast for BBC One’s Reporting Scotland on December 20, the Corporation aired the following uncontested claim:

    “Brexit’s advocates say there will be long-term economic benefits, but it’s been a tough year for some of the Scottish businesses most affected.”

    A viewer then complained, quite rightly, that the coverage was “unbalanced‘. The ECU happened to agree…

    “The ECU noted the BBC’s Editorial Guidelines on impartiality say ‘We may produce content about any subject, at any point on the spectrum of debate, as long as there are good editorial reasons for doing so’, and considered it legitimate for the report to confine itself on this occasion to ‘the Scottish businesses most affected’ by Brexit.

    “However, a programme adopting such an approach should maintain impartiality by exploring other aspects of the topic within a reasonable timeframe, which had not happened in the case of Reporting Scotland.”

    How could this have happened again? Surely not the result of ideological bias… surely?

    I see the police are involved in a new Just Stop Oil protest along the streets of Central London.
    There are also some JSO protesters there but the main police role seems to be to walk with them at a snails pace and make absolutely sure the public are inconvenienced as much as possible. Why don’t the police go all the way and hold up the placards, banners, and posters?
    Totally cretinous. The police are utterly clueless, they are in denial as to how low they have sunk in the eyes of the public.

    Over the last 40 hours, the UK wind power industry has swung from producing 16.4 GW to generating 0.4 GW

    The drop in electricity production is equal to, give or take, switching off 14 nuclear power stations. That’s the reason why UK power markets are tight today.

    And talking of which, here’s how the liars at the BBC framed the story ahead of the game: “Moroccans in Belgium face split loyalties ahead of Group F match”.

    You will end up killing this show if you don’t play fair! If it’s won fair and square by an effnic then great but if it’s win by eliminating any white opposition it’s just unjust and false and eventually the program will pay the price!

    The Church.

    Pseudo Scientists.

    Charity Organisations (All)….

    Absolutely anyone in the film or entertainment industry.

    Feel free to add more…..

    To be honest I have higher regard for second hand car salesmen than most of the above because at least they are honest in their endeavor!

    When the French and then the Russians reached this same conclusion many years ago it ended up with a bloodbath…

    Also strange that the majority of the above fall under the category of “public servants” which is so laughable it’s untrue!

      Digg, ……
      Advertising Agencies who dictate the agenda .

      They are responsible for making the BAME community equal (in their eyes) in numbers to the white indigenous population.

      They are responsible for creating unacceptable ads for large corporations ….. ie Balenciaga.

      They are responsible for some really clever marketing ads – the Smash spacemen – but equally companies pay for a load of dross.

      Advertising is not a necessity in the world, we can live without it. They did once in Russia, and the planet didn’t end. But companies need it , I just see Agencies as the scourge of the modern world. I think I have ever only once bought a product as a result of an advertising campaign – Nespresso Coffee Machine, it was George Clooney wot dun it. Pathetic I know.


      • Scroblene says:

        TV advertising is completely wasted on us, because we never watch ITV or any other independents, we catch up on news via headlines on online rags, and when I listen to LBC very early in the mornings, I swipe off the ads for a couple of minutes as a matter of course, occasionally getting a gutteral Norwegian rapper voice when I mis-swipe…

        I’ve learned to ignore all the side-bar ads on the online rags now, in fact, I cut up a cereal packet once, and Sellotaped it to the screen for hours of ad-free reading!

        YouTube is a bit exasperating when a bamey sort of ad interrupts a concert, but by and large, it’s bearable!

        When the BBC is defunded, and they have to sell ads, they’ll need to bite the bullet and remember that normal people will only watch their stuff if they conform to real British standards, which I’m sure they won’t, so that’s another reason why they’ll fail in time.

      My trust in any institution or profession drops to zero once they start promoting people for reasons other than ability and suitability for the job.

      Hence my list is pretty much the same as yours.

      We can thank the Liberal Left with their quotas and constant need to virtue-signal for where we are now. Society and civilisation are going backwards. if it is not stopped, it will eventually destroy itself.

      I have a theory that every advanced civilisation will inevtiably destroy itself because it loses sight of the reasons it became top-of-the-heap in the first place and ‘mother nature’ plays her relentless game.


      • Scroblene says:

        True, John.

        I used to think that the RNLI was a worthy cause, because a friend of mine always sent out their Christmas cards every year, but when their usual ‘cheridee’ request came through our letter box a day or so ago, the first thing I thought was, ‘Why give them money to keep ferrying in illegals’, not, ‘Maybe they’ll be out there, saving a sinking fishing boat’, so that lot went on the fire!


        • Charlie Farley says:

          The last RNLI begging letter I received went back using their Prepaid Envelope with my thoughts on the Taxi Service…..it just gives you that warm feeling inside ! . Noticed on Twatter the other day a Border Farce boat with ‘Taxi ‘ spray painted on it …excellent !

    TOADY Watch #1 – I seem to recall the BBC had another view on harsh lockdown measures
    TWatO Watch #1 – I seem to recall the BBC had another view on harsh lockdown measures

    Events in China very much in the lead concern for both programmes today. The BBC being their usual hypocritical selves decide to take the side of the demonstrators in Beijing, Shanghai and elsewhere in China against lockdowns. Funny thing, Labour and the Regional Parliaments were very keen on Lockdowns to combat Covid-19 in 2020 and 2021 and so were the BBC it appears; giving the Lockdown Fanatics lots of airtime, but now they are not so keen it appears.

    Funny old world, isn’t it?

    It had to happen. A new production of Sherlock Holmes with the role of the super sleuth played by a woman.

    Yes. Sherlock will be played by Eddie Izzard.

    ”Eddie Izzard: comedian is set to play Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic character in new BBC adaptation of Sherlock
    Eddie Izzard has reportedly landed the role of Sherlock Holmes in yet another adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective”

    Possibly Sherlock’s daughter. Has she got a willy? Elementary my dear Watson.



    • Jeff says:

      The BBC are now referring to this freak, Izzard, as “she”. He gives me the bloody shivers…

      I saw him a few months ago at Speakers’ Corner. He was all dolled up like some grotesque pantomime dame. He looked more like Widow Twanky or one of the Ugly Sisters than anything approaching a real woman.

      I mean, each to his own, live and let live and all that, but…

        Hello Jeff

        I once said Dame Greta Thunberg looked like a Trannie and was banned for free speech on Facebook


      • BRISSLES says:

        Kelly Mahoney (boxing promoter) is another one who looks like a pantomime dame, and when I see those painted nails on big thick mens fingers ………….. euuwwww !

        Try as they might to be a female it just doesn’t work in any sense. Then they open their mouth and this booming gruff male voice comes out. Its ridiculous and just laughable ! If God wasn’t sure when he created a being, then he sure mis-fired in the voice department.


    • JohnC says:

      I think he/she/it would be quite good as long as he/she/it plays it as nature intended.

      But if Eddie plays it in drag, there should be some serious questions about how the BBC is choosing to spend license-fee payers cash.

    China Covid: BBC journalist detained by police during protests

    Just look at this BBC tw@t who got arrested in the video.

    The BBC don’t employ ‘journalists’ now, they employ left-wing activists who want to make the news, not just report it.

    I wonder how many of the Afghan women they have thrown under a bus when they lost interest have suffered in the wake of the BBC’s agenda-pushing.

    The BBC should have had their wings clipped a long time ago. They now think they are the worlds morality police. OFCOM are a complete joke.

    ⅕Rishi Sunak: Golden era of UK-China relations is over

    “He added that the UK would work with allies including the US, Canada, Australia, and Japan to “manage this sharpening competition, including with diplomacy and engagement”

    In other words his nasty globalist chums vrs the traditional nationalist BRICS countries.

    ‘Mr Sunak told the audience of business leaders and foreign policy experts that, in the face of the protests, China had “chosen to crack down further, including by assaulting a BBC journalist”.’

    Not to be confused with his government cracking down on us for 2 years..

    A rumoured photo of the Chinese police captain who randomly assaulted a protester, who turned out to be a BBC “journalist”


    Apologies for lowering the tone of the site….


    • atlas_shrugged says:

      I find all this faux outrage and our MPs getting their panties in a bunch about a bBC reporter getting shoved around just hysterical.

      Did the UK not have one of METs finest whip a girlie off the street during lockup for a bit of sadistic murder?

      Were lockup protesters in Hyde park not cracked over the head with battons?

      Why is the bBC not labelling these Chinese protesters as ‘anti-vaxers’ and demanding that they have all health treatment withdrawn or chucked in a gulag?

    Palliative care: ‘My dad should not have been expected to die in office hours’

    And here again we have a BBC article which is 99% empathy and 1% news. A man in the final stages of cancer died. Very sad but many, many families go throught this – and much worse. It’s life.

    ‘Although she did not feel her father should be in a hospital, she called 999 as she felt she had no-one else to turn to. He died in the early hours of the next morning.

    “In his hour of need I feel I let my dad down,” she said. “He shouldn’t have been expected to die in office hours.”‘

    Office hours in the ‘early hours of the next morning’ ????.

    And I wonder how this story ever ended up as a front-page BBC news article ??. Did this woman call the BBC in her time of grief ?. Or is she yet another activist cynically trying to use her story to discredit the government ?. Or did the BBC seek her out by researching every death looking for something they can write about to show how compassionate and caring they are whilst criticising what the government have done ?.

    If there is money to spare, they should be pushed to spend it to save lives where people can make a recovery – such as getting quicker action for stroke victims. When my dad had one, the doctor on the phone said it just sounded like a virus then when he eventually got to hospital, he was just laid around for hours before anyone actually did anything.

    Everything is somebody else’s fault to the Left.

    It will come as no surprise when I show you a picture of who wrote it:


    But I suppose they probably took her on because of agenda reasons rather than ability, they have to pay her salary and this kind of article is probably the only thing she can do.

    BBC lefty news –

    1 ‘harmful but legal ‘provision dropped from the online censorship bill

    2 crap NHS neurologist

    3 some lefty academic wants you to pay for ‘free ‘ school dinners ( because of inadequate ‘parents ‘)

    4 rabid nationalism played out through football

    Then there is

    Red labour to impose 20% vat on private school fees

    NHS sending people abroad for operations ( Albania ?)

    So plenty of socialism around this morning

      The World Cup
      After a week – what can be said about the World Cup ? Overhyped – and boring – and low quality . Game after game with 0 -0 at half time . Pallid -tedious – with Mexican waves to hold off bored spectators . More interesting counting the empty seats .
      Wales v Woke – more hype hype hype – will the Welsh kneel down ? Wear badges ? ‘Make statements ? ‘

      I’m hoping for a dodgy ref – a wales win – or a boring 0-0 with one of the wokes being sent off …. But really – yawn …who cares ….


    • taffman says:

      “Fear of power cuts”
      Here’s a point to ponder on, as we all cut down on energy use, the energy companies sell less and so their profits are cut .
      Could we see more energy companies go bust ?


      • Fedup2 says:

        Taffman – I doubt it – most of the ‘new entrants ‘ so favoured by the dumb government – are gone . I think only ‘octopus ‘ is left now . The others are pretty big – and energy use is rising ( population !) so it’s unlikely they’ll go to the wall .

        Anyway – if a power company fails sunak will just cut down another money tree . …

        …. I’m waiting for the BBC to start the campaign to supply free power to all – apart from the taxpayers who will be paying for it ….

        My next door neighbour – 95 – has been told she’s about to get another £600 hand out . She doesn’t know what to do with it ….

        At least I know where the tax I pay goes ….

    The BBC seems to think the views of the father of a 14 year old girl who self harmed her self to death after being allowed unrestricted internet access are all that is needed to censor the internet .
    Compassion trumps everything . One case closes a door on the internet to all in the UK for ever .

    He is never asked what he did as a parent to care for his daughter . I don’t know the answer – but it’s a factor in his daughters ‘ death . He relies on the views of the coroner who heard the account of he daughters ‘ journey to suicide.

    But other views about freedoms of speech – internet freedom – is not aired . The default of the BBC is always to close down freedom . And once it’s gone it’s gone .

    I hope the censorship act is unworkable .


    • popeye says:

      I have a problem with the Online Harms Bill. The Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) was sold as an anti-terrorist measure. It was first used to arrest an 80-year old heckler at the Labour Party conference in Brighton. The Regulatory Investigative Powers Act (RIPA) was also introduced as an anti-terrorist measure. It was used by a council to check on residents putting bins out early. Give a bureaucrat or politician any power and they will misuse it, guaranteed. Can you imagine how happy they will be with the power to stop online wrongspeak?

    Only a couple of Days to go to the City of Chester by-election.
    It was held by Labour before but the Lib Dems were the only party gaining ground in the last election 2019.
    I haven’t heard a thing about how the campaigns are going
    this time. Reform need to make a mark this time. Last time they (as the Brexit Party) came last in a field of five. It would not be a good look to come last again. They should beat the living dead (Ukip) But have they done enough to beat the Monster Loonies?

    I hope Reform do well. Their candidate is Jeanie Barton. Is there anybody on here that lives in or near Chester that can give us some local knowledge? Are there Reform posters up around the place are they leafleting in the streets? Perhaps holding public meetings? What’s going on chaps?

    BBC reports a big volcano is erupting . Surely it should be banned in the name of ‘net zero ‘? But I’d like to know an estimate of how much CO2 is being emitted by this illegal volcano ….
    …. Is it – perhaps – the equivalent of all the gas emitted by a little country like Blighty ? Are we all be made to waste money and time fighting nature ? ….

    The BBC News website has had a full coat of white wash today.

    The top section main of the website has photos of 6 people all of which are non white people:
    Photo 1: Black father and black son
    Photo 2: Rishi Sunak
    Photo 3: Two black football players (to represent Wales vs England match)
    Photo 4: Some sob story about Alishah not getting free handouts.

    The BBC really hates whites.
